MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Governor Scott Walker has issued an energy emergency proclamation for northeast Wisconsin. That's because a petroleum pipeline between Milwaukee and Green Bay was shut down after a gasoline leak was detected Tuesday near Jackson. Department of Administration spokesman Chris Schoenherr (SHAYNE-hair) says Illinois-based West Shore Pipeline Company was repairing the leak and hoped to resume operations soon.

ONALASKA, Wis. (AP) — Archaeologists are finding ancient remains possibly of Native Americans in the ground beneath the reconstruction of Highway 35 in the La Crosse area. Scientists from the Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center say they've found almost two dozen likely skeletal fragments. They've also found hundreds of artifacts from the Oneota people who inhabited the Onalaska area between about 1300 and 1600 AD.
