“There are some major cuts coming that is going to affect us across the board .”

school board meeting. Kirk has a daughter who will be a junior next year, along with a son who will be in kindergarten, both of whom will be affected by the cuts. “There are some major cuts coming that is going to affect us across the board,” Kirk said. “But my husband and I were really concerned about them cutting out the music program for the elementary next year. There is not going to be a music program at all and my little boy was heartbroken over that because he enjoys it.” Kirk and her husband are both professional musicians and credit part of their success to music programs when they were in school. “We all grew up having music in school and not only is it proven that it makes children more creative and sparks their imagination, but they do better academically when they can be exposed to the arts,” Kirk said. “So I was very worried about that and then I heard from my daughter that (See, north greene, A2)

Carrollton School District Roodhouse questions audit to update computer labs By CArMeN eNSiNGer Greene Prairie Press

By CArMeN eNSiNGer Greene Prairie Press Carrollton School District will be updating its computer labs following a motion to approve the lease of 150 computers from a Canadian firm that re-certifies leased computers from other companies. According to Tech Director Andy Thomas, the district was in dire need of updating its computer labs because all of the computers currently run Windows XP and Microsoft no longer supports the operating system, leaving the computers vulnerable. Two bids were received from two different companies and the difference in cost was less than $100. Microchip Computer Services of Springfield submitted a bid for 150 new computers and monitors with Windows 7 Pro, 4 gigabytes of RAM and AMD processors along with free shipping CDI, a Canadian company based in Ontario, presented the better deal, despite only $100 difference in price.

“We’ve dealt with both companies before, but overall CDI offers a much better package for the money,” Thomas said. “They are going to be giving us 10 free PC’s and monitors, which they call Hot Swap Coverage. So, should one or two of our computers go down then we have one ready right here to swap out.” Other advantages include a five-year warranty as compared to a three-year warranty through MCS plus Intel processors. “Another big advantage of CDI is that they do PC imaging and have offered it for free to us,” Thomas said. “They can image our computers so that before they are delivered to us everything is on them. A lot of time can be saved by this imaging process. We can purchase them outright or lease them and they, too, offer free shipping.” The board opted for the three-year lease option, but board member Chad Craig made note of one thing. “Either way we go we are no longer looking at an infrastructure purchase – these are (See, carrollton, A2)

After much discussion, Roodhouse Council passed the auditor’s report as was presented at the workshop at their regular meeting on May 21, even though one alderwoman had her reservations. Alderwoman Barb Alred, who missed the workshop the week before, said there are a lot of things in the audit she doesn’t know anything about. “I just don’t feel like this is a true audit and I can’t vote for it,” Alred said. “I don’t want to be responsible for things in here, to my knowledge, I knew nothing about. The audit in questions was from 2012 – from the previous administration. “This is the last administration’s audit – that is the reason I would like to have an internal audit from the Attorney General’s Office on it,” Alred said. “I don’t think it is right and we shouldn’t pass it off to the people with all the mistakes in here when we didn’t make them.” According to Alderman Charlie Huffines, the audit uncovered a lot of things that weren’t getting done but procedures have now been put into place to guarantee they are done. “We should be responsible to the people to make sure that the people who didn’t follow the laws and rules are prosecuted and find out what all did happen,” Alred said. “I just don’t think it is right and I think if the Attorney General came down here they could find it.” Huffines, however, said that of all the procedures which weren’t followed or done in a timely manner, the city only got fined for one. Alred wanted to table the passage of the audit until after the finance meeting on Tuesday, but Alderman Garrett Rogers didn’t agree. “Approving the auditor’s report ‘as presented’ doesn’t mean we agree with it or we think it is correct,” Rogers said. “It means we agree with the people who did the audit and how they did it. Personally, I understand what Barb is saying but if you want to recoup some of that or do whatever legally you have to do because it is indicated things which were supposed to be done weren’t, I think that is a separate issue from passing the audit.” Huffines agreed with Rogers. “It has already been sent to the state when it wasn’t supposed to be sent until it was approved,” he said. “Postponing it another month – who knows what that will mean.” The council also discussed the evaluation of Police Chief Kyle Robison. Robison was hired last July and was supposed to be given raises in January

