She was a key contributor since the team first went on air in 2000. Sarah's last appearance on was on Dec. 10. Not long after that show, Sarah embarked on a trip of a lifetime to Argentina, Chile and Brazil. 

It was to celebrate her 57th birthday over the holidays.

Sarah will be incredibly missed. She was carefree and enjoyed life to the fullest.

GOV. DAYTON'S BONDING BILL

Gov. Mark Dayton's last bonding bill is a blockbuster that he says would create thousands of jobs. Republicans see it as more of a budget-buster.

Dayton is pitching the $1.5 billion package of construction projects around the state. About one-third of that would go to the University of Minnesota and other state colleges.

The Dayton Administration says the Public Works proposal will create nearly 23,000 jobs.

About $ 542 million is proposed for projects at the U of M and Minnesota state colleges.

The governor also earmarked $171 million for natural resources projects. It includes $167 million for clean water initiatives.
