Missed it by that much By Mike Lakin Mt. Pulaski joined in the attempt to break a Guin- ness World Record for the most people reading a single document at one time. The attempt took place Feb. 11 when people here and else- where read Lincoln's Farewell Address on the 150 th anniver- sary of its delivery. Thirteen states and 105 locations sent in verification. Between 13,000 and 14,000 people joined in for the five- minute reading. But that didn't come close to breaking the Guinness record. That record, 223,363 people read- ing a passage from Charlotte's Web, holds as the World Record. BIBLE FACT - The system of chap- ters was introduced in A.D. 1238 by Cardinal Hugo de S. Caro, while the verse notations were added in 1551 by Robertus Stephanus, after the advent of printing. Electronic Payments A Must By Judith Bartels Social Security District Manager, Springfield The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced a new rule that will phase out paper checks for Federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. Anyone applying for Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits on or after May 1, 2011, will receive their payments elec- tronically, while those already receiving paper checks will need to switch to electronic payments by March 1, 2013. Social Security, SSI, Veter- ans Affairs, Railroad Retire- ment Board, Office of Person- nel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments are included. For most people getting monthly benefits, this won't really be a change; already 8 out of 10 beneficiaries receive payments electronically. If you still get your check in the mail, you don't need to wait for the new rule to go into effect to enjoy the benefits of electronic payments: Please visit today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, inexpensive, and green way -- electroni- cally. 106 5  Street - Lincoln - 217-732-7773 - Toll Free 877-465-7773 Order now through Memorial Day and receive 10% off total purchase Peasley Memorials where families come for the service and quality they trust!
