Irish Guitar Virtuoso Will Perform in Bishop Hill

Tony McManus, recognized worldwide as the top guitarist in Celtic music, will perform Thursday, September 5th at Bishop Hill Creative Commons located at 309 N. Bishop Hill Street in Bishop Hill, Illinois.

 

To find a unique voice on so ubiquitous an instrument as the acoustic guitar is quite an achievement: to do so within a centuries old idiom where the instrument has no real history is truly remarkable.

 

Tony McManus has come to be recognised throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic Music. From early childhood his twin obsessions of traditional music and acoustic guitar have worked together to produce a startlingly original approach to this ancient art. In Tony’s hands the complex ornamentation normally associated with fiddles and pipes are accurately transferred to guitar in a way that preserves the integrity and emotional impact of the music.

 

Self taught from childhood, initially through listening to the family record collection, McManus abandoned academia in his twenties to pursue music full time. The session scene in Glasgow and Edinburgh provided the springboard for gigs around Scotland and a studio set for BBC Radio, frequently rebroadcast, began to spread the word.

 

Tony’s first self titled recording in 1996, followed by Pourquoi Quebec in 1999 led to worldwide recognition. However, it was with the release of Ceol More in 2002 that Tony’s stature as a first class musician reached a new level. Critics hailed the focussed, spell-binding nature of the music, from the plaintive Jewish hymn “Shalom Aleichem” to the ingenious arrangement of the Charles Mingus classic “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”. Having been nominated as Musician of the Year by both the BBC Folk Awards and The Scottish Traditonal Music awards, in 2002 “Ceol More” hit the Critic’s Album of the year list in Acoustic Guitar magazine and named “Live Ireland Awards” Album of the Year.

 

Tony’s work has come to represent Celtic music in the guitar world, making regular appearances at guitar specific events where just a few years ago jigs and reels would be unheard of. He is invited annually to the Chet Atkins Festival in Nashville, has appeared at Guitar Festivals in Soave and Pescantina, Sarzana and Francacorta Italy; Frankston, Australia; Issoudun and Bordeaux France; Kirkmichael, Scotland; Bath and Kent, England; Bochum and Osnabruck, Germany. In 2004 he appeared at the famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in the “All Star Guitar Night” featuring Steve Morse, Bryan Sutton, Muriel Anderson, Béla Fleck and Victor Wooten and headlined by the legendary Les Paul.

 

His ability to reach audiences unfamiliar with traditional music is remarkable- he is quite comfortable at predominantly classical events such as the Dundee and Derry Guitar Festivals (appearing six times between the two) the Uppsala Guitar Festival and even The Bogotá International Guitar Festival where he followed virtuoso Eduardo Fernandez.

 

Today his live work ranges from intimate solo performance through his trio with brothers Gary and Greg Grainger to the quartet Men of Steel (with fellow guitarists Dan Crary, Beppe Gambetta and Don Ross). He is an enthusiastic collaborator both as a leader and as a sideman having worked with, among many others Dougie McLean, Phil Cunningham, Mairi MacInnes, Liam O’Flynn, Martin Simpson, Kevin Burke, Alison Brown, Martyn Bennett, Natalie MacMaster, Patrick and Jacky Molard, Mairead ní Mhoanaigh and Dermot Byrne, The Nashville Chamber Orchestra, John Jorgenson, Jean Michel Veillon, Catriona Macdonald, Seikou Keita, Xosé Manuel Budiño, Ewen Vernal and Andy Irvine.
 

He is also in great demand as a studio musician having contributed to over 60 albums. In addition to his solo output Tony has worked with both singers and instrumentalists providing his distinctive sound on many successful projects.

 

His 2009 release “The Maker’s Mark” saw him showcase 15 of the finest luthier built guitars available. Recording a solo piece on each instrument, the project caught the attention of the mainstream rock guitar press in a way that acoustic work rarely does.

 

The following year, a chance hearing on Irish radio led to an invite to contribute music to the soundtrack of Oscar winning director Neil Jordan’s film “Ondine” starring Colin Farrell.

 

Never one to be typecast, Tony’s new album “Mysterious Boundaries” is his most ambitious to date. An encouraging challenge from mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall to learn the Bach E Major Prelude on guitar led to an exploration of classical and baroque music – seemingly very different to the jigs and reels that he grew up with. By examining the boundaries between genres and sticking to his steel string guitar (rather than the conventional classical guitar) McManus has produced a work of great originality and beauty, hailed by his peers as “a masterpiece” (Renbourn), “beyond beautiful… it’s PERFECT!” (Tommy Emmanuel) and which contains a truly remarkable rendition of Bach’s colossal Chaconne in D Minor – one of the greatest compositions of any age.

 

Whatever work McManus brings within his scope the listener is assured a journey into the depths of the music in the company of a great talent.

 

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM, and is open to guests of all ages. A $10-20 donation is suggested. Advance reservations can be made at Eventbrite.com.

IVCC Board Selects Maureen Rebholz to fill Olivero Vacancy

 The Illinois Valley Community College board Thursday selected Maureen Rebholz of Peru to fill the unexpired term of trustee Melissa Olivero who resigned July 11.

 

Rebholz, Director of Education at Illinois Valley Community Hospital since 1994, informed the board she plans to run for a six year term when the current term expires in April 2021.

 

“Maureen is lifelong learner who brings a wealth of experience and support for higher education to the table,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran. “She will be a leader just like Melissa was and board chair Jane Goetz is. She will be a tremendous fit.”

 

In her cover letter to the board, Rebholz said, “I believe IVCC is the cornerstone of our communities. It offers quality education, opportunities to improve an individual’s life, a place where young people can begin their future, and older adults can expand their knowledge.”

 

Rebholz graduated from IVCC’s nursing program in 1981, earned a bachelor’s in health arts from College of St. Francis in 1991, a master’s in health services administration from University of St. Francis in 1999, a doctorate in education from Northern Illinois University in 2013, a BS in nursing from Aurora University in 2013 and an online MS in nursing from Western Governors University in 2017.

 

“I live in Peru and have been lucky enough to send my children to IVCC as they began their college experiences. I know how essential IVCC is to our communities; from nursing to the trades, and for preparing students to transfer to other colleges,” Rebholz said.

Prior to selecting Rebholz, the board met in closed session to discuss collective negotiations and pending litigation but no action was taken.

ECMO at OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois Recognized for Excellence in Life Support

OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois has once again received the Gold Level ELSO Award for Excellence in Life Support, which recognizes excellence in providing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to patients.
 

When a child is experiencing lung or heart issues that prevent oxygenated blood from moving through their system, ECMO can act as an artificial heart-lung machine, providing life-saving support until the underlying issue can be resolved and the patient’s lungs and/or heart heal. It is one of the most advanced forms of life support available to patients experiencing acute failure of the cardio-respiratory system.

 

Successful management of these critically ill patients requires a team approach, like that which is available at OSF Children’s Hospital in Peoria.

 

The ELSO Excellence in Life Support Award recognizes programs worldwide that distinguish themselves by having processes, procedures and systems in place that promote excellence and exceptional care in providing ECMO to their patients.

