Friends of Strays receives grant By Goldie Currie email@example.com.
PRINCETON — The Friends of Strays no-kill animal shelter recently was awarded a $1,500 grant from the Build-ABear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation. The monies will be used to assist low income individuals and senior citizens in getting their animals spayed and neutered. Linda Sullivan, a Friends of Strays Board Member, said the shelter was very fortunate to receive the grant and encouraged eligible residents to take advantage of the opportunity. Friends of Strays holds a low income spay and neuter clinic the second Monday of each month at the shelter, which is located behind the Road Ranger Truck Stop. “It’s very important to have pets spayed and neutered,” said Sullivan. “This grant gives people a chance who maybe normally can’t afford to have their pet spayed or neutered at regular costs.” She explained the surgical process helps prevent health issues in animals, especially in male cats and dogs, who can be more prone to things like cancer when not neutered. Also, the process cuts down on unwanted cats and dogs. Sullivan explained Friends of Strays, along with most animals shelters in the area, are full and cannot handle anymore animals, therefore having cats and dogs spayed or neutered helps prevent overcrowding in shelters. The regular price range for low income individuals to have their pets spayed or neuter ranges from $40 to $65, depending on the sex and type of animal, according to Sullivan. Friends of Strays encourages anyone interested in using the grant opportunity to contact the shelter at 815-872-7387.

SV connects with Italian sister city Sister city mayor plans a December visit to Spring Valley By Goldie Currie firstname.lastname@example.org
SPRING VALLEY — Earlier this year, Spring Valley City Council passed a resolution declaring Comune Di Montecreto, Modena, Italy, a sister city to Spring Valley. The resolution states there is a historical link between the two cities, through its heritage of Italian emigrant families emanating from Montecreto to Spring Valley between 1890 and 1915.
The link between this significant information was discovered by Giliola Burgoni of Acquaria Di Montecreto. Burgoni is a distant cousin of Amber Dhesse of Spring Valley. According to Spring Valley Economic Development Director Debb Ladgenski, the sister cities relationship began in July 2012, when Burgoni sent Dhesse historical research she had compiled, which included a large number of residents from Montecreto who immigrated to Spring Valley and surrounding communities to work in the mines.
After receiving the information, Dhesse contacted Ladgenski and asked about the opportunity of establishing the sister cities relationship. Dhesse and Burgoni are descendants of the Fiocchi family, who originated in the Modenese Appenines and migrated to the Spring Valley/Ladd area between 1890s and 1920s. “The main reason I think Spring Valley and Acquaria Di Montecreto should be entitled in realizing this project is to create new opportunities for cultural and international

Getting the bargains Stephen Mazzarise loads up his car with his Black Friday purchases. Mazzarise was among the dozens of area shoppers hitting the stores early Friday for the Christmas holiday sales. Other shoppers got a jump start on their shopping on Thursday when some stores began their holiday sales on Thanksgiving Day. The National Retail Federation has projected retail sales to reach $602.1 billion during the last two months of this year, which is a slight increase from last year.
PRINCETON — It’s tax levy time for Princeton Elementary School District. At Monday’s meeting, Superintendent Tim Smith presented the tentative tax levy for the 2013 year, payable in 2014. The district is requesting $6,666,342 in property taxes for the new year, compared to $6,429,700 extended in the 2012 year. The tentative tax rate would be 2.79, compared to a tax rate of 2.74 for the 2012 year. Smith said the Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) for the district is projected at $238,267,850, which is a slight increase from the 2012 EAV of the $233,825,172. The projected EAV represents a 1.9 percent increase which is put in place to capture any possible growth which might occur. However, Bureau County Assessor Tom Sweeney has said it’s not likely there will be any realized growth, which means the district would receive about the same revenue as in the previous year, Smith said. The appreciating value of farmland is the only thing which is helping the district to stay even in its EAV, Smith said. Commercial, industrial and residential values are hurting the district. When the EAV is less, then the district has to make a greater effort with its tax rate, he said. After further review and board approval, the tentative tax levy has been placed on review by the public. In other financial news, Smith said the state of Illinois is behind a total of $374,751 in its payments for the education and transportation funds for this fiscal year. Of that amount, the state owes $270,003 in the education fund, which includes $145,257 in the Early Childhood Block Grant. In transportation, the state owes $104,748 to the district. In personnel action, the board approved the resignation of Lisa Bettner as the secretary at Reagan Middle School and then hired Paula Ward to fill the Reagan secretary position. The board also hired Corinne Thomas as a special education aide at Reagan to fill the position vacated by Ward moving into the secretarial position. Comment on this story at www. bcrnews.com.

