ELECTION UPDATE

He said he has built and maintained an office that has served the county well. Morrow said one his goals when he took office was to increase the level of technology in the state’s attorney’s office and move toward automation of the office to increase efficiency and streamline the flow of information. He said the paramount duty of the state’s attorney is to “safeguard public safety”. “As a result, my office has vigorously prosecuted violent offenders and those who prey on the citizens of Ogle County. These offenders need to be punished and incarcerated to protect the public,” he said. “We also recognize that there are some offenders who commit non-violent offenses due to substance addiction. These offenders require a different approach.” Morrow said that In 2009, he was a part of the founding team of the Ogle County New Horizons Drug. “Since our Drug Court was started, this program has helped non-violent drug addicted individuals who have committed crimes get their lives on track and become productive and Ogle County State’s Attorney Eric Morrow announces his re-election effort on the steps law abiding citizens.

Ogle County State’s Attorney Eric Morrow announced his campaign for re-election on the steps of the historic Ogle County Courthouse on Oct. 1. Morrow, a Republican, was first elected to the position in 2014 to fill out the term of John “Ben” Roe who was elected Resident Circuit Judge. Morrow was re-elected Ogle County State’s Attorney in 2016. After being introduced by retired Ogle County Resident Circuit Judge Michael Mallon, Morrow, delivered the following remarks to those assembled on the east steps of the courthouse in Oregon. “It is truly an honor to once again have a retired Resident Circuit Judge of Ogle County and Chief Judge of the 15th judicial circuit announce my candidacy for re-election as your Ogle County States Attorney. I am humbled that Judge Mallon has again agreed to Chair my campaign, and is working very hard on my behalf,” Morrow said. He said six years ago he shared his belief that the state’s attorney is a critical officeholder for any county in the State of Illinois. “I believed that he or she should reflect the values of the community that they serve. That belief still rings true today and during the nearly five years that I have served as your State’s Attorney I have reflected those values through honesty, dedication and hard work.” he said.

EVENT FOLLOW UP

Weather, crowd turn out fine for AOP festival Streets were filled with people on Sunday for the popular Harvest Time Parade BY EARLEEN HINTON ehinton@oglecountynews.com In a year of weird weather, Mother Nature did her best to steady the course Oct. 5-6 and shined on the 49th Autumn on Parade festival—well for the most part. Visitors arrived early Saturday with umbrellas and rain coats well in hand to handle the predicted all-day showers, but the heavy rain waited until late afternoon. Sunday was smooth sailing, as thousands of visitors streamed into town for the festival and to watch the ever-popular Harvest Time Parade that started at 1 p.m. “We were very lucky with the weather,” said Autumn on Parade President Marseyne Snow. “That’s the one thing we can’t control so we were very glad to see sunshine and not much rain over the weekend.” The nice weather helped boost foot traffic for the 180 vendor booths that surrounded the Ogle County Courthouse. “We received positive comments from the craft vendors, overall. With the relocation of several booths, we were pleased with the traffic flow,” said Lisa Boehle, Farmers Market and Craft Fair committee member. Festival organizers had to re-work placement of the booths due to construction of the new Ogle County Jail, currently being constructed in the 100 block of South Sixth Street. The all-volunteer committee also revamped its Kid Zone for 2019, moving it into the Oregon Coliseum and making it free. “The Fun Zone Carnival was new this year and we got lots of comments about how much fun the kids had with it,” Snow said. “The parents were appreciative that it was lots of free fun for the kids.” Visitors also made sure they visited the AOP Food Court, which benefits local not-for-profits. “People were enjoying all the selections at the food court and eating out in the nice weather,” said Snow. Since the festival has no admission charge, crowd estimates are not available. But Snow said Sunday’s crowd was one of the largest in recent years. “We are not sure how many people attended the parade, but several people commented that they had not seen cars parked so far away as this year,” Snow said. “We had 15 bands/drill teams in addition to the South Shore drill team which helps bring a lot of people to town.” Perfect running weather early Sunday morning resulted in more than 425 runners taking part in the 5K and Fun Run. “It was another banner year for the AOP 5K. We had approximately 450 runners on what turned out to be a beautiful day. Thank you to all the sponsors and participants for making it

They lived on a farm in Hardin County in poverty. His chores on the farm took priority over school. At the age of 15 he taught school for five years. He then entered the University of Iowa. While working at the Dexter Law Firm in Chicago he took evening courses at the Union College of Law. After admission to the bar, he practiced law in Chicago for about 20 years. His wife, Florence, was the daughter of George Pullman, the railroad car magnate and millionaire. In 1899, Lowden was a professor at Northwestern University in Evanston. He was elected as U.S. Representative in 1906 to fill the unexpired term of Robert R. Hitt who was deceased. He was then re-elected for succeeding terms until 1911. From 1917 to 1921, he was the Governor of Illinois. He vetoed a bill in 1918which would have abolished the death penalty. He was our governor during WWI. He died in 1843 in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 82. The following are named after him in this area: Camp Lowden Boy Scout Camp, Lowden State Park, Lowden Miller State Forest, and Lowden Hall at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.

