member Tom Dobrich said the Finance Committee itself has discussed the issue quite a bit and sees the positives of having a county administrator to help run the county. His recommendation would be to hire a search firm to look for an administrator, Dobrich said.

After further discussion, the board approved a motion by Dobrich to go ahead and hire a firm to handle the search for an administrator. The motion was approved on voice vote, though not a unanimous one.

Princeton to host first Cystic Fibrosis Walk By Goldie Currie

PRINCETON — Princeton’s first ever Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Walk is being planned for Saturday, June 28. The event is being brought to the area by Princeton resident Cheriz Kunkel, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) when she was just a few weeks old. The disease is a genetic one that can affect any number of organs, but primarily affects the lungs. Today, at the age of 29, Kunkel has only 50 percent lung function. Each day, she is forced to do nine breathing treatments and take more than 50 pills to maintain her current lung function. Kunkel is one of many local people who travel to other CF Walks around the state to raise awareness and funds to assist with research in the disease. This year, however, she thought, why not bring a walk to the Princeton area? “We are hoping to make Princeton an annual walk site,” she said. “Great Strides is the CF Foundation’s largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to raise funds for CF research and drug development.” According to Kunkel, there are crucial medicines currently being researched that could help people with CF.

Local pork producers are keeping a lookout for a new virus that’s creating great harm to the swine industry. It’s known as PEDV (Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus). The disease causes the animals to have high fever and severe diarrhea. While the warmer weather has slowed down the spreading, there are still new cases popping up. Thus far, the virus has posed no danger to humans or other animals.

Virus causes concern among farmers By Goldie Currie

PRINCETON — There’s a relatively new virus that’s creating devastating effects and has forced area pork producers to prepare action plans in case it reaches their farm. It’s known as the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV), and it’s wiping out every 14 day old or younger piglet it reaches. PEDV is a coronavirus that infects the cells that line the small

intestine of a pig, causing severe diarrhea and dehydration. The virus can kill young piglets within five days of contracting it. The effects of the virus have not yet posed a threat to humans or other animals, and is known solely to be a swine virus. According to Dr. Lynn Keller of Wyoming, Ill., who specializes in swine studies, there are three strings of the virus. The first was witnessed in Europe in the 1970s and eventually disappeared. It then resurfaced in China a number of years ago and is still a

common virus there today. The virus in China is very similar to the PEDV virus, Keller said. Many believe the PEDV was brought into the U.S. from China, but the how and when are still being debated. The PEDV first appeared in the U.S. about a year ago. Keller reported most cases of the virus coming from areas that have large hog confinements, like in southern Minnesota, Iowa and western Illinois. A Polo pork producer, Brian Duncan, recently reported

to the Sauk Valley News that he had contracted the virus in March. He estimated to have lost between 1,000 and 1,200 piglets. While he is known to wean about 300 piglets a week, he was forced to go one month without weaning any little piglets. Older pigs fare better against the virus. When it hits older pigs, it’s more like a mild flu. With proper management, operations can return to normal in about four weeks.

Celebrating 150 years Wiggins brothers hope to reach 200 By Donna Barker

PRINCETON — The Wiggins farm of rural Princeton has joined an elite of group of 15 other Bureau County farms to be designated as Sesquicentennial Farms by the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Brothers Bill and Tom Wiggins own the farm, located about mile from Princeton on Route 26. Their ancestors bought the original 128-acre farm in 1856, at a cost of $36 an acre. The farm has been in the Wiggins name ever since, Bill said. To qualify for Sesquicentennial Farm status, an agricultural property must have been owned by the same family of descendants for at least 150 years. Statewide, more than 600 Illinois farms have been named Sesquicentennial Farms since the program was created in 2001.