Wilkin announces candidacy for treasurer’s office OHIO — Rick Wilkin, of the village of Ohio, has announced his candidacy to seek the Democratic nomination for the office of Bureau County treasurer. “I am running to bring greater transparency to the county’s finances. Financial information presented at Bureau County Board meetings is public record and should be easily accessible to all county residents,” he said. “The technology exists to allow our citizens easy access. We should use it. I have the knowledge and dedication to ensure that Bureau County residents are given that access. “I believe it is the job of elected officials to ensure that voters are provided with the information they need in order to make well-informed decisions.” While a member of the Bureau County Board, Wilkin served on the Transportation Committee, Prairie View Committee, Insurance Committee, Technology Committee, Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee, administrator search committee and assisted with the budgeting process. “Not only do I understand the county’s finances from my committee work, my minor in economics also gives me the background to understand the many tasks of the treasurer’s office,” he added. In a press release issued Wednesday, Wilkin said his experience in education has taught him the importance of working with others to achieve common goals. As a class-
room teacher, he was responsible for managing the schedule and work output for every Wilkin individual in his classroom. As a school counselor, he manages a schedule that juggles the needs of the classroom teachers, clients and administration. “I meet deadlines and work to successfully meet the expectations of the people I work with,” he said. Wilkin said he has dedicated his life to public service and volunteerism. His volunteerism began in college, working the campus hotline and fundraising for Multiple Sclerosis, and continues to this day. His volunteerism has included teaching lifeguarding and CPR for the Red Cross, teaching CPR for the American Heart Association, serving as a Bureau County Red Cross Board member, serving on the Sterling-Rock Falls YMCA Camp Board, serving on the Ohio Veteran’s Memorial Committee and serving on the Ohio Memorial Day Committee. Wilkin said he not only believes in but practices giving back to his community. “Bureau County is my home,” said Wilkin. “I am running for treasurer to serve the citizens of Bureau County, to shine a light on the county’s finances and to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the treasurer’s office by combining technology with a human touch.”

the items for sale by the committee in the lighted Christmas lot located directly across from Rip’s Tavern on Main Street. Evergreen and balsam roping will be sold in 25-foot lengths and is a great way to adorn the entrance of a home or to drape fencing, Martin said. The roping can be cut to fit and is easily bent to decorate even hard-to-reach areas, she said. The price of this
garland is $27 per sixfoot roll. A 24-inch balsam wreath, decorated with pinecones and a bow, sells for $20 and, with little attention, will last throughout the season, Martin said. Also available are densely-filled baskets of evergreens, complete with a Christmas bow, decoration and removable hanger, at a cost of $25 per basket, Martin
said. There will also be a variety of pre-made bows available for sale for those desiring certain colors. Anyone wising to have a bow made may bring their ribbon to the sale and a bow will be crafted for a nominal fee, Martin said.

