About 110 thousand people and businesses that sold property in Wisconsin last year had their tax ID’s and Social Security numbers posted on a state Web site for three months. They have been taken down but an investigation has now been opened to find out how this happened. The Revenue Department's, Stephanie Marquis.

This is not the first time the state Revenue Department has inadvertently put out personal data. Social Security numbers were placed on the mailing labels of 171 thousand tax forms in 2006. Over a year, five thousand tax forms had Social Security numbers in the address panes. Officials said neither incident resulted in any cases of identity theft. And they’ve made a number of security improvements since then.

Written by

The Farm to School program, which was enhanced in the La Crosse area Tuesday with a new grant, is one that has seen the chopping blocks in state government the past couple of years. State lawmaker, Jennifer Shilling, talks more about a program she has gone to bat for many times.

Farm to School in Wisconsin has been gaining momentum since 2002, with local food served in more than 100 school districts across the state, including several in western Wisconsin.

Lorenz Facing Sentencing For Drug Death

Written by

It was a year ago next week, when a man's body was found on a hillside near a La Crosse park...a short time after he died while smoking drugs.

A woman who admitted to using the drugs with Tony Du Charme will be sentenced on Wednesday for contributing to his death. Christina Lorenz has pled guilty to being a party to reckless homicide. Another charge of hiding Du Charme's body was dismissed as part of the negotiated plea. Lorenz might get up to three years in prison.

The La Crosse area already has a variety of programs designed to get people to become more healthy...

Now, some of those programs are getting a healthy dose of money from a statewide group. Jennie Melde from the La Crosse YMCA says the 'Transform Wisconsin' funding will help the 'Y' staff lead kids to healthier habits, and allow collaborative efforts with the Boys and Girls Clubs to continue.  The La Crosse County health department and the Healthy Living Collaboration will get close to half-a-million dollars in money from the Transform Wisconsin project. That group is providing money to about 30 communities around the state.

VIP treatment in D-C for a La Crosse CEO...

Dr. Jeff Thompson from Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center was invited to the White House today. Thompson got to speak about Gundersen's green initiatives during a presidential conference on 'healthier hospitals.' His remarks included a story about persuading planners of a new Gundersen expansion to find ways to reduce the energy units used in the new building, when they didn't think they could reach the energy-saving goal that Thompson wanted.  Thompson also promoted Gundersen's policies for reducing waste and encouraging recycling.
