17 and voting? By Goldie Currie email@example.com
PRINCETON – A new state law now allows 17 year olds to vote in primary elections if they turn 18 by the general election day. Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation last week as part of his agenda to increase participation in democracy and ensure every voice is heard in Illinois, according to a press release issued by Quinn’s office. “Our democracy is strongest when more voters raise their voices at the ballot box,” Quinn stated. Kate Morrow, a recent Princeton High School graduate, said the new law does not make sense. “I understand that it allows the voter to have a choice in who they will be voting for when they’re actually 18, but I also know very few 17 year olds who have the time, interest and patience to put into researching a large panel of candidates for a primary,” she said. Morrow said this new law might be one that does nothing because 17 year olds won’t vote anyway. “But it opens a door for both uninformed and immature voters, which tips the balance of this country’s democratic system,” she said. “I definitely believe that young people should have a say, but ultimately, the voting age is 18, and this just adds a feeling of ‘conditionality’ to the law, which may have wider repercussions.” Although Bureau County Clerk Kami Hieronymus understands Quinn’s concept of letting 17 year olds have a better say in their voting, she strongly believes it won’t make much of a difference in

Illinois looks at increasing the speed limit By Donna Barker firstname.lastname@example.org
PRINCETON — Motorists on certain Illinois interstates and highways could see higher speed limits in the future. The Illinois Generally Assembly has passed Senate Bill 2356 which would increase speed limits on Illinois’ rural freeways and certain highways from 65 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour. The bill was sent on June 20 to Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk for consideration.
According to the Illinois General Assembly website, the bill would provide the maximum speed limit outside an urban district for any vehicle to be 70 miles per hour on any interstate highway, as well as on all or part of other highways designated by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The affected highways would need to have at least four lanes of traffic and have a separation between the roadways moving in opposite directions. The proposed law does have an opt-out ordinance option for urban counties.
On Monday, Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said he’s not opposed to the increased speed limit change. When he learned to drive, the speed limit on interstates was 70 miles per hour, and the speed limit on secondary roads was 65 miles per hour. Legislators are just trying to put the speed limit back to where things used to be, the sheriff said. In his opinion, the biggest mistake made by lawmakers was allowing semi trucks to travel at the same speed as the other vehicles, Thompson said.

Summer needs hit food pantry Lanham: A bittersweet endeavor By Donna Barker email@example.com
SHEFFIELD — Summer months can be a challenge for families because children are home and not receiving their breakfast and lunch at school, according to Mary Lanham, manager of the Western Bureau County Food Pantry. On Monday, Lanham said the local food
pantry is there to help meet some of those summer needs. Actually, the number of people served through the Western Bureau County Food Pantry has stayed fairly steady with about 75 to 80 households served each month. About 55 percent of those households are families with children 18 years and younger. There is also a significant number of elderly people who come for assistance
from the food pantry, Lanham said, and it’s very difficult for them to come and ask for help. There are also unemployed people and underemployed people seeking help. There are also households in which one of the adults has lost his/her job. There are people with no health insurance, and sometimes, a medical need takes the money which would have been used otherwise for food, she said.

Bigfoot Band Camp ... a music, arts and camping festival By Dixie Schroeder email@example.com
MCNABB – Music, art and lots of fun will be the agenda at the third annual Bigfoot Band Camp on July 25-28 at the Putnam County Conservation area in rural McNabb. More than 30 national, regional and local acts will be performing live on two stages throughout this four-day and threenight classic event. Producer of the event, Sean Dunn of Band Camp Productions wants people to know this is a family event. “We have worked extremely hard to make this affordable for families,” said Dunn. “From the food to the camping to the entertainment and parking, there will be something for everyone. We will have local police, ambulance and weather-watchers on site to ensure security and safety for our event attendees.” Dunn also wants the public to know there is
a wide variety of music styles that will be featured at the concert. “Festival-goers will see and hear rock, blues, country and western,” he said. “That is just the start of it. With two stages going, it will be non-stop entertainment.” Dunn said Band Camp Productions, a concert and festival production company, has signed some of the biggest and most cutting edge performing artists to perform at this year’s event. Headlining acts will include Kashmir who performs “The Led Zeppelin Show.” Frank Livingston, as Jimmy Page, nails every aspect of this performance and sound in exact detail, he said. The Voodoo Fix is a national rock-n-roll act from Los Angeles. The Voodoo Fix is scheduled on Friday night. For the rockabilly fans, The Krank Daddies will be performing. For the true
blues fans, Jimmy Nick and Don’t Tell Mama will be on hand. As a youngster, Nick was a finalist in the Chicago Blues Guitar Sling Challenge in 2012 and the winner of the River City Blues society’s blues competition in Memphis, Tenn. Also from Chicago, who just finished playing at the Taste of Chicago and Milwaukee’s ‘Summerfest, is Overman, a highdemand festival band. Another performer is Burlesque Le’Moustache. If you have seen the History Channel’s “American Pickers,” you will know Danielle, also known in the burlesque world as Dannie Diesel. She choreographs her very own burlesque troupe from the Quad Cities with her sister Molly Tov as emcee. They will be performing a new show on the main stage July 27. Other bands signed to perform include Audiobon, Dogs of Fortune, Red Sulfur Springs, Machine

