New Buffet to open in Danville

According to the Commercial News, A new buffet is coming to the city’s north side.
Royal Buffet will open soon in the former No. 1 Hibachi and Grill Buffet location, 4117 N. Vermilion St.
No. 1 Hibachi and Grill Buffet has been closed almost a month. New owners have come in, changed the restaurant to a Royal Buffet and received a certificate of occupancy from the city last week, according to Mayor Scott Eisenhauer.
An opening date isn’t yet known.
No. 1 Hibachi and Grill Buffet opened in 2010, where Ryan’s Family Steakhouse once operated.
The restaurant had a Chinese and Japanese buffet, which included sushi and hibachi grilling.
Royal Buffets elsewhere have offered Asian and American food, such as Mongolian barbecue, sushi, chicken, seafood, pizza, soups, fruit and salad.

Iroquois officials to search emails for unethical/illegal conduct

According to the Paxton Record, A group of Iroquois County officials will pore over years worth of emails recovered from the work computers of former Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department employees in upcoming weeks, searching for further evidence of unethical and illegal conduct within the now-dissolved bi-county agency.

The work to be done by the Iroquois County panel — which will likely be comprised of county board members and perhaps the state’s attorney or one of his assistants — is part of the second phase of an investigation that could lead to criminal charges against ex-employees who abused their government positions.

The county is paying $5,650 to have computer forensic expert Andrew R. Garrett of Decatur-based Garrett Discovery Inc. look for evidence of waste and fraud on 18 computers used by ex-employees of the Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department. Garrett has already examined each computer’s emails, but he wants county officials to see them, as well, to help determine if the emails contain legitimate work-related content or something less appropriate.
