Minnesota To Limit Fair Smoking

Written by

(AP) The Minnesota State Fair plans to limit open air smoking on its 320-acre property beginning this year.

Smoking has already been prohibited in fair buildings and in entertainment seating areas, such as the grandstand. Smokers could light up in any other outdoor spaces until now.

Fair spokeswoman Brienna Schuette there will be outdoor designated smoking areas. But, Schuette says how many areas and where they will be located are details that still need to be finalized before the fair begins Aug. 22.

Schuette tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/V7ix90 ) that managers have been studying how other fairs handle smoking. The new policy follows an incident last year in which a 2-year-old girl from Graceville was accidentally poked in the eye and injured by a burning cigarette.

How Will Wisconsin's Agriculture Cliimate Be

Written by

(AP) Agriculture experts say the biggest wildcard in predicting Wisconsin's crop production this year is moisture.

Last year's drought was severe enough that most fruit and vegetable crops were hit hard. The crops that fared well were largely those that could tap into water reserves deep in the soil.

This year those water reserves are partially depleted, and it would take about 12 inches of rain statewide to replenish them. Less rain could also be adequate, but even so crop experts say they're straining to find reasons for optimism.

Rainfall was below average in November, and December through February are traditionally Wisconsin's three least rainy months.

Experts at an agricultural forum in Madison said Wednesday the crops at greatest risk from another prolonged drought are corn and soybeans.

Walker Picks Budget Date

Written by

 

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker plans to deliver his budget address to the state Legislature on Feb. 20.

Walker notified the state Senate on Wednesday that he intends to deliver his budget on that date.

Walker has been talking about some parts of his two-year spending plan for weeks, but has not revealed many details. On Tuesday he said he hopes to include an income tax cut of around $340 million over two years.

Once Walker delivers his budget to the Legislature, Republicans in control will convene public hearings, discuss the plan and make changes before bringing it to a vote most likely in June.

The prize was in front of the La Crosse public library, but it took a week before anybody found it...

Now, the La Crosse Winter Rec-Fest Medallion has been discovered by Paul Hoch of West Salem, and he claims the 500-dollar cash reward for this year. Hoch did plenty of research on the clues, before seeing the medallion in brush along Main Street on Tuesday.  A clue about a 'Wisconsin profession' referred to Farmers, and several lines in the clues were quotes from famous books. The final unpublished clue mentions the library and a Main Street bush.  Hoch also found the Oktoberfest medallion in 2011, and says the clues in the Rec Fest hunt were harder.
