School employee could be suspended on Jan. 8 By Vinde Wells Editor The Forrestville Valley School Board was scheduled to hold a special meeting Wednesday with possible action to suspend an employee. The agenda for the meeting included a closed session to discuss personnel issues followed by “possible action� for “suspension of employee without pay pending

dismissal hearing.� Board president Robert Ebbesmeyer declined Tuesday morning to say which employee was involved in the possible action. However, Superintendent Lowell Taylor has been on sick leave since mid-August. The board approved Taylor’s request on Aug. 26 for medical leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The leave was extended

indefinitely at the board’s November meeting, Ebbesmeyer said. Interim Superintendent Jane Eichman has been overseeing the district since Aug. 26 when she was hired by the board. In accordance with state guidelines, Eichman will be paid $550 per day. Because she is a retired superintendent, pension requirements limit her to work 100 days per school year.

Snowplows had troubles with extreme weather By Chris Johnson Reporter

The extreme subzero temperatures have left some county snowplows in the shop just when they’re needed on the roads. Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook said the extreme weather has caused some trucks to malfunction. “Right now the temperatures are causing havoc,� said Cook Monday morning. “Over the last 24 hours we have had trucks freeze up.� The malfunctions are due to the blowing fine snow and the extreme cold and wind. This has left 3 or 4 of the county snowplow fleet on the sidelines to deal with the drifting snow on county roads.

“I think this morning alone I have had 3 or 4 of the 13 trucks down,� said Cook. “Their filter systems have frozen up.� This was just one issue the trucks were having when the temperature outside was nearing 20 below with wind chills of 40 below. “It has been an uphill battle,� said Cook. “Our guys are working hard to keep the trucks running and the roads open.� Steady winds of 15-20 miles per hour and gusts over 30 have contributed to the drifting on the road. Fortunately, the winds have been from different directions over the past few days, Cook said. “Every road in the county has experienced drifting however it is not horrible

because the drifts are lower because of the wind direction changes.� He said if the wind was all out of one direction then the drifting would have been high enough that only heavy equipment would have been able to clear the roads. With the shift in winds there was drifting but each drift was smaller than they could have been. Any drifted roads that the county snowplows are unable to clear during routine routes will be addressed when the wind speed lowers. When the winds finally die down and the temperature rises, Cook said a front end loader will be utilized to help clear the edges of the roads and push the drifts back.

of the weather. Vacation started a day early when an ice storm led to classes being called off on Dec. 20, which was supposed to be the last day of school before the holidays. Then bitter arctic cold with strong winds swept in Sunday night, breaking 20-year-old records and closing schools Monday and Tuesday, which would have the first days back for students.

Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said the mercury had dipped to -20 degrees at his home in Forreston by Monday morning. The winds were estimated at 25 to 35 miles per hour. “With the wind that put the wind chill at -49,� Harn said. Tuesday morning was only slightly better the temperature at -13 degrees and somewhat diminished winds. “It’s a safety issue. We can’t have kids outside in weather like this,� Oregon Superintendent Tom Mahoney said Monday, after canceling classes for the second day.

School wasn’t the only thing closed. Ogle County government offices and the judicial center was closed both days, and the Oregon City Hall was shuttered on Monday. The Polo City Council and Forreston Village Board canceled their Monday night meetings and rescheduled them. Mahoney said the district calls off school for the cold when frostbite is likely in a half hour or less of exposure. “We have lots of kids who wait at bus stops, and many others who walk to school,� Turn to A2

Meetings canceled Monday Two municipalities canceled their regular meetings Monday night due to the extreme cold with wind chills approaching -50 degrees.

The Polo City Council rescheduled its meeting to Thursday, Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. at the city hall, 115 S. Franklin Ave. The Forreston Village

Board has not yet selected a new date for its canceled Jan. 6 meeting. Both meetings are open to the public.

Concerns over busing in the cold From A1 he said. “They’re not always dressed for this kind of cold.� Experts said frostbite could occur on exposed skin within 15 minutes in the intense cold. Polo Superintendent Chris Rademacher said students’ safety is foremost in canceling classes for the cold. Part of the concern is that buses may stall even after they are loaded with students. “Our buses are inside, but we worry about the fuel gelling when it’s this cold,� he said. The Oregon and Polo

School Districts are each approximately 125 square miles. Forrestville Valley, which also called off school, is even larger at 180 square miles. Many students in the three districts live in rural areas. The extra vacation comes with a price, however — the three days will be made up at the end of the school year with students attending classes into June. Harn said the decision to close the county offices was made jointly by himself, county board chairman Kim Gouker, county engineer Curtis Cook, and presiding

judge Robert Hanson. The sheriff’s department call center received several calls of cars sliding off roadways or becoming stranded on the roads due to the drifting. Harn said the strong winds made roads drifted and treacherous. “The wind is strong, and visibility is bad,� Harn said Monday afternoon. “The north-south roads are especially bad. We’ve had numerous people we’ve had to pull out of the ditch. The county snowplows can hardly keep up with it when the wind is like this.�

In addition, the extreme cold created mechanical problems for the plow trucks, putting some of them in the shop for repairs. The end of the bonechilling cold was already in sight Tuesday with forecasters calling for temperatures to steadily warm up to highs in the 30s by Friday.

Ogle County Sheriff’s Police are searching for a Davis Junction man who is on the run. Sheriff Michael Harn and the sheriff’s department are seeking help from the public in locating Terry D. Maxwell, 56, who is wanted in connection with a residential burglary and armed violence that occurred shortly before 2 p.m. on Christmas Eve near Davis Junction. Deputies responded to a home in the 15,000 block of East Ill. 72 for a reported residential burglary in progress after a male subject was found inside the home. The suspect, who was later identified as Maxwell, threatened the victim with a metal bar, fled the location, and led Ogle County Sheriff’s Deputies on a high speed pursuit. The pursuit ended as the suspect entered Winnebago County while driving a maroon 1999 Dodge Concord that was recovered several days later by Ogle County detectives in the area of East State Street and Madison Street, Rockford.

