Rice Lake Comes Up Short
Wisconsin Lutheran won the Division-Three state high school football title today, 42-to-18 over Rice Lake at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. Lutheran led 20-to-10 at halftime, and pulled away with a 14-nothing scoring edge in the third quarter. Austin DeNoyer had two touchdown runs of two and 13 yards for Wisconsin Lutheran, which completed an undefeated season at 14-and-0. Erik Hovde threw a touchdown pass and ran one in himself for Rice Lake, which closed out at 10-and-4. The Division-Two title game was being played this afternoon between Waukesha West and unbeaten Menasha. The Division-One contest -- pitting two returning champions from a year ago -- is due to start at 4 p-m as Kimberly takes on Hartland Arrowhead.

Four Packers Listed as Questionable for Sunday's Game with Vikes
Four Green Bay Packers are listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota. They include defensive end Datone Jones, who hurt the same ankle he injured in October against the Miami Dolphins. Coach Mike McCarthy said Jones will get a final chance tomorrow to prove that he can ready for the Viking game. Also questionable are corner Jarrett Bush with a groin injury, outside linebacker Nick Perry with the shoulder injury that kept him out of practice all week, and outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott with a bad hamstring. Absent from the injury report was linebacker Clay Matthews, who aggravated a groin injury last Sunday and was limited at two practices this week. Matthews said yesterday he'd be ready to face Minnesota. Tight end Brandon Bostick remains out with a hip problem. Guards T-J Lang and Josh Sitton are probable.

Stout Administrator Killed in Accident
A woman killed in a Wednesday night Interstate crash was an administrator at U-W Stout. The State Patrol said 56-year-old Kay Schnur of Merrillan (marilyn) was driving east on I-94 near Osseo, when her car struck a deer. A semi-truck that was following her escaped the crash by veering to the left. However, another semi could not do the same thing quickly enough, and it rear-ended Schnur's car. That second trucker escaped injury. Schnur worked for more than two decades at the Stout campus in Menomonie, most recently as the director of enterprise and information systems. Her daughter, 25-year-old Stout student Anna Herrick, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Stout Chancellor Bob Meyer called Schnur's death a "devastating loss for the campus, and for everyone who knew her."

House Republicans File Suit Against the President on Obamacare
Just one day after Barack Obama expanded protections for immigrants, House Republicans filed suit accusing the president of overstepping his bounds on Obama-care. The lawsuit accuses the Democratic chief executive of unconstitutionally exceeding his powers -- and while it did not mention immigration, a G-O-P official says the party is thinking about including it. That would need approval by the House, which voted in late July to authorize the suit filed this morning against the Affordable Care Act. All five Wisconsin House Republicans voted in favor of authorizing that legal action -- and all three of the state's Democrats voted against it. Today's lawsuit targeted the U-S Treasury and Health-and-Human Service agencies. It accused the president of illegally delaying the one of the main requirements of the health care law -- that businesses with 50-or-more full-time workers offer acceptable insurance, or pay fines for not doing so. In announcing the lawsuit, House Speaker John Boehner said that if Obama "can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the case is without merit -- and she accused the G-O-P of prioritizing what she called the "special interests and the howls of impeachment-hungry extremists before the needs of the nation."

Players Union Officially Appeals Peterson's Suspension
(Washington, DC) -- As expected, the NFL Players Association is appealing the suspension of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. In a letter to the NFL Commissioner's office, the union accused Roger Goodell and the league of denying Peterson due process by "making up the process and punishment as it goes" and called for the case to be heard by an independent arbitrator. The NFLPA closed the letter by demanding that Goodell recuse himself from the appeals process, saying there is no way he could be impartial.

Walker says his Family is On Board if he Decides to Run for Prez
Scott Walker says his family is on board with the rigors of a presidential campaign, should the governor want to pursue it. The Republican Walker tells U-S News and World Report his wife Tonette would be on board for "just about anything," and he couldn't run for the White House without her support. Walker also said his two college-aged sons Alex and Matt are both "excited about that opportunity should it become available." Walker is getting a lot of national attention this week at the Republican Governors Association meeting in Boca Raton Florida. Yesterday, the online Washington news service Politico said Walker has started the framework for a presidential run. It said his advisers from the governor's election have stayed on -- and that Walker will ask lawmakers to approve conservative state budget planks that would appeal to national primary voters. The governor is not saying yet if-or-when he'll create a formal committee to help explore his prospects for replacing President Obama after the 2016 elections.
