Delay sheriff’s building for tourism studies? By Vinde Wells Editor Concerns over tourism prompted a county board member to ask Tuesday that plans for a new sheriff’s administration building are put on hold. Ron Colson, Mt. Morris, filed a request with county board chairman Kim Gouker,

Byron, at the county meeting asking to be placed on the February agenda. His written request said he wants to introduce a motion to suspend the bid process on the sheriff’s new headquarters at 103 Jefferson St., Oregon. The county board approved seeking bids for the new building at its December meeting.

Gouker agreed to refer Colson’s request to the Executive Committee which sets up the board agenda each month. Colson’s request said he wants the building project sent back to the county’s Long Range & Strategic Planning Committee for further study. He asked for an analysis of the market value of the

property where the sheriff’s office now sits and the new one would be built because he said its part of the City of Oregon’s Comprehensive Plan for a Riverfront District. Colson said the property is a key part of planned development to promote tourism in the city, which would also financially benefit the county.

Gouker said that Oregon Mayor Tom Stone has voiced no objections to building the new sheriff’s administration building on the site. Colson’s request asked alternative sites be considered for the new building. He also asked that the Long Range & Strategic Planning Committee determine if architectural changes should

be made in the proposed building plan to allow for future growth needs of the sheriff’s department, coroner, 911 director, and Ogle County Emergency Management Agency director, all of which will be housed in the new building. Colson voiced displeasure with the process followed in Turn to A8

Park board agrees to issue bonds for projects By Vinde Wells Editor Improvements to recently acquired property and work on the heating and cooling system at the Blackhawk Center are on the list of projects the Oregon Park District plans to tackle in the upcoming year. Money to complete those and other capital improvement and maintenance projects will come from general obligation bonds approved by the park board last week. After the required Bond Issue Notification Act (BINA) hearing, the park board approved issuing $2

million in bonds at its Jan. 14 meeting. However, Executive Director Erin Folk said the board expects to spend only about $400,000 of that in the coming fiscal year, which begins May 1. “We don’t anticipate issuing the $2 million, but this gives us flexibility,� Folk said. The bond issue is a routine matter that occurs each year, she said, and the BINA hearing is required every three years. Although the complete list of capital projects is not yet complete, Folk said part of the money will be spent to

improve Jack’s Landing, the 10 wooded acres on Daysville Road recently donated to the park district by Craig and Bette Williams. The area will be kept as natural as possible to preserve the native plants, trees, and wildlife in the area, Folk said earlier this month. Preliminary plans calls for adding walking trails, a fishing pier, and possibly a canoe launch.

Another project will be the HVAC system at the Blackhawk Center. The good news for taxpayers is that the bond issue will not increase property taxes. In fact, park district taxes will go down slightly. “Our taxes this year are expected to decrease by $1.52 for the average homeowner in Oregon,� Folk said.

Winter is officially half over, but for snow plow drivers there has been no end in sight. At the Ogle County Highway Department, which maintains 270 miles of county roads, the employees have only had one day off since Dec. 8. “Our guys have been out daily dealing with the snow and ice,� said Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook. “While we may not be getting much snow with each storm, the wind has been blowing and drifting. Our guys have been doing a fantastic job in these conditions.� This constant winter weather has led to a higher demand for salt and chips to help keep area roads clear. The roads in Ogle County are either maintained by the county, the townships, the state, or individual municipalities. Townships in Ogle County maintain 918 miles of roads. The Illinois Department of Transportation maintains Ill. 2, 26, 64, 72, 251, I-39, and US 52. Some of the main county roads include German Church Road, River Road,

White Pines Road, Lowell Park Road, Baileyville Road, and Mt. Morris Road. Montague Road is co-maintained between Winnebago, Stephenson, and Ogle Counties. So far salt supplies have been holding out for the county. “We are okay with our chip supply but our salt supplier is having a hard time getting all the salt to us,� said Cook. “We are expecting a delivery of salt this week from an order placed Dec. 20.� The highway department has salt orders throughout the winter because the salt needs to be stored inside a building. “We place numerous orders and we have 1,500 tons ordered that have not been delivered,� said Cook. Fortunately for the county, their storage capacity was increased after a winter 2009 shortage. “The county board allowed us to build a second storage building for salt,� said Cook. “Without is we would have been out of salt two weeks ago. Fortunately we have had enough salt so far.� With two ice storms this season, Cook said another ice storm would drastically impact the remaining salt Turn to A2

Board member asks for audit By Vinde Wells Editor A county board member’s motion to have a forensic audit of the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department’s expenditures was quickly quashed Tuesday because it wasn’t on the meeting agenda. Board member Richard Petrizzo, Davis Junction, made the motion under the “new business� section of the meeting. However, board chairman

Kim Gouker, Byron, told him the measure couldn’t be voted on because it wasn’t listed as an item on the agenda. Petrizzo asked it that rule could be waived in order for the board to act immediately. “Yes, but we aren’t going to when it involves spending taxpayers’ money,� Gouker replied, referring to the cost of the proposed forensic audit. Petrizzo said he was proposing the measure in

Oregon reduces salt spreading From A1 supplies in the county. Already some municipalities including Oregon have reduced the amount of salt being spread on their streets. Oregon street superintendent Michael Bowers informed residents last week that street salting was being limited to intersections, curves, and hills. At that time

Oregon had used 75 percent of its salt supply for the winter. As of Monday morning Cook said the county has ordered about 60 percent of its annual salt supply. “Despite it seeming like a lot of snow this season, overall it has been a normal winter,� said Cook. “The last two years we were fortunate to not have much snow.� The continuous winter

has affected the highway department budget. At the end of the season, Cook said he will reexamine his budget to determine if any scheduled projects would need to be deferred due to winter expenses. “Right now we are burning $20,000 per week in fuel to keep the roads clear,� said Cook. “Those costs add up quick.�

Broom Ball Bash held Jan. 7 Twelve former Mt. Morris Lady Mounders got together Jan. 7 for the first annual Broom Ball Bash. The game was held at the former Mt. Morris High School tennis courts, where they originally played.

