FIRE DESTROYS HOME NEAR SORENTO

Shoal Creek and Greenville Firemen were called to a house fire at 1875 Panama Avenue Friday afternoon. The home belongs to Robert Collman but he was not the occupant.  The fire burned for hours and the home suffered extensive damage including the roof collapsing or being cut down to help fight the fire.  Flames could be seen coming from the roof and the smoke was visible for miles.  The cause of the fire has not been determined.  Shoal Creek Firemen were the first to respond and they called Greenville for mutual aid. Firemen were on the scene for more than five hours.

ACCIDENT TAKES LIFE OF TROY MAN

 

A single-car accident, at 11:51 a.m. Friday, on Route 161, took the life of a Troy man.  55 year-old Terry Buol of Troy was traveling west on Illinois Route 161, just west of Shiloh Station Road, when he veered across the on-coming traffic lanes, left the road way and struck a utility pole head-on.  Buol was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Belleville where he passed away.  According to the Illinois State Police, the accident remains under investigation but Buol’s medical history could have been a factor in the accident. 


STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS CERTIFIES BRADY

State Senator Bill Brady has defeated Kirk Dillard for the Republican Governor's nomination. The Illinois State Board of Elections certified the results, showing Brady finished 193 votes ahead of Dillard.  Dillard will hold a press conference in Chicago at 1:30 today, presumably to concede the race.  He has the option to ask for a recount, but has indicated he would not do so unless Brady's lead had been trimmed to with 100 votes.  If Dillard concedes, Brady will begin his campaign, along with Lieutenant Governor nominee Jason Plummer, against Democratic nominee, incumbent Governor Pat Quinn.  The Democratic State Central Committee is expected to select Quinn's running mate this month.
