Feds release Smith but Calhoun still detains By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald A woman accused of leaving a bomb threat in the women’s restroom at Calhoun High School has been placed on house arrest with GPS monitoring. Despite the ruling, Michelle Lynn Smith, 36, of Jerseyville, is still detained in the Jersey County Jail pending a charge for falsely making a terrorist threat in Calhoun County. Smith had a hearing with Judge Richard Greenlief Tuesday morning through a Skype call to the

courthouse from the Jersey County Jail. According to an order from U.S. Magistrate Donald G. Wilkerson filed May 9, the federal court found Smith “is not likely to flee and she is not a danger to any person or the community.” The United States’ motion for detention was denied, and Smith was ordered to house arrest with GPS monitoring and daily reporting. A United States motion for her psychological or psychiatric examination “based upon her history for self harm” was also denied. Court documents state the last incident

of self harm “appears to have been in 2007.” Along with the Calhoun County charge, Smith faces a federal charge for conveying a false threat. The charge states she insinuated a bomb was in the high school building with a threatening letter that stated “This school is going down today. KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Upon discovery of the letter in the women’s restroom at the high school, all students were evacuated to Calhoun Elementary School where they remained until school was dismissed April 28. During a detention hearing May

5 in East St. Louis, Wilkerson ordered Smith be remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals because she is a danger to the community and herself. The Calhoun Community Unit School District 40 Board held a special board meeting May 5, where it approved to move forward with the dismissal of Smith from her duties as a special education teacher at the high school. The federal criminal complaint notes there were other threats made in 2007 and 2008 at the elementary school when Smith was employed as a special education teacher at

that school. There are also two separate misdemeanor charges for harassment by phone from January 2008. One count alleged she had threatened Kathy Schell, Calhoun Elementary school principal, by telephone, and the other count indicates Smith made several calls to the home of William Goetten with the intent to threaten Goetten and his family. Neither of the charges were prosecuted, but Smith was directed to seek psychiatric counseling, and was forbidden from making contact with the Schell and Goetten families.

By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald A man charged last October with reckless homicide pleaded guilty to the charge in court May 6. April L. McKee, 31, of Pleasant Hill, died in an accident last October north of Boothy’s Palace Tavern on the Mississippi River Road in Calhoun County. She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Randall T. Clendenny of Pleasant Hill. Clendenny voluntarily turned himself into the Calhoun County Sheriff’s office Oct. 23 after learning of the reckless homicide charge brought against him. His bond was initially set at $200,000 but was reduced to $100,000 the day he turned himself in. He was released on bond that same day. Six people were in the vehicle as it rolled over near Mozier Hollow Road north of Hamburg where Clendenny backed out onto the highway and lost control of the truck leading to the fatal crash. The vehicle came to a stop on its side in a corn field south of Mozier Hollow Road. McKee was in the back seat of the vehicle at the time of the rollover and when County Sheriff Bill Heffington, who is also the county’s coroner, arrived on site (See, clendenny, A2)

County discusses in-house renovation options By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald County officials had a meeting last week to discuss additional means to save cash on the courthouse renovation project. The project would convert the old grade school building in Hardin into a county government building, housing all county offices under one roof. During a meeting Monday, May 5, Commissioner Chairman Doug Wilschetz, County Engineer Barry Webster and Owner’s Representative Bernie Loft discussed what

parts of the project could be completed with the county’s resources. Webster said nothing was finalized at the meeting, but noted there are some demolition aspects of the renovation project that could be completed with county highway personnel and equipment. The meeting was a step toward seeking bids for the project, as the parts completed by the highway department would not need to be put out for bid. By using county resources rather than a contractor for certain aspects, the commissioners hope to save money on the project. The renovation is largely funded by Delford

Richter, who donated $1 million to turn the old grade school into a county building, so long as it is named after his father, Marvin Richter, who had been a leader in the agriculture community. Last month, Richter approved an amendment to the renovation plans. Originally, the plan prioritized finishing the second floor offices – judge’s chamber, state’s attorney’s office, circuit clerk’s office and courtroom – over all other offices. That initial plan would not have resulted in county employees working in the building, but with a change in priorities, nine county workers

could be in the building after the first phase is completed. The new plan places the supervisor of assessments, commissioner board room, county clerk and county treasurer into the structure. The plan was more amiable for Wilschetz, who was wary about paying for electricity, heating and air conditioning in an unoccupied building, had the revision not been accepted. Bid discussions have not begun during regular meetings of the commissioners. The next regular meeting of the Calhoun County Commissioners is May 19 at 3:30 p.m. in the courthouse in Hardin.

