White Hall appoints trustees to Fire Protection District Board By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Appointees to the newly created White Hall Fire Protection District caused some discussion among council members at the May 8 city council meeting. The White Hall Fire Protection District was passed through a referendum at the March election. The city, which funded and had control of the fire department, will hand control over

to a governing board. White Hall Mayor Brad Staats proposed appointing Billy Griswold for a three year term; Mike Fry for a two year term and Rob McMillen for a one year term. Trustees are appointed by the Mayor with consent of the council. Alderman Mike Kleidon had issue with the appointments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel comfortable with it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I would like to have a meeting and talk about it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there might be a conflict of interest

because the Mayor is a member of the volunteer fire department.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Staats disagreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any conflict because [the trustees] are going to be making all the decisions for the fire department,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Myself, nor any of the other volunteers will have anything to say about it.â&#x20AC;? Fire Chief Garry Sheppard agreed with the mayor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing this city will be doing for the next year is funding the

Alderman Dewalin Painter sided with Kleidon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was under the impression the board would be appointed by the entire council, because I was concerned who would be on the board,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I (See, TRUSTEES, A2)

CEO trade show highlights young entrepreneurs By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press After a year of going around to various businesses and learning what it is like to start up and run a business, the 10 students from the Greene-Calhoun Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities (CEO) program put everything they learned together and created their own businesses. These businesses were spotlighted last Wednesday, May 9 at the CEO trade show, which was held at the Carrollton First Baptist Church. The program was started last year and is for any student in Carrollton, North Greene, Greenfield or Calhoun. This year, no students from Greenfield or Calhoun signed up for the program, but there were eight students from North Greene and two from Carrollton who enrolled in the class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students this year

have had the opportunity to learn from an all-star list of business leaders who shared their stories, expertise and wisdom,â&#x20AC;? CEO facilitator Andrew Reinert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gaining this knowledge has resulted in the students becoming more mature and confident, and has helped them transition from being looked at as just a high school senior to a capable business professional.â&#x20AC;? Since the beginning of the year, the students visited over 20 businesses and heard from over 20 guest speakers. Among the other activities/ events the students have taken part in include: Q Pairing with a business leader that has served as their mentor since November. Q Creating two business plans, one each for their class and personal business, which were reviewed by banking professionals and business leaders. (See, TRADE SHOW, A3)

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Perspectives

The older I get, the more I enjoy the small rivers around my area. I used to be the lake type. I used to look forward to the sport, and even the competition, of fishing. That competition was not necessarily with other boats, but it was as much with me. It seemed each time I went fishing the score was zero to zero and each fish I caught or didn’t catch moved the score in one direction or another. I loved it, but it seems now that I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have. Don’t get me wrong, my most memorable trips are still the ones where I caught the most fish; except perhaps for those where thunder and lightening were involved. But for the most part, the lake has provided some great memories.

And I hope it has more to give. The river however, is another species. It calls for one to be good at multitasking. If you spend too much time thinking about catching a fish, you will soon be going through some rough water sideways, and then upside down. Old Man River, over the years, has collected from me, many anchors, a slew of baits and a few expensive rods and reels. And rarely does he give any back. I can remember a few years ago, at nine o’clock in the morning, having to dive in to retrieve another anchor that had come untied (it seems I lose about three of these each year). The river does however provide plenty of sights that do serve to feed the imagination. It’s commonplace to see

deer wading out into the more shallow areas and turkey flying from one side to the other, and the ducks gathered into small pools. The river is a kaleidoscope of nature; each turn provides a different view; each view a different perspective and each perspective a different you. There’s no doubt the older we get the more introspective we become. I somehow think men are particularly this way; at times to a fault. Thinking is good, but it shouldn’t replace conversation – only add to it. And for me, the river gives me the perfect environment for both. Maybe you are neither the lake nor the river type. Perhaps your activities take you in other directions. And perhaps they are so involved that you

rarely have time to think about anything, much less somet h i n g of substance. These are fine, but don’t let them keep you from dealing with the weightier matters of life. Just because we ignore them, doesn’t mean they will go away. QGary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years.

Letters to the editor

Simple solutions to trash saga TO THE EDITOR: The Greene Prairie Press article, “Trash saga continues in White Hall” May 9, 2018, exposes incompetence, misconception and ignorance of the White Hall city government. As the individual that was the architect of several Greene County recycling programs and the Roodhouse trash service, the solution to the issue in debate in White Hall is simple. Alderpersons Painter, Kleidon, Coad and Vinyard voted for a simplistic and established trash choice instated by most US cities in the 1970s. Today in 2018, the citizens have the luxury of enjoying an inexpensive service that not only collects one’s refuse but will allow for free recycling, electronic waste recycling and various citywide clean-up days that would collect tires and other debris that litter the community and harbor insects and rodents. Mayor Staats’ veto of this mandate is predicated on archaic beliefs and simpleton thinking. All people create “trash” regardless of age or gender. The United States has five percent of the world’s population, yet produces just over 50 percent of the world’s garbage. Those who oppose this mandate would have us believe that this sort of government interference is “Communism” or “Fascism” or government “out of control.” Those using these terms use them incorrectly, as none of them apply to common sense modern realities. Those opposed decry that they do not wish the government to “force” them to appropriately dispose of the packaging and other items they discard. If items are not properly taken by professional haulers, these items are burned caus-

ing dangerous smoke far worse than cigarette smoke, which affects everyone but most commonly the young or the elderly and those with breathing issues. The items are also discarded in the dumpsters of businesses or, even worse, in the beautiful countryside of our county. When one reads the article, it calls into question the competency of the city legal council. Mr. Strang has been unable to provide the council with an ordinance to vote on, even though this practice of waste hauling has been the norm for over 40 years in most municipalities. Statements from the mayor about the cost of the program is chiefly the failure of his leadership. Mr. Staats stated, “We have already spent around $5,000 on this trash deal and now you want to spend more to have another contract drawn up. When is it going to end?” He went on to say, “These other trash companies are going to come in here and sue the city and then we will have the legal expense of that.” One hopes that such a statement was an honest mistake as this is a falsity. The taxpayers of the city of White Hall would be saving money if not for the obstruction of the mayor and others who oppose the reform. The city placed the service open for a bid and Area Disposal bid the lowest. Not only will all citizens save money, the school will receive a free recycling roll off provided by Area Disposal, as well as the city itself. Citizens will no longer have to endure the toxic and illegal odor of burning trash, as all residents will have trash service or can easily recycle items. Many of the North Greene track and cross country athletes

