Episode Description
Here and Now, Janesville GM Plant Shutdown, The car industry is notoriously cyclical, at the mercy of economic trends. Oil hit a record high today which probably won?t motivate anyone to shop for a Hummer. But the 2, 600 employees at the General Motors Janesville plant have been through a high and low to beat them all this year. 'Here and Now' Producer Art Hackett says the workers started the year at the center of national attention. Five months later, they were headed down the road to a dead-end. Janesville GM Plant Shutdown, We are joined now in Janesville by someone who has worked at the GM plant for more than two decades. New UW-Madison Chancellor, Carolyn Biddy Martin comes to the UW-Madison this fall as its new Chancellor. A native of Virginia, Martin received her PhD at UW-Madison in German Literature. We asked some of you what advice you had for the incoming Chancellor. Annette Ziegler reprimand, The Wisconsin Supreme Court gave Justice Annette Ziegler a public reprimand for misconduct because as a circuit court judge, she presided over cases involving the bank of which her husband was director, an unprecedented sanction. And yet according to the man who filed the complaint against Justice Ziegler, it was a mere slap on the wrist. Biddy, Meet Bucky, Incoming UW-Madison Chancellor Carolyn Martin may have earned her PhD at UW-Madison, but that was years ago and a mere stop along the way for the native Virginian. Our singing commentator Peter Leidy says half the battle of living in Wisconsin is figuring out how to pronounce things. He's worked out a little cheat sheet for the Chancellor.
