Ford County Lincoln Day Dinner features Topinka

Ford County held its first Republican Lincoln Day Dinner in about 15 years last (Thur) night. And Party Chairman Tom Bennett is hoping the event will spark some interest and get more people interested in the political process.

The Lincoln Day Dinner in Gibson City featured State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. She talked about how she’d like to see more women and more diversity in the party.

Topinka said the state’s budget problems will be difficult to fix. She told about 200 attendees “this didn’t happen overnight, and it’s not gonna be solved overnight.”

Topinka said the message is “it’s essential to elect candidates who can solve the financial problems.”

NICOR: No need to worry about gas smell

The smell of natural gas permeated the air throughout much of Iroquois County this (Mon) afternoon. But NICOR reports there’s no immediate safety concern to worry about.

The smell of gas is the result of NICOR work crews transferring the odorant into their lines. The odorant is the smell that’s added to the gas lines so that leaks are detected. During the transfer process today, some of the odorant got away from the workers and the winds carried the smell through Gilman, Crescent City, Watseka and across to Sheldon.

There is no danger to the public. Work crews are managing the situation.

County Regional planning commission will be disbanded

It’s been two years since the Iroquois County regional planning board has had a meeting and almost all of its members terms have expired. Those are a couple of reasons the board will be disbanded. The commission was formed to help with zoning issues and was supposed to meet monthly. The commission has now outlived its usefulness since its formation, because zoning issues are now initially fielded by the zoning board of appeals and there is no need for commissioners who represent different areas of the county.

IMH Go Red Luncheon 2013

A packed crowd donned in red filled celebrations in Watseka Friday for the 2013 IMH Go Red Luncheon (an annual event to fight against heart disease and to promote heart health). Health Screenings were available to participants and during lunch, industry expert and Life Coach, Mary Quinn spoke about identifying and managing stress. She said, “The First step to anything is to understand what it is. And if you can look at stress as energy, again positively, it can push you to motivate you to get things done. It’s when the psychological effects happen such as tension and becoming irritated, that stress becomes too much, which can turn into more the physical problems such as headaches and ulcers. So it’s being preventive. Measuring it. Finding out what it is and taking care of it. And the biggest thing to do is listen to your body. And as we talked about, getting the energy out, with exercise, journaling, and venting the negative energy so you can feel better.”

IMH’s RN Marsha Hubert also spoke about symptoms of a Heart Attack and there was a question and answer session with a panel of IMH Medical professionals.