and this coming July. “We missed January so we are catching up,” Huffines said. “Do we want to go ahead and give him the July raise tonight also or make him wait for that? He has never asked us for it nor has he charged us the $1 an hour extra he is supposed to get as K-9 officer. He just wants us to treat him fairly.” Robison was supposed to receive a $2,500 a year raise in January and another one in July per a satisfactory evaluation. Alred said if the procedure was to pay the extra for the dog and he deserved a raise in January, then he should get them, but the July raise should wait until it is due, per procedure. Robison will get retro pay back to January, but the issue about the $1 extra for the dog is still pending. “If there is ever any question, we could say we considered it in the salary when we hired him,” Rogers said. The council unanimously approved purchasing propane from FS now in order to get it at $1.59 per gallon. “We still have about a quarter of a tank in one of our two 1,000 gallon tanks,” Mayor Tom Martin said. “Nathan Newingham seems to think one tank would run us all year since the dehumidifier at the water plant was fixed.” Martin said last winter propane got up to $5 per gallon so purchasing the 750 gallons needed to fill the one tank now would be a great savings and the council agreed. In other action, the council approved: n Transfer of money from Water Reserve account to Water Maintenance and Operation checking to pay for the three extra water pumps from Vandaventer in the amount of $4,444. n Paying for Terry Ross to attend a mandatory USDI evaluator training class at a cost of $425. n Nathan Newingham, Mayor Martin and one other person to attend the GIS meeting at a cost of $50 per person. n Lesley Dossett to fill the vacant seat of Sharon Patterson on the library board. n Reappointment of Mike Harper, David Meade and Bruce Vortman to three year terms on the library board. n Renew the 10 year mutual aid agreement with ILEAS. n Motion to adopt the local support resolution 14-5-1 banning synthetic cannabis and other synthetic substances. n Motion giving a rebate of $800 to demand meter customers who average 75,000 KWH per month for over a year now through December 2014.

Memorial Day services were held Monday throughout the county to honor the brave men and women who have fought and died for our country . Carrollton and eldred American Legions provided the program this year .

Greenfield School District will be implementing the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program next year Principals Beth Bettis and Chris Raynor have attended several meetings with Four Rivers Resource Services staff to be trained as internal coaches for implementing this system and explained the system to the school board at its May 19 meeting. PBIS is a process for creating school environments that are more predictable and effective for achieving academic and social goals. A key strategy of the PBIS process is prevention. The majority of students follow the school’s expectations, but are never acknowledged for their positive behavior. Through instruction, comprehension and regular practice, all stakeholders use a consistent set of behavior expectations and rules. When some students do not respond to teaching of the behavioral rules, PBIS schools view it as an opportunity for re-teaching, not just punishment. “This program will kick off in the fall, although several components of this are already implemented in our district,” Greenfield Superintendent Kevin Bowman said. “The program’s aim is to recognize students who meet expectations and C

applaud them when they are doing well instead of focusing on negative behavior.” Bids were opened for the concrete sidewalk repairs at the elementary school with Juhl Construction submitting the lowest bid at $47,400. The work will be paid for out of the maintenance grant the district received. The board authorized the superintendent to post vacant extra-curricular activities along with posting three temporary, part time summer worker positions. It approved hiring the following personnel: Jennifer Grummel as a temporary, part time oneon-one aide and Hannah Schnettgoecke as the high school English teacher. Hunt Scholarship Loans in the amount of $2,000 were approved to Marissa Chapman and Kristen Bishop. In other action, the board approved: n Revised 2014-15 Risk Management Plan as presented. n Revised high school curriculum guide as presented. n Tabling the date of the July board meeting until the June board meeting. n Authorizing renewal of the District Treasurer’s Bond. n 2014-15 registration and lunch fees. n Revised elementary and high school handbooks.

(Continued from A1) the stipends for a lot of the extra curricular activities next year are going to be cut, putting those activities in jeopardy.” The board voted at the March meeting to eliminate the elementary music position to save the district an estimated $40,000. Eliminating the stipend positions, would save the district around $69,000. The stipends are written into the teacher’s contract so the possibility remains that those programs could remain with either the teacher volunteering their time to sponsor the organizations or another member of the community. However, an agreement must be reached with the teachers union first. Among the stipend positions cut are: two class sponsors at each grade level, chorus at all three levels, FFA, literary club, National Honor Society, play director, science club, student council, yearbook plus most of the assistant coaching positions in sports at

(Continued from A1) now operating costs,” he said. “Whether we lease or buy them we need to be allocating $25,000-$30,000 in operating costs in our technology budget. This is what we are going to be spending every year so when the state sends us less money we are going to have to find those cuts somewhere. In other business, school board recognized several students for their placement in a recent spelling bee for fourth through eighth grades. The top two students went on to compete at the Regional Office of Education spelling bee. Three of those students placed, including Jacqueline May who placed first at the eighth grade level, Elle Geers who placed second at the seventh grade level and Gabby Carroll who placed at the fifth grade level. Several high school students attended a math competition at the University of Illinois and competed in a state math competition. The sophomore team placed 10th overall and Chase McAdams placed in the top-25 in the state. Ag teacher Christie Joehl reported that more than 500 kids went through the different stations set up for the first FFA Ag Day, which was presented by

the junior high level. According to Superintendent Les Stevens, the board has two options as laid out by the board’s attorney: either eliminate the position or continue to have the position but bargain not to fund the position and seek volunteers to perform the duties. Kirk said she wanted to address the board to express a parent’s viewpoint along with that of a community member. “We have to invest in our kids and I really feel like our kids here in Greene County need, and especially North Greene, the exposure to the arts and humanities and to these other clubs to make them well rounded individuals,” Kirk said. “Just because we are a rural school district doesn’t mean our kids shouldn’t have access to the same things as in the bigger schools.” Kirk said she received a great response from the board members about her concerns. “They do not want to make these

cuts and I got a sincere feeling that they were not pleased with having to make them,” Kirk said. “Never the less, cuts had to be made and these were the cuts they made. I am just baffled why our state is not giving us the funding we need.” Kirk would like to see a group formed much like the sports boosters except geared toward the music programs. “Whether it is a Save the Music or Music Boosters but have something where individuals can help raise money to keep our music programs alive at the elementary,” Kirk said. “Parents are going to need to get involved and do organizations like this and I think those of us that can volunteer some time are going to have to do that.” Kirk said she would be more than happy to try to work with the elementary school to keep the music program going. “I am willing to do that because I am that passionate about it,” she said.

