Lincoln is calling all volunteers to decorate downtown Lincoln.
Those interested should meet on the east side of the Logan County

historic light pole in the downtown area will be wrapped with
evergreen garland and white lights and topped with a red velvet bow.
In addition, selected trees on the courthouse lawn will be wrapped
in white lights as well. More than 10,000 lights will shine brightly
during the holiday season. Volunteers are encouraged to dress warmly
and bring ladders; juice and donuts will be provided. The
transformation should be complete by noon. For additional
information, contact the Main Street Lincoln office at 732-2929.

men's basketball outlook
Illinois basketball team enjoyed a very good season last year, but
many fans viewed the year with some amount of disappointment. Why?
Because preseason expectations from both the media and central
Illinois fans were sky high. Viewing last year objectively, it is
really difficult to not see great progress on many fronts. Illinois
welcomed three new starters (Lincoln's Brian Cook, Frank Williams
and Marcus Griffin) and also played one of the most challenging
schedules in the country. Illinois enjoyed a few strong stretches
last season but was never able to establish a consistent level of
play. However, Illinois is being tabbed by many experts to have a
phenomenal season on the hardwood, and expectations for the
2000-2001 are already sky high.
