COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren framed their Democratic presidential bids in personal, faith-based terms Saturday before black millennial Christians who could help determine which candidate becomes the leading progressive alternative to former Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders, the Vermont senator whose struggles with black voters helped cost him the 2016 nomination, told the Young Leaders Conference that his family history shapes his approach to President Donald Trump's rhetoric and the rise of white nationalism in the United States.

Hamlin wins at Bristol to spoil DiBenedetto's upset bid
BRISTOL, Tenn. — The winner climbed from his car and immediately apologized for denying an underdog his first career victory. The runner-up, in tears over his near miss, was raucously embraced by the crowd for his oh-so-close effort. Bristol Motor Speedway was a bizarre mix of emotions Saturday night after Denny Hamlin chased down Matt DiBenedetto to spoil a Saturday night upset. DiBenedetto learned this week that Leavine Family Racing won't bring him back for a second season, and he has no job lined up for 2020.
3 years after Sherman Park violence, healing goes slow Wisconsin Center expansion cap raised

MILWAUKEE — It's a muggy 87 degrees, and police presence is thick in Sherman Park. As a squad and patrol wagon wait at a red light on Sherman Boulevard, two officers from the Milwaukee Police Department's District 7 sit at a bench in the children's play area. "The cops, kids and teens all hang out at the park; they're all here," said Trenayce Jordan, as she takes turns pushing her 2-year-old grandson, Logan, and 4-year-old son, Kyle, on side-by-side swings.

MILWAUKEE — The spending cap for the downtown Wisconsin Center expansion was raised Friday. The Board of the Wisconsin Center District voted unanimously to pass a resolution that raises the cap on agreements which the president and CEO and board chairman are authorized to make to $1 million.

Wisconsin Native Americans granted funds for green projects Grafton appeals decision on private school tuition
MADISON — Two Native American tribes in Wisconsin are receiving federal grants for renewable energy projects that tribe members say will help reduce costs and lead to energy independence. The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in Odanah received a nearly $1 million grant, while the Forest County Potawatomi Community in Crandon got a grant for more than $1.5 million. The grants, announced last month, will be used to install solar panels at tribal buildings. MILWAUKEE — The Grafton School District is asking a federal court to overturn a decision by a state administrative law judge that forced it to pay $78,000 a year in tuition, plus expenses, to send a student to a boarding school that specializes in learning disabilities. The Journal Sentinel reports the federal lawsuit argues that Judge Sally Pederson erred in July in finding that Grafton failed to provide a now 17-year-old student with the free and appropriate public education required by state and federal law.
