LEPC hears plans for annual exercise

[JUNE 30, 2001]  The Logan County Local Emergency Planning Committee met June 27 to learn about projects in progress and continue planning for the Emergency Services and Disaster Agency and LEPC annual exercise.

The exercise, which simulates a disaster and provides training for the organizations that must cope with such a disaster, will be on Sept. 29 this year. Two simulations are planned, one in Mount Pulaski and one in Lincoln.

According to Mike Patridge, the Mount Pulaski exercise will be a simulated hostage situation and will be at the Mount Pulaski High School. Because the date is a Saturday, no students will be present, and students will not be used in the exercise, he said. The state police Tactical Unit and local fire and police departments will take part.


The second exercise, to be held in Lincoln, will simulate a chlorine leak. Chlorine is the most hazardous material usually found in a community.

Lisa Funk, member of the response and preparedness committee and an electrical energy dispatcher for CILCO, said she has applied for a $30,000 state grant to buy two Bullard thermal imagers, one for the Lincoln Fire Department and one for Lincoln Rural Fire Department. The imagers allow firefighters to see people trapped in a burning building or identify "hot spots" even through smoke and flames.

"These units are really important if a life is at stake," she said. Lincoln Fire Department does have one thermal imager, but owning another would allow an imager to be used by another fire department, she noted.

Terry Storer, secretary of LEPC, reported that he is working on the threat assessment that has been requested by the U.S. Department of Justice as part of its planning to combat terrorism. Each county in every state is to make a local assessment of its vulnerability to terrorist attacks and also of its capabilities to handle any threat that might come up. The assessment includes identifying sites and functions that might be targets for terrorist attacks, such as utilities, places where the public is gathered, and firms dealing with genetic engineering and other biotechnology.

"It lets us see where we are and what we can do, then look at what we need to do to get where we need to be," Storer said.

The Department of Justice has $2 to $3 million available in grants to help communities prepare for terrorist incidents, he added. He said he would have the assessment finished by Sept. 1.

Dan Fulcher, president of LEPC, emphasized that while Logan County is good at dealing with tornadoes and floods, it needs to be better prepared for acts of terrorism, including bio-terrorism.


Sean O’Leary, liaison to LEPC from Illinois Emergency Management Agency, said that the state of Illinois is working on creating an Illinois State Police team that can respond to terrorist acts. He also said the National Guard has a team headquartered in Peoria that can handle hazardous material and terrorism threats.

O’Leary commended the Logan County LEPC on integrating the fire and police departments, as well as many other organizations, and on having representatives of so many community organizations at its meeting.

"You may be on the cutting edge of communities in the state," he told the group.

Meeting dates of Sept. 19 and Dec. 19 were set for the rest of 2001. LEPC will also have representatives in the emergency services tent at the Logan County Fair.

Sen. Bob Madigan resigns from Senate, accepts post with Industrial Commission

[JUNE 28, 2001]  After 14 years of dedicated service to the 45th Senate District, Sen. Bob Madigan, R-Lincoln, is resigning from office to pursue another career opportunity. His resignation will take effect June 30.

"I have enjoyed every day of my tenure in the Illinois Senate," said Madigan. "It has been both a pleasure and privilege to serve the residents of the 45th District. Originally, I had hoped to serve 12 years in this position, but I have been blessed to serve even longer. For that, I would like to thank my constituents for their trust in my abilities. It has been a tremendous honor to serve as your state senator."

Madigan was appointed Wednesday by Gov. George Ryan to the Illinois Industrial Commission. His appointment will be effective July 2. The Industrial Commission administers Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Diseases Acts that provide compensation for accidental injuries or death suffered while employed in the state.

"I am grateful for this opportunity and proud of the confidence the governor has shown in making this appointment," Madigan said. "This will be a new challenge and one where I believe I can make a contribution."


As a legislator, Madigan has made several noteworthy contributions over the years. He currently serves as chairman of the Senate Insurance and Pensions Committee (formerly the Insurance, Pensions and Licensed Activities Committee). He is also a member of the Licensed Activities Committee and the Agriculture and Conservation Committee.


[to top of second column in this article]

In the General Assembly, Madigan was a leader in the fight to maintain the financial integrity of the five state pension funds, while boosting retirees’ benefits. He was the leading negotiator for the retired teachers health insurance program and for mandatory auto insurance and consumer issues. Madigan also fought successfully for HMO reform and a Patients’ Bill of Rights in Illinois. This year, Madigan successfully pushed for creation of an insurance ombudsman to advise the uninsured on their options.

