Several months ago, someone suggested we not dine at Cuban Island Restaurant in Indialantic because “they’re working on things,” and so we gave it time. “Working” worked. Cuban Island is a bright, comfortable eatery with a rather intimate bar near the door, original art on the walls and an altogether stylish approach. Tables are of dark wood, napkins are of cloth and beverages are served in stemware. The menu is fairly extensive, with traditional as well as more creative entrees, sandwiches and even Cuban breakfast items ($7. 50 each). So evocative was the place that we started with a request for a beverage not listed, and the answer was the right one: yes, white sangria was possible, and it was as refreshing a beverage as you could want on a hot afternoon. Shrimp ceviche ($9) was the appetizer and a fine selection it was: a lot of it, cleverly served in an oversized martini glass with a couple of tostones as well as warm, sliced Cuban bread with a dollop of pasta de jamón, or ham spread. God bless Cuban Island for that. Review: Bald Strawberry serves gluten-free goodness.

After a late night out on the town, Bloomington automobile dealer Frank H. Cole and his wife Grace pulled into their driveway at 1516 E. Grove St. It was about 1 a. m. on Sunday, March 10, 1929 when Frank stopped to let Grace out by the front... After driving around the outskirts of Bloomington for some 20 minutes, the two men got out of Cole’s Packard somewhere along Seminary Avenue and allowed him to drive home unmolested. Organized kidnappings were known in some quarters as the “snatch racket,” though that term was usually reserved for cases involving ransom. Locally, kidnappings and carjackings frequently went together, though the often-amateurish perpetrators were usually more interested in joyriding and smalltime holdups than high-stakes ransom. On May 21, 1932, nine days after the Lindbergh baby was found dead not far from the family’s New Jersey home, Normal resident Arthur Maxey was kidnapped in downtown Bloomington. About 9:40 p. m. that Saturday night three young men grabbed Maxey, an assistant manager at the downtown Montgomery Ward’s, as he was leaving the store to make a night deposit.
