Local man charged in connection with Rockbridge double homicide By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press

L

aw enforcement officials were quick to apprehend a suspect wanted in connection with a double homicide that took place late Sunday night, Sept. 9 in Rockbridge. According to a press release from the Illinois State Police, a 911 call was received at approximately 10:38

p.m. regarding a stabbing incident that took place in Rockbridge at 585 State Road involving two brothers, Ronald Plummer, age 55, and Billy Plummer, age 54. Each was stabbed multiple times with a knife and pronounced dead on scene by the Greene County Coroner’s Office. The suspect fled the scene and was tracked to Gillespie by using pings from his cell phone. He was arrested by law enforcement officials without incident and eventually taken to the Greene County Jail.

Greene County State’s Attorney Caleb Briscoe filed a total of six counts of First Degree Murder against Adam Gowin, 28, also of Rockbridge, in the deaths of Ronald and Billy Plummer. “There are three counts alleging the murder of Billy Plummer and three counts alleging the murder of Ronald Plummer,� Briscoe said. “Each count alleges a different legal theory as to how the offense was committed, but all allege the same physical actions on the part of Adam

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press After 15 years heading up the North Greene Summer Lunch Program, Tammy Winters is retiring as coordinator of the program. Winters started the program, which provides a free lunch during the week to any student in the North Greene School District, in 2003 when she retired from teaching in the district. “I started the program because I was concerned about the number of students in our district who received free or reduced price lunches,� Winters said. “During the summer, when school is not in session, are those children even getting a meal?� Thus was born the Summer Lunch Program. Churches and businesses donated to the program to fund the food that was given out to the children, and each week a different church was in charge of putting together the sack lunches and delivering them to the various drop points throughout the district. This year, between 130 to 140 lunches were delivered throughout the week for nine weeks to the communities of White Hall, Roodhouse and Patterson. Soon, other communities were contacting Winters to get infor-

History made IDNR backs down on Honor Flight from proposed rule change

By CARMEN ENSINGER Greene Prairie Press Since its first flight in 2009, the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight has taken thousands of veterans, free of charge, to Washington D.C. to view the monuments erected in their honor along with other places like Arlington Cemetery and the Space Museum, but on the Aug. 21 flight, history was made. On this day, 28 veterans from Greene County, the single largest number of veterans from any one area, boarded a plane in Springfield for the flight to Washington D.C. The event was coordinated by Vietnam Veteran and White Hall resident Neil Fansler after learning that seven friends from Carrollton High School made the flight together. “I heard about those guys going, and it got me to thinking why we couldn’t do something similar up here,� Fansler said. “So, in 2016 I decided to get the information out there to the community to see if any of the veterans in this area would be interested in going on the Honor Flight together.� Fansler had posters made up and posted at various locations such as restaurants and gas stations and then in June of 2016, he held at meeting at city hall which was well attended by veterans interested in going. “When I first started this, I was basically looking for veterans from the White Hall, Roodhouse, Hillview and Patterson area,� Fansler said. “Then we had some people from Carrollton express an interest, as well as a couple from Greenfield.� Fansler contacted the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight and sent in everyone’s application later in June of 2016. “So, from the time this idea was born until the day we all stepped on that flight together, it was more than (See, HONOR FLIGHT, A2)

By ANNETTE MARSHALL Greene Prairie Press The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) withdrew its proposed rule change to duck blind building materials at a meeting Aug. 30 of the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) — and area waterfowl hunters are breathing a sign of relief.

“It’s nice to win one for a change.�

Glenn Sanders President, Mississippi Valley Hunters and Fishermen’s Association The proposed rule centered around materials used in duck blind construction. An Aug. 1 press release from IDNR stated, “Some blind materials end up in water bodies or waterways each year when waterfowl blinds degrade or are destroyed by time, ice, floods, or other events. Materials such as metal and plastic fencing, metal panels, roofing materials and metal poles can litter waterways and create hazards for boaters, anglers and other site users that can cause damage or injury.� Joe Webster, president of the Batchtown Sportsmen’s Club, said he was pleased with the outcome. “All the letters, e-mails and phone calls from everyone made this happen.

