Great Scott Community Market open house July 21 By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Though they will not be open for business, the Great Scott Community Market will be having an open house during the Winchester Community Picnic on July 21. “We thought with all of people being downtown checking out the car show and other events around the square that it would be a good time to open the store and let everyone see the progress we have made,” Great Scott Community Market Board President John Paul Coonrod said. “We plan to be open very
soon, but we just thought this would be a good opportunity to let people see where we are at.” The market is a dream that is quickly becoming a reality through community effort. In just a little over two months, $80,000 in subscriptions was raised, which was what the board figured would be needed to renovate the building and purchase inventory. Work began on renovating the building, located next to Lashmett’s Meat Market around three months ago. “The biggest chunk of time was spent gutting the building to get it ready to house the
market,” Coonrod said. “We basically had to almost tear it down to the studs and rebuild it in a way that was fitting to a grocery store.” Coonrod said the flooring is in and will be installed within a couple of days. The market took a delivery of two large coolers last week that will hold fresh produce and other perishable items, and one more piece of equipment is coming. “This particular piece of equipment is too large to fit through the door so we are going to have to take out the (See, MARKET, A2)
“We have had contractors that have put in extra time as well as friends and family who have donated their time to help us out. Marshall Chevrolet sent over a crew of guys to help us haul the equipment in. Every step of the way, the local businesses and residents have really pitched in to speed this project along.”

Vintage press donated to Old School Museum By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Another piece of Winchester history has been added to the Old School Museum (OSM) with the donation of a vintage printing press used in the early days of the Winchester Times and then later the Scott County Times. Campbell Publications President Tim Campbell donated a Chandler and Price letterpress that was once used to create posters, cards, letters, tickets and many other small printing jobs. Chandler and Price was founded in 1881 in Cleveland, Ohio by Harrison T. Chandler and William H. Price. They manufactured a variety of print machinery, dominating the print industry in the 1930’s. However, by the 1950’s offset printing had taken over the industry. Chandler and Price continued to make the open plate presses until they ceased production in 1964. Former Scott County Times owner Elmer Fedder remembers using the press. “The press was in the building when I took over the newspaper in 1963,” he said. “We purchased
two more modern presses but this one was still used for small runs or a small amount of envelopes or letterheads.” Campbell Publications took over the Winchester County Times in 1999 and renamed it Scott County Times. The press remained in the Scott County Times building until earlier this month when it was moved to the Old School Museum. Old School Museum owner Tricia Wallace said it was Fedder’s wife, Merrilyn, who first told her about the press. “Merrilyn had told me years ago that the press was still in the building and how she thought it would be a good fit for the museum,” Wallace said. “We knew that since the building had been sold, that the press would be looking for a new home so when we had contacted them about perhaps getting some of the old newspapers here, the subject of the press also came up.” Wallace said she received a phone call from Tim Campbell last February about donating the press to the Old School Museum. She was thrilled but the problem was getting the 1,500 pound cast iron (See, PRESS, A2)

