Mental Health Month By BCR Staff

PRINCETON – Across the nation, May is recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month. During this time, bigger strides are made to further assist those who suffer from a mental health condition including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and more. Therapist Mike Lau of the North Central Behavioral Health Services said if a family member or friend identifies one suffering from a mental illness or substance abuse-related disorder, the first step is to be there and listen. “In addition, being nonjudgemental regarding what the individual is going through is important,” he said. “Contacting a mental health or substance abuse professional if the loved one is agreeable can also be an important step.” The warning signs for mental illness vary with each person, however, if symptoms start to affect an individual’s life, such as with family relationships or work or school environment, these may be the warning signs that something is going on, said Lau. To prevent a problem from emerging, communication with family and friends and educating oneself about mental conditions can help. “Sometimes individuals are genetically predisposed to mental illness or substance abuse problems, which means there is a greater likelihood at some point in their life they are going to suffer from a mental illness or substance abuse problem,” he said. “Other times the environment can play a huge role in the development of a mental illness or substance abuse problems.”

Medical marijuana The bill awaits Gov. Quinn’s signature By Barb Kromphardt

The Illinois House and Senate have spoken – now it’s in Gov. Pat Quinn’s hands. If the governor signs House Bill 1, patients with diseases such as cancer, HIV or multiple sclerosis would be able to receive a prescription from their doctors for marijuana to relieve their symptoms.

The bill has been on Quinn’s desk since Friday, after the measure passed the Senate easily on a 35-21 vote. It came to the Senate after passing the House on April 17 by a much closer 61-57 vote. All of Bureau County legislators – Rep. Don Moffitt (R-Gilson), Rep. Frank Mautino (D-Spring Valley), Rep. David Leitch (R-Peoria), Sen. Darin LaHood (R-Peoria) and Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) – voted against the bill.

There is other local opposition to the legislation. The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association strongly opposed the legislation, as does Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson. Thompson said he was not trying to take anything away from somebody’s ability to feel better but had serious concerns about enforcement, due to the way the legislation is written.

Frank and Inez Montez of DePue place a flag near the headstone of a veteran’s grave in St. Mary’s Cemetery in DePue. The Montez family has carried the tradition of placing flags on veterans’ graves during Memorial Day weekend since 1996 when Montez became VFW commander. Although Scott Quesse of DePue is now the VFW commander, he is determined to keep the tradition alive. See Memorial Day photos on Page 10.

DePue man keeps Memorial Day tradition alive By Goldie Currie

DEPUE – Although Frank Montez of DePue is no longer the VFW commander, he could still be found in the cemetery days before Memorial Day placing flags near the headstones of buried veterans. Since he first became VFW commander in 1996, he and his wife, Inez, have carried on the well-known community tradition. “It gives me honor to put them on the graves,” Frank, who is a Korean War veteran, said. The tradition involves placing flags to

honor around 139 veterans in DePue, Seatonville and Hollowayville’s cemeteries. In previous years, the Montezes have discussed fear that no one would be willing to carry on the tradition when they no longer could, however this year, that worry was lifted when new VFW commander Scott Quesse and his family and friends stepped up to help. As a new commander, Quesse said he feels it’s a priority to keep the tradition going every Memorial Day. “It’s important to me, because it honors our veterans that have served our county and that have passed on,” he said.

Although he is commander, Quesse said he still feels like the tradition is still Frank’s project, and he is just his assistant. “I’m just assisting him, but hopefully someday I’ll be able to fully take over,” he said. The Montez family was grateful for all the help they received this year. “I only hope they don’t let it go, which I don’t think they will because I’ll push it,” Frank laughed. “I’ve had this (project) for quite a few years, and I just want to keep it going.” Comment on this story at www.

