Walgreens Up, Seniors Down

UP: Walgreens. The state Supreme Court rules that the city of Madison overcharged two Walgreens stores $150,000 in property taxes. The court says the city erred in basing its assessment on the high amount of rent the stores paid, rather than the buildings' fair market value. The decision could have a significant local and statewide impact.

DOWN: Seniors. A report by the Wisconsin Women's Network and other groups finds that many Wisconsin seniors don't have enough income to cover basic needs. The report says elders in Dane County need about $21,000 annually for living expenses like food, rent and transportation, but the average Social Security stipend is $14,000.
