worked for seibert roofing for a week or two, they picked me up at the labor ready pkg lot. parked at their place after first day, car worked then. summer/fall of 06' I think. worked at a house just west of veterans, next to mda bldg, tgif's, srs, back there. residential, think the couple were teachers. one older guy and a younger guy. younger guy went to shg, i think. exposure on job, everyday, tried to stay out of it. not worse than any other job though. paid 10$/hr.

 

something strange was going on though, couldn't put my finger on it. waiting to see if it was going to rain, we waited in a trailer on the company property (also someone lived there, out west of town, off w washington, i think) an expensive camera with a long lens was on the table. possibly insurance defense investigators. might be nothing, but they seemed strange.

 

VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT BY JUVENILE COURT

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - November 18, 1987

Volunteers are needed to serve on behalf of abused, neglected and dependent children for a new program at the Juvenile Court of Sangamon

 

County.

 

The Court Appointed Special Advocate program trains volunteers in court procedures. The court then assigns the volunteers to cases of children who have been abused or neglected.

 

Each volunteer follows the case of a child, helping the court to move the child into a permanent home as quickly as possible.

 

The first training session will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Jury Room of Courtroom C, the Sangamon County Building.

 

Anyone interested should contact Sonia Siebert at 522-3923 or 546-5778.

Walkers step up against violence

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - October 20, 2002

Author: KRISTY HESSMAN Staff Writer

 

In one sentence, Norm Langhoff reminded participants at Saturday's Walk Against Violence Everywhere of the magnitude of the problem they were taking a stand against.

 

"In the two hours it took for this walk, 240 to 300 women have been battered," said Langhoff, who works with Sangamon County's 7th Judicial Circuit Court on family and domestic violence issues.

 

But Langhoff also offered hope for his audience, "We are going to have an impact on this problem," he said.

 

More than 50 members of the community pulled on their sneakers and braved the chilly morning air to attend the walk at Washington Park aimed at raising awareness for domestic violence.

 

"This walk is a community effort to stop (violence) in our lives, we will not tolerate any piece of this," said Bernadette Jones, director of Preventing Abusive Relationships Inc. and the organizer of the walk.

 

While statistics on domestic violence are not always accurate because of the number of cases that go unreported, Sonia Siebert , a facilitator and court liaison, said she thinks the number of cases in Sangamon County has gone up because of more focused legislation to combat the problem.

 

"We had close to 4,000 cases in court last year ... but what we see in court is only the tip of the iceberg."

 

After the one-mile walk through Washington Park, Langhoff and a number of other speakers talked about various types of violence that are often ignored.

 

Kathleen Quinn, who works for the state Department of Aging, described the abuses that occur against the elderly.

 

"People use the elderly like an ATM," Quinn said. She said it is common for relatives to financially and physically abuse their elders to feed their own additions, such as drugs or gambling. "It is the most hidden form of family violence," she said.

 

Speakers also talked about child abuse and the effect that domestic violence has on children.

 

Posted signs and speakers reiterated that children who grow up in homes with domestic violence often continue the cycle. "Seventy-three percent of men abusers were abused at home," one speaker said.

 

The effect domestic violence has on children is something Helen Tolan, Sangamon County regional superintendent of schools, has seen first-hand in school programs like Project Success and the Homeless Program.

 

"It is something we need to bring out and talk about in public," said Tolan, who is running for reelection. "If we don't stop the cycle our kids are never going to find success."

 

This is the second year the walk took place in October in coordination with Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Organizers said they were pleased with the turnout, which was more than three times as many as last year.

 

Jainean Tamam, of Springfield was one of the newcomers. "I heard about it yesterday and wanted to represent the Islamic community by saying we are against violent action."

Caption: Zach Gosteli, left, and James Rapozo carry the banner and lead more than 50 people Saturday in the Walk Against Violence Everywhere in Washington Park. The walk, sponsored by Preventing Abusive Relationships Inc., was held as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

SIEBERT - STERNSTEIN

 

SHORT SUBJECTS -- MIKE SIEBERT, new owner of Granny's restaurant (it becomes "Siebert's Sandwiches, Soups & Sweets" Monday), has switched to Gelato Unoice cream, the locally produced gourmet brand. Fifty gallons of the old brand of ice cream Siebert had on hand were donated to Ronald McDonald House

 

GELATO ICE CREAM COMPANY SOLD

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - January 20, 1991

Edition: M1,M2

Section: BUSINESS

Page: 51

Springfield's 5-year-old gourmet ice cream company, Gelato Uno Inc., has been bought by MIKE HAYES, a former management consultant with the local

 

accounting firm Kerber, Eck & Braeckel.

