    The Bix 7 is a tradition for area families and world class runners every year. Many runners and walkers challenge themselves on this course. While some are participating for the first time, others say they haven't missed a year on the course or the sidelines. They say it's as much about the race as it is the atmosphere and being a part of something this big."I did the quick Bix last year and this year. The other times I've run or limped the Bix," said Jamie Snyder, who is a Bix 7 participant....More >>

Rita Crundwell's personal belongings are up for auction and everything must go.  

A look at what's up for the bidding online lists everything from cars, boats, furniture and appliances, to fur coats, designer clothes, shoes and accessories. It all will be sold in a matter of days online. 

"An online auction certainly reaches a wider audience, it allows far greater participation, and we eliminate costs we'd incur for a live auction," Jason Wojdylo of the US Marshal Service says. 

Wojdylo says costs like hiring an auctioneer and renting out a space with enough seating and parking are all things the marshals are looking to save on, making sure Dixon gets every penny it can back. 

"While these costs may seem minimal, given the $53 million loss, we look at it as though every dollar counts," Wojdylo says. 

US Marshals have gotten appraisals on every item they're auctioning off so they know how much to expect from these online sales, but don't expect them to tell you how much any of it is worth. 

"We don't want people to stop bidding should the product reach that value, our goal is to generate the greatest revenue to be able to return the greatest proceeds to the victim of the crime," Wojdylo says. 

On top of all that, they're also trying to sell off some of Crundwell's homes and land without a real estate agent to save up to $135,000 in commission from each sale.  

Whoever has the highest offer on any of Crundwell's properties will be responsible for any remaining taxes and closing costs involved-- all so the city can get the biggest bang for its buck. 

"This process will facilitate cost savings that will allow us to return more money to the victim in this case, and that's the city of Dixon," Wojdylo says.
