Local law enforcement will educate and not issue citations for capacity order violations

FOX VALLEY, Wis. (WBAY) -The new state order limiting public gatherings to no more than 25% of a room or building’s total occupancy goes into effect at 8 a.m. Thursday morning. Like the safer at home order and the state’s mask mandate, this move is raising questions about enforcement.

The new capacity order doesn’t go into effect until Thursday, but the idea of it being enforced is already drawing criticism from some business owners. In a now deleted Facebook post, the owner of a Fond du Lac Bar said he’s keeping his tavern open and doing what he wants to do — even calling out the Sheriff. The Sheriff tells me the owner apologized to him and said his frustration is with the governor, not local authorities.

Online learning emerges as a key issue from Tennessee House hearings

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — School online learning emerged as one of the key issues during ten-hour hearings by Tennessee state lawmakers that wrapped up Wednesday.

“We are going to have our hands full and we all need to be on the same page,” said House Education Committee Chair Mark White.

It was a statement about the delicate nature of Tennessee K-12 education as schools re-open in the age of COVID-19.

Online learning is key because it’s estimated that half of the state’s million students are presently doing it.

One figure drawing attention during the hearing this week was underachieving students falling potentially two grades behind since the start of the pandemic.

Issues with online learning often are blamed as students, teachers, and parents are learning about virtual education.

Students, parents and teachers rally in favor of in-person learning (Reese Gorman, 09/21/2020)




During demonstrations and public comments Monday evening, the continuing divide in the Norman Public Schools community was bridged by one issue: the desire for more consistency.

In the midst of two demonstrations and a lengthy public comment section at Monday evening’s Board of Education meeting, community members of all opinions expressed frustration with the district’s current path. Some asked for schools to reopen and students to be brought back to in-person learning, while others advocated for more safety measures and further reconsideration of the current plan, but people on both sides asked that the district commit to more stability.

“We need consistency — our children need to know what’s going to happen for the next several weeks,” said Jennifer Hendrix, a NPS parent, during the public comment section. “As soon as
