A press release issued Tuesday afternoon by Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said Wagner was a front seat passenger in a vehicle driven by her cousin Jason W. Wagner, 23, Polo. She was ejected from the vehicle. According to the press release, the vehicle was southbound in the 600 block

Students at David Rahn Junior High were honored to have Lieutenant Colonel Jerry Newman at their school last week. Newman, a member of the Illinois National Guard since he enlisted in 1985, was the guest speaker during a Veteran’s Day program Nov. 6. “I originally joined to go to college, and I had my parents sign my enlistment forms when I was only 17,� he said. “A year later I went to basic training.� This idea of joining quickly changed when Newman began working with his fellow soldiers. “You form bonds when you are in the military and these bonds are greater than any others,� he said. “I wanted to be by their side.� Newman returned from Afghanistan in May after serving oversees for a year. “We are currently moving out of the country,� Newman said. “But there are still casualties occurring in Afghanistan. He talked about a soldier that gave his life to save

This bond between the soldiers, Newman said, is something that stays with a

soldier his entire life. He continues to be in contact with soldiers from basic training. “We make big sacrifices by joining the military, but the biggest sacrifices and hardship are for the families left at home,� he said. “The families at home cover the slack. Do not forget about the families.� Newman is a father of four. He has three children, Nick, Abby, and Andrew are students at Oregon High

DLR students thank Newman for his service From A1 School. His oldest son Garrett graduated from OHS last year and is now at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. “I have missed birthdays, school events and Garrett’s entire senior year,� said Newman. “I also did not get to have conversations with my family every day.� Fortunately for Newman the internet has made it easier to keep in contact with his family. “I had Skype so I could talk to my family,� he said. “Mail is the most important thing for a soldier however. A letter is something you always have with you.� Returning home after any deployment was a happy occasion but apprehensive at

the same time for Newman. “When I returned home I was apprehensive because I was going for 12 months,� he said. “What relationship would I have with my family? Life continues while we are gone.� He said that is one aspect many people do not realize about the life of an enlisted soldier. “Leaving home was the toughest challenge for me,� he said. Newman joked that his day was repetitive and often boring. “My typical day would be a 5 a.m. breakfast and then watching the battlefield all day long until 9 at night,� he said. “The next day I would do it all over.� There was free time for the soldiers, and they usually

took the time to work out or watch movies that were sent by friends and family back home. Some of the movies were sent by the junior high students last year. Newman encouraged the students to open their eyes and look at the veterans that are in their communities and thank them for their service. “Veterans have a wealth of knowledge and they have seen a lot,� he said. Newman has earned the Bronze Star for two separate events. The first was for his units work during the Iraq elections to keep the polling places safe and secure. The second was for his units response to eliminating 26 insurgents during a single strike.

Crash is under investigation From A1 to KSB Hospital, Dixon, and later transferred to a Rockford hospital and then to a Peoria hospital for treatment of serious injuries. A rear seat passenger, Jay R. Wagner, 18, Albuquerque,

N.M., Melanie’s brother, was transported by ambulance to KSB Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The three had been attending a wedding reception for Jason’s father, Greg Wagner, Polo, before the crash occurred.

The Ogle County Coroner, Polo Fire Department and ambulance, Polo Police Department, and Dixon City ambulance assisted at the scene. The crash remains under investigation.

“Someone punched him in the face, which caused him to fall to the ground, which caused a head injury, which caused his death,� — Sue Fiduccia Winnebago County Coroner someone punched him in the face, which caused him to fall to the ground, which caused a head injury, which caused his death,� Fiduccia said. Oregon police were called about 3:15 a.m. on Aug. 10 by a neighbor who reported a disturbance outside the home on Monroe Street. At that time, police arrested five teens for underage drinking outside the home and another a block away. Several more party-goers scattered when police arrived, Oregon Police Chief Darin DeHaan said. Mt. Morris police and Ogle County deputies assisted at the scene.

The fight had occurred outside the house before police arrived in the early morning hours, DeHaan said. The police who responded to the call did not see Williams, and none of the people there at the time mentioned that he had been injured, he said. Williams was found unconscious and unresponsive inside the home at 8:19 a.m., after a second 911 call from a “father figure� of one of the teens who had spent the night at the home after the party, DeHaan said. Sauk Valley Media contributed to this story.

Landers and his son E.G. (Tim) Landers united the newspapers into the Republican Reporter. Ernest D. Landers died in 1966, and E.G. and Behan became partners. Eventually, E.G.

Here, Gary Greenwood and street superintendent Mike Bowers position the tree as Kurt Alexander drives the skid steer. At right, Shirley Formby and her husband Chuck pose by the new area.

Portion of S. Third Street lot is revamped Workers from the Oregon Street Department finished landscaping last week on a portion of the S. Third Street parking lot in what has now been named unofficially “Shirley Formby Park�.

“Over the years Shirley has volunteered countless hours weeding and maintaining the landscape areas in the Third Street parking lot,� said Mike Bowers, city street superintendent. “We want to

thank Shirley for her efforts.� Bowers’ crew removed the dead crab apple tree and the thorny bushes that were previously in that area. “We replaced them with Green Gem Boxwood bushes

that we saved from the north side of the bath house at the old swimming pool and a Chanticleer Pear which will grow in a conical (up but not so much out) shape,� Bowers said.

