Republicans sweep County Board By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

D

emocrat candidates might have fared well statewide, but in Greene County the voters overwhelmingly cast their votes for the Republican candidates, especially at the local level. With three open seats on the Greene County Board and three Republicans running along with three Democrats for these seats, the Republicans made a clean sweep claiming all three seats.

Republican Andrea Schnelten received 22.10 percent of the vote followed by Regan Joehl with 20.25 percent and Christopher Elliott with 17.26 percent. Vote totals were 2,539, 2,326 and 1,983, respectively. Democrats Jerry Reno, incumbent John Goode and Nathan Edwards received 1,916, 1,853 and 870 votes, respectively Long-time Republican Chairman Joe Nord did not seek re-election after more than three decades on the board, nor did Republican A.J. McAdams, who defeated Jerry Reno in the last election for a twoyear term on the board. The third seat was held by Goode, who was defeated in his

bid for another term. This was the only contested race in the county. Sheriff Rob McMillen, Democrat; Circuit Clerk Debbie Banghart, Democrat; and Treasurer Kirby Ballard, Republican; all ran unopposed. Just over 49.5 percent of the county cast a ballot in this election with 4,429 votes cast out of 8,946 registered voters. Republican candidates swept the county in all but one office, that of Secretary of State, with Democrat Jessie White eeking past Republican Jason Helland by a mere 28 votes: 2,134 for White to 2,106 for Helland. In the race for Governor, former State Senator Sam McCann, running in the

newly formed Conservative Party, came in second behind Republican incumbent Bruce Rauner and ahead of Democrat J.B. Pritzker. Totals were 1,842 for Rauner, 1,437 for McCann and 1,019 for Pritzker. Republican Erica Harold garnered 2,897 votes to Kwame Raoul’s 1,115 while Republican Jim Dodge swept Democrat Michael Frerichs 2,716 votes to 1,286. For Congressman in the 13th Congressional District, Rodney Davis, seeking his third term, solidly defeated Betsy Londrigan 2,982 votes to 1,326. For Comptroller, Republican Darlene Senger swept Democrat Susana Mendoza 2,630 votes to 1,411.

“Things have changed a lot in rural America over the last three decades, and that can be seen in the demise of the family owned businesses that used to occupy the square.�

Pat Pinkston Spokesman, Carrollton Square Initiative Back in June, Pat Pinkston, spokesman for what is being called the Carrollton Square Initiative, approached the Carrollton city council with ideas for making the downtown square district a more vital part of the community.

He was back at the October City Council Workshop with updates to this initiative. “Back in June, we spoke to you about how we were starting to engage in looking at economic development in Carrollton,� Pinkston said. “We are back now with the next phase of that, and I want to solicit your leadership and your support as we think about how to go forward with this project.� Like most rural communities, the downtown business district of Carrollton is a ghost of what it used to be 30 years ago. “Things have changed a lot in rural America over the last three decades, and that can be seen in the demise of the family owned businesses that used to occupy the square,� Pinkston said. “The big thing now they talk about is ‘fly over country’ – areas which no longer support the businesses they once did. Carrollton falls into that category.� Pinkston spent 40 years with John Deere working in the agricultural industry and he’s seen the effects of progress on the local farmer. “It doesn’t take as many farmers these days to farm the land as it used to,� he said. “Obviously, that has driven to a decline in the population of rural areas and that has had an impact on this community as well as many others.� Brick and mortar businesses are (See, DOWNTOWN, A2)

Pine Tree Cemetery holds yearly fundraiser By ZACHARY DAUM Greene Prairie Press The Pine Tree Cemetery will be holding its annual fundraiser in the old Patterson school building on Nov. 17. The cemetery board has put together a host of activities for those interested in assisting the cemetery. They will be taking donations; however, they are also offering an auction, a 50/50 cash prize raffle and a quilt raffle. The quilt was donated for the raffle by Sue Vineyard. All of the proceeds will go toward paying for cemetery care. Bill Dunlap is a four year member

of the cemetery board, has been going to the annual fundraiser since he was a child and has personal connections to the cemetery. “I’ve got grandparents and great uncles and aunts out there,� Dunlap said. With the rising costs of cemetery care and inflation, Dunlap hopes to see as many people come out to support the cemetery as possible. He also discussed past visitor numbers and how much is often donated to the cemetery. “I just need everybody to come help support it, because nothing is getting any cheaper,� Dunlap said. “A lot of

people come and eat, maybe donate and leave. Some stay for the auction only. Four or five hundred people are usually coming and going out there. We raise somewhere between $7,000 to $9,000 each year. All the money goes right to the cemetery for mowing. It helps, but it doesn’t quite pay for all of it each year.� Dunlap also discussed how important it is to keep the cemeteries funded and maintained, as well as his work on the Patterson cemetery. “You don’t think about these kinds of things until you get older. To keep a cemetery up it requires some money.

