Ballots Still Not Available
In-person early voting at the County Clerk’s office and voting by mail throughout the entire state of Illinois will be delayed until around Feb. 16 as an objection appeal by a candidate is being reviewed by the courts. Only after this objection appeal has been resolved can the state send a final certified candidate list to all Illinois election authorities. Find out more.

Until this is rectified, you won't be able to view your ballot. I will send an email out as soon as the ballots are available for viewing.

Coyote Breeding Season
Coyote breeding typically peaks in late February and early March, the gestation period averages 58 to 63 days. Male coyotes can become more aggressive during this time of year, the long and short of it all is that coyotes always pose a risk to your dog (and other small pets). That risk increases during mating season.

You should also be mindful that clever coyotes learn the daily schedules of people and their pets. If you let your dog out every evening at 9 p.m., chances are that a coyote is well aware of your routine and is waiting in the shadows at 9 p.m. sharp. So change your schedule a bit, walk your dog on leash close to you, and keep a close eye on them at all times.

Strategies to keep your pets safe during coyote mating season * Never feed coyotes — Feeding endangers your family and neighbors as it lures coyotes into neighborhoods. * Keep unattended cats and dogs indoors or in completely enclosed runs, especially at night, and do not assume that a fence will keep a coyote out of your back yard. * Accompany your leashed pet outside. Make sure you turn on lights if it is dark to check your back yard for unexpected wildlife. * Keep dogs on short leashes while walking outside; the Division of Wildlife recommends a leash no longer than six feet. * Leave noisemakers on hand to scare away coyotes that may enter your yard, such as whistles and horns. * Yell, clap hands, blow a whistle and try to make yourself look larger if you have a close encounter with a coyote."
