Roodhouse receives water project grant By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

Roodhouse received more good news last week in regards to its multimillion dollar water project. Confirmation was received that the city is the recipient of a $530,000 water and waste disposal grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The grant will help offset the $1.3 million overage in the city’s water project. The city’s water supply was contaminated in 2003 when heavy rains flooded the city’s aquifer. After two years on a boil order, the EPA mandated that the city must provide potable water to its citizens. A planning study was conducted and the city was left with basically four options – doing nothing (which was not acceptable), connecting to White Hall or South Jacksonville for their water, using their existing wells with a surface treatment plant built at the existing site, or building new wells drawing water from the Illinois River along with a new water treatment plant.

> > The project

includes drilling new wells at the Illinois River, new transmission lines, water meter replacement and construction of a new water treatment plant.

A previous administration voted to build new wells and a new treatment plant and in 2007 the city submitted an application to the United States Department of Agriculture for a lowinterest loan in the amount of $5.1 million to move forward with the project. The $5.1 million guaranteed to the city is from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The project includes drilling new (See, GRANT, A2)

High winds cause motorcycle accident By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Two North Greene residents were seriously injured in a onevehicle motorcycle crash on Saturday, April 2 on the Eldred-Hillview blacktop that is being blamed on the wind. Clint E. Newingham, 36, of White Hall and Amanda R. Crain, 24, of Roodhouse received serious injuries in the accident involving a 2002 Harley-Davidson motorcycle which occurred at 2:51 p.m. According to the Illinois State Police, Newingham, the driver, was traveling the Eldred-Hillview blacktop approximately 500 feet north of 1470 North Road. Newingham started to travel northbound in the southbound lane to pass a group of motorcycles when his motorcycle

was pushed by a severe cross wind. He lost control and skidded on the roadway onto the gravel shoulder on the west. He then skidded back onto the road before impacting the roadway with the right side of the motorcycle. He continued skidding towards the west shoulder and drove off the embankment. The motorcycle flipped end over end and ejected both Newingham and Crain. The motorcycle then skidded 101.9 feet coming to rest on the west side of the road. Newhingham was transported to Boyd Memorial Hospital in Carrollton by the Greene County Ambulance Service. Crain was taken to St. Johns Hospital, Springfield, by Air EVAC. Neither rider was wearing a helmet. Newingham was ticked for failure to reduce speed.

Melissa Hardwick, a resident of White Hall Nursing and Rehab, pets Phury, alongside his foster mom, Brenn Killion, who happens to be the Director of Therapy at the center. Killion brings Phury to work every day and he helps the patients with their therapy.

WHNR fostering a new kind of therapy By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press There is a new resident of the four-legged variety roaming the halls of the White Hall Nursing and Rehab Center – at least temporarily, that is. The center is taking part in an animal fostering program called “Fostering Love” which takes animals that are about to be euthanized from local dog pounds and provides a temporary home whereby the dog, or cat, can become socialized and have a better chance at adoption. Their first “foster child” is Phury, a boxer/pit mix puppy between 4-6 months of age. He was rescued from the Jacksonville facility where he was scheduled to be euthanized. At night he stays with Director of Physical Therapy Brenn Killion of Roodhouse, but during the day he comes to work with her and provides his own type of therapy to the residents. “I was interested in fostering a dog, and then I talked to Lisa (Administrator Lisa Clark) about bringing him to work with me every day so he can interact with the residents,” Killion said. “I am of the belief that animals help heal people. We’ve seen how some of the residents react when someone brings a pet in. So, our residents had a residents council meeting and voted Yes on having a foster dog here.” But Phury is much more than just a pretty face around the center. “He comes to work with me

every day and then different residents walk him as part of their therapy program,” Killion said. “For residents who require reaching therapy, we have them reach down and pet the dog. Some of the residents who had dogs at home walk with us,

Brenn Killion Director of physical therapy and it's very good therapy. A lot of people who don’t normally interact very much – if there is a dog around, they will interact.” But as helpful as Phury is already, the goal of the fostering program is to find forever homes for

the animals. “This is a program where he comes to work with me, helps me with therapy on the residents and the residents love him,” Killion said “Hopefully, we will find him a good home, and then it will make everyone feel like we have a mission of some sort, which we do.” Killion said Phury has a very good temperament, is very gentle with both old people and children and generally just a laid back dog, especially for still being a puppy. “When he came into my house for the first time, he smelled around but he didn’t run,” she noted. “He then got up on the couch, arranged the cushions the way he wanted them and laid down. “ Killion said he is not a “touchy” dog. “A lot of times, a dog won’t like for you to touch them in a certain area, such as their feet or teeth, but not Phury,” she said. “You can touch him anywhere.” Killion proved this while Phury was lying down for a nap by lifting up his lip and showing his pearly whites. “There’s just not any place you can touch that will upset this dog.” Phury is currently a little skittish around men, but that is being addressed. “He’s a little skittish at first, but once he warms up to them he is OK,” Killion said. “On the plus side, he doesn’t bark a lot, already sits on command and gets along well with kids and other animals.” Phury is up for adoption. One qualification for his placement is that his new owner must have a (See, DOG, A2)

