The post-Christmas filing deadline for some candidates in the April municipal elections passed on Wednesday with no new candidates in Rock Island, Moline, East Moline or Silvis.

A new Illinois law extended the deadline -- from 5 p.m. Dec. 24 to 5 p.m. Dec. 26 -- for some April election candidates to file their petitions. The deadline mostly affected candidates for positions in local school districts, community college districts and library, park and fire districts.

In municipal elections, the change only affected candidates who intend to run as independents.

As of Thursday, no new candidates had filed in the four cities, according to their clerk's offices or websites.

Rock Island, however, has lost one of its mayoral candidates after the Rock Island electoral board ruled on Dec. 19 that Paula Rummels would not appear on the April 9 ballot.

Ronald Day, a retired Rock Island resident, challenged Ms. Rummels' nomination papers, alleging she had not collected enough eligible signatures.Ms. Rummels has said she plans to request a judicial review of the electoral board's decision in Rock Island County Circuit Court.

Write-in candidates have until Feb. 7, 2013, to file a declaration of intent with the respective city clerk.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
