IDOC recommendations may allow prisoner housing By bOb CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Calhoun County state’s attorney is awaiting word from the Illinois Department of Corrections regarding its recommendations which may allow the county jail to house prisoners. Though the county would not pay Jersey County to house the prisoners if it could house them in Calhoun, it would incur its own costs to man the jail with qualified guards with a 24/7 watch. During a regular meeting of the Calhoun County Commissioners Dec. 16, State’s Attorney Rick Ringhausen said he conferred with officials from the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) about the requirements to open the jail and got mixed opinions. “They decided to have the department of corrections attorney call to discuss that issue and I have not heard from them yet,” Ringhausen said. As of Dec. 23, Ringhausen said he had still not heart from IDOC on the issue. The state’s attorney said the issue boils down to how many people need to be on duty to man the jail and how much it could cost to pay those individuals who must be certified to guard the cells. Ringhausen said preliminary estimates indicate that constant watch of four prisoners – requiring at least two individuals on duty at all times – could cost the department around $160 per day for a single shift. He said adding a second shift would cost the department a heftier sum of money. “They recommend that. You can’t get a



firm answer on whether that’s required or not,” Ringhausen said. He indicated dispatchers could be trained to stand watch over the cells, but mandates require them to remain at their dispatching post while fulfilling those duties. He said a road deputy could fill in as the second qualified candidate to save money as well, if allowed by IDOC. “Assuming we can get by with that, then I think it would be financially worth our while to open at least two of the cells,” Ringhausen said. “You can still use two of them for storage if need be. It just hinges on [having a second shift].” If the county cannot staff the jail due to financial concerns, he said all the other recommendations for the jail are a moot point as it would not be operational anyway. The sheriff’s office is a relatively new building, built as an addition to the old school building in the center of Hardin which is the subject of a courthouse renovation project. The construction of the office – paid for with a grant – also included the construction of a small jail which has been used more for storage of evidence than prisoners. Commissioner chairman Doug Wilschetz said he would like to see the jail utilized for prisoners if possible. “It seems like such a waste to have it and not do anything with it,” Wilschetz said. Other recommendations by IDOC include having a day room and a recreation area outside for the prisoners. Ringhausen said the county may not need to meet those recommendations if the jail can be fit to house prisoners.

By RObERt L YONS Calhoun News-Herald The early winter’s bitter cold temperatures have made the region more welcoming for some annual visitors. Scott Isringhausen, urban fishing coordinator and former Pere Marquette site interpreter, said he believes this will be a great winter for bald eagle viewing. “It got so cold so early and we got ice, it just pushed the eagles into the area earlier. The potential is there to be a great year,” Isringhausen said. “I think this could be one of the best we’ve had in the last several years, to be honest with you. It’s setting up


like that.” The state park’s Bald Eagle Days programs resume Jan. 3, with six dates in the first month of the year. There will be 11 days of the program in February and two more in March. The program, led by Isringhausen, teaches participants about bald eagles while embarking on a viewing tour of the birds in their natural habitat. The bi-state region is the second largest home of wintering bald eagles in the United States, behind only an area encompassing northern California and southern Oregon. Alaska has the largest bald eagle population in the nation. “The eagles that we’re seeing here

are primarily coming from northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and Canada,” Isringhausen said. He said the giant birds, with wingspans up to seven and a half feet, draw visitors to the area from all across the United States. Local residents, however, don’t have far to travel to get a glimpse of the magnificent creatures. “People don’t realize how fortunate we are, this truly being the second best place in the lower 48 states,” Isringhausen said. “To have the bald eagle here in its natural habitat and setting, we truly are blessed.” He said the Riverbend area receives a shot in the arm from the tourism industry that picks up with the arrival

of the eagles. He said there have been studies done which give an average of how much each visitor spends at local businesses. “I don’t know a dollar number, but the economic impact is great,” he said. In 2013, Isringhausen became the Illinois Department of Natural Resources urban fishing coordinator for southern Illinois. But, he said IDNR hasn’t filled his position as Pere Marquette’s site interpreter, so he had the opportunity to lead the Bald Eagle Days program once again. “At the very least, I want to be involved in training that person [hired as site interpreter],” Isringhausen,

who has been with Pere Marquette since the inception of Bald Eagle Days, said. “But, I like it and am real excited about doing them again this year.” All programs begin at 8:30 a.m. and reservations are required. Because of Isringhausen’s role as urban fish coordinator, the eagle programs will only be offered on weekdays. For more information, contact Pere Marquette State Park at (618) 786-3323. Isringhausen said the park is hoping to have its live eagle cam up and running soon, also. Since 2011 a live video feed from a nearby eagles’ nest has been broadcast onto a screen in the Pere Marquette visitor’s center.

