What’s on Marini’s mind? SV Mayor releases his 2014 goal list By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

SPRING VALLEY — From its growing relationship with its Italian Sister City to signing paperwork for the start of

a new wastewater treatment plant — 2014 is already shaping up to be a productive one for Spring Valley. With a new slate, Spring Valley Walt Marini has several goals he’s looking

to get accomplished this year. His list contains 14 goals for 2014, but the top five are the ones he’s got his eye on already. At the very top, he plans to move forward with the planning and design of the new wastewater treatment plant

and inspect and televise the east and west sewer interceptors and make necessary repairs. Spring Valley is now sitting on a $9.6 million grant from Gov. Pat Quinn to construct a new wastewater treatment plant, which has not seen

any major upgrades since 1985. While construction is not expected to begin until next year, there’s plenty of designing and planning to get through this year in the prepping stages. Next on the list, is to revitalize the downtown

LaMoille School updates technology LAMOILLE — The LaMoille School District is one of 22 school districts in Illinois to be approved for the School Technology Revolving Loan Program. The Illinois State Board of Education made the recent announcement, saying a total of $3.5 million has been awarded through the School Technology Revolving Loan Program. LaMoille’s portion is $53,200. In making the announcement, Illinois State Superintendent of Education Christopher A. Koch said the low-interest loans will allow school districts to use technology for classroom instruction and staff development. “We’re very grateful to be able to offer districts these loans,” Koch said. ”It’s essential we ensure students gain experience working with the technology and tools that will help build 21st-century skills. Today’s students are tomorrow’s workers in an economy driven by technology.’’ On Monday, LaMoille School Superintendent Ricardo Espinoza said he’s very excited for LaMoille to have been selected for the technology loan. When he became superintendent for the LaMoille district last summer, updating technology was definitely one of his goals for the district. Also since that time, a technology coordinator has been hired for the district, he added.

PRINCETON — The subzero temperatures Bureau County recently experienced made life just a little less bearable with the dangers it created for people, pets, homes and vehicles. The temperatures are finally back above zero, however, the winter months are far from finished. This series is meant to bring attention to safety measures on various items affected on those bitter cold days. Protect yourself PRINCETON — When thinking about the most common winter weather health dangers, Deb Wood, Perry Memorial Hospital’s EMS coordinator and safety officer, immediately thinks frostbite and fractures from falls on icy pavement. While it sounds silly, she said walking like a duck with the feet turned out and full waddle back and forth with each short step, could help save from a slip to the frozen ground. The walking method gives a better base support than the normal longer walking strides.

No injuries to train/tractor incident By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — The North Main Street railroad crossing in Princeton was closed Sunday morning following

an incident involving a freight train and a city-owned small tractor removing snow at the train station. On Monday, Princeton Police Tom Root said the incident hap-

pened about 8 a.m. Sunday when a city employee was clearing snow from the walk at the Amtrak depot and apparently didn’t see the approaching, slowmoving freight train.

The snow removal bucket clipped the side of the train, spinning the tractor around. The train engineer was able to stop the train, which blocked the North Main Street crossing.

Princeton officers were stationed on North Main Street to reroute traffic away from the railroad crossing for a couple hours, Root said. The other railroad crossings in town were not blocked and people used those crossings, he said. There were no injuries reported and only minor damage to the city equipment, Root said. BNSF investigators were called to the site to investigate before the freight train could be moved. During that time, there was an Amtrak passenger train scheduled to stop in Princeton, but the passengers were unloaded at the Railroad Avenue crossing and then shuttled to the train depot by Bureau Putnam Area Rural Transit (BPART) services, Root said.

Emergency personnel respond to house fire By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

NORMANDY — Area emergency personnel responded to a weekend house fire in Normandy in northwestern Bureau County. On Monday, Walnut Fire Chief Matt Michlig said the Walnut Fire Department got its call about 2:15 p.m. Saturday to respond to a structure fire in Normandy. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fully engulfed garage, with the east side of the nearby two-story house also on fire.

Firefighters were on the seen for about two and one-half hours, Michlig said. The garage was a total loss and about 25 percent of the house was also heavily damaged, leaving the house not livable at this time, the fire chief said. There were people within the house at the time of the fire and the renter called in the fire, Michlig said. One person from the house needed treatment for smoke inhalation and a firefighter received a minor hand injury.