Mental health From Page 1 An important fact to highlight and note about mental health care is the continuing lack of funding from the state and federal government. Despite there being an increase in the number of those reaching out for help and acknowledging they are suffering, the care for them continues to be cut from the governor’s budget year after year, according to Lau.   Comment on this story at

Myths or facts? Therapist Mike Lau of the North Central Behavioral Health Services lists the three most prevalent myths about mental health conditions: 1. Sufferers are not able to recover or eventually feel better. Research and studies have shown those who suffer from mental illness can and do recover and can live very healthy lives. 2. Individuals who suffers from mental illness are dangerous. Research has shown even individuals who suffer from the most serious of mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder are not dangerous. Only about 1 percent of the population of those who suffer with a mental illness have been shown to be dangerous. 3. Mental illness is rare. Current statistics have indicated about one in four individuals in the population will suffer from some type of mental illness in their lifetime, whether it’s depression, anxiety, substance abuse or any of the other types of mental illness.

Jacob and Sophia, again By Barb Kromphardt

Parents who chose the name Jacob for their cooing bundle in blue last year should not be surprised if that child ends up going through his school years as “Jacob W.” or “Jacob C.” For the 14th year in a row, parents have chosen the name Jacob for their sons more often than any other boy’s name, according to a newly-released report by the Social Security Administration. Girls’ names, which vary more often than boys’ names, also held steady this year, with parents naming their newborn daughters Sophia more than any other name for the second year in a row. The Top 10 boys and girls names remained the same except for Liam on the boys’ side and Elizabeth on the girls’ side. Liam, which had not been in the Top 10 last year, climbed all the way to No. 6, knocking Daniel off the chart. The Top 10 boys’ names, in order, are Jacob, Mason, Ethan, Noah, William, Liam, Jayden, Michael, Ethan, Alexander and Aiden. Elizabeth, which was also not in the Top 10 last year, slipped into 10th place, nudging Chloe off the chart. On the girls’ side are, in order, Sophia,

The information is based on a 100 percent sample of Social Security card applications as of the end of February 2013. Sometimes name preferences can vary by state, but this year Illinois parents followed the trends. In Illinois in 2011, Alexander and Sophia topped the charts. Last year, Jacob and Sophia were the top choices, with 758 parents choosing Jacob and 955 parents naming their baby girls Sophia. The Top 10 boys’ names in Illinois, in order, are

Social Security started compiling baby name lists in 1997, and the agency’s website offers lists of baby names for each year since 1880. In the last 100 years, the male name Michael has held the top spot most often (44 times), while the female name Mary has been ranked No. 1 43 times during those years. Comment on this story at

The American Red Cross is launching the Summer of Stories campaign to share the personal impact blood and platelet donors can have on a patient in need and to help ensure a sufficient blood supply is available in the months ahead. Summer is a time for the days that never end. Time for diving in and grilling out. Time to watch the fireworks, to have a picnic, to root for the home team. While many have fun making these memories, hospital patients are counting on eligible donors to make time to give blood or platelets, so they can continue making and sharing their own summer memories and stories. “Stories are the glue that bind many of us together,” said Shelly Heiden, CEO of the Heart of America Services Region. “Whether you’ve needed blood, have given blood or simply want to share a fun summer memory, we want to hear from you.” The Red Cross asks all eligible blood and platelet donors to join its Summer of Stories campaign, which kicked off May 23 and runs through Sept.

9. Through Summer of Stories, the organization hopes to encourage at least two more donors to give blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer — above what’s expected — to help ensure lifesaving blood products are available at a moment’s notice. Historically, during the summer months of June, July and August, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need. But, this seasonal challenge can be overcome two generous donors at a time, at every blood drive, every day. Individuals can visit redcrossblood. org/summer to make an appointment to donate and share their donation story. To kick off Summer of Stories and encourage donations before and after the Memorial Day holiday, all presenting blood donors between May 23 and 31 could win one of five $1,000 American Express gift cards to help create their own summer of stories. Call 800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or visit for more information and to make an appointment.