January Sievers steps into superintendent role Teachers have to answer to a new administrator in the Calhoun Community Unit School District No. 40 Jan. 1, and she is anxious to get into the thick of it. Kate Sievers, a Hardin native who started her teaching career in CCUSD, said she is excited to begin expanding her work environment to include the teachers and staff at the elementary school. “We have a wonderful teaching staff at District Unit 40,” Sievers said. “I look forward to working with all those people. They are genuinely good people who are here to make lives better for students, not only academically, but as a whole child, too.” A graduate of Calhoun High School, Sievers attended Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville where she completed a bachelor’s degree in finance and went on to finish a master’s degree in reading, as well.

logo that will distinguish and promote Calhoun County’s peaches, apples and perhaps other produce,” Reed said. “We are aware other sellers are using our quality name for their products. Anyone can make a sign that says Calhoun produce in quotes.”

Services (CMS). Barb Ledder, administrator for the Hardin facility, said she is honored and excited the rehabilitation center has been recognized for all the hard work she and her employees have put into providing the best possible care to their residents. A few years ago, she said the federal government began rating nursing homes with the highest possible score being five stars, an achievement met by the Hardin nursing home. “They look at all sorts of quality of care issues, staffing, care,” Ledder said. “They look at whether you’ve received any violations in the last six months … and so they ranked us pretty high.”

Farm Bureau looking to protect Calhoun name The Calhoun County Farm Bureau is looking into creating a trademark with a unique logo to designate true Calhoun County produce from impostors using the county’s name to sell their produce. Robert Reed, president of the Farm Bureau, said by creating a logo or seal, Calhoun county farmers – most notably peach, apple and other fruit growers – can protect the Calhoun name and what differentiates their product from others. “Calhoun County Farm Bureau is interested in meeting with Calhoun County producers to develop a unique C



February Kampsville cuts water to delinquent billpayers The village of Kampsville announced it will turn off water to those who have not paid their water and sewer bills to the city in three months due to a numerous lot failing to pay their bills on time. Millie Schumann said when she took on the position of village clerk, issues with water bill payments were terrible. She said very few people would pay them, but added eventually the village got to a sustainable position. However, in the past two years, she said the problem has gotten out of hand with numerous people failing to pay the bills on a regular basis. Schumann said she estimates around 50 households are delinquent, or have not paid their water bills in at least three months. “We have 16 that are completely out of control,” Schumann said, “and then I’d say 50 of the others. They come in once in a while, but they don’t come in like they should.” March Nursing center awarded five stars from CMS Calhoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Hardin was the recipient of a five-star recognition issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid

Board dismisses Kieffer in 5-0 vote After voting to dismiss Brandi Kieffer as Calhoun County supervisor of assessments during a special meeting March 12, the Calhoun County commissioners approved to hire former Jersey County Supervisor of Assessments Tom Glynn in an interim capacity at its regular meeting Monday. The vote to dismiss Kieffer was approved by all five commissioners – Doug Wilschetz, Phil Robeen, Larry Wieneke, Gene Breden and Pat Droege – and Glynn’s hiring was approved by all but Wieneke, who was absent from Monday’s regular meeting. Regarding the dismissal of Kieffer as the supervisor of assessments, State’s Attorney Rick Ringhausen issued a press release stating Kieffer was dismissed based “upon a failure to timely publish the notice of assessment changes on Dec. 31, 2012; failure to perform the (See, year iN review, A2)

Senate recognizes Calhoun Entertainment Company for 25 years The hours of rehearsals and years of dedication to an annual play all became worth it last weekend when the Illinois Senate recognized the Calhoun Entertainment Company for its 25 years of service to the community. Jerry Sievers, Calhoun Entertainment Company founder and musical director, said he was surprised when the award was presented to him before the show held in the Kampsville grade school gymnasium, adding it meant a lot to him. “It brought tears to my eyes. I was not expecting anything at all like this. It made me feel – it made me feel good,” Sievers said. April Kieffer charged with insurance fraud, three others charged Submerged in 25 feet of water, the Calhoun County sheriff’s office, with the aid of a dive team and conservation officers, retrieved a van from the Mississippi River believed to have been stolen in late December. According to court documents, Sherrie Brandie Kieffer, former Calhoun County supervisor of assessments, reported the 2000 Chrysler Town and County van stolen Dec. 29, 2012. Filed March 29 with the Calhoun County Circuit Clerk, court records indicate Kieffer was charged with filing a false police report of vehicle theft, as well as insurance fraud. According to those documents, on Feb. 19, 2013, Kieffer “knowingly obtained via deception, control over $3,198.50 … from the Nationwide Insurance Company by making a false claim on an insurance policy issued by the Nationwide Insurance Company.” Kristi L. Blumenberg, Zachary T. Blumenberg and Jeffrey P. Angel have all been charged with conspiracy to commit insurance fraud in relation to the case. Kampsville restaurant owner receives Patriot Award Nominated by one of his employees, the owner and operator of Kampsville Inn was issued a Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). Louis Hazelwood, owner of

