Town hall addresses lack of post-flood road access By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Calhoun News-Herald It’s no secret that the historic 2019 flood has had a devastating impact on Calhoun.

AUGUST 14, 2019

As things start returning to normal, with the Joe Page bridge expected to open up soon, a need for an alternative option in case of another major weather event is a concern for many residents of the

community, a concern several addressed in a recent town hall meeting. “Something is going to have to give,� Access Calhoun organizer Pam Long said. “We need better options.� Access Calhoun is a group in the community frustrated with the lack of access into the county following flood events, which are common occurrences for a county bounded by two rivers. Forty members of the community gathered at St. Anslem Parish Hall in Kampsville on Aug. 6 with guests U.S Congressman Rodney Davis, local state Senator Steve McClure, local state Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer, and a secretary from U.S Senator Tammy Duckworth. The public meeting was

The department is now working in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services which had had 11 confirmed and seven suspected cases of severe pulmonary disease among adolescents who have been known to vape. Vaping has been a popular avenue for people of all ages to help stop cigarette smoking while still satiating their addiction to nicotine. However, with the rising promotion of Juuls and other e-cigarette devices, teens are gravitating towards that first instead of choosing other forms. While smokeless tobacco on the outside may seem a safer albeit still potentially harmful option, it poses several dangers, according to IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike. “While short- and long-term effects of vaping are still being researched, these recent hospitalizations heighten the need for parents to talk with their teens about vaping and for both to understand the consequences and potential dangers of vaping,� Ezike said.

Local tourism on the rise again By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Calhoun News-Herald With the aftermath of the flood subsiding, tourism continues to rise across the tri-county area mirroring growth across the state, according to early reports from the Illinois Department of Commerce’s Office of Tourism. In 2018, visitors to the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau region which includes Calhoun, Jersey, Greene, Madison, Macoupin and Montgomery counties, spent $695.5 million, an increase of $28.72 million over 2017 which marks a 4.3 percent total increase of revenue. The region received local tax receipts of $18.64 million from visitor spending in 2018 compared to $18.12 million in 2017, marking a 2.9 percent overall revenue increase. Additionally, job growth in the Great Rivers and Routes region has climbed slightly with a total of 5,050 full-time jobs in the tourism sectors. “These numbers are encouraging and show how vital tourism is to the local economy,� said Brett Stawar, president and CEO of the Great Rivers and Routes Tourism Bureau. “Our tourism sector is key to the continued economic growth of our region. The growth also shows the razor sharp focus of the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau & how what we do helps drive in new visitors.�

Those dog kisses bring more than affection r e n n u R e Ridg

By BILL HOAGLAND As a dog owner, my family and I have had our share of “dog kisses” over the years. It is pleasing to have an affectionate dog and one way they show affection is to lick you; it is something they learned as puppies. As far as I know, our family has avoided any diseases as a result of those “dog kisses”. Like many others, I remember being told as a child that a dog’s mouth is actually cleaner than a human’s mouth; as a result, I never really thought much about the potential for any serious condition to result from being exposed to a dog’s saliva. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth; a dog’s mouth is filthy. Two recent cases involving humans contracting a debilitating disease as a result of a “dog kiss” have received a lot of publicity so perhaps it would be helpful to review the situation briefly. First of all, it is estimated that most dogs have over 700 types of bacteria in their mouths, not counting what was in that horse ca-ca they chowed down on this morning. Some of these bacteria can be transmitted to humans and can result in a human illness.

