Jerseyville to use TIF funds for old Moose Lodge By JARAD JARMON Jersey County Journal Jerseyville City Council OK’d the use of tax increment financing (TIF) district funds to purchase a vacant lot located at the 120 East Pearl where the Jerseyville Moose Lodge building resides. City council alderman voted on the purchase Tuesday, Jan. 14 at their regular meeting. The city will be purchasing the lot for $189,000 following the demolition of the building. They will be buying it as a lot — gravel-ready, Jerseyville Mayor Bill Russell said. The plan is to use the lot as more off-

By JARAD JARMON Jersey County Journal The state pageant for the title of Miss Illinois County Fair Queen is days away, but for Sara Lamer, it started the second she got off stage after being crowned as Miss Jersey County at the 150th Jersey County Fair. “I have been preparing for the state pageant really ever since I won the title of Miss Jersey County Fair Queen, brainstorming speech ideas and getting my wardrobe together, as well as adding an agriculture class in my schedule during the fall semester,” Lamer said. Lamer will be representing the county in the state pageant Jan. 18 and 19 at Crowne Plaza in Springfield — a notion Lamer was excited about. “I am honored and thrilled to be representing Jersey County,” she said. Lamer has been preparing for months — the most stressful piece of which consisted of fine-tuning her speech. “Preparing my speech has probably been the most stressful part simply because it’s so hard to fit everything I want to say into one minute,” Lamer said. “But, with the help of some amazing people, I was able to write my speech and get it down to 57 seconds while still presenting a meaningful and impactful message.” Her speech will include some of the same ideas she expressed in the Jersey competition this year, but is different from that of the one she gave in the summer. “I tried to broaden it for a bigger audience with a plan of action to all of Illinois instead of simply keeping it local,” she said. Miss Jersey County’s speech will center on the importance of community, individualism and diversity. It is actually those tenets that Lamer hopes are best conveyed about her and her perspective when she gets on the stage this weekend. “I really hope to convey to the judges and audience at the state pageant that it is

Brussels, Kampsville ferries to be closed The Brussels and Kampsville ferries will be closing in the coming week for repairs. The Brussels Ferry is located one mile west of Grafton and crosses the Illinois River linking Illinois Route 100 to Calhoun County, near Brussels. The Kampsville Ferry carries Illinois Route 108 across the Illinois River to connect with Illinois Route 100 (Great River Road south), near Kampsville. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that the Brussels Ferry will be closed on Thursday, Jan. 16, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., weather permitting. The department also announced that the Kampsville Ferry will be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 22, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., weather permitting. Work is necessary to do ferry ramp repairs, and they will only be closed during these hours for one day. No traffic will be allowed to cross the river during this timeframe, therefore, motorists should seek alternate routes. The contractor on this project is St. Louis Bridge Construction Co. of Arnold, Mo.

important to actively work for inclusion in our communities, because when we all work together to create a strong, diverse community, we will see a transformation empowering our neighbors, and ourselves,” she said. “It will increase innovation, adaptability, and the quality of life for all. However, it’s okay to be different and unique in your community, because communities need every person’s unique talent’s in order to grow.” Lamer has had a unique perspective of community, individualism and diversity all of her life being a Salvadoran American herself. “I hope the judges and the audience sees and takes away the diversity I bring to the county fair system,” she said. “It’s not about where you are from, it’s about the community you grew up around and how they have shaped you as a person, and that’s exactly what Jersey County has done for me.

Year in Review-Part 1

From floods to new businesses, Jersey had big 2019 Here is a look at the year’s biggest stories: JANUARY Roberts couple sentenced for starving sixyear-old Liam Michael and Georgena Roberts were sentenced to prison Wednesday morning, more than a year after 6-year-old Liam Roberts was pronounced dead at Jersey Community Hospital due to extreme malnourishment. Both Michael and Georgena Roberts pled guilty to the murder with the possibility of 20 to 60 years in prison. Georgena was sentenced to 20 years in the Department of Corrections and Michael to 25 years in the Department of Corrections by Judge Eric Pistorious. Two counts of endangering the life and health of a child were dropped by the prosecutors when the couple pled guilty. Grafton Council rejected proposed Marina Agreement An ongoing issue for months prior, agreement had still not been met at the time regarding the Grafton Marina by the Grafton City Council. After a 2-2 tie vote on a motion made by Donna Smith to not accept the agreement, Mayor Rick Eberlin cast the deciding vote to reject the proposed agreement. According to concerns addressed before the vote during public comment, there were people that also did not want the agreement to be passed, noting that it was not built according to plan. Some stated that the original plan did not call for outside storage or a restaurant, not to mention the derelict vehicles, pieces of broken dock and inoperable boats that litter the marina. Spire STL Pipeline was ready to roll in area Greene, Scott and Jersey county residents would soon see construction begin on a new 65 mile natural gas pipeline that will run through all of Greene and Jersey counties and a small portion of Scott County as well

