Jerseyville building inspector they must respond within 15 days. If there is no response, the city may request authority from a judge to demolish the properties. The city would request the demolition bills be paid by the property owner, and could place a lien on the property for the cost of the demolitions. It is not clear whether the city will demolish the buildings or if it will seek bids to tear down the structures. “Not for sure at this time. We’ll cross that bridge at that point,” Soer said when asked if the city could carry out the demolitions. Soer said the property owner neighboring the Stryker Street properties expressed interest in purchasing the land if the buildings were to be demolished. The Stryker Street properties have the highest payable taxes of the condemned properties, according to property record cards accessed online through Jersey County’s property search. The 802 Stryker St. property has a $1,462 tax bill and the 804 Stryker St. property has a tax bill of $1,553. Of the other properties, the Linden Street property and Giddings properties have taxes of around $615, while the Lovejoy Street property pays $346 and the one located on East Prairie Street pays $426. Kenny Hines, Jerseyville resident, worried the condemnation of the buildings and their potential demolition could damage the city’s tax revenue during a time when it is struggling (See, condemnS, A2)

Laclede, 1st MidAmerica announce merger By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal Members of Laclede Community Credit Union who were affected by the May 2013 Jerseyville branch closure will soon have another local servicing location. On April 9, Laclede and 1st MidAmerica credit unions announced a merger, which will see Laclede’s membership absorbed by 1st MidAmerica. Beginning June 1, when the merger goes into effect, members who remained with Laclede will be able to use Jerseyville’s 1st MidAmerica branch. “There were a few members, not very many at all, that closed their account once we closed the location up there at Jerseyville,” Laclede President Perry Withers said. “But,

a majority of them continued doing business with Laclede Community Credit Union.” The move is good news for members of both credit unions, as there will now be 10 branches throughout the area, according to Withers. “I think it’s a very positive, strategic decision for our members going forward,” Withers said. “They’ll have more products, services and branch locations available to them, with better rates.” A few weeks ago, Laclede members received notice of the April 8 meeting where the vote on the merger took place. Those unable to attend could send a proxy vote by mailing in a form. Withers said in total there were 438 votes in favor of the merger and 28 against. “It was overwhelmingly (See, merger, A2)

JCUSD students excel, despite funding crisis By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal With so much attention given to the financial struggles of Illinois’ downstate public schools, the high level of classroom achievement Jersey Community Unit School District No. 100 has managed to maintain is brought into perspective. Despite being at a disadvantage in spending per pupil and class size, Jersey students continue to score above other area schools, as well as statewide averages, according to the state board of education’s Illinoisreportcard.com website. “I think our data shows that it isn’t about funding per pupil,” JCUSD Superintendent Lori Hopkins said. “It isn’t about how much a teacher makes or how much an administrator makes. What it is about is good teaching.” On the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE), Jersey scores exceed the state average – and the scores of several local districts, including Alton, Bethalto, Carrollton and Southwestern – in reading, science and in overall percentage of students meeting expectations. In math, Southwestern is the only one of those area schools with a higher percentage of students meeting the exam’s success threshold. The same holds true for reading on the Illinois State Achievement Test (ISAT), with Southwestern being the only school to edge Jersey. In math, science and overall score, Jersey leads

the pack. District 100 is ahead of the statewide average in every category. Hopkins said JCUSD has adopted a curriculum based on Illinois Learning Standards, which has integrated Common Core. She said instruction in Jersey classrooms is designed to develop critical thinking skills and use of modern technology in arriving at answers. “It is not a knowledge-based standard,” Hopkins said. In addition to putting an Internetready laptop into the hands of each student in fifth through twelfth grades, the district integrates interactive white boards and other digital technology in the classrooms. There are also carts of laptops and computer labs available for students in pre-K up through fourth grade. “They’re not staring at a textbook that is 10 years old and doesn’t have the most current data and information in it,” Hopkins said. “Technology allows students the opportunity to immerse themselves in accessing rich information so that they can develop, No. 1, the reading skills that they need, but also critically evaluate.” Advanced technology in the classroom, in comparison to antiquated counterparts, is expensive. But, Jersey is not at the top of the list when it comes to available funds. Still, the school has established remaining on the cutting edge as a top priority. Of the five area districts in comparison, none reach the statewide aver(See, ScoreS, A2)

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal Six Jerseyville properties could be on the block for demolition after the city council approved their condemnation Tuesday night. Jeff Soer, Jerseyville building inspector, presented files with photos and background information on each property proposed for condemnation. He said all the homes are vacant. Properties condemned by the council are located at 906 Lovejoy St., 1003 Giddings St., 404 Linden St., 900 East Prairie St., 802 Stryker St. and 804 Stryker St. “These are the first six that I’ve had the most complaints on,” Soer said, noting more properties for consideration of condemnation would be brought before the council in the future. The building inspector noted the Linden Street property has a garden hose hooked up to its water heater and that some of the properties look nice from the outside, but the interior condition is dangerous. The property owners will be notified the structures have been condemned, Soer said, and

By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal The largest Easter egg hunt in Jersey County will be even bigger this year. Jerseyville’s First Assembly of God (1AG) will host its fourth annual Easter celebration on Saturday, April 19 at the American Legion. According to Daniel Drainer, 1AG’s family ministries director, the church will have more eggs and prizes than ever. “This year, because we know that the weather is supposed to be really good, we went ahead and bought an extra 10,000 eggs to seed the field with,” Drainer said. “So, we’re going to have 20,000 eggs out there at the Legion for kids to hunt.” Even though rain and snow impacted two of the first three years, about 9,000 people have attended 1AG’s event since its inception. Last year the church gave more than 300 prizes out to children in atten-

Alton comes closest with instructional and operational expenditures of $6,878 and $11,090, respectively, per student. Jersey spends $5,566 on instruction and $9,277 on operational costs per student. The ability to rise above those schools in test scores, according to Hopkins, comes from the package of curriculum, tools and teachers Jersey has assembled. “A teacher’s No. 1 responsibility is to instruct students using the resources available. When you have a computer, your resources are limitless,” she said. “It is up to the teachers to facilitate information for the students and teach them the skills necessary to prepare them for the next grade, 21st century learning and post-secondary work.” Hopkins said the standards by which students and teachers are judged and evaluated are changing. Jersey was recently part of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) pilot assessment program, which the superintendent said will soon be a standard assessment for students. “I think it really reflects what students need to know in society to be productive citizens. It’s no longer just A, B, C or D,” Hopkins said. “I found our students were very prepared and capable, because we had immersed them in a technology-rich environment prior to piloting this test. Students are learning how to read texts with a watchful eye and how to make a determination based on their experiences with reading.” Teachers have had to learn to adapt their instruction to the technology. Before issuing laptops to students, teachers went through a year of professional development to ready them for the transition. Hopkins said continued professional development – ongoing teacher training to enhance knowledge and skills – is the most important aspect in keeping all teachers headed in the

