The All-Conference team was announced for the South Central Eastern Division football conference.  And it's no surprise the team was full of Comets.  Josh Tebbe was selected as the team's quarterback, Nick Koonce and Michael Bradley at running back.  Erik Fohne was selected at wide receiver.  Jim Dierkes and Jim Romack were selected for the offensive line.  And Bill Amos received an honorable mention at tight end. 

 

On defense, Jim Dierkes and Ethan Willman were selected for defensive line.  Michael Bradley was selected at linebacker.  Erik Fohne and Josh Tebbe were selected at defensive back.  In all 12 spots on the all-conference team were filled with Comets, and many Comets were unanimous selections, as voted on by the coaches in the conference.


GBPA TO SPONSOR TROLLEY RIDES WITH SANTA THIS FRIDAY

 

The Greenville Business and Professional Association, along with National Bank, is sponsoring trolley rides, this Friday, with Santa and Mrs. Claus.  From 5:30PM to 8PM you can come board the trolley at Cheri's Garden Room, on the north side of the Greenville Square, and enjoy a ride with Santa.  There will be free cookies and hot cocoa to keep you warm. 

 

Again it's a great chance to bring the kids out and have them tell Santa all of their Christmas wishes, this Friday on the north side of the Greenville Square.


SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGERS IN FULL FORCE THIS SEASON

 

It's that time of year again.  Christmas is just over a month away.  WGEL spoke with Reverend Wayne Pierce about the volunteers who are ringing bells this year for the Salvation Army, starting at Capri IGA in Greenville. They will continue each weekend through December 22nd.

 

The Salvation Army helps dozens of families in the local area every year during the Holiday season. Pierce also said that on December 8th, Capri IGA will match any money given at the store that day. If you're interested in volunteering for the Salvation Army bell ringers, contact Reverend Wayne Pierce at 780-1140.

PICK-UP TRUCK FIRE TUESDAY

 

Pocahontas - Old Ripley Firemen were called Tuesday evening, at 5:10 PM, to a report of a pick-up truck on fire, at a residence on Sugarloaf Road.  According to Fire Chief Kendall Brink, the owner noticed a discoloration of the truck windows and when he opened the door to investigate, the truck burst into flames.  He was able to push the truck out of his garage with a tractor, thus saving the garage. Upon arrival, firemen extinguished the blaze, but the truck was a total loss.  Firemen were on the scene for about half an hour.


OFFICES CLOSED FOR THANKSGIVING

 

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday the following offices will be closed Thursday (today): all local banks, the Greenville Post Office, and the Greenville Public Library.  They will re-open Friday with regular business hours.

 

In addition, the Bond County Courthouse and offices, along with the Health Department, City of Greenville offices, Unit 1 and Unit 2 School Districts and the Secretary of State's Office in Greenville will be closed both Thursday (today) and Friday for the Thanksgiving Holiday.


SAFETY BELT ENFORCEMENT OVER THANKSGIVING

 

Be sure to wear your seatbelt, while traveling, this Thanksgiving holiday.  Safety belt usage will not only help save your life, but it will also help you avoid getting a ticket from police officers, who will be enforcing a “zero-tolerance” method for drivers who fail to buckle up during the upcoming holiday. 

 

The “Click It or Ticket” mobilization will include officers setting up numerous day and night enforcement zones across Illinois.  “Click It or Ticket” in conjunction with the Thanksgiving Accident Reduction Effort, is currently running, and will continue till Sunday, December 2nd.  Thousands of details focusing on speed reduction, safety belt enforcement, impaired and underage drinking will be conducted.

 

The Illinois State Police will also be enforcing the “Stay Alive on the I’s” initiative is also currently running and will conclude on Sunday, November 25th with a detail from 10am to 8pm.  Troopers will be placed every 10 miles on all interstates.  During last year’s five-day Thanksgiving weekend, there were 17 fatal crashes resulting in 20 fatalities.  This year police agencies throughout the state will be joining together to try and save lives.
