Minneapolis Looks Back A Year

Written by

(AP) It's been one year to the day since a tornado hit north Minneapolis. It killed two people and caused an estimated $80 million in damage. And the damage along its three-mile-wide swath is still visible: tattered tarps on patchy roofs, and all the space from the homes, businesses and trees that are no longer there. Kelly Coborn says she still feels like she's entering a strange neighborhood when she drives home.

 

 

City officials say repairs have been made to the vast majority of homes in the area. And the state says 90 percent of insurance claims have been resolved. But Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman says many people found out the hard way that insurance can mean the difference between financial security and financial disaster.

DFA Says It's 'All In' For Recall

Written by

(AP) Progressive advocacy organization Democracy for America says it is all-in for Tom Barrett in the June 5 recall targeting Gov. Scott Walker. The political action committee founded by former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean issued a statement Tuesday saying its members plan to knock on 80,000 doors and make 100,000 calls over the next two weeks. Democracy for America says over the past 15 months it has already made more than 382,000 calls and knocked on 123,000 doors. The group's chairman Jim Dean says the election will come down to how many Democrats turn out in Dane County, where the liberal capital city of Madison is located. He says turnout efforts will be focused on Madison, Racine and Eau Claire.

Are Graduates Getting Jobs Within Their Majors

Written by

88 percent of recent UW-L graduates found work within their major after graduating. But Tim Tritch of career services says you may have to look deeper into that number to see why it seems so high.

Other numbers from UW-L's latest graduate survey includes 98 percent of undergraduates seeking employment found work within six months of graduation and the average salary of a UW-L graduate in the 2010-11 report was about $41,300.

County Ethics Board Meeting Set

Written by
An ethics board meeting has been scheduled for the La Crosse county administrator.  Steve O'Malley asked for the ethics board to review his advocacy for an April binding referendum that would have led to the hiring of a professional administrator in the city of La Crosse.  Under its ethical guidelines, O'Malley's professional association says advocating for a manager-type form of government is acceptable.  But La Crosse Tea Party members say O'Malley violated state ethics laws and, possibly, federal campaign restrictions.  The three person ethics board meets on Thursday.

Among the many drunk drivers nabbed by La Crosse police this week-end, was one guy who was literally falling down drunk.  Cops say 28 year-old Adam Kamla is on his third owi.  They say he nearly hit a couple when he ran a red light on Friday night on the southside.   The couple followed Kamla for several blocks and watched him almost hit several parked cars and a city bus.  Then they watched the West Salem guy park his Chevy Blazer, open the door and fall out into the street.  That's where police found him; lying facedown in the street.  Took a little bit to wake him up.  And when they did, they had to skip the field tests, because he was just too drunk to do them.

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.

Degree At 16

Written by

(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.

Girl Shot With Arrow

Written by

(AP) Fond du Lac County sheriff's officials say they don't yet know who fired an arrow that struck a 7-year-old girl in the back. Sheriff Myland ``Mick'' Fink said Monday the girl was on a sidewalk in Campbellsport when she was hit about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. She was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac, then transferred to Children's Hospital in suburban Milwaukee.

 

 

Fink says investigators will track the arrow backward as they try to find out who shot it. The sheriff says he doesn't believe there's a threat to public safety because of the incident. He says there are no archery ranges in the area where the girl was hit, and that it's mainly a residential neighborhood. The girl's identity and condition have not been released.