Riverside watercolors hang at Stonebridge By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald Stonebridge Valley Art Gallery hosted an opening for a well-known Alton artist May 10 with a series of watercolor paintings and ink and pen drawings. Gene Ursprung is an Alton resident who has been painting since he attended college at Southern Illinois University when it was located in Alton on the historical Surtleff College campus. It was at this school that he found his knack for artistic talent when he enrolled in an art course. There were only a few fine arts electives available at that time, most notably physical education, art and music. Being physically active and having sang in choir, Ursprung said he enrolled in the art class because he hadn’t had any traditional classes in the field. The class was difficult and new. The ideas were beyond what he expected, but he kept with it, and eventually a teacher told him he should continue to pursue art for a degree. He eventually would use his knowledge to teach art in the Alton School District. The fundamental ideas from those early classes stuck with him, he said, noting he attended workshops with artists in different parts of the country to better his skills. Fond memories stirred as he recalled traveling to Maine where he worked with Edgar Whitney to improve his painting skills with other likeminded artists. He said the group would spend a major part of each day reviewing the paintings the class made the day before. They would analyze the color choices, the

uses of space and whites, and many other fine details to improve their mastery of techniques, as well as each painting they would do in the future. Ursprung said the most important aspect he took to heart was the rule of threes. Each work of art can be divided into a grid of three rows and three columns, and in each square of that grid

“I kind of look for the characteristics of the area. Something that shows the way the area looks now versus what it’s going to be 20 years down the line.”

Gene Ursprung Artist should be something of interest. That interest can be a finer detail, he said, or it could be an element that draws the viewer’s eye to another part of the canvas. This concept is one of the first steps he uses when creating a new piece, which most often come from photographs he’s taken of the riverfront in the area. “I kind of look for the characteristics of the area. Something that shows the way the area looks now versus what it’s going to be 20 years down the line,” Ursprung said. Each piece is vastly different from the next. Ursprung uses a variety of techniques to convey the landscapes or designs in his pieces. Some are completely abstract – plots of lines creating stark

images on white canvas – while others are colorful swatches of watercolor-imagined towns along the riverfront. Many of his watercolor paintings are aided by his pen and ink sketches over the top of the colors to give pieces a sense of shape, while the fading or vibrant colors indicate depth. Swirls of a hazy blue turn into clouds with a swoop of the pen, and a brown patch becomes a boat with a few sturdy lines. He said the act of painting – of creating an image – is an enjoyable experience for him as he can continue to get better at his work. One area Ursprung said he wanted to improve is that of human faces. He said it is difficult to convey the tone of a person’s skin and to shape the facial features properly with pen atop the paints. Such is the beauty of painting and art, he said, noting he wishes schools weren’t in such financial binds that their entire art programs were scrapped for the essential reading, writing and arithmetic. “I think it gave them their personal opiniions, rather than following everybody else. That’s what we need to concentrate on a little bit,” Ursprung said. “That’s the part that I think we need to think about a little bit more today.” He said with fewer students exposed to art, the pieces can lose much of their value. This is apparent with the mass printing of dollar store pictures and paintings, he added, noting the best paintings are those unique to the artist and buyer. Ursprung's work will be showcased at Stonebridge Valley Art Gallery until June 1.

Superintendent finishes own educational endeavor By ROBERT LyONS Calhoun News-Herald Jersey Community School District’s superintendent will soon have another title tacked on to her name: doctor. Lori Hopkins, a Calhoun County native, recently completed her dissertation at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, earning a doctorates in education administration. The process took two years, she said. “I am so thrilled and I feel really blessed to have had the opportunity to do this,” Dr. Hopkins said. “I think I have grown exponentially as a leader.” While she feels she now has more to offer in her role, Hopkins said what she has learned on her path to earning her doctorates is more significant than the diploma. “Cory Breden said to me, ‘Are you going to have people call you Doctor now?’” Hopkins said. “For me, it’s not about the title. I hope I’m creditable just in my action.” Several factors went into her decision to pursue the advanced degree, including just liking a good challenge. “I think being a lifelong learner is what being an educator is all about; learning new skills and concepts, and being more aware of my surroundings,” she said. A passion for education and a strong commitment are qualities Hopkins hopes can be contagious. “It’s really important, not just for my girls, but for all my kids in the district to be a good role model,” she said. “I want to love learning so that they love learning. I think it’s important to model in every way I can for others.” She said the other people in her life who have demonstrated a passion for education have served as inspiration throughout her career and in her quest for a doctorate. Her mother who was a teacher, husband who is an administrator at Southwestern, coworkers at

She was found partially in the vehicle and partially out of it when the vehicle came to rest on its passenger side, suggesting she was not wearing a seat belt during the ordeal. The vehicle rolled approximately two-and-a-

half times. At the time the charges were made, Heffington said he could not release detailed information about why the fatal crash happened. According to the citation issued to Clendenny, his blood alcohol concentration was 0.111. His sentencing is set for June 3 in the Calhoun County courthouse at 1:30 p.m.

From left, Dr. Lori Hopkins, SIUE's Dr. Laurie Puchner, Dr. Allison Reeves, Dr. Betsy Meinz and Dr. John Hunt. Hopkins received her doctorate degree during a hooding ceremony Saturday.

