U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, has announced plans to open a congressional office in Suite 101 of the McKesson Building at 100 19th St., Rock Island.

The office will be opened once furniture, phone lines and other equipment is installed, a news release said. New members of Congress were given access to office budgets last week, allowing them to secure leases.

"My new Quad-Cities office will serve as a one stop shop for families across the Quad-Cities area who are in need of a listening ear and a lending hand," a statement from Rep. Bustos said. "My staff and I look forward to getting to know and helping constituents across our region, and we welcome them to drop by our office to say hello in the upcoming weeks."

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.
