Bryan Stanley will be back at Mendota for a while...
La Crosse County Judge Ramona Gonzalez has revoked the conditional release of the man who killed three persons at a Catholic Church in Onalaska in 1985. The state ordered Stanley to be released in 2009, but he admitted recently that he had experienced 'anxiety.' During a court hearing on Wednesday, witnesses testified that Stanley had violent thoughts about others, including his sister-in-law. Gonzalez ruled that Stanley violated terms of his release by not telling doctors about those thoughts as soon as they happened.

(AP) A conference committee has finalized a new tax policy bill with breaks for businesses, but less than they would have gotten in a tax bill vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton last week. The bill headed for a House floor vote Wednesday would cost the state about $46 million over the next year, but after that, only about half of what the vetoed bill would have cost. The bill would also draw less from the state's budget reserves than the previous bill. It includes a one-year property tax freeze for businesses and tax credits meant to encourage research and investment in start-up businesses. Some small businesses would get an upfront sales tax exemption for buying equipment but not as many as in the vetoed bill.
(AP) Authorities say they won't file charges in the suicide of a 13-year-old girl in southeastern Minnesota whose parents say she was bullied. The Dodge County sheriff's office says ``harassment and bullying were likely factors'' in the death of 13-year-old Rachel Ehmke of rural Mantorville last month. But the sheriff's office says in a statement that investigators found no specific incident or action by any particular student they believe is responsible for her death. And because of that, the county attorney's office has decided there's insufficient evidence to charge anyone. The sheriff's office says investigators also determined it was Rachel who sent a derogatory text message about herself to several students at Kasson-Mantorville Middle School two days before her death. The girl's parents did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.
(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says he will participate in two debates before the June 5 recall election even though his Democratic rival Tom Barrett wants him to do four. Walker said Wednesday he would participate in televised debates on May 25 and May 31. The first is sponsored by The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association and the second will be hosted by Mike Gousha from WISN-TV in partnership with the Marquette University Law School, Wispolitics.com, and the WISN network of affiliates. Walker's campaign spokesman Ciara Matthews says the governor looks forward to the debates and having a ``robust'' discussion contrasting his record with Barrett. Barrett had asked Walker to hold four debates all focused on the issue of jobs. A spokeswoman for Barrett's campaign had no immediate response.
