Hats Off To You!

I think we are all totally impressed with the growth of the Henderson County Retirement, Inc. in Stronghurst and its announcement of being selected as one of three in downstate Illinois to receive license for Oak Wood Estates as a Supportive Living Facility.

That's due to a great board of directors led by Diana Doran and to Administrators Richard Clifton and Bobbi Tabscott and staff. Our hats off to each of you for this and all your foresight and hard work.

Also, hats off to the West Central Elementary School Principal Dale Buss, his staff and each of the special teachers for making West Central Elementary shine in Illinois as a "Spotlight School."

Also, hats off to West Central Supterintendent Ralph Grimm, Board President Dr. Lonnie Brent, and the West Central Board of Education for their excellence in wise management of School District and taxpayers dollars that is keeping West Central out of the financial crises so many others are faced with.

As for Illinois, they could benefit by following your lead, and after the unbelieveable passage of this week's monumental ObamaCare Health bill in Congress, it just might be helpful if Supt. Grimm and his staff would travel to Washington D.C. and offer a 101 Financial class on how NOT to bankrupt America, to our President Barack Obama and his followers who voted this massive financial burden onto the backs of working Americans. Once you herd them up into the classroom, explain to those who voted for this bill, that when acting like sheep, you can easily be led astray.
