Pike rallies to find missing hunter


Look who’s celebrating an anniversary! See page B1

Beth Zumwalt/Pike Press

A group of volunteers load up after finding a missing deer hunter. Richard Chapman was missing throughout the night Sunday and was found around 8:15 a.m. Monday morning. He was cold, dehydrated but was otherwise in good condition, according to police reports. Dozens of people looked for the man Sunday night and again Monday morning before he was found, safe.

A Virginia hunter is safe after being missing for several hours Sunday and into Monday. Nearly every fire department in the county, the sheriff’s department and countless volunteers searched Sunday evening into Monday morning for the man. Numerous other local agencies responded to the call; search and rescue units from the region also responded. The Pike County Sheriff’s office received a call at approximately 9:30 Sunday evening that Richard Chapman, 54, of Duffield Va., had been hunting in an area near the top of the Florence Hill and to the north. Chapman reportedly left the cabin he was staying in about 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning and advised his companions he would be out all day. A fellow hunter became concerned when not hearing from Chapman after dusk Sunday evening. “We received the call about 9:30 and were looking for him by 10 p.m.,” Sheriff Paul Petty, said. “The area was very hilly with some hills being just like cliffs.” Shortly after beginning the search, Chapman’s truck was found and also what was believed to be his deer stand. His cell phone was found in his truck. A small army of searchers began the task of looking for Chapman, including the East Pike and Pittsfield fire departments, the Pike County Sheriff’s Department and numerous individuals from the Detroit area. Personnel used ATVs,

RTVs and UTVs to begin a concentrated search around the acreage where Chapman was authorized to hunt. The terrain was described to be extremely thick vegetation with numerous gullies and ravines. As the night grew longer and the temperatures were dropping, Spring Creek Fire Department, North Pike Fire Department and the Pike County Emergency Corps joined the search. (See, MISSING HUNTER, A2)

Richard Chapman, center, was the subject of an exhaustive search of the area between Detroit and the Toll Gate area Sunday night and Monday morning. With his two buddies from Virgina flanking him, they all said they were impressed with the search effort put into finding Chapman. The group had arrived in the area Saturday for a week long hunt.

County board votes to hire new lawyer for labor issues By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press The Pike County Board voted to hire Chris Walters to replace Charles Jellinek for future labor matters through the appellate prosecutor’s office at a meeting Monday, Oct. 28. “Charles (Jellinek) was a short term deal and, as you all came to figure out, this has turned into a long term deal,” Justin Noble, Labor Committee chairman, said. The board will now be able to go through the appellate prosecutor’s office any time there is a need for representation during labor disputes. “The plan is to keep Mr. Walters on board through the FOP, the ambulance and the courthouse employees. That way the county always has legal assistance, because we came to find out we’re going to need it,” Noble said. There was some disagreement over a change to item #6 on the second page of the county building permit application, the “Authorized Entry” section, which would allow authorized personell of the zoning office to enter and photograph a completed project that has been permitted by the county. The committee feels the change to the application is needed because of trouble in the past with buildings being converted into residential spaces and not being claimed as such

for tax purposes. The motion to make the change passed during the Agriculture Committee meeting held Oct. 2. Harry Wright made a motion to accept at the county board meeting which was seconded by Cleve Curry,

“Charles (Jellinek) was a short term deal and, as you all came to figure out, this has turned into a long term deal.”

Justin Noble Labor Committee chairman but some county board members were wary to approve the change to allow photographs to be taken in someone’s residence. “In my opinion, it’s an expansion of government in my private home for the sole purpose of making sure I’m paying the right taxes, and I just can’t…go along with it,” James Sheppard said. “People are ripping the county off. They’re building an ag building and then they’re converting it to different usage, primarily to dwell in, and they’re all over the country-

side,” Michael Boren, member of the Agriculture Committee, said. “We’re trying to stop it because we have a zoning law and it’s not fair to those of us who pay our taxes.” Wright withdrew his motion to approve the change. The problem will be discussed at the next Agricultural Committee meeting. The Public Safety Committee is still working with Klingner Company to build a new ambulance building, which will be approximately 10,850 square feet. Floor plans and approximate costs for the building will be discussed at the next Public Safety Committee to be held Nov. 7. “We don’t have the preliminary estimate by the company yet but the figure tossed around is $1.5 million, according to the usual cost of the floor square footage of where the offices are, plus the square footage of different figures for the garage,” Cleve Curry, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, said. Gary Whitehead, a representative from Servpro, a fire and water cleanup and restoration company, attended the meeting and discussed the company doing a disaster assessment of all the county buildings at no cost to the county to help them be prepared for the possibility of a disaster such as a tornado. The board voted to accept the service by Servpro. (See, BOARD, A2)

Raising money for honor flights By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press Griggsville-Perry Middle School student council is raising money for the Honor Flight Network. Every year around Veterans Day the student council holds fundraisers to help raise the money to send a veteran from the Griggsville-Perry area on an honor flight. “The main thing is we want to get at least one veteran to go on the honor flight,” Kristine Bingham, advisor for the Griggsville-Perry

Middle School student council, said. This year the students are selling Cardinals calendars for $15. Anyone who wishes to buy a calendar can contact Bingham at the middle school. Student council members are also selling red, white and blue rubber arm bands for $1 at sporting events to help raise money for the honor flight program. The student council has been doing fundraisers to help send veterans on the honor flight for around five years now.

“We’ve had several in our community go because of what we’re doing,” Bingham said. Besides raising money for the honor flight, the school will also be celebrating Veterans Day by having veterans come and speak to the students Friday, Nov. 8. When the fundraisers are over, the student council will present a certificate to the veteran or veterans who attend the honor flight. “I appreciate the community support in helping the kids reach this goal,” Bingham said.

