Dog bite victim is recovering By Vinde Wells Editor Eight days after she was viciously attacked by three dogs, a rural Ashton woman was recuperating at home. Aneda Ebert, 63, 3413 Dugdale Rd., said Tuesday that she is very grateful for the concern people have expressed for her and the help thatâ€™s been offered. â€œThe support has been overwhelming. People have been wonderful,â€? she said. Ebert suffered severe injuries to her neck, shoulder, arms, and leg, and spent four days at KSB Hospital, Dixon, before being released April 25. â€œIâ€™m healing â€” my nurse (husband Larry) says I look better every day,â€? said Ebert, who appeared in good spirits despite the ordeal. â€œIâ€™m mauled. Iâ€™m just a mess. I
have stitches everywhere.â€? She was almost home from her morning jog April 21 when two pit bulls and a smaller brown dog ran out of a neighborâ€™s yard and attacked her. Larry, who was out riding his bike, was some distance done the road and saw the dogs shaking something. He soon realized they were attacking his wife and sped to her rescue, scaring the dogs off. â€œThey started biting at my elbows and I knew I was in trouble,â€? Ebert said. â€œThen they got more vicious and they were growling. They got me down, and they had me by the neck. I protected my face. Larry saw them drag me at least 15 feet. I canâ€™t believe the grip they had. There was nothing I could do. And then I saw Larryâ€™s face.â€? Dr. Tom Champley, Ogle
County Animal Control Administrator, said last week that Larryâ€™s quick action likely save her life. â€œItâ€™s a good thing her husband was right there or it might have been a fatality,â€? Champley said. Ebert said she was shocked by the viciousness of the attack. â€œThe brutality is what bothers me,â€? she said. â€œIt was so savage.â€? Initially, Champley had reported the attack came from the two put bulls, a male and a female. However, he said Tuesday that further investigation showed that the third dog, owned by the same person, also took part in the attack. He said he did not know the breed of the smaller dog. All three dogs were impounded by Animal Control and have been
A Rochelle woman told the Ogle County Board recently that the sheriff has too many duties. Diane McNeilly said the Ogle County League of Women Voters recently did a study of several Illinois county sheriffs and discovered that the Ogle County Sheriff is responsible for more departments, employees, and money than his counterparts. â€œIt doesnâ€™t allow him enough time to do statemandated duties,â€? she told the county board April 15. Besides overseeing the Sheriffâ€™s and Corrections Departments, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn is also in charge of the Ogle County Emergency Management Agency, the countyâ€™s Buildings & Grounds, Information Technology, telecommunications, and security for the courts as well as all county properties. In all, he oversees more than 80 county employees and a large share of the countyâ€™s budget. â€œThe Ogle County Sheriff is responsible for more departments and funds than other counties surveyed. Checks and balances and supervision can be an issue in delivering services,â€? according to the report McNeilly presented to the board. McNeilly said the recommendation of the
League of Women Voters is that the county board remove Buildings & Grounds and Information Technology from the sheriffâ€™s duties and instead appoint a department head for each. The recommendation calls for two new department heads who should â€œreport through the regular county committee structure.â€? McNeilly said only seven of the 11 counties contacted responded to the organizationâ€™s request for information. Ogle County officials did not respond, she said, and officials in three other counties told her Harn had requested they not participate. McNeilly said the three other counties that did not respond were Boone, LaSalle, and Whiteside. The counties that participated were Carroll, DeKalb, Lee, Kendall, McHenry, Stephenson, and Winnebago. In none of the responding counties does the sheriff serve as computer services director, maintain the Information Technology System or maintain county buildings. Winnebago County was the only one where, like Ogle, the sheriff also serves as the Emergency Management Agency director and provides security for all the countyâ€™s buildings and grounds. Harn did not respond to a phone call from Ogle County Newspapers seeking his comments for this story.
euthanized with the consent of the owner, Champley said. Ebert said the dogs had never posed a problem for her before, although they have for some of her neighbors. â€œThe dogs have been there a long time,â€? she said. Another neighbor had reported the dogs more than once for running at large, she said. Champley said Tuesday that he is unaware of any previous complaints being made to Animal Control. A spokesman for Ogle County Stateâ€™s Attorney Michael Rock said Tuesday morning that prosecutors are working with law enforcement officers to determine if charges will be filed against the dogsâ€™ owner.

