Storm damage minimal By Vinde Wells Editor A violent late season storm that wreaked destruction in central Illinois early Sunday afternoon brushed past Ogle County leaving relatively little damage. Sheriff Michael Harn said Monday that the fast-moving storm was strongest on the south and east edges of the county where it brought down trees and tipped over at least four semis on Interstates 39 and 88. Harn said an emergency drill at Exelon’s Byron Generating Station scheduled for Nov. 20 has been cancelled because Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) personnel have been dispatched to Washington, Ill., where a tornado packing winds of more than 190 miles per hour destroyed at least 400

homes in its path. The tornado was classified as an EF-4 by the National Weather Service. That tornado was part of a storm system that spawned 11 tornadoes in central and southern Illinois, leaving six dead and hundreds injured. Tornadoes from the system also touched down in Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, and Michigan. Rochelle Police Chief Eric Higby said power outages and damage were reported throughout the community, as the storm brought down trees and electrical wires. Rochelle police were called out to assist the Illinois State Police and Ogle County Sheriff’s Police with the crashes involving toppled semis, he said. ComEd spokesman Dave Gross said approximately 600 customers in southern

Ogle County were without electricity from the storm. Most had been restored by early Monday afternoon, he said. “The damage was worse the farther south you went,� Gross said. In Lee County, utility poles were broken off by the high winds, leaving some customers without power until Monday evening. A press release issued by ComEd on Monday said that more than 200,000 customers were without electricity in northern Illinois due to “downed power lines, broken poles, and toppled transmission towers.� More than 570 ComEd and contractor crews were working Monday to restore power, the release said. The contractor crews came from Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

County board approves budget By Vinde Wells Editor Only one Ogle County Board member cast a no vote Tuesday against the 2014 budget. The $39. 3 million budget was approved 22-1 with only Skip Kenney, Rochelle, voting against it. John O’Brien, Rochelle, did not attend the meeting. “It’s not a balanced budget,� Kenney said after the meeting. “You’ve got to live within your means.� He said too much is being taken out of the Long Range Planning Fund to bolster other funds. Revenues in that fund come from the host fees paid by garbage collection firms to dump refuse in the landfills within the county. The fees bring

approximately $2.5 million per year into the county’s coffers. According to the budget, the Long Range Planning Fund, which is earmarked for major capital projects, is projected to start the new fiscal year Dec. 1 with a balance of $13 million, add approximately $2.5 million in revenues throughout the year, and end with a balance of $9.5 million. The largest budgeted expenditures in the Long Range Planning Fund are $4.1 million for a new sheriff’s administration building, $1 million for a highway department storage building, $435,000 for repairs and maintenance of existing buildings, and $250,000 to establish a new fund for purchasing county-owned vehicles.

In This Week’s Edition...

Safety and an understanding of the law were stressed during a recent concealed carry class. Certified instructors from the Twin Towers Gun Club were offering Nov. 16 class in Oregon to train a dozen people with the rules and regulations. A second portion of the class, practical skills, includes range shooting and additional safety demonstrations. “A gun is a tool of self defense,� said instructor Scott Schultz. “No one needs to know you have the gun.� He said having a concealed carry permit does not give the weapon’s owner the right to go up to people and wave their gun around. Students in the class learned that Illinois defines a concealed firearm as a loaded or unloaded handgun on or about a person. A firearm is concealed if it is completely or mostly concealed. “If you can see the gun it is not concealed,� Schultz said.

“A gun is a tool of self defense,� — Scott Schultz “If it is accidentally visible that is allowed.� Times a concealed gun could be revealed is when bending over or raising arms above your head, he said. Training is required to earn the privilege to carry a concealed carry permit. “In Illinois you need to be 21 years old, and complete the training,� said Schultz. “The license is only valid for five years.� Training consists of an 16 hours which includes classroom time and pistol class at a gun range, both with certified instructors. To qualify for a license a shooter needs to be 70 percent accurate on a target over 30 rounds. Ten are at 5 yards, 10 at 7 yards, and 10 at 10 yards on a standard B-27 target. “In addition to being

accurate, you need to follow all of the instructors instructions during the range class,� said Schultz. To renew a license, an additional three hours of training is required. The permit fee is $150. During the application process, local police agencies will have the ability to view who is requesting a permit and can make an objection to the application. A situation that will come up for concealed carry permit-holders are routine traffic stops. Any interaction with a police officer, including a traffic stop, the officer can request a concealed carry license. Schultz said the permitholder does not need to disclose the permit or if a Turn to A10

