Stolen Kane bridge suspect on the lam By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press Greene County authorities say they have solved the case of the stolen bridge, but the suspect is still at large. Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen said a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Michael Wayne Tucker, 46, for the theft of an iron and wood bridge in Kane Township along with numerous other charges. The bridge, which was over a small creek on County Road 800N, was thought to have been taken sometime in February. It was not noticed until now because the road is in such bad condition leading up to the bridge it is not used very often. McMillen said pieces of the bridge were found on Tucker’s property when deputies went to discuss a property dispute with Tucker. After a search warrant was issued for his home, a 400-foot roll of fourinch field drainage tile that had been reported stolen from a farmer who lives near Tucker was allegedly found. This resulted in a second theft charge against Tucker. Sheriff McMillen spotted Tucker

in a truck on Rt. 67 at County Road 750 North on April 20 and attempted to make a traffic stop. A three-mile pursuit ended with Tucker exiting the vehicle and running off into the woods to elude police. Upon a search of Tucker’s vehicle, deputies discovered both methamphetamine and methamphetamine related material and equipment. Arrest warrants were issued for Tucker on Friday, April 25 by Greene County State’s Attorney Caleb Briscoe, charging him with two counts of theft. Because the bridge is considered government property, the theft is a Class 2 felony. The theft of the drainage tile is a Class A misdemeanor. Additional charges were filed against Tucker for possession of methamphetamine, a Class 3 felony, for possessing less than five grams of a substance containing methamphetamine along with driving while license suspended, a Class 4 felony. As of Tuesday morning, Tucker had still not been apprehended. Anyone with any information as to Tucker’s whereabouts is asked to call the Greene County Sheriff’s Department at 217-942-6901.

Carrollton Masonic Lodge proud sponsor Greenfield high's Olympiad teams excel of Masonic Bowl Sectional Champs By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press

SCHOOL

OH,

Carrollton Masonic Lodge is happy to be a part of the Carrollton High School Scholastic Bowl’s winning season after the Hawks took home the $400 prize for winning the sectional title at Winchester in the Masonic Academic Bowl competition in February. Carrollton Masonic Lodge sponsored both the Carrollton and Greenfield scholastic bowl teams, though they competed in different sectionals. Carrollton competed in Winchester while Greenfield competed at Southwestern. Neil Gillingham, who is treasurer of the Carrollton Masonic Lodge, shared how the academic bowl began. “They held the first competition in 1982 when the Winnebago Masonic Lodge joined forces with Byron High School to organize the first invitational tournament in northern Illinois called the Northern Illinois Academic Bowl,” Gillingham said. “The first 16-team tournament was hosted by Winnebago High School and included Class A schools from the counties of Bonne, Carroll, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago.” In 1988, the tournament was renamed the Northern Illinois Masonic Academic Bowl and involved all high schools in northern Illinois who wanted to participate. The following year it became the

Illinois Masonic Academic Bowl and became a statewide tournament with four tournament sites – two in northern Illinois, one in central Illinois and one in southern Illinois. As the years went by, the number of schools participating grew with 295 schools competing this year.

“All masonic Lodges in the state of illinois are asked to sponsor a high school team in the tournament .”

Neil Gillingham

Treasurer of the Carrollton Masonic Lodge There is no cost for a school to enter the competition. “All Masonic Lodges in the state of Illinois are asked to sponsor a high school team in the tournament,” Gillingham said. “The cost to sponsor the team is $150 and we sponsored both Carrollton and Greenfield this year. Monetary scholastic awards are presented to each school finishing in the top four positions at each Class A and Class AA sectional tournament location and at the state tournament. The winner of the sectional received

a $400 prize; second place, $300; third place, $200 and fourth place, $100. Teams who progressed to the state tournament in each class were vying for a $1,500 top prize with $1,000 going to the second place team, $700 to the third place team and $400 to the fourth place team. Those teams advancing to state but not placing were awarded $100 each. So, by winning the sectional and advancing to the state but not placing, Carrollton received a total of $500 for their efforts. “The Masons of Illinois ask only that the scholastic awards money be used by the schools for scholarships or academic purposes within the school system,” Gillingham said. “It can be used for anything from purchasing scholastic bowl T-shirts to the purchase of practice questions, computer hardware or software.” At the sectional in Winchester, Carrollton was led by senior Connor Goetten and junior Ben Baumgartner. The Hawks went 7-0 at the sectional and finished by defeating Routt in the semifinals and Camp Point Central in the championship. Other team members included: Brittney Lehr, Will David, Dalton Sharrow, Luke Tepen and Chase McAdams. Prior to the Masonic Bowl, the Hawks claimed the WIVC title for the second year in a row, and then created a first for Carrollton claiming the regional scholastic bowl title.

Greenfield’s Olympiad teams have done their school proud this year. Elementary Principal Chris Raynor told the school board at the April 21 meeting that seven out of the nine teams finished in the top 10. “We are very proud of the kids this year,” Raynor said. “We were working with 50 kids this year in the program and they competed against 29 other teams.” The third and fourth grade teams received a first, second and tenth place out of 29 teams; the fifth and sixth grade teams finished fourth and eighth out of 29 teams and the seventh and eighth grade teams placed third and seventh out of 28 teams. The high school teams did equally as well, finishing third and sixth place overall out of 29 teams. “We utilized four teams of 16 students that practiced one period a week for six to eight weeks,” Olympiad Sponsor Jeri Lynn Brown said. “The district had a total of 66 students participate in Olympiad efforts.” Both Raynor and Brown thank the Greenfield Foundation For Education Excellence for making it possible for Greenfield to participate in the Olympiad this year. Board member Elliott Turpin

reported that the foundation’s treasurer’s report reflected a balance of $14,568.41. “Scholarship essays have been reviewed and the decision made to award 20 scholarships at graduation this year,” Turpin said. “We will also be making a donation to the high school for hosting Rachel’s Challenge next year.” Superintendent Kevin Bowman reported that the district has been awarded a FY2014 School District Library Program Grant for $750. Following a half-hour closed session, the board reconvened and approved the following: n Resignation of Rachel Kinser as high school girls assistant basketball coach. n Resignation of John Bayless as junior high boys head basketball coach. n Resignation of Chris Raynor as pee wee boys assistant basketball coach. n Hiring of Tyann Hallock as student council sponsor. n Low bid for bakery products from Kohl’s Foods. n Low bid for dairy products from Prairie Farms. n Low bid for refuse collection from Area Disposal Service. n Renewing memberships in the IHSA and IESA. n Board members, superintendent and/or other district staff to attend the IASB Conference in Chicago.

