North Greene shaves almost $280,000 off budget By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press North Greene School Board members were faced with making some deep cuts at the March 19 school board meeting to try and reduce a budget that is over half a million dollars in the red next year. In September, the board approved a budget with a projected deficit of $576,571. Action taken at the March meeting has a total savings estimated to be around $287,000. Board members voted not to replace a retiring driver’s education teacher for a savings of around $50,000 and to eliminate a parent educator position, which has an estimated savings of around $43,000. The elimination of the elementary music position saves another

$40,000. Not replacing the guidance counselor secretary is a savings of around $35,000. Replacing retiring teachers in junior high language arts and second grade with first-year teachers would save an estimated $15,000 and $12,000, respectively. An additional $5,000 savings will come from cutting a three-hour cook position. More savings will come from defunding the junior and high school stipend positions, which show an estimated savings of around $69,000. These include: eight class sponsors at the high school (two in each grade); JH/HS band director, which is an extra stipend position only and not the band director’s teaching position; three choral directors – one each at the elementary, junior high

and high schools; FFA; three head teachers – one at each level; literary club at junior high; National Honor Society, play director at the high school; Science Club at the junior high and high schools; Science Fair at the junior high and high schools; one student council sponsor at the junior high and high schools, and the yearbook sponsor. In the area of sports and coaching positions: Athletic Director at the high school (junior high duties went to assistant principal this year); two assistant football coaches; assistant volleyball coach; two assistant boys basketball coaches; assistant girls basketball coach; assistant baseball coach; combine girls track coach and boys track coach into one high school track position; assistant softball coach; poms coach/

sponsor; sixth grade boys basketball coach; sixth grade girls basketball coach; combine seventh and eighth grade boys basketball coaches into one position; combine seventh and eighth grade girls basketball coaches into one position; combine seventh and eighth grade baseball coaches into one position; combine seventh and eighth grade volleyball coaches into one position; combine sixth, seventh and eighth grade boys track coaches into one position; combine sixth, seventh and eighth grade girls track coaches into one position and high school bass fishing coach. Regarding the stipend position cuts, Superintendent Les Stevens said the board has two options as laid out by its attorney. “We can either eliminate the position or continue to have, for instance,

a freshman class sponsor and freshman class activities, but bargain to not fund the position and seek volunteers to perform the duties of a class sponsor or have a class sponsor perform duties at a reduced rate,” he said. “How those bargaining discussions, as part of our general agreement bargaining this spring/summer go, cannot be identified right now. My assumption is that the board wishes to continue to have these activities during the 2014-15 school year and have sponsors and coaches in place, either as volunteers or at a reduced rate of compensation for the extra-curricular activities, but a final decision has not been made yet on that issue.” Stevens said additional action will have to be taken by the board in that regard at the April 16 meeting.

Officers from the Greene County Sheriff’s Department along with police officers from Roodhouse and White Hall executed a search warrant on a residence located in the 200 block of West Simmons in Roodhouse on March 31 at approximately 11 p.m. “The search warrant was issued pursuant to a lengthy investigation by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the Roodhouse and White Hall police departments into the residence being used for the Unlawful Production of Methamphetamine,” Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen said. Christine R. Taylor, 20, of Roodhouse, Corey W. Murphy, 35, of Jacksonville along with a minor child belonging to Murphy were found in the residence at the time the search

warrant was executed. “The search revealed what officers believed to be an active methamphetamine lab in the house,” McMillen said. “The Roodhouse Fire Department was summoned to the scene to stand by and the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team was also called to respond due to the discovery of the meth lab and the related meth production materials and waste products.” The minor child was taken into protective custody and was later placed into protective care by the Department of Children and Family Services. Both Taylor and Murphy were booked into Greene County Jail and held on the preliminary charges of: n Aggravated Manufacturing of Methamphetamine – a Class X felony due to a minor under the age of 18 being present while meth was being produced.

Roodhouse back at odds over employee status By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press

Tempers are flaring back up in Roodhouse after the city council chose not to vote on the hiring of Tim Garner as a full-time employee with benefits after his 90-day probationary period was up. Garner had been with the city for almost 20 years when he was fired for alleged theft of overtime in 2010 under the former administration. At the Dec. 18, 2013 council meeting, Garner was rehired as a worker in the South Shop by a narrow 3-2 vote, despite other applications being received by the city, including one in-house employee. It has been past practice to give precedence to current employees when a position comes open within the city. Garner is the husband of current Alderwoman Terry Garner. She abstained from the vote to hire him in December but aldermen Jim Knox, Ralph Phillips and Barb Alred voted in favor of the hiring, while aldermen Garrett Rogers and Charlie Huffines voted against the measure.

Tim Garner was hired on Dec. 21 with a 90-day probationary period. That period was up and the utility committee spent more than an hour in closed session discussing Garner’s evaluation.

“either he's hired or he's not . i'm tired of these games we are playing here .”

Terry Garner Alderwoman

According to the city ordinance 11-1-4: All employees shall be hired as temporary employees. After successful completion of a 90-day probation period, the temporary employees status may be changed to permanent – if recommended by the department head and with the approval of the city council. While discussion on the evaluation was held in closed session during the utility committee meeting, when the

council announced no action would be taken, Alderwoman Terry Garner demanded to know why it hadn’t come up for a vote. “So is the evaluation done or what – does he still have a job?” Terry Garner asked the council members after the meeting. “So if his evaluation is over then he is a full-time worker, right?” Mayor Tom Martin said Tim Garner is still considered a temporary employee. Terry Garner wanted to know how her husband went from being a full-time employee to a temporary employee. “He was hired full-time on a 90-day probationary period and that evaluation was tonight,” Garner said. “Where do we stand – you can’t go from a 90-day probationary period to a 60-day temporary employee. Either he’s hired or he’s not. I’m tired of these games we are playing here.” Terry Garner accused Mayor Martin of being a hypocrite. “You say one thing to someone’s face and are laughing in somebody else’s face,” she said.

