Missouri man found hanging from Joe Page Bridge Nov. 28 By CARMEN ENSINGER Calhoun News-Herald While the Greene County Coroner was in the midst of investigating the death of the six-month-old child found buried in the backyard of a residence in Carrollton, another call was a received Wednesday, Nov. 28 that a man was found hanging under the Joe Page Bridge. A St. Louis man, 56-yearold Paul Hicks, was pronounced dead at the scene. Greene County Coroner Danny Powell said he received a call at approximately 8:15 a.m. from the sheriff’s department that a man had hanged himself on the Greene County side of the Joe Page Bridge. “The body of the 56-yearold was found by the workers of the sawmill around 8

a.m. when they arrived for work near there,� Powell said. “They noticed a car with Missouri plates and then they noticed the white rope suspended from the bridge and eventually spotted the gentleman hanging from the rope.� Powell said the man was hanging about 18 feet under the bridge. “He was not hanging over the water,� Powell said. “There is a road under there and he had attached the rope to one of the pillars. There was no structural damage to the bridge from the incident.� Powell said there was also no indication why Hicks had taken his own life or why had had driven to Illinois to do it. The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office reported that traffic on the bridge was not affected because of the investigation.

Calhoun High School presents school improvement plan By RACHEL MCGLASSON Calhoun News-Herald


alhoun High School Principal Cheri Burris presented the school’s tentative improvement plan to school board members at the Nov. 19 meeting. Burris outlined the school’s four main goals for the rest of this school year and the upcoming school year. “[Burris and Dylan Ringhausen] talk-

ed about forming goals that they’re going to do at the school,� Superintendent Kate Sievers said. “She and Mr. Ringhausen presented the plan to us.� The first goal of the high school is to enact a study program to help ninth grade students who know what fields they wish to go into better tailor their classes toward that goal. “One of the goals is to develop a program of study for students entering ninth grade so they can have a better idea of what classes they have to take,� Sievers said. “So, for example, if you know you’re going to go into a health

field, you would know what classes you need to take. If you’re going into a vocational field, these are the classes you need to take.� Sievers said the school already has a partial program to do this. “Right now we have a Quasimodotype system set up, but we want to go to a more full-blown, steadier program,� she said. “The State of Illinois has had this set up for a while and school districts are slowly going to that, it’s just an easier way to establish that pathway for those kids who want to go into certain areas.� Sievers said Ringhausen has already

communicated with staff on what the program will require, and it will be a collaborative effort between school guidance counselors and teachers. The second goal of the school is to better monitor student growth throughout the school year. In previous years, the students were tested with ACTs, the district has now moved to the SAT testing system, which provides the option of eighth graders, freshmen and sophomores to take PSATs, or practice SAT tests. “[With PSATs] we can monitor the (See, SCHOOL, A2)

Proposal of House Bill Illinois Department may help ensure safety of Transportation announces ferry closures in public buildings By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Calhoun News-Herald In the world that we live in today, there is no such thing as too much protection when it comes to the assurance of safety in public places. With mass shootings becoming more prevalent nationwide, the demand for prevention of these acts might not have been any higher. Illinois House Bill 5970 or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Safe Spaces in Public Placesâ&#x20AC;? bill was recently proposed by Representatives LaShawn Ford (D-Chicago) and Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora). The piece of legislation would mandate that all universities, schools, hospitals and courthouses within the state install metal detectors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should come together and consider expertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; findings and recommendations to deter preventable, mass public shootings including metal detector screening programs, mental health services, school infrastructure improvements, emergency preparedness and community relations,â&#x20AC;? Ford said. The perceived idea of the bill would have a county sheriff oversee a walk-through metal detector at each point of entry in the aforementioned places. If a sheriff is not available to monitor the system a deputy, county corrections officer or a court security officer can assist. As outlined in the bill, the plan would be to make places even safer from any outside threat. From a school safety perspective, the implementation of the devices would make children feel more at ease while attended classes, according to Dr. James Mackenzie, a child psychologist in Chicago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This legislation is a simple precaution that will make youth feel safer, making it easy for them to learn and not feel anxiety,â&#x20AC;? Mackenzie said. According to proponents of the bill, not only would the metal detectors serve as top rate deterrent, it would also help create new jobs in the state. Since the sheer volume of detectors that would need to be installed would be immensely high, it will give many people jobs in various factories that assemble them.

The biggest obstacle to overcome when dealing with this bill is acquiring the funding to purchase the devices and ensuring a guard will be present to monitor the area. Regarding funding, it has been stated in the bill proposal that some of the funding could come from the state police, which in turn would make grants available for this purpose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost would be a concern,â&#x20AC;? Calhoun Superintendent Kate Sievers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would this be another unfunded mandate from the state?â&#x20AC;? Sievers said he biggest concern with administrators is simply the cost to be able to comply, whether it be to purchase the metal detectors themselves or the hiring of someone to monitor them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Calhoun currently does not have an SRO officer, nor the funds to pay for that employee,â&#x20AC;? she added. A similar bill has been submitted in the state of Texas called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Securing Children in Schools Act.â&#x20AC;? This bill however, focuses more on the installation of metal detectors in elementary, middle and high schools. The bill does include a request of $500 million dollars of federal grant money, which would be spread out over a decade. Due to the Federal Consolidated Appropriations Act passed early this year, which includes roughly $1 billion in funding for school security, the state could certainly explore that avenue. The metal detectors that Representative Ford is asking for are portable ones that will not have to be turned on at all times. He has also stated that several school administrators in the state have expressed interest in the bill and want to get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that metal detectors do serve a purpose,â&#x20AC;? Sievers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this bill passes and it becomes a state mandate, we, as a school district, will work on implementing this in a way that best suits our schools. This would be a collaborative effort between the school board, administration and local authorities.â&#x20AC;? House Bill 5970 has been referred to the Rules Committee for further review.

