After 6 weeks, finally a 
deal on VA health care
Trial date set for 
Wisconsin Rep. Bill Kramer
WASHINGTON — After more than six weeks of sometimes testy talks, House and Senate negotiators have agreed on a compromise plan to fix a veterans health program scandalized by long patient wait times and falsified records covering up delays.

WAUKESHA — State Rep. Bill Kramer, former majority leader of the Wisconsin Assembly, is due to stand trial in October on sexual assault charges. During a hearing Friday, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Donald Hassin scheduled a status conference for Oct. 23 and a jury trial for Oct. 28.

 

Odorizzi goes 7 strong,
Rays beat Brewers 2-1
Next up for Packers 
extension: Maybe Cobb?
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jake Odorizzi won his third consecutive start, James Loney had two RBIs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Monday night.
Odorizzi (7-8) allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to beat the team that took him 32nd overall in the 2008 draft.
GREEN BAY— Randall Cobb doesn't know if he's next on the Green Bay Packers re-signing to-do list. His teammates are assuming that's the case. One day after fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson signed a reported four-year, $39 million contract extension, Cobb stood at his locker Sunday following the team's second training-camp practice and faced question after question about when he might get a new deal.
Poll: Prisons struggling 
with inmate rehab
Effectiveness of whooping 
cough vaccine is studied

MADISON — Wisconsin's criminal justice system is doing an average job, at best, at rehabilitating prisoners, according to most voters who responded to a recent Marquette University Law School poll. The poll released last week asked 804 registered Wisconsin voters to rate how they think the system is doing at turning inmates into contributing members of society. 

 

MONTPELIER, Vt. — Scientists and public health officials are studying a Vermont whooping cough epidemic to determine if the current vaccine is less effective against a new strain sweeping the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Vermont Health Department are examining the records of 854 people, ages 4 to 19, with confirmed or probable cases of pertussis from late 2011 into early 2013.

 

Fist bumps less germy
 than handshakes, study says
Alternative funds are 
drawing dollars, questions

NEW YORK — When it comes to preventing the spread of germs, maybe the president is on to something with his fondness for fist bumps. The familiar knocking of knuckles spreads only one-twentieth the amount of bacteria that a handshake does, researchers report. 

 

NEW YORK — They're hot, yet many investors have no idea what they do.  These mutual funds go by a few names, and it doesn't help that some are inscrutable like "liquid alts," but they generally fall under an umbrella known as alternative mutual funds.
