By Saturday afternoon, the lot on Sarah Jane Lane in Pleasant Hill had a whole new look as the church under construction had identifiable

features. The builders hoped to get the sheeting on the roof Monday, but rain forced a short delay, pushing them closer to the deadline.

Kepley returns to Pike as a Carpenter for Christ By beth zumwalt Pike Press Many of the Carpenters for Christ who were in Pike County last week were anxious to see the sights and learn about the area. But one of them already knew a lot. Phil Kepley, who was associated with Pike County Mental Health from 1975-1993, was already familiar with terrain. “A lot has changed,” Kepley said. Kepley and his grandson, Doug, (son of Nathan Kepley) are working on the First Baptist Church in Pleasant Hill. Nathan was expected to join the duo over the weekend. Kepley said he now lives in Salisbury N.C., the town where he grew up. “I live on Kepley Road, which is named after my grandfather,” he said. He said his wife, Mary Sue, is doing “pretty good” after having some health issues, including recovery from a seri-

ous auto accident within the last year. Kepley said Carpenters for Christ has become a big part of his retirement. “This is the 25th church I’ve been involved in,” he said. “I was originally with the group that built the Calvary Baptist Church in Pittsfield in 1988 but that group grew to be so big, so I joined a spin-off group about 10 years ago.” Kepley says he does one project a year and always the same time of year, around Father’s Day. Kepley said he has been back to Pike County on occasion and plans to visit Kepley House in Pittsfield, the home for the disabled named for him. He also wants to drive by the house the family lived in on Monroe Street and visit the Withus Farm, near Martinsburg, where the family also lived. His son, Nathan, lives in Vandalia and owns his own janitorial service. He has recently became reconnected with his high school sweetheart, Bonne Shelton Philpott.

By beth zumwalt Pike Press The half demolition of Higbee School still has the Pittsfield City Council concerned. The former high school, elementary school and eventually a junior high was built to replace a building that was burned in 1907 and has been in a state of disrepair for several years. The building, in the 300 block of Adams Street and stretching back to Jefferson, has been in various stages of demolition for the past year. “I get several calls a week about it,” John Hayden, mayor, said at the June 3 council meeting. Neighbors surrounding the school say coons and other vermin living in the building are being displaced by the demolition and wandering out into the neighborhood. Coons are the most common complaint as they get into garbage and

upset dogs in the area, causing excessive barking. Dead coons, suspected to have been hit by vehicles, have been observed on the streets around the area. In addition to the rodents and pests in the building, the site itself presents a danger with free-standing walls and piles of debris. Alderman Ed Knight said he had been in contact with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and everyone has concerns about the hazards there that have not been addressed. “The next step will be to have our attorney, Mike Hollahan, contact the EPA attorney and see what we can do,” Knight said. “The Pike County Health Department agrees the quicker we can get it down, the better.” The building, owned by Charlie Dolbeare, is being demolished by Seth Hall, who is trying to salvage as much of the building as possible. (See HIGBEE, A2)

A new kiosk erected on the New Philadelphia site in Pike County was dedicated Tuesday, June 3. 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. A shelter at the site was funded by the Illinois Rural Electric Cooperative and constructed in 2013 by a John Wood

Several descendants of the McWorter family also attended the dedication including author Gerald McWorter, who spoke about the history of the town and his family. “It’s such a wonderful thing to realize…that we have the opportunity to share this story,” McWorter said. An assistant professor at Fitchburg University who spe-

cializes in game design and interactive media, Jon Amakawa, brought an iPad with his vision of what the site could be eventually. He explained that he could design an application for smartphones and tablets that allows visitors to take a virtual tour of the location and see what it looked like when it was a flourishing town. U.S. Congressman Aaron Schock also spoke during the

shelter dedication. Schock has been an advocate for a bill that would name New Philadelphia as part of the National Park Service. “For future generations this building will just be the beginning of what we’re trying to construct to help show the history,” Schock said. “The designation as a national park will then naturally draw more tourism for Pike County.”

Once any salvageable materials with any value are removed, the remainder of the building will be hauled away and the lot leveled. Also discussed at the meeting was the beer garden ordinance

which passed, complete with fees for a beer garden license and fines for violating the regulations. The council also heard that a bid of $18,600 has been accepted for two new tornado/emergency warning sirens. One of the sirens will be placed near Neal Tire, to provide warning of impending danger to residents on the west side of town and the other will be

placed at the city’s sewer plant and will serve the north edge of the city. Currently the siren on the water tower downtown and another siren near the high school serves the south side of the city. The company that received the bid will install the sirens when they deliver them. No date was confirmed for delivery and installation.

By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press With their building needing extensive renovations, the Perry Masonic Lodge may tear the facility down and merge with the Griggsville Masonic Lodge. Bill Thiele, is the master of the lodge and said the roof and top floor need serious repairs. The building was built in 1920. “We can’t put any more money into that building,” Thiele said.

“We have no money to operate.” Thiele said the dues were only $30 per year and a portion of that goes to the Grand Lodge. The Perry Lodge has approximately 30 members and half of those are 50-year members, meaning they pay no dues. “So we have about 15 guys who are paying,” Thiele said. “Sometimes we have a bakeless bake sale to raise funds.” Thiele said the local Church of Christ has offered its building

Thiele thinks a better option might be to merge with Griggsville. “If we went in with them and New Salem went in with them, there would be around 100 members,” he said. Meanwhile, the Masons, who meet the third Monday of the month, will continue to seek options about how to demolish the building and what to do with the membership.

