BELOIT— Beloit police are continuing their investigation two separate incidents early Monday.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Georgia Kestol-Bauer wants to share her historic family heirloom of sorts with the community at large.

The final decision on the fate of Chief Norm Jacobs and Deputy Chief Tom Dunkin, who were placed on administrative leave June 16 by City Manager Lori Curtis Luther, lies with the six-member Beloit Police and Fire Commission.