We are so proud of the job those guys do out there and I think it’s one of the best looking cemeteries in the county and I’m pretty proud of that,� Dunlap said. “We also pay for the Patterson Cemetery. We are called the Pine Tree Board but nobody is there to take care of that one, so we fund that, too. I don’t think a lot of people realize that.� A meal will be served at the fundraiser inside the school cafeteria, with food consisting of chili, potato soup, hotdogs, hamburgers and cookies. Music will be provided from 1 to 3 p.m. by The Wanderers band and the auction will be held at 4 p.m.

Library program focuses on senior fraud

Š 2018

GREENE PRAIRIE PRESS

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Senior fraud is one of the most rapidly growing types of fraud in the United States aimed at one of our most vulnerable demographic groups. There are countless types of scams perpetrated against the national senior citizens and perpetrators are coming up with new ones each and every day.

Carrollton resident creates toy picked up by Mattel Submitted photo

Firehouse trick or treating Avery Wright, 5 of Rockbridge, participated in the Halloween festivities in Carrollton this year, stopping by the Carrollton Fire Department where she got to sit in a fire truck.

By ZACHARY DAUM Greene Prairie Press One of this year’s hot new toys, Lil’ Gleemerz, gets its origins from Greene County resident Michael Gramelspacher and his partner, Rory Sledge. Gramelspacher and Sledge met in college and have been working on projects ever since. Together, they created SG Labs in the East Alton area and have been creating toys based on technology they invent for 12 years. Lil’

Gleemerz is one such project. Lil’ Gleemerz are based on lemurs but with a dose of fantasy. They are interactive animal toys that react to where you touch them, speak over 100 different phrases, have a dance party mode and have a light up tail, complete with multiple games. Gramelspacher spoke of the inner workings of toy development and how he pitched the idea of Lil’ Gleemerz to toy giant Mattel in a different way than most. (See, MATTEL, A2)

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Teaching my grandchildren the ways of hunting As a grandparent (I prefer poppy) I am excited about the times I can take my own grandchildren on some of their first hunting experiences. However, I also enjoy the occasional opportunities to take other children, youth and young adults into this wonderful world. I can honestly say I get as excited and nervous as they do just before they pull the trigger. I do, however, temper my celebration until we see the evidence of a well-placed shot lying on the ground. I then go nuts. I think what intrigues me about sitting in the blind with different hunters is how each come with different personalities, expectations and desires. The younger ones are so much fun. My fear is they may face a future without the ability to hunt, whether it is because of those who are anti-hunting or because of the friendly fire that is coming from the

ever-increasing license fees. I digress, but I needed to say that as I did last week. When taking these younger ones hunting, I prefer to take them to the barn loft where they don’t have to be too still and where the weather is not a factor. The bales of hay also make for a perfect gun rest. This was the case with nineyear-old Riley and me. We had situated ourselves overlooking the field, just behind the bales of hay and just in front of a small heater. We were watching two doe when another one seemingly appeared just to the right of our opening. It couldn’t get much better than this even though dark was setting in fast. I moved Riley around slowly in order to get him situated for the shot. That’s when I began to realize who was really in control. His first revelation to me was that he was not sure if

he wanted to shoot this one. She seemed small, and there might be a buck behind her. I understood his reasoning even though I was taken aback by his hunting wisdom. After a few seconds (that seemed like forever) he decides that he would shoot. Once again, I situated him for the shot, pushed the safety off and proceeded to prepare for whatever might happen next. But I wasn’t prepared for the next instructions he gave to his guide. “Are you going to film this?” He said. Now my heart is beating pretty fast and the doe is looking at us. I’m also trying to watch the outcome, make sure Riley doesn’t get too close to the scope, and again, it is getting dark fast. “No, Riley I’m not going to be filming you. Just shoot the deer!” He hugs up to the gun, I

lean over him to watch, a n d then just before he shoots he says, “ Wi l l you put your hands over my ears?” I do. He shoots and immediately yells, “I got him! Now that, my friends, is how every hunt ought to be; where the memories do not come from what is in front of the gun but from what is behind it. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years.