Silent auction will be another Marie Miles gift to the arts By julie boren Pike Press Marie Miles is no longer able to contribute to the fine arts in Pike County but even so, that is how her family would like her to be remembered. Family members have decided that later this month, original framed paintings by Miles will be offered to the public at a silent auction to benefit the Pittsfield High School Drama Club. The connection to the drama program is easy to decipher. For the better part of three decades, Miles created vibrant and professional set design and scenery for plays and musicals performed by Pike Players, Pittsfield High School and Pittsfield Theatre Guild. On rare occasions, she even took to the stage herself. “She dedicated her life to the fine arts in Pike County,” said Jim Miles of Austin, Texas, Marie’s nephew. “I said to my brother, ‘Why couldn’t we create a legacy of her life that might have a little more meaning?’ ” Jim Miles and his brother, John, now look after their aunt, who resides at Barry Community Care Center and will turn 89 this year. They realize their decision presents a rare opportunity for Pike County because, to their knowledge, she never sold any of her original works. “She loved her paintings. She wouldn’t sell them,” Jim Miles said. Although many of Marie’s paintings were created for spe-

cific juried art shows, they were always marked, “Not for sale.” “She painted to win. And she did,” Miles said. Among the collection to be auctioned are the complete set of

“She marched to her own drummer. She had her own way of doing everything.”

Jim Miles

Marie Miles' nephew Pike County scenes from which Farmers State Bank in Pittsfield produced limited edition prints, used in a bank promotion. Local landmarks in the series include Historic East School, the old Pittsfield jail, Cedar Cave near Detroit, the Perry Church of Christ and two views of the Pike County Courthouse. Also included in the collection are still lifes and rural scenes plus a portrait of Everett Franklin, a well-loved janitor at Pittsfield High School. “These are all magnificently framed,” Miles said, explaining that his aunt was a trained woodworker and created her own frames to complement each painting. “She made them and stained them. They’re all color coordinated, whatever the picture demanded.” In a 1979 interview in Pike

Press, Marie Miles described her kinship with the medium of oil painting: “There is something about the texture of oil paint – it’s a little like peanut butter. You can shove it around, you can do so much with it…I like oil because I can rethink it, noodle it, kind of love it along.” Reflecting on his aunt’s life in the arts, Jim Miles said, “She saw herself as an artist with the capacities to create images. She marched to her own drummer. She had her own way of doing everything.” Jim Miles, now retired from a career with Monsanto, is the namesake of Marie’s late husband, Pittsfield pharmacist James A. Miles. He was raised from age 12 by James and Marie and recalls Marie’s extensive contributions to the theatrical productions of the late Jon Robb, Pittsfield’s iconic and influential theatre director. “When I was in high school, Jon Robb was at our kitchen table all the time. They would go through the script, talk about ideas. They were a great pair.” In her 1979 interview, Marie likened doing four or five play sets in a year to “redecorating your house that many times a year.” Marie commented on the sets for “My Fair Lady,” “Camelot” and “The Heiress” as standouts in her memory. “I just met such wonderful kids,” she mused. “I enjoy working with people. I enjoy the challenge of the play.” In later years, Jim Miles said

Marie was known as a very private person but her zest for life continued, including an aroundthe-world trip to celebrate her 80th birthday and a trip to the Arctic Circle some years later. “She never had any children of her own, but she did what mothers need to do for the children who were around her,” Miles said. “Because she didn’t have her own children, she was looking for an outlet to give back to the community.” In the silent auction to be held June 25 at Courtyard Café in Pittsfield, Marie Miles will once again make a substantial contribution to the dramatic arts in Pike County. Theatre sets are ephemeral, a part of the magic that is live theatre, images that disappear when the final curtain closes. In contrast, the framed paintings of Marie Miles will now find their way into private collections, celebrating the scenes and experiences she knew in her years of living in Pike County. In her 1979 interview, Marie said, “If I kept my house picked up and put away, they could put on my tombstone, ‘She kept a clean house.’ I would rather do something you can stand back and look at…I just enjoy creating.” Jim Miles is obviously content with the decision to donate Marie’s art collection to further the cause of drama at Pittsfield High School, seeing it as a fitting legacy. “An artist – that’s what she is,” Miles said.

Light refreshments will be served and the winning bids will be announced at 8 p.m. Bidding will be anonymous.

Bids can be placed throughout the week, up until the conclusion of the event Wednesday evening. Restaurant personnel will have information for anyone wishing to place bids throughout the week’s exhibition. Spencer Boren, who directs drama at PHS along with his wife, Kayla, expects approximately 25 paintings to be offered for sale. Anyone with any questions about the silent auction may contact Boren at 217-248-4975. No specific project has been identified for the silent auction proceeds, Boren said, although improved technology for the PHS theatre is a possible use.

