Kids have a loving home at LDC
has been a lot of discussion about the possible closing of LDC. I
am a resident of Lincoln, don't work at LDC, but have worked at
JDC in Jacksonville, Ill., so am highly affected by what is going on.
What the governor is doing makes me so angry! I have kept my
opinions to myself, but what I saw on our local television station
last night (Thursday the 20th)... I had to get my 2 cents in.
Public Health and Governor Ryan have no feelings for anyone except
the ones who bow down to their feet. As far as I am concerned the
staff is just doing what God asks of us. To love and care for one
another. These individuals that have a possibility of losing their
home and the ones that have already been transferred are going to
be going into backward behavior. And by taking some to JDC I know
for a fact that they won't get the love, care and attention they
received at LDC. So to the parents: please monitor closely. If the
governor would take the time to spend a shift on each unit, go to
some annual reviews, just spend one on one time with these kids
then he would have a change of heart and read each of their
programs then he would see things differently. Get to know the
staff, parents, but most of all the kids whose HOME he is taking
technician of JDC
with the young people in your life about alcohol, tobacco and
have been the prevention specialist at Logan-Mason Mental Health
for the past 3Ĺ years. My job is to educate the youth of Logan
County on the hazards of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. In the
past few weeks there have been some devastating incidents in Logan
County. There was a marijuana incident at the middle school level;
there was an alcohol and a controlled substance incident at the
high school level; and many drinking and driving incidents. These
are just the few that I know about, and your kids are talking
about them. I hear it everyday in the schools that I go to.
I want to communicate with the residents of Logan County is that
educating our youth is not just one personís job. It is the job
of every parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or adult with a young
person in their life. As a result of these occurrences, this is
the ideal opportunity for you to discuss your feelings on drugs
with your child. I wish these things did not have to happen, but
they did. It happens every day, and it is our kids. We cannot use
the excuse "not my kid" anymore. Please talk with your
kids about this, because if they are not talking to you about it
they are talking with someone else about it. Make sure your kids
know your feelings on this issue.
you need help in getting the conversation started or information
for yourself, I have resources available. Please call me at
Logan-Mason Mental Health, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 5.
The phone number is (217) 735-2272.

behalf of the Logan County Arts Association I would like to take
this opportunity to thank all those folks who attended our
December classical guitar concert. This was a wonderful
opportunity to hear a classically trained artist perform works
that accentuate the season. A variety of classical and traditional
Christmas favorites echoed throughout the friendly confines. I
hope everyone enjoyed the performance.
would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to Christian
Culleton; the Trinity Episcopal Church; James Ransom, owner of
Miss Jessieís Gallery; members of the arts association; and
everyone who made this holiday concert a success.
is our fond hope to provide entertainment that will add diversity
to the offerings here in Logan County. Your thoughts and comments
on programming that you feel would accentuate our lives will
always be welcome.
thanks for supporting the arts.
H. Jacobs, President
County Arts Association
