CARBON MONOXIDE LEAVES ONE DEAD, ANOTHER HOSPITALIZED

Officials say carbon monoxide is to blame the death of a Southern Illinois man, and the hospitalization of his son.  Fifty-six-year-old Galen Underhill of Collinsville died in his camper while on a hunting trip near Alhambra in Madison County over the weekend.  Family members found the two early Saturday morning.  Sean Underhill was taken to a St. Louis hospital and was last listed in serious condition.


AUDI SHERROD MOVING TO ANOTHER FCI FACILITY

 

Greenville Federal Correctional Institution Warden Audi Sherrod will be moving to another federal facility in Louisiana, and Audi had this to say. “I’ll be taking over a position as Complex Warden at the Federal Correctional Complex and United State Penitentiary in Alexandria, Louisiana. I go on the payroll at that location July 4. We expect an appointment to the Warden of Greenville position fairly soon. That appointment will be made initially as a member of the Senior Executive Service by the Attorney General’s office. We have great friends and great relationships in the area. My son will forever be a Comet, having graduated here. We have a lot of wonderful ties and memories in our life that tie back to Greenville. My wife and I would like to thank the community for the partnership that we have had here. This institution has always been well supported and the staff here appreciates the community so much. It’s just a great place to live and work and we could never say enough good things about Greenville and the community, and the staff here at FCI.”

FAMILY PLAN FOR STORMY WEATHER SEASON

 

Do you have a family plan if the weather turns dangerous? Disasters could strike without warning at any time of the day or night and with the storm season upon us, you need to prepare. A storm may leave you without electricity, gas, water or phone service. You may be separated from your children and loved ones when a disaster occurs. The University of Illinois Extension encourages families to be prepared and have a plan should this happen. Here are some questions for which answers should be planned. Where will you meet loved ones if your home is unavailable? Who should your children trust if they cannot get to you? Where do you go and what items should you bring with you in the event of an evacuation? These are important questions to have answered before something happens. For more information, contact the U of I office at 664-3665.