Pine to attend Land of Lincoln honor flight June 10 By jeanette wallace Pike Press Chuck Pine, a veteran of the Vietnam War, was scheduled to participate in the 27th Land of Lincoln Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. Tuesday, June 10. He'll be flying with 18 veterans from WWII, 28 from the Korean War and 42 others from the Vietnam War. Pine was drafted into the Army in December of 1966 and his service ended in November of 1968. While in Vietnam between January and November 1968, Pine was a radio and switchboard operator in the Mobile Riverine Force in the Mekong Delta. According to Pine, the conditions in Vietnam were difficult. "There were a lot of mosquitos and a lot of rats," Pine said. Although he was involved in some battles, Pine explained that

he was fortunate enough not to be injured. But he did come close. "I happened to be guarding an ammo tank at the time and that's what they were aiming for," Pine said. When he left the Army, Pine worked in Jacksonville at what is now the Reynolds factory. It was there that he met his wife, Sharon, and they've been married for 45 years. They have three sons, Brandon, Derrick and Tyler. Pine explained that there was a big difference in people's attitudes toward him from when he left for Vietnam and when he came home. He said that people hugged him and shook his hand when he left in January. "But something happened in '68. News media kind of turned on us and a lot of people wouldn't talk to me," Pine said. He was told not to wear his uniform when he came back home because people might

throw chicken or hog's blood on him. "I was made to kind of feel ashamed of being a Vietnam veteran for several years," Pine said. Pine is still very active when it comes to matters that involve veterans. When the government shut down in October and all the memorials in Washington D.C. were closed, Pine protested in Pittsfield, Bluffs and Jacksonville because he couldn't make it to D.C. "They spent more money to close it down than they did to keep it open," Pine said. Pine, who lives in Bluffs now, is originally from Baylis and still owns land in Pike County. When he takes the honor flight, he and the other veterans will visit the Korean Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, the National Air and Space Musium, Marine and Air Force memorials and the Arlington National Cemetery.

Chuck Pine participated in the 27th Land of Lincoln Honor Flight June 10. Pine, a veteran of the Vietnam War, travelled with 18 veterans from WWII, 28 from the Korean War and 42 other Vietnam War veterans.

Last week's poll results School’s out and swimming pools are open.

We can always use some good news.

A. The public pool is a great place for kids to have fun. B. I prefer the wading pool in my back yard. C. I worry about sunburns and skin cancer. D. Whatever it takes to keep cool!

That’s what’s happening in Pleasant Hill this week as more than a hundred volunteers descended on the village to begin construction of a new 15,000 square foot church for the Pleasant Hill First Baptist Church congregation. That’s what we call good news. This week’s volunteers have been busy putting up the frame of the church, working alongside local volunteers from the community. Next week, another group will arrive to begin inside work such as the building’s electrical system. While in Pleasant Hill, the volunteers are staying at the school, using the school cafeteria. Local businesses have seen a boost as various supplies and food items are purchased. Free time takes the volunteers throughout our county. The organization coordinating this project is Carpenters for Christ with volunteer groups located mostly in the southern United States. Mission building projects are performed by these volunteers throughout the world. We’re fortunate to have them here, creating a valuable community resource for southern Pike County. To date the group reports being right on schedule. No accidents have occurred and spirits are high. We express appreciation to the congregation at First Baptist for their vision in undertaking this new construction and also for the many volunteers who are assisting. We look forward to the finished facility and all the good things it will bring to Pleasant Hill.

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller

Don’t mess with my cornbread! This time of year I always try catching some pan fish. I really enjoy this slow, unhurried, outdoor activity. It’s especially good after managing the deadlines of deer and turkey seasons and an occasional bass tournament. There are no seasons for bluegill and crappie. If today is unsuccessful, maybe I’ll go tomorrow… or maybe not. And there is nothing like fried fish from these varieties. Yes, fried. I remember the days when there was no such a thing as calories, carbohydrates, and cholesterol. At least I didn’t know there was. Now it seems that anything that is fried is bad for me. I really wish I could

fry the guy who found that out. He’s probably a vegetarian too! Which I heard is an old Indian word for “bad hunter.” But it looks like he’s right and I really hate that. Have you ever noticed that you can put anything in a pan of hot grease and it will come out tasting good? We used to save grease just for frying things. That’s what that ceramic jar on the stove was for. And how many of you can remember “killing” some fresh lettuce and onions in bacon grease and following that up with a piece of fried cornbread with real butter on it? Try to find that on somebody’s menu today. No, today if we eat lettuce and onions

it will be on a salad with a tablespoon of some kind of fat-free dressing. And that cornbread has turned into a club cracker. No wonder the crime level has escalated in America! I’d be mad, too, if somebody swapped my cornbread for a cracker! I just read the other day that obesity in America has reached epidemic levels. Why? I don’t know but I know it wasn’t that way when I had my jar of grease on the stove! Did you know when grease is put into food it holds that particular food together? It doesn’t matter if it is cake or hamburger, grease holds it together. Now I think there’s a great parallel here that we need

to see. Have you noticed how our world is falling apart? Yep, that’s right. It happened when we took the grease out… Oh the ramblings of those who hate to diet. ■ Gary Miller is an outdoorsman from Harrowgate, Tenn. From Outdoor Truths, Hunting and Fishing for Answers, Volume I.

