Craig’s List: 4 Things to Know – 8/8

A gorgeous full moon is setting in the southwest sky this morning.

1 – Clear skies are on tap for at least another 48 hours, with fairly mild temperatures for this time of year. Your detailed forecast from the National Weather Service is here.

2 – Despite a moratorium on store openings around the world, Dunkin Donuts will be moving forward with the opening of a store in Rock Island that we told you about earlier this year. Construction was supposed to start in July with an October opening date. So far, no work on the 18th Avenue site has taken place.

3 – The River Bandits won their seventh game in a row last night and will go for the sweep against Beloit tonight at Modern Woodmen Park at 6:30pm. Catch the play-by-play on our sister station KBOB 1170. More scores when we do That Sports Thing at about 7:40am.

4 – Great island food and music descends on The District in Rock Island this Saturday when the annual Ya Maka Festival returns. This year’s affair is a one-day event rather than the two-day festival of year’s past. I’ll be there for some jerk chicken dinner. More entertainment news when we do That Hollywood Thing around 8:40am.

Happy Birthday wishes to my son Eric, who I dropped on his head for the first time 14 years ago today. Have a great Tuesday.

– Craig