Downtown (Continued from A1) no longer needed due to the availability of just about anything online. “You can get on your computer and just about order anything you need, which has driven many small businesses to close their doors,” Pinkston said. “It has caused a lot of changes in rural communities – industries that used to be in small rural towns have now moved their manufacturing to India or China because it is cheaper.” All of this has led to changes in rural America, not only in Illinois, but in other areas with rural areas, even California, New York, Texas, etcetera. “Any state that has rural areas you are seeing these kinds of changes – a decline in population along with the social changes that come along with it,” Pinkston said. “In many cases, this leads to a lower tax base that makes it very difficult to support the infrastructure of a lot of these rural towns.” What concerns Pinkston most is not fly over states, but rather fly over counties. “These are counties where there is no longer a sufficient mass population or economic vitality to allow people to stop in or stay in that county,” he said. “What they are doing is driving right through that county to get to the next county to find a place to shop, work or live. “How do we address those drive through counties? How do we help turn that around and create a formula that can be used not

only in Carrollton, but in other communities in Illinois, Texas or California? That is what we are looking for.” Pinkston said his passion has always been economic development, and he brings this passion to Carrollton to try to help revitalize the town. Fortunately, for Carrollton, it starts with a very strong base. “You have the courthouse and are the county seat in town and we have iconic structures that people look to and see when they come to this community,” he said. “You are known for your restaurants like Alphonso’s, Brass Door and even Lone Oak, which people from all over drive to. Plus you have the hospital. Do you know how fortunate you are for a community this size to have a hospital in town?” In addition to the hospital, which also offers helicopter services to larger hospitals for emergency cases, there are also numerous doctors, dentists, chiropractors and a local pharmacy. The financial sector is also strong with two well-established banking institutions, Carrollton Bank and CNB, serving the community. The town also boasts a car dealership, something not many towns this size still have, as well as numerous mechanics and body shops. Agriculturally, there are two farm services operations located in town. CHS and FS, one located on the west side of town and one on the east “What you have here is a very strong

base,” Pinkston said. “It’s not like you are starting from ground zero. You have some business owners who are stepping up and trying to renew the square.” The goal becomes to bring new businesses to the square. “How do we go about renewing the buildings we have now to encourage new businesses to locate here,” Pinkston asked. “You take Copper, Stills and Mash and what Karen Lesemann has done with that building and I would put that building in any town, and they would be proud of it. She has done an outstanding job in taking an old building, redoing it and starting up a first class operation that people seek to come to.” Individual efforts by Lesemann, Hamel and Graham, who converted the upstairs of his law office into an Air BNB, and their desire to spread their vision across the square led them to contact Pinkston and Jennifer Russell with the U of I Extension Office. “Making the entire square and Carrollton stronger helps to support their own businesses,” Pinkston said. “So it is a win-win for everyone. People come into the community, spend time here, buy a latte, have a drink maybe, have dinner someplace and you have several businesses benefit from a single visit, perhaps.” Next week, the focus will be on the regional efforts going on in the surrounding area and how they can benefit Carrollton.

taking care of them and in exchange they are writing checks to themselves,” Hatlee said. “Usually, they are desperate for money, but this one is really tough because it is family members doing it. If other family members question the senior about it they will say something like ‘but Andy takes care of me – he goes and gets the groceries for me and if he needs something I tell him to go ahead and get it.’ They feel like if they don’t have them helping them then they don’t know what they are going to do.” The third and final financial abuse scam is a crime of predation. This occurs when trust is established for the specific purpose of financial abuse. Most of these crimes are perpetrated through online relationships and occur over a long period of time so the perpetrator builds trust and a relationship with the victim. “These are people who form relationships with someone on the other end of a computer,” Hatlee said. “Typically, the perps are somewhere in the United States and they seek out individuals who are lonely and looking for companionship. Eventually they build the trust up to where they ask the victim for money for whatever reason, and you have a victim going into their bank wanting to withdraw $3,000 to send to their online friend.” Hatlee said women are more than twice as likely to be scammed as men. “Victims are usually between the ages of 80 and 89 and they live alone,” Hatlee said. “They might need some kind of assistance with their everyday tasks which presents an opportunity to be scammed.” Sixty percent of the perpetrators of these crime are usually men between the ages of 30 and 59 and 51 percent of the crimes are carried out by strangers. “Really, it’s almost half and half family members committing the crimes as opposed to strangers,” Hatlee said. “Healthcare fraud accounts for about four percent. While it is the lowest in occurrence, Medicare and Medicaid fraud account for the most money lost.” There are numerous scams at the top of the list geared toward senior citizens. These include telemarketing, internet and mail scamps; fake charities, sweepstakes and healthcare fraud that ranges from billing for services not rendered, to misrepresenting dates of service, location of the services or the provider of the services. “A big one right now going around out there is telling seniors that they have won a cruise,” Hatlee said. “It looks official, they use the same logo, font – make it look really legitimate, but it’s not. They will ask for your banking information in

