MADISON — Two years after Mark Friend lost part of his left leg when a car pinned him to his garbage truck, the former trash collector is frustrated to hear of such accidents still regularly occurring. Friend served as the inspiration for a 2013 Wisconsin law that doubled the fines for drivers caught speeding around stopped garbage trucks, but he doesn't think it's being enforced or that sufficient efforts have been made to inform the public of the dangers.

Waivers may give next president 
way out of health care feuds
Home prices rise 8.8% in March, new listings increase 15.1%

WASHINGTON — Republican or Democrat, the next president will have the chance to remake the nation's health care overhaul without fighting Congress. The law signed by President Barack Obama includes a waiver that, starting in 2017, would let states take federal dollars now invested in the overhaul and use them to redesign their own health care systems.

Report finds missteps in 
1990 slaying investigation
March, rally planned to mark
 death of man killed by police

FOND DU LAC — Investigators' missteps led to delays in charging anyone in the 1990 disappearance and killing of an 18-year-old Wisconsin woman, according to a report published Sunday. Citing court records and search warrants, a review by the Gannett Wisconsin Media Investigative Team found the investigation into the killing of Berit Beck of Sturtevant was "plagued by long lapses, missteps and flawed theories."

 

MILWAUKEE  — A march and rally will be held to mark the one-year anniversary of the killing of a man by a police officer in a downtown Milwaukee park. Officer Christopher Manney shot Dontre Hamilton on April 30, 2014 after responding to a call of a man sleeping. According to Manney's account, Hamilton grabbed the officer's baton and attacked him with it, forcing him to open fire. He shot Hamilton 14 times.