County health rankings may skew truth Carrollton Pool getting ready for summer By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

Numbers can be deceiving. The latest County Health Rankings for Greene County rank the county as one of the worst counties in the state in which to live. The County Health Rankings are a key component of the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Counties in each of the 50 states are ranked according to summaries of a variety of health measures. Those having high ranks, e.g. 1 or 2 are considered to be “healthiest.” Counties are ranked relative to the health of other counties in the same state on the following summary measures: Q Health outcomes including length of life (mortality) and quality of life

(morbidity) Q Health factors including health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic and physical environment. Out of 102 counties in Illinois, Greene County is ranked 82nd in both the mortality and morbidity categories, meaning only 20 counties in the state have worse quality and length of life statistics. This is a stark contrast to Jersey County, which was ranked 20th in morbidity and 38th in mortality. Calhoun trumped Greene County with rankings of 27th in mortality and 31st in morbidity. Greene County Public Health Administrator Ruth Ann Flowers does not agree with the findings. “I guess we can look at these numbers, but I don’t think a lot of them are right and there is nothing we can do about it,” she said. “Some of the numbers they come up with are totally out of sync. For example, it has Greene County’s crime rate at 467 per 100,000 population. We know that is not true – we

have had like two violent crimes that I can recall. It’s things like that.” There are some areas which Flowers said are more on target such as the children in poverty which shows the county to be five percent above the state level. “We know there are not a lot of jobs in the county and with gas so high it’s hard on people who work out of town,” Flowers said. “We know that our children’s poverty level is high because we have a lot of people in our county who are barely scraping by on minimum wage.” Flowers said the rankings gather their information from a variety of sources including Medicare, Medicaid, the CDC and the Behavior Risk Surveillance System, which is a telephone health survey. “By the way they weight the answers and compare the counties, some of it is so skewered that to me, I just (See, HEALTH, A2)

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Visitors to the Carrollton Pool this year will notice quite a change. Since its formation last fall, the Carrollton Pool Committee has been working feverishly to restore the pool to its original glory. This has been accomplished by installing a new pool lining, new siding on the exterior and plans for extensive renovation on the shower rooms. Thanks to a generous donation by an anonymous donor, the pool committee was able to install a new liner in both the baby pool and the big pool at a cost of around $3,500. Rather than re-painting the aging wood on the exterior of the building, Brian Funk installed siding. The pool is scheduled to open

several doors on the pool house will be replaced. The chain-link fencing which surrounds the pool will get a fresh coat of paint. To help with this task, a community clean-up date has been set for Saturday, May 21 beginning at 9 a.m. The committee has set the hours of the pool this year from noon until 5 p.m. daily. Prices have been rolled back to $2 for students 17 year of age and under; $3 for adults over 18 and senior citizens aged 62 and over $2. Passes will be available at a price of $50 for a single pass; $150 for a family pass (includes immediate family living in one household) and $35 for a senior adult pass. Prices have not been set for pool parties, but parties will be held (See, POOL, A2)

We also purchased an Easy Ladder for greater ease in entering the pool. It is our hope to once again offer swimming lessons and maybe an adult swim class, too.” The outer deck of the pool will also get a makeover with new Adirondack and suntan chairs, and

OPINION

Carrollton, Illinois

Life on the Farm E

very so often, I get the urge to try something different. Maybe it is the onset of spring and the need to try something new. So, when Farmer Fran asked me if I wanted to help put in a garden I jumped at it – dirt and all. Gardening is not totally foreign to me. When I was younger and still at home, I would ever so often plant three or four tomato plants in my back yard and reap their harvests for weeks, with plenty left over. But I was not prepared for putting in a garden on a farm! I thought I would come prepared so I rummaged around the “mini Home Depot” (aka

the garage) and found a little shovel to dig the holes for the tomato plants (that’s all I’ve ever planted). Imagine my surprise when I got out to the farm and saw the planting area I was to be working with. It was the size of a football field. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating a little, but it was certainly a lot bigger than the six-foot by six-foot area I “farmed” in my backyard. They do things differently on the farm than they did on Maple Street. I felt like a fool standing there holding my little shovel when Farmer Fran dragged out the big tiller. The thing looked absolutely scary to me,

