MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The last time President Barack Obama came to Wisconsin to celebrate workers' rights on Labor Day, there was barely a hint of the turmoil that was to come. Union membership has plummeted in Wisconsin over the four years since Obama last attended the labor rally in Milwaukee, thanks to the 2011 law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers. The president's appearance tomorrow comes as the architect of that law, Governor Scott Walker, is locked in a tight re-election battle against Democrat Mary Burke.

MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) - Police say a high school football game in northern Wisconsin was suspended for about two hours and players and fans were sent to a gymnasium on lockdown due to shots fired nearby. Medford Police Chief Ken Coyer tells WJFW-TV a man opened fire around 3 p.m. just down the street from Medford Area Senior High School. The chief tells WEAU-TV a 19-year-old male suspect is in custody at the Taylor County Jail.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A 25-year-old Madison man has died after he was shot at an after-bar party behind a commercial property on the city's south side. The State Journal reports the victim's identity hasn't been released.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police say a male driver has been found dead - apparently shot after a hit-and-run in Milwaukee. Authorities say the driver was found dead Friday night in a vehicle that had gone off the road and hit a pole at 31st and Hope.
