The first week of March definitely came in like a lion, but the stories this week were more like lambs as damage details emerged about the Mitchell Elementary fire and yielded stories about how the community could help the students. We also saw how we could help a little girl named Beatrice get a new bicycle and you told us about all of the great places to get a fish fry. Rounding out our list this week was a story about We Energies buying up property around its Oak Creek power plant.

Here’s the list of our top most read stories this week:
