Shimkus Will Not Seek Re-Election

Collinsville, Illinois – Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) released the following statement:

"As Illinois candidates begin to circulate petitions next week, now is the time for me to announce that I will not be seeking re-election.

"It has been the honor of my lifetime to be asked by the people of Illinois to represent them in our nation’s capitol. Each day I have tried to do this as best as I possibly could, and my success lies squarely at the feet of my incredible staff in Illinois and Washington, DC.

"I will leave the political field knowing that I have served honorably and, with the help of many, accomplished a lot for my constituents, our state, and our nation.

“Serving in Congress has been a blessing, but it has also been a sacrifice for my wife Karen, and our boys. Now young men, David, Joshua and Daniel continue to make me proud. I regret the times I have been away from the four of them and thank them for their constant love and support.

"My family and I thank you for allowing us the honor to serve. Our dedication to our country, our state, our church, and our community will not waiver as we embark on the next chapter of life. God bless you, and God bless America.”

Courthouse Shooting Victim from Hoopeston

The Vermilion County jail inmate who was fatally shot after attacking and injuring a sheriff’s deputy at the courthouse on Friday had a long and violent criminal history.

Vermilion County Coroner Jane McFadden late this morning identified the inmate as Daryl L. Perkins, 55, of Hoopeston.

McFadden said an autopsy was performed on Saturday, but details aren’t being released because the investigation by Illinois State Police and her office is ongoing.

The incident occurred at 10:06 a.m. Friday in the holding-cell area of the courthouse, at the corner of North Vermilion and Main streets in downtown Danville.

According to sheriff’s Capt. Mike Hartshorn, the deputy was moving Mr. Perkins between holding cells. When the deputy opened the door of a cell, Mr. Perkins attacked him and stabbed him in the face multiple times.

Then the deputy discharged his firearm and struck Mr. Perkins, Hartshorn said. Both men were taken to OSF Sacred Heart Medical Center in Danville for treatment.

The deputy has not been identified.

Mr. Perkins was in jail awaiting trial on a long list of charges stemming from a June 25 incident. In July, he was charged and later indicted on one count each of aggravated domestic battery, felony possession/use of a firearm, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery-great bodily harm, aggravated battery-deadly use of a weapon and two counts of domestic battery (subsequent offenses).

At the time, he had been on parole following his release from the Illinois Department of Corrections for a 2015 residential burglary conviction in Vermilion County.

On Friday, Mr. Perkins — who had been ordered to wear a GPS electronic monitor at all times — appeared before Circuit Judge Nancy Fahey at a 9 a.m. hearing to request a new judge. Also in attendance was Assistant Public Defender Aaron Brakke, who was representing him, and special prosecutor Daniel Weiler of the Illinois Attorney General’s office.

Fahey granted the defendant’s motion, and his case was sent to Circuit Judge Tom O’Shaughnessy for reassignment.

After the hearing, Mr. Perkins was escorted by deputies to the holding-cell area, located on the northeast side of the first floor of the courthouse, where the incident occurred.

People inside the courthouse said they were asked to stay inside their office and courtroom until the deputy and Mr. Perkins were taken outside. Hartshorn said the incident was contained to an isolated area and didn’t disrupt court proceedings the rest of the day.

Mr. Perkins’ criminal history goes back to December 1999, when he was charged in Vermilion County with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated battery with a firearm stemming from a Dec. 20, 1999, incident in which he shot his then-wife.

The following December, he pleaded guilty to aggravated discharge of a firearm and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

In 2014, he was sentenced to three five-year terms for felony possession/use of a firearm; aiding/abetting/possession/selling a stolen vehicle; and possession of methamphetamine (under 5 grams), all charges out of Montgomery County.

In 2015, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the residential burglary for which he was on parole.

At the time of his plea, two 2014 criminal cases — one for unlawful restraint, meth possession, possessing drug paraphernalia and meth precursor, and another for meth possession — were dismissed.

In December 2013, a Vermilion County jury convicted Mr. Perkins of domestic violence, but acquitted him of unlawful use of a weapon in a 2011 case. He was ordered to serve two years of probation and 180 days in jail and perform 200 hours of public service work.

Danville, Vermilion Advantage and Carle team up on medical campus

Carle plans to consolidate its current Danville facilities and develop a medical campus between Logan and Gilbert streets, Carle announced today with the City of Danville and Vermilion Advantage.

The development proposal spans approximately 17 acres, consolidates Carle facilities at 311 W. Fairchild St. and 2300 N. Vermilion St. and will better accommodate patients in Danville, Vermilion County and neighboring communities.

“We’re thrilled about this development opportunity,” Mayor Rickey Williams said. “With the potential to spur economic growth in Danville and surrounding areas, this project can better support our community and potentially revitalize the neighborhoods near our downtown district.”

The proposed development will expand outpatient services into a single, multipurpose campus that features primary, surgical and specialty care.

“We believe this project is an opportunity to benefit the Danville community and all those we serve. As always, we intend to be a good steward of the community’s healthcare resources and provide more accessible services to those who need it,” said Caleb Miller, Carle senior vice president, Primary Care & Specialty Care Services. “We appreciate the partnership with Vermilion Advantage, the Vermilion County Land Bank, the City of Danville and Mayor Williams’ support as we move through this process.”

Carle has been leasing the building on Fairchild Street since 2006. The lease will conclude and provide an opportunity for a new use. The facility on Vermilion Street would be available for sale, and Carle Arrow Ambulance services will relocate to this new campus.

The Vermilion County Museum at 116 N. Gilbert St. in Danville will remain. Carle will incorporate the treasured facility into the campus design.

Vermilion Advantage, an organization that advocates for opportunities that strengthen the local economy, played an integral role in supporting this proposed development.

“This project has the potential to give new momentum to the area and truly benefit the downtown and our entire Vermilion County community,” Vermilion Advantage President Vicki Haugen said. “Quality, accessible healthcare is critical to our stability and growth.  It makes perfect sense for us to support this plan for Carle to provide greater service and accessibility to patients and families in our area.”

The development is contingent on property availability and zoning in addition to state approval of a Certificate of Need. Dependent on necessary approvals, the development could be complete at the end of 2021.

THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE REMINDS MOTORISTS SCHOOL IS STARTING

 Illinois State Police (ISP) District 21 Commander, Captain Don Aaron Harsy, would like to remind motorists that area schools are opening their doors to begin the new school year.  The start of the school year means an increase in pedestrian and vehicular traffic around schools. 
Motorists need to be watchful of slowed or stopped school buses, crosswalks and of children walking or riding their bike to and from school. Be mindful of children possibly darting out from between parked cars. Plan ahead and allow extra time for these school buses and the increase in traffic flow during the morning and after school hours. A friendly reminder that loading and unloading happens twice, in the morning and after school. Please be patient and aware in order to allow students and children to get to their destination safely.   
Motorists are also reminded to obey the school zone speed limit and avoid distracted driving.  The speed limit in school zones is 20 miles per hour and is in effect from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on school days when children are present. Motorists are reminded that driving while talking on a hand-held cellular device is strictly prohibited, as well as texting while driving. A first time offense and any subsequent offense is considered a moving violation.   
Motorists approaching a stopped school bus with lights activated and a sign extended must stop their vehicle before reaching the school bus.  Failure to do so can result in a $150 fine and a three-month driver’s license suspension.  Remember, pedestrians have the right-of-way in a crosswalk. 
 
 
 

 "As children prepare to return to school, motorists are encouraged to be mindful of the increase in both vehicular and pedestrian traffic, said Captain Harsy.  Motorist are reminded of school zone speed limits and to avoid distracted driving violations which can result in accident and injury,” added Harsy. 
 
The ISP Safety Education Officers (SEOs) are available to provide educational presentations promoting safe driving at area schools and throughout the community. The goal is to ensure the safety of our driving communities and increase public awareness as the new school year begins.
