Pike seventh in deer North Pike qualified harvest for 2019 to perform life shotgun season saving procedures By NIKKI LIEHR Pike Press Hunters in Illinois harvested a preliminary total of 50,173 deer during the first weekend of the Illinois firearm deer season Nov. 22-24. Hunters took 58,836 deer during the first firearm weekend in 2018.Pike County ranked seventh in deer totals in November 2019 compared to other counties in the state: 1. Randolph: 1553 2. Adams: 1437 3. Jackson: 1422 4. Jefferson: 1251 5. Fulton: 1243 6. Williamson: 1220 7. Pike: 1174 “Statewide, there is no indication that there are less deer in Pike County,” said Tim Krumwiede with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). “Standing crops, such as corn and soybeans, were a factor with lower deer totals, as well as it being the latest opener we’ve had.” As to why the deer numbers have been in decline the last few years, Krumwiede states that only three counties in the state harvested more than last year, so it’s not something that IDNR can look at regionally and

“Standing crops, such as corn and sobyeans, were a factor with lower deer totals.”

Tim Krumwiede Illinois Department of Natural Resources say something is different. “When corn is standing, it reduces the number of deer people can see. That could be said for much of the state.” “Pike County hasn’t been first in deer harvest for firearm season in several years and that could be the fact that not many out-of-state hunters are coming here as they did before. I think we are seeing that a lot of hunters that used to be involved with firearm have switched to archery because of the crossbow, which has become more and more popular and archery season is longer than firearm season,” said Krumwiede. Illinois’ firearm deer season will conclude this weekend, Dec. 5-8.

By DAVID CAMPHOUSE Pike Press North Pike Fire/EMS has received their licensure and passed state inspection to perform basic life saving procedures. The licensure allows the North Pike Fire Department/EMS to perform lifesaving procedures while awaiting the arrival of Pike County Ambulance Service. “Basic life saving treatment includes addressing stroke, heart attack, or drug overdose,” EMS coordinator/North Pike fire chief Jeff Butler said. According to Butler, he has received a lot of good feedback from community members regarding the department receiving their new credentials. “We haven’t had this service in our area since 2007,” Butler said. “This credential allows us to provide care until Pike County Ambulance Service arrives.” Butler went on to say that the

department is fully equipped with life saving equipped with life saving equipment and medicine — including Narcan, designed to treat opioid overdoses. North Pike EMS funding is entirely dependent on donations. Butler said all donations should be addressed to North Pike EMS, PO Box 93, Perry IL 62362. Butler also indicated the department is always looking for additional members. Current members of North Pike EMS are: Jeff Butler- EMS coordinator/North Pike Fire chief, EMR; Amy Martin- assistant EMS coordinator for North Pike, Pre-Hospital Registered Nurse with Air Evac Lifeteam and Pike County Ambulance Service; Shelby Deeder-assistant EMS coordinator for Griggsville, EMT-B with Pike County Ambulance Service; Greg Martin-EMR; Marcus Rush- EMT-B with Pike County Ambulance Service; and Sam Zaerr- EMT-B.

Barry hears audit findings, approves motor fuels tax resolution By DAVID CAMPHOUSE Pike Press Barry’s city council carried out a quick meeting Monday, Dec. 2 — approving two motor fuel tax items and agreeing to purchase two new computers. Auditor Nick Doellman, or ABNG Accounting, noted no accounting issues with Barry’s accounting reports. Doellman complemented the town on its debt repayments. The council went on to ratify an engineering agreement, describing projects to be undertaken with the the motor fuel tax funds, and the council agreed on a resolution for maintenance funded through the motor fuel tax. Funds are to be used to seal prescribed streets in Barry, and the cost will amount to $31,340. The police report indicated that there were three arrests made in the last

month — one traffic arrest, an outstanding warrant, and a meth amphetamine arrest. Barry’s council approved the purchase of two new computers and their installation, amounting to roughly $2,500.

