MULBERRY GROVE VILLAGE BOARD MEMBER RESIGNS

 

At the recent Mulberry Grove Village Board meeting, member Karen Belcher resigned from the board effective October 6, for personal reasons.  Board Chairman Doug Enloe is expected to bring names of prospective appointees to the November meeting. An increase in village employee's health insurance premiums prompted a lengthy discussion.  The board agreed to pay half of the increase with employees paying the remaining half. The police committee recommended David Dunn for the position of part-time police officer for the village.  The board approved the recommendation effective immediately. Halloween trick-or-treat hours have been set for Saturday, October 31 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.  Children 12 years old and younger may trick-or-treat in Mulberry Grove. The next meeting is scheduled for November 9 at 7:00 p.m.

HARVEST STUCK IN THE MUD

 

Continued cooler temperatures and above average rainfall have slowed an already sluggish harvest. The Illinois Ag Statistics Service says a weekend frost occurred in some parts of the state. As of October 14, fifty-six percent of the corn crop was reported as mature, while the five year average for this time of year is 97 percent. Corn harvest had reached only six percent. Soybeans were 84 percent dropping leaves, compared to a five year average of 97 percent. Only ten percent of the soybean crop was reported as harvested.
