Block near East Elementary school to be closed By JARAD JARMON Jersey County Journal The 400 block of E Exchange Street between the Jerseyville East Elementary School and the school’s playground will be closed during school hours following a Jerseyville City Council vote Tuesday. The council voted on the closure at their meeting that evening. The measure was said to curb concerns from school staff that children might be hit by oncoming traffic on the street when they cross to go to the playground. “The only thing I really dislike about East Elementary is the thought of kids crossing that road,” said East Elementary Principal Kim Anderson, who was at the meeting. “We haven’t had in problems, but I just really feel like it’s a very scary, a very dangerous situation.”

Anderson said the school follows strict rules requiring its 462 students to be with an adult to cross the road, but it does not remove concern among school staff. “There is always that chance,” Anderson said. “When you take your kids to the park, there is always a chance they are going to run out in the road. Second, third and fourth grade; if they have to go to the bathroom, there is a chance they are going to forget they have to be with an adult to cross the road.” Councilman Nick Bexheti, who is in charge of streets and public improvement, mirrored those sentiments. “We don’t want to wait for something bad to happen,” Bexheti said. Closing off this street will close off access to 10 to 14 parking spots along this section. Anderson said the school (See, BLOCK CLOSING, A2)

Excavator sits next to debris Friday on the property of what once was a Sonic Drive-In. Over the next couple of weeks, crews will level the building and other structures on the property. Terry Hansen, owner of the property, said this will be making way for a new business, possibly a car wash, in the coming months. He stressed nothing has been set in stone as of yet. Sonic closed several years ago. Following the closure, a vape store set up shop in the property for a couple of years before relocating.

Joe Page Bridge is open By JARAD JARMON Jersey County Journal It has been more than two months since the Joe Page Bridge has seen traffic outside of service vehicles, but it was announced Tuesday that the major throughway between Calhoun and Greene counties is now open, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. According to an IDOT news release, the Illinois Route 16/100 from the Joe Page Bridge intersection in Hardin to

Eldred Road in Jersey County and the bridge itself has been opened. The bridge has been closed since Monday, June 3, in the wake of historic flooding in the area. For weeks, much of the area has returned normal, but the same could not be said for East Hardin near the bridge, which still had inches of water that had no place to drain to. There were still thousands of acres still underwater. One such place underwater was the pump house, a necessary site to pump water out of

the area. After 152 consecutive days of impacts to the transportation system in IDOT District 8, all roadways, facilities and services impacted by the flood have been restored, according to the release. It was noted that roads in Madison County had been closed as a result of recent heavy rains. The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office stated in a Facebook post Tuesday that the Kampsville and Brussels ferries will (See, BRIDGE, A2)

By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Jersey County Journal Acting Jersey County Emergency Management Coordinator Mike Morgan provided an update on flood damage assessment during the Jersey County Board meeting on Aug. 13. The original flood declaration was proclaimed 97 days ago and has morphed into what is now the recovery phase. “We have made progress from the health life safety phase to the recovery phase,” Morgan said. Morgan stated that flood damage assessment teams from both the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Emergency Agency will be in the county this week to conduct assessments. According to Morgan, the assessments will be divided in two groups, public (government entities and businesses) and individual (homeowners). Currently, there are a lot of expenses and damage evaluations that have been logged and will be submitted to FEMA for possible assistance. Jersey County Sheriff Mike Ringhausen was on hand to honor several officers, faculty and members of the community that have either served the county distinguishably or have helped contribute monetary donations to help purchase equipment for training purposes. Among those was County Officer Dave Womack. Womack was also honored by the Sheriff’s Office for his 20 years of service upon retirement. Earlier this year, Womack rescued an individual from a partially submerged vehicle in high flood waters near the Illinois Youth Correctional Facility in Grafton. Womack waded through chest high waters to retrieve the individual and help carry him to safety. As part of the ceremony, representatives from the American Sons of the Revolution General George Rogers Clark chapter, which oversees Jersey, Calhoun, Madison, Bond, Montgomery and Macoupin counties, were on hand to present Womack with a plaque and a medal in light of his heroic actions. In addition, Cindy Wagner was also recognized for her 30 years of service. Also, Anthony Fuhrmann, director of the Local Workforce Innovation Area 22, summarized what the (See, ASSESSMENTS, A2)

