Summer Solstice Princeton Chamber organizes ‘hot’ shopping event By Goldie Currie firstname.lastname@example.org
PRINCETON – The Princeton Chamber of Commerce has planned a “sizzling” event to help kick-off the first day of Summer 2013. This Friday more than 25 Chamber businesses will keep their doors open a little later to attract shoppers looking for a good deal, a good time or just a reason to check out what Princeton’s downtown has to offer. Summer Solstice will promote local shopping while featuring wine, food tasting and savings. Princeton Chamber of Commerce Director Kim Frey said the goal is for shoppers to fill Main Street and enjoy a nice summer evening. “Our shoppers will be welcomed into the participating businesses during special hours, many offering specials of their own and great savings,” Frey said. “In addition to the benefits for the shopper, we are hoping this event will boost sales for our retailers.” The event will kick-off at 4 p.m. The shopping journey begins at the Chamber office where a complimentary wine glass and passport will be waiting for each shopper. The passport will list participating locations. Shoppers who visit a listed location will have their passport punched. At the end of the journey, passports will be turned in for a chance to win a $100 Chamber gift card. “Whenever there is an opportunity to encourage ‘shop local,’ the Princeton Chamber of Commerce wants to act on it,” Frey said. “We want to see our community support our local businesses as Main Street is the heartbeat of our community.”

Are you really registered? It’s not too late to register for federal assistance By Donna Barker email@example.com
PRINCETON —Bureau County residents should make sure they have correctly registered for individual federal disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
On Monday, Bureau County ESDA coordinator Kris Donarski said the preliminary gathering of information, taken after the spring storms and flooding that occurred between April 16 and May 5, is not all that is needed for individuals to be registered with FEMA for individual disaster assistance.
“After the spring storms and flooding that took place between April 16 and May 5, many affected residents have spoken to representatives from insurance companies and state and local agencies about disaster assistance and may be under the mistaken impression they have registered with FEMA’” Donarski said.

Hundreds of shoppers took advantage of the eighth annual More on 34 garage sale with a wide range of vendors ready to sell their treasures, crafts, antiques, household furnishings and collectibles.
PRINCETON — An estimated 40 percent of households with children now have the mothers as the primary income providers, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center. To help people make adjustments to that changing work role for couples, John Reinert, a licensed clinical professional counselor with the North Central Behavioral Health Systems, said there are things which couples can do to make their adjustments as easy as possible. The North Central Behavioral Health Systems serves the counties of Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam, Stark, Fulton and McDonough. There are a broad range of factors which enter into an individual’s or a couple’s attitudes and feelings about the woman being the primary provider, Reinert said. Those factors include whether the situation was forced upon the couple by the market place or was created by the couple’s preference. Other factors can include the couples’ ages, socioeconomic status, education level, cultural beliefs, levels of support from family and friends, and the emotional willingness to go “counter the current,” Reinert said. In his experience and study, the greater degree of choice for a couple yields fewer problems and concerns in most situations, Reinert said. If both partners “buy into” the decision they will “live it” more easily and with fewer problems, he added. The Pew Research Center study, with a focus on married breadwinner mothers, also showed that younger, more highlyeducated couples will better accept “running counter to the current.” Also, these couples will frequently be more flexible in their acceptance of the situation even if it is imposed on them. But regardless of their age and acceptance levels, men generally seem to face some loss of self esteem and self worth if they are either under-employed, less well-employed than their partner, or are stay-at-home dads, Reinert said.

