War is sacrifice and not glorious By Chris Johnson Reporter Memorial Day used to be just another weekend for one man before he joined the military. “When I was young Memorial Day was an abstract idea,� said Blake Musser, Freeport, during the Forreston Memorial Day Service. “We were in a time of peace and the weekend was more about the beginning of summer.� Memorial Day was a day to watch exciting war movies, he said. “War for me was distant and glorious,� he said. “It is really about pain and sacrifice. War was romanticized. For me war stories were exciting.� This changed after his tours of duty in Ramadi, Iraq ten years ago. Private first class Geoffery Morris, Gurnee, died from injuries received from hostile fire in Al Anbar Province, Iraq in April 2004. Marine Lance Corporal Jonathan Collins, Crystal

Lake, was killed in August 2004 in Al Anbar Province. Marine Sergeant Kenneth Conde Jr., was killed in action in Al Anbar Province in July 2004. They were members of the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment. “I am here to remember them,� said Musser. “The most important piece to remember is these people are real people. They are brothers, husbands, and wives.� Conde was a man who gave everything to his unit and paid the ultimate sacrifice with his life. “He was one of my brothers and I would tease him,� said Musser. “He went on 200 combat missions. After being shot he refused to be medically evacuated.� Instead, Conde continued to lead his unit until he could no longer raise his arm, said Musser. “He requested to stay in Iraq instead of being Turn to A3

Sheriff hired as school’s maintenance supervisor By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media Starting on June 2, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn will be working two jobs. Harn’s term as sheriff ends in November. But for the next 6 months, he’ll also have a full-time responsibility to the Forrestville Valley School District. The school board unanimously hired him May 21 as the district’s maintenance coordinator. Harn is also the village president of Forreston. His current term expires in 2017. The job at the school

district pays $17 an hour, and Harn will be expected to work 40 hours a week, said district Interim Superintendent Jane Eichman. Harn will be in charge of buildings and grounds maintenance for the district, which includes two elementary school buildings and a combined junior and senior high school, Eichman said, adding that he’ll also be supervisor of the district’s custodians. Harn was elected Ogle County sheriff in 2010. He lost a close primary election to Rochelle police officer Brian VanVickle in March.

Harn’s salary as sheriff is $87,000. If he works 40 hours a week for the school district from June 2 through November, he will make about $61,000 between the two jobs. Harn didn’t respond to requests for comment. In April, Sauk Valley Media reported that in the month after the election, Harn had been present at the department only three times, according to a longtime member of the department who spoke on the condition of anonymity, compared to “three or four� times a week in his first three years as

sheriff. Harn had been calling in to the department and was available through email, the source said in April. During the interview process for the maintenance coordinator position, Eichman said Harn was asked about how he would be able to balance his time between June and the end of his term. Eichman said Harn assured the district it wouldn’t be a problem. Harn lives in Forreston, where two of the district’s schools are located. The other school is in German Valley, in Stephenson County.

On May 20, the Ogle County Board approved a “forensic examination� of the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department’s tow fund. In December, Sauk Valley Media reported that the tow fund, which isn’t in he county budget, had been used to pay for vehicle repairs and purchases, in addition to flowers for Secretary’s Day, a tent at the Ogle County Fair, and a $4,000 fee for the department’s Facebook page to be managed, among other expenses. Sheriff Michael Harn In February, the Ogle County Board restricted the sources and transferred it to tow fund’s uses and revenue the treasurer.

Smith is hired as the new Forrestville superintendent By Vinde Wells Editor The Forrestville Valley School District has a new superintendent. The school board unanimously hired Sheri Smith, Freeport, on May 21, and she assumed her new duties Tuesday. According to a press release issued by the school board last week, Smith will work with Interim Superintendent Jane Eichman during a transition period of several weeks. Board president Bob Ebbesmeyer said he is pleased with the board’s choice. “Sheri Smith brings a new era for our district,� he said. “She has enthusiastically accepted the challenge of working with our board, our teachers and staff, and

Sheri Smith

our community to continue the tradition of success at Forrestville Valley. She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and communication skills that will be an instant benefit to out district.� Smith said she is looking forward to her new position.

In This Week’s Edition...

“I look forward to applying my skills to Forrestville Valley, where I can benefit the students and families within my home community,� she said. “I am confident my knowledge of the staff, students, and parents will give me a jump start on the work that needs to be done in the district, and I am excited to get started.� Smith and her husband Brent live outside German Valley, and their two children, Brycelynn, 12, and Brock, 9, attend Forrestville Valley Schools. A resident of the school district for the past 15 years, Smith has served as the assistant superintendent of the Belvidere School District for the past five years.