Roodhouse cracks down on delinquent utility customers By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press The Roodhouse City Council met in two special sessions Sunday afternoon and unanimously approved shutting off utility services to customers who do not pay their bill. Prior to the council meeting, the utility committee consisting of Barb Alred, Garrett Rogers and Charlie Huffines convened a special meeting to discuss the proposal, which would be presented at the special council meeting scheduled to follow. “My thoughts on the utility shutoffs are that the city of Roodhouse has bent over backwards over the last six months to try to lessen the burden on the citizens,” Rogers said. “We came into the fall with quite a bit of deficit on the books from our customers but we didn’t

want to run them out of town so we came up with a new utility shutoff ordinance, which we spent a lot of time and work on.” Under the ordinance, whatever the past due debt was, the city would allow the customers to pay it over a 12-month period without any interest added to the past due amount. “The catch was that if they missed one payment after they agreed to the program, they would be shut off,” Rogers said. “Immediately after that the winter hit us and it got pretty cold out so we thought we should do something to help the customers out, so we added a resolution giving them a second option where they could make reference to their last year’s utility bill for that month. That is the amount they would pay (See, UTILITIES, A2)

Carrollton OKs truck purchase for PD By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press Carrollton City Council held a special council meeting prior to its regular workshop on March 26 to handle several items of business, specifically the purchase of a vehicle for the police department. The council gave Police Chief Kenny Kallal the OK to get prices on a new vehicle for the police department at last month’s meeting. Kallal, who was on vacation, was not present at the Wednesday night meeting. Alderman Tom Wilson made a motion to purchase a 2012 F150 4x4 from Morrow Brothers in Greenfield at a cost of $27,575. The truck is a new truck. “It seems this truck is the best deal, pricewise,” Wilson told the council. “In talking with Greenfield, (who recently purchased a truck to add to its squad) it gets the same mileage as a car does over there.” Alderman Joe Harness expressed his views against the purchase of a truck instead of a car. “I’m really not in favor of a truck, but if

that’s what the chief wants,” Harness said. Wilson said he agreed with him at first, but after research changed his mind. “I was a little hesitant at first but then I started seeing them more and more,” Wilson said. “I’ve seen them in Springfield using trucks and I’m not sure the State Police aren’t running a few. Most officers running them like them.” Wilson said all of the equipment out of the Ford Explorer would transfer to the truck, saving around $2,000. “He told me the truck would be on duty around town and he would be driving the Explorer as just a basic squad,” Wilson said. Alderman Wayne Cunningham wanted to know why there were only bids on Ford vehicles. “I would like to see more bids than just from one place,” Cunningham said. “Is there some reason we don’t look at Dodge vehicles anymore?” Alderwoman Sharon Butler commented she had been told the truck would get two (See, carrolltoN, A2)

Eldred man faces Carrollton to premiere sex crime against new city website child charge By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press An Eldred man was booked into Greene County Jail on sex related charges following his arrest by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department. Marshall R. Brown, 37, was charged with Child Abandonment and Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault on March 27. According to Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen, Brown had been arrested the previous day on a charge of Unlawful Trespass to Property. While he was still in jail on this charge an employee at a business in Eldred contacted police

and said a child, who appeared to be around 8 years of age, had come into the store. “They said the child had come into the store looking for help because his parent had left home and had not come back,” McMillen said. “While he was committing the act of Trespass and getting arrested, he had left the child at home.” Brown was later booked on a charge of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse after sheriff’s deputies uncovered evidence he had allegedly sexually abused a child who was known to him. Bond was set at $5,000 cash and he remains in Greene County Jail.

Methamphetamine Waste – a Class 2 felony. n Methamphetamine Related Child Endangerment – a Class 2 felony due to a minor under the age of 18 being present while meth was being produced. n Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Hypodermic Needles – a Class A misdemeanor. Both Taylor and Murphy are being held without bail at the Greene County Jail awaiting the filing of formal charges by the Greene County State’s Attorney’s Office and a bail hearing in Greene County Circuit Court.

Carrollton City Council approved the purchase of a new website domain which will make it much easier for residents to access the city’s website. The new web address will be carrolltonil.net. According to City Clerk Ryan Scott, for the past five years the city has utilized a free website through weebly.com, which required a long domain name be entered to access it. “I’d like to see more people get on our website, and I think what is holding it up is because of the length of the domain name,” Scott said. “Right now, our website is not very efficient because people can’t remember it. With this we will be getting carrolltonil.net and it will be much more memorable for people to use.” Scott has already been making many improvements to the current website. “I’ve added a business page and actually linked the businesses own pages to the website so you can go from our business page directly to the page of the business,” Scott said. “Some of the businesses here have websites that I wouldn’t have thought would have one.” Since taking office in May of last year, Scott has been posting the minutes from the monthly meetings

and updating ordinances which can now be accessed online. “With this new website I would like to put up some documents which can be downloaded like business applications,” Scott said. “We are having people use the website and I think we would have even more people use it if we get the shorter name and get more stuff up on it.” Alderwoman Sharon Butler, who had been in charge of the website before Scott took office, agreed that the website is a good idea. “I got a call the other day that the minutes of our last meeting hadn’t been posted when Ryan was on vacation,” Butler said. “So I know people are using it.” Scott presented two options to the council – a one-year subscription for $39.95 or sign up for a 10-year term at a one-time cost of $249. This represented a 37 percent savings over the yearly cost of the website. The council opted for the 10-year term. Scott said it would be a while before the new website domain name took effect. Until that time, anyone wishing to visit the Carrollton website can go to carrolltonil.weebly. com. The website also contains information about news items regarding the city along with events and happenings occurring within the city.

