AT LAST!

Black Hawk repairs begin BY VINDE WELLS vwells@oglecountynews.com Jubilation greeted the crew that arrived this week to finally take the first step toward the long-awaited repairs to Ogle County’s best-known landmark. Workers from Brand Safway started erecting the scaffolding around the Black Hawk statue early Monday morning. “Hallelujah!” was Jan Stilson’s simple response. Stilson formerly chaired the Black Hawk Restoration Team, a part of Oregon Together, which was formed almost two years ago to raise funds for the statue’s repairs and work with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois Conservation Foundation to get the feat accomplished. Oregon Together member Roger Cain was equally as enthusiastic. “Fantastic and long overdue!” he said Tuesday. “Let’s pray for good weather.” Devin Hill from Brand Safway said Tuesday that he expected the scaffolding would be in place by Friday, paving the way for Quality Restorations Inc., of Wood Dale, to begin the actual repair work on the surface of the 108-year-old concrete monument. Cain said QRI has allotted six weeks for the work to be completed with an extra week on either side for “miscellaneous.” The statue remains encased in the black plastic QRI workers wrapped around it last fall to protect it from winter weather. “It may be two weeks until we actually see the tarps dropped, hopefully sooner,” Cain said. “They will be working right up against fall weather but they like the cooler temperatures.” QRI was originally expected to begin in June. The cold, wet weather somewhat delayed the start of the work. Steve Ettinger, who heads up the ICF was scheduled to meet with the Black Hawk Art, Restoration & Development Committee, originally called the Black Hawk Restoration Team, on Wednesday to bring them up to date on the project. The Eternal Indian, better known as Black Hawk, was created by sculptor Lorado Taft in 1910 as a tribute to Native Americans, and is situated on a high bluff overlooking the Rock River at Lowden State Park, near Oregon. Time and weather have significantly damaged the surface of the landmark,

Scaffolding was installed midway up the Black Hawk Statue by Tuesday evening. Restoration work was slated to begin later this week. Photo by Earleen Hinton which was unveiled in 1911. Because it stands in a state park, the statue is under the jurisdiction of the IDNR. The statue has spent most of the last five years under layers of protective plastic to keep the ice, snow, and cold from doing more damage. It was unveiled briefly in the summer of 2018 before being wrapped again. Frank and the late Cherron Rausa formed The Friends of the Black Hawk Statue Committee more than a decade ago and began raising money for the project, the total cost of which will approach $1 million. State budget woes, including the lack of a capital bill for several years, side-

tracked a promised $350,000 matching state grant, which was finally funded by the state legislature just over a year ago. A fundraising effort headed up by the Black Hawk Restoration Team was successful in securing the final $225,000 needed for the project last fall, thanks to several large donations from area businesses and individuals. Once the restoration is completed funds will still be needed for landscaping around the statue and for long-term maintenance. Those wishing to donate can do so online at www.ilcf.org or to send checks to Illinois Conservation Foundation, One Natural Resources Way, Springfield, IL 62702.

Forty-five volunteers put on gloves and old shoes last Saturday morning to pick up trash from banks and islands of the Rock River. Mother Nature did her part by providing clear skies and comfortable temperatures for the annual Oregon area Rock River Sweep. Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department Director Steve Rypkema said volunteers on foot and in boats collected three small dump truck loads along the nine-mile stretch from Mud Creek Road to Castle Rock State Park. Once the trash was collected and brought to the staging area at Kiwanis Park by the Oregon dam, volunteers sorted through it to separate out the recyclables. Rypkema said the amount of trash collected was about the same as in previous years and about half of that can be recycled. The event was sponsored by the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department, the Oregon Park District, White Pelican Canoe Rental, Oregon Together, American Rivers, and the Rock River Trail Initiative.

