Lund Trial Set to Begin Next Week
ANTIGO - The trial against former Antigo football coach John Lund looks like it's set for next week.

Lawyers hammered out the final pre-trial details in Langlade County Court today. That included agreeing on witnesses.

Lund faces seven drug-related felony counts stemming from last winter.

The former elementary school principal was placed on leave in December 2011. The District Attorney then charged Lund in January for selling marijuana.

He and several other coaches and teachers in both Antigo and Merrill have since resigned or were fired for their roles in the drug ring.

The Lund trial begins next Tuesday.

RHINELANDER - Chilly fall weather might make you want to curl up next to your space heater or fire place, but those heating sources bring some fire risks with them.

You should never leave space heaters unattended.

That includes when you sleep.

Pets or small children can tip over the unit and start a fire.

This is probably the first time the furnace is on since winter, so you will want to change the filter and check your chimneys, too.

"They've been sitting all summer. You want to make sure those get cleaned. We see a lot of chimney fire this time of year," says firefighter Justin Feaker.

The Rhinelander Fire Department reminds people of daylight saving time coming up on November 5th.

That is a good time to check out smoke alarms.

WHITE LAKE - More than 60 percent of students in White Lake schools come from families with financial challenges, letting those students qualify for free or reduced-cost meals at school.

But the district views that as just a number.

"We just see kids. We don't see whether they have needs or not. We just see kids, and we do the best we can to meet whatever needs they come with on a daily basis," said White Lake K-12 Principal Glenda Boldig.

Boldig's mission is helped by a motivated community volunteer, Sally Mulhollon.

"I know what it was like to be without," said Mulhollon.
