The trial ended nine months ago, but the judge's ruling wasn't ready until today.

Chad Schroeder should learn this afternoon whether he'll be released from prison, or committed to a state hospital. Schroeder already has served about 20 years for forcing underage girls to have sex with him, while he was a teenager in Holmen. The state justice department requested a commitment trial, to determine if Schroeder might commit sex crimes again if he's sent out into the community. Judge Dale Pasell has been weighing a decision since the trial last May.

XCEL Turning To More Wind

Written by

(AP) Xcel Energy plans to capitalize on what could be a buyer's market for wind energy this year. The Minneapolis-based utility has told regulators in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas that it will look for up to 200 megawatts of wind power by April 1. The federal tax credit for wind production has been extended to next January.

Xcel regional vice president Laura McCarten says the utility could buy a wind farm outright or just purchase power from it. But McCarten says the utility is under no obligation to buy any wind power if it doesn't find the right deal. Xcel has no need for additional wind power until 2017 at the earliest.

Xcel needs to generate 30 percent of its electricity from renewable resources by 2020.

WISTAX Concerns About State Jobs

Written by

(AP) A new report blames Wisconsin's aging population and lack of business start-ups for job growth that has lagged behind other states since the mid-1990s. The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance report shows Wisconsin consistently beat national job growth rates in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But since 1996, the state has outperformed the nation in creating jobs just 27 percent of the time.

Between 2002 and 2011, Wisconsin's growth in workers between 18 and 64 trailed 33 other states. The report says the state's aging population and lack of business start-ups are leaving Wisconsin without enough working-age adults and enough new companies to sustain growth seen in other states.

The alliance found the rate of business start-ups averaged about 2 percent in 2011, ranking Wisconsin 49th among states.

Where Are The Rabid Bats

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin health officials are warning about the threat of being exposed to rabies from bats. The state Department of Health Services warns that a rabid bat was diagnosed last week in the northwestern part of the state.

State veterinarian Jim Kazmierczak says it's uncommon to find a rabid bat this early in the year, but some have been found in January in the past. Most bats become inactive in winter, but some find shelter indoors and may come into contact with people or pets. Rabies can be transmitted if there is physical contact with a bat, such as getting a nick from a bat's tooth or claw.

Twenty-nine rabid bats were detected last year in Wisconsin.