Color Drive a success

GPHS adopting ‘Grand-pals’


By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press Griggsville-Perry High School has started a new program called “Adopt a Grandpal.” Volunteering students who have been given permission to leave the school campus visit Griggsville Estates every Friday during their lunch period to spend about an hour with the residents. While some students from the Team Impact group at Griggsville-Perry have gone to Griggsville Estates before to visit, it was only a few times during the year and only a few students participated. “In previous years it was maybe just four kids that went down there,” Kayt Risley, Griggsville-Perry nurse and “Adopt a Grand-pal” organizer, said, going on to explain that around 15 students have signed up to go to Griggsville Estates every Friday already.

The Findley Place Apartments groundbreaking was held in the fellowship hall of the First Christian Church Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 10 a.m. The event, originally scheduled to be held at the site of the apartments at 400 West Jefferson in Pittsfield, was relocated due to the cold weather. Former Congressman Paul Findley, which the project honors, attended and “broke ground” brought from the site. Findley lived in Pittsfield when he was elected to Congress in 1960 and he now lives in Jacksonville. Findley Apartments will be affordable housing for the elderly managed by the West Central Illinois Area Agency on Aging. C




The 25th annual Pike County Color Drive is over and it was a success, according to Kaye Iftner, Pike County Chamber of Commerce executive director. “I think it went very well,” Iftner said. “We had excellent crowds Saturday, despite cold weather in the morning.” Iftner also stated that several people participated in the map drawing. Maps and brochures were available at any color drive welcome booth or online at www. Attendees of the color drive could get the map stamped at each welcome booth, and those who visited seven different locations and turned the map in to the Chamber of Commerce qualified to win a Silver Eagle, a silver dollar valued at $40. The Chamber is giving out 10 Silver Eagles this year and several gift cards, as well. The drawing will take place Wednesday, Oct. 30 in the afternoon. Iftner explained that in the coming years, organizers would like to address the different things that happen in each town outside the main areas for the color drive that take away from the business at those places. Despite that problem, Iftner reported that this year

The fun continues... Even though the Color Drive is over, there are still a lot of things to do in Pike County this autumn. For wine lovers, the two wineries in Pike County are good destinations for dinner. The Collver Family Winery can be found in Barry and the Hopewell Winery is located in Rockport. Each location offers dinner and entertainment, including dinner theater, bands and parties. For people interested in history, there are several historical locations in Pike County. The Chamber of Commerce has brochures mapping a Pittsfield historical walking tour that takes visitors all over town. Visitors can also take Abe Lincoln’s Talking Houses Tour in Pittsfield. The tour takes visitors around Pittsfield to all the places where Lincoln was known to have stayed. Information about that site can be heard through a car radio tuned to 90.0 FM.

was very successful. “Everybody I’ve talked to said Saturday was a huge day, bigger than they’ve ever seen,” Iftner said. “Sunday was slow and it always is.”

Missing Hunter (Continued from A1) The group searched for five hours or until about 3 a.m. when the search was suspended until daylight. Early Monday morning the search was resumed with personnel from East Pike Fire, Pittsfield Fire, Pike and Adams ESDA, Pike County Emergency Corps, Pike County EMS, American Red Cross, Illinois State Police and Pike County Sheriff’s Department in the immediate area. Following a one-hour search Monday morning, Chapman was located almost due north of Detroit by a search party of six. Petty said Chapman apparently fell down one of the steep hills and became disoriented. “We don’t know what time he fell,” Petty said. “When he was found he was hunkered down in the brush. He said he had seen the plane but didn’t realize it was looking for him. He was pretty disoriented. When our guys walked up to him, he asked them if they would help him find the road.” Petty said upon first examination, Chapman appeared to have no injuries other than being dehydrated and cold. Dave Weekerly, a hunting companion of Chapman’s who reported


him missing, was appreciative of the turnout of people looking for his friend. “From the time I called until the time the first responders arrived on scene and until he was found, those assisting were top notch,” Weekerly said, adding that the entire effort was very professional and the willingness and desire of all involved to find his friend was exceptional. A complete list of all agencies assisting in the search includes: Menard Co. Rescue, Pittsfield fire department, EastPike fire protection district, Pike County sheriff’s department, Red Cross of Adams County, Hull-Kinderhook fire protection district, Barry fire protection district, Pike County Emergency Services, Brown County Emergency Management Agency, Adams County Emergency Management Agency, Pike County Volunteer Emergency Corps, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Illinois State Police, Peoria County sheriff’s department search and rescue. Agencies which were cancelled while responding after Chapman was found were Fulton County Rescue, McLean County Emergency Management Agency and MRC K9 of Missouri.

Curless places in auctioneering competititon By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press Brian Curless, a Pittsfieldbased auctioneer, recently took the reserve grand champion title at the Blue Grass South Livestock Market, Stanford, Ky. Monday, Oct. 21. Curless was second behind

20-year veteran Brian Little of Wann, Okla. The reserve grand champion status earns Curless a spot at the 2014 World Livestock Auctioneer Championship. The contest is during an actual sale with live bidders in the seats. Contestants were judged on the

clarity of their auction chant; vocal quality; their ability to catch bids and conduct the sale; and finally, if the judge would hire this auctioneer for their own livestock market. The WLAC highlights the auctioneer’s crucial role in the competitive marketing of livestock. LMA hosts the contest each year

to promote the auction method of selling livestock; which results in true price discovery of the value of all classes of livestock and sets the cash market for all other methods of selling. All qualifying events and the WLAC are broadcast live on www.

Ducks Unlimited holds auction fundraiser The Pike County chapter of Ducks Unlimited wrapped up another successful fund-raising banquet with some 140 supporters attending the annual event. This was the 44th chapter banquet for the local group. This year's program was dedicated to Mike Niebur who was a 30-year member of the organization and who served as chairman of the Pike County chapter for 19 years. Niebur was an avid waterfowler and put a lot of effort into assuring the success of the local conservation group. Niebur's widow, Jennifer, and son, Nick, donated several items to the auction to maintain Niebur's legacy. According to Brian Damon, chairman of the local unit, a portion of the proceeds from this

year's event will be used to complete a lifetime supporter membership status for Niebur. The top selling item in the auction was a 12 gauge Fausti shotgun that sold for $1,600. This particular grade of gun is manufactured in Italy by special craftsmen that incorporate engraving on the receiver and gold inlays of flying ducks. During the evening program the chapter also awarded a lifetime hunting license to William Kleinschmidt. The Don Irving family has made such a presentation to a young hunter for several years in memory of Irving, who was a life long supporter of Ducks Unlimited.

