Historic Building in Marine Razed



   If you happened to be in Marine, Illinois on the morning of April 26 , and were wondering what was going on at 226 North Duncan Street, the historic Schaefer Building finally came down after more than a century and a half of existence.
   The building has been in disrepair for several years, and despite a major effort by some local residents to save the building, the decision was irreversible. It was built in the mid-1800s and home to several businesses over the years. 
    This week's Times-Tribune has a column about the effort, and next week's edition will carry a historical piece about the early owners and tenants of the building, along with some historic photos. -- 4/27/2016

Man Dies After Arrest In Arkansas

   (Times-Tribune) 4/8/2016 -- Reports out of Harrison, Arkansas, this morning say a 50-year-old man from the Troy area, Jeffrey Slaby, died while in police custody on April 4.
    Slaby was being held in a jail cell after being stopped in his car and arrested earlier that day by a Boone County deputy. Officials said he was suspected of being intoxicated and that he had refused to be tested during the incident.
    Slaby lived in O'Fallon with his family. He was a 1983 graduate of Triad High School.
   Although the case is under investigation, Boone County Sheriff Mike Moore is cited by local media as saying that foul play is not suspected and that heart attack is the likely cause.
   The Times-Tribune will have further details and a full obituary in its April 14 edition.
