Body found in vehicle awaiting positive ID By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie press Authorities believe they have found a missing elderly Greene County woman in a rural area of Jersey County in her burnt vehicle. Betty Short, 85, of rural Carrollton, was reported missing to the Greene County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department on Feb. 8. According to a bulletin released by Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen, the last confirmed physical sighting of Short was on Tuesday evening, Feb. 7 at approximately 9:15 p.m. when she pulled into a residence on Panhandle Road in rural Jersey County and advised the resident there that she was lost and trying to locate a subject. Short was last seen driving a 2008 White Chevy Impala and both the Greene and Jersey sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departments along with many friends and

family had scoured the countryside for Short. The search ended Friday morning. Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen issued the following statement in a press release Friday afternoon, Feb. 10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jersey County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department and the Jersey County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office are investigating and conducting the death investigation of the person discovered in the vehicle, but I believe the person found in the car was Betty A. Short,â&#x20AC;? McMillen said. McMillen referred all questions to the Jersey County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department and the Jersey County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. Jersey County Sheriff John Wimmersberg said the burned out remains of Shortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car, a 2008 Chevy Impala, were found Friday morning on Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek Road in rural Jersey

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press The Greene-Calhoun CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) Program will be holding a fundraising event on Feb. 25 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the KC Hall in Carrollton to help students raise funds to start their own businesses as part of the program. This program consists of eight students from Carrollton, North Greene, Greenfield and Calhoun high schools who meet three times a week and hear from different local business leaders about how to be a successful business owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The overall goal of this program is to spark an interest in these students in economic development,â&#x20AC;? program director Andrew Reinnert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give them an opportunity to see the success stories of local businessmen and women so,

hopefully, they will want to come back and start their own business in their communities.â&#x20AC;? By providing the tools, leadership and entrepreneurial training, the program shows students how to establish and grow a business and how local connections can help in the process. Morgan Layton is a junior at Calhoun High School and said she took the class because she saw it as a challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love trying new things and since this class was new, I thought I might like to give it a try because you never know what you might like unless you give it a try,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before I took this class, I had no idea how a business came about.â&#x20AC;?

Carrollton seeking grant for new water tower

SUNDAY, FEB. 19

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Carrollton City Council members, at the Feb. 9 regular city council meeting, gave the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering firm, Benton and Associates, authorization to prepare an engineering report in order to submit an application from the USDA for construction of a new water tower. At the last workshop meeting, Bill Sleeman of Benton and Associates informed the council that more than likely the USDA would make available funding, and the city would be in a better position to receive this funding if they had a project ready to go when the money was released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a preliminary engineering report to show them with your application, it is going to strengthen your chances,â&#x20AC;? Sleeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to show them that you are ready to move forward if you do get the grant.â&#x20AC;?

:DWHUWRZHUGDWHV EDFNWR By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press When Carrolltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city engineer, Bill Sleeman, proposed the city look into getting a grant for a new water tower he said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be sure just how old the current water tower is because there are no records of it being built, but it dates back to at least 1936 according to an aerial photo taken during this period.

Cupidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner was held in the Country Companies building in White Hall and consisted of several local vendors selling merchandise. The event was organized to encourage residents to shop local for holiday gift giving.

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Demolition of a building in White Hall came to a grinding halt Tuesday, Feb. 7, after skeletal remains were found in the basement of the building located on North Main.

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Success with less effort

Deer season has been over for a few weeks now, and turkey season is right around the corner. I like how each of these are so different than the other. If hunting turkeys involved as much as hunting deer, I would have to give up one. In days past, they were. Let me explain. Years ago, deer hunting hardly amounted to anything more than building a couple of fixed tree stands in welltraveled areas. They lasted for years and each season one would simply climb into one of those stands. There was not much preparation, and for many hunters opening day was an event that quickly came and left. There might have even been a cabin or camping area where guys would come together for a few days in order to hang out and hunt. After those few days, it was