Terry D. Maxwell

Detectives have obtained a $500,000 warrant for Maxwell, who was last know to be driving a white 1997 four-door Chevrolet Malibu with Illinois registration R998548. Maxwell was released from the Illinois Department of Corrections in September of 2013 and is currently out on parole for residential burglary. Anyone having information in locating Maxwell can contact Rockford Area Crime Stoppers at 815-963-7867 or Ogle-Lee Crime Stoppers at 888-228-4488. Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to Maxwell’s arrest.

Schools learn reimbursements will be slashed By Vinde Wells Editor An unexpected cut in state funding means the 12 school districts that are members of the Ogle County Educational Cooperative (OCEC) will have to come up with additional money from their already strained budgets. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) informed districts across

the state in November that reimbursement will be slashed in about half for board and room for students placed in private residential facilities for their education. Districts were informed that due to an increase in residential placements, sufficient funds are longer available to cover all the expenses. The reimbursement, formerly at nearly 100 percent, will be

prorated at 50 percent for 2013-14. Mike Noble, executive director of OCEC, said the announcement came long after budgets were set for the current fiscal year, which began July 1. “Had we known this in May, we could have budgeted for it,” he said. “The revenue we had expected to receive was cut in half. The districts will have to pick that up.”

Register to vote by Feb. 18 The last day to register to vote or make a change of address for the March 18 primary election is Tuesday, Feb. 18, Ogle County Clerk Rebecca Huntley said Tuesday. The only exception is the grace period registration and transfer of registration from Feb. 19 to March 15 at Huntley’s office on the first floor of the Ogle County Courthouse, 105 S. Fifth St., Oregon. Early voting will be conducted at the Ogle County Clerk’s office in the Ogle County Courthouse from March 3 through March 15 for all Ogle County precincts. Early voting will be conducted at the Flagg Township Building, 303 W. Ill. 38, Rochelle, from March 13-15 for Flagg and Dement

precincts only. The first day to vote an absentee ballot for the March 18 primary is Thursday, Feb. 6. The last day for mailing a ballot from the county clerk’s office is Thursday, March 13. Absentee voting may be done in person at the courthouse until 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 17. Huntley said Tuesday that her office at the courthouse complies with the Federal Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act. She said the courthouse is accessible to the handicapped for voter registration. She will sent a deputy registrar to the residence of any person who wishes to register to vote and is unable to go to a registrar. Huntley said temporarily physically handicapped voters

who find it difficult or nearly impossible to go to the polls on election day may now vote by absentee ballot without getting the signature of their physicians as long as they call her office and request an application. First time voters who registered by mail must vote in person, Huntley said. Absentee voters may vote in person at the courthouse. Huntley will send an absentee application to voters who request one. When the completed application is returned to Huntley, the ballot will be sent. For information or assistance with voting or registering to vote call the Ogle County Clerk at 815-732-1110 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Two students from districts in OCEC require residential placements. The total room and board cost for those students for the 2013-2014 school year is $308,983. In the past ISBE would have reimbursed that entire amount. However, with the recent memo, the state reimbursement will now only be $154,491. Noble said all districts in OCEC share in the cost of residential placement, not just the districts the affected students reside in. He said the state pays the reimbursement to OCEC on a monthly basis. The additional cost will be shared by the member districts, which include Oregon, Forrestville Valley, Polo, Meridian, Creston, Eswood, Kings, Rochelle

Elementary, Rochelle High School, Steward, Amboy, and Ashton-Franklin Center. Oregon Superintendent Tom Mahoney said OCEC spares individual districts from having to shoulder the entire cost of room and board for residential placements. “We’re very fortunate in that we share that cost across the co-op. If this agreement wasn’t in place the two districts with students in residential placements would be responsible for the additional $77,245 each,” he said. “With state aide and revenues already tight for districts this added expense could significantly impact their budget. With the Ogle County Educational Cooperative spreading the expenses over all districts,

it lightens the unexpected financial burden for individual districts with students placed in private facilities. “ Polo Superintendent Chris Rademacher agreed. “That’s the beauty of the co-op,” he said. “We help the other districts.” Mahoney said this cut comes on top of state cuts in General State Aid and transportation reimbursement. “It’s just another instance of unstable funding,” he said. Forrestville Valley Interim Superintendent Jane Eichman voiced concern as well. “It’s unfortunate we’re being hit in so many different directions,” she said.

Take preventative steps to avoid any house fires By Rob Hough Mt. Morris Fire Chief Heating equipment is one of the leading causes of home fires during the winter months. According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency), in 2011 heating equipment was involved in an estimated 53,600 U.S. home structure fires, causing 400 civilian deaths, 1,520 civilian injuries, and $893 million in direct property damage. Heating equipment is a leading cause of home fires during the months of December, January and February, and trails only cooking equipment in home fires year-round with 14 percent of all fires. With some of the season’s coldest temperatures forecast in the next few weeks here are a few quick safety tips to help keep you safe and warm this winter Safety tips When buying a new space heater, make sure it carries the mark of an independent testing laboratory. Install your stationary (fixed) space heater according to manufacturer’s instructions or applicable

codes or better yet, have it installed by a professional. Keep things that can burn, such as paper, bedding or furniture, at least 3 feet away from heating equipment. Plug your electric-powered space heater into an outlet with sufficient capacity and never into an extension cord. Use the proper grade of the proper fuel for your liquid-fueled space heater, and never use gasoline in any heater not approved for gasoline use. Refuel only in a well-ventilated area and when the equipment is cool. In your fireplace or wood stove, use only dry, seasoned wood to avoid the build-up of creosote, an oily deposit that easily catches fire and accounts for most chimney fires and the largest share of home heating fires generally. Use only paper or kindling wood, not a flammable liquid, to start the fire. Do not use artificial logs in wood stoves. Make sure your fireplace has a sturdy screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room. Allow fireplace and woodstove ashes to cool before disposing in a metal container, which is kept a safe distance from your home.

