Council approves purchase of tasers for PD By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Winchester City Council unanimously approved the purchase of four tasers for the city’s police officers at the June 6 council meeting. Winchester Police Chief George Lindsey pointed out the need for the alternative to physical contact to deflect a dangerous situation. “Several events have occurred lately that have proven we are in dire need of tasers,” he said. “I brought it

up before a different council and at that time they were concerned about liability. Well, we need to be concerned about the liability of not having them. We have officers who have physically sustained an injury trying to subdue an individual.” Lindsey said he called Workman’s Comp and if the city buys two, they will buy the other two. “That right there should tell you something – if they are willing to match our purchase then I would say that is send-

ing out a pretty strong message,” Lindsey said. “These things keep us from having to have physical confrontations.” Lindsey said the statistics provided show that officer injuries went down 60 percent in departments which had tasers and suspect injuries went down 40 percent. Individual cost of the tasers is around $1,500 each but with Workman’s Comp matching the city’s purchase, the total expenditure, which would come out of the police fund, would be around $3,000.

Training would be provided free of charge by Police Chief Terry Gross of Carrollton. All of the officers, except Lindsey, are already certified. “We are the only department in the area who still doesn’t have tasers in their arsenal,” Lindsey said, “I wouldn’t be asking if I didn’t think we really needed them.” Mayor Rex McIntire said he had a meeting with representatives from Ameren recently regarding the city’s Christmas decorations. Last year the city entered into an

agreement with a company that comes in and installs Christmas decorations on the light poles and then comes back after the season is over and takes them down. “They no longer want people hooking up to existing lines for Christmas decorations,” he said. “They said that will no longer be allowed, but I did find out that they would furnish, install and maintain decorative lighting which will be a substantial savings to the city.” (See, TASERS, A2)

Civic Group updates council By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Winchester Civic Group President Chuck Frost updated the city council at the June 6 meeting as to the progress of the group, noting that participation in the group has greatly improved over the winter months which saw a decline in participation. “We want to thank the city council for their participation and their financial support of the Mapping Program earlier this year,” Frost said. “From this five week program, three committees were formed to address the needs of the community.” These committees include one for the retail and dining sector of the community, one for outdoor recreation and one for entrepreneurship and small business retention. “At last month’s meeting, the Civic Group increased its Board of Directors from 5 to 8 members to include the chairperson from each of these three committees,” Frost said. “One thing that came out of the mapping session was a successful Cash Mob at Dorsey’s Hardware. There were 35 people who met up at the Outreach Center who then went down to Dorsey’s Hardware to spend at least $20. I guess you could say that it was the first ‘legal’ mob action in Winchester’s history.” The group is currently in the process of developing a logo for the Civic Group. “We pretty much have the logo designed but we don’t have a color picked out yet,” Frost said. “The main focus will be for people to shop local. This logo will go on

By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times Winchester’s Old School Museum received a priceless donation from World War II Veteran Bob Freesen, Jr. Freesen donated the uniform he wore during World War II along with several medals and a detailed history of his two years in the Army. Freesen was born on Sept. 2, 1925 and lived on his family’s farm south of Bluffs. He attended elementary school in Campbell Hollow, a one-room schoolhouse near Oxville, and graduated from Bluff’s High School. Freesen remembers those days almost like they were yesterday. “I took two years of typing and a bunch of us guys were good enough at typing that the teacher had us type up draft papers for the draftees,” he said. “The first thing


in the

you know, I was a draftee myself. In those days, all the boys when they turned 18 were required to register for the draft.” The year was 1944 and Freesen was shipped to Sheridan for his induction, followed by Camp Stewart in Georgia for basic training in aircraft detection. “But they also found out that I was good at typing so they sent me to clerk typist school down there,” Freesen said. “My dad was very happy about that because he thought if I was a clerk typist I wouldn’t have to go fight in the war.” After that, he was sent to Fort Bliss in Texas for more aircraft detection training. “Basically, we would listen for planes and we could identify all kinds of planes in those days,” Freesen said. “When basic training was over, I was sent to Virginia


