The rights to the right-of-way Spring Valley studies property issue By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

SPRING VALLEY — Spring Valley may be one step closer to gaining railroad rightof-way near the west sewer interceptor, which is needed in order for the city to build an access road to transport equipment near the site. On Monday, the council authorized an easement agreement with stipulations with Hawkeye Land Co. for $50,000. The final decision came despite questions regarding why the city has easements for every other sewer pipe in the area, but not any for the piping near the west sewer interceptor. After an attempt to locate easement documentation for the location, city officials weren’t able to locate any paperwork associated with the property until Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday — a day after the decision was approved to authorize an easement with Hawkeye Land Co., Mayor Walt Marini said Superintendent of Public Works John Schultz located paperwork for the sewer line, which could possibly mean the city already has some sort of rights to the land. Marini couldn’t say for sure if the paperwork was an easement but said lawyers from Hawkeye Land Co. and Spring Valley City Attorney Jim Andreoni were working to determine what rights the city might already have based on the paperwork. If the city already has rights to the land, they could avoid the $50,000 payment to Hawkeye Land Co. At the council meeting Monday, Marini expressed how he had gotten a bad feeling when working with a representative from Hawkeye Land Co., who originally wanted to charge the city $160,000 for the easement.

PES, Reagan and the future More time needed ... By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — Princeton Elementary School Superintendent Tim Smith is asking for more time to get things in place before making a final recommendation about what to do with the district’s school buildings next fall.

At Monday’s meeting of the PES Board, Smith said the goal of the administration team is to continue to focus on providing the best education possible for all students. The district needs a plan that creates the least amount of change, especially for the students, while still addressing the need to decrease costs in the transportation and building funds, he said. “This is an emotional issue, an important issue, and I take it very seriously,” Smith

said. “We have a number of communities that make up our school community, and every piece of that community is important to us. We are trying to do our best to understand how to use our buildings as best we can in order to offset some of our deficits.” In presenting his administrative team’s recommendation, Smith reviewed the financial issues that led to the building

Honor Flight still on despite shutdown Area vets aren’t sure which monuments they’ll be allowed to see By Derek Barichello Shaw Media Service

Veterans have waited too long to cancel their once-in-a-lifetime trip planned to the nation’s capital. Despite the federal government shutdown, which has closed memorials in Washington, D.C., an Honor Flight scheduled for today, Thursday, from the Quad Cities,

including several veterans from Bureau County, will continue as scheduled, said Bob Morrison, hub director for the flight. “We talked about (canceling), but we felt it would affect too many people,” Morrison said. “So many of these men (many of them older than 80 years old) have waited so long for this day, that we don’t feel it would be fair to make them wait any longer.”

An Honor Flight from the Mississippi Gulf Coast region made headlines Tuesday when its members were initially fenced off from the World War II Memorial. The gates were eventually opened in an informal arrangement, and the veterans were allowed to see the memorials erected in their honor. Barriers will close off the World War II, Korean and Vietnam memorials during the shutdown, Morrison said.

LADD — A Ladd teacher is among the 1,000 teachers honored nationwide Tuesday by the OfficeMax “A Day Made Better” National School Advocacy Program.

Jacki Knowles, a first -grade teacher at Ladd Elementary, was surprised Tuesday in her classroom by OfficeMax personnel who presented her with a bouquet of flowers, a plaque, a new office chair and $1,000

worth of classroom supplies. Knowles was nominated for the honor by Ladd Principal David Lawrence. In his nomination of Knowles, Lawrence said Knowles was hired this summer and has

Living Illinois Valley

spent countless hours before school, after school and on weekends working on her curriculum and preparing her classroom. Knowles is one of the first to arrive and the last teacher to leave most nights, the principal said. “She is a wonderful teacher and a great addition to our staff,” Lawrence said. “She continually puts her students’ wants and needs ahead of her own. I’ve watched her teach, and I’m so impressed that she is at our school, teaching our students.” At Tuesday’s presentation, OfficeMax spokesperson Jen Pyszka said the average American teacher spends about $1,000 out of his/her own pocket on school supplies each year. For the past seven years, OfficeMax and AdoptAClassroom.org have joined together to create “A Day Made Better’ to help ease the financial burden for

teachers, she said. The “A Day Made Better” is done each year on the first Tuesday of October to honor teachers for their hard work and dedication, Pyszka said. “We know how hard it is for our teachers to teach our students in today’s age, and the cost that goes along with it,” Pyszka said. “You (the teachers) are developing our children for the future, and it’s wonderful for us, at OfficeMax, to support our community.” As Knowles’ students sorted through all the gifts in the OfficeMax box, Knowles made sure her students said thank you to OfficeMax personnel. When asked by the OfficeMax personnel to describe their teacher, the first-graders said their teacher was the nicest, and prettiest, teacher ever. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Sanitary sewer system test in Princeton Residents may see smoke PRINCETON — Sewer smoke testing for the city of Princeton will take place the week of Oct. 7. As part of efforts to reduce clear-water entry into the sanitary sewer system, testing of the sewers will be conducted in the following areas: east side of Main Street south of Park Avenue to Thompson Street; Church Street and Chestnut Street south of Park Avenue; Thompson Street east to Euclid Avenue; Lake Street; Oak Street; North Euclid Avenue between Hudson Street and Warren Street; Hudson Street; Franklin Street; Jacqualine Lane; Fox Creek; and Linwood Drive. During the examination, a dense smoke will be blown through the sanitary sewers from a manhole. Smoke will then appear from any

