All aboard! Steam train offers ride between Tiskilwa and Sheffield By Donna Barker email@example.com
TISKILWA/SHEFFIELD — The Tiskilwa and Sheffield fire departments are expecting good crowds for Sunday’s steam train rides between the two towns. The Tiskilwa and Sheffield fire departments are joining efforts with the Iowa Interstate Railroad to provide Sunday’s round-trip steam train rides from Tiskilwa to Sheffield and from Sheffield to Tiskilwa. On Thursday, Tiskilwa Fire Chief Randy Philhower said 800 tickets were made available for Sunday’s event, with the tickets split equally between the two fire departments. As of Thursday morning, he only had four tickets left, and he expected them to be long gone before Sunday. The steam train holds 800 people, with 400 people allowed on the first ride from Tiskilwa to Sheffield where another 400 people will board the train, Philhower said. The steam train will then return to Tiskilwa where the first 400 Tiskilwa passengers will depart the train and the second group of 400 passengers will board. The train will then head back to Sheffield where the second group of Sheffield passengers will be ready to board. Philhower said he’s been a bit surprised at such a good turnout for the steam train ride, but it’s a great way for people to experience a piece of history. Money raised by the Tiskilwa Fire Department from Sunday’s event will be used to get equipment for the department’s new fire truck, Philhower said. On Thursday, Sheffield Fire Chief Andy Lanxon said he had 60 tickets left right then, but expected them to be gone by Sunday. Of course, people can come and watch the steam train and enjoy that experience, even if they don’t get a ride, he said.

A new sewer plant? Walnut looks at the process By Nita Wyatt firstname.lastname@example.org
WALNUT — The village of Walnut’s engineer presented the preliminary plans for updating the village’s sewer plant this week. Matt Hansen of Willett & Hoffman engineering firm of Dixon presented the plans
for a $2 million upgrade and update for the village’s sewage plant. This plan will begin with a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 16 in the village meeting room. The public meeting will allow residents an opportunity to hear the presentation of the plans and to ask questions. After this initial public meeting, there will be an additional 10-day period during which residents can submit written questions and comments to the village trustees.
The original sewage plant was built in 1965; a lagoon was added in the 1980s; and in 1990 the village received a grant for the construction of liquid storage. There have been no additions to the system since the 1990 construction. Only general maintenance has been done to keep the facility in good operating condition. Hansen said his firm generally states sewage

It’s harvest time! Paul White of Princeton picks tomatoes from his garden plot in the Covenant Children’s Home community plots, located on Dover Road. This year, White has harvested four plots containing all sorts of vegetables including green beans, potatoes, peppers, cucumbers and much more. White has grown all sorts of crops in the community plots for about five years. He said most of the plot gardeners are retirees, so it gives them all a little hobby to work at and take care of throughout the spring and summer months. This year so far, White has harvested about 40 quarts of tomatoes alone, and they are still coming strong.
Scam alert from U.S. Postal Service By Donna Barker email@example.com
PRINCETON — The U.S. Postal Service is warning customers to be aware of an email scam using the Postal Service. On Friday, the U.S. Postal Service’s Corporate Communications spokesperson, Beverly Howard, said some postal customers are receiving bogus emails about an attempted or intercepted package delivery or online postage charges. The customer is instructed to click on a link, open the attachment, or print the label. But when
opened, the link or attachment installs a malicious virus which can steal personal information from the customer’s personal computer, Howard said. “The Postal Inspectors warn: Don’t do it!” Howard said. “Like most viruses sent by email, clicking on the link or opening the attachment will activate a virus that can steal information — such as your user name, password and financial account information.” The Postal Service’s recommendation is to simply delete the message without taking any further action, Howard said. The
Postal Inspection Service is working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program. Locally, Princeton Post Master Shannon Mattingly said this email scam is not a new scam but has been going on for a couple years. There have been customers coming into the Princeton Post Office looking for their parcels, the postmaster said. The U.S. Postal Service does not typically send out emails to customers, but rather would put notices in the customer’s