Have you seen a pet left in a hot car? Protecting four-legged friends from the heat By Goldie Currie email@example.com
PRINCETON – Leaving a pet inside a vehicle on a hot summer day can be a deadly decision. As the heat inside a vehicle quickly rises, pets suffer irreversible organ damage and eventually death, according to the Humane Society of the United States. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise to dangerous levels. The Humane Society gives an example saying on an 85-degree day, the temperatures inside a vehicle with the windows open can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperatures will reach 120 degrees. Even when the temperature outside is a balmy 72 degrees, the temperatures inside
a car can rocket to a fatal 116 degrees in less than an hour. Leaving a pet in the vehicle can also risk the possibility of receiving a misdemeanor charge. Princeton Police Chief Tom Root confirmed his department has taken complaints from people who have witnessed someone leaving a pet inside a vehicle on a hot day. He said most calls are from someone who left their pet in the vehicle while they’ve gone in to do some shopping in Walmart. When this happens, usually the officer will locate the vehicle owner within the store to be questioned. Root said leaving pets in the vehicle is a cruelty to animals, and people can be ticketed with a misdemeanor. According to the ASPCA, which works to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals, symptoms of overheating in pets include excessive panting or difficulty breath-
ing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor or even collapse. The ASPCA said animals with flat faces, like Pugs or Persian cats, are more prone to heat stroke since they cannot pant as effectively. These pets, along with the elderly, overweight and those with heart or lung diseases, should be kept in air-conditioned rooms as much as possible. Another thing to remember during the heat is not to leave animals lingering on hot asphalt. According to the ASPCA, being close to the ground, a pet’s body can heat up quickly and sensitive paw pads can burn. The ASPCA warns if it’s suspected that a pet is suffering from heat stroke, get help from a veterinarian immediately. If someone witnesses a pet left in the vehicle in the heat, they are encouraged to contact their local police station. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.
Tips for keeping pets safe this summer • Sunburn is a hazard for pets who spend time outdoors. Use a pet-safe sunscreen to protect pets from the sun’s rays, which can cause skin cancer especially of the ears and nose. • Keep pets inside moving cars during travel. Letting dogs travel with their head outside the open car window is dangerous. Flying particles and debris can cause eye damage, and some pets have fallen out of moving vehicles. • Dogs should never ride unsecured in the back of pickup trucks, regardless of how slow the vehicle is moving. • Take pets on walks in the early mornings or late evening, not in the heat of midday, and remember that hot pavement can burn the pads of pet’s paws. • Make sure pets have plenty of fresh water. Change it several times a day. Source: The Humane Society of the United States.