GREENE PRAIRIE PRESS

Where were you? It is Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, exactly 17 years since the face of America and our feelings of security changed forever. The Facebook question being posted since last night was “Do you remember where you were or what you were doing during the attack?” Like almost everyone else who was old enough to watch television, I remember it very clearly. We were at home living in the big house with our room on the second floor. Pretty much lived in the room – slept there, ate there, did Ebay there, watched television there – you get the idea. Well, the television was on and whatever program we were watching was interrupted with news of the attack. We grabbed Schuyler and held him close to us as we watched the second tower get hit. At that point, we felt like we needed to be near our dear friends, Al and Darlene Johnson. They lived in Roodhouse and they had become Schuyler’s puppy sitters. They became like family to us and we spent a lot of time at their house. You see, they had a little yorkie named Peggy and Sky and she were best buds. They were about the same size and Schuyler was only 2 years old at the time so he was still in that running and playing stage. They would chase each other around the dining room table until it made us dizzy to watch. I never will forget one time after a particularly hearty run, Sky decided to dart through the living room door but he ended up running into the side of

the doorway. Poor little guy knocked himself silly and ended up with a black eye. Anyway, we got in the truck and went up to their house where we spent the rest of the day watching the towers fall and seeing, repeatedly, the second plane hitting the tower. Life forever changed at that moment, not only for us, but I think for most Americans. It was as if it was something out of a disaster film. Everyone loves a good disaster film with buildings being blown up, terrorists wreaking havoc and beyond every wall. But deep down inside we know that is just a movie – it is fiction. This was real and it was so scary to think that we, indeed, are vulnerable. If it happened in New York and Washington, who would say it couldn’t happen in Carrollton or Winchester? I think every bad thing that ever happened in a movie that we thought could never happen in real life suddenly became possible. I think after 9/11, we spent a lot more time up with Al and Darlene. We had an antique booth in Springfield, so we would always drop Sky off to play with Peggy when we headed up that way. Many times he went with us, but not always. Like I said, we became very close with them. Al had to go on dialysis and after about a year he decided that it was too much for him so we got the call that he had decided to stop. All of his family was called and that included us. I can’t remember exactly, but I think they gave him about 48 hours to live without the dialysis – might have been

more. I just know that we were up there for days and he lived a lot longer than expected. Sadly, he passed in Much Ado the night and we About were not able to be Nothing there, but it was a comfort to know we BY CARMEN spent time with him ENSINGER before the end. I think that was the last time I ever felt like I was part of a family. Sadly, Darlene moved to be closer to her daughter and we lost touch. She died a couple of years ago. Ironically, it was Schuyler who brought us all together. We had an antique booth in Carrollton and they came in there one day, and, like us, they took Peggy everywhere with them. If I close my eyes, I can see them sitting on that little bench in the front of the store holding Peggy. Schuyler was immediately smitten and our friendship was born. The antique store is where Copper Stills and Mash is now and when I was in there recently, though it is totally different now, I could still see where that bench had been and picture Al, Darlene and Peggy sitting there. We were friends before 9/11 but I think that tragedy brought all of us even closer. So, as the Alan Jackson song goes “where were you when the world stopped turning,” I can always say, I was with family. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Carmen Ensinger is a pet-lover and a reporter for Campbell Publications.

