STEVENS POINT - In college football last week, UW-Stevens Point fell to LaCrosse 19-16. But the Pointers were a winner off the gridiron.
It was the annual Pink Game, with the team sporting pink jerseys, which were auctioned off after the game. The Pointers raised a record $36,000 for the Susan G. Komen and Circle of Friends Foundation, serving local cancer patients and kids with cancer.
UWSP travels to Menominee to face UW-Stout on Saturday.
WAUSAU - The General Assembly takes up the budget Tuesday. Monday, some local representatives and school officials talked to the public about why they believe the budget will hurt schools.
Democratic representatives Mandy Wright and Katrina Shankland spoke in Wausau today.
Shankland, who represents Stevens Point, stated, "In the last session, Republicans took over 1.6 billion dollars from our public education. They robbed our students of $550 in aid per student. And in this budget, they only return $150. That simply is not acceptable."