Tractor Pull is set for Saturday

The Rockford Phantom Regiment performs in last year’s Leaf River Summer Daze parade. The drum and bugle corps will be featured in this year’s parade on Sunday, June 1. Photo supplied

Phantom Regiment will perform The Rockford Phantom Regiment will perform again this year during the annual parade at the Leaf River Summer Daze parade on Sunday, June 1 at 2 p.m. The Phantom Regiment is a youth organization dedicated to the development of selfesteem and self-reliance. It encourages team work, sportsmanship, civic pride and contributions of one’s personal best to a group effort. These lessons are learned through a musical and marching activity in which

there is a blending of the arts and athletics. Their mission statement is: “To organize, maintain, and operate a musical marching unit, band, color guard, and related activities, and in general, promote and encourage drum and bugle corps activities, parades, concerts, contests, and to further the musical talents and interests of young persons.� Drum and Bugle Corps is an original American art form. The beginning can be traced

to veterans organizations such as the VFW and the American Legion, as well as organizations such as the Catholic Youth Organization. Soldiers returning from World War I celebrated Veterans Day and the Fourth of July by marching parades to the drum and the bugle, just as they had done during the war. The first two corps in the area, the VFW Post 342 and the American Legion Post 62, both of Rockford, were comprised of veterans who

were male and members of those particular posts. Many drum corps have been formed in the Rockford area since that time. By far the most prominent has been the Phantom Regiment. The Leaf River Summer Daze festival will begin Friday, May 30 with fireworks and end on Sunday with the parade. Before the parade, lunch will be available from the Lions Club, Leaf River United Methodist Church or one of the food vendors at the park.

The Forreston FFA Alumni will once again host its Tractor and Truck Pull on Saturday, May 31 during Leaf River Summer Daze. The pull begins at noon on Saturday, and features classes for antique tractors, farm tractors, trucks, and Badger State Pullers. The entry fee for pullers is $20. Spectator admission is $8, with kids 6 and under getting in free. This event is a fundraiser for the Forreston FFA Alumni, and it helps to support their organization as well as the Forreston High School FFA Chapter. In addition to the pulls, a Tractor Rodeo will be held at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 30, an antique tractor parade before the last pulling class, around 6 p.m. on Saturday, and a tractor show all weekend. Events take place at the track behind the River Valley Complex (formerly Leaf River School). Food will

be available throughout the weekend near the track, from various local organizations. Event sponsors include Channel Seeds, Green’s Motor Company, Eastland Feed and Grain, Burkardt’s LP, Bocker Grain, Bocker Ruff, Pearl City Elevator, Meadors Ag Service Inc., Heavy Equipment Service, LGL Trucking LLC, Ruckshot Ridge Farms and Excavating, Autoland Outlets, Witmer’s Precision Ag, LR Communications, Leaf River Land and Cattle, Martin and Company, Sloans Implement of Lanark, Illinois Truck and Equipment, Agrigold, MAD Acres, N-Trak, Double A Trenching and Excavating, and TANA Trucking.

They were welcomed to town and were helped with their portage around the dam, by a pair of kayakers that joined them on their trip from Byron to Oregon. “Some dams are more difficult to get around then others,� said Feik. “This one is easy.� The park has a path from the river’s edge about the dam that winds down to below the dam.

Board hires new superintendent From A1 The board awarded Smith a three-year contract with an annual salary of $136,500 for each of the first two years and $137,865 for the third year. The board started a superintendent search in late February after Superintendent Lowell A. Taylor tendered his resignation, which is effective June 15. The board hired the Illinois Association of School Boards to assist in the search. “We had many, many qualified candidates,� Ebbesmeyer said. “While the interview process required many hours of study and dialogue, it was an excellent

experience for the board. It challenged us to find a professional that fits into the long-term vision of this district. Mrs. Smith rose to the top of the list as we progressed.� Taylor, who had been the superintendent since 2001, stepped down Feb. 4 after an extended medical leave. Taylor went on sick leave in early August last year, and the board granted him medical leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) on Aug. 26, the same day it hired Dr. Jane Eichman, Rock Falls, as interim superintendent for the current school year.

The board suspended Taylor without pay in January and later rescinded that action to accept his resignation, along with a lengthy agreement.

Two area high school students are the recipients of the Mix It Up/Fields Project scholarship. Emily Hanlin, a senior at Byron High School and Beau Bunders, a senior at Forreston High School each received $750 scholarships. Mix It Up, is an annual sidewalk painting event held at Mix Park in Oregon. All proceeds from t-shirt and food sales for the event are put into a scholarship fund. The scholarship supports Ogle County high school seniors intending to pursue a career in an art or agriculture-related field. Hanlin, the daughter of Bill and Cindy Hanlin, Leaf River, will pursue a degree in agricultural education at Joliet Jr. College and then transfer to Western Illinois University to complete her bachelor’s degree. She hopes to work as a high school agriculture teacher. Hanlin participated in FFA and 4-H and was just elected Section 2 FFA president for 2014-2015.