Broom ball was a sport that was played during physical education classes taught by retired teacher and coach Salley Wessels. Each participant brought non-perishable food items that were donated to Mt.

Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry. “The winter afternoon was enjoyed by all who attended,� said participant Edie White. “The Lady Mounder Alumni are looking forward to next year’s event.�

From A1 light of recent publicity over some expenditures made by Sheriff Michael Harn, who was present at the meeting. A forensic audit is more extensive than the audit done every year on the county’s financial records. Petrizzo’s motion asked that the forensic audit examine sheriff’s department expenditures from December of 2010 when Harn took office to the present, with special scrutiny given to the Tow

Fund, credit card expenditures, and the use of county travel and per diem allowances. The motion came after Tom Smith, Rochelle, asked the county board for answers during the “public comment� section of the board meeting. He also asked for a forensic audit of the sheriff’s department. Smith said he represented 12 people in the audience who shared his views. He also presented a letter to the county board from Fred Cederholm,

Rochelle, a retired forensic accountant. Cederholm’s letter explained what records are examined during a forensic audit. “We’re looking for answers,� Smith said. “I don’t see this going away unless you people [the board] do something. We elected you to lead.� No other board members commented on either Petrizzo’s motion or Smith’s request.

The Oregon Republican Reporter was founded in 1851 as the Ogle County Reporter. In 1889, the Ogle County Republican, a competing newspaper, was started. In 1890, the Republican was sold to Ziba Landers. Upon his death in 1939, the newspaper was assumed by his son, Ernest D. In March 1951, Paul F. Behan, owner of the Reporter, and E.D. 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. Landers assumed sole ownership, and in 1985 he sold the newspaper to B.F. Shaw Printing of Dixon, publisher of the Sauk Valley Newspapers. Ogle County Newspapers also prints the Mt.

Softball games were important social events in 1940s Editor’s note: Otto Dick, Oregon, has researched the people, places, and events important in Oregon’s history for the Ogle County Historical Society. The following is part of a series of the articles he has written. By Otto Dick Before TV, computers, cell phones, etc., Oregon had a thriving downtown and several factories. Churches and organizations were thriving, and horse racing was popular at the fairgrounds located across from Black Hawk Statue. Many events, including the annual antique show and a teen canteen, were held at the Oregon Coliseum. When my folks moved to Oregon in 1948, family picnics, fishing and boating, the county fair, golf, bowling, and softball were important activities. This was when many attended church and Sunday School, Sunday evening service, and a service on Wednesday evening. Oh, they also talked to each

other, not pushing buttons to communicate. I guess this shows my age. A photo given to me by Dutch Johnson showing the A and H softball reminded me of the days when teenage boys carried softball gloves, not cell phones, and it was a social event to watch the softball games at the lighted softball diamond at the high school. A short history of softball from several sources on the internet.. Soft ball was first introduced on Thanksgiving Day in 1887 at a HarvardYale football game. A man from Yale threw a boxing glove at the Harvard grads after the game was over. A fan from Harvard hit the glove with a broom handle. A game of indoor softball sponsored by George Hancock was organized between Yale and Harvard at the Farragut Boat Club in Chicago. They made a large soft ball by taking a boxing glove and tying it into a ball. The ball was fielded barehanded since

OHS Principal Roland Kiest

it was soft. The first game ended with a score of 41 to 40. Indoor softball became very popular in the Chicago area that winter. In 1933 Michale Paulsey and Leo Fischer organized three different softball divisions including a women’s slow pitch division, a men’s slow pitch division, and a men’s fast pitch division. The first softball league created outside the U.S. was established at Toronto, Canada in the late 1890s. The sizes of the ball and bats varied depending upon who was playing and where the game was played. In Oregon, during my school years, 12-inch circumference fast pitch softball dominated. While attending college I witnessed the students from Chicago playing with a 16inch softball. This game was played without gloves and the pitcher threw the ball with a high arc dropping it over the plate area. Anyway, fact or fiction, this gives an insight into the beginnings of softball. Now back to Oregon softball as I remember it around 1950. The games were played at the high school softball field. One account thanks OHS Principal Roland Kiest and The cover of Hoofbeats magazine showed this view of sulky races at the original Ogle the Oregon School for the County Fairgrounds with the Black Hawk Statue in the background. diamond and the lights. Before this time there were three fields in Oregon. Loren “Gabby� Bradford was the announcer and sports writer. The announcer sat behind the screen located behind the batters cage. People parked their cars on the east side of the diamond during the day to reserve their place for the games. They raised money to pay expenses by running a concession stand and passed the hat for donations. Next week: the A and H softball team.

Fourth Fridays returns to Polo It’s still January on the calendar, so area musicians will be celebrating the “first� Fourth Friday Open Mic music show of 2014 on Friday, Jan. 24. Held at the Polo Senior Center, Fourth Friday features musicians from around the Sauk Valley area and beyond. Each musician (or group of musicians) performs at center stage for 15 minutes until each group has been featured. Instruments are all acoustic and a sound system is provided. The music is varied and includes country, bluegrass, blues, gospel, folk, soft rock, honky-tonk and classical piano, plus eclectic mixes of

all of the above. Participation is encouraged. Bring an instrument and join the fun. Be part of the show or just jam with other musicians in the Franklin Rooms. Performers draw numbers at 6:30 p.m. and then choose their time slot based on the number they drew. The musicians “jam� until 7 p.m. and then the show begins. For those who prefer to just listen, audience members and friends are welcome, too. Fourth Friday is a wonderful way to enjoy live music and encourage local musicians. It also gives people a chance to get out and enjoy the company of others plus get warmed up and recharged on a cold

winter’s night. The Polo Senior Center, located at 101 E. Mason, is handicapped accessible. Additional parking is available behind the building. No admission fee is charged. Refreshments are available and all donations benefit the Polo Senior Center.

The organizers of an upcoming event to support a local not-for-profit agency are delighted by the responses they are receiving regarding the upcoming What’s Cookin’ event. This event which will be taking place at Oak Lane on Saturday, March 29 starting at 5 p.m. is not new by any means as it is somewhat a spin-off of the “30 Men Who Cook� events that have been held in areas such as Rochelle and Rockford. “But what is unique about this event is that the organizers believe it is the first of its kind around the Oregon area,� said organizer Diane Palmer.

