Bismarck-Henning parents warned of possible early closure

Parents of students in the Bismarck-Henning school district were notified on July 19 that the district may not be able to reopen after Christmas break if the state doesn’t start paying its obligations. A letter from Supt. Scott Watson was sent to parents and posted on the district web page, www.bismarck. k12.il.us. In it, Watson said the district received not quite $2.8 million, $190,000 less than it was to receive. There is currently no school funding budget for the current school year, which began July 1 and BismarckHenning has only enough reserve funds to remain open for the first semester. “There is really only 1 option at this time if there is no School Budget Funding; (1) open the doors in August and run until the money runs and we go broke, then we close our doors,” Watson wrote. State money makes up almost 34 percent of the district’s total revenue, providing 45 percent of the education fund and 42 percent of the transportation fund. Watson wrote that the state must enact a school funding budget with adequate funds for the upcoming year but that legislators are deadlocked on a funding bill passed by both the House and Senate - SB1 - that would send $500 million to Chicago public schools. “This means less money down state school, therefore the Governor says he will veto it,” Watson wrote. “The toxic climate at the Capital often leads one to avoid getting involved. Yet, as taxpayers and as citizens who are concerned about the health and future of the state, now is the time to be engaged,” he wrote to parents, urging them to contact Sen. Jason Barickman (jason@jasonbarickman.org) and Rep. Tom Bennett (bennett@ilhousegop.emailnb.com) to let them know residents’ feelings about the “current state of our state.” Meanwhile, he wrote, he and Bismarck-Henning’s board will monitor the situation closely and are “committed to doing everything we can to continue the outstanding educational services that your child deserves, and are committed to serving our school community.”

Ordinance OKs part time officers, changes how chief hired

An ordinance approved 7-0 by the Hoopeston City Council allows for the hiring of part time officers and also changes how future police chiefs will be hired. Once hired, part time officers may be used to fill in for such things as vacations and when full time officers who also serve in the military are on their military duties, said Ald. Brandon Hamilton, police committee chairman, at Tuesday’s Hoopeston City Council meeting. Part time officers will supplement the department as “a helping hand,” he said. Part time officers will be hired by the police chief, with the advice and consent of the council. They must be at least 21 years old, have proper training, and be able to pass medical, psychological and physical agility tests. The ordinance also changes who will hire future police chiefs, moving the duty from the Hoopeston Board of Police Commission to the mayor, with the advice andconsent of the council. Hoopeston police chiefs had been hired by mayors until the mid– to late 1970s, when hiring was moved to the police commission. The change was recommended by the city’s attorney for police matters, Hamilton said. Ald. Bill Goodwine was absent from the meeting and so did not vote. In related business, Hamilton said Sgt. Jim DeWitt has been named acting chief, following the death of Police Chief Mark Drollinger on July 6. A moment of silence was held for Chief Drollinger. “The community has really suffered a loss,” said Mayor Bill Crusinberry. In unrelated business, the council: Unanimously approved an ordinance to sell the former Essex Building, listed at 325 N. Dixie Hwy. Approved the annual appropriations ordinance. Heard from Ald. Alex Houmes that new playground equipment is being installed at Northside (Cheese) Park. Heard from Crusinberry that the city’s former mister for mosquito abatement has been located and two parks employees have volunteered to become certified to use it. No action was taken.

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE MOURNS THE LOSS OF FELLOW TROOPER

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Illinois State Police (ISP) Director Leo P. Schmitz regretfully announces that ISP Trooper Ryan Albin, star number 5718, was tragically killed today while on patrol.
Today at approximately 3:10 p.m. Trooper Albin was involved in a crash on I-74 near Farmer City.  Trooper Albin sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash.  At approximately 8:45 pm, Trooper Albin succumbed to his injuries.  
“Our hearts are heavy with grief as we mourn the loss of Trooper Albin,” stated Director Schmitz.  “I extend my deepest sympathy to Trooper Albin’s family, friends, and co-workers.  I pray that those who cared for and loved him find the strength they need during this most difficult time.  No further words can express the pain and loss we are all feeling.”
Trooper Albin joined the ISP on January 8, 2006.  He was assigned to District 6 in Pontiac as a canine officer.  Trooper Albin’s canine partner, “Biko,” was in the rear of the squad car at the time of the crash.  Biko was transported to a local veterinarian’s office and appears to have sustained only minor injuries.

