Looks like one of the Dogbanes (Apocynum species):
Apocynum**** cannabinum: UW-Stevens Point Freckmann Herbarium: Plant Details Page
**** Apocynum********: UW-Stevens Point Freckmann Herbarium: Plant Details Page

Cut a little piece of stem and see if you get a milky sap.

I don't know, but I was going to guess Senna occidentalis, which has yellow flowers.

Could it be an Asclepia-Milkweed of some sort?