kicks off

Beach to be assigned to watch for enemy planes coming on the east coast.” He wasn’t there very long until things started heating up in Europe. “I was transferred from aircraft detection to infantry and received more basic training – this time in infantry training as a rifleman,” Freesen said. “When I finished that training it was the end of the year, so I was allowed to spend Christmas and New Year’s with my parents before I was told to report to duty in New York.” Freesen boarded the Queen Elizabeth and started his long journey to Europe. “They had to go into Glasgow, Scotland in order to have deep enough water for that big of a ship,” Freesen said. “They docked, I got off and was shuffled to a troop train that took us down (See, MUSEUM, , A2)

TNR program seeking recognition by Winchester City Council

By CARMEN ENSIGER Scott County Times. Members and organizers of the Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) program being started in Winchester called Winchester’s Wild Cats, were in attendance at the June 6 City Council meeting to ask the council to recognize the group and its efforts to control the stray and feral cat population in Winchester. Becky Lashmett, founder of Scott County Dog Rescue, addressed the council on behalf of the group. “We want to try to control the cat population, and what we want to do is to let people know what a TNR program does,” Lashmett said. “People need to take care of their own cats, and the city needs to notify people that there is a leash law and their cats need to remain on their own property.” If they are owned cats, the responsibility for those cats falls onto the owners, however there are many cats, who have no owners, either born feral or dumped. These cats become what are called community cats. “What we would like to do, if you recognize this group as feral caretakers is trap these cats, get them fixed at the Animal Protection League in Springfield, and then return them to where we got them from,” Lashmett said. “We have our own traps and the APL will not only fix them, but vaccinate them as well as tip their ears so we will know they have been altered.” The cost to get the cat altered and vaccinated at the APL will cost $25 per cat. “It is an alternative to euthanasia, which is costly and not popular at all,” Lashmett said. “We already have enough pledged to fix 20 cats.” Lashmett said the idea would be to find someone who works in Springfield, who could drop the cats off in the morning for a small

stipend, and then volunteers could make the trip up the next morning to bring them back. “Also, we would like to keep a registry of people wanting barn cats who can call city hall if they would like some after they are fixed,” Lashmett said. “You don’t want to eliminate the cats within the city, because then we would be overrun with rodents. I think it is the most viable option we have as a community for the cats.” Because they did not get on the agenda, the council could not officially recognize the group, but they will be on the agenda for next month. Once they are officially recognized by the council, they are covered by what are known as the Good Samaritan Laws. Winchester Mayor Rex McIntire donated $50 to the group, which will fix two more cats, bringing up the numbers of cats that can be fixed to 22. For anyone wishing to make a donation to help with the TNR program, members of the group will be set up each Thursday evening during the Music in the Park. They even have their own “mascot” a tiny fourweek old kitten named Grayson that was found in the backyard of a residence in Winchester abandoned by its mother, still in its sack. “This is what we are trying to prevent with this program,” Winchester Wild Cat’s organizer Troy Eddinger said. “This poor little guy was probably delivered by a mother that was probably not even six months old, and didn’t know what was happening to her. She went into labor, got scared at what was happening to her and ran off. We have no idea what happened or even if there were more, but this little guy got lucky that the owner of the home heard his cries for help.”

Katherine Howard, owner of Massage on the Square in Winchester, gives the thumbs up after a donation was made to the newly formed Trap, Neuter, Release program to spay and neuter feral and abandoned cats in Winchester called Winchester’s Wild Cats. Howard was set up during the first Music in the Park, which is going on each and every Thursday on the Winchester Square after the Farmer’s Market. Howard was collecting donations for the program. Every $25 collected will spay or neuter one cat through the Animal Protection League in Springfield.

