Board proceeds with TIF district By Vinde Wells Editor Approximately two dozen people turned out Tuesday night to attend a public meeting about a proposed second tax increment financing (TIF) district being considered by the Mt. Morris Village Board. Greg Crowe from MSA Professional Services, Champaign, told the crowd that the public meeting was required because 74 houses lie within the proposed TIF district. He said the 15 block area meets TIF requirements as a blighted and conservation area. The proposed new TIF district would include an area along Ill. 64 from Sullivanâ€™s Foods to Seminary Avenue, then south three blocks to Center Street, then east two blocks to McKendrie Avenue and north two blocks to Main Street. The proposed TIF also includes the area between Ill. 64 and the railroad tracks to McKendrie Avenue and then
north to include Witmerâ€™s elevators. It adjoins the villageâ€™s first TIF district, which was established approximately 10 years ago, and so far has brought in little income or development. â€œThe village is looking to spur redevelopment in those areas,â€? Crowe said. Mt. Morris resident Bruce Obendorf, who is a member of the Oregon School Board and said he was representing Kable News, asked how the TIF would affect tax bills. Crowe said the amount of the taxes paid will not change. He said the base equalized assessed value (EAV) for properties will be set this year if the TIF district is approved. That amount is â€œfrozenâ€? for the duration of the TIF, usually 23 years. Taxing bodies then draw taxes from that frozen EAV, not from any increase in the EAV over the time period of the TIF. Taxpayers in the TIF, Turn to A3

Damage needs to be fixed on statue By Vinde Wells Editor Repairs for Ogle Countyâ€™s best-loved statue canâ€™t begin soon enough. Frank Rausa, Sterling, who is heading up the effort to repair the 103-year-old world renowned icon, said Tuesday that testing last fall and this spring shows that the Black Hawk statue is in worse shape than was originally feared. â€œWith all the testing that we did we found the damage is a lot worse than we thought,â€? he said. â€œWe are hopeful that we will get started [with repair work] this summer.â€? Orange fence went up early this week around the base of the concrete statue that overlooks the Rock River at Lowden State Park. The fence, Rausa said, is there partly to protect visitors in case pieces of the statue fall off. He said he is in the process of scheduling a press conference soon to outline the extent of the damage and the plan for repairing and restoring the statue. Over the years due to time and weather conditions, the statue has developed cracks, and large pieces of its concrete surface have dislodged. The folded arms of the 50-foot monolith have been especially affected. Large chunks have fallen out of the elbow of the right arm and from underneath the left arm. A team of experts spent nearly a week in October

wall struck Jones in the leg and she was transported by Mt. Morris ambulance to KSB Hospital, Dixon. White said Hitchcock told him she thought she passed out just as she was driving into a handicapped parking spot in
front of the store. He said the car traveled through the foyer wall and into the front doors where it came to rest. Hitchcock was not injured. The accident remains under investigation.
Police: no sign of black bear near camp p.m., Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said he and deputies patrolled the area but could not confirm the sighting. â€œWe checked the area and found nothing,â€? Harn said. â€œIâ€™m not 100 percent sure it really was [a bear]. We havenâ€™t had any other sightings.â€?
He said the woman said she first saw the bear on the side of Ill. 64 west of Mt. Vernon Road, and then it ran into a nearby field. In recent months a black bear has been sighted in JoDaviess and Stephenson Counties. More recently one has been photographed in backyards in the Rockton
area. Harn said a bear was videotaped Tuesday still in the Rockton area. â€œSo it couldnâ€™t have been that one,â€? he said. The report of the bear sent campers at Rock River Christian Camp, 16486 Ill. Turn to A3

It draws thousands of visitors each year. The statue is under the jurisdiction of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). Rausa is a member of the Friends of the Black Hawk Statue, an organization that has been working to secure funding for the repairs. He said that, ironically, federal grants for restoration projects dried up about the
time the statue was approved for the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. Rausa said earlier this year that the price tag for the study and repairs had risen to $700,000 and could go even higher. More than half the money already raised for the project came from a $350,000 grant the IDNR received from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
The rest came from donations, as well as funds raised during the annual Oregon Trail Days festival held at Lowden Park since 2010. A large contributor was the Jeffris Family Foundation, Janesville, Wis., which gave a $150,000 matching grant. Recently the Chicago Black Hawks hockey team got on board with what Rausa said is a sizable donation, although he declined to specify how much.

