Sounds like a leaking diaphragm in the power booster. When the brake lights stay on, pull the brake pedal up with your foot. When the switch stays on, the cruise control won't work either. It's supposed to kick out when you press the pedal, and that's what it thinks you're doing.
Sorry to hear you're in Wisconsin. Like me, everyone I know is trying to get out of here and away from the miserable property taxes!
