Mt. Morris Estates owner requests annexation By Chris Johnson Reporter The owner of the Mt. Morris Estates asked Tuesday to be annexed into the village if their sewer rates are not reduced. Ken Hauck runs the mobile home park just east of the village limits. “You have a higher rate outside the village limits and this makes sense,� he said. “We would like to talk about being annexed into

the village. We would be agreeable to this.� Currently 107 units in the complex are hooked up to village wastewater. Onsite wells provide fresh water to these units. Hauck said the old rate for sewer hookup is approximately $80 per unit per month and under the proposed rates the cost would increase to $140 per month. He said a surcharge of 25 percent over what village residents would be a fair

price for using the wastewater service. “I am finding out what we can do. There is always an option,� said Hauck. He said the high sewer rates could make the Mt. Morris Estates obsolete due to pricing residents out of the community. “How many are on septics?� asked trustee Don Sorensen. Currently 60 units are using septic systems and there are 25 empty lots.

“We need to get together and talk,� said Sorensen. One point of discussion will be the costs to upgrade the lift station on that side of the village. “It needs to be upgraded,� he said. Village engineer Corey Buck said a 2010 estimate to fix the lift station and main was $700,000. Hauck said the 300 people in his community are part of Mt. Morris even though they are not village residents.

Morris Historical Museum. Fountain plans will be shared with the community as they progress. A hole was bored for a water line in 2013 from the Community Gymnasium to the Campus Band Shell. Water will now be available as needed for the July 4th and other campus food service events. Another hole will be bored later to supply water and electricity from the band shell area to the fountain. In addition, the Class of 1967 donated a 19th century style park bench for the campus. It was placed in a shaded area near the fountain. The fountain was filled with green plants, marigolds and other flowers by local gardeners this past summer. The Nymph is the fourth statue for the proposed Mt. Morris ‘Tour of Bronze’. Adams sculpted and cast the “Spirit of Compassion� at Pinecrest Grove. Seagraves sculpted the “Mounder�, cast by Adams in 2009. It stands in Mounder Park next to the village hall.

We will be getting back to you.� In other business the board approved a $600,000 proposal to Sullivan’s Foods. This offer is to pay Sullivan’s $50,000 per year for 12 years. “This is a proposal only,� said trustee Mary Francis. “It needs to be approved by Sullivan’s and details need to be worked out.�

Sculpture cast for historic fountain Members of the Mt. Morris Work Group, Tourism Committee, and friends watched the casting of sculptor David Seagrave’s “Nymph� statue on March 21 at the inBronze Foundry. The statue was cast by Jeff Adams, sculptor and owner of the inBronze Studio and Foundry, Mt. Morris. The statue will adorn the top of the century old Price Fountain on the southeast corner of the Mt. Morris Campus. The fountain was donated to the “Mt. Morris Village Park� by Dr. A.W. Price, a local veterinarian. The statue component of the fountain has been missing for years. Several old pictures indicate it was either a nymph or cupid-like figure. Jeff Adams and the Work Group will further assess the fountain base. The old cement structure is cracked and fragmented. One option is to take a mold of the base and cast it in bronze. The weather and time worn original base can then be safely stored in the Mt.

“They are part of Mt. Morris,� said trustee Jon Murray. “It is too bad there is not a bike path to town.� The village and Hauck have been negotiating a new contract for wastewater service after the village installed a meter to measure the flow. This meter allowed village officials to have numbers to use while negotiating. “We understand what you are going through,� said trustee Tim Harvey. “We now

be donated for the Campus Fountain Fund at the village hall, or mail a check to the Village Clerk at the Mt. Morris Village Hall, 105 W. Lincoln St., Mt. Morris IL 61054. Memorials to the fountain are also welcome. For more information call Sally Gray at 815-734-4997.

Reopening draws 800 to Maxson’s restaurant Popular Oregon landmark is located on Ill. 2 By Vinde Wells Editor An estimated 800 people turned out for the grand reopening last weekend at a popular Oregon restaurant. “We were very happy with the turnout,� said Nancy Semmerling co-owner of Maxson’s Riverside Restaurant on Ill. 2 just north of Oregon. “We had a big response of Saturday — about 300 people, and about 500 on Sunday.� After being closed for five months, the restaurant, an Oregon landmark for more than 60 years, held a “soft

