BARRON - For nearly three months, prosecutors say, 13-year-old Jayme Closs was held in a remote woodland cabin and often forced to hide in a 2½-foot space beneath her kidnapper's bed, going without food, water or a bathroom for hours, too terrified to flee from a man she knew had fatally shot both of her parents. But when Jake Thomas Patterson left the remote cabin on the 88th day of her captivity, she finally made a break for freedom, authorities said. She put on Patterson's sneakers so hastily that they ended up on the wrong feet.

Evers predicts he will prevail on Medicaid expansion Hartford panel rejects U-Haul development of former Kmart site

Tony Evers told Republicans in a closed-door Capitol meeting Tuesday that he will push for accepting a federal Medicaid expansion, even though GOP leaders said the issue was a "nonstarter" for them.

Lawsuit seeks to protect 
Wisconsin wedding barns
ROCK SPRINGS, Wis. - 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.
MADISON - Two Wisconsin wedding barns owners planned to file a lawsuit Tuesday against Gov. Tony Evers' administration, seeking to ensure that private parties held at such venues don't need to obtain liquor licenses. The lawsuit being filed Tuesday in Dunn County Circuit Court comes after the future of wedding barns was thrown into question by former Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel.

Duke stays at No. 1 in AP Top 25; Kentucky, Marquette rise
RALEIGH, N.C. - Duke remained firmly entrenched at No. 1 for a fourth straight week in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll, which was enough to give its Hall of Fame coach another record. The Blue Devils led an unchanged top 10 in Monday's AP Top 25 and spent their sixth week on top this season. That gave coach Mike Krzyzewski his 122nd week at No. 1 in the AP poll, breaking a tie with the late UCLA coach John Wooden for the most in poll history.