Looking back ... moving on By David Giuliani Shaw Media Service
The message is simple these days from Dixon city officials: Everything’s good now, so let’s move on. This follows last year’s scandal, in which federal authorities found out former city Comptroller Rita Crundwell made off with $53 million over a couple of decades. In April, the city revealed that then-Dixon Public Works Director Shawn Ortgiesen racked up $13,521 in personal expenses on his city-issued credit card from April 2007 to March. By the time he was caught, he had paid back only $4,890. Some critics blame these scandals on Dixon’s commission form of government. They say part-time commissioners, who have executive authority over designated departments, aren’t qualified to run the city on a day-today basis. But Commissioner Dennis Considine said in a city council meeting the other day that most people in Dixon seem to favor retaining the commission form of government. He, like most of his colleagues, resisted the idea of hiring a city administrator who would have day-to-day control of government, with the council overseeing the administrator and setting policies. Most cities have administrators these days, especially those the size of Dixon. But Considine doesn’t want any one person to have too much power. Commissioner Jeff Kuhn had simi-
lar fears. He questioned whether an administrator should have power over day-to-day operations, saying he already had daily conversations with supervisors of his designated departments about what is done and what needs to be done. Commissioner Colleen Brechon wondered whether an administrator would get in the way of an already efficient system. Mayor Jim Burke, however, favored a powerful administrator. Police Chief Danny Langloss, who recently received the title of “special assistant to the council,” is proposing hiring an administrator but is apparently seeking to reduce the commission’s authority over day-to-day matters. Ideally, he said at the council meeting, commissioners would let department heads handle day-to-day operations with the oversight of an administrator. Since May, a task force has been meeting to consider different forms of government. The panel is expected to make a recommendation on the form of government best for Dixon. The recommendation will be nonbinding, but city officials have talked about putting it on the November 2014 ballot. But they’re none too excited about changing the form of government. And they’ve had that feeling for a while. In October – six months after the

Speed limit From Page 1 Whatever the speed limit, drivers need to pay close attention when driving, even more attention at any increased speed, Thompson said, adding public safety is always the main factor. The Illinois House approved the speed limit increase bill with an 85 to 30 vote. The Senate approved the bill on a 41 to 6 vote. Voting in favor of the bill was Rep. Frank Mautino (D-76th) of Spring Valley. Voting against the bill was Rep. Don Moffitt (R-74th) of Galesburg. On Monday, Mautino said he voted in favor of the bill because it would help bring Illinois into line with surrounding states that have 70 mph speed limits on their interstates. The increased speed limit in Illinois would help conform speed limits when crossing state lines. The change to increased speed limits would affect only the rural interstate areas and exclude the urban areas, he said. On Monday, Moffitt said this was a difficult vote for him. He did take into consideration neighboring states with higher speed limits, and he contacted his constituents for their input, including four different
From Page 1 As far as needs at the food pantry, Lanham said the recent Stamp Out Hunger food drive held by the local post office was a huge help for the food pantry. There was a great variety of things collected, which was nice for the families to get something different. The food pantry just ran out of those collected items last week, she said. The food pantry always has a need for the basics, like cereal, Lanham said. There is also a need for personal hygiene items which families can’t buy with their Link cards, things like shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant. Those things are almost like luxury items for the food pantry to be able to give families, she said. The board of directors for the food pantry is trying to move toward healthier food items for families. The board has asked the food pantry to give small
trucking firms in his district. The general consensus from the trucking firms was their trucks ran more efficiently between 62 and 65 mph, and the trucking firms would continue to run their trucks in that range, Moffitt said. He also contacted the Midwest Truckers Association, expecting the association to be in favor of the increased speed, but the association was neutral, Moffitt said. The association spokesperson said the dangerous situation was a few years ago when there was a split speed limit for trucks and other vehicles, with trucks having a 55 mph speed limit and cars having a 65 mph speed limit. The association’s concern was that the proposed speed limit would be uniform for cars and trucks, which it would be, Moffitt said. No one contacted him asking him to vote in favor of the bill, Moffitt added. For him, the overriding issue was public safety. If vehicles are going faster, it will take that much longer for them to stop. Also, since many drivers often drive over the 65 speed limit now, then how fast would the traffic being going with a 70 mph speed limit, Moffitt asked. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.
bags of fresh fruit to people, but that practice has been discontinued during the summer months because the food pantry does not have enough refrigeration to keep the fruit in good condition. The board has also asked that frozen vegetables be given to families. Hopefully, the food pantry will receive fresh garden produce this summer to distribute like it did last year, Lanham said. The small communities within the food pantry region have been very generous in their support of the food pantry, both in their monetary and food/supply donations to the pantry and also as volunteers. Lanham said the food pantry has a great group of volunteers who range in age from fourth grade to 80 years old. They work hard and are good-hearted. They stock shelves and help carry supplies out to cars for the patrons. They have a good time together while helping others, she said. Working at the Western Bureau

