NEWS

North Greene School District is in a unique position this year in that it is the only district in the county not required to hold a Truth In Taxation hearing. A Truth in Taxation is a public hearing which must be held before the district approves the following year’s tax levy if the aggregate total of the increase is more than 105 percent of the 2012 tax extension. The Board of Education approved the following amounts for next year’s levy at its monthly Nov. 20 meeting: Education, $1,159,200; Operations and Maintenance, $315,000; Transportation, $126,000; IMRF, $200,000; Tort, $325,000; Social Security, $180,000; Fire Prevention, $31,500; Computer Technology,

$31,500; Special Ed, $25,200. The aggregate total comes to $2,424,900. “This figure is less than 105 percent of the 2012 tax extension,” Superintendent Les Stevens said. “Therefore, we are not required to hold a Truth In Taxation hearing.” The Building and Grounds Committee submitted its recommendation for prioritizing projects identified in the 10-year Health Life Safety Survey. These included repairs to the 1957 gym roof, repairs to boys and girls restroom facilities at North Greene Elementary and the JuniorSenior High along with numerous doors that need to be repaired or replaced. NG does fall in line with the other district in the county in that it approved application for a School Maintenance Grant in addition to an Energy Efficiency Grant. These funds

Ten-month-old Danilynn Stepp of White Hall gets her first close up look at St . Nick and seems to be OK with the bearded gift giver . She visited Santa at the 9th Annual Hometown Christmas held in White Hall Saturday .

The upcoming March 18 primary election in Greene County stood to be the first election since the mid ‘80s that an incumbent for sheriff did not have an opponent. Filing deadline for getting on the ballot ended at 4 p.m. Monday. Sheriff Rob McMillen would have been the first sheriff since Frances Neubauer in the mid ‘80s to ever be unchallenged in an election. That nearly three decade streak continued with the last minute filing of Luke Lamb for the seat of sheriff at 3:35 p.m. Monday afternoon, just 25 minutes before the filing deadline. McMillen is seeking his second term as sheriff on the Democratic ticket. Lamb, who is currently on the Greene County Board, is running on the Republican ticket. Democrat Deborah Banghart is running unopposed for county clerk and Republican Kirby Ballard is also unchallenged again this year. Six people are on the ballot for county board. Joyce A. Clark of rural Carrollton is running with fellow incumbent Mike Kiger on the Democratic ticket. Clark was just elected to her second term as a Bluffdale Township Trustee and Kiger is seeking his second term on the board. Four people are vying for three spots on the Republican side. Incumbents Joe Nord and Keith Alan Graham are joined by Jeff Sexton, who made an unsuccessful bid to get on the board at the last election, and Mark Boston. Graham is seeking his second term on the board and Nord has been on the board for more than 30 years.

The White Hall Lions Club is selling afghans featuring the churches of White Hall this holiday season . Donna Waltrip and Lions Club President ron gilmore display the afghan along with several other members of the Lions Club .

By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press The White Hall Lions Club has come up with a unique money-making idea, and one which will ensure the churches of the area live on for generations to come They are selling afghans which feature White Hall churches at a cost of $60 each, the proceeds of which will be used for their many charitable endeavors throughout the community. “We started talking about selling these afghans about two years ago,” Lions Club President Ron Gilmore said. “Finally, we got everything worked out and put together just in time for the Christmas holiday as we figure they would make great gifts.” The afghan features replicas of All Saints Catholic Church, Calvary Baptist

Church, First Christian Church, Christ United Methodist Church, Pentecostal Church, Gentle Shepherd Church, New Life Church, First Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church. The five-by-seven-foot afghan also features the Lions Club emblem in the lower right hand corner. They can be seen on display at People’s Bank and Larson’s. They can be purchased at Price’s Country Gardens or Goben’s Auto Parts or by contacting any Lion’s Club member. They were also on display at White Hall’s Hometown Christmas held in Whiteside Park this past Saturday. “We sold quite a few of them Saturday and people showed a lot of interest,” Gilmore said. “I think a lot of people who might not have wanted to go into the shops (See, white hall, A2)

John and edith Huston, owners of Whistlestop in roodhouse, stand in front of the deli and bakery which offers a wide variety of meats, cheeses and soon to be fresh baked goods . The Hustons moved to the roodhouse area from Tennessee in July . The store opened for business on Nov . 22 .

