GREEN BAY - M.D.
Two Pierce County prep football teams can clinch and or put their playoff hopes in a good place with wins this evening. Prescott has its Homecoming game at Laney Field against Baldwin-Woodville. And what better way to celebrate a Homecoming than with clinching a playoff berth which the Cardinals can do with a win. But just like with Ellsworth a week ago, PHS cannot let Baldwin-Woodville's 1-5 record fool them into complacency, as if all the Homecoming distractions were bad enough. The Blackhawks once again endured another close defeat last Friday.

GREEN BAY - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says it knows what caused the Leo Frigo Bridge in Green Bay to sag last week. An investigation found pilings on the bridge buckled due to corrosion. A spokesman for the department says a combination of soil composition to the rise and fall of the water table caused the corrosion. Further inspections determined additional pilings could be affected by corrosion, but the bridge itself is “sound” and in no danger of collapsing. An investigation is expected to wrap-up next week.

MINNEAPOLIS - The new Minnesota Vikings stadium use agreement will require the team's owners to come up with about $100-million of their own money.
