Roberts told the board. Roberts noted the district and booster groups such as the PAT have enjoyed a “partnership” in which the district does not exert control over the groups’ activities but recommended the board allow the group to conduct the raffle, as tickets have already been sold, but ask them not to raffle a gun next year. “I say we stay out of it,” board president Steve Moore said. “It’s their call.” “I’m behind them 100 percent, but it’s in a little poor taste with the things that have happened with guns in schools,” board secretary Norine Jefferson said. “The cause is wonderful, but I don’t agree with it. With a school function, I don’t like to see guns, bows and arrows, or any weapons.”

PAT gun raffle triggers concern By JUSTIN A. COBB Scott County Times The decision of the Winchester Parents And Teachers (PAT) organization to have a gun raffle at its upcoming Adult Night Out next Saturday has led to some concern in the community, Winchester School Board members learned when they met Tuesday evening. The board met 5 p.m., an hour and a half earlier than usual, due to West Central boys basketball senior night taking place in Bluffs the same evening. “It’s all being done legally, but there is a local resident who feels it is wrong,” district superintendent Dave

By JUSTIN A. COBB Scott County Times Scott County Board of Commissioners will learn the results of the annual audit at their next meeting, which takes place Tuesday, Feb. 21, due to Monday being an official holiday. “The auditors will be there next Tuesday, and we’ll probably take action to accept the audit,” board of commissioners chair Robert Schafer said by phone Feb. 15, the morning following this week’s meeting, Monday, Feb. 12, having also been an official holiday. Schafer said he did not anticipate there would be any major problems identified in the audit. Tuesday’s meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes, mainly entailed an update from County Engineer Matt Coultas regarding cur-

rent activities of the highway department, with the only action item being the appointment of a new member to the Scott County Emergency Telephone Systems Board (ETSB), according to Schafer. Bob Smith was appointed to a term starting immediately and continuing though Dec. 31, 2018, to represent Winchester Police Department, filling the vacancy left by Winchester Police Chief George Lindsey’s resignation from the ETSB, according to Schafer. Lindsey resigned from the ETSB in January, and Winchester City Council approved Smith’s appointment to replace him on the board when it met Feb. 1. In other business, Scott County Nursing Center had 35 residents as of Tuesday, according to Schafer.

Bluffs board debates senior trip policies By JUSTIN A. COBB Scott County Times Bluffs School Board members and administrators debated Feb. 8 over the extent to which a boardlevel policy should govern fundraising as a prerequisite to attendance on a graduating class’s senior trip. Mainly at issue was whether a uniform policy should replace the status quo in which each class and its sponsors decide for themselves what contributions each member must make toward fundraising efforts to be allowed to go on the trip and whether those who have not met those goals should be allowed to buy in. “This has come up at least six or seven times,” board secretary Rodger Barnett said, arguing in favor of an across-the-board policy, as well as a policy concerning the disposition of class records in the event of a sponsor change. Board member Terry Kunkel, who had previously served as a class sponsor as a teacher for the district before her retirement, agreed there should be a policy, particularly addressing buy-in, which she said was “a big problem” since it allows a student who has not contributed to fundraising to attend the trip simply because his or her parents can afford it. Board vice president DeWayne Hart felt a boardlevel policy was unnecessary, noting each class setting its own policy allows them the flexibility to address issues such as illness, a job, or participation in extracurricular activities that makes it difficult to participate in the required number of fundraising events. The board took no action

on the matter. In other business, the board: n Learned the company that installed the new bleachers as part of the gymnasium renovation had returned to redo some of the work that had not been done as designed, including placement of bolts every 16 inches and placement of brackets for the top row of seating. The company was also going to mount the bleachers to the wall since the new gymnasium floor is a floating floor, designed to expand and contract without buckling, according to Blankenship. n Set the calendar for the 2017-2018 school year. Teachers will begin Wednesday, Aug. 16, with teachers’ institute, with students’ first day of attendance Friday, Aug. 18. Winter break will start Dec. 20 and end Jan. 3, and school will end the Friday before Memorial Day. Seven emergency days are built into the calendar. n Learned the district had not received any mandated categorical payments from the state for the current fiscal year. n Approved the meeting agenda, minutes of previous meetings, financial reports, payroll, and payment of bills. Minutes included those from the Truth in Taxation hearing in December that were not included in last month’s consent agenda. Fifty-nine minutes into the meeting, board members voted to go into closed session to discuss specific employee matters, collective bargaining, and litigation. After 10 minutes in closed session, the board returned to open session and (See, bluffs A2)