opening� March 22 for just Oregon residents and then opened to the general public for Sunday brunch on March 23. Semmerling and her husband Frank, Riverwoods, purchased the restaurant and its paddlewheel riverboat in early February from Rich Wiesner, Oregon, who retired Oct. 31. The Semmerlings’ daughter and son-inlaw, Christie and Daniel Wiegman, both professional chefs, are running the restaurant. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, with a buffet available at lunchtime. Sunday brunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Luncheon cruises on the Pride of Oregon riverboat

will also be offered on Sunday as soon as weather permits, Semmerling said. The paddle-wheeler was built in Palatka, Fla., in the late 1980s. The restaurant’s original owner John Maxson and his family opened the restaurant in 1952 and operated it until they sold it to John and Peter Tsioles in 1978. Rose Jones purchased the restaurant from the Tsioles brothers in 1985. She added the riverboat, originally called the Rose of the Rock, four years later. Wiesner bought it from Jones’ heirs. A fire destroyed the original restaurant building Oregon residents were treated to a “soft opening� at Maxson’s restaurant on March on March 27, 1993, but it 22. Residents received an invitation in the mail and were treated with free food and was rebuilt and reopened in appetizers. The restaurant opened to the general public the next day. the summer of 1994.

Special meeting not held after all By Vinde Wells Editor A special Ogle County Board meeting announced last week didn’t happen after all. At the regular meeting on March 19, board member Ron Colson, Mt. Morris, called for the special meeting under Rule 13 to discuss the location of the proposed sheriff’s administration building. Rule 13 allows eight board members to call for a special meeting. Colson said eight members had agreed to the meeting, but he declined to identify them, saying they would be listed on the meeting agenda. Colson has opposed the new sheriff’s administration

building being located on the present site at 103 Jefferson St., Oregon. He favors building it on the property the county owns on Sixth Street across from the judicial center. Colson first voiced his concern over the location at the Jan. 21 board meeting because he said the property lies within the area designated for a Riverfront District in the City of Oregon’s Comprehensive Plan. He said the property is a key part of planned development to promote tourism in the city, which would also financially benefit the county. He asked for the matter to be on the Feb. 18 meeting agenda. However, the Executive Committee, which decides what goes on the

agenda, voted 6-0 against that. Members of the Executive Committee are board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, John O’Brien and Greg Sparrow, both of Rochelle, John Finfrock, Mt. Morris, Don Griffin, Oregon, and Pat Nordman, Oregon. Board member Bill Welty, also a committee member, did not attend that meeting. Gouker reminded Colson March 19 that a special meeting could cost as much as $1,200 if all 24 board members attend. Board members are paid $50 each for special meetings. Colson acknowledged the cost, but said he called the special meeting after the matter had been “blocked� from getting on the regular

agenda. Gouker, however, disagreed. “It wasn’t blocked. It’s been discussed in committee,� he said. “We’re moving forward [with the building].� Colson said Monday afternoon that he decided not to call for the meeting after all because too many board members could not attend. “There were too many schedule conflicts,� he said. Gouker sent out an email Monday evening to county board members and officials, as well as media, notifying them that the special meeting would not be held after all. The email said Colson had filed neither a request nor an agenda for the special meeting with the county clerk by the March 21 deadline.

HCC board increases tuition Submitted by Highland Community College During its March 18 regular meeting, the Highland Community College Board of Trustees approved a $3 per credit hour tuition increase for the fall 2014 semester, and another $2 per credit hour effective for the spring of 2015, if needed. The spring 2015 increase would require board action and would be determined prior to registration for the spring 2015 semester. The board approved the second reading of a recommendation to increase tuition by amending the original motion of an increase of $5 per credit hour. In-district tuition will increase from $115 per credit hour to $118 per credit hour for fall 2014 and from $118 to $120 per credit hour in spring of 2015 upon further board approval. The senior citizen rate will

increase from $86 to $89 per credit hour for the fall 2014 semester, and if needed, to $90 for the spring of 2015. Trustees moved forward on the initiative primarily due to decreased state and local revenue. Traditionally, the three main components of the college’s operating budget are state unrestricted grants, property taxes, and tuition and fees, funded by an equal share of these three sources. With state funding now contributing only 13 percent to the HCC operating fund, Vice President of Administrative Services Jill Janssen explained that the increase of $3 per credit hour would help offset reductions in state funding and local property values. For FY14, Highland is expecting local property taxes to contribute 45 percent, with the remaining 38 percent of revenue generated from tuition and fees. The remaining four percent comes from other

sources. “The college has experienced declining revenue from the state in recent years, amounting to a reduction of about $700,000 over the course of the last five fiscal years,� said Janssen. “Highland aims to maintain the overall tax rate at a consistent level from yearto-year, however this effort to maintain a consistent tax rate now results in decreased local tax revenue because of lower property values in the district.� Janssen also said that from FY13 to budgeted FY14, expenses are expected to grow only about one percent. The college has taken steps to control costs through a reduction in contractual services, capital equipment, employee travel and training, and utilities, as well as renegotiation of certain employee benefits.

