Gress resigns, Haug appointed as Hardin mayor By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Hardin Village Board of Trustees appointed Matt Haug as Hardin’s active mayor after Phil Gress tendered his resignation during a regular meeting Tuesday, April 8. Gress’ resignation came as a shock to those on the board, but Gress said the decision to step down was not made without some serious thought. “I’ve been there for a long time between trustee and mayor,” Gress said. “I just figured it was time to step down and turn it over. … It was one of those [decisions] you keep going over in your head, but it wasn’t a last minute decision. I’ve had this on my

mind for quite a few months.” Gress said he did not step down for

CCUSD No. 40 approves issuing working cash bonds By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald The Calhoun Community Unit School District 40 Board approved its intent to issue $715,000 in working cash bonds Wednesday, April 9. Working cash bond issuance has become common for local districts as the state continues to cut education funding to public schools. Three years ago, Illinois kept five percent of general state aid that would have otherwise gone to districts, and for the past two years, it has kept 11 percent. Kate Sievers, Calhoun CUSD 40 superintendent, said Gov. Pat Quinn has a proposal that would increase the funding, though districts would still be cut 10 percent from what they are owed. “We’ve heard 83.5 is Bob Crossen/Calhoun News-Herald another percent they’re going to prorate us,” Sievers said, noting that would hold Riley Hanneken, from Hardin, launches a bowling ball down the lane at Tri-County Bowl Friday night in Jerseyville. Jerseyville Parks  16.5 percent of funds from schools. “If they stay at the and Recreation hosted a bowling event where kids got to meet with the Easter Bunny for pictures and bowl with their friends. 90 percent, then I’ll be a happy camper.

were some rough patches during that time, Gress said he was proud of his accomplishments, most notably the work to update the city’s water plant. The village was awarded a $150,000 engineering grant the board of trustees intend to use to update decades-old water lines throughout the town along the Illinois River. The work would also include updated water line maps to better find solutions to problems in the future. City attorney Charles H.W. Burch said the village board had the authority to appoint one of its members to the position of mayor in the event the seat is vacated, as was the case with Gress' resignation. (See, gress, A2)

for tax revenue to be sent by the state. No action was taken on the issue April 9, rather the board decided to wait until the warrant was a necessity. The state owes the district $185,000. The working cash bonds would be used to pay for items in the education fund, the majority of which is used to fund teacher salaries, along with other necessary expenses. The board also approved to post in-house for a high school principal and advertise for a high school biology teacher, high school track head coach, high school Scholastic Bowl coach, high school tutor, high school student council advisor, high school detention, high school tech, high school cheer coach and special bus route driver. Most of those positions were held by Terry McGregor, high school biology teacher, who will retire at the end of the 2013-2014 school year. “We will dearly miss him,” Sievers said in an email April 10. James A. Ringhausen will hold the position of treasurer until June 30, at which point the district will appoint a new treasurer. Ringhausen announced his retirement from the position in February due to his age. He’s been involved (See, ccusd, A2)

the annual clean-up has kept the community aware of its waste habits and encouraged county residents to clean up unwanted trash from the roadside, which would otherwise scar the county’s natural beauty. “I do think there has been more awareness because of our yearly initiative,” Burch said, noting there is a stark contrast between the roadsides then and now. “It was bad. It was unsightly. … There were certain areas that were ground zero.” There is no cost to join the initiative to clean up the trash. However, the CCF will accept only trash in bags supplied by the foundation for the event. There will be only one day on which participants may redeem their trash for cash. On April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., trash may be dropped off at the county highway department in Hardin or in the parking lot at St. Mary Church in Brussels. Burch said Robert Sanders Waste Management Systems donated dumpsters for the event. Last year, groups competed to collect the most bags of trash for a $500 first place prize, but Burch said there wasn’t as much participation as the foundation had hoped. By offering cash per bag, the foundation hopes to spread the reward for cleaning up the county to all who participated. (See, trash, A2)

