Jefferson County Art Guild News

Jefferson County Art Guild held a gift-wrapping event for anyone needing gifts wrapped-for free! Dec. 9 and 10 and Dec. 13 and 14 found the Art Guild Studio filled with paper, ribbons, boxes and tags all waiting to be used for guests who needed help in wrapping their gifts. Santas helpers, (wearing red hats and cheery smiles) stood ready to pack and wrap. Those helpers were: President Lacey Searing, Jeanette Bangert, Vicki Christ, Audrey Dawes, and Daisy. We will probably do this again next Christmas. In the meantime Monday workshops will resume in January where members work on various types of art. Stop in at the Studio from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Or better yet, bring YOUR Art and join us that day.

Fry Arrested

Photo caption: Emily Fry

Emily A. Fry, 40 of Fairbury, was arrested on Jan. 7 on a Jefferson County Warrant.

At 3:25 p.m. on Jan. 7, the Fairbury Police Department responded to 1009 Lindell Street to execute a misdemeanor arrest warrant on Emily A. Fry.

When Officers arrived, they attempted to get Fry to answer the door but when she looked out and noticed the officers, she allegedly locked all the doors and barricaded herself in the residence.

Officers spent the next 45 minutes trying to get Fry to come out of the residence and give herself up but she refused to cooperate, according to police.

Officers were able to get ahold of a key to the residence and officers gained entry into the house and found Fry hiding underneath a sink in the bathroom.

Fry refused to come out from under the sink so officers had to force her out. She was then taken into custody without incident.