Whistlestop opens in Roodhouse By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press There has been a flurry of activity at the old Reco Envelope Factory on Rt. 67 this summer as the Huston Family has been remodeling the building to open a bulk food grocery store. Whistlestop Market opened its doors for business on Nov. 20 offering a wide variety of items from packaged bulk noodles to candies, to jellies to fresh meats and cheeses along with fresh baked bread. The store is owned by John and Edith Huston who are Mennonites who relocated to the Roodhouse area from Tennessee after purchasing the old Reco building in March. C

“We had to do quite a bit of remodeling before we were able to open as a grocery store,” John Huston said. “The entire front area used to be office space so we had to knock out all the walls, raise the ceilings and pretty much just went through and renovated it to make it work for us.” Cooling freezers were installed in the back wall and the area that contained all of the machinery for making the envelopes is being converted into a deli and bakery which not only offers fresh meats and cheeses, but will soon offer freshly baked bread. “Right now, we are getting our baked goods out of another bakery like this one which we will continue to use until we get this one up (See, whistlestop, A2)

There is also a wide variety of spices and baking supplies along with jams and fresh baked goods. Huston said he moved his family, which includes his wife and eight children ranging in age from 19 to 15 months, from their farm in Tennessee up to Roodhouse so his wife could be closer to her parents. “My wife’s parents live here and they have been getting up in age and been needing assistance from time to time, and we were coming up here all the time bringing our daughters up to see after them for a couple of weeks at a time,” Huston said. “We thought we might as well move up here and see after them and do something up here to make a living for ourselves. We had a store like this in Paris, Tenn., and decided to try it here.” The stores are quite common in states with large Mennonite communities such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin. In fact, these four states are where most of their products come from. “We don’t sell anything from any foreign countries,” Huston said. “All of our supplies come from places right

Gilmore said the money raised from the sale will help them purchase eyeglasses and hearing aids for the needy, and also help with next year’s Lion’s Club Parade. “We are currently making plans for the 2014 parade,” Gilmore said. “Entertainment is being lined up for July 3-5 and tickets should be available

here in the United States. Nothing comes from foreign countries that we are aware of.” Instead of opening up boxes and placing pre-packaged items on the shelf, the Whistlestop receives its food items in bulk and bags them into small bags for the customers. “There are a few items we buy already packaged, but the majority of it is in bulk,” Huston said. “Our jams come already labeled with our label on it.” The store holds a lot more than just food. There is also a book section, sewing section including a variety of material, cooking utensils, gift items, etc. Huston said he named the market the Whistlestop after the history of the town and the predominance of the railroad. Huston’s three oldest daughters help run the store along with his wife and mother-in-law. The other five Huston children are still in school. They reside on a farm west of Barrow and he said he loves the area. “I am enjoying it here,” he said. “It’s a good area and the people are nice. It has been a good experience for us so far. Our desire is to be of service to the community and that God be glorified.” Whistlestop is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Huston did say hours may change depending on the requests from the customers, but for now those are the hours of operation.

Just recently, the Lions Club received a donation from the White Hall Drag-O-Way Reunion and a $1,000 donation from the White Hall VFW. Gilmore said it was voted to have the food stand for the Drag-O-Way Reunion during Greene County Days next year, also.

The recent $1,000 donation made to the North Greene Food Pantry by the White Hall VFW could not have come at a better time as more and more families are coming each week since the food pantry located in its new location on the corner of Main and Bridgeport streets in White Hall. Formerly located in the Roodhouse Fire Department building, the food pantry was given the building it is now in and donations helped renovate it making it much more visible. This, however, according to Director Gale Custer, is not the only reason an influx of families have started coming to the food pantry. “The food stamp program was cut by 30 percent and we are seeing a lot of full-time jobs cut back to only parttime now,” he said. “Some people who used to have full-time jobs now only have part-time jobs which makes it tough on them.” The food pantry distributes food to individuals and families who meet the income criteria once a month. Since the food pantry opened up in White Hall, 40 new families have been added to the list of those receiving food. Open each Tuesday, a recent Tuesday saw 69 families visit, with eight new families in that single week. The month of October was the largest month ever with 222 families receiving food from the food pantry. Each Monday, volunteers take a large truck and trailer to Springfield and bring them back full of food from the West Central Food Bank. On Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. the doors open and the first line of business is to say a prayer. “We want people to know that this food pantry is sponsored and supported by all of the churches in the North Greene area,” Custer said. “Not only do we get money from the churches to get the food, but the volunteers who help give it out are also from the churches. Not just one church but a combination of all of them.”

Richard Caskey, who also operates the Mobile Food Pantry scheduled for Dec. 10 at Rt. 106 Gallery, also volunteers at the food pantry and says it is a very rewarding experience. “You can’t leave here after doing a days work without feeling good about it,” he said. The food pantry also receives a lot of local support, from the local lumber yard donating the drywall for the inside of the building to the local stores donating excess meat and bread on their shelves. “We usually get meat from the food bank, but for two weeks in a row we didn’t get any,” Custer said. “Lucky for us, the Kroger store up here gave us some meat to hand out. Kroger helps us immensely and we can’t say enough good about them because they give us our milk at cost along with other odds and ends. Dollar General also helps us out by giving us bread and we can’t say enough good things about them, too. We are really fortunate to have so much local participation for such a worthy cause.” The VFW donation couldn’t have come at a better time. “From the Halloween drive we collected pretty good, plus we happened to be at the food pantry to get two 4x4 totes full of canned goods,” Custer said. “There are some weeks, however, when we don’t get anything, and I think this coming week is one of those weeks. So, yes, this is going to come in very handy.” Custer stressed that none of the money donated for food has been used to renovate the building. “People have either donated their time to help us do the repairs ourselves or they have said, ‘Here is $20 to help get the building finished,’” Custer said. “We enclosed the front of the building because the wind whipped right through there on our workers and they are all older, so we didn’t want them getting sick from it. Well, someone came up and donated two new doors for us to use. It’s taken us a long time but we are happy and proud of it.”

