Council postpones ruling on chickens By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press

Carrollton chicken owners had their feathers ruffled for nothing as the city council postponed making a final ruling on the legality of chickens within the city limits. At the workshop meeting on April 30, alderman Joe Harness reminded the council that they had yet to make a final determination on the legality of possessing chickens within the city. There is a city ordinance in place that prohibits the keeping of chickens or rabbits within the city limits. The line became blurred last August

when a resident asked if he could have chickens and was told he could. Several other people in the city had chickens including a police officer. Dr. August Adams inquired about the legality of chickens prior to building a fence around his adjacent lot. He was told it was OK to have up to six chickens but no roosters. However, he was later told he could not have the chickens per the ordinance. The chicken ordinance committee, which consists of Aldermen Sean Walker, Harness and Tom Wilson, was supposed to meet and deliver a final determination to the council to be voted on at the May 14 meeting. This, however, was postponed

with Wilson saying the committee had not had a chance to meet. The water and sewer committee did meet and presented a proposal to increase water rates to lessen the deficit in the water department. Water rates will increase 50 cents to $6.50 for the first 2,000 gallons and $7 per thousand gallons after that. “We decided on a small increase starting with the June 1 bill,” alderman Duane Freand said. “We’ll see how it goes for a year but this way it won’t affect our smaller water customers as much.” Last year the water department operated on a $56,000 deficit. The 50-cent increase will reduce this defi-

cit to $13,000 this year. Also tabled was a motion to replace the water plant lighting. “We still have in place the lighting that was put in there when the building was built,” water plant head Rick Goans said. “They are the older style with single incandescent bulbs, 30-foot in the air. Some of the sockets have come out of those.” Goans presented a bid from Pointer Electric to replace the lighting with fluorescent style along with redoing some of the conduit. “Have you looked into any grants,” Mayor David Stendeback asked. Goans said they had tried for grants before but those grants are

debuts new Learning Center and Internet Café Carrollton High School might be more than 50 years old, but the unveiling of its new Learning Center and Internet Café keeps it up with the most trendy educational establishments. The official unveiling was held May 14 with a combination open house and art show to showcase the transformation. “The whole idea behind this was to create a comfortable yet open and engaging atmosphere where students would want to come,” said Jan Jungk. “A place where they could come together to just hang out, do their homework, work on a project or even have a cup of coffee or a soda.” Jungk retired after working 18 years with the Carrollton School District but came out of retirement to see this project come to fruition. “Back when I started working here we were called librarians,” Jungk said. “With all the new technology, the librarian was replaced by the ‘media specialist.’” The wooden tables and chairs that occupied the center of the former library have been replaced by coffee tables and comfortable chairs, which fit in anyone’s living room. “What we have done is create different areas, which would be inviting to the kids whether

they want to sit and listen to music on their iPods or work on a group project,” Jungk said. “We had very little budget to work with but I kept looking until I found the best price on the furniture.” The project began back in October with a fresh coat of paint. “We had two parent teacher conference days and we had some kids come in and help us with the painting,” Jungk said. “Lynette Williams was very familiar with painting on cinder blocks so she was a big help. I had no idea how we were supposed to do it. On this type of surface, you have to go in and box out all those lines first, then prime it and then paint.” As luck would have it, there was actually money not spent in the media center budget last year. “I requested that they use some of this money to help buy some of the comfy chairs and the café tables,” Jungk said. “Plus, there was some other funds we were able to use, but a lot of what we have used has been repurposed items.” Jungk calls one area “Maker’s Corner.” “It contains an old repurposed computer desk,” Jungk said. “My husband replaced the top with a piece of whiteboard so they can work with markers and do calculations or whatever. It’s kind of an independent space where the kids (See, CHS, A2)

Alderman Wilson agreed. “I would suggest you look into that and come back with some more bids before we make any decision,” he said. The council did approve the hiring of two workers to provide summer help along with changing the date of the June council meeting. Instead of meeting on June 11, the council will meet on June 25, which was scheduled to be the workshop meeting.

Carrollton High School engineering students made history on the morning of May 5 with the successful launch of a weather balloon into space, followed by a successful recovery. The engineering team of Colton Miller, Travis Alexander, Riley Lewis and Jacob Lovel launched their first ever payload into space at an altitude of nearly 20 miles. “This entire project – from planning to the failed first launch to the recovery of the second mission in the cornfield was a powerful learning experience for me and my students,” teacher Pat Dugas said. “We will remember this the rest of our lives.” At approximately 7:40 a.m. the capsule was lifted to near space altitudes of approximately 95,000 feet by a large helium weather balloon before popping at which time a parachute slowed the capsule’s descent. “This mission was designed to collect high-resolution images and temperature data in the atmosphere and into near space,” Dugas said. “It was a tremendous success, although it took some perseverance to continue after the first launch attempt was a failure. Making adjustments after the first launch was a great learning experience, too.” The first launch failed due to too little helium added to the balloon, and the students were not about to have the same thing happen twice. “The total flight time was 105 minutes from launch to landing,” Dugas said. “This was faster than the model predicted because the students added too much helium this time causing the balloon to rise faster than it should have.” The balloon rose to an altitude of approximately 95,000 feet and during the flight the temperatures fell from 65 degrees at the surface to 78 degrees below zero. The balloon was equipped with a GoPro video camera for the mission, which collected two hours of high-definition video. Fueling the balloon’s lift was 180 cubic feet of helium. “We also used one of our robotic Mindstorms NXT bricks connected to the

