Village of Brussels plans Main Street improvements By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald Safety concerns for Main Street in Brussels will be a thing of the past if a street project focused on curb improvements and more visibility of the roadway fall into place. Dave Godar, project engineer from Sheppard, Morgan and Schwaab, said the village held an informational meeting at the beginning of January seeking feedback on the project and how the village should move forward.

Dave Godar Project Engineer

“The village received some grant funds to improve that road, and that’s what we’re looking at designing,” Godar said. “There’s not enough money to reconstruct the entire length of the road.” Godar said the project would begin at the stop sign on County Highway 1 and move east through town until it becomes County Highway 1 again. “The road itself has deteriorated pretty bad in some sections, so this will be reconstructed with pavement and should last a long, long time,” Godar said. He said one of the major problem areas of the road is the hill at Wittmond Hotel. He said the hill blinds drivers from oncoming traffic because of its steep nature. The new plan would address that issue along with others near the center of town. The project engineer said he wanted to start at the south end of the project and work

through town because the south end has more glaring safety issues than the northern part of the road. He said the most evident issue near the northern side of the project is located north of St. Mary Cemetery where there is a radical “kink in the road.” “We want to smooth that out with a curve,” Godar said, “and then reconstruct that section of road.” He said the meeting garnered many comments from the public, which he is using to amend the project plans. Initially, the proposal included a sidewalk on both sides of the road, but Godar said one of the comments made during the meeting raised concern a sidewalk on both sides would cause an issue with parking for businesses in town. Godar said the worry could lead to the elimination of the sidewalk on one side of the street. Removing the sidewalk from one side could also result in some money savings. He said the project will require the purchase of easements and right-of-ways from landowners to see its successful completion. After the proposal is amended and approved by the village board, it will be sent to the Illinois Department of Transportation which must review the plans and approve them before additional work can be done. After IDOT approval, the village can begin the purchase of easements and right-ofways for the project. The project engineer said he is amending the proposal based on the feedback provided during the public meeting Jan. 7, and will present the information to the village board at a later date. He said it is not likely there will be another public meeting dedicated specifically to the road project, but rather the issue will be discussed by the Brussels Village Board before it is approved and sent to IDOT. To provide additional feedback concerning the project or to learn more, call Godar at (618) 877-8700.

School board saves $19k annually on bus lease By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Calhoun Community Unit School District Board accepted an agreement with Central States Bus Sales for bus leasing which will save the district $19,000 each year during a meeting Jan. 22. Superintendent Kate Sievers said she felt the cost of the previous lease agreement exceeded what the district was able to afford and was more expensive than what it should have cost. “We did a search because we thought we were paying too much on our bus lease,” Sievers said, add-

ing the district’s three-year lease will expire this summer when the new lease will go into effect. A few months ago, Sievers tasked the finance committee to seek out prices from other companies seeking a savings in costs. She said three companies were interested in providing buses to the district, but ultimately, the district struck an agreement with Central States Bus Sales for $97,000 per year. Sievers said the previous agreement cost the district $116,000. Sievers said the reduced cost created some changes in services and bus offerings, but said they were minimal changes.

Savings on transportation costs are important, Sievers said, noting the state has been cutting back on transportation funding for schools the same way it has been cutting back on general state aid. The concerns about transportation led to the board voting against allowing a school in Beardstown from joining the Western Illinois Valley Conference (WIVC) for sporting events through the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). Sievers said the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) was unable to field enough players for a football team and would not be able to compete in the coming year. ISD dropped

Calhoun Community Foundation providing resources to community and visitors By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald Going into its seventh year of operations, the Calhoun Community Foundation (CCF) is still focused on providing services for the health and well-being of Calhoun County residents. The largest event organized by the foundation each year is the Calhoun County Quilt and Barn

from WIVC, leaving an open spot for another school to join. The board worried about the difficulties of transportation funding involved in adding Beardstown to the WIVC. Sievers said it would take an hour-and-a-half to travel just one way, adding the cost of gas would create additional financial struggles for the district. “Any time we pull in other people to the conference, transportation is an issue for us,” Sievers said. “If we were to pull in Beardstown, not only is it football teams, but basketball, baseball, track, all those other teams in the WIVC.” She said schools in the northern

part of the conference wouldn’t have the transportation issues due to their proximity to the school district, but the superintendent said other schools in the area would have similar issues. Sievers said the rejection of Beardstown does not mean WIVC will be without a team to round out the conference, but rather the conference would seek out another team to add to the conference. In other business, the district: n Approved its second and final reading of its board policies. n Approved the minutes of the previous meeting and the bills. n Discussed test scores at the elementary and middle school levels.

Hospital, IMA plan for summer merger By ROBERt LYONS Calhoun News-Herald Historically vital to each other’s success, Jersey Community Hospital and Illini Medical Associates are planning to merge this summer and continue as a single operation into the future. Leaders from both groups say the move will not only ensure both survive the rapidly changing healthcare arena, but will allow them to flourish. The two have long shared a relationship, with the Jerseyville IMA office sharing a parking lot with JCH. Dr. Michael McNear, CEO at IMA, said the services offered at IMA and JCH are natural complements to each other, but the merger will improve communication and coordination between the formerly two separate entities. “By our physicians being more involved here at the hospital, our goal is for both organizations to make sure we’re hitting the highest quality patient safety and patient satisfaction,” McNear said. “[Patients] will notice the improved quality and the improved safety, and the better all-around experience they’re going to have, whether it’s in the hospital or in the clinic. I think if you ask people in six months to a year, they’re going to say ‘Yeah, there’s definitely a big difference that took place.’” JCH CEO Jon Wade said the merger is not a cost-cutting measure, rather it helps streamline the delivery of healthcare to area residents. “We’re not going to save money. What we do as an organization is we solidify what we see as our market share, No. 1,” Wade said, noting the medical specialties offered by the hospital will be supported by IMA’s physicians. “Down the road, I don’t expect us to make many mistakes with directions we take as long as we’re in a good dialogue and doing it together. They [IMA] really have a pulse of what the community needs.” Aside from offering a more quality and attractive service for patients, the monetary benefit for both groups comes through collaboration of such things as electronic record filing, billing and medical supply purchases. Wade and McNear said jobs are not being jeopardized by the merger. “We really do not overlap. There isn’t an area, I