 

Hayes, who lives in Jacksonville, said he'll initially focus the company's efforts on expanding its private label manufacturing business and food service sales. Gelato's super-premium ice cream and sorbet, packaged under the Gelato Uno name, will continue to be available for retail purchase in the area.

 

The company, purchased from George Karpman and Michael Sternstein, will operate under the name GELATO MIDWEST INC. and will continue to manufacture at the company's plant on East Princeton Avenue.

 

Hayes recently completed an intensive course in ice cream manufacturing at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

 

In addition to packaging Gelato Uno for sales in more than 150 grocery and convenience stores in the Midwest, the company sells ice cream in bulk to restaurants, ice cream shops and institutions.

 

Hayes also plans to make the product available by the scoop at various locations and during summer events.

 

Gelato Uno is made using specially designed Italian equipment that injects very little air into the ice cream mix, resulting in a richer, creamier ice cream with more weight by volume than others.

 

It has won several competition awards, including three blue ribbons at the Illinois State Fair.

 

The company was started in 1986 and originally was called Gelato di Roma Inc

Durr named head of Sangamon County Jail

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Wednesday, February 2, 2005

Author/Byline: JASON PISCIA STAFF WRITER

Section: CITY/STATE

Page: 9

A longtime Sangamon County Jail officer has been chosen to lead the facility.

 

Lt. Terry Durr was named by Sheriff Neil Williamson to take over as the jail's superintendent.

 

Durr assumed his new position Monday, replacing Bill Doster, who resigned effective Friday.

 

Durr, 47, began working at the jail as a correctional officer in 1992 and worked his way up to sergeant and lieutenant.

 

Most recently, Durr spent the last four years in charge of the professional standards division, which investigates complaints that arise from the jail.

 

 

Williamson said Doster, who couldn't be reached for comment, resigned "on his own accord."

 

 

Doster served two stints as the Sangamon County Jail superintendent. The first was from January to December 2000. He then left to work for less than a year as director of the Regional Institute for Community Policing in Springfield.

 

Doster returned to the jail superintendent's position in September 2001.

 

 

Before getting hired by Sangamon County, Doster served as police chief of Kankakee from 1994 to 2000.

 

 

Prior to that, Doster was a lieutenant colonel with the Illinois State Police, serving as head of the agency's Division of Criminal Investigation.

 

"He had a brilliant career in law enforcement," Williamson said.

 

 

Meningitis may have caused fatal fall / Jail inmate's death ruled an accident

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Thursday, March 7, 2002

Author/Byline: CHRIS DETTRO and SARAH ANTONACCI STAFF WRITERS

Section: NEWS

Page: 1

The Sangamon County Jail inmate who died last month after collapsing at the jail had meningitis, Sangamon County Coroner Susan Boone said Wednesday.

 

A coroner's jury ruled the death on Feb. 14 of Bennie Lee Jones, 30, an accident after hearing testimony from Sgt. Terry Durr , a jail administrator, and watching a videotape of Jones' fall on Jan. 28.

 

Jones had been by himself in a prone position under an open stairway and got up to watch a television in the Cellblock D dayroom when he fell backward, striking his head on the floor. He was admitted to St. John's Hospital after the fall. Two days later, he lost consciousness and was put on life support.

 

Boone told the seven-person jury that an autopsy performed by Dr. Kent Harshbarger indicated that Jones had died from "cerebral edema due to blunt force injury to the head." She said a subsequent examination of Jones' brain revealed inflammation from meningitis.

 

Meningitis is an infection of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, typically spread by contact with nose or mouth secretions from an infected person. Symptoms often include some combination of sudden onset of fever, severe and persistent head and muscle aches, neck stiffness, nausea, a skin rash and excessive drowsiness or confusion.

 

The potentially fatal disease can follow infection by a number of bacteria and viruses.

 

Bacterial meningitis is the more contagious of the two forms.

 

Boone said it had not been determined what type of meningitis Jones had, nor how long he might have had it. There was no indication when the results of those tests will be available.

 

"It was enough to cause him to fall," she said.

 

Jones was transferred to the jail from Graham Correctional Center in Hillsboro on Jan. 23 to face sexual assault charges.

 

Tony Sacco, chief deputy of Sangamon County, said the jail's nurse has informed the staff that meningitis, if contagious, has an incubation period that has already expired.

 

"No one has shown any symptoms," he said. "We aren't doing anything at this point other than informing people what happened."

 

Sheriff Neil Williamson said he found out early Wednesday that Jones had had meningitis and informed Dr. Joseph Maurer, who provides medical services to the jail.

 

"We just have to wait on the final test results to see what kind he had," Williamson said. "I hope it's not going to be another 21/2 weeks to find out what kind it was."