back to work with an occasional weekend giving it another try. There was not much land management, no trail cameras, and the trophy was any deer that fell to the ground. Today, serious deer hunters never stop pursing their game. The year is made up of either hunting or getting ready to hunt. It’s February now, and if there is to be a summer crop that will keep deer close all year, the field needs to be turned and prepared for the seed that must be planted in the next few weeks. And while we’re at it, now is a good time to do some scouting since there are no leaves on the trees. One might even find some sheds to let him know what bucks may still be around. It never stops. Turkey hunting on the other hand amounts to

knowing where the turkeys are and being able to call them close enough to shoot. That’s it! And thank God for it! Easier said than done; but simple. It’s like taking something that is otherwise hard, and even pressure filled, and making it easy. I like that, and I guess that’s why I look forward to this season. When I think about the Christian life, I have similar feelings. It seems while being a Christian can bring difficulty and persecution; that persecution and difficulty need not come from one’s on hand – or rather from one’s own false ideas. I find this to be the biggest problem among believers. We make it harder than it needs to be by taking on a responsibility that, not only is not ours, but that is impossible for us to do. It’s the

responsibility for living out the Christian life. The power a n d responsibility for that comes from the Spirit of God. And as soon as we learn this, not only will the pursuit be more fun, success will come with a lot less effort. QGary Miller is an outdoorsman from Harrowgate, Tenn. He serves as a pro staff member for several hunting-related companies and also speaks at game dinners and other hunting and fishing venues about faith and the outdoors.

CEO program (Continued from A1) first things needed to start any business is capital, which is why the GreeneCalhoun CEO is putting on the GreeneCalhoun CEO Meal, Music and More fundraiser. As the title infers, there will be a meal, music and an auction where participants can bid on a wide variety of items. The event is being set up by the members of the CEO class with Greenfield senior Hunter Masters heading up the event, which is a first for him and a definite learning experience. “I’ve been put in charge of the event and everyone has to come through me if they have any questions about anything concerning the event,” Masters said. “It has been a real challenge for me because there are so many aspects involved – everything from selling tickets to getting items to add to the silent auction.” So far the response has been great. “A lot of people actually know about our class in general because of it being in the newspaper,” Masters said. “So, they usually say, ‘Yeah, I will buy a ticket’ or ‘I’ll just donate something for your silent auction.’” All of the members of the class are tasked with selling the tickets and gathering the items for the auction. North Greene senior Hunter Clanton said taking the class has helped him tremendously with his communication skills. “I am a much more social person now than I was before I started this class,” Clanton said. “I was someone who I’d have to know you and then I could have a conversation with you, but now I’m able to just go up to anyone and talk to them – even if I’ve never met them before.” Carrollton senior Hannah White said in addition to learning communication skills, the class has taught her the value of marketing skills. “The one thing that I have learned from the program is that the most important thing you can do is to get the word out,” she said. “Succeeding in business is all about timing – like this event we are having. We have been selling tickets for about a month now, even though the

event was quite some time off. People might not buy one right then, but you are getting the idea in their ear early so they can get it on their calendar. They can buy tickets at the door, but at least with us getting out there selling the tickets, they know it is going on.” Clanton is starting his own lawn mowing business; Masters is planning to sell fresh vegetables from a garden this summer and White, along with fellow CEO member Michelle Longmeyer, started M and H Essentials. “It’s basically an idea we got from Pinterest,” White said. “We make scented bath bombs, candles and things like that. It’s something that didn’t require a whole lot of startup money and something we could both be a part of since both of us have jobs and school.” Layton decided her business would consist of making tutus and headbands for little girls. Layton cleverly calls her business “Tututales” and said she is very familiar with the test market. “I have a lot of younger siblings so I will always have guinea pigs to try new things out on or to get ideas from,” she said. “Also, I chose to do tutus because, let’s face it, what little girl doesn’t love wearing tutus and pretending they’re a princess or ballerina.” And, when one group of girls outgrows their tutu’s – there’s always more waiting in the wings. Throughout the year, the students have had the opportunity to visit many different businesses and hear the business owners talk about how they got their start in business and what they attribute their success to. Each of them had a different favorite. Masters said his favorite place was Greene Gables Inn Bed and Breakfast in White Hall. “I would probably have never had the opportunity to go in there were it not for this class,” Masters said. “Honestly, I would have never thought it would have been as nice as it is nor would I have thought it would do that well in White Hall.” Clanton said that is another valuable

