SENIOR CENTER NEEDS VOLUNTEERS FOR MEALS ON WHEELS

The Bond County Senior Center provides many services to citizens in the surrounding area.  Anna Oestreich said the senior center is looking for volunteers to deliver Meals-on-Wheels. In Greenville, they deliver every day but in some towns, due to the lack of volunteers, they are only able to go three days a week.  More volunteers would spread the responsibility over a larger number of people and they could increase the number of deliveries. For some people, the contact with the volunteers is their only outside interaction and daily contact is very important.  If you would like to help or would like more information, call the Bond County Senior Center at 664-1465.

BRIDGE ON ROUTE 143 UNDER CONSTRUCTION

A bridge, on Route 143 just outside Millersburg, has been reduced to one lane traffic due to construction.  IDOT’s Tim Krumm told WGEL they are doing some structural steel and concrete repairs to the bridge to address problems which accumulated over the years but which were just recently discovered during inspection.  Repairs are moving along quickly and there have not been any major weather delays thus far. They hope to be finished within the next couple of months.

WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR

Carbon monoxide is the number one cause of accidental deaths in the United States, claiming approximately 300 lives a year.  The State Fire Marshal reminds you to pay attention to the distinct types of signals your carbon monoxide alarms make.  Often times, when your carbon monoxide detector beeps, you may assume it is time for a battery change, when in reality it could mean the device needs to be replaced.  Carbon monoxide alarms manufactured before August 2009 may not have the end-of-life feature and all carbon monoxide alarms should be tested every month.  For additional information about carbon monoxide poisoning, visit www.sfm.illinois.gov