Two of the better known and most harmful bacteria in a dog’s mouth are salmonella and E-coli, two types of bacteria that could make anyone sick. But the bacteria spread from dog saliva to humans that has been receiving attention recently is capnocytophaga; if transmitted from dog to human, this bacteria can ultimately lead to a sepsis infection and that is serious stuff. This transmission occurs most often if you are bitten by a dog or if you permit a dog to lick an open wound, but it can also occur if the dog licks you in the mouth. Within the past month, Marie Trainer, a woman in Ohio, developed what was ultimately diagnosed as “capnocytophaga canimorsus”; all indications are that it resulted because she allowed her dog to lick an open sore on her body. She eventually developed a sepsis infection and despite intensive treatment with antibiotics, she ultimately had to be put into an induced coma for 10 days. When she awoke, she discovered that both legs and both arms had been amputated to save her life. A similar situation occurred in 2018 regarding Greg Manteufel, a man in Wisconsin. He


also had significant direct contact with one or more dogs and also contracted “capnocytophaga canimorsus”, resulting in a sepsis infection and ultimately amputation of his hands and legs. He has had at least eight surgeries and may still need to have portions of his nose amputated. If you need further proof on how serious this can be, google those two names and see for yourself what can happen. It ain’t pretty. It is estimated that 70 percent of all dogs have the capnocytophaga bacteria in their saliva. Most humans, when exposed to the capnocytophaga bacteria via a “dog kiss”, have no ill effects. But if the saliva gets into the blood, such as will occur with a dog bite or allowing the dog to lick an open wound, or if certain types of persons are exposed to dog saliva via a “dog kiss”, such as babies, elderly people or people with weakened

immune systems, the risk is much greater. We all love our dogs and enjoy the affection, but just remember to use some common sense when it comes to “dog kisses.” Note, this column is about bacteria in a dog’s mouth. We did not even touch on the parasites that dogs can share with humans: giardiasis, hookworms and tapeworms, for example. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Bill Hoagland has practiced law in Alton for more than 50 years, but he has spent more than 70 years hunting, fishing and generally being in the great outdoors.

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Results don’t define stories, journeys do This last year has been one of the busiest and most stressful I have had in a long time. It was one of those years where my hunting was minimal. I’m actually embarrassed to tell you how many times I turkey hunted. Pitiful. This year, I’m looking forward to a more active deer season. I think I’ll have more opportunities to go. Those hours in the tree stand are terribly therapeutic. In order to be successful, they force me to be patient, quiet, and even reflective. On one property I hunt, I’ve already spotted a couple of nice bucks. My ability to be inactive will determine success. If I’m able to harvest one of these deer, the characteristic of that hunt will be patience and not settling for a lessor trophy. The risk, because in

situations like this there’s always a risk, will be ending the season empty-handed. It’s a result I am familiar with. When trophy hunting, one has to decide that the journey will be the success. Not a meaningless journey, but one that will be filled with new information that could possibly lead to a buck of a lifetime. Nevertheless, the journey will be what the story is all about. It will be the plot and theme. If I’m able to take one of these bucks, it will only be a necessary ending. Because all stories must have an end. Your story is not the end. The end is just necessary. The end may or may not be what you thought it would be. In fact, the end will most likely be something you never expected. And it may or may not be long. It will most likely be only a

short pause in what is really your story. Your story, instead, will be made up of small, seemingly insignificant, moments. It will be made up of activities and not titles. While there may be some great accomplishment that outsiders will know you for; the most important ones in your life will see your story as something so much different. They will tell it to others not by saying “She did” but by saying “She was.” They will tell about you, describing your spirit, not your accomplishments. While you may get the trophy you are after, the story will include things like patience, compassion, determination, and love. And these will be what others will use to describe you. Once again, however, there is risk in trophy hunting. It’s

that you might c o m e h o m e emptyhanded, but only emptyhanded concerning the end. So, go ahead and reach for something rare. But don’t think, if by chance you can’t grab it, your story will be less. It won’t be. In fact, it won’t be any different. Only the end will be. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years.