while running through the streets of White Hall breathe the smoke in as well as the citizens who enjoy a window open while sleeping. The benefits of less expensive trash service as well as the many amenities of recycling, tire and electronic waste recycling, as well as dumpsters for city clean up are evidence that this is a cost savings opportunity for the citizens of White Hall. The mayor’s misguided pre-1970s leadership is a failure to those he represents. Those that oppose this mandate either do not want to save money and receive more services or dispose of their waste in an inappropriate manner. It is time for the council and the good citizens of White Hall to demand the city attorney craft the appropriate ordinance (they could copy the ordinance in Roodhouse), so the citizens can save money, the high school can teach the youth the benefits of recycling and clean air becomes a reality. The substandard leadership exhibited by Mr. Staats, Alderman Cox and Alderman Roberts is appalling and incongruous to the health, life and safety of White Hall’s citizens, as well as propagates myths about the legality of this mandate. The majority of the citizens of White Hall want to save money and receive more benefits and are accustomed to removing unwanted items responsibly. It is those citizens with the aid of the enlightened alderpersons that must force the issue and be the vanguard against ignorance and archaic environmental practices that have been proven not to work and are more expensive.

think the three people who have been chosen will do a good job — they are all honest people and will be great stewards of the people’s tax money and that was all taken into consideration.” Alderman Rick Cox made a motion to approve the three appointees which was seconded by Alderman Brandon Roberts. Both Kleidon and Painter voted “no” with Aldermen Roberts, Cox Norman Coad and Alderman Sue Vineyard voting “yes,” which passed the motion with a 4-2 vote. Three bids were opened for the purchase of the empty lot located at 640 E. Lincoln. Bradley McCormick submitted a bid of $2,600; Thelma Dawdy, $2,900 and Tony Kessinger, $2,900. All bids were under the minimum bid required of $4,000. This was what the city would need to break even on the time and money invested in the property. Several council members did not want to sell the property for the high bid. Kessinger was in attendance at the meeting and was asked if he would be willing to increase his bid. “Personally, I don’t think it is worth what I offered because it is not in a good part of town,” he said. “The only reason I bid on it is because it is next to my own property. So, no, I would not pay $4,000 for it.” After some discussion and a decision of rather paying another $600 to advertise it for bids again, the council

agreed to sell it to Kessinger. A motion was made by Painter to have city workers provide curbside pickup for trash during trash pickup days instead of having people take their trash to a central location. Staats said he didn’t see this as feasible. “I am totally against this because, plain and simple, we don’t have the manpower,” he said. “The city is going to provide the dumpsters. Our workers have enough to do on a daily basis the way it is.” The motion was tabled until the trash ordinance was drawn up. In other action, the council: Q Approved the purchase of two batteries and front-end weights for the Big John Deere Tractor at a cost of $750. Q Approved taking the monthly Aqualitic Screening Equipment’s payments out of the Sewer Maintenance and Equipment Fund. Q Approved purchasing a John Deere 328E skid steer John Deere HH80 and John Deere 45 inch Pallet Forks for the disposal plant at a cost of $39,289. After a down payment of $3,849, the city will make quarterly payments of $2,391.64 which will come out of the Sewer Maintenance and Equipment Fund. Q Approved having overhead door opener and rollers replaced by Bland Snider at a cost of $1.380, which includes materials.

Trustees (Continued from A1) wanted to make sure people in White Hall were on the board — the attorney said the council would appoint that.” City Attorney Bill Strang said the procedure being used was correct. “This is the recommendation coming from the fire department,” Strang said. “But when you talk about appointments, they are made with the approval of the council, so basically you do get to make a decision on it.” Kleidon was still uncomfortable with it. “I would like to at least have a meeting and talk about the people because I never did even get a phone call,” he said. “Nothing against you, Mayor, but I don’t feel comfortable with you sitting there as mayor. I see a problem with you being mayor and on the fire department and overseeing who gets on the committee. I’m not for it unless we have a meeting on it.” Strang said the council could table the motion until the next meeting but Sheppard noted time is of the essence. “We are in a PTELL tax system and it could affect us if we wait too long and drag this out past a certain date, as we are on a short string right now” he said. “The attorney we contacted to form this district said we have to have everything done by Dec. 31 ad that doesn’t leave us a lot of time to get all the legwork done.

But the biggest news of all is that next year the pool will feature a splash pad which will replace the current kiddie pool. Butler said her goal since becoming a member of the pool board was to see the pool grow and improve which is why she applied for a $5,000 grant. “The kiddie pool served its purpose back in the day, but the fact is that it was not being utilized near as much now as it was when it was first put in,” Butler said. “That area could be better utilized by putting in something the

kids like, such as this splash pad we are proposing, which will have running and shooting water for the kids to play in.” Butler said she has seen the pool come full circle since becoming a member of the pool board. “Back in 2011, the city was on the verge of shutting the pool down because it was in such poor condition,” Butler said. “But thanks to the dedication of the citizens of Carrollton, a new breath of life was breathed into the pool and we want to make sure to continue to grow the pool and make sure it doesn’t get in such a sorry state ever again. It is a wonderful asset to the people of this community and the surrounding communities, as well and something we should be proud of.”

County purchases tractor for Highway Department By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Greene County Board members unanimously approved the purchase of a tractor for the Highway Department through the state bid program at the May 9 regular meeting. “Their old one has around 6,000 hours on it and they want to update it with a newer model,” board member Mark Strang said. “He said it is in their budget and they plan to sell the old one.” Cost of the tractor will be between $55,000 to $60,000. University of Illinois Extension Director Aaron Duffelmeier gave his report to the board and asked them to sign off on the

Extension budget for the coming year. “When we do our budget we have what we call our county agreements and other local agreements,” he said. “Rather than me presenting the whole five county unit budget to you, what we do is just these individual agreements and, honestly, by signing it you are just more or less signing off on our unit budget. I have agreements like this will all five county boards.” Doug Crawford, representative with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the bargaining unit for the sheriff’s department, was in attendance regarding the contract with the FOP. “In speaking with board member John Goode, Mr. Crawford has related to us he

feels comfortable in signing the contract agreement they have reached,” Strang said. “Everything seems to be in order so we need to vote on this tonight.” Crawford said he was glad the board approved the contract. “I believe we reached a fair and equitable agreement and did it on pretty reasonable terms,” he said. “John (Goode) and the sheriff have been good to work with and we are glad to get away from the one year deals and get back to a multi-year agreement.” Strang updated the board on the 911 system. “They found several mistakes in some of the road signs and addresses,” Strang said. “They are going to try to complete the list

of all the mistakes they found and do all the changes at one time.” A resolution in support of the Second Amendment and opposing the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms was passed in Effingham County and Strang urged board members to pass it as well. “I am a huge Second Amendment person and this is very important to me,” Strang said. “This means absolutely nothing to the people voting in Springfield, but I would like to take and get it written up for Greene County.” Board members, while not against the resolution, wanted more time to research the resolution and it was tabled until next month.

