    GALENA–Negotiations between the Galena School Board and the Galena Federation of Teachers are at a bit of a standstill. 

    Although the contract between the board and teachers’ union was on the Tuesday, Nov. 17 agenda for possible approval, board president Chuck Korte announced in open session that the teachers union opted not to ratify the tentative agreement during a meeting Friday, Nov. 13.
