   Waunakee Tribune (Newspaper) - August 20, 1992, Waunakee, Wisconsin                                 State Historical Society 816 Stalte St MADISON Vfl 53706  "The Only Waunakee in the World"  Waunakee, Dane County, Wtsccmsin  20  August^X 1992 Volume 77 No. 13 :  New year, new  add up to excitement for new principal  By Art Drake  When kids enter the middle school stage, they keep their elders on their toes, to say the least  That accounts for many a parental headache, but for Shelley Joan Weiss it's just another of the wonders of the early adolescent -transescent, in education jargon.  Weiss is starting her first year as middle school principal in Waunakee's spanking new middle school building. It all adds up to exdting times for Weiss.  "I love this age group,** she dedared. "This is an exdting time of their lives. They always chal  lenge you. They keep you on your toes. They make sure you know what you're doing."  When children reach that jumpy middle school age, they often leave their parents at a loss. Weiss said parents see their . children spurt to new height and forget that this gangling kid is still a child. .  That's easy to do," Weiss said. "But they're still children. They need hugs, and they still need adults.''  As principal, Weiss hopes to draw tiiose adults - parents and others as well - into her school and into the lives of her students. She wants parents and other  adults as volunteers and guest speakers. Whatever the adult's talents, diere is à role for ihem to help make die sdiool work, Weiss said.  Another of Weiss' goals is to help pamts of middle schoolers develop their interest in the school day, to look past the  "nuthih' " that the tadtum kids daim to have spent their day doing.  It's harder for parents to take an interest in their middle sdiool-er's education, and many parents ease up on their involvement at Ms time of th^ duldren's lives. It's the wrong time to ease up.

O'MaUey said she wants to spread representation throughout the village.  Marx, who works for the state Department of Revenue, sensed five years on the village board, the last three as president, until he resigned in June 1990, saying he wanted to devote more time to his family and his job.  U.S. Rep. Scott Klug (R-Madison) was ike speaker ^at the Aug. 13 meeting of the Waiunakee Rotary Qub.  Klug said tot Wisconsin is an "island of prosperity" in a sagging national economy and he attributed that partly to the foct that the state has received very few federal dollars in previous years.  The traditional gi^pe over to years has been tot Msoonsin has not received its proportional share, of federal dollars, Klug observed. Nowadays, with federal spending cuts, especially in defense, ofter stales tot have prospered from t^ are turn taking an eoonontfci^ witfi sucb  measiu'es as the closing of military bases.  Klug said $50 biUion to $100 billion has b^ pulled out of to defense d^artmeat, and more cuts will follow.  Another reason Wisconsin's economy is in relatively good shape is the soiundn^ss of our finandal in^tutions, Klug said. In to 1980i^ lots of dollars were invested in ^mmerdal real estate, eifiedt% in sai^gs and loa^ In to soudi i^ soutitiwest As Aose iilyji^tmeiits went sour and saving and l<^ns went dowi^ eoomm^ in those stales  In order to{ get the nation's economy mov^g, Klug bdieves capital gains tax cuts are necessary. Ilhis is not a "sweetheart deM for Wall Street" as it has been! portrayed, Klug said. Rather, |he explained, it would have a Wiefidal impact on farmers and small business people. 1  IGtig also sm to nation must deal iv^ its dimcit and spending, as those taioe itmtusy out of to econbmy that could better be used ^dsewhm Klug said he has oudined $12 i^mon in ^lending cuts»;  Kl^ also di^ssed his efforts  continues  Wkunakee's populaticm cmitki-« uestodimbup,upandawa3K t That's to official word homt the state Department ol^ Administration which has; released its latest population esli-; mates for munidpalities as o£ last* January. •  The 1990 census found 5,8971 people in Wiunakeeir but to staiel says that, two year's later, to* population stands at 6,363, an: maease of466 f»r 7.9 percent ;  The Village of Dane has frfdEed* up 21 le^dents since 1990, grow-*; ing from 621 to 642, for an« increase (tf 3.4 percent •  The population dianges ibundr in otor area munidpalities were: t •Town of Westport - increase; from 2,732 to 2,875, for an; increase^of 5.2 percent ;  •Town of ^^enna - increased*  •  (POPULAnON onUlBacd OB 3K  School district  census count i is up by 113 I  The Waunakee Community; School District has 113 more people in to 0-19 a^ ^Éidf»^ ton it had last year, accdvâng to^ to sdiool district's annual cen> sus.
