Viva las Bacon: Local Bacon Bash winner aims for higher stakes


After winning the River Falls Bacon Bash bacon-cooking competition, Caryl Wiley is planning to pack up her bacon and bring it all the way to Las Vegas for the 2013 World Food Championships bacon competition — if she can raise enough money to go.

“I do really, really want to go,” Wiley said. “So I’m hoping that, that will come across, and people will want to support (me)… and support the River Falls name.”