Motorists get ready for the roads By Donna Barker email@example.com
PRINCETON — With the busy holiday traffic and the potential of dangerous winter weather, area law enforcement agencies are encouraging motorists to take extra precautions when it hitting the roads. On Monday, Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau said ISP districts statewide are gearing up for the holiday travel period, which began Tuesday and will continue through holiday season. The “Operation Kyle” memorial enforcement operation is dedicated to ISP Trooper Kyle Deatherage, who was killed Nov. 26, 2012, while conducting a traffic
stop. ISP officials expect high traffic volumes on interstates and roads throughout the region, Grau said. The ISP will implement periodic saturation patrols through the next several weeks to enforce ISP’s Fatal Four mission, which are speeding, seatbelts, DUI and distracted driving, Grau said. The ISP is coordinating its efforts with the Illinois Department of Transportation, local police and sheriff departments, he said. Studies show that many holiday driving incidents are alcoholrelated, though weather can also be a factor, Grau said. The ISP is urging motorists and outof-state visitors to plan
ahead, follow the rules of the road, and take the necessary safety precautions during this holiday driving season, he said. Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said there are some winter driving tips which motorists need to heed not just as they head into the holiday season, but also into the winter months. For starters, drivers should have their vehicles serviced before the snow flies to make sure the vehicle is in good serviceable condition, Thompson said. They need to remember automobile tires tend to lose pressure during cold temperatures and should be checked for the correct pressure. Also, gas tanks should
be kept full or near full, the sheriff said. In addition to cleaning windshields prior to driving, drivers should brush all snow off headlights, taillights and windows, Thompson said. Also, drivers should allow for extra travel time during snowy or icy conditions. They should also turn on their vehicle lights to increase their visibility to other motorists, the sheriff said. Some drivers may not realize it, but cruise control or overdrive should not be used on slippery roads, Thompson said. Also, drivers need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses which may freeze before the roads do. All-wheel drive does not mean all
weather driveable, the sheriff said. If stuck or stranded while en route, people should never leave their vehicle because it serves as a great shelter and is more visible to others, Thompson said.. And of course, drivers should make sure they winter vehicle safety kits in their vehicles. “If you call the sheriff for advice on road conditions, you will be told: “Travel is not recommended.” Thompson said. “You and your family members must decide if the trip can be delayed. Remember ... you live in Illinois, where the winter weather will become dangerous and unbearable!” Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

From Page 1A exchange (education is the most important one) with wider knowledge of history and traditions form both sides,” Giliola wrote in a letter. At Monday’s council meeting, Spring Valley Mayor Walt Marini announced the mayor of the Italian sister city will be visiting Spring Valley from Dec. 9 to Dec. 11. Marini read aloud a letter sent from mayor Maurizio Cadegiani, who wrote a brief description of Comune Di Montecreto. The community consists of about 1,000 residents, who are all committed to preserving their history and traditions. He wrote about Burgoni bringing attention to the significance between Spring Valley and Comune Di Montecreto, and how impressed he was with the personal stories about the migration to America. “As I listened to the stories, I realized how these experiences form a framework of sufferings, joy and great sacrifice while giving the people great satisfaction on what they had embarked on and achieved,” the letter said. Cadegiani said he looks forward to what the future brings for the two cities and will embrace the opportunity to meet Marini and Spring Valley. Cadegiani plans to attend the Dec. 9 council meeting, if his schedule goes as planned. The city will also host a dinner at Verucchi’s Ristorante on Dec. 10. The public is welcome to attend. Tickets can be purchase for $16, and include the familystyle chicken with trimmings. Tickets can be purchased in the city clerk’s office up until Dec. 6. The Spring Valley Historic Association would like to develop a tribute to the heritage of the Italian immigrants who worked and settled in the area. They are looking for copies of family histories, photographs, letters or memorabilia for display.

OGLESBY — An Illinois Valley Community College student farm may be taking root next spring, board members learned Nov. 19. Sociology instructor Jared Olesen, advisor to the student organization IVSustainability, said the group is looking to organically farm a half-acre on the south edge of the campus near the track. Olesen said the project will provide students hands-on experience, the invaluable skill of learning how to grow food and business experience “in practice” by bringing their product to market. IVSustainability is already involved in campus recycling, food waste composting and hosting an annual Green Expo. “We are advocates for sustainability at IVCC and the broader Illinois Valley,” Olesen said. In other business, the board approved an $11.2 million levy. IVCC anticipates a 2.5 percent decline in assessed valuation for 2013 for an estimated EAV of $2.98 billion. The anticipated total tax rate will be .3663, an increase of 3.6 percent over 2012. “This is due to a decrease in EAV, and the higher additional tax rate,” said Cheryl Roelfsema, vice president for business services and finance. Anticipated tax extensions for the year are $117,194 higher than 2012 but $126,714 less than 2011. The levy will be submitted to county clerks in late December. With an increase of less than five percent over 2012, it will not require public notice or a public hearing. The board also approved: • Offering employees high-deductible health insurance in addition to the two existing plans. For employees choosing the high-deductible option (HDHP), IVCC will offer a health savings account with suggested annual contributions by the college of $2,500 for employee-only coverage and $5,000 for employee plus one, and family coverage. HDHP will be available Jan. 1. • Replacement of the Building G (gym) water heater system by John’s Service and Sales of Oglesby for $94,279, the lowest of eight bids. • The cash farm lease bid of Chris Kolodziej of LaSalle for 149 acres of campus farmland at $380 per acre for a total annual payment of $56,620. • The appointment of Tracy D. Lee as English composition and creative writing instructor to fill the vacancy created by Mark Brown’s resignation. A native of Michigan, Lee is now a part-time English instructor at Paradise Valley Community College in Phoenix, Ariz. The board learned: • IVCC earned an “unmodified opinion” for its 2013 audit. Auditor Randy Ragan of McGladrey told the board’s finance committee Oct. 22 an unmodified opinion “is the best opinion you can get.” • The first programs moved into the Peter Miller Community Technology Center are admissions, financial aid, Project Success, counseling and career services.