“And the focus of this event is to bring all Ogle County communities together to have fun and help others.� Oak Lane is a facility that caters to weddings, receptions, banquets and parties in a barn setting is located three miles southeast of Oregon on Daysville Road. The What’s Cookin’ 2014 event is for teams consisting of four people preparing a food item in one of the following categories: appetizer, entre, side dish or dessert. The public is invited to attend and for a designated amount of time can walk around taste-testing the teams’ food items. The public will be the judges. Participants will be given a program or ballot and can choose which team had the best recipes. Awards will be presented to the teams at the end of the taste-testing portion of the event. A maximum of 35 teams are needed for the event, and Palmer said a number of local businesses have already shown interest in bringing their cooking skills to the event. Spaces are still available, and registration is a must. Admission is $20 per person for the public to attend. Palmer and co-organizer Joyce Bruns hope to make this

as an annual Ogle Countyfocused event. The goal is to be able to support a not-for-profit agency, group or organization each year. “It is important that the Ogle County communities come together to support efforts for not-for-profit groups as these are the agencies that help and serve others in the community and need the financial assistance to do that service. As a county-wide event a little interest from each community means a lot,� Palmer said. The proceeds of What’s Cookin’ 2014 will go to the Rock River Center, Oregon. This facility provides resources, activities and services that improve the quality of life for Ogle County’s older adults, the disadvantaged, caregivers, and the greater community. If you are interested in participating in this event as a 4-person cooking team, a sponsor or a volunteer, the event organizers would love to talk to you. You can go to the event website: http:// whatscookin.homestead. com and by clicking on the “CONTACT US� buttons you can send a message directly to the organizers or you can call 815-973-1432 for more information.

University of Illinois Extension Educator, Peggy Doty, will offer this program that focuses on the behaviors of cougars, wolves, and black bears and why they may be visiting us again. These animals have all been spotted in Illinois over the past few years. It is important

for people to understand why we are hearing about these mammals in the news more often. Animals do not think the way humans do and yet we continue to be anthropomorphic, giving them human traits and reasons for their actions. Animals do not know they have a tendency to scare us, especially if they are large and higher on the food chain. Due to the sporadic The fee for this program is $5.

Ogle County Newspapers, Thursday, January 23, 2014, Page A7

Sheriff: The bills were corrected, not altered By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn says his personal charges on his county-issued credit card were deleted from invoices because he never intended for the county to pay for them. His comments echoed those made earlier by County Board Chairman Kim Gouker, who had said he

saw nothing fraudulent about alterations made to the credit card bills. Copies of the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department’s credit card bills were obtained by Sauk Valley Media through a Freedom of Information Act request. On Dec. 28, Sauk Valley Media reported that since 2011, at least three bills had been altered to change the month’s balance or to remove charges.

The charges were personal purchases that had been paid directly to the credit card company. “I corrected my statements before I ever turned them in to the clerk’s office,� Harn said Tuesday, adding that he didn’t think he was covering up anything “because those things were paid for previously.� At the time, Ogle County didn’t have a countywide

credit card policy. Each department with a credit card set its own policy. The county has since established a countywide policy. In December, Gouker said he was aware of the changes to the bills, but didn’t think it was fraudulent or done to cover up anything, because the county was never going to pay for those charges. Harn was aware of personal purchases being made on

the county cards, but wasn’t aware of all of them, he said, adding that it was a policy in place before he was elected in 2010. The practice was stopped, Harn said, after personal purchases by former Dixon City Engineer Shawn Ortgiesen came to light. Ortgiesen charged $13,521 on Dixon credit cards between April 2007 and May 2013, but didn’t pay the credit

card company directly and didn’t pay back the charges in full until he resigned In April 2013. The personal purchases in Ogle County didn’t happen very often, Harn said, and were paid directly to the credit card company before the county paid the balance of the bill. The changes to the bill were made to show the amount the county was paying, he said.

Money in budget is left on the table the past 2 years By Matt Mencarini and David Giuliani Sauk Valley Media Government agencies often spend every cent they get. Sometimes they don’t. In the past 2 years, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn has left unspent more than $1 million from his annual budgets. According to the county treasurer’s numbers, Harn didn’t spend $766,000 in his budget last fiscal year and $572,000 the previous year. His budget includes law enforcement, corrections, and building and grounds for all county property. In the 2013 budget, Harn’s unspent money included $350,000 for repairs and maintenance of buildings, including redoing the heating and cooling system for a county building, Treasurer John Coffman said. The sheriff handles the county’s buildings and grounds. “Projects were planned,� Coffman said, “and for whatever reason didn’t happen.� While the county’s budgeting process won’t begin for about 6 months, Ogle County Chairman Kim

Gouker said, there might be a review to determine whether the Sheriff’s Department or others are being overbudgeted. “There’s no point in budgeting funds, if they’re not necessary,� he said. Harn did not respond to requests for comment. Gouker said Harn had saved money for the county by working to get favorable contracts for natural gas and electricity for county buildings. The sheriff is also saving money by having patrol cars fill up at the gas pumps the county owns, he said, and has increased revenue the county receives from federal inmates who are housed by the U.S. Marshals Service at the Ogle County Jail. Harn proposed the idea for the county to install an underground tank for gas, which all county departments can use for county vehicles. Last fiscal year, the County Board allocated $6.7 million for Harn’s departments, and he spent $5.8 million of that. The previous year, $6.4 million was budgeted, with $5.8 million spent. “Some departments seem to spend everything; others

spend what they need and turn money back,� Treasurer Coffman said. “[The $766,000] is a good chunk of money.� With money left unspent, that theoretically means a lower tax levy the next year, he said. In this situation, he said, the county didn’t see much of a change. “The budget is both an estimate of revenues and expenses,� Coffman said. “A lot of departments are involved in [the general] fund.� Putting the budget together is a “give and take,� said Gouker, who also serves as the board’s Finance Committee chairman. Gouker said he wants to have as small a budget as possible, while still providing the services necessary to county residents. The fact that Harn has kept his department under its budget, Gouker said, is significant. “I’ve always said that this sheriff spends the tax dollars like his own money, and I mean that as a compliment,� Gouker said. “He tries to get the most bang out of the buck for the taxpayer.�

This number is a result of the efforts of many individuals doing their part to reduce waste and recycle as much as possible at home, work and school. Although residents should be pleased with that percentage, the OCSWMD urges residents to strive to find new ways to increase what gets recycled and reduce the amount of waste going to local landfills. Since the beginning

of this grant program in 2000, the OCSWMD has provided grants totaling over $96,300 towards equipment, educational materials and other items that have helped local businesses and nonprofits save money and reduce waste. During that same period, the county recycling rate increased from 21 to 40 percent. The application for the grants is simple and flexible. Businesses could use grant funds to help purchase waste reduction and recycling materials and equipment

Women’s club bakes cookies Byron Women’s Club members assisted Byron Special Education teachers recently in the third year of Grandma for a Day cookie baking with the Byron students. Teachers and aides, students, mothers, and BWC members work with the students in the fine art of mixing, rolling, cutting, baking and then decorating a variety of shapes for the finished Christmas cookies. Members also donated cookies to be decorated so there will be an

ample number of cookies for the students’ Cookie Walk. The event was started when Life Skills teachers were planning a holiday activity for the students, and Char Greil, BWC member and substitute teacher, suggested that a cookie baking and decorating morning would be unique and something the students would enjoy. The first year’s cookie bake was held at Saint Mary’s Church. Greil reported on the success of the event and BWC board suggested that the cookie decorating be

an annual event. The second year’s session was held at the United Church of Byron because of the convenient arrangement of the kitchen and dining room. The church locales give the students an opportunity to be in a different location than the usual classroom. An added advantage for all participants is the chance to interact, learn from each other, and have a fun and festive beginning to the Christmas holidays.

County offering waste reduction/recycling grants The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department (OCSWMD) is announcing that limited funds are again available for Waste Reduction/Recycling Grants for the 2014 fiscal year. The grants of up to $2,000 are available to Ogle County businesses, schools, churches and non-profit organizations wishing to establish or improve on waste reduction and recycling programs and services. Applicants must provide a 20 percent match of the total project cost. Since total grant funds available are limited to $8,000 this fiscal year (beginning Dec. 1, 2013), grants will be awarded on a competitive basis in amounts from $100 - $2000, in four rounds until funds are depleted. The deadline for the first round of grants is Friday, Feb. 7. In 2012, Ogle County residents, businesses and other entities recycled approximately 40 percent of the municipal waste generated in the County. This is based on the results from the 2012 Recycling

such as collection bins, carts, balers and storage containers. Equipment needed to switch from disposable packaging to reusable packaging for products and supplies could also be considered. Schools may seek funds for special projects that will further a student’s understanding of how to reduce the amount of trash sent to the landfill. The requests may be for materials and equipment, such as recycling bins/carts, videos, books, worm bins, composters or a dishwasher

so disposable plastic ware and Styrofoam trays can be replaced with reusable silverware, plates and trays. Municipalities seeking to improve curbside or multifamily recycling are encouraged to apply. Grant applications for equipment and materials needed to improve electronics recycling options in Ogle County are also encouraged since most electronics have been banned from landfills as of January 1, 2012.

The grants may not be used to pay for ongoing expenses such as staffing, collection and hauling costs. Priority will be given to new applicants. Applications may be submitted by Feb. 7, April 4, July 4, and Oct. 3, as long as grant funds are available. For more information or to request an application, call the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department at 815-732-4020, or visit www. oglecounty.org.

Stillman school official explains cash bond plan

its administration have a complex problem to solve. Like many school districts in the region and around the state, the money coming into the district from state and local funds has significantly decreased over the past several years, leaving the district in a financial bind. “We have no control over what the state gives us or when they give it to us,� said Interim Superintendent Dr. Bob Willis. “We also can’t control property values, unfortunately. Both have had a huge impact on our loss of revenue in adequately funding our schools, our staff

and our programs� With the loss of several hundred thousand dollars last year and again this year, plus the decision to cut between $300,000 and $500,000 this year alone in staff and programs, the board evaluated several revenue-generating options determining the sale of working cash bonds is the best short-term solution. “We want to be fiscally responsible with the least impact to taxpayers and the most positive impact on our students,� said school board president John Smith. “Essentially, the working cash bonds will give our

district a loan, bringing a three-year temporary increase in taxes in hopes that local property values will recover in three years and the State of Illinois will begin to fund school districts as state statute mandates, bringing our district and others like ours out of financial crisis.� School districts can increase revenue by levying (a formal way of requesting or asking) for additional taxes. Some aspects of a school budget can be taxed at a set amount by the state, others at a set amount by local voters, and yet others at a rate of

need as established through school code. An additional method of gaining revenue is to sell working cash bonds and then re-pay the bonds over a set period of time. “If our school board didn’t take this needed step, we would be having an entirely different conversation about what staff and which programs to begin cutting,� Willis continued. “That isn’t a conversation anyone wants to have.� With the sale of the working cash bonds, the district forecasts a consistent fund balance over the next five

years, keeping it financially solvent. Without the sale of the working cash bonds, below are the projections for the fund balance. In this scenario, the district will reach financial insolvency in three to four years. “Our community is receiving great value from our school district with a 95 percent graduation rate, the third highest state test scores of 20 high schools in the northern Illinois region and a 19 to 1 teacher-student ratio. We need to keep providing quality education for our kids,� Smith said.

Resident thanks postal carriers

BLOOMBERG AUCTION 309-644-1854 * www.auctionzip.com

Who’s got your back– and your back pocket?