PRESERVATION

Forest preserve doubles size of Bald Hill Prairie Grant made 220-acre purchase possible The Byron Forest Preserve District has recently more than doubled the size of its Bald Hill Prairie Preserve thanks to an $837,600 grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation. The original 160-acre Bald Hill Prairie Preserve, 5502 N. Silver Creek Rd., northeast of Mt. Morris, was acquired in November of 2017 with the support of another $434,000 grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation to protect the rare gravel hill prairie ecosystem. This site has been known as Bald Hill to area residents for more than 150 years, and its unique steep gravel hill is named in the 1872 Ogle County Atlas.   The total size of this site is now 380 acres making it the third largest preserve in the Byron Forest Preserve District.  Of all the other nine Byron Forest Preserve District preserve sites, only the Jarrett Prairie Nature Preserve (641 acres) and Stephen J. and Deirdre Nardi Equine Prairie Preserve (557 acres) are larger.  The new land addition will permanently protect the gravel hill prairie and oak savannas located on the south slope of Bald Hill and provide additional open land to the east of the current preserve.   This hilly open prairie land provides important habitat for a variety of wildlife, most importantly for ground nesting birds.  Rare grassland bird species seen

The Byron Forest Preserve recently purchased the two parcels outlined in yellow to expand the Bald Hill Prairie Preserve outlined in green. on the site include large numbers of bobolinks and Eastern meadowlarks as well as Henslow’s sparrows, short eared owls, and northern harriers. The preserve is also the home of the Big Tree Champion for the State of Illinois, a huge eastern cottonwood that is 28.5 feet in circumference and 122 feet tall. The Byron Forest Preserve District purchased the 224-acre Richard Lenz Farm on Sept. 4 for a sale price of $1,396,000.   The existing Lenz farm house and 4.5 acres of land surrounding it will

be sold at public auction later this fall. With the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation grant and money from the sale of farm house, it is estimated that the total cost to purchase the additional 220 acres will be approximately $1,270 per acre, or a total of $279,000, coming from Byron Forest Preserve District taxpayers.  “We are very thankful that the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation awarded us a second grant to purchase the rest of Bald Hill in order to protect this rare

natural land for future generations,” said Byron Forest Preserve District Executive Director Todd Tucker. “Mr. Lenz was so impressed with the amount of visitors to Bald Hill and the conservation work being done by our Restoration Department that he offered to sell us his adjoining farm property in order to increase the size of the preserve.” Since the Bald Hill Prairie Preserve opened to the public in 2018, it has become the second most visited preserve in the Byron Forest Preserve District. People come to Bald Hill every day to see the Illinois Big Tree Champion and take in the amazing views.  It is a popular spot for area hikers, runners and bird watchers. The new land addition will allow for future expanded public parking areas and trails.   The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation was established in December of 1999 as an independent foundation with a $225 million endowment provided by Commonwealth Edison.  Their mission is to improve energy efficiency, advance the development and use of renewable energy resources, and protect natural areas and wildlife habitat in communities across Illinois. Over the past 16 years, the foundation has provided financial support for clean energy investments in Illinois through a variety of programs.  To date, they have awarded more than 5,000 grants providing $258 million to Illinois nonprofit organizations, schools, municipalities and other local and state government agencies.   The grants support activities in every one of Illinois’ 102 counties.

LOCAL HISTORY

Cow Path led to Pine Hill mansion on Mix Street Editor’s note: Otto Dick, Oregon, has researched the people, places, and events important in the Oregon area’s history for the Ogle County Historical Society. The following is one of a series of the articles he has written.

BY OTTO DICK Driving up Jackson Street toward the Pine Hill Inn location is my next Oregon footprint house. William Stout built his own home at 709 Jackson Street in 1893, living there 61 years.   William was born in Oregon in 1859. William’s granddaughter Dorothy Borgman recalled living in this house. Dorothy showed me a photo of the “Cow Path” (now Jackson Street) heading up the hill to the Pine Hill house built by Judd Mix on Mix Street.   Pine Hill, built in 1874, is a post Civil War mansion now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After the Cow Path, a new road was installed, making it a popular place for the young people to sled down Jackson Street. William’s father Daniel is buried at Riverside Cemetery along with his wife Mary Austin and their infant son, who was buried there in 1858, and 3-year-old daughter Addie, who passed away in 1867.   Mary Austin Stout’s father, Amos and mother Rachael are also interned at the Stout Plot.  To summarize this, William’s parents, his brother and sister, and his in-laws are buried at Riverside. William and his son Leo served in the Illinois National Guard. His father Daniel served in the Civil War.   The Illinois Civil War Detail Report shows his father Daniel joined Company G of the 74th Illinois U.S. Infantry in Rockford on Aug. 11, 1862.   He was 29 years old, had black hair, gray eyes, entering with the rank of private.   As mentioned earlier he is buried in the Riverside Cemetery.   William is one of the 101 men Capt. E. F. Dutcher, an attorney in Oregon, enlisted for Company G stationed at Camp Fuller in Rockford.   Dutcher is also buried at Riverside along with 17 Civil War veterans from this area. Following his father’s footsteps, William served as a city marshall of Oregon for several years.   The first city police station was