lesson they are learning. “We are learning how these businesses are able to stay open in a place like Greene and Calhoun counties,” Clanton said. “Their secret to operating successfully in a small town is one of the most valuable lessons we are learning.” Clanton’s favorite business was Billy Bob Teeth in Calhoun. “That was a really cool place to visit and just the crazy process of the whole thing,” Clanton said. “How he came to do it and all. But the thing that really shocked me was that his best seller wasn’t any of the crazy teeth – it was the perfect teeth. That was amazing to me.” Both Layton and White said Alfonso’s Pizza in Carrollton was their favorite place to visit. “Alfonso just had this humbleness about him when he spoke that struck me,” Layton said. “He spoke of many different things, but when he spoke to us he told us how he ended up here and how hard it was for him to adjust. There was no way I could have done what he did.” White said Alfonso’s entire story interested her. “I was very interested to hear him tell us how he just kind of up and left Peru and came to Chicago for school, met his wife and ended up coming to Carrollton,” White said. “He said that when he worked at Hardee’s, he told them that one day he was going to own a pizza restaurant and only one of his co-workers believed in him. He said that you only need one person to believe in your dream.” Layton said this coincided with the most valuable lesson she feels she learned from the class. “The most valuable lesson I learned from this class is to never give up,” she said. “In anything you do, you might fail first, but to become successful you have to keep trying. If you give up or quit the first time you fail. Then you have removed all chances of ever becoming successful in that area.” Tickets for the event at the KC Hall can be purchased from any CEO member or by contacting the Greenfield, Carrollton, North Greene or Calhoun high schools.

for a human skeletal model. “The building in which the investigation is located was used as a doctor’s office from 1920 until 1969,” Coultas said. “The White Hall Police Department has taken statements from individuals who witnessed a human skeletal model hanging inside the doctor’s office in the 1950s. There is no evidence to believe any foul play is suspected.” Coultas said that he also wanted to make it clear that the building in which the investigation took place was not involved in the fire that occurred last week. The building is owned by Ricky Gound, Jr., and prior to the adjacent fire, it was home to Sparta Cuts Hair Salon. Coultas was asked why the skeletal model was buried in the first place. “This basement had a dirt floor and the foundation was not in great shape,”

Coultas said. “This probably allowed water to seep in and animals to furrow in and after time we think the bones just settled into the dirt.” Coultas was also asked why it took so long to determine it was a medical skeleton since there should have been obvious signs present such as bored holes in the bones and metal wires which would have held the bones together. “We had to get confirmation from the Illinois State Archaeological Society that these were not remains from prehistoric times in order to uncover the bones that were just under the surface,” he said. “Once we were able to examine the bones that were covered, we found evidence of bones with holes and wires that appeared to be from a medical skeleton. Prior to being able to remove the dirt covering the bones, we were unable to see this evidence.”

Illinois State Police Crime Scene Unit was called in and the White Hall Police Department continued to work with the Greene County Coroner’s Office and the ISP unit throughout the day Wednesday. Coultas provided an update later Wednesday afternoon stating that preliminary evidence points to the human remains uncovered as being those used

Woman (Continued from A1) McMillen from Greene came down and we all pretty much just drove and drove, around the area of Kane, east of Kane, west of Kane and that entire area and we didn’t find anything,” Wimmersberg said. “The difficult part is that when you are looking for someone in a vehicle – where do you start? So, that was one of the issues we had.” Wimmersberg believes these sightings might not have been Short’s car at all. “I believe the sightings were of cars that matched the description we put out,” Wimmersberg said. “It was a white Chevy Impala being driven by an elderly female – I’m sure that’s not such an uncommon description, so if someone sees a white Impala with a female driver they might assume it was her.” The reason Wimmersberg thinks the sightings might not have been her is because

he believes the car might have been in the location at which it was found since late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. “This is only speculation and we don’t know anything for sure at this point, but based on the burn pattern at the scene and the weather we had on Wednesday and Thursday with the sleet and snow, I honestly believe the vehicle caught fire sometime within this time frame,” he said. “But until the reports come in, it is only speculation.” McMillen commended the efforts of everyone in the search for Short. “I would like to thank all the community and volunteers for their hard work in locating the vehicle that Mrs. Short was driving,” he said. “I am sure that once positive identification is made of the deceased person in the burnt car is made that it will offer some relief and comfort to the family.”

