I like Kelly's food and atmosphere, but I don't get the fascination everyone has with melted cheese.

Glad to hear that they are back open for business, and that everybody affected is going to be OK. (And yes, after reading this I'll admit I could go for several bowls of their cheese soup, heh heh heh.) If there is any tiny bit of a "silver lining" that can possibly come out of this unfortunate situation, I hope it's that QFD (and the members of the local news media) will take an opportunity…

And again you post, proving your ignorance. Being "raised around" guns proves nothing, and adds to the stupidity of your statements. You addressed none of what I said. It is not a "high-powered" rifle. It is in the .22 caliber category (.223). Most rifles are larger and more high powered. They are used for small game hunting and target, because of that fact, that are a smaller caliber. Cheaper ammo…

Who are you to decide what is necessary? That's a bogus argument as these are not the same weapons and this is about ammo. 30-06 or 223 tell me which is more lethal?

Adams County EMS service receives grant to replace equipment

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.
