In brief Republican wins special election Associated Press Id B kvaJuW I 8 ! F 1 f k - i ft t " j" it ' A Republican attorney from West Bend says his support for family values and tougher welfare rules helped him easily capture a special election for an Assembly seat. Glenn Grothman won the contest Tuesday, collecting 3,410 votes, or 79 percent. He defeated an independent and a Libertarian candidate to win the 59th Assembly seat, which covers parts of Washington, Sheboygan and Ozaukee counties. There were no Democrats in the race. The race cuts the Democratic majority in the Assembly to 52-47. The election was held to replace former Rep. Mary Panzer, R-West Bend, who won a special election to the Senate in September. Teen gets maximum sentence in slaying MILWAUKEE (AP)-A 15-year-old boy who pleaded guilty to first-degree intentional homicide but insists he is not a killer faces nine years in state custody for the slaying of a Milwaukee woman outside a restaurant. The boy admitted he supplied and loaded the sawed-off shotgun used Nov. 16 to kill Christine Schweiger, 35, Schweiger, a county employee, was slain in front of her 10-year-old daughter. She had two other children, ages 8 and 15. A 16-year-old boy charged as the shooter is fighting an effort by the district attorney's office to transfer his case to adult court. He allegedly told police he shot Schweiger because she "had an attitude." Madison teachers threaten slowdown MADISON, Wis. (AP)-Teachers threaten to resume a work slowdown if the Madison school board challenges a court ruling against limits on salary increases. The Circuit Court ruling said a new state law limiting contract increases does not apply to Madison Teachers Inc. because the union's membership includes employees who are not teachers. A union committee recommended Tuesday that the union authorize teachers to reduce extracurricular work if the board files an appeal. The state law is designed to ease property taxes by limiting school district spending. Because of the court opinion, many districts throughout Wisconsin may be exempt from the salary limits if their local union's do not exclusively represent teachers. Investors question residency rule MADISON, Wis. (AP)-Two Alabama investors in Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha are challenging a Wisconsin rule requiring that 51 percent of a dog track be owned by state residents. Harold Ripps and Herbert Meisler asked the state Gaming Commission to declare the park's parent company a Wisconsin resident. Ripps and Meisler together own 37.5 percent of Dairyland Greyhound Park Inc. stock. The pair asked the commission to make the declaration because they want to clarify the law before Dairyland next year seeks to renew its state license to own a racetrack in Wisconsin, said Michael Hall-man, an aide to Ripps. 2 die in apparent murder-suicide WAUPACA.
