Village Board offers funds to Sullivan’s store By Vinde Wells Editor The Mt. Morris Village Board is doing its best to keep a grocery store in town. The board agreed Jan. 28 to offer substantial incentives to entice a grocery store owner Scott Sullivan to expand his business in the community. After a lengthy discussion, the board agreed to offer Sullivan real estate tax abatements, sales tax rebates, and waived sewer and water fees. Board member Mary Francis, who chairs the Finance Committee, said Sullivan is considering building a new $3 million store in Mt. Morris and has been discussing with village officials what they can offer.

She called it an “exciting prospect� for the village. Sullivan currently owns and operates a grocery store on Ill. 64 in the village. He owns three adjoining parcels of land at the site, where the new store would also be located. Village clerk Paula Diehl said she and village president Dan Elsasser have been meeting with Sullivan to discuss the possible incentives and his plan for the store. The board went over Sullivan’s proposal for incentives. Although no total amount of the proposed incentives was available, Elsasser called them “considerable.� “We are fortunate to still have a grocery store in this

town,� he said. “If we lose our grocery store that would be bad.� The board agreed to offer Sullivan a 100 percent abatement of the village’s portion of real estate taxes on his property for 13 years. Sullivan paid $1,239 to the village in property taxes in 2013 for the three parcels. His total tax bill on the property came to $8,266. The board also agreed to rebate sales tax for 10 years

for the amount over what they currently receive from the grocery store. Currently, the village gets approximately $40,500 in sales tax per year from the store. They would continue to receive that, but would rebate anything more than that amount back to Sullivan at the end of the fiscal year. The board also agreed to waive all sewer and water fees on the new facility for four years.

Diehl said the monthly bill for those services is currently $300 to $400. Elsasser said Sullivan’s proposal also requested an expansion of the current tax increment funding (TIF) district to include his property or the establishment of an additional TIF district that would include the site. A TIF district is a method of financing economic development projects by freezing the equalized

assessed value (EAV) of the affected area for up to 23 years. Taxing bodies then draw taxes from that frozen EAV, not from any increase in the EAV over the time period of the TIF. Taxpayers in the TIF, however, pay taxes on the EAV with its increases. The amount of taxes from the EAV increases (above the Turn to A3

BOR sets value at $509 million for Exelon plant By Vinde Wells Editor The Ogle County Board of Review (BOR) chose the middle ground last week when it set the assessment of Exelon’s Byron Generating Station.

Property Tax Appeal Board, which has not yet made its ruling. Exelon paid more than $32 million in real estate taxes last year to 11 taxing bodies, which include Ogle County, Rockvale Township, Byron School District, Oregon School District, Oregon Park District, Byron Fire District, Rock Valley College, Byron Public Library District, Byron Museum District, Byron Forest Preserve District, and Kishwaukee Community College. The Byron School District received the largest share of that money — $18.4 million. The value of the Byron Generating Station has frequently been disputed throughout the history of the facility. A four-year agreement between the taxing bodies and Exelon for the plant’s assessment expired at the end of 2011. The agreement, approved in November of 2010, set the assessed value of the nuclear plant at $450 million for 2008, $460 million in 2009, $470 million in 2010, and $480 million in 2011. Besides setting the plant’s value, the agreement settled a lawsuit and numerous tax appeals filed between 2005 and 2008. Commonwealth Edison, which formerly owned the plant, filed its first tax in 1989 when the assessment was more than $1 billion. The following year, the affected taxing bodies formed the Ogle County

Road crews hit overtime By Chris Johnson Reporter A long winter with a seemingly endless duration has led some county employees to accumulate overtime at the same rate as the snow is falling. Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook oversees the highway department. A crew of 13 work throughout the winter to keep the county roads clear of snow and ice. “We have been focusing on clearing all the county roads we maintain,� said Cook. “Our guys have only had two days off since the beginning of Edward, Cian, Ethan, Sophia, and David show off the slices of pizza they made December.� The snowfalls have been while learning P is for pizza at preschool story time at the Mt. Morris Public Library. steady since the beginning Preschoolers meet every Thursday morning at 11:30 for an Alphabet Adventure. Photo of the season with multiple supplied

snowfalls each week, he said. “When it is not snowing, we are preparing for the next snow,� said Cook. “We have worked in tandem crews to push back the snow drifts so we can put the snow someplace during the next storm.� As soon as this work is done, there has been another storm which adds to the snowfall. When it is not snowing, Cook said there has been drifting snow which adds to the workload. “We go back out and plow the drifted roads to keep the county roads safe,� he said. All of this work has led to overtime. “Our guys are getting tired of winter,� Cook said. “They have been working close to 80

hours per week.� This overtime will impact the highway department budget later this year. Cook said he will need to examine some road projects and maintenance after the winter clean up total is finalized to see what might need to be cut to keep a balanced budged for the year. Keeping the trucks on the roads has been costing $20,000 per week in fuel. “Our equipment is ready for the snow forecast for February,� Cook said. Reporter Christopher Heimerman went on a ride along with Ogle County plow driver Dave Boehle last week. His story appears on page A9.

Ogle County Board approves two percent raises By Vinde Wells Editor The supervisors of five Ogle County departments were granted raises last month. The Ogle County Board approved two percent pay hikes Jan. 21 for five appointed county officials — Engineer Curtis Cook, Focus House Director Matt Mekeel, Supervisor of Assessments Jim Harrison, Zoning Administrator Mike Reibel, and Solid Waste Management Director Steve Rypkema.

A motion in December for a three percent raise for Cook sparked a debate and then was amended, defeated, and sent back to the Road & Bridge Committee for further study. Some county board members objected to Cook’s raise in December because other department heads did not get pay hikes. However, county board member Lyle Hopkins, who chairs the Road & Bridge Committee, said the state sets guidelines for the county engineer’s salary, and Cook’s is in the middle

of the range. He said Cook’s salary does not come from county coffers; half comes from state Motor Fuel Tax funds and the rest from federal funds. The pay hike means Cook’s salary will increase from $114,660 to $116,954, Mekeel’s will go from $64,818 to $66,114, and the others will increase from $68,500 to $69,870. Board chairman Kim Gouker said Jan. 21 that elected department heads cannot be granted raises in the middle of their terms.

Intergovernmental Agency Board to fight the tax appeals. The first multi-year agreement, approved in early 1998, set the assessments for 1997-2004 at $471 million and settled a decade of lawsuits and tax appeals. Exelon and the Ogle County Intergovernmental Agency Board are not currently actively negotiating for an assessment agreement.

because it will not benefit Sullivan’s proposed expansion. Either option would take several months to accomplish, Elsasser said, and could not be done before Sullivan wants to break ground. However, he said the TIF expansion or additional district could benefit the village in

the future by attracting more businesses. “Looking at more than Sullivan’s is the reason to create a TIF,� Elsasser said. Board member Jon Murray agreed.�I think the grocery store as a center point will bring other businesses to town,� he said.

The TIF Fund can be used for low-interest loans for businesses wishing to locate in the TIF district or for improvements in the TIF District such as roads and sewer and water mains. According the state statutes, only municipal boards have the authority to establish TIFs.

