More children in America being diagnosed with autism...

According to a new study, the occurrence of autism in kids is now one out of 50. Medical education specialist Deb Olufs at Gundersen Lutheran says parents are often blamed unfairly for autistic behavior in their kids. Olufs says studies are showing that autism is fairly common, but it's still hard to diagnose. She wants to see more programs to help children with autism become more independent, and less withdrawn from other people.

More On Minnesota Budget

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Gov. Mark Dayton's plan for an income tax on snowbirds is generating heat from people who say it could wind up driving out long-term visitors. Only people who live in Minnesota more than six months of the year have to pay state income taxes. Dayton would extend that to anyone who spends 60 or more days a year in Minnesota, raising an estimated $15 million a year.

Bruce Carlson of Washington state says such a tax would lead him to stay away. He returns to his native Minnesota to spend time at his lake home in the Brainerd area about 4.5 months a year.

Carlson says that if he stays away, the state will lose money in property taxes and registration fees on his various vehicles.

Dayton's Dog Gone

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has shared a heartfelt goodbye to his dog, Mesabi, who died Thursday at the governor's residence.

Dayton posted word of the passing on his Facebook page. He says the German sheperd died suddenly while recovering from surgery earlier in the week to remove its spleen and a potentially cancerous tumor.

In his posting, Dayton paid tribute to his ``loyal, devoted friend.'' He wrote of watching him patrol the front yard of the official Summit Avenue mansion, barking at other dogs that walked by with their owners.

Mesabi was almost 11 years old. Dayton lost a second dog earlier in his term. He has two younger German shepherd dogs, Itasca and Wanamingo, which like Dayton's other pets were named after places on the Minnesota map.

Traveling? Get Insurance

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin's insurance commissioner has some tips for travelers taking spring vacations. Commissioner Theodore Nickel says travelers should consider buying insurance for expensive trips, but he says be sure to read and understand the policy before buying.

Nickel says travel insurance can cover everything from severe weather, illness, family emergencies and bankruptcy of travel agencies or cruise lines. By buying travel insurance, travelers can cancel their trips if emergencies happen, claim damages if their belongings are missing or call for medical assistance on the road.

Nickel says travel insurance has limitations and exclusions to certain pre-existing conditions. He says make sure any policy you buy will cover unforeseen events particular to your trip.