(Continued from A1) financially. Andy Macias, commissioner of streets and public improvements, said the council’s actions on the matter are an investment in future property values. “I would prefer they rebuild it. I would prefer they fix them up, rehab them or tear them down and start over again,” Macias said. “We don’t want to be in the real estate business.” According to property records, the value of the buildings on each of the properties – excluding those on Stryker Street – is lower than the value of the land. The Lovejoy Street property’s non-farm building assessment is $50 while the land is assessed at $4,670. Similarly, the property on East Prairie Street has a building assessed at $210 while the land is assessed at $5,604. The Giddings Street location has a building assessment at $6,760 with land assessed at a little more than $7,500, and the Linden Street location was assessed at $2,500 and $5,800 for the building and land, respectively. Council members noted the Stryker properties looked better than the others, although they were unsightly in some areas. The one located at 802 Stryker St. has an assessed building value of $20,000 and the building assessment at 804 Stryker is $15,565. The assessed value of the land is a little less than the building’s value for each property on Stryker. The council also approved to change its parking layout at city hall to improve visibility looking

All eight of 1st MidAmerica’s branches will remain operational and two of Laclede’s locations – Alton’s Broadway branch and a branch on Route 111 in Bethalto – will remain open. “All of our employees are being retained. We’ll still be serving members at the locations at our branches, and some of our employees will be transferred to 1st MidAmerica’s branches,” Withers said. Laclede’s State Street branch in Alton, which is a drive-thru facility, will close on June 1, Withers said, because a full-service 1st MidAmerica branch is located a mile-and-ahalf away on Godfrey Road. “It’s a more convenient, more modern, larger facility than what we have on State Street,” Withers said. “Our location on Madison Avenue

right direction, whether or not technology is the focus. “If you review any research on successful schools, you will find there has to be professional development or they lose sight of best practice, because not everybody’s on the same page,” she said. Hopkins said she’d like to set up a professional development exchange, where other districts can have a day with one of Jersey’s digital coaches, for example, and in return a partnering district may make a math expert available for Jersey teachers to take pointers from. “It’s really about collaboration and cooperation,” she said. Teachers who can’t adapt or may not be effective in the classroom are no longer protected by tenure. With Illinois Senate Bill 7, which was enacted in 2011, teachers are evaluated on a four tier system that holds performance paramount. During evaluation, teachers are rated as either excellent, proficient, needing improvement or unsatisfactory. “Senate Bill 7 becomes your RIF (Reduction In Force) list, if you will. If you are a ‘needs improvement,’ you’re in trouble. If you are an ‘unsatisfactory,’ you’re going to be gone,” Hopkins said. During times when the district is not RIFing staff, an unsatisfactory rating automatically places the teacher into remediation, where improvements are required. Remediation includes a unique plan for each case, based on deficiency areas. A mentor teacher – a successful teacher with an excellent rating – is also assigned based on the areas of deficiency. JCUSD uses the Charlotte Danielson model for its evaluation process, focusing on planning and preparation, classroom environment, instruction and professional responsibilities. There are several parameters by which each domain is assessed. “I think the very good news is that we have fabulous teachers, for the most part, who go above and beyond,” Hopkins said.

March for Paws aims to assist Humane Society By BoB Crossen Jersey County Journal A local woman is hosting an effort to raise money for the Riverbend Humane Society while also getting people in the community active. Alexis Sweeney, Jerseyville resident, said she heard about the financial struggles of the local Humane Society earlier this year and decided to do something to help the organization. “I’ve always been an animal lover,” Sweeney said, noting she approached Julie Pohlman, owner of Julie’s Graphics, about organizing a fundraiser. “We came up with the idea to have kind of a marathon, a little thing for the Humane Society, and all the proceeds are going to benefit them.” Riverbend Humane Society, located on Crystal Lake Road in Jerseyville, takes in abandoned and abused animals in the hopes of finding each animal a home. This has been its mission since 2006 when the local chapter opened. However, funding began to wane at the beginning of the year and with high propane prices – bills as high as $3,500 – heating the facility became a major financial burden for the organization that is now run entirely by volunteers. Sweeney’s March for Paws, scheduled for May 17, aims to raise the funds to keep the shelter rolling until its larger fundraisers later this year. “I’m just happy that our community is so close-knit, that way it’s possible to bring some-

thing up like this so fast,” Sweeney said, adding the Humane Society has been grateful for her efforts. Bill Stuart, Riverbend Humane Society director, said the society is doing better on funding

“At a time like this for us and having the community pull together and do something like that, I just think it’s awesome.”

Bill Stuart Riverbend Humane Society director since its financial struggles through the harsh winter. Workers are still volunteers, he said, but the money will keep the facility running until its summer fundraisers. He said Sweeney’s event shows how strong the community is in helping those in need. “At a time like this for us and having the community pull together and do something like that, I just think it’s awesome,” Stuart said, noting Sweeney went above and beyond to get something going. “She’s been working really, really super hard on it.” Stuart said he has been marketing the idea

along with Sweeney and has even enlisted some help from the local Girl Scouts to raise awareness for the event which is open to all levels of runners. Understanding that not everybody is fit enough to run three miles, Sweeney said the event also hosts a one-mile walk for those interested. Adding more to the event, she said participants are welcome to bring their dogs along on the walk or run with them. Water and treats will be provided, but owners will be responsible for leashing their animals and cleaning up after them. They must also have upto-date tags. The top three finishers of the three-mile race will be awarded with a prize. Those who register by May 1 will receive a T-shirt for the event. T-shirts will still be available with registration after the May 1 on a first come, first serve basis. Shirts and registration numbers can be picked up May 15 or May 16 before the run on May 17 at Julie’s Graphics. Runners will report to Holy Ghost Catholic Church north parking lot for the beginning of the race at 8:30 a.m. For more information about March for Paws Dash and Walk, contact Sweeney by email at asweeney@lc.edu or juliesgraphics2006@gmail. com.

