March 2: This post has been updated with new information on the Illinois State Fairgrounds site.

The Illinois National Guard and the Sangamon County Department of Public Health are expanding hours at the mass vaccination site at the Illinois State Fairgrounds and have opened appointments through March 21.


On this week's WUIS / State Journal-Register Business Report,  hundreds have been hired to work at the new Hy-Vee store on Springfield's MacArthur Boulevard.  But we still don't know an opening day for the store.  And, a Girard grocery store that's been in place for a century changes hands. 

WUIS' Sean Crawford also talks with the SJ-R's Business Editor Tim Landis about work getting closer on the Carpenter Street underpass and what, if anything, can we read into farmland prices flattening out in 2013.