“The acronym PROM has turned into Please Return On Monday, which is a message we are promoting to remind our students to be safe during prom weekend,” Carrollton Driver’s Education instructor Nick Flowers said. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death in 15- to 20-year-olds. In 2009, more than 3,900 teens lost their lives in traffic accidents. Illinois took action to combat the startling statistic by developing the Operation Teen Safe Driving program, as well as instituting C

one of the toughest graduated driver’s license programs in the country. Illinois saw a 50 percent reduction of teen deaths due to traffic accidents from 2008 to 2009. In 2008 there were 93 teen fatalities compared to 79 in 2009. “The PROM program was born out of a press conference in 2008 in which Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White asked a group of teenagers if they knew what prom stood for,” Flowers said. “No one had a good answer and Secretary White explained it stood for ‘Please Return on Monday.’” The PROM package received through Flowers’ application includes T-shirts for teachers to wear on the last school day before prom, lanyards, pens, bracelets and key chains with the PROM message on them to hand out to students, as well as fact sheets with statistics about teen driving issues. For example: n As a group, teenagers are more likely to speed, run red lights, make illegal turns, ride with an intoxicated driver and not wear safety belts. n Some four million new teen drivers are licensed every year and over half of them will be involved in a crash before they turn 20. n Two-thirds of teens who die in car crashes are not buckled up. n Some of the deadliest days for teen crashes are July 4, New Year’s Eve and the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. n Teens crash four times more than any other age group. n In the first year on the road, teens are almost 10 times more likely to be in a crash.

St. John’s holds Homers Benefit for Roodhouse for Health event resident battling cancer By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

Carmen Ensinger/Greene Prairie Press

Second grader Caleb Howard is dead serious as he tries to hit a home run during the Homers For Health Home Run Derby at St. John's School in Carrollton Friday afternoon. All the money raised will be donated to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press St. John’s Catholic School is well known to be big Cardinals fans, so it really isn’t surprising to see the students of St. John’s helping out one of the Cardinals’ favorite charities – SSM Cardinal Glennon’s Children’s Hospital. The entire school participated Friday in the Homers For Health, which is a whiffle ball home run derby to raise money for the hospital. Students who participated in the derby were asked to bring a donation of at least $2. “This just looked like something our kids would like to do,” St. John’s Principal Julie Lake said. “It is for a very good charity and would present a fun day outside for the kids. The fact that the weather turned out so beautiful is just a plus.” There were three age divisions – kindergarten through second, third through fifth and sixth through eighth - for both boys and girls for a total of six divisions. Each student had the opportunity to hit 10 balls

off of a T and received points for the distance each traveled. The top scorer in each category will get the opportunity to advance to the final Home Run Derby Championship hosted by Cardinals players Matt Holiday, Allan Craig and other Cardinal players on May 16 at Forest Park in St. Louis. “Because it does fall on a school day, the winners, if they choose to attend, must be taken by their parents,” Lake said. “Not all schools participate in this, but we chose to do it this year. I think they said last year there were around 600 school kids that attended the Forest Park event.” The event raised $261 for Cardinal Glennon and Adam Schnettgoecke was the star batter of the event, collecting 39 out of 40 points, leading the sixth through eighth grade division for the boys. Other division winners were: K-second, Nathan Nord and Emily Albrecht; third through fifth, Ava Uhles and Grant Pohlman and sixth through eighth, Schnettgoecke and Emily Schmidt.

Kampsville Museum makes push for more visitors By BOB CROSSEN Greene Prairie Press After fighting off the floods last year and beating away this year’s winter storms, the Kampsville Museum will open its doors this weekend for the first time this year. Carol Colaninno, director of education for the Center for American Archaeology (CAA), said the main exhibit at the museum will be featured throughout the summer, along with a number of activities which have been planned for the warm season. “We are currently doing some improvements around the museum,” Colaninno said. “We have our programs announced for 2014, so we’ve got Archaeology Day scheduled and all our other archaeology events. … We just have the normal displays up right now, a display of our current research and a display of the archaeological traditions in the area in terms of how people were living here thousands of years ago.” Last fall, the museum held a special exhibit of its own personal history for a limited time. Large format photos were installed to show how archaeology in Calhoun County and the surrounding area has evolved since the group was formed in 1953. Colaninno said that exhibit is no longer available at the museum, but noted there will be a new, exclusive exhibit this coming this fall. Just what that exhibit will feature is under wraps, however. The education director said the museum is focused on improving attendance this year, especially through use of its programs throughout the summer when visitors can learn about the archaeology of the area and the process of unearthing discoveries. “We have a lot of people in the community that don’t know that we exist,” Colaninno said. “The more visitors we can get, the better. … Part of our mission is teaching people about the archaeology of the area and promoting stewardship. We can’t promote culture if people don’t know about the archaeology.” She said Illinois is home to many archeological landmarks about which most people are unaware, such as the oldest domesticated dog burial site in North America. Located in Greene County, Colaninno said archaeologists used

dating methods to ascertain the age of the dog – a replica of which can be seen in the Kampsville Museum – which had been buried with personal items. “They’re about 8,500 years old,” Colaninno said. “The skeletons were recently sampled for genetic material and they were able to sequence the DNA of these dogs and relate them back to the global occurrence of dog domestication.” She said the study exposing that discovery was published just last year, despite the dog burial first being found in the 1970s by CAA excavators. She said the archaeologists at CAA continue to study the remains of the dogs in the context of the time period during which they were buried to learn more about the human culture surrounding dogs at that time. “The really cool thing about the burials is that the dogs were buried with objects, so they placed objects in the dog’s grave with the dogs, which is really cool because it shows that they didn’t just consider these dogs animals,” Colaninno said. “They were pets. They had a connection to them.” And visitors to the museum can learn about that history or help discover more by participating in the excavation days – some are for adults, others for families. During the day-long excavation, participants will visit a 2,000-year-old village site and process artifacts. The family excavation day is focused more on an introduction to excavation and the archaeological process with an exploration on prehistoric life. But the most popular day is the Archaeology Day scheduled for July 12 this year. The day is filled with educational activities about the 12,000-year history of west central Illinois. Attendees will take part in hands-on activities and attend presentations of the recent work being conducted by CAA archaeologists.