BCR judged best in the state of Illinois! BCR Advertising/Editorial Departments bring home awards By BCR Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
SPRINGFIELD — The Bureau County Republican was honored several times on Thursday and Friday at the annual Illinois Press Association Convention, held at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield. Besides winning 25 individual awards between the two departments, the BCR also brought home the Harold and Eva White Memorial sweepstakes trophy, which means the newspaper was judged editorially as the best newspaper of its size in the state of Illinois. “Sometimes it’s difficult to gauge how good
a job you are doing as a newspaper,” said BCR Publisher Sam Fisher. “But when you’re judged as the best newspaper in the state when you compete against 50 other newspapers of your size, you’ve got to get a sense of worth. I’m proud of the editorial staff, and it just reinforces in my mind how committed they are as journalists.” BCR Editor Terri Simon and BCR Sales Development Manager Pam Pratt-Marsh also commented on their staffs’ commitment to the newspaper and their readers. “I am very proud of the editorial staff,” Simon said. “While I
already know we have the best newsroom, it’s very nice when our newspaper peers who judged this contest also acknowledge it. This staff, without exception, is committed to producing a great newspaper, and these awards are a testament to how hard our folks work.” “The advertising staff spends a great deal of time creating and developing products that will help our advertisers be successful,” Pratt-Marsh said. “It’s nice to see that others understand the commitments we make every day to help present our customers to our readers.” Aside from the sweepstakes trophy for editorial excellence, the

Did the bank look the other way? More Crundwell issues surfacing By Derek Barichello Shaw Media Service
DIXON – Had Fifth Third Bank’s predecessor flagged two fishy cash withdrawals Rita Crundwell made more than a decade ago, it could have saved the city $40 million of the $54 million she swiped, the city’s attorney says. Court documents filed last week show the former comptroller was allowed to withdraw cash straight from Dixon’s capital development fund at the bank at least twice; the total was more than $38,000. Crundwell is serving nearly 20 years in prison for federal wire fraud. It took her 22 years to perpetrate what appears to be the largest municipal theft in U.S. history. The information is part of the city’s response to Fifth Third Bank’s assertion that it should not be included in a lawsuit laying blame on the bank and auditors for Crundwell’s theft. On May 25, 2000, Old Kent Bank, a predecessor to Fifth Third, allowed Crundwell to withdraw $29,032.16 in cash from the city’s capital development fund, according to the withdrawal slip copied in court documents. On July 19, 2000, Crundwell was allowed to
“(Fifth Third Bank) had full knowledge that, based upon Rita Crundwell’s other personal bank accounts at Fifth Third Bank, she did not earn monies from her horse business to sustain her lavish lifestyle and the expenditures she made from the RSCDA account.” Devon Bruce withdraw $19,080.55 in cash, another slip shows. Both slips are signed by Crundwell and no one else. That’s a violation of “reasonable banking standards” and should not have been allowed to occur, argues Dixon’s attorney, Devon Bruce. The mere attempt should have flagged a report to the bank’s fraud detection staff, Bruce said. The transaction also should have been reported to her supervisors. If the appropriate actions were taken, the theft would have been caught at that time, thus saving Dixon the $40 million Crundwell subsequently stole, he said. “At all relevant times, any bank with one or more municipal accounts owes a duty arising out of its contractual relationship with its customer municipalities not to dispense tens of thou-

sands of dollars in cash to anyone, fiduciary or not, from a municipal account,” Bruce wrote. The bank “intentionally and deliberately ‘turned a blind eye’ to the tens of millions of dollars and thousands of checks Crundwell wrote for purely personal items” from a secret account, dubbed RSCDA, that the former Dixon comptroller created to siphon money from the city, he said. The bank argues that it should not be party to the suit because of the Illinois Fiduciary Obligations Act, which protects banks from liability for its dealings with an account holder’s dishonest finances. But that’s only if the bank is considered to have acted in “good faith,” and that was not the case, Bruce argues. He said the bank knew Crundwell was acting improperly – that she
lacked the authority to open the secret account – but failed to investigate, he said. A valid resolution is required to open a city account, former Fifth Third Bank manager Amanda Powers said in a deposition. No resolution was presented. Bruce said the bank was required by law to maintain procedures that allowed it to know the true identity of each customer, and when an account is opened by an entity and not an individual. Powers said the bank knew that as the city’s treasurer, Crundwell was allowed to sign and deposit checks into the account that were made payable to “treasurer of the city of Dixon” or “city of Dixon,” and nothing else. Crundwell, however, signed and deposited made out to “treasurer” only. Powers said that violated banking standards, and Crundwell never should have been allowed to deposit checks from the city and pay them to herself because she was never given authorization from the city. Bruce said the “sheer number of checks” Crundwell wrote that went through the secret account and the many checks written in excess of $50,000 were clear “red flags” of theft.