JCUSD, as well as specific former colleagues – from Blackburn College, SIUE, and Carrollton where she has taught in the past – have all made an impact. “It’s the people in my life who have been truly influential. I think I strive to be like them,” she said. “You don’t realize how much someone impacts you until you look to your past and realize, ‘Wow, I wanted to be like her.’” Not only will the advanced degree allow Hopkins the opportunity to do more with District 100, but it lays the ground for future endeavors, as well. “I think there will come a time when I want to go back to postsecondary and teach again, and be around professionals who are interested in becoming educators or administrators themselves,” she

said. Beginning her pursuit of a doctoral degree the summer before assuming the role as principal at East Elementary, Hopkins initially was going to prepare a thesis on literacy and the integration of technology. A few months later, however, she learned she would be the next superintendent at JCUSD and her topic changed to strategies for improving district culture. The most significant lessons Hopkins took from her research are: people are any organization’s most important asset, collaboration with colleagues and other professionals in the field is essential, and there will always be changes and challenges that must be faced with a positive attitude. Working on her own education nights and weekends, Hopkins said

she has not had much free time during the past two years. “My family really sacrificed,” she said. “I never spent any time at work on this, except for conducting the research, journaling about office culture and that kind of stuff.” She said she will now be available to be more involved in some of the things she has missed out on while working toward the doctorate. “I have felt guilty that I have not made it to the number of activities, banquets or ballgames,” she said. “I feel like now having completed this goal, now I can participate in more Jersey 100 functions, so I’m excited about that.” Hopkins received her doctorates diploma during a hooding ceremony Saturday at SIUE.

From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is good, but the desire of the treacherous is for violence. Proverbs 13:2

Imagine a newscast every evening with headlines such as "Crime Is Down" and "Charitable Giving Is Up" and "People Are Helping Others Everywhere." Miracle of Miracles, that is indeed the case in many places around the world, but you wouldn't know it from watching the news. But, perhaps one way to put all of this good news in perspective is to realize that people helping others is such a commonplace practice that it doesn't make the news unless it's something really extraordinary. Likewise, the millionaires and billionaires who give generously have become so commonplace that they even have their own club and well over a hundred have signed onto a pledge, the so-called "Giving Pledge,” which commits them to give away the bulk of their fortunes. People who perform horrific acts of cruelty or commit heinous crimes are pretty much the exception to the rule of people acting decently, and that is why their heinous crimes make the news. It's just too shocking to ignore. So, perhaps we should remind ourselves every day of the Good News that is all around and spread the word to others. - Christopher Simon

dnr announces schedule of mississippi river State Fish and Wildlife area and Horseshoe lake State Park waterfowl blind site drawings Waterfowl hunters are encouraged to mark their calendars for upcoming waterfowl hunting blind site random drawings to be held at several public hunting areas around the Illinois and Mississippi River Confluence in Illinois on Sunday, June 1. The June 1 drawings are for hunting areas at the Mississippi River State Fish and Wildlife Area, and for Horseshoe Lake State Park (Madison Co.). Duck and goose hunters must register in person between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. for waterfowl blind site drawings and must be present at the drawing – held at each location designated below immediately after the registration period – to claim their blind sites. Mail-in registrations are not accepted. Blind allocations are good for three years. To participate in a drawing, applicants must present a 2013 or 2014 Illinois hunting or sportsman combination license and a 2013 or 2014 Illinois Migratory Waterfowl Stamp at the time they register, unless exempted by law. Applicants must be at least 16 years old by the date of the drawing. Applicants needing to purchase new licenses and stamps should do so prior to the drawing. Most blind drawing locations will not have license sales available. Licenses and stamps are available at any DNR Direct license and permit vendor, or through the IDNR website at www.dnr.illinois.gov. Registrants are no longer required to possess a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card from the Illinois State Police to participate in blind drawings.

may newsbits from idnr Your Fish and Wildlife Funds: Thank you for supporting conservation in Illinois by purchasing a hunting or fishing license. Your license dollars are deposited into the state’s Wildlife and Fish Fund. Money collected from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, stamps, and other related fees can only be used for projects such as fish stocking, population surveys, habitat projects, and conservation police officers who protect fish and wildlife. Learn more about your wildlife and fish funds: http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/WildlifeFishFund/Pages/default.aspx Shark Fin Update: A shark fin seized as part of an Illinois Conservation Police initiative to prevent illegal commerce in shark fins and related products has been donated to the Field Museum in Chicago. Officer Jed Whitchurch made the donation April 28 to Dr. Kevin Feldheim of the museum. Illinois Conservation Police waited until all cases were completed before making the donation. In late 2013, Illinois CPOs purchased shark fin items from six different businesses in Chicago. Items included shark fin soup advertised on a restaurant menu; four cans of shark fin soup; three packages of frozen shark fin; and, three dried shark fin soup kits. The soup kits suspected of containing shark fins were taken to the Field Museum for DNA analysis. Testing confirmed the presence of shark DNA from the Carcharhinid family, a group of sharks with about 50 species worldwide. On Feb. 28, officers returned to those businesses to issue citations and to check for additional violations. Four businesses and their owners were cited. Firearm Deer Permit Applications: Resident and non-resident deer hunters can apply for the second lottery drawing for 2014 Illinois Firearm Deer and Muzzleloader-only Deer permits. Non-resident applications can be submitted beginning May 6. The deadline to apply for the second lottery is June 30.

one-half hour before sunrise until 1 p.m. daily during the spring turkey season. The turkey hunting area restrictions are in place for the safety of site visitors and hunters. Spring turkey seasons end May 8 in the South Zone and May 15 in the North Zone. Bike to Work: May is National Bike Month, and May 12-16 is national Bike to Work Week.

