Relatively quiet night in boom town

CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (AP) - If the number of phone calls to police is any indication, it was a relatively quiet night in the eastern Wisconsin community of Clintonville, where intermittent booms have awakened residents for several nights.

Police received several calls early Thursday morning, compared to more than 100 overnight Sunday to Monday when the racket began.

About 300 people attended a public meeting Wednesday night in a local high school auditorium to get an update on the situation. City Administrator Lisa Kuss assured residents that officials are doing everything they can to determine the source of the booming.

Officials have checked water, sewer and gas lines, contacted the military about any exercises in the area, reviewed permits for mining explosives, in addition to testing methane levels at the local landfill.
