FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- A 24-year-old man accused of driving drunk and killing a couple in Fond du Lac County has been ordered to stand trial. Daniel Shea waived his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday. Seventy-three-year-old Paul Grahl and his 59-year-old wife, Joanna, were killed last month when Shea allegedly crossed the center line.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Sussex-based company that has printed Newsweek for decades says the magazine's demise will have little effect on them. Newsweek's editor announced it will shift to an all-digital format at the end of the year. A spokeswoman for Quad/Graphics says the company won't be cutting jobs and it's sad to see the magazine end its print edition.

Fitters bought her ticket for the September 26th Powerball drawing at a Casey's General Store.