This little kitten has been made the spokes-kitten for the Winchester Trap Neuter and Release program, which goes by the name of Winchester’s Wild Cats. Four-weekold Grayson epitomizes the need to get stray and feral cats fixed to keep them from reproducing. Grayson was found in the backyard of a Winchester residence, just minutes old, as he was still in his sack. No mother was in sight. Grayson was given to a rescuer who is currently bottle feeding him.


(continued from A1) Scotland and through England, to the English Channel where we got on a ferry and went across the channel and then over to LaHavre, France. Right away, I was ushered into a 40 and 8 boxcar, which was called that because they could haul 40 men or 8 mules.” This boxcar took Freesen into Belgium to the front lines. “When I got up there we were close enough that I could hear artillery fire,” he said. “They gave me a rifle and some cosmoline and told me I should clean the rifle with it because I would need it. It was very cold there and that night we slept in a barn.” He might have been thousands of miles from home, but Freesen was able to make the acquaintance of a man from White Hall in the same company. “His name was Kenneth Armstrong and I never knew of him before that day even though we lived only 30 miles apart,” Freesen said. “I was happy to be able to find somebody that close and we got well acquainted and became good buddies all through the rest of the war. We traveled together and talked about our lives.” After the Battle of the Bulge was over, Freesen’s company found themselves traveling on foot – unless they could hitch a ride on a British tank, that is. “They took us to the Rhine River at Dusseldorf where the Germans had blown up all of the bridges, so we had to wait for the engineers to build temporary bridges so we could cross the river,” Freesen said. “We were then able to get across the bridge and then traveled on foot. I could hear those buzz bombs going over and they said that the Germans were sent to England to bomb London.” During this trek, Freesen saw many dead American and German soldiers alike. “They were just lying in the fields and it was a dreadful sight,” Freesen. “But when we got up to Hamm, Germany, it was a railroad town, and we were going along the railroad and there were machine guns on each side of the railroad as we passed, and I could hear the bullets going by me, but fortunately none of them hit me. However, I saw my First Sergeant right ahead of me get a row of bullets across his chest and it killed him


Winchester, Illinois

instantly.” Freesen might have escaped that incident unscathed, but danger was ahead for him. “There was a railroad station, and they had stairways going from the street down into a lower level on each side of the street, so I came down the stairs on one side and this German guy came down the stairs on the other side and we met at the bottom,” Freesen said. “As it turned out he was dressed in American paratrooper clothing, and he had what we called a 'grease gun', which is an automatic weapon that the paratroopers carried. When he saw me, he opened up on me and I got a bullet in the leg and three across the face – I still have the scars.” Medics were close by and picked Freesen up, though he doesn’t remember anything until walking up in the back of an ambulance. “Apparently the medics had given me some sort of anesthetic, because I don’t remember being loaded in the back of the ambulance, but the next thing I knew I was awake and I could hear two guys in the front of the ambulance talking, and they must have been Italian or something because it was a foreign language to me,” Freesen said. “I thought I had been captured so I reached down to find my steel helmet to conk one of them on the head and take over the ambulance. When they heard me scuffling one of them turned around and said ‘What’s the matter, Mack,’ and so then I knew I was OK.” Freesen was taken to a field hospital overnight for treatment and then sent to Nancy, France to a hospital that had once been a resort hotel. “I was treated for my wounds here and was about fully recovered from that when I came down with appendicitis,” Freesen said. “Before I was completely healed up from that, the war was over. I was lucky and was sent back to my unit where they, once again, saw that I had typing experience so they made me a company clerk.” Freesen was a Private First Class at the time and the clerk typist position called for a Corporal rating, so he applied for a Sergeant rating, one level above Corporal and it was approved. “I had gotten acquainted with a guy and was seeking a discharge because I had gotten word from the Red Cross