Winchester saves on square lighting By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times A project that would have potentially cost the city of Winchester anywhere from $22,000 to $24,000 is now going to cost the city merely a monthly fee. As part of the $200,000 downtown renovation project, the city planned to install new lighting on the Winchester Square. However, upon talking with Ameren, a different avenue is going to be taken that will ultimately save the city the cost and expense of installing new lighting fixtures. “When we talked to Ameren about putting in these new lights and coming off their poles, they said that they had a change in their policy and that
now every light had to be metered,” Winchester Mayor Rex McIntire said. “If we were to put in our own lights, we had to have them metered. But they now have a program in place where they furnish, install and maintain all the lights for a monthly fee.” It is a win-win for Winchester because Ameren will be taking out 18 of the old steel poles and replacing them with 36 of the shorter 14 foot tall decorative poles with a globe. They will be similar to the ones installed recently by the Civic Group in the center of the square. The new poles will also be more aesthetically appealing. “These new poles will (See, SQUARE, A2)
Memorial service held for Ackerman By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times A memorial service for Lance Ackerman, 20, of Winchester was held Saturday, July 7 at Buchanan and Cody Funeral Home in Jacksonville. Ackerman was the subject of an extensive search and rescue mission from Monday, June 25 until Tuesday, July 3 when his body was found west of Winchester. Scott County Sheriff Tom Eddinger said Ackerman’s body was found just west of Winchester in a bean field. No foul play is expected. “We put up a drone and that’s
how we spotted him,” Eddinger said. “He was bout 200 yards west of the Glasgow blacktop, near the intersection of Cross Street.” Eddinger said Ackerman appeared to die by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but the investigation was continuing. He also said he suspects the time of death to be close to the time Ackerman went missing. Ackerman’s vehicle was found wrecked on North Main Street during the early morning hours of June 24. He was not at the scene when officers arrived and no one had (See, ACKERMAN, , A2)
Good news meeting at Bluffs School Board
Carmen Ensinger/Scott County Times
Splashdown! Ross Kunkel, 12, of Bluffs, comes out of the slide at the Winchester Pool Saturday afternoon. Despite the cooler temperatures, compared to earlier in the week, the pool had quite the crowd.
By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times The news was nearly all good at the Monday, July 9 Bluffs School Board meeting. Superintendent Kevin Blankenship presented a report on the building renovation and said the work was on schedule and is still expected to be completed by Aug. 13. “The windows are to arrive the middle to the late part of this week,” Blankenship said. “If they come in on schedule and we can get started replacing those the first part of next week, we should be right on schedule.” Blankenship said the demolition part of the renovation is completed and now all that has to be done is putting everything back.
If there was a sour note at the meeting, it was that the $50,000 contingency fee budgeted into the project has been tapped for $25,000. “I had hoped to not have to use any of the contingency money,” Blankenship said. “But what looks good on paper, sometimes doesn’t work out in practical application.” Included in projects that had eaten into the contingency fund, are a necessary upgrade to the building’s bell system, the movement of some water and electrical lines, and other smaller projects. The other good news was in the cafeteria report. Blankenship and the board had high praise for Amy Gillis, head cook at the school, who the board says has raised more than $25,000 in rev(See, BOARD, , A2)

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller
ven though I’m enjoying my days on the water, I’m also making plans for my time back in the woods. It seems preparation for the deer season is just as long as the season itself. At the top of my list right now is becoming proficient with my bow. Nothing would be worse than to travel for hours to hunt a nice buck and then miss it because I wasn’t comfortable with my bow. Those are the things sleepless nights are made of. I can remember when I first became interested in bow hunting. I went to a local archery shop that a friend of mine owned. I hinted to him about the uncertainty I had about my ability to hunt with such a complex piece of equipment. He assured me of my ability by setting up a bow for me and giving me a few pointers. It took only a few minutes for me to know that I could hit what I was aiming at. What I remember most was his admonition for me to, “Let the bow do all the work.” He was letting me
know that if a bow is tuned correctly, all I had to do was hold the pin (sight) on the target, slowly squeeze the trigger on my release and the arrow would go where I aimed. If my bow was tuned right, my practice sessions would be geared toward holding the pin steadier on the target and judging the distance between me and my target. After that, just let the bow do all the work. This is also a great truth for us to know about the Christian life. It seems today, there is a great frustration among those of us who call ourselves Christians. It comes from our inability to live the truths we hold dear. We want to do what’s right, but it seems we keep failing and failing. This leaves us discouraged and doubtful. The problem is not our sinfulness; the Bible says we are all sinners. The problem is in our understanding of “tuning.” You see, when we focus on “doing” and “not doing,” we fail. But when we focus on staying “in tune,” we succeed. We must
understand this truth. Jesus is our perfectly tuned tool for life. He will do the work for us. Jesus put it this way, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.” Our job is not in the doing or not doing but in abiding. It is in letting Jesus live out His life through us. Today, make sure you’re in tune and then rest in His ability to make you into what He wants you to be. ––––––––––––––––––– n Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years.