roof drains, catch basins or house vent stacks connected to the system. The appearance of smoke from house vent stacks is normal and does not indicate a defect in the plumbing. Smoke may appear in basements by means of unused floor drains, disconnected or faulty plumbing fixtures or/ and direct opening to the house lateral. To reduce this possibility, pour water down all floor drains, sinks or other plumbing fixtures. The smoke used for the tests is non-staining and will disappear rapidly without leaving a residual odor. If smoke should appear in your building during the test, leave the building and contact a member of the survey team. For more information, contact the city of Princeton at 815-879-3961 or Visu-Sewer, Inc. at 800876-8478.

Ladd brush pick-up LADD — Ladd will hold its fall brush pick-up on Oct. 7. Crews will pick up tree and shrub trimmings that are from 3 to 8 feet in length and up to 6 inches in diameter. Piles should not exceed 4-feet-by-8-feet in size. Larger branches and items such as stumps, roots and professional

tree trimmings will not be collected. Bundles should not be tied or bound. They should be stacked with the cut end toward the street. Crews will begin working early in the morning and make one pass through the area. For more information, contact the clerk’s office at 815-894-2440.

Ordinance smoldering in Manlius By Goldie Currie gcurrie@bcrnews.com

MANLIUS — Manlius’ future ordinance geared to better regulate outdoor wood stove burners is in the drafting stages. On Tuesday, the village board oversaw the ordinance drafted by village attorney Mick Henneberry. With the help from village engineer Jack Kusek, the two are basing the ordinance around the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency air standards. “It’s a good start. We’re not finished,” Henneberry reported.

The village agreed to create an ordinance on the issue after a resident approached the board earlier this year with a concern about his neighbor’s homemade, outdoor wood stove burner, which apparently produces a large quantity of thick, blue smoke. Mayor Rob Hewitt has inspected the neighbor’s furnace and called it a hazard. “It’s a joke. It’s homemade,” he said on Tuesday. Aside from outdoor wood stove burners having to follow EPA air standards, they will also have to be installed

and maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If outdoor wood stove burners do not follow the ordinance, a resident will be subject to a $500 per day violation. Henneberry pointed out the ordinance will have to be enforced by citizens’ complaints because the village does not have furnace inspectors or a police agency. “This is going to have to be a self-policing issue,” he said. Kusek also suggested incorporating a reference to the village’s current nuisance ordi-

Let the harvest begin ... Area farmers like the one pictured here have been busy in the fields in and around Bureau County. According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, corn harvest reached 13 percent last week; 10 percent of the beans have also been harvested. When it comes to pasture land, conditions were rated at 12 percent very poor, 27 percent poor, 44 percent fair, 16 percent good and 1 percent excellent.

PES From Page 1 discussion, including the possible closing of Reagan Middle School in Tiskilwa. He then made building reassignment recommendations, excluding a specific recommendation for Reagan, for the board’s consideration. Smith said the administrative team has developed a recommendation to reassign the grades as follows: Douglas would house the Bright Beginnings/Early Beginnings program and kindergarten; Jefferson would have first and second grades; Lincoln would house the third and fourth grades; and Logan Junior High would have the fifth through eighth grades, with the fifth-graders staying in self-contained classrooms located primarily in Logan West. As far as the Reagan building, the administrative team is looking at

Honor Flight From Page 1 The Honor Flight of the Quad Cities organization is communicating with U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, to determine which monuments in the itinerary are accessible. That task has been difficult, said Jeff Giertz, a spokesman for Braley’s office. “National Park Service employees who oversee these memorials already have started furloughs,” Giertz said. “We’re working to get answers.”

multiple potential options for that building, Smith said. However, the Reagan options do need to remain semi-confidential for now because of the entities involved, he added. “I believe over the next two to three months, as we gain information, that we can use potentially all of our buildings and return our building fund to the condition where we actually have a surplus fund,” Smith said. In looking at the positive outcomes of the administrative team’s recommendation to reassign grades to certain buildings, Smith said students will still attend with all their grade level peers regardless of where they live. The pre-kindergarten through third grade students will not change buildings at all next year, while the fourth and fifth grade students will transition together for Logan Junior High. Seven shuttle

buses to and from Tiskilwa will be eliminated, and all of the existing technology at Reagan can be relocated to the other buildings. By reassigning students, only Lincoln and Logan buildings will be needed for PARCC testing, which will require some technology upgrades to just those two buildings. Also, with the proposed reassignments, there would be the possibility of relocating the Bright Beginnings/Early Beginnings program to Reagan, Smith said. If that scenario would happen, the district office could be reduced to an existing building, either Douglas or Reagan. The potential use of Reagan for other programming will likely result in offsetting the expenditure side of the building fund in a range from $30,000 to $115,000, he said. Looking at the potential cost savings to the district, Smith said the

