Multiple arrests made following month-long narcotics investigation By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Multiple arrests have been made following an extensive narcotic investigation by the White Hall Police Department with help from the Roodhouse Police Department and the Greene County Sheriff’s Department. “As is the case in many areas, our community has been plagued by the effects of drug and narcotic use and distribution,� White Hall Police Chief Luke Coultas said. “One of the primary focuses of the White Hall Police Department is to stem the flow of drugs and narcotics to the best of its ability – however, we

“As is the case in many areas, our community has been plagued by the effects of drug and narcotic use and distribution.�

Luke Coultas White Hall Police Chief can only get so far on our own. Police departments rely heavily on assistance from the public.� This investigation spanned several months and resulted in several arrests for Unlawful Delivery of Controlled

Substances including synthetic cannabis (K2) and methamphetamine. The investigation ended with multiple felony charges being filed in Greene County Circuit Court. Greene County States Attorney Caleb

Briscoe filed the following charges on Sept. 7: Robert I. Castleberry, White Hall, Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver after synthetic cannabis was found at his home at the time of his arrest.

Boyd Gala to feature dueling pianos By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

he annual Boyd Hospital Wine Gala will take place on Oct. 20 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, and will feature dueling pianos, something that has become very popular in the larger metropolitan areas, but is still new to this area. Fundraiser Chairman Lisa Meisenheimer got the idea from a fundraiser she attended last year. “It was a fundraiser, kind of like the ones they have for Jonny Wade,� Meisenheimer. “My sister-in-law knew this woman who had lost her child to cancer, and at this event they had the dueling pianos and it was a huge hit.� The two pianists will take song suggestions throughout the night. Meisenheimer said people fill out a song sheet with the title of a song they want to hear and put money along with the song suggestion. “For example, if you put a $20 bill with the song sheet, they are more than likely going to play your song,� she said. “But if you only put a $5 bill with it, more than likely they are going to shoot it to the side. It’s really fun because they might cut a song off right in the middle if someone lays down $50. They keep it moving and donate all the tips back to the organization sponsoring the event.� This will be the 11th year for the Boyd Hospital Foundation Gala, and in the past, the funds raised have been used for a variety of programs within the hospital, such as the gas card program for cancer patients. “This year, we are collecting money to allow the hospital to purchase a new 3D mammography machine,� Meisenheimer said. “Because this machine costs around $200,000, all of the money raised from this event will go towards this machine. We are hoping this goes over really big, and we can get the money we need to purchase it soon.� Doors open at 6 p.m. and social hour will last until 7 p.m. “There will be appetizers from various businesses in Greene County along with wine and beer from various (See, BOYD, A2)

Crime Stoppers fundraiser something to moo about By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Two Rivers Crime Stoppers will hold a fundraising event on Oct. 20 in Jerseyville that is sure to entertain and hopefully bring in a lot of money. Cow Ploppers for Crime Stoppers will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Jerseyville Fairgrounds and is quite the unique fundraiser. The event will encourage guests to purchase

parcels of land in the hopes that the cow will “plop� on their square. According to Two Rivers Crime Stoppers Secretary Brenda Schulte, the idea for the event came from their treasurer, Valerie Ringhausen. “They have done it before in Jerseyville for the Panthers, and it turned out really well, so we decided we were going to give it a try,� Schulte said. “It actually went from talking about a golf ball drop to a cow plop.� (See, CRIME STOPPERS, A2)

Carrollton Library receives $5,000 grant By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Carrollton Public Library’s children’s section will be getting a makeover after receiving a $5,000 grant from DOT Food’s Tracy Foundation. “This grant was received through the Tracy Foundation to support their Birth to 5 Initiative,� Carrollton Librarian Angie Custer said. “They, and we, feel it is really important to encourage children and families to read together during these formative years.� DOT Foods, through the Tracy Foundation, supports a variety of charitable causes, including many local libraries. Earlier this year, the Winchester Public Library, which is a Carnegie Library like Carrollton, received a $5,000 grant to also redo its children’s area. (See, LIBRARY, A2)

North Greene School ESSA meeting receives zero attendance

Ready to rumble Grant Pohlman, center, flanked on the left by Cole Carpenter and Gus Coonrod, on the right, flexes his muscles Friday afternoon while riding on the Carrollton Hawk wagon during the Carrollton Homecoming Parade.

By ZACHARY DAUM Greene Prairie Press North Greene Superintendent Mark Scott has a lot to say about the use of federal money provided to North Greene, but has no one to listen. Of the over 1,000 invitations sent, only School Board President Stacy Schutz and Scott himself were in attendance at the North Greene ESSA meeting. In 2015, the No Child Left Behind Act was replaced with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This was done, in part, as a way to loosen up regulations for both schools and the states. It requires that each year, every school district hold a Title 1 meeting for parents, informing them of how Title 1 federal money is used. Title 1 schools are given extra support by the government if the community is at or above a 40 percent poverty rate. These meetings are also supposed to allow parents to discuss what they would like to see Title 1 money used for. (See, NORTH GREENE, A2)

