The Springfield Park District in Springfield, IL has decided to rename Douglas Park due to the name being associated to the late Sen. Stephen Douglas. Stephen Douglas became a senator in the late 1840s, where he remained until his death in 1861 . Monuments and other properties that share his name and/or likeness in Illinois  have been under review because of Douglas connections and profiting off of slavery. The Springfield Park District voted 7-0 in favor of the change on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020. In the past month, officials at the Illinois State Capitol building, have also decided to take down the Stephen Douglas statue that currently resides on the east side of the building on the capital grounds. The removal process of the statue is already underway, but the renaming of the park is to be determined. This photo was taken on Sunday, Apr. 5, 2020 in Springfield, IL.

Jason York, of Elvis Place Concessions, serves up some hot dogs off the grill during the Food Truck Fridays event at the Pavilion in Marion, IL. Food Truck Friday event was put on by the Pavilion and by the Marion Cultural and Civic Center. The event occurs each Friday, where people can come out and enjoy the different foods offered from different food trucks / vendors. A lot of those events [Fairs] that hold too many people have been cancelled. So this is a nice fix for us.  To come in and have people come out and enjoy them in different ways...weve been doing it for fifty years and we have a lot of food to offer. It [COVID-19] definitely affected a lot of the events, so this is helpful, said York. Sept. 11, 2020, Marion Pavilion.