 

Aggie Hayner, spokeswoman for St. John's Hospital, said the hospital was notified Wednesday morning that Jones had had meningitis. She said the hospital's infectious- control officer has notified the appropriate people.

 

"We didn't know he had meningitis when he was here, but with all patients in the hospital, we practice universal precautions and that was the appropriate thing to do in this event," she said.

 

Carl Madison, president of the local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, earlier had asked the FBI to investigate Jones' death following a request from Jones' family.

 

"The role of the NAACP in this is to try to answer the unanswered questions for the family," he said, adding that the FBI told him Wednesday it would continue its investigation "until the autopsy is complete."

 

"I think it is unusual that an inquest was done before an autopsy and all the tests are completed," Madison said. "There are still parts of the brain that need to be examined to complete the autopsy, and it is somewhat premature to suggest that meningitis made Bennie Jones fall."

 

However, Boone said the autopsy was completed the day it was performed - Feb. 14. A two-week waiting period was required before tests could be performed on Jones' brain, and those tests revealed the meningitis, she said. Remaining tests are to determine what type of meningitis Jones had.

 

Williamson said the finding that Jones' death was the result of an unaided fall and that meningitis contributed to it "is consistent with what we've been saying all along."

 

The jerky jail videotape, which records a frame every six seconds, shows other inmates playing cards and watching television in the dayroom. Jones arises from underneath the stairway, then suddenly arches his back and falls.

 

The other inmates hesitate before moving toward Jones, then go to his aid. One inmate, later identified as Cortez Gillum, Jones' cellmate, takes off his shirt and puts it against Jones' head. Durr said Jones was bleeding from the ear and that Gillum tried to stop the bleeding with his shirt.

 

Other inmates went to a call box and alerted jail personnel.

 

Durr said that on Jan. 29 he interviewed the other 15 inmates in the dayroom when Jones collapsed, and they all said that no one was around Jones in the minutes before he collapsed and that he had not been involved in any kind of altercation earlier in the day.

 

One inmate, Robert Thomas, told Durr that Jones had complained to him of having "a really bad headache" a couple of days before. Durr said the jail's medical department had no record of Jones complaining of any medical problem or turning in a form to the sick-call nurse.

 

The inmates agreed that Jones' head hit the floor with force.

 

"His feet and everything else came up off the floor," Durr said inmate Tyrone Lacey told him. "His head hit so hard, it shook the entire block."

 

Another inmate told Durr that Jones hit head-first and started shaking. "I thought he was dead when he hit the ground," the inmate said.

 

Durr said that in addition to the 24-hour video camera, jail personnel personally check the dayroom every 30 minutes. A control room operator has sight contact through a window and can see activity in the room on a video screen at all times, he said.

Lawsuit says jail inmate died after pleas for help ignored

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Friday, May 29, 2009

Author/Byline: JAYETTE BOLINSKI, THE STATE JOURNAL-REGISTER

Section: homepage

Sangamon County Jail inmate Maurice Burris writhed in pain, vomited and complained repeatedly to a jail nurse that something was wrong with him for three days before he finally was sent to a hospital, where he died, according to a federal lawsuit his family filed this month.

 

The suit claims Burris' pleas for help were ignored, and by the time he got proper medical attention it was too late.

 

Burris, 50, collapsed in the jail Dec. 5, 2007. He died of complications from a ruptured bowel on Dec. 12, 2007 at St. John's Hospital. He had been jailed Nov. 24, 2007, after an alleged stalking incident involving a former girlfriend.

 

The suit, brought by Burris' son Jacob, names Health Professionals Ltd., the company that contracted with Sangamon County to provide medical care to inmates at the time of Burris' death; Dr. Stephen A. Cullinan, chief medical director of HPL, who was physician on-call for the jail when Burris was sick; Lee Anne Brauer, a registered nurse who was medical director at the jail; Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson; jail superintendent Terry Durr ; and Sangamon County.

 

The suit goes into great detail about the events at the jail leading up to Burris' death.

 

According to the suit, Burris started having severe stomach pain and vomited repeatedly overnight Dec. 1.

 

On Dec. 2, Cullinan over the phone prescribed Mylanta, Zantac and Benadryl for Burris, asked that he be monitored and told the jail's medical director that he would be "fine," according to the suit.

 

Jail staff members reported later that day that Burris continued to be in pain and he continued to vomit. Brauer called Cullinan that evening, according to the suit, but Cullinan did not prescribe any new orders and again allegedly told the nurse Burris would be "fine."

 

Cullinan saw Burris in person the next morning. Surveillance video that day showed that Burris did not eat, vomited repeatedly, clutched his abdomen while in bed and was "exceedingly restless," the suit says.

 

About 1 a.m. Dec. 4, Burris again complained of severe pain, his abdomen was hard to the touch and his heart rate was elevated. Brauer told a correctional officer that Burris was "fine" and she would see him in the morning, according to the suit.

