Federal charge brought against CHS teacher BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald A Calhoun High School teacher is facing state and federal charges after she allegedly left a type-written letter indicating a bomb was located in the high school building. During a detention hearing May 5 in East St. Louis, U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Wilkerson ordered Michelle Lynn Smith be remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals because she is a danger to the community and herself. The motion for detention filed May 5 notes the evidence in the case is strong and Smith admitted to the offense. It also states the false threat was dangerous to the community. Smith, 36, is a Jerseyville resident employed as a special education teacher at Calhoun High School. Smith was charged with falsely making a terror-

ist threat in Calhoun County, and an arrest warrant was issued May 1. 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. Superintendent Kate Sievers said Smith has a right to a hearing before being dismissed, and if she chooses to have one, the district will contact the Illinois State Board of Education for a hearing officer. The local charge alleged Smith left a typed letter indicating the presence of a bomb in the school April 28 at approximately 1 p.m. All students were evacuated from the building upon discovery of the letter, and no explosive device was found, according to an Illinois State Police press release issued May 1. A federal charge for conveying a false threat has also been brought

against Smith. Filed May 1, the criminal complaint alleged Smith left a threatening note, insinuating a bomb was in the building. According to the complaint, the letter stated “This school is going down today. KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,” and that “Everyone is going down, the school will b n flames.” In its final sentences, the letter stated “So long and GOOD-BYE!!!!!!!!!” Video surveillance is in place at the school and was used in identifying individuals who may have left the letter in the woman’s bathroom at the high school in the afternoon of April 28. Smith was identified as one of the individuals who entered the room prior to the threatening letter being found. Smith was taken into custody at approximately 6:45 p.m. April 29, and transported to Jersey County Jail. Law enforcement officials con-

ducted interviews with faculty and staff that entered the room – identified through video surveillance – during that time and all agreed to a voice stress analysis exam (a lie detector test). According to the federal complaint, Smith completed the exam at the Jerseyville Police Department and was interviewed afterward, at which point she allegedly admitted to creating the threatening document during her second hour preparatory period. “Smith also stated she used the first or second computer in a row of five computers which students have access to in her room,” the complaint states. “Smith stated she used one of those two computers because someone was already logged onto it so she was not required to use her login account information.” Smith had previously been employed at Calhoun Elementary

Kampsville marshal honored on state, national memorials By BOB CROSSEN Calhoun News-Herald More than 100 years after his death, Kampsville town marshal Charles Blevins Rose has been recognized on a state memorial and will be added to the national memorial May 12.

clerk has traditionally received a raise at the same time as the county clerk and treasurer, the commissioners did not include a raise for the office because it is not up for election this year. Robeen said raises should be given to elected officials at the end of their terms rather than in the middle. Chairman Doug Wilschetz agreed with that sentiment. Hagen said the circuit clerk is the only position in the county that may have its salary raise in the middle of a term because the state considers the office a non-judicial officer of the court. All other elected officials may only have a salary change go into effect after an election. However, the assessor’s pay may not be raised with the upcoming November election because Pat Langland, county assessor appointed by the commissioners, is running to fill the vacancy left by former assessor Brandi Kieffer who was removed from office in early 2013. The commissioners (See, RAISES, A2)

Rose had been the town marshall for Kampsville in the early 1900s, and on Oct. 16, 1911, as he was lighting the streetlights in the riverside town, a fight ensued. According to “Murder in Calhoun,” a document marking the court system history from 1821 to 1981, John Rose appeared in Hardin the morning after his brother’s death to get a warrant for Elmer Carter and William Carter. The Carters had been drinking the night

before when they created a disturbance, calling for law enforcement intervention. A fight broke out and Charles Rose died of knife wounds sustained during the scuffle. Elmer Carter was found guilty by the court and William Carter was discharged. David Surbeck’s grandfather is the brother of Rose’s wife. As a blood relative, the White Hall resident said he conducted a number of genealogical searches to learn about his family’s past, especially Rose’s 1911 death. He said some accounts note that Rose managed to get five shots off, injuring at least one person, before he was killed by the knife. And the ordeal made things difficult for the family. “It sure ruined the family. Left six kids of various ages and his wife in a river town in 1911,” Surbeck said. “Wasn’t a lot of jobs and it was hard times for sure. … His family really suffered for years.” He said the effort to get Rose onto the memorial began last summer when there was a paranormal investigation in the Kampsville area. Hosted in part by the Kampsville Museum, Surbeck said museum officials thought it would be noble to make a push for his addition to the state memorial for fallen officers and attempt to do the same at the national level.

(Continued from A1) Attending the event, Surbeck said the investigators noted Rose called out for help. “I said Charlie’s probably been doing that for 100 years. He was killed out here in 1911,” Surbeck said, adding he informed them of the story behind Rose’s death. On May 1, Rose was added to the state memorial in Springfield where Surbeck was joined by other family members related to Rose to commemorate his addition as a historic honoree. Rose is one of seven honorees to be added to the memorial this year, and four of those added are historic honorees like Rose. Rose is not the only Calhoun County officer to be a part of the memorial, however, as Sheriff John Lammy, Illinois State Trooper George L. Fredrickson and Chief Deputy Brian Gibbons are also on the memorial. Surbeck said his addition to the memorial was a good moment for the family.