Calhoun fitness center prepares for Crunch Fest By BoB Crossen Jersey County Journal Incorporating exercise into a 5K run defines a Calhoun County fitness center’s inaugural challenge. The Calhoun Crunch is hosting its first ever Crunch Fest May 3, where participants will be able to choose between one of two programs of competition. Each one includes the 5K run, but those looking for a real challenge will be completing a set of exercises before taking to the track, which will include the hill along the cemetery. Nate Sagez, owner of Calhoun Crunch, said he has competed in a few Warrior Dashes, races with an obstacle course. And after each one, he said he felt more compelled to create a run of a similar kind. “I basically wanted to bring some element of what we are doing at the Crunch along with something to allow people – the general public – to come in, as well,” Sagez said. “As everyone who works out there and continues to evolve in their fitness we can add new challenges, as well.” There are two packages to

choose from when deciding to participate in Crunch Fest with the allstar package requiring those taking part to perform 100 air squats, 75 situps and 50 burpees. Burpess are a full body exercise in which a participant squats to the ground, extends their legs behind them, before swinging them back and jumping up to reset the position. He said he wanted to keep the first one simple to learn what it is like to plan such an event and how he could improve it in the future. For future races, he said he hopes to include kayaking or other sports of the kind. In addition to the race being his first event, the Calhoun Crunch was Sagez’s first business venture out of school, despite his late passion for fitness and exercise. It wasn’t until his later high school years and first few years in college that he became interested in lifting weights and exercising. Though he did take courses for kinesiology in college, Sagez is a musician at heart. He spent most of his college career pursuing a music degree at Southern Illinois

University at Carbondale after he was awarded a scholarship for his guitar playing. But he continued to exercise, even working at a few different gyms before realizing he wanted to open his own. He said each gym had a different mentality than the next, and he wanted to combine those ideals into a singular gym where everybody felt included. Bettering one’s physical condition may be the initial reason to attend the gym, but he wanted people to return because they felt they belonged. “It’s so much more than working out,” Sagez said. “You start for the results, but you keep coming because your friends are there and the relationships you make. That’s what keeps bringing you back if you fall off the wagon or whatever it may be.” The gym owner said he wanted to combine Crossfit style training with other exercises along with wide access to the facility when people wanted to use it. He put a couch in the gym to encourage people to come and relax with their friends, even when they

weren’t exercising. The gym was created as a social place and its popularity in Calhoun grew rapidly. Sagez said he was surprised at how quickly the gym filled up after he began doing some exercise sessions with sports teams at the high school. During the past six months, he said he has seen exponential growth and fresh faces at Calhoun Crunch. He worried about advertising early on because he didn’t think he could handle a large swath of people showing up at the same time. Registration for Crunch Fest can be done online by visiting crunchmax.com and navigating to the registration form. Registration costs $40 and those who register before April 20 are guaranteed a T-shirt. Registration can also be completed up to the day of the race, immediately prior to all activities. Participants report to the Calhoun Crunch to sign in where last minute registration will also be available. For more information about the Calhoun Crunch, visit crunchmax. com or like the gym on Facebook by searching Calhoun Crunch.

Hunt

(Continued from A1) be as big as it has been in the past,” Drainer said. “We even get to throw in some prizes for adults for bringing their kids out, and that’s pretty cool, too.” The egg hunt is for all children up to 12 years old, which are broken up into several groups. The search area is divided into sections dedicated to each group. But, with 20,000 eggs, there should be plenty to go around. Each egg contains either candy or a voucher for a larger prize. The first three years of the event, 1AG had scheduled a helicopter to drop the eggs on to the search field, but because of weather the chopper was only capable of appearing once. So, this year the church saved the money that would have been spent on the helicopter to purchase even more prizes. With thousands of people expected to attend, 1AG puts a huge crowd at its attention for the event. But, Drainer said the church does not use

the event to promote itself. “We’ve actually had pastors and people who go to other churches say, ‘You really need to preach at this event.’ We really just gear this event to love on the community. We don’t ask for anything.” Between preparation, collecting prizes and then actually putting on the event, the director of family ministries said quite a bit of time and collaboration is invested, which is all generously donated. “Our church family steps up to the plate tremendously,” Drainer said. “We’ve got a great relationship with a lot of businesses that have jumped on board with this thing the last three years and made it their thing, as well.” Doors for the event open at 9 a.m., with the hunt to begin at 10 a.m. “Everybody’s welcome,” Drainer said. “We like to stress the fact that nothing’s expected. Just come out and hangout.”

Brighton vets prepare for Honor Flight to D.C. By BoB CroSSeN Calhoun News-Herald Three local Korean War-era veterans will take a day long trip to the nation’s capital to visit war memorials as part of the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight program. The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization that aims to send every military veteran to Washington, D.C. to visit the nation’s war memorials. The Illinois chapter of the program took 512 veterans to the memorials in 2013 and aims to take just as many this year. Since its inception in 2009, Land of Lincoln Honor Flight has taken 1,853 veterans on flights to Washington, D.C. John Griswold of White Hall said he is honored to go on the flight to Washington, D.C. where he will be accompanied by his friend Carl Moran. “I’m very honored to get the go on it,” Griswold said, noting he doesn’t favor seeing any particular memorial over another. “I’m just open to anything to see.” Stationed in Stuttgart, Germany, Griswold said he was a company clerk for the army. He said some of his favorite memories were trips

to Switzerland to go skiing in the mountainous regions. He said he hopes to make good memories when he takes the Honor Flight trip April 29 along with other veterans, two of which live in Brighton. Stanley Eddington and Glenn Strohbeck are Brighton residents

“I’m very honored to get the go on it. I’m just open to anything to see.”

John Griswold Honor Flight veteran who were members of the U.S. Army during the Korean War-era. Strohbeck said he and Eddington were friends growing up and served together. The two will be have Eddington’s son as a guardian on their visit to the nation’s capital. A teletype operator for the army during the Korean War era, Strohbeck said was tasked with receiving communications from New York and relaying those mes-

sages from Heidelberg to their respective locations. “We worked for 24 hours a day,” Strohbeck said, noting it was tiring some days. “I enjoyed it.” Having never visited Washington, D.C. he said he is honored to make the visit. He said he isn’t sure what he most looks forward to on the Honor Flight trip because he doesn’t know what sights he’ll be visiting. The Honor Flight Network takes veterans on a one-day trip to Washington, D.C. where they visit the World War II memorials as well as the Korean and Vietnam war memorials. Veterans will also visit the National Air and Space Museum, drive by the Pentagon, see the Marine and Air Force memorials and finish the day at Arlington Cemetery, home of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. They will also witness the changing of the guard at the cemetery before flying back to the Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield. The public may greet the 86 veterans when they return to the airport at 9:30 p.m. April 29. Eddington could not be reached for this story.

BIRD SEEKS DONATIONS

Jerseyville resident Michael Davenport stops at the north entrance of Jerseyville Walmart Saturday afternoon, to make a donation to Children's Miracle Network, where a giant eagle portrayed by Got Faith? organizer Steve Pegram was "in jail," as part of the Jail N Bail fundraiser. Volunteers from several area organizations put themselves "behind bars" to raise money, which ultimately benefits St. Louis' Cardinal Glennon Hospital. The fundraiser brought in $2,733.48.

