No motorist exempt from Scott’s Law By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press The Illinois State Police, joined by nearly all the state’s attorneys in District 20 and several members of municipal, county and state law enforcement officers, joined together Tuesday morning to urge motorists to slow down, move over.

“Slow down and move over to the far lane…Use common sense.”

Lt. Brian Anderson Illinois State Police The event, held on the parking lot of District 20 Headquarters in Pittsfield, was in response to three Illinois State Troopers being killed while on duty since the beginning of the year. “We have a common goal,” Lt. Brian Anderson, ISP spokesman, said. “That is for all of us to go home at the end of our shift.” The move-over law, most commonly know as Scott Law,

requires drivers to slow down and if possible move over when approaching a stationary vehicle with flashing lights alongside a roadway. Anderson said it is not just police vehicles, but firetrucks, ambulances, tow trucks, cars with flashers because of car trouble, anything that might be stopped along side the roadway “It is becoming farming season, construction season and there are going to be more and

more reasons to be attentive,” Anderson said. “Slow down and move over to the far lane. If traffic prohibits you from changing lanes, be extra attentive and watchful. Use common sense.” Anderson said four steps could save someone’s life. “Slow down, check your blindspot, signal and move over,” he said. According to ISP trooper Steven Scheureck, all of the

state’s attorneys in District 20 which includes Adams, Brown, Pike, Schuyler and Scott, have said they will cut no deals with anyone who violates Scott’s Law. Scott County State’s Attorney Mike Hill announced last week, Scott’s Law violators would be prosecuted and no supervision offered. Pike County State’s Attorney Zachary Boren announced Monday, Scott Law violators in

Health Department adapting to health care changes By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press The Pike County Health Department says the world of health care is often a moving target and they are trying hard to keep up with the changes. One of those changes could be an affiliation with Southern Illinois University (SIU) and the Federal Quality Health Care (FQHC). “We applied for a grant in February and although we won’t hear for sure until August, it looks promising,”Anita Andress, administrator of the PCHD, said. That is not entirely good news. The grant is based on need and Pike County scored the most points in the field of applicants, meaning Pike is more underserved in health resources than other areas in the state. “We got a 19 out of 20,” Andress said. “Most counties applying got 15 or 16.” The grant would be for $650,000 for the next two years. Acceptance of the grant means

“We need a more stable funding source and this affiliation with SIU will give us that.”

Anita Andress, administrator Pike County Health Department the PCHD will turn the operations of its dental clinic over to SIU/FQHC. It will also allow the Mental Health Centers of Western Illinois to move into the current PCHD building at the corner of Franklin and Adams streets in Pittsfield. “PCHD and MHCWI will continue to be separate from the SIU FQHC New Access Point if the HRSA grant is awarded to SIU. The Dental Clinic will become part of the SIU FQHC,” Andress said. “All three agencies will all be located in the current PCHD building at 606 W. Adams.” Andrew said the PCHD will continue to offer all other environmental health, public health,

and home health services. The grant and subsequent move by MHCWI will allow the agency to offer more services. “Much-needed mental health services are not available in this area,” Andress said. “Mostly because of lack of funding. The grant will allow more psychiatrists and mental health professionals.” Also, the grant will bring in new primary care physicians. “We are not here to duplicate the services already being offered,” Andress said. “We just want to fill in the gaps.” Andress pointed to the lack of an ob/gyn in the county. “I’m not saying we could get

Pike County will face a minimum of $500 in fines plus court costs and no supervision. “That will come to a little under $1,000,” Boren said “Judgment will enter on the driving record.” Scott’s Law was named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway Dec. 23, 2000.