Clearing the fog I started the morning sitting in a tree stand. A few weeks ago, I had trimmed limbs and opened up some shooting lanes for this new stand placement. I think it is going to be a good one. The cool morning was expected, as well as the lingering fog that hovers over the hills, sometimes through the late morning. That was the case on this particular day. As I peered toward the sky just before dawn, I wondered if what I was looking at was clouds instead of the fog. But after a few more minutes I recognized the familiar look and feel of this hazy mist. It wasn’t long until I could see the sun began to peek over the mountains just in front of me. It would have its work

cut out for it today as it began to slowly burn away the veil that was hiding everything from my view. I was actually surprised how quickly the fog began to surrender to the sun, and it was not too many minutes later until it was all gone and everything around me became crystal clear. The lines between the objects that were blurred just a few minutes earlier were now distinct, prominent, and flawless. As I watched this transformation, I was reminded of a quote from C.S. Lewis. I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else,” he said. For him, Christianity gave perspective to the things in

his world. It shone a light of understanding on otherwise confusing circumstances. By coming to know his God he could appreciate his world. By contrast, however, he was saying that without a proper view of God, life is only one random and undirected action after another. Or as Shakespeare’s Macbeth put it, “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” There is no doubt, life is full of head-scratching moments. Some are fleeting; others shake our very foundation and leave us changed forever. The lens we view these through will either bring a sense of clarity or a deeper sense of confusion and despair. I am not saying my faith

makes me perfectly unders t a n d everything, but it does g i v e s me the same picture as the sun; that no matter what may seem unclear and indistinguishable, it will burn away the longer I am in His presence.

Crime Stoppers (Continued from A1) Similar to bingo, there will be 500 ticket squares sold at a cost of $10 each and one can purchase as many squares as they like. Three cows will be utilized for the event and the first cow to “plop” on a square, will decide the winner of $500. The second and third cows will pay out $250 and $100, respectively. In addition, there will be a 50/50 raffle, gun raffle, food sales of nachos, pulled pork sandwiches, chili, hot dogs and brats, plus water and soda. “This is a family friendly event, so there will be stuff for the kids to do,” Schulte said. “There will be face painting for the kids and we are trying to get some other games possibly set up for the kids to do, but that is going to depend on how many people are able to help us in this fundraiser.” Entertainment will feature Devin Clemons and Brett Moffitt from noon until 2 p.m. and Isiah Christian from 2 to 3 p.m. “We are hoping to get a lot of people out there to help support us, because this is a good organization,” Schulte said. “It is working and we are cleaning the streets up. We are doing our part, so we want to keep it going — we will do whatever it takes to keep it going.”

Another way of raising funds is through the sale of T-shirts, featuring cows dressed as criminals and prisoners holding signs asking people to “Join the Moovement.” This idea was the brainchild of Schulte’s sister, Michelle Ford, who is also a board member. “She was looking at a senior T-shirt which had all the names of the kids on the back and came up with the idea of selling sponsorships to both businesses and individuals, which would get their name on the back of the shirt,” Schulte said. “For $100, you could buy a sponsorship package, and it worked out really well. We have over 30 sponsors so far.” Two Rivers Crime Stoppers is a notfor-profit group of volunteers that was organized last year to help the police in Greene, Jersey and Calhoun counties. There is a dedicated anonymous phone line in the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office for individuals to call in with tips on crimes. The difference between calling Crime Stoppers with a tip and the police is that Crime Stoppers is totally anonymous. They also offer rewards in various amounts, if the tip they are given leads to an arrest. “You would be surprised how many

people know about crimes but they just don’t want to get involved,” Schulte said. “The anonymity and the possibility of a reward gives them an incentive to tell us what they know. We then pass this information onto the appropriate police agency to follow up on.” Schulte said the program has been a big success with more than a 90 percent arrest rate from the tips they have received. Approximately 95 percent of those arrests have been drug related. Crime Stoppers is funded entirely by donations, which are tax deductible. The funds are used to pay for the rewards after an arrest is made. “Callers are given a tip number, and if an arrest is made, then they receive the reward,” Schulte said. “So far this year we have paid out $1,300 with seven more pending payouts.” The organization is also desperately seeking more members to join. “We have it set up for a 15-member board, but right now we only have nine board members,” Schulte said. “Seriously, right now we need help – we need people in Greene and Jersey counties to step up to the plate. If we don’t get some help, our organization is going to fold. We are trying to prevent that from happening, because, as you can see, it is working.”

section, including new books and book shelves, multimedia displays, small furniture designed specifically for younger children, a table, interactive rug or mat and a couple of iPads and programs. “We are really excited about getting the iPads,” Custer said. “We don’t currently have any because we could not afford the security needed to keep them from being stolen.” Custer is also excited about the interactive play mat. “They call them interactive and sensory stimulating play tiles, and they are

supposed to encourage visual processing and sensory stimulation,” Custer said. “They are washable and have been shown to calm and entertain the younger children. It’s like two plastic sheets that has liquid between them and you step on it and it makes foot prints. I was intrigued by it, so I can only imagine how much the kids are going to enjoy it.” Custer said she already has the grant money and has begun making the requested purchases the grant was approved for.

