A single-vehicle accident claimed the life of a Caseyville woman Wednesday evening on I-64.  Illinois State Police say Susan McCloud, age 50, was traveling west on I-64 and exited onto the Illinois Route 111 exit ramp at around 6:15 p.m.  McCloud lost control of the 1999 GMC pickup she was driving and it left the roadway to the left, over-turning several times.  McCloud was ejected from the vehicle. She was transported St. Louis University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.  There were no passengers in the truck and no other vehicles involved in the accident.

NEW BRICK LOCATOR TO BE UNVEILED ON VETERANS DAY

Finding the bricks of loved ones has become increasingly difficult at the Bond County Veterans Memorial. The memorial crossed the 1,000 brick level this year and a new brick locator is being unveiled at Sunday’s Veterans Day ceremony.  Tony Koonce said the locator table will make it easier for people to find their bricks when they visit the memorial and bricks will be listed in alphabetical order.  Tony said when they first started, he knew where most of the bricks were.  However, with the larger number of bricks, it will be easier for them to direct visitors to the locator table.  Since Veterans Day is on Sunday this year, the ceremony begins at 2:00 p.m. to allow for church attendance.
