Written by

A rural Kendall man is clinging to life today after being pinned by a farm tractor. It happened just before 7 last night in the Town of Wellington in Monroe County. The Sheriff says the family of a 69 year old man went looking for him after he had not retured home. They found the man pinned under a farm tractor that had flipped over. The man had to be carried out of the woods by hand by the Ontario Fire department members. He was transported to Gunderson Hospital by Med Link Air with life threatening injuries.

The sand in the hourglass has run out for that festival of sand-sculpting along the Mississippi in La Crosse...

The city park board has granted permission for Riverfront, Incorporated to cancel its reservation of Riverside Park for three days this August. Riverfront's board recently decided to end the Sand on the Riverfront festival, citing dwindling sponsorships.

 

The festival ran for 10 years. Corporate-sponsored teams would spend a Friday building large sand sculptures which would remain on display through the weekend.

You never know what you might find packed away in a corner of a garage...

One Minnesota man recently went to his late grandfather's garage, and discovered 64 pounds of mercury, which he tried to sell on-line. That's the equivalent of 30,000 mercury thermometers.  The state of Minnesota bought the toxic chemical, to keep it from being released in the open. Carl Herbrandson of the Minnesota Department of Health says the liquid metal can cause a real mess.  Mercury has been blamed for brain and nerve damage, which is why the government watches for high levels of it in fish, or from smokestacks.

(AP) For the first time, racial and ethnic minorities make up more than half the children born in the U.S. The Census Bureau reports children younger than 1 who are minority has tipped past the 50 percent mark for the first time. In Minnesota, minorities make up about 28 percent of those younger than 1. State demographer Susan Brower says diversity in Minnesota has been increasing at much the same rate as the U.S. overall, but the state began at a much lower level. Minorities make up the majority of the under age 5 population in three Minnesota counties Ramsey, Mahnomen and Nobles. While Mahnomen County has long been predominantly American Indian, Ramsey and Nobles counties have attracted minorities to work in the agriculture industry.

Whooping Cough Hits Minnesota

Written by

(AP) Minnesota health officials say the state is dealing with a rising number of whooping cough cases this year. The Department of Health says in the first five months of 2012, 670 cases of pertussis were confirmed. That's more than the total number of cases for all of 2011. In the Twin Cities metro, the most populous county, Hennepin, leads the way with 219 cases. Mayo Clinic pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Thomas Boyce says the hospital usually does about a dozen pertussis tests per week. In the past three weeks, that number has ranged from 41 to 63 tests a week. For infants, whooping cough is potentially fatal, because they aren't fully immunized yet. The ailment spreads through sneezing and coughing.

More Native Americans In The UW System

Written by

(AP) Enrollment figures from the University of Wisconsin System show many more Native Americans are going to college. But their retention and graduation rates lag behind the overall student population. The latest figures from the UW System show more than 1,800 Native American students were enrolled in 2009. That's 550 more than the fall of 2005. But the six-year graduation rate is 65 percent for all students and 40 percent for American Indians. Ed Manydeeds of Eau Claire is the first Native American member of the UW Board of Regents. Cultural differences can contribute to the retention problem. He says UW campuses need a center dedicated to American Indian students. Northland College in Ashland, for example, is opening an Indigenous People's Center.
