Hall breaks even By Barb Kromphardt bkromphardt@bcrnews.com

SPRING VALLEY – “It was better than last year,” Hall Superintendent Mike Struna said. “It was a break even year.” At Wednesday’s school board meeting, Struna reviewed the budget of the year just past and gave board members a preview of the upcoming year. For the Fiscal Year 2013 just completed, Struna said the district received $117,180 from the state than it did the previous year. General state aid continued to decline, as did transportation reimbursement. Better news was seen in the increase in corporate personal property replacement taxes, which Struna said was a good sign the overall economy was improving. While state revenues were down, local revenues were up by $154,101 from the previous year, largely because the Walmart Distribution Center came on the tax rolls. The district ended the year with a $28,395 surplus. “We broke even, which is great news,” Struna said. Actually, the surplus was even bigger. The bottom line included $184,000 in expenses for the new school, which will be repaid to the operations and maintenance fund after the bond money for the new school is received. Looking ahead, Struna said state revenue should remain fairly level, and he projected a 1 percent increase in local revenue. On the expense side, Struna said salary increases for the certified staff would be about 1.4 percent. “We are very lucky the teachers settled for a 1.4

West Nile Virus confirmed By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — Diseased mosquitoes infected with the West Nile Virus have been found in both Bureau and Putnam counties. Kurt Kuchle, director of health protection for the Bureau/Putnam County Health Department, said the Bureau County sample was collected June 25 and tested July 2. The Putnam County

sample was collected and tested on July 9. The health department usually tests on Tuesdays, he said. To date, the local health department has collected 26 mosquito samples this season for testing with 21 of those tests in Bureau County and five in Putnam County, Kuchle said. Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director LaMar Hasbrouck also confirmed the first dead bird testing positive for West Nile Virus (WNV)

in Illinois for 2013, reported by the Monroe County Health Department. To date, 17 counties in Illinois have confirmed positive bird and/or mosquito WNV tests this year, he said. “We are now starting to see West Nile Virus in both mosquitoes and birds, which means it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing West Nile Virus in people,” Hasbrouck said. “Remem-

Concealed carry ... Where, when and why By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

Editor’s note: This is the second story in a two-part series on concealed carry legislation. PRINCETON – Earlier this week, Illinois became the last state in the nation to allow public possession of concealed guns after lawmakers raced to beat a federal court deadline in adopting a law over Gov. Pat Quinn’s objections. The wait continues, however, before any concealed weapons will be floating around in public places. The Illinois State Police has been given a six-month deadline to set up a system to start accept-

ing applications for carriers to get a license. Terri Kramer, owner of Kramer’s Guns & Supplies in Ladd, is relieved the state finally took action on legislation but said it was “pathetic” Illinois had to be the last state to allow concealed carry. “We need it more than anybody because we have Chicago,” she said. Kramer expressed frustration in how gang members can carry guns where they want, and law-abiding citizens weren’t allowed to carry to protect themselves from poten-

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board has made six appointments to the local Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB), though not every appointment was made by a unanimous vote. At Tuesday’s meeting, Board Chairman Dale Anderson recommended the appointments of Keith Ackerman, Gaile Arnold, Dawn Dove, Kevin Sangston, Adam Lind and Todd Buckman to the ETSB Board. Lind would replace Josef Vasquez, and Buckman would replace Jeff Bitting.

Changing the current Manlius makes changes to water ordinance

By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

MANLIUS – The Manlius Village Board approved changes to four water service fees stated in the village water ordinance. The recommendations for changes were discussed during a special meeting held by the board in June. At the special meeting, village board members Dawn Reglin and Darrell Anderson met with village clerk Lori Roush, village President Rob Hewitt and water billing clerk Susan Marie Elmendorf to discuss changes to fees they believed to be unfair or needed to be reworded to better accommodate residents and the village. The first change approved on Tuesday was to remove the $25 water service charge to residents who don’t use the service, whether they are living within the home or not. Hewitt confirmed residents would continue to be charged $14.50 per month for the debt service of the sewer loan. Hewitt reassured residents will have to give notice to Elmendorf if they wish to have the

