Newspaper editor releases debut novel 

MARIAN – Peter Spitler, editor of the Pinckneyville Press and Du Quoin Weekly, has written and published his first novel, “Tango Atlantica.”

Spitler, of Murphysboro, is a familiar name to southern Illinois newspaper readers in Du Quoin, Randolph County and beyond, known for incisive local journalism covering everything from sports to history to courtroom drama.

The book is a fictional take on events leading up to the creation of "Project Skywater," a 1961 geoengineering project funded by the U.S. government that proved it is possible to make artificial changes in the atmosphere.

With scientists on that project predicting the ability to "create" a hurricane in 40 years, Spitler's timeline of the book, the year 2005, makes it plausible. 

The actual writing took about 18 months and three full drafts.

New columnist starts writing with ties to Rantoul's past 

RANTOUL – A Rantoul native and Rantoul Township High School graduate who lives in Washington, D.C., is now writing a column for the Rantoul Press.

J.A. Werner’s father was stationed at Chanute Air Force Base, and eventually her parents retired in Rantoul. She left the area in her 20s and moved to Washington, D.C., after visiting her friend and her husband (also from Rantoul). She’s been there ever since.

Over the years, her visits to Rantoul have diminished, especially with the death of her parents. “The pull to drive through Rantoul when I'm in the area always starts with that optimistic smile and ends with a sad heart,” Werner said. “So much has changed.”

Her mother used to write a column for the Rantoul Press called “Chirp and Chatter,” but she found the archives didn’t go back far enough to find any of the columns. She then saw a request for a columnist.

“My nostalgia kicked into overdrive, as I wondered if maybe I could follow in my mother's footsteps,” she said. 

Appropriately, Werner’s column is called “Chirp & Chatter 2.0,” in which she’ll write about the community’s rich history.

She is the self-published author of "The Cellomaker" series.

“At least we'll still have that,” English said.

Second retirement for veteran Pana News-Paladium reporter 

PANA – Anticipating her retirement on her 80th birthday in September, co-workers at the Pana News-Palladium told veteran reporter Millie Meyerholz that she would need to download her brain to a hard drive.

Though she did stay a few weeks past her birthday, Meyerholz retired, for the second time, after 53 years in the news business with the PN­P, on Oct. 29. She continues to be a correspondent for the paper. When asked what she would miss most about being in the newsroom, Meyerholz did not hesitate.

"My fellow workers and the people who come in,” she said. “Even the people in the courthouses – judges, state's attorneys, and staff. It's like an incredible number friends."

Meyerholz is an award-winning journalist, receiving accolades from the Illinois Press Association for feature stories written through the years. She’s been co-recipient of Volunteer of the Month from Peoples Bank & Trust of Pana, and Best Demonstrators at Pana Chautauqua Days, involving Pana Pioneer Heritage Guild activities.

She admits she started off humbly. Spending parts of her childhood in both Pana and Ramsey, she first worked as a sales clerk at Ben Franklin and waitressed at restaurants in Pana, Ramsey and Vandalia. She also was a clerk at a small grocery in Ramsey. Then Meyerholz broke into the news business ­ as a reporter for WPMB radio. She segued right into writing as a correspondent for the Pana News-Palladium in 1966 and the Vandalia Union-Leader from 1967 to 1972.

In the spring of 1972, she was offered a part-time job with the PN­P and hired full-time by fall.

Though Meyerholz is probably best known for her pieces on Pana area history and her “Here 'Tis” column, she has long been familiar with the police beat and courthouse news in multiple counties.

"I have sat through murder and government theft trials and other profound criminal hearings in Christian, Shelby and Fayette county courthouses and federal court in Springfield,” she said. “My work has taken me through joyous occasions, the madcap, and grievous incidents. What has made me most happy is writing feature stories about people and places, today and yesteryear subjects. I consider them the heart of the surrounding community."

Though she began as a news correspondent, she has worn many hats and carried several titles at the PN­P, including photojournalist and senior reporter, the title with which she retired this time, and which was bestowed long before her first retirement ­ officially in February 2005.

When former Editor Tom Latonis asked her to come back part-time in March 2007, she was still attending Lake Land College. She graduated in 2009, at age 69, summa cum laude with a degree in liberal arts.

Illinois Conference of Churches response to the Virus and the

Re-opening of the State

CONTACT: Pastor Walter Carlton
May 19, 2020
For Immediate Release

The Leadership Team of the Illinois Conference of Churches (ICC) believes sheltering-in-place guidelines save lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. We support careful, evidence-based steps to re-open the economy.

We believe that the health and safety of our wider community rises above individual autonomy in this unprecedented global emergency.

Limiting public excursions for anything but essential purposes and exercise and the wearing of masks in public while practicing social distancing are practical ways of showing respect for the communities where we live and serve.

But we don’t like it.

