This is the design local veterans have chosen for Veterans Memorial Park, which will be built on the triangular lot at Santa Fe Avenue and
Chestnut Street near Pearce Community Center. The local committee is now looking for residents to join them in raising funds for the
$250,000 project. illustration
Veterans Memorial Park in works
By Marianne Gillespie
hillicothe area veterans
are planning a large
memorial project and
now are asking for the public’s
“It’s a way for the citizens of
Chillicothe to say thank you,”
said veteran and proponent Tom
Veterans Memorial Park, a
$250,000 endeavor, will be located on the triangular property
near Pearce Community Center,
Santa Fe Avenue and Chestnut
The project was announced
Monday at a press conference at
the VFW Post 4999 home with
The Chillicothe Veterans Memorial Project committee got its
start after Harms and Ron Allen
rode around the United States
on their motorcycles and would
see veterans’ memorials.
“I felt that Chillicothe had
nice memorials,” Harms said of
the memorials which are located
in Chillicothe City Cemetery. “I
thought that we could do better.”
Letting the idea grow in his
mind, Harms decided that this
was the time to do something.
He called a meeting with the
American Legion, AMVETS and
VFW to talk about the idea in
early January.
With enthusiasm spreading,
the committee moved ahead.
“People will be just naturally
drawn to it,” said veteran Jim
Veteran Marshel Poff said the
memorial will recognize both
living veterans and those who
are deceased.
“It was 30 years before I ever
heard a thank you. I don’t want
the current veterans to wait that
long,” Poff said.
Harms said the memorial will
give residents and visitors alike
some time for reflection.
“Memorials mean different things to different people.
Veterans go to reflect on their
time spent. Civilians who have
never been in the service but
have an idea of what happened
get something different out of
it,” Harms said. “It gives you a
chance to think about it.”
From early on in the planning,
Poff said the committee did
not want the memorial to be a
“military hardware parking lot,”
so they looked for something
Finding a place
Looking for a suitable piece of
ground to build the memorial on
proved to be a challenge as the
men had seven or eight different
properties in mind, and a handful of criteria they wanted.
First, the area needed serenity
with some peace and quiet. It
also needed to be visible, allow
traffic and be secure.
Each property they vetted, but
they landed on Ruth McLaughlin’s triangular lot. She worked
the VFW bingo with Dave Hinkle one night, and he mentioned
the project to her early on in
the process. Her late husband,
Lee, was a World War II veteran
and a member of VFW post.
She offered it to the committee
if it was suitable for what they
“As soon as she knew we were
looking for a spot — boom —
she never hesitated,” Hinkle said
of McLaughlin’s donation of
After surveying the neighbors
and finding no objections, it
ended up meeting all the committee’s criteria.
Created by a 30-year Marine
Corps veteran Jim Pesch of
Peoria, the memorial itself is
to be inclusive to all veterans.
The shape of the memorial is a
star, one of the nation’s repeating symbols, from being used on
the flag to the nation’s greatest
awards for service. It is 53 feet
from point to point.
Around the star are six benches, representing each branch of
the military, including the sometimes forgotten Coast Guard
and Merchant Marines.
“This is for everybody. We
don’t want to forget anyone,”
Harms said.
Near the middle is the battlefield cross, comprised of the
boots, rifle and helmet. A rose
compass is also in the middle.
On either side of the entrance
are two guards saluting each
other: one is a Revolutionary
War guard from 1776 and the
other is from the Gulf War. Saluting each other symbolizes the
passing of the torch from one
generation to another, Harms
A back wall with three flag
poles in front of it bears the saying, “Freedom is not free.”
Making up the outlining of the
star is river rock of various colors, representing the ethnicity of
the service men and women.
The star includes positions for
3,400 bricks which may be

Toes in the Sand Massage offers getaway in town

Everything came together just right for
James Randell when
opening Toes in the Sand
Massage, a new massage
Randell moved to
Chillicothe in January 2013 and opened
the business in August.
He attended Midwest
Technical Institute in
East Peoria for massage
“I’ve got nothing but
praises about MTI. It’s a
great place to go. I was
lucky enough to get my
GI Bill to go,” Randell
After time in the Coast
Guard from 2001-08,
Randell was a truck
driver and mechanic living in Bloomington. He
then wanted a change of
pace and decided to attend MTI.
“It wasn’t massage
therapy, per say, that I
wanted to get into. I just
wanted to get away from
the 80-hour work weeks,
being gone all the time or
getting up at four in the
morning and getting back
at 10 at night,” Randell

