Wyanet reinstates annual pick-up day By Becky Kramer firstname.lastname@example.org
WYANET – The Wyanet Village Board took action on several items at Tuesday’s meeting, including deciding to reinstate a general garbage pick-up for the community. The village board had decided last year to no longer fund the general garbage pick-up, commonly known as junk days. Further information on the reinstated service will be available as soon as the dates have been set. Also at Tuesday’s meeting, Kerry Jaggers addressed the board about water damage to his building incurred during the recent flooding. He questioned whether or not FEMA is involved and also addressed the board about what future plans are to address this problem. Village Clerk Shelly Teske informed Jaggers and the board that she and Village Engineer Jack Kusek met Tuesday with IEMA representatives. IEMA will be coming to town to check on damages. After that, they will make the decision as to whether or not Wyanet qualifies for assistance. Another resident addressed the board regarding a Maple Street property which has not had the grass mowed. The village ordinance states that if the grass is more than eight inches tall, the village can mow the grass and put a lien on the property. The board approved having the village employees mow the lawn. President Bruce Hand reported the water main break on Main Street cost the village approximately $10,000 to repair. Building and Equipment Committee Chairman John Swarczewski reported the board purchased a John Deere lawn tractor for the cost of $6,400. Bids are also being accepted for a dump truck.
Changes coming to county dental clinic County still seeking federal disaster designation By Donna Barker email@example.com
PRINCETON — Adjustments are being made with the dental clinic operated through the Bureau/Putnam County Health Department. At Tuesday’s meeting of the Bureau County Board, board member Loretta Volker gave an update on the county’s dental clinic, saying the Bureau County Board of Health has studied the funding and adult utilization of the county’s dental clinic
for the past 18 months. That study shows adult utilization of the clinic continues to dwindle, Volker said. Since Medicaid no longer covers adult dental care, the Board of Health has made the decision to offer adult dental services on a sliding scale based on the income of the adult, Volker said. Decisions reached by the health department were not made lightly, she said. Also, with the continuing decrease in the adult utilization of the clinic, the full-time services of the current dentist is no longer

needed, Volker said. The current dentist has been released from his contract with the health department, as well as with LaSalle and Henry counties who subcontract dental services through the Bureau/ Putnam County Health Department, she said. Dental services will now be provided by several area dentists who have served the clinic in the past and are now willing to volunteer their time at the clinic, Volker said. As before, there will still be appointments set for certain days of each week, she said.

Open house planned for Tiskilwa Library Bids for Tiskilwa Library addition due in May By Lyle Ganther firstname.lastname@example.org

Envisioning the next step Brenden Piacenti concentrates on his choices in creating a summer hat during Monday’s children’s “Hat Parade” program at the Tiskilwa Public Library. Following the craft time and book reading time, about 15 children and program leaders headed outdoors for a parade down Main Street. The children’s programs at the Tiskilwa library are free and open to the public.
TISKILWA — Tiskilwa residents can see the building plans and ask questions about a new addition to the existing library costing less than $1 million at an open house set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the library. Tiskilwa Library Board President Rich Foss told Tiskilwa Village Board members at their meeting Tuesday night that bids for the project are due to be open in May with ground being broken this summer for the addition. “We want to occupy it by next spring or summer,” he said. The addition will be at ground level and placed on empty lots to the east of the existing library, added Foss. An inside ramp will connect the new addition and the existing library instead of having an exterior ramp in a $1.8 million plan rejected by voters in 2010. Village board members voted to waive building permit fees for the library’s addition, but to charge for monthly water and sewer usage. Board members have received word they will receive a $504,000 Illinois Public Library Construction Grant to fund 51 percent of the building project. The remaining $486,000 for the project will come from savings accumulated by the library board over the years, $35,000 in donations from private individuals and a line of credit from a local bank, said Foss. The village had transferred ownership of the lots for the addition to the library about a year ago since the building had to be owned by the library instead of the village as it had been since the library was created in 1908.

the board heard from Bureau County Emergency Services and Disaster Agency (ESDA) coordinator Kris Donarski on the progress being made on getting federal disaster designation for Bureau County due to the April 17-18 heavy rains and flooding that hit the area. Bureau County is one of 49 counties in Illinois to already have received state disaster area designation. Donarski said she and other local government officials are now working on getting the county declared a federal disaster area. She and local officials have met with members of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Illinois Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration and shown them some of the worst-
hit homes and areas in the county. There are two parts to the federal declaration process, Donarski said. Individual assistance covers home and business repairs, while public assistance covers things like road and bridge repair as well as government buildings. Though Bureau County was not among the initial 11 counties declared to be federal disaster areas on May 10 by President Barack Obama, that does not mean Bureau County will not get the designation, Donarski said. “They’ve approved those first 11 counties and will move on to the other counties to see if they will be added on,” she added. “I don’t know how long that will take.” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

