MEMPHIS — We all want to keep ourselves and our families safe, but carrying a gun isn’t for everyone. More and more women are turning to self-defense classes to learn how to protect themselves. There are also dozens of inexpensive tools that can fit into a purse and be shipped right to your door. But are they practical?

RACINE COUNTY — A group of inmates from a women’s prison in Racine County is celebrating a big milestone in their own lives, and for the entire state. The women graduated from a machinery job program at Gateway Technical College. For six months, five days a week, Denise and Dana have logged countless hours in the classroom. “At first it’s hard because, like me, I’m learning how to read blueprints where I never did that before,” said Denise. They’re not […]

WAUKESHA — A local program is helping schools incorporate art into their curriculums. It’s a partnership that’s leaving a lasting impression on the surrounding community. Kids crowded into a stairwell at Carroll University and waited to see a mural each one had a hand at creating. It was a moment months in the making. The process began earlier this year inside classrooms at four Waukesha schools — Banting Elementary School, Summit View Elementary School, Whittier Elementary School and La Casa de […]

OZAUKEE COUNTY — A man who gave his daughter life, is now accused of playing a role in her death. Prosecutors say 60-year-old Terry Hibbard took his daughter, Taralyn, to buy the heroin that killed her. According to a criminal complaint, the Grafton man told investigators he took his daughter to Milwaukee to buy heroin “once or twice a week.” Last July, they stopped at 60th and Good Hope Road. Hibbard told investigators “Taralyn purchased $60 worth of heroin” from Davion […]

WASHINGTON — Primed for economic combat, President Donald Trump set in motion tariffs on as much as $60 billion in Chinese imports to the U.S. on Thursday and accused the Chinese of high-tech thievery, picking a fight that could push the global heavyweights into a trade war. China threatened retaliation, and Wall Street cringed, recording one of the biggest drops of Trump’s presidency. But he declared the U.S. would emerge “much stronger, much richer.” It was the boldest example to […]

BEIJING — China announced a list of U.S. goods including pork, apples and steel pipe on Friday on which it might raise tariffs in an escalating trade dispute with President Donald Trump. The Commerce Ministry called on Washington to negotiate a settlement to the conflict over higher U.S. import duties on steel and aluminum but set no deadline. Beijing’s move appeared to be a calculated step aimed at increasing domestic American pressure on President Trump by making clear which exporters, […]

PHOENIX — The Milwaukee Brewers say injured left-handers Boone Logan and Wade Miley won’t be ready to pitch opening day. Logan will start the season on the disabled list after an MRI revealed a left triceps strain, Milwaukee said Thursday. The reliever threw only three pitches in the seventh inning of a game Wednesday before leaving with discomfort. Logan was 1-0 with a 4.71 ERA in 38 appearances with Cleveland last season. Miley was also injured Wednesday, exiting his start […]

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Scientists have observed a behavior never before seen in killer whales, and it makes for a grim discovery. Following strange calls from orcas off the northeastern coast of British Columbia’s Vancouver Island in December, researchers observed the first known case of infanticide among the whales. After tracking down the orcas and hearing a ruckus in the water, the scientists spotted a male orca with a newborn calf in its mouth, being chased by the calf’s mother […]

A mummified skeleton discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert 15 years ago doesn’t look like anyone you’ve ever met. In fact, some would say it looks, well, alien. It’s a skeletal conundrum made up of perplexing features. It’s only 6 inches tall — but initial estimates of the age of the bones were consistent with a child aged 6 to 8 years. The long, angular skull, slanted eye sockets and fewer than normal ribs — 10 pairs rather than the normal […]

A social network for gun lovers who might be frustrated by Facebook’s policies allows them to showcase their weapons, discuss and give advice on all aspects of shooting, and even sell their guns. Set up three weeks ago, Gunbook boasts 1,200 members, mainly from the UK but with a growing American presence. Its creator, gun-lover David Scott, is a Scottish 57-year-old shooting instructor who had the idea of starting a social network “for shooters by shooters” after its members were […]

MADISON — The state Assembly has passed two school safety packages. The Assembly approved a plan on a 78-8 vote Thursday, March 22, that would lay out $100 million in grants for school security upgrades and require annual school safety drills.

Scott Walker. “The one-percent of people or .1-percent who have committed a crime or have an issue where they should not be owning a firearm, are denied that […]

MILWAUKEE — 6,300 cartons of eggs. That is how many were donated to a local charity by an egg farm on Thursday, March 22. S&R Egg Farm out of Whitewater delivered the precious cargo to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. It took all of about five minutes to unload about 20,000 eggs. But that was apparently just the start. “We serve food pantries, meal programs, shelters any 501-c3 non-profit,” said Lori Holly, of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. Holly said the eggs […]

MILWAUKEE — The man who brutally murdered his estranged wife and became a fugitive for almost five years was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday, March 22.

He beat her with a 2×4 and then stabbed her to death. Discua-Bados knew the conviction carries a mandatory life in prison […]