This yearâ€™s celebration will open with the Let Freedom Ring queen and court being crowned on Wednesday, July 2 just prior to the regular Wednesday night Kable Band concert and ice cream social. The Lil Miss and Mister Firecracker contest will take place prior to the queen crowning and the silent auction will be open for inspection.

TIF district is designed to promote redevelopment From A1 however, pay taxes on the EAV with its increases. The amount of taxes from the EAV increases (above the frozen level) go into a fund to be spent only on the TIF district. Money accumulated in the TIF fund can be spent infrastructure within the district, such as sidewalks, streets, water and sewer, public parking lots, and in some cases, demolition and site preparation, as
well as other aspects of redevelopment. â€œThe impact hopefully will be a more dynamic business community,â€? said trustee Jon Murray. Planning Commission member Jerry Stauffer said this is a good time to establish a TIF because property values are low and likely to increase, creating more revenues in the TIF fund. A second TIF district, including the area where the store is located, was one of
several incentives requested by Scott Sullivan, one of the owners of Sullivanâ€™s Foods, to build a new store in Mt. Morris. However, the TIF district was not part of the final agreement with Sullivanâ€™s approved by the village board May 27. Crowe said a vote by the village board on the TIF district will not come before August because several steps must be followed. A Joint Review Board,
made up of representatives of all the affected taxing bodies, must be established. Taxing bodies affected are

The meal consists of eggs, meats, fruits and of course, the famous homemade cinnamon rolls. The breakfast was a popular activity during last yearâ€™s festival with more than 200 visitors.
â€œThe room reminds you of an old dining hall that you would eat meals in when you went to camp,â€? Said Donna Mann, committee member. â€œThis dining hall fixes amazing homemade meals and has one of the best views of the Rock River in all of Ogle County.â€? Cost of the breakfast is $12 per person, children ages 3-10 are $5 and children under 2 are free.
This does not include the cost of Festival entry which is $7. Children 6 and under are free. Parking is at the festival parking lot at the intersection of North Daysville Road and Park Road.

Wine sales back for 2014 Trail Days In celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Oregon Trail Days Festival and the start of the restoration of the Black Hawk Statue, the festival committee is bringing back the sales of the Black Hawk Wine. Black Hawk Red and Black Hawk White will be available for purchase at the Eagles Nest and White Pines Inn for a limited time period. The wine was created and bottled by Haileyâ€™s Winery and Vineyard in Byron. â€œWine sales in 2010 were very popular and we thought it would be a great product
to bring back for the 5th anniversary of the festival, not to mention the celebration of the fact that over $750,000 was raised to restore the statue,â€? said committee member Beth Henderson. Engineers and architects have been taking samples and measurements of the 103 year old statue for several months. â€œAt this point we donâ€™t know at what stage restoration will be on the statue during the festival,â€? said event manager, Amy Trimble, â€œbut we are hoping to be able to incorporate the restoration into the event. At
Prizes are added to festivalâ€™s 50/50 raffle
Theyâ€™re calling it the Oregon Trail Days 50/50 Plus 10 and the pluses are impressive. One lucky winner will go away with a lot of money and 10 more winners will go away with some great prizes including four tickets to a Chicago Blackhawks game next season. In an effort to sell more tickets and raise more money for the festival and the Black Hawk Statue the committee went out and gathered some really great extras to be included in the drawing. Prizes are: 1st hockey tickets; 2nd one year family pass to Nash Recreation Center; 3rd faux bronze statue of Black Hawk; 4th free night at Harmony Hills B&B; 5th two massages at White Pines Inn Spa; 6th Oregon Trail Days print; 7th two bottles of Blackhawk Wine, glass & wine rack; 8th $100 gift card to Merlinâ€™s; 9th $100 gift card to Eagles Nest; and 10th $50 gift card to Blackhawk Steak Pit. Tickets are being sold now and will be sold up until 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 20. The winning tickets will be chosen at 4 p.m. at the
festivalâ€™s information booth in Lowden State Park. Cost of the tickets is $5/ ticket or 5 for $20. The winner will receive a cash prize equal to 50% of gross ticket sales or one of the Plus 10 prizes. The winner need not be present to win. Tickets are currently being sold at Merlinâ€™s, Shell, Eagles Nest, Union Savings Bank, Sharkyâ€™s, Ten Pennies, Snyderâ€™s, Baslerâ€™s Ace Hardware, Shortcut Barber Shop and Breakers. Tickets will also be available during the festival July 19-20. â€œThe great thing about a 50/50 raffle is everyoneâ€™s a winner,â€? said raffle chairman, Angie Good. â€œThe festival gets money to help pay for its expenses, the statue gets money for the restoration, one lucky winner gets a lot of money, 10 winners get some great prizes and those who donâ€™t win have the satisfaction of knowing that they helped a great cause.â€?