 

“For our patients and their families, this recognition reassures them that all of our patients at OSF Children’s Hospital have access to this advanced life-saving technology and a team of highly-trained specialists that are dedicated to its use in optimizing patient care,” said Mark Plunkett, MD., chief of pediatric and congenital heart surgery and co-director of the congenital heart program at OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois. “This is national recognition of the outstanding quality of patient care and excellent outcomes achieved by our ECMO team.”

OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois has been an ELSO Center of Excellence for the use of ECMO since 2009.

Sen. Rezin Reacts to Del Monte Foods Closure

 State Senate Sue Rezin (R-Morris) released the below statement following the announcement that Del Monte Foods will close its facility in Mendota:

 

“This is yet another disappointment this week for the 38th Senate District and its hardworking people,” said Sen. Rezin. “This news comes as a total shock and I feel for those individuals impacted by the sudden closure announcement. This facility employs hundreds of full-time and seasonal employees, making the closure devastating to our area.

 

“I am also beyond disappointed in the lack of warning given to local officials by Del Monte. This is a major employer in Mendota and the surrounding areas, and local officials weren’t even given the courtesy of a phone call ahead of time.”

Dynamic Controls Inc. Sponsors HVAC Scholarship

Dynamic Controls Inc. recently donated $10,000 to the Illinois Valley Community College Foundation to endow a scholarship for students seeking the Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) certificate. 

 

The first recipient of the scholarship, Guadalupe “Gio” Ortiz of Spring Valley, recently graduated from IVCC’s Adult Education “Bridge to Manufacturing” program. A father of four, Ortiz received $1,000 for tuition, books and educational expenses.

 

“I came to the U.S. from Durango, Mexico, for a better life in the U.S.,” said Ortiz. “Having an education will help me provide a better future for my family. My goal is to get my HVAC certificate, eventually own my own business and help others in the process.”

 

IVCC President Jerry Corcoran said the scholarship will open doors to high-demand careers. 

“Mr. Ortiz’s appreciation for the award is genuine and heartfelt,” said Corcoran. “He believes it will help him learn a new trade and secure his family’s well-being.” 

 

Dynamic Controls Inc. specializes in building automation and security systems integration. It installed the building automation systems in IVCC’s five original buildings and the Peter Miller Community Technology Center.

Local community to be impacted by closure of Dynegy Power Station

“The retirement of the Hennepin plant was something I had worked for several years to avoid,” said Sen. Rezin. “This plant provides a huge economic benefit to the region, and while the news is sure to be devastating to the hard-working employees and their families, it is my hope that our area employers will have their backs so that they can continue to live, work, and raise their families here.”

Attorney General Raoul Expands Lawsuit Against Purdue Pharma

 Attorney General Kwame Raoul filed a motion to expand his office’s pending lawsuit against Purdue Pharma L.P. and Purdue Pharma Inc. (Purdue) to include the company’s owners. Raoul’s office sued Purdue this spring over its deceptive marketing practices designed to significantly increase prescriptions issued for opioids.

 

Raoul’s office is now seeking to broaden its lawsuit against Purdue to include members of the Sackler family, which founded and operates Purdue Pharma. In a motion filed Monday, Raoul seeks to add Richard Sackler, Mortimer D.A. Sackler, Kathe Sackler, Ilene Sackler Lefcourt, Jonathan Sackler, Beverly Sackler, Theresa Sackler, and David Sackler as defendants in the lawsuit. Raoul’s office alleges the various Sackler family members were also members of Purdue’s board of directors and participated in, directed, approved, or were aware of Purdue’s deceptive and misleading marketing efforts.Additionally, Raoul alleges that while the opioid epidemic in Illinois and around the country continued to ruin lives, and Purdue faced mounting legal threats, Sackler family members directed billions of dollars of company money to their personal accounts.

 

“The opioid epidemic facing this country has touched every corner of Illinois, costing lives, ruining families, and devastating communities. As the family behind Purdue Pharma, the Sackler family had a moral obligation to put patient safety before profits – but they chose to do the opposite,” Raoul said. “As thousands of Illinoisans were dying from opioid overdoses, one of the country’s wealthiest families became even more so by recognizing the addictive nature of Purdue’s opioids and pushing to increase prescriptions.”

 

Raoul’s April lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court alleges that, between 2008 and 2017, Purdue dispatched sales representatives to Illinois hundreds of thousands of times. Raoul alleged Purdue also funded third-party publications under the guise of educational materials to promote opioids and downplay their risks, using terms like “pseudo addiction.” Sales representatives informed doctors and patients that the risks could be controlled. Despite knowing that its opioid painkillers were dangerous and being misused and diverted, Purdue allegedly targeted doctors with addicted patients and whose patients were diverting drugs for unlawful use. Raoul alleged that Purdue’s tactics more than tripled prescriptions of its opioids in Illinois.

 

Opioids are often prescribed to treat severe pain, as they reduce the intensity of pain signals reaching the brain; however, they can have serious side effects and are highly addictive. Opioids – such as morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, oxymorphone, and methadone – are a class of narcotic drugs that include heroin, some prescription pain relievers and fentanyl.

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 130 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose.According to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), more than 2,000 Illinoisans were killed by opioid overdoses in 2017. IDPH’s data also shows that between 2011 and 2016, instances of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), which can occur when a newborn is prenatally exposed to opiates, increased by 53 percent. Babies born with NAS experience a variety of medical complications, including withdrawal symptoms, and often require longer hospital stays after being born.

 

Raoul’s lawsuit asks the court to prohibit Purdue and the Sacklers’ deceptive conduct in order to ensure it does not happen again in the future, and to assess penalties against the defendants. Raoul is also asking the court to require the defendants to give up revenues made as a result of the conduct, and pay to help remediate the problem.

 

Raoul urges anyone who believes they or a loved one may be addicted to opioids to seek help by calling the Illinois Helpline for Opioids and Other Substances at 833-2FINDHELP, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

 

Assistant Chief Deputy Attorney General Thomas Verticchio; Assistant Attorneys General Lauren Barski, Jennifer Crespo,Darren Kinkead, Andrea Law; Deputy Bureau Chief Judith Parker; and Medical Director Dr. Monique Anawis, MD, JD are handling the case for Raoul’s Consumer Protection Division.

 

Del Monte in Mendota to Close

Del Monte Foods in Mendota, a large corn and vegetable processing plant is expected to close down, according to multiple reports and company officials, according to WSPY News. Del Monte Foods officials released a statement on Tuesday saying that Del Monte Pacific Limited announced its intention to move to an "asset-light strategy" and divest production facilities of U.S. subsidiary Del Monte Foods.   Layoffs to workers in Mendota will begin in October with the closure of the 431-acre facility on N. 43rd Rd. by June 2020.

