Weekend winter storm sweeping 
from Midwest to New England



















CHICAGO - A winter storm started sweeping across the Midwest on Friday, leading to slick roads and runways, as it inched its way toward New England, where it was forecast to dump up to 2 feet (0.61 meters) of snow. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings from the Dakotas, across the Great Lakes states and into New England. The weather service at one point warned that conditions in New England over the weekend "could approach blizzard criteria."

Green Bay Diocese works 
to assist abuse victims
Judge: GOP can't block liberal 
group's Twitter comments
GREEN BAY - The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay has set up new programs to assist victims of priest abuse, including a new victim's assistance team. Diocese leaders say they're committed to being more transparent about addressing abuse. On Thursday, the diocese released the names of 46 clergy members with substantiated allegations they sexually abused a minor. WLUK-TV reports Bishop David Ricken apologized to the victims at a news conference and said the diocese is working hard to win back trust.

Another federal judge, James Peterson, on Thursday struck down early-voting restrictions Vos and his fellow Republicans passed in a contentious lame-duck session in December. 
La Crosse boy a globally prominent crochet prodigy at age 11 Flood-prone Rock Springs and La Valle libraries recuperating
LA CROSSE - When the UPS man came knocking with a dolley piled high with packages, Jennifer Larson immediately knew they were for her youngest son. And that the boxes would be filled not with toys, or clothes, but yarn. Skein after skein of yarn. It's not uncommon for 11-year-old Jonah to arrive home from school to balls of yarn and encouraging notes from around the world, sent by the thousands from fans who follow the young crochet prodigy on social media and drape their couches with his one-of-a-kind blankets. ROCK SPRINGS - The book by Madison children's author Kevin Henkes was apropos. Snow still clung to the trees here and plows in the village were cleaning up from a New Year's Eve storm and a light dusting two days later, while some sidewalks still waited to be shoveled. "Winter is Here," illustrated by Laura Dronzek, chronicles the changes that occur when the snow flies and the landscape is altered with a blanket of snow, icicles and frozen ponds, Wisconsin State Journal reported.
