EAGLE RIVER - A Northwoods school district could get student athletes and their parents more involved in the decision making process.
Northland Pine's school board discussed an Athletic Oversight Committee last week. The idea was pitched by a parent whose son was cut from the varsity hockey team last fall.
Northland Pines Athletic Director Brian Margelofsky has wanted a panel since last November. He's in favor of parents having more of a say with how the athletic program is run.
"We are a public facility. Tax payers help us function and run our facility. Their kids are going here. It might be time for them to have a voice on some of the structure, of our organizational things."
The board will meet again later this month to talk about the committee more.
CAMBRIA - Didion Milling Company in Cambria received 19 safety citations for its explosion in May. The fatal plant explosion killed five workers and injured 12 others. Didion plans on challenging some of the citations. The Occupational Safety and Heath Administration issued the citations for safety violations and proposed a $1.8 million dollar fine. The company's appeal could take up to a year.
MANITOWISH WATERS - After Terry Theisen got her middle school math class started with some computer coding, she needed to admit something about her level of programming expertise.
"None, absolutely none," Theisen said with a smile.
The North Lakeland School teacher did some basic coding when she was young, telling her students she used actual punch cards. Friday, was very different. Theisen's entire class learned on the go as they clicked and clacked on laptops as part of a worldwide event from their Manitowish Waters school.
