Richard A. Henderson enters a Putnam County courtroom Thursday. He is the 26-year-old Standard man whom investigators believe stabbed and killed 16-year-old Diamond Bradley. Henderson is charged with the Class 3 felony of concealment of a homicide death and is being held on a $1 million bond. Henderson also faces additional charges as the state continues to process more evidence.

Defense argues for speedy trial Judge may set a trial date on Thursday BY DAVE COOK news@putnamcountyrecord.com HENNEPIN — Entering the courtroom under heavy security, Richard A. Henderson, the Standard man whom investigators believe stabbed and killed 16-year-old Diamond Bradley, whistled as he waited for his Thursday afternoon hearing to begin. Henderson, 26, is charged with the Class 3 felony of concealment of a

homicide death and is being held on a $1 million bond. “It is incumbent upon the state, not the defendant, to commence trial, under my theory, by June 5,” Public Defender Roger Bolin said. The state has 120 days in which to begin a trial, and Bolin said his client has been in custody since Feb. 5. Putnam County State’s Attorney Christina Judd-Mennie argued the last three continuances were agreed upon by both sides at previous hearings, and that by doing so, the 120-day count would have stopped during those periods. Judge Stephen Kouri asked Bolin if he was asking him to set a trial date.

“No, your honor, we are objecting to any trial set after June 5,” Bolin said. Kouri asked both the defense and the prosecution to submit case law decisions they Diamond wished him to review Bradley in argument of their positions. He said he would make a ruling during a May 17 status hearing. It is also expected Henderson will eventually face additional charges as the state’s evidence against him continues to be compiled.

6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 17. Putnam County High School will celebrate the graduation of the class of 2018 starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 18, in the R.M. Germano gymnasium in Granville.

PCHS Principal Clay Theisinger said the ceremony’s keynote speaker will be Carla Passini, a class of 2007 Putnam County High School graduate and current head coach of the Quincy University softball team.

PUTNAM COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL

Just call it ‘Little School on the Prairie’ Habitat restoration project will provide food for migrating pollinators

“This project will provide an important food corridor through Granville for the monarch butterfly.” Mark Wackerlin

Putnam County High School custodian

BY DAVE COOK news@putnamcountyrecord.com GRANVILLE — Most of the great Midwestern prairie has been lost and replaced by farmland and community development. A new project at Putnam County High School is aimed at restoring a portion of this habitat that’s vital for migrating species. “This project will provide an important food corridor through Granville for the monarch butterfly,” Putnam County High School custodian Mark Wackerlin said. Wackerlin, who also has a bachelor’s degree in environmental science, is one of the project’s leaders. He has joined Tracy Reaska, Putnam County High School director of facilities, and the students of Alisa Stewart’s Environmental Science class to help restore portions of the school’s landscaped lawn to a native prairie. “We’ve grown many of the plants being planted this semester during our class and have also been sorting seeds, planting, and transplanting. It’s been a long winter, and getting to spend some time working

The students of Alisa Stewart’s environmental science class recently helped plant some of the many coneflowers which are now lining both sides of PCHS’ new sidewalk. Coneflowers are an important food source for the adult Monarch Butterfly. The school will also soon be home to milkweed, the only plant on which the butterflies will lay their eggs and that the caterpillars will eat. on a project which will improve our school has been great,” Stewart said. Stewart’s class is also helping with Putnam County High School American History teacher Cory Meyer’s Victory Garden project, as well as

continuing to run the school’s recycling program. Wackerlin and the students recently helped to plant 200 coneflowers along both sides of the school’s new sidewalk and around the building.

“Coneflowers are an important food source for the adult Monarch butterfly, and we’re also planting milkweed, the only plants where they’ll lay their eggs and which their caterpillars will eat,” he said. Other native plants that will soon begin appearing around the campus and benefit a wide variety of pollinators include Rudbeckias, Prairie Docks, Wild White Indigos, Compass Plants, Big Bluestems, and more. Putnam County High School senior Tony Kerivan described what he enjoys about this environmental restoration project. “Being involved in something that helps our environment is inspiring, and I think this class is a great way to teach future generations to respect our planet and take care of it,” he said. Stewart said a future goal is to complete a wetland project next year on the property of Trent and Jan Griffith, which is adjacent to the high school. Their son, Luke, is in Stewart’s class.