Woodcarving workshop at RRC Rock River Center will host a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whimsical Santaâ&#x20AC;? Workshop on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the center, 810 S. Tenth St., Oregon. Woodcarver George

Hospice Donation Polo Schools Booster Club member Jennifer Grobe, right, presents a check for $950 to Lynn Knodle, executive director of Serenity Hospice & Home. The money was raised during Volley for the Cure and Blitz for the Cure.

National Hospice Month in Nov. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Hospices across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about important care issues for people coping with lifelimiting illness. Throughout the month of November, organizations across the nation are hosting activities that focus on celebrating this unique system of support and the benefits provided by the loving care of hospice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year, more than 1.65 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospice and palliative care providers in this country,â&#x20AC;? said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These highly-trained professionals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only provide quality medical care. They work to make sure patients and families find dignity, respect, and love during lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most difficult journey.â&#x20AC;?

Hospice is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life. Additional information about hospice services, palliative care, and advance care planning is available from Serenity Hospice and Home. Call 815-732-2499 to schedule a tour of Serenity Home, or for more information about any of Serenity Hospice and Homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care and services. NHPCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caring Connections offers information and resources for professionals and consumers at www.caringinfo.org.

Oregon, Ill.-Not even middayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sun could pierce the gloom in the little brown cottage on the tree lined gravel lane. This was where Mary Jane Reed had lived. It was where her brother Warren Lee, 5, now was asking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she come home? Mama, why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Mary Jane come home?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The little boy could not read his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes that told starkly that Mary Jane would never come home, that she had been shot and killed. But for what reason? Good daughter â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a wonderful daughter,â&#x20AC;? Mrs. Ruth Reed, 52, said tonelessly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was always doing things for me.

Cloverbuds crafted little bunnies during meeting Submitted by Austin Zuercher Club Reporter On Oct. 10 the Ogle County Clovers met at Rochelle United Methodist Church to round out the celebration of National 4-H week. The Cloverbuds crafted

little bunnies. The group discussed what fun they had at Autumn on Parade, 2013 and played a Halloween chain game. They set up committees for activities in the following months. Then on Oct. 12 at the Ogle County Fairgrounds 4-Hers

from all over Ogle County came out to set up 4-H games and activities for the public to try out. They also brought out award-winning animals and projects for all to have a chance to sample what 4-H is about. Parents of potential 4-H members had to opportunity to ask any questions they had about 4-H. Everyone at the meeting had a good time. The next meeting for the Ogle County Clovers will be on Thursday, Nov. 14 at the Rochelle United Methodist Church starting at 6:30 p.m. for Cloverbuds (ages 5-7) and 7 p.m. for those aged 8-18.

Brochure highlights new nutritional information A publication recently released by the University of Illinois is providing new nutritional information on soy products and their value when fed to pigs. Hans H. Stein, a U of I professor in the Department of Animal Sciences, has released a brochure titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nutritional value of soy products fed to pigs.â&#x20AC;? The new brochure contains detailed nutritional information on eight different soy products, including full-fat soybeans and conventional dehulled soybean meal, as well as newer products such as fermented and enzymetreated soybean meal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soybean products are an important part of swine diets here in Illinois as well as most other parts of the world,â&#x20AC;? said Stein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to provide producers with a source of data on all aspects of nutrition for a

variety of soy products.â&#x20AC;? Soybean meal is the most commonly used source of amino acids in diets for pigs around the world. The data in the brochure provides companies, swine producers, nutritionists, and industry stakeholders with relevant information that will assist them in formulating soybean meal and other soy products into the diets for pigs, Stein explained. The brochure first describes how different soy products are produced and their applications in swine diets. The second section discusses the energy, carbohydrate, mineral, and protein and amino acid concentration of each product, as well as nutrient digestibility. Soybean meal is also compared with other plant protein sources with regards to amino acid digestibility and

protein quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on these comparisons, it is clear that soy protein has a balance of the essential amino acids that more closely fulfill the needs of pigs than any other protein source available,â&#x20AC;? Stein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The digestibility of these amino acids is also greater than in any other sources of plant protein, which further increases the value of soy protein compared with that of other plant proteins.â&#x20AC;? Key points include: Soybean meal is the premier source of digestible amino acids in diets fed to pigs. Dehulled soybean meal contains the same amount of digestible energy as corn. Fermentation or enzyme treatment of soybean meal eliminates the oligosaccharides in the meal, making it suitable for feeding to weanling pigs as a replacement for fish meal.

Holiday gift workshop Nov. 21 University of Illinois Extension Educators Candice Miller and Marilyn Csernus will present a workshop on Holiday Gifts from Your Kitchen and Garden on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. This hands-on program will be held at the Ogle County Extension office located at 421 W. Pines Rd., Oregon. Participants will take home

the gifts they make, using foods grown in a garden and common kitchen items. Participants will have the opportunity to make an evergreen grapevine wreath, terrarium ornament, pomander balls, dried herb and floral sachets, herb popcorn and savory herb dip. Spiced cider and treats will be served. All recipes will be shared.

