Wausau native Vicki Sanfelipo has worked to establish the motorcycle trauma education program Accident Scene Management Inc. She recently finished working with Pat Simmons from the Doobie Brothers to create a public service announcement promoting Road Guardians for the organization.

Accident Scene Management aims "to reduce injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists through education," according to its website.

Sanfelipo lived in Wausau for 25 years and raised her family here. She will be visiting the area during the Tomahawk Fall Ride Sept. 13 and Sept. 14.

"Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America," a one-hour documentary relating the vital role women religious have played and the impact they have had in shaping the nation's social, cultural and spiritual landscapes, will air on WJFW-TV, channel 12 out of Rhinelander, at 6 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 15.

The program is part of the NBC "Horizons of the Spirit" series as a presentation of the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission. Its use is at NBC affiliates' discretion; so viewers should check with their local NBC station or affiliate to learn of any scheduled broadcasts. Known scheduled broadcasts and additional information will be posted on www.interfaithbroadcasting.com and www.womenandspirit.org.

Narrated by noted NPR and ABC news analyst Cokie Roberts, this documentary provides an inside look at the mystery that has shrouded Catholic women religious since they first stepped onto what is now American soil, in New Orleans in 1727, to serve those most in need.

The Sisters of Mercy of the Holy Cross, headquartered in Merrill, are members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious who are executive producers of the documentary. The Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother who sponsor Ministry Health Care in this area are featured in the documentary for their contributions to the health care provided in northern Wisconsin logging camps.
