A Peoria man was sentenced to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to stealing pricy equipment from Caterpillar Inc.
The new public-private digital manufacturing lab planned for Chicago will mean 50 to 70 jobs for the city, a professor involved in the project says, but potentially far-reaching innovation for dozens of companies involved.
Gary Bragg is getting tired of hearing the Wheels O'Time Museum characterized as Peoria's best-kept secret.
It started out as a simple Facebook conversation on bike racks around Peoria. Mike Honnold talked with a friend about the lack of them in the area, and his friend knew of a group taking photos of where racks should be. Honnold thought, why not take pictures of where they are?
Stocks meandered between small gains and losses Monday, cooling off after a rally that had pushed the Standard & Poor's 500 index above 1,500 for the first time since December 2007.
Last week closed out the month of November for the stock market and a quick glance at all the major market indices – the Dow Jones industrial average, the Standard & Poor's 500 index and the Nasdaq composite index – showed modest movement in the month. That's not surprising as we traded the presidential election earlier in the month for the spotlight on the "fiscal cliff."

Materials and energy companies led U.S. stocks lower Wednesday as commodity prices fell sharply.
In 1929, the Coca-Cola Co. used the slogan "The pause that refreshes" to advertise its flagship beverage. The idea was that drinking Coke would restore and provide fresh vigor. I bring that slogan up as it appears the overall stock market, which has had one of its best starts in more than 20 years, is heading for a pause, if not a pullback.
Just weeks after Obamacare was signed into law earlier this year, Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke was questioning the $100-plus million Form 8-K write-downs announced by corporations such as Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Co., Boeing Co. and AT&T to account for their anticipated higher costs of health care. The commerce secretary even referred to AT&T's $1 billion write-down as being "minor" - perhaps reflecting a government perspective jaded by trillion-dollar bailouts and deficits.
Stocks surged Thursday after another strong batch of earnings reports revived optimism about the economic recovery. Encouraging signs of growth in Europe added to the upbeat mood.