Bluffs to get new squad car By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times After a motion by Tim Welch, trustee of the Bluffs Village board and a second by Chuck Pine, Bluffs will be getting new squad car. The action was taken at the July 5 meeting, which was moved to Thursday after the Fourth of July holiday Wednesday. The village has been eyeing a new squad car for some time. The current vehicle is 17 years old
and although it has low mileage, it is having some issues. The board will use $5,000 it received earlier this year from Norfolk Southern Railroad and will also use $2,850 expected from pipeline money. The Bank of Bluffs has told Mayor Linda Sapp that they will finance this vehicle for 3 1/2 percent and will work with the town. The new vehicle will be a 2019 at the price of 2018 state bid of approximately $37, 390. and will have a 5
year warranty with 100,000 power train warranty. The board also voted to block Rt. 100 for the Aug. 18 town picnic. A detour will be marked. Vehicles will turn at the Methodist Church, go around the block and come out on Piper Street. The street will be closed for the entire day. The board has received some complaints about semis parking in town. Sapp asked the board to consider suggestions for fixing the issue.
(Continued from A1) monster from the Times building to the museum. “I asked Chuck Frost, a member of the OSM Board of Directors, to help get the press moved over here,” Wallace said. “He put together a plan, made arrangements to borrow equipment and when the time came, the move went off without a hitch.” To get the press out of the building, the group borrowed a hand operated fork lift from Paul Rueter at Marshall Chevrolet. Prairieland FS loaned the use of a fork lift truck and three people to assist with the move. Tom Hardy, Tim Harris and fork lift operator Joseph Hamilton worked alongside Frost, Wilson Newman and Andy Wallace to move the antique press to its new home in the back part of the museum. “We think it looks great where it is at and we knew there would be no moving it again because it was so heavy,” Wallace said. “That area also contains the desk from the judge’s office along with his law books so it fits right in.” Campbell expressed his pleasure at finding a location where visitors would be able to see the antique press and learn about its place in the
history of Scott County. “It is very gratifying for Campbell Publications to continue to support the Scott County area with this donation,” Campbell said. “Scott County Times is committed to our local communities and we know how fortunate the area is to have such a fine facility as the Old School Museum. We’re happy to help expand their collection.” Another bit of history was also included with the press. Mounted on the wall in the museum, above the press, is a very old sign from the front of the Times building. “While the paint is peeling badly on the sign, it clearly reads ‘Scott County Times’,” Wallace said. “Upon careful examination, you can see that underneath the top lay of paint the sign had once read Winchester Times – the name of the paper from long ago.” Wallace said earlier they had been given a box of old printer’s blocks, many of which contained photos and ads that they plan to make a display of. “We are just so happy that Mr. Campbell has donated this press to the museum,” she said. “We plan to clean it up a little some in the very near future.”
(Continued from A1) have the wiring for the electricity buried underground,” McIntire said. “All of the overhead lines will be gone, so it is going to make the downtown area more appealing.” Each light will contain a 150 watt LED bulb and doubling the amount of lights around the square will assure that the light is better distributed around the square and down the side streets. McIntire said he didn’t know when Ameren was going to install the new poles but said that the downtown renovation project is
expected to get underway by the end of this week. “We have received verbal notice to proceed with the project from the USDA today,” McIntire said Monday morning. “We have all of the contracts and everything approved so we should be starting some of the concrete work within a day or two. We have actually been waiting on approval from the USDA for the last two or three weeks.” Mcintire said the work should not interfere with the upcoming Winchester Community Picnic, scheduled for July 21.
Ackerman (Continued from A1) heard from him since. His family made an official missing person’s report June 25. Family, friends and law enforcement personal spent hundreds of man hours looking for Ackerman, who officials felt could be a danger to himself. The
Illinois State Police put a plane in the air and volunteers walked and rode fourwheelers in an attempt to find him. “We had a plane in that area the first day of the search,” Eddinger said. “And volunteers had walked part of that same field.”

Every step of the way, the local businesses and resi-
dents have really pitched in to speed this project along.” The store will be managed by Sarah Lashmett, owner of Lashmett’s Meat Market. Lashmett asked through Facebook what specific items people want the store to carry. “If anyone wants to post their grocery list of items they would like us to carry, they are more than welcome to either post it on Facebook or drop it off at my law office or the meat market,” Coonrod said. “We are right now talking with several wholesalers, so those lists are going to be key in determining what the town most wants to see on our shelves.”

Tom Hardy and Tim Harris make sure the Chandler Price letterpress is secure before hoisting it up onto the dock on the back of the Old School Museum. The vintage press was donated to the museum by Campbell Publications. The press has been housed in the Scott County Times building for more than 50 years but now has a permanent home in the Old School Museum in the gym section of the building.

There has been less waste and she is taking comments from the students about what they want.” Shelley Tweedy, board member, said her children used to beg to take their lunch to school, but the past year, they always wanted to eat at school. “They have even asked me to make some of the things she makes at school,” Tweedy said. Following a lengthy
closed session, the board approved the resignations of Candy Wagner as high school science and all coaching positions, Ben Winn as physical education/health and all coaching positions and Justin Vineyard as junior high basketball coach. The board hired Christy Beddingfield as elementary teacher, Tabitha Carie, as pre-K teacher and Melinda Wicklander as art teacher. Wicklander’s position is undetermined as to which grades she will be teaching, but Blankenship said he hoped art could be offered to all grades.