This yearâ€™s theme is â€œAutumn on Super Heroesâ€?. â€œWeâ€™ve been busy trying to finalize everything for this yearâ€™s parade,â€? said Marseyne Snow, chairman of the event. â€œWe will have several returning crowd favorites back this year as well as some new entries.â€? The South Shore Drill Team has already been booked and will also perform a postparade show on Jefferson Street after the main parade. â€œThe post parade show was very popular last year so we decided to have it again,â€?

the very least we will have historians at the parking area explaining the history of Black Hawk and Lorado Taft as visitors ride by on one of our tractor pulled hay racks.â€? In 2010 when the committee decided to sell wine as a fundraiser they felt that it would be very important to have a wine that was made as close to Oregon as possible. The committee thought that â€œlocally madeâ€? would add to the unique aspects of the festival and help sell more wine. Haileyâ€™s Winery in Byron was a perfect match. The label for the wine was also locally created and depicts the logo that the festival has adopted, a portrayal of the real Black Hawk and the Lorado Taft sculpture of Black Hawk. The painting was created by local resident, Dean Beacon. Each bottle of wine will sell for $20 and proceeds from the sale of the wine will
go towards festival expenses and to a fund that will help with long term maintenance of the Black Hawk Statue. The festival is being held on July 19-20 and features live entertainment, Native American dancers, drummers, a variety of and artisans, a rowdy cowboy show, 5k Rugged River Run, Pioneer and Mountain Men demonstrations, breakfast at Clare McGee will visit the Rock River Center, 810 S.

How can Harn hold three jobs? Dear Editor, This message was sent to Kim Gouker, county board chairman. Really?! How can Mike Harn truly do “justice” to the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department holding two other full-time jobs: Forreston mayor [village president] and Forrestville Valley School maintenance coordinator?? The budget could be cut more if you, as county board chairman, refuse to pay him full-time wages. This man and the county board have lost all ethics allowing him to continue as “Sheriff” (and I use the capital letter loosely there). Has Ogle County not learned from the City of Dixon?! All positions must have “checks and balances.” The county board must be held accountable. Respectfully submitted, Connie Karper Oregon

We had over 100 entries, including Leaf River United Methodist Church, first place theme float, and the Leaf River Busy Beavers 4-H Club, second place theme float; Leaf River Lions Club, first place non-conforming float, Dixon Evening Lions Club, second place nonconforming float, and Pecatonica Downtown, third place non-conforming float; Angie’s Aquatic Atrium, first place commercial float; Mike Campbell’s 1967 Camaro, first place vintage car, and Andy Stark’s 1972 Corvette, second place vintage car; Carriage Springs Farm, first place horse hitch, and Freeport Chapter VietNow, second place horse hitch; and the Ogle County 4-H Horse Drill Team, first place equestrian. We hope everyone enjoyed the parade as it made it’s way through the community. Laura Werner Leaf River Summer Daze Committee