Honor Flight (Continued from A1) two years,” Fansler said. “We ended up with 15 from White Hall, seven from Roodhouse, three from Hillview, two from Greenfield and one from Winchester on that flight.” Fansler said that while the memorials were fantastic, the best and most memorable part of the trip was the groups of people who met them both at Ronald Reagan Airport in Washington D.C. and then those who met them on their return to Springfield Airport. “We weren’t expecting anyone to meet us when we landed in Washington, but we walked in there, and there were all these people there to receive us and shake our hands,” he said. “It was a little bit emotional for all of us because we weren’t expecting that at all.” If they were emotional at that crowd, nothing could prepare them for the crowd awaiting them back in Springfield at 1 a.m. “I could not believe the amount of people who showed up to greet us,” Fansler said. “That place was packed, and we knew most of them. Even Senator Sam McCann was there to greet us. This was really emotional for all of us.” Fansler served in Air Force from 1965 through 1969 flying on a C130 Aircraft where he was in out of Vietnam on 11 separate missions. “Being in Vietnam, the Vietnam War Memorial was very special to most of us,” Fansler said. “But the Korean War Memorial display was just amazing. Regardless of where you are standing, one of those life-size soldier statutes is looking at you. It’s really kind of eerie, but very impressive, none the less.” Gary Coates, of Hillview, was also on the Honor Flight. Coates served in the 11th Army Calvary Regiment from August 1968 to August 1969. Coates said there were so many fascinating things to see that he would have a hard time picking out one as being the most memorable to him. “One thing that will stick out in my mind was the Air Force Memorial,” he said. “If the point on that memorial had been in the air at the time of the 911 attack, the plane that crashed into the Pentagon would have hit it. Standing there and looking at the Pentagon and knowing you are standing right under where that plant would have been going over – that was a memorable experience.” Coates was drafted as a Conscientious Objector, which meant he refused to carry a gun, and like most

Conscientious Objectors, Coates was assigned to be a medic. He received a Bronze Star after being wounded by shrapnel from a hand grenade. “All I can say is that it felt like a slap on the leg and if I hadn’t seen the blood, I wouldn’t have realized I had been hit,” Coates said. “That grenade killed three of our guys and wounded two others besides myself.” Once he had bandaged his own hand, Coates went back in, where he found three soldiers laying on the ground. “The thing is, I had been right there at that same spot with those guys just seconds before that grenade it,” Coates said. “The Lord spoke to me and told me to go back up, plus I was carrying a radio at the time so I was able to call it in.” When he heard there were others trapped, he went back in. “I had heard that there were guys in there that were pinned down by gunfire,” Coates said. “I was moving around in there trying to get to them and I still don’t understand what kept me from being killed – it could only have been God. I was only 20 years old at the time.” Coates was pleasantly surprised when while filing health records one day he came across a name he knew. “I saw the name ‘Larry Forrester’ on the records, and I got to wondering if this was the old boy I graduated with,” he said. “So I opened up his records and for place of birth it said White Hall, so I knew it was him.” They had a photo taken together in Vietnam and since Forrester was also on the Honor Flight with Coates, they decided to recreate that same picture 49 49-and-a-half years later. Instead of Vietnam in the background, however, they used the Vietnam Wall as the background, choosing the panel that contained the names of the three men who were killed in the grenade attack that wounded Coates. Mike McGee, of Roodhouse, was in the Navy from 1967 to 1971 during Vietnam. He, too, was amazed by the people who had gathered to welcome them home. “I thought there would be a few people there, but I never expected there to be as many as there were,” he said. “I don’t think you could have fit another person in that airport and so many of them were from White Hall and Roodhouse.” McGee said the most memorable thing about his trip was getting to see the Washington Monument.