Letter to the editor

Urges public to contact legislators about school funding TO THE EDITOR: Dear community members, we would like to personally thank everyone who came out to the Town Hall meeting two weeks ago and came last Saturday to test drive a car to help raise money for the school. This was awesome to see everyone showing their support for our students and the schools. We would also like to thank everyone who has called, emailed, and communicated with the local representatives expressing their concerns and asking the state to fully fund education. We are very fortunate to have such a great community and one that is willing to unite to fight for our children’s education. Thank you so much. Educational funding will be an ongoing discussion until the State of Illinois decides to fully fund it. In Governor Quinn’s budget address last week he proposed to spend an additional $6 billion on K-12 education and an additional $1.5 billion on Early Childhood. Hopefully the governor and his constituents will live up to their promises! If they do not, then the Calhoun School District could possibly face a loss of approximately $559,000 or more in the next few years. With Calhoun School District facing this type of financial stress, the Calhoun School Board has had to make some difficult decisions about the future of the Calhoun School District. They approved the intent to issue working cash bonds, which will help offset the decreased revenues to be received from the state to get the district through the next few school years. The district worked to restructure previously issued bonds to decrease the interest rate thus helping the decrease the tax rate. The school board and district is also making cuts that will have the least impact for students educationally The cuts made will total over $100,000 for the next school year by reducing in force three teacher’s aides, one custodian, and eliminating a single bus route and one leased bus through attrition. In addition, the district will delay the purchase of needed materials, supplies and repairs.

Ringhausen will hold an interim

As a community, let’s be proactive and continue to contact our local legislators. This is not a partisan issue, it is a state issue. We also need to reach out to friends and family members in other legislative districts and ask them to contact their local representatives and ask them to express their concerns for education funding in Illinois, too. The more representatives we can reach the more our voices will be heard. Let them know that we are ready and willing to fight for the future of our students! Please share your concerns with them about the lack of state funding and the effect this has had on our local education. Clearly state your expectations and beliefs that the state of Illinois should fully fund education and make it the state’s number one priority. It is the duty of our local legislators to fight for our children’s education! Please contact your legislators at the following phone numbers: • Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer 217-782-1840 • Senator Sam McCann 217-245-0050 (Jacksonville Office) • Senator John Cullerton 217-782-0244 • Representative Michael Madigan 217-782-5350 • Governor Pat Quinn 217-782-0244 Several teachers have created a Facebook page called, “Reform Education in Illinois.” In an effort to spread the word, please search this page, “like” this page and “share” it with everyone!

Memory Shirley Sallay Easter time means Easter eggs Of rainbow- colored hue, A soft and cuddly bunny And a jelly bean or two… A brand new Easter bonnet On top of baby’s head, A bit of artificial grass In green, or gold, or red… A little woven basket Beside each bedroom door, Where children may discover them At dawn, as they explore. Just a bit of whimsy For a special holiday… Moments shared together, Then gently tucked away.

Retired Hardin Mayor Phil Gress told me, in an exclusive interview, that his almost 25 years as trustee and Mayor of Hardin was a pleasure and honor. Phil, as we all know, is kept very busy with his funeral home, and thought it was time to cut back, and enjoy his family. Happy retirement, Mr. Mayor. On a lighter note, Phil Gress is a member of the CEC, and has talents many people did not know he had. He has one heck of a voice, and is, also, a quipster. Maybe you could take your show on the road, Phil. The Kampsville American Legion is now open. We stopped by there Friday night and it is beautiful, large, spacious, and well lit. So, stop by and have a drink or two, or three, but remember DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE. Rusty called to chat and find out

how I am doing. It is really great to have three kids who actually care how I am doing. It is, also, great to have a Hubby that takes such good care of me. But, don’t tell him I said this or he will get the big head. Ran into Grace Matthews in Walmart yesterday (Grace and I are both former Retzer girls), and she stated that her husband, Kenny, who is suffering with cancer is going through treatment now, and is doing well. Thankfully, the chemo and radiation are not making him sick. Hopefully, this won’t change. Redeye and I journeyed to Walmart last Friday and I picked up three pair of capris for this summer. Bought my regular size, which, jeans are same brand still fit. I could get the capris buttoned, but I couldn’t breath, so we went back to Walmart Sunday, and got a size

bigger. Redeye told me not to worry about weight gain, but I am very vain about my looks. This being that when I was younger, I had frizzy hair, buck, and I do mean buck teeth, and until I was in high school, I wore dresses made out of feed sacks. Yes, feed sacks, the sacks were made of beautiful prints and Mom was an excellent seamstress. The only thing I had going for me were my legs and my petite size. At age 46, I had braces put on my teeth, and was able to buy some nice clothes, and what a change it made. So, yes I am vain, but I know I have to have the weight or the cancer will attack my body instead of the fat. Remember water/sewer customers, water /sewer is past due. Please pay so we don’t have to cut you off. And how was your week???? See you next week.