Addition of microbial phytase will increase phosphorus digestibility in soybean meal and reduce or eliminate the need for supplementation of diets with phosphorus from feed phosphates, as well as reduce phosphorus run-off from manure into aquatic ecosystems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diets that contain a source of cereal grains, soybean meal, and microbial phytase will satisfy the need for all amino acids, all the energy, and most of the phosphorus for growing and finishing pigs,â&#x20AC;? Stein said. Bill Wykes, a soybean farmer from Yorkville, and former chairman of the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA), said that this new resource will help producers take full advantage of the nutritional value of soybeans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tend to think of soybeans as a source of amino acids first and foremost, but

this work also shows that soybeans are a greater energy source than was previously believed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This resource will help producers take full advantage of the nutritional value of soybeans,â&#x20AC;? Wykes said. While poultry, livestock, and aquaculture consume the vast majority of the soybean meal produced in the United States, there are 4.6 million head of hogs in Illinois, making pigs the major consumer of soybean meal in Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This makes hog farmers a top customer for Illinois soybeans,â&#x20AC;? said Bridget Owen, associate director of the National Soybean Research Laboratory (NSRL) at the U of I. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We value the research and data about soy and swine nutrition.â&#x20AC;? NSRL works to develop and implement soy-related programs that promote

overall consumption of U.S. soy by engaging in research, outreach, and education related to production, nutrition, and international development. More information may be obtained about soy by visiting www.nsrl.illinois.edu. Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brochure can be downloaded at http:// nutrition.ansci.illinois.edu/ SwineFocus004, or producers can contact their local U of I Extension office for copies. It is also available through the Illinois Soybean Association. Funding for this publication was provided by the ISA and the Illinois soybean checkoff. The ISA is the statewide organization for Illinois soybean growers. For more information, visit www.ilsoy.org. More information on Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research is available at the Hans H. Stein Monogastric Nutrition Laboratory website at http:// nutrition.ansci.illinois.edu.

The branches are placed in the hanging baskets along downtown Oregon streets to enhance the holiday spirit. For summer beauty, the classes have filled the baskets with flowering plants. The Prairie Preservation Society, owner of Sand Ridge, donated the branches. They are all from Scotch pine, the preferred evergreens to use for arrangements such as swags and wreaths. The trees are in a site scheduled for clearing. They are overgrown, and their removal will open up a broader vista.

miles away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is important is that you choose a non-profit to help and be passionate about it,â&#x20AC;? she said. For the second year in a row, she recently organized, baked for, solicited othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; baking expertise, and held a huge bake sale. This year, she got permission from the Giant Food store in Oakton, Va., to be allowed to sell baked goods outside the store. Ideas on what to bake first came from her mom, Joanne Miller, and then blossomed into her baking homemade apple pies as taught by her late grandmother, Olive Corbett, who mastered the art of pie baking. Baked goods such as carrotpineapple bread with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin pie, cookies, and brownies were all big sellers. Because the fund helps those who have outlived their resources, Clark adds this to a list of causes that are very

important to her. She thanked her Oakton and Fairfax neighbors, out-ofstate friends, and co-workers for helping her with baking, cutting apples, frosting the goods, and packaging all the goodies as well as writing generous checks to support the bake sale. Clark has continued to sell goods after the sale to other co-workers, who have been more than happy to partake and donate. The other fund that is dear to Clark is the Fish and Loaves Food Pantry at the Mt. Morris Church of the Brethren. The pantry serves around 140 families per month, which represents close to 500 individuals. To contribute to Fish and Loaves, contact Nelson Miller through the Church of the Brethren office, Mt. Morris. The contact for Good Samaritan Fund donations is Amy Sikyta at Pinecrest Community.

A former Mt. Morris resident doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let distance keep her from helping her hometown. Karen Clark, who has lived in northern Virginia for the last 30 years, recently held a bake sale to benefit the Good Samaritan Fund at Pinecrest Community. The bake sale has brought in a total of $2,465 for the fund. The seniors at Pinecrest Community have a special place in her heart and in her memories of working with and volunteering to help the residents, Clark said. The Good Samaritan Fund helps almost half of the residents pay their living costs. Because more residents will need help, Clark said she hopes to inspire others who went to school in Mt. Morris to help raise funds. An experienced fundraiser, over the years Clark has supported local causes as well as those that are hundreds of

Visitors are invited to come inside the church for a bake sale. Homemade pies, cookies, cakes, fudge, and all kinds of goodies will be for sale to help kick off the holiday season.

All proceeds from the bake sale will go to the HOPE, Rochelle, a safe place for abused women and their children, and to Imagine No Malaria. The Candlelight Walk takes place from 4 to 8 p.m.

