General Assembly overrides Quinn Concealed carry passes the House, Senate By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

Editor’s note: This is the first story in a two-part series on concealed carry. PRINCETON – On Tuesday, Illinois became the last state in the nation to allow a gun owner to carry concealed weapons, after the Illinois General Assembly voted to override Gov. Pat Quinn’s amendatory veto of House Bill 183. The Senate vote was 41 yeas to 17

nays with local Senators Darin LaHood and Sue Rezin voting in favor of the override. The House vote was 77 yeas to 31 nays, with local Representatives David Leitch, Frank Mautino and Don Moffitt all voting in favor of the override. In a statement on the concealed carry override, Quinn expressed his disappointment. “Yet, despite my objections, members of the General Assembly surrendered to the National Rifle Association in the waning days of session and passed a

flawed bill that allows people to carry guns in establishments that serves alcohol and allows people to carry unlimited guns and high-capacity ammunition magazine,” he said. After Quinn took amendatory veto on the bill last week, he released revisions to what he called a “flawed bill that jeopardized public safety. “We will keep fighting for these critical provisions that will save lives and establish a better, more responsible concealed carry law in Illinois,” he said on

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board is moving forward with a plan to upgrade the grounding grid system for the communication tower at the county jail, with the hopes to eliminate any future lightning strikes. At Tuesday’s board meeting, Buildings and Grounds Committee Chairman Kristi Warren updated the county board on the recent field study completed at the jail tower by E & S Grounding Solutions of California. The study was “very thorough and eye-opening,” Warren said. The study has included testing of the grounding grid at the tower and writing an interpretation of the test results, with the final component to be the development of a work plan to correct the issues at the tower, Warren said. The E & S Grounding consultant has presented two plans for the board to consider, a short-term emergency plan and a long-term plan. The consultant’s recommendation was to go with the short-term plan, Warren said. The long-term plan would be much more involved and expensive. To put so much money into grounding and securing the jail tower, the county board would want to make sure the jail and communication equipment stay at its present site, the consultant said. Warren agreed, saying taking the unknown future in consideration, the shortterm plan seems to be the better choice.

MANLIUS –  At a public hearing on Monday, some Bureau Valley teachers spoke out against the school board’s possible decision to seek a waiver that would allow variations in how physical education is currently taught in the elementary schools. Physical education is required to be taught 20 minutes a day, five days a week. With an approved waiver by the state, classes could be reduced to 20 minutes a day, three days a week. At the hearing, Superintendent Dennis Thompson gave examples of how the waiver could potentially allow a change in the instruction model for physical education by having physical education teachers incorporate core curriculum concepts into the class. Also, it could allow for a reduction in staff members since the instruction would be cut down by three-fifths. Also, with the waiver, the district would be able to hire an elementary teacher that could teach physical education and also be qualified to assist teachers in other instruction on the two days that physical education wouldn’t be required.

Trouble on the Hennepin

Yourek: ‘One of Bureau County’s historic treasures is crumbling’

Tom Yourek of Wyanet stands by Lock 19, a section of the Hennepin Canal which he says is needing help to stay alive. Yourek is hoping others will join him in raising awareness to get help for the canal. A petition in support of the canal upgrade has been posted by Meagan Johnson of Wyanet on the Facebook page for Yourek’s Canal Area Tackle Shop business.

WYANET —A Wyanet business owner is spearheading a grassroots efforts to get state recognition and help to address problems with Hennepin Canal Lock 19, located on the southwest edge of town. Tom Yourek has sent letters to area representatives expressing his concern about the deteriorating condition of Lock 19. He has posted that letter and pictures of the Lock 19 area on the Facebook page for his business, Canal Area Tackle Shop. Meagan Johnson, also of Wyanet, is helping Yourek raise awareness and support for his campaign by posting a petition on Yourek’s business Facebook page. As of press time, 25 people