Two men accused of murder appear in court

By BETH ZUMWALT PIKE PRESS The two men accused of murder, in separate incidents last month, were in court Tuesday morning. Charles Allen, 44, Louisiana, Mo., was the first to appear. Allen is charged with killing his ex-father-in-law, Don Collard, late evening, March 25 at Collard’s home in Pleasant Hill. Allen had appeared in court March 28 and said he wanted to hire his own attorney. At Tuesday’s hearing, Attorney Charles James of St. Peters Mo., appeared and asked to be recognized as Allen’s attorney. The court agreed and Allen will remain in jail with no bond set until at least May 7 at 1 p.m. when a preliminary hearing is scheduled. William Poor, 33, Pittsfield, appeared shortly after Allen. Poor is charged with murdering Josh Witherbee at Witherbee’s apartment in Pittsfield March 25. Witherbee was found severely beaten the morning of March 26 and was taken to Illini, transferred to a Springfield Hospital and died March 29. Poor had been charged with aggravated battery and obstruction of justice until Witherbee’s death when two counts of murder with intent to kill were added. Poor has been held on $300,000 bond

Pleasant Hill ready for zoning

Obituaries in this issue: Booth, Cooper, Fee, Witherbee.

By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press After 15 months and countless meetings to work on a zoning map for the village of Pleasant Hill, the finished product was expected to be OK’ed at last night’s village board meeting. The map looks complex but divides the town into Business 1, Business, 2, Agriculture, Residential 1 and 2 and industrial. R1 is the bulk of Pleasant Hill’s map with a few businesses grandfathered into those areas. “B1 is retail, like restaurants, service industries, like beauty and barber shops; shops that sell merchandise,” Fred Ruzich, Pike County Zoning administer, said. “B2 contains the same thing in B1 but expands it. Everything considered B1 can be in a B2 zoned area but not everything B2 can be in a B1.”

Local taxidermist wins top award

By SHELBY STROEMER Pike Press Local taxidermist Jeremy Priest of Longbeard Taxidermy in Pittsfield, was recently recognized for something he does best. Priest attended the 40th annual Illinois Taxidermist Association competition held in Decatur March 22-24 and took home the top prize in the turkey category.

“I had at least four weeks involved in that.�

Jeremy Priest taxidermist

In this competition, the birds are judged from head to toe on the exact anatomy of how similar it looks to how it was alive. The birds were scored with sheets analyzing the symmetry, shape, bill, beak, eyes, neck, tail, and other features of the bird. Priest received the designation of state champion in this category. This is Priest’s second state championship award with a wild turkey, also being honored in 2016. “There were about 80

A physician would be in the office based on a plan.� Andrew said currently the dental clinic is solvent because of the number of grants the clinic receives, but those are drying up. “We used to get free product from Oral Health of America,� Andress said. “But they have shut down. Illinois Health Care gave us $400,000 to start the clinic but they have moved their focus to mental health. We need a more stable funding source and this affiliation with SIU will give us that.� In addition to providing extra dollars for the dental clinic, Andress said SIU will be able to recruit dentists and staff. “When we interviewed for

dentists, we had one girl tell us No because she would be the only dentist and she wanted to work with somebody who had experience before she struck out on her own. Now we will have that.� Andress said. SIU and FQHC will most likely insist on more security at the building including locked doors, maybe with a buzzer for entry, similar to what the schools in the county have now. “They will also want us to have a protocol on record in the event of a lockdown,� Andress said. The dental clinic will lease the PCHD’s equipment and will also pay for floor space as will MHCWI. “They will pay a percentage of the utilities, also,� Andress said. “And the cost of a receptionist.� Negatives include the PCHD losing its conference room to make extra office

Pleasant Hill School Board rehires staff By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press The Pleasant Hill School Board has rehired all of this year’s staff and granted tenure to three full-time teachers who have been on the job four years. The actions were taken during the April 8 school board meeting. Granted tenure were: Nancy Pruitt, Ashley Borrowman and Christine Shumann. Teachers rehired were: Jenna Peebles, Michelle Spann, Michelle Baalman and Jenna Simonson. Paraprofessionals were also rehired. Those include: Melissa Hansen, Jane Hubbard, Diane Carton, Sabrina Garza, Tori Hartwick, Mary Lou Hausmann, Kaylynn Clendenny, Kim Gregurich, Charla Adams, Karla Abney, Alli Clowers and Kristin Turner. In other personnel matters, board accepted the resignation of Kayla Smith, first grade teacher. Earlier in the meeting, the board declined to take action on two matters, deciding to leave those decisions up to the new, incoming board. “Our IMRF rates are up,� Ron Edwards, superintendent of the district, told the board. “IMRF has come up short because of some of their investment losses.� The amount is approximately $1,800 and IMRF is offering the district the chance to spread it over three years or pay it all upfront. “There is a chance it is a one year thing,� Edwards said. “But even if it is and we opt to do the payments, we will still

