The heavy and frequent rains across the midwest has resulted in flooding here in Illinois and farmers being unable to get crops in the field. But there has been another impact: bugs. Specifically, flying insects like gnats and mosquitoes. We talk with an entomologist about the swarms and how long they might last. More casinos and legal sports wagering. That’s the result of a gambling package the General Assembly approved. And Steak n Shake, founded in Normal 85 years ago, is facing problems that put the future of the chain in doubt. That and more on this week’s Statewide.
