Click HERE to see restaurant inspection reports


For the past four years, Champaign Urbana Public Health District officials have discussed ways to best publicize restaurant inspections.

Health inspection reports of restaurants and food facilities are available by request from the health department. In June, the health department also began posting a monthly list of all inspected food facilities and the current status.

In 2011, CU-CitizenAccess.org began posting full inspection reports of all restaurants that failed routine health inspections since 2008.

As a service, we continue to post the full reports of failed health inspections as part of our searchable, interactive map.

If only he were back in Bali. He would not have so many sleepless nights. His heart would not ache with sadness because of his inability to infuse the feeling of his beloved gamelan music into the hearts of his American students.
"How am I to make my students one with the music?" he has asked himself constantly.
If only.

By Jonathan Jacobson -- Connie Bickers gave me simple directions to her house in St. Joseph, but the country roads in central Illinois all look the same and in the pitch black of a winter evening I get lost. I find her house when I see a memorial road sign labeled "Cory Hubbell Way." The sign was dedicated last October (2007) by Illinois Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn in honor of Bickers' son, who died while serving in Kuwait in 2003. He is the reason I'm here.
