Village board will set high usage sewage rate By Chris Johnson Reporter The Mt. Morris Village Board will create a new high usage sewage rate after discussions were held about Mt. Morris Estates. The owner of the trailer park, Ken Hauck, had asked the board in March if the property could be annexed in if a lower sewer rate could not be negotiated. Trustee Don Sorensen asked the board Tuesday night to approve a 130 percent high usage sewage rate. This rate is 130 percent of what a village resident would pay for sewer service. “We do not need to annex the property, but create a high usage rate,� Sorensen said. The rate would apply to users outside the city limits, using 40,000 cubic feet per billing cycle. The wording of the ordinance would be for any property outside the village

Construction begins on highway dept. building The foundation has been poured on the new equipment building at the Ogle County Highway Department. When completed, the 90foot by 150-foot building will have a concrete foundation and steel frame and will be located at the highway department headquarters at 1989 Ill. 2 South, Oregon. County Engineer Curtis Cook said the highway department’s new building will be used to store heavy equipment, some of which currently sits outside. “When you don’t have shelter for equipment it does not last as long,� he said. “This building will allow us to store everything inside and

could still consider annexing Mt. Morris Estates to lower their rates to the standard village fee. A flow meter was installed by the village last year to measure the sewer usage from Mt. Morris Estates. A decades-old agreement between the village and the trailer park had expired, and the two sides were in negotiations on a new rate. In other business the board voted to allow parking on the west side of North Wesley Avenue, between Hitt Street and Sunset Lane. The street was a no parking area to allow traffic to and from the former printing plant on Sunset. With the plant closed no need exists to prohibit parking. Village attorney Eric Morrow told the board they could change the ordinance in the future to a no parking zone if another business opens the facility.

limits, not just Mt. Morris Estates. Originally, the rates for Mt. Morris Estates would have risen to 200 percent which would have been approximately $140 per month for the each of the 107 units (trailers) in the complex that are hooked up to village wastewater. Onsite wells provide fresh water to these units. Hauck had asked for a 125 percent surcharge. “They wanted 125 percent,� said Sorensen. “It is a little bit more.� The board unanimously voted to change the village ordinance. Trustee David Hoffman was absent. The old rate at Mt. Morris Estates was $80 per month per unit. The new rate would be under $100 per month. Mt. Morris Estates is home to 300 people. Sixty units are using septic systems. In the future the board

make the equipment last.� The existing storage building was completed in 1967 and is a tight fit for equipment. The road graders will be moved to the new building when the project is completed. “The old building was built for smaller trucks,� said Cook. “The road graders can barely get in.� Having the new space will make it easier to park the equipment and allow for better access to all the equipment, he said. The dump trucks will remain in the original building. Cook said plans call for the building to be completed by July 1, and after that parking areas will be redone to ensure

that water drains away from the buildings. “The parking lot is a mess with all the cuts in it,� said Cook. “I am looking forward to getting the project completed.� The money to pay for the building will come from the Long Range Planning Fund. Revenues in that fund come from the host fees paid by garbage collection firms to dump refuse in the landfills within the county. The fees bring approximately $3 million per year in the county’s coffers. According to the budget, the Long Range Planning Fund, which is earmarked for major capital projects, was projected to start the new fiscal year with a balance of $13 million.

A rural Ashton woman was severely injured early Monday morning after two pit bulls attacked her while she was jogging near her home. Aneda Ebert, 63, 3413 Dugdale Rd., was jogging past a neighbor’s residence on Dugdale Road in southern Ogle County when two pit bulls ran out of the yard and attacked her. “She was severely injured while she was jogging,�

“It’s a good thing her husband was right there or it might have been a fatality,� Champley said. The dogs were impounded by Animal Control, he said, and the owner agreed that they should be euthanized. That has already been done. Champley said no previous problems have been reported to Animal Control with the two dogs involved in the incident. Ogle County Sheriff’s Police are continuing to investigate.

County board disagrees over ZBA appointment Former board member replaces ZBA member By Vinde Wells Editor

An appointment to the Ogle County Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) proved controversial April 15. County board member Bruce McKinney, Rochelle, objected to a motion to appoint former county board member Dennis Williams, Byron, to the ZBA. Instead he said he favored the reappointment of current ZBA member Randall Anderson, Chana, who had also applied for the seat. McKinney said Anderson has been a dedicated ZBA Three cement trucks line up April 11 to pour concrete into the forms for the new equipment member and should be reappointed. storage building at the Ogle County Highway Department.

Dr. Tom Champley, Ogle County Animal Control Administrator, said. “She had severe injuries to her neck, shoulder, and leg.� Ebert was taken by ambulance to KSB Hospital, Dixon, where she has undergone surgery and more is scheduled. Ebert’s husband Larry was riding a bike and was some distance behind her when the attack occurred. He saw the dogs attacking as he approached their home and came to his wife’s assistance.

