Submitted by Pat Straumann Simple Note S1U HealthCare sent a simple note... "We are closing this clinic." That's the SILl School of Medi- cine Mt. Pulaski Clinic. School Budget Depends on State Superintendent Phil Shelton said it is difficult to give a prediction on the 2011-2012-budget at this time due to the uncertainty in state gov- ernment. Any increase in prop- erty tax money from higher EAV would probably be offset by cut backs in state aid and transportation payments. He thought the district would be fortunate to have the same amount of revenue as it did this year. Until the budget for the State Board of Education is finalized, the school district will not know what state pay- ments will be made.
