Madison mayor says bench time 
for homeless should be limited
'Gut-wrenching' decision: 
Search for teens suspended

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. - After hundreds of rescue workers fanned out across a massive swath of the Atlantic for a full week, the Coast Guard's search for two teenage fishermen ended Friday, a heart-rending decision for families so convinced the boys could be alive they're pressing on with their own hunt. The agency said it ended the search at sunset, as it had announced earlier in the day.

Local, low-powered radio stations gaining steam in Wisconsin Couple creates purple martin 
habitat outside home in Scott
JANESVILLE - Local radio is on the rise in a big way even though the towers are short, the transmitters the size of home stereo receivers and the talent in need of more polish. Passion, dedication and a willingness to share locally produced programming that traditional commercial stations have abandoned, however, are abundant. SCOTT - Ike Kumrow said there are three things anyone trying to successfully attract and maintain a purple martin population must keep in mind: "location, location and finally, location." Kumrow and his wife, Jan, have lived on their five-acre "little slice of heaven," about nine miles north of West Bend for nearly 55 years. But Ike has had an enthusiasm for purple martins for even longer. Growing up on a farm, he saw many of the birds and became passionate about them.
