Fish plant causes stink, says residents

By SAM ELLIOTT Jersey County Journal Grafton Mayor Tom Thompson has been reassured by those involved with the project that the unpleasant smell coming from the new American Heartland Fish Products plant will be eliminated and he passed those assurances on to citizens affected by the odor during the Grafton City Council’s regular meeting Tuesday at City Hall.

Residents Sandy Sutton and Tom Warford addressed the council on behalf of eight families who live in the vicinity of the plant, which processed its first batch of Asian Carp at the beginning of the month and has run intermittently since then. “The foul odor was so bad, these people could not be outside their homes after all of us being told there wouldn’t be any odor or harm to the environment,” Sutton said. “These

families want to know what is being done to contain this odor or else it will destroy all of our property values.” Warford and Alderman Jerry Bauersachs said that with the wind blowing out of the northwest Tuesday, residents in Grafton Hills and at the American Legion were also confronted by the odor. “At 5 p.m. [Tuesday], I pulled into the Legion,” Warford said. “There were 15 people there and three of

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal The Jersey County Board tasked the personnel and finance committees with researching the impact of opening the County Government Building on Friday afternoons for the public. Board member John Houseman said the issue has been brought to his attention by his constituents. “I don’t know how many people have asked me why we do not have hours on Friday afternoons,” Houseman said. “People have made trips up here to do business only to find out that the door is locked.” Board Chairman Jerry Wittman said the offices were closed on Friday afternoons years ago to save the county money and ensure its financial stability. He said he spoke with the Steel Workers Union, which represents the county employees, at the beginning of the year, noting the union does not want the hours increased. Houseman said the issue is not that of union negotiations, as the county board can set the hours county employees must

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal The Jersey County Board approved a resolution outlining when a county board member is eligible to be paid for attending meetings for county business. The resolution amended language of the last approved resolution to ensure the county board chairman cannot receive a $110 stipend each month in addition to the chairperson’s pay of $440 per month. It also allows for the chair to be paid for all meetings attended. The vice chair may also be paid for attending committee meetings for which the individual is not a member, but it must be done at the request of the chairperson or in the chair’s absence. The changes will take effect after the November election when board members are sworn into office. Discussion about the topic

roused members of the board earlier in the meeting when board member Jeff Ferguson questioned some pay vouchers submitted by the chairperson and vice chairperson under the previous resolution’s language. Ferguson said the Republican members of the board were chastised for requesting pay vouchers for attending a court hearing in January when State’s Attorney Ben Goetten filed a temporary restraining order against the full county board. After it was mentioned during a meeting in open session that the members requested pay, Ferguson said he and other Republicans voided their vouchers. The Republicans weren’t the only ones receiving inappropriate pay, he added. “I asked for [Chairperson Jerry Wittman’s] pay vouchers and also Vice Chair Pam Heitzig,” Ferguson said. “I observed that (See, turmoil, a2)

By BOB CROSSEN Jersey County Journal Nearly a month after the city council condemned six city properties in Jerseyville, many of the owners have purchased demolition permits to tear down the neglected structures. City Building Inspector Jeff Soer brought six properties to the attention of the city council during a regular meeting April 15, when there was unanimous approval to condemn each vacant building. The 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. Soer said he’s been in contact with the property owners for each lot, noting the East Prairie Street location has received the most attention in terms of demolition. The sides of the trailer have been stripped off the one-by-one and two-by-two supports holding up the walls and the roof. Water damage leading to rotten wood flooring was apparent from a distance after the siding had been stripped away. “Water has gotten down there and there are several sections that are rotted out that the metal

is covering up,” Soer said. “That’s structurally not sound. …These trailers – I don’t know what model it was – they’ve exceeded their life expectancy.” Many of the other properties have similar structural issues of collapsed roofs or shabby floor boards, making them unsafe for residential living. The condemnation notifications sent to the owners for some have been redirected to tax buyers who obtained the property deeds after paying three years of delinquent taxes. One such property is located at 804 Stryker St., where the grass has grown to nearly a foot tall in places. Ivy stretches from the foundation in the back corner over a window to the roof that has buckled from regular wear and tear. The back door laid on the concrete stoop behind the house. “It looks good from the front, but you go around to the back and that’s where it’s worse,” Soer said. “It’s all sagging. …. And then if you look at the back, the door is wide open.” He said the city cuts the grass and places a lien on the property if the land owner does not do so within a timely manner.

(Continued from A1) The mayor said American Heartland Fish Products is also in touch with experts from Auburn University in Alabama in an effort to calibrate the machine and eliminate the current odor. “They’re guaranteeing them that there is a solution to this and it will come rather quickly,” Thompson said. “It will take some time — not months, but probably a week or maybe two — to get all the settings correct for the processing. I would only ask for a limited amount of time and patience for them to get the issue corrected in terms of calibrating the machine and getting the temperature set and they feel very confident that this issue will be taken care of.” Thompson explained that when the plant first began processing Asian Carp, the temperature at which its machine operated was roughly 200 degrees hotter than needed. That heat burning the fish products is what has caused the smell from the plant. “If in the very near future this isn’t addressed, further steps will have to be taken,” he said. Those steps could eventually include legal action. “If this stands to be a nuisance, the city could take actions to try to deal

with the nuisance,” City Attorney Jim Schrempf said. In other new business, the council: n Approved a payment of $12,000 to the Grafton Chamber of Commerce to cover roughly half the cost of the chamber’s upcoming television and radio advertisement campaigns, which will promote the city’s upcoming summer events throughout the greater St. Louis area. n Heard a presentation from Patty O’Hair regarding the creation of new maps showing business and lodging locations in Grafton that will be made available at the city’s visitor’s center. n Approved the creation of a new part-time position at the visitor’s center. The employee will work 18 hours per week at a cost to the city of $8,350 and be in charge of coordinating the center’s volunteers. n Approved a contract between the city and Central States Fireworks to produce a fireworks presentation July 5 in Grafton at a cost of $7,000. n Approved waiving a permit fee for the American Diabetes Association to use Grove Memorial Park as a rest station for its Tour de Force event May 31. n Approved the minutes of its previous meeting and the treasurer’s report.

notice of troubled properties throughout the city. Since the council condemned the initial six properties in April, Soer said he’s received a slew of calls about other run-down properties in the city, many of which were already on his list of properties for potential condemnation. After a building is condemned, the property owner has 15 days to provide to the building inspector a plan for demolition or rehabilitation of the property. If such an effort is not made, Soer said the city may request authority from the judge to demolish the property and place a lien on it for the cost of the demolition. If the process ever comes to a point where the city will be in charge of the demolitions, Soer said it is likely the council would contract the work through a bidding process because it doesn’t have the machinery to safely demolish the structures. As word spread about the city working toward condemnation of buildings, Soer said many property owners who knew their buildings were not up to code quickly demolished the buildings to prevent any legal recourse. The removal of dilapidated structures from an area can improve its worth aesthetically and financially, he added. Neighboring homes see increases in value after shoddy ones next door are torn down, making the area more visually appealing. And as calls continue to come in with complaints about some properties in the city, the building inspector said he will continue to bring structures to the attention of the city council for a vote on condemnation.

Her mother who was a teacher, husband who is an administrator at Southwestern, coworkers at JCUSD, as well as specific former colleagues – from Blackburn College, SIUE, and Carrollton where she has taught in the past – have all made an impact. “It’s the people in my life who have been truly influential. I think I strive to be like them,” she said. “You don’t realize how much someone impacts you until you look to your past and realize, ‘Wow, I wanted to be like her.’” Not only will the advanced degree allow Hopkins the opportunity to do more with District 100, but it lays the ground for future endeavors, as well. “I think there will come a time when I want to go back to post-secondary and teach again, and be around professionals who are interested in becoming educators or administrators themselves,” she said.