Tick alert! Health departments issue warnings By Donna Barker firstname.lastname@example.org
PRINCETON — With the continuing warm weather, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Bureau/Putnam County
Health Department are urging residents to be aware of the dangers of tick bites. IDPH Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck said infected ticks can be the carriers of several diseases, including Lyme
disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia and ehrlichiosis. Tickborne diseases can cause mild symptoms, but severe infections may require hospitalization and may even cause death, Hasbrouck said. “Diagnosing tickborne illness is based largely on the patient’s

knowledge that they’ve been bitten by a tick and the signs and symptoms of illness,” Hasbrouck. “While antibiotics can treat illnesses due to tick bites, it’s best to avoid tick bites altogether by taking some simple precautions.” Some of those precautions include walking in the center of trails to avoid weeds; using repellent that contains 20 to 30 percent DEET; tucking long pants into socks and boots; and wearing light-colored pants which makes ticks easier to see. In areas where ticks are found, people should check themselves and family members for ticks every two to three hours, especially their ears, hair, neck, legs and between the toes. On Tuesday, Kurt Kuchle, director of health protection for the Bureau/Putnam County Health Department, said he has not heard of any cases of Lyme disease or other tick-related diseases this year in Bureau or Putnam counties. The primary sign of Lyme disease is a bullseye shaped rash development or the actual sighting of a small tick
on the body. However, many cases of Lyme disease go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, he said Prompt removal of ticks is critical, and prompt showering is recommended when returning from the outdoors, Kuchle said. There is an old myth that people should remove a tick by burning it, but the IDPH recommends using tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible and then pulling upward without twisting. Also, people should be sure to clean the area, as well as their hands, afterwards. People should also take care to watch their pets for ticks, Kuchle said. If pets have symptoms of swollen joints or leg stiffness or a stiff leg gait, they could have Lyme disease and need to go to the vet. Lyme disease is treatable in pets, just as with humans, but the sooner the better, he said. Not all ticks are infected with disease, Kuchle said. And like mosquitoes, people just don’t know which ones are infected; therefore, treat all ticks like they are infected, he said. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

BV continues to face financial downfalls firstname.lastname@example.org
MANLIUS – The Bureau Valley School Board recently reviewed the district’s tentative budget for Fiscal Year 2014, which projects a similar deficient as last year’s fiscal budget. Superintendent James Whitmore confirmed last year’s budget provided a deficient of around $700,000. Since February, the board has been forced to make deep cuts and increase fees in order to lower the deficit. With numerous financial setbacks throughout the year including lower state aid payments and increased expenditures, the board worked this spring to come up with ways to cover the deficit. “Whatever you do, you just don’t seem to come out of it,” Whitmore said. “It seems to be the same story for several school districts.” Whitmore said the good news is the district didn’t use as much bond money as they had anticipated. Last fall, the district approved to sell $3 million worth of bonds. The district was forced to use half of that money to make up last year’s budget. Another bit of information Whitmore shared
was about state revenue. Although payments have been cut back, they have been coming in on time. “If that was to occur again next summer, our budget will look even better,” he said. “But you can never count on state money.” Looking ahead, the board anticipates a number of retirements at the end of the year, which Whitmore said will be a cost-saving opportunity. The board will continue to avoid having to draw from bond money to keep as much in reserves as possible. The board prompted discussion on the possibility of crafting a two- or threeyear financial plan based on past budgets. Whitmore said this might be able give the board a clearer road map to follow when working with future budgets. Also at their August board meeting, the board: • Agreed to purchase a 36-plus passenger wheelchair-equipped bus from Midwest Transit of Kankakee for $83,972. • Approved a German Club overnight trip to Concordia Language Village. • Approved the alterna-

