AROUND THE STATE:

BRADLEY CENTER

MILWAUKEE _ A Milwaukee arena has been reduced to rubble as the Milwaukee Bucks plan to redevelop the site. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Bucks took over control of the Bradley Center on Sept. 1. The move was part of an agreement that resulted in the construction of the $524 million Fiserv Forum arena nearby. The Bucks say developing the old center is an important part of the development potential of their new arena. SENT: 220 words.

EXCHANGE-WORK COLLEGE

MANITOWOC, Wis. _ For the students at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, work has become part of the curriculum. The Manitowoc private school’s new work college model, now in its third year, aims to help students graduate with less debt than the average Wisconsin student and give them real job experience designed to help them find careers in their chosen fields. But as college costs rise and students and families worry about student loan debt, higher education leaders are looking for ways to make college more affordable. By Alisa M. Schafer, Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1224 words, photos.

EXCHANGE-VET RESTORES CAR

TOWN OF TEXAS, Wis. _ The first time Dale Lindwall saw the car, it was sitting atop a rock pile on a farm east of Merrill. He thought, “I can do something with this.” It was 2013, and he was looking at a four-door, six-cylinder 1948 P15 Plymouth Deluxe sedan. All of the windows were gone, the Wausau Daily Herald reported. Time and weather had worn away the paint, leaving patches of nearly bare metal on the doors, fenders, hood and trunk. The upholstery was ragged and rotting. Gunshots left a hole in the trunk and rear driver’s side fender. Rust had eaten away most of the floor. By Keith Uhlig, Wausau Daily Herald.

The game also likely marks the last at home for New York coach Todd Bowles, who is expected to be fired by the Jets (4-10) at the end of the season.