 

About 7 a.m. Dec. 4, Cullinan ordered basic blood work, but the suit alleges Brauer did not draw the blood because Health Professionals Ltd. "had not yet delivered to the jail supplies needed to carry out the order." (Health Professionals' contract with the Sangamon County went into effect Dec. 1, 2007, the day Burris began reporting problems.)

 

When Brauer reported the lack of supplies to Cullinan, he replied that "Burris would be fine and not to worry about it," according to the suit.

 

Burris collapsed just after 10 a.m. Dec. 4, "but no one noticed his distress," the suit alleges.

 

The lawsuit alleges that Brauer "had to be asked by jail staff three times before she would call for an ambulance." Burris' body was limp and his color was gray, and he developed cardiac arrest just after 11 a.m. He was taken to St. John's Hospital at 11:22 a.m.

 

At the hospital, Burris was diagnosed with an "acute abdomen," septic shock, cardiac arrest, a large amount of fecal material in his abdomen, a perforated ulcer and unrecoverable brain injury, according to the lawsuit. He died Dec. 12 of brain injury resulting from lack of oxygen.

 

"Had (Burris) been timely transferred to St. John's Hospital on Dec. 4, 2007, (he) could have received a CT scan to definitively diagnose his perforated ulcer and surgery to treat his perforated ulcer, which would have prevented his death," the suit reads.

 

According to the suit, HPL's policy was that an inmate could not be moved to a hospital unless it was a "true emergency" and the prisoner's life, limb or eyesight was in jeopardy. The suit contends that Burris's symptoms met all the criteria for treatment at a hospital.

 

HPL no longer works with Sangamon County, which now contracts with Advanced Health Care. Williamson on Thursday declined to comment on the suit.

 

Douglas Quivey, an attorney with Londrigan, Potter and Randle in Springfield, said the timeline of what happened to Burris at the jail is based on documentation from the jail. The Springfield firm and Joseph J. Madonia & Associates in Chicago are representing the Burris family.

 

"We obviously stand by what's in the complaint. It's shocking and I would say appalling, and the rest will come out in court," Quivey said.

Other deaths

 

Maurice Burris, a contractor and U.S. Navy veteran, was one of three inmates who died in Sangamon County Jail custody in 2007.

 

Inmate Bobby Ray, 38, died Sept. 28 after collapsing at the jail, and A. Paul Carlock, 57, who performed as "Klutzo the Clown," died Nov. 16 after refusing to comply with corrections officers and being shocked with a Taser.

 

Carlock's wife filed suit in 2008 against the jail, the county, two doctors and various jail employees, alleging Carlock's civil rights were violated. That case is still pending.

 

Ray's family also retained an attorney, but federal court records do not indicate that a suit has been filed in that case.

Auction changes hands - On Business

Herald & Review (Decatur, IL) - Friday, April 11, 1997

Author/Byline: Gary Minich

Section: Business

Page: D7

DEALER'S Auto Auction-Decatur has been sold to new owners for about $1.2 million. Dennis Thee of Indianapolis and Pat Stillman of Mannheim, Pa., bought both the Decatur auction and one in Springfield, Mo., earlier this month.

 

Thee said little will change here except the name. The new limited liability company formed by he and Stillman is Decatur Auto Auction LLC. Jeff Polen will stay on as manager and former owners Steve and Alice Polen will continue to be involved in operations, Thee said.

 

The new owners are both long-time car dealers.

Villa Rose's fence surprises neighbors / McArthur entrance briefly blocked

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Tuesday, March 13, 2001

Author/Byline: JASON PISCIA STAFF WRITER

Section: NEWS

Page: 1

A new fence built to block motorists from using the Villa Rose apartments' MacArthur Boulevard entrance led to confusion among Springfield officials and neighbors over the weekend.

 

The confusion eventually gave way to part of the fence being taken down and the entrance being reopened Monday morning.

 

Apartment representatives say construction of the wooden privacy fence, which began Friday, was an effort to begin remedying the crime problems that have plagued the 188-unit complex at 2715 S. MacArthur.

 

But some local leaders and residents in nearby Jerome, while glad to see those efforts moving forward, said they were surprised to see the fence go up. Shutting down access from MacArthur wasn't part of the remedy as they understood it.

 

Adding to the confusion was the fact that Villa Rose's owners apparently did not know they needed a city permit to put up the fence, meaning it was being built illegally.

 

Villa Rose personnel have been working with Springfield officials since at least last fall, following a string of crimes tied to residents of the complex.

 

Neighbors in Jerome have gotten involved in recent weeks. They are concerned because Villa Rose's other main entrance is off Iles Avenue, which lies within their village limits. More than 100 people filled the Jerome Civic Center Feb. 7 to talk about Villa Rose problems.