The fire appears to have started in the garage, but the state fire chief has ruled the cause of the fire to be undetermined, Michlig said. Assisting the Walnut Fire Department at the scene were the Tampico, Manlius and Ohio fire departments, and the Princeton and Tampico ambulances. The Bureau County Red Cross also responded to the fire and are assisting two adults who lived at the home. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Health department joins cancer awareness alert By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — The Bureau/Putnam County Health Department has joined a national effort to promote awareness of January as Cervical Health Awareness Month. The National Cervical Cancer Coalition and the American Sexual Health Association are calling for expanded access to the life-saving screening tests and vaccines which can often prevent cervical cancer. On Friday, Bureau/ Putnam County Health Department administra-

tor Diana Rawlings said the local health department does have the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program as part of its services. Two in-person counselors are on staff at the health department to help people procure healthcare coverage, she said. The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program provides free mammograms, breast exams, pelvic exams and Pap tests for uninsured women. The local health department partners with many local medical providers to offer this program for uninsured women in Bureau

As far as the symptoms of cervical cancer, Bureau/ Putnam County Health Department Educator Laurie Geuther said there are no early symptoms for cervical cancer which is why getting a Pap test regularly is so important. Late cervical cancer may cause abnormal vaginal bleeding. Just how treatable is

Marini From Page 1 are no longer worthwhile to put back into a viable business venture,” he said. “We will also move ahead with the demolition of the buildings that are no longer structurally sound to improve the appearance and safety of our commercial district.” Third on Marini’s list, is to help market the Honeywell Hobb’s building in hopes that a new manufacturer will occupy the facility and create jobs for the area. Fourth is to support the March sales tax referendum, in order to raise funds for the expansion of the street program. “We need to continually work on infrastructure, physical maintenance and improvements of our

community in order to provide a quality of life for our residents and a positive business climate for Marini our commercial, industrial and service companies. They have already invested in our community,” he said. “Our schools are also making capital improvements and we need to strive to meet this level.” The fifth goal on Marini’s mind, is to expand investment in tourism related activities and marketing. “The improvements, programs and activities will improve living and working conditions that I hope will retain our existing residents and professionals, as well as, new people and businesses to our city,” he said. “This results in an increase in

Bureau County Republican • bcrnews.com property values and sales tax revenues and jobs.”

What else is on the list? • Continue to work with the city council and run the city in an efficient manner. • Appoint a replacement for the street superintendent position due to the retirement of John Schultz in March, and also appoint the assistant street superintendent. • Work with Spring Valley Elementary and Illinois Department of Transportation on the Safe Routes to School grant, and select the location of the stoplight that will provide a safe route for students to walk and bike to school. • Develop an improved sidewalk program for both

Weather From Page 1 Wood also recommends wearing flat, rubber soled shoes and boots, which are more slip resistant. She said avoid leather or plastic, fake leather shoe and boot soles. Wood also suggests: • To avoid the dangers of frostbite, people should dress for the weather. “If you’re going out on a bad day, dress like it’s a bad day,” Wood said. Leaving skin exposed on a bitter cold day leaves the potential of frostbite. Dress in layers. Frostbite most commonly affects the fingers and toes, ears and tip of the nose. The first signs consist of redness, pain to the skin area or numbness. People should immediately get to a warm room, or at least get out of the cold wind, according to Wood. Avoid walking on frostbitten feet or toes, as it could increase the damage. Immerse the affected area in warm water. Don’t use a heating pad, fireplace, stove or heat lamp to warm up, as it could cause burns to the numb portions of the hand. • Hypothermia occurs when the temperature of a body drops below 95 degrees. Wood said the two types of people most susceptible are young children and older adults, because their bodies have the hardest time regulating body temperatures. The warning signs include shivering, exhaustion,

commercial and residential areas. • Work with Sullivan’s Foods on their development agreement to assist in the grocery complex construction. • Work on getting an Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant for additional lighting along the sidewalk — from Illinois Street to the new entrance of the Barto Landing — in conjunction with the new Illinois River Bridge. • See the replacement of Spring Valley’s existing street signs and consider finding a signage program. • Seek means to expand Spring Valley’s industrial park to have available properties for growth and development of smaller industrial and manufacturing opportunities.

