District to hire new leader By Vinde Wells Editor The Forrestville Valley School Board expected to make it official Wednesday and hire Sheri Smith, Freeport, as the districtâ€™s superintendent for the 201415 school year. Following a closed session at a special meeting May 14, board president Robert Ebbesmeyer said the board was ready to hire Smith at its May 21 meeting. â€œWeâ€™re excited to offer her a contract,â€? he said. â€œSheâ€™s got a lot of enthusiasm and skills to bring to the district.â€?

A Polo tow truck owner publicly apologized to Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn Tuesday at the county board meeting for comments made at last monthâ€™s meeting. Greg Wagner was one of three tow truck owners who attended the county board meeting April 15 to voice their concern about being taken off the sheriffâ€™s tow rotation list. Wagner said that since that meeting he has been called by the sheriffâ€™s department
for tow service after traffic accidents. He said he spoke to Harn, who told him he had no knowledge of Wagner purposely not being called. â€œI want to apologize to the sheriff and the Ogle County Sheriffâ€™s Department,â€? Wagner said. Harn did not attend either county board meeting. At the April meeting, tow truck owner Doug Aken, Oregon, spoke for himself, Wagner, and Stan Ubben, Mt. Morris. Aken told the board all three

East Cherry Street. Village President Michael Harn said insurance company officials recently purchased the empty restaurant property with plans to eventually expand their present building, which is next door to the north.

Harn said a car driven by James Morgan, 89, Rockton, was northbound on Freeport Road, stopped at the stop sign, and then pulled out in front of the westbound semi, driven by Robert Pottenbaum, 70, Manchester, Iowa. Traffic at the intersection is controlled by stop signs on Freeport Road. Vehicles on U.S. 52 are not required to stop. The semi, which was loaded with sand, came to rest on its side an estimated 150 to 200 feet west of the intersection, partially in a
field. The crash occurred around 1:30 p.m. Morgan and his wife Deloras Morgan, 84, Rockton, a front seat passenger in his car, and Pottenbaum were taken to the hospital by Polo and Mt. Morris ambulances. All were wearing seat belts, and the carâ€™s air bags deployed. The Polo Police Department and Polo Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Then on March 20, Aken said he received a letter from Harn informing him he was no longer on the list. The letter gave no reason. However, Aken said he believes it was because he supported another candidate in the March 18 Republican primary.

Lions sponsoring a two-day trip The Leaf River Lions are sponsoring a two-day bus trip to Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester Hills, Mich. on July 31 and Aug. 1. Leader Dogs for the Blind originated in 1938 by three Lion members because one of their friends was denied a leader dog when they applied for one on the East Coast. It was then they decided to begin a Leader Dog program. Since then the program has grown tremendously as they have served 14,500 blind individuals around the world with a leader dog. Even in the last few years they have begun training leader dogs for deaf and blind individuals.
Leader Dog for the Blind has volunteer host families caring for breeding stock moms and dads in nearby locations within a short driving distance of Rochester Hills, Mich. They have volunteer puppy raisers in many states in the United States. Puppy raisers pick up their puppies when they are about six weeks old and socialize them for 12 to 15 months before taking them back to Leader Dog for their training. It is always a sad moment when they have to part with their puppies but they all know it is for a worthy cause. They soon pick up another puppy and start all over.
The puppies then go through a lengthy training before being paired with their vision-impaired individuals. The blind or deaf individual is brought to Leader Dog in Rochester and goes through 26 days of training with his or her dog before going back home. Leader Dogs then serve for eight to nine years before being retired. All of this is done at no cost to the individual receiving the leader dog. This is because of what Lions have done over the past 75 years. The Leader Dog program has grown so much that they have had to secure even more funding to assist them.
An eye exam is a good idea, especially if things are starting to look a little fuzzy around the edges.