Guest author at historical society The public is invited to hear Chicago author Stan “Tex� Banash discuss his third book, “Roadside History of Illinois,� on Saturday, April 12 at 2 p.m. The presentation will be at the Ogle County Historical Society, 111 N. Sixth St., Oregon. Banash will explain the book’s seven regions, several interesting trip segments, describe some of his research, and then point out a number of significant happenings about Illinois history that shaped the state. The book begins with the Ice Age and carries readers to the present along old U.S. highways, state roadways and county roads. It leads to the people, places and events that contributed to the state’s development. It is the first book on Illinois history in more than

30 years and has been praised by former U.S. Sen. Adlai E. Stevenson III and Wayne C. Temple, Chief Deputy Director of the Illinois State Archives. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and inscription following the talk. Active in his local community, Banash is a six-term past president of a local chamber of commerce and chaired a local zoning advisory board for 19 years. He also operated his own home-based public relations firm for more than 30 years. The author graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and obtained a Master of Arts degree in Urban Studies from Roosevelt University. His two earlier books were “Best of Dee Brown’s West� and “Dee Brown’s Civil War

Waste department offers grants The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department is announcing that the next round of Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant applications are due by Monday, April 7. The grants of up to $2,000 are available to Ogle County businesses, schools, churches and non-profit organizations wishing to establish or improve on waste reduction and recycling programs and services. Applicants must provide a 20 percent match of the total project cost. The application for the grants is simple and flexible. Businesses could use grant funds to help purchase waste

reduction and recycling materials and equipment such as collection bins, carts, balers and storage containers. Equipment needed to switch from disposable packaging to reusable packaging for products and supplies could also be considered. Municipalities seeking to improve curbside or multi-family recycling are encouraged to apply. A recent grant recipient was Serenity Hospice and Home Foundation for equipment needed to store, bale and recycle excess clothing that cannot be sold at their Angel Treasures store in the amount of $2,000. Meridian School District

Events & Entertainment

received a grant in the amount of $1,539 for the purchase of recycling containers for the elementary schools. Applicants are encouraged to find innovative ways to reduce the amount of waste that is generated and increase what is recycled. The grants may not be used to pay for ongoing expenses such as staffing, collection and hauling costs. Priority will be given to new applicants. All applications will be reviewed by the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department and the Ogle County Board Solid Waste Committee. Grants will be evaluated

based on the following criteria: management ability, project quality, project impact, realistic goals and expectations, accuracy of application, education potential, use of recycled content products when available, potential for waste stream diversion, and future continuity of project. Applications may be submitted by April 7, July 5, or October 4, as long as grant funds are available. For more information or to request an application, please contact the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department at 815-732-4020, or visit www.oglecounty.org.

Winter of 2014 has taken a toll on northern evergreens This winter has sure taken a toll on the evergreens in the northern Illinois area. Why did this happen? “Since evergreens retain their leaves throughout the winter, they are susceptible to a variety of winter related problems,� said University of Illinois Extension Horticulture Educator

Candice Miller. “Since these leaves are still living they need to be able to use and uptake water from the soil.� A good portion of the browning that is seen on evergreens is caused by winter burn or dessication. This happens when cold winter winds blow past

evergreens and pull moisture out of the leaves at a more rapid rate than the plant can replace the moisture. If the ground is frozen and the plant cannot uptake enough water, the leaves then brown as a result. This typically shows up on the windward, sun exposed side of the plant and is not uniformly spaced around the plant. This can happen on young as well as old trees and shrubs. The other possible cause of browning on evergreens could be from salt spray.

This browning can occur on evergreens that are close to sidewalks and roadways where de-icing salt may have been splashed on the plant. Since salt draws water from plant tissue, this salt spray can cause winter burn in evergreens. This again will appear on only the side of the tree closest to the sidewalk or street. “Luckily, many times an evergreen can overcome this damage if it just occurs on a portion of the plant,� notes Miller. “One way to verify if your plant is still viable and

living, is to check and see if the branches and buds are still alive.� Scratch the bark of a young branch that has browning and check to see if the inside is green and living,

or if it is brown and dried out. If the branch is still green and living, there is a good chance that the branch will continue to grow and overcome that needle loss. CALL US FOR A FREE CONSULTATION!

