The Class 3A Galesburg Regional and the Class 4A UTHS Regional in boys' basketball will be taking different approaches to their semifinals.
Both will have Monday play-in games to the semis, with No. 4 seed Geneseo playing No. 5 seed Alleman in 3A and No. 4 Moline facing hosting No. 5 UTHS, both at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25.

In 4A at UT, No. 1 Rock Island will face the Moline-UT winner at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, and the other semifinal, No. 2 Peoria Richwoods vs. No. 3 Pekin, will be played the next night on Wednesday.
Both will have their championship games on Friday, March 1, with 7:30 p.m. starts.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
