By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press Illinois has been granted a waiver from some mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act. This adds Illinois to the long list of states that have already received a waiver from the Act, which it applied for in 2012, and many educators are relieved that it has finally been issued. “I think it’s great because it allows us more flexibility with our title one funds,” Ron Edwards, Pleasant Hill Schools superintendent, said. The No Child Left Behind Act was issued in 2001 and attempts to hold primary and secondary schools to higher standards, requiring 100 per-
cent of students in a school to reach the same set of standards in math and reading set by the state. This includes special education students and students with a more disadvantaged background. “I don’t think anybody managed to meet all those expectations…and goals,” Steve Goodman, Western School superintendent, said. The waiver clears the way for some of the new programs and educational reforms the state is putting into effect such as the new PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) testing that will replace ISAT and PSAE testing.

By beth zumwalt Pike Press Pittsfield Main Street’s Family Fun Day lived up to its billing. It was a fun day for most of those who attended. Demonstrations by a group from Nauvoo and the Abe Lincoln Project, a scavenger hunt that took children into 32 different businesses, games by the First Baptist Church, a chance to sit in a fire truck, watch the Saukettes dance and use food coupons at three downtown eateries were all featured activities. “We would like to have had a few more attend,” Christy Davenport, executive director of Main Street, said. ‘But over all we had a good day.” Davenport said 115 children signed in at the registration table and estimates place 250 people in the downtown area throughout the four-hour event.
“That number would include parents and others who didn’t register,” she said. All told, 32 different businesses participated in the day, either by joining in the scavenger hunt or having a demonstration or activity in their business in an attempt to lure foot traffic. “That was the purpose of the event was to get people in some of our downtown businesses to show them what our town has to offer,” Davenport said. “We have a lot of stuff here.” Levi Pope was the winner of the season pass to King Pool for a family of four. He is the son of John and Minnie Pope of Pearl. Davenport said each of the businesses that participated were rewarded with lot of people coming and going and checking out their business. “And the weather cooperated,” she said.
By beth zumwalt Pike Press The Pittsfield City Council voted unanimously to hire Kenny Yelliott as the new chief of police. Yelliott will take over from Dennis Jennings, who has been with the city department the past 30 years. The decision was made at last night’s council meeting. “I appreciate Dennis Jennings and the job he has done for the city,” Yelliott said. “He’s done a good job.” Yelliott, an alderman, did not attend last night’s meeting. His resignation from his alderman’s post is expected in city hall today. In a phone interview after the meeting, Yelliott said he was excited about the opportunity. “I have an investment in the community,” he said. “I live here, I raised my children here, and my grandchildren live here. I think I can contribute.” Yelliott has 30 years of law enforcement experience. “I started out in 1979 with the Pike County Sheriff’s Department as jailer/dispatcher,” Yelliott. “That’s where I got to know Chief Jennings. If I was working midnights and he was, he would come in and check on me, see if I needed
anything. That’s the kind of chief I want to be.” After four years with the PCSD, Yelliott went to work with the as a policeman with the Secretary of State. One year later, he joined the Illinois State Police and worked his way up from road trooper to assistant deputy director of the investigative unit, a statewide position. Mayor John Hayden said the past few weeks were as interesting as any he has had since becoming mayor. “I had a lot of phone calls,” Hayden said. ‘Some didn’t think I should hire any of them, some thought I should hire all of them.” Hayden said five candidates were interviewed and he felt the committee picked the best man for the job. Jennings plans to retire at the end of the May. Hayden said he thought Yelliott would start part-time next week and be on the job with Jennings by May 19. Hayden will have 60 days to replace Yelliott on the council. Yelliott did not attend the meeting. According to Hayden, Yelliott did not want his presence to influence anyone’s vote. Alderman Robert Wilson also missed the meeting due to the death of his mother, Margaret Wilson.
said. “Earlier this spring, it was everywhere.” Johnson said he thinks the disease spread so easily because of the mobility of the hog industry. “There is always something moving,” he said. “Whether it be the hogs themselves or the feed or the workers. There is a lot of movement in the hog industry.” Julie Maschhoff, spokesman for Maschhoff Farms that has hog confinements in nine states including nine sow units in Pike County, said Maschhoff’s has taken every precaution to contain the disease. “We have strict bio-security measures at all times and we increased those,” she said. “Employees had to shower in and shower out, we disinfect the wheels of vehicles, and we restricted movement among the facilities. We were very, very careful.” Still, the disease affected between 50 and 60 percent of their
barns, she said, resulting in piglets being lost over a four-week period of time. “It takes about that long for a sow to build up immunity to PED,” Maschhoff said. “Overall, the industry suffered losses of five to seven percent.” Maschhoff said she expects to see pork prices rise in the grocery stores due to the outbreak of PED. “I think we will see a five to seven percent increase or a corresponding increase in pork prices,” she said. “I don’t think it will skyrocket like beef has, but it will go up because of the supply being affected.” Maschhoff said the disease was deadly to hogs but was depressing for employees. “We try to take very good care of our animals,” she said. “It was hard to watch the piglets become sick when you knew there was no cure.”
PED seems to have leveled off – for now By beth zumwalt Pike Press Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) hit Pike County earlier this year but is showing signs of remission. Experts agree, however, there is no guarantee there won’t be a return epidemic. It is believed the disease is transmitted through the fecal matter of hogs. Jerry Webster, who has several hog confinements in the Pleasant Hill area, said his barns were hit fairly hard. “It hit us hard but we got through it,” Webster said. “It has been devastating. At this time there is no known vaccine. We are hoping that as the weather warms up, the possibility of a re-infection will lessen.” PED first appeared in the U.S. in April of 2013 and has been working its way across the country since
that time. Experts in the industry are comparing it to transmissible gastro enteritis or TGE, which was detrimental to hog farms 20-30 years ago. By early February of this year it was estimated the disease had killed more than 1 million baby pigs nationwide since it was first reported in April 2013. The disease affects baby pigs; older hogs are not affected by it. Piglets 10 days old or younger are especially susceptible. Since there is no vaccine, the only way to stop the disease is to allow the sows giving birth to piglets to build up an immunity that she will pass on to her piglets. That takes time and industry experts say all piglets born within a 4-6 week time span of the disease being contracted will most likely die. “It has leveled off here,” Dr. William Johnson, veterinarian at the Griggsville Veterinarian Clinic,
New Philadelphia on its way to becoming a national park By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a measure to assist in the progress of designating PIke County’s New Philadelphia area as a national park. “We’re pretty positive right now,” Philip Bradshaw, president of the New Philadelphia Association (NPA), said. “It’ll probably be designated as a national historic site.” The bill (H.R. 930) was sponsored by Congressman Aaron Schock and will now go to the Senate for approval. According to Bradshaw, President Barack Obama has said that he would sign it if it comes to him. “He told me when he was a senator he would sign it and he told me when he was president,” Bradshaw said. “We’re confident he will sign
it and we’re confident the senate will pass it.” New Philadelphia was the first town founded and built by a freed slave, Frank McWorter, before the Civil War. McWorter was born a slave in South Carolina in 1777 and later married his wife, Lucy, who was a slave on a Kentucky farm, in 1799. McWorter bought his own freedom and that of his wife by hiring out his own time. He was also eventually able to buy the freedom of 16 other family members. When the family moved to Illinois, McWorter bought a farm in Pike County and in 1836, he plotted the town of New Philadelphia, founding it as the first fully racially integrated community before the Civil War. Today, the original location of New Philadelphia is an active archaeological site. Before it can be

designated as a national park, the site has to go through a feasibility study by the federal government but Bradshaw says most of the documentation needed for that study has already been done. “It should be very little expense,” Bradshaw said. Bradshaw also explained that if the site does become a national park, the NPA would most likely turn it over to the Federal government for upkeep. A new kiosk erected on the site will be dedicated June 3 at 4:30 p.m. and Congressman Schock plans to attend. Afterward, a speaker will give a presentation about Lincoln at the Sprague Lodge. “It’s exciting in the fact that we’re bringing more visitors to the park, but the most important part is that the history will be preserved,” Bradshaw said.
Summer plans for Florence bridge By JEANETTE WALLACE Pike Press The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has plans to do some maintenance work on the Florence Bridge this summer. While the bridge underwent major construction and was closed for a long period of time last year, IDOT does not expect any long closures at the moment for this year. “We anticipate some work this summer to replace a few mechani-
cal parts that are showing some wear,” Paris Ervin, bureau chief of communication services at IDOT, said. “This work will require the bridge to be raised and stay immobile during the replacement, which will create the need for a single day closure of the bridge to highway traffic.” No date has been set for this work at this time, but IDOT will make an official announcement when it decides on a timeframe. The annual bridge inspection
is also scheduled to take place in June. “The bridge will remain open to traffic during the inspection, but will be restricted to one lane at times,” Ervin said. Currently, IDOT’s bridge crew is performing some routine preventative maintenance, mostly dealing with lubricating the bridge’s moving parts. Ervin did not provide further information about longterm plans for replacing the bridge.