“It’s an adult night. People are going to be bringing alcohol so it’s kind of a gray area. I have no problem with the gun.”

Jeff Hurrelbrink Member, Winchester School Board “It’s an adult night. People are going to be bringing alcohol so it’s kind of a gray area,” board member Jeff Hurrelbrink said. “I have no problem with the gun.” “But maybe not with the school,” board vice president Wayne Brown said. “If it was at the Penny Carnival, I’d

be 100-percent with you, but this is at an adult night,” Moore said. Board member Joe Little said he would have no problem with it if they were raffling a shotgun but was on the fence since the gun being raffled is an “assault rifle.” The rifle being raffled is an AR-15(See, raffle, A2)

Detective Chris Coyne of the city of Troy Police Department, located in Madison County near St. Louis, describes heartache he has seen opiate addiction and overdose cause throughout his nearly 20 years as a D.A.R.E. officer during a presentation he and Collinsville High School assistant principal Kari Karidis gave Friday afternoon at the Winchester High School auditorium.

‘Fightin’ the struggle’ against opiate addiction By JUSTIN A. COBB Scott County Times “It won’t happen to me” are five words Detective Chris Coyne of the city of Troy Police Department recommended everyone eliminate from their vocabulary Friday afternoon during a presentation at Winchester High School. “Fightin’ the Struggle” is a program Coyne and Collinsville High School assistant principal Kari Karidis developed after seeing how the epidemic of opiate addiction and overdose have affected their communities and their own lives. A D.A.R.E. officer for nearly 20 years, Coyne has seen the number of overdose deaths increase substantially with the increase in opiate abuse seen since 2009, with the number of heroin overdoses in Madison County alone spiking from 24 and 26 in 2013 and 2014 to 44 in 2015, he said. “There were seven fatal overdoses in a week and a half in late 2015 in Madison County,” Coyne said.

Coyne presented a list of individuals he knew personally who had died by heroin overdose since 2009, listing in red type the ones to whom he had taught D.A.R.E., and showed shocking photos illustrating how opiate addiction and overdose ravage individuals, families, and communities. One photo was of the dead body of a young man whose “friends” had dumped him off into a cemetery after overdosing on heroin, leaving his body in view of a nearby elementary school. Another set of photos was of a young woman named “Nora,” who Coyne had taught in D.A.R.E. and whom he worried he may soon have to add her name in red to the list of those he had already lost, her pocked skin and abscessed arms a stark contrast to a strikingly beautiful “before” photo taken before she started using heroin. Coyne introduced a second young woman, “Melissa,” who in an audio recording described the horrors of heroin withdrawal—the vomiting, itching, inability to sleep or sit still. (See, addiction A2)

Letters to the editor Progress continues to save school in Alsey Dear fellow Alsey Red Devils, Manchester Blackhawk’s and Supporters of our School: We cannot begin to say how much we regret the loss of our dear principal, Bernard Raabe! He touched all of our lives in one capacity or another and we will never forget his love and kindness! We have been busy with fundraisers again this year; approximately $8,848.76 was raised due to the efforts of many! It started with the dinner on Memorial Day ($351), softball tournaments in June and September ($1236), Men’s Basketball Tournament in March ($3115), Alsey Homecoming Basket Raffle ($482), spook house and penny carnival ($2366), quilt raffle ($752), gun raffle (Dalene Fearneyhough was the winner and gave it back) ($1503) and finishing up with the Christmas Bazaar ($425)! Thank you to all that have lent a hand and given to our cause! We are currently planning this year’s events and they are starting with the Men’s Basketball Tournament on March 3, 4 and 5. Dana Garrett is once again heading this up and is hoping to register eight teams for the event. If you have a team, please contact Dana at 217-370-2139. Entry fee will be $175 - $200 depending on other costs. Deadline to register is Feb. 18. Players must be at least 18 years of age. We are

