In these days of business consolidations, one company can sometimes make a wide variety of unrelated products.
The same is true with government agencies. In La Crosse County, services for children with physical disabilities and for people with substance abuse problems are provided by a mental health department. Agency head Matt Strittmater says the long-time name of his office...Mental Health Recovery Services...doesn't quite fit any more.

The Mayo system has started using Skype computer technology to do long-distance diagnosis of stroke patients in La Crosse. Local Mayo Franciscan neurologist Greg Pupillo says video can give a specialist in Rochester more information to decide whether a patient is having a stroke.

(AP) The state Supreme Court says a newspaper has a right to complete copies of Juneau County's legal bills. The Juneau County Star-Times in 2010 asked the county for legal bills from an investigation into a former sheriff's deputy. The law firm that handled the probe released redacted bills to the newspaper through the county.
A state appeals court ruled in 2011 that the Star-Times deserved complete copies under Wisconsin's open records law. The Supreme Court ruled 4-3 Tuesday the bills are public records because they were produced during the course of the law firm's work for the county. The majority didn't take up the actual reactions, letting the appellate ruling stand on that issue.
An attorney representing the county didn't immediately return messages.

Packers CEO Mark Murphy is expected to present the improvements to the board Tuesday. They may also include renovations for the Pro Shop and Curly's Pub.
Packers' spokesman Aaron Popkey says that team officials will also outline how the project will affect stadium scheduling.