German Valley Days festival on Saturday, June 7. Originally from the Netherlands, van Est first saw balloons up close while on a family visit to England in 1987. Chasing balloons to their landing spot and assisting the crew got him interested in the sport. He resided at Lake Summerset for 15 years, taking the name Summerset Ballooning. He has flown in the Freeport and Rockford areas since 1995 and says he became known by many in the area as â€œthe balloon guyâ€?. He likes the fact that balloons are relatively low tech. He said that an altimeter to indicate altitude, rate of climb/descent, and temperature in the balloon is the only instrument needed. â€œThe beauty of hot air ballooning is the views from the basket, the colorfulness of the balloon and the skill
â€œI hope to keep flying for many more years to come.â€? He will present more information about ballooning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 7 at 525 Church Street, across from the fire station. Weather permitting, he will offer tethered rides at a cost of $8. In case of inclement weather, the alternate location for his presentation will be on the park stage. A free giveaway for a twoperson hot air balloon ride is being offered in conjunction van Estâ€™s appearance at German Valley Days. Anyone 16 years of age and older may register at the Information Booth in the Ben Miller Park from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, June 6 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 7. The ride will be awarded at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday. The ride will be given at the convenience of the winner and van Est.

County Board approves pay raises for four officials By Vinde Wells Editor Four elected officials in Ogle County will see hefty increases in their paychecks over the next four years. The county board approved raises Tuesday for the clerk, treasurer, circuit clerk, and sheriff by a 20-3 margin. Casting the no votes were board members Skip Kenney, Rochelle, Pat Suanders, Polo, and Pat Nordman, Oregon. Bruce McKinney, Rochelle, did not attend the meeting. The salaries for the clerk, treasurer, and circuit clerk will increase from the current $68,500 per year to $75,000 in 2015, then to $76,500 in 2016, $78,412 for 2017, and $80,765 for 2018. The sheriffâ€™s pay will increase from the present $81,500 to $82,500 next year, $84,150 in 2016, $86,254 in 2017, and $86,842 in 2018. Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said the raises should be looked at as adjustments to make up for recent years when those officials received no raises. â€œYou will notice that in the base salary [$75,000] there is a significant adjustment,â€? he said. â€œThat is because in the previous

four years they got increases of only $1,000 for one year. The other three years were frozen.â€? Saunders voiced concern about how the county will pay for the raises. â€œMy question is where will the money come from?â€? she said. â€œMost of our budget is for salariesâ€ŚIf we have to make cuts to do this, are you willing to lay people off?â€? Saunders said the countyâ€™s tax base is â€œstagnant,â€? no agreement has been reached with Exelon for the assessed value of the Byron Generating
Station, and the county is currently in union contract negotiations with sheriffâ€™s department employees. She said the proposed increase is 17 percent over the four years. â€œI agree with raises,â€? she said and proposed her own wage increase plan. Under her plan, the clerk, treasurer, and circuit clerk would get an additional $1,500 each next year, $1,000 in 2016, $1,000 in 2017, and $500 in 2018. The sheriff would receive an

additional $1,000 in each of the first two years. Kenney said he supported Saundersâ€™ plan. Nordman also voiced concern over where the money will come from. Rich Gronewold, Forreston, said he had no problem with the increase to $75,000 but questioned subsequent increases.
He cited high unemployment in the area he represents and that 47 percent of the students in the Forrestville Valley School District qualify for free lunches. â€œMy constituents are hurting,â€? Gronewold said. Board member Marcia Heuer, Oregon, said she wants to be sure the countyâ€™s tax revenues will be sufficient. Saunders asked Gouker if he
had a plan to pay for the raises. Gouker said the countyâ€™s tax base has increased somewhat and sales tax and state income tax revenues have stabilized. â€œI believe out budget will be able to sustain this,â€? he said. By state statute, salaries for elected officials are set once every four years. The raises will take effect on Dec. 1.

Every 40 seconds, someone has a stroke. Give us an hour and we can help you understand why â€“ and what to do about it. Stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Almost 800,000 strokes happen every year, with one occurring every 40 seconds and taking a life every four minutes. As the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., many of us will be touched by it at some time.

