Harley Versus State Patrol Car

Written by

WINDOM, Minn. (AP) An armed motorcyclist who was fleeing from authorities in southwestern Minnesota was killed when he crashed his Harley head-on into a State Patrol squad. The patrol said Monday 33-year-old Chad Danneman, of Slayton, was armed with a knife and had fled from Cottonwood and Murray County sheriff's deputies in separate pursuits Saturday.

Trooper Jeffery Stearns spotted Danneman on a county road northwest of Windom and activated his squad lights. The State Patrol says Danneman sped toward the squad and struck in head-on. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Trooper Stearns suffered minor injuries.

Danneman has prior convictions for making terrorist threats, felony drug possession, drunken driving and mistreatment of animals.

Where's The Donations?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Public donations to Wisconsin's endangered resources protection and management program have hit a 10-year low. Donations to such programs have dropped by nearly half in the last decade.

The state Department of Natural Resources program draws 25 percent of its funding from such donations. Sources for those include people buying special license plates or checking a box on their state income tax forms.

Wildlife officials say it's unclear why donations are declining. They're preparing a public education plan to better explain the importance of their work.

Gas prices don't seem to be moving at all...and certainly not going down much.

If the cost in La Crosse is around $3.70 a gallon now, and it's still two months until Memorial Day, what prices will we get this summer? The head of La Crosse's visitor bureau, Dave Clements, worries that people might already be deciding not to travel much this summer.  He says travel seems to drop off, once gas gets up to $3.25 a gallon.  Clements plans to advertise about La Crosse in many nearby urban areas this year...from Duluth to Chicago.
