Macomb, IL – A soil scientist at Western Illinois University is looking for some tomato plants.
Members of the Food Initiatives Group (FIG) handed out the plants during the Heritage Days parade in Macomb at the end of June.
Assistant Agriculture Professor Joel Gruver - who is a FIG member - says he grew more than 350 plants for the parade. He says almost all were handed out. He would like to hear what happened to them.

Macomb, IL – Something new is being tried to encourage more people to pedal rather than drive around the campus of Western Illinois University.
It's called a bike share program. The concept is basically the same as checking out a book from the library.
History Professor Peter Cole says any student or faculty and staff member can check out a bicycle for free for up to 48 hours.
