PHS gridders snap 11-game losing streak with 27-13 win over Rhinelander

After going 0-9 a season ago, the Prescott High School Football Team made sure that record wouldn't be repeated this fall as the Cardinals downed Rhinelander 27-13 Friday evening at Laney Field.

Sophomore fullback Joe Schulte rushed for 173 yards on 29 carries and scored three touchdowns, two of them on key drives in the fourth quarter. PHS also had a critical score in the second quarter which put them ahead at halftime 14-13 when quarterback Jonah Anderson threw a 17-yard strike to Carson Stenroos on a broken play.

Prescott outgained the Hodags 294 yards to 75 in rushing in turning around what was a 27-8 loss to Rhinelander last year up north. The Cardinal defense stiffened int he second half to hold Rhinelander scoreless.

Prescott will look to go 2-0 for the first time since 2014 when they travel to Three Lakes next Thursday, Aug. 24 to take on Three Lakes/Phelps. The Bluejays lost their season opener Friday 34-6 to Augusta. Prescott's win also the first for new head coach Kevin Haglund.

Rep. Ron Kind Introduces legislation to protect neotropical migratory birds

LA CROSSE – U.S. Rep. Ron Kind of the Third District in Wisconsin recently introduced the Migratory Birds of the Americas Conservation Act, which funds habitat protection, education, researching, and monitoring to provide long-term protection of neotropical migratory birds.

“Growing up on the Mississippi River in La Crosse, I appreciate the importance of preserving natural habitat for our migratory birds. Visitors from across the world visit western Wisconsin every year to witness the impressive migration and contribute to the local economy. Given the threat of habitat loss, pollution, and invasive species, we must do everything we can to protect migratory birds for the next generation of Americans,” said Rep. Kind.

The Migratory Birds of the Americas Conservation Act has not been re-authorized since 2010. This legislation would provide much needed grants to countries in Latin America and the Caribbean for the conservation of these birds through a competitive matching grants program to leverage funding from a range of non-governmental sources. Up to one-quarter of the annual grants can be used for projects in the United States.
