Walker raises $8.2 million; 
Burke $3.6 million
Organizations call for immigration reform by summer’s end
MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker raised more than twice as much money as Democrat Mary Burke over the first six months of the year and he entered July with three times as much cash on hand, based on figures released by both campaigns on Wednesday.

WAUKESHA - A recent poll shows that 87 percent of Wisconsin voters support immigration reform, but part of that message may have been lost in a Wednesday press conference when a former president of La Casa de Esperanza came to the podium and called Republicans “Nazis” before referring to President Barack Obama with a racial slur. Several community leaders gathered at Waukesha City Hall Wednesday morning to urge Congress and the Obama administration to pass immigration reform by the August congressional recess, as part of the National Day of Action for Immigration Reform.

Bucks sign 1st-round 
pick F Jabari Parker
Hernandez cruises, 
Phillies beat Brewers 4-1

MILWAUKEE — The Bucks have signed first-round draft pick Jabari Parker to his rookie contract. General manager John Hammond announced the signing Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Parker is guaranteed a minimum of about $8.5 million in the first two years before Milwaukee has team options on his third and fourth seasons.

MILWAUKEE — Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley homered to support Roberto Hernandez's solid start, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 on Wednesday night for their third straight win over the NL Central leaders. Hernandez (4-8) needed just 84 pitches in eight innings to dispatch the aggressive Brewers, who have lost four straight and eight of nine. Hernandez allowed three hits, and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 22nd save.

Suitcase bodies suspect 
dodged discipline as cop
City, builder off to court
WEST ALLIS — The suspect in the deaths of two women whose bodies were found in suitcases dumped along a rural Wisconsin highway resigned his job as a police officer to avoid discipline amid allegations of stalking, lying and abuse of power, according to personnel records released Wednesday.

WEST BEND - There’s a cold-shoulder war over the north side industrial site at 2100 Northwestern Ave. between the city of West Bend and property owner John Bagley. City officials want to shut down the former 97,665square-foot factory, known as the Bermico building, claiming it’s dilapidated condition is a public safety hazard.

Documents released 
related to Walker probe
2 companies that 
outsourced got state money

MADISON — Newly unsealed documents in the ongoing lawsuit challenging an investigation into possible illegal campaign activity by conservative groups and Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign shed little light on the probe. The documents were released publicly Wednesday by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, over an objection from conservative group Wisconsin Club for Growth which wanted to keep them secret.

 

MADISON — At least two companies that received money from Gov. Scott Walker's chief economic development agency later outsourced jobs to foreign countries, WKOW-TV reported Wednesday. One of the companies received a second award from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation after the fact, the television station reported.