DePue will wait until next tornado season for sirens By Goldie Currie email@example.com
DEPUE – Although DePue’s ongoing siren project is making progressive strides, the village board has learned their sirens won’t be in the ground and ready to blare until next tornado season. Chamlin and Associates engineer Don Bixby met with the board on Monday and explained new sirens take anywhere from 12 to 18 weeks to be delivered. “Nobody stocks them. Nobody inventories anything. They want you to order it and then they build them,” he said. “Obviously we’re going to miss this whole season. We are looking at next year’s tornado season when we’d have things in and operational.” The plans and specs for the project are still underway and are about 90 to 95 percent completed, according to Bixby. He said final plans will be completed once details from a recent meeting with village president Eric Bryant, village fire chief Steve Rauh and a communications representative are finalized and put together.
In the meantime, Bixby recommended the village put together an “alternates list” of items that could be purchased if the siren bids come in lower than the $100,000 grant money the village has to spend. “With the grant money, you want to spend it all,” he said. Items Bixby suggested was putting out contract bids for removing the old sirens once the new ones were in place or purchasing a generator for the radio base as a back-up when the electricity might fail. “It’s whatever might be an advantage to the community,” he said. Board trustee Dan Hoffert said if a generator is purchased to make note it would include an automatic transfer vs. a manual transfer. “The cost difference isn’t huge, but it’s well worth whatever you’d spend,” he said. Once the old sirens are removed, Bixby said they will be salvage and available to the village if it wishes to scrap the materials. The village will be installing a siren in Oak Brook, replacing the siren in White City and moving the siren
location near the village shed to Firemen’s Park. In other news, the board: • Reorganized and sat new board members Bill Laicoff and Chuck Casford. • Approved the hiring of Mark Olszewski as full-time village police officer and Brad Foster as part-time village police officer. • Accepted a bid from Scheri Electric for $89.70 to upgrade the lighting in the wastewater treatment plant. • Approved a special event liquor license for the DePue Men’s Club. • Approved a $100 donation for Healthy Kids Camp at St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley. • An electronic recycling drive will take place in the village from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Bryant warned the company organizing the drive will charge people wishing to recycle old televisions. The price will be anywhere from $15 to $25. “You can recycle televisions, it’s just going to cost you,” he said. • Board trustee Gerald Favero reminded the public the village has an ordinance against dumping grass clippings on the street.

decided to keep the flower boxes on Main Street in this block after the project is finished instead of removing them as well as having the flower box in front of the current library be relocated to allow for the handicapped accessible parking spaces and ramps for the library addition. Board members decided to spend around $10,000 to repair various creek areas around the village damaged by the recent flooding. If Bureau County is declared a federal disaster area, the village may be able to recoup these funds, said Mayor Randy Philhower. Money will be placed in the village’s appropriation ordinance for this work in the next fiscal year that started
May 1. With Strawberry Festival being moved back one week to June 15 this year due to cold spring temperatures not allowing strawberries to grow, the village’s clean-up day is set for June 21. Philhower also told board members that it will cost about $48,000 to replace two filters and new sand at the village’s sewer plant and work at the water tank should be finished in June after the power company connects electrical lines. On Wednesday, trustee Kim Rich reminded residents that extra garbage needs to be tagged or they will be billed by the village. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.
SV’s waters have receded, but the problems remain By Brock Cooper firstname.lastname@example.org
SPRING VALLEY – The flood water may be receding, but the damage done has taken its toll on the Spring Valley wastewater treatment plant. The direction taken with repairs will depend on the amount of federal money that may eventually become available. “Everything is so much in the air,” Alderman Tom Nesti said at Monday’s council meeting. The recent flood took its toll on the plant and the city has to decide if it’s worth building a brand new plant or fixing the issues at the old one. Currently, Bureau County has not been declared a disaster area like LaSalle County and that means the amount of federal money is limited. Mayor Walk Marini said he recently spoke with
federal legislators and discovered that counties that had people displaced from their homes were named first and that Bureau County will likely make the cut soon. “We were somewhat assured that we’ll be declared a federal disaster area,” Marini said. The wastewater treatment plant was undergoing renovations from a federal IKE grant, which was awarded after Hurricane Ike brought nonstop heavy rains in September 2008. That work has been postponed while the city decides its next move. City Engineer Larry Good said he contacted the grant agency to see if the money could be rerouted for the current flood damage, but it can’t. There could be future grant opportunities, but it’s too early to tell. The city council will
also seek a 120-day extension for a long-term control plan for the water and sewer system that is due June 8. Given the flood, Good wanted have a better handle on the flood impact and not be hurried to meet the deadline. Superintendent of Public Works John Schultz said he met the officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency about the treatment plant. They will visit the wastewater treatment plant soon to examine the damage themselves. There will be a Public Health and Safety Committee meeting at 6:30 p.m. today, Thursday, and a Finance Committee, Water and Sewer Committee and Streets and Alleys Committee meetings beginning at 6:30 p.m. May 23.

He grew up with a determined work ethic and always had more work planned ahead of him than a normal man ever had time for. He farmed the home place until retiring in 1997, was a farrier into the 1990s, having taken instruction with Oklahoma State Horse Shoeing School, roasted whole hogs for wedding receptions and family gatherings in the local area for a number of years, and enjoyed hunting raccoons behind a couple of hounds in his “spare time.” He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed all varieties of hunting, including morels every spring.