How about that one over there? Patty Hires points out a specifically beautiful plant to her sister, Linda Osborn, at Whiteside Park in White Hall Saturday morning during the North Greene Garden Club and North Greene FFA annual plant sale.

Hard at work Kadence Ford and Skyler Dixon are hard at work making wooden planter boxes for the plants they purchased during the North Greene FFA annual Ag Day held Friday at the high school. In addition to games, farm equipment to climb on and food, the FFA also had plants for sale and FFA students helped the kids from Roodhouse Elementary to build a plant box for the plants they purchased.

Student (Continued from A1) go to Maryland to participate, Geers is in the process of earning the money to make the four-day trip, which will include airfare and hotel stay. The school paid Geer’s $50 entry fee into the conference. Geers said it was all more or less a fluke with her having chosen cyber security, simply because it sounded the most interesting. “It’s not like I had studied anything about it beforehand,” Geers said. “You take a test in whatever subject you choose and you are placed according to your scores. I was talking to all of these people that were on the stage that took it and they were telling me they’ve been studying for this for

an entire year, took classes on it and everything.” She actually thought they had made a mistake in the scoring. “I thought they had forgot I was on stage or had gotten the list of names wrong,” Geers said. “I didn’t know anything about it — I just took the test to see what would happen — I had no idea what I was doing.” Geers placed first in her event at the regional level held at Western University in Macomb, which qualified her for the State competition. Geers agrees that it is probably a once in a lifetime chance she has been given and she’s looking forward to the challenge. “I’m really looking forward to

going because I have never been out to the East Coast before,” she said. “I’m also looking forward to meeting the people from all over but especially seeing the people that I met at state who also qualified for this. It’s going to be fun to see them again.” Regardless of how she made it to nationals, the fact remains that she now has to raise approximately $2,000 to $3,000 to be able to go. To help raise the money, a ribeye cookout will be held on the Carrollton Square on Friday, May 25 and on Sunday, June 10 the Eldred American Legion will be holding a chicken dinner with proceeds to go towards Geer’s Baltimore trip. Both events begin at 11 a.m.

“I enjoyed getting to see my communities and going to visit all the businesses to see what they have to offer,” she said. “I also like the opportunity of being able to open up my own business and getting that experience along with meeting new people.” Zion Thomas, also from North Greene, called his business Thomas Framework Photography. Instead of using plain old letters to create words like “Farm,” or “Family,” he scoured the county for everyday items that formed specific letters. “I kind of have an eye for things like that so I just drove around looking,” Thomas said. “I would see letters formed into like the side of buildings, on posts and benches and stuff like that.” While he would like to take credit for the idea, he said he got the idea from his grandma. “My grandma used to do stuff like this when I was little and I saw her do it,” Thomas said. “Now that I have the opportunity to start my own business, I thought this would be, if nothing else, a very unique business.” Thomas said the class was very informative to him. “I have grown up in Greene County my entire life and I didn’t realize just what goes on around here,” he said. “I didn’t know just what specifically each business does or the contributions they make to the community.” Delaney Bell, also from North Greene, created Delaney’s Decals, offering a wide variety of vinyl decals for everything from water bottles to flower pots to dog bowls.

Bell said she was glad she took the class. “I have learned many life skills through taking this class,” she said. “I also learned that it is very hard to start and run your own business. I would definitely recommend this class to everyone.” Next year’s class of students will almost double this year’s number, with 17 students signed up take the course from all four local high schools. “The CEO class is one of the best investments we can make in the economic future of our area and our nation,” Reinnert said. “The success of this program is due entirely to the dedication and efforts of the students, working board, business partners, mentors and school districts. They have all come together to make this a remarkable experience for our students.” This year, as an extra incentive, Illinois Electric Cooperative donated $5,000 to be used toward scholarships. “We let the kids decide how the money would be divided up,” Reinnert said. “They decided that $2,500 went to the business that made the most money here tonight; $500 to the best trade show booth and $1,000 to the top student, which they voted on themselves.” This is Reinnert’s last year as facilitator. Next year’s class will be taught by Jennifer Sellars, a former business teacher at Winchester. “It’s been a privilege to be able to spend time with and get to know the kids in this program the last two years,” Reinnert said. “But I know I am leaving it in more than capable hands with Ms. Sellars.”

Trade show (Continued from A1) Q Planning and managing a Quarter Auction, their class business for the year. Q Hosting two investor lunches. Q Creating their own business. Q Designing and running their own booth at the trade show. Q Interacting with various business professionals to practice those important “soft skills.” “Our area business community opened its arms to these young people, which resulted in our students receiving a world-class business education before they’ve even had the chance to graduate from high school,” Reinert said. Haylee Brickey, a senior at North Greene, created Haley’s Pretty Packages for her business, offering gift and candy arrangements for a variety of occasions including Mother’s Day, graduation, birthdays and more. Brickey said she got the idea while looking for a gift for someone. “I’ve always liked to craft and while I was on Pinterest looking for a gift for someone I saw these candy and gift arrangements and thought to myself, ‘I can do that’ and just turned it into a business,” she said. “I tried to have a little of something for whatever occasion might arise. One of my favorite arrangements is the garden arrangement, which includes everything from flower seeds to a shovel and just about anything else you would need to do gardening. My idea was that it would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the mom who likes to garden.” Brickey said she got a lot out of the class.

Walkerville Baptist Church news From the desk of Pastor David Slagle. This past Saturday morning we enjoyed a time of fellowship taking care of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house; painting, mowing, outside and window washing and cleaning inside of His house. The weather was great and the snacks and fellowship topped it all off. This evening as I sat in my study and looked back at the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events, which started with a good group in attendance for Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, including 16 mothers. We enjoyed special music and readings honoring our mothers. Our message was from Luke 1:34-38; John 2:1-5; Matthew 12:46-50; John 19:25.