By RACHEL MCGLASSON Calhoun News-Herald Per an Illinois Department of Transportation announcement, the Brussels Ferry, along with County Highway 1 near the ferry landing were intermittently closed throughout

Wednesday, and will continue to be intermittently closed throughout the day Thursday, Dec. 6 during daytime hours. IDOT stated in a release that the closures and lane restrictions on County Highway 1 are necessary for geotechnical investigations of the pavement.

Kampsville hopes for another successful Christmas Celebration By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Calhoun News-Herald Christmas time is the season of giving, celebration and community solidarity. The Kampsville community has been adhering to this theme for nearly three decades with the annual Christmas celebration, which has always been held on the third Sunday in December. This year, the festivities will commence in the gymnasium of the American Archeology Center gymnasium, formerly the Kampsville Elementary School. The event will include carnival games, basket raffles, door prizes, a

cookie walk and even a guest appearance by old Saint Nick himself. This makes the party a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mustâ&#x20AC;? if you are going to be in the two rivers region. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will also coincide with the first-ever Christmas in Calhoun Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Im sure the two events will compliment each other,â&#x20AC;? Chairman Diane Halsey said. It may seem like it the day only involves children, but in fact its quite the contrary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best part is it involves all ages,â&#x20AC;? Halsey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The elderly in our town enjoy baking for it. We all get together at local businesses to (See, CHRISTMAS, A2)

Christmas lighting to be held for Jerry Rose By RACHEL MCGLASSON Calhoun News-Herald The village of Hardin will be hosting a tree lighting in memory of Jerry Rose, who passed away Jan. 26, 2017, because of his dedication to the village and his love of Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was [unexpendable] in placing all the Christmas decorations throughout town,â&#x20AC;? Danielle Hurley, Hardin village clerk, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jerry loved Christmas and it showed. In his honor there will be the tree lighting for a tree that was planted in [William Harmon] park.â&#x20AC;? Rose served at the Public Works

Director of Hardin for over 46 years and was a member of St. Norbertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church and served as a volunteer with Hardinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jerry did so much for the community and he was always there to lend a hand when someone needed it, whether it be during work hours or after,â&#x20AC;? Hurley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jerry Rose was a truly wonderful person and the village cannot thank him enough for all of his service and what he has done for them through the years. He is still sadly missed.â&#x20AC;? The ceremony is set to take place Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the William Harmon park in Hardin.

Christmas is Here! By HEIDI MOORE There is an old 1950’s cartoon that I really enjoy, called, “Christmas Comes but Once a Year.” It’s in color, but that’s not what makes it so special. I grew up with it, and I love its message of being joyful and of giving selflessly to those in need. In other words, having a deep down, true, Christmas spirit that comes from the wellspring of the heart. In the cartoon, the orphanage children have just awakened on Christmas morning, and, as all children will, they rush for their toys. The only problem with this is that the toys they’ve been given are old and worn out. The stuffing falls out of the teddy bear. The beach ball is patched and the patch blows off when the child is trying to blow it up to play with it. The rocking horse falls to pieces. One by one, the children’s toys fall apart, and the children, crying and lonely, wander back to their sad dormitory to their beds, crying on Christmas Day. But, then comes the rescue. A professor is driving by in a motorized sleigh and hears the children crying. He stops, slips up to the window, and sees the children crying in their beds

surrounded by their worthless, broken toys. He sits on the front step until he gets an idea. Then, he goes to work. Effectively, he raids the orphanage kitchen. He makes trains out of coffee pots and sleds out of boards and metal runners. He makes a Christmas tree (the only one of its kind) out of discarded umbrellas. He makes so many things out of everyday items, that, once he’s finished, there are no plates, cups, saucers, or anything else, left in the kitchen! But, the children are smiling – an ear to ear, real, Christmas smile! And that’s what I love about that 30 minute very old, cartoon! The song that the professor and the children sing matches the title to the cartoon: “Christmas comes but once a year/Now it’s here. Now it’s here/Bringing lots of joy and cheer/Tra-la-lala-la!” Wow! If only we could have Christmas spirit like that on Christmas Day and all throughout the year. I must admit that sometimes I do not have that kind of Christmas spirit. I get grouchy. The bills pile up, the Christmas lines are long, and the packages I have to send out are just too much on my limited budget. I try to have that kind of giving, loving, merry Christmas