Turn off space heaters whenever the room they are in is unoccupied or under circumstances when manufacturer’s instructions say they should be turned off. Portable space heaters are so easy to knock over in the dark that they should be turned off when you go to bed, but make sure your primary heating equipment for the bedrooms is sufficient to avoid risks to residents from severe cold. Do not use your oven to heat your home. Make sure fuel-burning equipment is vented to the outside, that the venting is kept clear and unobstructed, and that the exit point is properly sealed around the vent, all of which is to make sure deadly carbon monoxide does not build up in the home. Inspect all heating equipment annually, and clean as necessary. Have a smoke alarm on each floor of your home and test it monthly. Have a carbon monoxide alarm within 15 feet of the sleeping area and test it monthly. Have an escape plan and practice it.

Sharon Atkins stopped her clocks, covered her mirrors, and put on her black “widow’s weeds.” She is in deep mourning during the years 1840 through 1910, and she will respectfully and lightheartedly discuss these societal customs in a program on Monday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Oregon United Methodist Church, courtesy of the Friends of the Oregon Library. She has often heard from people following her presentation that they “didn’t know if they were going to like this topic,” but to their surprise they “found it fascinating.”

Atkins, Roscoe, will be dressed from head to toe in her black mourning garb. She will explain how funerals used to be held in private homes and how they transitioned to the funeral homes of today. She will treat society’s elaborate and strict rules regarding how the deceased should be honored at death and how they should be buried and mourned for two years. She will also explore superstitions and folk tales, tips for genealogists, social restrictions placed on widows, men and children’s mourning garb, how to tell

if an old photograph is of a person in mourning, and how to date a photo by the clothing, hair jewelry and artwork made of hair such as shadow boxes. She encourages people to bring examples of hair art and funeral memorabilia to discuss, as well as clothing and other items that may be related to funerals. Refreshments will be served at the end of the program. Donations will be accepted and proceeds benefit future library programs. Bring a friend to experience an unusual program of a lost tradition.

Recycling options are available for residents As the holiday season comes to a close, here are some options for recycling much of the waste that we produce this time of year. For household recyclable waste like cans, bottles, plastic containers and paper products, take advantage of your curbside recycling program, if one is available. If the recycling bin is overflowing, use a tote or extra garbage can and set it out with other recycling containers. Flatten all boxes, plastic jugs and bottles to save space. Wrapping paper can be recycled, but do not include plastic bags, bows or ribbon. For those without curbside recycling, consider using

one of the Ogle County drop-off recycling stations located in Byron, Forreston, Monroe Center, Oregon, and Rochelle. For Polo area residents, a recycling container provided by Moring Disposal is located at Franklin and Locust Streets. A container provided by Advanced Disposal Service is located at the Orchard Hills Landfill in Davis Junction. Keep in mind that the recycling containers fill up quickly this time of year so as always, flattening all boxes and plastic containers is required. Recycle broken holiday string lights until Friday, Jan. 31, at fire stations in

Byron, Mt. Morris, Rochelle and Stillman Valley. Other locations are the Ogle County Courthouse or the Solid Waste Management Department, at the Village Halls of Forreston or Davis Junction, and at the Polo City Hall. Most consumer electronics such as TV’s and computers have been banned from landfills in Illinois. These items can not be thrown out with regular trash. Some electronics can be recycled at Secure Recycling Services in Dixon, Best Buy Stores, American TV store in Rockford, or Staples stores. The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department, the Byron

Forest Preserve District and Universal Recycling Technologies have two unstaffed drop off sites available for recycling certain electronics. Large walk-in containers are located at the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department, 909 West Pines Rd., Oregon, and at the Byron Forest Preserve District Stone Quarry parking lot, 6845 North German Church Rd., Byron. Check the list on-line or at the sites to make sure items are acceptable. The city of Rochelle offers an electronics recycling program for residents. Cell phones and laptops may be dropped off at the

Rochelle City Hall or the RMU Customer Service Center. Other acceptable items can be dropped off at the RMU Water Treatment lab in Rochelle. Residents should check with each entity to determine what is accepted for recycling. Finally, live Christmas trees can be recycled at the following locations until Sunday, Jan. 19. All decorations, lights and tinsel must be removed. Byron, Sunshine Park, Ill. 2 and South Peru Street Forreston, 407 North Locust St. Leaf River, 208 Railroad St. Monroe Center, Lichty’s Landscaping, 309 Pacific St.

Oregon, Park District Maintenance Department, Hill Street. Polo, 410 North Prairie St. Rochelle, Atwood Park, 10th Avenue and 20th Street. For Rochelle residents, the Street Department will chip trees at the curb during the first two weeks of January. Curbside collection of Christmas trees for recycling will be done by FFA groups on Saturday, Jan. 11 in Mt. Morris, Oregon, Byron, Polo, Adeline, Leaf River, German Valley and Forreston. For more information on recycling waste, call the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department at 815-732-4020 or go to www. oglecounty.org.

Take care during the winter to avoid frostbite As below freezing temperatures hit the state, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Dr. Lamar Hasbrouck reminded residents about two health conditions caused by cold weather that can lead to serious injury and even death — hypothermia and frostbite. “It is important to recognize the signs of hypothermia

and frostbite, how to treat these conditions and what you can do to avoid them,” said Hasbrouck. “Everyone should take precautions against hypothermia, but infants and the elderly are particularly at risk and should be monitored closely.” Hypothermia is a drop in body temperature to 95 degrees Fahrenheit (F) or

less and can be fatal if not detected promptly and treated properly. The condition usually develops over a period of time, anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Even consistent, mildly cool indoor temperatures of 60 to 65 degrees F can trigger hypothermia. Infants lose body heat

more quickly than adults, and the elderly often make less body heat because of a slower metabolism and less physical activity. IDPH recommends setting the thermostat above 65 degrees F and checking on elderly friends and neighbors frequently to ensure their homes are adequately heated. Signs of hypothermia

