State budget shortfall 
projected at $2.2 billion
Lawmaker promises to pass
 special needs vouchers
MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker's administration said Thursday that Wisconsin faces a $2.2 billion budget shortfall by mid-2017, a problem that will have to be tackled by the Republican-controlled Legislature next year as Walker builds his resume for a potential presidential run and looks to deliver on a campaign promise to cut taxes. MADISON — A Republican lawmaker whose daughter has Down syndrome promised Thursday that a divisive proposal to create a voucher to help students with disabilities attend private school in Wisconsin will pass "one way or another." Rep. John Jagler said creating a special-needs voucher is his top priority and he will be discussing it with Gov. Scott Walker.
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.

MILWAUKEE — A 4-year-old Racine girl is making a remarkable recovery after she was shot in the head, according to her mother. Janikka Marsh said her daughter, Ja'Nyela Marsh-Highshaw, is awake and communicating after suffering a gunshot to the head about two weeks ago. 

 

21 Indian reservations 
joining buyback program
Fowler Lake Village saga 
continues at marathon council meeting

BILLINGS, Mont. — Federal officials on Thursday doubled the number of American Indian communities involved in a $1.9 billion government effort to return lands on reservations to tribal ownership. Twenty-one Indian communities in 12 states will join the land buyback program by 2017, said Deputy Secretary of the Interior Mike Connor. That brings the number of locations in the program to 42.

 

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.

For a single, extraordinary night, no man’s land was every man’s land. It was Christmas Eve 1914 on the Western Front and, out of the darkness, a young German soldier began to sing “Stille Nacht”—the start of a miraculous night of camaraderie, music, and peace. Now 100 years later, renowned choral ensemble Cantus hauntingly recreates the astounding moment in history when World War I soldiers set down their arms for one night to celebrate the holidays with the enemy.
