Two local homicide cases dating back nearly two years could come to closure soon in La Crosse County...

A plea hearing is scheduled for May 13th in the Heath Erlandson case. Erlandson had been scheduled to go on trial that week for crashing into a motorcycle and killing cyclist Paul Betsinger on County Highway B. Police say Erlandson was driving under the influence of drugs, and tried to answer his cellphone just before that crash in August of 2011.

That same week, Anthony Ducharme's body was found hidden on a La Crosse hillside. Cain Moss is awaiting trial for providing the drug that killed Ducharme. At a hearing this morning, a La Crosse judge said Moss's June trial is likely to be delayed a few weeks, because of new motions being considered.

How Much Money Does UW Ststem Have

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) University of Wisconsin System officials are telling legislators they expect to have $1.2 billion in reserve by the end of June.

System President Kevin Reilly and regents Michael Falbo and Regina Millner met privately with Senate Republicans on Tuesday and Assembly Republicans on Wednesday. They told Assembly Republicans the system had nearly $1.7 billion in reserve at the end of March and expects to have $1.2 billion on June 30.

An analysis last month showed the system had $1.04 billion in reserve as of mid-2012, including $648 million in unrestricted money. Republicans have criticized the system's annual tuition increases in light of the reserves. They have pledged to freeze tuition in the upcoming state budget.

Minnesota Weather

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The calendar has flipped to May, but winter has made a return appearance to southeastern Minnesota where residents are digging out of an unseasonable dump of wet heavy snow. Students in more than 30 school districts are enjoying a rare snow day in May, while utility crews went to work early today to restore power to more than 20,000 Xcel Energy customers.

The storm largely missed the Twin Cities, where only some eastern and southeastern suburbs got clipped. But the National Weather Service says the Owatonna area got up to 15.5 inches of snow, while Red Wing and Albert Lea got 10 inches, and Hastings and Farmington got more than 8 inches.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says travel is still not advised across much of southeastern Minnesota.

Wisconsin Weather

Written by

MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) The State Patrol says heavy snow in northwestern Wisconsin is a factor in a fatal interstate crash between two semis. Sgt. David Fish says one semi rolled over a slippery Interstate 94 near Menomonie and was struck by the second semi early Thursday morning. Fish says the driver of the first semi was killed.

Parts of northwestern Wisconsin are buried under more than a foot of new snow. Numerous school districts canceled classes, including Menomonie, River Falls, Chetek, Rice Lake, Barron and Durand.

The National Weather Service reported 14 inches of snow has fallen in Ellsworth with 9 inches in River Falls and 8 inches in Ashland. Utility crews worked to restore power to hundreds of Xcel customers in the region.

Medical Marijuana Coming To Minnesota?

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Supporters of legalizing marijuana for medical use are putting their plan forward at Minnesota's Capitol. But leaders of the group that will lead the charge have previously said they are not expecting any action on the proposal until the 2014 session. This session is due to conclude in a few weeks.

Details of the proposal were to be discussed at a news conference Thursday. Boosters say they have bipartisan support in both chambers.

Minnesota lawmakers approved a medical marijuana bill in 2009. But then-Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed the measure. Current Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton has voiced opposition to legalization of marijuana for any use.