Access (Continued from A1) sparked by a flood access road petition that was started up by Long and her brother, Danny Bazillion. The petition, which was posted on Facebook and the Go Petition website, has been distributed in paper form throughout many businesses in the county. On the day of the town hall, there were approximately 1,500 signatures. The focal point of the discussion was a preliminary meeting to brainstorm ideas on possible ways to ensure that the county will not be cut off again in case a similar event were to strike in the future. This year’s flooding was a major problem for many residents, with many boating to work and to get supplies or making the four-hour trek to Jerseyville through Pike County. Long presented to the public seven options that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) had proposed after the ’93 flood that were abandoned shortly after they were introduced. Those seven options to improve access to the county were: QProviding a new bridge over the Illinois River near the Brussels Ferry site west of Grafton Q Raise the approaches and landings to the Brussels Ferry to an elevation of 443’ Q Raise the 12.4-mile Nutwood Levee in Greene and Jersey counties to an elevation of 443’ Q Raise the Illinois Route 16/100 roadway and the approach to the Joe Page Bridge to an elevation of 443’ Q Provide a new bridge over the Illinois River, approximately four miles south of Hardin, replacing the Joe Page Bridge Q Raising the Nutwood Levee above the ’93 flood mark or leaving the levee as is and raising the roadway to 443’

Q Provide improved access to the Golden Eagle Ferry by constructing a new approach roadway on the Missouri side, maintaining ferry operation during flood conditions. All of these options are very costly, though, with the most inexpensive being $17 million to raise the Nutwood Levy and the most expensive being building a new bridge at a rough estimate of $68 million, but Congressman Davis stated that a plan would need to be in place for him to present the agreed-upon option to the powers-that-be. He reiterated that once an option was decided on and the cost was obtained from IDOT, he would be able to help pursue the matter further. “You have to tell us what you want,” Davis said. “We can be that unified voice.” Another issue that was also discussed was the inability to use ferry improvement funds, a concern raised by Kyle Godar and has been discussed in prior Calhoun County Commissioners meetings. Currently, the county is unable to use the few hundred thousand dollars in federal grant funding because of the strict guidelines that are in place for the expenditure of those funds. Davis was extremely concerned that the money is not being used and instead is going back to where it came from. He plans on making that a priority by making sure those funds can be used to make necessary improvements near the Golden Eagle Ferry. “We have to fix that policy,” Davis said. “You don’t just throw (funding) back.” Another meeting will be held in the future. The expectation is to have representatives from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Federal Emergency

Vaping (Continued from A1) percent of adults used e-cigarettes, while an alarming 13.2 percent of Illinois high school students used electronic vapor products at least one day in the past 30 days, which is also the national average. “Vaping among teens has increased significantly, because the flavors, high tech-look and ability to discreetly use nicotine is so appealing,” Calhoun County Nursing Director Sandy Teichmann said. This year, the American Association of Poison Control Centers have managed 2,439 exposure cases about e-cigarette devices and liquid nicotine. Vaping has sparked a new generation of tobacco users that otherwise wouldn’t have existed. In 2015 alone, the U.S Surgeon General reported that e-cigarette use among high school students had increased by 900 percent, and 40 percent of young e-cigarette users had never smoked regular tobacco. “Vape pod companies know that most teens prefer to hide the fact that they’re using tobacco products, so they advertise their products using the words like ‘discreet’

and ‘healthy,’” Teichmann said. Some symptoms linked to e-cigarette usage include coughing, shortness of breath and fatigue. One unconfirmed potential disease that can develop is “popcorn lung” which is the nickname for bronchiolitis. It is a condition that damages a person’s lungs’ smallest airways and makes one cough and feel short of breath. It is sometimes caused by breathing in a chemical used to flavor microwave popcorn, which is speculated to be included in some e-vapor liquids. “Vaping among the young is a nationwide problem, and certainly something we need to keep an eye on in Calhoun,” Teichmann said.

