Wisconsin Sen. Herb Kohl announced that he will retire at the end of his current term, adding to Democratic woes in the party's effort to maintain control of the Senate. The decision by Kohl, 76, had been rumored for months. He had not raised much for a 2012 campaign, though he could have tapped his personal wealth from his family's department store chain. "I've always believed that it's better to leave a job a little too early than a little too late. And that's how I feel today," he said in Milwaukee.

Jerry Reynolds, the Sacramento Kings' director of player personnel, couldn't believe the news. "Is it for sure?" Reynolds said of Mike Dunleavy's decision to return to Milwaukee. "I'm really surprised. I just didn't think it would be possible that Mike would leave the Lakers. I knew he had some good feelings about the Bucks' organization in the past, but to leave a great franchise like the Lakers. . . . "In general, I thought everybody tries to get to the Lakers, not leave them."