“We have had some conversations with IDOT maybe helping us with some of the parking with what they have been doing with handicap and losing some of the downtown,” Russell said. “We don’t know yet what that may be.” IDOT has been working on making the busy State Street corridor in Jerseyville Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-accessible. With this project, there has been a loss of parking spaces because of the restructuring of the street for ADA-accessibility. The project is one of several across the state geared toward updating side-

as portion of St. Charles and St. Louis counties in Missouri. The pipeline is an open access natural gas pipeline whose construction is being overseen by the Michels Corporation, an international utility and infrastructure contractor based in Brownsville, Wisc. with more than 5,000 employees and 16 divisions. Michels is the largest construction company in Wisconsin and among the largest in the United States. Panthers claimed tournament title The Jersey Lady Panthers captured their second tournament title of the season by defeating Routt 54-50 in overtime on Saturday to take home the Lady Hawk Classic Tournament title. FEBRUARY Some landowners faced off against gas pipeline As Spire Inc. got ready to start work on the new underground natural gas pipeline traveled through the entire length of Greene and Jersey counties and a portion of Scott County, local landowners were frustrated that Spire is coming in and taking a portion of their land without mutually acceptable compensation. The 65-mile pipeline, which joins up with the Rockies Express Pipeline in Scott County, was being built to transport natural gas to the St. Louis area. Spire is required to get an easement to go through a landowner’s property to build the pipeline.

Cory Poole cuts up a piece of meat for some of the first customers at the newly opened Jersey Hometown.

BBQ restaurant opens up in Jerseyville By JARAD JARMON Jersey County Journal A space last known for housing hammers, nails and all other manner of tools is now home to barbecue, smoked meats and some hometown cooking with the introduction of Jersey Hometown — the latest addition to the slate of eateries in the city. With a penchant for new projects and rehabbing, owners Debbie and Terry Wedding opened up the new barbecue restaurant shortly following the start of the new year. The two took over the property a year ago, and since started rehabbing the building transforming what once was the Norton’s Hardware Store to what stands today, a rustic barn house-style space filled with the aromas of smoked brisket and other meats. “We have always liked to rehab and restore, so we just really loved the old Norton hardware building,” Debbie said. “We looked at it for years, because it was going out of business for years… We just kept looking at it thinking how cool of a building it was.” Debbie said they saw so much potential with the building and what could be done with it. And after buying the property, they went to work. The place needed major work done prompting the

need for a full year, Debbie said. However, the work they were doing — it was not to start a barbecue restaurant. “It kind of started out where we were going to just do a gift shop in that area and sell some of his stuff,” Debbie said. “But, we knew we needed to have food to go along with it.” The plan was to lease out the kitchen space and run a gift shop on the other side of the space, a business the two were more familiar with. But with a lack of interest in leasing the kitchen, the two decided to introduce something different to Jerseyville themselves with Jersey Hometown and lease out what is to be a shop to OLDE. The southern end of the building will be used by OLDE, which sells antiques, home decor, furniture, upcycled and repurposed goods, unique gifts and vintage clothing and accessories. The shop currently has a location in Carlinville and will open up a second location in the space. When running through what the restaurant side could be, it was decided: barbecue. “We just saw a need for barbecue,” Hannah Marshall, manager and daughter, said. The two did not have any experience with barbecue outside of what they did with their grill at home. This is when they (See, BBQ, A2)

Casting announced for Jersey Boys BBQ

Casting has been announced for the highlyanticipated return engagement of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, playing the Fabulous Fox Theatre Jan. 30 through Feb. 2. The cast of Jersey Boys will be led by Eric Chambliss (Bob Gaudio), Corey Greenan (Tommy DeVito), Jon Hacker (Frankie Valli) and Michael Milton (Nick Massi) as The Four Seasons. The ensemble of Jersey Boys includes Andrés Acosta, Justin Albinder, Ashley Bruce, Kenneth Quinney Francoeur, Katie Goffman, Connor Lyon, Kevin Patrick Martin, Sean McGee, Hamilton Moore, Bruno Vida and Amy Weaver. Jersey Boys is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award, the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and the 2010 Helpmann Award for Best Musical (Australia). Jersey Boys worldwide has been seen by over 26 million people (as of January 2019). Directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo. Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story – a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.” Jersey Boys opened in New York on Nov. 6, 2005 and by the time it closed over 11 years later on Jan. 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd

Throughout the six months of preparation, Jersey County Fair Pageant Director Jamie Simpson and Co-Director Holly Steckel have been supporting Lamer. Simpson had nothing but praise for this year’s Miss Jersey County. “Sara has been such a joy as Miss Jersey County,” Simpson said. “She has been a huge presence in the community and it has been so great.” Among those supporting Lamer has also been the community. “I have the best county and community in the entire universe,” Lamer said. “They have been supportive right from the beginning. One thing I really do admire about this community is that we always come together as family whether it’s when tragedy strikes, or accomplishments are achieved. “The love and support my community has brought to me has pushed me to do the best I

can while representing Jersey County.” Lamer is among 73 contestants heading to Springfield this weekend; however, Jersey County Fair Pageant Director Jamie Simpson assured Lamer is a standout. “Sara has a very unique background that makes her stand out,” Simpson said. “She has a wonderful personality and her speaking skills are very outstanding.” Lamer will be competing in the afternoon competition, which will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday with finals on Sunday evening. Should she

be crowned, Lamer would see it as an incredible blessing. Her goal going in, though, is to place in the top 15 at least. “But honestly, as long as I know I did the best I possibly could, there is no way I could leave Springfield disappointed,” she said. “There are so many amazing women competing for this title, and each one of us bring something different to the table. Any of the 73 queens would do a phenomenal job representing the Illinois Association of Agriculture Fairs, so it’s definitely going to be tough competition.”

Poole has been a lover of barbecue for years, doing competition barbecue for about 10 years with his father-in-law as well as catering. “I wanted to stay true to what Debbie and Terry wanted, and they just wanted good hometown barbecue, cooked the old way — the way our grandpas started barbecuing — low and slow with good local wood,” Poole said. The wood is sourced from Eckert’s in the county — a point of pride for Debbie and Terry. Debbie said practically everything from the wood to the kitchen appliances to the tables is locally sourced. “We wanted to keep it local,” Debbie said.

When developing the favor of the what the restaurant was going to offer, Poole said he tried to gear it toward the apple. “I knew that they had connections with Eckert’s so I sort of geared everything toward the apple as the fruit wood that we use,” Poole said. “So, all of the barbecue sauces have apple notes in them… trying to stay true to what we have right here in Jersey County and making sure it is something we can be proud of here locally.” Poole said it has been a blast developing the sauces for Jersey Hometown. “(They) have been awesome kind of letting me be as creative as I want to,” Poole said. Currently, they have a spicy, sweet, mustard and house barbecue sauce. On the menu, there are the staples of any barbecue place like pulled pork and smoked

A Jersey County Highway Department truck driver initially spotted what he believed to be a person in a field. Decker rushed to the scene in response to the call. Upon arrival, Decker spotted the young man laying in the snow-covered field. After a second glance, he spotted that his hands were nearly frost bitten and his pants were frozen to his body. As a precaution, the boy was transported to Jersey County Hospital. Jersey 100 entered in lease agreement for 12 new buses At the Jersey Unit 100 school board meeting, Transportation Director Alan Churchman presented the board with the bus lease agreement that was discussed back in December. The board then passed the motion to accept a proposal for a three-year lease term on 12 buses with Central States Bus Sales. The district was also going to purchase a camera system for each bus, which makes it only $1,000 more per bus. MARCH Nine crashes in two months occurred on US 67 Since beginning of the year, there have been a total of nine accidents that occurred on US Highway 67, eight of which

were between Jerseyville and Godfrey. In an attempt to combat the inherent danger of the highway, the Jersey County Sheriff’s Office had increased patrols in that area, and throughout the entirety of the county. Common places of accidents on US 67 have been near Stagecoach Road North, and where the highway goes from two to four lanes. Major flooding predicted for spring The National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have predicted major flooding in the area due to snowfall up north. The conditions that affect the spring flood include the amount of snow covering on the ground, the expected precipitation over the next month and the temperature over the next month and if the temperature rises all of a sudden and fast, all that melts at once out of the table and comes into the river.

brisket and sides such as mac and cheese and potato salad, but also, Poole and Debbie recommended the burnt ends and the Hometown sweet potato salad with a cajun-hint to it. “The burnt ends with our sweet house sauce, you can’t go wrong,” Poole said. “Get here fast because they are going to sell out every single night… If you are new to barbecue, start there.” With the entire menu, Debbie said it was important that all of the variety of smoked meats are smoked on site. Debbie said they are still working on developing more sauces and potentially adding items to the menu, but at this time, they are trying to ease into it. Currently, the restaurant is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch at their location at 309 N State St. in Jerseyville.