William Stout located on the southwest corner of Fourth and Washington Streets. It was located on the courthouse lawn just south of Iron Mike.   This small octagon structure contained the police station at ground level and the community bandstand located above. Previously I wrote in this paper, “At the turn of the century, Oregon’s Saturday night most people gravitated to the evening band concert located in the bandstand. The program usually consisted of the current Sousa marches and a cornet solo or two by Ed Connors. “While the band marched on the upper level of the local police conducted their business on their first floor. Familiar faces in the station were Charlie Eyster, W. C. Stout, George Reiman and Ed Jones.” I also mentioned it would be great if this bandstand could be restored to provide music from the bandstand and provide tourist information from the old police station.  This bandstand would catch the eyes of everyone driving through Oregon. It is disappointing that such a colorful structure as the bandstand had to be torn down.  Now when I drive by the footprint

Stout House, I visualize the Cow Path in front of their house. It also reminds me that the three Stouts served in the Civil War and the Illinois National Guard, and William and his father Daniel served as

Oregon marshalls. When I see the Daniel Stout gravestone at Riverside Cemetery I am reminded of the 17 Civil War vets buried there and that Daniel had black hair and gray eyes.

SERVICE NEWS

Byron native exemplifies legacy of U.S. Navy Seabees BY ALVIN PLEXICO NAVY OFFICE OF COMMUNITY OUTREACH “We Build, We Fight” has been the motto of the U. S. Navy’s Construction Force, known as the “Seabees,” for more than 75 years. Constructionman Amanda Smith, a 2011 Byron High School graduate and native of Byron, builds and fights around the world as a member of naval construction battalion center located in Gulfport, Mississippi. Smith is serving as a Navy equipment operator, who is responsible for driving the construction equipment and delivering the supplies for construction projects in support of Navy operations. Smith credits her success in the Navy to many of the lessons learned growing up in Byron. “You don’t always have to force yourself to fit in,” said Smith. “You can find your own niche. So, be true to yourself.” Building in austere environments can be a challenge. Fighting in harsh conditions can also be a challenge. Building in austere environments while fighting in harsh conditions takes a special kind of person with a great deal of perseverance and determination. These are the kinds of people serving here at Gulfport, the home of the Atlantic Fleet Seabees. These are the people who provide crucial support to Seabee units deployed around the world. The jobs of many of today’s Seabees remained unchanged since World War II, when the Seabees paved the 10,000-mile road to victory for the allies in the Pacific and in Europe, according to Lara Godbille, director of the U. S. Navy Seabee Museum. For more than 75 years Seabees have served in all American conflicts. They have also supported humanitarian efforts using their construction skills to help communities around the world.

Amanda Smith is serving as a Navy equipment operator, who is responsible for driving the construction equipment and delivering the supplies for construction projects in support of Navy operations. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Bradley Gee They aid following earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters. A key element of the Navy the Nation needs is tied to the fact that America is a maritime nation, according to Navy officials, and that the nation’s

prosperity is tied to the ability to operate freely on the world’s oceans. More than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water; 80 percent of the world’s population lives close to a coast; and 90 percent of all global trade by volume travels by sea. “Our priorities center on people, capabilities and processes, and will be achieved by our focus on speed, value, results and partnerships,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “Readiness, lethality and modernization are the requirements driving these priorities.” Though there are many ways for sailors to earn distinction in their command, community and career, Smith is most proud of humanitarian efforts on the Northern Mariana Islands following a typhoon in 2018. “The mission required a lot of determination to excel,” said Smith. “It was rewarding to give back their roadways. We offered them respect so the families could get back into their homes.” Serving in the Navy is a continuing tradition of military service for Smith, who has military ties with family members who have previously served. Smith is honored to carry on that family tradition. “My uncle Tom served in the Army, and my grandfather served in the Army during Vietnam,” said Smith. “My aunt also served in the Air Force.” As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon assets, Smith and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes providing the Navy the nation needs. “Serving in the Navy offers structure, support and security, and gives me the chance to provide safety for my family,” added Smith. “I’m honored to protect my family and the world they live in.”

AIR SHOW?