transportation fund would be reduced by a minimum of $60,000. The building fund would be reduced by at least $50,000 without the repurposing of Reagan Middle School. There could also be a reduction in the education fund of about $563,474 during the 2014-15 school year if the district is able to reduce staff through attrition, or teacher retirements, due to grade siting. Collectively, the district could see an estimated savings of $673,474 in the first year, he said. Following Smith’s presentation, board President Judd Lusher thanked Smith and the administrative team for its hours of work on the presentation. The board then unanimously approved Smith’s request to give him and his administrative team more time to further explore its options. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

As for whether veterans leaving from the Quad Cities will be allowed to sidestep barriers, Giertz would not say for sure. “My understanding is that the park police did not stop them, and that was an inspiring moment,” Giertz said. “There wasn’t a formal arrangement made. I won’t comment on if an informal arrangement can be made.” With that said, the bus drivers in Washington and the Honor Flight organizers are prepared to make any last-minute

additions or changes, Morrison said. Memorials for Iwo Jima, the Unknown Soldier and the Air Force should be open, he added. “We should be able

to do just about everything, and if we have to add something, we can,” Morrison said. “We’ll be fine, and it will be another great, successful trip.” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

From Page 1 “For whatever reason he seemed to be in a big hurry, like he wanted it done yesterday,” he said. “He wanted me to call a special meeting, and I had to tell him I didn’t have the authority to agree to that much money and that it would have to come from the board.” Marini explained the representative dropped his price to $65,000 and then to $60,000 and ended negotiations at $50,000. On Tuesday, Marini admitted he never got a good feeling when talking with the Hawkeye Land Co. representative. He wasn’t the only one who had issues with dealing with Hawkeye Land Co. At the meeting Monday, Andreoni expressed he had concerns with Hawkeye Land Co. land agreement. One issue in the agreement was the city wouldn’t be able to expand or replace their existing sewer pipes on the property. Andreoni explained if the city agreed to spend $50,000 and then the Environmental Protection Agency was to come in and force the city to replace their sewer pipes, it just couldn’t fly. Andreoni called the agreement language “unacceptable.” Andreoni also had concerns with the legal title agreement to the property. While the easement would allow the city to have access to the road,

it was discovered Hawkeye Land Co. only had a 100-year lease on the property. Andreoni said he wanted to clarify that detail before signing the agreement to get a clear understanding who exactly owned the land. Marini reassured the city would complete a title search on the property to make sure they were dealing with the right property owners before signing the agreement. An answer should be available at the next council meeting as to what rights the city already might have with the land and whether or not the city will actually have to sign an easement with Hawkeye Land Co. In other news, the board: • Approved an ordinance authorizing golf carts/neighborhood vehicles in city limits beginning Nov. 1. Alderman Jack Narczewski said he had a problem with the idea. The council voted 5-2, with Narczewski and Alderman James Taliano voting no. Alderman Mark Actis was absent from the meeting. • Set trick-or-treat hours from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 31. • Agreed to waive building permit fees for St. Bede Assisted Living Center. • Amended an ordinance that allows the city to suspend or revoke a license to sell tobacco products. The change to the ordinance reassures business owners have the right to a hearing after their license is revoked. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Pawlak gets prison sentence for aggravated battery PRINCETON — A Utica teen has been sentenced to the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty in Bureau County Court to the Class 3 felony of aggravated battery. Corey P. Pawlak, 19, entered his guilty plea on Sept. 27 before Associate Judge Cornelius J. Hollerich. In addition to a two-year prison sentence. Pawlak was also ordered to pay fines, fees and court costs totaling $1,002. Pawlak was represented in court by Ottawa attorney Edward Kuleck. Pros-

ecuting the case was State’s Attorney Patrick Herrmann. On Dec. 9, 2012, a Spring Valley woman reported her one-year-old child had received bruising to his cheek area while he was left in Pawlak’s care. Upon investigation by Spring Valley Police Department, Pawlak was charged with aggravated battery. The child was treated and released from the hospital after an examination revealed it was only bruising to the child. This is Pawlak’s first conviction.

