Don’t count snowflakes until they fall By Donna Barker

PRINCETON — If Tuesday’s snowfall can be trusted, Bureau County residents could be facing an early winter. However, WQAD News Channel 8 meteorologist James Zahara isn’t counting any snowflakes until they fall. On Wednesday, Zahara said Tuesday’s early snowfall is no sure sign as to the extent, or timing, of this year’s winter season. It’s just too soon to tell, he said. “Any long-range outlook needs to be taken with a couple grains of cautionary salt,” the meteorologist said. Looking at temperatures and the likelihood of more snow in coming weeks, Zahara said there are a few key forecast models that keep temperatures fairly cool through early November before things gets pretty mild around midNovember. Afterwards, a sharp decline in temperatures takes place going into December, he said. Also, the current northwest flow may be a common occurrence going into December, Zahara said. A number of clippers will get caught in this flow bringing several rounds of light snow accumulations across the area as well, he said. “I would not be surprised if a developing system out of the Rockies, otherwise known to us as a Colorado Low, brings our first healthy batch of snow just before Christmas,” Zahara said. “Time will tell.” Looking back to Tuesday’s first measurable snowfall of the season, Zahara said the

One-on-one with the Affordable Care Act By Goldie Currie

SPRING VALLEY — Dan Eiten, an inperson counselor with the Bureau and Putnam Counties Health Department, knows the ins and outs of the Affordable Care Act. He is one of several who are hitting the streets and visiting public places to help educate citizens on what the new healthcare system offers and to bring assistance to people who once weren’t eligible for benefits now get enrolled for health coverage.

A huge change the ACA brings is the expanded coverage eligibility and income threshold, which will allow more people the opportunity to have health insurance. Open enrollment began Oct. 1 and goes until March 31. Citizens who enroll between now and Dec. 15 are expected to have benefits and Medicaid by Jan 1. People who enroll later than Dec. 15 will still receive coverage, but could face a waiting period after Jan 1 for it to kick-in. While there has been a lot of negative speculation about how the ACA will affect the healthcare system, Eiten believes

people forget the ACA was brought along to address issues that were in dire need of fixing. “It’s unfortunate that people seem to be more misinformed,” he said. “There’s too much bad information out there. In the hesitation, it seems like it has opened the door for all this misinformation speculation to kind of run wild.” Eiten explained the reason the new system seems tough to understand and take in is because Americans are coming from a “horribly complex healthcare system.”

PHS looks at improvement project By Donna Barker

Got milk? Concentration is the key as Ashleigh Tapanes learns how to carve a milk jug to create a Halloween skeleton during Thursday evening’s community program at the Princeton Public Library. Teacher Ron McCutchan supervised the carving of the milk jugs, which the library was recycling from its summer reading program igloo craft. Princeton Public Library is one of several area libraries hosting special Halloween parties and programs for their communities.

PRINCETON — Parking lot work, winter coaches and school visitors were among the topics discussed this week by the Princeton High School Board of Education. At Wednesday’s meeting, the board authorized Superintendent Kirk Haring to apply for school maintenance grant for the paving of the back parking lot between the school building and the football field. Haring said the state is again looking at awarding $50,000 school maintenance matching grants, which he would like to use for the parking lot paving work. The total cost of the project would be about $100,000-$120,000, with PHS paying its portion of the project through Life Safety funds. The work is expected to be done next summer. There is also a competitive $250,000 matching grant for which he would also like to apply, Haring said. He is working with architects on the science building roof project, as well as looking into other possible projects which could be funded with the help of the grant. Hopefully, he will have more definite information for the board at its November meeting, the superintendent said. In other business, the board made several personnel announcements for winter coaching positions. Appointed were Jesse Brandt, head boys’ basketball coach; Michael Fredericks and Eric Tinley, assistant boys’ basketball coaches, paid; Kevin Hieronymus, head girls’ basketball coach; Josie Gustafson and Heath Terando, assistant girls’ basketball coaches, paid; Ken Musselman and Ken Wilson, assistant girls’ basketball coaches, volunteers; Steve Amy, head wrestling coach; Jesse Snyder, assistant wrestling coach, paid; and Kevin Amy and Brian Taylor, assistant wrestling coaches, volunteers.

St. Patrick Church launches first activity in celebration of its 150th anniversary By Goldie Currie

ARLINGTON — To commemorate its 150th anniversary, St. Patrick Parish of Arlington will be launching a yearlong series of activities, starting with the sale of notecards and Christmas cards featuring the church’s prominent stained glass windows. The Sesquicentennial Committee recently invited Father Dominic Garramone, O.S.B., to photograph the church’s stained glass windows for the notecards. Garramone is known for his extensive experience in photographing church windows. According to committee member Ruth Pommier of Arlington, the windows have been widely recognized as among the finest in the Peoria Diocese. “The Arlington windows have long been recognized as one of the church’s greatest assets so with the 2013-14 year marking the sesquicentennial of the parish, it seemed like a good way to launch a number of activities we have planned to commemorate the important milestone in the history of our church,” she said. The history of St. Patrick’s stained glass windows is quite admirable as they were commissioned in the mid-1920s. The 20 windows in the set were designed and crafted by artists in the Tyrolese Art Glass Co. of Innsbruck, Austria. The church’s windows in the sanctuary were the creation of McLaughlin Co. and represent the Dublin School of Art. They were

