MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota voters rejected a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage yesterday, giving gay rights activists and their allies a major victory. Still, the outcome doesn't change things in Minnesota, where state law still makes gay marriage illegal.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesotans rejected a constitutional amendment that would have required people to show a photo ID before they can cast ballots in future elections. The result was a surprising victory for opponents of the requirement that's already in place in several other states.

Does Onalaska have too much fluoride in its tap water?
The city board of public works has a review of fluoridation on its monthly agenda tonight. City engineer Jarrod Holter says the fluoride level has been reduced occasionally since the process was approved by the community in the late 80's. Holter says the level is now .85 parts per million, while the EPA recommends a lower fluoride level of .7 parts. Holter says Onalaska could drop its fluoride to that level if the Wisconsin DNR suggests it. A DNR report on fluoridation is expected soon.