especially when she started it up and it took off by itself. I quickly learned that there was more to putting in a real garden than just digging a little hole and sticking in the tomato plant. No, you had to till up the entire area – not once – but twice. After Farmer Fran did a couple rows, she turned it over to me. First off, those things have no brakes – they just keep going and going unless you hold them back – or this one did – I think it was one of the first ones that came off the assembly line. And then if you hold it back and don’t move, it just goes deeper. I think I went halfway down to China on my first

row when I came to the end because I wasn’t strong enough to turn it. I was OK going straight, but I had to have help on those corners. Our first crop was potatoes. Turns out you have to dig a trench, put the potatoes in and then cover them up. Sounds easy, but I was told the line has to be straight. I can’t draw a straight line, much less dig one. My first row bore a striking resemblance to an echocardiogram – all over the map. But I have to say that by the end of the day I became the “hoe master.” Those lines were straighter than any she had ever seen before, though a part of me thinks she just said that to

TO THE EDITOR: “Roodhouse was laid out and named in 1866, for John Roodhouse. In 1871, when the Louisiana branch of the Chicago and Alton Railroad was planned, a group of enterprising spirits conceived the idea of Roodhouse as a railroad junction. It was accepted by railroad officials and thus Roodhouse became a railroad center of the Middle West. On the 10 acres secured, a large depot was built by the company deemed the ‘handsomest depot between Chicago and Kansas City,’ as well as a round house and repair shop. Other enterprises were nearby coal mines, a brick kiln, a foundry and the first location of the world famous Eli Bridge Ferris Wheel Factory.” Those who remember the stories of early Roodhouse and the years when the community was in its prime will often point to the impact of the city as a rail hub that brought many newcomers and industry to the community. Due to progressive ambitions of the Eisenhower administration in the 1950s, the landscape of transportation shifted from rail to Interstate travel. It was also in this decade that suburbia was begun. On Friday, April 8, 2011, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn committed funds to build Route or I67 from where it exists just north of Roodhouse to the Greene County line just south of Carrollton. Construction is slated to begin as early as next year. Likewise, construction is already underway from Jerseyville south to I-255. Once completed (2017) Roodhouse will be 45 minutes from downtown St. Louis. The national

commute in America currently is 50 minutes which puts Roodhouse in a position to attract new people to the area much like the railroad did in the nineteenth century. Our proximity to St. Louis and the Metro East will offer an attractive alternative to the crowed areas with high property taxes and expensive real estate. However, the city fathers have done little to nothing to annex land to the east where the road will be built. Failure to annex this land will mean that any industry or subdivision that are common with transportation hubs will see the tax dollars not go to Roodhouse but to the county seat, Carrollton. The road is no longer a pipe dream, it's coming. The reader can count on land acquisition to take place by entities such as gas stations, restaurants, and hotels. With the construction of the court-mandated water plant, Roodhouse will be in a position to offer an ample supply of water for any new growth. In solicitation of this issue which has been discussed many times since 2006 when two of the city’s engineers told us to annex the land, I was told that “more pressing issues need to be taken care of first.” I am sure that the new council will have many “here and now” issues to deal with. However, the issue of annexation is a “can that has been kicked down the road” for several years with each council proclaiming the same excuse and passing it on to the next group. To accomplish this task is simple. The council must hire Gordon Jumper of South Jacksonville to do the work. Offer current land owners a ten year cap on any tax increase and suspension of prevailing city ordinances. The land owners will enjoy the perks of city protection at no cost to them. Within ten years the road will be done and growth will follow if the city leaders market the community as a friendly place

Health

that is small with a changing school district and several churches, a fine police and fire department, and a good infrastructure, as well as a unified government that is dedicated to future growth and the clean up of derelict properties. Many who live and work in places like Alton and the metro area will find Roodhouse a pleasant place to live that affords these amenities and property that is less expensive than St. Louis and the metro area, including property taxes, as well. This is exactly the same thing that Mr. Roodhouse and the group of enterprising spirits conceived when they saw the promise of the coming railroad. However, none of this is possible unless the land is annexed into the city and the new city council fails to unify. The past two years have put Roodhouse on the front page of the local paper and city hall been full of rancor and dispute. These disputes have cost the taxpayers a great deal of money. The incoming council must get past this and work with the mayor to stop the petty fights that have marred the community’s image. I was disappointed to learn that on the very night of the election threatening phone calls harassing current city workers stating that they will “be fired on May second” were made by members attending a victory party at an alderman’s home. This action is incongruous to starting a new a new chapter in Roodhouse politics nor will it serve to unify the community or to find solutions to pressing issue that plague the city now or in the future. In correspondence with another alderman-elect, I expressed my concern about this very issue and asked this person what they plan to do now that they are elected. The alderman elect replied, “I dont think at this time I can answer them (my questions) 100% yet....... but I am 100% sure that on the 20th of April city will be packed with people asking question and saying