Kampsville Inn located just off the Kampsville Ferry, said he is happy to receive the award, adding he did not think such a thing existed. “It is quite an honor, quite and honor,” Hazelwood said. “It surprised me.” Established in 1972 by the Department of Defense operational committee, ESGR was created with the intent of honoring those who employ individuals in the National Guard and Reserves. Nearly 5,000 people volunteer for the organization in 54 committees in all 50 states. According to the ESGR website, the Service Member Patriot Award “reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.” An employee of Hazelwood, Kyle Halsey, who is serving in Afghanistan, nominated Hazelwood for the award. Hazelwood said he made sacrifices to keep Halsey’s position open for him while serving his country. Illinois River flooding closes roads, endangers businesses Calhoun County Board of Commissioners Chairman Doug Wilschetz signed a disaster proclamation Friday, April 19 during an emergency meeting of the commissioners to discuss flooding of the county. Illinois signed a disaster declaration for numerous counties throughout the state, and Calhoun County was a member of that list. As such, the state will provide materials or manpower upon requests of locals through a chain of command that begins with the mayor. Monetary assistance only occurs if a financial threshold is broken and the president declares a disaster in the area. The proclamation signed by the county commissioner chairman will be in effect until April 30 unless it is extended by the commissioners. May Kieffer indicted with six counts of official misconduct Sherrie Brandie Kieffer was indicted with six counts of official misconduct for selling Calhoun County property for personal gain dating back to 2007, according to court records filed May 7. According to the court documents, Kieffer, former Calhoun County supervisor of assessments, sold real estate assessment records to First American CoreLogic between 2007 and 2013, except for 2012, for her own personal gain. The court documents state the alleged acts violate the Illinois Compiled Statute regarding official

misconduct by committing an act “with the intent to obtain a personal advantage for himself or another,” in excess of the individual’s lawful authority. On or about Oct. 23, 2007, Kieffer sold the records for $1,511.50 but in following years, that price increased to amounts greater than $2,500, reaching up to $3,534.65. Judge Richard J. Greenlief recused himself from the case May 7 and referred it for reassignment. Billy-Bob Products focus of reality show, filming in June He’s made millions selling fake teeth, novelty pacifiers and other gaff products, and now his life and business will be the focus of a television show scheduled to air later this year. Jonah White, chief executive officer of Billy-Bob Products, said he wanted to make a television show about his life after he was contacted by Mark Burnett Productions to film a segment of the show, “How’d You Get So Rich,” starring Joan Rivers. White said his lifestyle lends itself to broadcast television because it is extreme. In fact, entering White’s property requires opening and closing gates so the water buffalo, cows and other cattle don’t wander down Hamburg Michael Road off the 500acre plot of land, on top of which stands his log home. June Governor adds Calhoun to federal disaster area declaration request A little more than a month-and-ahalf after river flooding forced road closures, long detours and reduced business, heavy rains have led to even greater flooding and a request from Gov. Pat Quinn to declare Calhoun County a federal disaster area. On May 29, Gov. Quinn requested eight additional counties – including Calhoun and Pike – be added to the federal disaster declaration approved by President Barack Obama earlier in May. According to a press release issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) June 1, Calhoun County – along with the seven other counties requested by Quinn – was added to the federal disaster declaration, bringing the total number of Illinois counties declared to 33. The declaration is for severe storms and flooding between April 16 and May 5. Gene Stumpf, Emergency Services Disaster Agency coordinator, said without the declaration, the county would not have been able to pay for all emergency flood expenses from its budget. During the April flooding, the county highway department laid gravel on the highway south of Hardin