Breast Yard Sale starts Saturday rain or shine Donâ€™t miss the Breast Yard Sale in Town â€“ all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. The huge annual lingerie and barn sale begins Saturday, May 24 and continues through Sunday, June 15 at 1194 W Mud Creek Road, Oregon. The sale is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. rain or shine. â€œRummage has been arriving on a daily basis,â€? said organizer Karen Virnoche-Brown. â€œCar loads of sentimental heirlooms, items from reimaging a room in a home, possessions that accumulate over the years, brand-name cloths that no longer fit, wares from downsizing a property, and bits and pieces of this and that are being delivered
to the barn. As you can see from the picture, we have a variety of things â€” even a lit palm tree. Care for a luau anyone?â€? The sale 12th year and this year Virnoche-Brown, a cancer survivor, hopes to top the $100,000 mark in total sales. â€œWhy do we continue to do this? We are grateful for every day,â€? she said. â€œWe plan to â€˜pay it forwardâ€™ through donations so that we can raise funds for the American Cancer Society. During this 12th year, we are aiming for $100,000 target. Did you know that $100,000 is an entry-level grant to an ACS-funded researcher? While we celebrate more birthdays, letâ€™s also celebrate that enough money
was raised to fund a research study.â€? No single nongovernmental, not-forprofit organization in the U.S. has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer than the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society has helped make possible almost every major cancer research breakthrough since 1946. Currently, there are 883 grants being funded through dollars donated by citizens. â€œLetâ€™s put Ogle County on the map as the county that funded a researcherâ€™s grant. Letâ€™s help save lives and celebrate more birthdays,â€? Virnoche-Brown said. For more information call her at 815-973-2050.

Boy Scout works to help clear pines for project An Oregon Boy Scout has chosen Sand Ridge, a prairie preservation project, as his Eagle Scout project. Jon Chapman, a member of Boy Scout Troop 52, and the crew he organized worked May 10 to clear downed overgrown scotch pines and hauled them to a collection site. Chapmanâ€™s fellow scouts, friends, and family all pitched in. He said he believed they could meet
his goal of removing several hundred of the 500 trees that previous Eagle Scout candidate Michael Stevens had felled with his crew earlier this spring. Chapman, working to become an Eagle Scout before he turns 18, said his troop leader Ray Gruber had suggested the project. His mother, having worked for the Byron Forest Preserve and planning to pursue a degree in conservation, was
also influential, he said. Sand Ridge, former part of the Sinnissippi Forest tree farm, is owned by the Prairie Preservation Society of Ogle County (PPSOC). â€œThe Prairie Preservation Society of Ogle County is grateful to the scouts and to Ray Gruber for the fine work they have done to help restore the ecology of Sand Ridge,â€? said Sonia Vogle, Oregon, a member of the PPSOC.