temperature sensors,” Dugas said. “The balloon is specially designed for high altitude weather missions. The parachute was one designed for small rocket missions and all components worked flawlessly.” The resulting high-resolution video images were simply stunning. “We plan to use this information in our math (algebra and geometry), science (chemistry and physics), geography and writing classes,” Dugas said. “The temperature data, which was collected every 30 seconds during flight, will be used to discuss meteorology and cloud science.” This was an entirely student-driven project. The students created the Carrollton AeroSpace Agency (CASA) with a mission to launch, recover and collect data from near space. “The most exciting part to me, as a teacher, is that the students proved the old adage, ‘If you can dream it, you can do it,’” Dugas said. “This was an entirely student-initiated project and it’s fantastic to see them achieve their vision. I hope this mission inspires many more students to try new things.” Students had projected its descent and they weren’t too far off the mark. “The payload landed 20 miles southeast of Hillsboro along the flight path that our model predicted,” Dugas said. “It landed in a fallow corn field and was easy to find using the tracking software we had installed on it. I have never seen high school students this excited about an academic event before.” Their first attempt on April 15 was met with disaster, with the unit landing in a tree not far from the school. “Obviously, we were all frustrated with this failed first attempt, but I decided to turn it into a learning experience,” Dugas said. “When we got back, I asked them to analyze what went wrong and how we could fix it for next time. This is, in my view, what all successful people do and we immediately made plans for the re-launch.” Dugas said there are plans to launch CASA 14-03 “October Sky” again this fall with an expanded sensor package. To help achieve this goal, Dugas said any corporate sponsorship would be greatly appreciated.

By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press Carrollton High School art students showcased their work this year in an art show held in the new media center in the high school on May 14. More than 70 students in Paul Kesinger’s basic design, sculpture, ceramics and painting classes had 93 works of art ranging from drawings done in charcoal and colored pencils to paintings in both oil and acrylic, and some of the most unique sculpture pieces ever made. “There is an example from every single kid I have in my classes,” Kesinger said. “I’m actually

thinking about having two small ones next year instead of a big one like this because this is so big sometimes things get lost or not noticed among the multitude of artwork.” Freshman Kaitlyn Gray had two pieces in the show – an acrylic painting called “Stormy Road” and an abstract collage made with colored pencils. “I paint sometimes but I prefer to work with pencil and charcoal drawings,” Gray said. “I do have a painting in this show, but I like drawing a lot more. I go for the more abstract than the generic simple stuff.” Gray said she has been interested in art ever (See, art SHow, A2)

Greenfield high school students give classmate a prom to remember By CArmeN eNSiNger Greene Prairie Press Prom is an extra special time in the life of any teenager. Being chosen to be on prom court is an honor in itself. Most of the time members of this court are among the best looking, the smartest or the athletes who are so well known. Nothing is more validating to a teenager than being chosen prom king or queen by their peers. Just ask Greenfield’s newly-crowned prom queen Kaity Jones who may not fit into any of the aforementioned categories. In fact, according to her mother, Pam, the 18-year-old was diagnosed with Aspergers at the age of 8. According to WebMD, Asperger syndrome is often considered a high functioning form of autism. Children with Asperger’s syndrome generally have difficulty interacting with others and often are awkward in social situations. They generally do not make friends easily. They have difficulty initiating and maintaining conversation. “As a result of this, my husband, David, and I have been very protective of her to the extent of being over protective of her at times,” Pam Jones said. “So when all of this first came up last year we really didn’t know what to think.” Jones said last year one of the boys in Kaity’s class mentioned something to the Jones’ older daughter, Brittney, about wanting to do this for Kaity her senior year. “When Brittney came home last year and told us about this we went kind of said ‘Sure, OK,’” Jones said. “So this year when it got time for prom to come around again, he said we are going to make this happen.” That young man was Jared Henson.

Lend your voices to budget battle

Monday, May 26: Office closed for holiday.

TO THE EDITOR: It’s budget time in Springfield. The decisions legislators will make in the next weeks will have a direct and profound impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of everyday Illinoisans. More than most, we will see the impact, whether it be positive or negative, first hand. We work for WellSpring Resources. We serve more than 6,000 children, adults and families each year in Madison, Jersey, Calhoun and Greene counties through services for mental health and substance abuse conditions. Our work is a fiscally-sound investment. Many of the systems that will be affected by these cuts provide vital community-based services to vulnerable people of all ages. These services are far less expensive than alternatives such as jail, prison, hospitalization, nursing homes, or involvement with the justice system. State revenues cannot be cut this deeply without very real consequences.

