Quotes:
What happened to Mazomanie? ...The towns and villages in Wisconsin were laid out for the convenience of the farmers. The farmers had to get up early, do their chores, hitch up, go to town, do their shopping and get back by noon. Well, that meant the town couldn't be more than four or five miles away. But now, the farmer can step into his pickup and be in Madison quicker than he used to drive Mazomanie. Now the towns are in terrible competition. It's a fight for survival.