Welcome to Springfield, Mr. Rauner
Welcome to Springfield, governor-elect
Illinois voters took a
gamble on you Nov. 4,
choosing you to be the
state’s 42nd governor
and the first Republican
to hold the office since
George Ryan departed
in 2003.
Your victory was far
from a landslide; you
won with slightly more
than 50 percent of the
That suggests Illinoisans aren’t completely
sold on you. But your
message of “take back
Illinois” resonated with
enough residents who
are hungry for a new
direction in a state
plagued by financial
problems and one-party
rule at the Statehouse.
Voters gambled by
placing their bets on a
rookie, an “outsider,”
someone different, after a difficult, intensely
negative campaign.
Now it’s time for you
to begin the important
task of bringing people
together to move Illinois
You are the least-experienced candidate to
be elected to statewide
office this week, and, for
now at least, you have
limited insight into the
workings of state government. That’s not to
say you can’t learn or
get things done. But you
must get educated about
the amount of time and
effort it’s going to take to
accomplish the items on
your ambitious agenda.
You’ve said you want
to address Illinois’ pension crisis; get the state
operating in the black;
reform the tax code and
close corporate tax loopholes; reform Central
Management Services;
reform workers compensation laws; devote more
money and attention to
education; invest in infrastructure, agriculture
and natural resources;
personally lure compa-
nies to Illinois; work the
floor of the legislature;
sit in on legislative committee hearings and
It’s simply unrealistic.
Quickly prioritize what
you most wish to accomplish — pension reform
and getting the state’s
budget in order should
be at the top of the list
— and focus on those
things. That’s what voters want most from you.
And once you decide
what it is you wish to
accomplish first, let the
voters and taxpayers in
on what it will take to
carry out those plans.
No more platitudes,
and no more I’ll-talkabout-it-later brush-offs.
Illinoisans are equal
partners in this endeavor, and they deserve to
understand exactly what
you want to do and how
you intend to do it. Tax-
payers deserve accountability.
We couldn’t help but
notice the boos of some
of your supporters during your election-night
acceptance speech
when you mentioned
House Speaker Michael
Madigan and Senate
President John Cullerton, both Democrats.
You had just proclaimed
your desire to work with
them to find bipartisan
solutions to the state’s
problems. You could
have demonstrated independence and leadership
had you reminded the
crowd that booing is not
a good beginning after
a tough campaign, nor
does it help you advance
your agenda on behalf of
the state.
Going forward, we
suggest surrounding
yourself with thoughtful, experienced, highly
principled aides, Republican and Democrat,
who can and will work
with all stakeholders —
including lawmakers on
both sides of the aisle,
taxpayers and unionized
state workers — to help
convey and carry out
your vision for Illinois.
Anything less makes
your pledges about bipartisanship and working together little more
than hollow promises.
Illinois is counting
on your leadership as
you work to make the
state more prosperous.
Some of the groundwork
already has been laid
— Illinois’ unemployment rate is improving,
for example. Voters are
looking to you to keep
it moving in the right
You’re clearly passionate about helping Illinois. Just keep in mind
that it all begins with
working across party
lines, delegating to those
you trust and learning to
pick your battles.

natural sites between
Ottawa and Havana, it
now directs visitors to
unique and authentic
visitor-based businesses
located throughout the
byway region through its
redesigned website and
recently launched mobile site.
With funding from
Illinois Department of
Transportation and Office of Tourism grants,
these new products enhance the visitors’ experience, as well as provide
small businesses opportunities to promote
themselves to those
traveling the 10-county
byway region.
Anaise Berry, byway
executive director, said,
“Byway travelers and

experience — exploring
communities’ history

in restaurants that aren’t
part of a national chain,
shopping in distinctive
stores, purchasing items
made or grown here in
the region, as well as
staying in lodging facilities such as B&Bs, inns
and boutique hotels. We
want to connect visitors
to the very businesses
they’re looking for when
traveling the Illinois
River Road.”
In an economic development study completed
by the Illinois River
Road in 2012, the byway
organization found that
byway visitors wanted to
know more about these
kinds of experiences as
part of their trip. Additionally, small byway
businesses that were
surveyed expressed a desire to be promoted on
the Illinois River Road
website, so that visiting
consumers could find
them more easily. “Connecting byway travelers

a win-win situation for
visitors and small business owners,” said byway

Experience joy by adopting a senior pet
November is Adopt-aSenior-Pet Month and
Peoria County’s Animal
Protection Services is encouraging animal lovers
seeking a companion to
visit the animal shelter
this month.
Adoption fees for all
pets over eight years of
age have been waived
in honor of Adopt-aSenior-Pet Month.
PCAPS encourages
anyone looking for a pet
to consider a more mature animal.
Some of the benefits of
adopting an older animal
• Older pets have manners. Most pets have
spent years living with a
family and have been socialized with humans.
• Residents can teach
an old dog (or cat) new
tricks. They are able to
focus easily and don’t get
distracted as easily as
younger pets.
• Older animals have
already passed through
the destructive phase.
• When residents
adopt a mature pet,
there isn’t a huge lifestyle
change for the adopter.
Older pets generally
acclimate to a routine
quicker and often take
little housebreaking.
• When residents
adopt an older animal,
residents already know
their size. It won’t get
any bigger or look any
different than at the time
of adoption.
• Mature animals usu-
ally behave better. They
are quieter, calmer and
more relaxed.
• And adoption fees
are waived in November.
Many dogs and cats
live for 12, 15, or even
more years.
If residents are concerned about the amount
of time you’ll have with
a senior pet, understand
that even a 10-year-old
animal has years of life

