Greene County Economic Development Group (GCEDG) announced on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at the gazebo on the Carrollton Courthouse lawn that they have received a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to promote and foster economic development in Greene County. The GCEDG, will use the $75,000 to develop and maintain a program known as “Developing Rural Entrepreneurial Actions to Mold Enterprises and Resources”, otherwise known as DREAMER. “With this initiative, both existing and future entrepreneurs and small business owners will have access to local resources which enhance and enable business development and business expansion,” Jim Mager, Managing Director of GCEDG said. “This overriding initiative will be accomplished through the assistance from the USDA in the form of a Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) for $75,000.”

Colleen Kallahan, State Director of the USDA, said the program is aptly named. “What DREAMER does is make dreams come true,” Kallahan said. “It’s an old saying that we stand tall because we stand on the shoulders of those who come before us, and you are those shoulders. This $75,000 serves as the seed money for a revolving loan fund, which will mean others will stand on your shoulders so that they can grow taller in their businesses and create anywhere from 15 to 20 new jobs.” Kallahan said the USDA, as a lender with loans and grants, is specifically designed to take care of the needs and futures of small rural communities in order to make entrepreneurial possibilities a reality. Individuals interested in starting a business will be given extensive training and information on what is involved in owning and operating a business through a partnership with SIU-E “This is geared toward people who are thinking about starting a business,” Mager said. “We want them to understand what starting a business involves so if they do go

into business, they have a good base of knowledge to manage this business.” The training program will consist of eight sessions that will cover a comprehensive array of subjects ranging from setting up the legal structure, financing, marketing, production, accounting and business planning. “After the completion of the sessions, the goal is for the potential entrepreneur to have a well-written business plan,” Mager said. With a business plan in place, the entrepreneur would then seek financing from a bank of their choice. Once they have the commitment of a bank to participate in the venture, the GCEDG could then also provide additional loan financing up to $10,000. “As with all financial structuring, the entrepreneur would be expected to bring a reasonable level of equity to the project,” Mager said. “While it is not strictly defined, the guideline for the financial structure would be for the entrepreneur to have 10 percent equity. The GCEDG would loan 50 percent and the bank would loan 40 percent.”

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press A full afternoon and evening of celebration and entertainment is scheduled to take place in Roodhouse on Dec. 13 as the Kansas City Southern Holiday Express Train once again makes a stop in Roodhouse, followed by the second annual Christmas in the Park. In its 13th annual run, the train will stop in 20 communities in six states on 24 dates with Roodhouse being the only stop in Illinois. At each stop, visitors can board the train, visit with Santa and his elves and tour the inside of three cars of the festive six car train. Led by KCS Southern Belle business train, the Holiday Express train includes a smiling tank car, “Rudy,” a flatcar carrying Santa’s sleigh, reindeer and a miniature village, a ginger bread boxcar, a newly remodeled elves’ workshop, the reindeer stable and a little red caboose. Each car is dressed in lights. In addition to the festive aspect of the train, there is also a charitable component. In the past 12 years the project has raised almost $1.2 million to purchase gift cards which are donated to the Salvation Army at each scheduled stop. These gift cards are used to purchase clothing and other necessities for children in the local community. Roodhouse Police Chief Kyle Robison is coordinating both events this year and said Roodhouse is blessed to have been chosen as one of the stops this year. “KCS recognizes the need for com-

munity involvement even in smaller communities, and Roodhouse is a centralized location for many communities to commute to our location,” Robison said. “I also believe that KCS understands that Roodhouse was formed around the railroad and the event allows our town to hold onto that heritage.” Sometimes the smaller community – the greater the need. “I think KCS employees recognized many years ago that the Christmas Train was the only thing that some children have and realized that some children went without basic essentials,” Robison said. “Since then, KCS has made an effort to stop in smaller cities located in their travel path.” Robison said Roodhouse is writing a new chapter in its history and is making an effort to show people the importance of community involvement. “The idea behind having Christmas in the Park on the same day is simple – people from all over will bring their kids to see the Holiday Express,” Robison said. “Christmas in the Park allows people to visit the train and continue their experience a short distance away at the park. I would like to see this event become a tradition and traditions are built on a strong foundation. The Holiday Express, Christmas in the Park, Ralph Riley residence and the Lights by the Lake are a tradition that people will remember.” Christmas in the Park, like the Holiday Express, is free to the public and will feature free chili, hot chocolate, musical entertainment, vendors for the adults to visit and games for the children to play. There will also

be a live nativity scene and to surprise the kids, an opportunity when Santa is away for them to take a picture on his sleigh which will feature a real reindeer. “Holidays seem to be for the retail world,” Robison said. “We simply want to keep the cost at a price everyone can afford – free family entertainment.” Robison is encouraging everyone in the community both business owners and residents to take part. “I would really like to encourage business owners and churches around the square to decorate and help add to the event, and residents to decorate their homes to get into the holiday spirit. Donations are always accepted as this event is only possible due to donations from the citizens. “Donations in the form of clear Christmas lights and long extension cords, etc., would be a tremendous help,” Robison said. “I plan on the decoration process to take place in the first few weeks of November.” Robison said they are still looking to add vendors to the event. To add your name to the list simply call the police department and reserve your spot for free. Anyone who has any questions can contact Robison at the police department at (217) 589-4352. Robison said they are still looking for a few volunteers to serve as elves on the train with costumes provided. Simply call city hall. They are also looking for donations of candy which will be handed out on the Holiday Express.