We had a great time of worship at the Kampsville Gym this past Sunday. Several of you came to visit with us and we want to thank you for joining us. It was a great time of worship in singing and a dramatic presentation by the pastor entitled “It Should Have Been Me” a first person narrative of the crucifixion through the eyes of Barabbas. We would like to wish Larry Gill a happy birthday. He celebrates it on April 18. We would like to invite you to our Good Friday Candlelight Service at 7:00 p.m. There will also be another dramatic presentation entitled “The Way of the Cross.” If you do not have a church home, we would like to invite you to join us at Belleview Community Church this Sunday for our Easter celebration at 10:45 a.m. It finally happened. I went fishing for the first time this year. I received a call on Thursday night inviting me to go fishing. I had a service to prepare for, schoolwork to do, but I did not care, I needed to go fishing and nothing was going to stop me. Even my wife could see that. I have not fished since last October and my arms were twitch-

ing. It was a beautiful day. It started off a bit chilly with the wind but thankfully our “secret” location was surrounded by trees that shielded us from the chilly breeze yet allow us to enjoy the full warmth of the sun. My partner opened up with the first cast. Me, nothing. I felt rusty. I needed to shake off the cobwebs of my fishing knowledge and get back into the swing of catching one. Then he caught another. I used everything I had in the tackle box and nothing seemed to work. “Splash!” He had caught another one. I was getting frustrated, but I knew I could not quit. I was bound to catch something. I had never fished this location and it was only a matter of time before I could find what works. After about 1 ½ hours, we decided to venture further from our location. We found a spot that looked ideal and, boy, was it ever ideal. It was like we hit the mother lode! I finally started catching fish. Crappie, bluegills, and bass were being pulled up one after another. I should confess that I finally started using the same jig and setup my partner was using. It took me a little while, but I finally got into

them. Patience. My wife’s mother told her when we was first together, that I must be a patient person if I love fishing. I have never thought of that before but I can tell you that patience is not one of my strongest suits. A part of me wanted to just call it a day and go back home and do the work that needed to be done. Had I quit, I would have lost the blessing of catching fish. And catch them we did. Our arms were tired by the end of the day, but patience was rewarded. So many decisions have been made because of impatience. Decisions that continue to haunt us today. They say good things come to those who wait. Patience is required when it comes to waiting. What decision awaits us today? Sit back. Take a deep breath. Look at the outcomes. Be patient. Then make the decisions. “I gotta have it now” usually leads to decision that we will regret.” Life has it rewards, it took me awhile but I finally started to catch fish. Hold on…. I have a bite. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. (James 1:4)

NWTF partners to reach online hunting community The National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) has partnered with Powderhook, a technology company with a mission of "Access for All," to increase the effectiveness of the NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. "The NWTF recognizes hunters are a major funding source for wildlife management. We need more hunters to keep wildlife populations healthy and thriving, and access to hunting lands keeps hunters in the game. Solving the access problem is bigger than any one organization. We're happy to partner with Powderhook and others to develop a solution," said Doug Saunders, NWTF senior vice president of marketing. Powderhook's website allows hunters to easily find and share access to hunting clubs and leas-

es, reputable outfitters, and private and public lands. The built-in communication and trip planning tools are essential to engaging new people and encouraging hunters to venture out more often. "The mission of `Access for All' is a big undertaking but that is why our partnership with the NWTF makes sense. We, too, are trying to increase the number of hunters along with the availability of hunting habitat," said Eric Dinger, Powderhook CEO. As an incentive to join the movement for preservation of our hunting heritage, the NWTF and Powderhook are giving away a once-in-a-lifetime turkey hunt with former MLB player, Ryan Klesko, and turkey hunting legend, Eddie Salter.

The NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative is a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to give the NWTF more energy and purpose than ever. Through this national initiative, NWTF has committed to raising $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential upland wildlife habitat, create at least 1.5 million new hunters and open access to 500,000 new acres for hunting, shooting and outdoor enjoyment. Without hunters, there will be no wildlife or habitat. The NWTF is determined to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. For more information, contact Peter Muller at pmuller@nwtf.net or (803) 637-7698.

She was stationed in Bronx, N.Y. and Honolulu, Hawaii. Janie completed her bachelor’s degree in social work at the University of Illinois in 1947 while starting a family with her husband at Stadium Terrace. With her husband being recalled to service in the Air Force, Janie shepherded her young family to postings in Guam, Texas, Ohio, Colorado and England. While at R.A.F.

