IDOT extends ferry closures into March by bOb CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Illinois Department of Transportation has extended the closures for the ferries at Brussels and at Kampsville until the beginning of March due to blockages from ice. Joseph Monroe, IDOT District 8 operations engineer, said the ferries will remain closed until they can be used to safely ferry traffic across the river. “Once the channels clear, and it’s safe to navigate from bank to bank, safely allow cars to access the barge, and we can actually allow the cars to leave the barge in a safe manner and we’re confident it is safe both coming and going, we will reopen,” Monroe said. The stoppage of service is a hindrance to many who live in Brussels and Golden Eagle. Carmen Simon, Brussels resident, is the business manager for the city of Grafton

whose commute has been extended by a 20 minute detour. Crossing the ferry had become part of her morning routine, she said. “It’s that extra seven to 15 minutes I have to relax and have that cup of coffee while I cross the ferry,” Simon said. “I wish they were open. It gets old really fast.” She said the closure has increased her fuel expenses due to the extra distance she has to travel. Waiting for a ferry is less cumbersome than waiting for the Joe Page Bridge in Hardin if it is up to let a barge pass underneath, she added. “By the time I get to work – especially with how the weather’s been – my hands actually hurt from gripping the steering wheel so hard because [the roads] are slick,” Simon said. Though the ice has broken since the river first froze over, large chunks line the banks of the river, impeding the ferries from complete-

ly docking to their respective landings. The bumper of the ferry must sit flush with the landing for cars to safely travel onto the boat. “If you can’t actually get the dock straight up against the barge, the folks can’t depart, or they can’t access the barge,” Monroe said, “So, you actually potentially risk having a situation where folks would become stranded.” But the ferries are not built to break through ice, Monroe said. If a ferry were to attempt to crash through the frozen sheet, it could stall out and become stranded in the middle of the river. “They are not designed to function as ice breakers, so there is also a concern for the ferry to become somewhat hampered or underpowered where it wouldn’t be safe to navigate the river channel,” Monroe said. “It would be out in the middle of the navigation channel.” He said depending on the thick-

ness of the ice, the hull of the barge or the boat could be damaged when trying to traverse the frozen waters. Until the boats can cross the river safely, Monroe said they undergo routine maintenance so ice does not force the boats into the middle of the river. He said they are turned on daily to crack up any forming ice and to push debris away from the boats. “We are occasionally operating them to re-moor them and make sure they’re safe so there’s not a situation where they are knocked away or moved in any way, or damaged,” Monroe said. Historically, this is one of the most extended closures of the ferries in both Brussels and Kampsville. Monroe said the ferries reopened within two weeks of their closure during the most recent shutdowns, and though this stoppage of service is longer than most, he is unsure if it is a record-setting closure.

Sheriff seeking two in Michael Tavern burglary by bOb CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The burglary of a juke box machine at Michael Tavern Jan. 28 has the Calhoun County sheriff searching for two individuals who hid their identities from security cameras at the establishment. Sheriff Bill Heffington said he has heard from four Illinois counties – along with some in Missouri – about cases with similar motive and style of burglary. The individuals break into a business with a juke box or similar machine for the cash box, open all the drawers behind the bar, and grab all the cash they can before fleeing the scene. Heffington said a security camera at the Michael Tavern shows the burglars' vehicle as it pulls into the parking lot before dimming the lights. Wearing ski masks to hide their identities, one stood watch while the other entered the business where $411 was stolen

from the juke box. “They broke in the front door. That seems like that’s what they’re doing,” Heffington said. “They were caught on a security camera, but you couldn’t tell who they were.” Deputy P.J. Parker said the entire crime was committed in less than two minutes, and though cars drove by the establishment before and after the crime, none drove by as the burglary was being committed. Heffington said the driver of the car opened the door at one point while the other person was inside, and the sheriff said he believes the driver was warning of an oncoming vehicle. The Michael Tavern is located on a stretch of the Illinois River Road where traffic is visible in both directions for a great distance, giving the burglars advance warning of passing witnesses. The burglary may also be linked to a similar burglary in Brighton. Parker (See, michael, A2)

Village of Hardin awarded $150k engineering grant by bOb CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Hardin Village board spoke with two representatives of Bartlett and West on how the village could best spend a $150,000 engineering grant. Issued through the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO), the Community Development Assistance Program grant will allow the village to complete engineering on projects

which would improve the water system in Hardin. According to a letter from DCEO director Adam Pollet dated Dec. 18, the money cannot be awarded before a formal grant agreement is executed. Adam Vecellio, Barlett and West representative, said he will help the village seek a $500,000 construction grant to pair with the engineering grant which would give the village a means to improve aging water infrastructure.



