Waning funds endanger Riverbend Humane Society SPRING fORWARD ThIS WEEKEND

INSIDE NEWS

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal The harsh winter has strained the pockets of many trying to heat their homes, but it may be the final straw for the Riverbend Humane Society which is struggling to pay for utilities. Started in 2006, the local chapter of the society takes in abandoned and abused animals in hopes of finding them an adoptive home, but funding has fallen short and the humane society is looking at closing its doors. Heating the facility has become a massive financial burden because propane prices have risen due to a shortage around the U.S. The most recent bill, Bill Stuart, Riverbend Humane Society director, said was around

$3,500 for a month. “I probably won’t be able to keep it open for more than a month if I don’t get some help from the public for the utilities and stuff,” Bill Stuart, Riverbend Humane Society director, he said. Stuart said he worked with the Humane Society in Alton for many years before noticing a need for a shelter in Jerseyville. “At the time when we were bringing it up, everything was good. Funding was good,” Stuart said. “About a year-and-a-half after we purchased the property and everything, it’s kind of when the bottom fell out of everything.” He said the floundering stock market hit its two major funders and the money began to become tight, even with all employees at the

“I probably won’t be able to keep it open for more than a month if I don’t get some help from the public for the utilities and stuff.”

Bill Stuart Riverbend Humane Society director shelter working on a volunteer basis. The no-kill animal shelter, located at 23402 Crystal Lake Road in Jerseyville, is still home to around 30 cats and 40 dogs seeking own-

ers for adoption. Stuart said he’ll work with surrounding humane societies so the animals aren’t sent to kill shelters. He said the shelter has seen reductions in funding from its major contributors, noting every individual who works at the shelter is a volunteer worker, including himself. He said the shelter accepts donations of any kind, but noted monetary donations are needed to keep the shelter open until warmer weather when it can hold its fundraisers. The nearest fundraiser is March 15 at TriCounty Bowl in Jerseyville where proceeds will benefit the Macoupin County Adoption Center as well as the Riverbend Humane Society. (See, RiveRbend, A2)

CRASH

Emergency personnel work the scene of an accident Thursday, feb. 27, involving a tractor trailer and passenger vehicle on U.S. 67 at Stagecoach Road. The driver of the car – a 2007 Lexus – was not wearing a seat belt and sustained serious injuries. The car's driver, later identified as Ralph h. Baahlman, Jr., was transported to Jerseyville and then airlifted by an ARCh helicopter to a Barnes Jewish hospital. According to a crash report issued by the Illinois State Police, the driver of the Lexus crossed the center line while traveling south on the highway and crashed into the northbound 1996 Peterbuilt semi. The driver of the tractor trailer was not injured. Baahlman was charged with improper lane usage and failure to wear a seat belt.

County board seat contested in primary By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal Jersey County residents will decide which names they will see on the November ballot during the March 18 primary election. After the general election in November 2012, county board members drew pingpong balls out of a hat to determine the length of their terms. In District 1, Democrat Donna Moore’s term will come to an end during the upcoming general election. She is not seeking re-election. The race for Moore’s seat is highly contested on both sides of the aisle with Jarrod Hayes and Kenny Grizzle representing the Republican side while Don Walsh Jr. and Wayne Schell represent the Democratic ticket. Only one member from each party will make it to the November ballot. Incumbent John Houseman in District 2 is seeking re-election in an uncontested primary. He will square off against Sandy Hefner, former board member, in November for a seat on the board. Incumbents Rhonda Linders and Gary Hayes representing District 3 are up for re-election, as well, for county board seats. Former county board member Ron Henerfouth is also seeking a seat. Those voting on a Republican ticket in the primary may vote for both Linders and Henerfouth. Gary Koenig and Ed Koenig who represent District 4 on the county board are also up for re-election. Former board member Don Little is also running for the office, and voters

on the Democratic ticket may vote for both Gary Koenig and Little. The only other contested primary race for the county falls in the Republican camp for county sheriff. J.T. “Terry” Day and Ray Sinclair will battle for votes to achieve a slot on the ballot in November. Sheriff Mark Kallal will be the Democratic opponent later this year. As for state office holders, the gubernatorial race in the primary is the largest Republican contest on the primary ballot. Bill Brady and running mate Maria Rodriguez, Dan Rutherford and running mate Steve Kim, Kirk W. Dillard and running mate Jil Tracy, and Bruce Rauner along with running mate Evelyn Sanguinetti are all running on the Republican ticket. On the Democratic ticket for governor, incumbent Pat Quinn and his running mate Paul Vallas square off with Tio Hardiman and Brunell Donald for a spot on the November ballot. For U.S. Senator, two Republicans are fighting to get their name on the November ballot in James D. “Jim” Oberweis and Douglas Lee Truax. Dick Durbin is running uncontested on the Democratic ticket in the primary. Running for U.S. Representative are six individuals split evenly into contests for both parties. In the contested Democratic primary race, Ann E. Callis, George Gollin and David L. Green battle for a future in November.

3-on-3 tournament to support D.A.R.E. back for sixth year By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal Heading into its sixth year, organizers of the D.A.R.E. 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament see no reason to mess with success. The tournament will take place March 16 at Jersey Community High School, beginning at noon, and is open to boys, girls, men and women with divisions for sixth grade up to adults. “Our first five years have been great,” D.A.R.E. officer Sgt. Scott Woelfel, of the Jerseyville Police Department, said. “We had about 50 teams last year, and we’re hoping for that many again this year.”

