Story By Lex Gray


LAC DU FLAMBEAU - The Lac du Flambeau Tribe declared a drug-related State of Emergency on its reservation in April.

This week, tribal leaders took more severe action against people using and selling drugs on the reservation.

The tribe kicked 58 people off the reservation on Wednesday.

The tribe says everyone banished from the reservation was involved with criminal activities, drugs, or gangs.

None of the people kicked out were tribal members.

Everyone banished from the reservation had to leave within 48 hours. They're not allowed to come back in the next five years.

SUPERIOR - Investigators think they know why two skydiving planes crashed mid-air near Superior two years ago.

They blame a lack of guidance from the Federal Aviation Administration and improper training.

The crash happened in November 2013.

All nine skydivers on the two planes and one pilot jumped to safety.

The other pilot landed the damaged plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the FAA doesn't have many rules on how pilots should fly formation flights with skydivers.

Because of that, the owner of the skydiving company did not give its pilots training.

Footage from helmet cameras shows one plane coming down on the back of another, damaging the lead plane's right wing.

GREEN BAY - Lambeau field should be safe from being renamed to make money.

The president of the Green Bay Packers doesn't want to sell the naming rights to Lambeau Field.

Mark Murphy says it doesn't make sense to put a corporate tag on the name of the historic stadium.

Murphy talked to shareholders at the franchise's annual meeting on Tuesday at Lambeau.

Stadium naming rights have become a way for professional sports teams to make a lot of money.

The Packers are not hurting for cash.

They made $375-million in revenue in 2015.