He played an arrangement of “He Lives� and “Turn Your Radio On� with outstanding precision. Watching his hands move gracefully up and down the piano keyboard was almost as beautiful as the music he produced. Our church family is truly thankful that Riley chose to share his amazing talent. His parents, Howard and Marci, and brothers and sister joined us for the worship service. After church, I joined a group of our church family for lunch. Pastor Gregg and Sue Downs, Don and Vicki Hay, Jim and Nancy Hopkins, Sandra Ford, and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and great fellowship at the Pinecricker. On Saturday morning, the men’s breakfast group met at the church in spite of the continuing snowfall. Those in attendance were Pastor Gregg Downs, Jim Hopkins, John Engle, Dave Burright, Ron Baker, and Larry Riffle.

While Jim Hopkins was the host for the breakfast, the men suspected that his wife, Nancy, was the provider of the fantastic meal. The men’s group welcomes new members on the first Saturday of the month at 7 a.m. Once again, it was too cold for school on Monday and Tuesday this past week. The students returned to school and to their normal activities on Wednesday. In the evening, the Marco wrestling team hosted a meet and their senior night activities.

I was so excited to walk Matt on to the floor as he nears the end of his high school wrestling career. Matt didn’t get the chance to wrestle that night, but Clint did. He was unable to defeat his opponent. On Saturday, Clint joined the Marco wrestling team for the tournament in Oregon, doing a little better and placing fourth in his class. Congratulations to the Marco wrestling team and good luck as you finish out your season. When I returned home from work on Saturday

afternoon, my driveway was once again blocked with snow. I climbed over the piles and grabbed my shovel to clear the path so I could pull my van in and unload my groceries. After a few minutes of shoveling, Joe, my neighbor from across the street, joined me with his shovel. We talked about the huge amounts of snow as we shoveled and cleared the path. Soon I was able to continue with my work of unloading my van. I left again to continue with a few more errands and

According to an article last month in The Pantagraph, a daily newspaper that serves Bloomington, Normal, and the surrounding area, Exelon recently settled a tax dispute with the LaSalle County Board over the value of Exelon’s LaSalle County Generating Station at Seneca. The article said the plant’s value was set at an average of $485 million each year for the seven-year agreement. Eleven taxing bodies receive

property tax revenue from the plant. Construction of the Byron Generating Station began in 1975. The first reactor started producing electricity in 1985 and the second went on line in 1987. The two reactors at the LaSalle County station went on line in 1984 and are capable of producing less electricity than those at the Byron plant.

First Fridays returns to the VFW February will already be a week old when its First Friday rolls around. Think of it as the first sign of an early spring when musicians from the region gather at the Oregon VFW for live music entertainment starting at 7 p.m. Each musician (or band) will have 15 minutes at center stage. The evening will

continue until each group has been featured. Musicians from across Northern Illinois, and often neighboring states, appear on a regular basis. The music is varied and includes country, bluegrass, blues, folk, gospel, soft rock, and eclectic mixes of all of the above. Instruments are all acoustic and a professional

sound system is supplied. Participation is encouraged so bring an instrument and join the show, or kick back and just enjoy the music. First Fridays is a part of Northern Illinois’ Friday night music scene along with 2nd Fridays in Lanark, 3rd Fridays in Franklin Grove, 4th Fridays in Polo, and special Fifth Friday (when

they occur) shows in Franklin Grove. The VFW features an extensive menu of quality food and beverage. Admission is by free will donation. Bring a friend and enjoy some great music. The Oregon VFW Club is located at 1310 W. Washington St. on Ill. 64 at the west edge of Oregon.

Ogle Sheriff Dept. advertisement raises questions By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media The Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department returned a combined $1.3 million to the county by being under its budget the past 2 years. The department made the announcement with paid advertisements. Those ads, and their relation to the March 18 primary election, were questioned by a county resident during an Ogle County Board meeting last week. according to a story published by Ogle County Life, a weekly newspaper. The print ad was placed in Ogle County Life and the Rochelle News Leader, Sheriff Michael Harn said in an email. They cost $1,008 each. Radio advertisements are also running on at least one radio station. Harn didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t respond to a separate email requesting information about the radio ads. On Tuesday, Sauk Valley Media submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for information about the radio ads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took out the ads because the people in Ogle County are entitled to know that their tax dollars are being spent wisely, not recklessly as portrayed in your newspaper,â&#x20AC;? Harn said in an earlier email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Returning unspent budget money to the degree the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office has the past 2 years is extraordinary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a record in fact. Taxpayers also needed to know actual spending has been slashed to near 2007 levels each of the past 3 years.â&#x20AC;? The ads were paid for from

the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative tow fund, which Sauk Valley Media reported in December is a fund not listed in the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Harn uses that money at his discretion for Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department needs. Sauk Valley Media also reported on the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit card use, which included thousands of dollars in meals at local restaurants for â&#x20AC;&#x153;training,â&#x20AC;? personal purchases that were paid directly to the credit card company, and alterations to the credit card bills, which Harn defended as corrections. The personal purchases and the lunchtime â&#x20AC;&#x153;trainingâ&#x20AC;? were stopped before Sauk Valley Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reporting, Harn noted. The alterations to bills also have stopped, he said, because they were done to remove charges the county was not supposed to pay. Other uses for the tow fund include $700 for a tent at the Ogle County Fair, $22,947 for a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500, and $4,000 for Heartland Studios to manage the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page. Radio advertisements also were paid for from the tow fund in October and November 2013. On Jan. 20, Sauk Valley Media reported on the unspent money that had been returned to the general fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We operate in the state of Illinois, where the people are overtaxed by a state and federal government that are in debt from overspending,â&#x20AC;? Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s email said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ogle County Board and the sheriff should be cheered not jeered by your newspaper and socalled watchdogs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took out the ads because the people in Ogle County are entitled to know that their tax dollars are being spent wisely,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sheriff Michael Harn â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your endless series of negative articles are political and cross the line, when the real picture should be superior performance. Sauk Valley [Media] reported nothing positive until our ad ran, coincidence?â&#x20AC;? David Morrison is a policy adviser for the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, a non-partisan public interest group that conducts research on the role of money in politics, among other issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with a public official explaining what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and what their office is about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, a public officer shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use public dollars to supplement their campaign.â&#x20AC;? In his email, Harn said the ad had nothing to do with the primary election, that he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started campaigning for re-election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less than 2 months from the primary election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the ad could be viewed as part of his campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ad is not political,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office business that the people should know about. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money being returned, not the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, which is how I look at it and why there is money to return in the first place.â&#x20AC;? A test for the political

nature of the ad, Morrison said, could be whether it touts the office or the person and whether the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department has published similar ads in previous years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when there were no elections. The ad begins with: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheriff Michael Harn announced the largest return of unspent budgeted money by the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office in Ogle County history. A total of $766,000 was returned to the Ogle County general fund in December 2013. The returned funds broke the previous record also held by Sheriff Harn, when $572,000 of unspent budget was returned in 2012. Since Sheriff Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reorganization of the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, he has returned a total of $1,392,000 to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general fund.â&#x20AC;? The ad includes a chart of the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unspent money returned to the general fund from 2003 to 2013. Harn took office in December 2010. The ad also includes several quotes from Harn talking about how the money has been saved and a quote from Ogle County Board member Don Griffin, who, according to the ad, worked with Harn to decide to repair a county roof rather than replace it, which saved the county about $200,000 in

