Police collected a little more than they bargained for during one drunk driving stop in La Crosse this week-end. Cops stopped 26 year-old Kenneth Fish at about three in the morning on Saturday. They say he was driving under the influence but also toting remnants of a rolling "shake and bake" meth lab in the back seat. There were bottles and bags and ingredients and a Coleman fuel canister. Cops collected the stuff and delivered Fish to the hospital, and then gave his clothes to the Hazmat team. Fish denied the stuff was his and said he was heading to Shopko to toss it all in a dumpster.
(AP) A Monona teen may be the youngest to walk across the Kohl Center stage and receive her bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Less than three weeks after her 16th birthday, Serra Crawford graduated Sunday. Serra says she just enjoys learning. The UW-Madison registrar's office says Serra is the youngest graduate since 1978, the year records began to be searchable. At age 4, Serra was doing second-grade math. By 6, she was into trigonometry and algebra. And, by 10 she was doing college-level work. Home schooling and e-learning courses put Serra on the fast track. Intelligence runs in the family. Serra's brother, Kyler, was 16.5 when he graduated from UW-Madison last year.
