An award-winning restaurant and destination site is changing ownership after 10 years in business. The Wabash Coffee House in Hutsonville changed owners last month as former owners Charles "Chuck" and Jackie Eckert turned over the keys to Ashley and Neal Newlin.

After '19 losses, farmers facing another soaking
The state's climatologist is predicting Illinois farmers are likely to endure more burdensome wet weather while they try to plant cash crops this spring after suffering major losses as a result of a record-wet planting season last year.

April through June is likely to be wetter than normal in Illinois, according to rainfall projections from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, posing a challenge to corn and soybean farmers in the heart of planting season.

Letting go of, and holding onto, the past
I have a better than average memory - at least as far as I recall. I also have a habit of keeping things from my past, partly because we moved around a good deal when I was little and I learned that show and tell wasn't just for kindergarten. "That's right, this rock came from the Alamo..." and such things always added a distraction to the desire to be looked at less critically.

• 'Average' not good enough for our schools anymore
• It's easier to start a war than to keep a peace