fiscal year 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate the fact that we have a public official like Sheriff Harn, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat a budget as something to be spent entirely,â&#x20AC;? Griffin said in the ad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Government needs to be responsible in spending hard-earned taxpayer money, not just in tough times, but all the time. Although big ticket savings get the most attention, the sheriff listens to each and every suggestion large or small from our team that may allow the county to save money, and he acts on many of them.â&#x20AC;? In the ad, Harn says money has also been saved by reducing overtime and by deputies being used more effectively, which has reduced miles driven by 100,000 a year and saved on fuel and maintenance costs. The ad includes the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department logo, information about the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page, and information about the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget decreasing from $6.6 million in 2009 to $5.9 in 2013. The Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department has previously run ads, Harn said, to alert people to the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page, wellness and safety checks for unattended property, consequences of holiday drinking and driving, and deer on roadways during mating season. The more people who know what the sheriff is doing and what his duties are, the more effective the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department can be with the community, Morrison said, adding that that type of dialogue often can start only from the

elected official. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be [that dialogue],â&#x20AC;? Morrison said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can also totally be about selfimportance.â&#x20AC;? Harn said he had not been campaigning, which he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;can wait.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at my campaign Facebook page and you will see the extent of my campaigning. There have been no ads,â&#x20AC;? Harn said in the email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people of Ogle County deserve a sheriff who works as their sheriff, not one who campaigns full time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe if we continue to work hard on the street by clearing burglaries at 72 percent here versus a national average of 12 percent [and] continue to be proactive as evidenced by an arrest rate up by 4 times since 2010, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be re-elected. I will actively campaign when we get closer to the election.â&#x20AC;? A post about the returned money appeared on the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department Facebook page at 4:19 p.m. Jan. 14. A post about the returned money, which was the first paragraph of the ad, appeared on Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reelection Facebook page 22 minutes later. Since Jan. 1, two other posts have showed up on the campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page. The first, on Jan. 13, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;?Everyone has been asking when the Harn signs are going up. Starting Wednesday â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Game On.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If you would like a sign please message me with the location you want the sign. Thanks.â&#x20AC;? The other post, from Jan. 20, was a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.

Frost heave has caused bumpy roads this winter By Kathleen Schultz Sauk Valley Media Add this to the list of annoying winter weather maladies: frost heave. Like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough to white-knuckle it to work, skidding on snow and ice, now you also have to worry about knocking a tooth loose surfing road waves. Blame frost heave. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happens: The bone-chilling cold

causes the ground to freeze a foot or so down, far enough that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thaw all winter. Then comes a couple of warm days, a nice spell that causes snow to melt, maybe a little rainfall. Water trickles through the cracks in the pavement, seeps through the upper layer of earth thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close enough to the surface to thaw a wee bit, then hits the frozen wall. Temperatures drop, and that trapped moisture freezes,

pushing the pavement up around the fissures in the pavement and creating a concrete washboard that rattles your bones and sends your teeth clacking and your chassis chattering. Once the weather starts to warm, you might see the phenomenon in action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the springtime, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start to see the road weeping,â&#x20AC;? Whiteside County engineer Russ Renner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moisture weeps out of the cracks,

and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see water on the pavement on a warm, sunny day, because the ground is still frozen and the water has no place to go but back up through the cracks.â&#x20AC;? Trisha Thompson, acting operations engineer in the Illinois Department of Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dixon office, says frost heave happens every winter, to some extent. It occurs mostly on the old two-lanes, built around the

beginning of the last century with poor subgrading that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drain well and tends to hold moisture, she said. The good news: The ruptured roads should flatten back out once the world thaws back to normal. In the meantime, the problem can be alleviated by grinding the road surface, but too much grinding can result in a dip after the road settles back to normal, causing an even bigger problem,

Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an extreme safety issue, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tend to do a lot of grinding,â&#x20AC;? she said. Except for the usual Sisyphean task of trying to keep the cracks sealed, few repairs should be needed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to predict entirely,â&#x20AC;? Renner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of wait until things settle down,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;then go out and find whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong and fix it.â&#x20AC;?

OHS alumni being sought for March 20 Band Extravaganza Former members of the Oregon High School band and Mt. Morris High School band are invited to participate in the 20th Annual Band Extravaganza on Thursday, March 20. The band extravaganza is a yearly event that showcases band students in grades five through 12. The 5th/6th grade band, the David L. Rahn Junior High band, and the Oregon High School band will perform as separate bands and also as a combined band. “It is amazing to see the

progression that students make from the start of fifth grade to high school,” said Andy Eckardt, Oregon High School band director. “The students enjoy playing together. For this year’s seniors who started band in fifth grade, it will be their eighth year playing at the extravaganza.” In addition to performances by current members of the bands, many years there are guest performers and a guest conductor. The event was started 20 years ago by current DLR

Jr. High Band director Miles Beske and former high school band director Mitch Lauer. “Since this is our 20th year, we decided to make the performance bigger and better than ever,” said Eckardt. “We plan on playing two pieces that will feature all current band students, as well as any alumni that would like to join us.” Any alumni that would like to participate should contact Andy Eckardt at aeckardt@ ocusd.net.

Plow drivers work hard to keep roads clear By Christopher Heimerman Sauk Valley Media Ever lie in bed at night, wondering whether you could’ve done a better job at work? Could you have closed another sale? Maybe you can’t remember whether you put a cover sheet on all of your TPS reports. Prepare to feel silly. Dave Boehle wonders whether he did enough to preserve the health – and lives, frankly – of his fellow man. “You never switch it off,” the longtime Oregon resident said while I rode along on his snow plowing route Tuesday morning. “You’re still thinking about, ‘Maybe I should’ve ran that route. ... Is that one still OK? Maybe that’s my first objective tomorrow.’ It’s very hard to shut it off.” His pre-occupation with his occupation should come as little surprise. He and the 13 other members of the Ogle County Highway Department are something beyond dedicated, as reflected by their recent attendance record: 55 days elapsed; 53 days worked. Oh, except for foreman Joe Palmer. He worked Christmas, too. So he’s 54-for-55. “He does a fantastic job for us,” Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook said of Palmer, who has filled the role for almost 10 years. “In the wintertime, Joe doesn’t get a lot of sleep.” Cook says Palmer isn’t the sort of guy you take out for a steak dinner as a reward. That’s not why the foreman drives highways at all hours of the night, checking on potential snowfall. “You just pat him on the back and tell him he’s doing a great job,” Cook said. “One of the things that I don’t do is ever second-guess the decisions that our guys make. I don’t have to worry about the decisions

