Yang Gets Probation And Warning In Prisoner Beating

Written by

A 20-year-old man convicted of beating a prisoner in the La Crosse County jail is being given three years to straighten out his life.

Judge Ramona Gonzalez has stayed a prison term for Houaka Yang, and is putting him on probation for three years, but he must follow several conditions to avoid prison.  Yang and a second inmate attacked Lucas Brickl in jail last summer for allegedly being a 'snitch.' Brickl testified against one of the two men found guilty in the shooting death last March of Sara Hougom of La Crosse.

So Who Actually Lives In Minnesota

Written by

(AP) Minnesota is becoming more ethnically diverse that it was decades ago. State demographer Susan Brower says nearly one of every five Minnesotans is a person of color. The federal census says that includes blacks, Hispanics, Asian, Native American or those of multiple ethnic groups.

The diversity is even more pronounced among children. Brower says a quarter of Minnesota children are people of color. While the state becomes more diverse, its ethnic population is much lower that the United States in general. About 36 percent of the U.S. population is ethnically diverse.

Brower provided the snapshot of population trends at a House committee meeting Monday at the state Capitol.

Apples Not Ripe For Pickin

Written by

(AP) Apple production in Wisconsin has dropped to its lowest level since 1945. The National Agricultural Statistics Service says apple production in 2012 was down 54 percent in Wisconsin. Yields decreased more than three tons per acre.

A heat wave last spring caused apple trees to bloom prematurely. And then frost in April killed many of the blossoms. A summer drought only made things worse.

Wisconsin Apple Growers Association director Ann Maenner says they're hoping this year will be different and that the trees will stay dormant until the frost is gone.

Apple production dropped 4 percent nationally.