Parents encouraged to include emergency preparedness in back-to-school plans Students from kindergarten through college soon will head back to school. As families prepare for the new academic year, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and local emergency management agencies are encouraging parents to include emergency preparedness in their backto-school plans. “Emergencies can occur any time of the day or night, including when children are in school,� said Acting IEMA Director Alicia Tate-Nadeau in a state news release. “The start of a new school year is the perfect time to make sure you know your school’s plans for keeping students safe during an emergency and then talking to your child about those plans.� Here are some tips for parents to consider: Q Find out where children will be taken in the event of an evacuation during school hours. Q Ensure your current emergency contact information is on file at your child’s school. Q Pre-authorize a friend or relative to pick up your children in an emergency and make sure the school knows

who that designated person is. Q Teach children with cell phones about ‘Text First, Talk Later.’ Short, simple text messages, such as “R U OK?� and “I’m OK,� are more likely to get through than a phone call if phone service is unavailable immediately following an emergency. As phone congestion eases, you can follow up with a phone call to relay more information. New this academic school year, state law requires schools to hold a minimum of three evacuations drills while students are present to better prepare students and personnel for emergencies. Specifically, within the first 90-days of the school year, schools must conduct at least one law enforcement evacuation drill. These drills must be conducted according to the school’s emergency and crisis response plans, protocols, and procedures. Students headed off to college also need to be prepared for emergencies. While doing back to school shopping, consider picking up the essential items for an emergency preparedness kit. Every home, dorm and apartment should have the supplies needed to

Thursday, Aug. 22: Meatloaf, baked potatoes, Brussels sprouts and chocolate pudding. Friday, Aug. 23: Baked tilapia, rice pilaf, roasted carrots and onions and mixed fruit cup. Stop Scammers Now: Unfortunately, older adults continue to be the target of scammers. Here are a couple of tips to help protect you from being scammed. No. 1, hang up on government impostors. It usually starts with a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, or Social Security, or Medicare. Maybe the telephone number even matches the toll-free number for these agencies. The caller tells you that your account is locked, or they say you need to provide some information to get a refund or service, like your Social Security benefits reinstated. They might also say that you face possible arrest for unpaid taxes. The best way to avoid these scams is to not accept calls from unknown sources. Also, don’t call back numbers you don’t recognize if they have not left a message. If you do accept one of these calls, hang up immediately if you suspect it is a scam. A big red flag is if the caller requests payment via gift card or wire transfer or threatens arrest for non-payment. Be sure to report the call to your local law enforcement.

No. 2, don’t accept offers of “free� medical equipment or tests. Medicare covers a range of preventive services and durable medical equipment (DME) at no/low cost to beneficiaries. But, it’s important to remember that there are rules for receiving these services, and you should only accept them from trusted providers. The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department for Health & Human Services reports that advertisement of free orthotics continues to be a popular scam targeting people with Medicare. Fraudsters may call you directly to offer a neck or back brace, send a postcard to your address with a tollfree number to call and place an order or advertise on television or radio to encourage you to order Medicarecovered braces by calling the phone number provided. Scammers are also exploiting worries about dementia, cardiovascular disease, and cancer to offer Medicare-covered genetic testing. In both scenarios, the scammers obtain your personal information and Medicare number, which can be used to steal your identity and bill Medicare for thousands of dollars. No. 3, be sure to always check your Medicare Summary Notice to make sure that your account is being charged only for items and services you have received from your healthcare providers (including durable medical equipment). Finally, resist the temptation to “teach scammers a lesson� by continuing to engage them in conversation. Just hang up.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.� Matthew 5:3 NIV


he Gospel of Luke’s version of the Beatitudes says that “Blessed are the poor,� (Luke 6:20), whereas Matthew’s version says “Blessed are the poor in spirit.� (Matthew 5:3) What this means is something that we should ponder. A person can be literally poor, i.e., have no money or material possessions, and yet be “rich and haughty in spirit.� On the other hand, it is possible to have lots of money and other material things and to be poor in spirit. Being poor in spirit entails that we should be humble and meek, and not arrogant and proud, as great wealth, or pretensions to wealth, can make us. Perhaps Luke’s formulation (blessed are the poor), is simply meant to illustrate that material poverty is the visible manifestation of being poor in spirit. Those who are materially poor realize that they are completely dependent on God for everything, from the food that sustains them to the clothes on their back and the roof over their heads. In reality, this is the

existential condition of all of us, but those who trust in their wealth and their ability to take care of themselves don’t realize how dependent they are on God. Being poor in spirit goes hand in hand with the wisdom of trusting in God: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.� (Proverbs 3:5 NIV) Finally, we should take note that this is the first of the beatitudes, and it comes with an implicit promise. –Christopher Simon

