Raeanna Mary Johnson up; Gov. Scott Walker down

UP: Raeanna Mary Johnson. The 24-year-old Holmen woman wins the Miss Wisconsin Pageant, becoming the first person to hold the crown twice. Johnson was a runner-up in 2011 but ascended to the title after that year's winner, Laura Marie Kaeppeler, was named Miss America. Johnson wins a $10,000 scholarship and heads to the national pageant in Atlantic City on Sept. 14.

DOWN: Gov. Scott Walker. Documents from the secret John Doe investigation, which a federal judge has halted, are released, revealing that prosecutors suspect the governor was involved in a "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate fundraising and campaign activities during the recall elections. Observers say the case would be difficult to prove, but the charges tarnish Walker's national profile. Walker responds: "There's nothing wrong with what we did."

[Editor's note: This item is corrected to note that Raeanna Mary Johnson is 24 years old.]