Properties

(Continued from A1) Jeff Wilson placed stakes into approximately 50 properties throughout the town, notifying that grass must be mowed on those properties, some of which are vacant. Soer said the lot locations on Stryker would be ideal for new developments, which is the ultimate goal of the condemnation process. “You’re limited in the town of available lots other than going to a new subdivision,” Soer said. “These will open up some other lots. … Those two over on Stryker, those are two good lots and I’ve already had a couple of the neighbors be interested in building a spec house there.” Those location aren’t the only ones that could see new developments. In fact, there are many tracts throughout the city that have been torn down for new construction or have been rehabilitated from unlivable conditions to sturdy, clean homes. For each neglected property there is another receiving needed attention. One of the most notable demolition jobs is located at the corner of Jefferson and Exchange streets, where there was once an administrative building. After being torn down, a neighboring property owner purchased the land with the intent to construct a duplex on the lot, Soer said. Pride is the motivating factor in keeping properties clean, up-to-date and habitable, he added. When property owners take pleasure in keeping their homes in good shape, they seek to make their neighborhood a better place. Good things happen to a neighborhood with that attitude.

later, however, she learned she would be the next superintendent at JCUSD and her topic changed to strategies for improving district culture. The most significant lessons Hopkins took from her research are: people are any organization’s most important asset, collaboration with colleagues and other professionals in the field is essential, and there will always be changes and challenges that must be faced with a positive attitude. Working on her own education nights and weekends, Hopkins said she has not had much free time during the past two years. “My family really sacrificed,” she said. “I never spent any time at work on this, except for conducting the research, journaling about office culture and that kind of stuff.” She said she will now be available to be more involved in some of the things she has missed out on while working toward the doctorate. “I have felt guilty that I have not made it to the number of activities, banquets or ballgames,” she said. “I feel like now having completed this goal, now I can participate in more Jersey 100 functions, so I’m excited about that.” Hopkins received her doctorates diploma during a hooding ceremony Saturday at SIUE.

In a letter dated May 8, 2014, Jersey County Circuit Court Judge Eric Pistorius said the change was made years ago when Judge Thomas Russell held the bench in Jersey County. In a case in the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, jurisdiction of which covers Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana, the court decided in 1995 an Illinois statute closing schools on Good Friday was in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the United States, Pistorius wrote. “In light of the aforementioned, any attempt to change the holiday name back to ‘Good Friday’ may be found in violation of above referenced clause and case and therefore I will not make any such changes irrespective of any action taken by the county board on this resolution,” Pistorius wrote in his May 8 letter to Wittman. Board member Jeff Ferguson said the county employees are given a paid holiday on Christmas and it is designated as such, noting he sees no issue in changing the name of the day to reflect its religious implications. Houseman said in his research of the issue he found no other counties call it Citizenship Day, but rather refer to it as Good Friday or Spring Break. The change would not remove the day as a paid holiday for employees, he said, rather just change its designated name on the calendar. Board member Roger Newberry questioned the reasoning as to why the county may not refer to the day as Good Friday. “How can we as a Christian nation, as a county of church-going people,

He said according to the language set

“Don’t you have some hamburgers to flip?” board member John Houseman said to Jeff Heitzig. forth in the board member pay resolution, Wittman and Pam Heitzig were not entitled to pay for some of the meetings they attended. He requested the two repay the county for what they received inappropriately. Wittman said he would not repay what he had a right to receive pay for, noting he could also receive an additional $110 stipend each month for his term but has refused that payment. “The county board chairman has always been paid for every board meeting they go to,” Wittman said. “I think it’s highly advantageous for the county board chairman to go to every meeting to stay on top of it.” Ferguson said he was not accusing Wittman of cheating the county out of money, but rather the issue is an honest mistake based on the wording of the resolution explaining board member pay. Ferguson said board member Rhonda Linders also attended the TIF meeting and did not get paid for her attendance at that meeting. She said she was told she could not be paid for her attendance, and noted Wittman was late to the meeting and still received pay. Board member Gary Hayes said Linders has been late to committee meetings of which she is a member – sometimes showing up when the

The board tabled the issue until the regular meeting in June, pending further investigation by Judge Pistorius about the legal implications of the name change. The board requested Houseman submit his research, as well. In other business, the board: n Approved resolutions to award 2014 motor fuel tax maintenance materials for the county and townships. n Approved petitions for aid from Fidelity Township to repair a pipe culvert for $2,500; English Township for a box culvert valued at $10,000; Ruyle Township for pipe culverts in the amount of $4,000; and Rosedale Township for a box culvert amounting to $15,000. n Approved tourism grants to Hamilton Primary School Festival for $2,500; Jersey County Historical Society Apple Festival for $1,500; and the Jersey County Fair Board for $9,000. n Announced weekend recycling hours on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. as well as an E-recycling event May 17 in Jerseyville. n Approved increasing pay to Jesse Shain, recycling center employee, to $10 per hour. n Approved a resolution establishing the compensation of county officials and a resolution establishing the compensation of county board members, the chairperson of the board and vice chairperson of the board. n Approved the minutes of the previous meeting, approved committee meeting minutes and approved the bills.

Pam Hetizig said Ferguson has called more than 10 committee meetings in the past year, costing the county between $200 and $300 for each meeting. “Most of these meetings – in fact, I’d say all of them – have been over an issue where you’re trying to catch

The people on this board are good people. I don’t think we need to be publicly humiliated or accused of anything.” Jeff Hetizig, operator of The 518 observing the meeting with other members of the public, requested the board move on to another topic, stating he would give the board $100 to do so. “Don’t you have some hamburgers to flip?” board member John Houseman said to Jeff Heitzig. “Don’t you have some teeth to dig [with] what few patients you have left, John?” Jeff Heitzig replied. The county board approved rules for the public and board members during its regular meeting in February which state the public and board members may only interact through the chairperson of the board or during public comment. The rules also state all comments must be made in a civil and appropriate manner. The board took no action requesting Wittman or Pam Heitzig pay back vouchers for which Ferguson said they were ineligible to receive pay.

JERSEY'S

PROM ROYALTY

Aaron Helfer and Samantha Critchfield were crowned this year's king and queen during Saturday's prom at Jersey Community High School.

Two JCHS students graduate with perfect attendance By RoBeRt LyonS Jersey County Journal Two students graduating from Jersey Community High School on Saturday have achieved something none of their other classmates did. Dustin Walker and Alex Croxford both went all the way through elementary, middle and high school without missing even one day of classes. But, it wasn’t always easy making it to school every day, on time, according to Croxford. He said just last week, as he was closing in on his record achievement, his alarm clock went off after he would have normally already left for school. Then he encountered slow moving farm vehicles as he rushed to make it to JCHS from Dow. He arrived on time for his 7:25 a.m. early bird class, but just barely. “It really wasn’t that easy,” Croxford said of getting perfect attendance. Another time, his car began overheating on the way to school and began smoking. He called his mother, who rushed him to school to arrive just before the bell. “Somehow, thanks to God, I made it to school on time that day,” he said. “Otherwise, I would have been absent from my early bird class that day.” Walker said he’s had to battle through minor ailments on school days, such as headaches. But, nothing was too severe to call off. “I’ve gotten lucky and every time I’ve seriously been sick, it’s been on the weekends or during the summer,” Walker said. “I’ve had chicken pox and pneumonia in the summer.” Croxford said he’s always been health conscious, which he said likely helped in his pursuit of perfect attendance. “I try to eat healthy and I take some vitamins, like vitamin C, to help keep myself from getting sick throughout the school year.” he said. “I wanted to be at school and not miss anything, because that’s where all my friends were.” Having braces, Croxford had many orthodontist and dentist appointments, and his mother sched-

uled all appointments around his school schedule. He even had his braces put in on a Monday after Easter, as it was the only day he did not have school that his orthodontist was available. Still, as he neared the end of his eighth grade year at St. Francis/Holy Ghost, Croxford felt worse than he ever had before. But, with the help of his mother coming to the school to give him medicine, he made it through the day. Their initial motivation for never missing a day is unique to each student, but they share their reason for wanting to keep it going. “Whenever I was little, I saw somebody do it on TV and I thought that was really cool,” Walker said, adding that he professed to his mother at that point he would never miss school. Croxford said he didn’t realize early on that he had perfect attendance. “But after I had a record going through like third grade, it was really important to not miss anything,” he said. When he began driving himself to school, Croxford said he became more concerned with making it on time – especially after he had experienced car trouble. As a cross country runner, he said once he made it into town he would start calculating how long it would take him to run to school from any given point. The dedication of Walker and Croxford to make it to school every single day is rare. “I’ve been here for six years and this is the first time it’s ever happened,” JCHS attendance secretary Amber Isringhausen said, adding she’s never had one class with a student with perfect attendance, let alone two. The two students were honored with plaques during Tuesday night’s honors banquet at JCHS. On Sunday, they will receive further recognition. Walker plans to attend Southern Illinois University Carbondale and pursue a degree in architecture. Croxford will attend Yale University and study electrical engineering and computer science.

