Pierce County Sheriff's Office will participate in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign from Aug. 16 to Sept. 2. The goal is to reduce the number of annual traffic deaths on Wisconsin roadways.

Following the speed limit, fastening safety belts and driving sober are all ways to reduce traffic deaths, the Sheriff's office said.

Things were looking good from the get-go for Ellsworth against Osceola in the second round of the Division 2 Section 1 playoff as the Panthers tacked on three runs in the top of the first inning. "We got off to a rolling start," said Ellsworth head coach Ryan Casper. "Then, we let in five." The Chieftains responded with five runs in the bottom half of the first inning. And Osceola was able to maintain the momentum, knocking out the Panthers with a 13-3 victory in five innings Tuesday in Osceola, Wis. "I never felt like we were out of the game, even when they were up 10-3," Casper said.
WOODBURY -- A group of women who gather every month at a Woodbury coffee shop shows just how small the world is. Or how diverse the city has grown to be. The International Women's Group of Woodbury consists of members who come from all different parts of the world: Brazil, Mexico, Korea, Hong Kong, England, Canada, France, Lebanon, Egypt, Argentina and Chile, just to name a few. The group was started just last spring by Lisa Vale, an American whose family traveled for work to Brazil, Italy and Spain for 15 years before finally settling in Woodbury.
Nick Boyer doesn't think physical fitness should be limited to those who can afford it. The Woodbury resident and personal trainer recently launched an organization called Power of Exercise. The concept behind the nonprofit is to provide a gym membership and personal trainer services at no cost. "I see a need and an opportunity to help people who can't afford it," Boyer said. The plan, he explained, calls for Power of Exercise to receive nominations for prospective clients through the organization's website.