Tow Fund handling a topic again for Ogle board By Vinde Wells Editor

into question again last week at the Ogle County Board meeting. The handling of the County board member Pat sheriff’s Tow Fund came Saunders, Polo, asked March

19 if the sheriff’s Tow Fund expenditures and receipts are being managed yet by the county treasurer. Sheriff Michael Harn, who

did not attend the meeting, has come under fire for some Tow Fund expenditures. In February, the board limited his control over the fund. Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said at that meeting that in the future the fund would be handled by the treasurer rather than the sheriff. “Is the Tow Fund going through the county treasurer’s office now?� Saunders asked last week. Treasurer John Coffman replied that he has not yet

received any records from Harn. “The sheriff is working on it,� Gouker said. “He’s been busy. His father-in-law has been in the hospital.� Harn was also seeking the Republican nomination for sheriff in the March 18 primary election, but was defeated by challenger Brian VanVickle, Rochelle. Petrizzo asked when concealed carry signs will be posted at all county buildings. So far, he said, he has seen them only at the judicial

center. Gouker said Harn, who is in charge of county properties, is working on getting the signs up. McKinney said he believes county department heads should not be allowed to accept free vehicles without the county board’s approval. He said three of the donated vehicles are costing the county $450 per year for insurance. “They may be free but they cost us money,� McKinney said.

Dear Editor, What is a volunteer? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines volunteer as a person who does work without getting paid to do it. Volunteer is a noun but I contend that volunteer is actually a verb. A word that expresses an action, an occurrence, or a state of being. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is many things, a mentor, a vision of hope for the hopeless, a caring and kind person in a world of chaos and confusion. A CASA volunteer does do work without getting paid, but that does not describe the actions they take on behalf of the abused and neglected children in our communities. To me a CASA volunteer is hero who gives a voice to the voiceless children in the court system. Judges appoint CASA volunteers to speak for the best interest of children removed from their homes as a result of abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers provide judges with essential insights into critical information about children in the foster care system allowing judges to make more informed decisions about the future for these children. Each year CASA volunteers

Barnes thinks businesses should not post signs Dear Editor, With the new concealed carry law any business may post a sign stating “no firearms allowed�. You have that right, but maybe you should think about it before posting the sign. Why you ask? By posting that sign “no firearms allowed� you are telling every one that there are no guns in this business. The law abiding citizen, who has been trained and granted a permit to carry a firearm, will abide by the sign. But do you really think the gang-banger who pays no attention to signs or our laws is going to leave his gun in the car? You are telling the gangbanger that they don’t have to worry about anyone having a

If you post the sign you are guaranteeing that the evil people will have disarmed and defenseless victims in this business. As a former business man and business owner I would rather have a trained and licensed gun owner in my place, that a gang-banger who has had no training and probably should not have a gun. Remember these gun free zones—Washington Naval Yard, Aurora, Colo. Theater, the schools, even some shopping malls, all gun free zones, but that did not stop the weirdo from doing his killing. What stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Think about this before you post the sign—no firearms allowed. Jim Barnes Oregon

Oregon-Mt. Morris Beat

Bidding process draws questions from board By Vinde Wells Editor Ogle County Board members questioned the bidding process last week for county-funded cremations. Board member Bruce McKinney, Rochelle, asked March 19 why the bidding proposal submitted by Coroner Louis Finch for indigent cremation services was limited to only Ogle County funeral homes. “I hate to see Ogle County businesses lose money,� he said, suggesting that the bidding should be opened to any funeral home.

However, board member Lee Meyers, Byron, said that in the past the county board has favored awarding contracts to businesses located within the county when at all possible. Finch, who owns and operates a funeral home and crematory with his family in Mt. Morris, had requested bidding the cremations for indigent persons on an annual basis rather than an individual basis. The board approved the measure. Finch said that last year the county paid for five or six cremations for deceased individuals without the

means to pay. Board member Pat Saunders, Polo, asked how many crematories are in Ogle County. Finch said his family’s is the only one. However, he said, several are located in surrounding counties. “Just because an Ogle County funeral home gets the bid doesn’t mean they will use my facility,� he said Tuesday. Board member Dick Petrizzo, Davis Junction, suggested that all bids should go to the county clerk to be opened at the same time.