order to process the sweepstakes and that is all they are really after.” There is also identify theft and financial exploitation including online investment and securities fraud. The top five reasons seniors are targets include – availability, isolation, lonliness, sickness and prosperity. “Some seniors have made a good living and have a nice nest egg to live on,” Hatlee said. “They are targets right along with those who might be all alone with no one to watch after them. They are isolated and form relationships quickly because of this loneliness. Others are sick and just need help from someone and eventually end up being a target of these scammers.” Regardless, the impact of these crimes on the elderly range from a physical to an emotional impact. “Some of them do not have the ablity to recover financially from their losses from these scammers,” Hatlee said. “For others it means a loss of independence because their family feels like they can no longer be trusted to be on their own.” Because they have lost a significant amount of money, it can mean a diminished quality of life – they don’t have the money now to go out and eat or pay for things that they need done because they can no longer do it themselves. Seniors can do things to protect themselves. “First of all, be aware that you are at risk and shred any documents that could be useful to criminals,” Hatlee said. “Check with the Better Business Bureau before acting on a phone call or a letter and ask for information in writing about the organization or agency. Be sure and get your name on a Do-Not-Call Registry.” Other precautions to take to protect oneself include: Q Signing up for Direct Deposit. Q Always review your Explanation of Benefits. Q Never give out personal information on a phone call that you didn’t initiate. Q Never pay for a “free” prize. Q Never be afraid to hang up. More importantly, if you think you have been a victim of a scam be sure and report it. Q Contact the local police department and make a report. Q Get a copy of that report and notify the Better Business Bureau. Q Notify the FIB electronic tips program at tips.fbi.gov. Q Call your bank and/or credit card company and cancel stolen debit or credit cards. Q Close any and all accounts that have been affected.

Library (Continued from A1) “The crime of occasion are incidents that occur because the victim isn’t aware of what the perpetrator wants,” Hatlee said. “So in these types of situations, the perpetrator is most likely someone you don’t know, say someone who is perhaps trying to scan your phone as you are walking through the mall.” That’s not to say that all these crimes are perpetrated by strangers. “Another scam that falls into this category is the ‘grandparent scam’,” Hatlee said. “The grandparent gets a phone call from someone who says, ‘Hey, this is your favorite grandson and I’m in trouble.’ The grandparent then asks, ‘Joey, is that you?’ To which they answer ‘it is’ and then go on to tell them they need money but don’t want to tell mom and dad. But they need it quickly. So, the grandparent thinks it is their Joey, wires them the money, and it is all a scam.” Carrollton resident Neil Gillingham said he has had that very scam done to him, but he didn’t fall for it. “I had a call from a girl claiming to be my granddaughter and she said she needed money and needed it quickly,” Gillingham said. “I knew better than that and when I told her to call her dad, the attorney, and ask him for it – she hung up.” There are times when they go so far as to get names to go along with their scam. “If they really want to work it it, they can find out this sort of information from Facebook, but most of the time they call and use the favorite grandson or granddaughter guise,” Hatlee said. “When the grandparent says it doesn’t sound like them, they give an excuse that they have a cold or are in Vegas and got their nose broken because they owe a lot of money or something like that.” Hatlee said one of these perpetrators was actually caught and put in jail and later talked about how lucrative a business it was for him. “They interviewed this guy and he said that he could make 100 calls a day but he only needed one call a day to turn a profit,” Hatlee said. “He said he didn’t care how many calls he had to make because he wasn’t doing anything else. He had a list of numbers and he just needed one person each day to fall for his scam.” The next is a crime of desperation. This is where family members or friend become so desperate for money that they will do whatever it takes to get it. Many of these family members are dependent on the elder relative for money and housing. “This type of crime is especially sad because typically it is a grandchild who’s living with grandma or grandpa

Mattel (Continued from A1) “What usually happens is we’ll set up a meeting with a toy manufacturer,” Gramelspacher said. “We take the prototype, show it to them, take them through the process and show them how it works. With Gleemerz, we took it a bit further since we weren’t seeing them in person. We designed a package for it, we wrote a back story and we shipped the product to them as if it was a product on the shelf.” For SG Labs, they always start with the technology and build up from there. For this toy they started with the light up tail. “Really what inspired us for this is having this string of interactive lights and putting it into an interactive toy,” Gramelspacher said. “We started with the technology. We thought about what does this look like, and we started out with a lemur and it leaned towards a fantasy character. We started with technology and wrapped the toy and story around it.” Mattel took interest and decided to move forward with production. Gramelspacher chose to pitch the idea to Mattel only. He and his partner specifically chose to pitch only to Mattel because they knew the toy was perfect fit for it. Mattel did make some changes to their original prototype, but Gramelspacher said that he believes the core design and idea are still entirely there. “The essence of the product is what we showed,” Gramelspacher said. “It had the games, the music. What it does, our prototype did. They just added more say-