Mary was a mother called by God who submits completely to Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will. Mary was a mother called by God who never relinquished the title of mother. At the cross she crumbled to the ground at the sight of her son hanging there. Prophecy was suddenly true. The cross cut deeply into Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. Despite the pain, however Mary was there. She was a mother from the beginning, and a mother at the end. A mother called by God never relinquishes the title. Mary had a chance to see Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire plan played out. She suffered through the crucifixion, celebrated the resurrec-

tion, and even was a part of the small group that witnessed the powerful presentation of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:14) Here are some prayer needs: Ray, Patty, Harold, Sam, Darla, Robert, Margie, Bonnie, Erma Lou. Also please remember those who have lost loved ones recently. We continue to seek Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidance in the repairs to His house. Please do not forget each day to pray for the lost in our community We invite you to worship with us each Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday evening Bible study at 6:30 p.m.

Hillview Southern Baptist Church news Bro. Jason Holliman, Pastor Alice Ford, reporter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dayâ&#x20AC;? Announcements: Bro. Bill Smith was our speaker in the absence of our Pastor Bro. Jason. We recognized all the mothers who worshiped with us this morning. Special Music: Sabrina Crabtree played a couple of piano solos; Kayla McCaherty & Corey McGee sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go Rest High on that Mountainâ&#x20AC;? Rachel (Smith) Cox also sang before

her father â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bro. Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spoke. Message: â&#x20AC;&#x153;With whom can you compare God?â&#x20AC;? Isaiah 40: 12 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? God knows all about everything. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a good shepherd, caring for his sheep. As a mother cares for her child, God cares for us.

Psalm 3: 1-8 We are all faced with problems and we need to look to God for help as we would look to our Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we were hurt, as a child. David knew God was his shield. We need to realize that God is there for us and the closer we draw to God the better He can hear us. We have a God that can handle any problem we might have. Do you take your problems to the one who knows everything and can help you?

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;2 Corinthians 12:7-9 NIV

ow often do you find yourself praying to be relieved of your pains and infirmities? Perhaps it would be better to pray to have the strength, courage and patience to bear your infirmities. This prayer becomes increasingly important as we age, since our bodies eventually wear out. As the saying goes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old age is not for sissies,â&#x20AC;? at least in part because the elderly almost invariably have their share of chronic aches and pains. As the writer Philip Roth remarked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old age isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a battle, old age is a massacre.â&#x20AC;? But it is also worth remembering that certain infirmities actually contribute to our character, making us better people by reining in certain untoward desires or tendencies. So how do we develop the necessary strength of spirit to bear our pains and infirmities? One way is to get in the habit of doing small things every day which are difficult, painful, or just plain boring. This practice will help you to develop fortitude and strength of spirit for the more difficult and painful episodes, which are bound to come. And remember that in your suffering, you are in some ways sharing in the suffering of our Lord, who suffered greatly in his time here on earth. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christopher Simon

Avoiding tick and mosquito born illness As the weather warms up, we’re starting to see ticks and mosquitoes. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is reminding people about simple precautions they can take to avoid bites. “Ticks can carry diseases like Lyme disease, spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis, while mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus,” Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. said. “These diseases can cause anywhere from mild to severe illness, and even death in some cases. To protect yourself from both, use insect repellent that contains DEET and follow some simple precautions.” According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, disease cases from mosquito, tick, and flea bites have tripled in the U.S. during the 13 years from 2004 through 2016. Reported cases from mosquito and tick bites in Illinois have increased by more than half (58 percent) from 2005 to 2016. Many tick-borne diseases have similar symptoms. The most common symptoms can include fever, chills, aches and pains, and rash. Within two weeks following a tick bite, if you experience a rash that looks like a bull’s-eye or a rash anywhere on your body, or an unexplained illness accompanied by fever, contact your doctor. Early recognition and treatment of the infection decreases the risk of serious complications. Tell your health care provider the geographic area in which you were bitten or traveled to help identify the disease based on ticks in that region. A fairly new virus called Bourbon virus has been associated with tick bites and has been found in a limited number of cases in the Midwest and southern U.S. People diagnosed with Bourbon virus disease have symptoms including fever, fatigue, rash, headache, other body aches, nausea, and vomiting. They also had low blood counts for cells that fight infection and help prevent bleeding. Some people who were infected later died. Ticks are commonly found on the tips of grasses and shrubs. Ticks crawl, they cannot fly or jump. The tick will wait in the grass or shrub for a person or animal to walk by and then quickly climb aboard. Some ticks will attach quickly and others will wander, looking for places like the ear, or other areas where the skin is thinner. Simple tips to avoid ticks bites include: Q Wear light-colored, protective clothing— long-sleeved shirts, pants, boots or sturdy

shoes, and a head covering. Treat clothing with products containing 0.5 percent permethrin. Q Apply insect repellent that contains 20 percent or more DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that lasts several hours. Q Walk in the center of trails so grass, shrubs, and weeds do not brush against you. Q Check yourself, children, other family members, and pets for ticks every two to three hours. Q Remove any tick promptly by grasping it with tweezers, as close to the skin as possible and gently, but firmly, pulling it straight out. Wash your hands and the tick bite site with soap and water. The most common mosquito-borne illness in Illinois is West Nile virus. West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected Culex pipiens, or “house” mosquito. Mild cases of West Nile virus infections may cause a slight fever or headache. More severe infections are marked by a rapid onset of a high fever with head and body aches, disorientation, tremors, convulsions and, in the most severe cases, paralysis or death. Symptoms usually occur from three to 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. People older than 50 are at higher risk for severe illness from West Nile Virus. There are some simple precautions you can take to Fight the Bite. Precautions include practicing the three “R’s” – reduce, repel and report. Q Reduce- make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens. Repair or replace screens that have tears or other openings. Try to keep doors and windows shut. Eliminate, or refresh each week, all sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed, including water in bird baths, ponds, flowerpots, wading pools, old tires, and any other containers. Q Repel- when outdoors, wear shoes and socks, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535, according to label instructions. Consult a physician before using repellents on infants. Q Report- report locations where you see water sitting stagnant for more than a week such as roadside ditches, flooded yards, and similar locations that may produce mosquitoes. The local health department or city government may be able to add larvicide to the water, which will kill any mosquito eggs.

