MADISON - Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell lines up with other Wisconsin election officials in deciding not to use a model ballot for the November election which has been challenged as confusing. Although McDonell is a Democrat, most of the opposition has come from Republicans, who say that ballot benefits Democrats. He says he will use a ballot which includes shading to differentiate the offices and candidates. That’s the look ballots have had for years. McDonell says some changes have been made on the ballot which Dane&
PITTSBURGH - Yovanni Gallardo gave his team a chance to stay in the race by pitching seven shutout innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday night. His bullpen gave up the lead and the game in the eighth when Pirates catcher Russell Martin hit a three-run homer off reliever Jonathan Broxton. That blast high-lighted a four-run rally which pushed Pittsburgh past Milwaukee, 4-2. Their third straight loss drops the Brewers four-and-a-half-games behind Pittsburgh for the second Wild Card playoff position. The Brewers were leading 2-0 when Martin co
MADISON - Wisconsin's job creation agency did not keep records to justify all its spending on travel, salaries, and grants during its first two years. The Legislative Audit Bureau released a fiscal review today of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, the public-private agency Governor Scott Walker created in 2011.

PRESCOTT - A series of pranks around Prescott High School caused enough damage which caused the school to cancel the school's Homecoming parade and almost move the football game from Laney Field. District and high school officials canceled this afternoon's parade and cut short the scheduled pep rally due to the pranks which reportedly took place last evening. KDWA AM 1460 radio broadcaster Nick Tuckner said on his Twitter feed the damage was serious enough that moving the game was "a potential option." KDWA broadcasts Prescott sporting events. The Prescott-New Richmond football game w
GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers' starting tackle Bryan Bulaga is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit. Bulaga injured a knee 15 days ago against Seattle, and he did not play in last Sunday's Packer victory over the New York Jets. He practiced on a limited basis this week, but coach Mike McCarthy said Bulaga is progressing well. The Packers did not practice today, and they'll have one final workout tomorrow. McCarthy said tomorrow's practice will decide Bulaga's fate for Sunday.