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal A motion to apply for a federal loan was left hanging on the floor during the Jerseyville City Council meeting Tuesday after no other council members seconded the motion. Streets and public improvements commissioner Andy Macias made the motion to apply for a loan of up to $1.6 million, which would be used to build a street department building – referred to as the street shed – on West Fairgrounds Avenue in Jerseyville. During that same meeting March 4, Mayor Richard Perdun said he would not vote in favor of the loan proposal as it stands. “$1.6 million for a street shed is too much money whether it’s one year or 40 years” Perdun said. “I’m not going to be in favor of spending that much of the taxpayers’ money for a shed. … There’s no shed worth $1.6 million.” Macias iterated that the application creates no obligation for the city to accept the loan, nor would the city be required to pay any money during this part of the three-tier application process. The streets and public improvements commissioner noted the loan has a 40-year term with low interest and annual payments between $90,000 and $100,000 throughout the loan’s lifetime. “It’s free to check into this for low interest for a 40-year loan. No cost to the city whatsoever,” Macias said. Bob Manns, Heneghan and Associates president, said the application process alone could take six to nine months to complete, and in an ideal world, he said construction would be complete after six months, at which point the first payment would be due. Finance commissioner Yvonne Hartmann worried about the city affording the loan, noting it may be best to hold off on applying for it. “We have to get through at least a year because we’ve got other obligations we’ve got to take care of first,” Hartmann said. Tying into Hartmann’s opinion was the proposed project at the intersection of County Road and Highway 109, a nearly a $1 million project for which the city has acquired a matching grant. Manns said early estimates indicate the city will be liable to pay for half of the project with the other half coming from federal grant money. (See, council, A2)

Stuart said he does not expect the fundraiser alone will get the shelter through the rest of the winter, but is hopeful for the future.

To donate food for the animals, cleaning supplies to keep the facility sanitary or leave a monetary donation to the shelter, visit the society at 23402 Crystal Lake Road in Jerseyville.

The bills have to be paid,” Hartmann said. “No, I’m not in favor of doing it, but our backs are against the wall, and we have to do something.” After the issue was raised by Jerseyville resident Clifford Coats, city attorney George Wittman said borrowing the money would not violate Illinois statute which forbids a city from borrowing – excluding bonded debt – more than 8.625 percent of the assessed value of all taxable property in the city. Coats also spoke during public comment asking Russell how the city intends to “tighten its belt” in regards to the water fund. The public health and safety commissioner said the water and sewer department will have to refrain from making major purchases through the course of the loan. In other business, the council: n Approved a donation of $1,000 to the D.A.R.E. fundraiser. n Approved a donation of $600 to Willow Rose Rehab and Health Care Facility to conduct the annual 2014 Easter Egg Hunt. The money may also be used to advertise for the event. n Approved nominations of Dale Miles and Timothy Harmon to the Jerseyville Fire Department. n Approved to authorize Jeff Soer to negotiate the sale of the parking lot located immediately east of Stadium Theater.

Jersey Community High School Principal Lisa Schuenke is pleased to announce that 23 Jersey Community High School students from the graduating class of 2014 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars. This prestigious recognition, given annually by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), honors the academic achievements of more than 19,300 high school students from across the state. They join the ranks of thousands of top Illinois students honored as State Scholars since the designation began in 1958. Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top 10 percent of high school seniors, hailing from 675 different high schools across the state. Selection is based on SAT, ACT and/or Prairie State Achievement Exam scores, and/or class rank at the end of the junior year. High school guidance counselors work with ISAC to deter-

By ROBERT LyOnS Jersey County Journal Two local volunteer fire departments are benefiting from an equipment grant from the Illinois State Fire Marshal, and in turn the residents they serve could benefit, as well. The Jerseyville and QEM fire departments are two of 193 departments statewide chosen for small equipment grants. QEM Fire Chief Gerry New said his department plans use the $26,000 grant to purchase 10 new sets of turnout gear, breathing tanks and air storage bottles for a cascade trailer the department is constructing. When complete, the trailer will allow firefighters to refill breathing tanks while out on call. “It’s wonderful,” New said. “The last grant we received like this was four years ago.” Jerseyville Fire Chief Alan Gowin said the $25,682.68 his department received fully funds the purchase of a new breathing air compressor and fill station. “The current compressor is 17 years old and did not pass the last air quality test,” Gowin said in a written statement to the Jerseyville City Council. Both Jerseyville and QEM received grants at the high-end of the grant funding, which maxed out at $26,000 per department. New said the money will be a shot in the arm for his department, but doesn’t fully cover the cost of his planned purchases. “We’ll probably have to come up with another $5,000 or $6,000 out of our budget,” he said. “Average turnout gear is about $1,500 per set.” New said the grant does not arrive in the form of a check. Rather, the department will make the purchase and then be reimbursed from the state. “This whole process could feasibly take, start to finish, three to four months for completion,” New said. While the equipment being replaced by Jerseyville is not likely valuable to any other department because of its condition, the old

mine the winners. “It’s always a pleasure to announce the new group of Illinois State Scholars,” said Eric Zarnikow, ISAC Executive Director. “These young people don’t just represent the best in educational excellence in Illinois. Their hard work and continued success are going to be keys to the state’s economic well-being in the future.” While this recognition does not include a monetary prize, recipients are encouraged to cite the honor on applications for college admission and scholarships, in addition to completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on or after January 1. The FAFSA determines students’ eligibility for federal and state aid, including Illinois’ need-based Monetary Award Program (MAP) grant, as well as for many forms of aid offered through colleges. “Each of these State Scholars can be very

As a state agency, ISAC administers scholarship and grant programs that provided more than 170,000 awards totaling more than $415 million in academic year 2012-13. The State’s flagship grant program, the Monetary Award Program, continues to be a centerpiece in efforts to ensure that financial considerations do not prevent Illinois students from realizing their postsecondary education goals.

Marshal twice in the past, with the previous funds used to buy turnout gear and self-containing breathing apparatus. More than 350 applications for the most recent grants were received. In total, $4 million was awarded statewide.

