The high price of propane By Ken Schroeder kschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

SPRINGFIELD — Gov. Pat Quinn has recently announced some emergency actions to help fix the shortened supply and high prices of liquefied propane gas and heating in Illinois. These actions are aimed at making it quicker to transport the fuels from other states into Illinois, yet keep safety at a top level during this process.

Quinn has issued a disaster proclamation that would give licensed Illinois truckers the ability to drive through other states to obtain said fuels and bring them back to the state of Illinois without having to stop and apply for additional licenses. This declaration will also allow drivers to remain behind the wheel longer in order to pick up and deliver the fuels back to the state. It will also increase the num-

ber of drivers that would be able and available to bring propane back into the state of Illinois. Taxes that are usually levied on out-of-state trucks are being temporarily suspended by the Illinois Department of Revenue for trucks that bring in heating fuels to Illinois. The U.S. Department of Transportation has also issued emergency declarations that provided for federal regulatory relief for motor

vehicles delivering LP gas and heating fuels to affected areas. The much colder than normal winter has caused a shortage in LP gas and heating fuels throughout the Midwest. This shortage has caused prices to take a hike that has placed an extreme burden on the consumer in heating costs this winter. Sarah Stockton-Brown of Airgas Co. in LaSalle talked about the current situation.

“Airgas distributes propane primarily for industrial use, such as forklift fuel and cutting applications. In certain parts of the country, Airgas also distributes some propane for residential use, including home heating. Overall, propane represents a relatively small portion of our total gas sales. Airgas purchases its propane from suppliers, some of whom are currently experiencing shortages in various regions of the country,

including the Midwest. We are actively working with our suppliers to manage through any regional shortages and meet our customers’ needs,” StocktonBrown said. According to a Jan. 28 article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the United States has larger supplies of propane, but it is in the wrong place. The Midwest has been shorted due to a wet drying season this past fall.

2014 deer permits may decrease By Donna Barker Shaw Media Service

HENNEPIN — Putnam County deer hunters, as well as those in 40 other Illinois counties, could see a decrease in the number of deer hunting permits granted for the 2014-15 year by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). IDNR Director Marc Miller said the possible decrease in the number of granted deer permits would reflect a revision of deer population objectives for the state. The revision follows a two-year review of Illinois deer management efforts, taking into account such factors as automobile/car crashes and hunting statistics, he said. “The IDNR manages deer by county and state population goals, and as a result of our two-year review, we’re making changes for many counties. In these counties our strategy is shifting from deer herd reduction to maintaining or increasing deer populations,” Miller said. Natural resource biologists have determined deer population goals can now be increased in those affected counties, while still keeping the overall numbers at levels which will reduce conflicts between deer

Peggy Smith of Magnolia has a collection of more than 200 tins, some that were given to her and others she’s acquired throughout the years. Smith said she’s never spent more than $5 for a single tin.

Collect-tin started at an early age Peggy Smith has collected more than 200 tins By Ken Schroeder kschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

MAGNOLIA — A trip to an auction for a young kid led to a lifelong hobby for Peggy Smith of Magnolia. “I was probably 13 or 14 when I went to went to my first auction, and I got my Premium crackers tin,” Smith said. “That’s the one that stands out because it was my grandma’s. I got it at her estate sale.”

From there, the collection has blossomed into more than 200 tins of various sizes and brands. The tins range from the large pretzel and popcorn containers to the old Velvet tobacco tins — with all sorts of shapes and sizes in between. Tins first came into use as containers for perishable goods during the 14th century, and some products are still packed in tins today. Because of the nearly continuous usage, the

price for collectible tins has never been very high. For instance, a 100-year-old Prince Albert tobacco tin sells for about $10 on eBay. “I have never spent more than $5 for a single tin. A lot of them were given to me as gifts. ‘Oh, Peggy likes tins; let’s send her one.’ But most I got from auctions and sales,” Smith said. “They all have a story though. There’s a couple that were my grandma’s or great-grandma’s. “My dad would get them for me. He’d go to auctions and buy

a box of junk just because it had a tin for me,” Smith said. Many collections start for a reason, but Smith isn’t quite sure where hers originated from. “I don’t know why I did it,” she said. “I just started at an auction, and I would pick them up. When my brothers would see them, they’d get some for me.” Smith hopes to pass the collection on to her children, although she’s not sure they’ll stay in the family. “They’ll probably end up in a garage sale someday,” she said.