With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue will break a bone. Proverbs 25:15

Aristotle claimed that there were three basic ways we can persuade others: logic, emotion and character. Often we want to know the reason why we should do something. A physician who explains how a medicine will benefit her patient is appealing to logic. And when she tells him the terrible consequences which are likely to result if he doesn't treat his condition, she is appealing to emotion, in this case, fear. And by convincing her patient that she really is a kind and compassionate physician who has her patient's best interest in mind she is appealing to character. We are all more likely to listen to someone who we believe to be a genuinely good person. A fourth means of persuasion that can be effective, and which must be combined with character or moral persuasion, is the rule of seven touches. Sales and marketing folks know that they are more likely to make a sale after repeated contacts, and the rule of seven touches says to not give up on a potential sale until after you've had seven contacts. Familiarity, while admittedly sometimes breeding contempt, can also breed trust, at least when we are becoming familiar with someone who is friendly and seems genuinely interested in us. So if you want to persuade someone, combine your logical, emotional and moral arguments with a genuine interest in the other person, and make frequent contact with them. –Christopher Simon

IDNR initiates further reforms to advance regulatory transparency Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Director Marc Miller announced April 3 significant reforms to further improve transparency and strengthen regulations in the agency’s Office of Mines and Minerals. These reforms continue the effort to rebuild and renew IDNR that the administration of Gov. Pat Quinn began with the appointment of Director Miller in 2009. “The reforms being announced today are the most recent steps to further restore the integrity of this agency and allow for more public participation as we work toward becoming a national model for transparency,” said IDNR Director Marc Miller. Earlier this week, the IDNR committed to several reforms designed to improve transparency and public participation in the coal permitting process. Today, the IDNR is announcing several other concrete steps that will even further advance the process. These reform initiatives include: n Increased inspections of all coal ash impoundments: In the wake of recent failures of coal ash impoundments in North Carolina and West Virginia resulting in contamination, IDNR’s Office of Water Resources will visually inspect all coal ash impoundments in Illinois for structural integrity, to protect our natural resources. n Strengthen internal oversight of permit applications: The IDNR has added a position of General Counsel to the Office of Mines and Minerals to specifically focus on matters related to the Illinois statutes and regulations related to coal and aggregate mining, blasting and explosives, mine safety, and abandoned mined lands reclamation. All permits will be reviewed against legal standards by the Office of Mines and

Minerals General Counsel before submission to the Director of the Office of Mines and Minerals. n Additional public oversight added to State Mining and Oil and Gas Boards: The IDNR proposes that two additional appointed members be added to the State Mining Board, and that two additional members be added to the State Oil and Gas Board. Each board would add two representatives of the general public who have no financial interest in mining and/or oil or gas operations in the State of Illinois. n Improved information collection: The IDNR has redesigned and updated the Oil and Gas Permit Application, which will improve the information exchange process and allow the agency to better collect and review information from applicants. n Conflict of interest policy update: The IDNR is strengthening its agency-wide policy on conflicts of interest to provide more specific guidance to employees with respect to prohibited acts, and areas of potential or apparent conflict. During the past year, Director Miller separated the Office of Oil and Gas from the Office of Mines and Minerals, making the Office of Oil and Gas Resource Management (OOGRM) a distinct regulatory office. The move significantly improved the office’s regulatory ability, resulting in a major increase in penalties imposed against oil and gas companies. In the last six months of 2013, the OOGRM collected more than triple the number of fines that were levied on oil and gas companies in the previous 36 months. Within the Office of Mines and Minerals, the IDNR has expanded the use of federal Abandoned Mined Lands funding to support 17 new staff positions, including mine inspectors.

IDNR announces new management for Eagle creek Golf course Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Director Marc Miller approved a contract April 8 with Green Golf Partners to maintain and operate the Eagle Creek Golf Course, located on the shore of Lake Shelbyville in Findlay, Illinois. The agreement, which will keep the course open for public play, marks the first time operations of the Eagle Creek course will be led by an experienced golf course management firm. “Finding an experienced golf course manager is an important first step for the future of Eagle Creek Resort, and this agreement demonstrates our commitment to the Lake Shelbyville area and the people who have been waiting patiently for the resort’s reopening,” said Director Miller. “I appreciate the initial step

taken by the Department of Natural Resources to get the golf course operational, “ said State Sen. Chapin Rose (R Mahomet). “I look forward to meeting later this month with the Department to plan for the future of the Eagle Creek Resort.” Green Golf Partners has nearly 20 years of professional golf course management experience, with a strong presence in Illinois. The Danville, Indiana based company currently manages several Illinois courses, including both University of Illinois golf courses in Savoy and the Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer. “All of us at Green Golf Partners are excited for the opportunity to get to work quickly and give the public a great golf experience at Eagle Creek. The course is in good shape and we look forward to welcoming

