MEDFORD - Last week a LaCrosse Anchorwoman was bullied for being overweight. That sparked students at Medford high school to take a stand.
Wednesday, over 140 students and faculty wore blaze orange to school as a protest called UNITE against bullying. October is Anti-Bullying Month.
The students were already preparing to wear blaze orange for tomorrow night's football game against Rhinelander. That was to support the team. But now it's about more than just a football game.
"We hope everyone will wear blaze orange to support anti-bullying, " said Medford senior Cole Quednow. "Rhinelander fans, Medford fans, it doesn't matter. Everyone who wears blaze orange to the football game, you will receive free hot chocolate."
Medford hosts Rhinelander on Friday night. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
TOMAHAWK - Workers at Daigle Brothers in Tomahawk can build almost anything out of steel. Most of their business is creating custom parts and putting up buildings, but more recently, they've been building a new invention.
Daigle Brothers began in 1987. Back then they did a lot of construction related jobs like painting. Later they focused on steel construction.
"In the 90's we did a lot of school buildings, there was a lot of schools being built, so we supplied structural steel for these building projects... Currently our biggest markets are universities, hospitals, office buildings... we do a lot of fire stations," said Steve Daigle President of Daigle Brothers Inc.
