Edith and Charles Cottaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friendship evolved into a courtship with the couple being married December 28, 1897. Edith shared many a story about her famous inventor-husband, the creator of four-wheel drive and fourwheel steering right here in Lanark at the turn of the 20th Century.

Brigadoon is one of the most cherished American musicals with a lush score, authentic dances and an evocative story.

Carroll County Board Approves Resolution to Extend Great River Trail TONY CARTON For The Prairie Advocate News MOUNT CARROLL — The Carroll County board held its regular meeting on Thursday, May 15, 2014 in the county courthouse. Board member Shawn Picolotti was absent. The board approved the minutes from their April 17 meeting as well as bills paid in vacation and bills as presented by Committees on Claims before approving the transfer of $4K from the General Fund to the Jury Account in response to a request from the Circuit Clerk. Great River Trail extended The board approved a resolution supporting extension of the Great River Trail bike path from Savanna to Galena. The Great River Trail currently runs for 62 miles along the Mississippi River between the Quad Cities and Savanna. It is primarily an off-road dedicated bike and pedestrian path. The resolution approved Thursday supports a 35-mile extension (also mostly off-road) to Galena. The objective is to realize a continuous safe and scenic trail nearly 100-miles in length connecting Galena and the Quad Cities while providing unprecedented tourism opportunities for sightseeing and shopping along the surrounding countryside. Department Reports Carroll County Sheriff Jeff Doran reported the new squad is awaiting pickup and his department has begun a joint study with Jo Daviess and Stephenson counties to consolidate 911 services.

“A report covering the initial part of that consolidation study has to be done by August 30,” said Doran. “After that date a determination will be made to either move on to consolidate the 911 services and dispatch abilities or drop the project.” The States Attorney reported his department participated in Law Day with 8th grade students from area schools. County Administrator Mike Doty complimented the teachers for their participation and the level of knowledge exhibited by the students. “The group I had from West Carroll was remarkably well prepared,” said Doty. “The questions they had were amazing. For eighth graders, they were very well prepared and I was very impressed with the questions they asked.” County Treasurer Diane Powers told the board tax bills will go out Monday, May, 19. Also, Linda Dykstra is retiring from the Treasurer’s of service. The Assessor’s department reported they are interviewing candidates for a summer intern to work on data collection. They expect a decision shortly.

Houzenga stated that her goal is to raise $1300 throughout the summer months to pay the musicians for their time. Alderman Mike Risko commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great idea. I think $500 is reasonable.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;An environmental review has been completed as part of the grant process,â&#x20AC;? said Pepin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The project made the process a bit longer. All of the appropriate letters have been sent out.â&#x20AC;? Pepin was advised by the council to contact MSA for engineering services, and approved a draw down of $1,450 for Community Funding and Planning Services for administration services to date. Pepin also reported on a SEARCH grant opportunity for a waste water treatment plant facility study, and also presented information about a water meter replacement project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The SEARCH grant is through the rural development funding program for studies that the city has talked about doing.â&#x20AC;? The cost would be $40,000-$60,000 for a facilities plan for a treatment plant. The grant would pay for a maximum of $30,000 up to 100%. Pepin advised that she spoke with personnel from MSA about the cost of drawing up and preparing the plan, and was told by Nick Wagner that the cost would be $30,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very good price to be honest with you. MSA is the most familiar with the plant, and have the most knowledge of your structure. Funds are paid out on a fee to submit the application would be $500. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The study would tell us the good, the bad, and the ugly about our plant,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Carl Bates stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last work done there was in 1979, the rest has just been maintenance. We need this document to keep moving.â&#x20AC;? Aldermen approved hiring Community Funding and Planning Services to prepare the application at a cost of $500.00. Pepin also presented information about a water meter project that would potentially save the city money. The same program has been implemented in surrounding com-

If the program is approved in the future, water rates would be increased by $2.00 per month to pay for loan debt costs. Aldermen agreed to allow Pepin to gather more information, noting that the program would not be implemented until next year. Alderman Doug Bergren said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would feel more comfortable seeing what the water and sewer treatment plant will end up costing residents before we add more for meter changes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of issues to look at, I agree,â&#x20AC;? Risko responded. Pepin replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if you started today on the treatment plant, you probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see construction asked Pepin to gather more information on savings with the new meter system, and bring it back for review.

Mayor Bates added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the city should participateâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city thanks you for buying it,â&#x20AC;? businessman Len Anderson said to Bess. Mayor Bates reported that in the month of April, the city recycled 30,100 pounds. The city received the last disbursement of the motor fuel tax in the amount of $7,956.

NAMI Sauk Area Meets

Report

This week the Illinois House voted on a budget for FY15. If anyone remembers, back in March, under House Joint Resolution 80, we voted on a revenue estimate of $34.495 billion. The bill passed unanimously and set the limit for spending to begin negotiations for the appropriation working groups. The working groups for the appropriations committees are responsible for sifting through the agencies and programs funding requests and decide who gets what. After we passed HJR80 it provided these committees two months to meet, discuss, and craft their individual budgets that would come together to create a budget for FY15 under the bi-partisan agreement we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend more than what HJR80 allowed. Tuesday, House democrats agency budgets. This way of budgeting was surprising in that none of my colleagues had ever seen a budget broken down into this many different amendments. The big problem with this is that my colleagues and I only had 48 hours to dissect these