can think of, where we would duplicate that person’s job,” Wade said. McNear said many independent hospitals and physicians groups are struggling with constantly evolving mandates and reforms, as well as recruiting new physicians, especially in the rural setting. He said there is a shortage of young doctors willing to practice in small towns. “One of the biggest problems that we run into is that if we have one candidate that we’re really interested in, they may look at joining us or they look at joining a large health system in Springfield or St. Louis. The money those systems are able to offer them to start out is well above what we can,” McNear said. Wade said even without a relationship with IMA, it is imperative to the hospital’s existence that there be quality physicians available to the community. He said the merger should help make that happen. “Illini has a pretty good model and philosophy that is generated from their owners in the way they see the world and what can motivate some physicians. We’re more in a capacity to fund it, probably,” Wade said. Prior to deciding on the agreement with JCH, McNear said IMA was considering either maintaining its independence or possibly joining an existing healthcare system. Wade said the latter could have been a blow to the hospital. “Had they gone with a system, it would not have been in this community. I would worry about what that looks like for all of us,” Wade said. Because JCH is not-for-private and IMA is a private enterprise, there have been discussions with legal departments from both entities to ensure the transition is completed appropriately. “We’re going to pick a group as a third party that’s going to analyze this relationship so we don’t do anything wrong,” Wade said, noting unlike the hospital’s recent decision to end its maternity services, no state approval is necessary. IMA operates nine clinics throughout Macoupin, Greene, Calhoun, Madison, Morgan and Jersey counties. McNear said IMA will continue to foster strong relationships with the local hospitals in each of those communities.

Architect and owner’s representatives crunch numbers for savings By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Calhoun County Commissioners owners representative and architect for the courthouse renovation project of the old grade school located in Hardin has continued to work out savings in costs for the project. Bernie Loft, owners representative, said he and Tim Smith, Evan Lloyd Associates president, are in preliminary stages in trying to find ways to save the county money for the second stage of the project, estimated to cost $1.2 million. “We’re still trying to beat the bushes and try to save some money to get things started,” Loft said, noting the two met last week. Doug Wilschetz, commissioner chairman, signed an agreement with Delford Richter July 8, 2013 in which Richter donated $1 million to the courthouse renovation project, with the requirement it be named after his father, Marvin Richter, an instrumental figure in the agriculture community. The agreement set a payment schedule for the money to be issued to the county with the first two installments making their way to a special fund by the end of 2013. The final payment will be made in the summer of 2014, but during a building committee meeting last November, commissioners expressed interest in getting work started on the proposed courthouse prior to the final installment. Evan Lloyd drew up the plans for the building and split the work into a number of phases, the first of which was the construction of the new sheriff’s office. The office was an addition which opened a year ago for the sheriff,

his deputies and dispatchers. The building offers a jail, though the sheriff’s department has not found the funds to staff the jail, nor to provide the proper training for those individuals. The second phase was aimed at closing up the existing building with heating, ventilation and air conditioning to prevent the interior from deteriorating due to heat or cold. Completion of that phase would not allow any county offices to move into the building, but would cost around $1 million. During a commissioner meeting in November, Wilschetz said he would prefer to not have to pay for utilities in a building which would not be occupied. In finding ways to reduce costs, the commissioners also agreed to have some of the work completed by local workers, rather than pay a contractor to bring in outside help for the whole job. One of the largest aspects of the second phase would involve tearing down an addition onto the school building on the east side toward the south. A new addition would be built into the building at the same site which would include a staircase and restrooms. Loft said it is still quite early to know which parts of the project could be conducted by local help, noting he and Smith are more concerned about budgeting the project to get things started. The third phase of the project would prioritize county offices involved in court, and would place those offices on the second floor. Costing approximately $1.48 million, including contingency, the third phase would shape the second floor into a courtroom with judges’ chambers and a jury room. The state’s attorney’s and circuit clerk’s offices would also be com-

pleted. A hallway and staircase would connect the sheriff’s office to the second floor courtroom, providing a convenience for the sheriff’s department to bring prisoners to their court dates if they have not already bailed out. The final phase of the project would cost approximately $1.69 million and would renovate the first floor of the building for the county clerk, treasurer and assessor’s offices. The county clerk and circuit clerk office space is becoming too small to handle all of the documents and files it must store. The circuit clerk began using the old sheriff’s office to hold older files due to the waning space. In November, the commissioners expressed interest in pursuing the second phase of the project in the spring of 2014, and working toward finding more funds to complete the rest of the project.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ urban fishing coordinator, Scott Isringhausen, is looking for items to add to an exhibit on the history of fishing. The exhibit will travel with Isringhausen to sites throughout southern Illinois, helping present the evolution of the activity to young audiences.

For more information on how to donate items, contact Isringhausen at Pere Marquette at (618) 786-3323.

CCF (Continued from A1) if they align with that, and if it’s generally something that will benefit the community, it’s pretty open-ended,” Helbig said, regarding grant availability from the nonprofit. But Helbig said the foundation is also introducing new programs like that of the step-on guides for tour buses that visit the county. Interested individuals who can relate the history of the county and point out the more unique parts of the area join tour buses as they travel through the county to give people a better understanding of the community.