Tests are complete on foundation By Vinde Wells Editor After several weeks of waiting, Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook could breathe a sign of relief Monday afternoon. He finally found out then construction can resume on a new storage building at the highway department headquarters at 1989 S. Ill. 2. Construction on the 90 by 150 foot building has been delayed about a month, Cook said Tuesday because the concrete in the walls did not meet the strength requirements specified in the contract. In accordance with building standards, the highway department’s contract with Cord Construction, Rockford, requires that concrete must be tested for strength seven days after it’s poured and again at 28 days. Travis Cunningham receives the John Philip Sousa The concrete in the Award May 9 during the Forreston High School Spring building’s walls, however, Concert. Photo by Chris Johnson did not met the requirements
at the first test. “It’s in our contract that it needed to meet at the 75 percent level after seven days,” Cook said. “It wasn’t there.” The 28-day test done Monday, however, produced better results. “Structurally the concrete met the strength requirements of the contract,” Cook said. Had the concrete failed the 28-day tests, it would have meant tearing out the walls and probably the footings and underlying pipes. The tests determined that the concrete was mixed with too high a percentage water in it, Cook said. “The contract spelled out the ratio of water. They exceeded that,” he said. The concrete came from the Super Mix plant in Belvidere. The company also has a plant near Monroe Center. It was poured by Preferred Concrete, Freeport. Although the concrete is structurally sound, Cook said it still did not meet the
requirements of the contract. He said he has been working with officials from Cord Construction to resolve the issues. “I’m very pleased with the cooperation we got from Cord Construction. From day one they acknowledged the problem and required the sub-contractors to remedy the situation,” he said. “As difficult as the process has been, they made it much better than it could have been.” As result, the county will not have to pay for the concrete in the walls - roughly estimated at $10,000. The walls will be sealed for extra weatherproofing, at no cost to the county, and the one-year warranty on the concrete has been extended to five years. The big question is whether or not the building will be completed by the June 30 deadline set by the contract. “I think it will be delayed but we’re not sure how much yet,” Cook said.
The timing is crucial because work to reconstruct and pave the parking lot is slated to begin July 7. Cook said Cord officials will provide an updated construction schedule later this week. According to the terms of the contract, the contractor would stand liquidated damages of $1,025 per day after June 30. Once completed, the $700,000 steel building will be used to store road graders and other heavy equipment, some of which currently sits outside. The parking lot work will cost an estimated $278,000 and will be done by Martin and Company. The money to pay for the building will come from the county’s Long Range Planning Fund. Revenues in that fund come from the host fees paid by garbage collection firms to dump refuse in the landfills within the county.
Board authorizes a full tow-fund forensic examination By Vinde Wells Editor It’s official — the Ogle County Sheriff’s Tow Fund will be getting a full forensic examination. By a unanimous vote Tuesday, the county board approved engaging the forensic services of Sikich LLP, Naperville, to examine Tow Fund expenditures and revenues since it was implemented in 2011 to the present.
Sikich is the same firm that does the county’s regular annual audits. The fee for the initial investigation is $7,500 plus out-of-pocket expenses. If fraud is uncovered during the audit, the costs will increase to as much as $300 per hour for the investigators’ services. In their contract with the county, Sikich officials specified that the procedure should be called a forensic “examination,” rather than a forensic “audit.”
Sheriff Michael Harn came under fire in the last several months over expenditures from the Tow Fund, which included purchasing a new vehicle, flowers for Secretaries Day, a tent at the county fair, and $4,000 for the department’s Facebook page to be managed. Last January, board member Richard Petrizzo, Davis Junction, made a motion for a forensic examination of the Tow Fund as well as the sheriff’s credit card expenditures.
However, board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said the matter could not be voted on then because it was not on the agenda. Petrizzo’s subsequent efforts to have the matter placed on the agenda were unsuccessful. In February, the board diminished the sheriff’s control over the Tow Fund by limiting how it could be spent and requiring the approval of expenditures by the county committee that oversees the
sheriff’s budget. Gouker called for a forensic examination of the Tow Fund at the April 15 meeting. At that same meeting, the county board approved a resolution establishing the Tow Fund. Gouker said that although the board approved implementing administrative tow fees in 2011, the ordinance governing that did not actually establish the Tow Fund. The new resolution mandated that Tow Fund
deposits are limited to only administrative fees collected when a vehicle is towed, impounded, or seized during a criminal investigation. It further requires that the Tow Fee will be handled by the Ogle County Treasurer’s office, rather than the sheriff, as in the past. Treasurer John Coffman said the Tow Fund was turned over to his office April 15 when received a check for $51,932.07 from the sheriff’s department.

Polo-Forreston boys track wins NUIC conference By Andy Colbert Reporter The seedings for the Northwest Upstate Illinois boys track and field conference had PoloForreston and PecatonicaDurand in a dead heat for the team title. With P-F holding a slim 127-124 lead going into the final event of the night, those predictions proved true. Any suspense over which squad would emerge as champion was soon erased in the 1,600 relay, as Kevin Cheeseman, Max Barkalow, Brian and Brad Cavanaugh destroyed not only P-D, but every other team in the race. Their time of 3:38 was six seconds better than secondplace Lena-Winslow, giving P-F a 137-125 final margin of victory. Le-Win had won the last two NUIC titles, with P-F last winning in 2011. “This feels so good,” said first-year P-F coach Ryan Deets. “All the credit goes to the kids. They worked so hard to earn this.”
If there was such a thing as a pivotal moment in the meet, it may have been in the 800 meters, where Jesse and Ethan Ditzler placed third and fifth. “That was the swing race,” Deets said. “Neither of them was expected to place. Those are the little things you don’t see in the box score.” Right after the 800, P-F put additional pressure on P-D, who had a bad handoff between legs two and three, by beating them in the 800 relay, 1:33.46 to 1:33.73. Brad Cavanaugh, Barkalow, Nathan Stukenberg and Brooks Grobe combined to also best the state-qualifying standard of 1:33.70. After Brian Cavanaugh and Cheeseman both placed in the 400, P-F had what appeared to be a safe 112-84 lead over P-D. In the next two events, the 300 hurdles and 1,600 run, P-D scored 34 points to take a 3-point lead and give Deets a few anxious moments.