With precipitation over the next month predicted to be high and temperatures predicted to be slightly below normal, major flooding was predicted to potentially occur. Walmart renovations set to continue into April If you have visited the local Walmart recently, you may have noticed drastic changes taking place. It also may seem chaotic trying to find what you need and finish up your shopping in a timely manner, but it is being done to both update and revitalize the store. Walmart typically remodels stores on a five-to-seven-year schedule. In 2019, the corporation launched an $11 billion dollar spending plan that will facilitate approximately 500 remodels and 20 new store openings nationwide. According to Walmart Communications Director Tiffany Wilson, the company selected Jerseyville for one of the remodels to better benefit the customers.

Publisher/Advertising Director: Nichole Liehr

t this point, the new year’s tradition has become more of a game than anything else.

At the start of the year, people make determinations of what their New Year’s Resolution is going to be. Deliberating through the multitude of things one can do in their life to change it for the better can be fun, challenging and even cathartic. Oftentimes, these resolutions, should they be seen through, can have a meaningful and lasting impact on a person’s life. It could be going to the gym more, consuming less sugar, or being with family more. This is, of course, if the person follows through with the resolution they may have so boldly made at the beginning of the new year. It has been well-documented, though, that this is not the case. According to U.S. News & World Report, the failure rate for New Year’s resolutions is said to be about 80 percent by the second week of February, so the odds are against a person immediately after setting the goal. That is a stark rate at which people are making goals to change and then not following through. This might not be a shock to some, though. After all, it is human nature to not follow through in some cases. But, many of the resolutions made are achievable, especially when it comes to the most common ones like eating healthier or losing weight. Numerous news pieces have dived into the subject and advised what to do to ensure these resolutions are fulfilled. Many have good advice. Make sure the resolutions are specific and are realistic. Instead of promising to vaguely lose weight, be specific and realistic about how much you want to lose. Plan out the details of the goal. Many jump in with no real plan outside of the general notion that they want to fix or change something in their life, but plans are important to keep a person on track. And lastly, track the progress of the goal. But, all of the advice around sticking to resolutions avoids talking about one key point: resolutions are just goals. Resolutions are not a contract with yourself that can only be made at the beginning of the year. Resolutions are goals and, as such, can be changed and restarted at any point. When people fail these resolutions, it can often be the case that they, consciously or subconsciously, wait for the next year to try it again. But change can happen tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and seven months from now. The hype around changing with the new year is understandable, but keep in mind goals for improvement can and should happen throughout the year. Assessing realistic and positive ways to improve could be a beneficial inclusion into a person’s life. So, if you have a resolution that you might have already slacked on, know tomorrow can be the day another goal, a revised goal or the same goal can be set. “New year, new you” can happen at any time. Let Thursday, Jan. 16 or Friday, Jan. 17 or any day following be that time.

YOUR VIEWS Tariffs are hurting, not helping TO THE EDITOR: In talking to many people from all walks of life in the year, it has become obvious that many Americans don’t understand the workings of the Chinese tariffs. This is what’s going on. The U.S. government levies the imported taxes on the Chinese companies exporting to the U.S. The Chinese companies then add the tax cost to the billing for the U.S. Importers who pay the tax and pass it on to the American consumer. Up until August 2019, the Chinese tariffs have cost Americans about $27 billion. I think it figures out to almost $900 per American family. Also, because of the tariffs, the Chinese have stopped buying for at least a year or two, billions of dollars of soybeans and other U.S. farm products they have traditionally bought for many years. Personally, I don’t see any advantages of usefulness to the Chinese tariffs. Life can be hard for American farmers, and they really don’t need our government making things more difficult. Information on the tariffs is available online at several independent sites and Goldman/Sachs, a Wall Street company that many people respect, did its own survey on the tariffs and reported what I’ve said above to be true. For the most part, the Chinese aren’t paying the tariffs; you and I are. People who tell you different, either on social media or at the local restaurant, are uniformed and incorrect. MICHAEL J. IBEY Grafton, Ill.