golfers on Friday April 11th,” said Matt McIntee, CEO of Green Golf Partners. Now that a golf course manager has been secured, the IDNR will quickly turn its attention to the future of other facilities at the Eagle Creek Resort. “Local input is very important moving forward, and I expect to meet with local and state officials for input before submitting a new request for proposal to find an experienced resort management company to take over resort renovations,” added Miller. The previous leaseholder recently walked away from its lease and the Eagle Creek Resort project last month. The golf course phone number is: (217) 756-5550.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steely Dan will perform at the 2014 Illinois State Fair. The Grammy Award-winning band, which has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, will bring its “Jamalot Ever After” Tour to the fair Friday, Aug. 15. “I’m thrilled Steely Dan is coming to the Illinois State Fair,” State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick said. “They are on our list of bands that are frequently requested by fairgoers.” Steely Dan released a string of Top 20 hit songs in the 1970s, including such classic rock staples as “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Do It Again,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Reelin’ In the Years” and “Deacon Blues.” Its 2000 album, “Two Against Nature,” the band’s first record in 20 years, won a Grammy Award from the recording industry for “Album of the Year.” Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29 for a Tier 3 Grandstand seat to $54 for a VIPit track ticket in front of the stage, will go on sale Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. The fair also announced today: Singer and songwriter Hunter Hayes, the youngest, solo, male act ever to reach the top of the

Hot Country Songs chart, will take the Grandstand stage for a concert Wednesday, Aug. 13. Hayes already has six hit singles to his credit, including “Wanted,” which reached number one just after his 21st birthday in September of 2012. His second album, “Storyline,” is scheduled to be released in May. The first single from the album, “Invisible,” climbed to number four on the country music charts. Tickets for the Hayes concert, which also go on sale May 3, will cost between $29 and $49. Track and VIPit tickets for the Aug. 10 performance of Florida Georgia Line are sold out. Reserved seats, however, are still available through Ticketmaster and can be purchased either online at http:// www.ticketmaster.com/, by phone at 800-745-3000 or in person at all Ticketmaster outlets.

Hardin, Illinois

Governor Quinn announces $16.5 million for local park and open space projects Governor Pat Quinn announced April 5 $16.5 million in investments for 46 local park projects across Illinois. The investments will expand outdoor recreation opportunities in communities across Illinois, and are part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to ensure that no child is left inside. “Parks and outdoor recreational activities help make Illinois a great place to live and work,” Governor Quinn said. “These projects will create jobs, allow more families to get active outdoors and promote healthy lifestyles.” The projects are funded through the state’s Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development program (OSLAD) and administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Funding recipients are required to contribute at least half of the total project cost, which means that today’s $16.5 million investment will generate more than $33 million of local park development projects and land acquisition across the state. “OSLAD is a great program that provides dedicated matching funds to communities striving to protect critical open space, especially in parts of the state that are developing rapidly,” Marc Miller, Director of DNR said. “This program is an

important tool for us to help communities provide enhanced recreational opportunities.” The OSLAD program began in 1986 and, not including today’s announced projects, has provided approximately $377.8 million for 1,641 local park projects in Illinois. In some instances, funding will enable communities to acquire land to be used for future green space. The program is funded through the Real Estate Transfer Tax, which is part of every property sale in Illinois. A list of this year’s OSLAD grant recipients and project descriptions follows: Champaign County Champaign Park District, $300,000 for Douglass Park improvements. Christian County City of Pana, $190,000 for Kitchell Park redevelopment. Coles County Mattoon Township Park District, $400,000 for Lytle Park – A Vision for the Next 100 Years.

Illinois Conservation Foundation announces 2014 Conservation Achievement Scholarships The Illinois Conservation Foundation announced April 3 the recipients of the 2014 Conservation Achievement Scholarships. These prestigious awards were given to Kenneth Bielski, a senior at Hononegah High School in Rockton and Alex Handel, a senior at Sycamore High School. Each student will receive a $2,000 award to apply to specified expenses at the two- or four-year college or university of their choice. “The Conservation Achievement Scholarships allow the Illinois Conservation Foundation to recognize and reward some of the outstanding natural resources stewardship efforts being conducted by young people in our state,” said Marc Miller, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Illinois Conservation Foundation. Kenneth Bielski demonstrated conservation leadership by volunteering at the Hoo Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, the Welty Environmental Center and the Natural

Lands Institute. He has worked on projects to educate adults and children as well as performing natural lands restoration and wildlife rehabilitation activities. Alex Handel is dedicated to preserve and protect the Illinois environment. He is a “Leave No Trace” trainer and volunteers with the Russell Woods Forest Preserve and the Kishwaukee Watershed Management Program. He has participated in prairie seed collections and restorations, tree-planting activities, trails work, educational efforts and community planning. “The 2014 scholarship applicants demonstrated great work in preserving and enhancing a sustainable outdoor Illinois environment, but our two winners were exceptional examples,” Miller said. “Their volunteer efforts over several years showed initiative and highlighted their leadership skills while making positive differences in the environment. I congratulate both students.”