The perpetual student It sounds cliché to say you are never too old to learn something new every day, but this is a philosophy I actually live by. I completed my formal education in 2005 when I finally graduated with my master’s degree in cultural anthropology. Yet, the student in me is alive and well and continues to seek out new information constantly. In particular, I am very active about participating in ongoing education that is relevant to my field of work, cooking and innkeeping. One would assume that having been in business for more than eight years now, I kind of know what I’m doing, but in a COMMENTARY constantly changing world, the game of doing business constantly changes. And in order to stay relevant, you have to keep up with what is new, adapt and put these new procedures into practice. First off, and I believe this pertains to just about any profession out there, conferences and educational seminars are always being held. And more and more often, these are being held as webinars that you can take from the comfort of your own home right on your own computer, so you don’t even have to invest in travel expenses to participate. We religiously attend our annual Illinois Bed and Breakfast Association meetings every spring, and without fail, I return home with a ton of new information and a renewed sense of enthusiasm for the work we do. Barring catastrophe, I will never miss one of these meetings. It is not only a benefit of membership but a unique opportunity to pick the minds of others in the same business and glean valuable experience from them. And truth be told, innkeepers are a very fun bunch to hang around with. Second, there are numerous resources out there via social media and the Internet to keep abreast of new trends in any industry you may be involved in. I follow many pages on both Twitter and Facebook that pertain to innkeeping and cooking. And it doesn’t hurt to keep up with what your competitors are doing. It enables you to see what is working or not working, so you can stay competitive. I would like to issue a word of caution with the Internet. Just because it is online, doesn’t mean it is true. Make sure your resources are legitimate, and make sure you cross reference stories. Anyone can post anything online, and that can make it quite difficult to discern fact from fiction. Finally, don’t be afraid of becoming a returning student. Classes exist for returning students through many community colleges and vocational schools that are geared toward the specific needs of the returning student, for example “Using the Internet 101” or “Computer 101.” These types of courses are often held nights or weekends to fit around a busy work and/or family schedules, and they can be cost effective ways of acquiring new skills that can really make a difference in how you compete with those who are coming straight out of school. I myself recently completed a culinary certification through the International Association of Culinary Professionals. The program involved studying 25 different books related to food and cooking and then completing and passing an exam with 200 questions and three essays. Once I qualified to enter the program, which took me six years, I had one year to prepare for and pass the exam. I like to joke that it was like taking the bar exam for cooking because the topics were so wide and the specific questions random. It was intense, but I’m glad I did it, and I learned a lot. Did it make me a better chef or make me more credible to those dining with us? Probably not, but it did give me new information to use when teaching cooking classes

Turning around into tomorrow Turn around once, turn around twice, turn around three times, and tomorrow is here. A few weeks ago, our daughter Anjee and her husband Dan and their two girls, Addi, 5, and Emma, 4, were at our house for a visit. Addi and I were searching for treasures in the back of Grandma’s closet when she found the navy blue graduation cap worn by her mother when she graduated from high school. Addi put the cap on her head and I adjusted it just right. Addi looked at herself in the mirror, twirled around a couple times and ran to the living room to show her parents. Her folks clapped and cheered for Addi as she pretended to be a high school graduate. As I watched that little family, I couldn’t help but remember when Anjee wore that cap for real in a commencement exercise held at the Bollman Fieldhouse in New Bedford, before the new Bureau Valley High School building was built. I looked at Addi now wearing that same graduation cap, with the same long blond hair and bright blue eyes as her mother’s. Addi is, as they say, the spitting image of her mom. But 5-year-olds don’t stay in one
Donna Barker COMMENTARY place for very long, and soon Addi was finished with her twirling and skipped back down the hallway to find more treasures in Grandma’s closet. Though the whole little scene took maybe two or three minutes, for me it was one of those moments which almost stood still. I turned to follow Addi down the hallway, but stopped mid-step, turned and walked back into the living room. I knew I needed to share with Addi’s folks something which most every parent of a high school graduate already knows. “This (pointing toward Addi in her graduation cap) is going to happen tomorrow,” I said. “It may not feel like tomorrow right now, and in reality it’s another 13 years away, but when your little girl’s high school graduation comes, you will realize how quickly all those tomorrows came and went and became today.” In the next few weeks, hundreds of high school seniors will gradu-
which is invaluable, and it gave me a sense of accomplishment to have completed it. Sometimes that personal satisfaction is worth every penny and every minute of investment that you put in. I would also argue that by always trying to learn something new you set a great example for your kids. I have had several occasions to spend time with young people talking about what I do, and many are surprised to find out that I didn’t come to my profession until a little later in my academic
ate from Bureau County schools. There will be parties and cheers, camera flashes and lots of hugs. But there may also be some very tender moments for parents as they seem to turn around once, turn around twice and turn around three times and see that their little kindergartner has somehow become a high school graduate. As parents, we work and plan and worry and hope to get our kids to their high school graduations in one piece, with smiles and confidence as they head out the door to college, to jobs, to the military, to more dreams. I remember wondering if I had done enough, helped enough, stood back enough, prayed enough to prepare my kids for heading out the door. I remember taking a deep breath and letting go. So graduates, if your moms and dads get a little choked up when they see you put on your cap and gown, if their eyes get a little misty, remember to be gentle with them and let them hurt just a bit before your celebration begins. That so distant tomorrow has become today for them. BCR Senior Staff Writer Donna Barker can be reached at dbarker@ bcrnews.com.
career. I convey to them that the very act of learning is valuable, and everything you learn is useful in some capacity, so never stop. You’d be amazed at the impact this has had with them. Who knows, you might just inspire someone to achieve something they thought impossible, and that would be truly remarkable.

