A Bloomington police policy change has quickly and significantly reduced the racial disparity in traffic stops. The department has shifted more officers to high-crash areas instead of places that have a high demand for service. The death of an Illinois State University student hit by a vehicle in a campus area crosswalk is prompting action. The town of Normal will do a traffic engineering study at College and Kingsley. Eureka College students find out what makes an engaged citizen. And central Illinois researchers have discovered a new less expensive way to make jet fuel out of soybeans. Patent pending.

WGLT Senior Reporter Charlie Schlenker has spent more than three award-winning decades in radio. He lives in Normal with his family.