The power of friendship Sometimes having a best friend who truly knows who you are and where you came from is one of the best treasures in life. While sometimes it’s easy to take these types of friendships for granted, it’s important to cherish and recognize them as you grow older and your friendship continues to progress and become something so meanCOMMENTARY ingful. My best friend and I met when we were sixth-graders. From what I remember, we bonded over having to take the awful required gym class that year. As if junior high wasn’t awkward enough, we were forced to dress in a locker room for class and participate in made-up games we could have cared less for. The bittersweet experience, however, is one I would never take back. It was the first step in a friendship that would continue to grow even until this day. I’m coming to a realization of how important this certain friendship is in my life. Looking back, my best friend and I have made it through so much more than just that killer gym class. We continued to stay friends though middle school as we defeated the tough homework assignments, the overly-enthusiastic teachers and usual awkward experiences every junior high kid must go through. When we made it to high school, we continued life adventures together. We again faced “the worst homework assignments ever;” we always discussed who got cute and who didn’t over summer vacation; we made appearances together at school dances; and we spent long hours discussing what we want to do when we “grew up” and where we would attend college after graduation. When you are a senior in high school you go through a phase where going to college seems like it’s going to be the biggest deal ever, and you most likely will never communicate with people from high school again. While we both had the uneasy feeling that our friendship might pull away after college, we were determined to do whatever it took to make it last. Of course, we were ignorant to even think that way. When we got to college, we actually grew closer than ever. Although we attended colleges at opposite ends of the state, we continued to call each other and even started communicating on the new social website at the time called Facebook. We bonded over how tough exams were, how crazy a professor’s lecture could get and talked about our first encounters with college parties, of course. When we made it through our college careers, our bond grew even closer as we prepped to dip our toes into the real world. We weren’t sure what we were getting into at the time, but together we focused together on resumes and job interviews until we both landed our first “big girl” jobs. I can’t say it was the jobs we both were hoping for right out of college, but at that time in our lives, it was great to just be out of the college life routine and having the option to “dress up” for work everyday sounded awesome. Now that we are about three years into what you might call “adult life,” we continue to defeat the usual life challenges. Today our challenges revolve around not having any money, the regular, naggy hardships of living on our own, and the awful task of having to take our vehicles into the shop for regular oil changes. This most likely could be our least favorite thing to do in life right now. But as days march on and new life hurdles come into sight, I can say for certain it is so fantastic to have my best friend by my side reminding me that the life challenges are totally normal, and that no matter what, we are on the right track of where we’re supposed to be.

Our money, our parks, our property To the Editor, We’ve experienced the end of the world now, as government bureaucrats call it, for the 18th time in recent history — or a partial government shutdown as the rest of us call it. Only in the world of bureaucrats do you send employees home, forbid them to do any work for their employer even at home, pay them later, and call it “suffering.” The rest of us call it a vacation. But nothing frosts me more than when the feds start throwing people out of parks. How is it the feds can’t pay a few gatekeepers to hold out their hands and take more of our money, but they can pay lots of people to scour the parks and throw campers out or arrest them? If you’re a U.S. citizen, you own the park land as a birthright, and if the people you hired as a taxpayer to be its custodians can’t do their jobs, it’s your right to throw THEM out. Millions of people work 130 days a year and more to pay all of their combined taxes, and then humbly plan to spend a couple of weeks relaxing in THEIR park. For the feds to throw them out is an absolute, blatant, indefensible, abuse of power. Bureaucrats squander untold billions on lavish Hawaiian and Caribbean “seminars,” and spend endless office hours playing computer games and browsing porn sights (we’ve all seen the stories by now). But at shutdown time, they really hunker down and work tirelessly to come up with the most punitive schemes they possibly can to punish the serfs who work so hard to support them.

We’re not allowed to set foot on the national mall in D.C. during a government shutdown, OUR property, while at the same time we’re paying millions for the president’s golf outings and congressional salaries. What more could the government do to make us feel like browbeaten little serfs? Imagine George Washington and Thomas Jefferson coming back to life and setting out to take a walk across the national mall, only to be thrown off because “the government’s shut down.” Think this scenario through carefully because what they would do is what we ought to do. Dave  White Princeton

Wake-up, America To the Editor, Heading west on Interstate 80, a car with license plate “ACTS 29” allowed for great conversation. The following is a part which resulted from that conversation. The book of ACTS does not have 29 chapters. What chapters in ACTS has 29 verses? Chapter 4, Verse 29: “Enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.” Chapter 5, Verse 29: “We must obey God rather than man.” There are other Chapters in ACTS with 29 vers-

es; none seemed to impact us with such clarity. I support the idea that marriage is between one man and one woman. This statement does not make me a hater or a bigot of lesbians and gays; I fear God more than man. Religious liberty is eroding and silence remains. If I was forced to use my gun, it does not make me a murderer; it makes me a first responder. What happened on Sept. 11, 2012, in Benghazi was and is a complete cover-up. Four Americans brutally murdered — Glen Doherty, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens. Our military has a standard, never leave a fallen soldier behind. This country should be outraged. We must speak on their behalf because they cannot. Hillary Clinton, your shameful statement, “What difference at this point does it make?” will earn you a run for the White House in 2016. We will reap what we sow. The 1.2 million babies aborted, murdered in the womb in 2012 — we will be judged for this type of brutality. Our silence has stamped the approval on others’ actions. The Affordable Care Act is the most deplorable and destructive law ever forced upon the American peo-

