More Than Half Of Adult Smokers Trying To Quit

Written by

Anybody who smokes and is NOT trying to quit appears to be in the minority these days...

The Centers for Disease Control tell us that about 55 per cent of adult smokers in America made an attempt to quit last year. Wisconsin smokers were slightly above the average, while Minnesota and Iowa saw about 50 per cent of their smokers make attempts to stop.  La Crosse County health educator Judy Zabel says most adult smokers want to quit, and their efforts to give up tobacco are helping young people avoid smoking.  Maryland has the highest percentage of smokers trying to break the habit...66 per cent.

You Are Such A Tool

Written by

(AP) The Minnesota Supreme Court says a man's online post calling a doctor ``a real tool'' is protected speech. The high court on Wednesday dismissed a case by Duluth neurologist David McKee, who took offense when a patient's son posted critical remarks about him on some rate-your-doctor websites. Those included a claim that a nurse called the doctor ``a real tool.''

The justices say the comments posted by Dennis Laurion don't add up to defamation. They say referring to someone as ``a real tool'' is a protected statement of opinion that can't be the basis of a defamation claim. They also say it doesn't matter whether the unnamed nurse actually exists.

The decision reverses a Minnesota Court of Appeals decision that would have let the doctor's lawsuit proceed to trial.

School Voucher Discussion

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says he wants parents to have the broadest possible spectrum of choices when it comes to educating their children. The Republican governor spoke Wednesday at a school-choice event in Milwaukee. He said his goal is to improve public schools, but when there's not enough improvement families should have other options. School choice includes voucher programs, in which the government helps pay for tuition at private schools, including religious schools.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, a Democrat, also attended the event. He says his main concern is that school choice not siphon funds away from public schools.

Walker says he wants to reward high-achieving and improving schools. Without elaborating, he told reporters it's possible to expand choices without diverting resources from other schools.

Teacher Accused Of Sex Behavior

Written by

 

A special education teacher at a La Crescent school is charged with molesting children after he was confronted by his students. Thirty-seven-year-old Jason David Barker is charged in Houston County District Court with second-degree criminal sexual conduct and fifth-degree sexual conduct with children younger than 13.

Prosecutors say five students at La Crescent Montessori Academy confronted Barker earlier this month about his behavior. School staff called police and Baker was arrested at his home Jan. 18.

A criminal complaint says one student told school staff Baker put his hands down her pants and touched her breasts. Baker has denied the allegations, but says sometimes he pushes the ``boundaries in teaching.''