“Over time, we learned people were very interested in the county, but they didn’t know the points of interest and things like that,” Helbig said. Helbig said those on the bus likely won’t be able to visit every point of interest within the county, so the guides offer a reason for people to revisit Calhoun County to see things they missed along the way. She said repeat visitors already make their way to Calhoun after visiting the quilt tour. Though the foundation has seen great promise from the step-on guide program, she said the non-profit hasn’t made a strong push in promoting it.

With that push for step-on guides, Helbig said the foundation is also seeking additional volunteers to help out. “It’s been a lot of the same people for a long time, and we’d really love to have more people engage with us,” Helbig said. Those interested in the volunteer opportunities with the Calhoun Community Foundation can contact Helbig by emailing mlhelbig@ gmail.com or any other member of the foundation.

How to keep your kids active during the winter months As the holidays wind down, so do the temperatures. As a parent, you know your kids can get restless in the winter months while they're cooped up inside. It's tempting to let the tablets and video games provide hours of entertainment, but it's important that kids stay active to keep their minds and bodies healthy. With a little creativity, you can keep your kids moving and prevent the winter blues. Here are some ideas: Take out some throwback games After hours of being indoors, kids will quickly get bored of their own games and toys. Take this opportunity to teach them games from your childhood. Create an indoor hopscotch court with some tape or break out that old board game from the attic. Make up new rules to refresh the games and make them original to your family.

Record the game ideas in a notebook or binder so your kids can easily pick out a fun activity on the next snow day. Cook together Cooking is a great activity because the whole family can get involved. Assign everyone a job, like peeling, mixing or measuring. Kids can even practice their reading skills by reading the recipe aloud from a cookbook. Cooking with children also encourages them to try new foods because they've had a hand in making the finished product. Tackle that big project You may have spring cleaning plans, but get a head start on that big cleanout project this winter. Get the whole family involved in reorganizing the garage or painting the guest room. Go through old boxes or pictures with your kids

and share family memories along the way. Give your kids different tasks and let them be "in charge" of different parts of the project. Once the project is complete, you will all feel satisfied that you worked together and checked a big to-do off the list. Go on an indoor adventure Sometimes the cabin fever is too much to bear and you have to get out of the house. As long as the weather allows for safe travel, bundle up the kids and hop in the car in search of an indoor adventure. Find an indoor pool at a local recreation center. Take a trip to an indoor ice skating or roller skating rink. You can also start a bowling tournament with other families from school or the neighborhood. After the chilly trip outside to the car, you'll all be longing for your warm house in no time.

Flip-flops and snow don't mix: Winter foot-health advice The holidays are over, but most regions of the country face a few more months of winter. Whether you're slogging through deep snow and sub-zero temperatures in the north, or contending with dampness, chill and muddy conditions in the south, it's important to take care of your feet all winter long. You'll want them to be healthy and ready for action when spring finally arrives. Most Americans will have walked 75,000 miles by the time they turn 50, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. Is it little wonder, then, that the APMA's 2010 foot health survey found that foot pain affects the daily activities - walking, exercising or standing for long periods of time - of a majority of Americans? "Each season presents unique challenges to foot health," says Dr. Matthew Garoufalis, a podiatrist and APMA president. "Surveys and research tell us that foot health is intrinsic to overall health, so protecting feet all year long is vital to our overall well-being." The APMA offers some advice for keeping feet healthy in common winter scenarios: n Winter is skiing and snowboarding season, activities enjoyed by nearly 10 million Americans, according to the National Ski Areas Association. Never ski or snowboard in footwear other than ski boots specifically designed for that purpose. Make sure your boots fit properly; you should be able to wiggle your toes, but the boots should immobilize the heel, instep and ball of your foot. You can use orthotics (support devices that go inside shoes) to help control the foot's movement inside ski boots or ice skates. n Committed runners don't need to let the cold stop them. A variety of warm, light-weight, moisture-wicking active wear available at most running or sporting goods stores helps ensure runners stay warm and dry in bitter temperatures. However, some runners may compensate for icy conditions by altering how their foot strikes the

ground. Instead of changing your footstrike pattern, shorten your stride to help maintain stability. And remember, it's more important than ever to stretch before you begin your run. Cold weather can make you less flexible in winter than you are in summer, so it's important to warm muscles up before running. n Boots are must-have footwear in winter climates, especially when dealing with winter precipitation. Between the waterproof material of the boots themselves and the warm socks you wear to keep toes toasty, you may find your feet sweat a lot. Damp, sweaty feet can chill more easily and are more prone to bacterial infections. To keep feet clean and dry, consider using foot powder inside socks and incorporating extra foot baths into your foot care regimen this winter. n Be size smart. It may be tempting to buy pricey specialty footwear (like winter boots or ski boots) for kids in a slightly larger size, thinking they'll be able to get two seasons of wear out of them. But unlike coats that kids can grow into, footwear needs to fit properly right away. Properly fitted skates and boots can help prevent blisters, chafing and ankle or foot injuries. Likewise, if socks are too small they can force toes to bunch together, and that friction can cause painful blisters or corns. Finally - and although this one seems like it should go without saying, it bears spelling out - don't try to tip-toe through winter snow, ice and temperatures in summerappropriate footwear. "More than one news show across the country aired images of people in sneakers, sandals and even flip-flops during the severe cold-snap that hit the country in early January," Garoufalis says. "Exposing feet to extreme temperatures means risking frostbite and injury. Choose winter footwear that will keep your feet warm, dry and well-supported."

