Several local high school football coaches will be honored Saturday when the 33rd enshrinement into the Wisconsin Football Coaches' Association Hall of Fame takes place in Madison.

David Bielmeier and Jim Steinke from Edgar High School, John Budnik from Mosinee High School and Len Luedtke from Marshfield High School will be among the high school and college football coaches will be inducted.

In addition, Wayne Steffenhagen, former head football coach for D.C. Everest High School, will be one of two former high school football coaches to be honored because they are entering the National High School Athletic Coaches' Association Hall of Fame.

Parents and caregivers are invited to bring children to The Center for the Visual Arts, 427 N. Fourth St., Wausau, for a spring break event that combines Spanish and art.

Local author and artist Maria Segura will be at The Center for the Visual Arts from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, March 29, to read her book "Don't be Scared Little Crocodile/No tengas Miedo Cocodrilito."

After the reading, Segura will sign copies of her book and lead children in a crocodile-inspired art project.

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest soil scientist Dave Hoppe of Rhinelander has been chosen as the Field Soil Scientist of the Year. This national Forest Service "2012 Rise to the Future" award recognizes Hoppe for his two decades of outstanding work toward field soil science.

He will travel to Washington, D.C., in May to receive the award.

Dr. Todd Hostetler, an allergist at ENT Associates, had his nut allergy research featured in the December 2012 edition of Parents Magazine, among other outlets, after it first was published his research in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and presented to colleagues in a national meeting.

Hostetler asked more than 1,100 adults and children at a children's museum to identify samples of various nuts as they appear on grocery store shelves and in food. Participants were correct less than half the time, whether or not they or their children were allergic.

Approximately 1 percent of the U.S. population has a nut allergy, and nuts are the leading cause of food-allergy related deaths. Avoiding the relevant nut is only way to prevent potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.
