Page 20 Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard, Thursday, July 17, 1975 Aiming To Be A Better Biker , V, '*-.l* ' i#t By all reckoning Bryan Cook of 702 S. Burchard Ave. should now be a bicyling pro. Bryan and 35 other youngsters took part in a bicycle safety clinic Wednesday afternoon at Read Park, sponsored by the Freeport Park District and the Freeport Police Department. Bryan started out with a mechanical check on his cycle performed by policeman Robert Folgate and Kas Dumroese before pedaling off to a series of seven proficiency challenges. There was hand signaling, weaving around cones, balanc- ing on one foot while maintaining a straight line path, proper stopping, 4 following a figure "8" and anticipating a stop. Such exertion demanded soft drink at the end. First place winners (in three age categories were presented blinkers for their bikes. Top scorers were Jeff Johnson, Jeff Davis and Darrell Thiel. All the entries received rules of the road booklets and decals. The clinic was arranged by Jill Marchese, Park District recreation supervisor. > Journal-Standard Photos by Steve Sumner More Efficient Use Of Funds Possible, Lt. Governor Says By BOB CARR Journal-Standard Reporter Lt. Gov. Neil Hartigan, a Chicago- born and Daley-bred Democrat, appeared calm and sincere in telling a Freeport audience Tuesday that "gaps in government service" can be plugged by more efficient use of available state money. There was an attractive respect for his audience in the soft, modulated yet clear delivery of the red-haired Hartigan, whose remarks 'were well received by the predominantly Republican Kiwanis Club. State Rep. Robert Brinkmeier was responsible for Hartigan's appearance at the noon luncheon meeting. The lieutenant governor kept his half-hour talk to subjects familiar to him-help for the aged, revitalizing the state fair, more efficient use of energy resources, abandoned mined lands reclamation and a new airport for East St. Louis. His jabs at oft-time opponent Gov. Dan Walker were few and light since this was not, he said, a campaign speech. Dignity For the Aged Hartigan said the newly created cabinet-level Department on Aging, which he was instrumental in forming, can do much to help the state's 1.2 million senior citizens. "It doesn't make sense that the elderly, who have worked and paid taxes for 40 years, are not allowed to live in dignity," he said. 'It doesn't make sense that six of 10 unmarried women over 65 have to live on $200 a month." Although the legislature and some .agencies of state government have recognized the problem, he said, there has been confusion about what course to take. Of 27 different bills introduced in . the General Assembly dealing with aid for the aged, only three have passed; The reason, he said, is the multiplicity of approach. "Frankly, little has been done so far to put money in the pocketbook," Hartigan said. But the Department on Aging may soon be able to help, he said. The department is investigating the aid programs now in effect, weeding out the bad or inefficient ones and strengthening the good. "We're taking the existing dollars available and doing a better job," he said. "The department found 34 programs that were supposed to be helping senior citizens, but only a handful of them worked. The idea is to direct the money from programs that don't work to those that do." A New Day Hartigan also spoke of another pet project, the "cleaning up" of the Illinois State Fair, a "symbol of agriculture which has been plagued by scandal." Efforts to take administration of the fair "out of politics and into the agriculture .and agribusiness community" will give farmers "a chance to run their own fair," he said. A revitalized, ag-run fair "can be a new day symbolically for agriculture in the state," he said. "We could have the World's Fair in agriculture located in Springfield." One People-One State Throughout the talk, Hartigan stressed his 1972 campaign theme of "One State-One People," calling for bipartisan cooperation of all Illinoisans in several areas. He spoke briefly on the need for more efficent use of Illinois energy resources, including vast, reserves of coal. He called for the mapping of a state comprehensive energy policy to take some of the economic burden off business. He also said building a new airport .near East St. Louis could positively affect persons in all parts of the state. The 6,000 to 8,000 temporary construction jobs and several thousand other permanent jobs it would create would help 'ease the $1 billion annual tax drain in Southern Illinois, he said. He hinted that if the East St. Louis project goes through, Northwest Illinois might be next in line for a major airport. Meeting Human Needs Hartigan said his effort since election is to make the lieutenant governor's job something more than a ceremonial position. "I've tried to become involved in meeting the human needs of the people," he said. "I think change can come, but it will come only in degrees." There is enough state money to plug the gaps in the social programs if the money is used wisely, he said. These burdens will rightfully flow from the local to the state level, he said, "once we get out of show business and into good government.