Remembering Halliday School – and Mrs. Fletcher By Barb Kromphardt

Editor’s note: The following story is another segment in the BCR’s ongoing series on oneroom schools in Bureau County. Virgil Johnson attended the Halliday School, located one mile north of the Red Covered Bridge, for six years in the late 1930s to early 1940s. “On the last day of school we always had a picnic,” Johnson said. “My dad was one of three school directors.” Johnson had the pleasure of being taught by Vera Fletcher the last three years he was at the Halliday School. Fletcher is perhaps best known for publishing a book with her husband, Glen, called “Schools of Bureau County Past and Present” in 1987. In the preface to her book, Fletcher wrote,

“It’s written in a terrible, unenforceable manner,” he said. The legislation would establish a four-year pilot program during which individuals with one of 33 serious diseases would be able to get a special identification card allowing them to buy up to 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana every two weeks from one of 60 statelicensed dispensaries. “That’s a significant amount of marijuana,” Thompson said. What if someone had three ounces of medical marijuana, Thompson asked. Do you arrest them? What if someone with a prescription for medical

“When it became apparent that the early oneroom schools were becoming extinct in Bureau County through consolidating with surrounding districts, and it had reached the point where no school existed in some localities due to too small enrollments and financial problems, we decided to assemble our many pictures and the history connected

with individual districts for preservation.” But that was more than 40 years in the future. Back in the early 1940s, Johnson and his classmates just knew her as Mrs. Fletcher. “Mrs. Fletcher had asked that her salary be raised from $40 a month to $50 a month,” Johnson said. “I remember the board president telling her ‘No.’ They had

What the sheriff thinks Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said he believes legislators should rethink the entire process of the legality of marijuana. “The country has spent billions and billions and billions of dollars on enforcement, and it’s not working,” he said. “There are as many arrests as ever.” Thompson said legislators should consider if it would be worth making marijuana a controlled substance like cigarettes or alcohol. marijuana is arrested? How do you allow them to smoke it in jail without affecting everyone else. In addition, distribution of marijuana is still considered a federal offense, which could make medical marijuana both legal and illegal at the same time. “It creates a vast number of problems for the law enforcement community,” he said.

It also could create problems for the medical community. Rex Conger, president/ CEO of Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton, said he didn’t have an opinion from the clinical perspective of the use of marijuana in patient treatment. But he did have an opinion from the perspective of having to treat patients who abuse marijuana.

run that school on $500 a year for 50 years, and they were not about to raise taxes.” Johnson said Fletcher went on to teach two years at the Colton School, and she finished her career in the Princeton schools. Later she and her husband moved the Colton School to the Lovejoy home. “They also had a log cabin built on the Lovejoy property at no expense to the Lovejoy trust,” Johnson said. Later the Fletchers bought a building in Wyanet and endowed the Henry Thomas museum, which is filled with early Bureau County historical material. Johnson said Vera Fletcher was a direct descendent of Henry Thomas, who is buried in a cemetery across the road from her farm. Comment on this story at Conger said it would be hard to tell the difference between a person who comes into the hospital with a prescription for medical marijuana and someone who has an abuse problem with marijuana. “Opening up the opportunity for legal marijuana makes it more complex for our staff when a patient comes through the door,” he said. Quinn has not said whether he would sign the bill, only that he was reviewing the legislation. Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. Maryland has also approved its use, but the program won’t be implemented until 2015. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews. com.

If you had your high school career to do over, what would you change?

