TWENTY-ONE CITIZENS ATFENDED a meet- ing -Thursday, October 25 at 12:30 pm at the Aetna Township Building. The purpose of the meeting, scheduled by an official out of the St. Louis district office, was to announce future plans for the Chestnut Post Office. For the time being, the Chestnut Post Office wiU begin holding shorter busi- ness hours, starting January or February 2013. The window service will be open Mondays-Fridays 8:30 am to 12:30 pm but continue to hold regular service hours on Saturday mornings 8:30 am to 10:15 am. Access to post office boxes will not change. The U. S. Post Office official stated that 2013 would be a trial year to gauge how well the new service hours would be utilized in the Chestnut community. He fielded questions from the attendees, one being about the receipt of special delivery letters and packages. He stated that "lock- ers" wiU be placed in the reception area for the pick-up of packages and people will have access to keys for the lockers. He commended Chestnut for its excel- lent response to the surveys that were sent out. Chestnut held a 96% return rate of the surveys, which may have influenced the U. S. Post Office's decision against closing Chestnut Post Office completely. Again, he emphasized that 2013 will be a trial year and encouraged the citizens to continue to patronize their post office as much as possible and to continue to write to their legislators. The final decision will be at the end of 2013 after determining the success of using the new post office hours of service. The official stated, 'if'm from Lovington, and I understand how important your post office is in a small community': Submitted By - Rebecca Drake The number of Americans falling ill or dying from contaminated food is up 44% over the past two years.

CITY OF MT PULASKI AUDIT was com- pleted by the firm of Estes, Bridgewater & Ogden of Springfield. The firm noted no transactions entered into by the governmental unit during the year for which there is a lack of authorita- tive guidance or consensus. All significant transactions have been recognized in the financial statements in the proper period. It was noted the firm encountered no difficulties in dealing with the city in performing and completing the audit. No disagreements arose during the course of the firm's audit. The audit firm recommends that the City consider establishing separate bank accounts for each cash fund. At a mini- mum, the firm recommends a separate bank account be etablished for the TIF fund to ensure compliance with related laws, regulations, grants, contracts, etc. The firm also recommends the Water Utility checking account be used to directly pay for the related operating expenses. Failure to segregate activity in cash accounts creates undue complexity and risk and could cause the related finan- cial statements to materiality misstated. The firm recommends the City take measures to ensure that all anticipated expenditures from City funds be recog- nized and included in the annual appro- priations ordinance. The presidential campaigns spent about $10 in commercials for every registered voter. Thank You for the /n memorials given Memory.of..