The Brussels Ferry has been closed since Jan. 2 and the Kampsville Ferry initially closed Dec. 30. Both were slated to open last weekend, but weather forecasts and worries of more ice on the river delayed their reopening until March. Earlier this year, the Illinois General Assembly approved to purchase a new ferry for the Kampsville location valued at $3.4 million. Monroe said the new ferry is still being constructed and will arrive in Kampsville when it is completed. The new vessel will have an engine meeting EPA Tier 3 standards for emissions, aimed at reducing tailpipe and evaporative emissions. Monroe said IDOT will open the ferry as soon as possible, even if it is prior to the agency’s expected reopening date. The Golden Eagle Ferry remains closed, but the Winfield Ferry is still running to take commuters into Missouri.

Calhoun awarded four Act of God days by bOb CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald With nine school closures since the beginning of the year due to extreme cold, heavy snowfall and icy roads, Calhoun Community Unit School District 40 has taken measures to rectify its school calendar. Superintendent Kate Sievers said she amended the school calendar due to the closures and applied for Act of God days so students would not be required to continue classes into late June. “The regional office of education and the Illinois State Board of Education has approved four Act of God days,” Sievers said in an email Monday night. “Any other days the district has off, I will apply for Act of God days.” According to information found through the Illinois State Board of Education, Act of God days “may not be accessed

until all proposed emergency days built into the proposed calendar have been converted to emergency days.” Sievers said the district had five emergency days, which were used within the first few weeks of January when the area was slammed by heavy snowfall and negative temperatures. Act of God days may only be used when a condition is out of the district’s control that poses a threat to student health and safety. The days must be approved by the regional superintendent of schools and the state superintendent of education. Sievers said the last day for teachers is scheduled for Friday, May 30 and students will be dismissed for the summer May 29. It is not clear how the closures could affect standardized testing.

Public Works Director Jerry Rose said one of the biggest problem areas in town is the line running under County Highway 1 outside the Jersey County Grain Elevator in south Hardin. Because of the heavy traffic during harvest season – dozens of trucks line the road north and south of the elevator – a lot of stress is put on the water lines below. Board member Matt Haug said the board should not lose sight of improving the water for residents whose water is murky. Though improvements to lines under considerable

stress are important, he said residents also need clean water. Vecellio said the engineering grant could also be used to update the village’s water line map. By doing so, he said the village could prioritize improvements based on need and importance. Mayor Phil Gress said Vecellio’s suggestion could be good for the village because it may also find additional problems, which are not as noticeable. (See, hardin, A2)

Donations needed for Ezekiel Shrine restoration Correction Forty years ago Fr. Roy Bauer, with the help of some generous parishioners, erected a four-foot by eight-foot mosaic of Ezekiel in St. Norbert’s Cemetery. In recent years water has seeped through a crack in the top border behind some of the glass mosaic pieces causing them to fall off. There is also some deterioration of the grout and weathering that has left a milky residue on a large portion of the mosaic. If you have not seen this deterioration, take a drive to the cemetery and see what is happening. Sarah Kinder has been working with Father Bauer to get this valuable mosaic artwork restored. In the summer of 2013 Sarah met with

Funeral Director Phil Gress and an artist from Emil Frei Associates of St. Louis to develop a proposal for the restoration project. The Frei Company acquired the Ravenna Company several years ago when it went out of business and moved to the New York area. Ravenna was the original artwork designer and installer. The approximate cost of a detailed restoration as explained by the Frei Co. is $10,000. This could be more or less, depending on some unforeseen problems that develop during the restoration process. Sarah has even collected pieces of the fallen tessare in the past years so the artist can match the color and reuse these pieces. The shrine can