NG Food Pantry gets $1,000 donation

Since the cheerleaders are selffunded, renting a bus was out the question, but paying for gas in a donated bus was a blessing. Part of being involved in sports is having that special bonding experience with teammates, and that bus ride certainly provided a unique experience. The parents and coaches are also very appreciative for the use of the bus. A special thank you goes out to Sue Holmes for driving the girls to and from the game. The Tri-County Color Guard is indeed a special group of people who are still out there supporting their communities. So we send a big thank you to the Tri-County Color Guard from the Carrollton Hawk Cheerleaders, their parents, and their coaches. Thank you for your service and your continued support of our communities.

The White Hall VFW made a $1,000 donation to the NG Area Food Pantry recently to help get through the holiday season. Left to right are: Bill Dirksmeyer of the Lions Club, Richard Caskey of the Food Pantry, Carl May, of the Lions Club and Gale Custer of the Food Pantry.

TO THE EDITOR: The Carrollton Hawk cheerleaders would like to take this opportunity to let our community know about a special group of people, The Tri-County Color Guard. Not only do they represent us as America’s heroes, but they continue to support our local communities. Recently, the cheerleaders found themselves in a predicament. The football team made it into the second round of the playoffs against CaseyWestfield. A charter bus was ordered for the football team, but it did not have enough room for the cheerleaders to ride to the game. Buses are expensive and to use a bus from the school would cost around $500. At that point the cheer coaches and the cheer parents had to find rides for the girls. That is when Sue Holmes, a grandmother to one of the cheerleaders, called the Tri-County Color Guard to see if the girls could use their bus. They said they were happy to let the cheerleaders use the bus if they would pay for the gas.

By MARY LOVE HAMMON

When I looked out of my north window this a.m. I was surprised to see “The Marshmallow World” had covered the ground. At the Mirror Montage Shoppe, Melissa told me that Ida Belle Edwards is getting used to her bigger automobile. “Tootie” Bailey Webb is in a nursing home for therapy. Melissa’s mother and stepfather had the holiday dinner at their home on Mulberry Street. Lilas McCollom Lohr of Boonesville, Ind. called her sister Linda Pohlman. Lilas son, Tom Lottr had knee surgery. Art and Leanora Weible and sons of Oak Grove, Ill. spent Thanksgiving holidays with Linda Pohlman. When Lori flew from her Texas home to St. Louis airport her uncle Gary McCollom acted as chauffer both ways. Michael pops into his mother, Linda’s place frequently. The late George and Rosemary Medaris Rives’ lovely home is for sale. What a tragedy hit the Philippines. Dr. Mapue (Greenfield’s Boyd Clinic) has family there. My former caretaker, Helen Settles Meneley’s daughter-in-law Maria Settles, RN at Boyd Hospital has parents and family who reside in the Philippines; as there was such an awful hurricane - I am concerned. At the beauty shop some said, “Hi Mary!” It was Kathy Varble. She said that her mother Helen Meneley is happy and well. Our Bible reading today was St. Luke 1. Michael the Arch Angel appeared to the Virgin Mary telling her that she was to have a child. She asked him, “How can this be?” I have never been with a man.” The Holy Spirit descended upon her and Mary ran miles to tell her cousin Elizabeth who was old and barren; her husband was stricken dumb (Zacharius). He remained in the temple. When Mary gave “The Tidings of Great Joy” to Elizabeth (who was three months pregnant - her baby leapt with joy within her. Mary remained three months before returning home. When Elizabeth’s baby was born he was to be named Zaccheus. It had bee revealed to him by the same busy angel to name his son John. This Zaccheus wrote and his speech was restored. Both Jesus and John waxed pure and strong. John baptized people by the thousands before God told him to baptize Jesus. In the last day Michael the Arch Angel will come from the east blowing a trumpet with Jesus close behind. Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Though our sins be as scarlet, they will be white as snow. Our attic party. We had no basement. Our attic was finished, having a pull down ladder. I found it convenient to store out-of-season clothing in the closet, plus many other things.