Serving Bureau County Since 1847
Sam R Fisher
Youthful reflections It was later in the evening on a Friday night, and the phone rang. I initially panicked a bit. After all, most of my friends were probably doing what I was doing (nodding out on the couch), and any relative who was calling me at that hour was probably in the midst of a crisis. The newspaper was already off the press, so I knew it wasn’t an office call. I almost decided to ignore the call, but the “what ifs” quickly turned my sleepy demeanor into reality. On the other end of the phone was a Terri dear friend who is much younger than I Simon am (probably at least 20 years younger). The sound of his voice made me smile immediately, and we quickly headed into a conversation, as usual, it was an in-depth one. I love that about this friend. While we intersperse small talk with these insightful conversations, I think we both hang up the phone or depart company with a myriad of new ideas swarming our soul. Our friendship is unique. We have passions that are the similar, but on the other hand, we come from two different generations. He is a free spirit, and he reminds me of a place in time in my own life when I would have been classified the same. One thing I really admire about him is that he doesn’t allow the convoluted world to get in his way, and that in and of itself is a breath of fresh air to me. Both of us are in tune enough to know we can only learn from the other, so the age difference between us isn’t an obstacle; instead it compliments our thoughts. I’d like to think we inspire each other — Me: The voice of reason and experience (hard to believe, I know), and Him: The voice of a more a youthful perspective mixed with charisma and the awakenings of life. Our friendship is a good match. I spoke; he listened. He spoke; I listened. The conversation went on and on as the minutes ticked by unnoticed. Our admiration for each other is apparent, and we both know we can say about anything without worrying the other won’t understand. At some point in our chat, we got around to talking about our goals. That’s when I heard myself offering some advice to my young friend. He picked up on my words right away, and before I knew it, despite his much younger age, I realized he was already a few steps ahead of me. We talked about our desires to reach our goals, but we also came to the realization that we must not focus so much on those goals that we forget to enjoy the journey along the way. I offered those thoughts, but he was already ahead of this old gal. He got it. He already understood that concept. Actually, he was already leaps and bounds ahead of me, especially when it comes to relishing the trek toward our target destinations — our goals, rather than being so anxious to achieve those goals that we inevitably lose sight of all the wonderful scenery along the way. My friend appears to enjoy every second of life, and the best part of that is he knows he’s enjoying it while he’s enjoying it. He isn’t racing toward the destination like we tend to do when we get older; instead, he’s living each and every day — really living. He refuses to become so breathless with his race to accomplish his goals that he loses sight of what’s important along the way. He understands that if he gets to his goal and he’s old and completely worn out, it won’t make any difference whether he’s accomplished his goal or not. After several more minutes of conversation and reflection, we both hung up the phone ... I had to assume his smile was similar to mine. I think we all could use a younger friend to help keep life in perspective. I’m sure glad I answered the phone that night ... BCR Editor Terri Simon can be reached at email@example.com.