He said he believes Anderson was not recommended for another term because he did not vote in opposition to wind farms. Recommendations for appointments to the ZBA are made by the State’s Attorney’s Committee. Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said Anderson’s voting record on wind farms was not mentioned during the committee’s discussion of the appointment. Instead he said, the issue was their stands on the county’s Comprehensive Plan. “There was a distinct difference between the two candidates,� he said. Neither candidate attended the county board meeting. Board member Lyle Hopkins said he favors Anderson because he is a

farmer, and Williams is not. Board member Ashley Simms, Rochelle, disagreed that a farmer is a better choice for the ZBA. Board member Pat Saunders, Polo, said farmers have more at stake in the zoning rules set by the county. Persons who live in a city or village, she said, are governed by the zoning ordinances within that municipality, rather than the county’s. “Yes, but we all pay taxes,� replied Simms. County board member Lee Meyers, Byron, said Williams lives in a rural subdivision. McKinney’s motion to replace Williams with Anderson as the appointee was defeated 9-13, and a subsequent motion to appoint Williams was approved 139.

Fiery crash on I-39 claims life of Texas truck driver Sauk Valley Media The investigation continues into a fiery crash on Interstate 39 in Ogle County on April 18 that involved three semitrailers and took the life of a driver from Texas, Illinois State Police said. According to a news release and to ISP Sgt. Eric Van Dyke, a northbound semi driven by William M. Spearman, 41, Chicago, was going slower than the minimum speed limit of 45

Woods Equipment Co. to add 23 more jobs Congressman Kinzinger tours Oregon plant By David Giuliani Sauk Valley Media With the economy ticking up, so is Woods Equipment Co. in Oregon, executives say. The company, which employs 300, plans to add 23 more jobs to its factory, where backhoes and other attachments for tractors are made. Last year, Woods, a division of Portland, Ore.based Blount International, added a laser cutting system, which was the “biggest investment in 20 years,� said Mark Miller, the company’s chief financial officer.

Executives said the equipment improves the plant’s accuracy and efficiency. It also frees up space in the 400,000-squarefoot building, which will be used to make other yet-tobe-determined products, Miller said. On April 16, U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, toured the plant and spoke to workers at an outside rally sponsored by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ “I Make America� campaign. Shortly before 11 a.m., employees stood outside as winds whipped the U.S., Illinois and Woods flags overhead. The congressman, in a suit and tie, told the crowd that he was optimistic about the economy, particularly

manufacturing in the northern part of his 16th Congressional District, which includes Lee and Ogle counties. His biggest concern, Kinzinger said, was policies in Illinois that drive jobs away. “We’re not losing jobs to India anymore,� Kinzinger said. “We’re losing jobs to Indiana.� For instance, he said in an earlier news conference, the minimum wage is higher in Illinois than the national average, yet the state has one of the highest jobless rates. He ended his short speech to the workers by saying that he understands people have little trust for politicians. “That’s an understatement,� an employee whispered.

An eye exam is a good idea, especially if things are starting to look a little fuzzy around the edges.

mph and was rear-ended around 8 p.m. by a semi driven by Ralph W. Maness, 60, Sanger, Texas, just south of Rochelle. Maness’ truck burst into flames, and he died at the scene. The third semi, driven by Craig L. Zimbauer, 36, Elk Mound, Wis., and also northbound, swerved into a ditch to avoid the accident, but stopped so close that his semi also caught fire. Neither Spearman nor

Zimbauer were injured. Spearman was cited for violating the minimum speed limit, which is a $120 ticket. Northbound traffic was diverted from I-39 to Ill. 251 until 9 a.m. April 19 while the on-scene investigation was conducted. Further investigation into the accident is ongoing, Van Dyke said. He didn’t know how fast the first two trucks were going, or what they were hauling.

Shed near Polo destroyed in fire A shed at a rural Polo residence was destroyed Monday in an early morning fire. When Polo firefighters arrived just before 5:30 a.m., the shed at 16214 W. Milledgeville Rd. was fully

engulfed and nothing inside was salvageable, Fire Chief Tony Karrow reported. Firefighters remained on the scene for four hours. Karrow said no one was injured in the blaze, the cause for which is so far

undetermined. The Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshall is assisting with the investigation. Fire crews finally cleared out of the area at 10 a.m., the chief said.

In the afternoon, the children went outside for an Easter egg hunt in the beautiful sunshine. There were many celebrations throughout the day. Many of us celebrated by sharing a meal and spending time with our families. While our family has gotten noticeably smaller, it seems we are celebrating with many more family members. God provides a family for each of us. It may not be in the traditional sense. We are a family together in Christ. We share in sadness, frustration, and especially, in celebrations. I hope to see you next week when our church family gathers to praise and worship our amazing God.