Local residents met at Grecian Gardens recently to be awarded some of the Summer Camp Community Contribution Fund proceeds. In 2007, Jay Goldberg Events and
Entertainment established the Summer Camp Community Contribution Fund with a portion of ticket sales from the Summer Camp music festival at Three Sisters
Park during Memorial Day weekend. In 2014, $25,116.00 was given to local Chillicothe community groups. The following organizations received proceeds from the
fund: Altrusa of Chillicothe; Boy Scouts of America; Boy Scout Troop 50; Boy Scout Troop 163; Chillicothe JFL; Chillicothe 4th of July; Chillicothe Historical Society;
Chillicothe Optimist Club; Covenant Fellowship Outreach; Cub Scout Pack 3091; Girl Scouts 4258; Hair Company Kids; Hasselberg Ag Museum; Junior Elite Dance

fit for me and my personality,” Randell said.

turned over to the Chillicothe
Veterans Memorial Commission to take care of its upkeep.
The commission is made up
of the commander of each local post plus one person they
each designate.
“I do therapeutic massages, but I’m geared
more towards relaxation,
because I believe that if
you can truly relax, calm
down and chill out and
listen to what your body
is telling you, your body
will fix a lot of problems
on its own,” Randell said.
Those with legitimate
problems, Randell will
recommend to a doctor
or chiropractor.
“It’s nice to see those
who come in moaning
and griping and when
they come out, they’re
looking like they’re feeling great,” Randell said.

New ground was broken again for the IVC

Johnson ran a personal
best, 18:15, to place her in
the top 20.
“She got out real well.
She popped out ahead in
time to get out front and
she did a great job,” Fraikes said.
“She put herself in the
position to get the spot
she did.”
She is the first girl run-

there were also positives
in the season as well.
It was the first year for
the IVC team to compete
in the tough Corn Belt
Conference. The Grey
Ghosts were able to earn
two conference wins over
Pontiac, 17-7, and Bloom-
ington Central Catholic,
“It was our first year.
Now we know how we’re
going to play with them.
Against U-High, we
weren’t too competitive,
but against everyone else
I thought we were,” coach
Tim Heinz said.

IVC touchdown leader
with seven.
Patty closed out the
year with three and senior Sam Christian was
the first to score an IVC
touchdown in the season
in the opening match
against Canton.
Throughout the nine
games, IVC was outscored 84-215. However,
the Grey Ghosts had a
strong first half approach and only allowed
91 points in the first half
throughout the year.
“I think we were in
every ball game until the
fourth quarter. We had
the opportunities to win
we just didn’t make the
plays to do that,” Heinz
“Our defense did well
all year but offensively
we struggled to make
some pays.”

after suffering a hand injury in the week five
game against Mahomet-

Mercer took the reins of
the IVC offense and was
able to sustain the attacks.
The two lone touchdown passes of the season came from Mercer in
the Eureka Homecoming
Mercer connected with
Patty on touchdown
passes of 32-yard and
42-yards. IVC ultimately
fell to the Hornets, 3727.
Although the varsity
team lost its fair share of
16 seniors, the juniors
and underclassmen will
be looking to take the
field next year.
“We’ll return some
good kids. We just have
to get them in the weight
room and get them
working,” Heinz said.
Heinz completed his
10th year with the Grey
Ghosts and has built up
a 60-39 record.
This is the third year
under Heinz the Grey
Ghosts missed the playoffs.

Last year, more than 1,750 Chillicothe residents benefitted from United Way funded
programs such as youth mentoring, services for members of the armed forces, legal
help and much more. In addition, the United Way supports youth fitness programs
at the Pearce Community Center in Chillicothe. In total, 36 Heart of Illinois United
Way funded programs were utilized by Chillicothe residents last year.
Good nutrition is particularly important for school children. While they may eat breakfast and lunch at school
during the week, weekend meals are limited in some households. That’s why the United Way supports a snack
pack program through the Pearce Community Center in Chillicothe.
“There are a lot of hungry kids out there and I think it’s
important as a community to do what we can to make
sure those needs aren’t left unserved,” Ben Alvarez,
Pearce Community Center Director, said.