being made by our guys. They never underdo a job. If they’re going to err, they’re going to overdo it. And that’s an error I can live with.” Perhaps your co-workers commiserate and crack jokes about how life feels like Groundhog Day as Mother Nature relentlessly grips the Midwest, her icy mitts trying to crush our will to live. But most of us deal with her from the indoors. Imagine going toeto-toe with that cold-hearted woman every day, on her turf. Talk about the nastiest of Groundhog Days. Here’s a glimpse of that day that won’t die for the Ogle County workhorses. (About the only good news is that it doesn’t open with the prechorus to Sonny and Cher’s greatest hit.) Hit the alarm at 3 a.m. Arrive at work at 3:45. Be on the road at 4. Clear 270-some highway miles’ worth of snow – often the same snow you cleared yesterday (Talk about maddening!) – for the next 12, sometimes 13 hours. Go home. Go to sleep, if you can. Repeat. Wait a second, though. As Cook pointed out when he called me at 7 a.m. Tuesday, his guys don’t just go home, eat dinner and relax until they turn in. They’ve got their own driveways to clear. They’re family men. And, in Boehle’s case, he often has his daughter’s games to catch – actually a sort of silver lining for his 12-hour days wrapping up just in time for him to make tip-off. About 2 hours after chatting with Cook, I was climbing into Boehle’s rig. He told me about the literal process. The keys to keeping morale high. His refusal to use performanceenhancing beverages. I even learned a new word. Pushing snow from one side of the highway to the other when the bank grows too tall? That’s called hogging. Having formerly coached

his daughter, Megan, through eighth-grade hoops, Boehle also opined on what it will take for his beloved Hawks to make a nice postseason run. Visit www.saukvalley. com to hear our conversation in its entirety. Well … not its entirety. I couldn’t post a 70-minute podcast with a straight face. So I pared it down to just a few ticks shy of 40 minutes. I think the audio

does a nice job of bringing you there – “there” being the southwest corner of Ogle County. So rather than painting the scene, I’m spending this column painting the proverbial landscape of the department’s task at hand. Cook gave me some hard numbers – in addition to the sparse time off – to help with that. The crew is burning through about $20,000 worth

of fuel each week, more than a 50 percent increase in a year-over-year comparison. Eighty-hour work weeks are the norm, resulting in about twice the overtime the county is accustomed to paying. That money has to come from somewhere. So when street-paving projects aren’t carried out as quickly as projected, let’s not forget the winter they will have endured, and how much it will have sapped the county funds. This isn’t Boehle’s first rodeo. Far from. He’s been doing this for 23 years, almost 10 of them with the added title of assistant foreman. (Yep. He’s the guy who takes the ball when Palmer can’t go.) He and his wife, Lisa, don’t bother making plans for their February wedding anniversary. And Megan has learned to deal with the fact that Dad will miss her birthday just about every December. But there haven’t been many winters quite like this one. And the long-range forecast calls for a snowy February, so that torrid clip at which these guys have been working likely

won’t end soon. I hopped out of his machine with a lot of fresh perspective and admiration for the work he and his guys do. And these are smart guys. More than half of the crew members have a college degree. Boehle got his from Illinois State in corporate fitness. But he also worked for the county through college, and when his field of study’s opportunities kept calling him toward Chicago, he opted to stay in Ogle County. You know, where his heart is. The Ogle County guys are anything but alone, and they share a strong sense of camaraderie with other counties’ crew members. “We’re all in this together,” Boehle said. “We’re all fighting the same fight.” Let’s make sure we spread the love. Bureau County’s drivers have also had only two days off since Dec. 8, Lee County’s four, and Whiteside County’s five. And all they ask in return is that we harness our road rage while they clear the way for us to get to work. To our families. To our lives.

Former Oregon principal selected as superintendent Former Oregon High School Principal P.J. Caposey was named superintendent of the Meridian School District last week. The school board unanimously approved hiring Caposey Jan. 29 at a special meeting. He will assume his new role on July 1, taking over from Interim Superintendent Bob Willis. “P.J. Caposey is an excellent educator and administrator and will do an outstanding

job for the Meridian School District,” Willis said. “We’re fortunate to have someone with his character and expertise ready to lead the Meridian School District as it moves into a brighter future.” Caposey was named Stillman Valley High School Principal and Assistant Superintendent of the Meridian School District on July 1 last year. He previously served as Oregon High School’s

principal since 2009, leading the school to a host of accolades including being named one of America’s Top High Schools in 2012 by U.S. News, and one of the top 2,000 high schools in America by Newsweek magazine. Caposey also was named an Emerging Leader by the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development as well as being honored by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Reading Matters Reading can help with the winter blues By Mary Gardner, Reading Specialist

Do you and your family need something to relieve cabin fever this winter? There are many places to find good reading suggestions for our children and grandchildren. When the winds blow, temperatures plummet and the snow flies we can spend some time reading to and with our young readers. The Illinois State Library Media Association sponsors reader’s choice awards each year. A reviewed list of about twenty newer books is presented each year. Students from registered schools read a required number of books and vote for their favorite books. Each spring the winning book in each age group is announced at the Illinois Reading Council Reading Conference in Springfield. Complete lists of books can be found at www.islma. org under the Book Awards tab on the left hand side of the

home page. The list for kindergarten through third graders is under the Monarch Award. The Blue Stem Award is for grades three through five. For grades four through eight there is the Rebecca Caudill Award and the Abraham Lincoln Award is for ninth through twelfth graders. Even if your child’s school does not participate in this program the book lists are available and offer excellent suggestions for quality reading. The Illinois Reading Council began a new program last year called Illinois Reads. The website for this program is www. illinoisreads.org. There are lists of recommended books for age levels from kindergarten through adults with emphasis on books by Illinois authors. According to Jesse White, Honorary Chair, Secretary of State and Illinois State Librarian, “The Illinois Reads

concept is to encourage Illinoisans to read books by Illinois authors.” New lists will be presented each year. These lists also offer many possibilities for excellent reading. Many Illinois public libraries participate in both of these programs by purchasing copies of the books on these lists. Visit your local library and ask the staff to show you where they keep the collections. Audio books might be an option for something different. E-books for digital devices are also available. Of course your library’s staff is always more than happy to help you locate something good to read whether it is a book on one of the lists mentioned above or not and in whatever format you choose. Read together or read alone. Find a good book and curl up and read!