Council (Continued from A1) Payments for that project, Manns said, could begin as early as March 2015. Hartmann said adding the federal loan onto those payments could put a financial strain on the city, and Perdun agreed. Though the federal loan application motion was not seconded, a loan of $2 million to make final payments to contractors for construction work on the more than $20 million water plant was approved unanimously. The water plant project was paid in part through the issuance of $18 million in bonds. During its previous regular meeting Feb. 18, the council pondered whether it could afford quarterly payments which will be just more than $106,000. The loan through Jersey State Bank has an interest rate of 2.375 over the course of a five-year term. Public health and safety commissioner Billy Russell said he reviewed the information about the loan with the finance commissioner and city clerk to ensure the water and sewer fund could maintain payments on the loan. “This is a lot of the reason we’re put in the position we are right now is to finish this project,” Russell said. “Water and sewer does not have to raise the rates, but we do have to tighten our belts, our operational costs, to get through the next three to four years to get this done.” Hartmann said the city has to approve the loan because the project is completed, noting she does not

Ferries close due to ice… again By BoB CRossEN Jersey County Journal Though the area was not slammed by expected heavy snowfall last weekend, ferries in Kampsville, Brussels and Golden Eagle closed due to ice. Until Feb. 25, the Kampsville and Brussels ferries – both operated by the Illinois Department of Transportation – had not been open for travelers since the beginning of the year, marking a nearly twomonth closure. The Brussels ferry closed Feb. 27 and the Kampsville ferry lasted

until March 2 before closing again due to ice. The ferries were expected to open near the end of January, but as frigid temperatures continued to freeze the waterways surrounding the county, IDOT delayed returning to full operational capacity for safety reasons. The ferries are not built to break through ice, and if the docking mechanism on the barge carrying traffic cannot lay flush with the landing, traffic runs the risk of being trapped on the boat. The Golden Eagle Ferry – operated by the Calhoun Ferry Company – opened early last week, but closed

again due to ice March 2. Because of the closure, the ferry company opened the Winfield Ferry to carry traffic across the river into Missouri. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation website as of 9 a.m. March 4, there were no dates set for the reopening of the ferries. For future updates about the IDOT-operated ferries, visit dot. il.gov/road/roadClosures.htm. To keep up-to-date with the Calhoun Ferry Companies closures, search “Calhoun Ferry Company” on Facebook.

Journeys receives grant to attract hummingbirds Journeys School in Delhi, a Regional III Special Education Cooperative facility, received a $998 grant to develop a habitat area to attract hummingbirds. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and the Illinois Conservation Foundation (ICF) announced Friday, Feb. 28, that 32 Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grants have been awarded from the fall 2013 application period. A total of $24,115.25 has been distributed. “The Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant provides children and educators with the opportunity to develop wildlife habitat, reduce mowing, and increase the use of native plants in Illinois landscapes,” IDNR Director Marc Miller said. “Students take part in all phases of these projects, and realize that they can make a difference in the world. These gardens also provide learning experiences that support the educational curriculum.” The Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant program supports the development or enhancement of wildlife

habitat on the school grounds or other public place. Funding for the program is provided through donations to the ICF. The Jadel Youth Fund, Evanston, and the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Foundation, Skokie, are the major sponsors for this program. Grants to support the program were also received from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Education Program and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program. More than $163,000 in Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant funding has been distributed since the program’s inception. “We want school children to learn about nature through hands-on experiences,” Miller said. “It is our goal to have Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant program projects developed in every county of the state and eventually at every school.” Applications are being accepted now for the November 30, 2014, Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant application deadline.

According to the allegations in court documents, Lamb “with the intent to influence a person whom he knew had been selected as a juror, communicated by way of Facebook to that juror that he should nullify any verdict of guilt in that particular case and vote not guilty or ‘hang the jury if necessary.’” Charges were filed by Ed Parkinson, special prosecutor with the State’s Attorney’s Appellate Prosecutor’s office in Springfield. When contacted Tuesday afternoon, Lamb said he didn’t know anything about the charges. Later Tuesday afternoon, Lamb’s St. Louis-based attorney, Patrick Watts, released a statement calling the charges against his client “baseless and wholly uninvestigated,” claiming the charges are backlash for Lamb’s “advocacy for individual liberties.” Two jury trials were held in Greene County Circuit Court on Jan. 13 – the date court records state Lamb’s alleged offense occurred – and only one of which came back with a verdict (the other trial was a$

civil matter). Roberta Lockhart was found not guilty of Exceeding Speed in School Zone by a 12-0 vote. Lamb’s attorney asserts the unanimous decision illustrates his client did not influence the outcome, even though Lamb commented to the juror that the juror should hang the jury “if necessary.” The lawyer claims Lamb’s comments were “clearly political speech, the highest category of protected speech.” Watts’ letter further states, “This case reeks of small town political retribution in an apparent attempt to remove Mr. Lamb from the ballot and retaliate for the prosecution’s failure to prove the simple elements of a speeding in a school zone case.” It was a speeding ticket which brought Lamb into the headlines last month. Lamb was issued a ticket by a White Hall police officer for going 11 miles over the speed limit. Lamb, himself, recorded the traffic stop. Lamb was heard making vulgar remarks to the officer. Lamb said he never intended for the recording to be posted. After initially pleading not guilty to the speeding charge Lamb eventually pleaded guilty to an amended charge of defective equipment. Lamb, of Greenfield, was elected to the Greene County Board in November 2012 and is currently running for the office of Greene County Sheriff. Lamb will make his first appearance on April 9 at 2 p.m. in Greene County Circuit Court with Scott County Judge David Cherry presiding.

Loss of Humane Society would be damaging to community

Publisher and Editor: Julie Boren

The issue: Riverbend Humane Society's financial struggle Our view: Like the animals they help, the organization deserves help

publisher@campbellpublications.net

Regional Editor: Robert Lyons

T

he hardships caused by prolonged frigid weather continue to mount.

