Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

RED CLIFF, Wis. (AP) --The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa plans to lead an effort to raise dozens of barrels that were dumped into Lake Superior during the Cold War. After four years of planning, crews will raise the Department of Defense drums that contain ammunition parts.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials are urging Wisconsin residents to wary of eastern tent caterpillars. The creatures produce thick, white tents or webs in trees and their larvae consume leaves. The caterpillars are already active in southern and central Wisconsin thanks to the unusually warm spring.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lab testing in Wisconsin shows yellowfin tuna and a spicy tuna roll were contaminated with salmonella linked to a nationwide outbreak that's sickened 160 people in 20 states. Fifteen Wisconsin residents also became ill. All of the patients have recovered.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lightning struck twice for a Whitehall woman, who claimed two $1 million Powerball prizes at Wisconsin Lottery headquarters. Julie Trainor played two sets of numbers in the April 14th Powerball drawing, but changed only the Powerball she selected. After taxes, she's getting a cash payout of more than $1.3 million.