On Tuesday, Bill, who lives on the family farm, and Tom, who lives in Monticello, talked about the significance of having reached the Sesquicentennial Farm milestone. “We are very proud of being Sesquicentennial. It’s honoring our heritage. We have become owners through gifts from our ancestors and I look forward to maintaining the farm and passing it on to my children,” Tom said. “How many other businesses can you say that have had the same family owners for 150 years?” Bill agreed with his brother’s sentiments. “When someone asks me where I farm, I tell them where we are located and then I tell them it’s a Sesquicentennial farm. I’m as pleased as punch,” Bill said. “The farm has been in the Wiggins name since 1856 and that’s pretty nice.” The brothers said they have a lot of good memories growing up on the farm. They remember hearing the story how

Information from Illinois Department of Agriculture there was once a horse racing track on the northwest corner of the farm. They remember how their dad would drive cattle down the road from their place to their other property a couple miles away, property which their dad sold in the 1970s to become the site of the Bureau Valley Country Club.

Their parents, Charles T. and Ruth K. Wiggins, kept the boys busy, Tom and Bill agreed. There was always chores to do, like taking care of the livestock and chickens. There was hay bailing and shelling corn. The boys were busy with 4-H club, summer ball leagues, and, in high school, Future Farmers of

America at Princeton High School. Growing up on a farm, you never said there was nothing to do, or your parents would find something, Tom said with a smile. Their dad kept the livestock until the 1970s and the farm has grown seed corn for Pioneer Research for nearly 70 years, Bill said.

The brothers are joint owners and partners now on the farm now. Bill has worked on the farm, at least part-time, for years, before coming back years ago to work on the farm full-time. Though not a farmer himself, Tom has worked in the agriculture field, retiring after 30 years in professional farm management and farm real estate sales. Looking to the future, Tom said the family farm will be handed down with pride to the next generation of Wiggins. Though none of the younger generation plan to farm the land themselves, they will inherit the land, Tom said. “I hope the farm will stay in the family. I’m instilling that legacy in my children and my kids respect that,” Tom said. Bill, too, is hopeful the farm he calls home will stay in the Wiggins family for years to come. “We’re shooting for 200 years,” he said. Comment on this story at

“In fact, right now a drug that could help lessen the severity of my CF is currently in Phase 3 of the clinical trials,” she said. “It’s because of donations and awareness raised from these Great Strides walks that bring us closer to a cure everyday.” This event will not only bring hope for Kunkel, but also for future generations. “Growing up I watched all but one of my childhood friends pass away from this disease. It robbed some amazing kids of this lives,” she said. “All my life, the community of Princeton has been understanding, never judged me, never treated me different ... The community’s support has been amazing.” While CF has it’s rough days, Kunkel is one person who doesn’t let the tough times get to her. In fact, she has embraced the disease. She said in college, her friends encouraged her to do stand up comedy about her CF and start her blog, which can be found at www. The site has been crafted into her own space to update readers on her and the experiences she’s endeavored over the years. Also on the blog are briefs about her medical history, daily life and explanations behind some of the treatments she has to do to maintain her health. On her blog page, she writes: “Why would I ever wish I wasn’t born with CF when I got to witness life changing stories everyday. Stories of love, hope and inspiration. I saw real struggles and obstacles. I saw people persevere and love life to the fullest.” “I owe a lot of my character and personality to my stays in the hospital. Don’t get me wrong, the fact I haven’t been in one since 2008 and haven’t been on IV meds since 2012 doesn’t mean I want to stop my upward trend in health,” she writes.” It just means I’m thank-

It has made me tougher, more independent and mostly, more loving. For once, I stop to say thank you, CF.” If this year’s walk is a success, Kunkel said the Great Strides Organization will be adding Princeton to the list of annual walk sites. “This would be a dream come true, not only for me, but everyone I know in the community who has CF or knows someone with CF,” she said. Interested participants can register online or make a donation to the organization at http:// Princeton. For those who can’t walk, but still want to fund raise, they may do so as a virtual walker or make a donation to anyone on the local Princeton Team online. Kunkel is currently accepting donations to help pay for the walk’s costs. She is also in search of volunteers to run games, crafts, face painting and more on the day of the event.