Keeping warm has become a luxury for many since propane prices skyrocketed earlier this year. A nationwide shortage of the gas, used by so many in rural Jersey County homes and businesses, left those who have been able to afford the heating fuel capable of securing only a limited amount. Others have struggled to make ends meet during the crisis. The Riverbend Humane Society is an example of the crippling effect the price of propane has had. If Jerseyville’s no-kill animal shelter does not bolster its financing, and quick, it could be the end. Overhead is already at a minimum at the Humane Society, since all of the workers are volunteers. The only option left for the shelter is to turn to the public it serves for assistance, or close its doors for good. It doesn’t take an avid animal lover to realize the positive role the Humane Society has in a community. The main philosophical ideal to the Humane Society’s mission is preventing cruelty and mistreatment of animals – whether they be pets, wild animals or even livestock. The Humane Society is often where abused or unwanted animals wind up being rehabilitated and cared for. So, in reality, it is many non-animal people who receive the most assistance from the organization. Without the Humane Society the options for owners of unwanted animals would likely be less favorable. Locally, there are more than 60 animals being cared for, most of which are either adoptable now or will be at some point. It also doesn’t take an animal lover to help keep the local chapter of the Humane Society afloat. With fundraisers like the upcoming scotch doubles bowling tournament, anyone just looking for a fun activity can help out. Warmer temperatures, according to Riverbend Humane Society director Bill Stuart, will certainly help the organization in future months, if it survives that long. The organization receives most of its monetary support from grants, adoptions and funds raised at the Hope for Animals Resale Shop and Grooming Parlor in Wood River. So, it’s not like the local chapter of the Humane Society is constantly asking for donations. If there was ever a time to give to the organization, it is now.

Working from home… Does that mean housework? I

work from home. The third bedroom is my writing studio for nine months out of the year. During the summer, however, my youngest son reclaims this space while waiting for the next semester to start at SIUE. But because I work from home, people think I have it easy. There are a few comrades of mine who also have a home-based business that would willingly share in with me of how hard it actually is to pull it off—successfully. Funny thing is about a decade ago, I used to present seminars on time management and organizing your life. I was actually considered somewhat of an expert in the field. I knew all the tools and tricks of the trade and could tell you how to apply them so that you too could reach maximum efficiency. Now, all I can think is, “what the heck happened?” I feel like I am always running in the race, yet never reaching the finish line. Just writing this column today was a major accomplishment with many detours along the way. And my to-do list just keeps growing. I feel like I am drowning in checklists. I can’t seem to focus, and there are just too many things I need to do. Being a company of one doesn’t allow for delegation. But I am determined to persevere…after all, I know this is my calling. But there are so many other things I could be doing right now besides writing… Such is one of the pitfalls of working from home. Distractions.

Remembering my Calhoun gatekeeper I

had wanted to print this last week, but the news caught up with me, tangling my time as it normally does. It pained me that I got so caught up in my work that I couldn’t write down some words of gratitude for a woman who built up the foundation of my early career here in Calhoun County. I was still swirling with the words I wanted to say Tuesday as my deadline passed, and I lacked the needed time to piece those words together coherently. As the longest tenured employee working for the Calhoun NewsHerald, Barb Kiel gave me the low down on all things happening in the county – including the rumors and conspiracy theories – and the lay of the land in the company. It was exciting and as a fresh employee, I was an anxious, fledgling reporter. She took me under her wing. I was told before I started that it would be difficult to get my foot in the door with Calhoun residents because they are protective of their county and way of life. But acting as a gatekeeper, Barb left the door to the county ajar for me – just a sliver – allowing me to slip in and carve my own way into the community of which I’ve now become protective. If I didn’t have enough stories to cover the news pages in a given week, Barb was there with several ideas, and she had pictures to fill other space when the news was just too slow. She had my back. She was my first connection to

Calhoun, and by Err on the far the most influ- side of ential. She was the voice of Calhoun Crossen BY BOB residents and gave me perspective CROSSEN on issues facing a county, the population of which is around the size of the high school from which I graduated years ago. Coming from a relatively large city, I found it hard to relate to the area, but Barb was a voice that gave me the perspective I needed. Barb and I didn’t always agree with the direction things were going in the community, but we had a mutual respect for our opinions which made each other stronger. And honestly, I was the one who grew most in strength because Barb has always been a fighter. She passed on that strength of spirit and resolve to those around her as is evident by my effort to provide news each week, even when very little is going on. I’ve worked darn hard to be proud of this newspaper and what I’ve accomplished in the two years that I’ve spent here. But without Barb, it would not have been what it is today. It is with a heavy heart that I say “Thank you” to her. You will be missed, Barb, by more than just this young reporter still carving his path in the journalism world. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Bob Crossen is a general

EDITORIAL

Laundry, dishes, taking out the trash…every time I walk from my writing studio downstairs to the kitchen for another cup of coffee I see these things that need to be done. It is very hard not to stop and do them. And sometimes I do, thinking “what can it hurt to throw a load of laundry in while I am working at my desk?” Yet to do so takes precious time away from my writing pursuits and my clients’ work completion, thereby lowering my productivity, and therefore my income. No longer am I necessarily experiencing a “savings” by having a home office instead of an outside office location or maximizing my efficiency by lessening my commute or prep time. Another problem with this idea of working from home gets back to what I mentioned in the first paragraph. Perceptions. Though more people than ever are working at home, many people still don’t take work from home seriously. Sometimes, people with home employment are often treated as though they don’t actually work. Home-based businesses such as mine are also sometimes seen by others as more of a hobby than that of a “legitimate” one located elsewhere such as downtown. I have had these issues come up many, many times over this first year that I have been “back in the business” of writing. Changing people’s perceptions continues to be a real challenge, despite my background in that very

industry. I present these ongoing tribulations to all of you because of the public declaration that wrapped up my guest column Guest back in January. I declared only Column one resolution BY MELISSA for this year, and it was a big CROCKETT one. I declared publicly in front of all of you that it is my goal to have at least one publication of my written works in circulation nationally by year’s end. With this declaration I indicated that I also hoped that you’re all ready to help me with that. At this point, I’m thinking I might need some kind of intervention, discipline, and/or inspiration…but please…email, call, or message me first! –––––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Melissa Crockett Meske has