Library (Continued from A1) Carrollton has received money from the foundation in the past, but not recently. “We used to receive money from the Tracey Family Foundation several years ago, but then they changed their requirements and we no longer qualified,” Custer said. “Just recently, I inquired about the grant assistance and they actually sent a consultant out who helped me write for the grant.” The $5,000 is going to allow for the makeover of the entire children’s

North Greene (Continued from A1) “Unfortunately, part of the reason a lot of our parents are not engaged with the school is they did not have good experiences when they were here, and it’s not that they have a fear of the school,” Scott said. “We do not have one parent of a child here. That tells me right there that we have a problem with climate and culture in our district.” Scott said the meeting is meant as a time for public comment. “On my [community] surveys I’ve always asked, ‘When should we have these meetings?’” Scott said. “I sent out an all call, it went out to 1,112 people and I’ve got two people here including myself, and one is the school board president.” On Oct. 31, the school district’s report card will be opened to the public. This will give everyone in the community an idea of how North Greene fits into the ESSA rankings. There are

four tiers of school ranking, with one being the highest, and four being the lowest. Scott stated that currently there is no estimate for where North Greene fits on this tier system, but he has an idea. “I know we are not underperforming or lowest performing. However, if you have 20 or more students performing at or below the level of all students, you will be underperforming,” Scott said. “They didn’t have enough data to make the summative final designation. Right now we have no designations.” The grand total of the Title 1 budget was $426,275. All of this money was to provide faculty members with supplies and pay. One notable addition to North Greene High School utilizing these funds was to purchase and install 11 Promethean boards. The boards will be used to help ease teachers’ provision of education in classrooms. Scott wants parents to know that the

Apple Creek Prairie DAR holds meeting Apple Creek Prairie Chapter, National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, met on Saturday morning, Oct. 6, 2018, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Vestel, east of White Hall. Keith Muntz, father of Mrs. Vestel, spoke about his adventures in World War II. He spoke about various training posts where he was stationed in the United States, as well as what happened to him in the European Theater. He distributed copies of an article about his life as a prisoner of war. Mrs. Mluntz added occasional comments and DAR members asked questions.

Mrs. Vestel served refreshments after a blessing by Mrs. Gene Bryant. Regent Mary Frances Tunison asked for reservations to a District V. meeting on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Jacksonville Country Club. Mrs. Helen Duncan, Conservation chairman, asked for any used mascara wands; they are used to clean birds caught in oil spills. Information given at DAR Days was distributed.

next “5Essential” survey opens on Nov. 15 and that he needs at least 20 percent of all parents to participate to get results back. This survey will provide the school with an idea of how parents feel about what the school is doing, and potentially, how to improve it. “They don’t realize how valuable their feedback is to us as a school to plan and to determine where we need to make improvements,” Scott said. “Just like the same reason they need to come to this meeting, because a big portion of that money you have to allocate is for family and community engagement. We receive over three quarters of a million dollars in Title 4 money in federal grants.” Scott said he will send messages out alerting parents when the survey is available. If they do not have access to a computer or smart device, the school will be opening the computer labs for parents to come in and complete it.

Virginia Goode

Virginia (Jen) Goode, 87, of Greenfield passed away peacefully after a four-year battle with Alzheimer’s Oct. 5, 2018 at Heritage Health in Jacksonville. Jen was born in Greene County in August of 1931, the daughter of the late Wilbur and Nellie (Greene) Cannedy. She married Benjamin (Ben) Goode, Sr. June 17, 1948, in Greenfield. They raised five children on their farm near Wrights, Ill. and she is remembered as a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Jen sold Avon from door to door for many years. She ultimately became a cook at Greenfield Elementary School in 1969 and enjoyed her position there for 24 years. She had many good friends at the school and was especially fond of the other ladies who made that kitchen special. Jen loved to watch and feed the birds in her yard. She had a strong affinity for dogs and cats, especially her dogs, Rosebud and Maddie. She was very creative and crafted for many years. Jen is survived by Ben, her husband of 70 years. She is also survived by her children, Brenda (John) Albrecht, Marilyn (Joe) Weisner, Benji (Bev) Goode, Sherry (Elliott) Turpin all of Greenfield and Patty (Jim) Self of Oxford, Miss. Jen

was blessed with 11 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, all of whom survive. She was preceded in death by her brother Harold (Sue, surviving) Cannedy and her sister Doris (Windell) Handling. Those who knew Jen know she hated being fussed over and would rather give than receive. Per her wishes, cremation rights have been accorded and no public funeral service will be held. Anyone who wishes to honor Jen may make a donation to Alzheimer’s research or PAWS at 400 W. Walnut Street in Jacksonville, IL 62650. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Williamson Funeral Home in Jacksonville is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be left online at www.

He worked for Reynolds Buick for several years and was self-employed for ten years. He went to work for Carnation (later Nestle) in Jacksonville in 1970 and retired in 1991 as a maintenance supervisor. He belonged to Caterpillar Fire Department for five years and the Roodhouse Fire Department for 42 years. Mr. Taylor loved to travel seeing this great country. He also enjoyed hunting and casinos. He loved his family. A funeral service was held at 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, at Williamson Funeral Home, burial followed Fernwood Cemetery in Roodhouse. The family met friends from 12 until 2 p.m. Monday at the funeral home. Memorials are suggested to the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, or the Roodhouse Fire Protection District.

The arc of history may bend towards justice, but while it is bending, there is a lot of evil and mayhem. Perhaps the moral of the human story is that we can’t rely on our own understanding, or our goodness, because both are deficient in solving the myriad problems plaguing us. – Christopher Simon

What is Salvation? Jews are proud of their lineage. They knew who God was, who Moses was and they knew the law, but there is more to it than that. Salvation comes by faith, not just because your parents are saved. Salvation is not by works. Through Christ and Christ alone can you be justified (saved). Works won’t get you to Heaven. If it depended

on works no one would make it to Heaven. Being justified is not a license to sin. If we are saved and love Jesus we will keep his commandments. We are called to live for Christ. We are saved by Jesus through faith. Salvation comes because Jesus died on a cross for the sins of the world. Come and be with us next Sunday.

