MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A northern Wisconsin sawmill has agreed to pay nearly $191,000 and stop hiring children under 16 to settle a federal lawsuit labor regulators filed after a teenager was killed on the job this summer and other child employees were hurt in a string of accidents.
To borrow a line from Disney's Frozen, "for the first time in forever" every moment of 2022 was not defined by COVID.
Instead, a large chunk of the year's health headlines was devoted to the overturning of reproductive options and its impact on Wisconsin women.
But not all headlines were bad. Here are several "good news" standouts.
This year, more than 5,000 Wisconsin women will find out they have breast cancer. The disease has a high survival rate, as long as you detect it early.
The Good News: Regardless of whether you have insurance or which kind of insurance you have, the Wisconsin Well Woman Program makes sure everyone can get screened for breast cancer.