Planting season is underway and so far things are going well for crops in Pike County. “All the folks I’ve talked to said the crops are going in nicely,” Blake Roderick, executive director at the Pike County Farm Bureau, said. Much of the corn crops have already been planted and are beginning to sprout. According to the latest Illinois Weather and Crops report, 43 percent of corn crops have been planted in Illinois so far this year, which is 2 percent higher than the five year average. Roderick also said that farmers have also begun planting beans. So far, 3 percent of the soybean crops in Illinois have been planted. He expects most of the soybean crops to be planted in the next few weeks as long as there isn’t too much rain. Last week, cooler temperatures and wet conditions limited field work. There was some worry that moisture wouldn’t be deep enough in the soil and the plants wouldn’t hold, but farmers believe now that won’t be a problem. “From what I’m hearing, things are going along well. But you know that can change quickly,” Roderick said. All in all, so far it’s starting out to be a good year for Pike County crops. “It’s nice to have a normal year for a change,” Roderick said.

Griggsville Estates Marie DeWitt, a resident at the Estates, said she remembered doing the May Pole dance at Pleasant Hill on the playground and guesses she was about the same age as the students at the Estates Thursday. Catherine Stine, another resident, also remembers May Day activities on a vacant lot just west of the Griggsville school. She said there is a house on the lot now and guesses the date was just prior to WWII.
National Day of Prayer at courthouse The annual National Day of Prayer service was held Thursday, May 1 on the south lawn of the Pike County courthouse. Approximately 50 Christians from several different churches braved the temperatures in the upper 40s and a biting west wind, as they gathered to pray for the United States of America and to share a light lunch prepared by Gaylord Rhodes of Pittsfield and other volunteers. The leaders during the noon to 1 p.m. gathering were pastors Michael Pierce of Pittsfield First Baptist Church, Jerry Edison of the Milton Christian Church, Ben Van Kuren and Ahron Cooney of Calvary Baptist Church, Ted Justice of First Christian Church, and Jon Kroeze of the Pittsfield Nazarene Church. Brother Jerry Edison, pastor of the Milton Christian Church for the past 20 years, prayed for the churches of America. Andy Borrowman, chairman of the Pike County Board, prayed for local, state and national government officials. Michelle Kirk offered prayer for our families. Brother Edison, who served in the U.S. Air Force, prayed for our military and their families. N.D. Harrison, businessman and elder at First Christian Church,

list,” Andrea Allen, Griggsville-Perry superintendent, said. Pikeland schools, which were also chosen to pilot the test, did it entirely online. “It was different than anything they’ve ever done before,” Paula Hawley, Pikeland superintendent, said.
Several educators are concerned about having to do testing completely online when they don’t have the capacity to have all their students online at one time. “I’m really nervous about PARCC next year,” Edwards said. “I still question where we’ll get the money to upgrade the technology.”
Schools (Continued from A1) So far two school districts in Pike County, Griggsville-Perry and Pikeland, have been chosen to pilot the PARCC testing.

By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press Greg Dolbeare, a Louisiana, Mo. businessman who has applied for a permit to build a grain elevator, says the plans are on track. Dolbeare has asked the Army Corps of Engineers for permission to develop 65 acres of land he owns between the existing Champ Clark bridge
in Louisiana and the railroad bridge into a grain facility. “We are waiting on permits,” Dolbeare said. “There are several governmental agencies involved and they all seem to move at their own pace.” Dolbeare said while the paperwork and permitting process may be taking longer than he would like, he sees no roadblocks and expects the project to proceed.

Keith Smith takes Land of Lincoln Honor Flight Barry City Council By beth zumwalt Pike Press Keith Smith, a veteran of Korean era service, took the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight last week and said it was the best trip ever. Smith said he served in Germany as a motor sergeant during the Korean Conflict and is thankful he got to take the Honor Flight. “Every serviceman who is eligible should take it,” Smith said. “It is quite a trip.” Smith said he and his son, David, who accompanied him as his guardian, made the trip that left Springfield about 5:30 last Tuesday morning. “The night before, the Springfield VFW served the veterans, their guardians and their families a banquet,” Smith said. “There must have been 200-250 people there. It was a lot of work for them but they made it very nice.” Smith said the flight from Springfield to the Washington area took a little over two hours and during that time the veterans were made very comfortable. “They were always giving us
something to eat or drink,” he said. “They fed us all the time.” Once in Washington, the group toured Washington seeing, the Lincoln and Washington monuments as well as other landmarks including the Vietnam and Korean monuments. “I had been to Washington before,” Smith said. “But I had never seen the Vietnam Memorial or the Korean Monument. We also went to the Air Force Museum. I had never been there. We only spent an hour, but you could spend the day.” Smith said he enjoyed seeing the Enola Gay, the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb and another plane that was capable of flying 2,000 mph. Capt. Paul Tibbets, whose mother lived in Quincy and for whom the plane was named, flew the Enola Gay. Smith said while visiting the memorials in Washington he and several other veterans were interviewed by school children. The last stop of the day was Arlington Cemetery where the group was fortunate enough to see the changing of the guard. “It was a rainy, windy day

Salvage yard in Pittsfield to reopen By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press Area residents will soon have another place to take unwanted metal and turn it into cash. Jerry Lierly, who operates salvage yards in Payson, Quincy and New London, Mo. has agreed to purchase the former salvage yard in Pittsfield, near the state police headquarters. The salvage yard, operated by Alton Materials closed a few months ago. “I expect to close on the deal in the next 45 days,” Lierly said. “We will accept anything metal – appliances, farm machinery, we are licensed to take cars. Also copper, aluminum cans, brass.” Lierly said the business will employ five people with about half coming from his other facilities and half being hired locally. The business will be open Monday-Friday, 8-5 and Saturday’s 8-12.

By MICHAEL BOREN Pike Press The Barry City Council Monday night approved the recommendation of the TIF District committee to grant façade grants to the Barry Thrift Shop ($9,616), Links of Pike County ($8,030), and Ruthie’s Blackberry Run Flowers and Gifts ($7,250). The council, with Alderman Scott Harris absent and Alderman Steve Schultz presiding in the absence of Mayor Shawn Rennecker, officially disbanded the Barry Business Incubator and the related committee, and voted to repurpose about $8,000 remaining in the Incubator fund. Alderman Bruce Kendall stated that a citizen had contacted him about the need of a yield sign at the intersection of Smith Street and Ice House Avenue. He moved that a sign be placed there. Alderman Bob Dieker questioned the need of a sign at that location. After some discussion, Jeff Hogge seconded the motion, which passed three to one, with Kendall, Hogge and Harshman in favor and Dieker opposed. The council approved a zoning change at 384 Decatur Street, after no one had objected in public hearings. The property will be
changed from single family residential to multi-family residential. It is currently owned by the city. A new 20-year franchise agreement for gas supplies from Ameren was approved, as well as the official building demolition bid specifications for taking down the Haskins and Lister buildings. The following committees were approved for the 2014/2014 fiscal year: Streets and Alleys, Dieker chairman, Kendall, Harris; Water and Sewer, Kendall chairman, Harshman, Schultz; Parks & Recreation and Planning & Zoning, Harshman chairman, Kendall, Harris; DECO Revolving Loan Fund, Schultz chairman, Hogge, Harris, Dieker, Rick Shover; Finance, Schultz chairman, Hogge, Dieker; Police and Housing, Harris chairman, Hogge, Harshman; TIF District, Hogge chairman, Schultz, Dieker, Jennifer Ross; USDA Revolving Loan Fund, Schultz chairman, Hogge, Harshman, Kendall, Mark Field, Taylor Rakers. The council also re-appointed the following city officers: City Administrator Lance Kendrick; Public Works Director Melvin Gilbert; Collector Sandra Johnson; Attorney Tad Brenner; and Interim Mayor Steve Schultz.