Peoria County
Problems and progress mark overhaul of
Peoria Co.’s criminal justice computer system
By andy Kravetz
GateHouse Media Illinois
PEORIA — Trying to
evaluate how the first year
of Peoria County’s $7 million overhaul of its criminal
justice computer system is
difficult, to say the least.
On one hand, 60 million
data records were converted
and the public can access
criminal, civil and traffic
records on the Internet,
something they couldn’t
do before. But the program
has hampered the way the
county reports convictions,
both criminal and traffic, to
the state, and a judge found
several unreported driving
under the influence convictions; a fact which he found
All show the long voyage
that began last year with the
installation of the Odyssey
program has not yet been
“Some felt that it would
work right out of the box
like magic and that’s just not
the case,” said Mark Little,
the county’s chief information officer. “We had a meeting a few months ago and I
showed people a picture of
a skyscraper and they felt
that’s where we were with
regards to Odyssey. Then
I showed them a picture
of the basement and told
them that’s where we actually are. There’s a lot more
to come.”
The project was among
the largest ever done by
Texas-based Tyler Technologies and the first in Illinois.
Peoria County sought to
integrate the computers of
the courts, the clerk’s office, probation officers, the
State’s Attorney’s Office and
the Sheriff’s Office, allowing
them to share information
in real time.
Before Odyssey, each office was its’ own enclave,
unable to communicate
with the other areas. The
clerk’s office was using a
30-year-old system which
resembled an old DOS operating system. Converting
the old data was a daunting
task. There were more than
2 million cases and 500,000
bookings that needed to be
converted into a format that
a modern Windows-based
program could use.
From the beginning, a key
issue was automated disposition reporting (ADR)
or electronically reporting
convictions to the state. It
worked under the old system but the state hasn’t yet
signed off on ADR for Odyssey. Critics say Tyler dropped
the ball on this aspect and
as a result, the deputy clerks
in Bobby Spears’ office were
forced to do handwritten
dispositions, something
they hadn’t done for more
than 20 years.
Spears says his office
is now running about six
months behind in reporting
cases, though most of those
are traffic offenses. He and
others knew ADR wasn’t
going to be up and running
when the system went live
last November but Spears
says he didn’t think it’d take
a year.
“They told us that it would
take a few weeks and then it
would be up and running.
Now the state did say it’d
take a year but Tyler was
telling us that it wouldn’t
take that long,” the clerk
Little and Tom Seckler, a business operations
manager in the county’s IT
department, concur, but
believed that with Tyler’s
background and their efforts, a year was just too
long. They were wrong.
“We were in a Catch-22,”
Seckler said. “The state
wouldn’t let us use practice
data so we could only begin
to test ADR once we went
live. And there were no written specifications on what
they wanted.”
Seckler said state officials had recommended to
continue running the old
system alongside the new
one for that very reason.
But both Tyler and Peoria
County officials nixed that,
saying it was duplication of
work and they believed the
state would relate.
Little said Tyler did 36
different changes to the program, each time in response
to what the state wanted.
But those changes came
piecemeal and resulted in
weeks of delay. The two
IT men both think Peoria
County is on the cusp of
being certified by the state
to file its dispositions electronically.
And that couldn’t come
soon enough for Judge Kim
Kelley, who presides over
the DUI courtroom. Twice,
he said, the probation officer assigned to his courtroom found “pages upon
pages of dispositions” that
weren’t recorded with the
Secretary of State’s office.
The public safety implications, said Chief Judge Steve
Kouri, were enormous.
“It means a person could
get arrested and get court
supervision and then get
arrested on the other side
of the river and possibly get
the same thing,” he said,
referring to the punishment
given to first-time offenders.
“It’s a public safety risk.”
Kelley agreed completely
and when he found the last
stack of 50 to 100 cases not
registered with Springfield,
he marched down to Spears’
office and told them it was
“To their credit, they got it
fixed that day,” he said.
But that also begs the
larger question of why Odyssey, which is a modern
computer system, is actually making more work for
the clerks and causing them
to fall behind. Kelley, who
admits he’s not a computer
guru, offered this reason.
“Odyssey isn’t a computer
program that is based upon
efficiency, it’s based upon
integration,” he said.
That contention is backed
up by several deputy clerks
who, over the months, have
grumbled about having to
enter more data, click more
links and note that such actions slow the entire court
system down.
Bret Dixon, the head of
Tyler’s courts and justice division, said in a statement
that “Peoria is a great client,
and Tyler is committed to
helping them optimize their
business processes.”
According to Dixon, 600
counties in 21 states use the
Odyssey system.
Little believes Odyssey
was and remains the right
choice for Peoria County.
“No one likes change and
when you have been doing
something the same way
for 30 years, it’s gonna be
hard to change, I get that,
but Odyssey is going to let
us do so much more than
we can now,” Little said. “It
takes time. Another county
we visited took five to seven
years to get to where we got
in one year.”