Thursday night concluded with a fun night, consisting of hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy and snowcones. Finishing up the evening with water balloons and lots of water games. Stephen and Britney Hayn headed this up. They did an absolutely wonderful job and Pastor Jacobson drove over every evening to help out. It was wonderful to see so many kids and families in town and to see the church so full of life. Channing Johnson competed Saturday at Bedrock Raceway in Belleville in quad racing. He won first place in the 70 production class. Channing is the son of Ed and Amanda Johnson. Fox Creek Cemetery is having a raffle to help with the upkeep of the cemetery.

Our ferry guys this past week have definitely worked hard. Because of a broken part, they were down to one boat. The ferry lines were long and this was unavoidable. I know it can be stressful to have to wait but we are so blessed to have the ferry in operation, and the ones in the lower end of the county also, especially having them up and running as quickly as they did. During ‘93, we had to drive around a lot longer and when the ferry was able to open it was a much longer commute because we had to dock way upriver. Thanks to some hard work from guys on the other side of the river we should have our bridge up and going quickly. So, let’s try to remember to be thankful even when we are stressed. Please continue prayers for Dan Holliman, Sandy Wille, Joe Gress, Kathryn Chapman, Jim Hill, Cindy (Sprong) Smith, Gus Wallendorf, Luann Baalman and Eileen Gardner.

The Brussels Picnic was a good success. The food, games, music, and country store were terrific. It was nice to visit with family and friends in an outdoor setting.

Busy weekend in Brussels with St. Mary’s Church Picnic on Saturday evening and all day Sunday. Enjoyed visiting with many out-oftowners and the food on Saturday night and the dinner on Sunday was delicious as always. Recent visitor and lunch guest of Carole Klunk was her granddaughter Hannah Wade. Hannah also brought a delicious chocolate pie she made for dessert. The descendants of the late Sandy and Alma Jones enjoyed a family reunion on Saturday at Meppen Church Hall. A large group of relatives attended from as far away as Seattle, Washington, Glendale, Arizona and Rochester, Minn. The day the reunion was held would have been the 90th wedding anniversary of their parents. Sounds like they had an enjoyable time together and so much delicious food to partake of. My company on Monday was Caleb Carnes of Edwardsville. He accompanied me to Hardin where we enjoyed lunch at Subway, then did our shopping and other stops and last of all stopped by the Hardin Drive-In for a delicious cone of soft-serve ice cream. Afterward, he returned to Grandpa Francis and Grandma Liz Toppmeyer. On Tuesday, he went with them to Alton and then returned home. Enjoyed your visit, Caleb. Next time, you will have to stay longer. My visitors and luncheon guests on Wednesday was Dennis and Shelly Scherer of O’Fallon, Mo., Noah and Adelaide Keppler of Wentzville and Sam Holdinghausen of Festus, Mo. Enjoyed their company very much. The children also enjoyed the playground at the Brussels Heritage Park while here. Angie Imming of Jerseyville, Barb Hagen of Brussels and Rita Hoguet of Columbia, Ill., enjoyed lunch recently at Josephine’s Tea Room in Godfrey. These three gals worked together many years ago at Vickers Electric Products Division in St. Louis. Rev. Timothy and Julia Bickel of Michigan and