that my dad was very sick,” Freesen said. “He put in papers for himself , also – mine was approved but his wasn’t.” Freesen found himself back in LaHavre, France where he got acquainted with a guy there who was a medic. “When we got ready to get on the boat to go home, they called for all medics and this guy grabbed my arm and said, ‘Let’s go,’” Freesen said. “I told him I was not a medic, and he said all I would have to do would be to pass out seasick pills and aspirin, so as it turns out, I served as a medic with him and we had our own quarters and had a guy clean our room every day. It was a good deal for us.” Once back on American soil, Freesen and his brother took over the family farm operation from his dad who had suffered a heart attacked while Freesen was serving in the war. Once his father had recovered from the heart attack, the elder Freesen, who was a veteran of World War I, saw a sale bill in the paper which had a Caterpillar tractor listed. They purchased the tractor and went into the construction business as Freesen Bros. “We went into the road building business and each time we would finish a job we would say that was going to be our last,” Freesen said. “But another bigger, better opportunity would come along to bid on a bigger project and we just kept on building roads.” Starting out with just a single tractor, the operation grew into a multimillion dollar construction company that builds bridges, highways and many other large projects. At one time the company had more than 1,000 employees. Freesen met his first wife, Alice Jane Albright, in Bluffs. “When I left for the army, she was still in high school and when I got out of the army I went to a high school dance with her and the rest is history,” he said. “We got married and had four sons.” After Alice Jane passed away, Freesen married his second wife, Deb, and together the two traverse the country in a motor home. Freesen retired in 2001 and contributes to many charities and community organizations in the area.

(Continued from A1) The city had been contemplating installing new lighting around the square through the USDA grant they received last year but this deal is much better and will save the city a lot of money. “Ameren would do everything but put in the conduit, which our guys could do when they pour the new sidewalks,” he said. “They will provide, install and maintain the lights. The only charge to us would be the monthly fee which we already pay. We can take the money we were going to spend on lighting and make more improvements.” Bill Sleeman with Benton and Associates reported that he sent out three requests for bids for landscaping around the square. The only offer returned was from Tipsord’s in Winchester who came in under the $12,500 bid by just a few dollars. Mayor McIntire said he was approached by someone who wants to start up the Winchester Car Wash again, along with revamping the convenience store, but it would require the installation of video gaming along with a “pour” license to allow for the consumption of alcohol on the premises. “The man who took over the station known as Fanco has hit some hard financial times, and he has an interested buyer looking at that facility,” McIntire said. The owner currently owns a convenience store in Beardstown and the mayor there gave McIntire good reviews. “She told me he come in there and bought a run down store, cleaned it up and improved it,” McIntire said. McIntire said the man guaranteed to have the store and car wash up and going in 30 days, but there was one hitch. “He said the only way it could work would be to have video gaming, which also requires a consumption license on premises,” McIntire said. “I know people are against it and I’m not a big gaming fan myself, but he said people don’t go in there

to drink, but you still have to have the license to get the gaming.” Bill Jacquot said he is all for encouraging new business owners in Winchester. “It sounds like he has a bonafide potential buyer and I think the city should do all we can to help,” he said. “On the other hand I don’t think that is a proper place for liquor on site.” Lawrence Coultas agreed, but cited the lesser of two evils. “I’m not crazy about them having a pour license either but what I like even less is having another empty building on a main corner in this town,” he said. “If it goes under, which it is going to, how many suitors are you going to have for that building? To me, that is our main corner in town. I hate to think that that corner lot would be empty and deteriorate. Do we let another building go down or swallow our pride over not wanting more liquor served?” McIntire said the gaming machines would be located behind the counter in what is now the office. “If I agreed to give him this license, it would only be under the contingency that the liquor stays in that room and it won’t come out in the lobby,” he said. “I think it is worth a shot to get the car wash and business going again.” The council narrowly approved the football field bleachers easement with Ron Bell voting No and Bill Jacquot abstaining. The issue concerned the school district already starting work on the project of installing new bleachers, which will be on the opposite side now, before the city approved the easement. The city’s easement was for water and gas lines in the area. The bleachers would be in within the 10 foot easement granted to the city. Council members felt they were being backed into a corner by the district starting construction on the project before the city approved the easement.

