COLD WARM STATIONARY NOTE: Terrtperaijres and precipitation from previous day Minnesota The Associated Press Supreme Court justice resigns State economy ranks ninth at, ur Pharmacy in IVinona Is ST. PAUL Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Edward C.

Stringer said Tuesday he'll resign Aug. 31 to pursue other interests. Stringer, 67, said he simply wanted to leave the court "at a time when I have all my faculties and have some time to do things I always wanted to do. "I want to stay in the legal world," he said, adding that he might get into alternative dispute resolution, arbitration or mediation legal avenues that help ease judges' workloads. Stringer has been an associate justice on the high court for eight years.

His six-year term ends in December and he would reach the mandatory retirement age two years after that when he turned 70. In Minnesota, justices are appointed by the governor if someone resigns in the middle of a term, then must run for election and re-election. If a judge resigns at the end of his or her term, candidates run for election to fill the open seat. ST. PAUL Minnesota's economic climate is ranked ninth among the 50 states in long-term competitiveness, according to a new survey.

The 2001 State Competitiveness Index, developed by researchers at the Beacon Hill Institute, an economic policy institute at Suffolk University in Boston, ranked states on a scale of zero to 10, with zero being "utterly uncompetitive" and 10 being "extremely competitive." Man gets new sexual abuse trial ST. PAUL Criminal defendants who face the possibility of prison time must personally waive their right to a jury trial if they want the case decided by a judge, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. Ruben Perez Tlapa, who was convicted by a Le Sueur County judge in March 2001 of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl, will get a new trial because he never declared in open court or in writing that he agreed not to face a jury.

Podany as president and chief executive officer. The Green Bay-based discount retailer said Podany stepped down for personal reasons. ShopKo operates 366 retail stores in 23 states, primarily in the West and Midwest, under the ShopKo name in mid-size and larger cities and Pamida in smaller, rural communities.

State eyes pharmacist shortage MADISON State officials are surveying pharmacists to try to find out why there is a shortage in their profession. The state departments of Workforce Development and Regulation and Licensing are including information for how pharmacists can access a Web-based survey in license renewal notices being mailed out this month. "Pharmacists are in high demand and we need to figure out why more people are not entering what can be a very lucrative field," DWD Secretary Jennifer Reinert said. A recent study released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services showed the number of unfilled positions for drug store pharmacists climbed from 2,700 in 1998 to nearly 7,000 in 2000, the most recent year for which figures are available.

The Wisconsin survey will attempt to determine how much of an impact it is having in the state, officials said. Bus safety bill signed into law MILWAUKEE Gov. Scott McCallum signed into Tuesday legislation inspired by a 6-year-old boy who was struck and killed after he stumbled in front of a school bus. The new law requires school buses to be equipped with retractable crossing gates within two years. Joey Chojnacki of Oak Creek died Sept.

19, 2000, when he stumbled in front of a bus. Any person who operates a school bus not equipped with the required crossing gate could face a fine of between $10 and $200. School deals with late students FOND DU LAC High school students who are late for class will be held in the corridor for the first period under a new policy to help stop the disruption of classes. "We are telling them we are not going to allow them to disrupt othe.r kids," said Fond du Lac High School Principal Mary Fran Mer-win. "The problem is the consquences available are just not effective so we are going to try this." Teacher Greg Winkler, who is part of an attendance team directed to address the problem, said students had 11,637 instances of tardiness by the end of the third quarter.

When that's broken down, tardy students cause 277 disruptions per day, or 34.6 per class period, Winkler said. Merwin said she hopes the policy, which goes into effect next week, will cut tardiness at least in half. QUtitltyCmb Pharmacy Hours Pharmacy Monday Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m.