ings, music and games. They fleshed it out from our sea of ideas and refreshed the looks.” Gramelspacher also discussed the difficulties of working in the Midwest and how many toy inventors really started here in the first place. “It’s a little strange being in the Midwest at all,” Gramelspacher said, noting that many toy companies reside on the US coasts. “Just with the way technology is being able to video chat, share files, you don’t necessarily have to be there (on the coast). It isn’t anything you can’t overcome. If it was 20 years ago that would be different though. Strangely, a lot of toy inventing companies got their start from one place in Chicago, Marvin Glass Studio. People split up from there after it closed. The toy invention industry started in the Midwest area.” As for the future, Gramelspacher is always working on new ideas. “We worked on 76 different products last year,” Gramelspacher said. “We are always showing new things. Things we’ve licensed to Mattel are now getting ready for next year. I designed Gleemerz a while ago and things I am designing now are for 18 months from now. The way toys are, you can’t get attached to one thing because of the industry. You show it to them, they like it and you have to move on to the next market. It’s always a constantly evolving and moving process.” SG Labs will continue to create more toys, with plans already set for 2019 and beyond.

Greene Elite Athletics opens in White Hall By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press A new gymnastics center opened in White Hall over the weekend that is sure to keep the kids jumping, offering a variety of tumbling classes for children from two through high school. Greene Elite Athletics, located on Highway 67 in White Hall, just down from Seton Hall, held an open house on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Nov. 3 through 5, where they accepted memberships for children into a variety of classes being offered at the facility. Greene Elite is owned by Jackie and Brock Schutz of White Hall and it fulfills a dream of Jackie Schutz, who has a background in gymnastics. “I’ve always loved gymnastics, and I love teaching kids so this was a perfect fit for me,” she said. “I took seven years of tumbling growing up and then taught for seven more years, so it’s in my blood. Plus, I thought this was something that this area really needed.” The Schutzs are the parents of two daughters, Taylor, 6, and Tess, 4, and a son, Bo, 2. It doesn’t come as any surprise that Taylor is involved in gymnastics. “Taylor has been going to gymnastics classes over at Turner’s Tumbling in Jerseyville, which is actually where I got my start,” Schutz said. “There are gymnastics classes also offered in Winchester and

Jacksonville, but my whole goal of opening this is to make it more convenient for the parents who have children who want to take tumbling classes but the parents might not have the time to drive to these other places.” About two years ago, the Schutzes entertained the idea of opening a gymnastics center in White Hall and began their quest for a location. “At first we were looking for places to rent, and I remember driving past this building, and I told my husband that this would be a perfect building for what we wanted to do,” Schutz said. “I remember him telling me that this building was built by the Moulton family and has been family owned for all these years and there was no way they would want to sell it.” As Schutz would soon learn, it doesn’t hurt to have friends in the real estate business. “I have a friend who is a real estate agent and she texted me about it and said she had the perfect place for me – meaning this building,” Schutz said. “Before we ever had a location, she told me her daughter would be my first student.” No doubt the Schutzes took a huge leap of faith investing in the building and all the improvements it needed to become a viable business. “For all those years, this building had been used as a storage building and it was perfect for that,” Schutz said. “It was basi-

cally a shell and needed a lot of work to be able to run any kind of business in. We had to put in a new heating and cooling system, windows, restrooms – basically overhaul the entire building before we could open.” The building is huge, offering a 42 foot by 18 foot area of mats for tumbling, several sets of uneven bars, smaller bars for the younger kids, balance beams and rings. However, for right now, the only classes being offered are tumbling classes. “We have allowed for future expansion into other areas such as dance and karate, but for the moment we are starting out with the tumbling classes,” Schutz said. “I don’t have a background in dance, but we hope to be able to offer it in the near future.” Greene Elite also offers a boys only class. “While I teach the smaller kids in the co-ed classes, my nephew teaches the older boys so they can have a male instructor and take away some of the frilliness of it,” Schutz said. “He is 17, from Jerseyville and has a background in teaching gymnastics, much like myself, and is currently taking classes, as well.” The response to the grand opening can be described as nothing short of phenomenal. “The response has been great and we are almost at full rosters in all of the classes,” Schutz said. “I am either going to have to take more days to be open or

double on classes and teach two at a time to accommodate everyone.” Greene Elite is open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3 to 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Saturday, Schutz is offering a specialized class for cheerleaders and other athletes. “This class is a little bit different because instead of doing the full gymnastics, with the bars and beams and vaulting, this class focuses just on the tumbling,” she said. “It’s perfect for the cheerleaders or prospective cheerleaders who might not have had a class in a while and want to hone up their tumbling skills.” Parents have the option of dropping their child off for classes or waiting for them in the lobby. “Our lobby opens into the gym so any parents that want to monitor their child’s progress are welcome to stay and watch,” Schutz said. “That is totally up to them, however.” Schutz couldn’t be more pleased with how things are starting out. “I just want to say how awesome everyone in our community has been towards us in this venture,” she said. “We have basically relied on word of mouth up to this point and we have had a terrific response and a lot of compliments, especially about how we really need this in our area.

