A controversy that's making headlines around the state will be explored today when "Teen Connection: Indian Mascots" airs statewide on public television. The live, call-in program will originate from the studios of WPNE, Channel 38, at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The center of discussion will be a new law that outlaws race-based nicknames, logos and mascots in Wisconsin schools. Enforcement is based on complaints.
