Belleville News-Democrat


BELLEVILLE - Marilyn Vise of Fairview Heights has been hired to be St. Clair County's first-ever webmaster.
Vise, a former News-Democrat reporter, will earn $36,000 in the full-time job to help design and maintain a Web site for the county.
"She is talented and well-qualified for the spot," said St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern. ...
In the mid-1990s, Vise wrote an influential series of stories about sexual abuse of minors by Belleville Diocese priests that were among the early news accounts in the nation to highlight what was part of a widespread problem. The stories won a first-place award for best news story in 1995 from the Illinois Press Association.
