THREE LAKES - Every year, more than 100,000 car crashes could be prevented if people weren't texting while driving.
Teen drivers are especially at risk.
But in Three Lakes today, a group worked to get high schoolers to never text and drive.
Three Lakes senior Austin Wierschke has won national speed texting championships in New York two years in a row.
But he knows one place not to text.
"I text in all of these ridiculous scenarios, but I wouldn't be ridiculous enough to text and drive. It poses such a devastating threat to you and others on the road," he says.
Car crashes are the largest killer of teens.
Adding text messaging to their distractions only makes the road more dangerous.
"They don't have the experience developed like you or I would have, but they're also engaging in so many distracted activities, and all of that doesn't mix for a good combination," says Major Sandy Huxtable of the Wisconsin State Patrol.
Students got to try a texting and driving simulator to see how dangerous it can be.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
