Fire caused extensive damage Sunday evening to a garage at a home in the 2100 block of Craig Lane West in Onalaska. , A crew of 19 from the Onalaska Fire Department managed to control the blaze within 45 minutes of arriving at . 6:22 p.m., but not before the wood trusses above the garage had collapsed. One firefighter was treated for a minor injury, according to the fire department. A liquid propane grill near the home is thought to have sparked the fire, which then spread through the vented aluminum soffit and into the attic above the garage, according to the fire department. DENTIST From A-1 mathematics and liberally sprinkled with prepositional phrases. U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb turned down Kriemelmeyers challenge to indictment against him that it was written in standard English, which he called a "fictional" or a "fraudulently conveyed language. Kriemelmeyer used intelligible English at his pretrial hearings but recendy switched to Millers dialect and used it Monday dufing his opening statement, which Crabb limited to 30 minutes. His statement included saying, "Im with the confusion, your honor, which in standard English might have been, "Im confused, your honor. Crabb also overruled Kriemelmeyers objection to the use of a gold-fringed U.S. flag in the courtroom. Altman told jurors she will prove Kriemelmeyer knew he was underreporting his income because Internal Revenue Service agents searching his office in December found IRS and Wisconsin Department of Revenue letters stating he was filing tax returns incorrectly and frivolously."

In some cases, the result can be criminal charges against the contractor. In many cases, contractors get into trouble when they use fluids from one job to cover the costs of another, Brown said. I had one case where a contractor was building spec houses, but the housing market went bad on them, Brown said. Now theyre stuck with these houses and have to pay interest on them, but there isnt enough money to get everyone paid. Even those who do good KARL ROVE From A-1 in recent months, forcing the White House to rebuild its staff at the same time the president is running out of influence. Ill be on the road behind you here in a little bit, said a rueful Bush, announcing the departure alongside Rove on the White House South Lawn. Bush leaves office Jan. 20, 2009. Bush nicknamed Rove the architect and "boy genius for successfully plotting two national election strategies and helping strengthen Republican majorities in Congress in 2002 and 2004. Critics derisively called him Bushs brain. During Bushs presidency, he has been one of Washingtons most powerful and controversial figures. The president appeared glum as he joined Rove for the announcement Karl Rove is moving on down the road, Bush said. "Weve been friends for a long time, and were still going to be friends. I would call Karl Rove a dear friend. Rove, his voice shaking with emotion, told Bush, Im grateful to have been a witness to history. It has been the joy and the honor of a lifetime." He said it had been more than 14 years since he helped Bush run for governor of Texas and 10 years since they began plotting the first race for the White House. Rove said it was time to "start thinking about the next chapter in our familys life."

Taxes, insurance, money management and proper communication with clients all can lead to problems, said David Krekeler, a business bankruptcy attorney who sits on an advisory panel for consumer protection and represents Bittner. Unpaid taxes can be particularly challenging for small-business owners, said Krekeler. Finding the right contractor can be difficult but is well worth the effort, Brown said. Asking for references, looking at similar work done by the company and even checking online court records can help TO LEAVE WHITE HOUSE Bush and then Laura Bush, Rove joined them on the presidents helicopter. Rove, his wife and their son flew with Bush on Air Force One to Texas, where the president began his August vacation. Rove has been no stranger to controversy in Washington. He came under scrutiny in a criminal investigation into the leak of a CIA operatives name. He testified five times before a federal grand jury, occasionally correcting misstatements he made in his earlier testimony, but he was never charged with any crime. The trial of former White House aide I. Lewis Scooter Libby on charges of lying and obstructing justice established that Rove was one of the administration officials who leaked the name of the CIA officer, Valerie Plame. In a more recent controversy, Rove refused to testify before Congress about the firing of U.S. attorneys, citing executive privilege. Rove said his resignation would not stop lawmakers from investigating him. Im Moby Dick, and weve got three or four members of Congress who are trying to cast themselves in the part of Captain Ahab," Rove said. So theyre going to keep coming. Brainy and combative. Rove was the most polarizing aide in the White House. He urged an uncompromising, take-noprisoners stand in political battles.

Once a contractor is selected, everything should be in writing, said Dave Tatar, a former police officer who oversees consumer protection investigators in Madison.

Barack Obama said. In a telephone interview from the plane, Rove said his departure should not be taken as a sign of decline in Bushs presidency. Look, hes a very competitive guy, Rove said of Bush. None of us is indispensable or unreplaceable except (Bush) and Dick Cheney, and they aint going anywhere. And he will use every lever at his com- : mand and use every power 5 that hes got as president which is considerable. I think it will be wishful thinking on the part of the presidents critics to think this means anything other than a staff change at the White House, Rove said. White House officials readily acknowledged that Roves departure was a blow. Known as a ruthless political warrior, Rove possessed a love of history, an encyclopedic command of political minutiae and a wonkish love of policy. "Karl is going to be missed, saidWhite House counselor Ed Gillespie, who got his job in June when another longtime Bush loyalist, Dan Bartlett, resigned. Obviously those of us who are staying in place need to pick up our game and step up. Its going to be hard. Karl is a major, major factor: But we can do it ,1 6 ''J f f