(Continued from A1) said the difference in time between the burglary in Brighton and the one in Michael is consistent with the drive time between the two locations. The Jersey County Sheriff was not available by phone Monday or Tuesday to discuss the details of the Brighton burglary. Heffington and Parker both said Calhoun County residents should contact the sheriff’s office when they see something they deem suspicious. “If any of these workers going to work see a car at a business, get us a license plate number and give it to the sheriff’s office so we can get it checked out,” Heffington said. Parker said he hears too often from people after a crime is committed that they saw something that looked out of the ordinary, but did not alert law enforcement. He said the county is small enough that longtime residents know when something is out of


(Continued from A1) During the board’s regular meeting in January, the trustees approved an increase in water rates for Hardin residents receiving water through the city. The three-month plan goes into affect for February’s water bills with a $5 raise on bi-monthly bills, or a $2.50 increase each month. The increase is the first of three step increases over the course of the next three years, with the third year’s water bills reaching $65 per billing cycle. The village board said the rate increase was an important part of receiving future grants. The village had been turned down for grant opportunities because the bills could not sustain the system. The engineering grant awarded to the village requires a formal grant agreement with the DCEO. The board also approved a $250 donation to the Calhoun High School After Prom. The village donates to the program annually to promote safe behavior after students attend the prom dance.

Caring for skin during harsh winter conditions As the largest organ of the body, the skin should be well cared for and protected. Winter can pose a host of challenges for those who typically experience dry skin at this time of year. Between dropping and fluctuating temperatures and low humidity, it is easy for skin to feel the negative effects of the season. Most people experience dry skin in the winter because during this time, skin doesn't produce enough moisture to compensate for the drier air and lack of moisture. If dry skin is neglected, it can become red, flaky and itchy. Dry skin patches can develop into a more serious inflammation called dermatitis; and once the protective skin is disrupted by dermatitis, the skin is more susceptible to bacterial, yeast or fungal infections and allergic reactions on the skin. In spite of the harsh winter elements, this season does not have to take a toll on your skin. You can carry out a preventive skincare regimen that

will help you avoid dry, cracked and uncomfortable skin. Here are some easy and effective tips to help keep your skin happy and healthy during the winter season: n Keep bathing or showering to 10 minutes, using warm - not hot - water. Hot water can dry out your skin by allowing moisture to escape, while breaking down the lipid barriers. n Use mild soaps or soap-free cleansers. Many soaps strip important lipids and oils from the outermost layer of skin and can often contain ingredients that are damaging to the skin. n Avoid excessive handwashing or excessive use of hand sanitizers. Alcohol-based sanitizer in particular can be very tough on skin due to the fact that it dissolves oil, which can leave the skin feeling dry, chapped and irritable. n Moisturize thoroughly after bathing or handwashing, while skin is wet, with an ointment, cream or lotion.

Moisturizers work best when they're applied to skin that is wet or damp. They help to seal in the moisture and keep the skin looking and feeling healthy. "There are a good number of effective skincare products on the market to help consumers combat dry skin during this time of year, such as Lac-Hydrin Five, a reasonably priced, gentle, alpha-hydroxy lotion which restores moisture to the skin by hydrating the skin's natural barrier," says dermatologist Avery S. Kuflik, MD. Other causes of dry skin at this time of year include certain fabrics commonly found in warm winter clothing, such as wool, and central heating systems found in homes, which can reduce the humidity in the air and dry out the skin. Humidifiers are useful devices to have at home because they increase moisture levels in the air, which helps the skin. They also promote a variety of other health benefits.

The Brussels American Legion is hosting a Mouse Race Fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 21. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with races beginning at 7:30 p.m. There will be food available, silent auction, 50/50, ticket drops and games in the basement for kids.