Participants of the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) will receive less money each month due to an expiring federal act which had boosted the money offered by the program. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the stimulus which was enacted by U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2009, expired at the end of October, causing a decrease in benefits for participants of SNAP, which is the state’s food stamp program, formerly known as LINK. Januari Smith, spokesperson for Illinois Department of Human Services, said it is unlikely a similar financial boost to the program will occur based on the current congressional climate in Washington. “They’re talking about even cutting even further, so I would doubt we would get this increase back,” Smith said. Funding for the program is set at a federal level, Smith said, and states are tasked with administering SNAP in their areas. The spokeswoman said the state is not responsible for the reduction in benefits which can range from $11 per month for a household of one to $81 per month for a household of 10 people. Though the reduction may look small on paper, Smith said the program is designed to issue, on average, $5 each day per household member for food, meaning the $11 lost by an individual could be two days worth of

supplemental income for food. Though the program is meant to offer supplemental funds for food purchases, Smith said many families rely strongly on the service. “It will definitely impact those families that depend on this program,” Smith said, noting how much a family receives is based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, income and family size. “Obviously, this is a supplement, as well, but [for] a lot of families, this is all they have.” According to information provided on the Department of Human Services website, the Jersey County office has around 6,300 people using the food stamp service on a regular basis in approximately 2,900 households. Of that total, around 1,100 people receive no public assistance other than SNAP. The Jersey office serves the counties of Calhoun, Greene and Jersey. From the same information source, the Adams County office says 13,500 people receive SNAP benefits. Those people are in around 6,500 households, and 2,400 receive only SNAP benefits and no other public assistance. The Adams office serves the counties of Adams, Pike and Scott. In 2010, there were approximately 4,000 households which received the benefits for approximately 8,500 people, according to the Adams County numbers, and around 2,200 people used the service in 2010 in around 950 households, according to the Jersey County figures.

Chicago schools receive more money than rest of state By SCOTT REEDER & JACKSON ADAMS Illinois News Network Chicago-area public schools are collecting a disproportionate amount of state educational aid at the expense of students studying in downstate schools. That conclusion was reached during October in two separate and independent investigations conducted by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Policy Institute.   “People should be concerned because it is an issue of fairness and equity,” said state Sen. Pam Altoff, R-McHenry. “What this is telling me is that children with developmental disabilities and special needs in Chicago are receiving more money than my students in suburban Chicagoland or downstate Illinois.” Back in 1995, Illinois lawmakers passed legislation that guaranteed Chicago Public Schools, or CPS, a certain percentage of state funds from block grants funding programs such as special education. In 1995, the percentage was based on the proportion of Illinois students attending CPS. However, CPS enrollment has dropped during the last 18 years, while the proportion of funding it receives has remained at the 1995 level, according to Mary Fergus, a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education. Consequently, Chicago students are getting more state funding per pupil than their counterparts elsewhere in the state. According to the Illinois Policy Institute’s report, Chicago received $811 per pupil in property tax subsidies while downstate districts received an average of $25 per student. In the area of poverty grant funds, Chicago received $2,513 per impoverished student – downstate only $1,343.   C

For some, this is nonsensical. “What are they trying to say—kids from Chicago with disabilities from Chicago need more than those from the suburbs or downstate? This is not about poverty or socioeconomic conditions. This is about an individual disability,” Altoff said. The funding gap can be seen in overall school district spending per student. According to the Illinois State Board of Education’s report, school districts outside of Chicago spent an average of $7,541 per pupil in 2012 while Chicago spent $10,410. Altoff said most lawmakers are unaware of the disparity in funding between Chicago schools and the rest of the state. “Most legislators are focused on general state aid to schools and local property taxes,” she said. “Few people are getting down into the weeds and looking at the whole picture – including block grants.” One of the few people who has studied the issue is state Sen. David Luechtefeld, R-Okawville. “Right now, it looks like schools are going to face some cuts, so it’s important that we take a close look at this issue and see who may be getting more than their fair share ,” he said.  “After we have looked at these numbers we may come up some recommendations. It important that students all across the state receive adequate funding.” State Rep. Ken Dunkin, D-Chicago, said he is not particularly bothered that more money is spent per student in Chicago than elsewhere in the state because Chicagoans pay much of the state’s taxes. “We want to shift the way we fund education, and that should be based solely off the income tax distribution in the state,” he said. “Right now (See,SCHOOLS, A2)

Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge generated $159,600 in economic benefit for the Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Madison, St. Charles and St. Louis counties area in Fiscal Year 2011, according to a new economic analysis. The benefit – which includes retail sales, taxes and job income – came from visitor spending tied to recreation activities on the refuge. The figures come from a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service study, called Banking on Nature, which used 92 of the more than 550 national wildlife refuges for its economic sampling. Wildlife refuges pumped $2.4 billion into the economy and supported more than 35,000 privatesector jobs in Fiscal Year 2011. Refuges contributed an average $4.87 in total economic output for every $1 appropriated and produced nearly $793 million in job income for local communities. The refuges are part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the Service. “Our National Wildlife Refuge System is the

world’s greatest network of lands dedicated to wildlife conservation but is also an important contributor to our economy, attracting more than 46 million visitors from around the world who support local restaurants, hotels, and other businesses,” said Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell. “Every dollar we invest in our refuge system and other public lands generates huge dividends for our country.” Some recreation activities on Two Rivers Refuge are hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing and photography. Researchers examined visitor spending in four areas - food, lodging, transportation and other expenses (such as guide fees, land-use fees and equipment rental). Local economies were defined as those within 50 miles of each of the 92 refuges studied.

Fleming retires from Boeing Bill Fleming, 71, of Carrollton retired Oct. 31 from Boeing. He began his career in 1961 at McDonnell Douglas, now Beoing. He worked in development and production support of other weapon programs, such as F4 Phantom, F-15 Eagle, Tomahawk Cruise Missile, AGM-130, JDAM, and CALCM, as well as anti-armor missiles Brimstone, Hellfire, and Dragon. Prior to the Boeing/McDonnell Douglas merger, Fleming worked at the McDonnell Astronautics Co. and the Electronics Co. on the Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab space programs.

Recently I was watching on TV a class reunion of 25 years. At the end they sang ‘Til We Meet Again”; I got up from my chair and played this on my piano. Music has a way of stirring up my memories. Mom and dad dancing to “Some Sunday Morning”; Mr. and Mrs. Leon Middleton when I hear “Fascination”; “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, Kate and Howard Powell; Karen Lynn - “Blue Suede Shoes”; Martin and Evelyn Roth, Bill and Dorothy Stringer and Louis and Wanda Meng - “Around The World”; Dusty and I - “Always”; Clifton and Shirley - “Claire dis Lune”. On our special occasions, Mrs. Mamie Moulton played this on our organ at the Presbyterian Church in White Hall. Dusty and I had elderly neighbors, Roy and Esther Scharfenberg Baker. In the fall of the year we would find turnips, sweet potatoes and pumpkin from them outside our kitchen door. Come winter Dusty made one of his fantastic angel food cakes; I filled a roaster with beef, potatoes and carrots. When it was done, I telephoned the Bakers. Mr. Roy said, “Come over and use the side door.” Mr. Roy was wearing his best shirt, tie and trousers when he opened the door. I know that it was Monday as I always baked beef roast on that day. Mrs. Esther was sitting in a rocker with her best bib and tucker and jewelry upon her. She laughed and said, “Somebody will come and we must be ready.” We visited about past events. He opened the parlor door and pushed an organ into the sitting room and said, “Will you play “Wedding Bells” for us?” I did and he and Mrs. Esther waltzed and waltzed. My little things meant a lot to them. Some people plant millet in flower pots for the song birds to eat. My sister Melba had two big ones cut that she lost due to the drought. She and Vickie (her daughter) had the stumps up higher, purchased big barrel shaped pots, planted flowers and used the stumps for pedestals. Millet came up. I believe I remember Carol Ford’s family and their neighbor Mrs. Hobs on planting this on fence rows. Recently I talked with my cousin Will Jennings. He was pleased that his and Mary’s North Baptist Church congregation are building a new home for their minister and family on West Walnut Street. Will asked me if I remembered Hall’s Hatchery on Bluff Street where the Senior Citizen Apartments are located. I told him that I did. Woodriff “Gig” and Henrietta Mellor Hall and two daughters, Hazel and Eileen lived in a new home. He built the hatch-