A father’s greatest goal Pickings from Guest Column: Roger Campbell


nock on our front door and you’ll find yourself staring at a plaque containing the following quote of Joshua (of wall falling fame): “AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD,” an appropriate goal for any father at any time, but an especially fitting one to ponder on Father’s Day. Who was this committed father whose words expressing his family goal remain familiar to millions after all these years? Joshua had lived an exciting and sometimes dangerous life. He had worked as a spy, served as top assistant to Moses, became the leader of his nation after the death of Moses, was an extremely successful military leader and a possessor of such strong faith that even the walls of mighty Jericho fell before him as he obediently followed the strange orders issued to him from Headquarters. But his greatest goal in life was the acceptance of his faith by his family so they could serve the Lord together. We don’t know how many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren made up Joshua’s descendents. His life spanned one hundred ten years so it’s likely his conviction that his entire family would serve the Lord encompassed a large number of people, but his faith was up to the occasion so he included them all in his now famous declaration. Does this mean that Joshua’s entire family immediately embraced his faith, never rebelled and always walked with God? Probably not! Human nature and God’s respect for our individuality prevent cookie cutter conversion experiences. Nevertheless, complete family commitment was his goal and he expected his prayer to ultimately be answered so he declared his confidence it would happen in concise terms that have endured the test of time. Joshua’s powerful position may have been an obstacle to members of his family following his advice or desiring his reputation as a man who walked with God. Barriers to his direction by his children may have seemed higher and more difficult to scale than the walls of Jericho, but those solid walls had been broken down by faith so why not these emotional ones? Some of Joshua’s family may have been wayward as year 110 approached and this determined conqueror on his deathbed may have said through gritted teeth: “We will serve the Lord,” even if it meant some would come to faith and be involved in the service of God after he was gone. Mothers have gained the respect of the world for their powerful praying. Most can name mothers whose prayers have made a difference: Susannah Wesley, the mother of John and Charles Wesley; the mother of John Newton whose son went from being a slave trader to a minister of the gospel and wrote “Amazing Grace,” and others. But Fathers pray too. And we ought to honor them for their faith and faithfulness. Jesus told His hearers about the prodigal son whose journey to the far country moved his father to pray for and expect his return. This would be a good day to tell your father how much you appreciate him. And, if you’re a prodigal, it’s time to answer your father’s prayers by respecting his faith and heading home. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ■ Roger Campbell is an author, a broadcaster and columnist who was a pastor for 22 years.

pike’s past

25 Years Ago: Lorraine cheese plant in Pittsfield to close 125 Years Ago June 6, 1889 There have been heavy rains all over the county in recent days. William Hoos of Newburg ran a narrow risk Sunday while trying to cross Bay Creek on horseback when it was bank full. They were washed downstream and all of a sudden horse and rider went out of sight. Will came out quite a distance below where he entered. Oklahoma fever is raging in Time. Henry Farris and Mat Williams left for there yesterday. The M.E. church in Time is having a bell put up. The sexton, who has had the bell suspended in the park, was practicing all day Saturday, much to the amusement of the boys. Veteran engineer, Washington McCann of Milton is again in the St Louis, Naples and Peoria packet trade where he has been for the last 40 years, excepting the past two years when he ran to New Orleans. El Dara is a good place for a dry goods store. A good merchant in our town will save many El Daraites many trips to Pittsfield and Barry. A.B. Fields will have singing at the Detroit Christian church every Sunday afternoon. A cordial invitation to all. 100 Years Ago June 10, 1914 Oren Dell, while riding his motorcycle Saturday afternoon on the Pittsfield square, met with an accident by which both bones of his right leg were broken between the ankle and his knee. A frightened horse caused Dell to strike the edge of a stone walk. He is the son of John Dell, of southeast of town. In the past week a son has been born to Benjamin Bauer of the Independence neighborhood—their second child. The stone and brick for the new front for the Farmers State Bank arrived last week and this week are being set by Ed Huseman, who is an artist in his line. Barney Petty and Miss Gertrude Bauers were married at the court house Saturday. Both reside south of town and the groom is the third son of Henry Petty.

Dr. Smith, assisted by Dr. Shastid, operated on Mrs. John Dean, north of town for appendicitis and gall stones. By the operation, ten gall stones were removed, two of which were said to have been the largest ever seen by the operators. The operation seems to have been a success. Attorney Oliver Barrett, of Chicago, is here to spend a day or two with his mother, Mrs. Ellen Barrett. 75 Years Ago June 7, 1939 Pike County, for the first time in its history, has a two million dollar bank. The Farmers State hit the $2,000,000 mark June 1. Judge A. Clay Williams, president of the bank’s board of directors, had predicted it three years ago. The Farmers State Bank observed its 50th anniversary last January 25th. This is a story of Pike county people who have not been stopped by Depression and drouth and tremendous losses of savings invested in stocks and bonds of now defunct companies. The New Canton State Bank and the State Bank of Rockport were both finally dissolved in circuit court Tuesday. The folly of disarming a citizenry in the name of either pacifism or crime prevention was brought home to a group of Pittsfield businessmen in a Rotary meeting at Cardinal Inn last Thursday noon. The first anniversary of the dedication of the Pioneer Park Tabernacle was held at 2:30 p.m. Sunday June 4. Rev. Amos Crawford was the guest speaker. Rock Hill defeated the West Grove baseball team by the score of 10 to 8 Sunday. The game was dotted with numerous errors by both teams. The establishment of a Kinderhook Community high school was recently approved. Residents of 14 sections of Atlas Township have filed a petition to be annexed to the Pittsfield high school district. 50 Years Ago June 10, 1964 Community Unit School District No. 10 announced several personnel changes this week.