By Carmen ensinger Calhoun News Herald Valentine’s Day associates February with hearts filled with chocolates. But the month is also linked to another heart - the human heart, with February being designated as American Heart Month. Danny Powell, 29, of White Hall, is all too aware of the importance of taking care of one’s heart. Three years ago, at the youthful age of 26, Powell suffered a massive heart attack. He said he would not be here today, getting ready to celebrate the birth of his first child, were it not for the dedicated staff at Boyd Hospital in Carrollton and the Prairie Heart Institute at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. On top of being young, Powell had no risk factors typically associated with heart disease. He was carrying around a few extra pounds, but was in no way overtly overweight; he didn’t smoke, he didn’t drink and he didn’t use illegal drugs. Nor did his family have a history of heart disease. He thought he was a healthy, young male, but that all changed on Father’s Day in 2011 when he collapsed with a 100 percent blockage in one of the main arteries in his heart. “I had gone to the hospital a couple times in the six months prior to this with chest pains but by the time I got into the emergency room, the pains were gone,” Powell said. “They gave me an EKG and these never showed any blockages.” But on Father’s Day, the pain was much more intense. “I had gotten home from work and laid down on the bed and I told my wife I had the worst pain in my chest,” Powell said. “It was a sharp pain shooting through me so intense it made me cry, and so I told my wife I think I needed to go to the hospital.” Just as with the two prior trips to the ER, before he arrived, the pain had subsided. “We were just going around Heinold Curve outside of Carrollton and the pain went from being absolutely horrible to nothing at all,” Powell said. “I told my wife to just take me back home but she refused and took me to the hospital anyway.” This would later prove to be the most instrumental decision in the couple’s lives. When he was not working at Airsman Hires Funeral Home as a funeral director, Powell

picked up shifts as an Emergency Medical Technician with the ambulance service. Powell looked for his friends on the ambulance crew to hopefully save a few dollars on an ER visit. “I was going to have them hook me up to the EKG machine in the ambulance to see if something was really wrong this time because I was tight and I didn’t want to pay for another ER visit if nothing was going to show up,” Powell said. “They were getting ready to hook me up and that is the last thing I remember - I coded right there in the back of the ambulance.” Powell needed to get to a cardiac hospital and fast, so an ARCH Helicopter was summoned. Powell was awake during the 20-minute helicopter ride to Springfield, even though his heart essentially stopped four times during this ride - all to save his life. “My heart kept going into what they call a deadly rhythm and if it stays in this rhythm for too long - you die,” Powell said. Powell would have to have his heart shocked nine times in all including once in the elevator on his way to the cath lab and twice during the catheterization of his heart. “The doctor explained to me that I had the type of blockage that was like a piece of onion skin in an artery,” Powell said. “When it was open I was fine, but when it closed I had the chest pains.” Doctors discovered the left anterior descending coronary artery was 100 percent blocked. This artery feeds the entire left side of the heart. “They refer to this artery as the widow maker artery because usually if you have a blockage in this artery you usually don’t make it,” Powell said. “The survival rate for people who have this type of blockage is pretty slim.” Powell said the first echoes of his heart showed minor damage on the lower lobe of his heart. “But after spending two days in cardiac ICU after they put the stent in they told me my heart was back to 100 percent with zero damage,” he said. “I guess it was because they got the blood flow back to the heart so quickly and the fact that I was younger and I healed a lot faster.” Luck was on Powell’s side during this harrowing experience. He recently found out his condition was

so critical and unstable that the helicopter almost declined to fly him to Springfield. “The paramedic who flew me up said that they almost took me back into the hospital and were it not for the pilot, he would not have attempted to get me to Springfield in my condition,” Powell said. “But the pilot told him he thought he could get me there and the paramedic trusted his judgment that he could get us there and so he said let’s do it.” Powell can’t say enough good things about Boyd Hospital. “I can’t tell you how lucky we are to have Boyd Hospital here,” Powell said. “Being in a rural setting like this so far from a major hospital, we are lucky to have a hospital so close which is able to get us stabilized so we can get to a larger hospital.” Powell’s case was so remarkable, as was his recovery, that he was one of only two rural patients asked to address a group of cardiologists on his experiences with the Stat Heart Program. “I felt honored that they chose me for this, but as I told them, if it wasn’t for them and Boyd Hospital, and the hospital personnel and paramedics who saw to it that I got to Springfield - I’d be dead now,” Powell said. “I still get a little emotional when I talk about it.” His close call with death has caused Powell to make some changes in his life and get his priorities more in line. “When something like this happens, you just get a different outlook on life than you had before,” he said. “I try to exercise more, try to limit the amount of fried foods I consume and try to include more grilled items. I had always been the kind of person that was work, work, work - I was always one to try to make as much money as I could. But something like this really makes you stop and think and cherish what we have right now.” And he knows it was more than just luck that has allowed him to tell his story. Powell said his family was by his side through the whole ordeal and for this he is grateful. He has one piece of advice he would like to pass on to everyone out there. “Don’t be rushed by life - enjoy every moment you have with your family which is what I try to do now,” he said.