“No matter where you go in Washington, you can see the Washington Monument,” he said. “It is the only monument because the rest are memorials, but no matter what memorial you went to, you could look up and see the Washington Monument.” He thought the Iwo Jima statue was pretty impressive as well. “They drove the bus around it and they built it to where; as you are going around it, it looks as if they are raising the flag,” he said. “The commentator on the bus pointed that out to us that it actually looks as if they are raising the flag.” Another stop on the tour is the Air and Space Museum, which contains the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, as well as the space shuttle discovery. “The space shuttle was much bigger than I imagined – it is huge,” McGee recalls. “They also have one of the stealth fighters and a Concord jet in there – there were so many it is hard to imagine them all in one place – so much history in there.” McGee said that all of them being together in one place was very special to him. “These are all people who were in the same war you were and though we live in the same area, we don’t always get together and talk about our experiences,” he said. “That day, we got to sit and visit with each other and hear their experiences and share your own experiences. It was an experience I will never forget.” Fansler agreed. “This is a once in a lifetime experience for any veteran and I encourage any veteran who hasn’t already gone, to sign up to go,” he said. “The experience itself was special but having that experience with such a large group of people from your own area made it even more special.” Veterans going on the Honor Flight on Aug. 21 were: Fred Anthony, Donnie Talkington, Steve Roberts, Gary Coates, John Anthony, Danny Talkington, K.E. Edwards, Jim Evans, Authur Dossett, Richard Caskey, Neil Fansler, Noel Smith, Carl Moran, Jerel Steele and Nick Carmean, all of White Hall; Gale Ford, Bob Hart, Forrest Jones, Larry Forrester, James Waters, Mike McGee and Neal Smock, all of Roodhouse; Dwayne Scott, Larry Patton and Darrell Dawdy, all of Hillview; Terry Meyer and Kenny Plogger, of Greenfield and Joseph Gross of Winchester.

areas are kept as neat and clean as we possibly can,” Sanders said. “All of the hunting groups involved - Migratory [Waterfowl Hunters, Inc.], Mississippi Valley Hunters and Fishermen’s Association, IFOR - we all actually agreed on some really significant enforcement provisions. Not only will the blind builders get a ticket, but they could have to sit out the next drawing for that particular site,” he continued.

Sanders said he is glad that IDNR was willing to accept a compromise that penalized hunters for not taking care of their blinds, but still allowed hunters to use building materials that kept them safe in the blinds. “It’s nice to win one for a change,” said Sanders. An email seeking comment from IDNR legal counsel Javonna Ackerman was not returned at press time.

IDNR (Continued from A1) Waterfowl Hunters, Inc., of Alton. Sanders said that the hunting groups had proposed a compromise with IDNR that included stricter penalties than what IDNR had proposed, so that materials used by hunters in blind building wouldn’t be banned. “…we actually went farther than what the DNR did towards the effort of making sure that all of the hunting

New law allows hunters to wear blaze pink

By ANNETTE MARSHALL Greene Prairie Press Illinois hunters will be allowed to be a bit more colorful while hunting next year, with Gov. Rauner signing House Bill 4231 on Aug. 18, permitting hunters to wear blaze pink in addition to blaze orange. The new law will take effect Jan. 1, 2019. “We want to make sure that Illinoisans are able to hunt and enjoy the outdoors safely,” Rauner said in a press release issued by his office. “The new legislation provides more variety in hunting gear while preventing tragic hunting accidents in Illinois.” The release went on to say House Bill 4231 permits hunters to wear blaze pink clothing in addition to blaze orange. Both colors of

clothing are equally visible to the human eye, however, deer are believed to be color blind to red and can see very little orange or pink. “Blaze pink laws have already passed in several other states, so this change in the law sends the message that our hunting laws put safety first,” Rep. Dave Severin, R-Benton, lead House sponsor of the bill, said in the same press release issued by the Governor’s office. “This action gives the consumer a choice, and though I’m no fashion expert, I believe blaze pink will look good on sportsmen and women in Southern Illinois.” Dustin Conrad, assistant manager at Farm and Home Supply’s Pittsfield location, said they did not have any blaze pink hunting apparel currently, but were working on getting it.

“We won’t have any blaze pink, probably not this year, not to my knowledge,” he said. Conrad said he has contacted his purchasing agent about blaze pink apparel. “We are trying to get some blaze pink…I just don’t know if we’ll have it in time for this fall,” he said. However, not all hunters will be rushing out to purchase the new blaze pink when it hits the shelves. Sarah Monroe, a Greene County resident and hunter, said she’ll be sticking with her trusty blaze orange. “I’ve shotgun hunted for 15 years, and literally a lot of my gear is the same gear I’ve used for years. I don’t plan on switching to pink,” she said. “I’ll stick with my 20-yearold blaze orange handed down from my dad, though.”

