Enjoying the art Princeton Public Library’s Youth Services Co-Director Ron McCutchan poses with just a few of the estimated 80 pieces of artwork currently on display at the library as part of the library’s “Connecting Threads” art show, which runs until April 19. This year’s theme challenged area artists and artisans to create a statement through the use of textiles and dimensional art. Created by 30 area artists, the artwork ranges from needle arts, rug making, rug hooking, mixed media, furniture, blown glass, jewelry and wire art. Artists have also been presenting evening programs as part of “Connecting Threads.” At 6:30 p.m. April 15, local artist Janet Moreland will talk about what prompted her to combine quilts with her painting. At 6:30 p.m. April 17, there will be a presentation on the Barn Quilts public art movement by the Barn Quilts of Bureau County. BCR photo/Donna Barker

Tips on using your tax refund wisely Deciding what to do with a tax refund is an important decision, especially in today’s economy. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises consumers to consider a few options that can provide long-term financial benefits. “Many people receive a large sum of money from their tax returns,” says Steve J. Bernas, president/ CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “It is important to spend your tax return money wisely to have a financially stable year.” Here are some tips for tax refund recipients: • Pay down your debt. Use your refund toward debt relief such as paying off a credit card. You can also apply the refund toward other debts, like a car loan or a home equity loan. • Consider savings options. It may be beneficial to put the money into a savings account, CD or retirement fund and allow it to grow. It’s always helpful to have a savings account to draw from if a major car repair bill, medical emergency or other unexpected expense comes along. That way, you won’t have to borrow money and add to your debt-load. • Consider investing in your home. Using the money

to spruce up your house may add to its property value. For home improvement estimates and other services, consumers can use the free “Request A Quote” from BBB Accredited Businesses at • If debt is a problem, consider a credit counselor. Certified consumer credit counseling agencies can assist people who are facing financial challenges and are looking for debt relief. The BBB has free Business Reviews on credit and debt counseling firms in Northern Illinois at Bernas noted that if debt is a problem, consider a credit counselor. Certified consumer credit counseling agencies can assist people who are facing financial challenges and are looking for debt relief. The BBB has free Business Reviews on Credit and Debt Counseling firms in Northern Illinois at “Consumers need to keep their financial goals in mind,” Bernas stated. “Consider using your tax refund toward these. Put a set of long-term and short-term goals together. You’ll be more conscientious about how you spend your refund and how to use any other extra money that comes your way,” he explained.

Five things your parents didn’t mean to teach you Parents do the best they can to raise children with the tools they have. Many parents would be shocked to know their children were little sponges, soaking up every word and action and interpreting it in their own way. Although many thoughts, fears, reactions and actions get imprinted upon children at an early age, it is never too late to recognize where these things come from and to decide whether or not you wish to continue to hold onto them. Here are five things, out of potentially many more, your parents inadvertently taught you!

1. How to swear Fathers are especially good at “teaching” this one. Ever been around your dad in his workshop when he hit his thumb with a hammer? Or how about when he came home from work and tripped over the cat? What about your mom’s reaction when the dog pooped on the floor? Or what your mother said when your father threw the baby up in the air and played catch? There are many every day situations that can cause a parent to inadvertently let loose a blue streak! How do you react to surprise, pain, fear or fatigue? What swear words are your children learning?

2. The white lie Ever overhear one of your parents calling in sick to work? “Cough, cough, cough, I seem to have caught a bug from one of the kids. Can’t make it in today.” You look around the house to see which one of your siblings is sick. Then you wonder if it could be you who is sick! But when your parent comes into the room, he/she is perfectly healthy sounding. How confusing is that?

In later years, you make a note to tell your therapist about it! What are some other white lies you overheard, and how does that affect your behavior today? Are you a master at the “mental health day” phone call to work?

3. Fear of spiders, mice, lightning, and other events Parents tend to have different parenting styles here. Your father may have run around the house after a mouse with a shotgun declaring, “I’ve got it!” and your mother may have picked the mouse up by its tail and thrown it out. However, do you remember the reaction to a spider in the bathtub? How was the offending critter taken care of? Was it squashed into a piece of toilet paper and flushed down the toilet, or trapped in a cup and let go free outside? Now look at your reaction to these critters and events. Where did it come from? Is it a carbon copy of one of your parent’s reactions or is it the exact opposite?

