help children in emergencies
Healthy Families Task Force would like to thank the people of
Lincoln for their support of the "Safe Stop" program. A
"Safe Stop" is a home or business where a young person
may receive emergency assistance when a family member is not
available. A "Safe Stop" emblem is posted in a window or
door where it can easily be seen. The Lincoln Police Department
screens all applicants as well as provides the educational
connection in the schools.
currently have 15 "Safe Stops" located in our community.
Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, CEFCU, Jenkins Insurance,
Lincoln Christian Church, MKS Jewelers, Abe’s Carmelcorn Shoppe
and West Lincoln-Broadwell School are our non-residential
"Stops." The rest are located in residential homes
throughout Lincoln. We would like to request that parents look for
the red stop sign emblems in areas where their children walk, ride
bikes or play. Discuss the locations of these "Stops" in
your area and when they should be used.
is because of the volunteers and organizations who devote their
time, effort and dollars that Lincoln is a community many choose
as their home. It takes many committed people to run the agencies
and organizations that make Lincoln special. One person can make a
difference. We are still in need of more places to help. Become a
"Safe Stop!" Applications are available at the front
desk at Heartland Community College or by contacting Rich Montcalm
at the Lincoln Police Department.

to 84 "No").
the Mount Pulaski, Chestnut and Latham areas are not represented
on the county board, and we have not been for some time. Changing
the process of electing board members to districts would ensure
all areas of the county would have a representative in the future.
reasons for districts are:
Board members more in touch with constituents.
Running for election would be easier for potential candidates, as
you would campaign in a smaller area.
Qualified people in the outlying areas of the county would not be
discouraged from running because of overwhelming number of Lincoln
Less than 5 percent of all other counties in Illinois are elected
And most important, all 44 precincts in the county passed this
advisory referendum with a "Yes" vote — 3-to-1
you take an interest in local government, please contact the
county board members and let them know how you feel. Also, attend
the Logan County Board meeting at the courthouse on Tuesday, April
17, at 7 p.m. and watch the board make their decision on this
