INTERSCHOLASTIC COMMITTEE MEETING OF UNIT 2

 

The Bond County Community Unit 2 school district interscholastic committee held a special meeting Friday morning.  The topic of including Pocahontas and Sorento students on the Greenville Junior High boys baseball team and boys and girls junior high track teams was discussed.  Some years ago, Pocahontas and Sorento both dropped their boys baseball team do to lack of student turn out and the inability to field a full team.  Although the interscholastic committee can not make any decisions on this matter, they are going to recommend to the full school board that Pocahontas and Sorento students be given the opportunity to play on the Greenville team.  A full merger of the track teams is also possible.

60 DAY MORATORIUM ON INSURANCE POLICY CANCELLATIONS

 

Governor Blagojevich has directed the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to impose a 60-day moratorium on the cancellation of insurance policies, due to late payment by policyholders living in counties impacted by recent storms and flooding, which have been declared disaster areas.  The moratorium is effective immediately and retroactive to June 10th.  Health insurance companies are also directed to be lenient if patients must use "out of network" providers, due to disruption in health care services.  For more information, call 866-445-5364.