Dear Editor, A big thanks to our local U.S. Postal Service letter carriers who have not missed a single day due to weather. Despite dangerously cold

temperatures they continued to walk the route, delivering mail and packages – and, they don’t jump into warm trucks after every stop, like other delivery services. Our letter carriers truly personify the motto, “Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night, (nor polar vortex!) shall keep us from our appointed rounds.� Residents can show appreciation by keeping sidewalks shoveled and salted so they can get to mailboxes easily. Thank you, local U.S.P.S. workers. Sandra Stengel Mt. Morris

Congratulations to Coach Engle Dear Editor, The purpose of this letter is to congratulate Doug Engle on his induction into the Illinois Track and Cross Country Coaches Association (ITCCCA) Hall of Fame. Since 1977, the coaches association has voted 5 to 7 coaches state wide into their Hall of Fame. The unusual fact about his induction is that Doug served

as an assistant his entire career. Most of the inductees were head coaches. Doug’s amazing record in the weight events warranted his induction into the ITCCCA Hall of Fame (16 All State Athletes, 32 individual qualifiers, 64 total state qualifiers). Doug becomes the third Oregon cross country/track and field coach to be inducted into the ITCCCA Hall of Fame. I was inducted in 1998, followed by Art Carlson in 1999. This is a major accomplishment for Oregon High School. Only 16 schools in the State of Illinois have three or more Hall of Famers. One school - Oak ParkRiver Forest has six inductees. One school - Palatine has five inductees. Seven schools - Bloom, Conant, Glenbard South, Lyons, Maine South, Naperville, York - have four inductees. Oregon High School joins East St. Louis, Lincoln, Evanston, Glenbard West, Sandburg, Schaumburg, and Thornton with three inductees.

administration building will come from the Long Range Planning Fund, as did the judicial center and the $7.5 million courthouse remodeling project completed in 2010. Revenues in that fund come from the host fees paid by garbage collection firms to dump refuse in the landfills within the county. The fees amount to approximately $3 million per year.

Twenty-three schools have two inductees. One hundred fourteen have one inductee. Also, Oregon is the only Class A school in the state with three coaches in the ITCCCA Hall of Fame. Special recognition should go out to all the Hawk track and field athletes that were on the squads during our coaching tenures. Also, a special thank you to the Oregon voters that gave Oregon High School an all weather track in 1975. A final congrats to Doug and fellow coach - Irv Sanderson of Prophetstown/ Erie - for their 2014 induction into the ITCCCA Hall of Fame. It was a well-deserved honor for both. Sincerely, Joe Mortimer Orland Park OHS Cross Country and Track Coach (1968-1972) P.S. Special recognition should go to Darren Moser (five time state medalist for the Oregon Hawks) for his tireless five year campaign to get Coach Engle into the ITCCCA Hall of Fame. Doug becomes only the fourth assistant-coach to be elected into the Hall of Fame out of the 215 inductees.

Finding time to exercise can prove difficult Finding time to exercise is no small feat for many men and women. Obligations at home and at the office can make it hard to fit in a workout, a familiar quandary for men and women with multiple commitments. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always easy to fit in a workout when juggling multiple responsibilities, men and women must consider the responsibility they have with regard to maintaining their physical and mental health. The United States Department of Health and Human Services advises that healthy adults get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic

activity, and that such activity should be spread out over the course of the week. In addition, the DHHS also advises that healthy adults include strength training exercises in their workout regimens at least twice a week. Such a workout schedule can improve both physical and mental health, making it easier for men and women to handle their hectic schedules. While such recommendations may seem manageable, many men and women still feel as if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not enough time in the day for them to incorporate a daily exercise regimen. The following are a few ways such men and women can

find time for fitness. * Take a walking lunch. Many professionals have heard of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;working lunch,â&#x20AC;? but those strapped for time to exercise might want to take a walking lunch instead. Rather than sitting at your desk or in your favorite booth at a nearby restaurant on your lunch hour each day, consider squeezing in some time to walk during those 30-60 minutes you normally spend eating or catching up on office gossip with coworkers. Invite a few coworkers along, walking to and from your favorite restaurant or finding a nearby park and going for a quick walk. This is an easy way to squeeze in the recommended 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each day, and you will no doubt feel more energized after lunch than if you had simply eaten without exercising. * Exercise in the morning. Research has shown that men and women who exercise in the mornings exercise on a more consistent basis than those who exercise later in the day, including after leaving the office at the end of the workday. When exercising in the Finding the time to workout will help improve the mental early morning hours, men and physical health of both men and women. and women are less likely

to encounter scheduling conflicts, as coworkers, colleagues and even the kids will likely still be asleep. That means fewer interrupted or missed workouts. * Prepare meals ahead of time. If working out in the morning simply wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out for you, then consider planning meals in advance so you can free up time between the office and dinner each night. For example, slow cookers and crockpots make it possible to start making dinner in the early morning and require little or no effort once you arrive home in the evening. Plan to cook a few meals each week in a slow cooker, which will free up time for you to workout when you would otherwise be preparing dinner. * Work while you workout. Smartphones and tablets have made it easier than ever to get work done while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re away from work. This includes getting some work done while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting in your weekly recommended aerobic activity on the treadmill, elliptical machine or exercise bike. Thanks to smartphones

Finding the time to workout will help improve the mental and physical health of both men and women. Sometimes having a partner can encourage exercise.

and tablets, you can now read and answer emails and work on some projects while you sweat away those extra pounds. * Get off the couch. Many men and women prefer to unwind on the couch as they catch up on their favorite television shows and movies. But such unwinding should not come at the expense of working out. Much like catching up on work at the gym, you also can catch up on your favorite shows and movies while at the gym. Many smartphones and

tablets now have apps that allow users to access subscription streaming services, so users who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find time to exercise should take advantage of such apps and watch their favorite shows and movies from the treadmill instead of the couch. Readers who can comfortably read while exercising can follow a similar route and read on the elliptical instead of sitting sedentary in a chair as they make their way through the latest bestseller.