How health care reform could impact your tax returns this year and next Several key tax law changes in the Affordable Care Act have been implemented in 2013 and 2014. The impact of those changes on federal tax returns due April 15, 2014 and 2015 hinge mainly on your household's adjusted gross income (AGI) and health insurance situation. "The impact on this year's federal tax returns is mainly limited to taxpayers in higher income brackets and those with high unreimbursed medical expenses," says TaxACT spokesperson Jessi Dolmage. "The health insurance mandate starts to be enforced on tax returns filed in 2015." Changes for tax returns due April 15, 2014 Taxpayers with a modified AGI of $200,000 or more in 2013 ($250,000 if filing jointly, or $125,000 if married filing separately) will pay an additional 3.8 percent tax on investment income, such as interest, dividends, capital gains, rental and royalty income. The 3.8 percent tax is in addition to the tax you already pay on investment income. Your investment income may be reduced by expenses that can be allocated to your investment income, such as investment interest expenses, advisory and brokerage fees, and rental and royalty expenses. The amount may also be reduced by state and local income taxes that can be allocated to investment income items.

Those same taxpayers also started paying an additional 0.9 percent Medicare tax on wages and compensation in excess of $200,000 in 2013. The tax is automatically withheld from employee wages so you'll simply need to report the amount in Boxes 5 and 6 of your Form W-2 on your tax return. The tax for business owners and the self-employed will be calculated using figures on Schedule SE. Taxpayers who itemize must now meet a higher floor to deduct unreimbursed medical expenses. The threshold has increased to 10 percent of your AGI. If your 2013 AGI is $50,000, for example, you can only deduct medical expenses that exceed $5,000 ($50,000 X 10 percent = $5,000). If you're age 65 or older, the threshold remains at 7.5 percent. "You can easily and confidently navigate these changes with free online, download or mobile tax solutions," says Dolmage. "The program will guide you through each change and help maximize your credits and deductions." Health insurance changes for tax returns due next year If you purchase health insurance through a state or federal marketplace, you may qualify for the advanced premium tax credit. The credit will be paid directly to your insurance company in most cases, resulting in lower monthly premium costs.

If you prefer to pay your entire premium, you can receive the credit as a refund when filing your federal tax return due April 15, 2014. "TaxACT will reconcile the credit with your income after you enter all of your information," says Dolmage. "You may receive a larger credit or have to pay back some or all of the credit if your actual income is more or less than the amount you estimated when purchasing insurance." If you don't have minimum essential health insurance for three or more consecutive months in 2014, you may pay a penalty on your federal tax return due April 2015. The penalty amount depends on the number of months you're uninsured, household income and the number of uninsured adults and children in the household. The penalty will be 1 percent of your 2014 income or $95 per person, whichever is higher. The penalty for uninsured dependents under the age of 18 is $47.50 per child, up to $285 total per family. TaxACT provides health-related tax guidance plus HealthWatch, a detailed analysis of the potential impact of the Affordable Care Act on your taxes and health insurance for 2014.

Illinois Farm Bureau proposals shape American Farm Bureau Federation policy Voting delegates at the 95th annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) approved Illinois Farm Bureau’s policy submittals to protect the proprietary data rights of farmers and to prevent certain changes to AFBF’s renewable fuels policy. Rapidly-advancing precision agriculture has enabled farmers to collect data on yields, soils, inputs applied, and other variables. These advances in data collection hold the potential to be a very beneficial management tool for farmers and agriculture companies. However, control of the data and its uses are of growing concern to farmers. IFB’s data policy, which was a new policy submitted and adopted by the delegates, requires AFBF to support efforts to better educate farmers and ranchers on data collection, and support the rights of farmers who provide their data to agricultural companies. “Proprietary data collected from

farming and agricultural operations is valuable, should remain the property of the farmer, and warrants protection,” said Rich Guebert, Jr., president, Illinois Farm Bureau. “The policy Illinois submitted to the AFBF Resolutions Committee, which was subsequently adopted, encourages protocols and calls for compensation to farmers whose proprietary data is shared with third parties.” Additionally, IFB delegates helped to block submitted changes to AFBF’s RFS policy, which would have eliminated renewable fuels tax incentives for biodiesel and cellulosic ethanol as well as federal incentives for gas stations to install blender pumps. “We understand as an organization that any type of federal tax incentives must be justifiable to the tax payers,” said Chris Hausman, IFB delegate and district 11 director, IFB. “We believe the old blender’s credit did serve its purpose,

so when it expired, we accepted that. But cellulosic fuels are still in their infancy stage and still need help, including blender pumps and infrastructure. Until that industry matures, we feel it’s going to need help.” The AFBF annual meeting took place Jan. 12-15 in San Antonio. An estimated 7,000 people from 50 states and Puerto Rico attended, including 362 farmer and rancher delegates who voted on grassroots policies and policy amendments. The Illinois Farm Bureau is a member of the American Farm Bureau Federation, a national organization of farmers and ranchers. Founded in 1916, IFB is a non-profit, membership organization directed by farmers who join through their county Farm Bureau. IFB has a total membership of more than 400,000 and a voting membership of more than 82,000. IFB represents three out of four Illinois farmers.

Many more “happy and healthy ones” Carol. 32 Sunday evening I was a dinner guest of Marie Held and for dessert we enjoyed the birthday cake Carol Stepanek sent for us. Many thanks to both of you. Congratulations to Hannah Carnes, daughter of John and Julie Carnes of Edwardsville on having a 4.0 Grade Average and on the Dean’s List for the Fall Semester at Illinois State University in Normal, IL.

