Rate Of HIV Infection Rising In Wisconsin

Written by

The AIDS outbreak doesn't get as much public attention as it did in the 80's and 90's, but the rate of infection is growing in Wisconsin and other places.

The head of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, Mike Gifford, says hundreds of new HIV infections are reported yearly in the state. The number of new cases last year was up 19 per cent from the number reported in 2010.

 

Gifford supports a call by a national task force to do routine testing for the AIDS virus among patients 15 and older.

Cutting All Ash Trees Not 'Proven' To Stop Ash Borer

Written by

The mass removal of ash trees is not a proven method for stopping the spread of the emerald ash borer...

That word from a Minnesota agriculture spokeswoman comes as the Gopher State plans to use stingless wasps to destroy the ash borer population there. Liz Erickson of the MDA says a test release of wasps in Houston County hasn't lasted long enough to show that it works.  The city of La Crosse is talking about cutting down all ash trees in certain parks, to keep the ash borer from killing the trees. The park board may vote on the clear-cutting plan tonight.

Cash bond is set at 25-hundred dollars for an alleged member of the 'Get Money Boys' gang...

Du Juan Jackson is charged with armed robbery and burglary. The 18-year-old Jackson returned to La Crosse and turned himself in on Tuesday, a few days after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Defense attorney Russell Hammer claims the evidence does not place Jackson at the crime scene.  Jackson and two other young men are charged with an October robbery at an apartment on 5th Avenue South in La Crosse. The other two have court hearings on Thursday.

He was supposed to be released from prison two years ago...but the state of Wisconsin calls him sexually violent.

Since then, 52-year-old Homer Perren Junior of La Crosse County has been held by the state health department, awaiting a commitment trial. That trial is now scheduled for next month in La Crosse. Perren was sent to prison in 2001 for an alleged sexual assault of a minor. Investigators believe Perren will commit other sex crimes if he's allowed back into the community.
