MILWAUKEE (AP) - A fresh round of heavy snow overnight has closed dozens of schools in southeastern Wisconsin and delayed classes in other regions of the state. Elkhorn, East Troy, Kenosha, Waterford and Williams Bay are among schools giving students the day off Tuesday. The National Weather Service says 2 to 8 inches of snow has fallen in southeastern Wisconsin, slowing the morning commute.

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Stutsman County authorities say they seized 476 pounds of marijuana during a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 94 in southeastern North Dakota. Sheriff Chad Kaiser says men from Minnesota and Wisconsin were stopped for a traffic violation Sunday and arrested after a search of their vehicle. The men appeared in court Monday on felony and misdemeanor drug possession charges and applied for public defenders.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republicans still smarting from a secret investigation into conservative groups and Gov. Scott Walker have scheduled a dramatic vote to oust leaders of the bipartisan state agencies charged with running elections and overseeing ethics laws. The Senate is scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to confirm Michael Haas as Elections Commission administrator and Brian Bell as leader of the Ethics Commission.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A jury has found that former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke did not violate a man's free speech with taunting Facebook posts after detaining him at an airport last year. Jurors deliberated nearly three hours before deciding Monday night that Clarke's posts were not enough to chill Daniel Black's future speech. Black says he shook his head at Clarke on a flight from Dallas to Milwaukee because Clarke was wearing Cowboys gear. Black was detained after getting off the plane.
