By Sue Carpenter firstname.lastname@example.org GARRETT — The Garrett Common Council introduced and passed on first reading ordinances regulating fireworks and prohibiting the discharge firearms in the city limits. A firearms ordinance passed with a 4-1 vote, with councilwoman Brenda Wigginton casting the dissenting vote. The ordinance defines firearms as a weapon capable of firing a projectile and using an explosive charge or compressed gas/air as a propellant. Exceptions under the ordinance include police officers, members of the Armed Forces or National Guard engaged in performance of their duties, persons exercising their right of self-defense, defense of others or defense of property; and activities at an indoor/outdoor shooting range approved the City of Garrett provided those activities are conducted in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws. The ordinance includes penalty of $100 fine for violation. Wigginton took exception to the ordinance banning BB guns, air guns and spray guns. City attorney Dan Brinkerhoff noted those types of guns were formerly prohibited but repealed in 2010. A second ordinance regulating hours and days when consumer fireworks can be used in the city passed with a 3-2 vote. The measure defines consumer fireworks as a small firework designed to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, chemical composition and labeling regulations. The term aerial devices not limited to sky rockets, missile-type rockets, helicopter or aerial spinners, roman candles, mines and shells; and ground devices including firecrackers, salutes and chasers.

Some 70 bicyclists ranging in age from 3 to 72 rode in the first Le Tour D’Kalb on Oct. 20, 2011, at Auburn’s Rieke Park. Older riders chose routes of 10, 25, 50, 62, 75 or 100 miles. The second Tour DeKalb is planned for Sept. 7, beginning on Ninth Street in Auburn.
By Octavia Lehman email@example.com AUBURN — After a one-year hiatus, Tour DeKalb is back again with a new focus: family friendly. In 2011, the inaugural Le Tour D’Kalb Bike Ride was held at Rieke Park with more than 70 participants. “The first year was fantastic,” said event organizer Jeremiah Otis. “We had a great turnout.” However, Otis said he hoped more families would have participated in the bike ride. This time around, Otis said he’s targeting families specifically. New to the event is a separate ride for families — a 6.5-mile ride through the streets of Auburn. Otis said the ride is designed for families and groups. “Grandma and grandpa can take the grandchildren,” he said. The registration fee of $15 includes two adults and the children accompanying them. “We want to keep the cost low for families,” Otis said. Tour DeKalb is planned for Sept. 7, starting on Ninth Street between Jackson and Main streets.
The event is sponsored by the Broken Spokes Bicycle Club of Waterloo and DeKalb County Trails. The family bike ride begins at 10 a.m. on Ninth Street and will follow routes through town including the Rieke Park Trail and the interurban trail between Auburn and Waterloo. Otis said maps of the routes will be available the day of the event. “We will check the routes before the race to make sure we don’t ride into any road construction,” Otis said. Riders also can take countywide tours with distance options of 25, 50, 62, 75, and 100 miles. The longer distance options will take riders through many of the county’s town centers. The 25-mile route includes stops in Auburn, Waterloo and Garrett. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Riders can start as early as 8 a.m., and the last riders will be out at Tour, Page 2

Prairie Heights senior Shawna Carbone drives a kill past Garrett’s Drue Bodey on Wednesday.
Panthers claw back to win BY JAMES FISHER email@example.com GARRETT — Prairie Heights coach Tina Sailor learned something about her team during Wednesday’s non-conference volleyball game at Garrett: Her Panthers aren’t quitters. After dropping the opening set against the Railroaders and trailing 7-1 in Game 2, Sailor’s Panthers responded to score a 13-25, 25-23, 25-17, 25-21 victory. “I called a time out and asked them if they were done,” Sailor explained. “They said no they weren’t and completely turned it around.” Tressa Terry was 21-for-21 serving, with eight kills and 20 assists for the Panthers. “Our goal, because we’re young, is to not roll over if we get down,” Terry explained. “The seniors, we have to take control of the game and not get down on ourselves.” Shawna Carbone had eight kills and four blocks for Heights.

But then Heights came charging back. “We changed our offense and really turned it around,” Sailor said. “I was proud of how we adjusted and proud of the heart and fight that was in us.” The Panthers came through with a 12-0 run, highlighted by a Carbone ace and two kills by Terry. The contest was tied at 23-all in the late going, but Heights followed with a score on a tip by Havanna Kleeberg and went on to win 25-23. Prairie Heights went up 19-9 in Game 3, with Carbone coming through with several key plays at the net. The senior later gained the game point as the Panthers won 25-17. Game 4 was tied several times, the last at 20-20. Haley Kleeberg broke the deadlock with a kill and Havanna Kleeberg closed the game with a kill. “i knew it was in them, they had the intensity and the heart,” Sailor said. “They beat a great team.”

had 12 digs. For Garrett, Taylor Smith contributed 20 kills, six blocks, 16 digs and 14 assists. Rachel Stafford had nine kills and Lyndsey Gibson had 17 digs and eight kills. The Railroaders also got 34 digs from Mary Hoeffel and 20 assists from Rachel DePew. “When we play together and talk we play well,” said Garrett coach Sallie Raftery. “When we don’t talk, we don’t play well.” The Railroaders certainly had things working in Game 1. The squad used two kills and a block from Smith to jump ahead 5-1 at the outset. Garrett took its margin to double digits late in the match and put Game 1 away with kills by Stafford and Drue Bodey, along with an ace from Lyndsey Gibson. Just like the first set, Garrett jumped out in Game 2. Taylor had four-straight plays at the net that resulted in points during a 7-1 start for the Railroaders.

