Quack! Wisconsin bill would legalize duck races

Thursday, 26 September 2013 15:35 Published in National News

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin lawmaker is introducing a bill, no pun intended, that would legalize duck races.

Well, not real ducks but the plastic ones with numbers on the bottom. Nonprofit organizations commonly race the little plastic ducks as fundraisers. Participants usually buy a raffle ticket corresponding with a duck's number.

The first to float across the finish line wins.

State Rep. Andre Jacque circulated a proposal Thursday to legalize the races. He says the village of Mishicot was warned by the Wisconsin Department of Justice that its annual rubber duck race amounts to illegal gambling.

Jacque's bill creates an exemption for duck races, similar to laws in Minnesota and Michigan.

Rubber duck races in Wisconsin include the "Ducktona 500" in Sheboygan Falls and the "Lucky Ducky Derby" in Menomonee Falls.

NY school team calls it quits after football death

Thursday, 26 September 2013 15:32 Published in National News

BROCTON, N.Y. (AP) - The teammates of a high school football player in upstate New York who died after being injured in a game have voted to end their season early.

Damon Janes was injured during the third quarter of Westfield-Brocton's Sept. 13 against Portville. He was able to get on his feet but lost consciousness on the sidelines. He died three days later and an exact cause of death has not been released.

Concern about hard hits among has brought renewed attention to concussion management and a national initiative to teach the "Heads Up" tackling technique. A recent study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found an average of 12 high school and college players die annually.

Damon's was at least the fifth high school football death this season. But his was the only team to cancel the season because of it.

Teammate Joey Villafrank says, "Now I realize that there's more than just playing the game."

Charges are filed against a teen connected to Wednesday's shooting of a Vashon High School senior.

17-year-old Lamarco Love is accused in the shooting. Police say that a group of teenagers were walking to school, when they were approached by Love and two others. An argument followed and when the first group of kids started to walk away, Love allegedly shot at them. A 17-year-old was hit in the back, and he is now in stable condition.

Police do not believe incident was gang related, but the result of a feud between the two groups.
