(AP) Candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court and state superintendent of schools are required to file their latest campaign spending reports showing activity through Feb. 4. The reports due Monday are the last showing how much candidates have raised and spent before the Feb. 19 primary election.
Three candidates are running for Supreme Court and one of them will be eliminated in the primary. Those running are incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack, Milwaukee attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone.
Roggensack launched the first ad of the campaign last week, touting her experience with nearly 17 years as a judge.
In the race for Department of Public Instruction secretary, incumbent Tony Evers faces challenger Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore. There is no primary in that race.
(AP) Western Minnesota is hit hardest by a storm that dumped a foot of snow in the region and stranded motorists. Several highways in the area are closed, including Interstate 94 from Alexandria to Moorhead, and Highways 10 210.

The National Weather Service says Glenwood in Pope County got 12 inches of snow Sunday. Walker has about 11 inches and Hillman has 10 inches. The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported early Monday that most roadways in the state present difficult driving conditions.
The State Patrol handled 326 crashes since Sunday morning, including 42 that involved injuries.

Looks like the village of Holmen is not going to make changes in its fluoridation system, when it resumes the water treatment later this year.
The main reason? Switching from liquid fluoride to a powder would cost too much, says village public works director Dean Olson. One village board member had suggested using a powder fluoride treatment, because it might be safer than the chemical that had been used in Holmen. Fluoridation was shut off in Holmen two years ago, just days after it started, because opponents were concerned that too much fluoride was being put into the drinking water.
Eight months after a well-publicized murder trial in La Crosse, a CBS News program is ready to report on the case.
This week's '48 Hours' episode examines Eric Koula's trial for the 2010 killings of his parents. Reporter Peter Van Sant of CBS interviewed Koula and others for the program, and says Koula's defense was hurt by things like the 'Fixed U' note he wrote to himself and the 9-1-1 call he made to report his parents were dead. Van Sant recommends that viewers watch Eric Koula's eyes and body language during the interview. The '48 Hours' program will air Saturday night on WKBT.
