Each Sunday, the Quad-City Times publishes "The Big Story," an in depth report in the Sunday paper.
WVIK previews these stories each Thursday during Morning Edition.
This week, the Times is taking a look back several big stories from 2016. One of them, of course, is the Illinois budget impasse. Lacy Scarmana talked with Dan Petrella, Springfield Bureau Chief for Lee Enterprises newspapers, which includes the Quad-City Times.
