Locke struggles, Brewers 
beat Pirates for 5th time in row

MILWAUKEE — Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle won't make a rash decision about Jeff Locke's spot in the rotation after another subpar start. Locke certainly isn't helping his case in the heat of a pennant race. Locke (7-9) was tagged for five runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings in a 9-4 loss on Wednesday night to the Milwaukee Brewers. The NL wild card-leading Pirates have lost five straight and seven of their last eight to the fourth-place Brewers.

QB Joel Stave finds stability with Chryst for No. 20 Badgers
MADISON — This time last year, quarterback Joel Stave wasn't having much fun. He has a much different outlook playing for a new, quarterback-friendly head coach in a new system at No. 20 Wisconsin.

Super PAC backing Scott Walker announces $9 million ad buy Board rejects transfer of strip club license
MADISON — A super PAC backing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's run for the White House announced a $9.25 million ad buy Wednesday for three early voting states, expanding on a $7 million television ad campaign that starts in Iowa next week. The ad buy announced by officials with the Unintimidated PAC comes as Walker tries to right his campaign after shooting to the top of the Republican field in Iowa earlier this year, only to plummet in recent polls as billionaire investor Donald Trump and neurosurgeon Ben Carson gained momentum.

TOWN OF TRENTON — A proposal to transfer a liquor license from a closed strip club to a different company was rejected by the town board Tuesday night. The former gentlemen’s club, Spearmint Rhino, has been closed for several months. ZES of Trenton LLC sought to have the liquor license transferred to Mookie Exotic LLC. A member of Mookie Exotic LLC’s board is Boro Buzdum of Slinger, who was part of a group that was denied an operator’s license by the board in July to reopen the club under the name TNT Gentlemen’s Club.

Walker, in office since 25, 
denies he's a career politician
Big cities scramble to be 
prepared for an oil train disaster

MADISON — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker denies he's a career politician — even though he has been in elected office since he was 25 years old and first ran for office when he was 22. The 47-year-old Republican presidential contender said in an interview with CNBC, released Tuesday, that he is "just a normal guy" and rejects the career politician label despite being in politics for most of his adult life.

 

PHILADELPHIA — They rumble past schools, homes and businesses in dozens of cities around the country — 100-car trains loaded with crude oil from the Upper Midwest. While railroads have long carried hazardous materials through congested urban areas, cities are now scrambling to formulate emergency plans and to train firefighters amid the latest safety threat: a fiftyfold increase in crude shipments that critics say has put millions of people living or working near the tracks at heightened risk of derailment, fire and explosion.