have signed the petition, which will be sent to the Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, Illinois Senate and Illinois House. On Tuesday, Yourek said he has sent his letter to not only state representatives, but also posted the letter at local businesses in town and given copies to several area residents. He has sent a copy of the letter to Gary Wagle, president of the Friends of the Hennepin Canal organization. In his letter, Yourek described the Hennepin Canal, specifically Lock 19, as falling apart

and needing help to stay alive. Lock 19 no longer has water going over the spillway, except after heavy rains. There is a breech underneath, and all the water flow is going through that breech. There are also issues at some of the other locks to the east of Lock 19, including water spouting out of a dam, leaks in the locks that are affecting water levels and areas of the eastern branch where water levels are less than two feet, Yourek said. The condition at the lock is also a health con-

cern, Yourek said. As the summer heat continues, the debris accumulating at the lock will cause a stench. The water has also stopped flowing into the diversion tunnel next to the lock, which he believes will become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. In drawing attention to the problem, Yourek said he’s hopeful state representatives from the area who are in town for this weekend’s Wyanet Festival will take time to look at Lock 19 and see its condition for themselves, including the scum that

has accumulated near the spillway. “I know the state is deeply in debt, but one of Bureau County’s historic treasures is crumbling,” Yourek stated in his letter. “I believe it would be time well spent if any governmental officials coming to Wyanet to walk in the (Wyanet Festival) parade would also take some time to visit the canal from Lock 21 east to Lock 14. This area of the canal is in dire need of help.” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews. com.

Tiskilwa approves budget, appropriation ordinance Storm sirens on the village’s mind By Lyle Ganther lganther@bcrnews.com

TISKILWA — The Tiskilwa Village Board on Tuesday approved the annual budget and appropriation ordinance for the upcoming fiscal year. The $1,049,000 spending document is down slightly from the previous year due to several factors discussed by Mayor Randy Philhower with the village board members at their meeting in June. Philhower said the village streets will be spray patched instead of seal coated, saving about $60,000 in motor fuel taxes. Board member Gene Gustafson said he is still waiting for Ace in the Hole of Washburn to show up and spray patch the village streets. Gustafson said company personnel told him workers would be in Tiskilwa the first or second week of July, but no such work has been done on the village’s street as of Tuesday night’s meeting. Village board members had voted in June to spend up to $7,500 to pay for this work. In other business, board members voted to name Arthur Walters as Citizen of the Year. Walters, a 30-year member of the ambulance service, will be honored at the Pow Wow Days parade in August and at the Homestead Festival parade in Princeton in September. Village engineer Jack Kusek told board members he is still waiting on Ameren personnel to come to Tiskilwa to hook up electric lines for the village’s water tank level project. The rest of the equipment for the project is finished, waiting on electric lines to power it. Kusek also said all the village’s bridges and dams will be inspected

Wednesday and asked what is being done to kill the duck weeds in the village’s sewer plant pond in order to remove the filter and get it fixed. Village board member Dave Wright said he will work with village employees to see what kind of sprayer they need to get the job done or if they need to get a boat to properly spray and kill the duck weeds to get the project done this year, since the other pond was done earlier this summer. Village board members decided to pay 20 cents a gallon down payment for the amount of 600 gallons of propane, which is what the village normally uses in a year, to lock in a rate of $1.44 per gallon for next year with Ag View FS. A liquor license for the Tiskilwa Community Association’s beer garden during Pow Wow Days was approved along with seeking bids to remove two trees around town, one dead pine tree in East Park and another split tree in a driveway. Philhower said he has been asked about getting storm sirens erected in town. He estimated it would cost about $25,000 to $28,000 to put up two sirens. Philhower said storm sirens have been discussed in the past and an issue that needs to be dealt with if they were put up would be deciding who and how the sirens would be set off in case of a storm. Philhower said if he, as fire chief, would be called out of town to see if a storm is coming to town, someone else would have to be in town to set off the sirens. He asked about the liability of having storm sirens if a storm comes through the village and they aren’t set off to warn residents because of the responsible person(s) not being around all times of the day.

