Coal Valley residents, you are invited to attend the village board of trustees meeting at 7 p.m. tonight. in the Municipal Building at 900 First St.
Come see how our village government works and meet the two people looking to be elected as our next village president (mayor). The election will be Tuesday, and our polling place has changed to New Hope Baptist Church on First St.

Our current Mayor, Stan Engstrom, is not seeking re-election.

Thank you, Stan, for your dedication and service to our community. I have served two separate five-year terms on the planning commission and zoning board of appeals. I was also elected as a trustee of the village and served on the board for two years.

Because of this participation I have firsthand knowledge of how our village government works. Now it is time to elect a new village president and I hope you join me in supporting write-in candidate, Emil Maslanka. Come to the meeting. Meet the candidates.

Make your decision and vote.

Anita L Hatalsky,
Coal Valley

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