and built rock levies to protect businesses along the waterfront. Stumpf said the federal declaration will pay for 75 percent of the cost. Illinois House and Senate pass concealed carry bill The last state in the country to form a law for carrying concealed weapons passed a bill last week that could allow the practice through issuance of permits with required training. Illinois is the only state in the U.S. that does not have a concealed carry weapon law, and in December 2012, a federal court invalidated Illinois’ ban on concealed weapons, forcing Illinois legislators to draft a bill by June 9. At the request of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, that deadline was extended to July 9, offering Gov. Pat Quinn time to read through the bill before signing it into law. Quinn has 60 days from the time the bill reaches his desk to act on it before it would automatically become law, according to the Illinois Constitution. The Illinois House passed SB2193 Friday, May 24 by a wide margin in a 89 to 28 vote after which the Illinois Senate deliberated the issue, passing the measure in a 45 to 12 vote Friday, May 31. Passage of the bill through the Illinois General Assembly was monumental in establishing the law for Illinois. Calhoun County Sheriff Bill Heffington said the establishment of a concealed carry law will give some people the sense of security when they are alone. “If criminals can carry guns regardless, I think it’s a good thing that the innocent people be able to defend themselves, as well,” Heffington said. Kampsville Museum opens Friday After undergoing renovations and exhibit restructuring last year, the Kampsville Museum has been struck by two historic floods, causing administration to delay reopening until Friday. Carol Colaninno, education director for the Center for American Archeology which runs the Kampsville Museum, said the flooding may have caused some trouble for the museum, but said it inadvertently led to a historical aesthetic for the building. “After the first flood, we tore up the old carpet in the building,” Colaninno said, “and underneath the old carpet were the original 1902 hardwood floors.” With the carpet torn up, and the more than 100-year-old unfinished hardwood floors exposed, she said the museum building itself has become part of the exhibit. As an old general store the building has history of its own that Colaninno said she hopes can be further explored by museum staff.

ly increased since the last price increase in the 1990s. In Minnesota, for example, land has increased from an average price of $400 to $1,400 an acre since 1998, an increase of 250 percent. While the duck stamp price remains stagnant, the cost to conserve land and habitats that host waterfowl and other species has increased dramatically. At its current price, the buying power of the federal duck stamp has never been lower over its 79-year history. The Congressional Budget Office found that because the federal duck stamp is a user fee, such a price increase would have no net impact on federal spending. “Once again, sportsmen and women have demonstrated their willingness to pay for conservation by supporting a long-overdue increase from $15 to $25. With 98 cents of every $1 from duck stamp receipts going to conserve wetlands habitat, it is vital that the cost of the stamp keep up with inflation and land acquisition costs,” Hall said.

“The One”

Senate bill introduced to raise price of federal duck stamp A bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate Dec. 19 to increase the price of the federal duck stamp to $25. The current price of $15 was set more than 20 years ago, in 1991. “We appreciate the introduction of a federal duck stamp increase bill by Senators Begich, Baucus, Coons and Tester to meet very real on-theground wetland habitat conservation needs. We are committed to seeing this legislation signed into law and look forward to working with senators on both sides of the aisle to enact this,” said Ducks Unlimited CEO Dale Hall. Since its enactment in 1934, the federal duck stamp program has protected more than 6 million acres of wetlands ‚ an area the size of Vermont ‚ through expenditures of more than $750 million. This has contributed to the conservation of more than 2.5 million acres in the Prairie Pothole Region, including the protection of 7,000 waterfowl production areas totaling 675,000 acres.

Fields The old year slips into its silver silence, Within our hearts we whisper our good-by; For it has held some treasures for us all, Some tears, bright hope, gay laughter or a sigh. For life cannot produce its lovely flowers With only fair and cloudless skies above, It must be intermixed with sun and showers, As sorrow often is alloyed with love. So softly close the door of the year, It cannot ever open once again; And let a smile dispel your parting tear, As the rainbow shines across departing rain. The heart will long remember these lost hours, Lift up your eyes to greet the coming morn, Though precious are our memory’s pressed flowers, The New Year comes with hope and faith and song.

While it was a bit risky, there was no denying the beauty of sunlight dancing and reflecting off the ice glazed trees from ice that came through the area. Our roads in many places were slick so I made the call to cancel Sunday School and push the Children’s Christmas drama to Dec. 29. We still had church for those who wanted to make it and I was surprised to see half our congregation, even a few who drove in from Pearl and Kampsville in attendance. What a blessed service as we sang carols, I shared a message, and we participated in communion. We are also looking forward to our Family Fun Fellowship on New Year’s Eve beginning at 6 PM. Join us for soup, chili, and sandwiches as well as a fun time of games. We also want to say welcome home to Scott Browning who has come home after years of service to the United States Air Force. His wife Pam and two children Paige and Paxton I am sure are glad to have him home. Welcome home Scott. I would like to send a shout out for our special days coming up this week. Happy anniversary to Jeff and Michelle Bridges who celebrate it on January 1. Happy birthday to Nick Wright who celebrates on January 3. On our return from Quincy while driving through the rain, I noticed the words on the passenger side mirror: “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.” Despite all the years that I have notice those words, it was on this day that they stood out. I love the idea of a new year. It brings to mind a picture of a clean slate or new opportunities. 2013 has proved to be a difficult year for some, for others, it has brought joy and blessings, and maybe for a select few there has been an equal

