URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

ATC seeks approval to rebuild two aging power lines

Power lines (Reuters)

PORTAGE, WI (WTAQ) - The American Transmission Company has asked for state approval to rebuild two more aging power lines in south central Wisconsin.  

The Pewaukee firm has filed requests with the DNR and the Public Service Commission to rebuild a 25 mile line from Prairie du Sac to Portage -- plus a 20 mile line from Montello to Wautoma.  

ATC says the copper wiring on the Portage line is about 100 years old, and both lines are in poor shape.  

The two lines would cost around $51 million to upgrade. If the state approves, the work would be done in 2017.  

Also, ATC has a request pending for a 20 mile transmission line upgrade in Walworth and Rock counties, plus a new substation at Clinton. That project would cost around $40 million.  

The PSC recently approved an $11.5 million rebuilding project in the Kenosha County towns of Paris and Somers. That 12-and-a-half-mile improvement is set for this fall.
