Walton announces run for Circuit Judge position

By ADAM SACASA Eagle Staff Writer

After McDonough County Ninth Judicial Circuit Judge William D. Henderson announced he would not be seeking another term in the November 2010 election, Patricia A. Walton announced her candidacy for the position in an Aug. 28 press release. Walton, a graduate of Valparaiso University College of Law, earned her attorney license for Illinois in 1985 and conducted a private practice before becoming an associate judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit in August 1994. During her time covering all six counties within the district, she has presided over a wide range of cases ranging from small claims to attempted murder. For the judge, her time presiding over juvenile court was more than just a stepping-stone to a higher court. "I believe that juvenile court requires the most experienced judges and attorneys, because it is in juvenile court that we are best able to provide assistance that will make a difference," said Walton in the press release. She also had the opportunity to collaborate with social service agencies and legal agencies. She still hears juvenile matters in McDonough, Fulton and

The way they worked in the past: The hand-crank corn sheller

Artifact of the Month

By HEATHER MUNRO

This month the Western Illinois Museum's Artifact of the Month is an antique hand-crank corn sheller manufactured by E. G. Isch & Co. of Peoria. Donated in 1979 by Martha Harmon, Industry, the corn sheller was once an item seen on many farms in the area.

As summer winds down, harvest is just around the corner. It has always been a busy time on the farm. Long ago, before farmers had mechanization and technology at their fingertips, they were consumed with the quantity of farm work that had to be completed by hand or by simple machines. Corn shellers were invented to make one chore in the life of the farmer just a little bit easier. In the mid-nineteenth

century, America was mostly a farming nation. At the time, many inventions were made for a wide variety

of items designed to mechanize the American farm. A huge number of inventions were focused on working with corn. Corn is a very laborintensive crop; it must be picked, shucked, dried and shelled. The largest portion of corn-related inventions was for

the shelling or stripping of the kernels from the cob. Corn shellers can come in many sizes, from small hand-held ones to large, wagonmounted ones. The corn sheller at the museum is medium-sized, made of wood: a box-like device about three feet high standing on a footed base about 17 inches wide. Painted on one side is the maker's name, "E. G. Isch & Co., Peoria, ILL." The Peoria Blue Book Directory of

1915 lists the Isch Company as a maker of farm machinery. On one side is a metal flywheel about 2 feet across and on the other side a wooden crank handle about 1 foot long. Mounted atop the main "box" is the metal opening into which the operator would feed the corncobs. Knobbed wheels are visible inside the metal opening; they rub together and remove

Honeybee program at Lakeview

To help children learn more about bees and why they are so important, Lakeview Nature Center is presenting "Busy Honey Bees," a great program planned for children in grades 1-6. The program is packed full with bee facts, stories, crafts and investigations. This is a great way to safely see bees up close. Honeybees have fallen on hard times. Illinois Department of Natural Resources tells us that the wild honeybee may be a thing of the past. The Collapsed Hive Syndrome has left bee hive owner's puzzled as what is causing bee hives to fail. Cellular towers, mites, global warming, as well as other causes have all been blamed. So far no scientist has discovered why bees are leaving. Remember that all fruits, nuts and vegetables need bees to pollinate their flowers. Lakeview Nature Center has their observable bee hive up and going. The queen bee is busy laying eggs. The female worker bees are busy taking care of the baby bees in the nursery. This program will be from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16 at Lakeview Nature Center. The maximum number of participants is 12, so register early for this program at the Macomb Park District Office, 1406 N. Randolph St., Macomb, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. 4 p.m., or call 833-4562, TTY 837-7301. Registration fee is $8 for park district residents, $12 for non-residents; Deadline is Sept. 11. If your child needs an accommodation based on a disability to attend this program, contact the park office at least five business days before the program begins. Lakeview Nature Center is located at 10050 N. 1500 Road, Macomb, just west of the entrance to Spring Lake Park.