County Food Pantry can be a bittersweet-kind of thing, she said. “I’m sad that so many people are in this condition, worrying about how they will feed their children or themselves,” Lanham said. “But it’s so heartwarming to know that we all are looking out for each other. I think small towns are good at that.” Located at 123 S. Main St. in Sheffield, the Western Bureau County Food Pantry serves people in Buda, Sheffield, Mineral, Neponset and Manlius, though some people in Manlius are served through the Tri-County Opportunities Council food pantry in Princeton. The food pantry is open Wednesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. Generally, people can come to the food pantry once a month, but people with unexpected emergency situations won’t be turned away, Lanham said.

added to calculate the ages of young registers. The system will somehow have to override registered voters who are 17 and will have to calculate to confirm they will turn 18 by the general election. “It’s going to be another step for us to track and make sure that they are qualified to vote,” she said. Quinn signed the bill at Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire. The bill was proposed and pushed by a civics teacher and several students from the school. According to FairVote, 20 other states permit 17 year olds to vote in the primary election. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Edwin Dennis PRINCETON — Edwin J. “Ed” Dennis, 85, of Princeton passed away Sunday, July 7, 2013, at the Illinois Veterans Home in LaSalle. Born April 30, 1928, in Chicago to Joseph and Anna (Delygler) Domoszewski, he married Helen Golemba Jan. 6, 1950, in Chicago. She preceded him in death Edwin Dennis in 1988. He then married Mary Fulton-Neuhalfen Nov. 20, 1993, in St. Joseph Church in Henry. She survives. He graduated from Lane Tech High School in Chicago in 1946 and served in the U.S. Navy during the end of World War II. He worked as a carpenter for Accurate Home Supply, retiring in 1990.

She continued helping others well into her 80s frequently serving clients who were younger than she. Through her work at the hospital and in home health care, she would become well-known for her caring and compassion for others.

Even in what seemed like the darkest of time, she would point out to family that there were still reasons to be thankful and hopeful. Mary was a proud member of the DAR, obtaining membership after a 30-year journey into her ancestry. She was named Princeton’s “Mother of the Year” in 1960.

