KINGSBURY PARK DISTRICT MEETS WITH SKATEBOARDERS

  

Monday night the Park District held their final meeting with kids interested in helping design the new skateboard park. A representative from American Ramp Co. was on hand to go over the designs and add any special features that the kids had in mind. American Ramp CO. is the firm that the park district has decided to go ahead with and will be providing a ten percent match of any funds raised. The park will be 32 x 150 ft. and will be located either at JC Park or at the pool fields. The kids interested in helping raise donations will start to solicit funds this week through Feb 28th. If you are interested in helping with a donation, call the Kingsbury Park District Office for further information.

First, several people from the Civil War Re-enactment Group were present to show their plans for Civil War Re-enactment battles that will take place Saturday and Sunday at the 2009 Bond County Fair. They will hold these battles at the Quarter Midget Auto RaceTrack. The Board then approved the plans. There was an extensive discussion of the Tractor Pulling Contest with no decisions being made.

GREENVILLE LIQUOR LICENSE CATEGORIES

 

It is now legal to sell alcohol within the city limits of Greenville.  We spoke with Mayor Alan Gaffner who outlined the specified categories under which licenses may be issued.  There are six major categories for liquor licenses in Greenville.  They include package sales at service stations and convenience stores, grocery stores and supermarkets or retail stores, restaurants, banquet facilities, bowling alleys, and a special event license for organizations or non-profit groups for one-time events.  Applications for liquor licenses are available at the front desk of the Greenville City Hall.

VALENTINES FOR VETERANS

 

Again this year, Congressman John Shimkus is collecting valentines for distribution to veterans in the region.  "Last year we were overwhelmed by the show of support and collected thousands of valentines for soldiers and veterans," Shimkus said.  This year valentines will be collected at all of Shimkus' offices and distributed to veterans through local VA facilities during the second week of February.  Do not address valentines to a specific person and do not include any identifying information about yourself.
