Authorities cite school-board member for underage-drinking party

A school board member in Pulaski has been ticketed for hosting an underage drinking party at her home.

Police said they were called to the home of Christine Vandenhouten in Hobart early on Sunday, May 12. She, her teenage son, and nine other Pulaski High students received citations.

Acting district administrator Bec Kane tells WLUK TV in Green Bay that some students who were not cited admitted to school officials that they were at the party. She said school athletes and club members who went have been penalized.

Kane also said the school district cannot impose its own discipline on Vandenhouten, since only the voters can decide the fate of school board members. She's in her first three-year term, which expires next spring. Vandenhouten has not commented.
