EAGLE RIVER - When school starts up again in the fall, buses usually fill with kids.
But Parsons of Eagle River car dealership is filling buses with school supplies for their second annual Fill the Bus fundraiser.
The car dealership began collecting school supplies last week for their month long fundraiser to benefit kids in the Northland Pines and Phelps school districts.
"Last year our new car manager, Brandee, and some others sat down and came up with this idea to help the local schools. It was such a success last year we decided to try it again this year," said Parsons Eagle River co-owner Jenny Gretzinger.

VILAS COUNTY - When Dee Burlingame walks into the Sayner Cemetery, she walks to the very back of it, near the wooded area.
"When we bought that plot we did so laughing and saying that the deer would come and run across us," said Burlingame.
Dee and her husband of more than 34 years, John Burlingame, have called Sayner their home for many years, even though they met in Cleveland, Ohio. But about a year ago, Dee's life took an unexpected turn.
