BOND COUNTY UNIT 2 SPECIAL BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING

 

At the Bond County Unit 2 Special Board of Education meeting Friday afternoon, four of seven board members were present to just make a quorum. A hearing on bids for vehicle fleet maintenance was held, followed by a discussion and explanation on these bids. Superintendent Melanie Allyn explained that long-time school mechanic Denny Shaw was retiring and that it would be cheaper to have a contractor take care of the school vehicles rather than hire a new mechanic. The board voted in favor of having Ponder Equipment maintain the full size buses and Z-1 Automotive maintain all other smaller vehicles. Assistant Superintendent Jeff Strieker presented recommendations from the Building and Grounds Committee meeting Wednesday. The committee recommended to replace the Greenville High School cafeteria roof for just over $18,000, resurface the tennis courts for $8,000, treat the athletic field for $4,720 and oil and chip three parking lots for $8,200. Work on these projects will be done this summer. The board accepted the resignations of Anne Langham as the assistant volleyball coach at the high school and Melinda Heuser as a kindergarten teacher. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 22.


ILLINOIS SENATE OKAYS MEDICAL MARIJUANA

 

Illinois lawmakers have given a very tentative okay to medical marijuana.  The Illinois Senate narrowly approved a plan to let some very sick people have as many as three plants in their home, and use the drug without fear of breaking the law.  Metro East Senator Bill Haine guided the plan through a tenuous debate and assured lawmakers that he is not taking the first step toward general legalization.  However, some Republicans remain unconvinced.

TICK SEASON IS HERE

 

Illinois State Public Health Director Dr. Damon T. Arnold warns you that we are now into tick season and you should take precautions against tick bites. Ticks are most active now through June and they can transmit diseases such as Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and others. If left untreated, some of these diseases may be fatal. To protect yourself against tick bites, always check your clothing for ticks climbing for open skin, wear white or light colored long sleeved shirts and long pants. Tuck long pants into your socks or boots and apply insect repellent containing DEET. Ticks usually are found ankle to shin high on a person's body. Don't forget to also check your pets for ticks.