Bureau County Republican • bcrnews.com
Headlines From The Past Past entries of these articles have looked at the headlines from the years 1907 to 1912. Let’s go back a few years in this edition and look at the year 1900 Bureau County, Illinois through the eyes of the Bureau County Republican. Feb. 15, 1900 The new proprietors of the Apollo Hall will be Cario A. Trimble, Thomas B. and Dr. Chas W. Hodgeman. The new management will give the building an artistic look which will place it on the level with first class play houses in other cities. Excavation for the basement and foundation for the hall was started in 1883. The company was formed to provide a roller skating rink in Princeton during the craze that was sweeping the country at the time. Jan, 11, 1900 Walnut, Ill.: Sickness is everywhere, doctor is going around day and night. Maggie Fuller is recovering after a spell erythema nodosum. (You read it right folks.) March 1, 1900 Bureau County Deputy William Hardy was driving (horse and carriage) from Ladd to Spring Valley when he saw a team of horses being driven toward him at a good rate of speed. Hardy pulled to the right but was hit by the wagon and was thrown from his carriage landing on the side of the road. Hardy’s gun was broken beyond repair for which he often had been offered $25. The previ-
ous owner of the gun was at the time serving 44 years in prison for murder. When the deputy came to after the collision, he was told by the driver of the wagon, Henry Swaube, he would be reimbursed for the damage to the carriage. The cost was $35. Hardy received a severe back injury. March 15, 1900 Wyanet, Ill.: A Wyanet man was part of a matrimonial project sponsored by one of the Chicago papers. A want ad was placed by the intent inquiring about a prepossessing young lady. Soon a correspondence was started between the Wyanet man and a lady from Chicago. After a few letters and a picture between the two, the gentleman became nervous and asked his bride to be for a meeting. She consented and two met in her home. He dressed in his best bibs after combing the hayseed from his whiskers. At the meeting she proclaimed that the cut of his dress was not desirable to her. The gentleman promised that he had a better set of clothes waiting at home in his trunk. She arrived last Tuesday night at 3:16 on the passenger train and went to the Belmont Hotel parlors where she met her groom. He again had the same costume as before and she rejected him asking for $20 back, the amount she spent on him during the courtship. The Wyanet man had a mere 15 cents in his pocket and promised to mail her the rest. With that she returned to Chicago minus a husband.
March 15, 1900 Ohio Township: Williams Haines suspicious of his wife, hired a detective by the name of Clark to follow her. Clark followed Mrs. Haines to Sterling and at Rock Falls she visited friends. On Friday Detective Clark met Mrs. Haines in a saloon in Sterling and made a date with her to go to the theater and take a drive to Dixon on Saturday. Clark then notified Haines and told him to meet them in Dixon. When Clark and Mrs. Haines arrived in Dixon at 1:00 she was arrested. Mrs. Haines was taken before the justice and set free as the justice could find no case against her. She now resides at the Hotel Bishop and has plenty of money. Haines returned to Ohio and is preparing his request for a divorce. Haines is 40 years old and Mrs. Haines is 30 years old. Haines is described as well to do. Aug. 2, 1900 Hollowayville, Ill.: During the heavy thunderstorm yesterday, the barn of Henry Lehn was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground. When Lehn found the barn ablaze he tried to remove the horses and while trying to do so he was kicked in the face and his jaw was broken. His losses amounted to $1,000. So there it is. Another entry to add to the collection. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. See you next time. Princeton resident Todd Borsch can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having a ‘good enough’ Christmas This column was originally printed on Dec. 7, 2009 Finding just the right gifts at Christmas time can be a daunting task. Author Oren Arnold has made his own list of recommended gifts: “To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” One year ago about this time, I wrote a column about the gift of “good enough.” I still think it’s about the best gift we can give, or receive, at Christmas. The “good enough” gift is just the right size, just the right color, just the right price for everyone on your list. The “good enough” gift isn’t wrapped in a box with a bow. It’s placed on an open palm and distributed well before Dec. 24. Though it’s sometimes hard to explain, the “good enough” gift can be described as a pinch of freedom and a pound of acceptance. The “good enough” gift
Donna Barker COMMENTARY allows our best efforts, and those of our friends and loved ones, to be less than perfect. I’m a big fan of “good enough” gifts, even “good enough” living. I sometimes think we are our own worst enemies. It seems we put such pressure on ourselves, especially at Christmas time, to get everything just right, from our Christmas trees to our cookies to our gifts. I have learned in my old age that Christmas trees can have bare spots, that round sugar cookies taste just as good as those shaped like reindeer, and that adjustments can be made to our Christmas gift lists. It’s not that I don’t like to do my best. I do. I try really hard to make things as nice as possible. But there seems to come a point in which I realize I’m only going to be able to do so much. My
time, my money and my energy can only be stretched so far. And that’s where the gift of “good enough” comes into focus for me. For us as an extended family, Christmas will be a bit lonely this year. My mother-in-law, the much loved and respected matriarch of our family, passed away a few weeks ago. We’re not quite sure how to compensate for that loss, or if that is even a possibility. Sometimes, there can be a touch of coldness to our holidays. I guess we all face times in our lives when the “good enough” gift is needed more than in other years. There are the years when finances are almost non-existent for extras. There are years when too much time is spent in hospitals and at grave sites. There are years when worries always seem perched heavily on our shoulders. Maybe this year, more than ever before, we should be giving to others the “good enough” gift, and letting ourselves receive it as well.