Tough competition greeted Polo athletes in Byron By Andy Colbert Reporter
ahead with three events left, but star distance runner Kelsey Hildreth got the lead back for Byron in the 1,600 and a win in the 200 by Challen Jackson over Cydney Long of Oregon sealed the title. Byron had 126.5 points to win its 11 sectional in 12 years. Oregon had 112, the closest margin between the two schools in several years.
“You never see the full Byron team until the sectional,” Oregon coach Track sectionals are Lynn Ahlgrim said. “To stay primarily about sending this close to them with such qualifiers downstate, but a small and young team was team titles are a nice plus. a great accomplishment for After finishing second to us.” Byron the last three years, Byron won all four relays Oregon was poised to be top and had double place winners girls team at the 1A sectional in over half of the events. on May 16. “It took our whole team The Lady Hawks were then,” Byron coach Scott McMullen said. “Winning that 200 for big for us. We knew it would be tight. Oregon is so good in the field events and with Cydney.” Long won her specialties, the 100 hurdles (15.48 seconds) and 300 hurdles (48.28), to make it 13 events qualified for in four years at Oregon. She also took third in the long jump (16’) and fourth in the 200 (27.61). “By the 200, Cydney’s legs were done,” Ahlgrim. “Doing six long jumps takes a toll on you.” Oregon had another double winner in Shannon Cullen, though she did put a scare into her throwing coach Doug Engle. Coming in as the No. 1 seed in the discus, Cullen scratched on her first two attempts and was one throw away of missing the finals. “On the last one, I told her she could either make a full turn, which is more risky, or try to qualify from the standing position,” Engle said.

of going out-of-bounds and advanced to the finals. There, she won with a personal best of 120’-2”. “It takes guts to make a full turn throw with the nerves and frustration she was had,” Engle said. “In the discus, she is just starting to see how good she can be.” In her specialty, the shot put, the returning state medalist hit the 39-foot mark to win by nearly five feet. Earlier in the week, she went over 40 feet for the first time. Oregon’s Sarah Lauer added a triple jump (33’-7”) win and Kelsey Pudlas did the same in the pole vault (8’-6”) to give each both conference
and sectional titles. Whitney Long added to Oregon’s field event point total and qualified for the state meet with a second place in the high jump at 5’. Another Lady Hawk second-placer was Mackenzie Skoumal in the 400. After dropping the baton in the 400 relay, Oregon’s 800 relay of Erica Grace, Pudlas, Sarah Harris and Brianna Horn redeemed itself with a 1:54.64 clocking, edging West Carroll for the secondplace qualification. The 1,600 relay of Skoumal, Whitney Long, Pudlas and Horn were the beneficiaries of a disqualification of
Harvest Christian to move up from third place to second and also make state. Other meet placers for Oregon were Harris, fifth in the 100, Adena Burger, fifth in the pole vault and a third by Karisa Corbin in the shot put. Corbin’s final throw was a personal record of 34’-1” and only two inches from the 34’-3” by state qualifier Lauren Twardoski of Byron. “You couldn’t ask for more,” Engle said. “That’s not bad for a bowler in her first year of track.” Besides Cullen and Long for Oregon, the meet’s other double winner was Hildreth Turn to B2
Oregon girls are ready to head to state finals By Andy Colbert Reporter As has been the case all year, it will be Shannon Cullen and Cydney Long leading the Oregon girls track team at the IHSA 1A meet. The pair had third-place finishes last year at the state meet. The preliminary round is Thursday on the campus of Eastern Illinois University, with the finals on Saturday. In the shot put, Cullen was the top returning placer from 2013, but a couple of youngsters have stepped into the limelight. Based on sectional results, Cullen’s mark of 39-feet sits third behind freshman Kathleen
Young of Warrensburg (42’2”) and sophomore Rachel Clowers of Pleasant Hill (39’-4”). Cullen has also advanced in the discus for the first time in her throwing career and has the No. 5 seed with a personal best of 120’-2”. Young and Clowers are 1-2, with throws of 130’-5” and 129’-8”. The third, fourth and sixth seeds are also sophomores, leaving Cullen as the veteran of the bunch. Having competed the last two years at Charleston will be an advantage to her, as she hopes to become the first throwing state champ in either the boys or girls programs at Oregon.
Long brings the third-best time (15.48 seconds) in the 110 hurdles. That race looks to be wide open between No. 1 seed Erin Johnson of Trenton (15.28), last year’s second-place finisher, Jenny Kimbro of Sidell (15.36) and last year’s champ, Peyton Wade of Aurora Christian (15.64). Long is also entered in the 300 hurdles and is No. 15 seed, two and half seconds behind Kimbro. Oregon is also sending another veteran in junior Sarah Lauer. A 3-time sectional champ in the triple jump, Lauer is looking to advance to Saturday’s finals for the first time. Turn to B2