Is there an interest for an area “warbirds” show? SHAW MEDIA Nine years ago, 26 DC-3s and C-47s flew in to the Whiteside County Airport to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Douglas DC-3. By all accounts, the “The Last Time” was a resounding success. One of the organizers, 1979 Sterling High graduate and now Atlanta pilot and instructor Dan Gryder, is hoping to create another, larger, more diverse aviation show next year. To that end, he will meet with members of the Whiteside County Airport Board on Sept. 14 at the airport, and he is inviting any and all other interested parties – aviation, business, tourism and civic leaders, food and other vendors, and members of the public who would like to see such an event – to attend and

provide input. He’s trying to gauge interest for such an undertaking: The Last Time succeeded “because of the excellent local support,” Gryder said, including a host of volunteers who performed all kinds of tasks. “The entire aviation community knows how well participants were taken care of at that time,” Gryder said in a letter to airport board members. He wants to be clear: He does not want to duplicate “The Last Time.” “Rather, I would invite 4 or 5 warbird-type aircraft from many different categories with a sum total of around 50 varying unique and rare aircraft in total,” he said in the letter. The type of aircraft that would be at the event would include DC-3/ C-47s, B-25s, B-17s, T-28s, T-6s, and F4-Us.

Hairy Cow Brewing Company will be open exclusively to Trivia Night participants with a special menu of food and drink available for purchase. The cost is $10 per person as a team member with maximum of six people on

Airport board members are interested in hearing what Gryder has in mind, airport manager Darin Heffelfinger indicated in an email to SVM. “We hope with your article, and with us reaching to the community leaders, we will have an idea whether or not there is enough community support to hold this type of event,” Heffelfinger wrote. A meeting to discuss interest in a large aviation event at the Whiteside County Airport next year will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Sept. 14 at the airport, 10950 Hoover Road in Rock Falls.

Stillman beats #1 ranked Byron Stillman Valley defeated Byron, who was ranked #1 in Class 3A schools, 18-16 on Sept. 6. A 14-yard touchdown run from quarterback Chad Gerig gave the Cardinals the lead with just over four minutes left in the game. The Cardinals then took a safety when their offense stalled late in the game. The Cardinals’ defense clamped down late stopping a Byron drive to end Byron’s 28-game BNC winning streak. Byron quarterback Ben Carlson injured his ankle early in last week’s 50-3 win over Winnebago, but started and played the entire game. He finished just 2-for-11 passing for 24 yards with an interception, and he rushed for 50 yards on nine carries as well.

• Friday, September 13, 2019

The Genoa-Kingston Cogs burned through the Wing-T playbook in their 45-0 victory over the Oregon Hawks on Sept. 6. “Sitting down with some guys on staff, we just thought that we needed to throw some wrinkles in,” Cogs coach Chad Wilmarth said. “The boys have done a really nice job and really dedicated themselves. We’re really proud of them.” The Cogs (2-0,1-0 in Big Northern Conference) abandoned their traditional run-heavy offense to the tune of three first-half touchdown passes for quarterback Justin Peters.   Already up 13-0, Peters flipped an 8-yard pass to Jake Stojan with 1:12 left in the first for his first score of the game. After Peters set the offense up with a 46-yard punt return, he lofted another touchdown pass to Logan Kribs in the corner of the end zone to put the Cogs up 25-0 with 6:11 left in the half. Peters finished the game a perfect 5 for 5 with 114 yards through the air. Two plays later, Connor Schwichtenberg picked off a Ryker Finch pass and galloped into the end zone to push the Cogs’ lead to 31-0. The Cogs have outscored their two opponents 85-0 in the first two games. Peters finished off the scoring in the first half with a touchdown pass to Chris Kleba from 20 yards out, also running in a 2-pt. conversion to push the halftime lead to 39-0. The Hawks (0-2, 0-2) couldn’t get much of anything going all night. On offense, the Hawks only managed to get three first downs in the game.  The only big play on offense came midway in the third quarter. Finch hit Garret Moser for a 52-yard pass inside the Cogs 20 yard line.  “Second half I thought we played with better effort,” Hawks’ coach Nick Schneiderman said. “We still have to get better at our basics on offense and defense.” The Hawks couldn’t get the ball into the end zone as Bennett Franson picked off Finch three plays later. “We’ve got to keep learning,” Schneiderman said. “They’ve had the biggest transition in the last 15 months. We’ve got a new offense.