When Mike Scott, Sr., of Roodhouse retired from the Kansas City Southern Railroad in August of last year, he was looking forward to moving back to his old hometown and enjoying a carefree retirement. Those hopes were dashed in January of this year when Scott was diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer and Stage 3 colon cancer. Now, he is in a fight for his life and the North Greene community is banding together to help the family with medical expenses by holding a benefit at Garner’s in Roodhouse on May 17. Scott, 60, graduated from North Greene High School in 1971 and went to work for the GM&O Railroad in June 1972. He spent 41 years with the railroad until his retirement last year. The first thing Mike and his wife, Cindy Scott, did when Mike retired was move back to their hometown of Roodhouse from Odessa, Mo., where he had been stationed with the railroad. Cindy Scott said her husband had symptoms but refused to go to the doctor. “He started losing weight and lost 78 pounds before he would let me take him to a doctor,” she said. “It was not good – they removed the whole right side of his colon

but they weren’t able to get it all. When they did a PET scan they found a few spots on his lungs, but right now they are concentrating on his liver and colon. He is currently taking chemotherapy.” His prognosis was not good. “Doctors gave him six months to a year,” Scott said. “Mike told them, ‘I didn’t work 41 years to retire and live just a year.’ So he has a positive outlook on fighting this.” Scott has insurance through the railroad but that insurance doesn’t pay for everything and the benefit is being held to help with those expenses not covered. For example, the initial weeklong stay in the hospital cost $86,000. The Scotts received a bill for $15,000 as their portion. Chemotherapy treatments will just keep adding to these expenses. The benefit on May 17 will include a couples pool tournament beginning at noon, 50/50 drawing, raffles, a quarter auction beginning at 5 p.m. and a DJ show following the auction, which will play until midnight. For more information about donating an item for the auction or for more information about the benefit, contact Kerry Barker at 217-370-6072. An account has been set up at White Hall Farmer’s State Bank for monetary donations. Make donations payable to the Mike Scott Sr. Benefit.

Brussels High School hires CUSD 1's Stumpf By BOB CROSSEN Greene Prairie Press With the retirement of Marla Palmer as Brussels High School principal, the school district has turned to a Brusselsborn man to take over the school’s administrative duties. Born in the small town, Andy Stumpf will take up his first role as a full-time administrator for the high school in southern Calhoun County. Stumpf has worked the past 10 years in the Carrollton CUSD 1 where he has been a coach for football and basketball. He has filled in as a substitute principal in the Carrollton district when needed, as well. “They had to go to a conference a couple weeks ago, so I was the principal for a whole week of our K through eight building,” Stumpf said. Though he did not spend much of his life living in Brussels – his family moved to Carrollton when he was 3 – Stumpf said he is familiar with the community, having visited his grandmother on many occasions until she died a few years ago. The new principal said he frequents the picnic in Brussels to enjoy the good food and company, and he is excited to work for a district that has a more intimate relationship between the teachers, students and parents. “It’s a smaller town, obviously, and a smaller school district, but that’s what I like about it,” Stumpf said. “You’ve got students and teachers and parents who love their school and love their children getting an education. They’re paying me the ultimate compliment by allowing me to go and lead those teachers and students and parents.” A graduate of Carrollton High School in 2000, Stumpf said he then attended Monmouth College where he played football through his collegiate career. It wasn’t until a classmate and team mate of his, Nick Flowers, asked him to help coach at Carrollton that Stumpf returned to the area for good. Coaching football and basketball have given him the leadership and management skills necessary to be a successful administrator, he said. “I’ve been in a lot of coaching over the years. It’s been a fun ride. I love coaching, but I also set a goal of being an administrator, and that opportunity came along,” Stumpf said. But he said he doesn’t expect to make sweeping changes for a dis-

ANDy STUMPF trict that has had continually strong scores on standardized tests, rather he said he’ll focus on implementing the Common Core standards at the high school. All public school districts in Illinois are switching over to the Common Core standards for learning which are higher and clearer than those previously set by the State Board of Education. The standards incorporate cross-curriculum learning, so students in social studies and history classes will also learn how to read and write well, and science classes will incorporate mathematics teachings. As a teacher of middle school mathematics, Stumpf said he is familiar with the math Common Core standards and hopes he can bring that knowledge to the teachers at the high school to help in implementation of the new learning standards. Other than the “beautiful countryside,” Stumpf said he doesn’t expect massive differences in his transition to Brussels High School where he was just hired last Thursday, April 24. Stumpf said he has been in contact with Superintendent Mark Martin about overarching plans for the school, but said his main goal is to provide a quality learning environment for every student. “I want all of my students to succeed. I don’t think success is the same for everyone, but I believe that every student, every teacher, every person can succeed if put in the right position,” Stumpf said. “That’s my goal is to have all teachers and students to succeed in their own way.”

