Fellow student is a real life-saver
Anyone who offers Emily Springer a piece of butterscotch candy shouldn't be surprised if she turns it down.
Springer, an eighth-grader at Cottage Grove Junior High School, had just put the remains of her lunch in the garbage.
It was Halloween and there was plenty of candy around the school. She asked a friend for a piece of butterscotch-flavored hard candy.
"We were laughing and it slipped down my throat and stuck there," Springer said.