Dear Editor, Lifeline wishes to acknowledge their appreciation of all who were involved with USPS National Association of Letter Carriers food drive May 10. We thank all of the Oregon postal employees, the Oregon and Chana communities,
the Community Bank of Oregon, Shell Station and Oregon Fire Department for their advertising, Pizza Hut for the pizza donations, the Church of God for the facility for sorting and storage, the Boy Scouts and our Lifeline Board and volunteers. 1,650 pounds of food was donated. This will help us for several months. Thanks, to all for your support. Sharon Wallace Lifeline Board
Annual garage sale is a success Dear Editor, The Chana School Museum’s Annual Benefit Sale was a huge success at the Oregon Coliseum. Volunteers worked for three days receiving and setting up before the sale days. The Coliseum’s upper floor was full of large and small items galore. There were complete rooms of furniture offered for sale. There were fine works of art, upscale handbags, tools, tires, beautiful glassware, live plants, clothes for all ages, and one of a kind items thanks to all the donations from the community. The community enjoyed the convenience of the Coliseum. People saw the sale signs and came to find a treasure or just have fun looking at all the many things. Several individuals came to the sale more than once or
twice. The sale benefited the Chana School Museum and its programs. However, after the sale was over, other community organizations benefited from the donations as well. This year, items went to the local nursing homes, the Rock River Center, Life Line, and finally the Leydig Center. All these not-for-profit organizations picked items that they could use. Thank you to all those folks who donated their unwanted items to this cause. The Chana School Foundation would like to thank its volunteers for all their hard work and dedication for this huge sale. First, the heavy haulers, Ray Gruber and Gary Stauffer, used their vehicles and trailers to “pick up items” and deliver to the Coliseum. Their ability to move and haul large items was invaluable to get the sale ready. Then there was “the team of ladies” who unpacked, organized, and rearranged items for two and half days. Team members were Donna Gruber, Carol Politsch, Cynde Wennmaker, Earlyne Warmolts, Jane Bale, Diane Lillie, Linda Knigge, Linda Hoffman, Jennifer Kaffenbarger, Sherry Piros, and me. The team grew this year with Denise Toms, Ellen Mason, and Lyn Hunter also learning to organize and help people buying items.
Mark Herman and Phil Bratta joined in the labor of reorganizing and packing up items at the end of the sale. Skyler Carlson and Conner Young, local students, earned community service hours by helping to carry items, helping people get to and from the building, and other valuable tasks. A big thank you to all who made this event possible and donated to this event. The City of Oregon supported this event by allowing the event to take place at the Coliseum. Thank you all! Connie Stauffer Oregon
Hard to choose what to attend Dear Editor, My, there are so many varied activities going on in our area, it is almost difficult to select which to attend. Aside from the regular activities, such as quilting, carving, whittling, book club, Line dance, cards, stump jumping, Situation Room (Old News), Pot luck Birthdays, Sing Along with Margo Ackland prior to the lunch, etc., some new and special programs were presented. Europe on Bikes by this couple who spent three months and covered 1,350 miles through France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary was excellent with brochures, maps, and great pictures
including people they met, places they stayed, their tent, and bags which were never tampered with nor stolen (as several people in the audience said, if it was in the USA, they probably would not live to tell the tale.) Shame but true. This was presented in conjunction with the Oregon Public Library. On June 1 at 2 p.m. at the Mt. Morris Library, Pastor Steve Erickson who studied and covered many investigations of JFK’s assassination with an excellent handout, books, and theories. Many band concerts are presented regularly at the Mt. Morris bandshell including Kable Concert Band under Warren Reckmeyer since 1956 on Wednesdays and other concerts I believe on Fridays. On Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14, Rock River Center is conducting a New and Used Sale, countless items of interest, priced right. On Friday at 2 p.m., June 20, a celebration of Jack Scott’s life at Rock River Center, where he and his wife Phyllis had many friends. Art classes are held at RRC at 12:30 Fridays as well as computer classes for various stages and programs depending on your choice and times. On June 16, Clarence McGee from Canada will perform at RRC 10 a.m. on the guitar and banjo, sing along fun, come. Anna A. Hatzipanagiotis Mt. Morris