Jerseyville, Illinois

Resident to teach English in Kuwait Bridge By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Jersey County Journal Twenty-seven year old and 2010 graduate of Jersey Community High School, Meagan McGlasson is set to embark on a journey to Kuwait this week to teach English for a month. McGlasson is currently a teacher at the ELS Language Center in St. Louis where she teaches English to adult non-speaker, something she first got into when she took an 18-month trip to China to teach children in 2015. It was there where the passion was immediately ignited. “I loved it and realized that’s what I needed to be doing,� McGlasson said. Upon returning to home, she later realized teaching adults would be an even better fit for her. “I came back and thought maybe adults were more my speed, and I was right,� she said. “I love the challenge that they bring.�

For McGlasson, it is about the progress that her students take and the changes she can see from start to finish, “As you go and make progress, you learn more and more about these people, so it is super rewarding in terms of the payoff for the teacher,� she said. Given her background in teaching and her love to interact with people from different cultures, electing to take the position in Kuwait was a nobrainer. “I like traveling, and I’ve never been to the Middle East so I thought this was a great opportunity,� McGlasson said. Some would say going to the middle east in itself will certainly bring about challenges, but McGlasson is not phased. “Kuwait is really safe,� she said. “It’s very modern, and I have no concerns�. She noted she was aware there are more restrictions there than in other

areas one may travel to. For instance, Kuwait does not have gender equality as many other nations do. “This will be the first time I’m coming to an area as a woman and foreseeing challenges with access and conversation,� she said. “I’m not going to be able to just go out like I would here.� With that being said, she finds herself in a position where she encourages others to take on a similar role or at least travel instead of being deterred from the job. “Teaching overseas is really easy to get into. All you need is a bachelor’s degree and a certificate that you can get in St. Louis,� McGlasson said.�I always encourage people to travel. You don’t realize how much of you is a product of where you were raised and how you were raised and what your cultural context is, and when you remove yourself from that, you get a really clear distilled sense of who you are as a person.�

Town hall addresses lack of post-flood road access By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Jersey County Journal It’s no secret that the historic 2019 flood has had a devastating impact on Calhoun. As things start returning to normal, with the Joe Page bridge expected to open up soon, a need for an alternative option in case of another major weather event is a concern for many residents of the community, a concern several addressed in a recent town hall meeting. “Something is going to have to give,� Access Calhoun organizer Pam Long said. “We need better options.� Access Calhoun is a group in the community frustrated with the lack of access into the county following flood events, which are common occurrences for a county bounded by two rivers. Forty members of the community gathered at St. Anslem Parish Hall in Kampsville on Aug. 6 with guests U.S Congressman Rodney Davis, local state Senator Steve McClure, local state Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer, and a secretary from U.S Senator Tammy Duckworth. The public meeting was sparked by a flood access road petition that was started up by Long and her brother, Danny Bazillion. The petition, which was posted on Facebook and the Go Petition website, has been distributed in paper form throughout many businesses in the county. On the day of the town hall, there were approximately 1,500 signatures. The focal point of the discussion was a preliminary meeting to brainstorm ideas on possible ways to ensure that the county will not be cut off again in case a similar event were to strike in the future. This year’s flooding was a major problem for many residents, with many boating to work and

to get supplies or making the four-hour trek to Jerseyville through Pike County. Long presented to the public seven options that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) had proposed after the ’93 flood that were abandoned shortly after they were introduced. Those seven options to improve access to the county were: QProviding a new bridge over the Illinois River near the Brussels Ferry site west of Grafton Q Raise the approaches and landings to the Brussels Ferry to an elevation of 443’ Q Raise the 12.4-mile Nutwood Levee in Greene and Jersey counties to an elevation of 443’ QRaise the Illinois Route 16/100 roadway and the approach to the Joe Page Bridge to an elevation of 443’

“Something is going to have to give. We need better options.�

Pam Long Access Calhoun organizer Q Provide a new bridge over the Illinois River, approximately four miles south of Hardin, replacing the Joe Page Bridge Q Raising the Nutwood Levee above the ’93 flood mark or leaving the levee as is and raising the roadway to 443’ Q Provide improved access to the Golden Eagle Ferry by constructing a new approach roadway on the Missouri side, maintaining ferry operation during flood conditions. All of these options are very costly, though, with the most inexpensive being $17 million to raise the Nutwood Levy and the most expensive being building a new bridge at a rough estimate of $68

