Drug abuse prevention program could lose funding
Question of the Day
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The long-running program that strives to keep young people off drugs in Brown County could be looking for another source of revenue in the near future.
The Green Bay Packers currently allow the Drug Abuse Resistance Program to park cars on game days at the Lambeau Field area lot and keep the revenue. Brown County operates the D.A.R.E. program and Sheriff John Gossage says the parking generates about $230,000 a year in revenue.
"That's pretty much our entire budget," Gossage said.
The Packers say the program can use the lot again this year, but beyond that, there's no guarantee. The team has been buying land around Lambeau for several years as it eyes a retail, entertainment and sports district that could provide non-football income.
"It depends what development takes place, and what the timing is," said Aaron Popkey, the Packers' director of public affairs.
A Kmart store on the site will close in July. The Packers have discussed several options for developing the land around the stadium, but have not made final decisions, Popkey said. The team's first development project, the Cabela's sporting goods store, opened last year.
Four full-time D.A.R.E. officers teach a 16-week curriculum in 57 schools in Brown County, according to Press-Gazette Media (http://gbpg.net/1n45QsE ).
