RHINELANDER - Rhinelander students got to see their former prom dresses sparkle for a second time. Rhinelander High School's FBLA/DECA hosted its second Prom Expo at the Lund and Taylor Bridal Gallerie. The expo held a fashion show of new prom dresses available this season.
However, used dresses made their way down the runway too. "I knew that I wasn't going to wear it again. I'd rather have someone else get to wear it this year rather than it just sitting in my closet," said Rhinelander High School senior Carly Seidl The store started collecting resale dresses at the beginning of February. The $5 fee to submit a used dress went to the FBLA/DECA group. The owner of the dress keeps the profit when it's sold.
"It's hard to get rid of them once you buy them and you love them because you're attached to them. But you want to get a good amount of money for them. So I think it's really nice that we have two different options here," said FBLA/DECA member Lauren Rosendahl.
The event had more than ten prom vendors. Resale dresses were only available today. But new prom dresses are available at Lund and Taylor all 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.
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.
