Sew Many Friends offers materials, classes for needleworkers

[NOV. 2, 2000]  "A hobby that took over my life" is the way Ivy Koritz describes quilting. And she admits to being a "fabriholic." So it seems only natural to find her behind the counter at "Sew Many Friends," the quilt and sewing shop at 127 S. Kickapoo. The new store, which belongs to Ivy and her husband, Dick, of Clinton and Sue and Butch Bidwell of Lincoln, carries all sorts of quilting supplies, as well as 500 to 600 bolts of fine-quality fabrics. "But we’d like to have more," Ivy says. "We fabriholics want a bolt of everything on the market."

Jeff Mayfield interviews Andy King

Former LCHS player now king of the ISU 
trenches

Part 1

[NOV. 2, 2000]  The last few weeks the LDN has been taking an up-close-and-personal look at former Railer athletes that are now engaged in collegiate athletic warfare. One such performer is former Railer lineman Andy King. Andy now occupies the left tackle position for the Illinois State Redbirds. After a slow start, the Redbirds have won three in a row and still plan to make some noise in their final three games of the year.