From the editor’s desk A rainy weekend, but I have to say I was so impressed with area towns and villages who shrugged off the weather to honor our nation’s fallen military heroes at Memorial Day services throughout the county. Here at the Bureau County Republican, we attended several services. While we can never make it to each and every one of them, I am so impressed with the folks who go the extra mile to make these services/ceremonies special. Thank you. I am very proud of those men and women and children who participate in the area Memorial Day events. I’m also proud of those folks who didn’t care about the inclement weather and who went to pay tribute at these services. While I know many are celebrating a day off of Terri Simon work, a cookout or the opportunity to sleep in, I applaud you for attending. Not only do these services give you a good dose of patriotism, but you also set a good example for the young people in your family. ••• Congratulations are in order for the high school graduates who received their diplomas last weekend from Ohio, Princeton and Bureau Valley high schools. On behalf of myself and the rest of the staff at the BCR, we are very proud of your accomplishments, and we wish you the very best in your future endeavors. Even though you have that diploma in your hand, we urge you to keep learning. I have a favorite graduation quote by Carol Burnett that says, “We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.” In other words, be prepared to keep on learning. ••• Last week was Police Department Appreciation Week — a time to honor officers and let them know how much you appreciate the difference they make in your hometown. I’m understanding the Hi-Rise Club in Spring Valley presented the Spring Valley Police Department with a cake last week to say thanks to the officers there. What a great idea, and clearly, a well-deserved gesture. It’s never too late. Send a note, stop by the police department or when you see one of our area officers out and about, make sure you tell them thank you for doing their part to keep us safe and take crime off the streets in our communities. ••• While the calendar doesn’t say it, the unofficial start of spring is always Memorial Day weekend. While it’s pretty chilly to head to those outdoor pools yet, please take a moment or two to chat with youngsters in your family about water safety — even your teenagers could get another dose of friendly reminders. Our area lifeguards to a great job protecting children at the pools, but who knows ... maybe your little chat about safety might save your child’s life. As much fun as water can be, it can also be very dangerous. And as long as you’re delivering some safety reminders, now might be a great time to talk about safe bike riding, looking both ways before crossing a street, stranger danger, being safe around campfires and grills ... The list is endless, but your reminder could be the spark that helps a child during their summer fun. As adults, it’s also up to us to watch for excited children when they’re playing, around the water or the campfire/grill, etc. ••• Summer means the beginning of a host of fun events and activities around the county. Nearly every town and village has a festival or something fun going on. Likewise, there are always a ton of fundraisers and other special events. While we know of many of those activities here at the BCR, it never hurts to give us a call to let us know of your special activity. Call the BCR’s newsroom at 815-875-4461 or email us at And while we would like to be at every event, sometimes we can’t be everywhere at once, however we’ll be happy to print your photos. Send them with information to ••• Have a great week. And remember ... you are important to me and the BCR.

I used to brag that I’ve seen Slayer seven times. When I would hear of another member in the know of brutal rumblings coming from the stage of an army-laden amphitheatre, I would tune into their language to gauge what form of fan they were to the tunes I had found such rhythm in. I would ask a few simple questions relating to specific entities of carnal sound and continue forward systematically depending on their answers. If they knew a tune or two I required as part of the example being made, they were welcomed. If they knew many, they were designated a seat at my feast. My roommate at Arizona State University gave me a new set of ears. This fresh duo of drums did not require an animalistic thrash of a restless tempo, but rather a sway into the tranquility of sound. I slowed down and began to hear what I had once sworn against simply for its lack of radical notion during my initial take when combining pace with perceptivity. In the sense that my ears found fire instantaneous many times during the origin of my descent into the listen, I was now of the practice of adding one log at a time, feeding the flame that needed no inferno, but the warmth of each and every shoot that leaped off the body of the lava lacking flow, and into the invisibility of soulful recognition. I smiled as I sat at my desk the other evening, an example being made of the words enveloped with-