The program is designed to assist those households who are at risk during the hot summer months. According to the state of Illinois, those households are those that have a member 60 years of age or older, disabled, a child under 5 years old or households that have a medical need for summer assistance. To receive assistance, a household must prove it meets the income
Dixon From Page 3 Crundwell scandal came to light but before Ortgiesen’s surfaced – council members seemed fine with the way things were. “I certainly believe in the form of government we have,” Considine said in an interview. “It works as well as any form of government. I’m positive about it.” Brechon also was happy. “The city of Dixon has the best of all worlds,” she said. “The council has very dedicated members. Shawn Ortgiesen is the city engineer, involved in all aspects of city business. He is very competent. I am very confident working with him and the city attorney.” Kuhn said he had no “preconceived notions,” but added, “I have some trouble believing that if we had a city manager, none of this would have happened.” Kuhn, Brechon and
guidelines, have proof the energy bills are in the applicant’s name, provide photocopies of all household members’ Social Security cards and medical cards. The program runs from July 15 through July 26 or until funds are depleted. The gross income for a household for 30 days prior to the date of application cannot exceed the following: One person household, $1,436; two person household, $1,939; three person household, $2,441; four person household, $2,944; five person household, $3,446; and six person household, $3,949. To find the nearest location to apply, call Tammy Saenz/LIHEAP director at 800-323-5434 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Considine have been on the commission a couple of years. Commissioner David Blackburn, who has served two decades, has become much more silent since the Crundwell scandal. But he did speak up at the recent council meeting, saying he missed someone with Ortgiesen’s
experience. No scientific polls have been taken about Dixon residents’ view on their form of government. Is Considine’s assessment correct – that most people are happy with the way things are? Or Brechon’s view – that Dixon already has an efficient system? Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Perspective Bureau County
Serving Bureau County Since 1847
Sam R Fisher
From the editor’s desk Patriotism rang through the area last week, as we celebrated another Fourth of July. I hope you had the opportunity to spend some time with family and friends during the holiday. It’s not often the newspaper’s editorial department gets a holiday off, so this was especially sweet! There were some wonderful fireworks displays throughout the area. I hope you had the chance to attend at least one of these events. While there is always talk from those who wish the fireworks shows were bigger and longer, there is a remedy to that situation. It’s called opening your Terri wallet and donating to the cause. As we all Simon know, a fireworks display is not a cheap endeavor, so if you’d like to see bigger and better shows, you can always help financially. On the flip side of the fireworks coin, please take a moment to thank the folks who orchestrated/sponsored your local fireworks event. It takes a lot of time, energy and money to pull this festive and patriotic display off, and they deserve a pat on the back. On behalf of the Bureau County Republican, please know we appreciate your efforts. ••• Have you picked up your copy of our increasinglypopular Illinois Valley Living magazine yet? If not, you’ll want to get one soon. This Summer 2013 edition is jam-packed with stories about the people, places and things that make the Illinois Valley a special place to live. We’re already working on our fall edition, so if you have any story ideas, please feel free to send me an email at email@example.com. One thing to note in our summer edition, is our new Women of Distinction Award. Illinois Valley Living is asking you to nominate a woman from the Illinois Valley who goes the extra mile to enhance the life of others in our area. You can find a nomination form in the magazine or online at www.iilinoisvalleyliving.com. The deadline to nominate someone is 5 p.m. Aug. 1. After all the nominations are received, a panel of women from outside the area will select those Women of Distinction to be honored at a special luncheon on Oct. 17 at Deer Park Country Club in Oglesby. It will be a great event with lunch, speakers, special awards and great give-aways — all to honor the wonderful women in the area who make a difference. Give me a call at 815-875-4461, ext. 229, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. ••• How does your garden grow? While I haven’t picked anything out of my garden yet, it’s looking great. The Napa cabbage is almost ready, and it won’t be long for the cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and eggplants. This is just an idea, but if you find yourself with produce to spare, remember your local food pantries. Most of them accept fresh produce, and I guarantee there are folks who use those services who would enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor. Also, don’t forget your older neighbors and friends who might not be able to get out in the garden. I’m sure they would appreciate it too. For me, part of the fun of gardening is sharing with others. ••• Have you had time this summer to sit on the front porch, the backyard deck, the patio? If not, try to carve out some time to do so. We’ve become a nation who pulls the shades, locks the doors and turns on the computer or the TV. What if we turned off the TV/computer, unlocked the doors, refused to pull down the shades and decided to spend our summer evenings outside, while being serenaded by the crickets? Sounds just about perfect to me. Thought for the day: “The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you’ve had.” Anonymous. ••• Have a great week. And remember ... you are important to me and the BCR. BCR Editor Terri Simon can be reached at email@example.com.
TO Letter THE Editor
‘City of Pumps’
A blessing or a disaster?
To the Editor, For Princeton to grow we cannot ignore any longer what lies beneath the ground; it’s sewers. I’ve heard it said many cities have sewer back up issues – and it’s true. These comments, however, make it sound as though it’s a valid excuse for our problems; it isn’t. My overriding concern is our problem; how it affects our residents; and how we’re going to fix it. In 2003 two department heads addressed the city council on the condition of our 175 miles of sanitary sewer lines. They said we could be losing 50 percent of our sewer line capacity due to structural defects, sags in the lines, cracks, holes and misaligned pipes. They said, “The dilemma of the sanitary sewers has always been the same … undersized, underestimated and underground.” Since their presentation, the city has spent $40 million on various projects. Of this amount nothing that wasn’t mandated by the state of Illinois was spent on improving our sewer lines. There was work on lift stations and sewer extensions benefiting Greencroft, and a retention pond was built, but the root of our problem, our underground sewer lines, were all but ignored. Most everyone would like to see the city grow. The city owns property marketed for growth. To support the new water plant the city predicted that within 6.5 years, Princeton’s population will grow to 8,124. Assume for a minute this is accurate. What will it mean to an already stressed system if 424 people are added to our city and given access to our sewers? We can’t handle our current population as it is. Think about it; we put 12 pumps out, even if there’s a threat of heavy rain. No one should experience sewer back up, but many do. It’s the result of inadequate planning and neglect. It’s an underground, outof-sight problem that’s been set aside in favor of visual projects developed for the yet unfulfilled promise of growth which, if it occurs, could have an adverse effect on the quality of life of many more residents. The city is currently studying the flooding issues in the northeast area of town and in Greencroft. It’s needed, but it’s not enough. If we’re going to fix the totality of the problem, we need to perform a city-wide inspection of all sewer lines. Group them into five categories, from worse to best; the worse needing immediate attention. We then address the worst by determining how much it’ll cost to fix and then find a way to pay for it. When the worst are fixed, we move to the second worse and so on. We can’t ignore the problem any longer. It’s either a priority or it’s not. If it’s not, then community pride has diminished. If it’s not, we will have gone from being known as the once proud City of Elms and where Tradition meets Progress … to the City of Pumps. Commissioner Joel Quiram Princeton
To the Editor, In the Catholic Post, it states the face of the Diocese of Peoria will change July l when the first stage of major parish reorganization resulting from the ongoing “GROWING In Faith Together” takes effect. You have to wonder what is going to happen in the second stage, or the third or fourth stage. Instead of “GROWING in Faith Together,” I see in many areas parishioners “LOSING their Faith Together.” When I was the ADA director years ago, we had 198 Catholic churches in the Diocese of Peoria; now I find that we have only 158 Catholic churches in the Diocese, and that is not counting the losses when the churches merge. When I was the ADA director for St. Thomas More in Dalzell, we had 128 families that attended our church. After closing our church and re-opening it a year later, there are not more than 20 families that attend St. Thomas More Catholic Church today. Many families were disheartened because of what happened to our church and quit going to church or went to protestant churches in the area. St. Benedict’s in Ladd was closed like St. Thomas More in Dalzell, and now Ladd has no church to go to since St. Benedict’s has been torn down and the decision to sell the church hall is pending. I also hear many who belong to the “Knights of Columbus” have quit that organization too. As of July 1, 2014, we, too, will be merged with Holy Trinity Church in Cherry. We may be merged, but people in Dalzell will not travel many more miles to go to Cherry, when they can go to St. Bede or St. Joseph’s in Peru. St. Bede is just 1.5 miles down the road from Dalzell. We are trying to tell Father Pat Fixsen who now has to travel to Dalzell from Cherry and then has to travel to Arlington, along with serving Holy Trinity in Cherry, that we would be satisfied not merging and to continue what he presently does, giving us the opportunity to fulfill our religious duties. I also read where the Spring Valley churches will be merged into The Nativity of Our Lord Church (really what is St. Anthony’s presently). I see nothing wrong with Father Robert Spilman handling all the masses in the other churches in Spring Valley — Sts. Peter and Paul and The Immaculate Conception, like Father Pat Fixsen who has to travel to Dalzell and Arlington. Father Spilman will not have to travel to other towns because all the churches are in one town — Spring Valley. If one priest in Milwaukee, Wis., services seven churches and Father Pat Fixsen has to travel to Dalzell and Arlington, then Father Spilman can handle the three churches in Spring Valley, and those churches will not have to closed or sold eventually. I really feel mergers through “GROWING in Faith Together” is going to be a disaster. Will the mergers of the churches into one church, destroy the other churches
that have been in operation for many, many years? Carlo Olivero Dalzell
Who are you really? To the Editor, That’s kind of a personal and hard question isn’t it? I want to share with you a little about who I was. How intimate and personal should one get? We don’t even share with our significant other some things about ourself. Doesn’t the divorce rate and brokenness of relationships show that we are not a very honest people? We all have dark secrets. But Jesus said in Matthew 10:26 “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.” What I’m going to share with you isn’t to solicit pity. In the past I indulged in enough of my own self-pity with consequences that still linger today. My mother died when I was 1-1/2. My siblings and I were taken from my father when I was 4 and put into a children’s home. At the age of 11 my brother and I were separated from my sisters. I was sexually molested at a young age. (12? I didn’t think to write down the date!) I was very confused and angry in my youth. I started drinking at the age of 17. I became addicted to pornography at a young age. I was arrested seven times for being drunk and disorderly, once for drunk driving. Once I had my stomach pumped because of possible alcohol poisoning. My brother committed suicide when he was 26. I was diagnosed as being manic-depressed in my early 30s, later diagnosed as being bi-polar. Physically and mentally I’m still reaping some of the consequences of my past. I was diagnosed as having chronic fatigue four years ago and had to step out of the workplace three years ago. Many research their family tree. The Bible says that God “will punish the sins of the fathers down to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Him.” Do you blame God for the family you were born into? Or if you were born into a loving family, do you take it for granted? Ether way, take the time to read Ezekiel Chapter 18 to see “who you really are.” I don’t know if Nicodemus grew up in a loving family or a strict religious family, but Jesus said to him, “You must be born again.” Jesus doesn’t promise us a problem-free life as Christians. He himself was crucified and tradition says all his disciples were martyred for their faith. I described to you who I was before I received Christ as my Lord and Savior. Are you a good person? No, not really. Maybe according to this world’s standards but according to God’s standard “our righteous acts are like filthy rags.”Isaiah 64:6. In Ezekiel’s day, they offered up sacrifices because they understood its significance which ultimately pointed to and was fulfilled in Christ. But sadly to many, these sacrifices were a ritual with no personal application. Who are you really? Ted Roberts Princeton