Helping friend through crisis By Donna Barker email@example.com
PRINCETON — Friends of Pam Mansnerus have set up a benefit banking account to help with expenses as Mansnerus battles cancer. Mansnerus was diagnosed three years ago with non-small cell lung carcinoma, a disease that took the lives of her mother, an aunt, and two years ago, her brother. She has also been hit with metastatic spinal cord and brain tumors. Friends Kristi Warren and Diane Temple have established the Pam Mansnerus Benefit Account at Heartland Bank and Trust in Princeton. Warren and Temple will oversee the account to help make sure essential needs are met for the family. Warren said she and Temple had worked with Mansnerus for more than 20 years at Perry Memorial Hospital. “We felt in our hearts that we needed to help a friend, so we set up this account,” Warren said. “After more than 20 years working together, you become like family.” Temple agreed, saying she had worked with Mansnerus on a daily basis. The past three years have been hard as Mansnerus worked around her treatments, first part-time for a short time before working her way back up to fulltime and then taking disability about a year ago. “It was basically from the heart of working with Pam all these years that Kristy and I got together and decided this account is what we wanted to do,” Temple said. As she has watched Mansnerus go through the past three years, Temple said she has learned yet again that you need to live your life the best you can and to not let the little things get to you because they don’t matter than much. Life is short, and every day is to be

appreciated, Temple said. On Wednesday, Steve Mansnerus said his wife is a remarkable and strong woman who has been through a lot, with different drugs, radiation and treatment. Her chemotherapy doctor said Pam has rewritten some of the books on how things will go with certain drugs, and her case will be used in future studies, Steve said. His wife was hospitalized most recently one week ago at Perry Memorial and then transferred on Labor Day to Colonial Hall Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center in Princeton, where she remains, Steve said. Through everything, she has received wonderful care from the hospitals and Colonial Hall, doctors and staff, he said. The Mansneruses have been married 32 years and have three grown children, who are also strong as they go through this with their parents, Steve said. “It’s an amazing experience to see your kids grow up and then come to take care of you,” Steve said. About three weeks ago, Pam changed her mind about a very important decision in her life, Steve said. After years of not wanting to be an organ donor, she decided that, when the time comes, she wants to donate her entire body for cancer research, Steve said. Looking back on these past three years, Steve said this is a journey they have faced together as a couple. The doctors caught his wife’s cancer early, and they’ve had three years together, for which they are grateful. But this week has been a tough one, Steve said, not knowing how much time his wife has left, another hour, a couple more days, another week. “It’s been a long journey, but I hope she goes quickly because I don’t want her to suffer,” Steve said.