Long ago Mel and Dick Robinson and Dale and I were “shooting the breeze” when Bob and Fernanda Morrow joined us. Bob said, “Oh goodie! Cherry pie and strong iced tea.” Even though the pie was hot we all dug into it. Not knowing that we had a new pull down ladder, Bob remembered when we used a 6 foot step ladder, crawled onto the sturdy cabinet and hoisted ourselves into the attic. He and Dale stood and watched while Clifton and I did this. We all climbed up and perched around on Mel’s hickory chair, my doll bed, suitcases and college trunk filled with my college books - art, history, psychology and a few text books from 1900 and 1930. Not long ago I gave these to Clifton. He enjoyed the Christmas Carol, Under The Spreading Chestnut Tree, etc. These had been purchased at O.T. Brennon’s Pharmacy in Hettick when it was a thriving town. Clifton had a collection of Avon automobiles (that held cologne) all lined up. Some time ago, I sent these home with him . It is time to bring the Christmas tree down and take Pete the Scarecrow up to his place. We had fun! My neighbor girl Josie Garner is a member of the Northwestern-Greenfield High School Band. During the Christmas Holidays they have been invited to perform at a “Bowl Game” in Georgia. Josie is the daughter of Jared and Val Garner. Greenfield resident Pam Hall cared for her mom as long as possible. When her mom needed more care, a nursing home was selected. Mom had a birthday. Pam took her out to eat. They were joined by family members. The grandson of my neighbors the last Stanley and Esther Dawson had been searching for work to no avail. He did a wonderful job cleaning my gutters and hand raking and bagging the oak and maple leaves in my big yard. Today I received a lengthy Thanksgiving letter from Will Conner the son of the late Charles and Pat Barton Conner. Pat and her sister Betty Barton England (d) were friends and neighbors on the east side of Greenfield. When they came back to Greenfield in latter years they stayed at Tish Leach’s Bed and Breakfast. Betty and I were together during our 50th class reunion from GCHS and our 60th class reunion from GCHS. Yesterday I telephoned Elizabeth Reed Gwillum who lives in Carlinville. I had a fine time listening to her summer trips - a cruise from Cape Cod; her daughter flew from Houston - they gallivanted; a 3200 mile auto trip out west. ‘Til next time!

obamacare subsidies vary in area counties By Scott ReedeR and JackSon adamS Illinois News Network Insurance premiums for people in their 20s are skyrocketing under Obamacare, leaving serious concerns about the future viability of the entire system. A recently released Heritage Foundation report found that that the cost of purchasing a health insurance policy for an Illinois 27-year-old has more than doubled since the advent of Obamacare. And recruiting young people to enroll is a major goal of the Obama administration, because insurers need healthy customers to offset the cost of caring for those with costly medical needs. A carrot-and-stick approach is taken to get uninsured people to join in the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchanges. Subsidies are given to some people who enroll, and fines are levied against those who choose not to buy insurance. The fines amount to either $95 per year or 1 percent of a person’s annual income, whichever is greater. The cutoff level for subsidies is based not only on a person’s income, but also their age and where they live. For example, unmarried 20-yearolds in Jersey County are eligible for subsidized insurance if they earn less than $23,766 a year. The cut-off amount for an unmarried 20-year-old in Pike County is higher -- $24,268. But unmarried 60-year-olds living in either county are eligible for subsidized insurance if they earn less than $45,960.

people between 19 and 30 have at least a $500 incentive not to buy health insurance under Obamacare and about one-third have a $1,000 incentive not to purchase it,” Conover said. That $1,000 “incentive” represents how much the insurance would cost if they opted to buy it rather than pay the fine, he said.

>>>For example, unmarried 20-year-olds in Jersey county are eligible for subsidized insurance if they earn less than $23,766 a year. the cut-off amount for an unmarried 20-year-old in Pike county is higher -$24,268. “You could argue that they are getting insurance in exchange for paying that money,” Conover said. “But for many young people that is not much of an incentive. The policies generally have high deductibles and people in these age ranges generally are in good health.” Conover predicted that few young people will sign up for Obamacare which will result in risk pools having disproportionate numbers of older and less healthy people. As a result, insurance companies would have to raise their premiums further, he said. “We call it the ‘death spiral.’ The premiums go up so more young people drop out and pay the fine, which results in the premiums going up even more and more people dropping out,” Hogberg said. This already has happened in states that have overregulated the individual health insurance market,

Cutoff incomes for subsidies, by individual age and county Calhoun County Greene County Jersey County Pike County Scott County

Age 20 $23,766 $23,766 $23,766 $24,268 $24,268

Age 30 $31,628 $31,628 $31,628 $32,366 $32,366

“A lot of young people are going to choose to not buy insurance because they are going to figure out that it is cheaper to pay the fine and go without,” said David Hogberg, a health care policy analyst for the National Center for Public Policy Research. This is hardly a small number of people, said Chris Conover, a researcher at Duke University’s School for Health Policy and Inequality. “About one-half of the uninsured

your taxable income, whichever is more?” Families are doing the same calculations. Donna Moore, who lives in Springfield, has three adult children 25 or younger – all of whom are insured either through an employer, the military or Moore’s own policy. She said cost/benefit calculations