 

Employment figures on the company's website indicate 550 seasonal positions, 31 salaried positions and 106 hourly positions would be impacted.  Joselito D. Campos, Jr., Managing Director and CEO, Del Monte Pacific Limited said in a statement that the decision came after careful consideration and that the decision was difficult. He said,"this restructuring is a necessary step for us to remain competitive in a rapidly changing marketplace" and that the company is, "committed to doing all we can to provide the affected employees with resources and support."

 

In Mendota, processed products include peas & carrots, cream style corn, whole kernel corn, mixed vegetables, corn specialties, and lima beans. Additional agriculture interests in sweet corn are contracted with Del Monte in the area. The company is also a large economic asset to the community. The Del Monte plant, previously established as Cal-Pak, has been in Mendota since 1949 and also supplies corn for the Mendota Sweet Corn Festival.  A distribution center in Rochelle is the nearest company facility to Mendota. In addition to the Mendota facility, a facility in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota will close at the end of the current pack season. Del Monte's Cambria, Wisconsin facility will also be sold as an operating facility after completion of the pack season and manufacturing assets will be sold at its Crystal City, Texas facility with a transfer of production to outside locations later this year.

Illinois is ranked eighth in the nation for human trafficking, and the average age at which girls enter the sex trade is only 12 years old! GSNI is equipped to meet individual needs of girls and educate them on risky behaviors while teaching them to be empowered leaders. 

 

The organization’s Healthy Relationships program builds understanding of healthy relationships, along with the awareness and prevention of human trafficking for girls, ages 10–15. Through their work with the Rockford Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation and the City of Rockford Office of Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking Prevention, they are ideally poised as an organization to eradicate human trafficking and domestic violence from our community.

 

If the organization receives the $25,00 grant, funds would be used to:

  • Provide financial assistance for every girl in the program to become a Girl Scout. No girl would be required to pay the membership fee or be turned away for inability to pay.

  • Provide for an expert consultant to assist in further development of the human trafficking part of the programming, train facilitators, and evaluation of the program ensuring success.

  • Provide a portion of salaries for 15 part-time facilitators to lead troops at 24 sites, including schools and community centers, ensuring consistent delivery of the program and allowing facilitators to build relationships with girls in the program.

  • Provide supplies and materials needed for expansion of middle school human trafficking programming.

 

On September 25, the top 40 vote-receiving causes will be announced at www.neighborhoodassist.com and a $25,000 grant will be awarded to each of the affiliated nonprofits. GSNI would especially like to thank State Farm Agent Brian Pinkstaff for connecting them with this grant opportunity!

The Illinois Valley's First Human Milk Depot at Illinois Valley Community Hospital Will Help Babies throughout Illinois and Wisconsin

Illinois Valley Community Hospital is proud to be the home of the Illinois Valley’s first human milk depot. 

 

Pasteurized donor human milk is an important nutritional therapy for many at-risk Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) babies, as it provides numerous benefits in the absence of the mother’s milk, including infection-fighting factors, active growth and development hormones, improved digestion and ideal nutrition. While IVCH supports breastfeeding whenever possible, donor milk can be used when the mother has a low milk supply, is ill or on certain medications, or in cases of adoption or surrogacy. 

 

“The latest evidence and research proves that human milk plays an important role in a child’s development and overall health.  We are trying to build our breastfeeding network in the Illinois Valley and provide the best resources and support possible.  A local drop off is such a huge asset for our community. Illinois Valley Milk Depot is the closest depot within a minimum of an hour radius.” 

 

IVCH Lactation Specialist Melissa Lenhausen BSN, RN, IBCLC

 

The milk depot at Illinois Valley Community Hospital collects human milk donations from healthy, lactating women who are approved donors through Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes. The donations are then sent to the milk bank, where they are pasteurized to eliminate any viruses and bacteria. After pasteurization, the milk is tested once again for safety and distributed to hospitals.

 

“Rigorous safety protocols ensure that pasteurized donor human milk is safe when it’s provided from a milk bank that adheres to guidelines from the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. Potential donors are blood tested and thoroughly screened for communicable diseases, activities that increase the risk of blood borne diseases, and the use of tobacco, alcohol, and medications,” says Summer Kelly, Executive Director of Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes. “Milk collected from Illinois Valley Community Hospital’s milk depot will help support the complex nutritional needs of sick and premature babies in Illinois and Wisconsin.”

 

“Establishing the Illinois Valley Milk Depot at IVCH is a great opportunity for women and families in this area to join in a network of breastmilk advocacy. Breastfeeding support and education takes the work of the entire community, and we are so excited that the Illinois Valley Community Hospital can be a part of that advocacy going forward.”

Bill to help prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome signed into Law

Stricter reporting and investigative requirements will now be required by law in situations where an infant has died suddenly and unexpectedly thanks to legislation sponsored by State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Morris) and State Representative Thomas Bennett (R-Pontiac).

 

According to new law’s sponsors, sudden and unexpected infant deaths are often listed as simply Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) when other contributing factors, like unsafe sleeping environments, may have been a contributing factor. SB 1568 requires coroners to conduct an autopsy following the investigation as well as list any environmental factors that may have contributed to the child’s death on their report. The new law would also require the Department of Public Health to publish current data that it receives from coroner reports so that the public has access to reporting concerning SIDS.

 

“Too often, infant deaths are being ruled as SIDS even when there are unsafe factors present at the scene where the infant passed,” said Sen. Rezin. “By just putting SIDS on the death certificate, potentially valuable information is being left out that could help prevent infant deaths in the future.”

 

“This is an important bill that impacts families during an extremely sensitive time and will help provide more complete information about what happened,” said Rep. Bennett. “This bill will help promote awareness in how to take care of infants.”

 

The legislation was brought forward by Ashley Lamps, a constituent of Sen. Rezin and State Representative Lance Yednock (D-Ottawa), who lost her son in 2013 to SIDS. Lamps now runs a foundation that advocates for SIDS awareness and the use of safe sleep practices.

 

“Illinois needs to have as much information as possible at hand to help prevent these instances from happening,” said Rep. Yednock. “Families across the Illinois Valley, and throughout the entire state, will have better information going forward to take extra care for their newborns.” 

 

SB 1568, which was signed into law on Friday, August 9, is the product of congenial and productive discussions between Ashley, the Department of Public Health, and the Illinois Coroners and Medical Examiners Association.

Instructors are needed in Bureau County in archery, rifle, and pistol, as well as coordinator positions. University of Illinois Extension will cover the cost of registration for two individuals registered by September 27.

Bureau County 4-H members see success at Illinois State Fair

On August 11, 2019, Bureau County 4-H state fair delegates attended the Illinois State Fair in Springfield with their qualifying projects.  The Illinois 4-H State Fair General Project Show is an opportunity for youth to be competitively judged on project work, as well as receive valuable feedback from experts, which allow them to increase their knowledge and mastery in a project area. 

 

Youth who scored an 80% or above received an Outstanding Award, in addition to their ribbon.  First and second place finishers in each class received champion and reserve medallions. Additionally, some projects were judged against a peer group for Inspire Award consideration.  These recipients were judged against other exhibits, not necessarily in the same project category, and awarded by the judge to highlight or acknowledge.