In appreciation

From Page 1 In other business, Buildings and Grounds Committee Chairman Kristi Warren gave an update on the extensive radio communication upgrade project, which is nearing completion and should be wrapped up within the next month. She also reported money has been put into the sheriff’s department budget to build a padded cell at the county jail, at a cost of $15,755, because of the suicidal and mental issues of some inmates. On Thursday, Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said the padded cell has been completed and has been approved. The padded cell is the jail’s previously existing isolation cell, where homicidal or suicidal people are taken, or those inmates who fail to adapt to jail life for a variety of reasons. The padded cell provides another level of protection, the sheriff said. Because the state and federal governments have failed to appropriate adequate mental health funding, the problem of mental health is going to continue to be an agonizing problem for a long time, including for county jails, Thompson said. The jails have become a catch-all facility for society, he said. As he sees it, the county jail shouldn’t be responsible for people with mental health problems, but the jail often gets those people by default, Thompson said. These people are often incapable of functioning rationally, they may create some kind of disturbance, then someone calls the police on them, and they are brought to the jail until the courts release them. Without getting mental health services for these people, the cycle can begin again, he said. Comment on this story at

PEDV From Page 1 Keller said the spreading of the virus is being blamed on the trucking of pig and feed transport. Minuscule amounts of the virus picked up from tires have the potential to spread throughout a confinement. Many farmers have taken extra biosecurity protocols, such as disinfecting truck tires and making truck drivers wear plastic, disposable gloves. According to Keller, scientist are not yet having success with a vaccine to prevent PEDV. He believes it could be two

years before a reliable vaccine is developed. Steve Cowser, a Bradford pork producer, reported that his farm has so far been able to escape PEDV. However, his farm has established an action plan and they are being very diligent in following the high biosecurity protocols. One effect that Cowser has witnessed, however, is the record high pork prices. He said on March 18, the June Hog futures peaked at the price of $1.33 a pound. He said when he asked his broker what was influencing the marker he learned there was a perceived idea that

Steve Cowser there would be a shortage of pork due to PEDV. Therefore, fund managers were buying hog futures to profit from the shortage, thinking that the price would rise due

to the perceived shortage. “My thoughts are that while I like to make a profit, I do not like the extreme prices that we are seeing now. I think most pork producers would

WALNUT — Mildred M. Mattes, 99, of Walnut died Thursday, May 15, 2014, at Walnut Manor Nursing Home in Walnut. Mildred was born May 1, 1915, in Walnut, the daughter of Glenn and Lydia (Kruse) Peach. She was united in marriage to Erwin Mattes on June 12, 1937, in Clinton, Ill. He preceded her in death on Aug. 14, 1966.

Bureau County Board PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board conducted the following business at its May 13 meeting at the Bureau County Courthouse in Princeton: • Approved salary increases for the positions of county clerk, county treasurer, circuit clerk and sheriff, as presented by Fees and Salaries Committee Chairman Marshann Entwhistle. The raises will be 3.5 percent in each of the 2015 and 2016 fiscal years, followed by a 3.0 percent increase in each of the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years. The positions are elected positions for four-year terms. • Re-appointed Robert Russell of Princeton, Gene Englehart of Princeton and Stanley Gingrich of Sheffield to the Bureau County Metropolitan Exposition Auditorium and Office Building Board. • Re-appointed Eldon Ross and Janice Becker as trustees for the Greenfield Cemetery Association; Dan Whitlock as a commissioner to the Bureau County Housing Authority Board; and Terry Linning as a trustee to the Ladd Fire Protection District. • Re-appointed Richard Koch as a trustee to the Arlington Fire Protection District; and Dennis Miscevic and Bill Lane to the Board of Review. • Heard from BuEComm director Diana Stiles who asked board members to contact their legislators in opposition of Senate Bill 2674 which proposes taking some of E 9-1-1 funding and giving it to the Poison Control fund.