Now that our kids are growing up, it has become harder and harder to keep things out of reach. Namely sweet snacks. Some people call them junk food, but doughnuts, cookies, and cakes in my humble opinion are not junk. They are delicious. They taste good. Junk is what you throw away and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups do not qualify as deserving of being thrown away. Once we left a box of doughnut on top of the microwave, which sits on top of the counter. Our three-year-old son is not only growing up, he is growing smarter. Went to the bathroom to grab the step stool from the bathroom and somehow managed to reach the Krispy Kreme box and ate the last two of the chocolate iced doughnut (my personal favorite) for breakfast while I was busy in school work. So you can imagine the horror to see my son come sit beside me with chocolate smeared on his face and shirt and hands and counter and step stool…well you get the picture. We realized we needed to find a better hiding spot. In our pantry, on a high shelf far from the

Barwick Sometimes God picks the flower That is still in full bloom; Sometimes the rosebud’s chosen That we feel He’s picked too soon. Sometimes the flower is fading With petals floating down, But God knows the perfect time To gather flowers from the ground. There is a heavenly garden In which God takes great pleasure Because He’s placed within it The loved ones that we treasure. He walks among the blossoms Giving them eternal rest, And I know that it must please Him Because He chose our very best.

■ Blessings from Belleview We had our first ACTS 2:42 fellowship this past Sunday night at the church and had an excellent turnout. We also enjoyed a great Sunday morning service at BCC. We continue to be grateful for the growth that we are experiencing. Our leadership team is prayerfully considering a huge project in the future and has opened up a building fund. We are excited about what lies ahead for the future of BCC. My children are animals! Now before you go off on a fit, let me explain. Those with cats and dogs will know what I mean. Have you ever gone into the kitchen to open up a bag of potato chips only to find your dog sitting nearby with her head curiously tilted towards the side and the tail swiftly wagging hoping that the crinkling sound of a bag being opened means doggie treats are coming? How about the sound of a can opener? Without fail, a cat will do figure eights while brushing against your legs at the first sound of a can opener and your kitchen becomes an obstacle course with the goal of not tripping on the one obstacle in the way…your cat.

■ Batchtown News

prying hands even when they are on a footstool, you will find the treasure of sweet food stashed and safely kept….for now. Now back to the original point. My children are animals. The other day, I quietly peeked around the corner of the kitchen into the living room to see all three quietly sitting on the couch watching their favorite cartoon show. Ensured that they had not seen me, I walked to the pantry and pulled out a bag of Oreos (my favorite cookies). I quietly opened the bag and pulled out four cookies. I quietly placed the bag back into its place and turned around. Immediately my jaw dropped. They had managed to hear the crinkling of an opened package and curiously came to investigate. The same goes for cooking. Like cats at the sound of a can opener, they do figure eights at your legs and turn your kitchen into an obstacle course. Yes, parenting is an adventure and it is not one that I will trade for anything. Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (Psalm 127:3)

Hello everyone. Are you frozen yet?? Sure will be glad when this “cold snap” is over. Have some great news. Went to my cancer doctor, Dr. Tan, last Tuesday, and the results of the scan I had two weeks ago Monday, shows that none of the cancer had grown, except for one small area. He put me back on the pills that I had not taken for seven months. Wednesday, I got a call from the radiation doctor’s nurse making appointments for me

to have more radiation. Feb. 5, I go for another scan, and on Feb. 21 I go for more radiation. Again, I want to thank all of you for your prayers and concern for me. Redeye and I got flu shots last Thursday, and I started back on the cancer pill last Tuesday. Friday evening I started feeling ill, and have been in bed. Don’t know if it was the flu shot or the cancer pill, or a combination of both. Friday granddaughters,

Sarah and Mary, great grandkids Charlotte and Sawyer from Metamora came to visit and we enjoyed lunch at The Inn. Good luck and God speed to Jake Hendricks, son of Grant and Diane, of Carrollton. He graduated college and has enlisted in the Air Force. And how was your week?? Better than mine, I hope. See you next week.

Medicare Advantage at risk for seniors and disabled Nearly 15 million seniors and people with disabilities are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan in this country. That number adds up to almost one third of the total Medicare population. Some provisions in the new Affordable Care Act (ACA), if implemented, could jeopardize Medicare Advantage benefits for each and every one of those 15 million Americans. While Medicare Advantage benefits have already been reduced, they now face additional cuts, as much as $200 billion dollars over the next 10 years. Seniors and the disabled are expected to bear the brunt of these cuts, reducing the benefits they receive. "Medicare Advantage has allowed us to provide far better overall care to our patients," says Dr. Donald Rebhun, HealthCare Partners medical director. "And that level of care is at risk if these additional cuts go through." According to the Coalition for Medicare Choices, Medicare Advantage is a health benefits program available to individuals who are 65 or older or those with permanent disabilities. The coverage is provided through private health plans rather than the government and is required to meet or exceed the standards set by the original Medicare program. In addition to hospital and physician coverage, Medicare Advantage plans often include other benefits such as prescription drug, vision, hearing, dental, fitness, mental health and management of chronic illness. The proposed cuts could mean higher out-of-pocket costs, limited choice of doctors, fewer plans managing chronic conditions and fewer plans offering dental/vision coverage and enhanced wellness/fitness services. Data from the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey shows that Medicare Advantage plans continue to be a vital source of coverage for lowincome and minority beneficiaries. For example, 31 percent of AfricanAmerican Medicare beneficiaries

and 38 percent of Hispanic beneficiaries were enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans, and 41 percent of Medicare beneficiaries with Medicare Advantage plans had annual incomes of less than $20,000. These programs are particularly critical to the well-being of thousands of low-income individuals who may not qualify for Medicaid and would therefore lack access to chronic disease management services. Because of these cuts, out-of-pocket costs for seniors and individuals with disabilities could also rise and premium-free comprehensive drug coverage would be in jeopardy.