(Continued from A1) Mayor Martin had city attorney John Hurst explain the ordinance to Terry Garner. “Your ordinance says that all employees shall be hired as temporary employees,” Hurst said. “After successful completion of a 90-day probationary period, the temporary employee status may be changed to permanent if recommended by department heads and with the approval of the council.” It is the lack of recommendation from the department head which prevented the subject from even coming up for a vote in the regular council meeting. “There was no recommendation,” Hurst said. “He can’t be made a permanent employee without a recommendation of the department head and approval of city council – those two things had to happen first and they didn’t.” Terry Ross is the superintendent of utilities. The mayor explained to Terry Garner that the council could take a vote on it but based on the poll of all the aldermen present at the committee meeting, the vote would be 3 for hiring him and 3 against, or in other words a tie. “So we got this done without even a vote,” Garner said. “How is it a tie if you didn’t even vote?” Mayor Martin pointed out that it was her council’s decision not to vote. “There was no vote to get,” Martin said. “Your council did not want to vote.” Rogers added more to the explanation. “We had all the players here in this room during the committee meeting,” Rogers said. “So, we polled them and asked them where they were on it after hearing all of this – would you vote

Utilities (Continued from A1) versus the high utility bill of this year. The difference between those two bills would again be amortized for six months starting in April.” Rogers said while there was some participation in the programs, it was not as great as they were hoping for. “I think as a committee and as a council we have really gone out of our way to try to be fair – to try to get people caught up and try to meet them half way,” Rogers said. “At this point we are still having some repeat offending going on and we are not collecting the amount we need to be collecting.” On Thursday, city workers turned off utilities to 21 customers who had outstanding bills with the city. By Sunday evening, all but six of those customers had come in and signed up for one of the programs to help them catch up on their bills. However, the six people who did not come to city hall owe, collectively, more than $20,000 in utility services to

the city. “Part of the problem was the shutoff days, (26th of each month) landed on very cold days so we weren’t able to shut people off due to the regulations regarding cold weather,” Rogers said. “But, following that, it appears that we didn’t go ahead and follow through on our shutoffs when we did have decent weather.” Rogers said that on Monday any customers who are still in default of any of the programs they have signed up for will have their water shut off. “That will be a fair warning that we are serious and that they should come up here and sign up for one of these utility relief programs that we have offered,” Rogers said. “If they don’t come up by Tuesday, I recommend we shut off all the utilities.” Huffines agreed with Rogers. “We have some programs out there to help them out,” he said. “We offer level pay, the ability to spread their past due amount over a year, and then the latest

this way or would you vote that? The vote was split which means nothing would happen anyway so there was no sense on voting on nothing to happen. It’s actually more beneficial this way because he has still got a job.” Garner will continue working for the city as a temporary employee unless the council should vote to terminate him. “So, he will get no insurance for working 40 hours per week because he’s only a temporary employee?” Terry Garner asked. “Is that cool with the labor board – work 40 hours a week and not have insurance? I’m calling the labor board tomorrow morning.” Rogers questioned this move. “You’re an alderman and you are going to call the labor board against the city you represent?” he said. Tim Garner said he would be the one making the call to the labor board. “I want answers,” Tim Garner

one where they could pay last year’s bill for the month and make the difference up over a six-month period. If they haven’t done any of those three, they aren’t going to do anything. Alred also thought it was a good idea. “I’d like to propose we do this because how long can we keep making deals and sitting up here and calling meetings and them not even acknowledge that we are trying to help them out?” she said. Huffines, without revealing the customer’s name, pointed out that one customer has made only three payments in the last year. Their last payment was made in February, but they currently owe the city $4,500. Another customer had a $5,400 outstanding bill. “They know that they have a utility bill,” Alred said. “If you got a car and you go to the filling station and fill it up with gas, do you drive off and say, ‘I’ll pay you later?’ No, you pay for it then and there and it should be the same way with the utilities. We have to pay our supplier, regardless. These bills didn’t get this

said. “On my evaluation, you would think I would be included in it. I mean I never heard of anybody ever getting an evaluation without representation. You should be there if you are in trouble for something.” Tim Garner was not allowed in the discussion on his evaluation. “I still don’t know what I did,” he said. “Terry Ross (Department Head) said I did a wonderful job – I showed up on time – I worked through my dinner and breaks and I haven’t been arguing with anybody.” Terry Garner agreed. “It would have been more fair if he had been able to sit in on his evaluation before it was brought to the council,” she said. Rogers said that was one reason he is still working. “That was the best argument that the other people had on the other side of the argument– that he should have been in on it,” Rogers said.

high overnight – they have gotten away with it for years and they are going to continue until we put a stop to it.” If customers are in arrears and have not signed up for one of the programs offered by the city, then to get their utilities turned back on they must do so. If they are already signed up for a relief program and are in default on it, they have to get current with that agreement. That doesn’t mean they have to pay the entire back bill – it just means they have to come current with the program and if they can do that their utilities will be turned back on. For example, if a customer’s bill is $500 and they were on an agreement to pay $100 a month on their past due amount, then they would have to pay the city at least $600 to come current with the agreement. “This is their last chance,” Rogers said. “If you do it again next month you are going to be shut off again and we don’t turn them back on until they become current with their agreement.”

City Attorney Hurst, however, said that the law states that as a temporary employee he doesn’t have the right to sit in on his evaluation. “If I was doing something wrong then why didn’t he (Ross) speak up and say, ‘Hey you need to be taking breaks or something,’ ”Tim Garner said. Rogers agreed. “I understand the argument – that is why I agreed to do what we did,” he said, referring to allowing Tim Garner to stay on the payroll as a temporary employee. Terry Garner left the council chamber with the following last words. “You all need to get to the bottom of the real problem which lies within this city instead of just smoothing it over,” she said. “Instead, it just never gets brought up. This is why I ran for alderman. We don’t need these employee problems here.”