“But the school board needs to decide what the guidelines are going to be as to what criteria volunteers must meet. I asked them that so we could start reaching out to people in the community.” As for the extra curricular activities at the high school she said active participation in clubs is one thing colleges take into consideration. “I have a daughter who is looking to make her college applications attractive and you can’t just have the grades – you have to have all the extra curricular activities to be involved in because that is what colleges are looking for,” Kirk said. Kirk said she knows it is going to take more than just herself and husband and a few other parents to address this problem, but said you have to start somewhere. Kirk said if anyone wanted to contact her via her Facebook page about wanting to be involved or have any sort of input at all, it would be welcomed.

60 high school ag students. “I got people from the Farm Bureau to come out and stand by in case they needed help,” Joehl said. “But they ended up just standing back on the sidelines because there wasn’t anything for them to do – the kids did it all and did an excellent job of interacting with the pre-school students.” Media specialist Jan Jungk gave a slide presentation on the opening of the new Learning Center and Internet Café in the high school library. Students and faculty alike, including former students and former faculty, had a hand in renovating the old library “This really started with Jan’s vision and we appreciate her dedication with the process,” Superintendent Dr. Kerry Cox said. “It is really exciting to see the kids get so engaged.” Board member Rodney Reif agreed. “This is just another example of the great things going on in this district,” he said. “We have so many fantastic things going on right now.” Dr. Cox informed the board that the Illinois House had approved Gov. Quinn’s recommended budget which would extend the income tax rate and provide a $132,000,000 increase in

General State Aid. It, however, has not passed the senate. “Without the income tax extension our estimated proration of GSA would be 65 percent and we don’t even want to think about what that would be,” Dr. Cox said. “As approved, our proration would go up slightly to 90 percent. It also provides a $54 million increase in transportation which would make it right at 83 percent funded.” Neff–Colvin of Jacksonville was the low bidder for summer maintenance projects at the high school. Funds from the school maintenance grant are being utilized to help fund these projects which include: completion of window replacement in the locker rooms, coaches’ offices and industrial technology classroom; installation of flooring in the STEM lab and classroom; installation of permanent ramps in the entryway and HVAC work in the library/learning center. In other action, the board: n Approved maternity leave for Mindy Jackson, third grade teacher, at the start of 2014-15 school year. n Accepted resignation of Molly Reeves, high school Spanish teacher. n Approved fall volunteer coaches: Middle School: Michael

Robinson, head golf; John Kesinger, assistant golf; Breanna KemperDamn, head pee wee girls basketball; Greg Pohlman, head baseball; Reg Pohlman and Sean Walker, assistant baseball; Steve Adcock and Linda Davidson, cross country. High School: John Kesinger, head golf; Luke Spainhoward, Rodney Floers, Mike Price and Paul Kesinger, assistant football; Charles Helton, head cross country; Steve Adcock and Linda Davidson, assistant cross country; n Approved Lauren Pegue as MS Language Arts teacher and Rebecca Wilkinson as HS Business teacher and FBLA sponsor. n Approved class sponsors Mike Scott, Alex Pulido, Pat Dugas, Olena Hoffstetter, Amy Struble, Jim Caldwell and Christy Joehl. n Approved Early Start Literacy Camp teachers: Susan Kirchner, Audrey Jones, Lauren Phipps and Danielle Schroeder. n Approved STEM Camp teachers: Mike Scott and Pat Dugas. n Approved Alex Pulido as high school government teacher for summer school n Approved superintendent’s contract.

Rhoades retiring as North Greene athletic director By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press North Greene will be losing a piece of history at the end of this school year with the retirement of Marty Rhoades, who is currently the district’s athletic director. Both Rhoades and his wife, Nancy, who teaches eighth grade English at the Jr. High, are retiring this year to devote more time to their family. “I’ll be 65 years old and I just thought it was time for me to slow down because I still have my Cloverleaf Feed Company in Roodhouse, which I’m still involved in,” Marty Rhoades said. “I really don’t want two jobs anymore but the main reason is so I can be able to go

see the grandkids more.” Rhoades began teaching in the district in 1990 but he is probably best known for his 15 years of coaching basketball. During this time he amassed a record of 309 wins and only 126 losses leading the Spartans to eight conference titles and seven regional championship along with an appearance in four sectional finals. He also coached the Spartans to victory in five Midwest Tournament Championships and three Winchester Tournament Championship on his way to being named All-Area Coach of the Year twice during this time. He was also named IBCA Coach of the Year in 1992. He has served as athletic director for the past 12 years. Rhoades’ roots are deeply situated in North Greene.

