I read Billy’s recent “free” post about how he was denied access to police reports. His post calls into question the police department’s restriction of this information to only those with press credentials.
I wanted to find out what the police department’s policy actually was, so I e-mailed Chief Settingsgaard. It turns out that, [...]
Billy Dennis is trying something new in the Peoria blogosphere: You won’t be able to read his original content on the BlogPeoria Project (www.blogpeoria.com) unless you subscribe. Subscriptions are relatively cheap at $3 per month. His post explaining the new system is here.

Every fifth Tuesday of the month, there’s a Blogger Bash, and this month was no exception. Everyone met at Kelleher’s Irish Pub on Water Street to eat, drink, and mingle.

Just come out to Blogger Bash anyway. It’s tonight at 6 p.m.
Local blogger PeoriaIllinoisan has started a new series of posts he’s calling “Peoria Then & Now.”