Oregon-Mt. Morris Beat

Oregon Republican Reporter, Mt. Morris Times, Thursday, March 27, 2014, Page A11

www.oglecountynews.com

Band extravaganza included alumni The 20th Annual Band Extravaganza added a dash of seasoning for its 2014 audience last week—28 to be exact. That’s the approximate number of alumni from Oregon and Mt. Morris schools who brought their instruments to the Blackhawk Center and played Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy� shoulder to shoulder with students grades 5 through 12 on March 18. Leona Nelson, Mt. Morris, started the evening off when she stepped in as guest director to open the show. “It’s a great honor I have tonight to lead the ‘Star Spangled Banner’. I feel like I just won the gold medal at the Olympics,� said Nelson, whose children and grandchildren have all been band students. She thanked the school district’s band directors, Miles Beske and Andy Eckardt, for bestowing her the honor of guest director. “I also want to thank all you parents and grandparents that are here tonight and make sure that these wonderful young people have the opportunity to experience music,� she said. “Music is that universal language. A sharp and a flat and a middle C will be the same all over the world. And the experiences and the disciplines these kids have learned here at Oregon High School will stay with them their whole life. What a wonderful opportunity we

have living in this country and in this community.� After the National Anthem was played, band students from the fifth and sixth grade each played three selections. Three soloists—OHS alums Kelly Askam and Robb Taylor, and Beske’s son Zach Masa-Myers—each played with the six graders in a tribute to The Beatles. Following selections by the seventh and eighth grade and high school bands, Beske stepped in front of a microphone and showed his proficiency on the flute, playing Concertino by Cecile Chaminade. Then alumni and all the students played “Ode to Joy� with fifth graders adding to the encore conclusion with a “pop� from paper bags placed under their seats during the 1812 Overture. The event, which also included a pasta dinner, serves as a fundraiser for the band program. The high school band program is trying to raise $25,000 to purchase new, lightweight and modern marching uniforms to replace the existing 17-year-old uniforms. During the concert, the Oregon Boosters Club donated $2,000 and the Autumn on Parade festival gave $1,000 toward the effort. Donations of any amount are still being accepted. Call Eckardt at 815-677-0873 or email him at aeckardt@ocusd.

Hawks look for more success on baseball field Tournament run in 2013 should help in 2014 By Andy Colbert Reporter Last year, the Oregon baseball team had a 10-14 regular season record and was the No. 5 seed at the 2A regional. In a stunning post-seasons run, the Hawks advanced to the super-sectional. “That did a lot of good for the program,” Oregon coach Adam Albrecht said. “The kids got a taste of what it takes to be successful.” One key to Oregon pulling off upset after upset was timely hitting. “My mentality is to be disciplined,” Albrecht said. “We need those timely hits to move runners and give yourself an opportunity to score.” The Hawks return seven

starters, but lost star pitcher Alex Cain to graduation. “We don’t have that power pitcher. It will hurt not having Alex’s arm,” Albrecht said. “We need to rely on defense and eliminate mistakes.” After Cain developed problems in his throwing arm, Oregon was forced to find someone to fill that void in the regional and sectionals. That player turned out to be Matt Murray. “Matt Murray was excellent in the post-season,” Albrecht said. Murray became the goto guy and one of the better pitchers in the area, but an unlikely source also came up huge in sectional final win over Byron. Mason Smith was brought up and responded with just enough to help Oregon win the title. Another sophomore called up last year was outfielder Skylar Short. Smith and Short lead the way among this year’s junior class. It will be a strong senior class that will set the tone

for this season. Murray will be the throwing ace and he will have his battery mate returning in Joey Rowe. “As a catcher, Joey really came a long way last year,” Albrecht said. Tyler Blume brings his big bat back and will play either first or second base. Another strong bat will come from third-baseman Sawyer Reynolds. Besides being clean-up hitter, Reynolds will also provide value as a pitcher. Currently, he is out for a couple weeks with a hand fracture. The infield should be a definite strength with shortstop Adam Bettner joining Blume and Reynolds. “On defense, Bettner is a cog for us and bats well,” Albrecht said. Paul Rypkema will be relied on for utility work and Luke Ziegler returns as a designated hitter. After going from an average team to something special in the post season,