The trustees approved Lee act as the chairman for license, park and cemetery committee. No other members were named to that committee. Friedel and Kallal will head up the health committee. Friedel will chair the water committee with Hurley as a member. Hurley, Lorsbach and Haug will cover the duties of the revolving loan fund. In other business, the board: n Approved the minutes of the previous meeting, the bills and the treasurer’s report. n Approved to issue a revolving loan to the Hardin Drive-In in the amount of $21,356 for an ice cream machine. n Discussed amending or creating an ordinance authorizing the village to charge for parking on its parking lot at the street department.

“There was a sadness to it, but also a feeling of honor that he was doing his job and just got overpowered by some people,” Surbeck said. “When you look at the memorial for Illinois and the one in Washington, D.C., there’s a lot of police officers that get killed.” Surbeck said he was impressed with the services in Springfield last week when there were hundreds of police officers walking in solidarity during a parade prior to the memorial service. “We sometimes just think, ‘That guy gave me a ticket,’” Surbeck said. “But there’s a lot of crazy people out there to deal with, too.” Rose will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial May 13, during the 26th annual candlelight vigil in Washington, D.C. during National Police Week.

(Continued from A1) agreed to address a raise in salary for the circuit clerk and assessor when they are up for election in 2016. The commissioners also approved a resolution regarding authorization for county departments to use credit cards for some purchases. The issue had been brought to the commissioners during the last regular meeting April 21 when Anita Baecht, ambulance director, requested the county allow the department to get a credit card for certain electronic payments for services. The resolution effects all county offices that have a charge card and forbids their use to purchase gift cards, drugs or alcohol. Unless first authorized by the commissioners at a regular board meeting, the cards may only be used to charge up to $500 each month for expenses in that department. They may not be debit cards and must be signed for from either the Bank of Calhoun or the Bank of Kampsville. The cards will be set up by the treasurer for accounting purposes. The commissioners also approved to allow Nate Sagez, owner and operator of the Calhoun Crunch, to install a basketball hoop at the concrete pad outside the old grade school in Hardin. He said he had some extra money from Crunch Fest, held May 1, that he could use for a new basketball hoop at the frequently-used basketball location. The hoop uses a concrete base to keep it held firmly in the ground, and does not have an adjustable rim height to prevent players from jumping and hanging from the rim, the primary reason the previous hoops were damaged. Robeen and Larry Wieneke, commissioner, said the children in Hardin play basketball at the pad quite often and were strongly in favor of an updated hoop at the location. The commissioners approved its installation in a unanimous vote, excluding a vote from Gene Breden who was not present. In other business, the commissioners: n Approved road construction on Franklin Hill Road.

n Approved pasture leases with notices to be sent out to the winning bidders. n Discussed preliminary budget planning procedures in which the finance committee has requested all county offices submit a budget to the committee by June 5.

She said Smith is on paid administrative leave. Sievers said the district is actively working to create more safeguards to prevent future threats and to ensure students are safe at school.

According to court documents filed in January 2008 in Jersey County, Smith was charged with two separate misdemeanor counts of harassment by phone. One count alleged she had threatened Schell 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. Though the 2008 charges were not prosecuted, Smith was directed to seek psychiatric counseling, and was forbidden from making contact with the Schell and Goetten

To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1:7

Do you expect to become a Saint? Perhaps you should. Have you ever noticed that just about every person in the Bible who is chosen by God for some important mission balks at the idea? It almost seems as if it is "bad form" to be too ready and willing to be God's standard-bearer. Moses was full of excuses for why he couldn't be God's mouthpiece, chief among them that he didn't speak well. Young Samuel thought he was hearing his master Eli's voice when he was really hearing the voice of God. And, even Jesus appeared to have His moment of doubt, asking His heavenly Father to "remove this cup from me" in the garden at Gethsemane (Mark 14: 36). The life of a saintly person is likely to be more filled with doubts than that of the ordinary man or woman, not less. Perhaps that is because so much more is asked of the saintly man and woman. How could one fail to be doubtful when facing such fearful circumstances as martyrdom? Ultimately, we are all called to be saints, because God is both our origin and our ultimate goal. - Christopher Simon

Illinois Conservation Police arrest three in Carlyle Lake duck poaching case Illinois Conservation Police have arrested three men in connection with a March duck poaching incident at Carlyle Lake Wildlife Management Area near Vandalia. Steven Dean of Granite City, along with Bradley Peters and Daniel Groves of Wood River, were arrested on April 25. The three men face felony charges for their alleged involvement in the illegal killing of more than 30 ducks out of season on March 6. The illegal killings included northern pintail and mallard species and left several ducks crippled. “We are grateful to members of the public and to the media for publicizing this case and providing support for our officers,” said Rafael Gutierrez, Chief of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Office of Law Enforcement. “Illinois Conservation Police Officers stand with hunters and conservationists to prevent poaching whenever possible and to find those

migratory birds. The McLean-Weeks Act was replaced in 1918 by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Duck hunting season closed Jan. 7, 2014 in the South Central Zone which includes Carlyle Lake. Northern pintails numbered 3.3 million on the breeding grounds in the north-central United States and Canada last May, according to aerial surveys. That figure is 17 percent below the long-term average. Waterfowl biologists and habitat managers have worked hard to keep pintail numbers at levels high enough to sustain harvest. During the most recent duck season, hunters were limited to two pintails, compared with a limit of four mallards. Information that led to the arrests was received through an anonymous tip made to the Illinois T.I.P. (Target Illinois Poachers) hotline at 877-236-7529. All tips remain anonymous.

