The TSA has announced, by the end of the year, Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport will be one of 100 in the U.S. where travelers can walk through security checkpoints wearing their shoes and belts. Mitchell is benefiting from an expansion of the TSA's expedited screening program, PreCheck, which allows travelers with clearance to use special security. 

What is supposed to be a summit about the global economy will likely turn into a debate over possible action against Syria when the G-20 conference begins in Russia this week. While the U.S. and Russia have polar opposite views on military action, the 18 other countries are expected to weigh in on their views during the summit.

A U.S. military strike against Syria is one step closer after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 10-7 to approve a resolution authorizing this action. The Senate will vote on the bill next week.

This month, the Sam and Gene Johnson Community Fund will match up to $75,000 in donations to the WI Human Society's Racine campus. Now through Sept. 30th, any gift to the Racine shelter will be doubled to boost the impact on helping the area's homeless, injured and abused animals.
