GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Final arrangements are being hammered out for next month's trial of a man who's accused of setting a fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Green Bay. Francis Grady will attend the proceedings in civilian clothes and won't be shackled. His trial begins July 9th.

ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) -- A former Antigo High School football coach was sentenced to six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to drug charges. Fifty-five-year-old Scot Peterson, who is a retired special education teacher, will also have to spend four years on supervised release. Several other educators in the Antigo and Merrill school districts have also been charged or are under investigation.

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Sand, mud and gravel from last week's torrential rains are spreading into western Lake Superior. The lake's chocolate brown tint is visible in satellite photos and some boaters say they've seen entire trees floating in the lake. Visibility is just six feet in the water, down from 35 feet last week.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission cleared officers in last July's death of a suspect who was in the back of a squad car. The panel says there was no wrongdoing in the death of 22-year-old Derek Williams. An attorney for his family says relatives plan to sue for $4 million.