Trails Brochure Now Available: Illinois offers a remarkable variety of bike trails, providing countless opportunities to experience the state’s diverse natural resources and communities. Trails offer recreation and transportation within communities, connecting neighborhoods, businesses, schools, and parks. Trails also connect communities with each other. Trails are often located within greenways, which help to protect open space resources. Find a copy of the Illinois Bike Trails 2014 brochure on the IDNR website at: http:// www.dnr.illinois.gov/publications/documents/00000642.pdf Invasive Species: May is Invasive Species Awareness Month in Illinois.

National Safe Boating Week is May 17-23. Life jackets save lives on the water, and Illinois law requires that personal floatation devices (PFDs) – life jackets or life vests – be available for each person aboard a boat or other watercraft. State law also requires that anyone under the age of 13 must wear a life jacket while aboard any watercraft under 26 feet in length at all times the boat is underway, unless they are below deck in an enclosed cabin or operating on private property. Illinois law also requires persons of any age to wear a PFD while operating a personal watercraft.

four days at a conference and with schoolwork and Sunday preparation taking much of my short week; I was never able to get around to the article. Again, I appreciate your support and encouragement. Never underestimate the value of what you teach children and never underestimate the value of what you can learn from them. Have you ever have moments when you wonder if what you teach your children is working? On the way to Iowa tonight we ran into a hellacious storm with blinding rainfall and hail. Cars along the way had pulled over to the side of the road because of the intensity of the storm. The visibility was dangerously low. We could not see much before us. The sheet of water that was falling from the sky blotted out the red taillights of the cars. The truck shook violently due to the wind that battered us on every side. The eyes of my eldest were wide with terror. While mommy drove, we began to pray. Then I heard the voice of my middle child, Emma.

Saturday Redeye and I attended the beautiful wedding of Lindsey Halsey and Andrew Taul at The Nature Institute in Godfrey. Their children, both participated in the wedding. Reagan was flower girl and Hayden was suppose to be ring bearer, but Reagan performed both duties. Hayden preferred to be carried by Daddy. Reagan wore a dress that resembled Lindsey’s, and Hayden was dressed in black vest and pants with white shirt and tie, so cute. We attended the reception, but after we ate, I was about ready to wilt so we came home. The KC Hall was beautiful and the food wonderful. All in all we had a wonderful day. Oh yeah, guess I should say Lindsey’s dress was gorgeous, and she was a beautiful bride. Andrew was just along for the wedding vows. He has learned long ago it is the women who get all the attention.

Wednesday Becky, Redeye and I left here at 4:30 a.m. for marathon doctors visits. He had to swallow a small camera at 7:30 a.m. and then we went to Becky’s Villa until time to take me to get my tests to see if the cancer is smaller, just the same or is clapping it’s hands saying haha I got ya, and has grown. It was a wild day; Redeye could not drink for two hours and could not drink for four hours. I, on the other hand had to be through eating by 11, I think. They dropped me off at Barnes for my tests and then went to have the monitor for the camera removed. Moving right along and everyone is where they should be at the right time, BUT Becky and Redeye were involved in a bad traffic jam due to an accident. My hospital closed at 5 p.m., but Becky called and told me what was going on, so I went outside about ten till five to wait.

I could have, actually, waited inside since they got there a couple minutes before five. Happy happy birthday to our wonderful grandson, Chet, on the 12th. Bev and T had us up for Mother’s Day, and Chet and Vanessa for his birthday. T made a killer casserole, and Bev made his favorite, chocolate cake. We, also, had dinner at Louie’s Saturday with Becky, Mike, and grandkids, Charlotte and Sawyer. They were on the way to their Villa, and were going to have Mother’s Day dinner at Richard Weber’s house. Our very efficient summer helper, Devin Hayn, is back on duty for the summer. For his age, he is very knowledgeable, and a hard worker. Please continue to pray for all cancer and other dread disease suffers. See you next week! And how was your week???

■ Blessings from Belleview We had a blessed Mother’s Day service at BCC. We are humbly privileged by the several visitors who have chosen to worship with us this past Sunday. Looking ahead, we are excited about two big events in June. On Sunday June 1 we are looking forward to our next Community Worship Service, “The Experience” at Hamburg Village Park. We are grateful to the village council for allowing us this opportunity. The service begins at 10:30 a.m. and we will be having a hot dog cookout after the service. We want to invite anyone to come and join us for this great time of worship and fellowship. On June 14 at 7:00 p.m., one of America’s premiere southern Gospel group “The Greene’s” will be in concert at BCC. We are hoping for a great turnout with a love offering to be taken to help pay for the expenses of their travels from North Carolina. This is a great group you do not want to miss. I do want to apologize for not having an article last week. I had spent

Before I tell you what she said, I want to rewind to our children’s ministry at BCC. Each week our children our given a Bible verse to memorize. If they correctly memorize the verse they will be given a sticker, which they can accumulate and then submit for a prize. The verse that they spent memorizing today was “I will be with you always.” Who knew that would come in handy when we needed it the most. That was what Emma said as we passed through the storm. “I will be with you always.” God used a three year old to remind us of His promises. He kept us safe, guided us and brought us through the storm. We are now at the hotel and getting ready to go to a restaurant to celebrate April. Yes, Emma, God is with us always and I am so glad I can trust Him in the face of a raging storm. From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. (Psalm 8:2)

