Illinois has several sleepy, small towns that travelers bypass as they motor along highways. Only a few of these have figured a way to not only get people to stop, but to make their community a destination. Casey, in eastern Illinois, was struggling like most others just a few years ago.

In 2016, Illinois' voting system was hacked and personal information for tens of thousands of voters compromised. As we prepare for another presidential election, we find out what has been done to make the system more secure.
That and more on this week's Statewide.