also in need of volunteers: scorekeepers, food stand workers, cookie makers, clock runners, half-court shot coordinator and referees! There will also be the Memorial Dinner in May, softball in June and September, basket raffle in August at the Homecoming and a Penny Carnival/Fall Festival in the fall. With all your generous donations, we have been able to paint the trim on the school building, rearrange the kitchen and replaced some appliances, bathroom repairs, tile drains out, insulation in classrooms, just to name a few! Things needing repairs are a different furnace, ceiling in gym and classroom, tuckpointing, gym floor, etc., etc., if you know what we mean! A special thanks to our repair recommendation crew! We are also taking shirt orders; the more shirts we order the better the cost. We are offering T-shirts $14, long sleeve T-shirts $17, hoodies and zip hoodies $25; bigger sizes have an additional cost. The more orders made, the cheaper the cost to the board. To order call Peggy Clemons, 7423822, or Cindy Ryan, 742-3253. We had a very successful “collecting change campaign” in honor of our two awesome principals, Mr. Lee Barrow and

Mr. Bernard Raabe! To date, we have collected $2307.14! There were 29 students and one teacher of the schools that turned in their change from various years and the Class of 1969 gained bragging rights for our first campaign! It might have something to do with the fact that Jack owns a bar?! We have asked Kevin Moore to come up with a plan for our landscaping! We have also been in contact with Kevin Brown about filling in the well. As mentioned last year, we hope to finish with a plaque honoring our principals! The collecting change campaign will continue this year! If you have a Gatorade bottle, please start throwing your change in it and turn it in to the Farmer’s bank in Winchester or at any of our events, all we need to know is your name, the school where you graduated 8th grade and when. This is what was collected with 30 people; imagine if we all joined in! If you live away, please collect your change and send a check to Alsey School Renovation Fund, PO Box 108, Alsey, IL 62610; don’t forget to include the year you graduated! The winning class will be announced at the Chili Supper in October. KATHY SIMMONS Committee Chairperson Save the Alsey School

School leadership program elicits excitement By JUSTIN A. COBB Pike Press A school leadership program sponsored by the Tracy Family Foundation in Mount Sterling has local educators very excited. The West Central Illinois School Leadership Initiative is an 18-month training program intended to make school leaders more effective, the first cohort of which recently graduated, according to a Saturday evening press release. Western School District curriculum director Jessica Funk, who will become the district’s superintendent in July, was one of five educators from Pike County who graduated in the first cohort. “We went for two days a month roughly back to back to Mount Sterling,” Funk said by phone Monday afternoon. “First we talked about education overall, as in a global perspective, and then it got more focused, with units on literacy, math, and science.” Other educators from Pike County who participated in the first cohort were Western Elementary and High School prin-

cipal Connie Thomas, Pikeland School District superintendent Paula Hawley, and Pittsfield High School and South Elementary School principals Angie Greger and Angie Ruebush, according to the press release. The program, which provides training developed by the National Institute for School Leadership, according to Winchester High School guidance counselor Celeste Lashmett, speaking by phone Tuesday morning, who with Winchester High School and Winchester Grade School principals Denny Vortman and Andy Stumpf will participate in the cohort starting in June. “The Tracy Family Foundation has put a lot of time into researching success in schools, and all the research had come back and said good leadership is integral in successful schools,” Lashmett said. “They took a lot of time to figure out the best program. NISL is a nationwide program, not just people throwing stuff together.” The program brings experts from all over the country to present to school leaders enrolled in the program, according to

