Wisconsin State Journal, 8/19/2012.
Excerpt: The last 10 years have not been kind to this village, but officials, business owners and recreational enthusiasts are working together to restore the crowds.
Instead of bus tours, the vision is more broad in this village of just more than 1,200 people on the border of Dane and Jefferson counties.
Restaurants and shops are still seen as key components, but the village is trying to attract those who bike, kayak, canoe, paddleboard and cross-country ski. Koshkonong Creek, Lake Ripley and CamRock County Park provide the opportunities.