Joann Kuebrich sits with her assistance dog in training, Linda. Kuebrich has raised nine puppies for the assistance dog program through Cannine Companions for Independence, a national non-profit that breeds and raises the dogs for those in need throughout the country.

Local woman raises puppies for those in need By BoB Crossen Jersey County Journal A Jerseyville woman has spent a decade training puppies as assistance dogs for people throughout the country. Joann Kuebrich is a puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), a non-profit agency that breeds dogs to be used as assistance animals throughout the nation. The organization breeds golden retrievers, labrador retrievers and mixes of the two, and when the puppies hit eight weeks in age, they are sent to trainers like Kuebrich. “There isn’t any way you can raise one of these dogs for a year without becoming attached to them,” Kuebrich said. Kuebrich went through an extensive application process before she was even considered as a possible host home for the canines in training. She had to apply with the organization, including any previous experience training dogs or other animals before she was sent a more detailed application form. And even after completing that form, she had to go through an interview process, and her application had to be approved by a board of review before the first puppy could even arrive at her doorstep. The effort was worth it, however, as Kuebrich has now raised nine dogs through the organization that have gone on to aid those in need throughout the country. The dogs are given to handicapped individuals, those with trouble hearing, and even some are issued to wounded soldiers returning from tours of duty. She said a family member of hers is blind, and the concept of training guidance dogs had always been an interest. It was for this reason that Kuebrich pursued training dogs for other people. “At one time I had considered wanting to get into training guide dogs,” Kuebrich said. “I had thought about that when I was still in school, but the opportunity never came about where I was in a position where I was able to get involved in something like that.” Though the stars never aligned with guide dog training, while attending dog training classes she met another person in the class who was a part of the CCI puppy training program. Her interest was rekindled because the dogs help more than just those without sight. Kuebrich’s goal with the puppies she is tasked with raising is to train them for social situations and how to remain obedient to their owners’ commands, although she does have to teach each puppy a variety of specific commands, as well. She said she takes the dogs to restaurants or other social experiences as part of the training. “You start training these puppies when they’re born. You never stop training them. All day long you have the dog with you,” Kuebrich said, noting the dogs do have play time and down time, as well. “I’ve taken them to club meetings, social gatherings, take them to family or friends’ homes. We may go out to eat and take the dog with us.” After she has socialized the dogs and taught them

Jerseyville, Illinois

By roBert Lyons Jersey County Journal Jerseyville Police Department’s fleet of vehicles is being updated. During Tuesday night’s city council meeting, the purchase of three squad cars was approved. The new units will be either 2014 or 2015 Ford Interceptors, and are estimated to cost around $24,000 each. The department plans to replace two – a 2002 and a 2004 – squad cars that are currently in service. Chief Brad Blackorby said the DARE truck driven by Sgt. Scott Woelfel is going to be garaged to protect its decorative wrap from the weather, so a third vehicle is needed. The chief said the purchases will be split over two years, to avoid having a large expense all at once. The all-wheel drive, six-cylinder sedans will be purchased from Morrow Bros., in Greenfield. “If he has the ‘14s, we’re going to take them. But, if he doesn’t, he’s going to give us ‘15s – they’ll be available this summer – at the same price,” Blackorby said. “So, we’re still waiting to see what we’re going to get.” Though the vehicle has two fewer cylinders than the former Crown Victoria models, the new Interceptor model's V-6 engine produces 55

horsepower more than the Crown Victoria’s V-8. Blackorby said he’s pleased with how well the older squad cars have performed, but several are getting to the point where major repairs will be too costly to certain cars in service. “We need to keep rotating every couple of years to get built back up,” he said. In 2004, the city went from sharing squad cars among the officers to purchasing a fleet to give each of the officers their own vehicle. Blackorby said the plan was to make the cars last longer. “Prior to doing the fleet vehicles, we were out of warranty on a car within a year, it was over 50,000 miles because everybody was sharing cars,” he said. Mayor Richard Perdun said the fleet program has worked better than expected. “I think the original plan was to try to make them last six years, maybe seven,” Perdun said. “We’re getting 10 years and 12 years out of them, so it’s working out.” Also at Tuesday night’s meeting, councilman Billy Russell reminded residents of the water problems that come with spring rains. “For those people that have the backflow preventers in their sewers, make sure you check those out so

they’re working properly,” Russell said, noting the backflow preventer screen just needs to be pulled out and cleaned to return the unit to full functionality. City Engineer Bob Kincade said city employees worked with several residents when backflow preventers were initially installed a few years back to demonstrate proper maintenance. Russell also said the city has been working on replacing and repairing sewer lines, but said residents should report any standing water issues. “If anyone in the community notices areas in their neighborhood where there’s huge volumes of water…give us a call,” Russell said. In other business, the council: n Approved the minutes of the previous regular meeting and the May 6 special meeting. n Approved payment of the bills. n Approved the two-year appointment of Mary Heitzig as chairman of the TIF advisory board. n Approved the treasurer’s annual report on the police and fire departments’ pension funds. n Kincade announced the city cleaned the well water pumping line and the flow has been increased to full capacity to the water plant.

basic obedience during the course of the dog’s first year of life, she takes the animal back to the organization where it begins its advanced training to specialize in helping somebody with a specific disability. The advanced training generally lasts another six months and their respective owners end up receiving the dog when it is approximately 2 years old. Kuebrich said returning the dogs is always a hard moment because she has cared for it every waking moment since it was eight weeks old. The dogs love the trainers unconditionally, she added. One of her most memorable moments was returning a dog to CCI when another of its same litter arrived. The two greeted each other and snuggled, understanding they were siblings, she said. Between that moment and understanding the dogs will be used to better the lives other others throughout

“At one time I had considered wanting to get into training guide dogs. I had thought about that when I was still in school, but the opportunity never came about where I was in a position where I was able to get involved in something like that.”

Joann Kuebrich Jerseyville the country, she said giving the dogs up has become easier over time. “I’ve always kind of looked at it like sending your kid to college,” Kuebrich said. “They’re going out. They’re going to school. They’re developing their own career. … It’s difficult to give them up, but then when you see the person that gets them and you see what they do for a person, it’s– How could you not give the dog up?” She said said getting businesses to accept the dogs in their doors can be difficult at times, and she tries to raise awareness about the dogs’ importance in going into businesses as part of their early life training. Additionally, those who want to pet one of the assistance dogs are requested to ask before doing so, she added. The dogs are trained to keep all four paws on the ground – whether sitting or standing up – and sometimes the excitement of a happy person can interfere with the regimen. For more information about assistance dogs or CCI, visit cci.org. Those interested in becoming a puppy trainer for the organization can apply through the website, as well. Kuebrich said those who are interested can also contact her about how to get involved and what the experience is like. Her home phone number is 618-498-3678.

Climate of corruption The Issue: Illinois’ identity tied to scandalous politicians Our View: Time for a new image

Publisher and Editor: Julie Boren

T

aking a long, hard look in the mirror can be uncomfortable. But that’s what Illinoisans must do.

With the circus years of the Gov. Rod Blagojevich administration behind us, many Illinois residents breathed a sign of relief. Not so fast. It seems that a pervasive culture of corruption is making itself known across the country. In a column printed on this page, James D. Nowlan and J. Thomas Johnson report on a 2012 national survey that found one in three respondents named Illinois as one of the most corrupt states in the nation. Combine this with another recent survey that finds more Illinoisans want to move out of their state than any other state residents in the nation and you have a recipe for poor selfimage. Think of it as going from a few regrettable pimples in the Chicago and Springfield areas to an angry red rash covering the state. Perhaps Illinoisan are tough enough and independent enough to shrug off what others around the nation think of us. But a “what do I care” attitude does not help when corrupt politics impacts our business climate. Who could blame a corporation for counting the cost of doing business in a corrupt state? When a business chooses not to bring jobs to Illinois, this unfavorable image could well be part of the problem. Nowlan and Johnson suggest such remedies as ethics workshops and an ethics module in social science classes. It’s a start. Here in Jersey County, we can assist by doing our homework in advance of every vote we cast and asking “Does this candidate help or hurt Illinois’ image of corruption?” Even the longest journey begins with a single step. It is vital that Illinois root out the systemic disease of corruption and present a clean and shining face to the nation.