She was also for looking at other models. “I think they are really pressing now,” Cunningham said. “If they are hurting for a vehicle they are not going to have any vehicles out there if one of them goes down while we are looking. Otherwise, I would rather see more bids.” The motion passed 5-to-1 with Duane Freand casting the only dissenting vote. At the request of City Treasurer Debbie Dunlap, the council approved transferring surcharge money from the water customer deposits account to the maintenance account and renaming this account the Maintenance and Surcharge account.

present account. “Customer deposits cannot earn interest or it gets very complicated,” Dunlap said. “But since the surcharge revenue is also placed in this account, it doesn’t draw interest either. By moving the customer surcharge revenue into the maintenance account, it will be able to draw interest.” Dunlap said the surcharge portion of the account has about $16,000 in it, which would be transferred to the interest bearing maintenance account. Approximately $2,800 a month is deposited into the surcharge account to be used for permits and water testing. The council authorized Public Works Director Mike Snyder to look into the cost of getting a replacement bed, either used or new, for the 1989 truck used by the street department. Snyder told the council that the current bed has been deemed beyond repair.

GFWC Director of Junior Clubs Rebecca Weber of Metamora and Golden Eagle, recently completed the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life Champions Summit in Washington, DC. The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is partnering with Shot@ Life, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that educates, connects and empowers Americans to help protect children in developing countries from vaccine-preventable diseases. Every 20 seconds a child dies from a vaccine-preventable disease. Pneumonia and diarrhea are the leading causes of death for children worldwide. Polio has recently reemerged in areas that had been polio-free for years and measles still kills an estimated 330 people each day – the majority of whom are young children. During the Summit, Dennis Ogbe, U.S. Paralympian and UNICEF Polio Advocate shared his inspiring story of regaining the use of his right leg after contracting polio that had left him completely paralyzed from the waist down. Dennis is an inspiration and a testimony that nothing is impossible and he truly believes that no child should have to overcome disability from polio.

GREENE PRAIRIE PRESS

St. John’s receives grant from IDNR By carmen ensinger Greene Prairie Press Thanks to a grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), students in grades two through five at St. John’s School in Carrollton will be going on a field trip to the Nature Institute in Godfrey in May. The IDNR awarded more than $96,000 in Illinois Biodiversity Field Trip Grants to 103 schools in 42 counties. These grants were made possible through private donations and will assist more than 7,700 students to visit Illinois state parks, museums and other natural recourses sites to learn about nature and conservation. “This program allows students to visit locations throughout the state to see first-hand what they’ve been learning about in the classroom,” IDNR Director Mark Miller said. “These grants help facilitate a whole new world for students who may not otherwise have such an opportunity and they support the goal of leaving no child inside.” St. John’s Principal Julie Lake said the grant application was submitted by one of the teachers. “One of our teachers found out about this grant and filled out the application for it and we were notified we received it the other day,” Lake said. “The grants were made available to teachers in Illinois for the purpose of studying some aspect of Illinois’ biodiversity. The only stipulation was that the field trip had

to take place in Illinois.” Funding is administered by the Illinois Conservation Foundation and covers expenses such as the costs of transportation and substitute teachers. St. John’s was awarded a grant in the amount of $430 for a four-hour field trip. They chose the Nature Institute in Godfrey for several reasons. “We chose the Nature Institute because we have taken our students there for several years and feel that it is a very worthwhile educational trip,” Lake said. “It is also close to home so we can get there and back within the school day. Although many people are unaware of its existence, we are very fortunate to have this wonderful Nature Institute so close to home.” As a parochial school, St. John’s receives no funding from the state meaning they receive no additional funding for anything extra such as field trips.

“Most of our field trip expenses get passed on to our parents,” Lake said. “Therefore, with rising costs – especially in transportation, we have to keep asking parents to cover more or cut back on our trips. Because we have received this grant, we will still be able to take the field trip without passing on the expense to the parents.” The four-hour field trips will give the students a hands-on approach to science. They will hike, listen to and locate different birds, identify different trees, capture insects and look for and identify animal tracks. They will also have the experience of getting different specimens out of the pond and identifying their stages of growth. Students will learn the elements of habitat, the animals that live in various habitats and what these animals require to survive. Lake said the sixth through eighth graders will be treated to a field trip to Cahokia Mounds in May thanks to a grant received from Target.

Greenfield First Baptist Church news The service on March 30, 2014, was a time of worship and great singing. Then Pastor John led the congregation in a time of prayer. Please also continue to pray for the people on the long term prayer list: Bonnie Ballard, Janet Barren, Dan Bauer, Kobe Brannan, Shannon Burch, Marvin Cline, Jean Coates, Becky Cochran, Roland Custer, Matt Harpole, Bob Harr, Rex Harr, Margaret Henson, Ralph Henson, Gary Jacobs, Jeff Johnson, Mary Jennings, John Kittselman, Patty Knittel, Rae Lomelino, Lindell Mesey, Caroline Moran, Roger Moss, TimMoulton, Teresa Newell, Aspyn Pate, W.D. Pembrook, Red Bud Church, Bob Plogger, Hadley Ruyle, Joy Settles, David Stendebach, Shirley Suttles, Bobbi Jo Waters, Khloe Wilkinson. Pray for out shut-ins: Louise Baldes, Pearl Burnette, Maxine Booth, Mabel Cole, Eileen Scott, Mary Borcky, Dorothy Converse, Jolleen Scott. Pastor John brought the message Leave the Boat, from Luke 5:1-11. When we look at the end, we go back to the beginning for perspective. This is no chance encounter. There is no such thing as a coincidence with God. Jesus was there for a reason. History of Jesus’ ministry to this point: Wilderness, Nazareth and tried to kill him, Capernaum and demon possessed man and Simon’s mother-in-law. So, Jesus makes the initiative and gets in the boats with fisherman in order to avoid the impending crowds. Notice how Jesus gets the fishermen involved doing something first. He gets the fisherman to take him out in the water so he can preach. A good way to get someone to believe is to ask them to get involved in a small way first. Simon was tired and frustrated from a hard night of unproductive fishing. So many people we meet are just tired and need a rest. Life is hard and the way things are going are just not working. They can find that rest in Jesus. Matthew 11:2829, ““Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Simon had just heard Jesus preach to the people. Jesus’ message in the early days was very simple. Matthew 4:17, “From that time on Jesus began to preach, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.’” Simon was tired, but he could see something different. This man spoke with authority. This man was unique and there was power and conviction in his voice. There was a passion in his heart that shown through. “Okay,” Simon says, “I am tired but because I can see you are a man of conviction and character, I will do what you ask. But I know we are not going to catch anything. After all, I am the fisherman here.” Simon is willing to take just a little step of faith and try. “Just let the nets down real quick and then I will be done.” And that is how faith and trust are built, one little step