Spring of 2014 continues this tradition. It seems like spring has been very reluctant this year. Unlike years when floods have been a threat, this year we’re concerned that soil moisture and timely rains will carry our crops through. And isn’t that what keeps us all entertained? The weather here in Pike County keeps finding ways to surprise us. Meanwhile, now that the weather is finally warming up, it seems that farm equipment is everywhere. It’s the time of year when caution is recommended on the roads and byways of Pike County as those large pieces of farm equipment lumber purposefully from field to field. Mix in a little pent up planting anxiety and we all need to be careful. The other observable fact about farm machinery on the roads is – it all just seems to keep getting bigger. “Sharing the road” with some of these rigs isn’t an option; it’s a mandate. In all seriousness, keep watch for slowmoving farm vehicles and help everyone to get to their destination in safety. If you have young drivers in your household, warn them. Until you have personally experienced an encounter with a large planting rig, it’s hard to imagine. We salute the farmers who put in long hours in their mission to feed a hungry world. They form the backbone of our local economy and they deserve our respect.
And if they also need our brake pedal…so be it.

The Pike County Poor Farm
have had a few people ask me about the Pike County Poor Farm. Did we have one? What was it, and where was it? Indeed, we did have a poor farm. Through the years it was also referred to as the “almshouse, county house, county home, and poor house.” I think it was established in 1843 and mostly shut down by 1936. It was located a little more than a mile southwest of Pittsfield on the east-west road that was called “Pig Pen Lane,” now 225th Avenue in Pittsfield Township, just west of the Martinsburg Road. This land has been owned by the Batz family in recent years, and as far as I know, there is still one structure remaining from the county poor farm. In the book of Mark, chapter 14, verse 7, Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them anytime you want.” The county poor farm movement was an effort to help the “deserving poor” ( as the expression was often used), which began in the early 19th century. People often became destitute (or “paupers”) due to old age, infirmity, or physical or mental disabilities of various sorts. When families or churches would not, or could not, provide the needed care, townships began to provide some assistance, usually through the office of the township supervisor. Soon the townships found such care

Illinois Legislature to provide suitable accommodations for all the insane of the state.” Gradually, states began to establish institutions to care for the blind, the deaf and the mentally ill, who were often residents of the county almshouses. The Pike County board of supervisors had the responsibility of hiring the superintendent of the county poor farm. Sometimes there were several candidates who would essentially give a bid for how cheaply they could operate the poor house and farm. In April, 1889, E. F. Binns, the superintendent of the almshouse, gave his annual report. He had reduced the cost to $1.28 per person per week. His report showed: Inmates 50 Male 21 Female 29 Under 8 years of age 6 3 Feeble minded Blind 2 Idiots 3 Insane 23 (5 epileptics) Sick 3 Helpless 6 Thus it would appear that he only had about four able-bodied workers at the farm. His report concludes with the ominous statement, “The rapid increase of pauper insane is alarming.” Gradually, states began to establish facilities for orphans, the blind and the mentally ill, so more and more the county
Letter to the editor How corporations provide our lifestyle
Those who won our independence believed that the final end of the state was (take note, Liberals/ Progressives) “to make men free to develop their faculties”…They valued liberty both as an end and as a means. --Louis D. Brandies from “The Little Books of Virtue,” series one, Courage. From Occupy Wall Street, the Community Movement reborn, one of three booklets brought to me from (the) David Horowitz Freedom Center: “Capitalism is based on the existence of cans and cannots and giving the former freedom to produce without government restraint.” (I would add wills and will nots, the latter better known as “Gimmies.”) “In the real world, Capitalism must meet people’s needs in order to stay in business and make profits. In the real world, corporations make profits only if they lower costs (other things being equal)…profits serve people.” It has been a few years but the gist of the essay was for those of you who resent corporations. The author of the essay would send one at a time those who protest corporate profits out to a cabin deep in the woods for one full week. You would be allowed to take only what you were wearing, no provisions, and absolutely no electronic devices. If you needed heat, you’d have to chop your own wood. Need a drink? Take a bucket to a stream or spring. You’d better be smart enough to boil the water before you drink it. Any reading you want to do had better be done before the sun goes down. Hungry? The woods are full of food – if you know what is safe to eat and what will kill you. Maybe you could figure out how to trap small animals. And, of course, you would have to kill and butcher them before they could be cooked. Did you chop extra wood for that? Rant, rave, rail against corporations all you want to, you will never change the fact that corporations provide your heat, air conditioning, light

difficult to provide, and the movement began to establish county poor houses. The state of New York was one of the first states to codify this in an 1824 law. The idea was to provide “outdoor relief” in a county farm facility. The plan was that any paupers who were ordered by a justice of the peace or a county judge to live in the county farm would be required to provide as much labor on the farm as possible. It was also thought that housing some people in such an institution would provide the opportunity to reform them and cure them of the bad habits and character defects that were assumed to be the cause of their poverty. By the mid 19th century nearly every county in Illinois had a poor farm. The problem was that many people who were sent to the poor farm were not capable of doing any work at all. And early on, many people who were ordered to live at the county home had been declared insane by the county court. The February 11, 1886 Pike County Democrat states that “In the Pike county court during the last three years forty-seven persons have been adjudged insane.” Some of these inmates were a danger to themselves and to others in the county home. Thus, some were kept in isolation or were actually chained to restrict their movement. The Pike County board passed a resolution December 13, 1888 “urging the

and the energy to power your electronic devices, even the seemingly battery-operated ones. After all, you recharge the batteries by plugging into a wall socket that is connected to the electric grid. Your medical care comes from corporations. “Thanks” to ever increasing government interference, the hometown family doctor has been forced to join a corporation to afford to stay in the profession. Tbat is, those who haven’t already thrown in their tongue depressors and retired. And look for those numbers to increase drastically. And, yes, your food comes from corporations. They’re called – farmers. You ask, do corporations need to make so much money? Answer: Actually, they do. Corporations have expenses, big ones. The biggest being complying with ever more outlandish and ever more expensive government regulations that just keep coming. Then, too, corporations are partly to mostly owned by people called shareholders. These are people who have money to invest, often in retirement accounts. These people are taking a risk which not all of them can afford to lose. Even those can afford to lose would rather not. All of these deserve a good return on their investments. Every business needs a cushion of cash to carry them though downtimes, emergencies, natural disasters, or, in other words, funds to operate with when new money is not coming in. Sure, these people live well, but be honest now, would you really trust them to provide your energy needs, your medical care, even your food if they lived in shacks, drove old junkers, dressed in Goodwill rejects? Well, of course not! Don’t be ridiculous, Life is hard on all of us, just in different ways. Remember, too, of him that much is given, much will be required. Still think you want to be one of “those evil rich people”? Be careful for what you wish for in this life, you might get it. JANET KELLY Pittsfield, Ill.

farms became primarily housing for the elderly and infirm. The Great Depression and the various federal programs under the Roosevelt administration began to provide old age assistance through the Social Security program, and many poor farms were closed in the 1930s, and most by the 1950s. The Pike County Republican of December 16, 1936 contained the following paragraph: “After 93 years, Pike County is taking steps to abandon the ‘poor farm,’ known in later times as the ‘county house’ or ‘county home.’ The average number of residents for many years has been about 45. Old age pensions now being provided will put most of the inmates on a new footing. There are now 26 men and women inmates, but for most of these, new homes have been found.” In the county poor farms and in various types of relief and assistance, the tendency in the past century has been to move the problem from the local to the state and then to the federal level. This also increases the size of state and federal government, increases taxes, and brings about more state and federal regulations. For good or ill, the functions of the county poor farms are no longer within local control. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ■ Michael Boren is vice president of the Pike County Historical Society and a member of the Pike County Board.
Truth or tradition?
n my area, flea markets are more popular than the mall. On any given Saturday or Sunday cars and trucks will line the highways. They are full of people who are willing to walk down dimly lit paths where vendors sell everything from hamburgers to hardware. The prices at these places are always negotiable and tax is always included – or maybe even disregarded. These places have always given common folk opportunities to take what they have and sell it or trade it for something they want more. It’s as much a gathering place as anything. When I was young I had a friend who was a wholesale knife dealer. He would always let me know when he came through town so I could meet him and buy his knives. I usually came away with ten or fifteen that I could use for trade bait. In those early years I learned to trade the hard way; usually coming away with something worth less than I paid for it. Since those days I have bought many knives, guns, hardware, and hamburgers at my local flea market. I probably lost a lot of money but gained a lifetime of lessons and memories. I recently took my son to a gun and knife show. This atmosphere was familiar to me but not to him. He had never been to a “store” where the price wasn’t really the price and where the guy selling something was just as interested in buying something. He had a good time. Days like these continue to

remind me how important it is for me to pass down some traditions to my children even if those traditions will eventually be lost by a new generation. And some of them need to be. That’s the problem with most of us as we get older; we think tradition is always truth. In fact, sometimes we fight over traditions more than we do truth, especially in our churches. As a result we lose the next generation. Truth is never negotiable. It can stand alone or be housed in a church, castle or correctional institute. It is truth. Its author is God. It does not change. Tradition is negotiable. It is manmade. It can change. And if it hinders people from getting to the truth, it must change. Are you building your life on truth or on tradition? Are your greatest convictions based on truth or tradition? The best way to answer these questions may not be to ask yourself but your children. They will either see a truth that is alive and good for all generations or one that has been replaced by the dead traditions of days past. –––––––––––––––––––––– ■ Gary Miller is an outdoorsman from Harrowgate, Tenn. firstname.lastname@example.org