Walnut From Page 1 sewage plant mechanicals and structures have a life span of 25 years. He commended the village on their diligence with the maintenance and upkeep of their system to keep it in operation for almost 50 years. The proposed plan calls for the addition of fine screening, adding a flow meter, replacement of all of the mechanicals within the package plant, construction of a new building for the package plant, replacement of blowers that were installed in 1965, and the addition of some OSHA required safety rails. The project will include several phases. The first phase is the planning phase which includes the current activity and the first submission of the preliminary plan to the Environmental Protection Agency. Once approval of the preliminary plan is received, that phase will be complete. The second phase will be the application phase which includes the bidding process, loan application and receiving of permits. This phase will also include an authorizing ordinance passed by the village board and submission of necessary forms. The final phase, the construction phase, would begin in July 2014 with completion scheduled for June 2015. Hansen said there
will be no interruption in service to the customers. There will be an increase in the amount of customers’ bills of approximately $17 per month. The village board will need to make decisions about the time frame for the payment increase and whether the increase is done incrementally or in one step. Hansen and the board will be present for the public meeting on Sept. 16. In other business, Dena Wilt, chairperson of the board of trustees of the Walnut United Methodist Church, presented a letter to the board requesting the village provide snow removal for the handicap parking the church is currently paving. In 2010 it was discovered during a surveying process that 8 inches of the fire station was sitting on property owned by the church. Because of this 8 inches, the church deeded 7 feet to the village, and then the village had clear title to the fire department building. In exchange for the deeding of this property, the church would like for the village to provide snow removal for their handicapped parking. The church will be responsible for all maintenance of this handicapped area and will be liable for any injuries that would occur on the property. After discussion by the board, Trustee Lee Sarver made a motion to provide snow removal, and this motion was passed by the board. The motion included
the stipulation the village would not be liable for damages or injuries, and the snow removal would be done with the time constraints of providing the clearing of the village streets as a first priority. Also, Walnut Village President Dennis Grobe discussed with the board a change requested in the legal description of the Hanson property being sold by the village. This property has been published for sale by sealed bid. A request had been received by Grobe that an additional 25 feet owned by the village be added to the property for sale. This 25 feet will make this property square rather than an odd shape. An ordinance for the change was proposed and passed by the board. A new three-week publishing period for the sale will be done and new bids for the property will be opened by the board on Oct. 7. In a final note, Nita VonHolten, village treasurer, reported the new backhoe ordered by the village has been received and payment has been made. The treasurer’s report presented to the board reflected the payment for the backhoe. The next village board meeting is at 7 p.m. on Sept. 16 with the public meeting for the sewage plant improvements at 6:30 p.m. on that same date. Both meeting will be held at the village meeting room. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Spring Valley looks at cooperative insurance By Brock Cooper email@example.com
SPRING VALLEY — The city of Spring Valley is waiting on cost estimates for a cooperative insurance agreement with other municipalities. Mayor Walt Marini said at this week’s council meeting he is also looking for a quote to keep the existing insurance policy. “Just so we can compare the costs,” Marini said. In other business, the council:
• Learned the first phase of the IKE grant work at the waste water treatment plant is complete, and the second phase which includes tree removal is beginning. • Approved a Spring Valley Business Revitalization TIF grant for Spring Valley Mini Mart and Edward Jones. • Approved rezoning the Bassick property from M-1 limited manufacturing to B-4 General Commercial. The zoning had already been approved by the planning commission. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Produce-ing memories It had been a long day at work, and quite honestly, the only thing I wanted to do when I got home was put on a pair of cotton sweatpants, an old T-shirt and curl up on the couch. But you see, I had this brilliant idea in the spring that we should have a garden, and a couple of tomato plants just wouldn’t suffice. No, I had to plant enough tomato plants to feed a small army, along with peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, onions and more. And Terri now ... a few months later, I fight the eterSimon nal battle of going out to the garden after a tiring day at work — in the middle of the hottest part of the day — to pick more produce than one family could ever eat in a lifetime. Tomatoes! It was craziness. Cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, a Snow White tomato our friends Richard and Connie told us about, slicers, hybrids, heirlooms ... what the heck! It is tomato city, and as if it isn’t just difficult enough to pick them, then I have to decide how many ways I can prepare these glorious red vegetables (I know they are a fruit, but that doesn’t seem right to me) or figure out one more person I can pawn off some of these tomatoes to. And so it was the other day when the mercury was teetering on 90 degrees, and I was shoulder deep into tomato plants. My tomato baskets were getting really full.. The longer I picked, the more sweaty I got. It wasn’t long before I did what I always do in demanding situations ... I started to daydream. It didn’t take long before I was taken back nearly 50 years ago, when Grandpa and I would head to the family’s garden to reap the benefits of our springtime efforts. We had a massive garden — one which I helped to plant, harvest and ultimately spent hours in the kitchen helping Grandma can and freeze and prepare a plethora of fresh produce. No kidding. A garden fed our family. It wasn’t just a novelty or a hobby. We had to have a garden. It fed our family. From there my mind wandered to the basement (we called it the cellar years ago), where jar after jar of canned vegetables lived. I can’t even count how many times I was sent to the cellar to retrieve a glass jar of pickles, tomatoes, green beans or applesauce. It was what farm families did. It’s how we ate. We would have never thought of buying a jar of pickles or a can of tomatoes at the