balance of both. As we enter the threshold of 2014, the year 2013 is now behind us. We can either see it through the rearview or the side view mirror. However we look at it, it is now in the past. We cannot change history. We can learn from it, but we cannot change it. Maybe we do not look fondly on 2013 because of mistakes we have made. I want to present a different warning than the warning on the side mirror: “Objects in mirror are closer because we make them that way.” Too often we are guilty of magnifying the mistakes of the past. In doing so we find ourselves paralyzing our hopes, dreams, and faith because we fear that the mistakes of our past will get in the way or prevent us from accomplishing something greater. The wonder of God’s grace is that every mistake we have ever made has been forgiven and is in the past. Unfortunately there are people who forget that or simply we have a hard time in forgetting that. The past is past…keep it there. Too often we prop our excuses on the mistakes and failures of the past. Instead of saying yes, we allow the mistakes and failures of the past to rationalize our no. We are far from perfect and perfection with certainly is hard to come by while on this earth but we can continue to strive to be better. As 2014 comes in, I will place 2013 in my rearview mirror and move forward with renewed commitment, anticipation, and blessings. I will not allow 2103 determine my 2014. Happy New Year and I pray that it brings you life’s greatest blessings. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead. (Philippians 3:13)

SPORTS Lady Warriors finish third in Jerseyville Calhoun News-Herald


Wednesday, January 1, 2014 Hardin, Illinois

SaM ELLIoTT Calhoun News-Herald

Mike Weaver/Calhoun News-Herald

Calhoun freshman Grace Baalman posts up against a Hillsboro defender Saturday at Jersey Community High School. The Lady Warriors beat Hillsboro 66-56 in the third-place game at the seventh annual Jerseyville Holiday Tournament after going 2-1 in pool play, losing only to two-time defending and eventual champion Civic Memorial. Baalman averaged 18 points per game through Calhoun's four tournament outings and was named to the event's all-tournament team. The Lady Warriors (13-2, 4-0 Western Illinois Valley Conference) continue their season by hosting Brussels at 7:45 p.m. Friday at Calhoun High School.

The Calhoun High School girls basketball team rebounded from just its second loss of the season by winning three-straight games in two days to finish third at the seventh annual Jerseyville Holiday Tournament. The Lady Warriors' title hopes took a hit when Civic Memorial, the tournament's two-time defending champion, won a 75-42 decision Thursday on its way to a thirdstraight title. But Calhoun wouldn't lose again. "The girls did a good job bouncing back," Lady Warriors head coach Aaron Baalman said. "We let a couple bad decisions in that CM game turn into a 19-0 run and, for the most part, that second quarter did us in. But finishing 3-1 as a small school in the field — we’ve got to take some positives out of that." Emma Baalman scored 13 points to lead Calhoun against CM, which got out to a 45-19 lead at the halftime break. "Civic Memorial is just so quick and strong," coach Baalman said. "We just aren't at that level yet." The Lady Warriors earned their spot in the tournament's third-place game by winning twice in as many games to complete Pool B play Friday at JCHS. Calhoun's day began with a 47-27 win against Granite City in which freshman Grace Baalman totaled 20 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Kassidy Klocke added 19 points. Calhoun knocked off the tournament host by winning a 62-44 decision against JCHS later Friday. Grace Baalman led the way with another double-double, this time scoring 23 points and grabbing 16 rebounds. Emma Baalman added 20 points and classmate Sydney White finished with 15 and nine rebounds. The Lady Warriors were matched against Hillsboro in Saturday's third-place game after the Lady Hilltoppers finished second behind Southwestern in Pool A. Calhoun was forced to play without Grace and Emma Baalman for extended periods due to foul trouble, but Klocke's 23 points and seven assists helped the Lady Warriors win a 66-56 decision.

Lady Warriors sophomore Kassidy Klocke eyes the basket against Jersey Community High School Friday at the Jerseyville Holiday Tournament. Klocke was named to the event's all-tournament team as Calhoun went 3-1 and placed third at the eight-team tournament.

"Kassidy did a great job of taking charge with Grace and Emma out," coach Baalman said. "She has been emerging as the leader of this team." Klocke and Grace Baalman, who totaled 20 points and six rebounds against Hillsboro, were