Those we love and serve are hurting

We grieve the myriad losses our communities are experiencing, not the least of which is the loss of life. Even in the midst of this crisis, more have died in this country from the coronavirus than in the Vietnam War. Business owners, closed now for weeks, wonder how long and if they can hold on. Teachers and parents are struggling with teaching from home. Our front-line workers have held the line steadily with grace and courage. While some families are enjoying down time and togetherness, economic and social stresses are tearing others apart. Our state must rely on science-based directives so that we will properly protect the people who live here.

While the CARES Act, unemployment benefits, and other programs are helping some, many people fall through the cracks. Small businesses, the homeless, the seriously disabled are struggling. There is evidence that the fault lines of race and economic disparity that have always divided our communities may widen. The pandemic has caused many problems for Black and Brown people because of employment as essential workers. Many are not eligible for the stimulus money or unemployment. Health care is not an option for part-time workers while pre-existing medical conditions plague Hispanics and African-Americans.

While we do not know what science will indicate about coming back together for worship, movies, concerts, and even haircuts, we are hopeful that human kindness, not to mention the grace of God, will flourish just as wildly as springtime is blooming across our state

We are in prayer for our beloved state and her people, particularly mindful of those whose lives and livelihoods are most endangered.

Retired teachers to mentor students virtually

CONTACT: Nathan Mihelich, IRTA
(217) 481-6915
April 6, 2020
For Immediate Release

(April 6, 2020 - Springfield, Ill.) Members of the Illinois Retired Teachers Association, a statewide association of retired educators, their families and supporters, are volunteering during this COVID-19 pandemic to assist students tackling the unprecedented challenge of finishing the school year at home.

“We want to help students learn,” said John Flaherty, a former high school and special education teacher and current president of the Illinois Retired Teachers Association. “Our members are ready to help students build their learning skills and tutor in highly advanced subject areas like chemistry and mathematics. For elementary students, self-paced and self-directed learning is a foreign concept. A teacher-mentor will help students take their own initiative and focus their learning at their own pace.”

Parents desiring to match their student with a retired teacher may sign up on the Association’s website, www.irtaonline.org. Mentors are on a first come, first serve basis. Mentors will meet with students in virtual environments. Mentorships will last from now until the end of the school year or June 1st. Mentorships are at the sole discretion of the teacher-mentors.

“A retired Illinois public school teacher’s depth of knowledge is so great, it may be just what parents need to energize their children into at-home students,” Association Executive Director Jim Bachman said. “Retiree-mentors can specifically target aspects of learning that need the most attention, whether it’s mathematics, science, history, writing or reading.”

“Younger students may simply need help reading a story; other students will need advanced tutoring. If we retirees can find a way to help, we will,” Flaherty concluded.

IRTA encourages former teachers, spouses and supporters of teachers to join the Association. Learn more, join or renew your IRTA membership today at https://www.irtaonline.org.




Watch your well-being during coronavirus distancing


By Graham A. Colditz

Siteman Cancer Center

For Immediate Release


Daily life has changed to an amazing degree in the last few weeks. As individuals and communities work to contain the spread of COVID-19, one major adjustment for most of us personally is that we now spend much more time at home. This form of physical distancing, or sheltering in place, limits contact between people, which can help curb the infection’s spread.

As necessary as this distancing is, it is a change that can also be stressful, tedious and isolating, among many other things. So, as we all work to get used to our new and, ultimately, temporary reality, here are eight ways to look after your health, your well-being and yourself during these unique times.

Be kind to yourself. The great thing about physical distancing is that by doing nothing — just staying inside — we’re doing something really important. Despite what you may see on social media, you don’t need to be writing a novel, conducting your children in a symphony or even reorganizing your sock drawer — unless you really want to. Be kind to yourself, and just take time to figure out what works best for you and your family.

Take a break from the news. Even in normal times, the sheer volume of news can feel overwhelming. These days, it’s even worse. So, be sure to carve out chunks of the day when you take a rest and shut off the news and pandemic-related social media feeds. Pick up a book. Stream a TV show. Play a board game. The news will still be there when you get back to it.

Keep up healthy food choices. When our regular routines are upended, our food choices can be, too — and often not for the better. A healthy diet can be a good way to maintain some normalcy, help keep the immune system working well and keep calories in check during these times when we’re less active and may feel urges to eat because of stress or boredom. When stocking up at the grocery store, focus on nourishing and filling foods, such as whole-grain breads and cereals, brown rice, fruits and vegetables (frozen, canned or fresh) and beans. And if you buy sweets and less-healthy foods, store them out of sight so they’re less tempting. With the economy hard hit, food insecurity can also be an issue for many. For food assistance, or to donate, contact food banks in your area, or visit feedingamerica.org.

Keep moving. Although gyms are closed and exercise classes canceled, it’s still important to stay physically active. It can take a little extra creativity and more planning than before, but the payoff in energy, mood and overall well-being make it well worth it. YouTube is a great source for free yoga, dance and cardio videos. Exercise apps are another option. And, for most people, getting outside for a walk or bike ride is still allowed (while keeping a safe distance from others). Don’t worry about hitting specific goals, just try to fit something in on most days. You’ll be happy you did.