Your VIEWS Consider ISBA polls when voting for judges TO THE EDITOR: On Tuesday, March 18, Illinois voters will have a chance to cast their ballot in the primary election for national, state and local offices. Sadly, voters often overlook the many candidates running for retention or election as judges. This is unfortunate as judges make critical decisions that directly affect our daily lives. Learning about the qualifications of judicial candidates, and voting for those who are most qualified, will help ensure that we have a quality judiciary. Bar association evaluations and newspaper endorsements are a reliable, independent and relevant source of information about the candidates’ qualifications. As a way to help inform and educate voters outside of Cook County, the Illinois State Bar Association conducts an advisory poll in the circuit or district from which a candidate seeks retention or election. Polls are sent to ISBA members and non-ISBA lawyers who request a ballot. The poll reflects the opinion of those lawyers who choose to respond, and not the opinion of ISBA. The ratings are readily available to the public at www.isba.org/ YouBeTheJudge. (In Cook County, an ISBA Judicial Evaluations committee uses the results of a questionnaire, background investigations, and in-person interviews to rate candidates for judicial offices.) We encourage voters to download all these poll ratings and take them into the voting booth. The ratings provide guidance in selecting the

most qualified persons as judges. HON. THOMAS L. BROWNFIELD Chair ISBA Judicial Advisory Polls Committee

Urging the public to vote in primaries TO THE EDITOR: The calendar flipped to March on Saturday. As a huge basketball fan, it means the madness can’t be far off. As a political observer, the Illinois primary is just weeks away. While the NCAA Tournament is always exciting I can’t always say the same about primary season. Too often voters, both Democrat and Republican, find little reason to head to the polls to help nominate their party’s candidates. This year Democrats in Greene and Jersey County may be inclined to stay home, there are very few contested races. I encourage you to resist that urge. It has never been easier to cast your vote with absentee, provisional, and early voting. In fact, I’ve already been to the polls. Under the uncontested race for county sheriff on your ballot you will find the contested race for Regional Superintendent of Schools. An afterthought to most, this contest is extremely important to the future of our schools. Larry Pfeiffer, the incumbent, has been the superintendent of the multi-county Regional Office of Education for many years. While his hard work and dedication to education largely goes unnoticed by the voting public, he has guided the ROE to do more with less year after year. Due to some Springfield

political gamesmanship, Mr. Pfeiffer recently worked for five months not knowing when, or if, his next paycheck would come. When others around the state retired or found other employment, Larry stood the post as a committed public servant. He has implemented programs that help at-risk children achieve educational stability. Larry is committed to innovating and maintains active state and national associations. Enjoy March madness but take some time and head to the polls this month. If education is important to you, let’s return Larry Pfeiffer to the helm of the Regional Office of Education. MATT GOETTEN Carrollton, Ill.

Supports Pfeiffer for regional superintendent TO THE EDITOR: I am a retired Regional Superintendent of Schools for Christian and Montgomery counties. For many years, I had the opportunity to observe and work alongside Regional Superintendent Larry Pfeiffer. Our relationship was always constructive and positive. Larry exhibited a high level of professionalism and worked with my office on many occasions to improve educational programming and opportunities for the children, the taxpayers, and the school districts of his four-county region. I urge voters to nominate and re-elect Larry Pfeiffer as Regional Superintendent of Schools for Macoupin, Jersey, Greene and Calhoun counties. GREG SPRINGER Hillsboro, Ill.

This oTc Drug: Less Heart Problem Risk

Officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have reviewed pain medications and suggest that naproxen may have a lower risk of heart attacks and strokes compared to other pain medications. The safety review looked at an analysis from 2013 that evaluated thousands of individuals who took different pain medications. The results suggested that naproxen has less risk to the heart than other NSAIDS. It is suggested that this finding may lead to relabeling of naproxen packaging if the FDA approves of this decision. Naproxen (Aleve) is a medication that is commonly found in many over-the-counter medications and prescription medications that are used to help relieve pain. They all belong to a class of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDSs). Other medications that belong to this class include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and meloxicam (Mobic). NSAIDs are primarily taken to help reduce pain, fever and inflammation. Naproxen should be taken as instructed because it can cause harmful side effects such as bleeding inside the stomach or throat, upset stomach, and gaining water weight.

Jersey County Against Drugs representatives attend national prevention conference Two representatives from the Jersey County Against Drugs (JCAD) coalition, Jennifer Rogers, JCAD Chairperson, and Christine Smith, Health Educator from Jersey County Health Department, attended the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s (CADCA) 24th National Leadership Forum. The Forum was held Feb. 3-6 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Conference Center in National Harbor, Md., just outside Washington, D. C. At least 2,500 prevention specialists, youth, treatment specialists, community coalition representatives and researchers attended the forum. The forum is the largest training event in the U.S. on substance abuse prevention. “People that know me know that substance abuse prevention is something I feel very passionate about,” stated Jennifer Rogers. “I am honored that I was able to attend the conference for a second time and my mind hasn’t stopped brainstorming ideas since I got home!” Forum workshops covered a wide range of topics related to youth substance abuse prevention such as prescription drug misuse and abuse, underage drinking, tobacco use and marijuana use. There were workshops on the relationship between substance abuse and mental illness and academic performance. Some of the workshops uncovered the way tobacco and alcohol companies advertise products to youth. There was a strong focus in the workshops on local coalition development and how coalitions can advocate for community change. One of the most memorable workshops Christine Smith reported attending was presented by LaTanisha Wright, a former Big Tobacco employee, who has developed a program called “Follow the Signs.” “Ms. Wright discussed how the tobacco companies target youth, low income and certain racial populations. The tobacco industry studies how these populations dress, what they eat, where they live, how they spend free time and many other things. From this information they develop advertising to target these groups,” said Smith. “The deceitfulness of tobacco manufacturers goes beyond what is in advertising

according to Wright. Tobacco companies sell outdated cigarettes which are stale and can also be insect infested.” “Some of the workshops I attended left me feeling both angry and disturbed hearing the many sad statistics and stories, but the conference overall was extremely empowering! It was amazing being in a room with 1,500 other people who all share the same enthusiasm and goals as you do. To simply keep kids safe,” Rogers said. Both Smith and Rogers plan to use the information learned at the forum in their efforts to prevent youth substance abuse in Jersey County. Smith plans to focus on tobacco and the influence of Big Tobacco. “I want to teach students I see in the schools how they are a target of Big Tobacco companies. I want them to know how tobacco companies place signs for tobacco products near candy and how packages for tobacco products are designed to look like candy containers,” Smith said. At the forum, Rogers learned of the 2014 YOUR ACTIONS MATTER! underage drinking awareness

campaign which begins this spring in Illinois. The program is coordinated through the Illinois Liquor Control Commission. The “Don’t Be Sorry” education program is a statewide event to educate adults on the dangers of buying alcohol for underage drinkers. The slogan is “Think, Decide, Prevent.” “I would like to recruit teens from the high school to help disperse ‘Don’t Be Sorry’ materials in the weeks preceding prom and graduation,” says Rogers. “We all need to remember preventing underage drinking is everyone’s responsibility. Anyone selling or providing alcohol to a minor is subject to a $2,500 fine. A parent or guardian can spend up to a year in jail for allowing underage drinking to occur in their home.” For more information about the Jersey County Against Drugs (JCAD) coalition and upcoming activities, call Jennifer Rogers at 618-498-3500.