In the area of agriculture and conservation, he passed the Conservation Enhancement Program and supported key proposals to diversify agriculture and boost rural economics. Madigan is immediate past co-chairman of the Illinois Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus.

Before his tenure in the Senate, Madigan served as Lincoln city clerk, taught special education and was a claims specialist for State Farm Insurance. He and his wife, Connie, live in Lincoln and are the parents of two adult children, Patrick and Amy. They are also the proud grandparents of 3-year-old Teran.

The 45th Senate District includes all of Logan, Mason and DeWitt counties and portions of Tazewell, McLean, Piatt and Woodford.

Airport Committee to
look at golf course plan

[JUNE 28, 2001]  The Airport Committee of the Logan County Board will be looking at plans for a nine-hole golf course on property by the airport, probably at the committee’s next meeting on Monday, July 2, according to County Board Chairman Dick Logan.

The drawings will be supplied by a Colorado firm which contacted the board and offered to send them drawings if the board sent an aerial photograph of the airport property, Logan said. The "Executive Course" would be a par 3 with nine holes, would take up only 12 acres of the 28-acre site, and would not interfere with the operation of the present airport, he added. He said if the golf course were built, the board would probably lease it out or hire a management firm.

"We got a letter and had a phone conversation with the Colorado company," Logan said. "If we do build the golf course, they would hope to put in a bid, but we are under no obligation to them."

Police get grant for children’s
program on violence prevention

[JUNE 28, 2001]  Lincoln’s police department has just been awarded another grant, this one $28,900, to continue work on violence prevention with kindergarten through fourth graders.

At the Lincoln City Council meeting on June 26, Police Chief Richard Montcalm announced the approval of the grant by the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority. Montcalm, formerly in the position of community police officer, created the unique program for kindergarten through fourth grades. He said most such programs do not begin until sixth grade.

The program reaches all elementary schools in District 27, West Lincoln-Broadwell, Chester-East Lincoln and Carroll Catholic schools. The department has had funding for the program for the past 3½ years, but last year was the first time fourth-grade classes were added.

Every kindergarten class gets a 3½-hour lesson that deals with good and bad feelings and having disagreements in a positive way. First-grade classes deal with conflicts and how to settle them.

Second-grade sessions emphasize the bully problem, which often surfaces at that age. Third-graders learn cooperation and working in pairs, and fourth-graders build on the cooperation process and on conflict resolution.

The police department also works with the YMCA at seven locations after school and assists with summer camp, giving two violence prevention lessons each week of camp.



[to top of second column in this article]

Montcalm is also working on a manual that will become a model for other programs in the state, so that police departments in other cities can utilize the program.

Last year, Montcalm had an article about the program published in the Community Police and Exchange Newsletter, which reached about 70,000 police departments and schools in the state.

He said that after the article appeared he had many inquiries about the program, some from as far away as New York, California and Florida. He said he would also soon have a website for the program.

Along with his new duties as police chief, Montcalm still teaches the violence prevention classes, with the help of Officer Bob Rawlins. He also teaches classes on police and law enforcement issues at Lincoln College and is working on a master’s degree in law enforcement and justice administration at Western Illinois University in Macomb.

Safe Ride taxi company has new owner

[JUNE 27, 2001]  Safe Ride, the Lincoln area’s only taxi service, is now under new ownership, but for the immediate future riders will see no change. However, a 50-cent fare hike may be coming soon.

The Lincoln City Council granted the license to operate a taxi business to new owner Gary Donley and terminated the license of former owner Kevin Sampson at a meeting Tuesday evening. Donley has been managing the company for the last year and a half.

Noting that the company has been in operation for seven years without an increase in rates, Donley said he would like to increase fares for the four zones to $3, $3.25, $3.75 and $4. Increases would not apply to senior citizens or the handicapped. He said the rising price of gasoline and the difficulty in getting good drivers is the reason for the increase.

The council did not grant the increase, or even discuss the matter, because that request must first be heard by the city’s ordinance committee.

Bill Bates, sitting in for City Attorney Jonathan Wright, told the council that Donley has insurance coverage of $250,000 per passenger for personal injury or death and $500,000 for property damage, meeting requirements of the secretary of state’s office.

Because the city code requires that the taxi service must be needed, Donley cited the many senior citizens and children going to school who use it, as well as the deliveries of prescription drugs made from pharmacies both in and out of town to Lincoln area residents.

Alderman Joseph Stone asked Donley if the company would continue to use former state police cars and if Donley planned to improve the quality of the vehicles. Donley said he intended to continue to buy state police cars at auction because the company could not afford to purchase new ones.