Block closing (Continued from A1) parking will be expanded to accommodate those spots. The additional parking will cut into space for the playground, but Anderson ensured the playground was still plenty big for the students. Also, the council OK’d rezoning to make room for an addition to the Jerseyville Manor, an assisted living

to submit their proposals by April 5, and the inaugural group of Illinois Super Sites was determined later in April. Albrecht said it was a competitive designation noting other projects in the running for this designation were further along and there were a limited amount of spots. “Considerable work went into it,� she said of the request. Albrecht said she thinks Jersey’s connection to the Midwest from southern businesses as well as the proj-

facility. Robert Manns, director of Public Works, said the rezoning allows the Jerseyville Manor to expand north of the facility. The addition would mean an approximately 60,000-square-foot expansion to the building. It is said to be a 45-unit assisted living addition, said Steve Hollander, architect with on the project.

The local workforce area helps train those who need to develop a skill for a certain trade or job and provide other resources to help that individual succeed. They also help businesses by holding job fairs and testing as they help eliminate all the red tape an employer may

have to go through. At the meeting, a motion passed to hire the services of American Legal Publishing for the codification of county ordinances and building codes maintained by the County Clerk and other county entities. The base cost is roughly $9,000, which could increase or decrease depending on the amount of pages to process. Costs will be split between fee-based account in the County Clerk’s office and the legal services line item in the General Fund.

million, but Congressman Davis stated that a plan would need to be in place for him to present the agreedupon option to the powersthat-be. He reiterated that once an option was decided on and the cost was obtained from IDOT, he would be able to help pursue the matter further. “You have to tell us what you want,� Davis said. “We can be that unified voice.� Another issue that was also discussed was the inability to use ferry improvement funds, a concern raised by Kyle Godar and that has been discussed in prior Calhoun County Commissioners meetings. Currently, the county is unable to use the few hundred thousand dollars in federal grant funding because of the strict guidelines that are in place for the expenditure of those funds. Davis was extremely concerned that the money is not being used and instead is going back to where it came from. He plans on making that a priority by making sure those funds can be used to make necessary improvements near the Golden Eagle Ferry.

Got Faith Festival to feed the hungry Burger King, Olive Branch and Taco Bell, as well as Bunkhouse Joe coffee, kicking off at 9:30 a.m. in the grandstands. “Last year people were going, ‘Where’s the healthy option?,’” Pegram said. “So this year, Olive Branch is bringing bananas, oranges, and fruit- all stuff you can eat with your hands in the grandstands.” This year will again feature speaker Tim Ezell of Fox 2’s “The Thread.” Ezell, a pastor himself, uses his televised platform to travel around the St. Louis area calling attention to individuals and organizations making a difference in their communities. “Hopefully we’re going to change somebody’s life out there,” Pegram said. Lunch will also be provided free of charge, this year, cooked up by Barb and Ken Schaefer. The couple will be making 250 pulled pork sandwiches and 100 hot dogs for community members who have worked up an appetite shopping. The annual Cars for Cans Crusade also takes place Saturday, with registration from 8 to 11 a.m. The entry fee for each car is a canned good, although participants are welcome to donate more. Judging for that event begins at noon with prizes awarded at 2:30 p.m. Attendees vote for their favorite car by trading cans of food for tickets, which they then drop into the bucket of their favorite car. “There’s cars from all over, from Missouri and Springfield and even further,” said Pegram. “Last year, Steve White took it over and it really took off.” Other events include the shopping cart race at 11 a.m. on Saturday for the coveted Jersey Cup, which is currently held by Walmart, and live music from Servant Heart, Saved by Grace and pastor Terry Mckinzie of Bethalto at the entrance of the grandstand from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Got Faith Festival will be held Friday, Aug. 16 and Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Jerseyville American Legion property.

By MEAGAN MCGLASSON Jersey County Journal This weekend, Steve Pegram and Got Faith Ministries are inviting the community to once again come out to make a difference by participating in one of the county’s biggest canned food drives. Just like previous years, the free twoday festival, which includes the 500 Men Breakfast, yard sale and Cans for Cars Crusade event will take place at the Jerseyville American Legion property (Jersey County Fairgrounds). From 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, community members are invited to bring canned food to exchange for yard sale items under the pavilion. All canned food donations are given to area food banks. “You come in and give us a can, and you get a ticket. You trade that ticket for an item at the yard sale,” Pegram said. “I mean, we don’t do junk. We’ve got what’s left from Panther Land and a bunch of stuff from churches. We’ve got good stuff, but, if you can’t find something you like for some reason, you can get your name put in a bucket for a drawing for gift cards.” As previously reported, the pavilion will also host the supplies donated to Got Faith’s Bless a Teacher supply drive. “Teachers come in and sign their names and pick out whatever they want from our supply table, because you know a preschool teacher might need crayons but a high school teacher might not,” Pegram said of the drive. The organization is still seeking donations for teacher and attendance prizes for the event. “We could always use more,” Pegram explained. Of course, the main event is really Saturday, with the traditional 500 Men Breakfast, serving options from Hardee’s,