Wrestlers finish 7th in Orion By Randy Holland Correspondent The Hawk wrestlers made a fifth and final trip down Interstate 88 to Orion on Jan. 24-25 to compete in the 31st Annual Bob Mitton Invitational Tournament, coming home with four medals. The Hawks finished seventh with 103. With 245 points and six champions, top ranked Dakota won the team title with 245 points. Mercer County was second with 182 points, Sherrard third with 159 points, and ErieProphetstown was fourth, and Macomb fifth. Oregon sent 10 wrestlers to the tournament and eight made it to the medal round, all in the third and fifth place matches. Only two won their final match. Travis Burke was the top finisher, taking third place at 220 pounds. Reaching the third place mat and taking fourth were Dominic Marchetti at 145 pounds, Garrett Rude at 160 pounds, and Jake Diehl at 182 pounds. 138 pounder Corey Grady won on the fifth place mat. Finishing sixth were Zim Granados at 120 pounds, Tyler Blume at 195 pounds, and Michael Stevens at 285 pounds. Also participating in the

tournament were Nathan Clark at 126 pounds and Tyler Staley at 152 pounds. In the opening round, Granados pinned with a chicken wing at 1:47, Clark hooked up a wing at 3:09. Grady survived a late reversal to take an 11-7 win. Marchetti ran the wing with two seconds left in the first period. Staley lost a half nelson at 2:32. Rude took a chicken wing over the front at 1:12, and Burke worked a half nelson in three minutes flat. Diehl, Blume, and Stevens all received byes. In the quarterfinals, Granados kept it close but ended up in a cradle at 5:28 to drop him to the lower bracket. Clark was pinned in a double chicken win at 1:06. Grady faced the eventual champion and was pinned in a wing and a half at 3:53. Marchetti worked the granby for a reversal and two backpoints to complete a 15-0 technical fall at 4:15. In the lower bracket, Staley had the wing, but got rolled and pinned at 1:31 to end his tournament. Rude trailed 9-5 when he hit a throw to the back with ten seconds left in the match, looking like he had won, but the referee waived off the points, sending Rude to the consolation bracket. In a heart stopper, Diehl trailed 5-1 after losing a

takedown with seven seconds left in the match, but reversed to the back with four seconds left to take a 5-3 win. Blume escaped and got a takedown at the buzzer for a 6-2 win. Burke moved to the semifinals with his second pin of the day, a takedown to the back in a half nelson at 3:35. After a scoreless first period, Stevens was turned with a hammer lock at 3:51. In the semifinals, the Hawks did not fare well. Marchetti lost a 9-0 major decision to the eventual champion. Diehl got roughed up in a 16-1 technical fall at 4:24, Blume was saved by the first period buzzer in his semifinal then missed a try for a tilt and went to his back at 3:21. Burke went into the third tied at two. With a minute left, he lost an escape and, forty seconds later, a takedown. A late escape was no help in a 5-3 loss. In the consolation second round, Granados scraped to a pin at 1:48. Grady came from behind with two sets of backpoints to take a 7-3 win. Rude came from behind with an escape and takedown in the second and rode out the third to take a 4-3 win. Clark won by a forfeit and Stevens got a bye. In the consolation quarterfinals, Granados scored a takedown and a reversal to take a 4-0 win.

Clark was down by one when his roll was stopped with 10 seconds left in the match and he was done with a 7-3 loss. Grady cranked it up in the third with a reverse into a cradle for five points and a stack for two more to advance 10-4. Rude had another close one, weathering a third period takedown to hold on for a 4-2 win. Stevens started with a takedown and lost an escape in the first for the only scores in the match, winning 2-1. There were still eight Hawks in contention as the consolation semifinals started, and all would wrestle in the medal round, winners going for third and losers for fifth. Dropping to the fifth place mat were Granados, pinned with four seconds left in the second, Grady losing a 10-0 major decision, Blume losing a five point move in the second in an 8-3 loss, and Stevens pinned in a throw midway through the second. Advancing to the third place match were Marchetti with a half nelson for three points in the third to seal a 12-5 win, and, keeping it close again, Rude with a two point turk in the second period and an escape in the third to advance 3-0. Diehl keeping it exciting again, was trailing 3-1 when he escaped and hit a five point move with six seconds left

in the match to advance 7-4. Burke ran the wing twice in the third for three points and a pin at 4:32. The medal round opened at 138. Grady trailed 6-2 after one but scored a switch and a three point nearfall in the second, going on to take the medal 9-8.

pinned with three seconds left in the first OT. Diehl dropped an 8-0 major decision. Blume was down 4-2 in the third and escaped, but could not come up with the winning takedown, losing 4-3. Burke had two takedowns and an escape before he ran the wing at 4:33 to take the medal. Stevens a takedown in the waning seconds to lose a hard fought 4-2 match.

Lady Hawks fall to Byron in double OT 75-68 Oregon almost beats the stateranked Tigers By Andy Colbert Reporter Let’s hope there will be another Oregon-Byron girls basketball game this year. After Tuesday’s 75-68 double-overtime win by the Lady Tigers, fans left the Blackhawk Center knowing they got their money’s worth and a repeat game would be probably be just as juicy. Not only that, if the two teams meet again, it would be in the finals of the 2A sectional at Aurora Christian. “This was a great high school game,” Byron coach Eric Yerly said. “Going into the regionals, you want a game like this.”

It was a heart-breaking loss for the Lady Hawks and ended a brutal two and half week stretch of games. Kristy Eckardt took away from positives from what she saw. “I like where we’re at going into the post season,” the fourth-year Oregon coach said. “We’ve been clicking a lot more as a team.” Oregon had chances to win at the end of regulation and the first overtime. With five seconds left and the score tied 50-50, Byron lost a rebound out of bounds under the Oregon basket. Calling a timeout, Eckardt drew up a play that did exactly what it was suppose to do – free up an open shooter. Emy Wright fired what looked to be a dead-on 3-pointer at the buzzer only to see it bounce off the rim. In the first overtime, Byron took a 59-55 lead

before Kelsey Pudlas and McCahl Sanders, both off the bench, hit critical baskets. A 3-pointer by Sanders gave the Lady Hawks a 60-59 advantage. “That shot by her was huge,” Eckardt said. “It was a total team effort tonight.” Byron took the lead back, but Wright responded with a long-range 3-pointer to give her team a 63-61 lead with five seconds left. Working the length of the court, the Lady Tigers found freshman Lexi DeVries open and she hit a 19-foot jumper as time expired to send the game into a second overtime. “We hit big shots down the stretch. They hit big shots down the stretch,” Yerly said. Byron finally took control in the second overtime. Ellie Lehne, a 6-footer who led all scorers with 26 points, scored from under the basket to start

the overtime. Then, Nicole Silvers, who had Byron’s first 10 points of the game, found her shooting touch again and made it 68-63. Wright and Sam Lambrigtsen scored for Oregon, but the Lady Tigers put the game away by shooting 7-for-10 from the free-throw line to win 75-68. “When we come over to Oregon, it’s one of the toughest places to play,” said Yerly in reference to the student cheering section that stands right on the sideline. “You have all those guys with camouflage on.” Wright and Lambrigsten scored all the points for Oregon as the two teams were tied 20-20 midway through the second quarter. The Lady Hawks took advantage of several second-quarter steals to go up 29-24. Turn to B2