Healthcare From Page 1A You can’t change a system this complex and this big and not expect a few problems,” he said. Eiten listed the three most urgent healthcare issues the ACA is expected to cure. “The changes to Medicaid will help address the issue of uncompensated care,” he said. “Prior, a person had to be low income and have a qualifying condition such as disability, blindness, pregnancy, etc.” Eiten said Medicaid reimbursement will increase to match Medicare, which will improve access to care for Medicaid recipients. The second issue ACA will address is the out of control healthcare costs. “Healthcare inflation is and has been two to three times regular inflation. Usually attributed to more healthcare resources being spent on aging baby boomers, people living longer and uncompensated care,” he said. The third issue ACA will conquer is the excessive

ACA scam alert! Eiten warns of the possible scams citizens may come in contact with when enrolling in the new healthcare system. He reminded no representative will ever go door-to-door asking for personal information. Also, citizens are encouraged to visit to find out information on the ACA. He said people should avoid visiting the Google search engine and typing in Affordable Care Act. “There are no shortage of imitators out there,” he said. Also, a representative will never collect money from citizens. “We won’t ever collect a premium. Nobody will ever collect a premium in cash,” he said. “I think the popular scam is someone knocks on the door and says I’m so and so can I sign you up and everyone is anxious to sign-up and give personal information and they ask for up front premium.” Don’t hand over money or personal information to a person going door-to-door. rules and regulations for insurance companies. “They can’t deny a persons coverage or charge them more because of a pre-existing condition. New rules say that insurance companies must spend 80 to 85 percent of your premiums on healthcare, not keeping it for profit or promotion,” Eiten said. Although the changes sound good, the transition to ACA won’t necessarily

be an easy one and is even expected to take at least two years to see how it really manifests. “Right now it’s a challenge. It’s even a challenge to be optimistic, because we’re coming from such a bad system,” Eiten said. “We spend about $8,500 per capita on healthcare. The next country on the list spends about $3,400 to $3,500, so we’re outspending per capital $5,000 and

our health outcome in the rankings is 25 or 30. So that extra spending doesn’t translate to better care.” As for now, a current challenge Eiten is coming face-to-face with is connecting with people of lower income or lower health literacy that don’t understand ACA will give them health coverage. “They see my pamphlet and understand in the past they weren’t eligible for things like Medicaid,” he said. “But that’s all changing. We’re trying to overcome that thought. “ Citizens are strongly encouraged to use social media websites like Facebook in order to connect with resources like their local health department, to find out how they can get in touch and signed-up with the ACA information. “We anticipate spending most of out time outside the office,” he said. “We will be taking our laptops to libraries, community centers, village halls, you name it. We’re going to be working hard to help people sign up within their community.” Comment on this story at

center and administrative offices. The athletic complex will comprise two gymnasiums, weight training and fitness room, locker rooms and a concession area. The performing arts center will feature a theatre and stage with a high-end sound and recording system. An art lab, kiln room, dark room, set design area, and cafeteria with kitchen area also part of the plans. The new high school will be built with several sustainable energy features such as permeable pavers, bioswales for storm water management, daylight harvesting and occupancy sensors. The public is invited to attend.

Be safe this Halloween By Donna Barker

Harvest in Bureau County came to an abrupt halt Tuesday morning as rain and then snow stopped combines in their tracks. Tuesday’s precipitation kept many farmers out of the fields even on Wednesday.

Locally, the Princeton Water Treatment Plant recorded a total of 1.5 inches of snow during Tuesday’s snowfall. Though the National Weather Service may not be too dogmatic when it comes predicting the coming winter season, the creators of the Farm-

Also, the Annawan School District will send three teachers on Nov. 22 to observe PHS classroom teachers, as part of Annawan’s staff development day, Berlinski said. The staff will be sent to science, social studies and art classes and paired up with teachers in those departments.

“They have requested this opportunity to observe and network with our teachers as they have heard many great things about our staff,” Berlinski said. Board member Stephanie Van Ordstrand brought up the validity of continuing the Saturday detention program since not all the students show up for the Saturday detention. Haring said Saturday detention is something that is reviewed each year. If a student misses

a Saturday detention, the student is then given an in-school suspension, which some students seem to prefer since the student doesn’t have to get up early on a Saturday morning, Haring said. Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the board recognized Natalie Vujanov, J.J. Vaccaro, Bryann Williams, Jacob Reinhardt, Sarah Crowe and Zach Bogatitus as October Students of the Month.