Byron runner ended up being story of the meet
Polo-Forrestonâ€™s best finish was a tie for third by of Byron in the 1,600 and Courtney Wolf in the high 3,200 runs. jump. Wolf only had a seed In the 3,200, she lapped of 4â€™-6â€?, but went 4â€™-10â€? for every competitor at least once a huge personal record. and finished with a time of â€œThatâ€™s pretty impressive,â€? Jenkins said. Naeva Groenewold took fourth place in the triple jump at 31â€™-2â€? and Serenity Stapleton fourth in the high jump at 4â€™-6â€?. Jenkins was also pleased to have three of his relays place sixth. â€œNaeva was our best seed coming in,â€? Jenkins said. â€œWhatever we placed in was good, since our seeds werenâ€™t that high. We did about as well as expected.â€? Running the 400 relay (56.82) was Jessica Anderson, Josie Pasch, Serenity Stapleton and Wolf. The 1,600 relay (4:40) consisted of Hope Stapleton, Serenity Stapleton, Kaille Fiorello and Pasch and the 3,200 relay (11:30) had Bridget Barry, Hope Polo-Forrestonâ€™s Kenzie Heinz competes in the shot put Stapleton, Peyton Taylor and during the Byron Sectional on May 16.

10:32, good for top 40 in the nation according to dyetstat. com. That time also beat half of the 3,200 relay entrants. â€œSheâ€™s the story of the meet,â€? Polo/Forreston coach Terry Jenkins said.
Deets said. Cavanaugh also had a season best in the triple jump with a leap of 42-2 to win that event. â€œHe right where he needs to be to get downstate,â€? Deets said. His brother Brad got second in the high jump to give P-F 18 valuable points. The other field event first place was AJ Dollmeyer in the discus. In windy conditions, which have been problematic for him, Dollmeyer managed a 126-2 effort. â€œAJâ€™s been in a discus slump and this was a good win for him. The windâ€™s not his thing,â€? Deets said. A decision made by the Polo track staff a couple years ago proved to be a deciding factor in the meet. Instead of automatically giving up 18 points in the pole vault to P-D every year, Polo became
the second school in the conference to offer that event. Ethan Cain went a personal best of 10-0 to take second and Jesse Ditzler added a third, giving their team 14 points. Considering P-F won the meet by 12 points, they would have lost had not they had pole vaulters. â€œWe knew we get places, but Ethanâ€™s 10 feet was unexpected,â€? Deets said. â€œThe core strength from wrestling has transitioned well to vaulting.â€? Other individual placers were Miguel Dominguez (5th in the 3,200), Brad Cavanaugh (4th triple jump), Dollmeyer (5th shot put), Ethan Ditzler (5th 1,600) and Reining (6th 300 hurdles).
â€œI was hoping we would have wrapped this up after the hurdles,â€? said Deets, nervously tapping away at his clipboard. â€œThis is a different feeling as the head coach.â€? When Stukenberg and Grobe went 2-4 in the 200 and put P-F back in the lead before the 1,600 relay, Deets could breathe a little easier. â€œWeâ€™re so deep at the 200. If there was a 6 X 200 relay instead of 4 X 200, I think we could maybe win state,â€? Deets said. â€œThatâ€™s what we base our training regimen around.â€? In the 100, Grobe and Barkalow were neck-andneck (11.62-11.68) to place third and fourth. Tristian Fox of Le-Win won the 100 P-F will contend with (11.49), 200 (22.83) and 400 Byron, Oregon, and North (51.27) dashes and would Boone for the 1A sectional have probably won the 800 if title at Oregon on Friday. he entered it, as he is several seconds better than any other runner in the conference. He did anchor Le-Win to an 8:43-8:46 win over P-F in the 3,200 relay. The Ditzlers, Stukenberg and Kaleb Reining ran on the relay for P-F. The P-F also finished second in the 400 relay, this time to P-D, 44.60-45.25. The field events were equally fruitful, as Brian Cavanaugh came up big. He cleared 6-2 to win the high jump and barely miss tying the meet record of 6-3. â€œHe had two great attempts at it. His hips were over, but Nathan Stukenberg runs in the 200 meter dash Monday he caught it with his knees,â€? night. Photo by Chris Johnson
Girls to compete at state From B1 A jump of at least 33 feet will likely be needed and Lauer has done that many times. The other field event entries are Kelsey Pudlas in the pole vault and Whitney Long in the high jump. Also competing will be Mackenize Skoumal in the
400 run and the 800 relay of Erica Grace, Sarah Harris, Brianna Horn and Pudlas. In the 1,600 relay, it will be Pudlas, Skoumal, Whitney Long and Horn. One of the most anticipated events of the meet is the 3,200 run where senior Kelsey Hildreth of Byron will face star freshman Anna