Kendra McEvers wins scholarship

By MARY LOVE HAMMON

Recently Susan Flynn chauffeured Mable Batty Cole to Heritage Nursing Home in Carlinville, where they visited with Gladys Ford, Trudy Cole and Eleanor Wayham. Susan had homemade cookies for everybody. It was a morning visit. Amelia Burger lived a good part of her adulthood across the Illinois River. Her daughter, Lois Sibley invited her to meet them at the Barefoot Bar for fish. Debbie Fields fixed me a BLT, asparagus, sliced tomato and delicious deviled egg half. Frozen peaches were dessert. Now some of you may have menu ideas. Clifton, Shirley Hammon and I had such a delightful time when they were down. Debbi Fields made deviled eggs and old-fashioned bean salad for us; the rest of our meal came from Meehan’s deli. After they rehung the decorative valance and blind - this room used to be Clifton, Vickie and Richard’s playroom. When Clifton and Shirley Hammon came down from Sherman, they took me for a nice ride out to the city lake. The grass was green, people fishing. Someone has cultivated and planted George and Rose Rives garden - probably son Steve Rives. The magnolia tree that Stan Rives planted was in full bloom and probably leafed out by now. I sent Clifton and Shirley home with bean salad and deviled eggs that Debbi made for us. I had her buy Brach chocolate bunnies in boxes for gifting. I sent one home with Debbie for her granddaughter, Hanna Fields, who lives with her daddy Alan Fields in Palmyra. Miss Hanna spent the weekend with Grandma Debbi and aunt Beth. Over the weekend I had fun. Hanna Fields (5) played outside with her Grandma Debbi and Aunt Beth. They made pirate hats and threw water balloons. The water balloons caught up with Debbi - she has had Croup ever since. There were two bicycles in the Fields’ yard for gifting. Dale and Barb Gresham offered to pay; Debbi thought they could give away, as Mildred Ferguson’s parents did. Today while Debbi put away my weekly food, her daughter read “The Enchanted Egg” aloud to us. It is a little Golden Book. Inside cover has a footprint of Clifton Hammon. Instead of forming clubs, going shopping and eating out, I found different things to do with my son, as all of you do. Ditches carry water to brooks, to branches, to creeks, to rivers, to bays, to oceans. While Debbi cooked, Beth read April 15, 1959 from Clifton Hammon’s Log of Life book. He had helped his daddy to plant potatoes. Mother would bring the first to show Dusty. My piano tuner Denzil of Mechanicsburg called that he would be in Koinia Murrayville April 16 - could he come to Greenfield at 2 p.m.? The following are people, places and things that make it possible for me to live at home: God, and my

twelve angels, William Dale Hammon (d) who worked 43 years for the CB&Q Railroad and Burlington Northern Railroad for my retirement to be deposited at the Carrollton Bank. My son Clifton Hammon and wife who telephone each evening and come down every two weeks with their love and affection. My Life Line and the following retirees: Curt Coonrod (d), Virgil Reese (d), Charlie Rives (d), Harold Meneley, Rick and Helen Settles, Dean Bishop, Bob and Fernanda Morrow (d), Bob and Smilie Garner, Dr. Gary and Amy Turpin, Debbi and Beth Fields, Rev. Hans Poetschner, Nancy Mansfield, Ruth Larson, and all the White Hall Presbyterian congregation, Shade Lumber, C & K Collision, Kenny Albrecht’s South Side crew, Jim Gable’s pharmacy - Pat, Tish and Sharon, Mirror Montage - Melissa and Kelly, AAA Chuck Costello, Meehan’s IGA and all their crew, Rick Cox, Becker’s, Morrow’s, Jim Armold, Huson at waterworks and Sydney Hannish. If I need new or repaired, I telephone - they bring or fix and I write the check. These are my telephone friends who check on me, give me news, etc. Barb Kahl, Norma Maggart, Amelia Burger, Mable Batty Cole - cousins Bev Still, Will Jennings and Linda Pohlman. Each day I telephone my Colorado sister, Melba Love Robinson, we pray and sing. Yesterday we recalled reading “The Enchanted Egg” to our children. This became one of our traditions. True humility - humble - not a work we hear used to describe many people in our day. It seems that the more authority and power persons get in this world, the more arrogant and demanding they become. Even as Christians, authority and power can go to our head and we lose sight of whom we represent and how God expects us to act. If we are going to learn to be like Jesus then we must understand and exemplify what humble means. It does not mean weakness. I have learned through my years as a Christian that humble really means putting others before our own wants and needs. This is not easy in a world that teaches us that we should put ourselves first and do what makes us happy. Jesus had every right to be demanding and to force others to do his will. But instead he chose to please his heavenly Father and to do God’s will. He chose to do what was best for us. This is true humility! Jesus was, and is, a king and yet he humbled himself so that we could be exalted. Have you humbled yourself and recognized Jesus as King, Savior and Lord of your life? If we humble ourselves in this world, we too will be exalted in the next one.

CHS participating in TECH2014 MAY 8 The annual TECH 2014 Students for the Information Age event will be held on Thursday, May 8, at the Illinois State Capitol Building in Springfield. Fiftyseven schools will be represented from throughout the state of Illinois. From 1 to 3 p.m., students will show the public and elected members of the Illinois State Senate and the House of Representatives how technology is being used in the classroom to increase student engagement and improve achievement. Student demonstrations can be viewed in the Capitol Building Rotunda. They will demonstrate how technology has helped them with their schoolwork. Carrollton High School is taking part in the demonstrations. The purpose of TECH 2014 is to raise awareness of the critical role technology plays in preparing students to succeed in today’s world, and to show the need for increased funding for classroom technology. Students will demonstrate for lawmakers and the public the creative ways technology is being used to enhance and accelerate student achievement in Illinois schools today. The importance of this event lies in making the public awareness of the central role technology has come to play in our schools and generating support for its adequate funding. Entering the job force without a strong foundation in information-age technology is not an option for today’s high school

and college graduates. Understanding computers and related tools is a requirement, even for entry-level jobs, and computer literacy is essential for further education and advancement in almost every academic sphere. From the elementary to the high school level, technology expands the walls of the traditional classroom, bringing in people and events from all over the globe. Technology captures and holds the attention of this generation of learners far better than textbooks alone. Computers allow for more individualized instruction as teachers, using technology, move from the traditional “sage on the stage” role to becoming “guides on the side,” providing students the tools they need to become more active in managing their own learning. TECH 2014 is a not-for-profit initiative presented by Illinois Computing Educators (ICE), and is supported by a broad range of education and business organizations. Corporate Platinum Plus partners are Comcast and CDW-G. Without the understanding and support of the public and the legislature, adequate public funding for education technology is hard to come by and, without it, Illinois cannot remain competitive in the global economy. Please consider coming to TECH 2014 on May 8 at the Capitol in Springfield and supporting technology in education and how students are using it in the classroom!

