Jonathan Wright, city attorney, swears in new alderman  Glenn Shelton, as Melanie Riggs, deputy city clerk (seated), and Mayor Joan Ritter look on.

Shelton takes his place at the council table.

    At Wednesday night's city council meeting, Glenn Shelton was approved to replace Verl Prather from the Fourth Ward.  Prather moved out of the ward earlier this year.
    Shelton comes well equipped for the job.  He holds degrees in public and church administration, and his experience includes 26 years of service with the state of Illinois.  He retired in February as assistant deputy director of human services for the Social Security Disability Bureau. Currently he is pastor of Second Baptist Church in Lincoln.

Reunion of ’89 Flying Illini rekindles memory of the season of a lifetime

[JULY 6, 2000]  When we collectively sent off our own Brian Cook to the University of Illinois, visions of Final Four trips danced in our heads. Right now many of us would settle for one trip, much less four. But in order to understand where we are and where we’re going, it’s equally important to remember and mark where we’ve been. That’s exactly what 7,000-plus fans did at the Assembly Hall recently, with a reunion of our last Final Four team…the 1989 Flying Illini. Really, a lot of that season was just the journey.