Age 40 $33,654 $33,654 $33,654 $34,436 $34,436

Age 50 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960

Age 60 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960 $45,960

Conover said. “Other than out of some sense of civic duty, it’s hard to see why a young person would purchase insurance, especially if they are currently uninsured,” Hogberg said. “If they were to get some subsidy, obviously it might drive the price of a … plan down enough that it might be worth their time. But if they are not going to get a subsidy, why would you do that, and pay at least $100 a month, maybe more, when you could pay a fine of either $95 dollars or 1% of

on insurance are something her family and many others are having to do now. “We don’t like having to pay for things that we don’t use, and we think it is really ridiculous,” Moore said. “But what can we do? … If they don’t pay for the insurance then they’ll have to pay the penalty. So if I’m advising somebody not to sign up for it, I’m putting them in the position of having to pay the penalty.” Josh Archambault, a senior fellow with the Foundation for Government Accountability, anticipates states such as Illinois or the federal government may try to encourage more young people to enroll by increasing the penalty in future years. Lawmakers who support the law want people to focus on its benefits for young people. “We’re hearing so much about what’s wrong that we’re not getting the information out about what’s right,” said state Rep. Monique Davis, D-Chicago. “You can stay on your parent’s insurance until you’re 26 years old. Say you’re a young woman, your insurance is required to give you a mammogram and other procedures that a young woman is required to have. Now if I were a young woman I wouldn’t want to keep the plan I had, I’d want to have those new things included.” Obamacare proponents also point out that having insurance encourages young people to take more steps to avoid health problems. “We need to educate people to go to physicians when they’re healthy, not the emergency room when they are sick,” said state Rep. Sara Feigenholtz, D-Chicago. “Insurance is the way to encourage them to do that.” Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act may end up having the reverse effect of pricing people out of the insurance market altogether.

Sheriff’s Dept. asking White Hall VFW for help with Christmas makes two donations of Police Surprises By carmen ensinger Greene Prairie Press

By carmen ensinger Greene Prairie Press The Greene County Sheriff’s Office is starting a new program to benefit the children in the Carrollton, Eldred and Kane areas. “This program is to provide underprivileged children who would normally not receive Christmas presents gifts to unwrap on Christmas morning,” Project Coordinator Melissa Scoggins said. “We have received a list from the Carrollton School District that contains approximately 50 children who could use extra assistance this Christmas.” The children range in age from pre-k through 8th grade and the gifts will be delivered to these children on

Members of the White Hall VFW presented the White Hall Lions Club with a $1,000 donation last week, in addition to a $1,000 donation to the North Greene Food Pantry. “We know that the Lions Club does a lot of good work in the community and we know how many people the food pantry helps,” VFW Quartermaster Carl May said. “We just wanted to show that we, as an organization, are still active in our community.” May said the money for the donations came from the sale of the VFW building several years ago. “We decided we would cash out one of our CD’s so we could

Dec. 23. “We are asking for help from the local businesses to assist us in this endeavor,” Scoggins said. “We are requesting any amount of donation that you are able to send us. With this money we will purchase toys, hats, coats, gloves and other essentials the children might need.” Scoggins said the department would like to receive the donations by Dec. 10 to be able to help them shop for the gifts. Please send any donations to: Greene County Sheriff’s Department, Attn. Christmas of Police Surprises, 403 Seventh St., Carrollton, IL 62016. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by contacting the sheriff’s office at (217) 942-6901.

make some donations and we couldn’t think of a better time than during the holiday season,” May said. “In fact, we are looking at making another donation after our December meeting to the First Responders.” May said they also have plans to put a monument next to the flags in the garden park on Main Street in the near future. Lions Club President Ron Gilmore accepted the donation on behalf of the Lions Club. “This donation is going to come in handy to help those in need and with our Homecoming event next year,” he said. “We use the money we collect to buy eyeglasses and hearing aids for the needy so this is a real blessing to not only us but to all of those we are able to help.”

Santa Dollars available at Farmers State Bank Christmas is a special time of the year with families gathering to celebrate, feasting and giving gifts. We want the gifts to be special. And what’s more special than a gift that is collectible – one you may keep for 20 years or more. That’s exactly what many have done with this gift; - a Santa Dollar. This unique present, ideal as a child’s stocking stuffer, doubles as a gift to a charity. Santa Dollars are real United States currency. These special treasury notes have a Santa seal that covers George Washington. The Santa Dollar seal is removable leaving the crisp, new bill intact. People purchase these unique dollars to give as gifts, knowing in doing so, they are helping others, as some of the proceeds go to charity.

Farmers State Bank is selling Santa Dollars at its Pittsfield, Winchester, White Hall, Hull, and Jerseyville offices. The price is $2.50, which includes a greeting card with the Santa Dollar inside, and one dollar will be donated to charity. The amount raised from the sale of Santa dollars will be matched by the bank dollar for dollar up to $500 for a total maximum donation of $1,000. The donated amount will be split evenly with an equal amount going to a charity in each county where the bank has an office: Pike County Christmas Baskets, part of Pike County’s Unmet Needs Program; Jersey County – Jersey County Food Pantry; Greene County – North Greene Food Pantry; Scott County – Outreach Center.

