Milwaukee program fosters 
friendship among diverse students



















MILWAUKEE - When students graduate from the Indian Community School, located on a wooded campus in Franklin, they leave a close-knit environment, where Native cultures, languages and values are woven into their education. They spread out to high schools across the Milwaukee area, where they are thrown into contact with students from different cultural, racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Last year, through a program called Repairing Together, the classmates learned about the lives of Jewish, Latinx and African American students.

Sheriff urges media to keep school stabber's name secret Audit faults oversight of state-owned residential properties
OSHKOSH, Wis. - A 16-year-old Wisconsin high school student who was shot after he stabbed a police officer could face attempted homicide charges, but authorities are asking media outlets to keep his name secret out of fear of sparking copycat incidents. Oshkosh West High School resource officer Michael Wissink shot the student on Tuesday after the teen allegedly stabbed him in his office. It's unclear what led up to the altercation. Wissink, a 21-year Oshkosh Police Department veteran, survived his wounds.

The audit came as the result of a tip to the state's waste, fraud and abuse hotline.