Village of Progress held annual awards banquet By Jeannette Mingus Correspondent More than 300 people gathered last week to pay tribute to the men and women whose contributions help a local organization remain successful after more than four decades in operation. The Village of Progress (VOP) held its 44th annual banquet celebration Nov. 13 at St. Mary’s Learning Center, Oregon. Professional speaker Tom Wadsworth served as the evening’s emcee. Karen Young was awarded the John Herrmann Personal

Achievement Award for her consistent progress and willingness to accept any job assignment. She has been enrolled at the VOP for the past 34 years. Young’s current responsibilities include working in the production area and walking Chana, the VOP dog, daily. Named after Bob Moehle who served 36 consecutive years as a board member, the Robert Moehle Personal Achievement Award is presented to someone enrolled in the Developmental Training Program who shows persistence in reaching their

goals despite obstacles. This year’s recipient was Patrick Bryson, an 11-year member of the village family. Bryson remained positive and committed despite setbacks associated with a ruptured hernia and recurring grand mal seizures. Oregon High School student Johnathan Prose received the Janie Etnyre Volunteer of the Year Award for his selfless commitment to the consumers at the Village of Progress.

During the budget discussion, board member Ron Colson, Mt. Morris, also questioned some of the expenditures from the Long Range Planning Fund. He said he planned to vote for the budget, but voiced concern that the fund is being used to pay for projects outside its intended purpose. He did not specify which expenditures he was questioning. Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, disagreed. He said he believes paying for the repairs and maintenance of county buildings is within the fund’s stated purpose. The fund has been used to pay for the construction of the $15 million judicial center built in 2005 and for the remodeling of the courthouse Village of Progress Executive Director Craig Carpenter, left, was recognized for 40 in 2010, a $7.5 million project. years of service during the annual VOP banquet last week.

Students learn about ag during recent programs Students throughout Ogle and Carroll counties learned about apples and pumpkins through the Ag in the Classroom program. In September, students found out how an apple seed becomes a tree. Younger elementary students “decorated� trees to show the

different seasons. Winter trees had cotton glued to them; pink tissue made into little balls represented blossoms on spring trees; and students finger painted green and red apples on the other trees. Older elementary students made an apple chain so they

could tell the “apple story� to their families. In October, students heard the story “Pumpkin Jack� by Will Hubbell. Through the story they discovered the life cycle of a pumpkin. Kindergarten students illustrated their own pumpkin books to share. Other students made a pumpkin chain and some made pumpkin charms. All the projects represented the pumpkin life cycle and gave them an opportunity to share the knowledge they gained with others. Children learned how apples and pumpkins relate to agriculture. Illinois farmers grow more pumpkins than anywhere else in the world. They grow 90% of the pumpkins used for processing. Most of the processing takes place in Morton, the Pumpkin Capital of the World. Agriculture in the Classroom is a program to help students gain a greater awareness of the role of agriculture in the economy and society. Students learn that thousands of farm products are in the world around Kindergarten students in Stillman Valley illustrated their them—on their plate, in the own books showing the life cycle of a pumpkin. Students clothes they wear, in the in Jacqui Goodman’s class shared their books with each medicine that makes them well, and in earth-friendly other. Photo supplied fuels and plastics.

Federation holds meeting By Katelyn Ackland Federation Reporter Federation has been having fun this year. For our last meeting, the group we went to the Turning Point Farm and had a meeting, potluck and campfire.

We played some games, like the name game and spud. In our meeting we decided that this year’s theme for Federation is going to be all about food. We’ll be helping out in a food pantry, learning about food from different countries,

and much more. Federation meetings are held every fourth Thursday of the month. If any 4-Hers ages 12 and up are interested in joining, contact the Extension Office at 815-732-2191 for more information.

