GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says the sturgeon spawning season is about to begin. DNR biologist Ryan Koenig says male sturgeon have been "cruising" the Wolf River. That means spawning will likely start today or tomorrow with heavy spawning activity by the weekend.

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - Police have issued disorderly conduct citations to six high school seniors in Wausau for a toy Nerf gun battle. Some residents called police when they saw the young people pointing a gun at a car Tuesday night, but it was only a toy gun that shoots foam bullets. One parent who saw the Nerf gun battle says police went too far in issuing the citations.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Dane County judge is set to hear arguments today in a lawsuit challenging a 2012 law that sets out conditions for abortions. The law requires a doctor to determine whether the woman's consent is voluntary. Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit in February 2013 arguing the law is unconstitutionally vague. The organization argues it's unclear how doctors should determine voluntary consent.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Republican running to unseat Democratic U.S. Representative Ron Kind says he's backing out of the race so voters can line up behind a single candidate. Chris Anderson announced yesterday that he would no longer run for the seat in Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District. Anderson says he'll endorse Republican Tony Kurtz in the race.