PRINCETON — State officials are urging motorists to not forget safety as they celebrate the Halloween weekend and the holiday itself. The Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois State Police have joined efforts to issue a simple Halloween message for drivers: “Don’t be tricked into drunk driving this Halloween.” In a joint statement issued Friday, Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider said Halloween revelers should be aware their Halloween disguises will not make them invisible to police, who will crack down on drunk drivers and safety belt law violators throughout the state on and around Halloween. “This Halloween, don’t be tricked into thinking you are OK to drive if you celebrate with alcohol,” Schneider said. “A sober and safe ride after the party is the best treat you can give yourself and everyone else on the road this Halloween, and it’s the only way to avoid a DUI

arrest if you drink and drive.” According to data collected by IDOT and ISP, 20 people lost their lives during the last five years (20082012) in motor vehicle crashes during the Halloween holiday, and another 1,284 individuals were injured. Of the 20 fatalities, seven occurred in crashes involving alcohol. Four people in Illinois died in Halloween traffic crashes last year, with two of those individuals dying in crashes that involved alcohol. In looking ahead to this year’s Halloween parties and celebrations, Schneider said there are some simple safety tips to follow to avoid impaired driving accidents: • Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin. • Before drinking, designate a sober driver. • If you drink too much, call a sober friend or family member, call a taxi or use public transportation to get home safely. • If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1 or contact local law enforcement.

OHIO — The Ohio Grade School Board met in regular session on Oct. 15 and conducted the following business: • Approved the agenda as presented, minutes of the Sept. 25 regular meeting and budget hearing as presented, treasurer’s report and bills and payroll. • After discussion with board members, it was decided to wait until January to do board training. • Approved the submission of the 2014 school library per capita grant application. • Reviewed and accepted the fiscal year 2013 audit. • Superintendent Sharon Sweger felt the committee for one-on-one computing needed to meet again before any action can be taken. Someone did ask about insurance for the computers and Sweger explained parents will have different options of insurance to purchase. • In Sweger’s report, she said current enrollment is 84 students. In the last month, the school picked up two new kindergartners. Sweger is getting a price for replacing the caps on top of the building. The roofer recently visited the school and said water could be penetrating the building through the deteriorated caps. Sweger is pursuing two state grants. Sweger has contacted the schools’ architect to see about including the remaining windows on life safety to assist with this grant. The energy grant is up to $250,000. Also, scoreboards should be arriving soon. Sweger ordered new mats, which go below the baskets on each end of the gym. The schools’ current mats are in bad shape. Sweger was able to get the scoreboard cost down enough to pay for the mats. • Principal Jason Wilt reported boys basketball begins this week with the annual Malden tournament. Coach Albrecht has 15 boys and coach Ryan has seven girls. The school did bring up some fifth graders for cheerleading due to low numbers. Also, the girls volleyball team ended up tying for first in the conference with Bureau Valley South and second at the conference tournament. Coach Patrick Anderson and all the girls had a great season. Wilt also went through information concerning AYP scores. The information will not be released by the state until Oct. 30, but he explained the new scoring system and what it did to the schools’ scores and scores throughout the state. Jordan Olson and Barbara Mead have been working with Wilt on Response to Intervention. These teachers pull students out of a study hall one at a time and work one-on-one with them. This seem to be very beneficial to the students. • The school conducted an earthquake drill on Oct. 17. The next regular school board meeting in scheduled at 7 p.m. Nov. 19 in the school library.

IVCC audit-finance and facilities committees OGLESBY — Students attending Illinois Valley Community College in the fall of 2015 will have much more life space to enjoy in the soon-to-be vacated counseling area. The IVCC board’s audit-finance and facilities committees met separately Oct. 22 to discuss phase 3 renovation plans for areas vacated by departments moving

into the new Peter Miller Community Technology Center. As counseling moves into second floor offices in the William and Dian Taylor Student Development Commons next month, its former E-building area will be transformed into a 3,000-square-foot area for students to gather, relax and play games. Conversion of the area, to include an elevator for accessibility, is estimated at $615,000. The estimated $1.1 million in phase 3 work will be completed by October 2015, said Cheryl Roelfsema, vice president for Business Services and Finance. Other plans include: • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) classrooms and lab going into the lower level D-building area now occupied by electronics. • CETLA (the faculty’s Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning and Assessment) going into the former Dislocated Workers Center offices. • Jacobs Library filling in the area currently housing the cashier’s office in the main lobby. • Forensics lab and classroom moving to the area currently home to electronics and computer networking in lower level D. The audit/finance committee also reviewed the audit and tax levy, a high-deductible health plan and plans to waive tuition and fees for part-time employees who enroll in fitness center courses. Auditor Randy Ragan of McGladrey said IVCC received an “unmodified opinion – the best opinion you can get” for its 2013 audit. Regarding the levy, IVCC anticipates a 2.5 percent decline in assessed valuation for 2013 for an estimated EAV of $2.98 billion. It is anticipated the total tax rate will be .3663, an increase of 3.6 percent over 2012. Anticipated tax extensions for the year are $117,194 higher than 2012 but $126,714 less than 2011. Pending full board approval, IVCC will submit an $11.2 million levy to the county clerks at the end of December. With an increase of less than five percent over 2012, it will not require public notice or a public hearing, Roelfsema said. The 2013 audit will be presented to the full board at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 19. The committee also reviewed a plan to offer full-time employees high-deductible health insurance in addition to the two current plans. For employees choosing the high-deductible option, IVCC could offer a health savings account (HSA) with suggested annual contributions of $2,000 for employee-only coverage, $3,000 for employee plus one, and $5,000 for family coverage. The facilities committee reviewed an insurance firm’s audit of the softball and baseball fields to determine potential areas of liability. The administration then presented the committee with its plan to address those areas. Significant improvements are being made to the softball field including new dugouts being built by local union carpenters facilitated by the Building Trades Council with material provided by Western Sand and Gravel, Maze Lumber, Cyclops Welding and others. With the baseball field in need of major repair, IVCC’s team will play its games at Dickinson Field in Oglesby this spring under contract with the city.