The cost of the water treatment plant was an estimated $1.5 million more

their congrats to all of us who won. So all I can tell you now is be at that meeting, bring your 10 people group then ask me these questions.” This reply concerns me as this statement implies that no agenda or platform has been thought out and that the ten people who are interested in seeing unity are not important. In a previous message to this same alerman-elect when asked about pressing issues his reply was, “Ok let me tell you we need to save money, simple as that..... “While I can appreciate the need to reduce spending, simply voting “No” on outlaying is a guileless and artless approach. This author does not wish to place blame on anyone nor do I want to see “sides” taken by the new coucil. As a citizen with capital invested in real estate and a taxpayer and utility customer, I as well as many others want to see a new chapter of change which includes unity. It’s time to act on the present as well as the future. It’s time to put an end to the last two years of wrangling and come together to improve the town. Get the buildings cleaned up, fine those who refuse to comply to existing laws of garbage and trash, stop the petty lawsuits on our dime, and get on the annexation process before it is too late to get the land and collect future revenue. Roodhouse can not afford two more years of antagonism, antipathy, and hostility. Those of us who put the council in power will be watching closely to make sure that they keep campaign promises. A “unity group” is coming together to help and take action working on positive programs and planning for the community’s future. Congratulations to the new alderpersons.

But it does make us aware that we might have a trend starting in some areas. We will just analyze it and go from there.”

Roodhouse Mayor Joe Snyder said a lot of time and effort has been spent by several city officials and the engineers to secure the additional funding.

Greene County law enforcement cracks down By STAFF REPORT Greene Prairie Press The message Greene County law enforcement is sending out is pretty clear – if you are involved in illegal drug activity or illegal criminal activity of any sort – better have your wallet handy. Hot off the heels of a major drug bust in Roodhouse on March 22, the Greene County Street-level Interdiction Team (S.I.T.) – consisting of law enforcement personnel from the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, Carrollton, White Hall, Roodhouse and Greenfield police departments – participated in an operation from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday, April 8. The S.I.T. Operation focused on patrolling the various roads and highways in Greene County, focusing on making contacts with individuals to determine if they are involved in illegal drug activity, drunk driving and other various criminal activity.

Sixteen officers were assigned to this operation. The operation made a total of 32 contacts with the public and netted the following arrests: two arrests made on warrants, three arrests for illegal drug possession charges, three citations issued for illegal transportation of alcohol within a motor vehicle, one arrest for zero tolerance (driver under the age of 21 driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol), one arrest made for driving while revoked, one arrest made for illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor, 13 citations issued for speeding, six citations issued for operation of uninsured motor vehicles, two citations issued for lane and passing violations and three citations issued for unsafe equipment. Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen praised the officers for their activity and reports that the drug arrests made and alcohol related arrests generated from this operation made the whole operation a success. “These type of activities will surely make the

drug dealers and criminals realize that the law enforcement agencies in Greene County are aggressively pursuing them, and will continue to pursue them until they are caught,” McMillen said. “This will make our communities and highways safer for our families to live in and drive on. The S.I.T. Operation is an excellent example of the smaller departments with limited manpower and resources uniting together in the name of pursuing criminals and drug dealers and users.” McMillen extends appreciation to Carrollton Police Chief Terry Gross, White Hall Police Chief Jack Wallis, Roodhouse Police Chief Steve Speeks and Greenfield Police Chief John Goode for allowing their officers to participate in the operation. The fine revenues collected from these types of S.I.T. Operations will go into the Greene County States Attorney’s Office Drug Enforcement Fund to help fund drug enforcement activities in Greene County.

Stice trial continued until July By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press A jury pre-trial in the Nancy Stice case has been continued until July at the request of the defense. Stice, deputy city clerk of Roodhouse, is on unpaid administrative leave after charges were filed against her in Greene County

Circuit Court alleging theft and misconduct in October of last year. A jury pre-trial was set for April 6 with a trial set to begin on April 18, but it was agreed by both council to continue the case with a jury pre-trial scheduled for July 6 at 10:30 a.m. and a trial set to begin July 18.

IDOT announces lane restriction The Illinois Department of Transportation on Tuesday announced that IL 267 over Bear Creek, approximately 3.5 miles north of Greenfield in Greene County, will be reduced to one lane beginning Tuesday, April 12, weather permitting. The roadway is being reduced to facilitate stage construction of a new bridge over Bear Creek. Temporary traffic signals will be

utilized to assist motorists through the work zone, and work should be completed by Sept. 1, 2011. Work is being done by Kinney Contractors, Inc. of Raymond, Ill. Joe Gasaway is the Supervising Field Engineer for the Illinois Department of Transportation in this area. If you have any questions concerning this project, you may contact him at (618) 346-3354.