Grant (Continued from A1) for a grant, the water tower was the most pressing. “We’re not sure exactly when your water tower was built, but we know it is over 80 years old,” Sleeman said. “While we can’t find any records when it was built, we did find an aerial photo dated 1936 with the water tower in it.” (See accompanying story). According to Sleeman, the useful life of a water tower is usually around 50 years. “However, due to the due diligence of the city, your water tower has lasted a lot longer,” he said. “You’ve gotten 30 more years out of it, but the time has come that you need to be more proactive than reactive.” The council approved a resolution authorizing Benton and Associates to put together a predevelopment planning grant application for the water tower at a cost not to exceed $2,500. The council also approved authorizing the preparation of a preliminary engineering report. Sleeman said this agreement would not be in effect unless the city receives the grant. “If you don’t receive the grant, then this agreement will simply go away,” he said. “But we think you have a very good chance. We should know in around two months or so and if you do receive it, you would be responsible for 25 percent of the $27,800 cost.” The grant the city will be applying for is a 75/25 grant meaning the city would be responsible for 25 percent of the total cost of the project with the federal government picking up the other 75 percent. An update was given by Public Works Director Mike Snyder regarding the fast track demolition on four derelict properties in the city. Snyder said that he contacted Ballard Bros. in White Hall and had them come look at the properties. “We had them come down and

look at see what the demolition might entail so we can put it out for bids,” Snyder said. “The committee handling this needs to meet again to see what action they would like to take.” No one is living in any of the four houses currently being considered for demolition and the owners of the properties have not yet been contact. Alderwoman Sharon Butler said the committee needs to meet and decide in what order they want to pursue demolition of the properties once the city has gone through the proper steps required through the fast track demolition procedure. Snyder also updated the council on the Walnut Street project. The city hired the county highway department to do the project, which is supposed to alleviate some of the drainage issues on the northwest side of town. “For all intents and purposes, the county has finished with their part of the project,” Snyder said. “All that is left to do is for it to be seeded, and we will be doing that this spring when the weather turns.” Snyder informed the council he wanted to look into getting a portion of the sewer on third street near the Edgewood Drive subdivision, located south of the high school, cameraed. “The city sewer that goes up to this subdivision comes off Third Street somewhere, but we don’t know exactly where,” Snyder said. “They have issues in this subdivision and when we go in and clean the sewer on Third Street from Virginia Street on south, we alleviate their problems. We just need to see exactly where it comes off of.” Snyder said that since the city was a member of the rural water association and they do this sort of thing, that they may do the job for nothing or a nominal fee. “I’m sure we can use their services, but if not I will price someone else to camera it,” Snyder said.

“Once we find out where it comes off, we can set a manhole there so we can have access to that sewer so we can clean it and have it on a schedule to keep them from having issues.” The council approved a motion to renew the city’s electric contract for another three-year term with EnergyMe at a rate of .05243. per kilowatt hour. The city had the option of a one, two- or three-year contract, but the longer the contract the lower the rate the city received. Council members also approved renewing the city’s existing dental coverage with Delta Dental for an additional two years with no rate increase. They also approved a two-year renewal of the city’s vision coverage with Delta Vision. City Treasurer Debbie Dunlap said around 60 percent of the city’s employees take advantage of the dental and vision insurance. Premiums for these coverage are paid for by the employees enrolled in the programs. The council unanimously approved opening a separate checking account for the upcoming bicentennial in 2018 and transferring $5,000 from the General Fund to this account to be used for the bicentennial celebration. “This is still going to be a city account maintained within the regular bookkeeping system of the city,” Dunlap said. “So there is going to be regular reporting for any revenue or disbursements made within the account.” All members of the city council will be designees for signing checks and it takes at least two signatures from council members on any check written. Also approved was a bicentennial board composed of: Chairman – Bernie Faul; secretary – Mary Hires; treasurer – Dunlap and board members Sharon and Ken Butler, Dan and Elaine Pohlman and Lisa Eldridge.

Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyer coming to Carrollton Rake through the sofa cushions, dump out those junk drawers, and scan through your closets and attic! The Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyers LLP is coming to Carrollton! If you have ever wondered what that old guitar, toy or piece of broken jewelry is worth…now is your chance to find out and even possibly sell your items for cash dollars if you choose! No checks, cash paid only. The Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyers LLP will be holding a free public event at the Carrollton Public Library 509 S. Main St. Carrollton, Thursday, Feb. 23, noon rp 5 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Archie Davis, Vice President and Owner of Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyers LLP, hopes everyone will come out and take advantage of this free opportunity to learn from their experts and possibly even leave with some cash in your pocket. “I have a number of outstandingly knowledgeable individuals that have years of experience in evaluating old coins, currencies, toys, dolls, trains, advertising tems, and watches just to name a few.” Davis told us. “If you have items such as these, now might be the perfect time to liquidate them. We will make fair offers on anything that is old or gold; and pay you for your treasure in cash dollars”. People should expect to arrive to a fun and friendly event. They openly share their knowledge and want to educate folks. All of the associates are professional and friendly people who have a passion for the “old and interesting”. Most items they see can be carried in, but another thing people can do is to take pictures of large or heavy items with their cell phone. They can then see them via the phone or even by texting the picture to them. “Everyone has something that they have always been curious to research. I cannot count the times that we hear, ‘Oh wow that’s what that is!’ or “I’ve shown this thing to 10 different people and nobody knew what it was, let alone that it was worth so much money,” says Davis. “We have fun seeing the lights “turn on” in our client’s eyes on those occasions when we can “make their day”! It’s a Wwn-win situation and we just love those!” Many people may hesitate to bring in items such as broken pocket or wristwatches,

twisted up heaps of necklaces or costume jewelry, or those tokens or tie clips that have been pushed around for years in drawers or jewelry boxes. They think, “Who would want this stuff?” The answer is we do, and we will pay you for them! You would be amazed at how quickly little things can add up! Davis says another increasingly popular way to take advantage of his team’s services – call and set up a home visit. “Some people might let this opportunity slip past them due to a lack of mobility or other limiting factors. We understand these things totally and we can make arrangements to come to see you when it is warranted.” “We are really excited about another avenue for qualified sellers that we have just added to our roster of services. It is a joint venture that we have recently created with one of Illinois’ top auction services. They have eliminated the sales commission to sellers, and now burden the buyers with it to save you money! Large estates, small estates, antique/pawn store buy-outs, you name it and we will evaluate it and make offers. For highly rare items or large estates, we will advance money towards the eventual sale price and use their nationwide network of buyers to properly place your items with so they realize their maximum potential. “The nationwide focus has been set on gold & silver due to their high values.” Davis states, “But we look at anything you bring to us because there can be a lot of value in the most unsuspecting item!” Musical instruments, toys, advertising items, all foreign coins, all US coins dated 1970 and earlier, silver & gold bullion, currency, war memorabilia, old sterling flatware sets, purses and handbags! Also Davis recommends that you do not try to clean or polish anything as you could actually reduce its value. Land Of Lincoln Treasure Buyers LLP is a small company made up of friends and colleagues and it is based in Jacksonville. To conduct business in this fashion we all undergo and pass background checks monthly as required by state and local officials.

New Illinois hunting and trapping season for bobcats a success Hunters and trappers took a preliminary total of 141 bobcats during the 2016-17 Illinois Bobcat Hunting and Trapping Season. “We are very pleased with the response to Illinois’ new hunting and trapping season for bobcats,” said Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Director Wayne Rosenthal. “The recovery of the bobcat is a conservation success story in Illinois. We were pleased with the response of hunters and trappers that applied for permits, and we will continue to evaluate the program.” More than 6400 people applied for 500 permits to take bobcats. Those awarded a permit in the lottery were required to register their harvest within 48 hours and purchase a Bobcat Pelt Temporary Permit. hey reported