include: Forgetfulness, drowsiness, slurred speech, change in appearance, such as a puffy face, and weak pulse. Other signs include slow heartbeat, very slow, shallow breathing, coma or deathlike appearance, if the body temperature drops to below 86 degrees F. If these symptoms are noticed, take the person’s temperature. If it is 95 degrees F or below, call a doctor or ambulance, or take the victim directly to a hospital. A drop in temperature below 90 degrees can create a life-threatening situation. To prevent further heat loss, wrap the person in a blanket. Apply a hot water bottle or electric heating on a low setting to the person’s abdomen. If the person is alert, give small quantities of warm food or drink. Do not give a hypothermia victim a hot shower or bath. It could cause shock. Do not try to treat hypothermia at home. The condition should be treated in a hospital. Frostbite is caused by bitterly cold temperatures and typically affects exposed areas of the face (cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead), the ears, wrists, hands and feet. When spending time outdoors during cold weather, be alert for signs of frostbite. Frostbitten skin is whitish and stiff, and the area will feel numb rather than painful. Take immediate action if these signs are noticed. To treat frostbite, warm the affected part of the body gradually. Wrap the frostbitten area in blankets, sweaters, coats., etc. If no warm wrappings are available, place frostbitten hands under

armpits or use body heat to cover the affected area and seek medical attention immediately. Do not rub frostbitten areas. The friction can damage the tissue. Anyone who must go outdoors during below freezing temperatures and the wind-chill is below zero should dress properly for the weather. Wear several layers of lightweight clothing. The air between the layers of clothing acts as insulation to keep the body warmer. Wear head coverings. As much as 50 percent of body heat is lost through the head. Wear mittens rather than fingered gloves. The contact of fingers keeps hands warmer. Wear warm leg coverings and heavy socks, or two pairs of lightweight socks. Cover ears and lower part of the face. The ears, nose, chin, and forehead are most susceptible to frostbite. Covering the mouth with a scarf will help protect the lungs from directly inhaling extremely cold air. More information is available in the IDPH Weathering Winter booklet at http://www.idph.state.il.us/ public/books/weathering winter.htm. Providing essential health information during emergencies is one way IDPH is working toward becoming the state’s leading public health authority,and implementing IDPH’s Five Year Strategy.

Sauk Valley counties differ on off-budget funds By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media Both Ogle and Whiteside counties have funds that don’t appear in their budgets, but are reviewed by auditors, county officials said. Additionally, while Lee County and Ogle County have countywide credit card policies, according to officials, Whiteside County doesn’t. In a story last month, Sauk Valley Media reported on the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department’s administrative tow fund, which isn’t listed in the county budget and could be used at Sheriff Michael Harn’s discretion for various

department needs. Sauk Valley Media also reported on the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department’s credit card use, which included “training� meals at local restaurants several times a week, alterations to credit card bills, and personal purchases on county cards reimbursed directly to the credit card company. In Whiteside County, some of the county funds are listed off the budget because of state law or because that’s how they had been established, County Administrator Joel Horn said. Some of those funds, like the prisoner trust account, don’t directly involve the county board, he

said. Those funds still are public record, Horn explained, so the county isn’t avoiding being transparent. “I think they’re working out fine the way they are,â€? he said. “They are audited. It’s not as if there isn’t any oversight. They’re not at risk for abuse. ‌ It’s not as if there isn’t any oversight. There just isn’t the county board [oversight].â€? Lee County, however, lists all of its funds in the annual budget, Chairman Rick Ketchum said, and the county board appropriates money to those funds, which often are controlled by various department heads.

All funds are listed in the budget, Ketchum said, because that’s how the county has done it in the past. It’s also easier to track money and is more transparent, he said. Ogle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker said the Sheriff’s Department’s administrative tow fund and other funds weren’t listed on the budget because that’s the way it had always been done. Those funds were reviewed by the county’s auditors, he said, who haven’t raised concerns. However, Gouker wanted to have those funds listed in the budget for the next fiscal year, he said, because he didn’t like

that they had been off the budget. He also wants fund expenditures to be more transparent and be brought under more oversight. Credit card policies Ogle County established a credit card policy in 2013 on the recommendation of its auditors. Five departments in Ogle County have credit cards, according to a Freedom of Information Act request and interviews, and each department has been responsible for its own policy. Lee County has a countywide credit card policy, Ketchum said. “It’s pretty loose right at this point,� he said. “We’re

Whiteside County doesn’t have a credit card policy for the entire county government, Horn said. That’s the decision of each department and the elected officials in charge of those departments. “I don’t believe we have a countywide policy,â€? he said. “Each department would have its own policy. When I was in management services, we had a credit card, and our policy was that it would be only for gas and emergencies.â€?

Longtime assistant Polo football coach remembered By Ty Reynolds Sauk Valley Media When you spend a couple of decades in the coaching business, the stories are bound to stack up. Some become legendary. Such is the case with one story in particular about longtime Polo football assistant Terry Olson, who passed away Dec. 18 at the age of 71. “Terry was never hesitant about sharing his opinion with the officials,â€? fellow assistant and longtime friend Dale Hall said. “Now, Terry wasn’t big in stature, but he’d go out and question a call very loudly, but he’d always have Dwight [Sellers, the head coach] there to back him up. Dwight was a big guy, and Terry would yell at the ref with Dwight standing right behind him. The official might start over toward the sideline, then he’d take one look at Dwight standing behind Terry, and just shrug his shoulders and walk away. “Some of the officials called Terry ‘The Agitator’ after that.â€? It’s a story that is told over and over again as folks talk about the man who became known as “T-Boneâ€? in his later years, thanks to a joking moniker he incurred on one of many fishing trips to the Wisconsin Dells. “That happened all the time,â€? said Gary Ferb, who came into the Polo district as a young coach a few years after Olson. “Terry was always ‌ helping the officials, but he was always half-hidden behind Dwight while he was correcting everything he felt the officials were doing wrong. That struck me as one of the funniest sights on the sideline.â€? Olson and Hall were half of a quartet that spent 20 years coaching football for the Marcos. Along with fellow assistant Bill Jenkins, they served as Sellers’ righthand men from 1965-1985. Now Hall is the only one left, but the others will live on in his stories and the collective memory of the community of Polo. “It was such an interesting group to be around and learn from,â€? Ferb said. “The way those guys all tied together and meshed – and they had such different personalities and styles – was amazing. “I always say that everything I learned about coaching, I learned from those guys.â€? sss In addition to his football assistant duties, Olson taught elementary school math and also coached seventh grade basketball. Hall was the eighth grade coach, and another vivid memory sticks out and gets Hall chuckling. “There was always this med kit sitting next to the bench, and Terry always