Breast Yard Sale reached $100,000 in total sales By Vinde Wells Editor The Breast Yard Sale in Town reached a significant goal last week when it topped the $100,000 mark. Proceeds from the annual sale go to the American Cancer Society. â€œOgle County is on the map,â€? said organizer Karen Virnoche-Brown, a cancer survivor. â€œWe have just paid for one researcher grant by reaching $100,000. Last week,
we made our $100,000 goal from a repeat customer from Stevens Point, Wis. She had no idea how close we were, made her purchase with $2 to go and said keep the change. It was $8.â€? Virnoche-Brown and her husband Jim have held the sale for 12 years in their barn at 1194 Mud Creek Rd., Oregon. The sale continues through Sunday, June 15 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., rain or shine. While reaching the
$100,000 mark is a milestone for the sale, itâ€™s not her ultimate goal, VirnocheBrown said. â€œWhat does this mean? It means a lot of volunteer dedication, generous donations of merchandise, outstanding publicity and great customers that want cancer to end,â€? she said. â€œEven though we hit our target, everyoneâ€™s real goal is to find a cure for cancer. We did it and still have time to reach higher. The barn is full and we need your support.â€?

John Lupton of the Historic Preservation Commission for Illinois Supreme Court history visited the Eagle’s Nest Art Gallery on May 22. The Oregon Library has two models of Illinois Supreme Court statuary. He came to view and photograph the two Charles F. Mulligan working models that Mulligan used to create the large scale monuments. The two models are titled: “Law and Knowledge” and “Justice and Power.” Both large completed sculptures today flank the north entrance to the Supreme Court Building in Springfield. They complement the exterior architecture of this building that was dedicated Feb. 4, 1908. Mulligan, the sculptor, worked with Lorado Taft on
Freedom Lutheran presented $297.32 to Serenity Home during their worship service on May 25. “This money is a generous gift,” said Lynn Knodle, Serenity Home executive director . “We are very thankful for it and will use it to purchase a blanket warmer to keep our residents and their families as comfortable as possible during the coldest months of the year.” The money came from two sources. The bulk of it. $272.07, came from what Freedom calls their “noisy offering.” At each worship service, the children of Freedom roam around the congregation during the offering with

smoke and coal dust removed. For the next year, the justices are holding court elsewhere in Illinois. On his visit to Oregon, Lupton also examined the bust of Justice James H. Cartwright who was a native of Oregon. His father Barton Cartwright was an early Methodist circuit riding minister and his mother was Chloe Benedict, who taught at the first log cabin school in Lafayette Grove. James H. Cartwright was appointed to a vacancy in 1895, then was elected two more terms and had been chosen to run unopposed for a third term when he died in 1924. Lupton, a court archivist, said that Cartwright also had the honor of being elected Chief Justice of the Court five times during his 29 year tenure.

