Dressing up our town for the holidays

Main Street Lincoln is calling all volunteers to decorate downtown Lincoln. Those interested should meet on the east side of the Logan County Courthouse beginning at 8 a.m. this Saturday, Nov. 18. Each 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.

Illini men's basketball outlook

By Greg Taylor

[NOV. 17, 2000]  The Illinois basketball team enjoyed a very good season last year, but many fans viewed the year with some amount of disappointment. Why?
