On Delavan grads, parents get down at ceremony
It was great to see Dr Overturf's signature on the diplomas.
On Delavan-Darien official out
Wendy was not in the union in this position.
bob-what that is is honoring a contract that was entered into several years ago. Perhaps changed slightly due to them wanting her gone now. If they wanted her gone today, the contract said they should have given notice two years ago. My hat goes off to Dr Overturf, she held up her end of her contract and is leaving like they want. She will be missed by many in the district.
On Delavan-Darien Superintendent offered buyout
@Hubb2753 - there is no decision in the buy out matter. It's in the contract. They have a choice - 1) letting her run her course until she retires and paying her in whatever duty she assumes during that time or 2) cutting her loose now and paying the buyout which is guaranteed by the contract they approved for her. Whatever happens, I wish Wendy the best in dealing with this ugly group.
On Mobile food stand cooks up issues in Milton
I have been frequenting Los Agaves about once a week for the last few months. Normally have lunch there. In fact I went today and they acknowledged the increase due to the story in the Gazette. I had noted their trucks parked in their parking lots at off times and wondered where they went. I spent about 25 years living in California and the "roach coachs" were prevalent in factory and construction areas. They do a great service and for those intimidated, all I can say is step up to the plate with a better product and you'll survive. Whining and sitting on your hands fretting will get you nothing. Leave them alone, they apparently have done everything properly. Good competition is great for all of us consumers!
It appears that this whole matter has been mishandled by the DD school board. I know for certain Dr Overturf has been effective in prior assignments and was extended the contract she has by the board. If the board was dissatisfied they should have long ago pulled the plug on the automatic renewal/extension. If they want her out now then the board and the district need to tender her the two year check. Too many people now days are trying to get out of agreements that they have made. She negotiated that in her contract and I have to say it should be honored.
On Delavan-Darien Superintendent considering buyout?
On 6 fake Democrats force Wis. primaries in recalls
I think that it is interesting that these candidates are referred to as "fake"; but the press terms the Dems that are doing the same thing as "placeholder" candidates. Perhaps some bias by the press? Ya think!
On Driver in crash will be ticketed
Why did they close HWY A, the accident was on HWY 12 near Hwy O? HWY A is miles south of 12 in that area. Perhaps too much helicopter traffic! LOL!