The primary goals of the program are to improve literacy and writing skills, build character and compassion, develop social and emotional skills, and promote pet and humane education. The program begins this fall. Every first grader will receive a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picture and rhyming book, Rescue Pup, by local author, Brenda Fiorini, a reading teacher at Rock Falls High School. Illustrations are by Nathan Behmlander. Children will also receive an audio CD version of the book, read in both English and Spanish. In the spring, Fioriniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second book, Rescue Kitty, will be distributed along with the CD. Classroom materials include a felt story board kit a 100- page companion teaching guide.

Students will receive pet paw erasers, bookmarkers, pet paw pencils, stickers and more. Rescue Pup and Rescue Kitty picture books provide opportunities for teaching literacy and writing skills that are included in the Common Core Standards for Literacy. In addition to improving literacy skills, the program touches on building character, social and emotional development. Stories are designed to help deter the likelihood of bullying and abuse toward both animals and humans. Children also learn the importance of helping others and community involvement. Rescue Pup and Rescue Kitty also create an awareness of homeless animals and rescue efforts provided by shelters. Granny Rose wishes to thank Ogle County Animal Control, Rock Falls Coloma

Township and Whiteside County Animal Control for their financial support to help offset distribution costs to the students in Ogle and Whiteside counties. Granny Rose Animal Shelter is a 501 (c) (3) not-for profit organization that relies on local charitable giving and fundraisers to raise the funds necessary to provide shelter, health care and find new loving homes for the stray and abandoned cats and dogs in the Lee, Ogle and Whiteside County area, as well as to promote humane education through efforts such as Read! Write! Rescue! For more information, or to inquire about purchasing materials, please contact e-mail grannyroseanimalshelter@ hotmail.com or go to www. grannyrose.org and click on the Education tab. Fiorini may be reached at 815-625-7445 or www.joyfuljoyrneybooks. com

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

‘Bago boys, Byron’s Hildreth finish second at state meets By Andy Colbert Reporter After a rare 5-year drought at the IHSA cross-country meet awards stand, the storied Winnebago boys program made a triumphant return with a second-place trophy. Kelsey Hildreth of Byron, also picked up a secondplace honor individually, but her athletic heritage had more to do with tumbling and swimming than running. The two second-place finishes also helped smallByron’s Kelsey Hildreth leads a pack of runners during the 1A girls race at the Cross school running in northern Country Final Saturday in Peoria.

luster it had recently lost out to cross country teams from the central part of the state. From 2001 to 2010, this area has had 15 individual boys, including Andy Tremble and Trace Carlson (twice), finish in the top 10 downstate, including one every year in that time span. Additionally, Winnebago won state twice and took a second and third in 2005-08. While this area still lacks big-name runners of that decade like the Kelley twins of ‘Bago, state champs Jeremy Stevens and Sean Smith of ‘Bago, Brandon Mull and

Justin Rehfeldt of RC and the aforementioned Hawk duo, it didn’t stop Winnebago from taking a blue-collar approach in bringing home the 2013 second-place trophy. “The truth be told, this is not a talented bunch,” ‘Bago coach Joe Erb said. “But, you couldn’t ask for better workers, students, leaders and teammates. There are close knit group.” Not a single runner made all-state (top 25 finishers), but the five scorers finished within 41 seconds of one another in a textbook display Turn to B2

Hawks’ season ends with 49-20 at Aurora By Brian Weidman Sauk Valley Media A dream start for the Oregon football team quickly turned into a nightmare against Aurora Christian. The Hawks opened with a touchdown on their opening possession, only to see the Eagles respond with 49 straight points on their way to a 49-20 victory on Saturday night, Nov. 9, in a Class 3A second-round playoff game. “They just have talent everywhere,” Oregon senior fullback/linebacker Sawyer Reynolds said. “We just got outplayed tonight. They’re just better football players, I guess.” The key to the game for Oregon (6-5) was to chew up yardage and time with a methodical rushing attack. The plan worked to a tee on the game’s opening possession, as the Hawks marched 73 yards in 18 plays, all but one of them on the ground. The lone pass was a 2-yarder from Tyler Blume to Pierce Dhaese for a touchdown on fourth down, and the Hawks used 9 minutes, 16 seconds of clock. “That was absolutely ideal,” Oregon coach John Bothe said. “That’s what we envisioned. It was just a great start.” Once Aurora Christian got its hands on the ball, however, it was a huge problem for the Hawks. The Eagles (83) scored on all five of their first-half possessions, and senior wide receiver Brandon Walgren seemed to be in the middle of everything. He caught six first-

half passes for 179 yards, including TD catches of 45 and 44 yards from junior quarterback Austin Bray. Walgren also threw a 30-yard TD pass to Zach Bosek, and his 44-yard punt return set up a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Legend Smith. “We knew coming into this week we were going to pass a lot, and I was excited for this game knowing that,” Walgren said. “Austin had a great game passing, and he put that ball on me when he needed to.” “I always thought Brandon could be a great football player when he was a freshman,” AC coach Don Beebe said, “but I wasn’t sure if he had that moxie and that big-play attitude. He had big-play ability, but these last few games, he’s really taken things over.” Aurora Christian, which is seeking its third consecutive Class 3A state championship, quickly took care of business in the second half. Smith took a screen pass 56 yards for a score on the opening play of the third quarter to up the margin to 42-7. Reynolds fumbled on the first play of Oregon’s next possession, the game’s only turnover, and the Eagles quickly cashed in. Five runs by Smith produced Aurora Christian’s seventh and final TD with 8:35 remaining in the third quarter to make the score 49-7 and set a running clock in motion the rest of the way. Allowing an early Oregon score didn’t even register on the adversity scale for the Eagles, who started 5-0, then