 

Villa Rose owners have agreed to make the complex safer by turning it into a gated community, including having a guard stationed at one of the entrances to monitor who's coming and going.

 

But the details of that idea seem to be the root of this past weekend's confusion.

 

Springfield Mayor Karen Hasara said that after a discussion about the gated-community idea last month involving various officials, she was under the impression an agreement had been reached.

 

The plan involved putting a guard station at the MacArthur entrance, where all traffic would have to enter and exit. In addition, a gate would be built at the Iles entrance in Jerome that could be opened for access only by emergency vehicles.

 

Others - including Steve Roth, a Jerome village trustee, and Judy Yeager, Springfield's Ward 7 alderman who represents Villa Rose - said they, too, were under the impression that was the rough idea of what was going to happen.

 

But as Villa Rose representatives were making plans to execute the idea, they began hearing concerns from tenants about shutting off access to Iles, said Michael Durr , the complex's lawyer.

 

Tenants did not want MacArthur to be the only access point to their apartments. The intersection of MacArthur and Villa Rose's driveway is not controlled by a traffic light, meaning vehicles trying to turn out of the complex will likely face long delays as they wait for traffic to clear.

 

The other entrance, however, empties onto the less-used Iles, which is controlled by a traffic light at the MacArthur intersection.

 

"In trying to accommodate and respond in good faith to the tenants' concerns, they went ahead and fenced off the MacArthur entrance," Durr said.

 

Villa Rose also was planning to move the guard station to inside the Iles entrance.

 

But the apartments' revised plan came to a halt after people starting seeing the fence blocking access from MacArthur.

 

After receiving several calls about the fence, city building and zoning inspectors visited the site Saturday afternoon. They cited the apartment complex for not having a building permit, Hasara said. The hired work crew continued to finish the job anyway.

 

Roth said Jerome residents became worried that the Iles entrance in their village would become even busier, since it would have been the only entrance point to Villa Rose.

 

Police and fire officials also voiced concern, saying they needed to have more than one way to get to the apartments.

 

After several calls over the next several hours, there was an agreement to take down the part of the fence blocking the entrance Monday morning. Sections of the wooden fence remain standing on each side of the driveway.

 

While many, including Hasara, said they were surprised to see the blockade go up, Durr said his client never made a formal promise to carry out the original plan.

 

"I would be very careful here not to say agreement," he said "I would say discussions."

 

Yeager said she also realizes the plan wasn't set in stone, although she said she didn't expect Villa Rose to so drastically deviate from it.

 

Nevertheless, city and apartment officials say they plan to go back to the drawing board to work out something.

 

The bottom line, Yeager said, is to find a way to protect the good people who live in Villa Rose and keep the bad seeds out.

 

"I look at this as a work in progress. I see this as a wee bit of a glitch in the system," Yeager said of the weekend confusion. ".. . I don't see that any permanent damage has been done.

 

"We just have to go at it a little bit slower and get a few more people involved."

 

Fire Chief Frank Edwards said he commends the apartment complex for getting an improvement plan moving, even though their initial try ended up to be a problem for his department.

 

"It's not that they're not trying to do the right thing," he said. "They are trying to do the right thing. It was just a lack of communication of everyone's part."

 

"I'm glad to see that they're moving and they're actually taking an initiative to try and improve the area," added Springfield police officer Kenny Winslow, whose beat includes Villa Rose.

Aldermen to vote on gating Villa Rose / Complex would hire security officer

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Tuesday, May 1, 2001

Author/Byline: JASON PISCIA STAFF WRITER

Section: CITY/STATE

Page: 9

The flow of vehicle and foot traffic through the Villa Rose apartments soon will be limited in an effort to stamp out criminal behavior that has plagued the complex.

 

Officials for weeks have talked about turning the apartments at 2715 MacArthur Blvd. into a gated community. Tonight, Springfield aldermen are expected to vote the plan into reality.

 

Once it's in place, the new setup will retain Villa Rose's two entrances - off MacArthur and off a portion of Iles Avenue near the village of Jerome.

 

Both access points will remain open during the day. But at night, motorists and pedestrians will be required to pass through the MacArthur entrance, which will be guarded by a security officer paid by Villa Rose. The guard automatically will allow in cars that have a Villa Rose parking permit. But other visitors arriving during the night must report their names and the names and apartment numbers of the tenants they are visiting.

 

The Iles Avenue entrance will be blocked by a large gate at night, although emergency personnel will be able to unlock the gate if necessary.

 

The resolution to be approved by the Springfield City Council indicates the nighttime hours will go into effect at 6 p.m. and last until 6 a.m. But apartment officials say they're still figuring out the exact hours of the limited access.

