Winslow Chou and Ethen Jefferson, both of Carbondale, smile after cutting the ribbon at El Greco restaurant. After hearing about the restaurant’s closure, Jefferson and Chou decided to save the city staple. “It was like, if nothing else, let’s just see if we can save one Carbondale icon rather than seeing another one go down,” Jefferson said.

Truth, justice and the Saluki way
Joe Wilson, a junior from Millstadt studying history, waves to students Wednesday as he runs through the Faner breezeway. Wilson, also known as “Saluki Superman” according to his Facebook page, started dressing in the costume to make his regular runs more entertaining for both him and the people he passes. “I always get positive reactions,” he said. “A lot of people will stop and ask if they can get pictures taken with me. I really want to be running one day and see someone dressed as a Superman villain. I would give them serious props.” Laura Roberts-Daily Egyptian