ing was from 2 Timothy 4:1-8, with the message centered on verse three. The apostle Paul was writing to Timothy from his prison cell and later in these verses, would write “the time of my departure is at hand.” Meaning he knew death was close by. Paul charged Timothy to “preach the word!” It was important for Timothy to preach the true word of God and not man’s word. Anything else is foolish folly and leads to destruction. This is still true today. Pastors and ministers are to preach the true word of God. Paul warned Timothy that there would be those who would have itching ears, meaning they did not want to hear sound doctrine. This also is true

today. Our prayer request are as follows: Nancy, Keith, Ava, Dan, Bonnie, Ron, Harold, Jane, Alex, Ron, Glenna four unspoken, Melissa, Robert, Margie and pastor David. I shared a praise with our group, our daughter, Tracy was in a wreck this past Thursday morning here in Jacksonville. She was not hurt, nor was it her fault. Cars and vans can be replaced. We thanked God for her safety. We also thanked god for safe travel for Robert, Harold and Jan. We invite you to join us for Sunday morning worship at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday evening Bible study at 6:30 p.m.

Trust in the Lord iberal secular humanism wants everyone to be happy and healthy and assumes that science and technology will go a long way towards solving problems such as disease and poverty. It also assumes that people are basically good. But a realistic appraisal of the world’s problems, at least from a historical perspective, suggests otherwise. People are prone to doing horrible things, and often use science and technology to advance war, or simply for profit, even at the expense of the environment and the world’s most vulnerable people. Scientific and technological advances often bring with them new, unforeseen problems. Can the human race save itself by its own efforts? Or is redemption possible only through divine intervention? The biblical story of the flood is perhaps relevant here. We can only imagine God shaking his head and asking if giving humans the freedom to do as they wish was ever a good idea, but intervening nonetheless.

Moran receives Links of Strength award

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press There are few people in the North Greene area who don’t know who Carl Moran is. After all, he has worked at the same banking institution in White Hall for the past 42 years. Not many people can say they have been working for the same company for 42 years, but Carl Moran can. Moran, a 1973 graduate of North Greene High School, started working at the White Hall National Bank as a teller in 1976 working his way up the banking ladder to assistant cashier, then cashier, vice president and eventually, president. The bank was sold in 2002 becoming White Hall Bank, and then again in 2012 when it was bought by People’s Bank. Moran is currently Community Bank president, but has also spent time as director and co-director of the Board of Directors of the bank. Moran has spent his entire life trying to make the North Greene area a better place to live through his efforts in a variety of organizations. For this, he has been chosen as the October Link of Strength recipient – something that was started by Hillview resident Cary Knox to recognize those who go above and beyond for their community. “I kind of came up with this idea because it is important to have leaders in your community, and sometimes those leaders don’t get recognized for what all they do for their community,� Knox said. “What we are going to do today is talk about some of the things you have done through the bank and through this community and how you have been able to help and provide strength to people over the years.� Moran participates in a variety of organizations. He is currently Vice President of the North Greene Chamber of Commerce, Vice Chairman of the Greene County Economic Development Group, Treasurer of the North Greene Educational Foundation. He is also a member of the Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association in Jacksonville and the Citizen’s FBI Academy Alumni Association in Springfield. He also belongs to the Masonic Lodge in White Hall and he has also held various positions in the Shrine and Scottish Rites. Ironically though, Moran doesn’t see himself as a leader. “I don’t ever perceive myself to be leader – I try to be a good follower,� he said. “Everything that I am involved in is important to me in one way or another for different reasons.� Having grown up in the White Hall community as a child and having worked here his entire adult life, Moran has seen a change in the community and not a very good one. “When I was a child, on Saturday night,

you couldn’t even find a parking place on Main Street because everyone came out to shop and visit,� Moran said. “Not only was it good for the businesses in town, but it was also a social time because certain people came to town at certain times and they would just go from car to car to visit.� The population has dwindled, stores have closed and young people are moving away from the area and not returning. “Right now, the North Greene Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Group are working on trying to get something happening in Greene County,� Moran said. “We need to get some things happening in this county, because it was nothing like I remember growing up and that is sad.� The North Greene Educational Association is a relatively new group that was started last year and they are working to help the younger generation possibly find a career that could keep them in the area. “We have applied for a grant and we are trying to get donations so we can get a CNA program going at the high school,� Moran said. “Hopefully, this program will be able to provide students with the start to a vocation when they graduate.� The Masonic Lodge is equally important because they provide a $1,000 scholarship to a North Greene graduate every year. Moran is seeing a positive movement in that organization. “We have had some younger members join the lodge recently which is really nice,� Moran said. “We need more young people to join and come and be involved. For so long it’s just been mainly us older members, which is the way with a lot of organizations.� Moran said there is a misconception that the Masonic Lodge is just a bunch of old men. “I heard a young person say the other night that we have ‘generational differences,’� Moran said. “Well, yeah, I like to think maybe some of us older ones know a little bit of something you (younger ones) might benefit from.� Moran recently returned from escorting his father on the Honor Flight. “This was actually the second time I’ve been on the flight, but this time it was extra special because it was my father I was escorting,� Moran said. “It was also special because it was the flight where 28 people from the White Hall and Roodhouse area all went on the same flight.� As amazing as the trip itself was, the reception they got upon their return to Springfield was the most touching. “By the size of the crowd waiting for us at that airport, I doubt if there was a single person left in the North Greene area,� Moran said. “It was kind of unreal, and during mail call on the plane on the way home, when they would read a name and the town they were from, they kept saying White Hall, White Hall, White Hall until one guy com-

