Minnesota Couple Identified

Written by

(AP) Friends of a Minnesota couple who died when an Italian cruise ship capsized in January say they're relieved to hear the bodies of Barbara and Gerald Heil finally have been identified. The White Bear Lake couple were active members of St. Pius the X Catholic Church and were known for their service to others. Jerry Heil would visit Diane Vorland, who is confined to a wheelchair, every Thursday to bring her communion and recite the rosary. And he promised to drive Denny Hardy on errands after Hardy lost his license. Vorland says it's good news that the Heils finally have been identified after so long, and that the news should give closure to the family. Hardy says it's nice knowing that the Heils are now safely in the hands of God.

Fake Candidates Can Run

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin's elections board has voted unanimously to allow six Republicans running as Democrats to appear on the ballot in upcoming recall elections. The state Government Accountability Board voted Tuesday to allow the candidates to run because state law doesn't require people to prove they belong to any political party before they can run for office. Democrats objected saying the candidates falsely represented themselves and therefore filed fraudulent paperwork. The recalls target Republican Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and three incumbent senators. A fourth Senate seat is open. Republicans say the goal was to ensure there is a primary in all the races so the general election will be on the same date. The primary is May 8 and the general election is June 5.

Vikings Proposal Shot Down

Written by

(AP) Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is already looking ahead to next year on a new Vikings stadium after his preferred proposal hit a critical setback in the Legislature. Dayton says it's up to lawmakers to revive the public financing package for the $975 million stadium before they head home for the year. But Dayton was pessimistic Tuesday after a committee defeat of the plan the night before.

 

 

The Democratic governor has made the stadium a priority this year, arguing it would result in construction jobs and keep a professional team without a lease from leaving the state. Dayton says he has ``no doubt'' it will prevail in 2013. Republican House Speaker Kurt Zellers blamed Democrats, who put up only one ``yes'' vote in the 9-6 defeat.
