GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Authorities are still looking for two of seven men indicted in a large-scale methamphetamine seizure in Brown County. Drug agents seized more than 10 pounds of meth that has a street value of about $485,000. Heroin, LSD, marijuana and prescription drugs were also seized.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police say two officers on foot patrol were injured in a hit-and-run crash on the city's northwest side. Police say the incident happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday when the suspect's vehicle ran into another vehicle that struck the officers. They were transported to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. The suspect fled the scene.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for her role in the death of a 7-year-old boy who was tortured. Forty-five-year-old Etter Hughes was convicted last month of four felonies, including child neglect causing death. Authorities say Trevion Winningham was starved, burned with cigarettes, beaten and whipped with cords. He weighed 44 pounds at the time of his death in November.

LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - House Speaker Paul Ryan is pitching Republican plans for overhauling the nation's tax code at a shoe factory in Lawrence, Massachusetts, as demonstrators outside protest GOP efforts to repeal former President Barack Obama's health law. Ryan delivered a stinging indictment of the current tax code, calling it inefficient, unfair and too complicated. He said the tax code puts businesses at a disadvantage against foreign competitors and overwhelms families who can't fill out their own tax forms.