Finding one’s way By Brock Cooper news@bcrnews.com

SPRING VALLEY — A Spring Valley business owner wants the city to direct more people to the downtown and other businesses by buying signage using tax increment financing (TIF) district money. The “way-finding” signs would be used to direct people to thrift shops, antique stores, etc. — much in the same way as those in the village of Utica. “I want to encourage the council to use that money,” pawn shop owner Chris Drewel said.

Economic Director Debb Ladgenski said she had provided the council with a proposal in the past about the signage. No other action was taken. In other business: • Mayor Walt Marini said he has recently talked with Nora Fesco-Ballerine from North Center Illinois Council of Governments about possible grants for the bridge lighting project. Marini said there is a possibility for a 50/50 or even 80/20 grant. • Congressman Adam Kinzinger toured the city’s wastewater treatment plant recently, and while

he wasn’t able to come up with any money directly, he said he would do whatever he can to hasten the Federal Emergency Management Agency process. City engineer Larry Good said he had a meeting with FEMA representatives early that day. “Hopefully, we’ll be getting some feedback from them very soon,” Good said.

Concealed carry From Page 1 Tuesday. LaHood released a statement shortly following the General Assembly’s decision. “Quinn’s veto was obviously illadvised and he should have known that the General Assembly would override his actions. This is long overdue,” he said. “The legislative session would not have been necessary had Quinn just accepted the will of the people instead of making his grand political announcement last week.”

What does this mean now? In order to take part in the new concealed carry law, a person must be of 21 years old, have a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification Card and be issued a license by the Illinois State Police. The police department has been given six months to make applications for concealed carry licenses and must issue a license within three months of receiving a valid application. To be granted a license, a person must complete firearms training.

Projects From Page 1 “It’s probably not likely that they (jail and communication equipment) will change, but we don’t know that,” Warren said. “A new board may do something different with the jail. The company is satisfied that the short-term immediate plan will be sufficient for us,” she said. In a related issue, Warren said the Buildings and Grounds Committee was also concerned with the tower outside the county courthouse and wondered if the county should do a grounding study on that

Bureau County Republican • bcrnews.com Stipulations on the ability to carry a concealed weapon are: A person cannot have a background of being convicted of a misdemeanor involving a threat or violence within five years of applying for a license; have a record of two or more DUIs or drug violations; cannot be a subject of a pending arrest warrant; and cannot have a record of court-ordered treatment for alcoholism, alcohol detoxification or drug treatment within the five years of applying for the license. An applicant must also pay $150 for a new license or a renewal of a license. According to Section 65 of the bill, some areas will automatically be prohibited of a concealed carry. A licensee cannot carry on several properties including school property grounds or child care facilities; government grounds; before a circuit court, appellate court, Supreme Court or building under control of the Supreme Court; in jails and prisons; hospitals and mental health facilities; on public buses and trains; at a public playground; in public libraries; amusement parks; or property grounds owned by a college or university.

tower as well. Since the courthouse tower has not been hit by lightning, the E & S Grounding consultant was not overly concerned about that tower, but the consultant did not know how the tower was grounded. Warren said the question before the board was whether grounding work on both towers should be done at the same time. After discussion, the board agreed to go forward with the shortterm work plan for the tower at the county jail and to look into getting a grounding study done for the courthouse tower.

In other courthouse concerns, Warren reported on the recent evaluation done on the courthouse roof which showed “several significant areas” which needed to be addressed. The roof was replaced in 1996 and had a 10-year warranty, she said. After discussion, the board passed a motion to declare an emergency situation with the courthouse roof and to seek the needed roof repairs. The board authorized Key Builders to coordinate the work project with Oldeen Roofing of Ottawa. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews. com.