ple. It has nothing to do with health care, it is the largest attack for power and control without regard to the welfare of American citizens or the nation. The result will be to destroy jobs and liberty. Our children and grandchildren will pay the price. The greatness of American traditional virtues of liberty, hard work, free enterprise no longer inspire a majority of the electorate. The lure of free stuff is irresistible. “Dumbing Down America” controls the population by keeping them uneducated, uninformed and happy to be that way. Government freebies are in essence a payoff for their vote. Democrats, Republicans, and more importantly, “We the People,“ are to blame. Americans are not engaged; the result will be a once great nation gone forever. The Constitution is being ignored; if this continues, the United States of America faces a very dangerous time. Edmund Burke stated, “For evil to flourish, all that is needed is for good people to do nothing.” A silhouette of Old Glory flies so perfectly in the wind. So much more than the red, white, and blue. Freedom with innocence, blood and perseverance. As a little girl I was awe struck when placing my hand over my heart reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. As a woman of 21 being sworn into the United States Navy, I had pride for this great country. Lack of tolerance for any dissenting opinions and political differences makes one silent. I will not be silenced any longer. America wake up from your own ignorance. Awake America! Kim Forristall Princeton

ERIE – Sterling Newman coach Val Gassman forgot to bring the traveling trophy that went with winning the 2012 Three Rivers boys cross country race. As it turned out, it wasn’t an issue. The Comets placed five runners in the top seven to cruise to the team title Tuesday at Lake Erie Golf Course. Newman finished with a mere 20 points, ahead of runnerup Bureau Valley, which had 71. Hall (88), Erie-Prophetstown (90) and Sherrard (137) rounded out the top five squads. Hall junior Al Baldonado won the race with a time of 16 minutes, 17 seconds.

All persons who bring a food or monetary donation to the ticket gate will receive a free bag of popcorn from the golf teams.

Kevin Hieronymus HIERONYMUS’ HYPOTHESIS

Buddy Bags is a not-forprofit organization working to address childhood hunger for students of Princeton Elementary School Districts, the Malden School District, St. Louis School, the Christian Academy and Princeton High School. The program provides

children in need with bags of food and drinks for meals and snacks on non-school days. In the 2012-13 school year alone, the Buddy Bags program provided food for 80 local students who would have likely gone hungry on weekends and other days when school was not in session to provide free/reduced meals to those in need. Tiger team captain Zach Hicks said it’s exciting to be able to help others. “It’s hard to fathom people around us, classmates who

might sit right next to me who have to go through something like that,” he said. “I know from a team aspect it means a lot to give back. We have a great booster organization that donates toward the program and help from members of the community. So this is a great way to help others as we have been helped. Whether it’s my neighbor, classmate or teammate, we should look out for them.” Requested non-perishable donations include: Canned meats, soups and

pasta (with pop tops). Fruits and juices: Cups of applesauce, fruit cups, 100% juice boxes (not pouches), etc. Breakfast items: Small boxed cereal, breakfast bars and/or Pop Tarts, milk boxes (shelf stable), etc. Snacks (individual sized): Raisins, pudding or jello cups, pretzels and/or potato chips, cheese crackers, animal crackers, packaged cookies, etc. Kevin Hieronymus is the BCR Sports Editor.

She finished the night with 15 points and six aces. “The team has been working on serving tougher. Becca got confident and was ripping serves,” Puck said.

Senior Ashley Farraher makes a pass for Princeton Tuesday at Rockridge. The Tigresses won in three sets.

EDGINGTON — The Princeton Tigresses were between a Rockridge and a hard place Tuesday night. After breezing to a 25-10 first set victory, the Tigresses found a renewed Rockets team took the court for the second and evened the match with a 25-19 victory. PHS regrouped and took home the match with a 25-14 third set win. PHS coach Andy Puck said it was more what Rockridge did in the second set than what his Tigresses didn’t do. “We played very well throughout the match,” he said. “Rockridge played out of their minds that second set. We just needed to stay confident, trust and

had 33 assists. With the win, the Tigresses improved to 6-0 in TRAC South play and 19-5 overall. ...

The PHS wrestling coach was a three-time state champion, a state runner-up and an All-State football player for his dad’s Rockets. .... PHS dropped both underclass matches, falling 25-22, 25-10 at the sophomore level and 25-16, 25-22 in the freshmen match. Comment on this story at www. bcrnews.com.

Ian Nichols had one of the best shots of the day in Tuesday’s Three Rivers Athletic Conference golf meet at Spring Creek, holing out from about 165 yards for an eagle 3 on the 365-yard 14th hole. Tiger coach Duane Price said it was simply a “great moment for a great young man.” Price said the hole itself “is one of the toughest on the course with its sloping fairway and pond in front of the green. I was on the tee helping our team with strategy for the hole because the tee shot is so crucial on the hole. I joked that it must have been his strategy from the tee that made the second shot so easy.” But Nichols’ shot was not the best one. That honor went to Sterling Newman sophomore Shawn Rosengren, the Comets’ No. 4 man, who connected for a hole-in-one on the 132-

Bruins, Rockets in key TRAC South battle By Kevin Hieronymus khieronymus@bcrnews.com

It’s Homecoming week at St. Bede with conference implications on the line, not to mention being able to all but wrap up a playoff berth.

