EXCHANGE: Inventor creates fishing line Untwister - Washington Times

(AP) - Ray Segatti loves fishing, making his own lures, tying flies and trolling for northern pike and anything else that might grab hold of his creations, whether he’s fishing in the Illinois Valley or on Butternut Lake in Wisconsin. But the Spring Valley man hates wasting time trying to get rid of line twist. Segatti made one of his best lures for pike and musky himself, and while his creation is deadly on game fish, it also tends to cause line twist and a mess at the tip of his fishing rod when he’s trolling. It’s made out of a batch of parts, including stainless steel wire passing through a plastic tube and lead wire wrapped around the tube for weighting. The first ones he built, he made with a steel two-bladed propeller on the front. To get the twist out of the line, he’d let out a lot of line, take off the lure, tie on bell sinker with a swivel and drive the boat around until the twist worked out. What a waste of time that is. He tried to lessen the line twist from his favorite “Hare Mouse” lure by putting a blade that spins in one direction on the front and a prop that spins in the other direction behind the body. When he first built one, he took two big prop-style spinners, bent the blades so one would spin in one direction and bent the other the opposite direction. He glued them together, passed a wire through the middle of them and bent loops into each end of the wire.

Days later, community still angry over Westclox blaze - Chicago Tribune

Looking across the street, she saw a wall of flame: Westclox was on fire. Once the pride of this Illinois River town, the massive former clock and watch factory had stood mostly empty for 31 years, a brick and steel Goliath that stretched several city blocks. Authorities say two boys, ages 15 and 17, broke into the complex, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and set a fire that burned for five days. The fire appeared well under control Friday, with only small gray puffs escaping from two blocks of charred remains. Much of the Westclox complex, including the ornate front entrance, remained intact, something Peru Fire Chief Jeff King credited to a firefighting plan crafted well in advance of the blaze. "We have trained and trained" for this possibility. But calculations of the damage have only begun, and no one is yet sure of the health and environmental damage wreaked by the fire. Smoke likely infused with carcinogens drifted over the town for days, and state environmental officials expect to find plenty of asbestos among the ashes. "People are really enraged about it," said Talley, 40, who spent much of New Year's Day convinced she was going to lose her house.