HENNEPIN

Judge allows videos, but not testimony from investigating officer in regards to vehicle BY DAVE COOK news@putnamcountrecord.com HENNEPIN — The first testimony was heard during murder suspect Clifford A. Andersen Jr.’s final motions hearing on Tuesday. Andersen, 68, of Standard is accused of killing Deborah Dewey of Ladd, his sister-in-law, on Aug. 22, 2016. Her body was found on Sept. 12, 2016, in a shallow grave in the Deborah yard of a Standard Dewey home for which Andersen was caretaker, and the police arrested him the following day. The prosecution, led by Assistant Illinois Attorney General Bill Elward, called Illinois State Police Special Agent Ryan Kaney, a veteran of 11 years, to testify in regard to internal and external security camera footage taken from the truck stop in Morris where Dewey’s vehicle was recovered. Kaney was questioned as to how often the times shown on surveillance footage at businesses sync with the actual time. “Almost never,” he answered. He then described how they corrected the inconsistencies during

• PLANTING Continued from Page 4 “Last semester, students visited the property, learned about native plants, measured the property, and designed projects which they presented to the Griffiths, Superintendent Carlson and Principal Theisinger. We were hoping to work on the site this spring, but unfortunately the weather never cooperated. We have plans for next year’s class to grow, clear and plant in the fall, and it should take about three years to get it where it needs to be,” she said She added the family has agreed to let the class restore other sites, as well. “It’s all very exciting, and the hands-on nature of it is great for the students,” Stewart said. Putnam County High School Principal Clay Theisinger said the project began with discussions between Reaska, Wackerlin, Stewart, Superintendent Carl Carlson and himself. Wackerlin’s background in envi-

the investigation by sending an officer outside to appear on the live feed of the camera to confirm that it was indeed a live feed and then used a cellphone to see the how much adjustment was needed. According to Kaney, the external video from Aug. 23 was roughly eight to nine minutes ahead, and the internal videos were found to be approximately one hour and nine minutes behind real-time. Defense lawyers, Drew Parker and his son, Robert Parker, of Peoria’s Parker and Parker Law Firm, questioned if there was a standard operating procedure for these occurrences, if there had ever been issues with this practice, and if Kaney was trained in video forensics. Kaney replied that there was no standard procedure, he knew of no issues, and that he wasn’t trained in video forensics. The defense also raised questions regarding the equipment’s software, download procedures, internet connections, power surges, resolution, color distortions, settings, third party interference, and chain-of-custody issues. Elward said the date on the Aug. 23 video is correct, and adjusting the time in the way investigators did shows Andersen walking into the truck stop while talking on the

phone. Records also show he made a call during that time to a friend who was seen later in the video coming to give Andersen a ride. Elward has stated Clifford the friend, who initial- Andersen Jr. ly lied to investigators at Andersen’s request, later recanted his statement and admitted to meeting Andersen at the truck stop on the day in question. The prosecution says it was so Andersen could leave Dewey’s car there and that he left it unlocked and with the keys in it in hopes that it would be stolen. The prosecution played the video from the internal security camera and asked Kaney if he could identify the man walking through the door and talking on his cellphone. Kaney identified the man in the video as Andersen. A 13-second video from outside the truck stop was then played, and the defense got Kaney to admit he couldn’t identify the man or the vehicle in question. Judge Stephen Kouri said he didn’t hear evidence the vehicle in the video was Dewey’s, although he did allow its admission, but he won’t allow Kaney to testify on it. He did, however, allow “the circumstantial

evidence of the internal video,”. “The time stamps are problematic, but it will be up to the jury. There are a lot of arguments that can be made on both sides,” Kouri said. During the hearing held the day before, on Monday, the prosecution argued Dewey had lent Andersen thousands of dollars to help with several high-interest loans he was having trouble paying off. They listed several checks that had been made out to Andersen and also discussed his gambling habits. The state argued that this was a motive for killing Dewey. The defense was successful in getting a hand-written note found in Dewey’s apartment barred unless the prosecution can show how the figures written on it correlate with her bank records. The note could be significant because it includes the name “Skip,” a known nickname of Andersen. The prosecution and defense are now working on developing a juror questionnaire with assistance from Kouri, and they’re scheduled to work out the final details on June 28. Putnam County State’s Attorney Christina Judd-Mennie said the jury will come in on July 9, which will be considered the first day of the trial. Kouri has also arranged for a new venue in Peoria if a jury can’t be selected in Putnam County.