GRANVILLE — The music and dancing will be plenty in the musical “Footloose” which will run April 3-5 at Putnam County High School. “Footloose” is the story of a southern town which has a ban on dancing and music after a tragic accident with high school-age students. The local minister, the Rev. Shaw (Nathan Ward) has persuaded the town council to pass laws that include a ban on all unsupervised dancing and music within the city limits, including a curfew. A young man named Ren (Harold Fay) moves to the southern town after the tragic death of his mother from leukemia to live with his aunt and uncle. He makes friends with Willard (Justin Galetti) and learns of the ban. He also meets the minister’s rebellious

Harold Fay (left) as Ren and Becky Arnold as Wendy Jo sing during a number in PCHS’s spring musical “Footloose.” Megan Hewitt (back row, from left), Kazia Holmstrom, Cassie Copeland, Rachel Maggio, Kaylynn Donelson and Sabrina Smith sing as well in the number.

daughter, Ariel (Brooke Veronda), and they want to date. However Ariel is dating an abusive local dirt track driver, Chuck (Jesse Goetsch), who doesn’t want to break up with her. Conflict is stirred up in the town when the minister has confrontations with his daughter. Ren has the local kids

dancing in secret, and the town council puts down an effort by the kids to overturn the laws so they can have their first senior prom. Ren and Chuck have words about Ariel, and a plan is hatched to have the prom outside of the city limits. More tensions erupt. How it ends up is for the audience to see

How ‘well’ are you?

Propane

From Page 1 However, southern states like Texas have not had that problem. The United States is also continuing their program of exporting propane to other countries. More than 70 members of the U.S. House of Representatives has drafted a letter asking President Barack Obama to take immediate action to ensure states in need of propane receive relief as soon as possible. Natural gas, another heating fuel that people in Illinois use, has also been on the rise. In late January when the weather had seemed to ease, the natural gas prices fell sharply. Natural gas futures plunged .32 cents, or 7 percent according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch article. This drop had come since natural gas prices had achieved their highest level since September of 2011. According to the U. S. Energy Information group, weekly Illinois propane wholesale/resale price is at $4.50 per gallon as of Jan. 31.

Ballot colors announced HENNEPIN — The Putnam County Clerk’s Office has announced the color of the primary ballots at the primary election on March 18. The Democratic Party ballot will be green; the Republican Party ballot will be yellow; and the non-partisan ballot will be white.

National Ground Water Awareness Week March 9-15 HENRY — The Marshall County Health Department, the Marshall-Putnam County Farm Bureau and the National Ground Water Awareness Association remind residents it’s time to check water wells in support of National Ground Water Awareness Week March 9-15. “Just as you check your furnace or smoke detector batteries seasonally, spring is a good

season to have an annual water well checkup before the peak water use season begins,” said Wil Hayes, director of Environmental Health at the Marshall County Health Department. Wells provide drinking water, and about half the United States receives its drinking water from wells. An annual checkup is the best way to ensure problem-free service and quality water. Preventive maintenance

can also be less costly than emergency maintenance, as well as prolonging the life of your well. Hayes further recommends you test your water whenever there is a change in taste, odor, appearance or when the system is serviced. Hayes also recommends that well owners: • Keep hazardous chemicals, such as paint, fertilizer, pesticides and motor oil far away from wells. • Maintain proper separation between your well and buildings, septic systems, and live-

and people, such as automobile/deer accidents and farm crop damages, Miller said. The biologists have given several factors which have contributed to the deer population decline, including adverse weather conditions, herd reduction efforts, and in some locations, deer mortality due to outbreaks of epizootic hemorrhagic disease, or EHD, Miller said. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department reports the number of car/ deer accidents in 2013 is about the same as 2011. Percentages of car/deer accidents out of all auto accidents has remained about the same for the past three years at nearly 50 percent. However, Putnam County saw a 31 percent decrease in the number of firearm-killed deer during the 2013 firearm hunting season, a decrease from 520 harvested to 361. Statewide, the IDNR reported hunters in Illinois harvested a preliminary total of 74,191 deer during the 2013-14 firearm seasons, compared with 99,546 deer harvested in 201213. Ken Schroeder of the Putnam County Record contributed to this story.