On Tuesday, March 4, 2013, students from St. Francis/Holy Ghost school observed a palmburning service at the St. Francis rectory. Every year the Catholic Church burns the blessedpalms from the previous Palm Sunday Mass to be distributed on Ash Wednesday, as a sign ofthe Lenten journey. The ashes signify that from ashes we were created and to ashes we shallreturn. Lent represents the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert praying and fasting to prepare forhis ultimate sacrifice, his crucifixion on the cross.

A

good heart is vastly superior to a powerful intellect, since a powerful intellect wedded to an evil or callous heart is sure to cause lots of suffering. It would be best to have a good heart wedded to a powerful intellect, but what matters in most cases is the disposition of one's heart, i.e., whether one is inclined to help one’s fellows. What usually inclines us to help our fellow creatures and to alleviate their suffering is empathy, and its ability to help us to feel, or at least imagine, what our fellow creatures might be experiencing. But, there are times when empathy can lead us astray and

we need our intellect to help us in determining what we ought to do. Most of us are more moved to action by the plight of some individual we can identify with, the guy on the side of the road trying to change his tire, or the single mother trying to raise money to pay for her sick child’s medical care. But, when it comes to helping people halfway around the world, refugees from Syria or starving people in Africa, our empathy often fails to be engaged, and there we may need to appeal to reason. God gave us hearts and minds, and we should use them both. – Christopher Simon

Celebrating Red Cross Month Local schools hold annual penny drive; community businesses and groups attend educational seminars March is Red Cross Month, and the American Red Cross Southwestern Illinois Chapter will celebrate by holding its annual Penny Drive at Jersey County schools and providing two free seminars on the Ready Rating™ program. “This year will mark our 11th year for our annual Penny Drive held in schools throughout Jersey County,” said Robin Summers, executive cirector of the chapter. “We’re very pleased that the kids will have another opportunity to support our cause while learning how we help people in the community.” Over the last 10 years, the school

drive has collected over $50,000 for the Red Cross. Proceeds from the drive directly benefit residents of Jersey County who are receiving assistance through Red Cross programs and services. This includes disaster relief, community preparedness, services to the armed forces, blood services and health and safety services. Red Cross Ready Rating™ is a free, online program designed to help businesses, organizations, schools and the faith-based community become better prepared for emergencies and disasters. It’s important to note that following a disaster, up to 40 percent of businesses fail. If not up and running within a month, 80 percent of businesses don’t survive. The Red Cross will offer two free

Lunch and Learn seminars, sponsored by The Junior Service Club of Edwardsville Glen Carbon. They will be held 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on March 6 at the Red Cross in Alton, and on March 14 at Hortica in Edwardsville. Lunch will be provided. Those wishing to attend may register for either date by calling 618-465-7704. Throughout the nine-county area covered by the Red Cross Southwestern Illinois Chapter, there are 16 Ready Rating™ members including Alton Memorial Hospital, Culver’s of Edwardsville, Hortica, Jersey Community Hospital, Silver Creek Elementary School, Southwest Illinois Division of the United Way of Greater St. Louis, St. Louis Regional Airport and Wegman Electric Co.

Concealed Carry Permit questions and answers related to hunting in Illinois The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) reminds Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holders that they must comply with current wildlife code laws and regulations while hunting in Illinois.

In addition, no person in the dog training party shall be in possession of live ammunition.

1) May a person possessing a valid Illinois Concealed Carry Permit carry a concealed firearm when deer or turkey hunting? Under the current regulations, Concealed Carry Permit holders are not allowed to possess any firearm, including a concealed firearm, when deer or turkey hunting unless the firearm carried is legal for taking the species being hunted. For example, an archery deer hunter would not be able to carry any firearm, whether concealed or not, when archery deer hunting. However, if a concealed carry permit holder is hunting deer during the legal “firearm” deer seasons, he/she may carry a concealed firearm, but only if that firearm is of the legal type for firearm deer hunting. The specifications for legal deer hunting handguns can be found on page 17 of the 2013-2014 Illinois Digest of Hunting and Trapping Regulations at the following link; http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/ Pages/HuntingTrappingDigests.aspx

3) May an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder be in possession of a concealed firearm when hunting any species, with the exception of questions 1 and 2 above? Yes. With the exception of deer, turkey, or dog training as explained in questions 1 and 2 above, an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder may possess a concealed firearm on their person or in their motor vehicle while in the field hunting any species of wildlife, unless the Concealed Carry Permit holder is in one of the prohibited areas listed in the Illinois Concealed Carry Act.