The Coonridge Digest: Freida Marie Crump
Time for an encore by Miss Finley Greetings from the Ridge There’s not a living graduate of Coonridge High who can forget Miss Finley. Lola Albright Finley was the school’s entire high school math department for 47 years. She taught all four years of high school math, coached whatever sport was needing a mentor, sponsored the cheerleaders, headed the Jr-Sr prom, and taught music whenever the school was without a song leader. There was only one thing to remember when entering Miss Finley’s classroom: Don’t mess with her. Don’t even think about it. The lady stood just over five and a half feet tall but she had arms that could reach to the back row to slap a chatty sophomore or awaken a sleeping senior. The woman was like a cat. . . a mean, persnickety feline that we all feared and respected. And to her credit, when the graduates of our little high school took their college entrance exams we found that Lola had prepared us well. It wasn’t an option. You learned math or you died. Her mantra was, “You show me a teacher who let’s you get away with foolishness and I’ll show you someone who just doesn’t care about you! I do! Now open those books and let’s get started!” The tales of her discipline were legendary around the
school. She once caught Robbie Zimmerman glancing at Cheryl Wade’s math answers, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck and hauled him out of the class, shouted to the principal to cover her class, and marched the poor whining kid down the street to confront Mrs. Zimmerman, telling Robbie’s mother what had happened and just what sort of punishment she expected mom and dad to carry out. They did. Robbie claimed that he never cheated again in his life. A group of young roughnecks were making life miserable for a new family of kids who moved into town, calling them names and making fun of their ramshackle home. Miss Finley found out and roused the bullies out of their beds the next Saturday morning. The boys spent the day mowing the yard and fixing the fence of the new family. Like all strict teachers, we dread them when they’re with us and miss them when they’re gone. If I had one wish it would be to bring Lola back to life and put her in charge of the world for just one week. “Vladimir! Come up here to the front of the room this minute! I’ve seen the way you’ve been treating those Ukrainian kids and it’s about to stop!” Vladimir smirks. “Get that stupid look off your face unless you want me to slap you into the next county!” Miss Finley’s left toe

comes flying out of left field and sends the boy sprawling into the map of the Soviet Union. Vladdy picks himself up off the floor and says, “The Ukranians were sitting in my seat!” “That’s not your seat!” shouts Finley. “Yeah, but it’s the seat next to mine and I want both of them.” “You know,” says Finley, “I’ve put up with you riding your horse to school without your shirt on, your chasing tigers all around the school, and the way you act like you’re the king of the hill, but this time you’ve gone too far, kid.” “Oh, yeah?” snorts Vladdy. “What’re you gonna do about it?” “Glad you asked,” and Miss Finley picks up a sheet of paper from her desk. “What I have here is a list of sanctions, you little snot. I’m gonna freeze your little asset off!” The class gasps. “Your lunch money’s no longer any good at this school. If you want to eat today you’ll have to beg from somebody else.”
The kids in the class can’t believe what they’re seeing. Most of them depended on the toughest kid, Sam, to stick up for them and fight their battles whenever a bully appeared. In fact, the kids called him Uncle Sam as a term of affection when it suited their needs. But even Sam was puzzled at how to handle a kid so childish and belligerent as Vladdy. My fantasy ends with young Vladimir repenting of his sins, giving all his toys to the Salvation Army, then becoming a community volunteer coordinator in Leningrad, but I suspect that he grew up to raise two selfish sons whose father couldn’t understand how they got that way. I guess that a person can dream and my particular dream is to bring back Miss Finley for one more dose. 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.
Pickings from pike’s past 75 years ago: New bowling alley opens in Pittsfield 125 Years Ago May 2, 1889 The home of a congressman, a state senator, a speaker of the Illinois House and his private secretary, with a legal bar second to none, ministers of unequalled eloquence, brave men and handsome women, and yet Pittsfield couldn’t get up spunk enough to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the start of this government on its pathway to its present high and lofty position. The church bells were rung in this town Tuesday morning. The way we know it is we nearly ran our legs off just before nine o’clock to get it done. The Congregationalists gave an excellent centennial dinner Tuesday. They cannot be beaten when it comes to feeding the poor and hungry. The windiest and dustiest day yet was last week, and the streets could not be sprinkled because one of the wheels of the pumping works was broken. The weather keeps very cool and grass doesn’t grow. Corn comes up slowly, but as the ground isn’t wet, it isn’t likely to rot. The Barry Sun no longer sheds its bright rays in Pike county, as it has set to rise no more. A lot of tramps and bums broke into H. Heavner’s saloon in Pearl last Wednesday night and stole a lot of whiskey and blackberry brandy. Tobe traced them and at one time had the men under arrest, and when the trial was called they were all so drunk that the court dismissed them. 100 Years Ago May 6, 1914 East Washington street was treated to its
summer coat of oil the first of the week by Newburg people with A. V. Wills bossing the job. The funds have been pledged by the businessmen around the square to have the streets around the square oiled as well. M. D. King’s new Overland car has arrived. Junior Lewis motored it through from St. Louis Sunday. C. W. Caughlan of the Times and J. M. Bush, of the Democrat went to Chicago the first of the week to attend the meeting of the democratic newspaper men of the state. The attendance of the El Dara Christian church Sunday school was 143; collection $4.10. The first regular meeting of the Pittsfield Woman’s Club was attended by about 150 women. The club now has 84 members enrolled, which number ought to be doubled. A short petition from the civics department of the Woman’s Club was read to the city council, asking the council to make greater effort toward civic betterment and to have the offal about the hitching places removed every Monday morning during hot weather, also to have the weeds in the street cut frequently. The work of remodeling the north side bank building was commenced in earnest last week. 75 Years Ago May 3, 1939 Fay and Emily Kuhlman will open their new bowling alleys, to be known as the Pittsfield Recreation alleys, at 2 p.m. Saturday. Four new Brunswick alleys and equipment have been installed. A controversial motion to pave and widen
West Washington Street was passed by the Pittsfield City Council last night. Part of the problem is that much of the cost of the improvement will be borne by the property owners along the street. All the rural schools in the Milton vicinity closed Friday, holding picnic dinners in celebration. More than 400 persons attended the Pittsfield Chamber of Commerce employer and employee banquet at the Legion hall Monday evening. Everyone is invited to attend a special Mother’s Day program at the Pearl Christian church May 14. Joe Maynard will be the speaker. 50 Years Ago May 6, 1964 Aldrich Pharmacy in Pittsfield has been remodeled, and now welcomes you with pharmacists C. W. Aldrich, Gaylord Rhodes, Warren Winston and apprentice pharmacist Rex Dinsmore. The new 215 foot bridge spanning Bay Creek just west of Nebo is ready to carry traffic as part of the new 4.5 mile highway connecting Nebo with highway 96 near Pleasant Hill. The highway is expected to be completed this August. Nebo is currently not served by a hard surfaced road. With a population of 440, Nebo may be the largest city in the state to be so isolated. On Sunday April 26 Mr. and Mrs. Ray Johnson, Martha Madarasz, Lemoyne Washington, Mildred Coulter and Grace Matteson uncovered tombstones at the colored cemetery of the ghost town of New Philadelphia. They found the markers for “Free Frank”

