Dust off those old shoeboxes filled with black and white pictures, and get that yellowed album full of dog-eared photos from yesteryear out of the safe – Pediment Publishing and the Wisconsin State Journal are currently collecting historic photos of Madison from the 1800s through 1939 for a book project.

Public Health Madison and Dane County will be providing $300,000 to five county organizations working to reduce violence within the community. The organizations receiving funding include the Dane County District Attorney’s Office, the Dane County Multi Agency Center, the Meadowood Neighborhood Association, Operation Fresh Start and Urban Triage.