Corruption an enduring habit in Illinois S

ince our founding as a state, corruption in Illinois has been so commonplace that it is called “The Illinois Way” of doing government business. Our state’s reputation has been sullied and our economy harmed. It is not a matter to be passed off with a rueful chuckle. Early Illinois governor Ninian Edwards (1826-30) decried the common practice in his time of treating citizens with whisky to win their votes. Those who do so, Edwards declared, “establish a school of vice and depravity in our country tending to contaminate not only the present but succeeding generations.” By the 1890s, Illinois had become so corrupt that honesty appeared eccentric. Streetcar magnate Charles T. Yerkes scandalized the state when he used big bribes to buy off both the Chicago city council and the state legislature in efforts to extend his traction franchises. In 1909, supporters of Congressman William J. Lorimer created a national sensation when they paid $100,000 in bribes of $2,500 to as many as 40 state lawmakers in Springfield to elect Lorimer to the U.S. Senate. At the time, the new Model T Ford cost $850. Corruption during the Al Capone era of the 1920s was breathtaking in its magnitude. The chief of police in Chicago admitted that half his force of 6,000 cops was not only soliciting bribes but also actively pushing alcohol. The most distressing examples of public corruption came to light more recently, in the 1980-90s, as a result of Operations Greylord and Gambit, federal investigations into the Cook County court system. More than 120 court officials, including 18 judges, were convicted of systematic bribery to dismiss cases against even murderers and hit men. Between 1976 and the present, 1,828 persons in Illinois have been convicted of public corruption, more than in any states but New York and California. And that represents only the illegal corruption. There have been too many cases of state legislators padding, even doubling, their pensions in return for just a month’s work in government after retirement from the General

Assembly. Legal yet repre- Guest Column hensible. BY JAMES D. Illinois consistently ranks among the states perNOWLAND AND J. ceived to be most corrupt. In 2012, we took a national THOMAS JOHNSON survey and found that one in three respondents named Illinois, unprompted, as one of the most corrupt states in the nation. Other Midwestern states were rarely so named, causing Illinois to stick out. And perceptions hurt. A survey we conducted of 70 economic development professionals in Illinois found that three in four of them believed that perceptions of corruption had a negative impact on their business and job recruiting. We believe that over the centuries a culture of corruption had developed insidiously among too many Illinois residents. Taking advantage of government is seen as the way things are done. Culture can be changed. Take for examples smoking and drinking and driving. Both were somewhat cool when we were young, but now are frowned upon by society. We propose that the state of Illinois embark on a permanent campaign to make corruption uncool. Governors would take the lead. Consciousness-raising about integrity would take many forms, including: Workshops on ethics would be held for all newly elected local and state officials. Increased discussion of ethics in social science classes in our schools, and Guides to ethical decision-making would be distributed widely among the public. Illinois must begin now to transform The Illinois Way into a model of integrity in government. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Nowlan and Johnson are past presidents of the Taxpayers’ Federation of Illinois, a business group.

Great loss H

ow do you mourn a loss? Especially someone you love to the moon and back? How do you cope with not seeing them every day or hearing their familiar voice? Mourning a sudden death is not easy and there are no “how to” instructions to learn by. There has been a gremlin on the biker community’s back lately. Within the past two weeks there have been more biker funerals and biker injuries from accidents than I want to hear about. It’s growing thin on many families and their extended families. It’s time to cease. Do we idly sit and let the tears flow until our eyes are swollen shut, or do we become more aware of our emotions? Helping these loved ones cope with the crazy roller coaster of feelings. I am growing weary of these funerals because it’s draining me. I honestly can say it’s taking a toll on my health and literally makes me sick. I believe there are several people out there that are like me that cannot handle emotions well. Of

course, we all prefer smiles and happiness, but when it comes to crying, that is an emotion that is hard for me to deal with. I don’t even like it if a small child cries, and when I hear that whimper I buy them anything they want just to make them laugh again. I cannot even handle when a best friend is sad from a bad day and not smiling. I know life is not easy here but I would like to make this life I have a better place for myself and everyone else involved with me. There needs to be more love than hate. It’s too easy to hate, so that’s a cop out and I don’t accept it. My father once told me that I cannot be happy all the time, yet, I can have a positive outlook. If you are a close family member of mine or a true friend that has accepted me wholeheartedly into your life then you know how I want you to mourn my loss one day. I know most will not agree, but I must share after the biker funerals I have been to recently that have been so sad, very painful, and hard to deal

with. I choose to have a celebration of my life that I have lived, and no, not a typical funeral at a funeral home. Guest There will be Column a huge party BY and no display LORI DUNSE of my body to be shown to bring down the mood. Only pictures and slides of the festive life that I have enjoyed with the people I loved. Hoping to give back to them cherished moments that I relished with them and to show how much they meant to me. Dancing will be permitted as the music blares and the champagne will be flowing from the fountains. No tissues will be handed out, only shot glasses or a cold beer to ease your blues. The only thing I ask is that you smile. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Lori Dunse is a guest colum-

Belgian band releases song about Brussels

By RoBeRt Lyons Jersey County Journal A band from Brussels, Belgium recently released a new song about Brussels, Ill. Saint-Gillbillies just released the album “Sittin’ Pretty,” the third track of which is titled “Brussels 62013.” Songwriter and guitarist PM Doutreligne, aka Slick, said the song was created as a tonguein-cheek reference to a place that, for the band and its audience, only shares the name of their hometown. “We’re from Brussels, Belgium, right, but you have a song about another Brussels. So people who came to our shows in Brussels would go ‘Oh, here we go, they wrote a song about their main city, their hometown,’ which is highly unoriginal,” Slick said. “Only when the chorus kicks in, ‘He was the man from Brussels, 62013,’ they go ‘Ah.’” The album “Sittin’ Pretty” was completed less than a month ago, and Saint-Gillbillies has not played the song live, yet. He said the reception of its recorded version, however, has been very positive. The lead singer of SaintGillbillies, Matt Graves, is from Texas, but no members of the rockabilly band from Europe have any relationship with the small Calhoun village. Slick said all of his knowledge of Brussels, Ill., came from the Internet. “We Googled it, it’s as simple as that. It’s the least romantic answer there is,” he said, noting he also discovered there is a Brussels in Wisconsin. “We chose the one in Illinois because the way the 62013 sounds in a sentence. We do not have any connection with Illinois, we’re from Brussels, it’s as simple as that.” The band created a video for “Brussels 62013” with pictures found from with web, featuring photos of ferries, buildings and land-

scapes from Calhoun County. “The opening line of the song mentions the Red and White General Store. What started off as a jokey thing became kind of a history lesson, if you like,” Slick said, pointing out his awareness of ferries’ extended closures during this past winter. Though he has visited the U.S. several times, Slick is European through and through – a native French speaker who spent several years in England, polishing his English-speaking ability. The band’s singer, Graves, is originally from rockabilly hub Austin, Texas, giving the group a heavy dose of Americana

authenticity. “It just so happens that we’re all into the same type of music,” Slick said. The name Saint-Gillbillies is a play on words, taking the SaintGilles municipality in the Brussels area and combining it with hillbillies. Slick said there are not actually any hillbillies in Europe. The six-member band plays a mixture of originals and covers, with an emphasis on their own songs. “Sittin’ Pretty” contains just two covers – including a rockabilly version of Grandmaster Flash’s “The Message” – and the rest are origi-

nals. The band’s bio describes its sound as combining rockabilly, country-western and surf. Slick said Saint-Gillbillies would love the opportunity to play in front of a U.S. crowd. “If someone is prepared to find us a gig over there, we’d be happy to fly out,” he said. “It’d be a dream for us. Imagine a band from Brussels, Belgium playing in Brussels, Illinois.” The band’s music, including the album “Sittin’ Pretty” can be found on iTunes. Saint-Gillbillies are also on Facebook and Twitter, as well as their own website stgb.be.

