Macomb, IL – Seventy-five years ago this month, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the National Labor Relations Act, which said that collective bargaining was in the national interest of the United States.
FDR is just one in a long line of patriots whose actions today would get them attacked as liberals, socialists, heathens or worse.
Macomb, IL – The quest to redevelop the Lamoine Hotel in downtown Macomb has hit a snag, albeit a small one.
Community Development Coordinator Ed Basch says the state's historic preservation board now wants a couple more pieces of information from the city, which is seeking to put the hotel on the National Register of Historic Places. Once the state application is complete, it will be forwarded to the National Park Service for approval.