how families and businesses in the 89th district budget on a daily basis and if they did, they would no longer be in business or have a place to live or feed their families. The democrat â&#x20AC;&#x153;doomsdayâ&#x20AC;? budget scenarios are an obvious scare tactic. Trying to scare people into supporting a tax increase is scandalous to say the least. While other states in the region cut taxes and create jobs, Illinois recklessly does the opposite. The best way to strengthen our state and balance the budget is to grow our economy and create jobs and opportunity for people. We have an economic growth plan that will: - Create an environment for employers to compete and prosper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and create good jobs. - Reduce workers comp costs for Illinois employers. - Let the tax increase expire. - Get people back to work. Reduce our high unemployment rate. Working people create economic activity, they create income and sale tax revenues, and they reduce the demand for government services. The budget that was passed this week doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accomplish this, but hinders our State from moving in the right direction. Illinois is a great State with many advantages, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not living up to its potential â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not even close. In the words of President Abraham Lincoln: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.â&#x20AC;? As always, you can reach me or

as many people during the 20th century than did wars between countries. In fact, even more millions of people would have been killed or had their lives blighted by the dreary vapidity of life under tyranny were it not for Americans thwarting the expansionist designs of such democidal maniacs as Hitler and Stalin. This begins to answer the other part of our question â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whyâ&#x20AC;?: For whom did our soldiers die? Obviously, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for themselves. They laid down their lives so that othersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; originally Americans, but later, people of many nationalitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;might live and enjoy the blessings of liberty. Scores, if not hundreds of millions, of people are not only alive, but are free today, because Americans took up arms and laid down their lives for the sake of others. The Bible says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friendsâ&#x20AC;? (John 15:13, ESV). Those fallen heroes, whom we remember on Memorial Day, indeed loved much. God bless our departed compatriots. Let us honor, salute, and remember what they gave up so that we could live in liberty. --Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson is an adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

Nursing Home Week. A representative of Fehr-Graham was present at the meeting to report on the status of current projects within the city. Contractors involved with the work on Tech Drive will be returning later in the week, and will begin paving the following week. Aldermen learned that FehrGraham would need authorization for an ordinance in order to continue progress with the waste water treatment plant. A construction permit has been sent to the Environmental Protection Agency for approval, and those in attendance learned that next week is National Public Works week. Aldermen were encouraged to thank city workers for the extensive work that has been done with the winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water main breaks. Police Chief Brian Melton commented that he had submitted his monthly report. Items for consideration and possible action included proceeding with preliminary fee schedule changes pending city attorney review.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;With rates increasing, $75 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover that,â&#x20AC;? Clerk Melanie Schroeder replied. Discussion over raising the fee for acquiring a building permit was discussed, along with the fee for demolition permits. Schroeder responded regarding demolition fees stating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current fee of $5 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even come close to recouping the costs of Garyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time and internal paperwork.â&#x20AC;? Finally, Dykhuizen reported that there seems to be a discrepancy regarding the amount of time allowed to pay a parking ticket in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city says 48 hours, and the code says 30 days.

Why support Mount Carroll & Carroll County?  ntrepreneurship: Entrepreneurship fuels Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.  ublic Benefits and Costs: Local stores in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services relative to big box stores and strip shopping malls.  nvironmental Sustainability: Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.  ompetition: A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.  roduct Diversity: A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.

Also new this year is that every day will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids Dayâ&#x20AC;? on the midway hosted by Trendy Amusement. Hours for the Kids Days are from 11 a.m. to closing each day.

SENATE WEEK IN REVIEW May 12-16, 2014 SPRINGFIELD – Democrat legislative leaders pushed more than 70 spending bills through the House of Representative May 15, passing what is essentially the Governor’s permanent tax increase budget. Because the spending bills rely on money from the extension of the 67% tax hike passed in 2011, opponents said voting for the budget was synonymous with voting to make the tax hike permanent. The tax-hike budget narrowly passed the House, with most of the individual bills receiving the minimum 60 votes needed to win approval. The budget bills the House approved represent $3.5 billion over the revenue estimates they adopted earlier this year, and are $2.5 billion over the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 budget passed last year. The House Speaker advanced this budget with the intention that lawmakers who supported the appropriation bills must vote for an income tax increase to fund them. Republican lawmakers also linked the votes to a tax hike, arguing that a vote to spend the money was identical to voting for the taxes. Approval of this budget is irresponsible and likely unconstitutional—because the Illinois

By Senator Tim Bivins IL 45th District, Dixon from 1997 to 2004, which was longer than he served in the United States Senate. Senate Bill 125 allows the Secretary of the Senate to loan or donate to a presidential library or museum any books, items, furniture, equipment or other materials or property used by Obama if such items are in the possession or control of the Senate. The loan or donation will be on the terms and conditions which the Secretary of the Senate deems to be in the best interest of the state. ‘Cupcake Girl’ If the full Senate approves a committee-passed reform, 11-year-old “Cupcake Girl” Chloe Stirling could be back in business. House Bill 5354 is the result of a case where the Madison County Health Department shut down Chloe Stirling’s homemade cupcake business, because she was not in compliance with the state’s sanitation code or regulations for cottage-food operations. She primarily sold her products to friends and occasionally at fundraisers. This legislation is an attempt to loosen the regulatory burden on small, home-based food-preparation operations by permitting home-kitchen operations to sell food if they meet certain requirements, including limiting sales to no more than $1,000 a month

and notifying the buyer that the food was produced in a home kitchen. Other Committee Action In other action, committees approved legislation—House Bill 8—to require employers to make reasonable accommodations for pregnant employees, and a measure—House Bill 5622—aimed at protecting workers who receive their pay in the form of reloadable payroll cards. House Bill 5622 seeks to address a problem where high bank card fees in order to access their pay. More information on these and other measures acted on by the Senate is available on the Senate Action Page (www.senategop.state.il.us/aboutthesenate/senateaction.aspx) on the Senate Republican Web site.