This, that and the odder ... Halloween is coming up quickly, and my siblings have been planning their costumes for months. Besides the candy, what makes Halloween so exciting is that you get to pretend to be anything for one night, and you don’t worry about looking like a fool doing it. Let’s face it, many adults get into it too. My brother, Simeon, has wanted to be a terrorist for months. He has an image in his head about what a terrorist is. My parents have spent much time trying to explain to Simeon that a terrorist is a behavior not a COMMENTARY character. He has replaced his original plan with wanting to be a zombie. His excitement for being a zombie begins with him getting to rip up a T-shirt. He has had a T-shirt picked out for a month and just can’t wait to start the ripping process. Another reason he really wants to be a zombie is so he can have fake blood all over him. We had some company over the other day, and Simeon, who always needs to show-off, came running outside telling my mom that there had been an accident with a knife and he needed help. It was obvious by the strong odor of ketchup that he was faking. He had ketchup smeared all up his arm and on his neck. I asked Justus what he wanted to be for Halloween, and he said he wants to be a girl. He said, “A girl is the scariest thing you can be on Halloween.” I explained to him that I was going to write about this for a column, and he quickly changed his mind and decided to be Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison or Elvis. He wants to be one of these people, so he can walk around with his guitar all night and play for people. I think he likes the attention he gets after he plays a song for people because he is pretty good at guitar.  Maybe I will suggest he set up shop on a corner somewhere and put out a hat for collections. And please, somebody ask the poor kid for his autograph. Faustina is the most stubborn with Halloween costumes. Not that long ago she participated in the Bureau County Fair talent show. She sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and talked my grandma into making her a Dorothy costume. Of course, the outfit would not be complete for Faustina unless she had red ruby slippers. When my mom told her they were too much money, she persuaded our friend Lynn to buy them.  All along, it was understood that Dorothy would be her Halloween costume. After the talent show was over, I told Faustina she had a perfect most adorable Halloween costume, but she no longer agreed. Dorothy was a thing of the past for Faustina. She had her ruby slippers, which are now well worn and would not dream of being Dorothy for Halloween. Instead, the girl wants to be a cowgirl or Indian. Patience is too young to get the idea of Halloween but what she loves more then anything is to copy all of her older siblings. We have two huge buckets of costumes put away in the old hog house. My mom usually gets the buckets out about noon on Halloween, and the fun begins. Patience loves anything she calls “pretty princess,” so I am guessing she will decide on a fancy dress. However this is usually because she is copying Faustina. If Faustina isn’t a princess, I don’t know what she will choose. The original idea was for her to be a lion to go with Dorothy, but that is out the window. My brother, Milo, is really into knights and anything with weapons. Not really guns, but swords, axes ... well heck, I don’t know what they are all called. For as long as I can remember, he has chosen his Christmas presents based on what the guy is using for his weapon. My mom has screwed up many times getting him the wrong guy because they all look alike to her. So, Milo wants to be a

Defeating the enemies within I always thought overcoming a fear was like unlocking a level in a video game. Once you passed this level, you would never have to return to fight off the same enemies within you and around you. And you would no longer find yourself stuck searching for a magical sword that destroyed all of your insecurities and worries. Those days would be over because right now you have been brave. Today will be the start of what you always wanted your life to be. No more fears, no more struggles. And when I realized I had this idea, I asked myself why I wanted to believe this could be true. And to be honest, this is where my hypothesis falls apart. I want to trust that being confident and brave is a one-time struggle. Going backwards and struggling with the same fears should not be an option. If I learned how to maneuver through those obstacles before, I want to believe I should never have to be stuck in the same ruts again. I should not have to face my fear again. Those days should be over. I should feel better. I should know better now. One of my biggest fears is taking on a project without a guarantee that things will work out. I get scared thinking of wasting time

