Winchester special service area progressing By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times Scott County Commissioners may be coming closer to creating a special service area in the county to help fund the ambulance. According to Scott County State’s Attorney Mike Hill, the commissioners will discuss the matter at next Monday's, March 18 meeting. The matter was presented to the board a few weeks ago and tabled. Scott County EMS President Randy Dolen said he was unaware the matter was coming up for discussion. “The last I knew they had tabled it,� Dolen said. What the commissioners will discuss is unknown. “I don’t know that they will take any action, but I know they are going to discuss it,� Hill said. The Scott County Ambulance is 30 years old this year and has always been funded through donations, fees for calls and fundraisers. But the number of board members has dwindled and so has revenue. The ambulance board is ask-

ing that the commissioners create a special service area. Such an entity would be able to levy a tax that would generate funds for the ambulance. “There is no such thing as an ambulance district,� Lynnette Schaffer, secretary/treasurer, said earlier this year when the possibility of a special service area was first mentioned. “Illinois does not recognize ambulance districts as taxing bodies.� As with any tax increase the amount of increase the property owner will see, depends on the value of the property. Property owned by the Winchester Historical Society, would only increase, $1.14 per year. Several houses in the Hoots and Suttles Road areas would increase approximately $265 per year. Houses on Jefferson Street in Winchester would see an approximate $125 per year increase. Commercial property would see the biggest increase with Illinois Valley Paving increasing by $991, Alsey Refractories, $2,127, WIN Production, $5,229 (See, SERVICE AREA, A2)

THE

Stabbing victim arrested By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Soon after being released from the hospital March 8, the victim in last week’s stabbing incident behind Pitt Stop Restaurant in Winchester, was arrested on allegations of domestic battery and violation of an order of protection. Matthew Richardson, 39, of Springfield, appeared in Scott County Circuit

Court Monday morning where bail was set at $25,000 and a public defender was appointed to represent him. Richardson was the victim of a stabbing incident the morning of March 5. He was taken to Memorial Hospital in Springfield and was released from care March 8. Soon after, an arrest warrant was served on him. The stabbing incident involved Richardson, Jason Pittman and Jamie

Tucker. “There was an active order of protection entered in the Brown County Circuit Court naming Jamie Tucker as the protected person and Richardson as the respondent,� Scott County District Attorney Michael Hill said. “Richardson was ordered to have no contact with Tucker.� Richardson violated that order of protection (See, ARREST, A2)

Winchester penny carnival going ‘under the sea’ By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times The Winchester PAT is planning on a nautical-themed Penny Carnival this year. The Carnival is set to take place on Saturday, March 30 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Grade School and the theme will be “Under the Sea.� “We try to come up with a slightly different theme each year,� PAT President Angie Brown said. “This year we decided on an under the sea theme and will coordinate the decorations and possibly some games around it.� The Penny Carnival is much more than just games for the kids to play. There will also be a silent auction on 30 to 40 different gift baskets as well as a raffle on five different items. “What is special about the silent auction is that each class does their own themed basket,� Brown said. “The kids bring in items and come up with an idea for their own special basket. This lets them have a stake in the carnival.� Every class from pre-K through eighth grade does a basket and they can also do an art project to go along with it. “One year the kids made a stool and each one put their hand or finger print on it,� Brown said. “This year they are doing a bags set and the kids have put their hand prints on it. The parents love to bid on those because it is something their child has helped to make. The kids love to see how much their baskets and art projects

bring in.� Raffle tickets can be purchased for a chance to win an Air Pod, which is wireless ear buds, a FujiFilm Instax camera, karaoke machine, American Girl doll or $100 cash. Tickets are $3 for one ticket or $5 for two tickets. The Penny Carnival is one of the main fundraisers for the PAT bringing in between $10 to $12,000 last year. “All of the money we raise right now is earmarked to pay off the Promethean boards purchased a couple of years ago,� Brown said. “If there is anything left over after making those payments, then we try to fulfill any requests the teachers might have.� Brown said this year they have fulfilled a request to help fund two field trips and recently received a request to help purchase some items for a classroom. One thing Brown did want to do is to thank the parents for their participation in this event every year. “I always try to send a letter home to all of the parents and ask them for help during this event and they always manage to come through for us,� she said. “Our PAT members set up the carnival and our parent volunteers usually help run the many games we have for the kids. We also enlist the help of the older kids to help with the games and in return they get a free ticket to Six Flags.� Tickets are 25 cents each or an armband is $10 for unlimited games.

