Iowa Bus Crash Due To Heavy Snow

Written by

COLFAX, Iowa (AP) A charter bus carrying members of an Iowa college softball team has been involved in a multi-vehicle crash that closed part of Interstate 80.

The bus carrying students and coaches from Simpson College was headed east Friday morning on Interstate 80 near Colfax when a semi-trailer truck jack-knifed in front of it. School officials say bus passengers were not seriously injured. The Iowa State Patrol says several semi-trailer trucks were involved in the crash. It is unclear if there are additional injuries. Eastbound lanes near the crash remain closed.

The crash is one of several after a major snowstorm dumped several inches of snow across the state. Another bus later picked the team up for a tournament in Marquette, Mich.

Mining Bill Vote In March

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Republican leaders in the state Assembly say they'll probably vote on a contentious mining bill during the first week in March. A spokesman for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says leaders are aiming for March 6.

The Legislature's budget committee is set to vote on the bill on Monday. Approval would clear the way for full votes in both the state Senate and Assembly. The Senate is expected to take up the bill on Wednesday.
Passage is all but certain. The GOP controls both houses and Republican Gov. Scott Walker backs the bill.

The proposal is designed to clear the regulatory path for a huge iron mine near Lake Superior. Democrats and conservationists say the bill will open the door to pollution that would ruin the pristine area.

Renaming Of Hood Park Endorsed By Lax Park Board

Written by

A neighborhood park near Gundersen Lutheran could be known as Poage Park soon...

Plans to rename Hood Park for long-ago Olympic athlete George Poage from La Crosse have cleared the first couple of hurdles. Park director Steve Carlyon is leading the charge, because he worries that the name Hood Park suggests crime. City planner Larry Kirch tells the park board he's been researching the Hood Park name for years...and discovered that name was never officially approved by City Hall.  But this time, the Poage name could get formal approval. The park board already has endorsed the idea unanimously.
