Peoria now has an Honorary Secretary Ray LaHood Roadway. The former US transportation secretary was honored Monday in his hometown. LaHood spoke in front of Peoria's downtown federal courthouse. Five of his ten grandchildren tugged on a rope to unveil the sign. LaHood retired earlier this year. The 67-year-old says he's been teaching classes at Bradley University and working on a book about his time in Congress.