sat on that instead of the bench,� Hall said. “Anyway, this one day, there were just a ton of fouls called in the seventh-grade game, and Terry was sitting there, agitated, telling the officials how many unnecessary calls he thought they were making. “So, his game gets done, and he goes down into the locker room with his kids, and my guys start warming up. Terry comes back up, walks in the gym, and sits back down on the med kit. One of the officials walks over and Ts him up, hits him with a technical. “He hadn’t said a word, just walked in and sat back down. I asked the ref what it was for, and he said he should have done it in during the first game, but he didn’t want Terry to get all upset.� With Olson teaching at the elementary school, Hall said there were times, especially after the season, when the other three wouldn’t see him for weeks or even months. But every time they got together, it was like no time had passed at all, “like we hadn’t missed a beat.� Such was the friend who was Terry Olson. And it wasn’t just fellow coaches who felt that way. “Former players were always calling Dad for advice, even years after they had grown up and moved on,� Olson’s older son, Chris, said. “Along the way, he became friends with a lot of his former players; over the years, the age gap between them really closed.� “I think a lot of the guys were a little frightened of him, and they had a healthy respect for Dad,� younger son Scott added. “They played their hearts out for him, and that respect went both ways. There was always an open-door policy at our house, and it’s rare to get the chance to hang out with somebody you respected and feared growing up. A lot of those guys ended up being good friends with Dad.� sss Olson and his coaching cohorts ushered in a golden age of Polo football. The Marcos finished .500 or above in 17 of those 21 seasons, including 12 of the final 13 of Sellers’ tenure, and made the playoffs six times in the nine seasons between 1977 and 1985. “You couldn’t have better guys coaching you,� former player Bruce Scholl said, “because they always had the kids first at heart.� “They definitely enjoyed the kids,� said neighbor and former player Dan Pontnack. “He made you work extremely hard, but he wasn’t afraid to put his arm around you and tell you how good a job you did. He was fun to play for.� Within the close-knit community of Polo, the Olsons’ neighborhood was like a community unto itself. The Pontnacks lived across

the street, the Sellers were a few houses away, and the Jenkins were nearby as well. Cookouts in backyards were a common occurrence, and the parents of the kids spent time together while the kids were out playing on the weekends. “We were all pretty much part of one big family, really,â€? Pontnack said. “Chris and Scott were always coming down to our house, all of us going out to play basketball until 9 p.m. before riding our bikes home. Terry was my dad’s best friend, and I considered Terry a friend of mine ‌ as did a lot of his former players.â€? Scholl was one of those, and he had the unique opportunity to see his kids coached by Olson as well. After Olson retired from teaching, he sold insurance, but served as a volunteer assistant on the basketball team when Bruce’s sons Matt and Scott played for the Marcos in the late 2000s. “That added so much, because my kids got to see what I had experienced when I was a player,â€? Scholl said. “I felt that was great for them, and Terry never changed. He was the same in 2007 as he was in 1978, always wanting what was best for the kids. He was quite a man; I was very fortunate to play for him, and my kids were, too.â€? sss Terry Olson’s sons were also fortunate enough to get to play for their dad. With mom Judy and sister Heather always cheering them on, Chris played for his dad in seventh grade basketball, while Scott played football and basketball for Terry in high school. “It was maybe the hardest thing I’ve ever done, playing for Dad,â€? Chris said, “but after it was over, it was the most gratifying thing, and I was most appreciative of that chance. He was always so proud of all of us, Scott and Heather and I, and the respect we had for him was second to none.â€? Scott was on the 1986 regional title team, a year Terry took over as coach because no one else was interested. Scott said playing for his father that season wasn’t difficult, even though he garnered a bit more attention from his coach as the team’s leading scorer. “We had made it to the playoffs in football, so we didn’t have that much time to practice before the first games,â€? Scott recalled. “But my friends and I had all played for him in seventh grade, so we just ran the exact same stuff that we had back then ‌ and it worked. “I remember one game, we were up like 15 points or so in the second half, and I threw a pass to the wing that was intercepted. I chased the guy at three-quarters speed, and Dad called timeout after the layup. He met me at half-

court, finger in my face, and didn’t talk to anybody the entire timeout except me. That’s just who Dad was: very verbose, always finding ways to make you excel and want to win.â€? sss The word most often heard when talking about Terry Olson is “respect.â€? He had it for everybody he taught and coached and befriended, and they had it for him ‌ in spades. It was a blend of things that was the reason for this, not the least of which was his work ethic and dedication. “Terry was a guy who had high standards,â€? Hall said. “He expected a lot out of the kids who played, but he didn’t expect any more out of them than what he gave himself.â€? “He worked so hard, and he expected as much or more

from himself as he did from the kids,� Scholl said. “I was taller than him in junior high, but he commanded so much respect that I never felt like I was looking down on him, only looking up to him.� It was his way with kids that sticks out most to Ferb. As a young science teacher turned coach, Ferb was always trying to find better ways to reach his students and players. He got a firsthand tutorial from the man who taught in the same classroom right after him. “How he handled the kids and interacted with them was the most impressive thing,� Ferb said. “The way he could inspire the kids, knowing what it took to get them going. He could chew out a kid who needed a talking-to, but then he could turn around and put his arm around the kid and be joking with him a few minutes

later.� It was the same way at home, something both of Terry’s sons say they were lucky to have. And while it was something they appreciated in its time, their father’s impact on themselves and the community of Polo – which Chris calls “a special community to his family� – has revealed itself even more the past few weeks. “I think Dad was the glue that held the family together, and we’re trying to pick up the pieces now,� Chris Olson said. “The tributes, the cards, the number of people at the funeral and the wake, it’s so overwhelming. As a player of his, I knew the impact he had on lives, but you just don’t realize the extent of it until you see it for yourself; it’s just been phenomenal.�

A total of 27 tickets will be put into the final pull then on Feb. 1 to win the car. Polo Athletic Boosters raised $5,500 last year and was the third top selling booster program in all the clubs involved.

