Committee to recommend firm for fund audit County board to vote May 30 By Vinde Wells Editor The Ogle County Sheriff’s Tow Fund is one step closer to being completely scrutinized. The county’s Executive Committee voted Tuesday

night to approve hiring Sikich LLP, Naperville, to do a forensic audit of the controversial Tow Fund from 2012 up to the present. The full county board is expected to vote on the measure at its May 20 meeting. Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said the fee for the initial investigation is

$7,500. If fraud is uncovered during the audit, the costs will increase. The initial investigation will document procedures used in the Tow Fund since it was implemented in 2011 and identify any abuses. “As I understand this, they won’t be looking at anything in particular. They will be looking at everything,�

Gouker said. “One of the things we get out of this study is a reorganization of this fund.� Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn came under fire in the last several months over expenditures from the Tow Fund, which included purchasing a new vehicle, flowers for Secretaries Day, a tent at the county fair, and

$4,000 for the department’s Facebook page to be managed. In what seems to be a reversal of his previous stance, Gouker called for the forensic audit at last month’s county board meeting. Board member Richard Petrizzo, Davis Junction, made a motion for a forensic audit of the Tow Fund as well

as the sheriff’s credit card expenditures at the board’s Jan. 21 meeting. However, Gouker said the matter could not be voted on then because it was not on the agenda. Petrizzo’s subsequent efforts to have the matter placed on the agenda were unsuccessful. Turn to A2

Raises for Ogle officials? By Vinde Wells Editor

Raises for Ogle County elected officials will be considered by the county board next week. The County’s Finance, Revenue & Insurance Committee voted Tuesday to recommend the raises to the full county board on May 20. The committee approved increasing the annual salaries for the clerk, treasurer, and circuit clerk from $68,500 to $75,000 and the sheriff from $81,500 to $82,500. County board chairman Kim Gouker said the raises are an adjustment for several salary freezes over the last few years. “These department heads have had only one raise in the last four years and that was for $1,000,� he said. By state statute, salaries for elected officials are set once every four years.

A Loves Park man is being held in the Ogle County Jail on a $1 million bond on a charge of predatory criminal sexual assault. Ogle County Sheriff’s Police arrested Kenneth A. Turner, 22, in Loves Park on May 8. According to a press release from Sheriff Michael Harn, an investigation revealed that the activities which led to the arrest are believed to have occurred at a residence in Davis Junction. Turner was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

Revenue streams to be point of discussion for BHC Park and school district to talk about agreement By Vinde Wells Editor Uncertain revenue streams will be an important factor in the discussions this year as Oregon school and park district officials hammer out a new agreement for the Blackhawk Center (BHC). The BHC, which was completed in 1997, is owned by the park district and was built to meet the school district’s needs. It is attached

to Oregon High School by a corridor. Under the present threeyear intergovernmental agency agreement, which expires Aug. 31, the park district manages and staffs the facility, and the school district pays rent as the primary user. Both school superintendent Tom Mahoney and park district executive director Erin Folk said Tuesday that negotiations are in the very early stages and probably won’t be finalized until sometime in August. “We’re going through the process of negotiating a new contract,� Folk said. “It may

change and it may not.� Shrinking revenues is the issue facing both sides. Although the school district pays $168,000 annually in rent, that covers only 70 percent of the total operating expenses of $235,000. At a committee meeting in late March, park district board members discussed their concern that revenues will decrease if the assessed value of Exelon’s Byron Generating Station is reduced. Exelon officials have filed appeals of their 2012 and 2013 assessments with the Illinois Property Tax Appeal The Oregon Park District’s Blackhawk Center sits just west of the Oregon High School, Turn to A2 pictured in the background.

Oregon School District to get $168,000 in grants $130,933 for geothermal heat heating project By Vinde Wells Editor

Center to be a discussion topic From A1 Board (PTAB). According to the committee meeting minutes, Folk told the committee that the park district needs to find ways to reduce costs at the BHC and may want to consider turning over ownership to the school district because 90 percent of the facility’s use is for school functions. Mahoney said he is sympathetic to the park district’s financial concerns because the school district

has its own problems with dwindling state aid and other state education funding. “From my perspective, we need to look at all the options available to us. What is the challenge for us now is finances with what’s going on with the state,� he said. “I entirely understand their [the park district’s] position. We’re all in the same boat though.� The school district and park district first entered into a 10-year intergovernmental agreement concerning the

BHC in September of 1995. The agreement has been renewed and altered to meet the needs of both districts over the years. Under the terms of the agreement, the school district has priority use of the BHC and the two districts jointly work out annual schedules. High school physical education classes, athletic practices, and athletic events, including tournaments are held at the BHC. Some park district events are also held at the BHC.