Addiction (Continued from A1) Melissa had been able to stay clean for nearly a year before relapsing into heroin addiction, according to Coyne, who said he fears she, too, may eventually have to be added to his list of overdose deaths. Karidis has been an educator for approximately 20 years and seen the impact opiate abuse, addiction, and overdose have had on her school and in her community, she said. One overdose death that took place Nov. 4, 2013, however, is indelibly etched into her heart, as this was when her son Chas, then age 23, died of a heroin overdose, she said. “My 26-year-old will forever be 23,” Karidis said. Chas had grown up a popular, charismatic, and talented boy who loved playing the guitar, walking the family dog, and spending time with friends, but he had a “secret” group of friends who had turned him on to heroin, Karidis said. Before, he hated getting shots and would not even take an Advil for a headache, “and now he’s shooting up heroin!” Karidis said. No one who has become addicted to heroin began using with the intention of becoming an addict, but heroin is highly addictive and more so for a person who has a family history of addiction, according to Karidis. Having a single family member with an addiction problem increases a person’s likelihood of becoming an addict by 70 to 80 percent, but if he or she has a second

Lashmett. “I’m really exited. Plus, there’s an opportunity to earn graduate credit hours,” Lashmett, who is currently pursuing a master’s degree in educational leadership, said. Each session of the program covers a different aspect of school leadership, such as mentoring and best pedagogical practices in mathematics and science, according to Funk. “For science, our speaker there was actually someone who had been accepted into NASA,” Funk said. “He walked us through what an inquiry less would be like. Instead of just reading from a textbook it’s ‘let’s find the information together’ so really modeling some of the lessons to us that we can go back and put into practice in our classrooms.” Funk said she and Thomas have already been able to implement lessons learned from the program to increase the rigor of the curriculum throughout the district. Asked whether she would recommend it to others, “Absolutely, without a doubt!” she said. “It’s intense and demanding but worth every second of it.”

Kari Karidis, assistant principal at Collinsville High School, describes how opiate addiction has touched her life. Not only has she dealt with it among students at her school, she lost a son to a heroin overdose three years ago. She and Troy police Detective Chris Coyne hope they will be able to stem the tide of opiate addiction and overdose.

(Continued from A1) style rifle, Winchester Grade School (WGS) secretary Darin Buhlig, who is familiar with firearms through prior military service, said by phone the following morning, though he was not certain of the exact model. WGS principal Andy Stumpf, noting he assented to the raffle when the PAT proposed it to him, said the way the raffle was being conducted was completely legal, with participants required to be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card. Adult Night Out attendees must be 21 or older. “They have my full support,” Stumpf said. “They’ve raised more than $100,000 (for the school) in recent memory. If it’s a problem, you can put it on my shoulders.” “I do think the intent is good,” Brown said. “Guns are popular, and it’s a good way to raise money.” Booster groups at several neighboring school districts, including Jacksonville, Greenfield, and Carrollton, have had gun raffles to raise money for their schools, and the issue was met with no resistance when the PAT discussed it in a well-attended meeting in September, Angie Brown, PAT president and a teacher at WGS, said. “We’re thinking we’re living in a hunting community. It’s a good way to raise money. We’re not trying to be insensitive,” Angie Brown said. “We will not do it again. We can see both sides of it.”

Raffle family member who is an addict, “you may as well put your name on the dotted line,” Karidis said. Abstinence from drugs is important in the teen and young adult years not just because of the risk of addiction but also because their brains, particularly the frontal lobe, important for impulse control and decision making, are still developing, according to Karidis. Coyne and Karidis advise youth to be a “real BFF” to their friends and to help them get help if they are showing signs of drug abuse or addiction. “Be your brother’s keeper,” Karidis said.

Opinion

Winchester, Illinois

Angie Brown said no one has approached her directly to express concern about the raffle and added the gun would never be in the possession of the PAT, that the winner would have to claim it directly from the licensed dealer after passing the required National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check.

“I’m behind them 100 percent, but it’s in a little poor taste with the things that have happened with guns in schools.”