mented ‘is there anyone left in town?’� Moran was also one of four individuals that sponsored a World War II veteran the opportunity to take a flight on a B-24. Moran, Willie Rees, Chuck Frost and Rick Hires each contributed the funding necessary to allow John Neece of Roodhouse the opportunity to take this flight “When we discovered they were bringing this B-24 into Springfield and that you could take a 15 minute flight, we thought of John (Neece),� Moran said. “We all chipped in so he could go on that flight, and he said he had not been on one of those, or even seen one, since he got out of the service. It was very gratifying to afford him this opportunity.� Knox explained that the message of the Links of Strength is a spiritual one. “The links make up a cross, and while you and I are similar in our links on the cross, there is one that is different and that is Christ,� Knox said. “As I try to portray the message, Christ is the one who holds us all together and the one who gives us the strength to do the things we do.� Moran agreed 100 percent. “Growing up in a Christian home, it is difficult for me to perceive people who don’t think about that,� he said. “How can you not


have somebody to go to that is above and beyond what anybody on earth is able to do? I tell people that when I get up in the morning I say ‘You (God) have to take care of me because no one else is going to.’�

Take a step into the past; Old Settlers Days returns By RACHEL MCGLASSON Greene Prairie Press Teepees and canvas tents will soon start popping up along the Kampsville riverfront as the 38th annual Old Settlers Days approach. The riverfront will be transformed Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13 and 14 and it will feel like you take a step back in time as you get a glimpse of what it may have looked like when pioneers settled beneath the bluffs in the 1800s. And it’s not just the sights that will take you back. The riverfront will be covered with vendors and demonstrators showing what was sold and used in those times and how they made it. Blacksmithing, flint-knapping and pottery making will be just a few of the things guests can get a glimpse of how to make. Each day the festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This year, musical talents Back in the Saddle will be performing, as well as the “Wild West Show� performed by the Camo family. Back in the Saddle will be on stage from noon until 4 p.m. both days. Performances by the “Whip Guy� will take place at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Children are sure to be entertained all day with a petting zoo, pony rides, jewelry making, face painting, old time peddle cars and a children area full of activities. Vendors will set up shop, selling everything from herbs and soaps to potpourri and candles. Demonstrators will show off their skills in soap making, pottery making, blacksmithing, bow building, flint knapping, woodworking, chainsaw carving and more. And of course, re-enactors will fill the festival grounds, camping in their authentic lodging and cooking over open fires. Stop and chat to get a feel for what life was once like. Admission to the festival is fee, with ample parking and handicap accessible grounds.

0F&XOO\+HULWDJH3URMHFWKRVWV VHFRQGDQQXDO.QDS,Q By RACHEL MCGLASSON Greene Prairie Press It isn’t just the Kampsville riverfront that will be offering a unique look at historic practices this weekend. The McCully Heritage Project and Center for American Archeology will be hosting the second annual Kampsville Knap-in Oct. 13 and 14. “This event is both fun and education and ties in really nicely with the activities going on at Old Settlers Days in Kampsville,� Michelle Berg Vogel, director of the McCully Heritage project, said. A knap-in is a gathering of flintnappers, or individuals who make stone tools. The event will highlight these flintknappers from around the area and demonstrate their skills and techniques in making stone tools. But flintknapping isn’t the only thing you can learn at the knapin. On Saturday, a traditional bow maker will be demonstrating traditional bow and arrow making techniques. Visitors will even have the opportunity to shoot with a traditional bow and arrow. But if that isn’t enough, visitors can also try their hand at throwing atl atls, an ancient spear. Kathryn Chapman, educational coordinator for the Center for American Archeology, will be available to teach some atl atl techniques, as well as flintknapping to younger visitors. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dave Nolan, an archeologist with the Illinois State Archeological Survey, will be identifying artifacts and collections for anyone who would like to bring something in. While the identification is for educational purposes only and no values will be given, anyone who brings an item or collection is certain to learn something new about their treasure. Other activities include rock vendors, creek walks and a nature walk around the property at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Kampsville Knap-in is free and open to the public. Activities will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, with artifact identification from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a nature walk at 2:30 p.m., and 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday.

State Fire Marshal recognizes National Fire Prevention Week Governor Bruce Rauner has proclaimed Oct. 7 through 13 Fire Prevention Week in Illinois. It coincides with National Fire Prevention Week and commemorates the Great Chicago Fire that caused devastating damage and killed more than 250 people in 1871. This year, National Fire Prevention Week’s theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.� Fire fighters across the state will be visiting schools to teach students the importance of fire safety, emergency preparedness and how to

reduce the risks of a starting fire. “More than 100 people died as a result of fire in Illinois last year,� Fire Marshal Matt Perez said. “We want to bring that number down by making sure people understand the dangers associated with fire. Education is key when it comes to saving lives. Teams from local fire departments across the state will be out all week to educate people on how to stay safe and be prepared in the event of a fire.� The National Fire Prevention Association recommends the following