Hello Scott County: It turned out to be a bad day for the citywide yard sale Saturday. I am sure it was a big disappointment to the merchants as well as to the out of town people looking for bargains. Perhaps there will be a second one in the fall to make up for this one. Just a reminder there is citywide cleanup the next few days. Get your discards out so the men can take it away for you. There is a list of certain items they will not be picking up like old TVs, computers and a few other items. If you are not sure, call city hall and the ladies there will help with the list of items that will not be

taken away for you. The new coffee shop is certainly getting a new face-lift. What an improvement. I am looking forward along with everyone to see the inside as well as try the delicious items being served there as soon as it is open and ready for business. The Music on the Square Thursday night had a very good turnout. Tapestry Band played and the music was very good. It was a most enjoyable evening with the food stand there also. There are also other options for food at our regular restaurants on the square as well. It will be a summer of good music Thursday nights, and I believe the movies will

be Friday nights. So let’s enjoy all the entertainment together.

“They are trying to get their last credentials for their master’s degree so they have to serve in the community,” Frost said. “We would need to find them office space and provide housing for this person and maybe provide a cell phone – other than that, little cost to the group.

Bluffs to do own landscaping By BETH ZUMWALT Pike Pres The Village of Bluffs will do their own landscaping. The idea was finalized at the June 6 meeting of the board. The board had asked for a bid to do the work, but maintenance supervisor Duane Cawthon said the village workers could do the work. “They say we will have to go get the plants, the bushes and the rocks,” Cawthon said. “If we’re going to do that, we might as well do the work ourselves.” The board also voted to spend approximately $500 to install security cameras around the village, particularly village hall and the water plant. “I know there has been some activity at the water plants,” Cawthon said. “I’d like to know whose out there.” The board also discussed properties that need attention. “We have an ordinance,” Linda Sapp, mayor, said. “But do we need to put some fines in it?” Currently, the village sends a letter to owners of unkept properties, but the

idea of adding fines to those that do not comply is new. The board recently sent seven letters giving the property owners five days to remedy the situation. The board discussed the fines and agreed to research the matter more before setting amounts. “A property with weeds and tall grass shouldn’t be fined as much as one with derelict cars,” Chuck Pine, trustee, said. Sapp said she wanted to emphasize the measure is not to increase revenue in the village but instead to keep the village looking nice. The village park will not get an upgrade to its electrical service. The village had talked to the park board about an upgrade but the cost was approximately $10,000. The village had been willing to share the cost with the park board. “The park board doesn’t think it’s needed, since it is really only used for the picnic,” Sapp said. “The work can not be done in stages so it would cost $10,000 at all once.” The picnic is scheduled for Aug. 18

Crimestoppers Crimestoppers of Morgan & Scott County are requesting information to assist the Jacksonville Police Department in their investigation of a recent case of criminal damage. Sometime between 7 p.m. on June 5 and 7:30 a.m. on June 6: unknown person(s) used a rock to damage windows of a van belonging to a business parked in the 900 block of West Morton. The police are asking that anyone who has information concerning this incident or any other crimes within

the two-county area submit a tip online by going to www.morganscottcrimestoppers. and clicking the leave a tip button on the home page or calling Crimestoppers at 243-7300. Tips may also be submitted by texting 274637 (CRIMES). The first word of the text tip must be “payout”. More information can be found at www.morganscottcrimestoppers.





(Continued from A1) At the final mapping meeting, several individuals were brought in from the various state agencies to help with resources for both the Civic Group and the town. “One thing presented at this last meeting was the possibility of getting someone from the Peace Corps next year,” Frost said. “There is not a Peace Corp person available this year but they want us to apply for next year.” The 11 month fellowship program runs from September through August.

things get done.” Sept. 9 from 4-6 p.m. a town hall meeting and ice cream social will be held at the EMS building. “This will be an opportunity for us to bring the town together to see where we are headed and what we have accomplished so far,” Frost said. The next meeting of the Civic Group will be on Tuesday, June 19 at Siebert Hall at 7 p.m. “We have got lots of projects and ideas and we need lots of people to carry them out,” Frost said.