ery at the back. They also hatched turkeys and guineas. The residue was dumped at the back and hauled away for disposal. The sun would hatch a few of the residue. Do you “get’ the picture? Will’s brother Frank (d) had been invited to spend the day with Jim Nash (d). they rescued some chicks and guineas. Since they weren’t first class the Halls couldn’t sell, so I believe Mrs. Flossie Nash and Aunt Nancy Jennings had gifts. Will Jennings that knot holes in their maple trees where guineas lived. I told him that I knew that they didn’t need a watch dog or a doorbell. I remember Marie Johnson Adam’s squawking two blocks from us! Over the river and thru the woods to grandmother’s house we go. Mother had surgery the first part of November when I was a junior in GCHS (Dr. Chamnes Hospital in Carlinville). Mother had a nurse who was so loving and kind to us girls. The nurse, Nell Robinson had a 14-yearold son we learned years later. Who became my sister’s husband - Dick Robinson. Dad bought Mel’s first Jr. high heel Spectator pumps and my high heels at Brown’s in Carlinville. I can still see them. They were brown and rust leather and suede. Dad liked hats! He said, “How do you girls like these rust and brown dressy hats?” They had a grosgrain ribbon that you can pull up under your chin to keep the wind from blowing away. He dressed us up to see mother. To bring her home, he bought a black coat with a mink collar and lavender silk dress at Frank C. Smith’s Clothing Store. It was Sunday. Dad dressed a baking hen for the oven and went for mother. Mel and I peeled potatoes, opened green beans, set the table in the dining room. You probably could smell dad’s coffee all over the neighborhood. Mel found violets blooming under the spirea. She had made cookie dough from scratch the day before; we had been cooking for years every time mother had an attack - it was appendix and gall bladder. We called this our Thanksgiving meal. He and I washed on Thanksgiving and Mel ironed. The people who ‘fogged in” for turkey were out of luck. My mother enjoyed baseball. At Piney School - noon hour and recess. Some of the players were: Caroline Jennings, Helen Jennings, Annie Erthal, Ruth Overbey, Fleta Short, Mildred Overbey, Allie Jennings, Edwin Hebner, Carl Morrison, Garret Hendricks, Roy Baker, Wilfred Overbey, Maurice Jennings, George Jennings, Charles Hays and Glenn

Skaggs when they attended high school at Fayette. Mother (40 years) listened to ball games on radio while she cooked, served and ironed. She grabbed the Sports Page each a.m. She knew the players by name and recognized their photos. Dad bought them a big cabinet TV from Spec Wilton’s Shop uptown Greenfield. I remember that Bill Meng and J.R. Shields Jr. put the antenna on the roof and hooked the TV to the electricity. Mrs. Wilton was a cousin of Bill Meng and his sister Marie Meng Griffin. Spec built a sound system that he took to our park, basketball games and picnics for a fee. His wife kept the books and answered the phone. During the summer evenings they hooked up four TV sets faced the showcase window and turned to ballgames. Men and women stood outside and watched. After a couple of months the sidewalk was clear people had purchased. As I was working days we had no TV. We watched some nights with mother and dad. When Clifton came along we invested in a beautiful ivory cabinet RCA from Charles Finley who was in the Frank C. Smith Building. ‘Til next time! Midnight showing Thursday night!

Pastor John brought the message “Job – A loving parent”, Job 1:1-5. We have all heard the main theme of the book of Job. But I want to start out with the history of the story: Job lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless and upright and did the right things in every situation. He sacrificed to cover over his and the sins of his family, even before the sacrificial system was written by Moses. He feared God and shunned evil and was a godly man who put his faith into action. Job was very rich and owned thousands of livestock and had many servants.  He was the greatest among all his people. Job had seven sons and three daughters. He looked at his family as a blessing from God; but he also had rules to follow. He had his children help around the house and he worked long hours, so he could keep an eye on them and be well informed. When I was a kid, I could invite friends over to my house, but I couldn’t go to theirs; that way my parents knew what we were doing. Job was like that; he

desired to have his children walk with the Lord. He taught his kids about be righteous, purified them and sacrificed on their behalf for their sins. He prayed for his kids. It is probably fair to say that Job’s children were his life. He was rich and powerful, but all that is talked about here is Job’s children. Job loved his children so much. He loved them more than his wealth. Not everyone had good parents like Job. And Job was no perfect parent, but he did love his children like his Father God loved him. That should be the model for our parenting, how God loves us the way that we are. John 14:21, “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” Job loved his children enough to give them a party whenever they asked. That he was not afraid to spend his wealth on his children, because they were that precious to him. Just like we are precious to our Heavenly Father and He does not withhold His precious things from us either. Our heavenly father has sacrificed for us an offering to cover up our hidden and “maybe” sins in Jesus Christ. John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” You cannot do things to make God love you anymore or less. God does not love you for what you do; He loves you for who you are. And that is the kind of parent that Job strove to be. He loved his children no matter what. To be the example of how they should live their lives and how they should love God by imitating him. It is the greatest gift we parents can give to our children, the gift of following our example as we follow Christ. Because of Job’s love for his children; because of how much they meant to him; because of how important they were to him; how he put them above everything else in his life, outside of God; because of this devotion and yearning to see his children do well and grow to be righteous; because of all this, this is why what happens next to Job is so devastating. His children were his life. And Satan is going to take them and God is going to allow it. How would we react if we were Job?

Bro. Ron Heard, Pastor It has been a changeable week, but we ended up with over two inches of rain, which we needed. Still a lot of corn to shell. But we had real frost and every week and flower is gone. Indian Summer will follow we hope. Pastor Ron was on a trip to Kansas and Bro. Bob Carruthers filled in. Thank you Bro. Bob for the fine message and the music. We had a very small group, but the spirit still prevailed. The time change must have upset some of them. We always miss those who aren’t there. Thanks to the gentleman who trimmed up the bushes so pretty. They look so beautiful. Our sympathy to the Brame family. We also want to thank Mr. Schofield for getting rid of the bugs. Nice job and to Mrs. Sprong who on a short notice cleaned them up. What a mess. Our prayer list is Ray and Patty Baldes, the Garner

Every one is invited. We have so much to be thankful for that one day will not do it justice. Thank you to those who left the centerpiece at church. It is beautiful. Thanks to Betty and Verna for the kitchen decorations. Nice job! We all know it is hard to sell a product you do not use and a religion you do not live.