have to make them.� After the meeting, Edwards said his concern was that the situation will not be a one year thing and the district will owe even more money next year if they opt to go with the payment plan. “This happened once before and their investments did well the next year and they lowered the rate back to where it was,� Edwards said. “But you never know.� The board also tabled Edwards’ request to fix the drain near the gymnasium at the high school. “In the winter we get a lot of ice puddles in the bus circle,� Edwards said. “The original design of the building had the drain come down, go under the building and out the back. That hasn’t worked for several years and we used to have flooding in the lower hallway.� Stop-gap measures have stopped the inside flooding, but the parking lot is still an issue. Edwards said CASCO has offered to cut away the asphalt and install an 8-inch drain tile near the cafeteria for $11,625. The board agreed something needed to be done but left the decision up to the new board. The board will also install air-conditioning at the high school a few rooms at a time. Edward said he would like to start with the rooms that have a western exposure first. Those would include three rooms on the west side, the home ec room and the library. The board would like to do four rooms at a time until the project is completed.

(Continued from A1) chairmen of both the Pike County Board and the Pike County Zoning Board, The zoning board will give notice of a public hearing and will meet to consider the petition to institute zoning in Pleasant Hill. The recommendation of this board will be forwarded to the Pike County Board for final action and approval. “We are tickled to death they are getting their own zoning,� Andy Borrowman, president of the Pike County Board, said. “Pittsfield, Barry, Griggsville and I think Perry has their own zoning and it takes some of the burden off the county.� Village officials are dismayed by the fact the project took so long but controversy among citizens who did not want to abide by city ordinances but still wanted village amenities took a while to work out. Borrowman said the process of sending the map through the necessary channels could be lengthy.

“This is farming season and a lot of the members of those boards are farmers,� he said. Both the planning commission and zoning board meet only monthly. That could spell trouble for Pleasant Hill’s newly-passed liquor ordinance which is in the process of being written, but will most likely declare that liquor can only be sold in a business district and until the map is finalized there are no districts defined. Jim Leeds, village president, said in an interview last week that the board would try to get an ordinance together as soon as possible but didn’t address the possible delays in the channels the zoning map will have to travel. “We will address it as quickly as possible. I think the driving force behind this was to have liquor at the Pike County Fair and we will try to have it done by then, if possible,� Leeds was quoted as saying. The Pike County Fair is the third week of July.

Raising money to make a change By SHELBY STROEMER Pike Press For an American Government class held at Pittsfield High School, two boys have taken it a step further and created a fundraiser. The money raised will go toward getting new basketball rims at Lowry Park. Jonathan Thomas and Jack Palmer have set up jars in homeroom classes to collect money. “We’re always at Lowry and we don’t like the rims down there now,� Thomas said. The goal amount of money to reach for the new rims was between $80 and $120. The winning homeroom to raise the most money will receive a pizza party. Earnings were checked Wednesday, April 10 with a total of $176.32 collected. The goal was reached for the new rims.

Passing stopped buses could mean higher fines

By SHELBY STROEMER Pike Press A newly proposed bill in the Illinois House has been introduced to keep children on buses safe. House Bill 1873 wants to double the fines of people who pass stopped buses. “We don’t see it often. We get a few complaints every once in awhile and we always try to follow up on them the best we can,� Pikeland

space, lack of parking and a few other logistical issues that Andress feels can be worked out once the department is assured of the grant. Adams and Morgan counties already have been designated Federal Health Care Centers as have other health departments in the state. Andress said health departments in Illinois are mandated to oversee food, water, sewer and infectious diseases. “Those are the things we are mandated to do,� Andress said. “With funding sources drying up, we have had to discontinue programs that were successful in our area, such as the diabetes program. It was a very successful support program but we had to discontinue it because there was no money for an elective program. This grant could help us improve our offerings and take some of the financial burden off of us.�

Assistant Superintendent Mark Amann said. Under the bill, the first offense fine would go from $150 to $300, the second offense fine would go from $500 to $1,000. The House passed the measure April 11 by 74-16. Several members showed concern on the fine raise. Others thought the fine was more than fair. Jacksonville Republican C.D. Davidsmeyer said a driver’s

first violation of the law should be enough education. “Once is too many times,� Davidsmeyer said, referring to passing school bus offenses. Another GOP representative commented that other states have much stricter laws when it comes to school buses. The House Bill 1873 changes only the fine structure for school bus violations. Other provisions won’t

change. The current law says drivers have their license suspended three months after first offense, and a year after second. A restricted driver permit can be applied for if this happens. The permit maybe applied for at the Secretary of State’s office and will allow them to drive to and from work. The bill had its first reading with the Senate April 12.

(Continued from A1) since being arrested March 26 but Pike County State’s Attorney Zack Boren announced Tuesday in court he intends to file a motion asking for an increase in bond, since the murder charges have been added. Keisha Morris, public defender, asked to withdraw as Poor’s attorney, citing a conflict in interest, saying there were potential witnesses in the case that either were or had been her clients. McCartney granted her request and appointed Ryan Schnack of Quincy to represent Poor both on the present charges as well as charges resulting from a 2017 felony domestic battery charge. Poor’s next appearance will be Tuesday, April 23 at 1:15 p.m. when he will make his first appearance with his new attorney. Members of both the Collard and Witherbee families attended the hearings.

Correction

The outcome of the Pleasant Hill school board election as described in last week’s Pike Press was not correct. Dan Peebles with 245 votes, and based on place of residence, defeated Heidi Doyle for a seat on the board. In uncontested elections, Braden Damon and incumbent John Picone were chosen for board membership. Votes cast in Calhoun County in the school board race have not yet been officially reported but are not expected to change the overall outcome of the election. Pike Press regrets the error.

Our View THINKING POSITIVE

Pike Health Department presses on The Pike County Health Department hasn’t had it easy. With available grant funds drying up, the agency has been forced to make tough decisions. Staff and programs have been reduced. Hours of service have been limited. Yet, by state law, the department is required to work and provide services in the areas of waste management, food safety, infectious diseases and water safety. So, of course, they do, keeping Pike Countians healthier in the process.

While fulfilling these core responsibilities, the PCHD has also spent time thinking of ways to be creative. Through their efforts, a “safety net� dental clinic came to Pike County. Desperately needed dental care was provided to both adults and children who could not afford it on their own.

But, what was once hailed as a winning solution to a widespread problem, has hit a snag. Funding for this program is drying up, too.

PCHD is working on a solution, a partnership with another organization better able to access funds. If all goes as planned and an anticipated grant is received, the department’s existing office space will be modified to accommodate the new arrangement. In fact, a third party may also be moving to the same location, creating some questions about parking and accessibility. But the Health Department thinks the hurdles can be overcome and we certainly hope they are correct. PCHD has been a tremendous asset to Pike County over the years, touching the lives of countless residents. Despite the difficulties presented by the changing face of healthcare, PCHD remains true to the mission. In a letter on this page, their enthusiasm is positively bubbly while encouraging us all to attend an upcoming health expo and learn more about a healthy lifestyle. Yes, Pike County Health Department has experienced some setbacks, but they continue to provide a host of needed services in the county. For this they are truly appreciated.