Norine Jefferson Secretary, Winchester School Board “We just wanted to make a lot of money for our school,” Angie Brown said. "We never wanted to offend anyone.” “If it’s legal, it’s legal,” board member Steve Weder said. Winchester PAT Adult Night Out will take place Saturday, Feb. 25, starting 6 p.m., at the Winchester Emergency Medical Services (EMS) building.

I was given an awesome tour of Richard Taylor’s “House of Mirrors” a few days ago such an unbelievable sight to see. I was mesmerized from the time I stepped inside the door until I walked out.

Obituaries Priscilla 'Perri' Bell Priscilla (Perri) Mann Bell died at age 96 on January 31, 2017, attended by loving family in a hospice unit at a Carrollton, Texas, hospital. After independent living in Carrollton since 2011 with devoted help and care from her son Richard, she was recently hospitalized with an infection of bacteria resistant to antibiotics. Perri Bell was an active youth, a wartime bride, a devoted wife and mother, of religious spirit, an inspiring teacher, and an adventuresome traveler. She was beloved by many and a talented leader in many activities, especially for her 100’s of students and colleagues in theater. Perri is survived by her older sister Jean, children Rodney III (wife Joan), Richard (Cherye), Priscilla (Jim Reitan), foster daughter Linda Vollentine, and cousin Tracy Ferguson. Including step-(grand)children and Linda’s descendants, Perri is also survived by six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and many nephews, nieces, and spouses in a large extended family of over 90 relatives. She was preceded in death by her husband Rodney Jr., his sister Barbara and her husband Bill Bercaw; her brother-in-law Eliot, her younger brother Richard (Dick) and his wife Dosia. Perri lived nearly 45 years in Gonzales, Texas, and, before that, with her husband raising three children in Fort Worth, Virginia, and Tennessee. In Texas she pursued postgraduate education at several universities to obtain a teaching certificate and study theater. As her children left for college she resumed teaching and directing plays before moving to Gonzales. There she taught English, speech, and drama; developed the high school theater program; and directed awardwinning high school and community theater. Perri taught, lived, and breathed theater for a decade at Gonzales Independent School District where she inspired thousands of students for a lifetime. At the Gonzales Crystal theater, she directed, acted, and worked in many theater roles, most often with her dearest friend Barbara Crozier, until she was 88. Perri and her students won countless awards throughout her teaching career. After retirement she established a scholarship to continue encouraging students to pursue a career in the arts. She was an active member of the Texas Educational Theater Association, and was an early recipient of their prestigious Founder’s Award. Perri was a founding director and passionate patron of the Crystal Theater in Gonzales, Texas. She was an accomplished actress, inspired director, and talented costume and set designer. She was the co-founder of the Crystal Theater’s acclaimed

Young Program and of the Shakespeare Ninja Troupe. She was quoted in an article in 2008, when at 88 years young after directing a monumental production of “Fiddler on the Roof” at the Crystal, “It’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.” And enjoy it she did. When she retired from teaching, Perri worked in leisure travel. Over several decades she led group tours and traveled with friends and family all over the world. She traveled to most of the U. S., visited every continent and over 100 countries, saw much of Europe, toured Russia, China, South Pacific, India, S. America, and Africa, cruised Europe’s rivers, the Caribbean, and Alaska, and even visited Antarctica. She often presented slideshows and wrote about her travels. In Gonzales, Perri was active in the Presbyterian Church, on the library board, with the youth center - especially raising money, in the Texas Educational theater Association (TETA), and with many clubs including Sesame, Pilot, and Chi Omega. In 2004 TETA gave her an Emeritus Award. In 2007 the Gonzales Chamber of Commerce awarded Perri its Lifetime Achievement Award. Priscilla Evelyn Mann was born March 26, 1920, in Jacksonville, Illinois, to Lecie Evans and Roberts Mann. She grew up during the Depression in Winchester, Illinois, with her two siblings and mother, a teacher. She was valedictorian of her high school class and loved theater and outdoor activities. In 1942, Perri graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois with a B.S. in dietetics and many honors. She married her husband Ensign Rodney Bell Jr. in Champaign, Illinois, on September 19, 1942. They moved to Maryland where he served in the U.S. Navy as a civil engineer. Following the war they started a family and settled in Tennessee. They were married over 54 years. For nearly three decades in Gonzales, they were widely known for entertaining at their weekly social gathering FABB (Friday Afternoon Beer and Bottle club). Perri’s body was cremated and will be interred mid-June at the cemetery in W. York, Illinois, next to her husband’s grave. There will be a memorial service in Gonzales in mid-May. Announcements to follow.