taking 69 bobcats by hunting, 49 by trapping, 12 by archery, and salvaging 11 from roads. Bobcats were harvested in 44 counties in the open zone, which included western and southern parts of the state. Top counties were Pike (11), Jackson (10), Jefferson (7), Carroll (6), and Randolph (6). Prelimininary bobcat harvest totals for other local counties were: Calhoun, 2; Greene, 2; Scott, 3. The 2016-17 season for hunting bobcats with bow or gun was conducted Nov. 10, 2016 through Jan. 31, 2017 (closed during Firearm Deer Season), while permitted trappers were able to take bobcats Nov. 5, 2016 through Jan. 20, 2017 in the northern zone and Nov. 10, 2016 through Jan. 25, 2017 in the southern zone.

Tower &RQWLQXHGIURP$

discovered a document from the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works dated Aug. 7, 1924 and directed to City Clerk J.E. Postlewait.” Chicago Bridge and Iron Works submitted a bid of $9,820 to construct a 100,000 gallon elevated steel tank. While this might sound like a pittance according to today’s prices, apparently the company was having problems collecting payment on other towers it had constructed. “Since we frequently have encountered difficulties regarding payments when contracting with municipalities, we trust that there will be no objection on your part to giving us full information concerning the financial arrangements which have been made to pay for the 100,000 gallon elevated steel tank to be erected by us,” the letter said. “Will you kindly tell us, therefore, whether the full amount of $9,820 is now on hand ready to be drawn as the payments become due and available for no other purpose? If the money is not now on hand, please advise us how the money is to be raised, whether by bond issue, borrowing or tax levy.” Obviously, this was long before month at 7 p.m. at City Hall and Faul said everyone is welcome to attend. “We need the input from the citizens of Carrollton because we are looking for different ways to raise money for this celebration,” Faul said. “We have a couple ideas, but we need volunteers to help with these fundraisers.” Faul, who is also a member of the Carrollton Chamber of Commerce, commented on an upcoming mayoral debate being scheduled for March 13 at 7 p.m. at the high school. The Chamber is hosting the event along with the high school American Government class.

government bureaucracy entered into the picture because Postlewait’s response was scribbled on the bottom of the original letter. “All of the money is not on hand at this time, but will be paid to your firm as quickly as payments are due. Bonds were voted last April and the money will all be available on or before Sept. 30, 1924.” This must have been enough assurance for Chicago Bridge and Iron Works because a contract was drawn up and signed by Chicago Bridge and Iron Works and a copy submitted to the Caldwell Engineering Company on Sept. 2, which is located in Jacksonville. “No one had any idea just how old the tower was, but none of us thought it was almost 100 years old,” Scott said. “I guess you could say we have gotten very good use out of it all these years, but I would say it’s time we looked into a new one.” The city is currently in the process of submitting a pre-application grant for funding from the USDA. If approved for the 75/25 grant, the city would be responsible for only 25 percent of the total cost of construction of the new tower.

“We have sent letters out to all of the candidates asking for their participation,” Faul said. “We are still working on how we are going to get the questions submitted from the public, but we do plan to have a way for the residents to submit questions they would like to see answered by the candidates.” Dunlap announced on March 18 the second annual Guns and Hoses event will be held at the Carrollton High School at 7 p.m. Proceeds from the event will go to a local cancer patient. The event pits local law enforcement officers against local firemen in a friendly game of basketball.

County board approves backhoe purchase By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Greene County Board members barely had enough members present Wednesday, Feb. 8 to convene their regular monthly meeting. Board members Michael McNear, A.J. McAdams and John Goode were absent when the board convened at 7 p.m., but Goode arrived shortly thereafter at 7:10 p.m. At the recommendation of the finance committee and Highway Supervisor David Marth, the board approved the purchase of a new backhoe for the highway department. “We were really needing to update our backhoe at this time and this purchase is well within our equipment budget for 2017,” Marth said. “We took bids and got one from a Caterpillar dealer and two from John Deere dealers.” The lowest bid was received from Martin Equipment in Springfield, who is a John Deere dealer. Their low bid was $57,633.69 for a John Deere 410 L. The price includes the

trade-in of the department’s current backhoe. As a formality, the finance committee presented four tax resolutions for the board to approve, which basically transfers property deeds to new owners. The four properties included two in Roodhouse, one in White Hall and one in Patterson. The board also approved the county treasurer setting up a drug court fund. This would be a separate line item in the probation department to disperse money. “We can’t use this money for anything else other than for this purpose,” County Clerk Debbie Banghart said. “You are actually setting up the fund for that money to go into but you have to approve the treasurer setting those accounts up.” For the second time in an as many months, the board went into closed session. This time it was for negotiations concerning the Fraternal Order of Police contract. After around 20 minutes the board entered back into open session and no action was taken on items discussed in closed session.

