The students who normally live in Drake Hall at U-W-L are spending Sunday night somewhere else. A basement fire early Sunday morning has led to evacuation of the dorm. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire has not been determined. Campus police say the fire may have started in or near a couch in the basement lounge.

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker said he's confident his integrity will remain intact after a secret investigation that has already resulted in charges against some former staffers while he was Milwaukee County executive. Two women on that staff were charged Thursday with engaging in political fundraising while at work. Two other former Walker associates were charged Jan. 5 with embezzling more than $60,000 from veterans and their families. Another man is charged with child enticement charges, evidence of which was allegedly discovered while investigating one of the others. At an appearance at a Milwaukee-area business Friday, Walker said he doesn't feel investigators are targeting him. He says he's always made it clear to his staff that they were prohibited from political activities while on the job.
(AP) State Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Tony Evers is pressing the Assembly to pass a bill that would freeze school voucher expansion. The state budget Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed last summer laid out new qualifying criteria for vouchers based on a city's size, poverty levels and per-pupil spending. The new standards made districts across Milwaukee County as well as in the city of Racine eligible. Voucher opponents fear the language could qualify schools around the state. The state Senate passed a bill in October limiting voucher participation to schools in the program when the measure takes effect. Walker has said he supports the legislation. But a spokesman for Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, a Horicon Republican, says Fitzgerald doesn't know if he has enough votes to pass it.