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” —Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV

he advice to cultivate your friendships is good advice on a variety of levels. Having good and reliable friends provides the social support that all of us need. And there is good evidence that loneliness is a serious health risk, increasing your risk of high blood pressure, depression and dementia. The advice to cultivate your friendships is also particularly relevant in today’s highly mobile society. People often relocate because of school or work, and while technology can keep us connected even when we’re halfway around the world, too often we spend our free time diverted from the quality time we should be spending with people who matter to us. There are many ways to cultivate our friendships, and they all start with spending time with our friends and communicating with them when we can’t be with them physically. As always, the golden rule applies to friendship as to every other relationship, and counsels us to do the things for our friends that we would like them to do for us, such as lending an ear, helping in times of need, and just being there to share the good times and the bad. – Christopher Simon

General assistance programs lend a helping hand By JUSTIN A. COBB Scott County Times Charity begins at home, but public assistance begins at the township level, at least in counties organized by township like Pike. “It’s kind of complicated,” Carla Allen, who administers general assistance for 21 of the 24 townships in Pike County, said by phone Feb. 8. Barry, Cincinnati, and Hardin townships administer their own general assistance programs, according to Allen. In contrast to Pike County, Scott County has a county commission form of government and, thus, is not divided into townships so general assistance in Scott is administered at the county level, Scott County general assistance administrator Retha Anders said by phone Tuesday morning. “Ours is done at the county level, and part of the tax money comes to provide services for this office,” Anders said. Allen in a follow-up phone interview Tuesday morning said her office issues “close to $50,000” in assistance each year across the 21 townships whose general assistance programs she oversees. Scott County appropriated $93,746 for general assistance in the budget for the current fiscal year. Across the 21 town-

tance, too, but if Two Rivers has money, we want to spend their money because in May their money,” obtained through grants, “will go away,” Allen said. “We try to use their money first.” Many cases in Scott County are referred to MCS Community Services, which serves the counties of Cass, Morgan, and Scott, and those seeking assistance must often apply there first before Anders’s office can help them, she said. For standard, non-emergency cases, those seeking help in Pike must complete an application, and the office then has 30 days to process it for approval or denial, according to Allen. In Scott County, the general assistance office accepts applications, and then each application is subject to approval by a vote of the county commissioners, according to Anders. Applicants must meet income guidelines, but in Pike County, since general assistance is administered at the township level, those guidelines differ by township, Allen said Feb. 8. “It’s through the townships,” Allen said. “It’s just part of what the township is required to take care of.” Applicants in Scott County must provide documentation proving they reside within the county, as well as any current income,

ships whose general assistance programs Allen administers, she said she sees approximately 400 applicants each year, and Scott County’s office sees “about that many” annually, according to Anders. Pike County has an estimated population of 15,989, 10.3 percent of whom are without health insurance, and a poverty rate of 15 percent, whereas Scott County has an estimated population of 5,092, 8.4 percent of whom lack health insurance, and a poverty rate of 11.3 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. General assistance helps those in need with a variety of issues, ranging from utility disconnection and eviction notices to help affording medication or groceries or referral to a more suitable agency. “If I can’t help them, somebody else can,” Allen said Feb. 8. “Like if there’s something I can’t do like if you need a new roof or have furnace trouble, I usually refer them to USDA.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture office in Quincy offers low-interest loans to qualifying individuals, Allen said Tuesday morning. Some cases in Pike are referred to the Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials, particularly in emergency situations, according to Allen. “We do emergency assis-