BV From Page 1 Thompson said he wasn’t recommending the board to decide any of the options the waiver would allow, but reminded the public the waiver would just be an option the board could consider if down the road in a year, they begin looking at areas to make cuts or changes that could make a difference in the budget. “I’m not going to be here in a year ... If the board has to do something at the end of July next year, and they decide this is one thing they could do which has the least impact — I know it’s bad, but the least impact of other dramatic things they have to do or could do — then they won’t have this option if they don’t apply for the waiver now,” he said. “This just gives them flexibility if they have to do something.” If the board approves the waiver this year, it won’t be applicable until January.

grade teacher at Bureau Valley, was the first to speak out against the waiver. “In today’s health conscious society, I’m not sure why the district would propose something that would take time away from the physical education program taught by a certified physical education teacher,” she said. “Research shows that physical education improves academic performance; vigorous movement increases blood flow to the brain, which can lead to better concentration and focus.” Ann Lusher, Bureau Valley music teacher and president of the Bureau Valley Teachers’ Association, said the board’s decisions need to focus on what’s best for students’ education. “Physical education is a fine art ... just like art, drama, music. They are key to the development of the brain for students,” she said. “We’ve already cut art and music back to three days a week in our district, and now we are talking about cut-

ting physical education taught by a specialist to three days a week from five days. We are really impacting the students in a negative way as far as I see it.” Lusher argued that if the board moves forward in requesting the waiver that they never consider using it. “Once it’s easy to cut something, it’s very difficult to bring it back, use it and reinstate it,” she said. Board member Don King said the last thing the board wants to do is cut things like physical education. “Do I personally want to cut K-5 physical education? Absolutely not, but I want to have that option in case Bureau Valley School District has that many problems. If we have to cut that, it’s because there’s a heck of a lot more problems than the K-5 physical education teacher. I hope we never have to do it, but having the option is important to have if we have to do it.” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews. com.

PRINCETON — A Spring Valley woman has been sentenced to 18 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to the Class 4 felony of identity theft. Angela L. Steinz, 43, entered her guilty plea on July 5 before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. In addition to the prison sentence, Steinz was ordered to pay fines, fees and court costs totaling $592 and to pay $310 in restitution. Steinz was represented in court by Public Defender Michael Henneberry. Prosecuting the case was First Assistant State’s Attorney Anthony Sciuto. In January 2013, a Spring Valley woman reported to the Spring Valley Police Department that credit cards had been taken out in her name without her knowledge or authority. Based on an investigation by the Spring Valley Police Department, Steinz was charged with identify theft on May 7. Steinz was previously convicted of felony theft in 2003 and in 2005 and was placed on probation for those convictions.

Lesson learned I recently made a huge blooper. One that caused a gigantic, wet mess and me having to borrow my sister’s Volkswagen Beetle to drive to work – I hate the slug bug. I discovered this mistake a couple Mondays ago when I was running late for work, per usual. I rushed out the door, attempted to shield myself from the downpour rain as I ran across the yard, unlocked my COMMENTARY vehicle, opened the door, was about to plant myself into the driver’s seat, when I noticed puddles of water everywhere. There were little pools of water in the two front seats, the cup holders were filled to the brim, the steering wheel looked as if someone had sprayed it with a hose and loose papers were floating in water on top of my dashboard. The scene was overwhelming and painful to take in as my mind rushed to try to reason what had happened. My windows were closed; my car had not been left open; the windows were still intact. Then it hit me as my eyes gazed slowly to the top of my vehicle where my sun roof — which I consider the selling point of my Jeep — was wide open. Entirely open, like flapping in the wind open. My stomach dropped as I stared in shame. I rushed back into the house and grabbed the nearest towel by the door. I ran back outside, out of breath, and sopped up what I could on the driver’s seat and steering wheel and also attempted to dip the towel into the cup holders to mop up as much water the towel corners could handle. While I was wiping everything down, trying to stay as dry as possible, I noticed the water in the front seats had begun seeping onto the floor of the vehicle’s back area. Everything on the floor in my back seat area was, of course, soaked. Lets just say, it was an unpleasant ride to work. It was only a little bit after 8 a.m. on a Monday, and my mood was set for the rest of the week. I couldn’t believe I had decided to leave the sunroof open on the night a rainstorm swept into town. The whole incident was so maddening that I tried to point the blame at the sunroof. Deep down, today, after everything has been dried out and clean, I’m slowly coming to terms that it was my fault for leaving it open. I hate when life turns on you like that. To sum up a very dramatic story, I had to surrender my poor Jeep to the garage for a day and a half, where three fans worked their hardest to dry it out. Luckily, my little sister is friendly enough that she let me borrow her light blue miniature vehicle that includes National Rifle Association bumper stickers and hippie peace signs in the back windows. I’m sure more than one reader has left their window open once or twice in their lifetime. I can now say I feel for you, and if you ever want to share your story I’d be grateful — knowing I’m not the only forgetful person in town. I hope this story sticks with the people who haven’t yet experienced this terrible happening in life, and it reminds them to keep on remembering to check their windows and sunroofs before the next storm blows in to town.