By ToM BoTT For The Journal The Southwestern School Board approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Jersey Community School District for special education services. Southwestern Superintendent Brad Skertich said the new agreement will mean shorter bus rides and longer instruction time for Southwestern special education students. “The longer school day will benefit them. It’s a positive setting,” Skertich told the school board Tuesday. “It is a partnership I think we can expand, improve upon and grow.” Instead of traveling to Bethalto or East Alton, district students will be sent to Illini Middle School or West Elementary in Jerseyville. Special education reimbursements from the state will cover part of the tuition for the program. “There are some pretty expensive bus rides currently,” Skertich said.

The district expects to send four to five special education students to Jerseyville beginning next school year if the Jersey School Board also approves the agreement. The tuition is $16,000 per student. The board discussed changes at Brighton North Elementary to improve the way students are dropped off for school. East City Limits Road will be widened by 8 feet coming into the school, and traffic exiting the school will be diverted so that cars and buses do not have to cross paths anymore. An additional parking lot will be added near the school. “In the future we hope to connect to 111, but we can’t do it all in one shot,” Skertich said. “We can expand on the plan in the future.” Skertich reported that volunteers have built a practice football/soccer field between the softball field and the prairie grass area at the high school/middle school complex.

gram for seventh and eighth for the 2014-15 school year for $25,915 that aligns Common Core and Illinois Learning Standards. Middle School Principal Scott Hopkins told the board he is “absolutely satisfied” with the program. The board approved a contract with Netchemia, LLC for TalentEd, software that is used for teacher evaluations. The new program provides greater transparency, improves communications and streamlines the teacher evaluation process. The cost is $2,500 upfront plus $7,000 annually. The board approved the retirement of speech and language arts teacher Mary Sue Norman on May 30 after 19 years with the district. Jeremy Lansaw was employed as assistant track coach for the 2014 season. The board acknowledged the receipt of a letter of demand for bargaining from SEA President Betty Schiller. The current contract with district teachers expires at the end of this year.

t seemed like spring had sprung, but the cold start to this week may have many thinking otherwise.

But, even if the weather is not defining it, with all of the outdoor activities kicking into high gear, there’s no denying what time of year it is. Fun fundraisers, such as the March for Paws and Jail N’ Bail events, are helping give residents an opportunity to get outside, enjoy themselves and play a positive role in their community. Jail N’ Bail benefitted a great cause in Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Individuals representing many local organizations – QEM Fire District, Jersey County Sheriff’s Department, Got Faith?, Jersey County Fair Board, Jersey Community High School band, Carrollton St. Johns, St. Francis/Holy Ghost, Toys for Tots, Charity Christian Centers, Walmart, the Jersey County Veterans Commission, a U.S. Army chaplain and former banker – donated time out of their Saturday to raise money and awareness for a hospital that serves many of the area’s children. Next month’s March for Paws will be essential to help keep the Riverbend Humane Society afloat, as funding has all but dried up. This is the perfect time for the community to come out for common good and enjoyment. There have been some and will be plenty more to come, such as the myriad Easter egg hunts scheduled for this week. There have been divisive issues in the county in recent months. Hopefully, one major one was put behind us last week. Since we’re all in this together, for better or worse, let’s take the opportunities spring brings us to start anew and rediscover the sense of unity that has kept the county strong for so many years. Good weather will surely help in encouraging people to get outside more, which in itself helps ease the tension caused from being pent up all winter long. Even attending events like a Panthers baseball game or track meet is a good way to get some fresh air and show support for the community.

JOURNAL SEEKING GUEST COLUMNISTS If anyone is interested in submitting a guest column, please contact the Journal. There are many topics out there and we have found that our readers have a lot of thoughtful things to say, on a broad range of topics. Columns, like letters, should add to the public discourse in a helpful way.

These columns do not reflect the views of the newspaper, only the writer. Length is no more than 800 words. Deadlines are Tuesday at 10 a.m. Topics are the choice of the columnist although we encourage our contributors to avoid obviously inflammatory issues (religion, abortion, etc.). Though we are a local paper, contributors are free to write about national or international issues (the pledge, the war, Social Security, health care, etc.). The Journal reserves the right to hold, edit or withdraw a column. These guest columns are an opportunity for our contributors to share an idea, an opinion or information; it is not an opportunity to sell a product or a service. We are looking for informed opinion and lively debate.

The little red schoolhouse I

was born in Greene County and my first grade in school was at Fayette School, in the tiny town of Fayette, just off Route 108 southeast of Greenfield. When I was 7 years old our family moved to the south side of Jerseyville which put me in the school district of Clayton School on South State Street close to where Jersey County Motors (Ritter Brothers) is now. It was a little red building, one big classroom, with grades one through six, and a student body of about 20, (maybe more or less, it was a long time ago). Inside the school were wood floors, and blackboards along the walls on one whole side and part of another. There were plenty of windows on each of the two sides of the building to make it bright, especially when the sun was in the south. The classroom was big enough for maybe five rows of desks with probably four desks in each row. A glass wall separated a small library with table and chairs inside the front entrance. There was a small room off the library that served as a kitchen. It was kind of a private place since the students always entered the south door of the building. There was a coat room and storage area that shared a sink where we could wash our hands. The furnace room with coal burning furnace and a small pile of corn cobs was off there. I remember a small fire that erupted in the pile of cobs when one of the older boys was throwing them into the furnace to give a boost to the coal fire. The fire was quickly put out with the assistance of the teacher and older students, and with a stern admonition to the boy who started it to be more careful. I was accustomed to a small school and so I had no problem with that. My only problem was that I was terribly shy and had a difficult time with new acquaintances. It was winter when I started and I was wearing a fur coat my mother had made for me. One of the girls picked up on the fur coat right away and called me “fuzzy-wuzzy.” Needless to say, it hurt my feelings and I was certain I would be miserable there. The next hurdle was to meet the teacher, Miss Josephine Tuetken, a lady of some 50 years with gray hair, glasses, and an aura about her that let you know she was in charge. As it turned out, she was a very nice lady even though she expected complete obedience. We called her Miss Josephine. She did, on occasion, use the wooden paddle she had in her desk drawer, but very seldom. One of the things I remember