 

Loren Brown, regional manager of the company that owns Villa Rose, said he's thinking about extending the free-access hours to a little later than 6 p.m.

 

"We want to make sure it's convenient for the tenants," he said.

 

Villa Rose has been a thorn in the side of local law enforcement for some time. A string of crimes last summer and fall were linked to residents or visitors. The problems subsided with the arrival of cold weather.

 

Officials say the new gating system should help prevent the annoyances from cropping up again this year.

 

"This will help create a non-favorable environment for crime and other objectionable activity, not only in the Villa Rose complex but within the entire surrounding neighborhood," said Michael Durr , a lawyer for the apartments.

 

Once the council gives the go-ahead, the guard house and gates can be installed in roughly 30 days, Brown said.

 

Villa Rose representatives and local officials, including Ward 7 Ald. Judy Yeager, have worked for several weeks to forge an agreement on how to make the apartment complex a gated community.

 

The process hit a snag in March, when Villa Rose managers decided to put up a fence that permanently blocked the MacArthur entrance. The move irked Jerome residents who did not want all of the apartments' traffic spilling onto Iles near their village. Springfield police and fire officials also voiced concern because there would be only one entrance.

 

In less than two days, the fence was taken down.

 

Jerome's village president, Steve Roth, said he's pleased Springfield and the apartment complex took an active role to improve the situation.

 

"With some of things that they've outlined, it's a major step in the right direction," he said.

33rd closes The 33rd Italian Battalion Pizza Co. restaurant at 1305 Wabash Ave. has been closed by Durrco Inc., which also owns the Tops Big Boy Coffee Shops.

 

According to Michael Durr of Durrco, the pizza operations "have at times diverted our attention away from our primary business" -- the Tops Big Boys. In addition, Durrco's lease on the property is soon expiring.

 

Durrco recently acquired the former Howard Johnson's restaurant on Dirksen Parkway and converted it to the city's third Big Boy.

 

Durrco will retain all recipes and formulas, systems and copyrighted names of the 33rd Italian Battalion and is not ruling out reentering the pizza business later, Durr said.

 

He said Durrco has not decided as yet whether to offer pizza through the Tops operations.

 

Lack of adequate parking during daytime hours prevented the firm from converting the pizza restaurant into another Tops Big Boy, he added.

Goleman won't join LLCC board

Lawyer finds problem with also having county seat

By BERNARD SCHOENBURG

POLITICAL WRITER

Published Thursday, April 26, 2007

Andy Goleman, who won election to the Lincoln Land Community College board of trustees last week, said Wednesday he will not take his seat.

 

 

 

 

 

"I'm just sick about this," Goleman said. "I really feel bad for all the people that worked for me. But I did what I thought was right."

Goleman also is a member of the Sangamon County Board. He said he checked before he circulated petitions to run for the LLCC board and was told three times by Sangamon County election officials that he could serve simultaneously on both boards.

However, a check with his lawyer after the election showed otherwise, Goleman said.

Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello, who oversees the county election office, said he got a somewhat different story from his employees. He knows of just one employee who talked with someone they thought was Goleman by telephone, and they didn't provide definitive information, Aiello said.

"We don't tell people they can or can't run for office," Aiello said. "That's not our job. ... We always advise people when they call us about legal advice or anything of this nature to consult with their attorney."

Trustees did not mention Goleman's situation during their monthly meeting Wednesday night at Menard Hall on the college's main campus. After the meeting, President Charlotte Warren said the school hasn't yet seen written notice of Goleman's inability to fill the seat.

Goleman and Subdistrict 2 winner Cinda Edwards of Springfield are scheduled to be sworn in on May 14. If Goleman is not seated on that date, trustees then will have 60 days to select a replacement who meets eligibility requirements, Warren said.

Warren would not speculate on who might be considered for the seat, although she said there's "no candidate waiting in the wings."

 

 

Goleman said he had his lawyer, Mike Durr, recheck the law following the election after people continued to ask if he was sure he could hold both positions.

 

 

Goleman said he spent about $8,000 on the LLCC race. Unofficial election night totals showed Goleman with 3,696 votes to 3,425 for Wilson.

Goleman said he decided to stay on the Sangamon County Board because he previously assured voters he would not leave that job.

Lynn Whalen, spokeswoman for LLCC, said the school's lawyer was checking to make sure what happens next, but she believes the board will appoint someone from Subdistrict 4, where Goleman won the election.

The confusion stemmed from a list of opinions on compatibility of offices that was provided by the Illinois attorney general's office.

Goleman said each time he checked with the office, he was shown an entry under the heading: "Junior College Board Trustee (see also Community College Board Trustee)," which states that a 1973 opinion found the college office to be compatible with being a county board member.

