FIRST H1N1 FLU RELATED DEATH IN ILLINOIS

 

A Chicago-area resident has died from complications related to H1N1 flu.  According to Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. Damon T. Arnold, this is the first death linked to this novel flu virus in Illinois.  Dr. Arnold reminds you, especially if you have chronic medical conditions, to continue taking steps to avoid getting the flu.  You should properly wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and contain your germs by staying home if you are sick.  H1N1 symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue, and possibly diarrhea and vomiting.  Get immediate medical care if you experience these symptoms.


 

NEW LOOK FOR GREENVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT

 

The Greenville Police Department is receiving a facelift.  Due to new flooring, wall paint and cabinets, the department offices are taking on a new look.  Chief Low Lorton said new flooring has been installed in the squad room, sergeant's office, and kitchen.  The kitchen area has been expanded, giving a little more space in the break room.  Some new kitchen cabinets have been installed and wall cabinets are to be hung in the squad room as well.  All furniture had to be removed from these areas to facilitate the installation of the new floor and officers are getting by with just a couple of desks until work is finished.  City workers are doing most of the remodeling.

HIGH SPEED TRAINS BETWEEN CHICAGO AND ST. LOUIS

 

With billions of dollars from Washington now available for high speed rail, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and other state lawmakers want to connect Chicago and St. Louis with high speed rail service. The state still needs to find between 400 and 750 million dollars to add to the new statewide construction plan which has already passed the General Assembly. A vote is expected next week on a plan now priced at 1.5 billion dollars. The full building plan is now at 26 billion dollars. Tax hikes, new driving fees and video poker is how lawmakers foresee paying for these plans. The high speed rail link from Chicago to St. Louis is the first leg of what the Governor hopes will be an entire midwest high speed rail system.