Youths must know dangers and consequences of drinking By Vinde Wells Editor Officials at a meeting on underage drinking last week stressed the importance of making youths aware of both the dangers and consequences of drinking alcohol. Joanie Padilla, Director of Health Education and Emergency Preparedness at the Ogle County Health Department, told the audience of approximately 30 people that studies have shown that some youngsters begin drinking as early as the sixth grade. â€œThe younger they start, the more chance there is for problems,â€? she said. Mandy Wood, a counselor at Sinnissippi Centers, Inc., said parents and other adults should begin talking to youngsters as early as
possible about the dangers drinking alcohol can bring. â€œTalk to your kids honestly about alcohol,â€? Wood said. â€œWhen an incident occurs, talk about what happened and how to make better choices. Make sure they have consequences.â€? Padilla and Wood were two of the presenters who spoke at a meeting organized by Project LEAD of Ogle County April 24 at Nash Recreation Center to discuss the increasing problem of underage drinking. Project LEAD (Leaders Encouraging Abstinence from Drugs) of Ogle County is a recently formed partnership between Lutheran Social Service of Illinois (LSSI) and Ogle County schools, businesses, parents, social service agencies and government services.
In This Weekâ€™s Edition...
The community coalition is working to reduce substance abuse among Ogle County youth. Padilla cited statistics that show 71 percent of high school students nationwide report drinking alcohol, and 21 percent said they started before age 13. She said drinking can cause significant brain injury to teenagers and younger youth as well as physical problems because their bodies and internal organs are not fully developed. Alcohol is also a factor in a significant percentage of fatal vehicle crashes, especially those involving teenagers, Padilla said. â€œWeâ€™re talking about the very lives of our youth,â€? she said. â€œI was formerly a health care worker. I x-rayed a lot of LSSI counselor Kris Noble makes a point with Russ Senti April 24 after the underage Turn to A3

doing it, it tastes good, and it helps teens escape from reality. Noble said the reasons she hears are curiosity and the desire to be socially acceptable and like others. She said she is concerned because teens and even younger children are drinking far more and far oftener today than in the past.

dead kids.” “Kids need to know that when they drink alcohol they’re pouring a chemical into their bodies that is a toxin,” said Kris Noble, a counselor from LSSI. Parents play a key role in preventing alcohol use among children, Wood said. “Parents can be extremely effective in preventing teen drinking,” she said. She said parents should find out where their children are going, who they will be with, and whether or not alcohol will be available. “Kids really do like boundaries,” Wood said. “It’s okay for your kids to hate you sometimes — it probably means you’re being a good parent.” Russ Senti, executive director of Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center, said many times parents are providing the alcohol and the setting for their own children and their children’s friends. “Get to know the kids your kids are hanging with and get to know their parents,” he said. Padilla agreed. “Don’t be afraid to confront your children. Don’t be afraid to get medical professionals involved.” Ogle County Assistant State’s Attorney Ann Switzer talks with Byron Police Chief Assistant Ogle County Todd Murray and Oregon Police Officer Rich Wilkinson April 24 after the underage State’s Attorney Ann Switzer drinking meeting sponsored by Project LEAD.

Ralph and Jeanine (Sorge) Larson will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on May 2. They met in Richland Center, Wis., and married in Muscoda, Wis., at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. On the family farm, Jeanine’s parents raised turkeys that would serve as the main course at their wedding reception. The turkeys were prepared and cooked by the ladies of the church. After their two-week honeymoon through Canada and Michigan, they started their family in Richland Center. The daughter of Rudy and Marie Sorge, Jeanine graduated from Blue River High School and became a registered nurse at St. Mary’s School of Nursing in Madison, Wis. Ralph, the son of Ralph and Maysie Larson, was raised in Shorewood Hills, Wis., and is a Carroll University (Waukesha) graduate. He spent much of his career in the banking industry.