August Board Report

The Illinois Valley Community College board honored Dr. Rose Marie Lynch Thursday night for the landmark contributions she’s made to the college since arriving in 1970.

           

Board chair Jane Goetz unveiled an 18 x 24 plaque topped with a photo from the 1970s of Lynch and mentor Dr. Mary Margaret Weeg.

 

Goetz then read the plaque text: “Illinois Valley Community College expresses its profound gratitude to two of its preeminent humanities leaders: Dr. Rose Marie Lynch and her mentor, Dr. Mary Margaret Weeg.

 

“Hired by Dr. Weeg in 1970, ‘Rosie’ went on to become an award-winning IVCC journalism and English instructor over a 32-year career.

 

“As executor of Dr. Weeg’s estate, Rosie skillfully handled the largest gift in IVCC’s history, a $1.2 million bequest. IVCC named its beautifully-refurbished auditorium the Dr. Mary Margaret Weeg Cultural Centre in 2017.

 

“We will always remember and cherish Rosie for her continued role in that unprecedented donation and for the countless other kindnesses she graciously performed for IVCC and its students.” The plaque will be displayed near the entrance of the Weeg Cultural Centre.

 

Following a public hearing, the board adopted the 2020 budget. Operating revenues and expenditures are balanced at approximately $22.3 million. Revenues increased less than 1 percent and expenditures decreased slightly less than one percent from the 2019 budget.

Total budget revenues are about $32.1 million, a 1.4 percent increase, and expenditures are $32.3 million, a decrease of 6 percent, from last year’s budget.

 

The $220,000 deficit is in the tort and auxiliary enterprises funds and is covered with existing fund balances in those funds.

 

The board also approved:

  • Purchase of Nebraska Book Company software maintenance from PrismRBS for $12,026.
  • Payment of the Continuing Education Center trip “Meet me in Missouri” for $50,770 to Are We There Yet? plus $5,150 to Green River Lines for bus service. Costs are recovered through fees charged to participants.
  • Renewal of various annual services for Jacobs Library from the University of Illinois for $27,975 and NILRC for $11,974.
  • Annual fees payment of $11,550 to the Illinois Community College Trustees Association.
  • Insurance renewals covering property, general liability, commercial auto, workers’ compensation, school board legal liability and more for $218,681.
  • Transfer of $225,000 to the Illinois Capital Development Board as IVCC’s match for the $675,000 appropriated by the state in May for perimeter road and parking lot repaving.
  • The appointment of mathematics instructor David Garrison to fill the vacancy of Emily Lesman. Garrison earned associates degrees from Scott Community College in Bettendorf and his bachelor’s in mathematics from the University of Iowa. He expects to receive a master’s in pure mathematics from Northern Illinois University this month.

Board members also learned:

  • Alyssa Boaz has been hired as a textbook buyer, Isamar Taylor as Financial Aid and Veterans Benefit Advisor, Destiny Griffin as third shift custodian and Benjamin Simpson as second shift custodian.
  • Business Services and Finance administrative assistant Janine Full resigned effective Aug. 16, Payroll and Benefits Coordinator Jeannie Franklin resigned effective Aug. 28, part-time cashier Dava McNally will resign Oct. 11, and part-time Assessment Center assistant Lacey Meyer also resigned.
  • A total of 36 students attended the Aug. 8 Ottawa Center Express Registration while others attended a special Aug. 10 Saturday registration at the Center.  
  • Project Success hosted a successful “JumpStart” program Aug. 12. “There are four reasons why our Project Success students do so well and they are (employees) Cynthia Cardosi, Diane Scoma, Terumi Scully and Director Chris Herman,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran.
  • On Wednesday, a day before classes began, New Student Convocation drew 344 students. Student trustee Matthew Klein produced a YouTube video of the event. “Everything Matthew touches in the way of videos and use of social media turns to gold,” said Corcoran.
  • Trustee Jay McCracken, Interim-LaMoille School District Superintendent, has been nominated for the National LifeChanger of the Year award.

Closed session meeting Aug. 22

Illinois Valley Community College’s board will hold a special closed session meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22 to select a person to fill the vacancy created by the July 11 resignation of trustee Melissa Olivero of Peru. The appointment of a trustee may follow in open session.

Quickly realizing that the kids all showed an uncanny knack for hearing harmonies, as well as for playing instruments, they began performing shows together. “Our house has always been like a live jukebox, with an all-you-can-play selection of musical instruments,” says Jamie. “Music completely engulfs our lives, so our kids have never known a day without it. And that’s just how they want it.” You will be amazed by the music this family presents.

Scottish Sensations Skerryvore to Perform in Bishop Hill

The popular contemporary Scottish traditional music group Skerryvore will perform one-night-only on Thursday, August 22nd at 7PM at Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.

 

Take two brothers, Daniel (Accordion) and Martin Gillespie (pipes, whistles and accordion), steeped in the Scottish west coast ceilidh tradition on the Isle of Tiree, and add in friends Fraser West (drums) and Alec Dalglish (guitar and vocals), with a background in brass bands, wind bands, jazz bands, and with blues, folk and country influences, and you have the 2005, embryonic Skerryvore.

 

Fast forward 10 years, add Craig Espie (fiddle) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass), bring in your album producer Alan Scobie on Keyboards and mix in the Glasgow music scene – from University Applied Music courses and Traditional Music courses at the Royal Conservatoire to sell out gigs at O2 ABC – and you have a band that has already won Scottish Traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ in 2011 – they were to win it again in 2016 – and who, rightly, celebrated their decade by launching their own 6000 capacity festival.

 

By the time the 2019 version of that festival – now christened ‘Oban Live’ – had successfully been and gone, that evolutionary development had added BBC young traditional musician of the year finalist Scott Wood (pipes and whistles), produced ‘EVO,’ their latest album, and the curtain had fallen on their EVO world tour which took their high energy, musically expansive set not just throughout UK and Europe, but also to USA, Canada and Australia.

 

Skerryvore represent the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music, with a growing fanbase worldwide and with the promise of much more to come. 2020 marks the 15th Anniversary of the band.

 

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 7PM, with music starting at 7:30PM, and is open to guests of all ages. A $20 donation is suggested.

 

To purchase tickets please visit Eventbrite.com.

Attorney General Kwame Raoul, as part of a coalition of 13 attorneys general, today announced an amicus brieffiled with the U.S. Supreme Court supporting New York City’s right to enact commonsense gun safety regulations. In the brief, Raoul and the coalition argue that New York City’s independence and sovereignty must be respected as it seeks toensure the safety of its residents.

 

Raoul and the coalition filed the amicus brief late Monday urging the Supreme Court to uphold a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling which held that states and localities can impose certain types of firearm regulations when they are substantially related to an important government objective, such as the protection of their citizens.

 

“From my home in Chicago, to Peoria, Rockford, East St. Louis, Danville, and every community in between, gun violence impacts all of Illinois. As Attorney General and as a father, I am committed to advocating for policies that will protect families from gun violence,” Raoul said. “It is imperative that states maintain the right to enact laws that address the unique circumstances within their borders and keep their communities safe.” 

