Today is Friday, March 28, 2014. News reports from this date 100, 50 and 15 years ago:
In 1914: Mayor O.B. Dobbins today revoked the pool hall license of C.S. Ludwig, who has been conducting a place on the east side. The reason given is that officers declare a bootlegger has been making his headquarters at Ludwig's place. Ludwig himself has not been accused of bootlegging.
In 1964: Champaign-Urbana residents have been seeking information about former Champaign city manager Robert Oldland and former city engineer Jack Easley, who live in Anchorage, Alaska, which was struck by a devastating earthquake Friday night.
In 1999: unlike the April 1986 school tax increase referendum, the April 10 proposal is all or nothing. Voters won't be able to pick and choose from among four projects but instead must vote for or against the entire $23.6 million package.
