DETAILS RELEASED ON ACCIDENT IN CLINTON COUNTY

The Clinton County Sheriff's department has released details regarding an accident that occurred last Saturday evening. Authorities were alerted by a 911 call received around 11 pm from a resident who reported that a car had rolled over in a field by her home.

According to the police report, Kiristia Allen, of Carlyle, was traveling northbound on St. Rt 127 when she lost control of her car, possibly due to a deflated tire. Her car then crossed the center line, hit the west guardrail, overcorrected, crossed the center line again, struck the east ditch embankment and overturned. The vehicle continued in a northeast direction and came to rest on its wheels.

Kiristia was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Breese, where she was treated for her injuries and released..

The artwork was displayed in a gallery style setup, with pieces from all grade levels at the Greenville Elementary and Jr. High Schools under the directions of art teachers Signe Matute and Joanne Wagner.

On Thursday night, Kim Lugge and her music students from GES provided entertainment for the event. On Friday, Mikayla Roach and D.B. Railroad entertained the public on a stage outside the community building. Our Common Ground President Martha Radcliff commented that even though the entertainment was moved inside Thursday night, due to the threat of rain, there was a huge turnout for the event both nights.


THE PLANNING COMMISSION APPROVES CODE REVISION

In Monday nights Planning Commission Meeting a change in the R-2 Zoning code was approved. The board voted unanimously to add a special use for a bed and breakfast to R-2 or multi-family residential zoning.

In an earlier city council meeting City Manager Dave Willey, had mentioned that individuals were interested in purchasing property at the corner of Locust Street and Main Avenue and wanted to put a bed and breakfast in the home. Current zoning would not allow that use at that location.

The recommendation will now have to go before the Greenville City Council for approval..

BOND COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY OPEN HOUSE HUGE SUCCESS

Many people stopped in last Sunday at the open house for the new Adoption Center, Office, and Cat Shelter of the Bond County Humane Society. The shelter is located in the old Bond County Highway Maintenance Department on S. Fourth Street, but the interior of the building has been totally renovated. Up stairs is an office, and a kitten room. A trip to the basement reveals an adult cat area capable of holding 30 cats, complete with plenty of space for play and toys. A washer and dryer is also in the basement.

Adult Cat Area

People that visited Sunday had a chance to meet different shelter animals including Ben, a Alaskan Malamute, Lab mix. Ben came from the Bond County pound, where he had escaped several times. An extremely gentle dog, Ben is not available for adoption, but is receiving training to become a therapy dog. The goal is to have Ben enrich lives of people in nursing homes and hospitals. He represents just one of the stories of animals rescued.