Winchester Council discusses water interconnect By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times A representative from Benton and Associates was in attendance at the March 6 Winchester City Council meeting to discuss the water interconnect with Scott Morgan Greene Water Coop (SMG). Discussion on an emergency interconnect with SMG was started last December when the city found itself down to just one working well. The pump at this well tends to freeze up in extremely cold weather and the weather at the time was expected to be below freezing. Had this well gone down, the city would be without water. An interconnect with SMG, however, would allow the city to get water from them.

Adam Fox explained to the council the progress made so far. “We have done a preliminary evaluation of a potential interconnect at the Coultas Road area where you have an existing main,� Fox said. “SMG has one as well running parallel to yours so that would be the most logical place for the interconnect so we did some preliminary hydraulic evaluation of that area and probably cost.� Fox said they looked at it two ways – an emergency interconnect where SMG could supply water to Winchester and a two-way interconnect to where Winchester could also supply water to SMG. However, the two-way interconnect would probably not be possible. “Because of the vast difference in pressure between the your two sys-

tems, the two-way interconnect might not be possible,� Fox said. “SMG has a higher pressure of around 90 to 95 psi and your water main in that area so for you to supply water to SMG, it becomes more complicated.� The total construction cost for the one-way interconnect would be $28,500 which would include tapping the SMG main, getting across the road, tapping the city’s main and installing a meter pit and control valves. Winchester Mayor Rex McIntire said the city could do some of the work which would bring the cost down significantly. The council approved an estimate for $3,404.15 from Central Illinois Communication Services for revision and replacement of the telephone sys-

tem and network cabling. The city has been having issues with the phone service in city hall. “I think it is necessary that we do something because we have to have a telephone here eight hours a day five days a week for people to call us and for us to call out,� Alderman Bill Jacquot said. “There have been times where these phones have been out.� The new system will also allow the use of debit and credit cards for customers to pay their bills. Katie Gregory and Kevin Evans with the Civic Group, addressed the council on several items including a park work day on April 27 at Monument Park from 9:30 a.m. till noon. (See, COUNCIL, A2)

Detroit dog now living the good life in Winchester By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times The dog that spent at least one night in a dumpster in Detroit when the temperature were hovering at zero has found a good home and a good name. Diesel, is in his forever home with Amanda Hatcher in Winchester. “He is such a good, loving dog,” Hatcher said. “He gets along great with my 3-yearold lab and my two-year-old grandson.” Hatcher claimed the dog from Andy Anderson last week after the dog was dumped in the dumpster at Anderson’s Garage in Detroit. Anderson said the dog, just beyond pup stage, was half frozen, starved, dehydrated and showed signs of abuse when he was found Monday, March 3 with a temperature of 1 degree and windchill factors in the 20s. The dog had to have been placed in the dumpster over the weekend and had burrowed into the trash trying to stay warm. Hatcher said she saw Anderson’s post on FaceBook and the pictures of the dog just spoke to her. Anderson’ s priority was finding the dog and good home and he said he knew Hatcher would give it one. As of Thursday, Hatcher had claimed the dog and

taken it to the vet to get all of its shots and be checked out. “Some of the wounds he had were pretty bad and were starting to heal but I wanted the vet to check them out,” Hatcher said. “I’m also getting him neutered and cleaned up. His dew claws were just hanging so I am having those removed also.”

Anderson said the amount of public outcry about the dog restored his faith in mankind. “We had a lot of people offer to give us money for veterinarian expenses and food,” Anderson said. “We were able to find a good home for him that could afford to provide for him.”