 

In 2013, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and three residents of New York City filed a lawsuit challenging the then-existing New York City regulation in the Southern District of New York (SDNY). The regulation restricted the transport of firearms held under a premises license, unless the firearms are unloaded, locked, carried separate from ammunition, and transported within city limits. The plaintiffs alleged that the regulation violated the Second Amendment, the dormant Commerce Clause, and the constitutional right to travel. After losing in the SDNY and, subsequently, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, the four plaintiffs took their case to the United States Supreme Court.

 

In the amicus brief, Raoul and the states argue that the Supreme Court has made clear that state and local governments throughout the nation may tailor their firearm safety regulations to deal with varying circumstances in each local jurisdiction, which is what New York City did to protect public safety in the largest, densest, and most urbanized major city in the nation. Additionally, Raoul and the attorneys general make clear that the plaintiffs’ Commerce Clause and right-to-travel claims should also be rejected because states and localities have the right to impose restrictions on firearm transportation.

 

Joining Attorney General Raoul in filing the amicus brief are the attorneys general of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

Nature Detective Camp Lets Youth Explore

Youth ages five through twelve joined University of Illinois Extension 4-H in a fun, educational Nature Detective Camp on Wednesday, August 7th, in Princeton.  This half-day camp offered hands-on activities for youth to learn about habitats, birds, monarchs, and animal tracks.  Youth created nature journals, went on a nature scavenger hunt, made butterfly life cycles, and took home milk jug birdhouses. 

 

The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical, “learn by doing” experiences encourages youth to experiment, innovate, and think independently.      

 

“Nature Detective Camp was a great opportunity for youth to experience a 4-H program and be exposed to a variety of activities related to nature and wildlife,” Danielle Saletzki, University of Illinois Extension 4-H & Youth Program Coordinator shared.  “I look forward to offering more workshops for area youth to be involved and learn new things.”

For more information about 4-H, call University of Illinois Extension – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit Office at 815-875-2878. Extension offices are located in Princeton, Ottawa, Henry and in Oglesby on the IVCC campus.

Attorney General Raoul files lawsuit against EPA Affordable Clean Energy Rule

Attorney General Kwame Raoul, as part of a coalition of 28 states and cities, today announced a lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over its Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule. The ACE rule replaced the Clean Power Plan, the first-ever nationwide limit on existing fossil-fueled power plants.

 

“The people of Illinois and around the country cannot afford the impact of unchecked climate change,” Raoul said. “The EPA’s Affordable Clean Energy rule is a huge step backward in the effort to address the devastating effects of climate change. It is a misguided policy that ignores the science of climate change and will prolong the nation’s reliance on polluting, expensive coal power plants, and will reverse progress toward clean, renewable, affordable energy.”

 

The ACE rule barely mentions climate change or recognizes the threat it poses to the public’s health, the economy, or the environment. Additionally, the rule disregards requirements of the federal Clean Air Act. The Clean Air Act requires that limits on air pollutants, such as greenhouse gases, must be based on the emissions reductions achievable through the “best system of emission reduction.” In the ACE rule, the EPA has eliminated shifting from coal-fueled energy generation to less carbon-intensive generation as a “best system.”

 

The “best system of emission reduction” used by the EPA in the ACE rule – equipment upgrades at coal power plants – will reduce emissions by only 0.7 percent more by 2030 than having no rule, according to EPA’s own analysis. Further, the EPA found that emissions of one or more of three pollutants – carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) – will increase in 18 states in 2030 compared to having no rule.    

 

The International Energy Agency estimates that climate change pollution from the U.S. power sector must be reduced by 74 percent by 2030 for the U.S. to be able to achieve the goal of limiting worldwide temperature increase to less than 2 degrees Celsius. By the EPA’s own estimates, the ACE rule falls short of hitting this target with a projected reduction of only 35 percent. 

 

Already, climate change is harming the well-being of Illinois’ residents, natural resources, and economy. Residents and communities throughout Illinois are continuing to recover from spring storms and record flood levels that impacted 36 counties. Violent tornadoes, extreme cold and heat, and destructive flooding have all become more frequent and life-threatening. These changes have also prevented farmers from planting crops on time, reduced crop yield, and harmed crop quality. Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture declared an agriculture disaster in all 102 Illinois counties. By failing to adequately limit climate-change-causing carbon dioxide pollution from power plants, the ACE rule does nothing to mitigate these harms.

 

The Illinois Attorney General’s office has worked since 2003 to limit carbon pollution from fossil-fueled power plants. Most recently, the Attorney General’s office joined a coalition of states, counties, and cities in filing comments in opposition to the EPA’s proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan, and filed comments in opposition to the ACE rule as proposed.

 

Joining Raoul in the lawsuit are the attorneys general of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. In addition, Boulder, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and South Miami joined the lawsuit.

Hermitage Green to Perform Intimate Concert in Cambridge

One of Ireland’s most popular bands, Hermitage Green, will be performing on Monday, August 19th at a private residence in Cambridge, IL. One glance at their tour schedule, where all other stops are in major metro areas, and you will realize how rare the opportunity to see this group in such an intimate environment really is.

 

Hailing from Limerick, Ireland, Hermitage Green have made a large impact in a short period of time. After having released their first full length album via SONY Ireland and watching it climb the charts with tracks like Quicksand, Not Your Lover, and Save Your Soul, the band has been touring internationally to sold out rooms across Ireland, the UK, Middle East, Australia, and the US.

 

Now the band is back after having spent months in world renowned Rockfield Studios in Wales where their new recordings share company with the likes of Queen, Robert Plant and many others. 
 

With Grammy winning producer Matt Lawrence (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Mumford & Sons) at the helm of this record, the band has created an EP entitled Gold & Rust consisting of 6 progressive sonic masterpieces. 2018 will see the band continuing to tour the globe.

 

“Gold & Rust - the title was inspired by a lyric that Darragh Griffin wrote in the song 'Bring It On Down'. I suppose as an album title it represents the many contrasts of being in a band in 2017. The ups and downs, highs and lows, whatever you want to call it... From playing the mainstage at Electric Picnic, to getting laughed out the door of a bank when looking for a mortgage. From walking out of a sold out Olympia Theatre in Dublin, to playing to 7 people in a town somewhere in the U.S. From telling your bandmates you love them and would do anything for them, to trying to kill your bandmates because they piss you off sometimes. 'Gold & Rust' is the dichotomy between the struggle and the absolute privilege of doing what you love for a living.” - Dan Murphy of Hermitage Green

 

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM. A $20 donation is suggested. Tickets are available via Eventbrite.com. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.

 

For more information please call or email john.r.taylor@gmail.com, (309) 299-4999.

1851 Carpenter Building Rededication Open to the Public

On Saturday August 24, the Bishop Hill Heritage Association will rededicate the 1851 Carpenter Building during the Bishop Hill Chautauqua.  This pre-Civil War structure played an important role in the history of the Bishop Hill Colony, producing furniture and other items for Colony use and for public sale.  The Carpenter Building, as well as the Meat Storage Building, are the two oldest remaining Colony brick buildings. Today, the Carpenter Building contains the U.S. Post Office and Garden Thyme gift shop.