store. That just wasn’t frugal. Still picking tomatoes and lost in my past, it wasn’t long before the tears were mixed with sweat as I strolled up and down Memory Lane and the row of vegetables. I don’t remember complaining about working the garden with my grandparents, for it was just expected. If you wanted to eat at my house, then it was simple — you needed to help. And we did. It was just part of being a family. My grandparents taught me many valuable lessons; they were lessons they instilled in me by their examples, their words — examples that came from their hearts. I think about them a lot, and I always wish I could repay them for everything they gave me throughout the years I shared with them. They weren’t folks with lots of money or property or possessions, but they were loving people with big hearts who were generous — not just with what they owned but also with their love and kindness. I am forever grateful. Sunday is Grandparents Day. What I wouldn’t give to have my grandparents over for dinner, give them special gifts and treat them to a fun-filled day to honor them and the impact they’ve had in my life. But for me, that opportunity is gone. Only memories remain for me. If you’re lucky enough to still have your grandparents in your life, I hope you’ll take the opportunity to tell them how much they mean to you. Life is so unpredictable. Give them a Grandparents Day they’ll always remember. Do it while you can. Contact BCR Editor Terri Simon at tsimon@ bcrnews.com.
Flippin’ the birdie I have always lived with the sincere belief that everyone is born with at least one God-given talent that they can do better than almost anyone else. The key to success in life is figuring out what that talent is before you die. Can you imagine what the world would be like if Rembrandt, Da Vinci or Grandma Moses had never picked up a paint brush? What if Shakespeare became a pirate instead of putting ink to paper? What if Michael Jordan had never picked up a basketball? What if Donald Trump had never done whatever it is he does? I think that’s what separates us “regular” folks from the “famous” people. They’ve just been lucky enough to have stumbled upon what they are truly good at. The rest of us are just hanging around trying to figure out what our “thing” is. For most of my life, I’ve wandered the planet trying to determine my “special” talent. Sometimes the planets align themselves in just the right way, and I’m happy to report that I may have found my calling. I recently made the delightful discovery that I am an awesome badminton player. In fact if I were a little younger, had received the proper coaching and training, I might possibly have been one of the world’s best badminton players … ever. Alas, I probably won’t turn professional now because when you combine the facts that I’m in my late-40s and up until the time of writing this, I thought the word was spelled “badmitton” instead of “badminton.” I guess that none of us world-class athletes are known to be brainiacs. It’s because we spend so much time in the gym honing our skills. I discovered that I was a prodigy when my mother sent home some 50-year-old badminton paraphernalia with my daughter a few weeks back. The equipment had just been gathering dust up in the storeroom, and Mom thought she would enjoy playing with it. The equipment consisted of three or four banged-up, warped rackets, and three shuttlecocks, or as we in the sport refer to as “birdies.”
Greg Wallace FROM THE SKETCHBOOK That’s it. There was no net. I imagine that it deteriorated into dust back during the first term of the Reagan Administration. But that didn’t really bother us. The way I see it, a net would just hamper my natural fluidity and grace when playing the sport. I’d hate to cheat any of my neighbors watching me play and enjoying my graceful leaps, bounds and spins. My daughter and I just go out in the backyard and whack the birdies around. There aren’t any boundaries or rules to speak of. In fact, it’s kind of an added challenge to play around the trampoline, hammock and cable television wire. It’s tough, but real athletes adapt. At first, her 8-year-old coordination prevented her from hitting the birdie on a regular basis, or sometimes, at all. When she did manage to get a hold of one, I was pleasantly surprised to find the natural ease I had in returning it to her. It almost seemed second nature as I flicked the racket about, flipping the birdie back in her direction. The more we played, the better we got. She was able to hit the birdie much more consistently, and I started to get more confidence in my play. It has gotten to the point where I almost feel bad when I violently smash the birdie back toward her wide-eyed, terror-stricken face. I tell her I’m sorry and try to explain to her that when you’re riding a thoroughbred, sometimes you just have to let the horse run. The other day when we were playing, I noticed that she was showing vast improvement. Not only was she hitting the birdie more often, but she was also hitting it to areas beyond the 2-3 foot radius I can comfortably cover without sweating and/ or hurting myself. She audibly giggles when she hears Daddy’s knees make funny noises.
Evidently, my wife had been practicing with her while I wasn’t home. I guess that she doesn’t derive the same kind of joy that I do in my total badminton domination of a little girl. My daughter’s getting pretty good. In fact, sometimes the master has become the student. She’ll probably take the sport to heights that I can only imagine. Apparently the birdie doesn’t fall far from the tree. So it is with this in mind that I come before you today to announce that I am now retiring from the sport of badminton. It’s tough stepping away from the game I’ve so deeply loved and cherished over the past month and a half, but I don’t want to be one of those guys that held on for too long. No, it’s time for a new breed of superstar to step into the spotlight and take the reins. I’ve had my moment in the sun. What would have happened if I had taken up the sport back when I was in my teens? One can only imagine. Sure, I’d most likely have made millions traveling around the globe playing in the Professional Badminton League. I’d probably still be playing in Europe somewhere on the senior circuit, trying to shoo away all the badminton groupies who would just be after me for my fame and fortune. It would have been a totally different kind of life, but I don’t know if I would be truly happy right now. It leaves a person to wonder what could have been. But don’t feel bad for me. No, I was lucky enough to find my purpose here on this planet before it was too late. So I wish all of you readers the best of luck as you travel through life. I hope that you all somehow stumble upon the one thing that you’re better at than anyone else and makes you happy. What will I do in my retirement? Well everybody had better look out next summer because I’m pretty sure my mom has a 50-year-old croquet set buried in that storeroom somewhere.

