MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A forensic examiner's report says attorneys hired by Republican lawmakers to assist with the redistricting process withheld 34 emails to groups suing them despite court orders. The report finds lawyers with Michael Best & Friedrich didn't provide subpoenaed documents even after the judges charged them for filing frivolous motions. The emails cover the methods Republican used last year to draw new legislative and congressional maps.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Art Museum is hosting an exhibition of nearly 50 masterpieces. Milwaukee is the only Midwest city hosting "Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London." The exhibit runs through January 13th.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A survey by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says food prices dropped slightly between July and September. The bureau's "marketbasket" survey adds up the costs of 16 common food items. The total was 1.4 percent cheaper than the total from the previous three months.