2013 co-BCR Volleyball Players of the Year
Power and finesse Browning, Kelly bring different talents By Kevin Hieronymus email@example.com
Sheila Browning brought a game of power to the volleyball court for the LaMoille/Ohio Lady Lions. Michelle Kelly’s game was one of finesse, able to set with pinpoint accuracy to trigger the Princeton Tigresses’ offense. They were the most athletic players for their teams, earning unanimous allconference selections in their respective conferences. When you bring them together, they make a dynamic duo as 2013 co-Players of the Year.

Lions, leaving opposing blockers to brace for cover when Browning swung her powerful right arm. Her average of 3.58 kills per set was more than one kill a set better than the next area hitter. “There’s nothing quite like the thrill of making a kill with nobody touching it,” Browning said. To get that, she said, there’s got to be “a good pass, a good set and my timing’s got to be right spot on.” Even with all that firepower, LaMoille/ Ohio coach Hallie May believes the versatile Browning could have played anywhere on the court and played it well.
“She may be quite possibly the best all around athlete on a volleyball court,” May said. “There’s no doubt in my mind she could have played the setter position, and she would have thrown her body around as a libero. “God just gifted her with some guns and springs in her legs so we used her up front. She’s a hard worker who really came around as a team leader. We had many talks concerning the game, team chemistry, etc.” Browning, who ranked second on her team in aces with 39 and third in scoring with 122 points, took her role as

Red Devils rally to top Somonauk in OT By BCR Sports Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
It may at times look like it’s over, but the Hall Red Devils proved it’s really not over until it’s over in Wednesday’s tournament play at Seneca. The Hall Red Devils were down 68-60 with 20 seconds left against Somonauk. Hall hit three threes including a buzzer-beater by A.J. Gaeta to tie the game at 69 at the end of regulation. Gaeta, who had a trio of threes in the fourth quarter, carried over his hot hand in over-
time, scoring eight more points to lead the Red Devils to a 80-79 victory. Hall coach Mike Filippini said the Red Devils played a terrible first half, but a great second. “We could have easily quit in the second half, but the kids kept fighting,” he said. “Great sign for the season is our kids never giving up and always fighting to the end.” Miguel Villareal made 1 of 2 free throws and Hall made a defensive stop at the end of the game to hold off the Bobcats. Gaeta finished with 27 points
with Villareal adding 20 and Ryan Cinotte 17. Hall played Seneca in Friday’s late game to wrap up pool play. The finals round starts at noon Saturday with the championship set for 7:30 p.m. Mendota went on a 11-0 run to close out a 54-44 win over the host Trojans in Wednesday’s nightcap 54-44. James Carroll had 24 points for the Trojans and Jake Rod (12) and Ryan Reeder (10) combined for 22 more. At Ashton: The LaMoille/Ohio