Pegasus needs volunteers to help with its special riders

Members of the OCHS Class of 1963 donated $500 to the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department that was raised from the sale of a framed print of the Black Hawk Statue. The money will be used for a scholarship the sheriff’s department presents each year. Pictured here are Liz DeArvil, Sheriff Michael Harn, Gail Rasmussen, and Bob Hill. Photo by Chris Johnson

Pegasus Special Riders may not be able to accept new riders if officials cannot increase the number of volunteers who participate. The organization, which serves Boone, Carroll, Lee, Ogle, Stephenson, Whiteside and Winnebago Counties, has 79 participants on a weekly basis. The program provides restorative horseback riding for children and adults with special needs, an activity that is both therapeutic and fun for everyone involved. “If Pegasus is to continue to meet the growing needs of the program and community, we need to increase our volunteer staff,� said Zina Leary,

executive director. “With only two paid staff members, the organization depends on a network of volunteers to act as instructors, walkers, leaders and feeders. Everyone contributes their time to enhance the lives of the riders and the horses. “Each horse and rider needs a minimum of one and a maximum of three volunteers for a one-hour session. There are three to six students per class, or four to twelve volunteers per session, depending on the needs of each rider,� Leary said. “The safety and well-being of our participants is of the utmost importance,� Leary

continued. “To increase classes to meet demand and maintain our high standards, we need more volunteers. “The time commitment is minimal, but the rewards are immeasurable. We all want to make a difference in this world, this is your chance.� Pegasus Special Riders is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization providing equine assisted therapy to physically, mentally and/ or emotionally challenged individuals. Anyone interested in volunteering their time, should contact Zina Leary, Executive Director, at 815973-3177.

OCHS Class of ‘63 donates to fund in honor of a classmate Members of the Oregon Community High School Class of 1963 recently dated a check for $500 in memory of a classmate to the Ogle County Sheriff’s Scholarship Fund. When the Class of ‘63 celebrated its 50-year reunion at White Pines Lodge on June 22, 2013, Linda Portner Mueller, Pecatonica, donated a framed print of Black Hawk Statue, requesting that it

be used to commemorate the life long friendship of classmate, Shirley White Wilson. Wilson served her community as an active member in the Deputy Reserves Unit. With this interest in mind, class members decided that a donation go to the Ogle County Sheriff’s Scholarship Fund. Robert Hill, Creston, placed the winning bid

on the print at the silent auction and as a gesture of friendship presented it to Wilson’s sister, Gail Rasmussen, Flagg Center. “Fond memories of Shirley remain in the hearts of classmates and friends,� said class member Liz DeArvil, Chana. “This generous tribute will benefit another student as they continue their education.�

Byron students Miles Lindholtz and Emily Bauer visited the food bank’s Northwest Center in Loves Park in April to present a check for their donation. The funds will allow Northern Illinois Food Bank

Band signs on for concert The Mt. Morris Friday Night Campus Concerts will present a new country band as the second show of the 2014 season.

They began as a duo, and won a battle of the bands contest at the Hollywood Casino in Joliet, beating out 15 other full bands. Since bringing on a full band they have played many clubs and bars as well as festivals, private parties, and corporate events. The duo also played at Country Thunder 2012 in Twin Lakes, Wis. The full band got to play at Country Thunder 2013

How will transition in sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office be handled? Source speaks to newspaper By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media Note to readers: The Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department source in this story asked for and was given anonymity by Sauk Valley Media to avoid any potential for workplace retaliation. The result of the March 18 Republican primary election led to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sigh of reliefâ&#x20AC;? for many members of the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, according to a department source. Sheriff Michael Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than three years in office began with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantâ&#x20AC;? reshuffling of the department, and he later became disruptive and retaliatory, according to a longtime member of the department who spoke with Sauk Valley Media on the condition of anonymity. Harn lost in a close threeway primary won by Brian VanVickle, a Rochelle police officer. The Democratic Party has no candidate yet for the general election ballot on Nov. 4. The new sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term starts Dec. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know in December things are going to change,â&#x20AC;? the source said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Harn is]

going to retire or whatever. We just have to get through this summer.â&#x20AC;? The sheriff didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t respond to multiple requests to comment for this story. Harn has served 29 years with the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, the past three as sheriff after defeating his boss, Sheriff Greg Beitel, in the 2010 primary election. Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first decision as sheriff, in his first hour in office, according to the source, was to reshuffle the department, moving five investigators to patrol and five patrol deputies to the investigation unit. Reshuffling a department after a transition is common, the source said, but Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive shakeup came as a surprise to most deputies and forced the department to â&#x20AC;&#x153;play catch-up.â&#x20AC;? The source added that today, the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigations unit is a positive asset. The moves might have been politically motivated, he said, adding that the five investigators who were moved to patrol had been supporters of Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Draw your own conclusion,â&#x20AC;? the source said. In an interview last Tuesday, VanVickle said he expects some reshuffling when he takes over in December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve begun

to think about that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be any earth-shattering changes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great group of guys there. There will be some restructuring and refocusing. In terms of wholesale change, that definitely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occur.â&#x20AC;? During Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three years as sheriff, he showed up at the department â&#x20AC;&#x153;three or fourâ&#x20AC;? times a week, the source said. But in the month after the election, according to the source, Harn was there only three times. The Monday after the election, the source said, Harn changed the locks on his office door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not there,â&#x20AC;? the source said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He disrupts things when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there.â&#x20AC;? Harn can micromanage deputies and be vindictive, the source said, adding that the sheriff is usually in his office for about 20 minutes during each visit. However, Harn does call in to the department and is available through email, the source said. VanVickle said he expects to have a greater day-to-day role, adding that it was a job he chose to seek, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will be very involved, and I will be at the office during normal business hours,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my intention.â&#x20AC;? He added that the administrative nature of the

