- The Forest County Potawatomi Community used to give their employees the day off for Native American Day. CRANDON Now, they have turned it into a celebration of cultural education. They put together presentations, traditional dances, with a focus on awareness at their Crandon reservation on Wednesday. "It's important to understand our indigenous people who lived here, grew up here, and actually founded the land," said Family Services Division Director Abby Lukowski. The Woodland Sky Native American Dance Group performed for the crowd. They had two ninety minute shows. Woodland Sky uses dance as way to teach others. "When we started this group, it was a way of sharing awareness with people of who we are and to tell them our culture is very much still alive," said Woodland Sky member Ronnie Preston. One important thing for the group is to break stereotypes. They had plenty of opportunities to reach about 300 people watching. "These aren't our costumes, these are our native regalia," said Preston. "We are not dressing up to be native people. We are native people everyday of our lives." The Forest County Potawatomi hope the presentations and performances will not only unite their employees, but everyone around them. "We are all people and when we work together as a team we can build a strong community," said Lukowski

But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption. "Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