Juliana Mashburn Juliana Frances Mashburn, 103, died at 9:30 a.m., Monday, May 14, 2018 at the home of her daughter and son in-law. She was born in Jersey County Oct. 8, 1914, and was the only child born to Walter and Anna (Jilek) Cope. Juliana attended Jersey Township High School, and at 22 years of age married L. Leon Mashburn. The two married Aug. 4, 1937 in St. Charles, Mo., and their marriage was blessed with two children and 46 years together before his death Nov. 6, 1983. She was devout in her Catholic faith, and was steadfast in her love for family. Her mother died when Juliana was just 14 years of age, and was lovingly cared for by her aunt and uncles. Her giving and loving nature was present as she cared for her father in his elderly years, and later for her husband after his devastating car accident. Juliana also possessed a love of life, and had the uncanny ability to adjust and adapt to any situation. She was young at heart and jumped at every opportunity to try a new adventure and see the world. She is survived by her daughter and son in-law, Ann and Charles Lane of Jerseyville; her two grand-

children, Tracey (Jerry) Bryce of Rosemount, Minn. and Chuck (Danielle) Lane of Centralia; and four great grandchildren, Carson Andrew Bryce, Gracie Ann Bryce, Parker Charles Lane and Mikayla Arlene Lane. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her son, Richard “Dickie’ Mashburn Feb. 18, 2011. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. Saturday at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Jerseyville, with Father Steve Pohlman officiating. Burial will take place in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Jerseyville. Memorials may be given to the Jersey County Health Department or to BJC Hospice.

Frances Daniels Frances Jean (Turner) Daniels, 86, died at 7:59 a.m, Friday, May 11, 2018 at the Mt. Gilead Shelter Care in Carrollton. Visitation was held from 4 to 7 p.m., Monday, May 14 at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville. Funeral Services were

conducted at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Kane Baptist Church with the Rev. Chuck Keene officiating. Burial was held in the Kane Cemetery. Memorials may be given to the Kane Baptist Church, where she has been a longtime member.

Boby ‘Bob’ Bell Boby Dale “Bob” Bell, 50, died at 10:35 p.m., Saturday, May 12, 2018 at his home in Jerseyville, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was born in Crystal City, Mo. June 27, 1967 to Roy and Mary F. (Barton) Bell and grew up as part of a large family in De Soto, Mo. At the age of seventeen, Bob relocated to Jerseyville, where he met Dawanna Renee “Dawn” Dilks and together, they would create many wonderful memories and share in the joys of raising their three children throughout their 28 years together, prior to her death Dec. 19, 2014. He started Bell’s Masonry in Jerseyville at the age of 18 and worked tirelessly throughout the area for 27 years, before his health required him to retire nearly five years ago. Bob was fiercely loyal to Dawanna and his children, and worked tirelessly to provide the best life possible for them all. When he was not working, which was extremely rare, he enjoyed spending time outdoors, whether it be fishing or hunting. Surviving are his mother, Mary Davis of Jerseyville; two daughters, Heather Womack of Springfield and Courtney Dobbs of Cadet, Mo.; two sons, Scotty Bell of Jerseyville and Cody Bell of Wood River; seven grandchildren, Hayden,

MaKinley, Brantley, Hunter, Lexi, Ryder and Serenity; brothers, James Bell Sr. of Jerseyville; James Davis of Jerseyville; Geoffrey Davis of Duncan, Okla.; sisters, Karen Klunk of Dow; his twin sister, Barbara Lucas of Hillsboro, Mo. and Denise “Molly” Newby of Brighton; along with a host of extended family members. He was preceded in death by his father, Roy Bell; his lifelong companion, Dawanna Dilks; two daughters, Dora and Jennifer Bell; a granddaughter, Reagan; three brothers, Lee Bell, Terry Lynn Davis and Kenney Bell; as well as a son in-law, Brian Womack. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, May 16 at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville, where funeral services will be conducted at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 17. Burial will take place at the Kane Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the American Cancer Society.

Card of Thanks We would like to take this time to thank family, friends and neighbors for all acts of kindness shown to us with the passing of our son Kris. Also, special thanks to Larry Alexander, Reverend Bob and the ladies of the Methodist Church, Father Marty and Father Steve. Again, thank you from the family of Kristopher R. Kanallakan.

IEMA highlights emergency preparedness for people with functional and access needs While most disasters can’t be prevented, the stress of such situations can be reduced significantly through personal preparedness. This is particularly important for households with members who have disabilities, functional needs or may need assistance during an emergency. Throughout May, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and local emergency management agencies will highlight the importance of disaster preparedness for people with functional and access needs. “Disasters can cause power outages, force people to evacuate their homes or create other dangerous situations,” IEMA Acting Director William P. Robertson said. “We encourage everyone to be prepared, especially those who may have medical, functional or access needs.” Robertson said IEMA has information available on the Ready Illinois website (www.Ready.Illinois.gov) to

help people and caregivers prepare for emergencies. A guidebook, Emergency Preparedness Tips for Those with Functional Needs, offers preparedness tips for people with visual, cognitive or mobility impairments, people who are deaf or hard of hearing, those who utilize service animals or life support systems, and senior citizens. For each functional need, the guidebook provides a list of supplemental items for a disaster kit, tips on developing an emergency plan, suggestions on how to be better informed about community emergency planning, and a checklist of preparedness activities. The Ready Illinois website also offers more than two dozen preparedness videos in American Sign Language on such topics as what to do before, during and after tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flooding, how to build an emergency supply kit, and what to do if you’re instructed to evacuate.

Luke Combs coming to State Fair Up and coming country superstar Luke Combs is headed to the Illinois State Fair where he will be the featured concert in the Grandstand on Tuesday, August 14. The authentic and fiery, Ashley McBryde, will be the opening act on what is Agriculture Day at the fair. This singer/songwriting pair is sure to provide country fans with a jampacked, electrifying show. Watching Luke Combs give his all during a sweaty, jam-packed show in Nashville for rowdy fans and radio power-players is to understand why he's come so far, so quickly. Both onstage in front of thousands or alone in a room with his guitar, the North Carolina singer-songwriter knows who he is, where he comes from and where he wants to go. And on his debut album for River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, This One's for You, he invites listeners to share in his remarkable journey. "My friends, the guys in my band, and my parents helped me through so much and were always very encouraging. That's where this song (This Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s For You) was born from and why it's very special to me,â&#x20AC;? Combs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I named the album that because it sums up my whole life." A collection of 12 songs all written by Luke, often with frequent collaborators Ray Fulcher and James McNair, This One's for You paints the most relatable of pictures. Songs like the driving "Hurricane" and the cautionary "One Number Away" capture the essence of heartbreak and bad decisions, while the winking "When It Rains It Pours" and boozy "Beer Can" celebrate life's little victories. In every song on the album, there's at least one lyric that will elicit a knowing "I've been there" from fans. McBryde also writes about her life experiences. You can get a glimpse into her life through songs like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Little Dive Bar In Dahlonega,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Next to LeRoy,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girl Goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nowhere.â&#x20AC;? She is one of Rolling Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Artists You Need to Know.â&#x20AC;? The magazine says McBryde has, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the swagger of Hank Jr. and the songwriting of Miranda Lambert.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fantastic country concert combination for the Illinois State Fair,â&#x20AC;? State Fair Manager Luke Sailer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled to have breakout artist Luke Combs headline and equally thrilled to welcome Ashley McBryde back to the Illinois State Fair. Ashley performed on the Rising Star Stage last year and her talents blew everyone away. It will be great to see these rising stars up on the fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stage.â&#x20AC;? Tickets to see Luke Combs with Ashley McBryde at the Illinois State Fair will go on sale on Saturday, May 19 via Ticketmaster.