water service turned off at a residence to avoid the $25 fee. A second change approved was to the current $5 water bill late charge, which before doubled each month the bill was unpaid. The fee will now be a flat rate of $10 per month for a late payment. The third change approved was to lower the fee to have a name changed on the water bill account from $50 to $25. Hewitt said the fee doesn’t affect households where one spouse leaves or dies and has to have the account switched to another name. The fourth change deals with the $100 water service fee the village currently charges new tenants to have their water turned on. The board members decided to add minor changes to the ordinance language. Those changes are for tenants who move into the village who will continue to be charged $100, and when they decide to terminate their water service and if their water bill is paid up, then the village will refund the tenant their $100. The village board dis-

County board From Page 1 Instead of voting for the appointments as a group, county board member Michael Kohr asked for the appointments to be done separately. Though he could not state his reasons in open session, he would not be voting for Dove to be appointed to the board, Kohr said. Anderson said he had talked with the ETSB chairman (Randy Philhower) who said Dove was qualified to be on the board and had done a capable job when serving previously on the board. She’s willing to serve on the board again, and he’s heard no complaints from ETSB Board members about Dove, Anderson said. Dove’s appointment was approved by a 14 to 9 vote,

cussed sending village residents a letter that included changes to the ordinance, so everyone can be updated on the new fees. Still having issues with water meters On Tuesday, the board also heard from village Superintendent Mike Rowland about the delay in installing new water meters in residents’ homes. Rowland confirmed he had only installed 50 of the 180 residential water meters. Rowland said he felt many residents were trying to get out of having their new meter installed because of rumors about the new meters adding up higher water bills. Hewitt said he had tried talking with several village residents to assure them the meters are working as they should and confirmed his own meter was calculating water usage appropriately. The village board plans to post a notice stating a deadline to have the new meters installed. Village residents are encouraged to contact Rowland to set up a time to have their meter installed.

Attorney says judge made an error in Rita Crundwell’s sentencing By Derek Barichello Shaw Media Service

DIXON – Rita Crundwell’s attorney is asking a federal court of appeals to reconsider her prison sentence. In documents filed Wednesday, attorney Paul Gaziano says the U.S. District Court in Rockford abused its discretion and did not give enough weight to Crundwell’s communication with authorities when she was sentenced. The former Dixon comptroller was sentenced Feb. 14 to 19 years, 7 months for wire fraud in connection to her theft of nearly $54 million. It is widely regarded as the largest municipal embezzlement in U.S. history. The sentencing was four years longer than recommended in guidelines used by federal courts to standardize sentences, and just six months short of the maximum sentence possible, Gaziano says. U.S. District Judge Philip Reinhard went beyond the advisory sentence, citing the amount of psychological and emotional damage done to the victims. Letters from Dixon citizens, in which they expressed a loss of confidence in their local government as a result of the theft, were used to reach this conclusion, the judge said. Gaziano argues that Dixon was the victim, and a municipality, by definition, cannot suffer psychological or emotional damage. “The residents of Dixon are not the victims of this crime. Admittedly, they do have an interest in the affairs of Dixon, but they are not

victims,” he wrote. The definition of a victim is any entity “who sustained any part of the actual loss; or an individual who sustained bodily injury as a result of the offense,” he said, adding that prosecutors did not provide any expert witness to establish that any person suffered psychological or emotional harm. “ ... It is true that the district court received a number of letters from Dixon residents, but those letters do not amount to a showing of the harm contemplated,” Gaziano wrote. He cited U.S. v. Neadle in support of his argument. In that case, which involved a $20 million fraud, the loss of confidence in an “important institute” was not considered as psychological or emotional damage. Gaziano also says Crundwell did not receive any credit for owning up to the crime. He also said she was not given credit for fully cooperating with authorities. An FBI agent noted Crundwell’s input assisted in the recovery of funds for the purpose of restitution, and even went above and beyond, but Reinhard passed over that principal argument, Gaziano said. “A judge who fails to mention a ground of recognized legal merit is likely to have committed an error or oversight,” he wrote. Prosecutors have until Aug. 9 to file a response, then Crundwell’s attorneys can reply to that, if they wish, by Aug. 23. Crundwell is serving her 19 years and seven month sentence in a federal prison in Waseka, Minn. Comment on this story at www. bcrnews.com.