Local tourism on the rise again By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Jersey County Journal With the aftermath of the flood subsiding, tourism continues to rise across the tri-county area mirroring growth across the state, according to early reports from the Illinois Department of Commerce’s Office of Tourism. In 2018, visitors to the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau region which includes, Jersey, Greene, Calhoun, Madison,

Macoupin and Montgomery counties, spent $695.5 million, an increase of $28.72 million over 2017 which marks a 4.3 percent total increase of revenue.

Additionally, job growth in the Great Rivers & Routes region has climbed slightly with a total of 5,050 full-

time jobs in the tourism sectors. “These numbers are encouraging and show how vital tourism is to the local economy,” said Brett Stawar, president and CEO of the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau. “Our tourism sector is key to the continued economic growth of our region. The growth also shows the razor sharp focus of the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau and how what we do helps drive in new visitors.”

Teachers should not be paying out-of-pocket

Phone (618) 498-1234 E-mail: circulation@


Publisher: Nichole Liehr

Executive Editor: Julie Boren


head of the school year as school physicals are turned in and school supply lists are sent out, a slew of school supplies donation drives crop up to start teachers off on a good footing.

The Jersey County Business Association’s latest donation drive collected bags from local businesses to give to incoming teachers. The Got Faith Ministry also collected donations for school supplies to hand out to teachers in the county at their festival this weekend. It is a testament to the community spirit in the county that each time these drives ramp up, donation after donation floods in to support these teachers. It truly is a meaningful gesture. But these efforts are only a Band-Aid, albeit one that is necessary nowadays, on a much larger problem with school funding. It should be self-evident: teachers should not be put in situations where they spend out-of-pocket for school supplies to provide students with the proper tools for learning. The National Center for Education Statistics reported last year that 94 percent of teachers pay for classroom supplies, whether that includes crayons, construction paper, pens, pencils or any other school supply, with their own money. Based on the report, these teachers are spending an average of nearly $500 a year doing so. It is an especially egregious state of affairs that any are put in this position, let alone almost all of them. Often teaching is heralded as a noble and vital profession for a functioning society and yet funding, state or otherwise, does not represent that. Of course, these are not new revelations. Education has often seen cut after cut in funding whether it is to staff or to pay, but it is something nevertheless that should be echoed, especially ahead of the new school year. Simply put, more money should be funneled specifically toward correcting these burdens on teachers. Whether it is tweaking the funding formula as a whole or focusing more dollars toward these areas, something should be done to mitigate this issue, because should these donations dry up, it truly will be all on the teacher. Certainly, there are other aspects of education in need of financial attention, but a teacher having to spend their own money on necessary school supplies is simply indefensible. Until there is a day when this is not the case, keep your local teachers in mind and make sure to look out for local and national drives centered on giving these teachers classroom supplies. They will need all the help they can get going into another year with these kids.

Results don’t define stories, journeys do T

his last year has been one of the busiest and most stressful I have had in a long time. It was one of those years where my hunting was minimal. I’m actually embarrassed to tell you how many times I turkey hunted. Pitiful. This year, I’m looking forward to a more active deer season. I think I’ll have more opportunities to go. Those hours in the tree stand are terribly therapeutic. In order to be successful, they force me to be patient, quiet, and even reflective. On one property I hunt, I’ve already spotted a couple of nice bucks. My ability to be inactive will determine success. If I’m able to harvest one of these deer, the characteristic of that hunt will be patience and not settling for a lessor trophy. The risk, because in situations like this there’s always a risk, will be ending the season empty-handed. It’s a result I am familiar with. When trophy hunting, one has to decide that the journey will be the success. Not a meaningless journey, but one that will be filled with new information that could possibly lead to a buck of a lifetime. Nevertheless, the journey will be what the story is all about. It will be the plot and theme. If I’m able to take one of these bucks, it will only be a necessary ending. Because all stories must have an end. Your story is not the end. The end is just necessary. The end may or may not be what you thought it would be. In fact, the end will most likely be something you never expected. And it may or may not be long. It will most likely be only a short pause in

