Need bowlers for 9 Pin Bowling Tourney

In need of bowlers for the 9 Pin Bowling Tourney for St. Jude at Minonk Lanes this weekend! There are spots available for Thursday at 6:30 pm and Saturday at 4 pm. If you can get a 5 person team together, that's ideal, but at this time, we can also figure something out for individuals or couples. Just trying to raise as much as possible for St. Jude! :) Please text me asap if interested! Thank you! -Sonja Frei 309-287-2279

Thanks so much.

Needs to dispose of roof shingles

Are there any roofing contractors or something of the sort that could dispose of some roof shingles for me? I would pay you a little bit for it. I am trying to sell my house and the owner before me had a bunch of roof shingles in a wagon that I have since gotten rid of. I just need to dispose of them. Please let me know if you can help me out. Thanks!

Ketchy's Tavern Bar?

Hi ...
My dad, Tony Ketchmark, owned and ran Ketchy's Tavern on Chestnut St. from 1932 > 1948 or 49 . I saw info that his actual back-bar was sold in 2010, and was wondering if anyone local knows where that bar is now located? There was a mention of Union, IL in one story. I think it was a museum in that town. Do you know if that's true? If so, I would appreciate a heads up , as my brother would like to visit and have a beer at the bar that provided for our education and good home.

Thanks for listening.