SECTION B

Hawk bowlers finish third to earn sectional spot By Andy Colbert Reporter In a new format established by the IHSA, bowling teams must advance through regionals before moving onto a sectional. Previously, all teams started in at a sectional. The move will allow for a more equitable state tournament and weeds out some sectionals with poor competition. Though Oregon coach Al Nordman sees the purpose of it, the Hawk bowling program will have a much tougher road to state. Oregon did advance out of the Dixon regional with a third-place finish (top four teams advance), but now head to Rockford sectional where they will see some of the elite programs in the state. One of those schools, Rockford Guilford won the Dixon regional with a score of 6510 pins in the 6-game set. Freeport was second with 6303 and Oregon close behind at 6285. Rockford East edged Dixon by 19 pins for the final sectional berth. “I’m glad we got out,” Nordman said. “If Guilford doesn’t win state, I’ll be the most surprised person around.” The top scorer for Oregon

was Ian Starkey, who had a 1331, good for fourth overall. Chris Wiley of Freeport was individual champ with a 1379. “That’s two weeks in a row for Ian,” said Nordman, referring to Starkey’s high finish at the conference meet. “He had a 179 average coming out of the dual meets, but his game has come together. Besides a new ball, he’s changed his line and the way he shoots spares.” As a team, the Hawks were a model of consistency. They came within four pins of averaging at least 200 per bowler. Ryan Bennett was second behind Starkey at 1274. Justin Provo 1263, AJ Nordman 1221 and Joe Miranda 1196 rounded out the scoring on the Plum Hollow lanes. “It was a team effort,” Nordman said. “The bottom two guys (Bennett, Miranda) had the top scores in the afternoon. AJ had a strong morning, but couldn’t get a strike to fall. Justin was steady and consistent.” Of anything, it was picking up spares that enabled Oregon to earn a sectional berth. “Oh, that won it for us,” Nordman said. The Hawks led the entire tourney after the second game

before Guilford began to pull away. “Guilford lit it up in the third game and took control in the fourth and fifth game,” Nordman said. Oregon and Freeport were virtually deadlocked after the fifth game and the Hawks rolled a good No. 6. However, according to Nordman, Freeport shot great in the final game. “Realistically, third place was about as high as I thought we’d finish,” Nordman said. Now, Nordman and his bowlers have their sites on the Park Lanes in Rockford, site of this Saturday’s sectional. “It’s one of the highest scoring houses around,” Nordman said. “Guilford, Harlem and Hononegah will be way up there. Six teams make it to state, so we’ve got an outside shot.” Besides the six top teams, seven individuals not on an Oregon’s Ryan Bennett releases his ball during regional competition Jan. 18 at Plum advancing team, also go to Hollow, Dixon.

Lady Hawks defeat Eastland By Andy Colbert Reporter Sam Lambrigtsen and Emy Wright combined for 27 of Oregon 29 first half points against Eastland Tuesday. In the second half, the pair also got into the assist business, leading the Lady Hawks to a 69-53 nonconference win. “That was a fun one, getting everyone involved,” Oregon coach Kristy Eckardt said. “We needed to do that when they started keying on those two.” Lambrigtsen found Kimmie Janke under the basket for an easy basket to

start the second half. Wright then had consecutive assists to Madeline Sanders and split the defenders herself for another basket. Sanders advanced Oregon’s (15-7) third-quarter lead to 46-27 on another Lambrigtsen feed and an unexpected rout of one of the top 1A team in the area was on. “It was very difficult to stopping (Lambrigtsen),” Eastland coach Colleen Finn Henze said. “Every time you think you have her stopped, she takes one more explosive move.” In the first four minutes of the game, Lambrigtsen had

two steals, two blocks and seven points on her way to a game-high 27 points. Wright then took charge, scoring the next 10 points on accurate outside shooting. Lexis Macomber, a 6-foot post player who finished with 25 points, scored two quick baskets to start the second quarter and cut Oregon’s lead to 17-13. Not to worry, though, with Lambrigtsen on the floor. She was fouled and converted two free throws. On the next trip down the court, the all-state candidate split two defenders for another score. That drew the ire of Henze, who called timeout, slammed

her clipboard in disgust and chastised her defense. “We didn’t not play defense as well as we should,” Henze said. “We turned the ball over too much and didn’t get as many rebounds as we should with our height advantage.” Following the timeout, Lambrigtsen made it 23-14 in favor of Oregon off an acrobatic steal. She closed the half out with a two more baskets, the final coming on a Sanders steal and assist. Sanders chipped in 13 second half points to lead to Lady Hawks. Her most impressive basket came early in the fourth quarter after Turn to B2

Oregon hosted the annual quad meet against Princeton, Rockford Lutheran, and Riverdale on Saturday and defeated the Tigers and Rams, but missed an opportunity to knock off the 20th ranked Crusaders. Starting with Princeton, Oregon rolled up a 48-13 lead before the low weight forfeits made the final 48-25. In the last match, the Hawks cruised 49-24. But in the middle match, the Hawks came up two points short, 42-40. Lutheran was undefeated on the day, defeating Riverdale 43-30, and Princeton 47-20. The Rams took the Tigers 43-27. Oregon started in a hole against Princeton, giving up a forfeit at 120 and a 9-0 major decision at 126, Zim Granados taking the loss. The Hawks turned it around from there. At 132, Nathan Clark worked the butcher at 2:45 to get six for Oregon. The butcher also worked for Corey Grady at 138, reloading it at 3:45 for the fall.