ronmental plant sciences has been helpful in assisting with classes this year that are learning about ecology and horticulture. Throughout the remainder of the year and next year, students are learning how to care for the plants and their growth through the application of the skills and knowledge they’ve learned in class. “This campus project provides an authentic application of students’ learning to the immediate community. Furthermore, Mr. Wackerlin’s leadership and partnership with Mrs. Stewart illustrates the fact that PCHS is a learning community. No matter the role of an individual in our school, we are a community of learners and teachers,” Theisinger said. “From teacher to paraprofessional, and administrator to custodian, we all have a responsibility to provide opportunities to students by engaging them in meaningful learning experiences. The fact the plants PCR photo/Dave Cook and landscaping will be aesthetically pleasing only enhances this com- Along with landscaping the school’s new sidewalk with native pollinator plants, the munity by providing a welcoming school will also be helping to restore a nearby wetland, as well helping other areas entrance to our school,” he said. around the grounds to return to their natural, environmentally friendly state.

DIXON WATERFOWL REFUGE

Planting expedition to aid restoration efforts Volunteers sought for Saturday event

This new addition is not yet open to the public, but is scheduled to be opened in June. A similar event was held last year, and ecologists will

also be able to see how the seeds of those plants have taken root. The Sandy Hollow tract is a rare example of prairie and savanna

habitats, and its diverse environment provides an important home for a wide number of plants, insects, birds and other animals. Snacks, water, tools, and gloves will be provided, but please wear appropriate clothing. The fieldwork will consist of planting at sites reached by short hikes through rolling grasslands, so long pants, closedtoe shoes and hats are recommended. Children 16 years old or younger must be accompanied by a parent or other guardian. The Wetlands Initiative will also be hosting its second Bio Blitz on Aug. 3-4. Volunteer citizen scientists will be working with ecologists to conduct a survey of the several hundred species calling the 3,000-acre site home. The refuge is located along the Illinois River and Route 26 and is just south of Hennepin. For more information, visit wetlands-initiative.org.

The recovered weapon, a knife, is being analyzed at the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services laboratory. Bradley, of Spring Valley, was last was seen by her family the evening of Jan. 23. She was reported missing the following morning. Her body, stabbed multiple times, was found Jan. 27 alongside 850th North Road in Putnam County. According to Putnam County Sheriff Kevin Doyle, investigators think Henderson and Bradley met online and that Henderson picked the teen up near her home between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 24. Investigators believe Henderson then drove to the spot where her body was found and killed her after an altercation. Henderson was arrested after being interviewed at the police sta-

tion. Tips, interviews, surveillance cameras and pings from Bradley’s cellphone link him to her death,

Doyle has said. Henderson’s next hearing scheduled for 11 a.m. May 17.

BY DAVE COOK news@putnamcountyrecord.com HENNEPIN — Nature lovers will soon have the perfect opportunity to experience the success of the restoration efforts at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge, as well as the satisfaction of helping with its future progress. At 9 a.m. Saturday, May 19, volunteers will gather at the refuge’s observation tower with the ecologists and representatives of The Wetlands Initiative. The group will then head out to plant a wide variety of native seedlings at the Sandy Hollow tract. “We always get a nice local response,” Suzanne Wagner of The Wetlands Initiative said.

• HEARING Continued from Page 2 Depending on when the rest of the discovery evidence is obtained, new charges may be folded into one trial, or it may result in a second trial at a later date. During the ongoing investigation, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office developed information that Henderson may have discarded a weapon at Color Point, the commercial greenhouse in rural Granville where he had been employed. On April 11, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in a search by Tri-DENT, Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services, the Spring Valley Police Department and the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office.