Badges of honor Every year, the newspaper publishes its annual section featuring high school graduates. I find myself studying the faces of these young men and women. I can’t help but think of all the hopes and dreams each one of those photographs holds. And so it was one day this week as I was getting ready for work, when those youthful faces returned to my mind. Standing before the mirror, I Terri couldn’t help but examine my own notSimon so-youthful face; an image of my own senior photo returning. The differences? Then: A young girl with smooth, peaches and cream skin; eyes that were bright that could envision hopes and dreams; healthy and shiny hair that held traces of a summer sun; a smile — genuine and unrehearsed; an 18-year-old young lady who had the world by the tail. Now: Wrinkles; well-defined crow’s feet which I prefer to call laugh lines; a few furrows on my forehead; eyes that look tired; hair that has that summer sun applied; a smile — still genuine but seen a lot less frequently ... Other things that looked back at me: Expressions that are often worried, concerned, stressed. And the scar — that ugly scar on my neck that cancer put there — the scar that ultimately saved my life. More than 30 years separate those two images, and for a moment, I was taken back by the changes. For a moment, my heart hurt, ached for what was and the precious dreams that were never realized. The memories almost overtook me. But wait a minute ... I can do one of two things: Begin that exhausting journey down Memory Lane ... or I can decide to remain in the present and take a good hard look at the reflection before me. I decide on the latter, and this is who I see ... OK, there are some wrinkles. Yes, I’ve thought about a little nip and tuck, but I’ve earned every one of those wrinkles. Besides, they match the crow’s feet very well — whether they came from squinting in the sun, frowning at this computer screen, or laughing in the literal face of it all. The furrows on my forehead? They live there in the disbelief that created them. My eyes look tired because, quite frankly, they are. And the hair? Well, let’s just say the days of having the sun bleach out my hair while tanning my skin are long gone. My sun-streaked hair now lives in a bottle at the salon with Ms. Clare. And then there are the expressions that live in the mirror-reflected image. Of course I’m worried, stressed out, concerned. I’m an adult now, and those seem to be the prerequisites. And then there’s the scar; the scar that made me grow up really quickly. The scar that made everything else pale in comparison. The scar I see that still can bring tears to my eyes — not because of the actual scar but because of what it represents. You know, my friends, there are days when I would give about anything to return to those senior picture days — a place in time when the worries and woes of the world were few. But on the other hand, I study my image in the mirror today, and while I can see about a bazillion things I’d like to improve, I’m fairly content to wear those wrinkles, those crow’s feet, those furrows ... even that dreadful yet beloved scar. You see, I’ve earned them all. They are my badges of honor. Life has a way of changing us, both inside and out. While the image that stares back at me doesn’t hold the youthful qualities of yesteryear, I believe what lives inside is far more appealing than what I had to offer 30-some years ago. May today’s graduates relish each moment, embrace each day. And as they look toward the future, may they realize that what lives inside them is really all that counts. The wrinkles, the furrows, even the scars are just the evidence of a life well-lived. And my words to this year’s Class of 2014: May you wear your badges of honor proudly.

Richard Widmark: A Princeton legend John Ford and ‘Cheyenne Autumn’ By Bartlett Lee Kassabaum Special to the BCR

If I knew then what I know now, this one might have been a lot easier. These words are swimming in my head as I write this story on Richard Widmark. I was stationed for a few years at Ft. Monmouth, N.J., at Eatontown, in the U.S. Army. This was 1968 to 1971. On several occasions I made trips to Bridgeport, Conn., with an Army buddy whose home was there. It did not take me long to find out how close all destinations are when in the northeast part of our country. I traveled all over the New England states and up and down most of the East Coast. Roxbury, Conn., is less than an hour away from Bridgeport. Widmark had friends in this part of the state and liked the area. The Widmark family bought their almost nine-acre country farm in Roxbury in the mid-1960s. They had homes on both coasts now. The house, built in 1917, was a sprawling, shake shingle, 2,500-square-foot rustic Litchfield home, set in a spacious level open meadow, surrounded by mature gardens. The property also included a one-room schoolhouse on an additional four acres that Widmark and his daughter Anne eventually donated in 1997 to the Roxbury Land Trust in memory of his late wife, Jean Widmark, who died that same year. This is the Widmark Preserve. They purchased and donated another 22 acres later on in 2004. I missed this little bit of “Eden” back then, though I’ve seen the property now on the Internet. I was a different person then, with other priorities, so I didn’t know how close I was to giving my own future something tangible to look back on. The 8.75-acre farm sold for $1,200,000 in 2012. Like I said, this might have been a lot easier. The genesis for the movie “Cheyenne Autumn” was research Widmark had done in the early 1960s at Yale University (also less than an hour from Roxbury, in New Haven) into the suffering of the Cheyenne Indians. Widmark was a very curious well-read person with an insatiable appetite for news and the hopeful betterment of his fellow man. He showed his work to John Ford, and two years later, Ford sent Widmark a finished screenplay. Ford wanted to do another picture with Widmark after directing him in “Two Rode Together” (1961).  Ford made “Cheyenne Autumn” in 1964 starring Widmark, Carroll Baker, and a cast that just couldn’t get much better. Karl Malden, Edward G. Robinson, James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy, Victor Jory, Ricardo Montalban, Gilbert Roland, Harry Carey Jr., Ken Curtis, Ben Johnson, Sal Mineo, Deloris del Rio, John Carradine, Mike Mazurki, Patrick Wayne, John Qualen, and the amazing Mae Marsh, along with the Ford Company stock players bring this tale to life. I actually met one of the cast, Karl Malden, on the other coast in San Diego, Calif. Malden and Widmark were good friends since when they were both in radio in the late ‘30s and early ‘40s. Malden and Widmark made six movies together. In the summer of 1976, my older brother and I made a trek to visit another brother who was living on Coronado Island off the coast of San Diego. We took a southern route out and came back through the northern part of the country. We took in San Diego’s Sea World one day and had these girls diving for pearls for us.