Kuchle said common symptoms of WNV include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches. The onset of symptoms may begin three to 14 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Symptoms may last from a few days to a few weeks. However, four out of five people infected with WNV will not show any symptoms, Kuchle said. In rare cases, severe illness including meningitis or West Nile Encephalitis, or even death can occur. People older than 50 are at higher risk for severe illness, he said.

Expenses will go down $100,000 as the board did not refill the positions of a retiring teacher and cafeteria worker. The board also heard an update on the new school project. Struna discussed the recent Building Committee meeting, in which the committee members discussed the options for getting the necessary Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certificate. Points are awarded for having a sustainable site; water, energy and material conservation; and air and environmental quality. Struna said the state doesn’t want schools built that don’t conserve energy. Some options include LED lights in the parking lot or using the existing swimming pool to store rain water for watering the football field. Architect Healy, Bender & Associates will send the options to Leopardo Construction, the construction manager, to see which options are financially feasible. “It’s something we have to do, and obviously something we want to do,” Struna said. “Not only will we save money up front, but we’ll have a low maintenance building in the future.” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Right now, she is focused on what still needs to be accomplished before applications will be available. And even then, she has concerns on how long it will take for qualified registrants to receive their license. “If they handle it the same way as the FOID cards, we might not see any progress for a long time,” she said. Once people do begin receiving licenses and are able to carry a gun in public, it causes very little concern for Princeton Mayor Keith Cain. He foresees very little problems with the new law. “I think it’s a right everyone should have,” he said. “Every state has it, and we should be able to exercise out right, as well. I think it’s been a long time coming that we have this.” Curt Johnson of Wyanet is one resident who has followed the concealed carry law and has been issued a concealed carry license from the state of Utah. He agrees the passing of the law was a long overdue decision. “Most states have had it for years, and it’s worked really well for them,” he said. Johnson said there was talk about the state turning into the “Wild West” once the law was passed. The thought seems silly to Johnson knowing that every other state allows concealed carry and nothing has changed for them. Johnson believes the new law will actually decrease the crime rate. “Statewide, it will cause crime to go down because bad

guys won’t know who will be carrying and who isn’t,” he said. People who seek out a license will have several hoops to jump through before they are allowed to carry in public. A carrier will have to own a FOID card, pass a background check, undergo gun-safety training of 16 hours, which is the longest of any state and pay $150. Johnson said the steps to obtain a license are enough to allow someone to carry in public. He said he can’t imagine how the instruction in a 16-hour training course won’t get repetitive. In Utah, Johnson took a five-hour course and said it was plenty. Sheriff John Thompson believes the new law will have little affect on the crime rate in Bureau County and has no concerns about there being more guns in public places. He said if someone violates the law, the county plans to take strong actions against the violation. Thompson stated Quinn’s concerns with the law were associated with crimes in Chicago. Thompson said he can’t speak for Chicago, but he strongly believes by not agreeing to a concealed carry law, Quinn is only restricting the lawful citizens from protecting themselves of crime. “The violators are going to continue to do crime; all this law is going to do is provide protection for lawful citizens who choose to carry,” he said.