The Conservation Achievement Scholarships have been awarded since 2005. In the 10 years of this program’s existence, 59 scholarships worth a total value of $90,000 have been distributed. Generous donations to the Illinois Conservation Foundation from numerous organizations and individuals make this program possible. Applicants for the Illinois Conservation Foundation’s Conservation Achievement Scholarship program must be outstanding high school seniors in Illinois who have demonstrated effective, voluntary, long-term dedication to the preservation, protection, enhancement and/or promotion of Illinois’ natural resources. Other criteria also apply. Detailed instructions and the application form can be accessed at http://www. ilcf.org/scholarships. Please contact the Illinois Conservation Foundation at 217-785-2003 or dnr.icf@illinois.gov for more information or to make a donation to support the Conservation Achievement Scholarships.

SPORTS House putting IHSA under microscope Calhoun News-Herald

C6

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Hardin, Illinois

SAM ELLioTT Calhoun News-Herald The Illinois General Assembly’s House Committee on Elementary and Secondary Education will conduct subject matter hearings questioning and examining the funding, protocols and practices of the Illinois High School Association. House Resolution 895 — sponsored by Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora) — was approved by the state’s House of Representatives in a 55-51 vote Monday, April 7. The resolution calls for the education committee to conduct hearings concerning “the administration and funding of high school sports, the safety of high school athletes, the systems and protocols of the IHSA, the costs and income associated with the administration of high school sports (including any trademarks or copyrights claimed by the IHSA) and the feasibility of statutorily transferring the duties and functions of the IHSA to the Illinois State Board of Education.” While dates and details of the hearings have not yet been finalized, the IHSA intends to cooperate fully. “We wish Rep. Chapa LaVia had provided the courtesy of discussing any issues she believes exist within our organization prior to the introduction of this resolution, which has unfairly cast the [IHSA] in a negative light,” IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman said in a statement released Monday, April 7. “While we believe the hearings she proposes will be an unnecessary strain on the time and resources of both the General Assembly and the IHSA, we welcome the opportunity

to clear up any misconceptions this resolution has created.” While introducing the resolution to the Illinois House of Representatives, Chapa LaVia said it is no longer her intention for the State Board of Education to take over the IHSA’s operations. “This legislation is about demanding transparency and accountability from an organization that oversees the health, safety and educational development of thousands of Illinois students,” Chapa LaVia said in a statement released by the Illinois Press Association Wednesday, April 2. “Citizens throughout Illinois have been calling for more transparency in government. With the General Assembly once again facing difficult budget decisions, it’s reasonable for the taxpayers of this state to know how the IHSA is spending the funds it is bringing in. I applaud the Illinois Press Association for bringing this to my attention.” The IPA and the Illinois Broadcasters Association have announced their support for House Resolution 895. “We thank Rep. Chapa LaVia for introducing this resolution,” IPA Executive Director Dennis DeRossett said. “The IHSA is presently subject to almost no accountability or oversight, they claim to be exempt from both the Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act and they argue that they alone should control any revenue that is ultimately derived from taxpayer-funded sporting events. It should be public knowledge how much revenue is being generated by these events and other exclusive arrangements, along with what percentage or amount of that revenue is being remitted back to the local school districts.”

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the IHSA is not subject to Illinois’ Open Meetings Act or the Freedom of Information Act. “To be criticized for that when it doesn’t apply to us is borderline ridiculous,” Hickman told Jim Taylor of WRMJ in Aledo in a radio interview Friday, April 4. The IHSA’s audits, financial statements and annual report to its members are all available for public viewing online at its website, www.IHSA.org. “We really feel like we’ve been good corporate citizens in this state,” Hickman told WRMJ. “We have a balanced budget, we do fund our pension, we have a system where we don’t charge schools dues, we don’t charge schools entry fees, we returned $2.7 million to schools last year in revenue and I would put our record up against the state’s at any time.” Schools’ voluntary enrollment in the IHSA has included waived membership dues for more than 10 years. Revenue from the IHSA’s most profitable events — the football and boys basketball state championships, which brought in just more than $2 million each last year — and its corporate sponsors is used to offset the costs of the organization’s events, which operate at a deficit. State championships for sports such as cross country, golf, tennis, water polo, gymnastics and others lose the IHSA money annually, as do events such as the state chess tournament, speech competition, scholastic bowl and journalism contest. For the 2012-13 school year, the IHSA’s net proceeds were less than $56,000. Rep. C. D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville) — whose 100th District includes Jersey, Greene,