Crossroads High School students take trip to Creation Museum TISKILWA — Students from Crossroads High School took an out-ofstate trip recently that was a culmination of their studies in science and history. The students went to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., and the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Throughout the year, students have been investigating the evolution controversy. This year, the interdisciplinary studies at Crossroads High School focused on American history. Students gained a greater insight into the experiences and contributions of black Americans, their trials and tri-
umphs, in a variety of ways. In addition to this field trip, the students engaged in a number of other experiences this year to understand how black and white people interacted with each other throughout American history. They visited the Lincoln Museum in Springfield in November and recently attended a presentation by author and speaker Clarice Boswell entitled “Pre-Civil War Quilts: Their Hidden Codes to the Freedom of Slaves through the Underground Railroad,” which was sponsored by the Tiskilwa Library and hosted at the Tiskilwa Historical Society.
Crossroads students also read the “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass” and Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn,” and they viewed the preeminent PBS documentary “Eyes on the Prize” on the Civil Rights movement. As a climax, the students have been preparing “Walk, Don’t Ride,” a one-act drama with music by Peter Manos, as their year-end performance. “We were thrilled to find a play that allows the students to step into the shoes of various leaders in the Civil Rights movement, each telling their story,” said drama teacher Elizabeth Jones.
Crossroads High School students at the Creation Museum include (from row, from left) Clayton Brown, Morgan Cole (alumna), Elisabeth Porter, teacher Elizabeth Jones, teacher Yasmeen Bouwman, Thomas Cook; and (back row) Jeffrey Scott (standing), Elizabeth Henrikson, Dominique Morris and Reuben Horst.

Canadian performer to share ‘songs of faith for small, tall’ PRINCETON — Over the past 10 years, Bryan Moyer Suderman has logged many thousands of miles, mostly by train, with a soul full of music and communities eager to listen and sing along. At 6 p.m. May 22, he will be sharing his “songs of faith for small and tall” at the Evangelical Covenant Church, 24 N Main St. in Princeton. Suderman has a knack for writing songs that are at once simple, catchy, profound and fun for all ages. Since the release of his first CD “God’s Love is for Everybody” in 2002, his songs have become favorites of families and congregations across North America and beyond. His “SmallTall Music” ministry (www.smalltallmusic. com) has been his “flexible full-time” vocation since 2003, and “New World Coming,” his most recent CD release, is a compilation drawn from five studio albums over the past 10 years. Suderman loves to sing and people of all ages love to sing along, whether in congregational settings, intimate house concerts or large conferences. Christian Week magazine has described his music as “melodious, guitar-driven folk with simple lyrics that tell important biblical stories and theological truths.” Audiences respond to the warmth of his voice, the contagious nature of his songs, and his signature interactive style of singing and song leading. Suderman lives near Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and son. The public is invited to attend this free concert. A free-will offering will be collected during the evening. For more information, call 815878-5487. The concert is cohosted by Happy Hands Preschool, the Evangelical Covenant Church and the Willow Springs Mennonite Church in Tiskilwa.
and kids from age 4 through the eighth grade are invited. To enroll, call Sherrie at 815-6464156.

Baseball: Mendota 5, Bureau Valley 3
Trojans hold off Storm rally this time By Bill Schwabenland firstname.lastname@example.org
MANLIUS – The Bureau Valley Storm rallied late once this season to beat the Mendota Trojans. It occurred in the first game of an April 27 doubleheader on the very same baseball field. And so the hosts in this Oregon Regional quarterfinal game showed inklings of possibly doing the same thing again, on Monday afternoon. But the sixth-seeded Trojans (7-19) ultimately held on, behind the 1-2 pitching punch of senior starter Trae Blumhorst’s 4 1/3 innings and freshman reliever Garet Zinke’s 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief, to down fifth-ranked Bureau Valley, 5-3. “I thought we came out a little flat today,” said BV coach John Matlick. “We’ve kind of done that on Mondays this year. It must be the day off on Sunday that has gotten to us. We didn’t come out throwing strikes, and really, Mendota had (only) one hit that first inning. And that (bad result) breaks your back.” Mendota ultimately rode a four-run first inning to the postseason victory.
“Big win. It’s our first regional win in three years,” said Mendota coach Aaron Sester. “So it’s a big win for the kids, going in the right direction. They learned how to win a close game. And, come playoff time, you’ve got to do that. Exciting, happy for the kids.” To start the game, the Trojans recorded only a single base hit, a two-run single to center by Blumhorst, but took advantage of a Bureau Valley fielding error and five walks – including a pair with the bases loaded – to take a 4-0 lead before the Storm offense even swung a bat. Only a great, diving catch by center fielder Josh Mead off the bat of Mendota leadoff man Jaron Robinson, hitting the second time around, prevented the Trojans from scoring at least two – probably three – more runs in the top of the game’s first frame. “We’ve struggled this year with striking out and swinging at bad pitches,” said Sester. “So, one thing we worked on the last couple days (was) just taking good pitches and waiting for theirs, being patient at the plate. Give credit to our kids.”

