BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- More than half of the employees at the Air National Guard Base in Battle Creek are on furlough.  They're among the victims of a partial government shutdown that kicked in Tuesday.

The U.S. Senate wrapped up for the day Tuesday without a deal with the House on extending funding to get the government running again.   Across the nation, more than 800-thousand federal employees were not at work Wednesday.
