A second community meeting in the Clintonville High School commons was held March 14 to gather information from the public that could guide a school district referendum in April 2020.

Attendees were asked what services they expect the school district to provide for the school and the community.

Those in attendance listed academics and real world skills experiences as very important. Other items of importance included history (including local history), the arts, partnerships with employers, good student behavior, performances in the community and mental health concerns.

Some of the other concerns that were listed included trade and art skills, career readiness, the need for additional supports, conflict resolution, having a positive climate, a safe harbor when needed, opportunity for adult education at Fox Valley Technical College, a food truck and reaction to community and employment needs.

Woman allegedly handed out marijuana cookies at Mooseyard parade

A Shawano woman accused of handing out marijuana-laced cookies during the St. Patrick’s Day festivities in Wescott Saturday is facing two felony drug charges in connection with her alleged activities.

Cathleen K. Krause, 57, was arrested after Shawano County authorities received a call reporting that a woman was handing out drug-laced cookies during the annual holiday parade in Wescott’s Mooseyard.

According to the criminal complaint, a sheriff’s deputy was told that a woman wearing a green St. Patrick’s Day hat and wearing a leather coat had handed out a cookie that she said had marijuana in it.

The reporting party had taken a picture of the woman, later identified as Krause, and showed it to the deputy, who located and questioned Krause.

The complaint states Krause was visibly intoxicated, and her breath smelled of alcohol and marijuana.

Barker waives preliminary hearing in child’s death

A Shawano woman charged in the death of her 2-month-old child waived her preliminary hearing Tuesday in Shawano County Circuit Court and was scheduled for arraignment next month.

Catherine R. Barker, 22, faces felony counts of neglect resulting in the death of an infant, failing to report the death of the child and attempting to hide or bury the corpse.

The infant, Brandon Barker, was her son. He was discovered by police during a welfare check Sept. 28.

In a separate civil action Tuesday, a Shawano County judge ruled in a paternity case that Shawn Duster Daney, 34, currently an inmate at Oshkosh Correctional Institution, is the child’s father.

Barker was initially found not competent to stand trial in November and was ordered to be temporarily institutionalized to receive treatment and therapy that could make her mentally competent in the future.

She was subsequently ruled competent at a hearing on March 4.

Snow melt, rainfall demand caution in spreading manure

With snow melting and rain falling on frozen soil, Wisconsin’s Runoff Risk Advisory Forecast is completely pink today, meaning the risk of manure runoff is severe statewide.

DATCP encourages farmers to keep this in mind as they consider emptying manure storage that may be full. Spreading manure while the risk of runoff is severe could cause manure runoff into streams, threatening water quality.

At the click of a mouse, farmers can check the Runoff Risk Advisory Forecast, available online at manureadvisorysystem.wi.gov, for the latest information on spreading risks. The runoff forecast provides maps showing short-term runoff risk for daily application planning, taking into account soil saturation and temperature, weather forecast, snow and crop cover, and slope. It is updated three times daily by the National Weather Service.