Oregon picks up a big win Jan. 31 By Patrick Petrosky Sauk Valley Media A big opening quarter proved to be the difference Jan. 31 for Oregon in a 63-55 Big Northern West victory over Rock Falls. Emylyn Wright was key for the Hawks’ (16-9, 6-4 Big Northern) fast start. The junior guard hit a pair of 3s, completed a three-point play, and added another jumper to score 11 of Oregon’s 18 points in the first quarter. “She’s really an outstanding athlete,” Oregon coach Kristy Eckardt said. “She’s not very tall, but she does play a lot bigger than what she is. When she’s hitting shots and getting steals on defense, we know we are in good shape.” Despite Oregon’s hot start, Rock Falls (6-15, 1-7 Big Northern) did all it could to hang around. Junior forward Bailey Schrader scored all eight first-quarter points for the Rockets. A more balanced effort in the second quarter for Rock Falls led to a rally. A pair of free throws from junior guard Bailie Smith pulled the Rockets within two at 23-21 with 3 minutes left in the half. “I don’t think we came out ready,” Schrader said. “But once we realized the pressure that was on us, we started playing hard. I think that was the best game we’ve played so far. We had some girls with specific roles, and they did a great job of covering them.” Oregon’s reliable senior guard Sam Lambrigtsen quickly answered Smith’s basket to calm the storm,

sparking an 8-0 run to close the half. This gave Oregon a 31-21 lead at the break. “I thought we did well,” Wright said. “But we also kind of slowed down and let them get in the game. But I thought we played well against them defensively, and knew that they were going into the post. They fought back, and we were kind of relaxing. We needed to play harder, and that’s what we did to get the lead back where it was.” A three-point play right out of the gate for the Lambrigtsen extended the lead. But once again, the Rockets refused to go down that easily. “We showed some confidence out there shooting the basketball,” Rock Falls coach Craig Mammosser said. “We worked together and played hard, and we knocked down shots and looked confident out there while doing so.” A layup as the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter by Rock Falls senior Danica Fortune pulled her team within five points. A dogfight ensued in the fourth, as teams exchanged small runs. With the Hawks leading 52-48, senior McKaylee Beeter got free and knocked down her only basket of the night. The mid-range jumper swung things back in the Hawks’ favor. Lambrigtsen was a perfect 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final minutes to put the game away.

After a 12-day layoff, the Oregon boys basketball team hung tough with Winnebago Jan. 30 for the first quarter of what eventually turned out to be a 32-point loss, 68-36. Despite being out-sized, out-talented and outexperienced, the Hawks gave the BNC perennial power all they could handle in that first quarter. Sophomore Trevor Otten hit a pair of long-range jumpers and Jesse McKinley and Billy Heeg also chipped in with points for Oregon. “Oregon had a lot of energy and were playing at home,” Winnebago coach Joe Murphy said. “We were awfully slow in getting started. It took us awhile to take away the passing lanes from them.” “We came with intensity and rotated well in the zone,” Oregon coach Quinn Virgil said. “After that first quarter, I could see us getting winded. It hurt not playing for so long.” Behind Dalton Meinke and Ryan Swigart, the Indians went on a 42-14 tear in the second and third quarters. Swigart really put an exclamation on the win with a perfectly executed alley oop pass to Isaiah Yanni for a dunk. The play even resulted in a few cheers from the Oregon student section. “I wouldn’t be shocked to see Winnebago (14-4, 5-1) downstate again,” Virgil said. “When they get it rolling,

they are something to see.” “Meinke and Swigart have been carrying us all year, especially in the big games,” Murphy said. McKinley, who led Oregon (4-15, 0-6) with 18 points, was the gist of Oregon’s offense in the second and third quarters, literally carrying the team on his shoulders with some crowd-pleasing driving layups. Skylar Short added six second-half points. “Oregon’s problem is they don’t shoot well and it was hard for them to keep up with us,” Murphy said. “The biggest thing that I saw tonight was that they kept playing hard.” Donovan Roby hit a nice 3-pointer to start the fourth quarter for Oregon and the Hawks managed to only lose that stanza 12-11. Similar to the Winnebago game, Oregon gave Lutheran all they could handle in the first quarter Feb. 1 before losing 68-40. More specifically, the hot hand of sophomore Trevor Otten paced the Hawks to a 14-13 lead. Otten hit four 3-point shots in a row before Lutheran coach Tom Guse called a timeout. “He was getting lose on a triple screen,” said Guse, who replaced Joe Kellen and put back-up guard Tim Koehler on Otten. “We wanted to talk to Joe about what needed to be done to stop him.” With Koehler bird-dogging Otten’s every move, Otten

Lady Hawks lose 62-46 to Sterling

Untimely fouls and cold shooting helped propel Sterling past Oregon’s Lady Hawks in a non-conference battle on a snowy Saturday in Sterling. Oregon fell to 62-46 after being outscored by the Golden Warriors 36-18 in the second half Feb. 1. The score at the end of two quarters was 28-26 Oregon. Samantha Lambrigtsen led Oregon with 24 points, but fouled out early in the fourth quarter. Emy Wright followed with 14 points, but drew her fifth foul later in the final period. McKaylee Beeter, Madeline Sanders, Kimmie Janke, and Kelsey Pudlas each had a basket for Oregon. Sterling had four players reach double figures with Bauer leading the way with 19 followed by Turrock with 18, Harris with 12, and Oregon’s McKaylee Beeter, left, ties up Rock Falls’ Dallas Clevenger for a jump ball Turn to B2 Sandoval with 11. during conference action Jan. 31.

She was followed by Abigail Scheidecker with a 602 series (175,225,202) and Alyson Scheidecker with a 568 series (257,163,148). The win was Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14th of the season, setting an all-

time program high mark in victories (previous boys - 13 or girls - nine) and raised the NIBC season record to 11-1 and the Big Northern record to 5-1, both good enough for second place in each conference. The JV team also won, wrapping up second place in the NIBC JV conference and was led by Emily Corbin with a season high 230 game in route to a 449 series. On Jan. 31, the team raised its season record to 13-2, 10-1 NIBC with a 2791-2571 victory over Byron at Town & Country Lanes, Mt Morris.

Oregon girls host Rock Falls on Saturday From B1 Lambrigtsen led all scorers with 29 points followed by Wright with 19 points, Madeline Sanders with six, McCahl Sanders with

three, and McKaylee Beeter, Kimmie Janke, and Kelsey Pudlas with two each. Oregon plays Rock Falls again on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. in Oregon in a

rescheduled game. The night will also honor the nine seniors in the girls basketball program. There is only the varsity game.

Byron edges Oregon in double OT From B1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we got rolling in the second quarter, we kept it going,â&#x20AC;? Eckardt said. The Lady Hawks got a boost at the end of the quarter, as Lambrigtsen was fouled in the act of shooting from beyond the 3-point line.

While the Byron coaching staff protested the foul, Lambrigtsen made all three shots for a 32-26 lead. With Byron keying on Wright and Lambrigtsen, it was Pudlas and Megan Boehle picking up the slack. The pair combined for 10

straight points at the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth quarter for a 44-42 lead. The two teams traded baskets the rest of the way in regulation. Oregon did have a 50-48 lead when Lehne scored to tie the game up.