We should demand better from a president TO THE EDITOR: Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump elevated Kim Jung Un. Photo opportunities, summits, appearing equal to the America President. U.S. military drills in the area were canceled, which degrades readiness. In return, the U.S.got nothing. North Korea now has new threats for the U.S. as it moves along unobstructed with its weapons programs. The Kurds were loyal allies to the U.S.

in the fight against ISIS, at a cost of more than 11,000 lives. But following a phone call with Turkish President Erdogan, Trump ordered U.S. troops to withdraw from Kurdish controlled territory. As U.S. special forces abandoned their posts, the powerful Turkish military crushed Kurdish defenses and left hundreds dead and thousands displaced. The security vacuum is already being exploited by dormant ISIS fighters, fueling fears of a resurgence. Russia has now emerged as the chief force in the Middle East due to this betrayal. This week, Trump ordered the killing of Iran’s second in command. No one is defending Soleimani, a known architect of murder. However, many previous opportunities to do this were not taken due to the possible long term consequences. Now, Trump is threatening war crimes via Twitter. Iraq has voted to kick U.S. troops out of their country. The U.S. has paused operations against ISIS. Iran has reversed course and said it will now try to develop nuclear weapons and take revenge on the U.S. Despite the intense tribalism in this country right now, at some point Americans should unite and demand better. The commander in chief should understand strategy, should value diplomacy, should listen to experts and should respect rules. The security of our country shouldn’t depend on the impulses of a reality TV host. JODY REYNOLDS Jerseyville, Ill.

Comments on Hallmark ad were not hateful TO THE EDITOR: This is in reference to the recent letter to the editor in the Jersey County Journal. People have called it a hate-filled, homophobic rant. God loves sinners, not sin. God loves homosexuals, not homosexuality. Homosexuality is part of the reason we have a problem with STDs in America, not the whole problem. Heterosexuals are just as much to blame. God designed sex to be within traditional marriage. If we followed God’s commands regarding sex, we wouldn’t have the problems with STDs that we have. If we accept homosexuality, what’s to stop us from accepting other sexual perversions? ROGER NEWBERRY Jerseyville, Ill.

James Donald Sinclair lived an extraordinary life J

ames Donald Sinclair was born in the Highlands of Scotland on May 27, 1829. At age 11, he went to sea, shipping out of London as a midshipman aboard the Derwent, a sailing ship engaged in trade with Austrailia, where gold had been recently discovered. While on a homeward voyage, the ship was caught in a terrific storm and driven so far south that their progress was obstructed by ice and the sun was visible only 25 minutes each day. After 135 tedious days, they arrived safely in London. James then signed up to serve as chief officer of the Minerva, bound for Riga, Russia. On the passage home, the vessel encountered severe storms and was detained on the coast of Norway for three months. After his return to London, James went to Edinburgh, Scotland, where he attended school. But the sea called, and he returned to Liverpool a short time later, signing on as a seaman on the St. Andrews bound for Canada. The ship ran into ice on the banks of Newfoundland and was delayed 21 days. Supplies ran so low that each man received one spoonful of boiled rice and one spoonful of molasses per day. When the ship finally reached Montreal, all hands deserted ship. Half the crew went to Quebec; the other half, including James, went to the lakes. He went on to captain the Henry Clay, a lake schooner and taught writing school in Buffalo, N.Y., during the winter of 1849-50. At age 30, James gave up the life of a sea captain to serve as a ship chandler (someone who deals in supplies and equipment for ships). He then worked in the shipping and commission business until the Civil War.

I n Guest Column 1862, James BY BETH MCGLASSON enlisted in the Union. During the war, he served in the navy as an executive officer and captain of different gunboats, running the blockades on the Mississippi River. After the Civil War, he engaged in the cotton trade in the South for some time and lost a substantial amount of money when Jesse James and his gang commandeered a shipment of cotton. James then went to Chicago to captain a steamboat on the Illinois River. Sometime before 1870, James settled in the Coon Creek area of western Jersey County, where he purchased an acre of woodland. After clearing the land, he built a storehouse and a blacksmith shop. He was Rosedale’s first postmaster, earning a salary of $12, and for several years ran a stone business in the area. In 1875, he returned to Scotland, traveling throughout Great Britain and northern Europe for nine months. He then returned to Rosedale. In 1889, James married Ida Josephine Copley in Madison Co. He was 70, she was 40. The couple had one son, James Henry, who never married. James died in 1909 in Sangamon County and is buried in Springfield. In his lifetime he circumnavigated the globe three times and visited most of the world’s continents. What an extraordinary life. –––––––––––––––––––––––––– Q Beth McGlasson is a history buff and vice president of the Jersey County Historical Society.