Calhoun Unit 40 releases statement regarding bomb threat Calhoun Community Unit School District No. 40 Superintendent Kate Sievers states: “On Monday, April 28, 2014, the High School was evacuated due to a bomb threat. A thorough search of the building was conducted by law enforcement officers. No bomb or other explosive

device was found and the district was assured that students and staff could safely return to the building. The school district is investigating the incident and cooperating with law enforcement. The district will continue to take all appropriate measures to protect students and staff.”

Conservation Congress 2014: The results are in Acquiring new wildlife habitat, strengthening conservation laws and expanding the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ constituencies through outreach emerged as the top priorities during Conservation Congress 2014. Priorities identified reflected the theme of the meeting: Charting a Course to Protect and Preserve Our Natural Resources. The event was held April 11-12 at Illinois Department of Natural Resources Headquarters in Springfield. “Conservation Congress provides a chance for us to have open and direct discussion with those who care deeply about conservation in Illinois,” said IDNR Director Marc Miller. “During past Conservation Congress meetings, constituents have helped us chart a course toward sustainable funding and provided valuable input on other important issues. It also gives agency personnel a chance to explain what we are doing and why, especially when it comes to complex biological and regulatory decisions.” The event featured panel discussions on the agency’s role as conserver of Illinois’ natural resources and the future of apex predators in Illinois. In addition, IDNR staff facilitated 12 breakout sessions with members of the public providing their recommendations to move

issues forward. • Members of the public can see archived webcasts of both days, including the panel discussion on apex predators held April 12 at: http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/ConservationCongress/Pages/default.aspx. • In addition, visitors to the website can see how Conservation Congress attendees voted • The public will be able to review recommendations • Comments will be accepted through the website until May 23 • IDNR will provide progress reports periodically Conservation Congress began in 1993. It was initially modeled after the Illinois General Assembly to include representatives from a variety of constituent groups around the state. Conservation Congress was discontinued in 2003. Under the leadership of Gov. Pat Quinn and Director Miller, Conservation Congress was reinstituted in 2009. And this year, members of the public were invited to participate and work hand-in-hand with IDNR to create a fresh set of priorities moving forward. The IDNR greatly appreciates the public’s input to help shape the future work of the agency. After reviewing all comments, the agency will provide an updated recommendation report.

Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is urging parents to talk with their child’s doctor about the new school-entrance vaccination requirements, and to make sure their child’s immunizations are up-todate. This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Infant Immunization Week, April 26 – May 3, an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. “While some vaccine-preventable diseases are relatively rare in the U.S., they are only a plane ride away. Such diseases can be brought into the country by travelers, putting unvaccinated children at risk,” said Dr. Hasbrouck. “National Infant Immunization Week is a reminder to parents to make sure their children are up-to-date on immunizations. Immunization is a shared responsibility. Families, healthcare professionals and public health officials must work together to help protect the entire community.” One example of the seriousness of vaccine-preventable diseases is the current mumps outbreak in central Illinois. Preliminary numbers show more than 65 cases have been reported so far this year, compared with approximately 26 all of last year and 32 in 2012. While the majority of cases in this outbreak are in adults, unvaccinated children and children not fully vaccinated could be at an increased risk of illness. To help prevent illness and outbreaks due to vaccine-preventable diseases, Illinois is implementing new immunization requirements for the 2014-2015 school year. Beginning next year, children entering school at any grade level (kindergarten through 12) need to show proof

of having received two doses each (instead of just one) of rubella and mumps vaccines. In addition, any child entering kindergarten, sixth grade or ninth grade for the first time shall show proof of having received two doses of varicella (chicken pox) vaccine. For the following school year, 2015-2016, students will need to show proof of having received a meningococcal vaccination, something that is currently not required. For school entrance, students must show proof of diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, haemophilus influenza type b, hepatitis b, varicella and pneumococcal (depending on age) vaccinations. More information about immunizations, including vaccination schedules, visit www.idph.state. il.us/about/shots.htm. Providing essential health information is one way IDPH is continuing its mission of protecting health, improving lives and implementing IDPH’s Five Year Strategy. For a copy of the strategic plan, go to http://www.idph.state.il.us/about/ StrategicPlan_Final_2014-2018.pdf. Kindergarten requirements: physical, eye exam, dental exam, lead screening, immunizations ( Five Dtap, four Polio, two MMR, three Hep B, four Hib, two Varicella) Second Grade requirements: dental exam Sixth grade requirements: physical, Tdap, and Meningitis vaccine Ninth grade requirements: physical, Meningitis vaccine Any questions call Calhoun’s school nurse at 576-2341. Requirements must be met and forms turned in for your child to start school so make appointments now and turn in at registration.

Calhoun Quilt and Church Tour collecting ads CCF’s Annual Calhoun Quilt and Church Tour is collecting ads from interested parties to be included in flyers and printed materials advertising the 8th Quilt and Church Tour. Most advertisers in the past have been individually contacted, but should you wish to be included and have not been approached, please drop your ad information or donation off at the Extension Office in Hardin on Tuesdays and Thursdays until May 15. Ads or donations may also be mailed to CCF/Quilts at P.O. Box 176, Hardin, IL 62047. Ads are $30, with Benefactors $100-$499, and Patrons $500+. Ads should be received no later

than May 15, as advertising for the Tour will begin in earnest in late May and June. The ads help to defray the cost of rentals, advertising, insurance and miscellaneous expenses. The Calhoun Quilt and Church Tour helps CCF sponsored programs, such as the Dental Van last year, a Partnership with Alton Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, and the Barn Quilt Trail, to name a few. This year CCF was able to sponsor the stl250 Cakeway to the West program with participation that will broaden our appeal to visitors and become an added attraction. In addition, CCF awards grants for community projects to benefit the residents of Calhoun County.