Advocates push back Eldred House Clean-up against Smart Grid this Saturday, April 16 ILLINOIS STATE HOUSE NEWS

There are new cries from Springfield about the possibility that electric bills going up for rate payers across Illinois. The state’s major power companies, Commonwealth Edison Co., known as ComEd, and Ameren Services, are pushing for legislation that the companies say will allow for a newer, better electric grid. ComEd’s Val Jenson said the Smart Grid may cost some people more, but counters there are a lot of people who could save through modernization and efficiency upgrades. “Do we know everything about how customers would change their behavior if they had smart meters and the options they provide? No,” Jenson said. “But we do know the longer we wait, the longer low-use customers will subsidize high-use customers.” Ameren and ComEd are considering spending $3.6 billion on electric grid upgrades if lawmakers

give them the OK. The utilities say Ameren’s downstate electric customers will likely pay little more than an extra $5 a year, while ComEd says its customers can expect a $36 a year bump on their power bills. But watchdogs are worried about the prices and the approach. Dean Clough with AARP in Illinois said the proposed law would lock in profits for ComEd and Ameren and stick customers with the bill. The legislation “puts the risk on consumers and businesses while the utilities can go on a technology shopping binge,” Clough said. “Illinois consumers and business simply cannot afford for automatic rate increase and guaranteed profits for utility companies to be put into Illinois law,” he said. Lawmakers are holding hearings on the plan. The first of many votes on the legislation could come this week. Once that happens the Illinois House may have just a few days to decide whether to send the proposal to the Illinois Senate for further consideration.

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press This will be a year for firsts as the Illinois Valley Cultural Heritage Association will be having its Greene County Days event on the Eldred House property. An annual clean up day will be held this Saturday, April 16 starting at 9 a.m. to help prepare the property for open tours for the first time in over a decade. “There are many projects that must be completed before Greene County Days in order to ensure that this year is a success,” IVCHA President Seth McGee said. “In addition to food, music, craft and flea markets, a new event, The Eldred Country Ball,

promises to be a value-added event that is sure to breathe new life into the area.” IVCHA will be providing lunch for any volunteers who come out and show their support. “We will have jobs for every skill level,” McGee said. “Basic cleaning duties will be done inside the home including dusting, windows, sweeping and organizing. Work outside will be completed such as mowing, yard clean up as well as more of the tree line will be cleared and resetting the stone fence.” While all cleaning supplies will be available, McGee said that anything else that workers could bring would be utilized and greatly appreciated.

Greenfield student among Student Ambassadors Casey Jacoby, a sophomore from Greenfield, served as a student ambassador last fall for the Illinois College Office of Admission. Jacoby graduated from Greenfield High School and is the son of Larry and Laura Jacoby of Greenfield. Student ambassadors contribute to the recruitment efforts of the college’s Office of Admission by providing exceptional service to prospective students and family members during visits to the campus of the liberal arts college. “The student ambassadors are a phenomenal group of energetic young people eager to share their IC stories with our campus guests. They are knowledgeable about all aspects of campus and student life and can provide guests with valuable information about Illinois College,” said Senior Assistant Director of Admission and Student Ambassador Advisor Sarah Briggs.

My deep thoughts – do you remember your mother winding the bobbin on her sewing machine and teaching the pretend game with your hands – wind, wind the bobbin – pull, pull and tap, tap? Barbara Kohl remembered. Go in and out the window. Children stood in a circle singing as each took turns going in and out. One verse we stood up, faced a friend, threw a kiss. For little children at 9 a.m. march nine wooden soliders. Another fine exercise game was to “waddle like a duck” singing be kind to your fine feathered friend, for a duck may be somebody’s mother who lives on the edge of a swamp where its always cool and damp. You may think this is the end. Well, it is. A fun counting song was “Twenty froggies went to school.” Boys and girls enjoyed the burp sound. Some of this tom foolery lives on by way of great grandparents. In spite of electronic games there are simple fun games with kitchen utensils and non dangerous shop tools. We hope that this stirred up pleasant memories. A big surprise for me – Clifton Hammon called me on his cell phone. He was enroute to Joliet via AmTrak. He had not ridden on the train since new concrete ties and new rails had been laid. He closed his conversation with “We’re coming into Lincoln.” Shirley drove up the first of the week. Grandchildren Addie and Averies sister was ill. When Cliff said Lincoln I remembered Dale and my wedding anniversary March 22, 1990. Cliff called and said, “dress warm. Mother, wear your fur coat and father your trench. We have a surprise. Meet us at the station in Springfield.” We rode in compartment 51 going to Lincoln where he had made reservations for a wedding feast for five – Jeremy was 16 and with us. We enjoyed steak, all of the trimmings, wedding cake and champagne. Coming back to Springfield we rode in compartment 52; this was ironic as these were train numbers when Dale and I eloped. That locomotive was steam fired with coal. Diesel fuel and engines for the Lincoln trip. What an advancement in 49 years of our married life.

them less Àexible. High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is what’s considered “good” cholesterol. That’s because medical experts feel HDL carries cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where cholesterol is then passed from the body. In addition, some experts also feel HDL removes excess cholesterol from arterialplaque, slowing its buildup as a result. And though cholesterol is commonly, and falsely, considered a dirty word, low levels of HDL actually increase a person’s risk of heart disease. A simple blood test can help men and women learn their HDL and LDL levels, and if they need to make any changes to get on the right track.

