Wausau West hosts 6-team football scrimmage
WAUSAU - Area high school football teams are eagerly getting ready for next week's season opener.

Players have been practicing hitting, and tackling with their teammates.

On Friday, several area schools held scrimmages.

Wausau West hosted a 6-team scrimmage. Rhinelander, Merrill, Antigo, Lakeland, and Wausau East all took part.

It gives the kids a chance to face an opponent. It also gives the coaches some insight on their team.


"You want to learn from these," says Wausau West head coach Kevin Grundy. "You want to learn from the positives. You also want to take the mistakes and turn them into positives."

"We learned what hitting is actually like," Lakeland senior Tom Bruckner adds. "We got physical. We made mistakes, but we're actually getting better."

Northland Pines also hosted a scrimmage with Crandon and Phillips.

Most teams open next Friday. Wausau West begins at Marshfield. They look to improve from last year's two-win season.

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.