Exercise offers something for everyone By Carmen ensinger Calhoun News-Herald They say variety is the spice of life and it’s certainly true in the fitness arena. No matter what the fitness level, there is an exercise program out there – it just has to be found. LAZ Fitness is just one of many different group exercise programs in the Greene County area focusing on cardio, strength and toning workouts. LAZ Fitness is owned and operated by husband and wife team Larry and Amy Lowis of Piasa. Together they hold three different classes each week on Monday and Wednesday in Carrollton. Both are AFAA certified in Group Fitness Exercise. Amy Lowis said she first became interested in fitness in 2009 when she began taking Zumba classes with a friend in Alton. “After I started taking the classes I fell in love with it and wanted to venture out on my own,” she said. “My friend encouraged me so in 2010 I got my licensing for Zumba and then my husband joined me in teaching Zumba in 2011. I became certified to teach group fitness classes in January of 2012.” Though they live in Piasa, they hold their exercises classes at Boyd Hospital and coming June 18, they will be holding an aqua class at the Carrollton Pool. No longer associated with Zumba, they teach an hour long

Z-Blast exercise class, which is a high intensity cardio class followed by a half-hour core class for strength training. “Z-Blast is a high intensity integral cardio class and it’s kind of like you do aerobics and all different sorts of things wrapped into a one hour session,” Lowis said. “The core exercises help to build strength in all of the muscles of the mid-section of the body, including muscles in the upper legs and back as well as the stomach.” Last year was the first year she held the aqua fitness classes at the pool and they were so successful she is bringing them back again with a 45-minute class on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 7:45 p.m. “Aqua classes are lower impact exercises so if you have bad knees or joints or you just can’t handle the impact then these classes are for you,” Lowis said. “The water acts as the resistant so it is all toning. The water does the work for you.” The core classes feature kettle bells which Lowis describes as metal ball with a handle on it which is used for strength training. Lowis said the group fitness classes provide some with that extra motivation needed to stick with an exercise program. “There are some people who have to have a friend to go with them to enjoy it,” Lowis said. “But I think if you enjoy what you are doing you are going to stick

with it whether you are in a group or do it as an individual.” The real key to success is finding a program you like and there are several in the area. “It’s great because everybody doesn’t like the same thing,” Lowis said. “Some people might prefer working out with weights while others prefer the programs more centered around dance and movement. Other people like the cross-fit classes which is really intense training. It’s just what you like and what you are comfortable with. The more fitness available, the better because people can always find something they like.” Lowis said her participants range in age from 16 all the way up to 82. “We have all fitness levels in our classes because we can modify the exercises,” she said. “The water class is very good for that because if someone has had surgery and they can’t really do a lot impact but they can still do the aqua classes. We have all different ages and we try to keep it interesting for everyone.” LAZ Fitness holds their Z-Blast fitness class on Monday and Wednesday at the Commons room at Boyd Hospital followed by the core fitness class at 7 p.m. Aqua classes will begin on June 18 and will take place at 7:45, p.m. also on Monday and Wednesday. For more information, check out their Facebook page LAZ Fitness or email Lowis at amylowis@frontiernet.net.

Hardin, Illinois

Farmers benefit from city’s lime disposal By ROBERT LYONS Calhoun News-Herald Farmers in the Illinois River valley are enjoying the benefits of lime applications without having to pay the price. Calcium carbonate, lime, is a byproduct from the water treatment process used by the city of Jerseyville. City Engineer Bob Kincade said, though it may sound strange, the city uses lime to reduce the amount of lime in its water. “We feed a hydrated lime to our water, which raises the pH and causes everything to drop out, including the dissolved lime that’s in the water,” he said. “It causes it to fall out as calcium carbonate.” In a year’s time, the city produces up to 1.5 million gallons of calcium carbonate, which Kincade said is also referred to as lime sludge. The lime sludge is redissolved into water and is pumped into a tanker truck. It is then delivered to local farm fields and the liquid lime is spread by tractor. “It’s the same product, essentially, that farmers use for liming their soil to raise the pH in it. Farmers get the benefit of the lime already being dissolved and being ready to go into the ground,” Kincade said. “What it does is it allows for a somewhat instantaneous increase in their pH on their fields.” The city engineer said soil could go from a pH level of six to anywhere as high as eight with one application, depending on how much lime the farmer requests. Kincade said each year the city’s lime sludge treats between 600 and 800 acres of area farmland, and each

application is typically effective for six to eight years. One of the most attractive aspects for both the city of Jerseyville and the farmers receiving the lime is the cost savings, according to Kincade. He said one of the greatest expenses in the process is the fuel required to transport and spread the product. “It’s an advantage to us to do the disposal without having to dry it out, cake it and put in to a landfill,” he said. “We have not yet been able to get any farmers to participate in the costs. We’re hoping eventually they will.” In 2013, the city spread 1.1 million gallons over fields belonging to four different farmers over the course of nine days. The total cost was $45,589.64, which included employee wages, tractor rentals, trucking charges, lab testing fees and fuel costs. Since 2000, the city has spent just more than $500,000 by spreading it over fields. If the city had to dispose of the leftover calcium carbonate in a landfill, the cost would be much greater. Kincade said a piece of equipment costing more than $1 million would need to be purchased to remove the water from the sludge. Then the costs of caking it, hauling it away and landfill fees would have to be figured in. He said areas in Rosedale Township have received a bulk of the liquified calcium carbonate. Even though the region is known for being rich in limestone, Kincade said farm soil becomes depleted. “As you farm a field, you’re removing all these nutrients from it,” he said. “You’re changing the pH of the soil and if it drops too much it’s hard to support the plants.” The water department is explor-

ing another way to help area farmers, as well. The sludge byproduct of the wastewater treatment facility may soon find its way to farmers’ fields. Kincade said the city may be a few years away from being able to market the sludge removed at the wastewater plant. He said the product would be use as a nitrogen fertilizer.

