Police collected a little more than they bargained for during one drunk driving stop in La Crosse this week-end.   Cops stopped 26 year-old Kenneth Fish at about three in the morning on Saturday.   They say he was driving under the influence but also toting remnants of a rolling "shake and bake" meth lab in the back seat.   There were bottles and bags and ingredients and a Coleman fuel canister.  Cops collected the stuff and delivered Fish to the hospital, and then gave his clothes to the Hazmat team.  Fish denied the stuff was his and said he was heading to Shopko to toss it all in a dumpster.

Degree At 16

Written by

(AP) A Monona teen may be the youngest to walk across the Kohl Center stage and receive her bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Less than three weeks after her 16th birthday, Serra Crawford graduated Sunday. Serra says she just enjoys learning. The UW-Madison registrar's office says Serra is the youngest graduate since 1978, the year records began to be searchable. At age 4, Serra was doing second-grade math. By 6, she was into trigonometry and algebra. And, by 10 she was doing college-level work. Home schooling and e-learning courses put Serra on the fast track. Intelligence runs in the family. Serra's brother, Kyler, was 16.5 when he graduated from UW-Madison last year.

Girl Shot With Arrow

Written by

(AP) Fond du Lac County sheriff's officials say they don't yet know who fired an arrow that struck a 7-year-old girl in the back. Sheriff Myland ``Mick'' Fink said Monday the girl was on a sidewalk in Campbellsport when she was hit about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. She was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac, then transferred to Children's Hospital in suburban Milwaukee.

 

 

Fink says investigators will track the arrow backward as they try to find out who shot it. The sheriff says he doesn't believe there's a threat to public safety because of the incident. He says there are no archery ranges in the area where the girl was hit, and that it's mainly a residential neighborhood. The girl's identity and condition have not been released.

DNR And The Vapors

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin regulators are following up on thousands of old chemical spills where cleanup consultants may have skipped a key investigating whether toxic vapors could seep into nearby homes or businesses. The state Department of Natural Resources says a ``noticeable'' string of site owners applied to have their cleanup cases officially closed, even though they hadn't checked for vapor leaks as required. So the DNR sent notices to all 2,500 sites in September clarifying that the vapor tests were mandatory. A review by Gannett Wisconsin Media finds that many site owners have only recently begun the tests. Hundreds of other sites may never be checked unless the owners are doing new construction or selling their properties. Unchecked leaks could lead to toxic vapors accumulating in homes and other buildings.

The search for a man who fell out of a boat at Winona is expected to continue this week...

Ralph Andring went into the Mississippi near the Winona bridge on Thursday. He wasn't able to catch a life vest thrown to him by the other man in the boat. Search crews have spent three days looking for Andring, who owned a heating and air conditioning business.

If you agree that governor Walker's job numbers are the accurate ones, then you don't have to concern yourself with federal estimates regarding how poorly the state's two largest cities are doing compared to the rest of the biggest one hundred metro areas in the nation.   The Walker administration released numbers this week showing Wisconsin actually gained jobs last year rather than losing over 33 thousand as was estimated previously by the feds.  But those same estimates also show Madison and Milwaukee as the two of the three worst in the nation for job losses, ranking two and three behind only Augusta, Georgia.  The twin cities, meanwhile, clocked in on the federal rankings as the 19th best metro area in the nation for job gains, adding nearly 20 thousand between March of last year and March of this year.