suffered a rash of injuries that led to a three-game losing streak. Fifteen of 22 starters were sidelined at least part of the time in losses to Aurora Marmion (35-14), IC Catholic (48-6) and Lombard Montini (49-0). Aurora Christian has gotten players back, however, and it’s showed. The Eagles beat IC Catholic 24-3 in the first round last week before handling Oregon. “It was ugly,” Beebe said of his team’s rough patch. “It was just awful football, and I felt bad for the kids. As their coach, I had to try to keep everything together and say, ‘Guys, we’ll get through this.’ We kept praying every day, and it really brought us together. Adversity does that. “It was a metaphor for the beginning of this game. Oregon ran it down our throats, 3, 4 yards at a time, and we couldn’t do anything about it. But we stuck together, and we got it turned around.” Oregon made the score more respectable down the stretch with a pair of short TD runs by Adam Bettner and Reynolds. Much better than that, however, was qualifying for the playoffs in the first place, and gaining a memorable first-round victory over Wilmington. After a loss to Rock Falls to conclude a 2-7 2012 season, Bothe challenged his returning players in a postgame meeting. “I kind of read it to the juniors,” Bothe said. “I kind of let them have it. Our program was on the brink last year. We were down on the

mat. We weren’t knocked out, but we were down on the mat. If we didn’t respond this year, who knows where we’d be? “These kids, especially this senior group, responded and brought us back to life. Where we go from here, I don’t know, but this group definitely bounced us back.” In other 3A action, Winnebago beat Kanakee McNamara 27-12; and Stillman Valley beat ErieProphetstown 24-14. In quarterfinal action Nov. 16, Winnebago travels to Stillman Valley and Aurora Christian travels to Seneca. The winners of Saturday’s games will play in the state semifinals on Nov. 23.

Lady Hawks lose in sectional final in two games By Ty Reynolds Sauk Valley Media Everywhere the Oregon Hawks turned Nov. 7, there was another Elmurst IC Catholic Knight waiting to make a play. When the Hawks smashed spikes, the Knights were there to get a touch at the net or dig them up. When Oregon tried the tip game, IC Catholic covered well. When the Hawks got a free ball from the Knights, they couldn’t capitalize; when IC Catholic got the same chance, it cashed in. The result was a 25-17, 25-17 victory for the Knights in the championship match of the 2A South Beloit Sectional. “We just kept telling each other, ‘Get the next point, get the next one,’” Oregon junior Emy Wright said. “We were trying to do everything we could to stop their momentum, but when we couldn’t do it, we’d just Oregon’s Shannon Cullen redirects the ball around kept getting more and more Elmhurst IC Catholic’s Claudia Koch during the frustrated.” championship match at the South Beloit Sectional on The longest run Oregon Nov. 7. Photo by Earleen Hinton (29-10-1) had in the match

was three points, on just one occasion in the second set. Meanwhile, the Knights (33-6) took control of the first set with a 7-0 spurt, then scored nine points in an 11-point span to build an insurmountable lead in the second set. “The key for us all year has been to control the game, build a lead, and then just keep it going,” IC senior Delaney D’Amore said. The Hawks, on the other hand, were searching for it in vain. While IC’s defense frustrated Oregon, it was the Knights’ aggressive serving that really hurt the Hawks. But Oregon coach Faith Watson felt the rough night had more to do with their opponent than the Hawks themselves. “That’s a great all-around team, and I don’t have a bad thing to say about this loss,” said Watson, who was a senior on the Hawks’ lone sectional title team in 2006. “We made a few mental errors and had a few bounces go against us, but sometimes the team you’re playing is just better than you. I might

get in trouble for saying that, but we knew we’d have to out-strategize them, and we weren’t able to.” Oregon led 7-5 in the first set after IC ended a long rally with a spike into the net. A Wright kill made it 8-6, but an Oregon net violation turned the tide. The Knights scored the next six points on two D’Amore kills, two Rory Manion aces, and two hitting errors. Wright’s kill brought the Hawks to within 14-11 a few points later, but that was as close as Oregon would get. Kimmy Martino’s block sparked a 4-0 IC run to end the set, and Claudia Koch finished it off with an ace. Back-to-back IC errors early in the second set gave the Hawks a 9-7 edge, but they couldn’t sustain it. A hitting error started a 9-2 Knight run, with D’Amore smashing a pair of spikes and Koch adding a kill to cap the surge. Delaney Mahoney’s perfect tip-kill stopped the bleeding, but Oregon couldn’t score more than two consecutive points after that.