at a time. This time, I will pray before I eat. This time, I will stop and think before I post to Facebook. This time, I will check in on them with a text or phone call. This time, I will read my bible because it is 4 AM and I cannot sleep and TV stinks at this hour. This time I will believe that God thinks I am worthy to send his Son to die and I am not going to believe the lie this world that says I am unworthy. Simon takes a small step and he and the others lets down the nets. “Give it a try and see what happens.” Look at how God honors the action of faithful people! That is what faith is, belief in action. And the catch was so awesome, it about sank their boats. God’s blessings, when he pours them out on us, are too much for us to handle and they spill over to others. These blessings are reserved for the faithful who trust in God by what they do. When this happens, Simon realizes his own sin. See the message of Jesus was for sinners to repent. Simon realized he did not deserve such a great blessing; that this was a by-product of the grace of God. Humbleness comes from God and is present at anyone’s true repentance. Isaiah 66:2, “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.” Simon knew he did not deserve what the Lord was giving him. Maybe that is why doing the next thing made so much sense to him, but is so hard for us to fathom. Simon left it all to follow Jesus; the great catch of fish that he had that would change his life; his job that he used to provide for his family. And James and John did not have to go. They could have kept all the fish too. After all, it was Simon’s mother-in-law that was healed, not theirs. It was Simon who was telling them this story and they believed it and wanted to be part of it. “This is the same guy I was telling you about. He is the one who helped my mother-in-law. He helped that demon-possessed crazy guy at the synagogue. He is the one who caused all the fish to come and the nets to break. He is the one that said I could be a fisher of men. He is the Man! He is asking us to leave everything and follow him. Are you in?” This is the first recorded testimony of the Gospel and the life-changing power of Jesus in the Bible. A testimony does not have to be fancy or eloquent or follow the napkin model of the Roman’s Road. It has to be heartfelt, sincere, and powerful enough to make the change in our lives’ first. We have to practice what we preach if others are going to follow. If we are going to follow Jesus, we have to get out of the boat. The boat is comfort. The boat is what we know. The boat is the past. The boat is security. The boat is the old. The boat may be riches. It is definitely what is familiar. Are you ready to leave the boat and follow the Jesus who is calling you?

Eldred Baptist Church news Don Carpenter – Interim Pastor As reported by Mary Eustace Spring ?...Spring ?...Where are you? We are all anticipating the fresh spring air and warmer days. With Spring, we welcome the world coming alive and days filled with many blessings from our Lord and Savior. This Sunday March 30th , our Pastor Don brought to us continued sermons on the Book of John. He asked us if we remember why John is writing this gospel account. John 20:31 “... but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” When we are in the presence of our Lord, we are held accountable for the truths we learn. John 11: 27 is one of the most profound confessions of faith..... Jesus presents himself..” I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even through he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11: 40..Seeing is not believing...believing is seeing! How is God glorified in the Son of God? By believing in His name... trusting in Jesus Christ...it’s always

been about TRUST.... it’s always been about FAITH!! Philippians 2: 9-11 reveals the glory of God the Father is the glory of His Son...The glory of the Son is that every knee will bow..every tongue confess...that Jesus Christ is Lord. Do you believe? Have you believed? Will you believe? Our church serves a Children’s Ministry supper and a lesson on Jesus each Wednesday evening at 6 pm for all local children. Our church has a dedicated Bible Study Group that meets every Thursday morning at 10 am. A new class will be starting and if you are interested, please call Thea Adcock at (217) 983-2724 .Our Sunday services include Sunday School at 9 am for adults and children’s classes and regular services at 10 am.

Hillview Baptist Church news Bro. Jason Holliman, Pastor Alice Ford, reporter ANNOUNCEMENTS: Glen Gobel will be in concert at our church on Saturday, Apr. 5 at 6:30 p.m. Bro. Jason is speaking at a Revival at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church this week. Our church Movie night will be Saturday April 12 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone Welcome. Special Music: Jeri Stewart sang “Holy is the Lord” MESSAGE: Psalms 1. The only way to live a Godly life is through Jesus Christ. We are to judge sin but we do not condemn the person who sins. If they reject Jesus Christ they condemn themselves. Satan cannot

stand before a Holy God. We need to go to church Because we love Jesus. We should be excited to spend time with Him. We don’t serve a dead God. We need to meditate on the word of God & do what it says. If we did our church could be full. People can come to church to be healed spiritually and physically. There are two judgments. Christians will be judged for what they’ve not done for Jesus but sinners will be judged and if they haven’t Accepted Jesus, they will be condemned. Which are you? Hope to see you next Sunday.

