County Highway 1 connects the end of the pavement of Spring Street with Route 54. The rebuild is underway. If you don&apos;t believe the first road-closed sign, there's no argu- ment when you reach the second set of road dosed signs. In between is driveway access for temporarily "trapped" residents. County Highway 1 now actually looks like what it did in the 1910s photos that occasionally surface. Times Photos MICK CYRULIK will be experimenting on a section of the retaining wall surrounding the Courthouse Square. Miek will try two products to pair, stabilize, and improve the wall's structure and appearance. One product is vinyl con- crete patch. The other is called Tams.

Mick chose to work on the section of retating wall at the courthouse because it presents the most common overall problems with the existing retaining wall.

POliceReport By Mike Lakin ODuring an pest, stating to an officer "You gota long night coming", probably isn't the smartest thing to do. OMom went all momma bear on the officer when he arrested her son for driving suspended. Standing in the parking lot at the Dairy Bar she treated customers to a string of profanities aimed at the arresting officer. Sonny had been suspended since 2010. He was arrested in 2011 in Sangamon County for driving suspended and had four prior charges for driving sus- pended. Officer Kyle Veech conducted the arrest. Health Care Needs ALL THE LOOSE PAINT has been scraped inside the Mt. Pulaski Courthouse. And, from an historic point of view, the interior now looks like it did when the building served as a courthouse.