From Page 13A team captain to heart. Describing her duties, Browning said, requires “being a leader on the floor, just contributing the skills that I do have and keeping everyone else up when we get down.” She is a two-time Little Ten All-Conference First Team selection, leading the Lady Lions to back-to-back runnerup finishes to Newark. Browning is the first LaMoille player to receive the BCR Player of the Year honors dating back to its inception in 1992. Ohio’s Rachel Hansen won in 1993. Now showing her versatility for the L/O basketball team, Browning has attracted the interest from Sauk Valley and IVCC volleyball coaches, May said. She said she likes both spots equally well, ideally being able to play both. “It would be a dream to play both of them,” she said.
A helping hand When asked what her job details as the team’s setter, Princeton senior Michelle Kelly said, “I just try to get my hitters chances to score some points.” She’s been giving those hitters a lot of chances over the past two seasons as the Tigresses’ primary setter. One thousand, four hundred seventy nine of them to be exact over the years, including an area-high 750 this year, 230 assists more than the next best. Kelly said it’s helped to play
with her classmates and partners in crime like Ashley Farraher, Becca Hult and Alicia Poss all these years, “because we’re close and I know where they’re going to be.” In addition to her assists total, Kelly has capped her career by placing her name on the top 10 list for points (second, 504) and digs (fourth, 418) on the Prouty Gym corridor. Again, Kelly humbly says, “It’s exciting, but I couldn’t get all those assists without my teammates.” “I am going to truly miss this kid. Not for just her playing ability, but for what she is off of the court,” PHS coach Andy Puck said. “Michelle has a very high volleyball IQ. She has the quickness to get to every pass, and she makes great decisions with each ball that she sets. Mix these with her competitiveness, excellent defense and the know how to win games. She is one of the best I have had at Princeton High School. “ If things go as planned, volleyball will continue to be a big part of Kelly’s future at the community college level. She said she has looked at both IVCC and Illinois Central College. Kelly is the first to repeat as BCR Player of the Year since Hall’s Kendal Rush won outright in 2007 and shared it with Princeton’s Leah Shaw in 2008. Kelly marks the eighth time a Princeton player has been selected for the BCR top honors. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com

First Team Shiela Browning (L/O, Sr.): The Little Ten All-Conference First Team pick and co-BCR Player of the Year was the big gun for the Lady Lions at the net with an area-best 233 kills. She also contributed 15 blocks, 112 points with 36 aces and 93 digs.

She earned First Team TRAC South AllConference honors. “She made herself a better player. She was determined and disciplined to have a huge impact as an outside hitter and back row player her senior year,” Puck said.

The 2013 growing season is turning out to be a record setter The 2013 growing and harvest seasons are nearing completion. As of Nov. 24, the National Agricultural Statistics Service reported the Illinois corn harvest has reached 98 percent completion. At the Northern Illinois Agronomy Research Center we are in the small percentage that still has corn in the field. We hope to finish this weekend if weather and equipment cooperate, and look forward to sharing research data generated this year. Despite early and late season challenges, this growing season is turning out to be a record setter. The corn yield in Illinois is currently forecast at 180-bushels-per-acre, 15 bushels above the September estimate. Northwest and northeast Illinois have predicted yields of 184 to 187 bushels per acre, respectively. If the overall state yield is realized it will tie record yield set in 2004, and would be the third highest in history. Production is currently forecast at 2.11 billion bushels, an increase of 64 percent over the 2012 drought year. Illinois soybeans are forecast at 49 bushels per acre, 3 bushels above the September forecast and a 20 percent increase over
Russ Higgins COMMENTARY 2012. Our emphasis all spring and summer has been on producing a crop. Now some reminders on safely storing the crop. This is pertinent to the higher moisture corn harvested and stored in northern Illinois. For those who have high moisture corn in on-farm storage, cold is a good thing! For long-term storage, corn should be dried to 15 percent moisture and held at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This prevents most mold growth and insect activity in the grain. Some level of mold growth should be expected when moisture content is above 16.5 percent and the grain temperature is above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. As fungal organisms metabolize the starches in the grain, heat is generated accelerating fungal growth and further increasing grain temperatures. Higher moisture corn can be stored short term if properly cooled. For example, a chart provided by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers shares that corn at 22 percent moisture has a “shelf life” of 17 days
at 60 degrees, 38 days at 50 degrees and 85 days at 40 degrees. When harvest is complete and the bins are full, don’t forget to continue monitoring stored grain monthly for signs of heating. A grain probe is best for sampling, but if unavailable turn on the aeration fan and lean into the access hatch. If the air hitting your face feels warmer than expected, or you detect a musty odor, or if condensation is present on the bin roof on a cold day, run the fan long enough to push a temperature front through the bin. If the bin is equipped with a stirring system run two or three rounds to break up hot spots and to equalize the moisture throughout in the grain mass. Never enter a bin that is being emptied without adequate safety precautions in place. For those making selection decisions on 2014 corn hybrid and soybean varieties, the Illinois Variety Testing website can be a helpful resource. The University of Illinois Variety Testing program began in 1934 and conducts annual crop performance tests to provide farmers, and private seed companies with information on hybrids and varieties of the major Illinois field crops. The trials are conducted in a research-based manner
to minimize variability and insure the integrity of the results. Performance reports available include commercial corn, conventional and roundup resistant soybeans, forage crops, wheat and sorghum. The corn and soybean variety trials are divided into the northern, west central, east central and southern regions. Results are downloadable at http:// vt.cropsci.illinois.edu/.