Regional softball: St. Bede 7, Somonauk 1
Lady Bruins protect the ‘house’ By Derek Johnson email@example.com
PERU — After a tense first inning Tuesday night, the Lady Bruins’ bats woke up delivering them a 7-1 win against Somonauk in the first round of the St. Bede 2A softball regional. Starting pitcher Lainie Schweickert pitched all seven innings earning a win against the Lady
Panthers talented freshman Bayley Krantz. St. Bede catcher Lydia Stariha recorded her first career home run in the effort. The Lady Bruins will play in Saturday’s championship game, drawing the winner of Wednesday’s Princeton-Mendota game. “It’s something everybody on the team has really wanted since the first practice. I got a taste of it this year in basketball and you
just want to feel it again and go further,” Stariha said. Somonauk loaded the bases in the first inning but Schweickert managed to get out of the inning unscathed. “It was really hot in the first inning. I definitely settled in after that. I got loose,” said Schweickert, adding having pressure build early helped get the Lady Bruins going.

They will be joined by Neponset’s Freya Block, a senior from Kewanee, who is top-seeded in the shot put (39-9) and second in the discus (132-7). Mead has the unique double and one that promises to be most challenging. She will run the 800 meters approximately at 10:34 a.m. and could have just a half hour to turn around for the 400. “Zoe said that she felt very loose

Storm back on the home track By Kevin Hieronymus
Boys Track and field sectionals at a glance
email@example.com Most of the area track and field boys teams will assemble in Manlius for the Bureau Valley 1A Sectional meet. Amboy/LaMoille will compete at Oregon and Princeton will run in 2A at Plano. BV senior Logan Hoffert used some home-cooking to capture three conference championships in the Three Rivers Meet last week at Manlius and will look for more of the same with the rest of the Storm on Friday. Hoffert, who medaled at state in 2012 with a seventh-place finish in the long jump, has run the qualifying time in the 300 IH. The Storm’s 4x4 has also run qualifying time and its 4x800 as well as Kristian Konneck (100) are close. “It will be a tough meet but hopefully, the kids are ready to compete. We have been working for this meet all year and hopefully, it will bring the success the kids are looking for,” BV coach Nick Hartz said. One athlete who has been running consistently at the state standard is Steve Gualandri in the 300 IH. In his last four meets he has run under 41 seconds with his best at 40.34. “His prospects of getting to the state meet are really good if he concentrates on running his race and focusing on his performance and not any other individual he would be running against. I like to preach running against the clock and taking care of the things that the athlete has control of,” SBA coach Mike Skoflanc said. Hall senior Landon Piccatto (triple jump) and junior Collin Aimone (long jump) are returning state qualifiers. Piccatto is the BCR Honor Roll leader in both the long jump (20-0 1/4) and

and relaxed at the Sectional in the 400 so the 800 was a good warmup for her. Of course, that was the first time we really ran that double all year in an intense meet,” PHS coach Pat Hodge said. “As they say, we’ll take them one event at a time and see what happens.” Hodge notes there is a little more cushion in the 800, which take 12 girls to the finals as opposed to nine in the 400. Mead will be joined in both races by Aurora Central Catholic freshmen Karina Liz, who beat Mead in both at sectional. Mead, who went to state as part of PHS’ 4x800 relays the past two years, becomes the first PHS qualifier in the 800 since Jennifer Moss in 1991 and the first to go down in the 400 since Hannah Pinter in 1994.

Congratulations, Aaron. • The local chapter of Ducks Unlimited had its popular Crawfish Boil last weekend and it was another success. They cooked about 800 pounds of the little critters and about 400 people were in attendance. The raffles and live auction went well and hunters went home with about 10 shotguns and two handguns. A new event this year was a garage sale and it was popular. The big interest was the tier raffle. Starting at the bottom and working up, the final item was a Beretta A400 12-gauge shotgun.

would. Second chance this year,” said Smallwood, who was sectional champ in the triple jump and runner-up in the long jump. Smallwood did not play soccer this year to be able to concentrate fully on track, setting her sights on adding her name in the PHS corridor of champions as a state medalist. “That’s something I’m striving for,” she said. “And I still have the school record in long jump I’m pushing for, but I’m trying to keep a clear mind when I’m down there and not focused on this and let myself jump. I know I can do it, I just got to let myself do it.” Smallwood, who has been a picture of consistency, should be in good shape, Hodge said, if she’s able to maintain her season’s bests. He said she showed she can compete at the top level with her performances at the Illinois Top Times meet indoors and the fact she has improved her best marks since then also bodes well. The Storm’s Hoffert and Weidner landed two medals each last year and look to bring back more this year. Both, however, have had to endure though injuries throughout the season and have been unable to turn in peak performances thus far.
From Page 11 “We want to hold them to a minimum of runs. We, obviously got out of the first inning with no runs so, that’s always good. But, we got pumped up. We were also hitting very well, too. Lydia got her first home run. That was good,” added Schweickert, who had nine strikeouts. “You can’t overlook any team. They came out strong you know taking advantage of different plays and I am really happy our team was able to get out of (the inning) with no real damage done,” Stariha said. The game was scoreless entering the bottom of the second inning. Mo Dean led off firing a base hit into left field. Dean then took second on a passed ball. Tara Kunkel followed by reaching first on a fielder’s choice with Dean subsequently scoring on a bad throw from short to first base. With Kunkel in scoring
“It wasn’t a great season,” said Hoffert, who was the 2012 State runner-up in the long jump and placed ninth in the 400. “It was pretty rough. I had an ankle injury coming into it. Progressively, I got better. I’m starting to peak now.” Weidner pulled out of the 1600 meters at sectional, nursing a sore back, and will focus on the 3200. She placed third a year ago with a time of 11:30.91 running behind a pair of seniors and takes the 13th seed (12:00.04) to Charleston. Their classmate, Lebahn, was also the runner-up in the discus (108-9) and stands tied for the 11th seed going in, two feet off the ninth and final medal placing. BV coach Dale Donner believes all three Storm athletes have the potential to medal and two are past medalists. “Of course we all know that Regan and Lindsey both medaled last year, but it is forgotten that Sydney grew up around the State track meet,” he said. “I think she has attended about five State meets to watch her sisters compete. She will find it very familiar there and hopefully be able to relax. They have all worked hard and we are very excited to seem them reap the benefits of their hard work.”
position, Abby Nowakowski hit a single to get the RBI. Nowakowski worked the bases and when Christine Daley rolled one to first base, Nowakowski scored while Daley was thrown out at first. Two batters later, Stariha faced Krantz with two away and cranked a line drive home run to leftcenter field to put the Bruins up 4-0. She had never homered before and had to be instructed by her dad, St. Bede first base coach Mike Stariha, to slow down when she came around the base. “I really wasn’t aiming to hit one. I didn’t know it until my dad told me. I was really excited because it’s my first one ever…at any level,” she said. The Bruins added some insurance in the bottom of the third, scoring three runs on three hits and stranding one base runner. The Panthers only run came on an RBI double from Marissa Guzmon in the top of the sixth.

