Minnesota Is Aging

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota is headed toward a significant milestone in which more of its residents are senior citizens than school-aged.

State Demographer Susan Brower told a panel of senior legislators on Monday that Minnesota is on course to reach that point in 2020. It represents the point when those older than 65 years are a bigger share of the state population than those between 5 and 17 years old.

The demographic trends are important because they suggest where future budget pressures lie. Medical and long-term care costs the state subsidizes are already rising fast, crowding out available money for other things. And more retirees mean fewer income tax dollars will be coming in.

Wolf Hunt Rules Coming?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Democratic state senator is circulating a bill that would prohibit wolf hunters from using dogs.

Sen. Fred Risser of Madison sent an email to his fellow lawmakers on Monday asking for co-sponsors. He notes in the email that humane societies oppose the use of dogs in the wolf hunt.

A group of humane societies filed a lawsuit in August alleging state wildlife officials failed to impose any restrictions on using and training dogs on wolves. A Dane County judge issued a temporary injunction that blocked the use of dogs during the wolf season. In January the judge approved dog use during the hunt but barred training them on wolves.

Risser's bill has little chance of passing. Republicans control both the Senate and Assembly.

Child Care Now Online

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The performance of child care providers in Wisconsin can now be found online.

The state has started posting the fines levied against the child care centers and the reasons for the fines. The move is backed by child care advocates and providers. The state began posting the fines online in 2008, but not the amount of the fine or any explanation.

Mosinee child care provider Anneliese Sheahan says it was unfair not to post the amount of the fine. She says there's a big difference between a $100 fine and a $1,000 fine.

Thirty-one states now post child care inspection reports online. Wisconsin's website is at http://www.dcf.wisconsin.gov/youngstar.

A young boy claims a man he calls 'Uncle Terrell' forced him into sexual activity twice...

Police say Uncle Terrell is also known as Leonard Holling of La Crosse, and Holling is going to be tried for first-degree sexual assault. Investigator Ron Secord testified in court today that he has talked to the 10-year-old boy, and to a social worker who knows him.  Secord says the assaults reportedly happened at the home of the boy's grandmother, and may have occurred as much as five years ago. Holling's trial is scheduled for late June.