FEMA for disaster assistance, including calling the FEMA helpline at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Residents who use 711 Relay or Video Relay Services should call 800-6213362. The toll free numbers operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Bureau County residents can also register for individual FEMA disaster assistance by going online at wwww. disasterassistance. gov, or by web-enabled
phones at m.fema.gov. As reported earlier in the Bureau County Republican, Bureau County residents should have the following information available when registering for disaster assistance: Social Security number; insurance information; current mailing address; current phone number; address of the damaged property; and a brief description of the damages. On Monday, Donarski said this is the first
time in her knowledge that Bureau County has been declared eligible for federal individual disaster assistance, though the county has been declared eligible before for government federal disaster assistance. Again, the registration for federal assistance is done directly with FEMA and not through her office, Donarski said. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.
impacted by the man’s other interests and parts of himself he values. The most problematic situation is one in which the man is fully focused on his job or career and has no significant other interests upon which he can focus and can gain worth. However, adjustments are not always easy either for the woman who becomes the primary breadwinner, Reinert said. Society continues to view women as primary caregivers for their families all too often, including care to chil-
dren, spouse and parents. A woman who is career focused, as many primary breadwinners are, may continue to feel the need to be both breadwinner and caregiver, he said. “This is generally a Herculean and unrealistic role expectation,” Reinert said. “Generally, the stronger her support system the easier the transition will be.” Reinert said for couples in non-traditional roles, they will need to be in solid communication with each other to safeguard their mar-
riage, adding they will also need to seek external support systems individually or as a couple. The couple whose lives are “running counter to the current” will need a special strength to succeed, Reinert said. While the woman can support her partner to explore his other strengths to gain self worth, the man will need to be equally present to support his partner and understand the non-traditional value she brings to the relationship and family.

The bank had software put into place to monitor theft, and Bruce argues the bank staff who monitored the software and implemented the banking procedures “intentionally chose not to investigate further.” The secret account made Crundwell one of Fifth Third bank’s largest customers, and so the bank benefitted by allowing her to open and maintain it, Bruce said. The bank has until July 10 to file its response to Bruce’s arguments. A

hearing is set for 10 a.m. July 16. In its initial defense, Fifth Third Bank said the city itself was negligent in detecting the theft, and Fifth Third is not liable for the results of that negligence. It does not owe the city any money because the bank no longer has any of the city’s funds that “in equity and good conscience should be returned.” Also, it says the city can’t claim a breach of contract because no con-
tract has been provided in court documents, and because the secret account was not listed as a city account, among other defenses. The city’s lawsuit also names its former auditors – CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, Clifton Gunderson LLP, Janis Card Co. LLC, Samuel S. Card, CPA, P.C., Samuel S.