“I think our strength all year has been our defense, and our ability to keep the other offense off-balance,” IC coach Jean Field said. D’Amore had 14 kills and 10 digs for the Knights, while Manion added 10 kills and 10 points. Martino set 25 assists, and libero Kerry Mulligan added eight digs as IC outkilled Oregon 28-17. Wright led the Hawks with eight kills, and sophomore Sommer Rhea added five kills and six digs. Mahoney dished 13 assists, Hailey Long had three kills and six digs, and Jordan Wilken paced the defense with eight digs. “We were ready for what they were doing; we just didn’t hit the ball in the roight spots,” Rhea said. “We’ll definitely learn from this, and be ready to come back next year.” The Knights beat Chicago Morgan Park 25-24, 25-13 to win the Lisle Supersectional on Nov. 9. They play Mackinaw Deer Creek at the state final tournament on Friday at noon.

Rockford Lutheran upsets Rochelle Hubs 27-22 By Andy Colbert Reporter In a 27-22 upset win over Rochelle in the 4A playoffs Saturday, Rockford Lutheran laid to rest any claims that they were incapable of playing with a physically-imposing team from the Northern Illinois Big 12 East conference. “They were supposed to be bigger, faster and from a tougher conference,” Lutheran coach Bruce Bazsali. “People don’t understand how tough our kids are.” However, with the way the game started, it appeared the Hubs would prove the prognosticators correct. The Hubs forced a Lutheran fumble at midfield and drove to the 5-yard line and had first-and-goal. In the first of many surprises to Rochelle, the Crusaders stiffened and kept the Hubs from scoring. Lutheran had a third-and10 from the 9-yard line and again it looked like Rochelle would get the ball back with good field position and re-start its high-powered ground game. Instead, quarterback Kendall Lawson found James Robinson in the flat and the 195-pound sophomore broke free for a critical first down. Lawson then got the

Crusaders out of a secondand-22 situation with consecutive completions, the second a 61-yard touchdown to a wide-open Austin Sikora after defensive back Griffin Gabriel fell down. “After fumbling, it didn’t bother us. We knew we could play with them,” Lawson said. “Nobody was giving us credit.” Evan White, who led all rushers with 230 yards, fumbled on the Hubs’ next possession and Robinson scored on a 32-yard run on the first play of the second quarter to make it 13-0. “Their running back is the real deal,” Rochelle defensive coordinator Chris Lewis said. “Lutheran did a good job of matching our physical play.” White got Rochelle back in the game with 58-yard touchdown, in which he cut right, cut left and outraced the Lutheran defense. The Hubs forced a punt, but another mistake proved costly. Miscommunication between quarterback Angel Burciaga and receiver Marquez Felix resulted in a Crusader interception by Joey Caravello. On the next play, it was the speedy Robinson getting outside and racing 22 yard for a touchdown and 19-8

lead, silencing the large home crowd. “We kind of dug ourselves in a hole in the first half and that killed us,” White said. White, who carried the Hubs on his back the entire game, gave his team some life with a 29-yard touchdown run, cutting the margin to 1916 early in the third quarter. His counterpart, Robinson, then added 29 of his 201 rushing yards on his third touchdown of game to make it 27-16 as the Hubs struggled to slow down the Crusaders offense. Rochelle used two fourthdown conversions and a 32yard pass from Burciaga to Keegan Akers to get within 27-22 on the last play of the third quarter. Rochelle finally got the much-needed stop of Lutheran with consecutive sacks of Lawson. Following a punt, Rochelle had the ball at its own 27-yard line with eight minutes left. “It felt like we finally had momentum on our side,” Lewis said. Reminiscent of a 20-14 playoff loss to Kaneland two years ago, the Hubs began what could have been a fourth-quarter winning drive. On a fourth -and-5, White was hit in the backfield, but broke

free for a first down. Then under pressure, Burciaga managed to get a 17-yard pass off to a diving White. With the Rochelle crowd loudly cheering now, a 10yard White run set up a first down at the 20-yard line with two minutes left. Unfortunately for the Hubs, the drive died at the 16-yard line, close to the same spot of the field as it did against Kaneland in 2011. “Not getting that first touchdown of the game and mistakes really hurt us,” Lewis said. “But, credit to Lutheran.” Dropping down from 5A to 4A as the largest school and drawing a favorable bracket, Rochelle (6-5) had its best chance ever to advance downstate. Instead, the Hubs suffered one of the most devastating losses in school history. Lutheran (10-1), which had only won a total of six games from 2006 to 2011, continues its meteoric rise by reaching the quarterfinals for the first time ever, even after being bumped up from 2A to 4A this year. “It’s kind of a blur how we won this,” said Bazsali, who Rochelle’s Evan White jumps over Rockford defenders called the win one his best in Austin Barnhart (55) and Dario Ingardona (3) en route to a touchdown Saturday.

