TOWN OF PULASKI, Wis. (AP) -- A man cutting trees in Iowa County died yesterday after he was killed by a falling limb. Authorities say the 64-year-old man was working on private land in the Town of Pulaski when a limb broke and fell on him.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A 21-year-old Madison woman is facing felony charges for allegedly leaving her 2-year-old son in traffic as she beat her boyfriend. Authorities say Tawanna Rhynes followed her boyfriend across a busy road earlier this month while holding the toddler. She put the boy down in a lane of traffic and started hitting and kicking the man. A bystander moved the boy out of the road.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials will brief the Natural Resources Board on chronic wasting disease in northwestern Wisconsin tomorrow.