Our wait staff asked what it was and we told him it was for missions, at the same time kidding him that it wasn’t his tip. Soon he came over and emptied his tip jar into our container. Then another waiter came over and put some dollar bills in the jar. And then another waiter emptied his tip jar into our container, and then came a wad of dollar bills.

her how great it was that she was on the court but how it was OK if she didn’t win,” Jones said. “The entire time leading up to prom, when someone would say to her, ‘Do you think you are going to win?’ she would say, ‘Win or lose, it doesn’t matter.’ She was just really excited to be a part of the prom court.” Kaity’s reaction when her name was called as prom queen is something her parents will never forget. “When she heard her name called, she immediately did a double fist pump,” Jones said. “She turned and went over to get her crown and sash and just smiled the entire time.” Kennedy Cole was another prom candidate and she was standing next to Kaity on stage. Kaity turned and said something to her. “I asked Kennedy what she said to her and she said she was doing OK until Kaity turned to her and said ‘Kennedy, you look beautiful,’” Jones said. “That just goes to show you a little bit about Kaity’s personality. She’s very kind and very outgoing and she was so proud.” Jones thought what Kaity’s classmates set out to do and succeeded in says a lot about their parents and the community as a whole. “Them doing such a selfless act really gives me hope,” Jones said. “Now days you don’t hear about kids doing things like this for other people and for this to be something that they set out to do all on their own – it just goes to show that their parents are doing an incredible job raising their kids in this area.” As reigning prom queen, Kaity will get to come back next year and pass her sash and crown onto the new queen. Jones said she just hopes Kaity’s classmates realize what a wonderful thing they have done. “I would just like to tell all of the junior and senior class how very much it means to Kaity and to us for them to do something so amazingly special for her,” Jones said.

There are also charging stations here because more and more kids are bringing in things that they have to charge.” Jungk’s daughter, who works in interior design, had a hand in some of the furniture for this area. “The kids call these the ‘shopping cart’ chairs because they are light and open like a shopping cart,” Jungk said. “My daughter said these are the ‘in’ thing now. Same way with the buoys which have replaced the chairs at the computers.” A buoy resembles a short barrel. It can be adjusted height-wise and has a rounded bottom allowing for movement. “They say these are good for your back and your posture,” Jungk said. “The idea is to get rid of excess energy so you don’t just feel like you are sitting there. The kids love them.” Unlike library practices of the past which prohibited food or drink, both are encouraged at Carrollton in the Internet Café, also located in the learning center. A tall counter hides two Keurig machines used for making steaming hot coffee, cider or hot chocolate and a small fridge contains iced coffee, hog wash and Cheerwine, a popular drink among teenagers that comes in a glass bottle put out by the Pepsi Company. Students can relax in a chair or love seat, setting their beverage on an end table while propping their feet up on an ottoman as soft music wafts through the room. “Kids can come up here before school and have a cup of coffee instead of just standing out in the hall,” Jungk said. “Or, they can work on their homework – anything to get the kids to come up here.” A variety of specialty coffees is offered. “We had a lot of coffees donated and we have narrowed it down to what the kids prefer the most, which is just a regular coffee, a caramel cappuccino, hot apple cider and hot cocoa,” Jungk said. “I was floating it for awhile buying it from Amazon Prime on my credit card because it could get here in two days, but now we are to a point where it is self-sustaining.” Students pay $1 for a soda, $2

I love art and creating things and I’m glad we still have art here in Carrollton.” The art show has floated all over the district starting out in the commons at the grade school the first year, followed by the band room the following year and then the high school gym for the past three years. Kesinger said his basic design class is a one-year class but the other three are just a semester each. “That is why you are going to see some kids have more than one piece in the show,” he said. “They might have a piece from the ceramics class and one from the sculpture class.” Art seems to be quite popular at Carrollton with 45 enrolled in the basic design classes and 15-20 in the other three classes. When Carrollton made budget cuts six years ago, the art program at the grade school and junior high level were one of the first things to go. Junior high students get half an hour of art every

Charging stations are located throughout the learning center to recharge phones, iPads, laptops, etc., and an updated wireless system allows greater Internet access. Eventually, Jungk would like to see the center open to various community groups who could take advantage of the wireless. As for the kids – they are loving it “The students had an input in this so they are able to own it,” Jungk said. “It’s not one of those things where they go away for the summer and it’s all done. They helped with it and they saw the transformation. We had former students, teachers and administration come in and help with this.” Plans are to air condition the Learning Center this summer using funds from a $50,000 maintenance grant the district received. It will become the most popular spot in the school then.

