Morning Juice: In Economic Freeze, Cold Cases Get Colder; Teacher Paychecks Get Slimmer

Tuesday's local headlines:

  • Art and physical education teachers at roughly a dozen Broward County schools have been asked to accept a paycheck half the size of the one they get now. It's the latest, desperate effort by school administrators to balance the district's budget. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Another casualty of the economy: cold cases. With fewer resources to go around, local police have had to pull detectives from major unsolved criminal investigations. [Palm Beach Post]
  • A 37-year-old woman running from an apartment in Plantation was gunned down in the street Monday night. Police haven't found her killer. [CBS4]
  • As state legislators work late to hammer out a budget, state workers are happy to have made a narrow escape from an across-the-board 3-percent pay cut. [Miami Herald]
  • Cheryl Arthur, the Hollywood woman charged in the suffocation death of her 3-year-old daughter, allegedly told detectives that she did it because she was broke, depressed, overwhelmed and didn't want her child to turn out like her. [Sun-Sentinel]