Kathy Tun COMMENTARY and effort on a failed project. And that fear of failure comes from another fear that people would then see me as a failure. So then I get too scared to start any project. A few years ago I found out I had this destructive tendency to let fear get in the way. This actually thrilled me because this discovery meant I was at a magical opportunity to unlock a new level in my life. The threshold of confidence and happiness seemed to be over on the other side of a dense forest filled with angry wildlife. And if I could pass this stage in my life, I would never have to return to my fear again. All I needed was to find a magical sword. And so I went searching to find exactly what I needed to overcome my fear. I set out with a grocery list of finding my swords of strength and inspiration from the people around me and from within myself. My project was to write at least one article to a local newspaper. I had never done anything like it before, and I could only imagine the rough journey

it would be to finish this project. The dense forest was incredibly relentless, but somehow I made it through. I finished the article after about two days and sent it. A week later, I was notified it would be published, making me believe I had finally gained citizenship in the land of confidence and bravery. With great sadness, I must tell you I didn’t stay in that land for long. My success made me even more afraid of never living up to that same level of achievement. For weeks I avoided writing another article. Here was fear creeping back into my head like a regular customer at a coffee shop. I instinctively handed fear its latte and comfortably slipped into a conversation with it. “Why?” I asked. “Why did you come back? I specifically remember that I defeated you in the forest.” The thing with fear is that is doesn’t actually talk back to you. It just kind of looks at you in a taunting way. “Yeah I came back,” it seems to say. “Now it’s your move again.” Kathy Tun of Spring Valley is a sophomore at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington.

TO Letters THE Editor

Honoring pro bono attorneys To the Editor, Attorneys are often maligned by the public. Jokes can be easy to make and are oftentimes even funny. As in all professions, a few bad apples often form public opinion. It thus may come as a surprise to many there are a significant number of lawyers who not only care, but also donate their time and services without compensation. A goodly portion come from our own community. I know. As a retired local judge, I have among other things taken a position as volunteer pro bono coordinator for Prairie State Legal Services in Ottawa. For the five counties of LaSalle, Grundy, Lee, Bureau and Putnam, I try to obtain private volunteer attorneys for those lowincome persons the local office cannot handle. Prairie State in Ottawa has two full-time attorneys. They are Donald Dirks and Jean Fletcher. There is a fantastic nonlawyer staff of three others. I mention all of these people now because they deserve recognition. They are Jane Berry, Chris Weygand and Amanda Abens.

Don, Jean and all the staff work hard and are dedicated. They, however, cannot represent all of the many needy in five geographically large counties. To help fill the void, I now have asked the local private attorneys to help provide free pro bono services when and where needed. The public should know that a large number of private counsel have answered the call to help. I cannot name them all, but the legal community knows who they are. These attorneys, often overworked themselves, find the time to give back. They help countless people in need who would otherwise have no representation. It is with them in mind during this week of the Pro Bono Attorney, that I and the people at Prairie State thank and congratulate them for their selfless

efforts. There are all kinds of lawyers. You represent the best of our profession. Thanks again. James L. Brusatte Retired judge Ottawa

Take a stand against RICL To the Editor, A group of dedicated volunteers has been driving the country side trying to inform landowners and residents of an issue that threatens their rights and pocket books. Rock Island Clean Line (RICL), a private Texas investor group, plans to construct a DC high voltage transmission line across Iowa and Illinois. Their 200-foot easement in the 500-mile path crosses prime farm land in the area. RICL is in the process of applying for public utility

knight, ninja or anything with a sword. I am not sure where he is getting the sword because my mom swears she isn’t spending anything for the costumes. I think there might be one up above the kitchen cabinets. That is where my mom throws things when she gets frustrated with a toy that is causing problems. Brush off the dust, and it will be good as new. After all these kids, my mom has come to hate this holiday. The costumes are so expensive and cause so many problems in the house. She has wanted us for years to put on hard hats, neon green

status through the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC). Due to the overflow crowd at the Sept. 18 open forum, the ICC has scheduled a second forum at 7 p.m. Monday at the Mendota High School Gym. ICC scheduled the event but it is up to us to notify the public. It is important to show the ICC our united support against the RICL’s unneeded project. This will most likely be the last chance the public can make verbal comments. This is also an opportunity to submit a written statement. The ICC docket number 12-0560. If the ICC grants public utility status this private group will seize land through eminent domain. We must not let a private group gain possession of personal land. We must protect our natural resources, our fertile land. This is just the first of many transmission projects proposed to crisscross the area with no coordinated plan, and it will set precedence. We must let it be known to the ICC our views on RICL (see http:// website). We must pack the gym. This is an opportunity to make a stand. Jeannette Carothers Earlville

Benefit raises $10,000 for Living Works HENRY — The Larry Klein Memory Ride and Benefit for Living Works was held Aug. 24 at the River Valley Bowl in Henry. On Oct. 7, Klein’s daughter, Tracy Wright, presented checks in the amount of $10,000 to the Living Works Board at its monthly meeting. Larry was a life-long resident of Henry and a business owner for more than 40 years. He owned and operated Klein’s Standard Amoco for many years, until September 1991 when he purchased River Valley Bowl with his wife, Donna. After his death last year, his family knew they wanted to plan some sort of event in his memory. “Several years ago, there was a large poker run that stopped at River Valley Bowl, and I can still remember my dad stand-

ing outside in awe of all the bikes. It was shortly afterward that he bought a Harley,” recalls Wright. The family hadn’t discussed much about an event until Wright participated in the Living Works Suicide Walk in June. Then the pieces really came together. “It seemed so fitting to have a ride in my dad’s memory that could benefit others. My dad had a huge heart and always helped anyone who needed it,” Wright said. “Our family lived through a nightmare this past year, and if we could carry on his tradition of helping others, this would be it.” With her mom’s blessing, Wright contacted Chris Compton with Living Works, and the rest — as they say — is history. From there, the entire family got involved. A Facebook event page