Festival 56 brings back ‘Hometown-Anonymous’ PRINCETON — “Hometown-Anonymous,” an original Festival 56 play based on stories submitted by Princeton residents, returns for an encore run over Princeton’s Homestead weekend Sept. 13-15 at the Grace Performing Arts Center, 316 S. Main St., Princeton. In “Hometown-Anonymous,” five actors playing a variety of characters and share bittersweet but ultimately
life-affirming tales – the challenge of growing up in a small town like Princeton, the experience of dealing with personal setbacks and losses, and the sometimes painful disagreements over politics and religion. The “HometownAnonymous” stories also convey Princeton’s community spirit, and the way a small town can pull together with good will, generosity and humor.
As Dexter Brigham, Festival 56 artistic director, explains, “HometownAnonymous is a work of fiction that was inspired by many tales about life that were submitted by residents of Princeton. While inspired by true events and people, it has definitely been woven together in a way that tells a new story about not just our community, but all small towns.” Brigham, Aleena Yunuba Hammack and Brad
Raimondo collaborated in crafting the play that has now become “Hometown-Anonymous.” Raimondo directs this Festival 56 production. “Hometown-Anonymous” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Woodland owner conference UTICA/OGLESBY — The Illinois Forestry Association is holding its annual conference on Sept. 20-21, at Starved Rock State Park and Illinois Valley Community College in LaSalle County. Both IFA members and the public are invited to attend either the entire event or any portion they wish. This year’s theme is “Here Comes the Sun” - giving your trees room to grow. Friday afternoon field trips from 1 to 4 p.m. are free; professional foresters will discuss ways to provide your better trees the resources they need to improve. Friday night, from 6 until 9 p.m., the IFA will host a dinner. The keynote speaker is William Luppold, research economist for the USDA Forest Service, presenting aspects of the international timber market that apply to Illinois woodland owners — where our timber goes, what it is used for, and export and import markets as well. The charge for the dinner and speaker is $25. Saturday, indoor presentations from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. will cover the methods addressed on Friday, what to con-
sider before opening the forest canopy, the wildlife benefits from opening the canopy, and the economic improvement to your timber from these methods. Saturday’s sessions include lunch, and the fee is $25. Speakers are from university forestry schools, the IDNR and the National Wild Turkey Federation. The fee for attending the entire program of field trips, dinner/speaker/ and indoor sessions is $45. More details are available on the IFA’s website, www.ilforestry.org/ events.