Stone also asked if Donley intended to improve the appearance of his drivers. "The drivers now look extremely casual, with jeans and even cut-off jeans. They don’t present a professional appearance," Stone said.

Donley replied that he was putting a dress code into effect similar to the one used in Springfield. He described it as a "pretty standard" dress code.

Because Sampson’s license has already expired, the council, acting as the Public Vehicle Licensing Board, approved the license to take effect immediately.

The company presently operates two taxis, with hours on Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 5:30 a.m. until 3 a.m.

IDOT request

In other business, the council decided not to take any action on a request from Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) that the city take over Fifth Street, Logan Street, North Kickapoo, and service lanes of Postville Drive and Feldman Drive.

"IDOT is trying to rid themselves of unmarked routes," Street Superintendent Donnie Osborne told the council. I’m not sure it would be in the city’s interest to consider that." If the city takes over the streets, it will be responsible for all maintenance.

Alderman George Mitchell, chairman of the streets and alleys committee, noted that he had seen "little tiny stress cracks" on Fifth Street.

"If it becomes our baby, then we’re going to have to take care of it. We want to think about the obligation it lets the city in for."

Council members decided not to consider taking over the streets at this time. "The option is always going to be there if we want it," Osborne said.




[to top of second column in this article]

 Bids opened

Bids for a 2001 skid loader for the street department were opened. Bobcat of Springfield gave a final bid of $15,789 plus freight; Central Illinois Ag at Atlanta bid $16,479; McCann Industries of Springfield bid $22,510; Martin Equipment Corporation of Springfield bid $20,125; Cross Brothers of Mount Pulaski bid $21,000. The council will consider the bids at its next regular meeting July 2.


The council also heard a complaint that the hours of the animal control operation are not convenient and that telephone calls go unanswered. This complaint was referred to Logan County Board member Clifford Sullivan, in charge of the animal control division.

Vehicles parked downtown overnight

Another problem brought up Tuesday evening was the inability of the street department to clean downtown streets and remove snow because of parked vehicles. In spite of signs saying no parking from 2 to 5 a.m., some cars are always parked downtown, Osborne said.

"Some cars are in the same place every night. Some spaces have not been swept for years," he told the council. "It gets worse in the winter. We have complaints about snow not removed. They [car owners] would rather pay a $3 fine and have a parking place. The only way I know is to add towing costs."

Police Chief Rich Montcalm said that some cars have been ticketed every night, but owners continue to pay the fines and park in the streets.

Alderman Verl Prather, chairman of the police committee, said the only way to solve the problem is to make the downtown parking area a tow-away zone and charge for towing. The police committee will discuss the matter.

Individual requests from public

A request for signs on Oscar Street was also discussed. The petitioner has asked for "Slow, Children Playing" signs and for speed limit signs. Osborne said he believed the "Children Playing" signs would indicate the city condones children playing the streets. He said while some such signs remain in the city, the city is not putting up any new ones. He did recommended a speed limit sign of 20 miles per hour.

Council members also heard requests for curb cuts, sidewalk repair and taking down a sweet gum tree. Those requests will go to the council at the regular meeting July 2.

Other meetings

Mayor Beth Davis announced that the ordinance and zoning committee will meet at 6 p.m. July 2 to "revisit the ordinance and see what is required for a subdivision." Davis has said she would like to continue discussions with developer Rodney White about the proposed East Park subdivision on Sherman Street.

Plans for the subdivision stalled last week when the council approved White’s plat only on condition he pay half the cost of upgrading Sherman Street. White had asked the city to upgrade the street, at city expense, sometime in the future.

Davis also announced a public hearing on the appropriations ordinance on July 10 at 7 p.m.

The council adjourned to executive session to discuss compensation for the city’s assistant fire chiefs and well as a replacement for City Attorney Wright, who has been named to fill the unexpired term of state representative vacated by John Turner.

$10,000 grant will help restore old well

[JUNE 27, 2001]  Main Street Lincoln, the organization dedicated to revitalizing downtown Lincoln, will be getting some financial help from the state, according to Sen. Bob Madigan.

"I’m pleased to announce that Main Street Lincoln will receive a $10,000 state grant from the Department of Commerce and Community Affairs," said Madigan, R-Lincoln. "The money will be used to restore an old public drinking-water well from the days of Abraham Lincoln."

The well, now covered up, is located on the current site of VFW Post 1756, formerly Deskin’s Tavern, a place where Lincoln stayed on his travels throughout central Illinois as a lawyer.