I am what I am Let me say right up front that I don’t know all the ins and outs of the recent Paula Deen scandal. I’ve read bits and pieces, watched snippets of the problem on TV and the Internet, and heard varying radio accounts of the Paula Deen issue. For someone who reads, watches and listens to a lot of news, the entire situation seems somewhat convoluted and confusing. From what I’ve gathered, Deen, who owns Deen’s Lady & Sons and Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House (along with her brother) — both in Savannah, Ga., is being accused of numerous acts of violence, discrimination and racism toward a former restaurant manager, Lisa T. Terri Jackson. Jackson is suing Deen and her Simon brother for sexual and racial harassment. I read a bit of the transcript from Deen’s deposition where she admitted to using the “N word” many, many years ago, testifying she uttered the racial slur “when a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head ... I didn’t feel real favorable towards him.” When her attorney asked her if she had ever used the “N word” since that time, she said, “I’m sure I have, but it’s been a very long time ... But that’s just not a word that we use as time has gone on. Things have changed since the ‘60s in the South. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior.” While there is always more to the proverbial story, those words have cost the famous Southern chef from Georgia several endorsements, her agent, a book deal, her TV show on the Food Network, and perhaps most importantly, her image and reputation. As the Deen saga has unfolded, I don’t mind admitting it’s been troubling to me. I’ve watched and admired Deen, who brought herself up in the world from a divorced mother of two who scrapped for every penny she got — to a successful entrepreneur, author and celebrity chef who has been admired and loved by many. Obviously I have no way of knowing if Deen is telling the truth in her deposition. None of us do, except those closest to her. On the other hand, we don’t have any way of knowing the former restaurant manager’s motivation for her lawsuit. I do think the media was overly zealous to convict before all the facts were out, and I also think they sensationalized the story. Please don’t write me letters or emails telling me I’m a bigot or a racist because of this column. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have several friends who are different races and from ethnic backgrounds whom I love dearly. I embrace our differences, find comfort in our similarities, and appreciate what they bring to our table of friendship. But as I think about the Paula Deen issue, there is no way I would ever pass judgment on her ... or anyone else for that matter. I’ve got my own back porch ... so to speak, just like everyone else does. I’m not a saint, as my dear friends know — never proclaimed to be, and quite frankly, if I had to testify in a court of law about things I did 30 or so years ago, I probably wouldn’t be too proud of some of my antics either. God knows we’ve all said and done things of which we aren’t proud. While I’m not happy about it, I’m not ashamed to admit it either. I’ve made mistakes — still do. Sometimes the filter in my mouth fails to work, and before I know it, something comes directly from my brain and passes through my lips without that valuable filtering system, which I’ve learned to cherish. No, I’m not talking about racial slurs, but still, I sometimes say things that some would deem less than appropriate. I don’t know what will come of Paula Deen. While everyone’s past can come back to haunt them, I prefer to live in the present and meet the demands of the world as I am right now — not who I was 30-some years ago.

This, that and the odder This has been the craziest summer we have had in a long time, which is why you haven’t heard from me for a couple months. We don’t usually vacation in the summer, but we get involved in one or two extra activities per a kid. If you take this times six kids, it makes for one busy household. The insanity started on June 3 with me going to Bureau Valley High School every morning from 7 to 9 a.m. for drivers’ education. This required me to wake up in the morning at 5 a.m., so I could be out the door by 6:30 a.m. On many days, I had to go straight from drivers’ ed to work at the cafe. I know this sounds like no big deal, but it made for very long days. This was my first experience with formal school. I am used to doing work for homeschool, but the homework and tests we got daily were new to me. I found it funny that when I had a question on my homework and asked another adult for their input, they usually got the questions wrong. Shortly after the class started and we took a test, we received our permits. I love driving, and even more, I love that my siblings never get to sit in the front seat anymore. My oldest brother Justus spent the month of June at Soldiers and Sailors Park practicing for his part in Festival 56’s “MacBeth.” He had to go nearly every day and has been having a blast. He has met many new people com-

Amelia Bystry COMMENTARY ing from all over the country. But he has yet to be asked for his autograph (hint hint). Opening night was June 30, and the show is fantastic. It has lots of sword fighting, action and awesome costumes. I know he would love it if you went to see him. The show is every Sunday and Wednesday evening at 8 p.m. throughout July. By the way, he is killed on stage, which is probably every 13-yearold boy’s dream.  My middle brother, Milo, 11, doesn’t really get talked about much in our family. This past month he achieved a big accomplishment by earning his purple belt in karate. For those of you that are wondering, this is the order of belts; White, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown and black. Milo has been in karate for three years. Every day he does push-ups, sit-ups and different routines he needs to learn. They are called Katas. These involve lots of complicated movements with his arms and legs. I don’t know how he remembers it all. Great job, Milo! The highlight of my little brother’s and sister’s (Simeon and Faustina) summer has been daily art camp with Kathy Ballard and