Beau Bunders

Emily Hanlin

Her involvement in both organizations, along with the positive impact of her agriculture instruction and FFA advisor pointed her toward a future as an agricultural educator. Bunders, the son of Tom and Jill Bunders, Polo, will enroll at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and major in agribusiness management. Bunders has been active in FFA and 4-H. He credits those activities, along with high school classes in agriculture, plant/animal science, and horticulture with guiding his future career plans. “We’re thrilled to help

these students pursue their career goals,� said Maja Shoemaker, Mix It Up coordinator. “When we started our event five years ago, we awarded one $500 scholarship. Through the generosity of the community and our sponsors our fund has continued to grow.� This year’s sidewalk event is Saturday, June 21. Painting begins at 10 a.m. Registration forms can be found online at fieldsproject. com/mix-it-up/ or at Nash Recreation Center, Oregon. Event t-shirts can be ordered for $15, with all proceeds going to the scholarship fund.

School nurses are welcome to refer children and families to the clinic. The Elks Organization has been working with physically challenged children since 1928 and this is one of the 17 clinic locations throughout Illinois. The clinic is an ideal time to have a child reviewed for bone and joint development. If a child has feet pointing

out or in, complains of back, knee, leg, ankle pain, or has a back curvature, they can be seen at this clinic. The Elks will provide financial assistance to their best of their ability for children needing further treatment or specialty equipment when the family lacks sufficient resources to do so. In the past, the Elks have purchased therapy services, corrective shoes, braces, wheelchairs and augmentative communication devices to help children overcome a variety of physical challenges.

With summer’s arrival, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) reminds everyone to leave baby birds and wild animals alone. During the breeding season, well-meaning people often rescue birds and animals they believe have been orphaned or abandoned. In nearly all cases, the birds and animals are unnecessarily taken from the wild. Often, parents are still feeding their young but will not show themselves if people are present.

Storyteller will read at festival A storyteller and a comedy hypnotist will be the featured entertainment on Saturday, June 7 during German Valley Days. Storyteller Richard Meeks, an actor, teacher and member of the Reader’s Theater Group will take the stage at 6:30 p.m.

He will involve his audience as he spins his yarns from around the world, bringing out a moral in the end. Comedy Hypnosis by Cheryl will take the spotlight at 8 p.m. A professionallytrained stage hypnotist, Cheryl has performed at

Chicago’s Navy Pier and has done benefits for such causes as St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Wounded Warrior, Juvenile Diabetes and others. She entertains at school events, post prom parties and festivals. Audience volunteers become the stars of the show as they participate

in activities using powers of imagination and suggestion. Her presentation has been described as unscripted, laugh out loud, family friendly entertainment for ages 3 to 93. To learn more go to her Facebook page: Comedy Hypnosis by Cheryl.

This year’s German Valley Days Shopping Cart Race Sunday, June 8 at 1:30 p.m. at the corner of Prairie and Church Streets. The event

will benefit the German Valley Food Pantry. The entry fee is $5. Spectators and participants are invited to bring pantry

items. The most immediate need is for paper products and personal care items. All donated items and entry fees will go to the

pantry. Cash prizes of $100, $75 and $50 will be awarded to the contest’s fastest finishers.

Balloonist Eric van Est and his hot air balloon “Holland Blues� will be a part of the 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 became involved in judging at balloon rallies. He was a judge in national

championships in several European countries, in large rallies in Japan and in world championships in Luxemburg, and Battle Creek. Michigan. His increasing interest led him to obtain his pilot license and buy a balloon. He then moved to the United States with his newly acquired balloon, which was made in England. 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 “the balloon guy�. He wore his first balloon out in 2005 and replaced it with his current balloon. It is a 120.000 cubic foot Lindstrand type A manufactured by Lindstrand USA in Galena. It stands 82 feet high and is 75 feet wide at its widest

point, the equator. The basket holds four to five people and several propane tanks which provide fuel for the burners. The fabric portion, called the envelope, is nylon with flame resistant nomex at the bottom. The color pattern, designed by van Est, incorporates the red, white and blue of the Dutch flag, as well as different shades of blue, hence the name “Holland Blues�. 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. “The beauty of hot air ballooning is the views from the basket, the colorfulness of the balloon and the skill it takes to control something that big with that much power,� he said. “I hope to keep flying for

many more years to come.� Van Est 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 Est’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.