Crimestoppers Crimestoppers of Morgan & Scott County are requesting information to assist the Morgan County Sheriffs Office in their investigation of two recent crimes. Sometime between Feb. 2 and Feb. 6, unknown person(s) used some type of small tracked equipment to remove a red PTO rotary tiller from a shed on Earl Road, located in rural eastern Morgan County.  A white Ford truck and trailer were seen in the area

and might have been used to off-load the stolen tiller on Ginder Roadd. Sometime during the overnight house of Feb. 2-3, unknown person(s) broke out a glass door to gain entry to the Franklin Elevator on North Railroad Street in Franklin. Once inside, a pry bar was used to enter an interior office and an undetermined amount of cash removed.  The police are asking that anyone who has informa-

tion concerning these incidents or any other crimes within the two-county area submit a tip online by going to morganscottcrimestoppers.webs.com and clicking the leave a tip button on the home page or calling Crimestoppers at 217-2437300. Tips may also be submitted by texting 274637 (CRIMES). The first word of the text tip must be “payout”.

personal history, and bills or other documentation relevant to the request for aid, according to Anders. “If they’re asking for rent, they have to have something from the landlord, proof they live there and are behind on rent,” Anders said. “If they have an electric bill, they always have to provide the electric bill.” Generally, those receiving Supplementary Security Income (SSI) through the U.S. Social Security Administration do not qualify for help through general assistance, according to Allen. Allen said Tuesday morning this is because SSI is considered cash assistance. “They consider that cash assistance so they have already helped them once so the government isn’t going to help them a second time,” Allen said. The assistance, if an applicant is approved, is sent directly to the vendor with whom the applicant is

seeking help. “No check ever goes to a client,” Allen said. “It goes to the vendor, directly to them.” “There is never any cash that passes to the person,” Anders said. “It goes to— like if it is rent, the check goes directly to the landlord.” Both counties’ assistance programs are funded entirely through the annual property tax levy, with each township in Pike and the county as a whole in Scott levying according to its anticipated need, according to Allen. “Each township is different,” Allen said. “Pittsfield Township has the biggest amount of people we help, but it just varies every year. You never know. Some townships may not even have a case.” The townships are required by law to have enough money on hand to meet general assistance needs of their constituents, meaning if need exceeds the revenue extended from

the levy for general assistance purposes, they would have to borrow it from other funds, such as the general fund, Allen said Tuesday morning. “They have to keep enough of a fund that they can’t run out of money,” Allen said. “They all know, and they’re all good about levying for their funds.” The influx of applicants tends to be steady throughout the year, with no particular time of year especially harder hit than others, according to Allen. In addition, Allen’s office administers the Pike County Christmas basket program, which last year assisted 440 families with toys and clothing, she said Tuesday morning. Allen answers to the township supervisor of each township, and the 21 townships she serves have a board that meets yearly, she said. The annual meeting takes place the first Thursday in October at 7 p.m., Allen said Tuesday morning.

Snow may have caused crash By BETH ZUMWALT Scott County Times A snow covered I-72 may have been the reason for a commercial vehicle crash in Scott County last Wednesday, Feb. 8. The accident was reported at 1:58 p.m. and was near the Scott/ Morgan County line According to the Illinois State Police, a 2012 Peterbilt truck/tractor pulling a 2017 Great Dane semi Trailer, driven by Oscar J. Washington, Jr. 43, Springfield Mo., was eastbound on I-72 when he lost control on the snowroadway and began to fishtail. The semi-trailer wheels struck the guardrail and concrete bridge face, causing the truck-tractor and semi-trailer to flip and come to rest on its side, blocking the left lane of traffic. No injuries were reported as a result of the crash.

Washington was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident/too fast for conditions and the federal motor carrier safety violations of unlawful possession of alcohol in a commercial motor vehicle and consum-

ing alcohol within four hour of coming on duty. The Scott County Sheriff’s Department and the Illinois Department of Transportation assisted at the scene.