Bluffs cracking down on pollution By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times The Bluffs Village Board is cracking down on derelict property and illegal burning. At the March 6 meeting, the board opted to change the time given to a property owner to make repairs or demolish it to 15 days instead of the previous 90. “As long as they are showing progress we won’t do anything after 15 days,” Linda Sapp, board president, said. “After our last experience, we needed to get an ordinance to speed things up.” The village recently came to an agreement with the owner of a derelict home within the village limits after the owner decided to sell the property to a neighbor, who plans to demolish the house. A second ordinance change

defined garbage. The city’s burning ordinance says only paper can be burned in an open burning setting. The board also heard the village will sponsor a yard-ofthe-month program this year. “Anyone who won in 2018 will not be eligible to win this year,” Sapp said. The Bluffs Picnic will be Aug. 17 and events are planned throughout the day, concluding with entertainment from 7-9 p.m. The tentative theme is “Coming Home.” The Board was also updated on the Senior Citizen Building. “It’s been painted, the new flooring is down and the locks have been changed,” Sapp said. “Very few keys are going to be handed out. Anyone who doesn’t use the building regularly will have to come to vil-

lage hall and ask for the key.” Sapp also advised the board the Bluffs Farmer’s Market is looking to expand its offerings. “We are looking to just call it the Bluffs Market and offer woodworking products, food, crafts, art, along with garden produce,” Sapp said. “We get lots of produce later in the summer but we were hoping have some items to bring people to town earlier in the season. We are hoping for someone to have an auction. There are lots of possibilities.” A flag and pole, along with a light, have been ordered. The flag pole is 40-foot and the flag is 8x12. Cost of the pole,with internal controls, is $4,781 and the flag is $157. The village will get a plaque in honor of Jack Moore, who recently left the village more than $46,000 in his estate.

Mowing bids topic of discussion at Winchester council meeting

By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times A lengthy discussion was had before the Winchester City Council awarded mowing contracts at the March 6 meeting. Bids were let for a twoyear contract to mow the parks and library on one contract and the cemetery on the other contract. A total of nine bids were received for mowing the parks and library and eight for the cemetery. The Cemetery Committee met earlier and brought recommendation to the city council for approval that night. Lance Barnett with L and B Lawn and Landscaping submitted the low bids for the parks and library at $5,200. Barnett was the successful bidder two years ago so the council was familiar with his work and he was unanimously approved without much discussion. When it came to the cemetery, however, two separate lengthy discussions were held prior to the ultimate approval of Richard Willis who submitted the second lowest bid at $34,575 per year. Community Sanitation of Medora submitted the lowest bid of $33,700 but they asked to pull their bid when contacted. Andy Nash and Steve Montgomery with Nash Lawn Care were on the agenda to speak prior to the vote. Nash Lawn Care had submitted a bid of $39,775, almost $5,000 more than Willis. Nash said they had bid for the contract before and decided to do it again this year. “I do have some concerns, however,” he said. “If you don’t take the low bid, then what is the main criteria for selecting a contractor.”

Winchester, Illinois

Alderman Bill Jacquot, who is head of the Cemetery Committee, said the city was ready to take the low bid. “We had called Community Sanitation of Medora to talk to them before making our decision and they asked that their bid be pulled,” Jacquot said. “He said that he was ill when the bids were let and a couple of his workers came down and looked at it for him. In retrospect, however, he didn’t think the dollar amount he submitted would be enough to do the job.” The committee then went to the second lowest bidder, which was Willis. After interviewing him they determined he met the qualifications. “There are three main things we evaluate people on when it comes to accepting a bid in addition to just the cost,” Mayor Rex McIntire said. “Those three things are the person, the experience and the manpower. Last year things didn’t work out good but this is not exact science and we are just trying to do what we can do to be fiscally responsible and get a good job done.” When it came up for a bid, Nash asked if Willis has a spraying license, pointing out if he were to do any spraying for weeds he would have to

have a commercial license or be in violation. Nash said he had a license. It was pointed out that it was not specified that the winning bidder had to spray for weeds. Nash then asked if Willis had Workman’s Comp on his employees. McIntire said the city is only contracting his service – that is up to him and doesn’t fall onto the city. A motion was made to accept Willis as the sole contractor for the 2019-20 mowing seasons at a bid of $34,575 per year with the condition that if he sprays he has to have a current spraying license. The motion passed by a 5-1 vote with Alderman Lawrence Coultas voting No. The city will now let bids for the mowing and baling of hay at the city lagoons and the cemetery. The bid sheets will contain the guidelines such as a restriction on the size of the bales. The way this works is that the winning bidder will mow the hay and keep half the bales with the other half belonging to the city. Winning bidder will be the one who offers the city the most money per bale to purchase the city’s half. Those bids will be opened at the April City Council meeting.