Our View SUCCESSION PLANNING

Building leaders in our communities We’ve all heard of the “brain drain� facing rural communities and its deleterious effects on rural institutions and towns. Never is “brain drain� made more clear then when a longstanding employee/member of an organization steps down and the scramble begins to replace them or reassign their duties. It is incumbent on private and public entities to come up with ways to pass on the organizational knowledge held by these individuals. Currently, organizations in Pike County are looking to replace postmasters and librarians. These jobs are important positions within our communities. Pike County school districts are also constantly on the hunt for qualified teachers and staff members in a variety of positions. Local organizations and their boards must work to groom internal candidates to assume the duties of retiring leaders. In the absence of qualified local candidates, these organizations must be prepared to carry out legitimate candidate searches, vet applicants thoroughly, and offer appropriate compensation. There is in fact a “brain drain� occurring throughout rural America. This broader problem does not excuse rural municipalities and organizations from grooming potential local leaders and attracting candidates from farther afield to fill vital positions within our communities.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Pike’s past gives insight into architecture TO THE EDITOR: “Pickings from Pike’s Pastâ€? article on 124 years ago, Nov. 14, 1894, wrote “Architect Dankmar Adler of Chicago has issued his report on the courthouse, and he thinks changes are necessary.â€? This is a real find for the Pike County Courthouse history. Thank you, Mike Boren, for the article. Our landmark should be researched for notes from this building committee. Architectural elements must be examined for the Adler and Sullivan style. I have asked “Landmarks Illinoisâ€? for their input on where we might locate more documentation. Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the draftsman at the firm of Adler and Sullivan. Attached are more articles about his architectural firm and their other landmark buildings.. Warren Winston, Pittsfield. Dankmar Adler was a German born American architect and civil engineer. He is best known for his fifteen-year partnership with Louis Sullivan, during which they designed influential skyscrapers that boldly addressed their steel skeleton through their exterior design: the Wainwright Building in St. Louis, Missouri, the Chicago Stock Exchange Building, and the Guaranty Building in Buffalo, New York. Dankmar Adler-Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dankmar__ Adler Dankmar Adler was the partner of architect Louis H. Sullivan. Together they designed more than 150 buildings in the post-fire building boom from 1880 to 1895. They gained fame especially with the high-profile Auditorium Building and Theatre project, which showcased Adler’s expertise in acoustic and structural engineering. At the time of the Auditorium commission, Adler was already known for his skill in creating excellent acoustics in the Central Music Hall on State Street. But the Auditorium project truly put the Alder and Sullivan partnership on the map, and for the next several years, it brought in prestigious commissions far and wide. The two housed their offices on the Auditorium Buildings 17th floor, where a young Frank Lloyd Wright worked as one of their draftsmen. In his memoirs, Wright would later sing the praises of both of his mentors. WARREN WINSTON PittsďŹ eld, Ill.

PICKINGS FROM PIKE’S PAST 100 YEARS AGO: PIKE COUNTY SUFFERS DUE TO COAL STRIKE 150 Years Ago Dec. 9, 1869 The incoming crops look well. Corn commands 75 cent per bushel. We have shipped about 10,000 sacks of wheat this season. In these parts, the more wheat the farmer had, the more he lost. Quite a fall from $2.25 to $1 per bushel. We are glad to hear a good report of our schools. Will parents do their duty and visit the school?

P. Washburn of Ottawa, Kansas, as architect to attend the completion of the courthouse. He has been here several days inspecting what has been done, and say that by the adoption of certain measures, the building can be made perfectly strong and safe. Some boys went up in the tower of the courthouse and ZHUHVXUSULVHGWR¿QGWKHSRlice after them. It is against order to go up there, and other boys and men will do well to take notice and govern themselves accordingly. There has been but one accident since the building started, and that the sufferer’s own fault, and the intention is to have the building completed without anymore, if making people mind their own business can effect it. The trustees of the village of Nebo revoked the saloon license a short time since, but a majority, including the president, reinstated the thing in a few days. A little boy of Jake Manley’s in Nebo was buried yes-

terday, having suffered fortyone days with typhoid fever. Mr. Nevius is doing a good banking business in Nebo. He and his family have added much to our society. A letter received by Dr. Hall, states that the surveyors of the new railroad to Perry will be at work this week, weather permitting. Another letter from Dr. Allen of Milton, states the citizens of that town and vicinity are subscribing liberally for a railroad, and he has no doubt but what they will raise $15,000 and the right-of-way. 100 Years Ago Dec. 10, 1919 Effective Monday, Dec. 8, WKH WUDLQV OHDYLQJ 3LWWVÂżHOG DW 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. will be discontinued on account to the shortage of coal.