On the street
More on 34 was last weekend. We asked folks: What is the greatest treasure you’ve ever found at a garage sale?
“I always find lots of stuff for our camper. I’m also a collector of odds and ends.” Julie Piper, Princeton
“I bought a Kewanee Boiler salesman sample for $40 today.” Ken Larson, Sandwich
“Two years ago I found two wooden wagon wheels in Wyanet. They were in excellent condition for $100 each.” Garry Buzard, Walnut
“I collect nut choppers, and I found one today!” Sandie Gradert, Buda
From the editor’s desk What a great day Father’s Day turned out to be! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and carved out some time to enjoy the fellows who are special in their lives. I saw a lot of folks at Wyanet Locker on Friday and Saturday, so I’m betting there were a host of cook-outs going on to honor Dad and Grandpa and others. Don’t forget … you don’t have to wait for Father’s Day (or Mother’s Day) to honor those special folks in your lives. ••• Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Illinois Press Association Convention in Springfield. It’s an annual event, where newspapers’ editorial and advertising departments/staff members are honored couple with a host of seminars, dinners/luncheons and guest speakers. As always, it was a fun-filled and busy two days. If you haven’t read our story on Page 2, it’s my pleasure to tell you the BCR Terri Editorial Department brought how the Simon Harold and Eva White Memorial sweepstakes trophy, which means your hometown newspaper was judged by our peers as the best newspaper of our size in the state of Illinois. That is huge! Competing against several other newspaper of our circulation size, we topped them all and brought home the hardware again. The BCR has won the trophy 13 times in the past 21 years, and it never gets old. There is no one person in the BCR newsroom that gets all the credit — rather it truly is a team effort, one that requires much dedication and commitment to producing a great newspaper for you, our readers. If you see your BCR Editorial staff out and about — Donna Barker, Lyle Ganther, Sarah Maxwell, Goldie Currie, Kevin Hieronymus, Rita Roberts, Greg Wallace and Barb Kromphardt — out and about, make sure you give them a welldeserved pat on the back. Clearly, they deserve it! Also, you’ll want to applaud the BCR’s Advertising Department — Pam Pratt-Marsh, Ashley Oliver, Angie Davis, Erica Oertel, Phyllis Fargher, Todd Olin and Jodie Seibert — who also brought home their own share of awards from the IPA. Their commitment and creativity to helping advertisers develop a sales strategy is impressive, and it’s cool the state noticed those efforts. Congratulations! ••• It’s official. Friday is the first day of summer! Only six months until Christmas! ••• Thought for today: “Whenever I was upset by something in the papers, Jack always told me to be more tolerant, like a horse flicking away flies in the summer.” Jackie Kennedy. ••• I happened to be driving by the Alexander Park Pool yesterday, and I couldn’t help but notice all the fun going on at the pool. It took me back about 40 or so years, when the place to be in the summer was at the swimming pool. It just looked like summer when I drove by, and if I hadn’t had other obligations, I would have just parked my car in the parking lot and watched all the fun. There’s something so innocent and full of life when you see kids swimming, splashing and living life to the fullest. Aaahhh ... ••• I was out working in one of my flower gardens the other afternoon, and the mosquitoes were absolutely awful. No kidding. It was about 1 p.m., and their buzzing was nearly driving me crazy. I’m sure you’ve read our continuing coverage on mosquitoes and the dreaded West Nile Virus. I think this is going to be one of those years, so be vigilant, my friends. ••• Are you enjoying the warm weather? Are you taking some time to visit with family, friends, neighbors? Are you using your front porch, your deck, your patio ... or are they sitting vacant without you. Take time for you. The other stuff will wait. Breathe. Exhale. And remember ... you are important to me and the BCR.

