MILWAUKEE (AP) Sheriff's officials in at least one county were advising motorists to stay home as a winter storm made travel dangerous and closed schools in eastern Wisconsin.
Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday.
The storm that paralyzed parts of the nation's midsection is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in counties near Lake Michigan and up to 6 inches in counties away from the lake.
Sheboygan County received 14 inches and sheriff's deputies issued a no travel advisory. Lt. Mark Rupnik says they have at least 10 calls for stuck vehicles they haven't been able to get to. He says people have been abandoning their vehicles.
The heavy snow also caused power outages in the Milwaukee area.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin will take its fight against the gypsy moth to much of the western portion of the state later this year, with aerial insecticide spraying in about one-third of the state's counties.
A Sparta mom's plea in front the school board last night after her son was
A crackdown on scrap metal thieves doesn't seem to be in the works
A bullying incident in Sparta led to a packed school board meeting last night....and police involvement. Dan Deicher has more.
It started because a 13 year old boy was teased because he had pizza sauce on his shirt while riding home from school on a bus. Teasing went from name calling and that turned to slapping, punching and eventually the boy being put in a choke hold. One student is alleged to have placed his hands in his pants...and wiped it on the boy's face. The boy's Mother, Misty Morales told police what happened...they started an investigation but are tight lipped on the contents of it.
Sparta Administrator, John Hendricks told me one student has been dealt with so far......he could not comment on what the punishment was or how many more students were involved in the bullying.
Hendricks says the district has not taken bullying lightly over the past couple of years and he's interested in what discussion will take place now that the school board has set a meeting on the topic March 12th.