4. How to mess up a house Are you a piles person, compulsively orderly, or somewhere in between? Chances are that you are a reaction to, or an embodiment of, the way your parents lived. We all know the basics of cleaning a house, but our houses reflect not as much our ability to clean the house but our ability to mess it up! The best way to analyze your style is to look at how your parents live once the children have flown the nest.

5. How to procrastinate It’s 9 p.m. on a school night, and your mother is putting you to bed. You mention that you haven’t finished your big craft project for the

Science Fair, and it’s due tomorrow. Your mother lectures you on leaving something so late and then runs around the house gathering materials for your science project. The two of you sit for the next two hours at the kitchen table modeling a papier-mâché volcano, complete with a baking soda eruption. You proudly carry it to school the next day and get an A on your science project. When do parents enable self-learning and stick-to-it behavior, or when do they, from fatigue, and their own need to have some quiet time and get to bed at a decent hour, inadvertently encourage procrastination? Any attention can be good attention, even if children are being scolded by their parents. There are many ways parents, and you, yourself, as a parent, model less than desirable behavior. When you internalize this behavior, you can model it yourself or model the exact opposite behavior — or even model a behavior that stems from your own unique interpretation of that behavior. Ever wonder how two siblings who grew up in the same household can have two entirely different interpretations of what went on in that household? Everyone sees the world differently, and everyone chooses how to react to that world. Even years after the original incident that formed our behavior has taken place, you can still chose to react differently. What behaviors do you have that you can trace back to your parents? How did you chose those behaviors, and do you still chose to keep them? Source: Beth H. Macy, M.Ed. Psychology, LMHC, is the author of “Many Years Many Worlds.” For more information visit

‘Locally Brewed’

Briefs ‘Convoy Against Cancer’ big truck show LADD — The 2014 “Convoy Against Cancer” Big Truck Show will return to Route 89/Main Street in Ladd on May 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. By definition, a convoy is a group of vehicles traveling together for mutual support and protection — to make sure that everyone makes it through. “This convoy is about support for each other in a special way,” said Phil Hocking, event organizer, “with a cure for cancer at the end of the route.” The show is intended to offer vehicle owners and enthusiasts something different while benefiting a good cause — the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. With the help of the village of Ladd and mayor Mike Grivetti, Route 89 will be re-routed so that the vehicles will be displayed on Main Street in Ladd. There will be plenty of room to line the street with all makes and models of new and restored, big trucks. Truck cranes, fire trucks, wreckers, pick-ups and redi-mix trucks from Peoria, Bloomington, Dixon, Princeton, Peru and all over the North Central Illinois area will be part of the show. A new addition to the line-up will be farm tractors — new and antique. All are welcome. Hocking said, “Last year one of our farmers brought a collection of antique Farmall International tractors, and the people really enjoyed them. We’ll be looking for some John Deere and Massey Ferguson’s to round out the display. There will be all makes and models of antique and new big trucks as well as pickup trucks, too.” All entrants will receive a dash plaque donated by Graphic Electronics of Spring Valley. The truck registration fee is a donation to the American Cancer Society. Local businesses have donated door prizes and silent auction items ranging from toys to trucking essentials. In addition to lots of chrome and stacks, there will be entertainment for the whole family with music by DJ Gary Swanson, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing, Relay For Life Team bake sale and event T-shirts will be for sale. Food will be provided by Torri’s and Softails. Admission to the show is free to the public. For entry and general information, call 815-4888245 or 815-894-2092 or email All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

Annual Illinois emerging writers competition SPRINGFIELD — Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White announced entry forms are available for the 10th annual Illinois Emerging Writers Competition Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award. “We created the Illinois Emerging Writers Competition to promote creative writing and provide a new outlet for talented writers,” White said. “Great poems have the ability to enrich and enhance our lives, and I am looking forward to discovering talented new poets with this year’s competition.” The competition is named in honor of the late Pulitzer Prize-winning Illinois Poet Laureate Gwendolyn Brooks, and is co-sponsored by the Illinois Center for the Book and Kevin Stein, who succeeded Brooks as Illinois Poet Laureate. The competition is open to Illinois residents age 18 and over. Entries must be postmarked by June 30. Cash prizes will be awarded for first ($500) second ($300) and third place ($100) and winning poems will

