MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison activist's name is appearing on the vice presidential ballot in Wisconsin as a member of the Green Party. Ben Manski isn't actually running for the job.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials say deer hunters should report any sightings of wild pigs in the woods. Officials say the feral pigs are a serious environmental threat because they can destroy the landscape rooting for food, carry diseases and prey on fawns and ground-nesting birds.