CCF Foundation recognizes volunteers The Calhoun Community Foundation met on April 22 and listened to presentations from community members regarding their projects, programs, and initiatives that were in need of support. In addition to the many programs sponsored by CCF volunteers, other volunteer organizations were recognized for their efforts to improve Calhoun County in the areas of health, economic development and wellbeing. Mini-grants were awarded to fund or partially fund 5 projects in Calhoun County. The Visitor’s Center in Brussels was awarded a grant through Gloria Marieneau for a project that will fund the printing of brochures that advertise businesses, events, and services in our county. The Bridging Generations program with Deann Fester as applicant was awarded a grant for a Calhoun County Historical Coloring Book that will be student produced and sold as a visitors’ guide with GPS coordinates to histori-

cal locations. The Calhoun County Fair received a grant through Diane Stelbrink and Penny Loft for partial funding needed to install a new metal roof on the office building and restrooms located on the Fairgrounds in Hardin. Lynn Robinson will lead The Calhoun Art Guild in a project partially funded by CCF, called Deer on the Move. Profit from this countywide project will fund free art classes for students from our local schools. The final grant award was presented to the Calhoun Recycling Project, with Trish Stelbrink and Pam Browning as volunteers. The CCF will pay for the recycling of three loads of items collected by this initiative. The CCF Board also voted to sponsor this initiative so that future funding can be generated through CCF’s 501(c)3. Depending on available funds, the CCF will continue to award grants locally with applications available again next year.

■ Kampsville News Happy birthday to our neighbors, Damian age 11 and Amelia age 4. Their birthdays are just one week apart. Their parents, Josh and Tina, had a cookout for them last Sunday. Kids, kids everywhere. As you probably have heard millions of times, I am not very computer savvy. Our printer at home quit working so we bought one at Walmart Sunday. Of course, there were none like our old one that I loved, so we had to get a bigger one. Today, Monday, the printer is still sitting there laughing at us. We have tried everything and nothing works. I have, at this moment, got the computer off and can’t get it back on. I have also, got the minutes of last month’s board meeting on the computer,

and the meeting is Tuesday. I love it when my week starts like this. I am, at this moment writing these items at the Village Hall. My brother-in-law, Deener Schumann, is residing at Calhoun Care getting therapy for a month or so. We visited him Thursday, and he was in good spirits, and said he was doing well with his treatments. If, you are in Hardin in the afternoon, drop by and see him. He is in therapy all morning. News flash!!!! Dustin Neese stopped by, and I told him my sad story, and ended up taking him to the house, and he has me up and going. So great to have young people who help us out when we are in a bind. Redeye has to go to St. Louis Tuesday, and swallow a tiny cam-

era that will dissolve. He has to remain at the hospital for eight hours. Becky is taking us, and was able to get me an appointment at Siteman to get blood work and another scan of my liver. Keeping my fingers crossed that both of us have good news. The Golden Corral restaurant has moved next door to the Buick dealership in Alton. We ate there Sunday, and there is quite a change. There was such a large crowd we didn’t get to look around, but a major change was made. They have a much larger parking lot now. Please continue praying for everyone with cancer and/or other dread diseases. And how was your week???? See you next week.

week-end before the family all gathered at their home for family photos taken by Ida Mae Photography. Later that day they all enjoyed dinner at Point Pleasant. Many more “happy and healthy” years together Larry and Barb! Don’t forget this coming Sunday is Mother’s Day. A day set aside to honor our mothers and as Abraham Lincoln once said “All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my mother”. It has also been said that the home is the primeval school, the best, the most hallowed, and the most potential of all academies, and that the mother is the first, the most influential and therefore the most important of all teachers. Be sure to visit or call your mother on her special day and let her know how important she is to you. A nice gift would be appropriate as well. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! Vacation Bible School at St. Matthew’s will be held June 9 through 13 with a closing ceremony on Saturday evening, June 14. Applications to attend will be mailed in the very near future. Birthday greetings this week to my granddaughter Mackenzie Axford, also Richard Meyer, Chris Titus, Kaden Nolte, Jared Held, Patricia Goetze, Chris Kinder, Jessica Kinder and all others celebrating their natal day at this time. Happy Anniversary to Dennis and Jeanne Johnes, Everette and Dorothy Meyer, Francis and Liz Toppmeyer, Pete and Janet Fuller, Ervin and Rita Nolte, Art and Margie Tepen, Norbert and Mary Ann Tepen and all other couples celebrating a wedding anniversary this week.