However, after the election, Goleman discovered that elsewhere in that document, two entries show the offices can't be held at the same time. Under the heading "County Board member," a 1994 opinion found that a county board member cannot also be on a community college board. The same case shows up under a heading "Community College Board Trustee (see also Junior College Board Trustee)," again indicating the offices are incompatible.

In the 1994 opinion, then-Attorney General Roland Burris found that holding both jobs could cause problems when, for instance, a community college contracts with a county for traffic enforcement or in connection with a tax increment financing district.

Goleman said he would not have run "if anybody had raised a red flag."

"Life is full of tough decisions," Goleman said in his statement, "and this has been one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make."

 

Grandview president drops plan to oust longtime police chief

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Author/Byline: Jayette Bolinski and Rhys Saunders, THE STATE JOURNAL-REGISTER

Section: breaking

Newly elected Grandview Village President Tracy Houser backed down from plans to fire longtime Police Chief Mike Feleccia after nearly two hours of emotional public input at the village board meeting tonight.

 

But the verbal fireworks didn't stop there.

 

As Houser's predecessor, Peter Ochs, addressed the board during his allotted time, he accused trustee Bob Shellhammer of illegally using village property for his own gain. Ochs handed the trustee a letter of resignation, which Shellhammer reluctantly signed before leaving the building less than an hour after the meeting's 6 p.m. start.

 

The board later voted 3-2 to accept Shellhammer's resignation, with trustees Mike Murphy and Karen Murphy casting the "no" votes.

 

The board unanimously agreed to table Feleccia's firing and referred the matter to the human resources committee for a future recommendation to the full board.

 

Houser, a politically independent first-time officeholder who was sworn in May 5, initially said he intended to appoint Rick Cathers police chief of the small municipality on Springfield's north end.

 

Cathers is a former Grandview officer and most recently was police chief in Thayer and a part-time officer in Southern View.

 

Cathers briefly made an appearance mid-meeting Tuesday but did not speak.

 

"Right now Mike Feleccia is still going to be the chief of police," Houser said about two hours into the meeting. "Everybody thinks I've got a vendetta against this guy. I do not have no vendetta against the man. I like the guy. I used to bowl with him.

 

"But there are some work ethics we're going to have to work on."

 

Trustee Vickie Kean repeatedly asked Houser if his intent to fire Feleccia had anything to do with the arrest of Tracy Houser three years ago during a landlord-tenant dispute involving his father, James Houser, a local landlord. No charges were filed.

 

James Houser was arrested by Grandview police in July 2008 on charges of criminal damage to property and criminal trespass to a residence.

 

"The only thing that stood between me and Houser Rental violating tenants' rights was me," Feleccia said. "We had an ex-police officer here (Cathers) who was disciplined for supplying Mr. Houser information about his tenants, and that is the officer he was proposing to bring back as chief of police tonight.

 

"The perception of that was, was he bringing somebody back who he could control?"

 

Feleccia said he hopes the citizens' voices were heard and that the group's overwhelming support for the veteran chief to keep his job will be taken into consideration.

 

The Grandview Village Board consists of six trustees: Shellhammer, Kean, Mike Murphy, Janice Bentley, Mark Woollen and Karen Murphy, who was appointed by Houser to fill a vacancy.

 

Houser also fired the previous village attorney, John Myers, and hired a new attorney, Roger Rutherford . Houser said he doesn't know Rutherford; however, some note that Rutherford was counsel for the village of Thayer, which is where Cathers has been police chief.

 

Houser said Tuesday he knew nothing about any connections between Rutherford and Cathers.

 

Houser told the gathered crowd, estimated at 60 to 80, his main issues with Feleccia, who's been chief since 1996, are that he does not support a neighborhood watch program and does not adequately do his job.

 

Karen Murphy also knocked Feleccia for not getting behind neighborhood watch, as did two audience members who claimed Feleccia did not respond to a request for a home walk-through nearly seven years ago. Both women admitted to being related to Mike Murphy.

 

Feleccia said Karen Murphy has held a grudge against him because she thinks he treated a fellow officer poorly, and that he was responsible for the village not getting a state grant for the police department.

 

The grant, Feleccia noted, would have required the village to put up the money first and be reimbursed later by the state.

 

At the beginning of Tuesday's meeting, Houser was reluctant to allow public input, saying it was his decision to hire or fire the police chief.

 

"You do not have the authority to hire a chief of police according to our personnel policies," Kean told him. "That must be done through the human resources committee The board has all hiring and firing authority in the village of Grandview ."

 

When pressed for a ruling on the matter, Rutherford said he was uncertain whether Houser had the authority to fire Feleccia or if the matter had to go through the human resources committee and eventually the board.