most about her was that at lunch time she always drank buttermilk. For the life of me I couldn’t imagine doing that. She was always worried about me because I wouldn’t eat and I was so skinny. That was the last thing I wanted to do at my age and lunch was a difficult time for me. We ate at our desks and she would always walk past mine to see if I was eating. Most of the time I wasn’t. When I first started there we brought our lunches and those that wanted could bring a jar of soup and Miss Josephine would warm it in the kitchen. The second year the mothers began taking turns helping cook a hot meal for us and then we got a regular cook. I had an even worse time of eating hot food; I mean, if I couldn’t possibly make myself eat a bologna or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I certainly was not going to eat cooked lima beans, and chicken salad. Restrooms were outside, one for boys and one for girls (two seaters). The school was on a pretty good size lot so the outhouses could be a sanitary distance from the school. The boys’ was the furthest away and there was the usual worn path there. We had a ball diamond and the swings and seesaws (teeter totters we called them) and slides. Miss Josephine would come out in nicer weather and in the process of supervising the group would become involved in the softball game. We never had enough for full teams, but we had fun. Miss Josephine would root us on to do our best. We students were all from average families with a couple of very poor children. We even had a brother and sister named Victor and Valentine who were immigrants from Europe. Their accent would lead me to believe probably Germany or Netherlands (Holland at that time). Being a small child I really didn’t know for sure. Most of the kids were from farm families on that side of the county and we all enjoyed playing together. My first impression of the school was unfounded and I became very happy there. I had long blond hair and every Christmas I played the angel in the play. Miss Josephine always had projects of one kind or another for the different age groups. Each holiday we were busy making things to tape on the windows and offerings to take home to parents. The sixth grade students were allowed to try their hand at leather tooling. It was quite a process using a small hammer and decorative punches to hammer the pattern impressions onto

the cut out pieces Guest of leather. Once Column the patterns were BY on the leather, it was time to MADELEINE begin stitchKUEHNEL ing. Everything was hand laced together very intricately with a needle and pieces of leather lacing. It was kind of an over-and-under stitch that was tedious and hard on the fingers. When the stitching was finished oil was rubbed on the leather to preserve it. Some of the students made purses, which turned out wonderful and were precious gifts to the mothers. Some made wallets and key ring holders. The younger students, such as I, made plaster of paris figures of the Christmas Nativity that we handpainted. Miss Josephine had the molds and everything needed to make the figures. She usually mixed the plaster to get the right consistency and let us pour into our molds and we could pick out whatever we wanted to make. These were lessons well taught and we learned a sense of accomplishment and pride in ourselves. Miss Josephine taught everything and everyone and had some of us study and do arithmetic problems or write sentences while she taught another group. It all worked out and we learned a lot. I was always a good reader and was asked to tutor students having problems. Needless to say, I felt pretty good about that. I never liked arithmetic, although I did well enough to make a decent grade. English and spelling were easy for me and I mastered word usage pretty well. An outstanding memory, for some reason, was writing sentences on the blackboard. I really don’t remember anyone from our classes at Clayton School not being promoted to the next grade. Miss Josephine was one of a kind and she cared about her students. My tenure at Clayton School was three years, and I can truly say there are many fine memories. Once in a while when we drive by that area I try to imagine how the school looked behind its white picket fence with the lilac bushes growing in front. While our children these days have their great memories of school, I will always have mine of “The Little Red Schoolhouse.” ––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Madeleine Kuehnel is a Jerseyville resident and guest columnist for Jersey County Journal.

Switzerland’s Proposed Unconditional Basic Income…could it work here? Y

esterday evening I watched a segment on PBS Newshour about a very intriguing proposal to virtually eliminate the need for government subsidies in Switzerland and basically wipe out the devastating effects of poverty in their country. It made me start to think about whether or not the same theory could become a working reality here. According to several websites, articles, and videos prepared on this proposal, the grassroots initiative “for an unconditional basic income” proposes that “the establishment of an unconditional universal benefit” be written into Switzerland’s federal constitution which would “allow the entire population to lead a dignified existence and participate in public life.” Switzerland’s proposal is to guarantee every citizen a monthly income of around 2,000-2,500 Swiss francs per month (or $2,200-$2,700 US), regardless of other wealth or employment. It has gained enough supporters to trigger a referendum in that country. If passed, every Swiss person would receive a check from the government every month of this amount. This basic income would not come with any strings attached. It would be universal and egalitarian, which means everyone would

receive it and everyone would receive the same amount. It would be paid out to individuals, not households. It would not replace a lost salary, but rather, it would replace all “inferior” forms of support such as unemployment benefits, pensions, family allowances, student grants, and disability payments. The plan to finance it is through direct taxation of income and wealth, indirect taxation on consumption, taxing financial transactions, and most especially through the reallocation of resources currently allotted to financing state pensions and unemployment payouts, social security and other welfare payments lower than the amount of the basic income. So could it work here in the US? Perhaps. It is, at the very least, worth serious consideration. Something must be done in the United States to alleviate growing poverty across the country—something innovative and workable for our world, now and for the future. Something quite unlike the tried and failed practices of the past and the present. We can no longer watch our fellow Americans starve under crumbling roofs and just shake our heads while assuming they are just too lazy or otherwise inept to get a job that sustains them and their families at a livable level.

A basic Guest income would Column not take away a person’s incenBY tive to work MELISSA hard. The MESKE amount suggested by American Enterprise Institute’s Charles Murray is just $10,000 a year for US recipients. That would hardly be enough to meet an individual’s minimum needs, let alone live a life of luxury. However, it would empower Americans to be able to take care of themselves while also motivating us to continue to improve upon this minimal situation. The vast majority of Americans will always want “something better, something more,” therefore the incentive to work hard in order to get ahead and have those nicer things we all crave would continue to drive American capitalism and energize our economy. That’s my spin on this world view today…what do you think? ––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Melissa Crockett Meske has served as a guest columnist for the Jersey County Journal since 2006.

Greene board member appears on tampering charge By Carmen ensinger Jersey County Journal Greene County Board member and sheriff candidate Luke Lamb of Greenfield made his first appearance in Greene County Court on April 9 on a charge of Unlawful Communication with a Juror. Lamb was charged in Greene County Circuit Court Feb. 25 for allegedly communicating with a juror with the intent to influence the juror’s decision. Lamb appeared in court along with his attorneys, Patrick Watts of St. Louis and Elliott Turpin of Carrollton. Ed Parkinson, a special prosecutor with the Appellate Prosecutor’s Officer, appeared for the state since it would have been a conflict of interest for the Greene County State’s Attorney, who represents the Greene County Board, to prosecute the case. Likewise, Greene County Circuit Judge James Day recused himself from the case and Scott County Judge David Cherry will preside over the case. Following the filing of the charges, Lamb’s attorney, Patrick Watts, released a statement to the media, which was made public on the KSDK website, confirming the existence of the Facebook post in which his friend

informed him he had been selected for jury duty. “Mr. Lamb posted a link to a site titled ‘Fully Informed Jury Association’ in response to his friend’s request. Mr. Lamb, in jest, further made a comment about nullification,” Watts’ statement read. “Mr.

