Carter trial postponed By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times The trial for Robert L. Carter, who is facing an attempted first degree murder charge in Scott County, has been postponed with a status hearing date now set for June 18 at 11 a.m. Carter was indicted on June 20, 2017 for allegedly discharging a firearm from his vehicle at Dylan Whicker with the intent to kill Whicker. Carter was originally charged with aggravated

discharge of a firearm June 20, 2016. “That was the original charge, and then I took it before a grand jury and received the bill of indictment on the attempted first degree murder charge and that included the discharge of the firearm charge as well,” Scott County States Attorney Mike Hill said. Carter was originally scheduled for a bench trial May 14, however at the pretrial conference May 3 the State made a motion to continue.

“At that last hearing, I made a motion to continue because prior to that they had asked for an expert witness who did not have his reports compiled,” Hill said. “I knew at that time, even if I received them the following day that I would not be ready for the trial the 14th because it would take time to go over them and get ready. I still have not received those reports which is why it was moved again.” Also May 3, the court granted a motion for the

modification of bail. Carter’s bail on the attempted first degree murder charge was set at $500,000 and he had been incarcerated in Pike County Jail since Aug. 1, 2016 after being arrested in that county for DUI, driving on revoked license and possession of a firearm by a felon. Bail was reduced to $25,000. “I did object to the modification of bail and argued against it but the judge went ahead and modified his bond and he is out now,” Hill said.

Walk with the Doc this Saturday By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times Dr. Eary Garcia, D.E. of the Scott County Chiropractic Center is encouraging everyone to join him Saturday morning for a walk around Plum Creek Golf Course. “They are going to let us walk at 7 a.m. before any events they have scheduled,” Garcia said. “I walk every day and encourage my patients to walk.” (See, DOC, A2)

Winchester Farmer’s Market kicks off third season By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times One of the first actions of the Winchester Civic Group was to start up a Farmer’s Market on the square each Thursday of the month, beginning on the second Thursday of March and running through the end of summer. “This is our third year and this is basically a small market for a small town, but it has gotten incrementally bigger each year that it has gone on,” Farmer’s Market Committee Member John Paul Coonrod said. “The first few weeks, the market is kind of limited because about the only crops that are up are leafy greens, but as the summer progresses and gardens start producing, we will see more and more vendors.” The only vendor this past Thursday was Mueller Family Farms of Bluffs, who offered a wide variety of leafy greens, green onions and a variety of vegetable plants for sale. “We are a family business and small enough to be able to provide a wide variety of fresh produce throughout the run of the market,” Linda Mueller said. “As the summer goes on, we will be having a lot more to offer, but right now, we are concentrating on our greens.” Mueller had a wide variety of different kinds of greens for purchase, which came as somewhat of a surprise to customer Jennifer Russell. “When you think of a small farmer’s market you never dream that there would be so much variety to choose from,” Russell said. “I figured there

maybe be one or two different greens to choose from, but there are so many here today. You normally wouldn’t see

this much variety in even the bigger markets.” The only criteria for setting up at

the Farmer’s Market is that as a vendor, you must grow or substantially (See, MARKET, , A2)

Scott County Quilters donate quilt for Memorial Fund raffle By CARMEN ENSINGER Scott County Times The ladies of the Scott County Quilters group will be donating a patriotic quilt to be raffled off during the Community Picnic in July, with proceeds from the raffle going towards the Veterans Memorial Fund for the new memorial being planned for Monument Park. “We asked everyone in our group to make quilt blocks with a patriotic theme,” Scott County Quilters member Kay Brown said. “We told them they could do whatever they wanted, and make whatever kind of block they wanted but to use just red, white and blue. That is how we came up with what we are raffling off.” Brown said they no longer hand quilt the quilts they