(Continued from A1) The board also approved a correction from the last road and bridge committee meeting that stated that the Detroit Township, 235th Ave., approximately on the Newburg Township line, replaced an existing culvert with a new 36” by 38’ elliptical CMP. The total cost of the project was $1,054.55 and the county paid $527.27, half of the total cost. A payment of

$1,000 was approved to Wendy McDonald, who helped write the CDBG Illinois “Midwest” Disaster Recovery Program Grant for Pike County from the 2008 flood. The Board also appointed Jeremy Thomas to the Rural Pittsfield Fire Protection District for a three year term ending the first Monday of May 2016. There was no closed session and the meeting adjourned at 8:03 p.m.

GPHS (Continued from A1) The program is open to freshmen through seniors, and the students play games and visit with the residents. Risley explained that she wants to do even more with the program, including matching the students up with a resident of Griggsville Estates to spend time with, similar to the Big Brother/Sister programs. “I plan on keeping it going and

making it bigger,” Risley said. She also wants the high school students to visit some of the elementary school classrooms to teach the younger kids about the elderly and some diseases that are involved with growing older, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. “The kids seem really open for it,” Risley said. “I think that it’s going to be a great thing for our kids and our community.”

American Pickers airs Nov.6 The American Pikcrs episode where the two famous scavengers visit Pike County will air on the History Channel, Nov. 6. While in Pike County in September, 2012, the two men visited John Yaskenko of Motor Car Investments

1944, he led his platoon across the border near Luxembourg, discovered a German intelligence post in the town of Maimuhle, and was seriously wounded. He returned to the United States in early 1945 and was sent to O’Reilly General Hospital in Springfield, Mo. where he was reunited with Martha and saw his 3month-old daughter for the first time. Lt. Boren was promoted to captain before leaving the Army in early 1946 and was awarded a Silver Star and Purple Heart. The squadron’s history states that “over his combat career, Lt. Boren led innumerable reconnaissance missions, returning with information of detailed accuracy and vital importance. His daring operations and superior performance set him off as outstanding. He was wounded in a gallant dash which brought him across the German border, first in the Third Army to do so. Until forced from combat by the gravity of his wounds, his record had served as an inspiration to the entire Squadron.” After the war, Henry received his bachelor’s degree from Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State) in 1949 and his Ph.D. in history from the University of Illinois in 1952. Over the next 8 years, he taught at Southwest Missouri State, the University of Nebraska, and Southern Illinois University. In 1960, Henry joined the history faculty at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where he taught ancient history for 31 years. He was known for his wry wit and for never ignoring his students’ spelling or grammar errors. Dr. Boren also served the university as secretary of the faculty for 15 years and wrote a brief history of faculty government at UNC. He authored several books including The Roman Republic (1965), The Gracchi (1968), The Ancient World (1976), and Roman Society (1977), and published numerous articles and reviews. He participated in the UNC-Hebrew University Archaeological Expedition to Tell Arad, Israel, in 1967 and was a Resident at the American Academy in Rome (1967–68). Henry and Martha were faithful Christians throughout their lives and were among the founding members of the Chapel Hill Church of Christ in the early 1960s. Later, they became members of the Cole Mill Road Church of Christ in Durham, N.C. They were known for their kindness, hospitality, and generosity to others. They loved their family, and like Martha, Henry especially loved being around children. They also enjoyed traveling around the country by car, making many trips to visit relatives in Illinois and elsewhere, and taking care of their vegetable garden and beautiful yard at their home in Chapel Hill, NC. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Cole Mill Road Church of Christ, in Durham, N.C. At a later date, his ashes will be interred in Greenpond Cemetery near Pearl.

Appropriate honor for Findley

Share your answer at

Last week's poll results The federal shut down is over. Will there be another?

Some people age more gracefully than others. And some, it seems, have elevated “senior citizenry” to an art form. Former U.S Congressman Paul Findley is one of those people. Elected to Congress from Pike County in 1960, Findley served his constituency in western Illinois through January 1983. In his retirement, he remains active in civic and political affairs, still pursuing his “before Congress” occupation as a writer. At age 92, he now resides in Jacksonville. But, due to his long and happy ties to Pike County, it is fitting that a new senior citizens housing development in Pittsfield be named in honor of Findley. He was in town Tuesday to symbolically “break ground” for the complex, which has already entered into the construction phase north of the old Higbee school on Jefferson Street. Developed under the auspices of the West Central Area Agency on Aging, the facility has a stated goal of allowing senior citizens to remain in their local area and “stay in their homes longer than what used to be available.” Findley embodies the resilient spirit of the seniors who will transition to a new phase of life at the Findley Place Apartments, continuing to add their wisdom and perspective to our community. Just as Findley has.


Prefers a familiar face It is an awful shame that your own doctor don’t go to the hospital to check you out. The ER doctor does it anymore. Why have a primary doc if he can’t go to the hospital when you need him? People doesn’t like every Tom, Dick and Harry lookin’ at them. They don’t know your medical history or anything about you. They say the hospital don’t make any money if your doctor goes. Why not? You still get charged for the medicine, the ER room, the test that is run. It is a crock… I would like to know what other people thinks and what can be done about it. PAT BAXTER New Salem, Ill.

County has options in the face of unions As a resident and voter in Pike County, I firmly support the Pike County Board’s refusal to knuckle under to union demands. Personally, I wish the board would prohibit the practice of collective bargaining within the county; it should declare Pike County a right-to-work zone and privatize all employees.

