Almost a perfect weekend

Illini back on track

By Jeff Mayfield

[OCT. 16, 2000]  The stands were packed, the weather cooperated and the Illini got back on track with a 31-0 whitewashing of the Iowa Hawkeyes. It was almost a perfect weekend…we were one Cardinal victory away from a perfect weekend! I hate to say the overused word that this was a must win for the Illini, but this was a must win for the Illini. Though they appeared to have a slow, sluggish start, they got things rolling by taking a 21-0 halftime lead to the locker room…

Illini hoopsters unleashed

By Jeff Mayfield

Under the big top at Assembly Hall, both the Illini women’s and Illini men’s basketball teams were introduced to the public for the first time this year.

Part 1

Dana house builds a following

[OCT. 16, 2000]  Although the Dana-Thomas House in nearby Springfield is the best preserved and most complete example of acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s early Prairie-style houses and has gained national attention in past years, it has failed to garner strong support from several facets of the central Illinois community, according to site officials. The state historic site, located at 301 E. Lawrence Ave., features more than 100 pieces of original Wright-designed white oak furniture; 250 art glass doors, windows and light panels; and 200 original light fixtures and skylights. The house is typical of the Prairie style, characterized by low horizontal roofs, wide overhanging eaves and rows of ribbon art glass windows.