make, but rather send them off to be hand quilted. The Scott County Quilters got their start around 20 years ago through the Scott County Extension office. Brown was one of the original founding members and recalled how the group got started. “Myrna Wisdom is the one who really got it started back then,” Brown said. “Some of us younger ones (at the time) wanted to learn how to quilt and she was a very good quilter. The group was organized through the Extension, which is no longer, and there are several of us who have just stayed on throughout the years.” Through the Extension Newsletter, Brown said Wisdom learned about something called the Linus Project. The goal of the Linus Project is to provide love, a sense of

security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans created by volunteers. “The Linus Project is a national project that sends blankets all over the world,” Brown said. “But Myrna thought some of them should go to Passavant Hospital in Jacksonville as well. But as they were not part of the Linus Project, we had to put our own name on the blankets, so since then we have been doing blankets for both places.” There are only about a dozen members left in the group – a testament to the times. “Quilting is becoming another one of those ‘lost arts’ like many other hobbies that (See, QUILT, A2)

This is the quilt that will be raffled off during the Winchester Community Picnic in July. It was made by the members of the Scott County Quilters, and proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Veteran’s Memorial Fund to erect a new Veteran’s Memorial Monument in Monument Park.

Bluffs accepts bid for school renovation By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times After months of fact finding and discussion, Bluffs Schools are scheduled to received some much needed renovations. The school board accepted a bid of $2,150,000 last Wednesday night at their regular monthly meeting. “That gets the job done,” Kevin Blankenship, superintendent of the district, said. “That is the doors, floors, electrical, heating/AC, every-

thing. It’s a gut job.” Low bidder on the project was R.D. Lawrence of Springfield. Work is scheduled to start the Monday after Memorial Day and be completed by Aug. 13. The board had created a list of necessary projects and set a goal of keeping the cost under $2 million. “There is a contingency fund built into the bid,” Blankenship said. “We hope we don’t have to use that and the actual number will be

closer to $2 million.” Blankenship said teachers are excited about the project and some have already starting boxing up their rooms. Furniture and equipment will be stored in the multi-purpose room and the ag shop for the summer, according to Blankenship. Due to the thorough research involved in keeping the cost manageable for the district, the bids were late being let. “Bids might have been dif-

ferent if we had advertised them earlier,” Blankenship said. “But a toilet costs what a toilet costs. I don’t believe that it made much of a difference.” Blankenship predicted a special meeting in the future for the board to go over the paperwork and compete the bond issuing documents. No date has been set. The board will meet at 6:45 p.m. June 13, the date of the next regular meeting, to (See, BID, , A2)

Outdoor Truths: Gary Miller



he older I get, the more I enjoy the small rivers around my area. I used to be the lake type. I used to look forward to the sport, and even the competition of fishing. That competition was not necessarily with other boats, but it was as much with me. It seemed each time I went fishing the score was zero to zero and each fish I caught or didn’t catch moved the score in one direction or another. I loved it, but it seems now that I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have. Don’t get me wrong, my most memorable trips are still the ones where I caught the most fish; except perhaps for those where thunder and lightening were involved. But for the most part the lake has provided some great memories. And I hope it has more to give. The river however, is another species. It calls for one to be good at multitasking. If you spend too much time thinking about catching a fish, you will soon be going through some rough water sideways, and then upside down. Old Man River, over the years, has collected from me, many anchors, a slew of baits, and a few expensive rods and reels. And rarely does he give any back. I can remember a few years ago, at nine o’clock in the morning, having to dive in to retrieve another anchor that had come untied (it seems I lose about 3 of these each year). The river does however provide plenty of sights that do serve to feed the imagina-

tion. It’s commonplace to see deer wading out into the more shallow areas and turkey flying from one side to the other, and the ducks gathered into small pools. The river is a kaleidoscope of nature; each turn provides a different view; each view a different perspective, and each perspective a different you. There’s no doubt the older we get the more introspective we become. I somehow think men are particularly this way; at times to a fault. Thinking is good, but it shouldn’t replace conversation – only add to it. And for me, the river gives me the perfect environment for both. Maybe you are neither the lake nor the river type. Perhaps your activities take you in other directions. And perhaps they are so involved that you rarely have time to think about anything, much less something of substance. These are fine, but don’t let them keep you from dealing with the weightier matters of life. Just because we ignore them, doesn’t mean they will go away. ■ Gary has three books that are compilations of the articles he has written for nearly 15 years. He also speaks at game dinners and men’s groups for churches and associations. . He can be reached at


