Second School Board Member Censured

 The Kewaskum School Board voted 5-2 to censure Board Member Timothy Ramthun at Monday night’s board meeting for violating two board policies.
A censure is a written statement of the board’s disapproval of a board member’s behavior, according to Tony Renning, the school district’s attorney.
The board spent about an hour discussing whether Ramthun had broken policies regarding public expression of board members and board-staff communications.

County Board Supports Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial
– Kewaskum Remembers, Inc. Has Been Organizing Memorial Since 2014

The Washington County Board unanimously passed a resolution to designate the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial as the official memorial in Washington County to commemorate the terrorist attacks. The resolution asks the State of Wisconsin to also make the monument the official memorial of the state.
Supervisor William Symicek of Kewaskum represents the memorial and moved to approve the resolution.
The board heard a presentation from members of Kewaskum Remembers, Inc., who have been planning the memorial designed around a piece of I-beam from the north twin tower. Kewaskum Remembers was organized by Gordon Haberman, who lost his daughter Andrea in the twin tower attacks. The steel arrived in Kewaskum in 2014.
