MADISON — Republicans opposed to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' plan to expand Medicaid coverage in Wisconsin got some ammunition Tuesday, while Democrats and health care advocates dismissed as unreliable the new report saying expansion would shift $600 million a year to the private insurance market. Democrats including Evers want Wisconsin to join 36 other states in accepting federal money to expand Medicaid as allowed under former President Barack Obama's health care law.
Moustakas has unfinished business in Milwaukee
PHOENIX — Mike Moustakas fell one win shy of reaching the World Series with the Milwaukee Brewers. "I think we had some unfinished business after last year," Moustakas said Tuesday after finalizing a $10 million, one-year deal with the Brewers. "I loved playing here last year. It was a lot of fun. We fell a little bit short, obviously, but I feel like this team can get back to where we were at last year and make a push for the World Series."

Inside the battle to host the 2020 Democratic convention Kohl’s quietly discontinues its
registry service
WASHINGTON — Leaders in three major cities are in a last-minute scramble to win the 2020 Democratic National Convention, an event that could funnel millions of dollars into the local economy and put them at the center of the political world for one week next summer. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is choosing among Houston, Miami and Milwaukee. In recent weeks, some Democrats have privately suggested Milwaukee would get the nod, and a sense of finality set in once the DNC in December paid what were billed as the last visits to each city before a decision was made. MENOMONEE FALLS — First comes love, then comes engagement, then comes the gift registry. But in the case of area brides and grooms wanting to register for gifts at Kohls.com, they may be surprised that the option is no longer available. On the Kohl’s website, a notice was posted that the company decided to “discontinue registry service to focus on other priorities. We hope our customers will continue to choose Kohl’s Gift Cards for all their gifting needs.”