EDUCATION NEWS

Butterfly garden reborn at Chana Education Center Brian and Michel Williams spent their summer on a special garden transformation project at Chana Education Center. Michel Williams, a former teacher of the school, asked in the spring if there were any outdoor projects in need of some attention on the grounds. A former butterfly garden had become overgrown and was producing more weeds than plants. She enthusiastically took on the garden by clearing out the weeds and old plantings, re-tilling the soil, adding new native plantings, and mulching. Monica Putnam and Jim Williams of Hidden Timber Gardens of Chana assisted in choosing plantings that would attract butterflies and other insects, and are drought resistant. “Chana Education Center greatly appreciates the time and effort of Mrs. Williams and her husband, and Hidden Timber Gardens,” said Lynn Kalnins, principal. “Students have been enjoying observing and cataloging the insects that are visiting this Hayden Haye and Hayden Clausen spend time watching insects and tracking plant growth in the new and improved butterfly garden. refreshed space.” Below left is a a photo of the garden before the work.

Oregon defense holds Rock Falls for 14-8 win Hawks record first win of the season BY ERIC INGLES eingles@saukvalley.com Oregon’s defense needed to make a stop with Rock Falls opening a drive near midfield with 2 minutes, 37 seconds to go on Friday at Hinders Field. Rock Falls got a minimal gain on second down, lost that with an illegal motion call, then turned the ball over on downs with two incomplete passes on third and fourth down, the last deflected by Oregon’s Nolan Thomas, preserving a 14-8 win for the Hawks. “Defensive line stayed low and luckily made some plays, caught some breaks,” Oregon coach Nick Schneiderman said. “We obviously made a few more plays than they did at the end.” Rock Falls opened the game in a spread offense, but down 14-0 at the half, reverted back to the power-rushing game out of a wishbone formation. Fullback Noah Schueler had eight carries for 41 yards in the second half alone to finish the game with 73 rushing yards. That power game resulted in a 13-play drive, pulling more than 7 minutes off the clock, but resulted in no points after a dropped pass at the goal line on fourth down. Rock Falls soon got the ball back and put together a nine-play, 45-yard drive to get on the board with 8:17 left in the game. The Rockets mixed in a pass on a third-and-8, as Evan Laws found Cyd Meiners for a 22-yard gain. Another pass to Booker Cross got the ball to the Hawks’ 3, and Laws punched it in on a quarterback keeper two plays later. “That’s the first time we’ve really seen the guys respond the way they should when they’re down,” Rock Falls coach Kevin Parker said. “I think that was a big thing. It might be a loss on the board, but I think it’s a big thing for our program for our kids to learn that when you’re down, you don’t throttle back.” But Rock Falls had two more drives to try to tie or take the lead and could not cash in, getting to the Hawks’ 10 on the second-to-last drive and stalling out at midfield on their final drive. Rock Falls was hampered by two

Oregon’s Breccan Berns runs up the middle for yards against Rock Falls during Oct. 4 action. Photo by Alex T. Paschal/Shaw Media lost fumbles, an interception, and eight penalties for 80 yards. “We just need to keep working hard,” Parker said. “I know it’s a tough one tonight. I think our effort was there, but again, we need to be more disciplined.” Turnovers ended the first two Rock Falls drives of the night. The Rockets got to the Oregon 22-yard line on the first drive before fumbling it away. The second drive reached the Rockets’ 39 before a long pass up the sideline was intercepted by Jacob Milliman. “I saw him throw it up deeper and higher than normally, so I ran back straight,” Milliman said. “It was a lob, so I caught it.” The Hawks made them pay for both. Wylee Rice took the Hawks’ second offensive snap of the game up the middle for a 74-yard touchdown run. After the interception, Oregon went on a four-play, 71-yard

drive that Rice capped off with a 23-yard score. “[Rock Falls] had some penetration and we were able to slide right by,” Schneiderman said. “Once we slid by, there wasn’t anybody left, and we got good chunks. I don’t think we executed great, but we had decent timing as far as our system goes in our power game, and then we had a bit of a jet game going on.” Rice had 100 yards on seven carries and two scores, but went down after turning his ankle in the second quarter and did not return. Without Rice, Oregon quarterback Breccan Berns took the bulk of the carries, and ended the game with 63 yards on 16 rushes. “We had good blocks set up by our halfbacks,” Berns said. “That opened that up.” But the Rock Falls defense clamped down. Oregon opened the second half with an eight-play drive

