Mid-Term Elections 2014

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin's Republican Gov. Scott Walker has defeated Democratic challenger Mary Burke, winning re-election to a second term. Walker's win Tuesday marks his third victory in four years. He won a first term in 2010 and a recall election in 2012 prompted by anger over a law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers. The win also keeps Walker in the mix for a potential 2016 GOP presidential bid, although he downplayed such talk during the tough re-election campaign against Burke. She is a former Trek Bicycles executive and state Commerce Department secretary who argued that Walker failed the state and was too divisive.  But Walker prevailed by arguing that he turned around the state's economy while cutting taxes and wiping out a budget shortfall.

The 29th annual district-wide Academic Achievement Recognition Ceremony is scheduled for is tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre. Each fall, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors from Central, Logan, and LaCrossroads High Schools who achieved a grade point of 3.5 or higher the preceding year are recognized and awarded by the Board of Education. Approximately 476 students will receive the award this year.

Students Madrigal Von Muchow, Logan High School and Joe Grosskreutz, Central High School have been selected to speak on behalf of their school. Teachers Eric Martin and Kevin Colburn were chosen by these students as making a significant difference in their lives and will also address the audience. Honored students, parents and guests are invited to attend the ceremony that will be followed by an ice cream social.

Students are eligible to receive the award for their academic achievement during their Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years. Recipients are awarded an academic letter (similar to a co-curricular letter) the first year, a lamp of knowledge pin the second year, and a bar the third year. Each qualifying student also receives an Academic Achievement Certificate. All students are encouraged to aim for this recognition. Since qualifying grade point averages are based on the previous year only, and not determined by cumulative grade point averages, it is never too late to strive for this significant recognition.