fire safety practices: Q “LOOK� for places fire could start. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them. Q “LISTEN� for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to an outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet. Q “LEARN� two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Maintenance key to functioning farms The family automobile is not the only piece of equipment that requires routine upkeep to ensure it is operating properly. Life on a farm can come to a screeching halt if farm equipment is not properly maintained. Farmers invest hundreds of thousands of dollars on agricultural equipment, such as tractors, tillers, hoppers and dozers. Adhering to maintenance schedules can prevent breakdowns and decrease the need for potentially costly emergency repairs. QKeep it clean Cleaning the surface of equipment can go a long way toward keeping it operating smoothly. Use a pressure washer to remove caked-on mud and other debris. Titan iron suppliers recommend quickly washing equipment after usage so that substances do not have the chance to harden. QLearn the equipment Over time, it is possible to employ your senses of sight, sound and even smell to determine if equipment is working properly. Familiarize yourself with the owner’s manual so you can troubleshoot minor problems. Any unusual sounds, odors or responses from the gear should be noted. QRoutine maintenance checks Routinely inspect hoses, fittings and seals to ensure they are in good working condition. Be sure fluids, such as coolant and oil, are at the proper levels. Check and replace filters as needed. Tires need to be properly inflated, and inspect the battery for corrosion or other signs that it may need to be replaced. Check belts for cracks. Tour the exterior of the equipment looking at signals and lights to ensure they

are in proper working order. Hardware should be tightened and any missing pieces replaced. Heavy farm equipment needs motor oil, hydraulic oil and filters changed more frequently than automobiles. Such equipment also may need more frequent lubrication of chains and cables. Always check and inspect equipment prior to jobs requiring heavy and extended usage. QExpect some welding Have a knowledgeable welder on call to make repairs as needed, or develop your skills to a point where you feel comfortable making your own spot repairs. The experts at Miller, producers of welding equipment, say cleaning the surface area and removing any paint, oil or corrosion from the metal area that needs repairing can make for smooth, durable welds. Multi-process welding generators and accessories can ensure the right welds for repairs in the field or in the shop. Maintenance on farm equipment helps keep operations running along and protects expensive investments.

Facts and figures on farm safety

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, agriculture is among the most hazardous industries. Fatal and nonfatal injuries pose a significant threat to farmers, including the many young people who work on farms. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, in an effort to promote productive and safe workplaces, supports programs that conduct research on injuries associated with agriculture as well as pesticide exposure, pulmonary disease, musculoskeletal disorders, hearing loss and stress. Studying the results of such research, compiled by NIOSH, may compel veteran and novice farmers to further emphasize safety measures and promote practices that can reduce risk for accidents on the farm. Q Estimates indicate that there were roughly 2.1 million full-time workers employed in production agriculture in 2017 and between 1.4 and 2.1 million hired crop workers employed annually on crop farms in the United States. Q An estimated 893,000 young people under

20 years of age resided on farms in 2014. More than half of those young people performed farm work, and an additional 266,000 youth were hired to work on farms in 2014. Q Each day, roughly 100 agricultural workers suffer injuries that cause them to miss time at work. Q In 2014, 12,000 youth were injured on farms, and 4,000 of those youths could trace their injuries to farm work. Q In 2016, 417 farmers and farm workers died from work-related injuries. Tractor overturns and other transportation incidents were the leading cause of death for these farmers and farm workers. Q A rollover protection system, or ROPS, is a structure, similar to rollcages and rollbars in cars and trucks, intended to protect farm equipment operators from injuries caused by overturns or rollovers. NIOSH notes that an ROPS is the most effective way to prevent overturn deaths. Despite that, in 2014, only 62 percent of tractors used on farms in the U.S. were equipped with an ROPS.

Gourds, squashes and pumpkins, oh my! Halloween takes place during a time of year characterized by earthen-colored chrysanthemums, leaf-lined walkways and crisp autumn air. As colorful as the costumes children wear for trick-or-treating may be, nature’s beauty is unsurpassed this time of year, and the scores of pumpkins, gourds and squashes on display only add to that colorful melange. The Cucurbitaceae family may be best known for pumpkins, squash and gourds, but there actually are 800 species that belong to this family. While they share many of the same properties, these fruits each have their own unique attributes. The main differences between squashes, gourds and pumpkins is their intended purposes — whether they’re ornamental or edible. QSquash Squashes come in summer and winter varieties. Winter ones do not actually grow in the winter; in fact, they’re harvested in late summer and early fall, but the name references the hard shell casing that protects the tender pulp inside. Zucchini are summer squash because their outer flesh is tender, while butternut, acorn, spaghetti, and hubbard squashes are winter squashes because they feature a tough skin. Even though it takes some effort

to crack that shell, the dense, nutrient-rich flesh inside is well worth the workout. QGourds Gourds are essentially ornamental squashes; they aren’t cultivated for eating. Instead they are bred to look beautiful and unique in autumn centerpieces. Types of gourds include autumn wing gourd, warted gourds, turban gourds, and bottle gourds. Each gourd is unique in its shape and color. QPumpkins Pumpkins come in ornamental and edible varieties.

Even though all pumpkins can be consumed, some taste better than others. Small pumpkins tend to be decorative because, according to Nutritious Life, they do not have enough meat inside to make them worthy of cooking. However, sugar pumpkins are best for baking and cooking favorite recipes, states the resource Pumpkin Nook. The festive hues and flavors of squashes, gourds and pumpkins are one more thing that makes Halloween and autumn special.

The Illinois Department of Public Health provided funding for the program. It is sponsored by HSHS St. Francis Hospital and the Macoupin County Health Department. “Diabetes education was identified as one of the top health care needs according to a health care needs assessment survey conducted by the hospital in 2012,� Bertolino said. “We have made diabetes education one of our key initiatives for community outreach over the past several years. Providing this class is a step toward meeting this need for people dealing with diabetes issues.� The program runs once each week for 2 1/2 hours.