continued from A1 make the product that you are selling, which means handcrafted items are also allowed, such as crocheted items or perhaps woodworking items – anything done by hand. “An attempt was made this year to reach out to all of the vendors from years past to ask them to participate again this year,” Coonrod said. “The terms are the same and the cost is very nominal – just a few bucks to show up and have a spot anywhere on the square.” Beginning the second Thursday in June, the Farmer’s Market will lead into the Music in the Park series, which has a different style of music almost each and every week throughout the summer. “We have a very diverse musical lineup this year,” Coonrod said. “We have bands that perform classic rock, folk, Americana, country, bluegrass, folk, jazz plus, singer/songwriter and acoustic rock and roll – pretty much the

come out and feed themselves and their kids, and just make it easier for people to get out and up to the town square to enjoy each other’s company and some good music for free.” Here is the lineup for this summer’s Music in the Park series: June 7: Tapestry – Classic Rock.

continued from A1 Garcia said he got the idea from Tammy Cannon of the Scott County Health Department. Garcia said the event is a national event and he believes it started with a cardiologist in Ohio. “I thought it was good idea,” he said.

Garcia said he is trying to promote the idea with flyers in and around his office. “I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback,” he said. It’s good physical activity. He says the walk will be about two miles and hopes many people participate.


Continued from A1 our mother’s and grandmothers did to pass away the time,” Brown said. “Most of the quilting is done by machine these days, though there are a few that still do it by hand.” The group meets once a month on the second Monday. “We usually do not quilt at these meetings but rather discuss ideas for upcoming projects, and maybe share patterns we have found,” Brown said. “Our group has dwindled over the years, but we are more than welcome to anyone who would like to come visit with us at our meeting and perhaps become a member.”

The group runs strictly on donations now. “Back when the Extension dissolved in Scott County, we did have quite a bit of money that they graciously gave to us that helped us along for quite awhile,” Brown said. “Now, most of our money comes from donations. We also ask people to donate the materials for the baby blankets that we do for Passavant and the Linus Project. Most of us provide our own materials because we love what we do. It is a honor to be able to raffle off this quilt and hopefully raise some good funds for the new Veteran’s Memorial being planned.”


Continued from A1 review the coming year’s budget. The board also approved a hazardous crossing for the district. Any students living south of the railroad tracks can now be transported to school. Bluffs schools participate in the Community Eligibility Program, which allows every student in the district,regardless of income,to receive a free lunch. “But to do that we have to have lunch prices set,”Blankenship said. “A

student lunch for 7-12 is now $2.05 and for students K-6, $1.80. That is an increase of a dime, but won’t affect any student.” The board also accepted the resignations of first grade teacher, Andrea Gumbel, and high school business teacher Steven Gordeau. Blankenship was cautiously optimistic about replacing the teachers due to the current teacher shortage. “Teachers are hard to find,” he said. “We are advertising the positions.”

BY IRENE TREECE 217-371-1386

Hello Scott County: Had a wonderful Mothers Day. Met some wonderful people in the Jerseyville, Illinois area. I was at the Wal-Mart in Jerseyville and almost run down by a kind gentleman on a motorized cart. His name is Bushy Bob Bishop. He is president of his own club. Membership is free and he hopes to go nationwide before he is done. His motto and the motto of his club are “ Don’t Be A Victim, Zip it & Click It” Which makes a lot of sense.  He said he is probably not the first person to think of this action but he wants to get it out to the public. He especially wants to warn the older people, the weaker people, and the younger people.  Bob says anytime you are shopping with a cart and have your purse sitting in the seat where a child would ordinarily be sitting, to make sure your purse is zipped shut and run the strap, used to buckle a child in the seat, through the straps of your purse and snap the buckle.  If someone should try to grab your purse and run the cart will try to go with the purse and that should give