"Thanks to the funding we receive from our risk-based contracts, we have developed creative and innovative programs and services that have delivered better clinical outcomes. These cuts will directly impact the care we can provide to our patients," says Rebhun. If you or a loved one has a Medicare Advantage plan, take time to research the funding cuts and reimbursement changes. Make your voice heard and tell your federal and state representatives to stop further cuts and continue to protect your benefits. To reach your representatives, visit ProtectMyMA. com/Today.

street. Keep these tips in mind whenever you cross the road: 1. Put devices down, look left, right and left again, listen and make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. 2. Remember to watch out for cars that are turning or backing up because visibility is limited. When possible, walk on sidewalks or paths and cross at street corners with traffic signals and crosswalks. 3. Be aware of others who may be distracted and speak up when you see someone who is distracted. 4. If you need to use a cell phone, stop on the sidewalk and find a safe area to talk. If you are wearing headphones, pull them down before you cross the street. 5. Driveways and parking lots can be especially dangerous because pedestrians walk close to moving cars. Turn off devices in places where cars are going in unexpected directions, like backing out of a parking spot or turning out of a driveway. Finally, teens aren't the only ones who are distracted. Being a responsible driver means eliminating distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road, too. Be extra aware of pedestrians in residential areas and school zones. Look for bikers, walkers or runners who may not be immediately visible or may step into the street unexpectedly. In memory of Christina and all those who have been killed or injured while crossing the street, Safe Kids and FedEx launched the Moment of Silence campaign. Participate by pledging to put your device down and pay attention when crossing the street. Watch the video and learn more about the Moment of Silence campaign at safekids.org/silence.

From dating to driving to curfews, there's a lot to worry about if you have a teenager. You want to keep your child safe and likely have talked about distracted driving and avoiding texting while behind the wheel, but technology can be distracting while walking, too. More teens are plugged in and tuning out to the world around them. An alarming 39 percent were observed typing on a phone, and 39 percent were wearing headphones while crossing the road. One in five high school students and one in eight middle school students cross the street while distracted by things like music, texting and digital games, according "Teens and Distraction: An In-Depth Look at Teens' Walking Behaviors," a report from Safe Kids Worldwide made possible with support from FedEx. The study observed 34,000 students nationwide crossing streets in school zones. Crossing the street while distracted by technology can mean the difference between life and death. In 2012, Christina Morris-Ward, a 15-year old girl in Montgomery County, Md., was killed while crossing the street because she was distracted by headphones and a cell phone. While teens use their favorite technologies every day, it's important for parents to encourage them to put down their devices when crossing any road. You may remember the early years of reminding your youngster to look both ways before crossing the road. Now that your children are teenagers, it's time to have the talk again, but with a slightly different approach. Talk to teens about being responsible pedestrians by putting down mobile devices while walking and remind them of the importance of looking up, listening and making eye contact with drivers when crossing the street. And set a good example by putting your own devices down when driving or crossing the

The Age of Anxiety We live in perilous times. Rogue states with chemical or atomic weapons, fanatical terrorist groups spreading fear and hatred across the globe, and technology that changes too quickly for anyone to keep up with it are all part of our modern world. Our fears are stoked by the modern media's 24/7 news cycle and its insistence that something terrible is just around the corner. Even those who are not particularly tuned into the news are anxious; there is a certain anxiety that comes with our modern technology. The noise of the cell phone ringing is like an alarm going off and it's often just as startling. The ping of your computer telling you that you have a new message pushes the

same anxiety button, and since our phones allow us to be constantly connected we are now living constantly with alarms, buzzers and a sense of time urgency. So, what can we do about all of this? A first step might be to choose more soothing ring tones or just to turn the computer and phone off for extended periods of time. We should also take time out of our busy schedules for solitude and quiet time, a time when we might commune with God or nature and our souls can be at rest. God does not want us to be anxious; be in His presence and trust in the Lord. – Christopher Simon

Landmarks include Mount Pilatus, Verona, St. mark’s Square, Doge’s Palace, Sisting Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Roman Forum and Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Notre Dame, and the Louvre.

The trip is open to those who are 16 years or older as of June 5, 2015 (12-15 years may travel with an adult guardian) and can include anyone in the community who is willing to seize the opportunity to travel abroad. If you are interested in being a part of the next great trip, you can attend an informational meeting at 6pm on February 26th, March 24, or April 28 in the Calhoun High auditorium. You may also contact Lori Mortland at 5762229 or lmortland@calhoun40. net with questions.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) will accept applications beginning Jan. 24 for the state’s Park and Recreational Facility Construction (PARC) Grant Program. The program will provide grants to eligible local governments for acquisition, development, construction, rehabilitation or other capital improvements to park and recreation facilities in Illinois. For the current Fiscal Year (FY) 2014, a total of $25 million in grants are available through funding provided by the Illinois Jobs Now! capital program, an initiative of Governor Pat Quinn. The maximum grant award for qualifying projects for FY14 is $2.5 million. The IDNR will accept applications from qualifying units of local government from Jan.24 through March 10, 2014. “Public parks and open space shouldn’t be a luxury. Everyone has the right to enjoy recreation opportunities safely and locally. The investments made through PARC funds are vital to the economies and health of local communities and their residents,” said IDNR Director Marc Miller. “I want to thank Governor Quinn for making this long-term investment in local parks and recreation that will pay long-term dividends for Illinois communities.” The PARC Grant Program can fund bondable, bricks and mortar projects that include demolition, site preparation and improvements for indoor and outdoor

Photos must be submitted though our online entry form by 4 p.m., March 12. Voting will begin on Friday, March 14, and end on Friday, March 21 at 4 p.m. The winning snowman will be announced Friday, March 21 and the photo will be published in the March 26 edition of the Calhoun

recreation facilities, reconstruction, improvements and expansion to existing facilities, and new construction. Projects involving land acquisition for construction of new or expansion of existing indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, and for open space and conservation purposes, are also eligible. Illinois previously invested $50 million in PARC grants for park districts and other local government projects in 2011, the first year of the program. The PARC program will reimburse grant recipients up to 75 percent of approved project costs (up to 90 percent reimbursement will be available to local governments defined as disadvantaged). The PARC grant program does not replace the annual Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development grant program (OSLAD). PARC projects must be “bondable” according to state guidelines, while OSLAD projects do not. Eligible OSLAD projects include limited infrastructure costs by rule, and the PARC program is specifically designed to include support facilities and encourages infrastructure work.

GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL | 40TH ANNUAL LADY HAWK INVITATIONAL

Brussels bounces back to reach consolation semifinals at Carrollton tourney SaM ELLIOTT Calhoun News-Herald

Carmen Ensinger/Calhoun News-Herald

Baylee Kiel shoots over a Civic Memorial defender Saturday at the Lady Hawk Invitational. The Brussels freshman was limited to eight points against the tournament's No. 1 seed Saturday, but scored 32 to lead the Lady Raiders into the consolation semifinals after a 52-33 win against West Central's junior varsity Monday in Carrollton.

Carmen Ensinger/Calhoun News-Herald

Calhoun sophomore Madison Lehr lines up a shot against Granite City Saturday at Carrollton High School.

The tournament went without an upset as seedings held through the first round, but the Calhoun High School girls basketball team had to overcome a shooting slump in order to advance to the quarterfinals of the 40th annual Lady Hawk Invitational. But thanks in part to a 16-8 run through the fourth quarter, the Lady Warriors escaped with a 46-37 win against Granite City Saturday at Carrollton High School. The tournament's No. 2 seed, Calhoun will face No. 7 North Greene in a quarterfinal matchup at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in Carrollton. The Lady Spartans beat Carrollton's junior varsity 62-16 Saturday. The Lady Warriors' win against Granite City was one of just two first-round games at the Lady Hawk Invitational not decided by at least 24 points. "We had to grind it out for four quarters," Calhoun head coach Aaron Baalman said. "Shots that we normally make just weren't going in." The Lady Warriors (18-2, 6-0 Western Illinois Valley Conference) were limited to 26.5-percent shooting from the field overall and went without a made 3-pointer in nine attempts. "We just aren't hitting our outside shots as of late," Baalman said. "When we don't hit those shots, the lane gets congested and that gets us out of our inside game." Freshman Grace Baalman led Calhoun with a game-hightying 15 points and 10 rebounds while sophomore Emma Baalman added 14 points and 13 rebounds. Classmate Sydney White was next for Calhoun with seven points. Wednesday's winner between the Lady Warriors and North Greene will face either West Central or Jersey Community in a tournament semifinal at 8 p.m. Thursday. Wednesday's loser will play either Carrollton or Alton in a fifth-place semifinal at 7:30 p.m. Friday. —————————— The Brussels High School girls basketball team had its six-game winning streak snapped by top-seeded Civic Memorial in a 63-31 decision Saturday, but the Lady Raiders bounced back with a 52-33 win against West Central's junior varsity Monday at the Lady Hawk Invitational. "We were a little sluggish and we looked slow coming out in those first three quarters," Brussels head coach Steve Schulte said. The Lady Raiders (14-9) led by just a 37-28 margin to begin the fourth quarter, but began the frame on an 8-0 run through its first three minutes to pull away to a doubledigit lead. Brussels will face GreenfieldNorthwestern in the tournament's consolation semifinals at 5 p.m. Wednesday in Carrollton. The Lady Raiders won a 56-51 decision when the teams met in a consolation semifinal at the Lady Spartan Classic Thursday, Jan. 16, in White Hall. The winner in Wednesday's rematch will play either

"She stepped up big time," Schulte said. "There aren't many freshman girls that can step up and hit 11 of 16 from the field. Her consistency all year has really been a nice surprise."

IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF CALHOUN COUNTY, ILLINOIS EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT File Photo

Taxpayers who exercise their due diligence might be able to uncover deductions they never knew existed.

These tax breaks are often overlooked

to earn tax breaks because of that ambition. The tuition and fees deduction allows you to take up to a certain amount off your taxable income without even itemizing. Other credits, including the American opportunity tax credit, are available as well. Visit the IRS Web site (www.irs.gov) or discuss your situation with a professional tax preparer to determine your eligibility. n Home improvements: Some home improvements might still be eligible for tax credits thanks to a provision in the 2013 tax bill. Residential energy upgrades to energy-efficient products might not be worth as large a deduction as they were in the past, but they can still help homeowners trim a little off of their tax bills. When filing late, many taxpayers overlook tax credits that can save them a good deal of money. This year, filers can be sure to get every break they deserve.

Come mid-April, late-filing taxpayers across the country are looking for ways to lower their tax bills or increase their tax refunds. Perhaps the most effective way to do just that is to take advantage of the numerous potential tax deductions available. Though tax laws change each year and it's always best to consult with a tax professional before making a questionable deduction, the following are a few oft-overlooked deductions that might trim your tax bill and keep your money in your pocket and out of the coffers of the Internal Revenue Service. n Charitable items: Many taxpayers are fully aware they can deduct donated vehicles or monetary gifts to charities, but there are other items related to charitable efforts that might be deducted as well. The cost of supplies you purchase for use in charitable endeavors or uniforms purchased that you wear while doing charitable work

can typically be considered charitable donations, making them worthy of a tax deduction. n Costs related to job hunting: Men and women who are currently employed but looking for work within their fields might be able to deduct the costs associated with their job hunt, including resume design and printing and employment agency fees. These costs typically must exceed a percentage of your adjusted gross income before they can be deducted, so look into the law and examine your expenses to see if you qualify. n Moving costs: Relocating for a new job? Then chances are you can write off many of your moving expenses. New college grads may also be eligible to write off some of their moving expenses if they are relocating for their first job out of college. n Educational expenses: Men and women who want to further their education might be eligible