past.” Many of this year’s donations were given on behalf of retired Sgt. Jack Speeks, who passed away earlier this year. Farm and Home Supply donated $750 in prizes and Mary Ann Farris, owner of the Hillview Café, hosted a bake sale for the derby. Several others also made donations towards the event. Tom Meehan, owner of Meehan’s is providing donuts to the kids for breakfast and Lighthouse Outreach Center is providing the hot dogs for lunch. Lays is donating the potato chips and Casey’s General Store in Roodhouse is providing the free bottled water.

participated,” Rhoades said. Coaching also afforded him the opportunity to build relationships with the kids he coach. “A lot of the time a student will come back from college or from the service and they will stop by my house and talk to me,” Rhoades said. “That makes me feel really proud that they want to keep in touch with me after I coached them.” In addition to his family, Rhoades said the thing he is most proud of is his temperament. “I coached for 15 years and during that entire time I only received one technical,” he said. “So I thought I tried to show sportsmanship. I’ve known a lot of nice coaches and administrators from other schools and I’ve had a pretty good relationship with all of them.”

Roodhouse Kids Fishing Derby set for June 7 By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press The Roodhouse Rez is hosting the 18th annual Free Kids Fishing Derby Saturday, June 7, sponsored by the Roodhouse Police Department.

Both he and his wife are 1967 graduates of North Greene High School and were high school sweethearts before marrying 45 years ago. Together they raised four boys – Patrick, Tony, Matt and Brian who has given them 15 grandchildren. It is these grandchildren which Rhoades wants to devote his time to. “My No. 1 priority is my family and I want to be able to see my grandkids more,” Rhoades said. “When you are the athletic director, it really limits you as to what you can do because you have to be here for all of the games. “ Rhoades said the highlight of his career, both on the court and off, has been watching the kids develop. “I loved seeing the kids get better each year they

empathy and dedication. “I hope to bring quality holistic patient-centered care,” she said. “I want to do what is best for my patients and their unique situations. I do not believe the same treatment applies to the same condition or the same person. I believe in individualizing my care and treatment with the input that the patient and family give me.” One of the biggest issues facing residents of Greene County medically is a lack of understanding on the patient’s part, Kulp said. “If you do not know you have high blood pressure or the problems that it can cause then you end up with complications down the road that could have been prolonged or avoided,” Kulp said. “It is so important to see a primary care provider at least yearly to detect your risks and early signs of disease.” Her activities outside the clinic centers around her family. “My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my husband and children,” she said. “My boys are involved in different sporting activities and musical endeavors and I could not be happier than when I am watching them at a baseball game, music concert, gymnastics event or any other activity. They are the center of my world.”

“We have the derby for kids because it is an opportunity for kids to see the police in a positive way,” Robison said. “Most of the time when kids or even adults come in contact with the police it is because we are called to handle a situation. This is our way of reaching out and hopefully having a positive impact on them.” It also gives the officers a chance to get to know some of the kids. “I want to literally interact with the kids who show up,” Robison said. “We will ride around the lake during the tournament on ATV’s stopping to give the kids water and talk to them about fishing. This is

our way to also get to know them. I personally feel that if a child feels comfortable talking to a police officer they may feel comfortable and trust the police as they grow older. That trust can potentially evolve and carry over to solving crimes.” Check in time will be at 8:30 a.m. at the main entrance of the reservoir with the tournament set to begin at 9 a.m. Anyone who goes to the lake prior to the start of the tournament will be disqualified. There will be two age categories for anglers – 10 and under and 11-16 and all children 10 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Weigh in will be at noon.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21

The Russian writer and dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn very astutely remarked that "the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being." All of us have the capacity for both good and evil within us and every day is a struggle to help the "better angels" prevail. Perhaps what separates the saints from the sinners is not so much that some sin and others don't, but that the saints recognize their sinful nature and are better at resisting their sinful impulses. The essential work of our lives is to know that this line is there and to stay on the side of the good, resisting the never-ending lure and temptation of evil. We should pray for the wisdom and discernment to recognize where the line separating good from evil runs, and for the goodwill and fortitude to stay on the side of the good. - Christopher Simon

CHURCH

Carrollton, Illinois

Walkerville Baptist Church news It showered a little which we need and there is a promise of more ahead. The farm work is coming along real good. Yesterday the sun shined in the afternoon and the dinners and family gatherings all went well. A good group at church and a good message. From Mark - The gift God gave you through salvation and why we should use it. The question time went well. The question for Sunday was who gave a man butter or milk, as K.J. Verson says milk, another said butter, so we decided it might have been buttermilk and then killed him. Judges 5. Jael was her name. There was a really good discussion, which was good on several questions. If you have a question bring it to us, and an answer of some kind we will find. The question for this week is, “What six men committed suicide in the Bible”. Two in Sam. 1 and Sam 2. 1 King 16, Matt 27 and Judges 16. We really missed Judy, but know she enjoyed her visit with her granddaughter. The flowers are so pretty for Memorial Day, as they are all in bloom. The cemeteries around all looked nice. Our prayer list is Melanie Mast (she’s in the Memorial Hospital in Springfield), Betty Newman (says she is dong great with her new knee), Ray and Patty Baldes, Ed Crabtree, Susie Kiefer, Garner family, Bonnie Hardwick, Brenda