The money was invested, in partnership with the Polo School District, in refurbishing the gymnasium. This year the club’s goal is to raise $10,000. Tickets can be purchased at First State Bank ShannonPolo, by contacting booster club president Jennifer Grobe at 815-677-1188, or at any home boys and girls basketball games through

Campaign was a great success

Dear Editor, The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep the Wreath Redâ&#x20AC;? campaign was a great success again this year thanks to all of your hard work! The program is very simple, a wreath is placed on the front of the Mt. Morris Firehouse. The wreath was covered in red bulbs. If a fire occurs during the holiday season caused by holiday decorations, a bulb will be changed to white. Thanks to our safety conscious citizens we were able to keep the wreath red for the entire holiday season. The Mt. Morris Fire Department truly appreciates everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Fortunate to live in Polo

Dear Editor, During the holidays when talking with friends who grew up in Polo and now live away, I was reminded how fortunate we are to have such a great community. For those of us who have lived here for many years, we often look at what we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a grocery store, senior living, and a Starbucks. But maybe we take too much of what we have for granted. The Polo community should be very proud of their efforts in 2013.

There have been some amazing contributions this past year. Not only have we collected over $80,000 for renovating our local swimming pool, but our community has contributed funds to renew our playground equipment at Centennial School. Adding to the list, when the senior center needed money for a new roof, over $60,000 was donated. But wait, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all. How about the US Cellular promotion which earned our school district $25,000? Not to mention the Kidz CafĂŠ lunch program and Project Christmas Star. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you will find many communities like ours. I have also witnessed many acts of kindness throughout the year from both tragedy and celebration. People helping people. Families

helping families. Yes, Polo has many challenges just as many other small communities face. But maybe we need to be reminded about what Polo has â&#x20AC;&#x201C; citizens that know how to step up the plate for a good cause. I could go on and on about our social and civic organizations, school district, food pantry, local businesses, sports teams, parks, and churches. But it all comes down to the people who live here volunteering their time, contributing money to worthy projects, and helping those in need. This is what makes us unique. So Polo, give yourself a pat on the back. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve earned it. I am very proud to be a member of this community. Based on the events of 2013, I am confident of our future. Mark Scholl Polo

Forreston girls and boys basketball will hold an alumni game on Saturday, Jan. 11 in the Forreston High School gym with the girls game beginning at 3 p.m. and the boys at 3:30 p.m. Following the alumni game the Forreston boys will play Milledgville with the freshsoph game at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity game to follow at 7 p.m. All alumni, including past coaches and their immediate families, will be admitted free to the game and are invited to catch up with fellow alumni for pizza in the high school media center after the alumni game. Game match-ups will be determined by the number of alumni participating. Twenty minute games will be played with decades playing against each other based on alumniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduating year falling on an even or odd year. Anyone interested in attending and/or playing in the alumni game is asked Coach Jonathan Schneiderman at jschneiderman@ fvdistrict221.org or 815-275-1827 for the boys game, and Jane Slick jeslick3@yahoo. com or 815-266-1095 for the girls game.

In high school sports, it is the head coach that usually receives the acclaim and/ or criticism. However, an absolutely essential component for any sport is that of assistant coach. One of those folks is Doug Engle and he is someone that Oregon is blessed to have. A testimony to Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value as a member of the support cast takes place this Saturday at Oak Park. There, Engle and six other coaches from throughout the state will be inducted into the Illinois Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall-of-Fame. The honor is even more prestigious considering Engle is the only assistant coach among that bunch. Nearly 40 coaches were nominated and it is even more rare for an assistant to make the cut. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the pleasure of interacting with Doug for several years and am elated that a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;behind-thescenesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guy like him is being recognized. First of all, track and field does not get all the attention like the so-called major sports of football and basketball. Additionally, Engleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working headquarters are the shot put and discus throwing rings. Those are as far from the running track as any event. Basically, you have a man toiling in relative obscurity decade after decade with little acclaim, other than the rewards he reaps for developing cherished relationships with his athletes and having a hand in the success they have enjoyed. For a guy like Doug, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably enough. And, one of those former athletes knows it is a 2-way street, this coach-athlete relationship. Darren Moser, a multiple throwing state-placer and school record-holder in the late 1990s, nominated Engle for the Hall-of-Fame. Moser, like a multitude of Oregon throwers, saw Engle as both a mentor and friend. As a coach, be it head or assistant, can you really ask for anything more than that? What stands out most to me about Engle was the technician side of him. Teaching the throws is especially complicated. For example, the discus has something outlandish like 30 different moves a thrower needs to make for full effectiveness. Without a clinician as coach, even the most physically gifted athlete stands little chance of having success as a shot putter or discus thrower. One of the criteria for election into the Hall-ofFame is coaching record. Engleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record speaks for

itself. Every single year he has coached, he has qualified at least one thrower for the IHSA state meet, nearly 70 all together. His latest project, shot putter Shannon Cullen, placed third in the state in 2013 and perhaps will give Engle a first-ever state champ. Moser is still a little bummed he just missed out on that honor, but Engle is okay with wherever his charges have finished. That man seems genuinely happy to be a part of these young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, safe in the knowledge that he is helping each and everyone of them become better throwers and better people. Shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that be what coaching is about instead of concerning oneself with state medals? I pretty sure that how Doug sees it after watching him put as much effort into helping the least talented throwers as he does to the elite of the bunch. On a side note, Engle will be joining a few other members of the ITCCCA Hall-of-Fame with connections to Oregon. Art Carlson, one of Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friends and former Hawk head track and cross-country coach was inducted in 1999, not too long after leading Oregon to a state title in cross country. A year before that, another former Oregon coach and driving force of an all-weather track for the school in the mid 1970s, Joe Mortimer was named. One of Engleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throwing peers and father of Oregon athletic director Mike Lawton, Rich Lawton of Dixon was a member of the 2005 ITCCCA class. Lawtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record is very similar to Engle in that he had a long-time streak of sending throwers downstate. In 2000, Lawton was believed to have set a precedent for the state meet by having four different throwers place in the both the shot put and discus. Like Engle, Lawton had the technical expertise to accomplish remarkable coaching feats. Finally, joining Engle in the 2014 class of inductees Irv Sanderson of Prophetstown. Sanderson, who coached track and field for nearly 50 years, had a state pole vault champ and Class A record holder in 1980 by the name of Dave Gilbert. Gilbert has been a resident of Oregon for decades and has been a fellow assistant track coach with Engle for most of that time.

