But we start in the fox cities... nearly 400 people will get to keep thier jobs following a deal made to keep a kimberly- clark plant open here in wisconsin.

Governor walker reached a 28-million- dollar deal with that company over five years... that didn't require approval from the state legislature.

It was reached under powers the governor currently has but would be taken away under a bill republicans passed in a lame-duck session last week.

Governor-elect tony evers is asking why governor walker should be able to make that major economic decision on his own.

Ever's also urging walker to veto the legislation that would limit his power in office come january.

Yesterday... he joined a group of incoming governors in d- c... getting some face time with president trump on topics like improving roads and bridges... veteran services... and the opioid epidemic.

Evers will continue his statewide budget tour in la crosse tuesday.

Two men are are in the hospital with stab wounds -- and a third is facing charges -- after a fight downtown last night.

It happened just before 10... along north hancock street...a couple blocks off the capitol square.

Both men are in the hospital ... one with stab wounds to his face and stomach.

They face felony charges of recklessly endangering safety...while a third man is facing a charge for assisting in the fight.

If you were one of the many people in dane county affected by this summer's flooding ... you have one last chance to get your questions answered face- to-face by fema representatives.

The disaster recovery center on parmenter street in middleton will be open until 2 this afternoon ... before closing for good.

You still have until monday to register for aid through fema.

You can do that online at 'disaster assistance dot gov' .

Today: patchy fog early, otherwise becoming mostly sunny and pleasant.

High: 39 wind: nw 5-10 mph tonight: mostly clear; patchy fog developing overnight.

Low: 22 wind: light n developing this morning - china is announcing a 90-day suspension of tariff hikes on 126-billion- dollars of u-s cars, trucks and auto parts.

That suspension -- starting january first -- is the result of a ceasefire in the trade war between the u-s and china.

American cars exported to china were being taxed a 25- percent penalty tariff...and auto parts were subject to a 5- percent charge.

The president agreed to suspend u.s. tariffs on chinese goods while the two countries negotiate.

Federal prosecutors in manhattan are investigating whether president trump's inaugural committee inapproporiately spent some of the money it raised from donations.

That's according to the wall street journal.

The criminal investigation is looking at whether some top donors gave money in exchange for access to the trump administration... which would violate federal corruption laws.

Authorities are investigating the death of a seven-year-old girl from guatemala ... who died after boarder patrol took her into custody.

She and her father had entered the country illegally.

Hours later... she started having seizures and was revivied after going into cardiac arrest.

Less than a day later she passed away.

The washington post reports the girl died of septic shock and dehydration.

The department of homeland security says an autopsy has been scheduled.

Madison officers... staff on the u-w campus... and some people living in middleton are among those wondering who's responsible for fake bomb threats that were sent to them yesterday.

Authorities across four different countries are searching for a suspect this morning... but they're stressing the threats that were sent yesterday are not credible.

Nevertheless... they caused mass evacuations at courthouses, schools, businesses, and dozens of other places.

Baraboo police are increasing officer presence at schools and school district buildings... after an anti-semitic video and flyers targeted the schools earlier this week.

Those threatened students and teachers to stay away next tuesday... which is when the high school is scheduled to have an all-day event focused on tolerance.

This is all in response to the photo of baraboo students appearing to give a nazi salute.

Tuesday's program will go on as scheduled, as the threats are not believed to be credible.

There's a reminder from madison's streets division to not put old clothes in your recycling bin as you clean out the closet this season.

Old shirts and pants... as well as ropes and hoses... can get tangled up in the sorting equipment.

Those crews encourage you to donate to area thrift stores instead of trying to recycle those fabric items. local pet store owners are urging families to consider cost and time before adding a pet to the mix this holiday season.

Each year, a number of animals- larger breeds of dogs in particular, that end up in shelters a few months after christmas when families realize they can no longer take care of them.

While cats may cost a little less than dogs, either can cost anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand... every year.

Pet store owners say you should also factor in how much time you have.

If you're rarely home or busy shuttling your kids around to a long list of after-school activities, this year may not be the ideal time to adopt a pet.

A die-hard packers fan isn't going to be standing on the soldier field sidelines in his green-and-gold on sunday, after losing a court battle.

The chicago tribune reports a federal court judge denied green-bay resident russell beckman's temporary restraining order... against the bears yesterday.

He filed the lawsuit in june of 2017, alleging he was barred from a pre-game event on the sidelines because of his packers gear... back in 20-16.