confusion, memory loss and slurred speech. “If you know of an elderly person, someone should keep an eye on them and check them to make sure they haven’t run out of fuel to heat the home and they are keeping warm with extra layers,” Wood

said. “One of the first signs of hypothermia is when the teeth start chattering,” she said. “When the body shivers, it’s trying to increase the temperature of the body.” Victims of hypothermia should get to a warm room

or shelter, remove any wet clothing, warm the center of the body first using dry layers or an electric blanket, drinking warm beverages can also help increase the body temperature and people should seek medical attention as soon as possible. • People who are not physically active on a regular basis, should not shovel the drive or sidewalks. Shoveling snow is strenuous activity a lot of people don’t realize, which can lead to cardiac arrest. Hire a company to plow the drive. If that’s not feasible, remember to shovel in increments and take several breaks. Wood said avoid drinking caffeine during this time, as it increases heart rate. • If out ice skating, and a skater falls through the ice, Wood said do not run to the hole to save the person. “The ice is giving away and running to the hole only puts you in risk of falling through, as well,” she said. Wood said try throwing something to them to help pull them out. If a ladder is available, place the ladder on the ice and inch out to them. The ladder better distributes weight across the ice. When the person is out, tell them to stay on their stomach and inch forward away from the hole. “Get the person out of the wind and wet clothes as quickly as possible,” Wood said.

An HPV vaccination is available to protect females against the types of HPV that cause most cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers. The HPV vaccine is recommended for 11- and 12-year-old girls, and for females 13 through 26 years of age who did not get any or all of the shots when they were younger, she said.

Women who are vaccinated against HPV still need to have regular Pap tests to screen for cervical cancer, Geuther said. The thing to remember is that early prevention and detection save lives, Rawlings said. According to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, about 79 million Americans currently have human papilloma-

virus (HPV), which is a major cause of cervical cancer. Each year in the United States, about 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and more than 4,000 die as a result. In both the United states and the world, the disease impacts disproportionately poor women. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Joey Schillaci of Princeton recently took advantage of the warmer weather to help shovel his driveway. Perry Memorial Hospital’s Safety Officer and EMS Coordinator Deb Wood reminded those who are not physically active on a daily basis should avoid shoveling snow. She said people forget it’s strenuous activity for the body, and those who choose to do it should remember to take breaks and stay hydrated with water.

PROPHETSTOWN – There is snow and a few pine trees where eight buildings once stood in downtown Prophetstown. By May, a construction crew might be working there. It’s been more than six months since a fire started behind Cindy Jean’s Restaurant on July 15 and spread to destroy a significant portion of the historic downtown. The rubble has been cleared, and the town and its displaced residents are moving on with their lives. The rebuilding effort is expected to pick up steam in late April or early May, when it’s possible that a developer will “break dirt” on a new building, said Larry DeNeve, chairman of the town’s Economic Development Committee. That developer is about “99 percent” committed, DeNeve said, adding that two others have expressed a strong interest. Rebuilding could begin less than a year after the fire because the town quickly formed a redevelopment plan, organized the cleanup and took ownership of five of the eight lots. Mayor Steve Swanson said the town hopes to acquire two more lots soon. “The following day [after the fire], a bunch of us got together and had a meeting – people from Main Street and some of the property owners that were affected,” Swanson said. “I kind of gave them my plan, what I thought should be done. “And it took a while. There was some opposition to it. But we finally got everybody on board, that we’d try to clean it up collectively.” Swanson hopes to have construction on four of the lots by the fall.