The Bruins will welcome their alumni along with the Rockets of Rock- 5-0, 3-0 ridge High School for a key TRAC South Division battle. The Rockets are 5-0 overall, driving toward the conference championship sitting 3-0 atop the division standings. If the Bruins (4-1, 1-1) want to stay in contention for the South crown, they must beat the Rockets. “Homecoming is always a huge day for us at St. Bede. I know coach (John) Bellino will be reminding our kids that they are the show on Homecoming…everyone is coming to see them play, and they need to be ready,” St. Bede athletic director Tom McGunnigal said. “I know that he and the coaching staff will have them ready at game time and the boys will just need to go out and execute. Rockridge is very good. They are a perennial playoff team, and they are of that same caliber this year. I would anticipate a great high school football game. A great atmosphere for our players, kids, and alumni.” The Bruins stand fourth presently in the TRAC

From Page 9 Leading the Clippers was freshman Megan Grady, who blazed to a time of 19 minutes, 19 seconds over the 3-mile Erie course. It was a new record for Three Rivers meets held at Erie, shattering the previous mark of 19:48 set by Newman’s Emilie Barton in 2008. “I didn’t think I was going that fast, honestly,” Grady said. “I’m so happy, I’m shaking.” Grady needed about 1 1/2 miles to shake the only runner who posed much of threat, Erie-Prophetstown’s Corrie Reiley. Reiley finished in 20:29, while the thirdplace finisher, Princeton’s Mead, crossed the line in 20:50. “[Reiley] just kind of slowed down,” Grady said. “I was like, OK. I just kept my pace and kept going.” Popovich finished fourth in 21:00.9. She was followed by Erin Hosto (10th, 21:57), Caitlin Boers (15th, 22:31) and Brenna Rieker (29th, 23:46.9). The top 15 overall finishers earn all-conference honors. Amboy’s entire lineup consisted of freshmen and sophomores.

She finished behind Bureau Valley’s Regan Weidner a year ago in Walnut. Weidner is sidelined with a leg injury. Bureau Valley was third with 82 points.

They brought back five starters on offense and four on defense, including seniors Dalton McManus and Darren Southwell, who combined for nearly 2,000 yards rushing and 190 tackles a year ago. “The guys have worked really hard to earn this good start to the season. The offseason workouts were well attended, and the team chemistry is really good. These guys love playing for and with each other,” Graves said Southwell has taken over at quarterback this year, throwing for 1,063 yards and 8 TDs. He has also rushed for 506 yards and 9 touchdowns with McManus gaining 617 yards and 12 touchdowns. The first thing you notice on film about St. Bede, Graves said, is their size. “A lot of times, in small school football, teams that have that size won’t be fast, but they also have

I think it will gradually get better by the end of the season, but he has a better finish than I do. I’m not disappointed with how I ran today.” The top 15 finishers earn allconference honors, and Bureau Valley had a trio in that category. They were Daniel Trone, 8th in 17:38; Kane Eastwood, 11th in 17:54; and Andrew Smith, 15th in 18:12. Hall’s Sandro Aldana also walked off with a medal take in 13th place (18:07.9). The Storm are competing without their top runner, Ryan Taylor, who injured his foot in PE class two weeks ago. His status for the rest of the season is unclear. Princeton’s Cody Workman was nosed out by the Storm’s Smith for the final medal, finishing 16th (18:12.8). The top performer for Amboy was Skylar Wheeler, 24th in 19:12.7.

Next up Sprint Cup Race: Hollywood Casino 400 Where: Kansas Speedway When: Sunday, 1 p.m. (ET) TV: ESPN 2012 Winner: Matt Kenseth

Jimmie Johnson wins AAA 400 Becomes all-time Sprint Cup win leader at Dover Critics of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup have complained for years that the 10-race, season-ending run to the championship leads to a lack of attention paid to the drivers who are not in the running for the title. But this year, like many others, when it comes to the final 10 races, the main reason the also-rans get shuffled out of the spotlight is because the cream of NASCAR’s crop — that group of drivers who have made the Chase — rises to the top. On Sunday at Dover International Speedway, the top 10 in the finishing order were all Chase contenders. At New Hampshire the week before, fifth-finishing Jamie McMurray became the only non-Chase driver in the first three races to score a top-five finish. And in the Chase opener at Chicagoland, the only non-Chase drivers in the top 10 were Brad Keselowski in seventh and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in eighth. And there’s the fact that non-Chase drivers rarely make it to Victory Lane in the final 10 races. In the 93 Chase races run since the format was adopted in 2004, only 15 have been won by drivers not in the Chase

Alan Marler for Chevrolet

Jimmie Johnson became the all-time win leader at Dover with his eighth victory in Sunday’s AAA 400. that year. Greg Biffle and Tony Stewart, who usually are in the Chase, have had the most success of non-Chase drivers, winning three races each in years they were not among the elite running for the title. Most weeks, the stepped-up performance of the championship contenders commands the most attention. At Dover International Speedway on Sunday, points leader Matt Kenseth finished seventh and had what would have been a good points day if not for the fact that the drivers ahead of him were all in the Chase. Jimmie Johnson won at Dover, leading the most laps and scoring maximum points in his eighth triumph there, which gave him the track’s all-time win

