Lab Tests Not Complete Yet In WSU Student Death

Written by

The final report on how a Winona State student died may depend greatly on the results of lab tests...

Winona Police Chief Paul Bostrack is waiting for a lab in Ramsey County to release results of toxicology tests on 19-year-old Mitchell Grierson. Mitchell was a freshman studying communications at WSU. His roommate found him dead in their dorm room on February 17th. Bostrack believes the tests could take up to two months to process.

Minnesota Budget Fight Continues

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Five Democratic legislators are the targets of a new radio ad campaign by a Republican outside group seeking to pressure them on tax elements of Gov. Mark Dayton's budget.

The Minnesota Jobs Coalition headed by GOP operatives plans to run the ads in politically mixed districts, where voters elected a Democratic House member but preferred Republican nominee Mitt Romney over Democrat Barack Obama in the presidential race.

Ben Golnik says his group is spending only a few thousand dollars but the ads will run at least six times a day for a week in the targeted markets. The spots focus on Dayton's plan to expand the sales tax to more things and urge voters to sound off.

The ads mention Democratic Reps. Andrew Falk of Murdock, Paul Marquart of Dilworth, Joe Radinovich of Crosby, Mary Sawatzky of Willmar and John Ward of Baxter.

Wisconsin Pounded with Snow Again

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) Sheriff's officials in at least one county were advising motorists to stay home as a winter storm made travel dangerous and closed schools in eastern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday.

The storm that paralyzed parts of the nation's midsection is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in counties near Lake Michigan and up to 6 inches in counties away from the lake.

Sheboygan County received 14 inches and sheriff's deputies issued a no travel advisory. Lt. Mark Rupnik says they have at least 10 calls for stuck vehicles they haven't been able to get to. He says people have been abandoning their vehicles.

The heavy snow also caused power outages in the Milwaukee area.

Here Come The Moths

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin will take its fight against the gypsy moth to much of the western portion of the state later this year, with aerial insecticide spraying in about one-third of the state's counties.

The spray may start in late spring or early summer depending on the weather, and will last about a month. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection plans to start from the south and work northward.

The gypsy moth's appetite for trees and shrubs makes it harmful to the state's timber and paper industries.

Residents can learn about the spraying program at open house meetings from March 12-14 in Madison, Black River Falls and Superior.

A bullying incident in Sparta led to a packed school board meeting last night....and police involvement. Dan Deicher has more.

 

It started because a 13 year old boy was teased because he had pizza sauce on his shirt while riding home from school on a bus. Teasing went from name calling and that turned to slapping, punching and eventually the boy being put in a choke hold. One student is alleged to have placed his hands in his pants...and wiped it on the boy's face. The boy's Mother, Misty Morales told police what happened...they started an investigation but are tight lipped on the contents of it.

 

Sparta Administrator, John Hendricks told me one student has been dealt with so far......he could not comment on what the punishment was or how many more students were involved in the bullying.

 

Hendricks says the district has not taken bullying lightly over the past couple of years and he's interested in what discussion will take place now that the school board has set a meeting on the topic March 12th.