Carrollton, Illinois

March unemployment hits five-year low in Illinois 8.4 percent lowest since January 2009 The March unemployment rate fell to 8.4 percent, the lowest level since January 2009, according to data released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Illinois Department of Employment Security. The rate fell despite more people entering the labor force to look for work. As expected, however, the unseasonably cold and snowy weather in March dampened initial estimates for new hiring. Combined with continued job loss at the government level, the state recorded -3,200 fewer jobs than in February but +29,400 more than one year ago. The unemployment rate and job creation numbers can move independently of each other because they come from different surveys. “Today’s drop in the unemployment rate highlights significant progress in our state,” IDES Director Jay Rowell said. “Our monthly numbers will continue to show uneven but measurable progress. Consumer confidence and its related spending remains a key driver of our economic growth, especially in construction and manufacturing.” Numbers from the independent Conference Board’s Help Wanted OnLine Survey show Illinois employers in March advertised for more than 195,000 jobs and 85 percent sought full-time employment. The Board is a global business membership and research association. The numbers measure new, first-time online jobs and jobs reposted from the previous month

on internet job boards, corporate boards and smaller, niche websites. Illinois employers added +257,000 private sector jobs since January 2010 when job growth returned following nearly two years of consecutive monthly declines. Leading sectors are Professional and Business Services (+119,900, +15.3 percent); Education and Health Services (+56,600, +6.9 percent); and Leisure and Hospitality (+40,200, +7.8 percent). Government (-26,500, -3.1 percent) continues to lead job loss. In March 2014, the number of unemployed individuals fell -17,100 (-3.0 percent) to 551,900. Total unemployed has fallen -201,600 (-26.8 percent) since January 2010 when the rate peaked at 11.4 percent. Since January 2010, when compared to the previous month, Illinois recorded job growth in 35 months and job loss in 15. The unemployment rate fell in 25 months, increased in nine and was unchanged in 16. The unemployment rate identifies those who are out of work and seeking employment. A person who exhausts benefits, or is ineligible, still will be reflected in the unemployment rate if they actively seek work. Historically, the national unemployment rate is lower than the state rate. The state rate has been lower than the national rate only six times since January 2000. This includes periods of economic expansion and contraction.

The U of I Extension office in Carrollton held a Master Gardener's plant exchange Sunday afternoon. Alice Dodson, a member of the U of I Extension and a master gardener, explains growing instructions to Bonnie Gibson, left and Glenna Wright, middle, during the exchange. The idea is to bring a plant to the exchange and take a different one home, thus sharing the garden.

Illinois schools win No Child Left Behind waiver entire school and district, not simply a test score. In addition, the Illinois accountability system calls for a renewed focus on closing achievement gaps, turning around the lowest-performing schools, building capacity for school improvement and enhanced transparency. “We still believe that a top priority must be for Congress to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, but short of that, a waiver does allow us to move forward and work with local districts to do what’s best for students,” State Superintendent of Education Christopher A. Koch said. “Despite the delay in our waiver approval, Illinois educators have moved forward with elements of our plan and the commitment to college and career preparedness for all students, including the implementation of new, internationally benchmarked learning standards and 21st century assessments of student learning.” The federal education law has been due for Congressional reauthorization since 2007. In the absence of reauthorization, President Obama announced in September 2011 that the administration would grant waivers from NCLB to qualified states.

elements of the waiver, including the adoption of college and career ready learning standards in English, language arts and mathematics in the summer of 2010. In 2011, Governor Quinn signed landmark education reforms that strengthened accountability in our schools and training for teachers, administrators and school board members. The historic measure set clear standards for teacher evaluations and prioritized performance above tenure. These reforms represent unprecedented statewide agreement on issues that continue to be unresolved across the nation. “The best economic tool a state can have is a world-class education system, and that’s why we have been fighting to get this done since day one,” ISBE Chairman Gery Chico said. “Schools across Illinois are already putting in place many elements of our plan for student success and this approval will allow us to fully implement our comprehensive plan to make Illinois’ education system the best in the nation.” The approved waiver also calls for a new state and district accountability system. Illinois will implement a multiple measure system that look at an

Written exams for the position of Illinois Conservation Police Officer Trainee will be given May 5-8 at approved Central Management Services testing centers in Champaign, Chicago, Marion, Springfield and Rockford. The test will be used to form a list of eligible candidates from which trainees may be chosen for proposed police academy training. Prior to taking the test, candidates must submit a completed CMS 100 application form to the Department of Central Management Services, Examining and Counseling, Room 500, Stratton Office Building, 401 S. Spring Street, Springfield, IL 62706. All qualified applicants will be given the opportunity to take the written exam. If you are unable to mail the CMS 100, you may contact a testing center and take a completed CMS 100 to the

testing facility for review prior to taking the exam. Conservation Police officer recruits are first required to attend the Illinois State Police (ISP) Academy for basic law enforcement training and certification. The ISP Academy lasts for 12 weeks and includes 480 hours of classroom instruction, practical training, and scenario training. The training covers everything from Illinois Vehicle and Criminal codes to domestic violence and drug enforcement. Upon successful completion of the ISP Academy, recruits enter the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police (CPO) Academy. The CPO Academy is also 12 weeks in length with 480 hours of course work. A list of required qualifications can be found at http://dnr.state. il.us/law3/career.htm

After pushing for more than two years, Governor Pat Quinn and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has announced that Illinois has won approval from the United States Department of Education for its request for flexibility from parts of the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law to improve the quality of education for Illinois’ schoolchildren. The approved waiver gives Illinois needed flexibility to continue its progress in implementing a comprehensive strategy to improve education in Illinois by closing achievement gaps, supporting our most challenged districts and preparing all students for college, career and beyond. “Today’s approval is a big step forward that will allow Illinois to do what’s best for our kids and improve the quality of education throughout our state,” Governor Quinn said. “In 2011, we enacted landmark education reform that made our schools stronger and more accountable. Now, with this federal approval, we will continue to improve the quality of education in Illinois and better prepare our students to be successful in college, career and beyond.” Illinois has moved forward already with many

Hello from Barrow Baptist Church and church family. Our pastor is Bro. Gerald Day and our service times are 9:30 a.m. Sunday school, followed by 10:30 a.m. morning worship with nursery service available. Everyone is welcome to either or both services. On Sunday, April 27 we had 42 attending Sunday school and 49 attending morning worship. Remember our men and women in uniform and the leaders of our nation in your prayers. Others to remember include Keith Forrester, Maureen Martin, Lucille Seely, Juanita Muntz, Audrey Prather, Connie Sturgeon, Merle Howard, Teri Parker, Shirley Cox, Doris Durham, David Stendeback, Ann Ford, Ron Vestel, Brenda Early, Linda Wyatt, Steve Whitten, Blaze Farris, Kelsey Piper, Marla Sprong, Bob Caskey, Locky Lockhart, Bill Fraser,