Cougars win regional championship By Steven Spencer Scott County Times Taking an eight point lead in the first quarter the Cougars beat the Western Wildcats in the regional championship game Thursday, Feb. 9. Outscoring Western 10-2 gave West Central a good lead that they were able to carry into halftime. The Wildcats looked too turn things around in the second

quarter and outscored the Cougars 11-6. Western was able to cut the Cougars lead down to three points before halftime but couldn’t take control from West Central. Trailing the Cougars 16-13 at halftime the Wildcats gave it their all to steal the win. West Central continued to play an aggressive offense in the second half and refused to give the win to Western. Scoring 31 points in the second half the

Cougars secured their win over Western for the regional championship 47-34. Beating Western sent the Cougars to Calhoun Monday, Feb. 13 to face off against Okawville in the first round of sectionals. The Cougars put up a tough fight but fell to Okawville by eight points 48-40. Danielle Starks led the Cougars in points scoring 14 Monday night.

By Steven Spencer Scott County Times Freshman Gabe Cox started things off with a 3-pointer then two more to take a 5-0 lead over North Greene early in the game Friday, Feb. 10. West Central played a strong defense in the first quarter and only allowed the Spartans to get five points. With seconds left in the first quarter Jacob Hurrelbrink stole a pass from North Greene to get two more points for a score of 11-5 at the buzzer. The Spartans came at the Cougars hard in the second quarter and limited West Central to only scoring four more points before halftime. North Greene managed to improve their offense as well in the second quarter, and attempted to steal the lead from the Cougars.

Eight points in the second quarter wasn’t enough to take control of the game from the Cougars. West Central’s lead was cut down to only two points, but the Spartans were trailing 15-13 at halftime. The Cougars were able to keep their two-point lead in the third quarter as North Greene continued their attempt to take control of the game. Landon Hart and Cox each drained a 3-point shot to help West Central get 12 points in the third quarter and kept North Greene trailing 27-25. There was an intense back and forth as the Cougars tried to maintain their lead. North Greene was able to take a four-point lead in the fourth quarter until Ethan Hartley tied things up for the Cougars 37-37 with two minutes left before the final buzzer. In the last six

seconds of the game North Greene was able to get two more points on the board as they stepped up to the free throw line to steal the win from the Cougars 40-37. With two 3s and four more points from field goals Gabe Cox led the Cougars in scoring. Jacob Hurrelbrink and Ethan Hartley were right behind Cox with eight points each. Cougars head coach Jeff Abell said missing free throws contributed to the Cougars loss over North Greene. “We were 0-7 from the line,” Coach Abell said. “I mean you’re not going to beat a good team missing every free throw you take.” The Cougars head to Greenfield next Tuesday, Feb. 21, and take on the Greenfield/Northwestern Tigers in their first round of regional play.

The cost to construct and acquire the project facilities is approximately $220 million dollars. The filing may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc. gov using the “eLibrary” link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document. For assistance, contact FERC at FERCOnlineSupport@ferc.gov or call toll-free, (886) 208-3676 or TYY, (202) 502-8659. Any questions concerning this application should be directed to Scott Jaskowiak, Vice President, Spire STL Pipeline LLC, 700 Market Street, St. Louis, Missouri 63101, phone: 314-516-8588, email: scott.jaskowiak@spireenergy.com. On July 22, 2016 the Commission granted Spire’s request to utilize the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF16-9-000 to staff activities involved in the Spire project. Now, as of the filing of the January 26 application, the Pre-Filing Process for this project has ended. From this time forward, this proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. CP17-40-000 as noted in the caption of this Notice. Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the Commission’s public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding, or issue a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule will

serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's FEIS or EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 5 copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission's environmental review process. Environmental commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission's final order. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the “eFiling” link at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and 7 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426. Comment Date: 5:00pm Eastern Time on February 27, 2017. Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary.