Emerald Ash Borer coming closer; confirmed in McDonough County The presence of emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed for McDonough County Illinois, with the initial finding coming from Macomb. EAB is a devastating exotic pest that attacks one of the most popular landscape trees in America, the ash tree. Unlike most native borers that only target dead or dying trees, EAB preys on healthy ash trees. However, the presence of EAB in McDonough County is not isolated to Macomb. A local Bushnell resident notified Extension of what he suspected was EAB. Upon inspection of the sample, the EAB adult beetle was identified in Bushnell. Reports of suspect EAB signs are also coming in from Blandinsville. How to manage EAB and its impact on your ash trees comes down to two choices: protect the tree with systemic insecticides or have your ash tree removed. Following are guidelines to assist you when weighing these two options. Guidelines for Treatment: According to retired Extension entomologist Phil Nixon, trees with up to 30-40% dieback have an excellent chance of survival with treatment, but with that much dieback, the tree may not be worth keeping aesthetically. Preserving your ash tree - If you observe more than 50% of the tree’s canopy living and intact, treating with insecticides is a viable option: • Ash trees with less than a fifteen-inch diameter at breast height (DBH) can be treated by homeowners using systemic treatments containing the active ingredient imidacloprid or dinotefuran. Imidacloprid is applied as a soil drench around the base of the tree and dinotefuran is used as a bark spray. Both treatments are annual applications. Make sure to follow all label directions. • For trees with a DBH greater than fifteen-inches, you need to hire a licensed applicator to make trunk injections of pesticides containing imidacloprid, dinotefuran, or emamectin benzoate. Imidacloprid and dinotefuran need to be applied annually, while

emamectin benzoate provides two and perhaps even three years of protection according to studies from Michigan State University. Removing your ash tree - If your ash tree has lost a majority of its canopy, contact a certified arborist to have your tree cut down. The University of Illinois Extension discourages treatment of trees that have lost more than 50% of their canopy. The state has recently lifted the internal county quarantine zone, but it is still not permitted to move ash wood outside of Illinois state lines. (Moving firewood, in general, is a bad practice, so don’t do it!) Contact your local officials for their landscape waste disposal site. Do nothing – According to Phil Nixon, EAB poses a 98% mortality rate to ash trees. If your county is confirmed with EAB and you do nothing, the odds are obviously against you. However, a few ash trees, mainly white and blue ash, will survive. A dead ash tree needs to be removed soon after death. Once deceased, ash trees degrade very quickly and run the risk of injuring bystanders and causing significant property damage as large limbs fall or the entire tree pitches over. Ensure the safety of you and others by removing an ash tree as soon as possible after its death. With the presence of emerald ash borer in McDonough County, homeowners and city officials must consider costly treatment or removal of ash trees. With all this bad news, let’s shine a light on EAB as an opportunity to plan a future tree canopy filled with a diversity of species which will add value to the communities of McDonough County. Please try to plant more than just maples! University of Illinois Extension will be hosting a public meeting to inform community members on their options and address homeowner questions on EAB June 30 at 3 PM in Macomb. To register online visit http://go.illinois. edu/EAB or call Amanda Christenson at the Knox County Extension office 309-342-5108.

As the end of the school year approaches, and families begin to plan their annual summer vacations, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is reminding Illinois residents that with the right tools and a little preparation, summertime can be safe, fun, and relaxing. Each year in the U.S., an average of 37 children die from heatstroke after being left in locked cars. Heat can be more severe on children because their bodies warm at a faster rate than adults. Parents should develop a routine that will ensure the backseat is always checked before the car is locked, such as putting a purse, cell phone or other needed item in the back seat or consider opening the car’s back door every time the car is parked. Summer’s extreme heat can also lead to heat-induced illnesses, including heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Remember to check in on family, friends, neighbors, the elderly and pets to ensure they are safe. When extreme heat strikes, limit your time outdoors, seek air conditioning and drink plenty of water. If your home does not have air conditioning, you should familiarize yourself with your community’s cooling centers.

