MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The plaintiffs in a lawsuit have agreed not to ask for a temporary halt to enforcement of Wisconsin's ban on gay marriage. Instead, they're asking a federal judge to issue a quick decision on the overall case. The American Civil Liberties Union, which is suing on behalf of eight gay couples, decided Tuesday to withdraw its request for a temporary injunction after district attorneys in Milwaukee and Eau Claire counties agreed not to prosecute two couples who recently got married in Minnesota.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Scientists have found evidence that invasive Asian carp have spawned much farther north in the upper Mississippi River than previously recorded. The U.S. Geological Survey says Asian carp eggs, including late-stage embryos nearly ready to hatch, were recently identified in samples collected as far north as Lynxville in southwestern Wisconsin. Scientists are still trying to confirm whether the eggs are from bighead or silver carp, though it's possible some of the eggs are from grass carp.
