A line
of thunderstorms made its way through the state last night (SAT), and the
National Weather Service says more storms are on their way today. N-W-S says the
strong line of storms made its way throughout most of the state, with severe
storms in Jefferson and Dodge counties clocking winds at 60 miles per hour.
Forecasters say additional storms, some severe, are expected today and for much
of the week.


A new
Miss Wisconsin was crowned last night (SAT). After three days of competition in
Oshkosh, Miss Madison-Capital City's Paula Mae Kuiper will represent the Badger
State in the Miss America Pageant and also won a 10-thousand dollar scholarship.
Kuiper will also tour the state to promote her platform.


Police are investigating the apparent murder-suicide of a Wisconsin couple at a
hotel on Saturday night. The Chicago Tribune reports the couple have been
identified as 56-year-old James Wright Jr. of Milwaukee and 46-year-old Kim
Wright of Oconomowoc. While an investigation continues and Chicago police are
not releasing many details, authorities from the Cook County medical examiner's
office believe Kim shot James, then killed herself.


300 people walked a gay rights march in Wausau yesterday afternoon (SAT). Event
organizers say the march went without incident and was very festive. A previous
gay rights march was cancelled after its organizer, Daxx Bouvier, says there
were fears for the safety of the participants after comments made by a city
council member.


County authorities are investigating another hanging death in a jail cell.
Authorities say 42-year-old Sonia Mojica of Port Washington was found hanging in
her cell last Sunday. Mojica was on life support and in critical condition, she
passed away yesterday (SAT). This marks the second hanging death at the Ozaukee
County Jail this month. On June 9, a South Carolina woman was found hanging in
her cell – she died on the scene. In both cased, authorities say the women were
screened and did not pose a suicide risk.


If you
were up early this morning around 6:30 – don't worry, the moon was just passing
by. This morning's "super moon" was a combination of a full moon and its closest
orbit to the earth. According to NASA, the natural occurrence happens about once
every 14 full moons in a full cycle. The next time the moon will get close to
the earth again is August 2014.