Recycle electronics on Saturday Free event will be in Oregon By Reita Nicholson Administrative Assistant Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department An electronic recycling event is coming up for residents to recycle their old or broken electronics in a safe and responsible way. The recycling event is scheduled for Saturday, May 3 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The entrance will be located at the Ogle County Farm Bureau parking lot, 421 W. Pines Rd., Oregon. This event is sponsored by the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department and the Lee County Office of Solid Waste Management. Materials collected at this event will be processed and recycled by Secure Recycling Services of
Dixon, Illinois. The recycling event will be accepting only residential electronic equipment such as answering machines, calculators, cameras, cell phones, CD Rom drives, computers, cables, cable receivers, copy machines, and credit card machines. Digital converter boxes, digital music players, CDs and DVDs, electric motors and wire, fax machines, floppy disk drives, keyboards, laptops, modems, monitors, mice (electronic), and microwave ovens will also be accepted. Other items that can be recycled are pagers, phone systems, printers, postage machines, power tools, projection TVs, projectors, rechargeable batteries (no alkaline), scanners, servers, shredders, software, and stereo equipment. The following items can also be taken: tablets, iPads,
tape drives, tape recorders, telephones, typewriters, TVs, VCR, DVD players, video/audio tapes, video cameras, video game players, and satellite receivers. Business and institutional electronics will not be accepted at this event, however they may call any of the sponsors for other recycling options. There will be a $10 fee for microwave ovens, but all other residential items listed above will be taken at no cost to the consumers. TVs with broken glass tubes will not be accepted. As of January 2012, Illinois residents and businesses are banned from disposing of computers and other electronics with their regular garbage collection service. Instead, these devices must be taken to a registered recycler. This law keeps toxins and reusable materials
out of local landfills while conserving natural resources and creating jobs in the recycling industry. Secure Recycling Services is a registered processor of electronic waste in Illinois. They refurbish or recycle the materials in a secure and environmentally responsible manner. Secure Recycling Services recently acquired independent R2 Certification (Responsible Recycling) to verify their recycling procedures. The use of the site for this event will be provided by the Richter Family Trust.

Learn how to control ash borer on May 15 University of Illinois Extension, in cooperation with the City of Oregon, will be holding an emerald ash borer (EAB) Management Workshopâ€™ on Thursday, May 15 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ogle County Extension Office on 421 W. Pines Rd., Oregon. The program is free and open to the public. The Illinois Department of Ag confirmed last week that Oregon is the latest city to fall victim to the EAB, a destructive pest responsible for killing millions of ash trees in North America. EAB also was recently found in Jo Daviess, Rock Island, and Whiteside Counties. Residents with an ash tree in the yard should be aware of the emerald ash borer, according to Candice Miller, University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator. The Extension has many resources available to homeowners and will be holding an EAB public education program next month. The emerald ash borer is a small, metallic-green beetle native to Asia. Its larvae
Emerald ash borer
burrow into the bark of ash trees, causing the trees to starve and eventually die. Since the first detection of the pest near Detroit, Mich., in 2002, it has killed more than 25 million ash trees. The beetle often is difficult to detect, especially in newlyinfested trees. Signs of infestation include thinning and yellowing leaves, D-shaped holes in the bark of the trunk or branches and basal shoots. According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, forty-one Illinois counties currently are under quarantine to prevent the artificial or â€œhuman-assistedâ€? spread of the beetle through the movement of infested wood and nursery stock. At the May 15 program, University of Illinois Extension educators will discuss the insectâ€™s biology, ash tree identification, management options for homeowners, tree
replacement suggestions, and quarantine restrictions. Mike Bowers, City of Oregon street superintendent, will also present on the cityâ€™s EAB management plans. Registration is requested by Wednesday, May 14 by calling 815-732-2191 or by registering at http://web. extension.illinois.edu/bdo/. Anyone who suspects an ash tree has been infested and has questions about EAB can contact their county Extension office. The Illinois Department of Ag also has a website devoted to EAB at: http:// www.agr.state.il.us/eab/. This website provides the most up to date EAB news and offers many informational factsheets and additional websites. The master gardeners at the local Extension office are also trained and ready to answer any questions that homeowners may have. Stay up to date on local EAB news and other horticulture related news and programs by liking our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ northwestillinoishorticulture.

