CASA of West Central Illinois’ Executive Director, Kelly Radeke, has been selected by the National CASA/GAL Association to serve on its Rural Leadership Council. The purpose of the Rural Leadership Council is to advise and partner with

National CASA/GAL on policies, resources, and strategies that impact rural programs, bring a voice to National CASA/GAL’s work on developing a network-wide growth process and strategy, and to conceptualize and develop support systems, tools, and communications specific to the needs of rural programs.

“Over the past seven years, the leadership councils and National CASA/GAL have partnered in our efforts to strengthen and grow the CASA/GAL network, and most importantly, to generate better outcomes for the children we serve,’ said National CASA/GAL Chief Executive officer, Tara Perry. “We look forward to Kelly bringing her positive enthusiasm and support to our work and collaborating on the important efforts ahead.” Radeke will serve a two-year term with monthly meetings focused on the specific needs of rural programs.

Radeke joined CASA of West Central Illinois in April 2021. Prior to this, she spent over 18 years in nonprofit leadership. Radeke has her Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Lincoln College, and an Associates in Applied Science Degree in Business Administration and a Certificate in Accounting from Carl Sandburg College. Radeke’s extensive volunteer experience with the Galesburg Noon Lions Club, Galesburg Kiwanis Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Orpheum Theatre, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, Galesburg Business Network, Macomb Altrusa

Club, Galesburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Western Illinois Red Cross, and the United Way of Knox County helped her better understand the needs of the community and gain skills in collaboration and volunteer recruitment. Radeke was also chosen as Illinois CASA’s Staff Partner of the Year for 2023.

“It is an honor to have been invited to participate in the Rural Leadership Council. With over half of all CASA programs being rural based, it is important our specific needs are heard in the National CASA/GAL network,” said Radeke,

Executive Director, CASA of West Central Illinois. “Our program serves over 175 children in foster care each year in our four-county service area with over 40 volunteers, with many more children waiting for a CASA volunteer. I look forward to sharing the work being done in Central Illinois and helping to make the entire CASA/GAL program stronger.” said Radeke.

The mission of CASA of West Central Illinois is to speak up for and support the best interests of abused and neglected children in the court system. CASA is celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2024. CASA is always seeking new volunteers to help “Change a Child’s Story”! More information on how you can make a difference can be found at

City of Galesburg

On June 17 Aldermen approved a bid in the amount of $2,189,342 submitted by Brandt Construction Co. of Milan for the road repair. The contract will require the contractor to mill and resurface areas of deteriorated asphalt surface, replace bad sections of curb, and replace sidewalk and sidewalk curb ramps where necessary. 

The following locations will be repaired:

Losey Street from Broad Street to Seminary Street. 

Isle Royale Road from North Street to Losey Street.

Losey Street from Florence Avenue to Farnham Street.

Meadow Lark Drive from 250 feet east of Oriole Drive to Bluebird Drive. 

Bluebird Drive from Farnham Street to Oriole Drive. 

Flamingo Drive from Farnham Street to Oriole Drive. 

Robin Court from Oriole Drive to dead end.

Cardinal Drive from Oriole Drive to Meadow Lark Drive.

South Street from Academy Street to Kellogg Street. 

Canterbury Court from Winchester Circle to dead end. 

Buckingham Road from South Lake Storey Road to dead end. 

Buckingham Road from Whitehaven Circle to dead end. 

Whitehaven Circle from Buckingham Road to Winchester Circle. 

The projects will be funded through proceeds from “$5,005,000 General Obligation Bonds, Series 2023.” When approved earlier in 2023, the entire $5 million in bonds were designated to go to a community center. However, aldermen amended the bond allocation to allow:

Community Center costs $2,500,000.

Asphalt resurfacing projects $1,950,000.

Irwin Street storm sewer and street reconstruction $550,000. 


Following a push by Congressman Eric Sorensen (IL-17), Congresswoman Angie Craig (MN-02), and Congressman Chris Pappas (NH-01) to block a pay raise for Congress, the House Appropriations Committee scrapped plans to increase member pay in upcoming government funding legislation. 

“While I am working to lower costs for working families, the last thing Congress should be doing is increasing pay for members,” said Sorensen. “I’m glad to see congressional leaders heard our call to not give Congress a pay raise on the taxpayer’s dime. My neighbors sent me to Washington to make government work better for our region and I’ll continue to do that as a trusted voice for Central and Northwestern Illinois.” 

Sorensen previously joined his colleagues to call on congressional leaders to focus on lowering costs for working families instead of giving themselves a raise. 