Public Voice Koper says audit is needed Dear Editor, I attended the Ogle County Board meeting on April 15 and found it very interesting. A couple items that were brought up gave me reason for concern. The building of the new sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative building was discussed. After hearing from an architect, the planned location was brought up. Several board members again expressed their view against the present planned location for the building. They, along with Oregon City Commissioner Ken Williams and prominent local, county-wide business woman Beth Henderson brought to light their dislike of the planned location along First Street (location of present sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, morgue and maintenance building). At minimum this group requested a 30-day delay on the vote to accept the bid and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location to allow for an impact study. That was defeated by a close 13-8 margin.

I do not understand why all avenues of investigation of a $4 million project were not allowed thus enabling the final vote to be of a much wider spread or even a 100 percent yes. Voters would then know that all questions and problems on the table had been worked out prior to itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start. What is a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss in a project lasting way over a year? The First Street property is certainly of more value to the city than the county so hold and sell when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appropriate. The county already owns property surrounding the new judicial center and as originally planned a new sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office was to be built there making access to the court houses an easy walk. Three of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s towing service owners expressed a First Amendment concern. All three claimed that they had been on the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tow rotation list for years. After Sheriff Harn took over they had received no calls for a tow from the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office other than by a vehicle ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request. One had recently been terminated after receiving a

letter, another after a dispute with the sheriff and the third as he had displayed a political sign of a candidate other than the sheriff prior to the last primary. Plus the other two displayed opposing campaign signs also. A request for a forensic audit of the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tow fund was heard. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super, but falling way short of a complete forensic audit of the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. A newly elected sheriff will surely want this done before he takes office so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get it done now. Why wait? Al Koper Oregon

Proud of county board decision Dear Editor, I am very proud of the Ogle County Board that they approved the building of the new Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Building. The board had the fortitude and vision to do the right thing and it will be a nice asset to the community. Sincerely, J. Stephen Moehle Vernon Hills

job means that he might be at county government meetings at times. In two instances since taking office, Harn placed a law enforcement officer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lieutenant and sergeant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on front desk duty, which is a job now handled by a parttime employee, the source said. Those moves were made out of retribution, the source suggested. In one instance, the sheriff also revoked the officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privilege of taking a patrol car home. Such actions, which can be politically motivated, are among the reasons the majority of the department supported VanVickle during the primary, the source said. He knew of only three department members who supported Harn. The source added that because of the experience of many of its members, the department was still performing well. Harn, in an interview with Sauk Valley Media for a story that was published March 8, before the primary election, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the office needed to be reorganized to perform at a higher level with less financial resources.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am the first to admit that forgoing raises, eliminating overtime, and asking for a good dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work from everybody has not made me the most popular boss,â&#x20AC;? Harn said then. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I am proud that not a single employee has been laid off, and am truly proud of the way our employees have executed the mission I laid out.â&#x20AC;? In December, Sauk Valley Media reported on Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of department credit cards for a variety of purchases, including thousands of dollars for â&#x20AC;&#x153;trainingâ&#x20AC;? lunches, as well as some personal expenses,

In previous interviews with Sauk Valley Media, Harn has said his departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page is a way he and the department interact with citizens and keep them informed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Citizens appreciate knowing who the problem people are who are currently breaking the law in our county, and what types of crimes are being committed,â&#x20AC;? Harn said in the March 8 story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now have a way to communicate weather-related issues and road conditions.â&#x20AC;? The last post on that Facebook page was made March 13. Five posts were made in March. Since telling his department not to speak with Sauk Valley Media, Harn has been difficult to reach for information on arrests and investigations, something the department source did not like. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the best interest of the citizens to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the department,â&#x20AC;? the source said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public safety issue.â&#x20AC;? During the months before Harn took office after defeating Beitel, the two sat down to work out the transition, the source said. While enough experienced deputies are available to help with the transition from Harn to VanVickle, the source said he doubted Harn would be so cooperative. VanVickle said he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken to Harn since the election, but added that he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet tried to reach the sheriff, though he will at some point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took that oath,â&#x20AC;? the source said of the oath that law enforcement members take. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live that oath. Sometimes I think the man that gave us that oath forgot about his oath.â&#x20AC;?