Forreston-Polo swept doubleheader April 25 Lady Cardinals improve to 10-4 on the season The Forreston-Polo High School co-op softball team swept a doubleheader against Pecatonica on April 25 by scores of 7-3 and 11-1. Both games were highlighted by offensive firepower and lock down pitching. Sophomore Abby Peterson threw a complete game in the opener walking no one and striking out eight to improve her season record to 7-2. Sophomore shortstop Destiny Darmon had three singles and scored two runs while junior Hailey Ingram had two hits and tallied twice. However it was the explosive bat of senior Olivia Peterson that determined the game’s outcome. With the score knotted at 3 each in the top of the fifth inning Darmon and Jess Slater hit back to back singles and then Ingram walked to load the bases. Olivia Peterson hit a towering drive to right center field that hit the top
of the fence and bounded over for a grand slam home run. Her sister Abby then clinched the outcome of the game by striking out four in the next three innings and allowed only one hit. The second contest saw the Cardinal nine send freshman Kate Metzger out to pitch her first varsity game. Kate performed far beyond her years by yielding only three hits in the five inning victory. Destiny Darmon again slashed 3 hits to improve her season batting average to .549. Hailey Ingram had a single and a double to improve her average to .486 and sophomore Paige Peterson continued to display extra base power with two doubles after lacing a triple in the first contest. It was to the surprise of no one in attendance that Olivia Peterson slugged another towering home run over the right field fence. Destiny Darmon fires a throw to first to get a player out April 17.

Tipi disappeared Sunday night By Vinde Wells Editor Beth Henderson and her crew of tipi builders got an unpleasant surprise Monday morning when they started their annual task. The tipi set to go up at McDonaldâ€™s in Oregon had been stolen. Henderson said she distributed the tipi canvases Sunday evening at the various locations where the Native American shelters are erected each year to advertise the
Oregon Trail Days festival. â€œWe went there to take the poles this morning and it was gone,â€? she said Monday. The tipi, a rendition of Claude Monetâ€™s â€œStarry Nightâ€? done by local artists, is situated each year in the northwest corner of the McDonaldâ€™s parking lot next to the Shell station. Itâ€™s one of a couple dozen put up each spring to let the public know about the upcoming festival held the third weekend in July. Each tipi is painted in an
individual, unique design by a different artist or group of artists. After discovering the tipi was missing, Henderson checked with the staff at McDonaldâ€™s and Shell, thinking someone might have moved it inside to protect from the rain overnight. However, no one had moved the tipi or even seen what happened to it. This is the last time the colorful tipis will be placed around the community. â€œThey wonâ€™t be going
up again around town,â€? Henderson said. â€œItâ€™s been five years â€” theyâ€™re wearing out.â€? The tipis will still be displayed at the festival, which is held at Lowden State Park. Henderson said she plans to file a report with the Oregon Police Department, but mainly she just wants to tipi back. â€œJust return it, no questions asked,â€? she said. Anyone with information can call Henderson at 815732-2523.
Blood drive will be held May 15 The Oregon Park District will host a community blood drive on Thursday, May 15 at Nash recreation Center, 304 S. Fifth St., Oregon. Staff from the Rock

