When members of the Islamic Society of Central Wisconsin arrived at their mosque for noon prayers Saturday, a message awaited them.


It was the day after a story was published in Gannett Central Wisconsin newspapers about local Muslim reactions to the national political battles that have swirled around the religion. The hand-written placard worshippers found had a peace sign and a heart drawn on it, and the message, "You have friends in Marshfield." It was next to a pot of yellow mums.
