Chatty Belle - The World's Largest Talking Cow

Five Marshfield School District teachers got bad news this week.

According to the Marshfield NewsHerald, the teachers were notified their positions would be cut due to a budget shortfall.

The layoffs were necessary to balance the district's 2010-11 school budget, which has a $1.4 million shortfall. The district's five-year, $13.5 million override referendum that passed in 2008 isn't enough to cover the deficit.

School officials point to rising health care costs and declining enrollments for the shortfall.
