The body of 49-year-old Nancee Kretschmer of Wabasha has been recovered from the Mississippi River. The Wabasha County Sheriff's office says it received a call Thursday morning about the possibility of someone walking on the ice near Wabasha's Eagle Center.
Officers followed a lone pair of tracks onto the ice about 100 feet from open water. Winona County Dive Rescue responded and found the woman's body at 3:30 Thursday.
The health commissioner extended the hours for his upcoming public forum on adding intractable pain to the list of conditions allowed into the state's medical marijuana program. The public can also submit written comments.
The final decision will be up to Health Commissioner Ed Ehlinger, but if the program expands, the Intractable Pain Advisory Committee hopes there will be additional strictures and precautions for pain patients.