Charity Southern Baptist Church invites you to worship with us. Sunday school is at 9:30am, church at 10:30. Choir practice Sunday evening is at 6, church service is at 7. Wednesday night family supper is at 6 pm, Bible Study 7 p.m. Our purpose in our church is to honor God, reach the unsaved, and with our utmost ability and faithfulness promote growth in the Lord. In so doing, we will support fellowship, become alert for new prospects and always work to reclaim inactive members. This week Brother Bill Smith gave a message regarding The Last Supper and our role in communion. We are to partake in communion as a time of reflection on the sacrifice The Lord made for us. (1Corinthians 11:23-26) The bread we eat symbolizes that we accept His body that He gave up to be beaten, mocked and murdered to save us. The wine we drink represents our acceptance of His blood that was spilt for our sake. This is a ritual expected

Margie Lawson, Cindy Wells Shaffer, George Rogers, Dorothy VanGiesen and the William Ford family. Happy birthday wishes go to our pastor, Bro. Gerald Day, May 7. Bro. Day will be 80 years old and has been with our church 34 years. There will be an open house, Saturday, May 3 from 2 to 4 at the Barrow Baptist Church fellowship hall to help him celebrate. All former members, friends, pastors, are invited to come help him celebrate. Sunday evening, Dr. Ernie Moore, a former Greene County resident, shared his message with us. He and his wife have written seven books and currently live in Jerusalem. That’s all for this week. Have a good week and be a friend to someone in need.

of and reserved only for those who have accepted His gift of salvation. We are warned in verses 27-32 to not partake if we do not Believe. We are to examine ourselves. Look into your own heart and determine how faithful you really are to Jesus. Do you believe He is who He says He is? Do you believe His sacrifices were for a divine purpose? Where do you stand? How do you behave? Do you do your best to mimic His love? Do you accept that you are unworthy of His saving grace? Are you quick to forgive just as He is? Do you spread His love and the good news that come of the cross? Come to the Lord with an open heart, acknowledging His sacrifices and His relentless love. Come willing to be moldable and be made into His tool to reap lost souls to the Kingdom. Last week Brother Bill Smith gave a message from 1 Corinthians 1:18 and Colossians 1:19-20. Bro. Bill could not have said it better than this: “There has never been a Greater demonstration

of True Love than there was on The Cross.” God The Father gave His one and only Son for us. We hear this so often, but lets really think about it... Can you imagine allowing your child to be delivered to a Calvary of men that hate him, to be mocked, tortured and sacrificed for the sake of those who endlessly and relentlessly offend you and despise you? Think about that. Is there anyone that you may consider and enemy? This is whom you are giving your son or your daughter over to and for. To be Sacrificed. Sacrificed for evil so that the evil may be made pure. Now think about being that son or daughter. How easy would it be for you to hand yourself over to this group of men who hated you so that you may save them for eternity? Jesus did that. He was Terrified, but He did it. Mark 14:36 tells us of His pleas to the Father to “Take this cup from me!” In other words, “Don’t make me do this.” But He Did. God didn’t take this pain away from His Son, He empowered Him

to endure it. We should be eternally grateful that Jesus put His Father’s will before His own. Because of his faithfulness, we are all allowed to reign with Him eternally in Heaven. Heaven is perfect. Only perfection is allowed. None of us will make the cut alone. Only by accepting the ransom Jesus paid through His death on the cross are we made pure. Have you accepted His gift of salvation? Julie George led praise and worship with “All Hail King Jesus” and “In The Presence of Jehovah.” We were also pleased to celebrate the birthday of Helen Houlette. Please pray for these: Joanne Ford and family, Don Kual, Sharon Albrecht, Juanita Muntz, Anne Ford, Carl Winters, Gary White, Jack Ross, Our Pastor Search committee, our unspoken requests, our country, military families, nursing home residents, shut-ins and for our church as we search for a new pastor.

Calvary Baptist Church news April 27. Bro. Brad welcomed everyone and made the announcements: Potluck after morning services. May 17-10 a.m. Greene County Mobile Food Pantry at Gallery Auction House (old Greene Drive-in); Saturday, May 10, Ladies Banquet 6 p.m. Birthdays: Jim Hendrickson, Lisa Smith, Molly and Baxy Maggart. 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. Caruthers: Joel 1-13, 20, 2: 1-19. We are here to write the story of life. God is building his kingdom, which is composed of his people. Honor the Lord with the skills he has given you. Everyone is important to God. To him we are all equal. God wants us to do his work and be faithful to him. Put no other Gods before him. He is a jealous God. We are to contribute joyfully to God’s kingdom. God desires fellowship with his people. God told him to blow the trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm for the day of the Lord is coming. Be sure your life is in order and you are prepared to meet God. Sunday school report by Sis Mary. Great

food and good fellowship at the potluck. Sunday evening: Prayer and singing of hymns. Message by Bro. Johnny Renkin. Matthew 16: 24-28 Jesus asked the disciples, “who do people say I am?” Simon Peter said, “Thou art Christ, Son of the living God.” The true meaning of being a child of God is allowing him to have control of our life. When we follow Jesus we are to deny ourselves. Take up the cross and follow Jesus and do his work that he calls us to do. It is a struggle everyday to do what is right. Romans 6:11 - As God’s child we are dead to sin, but alive to God. He is with us all the time. Please pray for churches everywhere, all the disasters, traveling mercies, the bereaved, those in nursing homes and hospitals, the lost, the sick, our country, our leaders, our troops and their families, 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.