When Jeff Plato sought medical attention this past June, he thought a poor planting season was taking a toll on his health. But, the shortness of breath and chest pains the 53-year-old was experiencing were, instead, a sign of major heart problems. “I thought I was having an anxiety attack,” Plato, of rural Kane, said. “I’m a farmer and farming was horrendous last spring.” After a battery of tests, however, it was clear more than stress was affecting Plato. On first examination, he was told he would likely need a stent and maybe a few nights in the hospital. Further review revealed more work was needed. “I think I shocked the cardiologist,” he said. “I ended up having to have a quadruple bypass.” Plato said his arteries had blockages of 100, 95, 90 and 60 percent, leaving him in a very vulnerable condition without even knowing it. After all, he had no family history of heart problems. “I’m sure I wouldn’t have survived if I would have had a heart attack,” he said. “My heart got down to functioning at 25 percent, but I never did have a heart attack.” After surgery on June 11, 2013, Plato remained hospitalized for a week. He said he was kept unconscious for three days while his heart gained strength. His wife, Jill, took off six weeks of work to help him begin his recovery. But, his heart problems were not over. Less than two months later, Plato began cardio rehab at Jersey Community Hospital. Not long into the program he experienced ventricular tachycardia (V-tach), which is an arrhythmia that can

The liver receives 25 percent of the blood that the heart pumps with each beat. One of the largest organs in the body, the liver also is one of the most important, serving a variety of functions that keep human beings alive. One of the more important functions the liver performs is the production of bile, an alkaline fluid that helps humans absorb food and eliminate toxins. Bile salts are produced in the liver and travel through the bile duct and into the intestine. These bile salts help humans absorb fat from their diets. When the liver is functioning poorly, some people may develop diarrhea or malnutrition. That's because a poorly functioning liver may not be producing enough bile or pumping out the bile it is producing as adequately as it needs to for the body to maintain normal function.

Boomers embrace technology to facilitate more graceful aging Generation X and Millennials get credit for being the most tech-savvy generations, but a growing group of baby boomers are demonstrating that the generation gap has nothing to do with digital know-how. Folks 50 and older are embracing technology to help them age more gracefully than ever. Whether they're using devices to hear better in challenging situations, or social media to reconnect with friends they've not seen since high school, baby boomers are demonstrating they're not afraid to use technology to make life easier. Here are a handful of ways boomers are using technology: n Coping with auditory challenges - In our noisy, fastpaced society we commonly encounter many situations - such as a business meeting, family gathering or phone call - in which hearing may be difficult, even for people who don't need a specialized hearing aid. Savvy boomers are using a Bluetooth-enabled amplification device to discretely improve volume and clarity in a variety of challenging environments. n Relationship management - Four in five people age 50 to 75 are active on social media, and of them 75 percent are on Facebook, according to a survey by technology security company McAfee. Boomers use social media - including professional sites like LinkedIn - to reconnect with friends from high school or college, maintain contact with family and friends, date, build professional connections and develop personal interests. n Managing investments - Approaching retirement can

make boomers feel driven to maximize their investment returns. Yet not everyone has access to or can afford working with a financial planner. Many boomers use online investing tools to fill knowledge gaps and build their nest eggs. From in-depth information on tax-deferred or tax-free investment products to online brokerage accounts, technology has made it easier than ever for the 50-plus set to save toward retirement. n Catching up on their reading - Changes in vision are a natural part of aging, and it's not uncommon for people to need some help reading their favorite novels. Yet traditional compensation tactics, like wearing reading glasses or choosing large-print books and periodicals, shout "fogey." E-readers, however, are cool - and allow boomers to enjoy their favorite reading material at the type size that's easiest for them to read. n Staying healthier for longer - Boomers have rewritten history in many ways, and not the least among them is their determination to stay as active and healthy as possible into their old age. An array of fitness technology - from pedometers to in-home gym equipment that tracks BMI and heart rate - is helping boomers achieve their fitness and wellness goals. From devices that improve hearing clarity to online tools that help them better manage their finances, baby boomers are using technology to ensure they enjoy life and remain active and healthy well into their golden years.