Two grants totaling more than $168,000 were recently awarded to the Oregon School District. Besides the Illinois School Security Grant for $37,450 that was announced last week, the district has also been awarded a Illinois Clean Energy Foundation for $130,933. The Illinois Clean Energy Foundation grant will be used toward the district’s new geo-thermal heating project

that is expected to greatly improve the district’s ability to heat and cool three of its buildings. Bill Nesemeier, facilities and grounds director, said the new system will be more efficient than the current one and is expected to reduce energy costs significantly. The Illinois School Security Grant will be used to improve security at three of the district’s schools by creating secure vestibules. The improvements will heighten overall campus security, decreasing the chances of any unauthorized person entering the schools undetected. Superintendent Tom Mahoney said the grant money will offset the cost of

building improvements being done this summer. The upgrades comprise a $7.5 million in Health & Life Safety projects approved by the school board last fall. The majority of the Health & Life Safety work — an estimated $7.1 million — will be for the new heating and cooling system. Included in the rest are more security cameras at various school entrances, repairs to the doors of the band room at Oregon High School, additional electrical outlets and upgrades to transformers at OHS and Oregon Elementary School, removing and replacing existing phone cables, and adding air-conditioning in six server rooms.

Ogle board to vote on firm May 20 From A1 In February, the board diminished the sheriff’s control over the Tow Fund by limiting how it could be spent and requiring the approval of expenditures by the county committee that oversees the sheriff’s budget. Harn was defeated in the March 18 primary election in his bid for the Republican Party nomination for sheriff by Brian VanVickle, a Rochelle police officer. At its April 15 meeting, the county board approved a resolution establishing the Tow Fund. Gouker said that although the board approved implementing administrative tow fees in 2011, the ordinance governing that did not actually establish the Tow Fund. The new resolution mandated that Tow Fund deposits are limited to only administrative fees collected when a vehicle is towed, impounded, or seized during a criminal investigation. It further requires that the Tow Fee will be handled by

the Ogle County Treasurer’s office, rather than the sheriff, as in the past. Treasurer John Coffman said the Tow Fund was turned over to his office April 15 when received a check for $51,932.07 from the sheriff’s department. Gouker said Tuesday that the forensic audit will verify that the amount of the check was correct. In a related issue, Gouker said the Executive Committee will study removing some departments from the sheriff’s oversight. He said the changes will be made in the next few months. The changes come on the heels of a recommendation from the Ogle County League of Women Voters that the sheriff should have fewer duties. League member Diane McNeilly, Rochelle, told the county board in April that a recent study of several neighboring counties showed that the Ogle County Sheriff is responsible for more departments, employees, and money than his counterparts.

Besides overseeing the Sheriff’s and Corrections Departments, Harn is also in charge of the Ogle County Emergency Management Agency (OCEMA), the county’s Buildings & Grounds, Information Technology, telecommunications, and security for the courts as well as all county properties. Gouker said some departments — OCEMA, Buildings & Grounds, Information Technology, and Building Security — will be realigned so that the sheriff is no longer in charge of them. Instead the heads of those areas will report to a county committee. “This has nothing to do with the job the current sheriff is doing. It’s too many duties,� Gouker said. “This has morphed over the last two decades when a lot of extra duties were given to the sheriff. Instead, we want these entities to report to the board through a committee rather than through an elected official who didn’t have that statutory authority.�

City of Oregon to flush fire hydrants The City of Oregon will be flushing fire hydrants on the following dates: May 12-16 — north of Ill. 64 (Washington Street) and the east side and May 19-23 — south of Ill. 64 (Washington Street)

The flushing is a requirement of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and a recommendation of the Insurance Services Office. City water may be rusty during this operation and

residents should refrain from washing clothes, etc., during the hours of the flushing operation. At night if your water is rusty, allow the cold water to run until it clears.

The Oregon Republican Reporter is published weekly by Ogle County Newspapers, a division of the B.F. Shaw Printing Co. 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. Morris Times, Forreston Journal, and Polo's Tri-County Press.