Hamel Chiropractic expanding in Carrollton By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press In addition to opening a satellite office in Calhoun County, Hamel Chiropractic in Carrollton is also expanding services at its current location and adding additional space. “We are going to be expanding our facility again in the very near future to the side on the left,” Justin Hamel said. “There is space there that is not being utilized, so we hope to begin construction on that within the next couple of months.” Hamel opened his new offices on the west side of the square in March of this year after spending about 18 months gutting the building and performing a total remodel. In addition to his offices, the building also contains Alton Physical Therapy and a state of the art gym facility. Still, all that space proved to not be enough for all the services he wanted to offer.

“When Alton Physical Therapy decided they wanted to be a part of what was going on in our facility and rent space, it kind of changed our plans,” Justin Hamel said. “The space they occupy now was originally dedicated specifically for yoga classes that my wife teaches.” Hamel’s wife, Clara, is Director of Operations at the facility coordinating the programs offered as well as being the liason for the Hardin office which will have its grand opening on Nov. 10. “Clara is a big help around here,” Hamel said. “She is a licensed clinical social worker and had her own private practice in counseling but shut it down when I started getting so busy here. She also helps with clinical and is phenomenal with nutrition.” Clara Hamel is a certified yoga instructor having completed the 200 hour certification course. “My original certification was in Vinyasa yoga, but I just completed another training last year in Hatha yoga,” she said. “So, I will be offering those two

different kinds of yoga and perhaps more in the future.” Both Hatha and Vinyasa yoga work to increase flexibility and strength, improve breathing and quiet the mind. Each form of yoga aims to create fitness of the body and mind, though the way to these goals differs. “Vinyasa yoga is a fast-paced series of postures that focuses on the flow between movements rather than individual poses,” Clara Hamel said. “Hatha yoga, however, is focused on holding each pose through several breaths. Because Hatha yoga’s pace is slow and gentle, it is an ideal starting place for people who are new to yoga. ” Though the building had already been remodeled, the addition of Alton Physical Therapy taking up the space designated for yoga forced Hamel to knock out a wall to create more space. “Even that space, however, proved to be too small, and it took away some of our valuable gym space,” Justin Hamel said. “Knocking out that wall opened up

more space for equipment and kind of helped the flow, so we ended up just putting the yoga program on hold knowing that we would soon have this additional space.” The additional space will be utilized for more than just yoga classes, however. “Our goal for this new space is to be able to hold group fitness and maybe even some fitness classes,” Hamel said. “Maybe even some aimed toward senior citizens and specialty classes such as classes such as on spinal stenosis rehabilitation and other topics.” The additional space will also allow for an area for high school and middle school athlete training. “In Hardin, they have the Crunch Gym that runs a lot of youth programs,” Hamel said. “They have a place in Jerseyville as well, but Greene County doesn’t have a facility that provides those programs to the younger athletes so this is going to be great for this area, giving athletes the opportunity that athletes in other counties already has.”

Alice Ford, reporter. Specials: the Hurt girls sang for us. Announcements: Basket dinner after morning worship service today to welcome our new Pastor, Bro. Isaac King and family. There will not be Wednesday Bible study until further notice. John 3: 1-21. Bro. Isaac brought a message on verses 1 and 2. He will continue with the rest of the chapter

next Sunday. Nicodemus was a ruler of the Jews. He was in charge of knowing and enforcing the laws. He was a Pharisee, a ruler and a Jew. A chosen man of God. We live in a world where we have so many privileges. Life is not always like we want, but we have so much and still we find ourselves searching. A lot of people spend a lot of time on why Nicodemus came to Jesus by night.

Everywhere Jesus went a lot of people surrounded Him, so maybe Nicodemus wanted to be able to get to Him. Nicodemus came to Jesus. We come to church for different reasons. The timing is not always perfect but, thank God, He is always there when we need Him. Come and be with us at Hillview. You are always welcome. You can meet our new Pastor and wish him well.