Yes, but not for a very long time.

Unions have done more damage to national sovereignties than Islamic terrorists. Wherever they gain a foothold, unions rape, pillage and plunder. In this state it is well understood that unions, the mob and Democrats work hand-in-hand. This tripartite arrangement has been in effect for over a hundred years. It is common knowledge that Illinois the worst run state in the nation. It is a hundred billion ($100,000,000,000) in the red. It can’t pay its bills on time. It has the highest unfunded pension liability in the nation. Because of this, Illinois’ credit rating has taken two hits in recent years. One bond sale was recently cancelled because of the downgrade. There is an option to unions; to strikes, to incessant court challenges and to union demands for more and better than everyone else. Wisconsin, in the not-so-distant past, elected a Republican governor and majority in their statehouse. They passed a law that prohibits the practice of collective bargaining within that state. You may recall the Democrats fled to Illinois in an attempt to stop the vote; they couldn’t and didn’t. Following this attempted coup, they went on the warpath to recall the governor. This, too, was unsuccessful. Today, Wisconsin is in much better financial shape than it was under the union yoke. You may recall, Illinois lawmakers pulled the same stunt several years ago when they galloped north. The Pike County Board should not sign any future union contract including

the one currently under contention. Let the current contract expire. The board should replace every county clerk with temps from Addecco or Snelling. That would be eminently preferable than listening to the whining crybabies and their threats of legal action or strikes. Defund every unionized department in the county. Cut every clerk’s hours to one day or eight hours per week. That is the workplace all across the nation. Temps are paid by the company they work for. Right off the bat, the county would eliminate all of the taxes, all of the vacation time, all of the sick days, all of the health insurance, all of the drama, and all of the needless hassles inflicted by unions against the people of Pike County. Where unions are active and entrenched, those municipalities, counties, states and nations inevitably find themselves strapped for cash. The longer reforms are put off, the more severe the union reaction is when instituted. It is the unions you see marching in streets in the U.S. and abroad. They are the ones protesting, carrying signs and shouting through bull horns. They are the ones fomenting riots. They are the ones that drive business from America. They drive states into bankruptcy and they will bankrupt Pike County unless they are stopped. Our public officials were elected to conduct county business. The presumption being they would use common sense and restraint in all matters; but especially, in fiscal concerns. What I read in this

paper leads me to believe the board IS acting responsibly. I commend them and I support them. I hope they carry through in the direction they are headed. They sign the checks; they can turn off the spigot or seriously restrict the flow. They can hire clerical temps. They can divest and privatize the ambulance department. They have options to explore and employ against unions. GERALD DICKEY Pittsfield, Ill.

Wants to support ‘made in America’ Just saw on TV a reminder about the stink regarding Olympic uniforms made in China! Recently, I extended my membership in NRA, then signed up for lifetime membership in ISRA. Result from both – received a cap and other material MADE IN CHINA! To me, this is just as unacceptable as the Olympic uniforms. My intention in joining these organizations was, partly, to verify my belief in and support of Americanism and the American worker! THOMAS C. MILLER Pittsfield, Ill.

IN KEEPING WITH THE MONTH My mother’s breathing was ragged. I held her left hand with each labored gasp. My dad, her husband of almost 59 years, gripped her right. As she breathed slowly, shallowly, my dad cried out, “Save a place for me in heaven.” Tears fell down the face of my sister, who sat at the foot of the bed. We watched 79 years of life and an 11-year battle with breast cancer come to an end. Our mother was gone. The pictures on the bedroom wall spoke to what was important to mom: family. Photos of each of her three children and their partners on their wedding days stood like sentinels overlooking her bed. The faces of her seven grandkids peered out from picture frames. A devoted husband looked on adoringly. Happy memories. I thought of my three daughters – all of

whom were born during mom’s long fight with cancer. Days before her death, they stood at their grandmother’s bedside and sang “Jesus Loves Me.” But what will they remember about their grandma? For me, June 2, 2013, always will be a day of sadness. Earlier this month, I donned a pink shirt in memory of my mother, Roberta Reeder. To be honest, sometimes I think all of the October pink ribbons, shirts and merchandise trivialize just how pernicious breast cancer really is. That said, I want my mother’s legacy to live on. One good thing about Breast Cancer Awareness Month is it gets us thinking about what we can do. Here are some thoughts: If you’re a woman, schedule your next mammogram today.

Give a cancer patient the most important thing that you can: you. Cook a meal. Sit by a bedside. Comfort a family member. There are lots of charities that help folks with breast cancer. Please donate or volunteer. Your help is needed. Folks from my hometown of Galesburg did all of those things for my family. It was most appreciated. A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. When mom first received her terminal prognosis four years ago, the family was devastated. Shortly after she was told the cancer was beyond cure, we had a birthday party for my eldest daughter. Mom wept while she sang “Happy Birthday.” Dad’s voice cracked while saying grace. My wife, Joan, thought of her mother, who died of breast cancer a few weeks before our wedding. At times, during this long battle with

cancer I was at a loss to know what to say to my mom. The only thing that seemed just right was, “I love you.” The chemotherapy left her bald. Sores developed on her feet. The cancer sapped her energy. Nausea haunted her for years. It was not an easy life. But it was one she endured without complaining. Some folks call that courage. I call it character. Despite her difficulties, mom always had a smile for her family. When folks ask what I remember most, that’s it. I love you, Mom.