History of Alsey By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Small towns like Alsey are today a mere shadow of their former self, but nevertheless, they hold a rich history that often bears repeating. The Village of Alsey was originally called Smithfield. It was laid out by Alsey R. Smith who deeded the land on which Alsey sits on Oct. 3, 1870. The original village contained 28 full lots each 60 feet wide and 125 feet long, along with 10 lots of varying sizes. A quote from the 1873 Atlas called the land “one of the best in the county for farming and at its center is the new and promising town of Smithfield.” Smith was a man with a vision, because on the same date that he recorded the deed for Smithfield, he also deeded land to the Rockford, Rock Island and St. Louis railroad for the right-of-way. For many years, the railroad was known as the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. As more and more settlers made Smithfield their home, an application was made to the Post Office for the opening of a post office in the village. It was then discovered that there was already a Smithfield in Illinois. Still wanting the town named after its founder, the name was changed to Alsey. It was only fitting that Alsey B. Smith was appointed the first postmaster. He served from July 17, 1872 until Oct. 22, 1874. The first post office was in a small building up town. The present post office, located about a block west of the business district, was built by Harold and Esther Jefferson and was dedicated in July 1974. The first school in Alsey was an old frame schoolhouse which stood where the present school house, now a community center, sits. This frame building was moved to another location ad was used as a boarding house. In place of this schoolhouse, a one room brick building was built and a second room added later on. That school stood until the modern school building was built in 1923-24. Also at this time, Alsey also was recognized with a three-year high school. The new school housed not only the elementary grades but also the high school. In 1933-34 a gymnasium and a room on the north end of the school were added. Still short of room for all the grade levels housed in the building, it was decided to put a basement under the newly added room. Most of the digging for the basement was done by the upper grades and the high school students. The high school consolidated with Winchester in 1948-49, freeing up space in the building for the students that came from several of the rural schools that closed around this time. Eventually, the grade school would
also consolidate with Winchester, and the school was turned into a community center and is now the site for many community events. Big Springs Baptist Church was organized in 1841 with members meeting in homes for a time. Their first church was located near the Roodhouse Springs. Later, a church was erected in between Alsey and Glasgow to allow for the attendance of both towns. After Glasgow obtained their own church, a building was built in the south part of Alsey in 1889. The new church was dedicated Oct. 12, 1889 having cost a mere $1,400 to build. In the early 1950’s a basement was put under the church using volunteer labor. During this time, the name of the church was changed from Big Springs Baptist Church to the Alsey Baptist Church. Also, a new parsonage was built on a lot donated by Leon Carriger and located just south of his home. In 1906, the Alsey Brick and Tile Company was started by Matt Hoots. At this same time, H.T. McLaughlin had obtained the mining rights under 905 acres of land in Alsey and the surrounding area. In May of 1906 Hoots and McLaughlin signed an agreement to use the same railroad right of way for switching purposes. In 1911, McLaughlin bought the brick plant from Hoots and combined the two. While the mine had been used for coal, it was possible to go deeper and find clay, which is used in the making of the brick and building tile. This mine was closed down in 1956. In 1959, Harold Oswald bought the business and changed the name to Alsey Refractories. Four years later, in 1963, a tragic fire completely destroyed the plant. It was rebuilt the following year. After the death of Oswald in 1971, the company was sold to Louis Goltermann Sr. and his son, Louis Goltermann, Jr. of St. Louis. Following the elder Goltermann’s death in 1982, his son took over the helm. In 2011, the company celebrated its 105th anniversary and the third generation of Goltermann’s, Louis Goltermann, III became president of the company. A petition was drawn up on Dec. 31, 1926 and signed by 44 residents to incorporate the village. An election was held on Jan. 20, 1927 the vote petition carried by a vote of 99 to 30. An election of officials was held on Feb. 14, 1927 with H.T. McLaughlin elected the first Village President. S.N. Atkinson became the first clerk with the following as the first trustees: W.H. Priest, H.L. Northrop, R.R. Woodall, Henry Pfenninger, .H. McLaughlin and R.O. Renner. The first meeting was held in the Alsey Bank Building but they later rented the Ladies Aid building. The population of Alsey in 1927 was 360.