Oregon girls squeak out a 1 point win Saturday By Andy Colbert Reporter As athletic director Mike Lawton presented the firstplace trophy to Oregon for winning its own track invitational, he turned to Carly Stephens and Kelci Foss and said, â€œIf it wasnâ€™t for the one point each of you scored for finishing sixth, Oregon doesnâ€™t win the meet.â€? The Lady Hawks needed every point they could muster, as it came down the final events of the day, the 1,600-meter relay with Byron sitting at 93 points, Oregon 92 and Chicago DeLaSalle 89. Seeded No. 8 going into that event, a throw-together team of MacKenzie Skoumal, Whitney Long, Kelsey
Alcohol, teens, peer pressure By Andy Colbert Reporter As I was entering the Blackhawk Center for a workout last week, I noticed an open public forum was about to commence on underage drinking. Hmm, should I check it or not? Certainly, underage drinking is occasionally mentioned in athletic suspensions and the like. Thus, I might as well educate myself a bit more on this subject as to be a more rounded high school sports reporter. I listened as various
Pudlas and Bry Horn each knocked several seconds off their personal bests and the Lady Hawks managed a 4:23 clocking, good for second place. DeLaSalle won the race at 4:13 but ended up losing the meet to Oregon 100-99. Byron, which took fourth in the 1,600 relay, was third with 97 points in the 15-team event. â€œIâ€™m so proud of all the girls, including Carly and Kelci for getting those two extra points we needed for the win,â€? Oregon Lynn Ahlgrim said. â€œIn the 1,600 relay, we had a pole vaulter (Pudlas), someone new to track (Horn) and a short-distance person (Long). MacKenzie Skoumal was the only regular.â€? While every single point counted, the biggest
contributors to the overall total were hurdler Cydney Long and thrower Shannon Cullen. Both won two events each and Long added a second in the long jump, giving the team half of its 100 points. In the 110 low hurdles, Long ran 16.03, to win by over a second. Running the 300 hurdles this year for the first time in her career, the senior standout had a time of 51.08 for another win. â€œFor her first year at the 300s, sheâ€™s been running great,â€? Ahlgrim said. Normally, a shot putter, Cullen is also branching out and spending more time on the discus. Her effort of 113feet-7 bested Carly Fischer of Genoa-Kingston by four feet. In the shot put, her best throw of 35-3 tied Allison Klosinski of Winnebago, but
Cullen took first on a better second throw. Again, that was the difference between winning and losing the meet to DeLaSalle. â€œShannonâ€™s already comfortable in the shot and coach Engle really has her going in the discus,â€? Ahlgrim said. Two other double winners were quite noteworthy. Byronâ€™s Kelsey Hildreth broke meet records in both the 1,600 (5:11) and 3,200 (10:37), winning the latter by over a minute and a half. Jaimie Robinson of DeLaSalle, the granddaughter of former NBA player, Glenn â€œBig Dogâ€? Robinson won the triple jump in a meet-record leap of 37-11 and went 17-4 in the long jump for first. â€œThis was a great track meet,â€? Lawton said.
DeLaSalle was a firsttime entrant and Ahlgrim mentioned she hadnâ€™t heard of them before. â€œItâ€™s always great to beat Byron, though,â€? she added. â€œBut, you never know what to expect out of them until the sectional. Weâ€™ve learned that from past history.â€? Byron has won the last nine sectionals and will be favored again. Other Oregon place winners were the 400 relay of Erica Grace, Sarah Harris, Whitney Long and Pudlas, which took third. Grace, Horn, Skoumal and Cydney Long added another third in the 800 relay. Skoumal was fourth the in the 400. In the field events, Karissa Corbin backed up Cullenâ€™s first with a fifth place in the shot put at 31-11. Whitney
Long jumped 5-0 to place second in the high jump. Sarah Lauer also picked up big points by going 34-6 for second place in the triple jump and 14-5 for fifth in the long jump. Pudlas cleared 7-6 in the pole vault for third. Kelsey Handschuh tied with three other girls for the fourth-best effort at 6-6 in the vault, but finished seventh on more misses. The non-placer that Ahlgrim was most proud of was the 3,200 relay of Foss, Handschuh, Allyse Ketter and Haylie Rorbeck. That group took ninth with a time of 11:50. â€œThey shaved 10-plus seconds off their PRs and if they keep that up, theyâ€™ll qualify for state,â€? Ahlgrim said.
Sports Column speakers from social service agencies offered insight on the matter. Parents and other audience members also shared thoughts. And, there were representatives of law-enforcement present. It was informative and I applaud the people that made the effort to put together a â€œtown hallâ€? meeting like this. Underage drinking is often ignored, as parents may secretly hope their son or daughter stay away from it or at least not get caught doing it. The penalties from underage drinking are much more severe today than when I was a teenager, both from law enforcement and school athletic departments. Society is not as lax on the