Princeton Rotary presents Swan-Eickmeier scholarships PRINCETON — The Princeton Rotary Club has awarded Swan-Eickmeier scholarships to five Princeton High School students. The Rotary has been awarding the scholarships to Princeton High School seniors for 13 years. The scholarship is named for Roger Swan and Roger Eickmeier, long-time Rotarians and leaders in the community. The $1,000 non-renewable scholarship is paid directly to a graduating senior who intends to pursue a two-year or four-year college degree. The scholarship funds must be applied to the cost of tuition, room and
board, fees, or books/ media. Selection is based on academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, community service, letters of recommendation, and a 500-word essay expressing how Rotary service and ideals will play a role in their life. Over the 13 years, 48 scholarships have been awarded for a total of $48,000. Funds for the scholarships are raised via various club fundraising activities. The following Princeton High School seniors received Swan-Eickmeier Rotary Scholarships this year. Kathryn Krieger will be
attending Hope College in Holland, Mich. She intends to study vocal music education and performance, with emphasis on becoming a high school choir director. Kate Morrow will be attending Tufts University in Boston, Mass. Her goal is to major in international relations with plans to pursue graduate studies where she can focus on diplomacy. Someday she would like to work in the state department. Andrew Birkey will be attending Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn. He will be studying history. He wants to write and hopes to someday be a college professor.
Genevieve Prushinski will be attending Bradley University in Peoria. She will be pursuing studies in dietetics and psychology. She intends to become a registered dietician and continue to pursue further studies in dietetics. Emmalee Sears, after completing her four-year undergraduate program, plans to apply to a twoyear physician assistant program, hoping for an internship, in order to specialize in orthopedic surgery. The Swan-Eickmeier Scholarship is another way for members of Rotary to show their interest and support for our young people.