New faces fill Big Train falls in opener Garrett lineup By MARK MURDOCK firstname.lastname@example.org GARRETT — How will Garrett follow up last year’s conference championship football season? Don’t ask Chris DePew. The second-year Railroader coach wants to know just as much as the next guy. Garrett graduated several key contributors from the 7-3 squad that shared the Allen County Athletic Conference title a year ago, and a lot of new faces will be in the lineup when the Railroaders kick off the season against Eastside tonight. “We have so many question marks,” DePew said. “We have young guys, new guys — it’s a strange blend of different people. “They’re already as close as any team I’ve coached. They’re ready to do something together. It’s a matter of how fast they adjust to Friday night football.” DePew and the Railroaders aren’t giving up on the season as a rebuilding year. They know this year’s team will be a work in progress, hoping that improvement will come with more game experience. “We feel good about what we’re doing,” DePew said. “It’s just a matter of how fast they grow up and are ready to become varsity players. When that happens, we’re looking to have some fun. “We have high expectations. We’ll never not have high expectations here.” One plus is the return of starting quarterback Noah Follett (6-2, 185) for his senior year. He threw for more than 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns, and also ran for seven scores a year ago as he earned first-team All-ACAC recognition.

By Jeff Jones email@example.com BUTLER — For 2-1/2 quarters, it looked like the scoreboard wouldn’t be big enough at the rate the Eastside Blazers and Garrett Railroaders were putting up points in Friday’s seasonopening game. All of a sudden, the Blazers got a couple of stops in the third quarter and grabbed the momentum on the way to a 46-22 win. That snapped a 10-game skid to the Railroaders, and gave Eastside possession of the “Train Trophy” for the first time. The teams combined to rack up nearly 800 yards of offense. The Blazers finished with 352 yards on the ground and 126 through the air. The Railroaders accumulated nearly all of their yardage on the ground, with 266 rushing yards. Eastside junior P.J. Dean carried 18 times for 267 yards and four scores. He caught one pass for another touchdown. Garrett’s Bryit Sumner — who finished with 146 yards on 31 carries and two touchdowns — had just scored on a five-yard run and teammate Bo Davis added a conversion to give the visitors a 22-21 lead barely four minutes into the third. The Blazers quickly responded, as Dean ripped off a 40-yard run, setting up his own 1-yard run just over a minute later. Eastside missed the conversion run, but led 27-22. The Railroaders then went three-and-out, and punted the ball away. On the next scrimmage play — a sweep to Dean that went for a 60-yard touchdown — swung the momentum in Eastside’s favor. Three plays after that, the
“Any coach’s security blanket is an experienced quarterback,”DePew said. “He’s not only experienced, he’s talented in what he does. He can make plays with his legs or his arm. He’s become the leader we need him to be.” Follett will have a much different supporting cast. Junior Bo Davis (6-2, 225), also an all-conference first-teamer last season, will carry the ball along with senior Gabe Gunion (5-9, 190) and junior Bryit Sumner (6-0, 185). Davis and Gunion also will be counted on at linebacker on defense. Senior Ryan VandeZande (6-2, 180) is a returning starter at split end. Junior Tommy Reneau (6-5, 195) figures to move from tackle to tight end and defensive end this season. Junior Kyler Perez (6-2, 230) will be a tackle and a defensive end, and Lucas Deuitch (5-11, 240) also figures to be a two-way lineman. With the young lineup, Garrett isn’t mentioned among the favorites for its final season in the ACAC (the Railroaders move back to the Northeast Corner Conference next year). Expectations aren’t as high. That’s given this team a chip on its shoulder. The Railroaders would like to prove the pundits wrong. “They’ve been told since the first day of the offseason that they’re going to struggle. It’s been an easy source of motivation,” DePew said. “I’ve always said the opinions of others don’t matter, whether the opinions are high or low. Our identity is formed by what we do that no one else sees. We know our business better than anybody else.”

Garrett’s Bryit Sumner stiff-arms an Eastside tackler during Friday’s season-opening game at Butler. Sumner ran 31 times for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Blazers had the ball back, as Renier recovered a fumble at the Garrett 28. The Blazers needed just five plays to cash in again, this time on a 17-yard pass to Renier by freshman Conner Dove. With 1:23 left in the third, the Blazers were in command, 40-22. On the game’s second play, Garrett’s Dustin Underwood stepped in front of a Dove pass and returned it to the Blazer 10, setting up Sumner’s short TD run barely two minutes into the game. The Blazers answered with a nine-play, 66-yard drive that lasted five minutes, capped by Dean’s 10-yard run. Eastside added another Dean, this time from nine yards out, and led 14-6 after one. Garrett tied it early in the second quarter as quarterback Noah Follett snuck in from the one, and Ryan VandeZande completed a conversion pass to Garrett Sutton.