When looking at drugs, look at alcohol ďŹ rst April is the month to look squarely at the problem of harmful drugs in our nation and how we might do better at addressing the problem. Children in our society are seeing the damages of harmful drugs, but are they truly being encouraged to not use them? It has long been known that alcohol is the gateway drug that often leads to other drug use. This liquid drug affects the brain quickly in harmful ways when ingested by children and adolescents. The World Health organization says there is no safe amount of alcohol to the developing child or adolescent brain. The brain is still developing in people into the early- to mid-twenties. Health organizations do not encourage people to ever drink beverage alcohol at all, even when the brain is fully developed. Even wine, with its supposed help to the heart with resveratrol from the skin of the grape, has its downside of alcohol’s poisoning effects. It is noted that peoSOH ZKR GR QRW WDNH WKHLU ÂżUVW drink until their brain is fully

developed have less chance of becoming a problem drinker. Are we doing the best we can do as a nation on this problem when alcohol advertising is VR SUROLÂżF HVSHFLDOO\ DW DWKletic events such as big league baseball games and the football extravaganzas televised in the height of winter? When we drive through the main part of town and the windows of taverns are covered with full length/full width murals pushing alcohol products, do our children deserve to see such tantalizing coverage of a harmful product? It is amazing that a scare such as the romaine lettuce recall within the past year, in which packages of romaine were removed from grocery shelves everywhere, received such critical attention.

TODAY’S COMMUNITY COLLEGE

hen Ronald Reagan declared April as Community College month in 1986, John Wood Community College was in its adolescence – just 12 years old. Now celebrating our 45th year, we have transformed into a community partner and Trail Blazer in education. John Wood was ranked by SR Education Group as the best online community college in Illinois, rated in the top 10% of the nation’s community colleges based on student success indicators by CNN/Money, and is currently one of a handful community colleges in the state to show enUROOPHQWJURZWKLQWKHODVW¿YH years. This transformation didn’t happen by chance. Such positive outcomes took years of dedicated people and planning all focused on growth and continuous improvement, serving our communities, and facilitating student success. The college’s growth and success is also a result of an unwavering commitment to our mission to enrich lives through

learning. That means making education accessible to ensure everyone can learn, apply knowledge, and make their lives and communities better in the process. Our mission is alive and well and I would like to offer some thoughts on what that looks like in today’s world. Today’s community colleges: QProvide an affordable path to a bachelor’s degree.

PICKINGS FROM PIKE’S PAST 10 YEARS AGO: TWO ELECTIONS DETERMINED BY COIN FLIP

150 Years Ago April 22, 1869 The Storm—Our constituents have been victimized again. On Sunday certain portions of Pike County were deluged with rain. Bridges, culverts, and fences were swept away, and not a few acres of un-virgin soil were carried off to join with the turbid waters of the Mississippi. On Monday another rain and the highest of winds. Fences were thrown down by miles, houses moved from their foundations, and chimneys overthrown. The latest dispatches represent Sunday’s storm as universal, the damage thereby of great amount. Mail Service—Of all the villainous mail arrangements that ever a county was affected with, Pike has the worst. For instance, Kinderhook LV  PLOHV IURP 3LWWVÀHOG Mail a letter from that place Thursday, and it lies two days in Griggsville and two days in Barry before it gets here.

My name is Howard Elliot. I am the son of Dorothy (Halpin) and Keith Elliot. Dorothy is the daughter of George R Halpin, born 1892 in Pike County, who is the son of John C. and Belle Halpin. Belle Halpinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maiden name was Belle Dyer. (I have) a photocopy of a picture taken circa 1910 of my grandfather George Halpin standing in front of a wagon bearing the name of â&#x20AC;&#x153;F.K. Peters Groceries phone 33.â&#x20AC;? I am hoping to locate any â&#x20AC;&#x153;kinfolkâ&#x20AC;? from the Illinois area, as well as learn a little about Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grocery. According to the 1910 United States census, there were 10 Halpins living in the John and Belle Halpin household. The 10 people were Belle (age 52), John (age

52), Maime (age 19), James (age 18), Estel (age 14), William (age 10), Mike (age 8), Juanita (age 6), and Rosella (age 4). Additionally my grandmother was Mabel Robinson, from Nebo. the 1910 US census indicated she is the daughter of Francis A. Robinson (age 42) and Margaret L. Robinson (age 4). Listed in the household with Mabel is Edna L. Robinson (age 19), Ethel F. Robinson (age 13), Russell O. Robinson (age 10), Carl O. Robinson (age 7), and Margaret F. Robinson (age 4). My grandfather George and grandmother Mabel moved to Gooding, Idaho between 1916 and 1920. He married Mabel March 16, 1916. His brother William also came to Idaho. We have no information regarding the remaining Halpin or Robinson family. HOWARD ELLIOTT P.O. Box 193 Lewiston, ID 83501

