A deadly crash on Route 40 One dies, one injured in two-vehicle accident By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

MANLIUS — The investigation continues into a Wednesday traffic crash that claimed the life of a Bureau County woman.

Bureau County Coroner Janice Wamhoff said Lisa A. Boehle, 48, of Princeton was killed in a car/ semi-truck crash that occurred about 5 p.m. Wednesday on Route 40, north of Interstate 80. Wamhoff pronounced Boehle dead at the scene at 5:30 p.m.

The driver of the car was taken by ambulance to Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton and then lifeflighted to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. The driver of the semitruck was not injured, Wamhoff said. According to a Bureau County Sheriff’s Department

report issued Thursday morning, Boehle was a passenger in a 2007 Chevy Impala car driven by Carol K. Headley, 63, of Princeton. The vehicle was traveling eastbound on 1745 North Avenue and entered into the intersection with Route 40 in western Bureau County. The car stopped in the inter-

section and was struck by a northbound semi-truck driven by Zachary J. Schmidt, 31, of Maquoketa, Iowa. Schmidt told authorities he was going northbound on Route 40 when a car traveling eastbound on 1745 North

MANLIUS — Manlius Village Board did not take any action on Tuesday regarding the outdoor wood burner ordinance, which was a heated issue at last month’s meeting. Village Clerk Lori Roush confirmed no one from the public attended the January meeting to speak on the issue, therefore, the board tabled the agenda item. For months, the village board has been working on drafting an ordinance that would better regulate outdoor wood burners. Last year, resident Kyle Rowland brought the issue to the board after his neighbor built a homemade outdoor wood burner that was creating large amounts of smoke and fumes and was blowing right into his home. After village President Rob Hewitt met with the neighbor, he called the outdoor wood burner “a hazard” and confirmed the venting system was not constructed properly. At the village’s December meeting, several residents attended the meeting, and fellow neighbors spoke out about the health and safety issues they had with the wood burner. The owner of the wood burner was also present and backed up his side of the story by questioning the guidelines included in the ordinance the village wanted to pass. The village board ultimately decided not to vote on the ordinance and came to the conclusion that the neighbors needed to work out their issue because passing an ordinance

Ready to celebrate Homecoming Ohio Grade School third-graders Madison Doran (from front to back), Jay Conner and Jase O’Brien show their spirit of fun Thursday as the school celebrates Homecoming Week. Grade and high school students got together Thursday afternoon in the school gymnasium to show their creative costumes and play rousing games of musical chairs, balloon stomp and find-the-fruit-ina-plate-of-Cool-Whip. Homecoming events will continue with a homecoming dance Saturday at the school. Due to the frigid weather earlier this week, Ohio’s homecoming basketball game has been rescheduled to Jan. 29 at the school.

PRINCETON — The subzero temperatures Bureau County experienced this past week made life just a little tougher with the dangers it created for people, pets, homes and vehicles. The temperatures are finally back above zero, however, the winter months are hardly finished. This series is meant to bring attention to safety measures on various items affected on those bitter cold days. Prevent pipe woes Scott Owens, a plumber with Grasser’s Plumbing and Heating Inc., was working well over 12 hour days when the temperatures dropped below zero earlier this week. The frigid cold created several plumbing issues for residents who had frozen pipes or damage cause by frozen pipes. Owens’ knowledge on how to prevent these potentially costly accidents comes in handy when subzero temperatures threaten homes. According to Owens, some things to keep in mind: • The No. 1 thing everyone should know is where their main water shut-off valve is located within their home. Owens said it can normally be found in the basement, next to the water pressure tank or water meter. In case there is an emergency where someone needs to quickly shut the water off, it’s helpful to know exactly

Sheffield looks at abandoned properties By Andrew Fisher news@bcrnews.com

SHEFFIELD — On a day when trains got stuck, schools were closed, and the postal service had second thoughts about making deliveries, the Sheffield Village Board endured belowzero temperatures to hold its first meeting of 2014 Monday night. Topping the meeting was a discussion of options for three abandoned properties in the village. Two of the properties have abandoned houses that have owners who have not responded to the village’s request for repair or demolition. One of property owners has agreed to tear his house.   Newspaper notifications