Rauner also signed HB 5317 the same day. The bill requires people who illegally capture or kill white-tailed antlered deer to pay restitution to Illinois Department of Natural Resources. “White-tailed deer are the state mammal of Illinois and a crucial part of our ecology. We must manage the deer population responsibly so future generations of Illinoisans can enjoy Illinois’ wildlife,” Rauner said. “Poaching is a serious crime and should be punished accordingly. Illegal hunting hurts legitimate sportsmen, deprives the state and local businesses of revenue generated from hunting, and harms Illinois’ wildlife population.” House Bill 5317 was effective immediately.

A show with a purpose By ZACHARY DAUM Greene Prairie Press Carrollton High School special education students will be getting a trip to see a live performance of Aladdin at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, thanks to special education school teacher Shane Feltes and the website GoFundMe.com. Feltes grew up in small towns so he knows how they are. He knows that many people from small towns are scared of the dangers of the city and often choose not to visit. But he knows that cities also hold many interesting and creative outlets that aren’t seen in small towns. Feltes has taken students to plays and musicals at the Fox Theater for 14 years. “My goal is to expose them to the fine arts and let them see that there’s a whole big world out there,” Feltes said. “There’s a lot of things to do in our local area, don’t get me wrong, but a lot of people around here see the city as a dangerous place because we don’t go to it a lot. I want to show them things within the cities that are definitely a positive.” He said that a few years ago a couple wouldn’t let their child go to the musical in St. Louis, and that although he pleaded, they would not change their mind. They were worried that the city was far too dangerous. Feltes worries that down the road that child will grow up feeling the same way. The same year however, a girl who was absolutely terrified went to the show. Feltes talked of how she was incredibly nervous about going. To combat this, Feltes took the guidance counselor along as well.

Feltes said she had a fantastic time. Another time, Feltes spoke of a child with a very high absentee rate. He went on the trip, tried different foods and afterwards, the student’s attendance rate picked up. He also knows that it can be difficult for lower income families to visit the cities to see these shows, and that to them, this event is a treat for many of the students. “About 14 years ago I found out a majority of my students were from poverty homes and I started to realize they didn’t travel out of the county very often,” Feltes said. “It felt like I took things for granted that they didn’t really know existed, so I wanted to expose them to something that I didn’t feel they would be exposed to otherwise.” Christmas is Feltes’ favorite time of the year, and he believes it is also the perfect time to host the trip. He believes that it is a great way for the students to wind down for the school year and make a lifelong memory. “I’m excited that we have someone with this experience and has done it in other districts,” Carrollton High School Principal Leslee Frazier said. “I’m so excited that our kids are going to get this opportunity, because without a teacher who is passionate about these things and gets the community behind it, this would never happen.” Feltes relies solely on funding through the site GoFundMe.com. Many of his funders have done so since before he taught at Carrollton High School and have continued to donate as he’s moved locations. You can donate to his fund at the Carrollton High School or on his GoFundMe page online.

Blessing of the Helmets

Eldred, Rod and Connie Sturgeon, Gerald Day and our service times are Judy Cannon, Kevin Day, Bonnie a.m. Sunday school, followed Hardwick, Harold Jefferson, Janet of solutions for teacher 9:30 by 10:30 a.m. morning worship with Slater, Betty Ballard, Sheila Daniels, nursery service available. Everyone Amy Newton, Randy Cisna, Keith workforce crisis is welcome to either or both services. Wells, Karla Cannon, Stacie Baze, On Sunday, Sept. 9 we had 28 Lea Ann Manley, Kelsie Manley,