Five Years of Service

Pastor John and Karen Hardwick have been at Eldred Baptist Church serving as pastor for five years as of the first Sunday back in February. The church had a wonderful well-attended dinner after church on Sunday, April 10. They also celebrated pastor John’s birthday that was March 26. He received many cards, a beautiful cake, and from his niece, Patty Nord, he received a family Bible that was found in his mother’s home, that belonged to his grandmother. The Bible is from the late 1800s. It was a wonderful day for him. Everything was much appreciated.

There are two types of cholesterol, one that can make the arteries less Àexible and therefore make a person more susceptible to heart attack or stroke; and the other that actually protects against heart attack. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, which means it has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers known as lipoproteins. Low-density lipoproteins, or LDL, are considered “bad” cholesterol. When too much bad cholesterol is circulating in the blood, LDL can slowly build up on the inner walls of the arteries, possibly even teaming with other substances to form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that narrows the arteries and makes

It has a stone wall built all around it.” He chuckled when I commented, “another Jerusalem!” Maythel Armold Hunt had a big surprise – her cousin Diane Stephens of Quincy coming. Diane’s mother, Charlotte Standsfield, has been visiting with daughter, Debbie in Alabama. Later in the day, Eleanor Rose made her appearance. With flags and party hats flying and balloons floating in the breeze, Debbie Fields hosted an outdoor feast celebrating the birthday anniversary of her daughter, Beth Lynn Fields. Guests were Jim, Beth Lee, Denise and Logan Fields, Alan, Candy and Hannah Fields. Numerous friends dropped by with good wishes. Adults joined the children with the old fashioned game of hide and seek. Birthday cake decorated with Easter bunnies (made by mother rabbit) was served with ice cream. Plenty of take home food was provided by the hostess.

Now we’re saving for the Catholic Ladies. Dolly Madison, widow of U.S. President James Madison, was the first to be invited to send a message via telegraph when it was first invented. She started the first charity for needy children. She was the only lady and possibly only one to be given an honorary seat in Congress. During the month of February, Jim and Linda Story spent time in Florida. Linda enjoyed being with friends and relatives. Jim golfed. He also gloved in the Ozarks but was more excited with their trip through the city of Murfreesboro, Tenn. It was there at Stone Creek that during the Civil War the 110th Division of Illinois Union Troops under Rosecrans surrendered to the Confederate Army, Jan. 2, 1862. Jim and Linda Story drove through a Memorial Garden and found the tombstone of J. Parks, 110th Division of Illinois, May 26, 1865 the last Confederate troops surrendered. The above facts were from World Book Encyclopedia Volume 4 year of 1967 and Jim Story. Cliff told me that granddaughter, Addy, was busy changing her clothes all day.

CHURCH Eldred Baptist Church news Pastor: John Hardwick What a wonderful day in the Lord’s House this past week. We had over 100 people in attendance, and had a wonderful potluck dinner for Pastor John in honor of his birthday, and five years of service at Eldred Baptist Church. Pastor John’s message was on “New Life-The Raising of Lazarus” with scripture in John 11:1-4. We are also in the process of collecting for our home missions offering through “America for Christ”. Next Sunday will be a special Sunday, as we will be celebrating Palm Sunday. There just might be a special

Walkerville Baptist Church news

Bro. Ron Heard, Pastor What a glorious day. Jesus wept. St. John 11: 35 The message was on Lazarus and on what renewing strength we all have when Christ renews our lives and lives within us. Ladies there is something we got to do! The men outnumbered us Sunday. Keep up men. We are proud of you. Happy birthday, Patty. The children learned that the broken belt was not to beat them with. How

strong they could be. When new. The child that brings the most children Easter Sunday gets the Easter Basket. Remember Easter morning fellowship with sausage gravy and biscuits and trimmings. Any time after 9 a.m. We had one-half inch rain again Sunday night. Some corn has been planted. Colder on Monday and the ground temp is still cold. Lots of gardens started. Remember these on our prayer list; Melanie

Mast, Grace Ross, Andy Ross, Linda Ford, Darrell Ford, Delores Ford, Kim Malin, Tom Sullivan, and Eddie Phillips. When you eat at McDonalds in Jacksonville, look for Daniel. Bible school plans are in the making. Being part of the family of God makes you so happy; when one has a heartache we all shed the tears. Come and be part of that big family. We will love you too. See you in church Sunday.