ILLINOIS VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Draft five-year strategic plan unveiled Mission, vision statements receive updates OGLESBY — Illinois Valley Community College’s draft strategic plan for 2018 through 2023 was presented to board members Thursday by Vice President for Academic Affairs Deborah Anderson. The plan will result in new mission and vision statements, as well as goals and objectives that align with key performance indicators.

In a letter introducing the plan, IVCC President Jerry Corcoran said, “One of the many good things that came out of our preparing for the comprehensive quality review visit by the Higher Learning Commission team in 2016 was the decision to update our strategic plan by first breathing new life into our academic plan. “Our plan reinforces our commit-

ment to longstanding institutional priorities such as providing excellent and accessible higher education to our students, serving as the premier choice for lifelong learning, Jerry contributing to the Corcoran economic and work- IVCC president force development of the region, and distinguishing ourselves as a center for the arts, humanities and cultural

offerings.” The new mission statement is: “Illinois Valley Community College provides a high-quality, accessible, and affordable education that inspires individuals and our community to thrive.” The vision statement is: “Illinois Valley Community College is the preferred gateway to advance individual and community success.”

Who ruined Illinois? Many share the blame

G

overning” is a respected magazine that reports on state and local governments in the U.S. Reporter Daniel Vock recently posed this question in a lead article in the May edition: Who ruined Illinois? Vock interviewed former Illinois Republican governor Jim Edgar (1991-98) at length, who said: “Illinois government did work (presumably when he was in office), but then we had bad luck with a couple of governors (presumably Rod Blagojevich and Pat Quinn, both Democrats).” I have great respect for friend Jim Edgar, and I am not privy to the whole of his interview. Yet, I beg to differ with this suggestion that all blame be placed on the two more recent, admittedly failed governors he fingers. I contend that many, maybe most, of us who participated in Illinois politics and government over the past half century share at least a sliver of the blame for our present parlous situation. Unfortunately, we have been part of a state political culture that considers it okay to take advantage – legal advantage preferred – of our state and local governments for personal gain, just about whenever we have been able to do so.

State employee pensions offer prime illustrations. Our pension crisis is the huge

UNDERSTANDING ILLINOIS Jim Nowlan albatross around our collective neck. Moody’s, the financial ratings agency, has estimated that Illinois has $250 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. That works out to about $50,000 for each of our 5 million households.

This happened for four fundamental reasons: 1) State government failed to contribute its share of funding; 2) We had unrealistic expectations about growth in our pension assets; 3) We made flawed assumptions about employee mortality; and 4) There was a feeding frenzy from the 1980s to early 2000s to enact scores of richly sweetened employee benefits. A recent paper by Ted Dabrowski and his colleagues at Wirepoints, an independent research, commentary and news aggregation firm, makes a persuasive case that most of the blame here indeed lies with the piling on of ever-juicier pension benefits. And just about everybody in the political game has either sought these benefits or, like me, turned an indifferent, not-my-issue blind eye

as they were larded on. (Disclosure: I receive $30,000 a year in retirement, plus great, low-cost health care, for 12 years of credit in the State Universities Retirement System.) The examples are too numerous to cover here, so a few egregious ones have to suffice: • Half of Illinois state judges net more in pension benefits the day they retire than they did in their last month on the bench at a judge’s salary of $192,000! And judges can count toward their 20 years of service for maximum benefits earlier work as assistant state’s attorneys, lawyers for park districts, and so on. • A number of retired state lawmakers, several of my friends among them, gamed the system so as to double or triple their normal retirement income. They accomplished this by working for another state or local government agency, for as little as a month, at a much higher salary than they earned as legislators. This increased their pensionable base by two or three times. • Then there were school boards, certainly paragons of local rectitude, which often spiked the final three years of salary for their superintendents and other staff. This increased the pensionable base for these employees, often dramatically, without the accompanying contributions to support the pension payouts. • And, of course, we can’t forget the several early retirement

programs for teachers and state employees, most of which were not fully supported actuarially. The biggest “contributors” to the unfunded liabilities of the five state employee retirement systems have been, first, the change in 1989 for annual increases in retirement pay, from simple to compound interest. Second, there were several enhancements of the benefit formulas in the late 1990s, which increased significantly the final percentage of salary that would make up retirement pay. State Sen. Cal Schuneman, R-Prophetstown (1981-93), was a lone voice during this slopping at the feeding trough. Cal stood up time and again on the Senate floor to declare, like Cato the Elder trying to save the Roman Republic: “You people are going to bankrupt this state.” Not enough listened, and now the situation is dire.