DeNeve credits Swanson, who is retired but previously worked in construction, for getting the town to where it is today, far ahead of other small communities that have experienced similar fires. “We had the right mayor for this crisis,” DeNeve said. A bigger and tested fire department Prophetstown Fire Chief Keith Crady recalled the day of the fire as “hectic. “It was one of those days that I wish wouldn’t have happened,” he said. “We still talk about it at the station from time to time.” Those talks, Crady said, often involve what firefighters could have done differently, quicker or better. He said his department now is better prepared for a large fire, having dealt with one just two blocks from the department. “Before, you think, ‘It’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen,’” Crady said. “But it can happen.” About two months after the fire, seven new firefighters had joined the town’s volunteer department. All seven volunteers have stayed on, and Crady said that while some of them probably are ready to fight fires, he won’t make them if they aren’t comfortable. There are plenty of jobs to do at a fire scene, he said. Since the July 15 blaze, the Prophetstown Fire Department has responded to “three or four” other fires, Crady

said, adding the department usually responds to about 11 a year, including calls in other towns for mutual aid. About 30 other departments helped fight the downtown fire. Moving forward Because the town can’t offer large financial incentives such as tax breaks, it will donate the lots, which have been appraised at about $7,000, Swanson said. Local construction companies and suppliers have offered their services and products at a discount, DeNeve said, to ensure a quick rebuild. The businesses that were there at the time of the fire likely won’t return. Cindy Jean’s still might rebuild, owner Cindy Eriks said, but a decision won’t be made for a while. While the businesses that were lost weren’t bringing the town significant sales tax revenue, DeNeve said, they were reflective of the downtown and Prophetstown community. “I know for one thing, and it’s hard to imagine, but it takes a loss before we all appreciate what we have,” he said. “I don’t know why it does, but it does.” To help Prophetstown has set up a fund, “Rebuild Prophetstown Strong,” to help clean up and rebuild the downtown. Donations can be made at Farmers National Bank branches, in Prophetstown, Geneseo and Morrison, as well as at IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union locations.

From the editor’s desk I had somebody ask me the other day why I’ve chosen to live in Illinois, since I continue to complain about the cold weather, mixed with the wind chill and unpredictable amounts of snow that blankets our Midwestern world. The answer is easy. I complain about it because I can. On the flip side of the coin, you’ll also hear me complaining about the stifling summer temperatures, something called a heat index, and the lack of or the surplus of too much precipitation, coupled with those unpredictable storms that hit when you least expect it. Again my answer is easy. I complain about it because I can. Terri Do I love this area? Absolutely. But just Simon because I’m fond of the place I call home, doesn’t mean you won’t hear me grumble about some of the characteristics that accompany my residency here. I’m entitled. You are too. The Midwest produces some of the most brutal weather around. It’s part of why we live here, and ironically enough, it’s part of why many don’t. It’s as simple as that! ••• How did you celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday? Again, I so appreciate the special program hosted by the First Christian Church and Open Prairie Church of Christ, both of Princeton. What a great way to draw attention and much deserved respect to honor the legacy of this American civil rights leader. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream — one that still serves us well. While we are much closer to realizing that dream than we were when King was among us, in my opinion, we still have a ways to go. In a way it’s unbelievable — almost sad — that we have come so far, yet we still have much to learn. ••• I read with interest the story BCR Senior Staff Writer Donna Barker did on Crossroads High School in Tiskilwa. It’s really quite impressive. I’m also so very pleased the Princeton Elementary School District has worked hard to find another use for Reagan Middle School. The whole situations seems like a win/win situation for everyone. Hats off to all the parties involved! ••• Did any of you see the full moon last week? It was really stunning. There’s something about a full moon — especially on a cold winter’s night — that soothes my soul, while it asks me to stare deeply into this beautiful yellow ball suspended in our sky. I could stare for hours, but I get too cold. But a full moon should be witnessed outside — one on one with the moon is what I say. Seeing it from inside the house doesn’t have the same effect. ••• Thought for the day: “Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.” Henri Frederic Amiel. Thought for tomorrow: “The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.” Carl Sandburg. ••• Just a reminder: All Letters to the Editor must be signed, include your town of residence and a telephone number. We will publish your name and your hometown. We will not publish your telephone number, but we will call you to verify you are the author of the letter. ••• I heard of someone who was complaining about a few aspects of the newspaper, so I called them up. We had the best conversation, and I think we both hung up feeling better. I just wish the complaints had landed on my ears first, rather than with others who really can’t do anything about those concerns. If you have a question, concern, complaint, please give me a call. I can’t promise I can fix your concern, but I will listen and will do my best to rectify a situation, if it’s possible. That’s only fair. ••• The days are staying a bit longer. Yee-ha! Have a great week. Please try to be gentle with others, and equally important ... be gentle with yourself. And remember ... you are important to me and the BCR.

