Official: Referendum needed

A $3.5 million referendum that will be on the ballot April 3 is the only viable option to keep the Delavan-Darien School District competitive, Superintendent Robert Crist said. Crist said the school district is plagued by low funding caps from the state, and a referendum is the only way out of an almost 25-year funding slump. “We’ve climbed a mountain, and we’re at a plateau,” Crist said. “That’s why we need this. If we don’t get this, there will be significant cuts.”

Woman charged over deaths

A Milwaukee woman has been charged with suffocating three babies more than 30 years ago—cases that investigators initially attributed to sudden infant death syndrome, prosecutors said Friday. The cases were reopened in March 2015 after Nancy Moronez’s daughter told police her mother confessed to suffocating Moronez’s son with a garbage bag in 1980, prosecutors say. The two other infants died in 1984 and 1985 while Moronez was their baby-sitter.

Democratic memo released

A redacted, declassified memo released by Democrats on the House intelligence committee Saturday aims to counter a narrative Republicans on the committee have pushed for months—that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against President Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, abusing a secret surveillance process to spy on one of his operatives in its Russia investigation.
