The Faculty Senate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison voted overwhelmingly Monday for a resolution of no-confidence in the UW System president and the Board of Regents.
It’s an unusual circumstance. The faculty are upset about cuts to the university’s budget and other changes they think are weakening one of the state’s great institutions. Their method of protest is to weaken the position of the leaders in charge of representing them to state budget makers.
A severely injured bald eagle found in New Munster was released there today, after spending about seven weeks recuperating at a wildlife hospital in Walworth County.
A man spotted the eagle sitting in a field on March 11, and a Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist called Fellow Mortals wildlife rehabilitation center to capture the bird and see if it could be nursed back to health.