In other business: • The mayor and board thanked village employees for doing a good job on snow removal and keeping the streets in good driving condition following the latest round of winter storms.  • The village received thank you letters from village employees who earned Christmas bonuses for the year.  • Bills totaling $32,198.18 were approved. A payment on the sewer alt bond of nearly $3,500 was made.  The next board meeting is scheduled for Jan. 20, at 7 p.m. will be published to notify the owners of the two property owners who did not respond to the village’s inquiries.  Village board members also asked Mayor Bill Rosenow to get clarification of

the date that action will be completed on the dilapidated property at 115 E. Farnham St. The owner of that property has agreed to tear the house down and leave the garage, but the board feels there needs to

be a time frame to complete demolition and clean up.  Rosenow said he will contact the village attorney about legal remedies, if they are deemed necessary.  Board member Rick Cernovich further questioned the status of the Tim Girkin property on East Railroad Street. Rosenow said the county zoning board was working with the individual and will follow through on declaring the property dilapidated and subjecting any structures to removal. In other zoning and property business, approval was given to Dave Bohm to rezone his property from M-1 to R-2 zoning through the county zoning board.  Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Winter fun in your own backyard Heading to the parks for winter recreation By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — When the winter weather moderates a bit, area residents are encouraged to remember to enjoy the outdoors with a walk-in trip to the Princeton parks. On Tuesday, Princeton Park District Executive Director Elaine Russell said the beginning of the year is always a busy time with New Year’s resolutions, and this year is no exception

with the perennial resolution to get more exercise and live a healthier lifestyle. For people wanting to get some fresh air and outdoor exercise, both Zearing Park and the City-County Park are gated for the winter, but people can walk into those parks and use them for winter recreation, Russell said, however, the Zearing Park walking path will not be cleared but will stay in its natural winter state, she said. Also, the Alexander Park and the Metro Center grounds, along with the nearby West Side Park, are available for cross coun-

try skiing, snow shoeing or walks, Russell said. For people who don’t want to venture outside during these cold days, the Bureau County Metro Center is another option, she added. The Princeton Park District Board met in regular session Monday evening at the Metro Center. On the agenda was a discussion of an annexation and tax abatement ordinance for the Bailey Subdivision on the north side of Princeton. Russell said the tax abatement for the homeowners in the Bailey Subdivision began in 2009. The park district has received those taxes which are then

paid back to the city of Princeton. The amount owed by the park district to the city of Princeton for the 2009-12 time period is $26,291. The city and park district will continue working on an intergovernmental agreement dealing with the Bailey Subdivision. Looking ahead to the coming year, Russell said 2014 will be a time of celebration as district observes the Metro Center’s 25th anniversary. Special events are being finalized for different observances throughout the coming year. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Dan Kuhn seeks re-election Incumbent Dan Kuhn is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for Putnam County clerk and recorder in the upcoming General Primary Election on March 18. Kuhn said it has been an honor and Kuhn a privilege to work for the Putnam County citizens the past 11 years. “If re-elected, I will continue to serve as a full-time county clerk and recorder, providing customer service guaranteed to be prompt, proficient, professional and progressive,” Kuhn said. “I will also remain fiscally responsible and fully cooperate with other officials to ensure the county government continues to run efficiently.” Kuhn said he has successfully met numerous challenges during the past 11 years, including the implementation of several state and federal mandates. “Those challenges and mandates included a discovery recount in the 2004 State’s Attorney’s race which revealed no irregularities, implementation of Optical Scan and touch screen voting systems federally mandated by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 utilizing federal and state grant monies to defray the initial costs, collaborating with

the county treasurer and supervisor of assessments to implement a state-ofthe-art property tax system at a substantial savings for the county, and the implementation of an automated land records management system using automation funds and no tax dollars,” Kuhn said. If re-elected, Kuhn said he will continue to systematically conserve and preserve historical documents, letters and maps dating back to the organization of Putnam County in 1831, which were discovered while searching for records in the original courthouse vault. He believes these documents will help preserve the county’s history for future generations. Likewise, he will continue to support the county’s ongoing courthouse preservation project. “Our original courthouse building was completed in 1839 and remains as the oldest courthouse in the state of Illinois that is still in use. Next year will mark the building’s 175th anniversary,” Kuhn said. “It is one of our county’s most important landmarks, and it should be preserved.” Kuhn said the residents of Putnam County deserve “honest, dedicated and experienced hardworking county officials,” and he said he will continue to bring these values to the office.