Mack announces candidacy for circuit judge HENNEPIN — Putnam County State’s Attorney James A. Mack has announced his intention to fill the seat of retiring Judge Scott A. Shore as Putnam County Resident Circuit Judge in the upcoming election. Mack is currently serving his third term as Putnam County State’s Attorney. Mack started his legal career as an associate in the general practice law firm of Boyle, Goldsmith and Bolin, where he practiced in the areas of insurance defense, probate and family law, a position he held until 2000 when he was first elected state’s attorney. He was also the assistant public defender for Putnam County while working at the Boyle firm. He worked as an associate at the law firm of Schweickert & Ganassin from 2004-08 practicing in the areas of municipal and personnel injury law. Mack graduated from Northern Illinois University College of Law in 1995 where he served as president of the Student Bar Association and co-editor of the law school newspaper. “From private practice and representing the accused to being a prosecutor and representing the county, my wide range of legal experience fits well with the varied and important decisions a judge must make,” Mack said. “Through both private practice and public service, I have learned that a fair, compassionate and even-tempered pursuit of justice is the best course, even in contentious environments.” Mack, 48, makes a habit of community service, being active in several

civic and religious organizations. Mack is an active member of and has served as president and A. vice president James Mack of the Granville Rotary, now known as Putnam County Rotary; the Hennepin Business and Betterment Association, two terms each; and as Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus. Service to Mack also means serving on the boards of community organizations like Putnam County Achievement Services at the Putnam County Community Center and Community Partners Against Substance Abuse (CPASA). He is the secretary of the Putnam County Bar Association, member of the Illinois Bar Association and the Illinois State’s Attorney Association. Mack is also on the board or a member of several other civic, benevolent and professional organizations. “I have always enjoyed serving Putnam County by using the law to seek justice. In this respect, being state’s attorney is a very fulfilling job. If allowed to serve as resident circuit judge, I will continue to serve the people of Putnam County by seeking justice through law, albeit in a different capacity. I would be humbled and honored to use my experience and skills to serve the people of Putnam County as their Resident Circuit Judge.” Mack is a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and lives in Hennepin with his wife, Beth, and their children, Roman and Veronika.

Birds of feather ... My grandmother loved animals — a trait she passed on to many of her offspring and their offspring and their offspring. A dog, a cat, a lamb, a colt ... it didn’t matter. Grandma was the matriarch of animals on the farm. My grandfather, the farmer, also loved animals but in a different way. All animals — by his standards — were livestock. He respected them; he fed them; he understood them. But when it came to allowing animals inside our home, he wouldn’t budge. After all, livestock was Terri meant to live outside. Simon How my grandmother ever talked by grandfather into her bird cage filled with either a canary or a parakeet still puzzles me. On the other hand, I’m sure she never asked him if it was OK, and I’m equally sure he never commented on the cage that often held a bird inside our home. Instead, the cage would just come out of the cellar one day, and just as quickly, a new bird would appear inside it. It was as simple as that. Grandma’s birds were traditionally named — names like Tweety, Peanuts and Birdy were the norm. I’m not sure how many she had in that old, drafty farmhouse, but I have to tell you, there were quite a few. Every time a new bird would appear, there would initially be a current of excitement in the house among us all (well, except Grandpa), but the newness would wear off quickly. I’ll tell you why ... You see, canaries and parakeets are singers; they chirp away and sing their songs like nobody’s business, which is exactly why Grandma loved them and exactly why Grandpa did not. But for our family, the chirping and singing was always followed by my grandmother chirping and singing too. That’s right ... she would hear Little Peanuts sing, and she would either whistle a tune back to the bird or chirp away in conversation with each of her feathered friends. Once or twice was fun ... but consistently throughout the day got old really quickly, even for our youthful ears. But that was just the beginning. You see, Grandma was troubled by the fact that Little Peanuts and Little Tweety had small confines in their bird cage, so every once in a while — when Grandpa was in the field or down with the hogs for a considerable amount of time — Grandma would open the door to the cage and allow the bird to escape. What transpired after that would be utter chaos. With the doors locked and Grandma’s grandchildren as wide-eyed as we’d ever been, those birds would soar through the house. Grandma would be chirping and whistling and singing for all she was worth, as her pet birds traversed the rooms of the farmhouse. It’s been said the caged bird sings begging for its freedom, and that must be so, since the bird silently soared from curtain rod to Grandpa’s recliner to bedposts and beyond. Grandma and the freed bird were in their glory, and we cowered under the dining room table, fearful of the dives and swoops her feathered friends were making — not to mention that Grandpa could reappear at any time. For the life of me, I have no idea how Grandma was able to entice her birds back into their cage, but they always went willingly. Grandma would snap the door closed, and before we knew it, their lyrical duet would continue. I hadn’t thought about those crazy birds in a long time, but the other day I was thinking about my grandmother’s small world on the farm — when she was clearly a big city girl, and I came to the conclusion her act of freeing those caged feathered friends might have been indicative of what she wanted to do as well — spread her wings a bit and fly. After all, she found such joy in their songless flight. And now that I think about it, perhaps her “conversations” were far more than chirping and whistling. Just maybe those birds and Grandma understood each other all along. Putnam County Record Editor Terri Simon can be reached at tsimon@putnamcountyrecord.com.