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) today published a comprehensive suite of solutions for the statewide teacher workforce crisis, backed by state and national research and data. The “Teach Illinois: Strong Teachers, Strong Classrooms� report addresses the state’s record number of unfilled positions. The data show the problem strikes underfunded districts: 90 percent of last year’s teacher vacancies were in districts funded below adequacy. Fully investing in the Evidence-Based Funding formula will support school districts in the greatest need to implement proven models for improving teacher recruitment and retention. State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D., will facilitate a discussion on the report with State Board members at the ISBE board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 11. The board meeting begins at noon at 100 N. First St. in Springfield. “Every child in Illinois deserves well prepared and effective teachers in their classrooms,� Smith said. “The State Board charged agency staff one year ago with thoroughly investigating the teacher shortage in Illinois. We have a statewide crisis, and now we have a suite of research-backed and targeted solutions. Getting serious about solving the teacher shortage crisis means increasing investments in Illinois’ underfunded school districts, so they can implement proven teacher leadership, mentorship and pipeline models.� The Teach Illinois report connects and prioritizes recommendations based on national and state research studies and engagement with focus groups involving more than 400 participants across the state. The Teach Illinois recommendations fall into six strategies: 1. Provide adequate funding for all school districts. Ninety percent of the 2017 teaching vacancies were in districts funded below adequacy. The districts in the greatest need currently have the fewest resources to implement effective teacher leadership, mentorship, and pipeline programs. The report recommends fully funding the Evidence-Based Funding formula. 2. Create leadership and mentorship structures for current teachers. Nationally, new teachers who do not receive mentoring and other supports leave at more than twice the rate of those who do. The biggest supply of teachers for Illinois’ classrooms is returning educators, whose return rate typically hovers at about 90 percent. However, 54 percent of new teachers in Illinois leave their initial school of employment within the first two years. By the fifth year of teaching, 67 percent leave their initial school of employment, and 25-30 percent leave the teaching profession altogether. Chicago Public Schools’ Opportunity Culture schools and Tennessee’s Teacher Leader Network provide effective models for teacher leadership that not only increase retention but also expand the reach of master teachers and improve student achievement. 3. Support innovation in teacher preparation. The number of candidates enrolling in and completing teacher preparation programs in Illinois decreased by 53 percent between 2010 and 2016. Teach Illinois focus group participants resoundingly agreed that a high-quality field experience is the single best way for teacher candidates to develop effective content, classroom management, and data-driven decision-making practices. The report recommends supporting multiple avenues of entry into the teaching profession and encourages partnerships between school districts and preparation programs. 4. Develop teacher career pipelines aligned to meet

demand. Bilingual and special education account for almost half of all unfilled positions. Additionally, the percentage of students of color in Illinois increased from 46 percent to 52 percent over the last ten years, while the percentage of teachers of color remained static at around 15 percent. The report recommends developing pipelines to provide a seamless pathway from introductory dual-credit courses in high school, into postsecondary preparation, through to licensure – especially in shortage areas such as bilingual and special education. District 214’s Educator Prep Career Pathways, Kansas City Public Schools’ Educators Rising program, and the Portland Dual Language Teacher Fellows Program provide models for teacher pathways. 5. Eliminate the Test of Academic Proficiency and explore alternative approaches to assessing basic skills. Currently, most teacher candidates opt to demonstrate the basic skills necessary for licensure through ACT or SAT. Portfolio or competency-based assessments could provide more effective options, while maintaining rigorous standards and high expectations. 6. Partner with stakeholders on a statewide communications and community outreach campaign. Illinois can learn from the public awareness campaigns undertaken by other states and reach target audiences through grassroots and communications efforts. The report is available online at www.isbe.net/ teachillinois and is open for public comment until Oct. 2. Commenters can submit feedback to TeachIllinois@ isbe.net. The Joyce Foundation generously invested in the Teach Illinois project and served as a thought partner. The foundation also supported Education First Consulting and Revolution Impact, which provided technical and content expertise.

