Walker says Burke ad 
shows her desperation
Absentee voting up 
in Wisconsin from 4 years ago
WESTON - Gov. Scott Walker said Friday that the latest attack ad by his Democratic challenger Mary Burke shows she is desperate as the election nears and a poll shows her trailing by 7 points. Walker, standing alongside New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, said after a factory tour at Wausau Supply Co. in Weston that Burke can see the trend of voters moving toward him and that's why she released the ad she did. MADISON - Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke have been saying for weeks that turnout will be the key to victory in Tuesday's election. The number of absentee ballots cast so far is up from four years ago, but which candidate will benefit most is unclear, political analysts said.

Stewart hits 200 mph, 
Kenseth takes Texas pole

FORT WORTH, Texas - Tony Stewart turned NASCAR's first 200-mph qualifying lap on an intermediate track Friday. He just did it too soon to win the pole for the Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway. The top spot went to Cambridge native Matt Kenseth, who had a final-round lap of 199.299 while Stewart slipped to sixth after winning the second round at 200.111 mph on the high-banked 1 1/2-mile track.

Milwaukee chief: Union 
vote is political move
Madison health group 
to stop selling sugary drinks
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee police angered by the firing of an officer who shot and killed a man in a downtown park took a vote expressing a lack of confidence in their chief, but the city's mayor said Friday that he was standing by Edward Flynn. Flynn fired Officer Christopher Manney on Oct. 15, saying Manney instigated the fight that led to the shooting with an inappropriate pat-down. Manney has appealed the firing. MADISON - Employees, patients and visitors will no longer be able to purchase sugar-sweetened beverages at a Madison health care system as it moves to encourage healthier choices. UW Health says it will remove the sugary drinks, as well as the deep fryers at UW Hospital, from its facilities by the end of the year. It will soon join a healthy living effort that's growing among hospitals nationwide.
Bayfield teacher takes 
students on trip to Siberia
Wausau man wages war 
on neighborhood rats
BAYFIELD - Getting students fired up about the place they live and the communities they are a part of can be a difficult task for educators. In what was initially considered a drastic move, Rick Erickson, Bayfield High School physics, chemistry and alternative education teacher, decided to take a journey to Lake Baikal in Siberia this summer with seven of his students as a way to promote place-based learning initiatives, foster community ties and to compare the cultures surrounding another one of the world's largest lakes. WAUSAU - World War II and Korean War veteran Neil Olson has seen swarms of rats in his life, and now the 89-year-old Lincoln Avenue resident is waging a one-man battle against the rodents in his neighborhood. "Rats and me, we don't get along," Olson said. "They've got a lot of places to hibernate and populate."