First LCCC dental student attending ADHA National Session Lewis and Clark Community College dental hygiene student Lauren Michelle Kelly, 23, of Brighton, is the first in the history of the program to be selected as a district student delegate to attend the American Dental Hygienists Association (ADHA) Annual Session. The Annual Session, a week of networking, advocacy, continuing education, fun and friendships, will be held June 18-24 in Las Vegas. “I was not expecting to be selected at all. The district covers five states, and considering how many other dental hygiene students applied, I considered my chances slim, but I thought it was a wonderful opportunity and certainly worth a try,” Kelly said. “When our district representative called, I was thrilled beyond words! It took a day or two to really sink in.” Jessica Upthagrove, of Hastings, Neb., is the student delegate for the district this year, while Kelly is the alternate, but both will be attending the event. “The American Dental Hygienists’ Association’s annual session is the yearly business meeting of our professional association. Delegates from each state and district meet to decide on how they will vote on issues that will be discussed on the house of delegates floor for the remainder of the conference,” said L&C Dental Hygiene Program Coordinator Michelle Singley. Leading up to the event, Kelly, who is currently president of the Lewis and Clark ADHA student club, will brush up on the latest in ADHA, so she can be prepared to share her educated opinions from a student standpoint.

“I have the privilege of adding my input to various student issues and giving my voice to issues currently affecting dental hygiene students and new graduates,” Kelly said. Kelly is looking forward to networking with other students and hygienists from across the country, taking part in exclusive events such as the new president luncheon, and visiting Las Vegas. “I hope to learn a lot about the past, present and future of dental hygiene. I absolutely love this field and I love the government and political aspect as well, so I hope to learn how I can play a role in the ADHA when I become a registered dental hygienist,” Kelly said. LCCC’s dental hygiene students, including Kelly, are preparing for their board exams and graduation in December 2014. Kelly finished the college’s Dental Assisting program in 2013 and after graduation took the Dental Assisting National Board exam to become a Certified Dental Assistant. “Lauren is a very driven student, strongly focused on her education and being very successful with her didactic and clinical curriculum,” Singley said. “Her leadership skills shine when it comes to organizing tasks and events for her fellow students. This is a great opportunity for her to experience how her professional organization and the leadership of that organization works for her and all of its members. For the program, it means that we can continue to be a part of the representation of quality dental hygiene students at the national level.”

Phillip Franke Phillip Charles Franke, 77, of Jerseyville, died peacefully Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013 at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Phillip was born Feb. 25, 1936 in Batchtown to Otto F. Franke and Geneva (Presley) Franke. On July 10, 1955, he married Jane Rosa. He went to work for Eastern Airlines in St. Louis and before retiring. He was manager of Eastern Airlines’ operations in Okalahoma City and Kansas City. While in Oklahoma, he was Chief Barker for Variety Clubs of Oklahoma, served on the Board of Directors for the Oklahoma March of Dimes, and was a member of the Oklahoma City Board of Directors. Phil is survived by his daughter, Carol Franke Knox and her husband, Thomas Knox of Chelsea, Mich.; a son, Steve Franke and his wife, Angelia, of Nowata, Okla.; grandchildren, Melissa Knox, John Franke and Meredith Franke; a sister-in-law, Ruth Rosa Terry; a brother-in-law, Donald Terry; and nephews, Rich Terry and wife, Eloise, David Terry and wife, Karen, and Michael Terry. He is preceded in death by his parents, and a beloved grandson, Andrew Knox who continues to inspire his family with his humor and courage. Phil never met a stranger, and was willing to give of himself to make someone else’s life better, and was fiercely loyal to family. He also loved being around children, because, as he put it, “they’re funnier than adults.” Phil’s generous spirit continues to touch lives. It was his desire that when he passed on, he’d donate his body to the Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, to help improve the lives of others. We honor and respect his wishes. Phil loved the St. Louis Cardinals, Oklahoma State Cowboys and the St. Louis Blues. He also loved a good pun. That being said, on the night he passed away, Phil would’ve been happy to know the Blues won. The hockey team, that is. Not the emotion.

There will also be a Celebration of Life for Phil on Sunday, May 25 at Westlake Country Club in Jerseyville from 1 to 3 p.m. Memorials may be given in his honor to the Jerseyville Public Library.

Smay awarded certificate of achievement May 10

Eight-year-old Cade Smay of Wood River was awarded a certificate of achievement from the Madison County Regional Superintendent, Dr. Robert Daiber, on Saturday, May 10 in recognition of his story for the Illinois State Sponsored 2014 Young Authors Competition. Each year, students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade are encouraged to write, illustrate and submit an original book, which are judged in their local respective schools. The County Level winners from each school are invited to attend the Madison County Young Authors Conference in Edwardsville hosted by the Madison County Regional Office of Education. Cade’s book was one of seven total winning county level submissions from Central Elementary this year. During the conference, students had the opportunity to share their books, participate in literacy based activities and listen to accomplished award winning Children’s Author Jennifer Ward speak about the importance of writing. Students are also presented with a certificate by the Regional Superintendent of Education. This is Cade’s second time achieving this honor as a county representative; the first time was while he was in kindergarten at just six years old. His story for this winning submission is titled “The Bulldog and the Eagle.” It is a story about the two Roxana Elementary Schools mascots and his imaginative backstory involving a fire and these two brave animals saving children, explaining how they came to be deemed official mascots.

Cade Smay Cade loves to read, write and create; when he grows up, Cade wants to be a video game designer and own a DeLorean. He is the son of Nathan and Christy Smay of Wood River and is a second grade student at Central Elementary School in Roxana. He has a four-year-old brother, Leyton (who he has inspired to create his own picture books) and a 1-year-old brother, Lairn, to whom he enjoys reading stories. His grandparents are Martin and Melissa Smay of Kane, Deb and Dave Droege of Jerseyville, and the late Kevin Hatcher, formerly of Hardin. His surviving great-grandparents are Leslie H.

Card of thanks Thank You Teachers are a treasure and JCHS will be losing one of the best. Erica Smith is a wonderful teacher and those kids as well as the school are gong to miss her so much. I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank Erica for being so kind and inviting me back to her classroom to demonstrate pie making. I loved all of the kids and especially their questions. I had a lot of eager helpers that loved to roll the pie crust and enjoyed taste testing. I had such a fun time with the students and Erica made me feel so welcome. I won’t ever forget it. Erica, I would like to wish you luck and much success in your next journey wherever it leads. I know you will succeed. Franny Fosha

T

his grilling season, choose lean, tender lamb as the centerpiece for your summer entertaining menu. Once served only for Easter, there’s no reason why lamb can’t be enjoyed all year long. Just as turkey has moved beyond Thanksgiving to become everyday fare, the same is true with lamb meat — it’s readily available for all seasons and easy to prepare, allowing for lamb kabobs, burgers, thinly sliced leg of lamb and chops to be a delicious addition to your grilling occasions.

Myths behind the meat

“In my career as a cookbook author and cooking instructor, I have never seen a more misunderstood ingredient than lamb,” said Amy Riolo, award-winning author, chef, television personality and culinary educator. “While prized in most other places in the world, lamb remains a mystery to most Americans.” If you haven’t tried lamb in a while, you may be surprised by this flavorful protein. While often confused for mutton, the tougher meat of older lamb, young lamb is tender. Others may shy away from this choice protein, believing it has a gamey taste. But modern lamb is raised differently than in the past, resulting in a sweeter, succulent taste. Can lamb fit into a healthy diet? Sure! This rich-tasting meat contains, on average, 175 calories per 3-ounce serving. Lastly, people assume it’s expensive; but value cuts, such as the shoulder, leg and ground lamb can fit into any grocery budget.

A better-for-you selection

Serve up lean lamb cuts — including the leg, loin and rack — for a protein- and nutrient-packed dish. In fact, on average, a 3-ounce serving delivers almost 50 percent of your daily protein needs and is a good source of iron. Also rich in zinc, selenium and vitamin B-12, a 3-ounce serving of lamb can provide nearly five times the amount of essential omega-3 fatty acids when compared to beef. Lamb is also raised without the addition of synthetic hormones.

Grill up goodness

Chef Amy Riolo provides these tips for serving up the most scrumptious, savory lamb right from your own grill.  In a hurry? Choose cubed leg of lamb for kabobs, rib chops or boneless butterflied leg of lamb — cuts which can be grilled in minutes.  Aromatics are lamb’s best friends. Onions, garlic, spices and lemon juice enhance the natural sweet flavor in lamb.  Grilling lamb with garlic, mint and olive oil is a great way to introduce lamb for first-timers. Cut slits into the lamb meat and insert pieces of garlic cloves, then rub with oil and dried mint.  Use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature. Lamb will continue cooking after you pull it off the grill, so it’s best to remove it about 10 degrees lower than your target temperature.  Lamb is best served medium rare (145°F) or medium (160°F). All ground lamb should be cooked to 160°F. For more lamb recipes and cooking tips, visit www.leanonlamb.com, www.pinterest.com/leanonlamb or on Twitter @leanonlamb.