Jill Marti. It is held at the Prairie Arts Center, and they go for an hour each day to paint, draw, work with clay and have snacks. They did this last year and begged all year to go back. Those of you who know about my brother Simeon will love this story. He built a tank — I think it was a Panzer — out of clay, and it blew up in the kiln. He was a little sad, but we convinced him it was cool. (Milo also goes and loves it, but he already has a paragraph in my column to himself.) My baby sister, Patsy, isn’t enrolled in any extra activities but has been busy riding in the car while my mom drives us everywhere. She has also had fun catching lightning bugs, playing corn monster, swimming and eating popsicles until they drip all over her hands and feet. She loves to be outside and takes her job of letting out and putting away the kitties daily very seriously. She also loves collecting the eggs, and we finally got her to stop poking her finger into each egg to see how hard she could push on the shell before it cracks. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and are enjoying this beautiful weather.  Summer can be a busy time, but remember to stop and enjoy the little things that make it special.

South of the border Tiskilwa resident Hanna Ganther is working as an intern in Mexico during her summer break from college. Ganther will continue to update readers on her adventure south of the border. I have learned so much in the time that I have been here in Mexico at Grace Babies’ Home that I thought I could share some of what I have learned about the different struggles these kids have and why they have it. The children who come here to the babies’ home and the children’s home across the street all come from hard places. They all have gone through a lot; some have even experienced some things that most people can’t even begin to imagine how horrible it was for them. So most of the time these kids struggle with attachment and have sensory issues. Now what is attachment? I can admit I did not know a single thing about attachment and how important it was until I got here. There are four main categories when it comes to attachment. The first type is secure attachment; this is the healthiest type of attachment, and this is our goal with the kids. For secure attachments, the child uses the caregiver for their security and comfort. When their caregiver leaves, these are the kids who protest and cry out for their caregiver. They know their safety is found there. The caregiver knows their child, so they know how to respond appropriately and quickly to the needs of the child, therefore they have formed a secure bond with the child.   The next type of attachment pattern is avoidant. In this attachment style, the child shows no distress when their caregiver leaves, and when that caregiver returns, the

Hanna Ganther COMMENTARY child does not visibly respond to that return. The child does not feel an attachment to their caregiver; they would respond in the same way to their caregiver as they would respond to a stranger. This occurs when the caregiver does not respond to the child in distress. The third type of attachment is ambivalent/resistant. In this type, the child is not able to use the caregiver as their security. They are distressed when separated, but when the caregiver returns to play, they are resistant to that play. This is often because their caregiver gives inconsistent responses to the child, so the child doesn’t know how to respond.   The last type of attachment is disorganized; in this type, there is no attachment at all. There are disorientated behaviors at the return of the caregiver. This is often because of abuse or withdrawal from the child.   Also when the kids get here — because of the trauma that they have been through — they are behind developmentally. They just have not been in healthy situations that would allow them to develop the way other children have. This could be because of abuse, neglect, drugs and FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome). All of these things can cause kids to have issues with sensory things.   For example, one of the interns here, her family does a lot of fostering. They cut all the tags out of their clothes because it literally causes pain to the kids. It feels like needles on their skin. Even things

like textures of food can throw them off. So when children from hard places act up, it’s not because they are bad kids. Not even close. But because of all they have gone through, they react in the ways that they do. I am no expert on this matter, but I just wanted to share what I had learned about all of this. If you want to look into this more, I suggest you look at Dr. Karyn Purvis’ research. That is where I have learned all the things that I have about all of these different issues. The goal here at Grace Babies’ Home is to build secure attachments with the babies’ here, and it’s so cool to see that happening with Daniela, Maria and Jesus. When I first got here, Daniela and Maria wouldn’t have much to do with me. They wouldn’t let me feed them, put them down to bed, give them their bottles, and other things like that. But now that I have been here a while, they have started to trust me, and most of the time they let me do all those things. I think one of my favorite moments was last week; I was coming in the kitchen to get something while I was off shift, and Maria ran up to me and gave me a little hug. She was so excited to see me. My heart melted right then and there. So there you go ... these are just a few things that I have learned. I still have so much to learn about the subject of attachment. It’s just amazing how much I am learning this summer, and things I did not expect to learn either. I guess we’ll see how God is going to use this information in my life outside of how I am using it here. Hanna Ganther can be reached at hanna.ganther@cornerstone. edu.