They also started a Twitter campaign encouraging all of their friends to vote for Kaity According to Jones, Kaity loves anything to do with dressing up, so being in the running for prom queen was right up her alley. “She’s a huge fan of the Disney Princess and always talks about what it would be like to be a princess,” Jones said. “Plus, she loves wearing dresses and just being pretty so when she heard that she got voted onto prom court, she was so excited about it all.” Kaity had no idea her fellow classmates were going to even nominate her for prom court. “She was sitting in class the day they announced the prom court and when she heard her name she looked at the teacher and said, ‘I didn’t do anything – I’m not in trouble,’” Jones said. “The teacher said no she wasn’t in trouble, that her name was called because she made prom court. She goes, ‘I did!’ and then started jumping up and down and cheering and was so excited about it.” Of course while everyone knew of the good intentions of her classmates, no one could say for certain how the voting would turn out. So, just in case, her parents prepared Kaity for not winning. “From that point on, I started telling

The month of May is well-known as the month of Mother’s Day, graduation, alumni and Memorial Day. There are two biggies - May Pole Day and Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic Ocean nonstop from New York to Paris France. These two started when Lindbergh delivered mail at night from St. Louis to Peoria. We lived close to Hagaman, Ill. Lindbergh followed the Semaphores (red lights) along the switches of the railroad and the beacon light at Reeter, Ill. As a little girl of five, I woke up in the night at the sound of Lindbergh’s plane and ran to a double window, praying to God to keep his plane in the air. Years later he married Ann Morrow who was a pilot. I heard mothers of all ages say, “She should stay home and care for her babies.” When their baby was kidnapped I believe everybody was home and asleep. When Dale was away with his work, Clifton was small. We had a twin bed in our room in case of fire. His (Clifton’s) dog Rex rested beside the furnace. One evening it didn’t operate properly. Rex licked me on the wrist. The three of us got out of the house. Dale came home to stay nights except when called out in an emergency. In 1926 a Memorial Auditorium honoring WWI soldiers was erected in Sacramento, Calif. Today on channel 9, I had the joy of hearing and seeing the Sleeping Organ. It has 3500 pipes in one place and 900 pipes in another. The wiring is in the basement. The gentleman organist played for us (without music) The National Anthem - he cares for this beautiful instrument daily. Right now he is playing Come thou Almighty King. During GCHS Chorus days I remember quite well our music director Mrs. Polly Knudsen sang, “People - Jessie and Willis Parks, Guy Secor, their wives and your parents expect us to sing Come Thou Almighty King and Holy Holy Holy. Mary Lou Love will you please invite the ladies of the congregation to join us? Billy Meng - please invite the gentlemen of the audience to join us on the last verse”? Mr. Jerome Rubles’ favorite hymn seemed to be Go Tell It On The Mountain. For us parents the GHS band always played St. Louis Blues. Each Monday at 12:30 p.m. channel 9 tapes of Mister Rogers are shown. Usually an educational trip is taken. Today we recycled glass jars, pasteboard boxes and cardboard. This makes me remember my first experience of recycle of 60 years ago. People bought Coca-Cola in green bottles. After drinking the Coke, they threw the bottle in my ditch. Ed Huff of Rockbridge had a small restaurant where he sold Coke, milk, bread, ice cream, candy bard, cigarettes and men played cards. I took the bottles to him and he gave me two cents for each bottle. For my baby niece, Vickie Gail Robinson, I used this money to buy Buzzy Bee. When she crawled she pushed the bee and it buzzed. The second purchase was a child’s Jaymar grand piano. My first memory of saving pennies - I was six years of age. When a junior in GCHS, I started saving for a Goddess of Time Bulova watch. It took three thousand five hundred - mission was accomplished. Recently the birthday of Josh Sibley was celebrated at Mulligan’s in Jerseyville with 40 family members present. Turkey, ice cream and cake were enjoyed. Josh is the son of the late David Dailey and Linda and Mike Sibley. May 4, 2014 Rev. Dennis and Iris Price of Troy attended the Rockbridge Methodist Church in Rockbridge. Hymns of Hope - Perhaps the name Charles Albert Tindley doesn’t sound familiar, but you most likely know his work. Known as the father of American gospel music, his two most popular songs are “I’ll Overcome Some-

day” (arranged and became popular known as “We Shall Overcome” during the Civil Rights Movement) and “Stand By Me” (whose version by the Drifters in the 60’s was a national hit). Born the son of slaves in Maryland and orphaned at a young age, Tindley never received any formal schooling, yet taught himself to read at age seventeen. He later obtained a divinity degree and became the minister of John Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church, where he had previously been the janitor. Starting with 200 members, Tindley used his intellectual ability, eloquence, and spiritual singing to amass a congregation of more than 10,000 members that is know known as Tindley Temple United Methodist Church. During this time he worked for civil rights, took care of Philadelphia’s poor and disadvantaged, and wrote more than 45 hymns. Including “We’ll Understand It Better, By and By”, “Leave It There” and “I Know the Lord Will Make a Way (Oh Yes He Will”). His hymns are now standard gospel songs in churches across the United States. As a young man, Tindley obviously took to heart the sentiment of Psalm 146: “Don’t trust leaders: don’t trust any human beings….The person whose hope rests on the Lord… is truly happy!… The Lord: who frees prisoners…straightens up those who are bent low….helps orphans and widows….Praise the Lord!” Although Charles Albert Tindley’s name may not be well known, his contribution to music that enables congregations to praise God in hope and strength cannot be ignored. -Sara Webb Phillips.

