Who has the best odds of being the new pope?

One bookmaker that's posting odds has two former Wisconsin bishops among the top one-third of candidates. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, formerly the archbishop of Milwaukee, gets 20-to-1 odds from the 'paddy power-dot-com' web site. Former La Crosse Bishop Raymond Burke is farther down the list, at 66-to-1. The website's favorite candidate at this point is Italian Cardinal Angelo Scola. The site even rates the chances of U-2 singer Bono becoming pope...at one thousand to one.

Local Players, Coach Real Deal In State

Written by

LACROSSE, Wis. (AP) Aquinas High School guard Bronson Koenig, fresh off leading the Blugolds to their second state title in three years, has been voted Wisconsin Associated Press boys basketball player of the year. Koenig's coach, Rick Schneider, was named coach of the year in a vote by statewide media members.



Koenig, a University of Wisconsin recruit, bounced back from a thumb injury that cost him most of his junior year to average nearly 17 points and 4.4 assists per game.

He was joined on the first time by Germantown senior Luke Fischer, Milwaukee Hamilton junior Kevon Looney, Onalaska senior Matt Thomas and Whitefish Bay Dominican senior Duane Wilson.

No Dope In Minnesota

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota won't have a showdown over medical marijuana this year. Advocates are holding off on a planned push to change the state's marijuana laws until the 2014 session.

Heather Azzi of Minnesotans for Compassionate Care, a pro-marijuana policy group, said Wednesday that bills to permit marijuana for medical reasons will be introduced in the next week or two. But Azzi says they won't move through Legislature this year.

Supporters hope to latch onto efforts to relax marijuana laws in other states. But they have been unable to get Minnesota's law enforcement community to budge from its opposition. Gov. Mark Dayton has also said he wasn't interested in decriminalizing marijuana for medical or recreational use.

Minnesota lawmakers approved a medical marijuana bill in 2009, but it ran into a veto.

Raw Milk Is Back Again

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The state Legislature is expected to consider another bill legalizing the sale of unpasteurized milk in Wisconsin, legislation that could have Gov. Scott Walker's support if it contains safeguards for consumers' health.

Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman says he plans to introduce the legislation in the next few weeks. State law currently prohibits the sale of raw milk to the public. Opponents of the law say consumers should be able to decide for themselves if they want it. Raw milk supporters say it contains nutrients that are destroyed during pasteurization.

Grothman introduced a similar bill in 2011that died in committee. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says the governor would sign a bill to allow the limited sale of raw milk if it contained the health protections.

A new statewide study says Wisconsin is number one...in binge drinking.

A group called 'Health First Wisconsin' reports that the Badger State has a higher rate of excessive drinking than any other state. In La Crosse, Brenda Rooney works with the Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking' group. She finds the financial costs of drinking cited in the report to be a bit disturbing.  The group's study calculated that alcohol problems cost three billion dollars a year in lost productivity at work...two billion in premature deaths...and half-a-billion dollars in traffic accidents.