Krabill and Cramer present program to BCRTA members PRINCETON — The May 16 luncheon meeting of the Bureau County Retired Teachers Association was held at the Princeton Public Library. The business meeting was conducted by Phyllis Fasking, BCRTA president. Elvin Krabill, DDS, presented a program on his many trips to Belize. Annually, he and other dentists travel to areas where people do not have access to dental services and provide them with much needed dental care. This group furnishes all their own medications, instruments, supplies and other incidentals. They perform all the procedures and functions that would be done in a dentist office in the United States. His many stories and pictures were very revealing and fascinating. Nancy Cramer, district manager for the Association Member Benefits Advisors, provided an overview of programs and services.

Most informative was her focus on the availability of the “Platinum Membership” emergency assistance service through Medical Air Service Association. MASA is the premier emergency assistance service anywhere. Its new membership benefits provide potentially life saving, emergency ambulance transportation via Jet, Helicopter, or Ground Ambulance to the nearest medical center that the patient needs any time, anywhere. This is

a valuable program that can result in a life-saving occurrence. Roger Tuttle, IRTA legislative committee member for Area 1, Region 7, gave an overview on the current pension reform issues and the pending legislative bills being debated in the Illinois General Assembly. He encouraged members to be alert and make use of IRTA VoterVOICE and stay informed. The Illinois General Assembly adjourned on May 31. The legislature is scheduled to return to the Capitol for the Veto

Session on Oct. 22-24 and Nov. 5-7. However, Gov. Pat Quinn moved swiftly on June 6, releasing a statement blasting lawmakers for inaction on Illinois’ nearly $100 billion pension problem and saying they all needed to return to Springfield June 19 “to finish their job.” Consequently, no action has been approved on pension reform. The next BCRTA meeting is scheduled for noon Sept. 19 at the Princeton Public Library. Jim Bachman, executive director, IRTA, will be the guest speaker.

Playhouse to be raffled to support Mendota seniors EARLVILLE - David Hubbard of No Place Like Home LLC in Earlville has built a custom playhouse that will be displayed in local parades and will be raffled off at the end of the summer with all proceeds going to Mendota Area Senior Services (MASS). The playhouse will be in this year’s Homestead Festival parade. “MASS is very fortunate to know a talented individual like David who sees the importance of seniors remaining independent and in their homes for as long as possible,” said Leticia Lemus, executive director of MASS. “With funding always being an issue for non-profits and with so many other groups fundraising simultaneously, MASS is always looking for new and creative ways to meet its yearly federal cash match. David’s wife,

opportunity. David has gone above and beyond with this project by donating his time and all the materials.”

Hubbard has been in the construction business locally for more than 30 years as Harold Hubbard and Sons Gen-

eral Contractor, and in 2010, a new division of his company, No Place Like Home, LLC, was formed to help individuals remain in their homes as they age. This is accomplished by making alterations to existing homes such as stair lift installations, ramps, bathroom remodels, etc. He finds this new aspect of his business particularly rewarding, as it helps individuals remain in the homes they love rather than turning to alternate housing options. For additional information about No Place Like Home LLC, visit www. HubbardAndSon.com. Playhouse raffle tickets can be purchased online at www.mendotaareaseniorservices.org. They are also available at Beetz Me in Princeton. Updated pictures of the playhouse can be found there as well.

On the road again ... It’s nearly time again for the annual Beef and Ag Tractor Ride! The dates for this year’s ride are July 19-21. Each day the ride will depart from and return to the Bureau County Fairgrounds in Princeton. The Friday ride will begin with a biscuits and gravy breakfast served at 7 a.m. with a freewill donation for the breakfast. A drivers’ meeting will be held prior to the 8:30 a.m. departure for Francis Park just outside of Kewanee. The drivers will travel country roads to reach Francis Park where lunch is provided to all participants. The return trip to Princeton will include some travel time on the Hennepin Canal Parkway before parading around Courthouse Square in