Apologizes for previous letter I would like to apologize for the mistakes that have been pointed out to me about the letter to the editor I wrote last month. At the time, I was under the impression that I was voicing my questions and opinions in a constructive manner. Apparently, I was not. I will try, in the future, to remember my place. Again, I apologize to all who have been affected by my serious lack of judgment. I hope that any ill feelings towards me about my views will not affect the working relationship with my husband and our business with the health department. SHEILA HOLCOMB Pleasant Hill, Ill.

HEY, DOC, THINK SMALL

used to work for a chemical company that was a producer of narcotics. One of my job duties was to hook large 4-inch hoses to pumps.They were big, made of chemically resistant material, and very heavy. One time I was removing a hose and hurt my tendon in my right elbow while picking it up. The company was so large that it had its own doctor on site. I went and visited him and he sent me to a specialist in the west part of St. Louis County. The specialist informed me heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to give me a shot in the elbow and if that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to reattach the tendon. When he told me this I immediately began to sulk because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like needles, but especially in an elbow joint.

He had me lay my arm on my chest and then inserted the needle. If I could have climbed the wall, I would have. The pain was excruciating as he began injecting cortisol into the tendon. I sat up and was covered with sweat. The doctor apologized profusely about the pain but assured me it was necessary. Two weeks went by and the pain was the same. I was so weak in that arm I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even hold a cup of coffee. I went back to the specialist and he informed me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to get another shot before surgery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought you said shot not shots,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, we have to do more than one,â&#x20AC;? he stated. I began to sulk again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last time you liked to

have killed me,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to make it easier this time,â&#x20AC;? he stated. He had me lay my arm across my chest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little stick,â&#x20AC;? he said. He gave me the shot and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware he was done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, Doc, that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt at all,â&#x20AC;? I said, smiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I know, I used a smaller needle this time,â&#x20AC;? he said. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often told people, â&#x20AC;?Lay all the needles out in front of me and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say give me the little one on the end.â&#x20AC;? That was the last shot I had to take. They surgically repaired my arm. â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Q John Ottwell graduDWHG IURP 3LWWVILHOG +LJK School in 1984 and lives in 6KUHZVEXU\ 0R +LV ZHEsite is www.FinishyourstoU\FRP

He and his wife went on several cruises including Alaska, Iceland, the Caribbean and the Panama Canal.

Bruce Fee â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are those who will lead us, protect us each step of the way, from beginning to end, for each moment forever each day. Such a gift has been given, it can never be taken away.â&#x20AC;? Bruce Lewis Fee was born on August 2nd 1956 in Pittsfield, Illinois to Edwin Fitch Fee and Hazel â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ireneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Lewis) Fee. The youngest of four children, Bruce was raised on his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy farm, Barryview Farm, in Barry, Illinois.

Bruce was a Master Mason and also served on the State Executive Committee for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls in Illinois as the Financial Advisor. When not working or par-

ticipating in his childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, Bruce lent a helping hand to those in need and always tried to assist people whenever possible.

Hope you will all enjoy: ITALY -- We visited Palermo, Sicily, Italy which is over 2,700 years old. The tour bus climbed up Mount Pellegrino to the Shrine of Saint Rosalia, the Patron Saint of Palermo, the biggest shrine in Italy. Later in Palermo we visited the Palermo Cathedral which includes the Chapel of Santa Rosalia, an embellished altar of solid silver which contains the relics of the Princess Rosalia. Other sites included the Mondello Bay resort area, Massimo lyric Opera House - the largest in Italy, the Fountain of Shame (controversial even back in 1574), the Palermo Cathedral, the Neoclassical Politeama Theatre and the triumphal arch leading to the oldest street in the city. Along the streets were venders selling beautiful flowers and fresh fruit. A must do is sampling an authentic Cannoli at one of the many open-air cafes. Our ship docked in Civitavecchia and we took a bus to Rome. On the ride there we saw many farms with cattle and sheep. Once in Rome we were awed by the ancient buildings and architecture such as the Palace of Justice