I think we were content winning regional,” said Lorenzen looking back at last year’s 7-1 sectional semifinal defeat to HinckleyBig Rock at Mendota. “I think we just need to work on our mental game and work together and practice hard.” Lorenzen’s first goal was simply ridiculous. He spotted up for a free kick on the 40-yard line marker of the football field and the ball incredibly found its way into the back of the net underneath the grasps of Mendota keeper Jesus Delao. Lorenzen was just as surprised as everyone else to see it go in. “It got a lucky bounce on it. It’s just with the turf, especially it was really wet, the ball was really bouncing awkward,” he said. “I don’t know if we had the goalie shielded, and he just didn’t see the ball. It wasn’t a hard hit ball. I was surprised to see it go through the line and real surprised to see it hit the back of the net,” Bird said. Lorenzen struck again at the 35:14 mark of the second half, following up a carom on a shot by teammate Dylan Schaefer. “I think Dylan Schaefer shot it. It was a hard shot, close so the keeper bobbled it and I was able to put it back in,” Lorenzen said. Princeton dodged several bullets early. Mendota had back-to-back shots hit off the post and the cross bar in the first two minutes of the game. PHS keeper Lucas Bauer and sweeper Drew Pranka both made diving saves in the early going. Bird said the Tigers made some muchneeded halftime adjustments and played better defensively in the second half. “First half we lost our shape quite a bit. Seemed like we were scrambling and little flustered, and the second half we came out second and did a better job,” he said, noting they have “a lot of things” to tweak for Saturday. The Trojans outshot the Tigers 10-9 with Bauer making eight saves on goal. Bird said the Tigers took a much stronger

The guys were mentally done,” he said. “They achieved their goal and we came in and got beat by a better team, but we laid an egg and didn’t have much effort. This year’s team got their goals set on bigger things. This is just another step.” • Tiger tales: The Tigers worked out indoors again on the gym floor Thursday to help simulate the quicker playing surface of the artificial turf at Mendota.

Area roundup


From Page 9A will get together on Saturday to watch the pairings. The Steamers will be on the lower end of playoff points among five-win teams and are hoping for luck to be on their side. “It doesn’t look good,” Lower said. “We need a lot of help. We are going to plan on being in until they tell us we are not. Hopefully, things go our way and we can sneak in there.” Fulton (5-4, 3-3) never trailed in Friday’s game against the Storm (3-6, 2-4) and after taking a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, they lit up the scoreboard for 48 points in the middle two quarters to secure the win. Austin Regenwether ran for four touchdowns (23, 29, 4, 15) and totaled a gamehigh 183 yards rushing, putting him over 2,000 yards on the ground for his career. His second and third touchdown runs of the game came in the final six minutes of the first half and gave the Steamers some breathing room going into the break, turning a 13-7 lead into a three-possession game. Fulton then put the game out of reach early in the third quarter. After electing for a re-kick after Tommy Johnston’s second half kick-off went out of bounds, Jason Osborn took Johnston’s second try for 83 yards up the middle and into the end zone. “They made us re-kick and we got the ball up in the air a little too much and (Osborn) took it back,” said Storm coach Jeff Ohlson. “It’s a situation where we didn’t do the things we needed to do.” The Steamers weren’t done, scoring two


From Page 9A enough playoff points (opponents wins) to make it it. It was tough sledding for both the Tigers and the Bruins for all but a few moments in the game. The teams traded possessions for most of the first half. The game was scoreless until the Bruins found the end zone on a 34-yard Jack Brady to Sam Halm pass with less than a minute left in the half. The Bruins failed to convert on the extra point and the Tigers chose to take it into the locker room and talk things over. The third quarter was not a big improvement for either squad as they each held the ball three times and came away with nothing. Early in the fourth quarter, Tiger quarterback Clayton Bjustrom found his favorite target, tight end Lucas Boraas, with a

Devin Kuehl scored two of his three touchdowns in the third quarter and, along with Regenwether, went over the century mark on the ground with 141 yards rushing. Quarterback Ethan Jones added 76 yards on seven carries. The Storm’s two scores came on a second quarter 16-yard touchdown pass from Parker Neuhalfen to Jake Smith and a 28-yard touchdown run by Johnston in the fourth quarter. Johnston led the Storm running game with 96 yards on 13 carries. • Fulton won the sophomore contest, 58-0. Comment on this story at

6-yard touchdown pass. The Tigers hit the extra point and things looked grim for the Bruins though they were only down 7-6. St. Bede responded with more erratic offense and nearing the end of the fourth quarter the Tigers were threatening again. That’s when Bjustrom made a regrettable throw that landed in the waiting hands of Justin Shaw. Shaw took the interception back 85 yards to put the Bruins back in control 14-7. A little over one minute later the Tigers were back in business with 1:50 left in the game. Running back Nathan Kelly punched it in and the Tigers had their one-point lead back, 15-14. The Bruins came out with enough time to make something happen but quarterback Jack Brady threw the ball into a crowd of defenders and the Tigers ran out the clock to seal the win.