Corn demand levels reveal

ethanol production numbers In the monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report (WASDE) released on Nov. 8, the USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board estimated that 4.648 billion bushels of corn were used to produce ethanol and coproducts during the 2012-13 marketing year. That estimate is 371 million bushels less than the estimate for the 2010-11 marketing year and 352 million less than estimated use during the 2011-12 marketing year. Domestic ethanol production declined from an estimated 13.796 billion gallons during the 201112 corn marketing year to an estimated 12.899 billion gallons last year. “On the surface, the reasons for the year-over-year decline in ethanol production and corn use in the 201213 marketing year are not obvious,� said University of Illinois agricultural economist Darrel Good. “Based on estimates from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), domestic ethanol consumption (including small quantities of denaturant) was nearly identical in the two years, totaling 12.933 billion gallons during the 201112 corn marketing year and 12.991 billion gallons last year. “The decline in ethanol production then was not associated with a decline in domestic consumption. The decline reflected a year-overyear change in the ethanol trade balance and a change in ethanol inventories,� Good said. During the 2011-12 marketing year, imports were a modest 293 million gallons and exports were quite large at 1.095 billion gallons. The large positive trade of ethanol reflected, in part, reduced Brazilian ethanol production and exports stemming from smaller supplies and higher prices of sugar. During the 2012-13 marketing year, U.S. ethanol trade was balanced. Estimated imports totaled 558 million gallons, and estimated exports totaled 567 million

gallons. The difference of 793 million gallons in the trade balance between the two years represents about 285 million bushels of corn. Good reported that estimated ethanol stocks at the end of the 2011-12 corn marketing year were 62 million gallons larger than stocks at the beginning of the year. An estimated 22 million bushels of corn then were used as a result of the buildup in inventories. In contrast, ethanol stocks at the end of the 2012-13 marketing year were 101 million gallons smaller than stocks at the beginning of the year. The drawdown in stocks replaced about 37 million bushels of corn to produce ethanol. The difference in ethanol stock changes during the two marketing years represented about 59 million bushels of corn. When added to the difference of 285 million bushels of corn represented by the change in the ethanol trade balance, the total is very close to the 352-millionbushel decline in the USDA estimate of corn use for the two years. “Much has been made of the recent surge in domestic ethanol production and the re-opening of some ethanol plants,� Good said. “Based on weekly estimates from the EIA, ethanol production in the first two months of the 2013-14 corn marketing year of 2.226 billion gallons was about 7.5 percent larger than production during the first two months of the 2012-13 marketing year. “The increase, however, may not imply any substantial increase in domestic ethanol consumption, but instead may reflect changes in net trade and stock levels. Imports totaled only 23.5 million gallons in September and were zero in October. Export estimates for those two months are not yet available but would have totaled about 100 million gallons if the August pace was maintained,� Good said. Stocks of ethanol were about 75 million gallons less at the end of October than

at the end of August, Good added. Domestic consumption in the two months may have totaled about 2.225 billion gallons, a year-over-year increase of about 2 percent. Estimates of domestic consumption for September will be available with EIA estimates of production, trade, and stocks to be released in the last week of November. “Importantly, estimated ethanol production during the first two months of the 201314 marketing year was 3.2 percent less than during the first two months of the 201112 marketing year,� Good said. For the current marketing year, the USDA projects corn used for ethanol and co-product production at 4.9 billion bushels. “Actual consumption of corn could be somewhat different than that projection, depending on domestic consumption of ethanol, net ethanol trade, and the change in ethanol stock levels,� Good said. “Domestic ethanol consumption will be influenced by biofuels policy and by ethanol prices. Ethanol prices will in turn be influenced by corn prices. “It is generally assumed that domestic ethanol consumption will be at least as large as in the past three years, near the 10 percent blend wall of 13 billion gallons,� Good said. Good said that ethanol trade will also be influenced by biofuels policy as the size of the reduction in the advanced biofuels mandate for 2014 could influence the demand for imported ethanol. Under blend-wall constraints, ethanol imports substitute for domestic ethanol production. “A better indication of which ethanol and corn scenario will unfold will be available when EPA releases preliminary rule making for 2014,� Good said. “For the corn market, the implications may be more important for future marketing years than for the current year since it will influence the magnitude of needed corn production.�

PPSOC founded back in 1970s

parcels of prairie which, although not as high quality, could be preserved with the tiny jewels and form a large, sweeping vista to catch people’s attention and imaginations. From a small beginning, the land became the internationally known Nachusa Grasslands. The original purpose of PPSOC was to preserve prairies in Ogle County. Since then, it has matured into a multi-action group that preserves natural lands and species, provides free consulting services, presents interesting free public programs and sells cut-ityourself Christmas trees. Tree sales are probably its most well-known function. Cheerful families come from as far as Chicago to re-kindle family traditions of finding the perfect tree, cutting it and taking it home. Many of them thanked volunteers for re-opening the former Sinnissippi Tree Farm, closed for several years before it was sold to PPSOC. Money from the sales goes directly to pay down the loan for the purchase of the 82 acre site dotted with high quality prairie remnants. PPSOC members are delighted to be able to connect with so many people and to preserve and restore the native environment. Hikes are led through the land. More activities, including an historic reenactment of early life in Illinois, are planned. We know what PPSOC means. Who would have guessed what we would become? “You never know!” Sonia Vogl Oregon

Finally, the coaching staff would like to thank our families for allowing us the luxury of coaching high school football. Sincerely, Denny Diduch FHS Varsity Football Coach

Veteran’s Day services held

Dear Editor, Observing Veteran’s Day and being thankful for our freedoms should be a nationwide endeavor. Veteran’s Day Services were held on Nov. 8, at the Rock River Center, Oregon, with the presentation of the Colors, Pledge of Allegiance, a speaker, singing of “America the Beautiful” and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” led by Margo Ackland. On Nov. 11, Veteran’s Day Services were held at the VFW Oregon with a welcome by Commander VFW 8739 T. Richard Day, Presentation of the Colors by the FFA and Boy Scouts, Pledge of Allegiance, Director and Oregon High School Choir sang our National Anthem. A check for $1,065 was

presented to Commander Day from Autumn on Parade collection for the restoration at the Courthouse, followed by the invocation by Chaplain John Tuttle, Commander of the American Legion Post 297, (Lord’s Prayer). Commander Day gave a poignant welcome regarding Veteran’s Day. First a big welcome home and thank you for serving the USA. He explained for us to understand, there is only nine percent of the population of 303 million, who served in the service of the USA. How is that? He asked all the veterans present to stand with applause following. He said, “Today here we are, the minority,” The director and the Oregon High School Choir sang “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Commander Day stated, “A veteran is someone who at one point of his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to the USA for the amount up to and including my life. Now we must honor our veterans in every way we can.” Chaplain Tuttle read the 10 names of deceased this year, VFW and two members of the American Legion. He also led the closing prayer. A rifle salute by the VFW and American Legion Firing Squad, and playing of “Taps” by an Oregon High School member. How can we thank those that took part, the facilities, and those that made this program possible? Thank you. Anna A. Hatzipanagiotis Mt. Morris

Dear Editor, What does PPSOC mean? It’s a question we’re often asked. It’s an acronym for the Prairie Preservation Society of Ogle County – a long name to handle. PPSOC is so much shorter and simpler to remember. We hope people will come to recognize it. PPSOC was founded as a nonprofit Bicentennial organization back in the 1970s. It original goal was to purchase an 11-acre prairie remnant that had never been plowed. After the organization’s founder was gone, the small parcel of land was officially named the Doug Wade Prairie in his honor. “You never know” was one of Wade’s responses when asked why he was doing something that seemed totally ridiculous such as building exclosures to keep cows out of an especially high quality part of a prairie remnant during 95-degree Illinois heat when everything on the other side of the fence looked much more succulent than on their side. The tiny pieces of remnant prairie, lovingly protected, caught the attention of Chicago area botanists and ornithologists. They recognized it as a prime example of prairie, native to Illinois which, when white settlers first arrived, covered over three fourths of the state. The Nature Conservancy was informed of the find. They recognized that the adjacent area had large

Laws discussed in class From A1 gun is on their person or in their car unless specifically asked by an officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are not required to tell the officer you have a gun, but after a request you need to tell them about the weapon,â&#x20AC;? Schultz said. Instructor Jason White, who is also the Mt. Morris Police Chief, had a suggestion for permit-holders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not yell â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have a gunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because an officer might pull a gun on you,â&#x20AC;? said White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe hand your concealed carry permit with your license to let the officer know.â&#x20AC;? He said officers in the future may be able to see whether someone has a license on their squad carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s computer by running the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tags. A student in the class asked if the officer asks to see the gun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the officer asks, then let

