WGLT's Sound Ideas - Wednesday 8/11/21

It may not be an impossible dream, but a McLean County man is certainly dreaming a very difficult dream, restoring an old railroad sleeper car to become a business. And there's a new book on backyard prairies. Up to 50 percent of court cases have at least one side representing themselves. A new grant for courts in McLean and neighboring counties will help offer road maps to the courts for those without a lawyer. And, Amazon will build a distribution center near Pekin. Yes, it's hundreds of jobs, but the pay rate makes a difference.
