Lawmakers In High Gear

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota lawmakers are bearing down for the legislative session's homestretch. Monday marks one week until the mandatory adjournment deadline. Much is left to do.

The House and Senate still need to pass compromise bills to comprise the state's next two year budget. Along the way, they are likely to pass tax increases on top earners and smokers. An alcohol tax increase is also in play as are revisions to the state sales tax.

On the spending side, the budget is likely to feature new dollars for education, including funds to help schools provide all-day kindergarten statewide.

The week was to start with another high-profile issue at the forefront. The Senate was voting Monday on whether to send a bill legalizing gay marriage to a supportive Gov. Mark Dayton.

61 Year Old Robs Kid Who Mows Lawns

Written by

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) A 61-year-old Iowa City man has been accused of robbing a boy who was looking for lawns to mow.

The boy was knocking on doors Sunday to inquire about doing the yard work when he met Kevin Shannon at one house. Police say Shannon gave the boy $10 and told the boy he was an undercover police officer.
Police say Shannon later got in his vehicle and drove up to the boy, pulled out a gun and demanded the boy return his money. The boy wasn't injured.

Officers arrived soon and arrested Shannon. He faces several charges, including felony theft, driving while intoxicated, and impersonating a public official.

Helmet Debate Still Out There

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A motorcycle rights group has a lot of power in the debate over whether motorcyclists should wear a helmet.

Wisconsin is coming off its deadliest year for motorcyclists in a generation. Three in four of those riders who were killed did not wear a helmet. Wisconsin hasn't required adult motorcyclists to wear a helmet in decades, thanks in large part to the robust lobby of ABATE of Wisconsin. It describes itself a motorcycle rights and safety organization. ABATE spokesman Dean Bartosh says riders should be able to choose what they wear when the ride.

Jackie Gillan, president of Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, says taxpayers ultimately pay the costly and lifelong price of un-helmeted riders' brain injuries.

Eight years behind bars for one of the 'Get Money Boys'...

Eighteen-year-old De'aaron Appleton is going to prison for two counts of armed burglary, for a pair of home invasions in La Crosse last fall. Appleton apologized in court to the victims who were robbed at gunpoint...but Judge Dale Pasell says an example has to be set in this case.  Appleton is one of several young men accused of targeting local drug dealers for robbery, allegedly because those potential victims might have a lot of money.

If you're waiting for the paddlewheelers to return to La Crosse...the next one should arrive two months from today.

July 10th is the scheduled date for the first of 18 local stops this year by the American Queen and the Queen of the Mississippi.  The big cruise boats came back in 2012 after being pulled off the upper Mississippi for three years. The Delta Queen is not expected back on the Mississippi any time soon, but there's word that it could be moved back to Cincinnati from its current home in Chattanooga.