By WYVETTA DAVIS 217-285-4880 w9yti@irtc.net

(Supreme Court), Castle of the Holy Angel, St. Angel Bridge, the Colosseum - the largest amphitheater ever built and it was built in 70-80 A.D.!! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to comprehend anything that old. Near the Colosseum is a park that was the former Circus Maximus chariot racing grounds and the triumphal arch of Constantine and Palatine Hill, the centermost hill of the famed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven Hills of Rome.â&#x20AC;? The bus tour encompassed many jaw dropping sites throughout the city including the Altar of the Fatherland Monument, fountains, narrow very busy streets. At Vatican City, its own country, we saw St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basilica, St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Square, Vatican Museum, and the Sistine Chapel. We still cannot believe that one! MONACO -- From the dock at Savona Italy our bus drove on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;highway of flowersâ&#x20AC;? where we saw hundreds of greenhouses and farmed terraces on the hillsides and on the other side the Ligurian Sea, a branch of the Mediterranean. It was a breathtaking drive to Monaco which was one of the prettiest, immaculate and wealthy places we visited. Monaco is the second smallest country in the world after Vatican City and is bordered by France and the Mediterranean Sea. We had a beautiful view of the French Rivera and skyscrapers that you can in for $68,000 a sq. ft.!! Noted here is the Oceanographic Museum where Jacques Cousteau served as Director, Grace Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pink home, beautiful flowers, the resting place of Prince Rainer and Princess Grace (Kelly) Rainer inside the St. Nicholas Cathedral, the Princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palace where we saw the Changing of the Guard, Sainte-Devote Church, the Palace of Justice, Port De Fontevielle, the Italian Grimaldi Castle. In Monte Carlo -- the Fairmont Hairpin Curve and the streets where the Monte Carlo Grand Prix takes place, Monte Carlo Casino and gardens, Casino Square and Hotel Paris. Parked in front of the casino were cars such as the McLaren which starts at $200,000 and can go as high as 1.1 million! On the way back to the cruise ship, our bus was stopped for several hours at the Italy border due to the France â&#x20AC;&#x153;yellow jacketâ&#x20AC;? protest but we were rewarded with some alternative scenery and a beautiful sunset. (Be sure and read next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column to see where this trip will go from here.) Whenever you see names on either the Prayer Request list or the Birthday / Anniversary list that should no longer be on there, please let me know so those names can and will be deleted. God bless and have a great week!!! Would appreciate any news you have to share.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter! Joyce Kurtz from Louisiana, Mo. had her birthday at Big Muddy BBQ in Hannibal on Friday night and we were all there. Happy Easter to everyone from me! My dinner is

going to be for my family Saturday at the Lions Building. There will be an Easter Egg hunt and dinner. May God bless you and have a good day!

My son Michael called and told me of an adventure he had this week. He was getting ready for work and all of a sudden he had a phantom

pain in his big toe. It was bad enough he stopped and took off his work boots and socks, and he could see nothing. He drove an hour to work, hiked a trail, and returned to his truck to get a camera. When leaving his truck, a pain struck the side of his foot. He again took off his shoes and socks but this time he found a wasp in his boot. Since it had stung through his sock, it did not get him bad.

Spurs and Feathers enjoys success

The Pikeland Spurs and Feathers 30 year wild turkey dinner program was a great success with the enthusiastic support of some 160 attendees. The program included recognition of Lew Wade, founder of the local chapter, along with current and former committee members. Our local committee has the distinction as one of the four statewide chapters that has a 30-year or longer record of continuous existence. The annual scholarship was awarded to Isaac Shaw, son of Steve and Teresa Shaw of Pittsfield. Shaw, a senior at Pikeland, has a great

school record and has been involved in numerous service programs. He intends to study an agriculture venue in college. Bill Ferguson, former school administrator, and members of the local wild turkey committee presented Shaw with his award. The local chapter is expected to generate good revenue although it will be a couple of weeks before the final funds tally will be completed. Funds generated will be used to further the cause of the wild turkey with promotion of habitat development, continued research related to the

reproduction issues, such as impacts of the weather conditions, predator problems, and the impact of buffalo gnats on mating hens. The local chapter is working with the Illinois natural survey and University of Illinois in a continuing study of these concerns. Wild turkey hunting is a popular activity in Pike County and is another major contributor to our economy. Many businesses in the county recognize this provided financial support by contributing money, goods and services. Please note the appreciation ad elsewhere in this paper.