matter as it was decades ago. In recent years, controversy has surrounded school districts that have created and enforced policies on underage drinking, possession of alcohol and even being in the presence of alcohol in regard to athletic eligibility. Instead of attempting to interpret the ramifications of that, Iâ€™ll share on something that really wasnâ€™t mentioned much at the public forum. Thatâ€™s alcohol itself. Students could receive all sorts of warnings â€” whether it is in the form of a staged car crash (commonly brought out at prom season), an educational video on the health dangers of alcohol consumption, the threat of being kicked off a team or maybe losing a scholarship opportunity, being disciplined at home, caught by the law, etc. Common sense would
dictate that underage drinking is a no-win situation. However, what if the consumption of alcohol does something for a young person that enables them to deal with the pressures of being a teenager? The taking of a few drinks can alleviate a feeling of low self-esteem and inability to fit in. Peer pressure, which indeed was mentioned during the forum, is not as pronounced while under the influence of alcohol. The fear of social situations gives way to a sense of ease and comfort provided by alcohol. The simple act of walking into a room full of people can make some teenagers feel like they are being both stared at and also ignored. Put some alcohol into them and that social awkwardness begins to melts away. In an intellectual sense,
a teenager realizes that underage drinking is wrong, but the power of alcohol often takes precedence over that. Alcohol becomes the magic elixir that enables a young person to deal with the pressures (whether real or perceived) of being a teenager. Thus, oneâ€™s emotional state can be the deciding consideration in whether or not to engage in underage drinking; and it does not matter the socioeconomic level, education or athletic ability of a person. If there is emptiness inside that needs to be filled or social anxiety that need to be alleviated, a teenager knows what to do to change the way he or she feels. And it may not be to seek out a teacher, counselor, coach, parent or a friend for help. Instead, it may be sought out in underage drinking, no matter what the risks or consequences.
Andy Colbert Thatâ€™s the power of alcohol. Or to paraphrase the famous American philosopher Homer Simpson, â€œIt can be the cause of, and solution to, all of lifeâ€™s problemsâ€?. Thereâ€™s really some truth to that simple statement, especially the part about alcohol being â€œthe solutionâ€? to getting through life.

Stroke is the fourth leading CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE 5NITED States and the leading cause of disability. A stroke occurs when a clot blocks the blood supply to the brain or when the blood vessel in the brain bursts, which can result in permanent damage to the brain. When brain cells die, abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost. Affected abilities can include memory, motor control, and
speech. Over two-thirds of stroke survivors will live with some type of disability as a result of the stroke. Strokes are a preventable DISEASE 5P TO FOUR FIFTHS of strokes can be prevented before they ever happen. Some risk factors cannot be controlled, like heredity, age or gender, but steps can be taken to reduce the risk. Some medical conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity can increase stroke risk. Avoid smoking and drink
alcohol in moderation. Eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly can also reduce the risk of suffering a stroke. Stroke is a treatable disease. If someone thinks a stroke is occurring, act F.A.S.T: common warning signs that affect the Face, Arms, or Speech, and take note of the Time symptoms began.