On the street

The Illinois gubernatorial candidates are talking about whether the minimum wage should be raised. What do you think?

“I feel minimum wage should be raised due to the strenuous jobs people do and the hours they put in. The cost of living is going up.” Jackie Massa, Princeton

“I think that they should raise the minimum wage because of the cost of living. Your bills are more than the pay.” Cathy King, Princeton

“With transportation, food, bills, etc. I think minimum wage should be raised. Minimum wage currently isn’t enough to raise a family.” Caterine Celada, Princeton

“In today’s economy I understand cost of living is higher but I do think raising the minimum wage would have a negative affect on small businesses.” Abbie Cochran, Princeton

“I think that if they raise minimum wage, it will be devastating to small businesses.” Jamie Bickett, Princeton

Missing The Smile ... Shop The Smile Shop. I don’t know how many people even know what I’m referring to when I say that name, but just look at the middle word, and it pretty much sums up everything a person needs to know about the place: My hometown dentist. Ironically enough, though, I’m almost positive that the majority of people give a groan when they think about taking a visit to the dentist. I wish I could sympathize with them, but I guess I must be brainwashed after all these years by going to The Smile Shop on Main Street in Wyanet because … I love going to the dentist! Most people would probably consider me a weirdo for saying this, but I love plopping down in the big dentist chair and getting my teeth messed with and cleaned by the hygienists in the office. The best part about going to The Smile Shop, though, comes at the very end (and I’m not even talking about hearing that I don’t have any cavities, though that is a huge bonus!). After opening and closing my jaws about hundred times and gargling a few mouthfuls of mouthwash, I get to patiently wait in another room for my cousin, Gary, aka Dr. Eckberg. Ever since I was a little child I can remember him strolling into the room with the biggest, most gentle smile I have ever seen. Then, without a doubt, the first words out of his mouth would be,

Danae Ross COMMENTARY “Howdy partner!” Just envisioning that little episode brings a smile to my face. Nothing life-changing ever took place in that room, but each and every time I left with a brightened day and a new outlook. We would exchange our hellos, and then while Dr. Eckberg inspected my teeth, we would chat and joke about school, wishing for summer break, how I need to become a dentist, and sometimes other things in-between. He would always apologize for talking too much or kidding with me, but of course, I didn’t mind. I mean, who could get enough of him? I don’t think I have ever met another person who is more kind-hearted and easy going, and I just about bet you that any other patient of his would say the same. To my disappointment, I went in for the last time a few weeks ago as The Smile Shop has said goodbye to our little town. I’m actually thinking about starting a petition that says we simply can’t allow Dr. Eckberg to retire as it will cause great depression within society, but I’m not sure he would appreciate his short-lived retirement very much.

Though I am sad to see Dr. Eckberg retire, he will forever be an inspiration to me. Like him, I wish to be a worker that people want to come in and see; they get a smile on their face when they remember me or have to deal with me. Jobs can be long and tiresome, and some days not a soul wants to be there, but I can’t ever think of a time when I walked into the dentist and Dr. Eckberg didn’t brighten my day with his playful, kind manner. That is my goal. Each and every day, whether I am delighted or downcast, I want to be a light for other people. I have seen what a simple, caring smile can do for me, so I want to help others in the same way. Wherever my career and life may lead me (and dentistry may still be in the cards!), my goal is to work at uplifting and bringing smiles to anyone who might cross my path just like I have witnessed in my hometown dentist’s office. Somewhere I read and truly believe that “too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Danae Ross of Wyanet is a freshman at Illinois Valley Community College.

Good question, Paula! Cold fronts and warm fronts are something meteorologists – scientists who study the weather – watch to make predictions about the weather.

I’m puzzled, Dr. Cicle. What are cold fronts and warm fronts?

Oh no! A cold wind blew my display about weather fronts all apart! Luckily, I numbered each sentence. Do the math problem on each piece. Then use the answers to put the sentences in order from the smallest number to the largest.

Here’s how meteorologists show a cold front on a map.

Standards Link: Earth Science: Students understand how to read a weather map.

This is how they show a warm front.

