So Who Actually Lives In Minnesota

Written by

(AP) Minnesota is becoming more ethnically diverse that it was decades ago. State demographer Susan Brower says nearly one of every five Minnesotans is a person of color. The federal census says that includes blacks, Hispanics, Asian, Native American or those of multiple ethnic groups.

The diversity is even more pronounced among children. Brower says a quarter of Minnesota children are people of color. While the state becomes more diverse, its ethnic population is much lower that the United States in general. About 36 percent of the U.S. population is ethnically diverse.

Brower provided the snapshot of population trends at a House committee meeting Monday at the state Capitol.

Apples Not Ripe For Pickin

Written by

(AP) Apple production in Wisconsin has dropped to its lowest level since 1945. The National Agricultural Statistics Service says apple production in 2012 was down 54 percent in Wisconsin. Yields decreased more than three tons per acre.

A heat wave last spring caused apple trees to bloom prematurely. And then frost in April killed many of the blossoms. A summer drought only made things worse.

Wisconsin Apple Growers Association director Ann Maenner says they're hoping this year will be different and that the trees will stay dormant until the frost is gone.

Apple production dropped 4 percent nationally.

Home Sales Spike In Badger State

Written by

(AP) Home sales continue to recover in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Realtors Association says sales rose about 18 percent in January, compared to the same month last year. It's the 19th consecutive month of double digit growth. The median sale price of homes also increased. It rose 3.4 percent to $123,000.

The strongest growth was to the north where sales are up 31 percent and in the central region of the state, up about 28 percent.

Realtors board chairman Renny Diedrich says January typically is the slowest month, so the strong sales point to an even better spring.

Quite A Few Charges Against Keepers

Written by

The Sauk County Sheriff’s Office has concluded an investigation of several burglaries that occurred in September and October of 2012. A Baraboo man, 27 year old Anthony Keepers allegedly confessed to burglarizing 13 homes in the Lake Delton and Baraboo areas while armed with a handgun in October of 2012. Keepers also told Sauk County detectives that he had committed thefts and burglaries in the Wisconsin Dells and Lacrosse area.

Keepers was arrested by Sparta Police on October 8th of last year after he led police on a high speed chase into La Crosse County in a stolen car before losing control and flipping his car. Evidence in the car led to information to his involvement in burglaries that occurred in Sauk County.

The investigation has been sent to the Sauk County D.A.'s Office for review and charges. Keepers still remains in the Monroe County Jail. He's in court there this morning.

The city clerk in Onalaska is making sure today that you don't vote in the wrong place. Construction at the National Guard Armory is forcing polling places there to move.

Polls are open everywhere in Wisconsin until 8:00 p.m.