downtown Princeton and back to the fairgrounds. Saturday’s tour will find the drivers traveling to Putnam County with the first stop at the Marquis Energy Ethanol production plant. Lunch will be served in the park in Hennepin followed by a trip to the Putnam County Agricultural Museum and returning to Princeton via Tiskilwa. The Sunday ride takes a rural route to Ohio and a visit at the “Ol’ Fashun Threshin Days” hosted by the Bureau Valley Antique Association at Albrecht’s Grove. While there, the drivers will participate in their parade as well as the tractor pull and dynamometer testing for anyone so inclined to do so. The return trip to the Bureau County Fair-

grounds will bring the annual and ever-popular 2013 Beef and Ag Tractor Ride to a close. As has been the practice in the past, all proceeds from the ride are donated to the Bureau County Cattlemen’s Association for its scholarship fund and local food pantries. Registration for the ride is still available for either all three days or just one day. Anyone wishing to drive their tractor is invited to attend and may call any of the following for information: Doug Cook 815-8783789, Gary Peach 815303-7107, Terry Swearingen 815-878-7750, or Dave Doty 815-739-5983. Registration fee is $50 for all three days or $35 for either Friday or Saturday. Participation in the Sunday drive is free.

June hog report released SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Field Office of NASS released the USDA June 1 Hogs and Pigs Report June 28. The number of hogs and pigs on Illinois farms on June 1 was 4.75 million head, 1 percent more than last year and 2 percent more than the March 1, 2013 inventory. Breeding hogs was at 500,000 head, unchanged from last year, but up 2 percent from last quarter. Market hogs, at 4.25 million head, were up 1 percent from June 2012 and up 2 percent from March 2013. The Illinois March-May pig crop, at 2.627 million, was up 2 percent from a year ago. There were 255,000 sows that farrowed, unchanged from the previous year but up 2 percent from last quarter. The litter rate for the quarter was 10.3 pigs saved per litter, up from 10.1 the previous quarter. Farrowing intentions for the June through August quarter of 2013 are 255,000, 2 percent more than the actual farrowings during this period a year earlier. The first estimate of farrowing intentions for the September through November quarter of 2013 is 255,000 sows, up 4 percent from the previous year’s actual farrowings. United States inventory of all hogs and pigs on June 1 was 66.6 million head. This was down slightly from June 1, 2012, but up 2 percent from March 1, 2013. Breeding inventory,

at 5.88 million head, was up slightly from last year, and up 1 percent from the previous quarter.

Sows farrowed during this period totaled 2.92 million head, down 2 percent from 2012. The sows farrowed during this quarter represented 50 percent of the breeding herd. The average pigs saved per litter was a record high 10.31 for the March-May period, compared to 10.09 last year. Pigs saved per litter by size of operation ranged from 7.70 for operations with 1-99 hogs and pigs to 10.40 for operations with more than 5,000 hogs and pigs. United States hog producers intend to have 2.93 million sows farrow during the June-August 2013 quarter, down slightly from the actual farrowings during the same period in 2012, and down slightly from 2011. Intended farrowings for September-November 2013, at 2.92 million sows, are up 1 percent from 2012, but down slightly from 2011. The total number of hogs under contract owned by operations with more than 5,000 head, but raised by contractees, accounted for 46 percent of the total United States hog inventory, down from 47 percent last year.

Interning at the Bureau County Farm Bureau Hello! My name is Gracelynn Dale, and I am the 2013 Bureau County Farm Bureau summer intern. This summer I have had the privilege of job-shadowing Jill Frueh as well as being a part of many projects and events with the Bureau County Farm Bureau. As soon as I began my internship, I was traveling throughout the county with our Ag in the Classroom Coordinator, Sara Hildebrand, to put on different presentations talking about agriculture, including butterflies, crops and livestock. In May, Jill and I made the trip up to Portage Park Elementary School in Chicago to present to our fourth grade Adopt a Classroom. It was so much fun, since not only were we presenting the students with information, but we also got to work on activities with them, like making butter, growing our own little soybean plants and putting together “Horse Feed Sacks” filled with