Albrecht realizes that other teams will look at his team differently in 2014. “I would imagine teams will want to put a hurting on us. Nobody is going to be looking past us,” Albrecht said. In the Big Northern conference, Albrecht sees Byron and Rock Falls as the teams to beat. “Byron returns almost everybody and Rock Falls is always tough,” Albrecht said. So far, four games have been called off for inclement weather and/or poor field conditions. It is hopeful a Thursday afternoon contest at home against Harlem will be played. The Hawks have another home scheduled against another NIC-10 team Rockford East, on Monday. On April 15 and 17, Oregon will play Byron in back-toback games, for what could to be the top regular-season match-up. Each BNC west division team will be played Matt Murray pitches against Eureka at the Rock Island Super Sectional on May 28, 2013. Murray is one of the twice. pitchers for the Hawks this year.

Youth, talent key to Lady Hawks softball season Fundamentals to be key for team this year By Andy Colbert Reporter Oregon’s softball team has a new coach, but Jay Holley is no stranger to the game. Holley becomes the third Lady Hawk coach in three years and brings a wealth of experience with him. “Basically, from the junior class on down, I know the girls,” Holley said. For the past 16 years, Holley has coached youth programs (5-18 years old) in Oregon and Mt. Morris. To be more specific, he has run an Ogle county 11-12 and 13-14 softball and baseball program. “My coaching philosophy is fundamentals. A lot of kids forget what got them here,” Holley said. “I am a disciplinarian, but will listen the girls. Discipline is a big part of fundamentals.” Holley grew up in Mt. Oregon High School junior Abby Baker is the number Morris and was a 3-sport one pitcher for the Lady Hawks this season. File photo athlete there. He learned

under coaches like Frank Swingel, Vern Welp, Gerry Allison and Doug Shank and became a student of the game. “When I was younger, I wanted to coach. This is a dream come true for me,” Holley said. “I’ve based my coaching on understanding the game better than the opponent. A lot of that spilled over from my high school coaches.” Holley has his hands full replacing one of the best players ever to come out of the softball program, in Bree Tourtillott, who was recruited to play at UTEP. Also gone is power hitter Hope Smith. “The team will by young,” said Holley, who has five sophomores on the varsity roster. “We have some talent and will be competitive.” An example of that was found in an opening 13-0 win over West Carroll. “Every time the ball was put into play, there were red uniforms on it, communication and back ups. That shows they want to do it and love the game,” Holley said. “For a coach, that’s a blessing.” The Lady Hawks also

pounded over 15 hits, demonstrating offensive firepower. “Things look promising, but defense wins games,” Holley said. The top returner is senior Kasey Lapp, who will catch and can play both infield and outfield. “She brings a lot of motivation, is a hard worker and a leader. And, she has a positive attitude,” Holley said. Another senior expected to make key contributions is Emma Crandall. Unfortunately, the 4-year senior is out with a ACL injury suffered in October. Her status is uncertain. “She still comes to practice and we utilize her leadership skills,” Holley said. Infielder Brook Logan is back after a 1-year absence and will be an asset as both a slap and regular hitter. Two other seniors, Katilin Oltmanns and Melissa Youngren return and will be used utility players. “I was excited to see Katilin have two hits in two at bats against West Carroll,” Holley said. The No. 1 pitcher will by

junior Abby Baker, who saw a load of varsity time last year. She will also play first base. “Abby knows the game well and understands it well – there’s a difference between the two,” Holley said. Junior Alana Leamanczyk will help the line-up by being a left-handed batter, especially in advancing runners with her bunting. Another junior, Tayla Smith (no relation to Hope Smith) will play utility. Holley plans to use the sophomores as both infielders and outfielders. Bre Bicksler and Bella Holley will also back Lapp us at catcher. Alley Bartling will be the No. 2 hurler behind Baker. The other two sophomores on varsity are Sommer Rhea and Alli Henson. Holley sees Stillman Valley and Rock Falls as the teams to beat in the BNC. Both have stellar pitchers. “Our goal is to finish in the top three in the conference and try to win regional’s,” Holley said. Last year, the Lady Hawks won their first two games of the regional, but lost 9-0 to Stillman in the finals.