North Greene Elementary second grade teacher Sabrina Symes chats with some of her students as they dine on an authentic Mexican meal served by the Groovy Taco in Carrollton. The Mexican Fiesta wasthe culmination of a week of study on the Mexican culture. Left to right: Hunter Robers, Symes and Kearstan Smith. All 58 students in the three second grade classes particpating received a burrito, chips, salsa and queso sauce along with a $5 gift certificate.

donation to help pay for the cost of the food for the meal. Each student also received a $5 gift certificate to the restaurant so they could try other dishes. Symes said the students were all abuzz after they got back to class. “They were all so very excited by the time they got back to class,” Symes said. “While they loved the food, they really loved the gift certificates. One of them said to me, ‘This is like real money, isn’t it?’ and another little girl said she was going to go there that night to spend hers and eat some more ‘real Mexican.’” Camden said the $300 in gift cards passed out was more than worth the look on the kids’ faces. “Since they didn’t get to come to the restaurant for a real visit, I decided I would give them each the $5 gift certificate so they can come here and order something off the menu,” Camden said. “I know there are a lot of kids that probably don’t get to eat out much and I thought it would be nice if they were able to come here and eat. Then one of the teachers pointed out that they play a lot of ball games here in Carrollton so they could come redeem them then.” Symes said between the 58 students who brought a donation and the teachers, that they collected

around $110 which they gave to Camden to pay for the food. But Camden turned around and donated the money back to the class. “We were all just blown away when she did that,” Symes said. “First of all, we were totally not expecting all the food she brought in, and then the gift certificates and donating the money back to us. Two dollars doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is to the families of some of these kids. I can’t believe her kindness in doing so much for this class and not taking anything in return.” Camden said she never had any intention of keeping the donation. “When she asked me if the $2 donation from each child would be enough to pay for the food, I told her that would be just fine,” Camden asid. “I had in my mind all along to donate it back to them.” It turned out to be a good experience for everyone involved. “We had discussed in class what foods originated in Mexico and read books like ‘Chicks and Salsa’ so the kids were very excited to see the salsa,” Symes said. “They were all talking about it when they got back to class on how it was like it was in the story. We have already asked if they would come back next year and be a part of our study of the Mexican culture.”

Rhoades is retiring from the district at the end of this school year.

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Second graders at North Greene Elementary shouted a big muchas gracias to the The Groovy Taco in Carrollton for providing the class with a Mexican fiesta to cap off their week-long study of the Mexican culture during the week of Cinco De Mayo. Second grade teacher Sabrina Symes said Mexican week has become a tradition for their classes in May. “Every year we have a Mexico theme unit where we talk about their culture, learn a few Spanish words and phrases, etc.,” Symes said. “We do that all week long and then we try to culminate it with some kind of Mexican meal.” The students always enjoy studying the culture, but if you ask them what their favorite part of the week was, they will inevitably say it was the Mexican fiesta. “A lot of these kids have never really eaten real authentic Mexican food,” Symes said. “Sure, they have had a taco, but they have never really tried the Mexican cuisine so they are sometimes shocked when they do taste the real thing. So, a couple of years ago we thought we would try to see they did get to experience the real thing.” Last year the end of Mexican week culminated into a field trip to a local Mexican restaurant but that proved a little bit taxing, trying to coral around 60 students in a restaurant. So this year they thought they would try something different. “We knew we wanted to keep what we call the Taste of Mexico, but we really didn’t want to make it a field trip,” Symes. “So I recalled a new Mexican restaurant that opened last year in Carrollton and decided to see if they would be willing to help us out.” Symes talked with Tracy Camden, owner of the The Groovy Taco, and asked her if they would be willing to provide the food for the meal. “I was more than willing to do it,” Camden said. “She told me last year they had taken the kids to the restaurant but this year they decided they wanted to do it at the school. She offered to come down and pick up the food if I didn’t want to bring it up.” Students were asked to bring a $2

28. this week’s question is “what women gave a man butter to eat and then killed him”? Look in Judges 5. Mothers read this - Hebrews 1: 9. God has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. Nehemiah 8: 10 - the joy of the Lord is your strength. Remember children that a man’s work is from sun to sun, but a mother’s work is never done. Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may always know how to answer everyone. Col. 4: 6 - God’s love is always with you, so come and share it with us at Walkerville. Jesus loves you and so do we. See you in church Sunday.