L’chaim! Salud. Grab a bottle and toast — Prost! Or Skal, chin chin, or Kambai. It’s all the same when raise your glass. Cheers! Slainte! Here’s mud in your eye! You toast to life, to family, your favorite team, the people around Terri you, and to good times Schlichenmeyer and good friends. But what will you toast with? Read “Locally Brewed” by Anna Blessing and get some new ideas. So you want to kick back this weekend with something different, and the choices seem endless. There’s a reason for that, says Anna Blessing: in the year it took her to research and write her book, “a new brewery was opening somewhere in the country every day.” She estimates that there are around 3,000 craft breweries in the United State — and while it’s true that nobody has settled on a real definition of “craft brewery,” there are just as many stories as there are meanings to the phrase. The second-oldest family-owned brewery

be submitted for possible publication in the Ninth Letter, RHINO, and Quiddity magazines and Poetic License Press publications. Winners will read their poems and receive their prizes at a ceremony later this year at the Illinois State Library in Springfield.

in America is in Minnesota, in a beautiful valley where peacocks roam the hops fields. You’ll also learn in this book about a Minnesota brewery that has a law named after it. Read about a Michigan brewery that was established because its founder had a scare with “the feds.” You’ll learn about a brewery co-started by an elementary school teacher; one that’s “willing to try … sometimes crazy, flavor combinations”; and one that stayed in business, thanks to a $250,000 mug. In Wisconsin, the nation’s first USDAcertified organic beer is brewed by the same folks who crafted the “first fruit beer since Prohibition.” You’ll also read about a brewer’s wife who’s an “accomplished artist” and designs all their labels. Using as-authenticas-possible vessels, an Ohio brewer — who’s not as passionate about beer as he is about history — makes beer based on ancient Sumerian recipes. Indiana is home to a brewery with a fanatical cult following and release parties that are attended by thousands. And Illinois is home to a tiny brew-

ery that’s “cramped for even one person to move around.” It’s also home to a Latin American brewery, and a brewery that was started because of a college class: they got an “A.” OK, now you’re thirsty. And you’re up for something different, so you’ll want to make a list of tour information and beers you’d like to try while you’re reading “Locally Brewed” and looking at its abundance of photographs. Author Anna Blessing makes that easy, since she offers brief (but factfilled) chapters on 20 breweries and a small list of pubs that feature their beers — which I thought was a nice, tempting tease for beer-drinking readers. I loved seeing

label and poster artwork here, and I also got a kick out of the “playlist” because, after all, what’s beer without tunes and friends? Even if you don’t live in the above states, beer distribution is often wide and besides, says Blessing, maybe a “pilgrimage is in order.” If that sounds like fun, grab a designated driver, a copy of “Locally Brewed,” and hit the road. Bottoms up! Terri Schlichenmeyer is a book reviewer from West Salem, Wis. She may be contacted at bookwormsez@yahoo. com.

Source Water Assessment

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. We cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at

We want our valued customers to be informed about their water quality. If you would like to learn more, please feel welcome to attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. The source water assessment for our supply has been completed by the Illinois EPA. If you would like a copy of this information, please stop by City Hall or call our water operator at __________________. To view a summary version of the completed Source Water Assessments, including: Importance of 815-878-2117 Source Water; Susceptibility to Contamination Determination; and documentation/recommendation of Source Water Protection Efforts, you may access the Illinois EPA website at The Illinois EPA does not consider the source water of DePue's wells to be susceptible to IOC, VOC, or SOC contamination. This determination was made primarily based on the identification of potential sources and routes of contamination, land-use activities around the wells, available hydrogeologic data, and monitoring results. Materials reviewed included the Well Site Survey Report, published in 1989, and subsequent investigations conducted in the DePue area. During the surveys two potential sources, routes, or possible problem sites were identified within the 1,000 foot Phase I Wellhead Protection Area (WHPA) of the wells. One is the DePue/New Jersey Zinc/Mobil Chemical Corp. Superfund Site which between 1905 and 1990 was used primarily for zinc smelting and additionally for sulfuric acid manufacturing, paint pigment production, and ammonium phosphate fertilizer manufacturing. The other site is a Casey’s gas station that is also the location of a leaking underground storage tank. The community has enacted a Restricted Groundwater Use Ordinance in this area which prohibits the installation of potable water wells. The Illinois EPA Division of Land Pollution approved this ordinance (I.D. R09102301) on October 10, 2009. Additional information can be found at: performed to assess for pathogenic contamination (e.g., virus, total coliform, e-coli) has also demonstrated that the source water is not susceptible to these types of contaminants.
