The Rantoul Theatre Group opens its 2013 season with a murder mystery.
The graphic on the cover of the playbill for this production could make audience members think it’s a Sherlock Holmes mystery, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. But the play is far from that sophisticated type of mystery, and far from that masterful style of writing.

Photo of prom ‘king’ was very disturbing
To the editor:
I am writing this response to a picture in the Rantoul Press that was very disturbing to me. The Rantoul High prom.
What is going on? Prom is usually about picking a queen and king, not two queens.
I found that disgusting.
We hear so much about child abuse on a daily basis, and as horrible as it is, it still goes on.
Have any of you heard about parent abuse?
That goes on as well, so what can be done?
An exciting event is going to happen tomorrow at Rantoul Public Library.
That’s right. Tomorrow, Thursday, May 16, the children’s summer reading program kicks off with a fun-filled open house. From 3 to 5 p.m., you will have the opportunity to register your child to participate in Have Book Will Travel.
The debate has raged for years. What separates an artistic photograph from one that some would consider erotica?
“The Naked Truth” is an art photography exhibition of the nude for which I am serving as curator.
Although I have curated several academic exhibitions of this nature in the past, this is the first time I have my own artwork on display in such an exhibition.
A Rantoul resident, M.J. Thier, has sent this article to me to let everyone know that they can volunteer to help the animals at the Champaign County Humane Society.
They are in need of volunteers and donated items for sale. If you love animals, please think about this.
Don’t forget Spring Fling will take place today, Wednesday, May 8, in Rantoul.
Various churches, neighborhoods, and downtown business people will begin the event ranging from 4-8 p.m. Come and enjoy yourself, shop and meet friends as well as your police officers, firemen and paramedics. I hope to see many of you out and about Wednesday night.
Don’t agree with allowing girl to be prom king
To the editor:
I was appalled last Wednesday when I opened the Rantoul Press and saw the picture of the RTHS prom king and queen.
Both the “king” and queen were girls.
The library’s Sixth Annual Local Authors Fair was a success, thanks to all who participated. From the authors to the violinist, from those who attended to the tireless efforts of the library staff, the fair was a delightful time.