Public Voice Thank you for food donations Dear Editor, We did it again! Letter carriers at the Oregon Post Office along with postal employees and local volunteers teamed up to stamp out hunger in the community. I want to thank everyone who helped make this year’s Food Drive a success. It could not have been done without you. Across the country, the Food Drive – held in cooperation with the Postal Service – resulted in millions of pounds of non-perishable food collected and distributed to deserving charities nationwide. Closer to home, the Oregon

carriers collected 1,650 pounds of food from generous donations left at mailboxes, which were then delivered to local community food pantries. For more than twenty years our local community has come together for this important event to help make it successful. This clearly shows the generosity of everyone involved with the project – people who make a difference in other people’s lives. Paula Tegeler Oregon Postmaster

Dear Editor, A huge thank you to Oregon Police Officers, Officer Brad Cash and Cpl. Joe Brooks for helping our dog get up and out of the Rock River. Somehow he got out of our fenced in yard and ran to the river. Apparently he was “swimming� and couldn’t get a foot hold on the banks to get out. Our dog, Tyson is a Malamute mix, about 13 years old, who is experiencing failing eye sight and hearing loss, plus he has arthritis in his hind quarters. We adopted him about 11 years ago from Granny Rose Animal Shelter in Dixon. Our pets are a part of our family and Tyson had us very worried, once we realized he was out of the yard. Knowing he is arthritic, we can only imagine what could have happened if they had not helped him get out of the river. We can’t thank Officer Cash and Cpl. Brooks enough for a job well done and saving our family dog. Thank you,

thank you, thank you! and delightful in their efforts Tim and Mary Jorgenson to raise funds for Serenity.

Polo - Forreston Beat

Tri-County Press, Forreston Journal Thursday, May 29, 2014, Page A11

Cardinals season ends in 8 innings The Forreston Cardinals were knocked out of the Warren regional May 21 in extra innings. Winnebago earned the 5-2 victory in extra innings to advance. Winnebago scored one run in the first inning and both teams were held scoreless until the sixth when Bago added another run. Forreston tied the game in the bottom of the seventh and had a chance to score the winning run but the Winnebago defense held strong. Winnebago scored three runs in the eighth inning and prevented the Cardinals from scoring in the bottom of the eighth. Both teams had 5 hits each.

A big difference in the game was the 4 errors committed by Forreston. Richie Bartnick was 1-2 and Jonah Drake was 1-1 with an RBI. Ethan Groom was 1-4, Austin Groshans was 1-2 with a run, and Dylan Bushman was 1-3. Forreston pitchers for the game were Bartnick with 3 innings, 4 strikeouts, 1 walk, and 2 hits, Nathan Schneiderman went 4 innings with 8 strikeouts and a walk. Both pitchers gave up a run. Andrew Beasley came in to pitch the eighth inning and gave up 3 runs on 3 hits and Forreston-Polo’s Richie Bartnick dives safely back to first as Winnebago’s Noah Walker tries to tag him during May 21 action at the Warren Regional. The Cards fell to the Indians 5-2. Photo by Earleen Hinton a walk. The Cardinals finished the season with a 17-12 record and 11-3 in the NUIC.

finalists in 2009, two in 2011, two in 2012 and one last year. In 2014, those events have still been Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling card. Discus thrower Troy Pudlas also needs to be added to the mix. Pudlas has a season best throw of 161 feet, which has the potential to not only make the finals, but also win the event. The last couple of

years, a throw in the low to mid 160s has won the 1A title. In recent years, it has been Based upon sectional the relays and pole vault results, Pudlasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effort of leading the way for Oregon at 151â&#x20AC;&#x2122;8â&#x20AC;? is the No. 10 seed. the IHSA boys state track and The top mark is 165â&#x20AC;&#x2122;1â&#x20AC;? by field meet.

Last year, all four relays In 2013, it only took 140 advanced from Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet to advance to the finals. preliminaries to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pudlas has been in the finals. The vaulters had two background this year behind Ashton Rutherford and the relays. However, he may have as good of chance as anyone on the team of placing downstate. Rutherfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;7â&#x20AC;? is the No. 3 seed, behind a pair of 16-footers. The other 1A 16-footer, defending state champ and national agegroup record holder, Adam Coulon of Downs Tri-Valley, did not vault in the sectional due to injury. Still, the pole vault promises to be as competitive as 2A and 3A and is the feature event of the 1A meet. Matt McCoy of Lewistown has been over 15 feet and several others have cleared 14 feet or better. Remarkably, Rutherfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sectional clearance is the sixth best in the entire state, with Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashton Rutherford clears 14 feet 7 inches to 1A holding three of the top set a new school record Friday during the sectional track six spots overall.

