MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Unemployment rates have dropped in most Wisconsin counties and cities.

Unemployment was unchanged in Mount Pleasant and it increased in Menomonee Falls and Racine.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin says Democrats need to be more vocal about how well health care reform is working. The Wisconsin Democrat talked politics during an hour-long discussion at Marquette University today. Topics included immigration, minimum wage and the nation's growing wealth divide.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A video in which a Green Bay police officer subdues a man aggressively outside a bar over the weekend has sparked an internal investigation after the footage was posted online. A Press-Gazette Media report says there hasn't been a formal complaint filed but police are investigating because of numerous emails and Facebook comments from people concerned about the actions.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A state appeals court says Wisconsin police were within their rights to place GPS trackers on cars before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled they need warrants. Police in Kenosha attached a tracker to Scott Oberst's car without a warrant in 2011. They used the tracker to gather evidence to build a drug case against him. Oberst's attorney says today he'll talk to Oberst about appealing to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
