MEDFORD - A threat at Medford Area Senior High Thursday sent the district and law enforcement into high alert.
Tonight we can tell you police have made an arrest.
Police haven't told us yet what the threat was, but Medford high school staff found it in a girls bathroom at the end of the school day Thursday.
Police and sheriff's deputies searched every student entering the school Friday. The district gave parents the option to keep their kids home. Only about a quarter of enrolled students were there Friday.
District Administratior Pat Sullivan said police made an arrest, and the district and police no longer feel student safety is in question.
He looks forward to all Medford students returning to school Monday and getting things back to normal.
'Wellness Court' Offers Alternate Sentence for Alcohol & Drug Offenders
LAC DU FLAMBEAU - In Vilas County the courts have a new option for treating drug and alcohol offenders, instead of putting them behind bars.
Today the new Wellness Court was named in Lac du Flambeau. Circuit court judge Neal Neilsen and Tribal Court Judge Gary Smith will work together to help those involved with drugs and alcohol get the treatment they need.
"A traditional court would, more than likely sentence the person to jail or prison, and we've seen studies where that just doesn't work anymore. We need to get creative," said Lac du Flambeau Tribal Chief Judge, Gary Smith.