GRAFTON

GETS NEW MAYOR

ON TEMPORARY BASIS

Grafton Mayor Tom Thompson looks over his notes with Mayor for the Day Owen Weber prior to the Grafton City Council meeting Tuesday at City Hall. Sporting a "Grafton Mayor for the Day" T-shirt, Weber called the meeting to order, led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance and received a certificate marking the occasion after having spent part of the day with Thompson learning about Grafton and its government.

Start seeing motorcycles The Illinois State Police (ISP) would like to remind the motoring public to start seeing motorcycles. With the warmer weather finally here the number of motorcycles on the roadways will rapidly increase. Last year Illinois State Police District 18 Troopers handled several crashes involving motorcycles. Four of those motorcycle crashes resulted in five fatalities. Over The last three years motorcycle fatalities have continued to rise statewide. Motorcycles are typically overlooked

by motorists because of their smaller size and other distractions from inside the car. However, not all motorcycle crashes are caused by other motorists. The following safety tips can help reduce the amount of crashes involving them. Those operating a motorcycle should remember to ride with caution. Assume that not every motorist will see you. Make sure you see them and you have escape routes in case evasive action is required. Ride with

your headlight on and never tailgate other vehicles, or ride in their blind spots. Always wear bright or reflective clothing especially at night. Intersections are common areas for motorcycle crashes. Use extreme caution when going through them. Do not take risks just because the motorcycle can accelerate faster than a car. Never weave in and out of traffic, attempt stunts while riding, or drink and drive. For more information visit http://www.startseeingmotorcycles.org/default.asp

JERSEY COUNTY JOURNAL

Jerseyville, Illinois

Farmers benefit from city’s lime disposal By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal Farmers in the Illinois River valley are enjoying the benefits of lime applications without having to pay the price. Calcium carbonate, lime, is a byproduct from the water treatment process used by the city of Jerseyville. City Engineer Bob Kincade said, though it may sound strange, the city uses lime to reduce the amount of lime in its water. “We feed a hydrated lime to our water, which raises the pH and causes everything to drop out, including the dissolved lime that’s in the water,” he said. “It causes it to fall out as calcium carbonate.” In a year’s time, the city produces up to 1.5 million gallons of calcium carbonate, which Kincade said is also referred to as lime sludge. The lime sludge is redissolved into water and is pumped into a tanker truck. It is then delivered to local farm fields and the liquid lime is spread by tractor. “It’s the same product, essentially, that farmers use for liming their soil to raise the pH in it. Farmers get the benefit of the lime already being dissolved and being ready to go into the ground,” Kincade said. “What it does is it allows for a somewhat instantaneous increase in their pH on their fields.” The city engineer said soil could go from a pH level of six to anywhere as high as eight with one application, depending on how much lime the farmer requests. Kincade said each year the city’s lime sludge treats between 600 and 800 acres of area farmland, and each

application is typically effective for six to eight years. One of the most attractive aspects for both the city of Jerseyville and the farmers receiving the lime is the cost savings, according to Kincade. He said one of the greatest expenses in the process is the fuel required to transport and spread the product. “It’s an advantage to us to do the disposal without having to dry it out, cake it and put in to a landfill,” he said. “We have not yet been able to get any farmers to participate in the costs. We’re hoping eventually they will.” In 2013, the city spread 1.1 million gallons over fields belonging to four different farmers over the course of nine days. The total cost was $45,589.64, which included employee wages, tractor rentals, trucking charges, lab testing fees and fuel costs. Since 2000, the city has spent just more than $500,000 by spreading it over fields. If the city had to dispose of the leftover calcium carbonate in a landfill, the cost would be much greater. Kincade said a piece of equipment costing more than $1 million would need to be purchased to remove the water from the sludge. Then the costs of caking it, hauling it away and landfill fees would have to be figured in. He said areas in Rosedale Township have received a bulk of the liquified calcium carbonate. Even though the region is known for being rich in limestone, Kincade said farm soil becomes depleted. “As you farm a field, you’re removing all these nutrients from it,” he said. “You’re changing the pH of the soil and if it drops too much it’s hard to support the plants.” The water department is explor-

ing another way to help area farmers, as well. The sludge byproduct of the wastewater treatment facility may soon find its way to farmers’ fields. Kincade said the city may be a few years away from being able to market the sludge removed at the wastewater plant. He said the product would be use as a nitrogen fertilizer.

“I think that day may be coming because it’s a cheaper source of nitrogen than having anhydrous put down,” Kincade said. “It’s a lot safer product. Our only problem is the amount we generate isn’t enough to take care of all the farmers in the area.”

Tips to get your family to eat healthier snacks Outdoor Enthusiasts: Tips for Gearing-Up

(StatePoint) With so much junk food available on store shelves these days, it’s important to take a step back from time-to-time and evaluate what you feed your family. Snack time in particular is when a lot great parents serve up some not-so-great offerings. Here are a few ways to make sure you’re providing your family with some crucial vitamins and minerals during snack time: Vitamin C Vitamin C is important for strengthening immunity. Whenever kids gather in large groups, such as in the classroom, at after-school, activities, or on the monkey bars, germs have a tendency to travel. But a regular dose of vitamin C can help keep kids cold and flu-free.

With that in mind, hydrate kids with orange juice or lemonade instead of soda. For snacks, try kiwi, citrus fruits and slices of bell pepper. Calcium It’s almost impossible to cut out all sweets and treats, particularly when kids are involved! So rather than saying “no” to something delicious, ensure the sweet treats you serve your family offer some nutritional benefit. For example, Snack Pack pudding cups contain as much calcium as an 8 ounce glass of milk (30 percent of your needed daily value) and are 60-120 calories per serving, which won’t break the calorie bank. With more than 20 flavors, including sugar-free and fat-free varieties, kids won`t get

bored, so it’s easy to keep lunch or snack time fresh. Protein Protein is tricky because there are so many foods that contain a good dosage of protein, but aren’t necessarily the most healthful options. Limit sources of protein that are high in saturated fats, which can raise cholesterol and contribute to obesity. Instead, opt for healthful snacks like unsalted nuts and seeds. A trail mix is a satisfying way to up your kids’ protein intake, and is a great on-the-go option. Ensuring kids’ snacks are nutritionally beneficial is a great first step you can take to ensure they’re getting the vitamins and nutrients they need each day.

(StatePoint) For outdoor enthusiasts, it’s always the right season to get outdoors. Whether you are mountain climbing, backpacking in the sun, or even headed to a snowy climate for some skiing, certain gear and tips can make it easier. Skin Protection For most outdoor adventures you won’t be decked out in a bathing suit, but your exposed skin can still get burned and permanently damaged. In fact, if you will be mountain climbing or simply enjoying nature in a hilly terrain, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays becomes more important at high altitudes. Be sure to pack a good quality sunscreen with a high SPF that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation and is water resistant. During breaks,

don’t forget to re-apply -- every two hours is a good guideline to follow. Durable Gear It’s always a good idea to outfit yourself with the proper gear, when selecting a watch you should opt for something sensible and functional. A water and low temperature-resistant watch that not only tells time, but monitors nature’s elements, can keep you informed with useful information. For example, the latest watch in the Pro Trek series, the PRW30001, uses atomic timekeeping technology and features Triple Sensor Technology, this means it has an altimeter, barometer and thermometer and a digital compass with bearing memory. And because it’s solar-powered, you can be eco-friendly on your

outdoor excursions. More information about durable, outdoor watches can be found at www.ProTrek.Casio.com. Temperature Control Being active in the outdoors means that you can quickly go from being hot to being cold. These temperature swings can make you uncomfortable. But the right clothes can do away with this concern. For your base layer, think moisture-wicking fabrics that are breathable. You may not be able to actually control the weather, but you can look into new gear designed to help you pretend that you can. From caps to adjustable foot warmers, you can stay cool -- or warm up -- as you go. Before heading outdoors, take the time to properly outfit yourself.

Exercise offers something for everyone By Carmen ensinger Jersey County Journal

They say variety is the spice of life and it’s certainly true in the fitness arena. No matter what the fitness level, there is an exercise program out there – it just has to be found. LAZ Fitness is just one of many different group exercise programs in the Greene County area focusing on cardio, strength and toning workouts. LAZ Fitness is owned and operated by husband and wife team Larry and Amy Lowis of Piasa. Together they hold three different classes each week on Monday and Wednesday in Carrollton. Both are AFAA certified in Group Fitness Exercise. Amy Lowis said she first became interested in fitness in 2009 when she began taking Zumba classes with a friend in Alton.