Hillview Baptist Church news

No birthdays Announcements: Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. Easter morning. Bro. David Briggs brought the message last Sunday from Genesis 18 and 19. It was a very good message. Bro. Ray Briggs had charge of the

service this morning. He read scriptures from Romans 14:11-13 and Romans 10: 8-17. Bro. Ray gave us an update on the search for a pastor. This is a time consuming procedure. There are so many things to think about before hiring a pastor. Since we haven’t had to do

this for 51 years, it is quite different than it was back 50 years ago. Keep us in your prayers as we continue to search. We are confident that God will send the right person to us as we continue to carry on His word. Hope to see you in church next Sunday.

Carrollton and Christ United Methodist Church news The flowers and trees are blooming; praise God for the beauty surrounding us.

Rev. Sara Brown’s sermon last Sunday was “Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones.” Scripture lessons were from Ezekiel 37:1-6 and John 11: selected verses. Work Area Meetings will be held at Christ UMC on Thursday, April 14 at 6 and 7 p.m. A Holy Week Breakfast will be served at the Carrollton UMC Fellowship Hall on Monday, April 18 at 6:30 a.m. Please join us as we begin Holy

Believer's Baptist Church news

“I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go unto the house of the Lord.” It was wonderful to be with our church family yesterday, singing Glory to His Name, Blessed Be the Name, and Rescue the Perishing. Pastor Valentin preached from Philippians Chapter One, where Paul prayed for his friends and talked about how his trials furthered the Gospel. We should pray for other Christians the way Paul prayed: that their love would grow in knowledge and judgment. Why go to Sunday school and church? Because we love the Lord and want to learn more about

His plan for our life. The Bible helps us to be good spouses, loving parents, and obedient children; how to manage our finances, and how to reach the lost. Paul went on to say that his trials had furthered the gospel. He did not complain about being arrested, shipwrecked, or imprisoned. He was able to witness to people he never would have met. When the car breaks down, the house needs repair, you have to take a trip to the doctor, one reason may be because the Lord wants you to tell those who will help you about Jesus--that He can forgive a sinner and save him from eternal

punishment in a place called Hell. When we go through trials, let’s be thinking about who we will meet that needs to hear the gospel, and let’s tell them. If you would like to know Jesus as your personal Savior, please call Believers Baptist Church at 9423007. We would be glad to show you from the Bible how that Jesus Christ alone can save you from your sins and give you a home in Heaven. Join us for Sunday Services at 9:30 a.m.; 10:30 a.m.; 6 p.m. and on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the little red church on Woody Road.

Sunday, April 10, Cindy Pembrook welcomed everyone and announced the upcoming events for the week. Cheri Vinyard lead the songs; “4 His Glory” sang the special music, accompanied by Debbie Powell on the piano. Pastor George brought the message from John 170-26, “Jesus Prays for All Believers”. As we prepare for Easter, we rejoice because this is the day we know our hope has been sealed. That day being disciples, hours before Jesus was betrayed, He prayed. He prayed at the beginning for himself. Without sin He suffered for all our sins. He prayed for the disciples, for what was to come. The moment you receive Jesus, you come a new creature. We enter into the family of God. We are to be imitators of Jesus. There is known that is out of God’s authority. Jesus knew the disciples would go through a difficult time after He was gone. The wages of sin is death. Jesus took our sings upon Himself to the cross. We cannot manipulate God in any way. Jesus prays for you and me. We weren’t even born yet and He prayed for us. Do you have a victorious life? Only you can decide. You have to love God more every day. You need the power of the Holy Spirit; to take over your life little by little. We are called his holy people. Do people see you as Holy? We need to ask God to change us. Every day so others may see that change. If you have not opened

your heart to Jesus, do it today. God’s will for us is that all of us should be one. He is looking for unity. As Christians, we are one in Christ Jesus. Satan is the one who wants to divide the church. As a church we are to depend on God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. They work together; so should we work together. Only by the power of God in me can that oneness come to be. So that the world (co-workers, friends, family who do not know Jesus) may know that they are sinful and need Jesus and God. So that the world knows that God sent Jesus. We have the glory of God within us. Through the Holy Spirit, that is a tremendous responsibility that we can only carry by the will of God. We are the only inheritants of the glory of God. Do we deserve it? No, but Jesus made it possible. The love of God is the same as He loves His son. Wow! God sent Jesus to rescue us from Hell; to forgive us. By the power of God, you can make the right choices to let them know that Jesus is your lord and savior. Do you know Jesus? Is He your Lord and Savior? Have you been obedient to Him? Have you given your heart to Him? Give your heart to Him – today!!!! Prayer needs: please remember to for our ABC Missionaries; our Cambodia Missionary, Luke Smith; Missionaries in Haiti, our soldiers, our country’s leaders, and the leaders

Now thru May7!