Tips for dining out on Mother's Day Mother's Day is right around the corner, and this special holiday serves to honor all those women who devote so much time and effort to their families. While gifts and other trinkets are certainly part of the celebration, a vast majority of children opt to treat Mom to a night out on the town come Mother's Day. Not only does this give mom a night off from cooking, but also it presents an opportunity to get dressed up and spend time together as a family. n Book early ... very early. To guarantee a reservation at any restaurant, namely your favorite restaurant, you will need to make a reservation well in advance of Mother's Day. It's never too early to put your name on the reservation list. Don't forget Mother's Day is Sunday, May 11, 2014. n Expect to wait. Even with a reservation, you're bound to spend some time waiting at the restaurant. Other families may be lingering at their tables, as no one wants to rush Mom out of the door. Plan accordingly for a potentially long wait time. This means having a snack before you leave. Don't arrive famished, as no one wants the dining party to be hungry and cranky, which is not a good way to celebrate Mom. Have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand for young children, as well as activities to keep them entertained. n Consider dining out a day before or after. Restaurants are generally packed on Mother's Day, and as a result kitchen and wait staffs might be overtaxed. What's more, diners might be relegated to a special or abbreviated menu. If you want a more relaxed set-

ting and the ability to order whatever you desire, it may be a better idea to celebrate Mother's Day in advance. Then have Mom enjoy a relaxing day at home on her special day. n Take-out is an option. Families can treat Mom to a dinner out, without really having to go out. Many restaurants offer takeout service, so you will not be limited to pizza or Chinese. Even chain restaurants have curbside service, so if Mom is in the mood for

a burger or something more elaborate, she'll have that option. n Expect an included gratuity. Restaurants often include a gratuity in the bill when servicing larger parties, such as those that might be celebrating Mother's Day. The standard gratuity rate is 18 percent, but you may want to go above and beyond if you feel the service is exemplary. n Hire a sitter for young kids. Although Mother's Day is a chance for

the entire family to spend time together, the main goal is to ensure Mom's comfort and happiness. If very young children are in tow, she may not be able to relax and enjoy her meal. Infants will need to be fed, and toddlers may be easily distracted. Have a sitter watch little ones when adults are dining out, and then Mom can enjoy time with the kids when she returns home for more celebrating.

Give the gift of green for Mother's Day Mom may appreciate chocolate or flowers. But for children who want to offer her something a little more special -- especially for their eco-conscious moms -- there are a number of different gift options to make Mom's big day as eco-friendly as it is enjoyable. An eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift idea list, think about adding these "green" gifts. n Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother's tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. Finish the gift with the inclusion of a book that describes different garden designs and gives tips for beginners. n Dine at a local restaurant. Many families take Mom out for a meal on her special day. To make the experience eco-friendly, select among restaurants that are close to home in the area. Explore the

Many countries have passed laws that legally mandate paid leaves for mothers of newborns. In fact, according to the International Labour Organization, since 2010, when Australia passed its own parental leave law mandating paid leave, the United States has been the only industrialized nation that does not guarantee paid leave for mothers of newborns. No country is more generous to mothers of newborns with regard to paid leave than Russia, which allows mothers to take 140 days with 100 percent pay after their children are born. Brazil (100 days), France and Spain (112), Germany (98), and China (90) round out the top six, while Indonesia, India and Mexico mandate that new mothers receive 100 percent of their pay for 84 days after giving birth. Australia offers 126 days of paid leave at the federal minimum wage, while the United Kingdom offers 280 days of leave, the first six weeks of which are offered at full salary, while the remaining days are paid on a flat rate.

possibilities of restaurants that may serve foods made with local, organic ingredients. If you cannot find such a restaurant, do not worry, just choose a local establishment to conserve fuel. n Pay for a car tune-up. Improving the gas mileage on Mom's car is one gift that can be environmentally friendly. According to the United States Department of Energy, keeping a car in shape can help save money and improve fuel economy. Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve Mom's gas mileage by as much as 40 percent. Also, be sure to have her car tires properly inflated. She can be losing gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in all four tires. Getting an oil change with the recommended grade of motor oil is another gas mileage improvement measure. n Purchase eco-friendly kitchen items. It may be a major faux pas to give Mom an appliance or a new vacuum for Mother's Day. However, if your mother is an avid cook or baker, she may appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping

straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails and outdoor entertaining. n Pamper mom with organic products. What mom doesn't enjoy a little pampering from time to time? You can treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find. n Select organic fruits and flowers. Companies like www. organicbouquet.com can assemble a bouquet made from responsibly grown flowers or even a wreath for a wall or door. They also have food gifts, from organic fruits to nuts. n Spend the day outdoors. Most moms cherish any gift from their children, whether lavish or simple. A nice, eco-friendly gift is to spend time together. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the seaside for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure from the sea. Plan to finish the day with a homemade, picnic lunch.

Aubrey Gilman and Elaina Roth are wearing the Earth-friendly hats.

On Wednesday, April 23, the kindergarten and first grade classes at Calhoun Elementary celebrated Earth Day. All of the 55 children involved were divided into five groups. Each group visited an area where an Earth friendly activity took place. Those five activities were: A nature hike, Cleaning out and planting in our flower garden, a sorting activity involving recycling materials, painting flower pots, and discussion on the three R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), and a recycling wheel to color and use. The goal was for all of the children to learn how to take care of our Earth and have fun, too.