“After I started taking the classes I fell in love with it and wanted to venture out on my own,” she said. “My friend encouraged me so in 2010 I got my licensing for Zumba and then my husband joined me in teaching Zumba in 2011. I became certified to teach group fitness classes in January of 2012.” Though they live in Piasa, they hold their exercises classes at Boyd Hospital and coming June 18, they will be holding an aqua class at the Carrollton Pool. No longer associated with Zumba, they teach an hour long Z-Blast exercise class, which is a high intensity cardio class followed by a half-hour core class for strength training. “Z-Blast is a high intensity integral cardio class and it’s kind of like you do aerobics and all different sorts of things wrapped into a one hour session,” Lowis said. “The core exercises help

to build strength in all of the muscles of the mid-section of the body, including muscles in the upper legs and back as well as the stomach.” Last year was the first year she held the aqua fitness classes at the pool and they were so successful she is bringing them back again with a 45-minute class on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 7:45 p.m. “Aqua classes are lower impact exercises so if you have bad knees or joints or you just can’t handle the impact then these classes are for you,” Lowis said. “The water acts as the resistant so it is all toning. The water does the work for you.” The core classes feature kettle bells which Lowis describes as metal ball with a handle on it which is used for strength training. Lowis said the group fitness classes provide some with that

Tips to get fit this summer

extra motivation needed to stick with an exercise program. “There are some people who have to have a friend to go with them to enjoy it,” Lowis said. “But I think if you enjoy what you are doing you are going to stick with it whether you are in a group or do it as an individual.” The real key to success is finding a program you like and there are several in the area. “It’s great because everybody doesn’t like the same thing,” Lowis said. “Some people might prefer working out with weights while others prefer the programs more centered around dance and movement. Other people like the cross-fit classes which is really intense training. It’s just what you like and what you are comfortable with. The more fitness available, the better because people can always find something they like.” Lowis said her participants range in age from 16 all the way

Did you know? According to the National Sleep Foundation, a short nap of 20 to 30 minutes can improve alertness and performance without creating feelings of grogginess or interfering with nighttime sleep. A NASA study that examined sleepy pilots and astronauts found that those who napped for 40 minutes improved their performance by 34 percent. While napping can be beneficial, napping can have a negative impact as well. For example, those who nap too late in the day may struggle to get a decent night's rest later that night, when the length and quality of sleep may not be as long or as strong as it would had they not napped so late in the day. Men and women who find themselves suddenly need naps despite no obvious cause of fatigue should consult their physicians, as this might be indicative of a sleep disorder or another medical condition.

up to 82. “We have all fitness levels in our classes because we can modify the exercises,” she said. “The water class is very good for that because if someone has had surgery and they can’t really do a lot impact but they can still do the aqua classes. We have all different ages and we try to keep it interesting for everyone.” LAZ Fitness holds their Z-Blast

(StatePoint) Everybody wants to be in shape for bathing suit season, but all those fun seasonal activities -- from barbecues to vacations to baseball games -- can derail a diet. Here are some tips to help you get fit, so you can look and feel your best all summer: Vacations It’s tempting to leave healthy habits behind when heading out of town. But an off week can permanently wreck your diet. When possible, opt for active vacations, such as camping trips or touring a city by foot. If you’re planning a more sedentary getaway, stay somewhere with a fitness facility. Vacations can be rare, so don’t sacrifice all the treats of the trip. Prioritize meal-time indulgences so you can enjoy yourself mindfully. For travel days, pack healthful snacks such as fresh fruit, nuts and yogurt as alternatives to high-calorie airport or roadside food. Daily Diet It’s important to assess whether you’re eating the foods you need to get “fit,” versus foods that merely encourage weight loss, say experts. “Unfortunately, many fad diets can leave you feeling fatigued,

sluggish or undernourished,” says Andrew Eckhardt, Owner and Founder of ThinSlim Foods and a veteran diet food consumer. To eat right, don’t starve yourself. Stock up on fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy and lean meats. And just because you’re slimming down or maintaining your already svelte figure, doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your favorite foods or go carb-free. “Alternative foods can allow you to enjoy favorite options without expending your calorie budget in one meal,” says Eckhardt. Try replacing standard cake or wheat flours with healthy alternatives, like oat fiber and almond fiber. In one shot, you’ll cut calories and increase your protein and fiber intake. If regular baking is unrealistic, look for brands that replace low-quality inexpensive flours and sugar substitutes with good-for-you alternatives. For example, ThinSlim Foods, makes brownies, cookies, bagels, bread and even pizza using healthful ingredients like oat fiber, almond flour and the all-natural sweetener Erythritol. These low fat and low carb foods eliminate artificial flavors, pre-

servatives, high-fructose corn syrup and synthetic colors. They also have 50 to 70 percent less carbs and fat compared to other market options. The brand’s master bakers worked alongside nutritional experts to confirm that they are appropriate for gluten-free, hypoglycemia and other digestive and dietary sensitivities. More information about healthfully incorporating baked goods into your diet can be found at www.ThinSlimFoods.com. Exercise Summer is a great opportunity to start a fitness regimen that you can stick with all year. You should strive to get at least two and a half hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, preferably spread throughout the week, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, you should incorporate muscle-strengthening activities into your regimen to stay strong and improve your metabolism. A workout buddy can help you stay motivated. Wherever summer takes you, you can look and feel great, while enjoying all your favorite foods and activities.

BUSINESSES

Supporting local business supports whole community By ROBERT LYONS Jersey County Journal Many small communities, like those in Jersey County, were built on the foundation of a strong local economy. Providing the goods and services local residents need helps provide jobs and keeps sales tax money in the community, which enables the city and county to maintain its infrastructure. Local businesses perpetuate the strengthening of the community. “Most of them are owned by friends and neighbors,” Jersey County Business Association CEO Mary Heitzig said. The biggest challenge they have is competition in neighboring counties.” Heitzig said there is research underway to put a number on the “leakage” out of the community on retail sales, meaning the amount people are leaving Jersey County to spend their money elsewhere. “I think we’re going to be surprised to find that it’s a lot,” she said. “That basically says that there’s a lot of items that most of us use on a day-to-day basis that we can’t buy here,” she said. “I had a friend say to me a couple of weeks ago, ‘I have a funeral to go to and I can’t go anywhere in town to buy a tie.’”

Heitzig said there are some specialty retailers to fulfill some needs, but not enough. “I think there’s just a golden opportunity for some small businesses to thrive here,” she said. “We’d like to see some local people start some of those businesses.” Local municipal government

“I think there’s just a golden opportunity for some small businesses to thrive here. We’d like to see some local people start some of those businesses.”

Mary Heitzig Jersey County Business Association CEO has taken several steps to attract new businesses and retain the ones already established. Establishing tax increment finance (TIF) districts in Jerseyville and Grafton are some of the ways those cities have attempted to bolster their

local economies. “Our greatest boon to local businesses, I think, would be starting our TIF projects,” Jerseyville Mayor Richard Perdun said. “Everybody knows the TIF is just another way for the city to give an economic incentive to help revitalize our downtown area.” Applications for two TIF projects in Jerseyville are nearing acceptance, and the mayor said there are more on the way. A new sporting goods store, a revitalized 518 restaurant and the announcement of State Street Bar and Grill are also signs that there is faith in the potential for success in Jersey County, Heitzig said. The JCBA CEO said one of the biggest obstacles facing local businesses is getting residents into the habit of looking local before deciding to leave the county. JCBA works with the governments of the cities and county to improve the business climate. “We’re basically here to provide some economic development leadership and support for local businesses,” Heitzig said. Heitzig said real estate taxes have been a hot topic in the community in recent months, which she said further exemplifies the need for more businesses. She

said a lack of local businesses limits the tax support for public services. “You don’t have companies, even medium- and small-sized companies, helping to offset that tax base,” she said. “It’s up to the residents and it’s up to the businesses that are here to pay all the taxes.” Bringing in new, private investment is the No. 1 priority for the JCBA, so the burden on residents can be lessened. She said a successful TIF program, and perhaps the implementation of an enterprise zone will go a long way to attracting new business to Jerseyville. “(TIF) is the only program that the state has that really leaves total local control,” she said. “It’s going to be a real great program for the community, so we want to get that up and running.”

