The Henry and Stark County Health Departments remind area residents of their Family Planning clinic program.

Through the family planning clinic program, the Health Department hopes to give women the information and means they need to plan pregnancies and make responsible decisions. The program also hopes to detect other health problems early in their development so that clients can be referred to other health care providers for treatment.

Clinics are held in Kewanee at the Health Department offices, Route 78 South. Appointments, which are necessary, may be made by contacting the Health Department.

The family planning program provides annual physical exams to area women, including a breast exam and pap smear.

The clinic accepts medicaid payments and private pay. A sliding fee scale, based on the client's income, had been established to assist low-income families to obtain services. In addition, grant funds are available for those who meet certain eligibility requirements.

In addition to contraceptive services, the clinic also offers pregnancy testing.

For more information or to schedule an appointment call the Health Department at (309) 852-5272 or visit our website at www.henrystarkhealth.com. or find us on Facebook

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
