outlook for Obama health law
Quack in action
WASHINGTON — A surge of eleventh-hour enrollments has improved the outlook for President Barack Obama's health care law, with more people signing up overall and a much-needed spark of interest among young adults. Nonetheless, Obama's announcement Thursday that 8 million have signed up for subsidized private insurance, and that 35 percent of them are younger than 35, is just a peek at what might be going on with the nation's newest social program.

WAUKESHA – Downtown Waukesha’s rubber duck race has been saved, ironically all thanks to a bill. Specifically, a bill signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday that legalized rubber duck races, previously forbidden by the Justice Department because such races supposedly were considered illegal gambling. In light of the new law, the downtown Waukesha rubber duck race is planned to take place at about 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, the same day as the Farmers Market and the fall Art Crawl.

Pirates dominate Brewers 11-2

MILWAUKEE — Seated at a table on the Milwaukee Bucks' home court, Peter Zehren looked around the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday and acknowledged that the facilities look out of date. But the Milwaukee resident was firm when he said taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for an upgrade. "It's a travesty to average citizens who deserve a better environment and safer streets," said Zehren, 53, who runs a nonprofit consulting firm. "Let them tax people when they go to events here."

PITTSBURGH  — Andrew McCutchen hit his first homer of the season and drove in three runs, Pedro Alvarez had a three-run shot and pinch-hitter Josh Harrison broke a tie with a long ball in the seventh inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates handed the Milwaukee Brewers their first road loss, 11-2 on Thursday night. Harrison's two-run drive down the left field line off Rob Wooten (0-1) was the second of his career as a pinch hitter.