their family from various states spent the weekend at Pere Marquette Lodge. On Sunday, the group of 29 attended church services at St. Matthew Church. Rev. Bickel was a Pastor here in the 1960s. A reception was held for them after service in the church hall where everyone had a chance to visit with him and Julia and their family. It was also their 50th wedding anniversary along with his recent retirement from the ministry. Two beautifully decorated cakes were served along with many other desserts, coffee and tea. Many more Happy Anniversary’s to them. John Carnes spent the weekend with me and accomplished the weekly mowing and trim work, also installed motion detector lights for me and many other jobs on my list. On Saturday night, we attended St. Mary’s Picnic and met up with Julie Carnes and Caleb, and Lydia Carnes and friend Mitch. It was also Julie’s birthday that day. Others of my family in attendance were Trevor and Cyndi Axford and Madison of Chesterfield, Mo., along with her friend David Morrow of Chicago. Julie Carnes and Caleb spent the weekend with Francis and Liz Toppmeyer. Jim and Carol Jones of Glendale, Ariz., and two of their daughters, one from Minnesota and the other from Washington and their families, joined Tom and Pennie Pohlman on Saturday for a day at Holiday Shores as guests of Shawn and Kenneathia. Also present was Ronnie and Donna Kinder of Edwardsville. They all enjoyed lots of good food, along with swimming, water skiing and other water sports. Ronnie, Carol and Pennie are brother and sisters. Deepest sympathy to the family of Jerry Wade of Wood River who passed away on August 5 at the Calhoun Nursing and Rehab facility in Hardin. Jerry and his wife Veronica were former residents of Brussels, living in the Deer Plain area for many years. His visitation and service were held on Aug. 7 at Marks Mortuary. Thoughts and prayers

are with his wife Veronica, three sons Jerome (Debbie), William (Donna and Greg (Stacy) Wade and their families. Deepest sympathy to the family of Norbert Godar of Hardin who passed away on July 27. Visitation at Gress, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home and funeral on August 1 at St. Norbert’s Church. Thoughts and prayers are with his wife Mary Ann and their 4 children; Helen (Roy) Sievers, Anthony (Barbara) Godar, Judy Godar and Phil (Julie) Godar and their families. Also 5 siblings Delores Fuhler, Francis Godar, Marilyn Fuhler, Larry and Roger Godar and their families. Deepest sympathy to the family of Rose Ann “Rosie� Jones of St. Peters, Mo., who passed away on July 30. Visitation and memorial service on Sunday, Aug. 4 at Baue Funeral Home in St. Charles. According to her wishes, her body will be cremated. Thoughts and prayers to her husband Mike Jones, her stepdaughter Dawn and stepson Dean and her and Mike’s daughter Kelly. Mike’s sister Virginia Murphy and other family members from this area attended. After the Memorial Service lunch was served at the American Legion Hall in St. Charles. Birthday blessings this week to my daughter Shelly Scherer (Aug. 13) grandson Caleb Carnes (Aug 14) and granddaughter Madison Axford (Aug. 16).

Hardin, Illinois

What’s Happening

25 Years Ago August 17, 1994 Jeff Foiles of Hardin killed an uninvited visitor near his garage on Sunday. A 3’6� copperhead snake was wrapped around the wheel of a trailer parked in his driveway. The U.S. House of Representatives gave final approval on August 10 to a bill which provides $300,000 for a reconnaissance study to improve flood protection for the Sny Levee and Drainage District and $250,000 for a study of the Nutwood Levee District. This funding is the first step in the Sny Levee and Drainage district’s plan to raise the levee to the 500 year flood protection level and the Nutwood Levee District’s plans to raise the levee to the 100 year flood level. These levees were originally built to provide protection to about the 50 year level. 50 Years Ago August 14, 1969 Mrs. Alma Jones of Golden Eagle writes and sends the sub for her son, Fred, who is a Sp.4 with the Army

Engineers in Vietnam, and says he enjoys reading the news. Fred has been fortunate to meet three of his friends from home over in Vietnam. He is based at Lang Bein. He will be home the first part of 1970. Corky, the clown, well known television personality will be a major headliner at the 1969 Apple Festival in Hardin. He will be featured in “Corky’s Mini-Circus� at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday Sept. 14. He will remain after the show to visit with children and give them free autographed pictures of himself. 75 Years Ago August 17, 1944 Ellis Inman, of the West Point Ferry, is this year reaping the reward from a peach orchard he planted four years ago. His trees are large for their age and are producing some fine fruit. Mr. Inman is wrecking, for their lumber, two large barges which he landed on high ground during last spring’s flood. These barges were built from Northwestern fir and contain some excellent heavy lumber suitable for bridges and