the officer know where the gun is,â&#x20AC;? said Schultz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may have you exit the vehicle and check for the gun.â&#x20AC;? Another section of the class discussed the 23 prohibited areas where guns are not allowed to be concealed. Loaded firearms are not allowed on any form of public transportation, but an unloaded gun in a bag or case is allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At events like Autumn on Parade you can not attend the event with a concealed firearm,â&#x20AC;? said Schultz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can go through to get to a home or business. You also can not attend the Oregon Trail Days beer garden with a concealed firearm.â&#x20AC;? Other locations that are not allowed include government buildings, public parks, and any facility displaying the 4 by 6 inch sign showing guns are not allowed. A concealed carry permitholder may bring their

firearm to certain parking areas as long as they store the unloaded firearm out of view in a locked vehicle or case. However, there are some locations where guns are never allowed. Any property that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission oversees prohibits firearms from the property. This also prohibits the firearms from being in the vehicle. In Ogle County that means anyone going to the Byron Generating Station may not bring a firearm to the property. For additional information about a concealed carry course contact the Twin Towers Gun Club by emailing twintowersgc@frontier.com. Classes will be also posted at www.nrainstructors.org/ searchcourse.aspx. The instructors will be scheduling additional classes in the spring.

Sarah Corcoran, an Oregon High School graduate and special education major at Western Illinois University, Macomb, received a $500 scholarship to continue her education. Rochelle Township High School senior Ariana Esterday also received a $500 scholarship. Esterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational goals stem from her positive experiences with multiple foster siblings who have disabilities, and include a degree in occupational or physical therapy assisting. The third $500 scholarship was awarded to Abby Zaccaria, a senior at Rochelle Township High School who will be attending Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, to study English. Despite the difficulties associated with having Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syndrome, Zaccaria has been highly successful at RTHS and is

board member, made the presentation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His maturity, enthusiasm and generous nature are unusual for someone his age, and our agency and disabled are fortunate to have him as a friend,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Fred Smith Competitive Employment Award was presented to Kelli Nicholas for her dependability, positive attitude, and quality of work in the kitchen at Family First, Oregon. Kathi Heller presented Matt Spurbeck with the Carly Heller Special Olympian of the Year Award, so named after her daughter, a Special Olympics volunteer, who was killed in a car accident in 2002. Spurbeck competes in all three of VOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting events: basketball, track and field, and bowling.

The Rick Hahn Business of the Year Award was presented to the Community Bank of Oregon in recognition of its 26-year relationship which has provided community employment and training opportunities for dozens of VOP consumers. In addition, the bank has made monetary contributions including donations to the VOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Wish List appeal, sponsorships of the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf outing, and the purchasing of awards for the annual banquet. Bank representative Laura McKean expressed the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appreciation of the Village of Progress saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are truly blessed for all the ways they touch the members of our community.â&#x20AC;? Tammy Sigler was awarded the Robert Stahl Friendship Award for her efforts to make everyone feel welcomed and appreciated. Sigler has been the â&#x20AC;&#x153;village greeterâ&#x20AC;? for 15

years. The Robert Stouffer Special Recognition Award was presented to John Barnhart, whose philosophy is simple: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly believe that everyone has importance and potential no matter who they are.â&#x20AC;? Barnhart has been involved with the VOP through his position as the Natural Resource Manager for the Oregon Park District. He has provided outdoor education through a variety of activities including releasing young pheasants, gathering apples and pressing them for cider, and collecting maple syrup. To close the awards, VOP Executive Director Craig Carpenter recognized employees Cathy Synder for 10 years of service, and Rod Young for 20 years. Carpenter was also recognized for his 40 years service to VOP. He is the fourth person to reach that milestone. The evening also included dinner prepared and served by St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parish and entertainment provided by the Denny Diamond Trio.

Compared to getting pounded by 40 points in junior high, that’s an improvement.” For the team to be successful, they will need to greatly rely on teamwork. “Attitude-wise, this is one of the best groups I’ve had. The juniors are pretty close,” Grobe said. “A goal is to instill a winning attitude. We need to instill a

competiveness at the junior high and have it carry out to high school.” Freeport Aquin lost allstater Sophie Brunner, but will be one of the conference favorites, along with Dakota and Forreston. “Realistically, if we could be 500 again, I’d be happy,” Grobe said. “I’m still waiting for a regional championship.” With only eight girls on the roster, Polo may dress sophomores for varsity games, but Grobe is unsure of their playing time.

