Ribbon-cutting Tuesday for new college housing

Vermilion Community College has reached the end of a project several years in the making, and the start of a new era for student housing on campus.
Tuesday, ribbon-cutting ceremonies will be held to formally open Timber Ridge, the school’s new on-campus housing units.
The event is set for 4 p.m. and will include remarks from an array of dignitaries.
They’ll celebrate the completion of an effort to improve and enhance Vermilion’s housing inventory.
The Timber Ridge complex is the result of a $6.5 million project that will house 112 students in four new buildings, each with three townhome units.
The 26,000 square foot complex is adjacent to the existing VCC dormitory and is the result of an appeal by numerous college officials, who said Vermilion needed new housing to meet student demand and to replace aging college duplex units on the northwest side of the campus.

by Tom Coombe
Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital is turning 60 in style.
The hospital is marking its birthday next weekend with a major event at Whiteside Park with a giant, interactive body exhibit serving as the main attraction.
The MEGA Body Exhibit, an inflatable replica of the human body that stands 12 feet high, 15 feet wide, and 50 feet long, will stand out in the park, but the Aug. 19 event will include much, much more, starting with opening ceremonies at 10 a.m.
“It’s a free community event that we wanted to host and say thank you to the community for supporting quality health care in Ely and supporting us for 60 years,” said Jodi Martin, the hospital’s community benefits and public relations coordinator.