Relax with Serenity Falls

By JILLIAN STAMBAUGH Eagle Staff Writer

In today's fast-paced world, sometimes people need to step back and re-evaluate their situation in life and find what helps them relax ­ that is exactly what Shellie Lorenzen did, with hopes that she can do the same for others through massage therapy. Lorenzen, a licensed massage therapist, will be opening her new

business, Serenity Falls Massage Therapy, at 912 W. Jackson, Suite D on Sept. 15 with parttime business partner Bethany Reed. Before going to school to be a massage therapist, Lorenzen had long hours that took a toll on her well-being. "I was running a trucking, excavating and dispatch service ­ a very full-time job," she said. "I was working 15-17 hours a day, six or seven days a week, and it was

costing me my health. I was getting massages as often as I could and I've always had in interest in it." One day, Lorenzen said she just woke up and decided it was time for a mid-life career change. She took courses for her license at Alive and Wellness in Moline and knew she wanted her own

the crank and one to feed the corn in. Farmers today work with corn in a more efficient way, but back before mechanization ­ as this hand-crank simple machine shows us ­ farmers had to toil long and hard to get the work done. Today, this corn sheller shows the modern museum visitor the way they worked in the past. The museum displays one specially selected item each month to show visitors the wide variety of material held in the museum's collections. The monthly exhibit shows an artifact worthy of note including information about the artifact itself as well as the history connected to it. The museum preserves and protects artifacts from the region and highlights the rich heritage of western Illinois. When visiting the museum to see the corn sheller, please also enjoy visiting the exhibition in the main gallery: "Clay Works: Industry and Arts" on display through Nov. 21. There will be an opening reception for the Clay Works exhibition Sept. 10 from 6-8 p.m. It is open free to the public. The corn sheller will be on display through Sept. 30. The museum is located at 201 S. Lafayette St., Macomb, and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission to the museum is always free, but donations are appreciated.

the kernels from the cob. Kernels would drop into a box on the ground and when the ear was clean, the cob would be ejected out the other end. Once the handle was cranked (on the other side of the sheller), the heavy flywheel helps to keep the momentum going. The flywheel is an important component as hand cranking is tedious, hard work. Flywheels have been used in simple machines since ancient times, the most common example being the potter's wheel. The shelled corn was usually used for feed ­ usually chicken feed as most farms in the area had chickens. Sometimes the corncobs were used as fuel for stoves. Eventually corn shellers were mechanized and used from the 1890s until the mid-twentieth century. Today they are no longer used because combines, which combine the work of picking, shucking and shelling, have made them obsolete. At McDonough County farms now, hand-crank corn shellers are a rarity. There are still a few around and a few farmers who can recall the days when they were used. Sterling Davis, a long-time Macomb farmer, remembers as a young boy about 1933 or 1934, seeing a hand-crank corn sheller at his grandfather's farm. He noted, "I wasn't big enough to turn it..." but he saw the bigger boys taking turns operating the crank. Davis recalls that "everybody would take turns..." as shelling was a two-person job, one to turn

elementary school students. The program, "Seven Reasons to Leave a Party" is geared more toward the high school level for which Walton is a trained presenter of the Illinois Judges Association program, which was developed by Judge Mark Drummond of Quincy. "He started presenting that in area schools and then realized that just one judge couldn't handle all the schools that were interested in it," said Walton. To meet demand, a training program was developed with the Illinois Judges Association that other judges could volunteer for. Working with Regional Superintendent John Meixner, the program could be shown at all high schools in McDonough and Hancock Counties. Walton says, "The purpose of the program is to advise students and their parents of the personal and legal consequences of drinking, driving, and taking drugs." Another gap Walton hopes to fill is the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program. "Volunteers within the community are trained to interact with the child, his or her family, service providers and school, and report to the court as to the child's needs and best interest," stated Walton in the press release. Although the program is known on a national level, Knox, Hancock and Fulton counties have it but McDonough does not. If victorious, Walton would be the first female elected to the position. "After 15 years of judicial experience and hard work, I am asking the voters of McDonough County to elect me as the Circuit Judge of McDonough County," she said. The primary election will be held Feb. 2 and the General Election will be Nov. 2, 2010.