Memories from Mary Margaret Short Ferguson 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 The following memories of the Oregon Depot were shared earlier this year by Mary Margaret Short Ferguson. “In 1932, at the age of 10, my family moved from Aurora to Oregon as my dad, Robert I. Short, had been transferred to be the agent for the CB&Q railroad. I have many, many childhood memories of the depot. “I remember how cold that old freight house was in the winter. Dad always had to keep the pot belly stove in the freight house stoked up as it provided the only heat in the building. “Mr. Himert used to pick up and deliver some of the freight shipments to various businesses around town. “I liked to be there when those old steam engines would come puffing into Oregon, blowing their whistles and engineers waving. “The engines were fired up with coal and the black smoke would come pouring out. “Sometimes they had to stop and fill up with water, other times I remember Dad would go out with some kind of a hoop which had a note on it and the engineer would catch the note while going by. “There was a long line of freight cars. Sometimes you would see hobos riding in the open cars. “The little caboose was at the end with the brakeman watching for any hot spots on wheel gear boxes. Sometimes I got to ride to Mt. Morris with Jimmy Kervin (brakeman) and Frank Fruit (engineer) on the train to pick up train cars from the Kable Printing Plant. “It was an extra special

The public is invited stop in for a tour of the restored depot or to “talk history� with Dick, who is a member of the Ogle County Historical Society. treat to take the early morning train into Chicago for the day. “The dining car had white tablecloths, silver and waiters. “Mr.Vickerson was the Chief Steward in charge of the dining car. He would get off the train and stay the night in the house across the street from the depot. “At that time, it was known as Mrs. Lester’s Boarding House, which was still there when I was in Oregon in October 2013. “The next morning Mr. Vickerson would leave on the early morning train and have the dining car ready for breakfast meal. “Some of my fondest memories were the train trips to Chicago for the day, the Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute, zoo, and the Field Museum (which I loved). “The World’s Fair was in Chicago in 1933 through 1934 and Dad took me many times to see this grand exhibit. “At Christmas time, my mother and I would go to see the beautifully decorated department stores like

Marshall Fields and Carson Pirie Scott. “Mother and I also went to Chicago to attend the opening of “Gone with the Wind� at the movie theatre. “This was really a big event to go to the movie! I loved all my day trips with my parents. In 1940 and 1941, my mother and I went to California on the train. “Back in those early days, you would ride in coach with the windows open and soot coming in the windows. “The Amtrak passenger cars of today are certainly different than the old train passenger cars of yesterday. “In 1941, Clara Rose Wilmarth Speed and I graduated from Scovill Business School at Sterling. “Then we got jobs at Savanna Ordinance Depot R. I. Short and Harriet Lowden Madlener at the depot in 1958. Photo supplied by Otto Dick in Savanna. Every weekend we would go back and forth on the train from Savanna to Oregon until 1945 when World War II ended. “In 1948, my daughter, Sandra (age 2) and I went by train to Ft. Lewis, Wash., and boarded an Army transport ship for Japan where my husband was stationed. Then again in 1954 we made the same trip back to Japan. “Many of my early life and school years were spent in Oregon around the depot with my Dad. “He retired from the CB&Q after 50 years. Dad Drayman Gus Himert picks up a load at the Oregon depot. Photo supplied by Otto Dick died in 1961. “He worked hard but loved the railroad and especially those old engines.�

Batik demonstration is May 24 Join in at the Eagleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest Art Group (ENAG) studio in Conover on Saturday, May 24 at 10 a.m. for a step-bystep batik demonstration by Barb Lundeen. All are welcome, members and non-members alike. The program is free and open to the public. Lundeen will demonstrate a modification of the traditional batik methods, using easily available materials: soy wax, paraffin and washable acrylic fabric paint.

Some people have hesitated to try batik, because it seemed tedious. It is a waxresist dyeing of cloth. This modified version has made the process much easier. Lundeen learned this technique at a workshop in Mississippi at the Mary Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Keefe Pavilion. She has given batik workshops for adults at the ENAG studio and in her home. She has also led a workshop for children at The Next Picture Show in Dixon.

They will be able to sign up for a daytime batik workshop at the studio which is being planned for May. Lundeen will supply all materials and tools.