what is really your story. Your story, instead, will be made up of small, seemingly insignificant, moments. It will be made up of activities and not titles. While there may be some great accomplishment that outsiders will Outdoor know you for; the most Truths important ones in your life will see your story BY GARY as something so much MILLER different. They will tell it to others not by saying “She did” but by saying “She was.” They will tell about you, describing your spirit, not your accomplishments. While you may get the trophy you are after, the story will include things like patience, compassion, determination, and love. And these will be what others will use to describe you. Once again, however, there is risk in trophy hunting. It’s that you might come home empty-handed, but only emptyhanded concerning the end. So, go ahead and reach for something rare. But don’t think, if by chance you can’t grab it, your story will be less. It won’t be. In fact, it won’t be any different. Only the end will be. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years.

Those dog kisses bring more than affection A

s a dog owner, my family and I have had our share of “dog kisses” over the years. It is pleasing to have an affectionate dog and one way they show affection is to lick you; it is something they learned as puppies. As far as I know, our family has avoided any diseases as a result of those “dog kisses”. Like many others, I remember being told as a child that a dog’s mouth is actually cleaner than a human’s mouth; as a result, I never really thought much about the potential for any serious condition to result from being exposed to a dog’s saliva. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth; a dog’s mouth is filthy. Two recent cases involving humans contracting a debilitating disease as a result of a “dog kiss” have received a lot of publicity so perhaps it would be helpful to review the situation briefly. First of all, it is estimated that most dogs have over 700 types of bacteria in their mouths, not counting what was in that horse ca-ca they chowed down on this morning. Some of these bacteria can be transmitted to humans and can result in a human illness. Two of the better known and most harmful bacteria in a dog’s mouth are salmonella and E-coli, two types of bacteria that could make anyone sick. But the bacteria spread from dog saliva to humans that has been receiving attention recently is capnocytophaga; if transmitted from dog to human, this bacteria can ultimately lead to a sepsis infection and that is serious stuff. This transmission occurs most often if you are bitten by a dog or if you permit a dog to lick an open wound, but it can also occur if the dog licks you in the mouth. Within the past month, Marie Trainer, a woman in Ohio, developed what was ultimately diagnosed as “capnocytophaga canimorsus”; all indications are that it resulted because she allowed her dog to lick an open sore on her body. She eventually developed a sepsis infection and despite intensive treatment with antibiotics, she ultimately had to be put into an induced coma for

10 days. When she awoke, er she discovRidge Runn S ered that both C H RO N I C L E legs and both Guest Column arms had been BY BILL HOAGLAND amputated to save her life. A similar situation occurred in 2018 regarding Greg Manteufel, a man in Wisconsin. He also had significant direct contact with one or more dogs and also contracted “capnocytophaga canimorsus”, resulting in a sepsis infection and ultimately amputation of his hands and legs. He has had at least eight surgeries and may still need to have portions of his nose amputated. If you need further proof on how serious this can be, google those two names and see for yourself what can happen. It ain’t pretty. It is estimated that 70 percent of all dogs have the capnocytophaga bacteria in their saliva. Most humans, when exposed to the capnocytophaga bacteria via a “dog kiss”, have no ill effects. But if the saliva gets into the blood, such as will occur with a dog bite or allowing the dog to lick an open wound, or if certain types of persons are exposed to dog saliva via a “dog kiss”, such as babies, elderly people or people with weakened immune systems, the risk is much greater. We all love our dogs and enjoy the affection, but just remember to use some common sense when it comes to “dog kisses.” Note, this column is about bacteria in a dog’s mouth. We did not even touch on the parasites that dogs can share with humans: giardiasis, hookworms and tapeworms, for example. ––––––––––––––––––– Q Bill Hoagland has practiced law in Alton for more than 50 years, but he has spent more than 70 years hunting, fishing and generally being in the great outdoors.

News items from the pages of Jersey County Journal 5 Years Ago August 13, 2014 Last week, at a meeting in Macomb on the Corridor 67 project, Illinois Department of Transportation’s five year plan was unveiled. A local delegation learned Jersey County’s portion of the project is not at the forefront of the state’s project schedule. “The Jerseyville link has been taken off the five-year plan, for the time being,� JCBA CEO Mary Heitzig, who attended the Aug. 5 meeting, said. Even though there may not be a definitive date for a four-lane highway to reach Jerseyville, Heitzig said the existing portion of the expressway is already benefitting the area. Travel times in and out of the county have dropped drastically, she said. Despite a board member’s attempt to illustrate potential dangers, the Jersey County Board shot down a motion to install security cameras at the county government building in a 4-to-8 vote. The building and grounds committee chairman cited two security breaches in the county building as reason to seek a security camera system.