you time to grab the cart and yell for help discouraging the would be thief. The only thing Bushy Bob Bishop asks is for each member to pass this message on to one other person this will be your lifetime dues paid in full to be a member in Bob’s Club. I understand the Scan and Go at Wal-Mart will be gone around the twentysecond of this month.  It was a test run and now it has proven to be a way for thieves to walk out without scanning and paying for all of their merchandise. Always someone out there to ruin the convenience of others by being the jerks they really are. I personally like the idea of scanning each item as it was placed in a bag in my cart. I did not have to handle the merchandise as many times. With the selfscanners the items were scanned placed in bags in the cart as you shop. Then scan the machine up front, pay for merchandise, get receipt and go top your car.  Remove bags from cart, place in car, get home take bags from car into house and put items away.  When you go through regular check out lane, place

items in cart, remove items and place on checkout belt, take bags from c h e c k e r place in cart, go to car take bags from cart place in car drive home.  Take bags from cart into house and remove items placing them where they belong. Lots of extra work as I see it. I hope there is a method to stop thieves and bring the self-scanning back to the store. They will do the research on this program and should be able to reach solutions to this problem in the very near future with all the modern technology we have today. Last Weeks Trivia: - the ten-gallon hat falls eighty six percent short of its promise. The tengallon hat holds only three quarts.  The name “gallon” refers to a certain kind of braided hatband and not to the amount of what the hat will hold. Mexican vaqueros wore these hats. The ‘Ten gallon hat” would indicate the number of these braided bands on a hat. When Texas cowboys misunderstood the word “gallon” for “gallon’ the popular although incorrect. Next Weeks Trivia: What is the best way to treat snakebite?

IDPH recommends vaccinating children After two individuals with measles traveled through Chicago O’Hare airport earlier this year, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D., is asking parents to talk with a health care provider to make sure their children are fully immunized. “Children can suffer serious illness when exposed to diseases like measles, mumps, and pertussis,� Director Shah said. “Although vaccines are among the most successful, safest and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death, some people still choose not to be vaccinated. That is why it is important that you protect your child against serious illness by having them vaccinated before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases.� Through on-time immunization, parents can protect infants and children from 14 vaccine-preventable diseases before age two.  Because of the success of vaccines, parents may not have heard of or seen the serious health effects caused by vaccine-

preventable diseases, like polio. While childhood immunization rates remain high, children in the U.S. can and sometimes do get diseases that some parents might consider diseases of the past. In the 1950s, nearly every child developed measles, and unfortunately, some even died from this serious disease. Today, many practicing physicians have never seen a case of measles due to the effectiveness of the vaccine.  However, even when diseases are rare in the U.S., they can still be commonly transmitted in many parts of the world and brought into the country by unvaccinated individuals, putting other unvaccinated people at risk. The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost for children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. The VCF program helps children get their vaccines according to the recommended immunization schedule. More information about the VFC program and immunizations can be found on the IDPH website.

An additional $30 ticket will provide fairgoers access to an exclusive pre-show party that includes a food provided by the Illinois Pork Producers Association, entertainment, giveaways and early entry into the concert. New this year, the fair will provide each stage side ticket holder with a parking pass for that night concert if the tickets are purchased prior to July 31. The Stage Side Party is only available to those who have purchased a concert ticket to attend that night concert BOTH concert & party ticket will be required to enter the party tent. These tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster once tickets go on-sale. Mark your calendars for the 2018 Illinois State Fair, August 9 through 19, in Springfield.