Spring fly-in breakfast served at Ogle Airport The local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA #682) is sponsoring a pancake breakfast with all the trimmings at the Ogle County Airport on Sunday, May 18 from 7 a.m. to noon. The airport is located between Oregon and Mt. Morris on Ill. 64. The entire family can enjoy Eickmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole hog sausage, scrambled eggs, and small mountains of pancakes with all the fixings. Volunteers including local pilots, student pilots, members of the Rock River Flyers flying club, the Ogle County Pilots, EAA members, Blackhawks Crossing 4-H Club and other volunteers who contribute their time and effort to make the big Sunday breakfast a success. The EAA #682 uses the Ogle County airport as its

base in part because of the well-maintained runway and grounds of the airport. Glenn Hake, Byron, the president of the chapter, said this airport is maintained like a park and he enjoys flying off of the grass runway. The airport was recognized by the Illinois Department of Transportation as the General Aviation Airport of the year in 2007. The award was in recognition of continued efforts in maintenance excellence and contributions to the enhancement of aviation education and community development. Doug Schiller, Oregon, the airport manager, said the big advantage at the airport is the lack of congestion and low costs. Tie downs and hangar leases are available. Nick Lung, Leaf River, one of the founding members, said

that there has been increased activity and improvements at the airport in the last few years. Flight instruction, biennial reviews, tail-wheel check out is available from instructors using the airport. The airport started out more than 30 years ago and the airport remains a public use airport without taxpayer support. More information is available at www. A World War II style Hangar Dance is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 16 and the annual Hog Roast is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 12. The other two upcoming events include breakfasts July 4 and Sept. 14 . The Sept. 14 breakfast will feature a car show with all proceeds of the car show benefiting the Blackhawks Crossing 4-H Club.

Hog farmers lost baby pigs to fast moving virus By Vinde Wells Editor A fast-moving virus that attacks pigs dealt a Polo farmer significant losses earlier this year. Brian Duncan, who raises hogs northwest of Polo, estimates he lost 1,000 to 1,200 baby pigs in March after they contracted porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went about a month without weaning any little pigs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually we wean about 300 a week.â&#x20AC;? While any hog can catch the virus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially deadly for very young piglets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It kills all of them under 14 days old,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very aggressive virus. Once it hits, it moves very quickly.â&#x20AC;? Older pigs fare better if they contract the virus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it hits anything over 14 days old, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like a mild flu,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely devastating to a little pig.â&#x20AC;? The sows on the farm also contracted the virus. They were â&#x20AC;&#x153;off feedâ&#x20AC;? for a couple

of days, Duncan said, and then returned to normal. It takes a little time to ride out the effects of the virus, he said, but currently even his youngest pigs are thriving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes some time for the sows to build up immunity to pass on to the pigs,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still present on the farm, but the sows have enough immunity now to protect the pigs.â&#x20AC;? He is, however, taking extra precautions to keep PEDV at bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a lot of cleaning anyway, but now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing extra steam-cleaning and disinfecting,â&#x20AC;? he said. Across the county, Kim Huntley, Chana, who finishes 27,000 hogs annually for market is also taking precautions against PEDV. His hogs have not contracted the virus and are past the age when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have baby pigs. They come in here at 50 pounds. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as susceptible. They can get it but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t die from it,â&#x20AC;? he said.

None the less, Huntley is being careful. Clothing and boots are removed before leaving either of the two sites where he raises pigs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our clothes and boots are site specific,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go from one place to the other. And we wear plastic gloves.â&#x20AC;? The tires on trucks delivering feed are sprayed with disinfectant, and truck drivers wear plastic, disposable boots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a serious deal, no question about it,â&#x20AC;? Huntley

said. PEDV is a coronavirus that infects the cells that line the small intestine of a pig, causing severe diarrhea and dehydration. The virus usually kills young piglets within five days of contracting it. PEDV was first discovered in Europe, but soon traveled to Asian countries. It was discovered in the U.S. in the spring of 2013 and in Canada earlier this year. Duncan said he has not

determined how it got to his operation. The virus is not a danger to humans. It is not passed from pigs to humans or other animals. The meat of affected hogs is safe to eat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It poses no danger whatsoever to humans,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said. In fact, the only effect is likely a hike in pork prices. Duncan said the recent episode reminded him of a similar virus that affected hogs when he was a

youngster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to TGE (transmissible gastroenteritis). Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both coronaviruses. Our pigs got TGE when I was a kid,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this is like TGE on steroids.â&#x20AC;? No vaccines are currently available to combat PEDV, he said, although animal pharmaceutical companies are working on developing one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most vaccines donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work very well on viruses,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said.

Churchesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; potato, salad bar is May 21 The Oregon United Method Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Freedom Lutheran Church and First Presbyterian Church, all of Oregon, invite the public to their potato and salad bar fundraiser for Weird Animals Vacation Bible School (VBS) on Wednesday, May 21 at the Oregon United Methodist Church.

It will be held at the Oregon United Methodist Church from July 14 -18 with a wrap-up event on July 19 at

Freedom Lutheran. During the Weird Animals VBS, kids will learn about some of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creations. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing, play teamwork-building games, have treats, and make projects to take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through a program called God Sightings. Each day concludes with

The Tail Endâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this time at 11:15 a.m. Weird Animals VBS is for kids entering PreK - entering sixth grade and will run from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. each day.

Lady Hawks fly high at BNC meet to finish second Cydney Long leads the way for Oregon By Ty Reynolds Sauk Valley Media The Oregon Hawks were flying in rarefied air all evening long May 8 at the Big Northern girls track meet … and they more than held their own. The Hawks led most of the way, only to see Burlington Central pass them up in the final event for the Rockets’ 10th conference championship in 11 years. But that didn’t dampen the mood in the Oregon huddle as the final scores were announced. The Hawks’ cheers echoed off the empty Hinders Field bleachers longer than the Rockets’ celebration of the victory. “You’re always more proud of your team, happier for your teammates than for yourself,” said junior Sarah Lauer, one of three Hawks to score at least 18 points by herself. “It means just as much to us to finish second as a team as it does for any of us to win individual events.” Burlington Central finished with 91 points, six more than Oregon’s 85. Byron was third with 69, with Marengo right behind in fourth (68). Rock Falls finished ninth (30 points). Hawks senior Cydney Long was the star of the meet, winning the 100 hurdles and placing third in the 200 (27.17 seconds), 300 hurdles (47.92) and long jump (15 feet, 6 1/2 inches). The 28 points tallied for

those four finishes topped the next-best individual point scorers by eight points. The 100 hurdles also made for the most dramatic finish of the night. She avenged a recent loss to Burlington Central’s Bryce Weinrich, blazing to a time of 14.98 seconds to edge Weinrich by two-hundredths of a second. “That was one hell of a race,” Long said, smiling as Weinrich offered her a hug. “I got third to her and another girl at a meet in Ottawa, and I told myself before the race today, ‘You got this.’ It was definitely a confidencebuilder for the rest of the night.” Wienrich was on Long’s right hip the entire race, with both girls making a clean run. As they cleared the final hurdle, Long followed her coaches’ advice and turned on whatever afterburners she had left. “The coaches always yell, ‘Dig’ when someone’s close and I need to go faster,” Long said. “They said it way more than a couple of times during that race, and I knew I had to just go for it.” Teammates Shannon Cullen and Lauer tied for fifth individually with 18 points apiece. Cullen won the shot put (37-4½) and took second in discus (107-9½), while Lauer won the triple jump (33-1½) and was runner-up in the long jump (15-7½), just ahead of Long. Cullen and Kelsey Pudlas started the meet off strong for Oregon, as Pudlas added a win in the pole vault (9-6) to Cullen’s victory in the shot put. Those were the first two events to be announced, with both getting in before the longest of the three weather

delays. Cullen had mixed emotions on the night, as the senior was thrilled to win the shot put but a bit disappointed to not win the discus. “I’m happy, glad I finally threw closer to my full potential in the shot put, which I haven’t been doing lately,” Cullen said. “I threw two 37s, so I was proud of that. “The discus, I’m a little mad I got second, but I’m happy for the girl who won [Winnebago’s Allison Klosinski]. We’ve been at four meets together already this year, and every time I always seem to beat her by just a little bit. I guess second is all right, when she’s the one who won it.” Lauer was ecstatic about winning the triple jump. After finishing fifth in each of the last 2 years at the BNC Meet, the junior won the title this time around by 12½ feet. Her second in the long jump was just icing on the cake. “I wasn’t going for first, I just wanted to improve from fifth,” Lauer said. “I just focused on warming up between jumps, and not letting the weather delays bother me. I just kept my legs loose and didn’t worry about anything but my jumps.” The weather wreaked havoc with everyone, but especially the 800 runners. The longest delay came around 5:35 p.m., when lightning was spotted in the distance; soon after the athletes returned to the field, around 6:15 p.m., a second storm cell moved in and forced another delay. In all, those two delays lasted nearly two hours. Even worse, they forced

the stoppage of the 3,200 relay in mid-race, after the first two legs had already completed their 800s. Still, it accounted for Rock Falls’ best finish of the meet, in second place with a time of 10:06.31, 1.15 seconds behind winner Harvard. But it took a lot out of junior Dallas Clevenger, who was one of the pre-race favorites in the open 800 and 400. She took third in the 800 (2:31.26), and faded to a non-scoring eighth in the 400 (1:06.07) a few events later. “It was awful; I don’t even really like the 800, and I had to run it three times tonight,”

