Minnesota Landslide Investigation Continues

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Authorities in St. Paul are working to determine how to proceed safely with the recovery effort for a child who's been missing since a rockslide killed a classmate and left two others injured. Rain-saturated soil gave way Wednesday afternoon as fourth-graders on a fossil-hunting field from a St. Louis Park elementary school walked along a path near the edge of the Mississippi River bluff in Lilydale Regional Park.

St. Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard says firefighters and police are working with geologists to assess conditions at the site, which is at the bottom of a 30-foot cliff. He says it's going to be a ``very, very slow operation.''

When work resumes to find the child, a special rescue team will use ropes and harnesses to get to the site.

Iowa Working State Taxes

Written by

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A compromise plan to cut commercial property taxes in the state has won approval from the state legislature. The plan was approved in the state House Thursday in an 84-13 vote. It won approval in the state Senate Wednesday. It now moves to Gov. Terry Branstad, who has long sought these tax cuts.

The property tax plan will gradually reduce taxable assessments of commercial properties by 10 percent and provide property tax credits geared for smaller businesses.

The deal also limits the amount that residential property assessments can grow. It includes small income tax credits and increases the state earned income tax credit for low-income workers.

Sparta Girl Wins Google Contest

Written by

A Wisconsin teen is the winner of Doodle 4 Google's national contest with her art called ``Coming Home.''
Google says millions of votes were cast on 130,000 submissions in its annual contest to design the logo on Google's home page.

Sabrina Brady is a senior at Sparta High School. Brady says she created the art in honor of the day her Dad returned home from Iraq after 18 months of military service. It's featured on the Google homepage Thursday. It shows a girl, in black and white, moving toward a soldier with an American flag in her hand. The last letter in the Google logo is a colorful image of the girl hugging the soldier.

Brady wins a $30,000 college scholarship, a Chromebook computer and a $50,000 technology grant for her school.

An appeal by Bryan Stanley has been turned down by a Wisconsin appeals court.

The fourth district appeals judges have affirmed a decision by Judge Ramona Gonzalez to keep Stanley at the Mendota institute, for violating terms of his release from the hospital. Stanley was committed by the state after killing a priest and two other men at St. Patrick's Church in Onalaska in 1985. He argued that his failure to report having violent thoughts was not a good enough reason to revoke his release. The same court of appeals had ordered Stanley's release in 2008, after his mental condition had improved.

There are still lessons to be learned from the tornado that tore through La Crosse two years ago today...

According to county emergency management boss Keith Butler, one such lesson is not to have multiple command posts set up during a disaster. He says it's easier to have the leaders of the emergency operation all located in one place.  Butler says the command staff was spread out during the 2011 tornado, because the twister caused major damage over a couple of miles between the river and the bluffs.  He's concerned that warning time about the tornado was short, since the storm traveled over lots of uninhabited land in Minnesota before crossing the river into Wisconsin.