May is Older Americans Month May is Older Americans Month in Illinois and the state's Department on Aging (IDoA) is encouraging its more than 2.5 million older adults to "Engage at Every Age." That's the theme of this year's recognition, which emphasizes the importance of being active and involved, no matter where you are in life. "You are never too oldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; or too youngâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; to participate in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotion well-being," Jean Bohnhoff, Director of IDoA said. "I encourage our older adults to take advantage of resources and social programs throughout their communitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; get out and do something new!" Governor Bruce Rauner has issued a proclamation, recognizing the contributions that older Americans have had on Illinois' history. "Older Americans are the backbone of our society," Rauner said. They offer the wisdom and guidance that will lead us into the future. Their contributions will have a lasting imprint on Illinois' history and Older Americans Month provides an opportunity for all of us to highlight those accomplishments." The IDoA and its network partners will be recognizing some of those accomplishments at its 20th Annual Central Illinois Senior Celebration on May 16 at the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. The event features free health screenings, information, exhibitors, prizes and entertainment and is co-hosted by Advanced Healthcare; HSHS St. John's Hospital; Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian, Jesse White; Illinois Senior Olympics; Memorial Medical Center; Senior Services of Central Illinois; SIU Healthcare; and Springfield Supportive Living. Springfield resident Carol Schempp will receive the 2017 Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame award for her commitment to health and the promotion of well-being for individuals of any physical ability at the event. For more information about programs and services to assist older adults in Illinois, their

families and caregivers, log on to the department website at: http://www.illinois.gov/ aging/ or call the Department on Aging at 1-800-252-8966 (hearing impaired call 1-888206-1327). For more information on the 20th Annual Central Illinois Senior Celebration, please contact Elizabeth Delheimer at Elizabeth.Delheimer@Illinois. gov. The text of the Governor's proclamation is below: Whereas, the State of Illinois is home to more than two million residents aged 60 years or older who richly contribute to our communities; and Whereas, older adults are members of our communities entitled to dignified, independent lives free from fears, myths, and misconceptions about aging; and, Whereas, each community in the United States must strive to recognize, understand and address the evolving needs of older adults, and support their caregivers; and, Whereas, the State of Illinois is committed to supporting older adults as they take charge of their health, explore new opportunities and activities, and focus on independence; and Whereas, the State of Illinois can provide opportunities to enrich the lives of individuals

of all ages by: Q involving older adults in the redefinition of aging in our communities; Q promoting home- and community-based services that support independent living; Q encouraging older adults to speak up for themselves and others; and Q providing opportunities for older adults to share their experiences; and Whereas, older adults in our state deserve to be recognized for the contributions they have made and will continue to make to the culture, economy, and character of our community and our nation; and Whereas, this year's Older Americans Month theme, "Engage at Every Age,â&#x20AC;? emphasizes that you are never too old or too young to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities: Now therefore, I, Bruce Rauner, Governor of the State of Illinois, do hereby proclaim May 2018 as Older Americans Month in Illinois, and encourage all older adults to stay engaged, active, and involved in their own lives and in their communities across the State of Illinois.

Just a bit too late This Griggsville-Perry player slides in just under the tag at homeplate as Cameryn Varble waits for the ball during Regional action at Carrollton Tuesday afternoon. Soon after Griggsville scored, the game was called for lightning.

Gov. Rauner proposes death penalty for mass murderers and killers of law enforcement officers Gov. Bruce Rauner asked the Illinois General Assembly to reinstate the death penalty for mass murderers and those who kill law enforcement officers. The proposal is part of a precedent-setting public safety initiative that the Governor unveiled in an amendatory veto (AV) of House Bill 1468 which also urges legislators to: Q Extend the 72-hour waiting period for delivery of all gun purchases in Illinois. Q Ban bump stocks and trigger cranks. Q Authorize restraining orders to disarm dangerous individuals. Q Make judges and prosecutors more accountable by making them explainâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the recordâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; why charges are reduced in plea agreements for violent offenders in gun cases. Q Free up local revenue to hire resource officers and mental health workers to help intervene and prevent student violence before it occurs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gun violence has rocked the nation and our state,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a responsible, bipartisan approach to the problem that will help ensure the safety and security of our children, our peacekeepers, our families, and our communities in Illinois.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Few crimes are more heinous than purposeful killings of children and peacekeepers,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t propose the death penalty lightly. We had to balance the need for safety and, in the end, we wanted to make it abundantly clear we have no tolerance for such atrocities in Illinois.â&#x20AC;? Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changes to HB 1468 create a new category of homicide called â&#x20AC;&#x153;death

penalty murder.â&#x20AC;? It would apply to offenders 18 and over that prosecutors charge with killing peace officers or two or more people without lawful justification. Defendants would be tried using a higher standard for determining guilt. Death penalty murder suspects would have to be convicted by juries â&#x20AC;&#x153;beyond all doubt,â&#x20AC;? not just â&#x20AC;&#x153;beyond a reasonable doubtâ&#x20AC;? required for guilty findings of other criminal offenses. Appeals courts would have to apply the same standard and conduct an independent review of the evidence with no deference paid to a juryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to raise the standard because we recognize legitimate concerns about the death penalty,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are intent on avoiding wrongful convictions and the injustice of inconsistency.â&#x20AC;? In the AV of HB 1468, the Governor extended the 72-hour waiting period to the delivery of all guns sold in Illinois, not just certain types of guns. Current Illinois law applies the waiting period only to handguns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the case of school or other mass shooters, a 72-hour waiting period may provide just enough time for law enforcement or school officials to detect danger and take action to prevent delivery of a firearm. In the case of someone who is suicidal, that time could mean the difference between life and death,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. The AV also reiterated the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for a ban on bump stocks and trigger cranks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These accessories that in the wrong hands can be used to assemble weapons of mass destruction,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. The language he suggested is identical to Senate