The thrill of victory and ... I chant his name over and over in my head as if to send him luck. The serve goes over the net; then the return comes right back. A brief moment of joy hits me when the ball nearly looks as if it was “out.” My reaction mirrors that of the audience members, who shriek and then quickly shush each other. Nobody wants to ruin Andy Murray’s focus. The commentators remain silent knowing the last few minutes of the game may very well be happening in front of them. I cringe every time a monotone announcer calls out the score, letting his voice echo within the Wimbledon stage. Hearing that Novak Djokovic has the advantage yet again on this recent deuce makes my heart beat faster. I chant Murray’s name again and again. I try to fill the

Kathy Tun COMMENTARY silence with anything but doubt. Murray twists his racket back and forth with a flick of his wrist. He throws the tennis ball adamantly at the ground and lets it bounce back to him with each throw. Just as the rhythm becomes steady, he launches the ball into the air. Before anyone has a chance to hold their breath, Murray’s back arches; his arms go up; his racket makes contact; and the game is back underway. With each forehand quickly hitting the ball back and forth, I can’t tell what will happen until the ball

stops moving. Time doesn’t stand still. It just happens. In one swift move Djokovic isn’t able to get the ball over the net. Only after I hear the crowd cheer do I know for sure that Murray has won the game. Andy Murray has won Wimbledon! My voice does something that only excitement can really explain. I know he could have lost. He had a chance to lose just as much as Djokovic did when this day began. I just couldn’t let myself believe it unless it actually happened. Until the final call was made, I didn’t have any reason to stop believing that winning could be possible. Kathy Tun of Spring Valley is a sophomore at Illinois Wesleyan in Bloomington.

Giovanine, a DePue native, coached for 35 years, including stints at Bureau Township, Buda Western and LaSalle-Peru high schools and is known as the “Shot Doctor” around the basketball camp circles.

DePue kids learning basketball DEPUE — For the past five months, the Illinois Coalition for Community Services has worked with the recently formed Latino Committee of DePue whose mission is to provide social and recreational programming for the community, children, and youth. Their hard work and dedication has been proven with the creation of a basketball program: “Basketball School of DePue,” “Escuela de Basquetbol de DePue.” The school was created to teach children ages six to 12 the fundamental techniques of the sport and to provide a fun, safe environment for them to play. The program began on June 25 and will run until July 19. All of the children in the community were invited to participate. Thirty-five children registered for the program which meets on Tuesdays and Fridays from 6 to 7 p.m. at the DePue School basketball

courts. Coaches Oscar Lopez, Miguel Quintana and Fromencio Mejia are responsible for running the program and also spend significant time with the children, coaching them and teaching them the techniques. The basketball program has become more than just a program for the kids participating; it has brought family members together and the children enjoy having their mom or dad come see them play and be part of their enjoyment. This has become a great community program where participation has been important. The committee will continue organizing future sporting programs as well as other social events for the community. The committee is organized of dedicated Latino members who are committed to engage the entire community of DePue.