By offering the Silver&Fit program, we can better help our maturing members maintain a regular schedule of exercise that can improve their overall quality of life. We invite our senior community to join us and experience fitness, disease prevention, social opportunities and fun.â&#x20AC;? Qualified individuals or couples can call 217-285-5635 for branch-specific information or a class schedule. The Silver&Fit program is available to people who are Medicareeligible and have purchased Medicare

Advantage or Medicare Supplement coverage that includes the Silver&Fit program as a benefit. For more information about whether your Medicare plan includes the Silver&Fit program, please contact your health plan or 1-800-MEDICARE.

Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook. com/ SilverandFit, YouTube at www. youtube.com/silverandfit, Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/silverandfit, Twitter at @SilverandFit and Instagram at @SilverandFit. The Silver&Fit program is a product of American Specialty Health Fitness, Inc., a subsidiary of American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH). Illini Community Hospital is notfor-profit, 25 bed critical access hospital located in Pittsfield. It is one of six entities of the Blessing Health System in Quincy. Illini is committed to excellence, offering quality, comprehensive, and compassionate medical care, while also placing a strong emphasis on community wellness. Illini continues to respond to the changing health care needs of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents by keeping pace with technology and providing services that are convenient, accessible and vital to providing excellent health care to the community.

The Pike-Scott AITC program visited Griggsville-Perry Elementary, and with the help of volunteer Nichole Licht from Prairieland FS, taught students about pollination. The students made bag butterfly decorations and pollinator hats that allowed them to â&#x20AC;&#x153;BEEâ&#x20AC;? a pollinator. They also learned how pollen is transported to flowers by pollinators, (like bats, birds, and butterflies) through an activity involving cheese balls and Jug Juice. The children had to pick a cheese ball out of the flower cup, eat it, and then wipe their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pollenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; covered fingers on the pistil of the paper plate flower. Doing this, along with drinking the Jug Juice or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nectarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the class acted out the process of pollination by becoming pollinators themselves.

At the end of this lesson, Tara Bradshaw was given a set of Pollination Ag-Mags as well as a Pollinator Seed Pack, donated by Prairieland FS, for each student. The seed packs contain a mixture of flower seeds that once bloomed, will attract and provide food sources to pollinators right in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own back yards. The Agriculture in the Classroom program is funded by the IAA Foundation and the Two Rivers Farm Bureau Foundation, the charitable arm of the Pike-Scott Farm Bureau. To learn more about the Pike-Scott Agriculture in the Classroom program, please contact Rachel Smith, Pike-Scott Farm Bureau Agriculture Literacy Coordinator, at 217285-2233 or alc@tworiversfb.org.

More childproofing necessary with small objects

By SHELBY STROEMER Pike Press Within the last few years, data has been kept on emergency room visits by small children who ingest small things. A few of the small objects that are regularly seen to be swallowed are toys, coins, magnets, and round, button-sized batteries. In a study published Friday, April 12, the rate jumped from almost 10 kids

per 10,000 ER visits to 18 per 10,000 under the age of 6. While 90 percent of children treated were sent home and not hospitalized, severe internal injuries and death have been reported. With modern times and things changing, small choking hazards can be found everywhere. Button-sized batteries can be found in TV remotes, thermometers, and remote controlled cars, just to name a few. These batter-

ies once swallowed can trigger a chemical reaction that can burn holes through tissue inside the throat. Children who swallow batteries or magnets may vomit or complain about stomach pain. A local mother in Pittsfield had this nightmare happen at her house. Shane and Sierra Roigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-year-old son, Barryington, had gotten into some change. He first