Eric Engel COMMENTARY in this current form of explanation. A string of songs came onto the radio application that accompanies my phone, and a gold mine was struck. These songs were of simple sounds, beats with the personality to walk any street in town, to lie down in the middle of the road in the off chance there would be untold stories in the stars, a feat only seen from an original seat in the theater. I no longer cling to the story that began this article with the ferocity of tongue that I once did, but my pride still resides within. I’ve been reading some words wondrously manipulated by Walt Whitman lately, and his language is of an angle that I’ve never seen before — but only felt deep inside on a thought-by-thought basis. I glimpse his take on life as if it is defined by nothing and everything simultaneously. He speaks of every moment with equality, as if one has no zest without the rest, and of each experience as if it were the greatest he ever had because it was plain as day, every view through the eyes simply a disciple of vision in its depiction of image, currently absolute. I realized my own hypocrisy after many years of unnecessary critique. I used to quote blasphemy whenever a statement discredited my musical interests, and harshly circumvent any positive conclusion toward notes I found to sound of bad taste. In my most recent years of actually listening instead of wait-

ing for presumably useless noise to conclude, I have heard songs that birds were born to utter, that a mother might sing to her young. I have never hung to a crumbling string, for the twines which bind my kind have always been of radical solidity, be that only my opinion, but I failed to realize there were many shoots in the jungle to swing from. I’ve learned to open my feet to wherever the road is leading me, and as Whitman so eloquently states, I’m now “adorning myself to bestow myself on the first day that will take me.” The ears I hear with are of no use to anyone but me, and the sounds that come streaming down from the clouds scream of souls that wear a smile, regardless of their appearance to the eye. I compare the gently trickling tickle when I hear about a boy with a coin in an Iron and Wine song to the raw pulsation that rattled my bones when I was creatively convulsing above a concrete slab with a hundred dark knights surrounding, as we smashed with class into each other during three minutes of auditory electricity and voices made of metal. I am no better than the person that swears against any of the bands of which I’m a fan, but I’ve become a better person because of each and every listen I’ve enlisted within. Music is the soothe; it is the juice; it’s in the roots, regardless of where the dial is tuned. Be not a judge of my song, but simply let it play for ... I ever long to hear your sound waves swaying in whichever way they may. Eric Engel, formerly of Tiskilwa resides in Madison, Wis. He can be reached by e-mail at

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 • 7 Discussion — The Princeton Public Library will host a one-night book club discussion on Thursday. See Page 7.

Local author publishes fourth book in the educational series PRINCETON — Local author Jannifer Powelson has recently published the fourth book in the Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk series. These books contain colorful photos, realistic illustrations and entertaining characters that combine to teach children about nature. In her latest book, “Rachel and Sammy Learn to Conserve,” Rachel, Sammy and their classmates help children discover that everyone wins when they conserve the earth’s natural resources. Readers will learn all about planting trees and native plants, soil, water and energy conservation, wildlife habitats, recycling, and more. This book joins the other three in the series that were recently republished by the Progressive Rising Phoenix Press, an independent publisher co-founded by Powelson in 2012. Readers met Rachel and Sammy in “Rachel and Sammy Visit the Prairie,” the first book in Powelson’s Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk series. This book is a great tool

for teaching children to identify 20 common prairie plants. “Rachel and Sammy Visit the Forest” is the second in the series. The beautifully illustrated book helps children learn to identify 15 common spring woodland wildflowers and is a great guide to take along on a nature hike. “Rachel and Sammy Learn About Trees” is the third book in the series. Rachel and Sammy, along with their classmates, their teacher, Mrs. Doe, and Doc Opossum, take a field trip to the forest, where they discover all kinds of interesting tree facts. This book teaches children about tree identification, parts of trees, importance of trees, photosynthesis, and more.

Powelson, originally from Altona, currently lives in Princeton and has been writing children’s books since 2003. The author conducted research on raccoons to write her master’s thesis and now works as a resource conservationist at the Stark County Soil and Water Conservation District. Her daughters and her love of nature, photography, writing and education were the inspirations for the Rachel and Sammy books. Powelson is busy working with her partner at Progressive Rising Phoenix Press to publish a wide variety of children’s books.

Senior Abby Nowakowski drove in the goahead run in the top of the 10th to send the Lady Bruins into Monday’s super-sectional.