Steps to a stronger Illinois economy T
he Illinois economy has been struggling. In January 2014 the state’s unemployment rate was 8.7 percent, second highest in the nation. From our employment peak in November 2000, Illinois lost 656,000 jobs and has regained only 257,000. What can be done about our parlous situation? We asked the experts—the state’s economic development professionals, the men and women who recruit businesses to their communities. The 70 economic specialists who responded to our survey were blunt. Illinois should, they said, take the following steps: Reduce workers’ compensation liability insurance costs. Reduce the corporate income tax. Put the state’s fiscal house in order. Provide stability and predictability about the future, and Change the perception that Illinois is a corrupt state in which to do business. As for workers’ compensation rates, the state needs to follow 29 other states and by enacting a law that requires the workplace to be the prevailing or primary cause of an injury before claims are compensable. At present, all that lawyers for the injured have to do is persuade an arbitrator that the workplace “might have” or “could have been” a contributor to the injury, even if the injury occurred outside the workplace.
At 9.5 percent, the state’s corporate income tax rate is fourth highest in the nation and sticks out like a sore thumb. For many foreign investors, the corporate tax rate is the most relevant tax in their investment decision. The rate should be reduced to no more than 7.3 percent, where it stood before the 2011 tax increases. In other essays, we have discussed how to put the state’s fiscal house in order and provide stability and predictability. In sum, we should broaden our income and sales taxes to encompass faster growing sources of revenue and reduce the rates of these taxes. Three out of four of the respondents to our survey of economic development professionals said that perceptions of corruption in Illinois were either “a factor from time to time” or “an important, negative factor” in efforts to market their areas to businesses from out of state. To change a culture of corruption over time will require such actions as creation of a permanent, highprofile state commission on turning “The Illinois Way” of doing business from a negative about corruption into a positive statement of integrity in government. The campaign could include workshops on ethics for all newly elected local and state officials as well as increased emphasis on ethics in social science studies. Illinois also has to do a better job of marketing itself to the world. We
have hundreds of fragmented, parochial economic developments units in the Midwest that consider it a victory to attract business jobs from one community to another, when that doesn’t increase the number of total jobs. It would be better for Illinois to take the lead in developing a Midwestern version of the Southern Growth Policies Board. A nonpartisan think tank, the Southern group focuses on innovation and technology, globalization and the changing nature of the workforce. Each year the board releases a report on the future of the South. Like Illinois, the Midwest has been lagging the nation in economic growth. We need to compete, not among ourselves, but with the world. As for tax incentives, rather than award $150 million to keep a struggling, mature company in Illinois, our state would be much better off to grant $30,000 each to 5,000 startups to locate here, as entrepreneur Aksh Gupta has recommended. Illinois has great strengths in infrastructure, location, and workforce talent. We must have more confidence in these strengths and in our capacity to market to the world. ––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Nowlan and Johnson are former presidents of the Taxpayers’ Federation of Illinois.

The 113th Fairmount Township Sunday School Convention will be held Sunday May 7 at the Fish Hook United Brethren Church. Retired Griggsville Mayor Don Hannant will be honored at an appreciation day Sunday May 13 at the Legion Hall. Hannant has served 36 years in Griggsville city government, from 1949 to 1961 as alderman, and as mayor from 1961 to 1973 and from 1977 to 1989. Kory and Kurt McAllister, 11-year-old twin brothers, brought several good-sized mushrooms to the Pike Press office Sunday
afternoon. The large morels had been gathered by the brothers and by their cousin, Jason Gress.
10 Years Ago May 5, 2004 Illini Hospital CEO Connie Schroeder announced that Illini will break ground for its expansion/renovation project next Monday with spectacular fanfare. Campbell Publications executive Julie Boren of Pittsfield has been inducted into the Journalism Hall of Fame at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Boren started with the Pike Press in 1975, and is now the editor and publisher of six weekly newspapers in five counties. Illinois State Representative Jim Watson says working together despite party differences is what made a $75,000 state grant available to the city of Barry for a new municipal building. Watson worked with the late Senator Vince Demuzio to ensure the money for Barry. The Pittsfield High School math calculating team won first place in the state competition which involved completing 20 complex math problems as a team. The members are Crystal Prater, Braxton Boren, Jonathan Peebles, Logan Shaw and Evan Roderick. The team is coached by Gary Woods.

Grace for mothers and others
One of the most unforgettable calls I have ever received came from a woman I had never met. This mother had endured such severe parental pain that just hearing her describe it nearly moved me to tears. Her son at age twenty-seven had died in prison of Leukemia only a few months before he was to be released; a sad enough tale in itself, but that was only the tragic end of her story. At fifteen and intoxicated, my caller’s son had ended the life of his eighteen-year-old girlfriend. As a result, he became the first fifteenyear-old in that state to be tried, convicted and sentenced as an adult, resulting in a thirty year prison term. Later, however, due to his exemplary conduct and educational achievements while in prison, he would have been paroled after twelve years. Then Leukemia overruled the parole board, preventing this grieving mother from bringing her son home alive. “How did you survive?” I asked. “By the grace of God,” she replied. My caller that day wasn’t the first mother to have needed the grace of God to make it through a severe trial brought on by one of her children. Nor is she the only mother to be-
come an innocent victim of alcohol’s devastating effect on her family. John Newton, whose father ran a bar, brought great grief to his mother, a devout woman of faith. Regardless of the bad reports about her son, she kept praying for him; often while she labored over her washboard. John had left his home in England while very young, choosing the life of a sailor. And the news that floated home about him wasn’t good. He had become involved in slave trading and fallen into such a vile lifestyle that the “saved a wretch like me” line in the first stanza of the hymn he later wrote is understandable. John Newton traveled far but was never beyond the reach of his mother’s prayers. Then one day, during a storm at sea that he thought would end his life, John remembered the faith of his mother and trusted her Lord as his own. After surviving the storm, John began to study the Bible and at the age of thirty-nine was ordained to the ministry in the little village of Olney, near Cambridge, England. His mother’s prayers had finally been answered. Most of the congregational singing in Newton’s day consisted of Psalms set to music. John finally
discovered that simple heart-felt hymns added greater impact to his preaching and when enough hymns couldn’t be found, he started writing his own. The most enduring of these has been “Amazing Grace,” which is still a favorite of millions. There are even “Amazing Grace” groups that meet in prisons and other places to talk about this old hymn and tell what it means to them, unaware that their favorite hymn is a washboard tune, born before it was written in the life of a praying mother who found God’s grace sufficient during a tough time. What’s so amazing about grace? It is the vehicle of God’s love that arrives at the door of the weak and undeserving offering forgiveness and new life. And it’s still available to mothers and others like you and me. –––––––––––––––––––––––––– ■ Roger Campbell is an author, a broadcaster and columnist who was a pastor for 22 years.

John Erwin Lance, Jr., Colonel, USA (ret.)
Teri Lee Fitch Berriman Teri Lee Fitch Berriman, 59 of Springfield and formerly of Winchester, died May 1, 2014 at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. Teri was born, May 24, 1954 in White Hall, the daughter of Dennis E. and Virginia M. Evans Fitch.

Teri enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and especially cherished every moment she had with her fourlegged companion, Ceaser. Teri also lit up with joy when she was around all of her favorite little two legged friends and taught her “Granddaughter” Lucy Grace Peterson that “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”! She was known to make the finest brownies around. Teri was of the Baptist faith and served her Lord with honor. Teri married Ralph E. Berriman April 2, 1977 in Virden, and he preceded her in death on August 1, 1995. Teri was the proud mother of two children Tara Leigh and Phillip Andrew.

Memorials were suggested to The Wounded Warrior Project or St. Jude’s
Margaret Wilson Margaret Jane McEwan Wilson, 87 of Pittsfield, beloved mother of Isabel, Phemie and Robert, died Monday, May 5, 2014. Margaret was born to Samuel and Isabella McEwan Oct. 16, 1926, in Glasgow, Scotland. As a young woman during World War II, she worked planting trees for the forestry commission and was a stewardess on the steamer, The Marchioness of Lorne in the Firth of Clyde. She married the love of her life, James Wilson of Lanark, Scotland Oct. 5, 1949. Soon after marriage, the couple arrived by ship in New York in May of 1950 to embark on their new life in America. They settled in Pittsfield where Margaret’s sister and brother-in-law, Isabel and Bill Giger resided. After working as a floral designer at Frances Floral Shop, she eventually owned and operated Margaret’s Flowers on the square in Pittsfield for many years. She was a member of the Madonna Circle of the First United Methodist Church, a founding member of Isabel’s Knitting Club, a Girl Scout leader, cookie chair for several years and a Senior Scout. She also joined the Pittsfield Garden Club, became a Master Gardener, and contributed to the beauty of Pike County by filling the planters at the Pike County Court House for many springs as well as planting flowers at the city lake entrance and tending the garden at First United Methodist Church.

