On Verona again ends Parker season
Coach K says it would be nice to mix it up a bit because they keep losing to Verona! Now that there is actually competition in this sectional he wants Verona put in a different one so Parker can get back to state. How about just beating them and quit whining about it. Congrats Verona and Milton on a great year.
On Janesville School District ponders budget options
Well this school board has forced another great person to leave/retire from this mess of a district. Congrats to Dr. Kuehne on his retirement. He will be sorely missed but he is smart to get out now.
On Coyotes abundant, troublesome in Rock County
Where we hunt in Lafayette Co. they are everywhere. I have heard packs of 10-20 at night on the farms over there. They have killed calves, colts, pigs, you name it they kill it. I live in Janesville and have had them chase rabbits out of the wooded greenbelt area behind our house right up to the deck where the rabbits ran under. The guys I know have the most success hunting them with dogs. They have got rid of over 100 of them this winter alone back where I hunt in Lafayette Co. Get rid of them all!!! Let the hunting bashers begin!!! I love it!!!!
On Adler resigns as Craig boys soccer coach
Coach Adler is not the only coach in this district that feels like the District Athletic Director is of no help.
On Parker's start helps beat Craig
Very well put bballan. I guess the illegal "get togethers or shoot-arounds" that every other person would call a practice held again at the Athletic club on both snow days paid off again for Parker. Everyone knows it goes on but Mr. Porter won't do anything about it again this year. Oh well, win at all costs.
On Change means acknowledging, overcoming bad news
I could not have said it better myself NVgrf!! I think most teachers are tired of this being shoved down everybody's throats because it "works so well for hospitals"
On O'Leary resigns as Craig football coach
One of his beliefs he has told the players over the years has always been: Family First, School work second, Football third. He truly deserves the time to be with his kids and watch his own children's activities. Thank you and best of luck Coach O.
On Janesville School Board to consider size of fund balance
You're welcome SDJ!
The end of the year budget #'s are filtering in. "Yet again, the District is taking a premium holiday for May and June this year which involves 4 payrolls. The premium amount generated per payroll is roughly $595,000 so the savings will total approximately $2,380,000. The administrators, support staff and custodians also are having a premium holiday right now." This has become an annual gift from the JEA to the SDJ.
Tonight's school board meeting will reveal a $31 million reserve fund balance. This is $7 million more than the projected ending balance and conservatively $10 million more than what DPI recommends. In the past year, the SDJ cried poverty to institute teacher premium sharing, cut programs & staff, and raise fees--yet the fund is growing at an unprecedented pace.

Sodeman's kids are homeschooled so that tells you how much he appreciates teachers in this district.
