Some good news from the Illinois Department of Employment Security as the area’s unemployment rate in October was, for the most part, down from October of last year. Bureau County’s jobless rate was 8.6 percent, more than a point lower than October of 2011. Marshall County had a 7 percent jobless rate last month, down from 7.9 percent for October of last year. La Salle County’s unemployment rate was a little over 10 percent, or down one percent from a year ago. Putnam County’s 10 percent jobless rate in October was up slightly from the previous October’s mark of 9.8 percent. IDES officials say manufacturing jobs were down but jobs in construction, transportation and professional-business services were up.
