Representative Bill Mitchell visits residents of Vonderlieth Living Center By - Jo Hilliard Representative Bill Mitchell paid a visit to residents of Vonderlieth Living Center and Apartments. It was his second visit since becoming an official. "I enjoy coming here," Mitchell smiled. "It's a beautiful home." The residents enjoyed the visit, too, but weren't about to let him off with an easy meet and greet event. "I want to know what you people are doing about the mess this state is in." Gladys Moore asked, point- ing to the representative.."This state is a mess!" "I agree," Mitchell responded, "and it will take hard work to get back where.we need to be. It's an embarrassment for us all." Later, speaking with several board members for the Vonderlieth Trust. Mitchell prom- ised tough days ahead for state reimbursement. "While the federal stimulus monies dictated which bills to pay, a lot of important services went unpaid. The $500,000 plus dollars we owe the school district is an example. When the stimulus money ends. we'll be back to paying everyone as-quickly as we can." That means that some pro- viders will get paid sooner, but nursing homes will fall back again from the current "'quick" turn around of 30 - 60 days after ser- vice is provided to the pre-stimu- lus days of as much as 180 days or more. Mitchell took back with him a poster, signed by residents, staff. families and board members. The poster is a promise from the nurs- ing home to its pro- vide the care and service they deserve remembering to show dig- nity and respect, kindness and compassion. !

[ I I Summer Band Concerts Mt. Pulaski's Community Band "struck up the band" under a clear sky and with comfortable temperatures. School Band Director David Helm (RIGHT) took up the baton for the evening; opening the concert with the National Anthem. Conductor Harry Wayne Hild is temporarily sidelined. Harry had surgery recently for an old leg injury. And. conducting the band with a crutch just isn't the same. Concert goers enjoyed - Spoon River Saga, Can't Help Falling in Love. Kentucky 1800. Broadway Journey. Blue Ridge Overture. Colonel Bogey. 50's Melody, and Coast Guard March. The band is well served with sixteen musicians. There is still room for you. Besides local musicians, there is a married couple who comes from Bloomington, another from Cantrall. and one from Buffalo. Harry Hild says some of the musicians make the trip as an outlet to play their instruments as the larger community bands around the area have lim- ited seating in the bands.

I found it to be of great con- cern. Maybe you will also, and maybe you won't. Maybe there are so many other things-going on in your life and around you it will be crowded out. Perhaps it will seem to be such a distant or small or insignificant issue, that it will be dismissed from your thoughts. It is a disclaimer printed by a pub- lishing company. They print the Con- stitution, among other historical documents. The dsclaimer is as follows: This" book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were writ- ten today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how Jus' Thinkin' views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal rela- tions have changed since this book was written, before allowing them to read this classic work." It caused another quote to come to mind. It is from Ecclesiastes. that is a book in the Old Testa- ment of the. Bible, It is in the first chapter and is part of verse nine. o- 4 th of July Garage Sales With the 4 t of July on Sunday, Mt.