Salstrom Banjo Company founded in the 60s From A1

has to teach you in double time fashion!’ … The next day I met a most remarkable 75 year old gentleman, Gus Stamm.” (Posted August 11, 2011 on Banjo Hangout) “Gus Stamm [was] one of the more remarkable people I have met during my journey. [He] came to Oregon, Illinois from one of the Chicago suburbs such as St. Charles, Illinois. Gus was an elderly gentleman and the perfect ‘idea’ man. Gus would take his ideas, do enough research to get started and [then] find people to carry on. One of his well-written books was Veterinary Guide for Farmers. Gus Stamm was not a veterinarian! Gus came to Oregon, Illinois to meet … Phil Salstrom, a master [of] machine wood carving and business owner who he thought might manufacture 5-string banjo necks to convert tenor-plectrum [banjos]. Folk was in! The two people formed an understanding and started to develop a 5-string replacement neck to be sold by Gus Stamm. [But] two strong personalities such as Phil and Gus developed differences! There was one authority at Rockwood Carvers and that was Phil! This was about 1962.” (Posted August 8, 2011 on Banjo Hangout) “This time period is around July 1962. … My first encounter with Gus Stamm was most memorable as he left me with a clear understanding that he was a way-ahead type person in the idea category. … Gus Stamm and Phil Salstrom (Rockwood Carvers) had come to a prior agreement to produce banjo replacement necks. These were to be produced at … Rockwood Carvers [which] at this time was a highly refined manufacturer of (to mention just several) Queen Anne legs and post turnings — Kohler Furniture in Naperville, Illinois being one of Rockwood’s larger customers. Gus Stamm had been selling his replacement (5-string and extra-long) neck kit thru various ads, such as in Popular Mechanics and so forth. He would sell a customer through mail order and then attempt to build it in a reasonable time (and deliver it) to keep the customer happy. Gus thought by assigning this to Rockwood he could move on in the ‘idea’ business and simply handle the sales as needed via his various ads. Well! My first day at Rockwood Carvers started [at] 6:30 a.m. in the boiler room. Gus Stamm walks through the door about 9 a.m. with an armload of fingerboard and neck materials in one arm and shakes my hand with an introduction and says, ‘Where do you intend to work?’ That was my first day with Gus Stamm. Gus didn’t stop talking, starting with ‘How to divide a scale’ — his way of course — through endless conversations about his travels. Gus was a real person full of accomplishment over his 75 year existence. That day I think I slotted about 10 fingerboards (by hand) and believe me I was thinking about a more expeditious way to do that job! “All was not well with the

He this might be an opportunity said to me, ‘Dave, I’m going for you.

You size Steinway grand) plus other will be working with him and musical instruments: guitar, I want you to learn all what he banjo, harp and so forth. Often their conversations would occur in the early morning as Margaret would return from work and Phil would be leaving for his day. This is exactly when it happened. Margaret asked if Dave might be able to build a banjo for her. Phil Salstrom committed me to that task. I saw Phil that morning when he returned from Phil Salstrom III, Oregon, plays a Salstrom banjo, his usual mail run and errands. His words were something continuing a long-standing family tradition. Photo by to this effect: ‘Margaret would Chris Johnson

like you to make a banjo for her and how long before you might have this?’ In my immediate[ly] occurring thoughts, Gus Stamm’s pamphlet [‘Banjo Making, It’s Easy’] went passing through, so my answer was: ‘That shouldn’t take long.’ Boy, was that a start to a most memorable personal journey! The boiler room was fullup, the banjo for Margaret Salstrom was finished, it noted okay. It made noise and Margaret was tickled pink! From that point forward the Salstrom Banjo Company started to take shape. I needed space so the decision was made to rent a small storefront in downtown Oregon, Illinois directly across from the old movie theater. A good homestyle restaurant was located within eyesight of the storefront … and pretty soon, by word of mouth, I was having visitors asking for tours of the banjo shop. Then the banjo players [and] salesmen passing thru would make it a point to stop by and help with my design and playability thoughts. Most of the time these players were Tenor Plectrum players but not always. By that time my neck construction was decent and my ability to make noise was coming along also. I had noted over the course of time the various brands of instruments passing through my shop and on several occasions several of the regulars allowed me to dis-assemble their pride and joys. I would make my observations and simple notations with basic drawings put into notes. Then one day [a] silverware salesman stops by with a Vegavox and then returns about a month later with a Bella Voce! Now, by having access to those marvelous creations of yesteryear I was starting to think a bit where I would fit into the whole of things and how I would need to master what had already been done way before me. “As one might imagine, I was spending a lot of money and sales were not sufficient to account for this. Phil Salstrom was the man who financed this effort; [he] believed in the progress to date but said to me: ‘When are you going to freeze this design thing and sell this product?’ By this time … it’s 1963 and I happen to be a 1941 baby. So, for a 22 year old who happens to start out in the morning sweeping up from yesterday’s mess, [to] build the product, engineer the changes, make the changes, make it customer acceptable and hopefully saleable, I’m pretty busy. I didn’t have the total answer for Phil Salstrom that day but … my mind was working on it. So far this effort had grown in material things (tools, fixtures, etc.) and had been funded by Rockwood Carvers, Inc. which was owned by Phil Salstrom. [He] said: ‘We are going to start the Salstrom Banjo Company and I will take care of that legally.’ And he did so. … There was an overall theme starting to develop in my thinking and only my young age prohibited it from taking form at a faster pace. Phil Salstrom allowed me the latitude to get ‘it’ figured out. More to follow.” (Posted August 19, 2011 on Banjo Hangout) But more did not follow from Dave Markle, so far as I can discover, and in March 2012 at age 70 he died suddenly at Freeport. Therefore I have gone back to what he posted somewhat earlier on Banjo Hangout at the end of July 2011. There he told briefly what happened during and after 1963:

This picture shows a Salstrom Concertone banjo headstock. This banjo belongs to Randal Morton, a professional banjo player in Nashville, Tenn.. He is one of many pro banjo players who covet the “holy grail” tone of Salstrom banjos. It has some very nice inlay work. Photo supplied

My original effort when first getting started was to attempt to satisfy the [banjo] players at the Red Garter in Chicago, Illinois. I would work during the day and then drive to downtown Chicago where these tenorplectrum (Bacon & Day) players would try my changes. [A] thinner resonator was used in conjunction with a ‘tube-a-phone’ type tone ring to give that B&D bash demanded by these players. Enter in Ralph Robinson – and of course Marlene. In the first place, Ralph was [a] most unique and talented free spirit. He did some of my first headplate inlay work from his place in the Columbus [Ohio] area. Then when he and Marlene decided to move out to the Oregon, Illinois area to help with the banjo shop, he of course thought that the tenorplectrum people were [a] novelty. … As the Artist and Concertone [Salstrom banjo models] developed and matured, the resonator was increased in depth to provide that certain projection. Then Ralph and I went to Nashville. When I think back on those travels, I’m still amazed at how many people Ralph knew. At this time we [were] building our experience level and exposure, making [a] few changes but not dramatic. … Bob Thomas of the old WLS barn dance might have a Concertone with [a] thin resonator. … The Concertone was the last to be added to the line, and of course it was the most elaborate at the time. [First came] the Allegro, [then the] Artist, and [finally the] Concertone. Fender of course carried on with these series names. (Posted July 29, 2011 on Banjo Hangout. As regards Fender, keep reading. Concerning the banjos’ tone rings, Dave Markle added that: Woodhaven Industries in Oregon, Illinois made our special[ly] cast tone rings. … Gary Wood (owner) resides at the top of his class par excellance! In addition, Woodhaven Industries also supplied the Oettinger type tail piece [which] was part of the original theme for the Salstrom. To incorporate items of [a] singular nature with the new was what we wanted to strive for and this particular component fit! Sand cast and beautifully finished. Also with five fingers.

As regarding the necks of the banjos, Dave Markle says all our necks were carved in doubles on Salstrom carving machines (in this case eightspindle pattern machines). (Posted July 30, 2011 on Banjo Hangout) Banjo devotees can find other technical details set forth by Dave Markle in the archives on Banjo Hangout, starting a few days earlier on July 28, 2011. In the mid-1960s, trying to cut his losses, Phil Salstrom almost managed to sell the banjo company to the Baldwin music company, but on the day when Baldwin executives were touring the Salstrom premises, someone who was there for an unrelated reason convinced them to consider buying Ode banjos instead, and shortly later Phil Salstrom sold his banjo company to Fender Electric Instruments, Inc. Dave Markle was then hired by Fender to continue making the banjos in southern California. Markle says: The items I shipped from Illinois to Fullerton [California] were transferred in maybe four Allied moving vans and deposited on the floor of the new facility. I was the first one to move into 1300 East Valencia [in Fullerton]. Forrest White [of Fender Electric Instruments] allowed me to go through several [Fender] departments and interview interested people who might want to transfer into the new banjo operation. Olaf Keil was one of the multi-talented and was [a] huge asset during the start-up. The banjo necks were of course much different in construction and overall manufacture than a Fender guitar neck. Slowly the system started coming together again with talented people and good tools. … [Several years later] I left 1300 East Valencia [in the] second half [of] 1969. (Posted July 29, 2011 on Banjo Hangout) That ended Dave Markles’ career of making banjos. For the context within the Fender company at that time, see the book Fender: “The Inside Story,” by Forrest White, especially around page 164. Several months after leaving Fender, Markle set up a company called Mar Pearl which inlaid pearls on the heads of musical instruments, including Martin and Gibson guitars, and he continued running that business for the rest of his life.

Willis M. Collman, 88, German Valley, died on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, at Freeport Memorial Hospital after a brief illness. He was born Oct. 6, 1925 in German Valley, the son of William and Marie (Buttel) Collman and attended Collman Grade School and Pleasant Prairie Academy. He served in Korea as a corporal in the U. S.

FFA groups will help collect Christmas trees Jan. 11 Local high school Future Farmers of America groups will be volunteering their time on Saturday, Jan. 11 to collect Christmas trees. The trees will be picked up at the curb and taken to a local chipping site where they will be chipped into mulch. Trees, with all their

decorations removed, must be at the curb by 8 a.m. on Jan. 11. The FFA groups that will be participating this year are Byron High School FFA, Oregon High School FFA, Polo High School FFA, and Forreston High School FFA. The students will be

canvassing the Byron area, the cities of Oregon and Polo, and the villages of Mt. Morris, Forreston, Leaf River, Baileyville, German Valley, and Adeline. Remove all plastic bags from trees. Wreaths and garland will not be picked up. Chipping the trees into

mulch is good for the environment as the trees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take up valuable landfill space nor do they pollute the air if burned. The mulch will then be available at no charge for residents to use for their landscaping needs. Residents may bring a shovel and

container and take home free mulch when available at the drop off sites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great opportunity for these students to help with a program that benefits local residents by making it convenient to recycle their Christmas trees,â&#x20AC;? said Solid Waste Department Director,

Steve Rypkema. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, they can earn community service hours and help the environment. We appreciate their helpâ&#x20AC;?. For further information, call the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department at 815-732-4020.