One of my favorite creations in our world is that thing we call a “day.” You know, that 24 hours that comes to an end, only to begin another 24 hours. Now I know it doesn’t take much to intrigue me but this has always been something that I have given thought to. And if you think about it, it is one of the most refreshing things about life. In hunting or fishing it doesn’t matter what yesterday was like, today is a new day. It doesn’t matter that I never saw a deer yesterday, today will be better. It doesn’t matter if I didn’t catch any fish yesterday, today may be the day they turn on. Again, if you really think about it hunters and fishermen are men and women of optimism. If we were not we would never get up the next morning and do it all over again. Today is a creation that is meant to be one of promise and hope, not dread and despair. It is meant to be a time for leaving the disappointments and discouragements of yesterday and holding on to the possibility of something better. It is also an opportunity to forget about the failures of days past and embrace new mercy. There is a very important verse in the Bible that says this; “Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each day.” I really, really like that....... and you should too. Let me tell you why. Some of you right now, really messed up yesterday. You made a promise that you broke. You perhaps succumbed to temptation. The determination that you thought you had, left you yesterday. The self-control that had been your ally, suddenly abandoned you yesterday. But that was yesterday. Today is today. It is new. You do not have to bring the failures of yesterday with you today. God’s mercies begin afresh EACH day! You now have a choice; you can either run from God, ashamed of the failures of the past, or you can run to Him with a heart-felt confession, knowing that His faithfulness is great and that He has new mercy that He longs to show to you, afresh, beginning each and every day.

OP-ED This year's scariest Halloween costumes

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Pittsfield, Illinois

The Coonridge Digest: Freida Marie Crump

GREETIN’S FROM THE RIDGE They may be the most telling sign of the times: Halloween costumes. According to the sources who track this sort of thing, this year’s top outfits are a zipped-open hazmat suit ala “Breaking Bad,� the “Uncle Si� costume from “Duck Dynasty,� followed by the old kiddie favorites of The Pink Power Ranger, Ariel Sparkle, Superman Man of Steel, the Wolverine, plus a few that are actually sort of clever. These off-thewall costumes include suit a stitched together with Fifty Shades of Grey, and a fully dressed young lady holding a sign around her neck saying, “Nudist on Strike.� My most memorable Halloween occurred when I was a youngster and my father constructed a miniature outhouse with me inside. The thing was built with handles on the interior walls so I could pick it up and carry it around the neighborhood with my tiny Keds tennis shoes paddling away underneath. Just to make sure no one actually used it for a commode, Dad nailed the door shut. Halloween costuming was late coming to America as our Puritan forefathers weren’t much into celebrating the ancient Celtic festivals, but when the European immigrants began flooding onto our shores in the late nineteenth century, they brought with them the custom of dressing up and roaming the neighborhood in search

of money or treats. Young women often believed they could get the name of their future husband by doing tricks with yams or apple parings. It was believed by some that the future could be foretold on Halloween night by observing the way your pigs slept. The church has tried at various times to homogenize this silliness and it’s pretty much failed. I’ve yet to run into a youngster who was excited about All Saints Day. Herb and I won’t be dressing up this year. When our little Nissan pulls into the parking lot and we eventually get the energy to open the doors, then perform our geriatric aerobics trying to hoist our aging frames from the cars before waddling into the restaurant, we figure we’re characters enough. There’s no masking what ails us. But if we’re going to celebrate such a ridiculous holiday, why not go all out and make it truly scary? If you’re still rummaging around your closet for spooky ideas, I’ll suggest some of the following from this year’s Coonridge Halloween parade: Myron Morrison came dressed as the Obamacare website. He knocked on doors dressed in a cardboard cutout of the webpage and when you tried pushing his buttons he just stood there and did nothing. Some little girl came to our door . . . never did get her name, but she was one of the scariest of the evening. Her dad had removed the steering wheel from an old Chevy and she stood on our porch holding the steering wheel while texting on her cell phone.



Myron Morrison came dressed as the Obamacare website. He

knocked on doors dressed in a cardboard cutout of the webpage and when you tried pushing his buttons he just stood there and did nothing."

The Parsons, our next-door neighbors, went to Goodwill Industries and bought matching black suits. When we answered the door we saw their nametags: “IRS Audit Division.� When Elma Blackburn came trick or treating it took me a bit to figure out her costume. She’d dressed as an elderly lady, complete with support hose, walker and hairnet with a simple sign that said, “Please wait in line behind me while I buy my lottery tickets.� Joe and Linda Steinberg are always good for a laugh and although I don’t much get into the spirit of Halloween, I genuinely look forward to their yearly visit. Linda had told me they were coming as twins this year. I opened the door to the sight of Linda dressed in a biblical gown holding a sign that read, “The Second Coming!� Joe, her spiritual twin, was decked out in a Cubs uniform labeled, “We won the World Series!� Ted Leeman is our resident lunatic and as a result he often ends up making better sense that the rest of us. He

took the roof on his doghouse, cut a hole in the top, and stuck his head through it. No one had any idea what Ted was trying to say. Word on the street the next day said he’d dressed himself as the national debt ceiling. Mike Ritter cut the front out of a cardboard box, put his cat inside and told him to do nothing. Mike walked around the neighborhood with a sign around his neck that simply said, “Facebook.� Mike’s uncle Roy had a cat that was pretty much useless, scared of his own shadow and demanded to be fed every hour. He borrowed his nephew’s idea by putting his worthless cat in a box labeled, “Congress.� You ever in Coonridge, stop by. We may not answer the door but you’ll enjoy the trip. ■The imaginative commentary of Freida Marie Crump comes to us from Coonridge – a town that’s a lot like your own.


