Three Lakes High School holds first Pink DaySubmitted: 10/30/2013
Story By Melissa Constanzer


THREE LAKES - Grey and dreary skies couldn't keep Three Lakes High School students inside today. Students walked around the track wearing their best pink outfit.

It was all part of the school's first Pink Day. It raised money for Pink Ribbon Riders. It's a local charity supporting both women and men with breast cancer.

"Since it was just October, we wanted to show our support somehow because we do have kids in the school who either have moms, or kids know somebody in the school, that have breast cancer," says Isabella Devereaux, FBLA Vice President.

Pink Day was put on by the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club. But almost all the school took part in it.

"It was really good," said Peyton Radaj, FBLA Secretary.
"Yeah, I think it went really well," says Isabella Devereaux.
"It was good," said Abby Zielke, FBLA President.
"Way better than we thought," said Devereaux.
"Its cool going to a small school because everyone rallies together like that, like....we're all there for each other. Yeah!" said Radaj and Devereaux.

The day also included a raffle. All the money raised goes to the Pink Ribbon Riders. The school raised around $900.

WESTON - The state of Wisconsin no longer bans the possession or purchase of switchblades.

Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) signed a bill lifting the decades-long ban on switchblades on Saturday at a 
National Rifle Association and Wisconsin FORCE annual convention in Weston.

Walker said this gives people another option for protection, and it also can help first responders at accidents.

"Say at a crash to take someone out of a harness or seat belt or other things like that," Walker said. "And again, the bottom line is as it is with firearms, the people you are worried about are already possessing these, law abiding citizens should at least have access to that in the state of Wisconsin."

This new law applies only to people who are legally eligible to own a gun.

"The same provisions apply," Walker said. "If someone's prohibited from possessing a firearm, say they're a felon, they are not able to possess a firearm the same way with a knife under the senses. But with a law abiding citizen, it just makes sense that if they're following the law, they're looking to protect themselves and their families, this gives them one more tool to do that as well as first responders."

Under this new bill people can also carry concealed knives of any length without a concealed carry license.

FORCE, or Firearm Owners, Ranges, Clubs and Educators, is an association chartered by the NRA.