Learn Something New Every Day “The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.” —Proverbs 18:15 NIV

T

he advice to learn something new every day is akin to saving something for a rainy day, since skills and knowledge are powerful tools which we will someday need. We just don’t know when. You never know when those Spanish classes will pay off, but you can rest assured that you will eventually run into someone who speaks Spanish but doesn’t speak English. Learning also satisfies what psychologists call “stimulus drives,” that is, drives such as curiosity and a desire for novelty which make us more open to the world around us and more competent in our interactions with the world. A former professor of mine used to say that knowledge was like the empty bags from the grocery store that we keep under the sink. We don’t know when, but we know we will eventually use them. So, besides the inherent joy and interest that comes from learning something new, it’s money in the bank that will pay healthy dividends. – Christopher Simon

State seeks nominations for Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Volunteer Service Awards

Carmen Ensinger/Greene Prairie Press

Super Saturday sign-in

The Serve Illinois Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service (Serve Illinois) is accepting nominations for the eighth annual Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Volunteer Service Awards. These awards recognize individual volunteers and for-profit businesses and highlight the importance of community service in Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each year, 2.4 million Illinoisans take time out of their busy lives to help their neighbors,â&#x20AC;? said Scott McFarland, Executive Director of Serve Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These volunteers are helping keep children safe, keeping our environment pristine, helping people find jobs, and so much more. They improve and save lives each and every day, and with these awards, we recognize the best of Illinois.â&#x20AC;?

Alex Little busies herself making name tags for fellow class members for the Super Saturday event at North Greene High School sponsored by the Class of 2019 as a fundraiser. Super Saturday allowed parents to drop their kids off at the high school for a full day and evening of fun while they (parents) enjoyed an early Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day or just caught up on laundry. More than 40 students and many adults helped keep the kids entertained. More than 80 kids had been preregistered for the event.

Serve Illinois will present individual awards to one youth (18 years and under), one adult (1954 years old), and one retiree/senior (55 years and older) in each of Serve Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; five service regions across the state (Northeast, Northwest, East Central, West Central, and Southern). Serve Illinois will present National Service Awards to one AmeriCorps member, one Senior Corps member, and one for-profit business in each of the five service regions. Nominations are due to Serve Illinois by Feb. 17, 2017. Please visit www. serve.illinois.gov for the nomination forms and more information. Serve Illinois will host a ceremony to honor recipients on April 25, 2017 at the Old State Capitol in

Springfield. The Serve Illinois Commission is a 40 member (25 voting and 15 nonvoting), bi-partisan board appointed by the Governor and administered by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Its mission is to improve Illinois communities by enhancing volunteerism and instilling an ethic of service throughout the state. The Commission is accomplishing this mission through the support of local communitybased efforts to enhance volunteer opportunities and the administration of Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; AmeriCorps program. For more information on Serve Illinois, or to find one of more than 2,500 volunteer opportunities in the state, please visit www.Serve.Illinois. gov.

SPORTS B1 Hawks go to 5-3 in the conference Spartans steal game in second half Wednesday, February 15, 2017 Carrollton, Illinois