‘We Care’

BCR photo/Goldie Currie

Quiet day at the elevator Jack Hoscheid, of the Ladd Elevator Co., watches the steam roll from the grain dryers earlier this week during the season’s first snow fall — which came earlier than expected. The bizarre weather halted farmers in the midst of harvest season and quieted the usual bustle at the elevator during this time of year.

Agricultural summary Corn and soybean harvest were in full swing across the state last week with corn harvest progressing to 51 percent complete and soybean harvest progressing to 68 percent complete. Temperatures averaged 51.2 degrees for the week, 2.6 degrees below normal. Precipitation across the state averaged .043 inches, 0.29 inches below normal. There were 5.7 days suitable for fieldwork. Topsoil moisture was rated at 21 percent very short, 44 percent short, 34 percent adequate and 1 percent sur-

plus. Subsoil moisture was rated at 25 percent very short, 42 percent short and 33 percent adequate. Ninety-seven percent of the corn crop was mature, compared to 100 percent last year and the five-year average of 96 percent. Corn harvest reached 51 percent complete, compared to 91 percent last year and the five-year average of 61 percent. Corn condition was rated at 2 percent very poor, 6 percent poor, 24 percent fair, 47 percent good and 21 percent excellent. Soybeans turning yellow reached

99 percent. Soybeans dropping leaves reached 97 percent, just below the five-year average of 98 percent. Sixty-eight percent of the soybean crop has been harvest, compared to 78 percent last year and the five-year average of 67 percent. Soybean condition was rated at 2 percent very poor, 7 percent poor, 29 percent fair, 52 percent good and 10 percent excellent. Sixty-eight percent of the wheat crop has been planted and 24 percent has emerged. Pasture conditions were rated at 12 percent very

The National Pork Board and the National Pork Producers Council have worked together to develop a code of ethics called “We Care” for producers to adopt and use in training employees, truck drivers, mill operators and others. Somehow we ended up with a clipboard at the farm that states the six “Ethical Principles for U.S. Pork Producers.” This clipboard reminds me everyday of the importance of making these six principles real to myself and everyone that is involved in our operation. I would like to share these six principles with you. I think this is an example of the dedication that modern pork producers and all of production agriculture have toward the end user, the community and the products they are producing. The principles of the We Care program are: 1. Produce safe food 2. Protect and promote animal well-being 3. Ensure practices to protect public health

Steve Cowser COMMENTARY 4. Safeguard national resources in all of our practices 5. Provide a work environment that is safe 6. Contribute to a better quality of life in our communities I pledge myself to practicing these six principles in our operation and to teaching those principles to our staff. This is another example of the effort that pork producers put into self regulation. The “We Care” effort supports the Pork Quality Assurance Plus program that I talked about in my previous column. Most pork producers accept and practice these six principles everyday. We do care about out customers, animals, the public, natural resources, employees and community. Steve Cowser is a pork producer in the Bradford area.

Women: Could your pain be fibromyalgia? (StatePoint) — With its confusing overlap of symptoms, fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) can be a nightmare for the 5 million Americans — 90 percent of them women — who suffer from it. Although the set of symptoms will vary from patient to patient, having two or more of the most common symptoms might justify a trip to your doctor to get checked out and learn more about the condition. If you’re among those who have FM, or suspect you might be among them, then getting accurate information is the first step toward an effective course of treatment. “Don’t be afraid to speak up — your symptoms may not be

a coincidence,” said Dr. Seth Lederman, physician and CEO of Tonix Pharmaceuticals, a company developing treatments for FM pain. Here are five basic questions to ask your doctor to get a firm grip on understanding your FM: • What is FM? Your doctor will explain how FM encompasses a range of symptoms that can include pain all over your body, sleep problems, fatigue, memory problems, (“fibro-fog”) and many others. Additionally, common FM symptoms may encompass recurrent headaches, tingling and digestive problems. • Can exercise offer pain relief? It seems like a contradiction, but some research suggests that hitting the gym and getting

regular exercise may produce relief from FM pain. Your doctor may say it is OK to exercise through your “normal” pain levels, but if exercise causes the pain to worsen significantly, back off. • How can I sleep better? Your doctor will likely explain what you might already suspect: Sleep quality plays a major role in the severity of FM symptoms. Many FM patients report a lack of restful sleep. Studies have shown this is due to increased brain vigilance at the time when the deepest sleep cycle should be occurring. With an eye on helping FM patients with sleep problems, New York-based Tonix Pharmaceuticals is reformulating an



existing muscle relaxant called cyclobenzaprine into a low-dose under-the-tongue tablet taken at bedtime. Tonix is testing its drug in a study this year. Ask your doctor about participating in the clinical trial called BESTFIT. For more information, visit www. • Where does my pain originate? Although in a prior era FM patients came under the care of rheumatologists, this view has since evolved. Your doctor will tell you that FM is a disorder of the central nervous system. • Can my diet help my symptoms? No diet, no matter how well planned, will “cure” fibromyalgia. But your doctor may point out that a diet rich in antioxidants (e.g., full of fruits

and vegetables) can help maximize health by minimizing the level of oxidative stress that can occur in the body’s tissues. For more information, visit www. Don’t grin and bear signs of FM. Schedule a doctor’s visit to determine the cause of your symptoms.