Bureau County Senior Center offers balance program dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Senior Center will host a new program to help area senior citizens who have concerns with physical balance. Bureau County Senior Center Director Denise Ihrig said the new program, “A Matter of Balance,” is an eight-week course which begins Feb. 5, meets twice a week and ends Feb. 28. Sessions will be held Wednesdays and Fridays, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the senior center, 16 W. Marion St. in Princeton. Pre-registration is required with a suggested donation of $10 to cover cost of workbooks, Ihrig said. The program is conducted through the Western Illinois Area Agency

It was discussed that targeting one person with an ordinance was also not the right thing to do.

On Thursday, Boedeker said this program teaches and encourages older adults to talk openly with their families and physicians about any balancing issues. Typically, the program does not encourage other family members or friends to attend the sessions with the seniors, but exceptions have been made in certain situations, she said. The Princeton sessions will have the same two trained coaches for all eight sessions, with one of those coaches being Debbie Lindberg, staff member at the Bureau County Senior Center, Boedeker said. The sessions are definitely open to the public and not limited to people who On Thursday, Hewitt said the board has put the ordinance on hold and continues to do more research on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards which have been discussed to use in the ordinance. “We don’t want to have to pass it, but it there continues to be a problem, then we will have to that,” he said. He wants to make it clear so all residents realize the issue on the ordinance surrounds only outdoor wood burners. He said it would not affect any indoor wood burners, such as fireplaces and other types of burners within the home. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Each of the eight sessions uses a format of group discussion, problem–solving strategies, videos and gentle physical exercise, Boedeker said. Older adults learn positive coping methods to reduce fear of falling and remain active and independent. Participants will become more confident about managing falls by believing

they can increase their strength, find ways to reduce falls, and protect themselves if they do fall. As another benefit to the program, participants have reported they have increased the amount they exercise on a regular basis, Boedeker said.

is especially relevant to modular homes. • If the pipes freeze, use a heat gun or hair dryer to blow warm air on the affected area. Owens said don’t use a flame torch, which could easily cause a fire or other hazard. • If there is a certain pipe in the home that has caused a lot of trouble over time, it’s a good idea to replace it with Pex Piping, which is made from plastic material. The plastic has greater ability to expand if a pipe does freeze. Pipes split because ice expands further than water and creates more pressure the pipe cannot handle. • Owens said it’s always handy to have phone numbers for the local plumber, city or village water department or electric department written down in a safe place, so when an emergency does happen, they are readily available.

From Page 1 where the valve is located. When a pipe freezes, the first step is to shut the water off immediately. • Owens said in older homes, it’s always a good idea to double check and make sure the water shut-off valve is working properly. • Never leave the garden hose attached to an outside spigot. While it seems harmless, keeping the hose connected could affect the indoor pipes. • For piping that is located on an outdoor wall — usually kitchen sink pipes — it’s always a good idea to open the cabinets under the sink to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. • Let the water in kitchen or bathroom sinks trickle. It keeps the water in the pipes moving and doesn’t allow it to sit and freeze in the pipes. Owens said this

OGLESBY — The Illinois Valley Community College board on Jan. 9 signed off on a seven-year agreement on property tax assessments for Exelon Generation Company’s LaSalle Power Station south of Seneca. Pending approval by eight other taxing bodies, Exelon will pay IVCC $1.7 million for 2013 taxes, $1.6 million for 2014, $1.5 million from 2015 through 2018 and $1.6 million in 2019. “The proposed agreement is a tax-rate freeze (.35379) with a specific annual EAV,” said Cheryl Roelfsema, IVCC vice president for business services and finance. “Exelon guarantees the payment without regard to IVCC’s tax rate.” As part of the agreement, legal disputes over the 2009 through 2012 assessments will be dropped. For tax year 2012, IVCC collected $1,739,635 from Exelon, Roelfsema said. IVCC President Jerry Corcoran welcomed the settlement saying it would help IVCC “budget for the near term and long term. We appreciate the fine work done by Exelon representatives and all of the taxing bodies. This provides everyone with a degree of certainty.” In other business, the board approved: • The appointment of Sue Isermann as interim vice president for Learning and Student Development effective March 1. Isermann, associate vice president for Academic Affairs and Dean of Workforce Development, has worked at IVCC 33 years, including 17 as an instructor. • The appointment of Kathryn Ross as controller to fill the vacancy created by the July resignation of Patrick Berry. A graduate of Eastern Illinois University (finance) and Kankakee Community College, Ross worked previously as controller/accounting manager at Mendota

