Today is April 18, 2013.
* UpWis: "Should elected county officials be contributing part of their salaries to the Wisconsin Retirement System that eventually will provide them a pension? [...] One Wisconsin court's answer is: yes, elected officials can be made to contribute. "
* MadCom: "According to zoning administrator Matt Tucker, there are 39 beekeeping licenses out in Madison, and only about three or four have had complaints lodged against them since the ordinance passed in February 2012. This is comparable to complaints about Madison's urban chicken raisers, Tucker said."
* BH: "UW educational policy studies and sociology professor Sara Goldrick-Rab was part of a Senate committee panel on college affordability. She said public and private colleges are currently engaged in an 'arms race' for higher tuition, which colleges think equates to higher quality. She recommended measures such as strengthening grants and targeting them to the neediest, reducing loans and increasing higher education funding as ways of making colleges more affordable and diverse."