I have sometimes lamented that the problem with life is not that we are not loved, but that we are not loved sufficiently. We all desire to be loved just a bit more than we currently are and perhaps appreciated a bit more for just how wonderful we think we are. But, in reality, we are loved perfectly by God. We shouldn't expect so much from our fellow man; family and friends do their best to love and be loved in return, but we are not the best lovers. The prize for best lover clearly goes to God, who made each of us perfect in our own way, and who loves us despite our failings. And what is more, he made the ultimate sacrifice, humbling Himself to appear in human form, being born in the humblest of circumstances, and subsequently suffering an ignominious death usually reserved for the worst of criminals, and doing all of this to give us a good example and to atone for our sins. So rejoice in this best of news: you are infinitely loved! - Christopher Simon

Two Rivers Family Fishing Fair back in Grafton for 2014 By ROBERT LYONS Greene Prairie Press

The 24th annual Two Rivers Family Fishing Fair is just around the corner. This year’s fair will be held Saturday, June 7 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Pere Marquette State Park. As always, it is an entirely free event. Fishing poles, bait and supplies are all provided. “My hopes with the Fishing Fair is to get the kids hooked on fishing, instead of some of the lesser desirable things that are out there,” Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Urban Fishing Coordinator Scott Isringhausen said. The Fishing Fair will be back in Grafton for 2014 and will feature a few new activities, according to Isringhausen. “Last year we had to move it to Jerseyville because of the flood,” Isringhausen said. “There were actually a couple activities that would have been first-time activities that were not there last year.” He said one of the new exhibitors is the Audubon Center from West Alton, Mo., which will have a station to teach visitors about natural habitats. Illinois American Water will also have an exhibit at the Fishing Fair, which Isringhausen said should be a fun addition. “It’ pretty neat,” he said. “Kids can learn about how to conserve water in an interactive trailer.” Grafton’s Raging Rivers plans to have a booth at the fair, but Isringhausen said he’s not sure what it will entail at this point. Kampsville’s Center for American Archaeology made its debut last year, and plans to be back again this year. Bow fishing, the bluegill pond, a 4,000-gallon aquarium, trout pond, baiting stations, knot tying, a reality fishing machine, fish identification, casting instructions, first fish photos, Camo the Clown and an appearance from St. Louis Cardinals mascot Fredbird are among the mainstays families can look forward to. Many of the

activities include chances to win prizes. “Something else that we haven’t had for a few years that we’re going to bring back is Radio Disney,” Isringhausen said. “They do a lot of games with the kids.” Over the years, the event has grown and now not only attracts visitors from around Metro East St. Louis, but from other states, as well, according to Isringhausen.

The Fishing Fair is held during National Boating and Fishing Week, as well as Illinois’ Free Fishing Days. During Free Fishing Days, residents are permitted to fish in Illinois without a fishing license. “If they bring the kids to the fishing fair and like to fish, Mom and Dad can then fish Saturday and Sunday as a family activity,” Isringhausen said.

The event is a collaborative effort between Illinois Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Fish and Wildlife represented by Pere Marquette State Park and Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge, respectively. ConocoPhillips and Cabela’s of Hazelwood, Mo., are the primary sponsors for the fair. For more information on the Two Rivers Family Fishing Fair, call 618-786-3323, ext. 1.

Grafton’s Music in the Park series begins June 5

Grafton’s Music in the Park is a free concert series presented by the Grafton Chamber of Commerce each summer on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Performances start at 7 p.m. at The Grove Memorial Park and last approximately two hours. The Grove Memorial Park is located at the corner of Main Street and Market (Rt. 3) in downtown Grafton. Musicians perform under the gazebo while listeners enjoy the outdoor atmosphere and majestic view of the Mississippi River. Picnic tables and benches are available but lawn chairs or blankets are recommended. The first concert will be the Five and Dimers, an Americana band, on Thursday, June 5 and will continue every Thursday in June and July with the last performance Aug. 7 by

Alone and Dying, a Grafton favorite, performing old time country and blues. “Thursday nights in Grafton are very special; the people, music and calming mood is what small town charm is all about.” Carla Newton, organizer of the event, said. There will be a 50/50 drawing during the concerts with all proceeds to be donated to the Jersey Community High School band program. Concert goers are encouraged to bring a can or dry food donation that will be given to the Grafton Food Pantry. Rain or inclement weather may cancel this event. These concerts are free to the public and are funded in part by the Grafton Chamber of Commerce, Jersey State Bank and other area businesses. For more information, go

White Pelican Art Gallery brings art back to Grafton

Sarah Ansell has returned to Grafton, to reopen The White Pelican at 127 E Main Street. Previously, Ansell operated The White Pelican from 2003-2008 selling art by local artists. The White Pelican reopened late January 2014. Currently the gallery showcases and sells handmade and fine art in a variety of mediums: painting, fiber/textiles, block prints, photography, glass, jewelry, ceramics, upcycled art, and more from 23 of the region’s talented artists. One artist, Chris Anders, of Springfield, overlaps from the original gallery. Ansell is excited to return to Grafton as a business owner and art supporter “Grafton is a great place to sell art, thanks to the supportive community, tourism attractions, and natural beauty,” Ansell said. During April, Art Workshops for Kids began for ages 4-9 with adult supervision or 10 and up. The classes are taught by Illinois state licensed art teacher and gallery artist, Heidi Hulliung. During the workshops, kids have the opportunity to choose a medium to create a drawing, painting, or others from still life stations while learning techniques and fundamentals of art. More art workshops for adults and kids are coming soon. In addition to the gallery and art workshops, The White Pelican