From the desk of Pastor David (217473-1892). Even with turning the clocks back one hour and the rain showers, we enjoyed a great group of worshipers this Sunday morning. Our church was invited to take part in a craft show this past Saturday at the attic next to the Pathway meeting room in Jacksonville. Some of our people furnish baked goods, soup and pulled pork sandwiches for sale, as a fundraiser for our church. Please to say we were blessed by the response. There were many in attendance throughout the day and we enjoyed visiting with and meeting new people. We are in the planning stages of our annual Thanksgiving Dinner. More thoughts on that next week.

Our text this morning was from 1 Corinthians the 13th chapter, verses 1-13. In this chapter alone, the word love is used a total of nine times. Love is important. Popular culture tells “love is a many splendored thing”; “all you need is love”; “love makes the world go around.” Verse 13 of this chapter is probably the most widely quoted passage in the world on the subject of love. Jesus demonstrated his love for us by dying on the cross for our sins, making possible our forgiveness and restoring us to fellowship with God our Father. Everything we do or don’t do; face or don’t face, is touched by Christ’s continuing love because God, who is love, created us in his image (Genesis 1:7)

“let us make man in our image.” The image of God is love and all that is moral and good. In the growth of a Christian believer, one of the keys to our spiritual growth is believing in God’s love, even when we cannot see it. Our prayer requests are as follows: Robert is recovering from a stroke, Margie, Peggy, Nancy, Keith, Ken, Vera (hand), Alex, Dorothy, Ray, Patty, Tim (friend of Ray), Ava’s son and daughter Sherry, Janet (Debbie’s former son-in-law. We invite you to join us each Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for worship service and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening for Bible study.

Give thanks for good health by giving blood or platelets Walkerville Baptist Church news

The American Red Cross urges people to share their good health this holiday season by donating blood or platelets for patients in need. A decline in donations occurs from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day when donors are busy with holiday activities and travel. However, medical treatments and emergencies that require blood don’t stop for the holidays. The Red Cross is thanking those who carve out time to give Nov. 21-24 with a long-sleeved T-shirt, while supplies last. Patients like 6-year-old Ava King will continue to need transfusions critical to their care this holiday season. Ava has Diamond-Blackfan anemia, which impacts her body’s ability to produce enough red blood cells. “We are so thankful for blood donors, because Ava relies on blood transfusions every month to stay alive and thrive,” Ava’s mother, Tina King said. “It’s truly a gift!” By giving blood or platelets, donors may give patients more time – and more holidays

– with loved ones. Make an appointment to donate blood or platelets by downloading the free American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800733-2767). Another way to help keep the blood supply strong this winter is to host a Red Cross blood drive in December, January or February. To learn more about hosting a blood drive and to sign up, visit RedCrossBlood.org/HostADrive.

“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.” —Proverbs 3:27 NIV

On

uman beings know how to help each other. We rise to the occasion after natural disasters, for instance, and demonstrate that we are at our best when our fellow humans need us most. But why can’t we do this all the time? What keeps us from reaching out and helping others in the mundane give and take of our everyday lives? Or why do we sometimes fail to rise to the occasion in certain crises, such as helping refugees from war-torn regions. The fact that we sometimes help and other times look away or just plain refuse to help is perhaps an indictment of our moral sentiments, the feelings of empathy and sympathy which move us to help. Sometimes our heartstrings are pulled and we rise to the occasion and other times we fail to do so. Social Psychology offers some clues to this puzzle. It turns out that what is referred to as bystander apathy (not helping when you see someone in need) can be overcome by 1) noticing that someone needs help; 2) interpreting the situation as one where you could be helpful; 3) taking responsibility for helping; 4) developing a plan (or deciding what should be done); and 5) implementing the plan. It’s not terribly complicated. Most of us could be doing more to help our sisters and brothers in need. – Christopher Simon

There is more to landscape design than meatballs and mulch By CHRIS ENROTH U of I Extension “The meatball meter is off the charts!� That statement made me chuckle as I sat in a crowd listening to Michael Dirr a few years ago. This leading plantsman known worldwide for his work with trees and shrubs was lamenting on the tragedy of shearing plants into “meatballs�. Often when you see these ‘meatballs’ in the landscape, they sit atop a sea of mulch. If the mulch is dyed red, then that just adds more to the visual that our yards look like giant plates of spaghetti. Meatballs and mulch may be desirable to many, but I cannot buy into this type of yard. I garden like I cook, which could best be described as an unhinged chef. Fortunately, the meal often turns out pretty good. Though keep in mind, I cook what I like to eat. The same goes for my landscape. In my yard, I have plants (and some weeds) that persist due to my fascination with one or more parts of their lifecycle. It could be their flowers, seed, foliage, forage for wildlife, fall color and other excuses I tell my wife so she doesn’t pull them up. An observer would view my yard and see a deranged gardener. I see a balance between cultivation and nature. My kids love the yard. Little is sacred in the cacophony of plants and pots. They are allowed to roam free, shovel in hand, to dig and create whatever their imagination holds. Can their toiling become an eyesore? Certainly! Can it be fixed? So far!