spirit, but, oftentimes, I find that I am wading through what feels like a quagmire (to quote an eighteenth century saying) trying to force myself to have the Christmas spirit when all I really want to do is lie down, throw the covers over my head, and hibernate until Spring. How to have a Merry Christmas amid the chaos? Gratitude. Where is the gratitude these days? If we took the time, we could count all the blessings we have (and do not deserve), and that alone would take off so much of our needless stress. Family First. Now, that’s a hard one. Having gratitude for that family and for their traditions isn’t just being polite while harboring inward grudges. Family is everything. It’s more important than your work, your salary, and that promotion you so desperately want. Give your family and your kids all you’ve got. Years from now, when you’re old and gray, you’ll be glad you had those long-ago Christmases to remember and cherish. Don’t buy the lie that Christmas is all about presents and parties and busyness. It’s not. The best way to remain “un-Grinch-like” for Christmas is to give

it away. Buy presents for Angel Tree. Help out at your local soup kitchen. Pack an Operation Christmas Child Box. Involve your kids. If you can’t afford to buy gifts for everyone on your list, you could do what my neighbor does. She has ten kids and twenty-one grandchildren. That’s a lot to buy for, so she buys them breakfast; pancake mix, syrup, and muffins. That goes over quite well. And it’s easy on a very limited budget. Remember to take a Silent Night every now and then. Just in case busyness does catch up with your and you find yourself stressed, the bills piling up, and, after Santa and his sleight have come and gone, empty. Exhausted. And so very tired. Stop just to breathe, to be thankful, to wish someone you don’t like a Merry Christmas and expect nothing in return. Remember also Who is the reason for the season! Knowing that, makes all the difference in the world. Now that’s the true meaning of a very Merry Christmas. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Heidi Moore is a resident of Jersey County and a guest columnist for the Calhoun News-Herald.

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Determination equals success “At least I didn’t get skunked.” That is a comment that is frequently made after a long deer hunting season that nearly ended without a harvest. For some, it signifies a win in a make-believe world of deer hunting competition. We all should understand this because most of our lives are lived in the mindset of, performance determines pleasing and pleasing determines success, success determines greater benefits. For instance, if I perform well, my boss is pleased, and if my boss is pleased, I have success and whatever benefits come from that success. Those benefits can be money, position, or even a since of personal satisfaction. At school, if I perform well, the teacher is pleased. And if the teacher is pleased, I get the benefit of a good grade. Ultimately it is this. Performance equals acceptance and success. So, is there any wonder we have assumed God is this way as well? He is not. And your performance has nothing to


do with him being pleased with you. Your performance might be pleasing but it is not what pleases him about you. Let me illustrate. A four-year-old daughter comes to her father with a freshly colored picture. She shows it to him and he goes nuts over it. He says, “This is the most beautiful coloring sheet I have ever seen! I am going to hang right here so I can see it all the time. It’s wonderful.” But then he comments. “But see the sky? The sky is not green. It’s blue. And see the grass outside? It’s green, not red. And that cat? Not many cats are purple. They are more black or gray.” And those lines on the paper? Try really hard to color within those lines.” The daughter leaves and the next day comes back with another page where the sky is blue, and the grass is green, but the cat is still purple. The father brags once again about the masterpiece his daughter has brought him, and then reminds her about purple cats. Finally, the next day, she brings the

(Continued from A1) growth of those students with those assessments and [the assessments] are also supposed to be a good indicator of how students will perform on the SAT,” Sievers said. “Collecting that data on those students will allow us to, for example, if we see in freshmen year they are struggling with math scores then we can get them help in math. We’re trying to get a more precise overview of each child and that way we can help them identify what their deficits are. That way, they can be more prepared for junior year when they take the SAT.” The third goal is for the school to better utilize another assessment, the NWEA MAP assessment to help student growth. “We currently also assess high school students using the MWEA MAP assessments,” Sievers said. “Several schools in the state of Illinois use this system.” The school is aiming to not only assess students with this program, but also establish goals with students so they can assess their own growth. “Before, we kind of just assessed them and monitored their growth and tried to help in certain areas,” Sievers said. “With this we actually want to set goals with the students of what level they need to be at after their first assessment.”

final page back where every detail is perfect and kept inside the lines. Her father, once again, brags like he has been handed the Mona Lisa. And then the daughter says. “Daddy are you pleased with me?” The father pauses and is taken aback, and then realizes that he needs to correct this moment. He says, “Honey, I am not pleased with you because you color within the lines. I am pleased with you because you are mine. You are part of me and are loved by me even if your cats are always purple.” Christian friend, for many years now, you have been coming to God with your coloring sheet, thinking God will be pleased with you and accept you if you color within the lines – if you can keep all the rules and perform a certain way. It has become exhausting and discouraging, because you (nor anyone) can ever do that. God’s acceptance is not based on your performance but upon his grace. You are his, and the lines God has set are like the lines on that