Clevenger said. “Running that leadoff leg twice was the worst, and it took the most out of me mentally, because you just know you’re going to be dying by the end of it the second time, then the third time [in the open 800] especially. Bailie Smith, Makaley Velazquez and Katie Anderson joined Clevenger in the 3,200 relay. The Rockets also got a fourth from Michaela Busch in the high jump (4-10), and fifths from Velazquez in the 1,600 (5:36.83), Sydney Arickx in the 200 (27.82), Emma Miller in the 100 hurdles ( 17.19), and Molly

Mammosser in the long jump (15-0). Mackenzie Skoumal added a fourth for Oregon in the 400 (1:03.17), while Karissa Corbin was fifth in the shot put (32-9 1/2) and Whitney Long was fifth in the high jump (4-10). There was one BNC Meet record broken when Byron’s Kelsey Hildreth ran the 3,200 in 10:35.95 to top the old record set in 2008. Hildreth also won the 1,600 (5:13.37), missing the meet record by two seconds. Oregon and Byron will compete in the Class 1A girls track sectional this Friday at the Byron Sectional.

On May 8, the Hawks defeated Stillman Valley 4-1. Oregon posted four runs in the first inning and that was all the support Matt Murray needed in a Big Northern West win at home. Murray allowed two hits and one run in seven innings, while striking out 10 and walking two. Murray also had the game’s lone extrabase hit with a double. Reynolds drove in two runs, while Blume had an

RBI and a stolen base. On May 6, Oregon fell to Stillman Valley 3-0. Reynolds and Blume each had a pair of hits for the Hawks in the road loss to the

Sports Column Kudos to OHS girls track team at BNC meet By Andy Colbert Reporter After being out of town last week, it was a nice to come back and hear about the Oregon girls track team nearly winning the Big Northern conference meet. Burlington Central won its 10th title in 11 years, but the Lady Hawks came within 9185 of them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge accomplishment for such a smallish squad and a case of the Oregon girls performing when it mattered the most. Foremost was the 14.98 in the 100 hurdles by Cydney Long, which ranks as the second best time in 1A this year. Long and thrower Shannon

Cullen have provided the nucleus and will both will contend for individual state titles. If there were a year for Oregon to make a push for a state trophy (and the first in any girls sport) at the IHSA meet, this would have been it. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen though. There is enough talent in the school to make a run, but some of those girls are not out for track. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame, but I respect any athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right not to be out for a particular sport, be it track or anything. This Friday, the team has a chance to knock Byron off from its sectional perch. Like Burlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BNC domination, Byron will be going for a 10th title in 11 years. Byron edged Oregon to win the Ogle county meet and Oregon beat the Lady Tigers at the Oregon Invite. It will be an interesting watching the action unfold

to see if the Lady Hawks can put an exclamation point on their season by winning the sectional. Oregon did lose Hailey Long a couple weeks ago to an injury and maybe if she was in the line-up, they could have scraped up enough points to win the BNC. But, with the way BNC champs like jumper Sarah Lauer and Kelsey Pudlas, who improved nearly two feet in the pole vault as a late, have provided a supporting cast, anything is possible. *** In his part time, Oregon assistant football coach Steve Rhoads has a company called American Iron, which provides strength-training equipment for sports teams. At a collegiate national strength and conditioning conference in Salt Lake last week, I met up with him after transporting his gear out and helped set up and tear down his booth at the show. A one-man operation, the 1992 Hawk graduate even fabricates the product himself. After lugging some of it around, I can tell you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

made from quality material by its sheer weight. What stood out most about the experience was seeing how much difference the collegiate sporting world is today, versus 20-30 years ago. It is like a mutant virus out of control. There is a spending frenzy and arms race between college sport programs, with football leading the parade, which appears to be unabated. Besides the show, we also went on a tour of the University of Utah athletic facilities and like other major campuses across the country; so much is new and shiny, and very expensive. It has too be, or else the recruits will go elsewhere. And, if the recruits donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come, the coach gets fired, as the stakes keep getting higher and higher and money dictates everything. I know it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheap for Steve to go all the way out in Utah to demonstrate his equipment, but with exorbitant college athletic budgets, it can be a lucrative market to tap into. But, what is taking place