1920-2014 John Lance, “the Colonel,” died Friday, April 25, 2014 at home with his daughter and three dogs by his side. Born in Morristown Tenn. to Nola Lacy and John Lance, Sr., he had four older sisters – Margaret, Nola, Mary, and Billie – who loved and spoiled him for decades prior to their deaths. He is survived by He is survived by three daughters and one son- inlaw: Jane and Dr. William Johnson of Pittsfield, Janice Lance, and Anne Lance along with five grandchildren and one great-grandchild - Clayton and Ali Johnson (daughter Nina), Sarah and Sohil Banerjee, Torie Johnson, Douglas Claunch, and Henry Johnson His early years were dominated by athletics, accruing countless accomplishments, playing football and basketball for Georgia Tech – serving as Captain of the Basketball Team in his junior year. A “Soldier’s Soldier,” his military career and experiences were nothing short of legendary, spanning almost 32 years, 11 of them on foreign soil. He entered his first foray as a rifle platoon leader with 186 enlisted men and six officers, emerging with 38 enlisted men and one officer. He was shot through the lower back, going AWOL from his hospital in Liege in order to return to his unit. Military assignments included the Pentagon, Fort Benning, Schofield Barracks, the Army War College, multiple tours of duty in Southeast Asia, and his final tour as post commander at Fort Meade.

The Colonel’s profound Christian faith and love of family were unparalleled, notably his marriage to Polly Drinnon, the love of his life. Their 45-year marriage was cut short by her death in 1991.. His life was also enriched by a procession of cherished pets, including seven puppies he was helping foster for the Pensacola Junior Humane Society. The Colonel’s church involvement with the Shalimar Presbyterian Church was a mainstay in his life. He often said if anyone wanted proof God existed they need only consider a newborn child and a hummingbird. Church services were April 29 at Shalimar Presbyterian Church; visitation was that evening at McLaughlin Funeral Home. Interment was Wednesday, April 30 with full military honors at Barrancas Cemetery in Pensacola, Fla.

The State of Illinois so far this year confiscated $26.3 million in federal tax refunds from individuals who knowingly collected unemployment insurance while working, the Illinois Department of Employment Security said today. The three-year-old program has recovered $120.57 million through tax garnishments and convincing individuals to enter into repayment plans to pay off their debt. Individuals who owe IDES money because of fraud will not receive future benefits until that debt is paid. “Illinois workers are honest and proud. Those who steal money from the fund used to help our neighbors who are out of work must be held accountable,” IDES Director Jay Rowell said. “We are not talking about innocent people who made a one-time mistake. They knew they were lying, refused to consider a repayment plan when they were caught, and made enough money at work to earn a tax refund.” In the past three years, IDES confiscated federal tax refunds 58,376 times. If a refund is not enough to repay the debt, and the individual continues to refuse a repayment plan, IDES will garnish future refunds until the debt is paid. Data shows that this process is changing behavior. In 2012, the first year of the federal tax garnishment, 922 people entered into repayment plans. This year, 3,495 have agreed to a repayment plan. Protecting the integrity of the Trust Fund is paramount. Money that pays for unemployment insurance benefits comes from a business payroll tax. The Trust Fund’s balance is among the factors considered when determining the payroll tax amount. The lower the Fund balance, the higher the payroll tax. Bi-partisan reforms enacted in 2011 enabled IDES to use this garnishment tool. IDES integrity programs are catching waste, fraud and abuse more quickly than ever before. In many cases, the fraud is identified before a single benefit payment can be made. When that does not occur, Illinois garnishes tax refunds. It also will confiscate lottery winnings from individuals who wrongfully collected unemployment. Employers play a critical role in fighting unemployment fraud. IDES contacts employers when an unemployment application is received so the employer can accept or challenge the claim.

New easement options for Illinois farms The new Farm Bill includes the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), a new conservation program that consolidates three former programs–the Wetlands Reserve Program, Grassland Reserve Program and Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program. NRCS’ new ‘super easement’ program provides financial and technical assistance in two different ways: to conserve working agricultural lands and create wetlands and their related benefits. According to Illinois’ State Conservationist Ivan Dozier, easement components help landowners protect and enhance enrolled lands. Interested parties must submit ACEP applications by June 6th, 2014. Why are easements a good option to consider? The Ag Land Easements offer ways to protect the long-term viability of our nation’s food supply by preventing the conversion of productive working lands to nonagricultural uses. These lands provide
important public benefits, including environmental quality, historic preservation, wildlife habitat and protection of open space. Using Wetland Reserve Easements will provide habitat for fish and wildlife, including threatened and endangered species. These easements improve water quality by filtering sediments and chemicals, reduce flooding, recharge groundwater, protect biological diversity and provide opportunities for educational, scientific and recreational activities. Through the use of easements, NRCS works with private landowners and partners to protect agricultural use and conserve eligible land. On working farms, easements help farmers keep their land in production agriculture or in grass for grazing without rick of conversion to non Ag use. Under the Agricultural Land component, NRCS may contribute up to 50% of the easement’s fair market value. On sites where NRCS deter-
mines grasslands with special environmental significance need protection, NRCS may contribute up to 75% of the easement’s fair market value. Under the Wetland Reserve component, NRCS offers three enrollment options: Permanent Easements – These last forever. NRCS pays 100% of the easement value for purchase of the easement and between 75 to 100% of restoration costs. 30-year Easements – These expire after 30 years. NRCS pays 50 to 75% of the easement value for purchase of the easement and for 50 to 75% of restoration costs. If a conservation easement sounds like a good option for protecting your farm or your family’s land, make an appointment to visit your local NRCS office. Start the conservation conversation today!

Illini partners with Memorial Medical Center Illini Community Hospital has launched a partnership with Memorial Medical Center to offer teleneurology services, which uses two-way audio and video teleconferencing to provide patients with immediate access to stroke-trained neurologists. “Our partnership with Memorial Medical Center gives our community around-the-clock access to experienced stroke-trained neurologists who will work with us to evaluate and administer the most effective and appropriate treatments for people suffering from acute stroke or other neurological conditions,” Kathy Hull, President and CEO of Illini Community Hospital, said. “This means more people in our community will have access to neurologists and will receive the life-saving care they need close to home,” Hull said. “Any patients who may need a higher level of care can be quickly identified and transferred to Memorial Medical Center to receive additional treatments including minimally invasive neurointerventional procedures.” In addition to providing rapid local treatment for stroke patients, the partnership will also expand care to include emergent telehealth services for other acute neurological conditions, including seizures, head bleeds, aneurysms, epilepsy, acute onset confusion and altered mental status. The Memorial Teleneurology Network uses real-time two-way audiovisual conferencing to provide community hospitals 24-hour access to stroke-trained neurologists. Physicians connect through a secure web camera so a patient can be examined remotely, allowing a board-certified neurologist to perform a rapid assessment of the patient. Neuroimaging performed at Illini Community Hospital can be accessed remotely to allow for quick interpretation for accurate diagnosis. The neurologist and Illini’s clinical team can
discuss, order, implement and monitor treatment options, with the goal of keeping patients in their own community and close to home. If a higher level of care is required, the patient can be transferred to Memorial Medical Center, which offers neurointerventional radiology services. The neurologist and Illini’s clinical team work together to identify acute stroke patients and treat any acute neurologic emergency. “Illini Community Hospital’s clinical team and the neurologist work together and carry out the best treatment option for the patient,” said Dr. Sajjad Mueed, Memorial Stroke Center medical director and a neurologist with Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Memorial Medical Center is certified
as a primary stroke center by The Joint Commission. The certification recognizes Memorial for “exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care,” according to The Joint Commission. Primary stroke centers tailor treatment to individual needs, adhere to national stroke guidelines and continually assess and improve how care is delivered. Memorial offers a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to stroke care with an integrated program that addresses the complete spectrum of care from prevention to rehabilitation. Memorial’s rehabilitation facilities are among only a handful of others worldwide to hold a fivefold accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, including accreditation for its stroke specialty program.

We take this time during National Nurses Week to say ‘Thank You’ to all of our nurses for the work they do on a daily basis.” Illini currently has 71 nurses on staff, with nurses serving the needs of the patient in numerous areas of the hospital as well as at the Illini Rural Health Clinic. Sandy Farrell has been a Registered Nurse for 40 years and has spent the entirety of her nursing career at Illini. “Nursing is a calling,” Farrell said. “For me, I always knew I wanted to be a nurse. Our patients
JANE BARNES need help and that’s what we’re here for – to provide the high quality care our patients require.” As part of National Nurses
Week, Illini names a “Nursing Excellence” award winner. This year’s winner is Jane Barnes, RN in the Illini Emergency Department. Barnes has been at Illini since January of 2011. “Jane is an exceptional nurse who goes above and beyond to provide the very best care for her patients in our Emergency Department,” said Chris Wassell, Supervisor of the Illini Emergency Department. “She is very deserving of this award and I am very proud that she was recognized this year.” The nursing profession can be a thankless job, but, Farrell says it’s something young people should look into when making a career choice. “Nursing is a wonderful career,” Farrell said. “It can take you in so many directions and to so many places that you never could have imagined.”
Saluting National Nurses Week May 6-12, 2014
In recognition of National Nurses Week, we salute the dedicated nurses who put patients first. Whether in emergency rooms, schools, hospitals or homes, we depend on our nation’s nurses for their expertise, care and compassion in times of need. During National Nurses Week and all year round, let’s give nurses the thanks and recognition they deserve for their tireless efforts and accomplishments in the field of healthcare.
National Nurses Week 2014
Thank You to all of the nurses at Illini who offer excellent care for their patients.