BV’s Josh Mead slides into second base safely Monday with a stolen base.
From Page 11 BV proceeded to chip away, though, at that 4-0 deficit, notching single runs in the second, fourth, and fifth innings. Josh Renner led off the second with a walk, stole second, moved to third base on an Andrew Harshman groundout, and scored on an RBI single by Trevin Kennedy off the first baseman’s glove. Harshman beat out an infield single with one out in the fourth. Kennedy and Rokey both walked to load the bases, thus turning over the BV lineup. Mead hit an RBI sacrifice fly to center field, scoring Harshman, to make it a 4-2 Mendota lead. With one out in the fifth, Bryce Hansen reached on an infield error, moved to second base on a wild pitch, stole third, and came around to score on an errant throw down the left field line, and suddenly, it was 4-3, Trojans. Next up, Blumhorst’s time on the mound ended when he walked Wagenknecht on a full count. Blumhorst labored through 4 1/3 innings, throwing 102 pitches, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and five walks, while striking out five. Enter the freshman Zinke, who got a called third strike and a groundout to second to end the Storm threat. With two out in the bottom of the sixth, BV got
a hit-by-pitch followed by yet another walk, but both runners were stranded when Mattingly flied out to right field. “Offensively, we battled. We had ourselves in situations to succeed,” said Matlick. “We had guys on second base, and we just needed that break-through hit to maybe take the momentum and maybe tie it up or take the lead. And Mendota did a nice job of stopping that, from us capitalizing on.” Mendota added a big insurance run in the top of the seventh when Cody Zinke, who had walked, boldly advanced from first to third on Robinson’s groundout to short, then raced quickly home on the errant throw to third base. BV starter Wagenknecht took the loss, allowing four runs (two earned) on one hit and five walks in 2/3 inning. Kyle Rokey did a great job of relief pitching for the Storm (6-15), yielding only one unearned run over the final six and 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and six walks, while striking out three Trojans. Blumhorst, who supplied a first inning tworun single to center, reached base all four times for Mendota, was the winning pitcher. This was Mendota’s first regional tourney victory since a crazy, 10-9, twoday, 11-inning, 4:09 marathon victory over Oregon on May 20-21, 2009.

Sprint Cup Race: Sprint All-Star Race Where: Charlotte Motor Speedway When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m. (ET) TV: SPEED 2012 Winner: Jimmie Johnson
Matt Kenseth’s Southern 500 victory puts him close to top 20 in all-time Cup wins Among the good things that have come with Matt Kenseth’s midcareer move is a chance to add a cherished Darlington victory to his already impressive racing resume. The 41-yearold driver, who left his longtime employer Roush Fenway Racing to drive the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, led only 17 laps at Darlington Raceway in Saturday night’s Southern 500, but one of them was the big one, as he ran his career victory total to 27 and captured his firstever win at NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway. “I don’t know that I’ve had a win that feels bigger than this at this moment,” he said after Saturday’s race. “This is obviously a really historic race track. The Southern 500 is one of the most storied and historic races anywhere, not just in NASCAR. It’s pretty cool to be able to stand in Victory Lane at this place, the same spot where all the other great drivers stood.” After 11 races this season, Kenseth has three victories, the other two coming at Las Vegas and Kansas, along with two poles, and has led 782 laps, compared to three wins, one pole and 480 laps led for all of last season. For NASCAR drivers, few tracks challenge
them as much as Darlington, the egg-shaped, 63-year-old place known as the track “Too Tough to Tame.” Kenseth is no exception. “I remember when I first came here and ran it Labor Day,” Kenseth said. “It was 90 degrees. The track is so slick and slow, a five-hour race. It was just a crazy, grueling, difficult race. “It’s a tricky track. There’s a lot of tradition here. To be able to win a race at a track like this, especially the Southern 500, man, it’s big.