Wendy Bell, program manager for Main Street Lincoln, said the $10,000 grant will be put to good use.

"The plans are to completely restore the old water well and make it part of the town’s official Lincoln sites," said Bell. "Restoration will once again make the well usable, and there are a number of ideas for promotion, including making the well a public drinking fountain … [and] bottling the water for sale, with a label depicting Mr. Lincoln."

The city of Lincoln is one of many Illinois communities participating in the national Main Street program, which was begun in 1980 to help communities revitalize their historic or traditional commercial areas.

Motorists breathe easier
as pump prices drop

[JUNE 26, 2001]  It really isn’t news, but you have probably noticed that gasoline prices continue to plunge lower and lower. The average price at the pump in Illinois right now is reported at $1.65. Area stations are posting a price of $1.49 for their base grade this morning. Over the weekend prices dipped as low as $1.34 in Bloomington in a regional gasoline price war.

The word in the gasoline industry is that we should expect prices to continue in a temporary downward trend. The Lundberg Letter, a petroleum industry newsletter, confirms this information from a variety of sources but reserves judgment on how low prices should be expected to go or how long they will remain low.

Industry insiders have stated that the price increases we experienced this spring were not intentional attempts to maneuver the gasoline market and make more profits but were rather the result of extremely low inventories and poor planning for increased demand at the refineries. The result, however, was higher profits for refiners and suppliers.


[to top of second column in this article]

Although the price increases were not intentional, insiders say that the refineries have learned an important lesson: They have more power than they previously had imagined. There is little competition at the supplier level because supplies are tight. All the refiners now have access to the same information, courtesy of satellite and Internet information sources. When one refiner decides to raise prices, the other refiners will follow suit and also raise prices. The result will probably be an unstable gasoline market for the foreseeable future.

So, for now, take advantage of lower prices. And let area fuel-station managers know that you appreciate the opportunity to save a little money.


Panel studying retired teacher
insurance program has first hearing

[JUNE 26, 2001]  The special Senate committee on the Teachers Retirement Insurance Program had its first meeting Thursday. The session dealt specifically with the financial health of the program, according to Sen. Bob Madigan, committee chairman.

"The Segal Company, which was hired to assess the financial health of TRIP, presented us with an abundant amount of information," said Madigan, R-Lincoln. "The information, including possible suggestions for addressing the financial problems facing TRIP, will be very helpful to the committee in crafting workable solutions."

Retirees under the Teachers Retirement Insurance Program face the potential for a large premium increase in order to keep the program solvent. An originally projected increase of 45 percent was recently lowered by the governor to 21 percent.

Madigan says the testimony at the first hearing clearly shows a very difficult and complex decision awaits the legislature and state government.

"When we look at the short-term solution that’s facing us now and coming up with a solution to be considered during the veto session, this committee needs to determine how best to reach that short-term solution," said Madigan. "We must determine whether our long-term goals for TRIP can be met while also addressing the short-term problem, or whether we make the short-term decision easier to reach now with an eye toward a long-term decision."

Madigan said the work the committee will do over the summer is very important to 40,000 people enrolled in TRIP now and to the thousands of retired teachers who will come into the program in the years ahead.

According to Segal’s Mitch Bramstaedt, using current data available, the 21 percent or even the 45 percent increase is not enough to save the program unless specific steps are taken.

"We calculate an increase of 54.2 percent would be required," said Bramstaedt. "However, if we were to blend in managed health plan costs, we find the increase would only be 44.8 percent.



[to top of second column in this article]

Bramstaedt also noted that the current method for estimating the state’s matching contribution to the program has consistently underestimated the match. He also said the current funding approach, which is a pay-as-you-go method, is inadequate because the population of retired teachers continues to grow and mature and the number of retirees needing medical care continues to exceed payroll increases paid by active teachers.

Steve Cyboran, also of the Segal Company, told panelists that a long-term funding mechanism that properly pays for the benefits over the working life of active teachers is needed; otherwise, TRIP will continue to face financial problems in the future.

"Medical costs are likely to continue outpacing payroll contributions made by active teachers, which is the main basis for the funding revenue," said Cyboran.

The next meeting of the special Senate committee on the Teachers Retirement Insurance Program has been tentatively set for July 26. The location has not been determined.