Johnson gives the fans a burnout after his record-breaking Dover victory. leader record, which he had shared with Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison. And the five-time series champion extended his Chase-race win total to 23, more than double that of the next closest driver, Tony Stewart, who has 11 Chase-race wins, but is out of the running for the title this year because of a broken leg suffered in a sprint car race. Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, said it really is a matter of the cream rising to the top

when Johnson drives to the head of the pack in Chase races like the one on Sunday at Dover. “The man’s got a lot of skills,” Knaus said in the winner’s interview on Sunday. “I think he’s able to pull out some things that are pretty spectacular. He’s able to dig deeper, pull out his cape, make things happen in winning moments of these races that other people cannot do. It’s pretty spectacular.” At Dover, Johnson held off his teammate and pole-sitter Dale Earn-

hardt Jr. over the final 29 laps even though Earnhardt had four fresh tires to Johnson’s two. “I’ve seen a lot of great drivers; worked with a lot of great drivers,” Knaus said. “Knowing what we’ve got sitting behind the seat is always a little bit of confidence, knowing if you get close, if you make the right call at the right time, he’s going to be able to carry the ball. “Once again, I think Jimmie is probably the most underrated champion we have in this industry. He is by far and

above the most powerful driver over the course of the last 25, 35 years in this sport.” Johnson said that when he’s on the track, racing with drivers like Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch, with the championship in mind, he goes all out. “I was thinking about it when I was in the car,” he said. “My whole thought process was just how tough this championship’s going to be. They’re bringing their best and doing their best. “You’ve got to deliver.”

John Addis, co-owner of JV Enterprises of Illinois and based in Kewanee, which owns the franchise for the Princeton restaurant on North Main Street, said this week the process first began about 10 years ago when a house was acquired and demolished just south of the current Pizza Hut. “We had plans some day at that time to build a new one,” he said. “The new building will be 2,700 square feet and have a drive through, which isn’t normal for Princeton.

It will have seating for 100 people and include a full salad bar and buffet.” Addis said many Pizza Huts are eliminating the salad bar and buffet, but he and his wife, Vanessa, decided to keep this in the new Pizza Hut in Princeton because of its popularity with customers. “We will have more open seating and not be divided by walls as it is now,” he added. “We will have TVs and different decor.” The current Pizza Hut was first built in 1973 on its current Princeton site and has had three additions to it throughout the years. Addis said the construction schedule has the building going up with a roof on it by November. Interior work will then be completed during the winter months. In the spring, the new restaurant will be readied to open and the old structure will be torn down. Parking spaces for the

new restaurant will then be placed where the current restaurant building is now located. Addis said his company owns 11 Pizza Huts in Illinois, and he has remodeled or relocated other Pizza Huts since 2008. Princeton Pizza Hut is the last one to be remodeled. The Addises own Pizza Huts in Peru, Ottawa, Streator, Milan, Channahon, Wilmington, Orion, Geneseo, Colona and Kewanee. “Princeton has been a excellent store for us,” he said. “For 40 years, we have been proud to be part of this community. The city has been more than excellent to us and more than accommodating to meet our needs for the new building.” Addis said he has always liked the location of the Princeton Pizza Hut on North Main Street, and many customers have asked

them to stay there instead of moving closer to the interstate like other restaurants have done throughout the years. Tim Parry, area manager, has been with Pizza Hut for 28 years, while Heather McAlvey, current store manager, has been with the company for 20 years. Addis has been with the company for 34 1/2 years. He started out in high school in 1979 with Moss Management, the former owners of some of the area Pizza Hut franchises, and worked for them through college until he became a manager from 1986-88. He became area manager in 1988, a partner and vice president of the company in 1995, and then president in 2000. In 2008, he started JV Enterprises with his wife.

‘Obamacare’ scams emerge as new policies take effect Scammers are exploiting the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as a way to fool Americans into sharing their personal information. Many key provisions of the ACA have either gone into effect or will go into effect soon, so don’t let confusion around the new law cause you to fall for a scam. How the scam works: You receive a call from someone claiming to be from the federal government. The caller informs you you’ve been selected to receive insurance cards through the new Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). However, before he/she can mail your card, the caller needs to collect personal information. Scammers do a lot to make their requests seem credible. For example, they may have your bank’s routing number and ask you to provide your account number. Or, they may ask for your credit card or Social Security number, Medicare ID, or other personal information.

Sharing personal information with a scammer puts you at risk for identity theft. Scammers can use the information they obtain to open credit cards in your name or steal from your bank account.  How to spot a scam and protect yourself: Con artists are taking advantage of the confusion and buzz surrounding the Affordable Care Act implementation. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself: • Hang up; don’t press any buttons; and if you received a voice mail message, don’t call the scammer back. We all like to have the last word, but returning the phone call may just give the con artist information he can use. • The government typically doesn’t call, text or email. Government agencies normally communicate through the mail, so be very cautious of any unsolicited calls, text messages or emails you receive.