The Oregon Hawk wrestlers got a good old thrashing at the hands of the Byron Tigers in Byron on Jan. 29, the meet was delayed a day due to the weather. The Hawks had to give up eight forfeits, lost three matches by falls, one major decision, and one decision. The lone Oregon win came in the last match of the night. In a junior varsity meet against the Tigers, the young Hawks prevailed 42-18. Oregon rebounded on Jan. 30 to take a 45-24 win over Fulton and a 48-6 win over Ashton-Franklin-Center to wrap up the regular season. The Byron meet got off to a bad start when 170-pound John Ghibellini stumbled on an escape attempt and fell to his back and was pinned in 38 seconds. The Hawks forfeited 182. Tyler Blume was down by two when he tried a roll in the third period and was stopped on his back at 5:18. Travis Burke lost a five point throw midway through the third period in a tough match against fifth ranked Ross Sealby, and he ended up losing an 11-2 major. At heavyweight against Nathan Getzelman, Michael Stevens was down two points when he was reversed to his back at 2:22. Oregon was in a 27-0 hole and it would get worse with forfeits from 106 all the way to 132, adding 30 points to the Byron total. At 138, Corey Grady faced twelfth ranked Josh Larson and lost a tough 3-0 decision on a first period takedown and third period escape. Two

more forfeits followed before Garrett Rude finally got Oregon on the board with a wing over the front at 1:28. In the JV meet, Oregon opened with a forfeit to Caleb Mennen at 170 followed by Tyler Burke who led 10-2 when he ran a wing at 5:08. At 195 Anthony Marchetti took a forfeit and it was a double forfeit at 220. David Labash went 285 and ran a wing at 1:12. 106 and 113 were double forfeits and Oregon forfeited 120. At 126 Nathan Clark had a takedown to the back in a 13-9 win. At 132, Skylar Carlson was down 7-4 in the third when he escaped and tossed his opponent to his back to take a 10-8 win. Oregon forfeited 138. At 145, Conner Hopkins got caught in a cradle twice, the second time for a pin at 3:50. The meet ended with forfeits to Sawyer Foss and Brayton Finch. In Ashton, the Hawks watched the Steamers defeat AFC 43-24 before they took the mat against Fulton. Devin DeHaan started with a 5-1 win in a JV match. The varsity started with Clark on the mat at 132, pinned with the crook at 3:42. With four sets of backpoints, Grady rolled up a 16-0 technical fall at 3:38. Hopkins took the varsity duty at 145 and scored the first takedown, but was turned with the half nelson at 4:22. Foss also got varsity action at 152, working the butcher for two points in a 6-5 win. Rude frustrated his opponent, picking up two penalty points before he scraped to a pin at 5:03 to give Oregon their first lead. At 170, Ghibellini shucked

for the first takedown then countered into a cradle at one minute flat. At 182 Tyler Burke got the varsity call and made it count, running a wing at 2:47. Blume had three takedowns in a 13-3 major decision at 195. After a forfeit to Travis Burke at 220, Stevens scored a takedown with 40 seconds left in the 285 pound match to win 5-0. A string of forfeits followed, the Hawks giving up six points at 106 and 120, while 113 was a double forfeit. The meet ended with a pin by Carlson, the butcher at the first period buzzer. Against AFC, Dylan Dixon got an exhibition match. He had an early lead but was stacked over the front at 5:08. The varsity meet opened with a double forfeit at 132 and, on the mat at 138 with Grady reversing into a stack at 2:41. Dominic Marchetti also used the stack for a fall, hitting it at 2:21. Foss lost a counter and was put in a cradle in 42 seconds to give the Raiders their only points. Rude got the six back with a wing at 1:27 and Shane Brogan added six more with a wing at 3:01 in the170 pound match. At 182, Tyler Burke scored a takedown to the back and posted an arm for a fall at 3:06. Blume worked his way around for a takedown and ran the wing at 1:36. Forfeits to Travis Burke and Stevens at 220 and 285, followed by double forfeits at 106,113, and 120 set up Carlson for the final match. The Oregon freshman turned with a chicken wing at 5:02 to wrap up the dual meet season.

Hawks faced tough team From B1 missed his next five shots and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score again until the third quarter. By then, the Crusaders had a 38-20 lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play all year, probably better than the 2012 team that got third in the state,â&#x20AC;? Oregon coach Quinn Virgil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have four kids that can score, plus plenty of

other talent.â&#x20AC;? Thomas Kopelman, Nate Wieting, Kendall Lawson and Kellen scored in double figures for the Crusaders. Nearly half of Lutheranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s points were from 3-pointers. The visitors also put the wraps on Jesse McKinley, holding him scoreless in the first half. McKinley did finish with eight points, two on a slam dunk with four

minutes left in the game, one of the few highlights for the Hawks. Otten had 18 points, all on 3-pointers. Billy Heeg added six and Skylar Short and Donovan Roby four. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These two games were great tests for us and get us ready for the post-season,â&#x20AC;? Virgil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to focus on what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and play our type of basketball.â&#x20AC;?

Sports Column Negativity is damaging sports experience By Andy Colbert Reporter Part II of a series. Last week, I was sitting near a basketball coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife who was subjected by derogatory comments made by a fan of an opposing team. The comments were directed at the players on her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. The week before, a basketball/volleyball official told me that the more fans yell at him; the more it adversely affects him. He said this is especially true for someone getting started in officiating. Being subjected to an onslaught of negative comments certainly is a

major factor in the high turnover rate of first-year IHSA refs. Our words have the potential to give life. We can either tear people down or build them up with what comes out of our mouths. Thus, words have real power and can break a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit. I could relate example after example of people being hurt by the spoken word and how this behavior has become endemic in high school sports. Maybe the fans that insist on berating others were never exposed to much in the way of positive words and are a product of their environment. Throw in the emotional nature of sports and a potential powder keg is waiting to explode. What can be done to diffuse all the negativity permeating sporting arenas?

For starters, how about being more welcoming to opposing fans. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be neat to see the home team have a few people in the entryway shaking hands and greeting the visitors? We do that in our homes, so why not at a high school gym or football stadium. Let the visitors know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sincerely glad they are here and together weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share a bond of cheering on our respective teams. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not enemies, but friendly rivals. We can grow from that simple act of kindness and just maybe change the mindset of a visitor. This will probably never happen, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d even love to seat fans from both sides sit together instead of apart. What a great way to develop relationships, as is commonly done at sports like cross country and golf where

there are no bleachers. What about student cheering sections in gymnasiums? Are we ensuring their chants and antics are not out of hand? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take this one step further. How about stirring up the creative juices of the students to come up with chants/bleacher skits that are good-natured and witty, but not malicious in their intent. That is an art in itself and if directed in a positive manner could provide both support for your team and earn the respect of visiting fans. This is somewhat radical, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll throw it out anyway. Say someone from the opposing team makes an atheistically pleasing play; what would be wrong with applauding him/her for it? A fan of a particular sport surely can appreciate athletic achievement by both sides and no, that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be

considered a treacherous act. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the toughest one of all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; say a coach or referee makes a decision you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with. And, to compound matters, what if it happens at a critical juncture of the game? As spectators, are we able to pause when agitated and remind ourselves we are not running the show? Does our tolerance level allow us to accept the outcome of these decisions, especially if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go the way we want? Though that may go against our human nature, perhaps try to go one game without becoming uncorked. If you can pull it off, eventually your reward could be a reduction of fear, anger, self-pity, worry, etc. Subsequently, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have an extra boost of energy by not wearing yourself out

Manage weeds without chemicals Rock River Wild Ones will hold a program titled “Managing Weeds Without Using Chemicals” on Thursday, Feb. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Rock Valley College/Woodward Technology Center, 3301 N. Mulford Rd., Rockford. Participants should note that this is a change in location for the meeting. The program will

be presented by Mary Blackmore, who has been involved in various aspects of natural areas management in northwestern Illinois for more than 30 years. Participants will learn the difference between pesticides and herbicides, and how to manage native landscaping in a non-harmful way. Blackmore will discuss

managing natural areas without using pesticides, which presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities that need planning, hard work and determination. During her career, Blackmore has worked as a volunteer for several local non-profit organizations, focusing on herbicide-free methods and volunteer recruitment and retention.

