"Nobody at the gatherings, known as the “Solidarity Singalong,” uses a microphone, but the majestic marble floors and walls amplify their voices, carrying them through every corridor.
On some days only about two dozen people show up to sing, a shadow of the thousands of protesters who regularly filled the Capitol during the height of the demonstrations against Gov. Scott Walker’s plan to dramatically limit public sector collective bargaining in February and March.
But for the last nine weeks, the devoted group has come together from noon to about 1 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays to sing out its message."

Beavers have been illicitly harvesting trees around the lagoon in Tenney Park, as evidenced by this toppled tree Tuesday afternoon, April 26 near the bridge close to Sherman Avenue. Madison parks officials reported that in March more than $5,000 in damage was caused by beavers to landscape trees in the park. A contractor was hired to live-trap the flat-tailed rodents, but they remain busy. Beavers like Madison's many waterways, and damage is a constant problem in parks. Two years ago, the banks of Wingra Creek were hard hit by a possible colony of beavers leaving wood chips and pointy stumps in their wake.