Walkerville Baptist Church news March came in like a lion and went out like a lion. Peace with April now, we hope. We had a good group at church but missed those who were not there. You missed a real blessing. The message was from Matthew 12: 8. Heaven will be worth it all. No one can describe heaven because no one has been there and came back, but it is without words the most beautiful place we have ever been. I am going, I hope you are. Our prayer list is Anne Ford, Melanie Mast, Betty Newman, Ray and Patty Baldes, Grace Ross, Robert Lawson, the Schutz family. We pray for all the farmers’ safety as they are headed to the fields, they will be working day and night. Our Cemetery Benefit went really well. There were 140, more or less, that went through the line to eat. The food was so good and the pies were so many different kinds it was hard to pick. Thanks all you ladies that sent pies, we really appreciate them all and the cakes were appreciated also. The music was so good! There is nothing like them good old hymns. They did a really good concert and Ed hang in there, you are one of the best. Don’t let them tell you any different. The Silent Auction was fine and the drawing drew a large crowd to see who was going to win and Delores Wear of Hillview was the lucky winner. Good eating Delores! The results of the raffle was somewhere around $3800 plus. Still coming in, but best we have ever done. Thanks to all you good people that came. There were people there from Edwardsville, Carlinville, Alton, Jacksonville and even the state of Georgia. Also Moro. We thank

God Did Not Bring The Wisdom Death Into of Old Folks the World

It is worthwhile spending time with folks who have "been around the block a time or two." Older folks have been around long enough to have picked up some valuable wisdom along the way. I recently heard Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer being In the first chapter of the Wisdom interviewed, and he mentioned that his father of Solomon we are told two didn't give much advice, which is usually very amazing things: God did wise, but that before he died he told him to not make death and there are stay on the payroll and to do your job, i.e., to death is perhaps life, and life no unwholesome substances do your job well. That reminds me of more my abundantly. Likewise, the in nature. The passage runs something father always said, which was counter-intuitive claim that there as follows: “God Wisdom is with the did aged,not make to always give your employer an honest no destructive poison in the death, and he does and understanding in not delight day'siswork.

everyone who helped in any way. The question for next Sunday is: “Who walked on earth, talked on earth, told a man of his sine, who died and never went to heaven or hell and never will”. Look in Numbers 22. The answer to last week’s question “Who died but was never born”? was Adam and Eve. And “who was born but never died”? Enoch and Elijah. Have next week’s answers ready. Angels exist only sometimes, they haven’t gotten wings and we call them friends. Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons. We miss you when you are not there. Just remember we love you and so does Jesus. See you Sunday.

Calvary Baptist Church March 30. Bro. Brad welcomed everyone and made the announcements: April 1, Bible Study tonight at 7 p.m.; potluck after morning worship; Ladies Bible Study tonight at 6 p.m. led by Sis. Donna; April 16 Business meeting at 7 p.m.; April 20 Easter Sunday Sunrise service at 6 a.m. at White Hall Rez with men fixing breakfast afterward. Sunday school report by Sis Mary. Bro. Brad accompanied by Sis. Donna led congregation in singing hymns. Penny March as children went downstairs for church with Sis. Cindy as leader. Message by Bro. Johnny Renkin - Joshua 24: 15. Choose you this day whom ye will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served or the gods of the Amorites, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. We all make choices. Are you truly serving God or others? Jonah made a choice while in the stomach of a big fish. The Bible never grows old because every generation makes choices. There are all kinds of false Gods, but only one true God. Matthew 10: the rich young ruler chose not to give up his wealth, so he didn’t serve the Lord. We cannot serve two masters, whether we will hate the one and love the other. There is no middle ground. When we choose to follow Jesus the devil is always

around to tempt us to do wrong things. We need to make a choice who we will serve today, as we aren’t promised a tomorrow. Sunday evening: Message by Bro. Baxter - Matthew 24: 1-14. Jesus disciples came to him, to show him the buildings of the temple. Jesus told them it would be destroyed. The disciples ask when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world? Jesus told them to let no man deceive them. Ye shall hear of wars, nation shall rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, famines, earthquakes, pestilences. Be not troubled for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, then shall the end come. Please pray for the lost, the sick, those in nursing homes and hospitals, the bereaved, traveling mercies, our troops and their families, our country and our leaders, all the disasters, and one another. Times of services: Sunday school, 9:30 a.m.; Sunday morning worship, 10:30 a.m.; Sunday evening service, 7 p.m.; Tuesday evening Bible Study, 7 p.m.; and Wednesday evening Prayer and Bible study, 7 p.m.

William (Bill) Lee Culbreth, age 74, of Centralia, died on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. He was born on Sept. 22, 1939, in White Hall, the son of William Oral and Edith Leah (Axley) Culbreth. Bill graduated from White Hall High School in 1957, and moved to Centralia, when he married Marlyn Rude on Dec. 23, 1960. Bill graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Civil Engineering. He worked for the State of Illinois and Blaise before becoming employed in Hospital Engineering for Centralia St. Mary’s Hospital, Murray Center and Belleville Memorial Hospital from where he retired. Bill had many other occupations and past-times. He served many years as a Marion County Deputy Coroner, transported and cared for countless patients as part of an ambulance crew, instructed Heating and Air Conditioning for Rend Lake College, and served as past President of The Southern Illinois Chapter for Hospital Engineers. He was probably most remembered throughout the community as “the piano man”. He played in bands from a very early age and continued to perform throughout Southern Illinois and Eastern Missouri up until his passing. He sang and played all types of music through any keyboard instrument ranging from piano, organ, and most recently MIDI keyboard technology. He produced many CD’s of both his own music and others in his studio, Until Eleven Music Studio. He was a mentor to many young musicians and vocalists, even teaching piano lessons in his retirement. He was a man of great humanity, providing acts of service and kindness to all he met. He spent years working on the records and indexes that tell the history of Centralia’s Elmwood Cemetery, and because of this was awarded the Studs Terkel Humanities Award in 2009 through the Illinois Humanities Council. He was involved in numerous plays through the Centralia Cultural Society, through acting and musical performance. His most challenging act of service was playing and recording the entire score for “Jesus Christ Superstar” in 2013, as he used the most up-to-date keyboarding technology, painstakingly entering each single note, background instrumentation, and sound effects to create the final masterpiece, taking him weeks of 40 plus hour sets. His most loved performance was playing keyboard for his daughter, Kelly, during her Sogno Project Show at Kaskaskia College in September 2013. A most cherished memory, as it was his last performance with her. Bill served as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Physical Facilities Representative; was a lifetime member of the Elks Club, was an avid genealogist; loved photography, tending flower gardens, Facebook friends; and showed great ability and wit in his writing skills. Bill served each year as a Judge for Central City School Science Fair, and always set up and tested the sound equipment for Central City’s annual Crazy Cultural Night. Bill enjoyed the world of pageantry and served as a coach and mentor to many contestants, as well as a pageant judge. Bill had a love for his country, was very patriotic, and was always up for a good political debate. Over the years, Bill has enjoyed hanging out at many of the local coffee shops with all his coffee buddies. Bill’s beloved companion was his dog, Socks, and

