Fowler Lake Village saga continues at marathon council meeting Lawsuit: Open enrollment
 violates disability law

OCONOMOWOC — The Fowler Lake Village debate provided some fireworks yet again at the Oconomowoc Common Council meeting Tuesday night when two lawyers — one an alderman, one representing the interests of the Fowler Lake Village development — locked in a verbal debate that resembled a cross-examination on a television court drama.

MADISON — Three families of children with disabilities argue in a federal lawsuit that Wisconsin's open enrollment program is unconstitutional because school districts can reject students with disabilities while accepting others. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Madison, also argues that it's discriminatory for schools to set quotas for how many students, both with disabilities and without, they will accept under open enrollment every year.
Matthews, Packers O-line, 
get movie star turns
Badgers look to sew 
up Big Ten West at Iowa
GREEN BAY — Clay Matthews' biceps are getting movie-star treatment. The Green Bay Packers' offensive linemen are showing off their fancy footwork in a film about an a cappella competition. A cameo appearance by Matthews, and linemen T.J. Lang, Josh Sitton, David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay in a new trailer for the upcoming movie "Pitch Perfect 2" drew about as much chatter Thursday after practice as coach Mike McCarthy's prolific offense.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Melvin Gordon's record-setting effort against Nebraska pushed Wisconsin one step closer to another Big Ten title. A repeat performance could send the 14th-ranked Badgers back to Indianapolis for the championship game— and Gordon to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

 

Iowa woman to receive honor 
from Milwaukee police
Ski hills off to earliest start in years

BURLINGTON — A Burlington woman is being honored for her part in saving a man's life at a Milwaukee music festival over the summer. Shelley Jochims and her family were attending Summerfest in July when her husband saw a man collapse on the Milwaukee lakefront. Jochims, a former nurse, jumped into action. She said the man wasn't breathing and had no heart rate, so she performed CPR and chest compressions. 

 

MADISON — January-like weather is drawing downhill skiers and snowboarders to the slopes in Wisconsin, where operators are taking the early start to the bank. The single-digit overnight temperatures have allowed ski hills to make snow around the clock and create some of the best conditions for November in years. 

 

Bankruptcy judge says 
no to ex-priest's claim
UW System names 
Milwaukee chancellor finalists

MILWAUKEE — A former priest accused of sexual abuse won't be getting any money from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in its bankruptcy case. Federal bankruptcy Judge Susan Kelley has tossed out a claim from Marvin Knighton, who says he was wrongly defrocked and money he contributed to his retirement account should be returned to him.

 

MADISON — The University of Wisconsin System has announced the three finalists vying to become UW-Milwaukee's next chancellor. The finalists are Gail Hackett, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Missouri-Kansas City; Mark Mone, UW-Milwaukee's interim chancellor; and William "Mike" Sherman, senior vice president and provost and chief operating officer at the University of Akron.