Lamb was charged in greene County Circuit Court Feb. 25 for allegedly communicating with a juror with the intent to influence the juror’s decision. Lamb later went on to comment on the same post that the juror should only hang the jury ‘if necessary,’ demonstrating that he was leaving any decision about the individual case up to the jury. The juror was already intending to investigate the issue of jury nullification on his own and Mr. Lamb knew this. Thus, Mr. Lamb had no intent to influence because the juror was already ‘influenced.’” The letter also states basically that

the filing of the charges was nothing more than an attempt at retaliation. “Prosecutors do not like to lose, especially in front of their voting constituency, a jury. Mr. Lamb’s comments, for which he is charged, are clearly political speech, the highest category of protected speech under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment,” Watts stated. “This case clearly 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.” Unlawful Communication with a Juror is a Class 4 felony punishable by a term of one to three years in prison or an extended term of three to six years, up to $25,000 fine or probation. A preliminary hearing date has been scheduled for June 18 at 1:30 p.m., and Watts requested another hearing follow on the same day. “We are anticipating filing a motion to dismiss in this case,” Watts said. “We prefer it to be heard following the preliminary hearing and request that the court take the testimony given during the preliminary hearing into account on the motion to dismiss.”

4-H Livestock Judging/ Nutrition Clinic gets great response Nearly 25 4-H youth and parents met at the Jersey County Extension office auditorium to participate in a morning of learning about livestock judging and large animal nutrition. Travis Meteer, Extension educator from the Orr Research Center in Baylis, presented a comprehensive clinic about the intricacies of livestock judging. Meteer has an extensive background in beef production and agriculture education. Rick Balsbaugh, AMD nutritionist, shared information about nutrition and health issues that can affect show animals.

Jersey's Jerseyville Banking Center supports Birth to Three Program Jerseyville Banking Center has made a $3,000 contribution to the Jersey Community Unit School District #100 Birth to Three Program. Branch Manager Phyllis Caselton and President Alan Karcher recently presented the check to Barb Kirbach, Nikki Cummings, and Julie Duggan, parent educators, and Michelle Bidlack, program coordinator. “This is the third year we’ve partnered with Jersey CUSD #100 to help some of the most at-risk children in our community,” Caselton said. “Our funding provides items the families can keep, such as backpacks, car seats, carbon monoxide and smoke alarms, and all sorts of household safety locks, plus lots of books parents can keep to read to their children. The earlier these kids’ educational needs are addressed, the greater the chance they’ll be ready to succeed in school.” The focus of the program is providing families early literacy development, parenting skills, and home safety preparation through home visits. Parenting skills classes, parent workshops, parent-child play days and parent discussion groups are components of the program. A typical home visit consists of the parent educator discussing child development, reading with the child, exploring home literacy activities, answering parent questions and providing links to other community resources. The Birth to Three Program staff includes two full-

time and one half-time parent educators. The program currently serves approximately 35 families and their children. The frequency of home visits ranges from weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly visits. Grafton Elementary School Principal Michelle Bidlack coordinates the Early Childhood programs for the district. In 2005, Bidlack wrote to re-appropriate a previously funded Parental Training 0-3 Grant and secured the initial Prevention Initiative program grant. She re-wrote the grant and was awarded additional funding to expand the program in 2011, which is funded through the Illinois State Board of Education Early Childhood Block Grant. The grants are awarded on a competitive basis and must be re-applied for each year. Through the grant, Bidlack says, “We know we have been given this great opportunity to touch the lives of young children. Not only are we impacting the children’s lives, we’re working with and encouraging young parents to reflect upon, improve and celebrate their parenting skills and accomplishments. The bank’s contribution allows us to provide much-needed safety equipment, health-related supplies, and many, many books for the families to keep and enjoy while promoting literacy skills and fostering the love of reading.” To obtain more information on the Birth to Three Program, contact the Jersey CUSD #100 office at 618498-5561.

Jersey County final multiplier announced Jersey County has been issued a final property assessment equalization factor of 1.0000, according to Brian Hamer, Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue. The property assessment equalization factor, often called the “multiplier,” is the method used to achieve uniform property assessments among counties, as required by law. This equalization is particularly important because some of the state’s 6,600 local taxing districts overlap into two or more counties (e.g. school districts, junior college districts, fire protection districts). If there were no equalization among counties, substantial inequities among taxpayers with comparable properties would result. Under a law passed in 1975, property in Illinois should be assessed at one-third (1/3) of its market value. Farm property is assessed differently, with farm homesites and dwellings subject to regular assessing and equalization procedures, but with farmland assessed at one-third of its agriculture economic value. Farmland is not subject to the state equalization factor. Assessments in Jersey County are at 33.19 percent of market value, based on sales of properties in 2010, 2011, and 2012. The equalization factor currently being assigned is for 2013 taxes, payable in 2014. Last year’s equalization factor for the county was 1.0000. The final assessment equalization factor was issued

after a public hearing on the tentative factor. The tentative factor issued in January 2014 was 1.0000. The equalization factor is determined annually for each county by comparing the price of individual properties sold over the past three years to the assessed value placed on those properties by the county supervisor of assessments/county assessor. If this three-year average level of assessment is onethird of the market value, the equalization factor will be one (1). If the average level of assessment is greater than one-third of market value, the equalization factor will be less than one (1). And if the average level of assessment is less than one-third of market value, the equalization factor will be greater than one (1). A change in the equalization factor does not mean total property tax bills will increase or decrease. Tax bills are determined by local taxing bodies when they request money each year to provide services to local citizens. If the amount requested by local taxing districts is not greater than the amount received in the previous year, then total property taxes will not increase even if assessments increase. The assessed value of an individual property determines what portion of the tax burden a specific taxpayer will assume. That individual’s portion of tax responsibility is not changed by the multiplier.

JERSEY COUNTY JOURNAL

Rutherford announces 1Q return of nearly $30 million to I-Cash claimants Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is releasing strong first quarter I-Cash numbers today that show the program returned $29,944,349 to 15,063 claimants during the first three months of 2014. “The I-Cash program continues to flourish under my administration,” said Treasurer Rutherford. “This is terrific news because it has been my pledge as treasurer to return as much money or assets to Illinoisans as possible. I am extremely proud of its success and of all the employees who helped make it happen.” The treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division’s costs, including staff, computers and travel, are paid for through the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund, and not by tax dollars. The Unclaimed Property Division has more than $1.8 billion in cash, plus contents from Illinois safe deposit boxes that have been inactive for at least five years. The cash comes from inactive bank accounts, utility deposits, insurance policies, paychecks and more. During 2013, the program returned more than $139 million in cash and other assets to their rightful owners, representing a 69 percent increase over 2010. Treasurer Rutherford took office in January 2011. Treasurer Rutherford encourages everyone to visit the Illinois State Treasurer’s website at www.treasurer.il.gov and click on the I-Cash link to search for unclaimed property.