(Continued from A1) and Prairie Power, $6,280. These amounts would be the additional tax to be paid by the property owner. Total amount the special service area is hoped to produce is $260,192. Randy Dolen, president of the organization, said that asking for tax money is the last thing he ever wanted to do. “I’ve been against any kind of tax for as long as I’ve been involved,” Dolen said. “But we have to do something.” According to Dolen and Schaffer, the ambulance responds to an average of 26 calls per month, all handled by volunteers. Last year, the Scott County EMS responded to 317 calls, all with volunteer labor. According to Dolen and Shaffer, if the ambulance service would cease operations, Scott County residents would

be dependent on Jacksonville ambulances and would wait at least 30 minutes for a response. Dolan said the money raised from the service area would pay for EMTs to run the ambulance, taking some of the load off the volunteers. If the commissioners agree to proceed with the special service district, all land owners in the district will receive a letter advising them of the situation. Once landowners receive the letter, a public hearing will be held and and if 51 percent of the people do not object, the service area will go into affect. “Or the commissioners could choose to put the question on a ballot,” Hill said. “There are two ways to approach it. If it were to go on a ballot, it would be the spring of 2020 before the voters could vote on the matter.”

(Continued from A1) March 5 by confronting Tucker. “The preliminary determination, based upon information given by investigating officers, is that the stabbing was an act of self-defense,” Hill said. “During the altercation, in which Richardson was the primary aggressor, Jason Pittman acted to defend himself and Jamie Tucker.” Hill added that the preliminary determination is subject to revision by his office after receiving and reviewing police reports on this matter. Charges of domestic bat-

tery and violations of orders of protection are typically Class A misdemeanors punishable by a maximum of 365 days in a county jail and a fine up to $2,500. However, these charges can become felonies in some cases and Hill said he is considering filing the charges against Richardson as Class 4 felonies. A Class 4 felony carries a prison term of one to three years and a fine up to $25,000. A preliminary hearing has been set for Richardson March 28 at 1:30 p.m.

4-5. “Between the proms, graduations and Mother’s Day, we thought this weekend would work out the best,” Evans said. “There is always something going to be something competing against it. We had a good response last fall and some additional vendors want to be a part of it this time around.” The city is once again looking at a way to make more parking space available for library patrons. “The only thing John (Simmons) and I could come up with is to go north and south on Main Street and

take the curb and gutter out like it has been taken out in front of the library,” McIntire said. “That might gain us an additional six spots. The only concern John has was the gas main in that area.” Library Board member Merillyn Fedder said gaining additional parking is crucial. “If you don’t have enough parking you are not eligible for certain grants,” she said. “We currently have two parking spots available for our patrons. We have a Book Club on Monday nights and a lot of people don’t come simply because there is no place to park.”

Council (Continued from A1) “We talked a little bit about this last month but we hadn’t set a date yet,” Gregory said. “We settled on April 27 and our plans are to spread some mulch around the play areas, pull weeds, pick up sticks and sand and paint the picnic tables as well as paint the wooden trash can lids.” The city agreed to purchase the mulch last fall and Gregory also requested some outdoor paint for the picnic tables and trash can covers. She also asked if the city could possibly sand the picnic tables because last fall that was the most time consuming of all. “I would just like to thank the Civic Group for the things they do for this city,” Mayor McIntire said. “I don’t think a lot of people realize the time and effort that goes in to what you do to benefit our community.” Civic Group President Kevin Evans updated the council on the Parks and Recreation Committee events. “It has been quiet this winter but they are currently working on the Music in the Park that will be coming in June,” he said. “Once the weather breaks, the Paint the Town Group is planning to do a little more beautification on the buildings around the square.” Evans said they would also like to host another Vintage Pickers Market on May

Hello Scott County: Lots of rain Saturday and wind Saturday night.The rain comes and the wind dries it up very nice arrangement. i know where all the leaves that were in my yard are they blew into the area between my garage and back door.