10 Years Ago August 12, 2009 Even with a lone dissenting vote on the council, the Grafton aldermen were able to approve hiring three new police officers Tuesday. By a vote of 5-1, the Grafton City Council approved hiring former alderman Tim Connell, part-time police officer Melissa Mike and volunteer firefighter Peggie O’Neil. They replaced departed Grafton Police Chief Kevin Schimeder and officers Travis Printy and John Wimmersberg. The newest member of the Jersey County Board is a familiar face around the Grafton area. Jersey County Board Chairman Pam Heitzig appointed Tony Carey to fill the remainder of Dick Brown’s term as a member from Quarry Township, District 3. “Tony has been involved in local government in the Grafton area and comes highly recommended,� said Heitzig. Carey, who served as city clerk in Grafton for 20 years, was sworn-in by County Clerk Steve Pohlman after Tuesday’s meeting.

ISP announces July patrol activity Illinois State Police District 18, Commander Mark Gillock, announces patrol activity during the month of July. Troopers responded to 148 requests for service and/or assistance from the public. These calls included 37 motorist assists which are requests for service from motorists whose vehicles were disabled or in need of assistance on area highways. In addition, Troopers handled 45 traffic crashes throughout the five counties of Montgomery, Macoupin, Greene, Jersey and Calhoun. ISP D-18 handled two fatal crashes in July that resulted in 2 fatalities. District 18 officers completed 158 Motor Carrier Safety Inspections on commercial motor vehicles resulting in 24 vehicles/drivers being placed out of service for safety related violations. Traffic enforcement activities resulted in 17 total alcohol related arrests which include 10 citations for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs. In addition, 697 citations were issued and the Fatal Four violations break down as

follows, 6-DUI, 405-Speeding, 51-Occupant Restraint, and 10-Distracted Driving. Troopers also made 38 criminal arrests throughout the month of July. In July, District 18 personnel presented Safety Education Programs to various schools, business and civic organizations. Audiences were educated on topics covering; Alcohol Awareness, Seatbelt/Child Restraint Safety, Distracted Driving, Computer Crimes/Internet Safety, School Bullying, Rules of the Road and various other public safety topics. District 18 Troopers will be busy during the month of August. In addition to normal patrols, District 18 will be conducting a RSC, ACE, OREP and NITE patrols in Jersey, Macoupin and Montgomery County. The goals are simple, reduce fatalities and make Illinois roadways safer through education and increased enforcement. One driving fatality is one too many and Illinois State Police are committed to driving zero fatalities to a reality.

Health officials stress vaping hazards after hospitalizations By KYLE CUNNINGHAM Jersey County Journal The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is working with local health departments to investigate the hospitalization of three young people who experienced severe problems after vaping. The department is now working in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services who had had 11 confirmed and seven suspected cases of severe pulmonary disease among adolescents who have been known to vape. Vaping has been a popular avenue for people of all ages to help stop cigarette smoking while still satiating their addiction to nicotine. However, with the rising promotion of Juuls and other e-cigarette devices, teens are gravitating towards that first instead of choosing other forms. While smokeless tobacco on the outside may seem a safer albeit still potentially harmful option, it poses several dangers, according to IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike. “While short- and long-term effects

of vaping are still being researched, these recent hospitalizations heighten the need for parents to talk with their teens about vaping and for both to understand the consequences and potential dangers of vaping,” Ezike said. According to the Truth Initiative, in 2017, 4.4 percent of adults used e-cigarettes, while an alarming 13.2 percent of Illinois high school students used electronic vapor products at least one day in the past 30 days, which is also the national average. This year, the American Association of Poison Control Centers have managed 2,439 exposure cases about e-cigarette devices and liquid nicotine. Vaping has sparked a new generation of tobacco users that otherwise wouldn’t have existed. In 2015 alone, the U.S Surgeon General reported that e-cigarette use among high school students had increased by 900 percent, and 40 percent of young e-cigarette users had never smoked regular tobacco. Some symptoms linked to e-cigarette usage include coughing, shortness of breath and fatigue. One unconfirmed potential disease that can develop is