Kathy Costerisan COMMENTARY Please note the changes to the entry due dates for fine arts. There’s a week full of fun planned for the Bureau County Fair starting on Wednesday, Aug. 20. That night in the grandstand will be the antique tractor pull. Be sure to stop and watch all of the daily free entertainment. This year Johnny Rockett and Galaxy Girl will dazzle and thrill audiences with the Cybertrons sky cycle towering over 40 feet in the air. Johnny Rockett continually drives his motorcycle around the disk keeping Galaxy Girl in constant motion around the track as she performs on the aerial trapeze attached to the motorcycle. Magic Matt’s Family Fun show will have several shows scheduled each day with balloon artistry and sleight of hand tricks. There will be free musical entertainment in the hospitality tent every day of the fair, with the talent show there on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. The chain saw carver will be creating beautiful sculptures out of logs daily. Rodeo fans will enjoy bull riding presented by Latting Rodeo on Friday, Aug. 22. It has been 10 years since bulls and cowboys hit the dirt during the fair. This year’s event is sanctioned by the Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association (SEBRA) and it’s going to have some outstanding bucking action. Saturday is always a fun day to go to the fair. The horse speed show will be running all day long in McCutchan Arena. Their contestants will compete

The kids will be able to participate in the stick horse barrel race; chicken herding; greased pig catching contest and the popular mutton bustin’. During the mutton bustin’, the kids come out of the rodeo chute hugging the neck of a sheep and riding for as long as they can.

Making quick work By Jeff Schlesinger

TISKILWA — The Princeton Tigresses made quick work of the DePue Little Giants in the semifinal game at the Tiskilwa soccer pitch on Wednesday night advancing to the regional final on Friday. The win was not unexpected, but the Tigresses came out and attacked early and often as they cruised to a 15-0 victory. Senior forward Michelle Kelly, as she has done often this year, got the scoring started with an unassisted goal just into the fourth minute of the game. Sophomore Eliza Young followed that up with a “three minute hat trick,” scoring in the sixth minute (assist by Keyana Altizer), eighth minute (assist Elizabeth Stites) and ninth minute (assist Sarah Murray). “I haven’t scored that quickly since PYSL,” Young said of her Princeton Youth Soccer League days. “I was able to manipulate the ball around the defenders and there were a lot of open lanes. Liz (Stites) really had a nice cross.” The rout was on at that point with the Tigresses pouring in nine more goals before the conclusion of the half, includ-

ing consecutive goals by freshman Michaela Mall, and juniors Kim Schlesinger and Taylor Tiemann. The second half found the Tigresses playing possession, limiting themselves to two goals. The final goal of the game was scored by senior Lindsay Hartwig. The back-up goalie for the last three seasons, Hartwig has not had many opportunities to see game action. “It was really fun,” said Hartwig. “From the beginning of the second half, we were trying to get everyone a goal who hadn’t had a goal. It was fun because people were cheering for me from the benches and everyone was feeding me.”