Changes to expect when getting new health insurance today Health insurance plans have grown increasingly expensive, and many employers shop around regularly in order to save money as well as keep prices affordable for their employees. This could mean that at the start of every new year, individuals have a new insurance card in their pockets and a new plan to learn. Over the last couple of years, annual increases of around 9 percent in insurance costs have been the norm. While the rate of increase going from 2011 to 2012 was lower, at about 5.5 percent, according to information from CNN Money, that is still around a 2 percent difference in the rate of inflation and salary growth. Due to these rising costs, employees are bearing more of the financial burden of paying for health insurance by paying higher deductibles and co-payments. Understand the type of plan you have Health plans are largely broken down into two main categories: HMOs and PPOs. All managed plans contract with doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and laboratories to provide services at a certain cost. Generally this group of medical providers is known as a "network." HMOs, or health management organizations, require you receive most or all of your health care from a network provider. You

also may need to select a primary care physician who oversees and manages all of your health care requirements, including approving referrals for tests or approving visits to specialists. PPOs, or preferred provider organizations, create a list of preferred providers that participants can visit. You will not need to select a primary care physician and likely won't need referrals to visit specialists. Should you choose to stay in-network, you will pay only the co-payment required. However, you also have the option of going out of your network, and will have to pay the co-insurance, which is the balance remaining for the doctor after the PPO has paid their share. Many plans will cover 70 to 80 percent of the out-of-network bill, and you will be responsible for the rest. HMOs are the least expensive option, but they're typically the least flexible as well. For those who have a family doctor who is in-network and will not need to see doctors outside of the network, it is financially beneficial to go with an HMO. Those who routinely see specialists or want greater say over when and where they can go to the doctor, a PPO is a better option. Having said this, understand the type of plan your employer is

now offering. If you will be using an HMO, you may have to find an entirely new set of doctors to see and should be ready for this reality. Take note of co-payment and co-insurance changes Notify your doctor of new insurance Many insurance plans will start coverage at your sign-up or anniversary date, others may begin January 1st. Notify your healthcare provider as soon as possible as to the change in coverage. This protects you if they are behind in billing and paperwork by helping you avoid additional out-of-pocket expenses resulting from billing the wrong insurance company. Learn about annual exams A new plan may wipe the slate clean with respect to how frequently you are entitled to yearly physicals or specialized tests, such as mammograms or prostate exams. When your insurance plan changes, investigate when you are able to go for routine exams and if you will have to pay a co-payment. You may want to schedule a physical at this time to start the new year on a healthy note. Many people find that rising insurance costs necessitate insurance carriers frequently. This can be a hassle, but a necessary chore of today's managed care world.

Batchtown. Strolling Life’s Garden Frances Culp Wolfe While strolling in life’s garden, I saw beauty on every turnBright flowers were all blooming, Midst stately rows of fern; Amongst such lovely splendor Were roses full of thorns, White lilies aged with browning, A product of life’s storms. We, too, have thorns and thistles That prick and cause us pain; Sometimes we trip and stumble, But God picks us up again. Then as we stroll life’s garden, There are signs along the way; If we will read and follow them, We won’t get lost or stray. Christ is the garden keeper, Who tends our needs as well. As long as we look up to Him, His love won’t let us fail.

The basics of atrial fibrillation When working properly, the human heart is a wonder. The heart's two upper chambers work in conjunction with the two lower chambers to deliver blood and oxygen to every area of the body. Sometimes the heart may beat irregularly and rapidly, in which a person is experiencing atrial fibrillation, commonly shortened to AF or "afib." When a person is healthy, the atria (upper chambers) of his or her heart contract, followed by the ventricles (lower chambers) in a normal sinus rhythm. When timed perfectly, this beating enables the efficient flow of blood throughout the body. Normally, the heart beats at a rate of 60 to 100 times per minute at rest. When atrial fibrillation occurs, the electrical rhythm of the heart is not orderly and many different impulses fire rapidly at once, causing a chaotic rhythm in the atria, which can no longer effectively contract blood into the ventricles. The result is an irregular, fast heartbeat that may range in 300 to 600 beats per minute at rest. There is no one cause of AF, which has been linked to a number of different heart conditions. These include, but are not limited to, hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disease, and pulmonary embolism. Hyperthyroidism and excessive alcohol consumption as well as pneu-