prelims is sufficient to make the finals. The three Hawk relays are seeded anywhere from 18th (1,600 relay) to 25th (800 relay). Since a breakout year in 2008, Oregon has found ways to move past their seeds and make the finals. The top seed in the 400 relay is perennial sprint power Chicago Leo with a 43.35. Knoxville is No. 1 in the 800 at 1:30.49. In the 800 relay, 20 teams are within a second of each other, meaning that if Oregon can clean up handoffs the potential is there to advance. The best chance, though, is the 1,600 relay, an event where the Hawks have had considerable success over the years. Oneida ROWVA has the No. 1 seed at 3:28.06, in a slower field than in recent years. Rutherford is also entered in the 300 hurdles, where he seeded towards the bottom, likewise with Josh Drew in the 100 meters. Polo-Forreston has entries in the 800 and 1,600 relays and is slightly behind Oregon in each. Brian Cavanaugh looks to improve on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple jump, after being Polo-Forrestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brian Cavanaugh competes in the only two spots away from triple jump Friday at the Oregon Sectional.

Lady Cardinals defeated Byron 12-3 in regional The Forreston/Polo co-op High School 2014 softball season ended in the championship game of the Stillman Valley regional tournament. But the Cardinals won the semi-final tournament contest 12-3 over the Byron Tigers. Forreston trailed 3-1 after five innings but pounded out nine hits and 11 runs in the last two frames to secure the victory. Paige Peterson led the onslaught with three hits but it was Olivia Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resounding triple in the sixth inning that best exemplified the comeback effort. Rebekah Wilken, Alex Sterenberg and Abby

Peterson all contributed two hits each. Abby also pitched the complete game and struck out six. The championship game was against #1 seed Stillman Valley who entered the game with a 24-2 record and strong aspirations to go far in the state tournament. Forreston could muster only one hit of junior pitcher Peyton Abbott in a 10-0 loss. Abbott has already accepted a scholarship offer to attend Western Illinois in two years. Olivia Peterson connected for a line drive hit in the second inning but the team was held hitless the rest of the contest. Peterson was playing her final game in a Forreston

uniform as was fellow senior Hanna Metzger an outfielder. Stillman Valley continues on to play in the Byron Sectional tournament. Forreston/Polo finishes the season with a 16-12 record and a fourth place conference finish. The program will return eight starters for the 2015 season. Statistically, sophomore shortstop Destiny Darmon led the offense with a .494 batting average while sophomore outfielder Paige Peterson hit .417. Senior catcher Olivia Peterson sported a .411 batting average , junior Hailey Ingram hit .391 and Forreston-Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abby Peterson releases a pitch against Byron during the 2A Stillman sophomore pitcher Abby Valley Regional.

SECTION B

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Strong finish for team at sectional Some just shy of qualifying for state meet By Andy Colbert Reporter The Oregon 1A track sectional did not start the way Polo-Forreston wanted May 23 and it ended in a strange, but beneficial way. P-F had hopes of qualifying all four of its relays, but took third in the 3,200 and 400. The team of Max Barkalow, Nathan Stukenberg and Brian and Brad Cavanaugh did place second in the 800 relay (1:32.93) to Oregon and advance to state. “We knew we’d have some distance between us and the third seed, so we rested Grobe (sprint finalist),” P-F coach Ryan Deets said. “We have great splits and our handoffs were clean. The 200 is the distance we train sprinters for and it paid off.” The Cavanaugh brothers tied for the third in the high jump, losing on misses to 3-event winner Chris Walker of North Boone and Peter Hodapp of Byron, with each clearing 6-foot-1. Only Walker and Hodapp moved on to Charleston, though. “We had a lot of bridesmaids with the thirdplaces,” said a disappointed P-F coach Ryan Deets. And, that’s the way it looked like the meet was going to finish for the hardluck P-F team. Coming around the curve on the final leg of the 1,600 relay, Oregon and Byron were battling it out for first place, with P-F in third place. Somehow, though, Pierce Dhaese’s cleats ended up knocking the baton out of the hand of Byron’s most experienced runner, TJ Pitcock. A fast-approaching Brian Cavanaugh took