Numerical Control equipment from Iverson & Company of Des Plaines for the technology center’s CNC lab. The equipment will be paid for by CTC capital campaign funds. • A $10,000 transfer from the education fund as the local match for Project Success, IVCC’s federally-funded TRiO program serving approximately 160 lowincome, disabled and first-generation students. The board also learned: • IVCC student and Sigma Kappa Delta member Kelly McDonough of Peru has had her original writing “Between the Lines” accepted for presentation at the 2014 Sigma Tau Delta International Convention in Savannah, Ga., Feb. 26-March 4. It is the third straight year an IVCC Sigma Kappa Delta member has been recognized. • Last fall, IVCC student athletes had an overall 2.99 GPA across eight sports. • Sociology instructor Jared Olesen recently earned his PhD from the University of California-Irvine, and nursing instructor Margie Francisco earned her doctorate of education from the University of Phoenix. • Cashier and artist Jill Hejl has had one of her illustrations published in the book “Quotes Illustrated: 100 Works of Art Inspired by Words,” and had an art opening at the Bucktown Center for the Arts in Davenport in November. • The 10th annual IVCC Irish Night March 1 at Ottawa’s Knights of Columbus Hall will feature the Larkin and Moran Brothers, a popular Chicago Irish band. • Foundation alumni coordinator Sue Monroe has been elected to a two-year term as an at-large board director for the Central Illinois Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).

Picture perfect I like art, and a trip to the art museum in Chicago is one of my favorite excursions. I also like to go to galleries, and I appreciate so many local artists — Kenny Stoner, Denny Elliott, Dana Collins, Bart Kassabaum, Mary Win Norris — just to name a few. In other words, I admire those who take a paintbrush in hand, place a blank canvas before them, and then create a masterpiece before our very eyes. While there are those who paint and create professionally, I have to believe we are all painters in our own right. Whether we realize it or not, we’ve all painted a picture, but seldom does it ever make it to a canvas. That’s right; our pictures live in our heads. You know what I mean ... somewhere down that Terri dusty road in our minds, we have a Simon painted a picture of what we expected life to look like. In most cases, it’s a youthful painting with picket fences, butterflies, blue skies and lots of smiles on the faces that grace the invisible canvas. When we were young and we dreamed of the future, I contend we carefully crafted that aforementioned painting. Coupled with our little-kid experiences, dreams and aspirations, we added things one-by-one to our canvasses, careful to stay within the lines of what we thought represented the perfect picture — the perfect life, and we spent our youth revisiting that masterpiece, knowing someday it would definitely become a reality. Some of our canvasses held pictures of the perfect mate, accompanied by just the perfect amount of children and perfect, well-behaved pets. In the background, there was the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood with the perfect vehicles parked in the perfect garage. The backyard held the perfect pool with a perfectly-manicured lawn and a perfect flower garden where perfect plants never died. There was more ... Each one of us painted the perfect job with the perfect salary. Our pockets were full, and our home was beautiful. The sky was always blue; the grass was always green; and though we may have painted a cloud or two, no rain ever fell in our picture-perfect world. Butterflies floated through our masterpiece, and a rainbow could be seen in the distance. And best of all — perhaps most important of all — we painted a smile on everyone’s face ... a big, broad smile that would never be erased. If you can tell me the picture you painted in your head long ago didn’t somewhat resemble that, I want to meet you ... but I don’t think I’ll get many calls. For you see, I think most of us as young people dreamed about life in the future, knowing that canvas in our heads was going to come to fruition. Like the painting, life would be just about perfect. Fast forward quite a few years, and the painting which once lived in my head is filed so far back on that dusty road in my mind, that I don’t know if I could ever retrieve it — even if I wanted to. Somewhere along my journey through this world, that masterpiece got smudged; the canvas might have even been torn; and the colors kind of ran together. And the smiles? Well, that’s probably another column ... Don’t misunderstand. I am happy. I love my life, and I love everyone and everything in it. Quite frankly, with the exception of Publisher’s Clearing House’s refusal to stop by, I wouldn’t change much. Life is very good. But that doesn’t address the picture in my head — that picture most of us painted on that invisible canvas. I contend that picture is what causes us many problems in life as we reflect on what was “supposed” to be and what really happened. But perhaps the sooner we can forget about that picture in our head and focus on the masterpiece we paint every day, the sooner we can realize that smiles don’t have to be painted on ... they can just happen.