Also Charles Ferguson, East Pike agriculture teacher for the past six years, will teach ag in Pittsfield high school. Mrs. Zona Hack, commerce teacher at East Pike, has resigned. She will be replaced by Mrs. Clara Durall, who has been teaching commerce at West Pike high school. The Pike County board of supervisors agreed to establish a county law library. It will be financed by a fee of $1 charged on all civil cases processed through circuit court, with a few exceptions. Attorney Paul Grote appeared before the board and asked for the establishment of such a library. It will be located in the room in the courthouse currently occupied by law volumes. The room will continue to be available for certain county committee meetings. David Awbrey has returned from Westminster College, Fulton Mo., where he recently finished his junior year. He plans to attend summer school at MacMurray College. The massive cornice stones, weighing around 3,000 pounds apiece, are being removed from the First National Bank as part of a massive remodeling project. K. C. Barber is the contractor. An airstrip west of Pittsfield, which belongs to George Schuster, will be lengthened to a useable length of approximately 1800 feet. Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Grimes, Pittsfield, are parents of a daughter born June 7.

25 Years Ago June 7, 1989 Universal Foods Corp. of Milwaukee Friday announced plans to close its Lorraine Cheese plant in Pittsfield. Lorraine currently employs 58, and has employed as many as 65.

The Coonridge Digest: Freida Marie Crump

The Sunday of the great Methodist meltdown Greetings from the Ridge I knew we were in trouble when the altar candles started to sag. Our little church can tolerate almost anything temporal or spiritual but the atmospheric conditions last week truly tested our patience. Our church’s air conditioning system had served us well for 20 years then on the first hot Sunday of the summer it had the audacity to die right before the service started. Being a biblical-based congregation we immediately called a committee meeting, and the trustees decided to raise the windows. No one could remember the last time those stained glass structures had last been hoisted up but it was at least three paintjobs ago. No amount of ecumenical tugging could get them to budge. They were stuck as tight as the finance committee. The prescribed hour was fast approaching and a decision had to be made. Should we cancel church or not? Our grandparents would have scoffed as such a question having spent their lives sweating it out during wet weddings and fetid funerals, but back in those days folks were tougher and didn’t run from air cooled cars to freezing department stores once the mercury passed 80. Hank Briggs reminded me that many churches are still with out air conditioning. I had to remind Hank that those churches had windows that would open.

It was finally decided that although we’d suffer in the heat we’d agonize more in the esteem of the congregation down the street when they found out we’d called off church for such a wimpy reason. The church bells rang and the siege began. Herb and I customarily sit directly behind Yulanda McBride, a delightful old relic who weighs all of 82 pounds, wears dark buttoned-up dresses that reach her neck, and to my knowledge has never sweat in her life. I’ve always had a suspicion that she has Freon in her veins. As we perspired our way through the opening hymn, our fingers sticking to page 347 of the hymnal and the back of my skirt clinging desperately to my unflattering rear, I noticed the Yulanda wasn’t even breathing hard. I wanted to slap her. . . in the name of God, of course. During the summer months our church plays “stump the piano player” by shouting out the hymns that they’d like to sing. When the preacher asked for another song we all searched the indexes desperately for hymns with a cooling quality. Several were discarded out of hand with “Bringing in the Sheaves” too reminiscent of hard work and sunshine, “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning” smacking of fire, and “Nearer My God to Thee” perhaps too much a prediction of what would happen if we didn’t get a little air moving through the place. I suggested “Breathe on Me, Breath of God,” and the organist snickered. Thinking they weren’t taking me seriously, I piped

Pickings (continued from A4) Press will feature a column entitle “Coonridge Digest,” written by Ken Bradbury under the pseudonym of Frieda Marie Crump. Tammi Zumwalt, 13, and Tracie Williams, 14, are leading the effort of the Pittsfield Producers 4-H Club to raise funds to help make the Pike County courthouse handicapped accessible. Pleasant Hill Mayor William Shotts recently presided at the ribbon cutting for the Great River Road Campground at the Pike County fairgrounds. Others present at the ceremony were Rick Rodhouse, president of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce, Judy Capps, member of the Chamber’s Ambassador club, and Charles Yokem, Steve Goodman and Bill Graham, all members of the Pleasant Hill village board. Mayor Shotts also announced that the former Pleasant Hill garment factory will be reoccupied and operated by its former tenant, Bill Calicott of Louisiana, Mo. the factory is expected to employ between 13 and 18 persons. Chris Davenport has been selected by Pittsfield American Legion Post 152 to attend Premier Boys State June 3-9 at Eastern Illinois University at Charleston. He is the son of Ray and Judy Davenport of Pittsfield. Angela Kirk, daughter of Don and Annelle Kirk of Griggsville, has been selected to at-

tend Girls State June 11-17 at Eastern Illinois University at Charleston. 10 Years Ago June 9, 2004 Two Farmington, Mo. area men are in custody after a day-long search related to the theft of anhydrous ammonia. An airfoil helicam was used to help apprehend the two. The Eighth annual Relay for Life will be held this weekend at the Griggsville park, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Pittsfield World War II veteran Merle Willard received a certificate of appreciation from the French Consul General in a ceremony in Springfield Friday. Nebo native Kenneth Stark will be awarded an honorary bachelor of science degree Friday evening at Illinois College in Jacksonville. This year, Pittsfield High School senior Jade Roseberry was presented with the Jon Robb Award for the Performing Arts by Michelle Westbrook at the senior honors banquet. A celebration at Kepley House was held June 4 in honor of Ann Ferguson, retiring administrator. Ferguson’s service at Kepley House has spanned more than three decades. ■ Pickings from Pike’s Past is compiled by Michael Boren.

up with “Shall We Gather at the River,” with a similar response. If you think your sermons are long now, try listening to one with a trickle of perspiration creeping down the back of your neck, gathering other little streams along your shoulders then rushing headlong toward the base of your spine. I was afraid to get up again fearing that the varnish on the church pew had somehow made a chemical combination with the synthetic fibers in my skirt and that I’d either be stuck there until Advent or I’d have to go home wearing only a slip. When the preacher asked for joys and concerns every hand in the place went up. He waved us off, saying, “Other than the obvious,” and every hand went down. We prayed for a miracle of cooling but God had obviously chosen to attend the neighboring Baptist church that morning, unable to put up with our heated sanctuary. It got so hot by the end of the pastoral prayer that Herb couldn’t even sleep.