Rep. Davidsmeyer passes boot camp legislation State Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville) has passed legislation that encourages petty-criminals who haven’t committed a heinous crime to be placed into a boot camp, rather than an Illinois prison.  “Our work camps and boot camps in the State of Illinois are currently being underused,� Davidsmeyer said. “My bill will allow the Department of Corrections to use these facilities as a resource for the reform of many prisoners who are on their way to being released.� To qualify for boot camp or work camp sentencing, an offender must be between 17 and 35 years old, have not previously served a sentence in an adult correction facility and be physically fit. House

Bill 4364 received strong bipartisan support and now moves to the state Senate. “Boot camps and work camps are effective because they prevent idleness while being incarcerated.  They improve a person’s attitude by creating a safe and structured environment for those who may not have come from a safe home. These facilities also improve a prisoner’s skills, which helps them reintegrate back into society,� Davidsmeyer said. “Using boot camps and work camps prevents recidivism, reduces the cost of incarceration and reduces Illinois’ prison population.  My legislation saves taxpayer’s money while helping offenders return to society.�

“Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ � —2 Corinthians 12:7-9 NIV

ow often do you find yourself praying to be relieved of your pains and infirmities? Perhaps it would be better to pray to have the strength, courage and patience to bear your infirmities. This prayer becomes increasingly important as we age, since our bodies eventually wear out. As the saying goes, “Old age is not for sissies,� at least in part because the elderly almost invariably have their share of chronic aches and pains. As the writer Philip Roth remarked, “Old age isn’t a battle, old age is a massacre.� But it is also worth remembering that certain infirmities actually contribute to our character, making us better people by reining in certain untoward desires or tendencies. So how do we develop the necessary strength of spirit to bear our pains and infirmities? One way is to get in the habit of doing small things every day which are difficult, painful, or just plain boring. This practice will help you to develop fortitude and strength of spirit for the more difficult and painful episodes, which are bound to come. And remember that in your suffering, you are in some ways sharing in the suffering of our Lord, who suffered greatly in his time here on earth. – Christopher Simon

Young creativity

The upcoming 150th anniversary is an opportune time to think about the meaning of Memorial Day and its historic relationship to the American Civil War. May 5, 1868 Commander in Chief John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), an organization made up of Union Civil War veterans, issued what was called General Order #11, which designated May 30 for “strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion.� Originally known as Decoration Day, it was as a result of the Civil War’s tremendous death toll, that it came into being and in 1971, Memorial Day became an official, legal holiday; a time for the nation to pay its respects not only to the Civil War fallen, but more broadly to all veterans, family members, and friends that have passed. Beyond a visit to the cemetery, family get-togethers, cookouts, parades, ceremonies and celebrations have become popular pastimes over Memorial Day weekend and should be on full display again this year. The desire to celebrate the

sesquicentennial of Memorial Day in Jacksonville and Morgan County gave impetus to proffering a new and totally unique production called “Tales of Our Fathers: Remembering Our Morgan County Civil War Soldiers.� A series of programs and presentations are planned over the long holiday weekend in outdoor and indoor venues alike. Special tributes include not only graveside presentations, but also the plight of African American soldiers and the hardships endured by family members of Civil War soldiers. Many families may not know if they have a Civil War veteran in their family tree or if they do, they don’t know much about him or her. Three of the “Tales� speakers had relatives in the war and after obtaining their records from the National Archives, they were surprised at what they learned, and developed a much greater appreciation for what their great and great-great grandfathers endured. The emergence of Morgan County genealogy and Civil War history can produce much more of a personal interest, and the revelations can be

very exciting for families. Sunday, May 27 events will be convened at indoor sites and on Memorial Day, May 28, they will be held in area cemeteries except for General Ulysses S. Grant’s reception, which will take place at the Governor Duncan Mansion Monday evening. All of the events are free except for the special “Tales of Our Fathers� buffet being offered Sunday evening from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Jacksonville VFW. The cost per person is $10 and reservations are required. All those interested in celebrating patriotism and the 150th Memorial Day or simply wish to have a good time while enjoying a delicious meal are urged to call (217) 243-6814 by no later than Wednesday, May 23 to make a reservation. For a schedule of programs, presentations, and events over Memorial Day weekend please visit the community calendar at the Jacksonville Convention & Visitors Bureau website at For more information please call or text Chuck at (904) 3140169.

