BEULAH, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in northern Michigan believe they've found the body of a kayaker who went missing nearly two years ago.

The letter Thursday is signed by four or Rainey's Common Council colleagues.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has asked President Donald Trump's administration to issue a federal disaster declaration for six northwestern Wisconsin counties that saw flood damage in June.