25 YEARS AGO: PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE COMES TO PIKE COUNTY 125 Years Ago Oct 25, 1888 Kinderhook is having its share of political speakings, especially democratic speakings by the old senator, Mr. Archer. A large crowd came from Barry, with the glee club, which sang some songs, as did the Kinderhook glee club. The evening ended with a grand torch-light procession, about 125 lamps being in it. The ladies of the Catholic church will give dinners in a room on the east side of the square the day of the republican rally, 25 cents. The Mississippi river is so low that the boats are going into winter quarters. Loads of grain and apples are lying along the river, but will hardly get out. A party of employees of the Barry woolen mill recently explored the cave in the bluff, back of the mill. The cavern is 858 feet by actual measurement. In some places it is large, and some passages very small. Our school teacher at Detroit left Friday evening for Pittsfield and returned Sunday with his bride, being a surprise to us all. The Pittsfield town board wisely decided to buy a new engine for the water work—one that can be used for electric light purposes if hereafter desired. 100 Years Ago Oct. 29, 1913 Jack Frost, one of the members of Winter & Co, was in Baylis last week on business. Rain fell Sunday, and turned to snow Monday morning, and continued to in large flakes all day. Had the ground been frozen, it would have undoubtedly have been covered to a depth of six inches on the level. The Beau Nots have sent out an announcement of a Halloween dance to be given by them at Bush’s hall Friday night. The music for the occasion will be furnished by the new Pittsfield orchestra, which is composed of George Thompson, bass viol; Harry Reineke, violin, Richard Conboy, piccolo; Charles Shaw, clarinet, and Mrs. Irma Thompson, pianist. Mrs. Turner Foreman gave a picture show party at which the ladies of the North Monroe Street club were guests. Each guest was given a bag of candy and nuts to eat between reels. Members of the Pike county lodge held a masquerade party at their hall. The ladies’ first prize was awarded to Misses Mamie Halpin and Fern Medaris. 75 Years Ago Oct. 26, 1938 Local races this November include Democrat Paul Grote and Republican Lee Capps for County Judge; Democrat Virgil Durham and Republican Leslie Wills for County Clerk; Democrat Fred W. Smith and Republican Joseph C. Shastid for County Treasurer, Democrat W. H. (Heinie) Williamson and Glenn Neese for Sheriff; and Democrat Ross Nichols and Ethel Seybold for County Superintendent of Schools. The Republican mass meeting held Thursday evening in the circuit court room showed the earnest interest Pike county voters are taking in electing a Republican ticket November 8. The speakers lashed the New Deal as “un-American and as an effort to place this country under a dictatorship,� and then outlined the Republican

stand for restoration of the American government to the American people. State’s Attorney Johnston of Pike county ruled that the county tax levy was not properly passed, and that nothing can be done until the December 12 meeting, to which the September meeting was recessed. Starting Nov. 1 a central office in the Hesley building will be shared by 16 township supervisors, who have employed Mrs. Ada Rukgaber as their secretary. Lynden Haskins has replaced Leon Preston, who recently resigned as superintendent of Pike county surplus foods. 50 Years Ago Oct. 30, 1963 Sandra Spellman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George V. Spellman of Pittsfield, was crowned queen of Pittsfield high school’s homecoming Saturday night. She was escorted by Bill Henderson, Saukee football captain. Beverly Capps was honor attendant and Patty Lynn Haun was maid of honor. Flower girls were Gina Frazier and Phemie Wilson. The Saukee football team defeated Beardstown 9-0 in the homecoming game Friday night. Rehearsals are being stepped up for the PHS allschool musical “Bye Bye Birdie.� Stars of the show include Nancy Watson, Joe Miller, Linda Taylor, Maurice Neese, Gloria Franklin, Ron Johnson, Mike McGann and Nancy Knapp. Cherryll Gaffney, a student at Illinois State Normal University, was home during the past weekend visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Gaffney and family. Jim Robinson, Ron Luster and David Brown, students at Western, were also home over the weekend visiting their families. The explanation for the taste and odor of Pittsfield water early this week is that “the lake is turning over.� It is related to warm days and cool nights. The Pleasant Hill Wolves remain unbeaten as they crushed Carrollton 38-0 Friday night at Pleasant Hill for their 7th win. Lee Hannel, who was recently discharged from the Navy, is now employed at McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis. Miss Lillian Martin, who is employed in Springfield, spent the weekend with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Martin. Army Reserve Pvt. Johnny R. Pennock, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley J. Pennock, is scheduled to complete eight weeks of advanced infantry training at Fort Polk, Lousiana, Nov. 22. 25 Years Ago Oct. 26, 1988 Becky Brosie, daughter of Burdette and Sue Brosie of Pleasant Hill was crowned the 1988 Pleasant Hill Wolves Homecoming Queen at the Wolves’ bonfire, Thurs, Oct. 20. Phil Bradshaw, vice-chairman of Illinois Farmers for Bush, has announced the appointment of Fred Bradshaw as Pike County coordinator of Farmers for Bush. Jim and Mable Reed hosted Gov. Michael Dukakis, Democratic candidate for president at their farm home. To satisfy the Secret Service they report that they had to remove all guns and ammunition from the house, and

put large kitchen knives out of sight. They reported that a staffer from New York, said, “Mable, I notice you have red hogs and white hogs. Are the red ones male and the white ones female?� An estimated 400 Democrats attended the Pike County Democrat Annual Fund raising dinner in the Legion Hall, one of the largest crowds in recent memory, according to one veteran political observer. U. S. Senator Alan Dixon and State Senator Vince Demuzio were the main speakers of the evening. Miss Helen Harman is planning to have open house at her home in Pleasant Hill Sunday, Nov. 6, starting at 2 p.m. Her home is the site of the former Shultz Academy, where students attended high school in the early 1920s. The 1926 class was the last to graduate there. 10 Years Ago Oct. 29, 2003 U. S. Marine Corps Major Craig Rush returned to the United States after service in Iraqi Freedom and other assignments. He was greeted by his family, including three young daughters, Marie, Molly and Michele, in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The Pike County Board has hired Pleasant Hill resi-

dent Gary Todaro as the county’s new zoning administrator. He was selected from 15 applicants, of which five were interviewed for the job. The Pike County Board may be looking at eliminating some polling places within the county. County Clerk Donnie Apps presented a proposal that would take the number of polling places in Pike County from 36 to 22. The Saukees defeated Camp Point Central 55 -22 Friday night to advance to the playoffs for the first time since 1996. Coach Don Bigley was carried off the field by his players after the victory. The 6-3 Saukees will play at Shelbyville next week. Jesse Schlieper, Jeremy Foster, Victoria Green and Joelle Schoenherr, all students at Pikeland Community School, were selected to perform in the District 4 band concert this Saturday at Western Illinois University. Jade Roseberry, Paige Halpin and Braxton Boren are among the stars of the classic play, “Arsenic and Old Lace,� which will be presented at Pittsfield High School Nov. 7-9. Compiled by Michael Boren