Walkerville Baptist Church news From the desk of Pastor David Slagle. We begin the month of September with “Mission Illinois Offering� and week of prayer through Sept. 9-16. From the very southern tip of Illinois to the furthest northern city there are at least eight million people who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal savior. There are 200 places and people groups in our state where there is no evangelistic gospel-teaching church and little gospel witness. Through the mission offerings 1000 partner churches are strengthened by the work of IBSA missionaries and ministry staff. Also 180,000 Illinois Baptists who grow in discipleship, evangelism and ministry

leadership because of the work supported by this annual offering for state missions. in the book of Matthew chapter 28:18-20 Jesus gave the disciples the “great commission� to go, preach, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. I most likely would not be sitting in my study with the scriptures open and typing this article for the Greene County news if someone had not directed me to attended Grace Baptist Church in Winchester. Nor would I be the pastor of Walkerville Baptist Church. Do you know Jesus Christ as your lord and savior? You can - he is waiting for you

to invite Him into your life. If any have questions about how to accept Jesus, just call my number, which I will put at the end of this article. We enjoyed a great group in worship service this morning and was blessed with Cecil and Mary Prewitt visiting from Iowa. Cecil attended school in Walkerville for a time. Prayer requests are as follows: Nancy, Keith, Betty, Cecil, Eva, Ava, Dan, Ray, Patty, Erma Lou, Dorothy, Robert, Margie, Vera, and four unspoken. I invite you to join us for Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday evening Bible study at 6:30 p.m. I have a new phone number 217-473-1892.

Free and Reduced-Price Meals eligibility guidelines set for 2018-19 school year The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has announced the eligibility guidelines for students to receive free and reduced-price lunch, breakfast, and after-school snacks through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. The policy took effect at the start of the 2019 fiscal year on July 1. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) sets the policy for each fiscal year to reflect any changes in the federal poverty guidelines. The National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are funded by USDA and administered by ISBE. Free and reduced-price meals ensure access to nutritious meals and snacks for families unable to pay the full price. “Good nutrition is essential to children’s readiness to learn,� State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D., said. “The only meals many of our students get are at school. Illinois’ agricultural assets give us an amazing opportunity to feed students high-quality, healthy foods. ISBE is very proud to administer school nutrition programs in Illinois." The chart above lists the household size and income criteria that determine students’ eligibility to receive free and reduced-price lunch, breakfast, and after-school snacks through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. USDA’s Fiscal Year 2019 Income Eligibility Guidelines are also on the ISBE’s website at https:// www.isbe.net/Documents/IEG-19.pdf.

Complete one application per household for all children who attend the same school

district. All meals served must meet USDA meal requirements. However, a school can make substitutions prescribed by a doctor if a child has been determined by the doctor to have a disability that would prevent the child from eating the regular school meal. There will be no extra charge if a substitute meal is needed. Please contact the school for more information if you believe your child needs substitutions because of a disability. Letters, along with application forms, are being sent to parents or guardians.

A Life of Service A

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” —1 Peter 4:10 NIV

quote that is variously attributed to Saint Augustine, Mother Teresa, and Pope Francis, runs as follows: “Whoever does not live to serve does not deserve to live.” The quotation in Spanish is a bit less harsh: “Quien no vive para servir, no sirve para vivir,” which is to say that whoever does not live to serve is not fulfilling the purpose of life. When we live a life of service to others we fulfill the highest purpose in life. Perhaps Jesus said it best when he said that “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.” (Matthew 20:26 NIV) There are many ways that we can serve others, from just being kind and accommodating in our everyday interactions to choosing a career that relieves suffering or otherwise serves valid human interests. Mother Teresa was always humble in the way that she described her work among the poor, saying that “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” The warm smile and friendly tone of voice when helping someone is often what constitutes serving someone well, as opposed to merely “processing” them. And remember, the life of service is its own reward. If you expect to be thanked or otherwise rewarded for your kind service you will often be disappointed. – Christopher Simon

Watermeal and duckweed on farm ponds

By DUANE FRIEND U of I Extension This time of year, duckweed and watermeal can be found on farm ponds. These free-floating plants can completely cover a pond. If this occurs for several summers, fishing quality may eventually be reduced. Duckweed plants are about 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide. Each plant will have a single hairlike root. Watermeal is smaller than duckweed and looks like tiny green seeds. These plants are found in nutrient-rich ponds and can be spread from one pond to another by humans and by ducks or geese. During the fall, the weeds lose their buoyancy and settle to the bottom of the pond. Then the following spring, when photosynthesis begins, they regain buoyancy and float back to the surface. Non-chemical control of these two plants has limited effectiveness. Reducing the nutrients flowing into the pond helps but does not usually eliminate the plants. Mechanical skimmers will physically remove the plants, but the plants must be moved far enough away to prevent them from washing back into the pond. Chemical control can be effective if the right products are used. Diquat, a contact herbicide, can be effective on duckweed but is generally