Walkerville Baptist Church news We did get some showers here and there. April showers bring May showers and mushrooms. Some have been found and I am sure there will be more. How good they are. We had a good group in church. You really missed a blessing. I felt so much better when I left church. Church is such a healing place for all of us. Life is a gift that’s why it’s called the present. Enjoy it. The message was good. Matthew 13. Christ’s disciples heard the call. Do you hear the call? You wonder why things go wrong in life. Did you leave Christ out or did you not call on God. God will take care of you. Trust in Him to make a way. Our prayer list is Brenda Sexton, Ann Ford, Brenda Early, Ray and Patty Baldes, John Garner, the Garner family, Betty Newman, Melanie Mast, Robert Lawson, Andy Ross, Grace Ross, Ed Crabtree, Susie Kiefer, our church families where ever they are. No birthdays. May is a big month for birthdays: Gerald Day, former pastor will celebrate his 80th on Saturday, May 3rd at the Barrow Church Fellowship Hall with an open house. Go and

have a good fellowship. No gifts please. Birthdays this month are Ed Lawson, Rhonda Lawson. Many that are not of our church. The question for the week was well discussed and we had a good laugh with it. The Bible does not tell us which side the thief, good or bad, was on when on the cross. Left or right makes no difference. The difference is right or wrong. And the good thief was on the right side. The question this week is, read Psalms 118 and somewhere in the verses is a verse that tells you what it is, who made it, and what you are to do with it! Read it carefully - a hint is to open an egg carton. I hope you all read the whole chapter. Remember, life is short live it, love is rare grab it, anger is bad dump it, fear is awful face it, memories are sweet, cherish them. I asked God to spare me pain, God said no. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. Marjorie still needs your prayers. We missed you in church; Jesus was more disappointed than anyone. We all love you and miss you all so much. See you in church Sunday.

With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! Psalm 119:10

The expression "all in" refers to wagering one's entire stake in poker, and thus has the connotation of being entirely committed to one's hand, or by extension, to whatever one is doing. One could commit oneself entirely to a business proposition by investing all of one's savings, for instance. Committing yourself to God is a lot like declaring that you are "all in." That is, we can't play half of our stake or only invest half of our resources in the kingdom of heaven. We must be completely committed to the spiritual life, wholeheartedly and single-mindedly giving our lives over to God. Anything else and you just aren't all in. - Christopher Simon

New vaccination requirements set for this school year State Health Department reminds parents to check with their doctor during National Infant Immunization Week Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is urging parents to talk with their child’s doctor about the new school-entrance vaccination requirements, and to make sure their child’s immunizations are up-to-date. This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Infant Immunization Week, April 26 – May 3, an

annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. “While some vaccine-preventable diseases are relatively rare in the U.S., they are only a plane ride away. Such diseases can be brought into the country by travelers, putting unvaccinated children at risk,” said Dr. Hasbrouck. “National Infant Immunization Week is a reminder to parents to make sure their children are up-to-date on immunizations.

Immunization is a shared responsibility. Families, healthcare professionals and public health officials must work together to help protect the entire community.”

One example of the seriousness of vaccine-preventable diseases is the current mumps

outbreak in central Illinois. Preliminary numbers show more than 65 cases have been reported so far this year, compared with approximately 26 all of last year and 32 in 2012. While the majority of cases in this outbreak are

in adults, unvaccinated children and children not fully vaccinated could be at an increased risk of illness. To help prevent illness and outbreaks due to vaccine-preventable diseases, Illinois is implementing new immunization requirements for the 2014-2015 school year. Beginning next year, children entering school at any grade level (kindergarten through 12) need to show proof of having received two doses each (instead of just one) of rubella and mumps vaccines. In addition, any child entering kindergarten, sixth grade or ninth grade for the first time shall show proof of having received two doses of varicella (chicken pox) vaccine. For the following school year, 2015-2016, students will need to show proof of having received a meningococcal vaccination, something that is currently not required. For school entrance, students must show proof of diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, haemophilus influenza type b, hepatitis b, varicella and pneumococcal (depending on age) vaccinations. More information about immunizations, including vaccination schedules, visit www.idph.state.il.us/about/ shots.htm. Providing essential health information is one way IDPH is continuing its mission of protecting health, improving lives and implementing IDPH’s Five Year Strategy. For a copy of the strategic plan, go to http://www.idph. state.il.us/about/StrategicPlan_ Final_2014-2018.pdf.

How to start babies on solid foods As many new parents can attest, a new baby brings with it many mysteries. Considering children do not come with instruction manuals, it's up to Mom and Dad to learn the ropes through trial and error and with some advice from pediatricians, friends and relatives. Children who are introduced to solid foods too early may not be developmentally ready to accept these foods. Studies also have linked the early introduction of solid foods with an increased risk of chronic diseases, such as obesity and eczema, later in life. Babies also may not be physically able to move their tongues and swallow properly to handle solid foods. Here are some guidelines for knowing when and how to introduce solid foods to a baby's diet. n Recognize readiness signs. Signs that your child is ready for solid foods include the ability to sit up and lean forward, good head control, the ability to pick up food and try to put it in his or her mouth and the ability to turn his or her head away to indicate fullness. If the baby watches you while eat and seems interested in your food, this may also indicate a readiness for solid food. n Begin with one food at a time. Most pediatricians recommend starting out with iron-fortified cereals as the first solid foods because they're least likely to cause an allergic reaction. These cereals can be diluted with milk or formula to make them more palatable. Others prefer to start with an iron-rich vegetable. Good starter vegetables include sweet potatoes, squash and peas. Before adding any more solid foods, stick with the initial food for at least one week or more to determine if the child can tolerate the food. Introducing solid foods to infants should only be done when the child is developmentally ready.

Ten tips for parenting teens (StatePoint) Parenting a teenager can be an uphill battle. In addition to the problems you may have faced in your youth, a new host of issues are presented by texting, sexting, social media and cyberbullying, point out experts. “Say the right thing and you’ll open up lines of communication. Say the wrong thing and it could lead to a fight or silent treatment,” says Joani Geltman, child development and parenting expert and author of “A Survival Guide to Parenting Teens: Talking to Your Kids About Sexting, Drinking, Drugs, and Other Things That Freak You Out.” (AMACOM). Geltman offers her “Top Ten Parenting Tips.” n Encourage teens to think independently. Restrain yourself from being chief problem solver, so they can make good choices even when you’re not around. n Try not to ask a zillion questions. You won’t get the answers

you want anyway. Engage them in a conversation on a neutral topic before you start the interrogation. n Refrain from going on the “lecture circuit.” Model what it means to be a good person so you don’t need to tell them. They will “get it.” n As uncomfortable as it may be, you have to talk about sex. Do it with honesty, and understanding, not judgment. n When it comes to alcohol and drugs, make your house safe. Again, have honest discussions, sans judgment. n Don’t rule with an iron fist. This may have worked when the kids were younger, but teens need to be part of the rule making. Most kids are actually pretty reasonable when given the opportunity to have some control. n With their input, set limits with phones, computers and video games. Just like you let them eat only a few pieces of Halloween candy a night

when they were younger, you need to see these devices in the same way. n Express your appreciation and pride in your teens. Not for the good test scores or grades necessarily, but for moments of kindness and hard work. n Find some fun with your teen. Hang out, watch TV, order pizza, go to the driving range, play a video game, listen to music, go get manis and pedis, bake a cake, take the dog for a walk, go shopping -- anything that may give you a moment, maybe just a moment, of sweetness with your kid. More parenting insights and information about the book can be found at http://joanigeltman.com/. When it comes to teenagers, the stakes can be high, with scary, emotional and even legal consequences. By being open and receptive, you can help navigate these treacherous waters.

