LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is getting a $50,000 grant to help incoming students who need remedial math courses. One in five incoming freshmen needs remedial math, a figure that's almost twice as high for under-represented minority students.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin attorney general says people who bought a TV, monitor or laptop with an LCD flat screen have three weeks left to claim part of a class action lawsuit settlement.
