It was recently reported that the delay in the construction of the new academic building on campus was due to the harsh weather in Chicago during the winter months. This has been the official reason given by the school and city alike, but the delay was truly caused by gophers. These are not your run of the mill gophers, however, as many of them have apparently grown massive in size and have begun to surface due to the ongoing work in and around their homes in Morton Park.

In addition to Springfield being the state capitol of the state of Illinois, the city has significant ties to the sixteenth President of the United States: Abraham Lincoln. The fact that the city is the capitol of the state is directly linked to this legendary statesman, who successfully convinced the rest of the state government to move to a more central location in the state rather than near the Mississippi River. The legacy of President Lincoln is seen across the city, with numerous statues, plaques, and business being named for Lincoln.

Many people don’t realize that the capitol of the great state of Illinois is not the city of Chicago. Despite Chicago being the state’s most vital economic powerhouse and tourist destination, the Governor of Illinois and the state legislature do not meet and work here, but rather in the much smaller town of Springfield. The town of Springfield, which is the sixth most populous city in the state, was chosen to be the state capitol due to its much more centralized location in the state than Chicago.

The quiet town of Harvard, Illinois sprung to life this Labor Day weekend, with the town’s first annual balloon festival. The event, which took place on Sunday and Monday this holiday weekend, did have some difficulties when it came to the balloons themselves. With each hot air balloon being at the mercy of the weather in which it finds itself, the conditions had to be just right to ensure the balloons did not land in Lake Michigan, nearby antennas, or near any other equally dangerous locations nearby.