monia and certain lung conditions also may contribute to AF. The Mayo Clinic says the older a person is, the greater his or her risk for atrial fibrillation. Around 8 percent of the United States population over the age of 80 has AF. In many cases, AF exhibits no symptoms and a person may not realize that the heart is beating erratically. Fainting, chest pain, lightheadedness, confusion, and shortness of breath may be symptoms of AF. Others with AF have reported palpitations, which are the sensation of a racing heartbeat that almost seems like the heart is flopping in the chest. Very often people spend several years with AF without knowing it. A doctor will diagnose AF through a variety of different tests. An electrocardiogram, or ECG, graphs an image of the electrical impulses traveling through the heart. This is one of the more common ways to diagnose AF. A monitor may be worn for a few days to continuously record the heart rhythm. Oftentimes a person can live with AF without any problems. However, there are some dangers in letting AF go untreated. Because the heart is beating irregularly, blood flow can be compromised and not pump efficiently. This can make the heart weaken and lead to heart failure. When the atria are not beating correctly, blood will not flow

through them as quickly. This may cause blood to pool in the upper chambers and contribute to clot formation. If a clot dislodges and gets pumped into the brain, it can cause a stroke. The Cleveland Clinic says those with AFare five to seven times more likely to have a stroke than those without AF. Treating AF may require a series of medications to prevent clots and reset the rhythm of the heart. Resetting the rhythm is known as cardioversion, which can be done with medication or through a brief electrical shock under sedation. Blood-thinning medications, such as Warfarin, may be prescribed. Such medications help the blood stay thin and prevent clotting. Routine checkups may be needed while taking a blood-thinner because small cuts can result in significant blood loss. Drugs used to keep the heart rate normal and prevent future episodes of AF include sotalol, dronedarone, dofetilide, and amiodarone. AFmay recur even when treatment is effective. It may take some time to get the right balance of treatment to prevent future bouts of AF, but there is no guarantee it won't come back. Working in concert with a qualified doctor can make the process go more smoothly, and treatment with medication may need to continue throughout a person's life.

Scott’s Law protects what’s behind the badge on IL roads

In 2000 Lt. Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department was fatally injured by a drunken driver while working at a crash scene on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Since then “Scott’s Law” was established which requires drivers to change lanes or slow down if they can’t get over when approaching stopped emergency vehicles. Unfortunately, within the last two years multiple troopers, first responders and maintenance workers have been killed or severely injured by motorists who are in violation of this law. Whenever motorists approach a stopped emergency vehicle on the side of the roadway they typically see an officer directing traffic, conducting a traffic stop, investigating a crash scene, a fire fighter extracting an injured person from a vehicle, a paramedic applying first aid to those in need, or a maintenance worker repairing the roadway. However, there is much more behind the badge and uniform than what is seen by the passing motorist. To many, those first responders are fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters. Like so many people, they know that once they arrive home they will be greeted with warm hugs from their children and spouse. They are the

hero to their sons, an invitee to their daughter’s tea party, a blessing to their parents. They attend birthday parties, family gatherings, movies, church functions, sporting events, and so much more just like any other member of their hometown. Behind the badge and the uniform is a world no different from anyone else. And when tragedy strikes worlds are forever changed for those who are left behind. First responders are aware of the dangers of their job. Yet, so often many of the tragic incidents could easily have been avoided. Jan. 1, 2014, the speed limit was raised to 70 mph on the Interstates throughout Illinois except in highly populated areas. The average vehicle traveling 70 mph will travel 308 feet in three seconds. A driver who is distracted from their driving for three seconds will essentially travel 308 feet blind. Lives can be changed forever in a matter of seconds. The Illinois State Police would like to remind the motoring public to expand your field of vision down the roadway as you drive and to avoid distractions. Remember to change lanes or slow down if you can’t get over when approaching stopped emergency vehicles. Please protect those who protect us.

