"We like the base to be clean and nice and ready for the whole summer it makes it easier for the people to walk," said Werres. 

Werres says it's her responsibility to maintain the inside of the park.Some volunteers said since opening last year, the park has done so much for their community and they wanted to pay it forward. 


 "Winter in Wisconsin is a little rugged. Between the pine needles and the leaves it was actually getting to be an eye sore and it was uncomfortable to the animals so here I am," said volunteer Ken Doumar

Werres said cleanup day is an annual event and welcomes people to help next year.

MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.

Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.

But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.

"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