Early, Brenda Sexton, Robert Lawson, Justin Lawson injured his shoulder, we pray for quick recovery. All through life this is true, friendship is like a book, it takes a few seconds to burn, but it takes years to make. Prayer is not a spare wheel that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a steering wheel that directs us in the right path throughout life. Remember if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses, Mat. 6. Also judge not that you be not judged. Mat 7, vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord. Rom. 12. If you practice honesty you will reap trust. If you practice humility you will reap greatness. If you practice hard work you will harvest success. Don’t let hate eat at you for it will destroy you. Hate is the gift of the devil and it is meant to destroy you and those around you will suffer. From the love of God as he is the judge and Judgment Day will not be a rewarder of the joy and presence of God. Forgiveness is easy, but we are not asked to forget. Memory is a gift of God we never want to lose. The devil is working on all hands. Come to Walkerville and receive the love of Jesus. If you do not like it the devil will always take you back. We miss you and pray for you all. Have a good week and I hope to see you Sunday.

GREENFIELD NEWS Do any of my readers remember the Presbyterian Church at Fayette? It was located on the east side of the road at the south edge of the village. The late Mr. Ed Cook and his parents were members, as well as the family of George Washington Crook, Benjamin and Gabriella Crook Jennings, Homer, Caroline Love Jennings and Robert Jennings. When Uncle Homer Jennings was 21, my mother Caroline was seven years old and Uncle Robert was a year old. The three were baptized at the Fayette Baptist Church by Rev. Viney. The church at Fayette was absorbed by the Presbyterian Church in Greenfield. When my family were members here in Greenfield, Warren Barbara Cook and her mother Carrie Hollihan, Floyd Jean and her mother, Lillian Koiner and Mr. Ed and Florence Cook worshipped with us. Rev. William Meeker was our minister. Clifton F. Hammon and I, Melba, Richard and Vickie Robinson Tiffany are survivors of the Benjamin and Gabriella Jennings Presbyterian family. Today was Mother’s Day. Before Shirley and Clifton left for home, he said, “For the 56th time (he is 56) happy Mother’s Day!” He and Shirley will be married 25 years this year, so they purchased a new automobile. For the grandchildren they have nicknamed it blue Velvet. They took me for a ride- I can get into it as the seats are leather and I can slide. They bought a special sturdy stool in case I needed that assistance. Shirley asked me what I wanted for lunch. I replied, “Lemon meringue pie!” They got that from Meehan’s deli and it was delicious. While they were inside Mr. and Mrs. Sam Walden parked beside us. She said Hazel is living with them at Rockbridge. Hello, Hazel. My friend Amelia Burger spent Mother’s Day with family, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Sibley in Hamburg. Lois Vinyard spend a few days with her daughter and family in Auburn vicinity.

Birthday Journee turns 3 Journee Taylor Vinyard of White Hall will turn 3-years-old on June 10. She is the daughter of Kendra Wallis of White Hall and Christopher Vinyard of Roodhouse . Journee is the granddaughter of Richard and Julie Wallis and Gene Vinyard, all of Roodhouse and Silke Vinyard of Columbia, S.C.. Her great-grandparents are Bob and Norma Vinyard , Jerry and Roma Sharrow, all of Roodhouse and Virgil and Pam Wallis of White Hall.

God is good and merciful! Recently the devil got tangled up in a hard maple tree close to my house - damaged the gutter, tree, etc. Bill the tree man took care of the damages. Randy Shade will tend tot he gutter. Clifton and Shirley and Debbi and Beth Fields gave me support. Danica Fields was to run with the Girls On The Run, but had to walk the course while 7000 other girls ran. She had to walk because she broke her left clavicle a few day before and she couldn’t run. But she didn’t’ give up. Dani and her Aunt Beth finished the race and crossed the finish line at 9:31 a.m. - it took them one hour and sixteen minutes. She resides in Jerseyville with her parents - Jim and Beth Fields and her brother Logan. Her grandmother is Debbi Fields and her Aunt Beth and they live by me. Rachael McMillan played flute in her Springfield High School band concert. She is Larry and Kathy Mears’ oldest granddaughter. Mears also enjoyed her in the musical “Legally Blonde” this spring. Sara, a sister, played in a violin recital at SHS. The mother, Beth Mears McMillan is a GHS graduate. To meet friends of yesterday, Clifton and I do not have to wait for GHS alumni nor Greenfield Triennial Homecoming. We go to Meehan’s IGA Store. He and Shirley shop inside and visit with Mike, Jackie, Sarah and Cara - I sit in the car while people come by and talk with me. When I was a little girl, to me clocks and bells were my enemies. My sister and I ate with our parents at 6 p.m. We listened to radio until 7 p.m. - then we took our baths, shined our shoes and laid out our clothes for the next day. At 5 minutes to 8 p.m. Dad wound the alarm. We kissed him and Mother and jumped into bed. Outside of our bedroom was the piano with a Westminster clock that chimed once on the half hour and 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 1, and 2 before we would get to sleep. There was a doorway - no door to close. Sometimes we giggled and Mother would thump on the wall, “You