advantage of the miscue and followed Dhaese home for second place (3:31.26 to 3:33.37). Byron fell back to fourth at 3:38. “I was at the far end and didn’t even see it,” Deets said. “Next thing I know we’re in second. Thankfully, that didn’t end up being our third third place in the relays.” Brian Cavanaugh also repeated as a triple jump state qualifier. Walker won the event with a leap of 45-2 and Cavanaugh went 41-6. Joining Cavanaugh on the 1,600 relay were his brother Brad, Barkalow and Kevin Cheeseman. It was emotional scene afterwards, as Brian was surrounded by his teammates after collapsing to the ground with a combination of joy and fatigue. Even if Byron wouldn’t have dropped the baton, it would have been interesting to see if Cavanaugh would West Carroll’s Jacob Kasey, left, and Polo-Forreston’s Nathan Rinaldo compete in the 110 meter hurdle prelims in have caught them. Oregon. Photo by Chris Johnson “I’m just happy to get second and go to the state,” Deets said. Another close call for P-F was a third place in the 200 by Stukenberg. Tristan Fox of Lena-Winslow, who earlier won the 400 and 800, nipped Stukenberg 23.61 to 23.74. Fox beat Stukenberg out of the blocks, but Stukenberg nearly caught up with him by the end of the race. It was Fox stealing the second-place spot from P-F on the anchor leg of the 3,200 relay. Ethan Ditzler, Jesse Ditzler, Kaleb Reining and Cheeseman ran an 8:38 compared to 8:33 for Le-Win. “The plan was for Brian to anchor that relay instead of Cheeseman, but he wasn’t done in the triple jump,” Deets said. “It probably wouldn’t have mattered. We only had a 20-yard lead on Le-Win and with Fox running anchor, you need more than that. Cheeseman did great.

Abbott’s pitching shuts down Lady Cards’ offense By Andy Colbert Reporter In an 11-0 loss to Stillman Valley in a 2A regional softball final May 24, Forreston quickly discovered just how good of a pitcher Payton Abbott is. In the top of the first inning, Abbott only threw 10 pitches and nine of them were strikes to Destiny Darman, Abby Peterson and Paige Peterson. “She looked like she was going to blow us away in the first inning,” Forreston coach Terry Pierce said. “She was

overpowering.” “She was on today,” SV coach Shawn Byers said. From that point on, though, Forreston began to make a bit more contact with the ball. Even a foul ball was cause for a cheer. “We made adjustments,” Pierce said. “We had foul ball after foul ball. A lot of them were hard drives down the left, which means we were making good contact.” Unfortunately, Forreston could only muster one hit off Abbott. In the second inning,

Olivia Peterson led off with a well-hit single to right center, but Abbott had two more strikeouts and an infield fly out to end any chance of Forreston scoring. In the fourth, Peterson reached first again on an error. She was stranded, as Abbott forced three infield pop-ups that she caught herself. Forreston did keep the game close, only trailing 1-0 going into the bottom of the third. Pitcher Abby Peterson retired the first two Stillman batters, but Abbott

reached base on a fielding error. A single up the middle by Karissa Dobson drove in Abbott’s pinch runner to make it 2-0. Then, Lexi Morrison connected on a ground-rule double, moving Dobson to third. A wild pitch by Peterson allowed Dobson to score. Morrison was advanced home on an infield single by Courtney Fernette. Fernette, a freshman, would reach base all four times she batted. Peterson finally got a SV batter to ground out, but the

score read 4-0. “I was satisfied we didn’t give up a massive inning of runs,” Pierce said. “I really wanted to go seven innings.” Abbott helped her cause by knocking a hard grounder up the middle to drive in two more runs in the fourth inning for a 6-0 lead. “They were beautiful hitting the ball up the middle,” Pierce said. I’d like to find out who the Stillman Valley hitting coach is, because I want him.” In the fifth inning, Markie Woolbright drove in two

more Cardinal runs to make it 8-0. Catcher Olivia Peterson hooked up with shortstop Destiny Darmon to throw out a steal attempt by Woolbright, quelling the scoring rally.

A headsStillman won the game 5-1 The game will be played in up play in left field by Paige and will face the winner of the Byron. Patterson held Dobson at third. Dobson then came home on a walk and SV needed only one more run to close the game out. They got two, as the 11th hit of the game for SV, a blooper to short left, brought two runners in for the final of 11-0. “I do think our bats were a little anxious,” Byers said. “We need to relax more.” SV (25-2) moves on to the Byron Sectional. Its only losses this season were to Rock Island Alleman and McHenry at the Harlem tournament. “We didn’t pitch Peyton in either game because we might play Alleman in the sectional and didn’t want them to scout her,” Byers said. Forreston bows out with a 16-12 record in Pierce’s first season. Other than Peterson at catcher, every starter returns. “I had to learn the players the first half of the season,” Pierce said. “In the second half, we played everyone tough.