By the time we reached the final hymn we were pretty much a wilted gathering of sweat-soaked souls and when Terri Collingsworth suggested, “His Eye is on the Sparrow” we started checking for dead birds. I couldn’t help myself and when sweat-less Yulanda walked out of her pew I said, “I don’t see how you can stand this heat at your age.” She smiled a smile of courteous condemnation and reminded me that my concern should be focused on the temperature in the afterlife. It would have been unseemly to start a wrestling match with a 90-year-old Methodist so I went home and cranked up the air. 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.

No, I’m not pulling your leg!

irst those Texans took our jobs. Then they took our money. Now they want our leg. Well, to be precise, General Santa Anna’s leg. But a group of Illinois soldiers stole it fair and square – back in 1845. During the U.S. war with Mexico, Santa Anna skedaddled from the battle on a donkey and left his prosthetic leg behind in a carriage along with a bag of gold and a freshly cooked chicken. A group of Illinois soldiers ate the chicken, gave the Army the gold and kept the leg. One of the soldiers traveled about Illinois charging 10 cents for a peek at the appendage. Ah, those were the days, when entrepreneurship reigned supreme in the Prairie State. But today we are hobbled by high taxes, crippled by debt and staggered with high unemployment. Texas, on the other hand, has pulled itself up by the bootstrap. The Lone Star State has no income tax. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the country. And the state is running a

surplus. And they have accomplished much of this at the expense of Illinois. Between 1995 and 2010, $2 billion in personal income shifted from the Land of Lincoln to Lone Star State according to “How Money Walks” by Travis Brown. In fact, National Review noted earlier this year that a greater percentage of people was moving out of Illinois than any other state but Rhode Island. By contrast, Texas’ population grew 5.2 percent between 2010 and 2013 a higher percentage than anywhere but tiny North Dakota and Washington, D.C. But, cheer up, folks. We’ve still got the leg. And Texas wants it. The leg is on display at the Illinois State Military Museum. Back in April, folks at the San Jacinto Historical Museum in Texas started a White House petition drive to have the leg returned to Texas. But Illinois is digging in its heel and not letting go. After all, this isn’t the first time some foreign power has sought our leg. Back during World War II, Demo-

crats wanted to give the leg to Mexico as a gesture of good will, but Republicans gave that idea the boot, saying their opponents “didn’t have a leg to stand on.” Santa Anna isn’t particularly liked on either side of the border. Texans view him as the villain who led the slaughter at the Alamo. While Mexicans view him as the leader who lost much of their country’s territory to the United States. Despite this antipathy, he hasn’t been relegated to a historical footnote. Throughout his time in Mexican politics, Santa Anna managed to overthrow the Mexican government, be exiled from his country and lead Mexico into a fiscal crisis 11 times. And you thought Rod Blagojevich was bad. But Santa Anna was worse – and I’m not pulling your leg. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– n Scott Reeder is a veteran statehouse –reporter and the journalist in residence at the Illinois Policy Institute.

Phillip Graham, 10-year-old son of Danny and Jenny Graham washes his cow in preparation for the upcoming fair and 4-H show circuit. Graham will be showing cows that are related too, if not direct descendants, of the cattle his father and grandfather, Phil Graham showed when they were youngsters. The Grahams all live in the Milton area.

By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press With county fairs and 4-H show season just around the corner, families like the Grahams in Milton are doing what they have been doing for years – getting cattle ready to show. “My dad showed cattle, I showed cattle and this will be my son, Phillip’s second year showing cattle,” Danny Graham said. “He’s 10 and showed last year. I was probably nine when I started showing.” The Grahams all have shown Angus, which they raise on their farm near Milton. According to Danny Graham, the process of getting a cow ready to show is labor intensive. “They are big animals so you want to make sure they are gentle,” Graham said. “We start by tying one up and then we pet it, comb it, scratch it and wash it to get it used to us. Some are harder to get gentle than others.” Graham said cows love water

and they love a cool bath on a hot day and that also helps them get used to the human touch. “We don’t worry about the show stick or the halter or any of that until we are sure they are good and gentle,” Graham said. “We worry about leading later.” After a cow is tame enough to be considered for showing, the real labor begins in training, washing and brushing. “It takes a lot of elbow grease,” Graham said. “But the rewards are it teaches a kid responsibility and that hard work and dedication will pay off.” Graham also said it allows 4-H members to meet other 4-H members with similar likes. “That’s how I met the Smithers boys, the Musgraves, we are all still friends,” he said. “We helped each other out with our show animals, watered for each other and anything that needed to be done. It promotes life-long friends and commradery.” Phillip Graham will show both an Angus steer and an Angus heifer this year.