TO Letters THE Editor
More effects than you might think To the Editor, In response to the Department of Agriculture: Apparently Clean Line Energy Partners does its best work behind closed doors making deals with select groups without public input. Politicians let the banks off the hook for bankrupting our country at taxpayer expense leaving homeowners to lose their homes in foreclosure. Now they face losing homes to back door energy marketeers speculating Enron-style on projected energy markets strictly for personal profit. Has the Department of Agriculture researched Clean Line’s business practices or history? Politicians allow this stimulus plundering at the expense of tax-paying citizens who stand to lose property to an out-of-state company who wants the power to use eminent domain. Clean Line’s past history shows they are likely to turn the reigns over to EDP Renewables, a foreign energy giant, once routes are established, sending billions in tax dollars right out of the country. Horizon Wind/ EDP (previously owned by Michael Skelly) is currently collecting millions through university programs with sponsored interns having the ability to manipulate studies to their advantage. Jimmy Glotfelty ran the Department of
Energy under the Bush administration, giving Enron a free pass. While director, he helped establish the ground rules for this industry and stands to make billions in the private sector. Would his clout have any influence on FERC decisions — a branch under DOE? Clean Line claims they have no opposition; however, 11 Eastern governors have written congress rejecting CLEP’s proposals with thousands of landowners voicing opposition along their routes. CLEP wants to give wind a fair chance in the market? The Illinois Portfolio Standard (CLEP staff helped establish the IPS) shows wind got an unfair advantage while solar got the shaft being put on the back burner for several years. Is the Department of Agriculture going to look into the negative effects of wind turbines and local weather changing significantly over the past few years as more large-scale wind farms are installed perhaps contributing to more deadly weather patterns? “Given the present installed capacity and
the projected growth in installation of wind farms across the world, I feel wind farms, if spatially large enough, might have noticeable impacts on local to regional meteorology,” Liming Zhou, associate professor, State University, New York, Albany - authored paper published April 29 - Nature Climate Change said in e-mail to Discovery News. According to research, the warming surface temperate increased from 2003 to 2011, which is consistent with an increase in the number of wind turbines in the Texas area used for this study. Because this warming could impact crop yields of local farmers or have an even larger effect on the increase in global temperatures, study authors say more research is needed. Politicians should investigate projects fully before dropping free reigns to the likes of Clean Line Energy Partners/Enron Clone because the economic/ environmental outcome may not only affect the landowners defending property but our own fragile climate.

Privacy, please! To the Editor, Wednesday afternoon my wife and I stopped for lunch at a restaurant in downtown Princeton. Seated at the table adjacent to us, were three young women whom I gather work at doctor’s offices in town. Though no names were mentioned, the three talked openly about the health issues of several patients, their ages and physical description. They also discussed several patients who had converted to Medicare coverage and attributed specific remarks to one elderly woman in particular. Obviously, I found their conversation unsettling, and I’m left with a nagging question. Why is it that you require me to sign a medical information privacy/HIPAA form, when you talk about the health conditions of your patients in public in the presence of strangers? Do you think because you didn’t mention names that such conversation is appropriate and legal? I’ve heard the HIPAA spiel many times, and it is my understanding you are not permitted to share a patient’s private medical information with anyone, not even their spouse, without the patient’s signed approval on a HIPAA form! If my wife and I still lived in Princeton, it is very likely we would have known some of the patients you were gossiping about. Jack Helser Granville