Cards of Thanks

Thank You The family of the late Mayme Elizabeth Davis would like to extend a sincere thank you to our many family members and friends who offered such kindness and comfort in our bereavement. Your expressions of sympathy, food, flower arrangements, cards, phone calls, and visits in Mayme’s memory are truly appreciated. A special thank you to Pastor Rex Beard, White Hall Multi-care Center and Airsman-Hires Funeral Home. Mayme will forever be in our hearts. Thank You On Mar. 30, 2013 James Gibson Esarey drew his final breath with us on this great Earth. It is difficult to believe that it has been a year since the events of that day unfolded. As many of you can imagine and have experienced yourselves, things are just not the same without seeing him appear to greet us for the day, grinning, as he usually was, from ear to ear. Our family wishes to extend a tremendous debt of gratitude to everyone in the community who has assisted us during this time of transition into the next phase where we only have memories, and not his physical presence, in our lives. Continuing the business and legacy he left has been a great task made exponentially easier by the helpfulness and kindness of each one of you. May your seasons ahead be filled with the optimism and successes that our father, husband, brother, and friend, Jim Esarey, shared with us all. The Family of James Esarey Thank You The family of Robert Pembrook would like to express our gratitude to all who gave support and comfort during our loss. Thank you for the flowers, memorials, food, cards, calls and prayers. Our family is blessed to have so many wonderful friends to help us through this sad time. All your many acts of kindness will not be forgotten.

he could be seen riding his bike with a leashed Socks on their many escapades to run at Elmwood Cemetery and Foundation Park. There was little Bill couldn’t fix, remodel, or figure out how it worked. He loved tinkering in his garage and on the computer. He as well continually helped others remedy their computer issues and set up security alarm systems. He enjoyed being involved with both his and his wife’s high school reunions and webpages. His last act of service was serving as a Music merit badge counselor at a Boy Scout Merit Badge Day the Saturday before his passing. Bill, above all, loved his family. They truly were his pride and joy. He is survived by his wife, Marlyn, of 53 years; daughters Dana Diane Waggoner and husband Steve of Salem, and Kelly Lee Culbreth of Murfreesburo Tenn.; grandchildren Brock Steven Waggoner of Greenville, Miss., Breann Lynette Duffin and husband Philip of Aberdeen, Idaho, Brook Marie Lewis and husband Mitch of Salem, and Beau Jacob Waggoner of Iuka; great-grandchildren Hunter, Jade, and Jackson Duffin, of Aberdeen, Idaho, and Kaolin, Parker and Porter Lewis of Salem,; a sister-in-law, Betsy Rude of Centralia, nieces Linda Mijal and husband Phil of Woodridge, Charlene Smith and husband Steve of Centralia, great niece Jennifer Moll and husband Justin of Bridgeton, Mo., and great nephew Chris Smith and wife Rachel of Bridgeton.

When elephants live in a zoo they are watered four times per day. Ten gallons each time. Their trunk holds two gallon. After filling their trunks, they put the water into their mouth. Sawyerville, Illinois has a new citizen - a baby. Amelia Burger of Greenfield is the great-grandmother. My son, Clifton D. Hammon works in the Alzika Building in Springfield. Frequently there is a fundraiser for the needy. There is especial kind of delicious bread sold at a specific shop in Bloomington, so Saturday he and his wife Shirley drove to Bloomington. It was a warm sunny day, so they took advantage of getting out of the car at the Sugar Maple Forest where the trees were being tapped. The worker in the store told them the amount needed to boil down for syrup to make a pint. Of course they purchased a bottle. Pour some on a salad plate - slice an apple; dip and eat. I kid you not, it is delicious. Clifton was about four years old when his father and I visited that syrup plant. Carol Kay Jennings, daughter of Robert and Dorothy Tipp Jennings was going to be married at the Presbyterian Church in Briarwood, Ill. We rented a motel as we were going to say for the nighttime reception. The wedding was formal and beautiful. The first reception included the toast, wedding dance, canapés and wedding cake. Carol used to tease me about my name being Love. She didn’t know that she would marry Willie Love whose grandpa was a first cousin of my grandfather William Love. As a gift we took linens - the gift that stole the show were down pillows that my mother Caroline (Carol’s aunt) and I made. When mother and Uncle Robert were children they assisted their mother with plucking goose feathers. These were made into feather beds for each to take to their home when married. I bought yellow decorated ticking from Hamilton’s Dry Good Store to make the pillows. We had made pillows for showers of my friends Mildred Melvin, Eileen Rands Brown and Florine Baker Nash. Yesterday Clifton informed me of the death of our Colorado physician, Dr. Walter Watts. He was a tall, rugged, handsome, osteopathic, friendly surgeon. When my mother was living with Mel the doctor would occasionally bring his wife and her mother down to visit. He always stayed and had a good time. Mother played the piano for singing. Fountain Valley High School Trojans were having their graduation. Our great-nephew, Joshua Hollie was on to the 500 graduates - it was beautiful - outside at the foot of the Cheyenne Mountains. Dale, Mel and I were right

