Vermilion County States Attorney convicts Hoopeston Man

On December 3, 2018, the defendant pleaded guilty in two pending cases: 18 CF 332 and 18 CF 490 and received an agreed to sentence.

In 18 CF 332, the defendant pleaded guilty to Count 1, Methamphetamine Delivery (Class 1 Felony), and received a sentence of four (4) in the Illinois Department of Corrections. In that matter, on June 3, 2018, at approximately 5:00 a.m., Deputy Nicholson of the Vermilion Co. Sheriff's Department responded to the area of Artesian and S. Vermilion, Danville, for the report of a suspicious vehicle stopped at a stop sign. Upon arrival, the defendant was found to be asleep behind the wheel of the stopped, but running car. Ultimately, the defendant was searched, and he was found to be in possession of two baggies. One baggy contained 3.6 grams of methamphetamine and the other baggy contained 3.2 grams of methamphetamine. The defendant was also in possession of $1,150.00 USC.

The above four (4) year sentence is consecutive to the five (5) year sentence to the Illinois Department of Corrections the defendant received in 18 CF 490. in that matter, the defendant pleaded guilty to the sole count of Count 1, Bringing Contraband into a Penal Institution — Controlled Substance (Class 1 Felony). Regarding this charge, in July and August of 2018, Investigatory Bruens of the Vermilion Co. Sheriff's Department uncovered a scheme between the defendant and his girlfriend, Ashley Cornell (codefendant), whereby Cornell would send controlled substances to the defendant while he was incarcerated at the Vermilion Co. Jail on the 18 CF 332 matter. The scheme was uncovered through the monitoring of jail phone calls between the defendant and his girlfriend. Essentially, Cornell would send letters to the defendant at the jail, and those letters contained areas of dissolved methamphetamine. Cornell would note the area by writing something to the effect of "l love you." On August 1, 2018, the jail intercepted a letter from Cornell to the defendant containing a crossword puzzle, upon which was a yellowish stain and Connell's written words "XOXO, love you." The yellowish stain was tested and found to contain methamphetamine.

At the time of his plea, the defendant was on probation for two separate Possession of

Methamphetamine cases (both Class 2 Felonies) in 17 CF 165 and 17 CF 303. Both probations were revoked, convictions entered, and the cases were unsatisfactorily terminated.

The People also dismissed all charges in 18 CF 365 as part of the plea agreement. In that matter, the defendant was charged with offenses related to his getting into a fight with another inmate at the county jail.

local man who was found dead in his vehicle

Vermilion County officials are investigating the death of a local man who was found dead in his vehicle Monday night east of Rossville.

Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn said the sheriff's department got a call about a vehicle in a ditch on a rural road east of Rossville Monday night. When deputies arrived, they found the man deceased in the driver's seat.

He said no foul play is suspected, and the man didn't appear to have injuries from the vehicle going into the ditch. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death, said Hartshorn, who added that it appears from their investigation that the man had become confused, was on the wrong road and was trying to turn around when his vehicle went into the ditch.

 

He said the man was able to call his family, tell them where he was and ask them to come get him. While family members were en route, the driver of a passing vehicle saw the car in the ditch, called 911 and gave the exact location to the sheriff's department.

The Vermilion County coroner's office has not yet released the name of the man, pending notification of relatives.

Farm Bureau Survey: Thanksgiving Dinner Cost Down for Third Straight Year

The American Farm Bureau Federation’s 33nd annual price survey of classic items found on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table indicates the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $48.90, or less than $5.00 per person. Locally, that same meal can be purchased in Vermilion County for just $42.21, a 5.1% drop from 2017. That local meal costs 13.7% less than the national average.

 

“Since 2015, the average cost of Thanksgiving dinner has declined steadily and is now at the lowest level since 2010,” said AFBF Chief Economist Dr. John Newton.

The shopping list for Farm Bureau’s informal survey includes turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a veggie tray, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and coffee and milk, all in quantities sufficient to serve a family of 10 with plenty for leftovers.

The featured food on most Thanksgiving tables – the turkey – cost $21.71 for the 16-pound bird, down 3% nationally compared to last year. “Thanks to an ample supply, turkey remains affordable for consumers, which helps keep the overall cost of the dinner reasonably priced as well,” Newton said.

Other foods showing the largest decreases this year included a gallon of milk, down 2%; three pounds of sweet potatoes and a 1-pound bag of green peas, each down 4%.

Items that showed a modest price increase were the fresh cranberries, up 9%; pumpkin pie mix, up 4%; and cubed stuffing, up 2%.

New this year, to capture the diversity in Thanksgiving meals across the U.S., American Farm Bureau also checked prices on a 4-pound bone-in ham, 5 pounds of Russet potatoes and 1-pound of frozen green beans.

“Adding these foods to the classic Thanksgiving menu increased the overall cost slightly, to $61.72 or about $6 per person,” said Newton.

A total of 166 volunteer shoppers checked prices at grocery stores in 37 states for this year’s survey. Farm Bureau volunteer shoppers are asked to look for the best possible prices, without taking advantage of special promotional coupons or purchase deals, such as spending $50 and receiving a free turkey. After adjusting for inflation, the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner fell to $19.37, the most affordable in more than a decade.

Farm Bureau also surveyed the price of a traditional Thanksgiving meal available from popular food delivery services. This revealed that the convenience of food delivery does have a larger price tag. A 16-pound turkey was nearly 50 percent more expensive at nearly $2 per pound when purchased from a food delivery service. Nearly every individual item was more expensive compared to the Farm Bureau average and the total cost of the dinner was about 60 percent higher at about $8 per person.

The AFBF Thanksgiving dinner survey was first conducted in 1986. While Farm Bureau does not make any scientific claims about the data, it is an informal gauge of price trends around the nation. Farm Bureau’s survey menu has remained unchanged since 1986 to allow for consistent price comparisons.
