PRE TRAIL ON KPD CITY OF GREENVILLE DISPUTE

 

The dispute between the city of Greenville and the Kingsbury Park district, over Dewey Street, continued in the form of a pre-trial last Friday.  According to Brock Williford, attorney for the KPD, it’s agreed that depositions for the trail will be completed within 30 days and the final pre-trail is scheduled to be held on July 16th.  A schedule beyond the July 16th date has not been set.   


FAIR BOARD MEETING FOR JUNE

 

The June meeting of the Bond County Fair Board was scheduled to be held this past Wednesday, but because the weather was favorable to plant corn, only 4 members were present and that was not a quorum, so the meeting was not held.

 

Board member Jerry Mollett conducted an informal meeting and answered questions concerning the location of the Vietnam Wall on the fairgrounds and plans for parking.  It was reported the there are now 7 queen contestants for the 2008 Bond County Fair and 21 Little Misses and more contestants still may be added.  The 2008 Bond County Fair books are being distributed by fair secretary Judy Debatin.

 

There is a need for repairs on the community building and the north rest rooms, and some of the tin roofing on barns needs to be re-nailed, as some has been blown off.  There are some ruts that need to be filled and seeded.

 

The next Bond County Fair Board meeting will be Wednesday, July 9th and it is only 48 days until the time for the 2008 Bond County Fair.

TEMPORARY HALT ON OPERATION OF YO-YO RIDES LIFTED

 

The Illinois Department of Labor has recently announced the authorization to resume operation of three Yo-Yo amusement rides, on which the department had previously issued temporary halts of operations. State amusement ride inspectors have determined that the rides are in compliance with manufacturer and industry safety standards. The temporary halt on operations was issued after reports of a Yo-Yo amusement ride, manufactured by Chance Ride Manufacturing Inc., which has rides registered in Illinois, collapsed while in operation in California. More Yo-Yo rides are scheduled for inspection and the updated results will be posted on the department’s website at www.state.il.us/agency/idol.