2) May an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder, who is training or running hunting dogs during the period when the hunting season is closed, carry a concealed firearm? No. No person in any dog training

4) May an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder use his/her concealed firearm to shoot the species which they are hunting? Only if the concealed firearm carried is authorized by the Wildlife Code to take (shoot) the particular species of wildlife being hunted. 5) On what IDNR properties may an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder carry a concealed firearm? Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holders may carry a concealed firearm on any IDNR real property (including bike trails, trails, or any

other designated public hunting area or building where firearm possession is permitted by the IDNR) with the following exceptions: All IDNR Office buildings, including but not limited to the Joel D. Brunsvold Building (IDNR Springfield Headquarters Building), IDNR Regional Office buildings, IDNR State Museum buildings, and any other IDNR building marked with the ISP-approved sign prohibiting firearms. All firearms, including concealed firearms, are also prohibited on all IDNR State Refuge areas, IDNR Dedicated Nature Preserves, and IDNR children playground areas. When visiting any of these locations, Concealed Carry Permit holders are required to secure their concealed firearms in their vehicle in accordance with the Illinois Concealed Carry Act. 6) Can an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder possess a concealed firearm on or in a watercraft, off-highway vehicle, or snowmobile? Yes, but only if the watercraft, off-highway vehicle, or snowmobile is operated in an area not prohibited under the Concealed Carry Act. More information regarding the Illinois Concealed Carry Act can be viewed on the Illinois State Police web site at https://ccl4illinois.com/ ccw/public/home.aspx . For other questions regarding the Illinois Concealed Carry Act related to activities regulated by the IDNR, persons may call the IDNR Office of Law Enforcement at 217-782-6431.

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL | TROY CLASS 3A REGIONAL

SAM ELLioTT Jersey County Journal The Jersey Community High School boys basketball team will play for its first regional championship since the 2009-10 season after the Panthers beat rival Civic Memorial 51-46 in the semifinals of the Troy Class 3A Regional Tuesday at Triad High School. The teams split their regular season meetings — with each squad winning on its home court — and Jersey found itself trailing 21-16 at halftime of Tuesday's neutral-site contest. The Eagles went on a 13-2 run through the second quarter thanks in part to the Panthers missing all six of their free-throw attempts in the quarter. Outside of the second quarter, Jersey missed just once in 12 free-throw attempts. "We weren't very tough in that second quarter," JCHS head coach Stote Reeder said. "We just didn't make anything." Jersey (18-11) cut its deficit to 31-30 entering the fourth quarter, in which the Panthers outscored CM 21-15 despite foul trouble letting the Eagles play the entirety of the final frame in the double bonus. "Things were really stacked against us it seemed like," Reeder said. "I was really proud of them and impressed with the way our kids finished with toughness. We made some big shots." Jersey junior Jacob Varble totaled game-highs of 18 points on 9-of-11 shooting and nine rebounds. Classmate Luke Shively added 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting — including 4-of-7 shooting from 3-point range — and senior Kyle Obertino was next for the Panthers with eight points. "The whole game, I felt like we were outplaying them. We were playing better than them, but every time I looked at the scoreboard

we were down three or five or something like that," Reeder said. "The next thing you know, Luke makes a couple big shots, Brendan [Goldacker] and Billy [Ritchey] made some free throws, [CM] missed a few free throws and I just thought toughness won us the game down the stretch." The Panthers will face Alton Marquette Catholic in the Troy Regional championship game at 7 p.m. Friday at Triad High School. The teams split their two regular season matchups. Marquette won a 55-47 decision Dec. 7, 2013, but Jersey claimed a 53-48 victory during Mid-Winter Classic tournament play Jan. 22. The Explorers are led by highscoring senior guard Deion Lavender, who scored 30 points — including the game-winner at the final buzzer — in a 49-47 regional semifinal win against Highland Tuesday. "Lavender's going to get his shots. We've just got to hope he misses some of them," Reeder said. "He took 29 shots [Tuesday] to get 30 points... When they beat us, he only took nine shots and got 23 points. His efficiency is a big deal. We have to make him work for everything. We've just got to stay in front of him, contest everything and hope he misses." Friday's winner advances to the Highland Class 3A Sectional. selliott@campbellpublications.net Mike Weaver/Jersey County Journal

Adam Fritz rises for a shot during the Panthers Athletic Club's inaugural coed alumni basketball game Saturday at Jersey Community High School.

Players from Jersey Community High School basketball past got together to benefit the sport's present and future players at the school as the Panthers Athletic Club hosted its inaugural coed alumni game Saturday at JCHS. The event, a celebration of Panthers and Lady Panthers basketball history, raised funds to go toward resurfacing and making improvements to the court inside George Havens Memorial Gymnasium. "We had a great turnout," Jersey athletic director Scott Tonsor said. "A lot of people are telling me they want to do it again. I think it was fun doing it coed because everybody gets to see everybody."

The squad made up of graduates from odd-numbered years edged out a 40-39 victory against their former classmates, teammates and — in some cases — family members who graduated in even-numbered years. Members from the school's 1957-58 boys Sweet 16 team and the girls Elite Eight squads from 1988-89 and 1999-2000 were honored and recognized during the evening, as well. "We forget how important a part of the community Jersey basketball is and we should do this more often to make sure people get to see all their friends and remember that these people were pretty good athletes when they were younger," Tonsor said.

Smith named all-conference

their properties, limiting patio furniture to a set number of chairs or tables. Some condo owners are glad such rules are in place, while others might find such stipulations intrusive. Each community has different rules, and prospective buyers should familiarize themselves with a community's rules before buying any properties within that community. n Condos often have management firms. Property management firms can be great to deal with, but they can be troublesome as well. A good property management firm produces satisfied community members who speak glowingly of their communities, while a poorly run management firm can frustrate homeowners who feel they are not getting what they're paying for. Some property management firms fail to collect homeowners association fees for months at a time, only to send letters demanding back dues down the road. Others simply don't live up to expectations, failing to make repairs in a timely manner while letting the property fall into disrepair. If possible, speak to current community residents about how the property is managed. If residents are not available, potential buyers should attempt to attend a homeowners association meeting, which can shed light on what it's like to live within a given community and how accessible the management firm is to community members and how well ittends to those members' needs. n Condos are not as private as single-family homes. Much like apartment dwellers, condo owners often share walls with neighbors. That means condo owners will have to sacrifice some privacy. Prospective buyers who consider privacy a top priority may want to continue living in an apartment until they can afford to buy a single-family home. Though condo owners rarely have someone living above or below them, sharing walls with neighbors is still not as private as owning a single-family home. Condominiums are great options for people who want to own their homes but don't have enough money or credit history to buy a single-family home. But buyers must educate themselves about condominium life before signing on the dotted line.