Lending a hand and heart to Pam Mansnerus in her battle with cancer. Pam has been fighting lung cancer for three years and sadly has traveled to the brain. She and her husband, Steve are life long residents of Princeton and have been a part of our community for others in need. Now is the time to pay it forward to them. Cancer treatment expenses have resulted in overwhelming medical bills, travel expenses and everyday living expenses. Many families who encounter this type of financial burden find it difficult to make ends meet and the Mansnerus family has reached this point. An account has been established, Pam Mansnerus Benefit, at Heartland Bank in Princeton. All donations, big and small, are greatly appreciated.

BCR Game of the Week
PERU — The arm of St. Bede quarterback Jack Brady was one of the top storylines from the Three Rivers conference after week one. On Friday, Brady went back to the air to lead his team to a comeback win. After a five touchdown performance at Amboy last week, Brady threw for 296 yards on 18 of 33 passing on Friday night. His biggest throw of the night was the game winner, a 24-yard touchdown strike to Sam Halm with 2:56 remaining in the game, giving the Bruins a 29-25 victory over the Bureau Valley Storm. “We stuck with it the whole game and never gave up,” said Brady, who threw for 101 yards in the fourth quarter alone. “The offensive line picked it up a lot towards the end of the game. We grinded this one out for the win.” St. Bede (2-0) trailed the entire game up until the Brady to Halm

Tigresses crack 200 By Kevin Hieronymus email@example.com
The Princeton Tigresses told coach Will Gross they wanted to crack the 200-stroke mark for the first time this season. Then they went out and did it Wednesday. The Tigresses met that goal by two strokes with a 198 to defeat Three Rivers foes Rockridge (210) and DePue (262) at Chapel Hill Golf Course. Sophomore Arraia Hicks got her third meet medalist with a 46. Also for PHS (4-4), Sophia Suarez and Audra Reidner added 48s, Julie Miller a 56 and Sarah Crowe a 61. “The girls told me at their team huddle prior to the start of the match that they decided that they wanted to break the 200 barrier for the first time this year and they worked together and accomplished just that. It’s that kind of heart and desire that makes me unable to be any more proud and honored to be their coach,” Gross said. “I was extremely proud of the attitude and determination to improve that the girls displayed throughout the match. We had two of our best practices leading up to this match and it paid dividends as Julie Miller and Audra Reidner put up career lows to help
us regain our momentum and beat a tough TRAC team in Rockridge, whom defeated us last week, none the less posted the lowest team score since I took over as their head coach with a 198.” At Valley View: Sydney Eustice claimed medalist honors at 46 to lead the St. Bede Lady Bruins (197) to victory over host Orion (262) Wednesday.

STERLING – The first set of Thursday’s volleyball match between Newman and St. Bede concluded with a nice set by Kacyi Howell that Rachel Humphreys emphatically spiked onto the Bruins’ side of the court. The execution was a stark contrast to how the Comets started the set and a harbinger of things to come in the second set, as Newman won the nonconference match 25-22, 25-16. “I think we finally started to go on the attack,” Newman coach Debbi Kelly said. “At the start of the night, St. Bede was attacking, and we kept making mistakes. When we started to attack, they started making mistakes.” The Bruins jumped out to a 7-2 lead with five of those points coming on Newman hitting errors. Newman scored three points on three hitting errors by the Bruins to tie the score at 15 and took its first lead at 19-18. Newman won six of the next 10 points to claim the first set. The Comets kept on the throttle in the second set, building six-point leads at 11-5 and 12-6. The Bruins rallied to tie the score at 14, and forcing Newman to call timeout. The timeout did the trick, as Newman outscored St. Bede 11-2 the rest of the way. Olivia Mueller led St. Bede (3-5, 0-1) with three kills and three blocks.

