Letter to the Editor
This is a follow up letter about the bald eagles in Christian county and around the area. I see my first letter about eagles was submitted right at three months ago.. I speculated then that the eagles just north of the Nokomis rock quarries were sitting on the nest and the chicks would hatch somewhere during the middle of March.

We are blessed by the generosity of our community! The Taylorville Food Pantry would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the grant awards received from the Duncan-Kendrick Ministry Fund of Taylorville First United Methodist Church, Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln, and Springfield Clinic SC Gives Grant. Because of their generosity, our new paved concrete parking lot poured on the east side of our building at 1429 E. Main Cross was made possible.

With the suspension of in-person instruction and the continuation of Remote Day Learning, our administrative team and teachers would like to thank you for your continued engagement and commitment to learning during this time period. We sincerely understand and recognize the extra effort put forth by our students, parents and family members for successful outcomes with Remote Day Learning. During this time of year, we typically are in the various stages of planning for the end of the school year with students and the numerous activities that take place among each grade level for recognition events along with preparations for the next school year. While students may not be in school and will not return for in class instruction, we want to ensure you that we continue to discuss and make appropriate preparations for finalizing our school year and addressing how we may provide adequate closure for students, parents and family members.

RIP American Democracy An accommodating GOP and Trump are transforming America into a dictatorship. America is waving goodbye to its constitutional form of government under President Donald Trump? Since 2016, observers in the U.S. and around the world have remarked on President Donald Trump and the Republican Party exhibiting authoritarian "tendencies." With a sense of numb shock, we now must acknowledge the facts before us.

Right now! God allowed this Coronavirus pandemic, to wake up the church and this world! The awakening has transpired and Christians are back on their knees in prayer. II Timothy Chapter 3 verses 1-5 explain this worlds downward spiral. Previous times, pride, boasters, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, liars, gossipers, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God! Right now!

I believe that God is about to bless, or promote those that remain faithful to Him. Sometimes, faithful Christians are put through trials, test and in some cases persecution. However, I am reminded today of three Hebrew men That would not bow down to worship a false god when ordered. Their faith and loyalty to the true living God remained steadfast. Because of their stand for truth, they were placed into a hot, fiery furnace. The flames and heat were so great that it killed the men that placed them into this furnace. However, when it was all said and done these three Hebrew men were not harmed. When others looked into the furnace they didn’t see three men but they seen a fourth.

City finances have been strained for some time. As City Treasurer I expect a strong negative affect on the financial status of the City due to loss of sales tax revenues, water revenue losses with the closures of restaurants, the loss of gaming revenue and the potential for a decrease in City revenues due to the inability of residents to pay real estate taxes. These concerns in loss of revenues will compoound the financial challenges the City is already trying to address.

Traffic is light on Illinois roadways right now, but this will change when the pandemic passes. April is 'Distracted Driving Awareness Month,' a time when motorists are encouraged to reflect on driving habits. Distractions contribute to thousands of vehicle accidents every year. The possibility of a behind-the-wheel mistake increases whenever a driver loses focus. Some situations are resolved trouble-free. Others end in serious, sometimes fatal, crashes. Minimizing driving distractions is a conscious decision.

During this time of uncertainty in the world, honesty remains strong in our community. Our checkbook was missing for over a week before we realized it. Surprisingly, it appeared completely intact, grocery list and all, in our mailbox last week.

Another loss suffered by the Greatest Generation

Frances Sutton passed away on March 20, 2020. She was 101. She was also my godmother.

Frances is the last familial connection that I had with the Greatest Generation. My mother, Othelle (Tella) Giovagnoli Edwards, and father, Phillip Edwards, along with their siblings passed away many years ago leaving only Frances as a connection with the group of people that persevered during one of the most trying times in our country’s history. Given our current circumstances, I think we could use some of their wisdom and guidance as we face another trying time.

Being confined to home when you're a gadabout like us can be tough. As a result of the covid-19 outbreak you, like us, may be going stir crazy. Remember when we didn't have cell phones possessing our souls every minute, television news was 30 minutes an evening, we visited with our neighbors and friends in person, played games and interacted with family.

Who is the driving force behind the Green wave sweeping the world, the United States, and now, Christian County via the wind farms controversy; one that champions replacing economical and proven energy sources with expensive “alternative energy” (wind and solar)?

I applaud the recent letter to the editor submitted by Mr. Merker in regard to the BDD. For clarification purposes I would like people to know that four aldermen on the council voted NO to the decision to purchase the emergency generator for City Hall, myself being one of those.

Dear Editor,

For two years I was the Program Director for Taylorville Main Street, the predecessor of Downtown Taylorville, the current downtown business group. For seven years prior to that I was a volunteer in the Main Street organization. Main Street’s focus was historic building preservation. Successful preservation requires a stable funding stream to pay for the myriad of projects required to preserve physical structures.

On Sunday - my birthday - after church I went for a daily walk. I walk 12 blocks every day. As I was walking up Main to Vine I saw 3 young men probably jr. high ages coming down the side walk towards me. As some young kids are today I was expecting to hear move out of the way old lady (I’m 81 years old.) Instead, as they passed, they said happy Sunday. I said happy Sunday and its also my birthday. They said happy birthday.