Eagles win school's first regional title

SAM ELLIOTT Calhoun News-Herald The 40th annual Lady Hawk Invitational will be longer than most. Originally slated to be the tournament's final day, poor weather and icy road conditions forced the postponement of the four games scheduled for Saturday. After a one-week hiatus, the teams will try again this Saturday at Carrollton High School. Brussels will tip off the day's action in the consolation title game at 2 p.m. Calhoun will cap off the tournament by playing top-seeded Civic memorial for the championship at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Carrollton. The Lady Hawk Invitational's top-two seeds, CM and Calhoun met previously this season in Jerseyville Holiday Tournament pool play. The Lady Eagles won 75-42. "The girls are looking forward to facing CM again," Calhoun head coach Aaron Baalman said. "When we played them during Christmas break, they shot the ball extremely well and we just let a couple bad decisions turn into some big runs for them." After overcoming a stretch of poor shooting to win a 46-37 first-round game against Granite City Jan. 25, the Lady Warriors have won their past three games by an average of 22 points while scoring nearly 65 points per game. "We spent a lot of time in practice pushing the ball up the floor," Baalman said. "If we run our transition offense and get out to a quick start, everybody tends to play with more confidence." Calhoun won its 11th-straight game in a 56-35 decision against Jersey Community High School in the Lady Hawk Invitational semifinals Thursday in Carrollton. Grace Baalman led all scorer with 16 points, including eight in the first quarter as the Lady Warriors built a 30-12 halftime lead. Emma Baalman and Kassidy Klocke added 14 and 10 points, respectively, against the Lady Panthers. The Baalman cousins combined for 46 points as Calhoun beat North Greene 74-54 in a quarterfinal game Thursday in Carrollton. Emma Baalman scored a game-high 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting while Grace Baalman added 21 on 9-of-14 shooting and the Lady Warriors shot 65 percent overall from the field. Between its first-round and quarterfinal games in Carrollton, Calhoun beat Carlinville 64-39 Tuesday at CHS. Emma Baalman scored a game-best 22 points, Klocke added 14 and Grace Baalman chipped in 12. Calhoun is 21-2 overall this season and 6-0 within the Western Illinois Valley Conference. A meeting against Routt Monday in Jacksonville was postponed due to the weather and the Lady Warriors will host West Central — also unbeaten in league play — at 7:45 p.m. Thursday in Hardin. "Repeating as WIVC champs and staying unbeaten in the conference over two seasons is one of our goals," coach Baalman said. "But it's hard to overlook Routt and West Central, which have both had a lot of success in the WIVC in recent years." BRUSSELS PLAYING FOR CONSOLATION TITLE The Lady Raiders were without their leading scorer after Baylee Kiel fouled out in the fourth quarter and Greenfield-Northwestern forced overtime, but the Brussels High School girls basketball team rallied to win a 51-47 decision in a consolation semifinal Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the Lady Hawk Invitational. "I just told them they had to want it more than the other team," head coach Steve Schulte said. "We should have had it in regulation, but we just didn't get the job done. I just told them they've got to step up and do it." Kiel scored a team-high 14 points before fouling out and Faith Maag added 10 for the Lady Raiders (15-9). Marissa Kuhn scored the go-ahead basket on a jumper with 90 seconds to play in overtime and Grace Stephens made four free throws down the stretch to seal the win. The Lady Raiders will play Granite City for the consolation title at 2 p.m. Saturday in Carrollton.

The Brussels Middle School seventh grade boys basketball team won the first regional championship in school history when the Eagles beat Greenfield 47-28 Thursday at St. John's in Carrollton. Outside of an early 4-0 lead for the Tigers, the Eagles (12-8) took control the rest of the game and won going away. After some defensive adjustments and key transition buckets against Greenfield's full-court pressure, Brussels took momentum and led 10-9 through the opening quarter. Darren Klass scored eight of his 14 points in the second quarter as the point guard continually drove to the basket to score or find open teammates and the Eagles led 23-13 at halftime. Hunter Klass, who finished with a game-high 23 points, accounted for all 12 of Brussels' third-quarter points.
