    URBANA — Described as a candidate with "outstanding" personal and professional qualities, James Holmes was accepted into the University of Illinois Neuroscience Program in 2011 and was offered financial support through a combination of fellowships, teaching and research assistantships, and tuition and fee waivers, The News-Gazette has learned. However, a few weeks after his visit to the Urbana campus in the spring of 2011 and one day after he was offered admission to the highly selective graduate program, Holmes declined to accept, without elaborating on the reasons or his plans for the future, according to university documents provided to The...

    Traveled by Native Americans, presidents, generals, gypsies and families seeking a new life in the west, “The Great Road,” known today as Frederick Road or Route 355, provided a path for both the adventurer and the entrepreneur.

You can read the Daily Illini pre-coverage here and my news/blog article on the speech itself here. Thoughts on Clarke? Does he have valid points to bring up? Or an alterior motive? He was a decent speaker and it was a packed crowd the overflowed into another room where another packed audience watched the lecture on monitors. He took a few jabs here and there (Fox news and Bush's desire to recreate the blackboard of...

    April 5, 2003; Hundreds of flags, patriotic music and the Pledge of Allegiance from a powerful PA system manned by local DJs, positive enthusiastic responses from most of the thousands of people driving past, an array of flags from Coalition countries, back-packed coffee urns moving up and down the line of 250-300 Pro-American Troop-Supporting Patriots who braved the cold windy conditions this past Saturday to stand shoulder to shoulder lining a couple of blocks along the East side of Prospect Avenue. Uncle Sam was there as a group of hardy, leather-clad, flag-waving Harley riders. Red, white and blue cup cakes,...
