OK, can someone tell me why this article about the recent addition of 80 acres to the Northwestern Illinois Agricultural Research and Demonstration Center in Monmouth was printed in the Aledo Times Record, and why this article about the new Monmouth underage club AfterDark was printed in the Galesburg Register-Mail?  Better question … why was there nothing in the Review Atlas regarding these rather newsworthy local events???

Rumble in Aledo

The new Mercer County High School seems to be having a bit of trouble.  The school board had to hire two additional officers for security at the high school due to fighting on campus.  Five students have already been expelled this school year.  I know this is the first year of the Aledo-Westmer merger, but … really?!  Aledo?