no. “Sometimes it was six or seven guys so we went more to the short game.” Through three quarters, the Storm (1-1) controlled most of the tempo of the game. BV caught a break when they recovered a Justin Shaw fumble on a punt return with 4:23 remaining in the third quarter. One play later, Parker Neuhalfen dashed 35 yards for a touchdown to put the Storm ahead 25-14. However, the Storm offense would only convert two more first downs the rest of the game and St. Bede would score on their first two possessions of the fourth quarter to turn the game in their favor. “They made plays and we didn’t,” said Storm coach Jeff Ohlson. “We didn’t convert a 3rd-and-1 and we let (Halm) loose. We’ll have to go back to the film and see what happened.” Ohlson was pleased with his team’s defense throughout most of the game, which didn’t allow a touchdown to the St. Bede offense until Halm’s first touchdown catch of the game midway through the third quarter. St. Bede did gain an early lead when Baylee Hopps scooped up a Neuhalfen fumble and returned it 66 yards for a touchdown just over three minutes into the game. Neuhalfen was shaken up on the play and was relieved at quarterback by running back Josh Mead, who came in and moved the offense down the field by carrying the ball seven times for 51 yards out of the option. Neuhalfen returned on the last two plays of the drive and Tucker Schoff finished the 80 yard drive with a one yard score. BV later went up 13-7 with a 16-yard touchdown catch from Neuhalfen to Mead with 29 seconds remaining in the half. Bellino said the key to coming back was

PHS coach Jason Bird was not overly pleased with the Tigers’ effort having rocked Alleman 5-1 less than a week before in a 50-minute game. He said the Tigers didn’t play with much energy, and “Alleman took it to us.” But he added, “We will take any win we can get.” DePue 7, Serena 3: The Little Giants took their victory tour on the road Thursday to Serena where they stayed on a hot streak. Carlos Acosta scored five of the seven goals with Adrian Perez responsible for three assists. “It was a good defensive effort with some small communication errors,” DePue coach Tim Stevens said. “Offense was a little one dimensional but the assist to goal ratio was encouraging. We need to work on spreading out the attack in midfield and better transition defense.” Comment on this story at www. bcrnews.com

From Page 11 “Every block and tackle last week was a farce I would say. The kids are the ones to commend here. They came out and didn’t hesitate. They could have said, ‘Oh gosh, we’re going to play like last week’, or second thoughts like that, but they didn’t. They came out and played very hard. I’m proud of them.” Mike Ely’s 7-yard run with 10:32 to play in the third quarter put the running clock into effect for the rest of the second half. Senior J.J. Vaccaro, who did not play as a junior, was a bright light on offense for the Tigers. He snagged a 38-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Jake Reinhardt, setting up his own 2-yard score two plays later at the 1:47 mark of the second quarter. “He’s a good kid. Works hard, very athletic. Played really well for us tonight,” PHS coach Jesse

Snyder said. While the Tigers rushing attack was limited to 37 yards on 24 attempts, Snyder saw some positives with their passing game. Reinhardt drew the starting assignment at quarterback Friday, completing 11 of 25 attempts for 89 yards. “We threw the ball well,” he said. “We’ve got to make adjustments upfront with our protection. Got to make sure we’re calling out our blocking assignments.” Snyder said the Tigers just have to continue to work hard in practice. “We’ve just got to come out and work against each other a little bit harder, push each other and see if we can get better every day,” he said. • Tiger tales: Friday’s game was the Comets’ first visit to Bryant Field since 1980, a game won by the Tigers 20-8. Newman took the teams’ last meeting in 1981 at Sterling, 20-2. The Meteors wonthe sophomore game 9-0.