CROSS COUNTRY OHS hosted Oregon Open Team scores are not kept at the annual Oregon Open, but teamwork proved to be very important on Sept. 7 at Park West. The Rock Falls girls planned to stick together as usual and bunch up to send themselves to the top of the field Saturday morning. However, their strategy broke down, and instead Big Northern rival Winnebago wound up being the lead pack. Five Winnebago runners finished in

the top seven in a race won by Kaneland’s Rachel Richtman in 18 minutes, 55.4 seconds. Rock Falls senior Bailee Fortney was the other runner in the top seven; she finished fifth in 19:42, but led her closest teammate, 16th-place finisher Alex Gomez, by 57 seconds. West Carroll’s Briar Nevills was a couple of seconds behind Maculan in third place (16:52.2). He felt he could have done better; a side cramp bothered him as he went down the course’s final hill. Rock Falls’ Devon Parker finished fifth

(17:24.7), ahead of Erie-Prophetstown’s Chris Link (17:27.4). Eastland’s Stephen Reifsteck, who beat out Link at the chute in the season opener Aug. 27 at Rock Falls, was 10th (17:34). E-P’s Cameron Abell (17th, 18:06.4) and Amboy’s Brock Loftus (20th, 18:09) also finished in the top 20. Aside from Rock Falls’ top five girls, Amboy’s Margaret Vaessen (24th, 21:23.9) was the only other local girl to finish in the top 30. West Carroll’s Jaydin Sisler (31st, 21:59.3) and Oregon’s Leah Watters

(32nd, 22:07.9) were the only other locals in the top 50 out of 136 runners in the girls race. Boys finishing in the top 50 out of 138 were Oregon’s Andrew Harshman (24th, 18:35.7), Morrison’s Brady Wolf (38th, 19:00.1) and Newman’s Kenny Boesen (45th, 19:18.7), who led their teams; as well as Amboy’s Kyler McNich (26th, 18:33.6) and Ian Eller (27th, 18:34.3), Rock Falls’ Alvaro Hernandez (29th, 18:36.7), E-P’s Tyler Holldorf (45th, 19:13.1) and West Carroll’s Luke Reiland (47th, 19:19.8).


SPORTS COLUMN

COMMENTARY Andy Colbert

much security presence at sporting events. Fans would occasionally get rowdy, with the most outrageous behavior tearing down goal posts. It was good clean fun and everyone behaved. With 170 security personnel scattered throughout the field, gates and stadium, it is a different environment now. “We look at ourselves like the TSA,” Standriff said. “We don’t want fans throwing things, jumping on the field, fighting or having alcohol.” Because of legal issues and the threat of someone becoming uncorked, safety has become such a huge part of everyday existence. As I watched the behinds-the-scenes action at Rice-Eccles, it dawned on me that more preparation goes into that than what the coaches do in making up game plans. “I’ve known for four months the exact date and game time,” said Steve Fyne, a university administrator. “My preparation starts then. First and foremost, is the safety of the patrons. The only thing that matches a football game are the Rolling Stones and U2 concerts we’ve had here.” The stadium was built in 1998 in anticipation of the 2002 Winter Olympics that Salt Lake hosted, with Rice-Eccles serving as site for opening and closing ceremonies. “By far, that was our largest undertaking,” said Fyne in his 39th year at the school. According to Fyne, Utah will have 1,300-1,400 staff, including police, fire and ambulance on hand for the NIU game.

Even with all the concerns for safety, there is an inherent beauty of being at a college football stadium, as evidenced by NIU athletic director Sean Frazier sitting on the sidelines before the game with a view of the Wasatch Mountains as his backdrop. It was Frazier who orchestrated NIU’s second-ever trip to a PAC-12 school. “It was good old-fashioned hog work. It’s hard to do in the modern era,” he said. “Hats off to Utah for accepting the challenge.” A football sideline would not be complete with one of the more common figures and one that universities royally court. That is the alumni donor. That came in the form of Dave Turner, a former resident of Dixon. Turner flew with the team on the charted flight, stayed at the hotel with them and will be watching the game with Frazier in the AD’s private box. After his wife died, Turner started buying tickets to NIU sporting contests and contributing to scholarship endowments. “I’d much rather be here than at a pro game,” Turner said. As his contributions increased, so