By STEVEN SPENCER Greene Prairie Press Freshman Ethan Brannan drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Hawks a 12-point lead over Calhoun as they headed into the final quarter, eventually taking the win at home Friday, Feb. 10. Carrollton came into the first quarter with an aggressive offense and was able to get 16 points up against the Calhoun Warriors. Calhoun managed to match the Hawks effort in the first quarter, and scored 16 points tying up the game before heading into the second quarter. The Hawks stepped up their defense in the second quarter and continued to hit the Warriors with an aggressive offense. Putting 20 points on the board before halftime gave the Hawks a 10-point lead over Calhoun. A strong defense prevented the Warriors from scoring over 10 points, and the Hawks had the lead at halftime 36-26. The Warriors came back from halftime ready to go against the Hawks defense, and Calhoun scored 18 points in the third quarter. But Brannan sinking the 3 at the buzzer gave the Hawks 20 at the end of the third and a 12-point lead, 56-44. Carrollton brought their tough defense and offense into the fourth quarter and outscored Calhoun 18-12 to take the win the 74-56. The Hawks will face off against Triopia Saturday, Feb. 18 before heading to Greenfield to take on Calhoun again in the first round of regionals Monday, Feb. 20.

Jeremy Watson goes after two points for the Hawks Friday, Feb. 10 as they beat Calhoun.

By STEVEN SPENCER Greene Prairie Press Trailing the West Central Cougars 11-5 after the first quarter Friday, Feb. 10, the Spartans came back strong to steal the win in the second half at Winchester. Down by four points at the start of the second quarter, the Spartans turned up their defense, and only let the Cougars get four more points before halftime. With less than a minute left in the first half, Jonah Hopper hit a twopointer to cut the Cougars lead down to two points, 15-13. Josh Hopper scored four points in the third quarter before an injury took him out of the game. Jonah Hopper was able to score four more, Dominic Booth scored two, and with 50 seconds left in the third quarter Layne Newingham tied things up. There was still enough time for the Cougars to put two more points up, and the Spartans were down by two 27-25 at the end of the third quarter. Blake Dean started the fourth quarter draining a 3-pointer for North Greene to take a one point lead. Zion Thomas hit another 3 for the Spartans with only minutes left to take the lead 35-31, but there was time for West Central to tie things at 37 with two minutes left in the game. With the final buzzer seconds away Jonah Hopper scored two more points, and stepped up to the foul line

with only six seconds left for one more point. There wasn’t enough time for the Cougars to respond, and the Spartans took the win, 40-37. Jonah Hopper led the game in scoring with 15 points for the Spartans. The Spartans head coach Brett Berry said coming at the Cougars strong defensively really turned things around in the second quarter. “I was really impressed with how well our kids picked themselves up, defensively,” Berry said, “That was a big change in the game. We didn’t step back and we came after them.” Getting their offense under control made a difference for North Greene in the second half. “We were frustrated about a couple different things and having a hard time getting our offense organized and under

control, but came back the second half, settled down and got back to playing our game. West Central is an outstanding team. They play really well on their floor, and to come in here and grab a win from them is big for us.” Berry said. The Spartans go up against the Greenfield/Northwestern Tigers Friday, Feb. 17 in their last game before heading to regionals. The Spartans are now 6-2 in the conference after beating West Central, and Berry said his team is excited about heading toward the postseason. “We’re going to keep playing, keep doing the things we’re doing, and keep a rhythm,” Berry said, “The guys are starting to find a groove together. They’re playing at a high level and thats what they want to keep doing.”

RCHS Class of 1962 met to plan 55 - year reunion Members of the Roodhouse Community High School Class of 1962 met on Jan. 31 at 11:30 in The Jones House north dining room to discuss the upcoming Class’ 55-year reunion. Those present for the meeting were: Jim Jeffers, Elsie Williams Gibbs, Linda McGinnis Barnd, Beverly Ballard Norris, Louise Kelley Jones, Forrest and Becky Jones, Barbara Crafton Kesinger and Pat Winder Plahn. After enjoying a good meal and fellowship the meeting was held to discuss the Reunion. The group decided it would be good to hold the reunion after the Alumni Banquet on Saturday evening June 17. It was decided we would send out letters informing all the classmates that we would like their attendance and encourage them to bring photos and old memorabilia they might like to share and talk about. A new sheet to be added to our 50 Year annual will be made from all the information we receive back from the forms we have in the letter. We hope all will respond and that all who can will attend. A follow-up meeting will be held at The Jones House on March 7 at 11:30 a.m. All Classmates are invited to come and join in the conversation and meal. Submitted by Pat Winder Plahn correspondent.
