The snow keeps on coming in far northern Wisconsin. Gile in Iron County had 32-point-eight inches from Monday through 10:30 last night. Much of it blew in from Lake Superior. Forecasters say the area could get another inch before it finally ends tonight. The National Weather Service says nearby Vilas County could get another 1-to-3 inches of snow. It started as the remnants of Typhoon Nuri from Alaska last weekend -- and then it became the type of routine lake-effect snow that folks from Superior to Hurley are well-accustomed to.
More than 50 people have been arrested in a heroin sales ring in Milwaukee which is said to be responsible for about a dozen deaths by overdose. District Attorney John Chisholm said yesterday that the suspects are part of a gang called the East Side Mafioso. Milwaukee's drug task force started investigating the group last year, with the help of federal agents. During the operation, they seized eleven guns, eight vehicles, large amounts of heroin and cocaine, and over 21-thousand dollars.

James Harden overcame a difficult night shooting and an injury scare in the third quarter, finishing with 23 points and 10 assists on 8-of-23 from the floor, and Trevor Ariza added 19.