Easter Egg Hunt Saturday APRIL 19TH

Earth Day is celebrated April 22, but for Trees Forever, each day of the past 25 years has been rooted in engaging volunteers in environmental efforts that benefit our world. The nonprofit is marking the milestone of its 25th anniversary with 25 special events this year, including Earth Day, Arbor Day and beyond. “We started Trees Forever because there was a need to plant more trees, restore forests and be a voice for natural areas,” said Shannon Ramsay, Founding President and CEO. “From day one, our vision was to involve volunteers in every way possible. I’m very proud that we involve an average of 6,000 volunteers of all ages every year planting trees and native plants. I thank every single one of them for their time, contributions and dedication.” To continue that string of volunteer efforts started in 1989, Trees Forever has expanded its TreeKeepers program, in which volunteers are trained to care for our community trees. The Trees Forever TreeKeepers program has branched out from its home base in Marion, Iowa, into Illinois, where workshops will be held on April 15 and April 29 in Hillsboro and on April 22 (Earth Day) and May 6 in Litchfield. These volunteers gain hands-on experience in the planting and care of trees and become a voice for the trees in their communities. TreeKeepers is just one example of the ecological initiatives Trees Forever is engaged with in Illinois. Earlier this month, as part of Trees Forever’s Illinois Buffer Partnership program, nearly 1,000 native shrubs and bare-root tree seedlings were planted with the help of 70 volunteers at the Fugate Woods Nature Preserve in Fairbury, improving water and air quality, providing beauty and habitat and many other benefits to the community. As you plan your Earth Day and Arbor Day coverage, Shannon Ramsay can provide insight from her 25 years of advocacy and grassroots efforts, discuss the history and partnerships formed by Trees Forever, as well as the benefits of trees and challenges facing Illinois trees in years to come. Contact Shannon at (319) 373-0650 ext. 111 or shannon@treesforever.org. Read more about Trees Forever’s 25th anniversary at treesforever.org

SCIENCE

AND THE FIVE SENSES

In conjunction with Jerseyville Banking Center, Jersey Community High School has selected its Students of the Month. The recipients for the month of March were Sarah Williams (9th) and Morgan Cook (8th). The selection of a Student of the Month is based upon the number of F.O.C.U.S. nominations a student receives for a given month. F.O.C.U.S. (Finding One Clearly Unique Student) is a program developed by the J.C.H.S. Student Council. Each week teachers may recognize students who have performed well in their classes by selecting them as F.O.C.U.S. students for that particular week. During March, these students received the most F.O.C.U.S. nominations. They are being congratulated by Carrie Kallal of Jerseyville Banking Center.

Barbara Smith’s second grade class at Grafton Elementary had a guest scientist teach the class about their five senses. Karl Herman, a parent of one of the students, came in to share his knowledge of science. The students got to see how our five senses can fool us. They also got to work with the scientific method and create their own data.

n Steely Dan, Hunter Hayes added to 2014 entertainment line-up Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steely Dan will perform at the 2014 Illinois State Fair. The Grammy Award-winning band, which has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, will bring its “Jamalot Ever After” Tour to the fair Friday, Aug. 15. “I’m thrilled Steely Dan is coming to the Illinois State Fair,” State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick said. “They are on our list of bands that are frequently requested by fairgoers.” Steely Dan released a string of Top 20 hit songs in the 1970s, including such classic rock staples as “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Do It Again,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Reelin’ In the Years” and “Deacon Blues.” Its 2000 album, “Two Against Nature,” the band’s first record in 20 years, won a Grammy Award from the recording industry for “Album of the Year.” Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29 for a Tier 3 Grandstand seat to $54 for a VIPit track ticket in front of the stage, will go on sale Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. The fair also announced today: Singer and songwriter Hunter Hayes, the youngest, solo, male act ever to reach the top of the

C3

Jerseyville, Illinois

Hot Country Songs chart, will take the Grandstand stage for a concert Wednesday, Aug. 13. Hayes already has six hit singles to his credit, including “Wanted,” which reached number one just after his 21st birthday in September of 2012. His second album, “Storyline,” is scheduled to be released in May. The first single from the album, “Invisible,” climbed to number four on the country music charts. Tickets for the Hayes concert, which also go on sale May 3, will cost between $29 and $49. Track and VIPit tickets for the Aug. 10 performance of Florida Georgia Line are sold out. Reserved seats, however, are still available through Ticketmaster and can be purchased either online at http:// www.ticketmaster.com/, by phone at 800-745-3000 or in person at all Ticketmaster outlets. Good seats also remain for the Boston/Sweet/April Wine concert Tuesday, Aug. 12, and the Jake Owen concert Saturday, Aug. 16. The 2014 Illinois State Fair will be held Aug. 7 - 17. For more information about the Grandstand entertainment line-up, visit the fair’s website at illiniosstatefair.info/ or call (217) 782-1979.

FAMILY FEATURES

T

his year, make your Easter ham effortless by ditching the oven and using your slow cooker instead. While most people think about slow cooking for staples like chili and stew, it’s also perfect for center-of-the-plate feasts — like an Easter ham. Using the slow cooker, you can minimize both prep time and cleanup time, leaving plenty of room in the day for church, hunting eggs and enjoying time with your loved ones. Ham is a tradition for many families this time of year, and because it pairs well with a multitude of ingredients, you can create a unique dish every time.

JERSEY COUNTY JOURNAL

SPORTS House putting IHSA under microscope C10

SAM ELLioTT Calhoun News-Herald The Illinois General Assembly’s House Committee on Elementary and Secondary Education will conduct subject matter hearings questioning and examining the funding, protocols and practices of the Illinois High School Association. House Resolution 895 — sponsored by Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora) — was approved by the state’s House of Representatives in a 55-51 vote Monday, April 7. The resolution calls for the education committee to conduct hearings concerning “the administration and funding of high school sports, the safety of high school athletes, the systems and protocols of the IHSA, the costs and income associated with the administration of high school sports (including any trademarks or copyrights claimed by the IHSA) and the feasibility of statutorily transferring the duties and functions of the IHSA to the Illinois State Board of Education.” While dates and details of the hearings have not yet been finalized, the IHSA intends to cooperate fully. “We wish Rep. Chapa LaVia had provided the courtesy of discussing any issues she believes exist within our organization prior to the introduction of this resolution, which has unfairly cast the [IHSA] in a negative light,” IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman said in a statement released Monday, April 7. “While we believe the hearings she proposes will be an unnecessary strain on the time and resources of both the General Assembly and the IHSA, we welcome the opportunity to clear

