Reverend Jesse Jackson Junior joined a couple hundred people in a peaceful drive through demonstration and march in honor of ISU graduate student Jelani Day in Peru, Illinois. Day's death has been ruled by drowning but the chants were about justice for Jelani and no justice no peace. Unit 5 schools have been getting ready for today's federal approval of the Coronavirus vaccine for kids ages five to eleven. They'll offer vaccination clinics.

Meet Druhv Rebba. And Normal City Manager Pam Reece drops by.
