Obama promoting economic 
gains as elections near
Bank loans used to collect 
unpaid medical bills

MILWAUKEE - Boosted by recent economic gains, President Barack Obama is sounding more bullish about the nation's recovery from the Great Recession and the White House is encouraging Democrats to show similar optimism as they head into the November mid-term elections.
>>5 things to know about Obama's visit to Wisconsin

ST. LOUIS - A health system with hospitals in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma and Wisconsin has started working with a bank to offer interest-free loans to patients with unpaid medical bills. Since SSM Health Care inked a deal with Commerce Bank five months ago, $6.5 million has been lent to about 4,000 patients, a news outlet reports. 

 

Brewers overpowered, 
swept by Giants
Kahne holds off Kenseth 
to win Atlanta shootout

SAN FRANCISCO - The Milwaukee Brewers have rarely been dominated the way they were this weekend in San Francisco. They have been atop the NL Central since early April. Now manager Ron Roenicke must get his players to regroup in a hurry as the September stretch run begins.

HAMPTON, Ga. -  Kasey Kahne's "downer" year received an important boost when he overcame his struggles with restarts with a big power move when he needed it the most. Kahne charged past Wisconsin native Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin in a two-lap shootout to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night.
Wisconsin apple growers 
say crop looking good
Cancer patient gets dying wish, 
weds gal he loves
MADISON - Wisconsin apple growers had an unusually heavy harvest last year, which they feared might lead to lower output this year. But the trees seem to have caught up enough that this year's crop should be good or even above average. The state produced 41.7 million pounds of apples last year. That was an 18 percent increase from the 2012 growing season, which had been hampered when an early thaw was followed by frost and drought, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. GREEN BAY - When Harley Thomas learned in August that he would have just three months to live, he told his doctors he wanted nothing more than to marry the woman he loves. The Cancer Team at Bellin Health granted that wish Thursday, and hosted a wedding for Thomas and Lori Feeley. Area businesses donated everything from Feeley's dress to the cake.
Chefs, breeders pair up 
to produce tastier veggies
Ferguson's flashpoint sparks national outrage
VERONA - There's a good chance that many of the suddenly trendy vegetables that foodies latch on to in the next decade will benefit from research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While plant breeders at many public universities focus on improving field corn, soybeans and other crops used in food manufacturing or livestock feed, those in Madison want to produce better-tasting vegetables.

LOS ANGELES - They were killed in Wisconsin, New York and California. Some were shot on the street. One was killed in a Wal-Mart. Another died after being placed in a chokehold. All died at the hands of police and all have been united by one thing: the killing of Michael Brown.

Revel starts shutdown Monday after just 2 years
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The most spectacular and costly failure in Atlantic City's 36-year history of casino gambling begins to play out Monday when the $2.4 billion Revel Casino Hotel empties its hotel.