Bill 2343, which has not yet moved in the legislature. Public safety and legal experts agree these accessories are not firearms, so the ban is not an infringement of Second Amendment gun rights. The Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AV includes a Gun Violence Restraining Order Act to more quickly disarm those who are a danger to themselves and others. It is a reasonable balance between the Second amendment and other rights of gun owners and the public interest in preventing gun violence. An emergency order, triggered by family or law enforcement could prohibit gun possession for 14 days with probable cause. A search warrant to seize owned firearms could be initiated only by law enforcement based on probable cause. A six-month order prohibiting possession of a firearm could be entered only after a full hearing based on clear and convincing evidence of danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a streamlined mechanism to allow family members and others to flag the need to remove firearms from the hands of people who pose an immediate and present threat to the public or themselves,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, we must protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and ensure speedy resolution of the issue requiring clear and convincing evidence,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. The AV asks the General Assembly to pass a Gun Crime Charging and Sentencing Accountability and Transparency Act. Rauner believes citizens, particularly victims and victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families, ought to know why charges are reduced in plea agreements for violent offenders

in gun cases. The Act requires prosecutors and judges to clearly state â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the record â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the rationale for plea agreements, especially those that result in the release of habitual gun offenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We deserve to know how violent offenders are allowed back on our streets,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. Finally, Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AV amends the County School Facilities Sales Tax statute to let school authorities use the revenue to hire school resource officers or mental health workers based on local determinations of need. It is drawn from the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terrorism Task Force and has been favorably received by the Legislative Public Safety Working Group. The Working Group continues to meet and is expected to deliver additional recommendations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the kind of bipartisan public safety discretion that voters ought to have,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This use of this sales tax revenue, provided it is approved by referendum, is a sensible step toward providing adequate security for our schools and giving more local control to our communities.â&#x20AC;? Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public safety package includes other substantive proposals that cover interstate gun trafficking countermeasures, increased state trooper deployments, and additional threat precautions and deterrents for Illinois schools. The latter includes formation of regional threat assessment teams to help â&#x20AC;&#x153;hardenâ&#x20AC;? potential targets. The package fulfills the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pledge to deliver a comprehensive public safety package as a response to the mass killings in Parkland last winter.

ADVERTISE WITH GREENE PRAIRIE PRESS 618-498-1234

On the heels of the failure of the General Assembly to advance two major initiatives to help end the culture of corruption in Illinois, Gov. Bruce Rauner and Rep. Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville) today proposed giving Illinois the toughest public corruption penalties in the country to hold public officials accountable. "State government needs to earn back the trust of the people," Rauner said. "This legislation sends a strong message to politicians and public employees who think they are above the law that Illinois is fighting back." House Bill 5878, sponsored and introduced by Rep. Wehrli, increases or imposes firm penalties for more than 20 offenses to hold politicians and government accountable. "Public corruption has eroded Illinois' economy and morale for far too long," Wehrli said. "Our citizens deserve honesty and integrity in their leaders and public employees. These penalty increases will impose more serious consequences for those looking to take advantage of our taxpayers and encourage good government for generations to come." This week was the deadline to put term limits and fair legislative redistricting on the ballot to let voters decide on the issues this November. The General Assembly let the deadline pass without action, preventing voters from the chance to change the face of politics and government in Illinois. A recent University of Illinois at Chicago study found that the Chicago-based Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois is consistently number one in public corruption convictions of all the United States' judicial districts. Illinois ranks third, ahead of all other large states, in federal public corruption convictions on a per capita basis. Around one person a week, close to 2,000 people, have been convicted of public corruption in Illinois over the last four decades. "The people of Illinois

should be known for our rich farmland, culture, innovation, and economic success, not our debt and corruption," Rauner said. "This legislation is one great step forward in renewing our reputation by making those in power more accountable to the people they serve." Public employees, aldermen, state and federal representatives, and four of Illinois' last ten governors have been imprisoned for corruption-related offenses. "Political corruption isn't just a moral failing, it's an economic one. Corruption and cronyism have resulted in higher taxes, less economic growth, and special deals for special interests at the expense of the Illinois taxpayer," Rauner said. Writer Thomas J. Gradel and former Chicago alderman Dick Simpson estimated that corruption costs Illinois taxpayers about $500 million per year, in their 2015 book Corrupt Illinois: Patronage, Cronyism and Criminality. "Shady business as usual is no longer the standard for Illinois," Rauner said. "Our administration has been working for over three years to clean up our system through ethics reforms. We have closed the revolving door of state employees leaving the Executive Branch for lobbying. We have tied loopholes in the gift ban, ended corrupt patronage hiring systems, required state employees to disclose more about their economic interests and used online resources to increase transparency." Rauner also appointed the state's first Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Ethics Officer, tasked with developing a plan to create a more accountable government culture. He issued executive orders prohibiting state lawmakers from representing clients before the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board and requiring sexual harassment allegations be reviewed within ten days. While these reforms and penalties are significant progress toward more ethical and effective government, state

ethics law is also overdue for a comprehensive review to ensure clear and strong ethics expectations. In the coming months, the Governor's Office intends to promote a series of reforms to clarify outdated or unclear language and to close loopholes. Proposed Penalty Enhancements: QBribery: increases maximum penalty from a $25,000 fine to a $1 million fine. Q Receiving contributions on state property: doubles maximum fine from $5,000 to $10,000. Q Engaging in prohibited political activities: increases maximum fine from $2,500 to $10,000. Q Improperly serving on state boards and commissions: increases maximum fine from $5,000 to $35,000 QLegislators abusing their power for financial gain by: QAccepting honorarium QUpgraded from an ethics violation to a Class A Misdemeanor with a maximum fine of $5,100, plus surrender of honorarium to the state QLobbying for compensation or unlawful participation in representation cases QIncreases maximum fine from $2,500 to $200,000 Q Accepting other compensation for official duties Q Upgrades classification from Petty Offense to Class A Misdemeanor and increases maximum fine from $1,000 to $200,000 Q Engaging in corrupt activities that violate the Legislator Code of Conduct QSets minimum penalties for specific violations ranging from $1,000 to $35,000 Penalties will also increase for any legislator, public official or public employee fraudulently obtaining public moneys reserved for disadvantaged business enterprises and willfully filing false or incomplete financial disclosure statements. Finally, the proposed legislation implements a $50 fine for any legislator, public official or public employee who knowingly fails to comply with ethics or sexual harassment prevention training.

