TOWN OF GENESEE - Authorities say they're not seeking anyone in the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl who turned up safe in Chicago after going missing Tuesday.
The new details were disclosed Saturday during a news conference held by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department outside the home Kathryn Stalbaum in the Town of Genesee. Investigators say she in good physical condition Friday evening when she approached a Chicago police officer.
Sheriff's Inspector Eric Severson says Stalbaum was ``happy and talkative'' Saturday. But he says investigators were waiting to ask her detailed questions about why she went to Chicago, how she got there and what she did since she disappeared Tuesday.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/HNzzZV ) the girl and her parents did not attend the news conference but a family statement thanked authorities.
RHINELANDER - Nicolet College offers incoming students a faster way to get through the hassle of the college application process.Wednesday's "Quick Start" day in Rhinelander gave students one-on-one attention with career coaches and college advisors.
Nicolet staff walked students through applications, assessments and financial aid to make sure they don't get overwhelmed.
Career coach Angeline von Neupert said "Quick Start" gives students and staff an opportunity to get to know each other.
"It's really neat to get to know the students individually and kind of walk them through the process. It's cool to come together as a team. We're usually scheduling them and then they come back and go back and forth," said von Neupert
Fall classes start in August. If students missed Quick Start day they can schedule a meeting with a Nicolet College advisor.
MERRILL - As Linda DeBroux walks through Merrill High School, she can see the halls she helped create.
What started as plain, whitewashed walls now look like an art gallery. For each of the last 13 summers, DeBroux has guided a select group of her art students to create murals to fill the walls.
"When I walk down, I don't just see the painting, I see the student, right there, painting on that wall," she said Wednesday. "I think of all the struggles, the struggle points they had, and parts where they celebrated."
Murals by ten students this week will bring the total to 157 on school walls. Like it does every summer, it will take long days to accomplish the project.
