MADISON — A federal appeals court has refused to reconsider a pair of rulings affecting Wisconsin's voter ID law, meaning no more changes to the requirement are likely before the November election. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday unanimously declined to have a full panel of judges hear appeals of two recent rulings affecting the voter ID requirement and a host of other election-related laws.

Brewers hit 3 HRs, give up 4-run lead in 9-6 loss to Pirates

MILWAUKEE — Hernan Perez homered twice and reliever Tyler Cravy went deep for his first career hit. However, it wasn't enough for the Brewers. Milwaukee gave up an early four-run lead to Pittsburgh, and Gregory Polanco had a tiebreaking three-run double in the eighth inning to lift the Pirates to a 9-6 victory Saturday night. The Brewers batted around in the first inning and took a 4-1 lead, sparked by Perez's three-run homer off Pirates starter Jameson Taillon.

Governor offers $4.5M for troubled Milwaukee neighborhood Study finds elevated fish tumor levels in 3 Wisconsin rivers

MILWAUKEE — State officials promised $4.5 million for job creation and other economic assistance for Milwaukee's north side on Friday, hours before nearly 2,000 people showed up for the funeral of a black man fatally shot by police. Community members say long-simmering frustration over unemployment and economic disparities underlie the violence and destruction of property that rocked Sherman Park for two nights following the Aug. 13 killing of Sylville Smith.

MILWAUKEE — Researchers have found elevated numbers of tumors in fish in the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic rivers, suggesting that more cleanup efforts are needed to remove contaminants from the three Wisconsin waterways. The study led by the U.S. Geological Survey found elevated skin and liver tumors in white suckers. It also found that some male white suckers sampled for the study had testicular tumors.

 

Study: Wisconsin villages struggling with economic recovery Sheriff: Man confesses in killings of 2 Mississippi nuns

MADISON — A new study suggests that Wisconsin's villages have struggled more with economic recovery than larger cities since the big recession of 2008-09. The study also found the controversial Act 10 that was passed to limit collective bargaining by public workers saved local governments about $100 million, or 1.5 percent of total spending, in 2012. "Act 10 was arguably the greatest reform for local governments in at least a generation, as they now have more freedom to manage their budgets," said Tom Evenson, a spokesman for Gov. Scott Walker.

DURANT, Miss. — A man suspected in the slayings of two nuns found dead in their Mississippi home confessed to the killings, a sheriff said Saturday, in the latest twist to a crime that has horrified people in the small communities where the women served. Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, of Kosciusko, Mississippi, was arrested and charged in the deaths of Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain said late Friday. Both women were 68.