Everyone smiles in the same language. Come to Walkerville and you will always receive a smile and Jesus loves you and so do we. See you in church Sunday.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer can be unplanned and spontaneous, and sometimes the spontaneous prayer that flows out of an abundance of spirit is exactly the right prayer for the moment. But, more often than not, it is best to have a prayer routine. People who take their spirituality seriously usually have set times when they pray. Morning and Evening prayer are perhaps the most common times, but many also add a midday prayer. Praying shortly after arising in the morning and shortly before going to bed “bookends” our day with the sacred. It also helps to have a prayer book or some systematic way to pray. If you have never done this, invest in a prayer book and try it for a month or two. Most prayer regimens are fairly simple and need not be very time-consuming. Five or ten minutes each morning and evening will be time well-spent. So, perhaps you could check out your local Christian bookstore or ask your Pastor for guidance with this. You will be amazed at how regular prayer will improve the quality of your life.

Dr. T.K. Parthasarathy, audiologist, will offer free hearing screenings.

FSB rolling out Greenfield Tiger debit cards ISP By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Local school districts can use all the help they can get and Farmer’s State Bank just announced its plan to help Greenfield schools. The bank rolled out the Greenfield High School Tigers fundraising debit card program, which will allow card holders to not only show their school spirit but also help raise money for the school at the same time. Each time the debit card is used .25 percent of the purchase made as a credit is donated back to the school. Customers can be a financial supporter of the Greenfield Tigers at no cost to them with this card. The amount the school receives depends wholly on how much card holders use their debit card to make purchases. The same program is currently underway in North Greene with the Spartan Card. “We have been cutting checks to the North Greene School for

quite some time from the use of the Spartan card and we are hoping to share that wealth with the Greenfield community,” Jackie Goode, sales and customer service development officer in White Hall, said. Wayne Hays, who is in the marketing department in Pittsfield, said the program was a good fit for both parties involved. “Being a community bank, the schools are very important to us,” Hays said. “We wanted to be able to give back to the community and at the same time find something a lot of people in the community could benefit from.” Hays said most people have a checking account and a majority of those checking account holders also use a debit card. “We were thinking about how we could do something with the debit card to make it a win win for everyone,” Hays said. “With this rewards program, people using the Greenfield Tigers debit card will

be helping their own community as well.” Residents from surrounding communities can also open a checking account at the Greenfield branch of Farmer’s State Bank and all the purchases they make with the card will also go toward the Greenfield schools. “We know there are grandparents, aunts and uncles and other relatives that might not live around here, but they still want to help out their school and community,” Goode said. “The only thing they have to do is open an account with us and through the rewards program each purchase made a portion will be donated to the school.” Hays said the school may use the funds however they see fit and that it wasn’t just a fundraiser for the sports program. To order a card, visit farmersstate.com. For questions visit the White Hall office or call (217) 2852200.

ISP conducting Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols

ISP announce Special Traffic Enforcement Patrols

Greenfield Library Board news

Illinois State Police (ISP) District 18 Commander, Captain Parsons announced that District 18 Troopers will conduct Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols (OREP) during the month of November. OREP allows the ISP to target an area with saturation patrols that focus on traffic violations and related compliance with safety belt and child safety seat laws. Safety belt enforcement zones will also be set up to ensure the driver and passengers are buckled up. Illinois law requires all vehicle passengers (front and back) to be buckled up! Safety belts are one of the most effective safety devices in vehicles today, estimated to save over 12,000 lives each year. Over half of vehicle occupants killed in a traffic crash were not properly buckled up. The objective of this program is to increase compliance of occupant restraint laws through education, child seat inspections, and enforcement. Greater awareness, acceptance, and use of occupant protection equipment will save many lives. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.

Illinois State Police District 18 Commander, Captain Parsons, had announced that officers will conduct Special Traffic Enforcement Patrols (STEP) during November. District 18 Troopers will concentrate on speeding, failure to use occupant restraints, and other driving offenses as part of their enforcement efforts. The STEP program involves a combination of increased enforcement and public information designed to raise public awareness and compliance to all traffic laws. Speeding is a contributing factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes nationwide. In Illinois, speed-related crashes account for over 40 percent of all traffic fatalities. Safety Belt Enforcement Zones may also be used during the STEP program. Troopers will enforce the primary safety belt law to ensure drivers and all of their passengers are buckled up. Every hour someone dies in America simply because they are not wearing their safety belt. Statistics show that half of all people killed in traffic crashes are not properly buckled up. You can save your life by driving safely and simply buckling up. This project is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.