While I may have painted a dire picture of a landscape in desperate need of help, there is order and qualities that help to hold everything together. The shape of the landscape beds and lawn are very geometric. A half circle forms the lawn space. The bed lines are strong, meaning they aren’t wavy which is seen as excessive and weak. Taller plant materials flank my backyard framing the view out to the nearby woodland. Pathways and plant material extend the lines of the house into the landscape, tying together the built and natural areas into one cohesive space. Groupings of plant material repeat in the landscape beds. Creating a dynamic rhythm as the eye crosses the breadth of the landscape. Meanwhile, colorful containers accentuate a few spots out in the yard. Shrubs are pruned by hand to remove the older growth and maintain the plant’s natural shape. I don’t prune to control size. Admittedly, there is a lot of wood mulch in my yard, but the goal is to have little to no need for it in the future. Our entire backyard was lawn, and we converted over half of that into landscaping. The mulch helps to keep the weeds at bay and protect the soil while the plants become established and cover the ground. Maybe you’re a meatball and mulch gardener. I suggest you pick a spot in the yard and try a different approach that involves less shearing, less mulch and more plants. Let’s call that stir-fry gardening. I really shouldn’t write on an empty stomach.

The basics of raising pigs Many people subscribe to the notion that “everything is better with bacon.� Imagine being able to control the quality and flavor of pork products, and knowing just what went into producing delicious bacon? In an era of growing uncertainty about commercially produced food, many agriculturally inclined people are raising livestock right on their properties, and small-scale pig farms can be a successful venture. Despite pigs’ reputation as dirty animals, the animal resource PetHelpful indicates they are actually one of the cleanest farm animals. Pigs tend to wallow in mud only if they do not have proper shade and a clean, steady water supply to regulate their body temperature. Furthermore, giving pigs plenty of space to roam will enable them to keep dry, clean and cool. Pens should be large enough so pigs can sleep and eat on one end and use the other end for soiling. Pigs also are intelligent animals that will adapt to routine. This means it may be easier to care for pigs than some other farm animals. Even though pigs can grow to be quite large, they do not need to live on an expansive farm. Many pigs can live quite well on an acre if their pen and foraging areas are rotated periodically. Data from the past 50 years shows that today’s pig farms use less land and other resources to produce one pound of pork, according to the National Pork Board. Therefore, raising pigs can be a sustainable undertaking. According to Mother Earth News, when selecting pig breeds for a pig farm startup, these are popular as lean-meat producers and

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.

Agriculture and the economy Many people rely on the agriculture industry for their foods, but think little of the impact that agriculture has on the larger economy. However, data indicates that agriculture can serve a significant role in the process of solidifying the economy of a country, particularly developing nations. Agriculture also can contribute to the economic prosperity of advanced countries. IPP Media points out that the economic history of many developed countries indicates that agricultural pros-

shouldn’t be hard to find: Yorkshire, DurocJersey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Poland-China, Chester White and Tamworth. Choose sows (females) or barrows (castrated males) for the best-tasting meat. Also, keep in mind that pigs are social animals, and even though the average family will do just fine with one pig’s worth of meat, pigs do better if raised in pairs or more. Pigs need a varied diet to thrive. Diets should include grain, milk, fruits, vegetables, and greens from pasture. Experts suggest novices ask a veterinarian or another pig farmer about feeding. A family garden or bartering with other families nearby for food materials can keep feeding costs minimal. Many pigs can be butchered by the age of six or seven months. After pigs reach that age, they begin to grow quite large and become a much larger investment of time and money. Pig farming can be a worthwhile venture. More in-depth information on raising pigs is available at http://porkgateway.org/resource/ introduction-to-raising-pigs/.

perity contributed heavily to their economic advancement. When the basic food supply is strong, the national economy can be strong as well. Particularly in the early days of the United States, farming held a crucial place in establishing the American economy and culture, and still shapes the country today. Many states find that farming and other agricultural pursuits contribute much to the local and national economy. For example, new research from the University of Wiscon-

sin-Madison and University of Wisconsin-Extention show that agriculture is a powerful economic force in Wisconsin. Agricultural businesses help generate more than $83 billion in activity and have created more than 400,000 jobs in that state. The public should not disregard how strong a factor agriculture can be in establishing a strong economic environment. Safeguarding agricultural jobs and the agricultural industry is crucial to economic stability.