Students are first tested with NWEA MAP at the beginning of the school year. Students are tested again after Christmas break and before the end of the year. With the new system, students will sit down with their teachers after the first assessment and identify areas they could improve in throughout the year and set goals to help achieve that. The final goal is to improve teacher-parent communication. “There’s always room for improvement here,” Sievers said. “As children grow, the communication gets less and we want to open that gap and keep those lines of communication open.” Sievers said teachers will utilize whatever form of communication works best for parents, including email, phone calls or texting. “We want to open that communication up more, whether it’s good news or not so good news,” she said. “Making sure those lines of communication are open both ways will be improved.” A tentative tax levy was presented to the board, but will not be approved until the Dec. 17 meeting. Sievers reported the proposed levy would be lower than last year’s, as the district’s bonds are lower than previous years. Sievers informed the board that the ongoing problem of who would run the concession stands, has been solved. Discussed at many previous meet-

coloring sheet. T h e y are not meant to be the measuring stick for acceptance, but they remind us that God has designed the world to function a certain way. And when we go outside those lines, we go against the grain of his design, and life hurts. Just as that father wants the very best for his daughter, God wants the very best for you – his daughter – his son. You. The one who is already his. The one he is pleased to call his own, even when our cats keep showing up purple. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years. He also speaks at game dinners and men’s groups for churches and associations. You can contact him at

ings, Sievers was searching for someone besides the school principals to run the concession stands. Now, the concession stand will be taken over by Warrior Pride and a teacher. The board discussed the possibility of solar energy panels to be installed. “This is very preliminary, and the board asked that we have representatives come in and give an overview of what the panels could offer,” Sievers said. “From there, the board will move forward and make a decision.” Sievers said one of the problems many schools face in the installation of solar panels is roof space or land space. This would not cause an issue for Calhoun District 40, however, Sievers said the board want further information before making the decision. Other action of the meeting included: Q Approval of an increase to substitute teachers pay from $75 to $80 for short-term substituting, and from $90 to $95 for long term. Q Approval of the risk management plan, which Sievers reported was the same as last year’s plan. Q Approval to renew the track co-op with Pleasant Hill. Q Approval to apply for a Tax Relief Grant that could provide additional funds for the district’s approximate six percent property tax rate.

The Calhoun Unit 40 Band hosted its Christmas Concert Sunday afternoon to a packed crowd. Such a wonderful concert. As I’ve said many times, our band director Cara Rojas is absolutely amazing! We are very lucky to have her. Her first year as band director at Calhoun, my son was a senior and my daughter a freshman. We had 14 students in the high school band. Just four years later our band had grown and we marched at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. We have since marched twice at Disney and traveled to New York twice. We currently have 134 band students in the jr. high, St. Norbert’s and high school. The concert finale was all 134 students preforming together “The Carol of the Bell’s.” It was absolutely amazing. As I’ve said before, Cara Rojas, we are glad you and your family now call Calhoun your home. The Calhoun Entertainment Company will hold their Christmas Concert Sunday Dec. 9 at The Presbyterian Hall beginning at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served afterwards. We have so much talent in our community. St. Norbert’s hosted its annual Advent Party Monday night. The kids enjoyed punch, cookies and making ornaments. Harlow Hayn turned 5 years old Nov. 30. She celebrated Saturday Dec. 1 with an ice skating party at the Loading Dock in Grafton. Jaelyn Hill turned 14 on Nov. 30. She celebrated with family and friends Saturday with lunch at Straight Home. Happy Birthday to Danny

Johnson Nov. 28. He was also treated to dinner with his daughters Elizabeth and Karmen and Granddaughter Gia. Happy Birthday also to Wade Gibson on the 29th. Elf School, which will be held Dec. 16 as part of the Christmas in Calhoun Celebration, is definitely going to be a big hit. They had such an overwhelming response that they added more hours.

Keith and Becky Baecht, Matthew and Samuel of Jerseyville, Matt and Lynette Eberhardt of Chenoa, Daniel and LeAnne Baecht and Connor of Springfield, Mo., Shirley Kennedy of Hillsboro, Mo. and neighbor Judy Klemme were Thanksgiving dinner guests of George and Yvonne Baecht on Saturday, Nov. 24. They also celebrated the birthdays of Daniel Baecht and Becky Baecht. Many more “happy ones,” Daniel and Becky! Lee and Elaine Mann hosted Thanksgiving dinner at their home on Thanksgiving. All the family members of Roy and Barb Hagen were present and enjoyed the wonderful dinner and afternoon together. As I am writing my news this morning Channel 2 reminded everyone that Dec.3, 2018 marks the 200th Birthday of the State of Illinois. On Dec. 3, 1818 Illinois became the 21st state in the Union. Happy Birthday, Illinois! Jerri Lynne Klemme’s “Flowers and Crafts” held an open house on Saturday and Sunday in Golden Eagle. Not only did everyone get to shop for her many arrangements, crafts and poinsettias, but also enjoyed sampling the huge variety of homemade cookies, cake, candy, cheese, salami and crackers along with turkey and roast beef sandwiches, iced tea and coffee. Many thanks to her for this annual event she hosts. A large crowd attended both days. Winner of the beautiful Christmas throw was Pat Jacobs. The Brussels Woman’s Club had their Christmas meeting, gift exchange and luncheon at noon on Friday

