Hudson police say a golf
course worker may have been lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood for
several hours before he was found Friday afternoon.  Thirty-five year old Chad
Wang was hurt when the sealed 55-gallon drum he was working on exploded at the
Hudson Golf Course.  Wang was using an acetylene torch at the time.  The
explosion caused the lid on that drum to shoot up and hit him in the head,
causing severe injuries.  A UPS driver found the worker from Spring Valley,
Minnesota, semi-conscious.


Beloit police announce
they have arrested a mother and her son in connection with several felonies
committed in Minnesota and North Dakota.  Search warrants were served at two
locations early yesterday morning.  Police say they detained eight people and
arrested two of them.  Twenty-five year old Samuel Bullock is wanted for murder
and robbery in Moorhead, Minnesota.  The man's 53 year old mother, Denise
Harlan, was arrested on felony theft warrants from Fargo, North Dakota.  The two
were arrested after a one-hour standoff with the son.  He gave up when tear gas
was launched into the house where he was hiding.


The Federal Aviation
Administration reports it is considering possible action against a pilot who
crash-landed his plane on Interstate 94 in Racine County last October.  Experts
say he was flying in weather which left other pilots questioning his decision.
Pilot Keith George overshot the runway at Sylvania Airport in Yorkville and
ended up on the interstate.  His passenger was injured.  George told a federal
investigator the weather was substantially clear as he flew from Jackson,
Michigan.  Other pilots said they couldn't believe he was flying in the weather
conditions which existed in the region that day.


Construction is expected
to start later this year on affordable housing development for low-income
residents in three western Wisconsin communities.  A little over 1-point-1
million dollars in federal aid will be distributed through grants from the HOME
Rental Housing Development program.  The money will be used to help build
affordable apartments and town homes for households at or below 60 percent of
the nation's median income.  The money is headed for developments in Cashton,
Menomonie and Solon Springs.


The Waupaca County
Sheriff's Department says several shots fired from a moving car hit the rear of
the Wally World Tavern and an apartment early yesterday morning.  One person was
seriously wounded.  The victim was awake at the time and was hit by a single
bullet from the drive-by shooting.  The incident in Farmington reportedly
happened shortly after 3:30 a.m.  Detectives say they are looking for two people
who were in a light-colored 2002-to-2005 Chevrolet Impala.  Photos from a
surveillance camera captured images of the car and suspects.


The upcoming trial for
accused child-killer Aaron Schaffhausen is expected to center more on his mental
state than his guilty.  Schaffhausen is charged with three counts of
first-degree intentional homicide and one of attempted arson.  He is accused of
killing his three daughters, aged five through 11, at the River Falls home of
his ex-wife.  A motions hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday with the trial
to start a week from tomorrow.  Neither prosecution nor the defense has ever
suggested any other suspects in the killings.  If Schaffhausen is found guilty
and insane, he would be committed to a mental health institution.  His attorney
says it would be unlikely his client would ever be released.


Oneida County officials
say a 31 year old man was killed in a snowmobile accident Saturday morning.  The
unidentified victim reported lost control and slammed his machine into a tree in
the Town of Three Lakes.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene, but his name
has not been released.


Volunteers resumed the
search yesterday morning for the Wisconsin native who was last seen four weeks
ago.  Thirty year old Kira Trevino is presumed dead.  The searchers scoured the
area around Keller Lake in eastern Minnesota.  That lake is less than two miles
from the rented house Trevino shared with her husband.  He has been charged with
her murder.  More than 100 volunteers were involved in the search which
continues today.