She is currently the stewardship volunteer coordinator at two preserves in Ogle County which are owned and managed by the Northwest Illinois Audubon Society. The program is free, and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. New members are welcome. For more information call 815-627-0344.

Yield is one aspect of sweet corn While grain yield is economically important in field corn production, there are other metrics more important in sweet corn grown for processing, said Marty Williams, a USDAARS ecologist and University of Illinois crop sciences researcher. In a study recently published in Field Crops Research, Williams questioned whether the crop yield responses that have been previously reported in sweet corn research are actually helpful to the industry. “What has been done in the past is analogous to predicting someone’s height based on their shoe size, as opposed to actually measuring their height,” Williams said. After collecting and studying sweet corn data representing 31 hybrids across 22 locations in Illinois over an 8-year period, Williams said he sees a disconnect in what researchers are measuring in the field and what processors and seed companies need to know in order to make improved production decisions. In other words, Williams said researchers need to start speaking the same language as the sweet corn industry. Williams explained that the two variables that affect

processor decisions most include recovery (percentage of kernels that can be canned or bagged from the green-ear mass) and case production (cases per acre of processed kernels). However, he added that nearly all historic and recent field research in processing sweet corn reports neither of these variables, regardless of whether the studies pertained to plant pathology, fertility management, pest control, or sweet corn breeding and genetics. “Ear number or greenear mass are often the only crop responses reported in research on field productivity of processing sweet corn. “Sometimes, other crop responses are reported, including plant traits such as height or canopy density, or ear traits such as ear length or ear width,” he said. In his study, Williams looked for relationships between processor variables and 17 crop traits (five plant traits, eight ear traits, and four yield traits). He determined that none of the crop traits predicted recovery. “Recovery is something that has to be measured directly. Currently, there’s no way to predict it,” he explained. When comparing the

variability of the estimates in case production based on traits such as green-ear mass, husked-ear mass, and ear number, he determined that fresh kernel mass also was a far superior predictor of case production. “Essentially, the more a measured yield response physically resembled a case of sweet corn, the more precise and accurate the estimate of case production,” he reported. The challenge in getting the necessary data is the costs associated with the equipment and labor, according to Williams. In order to collect information on fresh kernel mass, Williams and his team designed and built a portable, “mini-processing plant” that they use in the field at harvest to husk ears and cut fresh kernels. “At the moment there isn’t a viable alternative that’s less expensive,” he said. “Does the research community continue to report mediocre data, or do we invest in an approach that gives the sweet corn industry exactly what it needs to make use of our research?” Another obstacle is the narrow window of time when sweet corn is harvested, usually by hand, for research. Though field corn for

grain production is harvested at physiological maturity, sweet corn is harvested at the R3 stage (milk stage), while kernel moisture is at approximately 72 to 76 percent. “When sweet corn is ripe, waiting is not an option,” Williams explained. A change in the way sweet corn research is done will have an impact on how processors, growers, and seed companies make decisions in the future, according to the researcher. “Applied research aimed at improving crop productivity is predicated on the ability to accurately measure important crop responses, such as yield. For processing sweet corn, the most important responses include recovery and case production,” he said. “Those of us in the research community can’t expect the sweet corn industry to adopt our research-based findings when we’re failing to measure what’s truly important.” “Few crop traits accurately predict variables important to productivity of processing sweet corn,” is published in the February, 2014 issue of Field Crop Research and can be accessed online at http://www.sciencedirect. com/science/article/pii/ S0378429013004073.

IEMA is recognizing the seismic risks in Illinois During the winter of 1811-12, some of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in North America rocked the Central U.S., including parts of southern Illinois. The series of earthquakes were each estimated to be around magnitude 8.0, strong enough to ring church bells 1,000 miles away in Boston. While the affected area was largely rural at the time, a similar earthquake today would cause widespread devastation throughout the region. Recognizing this seismic risk, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency

(IEMA) today announced it will promote earthquake preparedness throughout February as part of its 2014 preparedness campaign. “While it comes as a surprise to many people, Illinois has a very real risk for a major earthquake” said IEMA Director Jonathon Monken. “We’re working to increase awareness of the earthquake potential in Illinois, as well as how people can protect themselves and reduce damage to their homes.” Monken said people need to remember to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” when the feel the ground shaking.

The phrase prompts people to “Drop” down to the floor, take “Cover” under a sturdy desk, table, or other furniture, and “Hold On” to the furniture item and be prepared to move with it until the shaking ends. IEMA has developed interactive tools that identify earthquake hazards in homes and school hazard hunts are available on the Ready Illinois website at www.Ready. Illinois.gov. The website also contains earthquake preparedness tips and information about the New Madrid and Wabash Valley seismic zones that impact Illinois.

In observation of American Heart Month, the Ogle County Extension office is presenting a program titled Meals for a Healthy Heart on Thursdays, March 13 and 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ogle County Extension office located at 421 W. Pines Road in Oregon. University of Illinois Extension nutrition and wellness educator, Marilyn Csernus, MS, RD will present the series, to help participants learn how to decrease risk factors for cardiovascular disease. It is designed for anyone interested in preventing or managing heart disease. Eating a heart healthy diet

and staying physically active can decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. In each session, participants receive recipes, watch cooking demonstrations, taste foods, and learn about proper diet and physical activity to better care for their health. The Meals for a Healthy Heart program aims to improve overall wellbeing and complement the recommendations of health care providers. One in every four deaths in the United States is attributed to heart disease or stroke, making cardiovascular disease the leading cause of death in this country.

According to the Center for Disease Control someone in the U.S. has a heart attack every 34 seconds and each minute someone dies from a heart-related event. Although these statistics are alarming, lifestyle measures can play a significant role in improving health and decreasing risk for cardiovascular disease. Certain risk factors for cardiovascular disease are not modifiable. Having a family history of heart disease and age are not risk factors individuals have control over. On the other hand, risk factors which people have some control of include

cholesterol levels, blood pressure, weight, physical activity level, diabetes control and tobacco use. Knowing the numbers for cholesterol, blood pressure and weight are important indicators for risk of future heart disease. These numbers are affected by everyday habits such as food choices and physical activity habits. The fee for the two session program is $15 per person. For more information visit University of Illinois Extension website at web. extension.illinois.edu/bdo or call the Ogle County Extension office at 815-7322191.
