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.