which he paid directly to the credit card company. While the â&#x20AC;&#x153;trainingâ&#x20AC;? lunches were common knowledge, the source said, the other purchases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their variety and frequency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; came as a surprise. Also in December, Sauk Valley Media reported on the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative tow fund, which had collected $210,400 between October 2011 and November 2013 and was used to pay for repairs to department vehicles, a tent at the Ogle County Fair, and a $4,000 management fee for the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page, among other expenses. The Ogle County Board has since restricted what the fund can be used for and transferred control of it to the county treasurer. VanVickle supported the fundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restrictions to make it work as it was intended. He also said he would eliminate the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gasoline credit cards and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;credit cards will be vastly restricted.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The spending needs to be regulated,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and there needs to be some more accountability than there has been.â&#x20AC;? After stories about the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending were published, the department source said, Harn became more disruptive and often yelled at department members. Harn sent an internal memo about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dissemination of informationâ&#x20AC;? to his staff on March 12. Harn told personnel that â&#x20AC;&#x153;no member of this department is to have any contact with Sauk Valley Media or its reporter without prior approval of the sheriff,â&#x20AC;? citing the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy manual and another memo he had sent in 2012.

Take care when burning waste In the spring and fall, the number of citizen complaints made to fire departments and law enforcement agencies regarding the open burning of waste increase dramatically. Many people are spending more time outside and cleaning up their homes and properties. Some people are choosing to do so by burning the waste, which increases the risk of wildfires. Open burning of waste is generally prohibited in the State of Illinois under Section 9(c) of the Illinois Environmental Protection (IEPA) Act. The end of Section 9 of the act states that the section shall not limit the burning of landscape waste on the property where it was generated or the burning of landscape waste at sites provided and supervised by any unit of local government located in a county with a population less than 400,000.

However, municipalities may further regulate or restrict open burning in their jurisdictions. Open burning is prohibited except for the following: Open burning of agricultural waste, domicile waste, and landscape waste; Setting fires to combat or limit existing fires, such as wildfires; Burning fuel for legitimate campfire, recreational, and cooking purposes, or in domestic fireplaces; Burning waste gases, such as in refinery flares; and Small open flames for heating tar, welding and the like. The conditions which must be met to allow for the open burning of agricultural, domicile, and landscape waste are: The waste must be generated on the premises. It cannot be hauled in from elsewhere; Atmospheric conditions at the time of burning must

readily dissipate the smoke; The burning cannot take place in restricted areas or municipalities with burning bans; The burning must not create a visibility hazard on roadways, railroad tracks and/ or airfields. The burning must not cause air pollution. Open burning of landscape waste on the property where it was generated in unincorporated areas is not a violation of state law as long as all previously described conditions are being met. The burning must be done at least 50 feet from the nearest residence. Common sense must also be used. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave a fire unattended, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the fire smolder, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn when neighbors are having a picnic or hanging laundry out to dry. Be mindful of downwind areas where smoke will Turn to 93

One of Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; state symbols has been in the news both nationally and internationally for a troubling fact. Scientists have documented an unprecedented drop in numbers of the monarch butterfly on its wintering grounds in Mexico since the mid-1990s. The Illinois Department of National Resources (INDR) is asking for the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help in growing monarch populations. The monarch is dependent on the milkweed family. While the story of the monarchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline and hopeful comeback stretches well beyond the borders of Illinois the IDNR plays a vital role in its conservation in Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forty years ago, Illinois school children convinced the Illinois General Assembly to adopt the monarch butterfly as Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; state insect,â&#x20AC;? said IDNR director Marc Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Help us honor that legacy by working with us to conserve habitat for the monarch, and make our state parks and backyards safe harbors for these amazing, long-distance travelers.â&#x20AC;? The fate of the monarch in Illinois is tied to the fate of the plant host milkweed, the host plants used by its familiar striped caterpillars. In Illinois, there are 19 species of milkweed that mostly grow in prairies, though some can be found in woodlands, untilled fields, roadsides and ditches. Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on milkweed plants. In a few days, the egg hatches into a larvae or

caterpillar. The caterpillar feeds for about two weeks until it is ready to form its chrysalis. In 10 days to two weeks, the adult butterfly emerges. monarch butterflies are migratory, and it takes four generations to complete the journey from the central United States to wintering grounds in Mexico and back again. Miller suggests the following ideas to help conserve habitat for monarchs. Include milkweed and native flowering plants in landscaping. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mow or spray herbicide on milkweed patches. Reduce mowing where possible. Milkweeds grow readily along roadsides, field edges, fallow fields, and other untended places. Cutting back on mowing saves fuel and time, and provides habitat for many other species of grassland birds, mammals, and insects. Many communities hold native plant sales during the spring. Additionally, the IDNR annually offers a Schoolyard Habitat Grant Program. Visit the grants page to see if a specific organization qualifies: http://dnr.state. il.us/education/CLASSRM/

Many publications are available in PDF format at www.dnr.illinois.gov/ publications. Titles are listed for each subject. Miller said IDNR is doing its part to keep the environment healthy for all native species. Illinois state parks, nature preserves, state forests and other properties play a significant role in the survival of countless species of insects, birds, plants, fish and animals, including the Monarch butterfly. Illinois has 324 stateowned and leased parks, fish and wildlife areas, state forests, state trails, natural areas, and recreational sites, with 45 million visits annually. The highest quality natural communities in Illinois have been identified through the Illinois Natural Areas Inventory. These 28,000 acres occupy 0.077 percent of the Illinois landscape but represent the best opportunity to preserve and protect a large percentage of the terrestrial biodiversity of the state. Many of these identified sites owned by the IDNR, other public entities and private individuals have been formally protected under the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission. IDNR staff conducts stewardship projects throughout the year. These include invasive species control to controlled burns and hydrological restoration. The projects help to make the habitats more sustainable and viable, including for milkweeds and monarchs.

