    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Bill Sheridan has resigned as Wisconsin’s inside linebackers coach while the NCAA investigates him for potential rules violations during his tenure as Air Force’s defensive line coach. Wisconsin hired Sheridan on Feb. 22 after he had spent two years at Air Force. Action Network first reported that Air Force had completed an internal investigation into recruiting violations and was awaiting an NCAA ruling on penalties for rules violations committed by Sheridan and three other former assistants. The report said the assistants provided impermissible benefits and hosted prospects during the pandemic-imposed dead period in 2020. “While I look forward to presenting my case at a hearing, I am concerned that the NCAA investigation regarding activities that occurred prior to me joining the Wisconsin football staff could be a distraction which could cause harm to the program,” Sheridan said Friday in a statement released by the university. “As a result, I am submitting my resignation effective immediately.” Sheridan had arrived at Wisconsin as part of Paul Chryst’s offseason staff changes. He filled a vacancy created...
    DUNN COUNTY, Wis. (WCCO) — Despite a rescue attempt, one person has died in a western Wisconsin house fire. According to the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, the fire was reported just before 2 a.m. Wednesday at a residence on 370th Street in the Township of Dunn. When emergency responders arrived, the single-story house was a “fully involved structure fire” and it was quickly learned that there was a person trapped inside, officials said. Another person was able to get out of the residence before the fire department’s arrival. Menomonie Fire Department crews were able to locate the victim inside, take them out of the fire, and perform life-saving measures. However, the victim died at the scene. The cause and origin of the fire is under investigation.
    Wisconsin’s Eau Claire Area School District (ECASD) has implemented radical gender ideology training and policy that puts the onus on students to find alternatives if they are uncomfortable with students of the opposite sex using their restrooms. After explaining that students are allowed to choose whichever restroom and locker room they wish, “based on the gender identity expressed by the student,” the ECASD Administrative Guidance for Gender Identity Support says that if a student is uncomfortable sharing these facilities with students of the opposite sex, it is their responsibility to seek an alternative. “Any student who is uncomfortable using a shared restroom or locker room regardless of the reason, shall upon request, be provided with an alternative,” it says. “However, staff should not require a transgender or gender nonconforming student /employee to use a separate, nonintegrated space unless requested by the individual student.” Like many school districts across the country with policy oriented toward gender ideology, ECASD actively hides critical mental health information from a student’s parents, requiring consent from the student to inform the parents about health developments. “Some...

    A Ring camera doorbell video camera appears to have captured the moment when Darrell Brooks, the suspected driver responsible for the Waukesha parade crash, was taken into custody by the police. Brooks faces 5 counts of first-degree intentional homicide after the Waukesha Police Department identified him as the driver of the red SUV who killed 5 people and injured dozens more at a Christmas parade. NBC News obtained footage of Brooks after his alleged drive through the parade crowd, and it shows him at the front door of someone’s house, telling the resident he was waiting for an Uber ride. “I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting for it over here, but I don’t know when it’s coming,” Brooks says. “Can you call it for me please? I’m homeless.” Rider told NBC that he just got back from a hunting trip and was watching a football game at the time of the crash, so he didn’t know about the incident just a few blocks away. Rider said he allowed Brooks inside and let him use the...
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — When you grow up in a family of 16 siblings, you do what it takes to stand out from the crowd. That helps explain the approach that has enabled Wisconsin linebacker Leo Chenal to develop into one of college football’s most prolific tacklers. Chenal is coming off a career-best performance against Army and leads the Badgers with 42 total tackles despite missing Wisconsin’s first two games due to a positive COVID-19 test. LSU’s Damone Clark is the only player from a Power Five conference averaging more tackles per game. Chenal has seven half-siblings and eight full siblings ranging in age from 12 to 39. He displays the same personality on the field that often he often showcased while growing up with eight sisters and seven brothers. Although he isn’t the oldest in his family, he may be the boldest. “When I was a little kid, I was always trying to pick fights with them and stuff,” said Chenal, 12th-oldest in the family. “That’s where I think I got all my energy and all my passion,...
    An Arizona man who allegedly told his father he "snapped and shot a couple of people" was charged Tuesday with murder, about a week after four bodies were found in an abandoned SUV in western Wisconsin, according to a criminal complaint. Antoine Suggs, 38, of Scottsdale, Arizona, faces four counts of second-degree intentional murder, without premeditation. Suggs turned himself in to Gilbert, Arizona, police last week after investigators announced he was wanted for questioning. Prosecutors said he remains jailed in Arizona, awaiting extradition to Minnesota. Suggs' father, 56-year-old Darren McWright, who also goes by the last name Osborne, has been charged in Wisconsin with four counts of hiding a corpse. The Minnesota complaint against Suggs does not name McWright as Suggs' father, but comparing the details with the charges out of Wisconsin shows the two men are father and son. The Ramsey County Attorney's Office says it is reviewing the case against McWright. The Gilbert Police Department said Suggs was taken to the Maricopa County jail on Friday. It was not immediately clear if he was still there on...
    A man has been arrested and another suspect is wanted in the killing of four people in western Wisconsin, authorities said Thursday. They are accused of killing two men and two women, who authorities found inside an abandoned SUV in a cornfield. The four victims, all from Minnesota, were identified as Matthew Isiah Pettus, 26; Loyace Foremann III, 35; and Jasmine Christine Sturm, 30, all from St. Paul; as well as Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, 30, of Stillwater. The suspect in custody was identified as Darren Lee McWright (Osborne), 56, of St. Paul. The suspect wanted by police is Antoine Darnique Suggs, 38, of St. Paul, according to the Dunn County Sheriff's Office. They believe he could be in the Twin Cities area. Police didn't immediately release a motive as the investigation continues, according to CBS affiliate WSAW-TV. The victims were found late Saturday after they were last seen at a bar getting into someone's vehicle. A preliminary autopsy report from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office said the four people died of gunshot wounds. Four people found slain in...
    A manhunt for suspects was underway in Wisconsin this week after four adults from neighboring Minnesota were found dead inside an SUV in a cornfield over the weekend, according to reports.  None of the shooting victims – two men, two women – appeared to have any direct connection to Dunn County, Wisconsin, where the bodies were found, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported. The deaths are being investigated as homicides, according to FOX 9 of Minneapolis.  Those killed were all from the St. Paul area. They were identified as Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, 30; Matthew Isiah Pettus, 26; Loyace Foreman III, 35; and Jasmine Christine Sturm, 30. Pettus was Sturm's half-brother and Foreman was Sturm's boyfriend, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported. Flug-Presley was Sturm's lifelong friend, the report added. All four had been at a St. Paul bar on Saturday night and then left in a vehicle with someone, the Pioneer Press reported. How they wound up so far east of St. Paul remained unclear, authorities told the newspaper. They were fatally shot less than 24 hours before their bodies were found, investigators said,...
    (CNN)Quick, what's the first thing you think of when someone says "Wisconsin?"Chances are a big chunk of you said "Cheeseheads," the fans of the Green Bay Packers who wear their beloved dairy product on their heads.Right? Right!Which is why I was floored when I learned this week that Wisconsin -- center of the Midwest's dairy churn (ahem) -- currently lacks an official state cheese. (Sidebar: This Wisconsin cheese website is mouthwateringly good.)Luckily for Wisconsinites, their politicians are ON IT. A bipartisan bill to make Colby the official cheese of Wisconsin had its first hearing in front of the state's Assembly Committee on Local Government on Wednesday.Read MoreQuestions? Well set your mind at cheese. I emailed Jessie Opoien, a political reporter at the Capital Times in Madison for some answers about all of this. Our conversation, conducted via email and lightly edited for flow, is below.