PUBLIC NOTICE

TRI-COUNTY REAL ESTATE TOUR

File Photo

Begin the new year in a new home After flatlining during the economic downturn that began around 2008, housing markets in many regions of the United States and Canada have shown signs of recovery. Those in the market to buy and sell may find this year presents an ideal opportunity to do just that. According to the real estate listing Web site Zillow, home values rose 5.1 percent across the United States between February 2012 and February 2013. The latest forecasts from Canada Mortage and Housing Corporation indicate a strong housing demand into 2014, at which time a strengthened economy will energize both resale and new housing markets. Buyers will need to be prepared to purchase inventory right away, while sellers will need to price their homes right for the best chance of sale. The following are some guidelines. n Buyers Having a plan is essential when buying a home, as such a purchase is not something buyers should take lightly. Establishing a budget is the first step. This means taking inventory of savings, expenses and borrowing power. It is adviseable to sit down with a lender and do a run-through of what you can afford. By providing key financial information, including earning statements, existing debt and credit history, buyers can quickly learn how much they're qualified to borrow and how much they are comfortable borrowing. This helps buyers zero in on homes in their price range. Being preapproved for a mortgage is advantageous when it comes time to make offers on properties. It shows sellers that buyers are serious and that they have been vetted by the bank. Many buyers conduct a lot of research online prior to stepping into a home. This research lasts an average of six to eight weeks, according to the National Association of Realtors. Homework includes investigating neighborhoods and school systems, comparing the going rates of homes in the area, as well as figuring out which features are desired in a home. It also is important to hire a buyer's agent. Such professionals send buyers listings that fit their home-search parameters, which saves buyers a lot of time and effort. Some agents preview homes for their buyers, even going so far as to identify overpriced listings that can be avoided or finding sellers who are willing to negotiate. A buyer's agent works for the buyer, meaning there will be no conflict of interest. Agents

assist buyers in the negotiating process, using their knowledge of the real estate market to help buyers make realistic offers that are likely to be accepted while providing a wealth of information about housing trends, area services and home improvement vendors. When sellers accept buyers' offers, buyers must then arrange home inspections. An inspection is oftentimes included as a contract contingency, and buyers have a right to cancel contracts if inspections find that a home is unsatisfactory structurally. n Sellers Sellers competing for business in a thriving housing market also have to do their share of work. It is unlikely sellers will be able to list their homes for sale one day and have dozens of offers the next. Today's buyers are much more conservative, and homes will have to be presented in the best light and listed at reasonable prices. Sellers can start the process of selling their homes by researching recently sold homes in their neighborhoods, paying particular attention to final sales prices. This information may be available through tax records, and some real estate sites publish the data online. Sellers can then compare this information to what they still owe on their mortgages if their homes are not paid off, and this should give sellers an idea of their potential profits. Sellers also can benefit from working with real estate agents, as it can be quite difficult and stressful for homeowners to sell their homes on their own. Agents have access to multiple listing databases and industry contacts, information that is quite valuable when selling a home. Agent will do their own assessments of a home to help sellers price the home accordingly based on market conditions. In addition, real estate agents can inform sellers about which, if any, repairs or changes may need to be made to make a home more attractive to prospective buyers. Real estate agents also help sellers through the negotiating process, finding a balance between what the buyer wants to pay and how much the seller wants for the home. Housing markets are once again looking up. As the new year arrives, many people may find now is the time find their next homes. Understanding the process and getting guidance from real estate professionals makes the process of buying and selling a home that much easier.

These home improvements may lower home value Home improvements are typically made to improve the functionality and look of a home, but renovations also can increase the value of a home. Certain changes to a home can make it more attractive to prospective buyers, while other renovations may make a home less appealing. For example, a complete overhaul of an outdated kitchen is often a smart financial move, while installing a pool or hot tub may not be worth the cost to homeowners. Separating the good from the bad renovations makes smart financial sense, and homeowners looking to improve their homes' resale values may want to avoid the following projects. n Bedroom and garage conversions: Changing a room's traditional function often turns off buyers. For example, turning a garage into a home gym might seem like a great idea for you, but it may not be so appealing to prospective buyers. Buyers can certainly reconvert the space, but they would consider the costs of such a conversion when making their offers on the home. n Stylized colors on trims and rooms: Painting over unappealing colors is a project many homeowners can handle. However, some may be discouraged by a home that has too many bright colors or textures on the walls and trims. Buyers often want homes that are move-in ready, meaning they can get settled in before undertaking large projects. Stick with neutral

colors when selling a home, even if this means giving rooms a new coat of paint before putting your house on the market. n Outdoor hot tubs and indoor spa tubs: Many people find soaking in a bubbling brew of hot water quite inviting. But buyers often do not want to inherit a used hot tub. Although hot tubs are cleaned and maintained with sanitizing chemicals, some people may view them as unsanitary. Removing a hot tub can be labor-intensive. And much like a pool, a hot tub may not be appealing to buyers with young children. n Too many features: In an effort to "keep up with the Joneses," some homeowners will over-improve their home to the point that it outshines all others on the street. There is a case for having nice things, but homeowners may struggle to sell a home that is disproportionate to other homes in the area. Practice moderation when making improvements to attract more buyers. These suggestions are merely guidelines and should not replace the advice of a reputable real estate agent when marketing a home. Housing features and what buyers are interested in vary across the country. Some items may be desireable in specific areas but undesireable elsewhere. Making informed choices before renovating can help homeowners recoup the largest share of their investments.