girls have school tomorrow, go to sleep.” The chimes kept her awake. I hid the clock key to no avail. She had a sewing machine instrument that would the clock. We moved to Greenfield then the piano and clock were three rooms away. Great. But there was the town clock atop Fleur di Lis Hill that struck the same way night and day. Folks, they knew what they were doing when it was mounted in the park without striking. Church bells, school bells, recess bells, classroom bells. Thank you God for doorbells, wedding bells, and old folk emergency bells! ABIDING LOVE Before I knew about you, You pursued me. Before I knew I needed you, You were there beside me. Before I accepted you as Lord, You died for my sins. Even when I deny you, You choose to love me. Even when I choose to sin, You desire to forgive me. Even when I fail to fully surrender, You invite me into your kingdom. Isn’t it comforting to know that even before we knew God, God knew us? We were created in love and we have the assurance that the Holy Spirit pursues us until we realize our need for God in our lives. Who else could love us this much? It is good to know and feel the assurance that when we leave this earthly existence we will be able to live in the house of the Lord forever. However, many times we forget that God has promised God’s abiding presence with us here on earth. I believe that when the psalmist says, “goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life,” he want us to understand the depth of God’s love for us. Even in the darkest days of our life, God is there. It is often in these darkest time that God’s light shines even brighter. Know that you are loved and the God’s presence is for now, as well as for eternity. ‘Til next time!

White Hall librarian retires after 49 years By Carmen ensinger Greene Prairie Press After nearly a half century of serving the people of White Hall, Alice Ford consulted the card catalog for the final time as librarian at White Hall Township Library on May 9. Ford will be honored for her 49 years of service with the library with a retirement party at the library on June 1 from 2 to 4 p.m. Ford, a 1960 graduate of North Greene High School, began work as an assistant librarian in 1965 after applying for several different positions in White Hall. “I was without a job at the time and had applied for the library position and also put my application in at Search’s IGA store when it was here in White Hall,” Ford said. “I got called for the store job but I only worked there about three days because I got a call from the library and I really wanted to work at the library.” She had no idea the job would turn into a career. “Most people don’t stay with a job this long but I have lived here all my life and really had no desire to go anywhere else,” Ford said. “I wasn’t one who liked to get out and drive in the winter time to get to another job so I just stayed here.” The earlier days of the library were much different than it is today. “Back when I first started, the library was always full of kids,” Ford recalls. “Kids didn’t have all these extra activities that they have to do today and they didn’t have cars to run around in. We were open from 7 (a.m.) to 9 in the evening and every table in there would have kids in it. They were either studying or it was the place to go to meet their friends.” Of course this was long before computers and e-books. “Back then we really checked out a lot of books,” Ford said. “Circulation is not nearly as good as it used to be because there are so many other options out there.” Ford took over the head librarian position from Ina Knight in 1983 and immediately set about to give it her

own personal touch. “So many libraries I’ve seen are so stuffy because you walk in and there is just row after row of metal shelves with books,” Ford said. “I tried to make our library a more attractive place when I took over. We have a fireplace with two comfortable chairs in front of it. We have people studying genealogy come in here from all over and the one thing they said is that our library looks so nice and inviting.” Ford ushered in the computer age during her tenure.

“i’m going to miss the people more than anything. i like visiting with people and i had regulars that came in every single day to read the newspapers or just chat. i will miss that.”

Alice Ford Librarian at White Hall Township Library “Mrs. Knight didn’t think we needed computers,” Ford said. “After I became head librarian, we started out with one computer for the office. Then we thought we needed one for the public to use. Then it became two and now we have four public computers here.” If Ford had stayed just one more year longer, she would have no doubt seen the library become fully automated. “We started the process of becoming automated like Carrollton last year,” Ford said. “I contacted a lady at our library system in Edwardsville and she came up and talked to us and the board decided it was time we became automated, so we are in the process now.”

When asked why she didn’t stay just one more year to reach the halfcentury mark, Ford said it was a decision fueled by family tragedy including the death of her mother at the age of 103 last year and her brother. “I thought about it and they asked me why I didn’t stay just one more year to reach 50 years, but I just had so many things happen last year that I decided it was time,” Ford said. “I just decided I don’t want to work until the day I drop and made my decision.” Ford has seen three generations grow up through the library. “People will come in now that are grown that were little kids when I first started and they are bringing their kids now,” Ford said. “When I see them I think of their name and I always remember them as they were little. I see them now and I feel really old because they are so grown up.” The library has been forced to change with the times and these days offers a lot more than just books. “When I started, we didn’t have movies to check out or audio books – that has all come about since I have been here,” Ford said. “The work of the librarian has also changed a lot. These days we spend a lot of time doing paperwork for grants and such – something I’m not going to miss at all.” Of course that is not saying she won’t miss other aspects of being librarian for most of her adult life. “I’m going to miss the people more than anything,” Ford said. “I like visiting with people and I had regulars that came in every single day to read the newspapers or just chat. I will miss that.” Still, Ford is not going to be a stranger to the library. “I still plan on working there as a fill in if someone has to go on vacation or to a meeting or something and they need someone extra to work,” Ford said. “And I will be available if they every need any help with anything. I was there three weeks with the new librarian and I tried to teach her everything I had learned in 49 years in those three weeks, but if they need me they can call me.”

