BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is holding a fundraiser for victims of the Brookfield salon shootings along with Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun. The two own a Brookfield restaurant and say they're connected to the community.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison activist's name is appearing on the vice presidential ballot in Wisconsin as a member of the Green Party. Ben Manski isn't actually running for the job. His name was a placeholder that was put on petitions by Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein before she selected Cheri Honkala.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials say deer hunters should report any sightings of wild pigs in the woods. Officials say the feral pigs are a serious environmental threat because they can destroy the landscape rooting for food, carry diseases and prey on fawns and ground-nesting birds.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The estate of a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright is giving 179 works created by self-taught artists to the Milwaukee Art Museum. An exhibition of the works will be held sometime in the future.
