Governors group skirts 
'radioactive' Common Core
Wisconsin smokers 
to be offered help quitting
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Reviled by staunch conservatives, the common education standards designed to improve schools and student competitiveness are being modified by some Republican governors, who are pushing back against what they call the federal government's intrusion into the classroom. MILWAUKEE - Wisconsin smokers who see doctors at several clinics in the Milwaukee, Madison and Janesville areas for any reason will be automatically offered free help in quitting under an experimental study. The research will focus on determining the most effective approaches for helping patients quit smoking, a news outlet reported. It's being funded by a $12 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. 

 

Herrera, Brewers snap 
7-game skid, rout Cardinals
Germany wins terrifically 
entertaining World Cup

MILWAUKEE - Elian Herrera got five hits while filling in for mourning shortstop Jean Segura, and the Milwaukee Brewers ended a seven-game losing streak by routing the St. Louis Cardinals 11-2 Sunday. The Brewers tied a season high with 19 hits and took a one-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central at the All-Star break.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Germany won the World Cup. Host Brazil won a world of new friends. The now four-time champions, the first European team to win the World Cup on Latin American soil, earned the honor of lifting the most recognized trophy in sports with a tooth-and-nail 1-0 victory in a final as terrifically entertaining as the tournament itself.

 

Ground game could determine governor's race Girl shot in May on Milwaukee playground dies
MADISON - Cooper Smith and Erica Imhoff hit the streets of Madison on a recent afternoon armed with a smart phone and campaign literature touting Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Instead of knocking on every door or on those where it appeared someone was home, though, Imhoff scrolled through her phone and called out the addresses of only certain voters.

 

 

MILWAUKEE - A 10-year-old girl who was shot on a Milwaukee playground in May died early Sunday, authorities said. Relatives gathered later in the day at the house where Sierra lived with her parents, Latanya Anderson and Onjuan Guyton. The playground is within sight of their front porch.

 

 

Downside of low US 
mortgage rates? Less selling
Man accused of starting 
N. California wildfire

http://www.apexchange.com/Content/preview/2014/20140711/13/2186b2140c3e951b590f6a7067009357.jpgWASHINGTON - Would-be home sellers across the country are grappling with a once-in-a-lifetime problem: They have mortgage rates so absurdly low it would hurt them financially to sell. Doing so would mean giving up an irresistible rate in exchange for a new mortgage carrying a rate up to a percentage point higher.

REDDING, Calif. - Authorities believe a wildfire in Northern California was sparked by the exhaust from a truck driven by a man delivering supplies to an illegal marijuana plot. Freddie Alexander Smoke III, 27, of Sacramento was arrested Saturday for investigation of recklessly causing a fire and illegally cultivating marijuana, according to the California Department of Fire and Forestry Protection.