“I think that day may be coming because it’s a cheaper source of nitrogen than having anhydrous put down,” Kincade said. “It’s a lot safer product. Our only problem is the amount we generate isn’t enough to take care of all the farmers in the area.”

Smay awarded certificate of achievement

Eight-year-old Cade Smay of Wood River was awarded a certificate of achievement from the Madison County Regional Superintendent, Dr. Robert Daiber, on Saturday, May 10 in recognition of his story for the Illinois State Sponsored 2014 Young Authors Competition. Each year, students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade are encouraged to write, illustrate and submit an original book, which are judged in their local respective schools. The County Level winners from each school are invited to attend the Madison County Young Authors Conference in Edwardsville hosted by the Madison County Regional Office of Education. Cade’s book was one of seven total winning county level submissions from Central Elementary this year. During the conference, students had the opportunity to share their books, participate in literacy based activities and listen to accomplished award winning Children’s Author Jennifer Ward speak about the importance of writing. Students are also presented with a certificate by the Regional Superintendent of Education. This is Cade’s second time achieving this honor as a county representative; the first time was while he was in kindergarten at just six years old. His story for this winning submission is titled “The Bulldog and the Eagle.” It is a story about the two Roxana Elementary Schools mascots and his imaginative backstory involving a fire and these two brave animals saving children, explaining how they came to

CADE SMAy be deemed official mascots. Cade loves to read, write and create; when he grows up, Cade wants to be a video game designer and own a DeLorean. He is the son of Nathan and Christy Smay of Wood River and is a second grade student at Central Elementary School in Roxana. He has a fouryear-old brother, Leyton (who he has inspired to create his own picture books) and a 1-year-old brother, Lairn, to whom he enjoys reading stories. His grandparents are Martin and Melissa Smay of Kane, Deb and Dave Droege of Jerseyville, and the late Kevin Hatcher, formerly of Hardin. His surviving great-grandparents are Leslie H. Smay and Hubert Droege each of Jerseyville, and Gordon Cooley of Grand Junction, Colo.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP

Lady Warriors one win shy of 30 Calhoun clubs take top seeds into regionals Grace Baalman's latest two-hit shutout helped the Calhoun High School softball team win a 5-0 decision against Quincy Notre Dame Monday in Hardin. The Lady Warriors freshman, with six no-hitters on her resume this season, struck out 15 QND batters without surrendering a walk. Big sister Maddie Baalman's two doubles paced the Calhoun offense. The senior's second came with the bases loaded for a trio of runs batted in during the sixth inning. With the victory, Calhoun improved to 29-4 overall this season. The Lady Warriors were kept off the scoreboard for just the second time all season when Belleville East edged out a 1-0 victory Saturday at Calhoun High School. Grace Baalman gave up just one hit and tallied 15 strikeouts to three walks, but Belleville East scored an unearned run in the second inning that stood as the game-winner. Calhoun bounced back by blowing out New Berlin 27-2 to cap their two-game day Saturday in Hardin. Maddie Baalman went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and four runs scored while Samantha Gerson and Allie Hurley added three hits and as many runs each. Madison Lehr finished with a 2-for-5 game that included a triple, a double, five RBIs and a pair of runs scored. The Lady Warriors — Western Illinois Valley Conference South champions for four-straight seasons — will begin the quest for a fourth regional title in as many years at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at CHS. Calhoun is the top seed at the upcoming Hardin Class 1A Regional, but the tournament will begin in Southern Calhoun County with the No. 4 seed Brussels Lady Raiders hosting No. 5 Greenfield-Northwestern in a quarterfinal outing at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Brussels High School. The winner between the Lady Raiders (14-13) and Greenfield-NW will face Calhoun in the regional semifinals. No. 2 seed Carrollton, No. 3 North Greene and No. 6 Pleasant Hill round out the regional field.

TRI-COUNTY REAL ESTATE TOUR

The basics of property taxes Paying property taxes is a necessary side effect of home ownership. Across the United States and Canada, residents are required to pay property taxes based on an assessment of their homes' value. Taxes on land and the buildings on it are one of the biggest sources of revenue for local governments. In the United States, property taxes are not imposed by the states, but by the smaller governing bodies in cities, towns, townships, counties, and other jurisdictions. In Canada, property taxes, or milliage taxes, are levied by the jurisdiction in which the property is located. They may be paid to a federated state or a municipality or the national government. Sometimes multiple jurisdictions may tax the same property. In this tough economy, lowering property taxes (which are generally rolled into the mortgage amount for ease of payment) could substantially reduce bills. As many as 60 percent of properties across the United States are overassessed, according to the National Taxpayers Union, a nonprofit group that promotes lower taxes. If you suspect your property taxes

