Palisades press box entered unlawfully, note with racial slur found

On Wednesday, Aug. 10, a Palisades School District maintenance worker discovered that the press box in the stadium was broken into and that a note that was written contained a racial slur. The press box was locked and it is believed someone manipulated the lock to enter the press box.