Members of the committee include Chairman Madigan; Republican Sens. Stan Weaver, R-Urbana, Tom Walsh, R-LaGrange Park, and Dave Syverson, R-Rockford; and Democratic Sens. Vince Demuzio, D-Carlinville, Denny Jacobs, D-Moline, Ricky Hendon, D-Chicago, and James Clayborne, D-East St. Louis. Other committee members include representatives of the Illinois Retired Teachers Association, the Illinois Education Association, the Illinois Federation of Teachers, the Illinois Association of School Boards, the Illinois Association of School Administrators and the director of the Illinois Department of Central Management Services.

The committee is directed to report its recommendations to the Senate no later than Nov. 1. The fall veto session begins Nov. 7.

Looking for Lincoln nears
decision on video production

[JUNE 25, 2001]  A decision on the video production of Looking for Lincoln will be made Wednesday, June 27, according to Paul Beaver, committee chairman. A final meeting of the committee will determine which company will complete the documentary.

The committee has presented to the production companies the information requested to be included in the documentary. The planners feel they have many photographs, local people and stories of incidents that will make an interesting historical panorama. The video will include scenes of the Middletown Stage Coach Inn, conversation with Mr. Lincoln and John D. Gillett in Elkhart, a courtroom scene in Mount Pulaski and pictures by Lloyd Ostendorf, as well as other photographs and paintings which will convey everyday scenes and events in the life of Abraham Lincoln in Logan County. Local residents who have any historical photographs or paintings of Abraham Lincoln are asked to contact Paul Beaver.

Shirley Bartelmay reported that during the month of May over 200 visitors stopped at the Postville Courthouse to discover the history of Abraham Lincoln's work as a circuit lawyer in Logan County. She said that 123 visitors came individually and 96 school children arrived in three separate groups.

 The site is looking for more volunteers, as occasionally some of the present volunteers go on vacation or have other necessities arise. The training is entertaining and interesting. The 47 current volunteers include schoolteachers and many senior citizens. Richard Schachtsiek, site manager, is present at the courthouse every Friday and Saturday. Volunteers may contact him there and also have a chance to see the courthouse if they have not visited in the past.


[to top of second column in this article]

The Lincoln College Museum has also shown an increase in attendance due to the Looking for Lincoln activities. Museum curator Ron Keller reported that attendance and sales have increased. Over 400 people visited the museum from mid-April to mid-May. A woman from York, England, and a group from Virginia visited recently, as well as many other tourists.

Larry Steffens, chairman of the Lincoln Statue Committee, reported that a short video has been made to provide information to the public regarding the proposed living history theme park, including wagon rides, split rail fences, 1850 manned and working mills and barns. The videos have been distributed for public viewing at the following businesses: Wal-Mart, Bonanza, IGA, Kroger, video stores, Lincoln Public Library, City Hall, Franz Express and others.

Lincoln statue plans are progressing

[JUNE 25, 2001]  Community leaders here are continuing to bring the construction of a 305-foot statue of Lincoln artist Lloyd Ostendorf’s depiction of Abraham Lincoln closer to reality. Videotapes explaining their plans and answering the many questions that residents of this historical city have posed are being shown throughout the area. The videos have been distributed for public viewing at the following businesses: Wal-Mart, Bonanza, IGA, Kroger, video stores, Lincoln Public Library, City Hall, Franz Express and others.

Committee members feel that educating the residents of the city as to the benefits to be derived from this project is an important first step in securing the support of the entire community for honoring the city’s connection to Mr. Lincoln.

Mayor Beth Davis and the Lincoln City Council overwhelmingly back the project and believe that the increased popularity of the city of Lincoln as a national tourist destination could answer many of the area’s economic woes.

One of the prime concerns of the committee is to maintain control of the project and constantly work to make the statue and the adjacent theme park area a family-oriented destination that will honor and display the values and ideals for which Abraham Lincoln was famous.

The theme areas at the park could encompass the statue as the centerpiece, with outdoor theatre, IMAX theatre, art gallery and animatronic displays of Lincoln’s famous moments in history.


[to top of second column in this article]

Other areas could be dedicated to an early 1800s working farmstead, an area for period arts and crafts with costumed workers lending authenticity to the attractions, a water park which would be a summer attraction, and many more.

The next committee meeting, for voting members only, will be at 7 p.m. June 26 at the Union Planters Bank. This session will work on the prioritizing of the proposed sites for the park in conjunction with the city’s managers and engineers.

The statue committee is actively seeking endorsements from all of the area’s civic groups and will be glad to make presentations of the project upon request. Larry Steffens says that many of the little issues have been resolved following the original presentation of the project, and a new PowerPoint presentation has been prepared. You can contact Larry Steffens at 732-6102 to schedule a presentation.
