Northwoods school hosts anti-bullying programs
MINOCQUA - Schools across the country struggle with bullying.

Northwoods schools like MHLT hope students learned from a traveling theatre group today.

All of their students attended a short play by the group, CLIMB Theatre.

Bullying has been a problem for the school.

"We looked at our discipline data and a lot of our referrals were bullying based. It was something that was happening here at our school so we wanted to do what we can to make an impact and change and make it a safer and better place for everyone," said MHLT's Principal, Brent Johnson.

The presentation lines up with October's National Bullying Prevention month.

But actors want their message to continue throughout the year.

"We really hope that this brings kids to be more aware that bullying is happening. Just because it's not happening to you, you are still witnessing it. I hope that these children cannot be bystanders and stand up for other people. I think that's one of the most important messages," said Juliana Lai.

The school's principal wants the message to make a big impression.

"We wanted to make an impact and really make a stand against bullying. We decided to get shirts for every kid in the whole building and the staff, so it's a real visual theme. We want up standers, standing up for each other and making this something that doesn't happen in our building," said Johnson.

CLIMB theatre performed three different plays to students today.

MADISON, WIS. (AP) - Madison officials say Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violated city policy by detaining at least six immigrants without letting police know ahead of time.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval says the department has a working relationship with ICE, but the federal agency did not follow protocol. Koval says ICE has agreed to call the assistant police chief before making arrests in Madison. This time the agency called the Dane County Communications Center.

Koval says the arrests were made at separate workplaces and are not considered to be part of a raid. He says the community is in "hyper-warp distress mode."

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says ICE told city officials the people arrested are believed to have committed serious crimes, but he does not know the specifics of the investigation.

WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.

This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.

Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,

"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."

Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.

"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.

Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