gets grant

Pike Press

Marion, a 1959 graduate of Barry High School, has enjoyed successful careers in music and science and as an author. During the program, O’Leary told about his mother’s childhood near Kiser Creek.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the hallways of Griggsville-Perry High School. Students have been busy working on sprucing up their school for this Saturday’s second annual GP Extravaganza. The Extravaganza is a collaborated effort between GPHS Team Impact, GPHS senior class,GPHS junior class and the elementary students of GriggsvillePerry Elementary. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. customers can enjoy shopping with the 28 vendors who have signed on to sell at this year’s craft show. “We are thrilled to have this many vendors for our second year of this show,” Leah Wilke, Show organizer, said. “Not only do we have quantity, but more importantly, we have quality vendors.” The craft show portion of the day will be set up through the hallways and in the small gym of the Griggsville school building, located at 202 N. Stanford Street in Griggsville. “Our students play a big role in the day, as they will be here to help vendors with loading and unloading their cars, catering to vendor needs during the show and also running the elementary basketball showdown. Events like these, help to develop leadership and organization skills and the students really enjoy the commu-

nity spirit that this event provides,” Wilke said. “We know we have good students here but it events like this that really allow them to shine.” Most of the vendors are bringing cash and carry merchandise so shoppers will have the opportunity to see the items first hand and also purchase them on the spot. Merchandise includes such items as vintage painted furniture, jewelry, homemade musical instruments, and homemade candy, rhinestone custom t-shirts and sweatshirts, local cookbooks, windchimes, jams and jellies, vinyl lettered windows, crafts and much more.

Monday, Nov. 11, Veterans' Day, the Lesters will be performing at Roodhouse at the Grace Center at 7. Mark and Pam Fisher, who have been entertaining in central Illinois for years, will be having a concert Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Rushville Church of the Nazarene, 621 East Washington Street, at 7 p.m.  Pam sang on the Illinois Country Opry in Petersburg and Mark was a regular on the Nashville Sound Country Opry in Mason City. And now they sing nothing but Southern Gospel, and make for a wonderful evening of christian entertainment.  Come on out and enjoy!

Christian Church, and as soon as the tickets come in, he will let you know so you can come in to pick up yours.

Kristina is the manager of an Olin Mills Studio.  Becky played secretary which Kristina needs.  Almost every night, they played Chicken Foot Dominoes.  A side outing was to visit the grave of one of Becky's immigrant ancestors who was born in Germany in 1726, came to America in 1752, fought in the Revolutionary War, and died in 1795.  On the way home, Mark and Becky came through Kentucky where they stopped to spend a night with Dave and Karen Detty.  Dave was the minister at the Detroit Christian Church in the mid to late 90's.  It was a pleasure to revisit old times and listen to Dave preach.

Happy birthday this week to Daylan Lemons! And to a friend in Versailles Celile Hurst! Here’s a Halloween poem for you to enjoy: “It’s Halloween” It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween! The moon is full and bright And we shall see what can’t be seen On any other night. Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls, Grinning goblins fighting duels, Werewolves rising from their tombs, Witches on their magic brooms. In masks and gowns we haunt the street And knock on doors for trick or treat. Tonight we are the king and queen, For tonight it’s Halloween! Have a Safe Halloween!

Mrs. Pennyweather (Alyssa Graham) dances with her son, Percy (Austin Fine).

Maddie Palmer as Gloria, tries to figure out Jethro and why she is attracted to him. Behind Jethro is Mrs. Stokely-Smythe (Samantha Clostermery) with Caylee Miller (stage manager) in the background.

But the final play of the game, when Saukee quarterback Wayde Smith was stopped within feet of the goal line for the two-point winning play, is not the play everyone is talking about. Instead Logan Thiele is the talk of the town. The 6-4 senior who will wres-

tle heavyweight for the Saukees grabbed an interception in Friday night’s game and lumbered 54 yards for the touchdown, the first-ever of his career. “They scored in the first quarter and had the ball about mid-field in the second quarter,” Thiele said. “I saw the quarterback throw it and saw the ball hit the guy who was blocking me in the back. The ball started to roll down his back and I just grabbed it.” Thiele said he never thought about making the touchdown, he only wanted to get as deep into Challenger territory as possible. “But somebody yelled ‘Ball’ and all of the Challengers started looking on the ground, I just took off. Everybody blocked for me,” Thiele said. “Everyone of our guys was behind me and wasn’t going to let me get tackled. It was perfect, especially since it was senior night.” Theile admitted the play was a lineman’s dream and gives his teammates full credit for their block-

ing and says the play changed the momentum of the game. “We just changed the way we played,” Thiele said. “We started playing more as a team and every play went the way it was supposed too If we made a mistake, we talked about it and didn’t let it get us down. We really played as a team after that.” Thiele’s touchdown was not the Saukees only score. Isaac Whitaker scored in the third as did Smith, but Illini West was scoring also. At the end of the third quarter the score was 22-21 Illini West lead. The Chargers added to the score with a touchdown and failed on the PAT. Pittsfield answered when Whitaker plunged into the end zone and came within one point of the tie. Since they were the home team, Pittsfield opted to go for two for the win, but according to Thiele, the Challengers read the play very well and stopped Smith just short of the goal line. The Saukee season ends at 5-4.