Learning about your family history is important

When it comes to Supportive Living, we’re not what you’d expect. CALL ADMINISTRATOR AMY WELTON FOR A TOUR 618-639-9700 bst2012 - Fotolia.com

(StatePoint) It’s no wonder that genealogy is one of the most popular topics on the Internet -- family history can be fascinating, and learning more about it is an excellent vehicle for generating conversation and fostering inter-generational bonds. Beyond creating a family tree, consider generating a more thorough narrative by conducting an oral history interview with your loved ones. “Through an oral history, you can capture key life moments and connect the past and future,” says Nancy Rogers, senior vice president of Corporate Responsibility at Lincoln Financial Group. The company is honoring the legacy of Abraham Lincoln and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation through its Lincoln’s Legacy initiative, which includes a call for recorded oral histories conducted by Americans nationwide. With so much technology now available in the palm of your hand, discovering and capturing your fam-

ily’s history is easier than ever. From conducting research online to recording and sharing oral histories, take advantage of available tools. Here are some guidelines to make the most of the experience: n Prepare questions, don’t just wing it. You’ll have a much more interesting conversation if you have a series of open-ended questions ready in advance. For example, “what historical event left the most lasting impression on your life?” Avoid yes or no questions. n Consider your relatives’ ages and what life might have been like for them during their childhood. Were their schools or neighborhoods racially diverse? Ask your grandparent or older relative to compare life today to that time. “You may not think about it often, but Americans have not always enjoyed the freedom and opportunities they do today. Talking to older relatives about their lives and the lives of their parents and grandpar-

ents can shed light on the struggles and challenges of the past,” says Allison Green, chief diversity officer at Lincoln Financial. n Use a prop to get the conversation started, such as an old photo or a trinket. These keepsakes can inspire both questions and answers. n Preserve your interview by recording it forever. Choose a welllit, quiet area. Use a camcorder or a smartphone -- whatever works for you. n Don’t keep your interview to yourself. There are ways you can share it with the world. For example, Lincoln Financial Group is calling for recordings to be incorporated into an anthology of voices. To upload your conversation or learn more about the initiative, visit www. LincolnsLegacyOralHistories.com. Everyone has an interesting story to tell and a legacy to leave. Don’t let the fascinating fabric of your family history fade away undiscovered.

Greene County Four boys headed to state championships scores, results HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD ROUNDUP

Three Greene County boys won sectional championships and a fourth will join them at the IHSA Class 1A boys track and field state championship meet in Charleston. North Greene High School junior Logan Ross will be busy competing to two events at the state championships, which begin with preliminary rounds Thursday and conclude with finals Saturday at O'Brien Stadium in Charleston. Ross won the Rushville Class 1A Sectional title in the high jump after successfully clearing 6 feet, 5 inches, Saturday in Rushville. He'll also compete in the 400-meter dash at the Class 1A state meet after placing second with a time of 52.48 seconds. Ross was just half a second

away from a second sectional title, but Jordan Manges of the Illinois School for the Deaf edged out the win finishing in 51.98 seconds. Ross will see a familiar face in the state championship meet's high jump field — Carrollton High School's Cody Leonard. The Hawks junior won the Carlinville Class 1A Sectional title in the event by clearing 6 feet, 7 inches, Saturday in Carlinville. Entering the state meet, Leonard's effort ranks second among all Class 1A high jumpers. Only Downs Tri-Valley's Derek Wegman went higher — 6 feet, 9 inches — during sectional competition. Ross' 6-foot, 5-inch jump is tied for fourth among the event's 32 qualifiers. Carrollton claimed a second sectional

championship when sophomore Tyler Frye won the 3,200-meter run in 10:46.25 Saturday in Carlinville to earn a spot in the state championship field. Leonard and Frye's efforts helped the Hawks claim a seventh-place finish out of out 14 teams at the Carlinville Sectional. Carrollton tallied 43 points while New Berlin and Carlinville tied for the sectional team title with 65 each. North Greene finished fourth with 46 points at the 15-team Rushville Sectional. Host Rushville-Industry ran away with the sectional championship with 104.5 points. Spartans junior Andrew Davis will round out Greene County's contingent at the state championship meet. Davis finished in second place in the triple jump by leaping 41 feet, 7 inches,

Saturday in Rushville. While the boys were competing for berths at their state championships, Greene County was represented at the Class 1A girls track and field state meet by two athletes Thursday in Charleston. North Greene junior Brittney Kraushaar was less than four inches away from qualifying for Saturday's finals after her best triple jump effort in Thursday's preliminary round cleared 34 feet, 4.25 inches. The 12th and final spot in the Class 1A state finale was earned with a 34-foot, 8-inch jump. Carrollton sophomore Claire Meyer's best effort in the long jump preliminary round went 15 feet, 1.5 inches, Thursday at O'Brien Stadium. The 12th and final spot in Saturday's finals was won with a jump of 16 feet, 6 inches.