    A Wisconsin Walmart employee tackled and restrained a deer that had gotten loose inside the store a week ago, according to reports.  Video shared on social media of the incident shows the Baraboo, Wisconsin, worker straddle the wild animal as it struggles to get away.  A witness told KWOW-TV in Madison the deer got into the store through the back of the building.  The animal was eventually released unharmed, FOX 11 reported.

    Iowa can count on all-time leading scorer Luka Garza as an offensive cornerstone, but it helps to have another player who can deliver in crunch time. Joe Wieskamp was that guy on Friday night. He made two key inside baskets late and had a last-minute blocked shot that secured the fifth-ranked Hawkeyes' 62-57 in over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Garza did his part, scoring 24 points. But Wieskamp impressed teammates and coaches with his grit, especially considering he injured his right ankle in the regular-season finale five days ago. "Phenomenal. He stepped up in big-time moments today," said guard Jordan Bohannon, who had 11 points. "I was really impressed with him," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "I didn't see anything at all in his performance that looked like he was a step slow or favoring anything. He was out there competing and having fun." Iowa (21-7) advanced to face No. 3 Illinois (21-6) in Saturday’s semifinals. "This is what every college athlete dreams of, playing in March, playing in...

    President Donald Trump renewed his feud with Fox News' polls after they showed him trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in a few key battleground states. The latest round of polling from Fox showed President Trump leading in Ohio but trailing Biden closely in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin while losing big in Michigan.  All states are crucial toward the 270 electoral votes a candidate needs to win the White House. Biden leads by 12 points in Michigan (52-40 per cent), 5 points in Pennsylvania (50-45 per cent), and 5 points in Wisconsin (49-44 per cent). Trump is up in Ohio by 3 points (48-45 per cent), according to the latest Fox News polls.  The president took to Twitter to express his fury at the numbers, blasting them as 'fake' and claiming he leads in all those states. '[email protected] Polls are totally FAKE, just like they were in 2016. I am leading in all of the states mentioned, which you will soon see. I thought Fox was getting rid of its pollster. Sadly, it never happened!,' he wrote. And Trump doesn't lead in all...
    Hopes were high among the employees who joined Foxconn’s Wisconsin project in the summer of 2018. In June, President Donald Trump had broken ground on an LCD factory he called “the eighth wonder of the world.” The scale of the promise was indeed enormous: a $10 billion investment from the Taiwanese electronics giant, a 20 million-square-foot manufacturing complex, and, most importantly, 13,000 jobs. Which is why new recruits arriving at the 1960s office building Foxconn had purchased in downtown Milwaukee were surprised to discover they had to provide their own office supplies. “One of the largest companies in the world, and you have to bring your own pencil,” an employee recalls wondering. Maybe Foxconn was just moving too fast to be bothered with such details, they thought, as they brought their laptops from home and scavenged pencils left behind by the building’s previous tenants. They listened to the cries of co-workers trapped in the elevators that often broke, and noted the water that occasionally leaked from the ceiling, and wondered when the building would be transformed into the gleaming...