Nursing trends show a profession in transition

Explore the many hats worn by nurses Enter a hospital, doctor's office, adult care facility or medical clinic and you are bound to encounter nurses. Nurse is a broad term used to describe most individuals who perform patientbased care in a variety of settings. A nurse's duties and title will vary depending on his or her educational background and the certifications and licenses he or she has received. The field of nursing is seemingly recession-proof. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are roughly 2.6 million nurses in the United States. No other career choice within the field of healthcare can claim such strength in numbers, both in the United States. and Canada. There are many advantages to becoming a nurse, including growing employment opportunities. Over the next 20 years, the BLS predicts 800,000 vacancies in the field of nursing in the United States. alone. Financial gain is to be had as well. Depending on the type of nurse, he or she has the potential to make anywhere between $43,000 and $115,000 a year, according to the BLS' Occupational Employment Statistics Program. Furthermore, because of the wide breadth of nursing services, there is plenty of room for specialty application and advancement. Here are the common types of nurses and the type of education required to become a nurse. n Nursing aide/orderly: Nursing aides and orderlies help nurses care for patients and perform routine tasks. They spend most of their time with patients, serving meals, keeping patients comfortable, answering call lights, making beds, and giving baths. Most nursing aides work in a hospital setting or long-term facilities for the elderly. A high school diploma may be all that's needed to become a nursing aide. n Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN): An LPN studies for a year after earning a high school diploma and must be licensed in the state in which he or she will work. LPNs typically record medical histories, weigh and measure patients, record symptoms, and administer injections. n Registered Nurse (RN): AnRN typically pursues a two-year Associate's

The healthcare industry is changing rapidly, and nurses, the largest group of healthcare professionals in the nation, are at the forefront of these changes. Despite the difficult economic conditions of recent years, nursing as a profession has thrived -particularly when compared to other professions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job growth for nurses will continue to be more rapid than the national average, making the profession among the best career choices available today. So what can nurses and those considering entering the field expect over the next decade? The demand for nurses will continue. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be nearly 712,000 new nursing positions by 2020, making this profession the fastest growing occupation. One of the factors fueling the growth is the aging population, and there will be great demand for nurses who are trained in geriatrics and who are able to work in ambulatory (i.e., outpatient) settings. More nurses will work in outpatient settings, home healthcare, and nursing homes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics also projects that hospital nursing jobs will grow much more slowly than jobs in outpatient facilities and home health care. This is due both to the growth of the aging population and the increase in the number of medical procedures done on an outpatient basis or in homes. Hospitals will increasingly require RNs to have four-year degrees. Many hospitals have begun hiring only those nurses with BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) degrees or providing incentives for their employees with two-year associate degrees to return to school to earn their BSNs. Similarly, many nurses with BSNs are heading back to the classroom to become master's degree-level nurse practitioners. Nurses are getting younger and older. During the last decade, a variety of efforts were made to make nursing more attractive to younger people. As a result, the number of

younger nurses (ages 23 to 26) has grown significantly. This is expected to help offset the mass retirement of nurses that is expected to occur between now and 2020. At the same time, more people are entering the profession later in their careers as a result of the proliferation of two-year and accelerated nursing programs that were developed largely to attract people from other fields. Nursing educators will be in demand as well. Nursing program faculty will be among the retirees who will leave the profession over the next decade and there is expected

to be a shortage of nurse educators to take their places. Technology will continue to alter how nurses operate and learn. Come 2014, all medical records will be electronic, so nurses will be saying a final good-bye to their black pens and a big hello to keyboards and tablets. In hospitals, nurses will continue to rely on texting to relay messages or provide information to doctors. Technology, in the form of digital textbooks, mobile phone applications that access drug information and simulated online clinics, will continue to alter how nursing students learn.

Thank you to all our Nurses and Nursing Staff! 400 Maple Summit Rd. Jerseyville • (618) 498-6402 www.jch.org File Photo

degree in nursing or may receive a Bachelor's degree in the field. RNs must pass a national exam before they are licensed. The duties of an RNare generally more varied and in-depth than those of an LPN and can include helping patients manage treatment plans. n Nurse practitioner (NP): Nurse practitioners are among the most educated hospital employees. In addition to their RN study, they earn a Master's

degree and may specialize in one area. Also, NPs may be able to work outside of the authority of a physician. In such instances, an NP can run a medical practice, diagnose and prescribe medication just as a doctor would. Although doctors are often thought of as the primary care providers in most healthcare settings, nurses are growing in numbers and have taken on many of the roles once reserved exclusively for doctors.

Sidestepping foot, hip and back pain critical for nurses Nurses work hard. And virtually all of that hard work, from administering medication to hanging IVs to moving patients and equipment, is done standing up on hard surfaces. So it's no surprise that many nurses experience foot and back pain after a long day -- or night -- on the job. Millions of people in physically demanding occupations experience chronic back, hip and foot pain. Repeated strain on the feet, hips and back not only causes pain but also gradually reduces the ability of muscles to recuperate quickly. As a result, healthcare professionals such as doctors, chiropractors and massage therapists spend countless hours treating patients whose pain and discomfort stem from job-related injuries. For nurses, these ailments and injuries are difficult to avoid. In fact, research shows that nurses suffer from lower back pain more than people in any other profession. The constant physical demands of the profession also prevent nurses from getting enough rest between shifts, which can exacerbate both the problem and the pain. While treatments for foot, hip and back pain can be effective, nurses can also take steps to prevent strain in the first place. The following are a few proven strategies for staying healthy and injury-free on the job. n Wear the right shoes. Nurses need shoes that fit well and provide proper support. Since it is important to give shoes a day to air out before being worn again, it's best to have more than one pair of work shoes. Full-time nurses should replace their shoes every six months. n Bend right. Always be aware

of how you move your body. When lifting equipment or moving patients, give your back a break. Instead, bend at your knees and let your legs do the work. n Turn, don't twist. Lifting and twisting can strain the lower back. When picking up heavy equipment or even a patient, plant your feet firmly on the floor for support. As you turn,

be sure to move both your feet and your body. n Make a move. Holding equipment or patients in one place for a prolonged period can put enormous strain on the neck, shoulders and back. Whenever possible, ask for help or relief. At the very least, stretch out once you're done.

Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders took us on a trip down memory lane as they sang the song “Let It Be.” During the entertainment intervals, several of our guests participated in a friendly game of “Family Feud.” The teams tried to match survey responses to questions asked of the SMS students. It was quite entertaining to hear some of the responses. At the conclusion of the program the stu-

dents gathered to sing “Grandma We Love You, Grandpa We Do.” Each of the guests were then able to pick their special-made flower from the “Wall of Gratitude” and received a packet of flowers to add to their gardens at home. Refreshments were served and the students enjoyed visiting with their grandparents. Our grandparents mean so much to us. They always give us inspiration and encouragement to be the best we can be. Thank you to all of our grandparents and special friends for being there for us!

22nd annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive United Way of Greater St. Louis will participate in the nation’s largest one-day food drive, the 22nd annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 10. Hosted by the local branches of the National Association of Letter Carriers, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive collected more than 74.4 million pounds of non-perishable food across America in 2013. Place unopened, non-perishable food next to your mailbox in a bag before your letter carrier delivers your mail on Saturday, May 10.

Peanut butter, soups, canned tuna or chicken are favorites. Any nonperishable canned good that can be considered a complete meal is desired. Food Drive statistics: n In 2013, the local letter carriers collected more than 731,843 pounds of food in one day across the St. Louis metro region. n According to St. Louis Area Foodbank, nearly 500,000 people in the Foodbank’s 26-county service territory are food insecure. The demand for food from its network

of more than 500 area food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and feeding programs has increased dramatically over the last few years. n Foodbank distributed 35 million pounds of food in 2013 – an increase of almost 10 million pounds from the previous year. n According to Feeding America, children make up the largest segment of the population in need of food assistance.

Recently the third through sixth grade students at St. Mary’s School participated in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design contest. Cortney Solum from the Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge came to our school to speak to our students about habitats of waterfowl. She then invited the students to take part in the art competition. Several of our students’ artwork earned an Honorable Mention Award.

The awards ceremony was held on Sautrday April 12 at the University Museum on the campus at SIUC. The keynote speaker was Dr. Eicholz, assistant Professor of the Dept. of Zoology and an ecologist with Cooperative Wildlife Research Lab at SIU. Presentations of awards were made by Kim King-Wrenn fthe IL State Coordinator for the Junior Duck Stamp Program.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP

Calhoun clubs sweep WIVC South Baalman pitches first perfect game Well, it's safe to say things are going pretty well over at the high school in Hardin. Calhoun High School clinched this season's Western The Sam Antics Illinois Valley By Sam Elliott Conference South baseball and softball championships by finishing off season sweeps of rival Carrollton Thursday in Hardin. It was the first such title for the Warriors baseball program in quite some time. But winning the WIVC South has become commonplace for the CHS softball team. Oh and then freshman Grace Baalman pitched a five-inning perfect game with eight strikeouts during a 16-0 win against Payson Seymour Monday at Calhoun. The Lady Warriors won their fourth-straight league championship by sweeping a doubleheader with 8-2 and 12-3 wins Thursday in Hardin. This season's senior class has known nothing but WIVC South supremacy during their high school careers. "What more could they ask for?" head coach Matt Baalman said. I'm sure they wouldn't mind

Lady Warriors senior Elani Godar is welcomed to home plate by cheering teammates after hitting a home run during the Calhoun High School softball team's 12-3 win against Carrollton Thursday in Hardin. Calhoun swept its doubleheader with the Lady Hawks to guarantee the school its fourth-straight Western Illinois Valley Conference South championship. Freshman Grace Baalman, pictured far left, pitched a perfect game during the Lady Warriors' 16-0 win in five innings against Payson Seymour Monday at CHS. She struck out eight of 15 batters faced and was one of four Lady Warriors — including Becca Oswald, Allie Hurley and Madison Lehr — to drive home three runs while Sara Brodbeck hit her second home run of the season. michaelrweaver.com

a trip back to the IHSA Class 1A state tournament. They made it there as freshmen and brought back a fourth-place

finish, but have but tripped up in super-sectionals each of the past two seasons. Riding a five-game winning streak following their victory against Payson Seymour, the Lady Warriors are 24-3 this season and a league best 7-0 within the WIVC South. "We’ve got confidence in our bats," coach Baalman said. "Not many teams are going to score more than two or three off Grace unless Grace starts having control issues, but she’s done all right." Calhoun's starting pitcher of the past three seasons — and Grace's older sister — Maddie Baalman has made her return to the Lady Warriors lineup

after sustaining a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the 2013 volleyball postseason. Through her first 32 plate appearances, she's tallied a .360 batting average with one double, six runs batted in and as many runs scored. With her return, Calhoun has nine batters hitting better than .320 this season. Six are hitting at least .405. Senior Samantha Gerson leads the team with a .512 batting average while sophomore Emma Baalman is close behind at .506 and Grace Baalman's batting .494. With numbers like that, it's hard not to like the Lady Warriors' chances at making yet another

long and successful playoff run. Not to be outdone, the Warriors baseball team capped their 2014 WIVC South season by beating Carrollton 4-3 to clinch the league championship with a 7-1 conference record Thursday in Hardin. The Warriors reached 20 wins by beating Payson Seymour 7-3 Monday at Calhoun High School. Now 20-11 overall, the Warriors have won nine of their past 11 games. "Our schedule early in the season was heavy with 2A, 3A and 4A schools," CHS coach Casey Longnecker said. "Now we’re mostly playing schools our size and we’re starting to build some wins up and get some confidence."