Gracelynn Dale COMMENTARY food and candy to represent the nutrients horses need to survive. Since then, we have prepared for and put on our weeklong Summer Ag Institute for teachers as well as our Foundation Tractor Trek and Golf Outing fundraisers. As the summer continues, I will be helping get ready for the Bureau County Farm Bureau’s 100th year anniversary, which will be taking place next year. I have already began reading through past board meeting minutes to learn more about the history of our county’s Farm Bureau in hopes of adding to a history book that was previously put together in 1989 for the 75th anniversary celebration. This has been one of my most rewarding experiences as the summer intern, since I have been able to learn more about the activities

my Grandpa Alan Dale was involved in when he served as the Farm Bureau county president. Being a part of the Bureau County and Illinois Farm Bureaus has been such an important aspect in his life, and my internship is giving me the chance to better understand and appreciate all of his hard work. There is more to come this summer as we prepare for the next two months. At the end of July the Farm Bureau

will host the second annual 4-H Ag Olympics. It will take place at 3 p.m. July 25 at the 4-H Fair. Any 4-H member is welcome to participate; just contact the office to register by July 15. Also, we will again host the Farmer for a Day Activity at the Bureau County Fair. Be sure to stop in as we promote fun for all ages where you can try our version of milking a cow, collecting eggs from a chicken or digging potatoes. And of course

we will continue to plan for our 100-year celebration which we will kick off at the Bureau County Farm Bureau annual meeting in January 2014. Being the Bureau County Farm Bureau intern has been such a great experience, and I am eagerly looking forward to the rest of the summer. I have learned more than I ever could have hoped and met many great people along the way. I would like to

extend a huge thank you to Jill, Sara and the rest of the Bureau County Farm Bureau Board and members for making this opportunity possible. I know the knowledge, experiences and friendships I have gained this summer will stay with me not only as I continue my schooling, but for the rest of my life as well! Gracelynn Dale is a summer intern for the Bureau County Farm Bureau.

Princeton Public Library increases non-resident card fee PRINCETON — Every year the Illinois State Library (ISL) requires Princeton Public Library and all other public libraries to report if they offer cards to non-residential members, how much they charge and how they calculate the amount. Princeton Public Library’s response for 2013-2014 year is due Thursday. Most libraries, including Princeton Public Library, opt to offer non-resident card service to people living outside of the city limits. Whether someone is inside or outside of the city (that is “resident” or “nonresident”) depends on if that person pays taxes to the city of Princeton. The ISL maintains that non-resident patrons must apply for the card at their nearest library. Under state law, the fee amount for a non-resident card may be based on one of three options. The Princeton Public Library Board of Trustees has adopted the option it has determined to be most appropriate, called the General Mathematical Formula, which is arrived at

by dividing the library’s income via local property taxes by the city’s population and multiplying that per capita figure by the average number of persons per household to arrive at a family card fee. Under this option, the non-residential card fee will increase from $84 to $94, effective Thursday. This is because the loibrary is required to use “The most recent federal census information available.” There are important factors the library board wants to emphasize: • The card is issued annually. If a card is purchased before July 18, for $84, the increase will not become effective until the card is renewed in July 2014. • Princeton Public Library is restricted by the Illinois State Library from accepting or offering the non-residential fee lower than an equitable amount to that paid by city residents, “The board shall charge a non-resident fee for the privileges and use of the library at least equal to the cost paid by residents of the district, with the cost to be

determined according to the formula established by the Illinois State Library.” In other words, the library can not offer discounts on the non-resident fee. • The non-resident card provides the exact same services as the city resident cards, “A valid non-resident library card shall accord the non-resident cardholder all the services the issuing public library provides to its residents including reciprocal borrowing privileges.” • Likewise, Princeton Public Library honors library cards from other libraries, as mentioned above.

dent library card status. In the past there has been concern about denying resources to the public based on individual ability to afford the nonresidential fee. There are two things that are relevant to this issue. • The majority of resources at the Princeton Public Library, including use of public computers and databases, is available to the general public regardless of card status. The main difference between cardholders and the general public is the ability to borrow items, which is a service solely available to cardholders. Although children without a library card are not able to participate in the summer reading book rewards program, families are welcome to attend and participate in all summer reading events. • Through the generosity of their membership and organization, the Princeton Masonic Lodge 587 has agreed to contribute to the expense of an individual’s non-resident fee on a case-by-case basis.