The Three Rivers runs through it Three Rivers Conference champions
By Kevin Hieronymus email@example.com
Four of the six Bureau County schools will play under one conference umbrella this basketball season. Hall, Princeton and St. Bede have moved into the Three Rivers Athletic Conference, joining Bureau County mate Bureau Valley. The Storm have been paired with Three Rivers holdovers Amboy, Erie, Fulton, Morrison, Newman, Prophetstown and Riverdale into the North Division. On the South side, Hall, Princeton and St. Bede join fellow newcomers Rockridge, Sherrard and Orion, previously from the Olympic/West Central conferences, and Three Rivers holdover Kewanee. This layout will only remain for one school year, however. The TRAC will realign in 2014-2015 to a East-West format for all sports but football. In the East, Amboy, BV and Newman will join Hall, Princeton, St. Bede and Kewanee. The West will be comprised of Erie, Fulton, Morrison, Orion, Prophetstown, Riverdale, Rockridge and Sherrard. The Three Rivers was formed in 1975-76 with eight charter members: Amboy, Erie, Fulton, Morrison, Prophetstown, Riverdale, Savanna and Sterling Newman. Bureau Valley joined the TRAC in 1999. Kewanee came over in 2010 from the NCIC. On
Three Rivers Conference Timeline
1975 - Formed with eight charter members: Amboy, Erie, Fulton, Morrison, Prophetstown, Port Byron Riverdale, Savanna, Sterling Newman.
Jan. 12, 2012, league expansion was approved, bringing in the five schools from the West Central Conference, plus Hall and St. Bede, which were already playing football in the Big Rivers. The remaining Bureau County schools branch into separate conferences. The LaMoille/Ohio co-op remains in the Little Ten while DePue stands in the Tri-County. • Postseason success: The Three Rivers has never produced a state champion. But it has had its share of state trophies. Bureau Valley won an unprecedented three straight third-place trophies in the Class A boys tournament from 200002. Other active Three Rivers boys teams to reach state, but not placing, were Prophetstown in 1974, Riverdale in 1975 and Morrison in 1997. Four current TRAC
members also produced state boys teams prior to joining the league. Kewanee was the first to go, placing fourth in 1932. Princeton had back-toback state squads, placing fourth in its second trip in 1955 behind All-American center Joe Ruklick and All-State guard Lew Flinn. Sherrard qualified for state in 1992, led by former BV coach and present principal Eric Lawson. Like Princeton, Hall produced back-to-back state squads in 1997 and 1998 under coach Eric Bryant Sr., finishing as state runners-up each time. Six different girls teams from two different active Three Rivers schools have reached the State Tournament. Sterling Newman trophied three times, including thirds in 1997 and 1998 and most recently, fourth in 2005.
Future East-West realignment East
Erie Fulton Morrison Orion Prophetstown Riverdale Rockridge Sherrard Morrison has also sent three teams to state (1980, ‘82, ‘83), but none placed. No other active TRAC girls teams reached state. First-year member Hall, then from the NCIC, reached the Class A finals in 2006, but did not place. Kewanee, which also came to the Three Rivers from the NCIC, reached state three times in a four-year stretch from 1988-91, placing fourth in Class A in 1988.