are high, here are the steps to take. n Get a copy of your property tax assessment from the local assessor's office and double-check all the information contained to see if it is correct. n Check the assessments of five comparable homes that have sold in your neighborhood in the last three years. n It's not possible to lower the property tax rate, just the assessed value of the home through an official appeal. There may be fees associated with this appeal, however. Some home improvements will increase the value of your home and, in turn, your property taxes. Here are some of the most common culprits: - extra stories to the home - outhouses, like a guest house - sports courts, like tennis - installation of an inground pool - improvements to fencing - addition of a garage or another room on the home A change in the status of a neighborhood can also give rise to higher property taxes. An influx of new residents or new construction of stores and homes can have a major effect on the assessed value of your home.

Illinois law enforcement out in force to remind motorists to ‘Click It or Ticket’ The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Illinois State Police and over 500 local law enforcement agencies have announced plans to crack down on seat belt law and impaired driving violators. To kick off the busy summer travel season, a two-week law enforcement mobilization will began May 9 and will run through Memorial Day, May 26. During this time, police will enforce seat belt, impaired driving and other traffic laws 24/7, with a large number of patrols occurring during late-night hours when the most unbuckled fatalities occur on Illinois roads. This mobilization coincides with the beginning of the busy summer travel season, when traffic is at its

highest. All too often the increase in traffic is followed by an increase in motor vehicle fatalities. While Illinois has remained below 1,000 fatalities for the last five years, the last two years have seen increases. As of May 7, total provisional motor vehicle fatalities in Illinois are 246, 84 below the same date last year. Illinois’ primary seat belt law originally enacted in 2003 has had a direct effect on keeping Illinois fatalities below 1,000 in recent years. In 2012, the Illinois primary seat belt law was expanded to every seating position meaning a ticket can be issued to an unbuckled motorist in the front and back seat. Seat belt laws are strongly enforced and advertised, bringing about a nearly 94 percent

front seat, daytime seat belt usage rate. However, back seat usage rates are much lower, and an even bigger problem is the number of unbuckled motor vehicle fatalities occurring during late night hours. “Even with nine out of 10 frontseat motorists buckling up in Illinois during the day, far too many people are still dying because they didn’t wear a seat belt, especially late at night,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider. “IDOT, the Illinois State Police and hundreds of dedicated local police and sheriff’s departments are saying today that needs to change.” The primary goal of “Click it or Ticket” is to get more people to buckle up during nighttime hours especial-

ly when other factors such as drunk driving play a large role in crashes. Provisional data shows 1,339 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts on Illinois roads from 2009 through 2013. Of those unbuckled fatalities occurring during these years, 650, or 49 percent, were killed during the 9 p.m. - 6 a.m. timeframe. These data show why the Illinois State Police and local law enforcement statewide are reminding motorists that seat belt enforcement will be stepped up in the coming weeks – especially at night. Motorists choosing to not buckle in every seating position will be ticketed. Motorists choosing to drive impaired will be arrested.

IDNR deer management update: First lottery for firearm deer season not affected The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) will make final decisions on deer hunting permit quotas and the counties open for late-winter antlerless-only seasons once all data, including the final deer-vehicle accident (DVA) statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation, are available sometime this summer. IDNR biologists have flexibility to close late-winter seasons and adjust county permit quotas for the traditional firearm season after lottery drawings have begun. “We are committed to making deer management decisions based on the best-available science, and we will make those determinations when all of the numbers are in hand.” said Illinois Department of Natural Resources Director Marc Miller. “The first two lottery drawings are generally all about participation,” said IDNR forest wildlife program manager Paul Shelton. “If at all possible, biologists try to ensure that quotas are sufficiently high to allow hunters to receive an either-sex permit for the county of their choice during those lottery periods. During the past several years, changes in permit quotas have primarily impacted the number of bonus permits that are available to hunters beginning with the random daily drawing periods in September. Hunters should not be concerned that participating in the firearm season lottery will have any negative effect on the status of the Illinois deer herd.” The deadline to apply for the first lottery for the 2014 firearm deer sea-

son was April 30. Last fall’s deer harvest numbers in Illinois were down more than 20 percent during the traditional firearm seasons, possibly due to a combination of back-to-back outbreaks of epizootic hemorrhagic (EHD) disease in 2012 and 2013; poor weather during firearm seasons; and, efforts to reduce deer numbers over several years. Since Illinois’ deer management goals are based on deer-vehicle accident rates, studying those data is essential to determining if individual county deer populations are at, above, or below their goal. “As we move into the permitting phase of the upcoming firearm deer seasons, the first lottery deadline provides us with an opportunity to update deer hunters on our progress and give them some insight into the process,” Miller said. “We value the input we have received from our constituents who are concerned about Illinois deer and deer management issues.” Biologists held a series of public deer meetings throughout the state last June, providing the opportunity for any interested party to ask questions and provide input. The IDNR has conducted surveys to gather additional information about Illinoisans’ (both hunters and nonhunters) opinions and ideas. Staff members respond on a daily basis to numerous letters, email, and media inquiries about deer management, deer harvest, deer diseases, and many other related issues. The IDNR is responsible for the management of white-tailed deer numbers

