Hope Creek Referendum

Michelle O'Neill

Another referendum for Rock Island County's nursing home is on Tuesday's ballot. The county board is residents to raise the tax levy for the Hope Creek Care Center in East Moline. 

On today's WVIK News Focus, Herb Trix reports. 

District 22 Rock Island County Board Member, Drue Mielke, and District 7 member and Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, Steve Meersman, on today's WVIK News Focus. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