Grandma Rosie’s Sweet Treats opens Hennepin couple take over longtime business By Lyle Ganther firstname.lastname@example.org
PRINCETON — Jason and Jenny Judd of Hennepin are the new owners of a longtime Princeton business that also has a new name. The Judds recently purchased Tastee Freez on West Peru Street from Gerald and Pam Miller and renamed it Grandma Rosie’s Sweet Treats. “We started this business in a trailer,” said Jenny Judd. “We went to fairs and festivals for the last three years. We came to Princeton for the Bureau County Fair and to Mendota for the TriCounty Fair. We went all over.” Jenny, who worked at a Hennepin restaurant for

This has been a staple in Princeton and we thought what a better place to start our business than here.”

ABO installs Dr. Castelein as president-elect The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) installed Dr. Paul Castelein, an orthodontist from Princeton, as presidentelect May 7 during the ABO President’s Dinner. This event was held in c o n j u n c t i o n Dr. Castelein with the 2013 annual session of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) in Philadelphia, Pa. Castelein earned his D.D.S. from Loyola University in 1966 and then served in the U.S. Navy, attached to the U.S. Marine Corps, for two years. After his military service, Castelein spent two years teaching clinical dentistry and then pursued his postdoctoral education in orthodon-
tics at Northwestern University, earning his master’s degree in 1972. Castelein has maintained a private orthodontic practice in Princeton since 1972. He is an adjunct clinical professor in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in Iowa City, Iowa. “Orthodontics has been my passion since finishing my orthodontic residency,” Castelein said. “Becoming board certified was a process I began when I started my orthodontic practice in Princeton. There were several board-certified orthodontic faculty members at Northwestern University who encouraged board certification to each of the residents and encouraged me to become board certified.
Serving as a director to the American Board of Orthodontics has been a life-changing experience and the highlight of my career.” Castelein is a past president of the Illinois Society of Orthodontists, the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists, the Angle Midwest Component of the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists and the Illinois Valley Dental Society. Castelein also served as a director to the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists from 1992 to 1995. He is a member of the AAO, a diplomat of the ABO, a member of the College of Diplomats of the American Board of Orthodontics and a fellow of the American College of Dentists and the World Federation of Orthodontists.

Prevent farm accidents by being safe on the farm and on the road! Many occupations are hazardous, few more so than agricultural labor. Farmers recognize that they must be diligent in their efforts to prevent nonfatal and fatal injuries. According to the most recent statistics, farmers face a fatality rate of 25.1 for every 100,000 workers. In 2008, 456 farmers and farm workers lost their lives to work-related injuries. What’s particularly risky about agricultural work is that it tends to be a family profession. That puts all members of the family at risk for injury. On average, 113 youth under the age of 20 die annually from farmrelated injuries. Tractor rollover injuries, inhalation of chemical pesticides and lacerations from farm equipment top the list of prime agriculture-related occupational injuries. With scores of different mechanical equipment and chemicals, not to mention

lengthy exposure to the elements on a normal working day, the risk of injury is considerable. There are key ways to prevent injuries on the farm. Here are a few considerations. • Proper training of new employees on the use required equipment is essential. If certification is needed, be sure employees have been trained and practice on equipment prior to independent use. Safety gear should be used at all times, when required. Workers should be careful to keep hair tied back to prevent entanglement in equipment. • Care should be used when working in the elements. Workers should be properly dressed for the temperature and conditions. Beverage breaks should be taken so that dehydration is not a risk. • Knowledge of chemical pesticides and fertilizers should be fully understood. Safety equipment, such as ventilators, eye
guards and gloves, should be used when handling caustic chemicals. • Machinery should be maintained according to OSHA and other federal guidelines. Equipment in good working order is less likely to cause injury. • Caution should always be used around livestock. • Operating equipment when impaired is a hazard in any profession. Alcohol and drug use do not mix in a farm setting. Individuals who seem intoxicated should not be allowed to work. • Children and adolescents should be carefully monitored around the farm. Because of their developing bodies, youngsters should not be allowed to do any activity that is overly strenuous and might tax growing bodies, such as heavy lifting. • There should be training in general first aid and CPR so that help can be given to an injured worker before a response team is able to make it to the location.

Safety essential when visiting a farm The nursery rhyme does not state, “Old MacDonald had a farm and on this farm there was a bunch of dangerous things.” But maybe it should? Farmers perform an essential service, providing food and other products that consumers commonly take for granted. The inner workings of a farm are something to treat with respect. Most of the families who live and work on a farm understand the potential hazards of such an environment. However, individuals visiting a farm may be unaware of these dangers. According to the organization Kids Health, the age groups at greatest risk for injury on farms are children ages 3 to 4 and teenagers ages 13 to 14. Most injuries can be prevented, though, with a little education and precautionary measures. Machinery There are many different forms of machinery on a farm to help keep it working efficiently. These items can pose serious safety risks. Although tractors are the type of farm equipment that causes the most injuries, some adults still think it is safe to allow children to ride along. Injuries that may result from farm machinery include pinching of clothing or parts of the body, where a person may become trapped in the gears or components of equipment; cuts from equipment that shears crops; bruising or cuts from projectiles thrown by mowers or other field

It is a smart idea to always wash your hands after handling a farm animal to prevent the spread of disease.