Carrollton Hometown Pride CeeGeez Restaurant, owned by Greg, Lora and Aaron Settles, has been awarded the Carrollton Lions Club Hometown Pride Award for December. Formerly known as the Carriage House, the restaurant opened in March 2012 after a complete remodel on the inside including the addition of a buffet room and reconfiguring the layout along with changing the entrance. New lighted signage was added this summer. Future plans are for a banquet room to seat at least 75 in the area located next to the restaurant. CeeGeez serves a wide variety of home cooked foods such as hamburgers, salads, wraps, appetizers, etc. Pictured are: Gordon Rahe of the Lions Club, Amy Clendenen, Aaron Settles, Frances Scheffel, Billy Griffith and Joe Montanez of the Lions Club.

ISP emphasize safety during upcoming holiday season Saturation patrols being utilized Captain Parsons, Illinois State Police District 18 Commander, recently announced that District 18 troopers are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday travel period. Captain Parsons expects high traffic volumes on interstates and roads throughout the district during the Thanksgiving holiday. Traditionally, the Thanksgiving holiday marks the beginning of the busy holiday driving period. The National Safety Council (NSC) recently released its estimates of fatalities from traffic crashes for the 2013 Thanksgiving holiday period. The Council estimates 436 traffic fatalities and another 46,600 injuries may occur from motor vehicle collisions during this busy holi-

day. In anticipation, Illinois State Police District 18 troopers will be implementing saturation patrols to enforce the ISP’s Fatal Four mission: Speeding, Seatbelts, DUI and Distracted Driving. Motorists who consume alcohol should consider an alternative means of transportation. A DUI arrest can cost thousands of dollars in attorney fees, court costs, insurance fees, fines, jail time, and a permanent criminal history record. Weather conditions can also be a factor, and Illinois State Police urge motorists and out-of-state visitors to plan ahead, follow the rules of the road, and take the necessary safety precautions during this holiday driving season.

Gerald Day and our service times are 9:30 a.m. Sunday school, followed by 10:30 a.m. morning worship with nursery service available. Everyone is welcome to either or both services. On Sunday, Dec. 1 we had 25 attending Sunday school and 40 attending morning worship. Remember our men and women in uniform and the leaders of our nation in your prayers.

Bro. Ron Heard, Pastor The weather was better, just waiting and charming us for the next weekend, as they are predicting snow or maybe freezing rain. Illinois weather will change just wait. Don’t let it try your patience. We had a smaller group, but a good one. We all enjoyed the message. Matthew 24. Jesus will come like a thief in the night. When you least expect him. So be ready at all time. It could be today or tomorrow. My mother expected him in the night, as she would never let us go to bed dirty, Jesus might come. The question for the week is still “How long did it take to write the Bible? We had two different answers. Just keep looking. It was a long time. Our prayer list is Betty Newman, Melanie Mast, Monica’s friends that are sick, Bonnie Hardwick, Don Hardwick, Patty Baldes, (we still miss you Patty), Ray Baldes, Ricky Snyder, Bobby Hurts, Billy Schulbottum, Debbie Sprong, Garner family. I know we all had a blessed Thanksgiving, It is a wonderful time

Fred Grable, Larry Miner, and Jean Coates. There are no anniversaries or birthdays to report this week. We began our advent season with the lighting of the first advent candle and the devotional "The Prophet" read by Ron and Doris Vestel. We enjoyed Danny McPherson and his sidekick Seth giving us songs and message. Sunday evening 26 of us gathered to put up the Christmas tree and decorate the church and fellowship hall for the upcoming Christmas season. A potluck of soup, sandwiches and desserts was enjoyed by all. That's all for this week. Have a good week and share a smile with everyone you meet.

Penny March as the children went downstairs for church with Sis. Cindy as leader. Message by Bro. Baxter. Luke 1: 13-27. John was planned as the forerunner of Jesus before he was conceived. God sent a child to his parents in their old age. With God all things are possible. We can do nothing by ourselves, but with God helping we can accomplish everything. Angels are chosen by God. God knows where we

are at all times and what we are doing. Jesus came to earth to be tempted as we are tempted, but he did not sin. All of us have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Jesus died in the cross once for all. Sunday evening: We decorated the Christmas Tree with white ornaments and white lights to impart purity. Quite an impressive service. Refreshments in church basement afterward. Please pray for the church, the bereaved, the lost, the sick, those recuperating from surgeries, those in nursing homes and hospitals, traveling mercies, our troops and their families, our country and our leaders, and one another, we pray that people will remember the true meaning of Christmas.

for the family to get together and count their blessings. Everyone around Walkerville was cutting wood this weekend, getting prepared for the coming weekend. I hope they don’t need much of it. Christmas is just around the corner. The young couples are planning a Bible Study, beginning after the New Year. Just think the days will be getting longer in three weeks. We can get Spring Fever then. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it is still a gift. Christmas will be here soon. The greatest gift you will ever receive. Details on the Christmas services will be next week. When God solves your problems, you have faith in his abilities. It may not be tonight or tomorrow or the next day, but everything is going to be OK. God is in control. Put some control in your life and be in church Sunday. We miss you when you are not there and God is sad. Can we not give him just one hour a week? What if Jesus said, “I don’t have time to go the cross?” See you in church Sunday.