Also, if the government is contacting you, they should already have your basic personal information, such as your Social Security number. • Don’t trust Caller ID. Scammers have technology that lets them display any number or organization name on your screen. • There is only one place to shop for a qualified health plan: www. HealthCare.gov, which is run by the FTC’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Who is being targeted? Anyone can be the victim of this scam, but some groups are more likely to be targeted than others. The new law has special provisions for the following groups: • People 65 years or older • Persons with disabilities • Owners of small businesses More information on the ACA is available from the federal government’s Health Insurance Marketplace.

Students meeting standards drops SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) recently released 2013 state average test scores that showed Illinois elementary school students are  demonstrating growth in learning over the five-year trend under new performance levels. However, as expected following the board’s move to raise performance levels on the 2013 Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT), the number of students meeting and exceeding state standards dropped. These higher performance levels provide a more accurate and earlier indication of college and career readiness and better align with the expectations for 11th-graders who take the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE), which includes the ACT. The ACT is considered the gold standard for measuring college and career readiness. “By raising the ISAT cut scores in reading and math, we’ve seen the expected drop in student performance, but this drop does not reflect on students as a group or individuals – we raised the bar on performance levels,” said Illinois State Superintendent of Education Christopher A. Koch.  Students in third through eighth grades last March took the ISAT in reading and mathematics, which were subject to the raised performance levels, while fourth and seventh graders were also tested in science, which did not see a change in performance expectations as new science standards have not yet been approved.  Students in 11th grade last April took the PSAE, which tests students in math, reading and science. The statewide composite score for students meeting and exceeding standards on the ISAT dropped, going from 82.1 in 2012 to 61.9 in 2013. This decline is very similar to the projections Koch and board members made in January when they announced the higher cut scores. Analysis of previous ISAT composite scores for reading and math alone under the new cut scores shows that students demonstrated significant growth during the past five years, increasing overall performance on ISAT reading from 54.8 in 2009 to 59 in 2013. Analysis on ISAT math scores during that same five-year timeline shows an increase from 55.3 in 2009 to 58.7 in 2013.  The overall composite math and reading score increased from 55.1 in 2009 to 58.8 in 2013. The ISAT science composite score – not impacted by the raised cut scores — went from 79.8 in 2012 to 80.0 in 2013. The composite score for the PSAE, given to 11th-

graders, increased from 51.3 in 2012 to 51.9 in 2013. Performance level cut scores for the PSAE were not raised as the test includes the ACT. Prior to raising the cut scores, a disconnect existed between the ISAT and the higher expectations of the PSAE with 82 percent of students meeting or exceeding standards on the ISAT statewide in 2012, while only 51 percent met or exceeded standards on the PSAE that same year. Educators have wanted to remedy that disconnect by raising expectations earlier to provide a more accurate indication of whether a student is on track for post-secondary success. Jeff Mays, president of the Illinois Business Round Table, supports the state’s move to the Common Core Learning Standards and higher performance level cut scores, saying that both initiatives will promote a more serious and perhaps more urgent dialogue among schools within Illinois, and more importantly, between the school, parents and students about the level of achievement needed to meet the challenges before them. “By realigning all ISAT scoring expectations to those of the high school test (Prairie State Achievement ExamPSAE), the State Board of Education has signaled that all students and schools will be held to the same expectations,” Mays said. “This means that a large number of students and schools that met standards in 2012 will no longer be told they met standards on the Spring 2013 ISATs.” Student demographics and performance    • The number of districts declined from 891 in 2003 to 863 in 2013; there were 376 elementary districts, 100 high school districts and 387 unit districts. • In 2012-13, the total enrollment in Illinois public schools was 2,054,155, down more than 12,000 (12,537) students from 2012. • Since 1999, the percentage of low-income students has increased from 36.1 percent to 49.8 percent in 2013. • Minority enrollment increased from 38 percent in 1999 to 49.4 percent. The increase is attributed to the growth of the Hispanic student population, which increased from 13.9 percent in 1999 to 24.1 percent of all students in 2013. • The number of Limited-English Proficient (LEP) students increased from 6.3 percent in 2003 to 9.5 percent in 2013. LEP students include those who are eligible for bilingual education. Source: ISBE.

point of an adult who was once that boy, “Goat Mountain” takes readers through incredible beauty, lush views, and breathtaking landscapes, down into a sharp cone of grieved madness and brutality. It’s easy to think the boy is a brat; easier to think he’s a monster, but Vann teases out his storyline until we’re not really sure where evil lies or where it came from. I like that in a novel, and I loved this one. So pour yourself a cold one this week, settle

into your easy chair, and be ready to miss a lot of sleep. You’ve been waiting a long time for a novel that’ll capture your attention like this does, which makes “ Goat Mountain” the book to hunt for. Terri Schlichenmeyer is a book reviewer from West Salem, Wis. She may be contacted at
