Macomb, IL – Rich Egger's guests are David Casagrande and Heather McIlvaine-Newsad of Western Illinois University. They talk about the ongoing recovery efforts from the Mississippi River floods of 2008.
Macomb, IL – Rich Egger's guest is Allen Nemec, who is author of Macomb Homes With Names: A Look Into Macomb, Illinois' Historic Homes, Their Past Inhabitants, and A View of Them Today.
Nemec said the self-published book includes text about and photographs of roughly 200 homes. Just about all of them precede 1930.
Nemec works a full-time job so the book was something he worked on in his spare time. He conducted extensive research with help from the WIU Archives. It took him about five years to complete the project.