Kelsey Hildreth finishes second at 1A state cross country meet From B1 of pack running. Elmwood won the meet with 161 to 167 for ’Bago. “We were a little off in a couple spots and at the state meet, there is no room for error,” Erb said. Nathan Ambrose led the Indians with a time of 15:43 for 26th place. Other scorers were Nathan Smith (16:01), Jeff Swanson (16:02), Nathan

Nozzi (16:21) and Christian Devant (16:23). “These guys started to bring our program back a couple years ago when they were freshmen and sophomores,” Erb said. “I’ve enjoyed coaching them as much as any group. They’d meet me at school at 5:15 am for extra elliptical training.” Jon Davis, a sophomore from Fithian Oakwood, easily won the race with a time of

14:47. TJ Pitcok of Byron, who won the sectional, finished a disappointing 35th place with a time of 15:55. In the individual 1A girls race, Hildreth finished second to burgeoning star Anna Sophia Keller of Effingham St. Anthony. In a drastic change from one year to the next of the leading roles for girls 1A cross country, Hildreth was only 47th in

2012, while Keller was an eighth grader. Hildreth’s time of 17:20 over the 3-mile loop at Detweiller Park in Peoria would have won last year’s state meet, while Keller’s 16:35 would have won both the 2A and 3A races. “I’m happy with my time,” Hildreth said. “It was a good goal to set for myself to try to keep up with her. Right now, I’m obviously a little

disappointed. But she was crazy, so…” Both girls came into the meet with undefeated records and neither was familiar with the other. Keller hit the 1-mile mark 10 seconds ahead of Hildreth at 5:23 and expanded her lead as the race progressed, finishing with a 5:20 last mile. Her time betters anything that Katelyn Bastert of Carthage did in winning four Class A

titles from 2003-06. Hildreth, a senior, only began running last year after being involved in gymnastics and diving. “It’s still kind of a new experience,” Hildreth said. “I just decided to try it. Over the past summer, I improved a lot. It was kind of a big surprise.” Cheyenne Moore took 19th in the girls race for Winnebago to also claim allstate honors.

Cardinals advance with 24-14 win over EP By Larry Brennan Sauk Valley Media It fought valiantly, but Erie-Prophetstown could not overcome playing without its 3-year starting quarterback. With senior QB Ethan Howard sidelined with a knee injury suffered in the first round, the Panthers battled. But they came up short in a 24-14 loss to Stillman Valley in a Class 3A secondround matchup Nov. 9 at Erie Middle School. Sophomore Jordan Chandler, tried to fill Howard’s shoes. But with its former halfback at quarterback, Erie-Prophetstown’s option attack was unable to run on all cylinders. “Me and [Chandler] only had a week to practice to try to get what me and Ethan had for 10 games,” said fullback Nick Williams, who had 24 carries for 135 yards to surpass 2,000 yards for the season. “Jordan stepped up. He’s a great quarterback and a great runner. I’m proud of how he

performed.” “It hurt not having our starting quarterback out there,” said halfback Chris Bauer, who had 77 yards on nine carries. “We just made a few errors, and they made a couple big plays.” Bauer got the Panthers (83) off and running. EP began the opening possession at its own 20. Seven running plays later, five by Williams and two by Bauer, the Panthers had a fourth-and-7 from the Stillman Valley 47. They went for it. Bauer got it, and a lot more, busting loose for a touchdown. Williams added the twopoint conversion, and EP led 8-0 with 7:24 left in the first quarter. A botched Stillman Valley punt resulted in the Panthers tackling Cardinals punter Marcus Bower at the Stillman Valley 31. Erie-Prophetstown was unable to cash in, however, as Chandler fumbled the ball away three plays later at the Cardinals’ 20.

Stillman Valley (9-2) rolled the dice to come up with its first touchdown. On fourth-and-3 from their own 19, the Cardinals went for it. Tristan Elliott burst through

EP’s short-yardage defense and bolted 81 yards for a touchdown. Logan Alberts’ two-point run made it 8-8 with 7:29 left in the first half. Late in the first half,

mistakes cost EP dearly. The Panthers’ Dylan Binion returned the ensuing kickoff 27 yards to midfield. But three plays later, an errant Chandler pitch resulted in another fumble, and the Cardinals recovered at their 37. With just 1:05 until halftime, Stillman Valley started at its own 25. Elliott broke free again, bursting 43 yards to the Panthers’ 32. A late hit out of bounds tacked on 15 more yards to the 17. The Cardinals reached the 12 before lining up for a field goal on fourth-and-5. But, the Panthers jumped offsides, giving Stillman firstand-goal at the 7. Two plays later, 6-foot-2, 230-pound fullback Zac Hare scored a 2-yard touchdown with just 6.7 seconds left. Elliott’s twopoint run made it 16-8. Stillman Valley turned the ball over on downs at its own 29 on the first possession of the second half. Again, EP could not convert, losing 5 yards on three plays before punting.

The Cardinals fumbled the ball away at the Panthers’ 46 with 6:03 left in the third quarter. This time, EP made it count. A pair of 14-yard runs by Williams set up a 1-yard plunge by Chandler. But, the two-point run attempt by Williams was stuffed, and the Panthers trailed 16-14 with 1.1 seconds left in the third quarter. Stillman Valley answered, putting the game away with a 74-yard TD drive. A 36-yard run by Elliott highlighted the march, which was capped by a 1-yard TD by Hare. Alberts’ two-point run made it 24-14 with 7:07 to play. “It was kind of that find-a-way-to-win playoff performance,” Cardinals coach Mike Lalor said. “It wasn’t real pretty, but when we had to make plays, we made plays. We also had a couple big breaks go our way.” Elliott ran for 222 rushing yards and one touchdown. Connor McNames compiled 52 rushing yards.