Habitat home for mom, son Jennifer Larsen and her son, Vincenzo, will be the recipients of a new home in Oregon to be built this year, Habitat for Humanity of Ogle County announced this week. This is the ninth home build in Ogle County. The construction of the home will start this spring and is expected to be completed by September. In addition to the help of volunteers, the family will provide a minimum of 200 hours of â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweat equityâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very excited to have the Larsens as the recipients of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Habitat home,â&#x20AC;? said HFHOC Board President, Bob Van Stedum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pleased to be able to create new opportunities for deserving families like theirs.â&#x20AC;? Habitat for Humanity empowers low-income families in need by partnering with them to build decent, affordable housing. Habitat works to give families a hand up, not a hand out, by providing the family with a no-profit, no-interest mortgage loan.

Lawn care questions in the wake of last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought are now pouring in, said Rhonda Ferree, a University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator. Ferree listed the following as her top 10 tips, ranked in order of importance. Fertilize at the proper time. Most homeowners only need one application per year, which should be done in early September. This helps the grass prepare for winter dormancy and spring growth. If grass needs two applications a year, add the second application in early May. Mow using the one-third rule, which means to never remove more than one-third of the grass height in a single mowing. Many homeowners mow their lawn too short. For best results, mow grass two to three inches tall and let the grass clippings remain on the lawn to return nutrients back to the soil. Water infrequently and deeply, providing one inch of water a week. If a homeowner waters the grass to keep it growing in the heat of summer, it should be consistent.

State has several open burning rules From A8 travel. Keep a hose or fire extinguisher near the fire to prevent the fire from spreading. The open burning of domicile waste (refuse generated on single family property as a result of domiciliary activities) such as paper or cardboard, on the property where it was generated may not be a violation until someone complains about it. At that point it may be considered air pollution and may be subject to enforcement. Under no circumstance is garbage, refuse derived from handling, processing, preparation, cooking, and consumption of food or food products, or trade waste allowed to be burned. Trade waste is defined as any refuse resulting from the prosecution of any trade, business, industry, commercial venture, utility or service activity, and any government or institutional activity, whether or not for profit. Tires, pallets, insulation off of wire, and general construction, remodeling and demolition waste, are examples of trade waste which are often burned illegally. The Illinois EPA may grant permits for open burning if it serves the public interest, and the appropriate permit application is filed with and approved by them. Permits may be issued for the following activities: fire fighting training; burning landscaped waste with an air curtain destructor; in a disaster area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; open burning of clean wooden building debris, landscape waste, and agricultural waste caused by a disaster. In practice, the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department will investigate all complaints of dumping or open burning of waste in unincorporated areas of the county. People involved in open burning of waste could face administrative citations and fines of $1,500 for each violation of dumping and/or burning of waste. Other additional charges and fines may also be imposed,

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t water a little each time the grass starts to brown. This stresses the grass as it bounces in and out of summer dormancy. Put the right plant in the right place. Grass types for full-sun areas include Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue. For shady areas, use fine or red fescue. If the area is too shady to grow grass, try shade perennials or mulch instead. Weeds are best managed by maintaining a healthy, dense lawn. If weeds become a problem, time control measures carefully. Insects and disease should only be treated if the problem actually exists. If confirmed, proper timing of control measures is critical. Decide on the preferred quality of grass, but remember fertilized grass grows quickly and needs to be mowed more frequently. Finally, have fun and enjoy the lawn. For more information on lawn care, visit the U of I Extension LawnTalk website at http://urbanext.illinois. edu/lawntalk/.

depending on circumstances. Incorporated areas of the county may have stricter laws pertaining to the burning of refuse or landscape waste. Anyone living in a municipality should check with local authorities for local regulations. In summary, the open burning of most waste is generally prohibited. There are better ways to manage the waste. Regular refuse pickup and special small or large roll-off dumpster services for disposal of waste for those without regular service. IEPA permitted landfills and transfer stations are available for disposal of waste for those without regular service. Drop-off recycling stations are located in Byron, Davis Junction, Forreston, Monroe Center, Oregon, Polo, and Rochelle.

On site management of landscape waste (composting or mulching) is encouraged, or commercial composting sites are available in the region. Residents are encouraged to keep air clean and dispose of

waste safely and properly. For more information contact the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department, 909 W. Pines Road, Oregon, IL 61061, 815732-4020 or oglecounty.org.