Princeton junior Taylor Tieman puts a foot into one, scoring one of her two goals in Princeton’s 15-0 win over DePue in Wednesday’s regional semifinals. The Tigresses met Alleman in Friday’s finals.

MANLIUS — Everything went according to the game plan for Bureau Valley’s Lindsey Hoffert. She won the long jump competition and anchored three Storm relays to statequalifying runs in Thursday’s Bureau Valley 1A Sectional Track and Field Meet under the turbine and rain-soaked skies. They will all go to Charleston along with teammate Sydney Lebahn (discus), Hall’s Maddi Quinn (pole vault) and Amboy/LaMoille’s Erika Zimmerlein (200), Laura Rieker (high jump) and Megan Grady (3200). “I was always hoping for four and we’ve been working hard to get four of them down there, our relays especially. I can’t even say how good it feels,” said Hoffert, who received a bear hug from her brother, Logan, a past BV state qualifier, after the completion of her 4x400 anchor. The Storm placed second in the 4x200 (1:50.17) with freshman Marissa Mungia and Tianna Kennedy, joining Hoffert and senior Katelyn Johnson and second in the 4x400 (4:11.89) with Helena Osk Arnadottir, a foreign exchange student from Iceland, freshman Sabrina Webb, Kennedy and Hoffert. BV qualified on time in the 4x100 relay with a time of 51.83 on the legs of junior Haley DeVoss, Kennedy, Mungia and Hoffert. It was all about team effort, said Hoffert, noting it’s an honor to anchor all the relays and it’s by design because “I’m bad at handing off. “We’ve worked hard on handoffs and handoffs and handoffs. Just working together an motivating each other. Keeping our heads in it and getting handoffs were key. It worked,” said Hoffert. “I’m so extremely proud of our freshmen, especially, for just keeping their heads in it. So proud of all our relays, especially in this weather, and our entire team and everyone

Hall, A/W combine for 35 strikeouts in 11 innings By Kevin Hieronymus

Miguel Villareal Stole home for winning run in 11th

Anyone keeping track of strikeouts at Wednesday’s baseball game at Annawan would have ran out of the letter Ks after 11 innings of play. Between them, four pitchers for Hall and Annawan/ Wethersfield combined for

35 strikeouts. A/W starter Tom Jenkins struck out 20 alone over 10 innings in a non-decision. Hall starter Julian Barroso had seven Ks over 6.2 innings and winning pitcher A.J. Gaeta fanned six in 3.1 innings of relief. Hall coach Tom Keegan said it’s the first time he’s every been a part of something like that.

“Their coach said Jenkins has put up some unbelievable numbers (this year). He’s got good velocity with good movement,” he said. Jenkins, a left-hander, has full command of four pitches, A/W coach Jeff Parsons said, including an impressive heater, which has been clocked at 90 miles per hour. On the year, Jen-

kins has fanned 116 batters in 60 innings, including an 18-strikeout effort in 10 innings against West Prairie. He sports a 0.70 ERA. “He is the kid that pitched us to the Sweet Sixteen in 2A,” Parsons said. Jenkins has a full scholarship offer to Parkland in Champaign and coach Dave Garcia.

After all the strikeouts, the Red Devils (19-4) pushed across the winning-run in the top of the 11th on a steal of home by Miguel Villareal to take the game 2-1. He waited for the catcher to throw to the pitcher and beat the return throw to the plate. Taggart Venegas and