 

Over the last couple of years, the BHHA, with the support of many individuals and organizations, have conducted extensive exterior repair work to preserve this unique building for future generations.  Trillium Dell, located in Knoxville IL, did the historic restoration work. The restoration is now complete, and it is time to honor those organizations and groups that made this project possible.

 

The rededication ceremony will be located outdoors between the Carpenter Building and the Steeple Building.  The formal ceremony will start at 2 p.m., with the following individuals speaking: Brian David from Trillium Dell; Kate Jennings, district director for U.S. Representative Cheri Bustos; and Bruce Karstadt, President/CEO of the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis and Honorary Consul General of Sweden for Minnesota.  Light refreshments, provided by BHHA volunteers, will be served immediately after the formal ceremony. Hammer and Pick will be providing the music. In addition, the Colony Store will also be having a sale on all their items, 10% off for all customers or 20% off if you are a BHHA member.

 

The public is invited to attend the rededication ceremony.   The Carpenter Building is located at 107 North Bishop Hill Street in Bishop Hill, Illinois.  For more details about the rededication or the Chautauqua, please call the BHHA at 309 927-3899 or email bhha@mymctc.net.

 

IVCC holds free volunteer tutor training in September

The Adult Education Community Tutoring Program at Illinois Valley Community College will conduct free volunteer tutor training from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 and Sept. 12, in Room CTC125.

 

Volunteers must have a desire to work with adult learners and be willing to tutor two-to-three hours each week. Teaching experience is not necessary, however, 10 hours of training through the program is required. Visiting an Adult Education classroom is an additional training component.

After completing training, volunteers have the option of tutoring in an English Language Acquisition class, an Adult Basic Education class or a High School Equivalency class. These classes follow the IVCC semester schedule in fall and spring. One-to-one tutoring might be available during summer months.

 

Free online tutor training is another option for volunteers whose schedules do not allow them to participate in the fall training sessions. For information, go to http://www.ivcc.edu/adulteducation/campus-and-community-tutoring.php.

To register for the training sessions, contact Angela Dunlap, campus and community tutoring coordinator, at (815) 224-0479.

Road Closure

Please be advised 2200 North Avenue CH 12, between Il Route 26 and 2400 East Street CH 27, will be closed to thru traffic for construction.  This construction is set to begin next week.  An exact date of closure has not yet been determined, as it depends on contractors’ other operations.  We will keep you all posted as information becomes available to us.

 

Local traffic will have access to the western 1 mile and the eastern 1 mile.  Again, we will keep you all posted on contractor’s operations of this section of road.  Please keep in mind that certain areas of this road will be under total reconstruction and not safe for vehicular traffic.

IVCC Medical Assistant program set for 2020 Launch

 Next spring, Illinois Valley Community College will launch a Medical Assistant certificate program to help address healthcare industry demand.

 

“After consulting with district hospital leaders and researching employment trends, we are convinced demand for Certified Medical Assistants exists locally and regionally,” said IVCC Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs Bonnie Campbell.

 

The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) expects employment of CMAs to increase more than 13 percent statewide through 2026.

 

IVCC’s three-semester program will prepare students for entry-level careers in physicians’ offices, clinics, and other healthcare settings. The program begins in January 2020 and will be limited to 12 students. 

 

CMAs differ from Certified Nursing Assistants in that CNAs work primarily in hospitals and nursing homes; CMAs work in physicians’ offices and clinics. CNAs work under a nurse’s direction, medical assistants work for a doctor. The 8-credit CNA certificate is earned in eight weeks; the 29.5-hour CMA is earned over three semesters. 

 

A CMA’s administrative duties include scheduling and receiving patients, handling phone calls, handling accounts payable and receivable, and serving as a liaison between doctors and others.

 

Clinical duties include preparing and maintaining medical records, taking patient histories and vitals, preparing patients for procedures, assisting doctors with examinations, collecting and processing specimens, performing diagnostic tests and preparing and administering medications as directed by a doctor.

 

On average, CMAs earn $13 to $17 per hour plus benefits. IVCC developed the program in partnership with Kishwaukee College in Malta and shared a consultant to ensure curriculum aligned with current standards.

 

The college is also partnering with the Business Employment Skills Team (BEST) and NCI Works to register the program with the U.S. Department of Labor as an apprenticeship program. NCI Works will be the sponsoring entity and will recruit healthcare providers to participate. Apprenticeship programs focus on ‘earning while learning’ and result in a nationally-recognized credential.

 

NCI Works and BEST Executive Director Pam Furlan said, “We are excited and pleased to be working with IVCC. Our partnership has and will continue to do remarkable things for our local workforce and businesses.”

 

Healthcare providers interested in participating can contact Dianna Schuler at (815) 640-9406. 

IVCC President Jerry Corcoran added, “We worked closely with BEST and NCI Works in launching the program and the critically important apprenticeship that goes with it. It’s another example of IVCC and BEST responding to community needs.”

 

IVCC Director of Nursing Division Julie Hogue said, “Skilled medical assistants’ help facilities provide excellent healthcare; earning the CMA increases a student’s employability and can provide a path to a rewarding and lifelong career in healthcare.”

 

For information, contact Hogue at (815) 224-0481 or julie_hogue@ivcc.edu.

Awarding-winning Bluegrass Group Coming to Bishop Hill

The five-piece Colorado-based bluegrass group FY5, will be performing one-night-only on Friday, August 16th at 6PM at Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.

 

Colorado’s FY5 proudly swim in the deep currents of American music, playing new songs, well-informed of country and bluegrass traditions, but not bound to them. Featuring thoughtful arrangements, strong singing and musicianship, the band strives to connect to listeners with stories of common struggles and big ideas. While their sound evokes timelessness, it is decidedly contemporary, well-traveled 21st century sensibility that informs their songwriting.

 

As they share the stories that drive the songs, FY5's show leaves listeners certainly with tapping toes, but ranging thoughts as well. FY5 is excited for the release of their 4th full-length album in early 2018, The Way These Things Go, featuring their trademark story songs, clever arranging, and catchy hooks. The band was selected as official showcase artists for the 2017 International Bluegrass Music Association conference including a songwriter showcase with Mike Finders.

 

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM, and is open to guests of all ages. A $10-20 donation is suggested.

 

To purchase tickets and for more information please visit bishophillcommons.com.

Music Scholarship created in Memory of Dr. Joan McGuire

Dr. McGuire’s granddaughters Hallie McGuire, left, Sara and Maria Robinson with IVCC President Jerry Corcoran and board member Jay McCracken, a close friend of the McGuire family.

 

The family of the late Dr. Joan McGuire of Peru has established an Illinois Valley Community College Foundation music scholarship in her memory.

McGuire, who died in November 2017 at age 79, taught music for St. Bede Academy, IVCC and Spring Valley elementary schools. She later served as principal at Jackson and Northwest schools in La Salle before being named Supt. of La Salle Elementary Schools. She retired in 2009.

