New coalition pushes for transportation spending US wealth gap putting
 the squeeze on state revenue

MADISON— Wisconsin's highways are aging, congestion is worsening in Milwaukee, Madison and other urban areas and there is demand for public transit, even in rural areas, that isn't being met. Meanwhile, the state faces a projected $680 million deficit in its transportation budget, meaning there won't be enough money to pay for existing needs and projects, let alone any new ones.

 

WASHINGTON — Income inequality is taking a toll on state governments. The widening gap between the wealthiest Americans and everyone else has been matched by a slowdown in state tax revenue, according to a report being released Monday by Standard & Poor's.

 

Clark, Reynolds homer 
as Brewers beat Reds 9-2
Rodgers, Packers roar 
back to beat Jets 31-24
MILWAUKEE — Matt Clark hit a three-run homer in Milwaukee's five-run seventh inning, and the Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 on Sunday. Mark Reynolds added a solo shot in the eighth as the Brewers won for the fourth time in five games. Matt Garza (8-8) allowed one run and four hits in six-plus innings.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Once they figured out the New York Jets' running game, the Green Bay Packers set the tone through the air. Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns, Jordy Nelson had a career-high 209 yards receiving and the Packers rallied from an 18-point deficit to win their home opener 31-24 on Sunday.

Civil War officer's heroism 
earns Medal of Honor
Gamers use police hoax to
 lash out at opponents
WASHINGTON — After an act of Congress and years of lobbying by descendants and admirers, a Union Army officer who made the ultimate sacrifice more than 150 years ago will be recognized for his heroism when President Barack Obama grants him the nation's highest commendation for battlefield valor. DENVER — The calls to 911 raised an instant alarm: One caller said he shot his co-workers at a Colorado video game company and had hostages. Another in Florida said her father was drunk, wielding a machine gun and threatening their family.
Walker promising to cut 
taxes, require drug tests
Casino not a done deal but jobseekers still sought
MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker's promises for a second term include cutting property and income taxes for individuals, requiring drug tests for those seeking unemployment and food stamp benefits and freezing tuition at technical colleges and the University of Wisconsin System. KENOSHA - Gov. Scott Walker still hasn't decided whether to approve a proposed off-reservation casino in Kenosha, but that hasn't stopped the team leading the project from launching a website for prospective job seekers. The Menominee Nation and Hard Rock said Friday that they created the website to prepare for the "likelihood of approval."