Bad weather, Pleasant Plains end state title run Tigers second after shortened game on June 7 By Andy Colbert Reporter Inclement weather put an end to Byron’s hopes for a state championship in baseball, but the real culprit in the 2A IHSA title game was an opportunistic Pleasant Plains team. Trailing 7-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Tigers had the bases loaded with two outs when the infield tarp came out. They would never get a chance to cut into the lead as the rain kept falling and four hours later; the IHSA ruled the game to be complete. Actually, the final score became 7-1 in favor of Pleasant Plains, based upon five full innings being played. “I wasn’t real happy. The field was still playable,” Byron coach Ray Bielskis said. “I felt they should have at least let us finish the inning. We had been playing for the last half hour in the same conditions.” Considering Byron (36-6) was senior-laden and Pleasant Plains (31-11) was primarily freshmen, sophomore and juniors, it seemed to reason that the Tigers would have the edge in experience. That was not the case, as the Tigers uncharacteristically committed five errors and the aggressive base-running Cardinals took every advantage of each one. “It’s the worst game we had in the post season,” Bielskis said. “We make those plays (errors) in practice.” Byron’s only run also came on an error. In the bottom of the first inning, designated hitter Ben Reibel hit a routine pop up to right field that bounced off the glove of Aaron Hand. Austin Carlson, who had singled up the middle and advanced to third on a steal and fielder’s choice, scored to give the Tigers an early 1-0 lead. “At that time, I liked our chances,” Bielskis said. “It gave us a run in what I thought would be a lowscoring game.” In the top of the second, Alex Jacobs doubled to left field to start the inning out for
Pleasant Plains. Pinch runner Daultin Settles scored on a sacrifice fly to tie the game 1-1. With two outs and no one on base, it appeared that’s the way the score would remain. Daniel Lowe even began walking off the mound after he thought he retired No. 8 hitter Chad Weller on a third strike, Instead Weller, the opposing pitcher, drew a walk. “I thought it was a strike,” Bielskis said. “That was tough to take.” Then Daulton Nibbe hit a hopper down the third-base line for a single. With runners at first and second, leadoff batter Cole Hamilton had an RBI single. Another run came in when freshman Cole Greer, the coach’s son, hit a bloop single over Tyler Nunez at shortstop. “That inning changed the tempo of the game and we lost our momentum,” Bielskis said. Lowe finally got the strikeout he wanted, but the Cardinals almost batted through the order and held a 3-1 lead. That’s where the scored stayed at in the top of the third inning, as catcher Jack Fleeger and Nunez combined to nab a Pleasant Plains runner attempting to steal second. Byron had its best scoring opportunity in the third inning, as Base Byers and Nunez led off with consecutive singles. With the heart of batting order up and no one out, the Tigers were poised to cut into the lead. The speedy Austin Carlson tried to advance both runners on a bunt attempt that barely went foul. Facing two strikes, he hit a sharp grounder right at the shortstop, resulting in a 6-4-3 double play. “If that bunt stays fair, we probably have the bases loaded and nobody out,” Bielskis said. “You can’t fault Austin at all. He’s an all-conference player and been great all year for us.” Byers advanced to third, but Fleeger popped up to end the inning. In the top of the fourth with two outs and no one on base, the Cardinals struck again. Nibbe, the No.9 hitter, singled the left, stole second and advanced the third on a throwing error. Hamilton
brought him home on a shot down the third-base line and lead went to 4-1. “It seemed like they were getting all their runs after two outs,” Bielskis said. Tyler Rowland, the only non-senior in the starting line-up for Byron, singled through the right side with two outs in the bottom of the fourth. Nathan Peterson reached base on an error and again, it looked like the Tigers had a chance to score. A fly out ended the inning, though. “It seemed like they were getting all the breaks and we weren’t getting any,” Bielskis said. It was still anybody’s game going into the fifth inning, but the Tigers began to selfdestruct. After Lowe’s fifth strikeout of the game to start the inning, the second Cardinal batter was hit by a pitch. Alex Edwards then hit a hard-to-field single to Nunez. A throwing error by the shortstop resulted in Edwards advancing to second and Jacob Cronister scoring. Trailing 5-1, Bielskis brought in Dennis Reedy to relieve Lowe. “Dan wasn’t as effective as he’s been. They were hitting his fastball,” Bielskis said. “If he had made it through the fifth, we were going to bring in Peterson.” On Reedy’s first pitch, more problems ensued. T.J. Steinwart bunted and what should have been a routine out turned into two more runs scored. Two infield throwing errors not only allowed Edwards to score, but Steinwart also crossed the plate. Suddenly it was 7-1 and the prospects did not look good for the Tigers, both from a game and weather perspective. The rain started to fall in the bottom of the fifth inning and Pleasant Plains knew they would need to retire the side as quickly as possible to make the game official. And, that’s exactly what Weller did, throwing two strikeouts and also benefitting from a nifty foul-ball basket catch by first baseman Dylan Bee. With the rain beginning to come down steadily and fans (843 announced) scrambling to drier areas, Byron held the Cardinals scoreless in the top
Tigers beat Westmont in semis Byron advanced to the title game with an impressive 6-2 semifinal win over Westmont on a beautiful evening at Dozer Field in Peoria. Even though Byron trailed 2-0 after three inning, the Tigers and pitcher Nate Peterson were the dominant team. It was just a matter of
time before they took control and Jack Fleeger ensured that with a two-run double in the top of the sixth inning to for a 5-2 lead. Another run scored on a throwing error to make it 6-2, a score that held up. Base Byers had two hits and two runs for the Tigers.
Byron had another 3-run inning in the fourth. Balks by Westmont reliever Austin Luehman sent two runners home and Austin Carlson drove the other run in. Peterson (13-0) went the distance, giving up only one earned run, while striking out 10 and allowing five hits.

