Due to weather related issues, in some areas there may be delayed deliveries of your Monday issue of the NewsTribune.
If road conditions are severe enough, your delivery person may not be able to deliver your NewsTribune at all on Monday.
In this case, your Monday edition will be delivered with your Tuesday newspaper.
We ask you to be understanding for the safety of our carriers.
Several area libraries (La Salle, Peru, Richard A. Mautino, Graves-Hume, Oglesby and Putnam County libraries) are sponsoring an area-wide “Food for Fines” amnesty program benefiting area food pantries. From Nov. 11-23, these libraries will accept canned or boxed non-perishable food donations for payment of overdue fines. Each donated food item pays $1 in library overdue fines up to a maximum of 25 items. All food is given to area food pantries (Illinois Valley, Putnam County, Mendota Area Christian and Hall Township). Donated food is not accepted for lost or damaged books, replacement of cards or interlibrary loan fees. Because of food safety concerns, items must be in their original packaging — damaged packages, outdated food or glass containers are not acceptable. Suggested food items include canned vegetables, fruits, soups, boxed stuffing mix, cereals, pasta mixes and canned meats.