 

Houser then relented, saying he was still learning the job.

 

"I know everybody doesn't like me," he said. "I know a lot of people didn't vote for me. I'm still going to be this mayor for four years, and if you're going to ask for my resignation, I'm not going to give it to you. I'm going to stick it out. It's a learning process."

 

Kean replied that Houser was "learning at the expense of some of the best people in this village."

 

Grandview village employees work under year-to-year contracts. Those contracts are not up until May 31. Feleccia told The State Journal-Register he will consider legal action if he is fired.

 

Rhys Saunders can be reached at 788-1521. Jayette Bolinski can be reached at 788-1530.

LA CASITA MEXICAN RESTAURANT REOPENS

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Sunday, March 14, 1993

Edition: M1,M2

Section: BUSINESS

Page: 49

After a two-month hiatus, La Casita Mexican Restaurant, on Illinois 125 in Pleasant Plains, reopened last week.

 

The restaurant, which opened in 1990 as a complement to the adjoining Pueblo Southwestern Art Gallery, traditionally closes during the winter months.

 

That gives owner Lou Simpson time to travel to the Southwest. There, he goes on shopping sprees for the art gallery and researches new recipes for the restaurant.

 

Remodeling and maintenance projects also were undertaken over the winter.

 

Last winter, an addition doubling the size of the La Casita (Spanish for "little house") was built. This past winter, a larger bar was built in the cantina area, in addition to repainting the interior of the whole building, upgrading the kitchen and installing custom-built indirect lighting in the cantina.

 

This may be the last winter that the restaurant closes, Simpson said.

 

"I think the public is forcing us to stay open and that's good," he said.

 

Menu favorites are enchiladas, burritos, chimichangas, Tex-Mex steaks and chiles relleno. All main dishes can now be ordered a la carte or as a dinner platter with rice, beans and salad.

 

New to the menu this year is a Mexican or American breakfast. Breakfast items include huevos rancheros (fried eggs layered with tortillas, refried beans and salsa), breakfast burritos and fajita omelettes in addition to eggs, bacon, toast, and biscuits and gravy.

 

For now, the restaurant is open only on Friday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to midnight; Saturday, 7 a.m. to midnight; and Sunday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

Starting April 1st, the La Casita and the Pueblo will be open Tuesday through Sunday.

 

Opening Wednesday in the downtown area is Bedrock Bar & Grill, 225 E. Monroe St., just west of D.H. Brown's.

 

The restaurant is co-owned by Rick Wood of Chauffer Werks Limousine Service, 1608 S. Pasfield and Tim Nudo, a partner in Nudo Products, 2508 South Grand Ave. E.

 

*The manager is Mark Claycomb, formerly of On Broadway.

 

The building formerly housed Doc's Italian Sausage, which went out of business in November. Wood and Nudo moved in in December, gutted the building, and installed a horseshoe-shaped stone bar.

 

"It's modeled after the Flintstones," Wood said.

 

Monday through Friday, the bar will cater to the downtown breakfast and lunch crowd. Breakfast will be served from 6 to 10:30 a.m. and lunch from 10:30 to 2:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch deliveries also will be made to downtown locations.

 

Wednesday nights, "we're gonna be rockin'," Wood said. Tables are moved aside and WYMG's Dave "Keefer" Fulgham will DJ. The bar will remain open to 1 a.m. each week night and on Saturdays from noon to 1 a.m.

 

Mike Seibert's walleye fish dinners will be served on Fridays; pizza will be available on other nights.

 

Saturday night will feature live acoustic music.

MOUNT ZION STATE BANK & TRUST CO. IS OPEN, DOING FINE

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL) - Sunday, November 13, 1988

 

Mike Siebert , who began operating Granny's Kitchen restaurant at 1201 S. Second St. after leasing it last month, is changing the full-service restaurant's name to Siebert 's Sandwiches, Soups and Sweets. Start trying to say that three times real fast, and you may have it down by the official grand opening Dec. 5 through 10. Siebert already has added waitress service and several items, such as carp and walleye sandwiches, to the menu. The restaurant also is dropping all of its regular ice cream items and will instead serve Gelato Uno, the super-premium ice cream made in Springfield. Homemade pies baked daily also will be added to the dessert menu.

Siebert 's will become Gelato Uno's first "dipping store" in central Illinois.

Gelato Uno is undergoing a name change, too, from its original Gelato di Roma title.

George Karpman, one of the owners of the ice cream company, said new packaging with easier-to-read graphics (but still in the original red-and-black colors) already is in some stores.

"Uno means Number One," Karpman explained, "and our ice cream was fortunate enough to win three blue ribbons at the state fair and a `Best of Fest' award at the Decatur Celebration this year."