May is Older Americans Month A meeting with the National Council of Senior Citizens resulted in President John F. Kennedy designating May 1963 as Senior Citizens Month, encouraging the nation to pay tribute to older people across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter’s proclamation changed the name to Older Americans Month, a time to celebrate those 65 and older through ceremonies, events and public recognition. Here are some statistics about older Americans, as provided by the Census Bureau. • 41.4 million - The number of people who were 65 and older in the United States on July 1, 2011, up from 40.3 million on April 1, 2010 (Census Day). In 2011, this group accounted for 13.3 percent of the total population. • 92.0 million - Projected population of people 65 and older in 2060. People in this age group would comprise just over one in five U.S. residents at that time. Of this number, 18.2 million would be 85 or older. • 2.4 million - Projected number of baby boomers in 2060. At that time, the youngest baby boomers would be 96 years old. • 2056 - The year in which, for the first time, the population 65 and older would outnumber people younger than 18 in the U.S. • Nearly 17 percent - Projected percentage of the global population that would be 65 and older in 2050, up from 8 percent today. In 2005, Europe became the first major world region where the population 65 and older outnumbered those younger than 15. By 2050, it would be joined by Northern America (which includes Canada and the United States), Asia, Latin
CHICAGO — Summer break is quickly approaching for high school and college students and many of them will be searching for summer jobs. The Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois is warning students about job scams that could result in a loss of money and a waste of time. These could include work-at-home jobs paying high salaries for simple work and sales or pyramid schemes. “Searching for jobs is not always easy and what may sound too good to be true probably is,” said Steve J. Bernas, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois.

“Job hunters need to take appropriate measures to avoid being deceived by scams.” The BBB offers some tips for students when looking for summer job opportunities: • If you are offered a job without a formal interview or job application, it is most likely a scam. Do not provide any personal or financial information, as it can lead to identity theft. • If the employer does not provide you with the details of the job in writing, be wary. When you have details in writing, be sure to read them carefully and ask questions. • If the employer does not have
a website or contact information is missing, consider that a red flag. • If the employer requires fees for training, background checks or drug tests, it is likely to be a scam. • If an employer offers you a lot of money for simple work or to work at home, it is most likely too good to be true. • If you cannot find reviews of the business anywhere on the Internet, be wary as it is likely to be a scam. Check the potential employer’s BBB Business Review to see if the employer has a good rating. If you experience or have experienced a scam, report it to your local BBB at www.bbb.org.

On the road David Rogers’ Big Bugs invades the Morton Arboretum LISLE – Larger-than-life insects are invading Chicagoland this summer, as The Morton Arboretum celebrates the world of bugs with David Rogers’ Big Bugs exhibition. Through Sept. 8, the Arboretum will be a hive of activity highlighting our insect world. Stare up in amazement at 12 largerthan-life insect sculptures and feel what it’s like to be a bug! On display will be an oversize bee hive, lady bug, assassin bug, damselfly, spider, daddy long legs, praying mantis, dragon fly, grasshopper and three ants - some nearly 10 feet tall. The sculptures are built using natural materials including willow, cedar, walnut, and other woods, supported by metal armatures. “When you’re standing in the shadow of these giant sculptures, you really get a feel for what it’s like to be a bug,” says Mary Samerdyke, manager of interpretation. “This exhibit helps you see bugs in a new way and appreciate the many ways bugs help us even when we don’t realize it! Kids of all ages really respond to David Rogers’ Big Bugs and it’s exciting to see visitors experiencing new things—such as insect petting zoos or edible bugs — and having fun while learning.” To celebrate the exhibition, the Arboretum is offering interactive, bugthemed activities all summer long. Throughout the summer, kids can pick up their free Official Bug Detective Guide and uncover the truth about bugs as they explore the exhibit. Continue exploring the world of bugs in the Children’s Garden through our self-guided drop-in programs. In June, test your skills in a bug board game and make a ladybug mask at our Lovely Ladybugs program. Then learn about ants and make an a-mazeing craft at Ants in Your Plants. In July, check out Splendid Spiders, where you can discover where spiders live and how they help gardens. Then, at Grand Grasshoppers, learn all about grasshoppers and why they’re
so noisy. Come August, it’s all about bugs with wings. At From Water to Wings, learn about dragonflies and make a winged craft. At Butterflies and Blossoms, find out facts about butterflies and create a disguise. This September, it’s Mantis Mania: Spotting these camouflaged creatures can be harder than you think! Find out some of the unique habits a mantis has and make a camouflaged creature to take home. At Busy Bees, buzz around like a busy little honey bee, make a bee mask and find out what all the buzz is about. Children’s Garden drop-in programming is sponsored by Navistar. The Morton Arboretum is an internationally recognized outdoor tree museum on 1,700 acres. Plant collections, scientific research and education programs support the mission to plant and conserve trees and other plants for a greener, healthier and more beautiful world. Designed with natural landscapes, the grounds include the award-winning, four-acre interactive Children’s Garden, the oneacre Maze Garden, plus specialty gardens, 16 miles of trails and nine miles of roads. Visitor experiences include the open-air tram ride, guided walks, Arbor Day celebrations, concerts, art shows, Fall Color Festival, and special exhibits. The Arboretum welcomes more than 800,000 visitors annually and serves more than 35,600 members. Located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, the Arboretum is open daily 7 a.m.
until sunset. Learn more at mortonarb.org. Nonmember admission rates to The Morton Arboretum are $12 for adults ages 18-64 ($8 on Wednesday), $11 for seniors ages 65 and over ($7 on Wednesday), $9 for children ages 2-17 ($6 on Wednesday) and free for children under age 2.
