More Wisconsinites needing heating help
The number of Wisconsinites who need help to heat their homes this winter is up 14 percent from a year ago.
Sheree Dallas Branch, who runs the assistance program for the state Division of Energy Services, blames the economy for the increase.
She says people who have never applied before are doing so even if they had qualified in the past but did not seek help for some reason.