State after missing out last year. “Laura has really been working hard on her technique this year, and it has improved her consistency as well as her confidence. It is always a good feeling to see your seniors come through in the clutch,” he said. The sophomore Zimmerlein came out for track for the first time this year and has taken to the sprints fast. She beat out Newman’s Mary Jensen (27.64) with a top time of 27.49. Zimmerlein’s night, however, ended on a sour note. She took part in the Lady Clippers’ 4x100 relay that was initially ruled to have been disqualified for running out of a lane. It was later determined there was no infraction, but the damage had been as Pankhurst was told to slow down on the final leg. They still placed third with a time of 1:52.8. After much discussion, Halberg was able to get his relay crew an extra run by themselves at the conclusion of the meet, although he didn’t think it was the fairest of moves, considering they had to run alone in the rain. Two of Halberg’s runners, Zimmerlein and Katelyn Pankhurst, had already run six events in the cold and rainy conditions. Halberg scratched the Lady Clippers in the final event leading up to their rerun, the 1600 relay. When it was all said and done, the Lady Clippers, including Hannah Grady and Kaitlyn Boers, turned in a 1:53 running alone in the rain, which had just started to become more substantial. “I will give my girls credit. I left the decision to run up to them, and they ran their hearts out. They will all be returning next year, and we will be running with a big chip on our shoulder, “We didn’t get the time we wanted, but as a team, we won in our mind,” Zimmerlein said. When asked about winning the 200, Zimmerlein, said, it’s OK, “but I’d rather take my team with me.” Amboy freshman Megan Grady finished second in the 3200 (11:45.28). Putnam County’s Paige Griffith also qualified with a second-place time of 48.24 in the 300 hurdles. • Notes: Annawan/Wethersfield (108) beat Three Rivers Conference champ Erie/Prophetstown (81) for the team championship. Henry (70) was third, BV (60) fourth, Hall (51) fifth and Amboy/ LaMoille (48) sixth. … The 1A prelims will be held Thursday at O’Brien Stadium on the campus of Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

who made it.” BV coach Dale Donner said it was great to see three relays qualify and run a season’s best in the 4x100. “In the 4x200 we ran a real strong race, and by then the temp had started to drop and I was starting to worry about times, but not only did we finish second, but we also ran qualifying time,” he said. “In the 4x400, we had Helena and Sabrina run their best times of the year.” In the long jump, Hoffert said she just wanted to take care of business in the prelims, landing a state qualifier of 16-10 1/2. Once she did that, she skipped the finals, not wanting to risk running through the puddles in the runway. “I wanted to get a good jump early so that maybe I wouldn’t have to jump finals, and I did so I wouldn’t waste my legs,” she said. “I was pushing to get qualifying and that’s what I did, now I just got to work more to get 17s.” The Storm’s Lebahn had a winning throw of 113-5 in the discus, nearly 10 feet farther than runnerup Ashten Sherman of Riverdale. “Sydney really stepped up in the disc,” BV coach Dale Donner said. “In the weather we had, to watch her navigate the discus ring was very impressive. She did not let the rain influence her footwork at all.” It was a good news, bad news kind of night for Hall’s Quinn. She took first place in the pole vault, but clipped a hurdle in the 100s and failed to qualify. “I’m really glad I could make it in pole vault, because that was one of my goals definitely this year. Hurdles, I’m actually really disappointed. I did hit a hurdle really hard, but that’s just my goal for next year, because I have made qualifying. It happens. The weather’s really bad, but I’m glad I could make it in the pole vault.” The petite freshman cleared 9-3 to win the pole vault, or nearly than twice her own height. She took the qualifying mark and stopped with a first-place finish. She admitted when the bar gets to a certain height, “it is a little frightening.” While she didn’t match her season best and qualifying mark of 5-2, Rieker soared to 5-0 to tie for second place with Kewanee’s Reashonda Chandler, both advancing to State. Hall’s Jenna Lusietto also cleared 5-0, but took fourth on the tie-breaker for misses. A/L coach Bob Halberg was happy to see Rieker return to

Hall coach Tom Keegan said his top-seeded Red Devils just need to get “guys on” and put all three facets together - pitching, defense and offense - “and if you don’t you’re going home.” … PHS coach Tim Taylor likes his team’s chances, believing they have as good as shot as anyone. “Quiet frankly we played Hall to extra innings to a one-run game and they’re the number one seed. We’ve got teams that we potentially will play in the second game and I think we can play with anyone in our region. I’m not going down without a fight until the end. I’ve got five seniors that want to keep playing and I’ve got a bunch of underclassmen that want to support and just go win games.” Hall coach Tom Keegan says: “I know it’s an old cliché’ and this is coach talk and all that stuff but anyone can win it, seriously, when you look at St. Bede they’re playing really well right now, Princeton, they’re very good and Prophetstown can put it all together too so it’s going to be an interesting week and you better show up ready to play or because if you’re not ready you’re going home.” BCR pick: Hall over Princeton.