From Page 11 home with three medals. Overall, state was a success for me.” State finals day was also a big success for St. Bede Academy senior Steven Gualandri, who placed fourth in the 300 hurdles with a time of 40.28. “It’s really exciting. really a good way to end my senior year,” Gualandri. “It was my best race running with a new PR. Couldn’t have hoped for anything better. I was shooting for top three, but I’m more than happy with fourth place. It was such a great experience going down there.” “What can you say, ran a PR time in the finals and finished fourth in the state. Doesn’t get much better than that,” SBA coach Mike Skoflanc said. Hoffert came in ninth in the hurdles, finishing with a time of 41.07. “I know Logan was a little disappointed with his 300s, but he did great. Three state medals in one State Meet doesn’t happen very often,” BV coach Nick Hartz said. The triple jump went a little better with Hoffert making a hop, skip and a jump of 42-10 1/2 to take eighth place. Neoga sophomore Cory Kersey was the State champion at 45-3. The eighth-place medal in the 4x400, taken by a 3:28.14 clocking, was the first of any kind for a Bureau Valley relay in school history. No Storm relay before them had reached the state finals before. “All four or us had great legs and everyone ran great,” Taylor said. “It really means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to the other guys. It’s a big deal to get a medal at state and for us, we were the first relay in BV history to get a medal at state, so it’s a great feeling.” Hoffert said the Storm’s 4x4 was a complete success this year. “I couldn’t be more proud of the guys. They worked so hard this year and it paid off. We’re the first Bureau Valley relay to medal and that means so much to me. It’s an honor,” Hoffert said. “The 4x4 making history is such a huge accomplishment. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. It was a great experience all around,” Hartz said.

Stewart placed third in Class 1A in 2011. He will jump for Aurora University next year. “He had a great season and career. We are going to miss him,” PHS coach Dan Foes said. “I believe he will have an outstanding college career.” Alex King of Metropolis Massac County won the state crown, flip-flopping places on sectional seeds with Waterloo senior Justin Kretchmer. King cleared 7-1 to win Saturday’s title and Kretchmer went 7-0. Kretchmer had cleared 7-1 at sectionals.

From Page 11 -kel that provided the lone run. Kunkel came up with one out in the tenth and slapped one to the left side. It was obvious to everyone present except Cardinal shortstop Karissa Dobson that there was no chance to throw her out at first. Dobson uncorked a throw that appeared to be on the mark, but second baseman Sydney Johnson was not in position to catch it and the ball went down the right field line. Kunkel used her speed to race all the way to third base and put the winning run just 60 feet away. “I knew I had to get on base,” she said. “As it happened, she overthrew it and I got to second and my coach was calling me to third.” Kunkel got on base all five times she came to the plate with four singles and one hit by pitch. Prokup had nothing but compliments for his junior, calling her the co-player of the game. “Tara Kunkel put the pressure on the defense the whole afternoon – player of the game. Tara’s done a great job. She’s really picked it up the last couple of weeks,” Prokup said. Nowakowski followed Kunkel by hitting a ball that appeared to be off the end of the bat. But it

looped over the head of the third baseman for a single and brought Kunkel in for the lead. “I just had to get the ball in play,” Nowakowski said. “Coach was thinking about bringing in Julia Pohar to bunt with Tara on third base to do a squeeze. I knew I had to show him he made the right choice.” Schweickert made that run hold up in the bottom of the tenth by coaxing two pop ups and ending the game – appropriately – with a strikeout. “She’s a senior and great pitcher,” Stillman coach Shawn Byers said. “My girls could not measure her. She had them off balance the entire game.” The game appeared to be a pitchers’ duel from the score. But the work of the Cardinal pitcher — sophomore Payton Abbot — might be better described as that of an escape artist. Though she did record 11 strikeouts, the Bruins had 12 hits and stranded 13 runners, including three of them at third base. Abbot owes a great deal to her left fielder who battled the swirling wind to record five outs on the afternoon, including a key catch of a long drive off the bat of Christine Daley that she caught just in front of the fence with two on in the sixth inning.