Stand more. This can sound a bit odd. But, on top of staying active, try to make an effort to stand more than you normally would when you’re at home. In our normal days before COVID-19, it’d be rare to sit for most of the day. Going to class, walking to meetings, doing errands or spending time with the kids, we were on our feet a good amount. Now, while most of us are spending much more time at home, we’re probably also spending much more time sitting. Long term, sitting too much is bad for health, and short term, it can sap some of our energy and just make the long days at home feel even longer. So, try to work some standing breaks into your schedule. Set a timer that chimes every half hour to remind you to get up for a short leg stretch. Or try standing when watching TV shows, working on your computer or playing with your pet.

Stay connected — virtually. While we may no longer be able to meet up with friends and colleagues in the real world, we can still stay connected through technology. Host a trivia game over group video chat, share recipes via text message or email, or just pick up the phone and have a long talk with your best friend. The options are wide open for making connections.

Check in with your health-care provider if you have an existing medical condition such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer. See if there are any changes you should make during this time, such as rescheduling appointments, extending prescriptions or connecting remotely by telehealth rather than in person. Because COVID-19 can be more serious in some people with pre-existing diseases, it’s also especially important to follow recommendations for keeping safe, such as staying at home, avoiding groups and close contact with others, keeping surfaces clean and washing hands frequently.

Look after your mental wellness. This can be a time of stress, anxiety and loneliness for many people. So, as you’re looking after your physical health, it’s extremely important to also look after your mental and emotional health. Try to keep up with those things that can help with mood: physical activity, mindfulness and meditation, and connecting with friends using technology. Many people also need professional help. So, don’t be shy about calling a health-care provider or visiting the National Alliance on Mental Illness (nami.org) for resources. If you ever feel you’re in crisis, call 911 and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) immediately.

We’ll get through this together, even as we’re safely distancing ourselves for now.

It’s our health. Let’s take control.

Illinois Independent Pharmacies Launch
Their Own Medicare-D Plan This Fall

Newly Licensed Indy Health Insurance Company Aims to Restore Trust with Independent Pharmacy-Owned
Medicare Part D Plan

SPRINGFIELD, IL (March 16, 2020) – Who better to design a patient-centered, pharmacy-friendly pharmacy benefit plan than a pharmacist?
That’s the premise behind a new Medicare-D plan making its debut this fall thanks to a group of independent pharmacies and pharmacy organizations who got sick of being pushed around by the largest pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), deciding instead to take matters into their own hands. 
The result is Indy Health Insurance Company, newly licensed and on track to roll out its first plan offering this October when Medicare open enrollment begins.
"Ours is a 100% independent pharmacy and independent pharmacy organization-owned plan built on a network of 22,000 pharmacies across the country," said Indy Health Chair Laura Atkinson. "We envision a more transparent, affordable, cost effective alternative for independent pharmacies and their patients."
Indy Health's Medicare-D plan will offer seniors an affordable prescription plan that pairs with their Medicare medical plan. Indy Health allows enrollees to receive their medications from their local community pharmacies in a preferred network that does not force the use of mail order or large retail chain pharmacies. “Participants may use their neighborhood pharmacy, and that pharmacy can provide mail service if needed, which is often restricted under other plans,” said Ms. Atkinson.
“It was important to us to protect patient choice,” said Todd Evers, Collinsville, Illinois-based pharmacist and board member, and managing partner for Indy Health.  “Community pharmacies are uniquely positioned to care for patients, meeting the same demands as the big-box retail pharmacies but with quality and attention to detail you’d expect from a community pharmacy.”
Under Indy Health, pharmacies will pay no direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees -- a type of “claw back” PBMs collect to offset Medicare plan member costs. In 2018 small pharmacies paid average DIR fees of $129,613 per store– an 87% increase from 2017 according to 2019 industry survey. DIR fees are a primary factor in the epidemic of community pharmacy closures. “The absence of DIR fees is a big win for independent pharmacies, who could move from surviving the current U.S. drug pricing crisis to thriving,” said Ms. Atkinson.
With approved licensure in Arkansas, Indy Health will expand to Georgia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Illinois, and has begun the application process with the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS). Upon CMS approval, Indy Health will begin enrolling patients in October 2020.

The Indy Health Medicare-D plan is owned by investors in 34 states, including Illinois.
About Indy Health:
The Indy Health team has over 616 combined years of experience in Medicare-D plans, Health Insurance, Med D Actuarial Health Insurance Law, and Pharmacy. The Indy Health team’s mission is to create a transparent Medicare-D plan that provides fair reimbursements for independent pharmacies as well as transparent pricing and affordable medications for consumers.
Through Indy Health Insurance Company, Medicare-D plan independent pharmacies will be able to create their own formulary, medication therapy management services and to negotiate their own rebates through an independently owned sustainable entity that provides them with equitable representation within the prescription drug system.  To learn more about Indy Health, including information about investment opportunities, please visit IndyHealthInc.com.