Sports Column Statistics tell tale of Aurora playoff game By Andy Colbert Reporter Great season Oregon Hawk football team. Besides navigating such a tough schedule to make the playoffs and then beating Wilmington in dramatic fashion, this year’s team righted the ship after the program got off course last year. Here are a couple of statistics from the Aurora Christian game that are hard to believe, but true: While it took Oregon 18 plays to score its first

touchdown, it only took Aurora Christian 19 plays to score its first six touchdowns. After the Hawks took a 7-0 lead and ran 9:16 off the clock, it only took AC about 16 minutes to put a running clock in effect by taking a 49-7 lead early in the third quarter. The Eagles were too fast, too multifaceted, too gifted and too precision-tuned for the Hawks to have any chance of making it a game. Oregon’s first drive may go down as the best of the year in terms of length of time, conversion of fourth downs, play calling and execution by line and backfield. Compared to the 2010 and 2011 playoff games against AC, also Hawk losses, this team looked even faster and

more proficient, if that is possible. In the 2011 thriller, Anthony Maddie completed nearly every pass he threw. The last time AC lost to a BNC team or in the playoffs for that matter, was in the 2010 playoffs. Stillman Valley had a nearly perfect first half in rolling to a 46-16 win. Since then, the 2-time defending state champs have only had two close games in the playoffs, Oregon in 2011 and Elmhurst in 2012. In his post-game comments Saturday, AC coach Don Beebe mentioned how worried he was after Oregon scored to take a 7-0 lead that it might have ended up being a repeat of 2011 with both teams trading scores all night. All-everything Brandon Walgren (6-for-179 yards

receiving, two touchdowns catches, one touchdown pass) quickly alleviated any fears Beebe had. It was a nuisance to be subjected to loud music blared throughout the game. I hope that trend never makes it out to farm country. Plus, the PA guy would be better served to stick to Basic Announcing 101. Let the action on the field be our entertainment, not all this extracurricular garbage coming through the loud speakers. On the positive, the administration, fans, coaches and players for AC are pleasant enough and respect for our program and really enjoy the atmosphere when they come to LandersLoomis Field.

In a remarkable achievement, all five of the Hawk opponents that made the playoffs won again for the second week in a row. Since Stillman and Winnebago play each other this week, and Harvard and Lutheran the same, two BNC teams will be in the 3A/4A semifinals. The other opponent was Momence, who will face Sterling Newman. Next year, Dixon will be on the Hawks’ schedule as the BNC expands from 14 to 16 teams. The early favorite for the conference title is Lutheran, who returns most of its team including D-I recruit James Robinson who is on target to break the alltime state rushing yardage record. Though numbers may be

a concern again for 2014, if this year’s sophomores and juniors can follow the example set by the seniors, Oregon will be a playoff team.

Frosty temperatures have already destroyed the blooms on many summer plants, a sure sign that winter weather isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far away. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet time to start shoveling snow, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the National Weather Service (NWS) are encouraging people to begin preparing now for extreme cold, snow and ice. IEMA and the NWS will highlight winter weather preparedness throughout November as part of their annul Winter Weather Preparedness campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Illinois, its a question of when snow, ice and sub-zero temperatures will hit, not if they will occur,â&#x20AC;? said IEMA Director Jonathon Monken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting caught unprepared may not be just inconvenient, it could be dangerous. Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the time to take a few minutes to put together your home and vehicle emergency supply kits and review the steps you should take to stay safe during hazardous winter weather.â&#x20AC;? Monken said. According to NWS, there were eight deaths related to extreme cold temperatures nationwide in calendar year 2012. That number is significantly lower than the 10-year national average of 27 fatalities. All of the 2012 cold-related fatalities occurred outdoors, including three deaths in Illinois. Since 1995, 134 fatalities related to cold temperatures have occurred in Illinois,

From B3

making it the second-leading cause of weather-related deaths in Illinois in the past 18 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are several dangerous health conditions that can occur in winter weather,â&#x20AC;? said Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to watch for signs of being too cold or over exertion. Hypothermia, when a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body temperature drops below 95 degrees Fahrenheit, can occur both outdoors and indoors and can be fatal,â&#x20AC;? Hasbrouck said. To help Illinois residents prepare for winter, IEMA, NWS, and the American Red Cross developed a winter weather preparedness guide that covers winter weather terms and tips for staying safe at home, in the car, and at school. The guide is available on the Ready Illinois website at www.Ready.Illinois.gov or by calling 217-785-9925. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Preparing well in advance of winter weather is really the best way to cope when snow, ice and cold temperatures affect us,â&#x20AC;? said Chris Miller, warning coordination meteorologist with the NWS office in Lincoln. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now is the time to prepare your vehicle and house for winter conditions. Make sure you have blankets, nonperishable food, boots, extra clothing and other items in your car to ride out the storm in case you are stranded or waiting for a tow,â&#x20AC;? Miller said.