Softball team falls to Rock Falls 4-1 By Patrick Mason Sauk Valley Media Alli Henson was 3-for-3, but the Lady Hawks fell to Rock Falls 4-1 on Monday. The rest of the Lady Hawks had trouble hitting Rock Falls’ pitcher Michaela Ward, a junior, who recorded 13 strikeouts while giving up five hits—three of which were Henson’s. Henson, a sophomore, had solid approaches at the plate and saw at least four pitches each at-bat which led to three singles. She moved into scoring position twice, but the Hawks (6-5 overall, 1-3 BNW) couldn’t bring her home either time. Oregon coach Jay Holley praised Henson’s pitch recognition and was pleased to see her make consistent contact in a game where the rest of the lineup struggled to do so.

“Alli sees the ball really well,” Holley said. “She hit the ball hard today and, for a sophomore, that’s something we really like to see. Holley also took note of his team’s high strikeout rate, but had a positive take. One stat the first-year coach looked at in particular was of the 13 strikeouts, 12 were swinging. “Swinging the bat is something that we have put a lot of initiative towards,” he said. “When I go back and look at our statistics of what happened, I’m glad to see we don’t have backward Ks. “If were going to strikeout, I like to see us swinging the bat.” Oregon pitcher Abby Baker (4-2) had a lot of movement on her pitches which made it tough for the Rockets to string together any big innings, but they scored a run in each of the first three and added another in the sixth. April 19: The Lady Hawks split a doubleheader, winning the first game 10-4, but losing the second game 19-18, after allowing four runs in the bottom of the seventh. Kasey Lapp had a big day, totaling four RBIs, a home run and two doubles. Ally Bartling earned the win in game one, striking out eight batters in seven innings.

Media overkill for 2014 Boston Marathon By Andy Colbert Reporter About a year ago and with a great deal of sorrow, this column discussed the Boston Marathon bombing. As the race returned for the 118th running this past Monday, my thoughts have changed. What I see now is a culture of fear and selfaggrandizement manifesting itself. Compared to rest of the world, we make too big of a deal out of something like the Boston bombing. Much

Sports Column of that blame falls on the mainstream media. In any other year, the Boston Marathon receives minimal coverage by the national media. Now, it has become front page news because of something that occurred a year ago. As a member of the marathon community, I subscribe to various running magazines and podcasts and all have played the bombing out to the hilt. Article after article were about runners’ thoughts on the bombing and how they plan to “recover” from it, even though they may not have been anywhere close to the actual explosion. The theme “Boston Strong” has materialized on shirts, stickers, bracelets and license

plates. Considering the selfinduced fear that Boston lived after the bombing, it seems inappropriate to use the word “strong” as a theme. That whole town and its environs were shut down for days as the two punks responsible for this were being pursued. Schools, business and public transportation stopped and residents stayed home and hid. Talk about overkill on public safety and cowardice by the citizenry. On that same vein, 3,500 police were on duty for this year’s marathon, along with video cameras, bombsniffing dogs, a SWAT unit, metal detectors, emergency command posts, 40 ambulances and a ban on baby strollers. There

was even trauma counseling available. That’s a huge waste of public resources and a sad statement on what we’ve become as a people. What’s the point of even putting the marathon on? When incidents like a bombing happen elsewhere in the world, its business as usual the next day. No other country in the world lives in fear as much as us, again most of it propagated by our media and misguided public officials. It wasn’t always like this. I could not imagine the men and women of our World War II generation being as fearful or making such a big deal out of a similar act of violence. What about the people of London who were being

bombed non-stop by the Germans for months and months? They stoically kept going about their business without any fanfare. That’s the type of spirit I admire, not the self-serving Boston Strong variety. Instead of mournfully paying our respects a year ago and moving on, the Boston Marathon has become a spectacle of self-congratulation for overcoming the bombing and not letting terrorism “win”. If I’ve offended anyone or seem callous, I apologize. However, let’s just run the race and forget about all the hoopla surrounding it. Big city marathons can be enriching experiences for its participants. Anymore though, I’ll settle

Andy Colbert

for pounding the miles away on the country roads around Ogle County. After all, a marathon is really only about running.

Electronic recycling event is May 3 By Reita Nicholson AdministrativeAssistant Ogle County Solid Waste Mangement Dept. An electronic recycling event is coming up for residents to recycle their old or broken electronics in a safe and responsible way. The recycling event is scheduled for Saturday, May 3 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The entrance will be located at the Ogle County Farm Bureau parking lot, 421 W. Pines Rd., Oregon. This event is sponsored by the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department and the Lee County Office of Solid Waste Management. Materials collected at this event will be processed and recycled by Secure Recycling Services of Dixon, Illinois. The recycling event will