Avoiding tick and Our readers today are your customers tomorrow mosquito born illness Advertise with Scott County Times As the weather warms up, products containing 0.5 perwe’re starting to see ticks cent permethrin. 217-742-3313 and mosquitoes.  The Illinois n Apply insect repellent Department of Public Health (IDPH) is reminding people about simple precautions they can take to avoid bites.  “Ticks can carry diseases like Lyme disease, spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis, while mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus,” Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. said. “These diseases can cause anywhere from mild to severe illness, and even death in some cases. To protect yourself from both, use insect repellent that contains DEET and follow some simple precautions.”  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, disease cases from mosquito, tick, and flea bites have tripled in the U.S. during the 13 years from 2004 through 2016.  Reported cases from mosquito and tick bites in Illinois have increased by more than half (58 percent) from 2005 to 2016. Many tick-borne diseases have similar symptoms. The most common symptoms can include fever, chills, aches and pains, and rash. Within two weeks following a tick bite, if you experience a rash that looks like a bull’s-eye or a rash anywhere on your body, or an unexplained illness accompanied by fever, contact your doctor.  Early recognition and treatment of the infection decreases the risk of serious complications. Tell your health care provider the geographic area in which you were bitten or traveled to help identify the disease based on ticks in that region. A fairly new virus called Bourbon virus has been associated with tick bites and has been found in a limited number of cases in the Midwest and southern U.S. People diagnosed with Bourbon virus disease have symptoms including fever, fatigue, rash, headache, other body aches, nausea, and vomiting. They also had low blood counts for cells that fight infection and help prevent bleeding. Some people who were infected later died. Ticks are commonly found on the tips of grasses and shrubs. Ticks crawl, they cannot fly or jump. The tick will wait in the grass or shrub for a person or animal to walk by and then quickly climb aboard. Some ticks will attach quickly and others will wander, looking for places like the ear, or other areas where the skin is thinner. Simple tips to avoid ticks bites include: n Wear light-colored, protective clothing—longsleeved shirts, pants, boots or sturdy shoes, and a head covering. Treat clothing with

that contains 20 percent or more DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that lasts several hours. n Walk in the center of trails so grass, shrubs, and weeds do not brush against you. n Check yourself, children, other family members, and pets for ticks every two to three hours. n Remove any tick promptly by grasping it with tweezers, as close to the skin as possible and gently, but firmly, pulling it straight out.  Wash your hands and the tick bite site with soap and water. The most common mosquito-borne illness in Illinois is West Nile virus.  West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected Culex pipiens, or “house” mosquito. Mild cases of West Nile virus infections may cause a slight fever or headache. More severe infections are marked by a rapid onset of a high fever with head and body aches, disorientation, tremors, convulsions and, in the most severe cases, paralysis or death.  Symptoms usually occur from three to 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. People older than 50 are at higher risk for severe illness from West Nile Virus. There are some simple precautions you can take to Fight the Bite.  Precautions include practicing the three “R’s” – reduce, repel and report. n Reduce- make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens.  Repair or replace screens that have tears or other openings.  Try to keep doors and windows shut.

hen it comes to supplying fiesta foods that fit almost anyone’s taste, tacos are a go-to party favorite. That is because it can be fun for party-goers to customize their own tacos while making food prep easier and less hands-on for hosts who don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, trying to list all the possible tacotopping options can be an overwhelming task for many hosts. Along with your choice of taco filling, consider these toppings when building the perfect taco bar at your next fiesta:

„ „

Shredded cheese Sour cream

„ „ „ „ „ „ „ „ „ „ „ „

Beans (black, pinto or refried) Salsa Shredded lettuce Rice Rio Luna Organic Peppers Chopped tomatoes Chopped onions Diced avocado or guacamole Sliced black olives Corn Cilantro Lime wedges

1/4 teaspoon salt powdered sugar (optional) Heat oven to 350 F. In medium bowl, whisk oil, sugar, eggs, jalapenos and vanilla until blended.