The cold front looks like icicles on a string!

Standards Link: Number Sense: Students compute sums and differences, order numbers from least to greatest.

Look at the two weather puzzles. Which town is most likely to have stormy weather? Use the cold front and warm front symbols to help you predict. Standards Link: Earth Science: Students understand that weather can be observed and predicted; different conditions affect different results.

Standards Link: Visual discrimination.

Search through the newspaper for the following numbers: • Numbers divisible by 2 • Numbers divisible by 3 • Numbers divisible by 5 Standards Link: Number Sense: Students know rules of divisibility.

Anne Heaton and Edie Carey will perform Saturday at Princeton Coffeehouse PRINCETON — Anne Heaton and Edie Carey will join their musical talents for a concert at the Princeton Coffeehouse at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The coffeehouse is located at Open Prairie United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion St. in Princeton. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Singer-songwriter and classically trained pianist Anne Heaton has amassed awards and praise from critics, fellow artists and fans with her songs that are by turns “tender, barbed and spiritual” (Washington Post). After writing several songs, she performed her first shows as a singersongwriter during the summer of 1998 at several coffeehouses in New Jersey and New York. In 1999, she made a live tape for fans at shows and in 2001 released her first full length album “Black Notebook.” Soon after its release, she joined forces with a group of New York City’s up-andcoming singer-songwriters including Edie Carey, Teddy Goldstein, and Andrew Kerr to perform

as “Live From New York.” Edie Carey began venturing outside of New York City in 1998 after the release of her debut album, “The Falling Places.” She has played throughout the United States as well as in Canada and the UK. While her first album was a sparsely produced acoustic contemporary folk album, “Call Me Home,” Carey’s follow-up in 2000, was an all-out pop record. Since then, she has released “Come Close,” her 2002 live CD, “When I Was

Made” (2004), “Another Kind of Fire” (2006), “itsgonnabegreat” (2008) (a collaboration with singer-songwriter Rose Cousins), and the latest addition to her growing catalog, “Bring the Sea.” Glide Magazine describes Carey as “a wonderful blend of musical styles and lyric as well as harmonic proficiency.” Heaton and Carey’s appearance at the Princeton Coffeehouse is sponsored by Mimi Cofoid, and Paul and Linda Ernst.

Hot-shooting Devils down Bruins By Dan Dwyer sports@bcrnews.com

SPRING VALLEY — The hot-shooting Hall Red Devils combined to hit nine three-pointers en route to a 64-49 victory over rival St. Bede Friday night during Three Rivers Conference South Division play at Red Devil Gymnasium. Hall led the entire contest until St. Bede junior guard Justin Shaw knocked down the big three-pointer to give the Bruins their first lead of the game. It was short-lived as Hall senior forward Ian Trevier answered 20 seconds later on the very next

possession with one of his six three pointers of the night to tie the game at 34-34 with 4:15 left to play in the third quarter. Hall coach Mike Filippini credits his decision to not call a timeout and let his team play through adversity for the momentum swing late in the third quarter. “I told them that we did not lose our composure. They actually took a three-point lead and Ian came right back down the court and nailed a three, that just stopped them right there. You know we could have done a lot of dumb things, make a dumb play, but we just

PRINCETON — When you’re hot, you’re hot. LaSalle-Peru senior guard Noah Lamboley found Prouty Gym especially to his liking, connecting on six three-pointers on the night en route to a game-high 26 points. Teammate Brady Huebbe added four three-pointers, in scoring 14 points. As a team, the Cavaliers made 13 threes to out shoot the Tigers right out of their gym, 65-46. L-P only attempted 11 twos, hitting 9 of 11, and went 13 of 23 from threes. “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen that much of discrepancy on attempts,” PHS coach Jesse Brandt said. “Besides a couple early on, we contested most of them. The Huebbe kid had a couple early that we didn’t get out quick enough.” Lamboley proved to be in range the moment he got off the bus, hitting his threes from well beyond the arc, some behind the volleyball court line. He had one trey in the first quarter and four in the second in racking up 17 first-half points to lead the Cavs to a 42-26 halftime lead. “It reminded me a couple years ago here when (Rock Falls’ Jacob) Junis where he had like 30 points first half,” Brandt said, Huebbe added three in the first half and Eric Milaicki had two for the Cavaliers. The Tigers (3-14) got off to a good start, finishing the first quarter on an 8-0 run to take a 22-16 lead. J.J. Vaccaro hit a three-pointer and Garrett Duffin followed with a two to give the Tigers a 17-16 lead. Vaccaro drove right over the top of the L-P defense for a layup and added the one on a foul with 3.4 seconds left. Zach Andersen stole the L-P inbounds and passed to Duffin, who scored at the buzzer to make it 22-16. In the second quarter, the Tigers couldn’t buy a basket. After making good on 8 of 10 shots in the first quarter, they went 0-13 from the field in the second, scoring