American adults live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition. Sinnissippi Centers is here to help.

in intercollegiate athletics sure seems contrary to what higher education is about. *** In regard to the column two weeks ago on underage drinking, a good friend called and said I left the wrong message by referring to alcohol as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;solutionâ&#x20AC;?. To him, it sounded like I was giving validation for young people to drink. The fact of the matter, though, is that alcohol can be a solution to get through life for some (not all) people. The real problem for them is trying to live life when the drinking is stopped. A personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, finances, legal problems, job/school standing, etc, will improve if drinking is stopped. However, those are outside circumstances and do not carry the same weight as how we feel on the inside. What if feelings of irritability, low self-esteem, resentment, selfishness, discontentment, remorse, social anxiety, restlessness, insecurity, etc, continue to rule our lives? In reality, that stuff becomes more pronounced without alcohol and therein lays the real problem. That is, why would people continue to drink if they know it will create (external)

problems in their lives? Because it has become the solution to what ails them on the inside and how they feel on the inside is of far greater importance than any consequences caused by alcohol. This is especially true for underage drinkers who risk breaking the law to do it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the power that alcohol can have. However, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? solution, but rather a perceived solution. Perhaps, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the confusion comes from and I apologize for any misunderstanding on word usage. There is only one solution to everything in life and from it stems a spiritual basis. The answer is always in spirituality.

June hearing set for woman charged with theft, fraud Pre-trial conf. is set for June 19 in Lee County By Vinde Wells Editor The trial of a former Oregon woman charged with theft and financial fraud has been rescheduled for the second time. A jury trial for Audrey (Stanley) Smith, 32, Dixon, was originally set to begin Jan.13, but Lee County Judge Ron Jacobson moved it to begin March 10 at a mid-December hearing. But at a hearing in late February, that trial date was stricken, and according to

court records no new one has been set. Smith is scheduled for a pre-trial conference on June 19. A Lee County Grand Jury indicted Smith March 6, 2013 on charges of theft, financial fraud, computer fraud, financial exploitation of an elderly person, and wire fraud. The case was investigated by the Illinois State Police. The state attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is handling the prosecution. Smith, who has pleaded not guilty, is being represented in court by Sterling attorney James Fagerman. Court records say Smith made a series of withdrawals from an elderly womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

bank accounts and took out loans on the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property. The charges involve accounts at Amcore and Midland States Banks, authorities said. Smith was manager of the Oregon branch of Rockfordbased Amcore Bank, which was sold to Effingham-based Midland States Bank in

January 2011. Court records donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t indicate whether the alleged crimes are related to Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role as a bank employee. The bill of indictment accuses Smith of making withdrawals between Aug. 2, 2006 and April 15, 2010, from accounts held at Amcore and Midland States in the name of the victim, a

Dixon resident. The documents say Smith also took out a mortgage loan on the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and, as a result, obtained more than $100,000.

residential mortgage loan from Amcore Bank on property owned by the victim in the 800 block of North Ottawa Avenue.

The documents also say that in April of 2007, Smith, using the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power of attorney but without her authority, took out a $55,000

According to the documents, in April of 2010 Smith transferred $1,855 from the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank account to Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account without the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consent.

Three Rockford residents were charged last week with a residential burglary near Stillman Valley. According to a press release from Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn, deputies arrested Curtis A. Clark, 32, Keisha M. Latham, 29, and

Melissa A. Salsbury, 41, on May 8 on warrants for residential burglary. They were arrested after Ogle County detectives, working with Winnebago County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Police, recovered stolen property from a vehicle occupied by

the three. The stolen property was taken April 8 during a burglary at a Hales Corner Road residence. Bond was set at $250,000 each. Salsbury remains in the Ogle County Jail. Latham and Clark are not

being held at the jail. According to the press release, detectives are investigating other residential burglaries in rural Stillman Valley and rural Monroe Center. Clark, Latham, and Salsbury are persons of interest in those investigations.
