Migraine....do you take all the deductions on your income tax returns that you "qualify" for? Im guessing yes, yet you are critical of others for doing the same thing. I don't disagree that maybe something is wrong with the guidelines but it is what it is and that's NOT the school system's fault. And Huggie....how do you know that no one checks what someone puts down? Im guessing…

People do change. If you're going to judge someone based on something they did 8 or 10 years, when they have to check the"yes" box to the question of, "Have you EVER been convicted of a felony?" Then I'm glad they're making this a law. I've been denied employment AND publicly humiliated when a potential employer looked through my application several years ago, and in front of everybody…

How stupid can a guy be. He just gets out of jail, and then pulls a dumb move like that. Looks like he's gonna be in and out of jail the rest of his life.

Migraine it's not just morally wrong its embarrassing. I know moms that lie about their income. They stand in line at the sign up table and giggle about it. Then they skip out to there brand new SUV like its no big deal. No one checks to see if what you wrote down is correct. No pay stubs, W-2s or income tax return needed. I don't have a new car and my kids may not be in dance, but at least…

Adams County EMS service receives grant to replace equipment

5 months, 1 week ago by Bryan Nichols

Money from Marion Gardner Jackson Trust will go toward defibrillators

The Adams County Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services will soon see new equipment thanks to a grant.

The Adams County Ambulance & EMS was awarded a $60,000 grant from the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust last week.

The money from the grant will be used to replace two sixteen year-old cardiac monitor/defibrillators with two new units. According to a release, the two new Physio-Control Lifepak 15 models will have expanded capabilities to meet current patient care requirements including sending EKG data to the Emergency Department and Cardiac Cath Lab. That would provide receiving physicians with a preview of the incoming patient’s condition.

EMS Chief Paul Davis said the Ambulance Service regularly uses grants to purchase much needed patient care and training equipment "to ensure we t support such expenditures."

He said the Adams County Ambulance & EMS has also received funds from other federal, state and local grant programs over past two or three years. In addition to the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust, other grant benefactors include ADM Community Cares, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Illinois Department of Public Health EMS Assistance grant, Enbridge, Adams Rural Electric Cooperative-Penny Power grant, and FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighter’s Grant.

Davis said Paramedic Kyle Dixon has been largely responsible for writing the grants and obtaining the extra funding.