Sophie Keller of Effingham St. Anthony. Hildreth comes in with a time of 10 minutes 32 seconds compared to 10:37 by Keller. The last time the two raced against each other was at the 1A state cross-country meet where Keller won 16:35 to 17:20 for second-place Hildreth.
Or, what about all the area coaches I have became close friends with. Could I call them to task on any sort of questionable activity? And, where is the line between what I should be doing as a reporter versus what is the responsibility of the school board? Maybe something is none of my business. While I admire what Giuliani did during his tenure at SVM, I donâ€™t know if it is in my blood to do the same because of the interpersonal relationships with not only coaches and athletic directors at various schools, but the parents and the athletes. However, if there is something in the interest of the general public that needs to be told, what about my responsibility to the readers of the newspaper? If I am to abide by all things spiritual, as this column has constantly espoused on, perhaps I should look at my motives first.
Am I writing about a sensitive or controversial subject for my own personal prestige and is undue harm being done to others because of my rush getting that â€œscoopâ€?? Conversely, I am not writing about something I should be writing because of fear of what others would think of me? As always, I pray that the Spirit would guide me to a decision.
Sports Column Citizenry needs investigative reporting By Andy Colbert Reporter In last weekâ€™s Dixon Telegraph, David Giuliani announced he would be leaving us to take a newspaper position with in the suburbs. In his three years with Sauk Valley Media (our parent company), Giuliani did exemplary work in exposing and uncovering shortcomings in public government in Whiteside, Lee and Ogle counties. Whether it was the city council, county board, township meetings, park districts, fire departments, sheriffâ€™s office, etc., Giuliani demonstrated why newspapers are so vital to the citizenry. Had he not investigated and put into print all of the questionable
practices and abuses by elected officials and governmental employees, the general public would likely have no knowledge of their existence. The fact that Giuliani was the one usually pointing out these shortcomings demonstrates the lack of responsiveness and just plain ignorance by governmental bodies. Thatâ€™s something newspapers have been doing for centuries and will continue to do, as long as they remain financially viable. Without newspapers as watchdogs over the public trust, I shudder to think of who would be an advocate for how tax dollars are being spent. In my 18 years of working part-time for either Sauk Valley Media or the Register Star, Iâ€™ve never done any sort of investigative reporting, such as Giuliani tackles. After reading his material, it has inspired me to be somewhat more attentive.
Are there similar abuses or questionable practices by school administrators or coaches or that needs to brought to light? Many of us on the high school sports beat are reluctant to tackle serious issues because of personality conflicts. We become too closely intertwined with the players, coaches and athletic directors and it affects our impartiality. For example, a few years ago I planned to re-visit a basketball teamâ€™s revolt against its coach and the hoopla surrounding it. It happened at Rock Falls and was front-page news in the mid 1970s. I thought it would make for interesting reading material, especially after getting perspective decades later from the parties involved. To that end, I contacted athletic director Rich Montgomery for further information and perhaps some leads. He was none too happy that I wanted to pursue this
subject and felt it would do a disservice to Rock Falls by hashing up such a controversial subject. I had a friendly relationship with Rich and because of that, I did not want to do anything to offend him. So, I dropped that idea. Thatâ€™s just one of many instances over the years that I did not pursue sensitive subjects. Sports editors and reporters are dependent on athletic directors and coaches for much of what we do. Likewise, it is important for them to have good repoire with the media, a sort of symbiotic relationship. Here at Oregon, I have had the extreme pleasure of working with Vern Welp, Kip Crandall and Mike Lawton, each an outstanding athletic director. With the respect I have towards each of these men, would I be willing to that watchdog over how they run (or ran) their departments?

