RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- A River Falls company is facing $137,000 in potential fines following a trench collapse last year that killed a 19-year-old worker. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Five issued five citations this week against Gordy's Pumping Service. Company owner Jason Schaar says he disagrees with some of the details in OSHA's account. He says he has requested a conference with the agency.
MUSKEGO, Wis. (AP) -- Nearly 300 people have given Congressman Paul Ryan a standing ovation at the beginning of a Muskego listening session in his southeastern Wisconsin district.

Ryan didn't address the man's comment.