Eldred Baptist Church news As reported by Mary Eustace Church services of Dec. 1 . “Let us Walk in the Light of the World” Isaiah 2:5. The lighting of Advent Candle of Hope by Denny & Sherry Vetter. Advent scripture reading of Hope Jeremiah 33:14-21. We open our service today with the church decorated for this Christmas season. We enjoyed “Special Music” by Greg Reif. The exciting part of the morning was the sermon by Don Carpenter. The message was “The Advent of Hope”. As Pastor Don reflects on this message, we understand that these weeks of Advent will cover Hope, Love, Joy and Peace. A path we will travel together to understand the celebration of the birth of Christ.

When you look up Luke 1: 32-33 you will see that there would always be Hope. Advent of Hope is not the past but what is to come. We are all very blessed by Pastor Don’s message of faith. If you would like to visit our church, we have Sunday School Class at 9 a.m. and church services at 10 a.m. We have “Children’s Church” for our youth every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. We serve supper and a lesson on Jesus for all local children. Our church has a dedicated Bible Study Class that meets each Thursday morning at 10 a.m. Our services are always open, please come and join us. You can reach our Interim Pastor Don Carpenter at 618-751-0007 or by email at doncarp@hotmail.com

"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures for evermore." Psalm 16:11

II.

In the Presence of God Brother Lawrence was a seventeenth century Carmelite monk and author of the book "The Practice of the Presence of God." He was fond of saying that we should "walk as in His presence," i.e., that we should strive constantly to be in conversation and communion with God. Brother Lawrence was a simple man who was converted to holiness at the age of eighteen upon seeing the sight of a dry, leafless tree on a snowy midwinter's day. The sight of the tree brought to mind the coming season of Spring and God's providential hand. Brother Lawrence sought out a monastery after this conversion experience where he strove to live continuously in God's presence. He

wasn't a particularly learned man, nor did he perform any great miracles or go on any great crusades, but he devoted himself to sanctifying the ordinary, everyday aspects of life. Indeed, Brother Lawrence worked in the kitchen of the monastery for most of his life and one of his favorite prayers was a prayer you could imagine yourself saying at the kitchen sink: "Lord of all pots and pans and things, make me a saint by getting meals and washing up the plates!" Would we not all live far better lives by walking continuously in God's presence? – Christopher Simon

Carrollton native meets noted author, philanthropist

By CARmEN ENSiNGER Greene Prairie Press There are times in life when chance meetings end up having a profound effect on one’s life. So much so they want to share it with others. Brenda Reif-Ranger of Carrollton is an avid reader and makes it a point to attend book signings by authors whenever possible. On Nov. 11, she and her husband, Don, traveled to the St. Louis Public Library where they attended a lecture and book signing by Howard G. Buffett, the son of billionaire Warren Buffett. Buffet talked on his latest book, “40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World.” Buffett is the chairman and CEO of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. He owns a large farm in Decatur and describes himself as a farmer, businessman, politician, photographer and philanthropist. He has dedicated his life to wildlife conservation and finding solutions to world hunger. Brenda Ranger said she really knew nothing about Howard Buffett or his book prior to going to the lecture and book signing. “My husband and I saw an advertisement in the paper that he was going to be in St. Louis and when we found out who he was and how he was a farmer here in Illinois, we

decided it might be an interesting evening,” she said. “Both him and his son were there and they were both very friendly and nice.” The book chronicles his journey as a philanthropist, a photographer and most importantly a farmer with a deep understanding of what it takes to produce food in difficult conditions. “He applies the lessons he learns to everyone,” Ranger said. “He said that each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our goals. He learned this lesson through his passion for farming. All farmers can expect to have about 40 growing seasons, giving them 40 chances to improve on every harvest. This applies to all of us because we have about 40 productive years to do the best job we can, whatever our passions may be. It’s actually rather profound.” Ranger said that while Buffett has the resources to go into third world countries or underprivileged areas and teach people to farm on a mass scale, there are a lot of ways a normal person can help out. “The one thing they really stress is there are a lot of ways to help out even at a local level if you can’t do anything at the scale they can afford to do,” Ranger said. “There are a lot of ways to help you local area through church and community centers, food pantries, etc. They encourage everyone to do that.”

Ranger was as impressed with the man himself as she was with the message from the book. Ranger asked him where he saw farming going in the next 20 years. “He said it was too bad that farm prices were as high as they were,” she said. “The family farm is being affected by it. Our system of democracy is very much influenced by the family farm mentality. Because family farm prices have gotten so high the family farm is shrinking.” Buffett just purchased several hundred acres near his own farm in Assumption, paying more than $12,000 an acre. “He said they have other resources, so yeah, they can pay that for a farm,” Ranger said. “But the average guy can’t afford to do that. As a result, farming is changing from the family farm to the big corporations. Frankly, he said he would like to see it continue more the old fashioned way, but we live in a democracy and things just keep changing.” Ranger said she wishes everyone could read the book and adopt the same mentality he has. “I think it’s great that they brought it to the attention of everyone that no matter how rich or how poor you are, there are ways you can help out,” she said. “Get involved and do something – you have a limited amount of chances to do something in and with your life.”