Players were removed from the field around 7:30 p.m. after several bullets hit the left-center field light tower and tore through the back window of a minivan parked near the complex. Coaches investigated the gunfire that appeared to come from a property about a half-mile south of the field, according to the police report.

their company. We’ll try again. We want to congratulate the program that is getting underway that is teaching 4-H members the proper way to use firearms. They already had one session last week and will continue on this weekend. Other disciplines will include air rifle, rim fire rifle and archery. They are working in conjunction with the local chapter of Pheasants Forever. This is a great program, and I wish them great success. Local fishermen have met with moderate success on the canal and local ponds. I can’t wait to get back and try my luck.

Next up Sprint Cup Race: Camping World RV Sales 301 Where: New Hampshire Motor Speedway When: Sunday, 1 p.m. (ET) TV: TNT 2012 Winner: Kasey Kahne

Jimmie Johnson dominates Coke Zero 400; team among ‘best ever’ in NASCAR history Whether Jimmie Johnson’s dominating win in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday is a sign he’s on track to win a sixth Sprint Cup title is debatable. What’s for sure is that he and his No. 48 team, with 64 career Cup victories to date, are showing the strength that has made them among the best ever in NASCAR. Johnson’s crew chief Chad Knaus said in the winner’s interview at Daytona that his driver’s talents are the key to the team’s success. “The cold, hard fact of the matter is we could have the best race car out there, but if we had some schmuck driving it, it wouldn’t get the job done,” he said. “I think we’ve got what is the best race-car driver ever to sit in a Cup car behind the wheel.” Johnson, who leads secondplace Clint Bowyer in the Cup standings by 49 points, put on a display of those talents at Daytona on Saturday, leading 94 of the 161 laps, including the final 31. In the past six races, he’s won just twice, but has led 565 laps. He was in position to win several more, but was undone in large part by issues on late-race restarts. Johnson said that a big part of his success over the years is not to let the frustrations of one week affect his performance the next. “Every race team in the garage area leaves the track with could-have, would-have, should-haves, and we’ve had a couple of those, but we don’t let it linger, we don’t let it last,” he said. “We dig in and we go to work and we come back to the race track and do

the best we can. “We know what we’re capable of when we go out and do our jobs.” In that same way of thinking, he’s also not saying his success so far — his dominating runs and four victories so far this season — is a sure sign that he’s on track to win a sixth title, which would put him just one behind the sport’s all-time title-holders, Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. That’s in large part because of the Chase format, which resets the standings after the 26-race regular season for the 10-race finale. “The Chase is so different,” Johnson said. “Those 10 races, we’ve entered the Chase with a ton of momentum. ... “When we get in the Chase, there are certain feelings that seem to come around, but right now it’s really about managing your team, managing your car, developing the car and things like that.” But he does feel good about where he and his team are right now. “As we get later in the summer and a week or two out, if we’re winning races then, the right feeling will start to come along,” he said. “It’s still a little early, and we’re obviously trying to get every point we can to carry into the Chase with bonus points. But we have a little time before we focus in on that feeling.” In the meantime, Johnson said his and his team’s performance does send a signal to his competitors that he expects to be the one to beat when it comes to the 2013 Cup championship.

“I think that what we’ve done over the course of the year, leading the points like we have with a big margin, I think probably sends the biggest message that we’re buttoned up and ready and in a position to win a sixth championship,” he said. “But there’s a lot that can take place between now and Homestead.” Copyright 2013/Distributed by Universal Uclick

The Original Maria’s Pizza 2 recently opened for business in Princeton at 918 N. Main St. in the former Nelson Drug Store. Owner Vince Mazzarisi (left) and his son, Anthony, who will be the manager, hold a pizza.