The Connection Between Generosity and Prosperity

T

hroughout the Old Testament, the Israelites are told that if they keep the Law and follow God’s commandments, they will be prosperous. The Book of Joshua is clear on this connection: “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.� ( Joshua 1:8 NIV) The prophet Malachi tells the Israelites that they are robbing God when they fail to give the full tithe, and God promises to “open the floodgates of heaven� if only the people will “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.� (Malachi 3:10 NIV) The promise which God makes is that our generosity will be repaid in full. Jesus summarizes this eternal law of human nature: “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you.� (Luke 6:37-38 NIV) The apostle Paul reminds the Corinthians that stinginess and generosity have consequences as natural as the fruits which follow from their seeds: “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.� (2 Corinthians 9:6 NIV) We should not, however, be generous as an insurance policy or an investment plan. Give from a pure motive to help others, and realize that the reward may be in a different coin, as it were. –Christopher Simon

“You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.� 2 Corinthians 9:11 NIV

These religious messages are published each week in the Scott County Times as a service to our churches and are sponsored by the listed business firms.

Youth violence encompasses everything from physical fighting to bullying to sexual or physical assault.

Understanding and addressing youth-related violence

Youth-related violence is a problem that plagues communities across the country. Youth violence encompasses everything from physical fighting to bullying to sexual or physical assault. The World Health Organization states that there are certain risk factors that elevate the likelihood of engaging in or being victimized by youth violence. Individuals who are exposed early to alcohol, drugs and tobacco and who may come from homes where crime is prevalent may be more inclined to engage in violent behaviors. Low commitment to school and conduct or behavioral disorders also can increase the chances of being involved in youth violence. Children who can be violent also may come from homes that have inconsistent supervision and disciplinary practices, or a low level of attachment between parents and children. Preventing youth violence depends on a number of factors. Multifaceted strategies that address factors at the individual, family and community levels may be

needed, offers the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Promoting supportive family environments and early childhood intervention offering quality education early in life, and strengthening youth skills all may assist in keeping violent tendencies from surfacing. Connections to the community and support systems can be beneficial as well. Interventions to lessen the effects of exposure to violence and treatments to correct problematic behaviors also are advised. Some children can benefit from juvenile awareness programs, sometimes referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;scared straightâ&#x20AC;? programs. These include prison tours and exposure to criminals to help shed light on the consequences of delinquent or violent behavior. Other adolescents and teens may find value from boot campstyle disciplinary programs that redirect energy in positive ways. Youth violence can be addressed via various strategies aiming to keep young people, their schools and their communities safe.

The local library is an invaluable resource than can benefit people of all ages.

Great reasons to visit your local library

Many people have a wonderful resource at their disposal just minutes from their homes. This resource can transport them to distant lands, teach their children valuable lessons and serve as a great place to meet new friends. So what is this magical place? The local library. Libraries are filled with books for adults and children. But libraries have even more than books to offer, making them an invaluable resource for the entire community. The following are just a handful of the many great reasons to visit your local library. Q Reading may help improve long-term mental health. A 2001 study from researchers at Case Western Reserve University found that patients with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease were less active in early and middle adulthood in regard to intellectual, passive and physical activities than people who did not have AD. Young adults and middle-aged men and women who visit their local libraries and check out a good book might decrease their risk for cognitive decline later in life. Q Reading can improve your vocabulary, even as you get older. Reading for pleasure as a child has long been linked to helping young people age 16 and under develop strong reading and

math skills. But a recent study from researchers at the University of London that examined how the vocabularies of more than 9,400 people developed between the ages of 16 and 42 found that vocabulary continued to improve long after teenage years. By continuing to read books from their local libraries into adulthood, adults can further develop their vocabularies. Q Libraries provide lots of free entertainment. Libraries are home to thousands of books, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all you can find at your local branch. Newspapers, magazines, CDs, and DVDs are some examples of the forms of entertainment available at local libraries. Better yet, such entertainment is free to card holders. Q Libraries offer ageappropriate programs for kids. Some parents may lament the lack of programs available for their youngsters. Such parents are urged to visit their local libraries, which are often home to many programs that can inspire kids to read and foster their creativity. The scope of kid-friendly programs at your local library is wide and may range from singa-long sessions for toddlers to group art programs for preschool-aged children to STEM-based programs for elementary and secondary school students.