for all 13 million Illinois citizens, and as a result the agency must be responsive to a wide variety of desires and opinions. Deer management Q&A: Q: Why use deer-vehicle accidents as your index to deer population? A: DVA numbers correlate well to population trends and are a valuable index to herd status. Surveying the entire state by air would be nearly impossible, cost-prohibitive, and still not provide a definitive number. Road kill surveys are used to gauge population trends of many wildlife species. Q: Why does it take so long to get the numbers? A: The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will provide the numbers as soon as all accidents are entered in their database. It is a huge undertaking, and the IDNR is grateful to IDOT staff, who are working as quickly as possible to provide that data. Q: Won’t the deer-vehicle accident numbers come in too late to be useful this year? A: No. Biologists will have plenty of time to make changes after the numbers become available. Decisions on permit quotas and late-winter season counties will be made when all the data is available whether IDNR receives deer-vehicle numbers today or in July or August. Q: The IDNR website already lists dates for late-winter seasons. Why announce the late-winter seasons if the decisions haven’t been made yet?

A: Season dates have been established by administrative rule. Counties that are open for the late-winter season normally are announced by October. The latewinter season may still be needed in some counties. Listing the dates does not mean changes will not be forthcoming. Q: Why were some counties that were below a 14 percent reduction in deer-vehicle accidents in 2012 still open for the 2013 late-winter season? A: The statewide goal called for a 14 percent reduction in DVAs, which was achieved for the first time in 2012; but goals for individual counties varied widely. The formula was the same for calculating statewide and individual county goals. Initially set at a rate halfway between the lowest and highest DVA rates during the period 1994 – 2007, there have been some minor adjustments since then. DVA rates fluctuate, sometimes significantly, at the county level. For this reason, a county must be at or below goal for two years before a change to its latewinter season status is considered. Q: How can I find out more about IDNR’s decision-making process? A: We are working on new communication strategies to do a better job of sharing IDNR’s management goals, methods, and ultimately our decisions, with the public. In cooperation with the University of Illinois, development of a new website devoted to deer and deer management is underway. C

“Seat belt compliance remains a top priority for the Illinois State Police,” said Colonel Mike Zerbonia. “Click It or Ticket has proven to be an effective means of raising awareness and saving lives. ISP Troopers will continue enforcement efforts over the coming months.” “IDOT is utilizing federal safety dollars to assist Illinois law enforcement in providing more seat belt enforcement,” Secretary Schneider continued. “They’ll be out there during rush hour, during the morning commute and during those late night hours when the most unbuckled fatalities occur. If you’re caught unbuckled or driving drunk, you’ll be given a ticket or arrested. It is not about money; it’s not about tickets. It’s

about saving lives.” Over 1.4 million in federal safety dollars has been made available to the Illinois State Police and over 540 local law enforcement agencies to provide additional seat belt and drunk driving patrols during the two-week “Click It or Ticket” mobilization period. The federal dollars will fund thousands of seat belt enforcement zones and seat belt saturation patrols. Fifty percent or more of these patrols will occur during nighttime hours (9 p.m. to 6 a.m.). The mobilization also includes drunk driving enforcement including over 50 roadside safety checks. For more information about the Click It or Ticket campaign in Illinois, go to www.buckleupillinois.org.

Excellence in Mental Health Act to hit home On April 1, President Obama signed into law the Excellence in Mental Health Act. The new law promises improved access to community mental health services and better quality of care for those with mental health conditions. Karen Sopronyi-Tompkins, Chief Executive Officer for local behavioral health center WellSpring Resources, said the changes created by this new law will hit home in the Riverbend area. “We are excited that these changes are being made at a national level,” Sopronyi-Tompkins said. “The law will make significant improvements for people with mental health conditions, who tend to be part of an underserved and vulnerable population. I am not saying that people with mental health conditions are weak—many of our consumers are among the strongest, bravest people I know— but I am saying that there is a lack a resources to help them succeed.” Sopronyi-Tompkins said that the Alton area and many of its surrounding communities are considered to be a mental health professional shortage area according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration. This creates a problem for the estimated 421,000 adults and 142,000 children who live with serious mental health conditions in Illinois (NAMI, 2010). “Without treatment, people with mental health conditions are at an increased risk for unemploy-

ment, incarceration, homelessness, and physical health problems,” Sopronyi-Tompkins said. “These problems affect all of us, and that is why it is important that we provide support for mental health services at all levels—from the White House to our local courthouse. Accessible mental health services help keep our community and its residents healthy and productive.” The new law will invest $900 million in mental health demonstration projects in eight states to improve the reach and quality of mental health services. The law will also establish a certification program to define what constitutes a mental health center, ensuring uniformity in the delivery of services. For more information about WellSpring Resources and the mental health services it provides, call 618-462-2331 for the Alton office or 618-639-2010 for the Jerseyville office. Founded in 1959, WellSpring Resources is a total mental wellness resource serving Madison, Greene, Jersey, and Calhoun counties. With offices in Alton and Jerseyville WellSpring’s compassionate professionals work with children, adults and families to inspire hope and personal growth. Last year, over 6,000 people sought to change their lives for the better through WellSpring’s mental health and substance abuse services. Visit www.wellspringresources.co for more information.
