LAONA - Whipping winds and off-and-on rain couldn't keep 91-year-old Bud Kuhrasch off the golf course Monday.
"Rain or shine, we'd be here," Kuhrasch said with a smile.
Then again, the weather doesn't really bother Kuhrasch. The U.S. Navy veteran helped invade Omaha Beach at Normandy on D-Day in 1944. On Monday, he joined two other World War II vets and more than 100 other veterans at Nicolet Country Club's annual outing.
HEMPSTEAD, NEW YORK - Donald Trump aggressively tried to pin the nation's economic and national security problems on Hillary Clinton in the first presidential debate, belittling the former senator and secretary of state as a "typical politician" incapable of delivering the change many Americans crave.
But Trump found himself on the defensive for much of the 90-minute showdown Monday night.
Clinton was thoroughly prepared, not only with detailed answers about her own policy proposals, but also sharp criticism of Trump's business record, his past statements about women, and his false assertions that President Barack Obama may not have been born in the United States.
The Democrat also blasted Trump for his refusal to release his tax returns, breaking with decades of presidential campaign tradition.
MADISON - The heavy rains that have caused flooding and landslides in parts of Wisconsin have also saturated the soil at record levels around the state.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that surplus moisture was found in 40 percent of the state's topsoil last week and 35 percent of its subsoil. Those are the highest levels for September and could raise the risk of future flooding.
MADISON - UW Credit Union has expanded its membership eligibility to include all current and former college students, a move Gov. Scott Walker is touting as way to help countless students refinance their loans.
The governor and credit union officials announced the expansion at a news conference on Tuesday.
Until now the credit union has served only current and past University of Wisconsin System and Madison Area Technical College students. It offers interest rates ranging from 2.2 percent to 6.8 percent.
Walker, a Republican, called the expansion another step in help students and alumni.
Scot Ross, executive director of liberal group One Wisconsin Now, told reporters after the news conference that the expansion likely won't help anyone because students and recent graduates typically lack collateral and a credit history.
WASHINGTON - The Senate has blocked a spending bill needed to keep the government open beyond Friday's midnight deadline.
Most Democrats and at least 10 Republicans voted to block the bill, which also funds the fight against the Zika virus. Democrats are demanding money to help Flint, Michigan, address its lead-tainted water crisis.