Dominic Marchetti kept it rolling at 145 with a wing at 1:58. Tyler Staley took a forfeit at 152 to extend the lead to 24-10. Garrett Rude had a battle, hitting a turk for two backpoints with 30 seconds left in the match for a 2-0 win. John Ghibellini lost a reversal to his back for three points and he dropped a 7-2 decision. Jake Diehl was scoreless in the second when he hit an outside single to the back in a half nelson at 2:33. With a cradle at the first period buzzer, Tyler Blume added six points for Oregon to make the lead 39-13. Travis Burke drove his man to his back at 2:32 to extend the lead. Michael Smith had an escape and a takedown in the second to take a 3-2 win to finish the wrestling. Oregon forfeits at 106 and 113 wrapped up the meet. The Lutheran meet started with two exhibition matches. Skylar Carlson reversed out of a cradle to the back at Turn to B2

Oregon loses to Lutheran The varsity Lady Hawks fell to Rockford Lutheran in Big Northern Conference action on Jan. 17. Emy Wright led Oregon with 34 points, including five treys. Samantha Lambrigtsen followed with 18 points and made 12 of 14 free throws on the night. Megan Boehle had seven

points for Oregon (14-7, 5-2) while Madeline Sanders and Kimmie Janke scored four points and McKaylee Beeter added three. Lutheran (12-6, 5-2) had four players in double figures: Kailyn Stranbridge, 15; Ashley Kerestes and Bailley McGirk, 14 each; and Abby Wollacott, 12.

to the back, putting on a reverse half at 1:20. Varsity wrestling started with Granados at 126 against fifth ranked Caleb Micho who put Granados in a cradle at 4:28. Oregon had to forfeit 132, so the Hawks were down 12-0 right out of the gate. The teams traded pins at 138 and 145. Grady got six for Oregon with a double chicken wing at 1:36, but the Crusaders went back to a 12 point lead with Marchetti in an outside cradle at 1:35. Staley got the points back, running the wing at 1:34.

Rude had backpoints in every period to take a 17-5 major decision and four team points. The Hawks were down 1816. Shane Brogan with a wing in 59 seconds and Diehl with a counter to the back at 1:17, got back-to-back pins to give the Hawks the lead. Blume got caught in a cradle on the opening takedown and he was pinned in 49 seconds. The rest of the meet was forfeits. Burke and Stevens took free passes to get Oregon up 40-24, but the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Saders had wrestlers at all three lower

weights and the Hawk fans watched the score roll to 30, then 36, and finally to 42. It was a disappointing team loss. Riverdale started on top when Granados was turned in a crook at 1:20, but Oregon won the next six, four by falls, one forfeit, and a major decision. Grady opened it up with his third pin of the day, working a butcher at 1:55. Marchetti had a 9-0 lead when he scraped to the pin at 2:45. Staley got his second pin of the day at 152 with a double chicken wing in 58 seconds.

Rude took a forfeit at 160. Ghibellini had backpoints in every period to take a 12-0 major decision. Diehl drove his opponent to his back in a half nelson at 2:52. Oregon was up 34-6. The string of wins was broken when Blume was turned with a wing and a half at 1:13, but the Hawks would take the next two. Burke took a hard fought 1-0 win, riding tough for the third period. Smith won by injury default. The Rams won 106 and 113 by forfeits and Clark took a forfeit at 120 to end the meet.

Hawk wrestlers split meets with Mendota, Newman By Randy Holland Correspondent The Oregon wrestlers split two dual meets during the week, defeating Mendota 54-12 at the Blackhawk Center Jan. 14, and then making a run at Sterling Newman but falling short 37-33. The Comets are on the honorable mention list of ranked teams in Illinois. They defeated the Trojans 60-12 in the middle match. Also on the HM list was Stillman Valley, who hosted the Hawks and GenoaKingston on Thursday. After defeating the Cogs 41-21 in the opener, the Hawks lost to Stillman 5024. Mendota started in a hole after a bow and arrow at 1:52 by Tyler Blume at 195 and forfeits to David Labash at 220 and Michael Stevens at 285. There were double forfeits at 106 and 113, then the Trojans forfeited

to Zim Granados and Skylar Carlson to put Oregon up 30-0. At 132, Nathan Clark was pinned in a headlock at 3:40 and Oregon forfeited at 138. Dominic Marchetti got the points back with a reverse to the back at 3:48. Tyler Staley took a forfeit at 152 and Garrett Rude finished off the mat wrestling with a wing and a half nelson over the front at 1:43. The meet ended with forfeits to John Ghibellini and Jake Diehl. The Newman contest was also fast moving, with numerous forfeits on both sides. Oregon forfeited 113 and 138. Newman gave up free passes at 126, 182, and 195 with Carlson, Diehl, and Blume getting credit for the six point wins. 106 was a double forfeit. Stevens put Oregon on top to start with a headlock at 3:05. After the low weight forfeits, the score was knotted at six.

At 120, Granados got Garrett Webb, ranked eleventh at 113, and held the Newman wrestler to a 6-1 decision. Oregon regained the lead on the forfeit to Carlson, but Newman went ahead to stay with a pin over Clark at 132, a half nelson at 3:13. The forfeit at 138 extended the Comet lead to nine. Marchetti got three back with a 10-4 win, a chicken wing good for three points at the start of the third. Staley was no match for former state champion Jake Snow, pinned in a half nelson at 1:37. Rude also got a second ranked wrestler, his cousin Brady Rude. Garrett couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much going, losing a 9-0 major decision. The second ranked wrestlers kept on coming with Ghibellini facing Bryce Ivey and getting pinned in a chicken wing at 1:27. The Comets were up 37-

15, and despite two forfeits coming up, it was out of reach for Oregon. The meet ended with Labash running a wing at 3:57, tied at zero at the time of the fall. In junior varsity action, Shane Brogan pinned with a half nelson, Carlson hit a hip toss and pinned at 2:53, and Jacob Cox went out front with a wing in 29 seconds. On to Stillman and the Cogs. Oregon started in the hole with forfeits at 106 and 113, and 120 was a double forfeit. The Hawks quickly got the points back and went into the lead. At 126, Clark used the half nelson for a pin at 1:08. Carlson took a forfeit at 132 and a double forfeit at 132 followed to tie the score at 12. Dominic Marchetti lost just one reversal in a 17-2 technical fall at 5:20. Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead was short lived when Staley went over in a butcher at 1:45, but

regained when Rude won 5-0, riding out the last half of the match. Brogan and Diehl took forfeits to extend the lead to 14 points. At 195, Blume had his opponent on his back twice in a 4-0 decision. A forfeit went to Travis Burke and Stevens lost two takedowns to the wizzer in a 10-4 loss, making the final 41-21. Stillman jumped out to a 26-0 lead. After a forfeit by Oregon at 120, Clark lost a takedown to his back late to lose 11-7. Oregon forfeited 132 and 138. At 145, Dominic Marchetti was the victim of a 21-4 technical fall at 3:21 to 2013 state fifth place medalist, Andy Abitua. Staley took a forfeit to get the Hawks on the board and Rude doubled the score with a guillotine at 3:23. Brogan had an early lead but he gave up a throw and a pin at 5:12. In another match that was on the edge, Diehl