Warmer temperatures also bring an additional threat for severe weather. The month of June is home to National Lightning Safety Awareness Week. This is a great time for families to learn how to reduce their risk while enjoying the great outdoors.  Remember, if you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to pose an immediate threat. Seek shelter as quickly as possible because no place outside is safe when a thunderstorm strikes. The best way to protect you and your family is to monitor the weather when planning or attending outdoor events. It is critical for people to have multiple ways to receive notifications and updated information about severe weather warnings.  “Whether you’re relaxing by the pool, taking in a ballgame, or traveling away from home, severe weather can strike at any time so it is important that you are aware of your surroundings,” Acting Director William Robertson said. “There are a variety of ways you can be alerted to critical, lifesaving information, no matter where you may be – including: NOAA weather radios, weather apps for your smart phone, television and radio broadcasts, the internet, and outdoor warning sirens.”

Strategic roadside mowing begins second year As concerns for declining pollinator species continue to buzz throughout the country, the Illinois Department of Transportation is reminding the public of a change in mowing operations designed to encourage the growth of pollinator species along state roadsides. The updated mowing routine, which began last May and was reinstituted this month, helps to re-establish plants that provide habitat for birds and that are food sources for bees and other insects native to Illinois, including the official state insect, the monarch butterfly. “By cutting down on mowing, we’ve created acres of ideal habitat for pollinators to flourish on Illinois roadsides,” Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn said. “With minimal impact to the motoring public, we are honoring our commitment to act as stewards of the environment and protect the long-term health of our state’s ecosystem.” The new mowing policy adjusted mowing frequency and timing, as well as limiting the use of herbicides on state rights of way. Except for certain areas, crews now mow

15 feet beyond the edge of the road. The untouched vegetation encourages the growth of milkweed, the only food source for monarch caterpillars. Designated the official state insect in 1974, the monarch butterfly population has gone down 80 percent in the past 10 years. Gov. Bruce Rauner has declared May as “Monarch Butterfly Month” in Illinois, calling on all Illinoisans to help in the restoration of the monarch butterfly population. Several other initiatives are ongoing throughout the state to support pollinator conservation, including IDOT’s partnership with Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Mason State Tree Nursery to disperse more than 7,000 seed packets containing milkweed and other local native flower species. Twentyfour monarch way stations were registered by Monarch Watch using state land in 2017, with the expectation to register more than 20 additional way stations this spring. In 2018, IDOT was awarded “Conservation Partner of the Year” by Pheasants Forever/ Quail Forever for its efforts.

Fasting “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting…. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting.” —Matthew 6:16-18 NIV


asting, which is abstaining from food, is a spiritual discipline which can profitably be done by almost everyone, though the extent to which one abstains should be carefully considered so that it matches the person’s ability to do so in a healthy way. Fasting should never damage one’s health. Fortunately, there is now considerable evidence that occasional fasting can actually improve one’s health. The purpose of fasting is not specifically to improve one’s physical health or to lose weight, but to improve one’s spiritual health. By fasting, one often humbles the heart and tempers loquacity. Fasting allows one to meditate and pray with a clear and sober mind and gives us the opportunity to test our resolve and offer our efforts to God and our fellow man. One can fast by simply giving up solid foods, drinking only water, juice and perhaps tea for

a whole day. A good way to fast for those who may be new to the practice is to eat one moderate meal around mid-day, skipping breakfast and supper, and then eating again around mid-day the following day. One can abstain from eating meat, or sweets, as a discipline that puts one on the way to practicing a fast where one completely abstains from food. One can live for a long time on very limited amounts of food, but you should never abstain from water. And remember, fasting is a spiritual discipline, and as such it should improve our souls. – Christopher Simon