at the Golden Eagle General Store and Restaurant. Present were Elaine Eberlin, Judy Burch, Marie Held, Janet Schleeper, Jean Barton, Jane Herter, Kelly Mazzacavallo, Sandy Armstrong, Judy Klemme, Maggi Wester and Carol Sue Carnes. The entrée and garden salad were delicious, thanks to Sheila Jerls, and for dessert she even served ice cream with cherry topping and a pizelle cookie. The ladies also brought homemade cookies which they shared with fellow club members. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and hospitality of hostess Sheila. The club does not meet in January or February but will resume meetings in March 2019. Sorry that several of our members were ill and unable to make it that day. My visitors on Saturday were John Carnes of Edwardsville and Cyndi and MacKenzie Axford of Chesterfield, Mo. Many thanks for all they accomplished while here. John once again raked leaves, picked up broken limbs from strong wind we had lately and put up all outdoor Christmas decorations, etc. In the meantime Cyndi and Mackenzie decorated indoors putting up the tree and bow window decorations, along with other help I needed. With the grand opening that evening of the Golden Eagle Country Store Restaurant Wood Fired Pizza I treated my helpers to dinner there. Tried two different pizzas and they were both delicious. Many thanks John, Cyndi and MacKenzie for all your help on Saturday. After Caleb Carnes got off work Saturday, he, his sister Lydia and mother Julie Carnes visited with her parents Francis and Liz Toppmeyer and helped put up their tree. So great to have our kids help us in our older years, hope they know how much we appreciate them. George and Yvonne Baecht and John and Sue Kinchloe attended the Jerseyville High School Christmas Concert on Sunday evening. Matthew

Baecht, son of Keith and Becky Baecht played in the band, there were also great orchestra musical selections and various choral groups that entertained. Everyone reports a wonderful evening of great music. Marie Held received a phone call Saturday evening that her daughter and son-inlaw (Barb and Kerry Ward) in Taylorville were spared from injury and severe damage to their home as the major tornado passed through that evening. A neighbor’s tree fell and damaged a small area of their home and of course with power lines down there was no electric or heat. Many homes and businesses in its path were completely destroyed as many of you saw on TV. Our heart goes out to those who suffered injury and complete loss of their home. St. Mary’s Altar Society held their Christmas dinner and party on Friday evening at the church hall. Many thanks to Sarah Kinder, Yvonne Macauley, Gloria Snyders and Rosie Wreath for a wonderful meal and evening of entertainment. Over 25 members were in attendance for the event. George and Yvonne Baecht received word on Sunday night that their brother-in-law, Alan Syrcle, husband of Susan (Baecht) Syrcle of Griggsville, passed away that evening. Deepest sympathy to all the family. Arrangements are being finalized at this time. Birthday greetings this week to Patricia Kirn, Bob Kiel, Rosie Wreath, Leroy Zimmerman, Brent Kirn, Mike Halemeyer, Curt Peters, Ricky Hering and all others celebrating their natal day at this time. Happy Anniversary to Dave and Mary Kirn, Vince and Caroline (Burch) Stegman, Paul and Mary Lou Goetze, Roger and Michelle Hagen, Pat and Sharon Friedel, Carl and Pauline Eschbach and all other couples celebrating a wedding anniversary. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: As stated by musician Charlie Daniels “Only two things protect America, the grace of the Almighty God and the U. S. Military!”

Why is it that we feel the loss of a loved one more intensely during the holidays? Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tied to the fond memories we have of sharing this special time with family and friends. The shorter days and colder temperatures also have an effect: we are more likely to â&#x20AC;&#x153;hunker downâ&#x20AC;? inside and feel sadness, loneliness and grief more intensely. Here are some tips for coping with your grief: 1) Reach out to family and friends. Call

Hardin, Illinois

By Mary Crawford someone on the phone, talk and laugh. 2) Make plans to get out of the house. Go out for breakfast with a friend, or ride along to go and look at Christmas light displays. 3) Sing your heart out. Music has been proven to have a healing effect on your mind and spirit. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not comfortable singing out loud at church, sing in your car, or imagine that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Tony Bennett in the shower! 4) Brighten your home. We feel cheerier in bright sunshine or light. Try turning on a couple extra lights when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at home, or open those drapes to let the light in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth the few extra pennies on the light bill (or purchase energy-efficient lightbulbs). 5) Try a new hobby. Yes, the holidays can be busy times, but why not try a new hobby? Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time to pick up those unfinished projects or try something new. 6) Volunteer. If you absolutely dread being home alone, see if your church or another organization you belong to needs help during the holidays. Being out around people can help you focus on positive, good things happening around you. Grieving is a normal part of life: each one of us has experienced loss. Missing your loved one is normal and okay. Celebrate their memory and honor them by taking care of yourself!