Mom thought Edith portrayed women as stupid and inferior to men. I use to work with people from Russia, Ukraine, and Croatia. They didn’t have the same sense of humor as I did.

IDPH finds violations at Eastside By DAVID CAMPHOUSE Pike Press During a third quarter site survey, Pittsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eastside Health and Rehab Center was determined by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to be in violation of the Nursing Home Care Act and was assessed a fine of $2,200. According to IDPH the fine was doubled due to the violation of sections of the administrative code with a high risk designation. Eastside was found to be in violation of code outlawing abuse or neglect of residents of long-term care facilities. Specifically, IDPH found that at least one resident had developed bed sores. According to IDPH documentation, the patient bed sores were due to a failure on the part of Eastside staff to provide turning and repositioning. Patient names are not used in the IDPH documents to maintain confidentiality.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This failure resulted in (patient) R45 developing facility acquired unstageable pressure ulcers to his buttocks,â&#x20AC;? IDPH findings claimed. Another Eastside resident at risk of bed sores was found by IDPH to be reclined in a chair without positioning devices in the chair, even though the resident had a high risk for skin breakdown. When contacted by the Pike Press, Eastside Health and Rehab Center staff declined to comment on the IDPH report and findings. The approximately 1,200 long-term care facilities in Illinois are licensed, regulated, and inspected by IDPH. Each year, IDPH surveyors conduct about 10,000 surveys, including annual licensure inspections, complaint investigations and re-inspections. The Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24-hour a day Nursing Home Hotline (800-252-4343) receives nearly 19,000 calls and, as a result, staff respond to more than 5,000 complaints.

Clowers retires as Pittsfield postmaster By DAVID CAMPHOUSE Pike Press Kim Clowers retired as Piitsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postmaster effective Wednesday, Nov. 27. Clowers had served with the post office for 36 and a half years, and had served as Pittsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postmaster for 16 years. Her first position with the postal service was as a city carrier in Jerseyville starting in 1983. She worked in that community for 16 years. Clowers first became a postmaster in Chambersburg in 1999, and she also served in that capacity in Pearl. Postmaster Clowers started in Pittsfield in December of 2003. Clowers stated that the biggest changes to the postal service over the course of her career were automation and computers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a necessity,â&#x20AC;? Clowers said. The postmaster indicated that what she would miss the most about her position were the people with which she interacted on a daily basis.

KIM CLOWERS â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great community, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made so many friends,â&#x20AC;? Clowers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss all the employees the most.â&#x20AC;?

By DAVID CAMPHOUSE Pike Press Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s librarian, Becky Winner, is retiring. Winner has served as librarian for eight years, during which she has brought much positive change to the library. The librarian says she is proud of many of the organizational changes that have occured under her leadership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the kids area, of organizing the genealogy room, and making the arrangement and signage of the books more clear,â&#x20AC;? Winner said. Winner also stressed the importance of public libraries in rural communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people who wonder what is the use of a library,â&#x20AC;? Winner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have people here all the time without internet, filling out job applications, and some people say they just want to hold a book in their hands.â&#x20AC;? Patrons, too, agree that the Barry library is of great value. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For this size library, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best by far,â&#x20AC;? patron Dennis Bonifield said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to quite a few of them, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best library in the county.â&#x20AC;? Winner is particularly proud of engaging Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young people through her work at the library. The library operates a four-week June young readers program, and Winner has also organized programs designed to incentivize reading for children of all ages.

Western students learn about corn The Pike-Scott AITC program visited Western Elementary to teach the third-graders all about corn through a video as well as some fun hands-on activities. The students learned how corn is grown and what types of food products contain corn. They explored the different types of corn and their many uses. Students completed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parts of the Corn Plantâ&#x20AC;? worksheet, where they colored and labeled parts of a corn plant (roots, leaf, ear of corn, husk, tassel, stalk, and silk). The students made corn origami crafts by folding construction paper into the shapes of an ear of corn; an activity brought to the Pike-Scott AITC program by the Illinois Corn Growers Association. They also enjoyed a cornthemed snack: candy containing corn syrup as a sweetener or corn starch as a thickener, while Agriculture Literacy Coordinator, Rachel Smith,