Warren Counties. In order to help cut costs for the county, she is looking into an inmate labor program. In 2000, Walton, an administrative judge at the time, organized the renovation of the traffic clerk's office and sheriff's office into a new courtroom. With the agreement of former McDonough County Sheriff Stan Carman, three inmates provided labor for the project. Walton says the action saved several thousand dollars. Since then, no inmates have been used, but Walton wants to explore the option if elected. In the press release, she says, "Not only would this serve to complete projects for the benefit of McDonough County, it would also reduce the sometimes extensive fines that remain outstanding." She adds that the inmate would have to be screened and have supervision. "It can't just be any type of project," said Walton. Because of a rise in drug related crimes, Walton seeks to establish a drug court for McDonough County similar to those already in existence in Warren and Knox County. "The local and regional news is replete with articles regarding the resurgence of methamphetamine labs and meth usage within our Circuit." She sees current methods such as probation and or incarceration as `ineffective.' The establishment of a drug court would bring frequent court involvement and monitoring. "People who have drug courts over a period of time, feel they have had a better success rate than traditional methods of incarceration or probation," said Walton. To prevent offenders from even getting arrested before they're adults, the D.A.R.E. program is offered to

DVD Recommendations

Top Recommendation: Wholesome characters capture viewers with realistic storylines and serve as phenomenal role models in the cinematic presentation of "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story." Starring Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr., this emotional story sideswipes viewers with wonderful messages that deliver a theme of believing in one's own individual potential. Its straightforward and inspirational story is moving while the human side of neurological surgery carries faithful spirit. As an adult, Ben Carson (Gooding Jr.) is a renowned brain surgeon, but his past childhood actions could have lead him down the wrong course in life. Carson did not have much of a chance, growing up in a broken home that struggled against poverty and bigotry. With low selfesteem, his temper indication and hope that today's youth could benefit from this motivational journey. The script speaks eloquently and expands the beautiful story with amazing transformations. This family film will bring adults and children together for a wonderful viewing experience. Issues are discussed cunningly that help viewers understand the circumstances many unfortunate individuals have to go through in life. Also starring Kimberly Elise, Angela Dawe and Tajh Bellow; NR.

Le Alexander flared and his grades suffered in school. But, with a persistent mother, she helped Carson grow into an intelligent and imaginative human being despite his frustration at life. Trusting in God and using his faith to believe in himself, Carson followed his dream of becoming one of the world's leading neurosurgeons. Gooding Jr. delivers with remarkable compassion by balancing skepticism and determination in his character. The use of faith and God plays a pivotal role in the film with a strong

Health department to Acclaimed pianist accompanies host free workshop

The McDonough County Health Department will partner with National Restaurant Association and participate in the 2009 National Food Safety Education Month, this September, to showcase its commitment to food safety education and training. This year's theme is "Food Safety Thrives When You Focus on Five." This annual food safety campaign strives to build awareness of the restaurant and foodservice industry's commitment to serving safe food, heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education, and encourage additional food safety training for all industry employees. The McDonough County Health Department will hold a free HACCP workshop on "Food Safety Thrives When You Focus on Five" on Sept. 17 from 2-4 p.m. for all food facilities in McDonough County. There will also be an informational display the entire month of September at the Health Department on the topic. "We are excited about participating in this month-long campaign," said Bre Potts of the McDonough County Health Department. "Americans are aware of food safety now more than ever before, and through National Food Safety Education Month, we have the opportunity to highlight what we are doing in the restaurant and foodservice industry to educate employees and customers on proper food safety procedures."

Keaton's silent film classic

Film Society of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, LaSalle Bank Theatre, North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, and the the Cleveland Museum of Art. Drazin's performances are said to combine the excitement of a concert with the entertainment of a classic film screening. Writing about his accompaniment of Dante's Inferno at this year's Cinevent festival in Columbus, Ohio, Michael Gebert in "Classic Images" magazine noted that Drazin "pounded the ivories like a man possessed to get the full fire and brimstone out of it." A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. Drazin received his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from Ohio State University. An accomplished performer, he moves easily from dramatic classical to lively jazz styles, boogie-woogie and blues, original novelty works and Harlem stride piano. In