Big hits power Lady Hawks Hardin Class 1A Regional into sectional title game Spartans win regional title with no hits

SAM eLLioTT Greene Prairie Press A collection of bases-loaded doubles has positioned the Carrollton High School softball team one win away from its first sectional championship since 2002. The Lady Hawks and Pawnee were locked in a scoreless pitchers' duel through the first four and a half innings of their Jacksonville Class 1A Sectional semifinal. Momentum shifted in Pawnee's direction when the Lady Indians took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth, but Carrollton's offense strung together nine of its 11 hits in the final two frames to win an 8-3 decision Tuesday at MacMurray College. "I knew our hits were coming, it was just [a matter of] which inning they were going to come out," Lady Hawks head coach Amy Struble said. "I wish it would have started sooner, but hey — when they hit, they hit." Kenlie Henson led off Carrollton's half of the fifth inning by reaching base on a Pawnee error and McKenzie Ruyle singled to move her to second. Emily Struble's bunt the following at-bat forced an errant Pawnee throw that allowed Henson to score and a walk drawn by Madison Mountain loaded the bases with no outs for Madison Struble. Her ground-rule double, which bounced over the left-field fence, put Carrollton ahead 3-2. "We have a lot of competitive batters and when little Emily Struble gets a hit, her big sister just has to outdo her — and that’s OK with me," coach Struble said. "I think once Emily started hitting, Maddie had to show her up once or twice, but that’s OK." Emily Struble drove home Samantha McPherson and Henson to make it a 5-2 game and Madison Struble followed two at-bats later with another double to left field that plated her sister and Mountain for a 7-2 lead. Macy Pohlman drove home courtesy runner Christina Newton to cap Carrollton's big seventh inning. It was bases-clearing doubles by Madison Struble and Pohlman that dug the Lady Hawks out of a 5-1 deficit against rival Calhoun in the Hardin Class 1A Regional title game Saturday at Calhoun High School. Madison Struble's made it a one-run game in the top of the fifth inning and Pohlman's big hit — coming with two strikes and two outs in the seventh inning — put Carrollton ahead 7-5. Mountain's 1-2-3 bottom of the seventh inning from the pitchers' circle clinched Carrollton its 18th regional championship of the past 20 seasons

Carrollton junior Madison Mountain winds up a pitch against Pawnee Tuesday at MacMurray College. The Lady Hawks won the teams' Jacksonville Class 1A Sectional semifinal matchup 8-3 as Mountain scattered six hits through seven innings with eight strikeouts and one walk. Carrollton will play for the sectional championship at 11 a.m. Saturday at MacMurray College. michaelrweaver.com

— and gave the Lady Hawks their first victory against Calhoun in three tries this season. The Lady Warriors, who won a school-record 30 games this season, claimed 10-3 and 8-2 decisions when the teams met in the regular season. Mountain scattered nine hits and two of Calhoun's five runs were charged as earned, but she kept the Lady Warriors scoreless through the game's final five innings. Her scoreless-innings streak extended to nine innings before Pawnee plated two of its three in the fifth Tuesday. Mountain finished the sectional semifinal allowing six hits and three earned runs with eight strikeouts and one walk. "She pitched an outstanding game," coach Struble said. "They had some hits on her, but we knew coming in that they were a good hitting team and our defense had to be tight. I was hoping for more run support earlier, but it came when it came... Once she had some runs underneath her, it just changed the whole game." Carrollton, now 24-8 this season, will face either Camp Point Central or Brown County in the Jacksonville Class 1A Sectional championship game at 11 a.m. Saturday at MacMurray College. "It’s great just coming this far. This is the farthest we’ve been in my high school career and I think we can take it all the way because we’re just coming together as a team and a family," Mountain said. "I think

that’ll take us a long way." The Lady Hawks have had to come from behind in all of their playoff games this postseason. North Greene took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning of the teams' regional semifinal Wednesday, May 21, but Carrollton drew even by the second before winning 13-3 in six innings. SPARTANS WIN REGIONAL The North Greene High School baseball team was kept without a hit by Calhoun pitcher Mitch Bick, but the Spartans managed to win a 1-0 decision to upset the top-seeded Warriors and claim the White Hall Class 1A Regional championship Saturday in White Hall. Senior pitcher Adam Knox threw a five-hit shutout with six strikeouts and just one walk through seven innings and came home to score the game's lone run in the top of the fourth inning after having reached base thanks to being hit by a pitch. Calhoun — which shared this season's Western Illinois Valley Conference South championship with the Spartans — nearly drew even to force extra innings with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, but North Greene right fielder Zach Reische threw out Calhoun's gametying baserunner at home plate for the game's final out. North Greene will face Lebanon in the Carlinville Class 1A Sectional semifinals at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at Blackburn College. selliott@campbellpublications.net