will host Art in the Yard, a monthly art fair in the yard surrounding the gallery. Interested artists can email thewhitepelicanartgallery@gmail. com or call 618-780-9197 for more information. “The goal is to create the street art fair experience found in urban areas. The yard that encircles the gallery is the perfect location, visible from the road and water, and an alternative way for more artists to show and sell their work,” Ansell said. Patrons can visit and shop at The White Pelican Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Like The White Pelican on Facebook to follow updates or visit www.thewhitepelicanartgallery.com

The beauty of a garden By CaRmen enSingeR Greene Prairie Press

Ask Tammy Winters of White Hall what her favorite pastime is and she will no doubt say it is gardening and her back yard is stunning proof of this. Winters, a former North Greene teacher, said she has always loved flowers and her love of growing things comes naturally. “When I was little, my dad always had a big garden every year,” Winters said. “I would go out and pick the green beans and tomatoes and go out and sell them to make money to go to band camp.” Now, she leaves the growing of vegetables to her husband, Harold, while she concentrates on a multitude of flowers beds, which not only take up most of her own back yard, but that of the neighbors next door, also. “It started with just one bed in the middle of the yard and then I started putting something in on the side, and then the other side and it just kept growing,” Winters said. “One time one of my little neighbor kids said ‘Can we go play in your maze.” And it literally is a maze with zigzagging beds with just about many plant varieties. “I try to have something blooming all the time,” Winters said. “The spring stuff like the tulips and daffodils are done now and the peonies, columbine and irises are blooming now. After that we will have the day lilies and daisies.” Winters said one important aspect in keeping a nice garden is the quality of the mulch. “I haven’t been able to get really good mulch for the last several years but this year I found some I really

Well, maybe not as breathtaking, but darn near it. The backyard and next door lot of Tammy Winters who lives on Ross Street in White Hall as spring flowers give way to summer blooms. Winters spends a great deal of time tending her garden which features a maze of different flower beds arranged so something will be in bloom year round to add a splash of color.

like,” she said. “Some of the mulch will be too big and branchy and then some of it is too fine. I found this at Lacross Lumber in Carrollton and it is just perfect.” Winters said it is going to take around 80 huge bags of mulch to go around all her many flower beds. “I used to buy it by the truckload but I found it is much easier to handle in the bags,” she said. “I just throw a bag in my wheelbarrow and take it to where I need it. So far I’ve used around 60 large bags and I would say I will prob-

ably have to have another 20 before it’s all done.” There is also quite a bit of work involved in maintaining such a huge garden. “Once I get it mulched and the weeds pulled then it’s not so much work but right now there is a lot of work going on in a person’s yard,” Winters said. “The rain has really put me behind this year. Mulching really makes gardening a lot easier plus you can get the stuff like Preen that you put down which also helps to keep the

weeds down.” Then, of course there is the watering which must be done all summer long. “Gardening is a lot of work but it is pleasurable work,” Winters said. “There is just something about digging in the dirt which relieves stress. It’s also good exercise because you are always bending down and digging so it keeps you active.” Winters is a member of several garden clubs including the North Greene Garden Club which she started several years ago. She, along with other gar-

den club members maintain the community garden on Main Street and also maintain all of the flowers in the barrels down Main Street and host the Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning in Whiteside Park. “It’s just fun to be around other people who have the same interest as you,” Winters said. “I’m checking into joining the garden club in Jacksonville. Our garden club has a lot of activities and you are always learning something new.”

Recognize safety hazards during yard work (MS) -- Attention, all green thumbs -- and the bodies attached to them: It's nearly time to get down and dirty in the garden Whether you're transforming your backyard into an award winner or just trimming the lawn, the CSA Group, a leading certification and testing organization, asks that you remember the following safety tips: Yard Work n Read the manufacturer's operating instructions and use products only as intended. n Wear protective eye and footwear (on eyes and feet, respectively). n What's that you say? Wear hearing protection when operating loud machinery, vehicles or tools. Power Lawnmowers n Know your mower and always follow the manufacturer's instructions. n Look for these safety features: a rear guard to protect your hands and feet from rotating blades; a "deadman" control that stops the mower when you release the handle; and an "up-stop" feature to prevent the handle from kicking up when the mower hits an obstacle. n Wear clothing that provides some protection, including long pants, a shirt with sleeves and firmlytied shoes with non-slip soles and hard toes. n All extension cords should be untangled, in good repair, have a three-prong plug rated for outdoor use and be of the recommended gauge for the load.

HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD ROUNDUP

Duo qualifies for girls state meet

Greene County will be represented by a pair of athletes at the IHSA Class 1A girls track and field state championship meet, set to begin with preliminary competition Thursday at O'Brien Stadium in Charleston. North Greene High School junior Brittney Kraushaar won the Beardstown Class 1A Sectional championship in the long jump and Carrollton sophomore Claire Meyer earned a berth at the state championships

by placing second in the long jump Thursday at the Staunton Sectional. Meyer cleared 15 feet, 2.5 inches, in her best long jump effort at Staunton, securing the second and final state qualifying spot by just 1.5 inches. Kraushaar's sectional title is her first, but qualifying for the state championship meet is nothing new for the Lady Spartans junior. She qualified in the long jump as a freshman before making in to Charleston in the triple jump last season.

Kraushaar went 32 feet, 7.5 inches, in her best preliminary round jump at the state meet last season, but won Thursday's Beardstown Sectional by 1 inch with an effort of 34 feet, 1.5 inches. Greene County's boys track and field athletes will begin the push for their Class 1A state championship meet Thursday as the Carrollton Hawks and Greenfield-Northwestern Tigers will be among the 18 teams at the Carlinville Class 1A Sectional. Competition

begins at 5 p.m. Thursday in Carlinville. The Hawks completed their regular season by winning the annual Dick Hamann Invitational Friday at Carrollton High School The Hawks' 159 points was 21 better than the secondplace Tigers from the Illinois School for the Deaf. North Greene placed third with 105 points and Greenfield-NW was fifth with 55. Cody Leonard and Tyler Frye were double individual winners to lead Carrollton.

Leonard cleared 6 feet, 4 inches, to take first in the high jump and was fastest in the 300-meter hurdles in 45.58 seconds. Long-distance specialist Frye won both the 1,600meter run and 3,200-meters — finishing in 4:54.8 and 10:37.4, respectively. North Greene's Spartans will compete at the 16-team Rushville Class 1A Sectional at 4 p.m. Friday in Rushville. The boys state championship meet begins Thursday, May 29, in Charleston.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP

McQuillan perfect in regional win SAM eLLioTT Greene Prairie Press North Greene High School pitcher Catherine McQuillan has made one of the sport's rarest feats almost commonplace this season. The Lady Spartans junior threw her second perfect game of the year as North Greene won its Hardin Class 1A Regional quarterfinal against Pleasant Hill 13-0 in five innings Monday in White Hall. McQuillan tallied 12 strikeouts and was also perfect offensively — finishing 4-for-4 with a double and two runs batted in. Classmate Arika Hull added a 3-for-3 effort with four RBIs and three runs scored while Halie Kraushaar and Kinsey McMillen chipped in two RBIs each. The Lady Spartans, the Hardin Regional's No. 3 seed, improved to 11-13 with the victory. They'll face No. 2 seed Carrollton in a regional semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Calhoun High School. The Lady Hawks finished their regular season with a 21-8 record after splitting a doubleheader with Southwestern Saturday at Wright Memorial Park. Carrollton took the opener 10-7 before the Lady Piasa Birds won an 8-5 decision in the finale. Madison Mountain hit a home run as part of a 3-for-4 game with two RBIs and as many runs scored in the Lady Hawks' win and Ellie Sturgeon homered during the finale. Like the schools' softball squads, Carrollton and North Greene's baseball teams will also face off in a regional semifinal after the Hawks beat Pleasant Hill 14-0 in five innings Monday at Carrollton High School. Sophomore Cole Brannan pitched a two-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts and one walk and Jacob Lovel led the Hawks' offense by going 2-for-3 with a double and four RBIs. Luke Palan and Jerrett Smith each

went 2-for-4 and combined for three RBIs and four runs. Carrollton improved to 15-14 with the win. The No. 3 seeded Hawks and No. 2 North Greene will face off in a regional semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in White Hall. North Greene ended the regular season with a 20-9 record after Routt won a 5-4 decision in nine innings Monday in Jacksonville. Connor Vincent homered to finish 2-for-3 with three RBIs and Adam Knox went 3-for-5 with a double and one RBI to lead the Spartans. No. 5 seed Greenfield-Northwestern and No. 1 Calhoun will face off in the regional's first semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in White Hall. The Tigers earned a spot there by beating No. 4 Brussels 4-1 in eight innings Monday at Brussels High School. The Tigers led 1-0 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and were one strike away from winning in regulation before Brussels drew even on a wild pitch to push the game past seven innings. "You see it all the time — if you give up a run like that late, usually the bottom just falls out on you," Greenfield-NW head coach Casey Spears said. "But these guys just kept battling and battling." Jordan Williams led off the eighth inning with a slow trickling bunt down the third-base line to spark the Tigers' rally. "I’ve told them that one of these games we’re going to win because of some bunts," Spears said. "Right there we just won the most important game yet of the year by playing small ball. Jordan Williams has proclaimed he’s the best bunter on the team all year and he showed us there that, yes, he is the best bunter on the team." Singles by Austin Plogger and Austin Bishop loaded the bases before Travis Goode reached base via an error on a bunt that brought home the game-winning runs.