The Polo girls basketball team lost nearly its entire starting line-up and will be depending upon the junior class to carry them through the 2013-14 season. Aleetra Roberts, Brecken Albrecht, Kelsey Taylor and Allina Llanas have all graduated from a 13-15 team. The lone returning starter is forward Keeley Meyer. She will be joined in the post by fellow juniors, Jozi Grobe and Alex Sternberg. “We don’t have a true center,” Polo coach Jeff Grobe said. “All are forwards about 5-foot-9 to 5-10. We will count on them for rebounds and our scoring punch.” Another forward is the lone senior on the team, Carly Hinrichs. Four juniors will handle the guard positions. They are Madison Meredin, Paige Lust, Hannah Grobe and Emily Ditzler. “None are pure shooters or standout players,” Grobe said. “They know their role.” Grobe and Ditzler will be defensive specialists and Meredin will be counted on for 3-point shooting. “If we had one, Paige would be our point guard,” Grobe said. Grobe is in his fifth year as varsity girls coach, though he has over 25 years in the school’s basketball program. “We’ll get and go, but we’ll run half court too,” Grobe said. “The big key is how well the juniors adjust at the varsity level. It will be a learning experience.” These same juniors struggled at the lower levels to win games, but Grobe has Jozi Grobe puts up a shot Nov. 15 during practice.

By Andy Colbert Reporter It was with anxious anticipation that I drove up Ill. 2 last Friday for a chat with the Rockford Lutheran football team. The coach knew why I was coming up, but his players didn’t. With the team prepping for one last workout before facing Harvard the next day, this wasn’t going to be a pep talk or anything like it. Rather, it would be a case of me gaining a much-needed dose of humility. Here’s the back-story. About two months ago, in this very same column, I made reference to Lutheran being an overrated football team and that Oregon possibly could beat them. At that time, Lutheran was ranked No. 2 in the 4A poll, which I wrote was “out of kilter”. I also made a point of mentioning that Rochelle was unranked in 4A, but would put a running clock (win by 40 points or more) on Lutheran.

Well, I got my wish as Lutheran and Rochelle met in the playoffs. However, it wasn’t a 40-point Rochelle victory. Instead, it was a 27-22 Lutheran win, leaving me with an emotional hangover. In the days leading up to that game, I felt some guilt about writing what I did about Lutheran being overrated and how Rochelle would obliterate them, but still told anyone that would listen that the Hubs would easily win by around three touchdowns. How could a school with an enrollment of 397, long known as high school football doormat, have any business being on the same field with a 3-time state semifinalist from a 5A power conference? On paper, Rochelle looked like a sure thing, but one thing that can’t be measured on “paper” is heart. I vastly under-estimated the heart and toughness of a Lutheran football player. And for me to have the audacity to predict the results of a future event is rather vain. That’s just my ego taking over. Pride and envy also clouded my judgment. As a Rochelle grad, there was envy of

Stillman pulls ahead for 34-20 win By Andy Colbert Reporter For a 230-pounder, Zac Hare demonstrates surprising fast speed in an open field. But in a 34-20 win by Stillman Valley over Winnebago in the 3A football playoffs Nov. 16, it was three long runs by Hare that made the difference. “He’s a phenomenal running back,” Winnebago coach Mark Helm said. “When he knew he had to have it, he kicked it into another gear.” “A couple of those runs were flat-out will. He refused to go down,” SV coach Mike Lalor said. Hare gave the Cardinals an early 7-0 lead on a 60-yard run. The senior fullback also closed the game out in style with 44 and 38-touchdowns, the latter after he bowled over standout defensive back Nolan Peterson and ran untouched the rest of the way to the end zone. “When they got ahead (2014), I knew I had to make something happen,” Hare said. In typical running-back gratitude, Hare mentioned his “unbelievable” line, but also gave credit to the team’s strength coach. “Dan Lundine gives us the power to keep our legs moving,” Hare added. “You’ve got to keep running on your feet.” In the evenly matched

Lutheran being ranked No. 2 and my former school unranked. That seemed unjust so to assuage my pride, I bashed the other guy in print. Maybe prejudice got in the way too. After Lutheran decisively beat Oregon in 2012, it was somewhat difficult to accept how they got so good so fast. You know, the private vs. public school argument. Oh well, Rochelle would give the Crusaders their comeuppance, or so I thought. In the end, it doesn’t matter - private vs public, BNC vs. NIB-12, new kid on the block vs. neighborhood bully. What does matter is that I was wrong for making derogatory comments about Lutheran’s football team and some kind of amends were in order. I shared that with Lutheran coach Bruce Bazsali after the Rochelle game and he eagerly invited me to Rockford to address his players and coaches. So, that’s what I ended up doing. When I got to the school, coach Bazsali warmly greeted me and introduced me to the

As I explained what I had written about them and where I was at fault, the Lutheran players and coaches generously offered forgiveness.