Take a trip back in time Tuesday, Sept. 8, when Western Illinois University's Department of Broadcasting and Department of English and Journalism present a performance by internationally acclaimed pianist David Drazin, accompanying Buster Keaton's classic Civil War comedy, "The General." The screening will be held in the Sandburg Auditorium of the University Union at 7 p.m. There is no admission charge for the performance. Pianist and composer David Drazin is a music and motion picture archivist who acquired a national reputation for his piano improvisations accompanying silent films. Silent movie screenings for which he has performed include the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (staff accompanist since 1985), Pordenone Silent Film Festival, Italy (guest pianist 2003 and 2004), Silent

addition to his film work, Drazin accompanies ballet and modern dance classes for several major groups in the Chicago area. "The General" is widely regarded not only as Buster Keaton's best comedy, but also as one of the greatest films of all time. In addition to displaying intricate comic timing that is a trademark of Keaton's work, the film has been praised for its faithful recreation of the Civil War era. The performance will be introduced by Dr. Richard Ness, film and media instructor in the Department of Broadcasting. A reception will be held in the Sandburg Lounge following the performance. This event is sponsored by the Department of Broadcasting and by the Department of English and Journalism. Both departments co-sponsor a minor degree in film studies that is available through WIU.

It's fútbol season at Macomb High School

Off the top of my head, there are three things I can remember growing up have taken a little longer to come to fruition than predicted. First off, the metric system taking over our everyday use, replacing miles, feet, inches, etc. Secondly, flying cars. I recall a vast majority of my classmates saying that flying cars would take over in the year 2000, a topic of discussion on what the world would be like at the turn of the century. The third thing growing up that looked to take off was a sport called soccer. As a youngster, soccer was the sport of choice since other games at recess were banned (in particular a game involving a football that has a politically incorrect name). In 1989, it seemed like soccer was becoming the next big sport, something we would be watching on TV in the near future. It took quite a bit longer than first thought, but a lot has moved forward in the national spotlight for soccer in the last 20 years. Many high school

Macomb High School's soccer program is now in its eighth year of existence and head coach Jeff Moore has been with the program for a majority of those seasons. "We had low-20s to high-20s for JV and varsity. The feeder program was the YMCA general fall and spring soccer programs and a few kids played indoor soccer in Quincy. That was about the extent. It has really evolved over the years," Moore said of the development and interest in the sport since the early days. Many Bombers and future Bombers soccer players are involved in Club League play throughout the year. "The Club addition has really improved the

level of play at Macomb. Our numbers have gone up to around 30 last year to 35-36 (grades 9-12 this year)," Moore said. Preparing for the season is a year-round effort by the Bomber players. "I think the parents that do all this work that take their kids to the Quad Cities, deserve so much credit. It's a lot of expense and effort to get these kids to play better competition." The YMCA feeder programs are also a big boost to help develop the players as they move up into the high school ranks. "It develops by giving them an opportunity to play, a chance to try moves, what works and what doesn't. As they come into high school, they control the ball, and your first touch is so important at any level," Moore said. In Bomber country, the hopes are high for a successful season at Macomb this year. "As a team over the

next couple weeks, the team will start to gel and look to be strong at the end of the year. With a little bit of experience and speed, (we) should have a better season than last year, but a pretty tough schedule in the next couple weeks - no slouches for a while." So in the last 20 years, what does someone that has been involved deeply in the sport feel about its progress? "It's increased exponentially. People are tuning into the World Cup and Confederations Cup, and people know there is a U.S. team and what they're doing." Soccer, though, still does have a way to go before it becomes nationally recognized as other sports. "(Soccer) has a long way to go before it has the fan passion that a baseball and football have, but it's a lot more prominent in national news media. There is more soccer coverage than you could get 20 years ago."

The Macomb High boys' soccer program has picked up numbers over the past few years, which has been helped along by increased media coverage of the sport at the professional level in America.