L-P then dialed up the long ball, connecting on six three-pointers to regain control of the game turning a six-point deficit into a 16-point halftime lead. The Cavs scored the first 13 points of the second quarter and outscored the Tigers 26-4 by quarter’s end. The Cavs (7-8) led by as much as 20 points in the fourth quarter

at 61-41. “At the clip they were shooting at, there’s not a whole lot you can do,” Brandt said. “I told the kids I’m not happy we lost, but at least I thought we got beat tonight. We didn’t lose the game. We got beat. “Some of the games this week, I thought we were a major contributor in the loss more than we were tonight. Their shooting and our lack of shooting was just too much to overcome.”

Storm cruises past Riverdale By Brent Jamison sports@bcrnews.com

MANLIUS — The Bureau Valley Storm took care of business at home Friday night, using a 24-point second quarter to cruise to a 69-45 win over Riverdale, keeping them undefeated in the Three Rivers North division. Tommy Johnston had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Parker Neuhalfen chipped in 17 points and Ryan Young added 10 points off the bench to lead the Storm to their fifth straight victory. “It’s nice to come out and

get a win tonight on our home floor,” Storm coach Jason Marquis said. “The kids played hard. I thought our effort was pretty good throughout. Our defense was pretty good. Our rebounding was OK. We have a ways to go to get better and reach our goals but we took a step tonight.” Riverdale (5-11, 1-4) was dealt a tough blow on Tuesday night at Morrison when they lost two starters – 6-5 center Cole Solomon and sophomore point guard Josh Lohman – to what coach Jason Hendrix believes

could be season ending injuries. The duo accounted for over half of the team’s offensive production. Hendrix felt missing those two key players started to show in the second quarter where his team couldn’t keep up with the Storm (14-7, 5-0). After Neuhalfen hit a three to start the second, igniting an 11-2 run and breaking an 11 all tie, BV never trailed the rest of the way. “We’ve only been really playing seven guys and two of those guys are down,” noted Hendrix. “It was an

I was going to call a timeout but then I just thought let them play because there’s still a lot of game left, that was huge for us.” Hall used the momentum from Trevier’s huge basket to steadily add to their lead for the remainder of the game. The Red Devils knocked down 5 of their 9 three-pointers during an excellent display of shooting during the third quarter as Trevier sank four from downtown and junior guard A.J. Gaeta added the fifth threepointer. “We went a long time without scoring, I think part of it was we had to concentrate on defense so much that when we got the ball and tried to score six points in one possession, we took some bad shots in the first half, bad threes,” St. Bede coach Mike Kilmartin said.

onds of the third and fourth quarters. “That was a great second half we shot lights out. I mean we have the capability to shoot like that. Ian and A.J. are good shooters and you know Miguel isn’t a bad three-point shooter either,” Filippini said. Senior guard Miguel Villarreal got the offense going in the first half as St. Bede had trouble keeping the shifty Villarreal away from the basket as he found wideopen lanes to drive to the hoop and draw fouls. “Miguel is our finisher, that’s why they came out in a triangle and two. He’s one of the best players on the team. That kid gets to the basket and I don’t know how in the heck he makes some of those layups but he made them all tonight it seemed like,” Filippini said. St. Bede was forced to abandon their defensive gameplan as the Red Devils continually knocked down deep shots. “We got behind of course, and then we had to get in a defense that we don’t want to play. Then they hit a couple threes, and we’re kind of at a disadvantage,” Kilmartin said. “I always tell the kids the best way to get a team out of a zone is to make threes and we
