Story By Associated Press


VILLAGE OF HOWARD - Brown County sheriff's authorities have identified the driver who was killed and the passenger who was injured when a box truck exploded in the Green Bay area.

Fifty-nine-year-old Gerald Throw, of the Oconto County community of Sobieski, died in the accident. Twenty-nine-year-old Jose Perez, of Green Bay, is hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The two were turning into a driveway in the village of Howard Thursday afternoon when the truck's load shifted forward and pierced the compressed natural gas fuel system, causing it to explode. The truck is leased to Ace Manufacturing, which is located near the scene of the accident.

RHINELANDER - Students who graduate from Nicolet College can now easily transfer to a new four year school. Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin will now accept students who transfer with an associate's degree from Nicolet College. Nicolet wants its students to easily transfer to four year schools.

Northland College is now recognizing credits that Nicolet gives for a handful of their degrees including Business Management, Graphic Design, Early Childhood Education, and University Transfer Liberal Arts Associate of Science-Natural Resources Emphasis programs. Staff members at Nicolet say this deal is very clear-cut for students looking to pursue these degrees.

"We have put a lot of institutional resources into building these articulation agreements," said the Dean of University Transfer/Liberal Arts program Emily Stuckenbruck. "So it's very clear to students from the get-go; if you take this list of courses, or you have selected from these courses available, they will transfer to these institutions."

Nicolet has deals similar to this at more than 75 schools across the country. Leaders say it helps students save money.
