Today's headlines:

  • Moline considers two proposals for the Spiegel Building,
  • worries about the fall enrollment at Western Illinois University,
  • and the first African American member of the Illinois Supreme Court plans to retire.

Partly sunny today with a high near 82, and light winds from the southeast.

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.
