today's headlines:

  • hockey will return to the Quad Cities in the fall, 
  • Group Schumacher celebrates its new plant in Durant,
  • and progress in restoring the Civil War Monument at the RI County courthouse.

In the forecast, it should be sunny today, with a high near 87 (and that's the forecast through the holiday weekend).

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.