Original Maria’s Pizza 2 opens Former pharmacy remodeled into restaurant By Lyle Ganther lganther@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — Owner Vince Mazzarisi has been very happy with the public’s support of Maria’s Pizza 2 since it opened in Princeton on July 1 in the former Nelson’s Drug Store at 918 N. Main St.. “The first day we were full,” he said. “The place was packed, and everybody was very happy.” People were pleased with the pan pizza, stuffed pizza and chicken strips, he added. “We got lots of positive comments about what we did to the building,” he said, referring to the several months it took to transform the first floor of the former Nelson Drug Store building into a restaurant. “We make fresh spaghetti daily,” he said. “We serve authentic Italian foods such as pizza, pastas and sandwiches, hand-battered onion rings and chicken strips.” Mazzarisi has owned and operated Maria’s Pizza in Dixon for 24 years and was first exposed to Princeton when his

brother opened a pizza place in Princeton for several years before closing it seven years ago. “My brother always liked the town when he owned the place,” Mazzarisi said. “I hated to see my brother sell it. I always thought about coming back but couldn’t until the person my brother sold the business to wasn’t in town anymore. “We have nothing to do with Anna Maria,” he said. “We are not affiliated with her at all. “We are open from 3 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday,” he sad. “We will offer pickup, dine in or delivery within a 10-mile radius of Princeton.” The phone number is 815-872-2222. There is seating for 90 people. The restaurant is named after Mazzarisi’s sister, who was beloved by her four brothers growing up in Rockford, he said. Mazzarisi’s brother, Frank, runs a pizza restaurant in Freeport while his other brother, Joe, has one in Amboy. Comment on this story at www. bcrnews.com.

July 27th 11am-11pm

Author/educator Ron Bluemer goes back to the 1950s on Monday By Dixie Schroeder dschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

STANDARD – Author, educator and local resident Ron Bluemer is the next presenter in the Putnam County Library’s 75th anniversary series on Monday at the Putnam County Community Center. Beginning at 7 p.m., Bluemer will be presenting on the 1950s in the Illinois Valley. In his presentation, Bluemer will include topics such as the stories of the Illinois Valley veterans who fought in the Korean Conflict; civil defense preparation during the Cold War with the Russians; illegal gambling in Streator, LaSalle and Spring Valley; and reports of flying saucers over LaSalle and Ottawa. “This is cool,” Bluemer said. “It was the era of the flying saucers, and I got the military version of what was actually was happening, so I present all sides of the story.” Bluemer said his presentation is a variety of incidents and issues that happened in Putnam, LaSalle and Bureau counties in the ‘50s that go well together. One of the more colorful personalities in the ‘50s in Putnam County was Trader Jack. “I had John Redshaw come in. He was dying to get the story into a book,” he said. “He had all the original pictures ... The problem has been trying to find out who killed him. I think the only one that might of known is Durley Boyle, and he’s long gone.” Trader Jack owned the old Granville Bank building where he was eventually found, murdered on Sept. 27, 1955. His wife, Mary, found his body on the day he was killed. The case is still unsolved.

Other famous folks from the area include Clarence Mulford of Streator who was the author of the Hopalong Cassidy book series. Mulford wrote books in the series from 1907 to 1941. Hopalong Cassidy franchise was made into movies and books in the 1950s. The Cold War in the 1950s had a definite impact on the Illinois Valley. A secret military base in rural Streator which is now farmland off Route 17 is another topic Bluemer will discuss. Built as a training site for radar technicians, men went through a 10-week set of courses designed to teach them to help protect Chicago. “Every day the Air Force guys were stationed here. They would be transported by an Air Force bus from Streator to the base where they trained. All the guys worked on what was called the DEW line, which was short for the Distant Early Warning line where we had all our radar set-ups. All those guys from Canada and the United States had to train in Streator,” said Bluemer.

The Whiteside County Cattleman’s Association will be grilling hamburgers and hotdogs at barn #5. Seating will be available for you to enjoy your lunch. After lunch, you will visit barn #6 that will also have antique farm equipment. Stop #7 is a historical site - the Albany Indian Mounds. Originally made up of 96 burial mounds, the site is older than either the Cahokia or Dickson Mounds. The site has a parking lot and picnic shelter, walking trails, and interpretive signs. The tour concludes with four more barns. Along with the barns, you will see more antique farm equipment and livestock. Admission: $20 per vehicle - No Advance Sales (admission includes tour book and map) Tour starts at RKR & Associates, 9585 Henry Road, Morrison, IL Whiteside Co.
