Illinois State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) said he will take a leave of absence to be treated for a rare form of cancer.
Sullivan said he has liposarcoma. It's a type of cancer that creates a slow growing, painless mass that is usually found in the fat cells of the legs, though it can also be found in the arms, chest, neck, and in the space behind abdominal organs.
Mayor Scott Thompson said the city has officially rolled out its new website.
Thompson said it's taken a year to get to this point because the city is doing the project in-house. He added it's still a work in progress.
“Is it sparkling and does it have all the cool features right now? No. But it looks nice, it's going to be functional, it's going to serve the purposes for which it's intended, and we'll grow it as we can,” said Thompson.