Stringent lending policies and the escalating costs of home ownership have led many prospective home buyers to consider condominiums instead of single-family homes. Condos are typically less expensive than single-family homes, which makes lenders and borrowers alike feel more comfortable. Lenders feel better because the loans aren't as large, while borrowers are more comfortable because such loans allow them to improve their standing with lenders, potentially setting the table for a low-interest home loan down the road. But the differences between buying a condo and buying a single-family home go beyond the bottom line. The following are a few things prospective buyers should know about condos before they view any properties. n Condos come with fees. Unlike single-family homes, condos come with homeowners association fees. These fees cover the cost of maintenance and repairs to the property. This includes landscaping and garbage collection, as well as general repairs throughout the condominium complex. Fees vary significantly from community to community, and the best deal is not always the one with the lowest homeowners association fees. Low fees tend to provide less bang for the buck, generally covering only the most basic services. Higher fees often mean the community offers more amenities, such as a private pool and gym for residents. Some people prefer such amenities, while others would rather find better deals on their own. But prospective condo buyers must include fees in their monthly budgets when determining how much they can afford to spend. n Condos come with rules. Owners of single-family homes can create their own rules for their households, while condo owners must agree to follow rules established by the homeowners association or the property management firm responsible for maintaining the community and enforcing the rules. Rules may not allow pets or only allow pets of a certain size. Other rules may restrict how owners can decorate their condos during the holiday season or how they can furnish the exterior of

Girl Scouts celebrate ISP prepare to issue first round 102nd anniversary, of approved Concealed Carry Licenses March 9-15 n More than 5,000 licenses ready to be printed & mailed nationwide. Today, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. is the largest voluntary organization for girls in the world. Its sole focus is to meet the needs of all girls (ages 5-17) from diverse racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. After returning to the United States from England, Juliette Gordon Low made a historic phone call to her cousin in March 1912, “Come right over! I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, all America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight.” The “something” was Girl Scouts, and the first group of girls embarked on Gordon Low’s vision. Low was determined to help expand opportunities and learning for the average American girl. At a time when many girls’ paths in life were limited to their social standing, Low’s vision was to establish an organization where any American girl could expand her personal horizon by having fun, while exploring new interests and contributing to society. The mission of Girl Scouting states: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts is the world’s pre-eminent organization dedicated solely to girls - all girls - where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives - like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. Today’s Girl Scouts not only enjoy camping and crafts, but they also explore math and science and learn about diversity, good citizenship, leadership and teamwork. Girl Scouting is the place where girls experience the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girl Scouting has inspired more than 50 million girls and women since its founding in 1912. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is a not-for-profit organization supported by various United Ways throughout the region. Girl Scouts is a Proud Partner of United Way. For more information, please call Jay Strobel at 618-692-0692 or Tricia Higgins at 618-242-5079.

Illinois State Police recently announced that 5,000 Concealed Carry License (CCL) applications have been approved and are ready to be printed and mailed. The department will begin mailing the licenses and will continue to issue licenses as they are approved. Concealed Carry Licenses will be printed and mailed on a daily basis. “This collaborative process offers the multiple layers of scrutiny envisioned by the legislature, and we believe that the law enforcement objections provide for enhanced public safety,” State Police Colonel Marc Maton said. Illinois State Police representatives were joined by Rep. Brandon Phelps (D-Harrisburg), Sen. Gary Forby (D-Benton), Illinois Association Chiefs of Police Executive Director John Kennedy, and Concealed Carry License Review Board (CCLRB) Chair Robinzina Bryant. Officials provided the first glimpse of the actual license, which is approximately three by two inches and is centered with an ISP security hologram.

“Our diverse investigative, legal, and mental health experience provides this important process and applicants with a fair path to obtaining a concealed carry license,” CCLRB Chair Robinzina Bryant said. “The board will use every resource and necessary

Each Concealed Carry License application requires the applicant to possess a valid Firearms Owner’s Identification card (FOID), or to apply for a FOID in conjunction with the CCL, to begin the application process. Background checks are simultaneously conducted by State Police while local law enforcement agencies review the applications for objections. Once objections are compiled, the CCLRB has 30 days to review the information regarding any application that has not been statutorily denied by the ISP. If the ISP determines there is a statutory reason to deny or the CCLRB determines that the applicant poses a danger to him/herself or threat to public safety, State Police must notify the applicant in writing of the denial. All final administrative decisions are subject to judicial review under the provisions of the Administrative Review law. Since the process began, State Police have received more than 50,000 applications and objected to more than 800. To date, no objection has been appealed.

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois will join more than 3.2 million Girl Scouts across America in celebrating the 102nd anniversary of Girl Scouting March 9-15. Locally, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois will celebrate the 102nd anniversary by participating in a variety of activities and events ranging from flag ceremonies at their school, birthday party celebrations, and community service projects with their troops, while others will create displays highlighting Girl Scout history. “Making the world a better place isn’t just part of the Girl Scout mission statement…it’s a real and lasting commitment to make Girl Scouting relevant for many generations to come,” said Villie M. Appoo, CEO Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois. “Girl Scouts has a long and rich history of providing girls in all of our communities with a first-rate Girl Scout Leadership Experience that will give them the courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place for everyone,” Appoo added. Girl Scout Sunday (March 9) is when many Girl Scouts receive special religious recognition awards for researching and exploring their religious culture and practices, while others will proudly wear their Girl Scout uniforms to their religious services to kick-off the week’s events. “Girl Scouting is committed to being an integral part of our communities and during Girl Scout Week, we salute all those who continue to offer their dedication and support – not only of Girl Scouting, but to the positive development of young people in our communities,” said Appoo. “During Girl Scout Week, we renew our commitment to making sure every girl has the opportunity to grow strong and realize her full potential. But we need your help! We invite everyone over 18 to volunteer with a local Girl Scout troop. You don’t have to be a troop leader – even if you can only donate one hour of your time once a year, you’ll be making a great difference in the lives of girls.” It’s been 102 years since the first Girl Scout troop meeting, and Girl Scouting has evolved from 18 members to more than 3.2 million
