News Minute: Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay is the latest city in Wisconsin to consider banning cellphones for drivers. Alderman Jerry Wiezbiskie says he's almost been hit several times by someone talking on their cellphone while driving. Wiezbiskie is proposing an ordinance banning handheld use of electronic devices while driving. Violators would face a $50 fine.
LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - The number of landlords suing the City of La Crosse over a new ordinance has grown significantly. Initially, two landlords filed a lawsuit over the new requirement that they register their property annually and pay a fee. More than 30 landlords have since joined the lawsuit. Their attorney says that under state law, the city cannot require any more information than it does from residential property owners.
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police say a man shot and killed another man while robbing him of jewelry outside a strip club. Twenty-five-year-old Keithany Brodie faces multiple charges in the July 20th death of 33-year-old Vincent Fayne. An autopsy found Fayne was shot five times in the back and once in the side.
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Early voting is underway at city clerks' offices across Wisconsin. Voters who can't make it to the polls for the primary election next month are able to cast ballots. City clerks don't anticipate long wait times to cast a ballot for the primary.