NFHS addresses batter interference
BCR photo/Mike Vaughn
Spring Valley beats Peru
INDIANAPOLIS — Changes to high school baseball rules will include an additional example of how a batter can interfere with the catcher’s ability to field or throw. This year’s rules changes were approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Baseball Rules Committee at its June 2-4 meeting in Indianapolis. The rule changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors. “The committee felt that the game is in a very good state,” said Elliot Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and educational services and staff liaison for baseball. The committee voted to add “including backswing interference” to Rule 7-3-5c to address that specific type of batter interference. The rule now reads, “A batter shall not interfere with the catcher’s fielding or throwing by making any other movement, including backswing interference, which hinders action at home plate or the catcher’s attempt to play on a runner. The committee also revised Rule 6-1-3 to state that the pitcher’s entire pivot foot must be in contact with or directly in front of and parallel to the pitcher’s plate. The committee also established several points of emphasis for the 2014 season, including malicious contact, coaching attire and umpire authority and enforcement. “These are topics that I get calls and e-mails about during the course of a season,” Hopkins said. “I share those with the committee and if they are seeing the same types of problems, then the red flag goes up.” Contact or a collision is considered to be malicious if: 1. The contact is the result of intentional excessive force; 2. The contact occurs close to the bag or home plate or above the waist of the receiving player; or 3. There was intent to injure. Malicious contact can occur without these conditions if determined by the umpire, but these provide a starting point. Even with cutbacks for uniform funds, coaches