other heavy construction. The new building being constructed between the News office and the Corno Feed Store by William Surgeon, Jr. is fast taking shape. Bill reports that a cleaning and pressing shop, operated by a Kenneth Parker, who formerly ran a tailoring shop in Hardin, and an electrical repair shop will occupy the building when it is completed. 100 Years Ago August 14, 1919 Leroy Good, who helped stop the big German drive that meant so much toward bringing the world’s war to a successful finish is on his way home to Calhoun county. Mr. Good is the lad who furnished the News readers with so much interesting information from the battle front. Joe Gotway, the champion apple barrel maker of Calhoun county, who has been in Alton and St. Louis the past few years, returned to Hardin last Thursday morning and will make barrels this season in the Chas. Godar cooperage plant of this place.

Republican lawmaker calling to introduce death penalty bill By REBECCA ANZEL Capitol News Illinois A Republican state lawmaker is calling for the resurrection of the death penalty in Illinois after two mass shootings in the U.S. and recent gun violence in Chicago. Barrington Hills Rep. David McSweeney said he will either sponsor or cosponsor some version of a measure overturning the abolishment former Gov. Pat Quinn placed on capital punishment eight years ago. Former Gov. George Ryan had placed a moratorium on the death penalty in 2000. At the time, Quinn said Illinois should not have a system in place that might result in the erroneous execution of citizens. McSweeney said “eliminating the death penalty was a terrible mistake.� “It has been a complete failure,� he said. Mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, on Aug. 3-4 killed 31 people. In Chicago last weekend, four people were killed and 43 injured in gunrelated violence, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “Texas officials are pursuing the death penalty against the coward racist who targeted Mexican Americans in El Paso. We should have that tool in the state of Illinois,� McSweeney said. “The time to act is now, because the death penalty is a deterrent that we need to protect our citizens. No one can argue the state of Illinois is a model for how to fight crime.� In part, Quinn’s argument for signing legislation making Illinois the 16th state to abolish capital punishment was the lack of advancement

in DNA testing, McSweeney said. But DNA technology has progressed “light years� beyond its stage in 2011, he added, to be the “key to ensuring there are no wrongful convictions.� “I want to make sure there are safeguards,� he said. According to a Pew Research Center study published last year, 54 percent of Americans support capital punishment for those convicted of murder. That number is up from 49 percent two years prior. Thirty-nine percent of people oppose the death penalty. McSweeney is not the only Illinois politician to express support for capital punishment. In an unexpected move last year, former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner proposed reviving the death penalty by using his amendatory veto power on a firearms measure that needed his signature to become law. The legislation would have extended the 72-hour waiting period for gun purchases to include assault weapons. Rauner wrote in his veto message that the proposal did not go far enough to prevent gun violence incidents and other public safety concerns. His addition would have created a new category of crime — a “death penalty murder� — that encompassed anyone 18 or older who killed two or more people “without lawful justification� or if the victim is a police officer. “The ultimate public safety objectives of this bill would be better served with comprehensive solutions,� he wrote, which included a ban on bump stocks, the addition of mental health and

law enforcement personnel in schools, and “reintroducing the death penalty for the most egregious cases.� The General Assembly did not vote on Rauner’s proposal, effectively running out the clock on the bill. Before Rauner’s push last year, Illinois’ staunchest supporter of the death penalty in state politics arguably was former Republican Rep. John Cavaletto, from Salem. Cavaletto’s last iteration of a measure to reinstate the death penalty would have applied to persons older than 18 who were convicted of first-degree murder for killing a police officer, firefighter, employee of a correctional agency, or a child; or for killing more than one person. Cavaletto’s legislation never moved out of committee, and McSweeney said he knows he faces an uphill battle with the Democratically-controlled General Assembly. “This one will have a lot of opposition. I don’t think it’s going to happen in the short run, but it’s an issue I will continue to focus on — through public education and through pointing out and proving the advances in DNA technology,� he said. “I believe it’s the right thing to do.� U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat, filed legislation to strike the use of capital punishment by the federal government. The move came after President Donald Trump’s administration announced last month it would resume the use of the death penalty for the first time in 16 years. “Try as we might, we cannot escape the fact that the death penalty in America is disproportionately imposed