Pride of Ownership Awards

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photojournalist at WIU

Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist John H. White, who has captured important moments in history throughout the world, will be at Western Illinois University on Thursday, Sept. 17 to share some of his experiences and meet with students and faculty. His presentation of visuals and accompanying remarks is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sept. 17 in the University Union Heritage Room. This session is open free to the public. Throughout the day, White will also meet with journalism students, the student-run campus newspaper Western Courier and faculty. The legendary Chicago photojournalist earned national recognition in the 1970s for his "Portrait of Black Chicago" series, which is part of the National Archives (www.archives.gov/ex hibits/portrait_of_blac k_chicago/introduction.html). The honored collection grew out of the work he did during part of 1973 and Spring 1974 for the Environmental Protection Agency's DOCUMERICA project. Images were taken on Chicago's South Side and "Skid Row," depicting the conditions that many African Americans faced in the Windy City in that era. The National Archives quoted White, who said the DOCUMERICA assignment was "an opportunity to capture a slice of life, to capture history"; and even through the challenges the residents faced, he could feel the "spirit, love, zeal, pride and hopes of the community," which was captured in his photographs. White, who has been a staff photographer at the Chicago Sun Times since 1978, has won more than 300 awards for his work, including the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography. His winning portfolio of photos chronicled a year in the life of Chicago, and it was the first, and only, time, the Pulitzer was awarded for a body of "consistently excellent work on a variety of subjects," rather than a single photograph. He has been teaching his life's craft at Columbia College (Chicago) for more than 30 years; and in a question-and-answer article appearing in the campus' Nov. 17, 2008 Columbia Chronicle newspaper, White revealed what is vital to being a photojournalist. "The most important prescription I give

my students are the three F-words: faith, focus and flight. I tell them to stay faithful, because without them, the world isn't complete, and to stay focused on what really counts and what really matters. But flight is the one I love most, because it's just to spread your wings and live your dreams," White said. When asked about working for the Chicago Sun-Times, White said: "I don't work for the Chicago Sun-Times. I work for humanity. I work for the world; I am the eyes of the world by the way of the Chicago Sun-Times. I work for creation and the creator, and the Chicago Sun-Times serves as a wonderful vehicle through which I can share my daily work." In 1990 White accompanied Rev. Jesse Jackson to South Africa for a rally trying to free Nelson Nandela who had been imprisoned 27 years. "At the end the South African cops, with guns and dogs, started to surround us and started shooting people. And I saw them shoot ... and I started taking pictures, and they pulled a gun on me to shoot me," White wrote about the photo that had appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times Feb. 13, 1990. (See http://www2.colum.edu/cps/ demo/portfolio.php#) "But the next morning, Mandela was released from prison, and here I was, out of all the places in the universe that I could be, I was there when Mandela was released. That Tuesday Mandela went to his home in Soweto for the first time. I went in the house, and I was the only photographer in there. Mandela came in the kitchen to get his coat to go out and greet the world--he was just smiling and putting on his jacket. And that was the moment this photo was taken. This was Mandela in his house for the first time, and that moment was precious to me, and precious to the world, and precious to him. And I could share it with the world ­ a moment in history."

business. Lorenzen, who has lived in Berwick for 22 years, considered Galesburg and Macomb for her business's location, and Macomb won out in the end for several reasons. "Galesburg's economy isn't great and I also know Macomb well since I attended WIU and have a summer home in Colchester," she explained of her decision. "The outlook on massage is a lot different here compared to Galesburg." While Lorenzen is in her first year as a massage therapist, Reed has been servicing Macomb in the same capacity for two years. Reed graduated three years prior to Lorenzen, who heard about Reed through the program. Reed happened to be looking for changes in her massage program and the two entered into business together. Serenity Falls, titled after a waterfall on Lorenzen's property, offers couples massages, reflexology, deep tissue massages and chakra sessions. In October, hot stone massages will be added to the mix; this winter, laughter yoga and infant massage classes are also being looked into. In addition, Lorenzen sells healthy chocolate, which helps as a natural anti-inflammatory and has high antioxidant and flavinoids. On the fifteenth of each month, Lorenzen will host healthy chocolate meetings at 7 p.m. to discuss the food and ailments ­ anyone interested is welcome to attend, she said. "This is not your typical candy concept," she shared. "People can come in and ask questions, discuss health issues and see if it can help them." Both Lorenzen and Reed are booking appointments now. Pricing runs $45 for an hour, $65 for one and one-half hour, $75 for hot stone and $35 for a half hour massage ­ all are customized massages for each client depending on their needs. Chair massages, a short lunchtime massage option, late hours and on-site massages for special group events are also available as needed, Lorenzen added, saying, "we are all about customizing things for our clients. I'm a firm believer that everybody needs a massage." Lorenzen can be contacted via cell phone at 309-297-0569 and Reed at 309-368-5675.
