Gas prices don't seem to be moving at all...and certainly not going down much.

If the cost in La Crosse is around $3.70 a gallon now, and it's still two months until Memorial Day, what prices will we get this summer? The head of La Crosse's visitor bureau, Dave Clements, worries that people might already be deciding not to travel much this summer.  He says travel seems to drop off, once gas gets up to $3.25 a gallon.  Clements plans to advertise about La Crosse in many nearby urban areas this year...from Duluth to Chicago.

Two students from La Crosse schools finished 'in the money' at the state spelling bee in Madison this weekend.

Akshith Mandepally from Longfellow Middle School placed third out of 48 spellers in the state finals, and Nathan Jarrett of Providence Academy came in sixth. Both boys qualified for the Badger Spelling Bee by finishing high at a regional bee last month in West Salem. Akshith is an eighth-grader, so this was his last year to compete in the bee. However, Nathan is in fifth grade, and has three more chances to go to Madison. The state winner this year, Aisha Khan of Madison, will represent Wisconsin at the national bee in May.

He's allowed to apply for release from the Mendota hospital every six months...

Now, seven months have passed since the last time Joseph Smith was denied a release by a La Crosse County judge. Smith will have another court hearing on his mental health on April 1st. The La Crosse man has spent only a few months outside of the hospital since he was committed in 2006 for wounding a city policeman in the chest with a screwdriver. At Smith's last hearing before Judge Dale Pasell in August, two doctors disagreed on whether he was well enough to be let out of Mendota.

More children in America being diagnosed with autism...

According to a new study, the occurrence of autism in kids is now one out of 50. Medical education specialist Deb Olufs at Gundersen Lutheran says parents are often blamed unfairly for autistic behavior in their kids. Olufs says studies are showing that autism is fairly common, but it's still hard to diagnose. She wants to see more programs to help children with autism become more independent, and less withdrawn from other people.

More On Minnesota Budget

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Gov. Mark Dayton's plan for an income tax on snowbirds is generating heat from people who say it could wind up driving out long-term visitors. Only people who live in Minnesota more than six months of the year have to pay state income taxes. Dayton would extend that to anyone who spends 60 or more days a year in Minnesota, raising an estimated $15 million a year.

Bruce Carlson of Washington state says such a tax would lead him to stay away. He returns to his native Minnesota to spend time at his lake home in the Brainerd area about 4.5 months a year.

Carlson says that if he stays away, the state will lose money in property taxes and registration fees on his various vehicles.

Dayton's Dog Gone

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has shared a heartfelt goodbye to his dog, Mesabi, who died Thursday at the governor's residence.

Dayton posted word of the passing on his Facebook page. He says the German sheperd died suddenly while recovering from surgery earlier in the week to remove its spleen and a potentially cancerous tumor.

In his posting, Dayton paid tribute to his ``loyal, devoted friend.'' He wrote of watching him patrol the front yard of the official Summit Avenue mansion, barking at other dogs that walked by with their owners.

Mesabi was almost 11 years old. Dayton lost a second dog earlier in his term. He has two younger German shepherd dogs, Itasca and Wanamingo, which like Dayton's other pets were named after places on the Minnesota map.