Carrollton, Illinois

Lady Spartans second in Waverly Greene County A close four-point loss to the tournament hosts is all that kept the North Greene High School girls basketball team from a championship at the annual Waverly Tournament. The Lady Spartans and Waverly-Franklin-New Berlin each finished with 3-1 records through the round-robin event, but the hosts took the tournament title thanks to winning a 42-38 decision when the teams met Monday, Nov. 25. North Greene — which opened tournament play with a 54-32 win against Springfield Lutheran and a 68-29 victory against Kincaid South Fork Saturday, Nov. 23 — completed its run in Waverly with a dominant 61-36 win against Rushville-Industry Wednesday, Nov. 27. "The girls played real well," head coach Jim Roesch said. "Lutheran was a preseason top-10 team in the state and Waverly and Rushville are both expected to be top teams in their conferences." Lady Spartans sophomore Destyne Powell led all scorers with 20 points against RushvilleIndustry and North Greene

complemented her with a balanced offensive attack. Eight other Lady Spartans scored, led by junior Arika Hull's eight points. Hull and sophomore teammate Makendra Jennings, who chipped in four points against Rushville-Industry, were selected to the Waverly event's all-tournament team. Juniors Tabitha Hawk and Halie Kraushaar added seven and six points, respectively, against Rushville-Industry for North Greene, which led by just a 15-13 margin through the first quarter before pulling away to lead 32-19 at halftime. "I've told the girls — when they play well, they are very fun to watch," Roesch said. "And they've played more good basketball than bad so far." The Lady Spartans (4-2) will get another shot at WaveryFranklin-New Berlin when North Greene visits Waverly at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The Lady Spartans begin Western Illinois Valley Conference play against the Illinois School for the Deaf at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Jacksonville.

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Hawks win thriller at Southwestern

Carmen Ensinger/Greene Prairie Press

Luke Palan set the tone for the second half, capping the opening possession with an and-one layup for the first of 11 second-half lead changes. Palan finished with a team-high 16 points while junior classmate Jacob Smith and Gillingham each finished with 15 for the Hawks. Senior Ethan Frye added 12 points before he and starters Cody Leonard and Cole Brannan all fouled out in the fourth quarter. Without forwards Frye and Leonard, the Hawks had to turn to little-used bench players down the stretch. Jerrett Smith and Brody Howard took on some ball-handling duties and Logan Kaiser grabbed an all-important rebound. After Gillingham's trio of free throws put Carrollton ahead late, tight defense by Palan forced a Southwestern miss and the ensuing rebound by Kaiser sealed the victory. "I can't say enough about the kid stepping up and making all three of those," Krumwiede said. Carrollton's non-conference schedule continues at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Roxana High School. SPARTANS, TIGERS WIN BIG Seasons with high expectations opened with big wins as the North Greene and Greenfield-Northwestern boys basketball teams tipped off their 2013-14 campaigns Tuesday. The Spartans had five players reach double-digit scoring totals as they beat Pleasant Hill 88-18 in a Western Illinois Valley Conference outing Tuesday at North Greene High School. Connor Vincent led all scorers with 20 points, Nathan Randall was close behind with 18 and Reed Rusten chipped in 12. Adam Knox and Andrew Davis added 10 points apiece.

SAM eLLIoTT Greene Prairie Press With the Carrollton High School boys basketball team trailing by two points with less than 30 seconds to play Tuesday, sophomore Luke Gillingham put up a 3-point attempt. It got emphatically swatted into the Southwestern High School stands. Seconds later, Gillingham faked another 3-pointer, drew his overly aggressive defender into the air, then put up a shot attempt to draw a foul. He made all three free throws with 7.6 seconds remaining to give Carrollton (2-0) a dramatic 65-64 win against the Piasa Birds. "I got my shot stuffed out of the gym the time before, so I was trying to redeem myself," Gillingham said. Gillingham hadn't attempted a free throw prior to stepping to the line with the game in the balance. He had to wait through one Southwestern timeout before he could shoot — and make — the first two and the Birds called another timeout to make Gillingham wait before attempting the game-winner. "[Waiting through the timeouts] didn't make me any more nervous," he said. "It just kind of got me focused on the free throws. I knew if I missed one, we'd have a long battle ahead." The game was a back-and-forth battle throughout. The teams traded waves of 3-pointers in the first half — eight of Carrollton's nine first-half baskets came from behind the arc — and the Piasa Birds led 31-29 at the break. "We talked at halftime and all through the second half about how we wanted to get to the free-throw line in the second half and not depend on the 3-pointers," Hawks head coach Jeff Krumwiede said. "We had lived and died with the 3s in the first half and we were still down even though we hit all those shots."
