I have a friend who is retiring and has 5 very nice suits from Delberts in Arthur. They are 42 long, 38 pants. A variety of neutral (professional) colors. He also has some very nice dress pants and long sleeve dress shirts. Would like to donate them to someone needing professional dress. I can provide pictures. tkesler@parkland.edu

Seamus Reilly will be leaving Parkland soon to take over as president of Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg. On my desk in our office, U330, is a book where you can write some parting words for Seamus. If you'd like to write a message for him, stop by anytime. I know he'll appreciate it!

Gail: I had Roof Doctors do my roof after getting some referrals from some other Parkland folks. It was a great decision. The owner, Randy, was excellent. Bad weather caused the roofing to take a couple of days longer than anticipated, but we were totally satisfied.

ParklandGives365 Collecting Donations for Student's Family

PG365 was notifed that a Parkland student and her family lost their home and all possessions to a house fire last week. This young lady lives with her parents, brother, and several pets. All are unharmed. They are in great need of our help, as they must replace all essentials. Gift cards to Walmart and Meijer and cash donations would be most helpful so the family can select their preferred replacement items. If you’d like to donate specific items, a list is available here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4ea9a72fa5f94-urgent. Please do sign up for the item you’re donating to make sure we maximize our resources to support our student and her family. We are unable to accept checks for this particular project.

The following offices have kindly offered to serve as donation collection points: International Admissions in U238, Center for Academic Success (CAS) in D120, and the Parkland Library circulation desk. We request that all donations be dropped off to one of these locations by Friday, March 9.

If you'd like to subscribe to our mailing list to receive notifications when we have projects like this, please complete the very short form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1gRZIlznyg...V2DPznxf0OHp1JCiS70

Dan -

Thanks for this informative post. It might be worth mentioning that there are several ways to reduce your tax liability for your home/property. Some folks don't know about the general homestead exemption - not to be confused with the 65 and over homestead exemption. It takes $6000 off of your tax liability. Everyone is eligible as long as it's your primary residents. I've known at least two people who's attorney did not file this exemption for them when they purchased a home. I would encourage everyone to examine their tax bill and make sure they are receiving this benefit. It's easy to apply for it if you're not.

Check out this link for more info -

For Champaign Residents who just turned 65!
Homeowners 65 and over are eligible for a Homestead Exemption on their real estate taxes. (Not the state tax you file by April 15, but the county real estate tax you pay in two installments in July and September).
Here's the thing - You have to REQUEST this exemption! If you don't, you won't get it! I didn't know about this until I was 68, so I overpaid for several years and I can't get that money back. And this was several hundred dollars.
So please pass the word to your friends who are eligible and don't know it. The contact info is on the form I've scanned in here. (Click it to make it bigger)
There are actually two benefits - everybody meeting the age requirement gets the Homestead Exemption, regardless of income. The other is only for people with income less than $65,000.