Sauk Valley Media Player of the Year

Lambrigtsen wins newspaper’s award — again By Dan Woessner Sauk Valley Media Plaques hang on the wall next to both sets of doors leading into the gymnasium at the Mt. Morris Coliseum, commemorating the donation of the backboards and goals in the name of John Ghibellini. Inscribed on each plaque is the statement: “For future Mt. Morris athletes.” Since their installation, the plaques have witnessed the growth of those very athletes. Hundreds of stories with various plots and climaxes, to the background score of sneakers slapping off the hardwood and voices echoing in the rafters. Maybe of all the stories, the coliseum knows one best of all. It starts with a 4-year-old girl named Sam skipping into the gym with her mother, Wendy, following close behind. Sam probably wore a ponytail and a smile – even now, she confesses to not having a serious face.

Sam’s arms are thin and short, and they hug the round orange orb like she would a teddy bear. Most likely, it started with dribbling – the natural inclination being to slap at the bouncing ball rather than letting it come to her hands. Thousands of times it bounded off the floorboards, growing with purpose each time. The first shots tickled the bottom of the net without reaching the rim. That changed too ... boy, did it ever. Roughly 14 years after Sam Lambrigtsen first stepped into the coliseum, she returned to talk about basketball, the future, and her life. Lambrigtsen, the all-time leading scorer in the Oregon girls basketball program, is Sauk Valley Media’s player of the year for the second straight season.

Oregon Lady Hawks jacket that zips up in the front, a pair of jeans, and brown boots. She brings a basketball and the keys to the coliseum. Her mother is the president of the coliseum board. Access to the court, which is just a couple blocks away from the Lambrigtsen home, is easy for Sam. “I’m not here that much during the season,” Lambrigtsen said. “But in the summer, if I ever start getting bored, then I just come down here and start shooting. I’ve spent a lot of time here, ever since I was like 4 years old.” The gym is where Lambrigtsen developed the skills that would lead to 2,044 points in a 4-year varsity career for the Hawks. It’s one of nine girls basketball records she holds at Oregon. Most of her visits to the coliseum were supervised by her mother, a former basketball coach at Oregon, Home away from home or her father Boyd, an avid Lambrigtsen arrives at athlete and Sam’s constant the coliseum wearing a red foe in ping-pong on the

dining room table. “They almost always wanted to come along,” Lambrigtsen said. “They’d be there to give me tips and push me.” Her parents were always there, even during Wendy’s battle with breast cancer that first reared its head during her sophomore year and

continued throughout her junior season. “She never missed a game,” Lambrigtsen said. “I told her that she could, but she wouldn’t do it.” The left-handed sharpshooter will continue to visit the gym in the coming weeks and months as she prepares for the next step in

her playing life: college. She hasn’t decided where that life will take place yet, but she’s keeping her options open as she looks for the right fit. Oregon coach Kristy Eckardt has encouraged her to take her time in the Turn to B2

Ogle County Newspapers, Thursday, March 27, 2014, Page B2

Samantha Lambrigtsen wins newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award From B1 decision, even if that has meant countless hours on the phone for the coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken 1,000 calls from all over about her,â&#x20AC;? Eckardt said in a phone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get a call from some school in Wyoming one day, and one from the other side of the country the next day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve told her itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something she needs to be sure about. It has to be a fit not just for basketball, but in every other way, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to be the next 4 years.â&#x20AC;?

Growing into it The next level will bring new challenges. Lambrigtsen has a list of skills she wants to work on, including becoming more proficient with her right hand and improving on defense. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing new for her to evolve with the circumstances. As a freshman at Oregon, she played on a varsity team that had two seniors. She could score from the get-go, and the points piled up against unsuspecting foes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her maturity has really been something to watch,â&#x20AC;?

Eckardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She came up as a freshman, and she scored a lot because teams werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting it. She was able to force so many turnovers and score on the other end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The impressive thing was that once teams learned about her, they took that away ... and she still was able to find ways to score and be a force.â&#x20AC;? Playing in the Big Northern West with highcaliber teams from Byron, Mendota and Rockford Lutheran meant the Hawks were going to be challenged most every night. As the team evolved,

