A local musician working to restore an old church in LeClaire into a recording studio was badly injured in a fall.

Mikey Loy of the Penny Serfs discussed his band's latest album and his restoration work last week on WVIK's Talking Art podcast. Days after the interview aired, Loy fell 15 feet while refinishing the church's ceiling. 

Joy and Gaye Shannon were new to the Quad Cities when they became students at Rock Island High School in the early 1970s. 

It was a time when political tension and unfair treatment of African American students persisted in schools. In 1972, this angst resulted in a week of unrest at Rock Island High School — often referred to as the Rocky riots.
