MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- An engineering company linked to the 2007 interstate bridge collapse in Minneapolis continues to work for the city, and has received more than two dozen contracts in the last five years.

The company is also bidding to design the new Stillwater Bridge over the St. Croix River.

GLENDALE, Wis. (AP) -- An 88-year-old suburban Milwaukee man died last night after he was seriously injured when his Glendale house exploded. Marvin Engler and a female caretaker were hurt when the house exploded and caught fire on Saturday.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is confirming that it paid suspected pedophile priests to leave the ministry. The acknowledgment comes after a document surfaced in the archdiocese's bankruptcy case discussing a 2003 proposal to pay $20,000 to "unassignable priests" who accept a return to the laity.