 

The scholarship endowment was created by a $10,000 donation from McGuire’s children: James of Carroll, Iowa, Elaine Robinson of Dimmick Township, Thomas of Dalzell, Jean of La Salle and their families to honor the memory of their mother and grandmother.

“Our mother had a passion for music and for teaching,” Robinson said. “She brought energy and enthusiasm to everything she did.”

 

Dr. McGuire earned her bachelor’s degree in music education from Viterbo College in La Crosse, Wis., her master’s in music performance (cello) from the University of Iowa, and a Ph.D. in educational administration from Illinois State University.

 

An accomplished cellist, she played for symphony orchestras in Springfield, Davenport and LaCrosse and taught private cello lessons. She also served on the board of the Illinois Valley Youth Symphony.

 

To qualify for the award, students must intend to pursue a music major (education or performance) at a university, earn a minimum 3.0 GPA in at least 30 college credits, and be enrolled in, or have completed, IVCC’s Music Theory I course.

 

The scholarship will be awarded for the first time in fall 2020. For information on creating an IVCC Foundation scholarship, contact Fran Brolley at (815) 224-0466 or fran_brolley@ivcc.edu. Fall classes begin Aug. 15.

Core courses taken later in the four-semester sequence include Managing Information Security, Digital Forensics, Security+, Cybersecurity Scripting, Computer Ethics and Ethical Hacking.

 

The program also includes a seven course certificate.

 

“The certificate is a pathway to a valuable credential for IT professionals or those with a formal networking certificate or degree,” said Dean of Workforce Development Shane Lange.

As a result of surging demand – the Center for Cyber Safety and Education estimates there will be a 1.8 million worker gap in the information security workforce worldwide by 2022 – security analysts can command median hourly wages of $45.26 with an annual salary of $94,134 (IDES 2018).

City of Princeton Affirms Recommendation for OSF HealthCare and Perry Memorial Hospital to Consider Partnership Options

The City of Princeton voted at its August 5, 2019 meeting in favor of Perry Memorial Hospital formally beginning a process to consider a variety of partnership options with OSF HealthCare. Perry Memorial Hospital has been an independent affiliate of OSF HealthCare since 2007, and the two parties now have a Memorandum of Understanding, allowing for the Princeton hospital to have exclusive discussions with the Peoria-based system.

 

“We are pleased with the decision by the City Council to allow us to enter into exclusive conversations with our longtime affiliate,” said Bob Sehring, CEO, OSF HealthCare. “Together, we have cared for residents of Bureau, Marshall and Putnam Counties for many years, and look forward to considering ways in which we may further our partnership with Perry Memorial to ensure residents’ health care needs continue to be met.”

 

“The support of the City of Princeton affirms our belief that OSF HealthCare is in the best position to partner with us to ensure health care for our community into the future,” said Annette Schnabel, DPT, MBA, FACHE, President and CEO of Perry Memorial Hospital. “OSF HealthCare is a leader in transforming health care and innovation, and we are excited to look at options that will ensure sustained quality, coordinated care and innovation moving forward.”

 

The August 5 City of Princeton vote was unanimous and the second part of a two-step process which would allow the two parties to enter into exclusive talks. Previously, the Perry Memorial Hospital Board voted in favor of exploring partnership options.

 

“The City recognizes that health care is transforming with significant advancements in technology beyond what we have seen in the past,” said Joel Quiram, Princeton Mayor. "The ability to participate in this innovation is an important point of consideration for our conversations going forward. We believe we are being proactive in looking at the future now. We recognize that certain components of health care come with the personal touch, and we are determined to deliver that aspect of care to our community for decades to come.”

Farm Tour, Dinner, and Concert Event

Grateful Graze Farm, located just outside of Cambridge, is hosting a farm tour, dinner, and concert on Saturday, August 10th. Guests can come for any or all portions of the event.

 

The tour will begin by introducing our farming families and explain the "why" behind our farm. Then we head to the pastures on our wagon and take a tour of the animals grazing. We will dig and discuss soil health and what the animals eat. Next we demonstrate our mobile fencing, shade, water, minerals, and essential oils which allow us to give all our animals fresh food every day. Plus, you will get to see and help the animals do their daily move.

 

After you have observed how we care for our animals, we will gather together to enjoy a delicious dinner using our very own meat and locally sourced ingredients to bring you a nutritious and fulfilling dinner. We've also added something special at the end of this dinner... a Concert with the Cows!

Our guest, Keith Rea, an alternative folk song writer from Longview, Texas, will be performing on stage to help us enjoy the beautiful sunset with the cows. His newest album "Life's an Open Road" shares his experiences while traveling.

 

Keith brings a wealth of experience to the stage as well as a variety of styles and genres. From love songs to train songs, Keith’s lyrics conjure stories of people, places, and situations that feel both familiar and yet somehow fresh. His instrumental styling’s cover the landscape from finger picked ballads to raucous twelve bar blues.

 

Guests are asked to wear appropriate footwear as you will be walking in fields for portions of this event.

 

Reservations can be made on Eventbrite.com or by calling Alyssa Bradley at (309)798-0631.

 

Every paid attendee of the tour will receive a gift certificate at the end of the tour for a $10 online credit. Remember to place your meat order ahead of time and select event pickup so you can take Grateful Graze home with you.

 

Schedule:

Gather in the pasture at 4:30pm

Wagon departs at 5:00 pm

Dinner at 6:30 pm

Concert with the Cows 7:30 pm

Sister-led Bluegrass Band Coming to Bishop Hill

A unique bluegrass group, formed around sisters Lauren and Leanna Price, will be hosting an afternoon performance  on Saturday, August 10th at 2PM at Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.

 

Virginia-based Rebel Record’s most recent recording artists, ‘The Price Sisters,’ feature Lauren Price, mandolin, harmony/lead vocals, and Leanna Price, fiddle, lead/ harmony vocals. Lauren and Leanna are twenty-two year old twin sisters from Sardis, Ohio, who love and perform the traditional style of bluegrass music. They have been greatly influenced and inspired by the sounds of Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys, Hazel and Alice, and the Carter Family, and strive to carry forth those traditional sounds established so long ago. Lauren and Leanna released their Rebel debut in August 2016, a 7-song EP recorded and produced by Bil VornDick in Nashville, Tennessee. The girls were accompanied on the recording by Charlie Cushman, Mike Bub, Ronnie McCoury, Dustin Benson, and Alan Bartrum. Since being released, the EP has been well-received nationally and internationally, and has had much success on the Billboard and Roots Music charts.

 

Presently, accompanied by a full band, The Price Sisters' sound is original and fresh, while also capturing the essence of the traditional style of bluegrass music laid down by Bill Monroe and his disciples. Musicians Scott Napier (guitar), Ruth McLain Smith (bass), and Daxson Lewis (banjo) accompany Lauren and Leanna. Scott started his now 20+ year career in Bluegrass touring with Larry Sparks, and currently accompanies the Lost and Found on mandolin. He remains very active in the promotion and preservation of the music. As one member of the McLain Family Band, Ruth has been a life-long member and advocate of the bluegrass community, playing on stages and in concert halls all over the world, garnering great success and acclaim. In a short time, Daxson Lewis has earned much respect on the banjo in the eyes of his peers and mentors, and has graced the Opry stage as well.

