Chippewa Valley This Week
Black River Falls police chief, Kelly Bakken, says her qualifications to be Altoona's next police chief extend beyond heading the BRF police department the past 18 months. Meanwhile, on a below-zero night, January 31st, 261 people turned out at Micon Cinema in Chippewa Falls for a showing of the movie, "Suicide: The Ripple Effect." The event was put on by Shaun & Tim Curtis, in memory of their 19 year old son, Dominic Curtis, who took his own life this past November 25th. Shaun tells us what a great young man he was, and about their efforts to launch a foundation in his memory. In a related conversation, we talk to Barb Habben, Education/Program Coordinator with NAMI(National Alliance on Mental Illness) Chippewa Valley. Finally, we hear a portion of Gov. Evers meeting the Chippewa Valley media during a stop in Eau Claire, the day after his State of the State Address.