of the sixth. In Byron’s half of what would turn out to be an unofficial inning, Fleeger beat out a grounder for a single, Lowe singled to right and Rowland walked. A fielder’s choice scored Fleeger and Garbutt was hit by a pitch to load the bases. With the hot-hitting Byers (3-for-4 in the tourney) on deck and the top of the order to follow, Pleasant Plains made a pitching change. “That pitcher had pitched the day before and I liked our chances against him. I’ll put the top of order up against anyone,” Bielskis said. It was then that Craig Anderson of the IHSA ordered the game into a weather delay at 3:22. “In my mind, I knew it was over when the they put the tarp on,” Bielskis said. “That hit me hard, but I tried to keep my spirits up for our players.” The game was originally scheduled for 5:30 pm, but was moved up to a 1:40 because of the weather forecast. The third-place game between Westmont and Freeburg was not played. “We didn’t find out until 11:30 that morning our game was being moved up,” Bielskis said. “I wish they could have let us know the night before. They (IHSA) met until midnight discussing how to handle the weather. If we had bad weather coming, why couldn’t the 2A title game been played before the 1A third-place game.” With the second-place finish, the Tigers added another state baseball trophy to what has been one of the premier small-school baseball programs in northern Illinois. “This group will go down as one of the greatest teams in school history,” Bielskis said. With the title, Pleasant Plains, improved upon last year’s runner-up finish when it lost to Lisle 10-1 in the championship game.

Sports Column More sports in the summer, good or bad? By Andy Colbert Reporter Well, just when one thinks the sports year is over, it is really just beginning. Less than a week after hosting graduation, the Blackhawk Center was the site for a 38-team varsity/ fresh-soph girls basketball tournament. It’s not just the girls either. The Oregon boys were at a similar event in Forreston. In July, schools all over Illinois will have football camps of some sort. Volleyball seems like it is played year round. Softball and baseball club teams
begin the prime part of their seasons, with soccer not far behind. The list goes on and on of high school sports that have a season beyond their season. Good or bad? I don’t know. Part of me says this is pushing way too much sport on a kid. Another part of me says it is good that kids are pursuing healthy occupations in the summer. Getting out of the house and doing something athletic beats sitting in front of a computer or hanging out on the proverbial street corner. However, a major problem with summer sports is that an “arms race” mentality has developed. The coach may not believe in it, but if he or she doesn’t have their team take part in it, they will fall behind other teams that are doing it.
I’ve known coaches that feel summer sports are a burden, but they almost feel obligated to do them. Oldtimers have also said they are thankful that summer practices weren’t around when they coached. And, let’s be sure to make the distinction between high school and club sports. High school sports have certain IHSA guidelines to follow, such as contact days, for the summer. Club sports can do whatever they want and are a completely separate entity. So, this discussion deals primarily with the high school product. Are kids pressured into participating in summer sports by a coach? Maybe an athlete feels they will lose favor with the coach if they ignore summer practices? How do parents feel about
their kids being asked to take part in summer sports? Does it disrupt family plans or is it something they embrace because they have made sports a focal part of their lives? The way society looks at youth sports has changed so much over the years. Decades ago, it was inconceivable that summer football practice take place. After all, why would that be necessary if young men were getting plenty of exercise bailing hay? Back in the day, the main summer sport was swimming and for real excitement, jumping off the high dive. Or, a little pick-up baseball perhaps. Now, adults lay everything out for kids in an organized fashion. Is this being done for the kid’s benefit or is it being done to be in control?
Again, I don’t know. These are just questions I am posing. Mark Nehrkorn and myself have a handful of junior high and high school kids that are pole vaulting this summer. Am I part of the problem, part of the solution or neither of the above? Or, since pole vaulting is an individual event, should it be looked at differently than a team sport in regard to summer practice? And, should be there some slack given to spring sports because the weather is so bad in the spring that the optimal practice conditions are in the summer? Many questions can be raised about summer practice for high school sports and this is one of the few times that I am not sure where I stand on an issue. As columnists, we’re supposed to offer
opinions. Today, though, I’ll take a pass. Speaking of passes, it’s probably not too early for you football coaches to start thinking about the 7-on-7 summer passing leagues.

