CAVALETTO TO RUN IN NEW 107TH DISTRICT

Republican State Representative John Cavaletto was in Greenville recently.  He said due to redistricting, he and Republican State Representative Ron Stephens now both reside in the new 107th district which includes the city of Effingham on the east, Fayette and Bond Counties, and St. Rose in Clinton County.  Cavaletto recently announced he will be running for re-election in the new 107th District.  He believes the populace in the old and new districts is very similar in principles of family, schools, and churches and most of the area is farming communities.  Cavaletto said he looks forward to serving the people in Bond County if elected.  Petitions to get on the ballot will begin circulating in August 2012 with the election in November.  


TRANSCRIPT COMING FROM SPECIAL BOND COUNTY BOARD MEETING

The Bond County Board meet Tuesday night at the courthouse.  During the meeting, Board Chairman Brock Willeford said a transcription will be made of last Monday night’s special board meeting where the new county board district maps were voted on.  According to Bond County Clerk Randy Reitz, a freedom of information act request for a transcription of the meeting had been filed.  The cost of that transcription will not be paid by the county but by the person making the request.  After the transcription arrives it will be available at the clerk’s office. 

The board approved the setting up of legal self-help kiosks at the courthouse and at the Greenville Public Library.  Circuit Clerk Rex Catron presented the idea of setting up two computers that would allow the user to access self-help and how-to legal advice.  Catron told the board a grant would pay for the total cost of setting up the computers and for the hardware needed and there would be no cost to the county.  One computer will be in the hallway at the courthouse and a laptop will be available at the Greenville Public Library. Both will be free to use and allow access to specific legal advice websites and information.

WARM WET WEATHER MAY CAUSE MOLD IN HOMES

The Bond County Health Department warns of the possibility of mold growing in your home due to the recent warm, wet weather.  Molds produce allergens and irritants that may cause allergic reactions.  To prevent excess moisture, fix plumbing, flashing and roof leaks, cover dirt in crawlspaces with plastic and ventilate the crawlspace, install and use exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom, avoid using humidifiers, use air conditioners or dehumidifiers to control moisture, prevent water from entering basements, and clean and maintain gutters.  To clean up moldy areas after moisture problems have been addressed, wear rubber gloves, goggles, and a respirator mask.  Tightly cover air return vents, turn on exhaust fans, open windows, and work short time spans.  Discard moldy fabrics and items with porous surfaces which might not be cleanable.  For more information, call the Bond County Health Department at 664-1442.
