Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

LAKE DELTON, Wis. (AP) -- Lake Delton, home to the long-running Tommy Bartlett ski show, has been dyed aqua-blue. Five-hundred gallons of dye has turned the lake from green to a more aesthetically-pleasing color. But the River Alliance of Wisconsin says it does nothing to clean up the lake in the long term.

DODGEVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Eight people have been hospitalized in Dodgeville for carbon monoxide poisoning. Police say officers called to a home last night found the residents, including five children, were experiencing the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. Authorities say carbon monoxide apparently was released in the house because a bird's nest was blocking an outside air intake.

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- About 80 World War II veterans will be honored in a special ceremony at the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual convention in Oshkosh. The event takes place this evening after the veterans return from a quick trip to Washington, D.C. Also at AirVenture today are eight Tuskegee Airmen who are expected to share their memories.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Governor Scott Walker has asked the U.S. Small Business Administration to declare Douglas County a disaster area because of last month's floods. Walker says the declaration would allow flood victims to apply for federal low-interest loans. Last month, a storm dumped eight to 10 inches of rain over Douglas County.