Drunkenness runkenness is the penultimate work of the flesh mentioned by Paul in his epistle to the Galatians, and is the translation of the Greek word "methe." Drunkenness is a straightforward translation of the word "methe" and describes a state of intoxication due to alcohol. There can be little doubt that drunkenness is condemned throughout both the Old and New Testament, despite rationalizations to the contrary. Wine was indeed a common drink in Biblical times, but the Greek word for wine, oinos, does not distinguish between fresh grape juice and the fermented variety. Proverbs 20:1 tells us that "Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler; and whoever is led astray by it is not wise." Despite repeated injunctions against drunkenness, however, wine itself, even the fermented variety, is never strictly prohibited. Jesus and Paul very well may have drunk fermented wine, but they are never characterized as being drunk. Likewise, such a stalwart of propriety as Martin Luther is known to have enjoyed beer and wine, but was never seen drunk. Given the havoc which alcohol wreaks on our health and well-being, both individually and as a society, however, it is little wonder that drunkenness is condemned in such clear terms. We should consider whether our drinking is the moderate consumption of one of God's gifts or rises to the excess of drunkenness.

Go to the head of NG State of the District address April 18 the class with school

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press While the United States has its State of the Union address to address concerns involving the country, the North Greene School District has a similar address appropriately titled State of the District address scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, April 18 in the North Greene High School Commons. The address will be delivered by Les Stevens, Superintendent at North Greene Unit District No. 3. The public, including students, is invited to hear Stevens speak on a

wide range of topics affecting the district and education, in general. “Of primary concern will be a comparison of data on Unit 3 to data from 11 other area districts,” Stevens said. “Successes in the district will be highlighted and challenges faced by the district will be enumerated – all factors contributing to the superintendent’s vision for the District.” Stevens said he will also provide ideas for how students, teachers and staff members can partner with the North Greene community to realize this vision.

shopping smarts

Thanks to high prices and long lines, many parents dread shopping for school clothes. But shopping for school clothes doesn’t have to be a laborious task. With a little advice, parents can find the deals they desire and be in and out of the stores with plenty of time for summer fun. 1. Establish a budget. Have a set amount of money in mind for each child. He or she likely has plenty of staple items in good condition already in the closet, such as jeans and sweatshirts. School shopping should be used as a chance to add a few new items to the wardrobe to freshen it up, not to completely overhaul it. 2. Start early. Make the most of endof-summer sales on short-sleeved shirts by shopping early for school clothes. Supplement with a few long-sleeved items for the cooler temperatures when the weather starts to cool. 3. Don’t be a slave to the trends. A few accessories that pick up on today’s trends can enhance a wardrobe but should not eat up much of the budget.

Wardrobe staples that can be mixed and matched into a number of possibilities should be a top priority. Steer clear of shirts that offer graphic images or potentially offensive messages. Some schools have a zero-tolerance policy on clothing that makes a “statement.” 4. Think comfort. Don’t buy outfits based on what the mannequins are wearing. They may look good because they were dressed by a stylist. However, kids are more interested in what fits and is comfortable. Also, clothing may get a little beat-up when worn every day. So don’t spend too much on any one item. 5. Establish a time limit. Kids won’t want to go out shopping if it is going to be an all-day affair. Set a strict time limit for shopping that allows enough time to get the basics. 6. Consider catalog or online shopping. Avoid contending with the rush of other back-to-school shoppers by shopping online. Pick a store kids like and invite kids to peruse the online catalog. 10 East Broadway, Alton, IL 62002 618-462-6502 thegrapevineofalton.com Mon-Fri 10am-5pm Sat 10am-4pm Closed on Sunday

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Dr. Laurance Doyle is a Principal Investigator at NASA’s Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI). In this program he will share his insights, philosophy, and systematic approach to his work. As a Christian Scientist, Doyle brings a unique quality of thinking to scientific investigation.

COLIN BEAVAN May 5, 7:30 pm • Wanamaker Hall The No Impact Man Colin Beavan, a New York City writer and self-proclaimed “guilty liberal,” based his recent book, The No Impact Man, on a grand experiment to live one year with as little impact on the environment as possible. Understandably, the experience proved trying for Beavan’s family members, who were accustomed to their comforts. “Like Gilligan’s Island, only completely implausible”—that’s how Stephen Colbert summed up the Beavan family’s no-impact saga. Following his talk, Beavan will sign copies of his book and the accompanying documentary DVD, both of which will be sold on site. Beavan’s talk is sponsored by the Speakers Committee and the Principia Energy Coalition, a student club.