Report shows many Illinoisans exposed to nitrates A new report issued by Prairie Rivers Network (PRN) finds that, since 1980, over 322,000 people in Illinois have been exposed to nitrate levels in their drinking water that exceed the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 10 mg/L of nitrate, the federal drinking water standard. Sixty-seven community water systems across the state have experienced long term exposure to amounts of nitrate greater than 5 mg/L, levels that have been found to be associated with increased rates of bladder, ovarian, and thyroid cancers; birth defects such as spina bifida, limb deficiencies, and cleft palate; as well as methemoglobinemia in babies, a condition that

causes them to get less oxygen, more commonly known as Blue Baby Syndrome. The report, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinois Ignored Water Crisis: Preventing Nitrates from Contaminating Illinois Drinking Water,â&#x20AC;? shows that elevated levels of nitrates in our water are widespread and getting worse. Macon County is the most affected area in the state, where 77.6 percent of residents on public water systems have been exposed to elevated nitrate levels exceeding the federal MCL at least once. Many more public water systems across the state have had multiple violations for high levels of nitrate. Increasing numbers of central Illinois commu-

nities, like Moweaqua and Taylorville, have had to purchase nitrate treatment facilities to reduce nitrate levels in their community water supply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nitrates in our drinking water threaten public health,â&#x20AC;? Prairie Rivers Network Executive Director Carol Hays said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that puts an undue burden on communities that cannot afford treatment facilities to foot the bill for making their water safe to drink.â&#x20AC;? Treating water that has been contaminated is expensive. The City of Decatur spent almost $7.6 million dollars to build a nitrate removal facility with average annual operation and maintenance costs of

$67,000. Smaller communities that cannot afford such treatment facilities must provide bottled water to residents at a cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While this problem is very concerning, it comes with reasonable solutions in the Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy,â&#x20AC;? PRN Agricultural Programs Specialist Catie Gregg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ramping up farm conservation practices across the state can dramatically improve this critical water and public health issue, while also helping Illinois farmers be better stewards of the land, protect the health of soil and water, and improve their bottom line.â&#x20AC;? Due to recent funding cuts by the State of

Illinois, Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Soil and Water Conservations Districts (SWCDs) have seen decreased project funding and staff shortages, limiting their ability to help farmers who want to implement conservation practices. The state is also leaving millions in federal funding for conservation on the table by opting out of the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP). As a result, Illinois stands to lose over 340,000 acres of land from continuous conservation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conservation is a much less costly way to improve water quality. Funding SWCDs and conservation programs like CREP are essential to reducing nitrate levels in our water,â&#x20AC;? Hays

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinois is failing to provide resources for cost effective strategies to protect water at a time when communities can least afford additional treatment costs.â&#x20AC;? Prairie Rivers Network (PRN) is Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advocate for clean water and healthy rivers and is the Illinois affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation. PRN advocates for cultural values, policies and practices that sustain the ecological health and biological diversity of Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; land and water resources and ecosystems. It is a membersupported, nonprofit organization that champions clean, healthy rivers and lakes and safe drinking water to benefit the people and wildlife of Illinois.

Avoiding tick and mosquito born illness As the weather warms up, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to see ticks and mosquitoes. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is reminding people about simple precautions they can take to avoid bites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ticks can carry diseases like Lyme disease, spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis, while mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus,â&#x20AC;? Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These diseases can cause anywhere from mild to severe illness, and even death in some cases. To protect yourself from both, use insect repellent that contains DEET and follow some simple precautions.â&#x20AC;? According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, disease cases from mosquito, tick, and flea bites have tripled in the U.S. during the 13 years from 2004 through 2016. Reported cases from mosquito and tick bites in Illinois have increased by more than half (58 percent) from 2005 to 2016. Many tick-borne diseases have similar symptoms. The most common symptoms can include fever, chills, aches and pains, and rash. Within two weeks following a tick bite, if you experience a rash that looks like a bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-eye or a rash anywhere on your body, or an unexplained illness accompanied by fever, contact your doctor. Early recognition and treatment of the infection decreases the risk of serious complications. Tell your health care provider the geographic area in which you were bitten or traveled to help identify the disease based on ticks in that region. A fairly new virus called Bourbon virus has been associated with tick bites and has been found in a limited number of cases in the Midwest and southern U.S. People diagnosed with Bourbon

virus disease have symptoms including fever, fatigue, rash, headache, other body aches, nausea, and vomiting. They also had low blood counts for cells that fight infection and help prevent bleeding. Some people who were infected later died. Ticks are commonly found on the tips of grasses and shrubs. Ticks crawl, they cannot fly or jump. The tick will wait in the grass or shrub for a person or animal to walk by and then quickly climb aboard. Some ticks will attach quickly and others will wander, looking for places like the ear, or other areas where the skin is thinner. Simple tips to avoid ticks bites include: Â&#x201E; Wear light-colored, protective clothingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;longsleeved shirts, pants, boots or sturdy shoes, and a head covering. Treat clothing with products containing 0.5 percent permethrin. Â&#x201E;Apply insect repellent that contains 20 percent or more DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that lasts several hours. Â&#x201E;Walk in the center of trails so grass, shrubs, and weeds do not brush against you. Â&#x201E;Check yourself, children, other family members, and pets for ticks every two to three hours. Â&#x201E; Remove any tick promptly by grasping it with tweezers, as close to the skin as possible and gently, but firmly, pulling it straight out. Wash your hands and the tick bite site with soap and water. The most common mosquito-borne illness in Illinois is West Nile virus. West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected Culex pipiens, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;houseâ&#x20AC;? mosquito. Mild cases of West Nile virus infections may cause a slight fever or headache. More severe infections are marked by a rapid onset of

a high fever with head and body aches, disorientation, tremors, convulsions and, in the most severe cases, paralysis or death. Symptoms usually occur from three to 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. People older than 50 are at higher risk for severe illness from West Nile Virus.

There are some simple precautions you can take to Fight the Bite. Precautions include practicing the three â&#x20AC;&#x153;Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; reduce, repel and report. Â&#x201E;Reduce- make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens. Repair or replace screens that have tears or other openings. Try to keep doors and windows shut. Â&#x201E;Eliminate, or refresh

each week, all sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed, including water in bird baths, ponds, flowerpots, wading pools, old tires, and any other containers. Â&#x201E;Repel- when outdoors, wear shoes and socks, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535, according

to label instructions. Consult a physician before using repellents on infants. Â&#x201E;Report- report locations where you see water sitting stagnant for more than a week such as roadside ditches, flooded yards, and similar locations that may produce mosquitoes. The local health department or city government may be able to add larvicide to the water, which will kill any mosquito eggs.
