No override vote today on SB1

House Speaker Michael Madigan has canceled today's session of the Illinois House, including an override vote on Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of a school funding bill. Madigan says he remains committed to seeing the school funding reform package through.

 

The news came after one of the longest leaders meetings in recent memory. Legislative leaders met for five hours before Madigan made the cancellation as a show of good faith in negotiations. More talks will now proceed between the leaders.


Gardenstock 2017 benefits SCI youth gardening program

An article in the Journal of HealthPsychology found that gardening leads to decreased cortisol levels and increases positive moods which can “promote relief from acute stress.” This among other benefits of gardening is one of the many reasons that Sinnissippi Centers has a Youth Gardening Program. The Annual Gardenstock Music and Art Festival was held at Distinctive Gardens in Dixon last Saturday to help support the program. The look and feel of Gardenstock harkened back to the Woodstock era but was a family-friendly venue. Our Tammy Nehrkorn spoke with Andy Jackson of Sinnissippi Centers at Gardenstock.

 

Produce that is raised through the Sinnissippi Centers Gardening Program is donated to area food pantries.