The Greenfield Library Board held their monthly meeting on Monday, Oct. 21 at the library. The Board reviewed the results of their large fall fundraiser, the Chilli Cook-Off and Fall Food Festival, and looked at ways they could make it even better for next year. In 2014, the event will be held on Oct. 4. Pat Theivagt, Library Director, announced to the Board that the Library will be raffling off a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2  7.0 tablet including Sentry earbuds and Stylus for their November fundraiser. Raffle tickets will be $10 each. Tickets may be purchased at the Greenfield Public Library at all times. Tickets will also be sold at the following locations from 9 a.m. -12 noon: Nov. 2 - United Community Bank; Nov. 9 - Meehans Grocery Store; Nov. 16 - United Community Bank; and Nov. 23 - Greenfield Public Library due to the Simply Fair fundraiser. The raffle drawing will be held after the Lion’s Club Christmas Tree Lightning Ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 30, when Santa arrives on the fire truck. The next Greenfield Library Board meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m., at the library.  The public is invited to attend the meeting.  Reported by Debbie J. Rollins

Alcohol and drug impairment is a significant factor in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. These nighttime patrols are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road and ensuring all vehicle occupants are buckled up. This project is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.

Christmas in

Greene County

Christmas in Carrollton this weekend By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Carrollton Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the Christmas in Carrollton kickoff will be held this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8-9 with events taking place all over town. The Chamber held its first Christmas in Carrollton in 2003 and it was such a success it has become a tradition during the second weekend in November. Carrollton Chamber of Commerce Vice-President Bernie Faul said it is the Chamber’s way of encouraging people to shop their local merchants this holiday season. “The whole idea behind Christmas in Carrollton is to get people to come to Carrollton to do their Christmas shopping early which brings revenue into the city’s merchants, ” Faul said. “Our merchants have all kinds of stuff to offer as holiday gifts, and this

gives them an opportunity to preview those items before anyone else.” It is also the first opportunity for the kids to visit Santa and his reindeer this season. Santa in his sleigh along with a real reindeer will be set up in front of Dream Day Decorating on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Chamber will be giving away six sets of $50 Chamber Bucks which can be used at participating businesses. Upon making their first stop at a local merchant, one will receive a punch card. Take this card and visit all the participating merchants and get the card punched at each one. At the last stop, one can put the card in a box and be entered to win the $50 in Chamber Bucks. This drawing will be held at the Christmas Parade Dec. 6 at 6:30 p.m. Merchants participating this year include Pharmacy Plus, Buck’s Crossing, 108 Resale Shop, Nims Jewelry, Mainstreet Tire, Flower

Mill and Dream Day Decorating, Christmas Market at the First Baptist Church on Fifth Street and Boyd Hospital Holiday Bazaar. Participating stores will hold indoor sales and many will have refreshments. The Chamber will be giving away free popcorn and soda on Saturday from 11 a.m. until it is all gone. To get in the festive spirit, businesses around town are taking one of the 22 flower barrels located around the square and decorating them with a holiday theme. “I started the barrel decorating three years ago and each year I try to give different businesses the opportunity to participate, “Faul said. “Some of them really enjoy it and they want their barrel year after year. New to the decorating this year is the Wagon Wheel and Twisted Taco. We also have the Sons of the American Legion of Eldred and a Relay for Life team sponsoring a barrel.”

Holly and mistletoe are symbols How to avoid post-holiday of Christmas season shopping crowds

"Oh, by gosh, by golly it's time for mistletoe and holly. Tasty pheasants, Christmas presents, countrysides covered in snow." As exemplified by this holiday hit by Henry Sanicola, Frank Sinatra and Dok Stanford, holly and mistletoe are an integral part of holiday imagery and tradition. Holly is used to adorn a home in green and red finery alongside evergreen boughs and wreaths. In addition, it has become customary to hang a bouquet of mistletoe under which people are encouraged to share a holiday kiss. While these elements of celebrations are now incorporated into many of the secular and religious components of Christmas, they have very different origins. Holly Holly has been used since the days of the early Pagans as a decoration for midwinter festivities, when it was brought into homes to keep evil spirits away. The ancient Romans also believed that holly prickles drove away evil spirits, and it held a place of honor at December festivals dedicated to the god Saturn. To avoid persecution during the Roman pagan Saturnalia festival, early Christians would participate in the tradition of hanging evil-repelling holly on their homes to appear like the masses. Eventually as the number of Christians grew, the tradition became less of a pagan one and more associated with Christians and Christmas. Some people have inferred that holly and its prickly edges is symbolic of the crown of thorns Jesus wore at his crucifix-

ion, with the red berries representing blood. Mistletoe Mistletoe was once held sacred by the Norse, Celtic Druids and North American Indians. It is actually a parasitic plant that grows on a wide range of host trees. Heavy infestation can dwarf the growth and kill these trees. In cultures across pre-Christian Europe, mistletoe was seen as a representation of divine male essence (and thus romance, fertility and vitality). The plant also was thought to be a symbol of peace, and anyone standing below it should receive tokens of affection. When enemies met beneath mistletoe, they had to lay down their weapons and observe a truce until the next day. This is how the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe likely began, and why a ball of mistletoe is now hung in homes during Christmas, a season of peace and affection. Homeowners who hang mistletoe and holly around their homes during the holiday season should be mindful of pets and youngsters around the plants. Mistletoe and holly are considered to be moderately to severely toxic, and ingesting the leaves could be dangerous. Therefore, keep these plants away from curious hands. Mistletoe is commonly hung up high, which should make it less problematic, but holly should be hung high as well. Now largely associated with Christmas celebrations, holly and mistletoe were once part of pagan rituals and ancient superstitions.

