A new report shows professors in the U-W System are earning less than they could elsewhere, despite three years of raised. The Gannett Wisconsin Media reports full-time professors at UW-Madison earned an average salary of just over 106-thousand dollars, but the median salary at 11 similar schools averaged over 134-thousand dollars. While there is a difference in pay and the legislature continues work to close that gap, some professors say they are willing to accept lower salaries because of job satisfaction. However, a UW-System spokesman says the lower salary gap forces professors to leave for other universities and loses out on future applicants.

Pollution has forced state officials to add a chain of Dane County lakes to a list of "impaired waters". The four Yahara lakes - Mendota, Monona, Waubesa and Kegonsa - landed on the list because of nutrient pollution from nearby farms. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources say the pollutants caused excessive algae and weed growth in and around the lakes. D-N-R says waterways added to the impaired list do not meet water quality standards and may not support fishing, swimming or other recreations. There are over 700 rivers, lakes and streams on the list.

Two drivers were killed in a northwestern Wisconsin crash Friday evening. The Dunn County Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Kimberley Kresen of Eau Claire and 62-year-old Joyce Dawson of Rock Falls were pronounced dead on the scene of the head-on crash, near the village of Rock Falls. Authorities are still investigating the crash, but say it appears one of the victims apparently crossed the center line. The two drivers were the only occupants in their vehicles.
