2-year-old girl pulled from Mississippi River has died

GRANT COUNTY—A 2-year-old girl from Waterloo, Iowa, died after being pulled from the Mississippi River Saturday among some islands on the Wisconsin side, across from Waupeton, Iowa.

Bryle Morgan was transported by Sherrill Ambulance to Mercy Medical Center Dubuque, then flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. She died early Sunday morning, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Department.

The girl was preparing for a group photograph with her family at approximately 5:05 p.m., when she and her mother returned to a boat to retrieve an item, according to a sheriff’s department news release. When the mother got out of the boat, she noticed the girl was missing and the family began to search.

The girl was found under a boat in the water. She was immediately pulled from the water and rescue efforts were started.

If you’ve been driving on Marquette Road in Prairie du Chien, you may have noticed that the tank at the Prairie du Chien veteran’s memorial has had a bit of a makeover. On Wednesday, July 1, Top Notch Construction and Design, LLC, began the process of repainting the area landmark. “We had four guys out here all day,” said Pete Langmeier, one of the company’s owners.

Afterward, Pete said that he had a new respect for the men who manned the machine in combat. In order to repaint the tank, the Top Notch workers first power-washed and scraped off the old layer of paint. When it was dried off, the crew then put two coats of paint on the machine to finish off the job.

Top Notch donated both the time and materials for the project’s completion. “Prairie has been very good to us,” said Pete. “We wanted to find a way to give something back.”

Friends of the Mississippi River to hold beach clean up on St. Feriole Island

By Caitlin Bittner

With the beautiful summer weather, many people are spending more time outside along the riverfront. Unfortunately, a time that is meant to be for relaxing and fun is turning into a time spent picking up trash.

“I spend a lot of time down there,” said 29-year-old Desiree Stephenson, organizer of the upcoming community service events to clean up the St. Feriole Island’s Mississippi River beach.

Stephenson said that the desire to do something about the conditions of the beach stemmed from an afternoon with her kids and friends. “We spent about an hour cleaning just so the kids could play. We ended up with a plastic bag full.”