Holding Our Tongues â&#x20AC;&#x153;The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered. Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Proverbs 17:27-28


e rarely regret holding our tongue, though we often regret speaking, especially when it is done hastily or in anger. Silence also has the virtue of being impossible to correct. There are plenty of opportunities to keep silent. When others are gossiping it is usually best to keep silent or to try to change the subject. When someone has spoken in anger to us or otherwise hurt our feelings, it is tempting to hit back with angry words, but your silence will show you to be the better person and perhaps convince the other person of their own sin. It is especially hard to hold our tongue when someone has said something about us that we know to be false. How much of our speech throughout the day is nothing more than an attempt to justify ourselves or present ourselves in a better light? In modern parlance, we are â&#x20AC;&#x153;virtue signalingâ&#x20AC;? when we try to correct otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s misperceptions. When I was

growing up I often heard the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-praise stinksâ&#x20AC;? whenever someone was going on about how great they were. Leave the praising of yourself to others, and let others be the ones to criticize, to gossip, or to engage in all the endless chatter that pollutes our lives. Consider using the time your silence has afforded you for more beneficial endeavors. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christopher Simon

Salt in the landscape

By KEN JOHNSON U of I Extension As weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already experienced this year, winter in Illinois commonly means snow and ice. Though plowing and shoveling are the primary means of removing snow and ice where they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanted, deicing salts also help prevent slick, hazardous conditions. While salt is great in its place, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so great for many things that may encounter it. Rock salt (sodium chloride) is the most common deicer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheap, effective, and plentiful but it does have some drawbacks. It is corrosive to both vehicles and concrete, and it can damage soil as well as plants. As rock salt dissolves in water, its ions (sodium and chloride) separate. These ions can cause damage in our landscapes in high enough concentrations. High levels of sodium can damage the structure of soil, preventing it from clumping and making it susceptible to compaction, in turn reducing permeability and aeration. High sodium levels can also raise soil pH. Nutrient imbalances can also be caused by high soil levels of sodium and chloride. These high levels can restrict plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; uptake of other essential nutrients leading to nutrient deficiencies. Chloride ions also can build up in the growing points of plants and become toxic, leading to stunted yellow foliage, leaf scorch, twig dieback and stunted overall growth. Just like the salt in your salt shaker, rock salt absorbs

water. As it holds onto water, there is less available for plants. This can create drought-like conditions for plants, even when there is adequate soil moisture. Salt spray, such as that spread by passing cars, also damages plants. Salt that lands on plant tissues can dry them out by pulling water out of plant cells. It can also enter the plant and accumulate in the growing tips to toxic levels. This most commonly occurs on the sides of trees facing a road and plants that are downwind. Many evergreen plants are very susceptible to salt damage, developing pale green, yellow, or brown foliage in late winter and early spring. Deciduous plants may suffer from killed or damaged buds and branch tips, which can lead to the formation of dense clusters of twigs, called witchesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; broom. Flowering plants may not bloom. If the damage is not extensive, plants may grow out of it. So how can you help prevent salt damage to your soil and plants? There are various steps you can take: Q Use salt judiciously, especially after March 1. Once plants begin to break dormancy, they become even more susceptible to damage. Q Limit salt applications to high-risk locations like steps, along with walkways and driveways on an incline. Q Finish clearing snow before applying salt. This will help prevent the movement of salt into the landscape. QSalt can also be applied

before a storm arrives. This helps prevent ice from sticking to pavement, making removal easier and reducing the amount of salt required. Q Avoid using pure salt by mixing it with an abrasive material such as sand, ash, or kitty litter to help with traction. For additional tips on preventing salt damage to your soil and plants, as well as some salt tolerant plants check out the Good Growing blog at go.illinois. edu/GoodGrowing.

Jerseyville brothers charged with drug-induced homicide By RACHEL MCGLASSON Calhoun News-Herald Brothers Derek Day, 23, and Darin L. Day, 32, both of Jerseyville are being held for allegedly supplying an Alton woman with the fentanyl that led to her death. The Days are both facing charges for the drug-induced homicide of 20-year-old Camille Alton, as well as controlled substance trafficking. According to reports, Alton took a dose of fentanyl on Feb. 18 of this year at a home on Humbert Road in Godfrey. The fentanyl she overdosed on was sold to her by the Day brothers. After taking the fentanyl, Alton was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital by individuals in the home with her. She died two days later.

Alton Police Chief Jason Simmons said an investigation was built over a matter of months, in which the cameras on the Clark Bridge played an important role, leading to the second charge of controlled substance trafficking. A drug-induced homicide is a Class X Felony and, if charged, the Days could spent six to 30 years in prison. The Controlled Substance trafficking charge is a Class 2 Felony and, if convicted, the brothers could spend six to 14 years in prison, with no probation possible. Darin Day is currently being held in Madison County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. Derek Day was already behind bars in a separate case when the charges against him were filed.