The steer will be sold at the 4-H sale and the heifer will be taken back to the farm and bred. She will show next year as a cow in a cow/calf competition. The following year, her calf will probably be either the steer or the heifer. “Philip will be showing cattle that relatives of the one I show,” Danny said. “They are relatives of the ones my dad showed. They may not be direct descendants but they are all related.” Money from the sale of the steer will partially go into the younger Graham’s college fund and will, also, help fund next year’s show expenses. Cattle sold at the 4-H show traditionally bring a premium price, above market price. Phillip Graham says he is excited to start the show season. Last year he was a little nervous and says being in the ring with a large animal always brings a healthy amount of fear but the positives far outweigh the negatives.

WIC benefits for fruits and vegetables increased By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Press The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) received an increase in the amount allocated for fruits and vegetables effective June 2. Children ages one and older will receive an additional $2 per month raising the fruits and vegetable vouchers from $6 to $8. “It can be fresh, canned or frozen,” Mary Moss, WIC coordinator at the Pike County Health Department, said.

WIC is a USDA-funded public health nutrition program created to reduce the nutritional risk of low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children up to the age of five. WIC provides food, nutrition education and access to healthcare. The program serves more than 140,000 children statewide. “This increase will allow for more fruits and vegetables to be available to these children,” Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) Secretary Michelle R.B. Saddler, said. “Fruits and vegetables provide

many nutrients that support a healthy weight and lifestyle.” According to Moss, children get approximately $50 a month in food vouchers through the WIC program. “Seeing the increase may encourage them, knowing that it’s important in their daily diet,” Moss said. For more information about the WIC program, visit or call the Pike County Health Department at 217-285-4407 ext. 137. “If anyone is interested in seeing if they qualify, feel free to make an appointment,” Moss said.

How to manage back pain Back pain can have a debilitating impact on those suffering from it. But even those who have endured back pain might be unaware of just how far-reaching and expensive it can be. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, lower back pain is the foremost cause of job disability around the world. The NINDS study, in which researchers examined data from 117 studies conducted in 47 different countries, found that one in 10 people suffer from lower back pain, a discovery that no doubt startles many people, especially when considering the global scope of the study. A condition that affects 10 percent of the world may seem impossible to prevent, but there are steps men and women suffering from back pain can take to make their condition more manageable. n Contact your physician. A bruised back or mild stiffness may not require the help of a physician. Such issues will likely disappear shortly enough to make medical attention unnecessary. But EmblemHealth recommends that people suffering with back pain visit a doctor if they experience numbness or tingling in their back, legs or arms; suffer pain after a fall; and/or are feeling pain with additional symptoms, including fever, trouble passing urine or unexplained weight loss.

Such symptoms indicate that the back pain is more than just a temporary nuisance, and something that may need to be treated by a professional. When a physician visit is necessary, the doctor will attempt to understand just what's causing the pain. Identifying the cause can help to develop an appropriate and effective course of treatment. The most common causes of back pain include bulging discs, pinched nerves, arthritis, muscle spasms or strains, and sciatica, a nerve condition that goes from the lower back through the hips. Some cases of back pain are a result of poor posture or tight muscles n Exercise regularly. When speaking with a physician, men and women who suffer from back pain should discuss exercise as a treatment method. Regular exercises such as riding a bicycle or swimming can improve strength and flexibility in the back. More complex exercises, such as yoga, also have been recommended to sufferers of back pain. Yoga improves flexibility and builds strength while also promoting strong bones which can reduce a person's risk of injury. Injuries that limit movement can increase a person's risk of developing back pain, so an exercise routine that builds flexibility and strong bones can be an effective way to manage or even prevent back pain.

* Sit up straight at work. Many people can trace their back pain to their offices, where uncomfortable chairs and poorly positioned desks don't provide the necessary support men and women need to reduce or prevent back pain. Chairs should provide adequate lower back support, and desks should be at a comfortable height that does not force the body to hunch or place itself in another awkward position just to get work done. When sitting, make sure you are sitting upright with your shoulders relaxed and your body against the back of your chair. n Don't resort to too much rest. Long-time sufferers of back pain no doubt recall a time when physicians would prescribe rest to treat back pain. But too much sitting around has now been shown to worsen back pain. If you must rest, do so for only a day or two before gradually becoming more active. Swimming or walking can be great and less physically taxing ways to acclimate your body to physical activity after resting for a day or two due to back pain. Studies have shown that back pain is prevalent across the globe. Coping with back pain is often painful, but there are healthy ways for men and women to manage their back pain and start feeling good again.

Natural ways to alleviate anxiety No one is immune to anxiety, which can be triggered by a number of factors. Many people who deal with anxiety can trace their episodes to family, finances or work, but other circumstances, including personal health or even fear of traveling, can lead to anxiety that's difficult to manage. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting roughly 40 million adults age 18 and older. Anxiety also is a significant issue in Canada, where the Anxiety Disorders Association of Canada reports that such disorders are the most prevalent mental illness affecting Canadian adults. While many rely on prescription medication to treat their anxiety, those suffering from anxiety disorders may want to discuss natural alternatives to such medications with their physicians. The following are some natural ways to treat anxiety that may help anxiety sufferers deal with their disorder without the need for medication. n Chamomile: An ancient medicinal herb, chamomile is experiencing a resurgence of sorts. The dried flowers of chamomile contain many terpenoids and