NUIC announces the boys all conference team The NUIC East Division Boys Basketball All Conference team was announced recently. The first team includes A.J. Dollmeyer, Polo High

so did its makeup. In her final year, Lambrigtsen was surrounded by eight other seniors. She and McKaylee Beeter both had played varsity since their freshman season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sort of was bittersweet,â&#x20AC;? Lambrigtsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was the group that McKaylee and I started with in third grade, and we all dreamed of state. This was really the first year where we were able to play together since some of us were moved up.â&#x20AC;? The dynamic of the team changed as well, as there were games when Lambrigtsen was forced into the post against towers like Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ellie Lehne. It was a challenge to give up 4 or 5 inches to players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When my mom coached us when we were younger, she made all of us learn how to defend the post,â&#x20AC;? Lambrigtsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, we all knew how to do it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy against really good players, but I think we made up for not having a lot of

size.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks ended 19-12 overall, and 7-5 in the BNC West. They advanced to the sectional semifinal before falling to Prophetstown, the eventual state runner-up in Class 2A. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think about that game a lot,â&#x20AC;? Lambrigtsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps to know that we lost to Prophetstown, which was a really good team that went on to get second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to go farther, but winning the regional is something we were determined to do. We wanted another piece of net, and we did it.â&#x20AC;? Brick-by-brick The bricks at the Mount Morris Coliseum will echo for a long time from Lambrigtsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact. The record book at Oregon is dominated by her name. But her imprint is deeper than that. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked with younger players at camps at Oregon and Mount Morris. Her play has inspired the next generation at the school, and in the village of

3,100 residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been really good with the younger girls,â&#x20AC;? Eckardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She helps with camps, and the girls get excited to work with her. They come to the games, and they leave wanting to play like her.â&#x20AC;? As for coaching, Lambrigtsen expects there will be some of that in her future. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in her blood, after all, as the daughter of a coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, definitely, when my kids get into it,â&#x20AC;? Lambrigtsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they definitely will be into it.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible in several years that the scene will play out again. The old coliseum will see Sam again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this time with her own young boy or girl to guide. Because while Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school playing days are over, buildings like the coliseum go on, always there for the future athletes who dream big, even in small towns.

Sports Column Apply spiritual principles first By Andy Colbert Reporter Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys basketball 2A state title game between Harrisburg and Seton Academy was known more for altercations between fans, players and coaches than the final score. Things got ugly enough for the IHSA to consider shutting the game down at halftime. Since then, the IHSA had asked officials to crack down on overly physical play and that sportsmanship would be a major priority for 2014. In terms of sportsmanship, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short list of what has transpired since the Harrisburg-Seton fiasco. The No. 1 girls team in 4A, Homewood-Flossmoor, was hit by a lawsuit from one its

players and subsequently was barred from competing in the state tournament by the IHSA because of wrong-doings by the coach. Chicago Curie, the No. 1 boys team in 4A, was found to have seven players being allowed to play that were academically ineligible. They were stripped of their publicleague title and forced to forfeit all 24 wins. The 3A girls state finals was the domain of the three private schools, with the publics having little chance of competing. To a varying degree, the same applied in 2A, as Champaign St. More with its assembled all-stars who doubled the score on Prophetstown. When a championship game is that lopsided, something is wrong.

of 116, won the 1A girls championship. That should have been a feel-good story. Wrong. Earlier in the season, its coach was suspended for berating referees and got into more hot water by calling his school administrators â&#x20AC;&#x153;moronsâ&#x20AC;? and also disparaging an upcoming opponent. Keith Olbermann mocked the situation on national TV. And, questions also abounded as to how this tiny town happened to have so much basketball talent. The winning margin in the 1A title game was similar to 2A blowout. Another feel-good story should have been Mooseheart and its kids from broken homes winning the boys 1A title. But, the story became one of lawsuits filed by the school to allow three very, very tall kids from the Sudan

to be on the team. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget about the handshaking-turned-fist fight between Rockford East and Jefferson. To cap this year off, a major controversy occurred at the 4A tournament. A still photo in social media appeared to show Stevenson all-stater Jalen Brunson making an obscene gesture at the end of a semifinal loss to Whitney Young. In response to this, IHSA director Marty Hickman suspended Brunson from playing in the third-place game. Brunson, with the support from his schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration, felt the photo was unrepresentative and the punishment undeserved. Apparently, word got back to the IHSA that Stevenson was considering boycotting the third-place game if Brunson was not allowed to play. Minutes before the

In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era of cheating, illegal recruiting, lawsuits, questionable transfers, fights between players, bad behavior by coaches, lopsided championship finals, declining attendance at state finals, complaints levied at the IHSA, negative influences of AAU club ball and overall sloppy play on the court, the Brunson incident is just one more indictment against high school basketball in Illinois. As was mentioned two weeks ago in this column, it is a spiritual bankruptcy that is the problem, not the game of basketball itself. If indeed this is a spiritual dilemma, those in charge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; boards of education, school administrators, coaches, IHSA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are looking at the wrong source for the solution. Addressing it from a legalistic,