Mike the cat This column was originally published in the Bureau County Republican on Oct. 15, 2011. As the cat sits here staring at me, I can’t help but think, I’ve always been a dog guy. When I was growing up, I lived on a farm and we always had dogs. Dogs with cool names like Tojo and Bozo, Luke and Rusty. We even had a beagle named Cecil. Sure we had cats. It was a farm and what farm doesn’t have cats? I figured that the cats were just there for the dogs to get some exercise every now and then. I always pictured that when I grew up and became a world-famous cartoonist, that I would have my drawing table set near a fireplace with my faithful Basset Hound at my feet snoring and experiencing occasional flatulence. His name would be Barney or Bob or Billy or Billy-Bob or at least something that started with the letter B because that’s just how a Basset Hound should be named with the exceptions of Fred and Flash. He would have those kind of dog jowls that flop around on those rare occasions when he would feel the need to run. His leg would move involuntarily when he was dreaming. Basically I wanted a four-legged version of myself including the occasional flatulence (I gotta have somebody to blame it on.) Well that was my dream. And then I got married. My wife doesn’t really care for dogs. It has something to do with her being a little girl and not apparently having the appropriate foot speed to outrun a slobbering Saint Bernard. It’s some kind of story like that but I wasn’t really paying attention. All I know is that she doesn’t have the same kind of appreciation for canines that I do. So we became cat people. During most of our 20 years of marriage,

Greg Wallace FROM THE SKETCHBOOK we have possessed a feline of some kind. We’ve had cats named Seuss, Pillsbury, Nestle, Seuss II, Fuzzy and Gracie. My wife and the kids like to pet and play with the cats and I spend most of my time keeping them off the drawing table and trying to figure out what they’re thinking as they stare at me with their cold, soulless eyes. No luck so far. We were actually cat free at the time my son brought home a rescue kitten a while back. He said at the time that he had found it mewing in a wet pile of leaves and decided to bring it home. I later found out there may have been a slightly different version of this story but fortunately for him the statute of limitations has run out. This kitten was tiny. It had just opened its’ eyes and we actually bottle fed it for the first few weeks that he was in our house. It would take turns napping on everyone’s lap for warmth. Yes, even my lap with the occasional flatulence. The day after it showed up, somebody mentioned that they thought it looked like a male kitten. I figured that this person knew what they were talking about because I surely had no idea since the animal literally fit in the palm of your hand and had no discernible “boy” or “girl” parts. I heard somebody say it was male so in my mind it was a male. I named it Mike. Mike the cat has grown into being a cherished member of our tight-knit family. So you can imagine my dismay when my little daughter yelled at me to come to the door because there was another cat fighting with Mike out in the front yard. However, they weren’t fighting. Quite the contrary. I felt like putting on some Barry White

