A bullying incident in Sparta led to a packed school board meeting last night....and police involvement. Dan Deicher has more.

 

It started because a 13 year old boy was teased because he had pizza sauce on his shirt while riding home from school on a bus. Teasing went from name calling and that turned to slapping, punching and eventually the boy being put in a choke hold. One student is alleged to have placed his hands in his pants...and wiped it on the boy's face. The boy's Mother, Misty Morales told police what happened...they started an investigation but are tight lipped on the contents of it.

 

Sparta Administrator, John Hendricks told me one student has been dealt with so far......he could not comment on what the punishment was or how many more students were involved in the bullying.

 

Hendricks says the district has not taken bullying lightly over the past couple of years and he's interested in what discussion will take place now that the school board has set a meeting on the topic March 12th.

Students Talk Tuition

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) University of Wisconsin students are asking legislators to cap tuition increases. Students from 20 of the UW campuses around Wisconsin held a Capitol news conference Monday calling for a tuition cap. They say they don't want tuition to increase more than 3 or 4 percent in the new academic year starting this fall.

Gov. Scott Walker announced last week he will invest $181 million funding for the UW System. But he also wants to remove the current mandatory 5.5 percent cap on tuition and fees, leaving it to the Board of Regents to set tuition.

UW spokesman David Giroux calls Walker's budget sets the stage for a modest tuition increase. Giroux says the university will decide on the exact amount of increase by a vote in the summer.

Prison On Lockdown

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Wisconsin prison has gone into what authorities are calling a routine lockdown. Waupun Correctional Institution Warden Bill Pollard said in a statement Monday all activities at the prison, including visits, have been canceled for at least a week. Pollard says authorities have been planning the lockdown for several months so they can conduct searches for contraband such as cellphones, illegal drugs, tobacco and weapons.

He says the prison will gradually return to normal operations after the searches are complete.

Public information officials with the state Corrections Department didn't immediately return telephone messages seeking more details.
