The project will provide water service for 140 families, who have had connections made from the water mains to their property lines. The new $70,000 system first went into operation about two weeks ago, according to the Interstate Engineering Co. of Rock Island, which drew the plans and supervised construction.

1976 -- 25 years ago
Ralph Casale could hire himself to solve the crime except he doesn't have the tools to get the job done. Casale, a private investigator from Elmwood, lost a $4,200 lie detector and $2,000 worth of camera equipment when someone broke into his car at Howard Johnson's Motel near the Q.C. Airport. The persistent thieves broke a rear window, then removed the rear seat to get into the trunk. The thieves also took two suits and 32 eight-track tapes.

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.

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.

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.