There’s still time to get a flu shot

If you haven’t received a flu shot yet, it’s not too late. While it’s best to get vaccinated against the flu in October, you can still get a flu shot. Flu activity is usually highest between December and February, although activity can last as late as May. “Even healthy people can get the flu,” Illinois Department of Public Health Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D., said. “And while healthy people may not suffer serious illness from the flu, they can pass the virus to babies too young to be vaccinated, people who have chronic illnesses, and others who may develop serious health problems like pneumonia. Before you get together with grandkids and grandparents for the holidays, make sure you not only protect yourself from the flu, but your loved ones as well.” During the 2017-2018 flu season, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates flu caused: Q 49 million flu illnesses – more than the combined populations of Texas and Florida. Q 960,000 flu hospitalizations – more than the number of staffed hospital beds in the United States. Q 79,000 deaths – more than the average number of people who attend the Super Bowl each year. Flu symptoms can include fever or feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headache, tiredness, and some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults. Flu is typically spread by droplets when someone with the flu talks, coughs, or sneezes. People can also get the flu by touching something, like a door handle, that has the

virus on it and then touching their mouth, eyes, or nose. On average, it’s about two days after being exposed to the flu before symptoms begin. However, you can pass the flu to someone roughly a day before you start experiencing those symptoms, and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctor visits, missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. It may also make your illness milder if you do get sick. Getting vaccinated is the first and most important step in protecting you and those around you against flu viruses. In addition to getting a flu shot, IDPH recommends following the 3 C’s: clean, cover, and contain. Q Clean – frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water. Q Cover – cover your cough and sneeze. Q Contain – contain your germs by staying home if you are sick. Influenza antiviral drugs can be a second line of defense for treatment of some who get sick with the flu. Many observational studies have found that in addition to lessening the duration and severity of symptoms, antiviral drugs can prevent flu complications. Because it is important to start antiviral medication quickly, high-risk patients should contact a health care professional at the first signs of influenza symptoms, which include sudden onset of fever, aches, chills, and tiredness. To find a location to get a flu shot in your community, check with your health care provider or local health department. You can also use the online Vaccine Finder.

Two charged in death of infant By CARMEN ENSINGER Calhoun News-Herald Charges were filed in Greene County Circuit Court Friday, Nov. 30, in connection with the death of a six-month-old baby that was found buried in a shallow grave in Carrollton Nov. 28. Greene County States Attorney Caleb Briscoe charged Jamia H. Ellis, 22, of Alton, with two counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Concealment of a Homicidal Death. Ryan Wheeler, 34, of Carrollton was charged with one count of Concealment of a Homicidal Death. According to the charges of murder, Ellis, on or about Nov. 2, caused blunt force trauma to the child knowing it would cause the death of the child. The Concealment of a Homicidal Death for both Ellis and Wheeler alleges that they concealed the death of the child by wrapping the body in a sheet, placing it in a trash bag and burying it in a wooded area behind the home in Carrollton. According to a press release by the Illinois State Police, on Saturday, Nov. 24, the Alton Police Department took Missing Persons Reports on Ellis and her six-monthold son. While attempting to locate the missing woman and child, law enforcement efforts were directed to the 100 block of East Cemetery Road in Carrollton. During this investigation, the woman was located alive. On the afternoon of Nov. 28, a search of a nearby wooded area was conducted and the

body of the baby was discovered and sent for an autopsy. On Friday, Nov. 30, the results of the investigation were turned over to the Greene County States Attorney for review and possible charges. According to an earlier report from the ISP, Ellis knew the owner of the home and both she and Wheeler have stayed at the home from time to time. At the initial appearance Friday morning, Ellis asked for a public defender and the court appointed Attorney Keisha Morris to defend her. A Preliminary Hearing has been set for Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. Wheeler’s preliminary hearing will follow at 3 p.m. Wheeler’s bond was set at $750,000 and he is also lodged in Greene County Jail. First Degree Murder is a Class M Felony punishable by a term in the Department of Corrections of 20 to 60 years. Concealment of a Homicidal Death is a Class 3 Felony punishable by a term of 2 to 5 years in the Department of Corrections followed by one year of mandatory supervised release or probation up to 30 months. “It is awful when any child dies, but when an infant suffers at the hand of those who are meant to be caring for them, it is truly heartbreaking,” Briscoe said. “I commend the work of the Illinois State Police, Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the Alton Police Department for committing themselves to seeking justice for children who cannot call or seek help, who are the most vulnerable, who no longer have a voice.”

St. Francis of Assisi hosts Thanksgiving dinner Volunteers with the St. Francis of Assisi Parish help box Thanksgiving meals during the Parish’s first ever community Thanksgiving meal, held Saturday, Nov. 24. The event was held at St. Norbert Gym in Hardin and was open to the public at no charge. A group of approximately 36 volunteers, headed by Nikki Simon, served around 80 meals in the gym and delivered about 60 carryouts to the homebound. Many sides and desserts, along with four 16 lb. turkeys, two hams and four roasts, were donated by the volunteers and various parishioners. The event was determined successful, and the parish hopes to repeat it again next year.