on minorities and poor people,� Durbin said in a news release. But McSweeney said a capital punishment measure is worth having a discussion about in a committee hearing. “There needs to be a coordinated effort between state officials and the federal government to once and for all end this problem of violence in the city and in our state,� he said. “We need to get tough on crime again in this state and defend our citizens.�

good GROWING Keeping you growing with good ideas sUniversity of Illinois Extension

Fall can also be time for planting Planting a vegetable garden doesn’t just have to occur in the spring. Many of the vegetables that we grow in the spring can be also planted in late summer or early fall. By the time summer rolls around many of our cool season plants that were planted in the spring are past their prime. They become tough and bitter and will often bolt (flower). By planting these cool season crops again you can extend your gardening season and have fresh produce throughout the fall. There are several other advantages to planting a fall vegetable garden. There are often fewer pest and weed problems in the fall compared to the spring. Many vegetables have better quality when they are grown in the fall. Additionally, some vegetables will also develop better flavor when grown in the fall, particularly after they have gone through a frost. Finally, fall gardens often require less time and labor because the soil has already been worked in the spring. Vegetables that are typically grown in a fall vegetable garden fall into the semi-hardy and hardy categories. Semi-hardy plants such as beets, carrots, cauliflower, and lettuce can tolerate light frosts (32°F). Hardy plants such as broccoli, cabbage, radishes, and spinach can tolerate hard frosts (28°F). To determine when you should plant your vegetables you need to determine when your first frost usually occurs. For central Illinois, it is generally mid-October. Start with that date and count backwards for the number of days it takes the crop to mature. It’s also a good idea to add a week or two for the fall factor because temperatures are getting cooler so development slows compared to spring when temperatures get warmer. Most of the vegetables you grow in the fall veg-

etable garden can be directly seeded in the garden. Some like broccoli and cauliflower are best done as transplants. Unfortunately, transplants are not easy to find in the summer for these plants, so to make your own start the seed indoors 6 to 8 weeks before you wish to put them in the garden (it’s a little too late this year, but as they say there’s always next year‌). Planting your fall garden really isn’t much different than starting your garden in the spring. Remove any crop residues from previous crops and pull any weeds that may be present. Soil can also be tilled and one to one and a half pounds of an all-purpose fertilizer (per 100 sq ft) or composted organic matter can be incorporated. When planting seeds, follow the directions on the seed packets. Make sure to keep the soil moist until the seeds have germinated. Because the seeds are being planted at the end of summer, the soil moisture will need to be monitored closely. It is also helpful to provide some shade to seedlings in the afternoon while the temperatures are still high and the plants have yet to become well established. Once your plants have become established the maintenance is just like any other garden, make sure to control weeds and pests if necessary and water when needed. Finally, sit back and enjoy the fruits (or vegetables) of your labor. Good Growing Tip of the Week: A light covering of mulch or even a board can be placed over the seeds to help retain moisture in the soil. If using a board make sure check under it frequently for sprouting seed and remove it once the seeds germinate. Checking the seed packet will give you an idea of how many days it will take for the seeds to germinate.

Illinois State Police (ISP) officials announce the results of the statewide Illinois Speed Awareness Day campaign, which took place on Wednesday, July 24. Gov. J.B. Pritzker proclaimed July 24, 2019, as Illinois Speed Awareness Day with the goal of encouraging the public to recognize the importance of speed awareness and driving safely. The ISP took a proactive approach to promote safety for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists through enforcement and education. ISP officers conducted nine presentations throughout the state to educate the public on the dangers of speeding and the importance of obeying the posted speed limit. During the 24-hour reporting period, Troopers issued 876 speed-related traffic citations and 681 speed-related written