to get to the Rockets’ 28, but turned it over on downs, in part because Laws deflected a pass from Berns on third-and-8. Both teams saw promising drives end with no points on the board. Rock Falls had a pair of strong drives late in the first half, but an Andrew Herbst deflection of a fourthdown pass stopped one of them, and a string of penalties stopped the other. Laws had connected with Meiners twice and Hayden Lee once to get the ball to the Oregon 33, but a pair of motion calls and a penalty for intentional grounding pushed the Rockets out of range. Oregon had its own promising drive stopped by penalties at the end of the second quarter. Berns connected with Ryker FInch to get the ball to the Rock Falls 25 with 30 seconds left, and another pass to

Paschal/Shaw Media and Ty Brockman (94) had the other counting scores for Newman. Lucas Ely (99) and Grant Koerner (110) rounded out the lineup. Kyle Wolfe, a freshman, had a 45 on the front nine at Silver Ridge, then came home with a 37. “The key was just slowing everything down,” Kyle Wolfe said. “I think I was nervous on the front nine, being at my first regional. I just slowed down, took it one shot at a time, and that really helped me.” Oregon was seventh as a team with a 409 total. Case Sellers (96), Jarrett Dietrich (100), Tanner Clayton (106) and Eddie Buttens (107) had the counting scores for the Hawks. Sellers was in position to possibly advance before taking an 11 on the

par-5 17th hole. It included a ball out of bounds, a whiff, two bunker shots and three putts. A double bogey on the par-4 18th hole sealed Sellers’ fate. Polo was 11th in a 12-team field at 467. Counting scores for the Marcos were by Clay Davis (115), Spencer Scott (115), Cody Buskohl (116) and Denesy Lackland (121). The medalist was defending Class 1A state champion Marcus Smith of Winnebago, who finished with a 2-over-par 74. He had a 39 on the front and a 35 on the back. It wasn’t quite good enough to get the Indians to sectional as a team, as their 355 total was one behind Byron. “The front nine kind of hurt me a

little bit,” Smith said. “The last three holes on the front nine, I bogeyed all three of them. When I got to the back nine, I was a little upset. I told myself I could get through it. It was really windy, but I knew I could do it. I was trying to put my team in a position where they could make it, so I gave it all I got.” Smith will be joined by teammate Tino Lara at the Aquin Sectional. Lara had a 92 and defeated Rockford Christian’s Colin Elsbree in a onehole playoff for the 10th and final individual sectional qualifying spot. Top 3 teams 1. Newman 342, 2. Elgin Academy 344, 3.

half, but that was brought back by a holding call, and Oregon punted a few plays later. On the next drive, the Hawks saw a Garrett Moser run up the middle for a first down wiped out by another holding call. Oregon turned it over on the next play with a fumble, recovered by James.

As scores came trickling in Monday at the Class 1A Oregon Boys Golf Regional at Silver Ridge, it was clear Newman was in pretty good position. The only question was how good. As it turned out, it was really good. The Comets won their second regional title in school history, as their total of 342 strokes was two less than runner-up Elgin Academy. Those teams, plus third-place finisher Byron, which was at 354, punched their ticket to the Aquin Sectional slated for Monday at Park Hills (West) in Freeport. Newman was also a regional champion in 2001 at Byron Hills, as Jamie Curia (71), Ben Hermes (74), Jim Neville (74) and Chase Gillette (83) combined for a 302 total. “It was kind of nerve-wracking, to be honest,” Newman junior Blake Wolfe said of waiting for the team’s fate. “My freshman year, we tied and then missed by one stroke [to Bureau Valley] on a tiebreaker score, so coming into the clubhouse, it’s always nerve-wracking watching those scores get posted.” The Comets are now halfway home to their goal of earning a state tournament berth for the second consecutive season. “That was our goal this whole season, to make it out of regionals and make it out sectionals and go to state as a team,” senior Cody Britt said. “It makes it that much better, to win regional as a team.” Britt led the Comets with a 7-overpar 79. That came on the heels of an 81 last week at the Three Rivers Conference tournament at a gettable Deer Valley Country Club. “I realized after conference I didn’t play up to my whole potential, so I just practiced really hard,” Britt said. “I wanted to play good here.” Kyle Wolfe (82), Blake Wolfe (87)

Top two teams in 1A football to meet in Forreston A

•••

Oregon’s win over Rock Falls shows the fallacy of score comparison. Earlier, Rock Falls beat Dixon by 22 points and Oregon lost to Dixon by 32. Using that data, Rock Falls should have won by 54 points. Instead it was Oregon by six. Many factors go into this. Some teams continue to improve, while others regress. Team morale, such as in Rock Fall’s case, can go down, while other squads maintain mental composure during adversity. After five tough losses, it’s evident that Oregon wasn’t ready to call it quits.