But what to do?

Dabrowski calls for freezing government salaries and privatizing much of state government (which would reduce state employment and pension obligations). He says this would bring the unions to the bargaining table to renegotiate pension benefit contracts. Draconian; yet dire situations require tough measures.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Legislation is a bad deal for water customers To the editor: Future water rates – and how much they will increase throughout the state – now depend on how Illinois senators vote on House Bill 4508. This legislation, which passed the House, is a bad deal for water customers, as it would make it much easier for a private company to purchase public water systems and dramatically increase customer rates. As written, House Bill 4508 allows for only two companies, American Water and Aqua Water, to buy municipalities’ water systems at an over-inflated cost. That cost would then be passed directly

to ratepayers. This legislation offers a blank check for the companies to use ratepayers to expand their own company footprint throughout Illinois. Sue Rezin There are no protecState Senator tions for new customers from seeing a large rate increase. In 2016, American Water increased water rates on their customers in their Chicago Metro region, which includes Will and Grundy counties, by nearly 42 percent. In 2009, ratepayers received a 26 percent increase. Yes, infrastructure upgrades are needed, and delivery costs do go up, but increasing rates on customers

by 42 percent is out of control. Most families experience sticker shock when they open up their water bills. Several years ago, we saw Bolingbrook, Homer Glen, Lemont, Romeoville, and Woodridge essentially go to war with American Water, filing a lawsuit to take back control of their water system in the area. The main reason? Preventing American Water from continuing their non-stop water rate hikes on customers. What customers really need is a real, hard cap on future rate increases for all ratepayers affected, stricter oversight by the Illinois Commerce Commission, and the ability for local voters to have a voice by referendum before their water systems are sold to a private

company. With an income tax increase last year combined with the second highest property taxes in the nation, it’s imperative we do not add House Bill 4508 (as written) to the mix that hurts families and will only add to the mass exodus from our state. I urge readers to reach out to their state senator and tell them to vote “no” on House Bill 4508.

IVCC’s 52nd annual commencement set for May 19 OGLESBY — Larry Huffman will deliver the keynote address at Illinois Valley Community College’s 52nd annual commencement at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19. Huffman was hired as IVCC’s dean of student development in 1974. He later served as Kankakee Community College’s Executive Vice President for Academic Programs and Services and within a decade was named Kankakee’s president. He was named as IVCC’s ninth president in 2006, serving until June 2007. In 2009, he returned to KCC as interim president. That same year, he was appointed to fill a vacancy on IVCC’s board and said, “I have a deep-rooted personal interest in IVCC and the Illinois Valley. IVCC has a long, proud history, and I welcome the opportunity to again work with the board, administrators, faculty and staff.” He was later elected to a six year board term that ended in 2017. Also at commencement, Lara Petersen of Hennepin will read her winning Paul Simon Student Essay and the Wind Ensemble, conducted by Gene Montgomery, will perform. President Jerry Corcoran will welcome graduates and confer certificates and degrees. Vice President for Academic Affairs Deborah

Pfc. Michael Glenn recognized MAGNOLIA — Pfc. Michael D. Glenn of Magnolia, a 2015 graduate of Putnam County High School, was named the Distinguished Honor Graduate of his Advanced Individual Training class at Fort Sill, Okla. The honor was determined through written, field and physical fitness testing. He was also one of the two graduates to score a 100 percent on his final Joint Fires Operation exam. This accomplishment earned him the experience of getting to call coordinates to an Air Force B-52 bomber, which dropped a 500-pound bomb on target.

