  • Tornado Update: 6 Months Later It was 6-months ago this week when an F-2 tornado  traveled nearly 90 miles across Northwest Wisconsin, killed one man and caused tremendous damage in Barron and Rusk Counties. Just days after the May 16th tornado, local resident Foster Friess challenged the public to donate to relief efforts and promised to match donations up to 1-million dollars.  Ashley Rayment with Red Cedar Church in Rice Lake says the response has been tremendous. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says he has also been impressed with the compassion and generosity that the public showed after the storm. Donations for the matching challenge are still being accepted through December 31st at Red Cedar Church in Rice Lake.

  • Anti-"Catfishing" Bill Scheduled For Public Hearing This Week A proposed bill scheduled for a public hearing at the Capitol later this week would target a practice called "catfishing." The legislation would make it a misdemeanor to impersonate someone or use a false name on social media in order intimidate, harass, or receive some other benefit.  Lawmakers say it's become a concern as social media has made it easier to reach people while pretending to be someone else.