not effective on watermeal. Diquat should be used as soon as the plants are seen. Several treatments may be needed during the growing season. Fluridone is also effective on duckweed. Split treatments, about two weeks apart, are usually required. Fluridone is not a contact herbicide; if there is a heavy rain within 30 days, effectiveness may be diminished. It may also take some time to see results. Fluridone is generally effective on watermeal, but it is critical that the chemical be applied according to label directions. Both products can be purchased through local farm chemical suppliers. If used properly, these products will not harm fish or fowl. But, they cannot be used within a quarter mile of a potable water intake. Always read and follow all label directions on chemical products. Keep in mind that when large amounts of aquatic plants are killed, especially when pond temperatures are high, there is a risk of oxygen depletion. As the plant material decomposes, oxygen is taken out of the water. In some cases, oxygen levels become too low for fish, which creates a fish kill. Pond owners need to realize this risk if they apply aquatic herbicides in mid to late summer, and it is for this reason we typically do not recommend treating ponds this time of year.

The Outlaw Opry band performed on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 8, at Greenfield’s BBQ by the Lake. The band is made up of artists living in or with ties to Greene County, from left: John Goetten, Jackie Lakin and Steven Mellas. Other performers were scheduled to play later in the evening.

ith heavy rains threatening the Greene County area this past weekend, many Greene County Days events were cancelled. Greenfield decided to stick it out and hope for the best with the impending weather. It was a good call as the rains cleared in late morning on Saturday at the fifth Annual BBQ by the Lake. A total of thirty teams entered the contest with two who pulled out early when they had some smoker malfunctions. The twenty-eight teams left smoked up some finger licking good barbeque for all of those who came to taste test. After paying a fee to enter, tasters could visit each vendor and taste to their delight. There were also several side dishes entered in a separate contest that did not have to be smoked. The Trifecta of Greene

County kept many barbeque specialists busy with perfecting their ribs that were entered in the second leg of the Trifecta at the Greene County Fair in June and at the first leg of the event in Roodhouse at the Two Dog Saloon in the spring. Greenfield’s BBQ by the Lake is the third and final leg of the Trifecta. The scores from the three events will be tallied for a Trifecta winner in the ribs category. Greenfield’s Special Events Committee is especially proud of the more than 6400 square feet pavilion that was an added help in pulling off the BBQ by the Lake event, even in the damp weather. Plastic sheeting was added to the open sides for the BBQ to keep out rain and wind for the attendees. “In the past BBQ by the Lake events, rainy weather and blistering sun caused some havoc with those cooking and those tasting. This year included the most entries to date and the new pavilion may have been a factor in the outcome,” Greenfield’s mayor Nick

Bishop, noted. Mayor Bishop commended the Special Events Committee for doing a great job in working to get the pavilion and getting volunteers to come work the events. A Fourth of July Blast christened the building and a community wide Back 2 School Bash hosted by Greenfield Churches followed in August. “A Halloween Trick or Treat Night will be held on October 27. There will be a costume contest and fun held in the pavilion followed by Trick or Treating at the camp sites. Campers can enter a decorating contest of their campsite. And we are having a Bring Your Own Dish Potluck at noon that day for the campers and anyone who wants to come and bring a covered dish,” Mayor Bishop also said. The smiles on barbeque sauce covered faces at the fifth Annual BBQ by the Lake told the story of the smoking success of good weather and good eats at Rives Lake in Greenfield.

Many barbecue tasters attending the BBQ by the Lake enjoyed the new pavilion at Rives Lake in Greenfield. A beverage bar sets in the north end and food to sample in the south, while bands were on stage in the east side and tables filled with attendees enjoyed the afternoon and evening.