Western 3-peats as Pike County Conference champs By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press Western Lady Wildcat Coach Anna Hechler told her girls to always start strong and finish strong during the season. “I told them that should be our focus,” she said. “Earn our points and don’t worry about what the other team is doing on the other side of the net.” Her wisdom worked has her team won the Pike County Conference Championship for the third year in a row. “We didn’t always start strong,” Hechler said. ‘But we always were able to come back and finish strong.” Hechler said the tournament was a great tune-up for her team, who finishes the regular season at 14-17. “We go to Mendon for regionals,” she said. “It’s us, Payson, Brown County and Liberty.

y p p a H Safe ways to trick-or-treat What would Halloween be without trick-or-treating? For youngsters, so much of the fun of Halloween involves scouring the neighborhood with friends in search of candy. While children may have their eyes on the sweet prize, parents may be concerned about their little ones' safety.

injury, "Halloween is an important night for parents to be extra vigilant." But Halloween seems to lessen one's inhibitions, and wearing a costume and being hidden from others can encourage some revelers to engage in atypical and unsafe behaviors. To ensure everyone has a safe and fun Halloween, here are some safety tips to follow.

that other pedestrians as well as drivers will be able to see children.

the trick-or-treater should not enter. Let kids know they should only enter the homes of known friends, and even then they should only do so after getting permission from a parent.

Uses for leftover Halloween candy Halloween is certainly known for the spooky decorations that adorn homes and for the creative costumes children put on to canvas the neighborhood. But for many youngsters, Halloween is all about the candy. Rather than submitting to the call of the candy and sacrificing your dental health as a result, enterprising individuals can repurpose that leftover Halloween candy.

bags doled out at birthday parties. Keep the candy well-sealed to store away until it is needed to fill goodie bags. Add a few trinkets that tie in with the theme of your party, and you're all set. On a similar note, leftover candy can be used to stuff a pinata for a party. Pinatas are available in many different themes and styles, making any occasion ripe for a pinata.

Incentives Parents can store extra candy to use as rewards for good behavior. Many parents use sweet treats as rewards for children learning to potty train. Rewarding older children for a job well done cleaning up their rooms or as a special treat for scoring a good grade on a test also can be a way to put the candy to good use.

Baking Cookies, brownies and cake bars taste even better with peanut butter cups, chips and chocolate candies baked inside. Some candy can be frozen for later use in baked goods. Baked goods can be enjoyed by the family or used for bake sales for schools and other organizations.


The United States Census Bureau says that an average of 41 million trick-or-treaters venture out every year across the country, and roughly 106 million homes are solicited for candy and other treats on this holiday. Such a high number of people out on the streets increases the risk of injury, and it can be easy for kids to get lost as well. According to Kate Carr, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide, a network of organizations geared toward preventing unintentional childhood

n Go in groups. Children can be accompanied by their parents while older children should be encouraged to trick-or-treat in groups. Should an emergency occur, having a group of friends around enables someone to call for help or alert an adult. n Use a flashlight. When trickor-treating at night, take steps to improve visibility. This includes using reflective tape on costumes and carrying a flashlight or glow sticks so

n Walk on sidewalks. Wherever possible, trick-or-treaters should use sidewalks and crosswalks. Avoid walking in the street, where the risk of being hit by a car is considerable. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says twice as many kids are hit by a car while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year. n Avoid distractions. Trick-or-treaters should not be wearing earbuds or talking on a phone while trick-ortreating. They should be paying attention to their surroundings and using caution.

n Consume only factory-wrapped treats. Well-meaning people may hand out cupcakes or marshmallow cereal treats. The ingredients such people used and the safety of these treats cannot be confirmed, so it is best to stick with store-bought items instead. n Wear well-fitting shoes. Shoes that are uncomfortable or loose can cause children to fall and risk injury. n Adults should drive carefully. All drivers should slow down and anticipate children darting out into the roadways on Halloween. Drive slowly and pay attention to the roads.

There are many different ways to put Halloween candy to use so it doesn't go to waste or end up ruining teeth and waistlines.

n Do not enter homes. If an adult or even a youngster whom a child does not know offers entry to the home,

Bond reduced on man charged in fatal rollover near Hamburg By BOB CROSSEN Pike Press A man charged with reckless homicide following a fatal rollover of a four-door Ford F-250 truck near Hamburg Oct. 20 was released on bond Oct. 23 after the amount was reduced. The bond for Randy Clendenny, the driver of the vehicle, was initially set at $200,000. He voluntarily turned himself in Oct. 23 and bond was reduced to $100,000. Clendenny was driving the fourdoor truck when he lost control of the vehicle as he backed out onto

the highway resulting in the death of April L. McKee, 31-years-old. Six people were in the truck at the time of the rollover and the vehicle flipped approximately two-and-ahalf times before it came to rest on its passenger side in a cornfield south of Mozier Hollow Road. Sheriff Bill Heffington said McKee was partially out of the vehicle when the vehicle came to rest, suggesting she was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. It is not confirmed whether alcohol or drugs were involved in the cause of the crash as toxicology and autopsy reports had not been

received by the sheriff's office as of Monday afternoon. Only three of the passengers in the vehicle requested medical assistance, being Randy Clendenny, Leanne Clendenny and Milisha Y. Crowder. Other passengers – Cody M. Collard and Thomas L. McKee, husband of the deceased – were not listed as receiving medical treatment, Heffington said. The investigation is still pending while the sheriff awaits toxicology and autopsy reports. Clendenny has a Nov. 19 court date on the reckless homicide charge.

State money to benefit Barry IDOT yard Governor Pat Quinn announced last week capital investments of more than $1 million for construction projects in several counties including Pike. According to the governor’s office, one of the Department of Transportation depots in Pie County will receive updates under the plan which spends a total of $706,00 in four counitles. The mixing bins at the Barry Maintenance Yard will be renovated or replaced, including a new roofing system and exterior siding. There is no indication when the work will start. The projects are part of Governor Quinn’s $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! program, which will support more than 439,000 jobs over six years. Illinois Jobs Now! is the largest capital construction program in Illinois history, and is one of the largest capital construction programs in the nation.
