Shelbina City Council Discusses Issue of Kids Walking on the Ice at the Lake

ember and other City officials were very concerned about the news that two boys were walking on the ice at the Shelbina Lake recently. This was discussed during Tuesday night’s meeting.
   Lake Issue
   Councilman Babe Simpson brought up the issue of two boys walking on the ice at the Shelbina Lake recently. When adults yelled at the boys to get off the ice, the kids ignored the calls and kept walking.
   Shelbina Police Chief Jerry Fenton said the police had a call about the situation and he would talk to the parents of the kids.
   It was noted that the water from the lake is used by the City of Shelbina and the water level tends to drop below the surface of the ice, making it much easier for it to break.
   The council’s obvious fears are that someone could break through the ice and get trapped under the surface. Fenton said he would have the police out there patrolling it more often. The council said it would hate to have to shut the entire lake down during the winter months.

The Shelby County R-IV School District will be benefiting financially from the installation and use of the Enbridge Pipeline that was constructed last year.
   According to R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex, the district will receive a one time payment, which is known as ‘construction work in progress’ which is based off of all the pipeline work equipment that was in the county on Jan. 1 of 2014. “We were blessed to have a pipe yard in our school district which helped out a lot,” Maddex said. The value of the construction work in progress for the school district last year was a little over $21 million. When that is put into the tax levy at a rate of 3.75 percent, it equates out to approximately $750,000, according to Maddex.

Shelby County R-IV School District has received a $2,500 donation from Monroe County farmer Brian Threlkeld and America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. The donation will help purchase new plasma cutting torches and other new tools for the agriculture department.
   “We are in an agricultural community, and I am glad to help out the ag department of the school,” said Threlkeld. “Since the school has gone through budget cuts in the past few years, it was easy making my decision to donate to the local school district.”