County News Obituaries James H. Mattison James (Jim) Henry Mattison, 89, died Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 in hospice care in McDonough, Ga. He was born on Feb. 3, 1924 in Oregon, the son of Henry and Hazel Mattison. After graduating from Oregon High School, he attended and graduated from Oregon Bible College. He married a fellow college student, Mary Helen Landry, and the young couple began their lifetime adventure together in Pumpkin Center, La., attempting to start a new church there for one year. They then moved to Mary Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home church, spending two years in Hammond, La., pastoring the Happy Woods Church of God. There they started their large family with the birth of their first two children, Michael and Ruth. They then served in two churches in Texas, spending a year in Riviera, before starting a church in Harlingen, where they lived for seven years.

While in Texas they added to their family with the birth of Rebekah, Betsy, Ben, and John. In 1956 they moved back to Louisiana to pastor the Blood River Church of God near Springfield. During their 11-year stay there, they completed their family with the birth of Steve and Tim. In 1967 they moved to pastor the Fort Valley Church of God and the Maurertown Church of God in Virginia. After 11 years they moved to Burr Oak, Ind., where he pastored the Burr Oak Church of God. After Mary Helen died in 1983, Jim married Martha Holiday Jones, and moved to her home in South Carolina after his retirement in 1986. In retirement, Jim became more actively involved in mission work in Malawi, Africa and formed Malawi Africa Missions to assist in the mission work there. He was instrumental in building many churches there and making numerous trips to visit their churches and train pastors. After Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death in 2006 he continued to be active

in the Malawi mission work and made his final mission trip to Africa in 2008. Jim became a close friend and mentor of hundreds of people, and constantly encouraged and corresponded with many until the very end of his life. He consistently wrote over 1,000 letters per year and found great joy in sharing both scripture and humorous stories. Jim loved to study the Bible and in particular prophecy. He wrote three books: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prophecies of the End of the Age,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The EndTime Timeline,â&#x20AC;? and his autobiography â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Life of a Country Boy Preacherâ&#x20AC;?, as well as many articles, lessons, and pamphlets. For many years he wrote the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prophecy Pageâ&#x20AC;? in the Restitution Herald, and later authored the column â&#x20AC;&#x153;Verses to Live By.â&#x20AC;? Jim is survived by his eight children, Mike (Barbara), Ruth (John) Pendergrass, Rebekah (Joe) Martin, Betsy (Steve) Moore), Ben (Deb), John (Pat), Steve (Beth), and Tim (Anne); as well as two step-children Tim (Beth) Jones and Rebecca (Dave)

Dauksas; 22 grandchildren; and 33 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wives, Mary Helen and Martha; and also by stepdaughter Melody Ballard and her husband Bob.

Oregon School Bd. may raise tax levy By Vinde Wells Editor Like many other taxing bodies, the Oregon School District’s shrinking value may mean higher real estate taxes for residents. Superintendent Tom Mahoney told the school board Monday that he is recommending increasing the district’s total tax levy by 2.5 percent, meaning a possible Joyce Stephens holds a Nativity themed tapestry that will be on display at the Methodist Church.

Mahoney said district finances are currently in good shape, and spending is where it should be at this stage of the fiscal year, which began July 1. The state has caught up on the GSA payments owed to the district for last year, he said. Currently, the state is owes the district only $300,000 for this year. However, Mahoney said the state has reduced the amount of GSA it is obligated to pay school districts. “The reason they’re no longer behind is because they’re paying us less,” he said. In an effort to curb expenses, some time ago the district hired Expense Reduction Analysts, a Chicago firm that studies how businesses and taxing bodies can operate more efficiently financially. Mahoney said the firm’s analysis of the district’s spending showed school officials are being frugal. The only area of concern, he said, was that the district is paying too much for property insurance.
