To stop the emerald ash borer from killing trees in Minnesota, the state brought in a natural predator two years ago...and the tactic seems to be working.
Experts with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture have found proof that stingless wasps are breeding, and spreading through the area. The wasps attack the eggs and larva of the ash borer. They were released in Houston and Winona Counties in 2011, and this fall, the M-D-A found wasp larvae on trees that had been sampled for the ash borer. That wasp is the ash borer's only known natural enemy.
A chain reaction crash involving a school bus has shut down a state highway near Winona for several hours...
Highway 43 between Winona and I-90 has been closed since the accident, at around 7 a-m.

Just one student was riding the bus at the time, and the child was not seriously hurt.

If it's Christmas-time in La Crosse, that means it's time to honor some local volunteers for their community service, and their faith.
This year's Iverson-Freking Awards go to former Cathedral rector Father Robert Cook...Army veteran Tom Hundt...and nurse Jane Steingraeber. They join about 60 other honorees recognized by the Bethany-St. Joseph care centers for their contributions to the La Crosse area. The Iverson-Freking awards, named after a La Crosse businessman and a former Catholic bishop, have been given out since the late 1980's. The three winners for 2014 will receive their honors during a January luncheon at the Radisson.