Western withdraws from program By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press
crowns prom royalty
Mindy Miller, left, daughter of Robert “Jasper” Miller and Tina CanEss and Hayden Bradshaw, son of Larry Bradshaw and Carrie Bradshaw were crowned queen and king, respectively at the Griggsville-Perry prom Saturday night. The prom was held at Xtreme Whitetail Lodge on Il. Rt. 104 north of Perry.
Griggsville-Perry Applied for the Illinois Department of Transportation’s and Traffic Safety P.R.O.M ‘’Please Return on Monday” event and were given pens, lanyards, earphones, bracelets, and smartphone cleaners to hand out to the students last Friday before they went to prom on Saturday. The importance of safe driving, not drinking, and making smart prom decisions was discussed with the students. Two students, left to right, Jordan Dehart and Riley Bradshaw show off all of the P.R.O.M items they were given Friday.
Western School District has been forced to withdraw from Race to the Top, program that was part of the No Child Left Behind initiative. The matter was discussed at the April 16 Western School Board meeting. According to Steve Goodman, interim superintendent of the district, the program was designed to make sure every student was performing at level in every subject by 2014. “There was some money attached to it,” Goodman said. ‘But, basically, they wanted to use you for guinea pigs. To try out different methods of teaching, different technology. They offered some teacher trainings, that sort of thing.” Goodman said when Western voted to no longer offer ag classes at the school, the school no longer met the criteria to be enrolled in the program. “I contacted the Illinois School Board Association,” Goodman said. “There are no punitive damages by withdrawing.” Goodman said in his capacity as interim superintendent, only having been in the district since January, he could not say how much in funds Race to the Top had helped the district but estimated it to be around $25,000 per year. The board made several personnel decisions at the meeting including accepting resignations from Mike Fray, junior high girl’s basketball coach and part-time athletic director, Western High School boys basketball coach Pat Rafferty and Western High School girls basketball coach, Jim Shields. Coaching assignments were made including: Jerud Van Dyke was hired as Western High School boys basketball coach, Claire Gursch was hired as high school golf coach, Anna Hechler was hired as high school volleyball coach, Quentin Hatfill was hired as the junior high boys basketball coach and for the fifth and sixth grade program, Liz Greger was hired as junior high girls basketball coach and coach of the fifth and sixth grade program, Janet Kroencke was hired as junior high girls volleyball coach Taylor Baxter was hired as junior high volleyball coach, Travis Ruppel was hired as high school baseball coach, Taylor Baxter was hired as language arts teacher dependent on certification, effective Jan. 1, 2015 Honorably dismissed were educational support personnel including: Kelsi Buss, Kathleen Schlueter, Teresa Lehr, Krissi Banks and Janet Woods. The board also renewed the two-year co-op agreement with Pleasant Hill for football.
G-P’s Outstanding Student for April The nomination for MaKenzie Flowers included some of her most redeeming traits. “Kenzie was nominated because she is one of the hardest working, most dedicated students. She never slacks off or wastes time. If she finishes her work for class, she immediately goes to work on another subject. Her study skills and use of time are superior. She truly cares about doing her best. Also, her personality is so sweet and cheerful. Her behavior is perfect. A highly successful career is anticipated for Kenzie throughout high school and beyond. She is full of school spirit and ambition! G-P is lucky to have a student like her for a couple more years to come.” Nominations are anonymous. Submitted photo

Society Card of Thanks Daniel and Ferguson A big thank you to everyone who helped make our 75th annual HCE meeting a big success. Thank you to all the board members who helped decorate and bring their old time cooking utensils, old newspaper articles, cookbooks and pictures for display. Thank you to the Pittsfield Swing Choir for their great program, to Jennifer’s Catering for the great meal, to Bob Humphrey for all his work on our placentas and napkin decals and to On a Day Johnston for stepping in to help at the last minute (while Ann Ferguson enjoyed her Hawaiian trip).

Fesler The family of John and Annie Fesler would like to thank family and friends for all their prayers, cards, calls, visits, food, gifts and memorial contributions during their illness and after their passing. A very special thank you to Amy Haley and Stephanie Little who went the extra mile for them and to the ladies of UMC for the delicious meal after Annie’s services. Thank you also to Jennifer Niebur for watching Annie during John’s service and to all the family who cared for her during John’s illness. Thanks for the support of all the relatives and friends who braved the cold, windy day to say their last farewell to John. He enjoyd talking to every last one of you when you came to visit him throughout the years. He loved those talks. Annie loved to talk, also and I’m grateful to everyone who took the time to visit with her and treat her as a peer. It meant so much to her to be treated as an equal. There are so many people who have been kind to Annie. I can not begin to thank all of them individually. But besides the many relatives, aunts, uncles and cousins, I would especially like to thank Nadine Sturt, Maxine Brunns, Sharon Cooley, Hazle Doran, and Janet Main as well as Annie’s Sunday school class. She loved getting her S.S. lesson every monday in the mail and the generous donations to this class are greatly appreciated. Also greatly appreciated were the generous donations to John’s favorite charity, the cemeteries. He loved walking through the cemeteries and reading the inscriptions. Now he’s walking in heaven with Annie and taking care of her up there. Thank you for your kindness to them here. Jonie Fesler and families. Hoss and Corinna We would like to thank all of our family and friends that came and helped make our 25th wedding anniversary a very special night.

Annie Ward, a seven-yearold student in the Pleasant Hill School District was born without a gene which gives her Angelman Syndrome, meaning she has both mental and physical developmental disabilities. Those who have the syndrome are called Angels. What Annie was born with are friends in her home school district. Students in her school attended an assembly last week to learn more about Angelman’s Syndrome and a walk the following day raised more than $120 for the foundation which tries to provide support and funding for research for the syndrome. “We were estatic,” Stephanie Ward said after the walk. “ Every little bit helps. There is a walk in Chesterfield, Mo, May 17 and they already have 300 registered and have raised $5,100. There goal is to raise $1.2 million.” Stephanie Ward and her husband, Phillip, along with their two other children, Miley, 5 and Ty, 4, plan to attend the walk and help raise awareness as well as funds. The walk is associated with the Trinity Lutheran Church and already has 17 different teams of families members, friends or those wanting to support an Angel’s family. “It is a rare disease affecting only one in every 15,000- 20,000 births,” Stephanie Ward, whose mother Danita Ewers McCain, also lives in Pleasant Hill. “Annie has to go to school in Jacksonville because Angels are intolerant to heat. If she gets too hot, she can start having seizures. Pleasant Hill school are not air conditioned so she goes to Jacksonville. There is another Angel in her class of six. We were so estatic to meet him and be able to discuss things with his parents.” Ward says she has also found a support group on FaceBook for parents of Angels. “It is a great resource,” she said. “No question is considered weird.

Both Sierra and Runner are available for adoption to a good home through the Pike County Animal Shelter.
Farmers State Bank donates $80,00 to city of Pittsfield and Pike County Animal Control Farmers State Bank, trustee of the Gray Trust, gifted $80,000 from the trust to the City of Pittsfield and Pike County Animal Control May 5. A gift of $50,000 was given to the City of Pittsfield, owner of the Pike County animal shelter building, for immediate capital improvements. A total of $30,000 was distributed to the Pike County Animal Control to assist with the spay and neuter program and other animal welfare needs. According to Nevin Grigsby, Executive Vice President of Farmers State Bank, the bank, serving as trustee, is pleased to be able to help promote the care and humanity of animals in Pike County, while following the wishes of the late Richard Gray, grantor of the trust. “The various projects decided upon will be left to each recipient’s discretion, subject to abiding by the terms of the trust,” Grigsby further explained. The City of Pittsfield will use the Gray Trust donation to make immediate improvements and help upgrade the animal shelter facility. “Currently, we can only do so much with the funds we presently have,” Mayor John Hayden said. “Most of the money we have now is used for operating expenses. This money will help us make major improvements to the shelter and utilize local contractors for the job.” “This gift will help us in so many ways,” Debbie Lambeth, Pike County Animal Warden, said. “We need insulation, fences, dog houses and so much more.” As for the Pike County Animal Control, Lambeth says the Gray Trust donation will enable the shelter to better treat animals by assisting in the purchase of much-needed medicine and dog food. “This money means so much to us,” Lambeth said. “We have used it in the past for the spay and neuter program and have seen a tremendous decrease in
the litters of pups and kittens, not to mention people are more willing to adopt if an animal has been spayed or neutered. We are just so appreciative of the Gray Trust.” The Richard L Gray Perpetual Charitable Trust is a trust created to provide funds to any one or more exempt organizations that engage in the prevention of cruelty to animals or which promote the welfare of animals.