Program to provide children's dental screenings at park

Danville—HALO Project, a Healthy Community Ini- tiative sponsored by Presence United Samaritans Medical Center, in partnership with Colgate-Bright Smiles Bright Futures and Orland Park Dental Services, will host “Smiling Faces Dental Days” on June 21 & 22. Children ages 3–18 will receive a free dental screening as well as a goody bag with dental supplies to use for proper oral hygiene at home. Parents/ guardians must accompany children. The Colgate-Bright Smiles Bright Futures Dental Van will be available: June 21 9-11 am – Hoopeston - McFerren Park 1-4 pm - Danville – Fair Oaks Housing Complex June 22 9-11am - Westville – St. Mary’s Church 1-4 pm - Danville – Vermilion Garden Apartments Children and their parent/guardian from all cities and towns in Vermilion County are welcome at any of the four sites. Services are provided on a “first come first served” basis. Screenings satisfy all Vermilion County School Dis- trict’s dental screening requirement for children in kindergarten, second, and sixth grades. Forms will be completed

and given to the parent/guardian at the time of the
screening.
Colgate-Bright Smiles Bright Futures will provide the
dental van, supplies, and goody bags, while Orland Park
Dental Services will provide the dentist and hygienist
who will be completing the dental screenings. “Dental
health is directly related to other overall health, and there
is now medical proof that gum disease is directly linked
to developing cardiovascular disease,” states Kathy Richard,
Director of HALO Project. “It is extremely important
that children receive appropriate dental care and that
they are taught how to properly take care of their teeth
now in order to avoid the risk of disease later in life.”
 Many children and their families in Vermilion County
do not have access to or cannot afford dental care. Many
families admit to not having enough dental supplies for
each member of their family to practice healthy oral hygiene.
 
 “If you know of family, friends, church members, acquaintances,
coworkers, or neighbors who do not have
transportation to one of the dental van sites, please be a
good Samaritan and provide transportation for them,”
adds Richard.
 If children needing screenings are unavailable to attend
the upcoming dates, local dentists will provide dental
screenings at the Children’s Health Safety & Activity
Fair on August 26 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Village
Mall in Danville.
 For more information about Smiling Faces Dental Days
or the HALO Project, call Kathy Richards at
217.442.6587 or visit presencehealth.org/halo.

Dans Ready for 2017 Season

(DANVILLE, IL) – Fun and excitement are what’s in store for Danville Dans fans this season. From our traditional Poster Night to Christmas in July, the Dans have something for everyone.
 
The 2017 season – the 30th year of collegiate summer league baseball in Danville – kicks off on Tuesday, May 30 against division rivals Quincy Gems with our Opening Night Two-Buck Tuesday Bash. Fans could win concession coupons, t-shirts, or ticket for future games.
 
Fireworks will be in the air at a record six games this season. The first will be Friday, June 2, sponsored by Danville Township. There will also be fireworks on June 10, June 17, July 4, July 8 and August 4.
 
Superheroes and Princesses Night returns on Thursday, June 15. All children age 12 and under dressed as their favorite princess or superhero will get in the game free. “Adults are also invited to get into the spirit, with those in costume able to purchase a special $2 ticket for the night,” said Dans promotion coordinator Mary Ellen Fricke. “We’ll also have a parade of our Superheroes and Princesses during the game.”
 
The Dans will again be having our Paint the Park Pink Night on Saturday, June 17. This event supports the New Horizon Breast Cancer Support Group. Everyone wearing pink will get $2 off their gate admission, and there will be a balloon release prior to the game.
 
The City of Danville will honor those married 50 or more years on Wednesday, June 21.
 
Bark in the Park returns on Thursday, June 29. “We had a lot of fun with the dogs at the park the last three years,” said Fricke. Fans bringing their dogs will get in for half-price ($3).
 
And our annual Military and Veterans Appreciation Night will be held on Friday, June 30. “All veterans and active military get in for free on that night,” Fricke said.
 
This year the Dans will have a home game with fireworks on Tuesday, July 4, another of our nine Two-Buck Tuesdays this season. “There’s nothing better that baseball and a hot dog for $2 each on our nation’s birthday,” noted Fricke. Other activities, including fireworks after the game, are being planned.
 
Additonal fun nights will be a Girls Night Out on Thursday, July 6, a Fighting Illini Night on Saturday, July 8, a Pajama Party on Thursday, July 13, and the Colts in Motion Fan Experience trailer outside the stadium on Tuesday, July 18. Also returning this season are Team Poster Night on July 21, McPack the Place Night on July 22, and Rock the Park Night with the Chicago Blackhawks Band on Sunday, July 30.
 
And the Dans play a home game on Tuesday, July 25, “so we’re going to celebrate Christmas in July,” Fricke said. Santa will throw out a first pitch, and fans are encouraged to donate new toys for the local Toys for Tots program.
 
The Danville Dans are a founding member of the Prospect League, one of the premier college summer leagues in the nation. Baseball players from across America come to Danville to improve their fielding skills and batting with wood bats. The Dans currently have six former players in the majors, with an additional 21 that have worn a MLB uniform.
