WISCONSIN RECALL-THE DETAILS
MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin's recall elections are unexplored territory - after all, only two U.S. governors have ever been ousted that way. That means there's plenty to learn ahead of the June 5 elections. Here are 10 questions and answers - a how-to-guide to the details, quirks and oddities of the state's recall process as Democrats upset over Republican Gov. Scott Walker's law stripping public workers of their union rights push to remove the governor and four other Republicans from office. By Todd Richmond.
BACKDOOR CARP INVASION
MINNEAPOLIS - There's a back door for Asian carp to sneak into Minnesota, and fisheries officials are worried that the invaders might have found it already. Commercial fishermen recently caught dozens of Asian carp in northwestern Iowa's Great Lakes, one of that state's most popular vacation spots. Those waters connect with lakes and streams in southwestern Minnesota, so the haul came as an unwelcome surprise to Minnesota officials who've been more focused on the higher-profile fight against Asian carp infiltrating up the Mississippi River.

YOUTH MINISTRY-PLANE CRASH
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Ron Luce didn't recognize the voice of the woman who phoned Friday to say his daughter Hannah was with her, and was fine. Her words didn't make any sense to the Texas minister and founder of a Christian organization that reaches out to troubled youths. How could Hannah be with this woman when she was on a plane, headed to a Christian youth rally in Iowa? Hannah Luce is the only one of five people who survived when a twin-engine Cessna 401 crashed Friday afternoon northwest of Chanute. By Bill Draper.

EXCHANGE-K-9 COP FILM
FOND DU LAC, Wis. - The slobber dripping from the tongue of Fond du Lac Police Department K-9 Grendel made students at Riverside Elementary yell "eww!" And when his handler, Officer Ryan Williams, asked students what language his partner understands, one child's answer of "dog" made the room erupt in laughter. These were moments that a film crew from "Heroes Behind the Badge" hoped for. Director Wayne Derrick and executive producer Bill Erfurth were in Fond du Lac recently to interview Williams about his experience on March 20, 20111, when he was shot twice while investigating a reported sexual assault at a home on South Lincoln Avenue.
