GREAT TURNOUT AT ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT

 

The Easter bunny was a busy bunny and so was a large crowd of kids Saturday afternoon at Greenville's Patriots Park. The Greenville Commercial Club and Optimist Club held their annual Easter egg hunt. Grand prizewinners included Hunter Matthews, age 8, in the older division, who won a bike.  Nicholas Harrantty, age 6, found a prize egg and also won a bike. Autumn Nutt, age 5, won a tricycle and Adin Peper, age 2, found the prize egg in the youngest division and won a little red wagon.

SPRING WEATHER BRINGS NEED FOR BIKE SAFETY

 

The weather is changing and more people are enjoying the outdoors.  We asked Ed Barsody, with the League of Illinois Bicyclists, about bike safety and how common bicycle accidents occur. According to Barsody, the leading cause of bike/car accidents is people riding their bikes on the wrong side of the road where motorists are not looking for them, especially at intersections. Bicyclists should ride on the right side of the road, it is the law. They should wear bright clothing to make themselves more visible and always follow the "Rules of the Road."


ROAD CLOSED FOR RAILROAD WORK

 

Fourth Street, south of Franklin, will still be closed through midday today for railroad crossing work.