Calhoun, Pike and Scott counties — was among those to vote against House Resolution 895, citing the IHSA’s generation of private funds as one reason why. “The IHSA has private money that comes in to support them. They have boards made up of the people they represent. I think that’s kind of a good reason to leave them alone and let the people affected by it maintain it, especially with private dollars,” Davidsmeyer said. “I understand the close relationship because they do run the athletics for the high schools, but I don’t think that more government regulation of it will help anything.” The predominant public opinion voiced to Davidsmeyer convinced him state government intervention into the IHSA is unnecessary. “The main reason that I was against it was because I had people from our school districts contacting me telling me that the IHSA is doing a pretty good job and they don’t believe the ISBE is able to take on anything else,” he said. “I didn’t have anybody say this is a great thing or that we should really work on this. All the people I heard from said this is a bad idea. Why would we think about doing it?” As a coach and athletic director at Carrollton High School, Greg Pohlman has been involved with the IHSA for more than 30 years. He’s spent time serving on various boards and committees within the organization and has seen firsthand how the IHSA is governed and kept accountable by its own membership. “They have an executive director and a board of directors that governs the IHSA, but they are directly governed by the principals and representatives of the schools who are members of the IHSA,” Pohlman said. “The people who are in charge

of the IHSA now — I’ve known Marty Hickman most of my adult life — you’re not going to find a better, more fair, understanding or concrete guy who has a love for not only sports, but for academics as well.” While issues such as private schools competing against public schools, the number of classes and divisions per sport and geographical postseason assignments are common complaints faced by the IHSA, Pohlman feels the association consistently does its best to serve and benefit its large, diverse membership of schools. “Any governing body — whether it be the state legislature, a school board or the Boy Scouts — there will always be people that feel there’s a problem and that there’s an easy fix,” he said. “You’re not going to make everybody happy. I’ve seen how they draw lines and make divisions and yeah there have been times we probably felt we should have had certain things or assignments, but I’ve seen how they do it and they’re looking out for the best interest of every school involved.” High schools that commonly host regional and sectional playoff tournaments gain a financial benefit from their involvement with the IHSA in addition to the home-court advantage its teams enjoy during that round of the postseason. “It’s pretty beneficial for the schools to host regionals and sectionals, especially for a school our size with a limited budget,” Calhoun High School athletic director Ryan Graner said. “We can get some money back for our athletic programs by hosting those. It’s a major help when we’re trying to stretch every penny as much as we possibly can.”

Supporters of Resolution 895 claim the upcoming hearings with the IHSA will prove beneficial in examining how athletics at the state’s publicly funded high schools are managed by the IHSA. “To reiterate, this is only a resolution, not a substantive piece of legislation,” Sandy Macfarland, chairman of the government relations committee for the IPA, said. “It’s non-binding. Like Rep. Chapa LaVia, we are anxious to see what information is learned at these hearings. I think it’s time we have a discussion concerning the financial and public policy implications of continuing to blindly outsource a profitable and easily sold product — in this case, high school sports — to a seemingly unaccountable third party. Only after these hearings, based on what is learned — or perhaps not learned — do we think the General Assembly ought to initiate legislation.” Those who feel the IHSA doesn’t need state government oversight or intervention question the timing of the resolution, which comes at a time in which area high schools have seen the state come up short on its funding to local districts. “It just seems to me like the state should have bigger fish to fry right now than trying to go after an organization that is above water and not charging schools and is providing all these services for schools,” Graner said. “It’s not like there’s been any major breakdown with our state organization that runs athletics.” For more information on House Resolution 895, visit www.ILGA.gov.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP

Warriors bests Brussels, softball squads win five-straight The first matchup of the 2014 spring season between county teams went Calhoun High School's way as the Warriors baseball squad beat Brussels 11-0 in five innings Wednesday, April 9, at Brussels High School. Calhoun senior Tim Margherio hit two home runs as part of a 3-for-3 game with four runs batted in and two runs scored while sophomore teammate Mitch Bick homered and doubled to finish 2-for-3 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Raiders senior Dakota Schulte went 2-for-3 to lead the Brussels offense, which was kept to six hits as Calhoun junior Morgan Baalman pitched a shutout with seven strikeouts and three walks. The Warriors have since improved their record to 10-6 this season, becoming the county's first spring team to reach a double-digit win total. They beat East Alton-Wood River 8-4 Friday at Calhoun High School thanks in part to multi-hit games and three RBIs each from junior Austin Laing and senior Andrew Sievers. Junior Brandon Fraley earned the win from the pitcher's mound. Calhoun split a doubleheader with Southwestern Saturday in Hardin, losing the opener 7-2 to snap a four-game winning streak before bouncing back with a 3-1 win in the finale. Laing finished 3-for-3 in the victory while juniors Sam Barczewski and Trevor Bick drove home runs for the Warriors. Mitch Bick allowed just two hits and one earned run with 10 strikeouts and five walks in six innings of work to earn the pitching win before Sievers closed out the game for the save with one hitless and scoreless inning on the hill. The Raiders are 4-10 this season after losing a 12-7 decision against