be accepting only residential electronic equipment such as answering machines, calculators, cameras, cell phones, CD Rom drives, computers, cables, cable receivers, copy machines, and credit card machines. Digital converter boxes, digital music players, CDs and DVDs, electric motors and wire, fax machines, floppy disk drives, keyboards, laptops, modems, monitors, mice (electronic), and microwave ovens will also be accepted. Other items that can be recycled are pagers, phone systems, printers, postage machines, power tools, projection TVs, projectors, rechargeable batteries (no alkaline), scanners, servers, shredders, software, and stereo equipment. The following items can

also be taken: tablets, iPads, tape drives, tape recorders, telephones, typewriters, TVs, VCR, DVD players, video/ audio tapes, video cameras, video game players, and satellite receivers. Business and institutional electronics will not be accepted at this event, however they may call any of the sponsors for other recycling options. There will be a $10 fee for microwave ovens, but all other residential items listed above will be taken at no cost to the consumers. TVs with broken glass tubes will not be accepted. As of January 2012, Illinois residents and businesses are banned from disposing of computers and other electronics with their regular garbage collection service. Instead, these devices must be taken to a registered

recycler. This law keeps toxins and reusable materials out of local landfills while conserving natural resources and creating jobs in the recycling industry. Secure Recycling Services is a registered processor of electronic waste in Illinois. They refurbish or recycle the materials in a secure and environmentally responsible manner. Secure Recycling Services recently acquired independent R2 Certification (Responsible Recycling) to verify their recycling procedures. The use of the site for this event will be provided by the Richter Family Trust.

The Ogle County Emergency Telephone System Board Members would like to honor the men and women of the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office and Rochelle Police Department Communications Center. The Telecommunicators are the true First Responder. They are the voice that those in need hear first. They are the ones that gather the information in order to provide the necessary response to the callerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency. They are the people who can â&#x20AC;&#x153;calm the stormâ&#x20AC;? during this stressful time. They will provide information necessary to help the caller help themselves of the victim. They are the voice that will guide you. This call may only last seconds or it could be much longer, and they will be there with you. It takes a very special person to be a 9-1-1 Telecommunicator. They have to be able to think quickly, multi-task between phones, radios and computers. At times they have to be stern, other times soft, but all the time empathetic. These people give up holidays with their families, weekends during the summer, and gatherings with family and friends. They work crazy schedules, 12 hour shifts, often eating warm food that is now cold, and cold food that is now warm. To each and every one of you, we tip our hearts and our hearts and say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you.â&#x20AC;? Chairman Donald DeWall, Forreston Fire Department Vice Chairman Lt. Randy Hilliard, Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office Secretary Sandy Beitel, Ogle County E9-1-1 Coordinator Chief Galen Bennett, Byron Fire Department Assistant Chief Rick Mott, Lynn Scott Rock Fire Department Ed Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, Ogle County ETSB Supervisor Sandy Sullivan, Rochelle Police Department Sgt. Sam Thomas, Illinois State Police Captain Cory Tveit, Stillman Valley Fire Department Marty Typer, Ogle County Board When you call 9-1-1 in your moment of need whether it be because of a car accident, your house or field is on fire, your child has been hurt, or you home has been broken into, you expect someone to answer your call for help. On your worst day imaginable you are looking for that calm and reassuring voice on the other end of the line to tell you everything is going to be okay and help is on the way. Who is that person on the other end of the line? They are known as telecommunicators, 9-1-1 dispatchers, or communication specialists. They are highly-trained professionals who are employed in public safety communications. They not only answer your 9-1-1 call but make sure the officers, first responders, firefighters, and EMS personnel are informed of all necessary information pertaining to an emergency call and make sure they are safe while handling these emergencies. They also give pre-arrival, life-saving instructions to callers in need. In Ogle County we have two public safety answering points known as PSAPs. One

is located at the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office where they answer all wireless 9-1-1 calls for the county, landline 9-1-1 calls for all areas in the county except Rochelle, and several non-emergency phone lines as well. The second is at the Rochelle Police Department where they answer the landline 9-1-1 calls for Rochelle, handle any overflow calls from the county and also answer nonemergency phone lines. Rochelle Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PSAP also serves as a backup center if something was ever to happen to the PSAP at the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and the reverse is true as well. At the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and the Rochelle Police Department, telecommunicators not only answer the many phone lines that come into the center, they also dispatch police, fire, and EMS to calls for service. Within the county there are 19 different fire and ambulance agencies, five full-time law enforcement agencies, and three part-time law enforcement agencies all dispatched by the Ogle County telecommunicators. The Rochelle Police Department telecommunicators dispatch for the city of Rochelle and Rochelle Fire along with the Ogle-Lee fire departments. They also serve as a backup for Ogle County and have the capability to dispatch any of the fire and ambulance agencies in the county if needed. Telecommunicators receive extensive training and must have many traits and skills including being multitask oriented. They have to answer phones, answer radio channel traffic, monitor multiple radio frequencies, and enter data into multiple computer screens. This occurs simultaneously. While performing these tasks they must remain calm, nonjudgmental, and empathetic. April 13-19 was National Telecommunicator week. During this week we recognized our telecommunicators for their commitment, hard work, and service to public safety.