and letting them have some privacy. Over the next few days, we found out that Mike liked to “fight.” Mike liked to “fight” a lot. My wife looked at me and asked if maybe I had made a mistake in assuming that Mike was a male. I told her that after the initial statement of the cat being male, I never really checked. I didn’t know it was my job and as I have already pointed out with the Saint Bernard story, I don’t always pay that much attention. I think that this would be the proper time to point out that if I am ever reincarnated back to this earth as a feline who likes to walk around with my tail up in the air, I would appreciate it if you humans would have the decency to look away. It’s the right thing to do. In the interest of wrapping this story up, in what can only be described as a medical miracle, Mike the cat gave birth to three healthy kittens in my daughter’s laundry basket last Saturday morning. We’re already discussing a future surgical procedure for Mike and who knows what the cat’s going to be thinking with those cold, soulless eyes after that. I am sure that in the writing of this column, I may have inadvertently offended a whole host of people from cat lovers, PETA, the SPCA, Bob Barker and most of all, anyone named Mike. To all of you I offer my most sincere of apologies. I would ask that you refrain from sending me scathing emails or lecturing me over the phone. I would ask that if you feel strongly enough to chastise me, please do it in the form of a written letter. I’m going to need something to line the litter box.

Fifteen hours of training are required for all volunteer tutors. Required training sessions will be from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 1 and Feb. 8 in Room CTC-221 in the college’s new Peter Miller Community Technology Center.

Boys basketball: Hall 65, Orion 64

Venegas makes his one shot count By Dan Dwyer sports@bcrnews.com

Collin Aimone splits the Orion defense for a shot in Wednesday’s action at Red Devils Gymnasium. Hall won 65-64 on Taggart Venegas’ last-second shot.

SPRING VALLEY — Senior guard Taggert Venegas ended a quiet offensive night, hitting the biggest shot of the game with two seconds left just inside the three-point line to lift the Hall Red Devils over the Orion Chargers 65-64 Thursday. It was his only basket of the night. With 28 seconds left in the game, Hall senior guard Miguel Villarreal knocked down a big three-pointer from the top of the key to give the Red Devils a 63-62 lead. Orion quickly answered as sophomore guard Noah Clarke cut hard towards the basket for two points while drawing a foul. He missed the one and one, leaving the door open for the Red Devils with 11.4

seconds left on the clock and trailing by only one point. After a Red Devils timeout, Villarreal looked to drive to the basket but couldn’t find an opening when Venegas popped wide open out to the baseline and drilled the game-winner a foot inside the three-point line. “I told the kids that the way you played the first half you deserved to lose, and the way you played the second half you deserved to win. Whether they would have made a miracle last shot or something they still deserved to win because we out played them the second half, and lucky for us we made one extra play than they did,” Hall coach Mike Filippini said. After taking a quick 8-0 lead the Red Devils steadily let the Chargers,

who went on a 10-2 scoring run late in the second quarter to take a 33-21 lead with 1:13 left in the half. Hall battled back into the game with a 12-2 run spanning the last 48 seconds of the second quarter until the 4:42 mark of the third, cutting the Charger lead to four points with the score of 37-33. “Hall did a nice job in the second half. They came out and extended the pressure a little bit. They got some pressure on the basketball, we just didn’t do well enough of actually taking care of the basketball,” Orion coach Brent Hutton said. “It’s been kind of our nemesis is that we get some pressure on us and we just make some really bad decisions with the ball but a lot of it was caused by their hustle.”

Boiler Girls set their trap at St. Bede By Dan Dwyer sports@bcrnews.com

PERU — The Kewanee Boiler Girls’ 1-3-1 halfcourt trap was too much for St. Bede Thursday at the Academy as the Lady Bruins fell 51-27. The Lady Bruins took their only lead of the game on a nice entry pass from senior forward Raley Mauck to sophomore center Hanna Bima for an easy layup with 2:40 seconds left to play in the first, making the score 9-7. It was all Boiler Girls for the rest of the contest. The pesky Boiler defense kept the St. Bede offense off the board for 10 minutes and 40 seconds spanning the last 2:40 seconds of the first and the entire second quarter. Kewanee freshman forward Rachael Moraski pestered the Lady Bruin offense as she continually tipped passes and made steals resulting in easy layups for the Boiler Girls offense. Moraski finished with a game-high

20 points. “She’s a freshman but she’s got a wing span, and we try to get her up there and get her to use that. She closes the lanes down pretty well, and she plays with a lot of energy,” Kewanee coach Chuck Blake said. The Boiler Girls went on a 13-point run to take a 20-9 lead into the half highlighted by three straight steals by Moraski that led to six Boiler Girls points on easy layups. St. Bede looked to get back into the game as they scored the first four points of the second half but that was short lived. The Boiler Girls continued to make steals and pour in easy buckets against the Lady Bruins. The Boiler Girls finished out the contest on a 31-14 run as they cruised to an easy 51-27 victory. “We held a varsity squad to 9 points at half on their floor. They’ve been our nemesis, we’ve had trouble with St. Bede, and I’m sure we will in BCR photo/Dan Dwyer the future.