Regrowing and caring for hair after chemotherapy Chemotherapy and radiation are common treatment options for people who have been diagnosed with cancer. While radiation may be targeted at specific areas, chemotherapy is systemic. This means it affects the entire body. As a result, as chemotherapy kills fastgrowing cancer cells, it also kills or slows the growth of healthy cells, including hair cells, that divide and grow quickly, explains the National Cancer Institute. When chemotherapy treatment is completed, the body is typically capable of regenerating new hair, but that can take some time. Women who consider their hair a large part of their identity may have strong concerns and fears regarding hair loss and what their hair may look like when it begins to regrow. Understanding what to expect and what they can do to facilitate the regrowth of hair can help women better handle what lies ahead. New hair typically begins to grow within one to two months of the last chemo treatment. Breastcancer. org says people who have undergone chemotherapy may notice soft fuzz forming on their head roughly two to three weeks after the end of chemo. This will be followed by real hair growing at its normal rate one month afterward.

Two months after the last treatment, an inch of hair can be expected. How hair grows back elsewhere on the body, such as the eyelashes, eyebrows and pubic area, varies from person to person. Experts at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Dermatologic Care Center at Northwestern University in Chicago recommend speaking with a doctor if hair is not regrowing quickly, which can be the result of low levels of iron or zinc or even thyroid problems. To help the process along, some doctors suggest the use of supplements like biotin. The National Institutes of Health says biotin is a B vitamin found in many foods that helps turn carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy. There is some evidence that taking biotin can help thicken and speed up the growth of hair and nails, but more research is needed. Rogaine®, the baldness treatment, also may be advised, as it’s been shown to speed hair regrowth in breast cancer patients who have lost their hair, advises Health magazine. It is not uncommon for hair grown after chemotherapy to look and feel different from hair prior to treatment. Someone who once had straight hair may develop a wavy mane after-

wards. While drastic changes are not common, blonde hair may darken. As hair grows in, certain areas on the head may grow faster than others. Working with an experienced stylist can help a person achieve a look that is evened out and stylish at any length. Rosette la Vedette, a headwear retailer and cancer resource, suggests making a first trip back to the salon a special experience with a glass of champagne. Cutting hair won’t make it grow faster, but it can help a woman return to a sense of normalcy. It can be nerve-wracking to wait for hair to regrow after chemotherapy. But patience and understanding the road ahead can assuage any fears breast cancer patients may have about regrowing their hair.

Breast cancer survival rates soar A breast cancer diagnosis can be a devastating blow. Upon receiving such a diagnosis, people may begin to ask questions about treatment and the impact cancer may have on their personal lives. Many people who are diagnosed with cancer also begin to wonder about their mortality. An estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 63,960 new cases of non-invasive, or in situ, breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year, according to According to the latest statistics presented by the Canadian Breast Cancer foundation, 26,300 women and 230 men had been diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada in 2017. The good news is that breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000 after increasing for the previous two decades. In addition, death rates from breast cancer have been decreasingly steadily since 1989. The National Cancer Institute says that the change in age-adjusted mortality rates are an indicator of the progress being made in the fight against breast cancer. The most recent SEER Cancer Statistics Review released in April 2018 indicates cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent per year between the years of 2006 and 2015. The American Cancer Society says that

decreasing death rates among major cancer types, including prostate, colorectal, lung, and breast cancers, are driving the overall shift in survival. The ACS says breast cancer death rates among women declined by 39 percent from 1989 to 2015. That progress is attributed to improvements in early detection and treatment protocols. For anyone doing the math, over the last 25 years or so, 322,000 lives have been saved from breast cancer. A similar scenario has unfolded in Canada. Breast cancer mortality rates in Canada recently decreased to 21.4

percent, down from 21.8 percent in 2011, states data from the Canadian Cancer Society. Currently, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer among Canadians is 87 percent, and the five-year net survival in the United States is 85 percent. Increased knowledge about breast cancer, early detection through examinations and mammography and improved treatments are helping to drive up the survival rates of breast cancer. Although this does not make diagnosis any less scary, it does offer hope to those recently diagnosed.

Wienie roast Brysin Taylor, 8, of White Hall, roasts a couple of wienies over a fire Saturday afternoon in Whiteside Park for the third annual White Hall Police Department’s Fall Festival.

Fall is officially here and so are cooler temperatures. The Office of the State Fire Marshal is offering a few tips that will help Illinoisans stay safe as temperatures continue to drop. “With cooler weather comes increased fire risk and we want everyone to stay safe and fire free this fall,” Fire Marshal Matt Perez said. “It is important that people stay alert for potential fire hazards and practice fire safety while enjoying the cooler weather.” This Fall, be sure to remove leaves and debris such as sticks, branches and shrubs from the roofs and gutters of homes as they act as fuel to a fire. These items should also be cleared before lighting a bonfire. It is recommended that all recreational fires,

such as bonfires, be contained in a pit, with sidewalls, and do not exceed three feet wide and two feet tall. Avoid burning leaves and debris on windy days, as wind can cause a fire to get out of control quickly. Always follow local ordinances when burning and disposing of yard waste and remember, embers from burning leaves can spread and start a larger fire. All fires are recommended to be a minimum of 15 feet from structures and combustible materials and should remain attended at all times. This helps ensure the fire is controlled and prevents it from spreading. Make sure all fall and holiday decorations are flame retardant and use a battery light instead of a candle in jack o’ lanterns. Anyone opting to use a space heat-

er to keep warm should be sure it is placed at least three feet away from other objects, such as curtains, and always be sure to unplug it when it’s not in use. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) space heaters account, annually, for 43 percent of U.S. home heating fires. All fireplaces should be cleaned and inspected before use to ensure everything is in proper working order. Utilize a fireplace screen to keep sparks from floating out of a fireplace and always put out a fire before going to bed or leaving the house. Additional fire safety tips can be found on the NFPA website or on the Office of the State Fire Marshal website.