‘42’ brings back fond baseball memories On a rainy evening my wife Jeanne and I attended the movie “42,” the Jackie Robinson story that is bringing a new generation of fans to know the African-American athlete who integrated Major League Baseball when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in the spring of 1947. The Brooklyn Dodgers’ General Manager Branch Rickey chose Jackie Robinson over other Major Leagueready players and future teammates such as Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe because he wasn’t as nice or soft and would be better equipped to deal with the hate and the intolerance. When Jackie got the offer to sign with the Dodgers, he was more excited about his pay increase than the historical implications. It was no accident that Jackie would play in Brooklyn because of the multicultural and ethnic diversity there. Jackie could not live or eat with the team because of racial tensions. He lived in Brooklyn with the Nazarene Congregational Church with the assistant Rev. Lacy Covington and his family. When Robinson took the field in 1947, he was a real pioneer because that was a time when Black Americans had fought and died for their
Darrell Alleman COMMENTARY country in World War II, but they returned home to a country with separate drinking fountains, toilets and a ban on Negroes in the Major Leagues. In the movie there are scenes of racist fans heckling Robinson and many of his own teammates signing a petition demanding Robinson not be allowed to join the Dodgers. Branch Rickey had hired the fiery manager Leo Durocher to manage the team who he thought was the right manager at this time. But Leo was suspended for the entire season for having an affair with a married actress. So Rickey turned to Burt Shoton to manage the team. Burt had retired two years earlier from managing the Cleveland Indians, and promised his wife he would never put a uniform on again. But Rickey told him he did not have to wear a uniform and he could manage like Connie Mack did for the Philadelphia A’s team, so he took on the job.
Jackie was a very exciting player to watch. He could steal any base. He would take big leads, while dancing up and down daring the pitcher to try to pick him off. When he needed to steal home, he would slide, taking the catcher out. The pitcher would throw at his head, knocking him down just about every at bat, while umpires would call him out when he was safe on close plays. Robinson’s son, Jack, who served in the Vietnam War was a heroin addict. Jackie made impassioned speeches about the dangers of drugs at churches after his son died. Jackie died in 1972, just a year after his son died in a car accident. Jackie and his son are buried in Cypress Hills Cemetery. The inscription on Robinson’s tombstone is: “a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” There is a statue of Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson with Pee Wee’s arm around Jackie that stands outside of MCU Park in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn. At the first game Brooklyn played at in Cincinnati in 1947, the Cincinnati dugout and crowd booed, cursed and hollered at Jackie when his name was announced and he came out of the dugout. After
a few moments of this, Pee Wee went over to Jackie and put his arm around him. I saw Jackie play at Wrigley Field only three times. At one game, Russ Meyers, a Cubs pitcher from Peru, threw a wild pitch that got away from the Cubs catcher and when Meyers tried to catch the ball back from the catcher, Jackie took him out and was safe. When Meyers got up, he lashed out at Robinson. I always liked to hear Jackie interviewed over the radio, he had such a pleasing voice. I subscribed to the Sporting News Weekly newspaper in 1945 and still have them through and into the 1950s. When the movie ended, I stood up and announced to my wife Jeanne that this was the best movie I had ever seen. I love baseball so much and to see the old baseball uniforms with their stockings showing, the 1940s and ‘50s beautiful cars and the men and women fans in the stands all wearing hats. This era of baseball and the times was the best to be alive. I am thankful to have lived through these times. Darrell Alleman of Granville can be reached at Putnam County Record, P.O.

Rules From Page 11 should still be dressed in a similar fashion to the players as a means of helping umpires recognize members of the coaching staff. The final point of emphasis deals with umpires’ authority. The committee noted that coaches must set the example of appropriate behavior so the team and its fans can follow. Disputing the umpire’s calls, failing to comply with an umpire’s command, exaggerating the time for offensive conferences, gamesmanship and challenging the umpire’s authority cannot be tolerated, the committee stated. “We want coaches to be role models for civility,” Hopkins said. “The umpire has to make a final decision and the coach has to handle it with class and character.” Baseball is the fourthmost popular sport for boys at the high school level, according to the 2011-12 NFHS Athletics Participation Survey, with 474,219 participants nationwide. The sport ranks third in school sponsorship with 15,838 schools offering the sport.