Both Calhoun's baseball and softball squads visited West Central Tuesday to begin the regular season's home stretch, but results were not available at press time. The season continues when the Warriors host Routt at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in Hardin and the Lady Warriors visit Griggsville-Perry at 4:30 p.m. Friday. One of Illinois' best softball teams will visit Hardin Saturday when Belleville East comes for a doubleheader beginning at 11 a.m. at Calhoun High. The two-game set looks to be the Lady Warriors' toughest test before beginning postseason play by hosting a regional tournament in Hardin. selliott@campbellpublications.net

Calhoun High School senior Maddie Baalman makes contact on a pitch against Carrollton Thursday in Hardin. After tearing her anterior cruciate ligament during Calhoun's volleyball season and missing the 2013-14 basketball campaign, Baalman has returned to the lineup for six games. She's totaled a .360 batting average with six runs batted in after 32 plate appearances.

TRI-COUNTY REAL ESTATE TOUR

Shopping for a garden storage shed Caring for a freshly sodded lawn

File Photo

Storage space is often a coveted commodity. Apartment dwellers seek out more closet space, homeowners may desire more acreage, and even children may want more space for their toys and belongings. The purchase of a storage shed could alleviate some clutter issues and move items outdoors -- creating more space. Household garages are no longer as popular for storing vehicles. Instead, garages are used to store the extra items that do not fit inside the home. Many people even turn to self-storage units for extra storage space. According to the Self Storage Association, the storage industry earned roughly $20 billion in revenues across North America in 2010. It has also been the fastest-growing segment of the commercial real estate industry for the last 30 years and is considered to be recession-proof. Garden storage sheds present another place where individuals can keep items out of sight but easily accessible. As garages fill up with belongings quite quickly, many homeowners think about a shed purchase to at least keep outdoor lawn and garden essentials in their own place. The process of purchasing a shed is not as simple as finding the least or most expensive type on the market. There are other factors that come into play when selecting a shed. * Appearance and design: Although the function of a shed is to store items out of sight, the shed itself will be in full view in a yard. Therefore, plenty of homeowners prefer something that has just as much aesthetic appeal as it does storage capacity. An unsightly shed can affect the overall appearance of a property, or even hurt the sale price for homeowners thinking about putting the home on the market. It's

important to select a shed in a price range that also complements the style of he home so it coordinates with other features. Some people choose to have a custom-built shed that can replicate the architectural style of the home and even features the same siding and finishing materials. * Size: Sheds come in a variety of sizes, from compact locker-sized sheds to large buildings that may even double as a garden room, pool room or kids' playhouse. Homeowners should keep in mind that the size of the shed may have to meet local municipality rules for additions or structural changes to a property. A larger shed may require a permanent flooring material, such as concrete, and may be subject to permit applications and inspections, whereas a smaller shed may not have such stringent requirements. Furthermore, certain towns actually may restrict the size and placement of a shed if it interferes with traffic visibility or impacts a neighbor in a negative way. * Minor enhancements: Touches like decorative architectural features, window boxes, shutters, or even simply planting shrubs and annuals around the shed can make it an integral part of the landscape instead of simply an eyesore. Double doors will ensure large pieces of equipment can fit inside the shed. The addition of a pressure-treated ramp at the entryway provides easy access to the shed as well. Storage sheds can provide muchneeded space for homeowners. Certain features as well as cost need to be factored into the decision before purchase. Homeowners should compare chain home improvement stores as well as private retailers to find a shed that is the best fit.

Sod, sometimes called turf, can quickly turn a barren landscape into a rich, thick carpet of green. Homeowners hoping to revive their lawns commonly turn to sod as the quickest means to do just that. However, once the sod has been laid down, few homeowners may know how to keep it looking its best. Sod is real grass that is grown on special farms. It is generally grown locally to avoid long transport times that could dry out the product. Sod is typically sold in squares or rolls of grass that come with the roots and soil already attached. There may be some sort of thin backing material on the sod to keep the grass blades together. Sodding a lawn is a major investment, costing as much as $1 per two-foot square. Depending on the size of your lawn, this can be a costly job even before adding the cost of additional supplies, such as soil, fertilizer and tilling equipment. Many homeowners who install sod want to ensure their investment lasts. Here are the main ways to care for and protect sod until it is fully established.

n Once the sod has been laid down, the lawn should be thoroughly soaked with water. Most experts recommend soaking it to a depth of 6 inches. n It is important to establish a watering schedule to keep the sod moist. Water the sod to a depth of one inch every other day for the first three weeks to enable the roots to securely establish themselves in the soil. n Water the sod every other day unless the weather has been very warm. After four weeks you can generally go up to five days without watering as long as you transition slowly. The sod will change colors if it is not getting enough water. Never let the lawn turn yellow, otherwise you may have to cut out dead spots and re-sod. n Wait two to four weeks before mowing the sod. Keep the lawn height to around two inches to ensure that it won't scald in the sun. Using sod to establish a lush lawn is a fast, albeit more expensive option to sowing seeds. After a few weeks the lawn will be thick and secure.