North Mac Friday in Virden. Seniors Travis Kamp and Tyler Friedel each recorded multi-hit games as they and sophomore Joey Ohlendorf each tallied two RBIs and Caselton scored three times. Brussels' last victory was a come-from-behind 8-7 win in eight innings against Pittsfield Tuesday, April 8, at Brussels High School. The Calhoun High School softball team is 9-1 this season and riding a five-game winning streak after the Lady Warriors swept a two-game series with Marquette Catholic. Grace Baalman threw a no-hitter with 12 strikeouts and two walks as Calhoun won a 6-0 decision Thursday in Hardin. The freshman ace followed that performance by throwing a onehit shutout with 16 strikeouts and three walks as the Lady Warriors won an 8-0 game Saturday at Calhoun High School. Senior Samantha Gerson went 3-for-3 with two RBIs to lead the Lady Warriors' offense in the teams' first game. She, junior Becca Oswald and sophomore Emma Baalman each went 2-for-4 and combined for four RBIs in Saturday's outing, which included sophomore Madison Lehr's team-leading third home run of the season as she finished with two RBIs and scored three runs. The Brussels High School softball team had its winning streak snapped during a 9-0 defeat against North Mac Friday in Virden, but not before it reached five games after the Lady Raiders swept a doubleheader against Pittsfield Tuesday, April 8, in Brussels. The Lady Raiders are 7-5 this season. The Calhoun and Brussels softball squads will face off in the first of two meetings this season at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Brussels High School.

SMS demonstrates public speaking skills Recently, students in grades five through eight from St. Mary School had an opportunity to demonstrate their public speaking skills and take pride in personal accomplishments. On April 1, the students took part in a speech contest sponsored by Modern Woodman of America, a fraternal financial services organization. Students competing in the contest shared their presentations on this year’s topic, “ The Importance of Healthy Living.” The winners were Grace Nolte

(daughter of Chad and Melissa Nolte), first place; Katherine Simon (daughter of Kevin Simon of Hardin and Carmen Simon of Golden Eagle), second place; and Kaitlyn Glennon (daughter of Patrick and Becky Glennon of Golden Eagle), third place. Each of them received a trophy and a gold award pin, and their names will be engraved on the school’s speech contest plaque.

TRI-COUNTY REAL ESTATE TOUR

How to find the right real estate lawyer Men and women involved in complex or potentially complex real estate transactions would be wise to hire a real estate attorney, and the following are a few things to consider before hiring someone to represent you. n Experience One of the reasons to hire a real estate attorney is to make use of their experience. Hurdles have a tendency to spring up during complicated real estate transactions. Men and women involving themselves in development deals or buying rental properties likely won't see potential red flags as clearly as a veteran real estate attorney will. When interviewing a real estate attorney, ask how long he has been working as a real estate lawyer and how long he has been practicing in your particular state and city. Zoning laws and other restrictions vary from state to state and city to city, so look for a lawyer who has considerable experience in your state and city or the state and city where the transaction is taking place. n Plan of action When interviewing prospective attorneys, don't assume each one knows the best way to approach your

particular case. Provide the details of your transaction and then ask each attorney to explain how they would approach the case. A veteran real estate attorney should be able to provide a detailed account of how he plans to represent you, including what needs to be done to get the transaction off the ground, any potential hurdles that might need to be cleared and how to clear those should they arise. Avoid attorneys who give general or ambiguous answers, as such answers may be poor attempts by the lawyer to mask his or her inexperience with transactions such as yours. Some attorneys may request time to develop a plan of action, and you should not immediately remove them from consideration, especially if they ultimately answer the question in thoughtful detail. n Billing Attorneys are expensive, so it's best to discuss the billing process before hiring someone to represent you. Attorneys tend to bill by the hour, but their rates may be negotiable depending on the service they're providing. Real estate transactions are rarely inexpensive, so you don't want to be blindsided down the road when

your legal bills come due. n Representation When interviewing an attorney, many people assume the attorney they initially interviewed will be the person who represents them throughout the transaction. However, the day-to-day work on your case may be assigned to a junior associate or even someone who isn't licensed to practice law, such as a paralegal or a current law school student who is interning with the firm. These people might be perfectly capa-

ble of handling your transaction, but you should meet them before hiring the firm to represent you. A good rapport with the person who will be working on your case can ease the stress associated with complex real estate transactions. Real estate attorneys can help men and women navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of real estate transactions, and it helps to consider a host of factors before hiring a firm to represent you