Leonard sets new school record SAM ELLIoTT Greene Prairie Press After flirting with the feat all season, Carrollton High School junior Cody Leonard has set a new Hawks record in the high jump. "It was kind of an interesting deal," Carrollton track and field coach Brad Stewart said. "That was really the first time he kind of had to duke it out for first place because he hasn't had a whole lot of competition." Leonard and Pleasant Plains' Matt Utterback were the lone jumpers to clear 6 feet, 6 inches — Carrollton's previous school record — Saturday at the Rochester Invitational. After neither could clear 6 feet, 8 inches, the bar was lowered by one inch. "Maybe that was the best-case scenario because that way maybe Cody got to feel what 6 feet, 8 inches, felt like and come back down to 6 feet, 7 inches," Stewart said. "I think that was just what he needed." After only one missed attempt at 6 feet, 7 inches, Leonard cleared the new height. "That [one inch] made a pretty big difference," he said. "I don't know why it does, but it does just a little bit. Then I felt pretty good. My first jump, I just went a little too slow. I just backed my steps up a little bit." Backing up those steps took him higher than he — or any other Carrollton jumper — has ever reached. But Leonard still thinks he could get higher. "I feel like I could still go a few more inches by state," he said. "I feel pretty good about it." His coach is hopeful for another one or two inches. "I am confident that he could make 6 feet, 8 inches, maybe even 6 feet, 9 inches," Stewart said. "It’s just timing it out right, getting the perfect jump at the perfect

Carrollton High School junior Cody Leonard clears the high jump bar Tuesday during a three-team meet at the Don Snyders Sports Complex Tuesday in Jerseyville. Leonard rewrote hawks history when he leapt 6 feet, 7 inches, Saturday at a meet at Rochester High School. The previous record was 6 feet, 6 inches, set my Matt Roundcount in 1999.

height. He’s been really dedicated to lifting weights and I think that’s really for football actually. He’s been really pushing himself in the weight room for football, but it’s helping him out jumping. You wouldn’t normally think a kid weighing over 200 pounds would do very well in high jump, but it’s basically all muscle." Leonard's committment to gaining strength for the 2015 football season has already paid off during 2014's track and field campaign.

"You don’t think of a high jumper having that kind of a build and you don’t think he’s going to be able to fly over 6 feet, 6 inches, when you look at him," Stewart said. "This kid he was jumping against Saturday at Rochester was kind of a tall, lanky guy who kind of floated over the bar. You just don’t expect Cody to gracefully soar over a high height like that, but it’s just all those leg muscles that are helping him out, I think." Leonard went 6 feet, 4 inches, to win at a three-team meet Tuesday in Jerseyville.

Tyler Frye added a Carrollton victory in the 3,200-meter run, finishing in 10 minutes, 51.2 seconds Tuesday after setting a new personal record in the event Saturday in Rochester. "Tyler Frye really cut his time down in the two-mile run," Stewart said. "He got a [personal record] by about 30 seconds. I think it was around 10:36 or so. Now he’s in that range where he’s showed up on one of those unofficial rankings I saw online. He should do pretty well at our sectional and I’m

thinking he could make it to state in that event." Lane Schnettgoecke gave the Hawks a win in the shot put with a toss of 41 feet, 5 inches, while Marcus Lippert (128 feet, 1.5 inches) and Marcus Barnett (116 feet, 5.5 inches) were third and fourth, respectively, in the discus. "We’ve had a few real good showings by some of our athletes," Stewart said. "A couple of our throwers are in a pretty good position right now. I’m excited for our team." selliott@campbellpublications.net

SAM ELLIoTT Greene Prairie Press The North Greene High School baseball team is in a good position to repeat as Western Illinois Valley Conference champions after the Spartans swept Greene County rival Carrollton in a two-game series that ended Thursday in White Hall. Spartans senior Adam Knox pitched a three-hit shutout with nine strikeouts to just one walk

and North Greene batted around the lineup in the opening inning for an early 7-0 lead. "This year, we normally start off really slow and pick up our offense as the game goes on," NGHS head baseball coach Jim Roesch said. "This is the first time we’ve really jumped on a pitcher in the first inning. It’s kind of nice to play with a lead where you’ve got to maintain your focus, but you’ve got a cushion built up. That’s nice that you’re able to [come back], but

it’s nice sometimes to just put it away early." Michael Williams doubled in two runners in the first inning and Connor Vincent tripled home a pair in the second. The Spartans are 12-7 overall and a league-high-tying 5-1 inside the WIVC South. So is Calhoun, which already split a two-game series with North Greene. "All we’ve got to do is win some games and we’re in pretty good shape for the conference,"

Roesch said. "If we go out and execute in all our games, the worst we can do is be in a tie for the conference and there’s nothing wrong with that." In softball action, North Greene ended its series with Carrollton by salvaging a split of their two-game series by beating the Lady Hawks 3-2 Thursday in White Hall. The Lady Spartans (7-12, 2-4 WIVC South) led 1-0 early after a first-inning run that was the only scoring until the sixth.

Carrollton took a brief 2-1 lead in the top of the seventh inning, but senior captain Kinsey McMillen hit a two-out, twostrike, two-RBI game-winner to center field. "It’s always a goal every year to beat Carrollton," North Greene head coach Tim Roberts said. "Not only are they rivals, but they’re always tough. We know that if we can keep up with Carrollton, we’ll be tough." selliott@campbellpublications.net

They take a 7-1 record within the Western Illinois Valley Conference South into their doubleheader series with rival and unbeaten (5-0) Calhoun at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Hardin. Ruyle went 3-for-4 with one double, two runs batted in and as many runs scored. censinger@campbellpublications.net