Hartwig has rarely played the field since she entered high school and didn’t even do so that much in her final years for the park district. The goal was a fitting reward for someone whose contributions to the team have gone unnoticed by the public for so long. “It’s not necessarily a new experience,” said Hartwig, “but it’s newish.” Though the Tigresses were flying high after this one, their next challenge is the one they’ve been anticipating – a regional final matchup against Rock Island Alleman, the team which eliminated them last year and beat them 6-1 earlier this year.

Next: Winner goes to Granville Sectional to face Grant Park Regional winner at 4:30 p.m. May 28.

For results of that match, visit and Tuesday’s BCR. One of their main challenges against Alleman was to push the ball and score. Schlesinger, who scored her two goals within about 50 seconds, says the team had guarded confidence going into the championship. “The 4-3-3 lineup – 3 forwards plus an attacking center mid – helps (the scoring) a lot,” she said. “It creates extra space for Eliza and Michelle and Keyanna to run on (goal) and for us to run in on crosses and stuff.” Not only will the Tigresses need to score against Alleman, they will need to effectively possess the ball, keeping it away from the speedy and talented forwards and outside midfielders of the Pioneers. “Coach Gray was saying that it

is the same movements and same possessions (as we did in the second half),” Schlesinger said, “just a lot faster against a better team. So if we can think about it that way we can pick up the pace against Alleman. “We all really want to beat Alleman,” she added. “We’ve come a long way. We feel as if it’s possible. It depends on how we feel on Friday and how we come out.” For coach Ed Young, it is Friday’s match that will define the entire season. “I feel like we have a tough challenge in front of us,” he said, “but we have been preparing for this game all year. Our whole season has been preparing to get to this match and to play Alleman the best that our system allows us to.” Comment on this story at www.

SPRINGFIELD — Fifty years ago, Illinois began keeping boat accident statistics, and Illinois Department of Natural Resources Director Marc Miller is asking the public to help make the 2014 boating season one to remember, for being the safest since accident statistics first were recorded in 1964. The IDNR is also launching a radio ad campaign throughout the state in both English and Spanish designed to remind everyone to “Wear It, Always Wear Your Life Jacket!” — the theme for National Safe Boating Week, which runs from May 17-23. While a variety of factors contribute to the fluctuation in the number of boating accidents, including weather and water levels, public education and preparedness remains top reasons why accidents and fatalities have dropped significantly on Illinois waters since the mid-1990s. “We have come a long way in 50 years in improv-

ing safety with boating education and tougher laws, but we can still do better. Take a boating safety class, always wear your life jacket, and never drink before or while operating a boat,” said IDNR Director Miller. “With a little preparation and common sense, together we can make this boating season the safest in 50 years.” In 2001, Illinois saw the fewest boating fatalities in recorded history with eight. In 2013, 50 people were injured and 14 people lost their lives as a result of 65 reported boating accidents on Illinois waters. Illinois has seen the number of fatalities drop from an average of 46 per year in the 1960s to 19 per year since 2000. Much of the drop in the number of fatalities can be attributed to tougher laws and the availability of safety education classes. On Friday, Illinois Conservation Police (CPOs) were at locations throughout the state performing courtesy boat inspections

to help prepare boat owners for the 2014 season. CPOs did not write tickets during the free safety checks on that day, but went through a safety checklist that included working life jackets, fire extinguishers, navigation lights and battery covers. Officers were also be available to answer any questions about boat registrations and titles or water usage stamps. “Our job is to help people stay safe, and letting them know if their boat is in compliance and working properly without fear of a fine or ticket is a great way to start off the boating season,” said Illinois Conservation Police Chief Rafael Gutierrez. State law requires that anyone under the age of 13 must wear a life jacket while aboard any watercraft under 26 feet in length at all times the boat is underway, unless they are below deck in an enclosed cabin or operating on private property. Illinois law also requires