Music about Rock River Valley will be performed To kick off the Byron Forest Preserve Districtâ€™s annual free Summer Concert series, a special showing of â€œOld River Talesâ€? will be held inside the Jarrett Prairie Center on Sunday, June 1 at 7 p.m. â€œOld River Talesâ€? is an original musical play about life around Rockford and the Rock River Valley from the frontier beginnings in
the 1830s up until 1900 as it was settled by many different ethnic groups. The play includes famous characters such as Abraham Lincoln, the warrior Black Hawk, Albert Spalding, and Jane Addams. Also included are lesser known, yet fascinating, local historical figures such as Jennie Hodgers, a young woman who fought as a Civil
War soldier by pretending to be a man, and Jacob Schweinfurth, an infamous religious cult leader. The play is packed with dates and facts, yet is full of humor to deliver the information in an interesting and entertaining format. Additional characters, the Irish, the Swedes and emancipated African American slaves represent
the many diverse populations who, while risking everything, fled to the Rockford area for a better life. The three-person cast includes Carolyn Cadigan, David Causey, and Andrew Harth with narration by Sue Crandall and Jenniel Wright. The performance also contains music, with Betsy Kaske playing a variety of instruments. The result is a
celebration of the Rockford areaâ€™s rich and diverse history. The play runs for two hours with one intermission. Between and during dramatic scenes, the performers will sing 15 well-known 19th century songs such as â€œDown by the Riverside,â€? â€œRock of Ages,â€? and â€œSwing Low Sweet Chariot.â€? The audience will always
be encouraged to sing along with the performers. â€œOld River Talesâ€? was written and directed by Rockfordâ€™s Sue Crandall and Rufus Cadigan and has been performed at Midway Village Museum, Rockford University and other Rockford area locations. The program is sponsored by Byron Bank and admission is free.

Harriet M. Fletcher Harriet Mae (Kielsmeier) Fletcher, 84, Mt. Morris, died on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at Pinecrest Community following a battle with cancer. Harriet was born May 19, 1929 in Mt.

He was a Melvin Jones Fellow of the Oregon Lions Club where he started the annual Rock River Canoe Rally. He was a leader in his church, a Cub Scout Pack Master for eight years, a board member for Ogle County Habitat for Humanity and Ogle County Hospice, and a joint founder of the Fields Project and the Community Arts Legacy.

himself how to do it. One interest led to another, then another, then another, from restoring a Model A Ford, to restoring a wooden canoe, to building a splitlevel log cabin, to learning to play the tuba in his 80s. He was a natural teacher who taught his children and grandchildren his values and his skills. He wanted to learn, then do and understand, and finally, share.
