    MADISON, Wis. — A delivery truck ran over a cyclist's head, leaving him only with a concussion and a mangled helmet. Ryan Lipscomb, 26, was shaken up, especially after he saw the condition of his helmet. "I didn't see it coming, but I sure felt it roll over my head," he said. "It feels really strange to have a truck run over your head." Lipscomb, a graduate student in medical physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was riding swiftly down a bike path in Madison Friday afternoon. As he approached an intersection where he said he had a green light,...

    With the below average temperatures we have been having this past week there are a few fish houses starting to show up on the lakes. We must remind ourselves that although the air temperature is low there may be safety hazards because of the snow cover that we had on the ice before the below-average temperatures arrived. Proceeding onto the newly formed ice with caution is a must. Watching for pockets of thin ice hidden under a layer of snow is a good way to prevent a dangerous situation and keep you from being a statistic. As we near the...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Feline lovers holding pictures of cats, clutching stuffed animals and wearing whiskers faced-off against hundreds of hunters at meetings around Wisconsin to voice their opinion on whether to legalize cat hunting. Residents in 72 counties were asked whether free-roaming cats - including any domestic cat that isn't under the owner's direct control or any cat without a collar - should be listed as an unprotected species. If listed as so, the cats could be hunted. The proposal was one of several dozen included in a spring vote on hunting and fishing issues held by the Wisconsin...

    Santa's helper throttles teen An outing to a shopping center ended with a shock for 13-year-old Joakim Osland. A fjoesnisse, a kind of elf that traditionally occupies barns and wears a red cap associated with Christmas and Santa Claus, became frighteningly furious when Joakim tried to pet his hen, newspaper Firda reports. This is a more traditional view of the fjøsnisse, who tends to spread Christmas cheer from a barnyard setting, and the visual connections to Santa are clear.

  • Norway Lifts Ban on Forbidden Films

    OSLO, Norway - Norway's national film board lifted a ban on hundreds of films that were deemed too sexually explicit or violent since 1913, including the 1994 Steven Seagal (news) action movie "On Deadly Ground" and the 1990 gangster epic "Miller's Crossing." The decision came after several of the films, banned between 1913 and 1999, were deemed not so objectionable to the Nordic country of 4.5 million which has deep roots in Lutheran piety. "Many of these films were banned in different times. Historically there was an emphasis on moral criteria in censorship. Today professional criteria have become more important...

    OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Polar bears on Norway's Arctic Svalbard islands are changing color, at least on the signs that caution residents and visitors alike that the animals are both an attraction and a danger. The old signs show black bears on a white background, even though most people know that the bears are in fact white. So when residents of the islands, some 300 miles north of Norway's mainland, pointed out the error to visiting national highway department officials, they took it to heart. The department's magazine, Vegen og Vi, said the officials immediately started on the paperwork needed...