flavonoids that increase its medicinal properties. In fact, a study at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center that examined the efficacy of chamomile at treating generalized anxiety disorder found that patients who took chamomile supplements for eight weeks experienced a significant decrease in their symptoms compared to those given a placebo. Chamomile tea has grown increasingly popular in recent years, but those suffering from anxiety may want to discuss with their doctors chamomile supplements as a means to treating their anxiety. n Valerian: Used to treat insomnia, valerian is a sedative herb that is best taken at night. Some people drink valerian tea to reduce their anxiety, but the aroma of valerian tea can be unpleasant. If that aroma is simply too pungent, valerian can be taken as a capsule or tincture. But valerian should really only be taken at night thanks to its sedative compounds. n Exercise: Treating anxiety does not necessarily have to involve putting something into your body. Exercise can be an effective antidote to anxiety, especially for those people whose anxiety can be traced to their con-

cerns about their long-term health. Regular exercise improves mood and supports long-term health, and for some anxiety sufferers that's enough to alleviate their condition. Even a relatively short 30-minute daily workout can be very effective at treating anxiety. n Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega3 fatty acids can benefit the body in a variety of ways. Though most widely associated with promoting cardiovascular health, omega-3 fatty acids also have been linked to alleviating anxiety. In a 2011 study published in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, students who received omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids before an exam experienced a 20 percent reduction in anxiety symptoms over those who received a placebo. Sources of omega-3 fatty acids include salmon and other oily, coldwater fishes. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements also are available, but men and women should discuss such supplements and any potential side effects with their physicians before taking anything. Anxiety is a significant concern for millions of people across the globe. But those suffering from anxiety may be able to treat their conditions naturally.

Which doctor to see and when Women who split their health management among different doctors may not know which doctor to turn to when their health comes into question. They may ask themselves, "Is this issue best addressed by a family doctor or a gynecologist?" Answers to such questions depend on personal preferences and the type of condition you're looking to treat. A woman who feels more comfortable with one specific doctor may see him or her for a variety of health concerns, provided that doctor offers certain services. However, there are instances when certain healthcare questions are best answered by specialists. The following information can help women determine which doctor to see when certain situations arise. n Annual physicals: Gynecologists and family doctors can conduct physical examinations. Both can order blood lab tests and

urinalysis to check cholesterol levels and for any vitamin deficiencies. Heart rate, blood pressure, weight, and height are other screenings that can be handled at either office. n Bacterial and yeast infections or urinary tract infections: A general practitioner or gynecologist can address these infections. However, some women feel more comfortable discussing genital issues with their gynecologists. A gynecologist may be more experienced at identifying problems and ordering appropriate follow-up exams. A family doctor may not require an examination unless you request it and may treat broad symptoms. n Colds and coughs: In theory, a gynecologist may be able to diagnose and treat common health ailments. But the majority of a gynecologist's work concerns the female reproductive system, so common colds and coughs are best left to general practi-

tioners who diagnose respiratory and bronchial conditions daily. n Infertility: It is best to visit a gynecologist or obstetrician to talk about any infertility issues. Such doctors have more intimate knowledge of the female reproductive system and could be more learned regarding the latest therapies and studies pertaining to fertility. n Cancer screening: PAP tests and breast exams can be performed at either doctor's office, although patients may feel more comfortable if a gynecologist performs these screenings. It is important to note that not all gynecologists are obstetricians. Some handle women's reproductive issues but do not deliver children. Patients who prefer a doctor knowledgeable about reproductive health and won't be busy handling child deliveries should select a gynecologist.

Chase ends in Pike with the arrest of two By beth zumwalt Pike Press A vehicle chase that started in Missouri ended early Monday afternoon, near Rockport. The driver of the pursued vehicle, Matthew R. Tyson, 23, Kansas City, Kans. has been charged in Pike County, Ill. with possession of a stolen vehicle and driving while suspended. He is lodged in the Pike County Jail awaiting court appearance. The incident started when Pike County Illinois officials were notified regarding a car chase that started near Bowling Green, Mo. and had continued across the Champ Clark Bridge in Louisiana into Pike County Illinois. The officers had already determined at that time, the vehicle, a 2010 Pontiac G6, had been stolen from a suburb in the Kansas City, Kans. area.

Pike County officers learned that a Louisiana police officer was in pursuit of the car and that it had turned off Rt. 54 and was in the Rockport bottoms area. Before arriving at the scene it was learned the vehicle had become stuck in the mud, along the Mississippi River levee, along Kiser Creek Road. The officer from Louisiana had apprehended Tyson and a female passenger, Jessica Linn Forshee, 24. Officers searched the vehicle and found another set of stolen license plates in the vehicle. Forshee was not charged with any offense and has been released. Assisting in the investigation was the Pike County, Mo. Police Department, Louisiana Police Department, Bowling Green Police Department and the Pike County Illinois Sheriff’s Department.

Saukee Summer Basketball Camp

Submitted photo

PHS graduating senior Traye Labby went to state May 30 in both the 100 and the 200 meter. He was given the traditional fire engine ride out of town.

Labby goes to state By beth zumwalt Pike Press Traye Labby was the lone Saukee to represent Pittsfield High School at the boys state track meet, May 23-24. Labby took second in the sectional in both the 100 and the 200 to punch his ticket to the state track meet. Unfortunately, his trip to state was disappointing as Labby pulled a muscle in one of the early pre-lims.

“I pulled a muscle during the 100,” the senior said. “I scratch from the 200, thinking I might still have a shot in the 100, but it didn’t happen.” Labby said he was still proud he made it to state and that even with an injury, he didn’t get last. He is the son of Julie Walters and Lyndell Labby. He plans to work for the next year and then join the National Guard on the buddy plan with his younger brother, Laken.
