A two-week training exercise called Northern Lightning is bringing together branches of the military throughout the region, and the country, to practice air and ground operations.
The exercise, which occurs twice a year, takes place from May 6 through May 17 from Volk Field Air National Guard Base in Camp Douglas.Isabel Lawrence photo
“Northern Lightning is a National Guard sponsored exercise that brings together air and ground training crews in central Wisconsin and across the region, really all the way up into Duluth, Minnesota as well,” said Colonel Bart Van Roo, Northern Lightning Exercise Director for Wisconsin. “We’re training aircrews for tactical scenarios kind of worldwide.”
Van Roo said the exercise is meant to be catered to what certain units need. For instance, he said if a unit is comprised of mostly new members, they can focus more on training them with the help of experienced people.
“We’re kind of prepared for the defense of the United States in any form or fashion, so the exercise allows commanders to tailor their training based on what the unit needs in the short and kind of long term future, so we’re ready for kind of all scenarios,” he said.
Isabel Lawrence Pardeeville
The Pardeeville Area School District superintendent said he was not aware of the ongoing investigation into a former local bus driver who was charged with two counts of sexual contact with a child under age 13.
Gus Knitt, superintendent of schools for the Pardeeville Area School District, said after police spoke with the elementary school principal and counselor after the 2017 allegations made against former bus driver Gary Edwards, the district had not heard anything else about an investigation or charges.
“We had not heard anything more about what was going on until again, we saw the paper this morning, or I got the email yesterday afternoon, that’s the first that any of us were aware that the investigation had taken obviously a very different turn, and that was the first we were aware of,” Knitt said.
The first allegation was in May of 2017 when according to court documents, a student said Edwards touched her buttocks and tried to give her candy. Knitt said that the elementary school principal received a complaint about the incident, and the complaint was passed along to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.
“I think in essence they told us there was no basis for the complaint in 2017,” Knitt said of law enforcement. “So, we looked and said okay fine, there’s nothing there. We reported it, we did what we needed to do, so nothing transpired.”
NBC15 reached out to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office to find out more about the 2017 complaint and was told no one was available Tuesday evening to discuss the incidents.

An open house in Sun Prairie Thursday evening allowed community members to meet with the group tasked with creating a potential development plan for the area impacted by the July explosion.
The Lakota Group out of Chicago is starting the process of developing a guiding plan for what could potentially be built and developed in the explosion area in downtown Sun Prairie.
Marisa Schulz, Vice President of the Lakota Group, said the firm has done a lot of work in the Milwaukee and Madison area before.
“We were really impressed with the way the community has come together, as a whole, to help those that were impacted by the blast,” Schulz said.
On Thursday, the group spent the day meeting with community members to hear what they wanted to see for the area.
“We are just kicking off the project right now, and we’re talking to as many people as we can,” Schulz said. “Different stakeholder groups, community organizations, property owners, developers, all kind of coming together to help us create this vision for the site as a community.”
