A new restaurant named Kahuna's is planned to open at the current location of GET video, on Harris Avenue.  WGEL spoke with owner/manager Darla Dieters about the restaurant. Darla said Kahuna's will have a Hawaiian theme with a drive-through and indoor and outdoor dining areas with a family oriented fun atmosphere.  The GET Video building will be demolished Monday, April 5 and construction of the restaurant will start immediately, and is expected to open sometime in July. Below is a rendering of what Kahuna's will look like.






Two new businesses and a museum held ribbon cuttings in Greenville Saturday morning. The first Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony was the Open Drawer Resale Shop located at 108 S. Second Street. Owner Brenda Lohman said that they have items for children, young adults, teens and a mixture of a little bit of everything including name brands. She invites anyone who would like to consign with her to come in and they will help resell their clothing. The next ribbon cutting was at 9:30 a.m. on the square for Dream Weddings, located at 102 N. Second Street. WGEL talked with Kim Cruse who said for weddings, she uses fresh and artificial flowers for the wedding party, ceremony and reception. She is also a wedding coordinator and consultant. The third ribbon cutting was for the new Demoulin Museum located at 110 W. Main. Spokesman John Goldsmith was pleased with the great turn-out. He explained that people will enjoy learning about the history of the factory. He added that besides manufacturing band uniforms, over the last 118 years there have been more facets to the company. The museum will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with regular hours but they will accommodate special tours during the week.

Farmland values across the state of Illinois remained steady in 2009, according to the 2010 Farmland Values and Lease Trends Report issued recently at the Illinois Land Values Conference. Two factors contributed to the steady price of farmland, a small amount of acres for sale, and most farmers in the past few years becoming buyers or holding onto their land because it has a higher return than CD's, bonds and the stock market. Although interest rates are low, most sales were paid in cash as they do not have recordable mortgages.
