But now, with the help of residents and visitors, the city is hoping to modernize those plans and put them together in one comprehensive document that will pull all the pieces together.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin hit the mark — figuratively and literally — during a tour of FeraDyne Outdoors. During a tour of the archery accessory manufacturer's Poplar Avenue facility, the Wisconsin Democrat got a chance to test the company's products — arrows, scopes and targets. After a quick lesson on how to fire a crossbow — the senator's first archery experience — the arrow flew, striking the center circle of the target.