too did his perks. That is the nature of college athletics, especially with millions and millions of dollars funneled in by generous alumni. Colleges are no different than high schools. There always seems to be a greater interest in sports than academics. With 21-point favorite Utah winning 35-17, that did not diminish the experience of the small group of Huskie fans that made the trip to Salt Lake, including ‘74 grad Tom Libert of Cary. “I came to the game when I was student and still enjoy it,” he said, while tailgating at an NIU sponsored tent. “I don’t understand why students at Northern don’t come to games that much.” As fans filed out of the stadium and the large semi with the NIU logo proudly affixed to it loaded up all the football gear for the 1,300-mile trip back on I-80 to DeKalb, it reminded me of the Jackson Browne song with the lyrics: “Now the seats are all empty, let the roadies take the stage, pack it up and tear it down.” The spectacle that is college football is over for now, but the show will play again next week.

t is a beautiful sun-kissed day in Salt Lake City, Utah where the NIU Huskies are set to take on the nationally ranked University of Utah football team. It is a step up from trips to MAC schools and a side benefit of being a D-1 athlete. “Coming from tiny Prophetstown, it’s a treat for me to play at places like Ford Field, Florida State, Nebraska and my favorite of all – Kinnick Stadium in Iowa,” said DL Jack Heflin, a huge Iowa fan. “My first plane ride was going to Lincoln for the Nebraska game.” As the buses carrying the team from its downtown hotel roll into Rice-Eccles Stadium, there are representatives on hand to greet every member of the contingent. “It’s our ambassador program,” explains one of friendly greeters, Rex Thornton. “It’s modeled after what they do at Notre Dame. Utah played there a few years ago and from the minute we parked our car, they told us it was an honor to have us. We’ve never been treated so well at a game and my wife said we had to do it at Utah.”  Thus started a tradition in which Utah has close to 100 volunteers greeting players and fans alike, making them feel at home and also setting a tone for sportsmanship. Maybe that is something high school should consider, as the IHSA looks for a ways to encourage a positive attitude at games. It is a different era at sporting events now than decades ago, as fellow 60-year old Scott Standriff and I discussed while watching the Huskies and Utes warm up. Standriff is a supervisor for Centennial Management Group, an outfit contracted by the University to provide security for the game. Scott and I reminisced about growing up in the 1970s and rarely seeing

NO INDIVIDUAL, unless licensed or holding a permit as a childcare facility, may cause to be published any advertisement soliciting a child care service.* A childcare facility that is licensed or operating under a permit issued by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services may publish advertisements of the services for which it is lispecifically censed or issued a permit. Sauk Valley Media strongly urges any parent or guardian to verify the validity of the license of any facility before placing a child in it's care. *Family homes that care for no more than three (3) children under the age of twelve or which receive only children from a single household, for less than 24 hours per day, are exempt from licensure as day care homes. The three children to whom this exemption applies includes the family's natural or adopted children and any other persons under the age of 12 whether related or unrelated to the operator of the day care home.

ASTROGRAPH for FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2019

Spiritual growth will open your heart and mind to a host of new possibilities. A moderate lifestyle change will help you make a difference in your community.

VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22) -- Participate in events that excite you. The people you encounter will encourage you to try something new. Expand your interests and friendships. Romance is in the stars. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23) -- Be secretive about what you are doing. It’s better to finish what you start before you share anything with others. Avoid getting involved in someone else’s drama. Look out for yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Size up situations and take advantage of

an opportunity that presents itself. Recognizing how best to utilize your skills to fit a need will pay off. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- An emotional situation won’t get better if you poke the bear. Find a way to stabilize your current situation instead of confusing things further. Truth and integrity matter. Avoid temptation and indulgence. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Talk to someone you think can shed light on a situation. Money, medical and legal matters are best put in per-

spective and dealt with accordingly. Home and personal improvements are favored. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take care of your responsibilities and move on. Don’t get trapped in someone else’s mess. If you offer suggestions, you’ll be accused of meddling. Don’t let a change someone makes ruin your plans. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Stick to basics and to what’s doable. If you exaggerate or take on too much, you will end up having to depend on others to bail you

out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be careful whom you believe. Someone will try to disrupt an

important relationship. Emotional manipulation should be stopped before it leads to a battle or no-win situation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be afraid of the unknown. The experience you gain will make your life easier. Take a leap of faith, commit wholeheartedly and embrace love. LEO (July 23Aug. 22) -- Don’t feel that you must follow the crowd.