Come December 26th, many people are tired of shopping. Yet, there are deals to be had on everything from clothing to electronics on the day after Christmas, when savvy shoppers can take advantage of slashed prices to stock up on a few more things. But for millions of people the day after Christmas is about more than just returning gifts or finding great deals. For the people who live in countries that are or were British commonwealth nations, Boxing Day is a cause for celebration, and it just so happens to fall on December 26th. Boxing Day was traditionally a day when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their employers and superiors. However, it is now primarily known as a shopping holiday similar to Black Friday. On Boxing Day, shoppers take advantage of deep discounts and dramatic sales, and many retailers open their stores very early. Shoppers arrive in droves to shop the sales, and such crowds can be overwhelming. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to make Boxing Day shopping less taxing this year. n Shop when stores tend to be less busy. Ask store managers and/or employees when business tends to be at its slowest. Even though shopping on a holiday might still be busy, there may be a slow hour or two when you can avoid crowds. Shopping those times, whether early in the morning or late at night, can make the day less stressful.

n Shop online. There are never crowds online, which allows you to browse from the comforts of home. One disadvantage to online shopping is that you sometimes cannot get an accurate idea of the size of a garment or the feel of the material. However, when shopping for toys, electronics or home products, you may not need to touch and feel the items. n Create a list and stick to it. Before shopping, create a list of what you want to buy and avoid straying from that list once your shopping trip begins. You will spend considerably less time wandering aimlessly in a store if you make a list before shopping. n Wait another day or two. Crowds will not be as big if you wait a few days after Boxing Day to find deals. If you can postpone your trip to the store, you may still benefit from sales. Waiting even longer may enable you to buy seasonal items on clearance as stores make room for spring merchandise. n Shop all year long. Veteran shoppers tend to purchase items when they are most affordable, even if that means getting some holiday shopping done in the summer. Spreading purchases out over the entire year allows shoppers to manage their budgets and avoid hefty bills come January. Shopping for gifts throughout the year also frees up time during the holiday season, when time spent at the mall or shopping online can be better spent celebrating with family and friends.

Carrollton CUSD receives $10,000 grant to renovate greenhouse

Corn carting

Robert Lyons/Campbell Publications

Jim Manns pulls a grain cart full of corn to a waiting tractor trailer Monday morning in Jerseyville. Though some farmers have already taken

soybeans from the fields, many fields still have corn waiting to be combined.

District named winner in America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education   Carrollton’s horticulture and plant science students will soon have the opportunity to apply what they learn in real life situations. Thanks to the support of local farmers and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, Carrollton CUSD received a $10,000 grant to renovate the district’s greenhouse. The greenhouse will function as a lab for horticulture and plant science classes. “Valuable learning takes place when students can apply what they learn to real life situations. There is no limit to where we can go with this once we have the greenhouse built,” said Superintendent Dr. Kerry Cox. America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which can then compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math and/ or science education. More than 1,150 nominated school districts submitted applications. The Monsanto Fund will invest $2.3 million through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education grants this year. “The Monsanto Fund grant has helped us highlight the connections between math, science, and agriculture for our students. Without the support from the grant and our local farmers, we would not be able to meet our goals and objectives,” said

Superintendent Dr. Cox. Carrollton CUSD faculty, local farmers and Monsanto representatives participated in a check presentation ceremony to celebrate the district’s success. The presentation took place prior to the homecoming football game on Friday, Oct. 11, at the Carrollton High School Football Stadium.       Nominated school districts across the country submitted grant applications in the spring. During the summer, a panel of educators from ineligible districts reviewed and evaluated applications based on merit, need and community involvement. The strongest submissions were then sent to the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Advisory Council. The Advisory Council, comprised of farmer-leaders with an interest in agriculture and education, selected the winning grant applications from this pool of finalists. “A record number of America’s farmers stepped up this year to improve math and science education in farming communities across the country,” said Deborah Patterson, Monsanto Fund president. “By nominating their local school districts to compete for this grant opportunity, these farmers demonstrated their dedication to growing the next generation. The Monsanto Fund is committed to strengthening rural America and this program is an exciting way to honor that commitment.”

ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATION CLASS 1A FOOTBALL POSTSEASON

Carrollton beats Bunnies to reach second round

SAM ELLIOTT Greene Prairie Press After a back-and-forth first 12 minutes, the Carrollton Hawks broke open a scoreless game with three touchdowns on as many possessions in the second quarter to spark themselves to a 32-0 win against Fisher in the first round of the IHSA Class 1A playoffs Saturday at Carrollton High School. The Hawks (9-1) were intercepted and forced to punt from midfield to end their first two offensive drives, but a special teams play by Luke Palan set the tone for the second quarter. Palan took a Bunnies punt 57 yards to the Fisher 4-yard line and ran in the touchdown the next play just less than two minutes into the second quarter. "That was a huge punt return," Carrollton head coach Nick Flowers said. Palan's next play was big, too. After the Hawks' defense forced a three-and-out and the offense was backed up at their own 14, quarterback Jacob Smith threw a short 1-yard pass out to Ethan Frye in the right flat. But Frye didn't keep the ball long, instead tossing a perfectly timed pitch to a streaking Palan — who went 85 yards down the right sideline and gave Carrollton a 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter. Palan recovered a Fisher fumble to end the Bunnies' next possession

early and the Hawks struck for a third touchdown just less than two minutes before halftime. Smith threw a 38-yard scoring strike to Cole Brannan on fourth-and-15 to make it a 20-0 game. "We don't reinvent the wheel when it comes to a big play," Flowers said. "We call our concepts and found that window." On Carrollton's first two possessions of the second half, Smith tossed touchdown passes to Cody Leonard and Palan. The Hawks quarterback finished 11-of20 passing for 231 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. On defense, he added one fumble recovery and one touchdown. Fisher (6-4) averaged more than 285 rushing yards per game during the regular season, but was limited to 156 by Carrollton's defense. "We knew they were going to be a tough team to stop on the ground, so we loaded the box up," Flowers said. "Once we stopped them and figured out what they were doing to us defensively, we really got things rolling." The No. 5 seed Hawks will have to make a 170-mile trip to Casey for their second-round matchup with No. 4 Casey-Westfield. The Warriors are 10-0 this season, winning by an average of nearly 33 points per game. "It's going to be an exciting trip," Flowers said. "We know one thing: we'll have our boys ready. We know they have rich tradition over there, but we're up for the challenge." selliott@campbellpublications.net

North Greene High School junior Connor Vincent makes a leaping touchdown catch to put the Spartans on the scoreboard in their Class 1A first-round playoff game against Tri-Valley Saturday in Downs. The Vikings, 10-0 and a postseason No. 1 seed, showed their strength in winning a 56-14 decision to advance. Nathan Randall's 29-yard touchdown pass to Vincent in the second quarter and Kolten Heberling's 7-yard run in the fourth accounted for the Spartans' scoring. North Greene — in the playoffs for just the first time since 2005 — finishes the 2013 season 5-5.

Lady Hawks edged in regional final The Carrollton High School volleyball team put up a strong fight early, but Calhoun came back to win the Hardin Class 1A Regional in a 25-20, 25-17 decision Thursday at Calhoun High School. The Lady Hawks got ahead early in the opening game, using a 6-0 run that included one kill and one block by Rachel Williams plus some Calhoun mistakes to get ahead 11-5 for the game's largest lead. But the top-seeded Lady Warriors slowly fought back, taking the lead in the first game for good at 17-16. Calhoun won the second game despite losing senior setter Maddie Baalman to a knee injury. Williams and Madison Struble each put down six kills to lead Carrollton. Williams finished with a match-high four blocks and Struble added eight digs. Jessica Lake distributed six assists to lead the Lady Hawks while Madison Mountain and McKenzie Ruyle each tallied a match-best nine digs on defense. Calhoun (29-3-1) went on to beat Triopia Tuesday and will play Liberty Thursday for the New Berlin Class 1A Sectional championship. Carrollton closes its season finishing 13-18.

Argenta-Oreana defenders wrap up Tigers senior running back Dakota Coffey Saturday in Greenfield. The Bombers edged Greenfield-Northwestern 37-20 in the first round of the Class 1A playoffs, ending the Tigers' season with a 7-3 record.

Behind 325 rushing yards, the Argenta-Oreana Bombers pounded their way to a 37-20 win against Greenfield-Northwestern Saturday in Greenfield. The Tigers — making thier first postseason appearance since 2009 — took an early lead, but couldn't keep pace with the Bombers down the stretch. Senior quarterback Isaac Masters led the Greenfield-NW offense with 85 yards rushing and two touchdowns, including a 78-yard

scoring scamper in the opening quarter. He finished 9-of-17 passing for 138 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Trailing 14-8, the Tigers drew even on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Masters to Austin Plogger with just less than two and a half minutes to play in the second quarter — but Argenta-Oreana put together a quick scoring drive to take a 21-14 lead at the half. Masters' second touchdown run got Greenfield-NW within one point

of the Bombers midway through the third quarter, but that was as close the Tigers got the rest of the way. Argenta-Oreana quarterback Gage Eller went on to finish with 119 rushing yards with two touchdowns and threw for another score while teammate Austin Wenskunas scored twice on the ground. Greenfield-NW, runner-up in the Western Illinois Valley Conference South this season, finishes its 2013 campaign 7-3.