Public input to be sought for Ogle’s waste management plan First meeting is Wed., June 18 The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Plan is due to be updated this year and several public meetings will be held to allow public participation in this process.
The Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act requires each Illinois County to prepare, adopt and implement a 20-year municipal waste management plan. Under this law, the plans must also be updated and reviewed every five years. The first public meeting will take place on Wednesday, June

The original Ogle County Solid Waste Plan was adopted in 1991. Two subsequent five-year updates were completed in 1998, and 2003. The current Solid Waste Management Plan (Ten Year Update) is available to be viewed or downloaded at http://www.oglecounty.org/
departments/solid-wastemanagement/resources/ or copies are available at the Solid Waste Management Department in Oregon. The purpose of doing the solid waste management plan update is to review the recommendations and tasks in the existing plan, discuss various waste management options,
consider suggestions from the advisory committee, and to propose new recommendations to the Ogle County Board for the 20 Year Update.

Dumping may be demise of countyâ€™s recycling stations Recent illegal dumping incidents at Ogle County drop-off recycling stations have prompted officials to reconsider the program and ask for help from those who use the sites. â€œItems such as tires, construction or remodeling waste, electronics, household garbage, hazardous waste, scrap metal, and other waste are being left in and around the recycling containers, causing added expenses and labor to the programâ€?, said Steve Rypkema, director of the Solid Waste Management Department, in a news release. The large roll-off recycling containers are located at Byron, Forreston, Oregon, Monroe Center, and Rochelle. They are overseen and paid for by the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department. A site in Polo has been provided by Moring Disposal Service at no cost to the City or Ogle County. An additional container provided by Advanced Disposal Services is located at the Orchard Hills Landfill. The containers are intended for those who do not have curbside recycling at their residence, such as apartment dwellers and people who live outside of town where they cannot get curbside recycling. Over the past few months, the number of illegal dumping incidents at these sites have increased so much that continuation of the program is being threatened,â€? Rypkema said. â€œProviding the containers and regular pick up and transportation to the recycling facilities are direct costs to the Department,â€? he said. â€œWe pay the hauling costs each time the containers are emptied and currently receive nothing for the materials. The recyclables collected in the containers currently have
little value, and all of the nonrecyclable items placed in the containers add to the cost. â€œOther waste dumped at the sites costs the department even more to dispose of properly, and with the limited staff we have, it makes it very difficult to maintain the sites. We need the help of those who use the sites to follow the directions and not leave unauthorized waste at the sites.â€? Rypkema said the containers are strictly for household recyclable items including newspaper, flattened cardboard, other paper such as magazines, catalogs, junk mail, and cereal boxes; plastic containers and bottles with the recycling symbols numbered 1-7, except Styrofoam; empty aluminum and steel cans & lids; and empty glass bottles and jars. Items may not be left on the ground or outside of the container. No plastic bags, batteries, electronics, diapers, containers with product left in them, food waste, or other household trash are allowed. Rypkema and the solid waste department staff are asking residents to pick up an instruction sheet from the information boxes located at each site and to strictly adhere to those directions. â€œWe also have a waste disposal and recycling guide on our website or available upon request at the department where residents can find options for disposal or recycling of most types of waste which are not allowed in the drop-off containers. We just donâ€™t want people using the county drop-off recycling sites for stuff they donâ€™t know how to get rid of,â€? said Rypkema. Another problem identified by Rypkema is that businesses are using the containers to recycle. â€œWe like the fact that businesses are wanting to
recycle their waste, but this program is just not designed to handle the volume from businesses and residents,â€? he said. â€œThey must contact their local waste hauling company to get recycling at their place of business. They are not allowed to use the drop-off containers.â€? One of the most frequent complaints to the solid waste department is that the containers are frequently full when residents go to use them. In 2013, over 1.8 million pounds of recyclables were collected through the program. The department has one person who checks on three of the sites, and two part-time people who maintain the sites in Forreston and Rochelle. Sometimes the containers fill up faster than anticipated and scheduling a pickup is based on availability of a driver from the hauling company. Rypkema said. If illegal dumping of waste continues at the sites, security cameras may be installed to deter and catch illegal dumpers. Citations and fines may be imposed for those who dump illegally at the sites. Fines of up to $1,500 can be imposed for open dumping under Illinois law. Residents are asked to help keep up the site by picking up any litter and by reporting any illegal dumping or other problems to the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department at 815-732-4020.