The Mendota baseball and softball teams took a big hit with the announcement this week of the IHSA’s new enrollment classifications for the 2013-14 school year. The St. Bede boys basketball program may have hit a home run. The Bruins will drop from 2A to 1A, no longer having the enrollment multiplier applied. Once the Bruins win two regionals, the multiplier would come into play and send them back to 2A for six years. St. Bede coach Mike Kirlmartin said he was surprised, but doesn’t matter really. When he told the kids, he said they didn’t really have much feeling either way. “If it were the last two years we would have been tough to beat,” he said. The Lady Bruins, who have won three regionals in the past five years, will remain in 2A. Both Mendota teams have been bumped from 2A to 3A. Mendota has an enrollment of 622, just 12 students over the new cap (610) for Class 2A. The cutoff was 614 last year. Mendota’s basketball and volleyball programs were bumped to 3A in 2012-13. In recent years, the IHSA went to a new reclassification system to divide each sport evenly by class rather than by a blanket over each individual school. The postseason success of private schools determined if they
• Mendota baseball and softball (2A to 3A)
• Who’s down St. Bede boys basketball (2A to 1A). were assessed the enrollment multiplier. No other area programs were affected by the cutoffs. Princeton (551) stays in 2A for boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball and 3A for volleyball in a four-class system. Boys and girls soccer, cross country and wrestling will remain 1A and boys golf, and track will all remain in 2A out of three classes. There are only two classes for girls golf and boys and girls tennis with Princeton among the smaller schools. With anticipated declining enrollments, no PHS sport should be in danger of moving up and the Tigress volleyball program is hoping to drop back to 2A where it was prior to 2012. Bureau Valley (335) and Hall (384) will again be 1A schools for cross country and track and 2A schools for baseball, basketball, softball and volleyball. St. Bede (468.6 with multiplier) will remain in 1A for track and cross country and in 2A for baseball, softball, girls basketball and volleyball. LaMoille/Ohio and DePue teams will play in 1A for all of its sports. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com
DePaepe puts the special in Special Olympics By Dixie Schroeder Shaw Media Service
Cheryl DePaepe has been working with the special needs population in one form or another since 1971. She started teaching special education at Putnam County in 1971 and took a group to participate in the Chicago Special Olympics games, DePaepe said it was then decided it would be a good idea to host games locally, and the idea of a “Special Sports Jamboree” was born. In 1977, the group was invited to the Special
Olympics offices in Bloomington to see if there was interest in starting a Special Olympics chapter. DePaepe, the longtime director for the Starved Rock Area, said when Special Olympics started, it was a once a year track meet. The area athletes’ interest has grown, and the local Special Olympics chapter now participates in 13 different sports throughout the year. Locally the group hosts a district basketball event, a cross country and snowshoe competition, an individual
basketball skills event, a district boccie tournament, spring track and field games, golf skills and five-hole golf, a volleyball competition, a bowling competition and a motor activity training event. Throughout the years the group has also served athletes in tennis, aquatics, field hockey, power lifting and equestrian. DePaepe said the athletes have to be 8 or older to participate in sports events, but during the past couple of years, the group has begun to serve younger athletes.
“We are looking at 6 and 7 year olds who will be transitioning into Special Olympics. We currently have a young athlete program that is run by Easter Seals in Ottawa. It is for individuals ages 2 through 11,” DePaepe said. With all these events going on throughout the year, staffing becomes a predominant issue. DePaepe always did Special Olympics on the side, but after retirement, she became a full-time administrator for the program. The rest of the event staff are volunteers. “Prior to games I could have
anywhere from two to 12 or so people,” she said. “For example we have people come in to fold T-shirts and put boxes together. But I have a core group of about five to six people that help me do all kind of things that I need to do.” In addition to those volunteers, there are about 300 to 500 “day of” event people who come to help the actual day of an event. “We have a core group of people that volunteer year after year after year,” said DePaepe. “Some of the volun-

Team members are (front row, left) Ashley Phillips, Julie Dodd, Mollie Bates, Annie Miller, Anna Konzak; and (back row) coach Bill Phillips, Abby Jaques, Kaila Dunfee, Taylor Pettit, Monica Monroe, Tara Kunkel, Madison Menzel, Kaylan Trumpinsk, coach Scott Trumpinski, and coach Rick Menzel.
From Page 9 teers have been around as long as I have been.” There is a progression to the events. Local area events are held, and the gold medal winners move on to a sectional or state tournament. This leads to something going on almost every weekend of the year throughout the state of Illinois. Of course, there is a financial component to all of this. “We provide all of the events free to the athletes and their families,” she said. “The only thing we ask the teams in any form to provide is transportation to the events. We are very fortunate that all of the venues we use donate their facilities. A lot of our food products are donated when we provide lunches.” However there are shirts, awards and other incidentals that have to be paid for. According to DePaepe, this is where the fundraising efforts come in to play. There is a sponsored athlete campaign aimed at the local service clubs and businesses. Special Olympics, along with local law enforcement, also sponsors a “Polar Plunge” in Yorkville. DePaepe said last year this was the biggest fundraiser with more than 400 people participating. Another fundraising component is an annual auction on Aug. 1. DePaepe enjoys her work and doesn’t like to admit that some people say she is good at what she does. “I could not do this without the volunteers,” she said. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com
