" These Times r from the d .of Joe King By Mike Lakin About 180 people supported Special Olympics athletes by jumping into the waters of Lin- coin Lakes March 21 raising $30,766.91. Nathan Fanning of Chestnut "won" Best Cos- tumes Individual. Nathan was Superman. With Illinois having the worse pension financial crisis of all 50-states. With budget cuts looming. It's good to see Rep- resentative Keith Sommer of ca Morton has realized the sever- ity of the state's situation and sponsored a bill to make pump- kin pie the official pie of Illi- nois. Makes sense, in this time of crisis, the Illinois legislature thinks of pie. It was great to see Wally Kautz enjoying his retirement reception. And it was great to see former courthouse site superin- tendent Richard Schachtsiek. Richard's comment that Wally was truly the courthouse insti- tutional memory was likely the best comment someone could make. Wally has a combina- tion of knowledge of the court- house's history and an ability to work with the state that will be missed. He accomplished so much over the years by just "nudging" the state for what was needed. Judy Cavestani pointed out I "butchered" Richard Schachtsiek's last name in the last issue. My weak defense is, I'd not had to spell his last name in dose to a dozen years. Marry Spear is running for Mt Pulaski Township Park Board. Though un-opposed, he is asking for votes. He'd appre- ciate receiving more than the two votes he has a lock on, at least he thinks he has a lock on. British rocket car could reach 1,000 mph and be the fastest on Earth.
