Judges chide state lawyers 
over gay marriage bans
Hundreds gather to honor
 slain journalist Foley
CHICAGO — Federal appeals judges bristled on Tuesday at arguments defending gay marriage bans in Indiana and Wisconsin, with one Republican appointee comparing them to now-defunct laws that once outlawed weddings between blacks and whites.

MILWAUKEE — Slain U.S. journalist James Foley was remembered Tuesday night as a person committed to social justice and as a modest friend who deflected questions about himself. Father Fred Zagone, the chaplain for the Marquette University Alumni Association, Foley cited the resonance of the Jesuit resolve he learned there after he was captured for the first time in Libya in 2011.

 

Nelson doesn't get much 
support in loss to Padres
Packers' Boykin making
noise with his play

SAN DIEGO — Milwaukee's Jimmy Nelson didn't pitch badly. It just wasn't good enough to beat the Padres. The Brewers' five-game road winning streak was snapped as they fell to San Diego, 4-1 on Tuesday night. "I felt there were a few pitches I missed over the plate," Nelson said. "But they're big league hitters and they did what they're supposed to do with it."

MADISON — A woman told police before she died that she had been shot by her brother-in-law, a newly retired Wisconsin sheriff's deputy suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease, according to new court documents. Andy Steele, a former Dane County Sheriff's deputy, was arrested after the shooting at his home Friday that left his wife, Ashlee Steele, and her sister, Kacee Tollefsbol, dead.

 

Civil War officer to receive 
Medal of Honor
Victim's family takes 
step toward suing Milwaukee
WASHINGTON — A century and a half after his valiant death in the Battle of Gettysburg, a Union Army officer is being awarded the nation's highest military decoration, thanks to a decades-long campaign by his descendants and Civil War buffs.

MILWAUKEE - The family of a man killed by a Milwaukee police officer four months ago has filed a notice of injury with the city, a procedural step that hints at a possible lawsuit. The notice was filed Tuesday by the family of Dontre Hamilton. The 31-year-old had been sleeping in a park April 30 when an officer confronted him.
