"Gull" Darn It All

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) Building owners along the coast of Lake Michigan are getting creative in dealing with nuisance gulls.

The gull population has been growing for decades, and the birds are a nuisance. They nest on building roofs, chew through wires and leave droppings that can send nasty smells into the ventilation system. Compounding the issue is federal law that prohibits trapping and moving them. Sometimes the government allows people to remove eggs from a nest or coat eggs with corn oil that prevents them from hatching.

Others have turned to creative solutions. Some building owners use lasers, noisemakers and ultrasonic waves to make the birds uncomfortable. Others use a grid of wires to make it hard for the birds to land and fold their wings.

Walker Signs Food Stamp Trafficking Bill

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a measure designed to help crack down on food stamp trafficking.

The bill that passed with bipartisan support in the Legislature would expand definitions in state law of what constitutes illegal food stamp trafficking. Walker signed it privately in the Capitol on Monday.

The law brings Wisconsin into line with the federal government's new expanded definition of food stamp trafficking. That refers to the illegal buying, selling or transferring of food stamp benefits for cash or other unlawful purposes. Trafficking occurs in most cases when food stamp recipients sell their benefit cards online and in the open market and then apply for free replacements.

In any given month about 15 percent of Wisconsin's population, or 850,000 people, receive food stamp benefits.

To Wed Or Not To Wed

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota churches are deciding whether or not to perform gay marriage ceremonies with Minnesota's law about to change. Gay marriage becomes legal August 1. One United Methodist minister with a long history on the issue won't be able to perform gay weddings.

Roger Lynn is a retired Methodist pastor who lives north of Brainerd. In 1971, he performed a wedding ceremony for two Minneapolis men whose legal fight to get married was among the nation's first. But after his actions were publicized, the United Methodist Church defined marriage as between a man and woman only.

That church rule still stands today. Lynn says he's disappointed he won't be able to perform any more gay weddings, but doesn't want to risk his pension.
