SENIOR PRANK: For a mere $2,014, Appleton West High School could be yours.

AGING WISCONSIN: The impending wave of baby boomer retirements will stall the growth of Wisconsin’s workforce over the next 25 years, hamstringing employers, cutting government revenue and limiting growth in the state’s economy, according to state economists and a new report from Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance.  
The demographic shift is far from unexpected, but officials say Wisconsin is not adequately prepared for the wide-ranging effects of what the alliance’s report calls an “impending storm.” 
Wisconsin will be particularly hard-hit since its population is older than most states - and growing more so. 
We’ve got an interactive map, too.