Facade grants will help Byron-area businesses Byron Community Revitalization, (BCR) Inc., is again offering facade restoration and improvement grants to Byron-area businesses. For six years, BCRâ€™s Facade Improvement Grant Program has provided grants of up to $1,000 for building owners seeking to improve the exterior of their buildings. â€œThe BCR Board is very pleased with the level of participation in the program,â€? BCR Executive Director Betsy Floski said. â€œSince businesses throughout the Byron area contribute to BCRâ€™s annual fundraisers, the board feels this is a great way to give back to the business community.â€? The goal of the program is to aid in improving the â€œcurb appealâ€? of businesses and, in the downtown area, to support the mission of uniformity as much as possible. Numerous businesses
have taken advantage of the Facade Improvement Grant Program. Projects that have included window replacement, awning repair or replacement, and facade renovation that included painting and repairs. More ambitious projects, those involving major structural improvements, could be completed with the help of other financing options. â€œWhether a business is considering routine outer maintenance or a major facade overhaul, we would strongly encourage them to take the time to apply for a grant,â€? Floski said. â€œIn some cases, a BCR grant could cover the entire cost of a project.â€? Regardless of the scope of a proposed project, BCR Board members want to make the grant program as accessible as possible for applicants, therefore, professional
architectural drawings are not necessary. A simple letter or e-mail outlining the project and showing the estimated cost is all that is necessary to get started. Grants will be guaranteed in writing upon project approval and paid out upon project completion. Submission of receipts and invoices for paid labor and materials will be required. Byron Community Revitalization is a community-based notfor-profit organization established in 1999 to help the Byron area develop its full potential as a place to live, raise children and conduct business.

Mayfield announces resignation from Shaw Media Trevis Mayfield, publisher of Sauk Valley Media and vice president of Shaw Media, has resigned effective May 2, the company announced last week. Mayfield, 48, came to Sauk Valley in 2005 as publisher and became a corporate vice president in 2007. He has been responsible for multiple media operations for Shaw in Illinois and Iowa. In making the announcement, Shaw Media
President John Rung noted that business units under Mayfield’s supervision had performed well “during a turbulent time in the media industry.” “Trevis and his teams accomplished a great deal during his tenure, which spanned nearly a decade,” Rung said. “Trevis is a tremendous leader, and we will miss him. I have no doubt that he will enjoy continued success in his
future ventures.” Mayfield said he has wanted for years to start his own company, which “may well be in the media.” “The experience at Shaw Media has put me in a position to be excited about what is next,” he said. “This is the next natural step for me.” Mayfield was the editor and then publisher of the Star-Tribune in Terre Haute, Ind., before coming to Shaw
Media. The native Hoosier is originally from Sullivan, where his parents still farm, just south of Terre Haute. He has two sons. He said he wanted to take some time off to spend with family before jumping into his next venture. He and his wife, Nancy, live in Dixon. “It’s been a really good 10 years here,” Mayfield said. “Shaw Media provided me with a lot of opportunities to work with a lot of good
people. “With good teamwork, we managed through some really tough times. I’m proud of how we handled all that, and I’m proud of the things we’ve accomplished.” No announcement was made about a successor to Mayfield. Mayfield is also the publisher for The Forreston Journal, Mt. Morris Times, Oregon Republican Reporter, and Tri-County-Press.
Drinking and high school proms do not mix April is the beginning of prom season. This is a time when celebrations can turn dangerous for high school students. DUIs, speeding, not wearing a seat belt, and distracted driving make up the “Fatal Four.” The Illinois State Police will be out in force during the months of April and May conducting details aimed at curtailing underage drinking
and enforcing speeding, seat belt, and distracted driving violations. Statistics show that prom season, April and May, is the most dangerous time for teens. The Illinois State Police suggests that students take time to think about potential consequences involving driving and alcohol use. Commander Todd Rohlwing says one-third of
“Drinking and driving can be a deadly combination,” — Todd Rohlwing Illinois State Police the alcohol related traffic fatalities involving teens each year occur during those months. “Your choice to drink at prom can ruin your entire
night. Not only will you embarrass yourself, your date, and your family, but you can damage your reputation. “You risk being suspended
from school and getting arrested, both of which can affect your college aspirations or future employment. Worse yet, drinking and driving can be a deadly combination,” Rohlwing said. The Illinois State Police would also like to remind high school students of the following laws: It is mandatory for everyone in a vehicle to
wear a seat belt. Texting while driving is prohibited. All cell phone use, even hands-free, while driving is prohibited for drivers under the age of 19, except in the case of an emergency. To ensure a safe night, the Illinois State Police stresses that prom- bound students use their seat belts, pay attention behind the wheel, and never drink and drive.