Questions to ask your doctor about diabetes and pain (StatePoint) — The numbers are staggering — 25.8 million people, representing 8.3 percent of the U.S. population, have diabetes, according to the most recent data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s one in every 12 people, and the numbers may have soared even higher since these statistics were gathered. For those living with the disease, preventing and treating complications associated with diabetes is critical. One serious complication is diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), which affects 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes. Since those with DPN don’t generally experience symptoms at first, it often goes undiagnosed until the condition worsens. “If left untreated, diabetic neuropathies can cause disabling chronic

pain, increase the risk of falling in the elderly and trigger foot ulcers that may even require amputation,” warns Shai Gozani, CEO of NeuroMetrix, a medical device company that develops home use and point-of-care devices for the treatment and management of diabetic neuropathies. The American Diabetes Association recommends getting an annual screening to detect DPN before it leads to Painful Diabetic Neuropathy (PDN). Ask your doctor about a new fast and accurate test, DPNCheck, which may aid in the early detection and confirmation of DPN. “With proper, early clinical intervention, more positive outcomes are possible,” Gozani said. Unfortunately, despite best efforts, many people with diabetes will develop PDN and require additional therapy. “Staying on top of symp-

toms and their causes is important for early diagnosis and prompt treatment of PDN,” says Gozani. Gozani advises those living with diabetes who are wondering if they have PDN to ask themselves if they have any of these symptoms: • Burning, stabbing or shooting pain in your feet or legs. • Pain when you walk, as though you are walking barefoot on marbles or hot sand. • A persistent achy feeling in your feet. • Pain in your feet or legs that makes falling asleep and waking up difficult. • Pain in your feet or legs that makes you depressed or anxious. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment with your health care provider to get a proper diagnosis. Your doctor may

prescribe medications that can help control the pain. Be sure to ask your health care provider about emerging chronic pain relief options, which provide non-narcotic, nonaddictive complements to pain medications. These include the SENSUS Pain Management System, an electrical nerve stimulator that is lightweight, wearable under clothing and the first of its kind to be cleared by the Food and Drug Administration to be used during sleep. Since many patients with PDN report trouble falling and staying asleep, a fast acting treatment that can be worn during sleep is a much needed solution. More information about early detection of DPN and safely treating PDN can be found at Don’t ignore the potential complications of diabetes and don’t wait until

you’re experiencing symptoms. Early detection and subsequent treatment can

help you manage conditions that can be debilitating and painful.

Hot cooking trends for cool weather foods (BPT) — With the return of cool autumn weather, our thoughts turn to warm, comforting foods. But cold-weather cooking needn’t be dull. This year, take your menu cues from restaurant and cooking trends to create fun fall foods your entire

family will enjoy. Locally sourced meats and seafood were cited as the No. 1 trend in restaurants, according to the National Restaurant Association (NRA) annual survey of professional chefs. Visit your neighborhood butcher or

the locally grown section at your grocer for the freshest cuts and catches for meals with the fullest flavor, from slow-roasted beef to hearty stews and creamy seafood chowders. And everyday green vegetables are popping up on menus in

Make realistic resolutions to lose weight (StatePoint) — Millions of Americans resolve to lose weight and commit to healthful eating at the beginning of each year, but many resolutions are notoriously broken. Why? Many registered dietitian nutritionists say that fad diets are partly to blame. “It’s tempting to focus on losing weight fast, which can lead many to turn to dangerous fads and crash diets,” said registered dietitian nutritionist and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics spokesperson, Jessica Crandall. “However, research shows that slow, healthy weight loss is more likely to last than dramatic weight changes.” Crandall says that forgetting fad diets and getting back to the basics of moving more and eating smarter are your best bets for success in losing weight. Be Realistic, Be Specific “Planning to hit the gym for four hours every day or stick to a super restrictive fad diet is overwhelming for your body and mind,” Crandall said. “Instead, choose smaller, healthy changes you can stick to over the long term. One large goal can seem

overwhelming. Instead, build a plan that works for your unique nutritional needs and lifestyle, A registered dietitian nutritionist can help you develop a plan that’s right for you. Here are some challenging, reachable resolutions to consider: • Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. • Make at least half of the grains you eat whole grains. • Get active! Fit in physical activity where you can in your day, whether taking a family walk after dinner or hitting the gym. • Serve regular, balanced meals and snacks with a variety of nutrientrich foods. Also, make sure the goals you set are measurable, so that you can easily review and track your