 

‘The Price Sisters’ have performed at festivals from Michigan to Georgia, and Colorado to Maine. A few of their appearances have included Bill Monroe’s ‘Bean Blossom Festival,’ RFDTV’s ‘Cumberland Highlanders Show,’ ‘Blistered Fingers,’ and the ‘High Mountain Hay Fever Festival’ in Westcliffe, Colorado. They have been guest performers on the ‘Cumberland Mountain Music Show,’ and have participated in live performances for PBS’s ‘Song of the Mountains,’ ‘WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour,’ WKYT-TV, and the legendary ‘Wheeling Jamboree,’ in Wheeling, West Virginia. Lauren and Leanna are also 2017 World of Bluegrass Official Showcase Artists. They have opened for numerous bands including IBMA female vocalists of the year, Dale Ann Bradley, and the ‘Kenny and Amanda Smith Band,’ and have also been on-stage guest performers with various bands including, ‘The Lost and Found,’ ‘The Spinney Brothers,’ ‘Bobby Osborne and Rocky Top Express,’ and ‘David Davis and the Warrior River Boys.’ Currently based in Eastern Kentucky, the band continues to make numerous appearances at various venues in the region. In 2015 they were two of six student band members who toured the Peoples’ Republic of China with the Morehead State University Mountain Music Ambassadors. The sisters have also taught various workshops including Bluegrass Bootcamp at Bean Blossom. In both September 2016 and 2017, Lauren was included among the instructors at Mike Compton’s Monroe Mandolin Camp in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition, Lauren and Leanna are 2017 graduates of Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, both having earned Bachelor of the Arts degrees in Traditional Music.

 

The show will begin at 2PM and is open to guests of all ages. A $10-20 donation is suggested.

P2D2 Program 10 year Anniversary

The P2D2 drug disposal program has kept six tons of medications out of local landfills and water supplies since it was established in 2009, according to Jennifer Sines, pharmacy director at Illinois Valley Community Hospital.

 

    Sines’ remarks came after 1,278 pounds of old drugs were recently picked up at IVCH and taken away for incineration as part of a program funded by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. 

 

IVCH is responsible for packing and shipping old prescription, over-the-counter, and veterinary drugs collected at all of the P2D2 drop box locations in LaSalle County.  Sines says the drugs are removed from their containers and packaging before they are shipped off for disposal.

P2D2 drop boxes can be found in the lobbies of the police departments in Peru, Oglesby, Mendota, Ottawa and Streator.

 

“Due to the increased incidence of opioid misuse in this country, it is best practice to remove any unused controlled substances—such as pain, anxiety or sleeping medications—from your home.  This will ensure the medications do not fall into the wrong hands,” says Sines. “You may not misuse narcotics but you never know who does.”

 

Sines noted a syringe/needle disposal program has also been started in LaSalle County.  “Sharps,” as syringes and needles are called, can be taken in plastic containers with screw top lids to the police departments in Peru, Oglesby and Streator.

 

2019 Pyszka Nursing Scholarship Awarded to Peru Resident

Abby Coutre of Peru is the recipient of the Illinois Valley Community Hospital Foundation’s 2019 Debbie Pyszka Memorial Nursing Scholarship, an award established by the family of the late Debbie Pyszka, an IVCH nurse who died in 2017 after working at the hospital for 39 years.  Pictured is Coutre (holding a plaque) being congratulated by members of the Pyszka family.

 

Abby Coutre Wins 2019 Heflebower Nursing Scholarship

Abby Coutre, an Illinois Valley Community College nursing student who was inspired by her grandmother to become a nurse, is the 2019 winner of the Illinois Valley Community Hospital Foundation’s Dolores “Dee” Heflebower Memorial Nursing Scholarship, an award supported by a fund established by Anne and the late Don Baker of Peru in memory of their daughter, the late Dolores “Dee” Heflebower.

 

“My grandmother, Joyce Donahue, dedicated her whole life to helping others while she worked as a registered nurse at IVCH for many years.  I have always wanted to take after her and continue her legacy,” said Coutre. The Peru resident will enter the second year of IVCC’s associate degree nursing program this fall.

 

To be eligible to apply for the Heflebower scholarship, a student needs to have completed the first year of a college nursing program and be a resident of LaSalle, Bureau, Putnam or Marshall Counties.

Freedom House Needs Volunteers

Freedom House is in great need of volunteers to support victims and their families impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault.  Volunteers primarily serve as on-call medical advocates and crisis hotline workers. 

 

People wishing to volunteer will receive in-depth training in a series of free classes running from October 29 to November 19 at Freedom House’s facility in Princeton. The training includes 30 classroom hours and 30 online hours (to be completed before the first classroom day). Classes will be held on four Tuesday evenings (6:00 pm – 9:00 pm) and three Saturdays (9:00 am – 4:00 pm). Participants must attend every class. Applications are due October 4.

 

“Volunteers are essential to the Freedom House mission. There are many ways to help, but our most urgent need is on-call medical advocacy. Receiving immediate compassion and support from a trained advocate is vital for victims to begin healing from trauma,” said Amy Brandon, volunteer coordinator. For more information, or to obtain an application, visit our website, www.freedomhouseillinois.org or call (815) 872-0087.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO REGISTER FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS EXTENSION MASTER NATURALIST VOLUNTEER TRAINING BEING HELD AT STARVED ROCK THIS FALL

Do you love spending time outdoors?  Do you enjoy sharing your passion for the natural world with those around you?  Would you like to “Help Others Connect with Nature?” If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should consider becoming a University of Illinois Extension Master Naturalist Volunteer. The mission of the University of Illinois Extension Master Naturalist Program is to provide science-based educational opportunities that connect people with nature and help them become engaged environmental stewards. Becoming a volunteer through the Extension Master Naturalist Program provides opportunities to explore and expand your understanding of the natural world, to provide educational outreach, and to assist with environmental stewardship projects with local University of Illinois Extension partners.  

 

This year, the University of Illinois – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall and Putnam counties unit, along with Starved Rock State Park, are excited to be offering volunteer training starting Fall of 2019.  The training will cover numerous subjects including Geology, Archaeology, Botany, Wetlands, Ornithology, Forests of Illinois, and Entomology to name a few. Training will be held one day a week over the course of ten weeks, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., from September 3rd to November 5th.  Classroom time will be spent at the Starved Rock State Park Visitor Center. During the 

training, natural areas will be visited for hands-on learning, including Starved Rock State Park, Matthiessen State Park, Dayton Bluffs, Nachusa Grasslands, and Dixon Waterfowl Refuge.  

Volunteers who complete the training session this fall will then work on Extension approved environmental stewardship and educational outreach projects with other Master Naturalists and local partners. In order to maintain Master Naturalist certification, volunteers must complete 10 hours of continuing education and 30 hours of approved service work in the local area annually.