Woodstock North vaulter. She wanted to thank those of us at Oregon for helping her son. He was a good athlete, but was hampered by not having a proper sized pole to use and not really having a vaulting coach. Though they were in competition with him, the Oregon vaulters gave him one of their poles to use, which he almost ended up beating Ashton Rutherford on. They also offered tips and encouragement. The mom also shared about Woodstock North not having indoor facilities and how

Rutherford is having such a good year in track is because of the generosity of Byron. As soon as he needed them, Byron immediately loaned Rutherford two poles to use, one of which he used By Andy Colbert to clear 14’-3” in winning the Reporter conference meet.

Likewise, if other It was a mother of a schools need a pole, we also share ours. Polo recently started pole vault and all they have to practice on is in a long jump pit. On an occasional Sunday, they come over to Oregon to practice. A legalistic person might say, ‘Oh, you can’t let outsiders in. What if someone gets hurt and sues us.” Basically, there are two human emotions that decisions are based on – love or fear. Unfortunately, too much of society’s decisions are based upon fear and that legalistic view is one such example. I’d rather operate on a spirit of love. Here at Oregon, we have nice facilities and it is pleasure to share it with those in need. If Polo did not have pole vaulting, they would not have scored enough points to win the NUIC title, so maybe a teeny-tiny part of that win is because of Oregon.

neighboring schools would not allow any type of shared usage for pole vaulting at their places. According to her, schools in that area do not really help another out and she was pleasantly surprised to see the camaraderie that existed at Oregon. I did not doubt one bit what she was saying about schools not offering mutual aid to one another. I’ve witnessed it myself before.

everyone. That can start at your own school. Take Ian Starkey for example. Though he is a senior, he takes time away from his own practice time to help instruct the freshmen and even junior high pole vaulters. A lot of upperclassmen wouldn’t do that. Instead, maybe bullying is more their thing. Ian is helping to nurture a spirit of love and service, which is such an integral part of making the high school sports experience enjoyable for all. Those freshmen he is mentoring will learn not only the mechanics of pole vaulting, but more importantly, learn about treating everyone equally, no matter what the grade level. In all of high school sports, perhaps the most important question we need to ask ourselves is not how much we can beat the other team by, but rather how best can we serve them. *** I need to offer an apology to Jerry Baker. In the girls state track preview last week, I mentioned that Shannon Cullen was looking to become the first throwing state champ at Oregon for either the boys or girls. That’s incorrect. Jerry won a Class A title in the discus in 1982 with a throw of 165’-5”. I even knew that, but it slipped my mind. In 1982, I was still commuting from Rochelle to my job at Lorado Taft Campus. One Sunday afternoon while driving on

Andy Colbert

highway 64 near the Chana blacktop, I distinctly recall seeing a big sign up in a yard announcing Jerry Baker being a state champ in the discus. It had to have been his parent’s place. Though I hadn’t integrated myself into the Oregon sports culture yet, I was a huge fan of track and field and thought it was pretty neat for the new town I was working in to have state champ. For the record, there have been 15 state champs between Oregon and Mt. Morris school districts. In order, they are: Ward Scott (1913, long jump), Sherm Landers (1916, pole vault and hurdles), Pete Longman of Mt. Morris (1932, mile), Dick Haas (1956, hurdles), Jerry Baker (1982, discus), Dan Davis of Mt. Morris (1983, 800 run) 3,200 relay (1998), Andy Tremble (2003, 3,200 run), Ashley Harvey (2004, pole vault), Martin McCormick (2005, 400 run), Adam Tate (2005, pole vault), Jordan Thomas (2009, 100 and 200 runs) and 1,600 relay (2013).

Portion of Ill. 72 shuts down after chemical spill A portion of Ill. 72 was closed to motorists for more than six hours May 22 after a truck carrying chemicals overturned west of Ill. 26, in northwestern Ogle County. Shannon Fire Chief Jim Klinefelter said a small spill occurred when a truck from Viking Chemical, Rockford, went out of control and overturned around 1:50 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Viking Chemical truck was making routine deliveries today when the driver apparently lost control. There were no injuries,â&#x20AC;? said Klinefelter at the scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a small spill and everything was contained.â&#x20AC;? He said the truck was carrying five chemicals but only one spilled. The chemicals on the truck included sodium hydroxide solution, sulfuric acid, hydrochloride solution, fluorosilicic acid, and phosphoric sulfuric acid, he said. Klinefelter said he did not know which one of the five

spilled. However, the 911 call to emergency personnel indicated that sulfuric acid had spilled from the truck. Klinefelter said Viking sent a clean-up crew to the site. Clean-up and fire crews finally left the scene shortly after 8 p.m., he said. He said a hazardous materials crew from MABAS Division 17, as well as Illinois Environmental Protection Agency representatives, had been called to the site. Fire department crews from Lanark, Milledgeville, Shannon, Chadwick, Mt. Carroll, and Pearl City also assisted at the scene as did Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn and county deputies. Crews from the Illinois Department of Transportation also helped detour traffic around the portion of the road that was closed. The accident occurred west of Mt. Vernon Road and east of Fork Creek Road, about two miles west of the Carroll County line.