just missed the back on a reversal with 20 seconds left, going down 5-4 and Oregon was behind 35-12. Blume started a run, scraping to a pin at 2:33, and Travis Burke took a forfeit at 220 to close the gap to 11. Smith couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep it going. Two penalty points cost him in a 4-3. Stillman won by forfeits at 106 and 113 to put the meet away. JV winners were Mennen with a reverse into a headlock at 1:29, Jacob Cox with a butcher for three points in a 5-2 win, Carlson reversing into a headlock at 5:28. Labash countered and hooked up a wing in 47 seconds, Ghibellini scored a takedown to the back at 2:51, and Cole Burke used the bow and arrow at 1:53. Hopkins was stacked at 1:15, and Page lost by a half nelson at 1:52. Labash was pinned with a chicken wing at 1:49 in a second match.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ugly story and one that is being played over and over again at any school, U.S.A. So often, private schools take the brunt of the recruiting accusations. This time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public school. What Smith has done at H-F is nothing more than assemble an all-star team. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ranked No. 1 in 4A and get their best competition from tournaments in Arizona, Tennessee and Ohio. A team like this denigrates the IHSA state tournament. No longer are schools like Homewood-Flossmoor a direct by-product of the communities they serve. The charm and character of the state tourney was that we could root for teams from towns, villages and cities that were representative of the kids that grew up there.

It was an event about community as much as anything. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become about who can amass the biggest war chest. This has been going on in boys basketball for quite some time and attendance at the state tourney has plummeted.

Sports Column Lawsuit shows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with prep sports By Andy Colbert Reporter A former Oregon girls basketball player was prominently displayed in the news recently, but the news was more off the court than on it. In a lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court against Homewood-Flossmoor coach Tony Smith on behalf of an unnamed basketball player on the team, it is alleged that Smith improperly brought in transfer recruits, including Lexi Smith, who played for Oregon two years ago. The suit, which was brought by a parent, states

that the transfers came in and took starting positions from the incumbents and demoralized the players, parents and the community. Those filing the suit want Smith suspended and the transfers, four from Bolingbrook and two from other schools, declared ineligible until the matter is resolved. This is coach Smith and Lexi Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (no relation) first year at HomewoodFlossmoor after being at Bolingbrook the previous year, where Tony Smith had a 326-36 record and four state titles. This lawsuit does not bring to light any injustices, but showcases what is wrong with high school sports. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with Lexi Smith. She was at Oregon as a freshman and sophomore and

moved on to Bolingbrook, a perennial basketball power under Tony Smith, for her junior year. Then to follow Smith to H-F, along with three other girls indicates to me that basketball is the sole factor in choosing a high school. Rather one-sided isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it to let basketball rule oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment in a school. Tony Smith, who by all accounts is a tremendous coach, must have a higher calling as a pied piper, though. For four players from your previous school to magically appear at your new school tells me that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t by mere coincidence. Where do the returning H-F players fit into the scenario? On the bench and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place that can be disconcerting to mommy and

daddy. Just because your child isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receiving playing time, is the courtroom a place to vent your anger? Sure, you may be unhappy that your kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting position has been taken by an outsider, but this is the real world. If as a parent we feel the need to solve a perceived problem for our child, that child will be deprived of a far greater good from having grown from it. There is considerably more to be gained by adversity than having something fixed in a legalistic manner. But, to try to get a parent to see that can be impossible at times. There is really no protagonist in this drama, as all parties appear to symptomatic of a disease that has spread throughout high school sports.

The Byron Forest Preserveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keller Education Center.

Keller Education Center receives energy award The Byron Forest Preserve Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keller Education Center has received Platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) in Washington, D.C. The certification, announced in December by the USGBC, recognizes the Byron Forest Preserve Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong commitment to the environment and its leadership in sustainability from start to finish in construction of the Keller Education Center building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased and proud to be recognized for the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term commitment to energy sustainability and the environment and are thrilled to receive a Platinum Award for this project,â&#x20AC;? said Todd Tucker, Executive Director for the Byron Forest Preserve District. An internationallyrecognized green building program, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. The Keller Education Center houses the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preschool education classes, summer childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education programs and can be used as a teaching tool regarding green building technology. The Platinum Award is the highest possible rating given by the USGBC and recognizes the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many energy-efficient and

green-design features. Some of these include: the use of renewable energy solar panels and a wind turbine; geothermal ground source heat pump; recycled rubber floor tiles, glass and concrete countertops, and plastic restroom partitions; use of natural light and interior lighting control systems; use of Forest Stewardship Council-certified sustainable wood products; improved indoor air quality through the use of low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints; reflective metal roofing; low flow water closets and faucets; and preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel efficient vehicles. The Keller Education Center is one of 46 Platinum LEED-certified commercial building projects that are publicly identified in Illinois and one of only three Platinum LEED-certified education buildings in Illinois. The building is also the first Platinum LEED- certified building in Ogle County. In honor of the distinction, Tucker said the district will be receiving a plaque from the USGBC for display at the Keller Education Center. The district and its Green LEED team have been working for several years to meet and in many cases exceed, standards required for LEED certification. Team members include Joy Bliton, LEED Accredited Professional; Dave Kafer, Principle Architect; Rockford Structures; and the Byron Forest Preserve District Board of Commissioners and staff.

W. Walter Spangler William Walter “Walt” Spangler, 92, Oregon, died Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014 at Oregon Living and Rehabilitation Center. She was born April 20, 1921 to Mervin Stanley and Grace (Hill) Spangler in Daysville, where he attended school and remained a resident his entire life.

Walt retired in 1988. Walt and Julia spent their retirement years tending an orchard they had planted some years prior to his retirement. Many children’s groups were treated to teaching field trips to the Spangler Orchard and Julia always saw that they got applesauce bars as a treat.
