Episode 97 - It‘s Been a Minute

September 13, 2021

Welcome to the Illinois Valley Podcast. We have returned from the podcast doldrums! This week we revisit topics from our last episode including the 2020 derecho, Covid schooling, the Burgoo, and dog fines. We also touch on some new stuff including an update on the Starved Rock State Park & Matthiessen State Park land annexation. As usual, we talk a little pod, and share some thoughts on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
