Investing for Illinois / Treasurer's office feeling the pressure

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Wednesday, January 23, 2008

The uncertainty in world markets has created a ripple effect that reached early Tuesday into a third-floor room in a state government office building on Jefferson Street.


That's where a handful of state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias' employees trade and invest billions of dollars on behalf of local governments and the state's general fund portfolio.


In that room, the busiest part of every weekday happens during the first 20 or 30 minutes, starting promptly at 7 a.m.


By 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, for instance, the employees had invested $6.6 billion by trading U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements and U.S. government agency repurchase agreements.


"We just spent more money than most people will in their entire lives," said Mark Polistina , portfolio manager for the treasurer's office. "I shouldn't say 'spent.' We invested it."


He, Sue Roth and Garry Dierkes shared the duties of making a flurry of phone calls, tapping on computer keyboards and saying such things as: "Ninety-five. You're on the board."


"I don't expect today to be a very fun day," Polistina said just before 7 a.m.


Later, he explained that he meant he didn't think rates for U.S. Treasury securities would be very good Tuesday. And they weren't.


His prediction was based in part on the knowledge that foreign equity markets, especially in Asia, had dropped between 5 percent and 8 percent overnight.


"When people perceive issues in the economy ... people flock to U.S. Treasuries," he said. "They buy quality. The highest-quality security you can own is a U.S. Treasury."


As demand increases for U.S. Treasury securities, their yield decreases, Polistina said.


Yield on a two-year Treasury note, for instance, dropped 25 basis points from Friday's close to Tuesday morning, when it was 2.10 percent. A year ago, yield on a two-year Treasury note was 4.91 percent.


Such declining numbers translate into lower earnings on investments for local governments, which pool their money into short-term investments called The Illinois Funds, and for the state's general fund portfolio.


Governments use their investment earnings for a variety of purposes, such as improving schools and transportation.


"There are going to be drops in the rates that we're able to get from the marketplace, and we want to make sure we're doing everything we can," Giannoulias said in an interview later Tuesday.


"It's tough for us to control the market. But we're going to keep on being safe, liquid and as aggressive as possible," he said, adding that the three priorities are in that order, with "safe" topping the list.


Shortly after Tuesday's early-morning trading session ended, Polistina read - on a big-screen TV tuned to the CNBC channel and on a computer - that the Federal Reserve had cut a key interest rate by 0.75 percent.


"What we saw today was the biggest cut since 1984," Giannoulias said later. "That's going to have a significant impact on our investments and our revenue going forward, so it is a concern."


Area stocks - Stock 52-week high Tuesday close ;Ameren Corp. $55.00 $45.78 Archer Daniels Midland 47.33 40.19 Deere & Co. 94.77 83.15 Caterpillar 87.00 63.82 Horace Mann 23.23 17.09

Sherman considering options for new park

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Friday, March 6, 2009


Section: homepage


SHERMAN - The Sherman Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee is asking residents what facilities and features they want included in a potential new 40-acre community park.


The seven-member committee has set up a Facebook group that residents can join to submit their ideas. It also put together a form for the public to rank the top five amenities they'd like to see in a park in the village of about 3,700.


The committee will in turn compile a feasibility study for the new park, said village board member Jeff Mitchell, the committee's chair.


The feasibility study will include design options, layout and cost estimates, he said.


Mitchell and Village President Trevor Clatfelter emphasized that the village board has made no commitment or decision to build a new park, and that the committee was assembled to develop a plan for a possible facility.


Any decision on a park and its funding would be brought before the community for consideration and approval, Clatfelter said.


The committee also is collecting ideas for a new veterans memorial and gateway park that's being developed on Sherman's north side.


Mitchell noted that the desire for more parks ranked high on a village-wide survey distributed in late 2007 to update Sherman's comprehensive plan. The survey results showed nearly 43 percent of residents said they were willing to pay for more parks.


Parks and recreation opportunities also were identified as issues needing improvement during Sherman's participation in sessions for a Western Illinois University program called MAPPING (Management and Planning Program Involving Non-metropolitan Groups) the Future of Your Community, he said.


"Sherman's growing pretty rapidly, and we're at a point where our park system right now isn't sufficient to support the population and the amount of young families that we have," Clatfelter said.


He said one potential park site is a 40-acre tract in the area of the Old Tipton Estates subdivision by the village water tower that would be available for sale if funding becomes available.


For now, he said the village wants to hear residents' "wish lists" for such a park.


To collect ideas, Clatfelter appointed six community members - John Bryant, Brad Davis, Steve Mumaw, Krista Sherrock , Dan Underwood and Brad Welker - as well as Mitchell, who is a landscape architect, to the parks and advisory committee.


Clatfelter said he asked the committee to come up with park features, such as baseball and softball diamonds that can be used as tournament sites, that can draw people into the village and spur economic development.


"We kind of want to work backwards off of the premise of, "You figure out how many baseball diamonds are needed to host one of these good-sized tournaments and all the other amenities in there as well,'" he said.


Clatfelter and Mitchell also noted that public input boosts a community's chances of receiving park grants from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and other agencies.


The committee meets the first Monday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Sherman Village Hall, and the public is invited to attend. For those unable to, Mumaw has set up a Facebook group that people can join and submit their ideas.


Sherrock said suggestions the committee has received so far include baseball diamonds, soccer fields, bocce ball courts, a community center and a waking path.


The committee will consider these ideas, examine the costs and logistics involved and create a plan for the park.


"We're looking for a date somewhere around early summer to come back with a first draft plan on the park," Mitchell said.


Once the plan is complete, it will go to the village board's public buildings, grounds, parks and recreation committee and then on to the full board.


Amanda Reavy can be reached at 788-1525.


How to contribute


Those who want to submit the top five amenities they'd like to see in a Sherman park can pick up a form at the Sherman Village Hall, 401 St. John Drive. Residents also can join the Sherman Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee's group on Facebook to share their ideas. To do this, Facebook users must log in and type "Residents for Sherman Parks" in the search line. Once at the page, users may join the group and write their ideas in the comments section.

The Animal Protective League of Springfield and Sangamon County will observe "Be Kind to Animals Week," Sunday through May 13 by offering an opportunity for limited-income area residents to obtain stray-cat neutering procedures for only $10.


At the same time, APL also will offer a rabies inoculation for $5.


An unspayed cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing two litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter, can total 11,801 in just five years.


Five local veterinarians, including the Waggin' Tails vet, Heidi Britt- Sherrock , are volunteering to neuter the cats brought to Waggin' Tails during "Be Kind to Animals Week."


Appointments must be made for the neuterings. Those interested in taking advantage of this effort should call 753-2141 today through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.


Other veterinarians taking part in the effort are Richard Speck of Parkway Veterinary Clinic, Thomas Powell of Animal Medical Clinic, Rina Ward of Brewer Animal Hospital and William Wright of Capitol Illini Veterinary.


Because of the additional work involved on the part of Waggin' Tails staff members, the shelter will not be open to the public during the week of May 8-12.


Normal Saturday hours, 1 to 5 p.m., will resume May 13.


The Animal Protective League of Springfield and Sangamon County and its no-kill Waggin' Tails Shelter is an organization dedicated to caring for sick, stray and/or abused animals.