Hannibal Regional Hospital recognized
Hannibal Regional Hospital today announced that is has achieved the Healthgrades 2014 Outstanding Patient Experience Award™. Hannibal Regional Hospital was identified as providing outstanding performance in the delivery of positive experiences for patients during their hospital stay, according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. To be eligible for the Healthgrades 2014 Outstanding Patient Experience Award, Healthgrades evaluated 3,582 hospitals that submitted patient surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering admissions from March 2012 – April 2013. Of these hospitals, 3,000 hospitals met additional clinical quality requirements to be considered for this Healthgrades distinction. The top 15 percent of this group or 447 hospitals achieved the award. Hannibal Regional Hospital ranks in the top 10% in the nation. “Our team members believe that providing personalized service is an integral part of the patient experience at Hannibal Regional,” states Lynn Olson, President and CEO of Hannibal Regional Hospital. “It is their dedication and commitment that made this award possible.” Healthgrades evaluated Hannibal Regional Hospital’s performance as assessed by the hospital’s patients across 27 different questions that roll up to ten distinct measures. Ranging from cleanliness and noise levels in a patient room to factors such as pain management and responsiveness to patient’s needs, the measures also include whether a patient would recommend this hospital to friends or family.
“As consumers are becoming more active participants in their healthcare, measured performance surrounding the patient experience at a hospital is an increasingly important consideration for patients in choosing where to receive their care,” said Evan Marks, EVP Informatics and Strategy. “Consumers can rest assured that those hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades 2014 Patient Experience Award demonstrate a commitment to exceptional focus on the needs of the patient during their stay at the hospital.” For more information about Healthgrades, to download a full copy of the report or to get information about hospital and physician quality, visit: www. Healthgrades.com today. Hannibal Regional Hospital is a 91 – bed acute care hospital providing community healthcare to more than 125,000 residents in the tri-state area. As a notfor-profit community owned and locally governed hospital, Hannibal Regional Hospital continues to focus its efforts on meeting the health and wellness needs of those currently being served as well as those of future generation. Hannibal Regional Hospital has been recognized by the Healthgrades organization as a 2013 and 2014 Outstanding Patient Experience Award recipient – ranking HRH among the top 15% in the nation. In addition to the Outstanding Patient Experience Award, HRH has also earned several orthopedic services-related accolades from Healthgrades including being one of “America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery” in 2012 and being ranked as one of the top 10 hospitals in Missouri for overall orthopedic services for both 2012 and 2013.
DAR holds state conference The 118th Illinois State Conference is held annually to recognize those DAR members, who have strived to meet the goals set forth for the past year. Awards and Certificates in recognition for goals accomplished were awarded. Nominations for State Officers for the coming year were heard and voted on. The State Officers, State Chairmen and Committees plan to attend the many workshops to educate and excite the members on how to meet objectives and expand their interest in the many programs offered by DAR: Patriotism, Education, Conservation, Preservation, Literacy, Genealogical records to name only a few. Under the leadership of Illinois State Regent Pamela Borg, the Conference had all Illinois State Regents, Chapter Regents, and District Directors in attendance. The State Regents from Colorado, Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Mexico were present. Representatives of the President General Office; Vice-President, Mary Ann W. Middleton, and Honorary Vice-President, Georganne S. Marty were also in attendance. Each of the 105 Illinois Chapter Regents, Vice Regents and Chairmen presented their annual reports, each using State Regent Bork’s theme, “Ties that Bind our Past to our Future” in their presentations Friday, after dinner, The National Defense Evening started with a concert performed by the 144th Illinois Army National Guard Band. The Band played songs of all branches of the military. When the song was played, the members who had a family member in that branch of the military would stand. The audience participation was heart warming as they sang songs and applauded showing their appreciation for the sacrifices made by the members of the military, their relatives, and families. A special guest, Brigadier General Wilma Vaught (USAF Ret.) pre-
sented American Military Women “A Legacy of Courage, Character, and Commitment.” Brigadier General Wilma Vaught was born March 15, 1930. She joined the Air Force and was deployed with an Air Force Bomber unit. She holds the honor of being the first woman to reach the rank of Brigadier General from the Comptroller field. She received her M.B.A. from University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 1968. In August 1972, she became the first female Air Force officer to attend the Industrial College of the Army Forces at Fort Lesley J. Mc Nair. Her presentation chronicled the discrimination against women during the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, as nurses were not allowed to assist doctors, because they were women. Also, this is documented in the Lincoln Museum in Springfield Illinois. Discrimination of women has existed to present day. Brigadier General Vaught has been a champion of women’s rights in the Military. She has been instrumental in many of the changes affecting our women in uniform today. If you would be interested in reading more about Brigadier General Vaught many accomplishments, please search her name online. Sunday, “Remembering those who have Departed.” Music was provided by DAR Chorus, as members stood as the names of their departed chapter members were read. The wearing of gloves was requested. The wearing of hats were optional. Brunch was followed by a Memorial/Worship Service and Achievements Awards were presented. The membership sang “Blest Be the Ties That Bind”. The Nancy Ross Chapter sent seven members to the 188th Illinois State conference; Julie Kremer, Kathy Zimmerman, Alice Cripe, Becky Leech, Shari Zenner, and Rita Andress.

Rain plays havoc Six games left in Saukee season with schedules By beth zumwalt Pike Press There are six games left in the Saukee baseball season and the Saukees are 13-11. The Saukees have Western at Western tomorrow night, Payson Thursday night, Porta at Porta Friday night. Next week, the final week of the season, they will be at Jacksonville, and finish out with three home games, Liberty, Triopia and Unity. Regionals start May 20 Pittsfield has been assigned to the Gillespie regional. Schedules will be announced Wednesday, May 14, according to the IHSA website. Joining the Saukees, besides the host team, will be Carlinville,
Hillsboro and Pittsfield. The Saukees will go into the regional with some big bats. Austin Allen and Jacob Jenkins are batting .467 and .423 respectively. Jonah Meleski at 375, Dalton Butler at 345 and Quinn Leahy a .315 also have respectable averages. Butler and Korbyn Personett lead the team in home runs with four each. Butler and Meleski lead the team in timely hitting with 22 and 21 RBIs respectively. Butler also leads the team in extra base hits with 10 doubles and two triples. Allen leads the team in stolen bases with 13 and has walked the most of any Saukees, 14 times, to give him the opportunity to steal.
By beth zumwalt Pike Press Last week’s rainy start cancelled a number of ball games in the area. A few games were played Thursday and by Friday and Saturday most fields were in good shape. Most coaches are doubtful that the rained out games will be madeup due to the lateness of the season. Regional action starts May 20. Brackets and schedules will be announced May 14. In baseball, Pleasant Hill has been assigned to the North Greene regional. Also in White Hall will be the hosts, Brussels, Greenfield and Calhoun. Western and Griggsville-Perry have both been assigned to the
West Central regional, which will be played at Winchester. Other teams in the regional include the Cougars, Triopia and Brown County. Pittsfield, the only 2A school will be at the Gillespie regional, along with Carlinville, Hillsboro, Litchfield and Gillespie. Softball regionals will start at the same time. Western is going to the Payson regional as is Camp Point, Liberty, Unity and the hosts. Griggsville-Perry is hosting their own regional. Triopia, Routt, Brown County and West Central round out the field. Pleasant Hill girls will be at Calhoun along with the Lady Warriors, Brussels, Carrollton, Greenfield and White Hall.

A vacant house on the east end of Pittsfield Street in Milton was destroyed by fire Saturday night about 9:30 p.m. The fire could be seen from as far away as Time and the Bluffs exit. The house was fully engulfed when firemen were summoned. East Pike responded to the fire and Pittsfield was called for backup but were cancelled before arriving.
The fire still had a big enough flame to give off lots of heat even after the house had collapsed. There were no injuries in the fire but the house next door had damage.