Looking Back July 9, 1943 Defense News Chicago, July 6- Forty-five nursery school units for the care of children whose mothers are working in war in industry have been set up with federal funds in Illinois communities outside the Chicago area, the child care advisory committee, of the Illinois War Council women’s division, reported to Governor Greene. Mrs. Frederic W. Upham and Rep. Bernice T Van der Vries, co-chairman of the division, said women’s divisions of local war councils played an important role in securing the nursery school units. The nurseries are set up in school buildings in order to be eligible for federal aid. Boys in the Service to Hear Special Baseball Broadcasts American boys in the armed services who miss their baseball almost as much as hame and the home folks, will have the opportunities during July to hear broadcasts of top notch baseball games. Contests between the Navy’s famous Great Lakes Bluejackets and two major league opponents will be described over a Blue Network hook-up of 176 stations and beamed by short wave to listening servicemen all over the world. This unprecedented baseball broadcast has been arranged by the AllisChalmers Tractor Division in recognition of frequent requests by our fighting men for more sports news from home.

â€œRemind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.â€? â€”Titus 3:1-2 NIV
ubmission is a spiritual discipline that is quite out of tune with the modern ethos. Submission requires us to be obedient and has a strong note of self-denial. Our age is more likely to celebrate self-fulfillment and self-actualization than self-denial. Submission also has some rather negative connotations due to its association with the correlative term â€œdomination.â€? For one to be submissive usually requires giving in to someone or something that is dominating. While that may be true in wrestling or martial arts, in the spiritual realm submission involves more of a â€œgiving overâ€? than a â€œgiving upâ€? or â€œgiving in.â€? In spiritual submission we are giving our lives over to a higher power and trusting that God will take care of us. But it must be admitted that there is clearly a directive to deny oneself in Jesusâ€™ call to follow him: â€œWhoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.â€? (Mark 8:34 NIV) And in the very next verse, Jesus reveals the central paradox of self-denial and submitting yourself to God: â€œFor whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.â€? (Mark 8:35 NIV) In the end, self-fulfillment only comes through self-denial. Those who seek only their own interests end up empty and miserable, while those who serve the interests of others, and ultimately, serve God, find that their lives are thereby fulfilled. â€“ Christopher Simon

Hummingbird festivals at Engle Farm The Engle Farm will be the site for two Hummingbird Festivals again this year. They are scheduled for Thursday, July 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 12, 1 to 4 p.m. Although this has not been a great year for hummingbirds, those attracted to the site’s feeders will certainly put on a show for festival visitors. Vernon Kleen, a licensed hummingbird bander and President of the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders, will begin the July festival at 4 p.m. and the Aug. festival at 1 p.m. with a short discussion about hummingbirds and explaining why they are banded. After the discussion, hummingbirds will be captured,
banded and released. The festival is a family event that can be enjoyed by persons of all ages. Although there is no charge or admission fee, donations would be appreciated. Visitors who “adopt” birds will receive an attractive, signed certificate, may be able (if enough birds are captured) to release their adopted birds, and will be notified if their bird is ever recaptured. Every year dozens of people receive letters letting them know that the bird they adopted was recaptured. If you enjoy hummingbirds, plan on visiting one or both of the festivals at the Engle farm. They should be a
very rewarding and entertaining experiences. The festivals may be reached by taking Rt. 267 south out of Jacksonville, turning east onto 2700N (in Greene County), and going 2.2 miles to the entrance of their long driveway on the left. Festival signs will be posted along the way and at the driveway. For more details, call 217/320-9006. The Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders is a not-for-profit organization that performs sound scientific studies and educational services to monitor, protect and enhance the populations of Illinois’ native birds and their unique environments.
James S. Murray Gallery features “In This Place” July 2-26 The James S. Murray Gallery at Lincoln Land Community College will feature the exhibit “In This Place” by local artist Will Redwood July 2-26. The public is invited to view the exhibit Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and attend a reception with the artist on July 18 from noon to 1 p.m. The gallery is located on the upper level of Menard Hall on the LLCC Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road. Through painting, “In This Place” captures the mood of personally meaningful places of being. “We each
inhabit our own inner world of contemplation. In this place … we each take part in shaping what will be. We each have our own places of being,” explains Redwood. “These places are the subject of these paintings.” The symbolism in his paintings conveys paradoxes experienced in life — loss and gain, joy and pain, growth and decay. “When I finish, the painting remains like a passage to that place of being,” says Redwood. “As we are each on a journey of our own, we are all together, and our experiences are often similar.” Redwood
is a painter and vector illustrator as well as the author of two independent storybooks. For six years, he also taught art for the Boys and Girls Club of Springfield. Redwood earned a degree in drawing and graphic design from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2003. Since then, he has continued to make and show art at various galleries, events and retail spaces. Learn more about LLCC’s James S. Murray Gallery and its exhibits at www.llcc. edu/james-s-murray-gallery.