A portion of Ill. 72 was closed to motorists May 22 when a truck carrying chemicals overturned. At 5 p.m. Shannon Fire Chief Jim Klinefelter said the spill was contained and there were no injuries. At left, ambulances and fire trucks were staged at a residence west of the chemical spill. No one was injured in the accident. Photos by Earleen Hinton

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that approximately seven percent of our nation’s healthcare costs can be attributed to the effects of smoking.

The economic benefit to the nation is obvious. If you smoke the benefits of quitting are improved health and well being. The health benefits of quitting begin just minutes after stopping. Within 20

One to nine months later, coughing and shortness of breath are less as the tiny hairs responsible for cleaning mucous and debris out of the lung begin regrow and function again.

Help is available to stop smoking or using other forms of tobacco by calling the Illinois Tobacco Quitline at 1-866-Quit-Yes, online at quityes.org and through your healthcare provider.

State fire marshal offers safety tips for outdoor fires With the season for outdoor cooking and camping trips now here, the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is encouraging campers to consider fire safety as a priority to ensure a safe and fun experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camping and other outdoor activities that involve building a fire should be enjoyable for the entire family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for campers to be aware of rules and regulations governing open fires. Everyone should use common sense and keep fire safety in mind when cooking or engaging in other

activities that involve fire,â&#x20AC;? said State Fire Marshal Larry Matkaitis. Campers that fail to follow adequate fire safety measures can jeopardize the safety of themselves, their friends and loved ones. Lack of caution can also cause wild fires, brush fires, serious damage to natural resources and personal property. Fires should never be left unattended and campers should check with state parks, campsites and recreation areas for rules on cooking and campfires. More than 200 uncontrolled

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for campers to be aware of rules and regulations governing open fires. Everyone should use common sense and keep fire safety in mind when cooking or engaging in other activities that involve fire,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Larry Matkaitis State Fire Marshal campsite fires were reported in Illinois between 2005 and 2012. Many of those fires could have been prevented if proper safety procedures were followed. The following is a list of additional fire safety tips for campers:

Be familiar with the campsite rules on campfires or grilling. If a fire ring is not available, select a site a safe distance away from dry grass, trees and tents. Choose a site downwind from the sleeping area to prevent catching camping

equipment or other combustibles on fire. Avoid building fires in dry or windy conditions. Campfires should be at least 15 feet away from tents, walls, shrubs, or other flammable materials. Do not use gasoline or other petroleum basedliquids, as they can cause dangerous explosions. Avoid using gel fuel pots, as the product may explode and can cause serious injuries.

have a pail of sand or water nearby along with an extinguisher and a shovel in case they are needed to control a fire. Never leave a grill or a campfire unattended. Keep at least three feet away from grills or campfires. Keep matches and lighters away from children. Make sure that grilling areas and campfires are completely extinguished before going to bed. For more information on campground fire safety, go Keep your fire at a to www.sfm.illinois.gov or manageable size and always www.fire.ca.gov.

HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, your thoughts are distant right now, almost as if you’re living in a fantasy world. This is creatively beneficial but not so helpful for practical tasks. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you’re not careful, you could find yourself debating family and friends this week. Instead, try to sit back and listen rather than fostering debate. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, a realization about what is really important to you instills a renewed sense of confidence this week. You will be focused on important things. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if your finances seem like they are in a state of upheaval, it could be because you have not looked at everything in black and white just yet. Make some changes.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 You come on too strong sometimes, Leo. Those who know you best can handle this approach, but you can scare off potential new friends if you do not ease up. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Be patient and do not demand too much of yourself during the next few days, Virgo. You need to keep your workload light; otherwise, you may get easily overwhelmed. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 This is a time to discover the value of others, Libra. A willingness to try new things and delegate some responsibilities will free up your calendar. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Certain personalities don’t always click, Scorpio. Don’t feel the need to overcompensate for a strained relationship. Spend more time with those with whom you connect.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Flexible thinking is key, Sagittarius, especially as you face a few new challenges this week. There are some opportunities to reconnect with family later in the week. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 A rush of activity fills your calendar and keeps your phone ringing off the hook, Capricorn. Your challenge will be separating the pressing events from others. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, paperwork has built up and requires more time than you had originally planned. There is no way to avoid this task, but a helper can make it move more quickly. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Moderation is your mantra for the week, Pisces. Do not let the pendulum swing too far in either direction.