Illinois Department of Revenue launches new website The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) is inviting taxpayers to explore the new look of its redesigned website; The new mobile-friendly website features simplified site navigation and enhanced functionality to provide businesses, tax professionals, and the public easier access to the information needed most. “As times have changed, so have

the ways taxpayers access and consume information,” Connie Beard, IDOR director, said. “With this website redesign, we make it easier for the public to navigate our information, no matter what device is utilized.” Key features of IDOR’s new website include encrypted security, better accessibility, a drop-down menu system at the top of every page and real-time traffic-driven listings show-

ing users what questions, forms, and tax types are currently garnering wide interest. Visitors accustomed to the former IDOR website at http://tax.illinois. gov will be automatically redirected to the new website located at https:// IDOR advises anyone with previously saved bookmarks to visit the new website to update their favorites.

Red Cross urges Americans to take action during Fire Prevention Week Fire Prevention Week began Oct. 7, and the American Red Cross reminds everyone to take two simple steps – practice fire drills at home and test smoke alarms monthly – to stay safe from the nation’s most frequent and deadliest disaster. On average, seven people die every day from home fires, which take more lives each year than all other natural disasters combined in the U.S., according to the National Fire Protection Association. But working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half. That’s why the Red Cross is working with community partners to install free smoke alarms, help families create home fire escape plans, and provide public fire prevention and safety resources through its Home Fire Campaign, a nationwide effort to reduce fire-related deaths and injuries. Since the campaign began in October 2014, it’s reached more than 1.6 million people and is credited with saving 472 lives nationwide. Experts say that today’s home fires burn faster than ever, leaving people with only as little as two minutes to escape a burning residence. But many mistakenly believe they have more time, according to a Red Cross survey last year. During Fire Prevention Week, the Red Cross urges everyone to take these lifesaving steps: Q Develop a fire escape plan with everyone in your household and practice it at least twice a year. Need help with your plan? Use these free Home Fire Campaign resources. Q Install smoke alarms in your home, on every level and outside each sleeping area. Test them once a month and replace the batteries at least once a year if required. Q Teach children what smoke alarms sound like and what they should do if they hear one. Q Make sure all household members know two ways to escape from every room. Q Establish a family meeting spot outside. Through the Home Fire Campaign, Red Cross volunteers and community partners continue to mount a nationwide effort across the country to save lives and curb fire-related injuries. Over the past four years, Red Cross volunteers and more than 4,500 partners have gone doorto-door in high-risk neighborhoods to deliver free

preparedness resources through the campaign’s Sound the Alarm canvassing events. So far, they have: Q Reached more than 1.6 million people through home visits in nearly 14,000 cities and towns. Q Installed 1.4 million free smoke alarms. Q Replaced more than 67,550 smoke alarm batteries. Q Helped families make more than 514,200 fire escape plans.

Q Reached almost 1.2 million children through youth preparedness programs. The Red Cross depends on the generous support of the American public to fulfill its crucial mission. If someone would like to help, please consider making a donation today by visiting, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 gift. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and pro-

vides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Sherry Fraley/Greene Prairie Press

The theme for the week long events, “Now Showing: A Night To Remember,” lent excitement to the announcement of Greenfield’s king and queen.

Say hello to the 2018 Carrollton High School homecoming king and queen who were crowned during halftime of Friday night’s homecoming game against North Greene. The 2018 King is Brett Lehr, son of Chris and Tammy Lehr while the crown for homecoming queen was passed to Hannah Krumwiede, daughter of Jeff and Lisa Krumwiede.

Dean Bishop, of Greenfield, served as the 2018 Homecoming Parade Marshall. The Greenfield Student Council chose Bishop to lead the parade because of the many years of service that he has given to the Tigers. For 55 years, Bishop has been climbing the stairs to the crow's nest at Fleur de Lis Field to perform one job or another. He has ran the clock, articulated stats and has been known predominately as the “Voice of the Tigers” for the last several years.

The Greenfield-Northwestern cheerleaders had a tub of candy to throw at the homecoming parade and big voices to lead the cheers during the bonfire, parade and homecoming game. From left to right: Machala Kaydus, Breanna McMillen, Carly Gregory and Leah Jones.

The freshman class of Greenfield and Northwestern took first place honors in the homecoming float competition. The homecoming theme, “Now Showing: A Night to Remember,” was depicted by a lot of film reels and movie input during the parade. The Class of 2022’s float version was “Tigers Beat Warriors in 1 Take.” Head Coach Joe Pembrook’s role as director of the film was played by Pembrook’s youngest son, Dylan, who sat in the director's chair on the winning float.

Carrollton homecoming queen candidate Christie Settles practices the queenly wave while her escort, Nathan Walker, tries to open a bag of candy, while enjoying some candy himself, during the Homecoming Parade Friday, Oct. 5.

Bad boys

Calhoun’s Brad Rose finds a handle on the facemask of Greenfield-Northwestern’s Denver Davenport as Rose tries to bring Davenport down with help from Cory Nelson #5 and Cody Lamarsh #54. Lamarsh also has a hold on the Tiger jersey of Dylan Pohlman trying to keep Pohlman contained and out of the play while Greenfield-Northwestern’s Hayden Lansaw comes in to assist on the offense. The first down obtained on this play set up a Davenport touchdown a few plays later for the Tigers in the WIVC South contest.