Glenn is a forward observer and fire support specialist with the National Guard who will gather intelligence for the Army’s field artillery. After a year spent training with the military, he will be returning to the University of Illinois as a junior and a member of the ROTC. Glenn plans on completing his double major of ag law/policy and agronomy with a focus on bio-genetics and will then be attending law school while remaining with the military. Glenn, the son of Laurie Glenn, lives on the family farm in Magnolia.

Larry Huffman Anderson will present the Class of 2018; 2017-18 student trustee Matt Pehoski of LaSalle will present the invocation; and 2018-19 student trustee Joseph Marenda of Spring Valley will present the benediction. A total of 245 graduates have elected to participate in the ceremony.

PRINCETON

PRINCETON — Multi-talented singer/songwriter Christine Lavin will perform at the Princeton Coffeehouse at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19. Working as a musician based in New York City since 1984, Lavin just released her 23rd solo album, “Spaghettification,” which charted at No. 5 for the month of September 2017 on the International FolkDJ charts. Songs of hers have been performed by artists as diverse as Broadway stars Betty Buckley, Sutton Foster and David Burnham, and cabaret diva Andrea Marcovicci. Lavin is also an author and videographer and frequent collaborator with people in other fields. The book “The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet,” written by Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, includes the complete lyrics to Lavin’s song “Planet X.” Bringing her own kind of humor and novelty to her shows, Lavin has recently added intermission tutorial activities — teaching audience members how to fold cloth napkins in the fancy “Downton Abbey” style. She says even she can’t believe how popular this half-

time activity has become. Lavin has won five ASCAP composer awards, the Backstage Bistro Award for Best NYC Singer/Songwriter of the Year, The Kate Wolf Memorial Award and her album “Good Thing He Can’t Read My Mind” won Album of the Year from the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. Lavin’s song “Amoeba Hop” was turned into a science/music book by illustrator Betsy Franco Feeney (Puddle Jump Press). It received the stamp of approval from The International Society of Protistologists and a “Best Book Award” from The American Association for The Advancement of Science. Jay and Linda Burt are the sponsors of the Christine Lavin show. Admission to this month’s show is $20 at the door. The Princeton Coffeehouse is located at the Open Prairie UCC Church, 25 E. Marion St., in downtown Princeton. The venue is completely accessible and there is ample free parking nearby. Doors open at 7 p.m. Fair trade coffee, Photo contributed tea and homemade desserts are available.

PERU — Local business owner and reservist Chad Gilbreth, Edward Jones financial advisor, and Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development have partnered with Hero Box to collect everyday items for deployed soldiers. Although he has never been deployed, Gilbreth has served with men and women who have been, and knows it can be a rough and challenging environment to be exposed to for long periods of time. Both Gilbreth and the Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development believe in taking

care of our soldiers defending our country and putting their lives in harm’s way. A semi trailer will be parked at 425 First St. in LaSalle from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 25, in an effort to collect items soldiers often go without while deployed, such as hand sanitizer and lip balm. The goal for the day is to fill an entire semi-trailer. WLPO radio on-air personality Rod Thorson will be broadcasting live from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

FASF scholarship increases to $2,000 a year

Continued from Page 18

PERU — The Father Allen Scholarship Fund board of trustees has announced the value of the annual scholarship awarded to a deserving student attending St. Bede Academy has been increased from $1,500 to $2,000. Charlie Faletti, scholarship chairman, said that this increase is effective with this years award. He also noted that this is the third increase in the award since the program was initiated some 14 years ago. Bob Hunteman, finance chairman, pointed out that since the program began more than $40,000 in financial aid has been awarded to young men and women to help them defray the cost of their tuition.

The FASF program was begun in 2003 by the St. Bede Class of 1961. It was named in honor of Father Allen Mattingly, a St. Bede Benedictine priest who served the Benedictine community and the Academy for many years and died unexpectedly in 2003. The organization is seeking new members to join in the management and administration of the program. Interested individuals can visit www.fasf61.wixsite.com/mysite to get additional information on the program and the committees they may have interest in serving on, or they can contact Mike Rossiter, search committee chair, at 309-693-9081 or email jrossi7237@sbcglobal.net.