Filippini attributes the streaky play to a long layoff due to not practicing over the weekend and the winter storm that kept the team from practicing Monday and Tuesday as well. “I think we were a little rusty,” Filippini said. “We gave them a stern talking to at halftime, threw some stuff in the locker room and it seemed to get them going. I don’t know if that stuff works but it seemed to work tonight because we came out in the second half and played a lot better.” For the remainder of the game each team would trade small leads and baskets until the pivotal game winning shot by Venegas sealed the Red Devils’ win. “These kids don’t quit, and they’ve done that all year long. They haven’t quit all year long and that’s a great quality to have,” Filippini said. “We told them we don’t have a good enough team to play half of a game and expect to win, we got lucky at the end of the game but we deserved to win.” The Red Devils were led by Villarreal with a gamehigh 22 points, junior guard A.J Gaeta (13) and senior forward Austin Schmitt (12).

Dealing with weather challenges Adult pigs prefer 60 to 65 degree temperatures. Baby pigs desire an 80 to 85 degree environment. To meet both of their needs, we strive for a 73 degree room temperature in the birthing rooms and then cool the room to 70 degrees as the pigs reach 7 days old. The mothers do very well at these temperatures, but baby pigs chill at 73 degrees. To accommodate the baby pigs’ need for an 80-plus degree environment, they are provided with a black rubber mat and a heat lamp to achieve a comfortable area for them to nap in. I enjoy seeing a litter of 12 or 13 baby pigs stretched out on their mat and under their heat lamp. To me that is a beautiful site. The baby pigs will be attracted to the light and warmth of the heat lamp. In weather like we have had, the farrowing attendant must pay special attention to seeing that each individual piglet is dried off, receives colostrums milk and finds the warm spot under the heat lamp. The first few hours

Then they will not work to provide the correct air exchange. In the gestation area where only adult animals reside, the desired temperature is 60 to 65 degrees. In their home, the correct air exchange is necessary to provide fresh air and exhaust carbon dioxide. Just as with baby pigs, too much air flow causes them to chill. Not enough air flow creates a damp uncomfortable environment, and an environment that supports bacterial growth which increases the chance of the animal becoming sick and not feeling well. If the female animal becomes sick and has a fever, the chance of them aborting their litter increases. On Monday, I found one building with three out of six fans not working due to snow blowing around the fan blades causing them to stick. I was able to remedy the problem and achieve a desirable environment for those animals. For an experienced herdsman, it is easy to tell if an animal is comfortable or not by

Steve Cowser COMMENTARY of the piglets’ life determines its future and how well it will grow its entire life. The weather challenge is making sure the ventilation is working properly. The correct airflow is necessary to remove carbon dioxide and provide fresh air. Too much air movement increases evaporation and causes the baby pigs to chill. Not enough air movement causes a damp environment which makes the animals uncomfortable and increases bacterial growth which challenges the animals. The specific problem in extreme cold is the fans, which exhaust the air and are cycled on and off for the correct environment. A common setting we use is one minute on and six minutes off. During the off-cycle the fan blades can have ice and snow freeze around them and become stuck.

watching their behavior. If they are huddled too close together and their hair is standing up on their back and they are grumpy, it is a sign they are cold. If they are spread out and not touching each other, they are too hot. Either one is not desirable. It is important in animal production for the animals to be comfortable. A comfortable environment promotes good health and animals that are happy. Animals that are healthy and happy, do well. Another challenge in severe winter weather like we have had is getting employees to work. I had two employees stay all night at my house on two different nights. I used a tractor and an end loader to get the three of us to work. The other employees did not make it to work for two days. The three of use did the work that six people normally do. I am very appreciative of those employees who were willing to be there. Steve Cowser is a pork producer in the Bradford area.
