  • The U.S. Coast Guard has tested Winona State University's new floating classroom.
    The boat passed the test at the SkipperLiner Marine in La Crosse Thursday. The Coast Guard placed 450-pound barrels of water throughout the vessel to simulate passengers.
    The unconventional classroom was inspired by Dr. Calvin Fremling, a Winona State professor, scientist and river enthusiast. Fremling died in 2010. The boat is named in his honor, reflecting his curiosity of the Mississippi River with its interactive classroom.
    WXOW-TV says the Cal Fremling will be christened on June 6 at Levee Park in Winona, Minnesota.
