Erin Luhmann up; Foster-care agencies down

UP: Erin Luhmann. The UW-Madison student won a working trip with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who every year takes a journalism student abroad to show them the ropes of international reporting. Kristof will take Luhmann to Africa, possibly visiting Congo, South Sudan or Mali.

DOWN: Foster-care agencies. Embarrassed over the state having paid a Middleton foster-care agency $6.1 million more than it should have, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee votes to audit 24 other groups. Committee co-chair Samantha Kerkman (R-Powers Lake) says: "I want to make sure that this is not happening around the state."