COMMENTARY Andy Colbert

Injuries, the breaks of a game, game miscues and law of averages can also change outcomes. Did anyone expect the Bears to lose to Oakland? In football, anything is possible. Here is another factor to consider. After his team upset NIU in driving rain on Saturday, coach Mike Neu of Ball State said his team was helped by having to practice outdoors in bad weather. Without the relative comfort of a temperature-controlled indoor facility like NIU has, Ball State learned to embrace inclement conditions. Likewise, I recall hearing about the Oklahoma State golf team that would purposely practice in windy conditions to prepare themselves for that type of match play.

of drop off is volleyball. Once again, the NUIC is loaded with heavyweights. Forreston is a respectable 17-5, but lost in straight sets to Dakota, Durand, and Le-Win. There are also some mid-range teams like Polo (10-9-2) that are also quite competitive. With the change in enrollment classifications, Forreston will be in 1A instead of 2A. The Cardinals did catch a break

Speaking of golf, the quality of play at the high school level has gone down. That’s is evident from looking at scores. The rise of high school golf began in the mid 1990s, coinciding with the growth of new courses being built. At that time, Oregon had a powerhouse 1996 squad that could beat the best in the NIC-10 conference. From 1990 to 2009, there were 148 schools that started programs, including some in the NUIC. Since then, that number has gone down, perhaps due to coops. Rounds have gone down substantially and many courses have closed, including those for the Polo, Oregon, and Dixon golf teams. One sport that isn’t seeing any sort

in sub-sectional assignments. All of the other top NUIC teams are in a sub-sectional to the north. On paper, Newman (19-3) and Forreston look like the top two seeds in their sub-sectional, giving Forreston a relatively clear path to a regional title. However, Polo gave Forreston all they could handle a couple weeks ago.

fter a narrow win over West Carroll, Forreston will be considered the underdog in this Friday’s clash against LenaWinslow, a match-up of the top two teams in 1A football. West Carroll taking Forreston to the brink shouldn’t be a big surprise. The Thunder have given Forreston competitive games in the past and are certainly a step up from opponents of the previous three weeks. There is no doubt Forreston’s highly effective no-huddle offense can move the ball on anyone, including Le-Win. However, the impressive showing by West Carroll in putting up 36 points demonstrated some kinks in the Cardinal defense. Another difference between Forreston and Le-Win is star power. The Panthers have two players in Isaiah Bruce and Sean Ormiston that can dominate games. Can Forreston’s overall team speed and operational efficiency counteract that? It should be noted that the kid who made the biggest plays of all in last year’s semifinal was Dom Christensen.

For 2020:

PUBLIC VOICE Dear Editor,

We could not be more grateful for the assistance of Habitat for Humanity of Ogle County and their Brush with Kindness program for transforming our grandparents’ backyard into a safe and usable area again. Time and age had not been kind to what once was the pride and joy of grandma and grandpa. An overwhelming amount of repair and clean up needed to be done to make the space accessible for them. Through HFHOC, “many hands made light work,” and now their backyard is a space they can enjoy again. Many hours in hot and muggy temperatures were spent sledgehammering and hauling out tons of concrete, digging up heavily rebar-reinforced wooden structures, and taming wildly overgrown plants. Once the clean up was completed, the crew got to work on replacing a rotted wooden deck with a leveled concrete

patio, spreading grass seed to restore the lawn, adding handrails for safety, replacing broken garage doors, rebuilding broken fencing, and more.   There are no words to express our appreciation to the HFHOC board members and volunteers, D&C Concrete of Davis Junction, and Dale’s Overhead Garage Doors and More of Rochelle. Our grandparents are especially appreciative of President Vanessa Broome for her patience and thorough explanations, for Volunteer Coordinator Gail Tuttle for her kindness and conversation, and Project Coordinators Don and Barb Roberts for their meticulous attention to detail, never-ending work ethic, and warm-hearted sense of humor. “Helping one person may not change the world, but it can change the world for one person.” Thank you to Habitat for Humanity of Ogle County for making this little corner of the world brighter for these two deserving people. Matt and Lynn Kalnins

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A day trip or meeting will spark your interest in something that can help you advance. Learn to diversify and to engage in projects that can lead to exciting partnerships.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Personal improvements can be made. An unusual project will intrigue you, and the people involved will add to the temptation. Partnerships are favored, and romance is encouraged.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A change will help you see things differently. Visit a place you haven’t been for a long time or get together with people who have always offered valuable insight and support.