there, along came Dr. Watts, “Here’s my Greenfield family.” His son was graduating. Farewell good friend! After enjoying pork chops at Wagner’s Courtesy Dinner at St. Michael’s Catholic Hall, Michael Cole of Scottville knocked at my door. Debbi Fields, my caretaker invited him to come inside. He introduced himself, said he enjoyed my column. He said that I used to write about his grandma Mabel Kinser Cole. She is 103, the widow of Allen Cole who was the eldest son of George and Margaret Secor Cole. Mike, as he calls himself, is married to Bonnie Adams of Rockbridge. She and her brother Mike were reared in the home of Esther Stelle. My cousin, Virginia Boyd Fanning (d) and her husband owned a filling station in Scottville. Back in those days men in small towns would buy their gas, “loaf” awhile, take a candy bar and news home to their wife. Uncle Homer Jennings spent most of his growing up years on a farm at the northwest corner of Scottville with his parents Benjamin and Gabriella Kincaid Jennings. The Camdens live there now. Mike and Bonnie Cole reside across the road. One winter day, Aunt Nancy Jennings baked a raisin pie and fixed a thermos of coffee for Uncle Homer to take to the filling station in Scottville. He came for Uncle Paul Overbey - Aunt Allie sent, ham, a pot of beans and cornbread for sharing. This became a weekly tradition after the Labor Day picnic. Michael Cole is the son of Gale and Joyce Allen Cole. My sister taught Joyce at Liberty (Short) School. Quite early yesterday morning my phone rang. “Hello great-grandma, I love you more. Daddy and I are hanging out today”. It was Averiee Cole Crumley. Ayden and Addisson had gone to school. Her mother had classes and daddy had the day off. Jeremy had arranged to have Thursday free. He and I had a good visit. Nearly fifty years ago Paula Brandt was den mother of the first Cub Scout Troop in Greenfield - Tim Andrews, Bill Brandt, Clifton Hammon, Keith Sjesterand and Mark Longmeyer were the members. Recently I took Clifton’s uniform out of the cedar chest and sent it home with him. May I remind you my friends - I do not sit by my telephone. Sometime it takes me ten rings to get there. Amelia Burger, her son-in-law, Michael and daughter, Lois Shipley drove to Paducah, Ky.

WHPD Easter egg hunt tradition in its 15th year By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press It may not seem like too long ago that White Hall Police Department hosted its first ever Easter Egg Hunt in Lions Park, but this year will mark the 15th anniversary of one of the most popular and most attended hunts in the area. The tradition began in 1999, coordinated by former White Hall police chief and now Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen. Current White Hall Police Chief Jack Wallis has continued the tradition with this year’s hunt scheduled for Saturday, April 12 at Lions Park.

The concession stand will open at 11 a.m., serving hamburgers, hot dogs, soda and chips, all priced at 75 cents each. “We try to keep the food at low prices so that families can afford to treat their entire family to a meal at a cheap price,” Wallis said. “Much of the food is donated. This year the hamburgers are being donated by People’s Bank and Trust.” With more than 5,000 candyand prize-filled eggs distributed among four different age groups, it may be one of the largest hunts in the area. “It takes us about three weeks to get ready for the event,” Wallis said. “We have a lot of people,

Randolph, David Fines, Michael E. Beyers, John Gardner and Michael M. Trexler. During the report of operations, John Gardner, president and CEO, explained that 2013 was a successful year for Peoples Bank & Trust and recognized the board, management and employees for their contributions to bank’s success. Gardner recognized Robert Zueck and Barry Heaton who are both retiring from the board of directors after over 15 years of service. Gardner discussed their contributions to the bank, “Each of them have displayed a passion for the bank’s mission, acted as independent thinkers that work well with groups, and shared their community knowledge and management skills to make the bank successful.” Gardner reported that the bank generated record earnings, maintained fundamental strengths and completed integration of banks recently acquired in a very challenging environment. Gardner explained, “Despite the challeng-

ing interest rate environment and the costs of regulatory change, credit quality improved, customer satisfaction levels were maintained, new technology was implemented, and our newer branches are operating consistently with our older branches.” Gardner also reported that during 2013, net income increased from $5.310 million to $5.475 million. Net income per average share also increased from $16.25 to $16.80, resulting in an increase in book value per share from $74.52 to $77.23.

Illinois to receive federal specialty crop grant money Applications for the funds are due May 1 Submitted photo

National PAS is celebrating its 34th anniversary and includes 6,500 members from 57 chapters located in 18 states. Membership is available to postsecondary students in agriculture, agribusiness and natural resources programs in approximately 550 institutions in all 50 states.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) now is accepting proposals for federal specialty crop grants. The agency has been notified Illinois will receive a share of the funds and instructed to begin the proposal selection process. The exact amount of its award, however, has not been determined. “Expanding access to nutritious, homegrown Illinois food is one of the department’s top priorities,” Agriculture Director Bob Flider said. “If we could increase local

food purchases to just 10 percent of our grocery bill, it would generate more than 20 billion dollars in new economic activity every year, create thousands of jobs in the farming and food industries and revitalize both rural and urban communities.” The funds will come from the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program in the new Farm Bill. Most recently, Illinois has been receiving about $600,000 a year and using the funds to open new markets for fresh, Illinois-grown produce.

Premier Bank South has donated the candy and eggs this year for the event.” In addition to the candy, 50 of the eggs will contain a special prize – some of which have been donated by area businesses and some purchased with funds raised from the previous year’s hunt. “We start collecting right away after each hunt for the next one,” Wallis said. “All money we bring in this year will go right back in for next year’s hunt.” The Farmer’s State Bank Easter Bunny will arrive at the park on the fire engine at 12:30 p.m. and

will be available for pictures with children throughout the day. The hunts are divided up into four separate age groups and held in different areas of the park. The first hunt for the 1-year-olds and under is set to begin at 1 p.m. immediately followed by hunts for children ages 2 and 3, then 4 to 6 and finally 7 to 9. “The White Hall Police Department welcomes all participants for our annual Easter Egg Hunt,” Wallis said. “If you have any questions or wish to make a donation to help make this event possible for next year, please feel free to contact the police department at 217-3742135.”
