Wisconsin governor skirts
 touchy casino decision
Obama's visit comes amid 
tight governor's race

KENOSHA - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker portrays himself as a man of action, willing to take on tough political fights. It's a huge theme in his re-election campaign, underscored in his 2013 political memoir, "Unintimidated." However, as he enters the homestretch of a closely contested race, Walker has been trying to stay clear of a touchy issue for voters in densely populated southeastern Wisconsin.

MADISON - The last time President Barack Obama celebrated workers' rights at a Wisconsin Labor Day event, there was barely a hint of the turmoil that would embroil the state later when public employees staged massive protests in an unsuccessful bid to keep their collective bargaining rights.

RB Gordon ready for criticism 
after Wisconsin loss
Mark Reynolds breaks 
up no-hit bid in 3-1 loss

HOUSTON - Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon said he can already hear the critics. After watching a 17-point lead dissolve in dramatic fashion in No. 14 Wisconsin's 28-24 loss to No. 13 LSU on Saturday night, Gordon said he knew what was coming. "Obviously, people will say, 'Wisconsin can't win a big game,'" Gordon said. "I'm pretty sure we'll be hearing that all year."

SAN FRANCISCO - Mark Reynolds just wanted to get on base. He wasn't thinking about breaking up a no-hitter. Jake Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and finished with a one-hitter over 7 2-3 innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Saturday night.

 

5 things to know about 
Wisconsin midterm election
Cancer patient gets dying wish, 
weds gal he loves
MILWAUKEE - Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke are running neck-and-neck in recent polls, but close contests are nothing new for Walker, who survived a recall election just two years ago. With Election Day just two months away, here are five things to know about the races on November's ballot. GREEN BAY - When Harley Thomas learned in August that he would have just three months to live, he told his doctors he wanted nothing more than to marry the woman he loves. The Cancer Team at Bellin Health granted that wish Thursday, and hosted a wedding for Thomas and Lori Feeley. Area businesses donated everything from Feeley's dress to the cake.
Feds: Plane with unconscious 
pilot goes into ocean
Ferguson slowly starting 
to make comeback
CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. - A pilot lost consciousness and the plane drifted into restricted airspace over the nation's capital, scrambling fighter jets that stayed with the small aircraft until it ran out of fuel and crashed Saturday into the Atlantic Ocean, the Coast Guard said.

FERGUSON, Mo. - The unmistakable signs of healing are beginning to dot Ferguson, even the small area of this St. Louis-area suburb that was the center of attention for three weeks. But those in the community know they've got a long way to go.

Sesame catching on in southeast US
LAKE CITY, Ark. - Sesame is gaining a foothold in parts of the southeast United States, where cotton has long been king, as farmers take advantage of its drought tolerance and a recently developed trait that lets them bring it in with typical ag equipment. Thousands of acres from Arkansas to Florida and Georgia were planted in sesame this year - sometimes joining a rotation of cotton, soybeans and corn and at times spread in fields too far away from irrigation lines
