(7-10-14) The middle school in Pilger that was damaged by a deadly tornado last month will be torn down Friday. The historic building was destroyed when 200 mile an hour winds tore through the town on June 16th. The Wisner-Pilger school board decided that the middle school building could not be salvaged. Three portable classrooms for students and staff will be located near the elementary school in Wisner.