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Jerseyville, Illinois

up any misconceptions this resolution has created.” While introducing the resolution to the Illinois House of Representatives, Chapa LaVia said it is no longer her intention for the State Board of Education to take over the IHSA’s operations. “This legislation is about demanding transparency and accountability from an organization that oversees the health, safety and educational development of thousands of Illinois students,” Chapa LaVia said in a statement released by the Illinois Press Association Wednesday, April 2. “Citizens throughout Illinois have been calling for more transparency in government. With the General Assembly once again facing difficult budget decisions, it’s reasonable for the taxpayers of this state to know how the IHSA is spending the funds it is bringing in. I applaud the Illinois Press Association for bringing this to my attention.” The IPA and the Illinois Broadcasters Association have announced their support for House Resolution 895. “We thank Rep. Chapa LaVia for introducing this resolution,” IPA Executive Director Dennis DeRossett said. “The IHSA is presently subject to almost no accountability or oversight, they claim to be exempt from both the Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act and they argue that they alone should control any revenue that is ultimately derived from taxpayerfunded sporting events. It should be public knowledge how much revenue is being generated by these events and other exclusive arrangements, along with what percentage or amount of that revenue is being remitted back to the local school districts.” As a 501(c)(3) non-profit

organization, the IHSA is not subject to Illinois’ Open Meetings Act or the Freedom of Information Act. “To be criticized for that when it doesn’t apply to us is borderline ridiculous,” Hickman told Jim Taylor of WRMJ in Aledo in a radio interview Friday, April 4. The IHSA’s audits, financial statements and annual report to its members are all available for public viewing online at its website, www.IHSA.org. “We really feel like we’ve been good corporate citizens in this state,” Hickman told WRMJ. “We have a balanced budget, we do fund our pension, we have a system where we don’t charge schools dues, we don’t charge schools entry fees, we returned $2.7 million to schools last year in revenue and I would put our record up against the state’s at any time.” Schools’ voluntary enrollment in the IHSA has included waived membership dues for more than 10 years. Revenue from the IHSA’s most profitable events — the football and boys basketball state championships, which brought in just more than $2 million each last year — and its corporate sponsors is used to offset the costs of the organization’s events, which operate at a deficit. State championships for sports such as cross country, golf, tennis, water polo, gymnastics and others lose the IHSA money annually, as do events such as the state chess tournament, speech competition, scholastic bowl and journalism contest. For the 2012-13 school year, the IHSA’s net proceeds were less than $56,000. Rep. C. D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville) — whose 100th District includes Jersey, Greene,

JCHS sweeps Jersey Relays

Calhoun, Pike and Scott counties — was among those to vote against House Resolution 895, citing the IHSA’s generation of private funds as one reason why. “The IHSA has private money that comes in to support them. They have boards made up of the people they represent. I think that’s kind of a good reason to leave them alone and let the people affected by it maintain it, especially with private dollars,” Davidsmeyer said. “I understand the close relationship because they do run the athletics for the high schools, but I don’t think that more government regulation of it will help anything.” The predominant public opinion voiced to Davidsmeyer convinced him state government intervention into the IHSA is unnecessary. “The main reason that I was against it was because I had people from our school districts contacting me telling me that the IHSA is doing a pretty good job and they don’t believe the ISBE is able to take on anything else,” he said. “I didn’t have anybody say this is a great thing or that we should really work on this. All the people I heard from said this is a bad idea. Why would we think about doing it?” As a coach and athletic director at Carrollton High School, Greg Pohlman has been involved with the IHSA for more than 30 years. He’s spent time serving on various boards and committees within the organization and has seen firsthand how the IHSA is governed and kept accountable by its own membership. “They have an executive director and a board of directors that governs the IHSA, but they are directly governed by the principals and representatives of the schools who are members of the

IHSA,” Pohlman said. “The people who are in charge of the IHSA now — I’ve known Marty Hickman most of my adult life — you’re not going to find a better, more fair, understanding or concrete guy who has a love for not only sports, but for academics as well.” While issues such as private schools competing against public schools, the number of classes and divisions per sport and geographical postseason assignments are common complaints faced by the IHSA, Pohlman feels the association consistently does its best to serve and benefit its large, diverse membership of schools. “Any governing body — whether it be the state legislature, a school board or the Boy Scouts — there will always be people that feel there’s a problem and that there’s an easy fix,” he said. “You’re not going to make everybody happy. I’ve seen how they draw lines and make divisions and yeah there have been times we probably felt we should have had certain things or assignments, but I’ve seen how they do it and they’re looking out for the best interest of every school involved.” High schools that commonly host regional and sectional playoff tournaments gain a financial benefit from their involvement with the IHSA in addition to the home-court advantage its teams enjoy during that round of the postseason. “It’s pretty beneficial for the schools to host regionals and sectionals, especially for a school our size with a limited budget,” Calhoun High School athletic director Ryan Graner said. “We can get some money back for our athletic programs by hosting those. It’s a major help when we’re trying to stretch every penny as much as we possibly can.”

Supporters of Resolution 895 claim the upcoming hearings with the IHSA will prove beneficial in examining how athletics at the state’s publicly funded high schools are managed by the IHSA. “To reiterate, this is only a resolution, not a substantive piece of legislation,” Sandy Macfarland, chairman of the government relations committee for the IPA, said. “It’s non-binding. Like Rep. Chapa LaVia, we are anxious to see what information is learned at these hearings. I think it’s time we have a discussion concerning the financial and public policy implications of continuing to blindly outsource a profitable and easily sold product — in this case, high school sports — to a seemingly unaccountable third party. Only after these hearings, based on what is learned — or perhaps not learned — do we think the General Assembly ought to initiate legislation.” Those who feel the IHSA doesn’t need state government oversight or intervention question the timing of the resolution, which comes at a time in which area high schools have seen the state come up short on its funding to local districts. “It just seems to me like the state should have bigger fish to fry right now than trying to go after an organization that is above water and not charging schools and is providing all these services for schools,” Graner said. “It’s not like there’s been any major breakdown with our state organization that runs athletics.” For more information on House Resolution 895, visit www.ILGA.gov.

Safety belts are one of the most effective safety devices in vehicles today, estimated to save over 12,000 lives each year. Over half of vehicle occupants killed in a traffic crash were not properly buckled up. The objective of this program is to increase compliance of occupant restraint laws through education, child seat inspections, and enforcement. Greater awareness, acceptance, and use of occupant protection equipment will save many lives. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