Benefits of buying locally Buying locally is a great way for consumers to find the products and services they're looking for and help their local economy along the way. The small businesses in your community may be owned by your next door neighbor, who relies on his or her fellow townspeople to keep the business going strong. Buying locally creates jobs. The number of unemployed men and women has gradually declined in recent years, but those figures are still high in many communities. Buying locally creates jobs in your community, potentially creating a job for you or a friend or family member. Buying locally creates a more closely knit community. Buying local-

ly is an opportunity to strengthen the bond with your neighbors, creating a close knit community in which residents may feel safer and more comfortable. Buying locally is more convenient. Convenience is paramount to many consumers, and buying locally saves both time and money. Driving to a faraway mall or shopping center or paying costly online shipping fees is not nearly as quick or convenient as shopping within your community, where you can purchase and take home items on the same day without using a full tank of gas or paying for shipping. In addition to helping local business owners, consumers who shop locally are also helping themselves.

BUSINESSES

Don’t neglect your online presence

(StatePoint) If you own a small business, you know that online visibility is one of the keys to success. And these days, harnessing the Web is crucial to any marketing plan. “While most small business owners know they need a strong Web presence, many of them are not taking enough action to build and maintain it,” says Tim Carroll, Vice President of Small Business Engagement at Deluxe Corp., a provider of marketing services and products for small businesses. In fact, of those small business owners who put a high level of importance on Web presence, 70 percent spend less than one hour a week maintaining it, according to a new Deluxe study. In contrast, only 1.2 percent spend 10 or more hours each week on their Web maintenance. National Small Business Week, May 12-16, is the perfect time to learn how to use the Internet to keep your business top of mind with prospective customers. And Carroll offers some top tips for maximizing your company’s presence online. n Interact: Since current and prospective consumers use social media, you can’t neglect this marketing approach. Social media marketing

Sepy - Fotolia.com

isn’t just about gaining followers. It becomes a vehicle for sharing your company’s message, as well as driving traffic to your website. This will ultimately help generate new customers and referrals. Don’t be afraid to use Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites to ask customers for feedback and show your personality. Use calls to action to acquire new followers, engage them further and encourage reviews of your services. Many small businesses turn to consultants or social marketing services for help with developing and executing a social media strategy. When effective, these efforts will place a brand in front of its target audience. Small business owners should look for a service that also tracks results in order to gain insight into how its customers engage online. n Website: “Today, a business without a website is a business without a face,” says Carroll. “A clean, easy-tonavigate, and mobile-friendly online presence is one your customers will remember.” Unfortunately, less than a third of small business owners think they are proficient or extremely proficient at

maintaining their individual company websites, which is why many seek outside help developing a site and building content. n Search engines: With 91 percent of Internet users utilizing search engines, according to the Deluxecommissioned study, search engine optimization can be your key to better visibility online. After all, a website is hardly useful if no one can find it. Additionally, consider search engine marketing services to help your online advertising and to make use of local searches by more effectively targeting your customer audience. n Email marketing: Small business email marketing is the centerpiece of any effort to stay in touch with existing customers, while reaching out and finding new ones. Use it to promote new items and offer special discounts to loyal customers or to simply keep in touch. More tips, strategies and information about marketing your business online can be found at www.Deluxe. com. Small business owners know they need to be online. It just takes commitment and the right tools to capitalize on the potential.

LADY PANTHERS Recent results: May 12 — Highland 7 Jersey 0 May 9 — Granite City 0 Jersey 10 May 8 — Jersey 11 Carrollton 12 May 7 — Mascoutah 0 Jersey 4 The Lady Panthers' next victory will be their 16th and tie the Jersey Community High School record for wins in a single softball season. The next chance for the Lady Panthers (15-13, 4-4 MVC) to tie the record will be against Triad at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, at the Jerseyville American Legion softball field.

Sydney Jones won an individual Mississippi Valley Conference title for the second time in as many seasons, Mary Claire Davis added another win to her resume and the Jersey Community High School girls track and field team finished fourth at this season's MVC championship meet Thursday in Mascoutah. The Lady Panthers totaled 85 points, fourth behind champion Triad's 127, Highland's 120 and Civic Memorial's 102. Waterloo (53 points) and Mascoutah (36) rounded out the field.

She'll try for a repeat trip to Charleston when the Lady Panthers compete at the 17-team Springfield Class 2A Sectional Saturday at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School. Jersey took first place in two of the three jumping disciplines with Davis' win in the high jump Thursday. The JCHS senior leaped 5 feet, 2 inches, to take the title. Freshman Anne Snyders placed second in the 400-meter run, finishing in 1 minute, 0.75 seconds, and ran one leg of Jersey's runner-up 4x400-meter relay team. Teammates Kaylin Smith, Kiara Chapman and Hannah Goshorn made up the rest of the 4x400 relay squad.

Illinois law enforcement out in force to remind motorists to ‘Click It or Ticket’ The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Illinois State Police and over 500 local law enforcement agencies have announced plans to crack down on seat belt law and impaired driving violators. To kick off the busy summer travel season, a two-week law enforcement mobilization will began May 9 and will run through Memorial Day, May 26. During this time, police will enforce seat belt, impaired driving and other traffic laws 24/7, with a large number of patrols occurring during late-night hours when the most unbuckled fatalities occur on Illinois roads. This mobilization coincides with the beginning of the busy summer travel season, when traffic is at its highest. All too often the increase in traffic is followed by an increase in motor vehicle fatalities. While Illinois has remained below 1,000 fatalities for the last five years, the last two years have seen increases. As of May 7, total provisional motor vehicle fatalities in Illinois are 246, 84 below the same date last year. Illinois’ primary seat belt law originally enacted in 2003 has had a direct effect on keeping Illinois fatalities below 1,000 in recent years. In 2012, the Illinois primary seat belt law was expanded to every seating position meaning a ticket can be issued to an unbuckled motorist in the front and back seat. Seat belt laws are strongly enforced and advertised, bringing about a nearly 94 percent front seat, daytime seat belt usage rate. However, back seat usage rates are much lower, and an even bigger problem is the number of unbuckled motor vehicle

fatalities occurring during late night hours. “Even with nine out of 10 frontseat motorists buckling up in Illinois during the day, far too many people are still dying because they didn’t wear a seat belt, especially late at night,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider. “IDOT, the Illinois State Police and hundreds of dedicated local police and sheriff’s departments are saying today that needs to change.” The primary goal of “Click it or Ticket” is to get more people to buckle up during nighttime hours especially when other factors such as drunk driving play a large role in crashes. Provisional data shows 1,339 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts on Illinois roads from 2009 through 2013. Of those unbuckled fatalities occurring during these years, 650, or 49 percent, were killed during the 9 p.m. - 6 a.m. timeframe. These data show why the Illinois State Police and local law enforcement statewide are reminding motorists that seat belt enforcement will be stepped up in the coming weeks – especially at night. Motorists choosing to not buckle in every seating position will be ticketed. Motorists choosing to drive impaired will be arrested. “Seat belt compliance remains a top priority for the Illinois State Police,” said Colonel Mike Zerbonia. “Click It or Ticket has proven to be an effective means of raising awareness and saving lives. ISP Troopers will continue enforcement efforts over the coming months.”

STATE OF ILLINOIS IN THE CIRCUIT COURT FOR THE SEVENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT JERSEY COUNTY In the Matter of the Petition of MARC D. KIRBY and HEATHER N. KIRBY, Husband & Wife,

“IDOT is utilizing federal safety dollars to assist Illinois law enforcement in providing more seat belt enforcement,” Secretary Schneider continued. “They’ll be out there during rush hour, during the morning commute and during those late night hours when the most unbuckled fatalities occur. If you’re caught unbuckled or driving drunk, you’ll be given a ticket or arrested. It is not about money; it’s not about tickets. It’s about saving lives.” Over 1.4 million in federal safety dollars has been made available to the Illinois State Police and over 540 local law enforcement agencies to provide additional seat belt and drunk driving patrols during the two-week “Click It or Ticket” mobilization period. The federal dollars will fund thousands of seat belt enforcement zones and seat belt saturation patrols. Fifty percent or more of these patrols will occur during nighttime hours (9 p.m. to 6 a.m.). The mobilization also includes drunk driving enforcement including over 50 roadside safety checks.