What’s Happening

25 years ago If the 1993 Calhoun Warriors’ football season were to be made into a movie, it would be “True Grit II.” After overcoming every kind of adversity involving a meatgrinder conference, virtually untested secondary and last of all, a 500-year flood, the Warriors to their second consecutive Class 1A football championship by defeating Sterling Newman Central Catholic 49-9, at Hancock Stadium on the campus of Illinois State University in Normal Friday. The weather conditions were not ideal for the Calhoun Warriors last Friday as they prepared to take the field in defense of their state football title in Class 1A. Sleet and freezing rain had fallen during the night and about two inches of slushy snow covered the artificial playing surface at Hancock Stadium on the campus of Illinois State University in Normal. The maintenance crew for the university removed the top layer of snow but exposed the sleet and frozen rain underneath. Temperatures in the low 20s caused the remaining moisture to freeze into a layer of ice. 50 years ago Danny J. Pohlman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Pohlman of Golden Eagle, is recovering from wounds suffered in action in Vietnam recently. Danny wrote his folks on Nov. 16 that he had received the Purple Heart and was recovering in the 12th Evacuation Hospital. He said he was alright and not to worry. Sp. 4 Ronald D. Foiles of Carrollton recently had a narrow escape from the Viet Cong in Viet Nam when his sampan was fired on and he and a companion dived into

the muddy waters and swam underwater to safety. The movie “How Sweet It Is,” with James Garner, Debbie Reynolds and Maurice Ronet, which is currently being shown, uses the 1953 Red Cadillac, which is owned by Keith Fulkerson of Saugus, Calif., son of Mrs. Lois Rogers of E. Alton, formerly of Calhoun County. 75 years ago Information was received Sunday night that Otto Meseke, 31, was killed in action in the battle of Italy Nov. 19. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Meseke of Golden Eagle. Otto had been in the Army almost two years and had been overseas several months. Following is a list of men called for military induction and they are to report at induction quarters Dec. 13: Albert Hattemar, Victor Edwin Waldhueser, Homer George Zigrang, Harold John Kraut, Lawrence John Bick, Raphael William Synders, John Jospeh Klunk, Elmer Albert Kress. Cpl. Jesse Lee Bell, of Bellview, is located some place in the South Pacific. Pfc. Edward Better, Camp Campbell Ky., was home on furlough last week with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Vetter of Kampsville. Morris B. Quiller, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Quiller, Hamburg, has been graduated from recruit training as honor man for his company at the U.S. Naval Training Station at Great Lakes. 100 years ago Again the Calhoun county jail is empty. The prisoner, Chas. Johnson has ‘flu’ to parts unknown. This makes twice that Johnson has broke jail. This time he left a letter behind saying he could have

Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum marks Mary Lincoln’s 200th birthday with special event Dec. 13

Mary Lincoln remains one of the most fascinating first ladies in history, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will celebrate her 200th birthday with special events on Dec. 13. State Historian Samuel Wheeler will highlight Mary Lincoln documents and artifacts in the library’s collection, explaining their significance to her and to history. Then he’ll interview Mrs. Lincoln (portrayed by Pam Brown) and they will take questions from the audience. The library will also display records officially recording Mary Lincoln’s burial in Springfield’s Oak Ridge Cemetery in the tomb where her husband and three of her children also rest. The records belong to the city of Springfield but are stored at the presidential library to keep them safe. The items Wheeler will highlight include: Q Her diamond necklace from Tiffany’s QAn invitation she wrote for her son Willie’s birthday party Q The fan she reportedly carried on the night of her husband’s assassination Q Documents related to the trial in which she was declared insane Q Selections from the library’s collection of letters written by Mrs. Lincoln, the largest such collection in the world. The free event takes place Dec. 13 at 12:30 in the presidential library (112 N. Sixth Street, Springfield, Ill.). It is part of the “Tales from the Vault” series that the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum offers in conjunction with the Illinois State Museum. The Q&A with Mary Lincoln will be available on the

library and museum’s Facebook page later in the day. In addition to appearing with Wheeler, historic interpreter Pam Brown will portray Mrs. Lincoln in the museum’s main plaza 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 2 to 3 p.m., answering visitors’ questions and posing for pictures. The book recording Mary Lincoln’s 1882 funeral will be on display in the library building, where there is no admission fee. It can be seen Dec. 11 through Dec. 31. The city of Springfield recently had the rare document restored, along with a separate book showing the 1865 interment of President Lincoln and his son Willie. Mary Ann Todd was born in Lexington, Ky, on Dec. 13, 1818. She grew up in a wealthy household and received an excellent education. At age 21, she began living with her older sister Elizabeth in Springfield, where she was courted by many young men. But the one she fell in love with was an awkward, unrefined lawyer named Abraham Lincoln. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is dedicated to telling the story of America’s 16th president through oldfashioned scholarship and modern technology. It also serves as the state historical library. The library holds an unparalleled collection of Lincoln material, as well as some 12 million items pertaining to other aspects of Illinois history. The Museum uses exhibits, eye-catching special effects and innovative story-telling to educate and inspire visitors from around the world. Learn more at

made his escape sooner but didn’t care about doing so on account of being so well fed and cared for. The letter Johnson left is as follows: Sheriff of Calhoun County, Well I am sorry to leave here, this way, but I just can’t stay away from my wife and baby any longer, if I can possibly get back to them. I supposed I will be caught and brought back but if I just get to see my wife and baby first I wont care so much, and you must give me credit for staying as long as I have because I could have left here anytime since I have been back as I came prepared to leave, that is why I showed that letter to the Cambridge police which made you people believe that I was foolish. I shall always be thankful for the good treatment I have had here and it is not the Sheriff’s fault that I am not staying, it is the county’s fault for not having a jail. Respectfully, Chas. Johnson