Galesburg District 205

Eric Matthews, athletic director for Galesburg District 205 for the past six years, was unanimously approved as the new principal at Monmouth-Roseville High School at the June 18 District 238 school board meeting. Matthews will start his duties at Monmouth on July 22. 

The Galesburg Junior Senior High School Athletic Director position was posted June 20 in hopes to have a new athletic director candidate to present to the board of education by the July 8 meeting. 

HT Custer Park

The park renovations at HT Custer Park have been completed. There is a new playground, picnic shelter, restrooms, walking path, bicycle training area, rain/butterfly garden, and a parking lot. 

Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association

When it gets hot outside, pet owners need to remember to keep their dogs, cats, horses and any other beloved pets cool in the good ‘ol summertime!

“Consider if you had to live outdoors when the temperature gets hot outside, what would you do to try to keep cool?” asks Nicole Johnson, DVM, Pekin Animal Hospital and President of the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association (ISVMA).

“Pet owners need to think of more than just how they’re going to keep cool when they have to be outside: What about your dog or cat when you take them for a walk or to enjoy the backyard? Or any outdoor animals that call ‘outside’ home? Every pet owner needs to think about their pet’s safety in any weather, and summer is no different” says Dr. Johnson.

Here are some helpful tips Dr. Johnson suggests pet owners follow as the temperature outside rises:

  • Never leave a pet in a hot car. Within a few minutes, even with windows rolled down, the heat in a car soars into triple digit temperatures!

  • Hot walks on outdoor surfaces. If a sidewalk or parking lot would be too hot for you to walk on barefoot, it’s too hot for your dog to walk on, too. Pavement baking in the summer sun can burn tender paw pads. Walk them in the cooler grass and look for shaded areas in which to walk. Also schedule walks in cooler times of day, like early morning or evening hours.

  • Keeping cool. Regarding shade, make sure that when your pet is outdoors that it is in a shady area, especially in the heat of the day. Bowls of frequently changed cool clean water also help keep the temperature manageable and water parasites at bay.

  • Plants beware! There are a number of poisonous decorative plants that may be in your yard. Some are hazardous to animals. Research what is in your yard that may be harmful to your pet. Also keep fertilizers and other yard chemicals out of your pet’s reach.

  • Avoid drowning hazards. Have a swimming pool or water feature in your yard? Make sure you’re around to supervise your pet so that they remain safe from drowning. Or block pet access to the pool or water feature. Consider using a pet life jacket anytime your pet is near water or in a boat.

  • Avoid heat stroke! Pets with thick fur, who are overweight or have respiratory issues are especially prone to heat stroke. Consider giving your pet’s fur a summer cut and brushing him or her frequently.

  • Window and door safety. Make sure open windows or patio doors have screens on them or keep open windows/doors closed altogether.

The Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association (ISVMA) predicts, monitors and confronts issues that affect the licenses of Illinois veterinarians. More than 1,900 ISVMA member veterinarians, veterinary students and Certified Veterinary Technicians depend upon the representation and services provided by the ISVMA. Their participation ensures the continued strength of the veterinary profession in Illinois, advancing the well-being of veterinary medical professionals, the public and the environment.

The Weatherization department at WIRC-Community Action Agency (WIRC) in Macomb received two awards of excellence at a recent state-wide conference. The first award recognized that the department placed 3rd out of 30 other weatherization departments across Illinois for excellence in completing projects and spending their budget. Tim Manock, Weatherization Coordinator at WIRC, personally received the second award of Excellence in Leadership.

Weatherization is a social service program that helps income-eligible homeowners with making their homes safer and more energy efficient by eliminating heat loss and air infiltration areas in the home. Examples of improvements include sealing cracks, insulating attics, repairing windows and doors, or other similar projects.

WIRC’s five-person weatherization team received the two awards from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) in June 2024.

This is not the first time that WIRC’s Weatherization Team has been recognized at the state level. In August 2023, they received an Exceptional Performance Award from DCEO. That award was given for their outstanding accomplishments in serving communities in Hancock, Henderson, Fulton, Knox, McDonough and Warren counties. Manock wants to acknowledge that he and his team members are thankful for the partnerships they have with local contractors to be able to help as many eligible homeowners as possible each year.

Funding for the Home Weatherization program at WIRC is provided through a grant by the Illinois DCEO.

WIRC-Community Action Agency is a nonprofit that helps people and communities in multiple western Illinois counties.

The Agency is one of over 1,000 community action agencies across the United States working to end poverty.

WIRC offers a wide range of social service and community development programs to improve the quality of life in their service area. To learn more, call WIRC’s Macomb office at (309) 837-2997 or Galesburg office at (309) 837-5115, find them on social media, or visit the website WIRC is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
