Champaign's longest-serving elected official, Michael La Due, is stepping down after 32 years on the Champaign City Council. He looks back on the changes Champaign has seen since he first took office in 1985.
With all the attention on the Summer Olympics in Rio, some may not know that more events will be held in the city about three weeks from now. Seven athletes from the University of Illinois are currently competing there, but seventeen others with connections to the Urbana campus are prepping for the Paralympics, starting September 7. There's a chance to meet these athletes in downtown Champaign Sunday, including 4-time medialist Josh George.
