UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The agency that safeguards Wisconsin's natural resources disciplined more than two dozen of its workers last year. The Associated Press said state D-N-R bosses wrote 26 letters which informed workers they were fired, suspended, or reprimanded. The actions involved less than one-percent of the agency's 2,600-plus employees.

The D-N-R wrote seven more disciplinary letters last year than in 2012.

All the letters were made public except one, in which a punishment is still being challenged.

Among other things, workers were disciplined for making inappropriate comments, punching a fellow employee, misusing a state-owned boat, and watching pornographic videos on the job. The employees' names were blacked out of the letters that were released. The D-N-R's Amber Passno said the names were not needed in order for taxpayers to know how well the agency handles employee discipline.
