Trauma training was a success
To the Editor:
The DeKalb County Juvenile Justice Council would like to thank everyone who attended the Trauma Informed Approaches training held April 6. The turnout was fantastic, with representatives from all areas of our community: schools, churches, attorneys, counselors, therapists, court services, health care and social service agencies. This training would not have been possible without the support of our partners at Family Service Agency, DeKalb County Mental Health Board, Youth Service Bureau, Adventure Works, Hope Haven, DeKalb County Community Action and KishHealth System.
Our next community event will be a free screening of the documentary “Paper Tigers” at 7 p.m. May 16 at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb. All are encouraged to attend!
The Juvenile Justice Council is working to bring more trauma informed training to DeKalb County in the near future. Please follow us on Facebook (dekalbcountyjuvenilejustice) and visit our website (www.dekalbcountyjuvenilejustice.org) for updates and information!
Thank you for supporting our work to make DeKalb County a trauma informed community!

Thanks for the vote
To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of Genoa Township. You all took the time to go to the polls casting your vote to re-elect me as your highway commissioner. Everyone from the homeowners displaying my campaign signs, local business owners who graciously displayed my posters and flyers and Dick Kearny and Fred Jorgensen for their generous offers to display my large banners and signs on their property. I would also like to thank Jim Slater for the wonderful letter he wrote and submitted to the Daily Chronicle on my behalf.
Thank you to the DeKalb County Highway Commissioners along with Jim Quinn for the letter of support and Cortney Strohacker of the Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce for her valuable suggestions and advice. Lastly, thank you to Katie Aretos of Your Graphix Inc. for the amazing job she did designing and providing me with all of my campaign materials and to my family and friends for the tireless campaigning and support. One of the best things that came from this election is the amount of people I got to meet and talk to face-to-face while out campaigning. We have some great people in our community. I truly look forward to the next four years of serving the community and I would like to give you all my heartfelt thank you.