On the street

Michael Sam, who is a strong candidate for the NFL from the University of Missouri, has come out as a gay American. Will this hurt his chances of being drafted in the NFL? “It should not affect his chances of getting drafted in the NFL. If you are talented and have a chance to go and make money and have a future, why not do it?” Damian Wachowiak, Granville

“Not at all. I don’t think a person’s sexuality should be a factor in anything.” Bobbi Walker, Mark

“Absolutely no. I just don’t think that is a factor. If he is good, he is good.” Lynn Gruenwald, Granville

Taxing your tummy for your own good I’m dragging a dead horse back out again – one I flogged within the last month or so – because the legislation of your life is apparently not leaving anytime soon. Meet Mattie Hunter, a Democratic State Senator from Chicago (of course). Hunter wants to save you from being fat, by targeting what she sees as the great “ruin-er” of waistlines throughout the state. Does Hunter want to restrict your access to Krispy Kremes, or Twinkies or potato chips? No, her target is more insidious with a method that only a politician could love. Ms. Hunter, seeing sodas and energy drinks as the antithesis of health, has proposed a tax on carbonated sugary beverages. And since nothing succeeds like excess, she’s going for the jugular with a 1 cent tax per ounce. Yes, per ounce. That means that 89 cents for the two liter bottle of Great Value cola you bought at Walmart last week will run another 68 cents if Mad Mattie has her way. In a way, you can’t blame Hunter; she’s lost five immediate fam-

Ken Schroeder COMMENTARY ily members to health problems brought on by unhealthy diets. In her mind, what she’s doing is right for the state, its people and the business climate of Illinois. Not all that long ago, I was addicted to soda. A six pack of Dr. Pepper in a day was not unusual and a hot day of outdoor recreation meant a 12 pack or more. I’ll admit, when I stopped drinking soda, my weight dropped 40 pounds almost overnight. But that was my choice. You can’t legislate people’s beverage choices; it doesn’t work. The same measure was tried in health-conscious California and trendy New York where it failed miserably. Prohibition stands as the greatest testament to the people’s desire to have something and consequences be darned.

Good for the job atmosphere, she said? Only if you live in Davenport or St. Louis where more than a few people are going to drive and stock up on 24 packs of Coca-Cola rather than pay a $3 tax per case. It was only 25 years ago people would drive across the country to buy Coors beer in Colorado because it was illegal in much of the country. What were we thinking? Hunter’s figures indicate an extra $600 million will pour into state coffers, where half of the proceeds from her Healthy Eating, Active Living Act would go toward funding Medicaid, and of course, healthy lifestyle education. “We understand this is a challenge,” Hunter said. “But even if it takes three years, five years, we’re going to hang in there.” Meanwhile, at Wrigley Field, my beer is going to cost less than my neighbor’s cola. I wonder if Mattie’s related to Anheuser-Busch? Ken Schroeder can be reached at kschroeder@putnamcountyrecord. com.

TO Letter THE Editor

Stop trade agreements To the Editor, Are you aware of the TPP? That stands for Trans-Pacific Partnership. This is a new trade agreement President Obama has asked Congress to fast track. It would mean our legislators would have no way of reviewing, amending or even voting on the agreement. The TPP is a massive trade agreement with 11 Asian and Latin American countries. It is an agreement that was secretly written by corporations behind closed doors. The little bits that have been leaked have prompted some political commentators, like Ed Schultz of MSNBC, to call it “NAFTA on steroids.” NAFTA, or the North American Free Trade Agreement, took effect Jan. 1, 1994. There were great promises made it would create hundreds of thousands of American jobs, the U.S. farmers

would become wealthy from their exports, it even stated that Mexico’s standard of living would rise, plus much more. Well, 20 years later promises made were never fulfilled. In a new Public Citizen report, “NAFTA at 20: One Million Jobs Lost, Mass Displacement and Instability in Mexico, Record Income Inequality, Scores of Corporate Attacks on Environmental and Health Laws,” it shows many results to be the opposite of what was promised. Public Citizen has found the United States ended up with a mind-blowing $181 billion trade deficit with Mexico and Canada, our NAFTA partners. The United States lost a net 1 million jobs because of NAFTA, immigration from Mexico doubled and more than half of the Mexican population still falls below the poverty line. Poverty in the United States is an ever-present problem as well.

It also created larger United States agricultural trade deficits with Mexico and Canada. Corporations such as GE, Chrysler and Caterpillar promised to create specific numbers of American jobs if NAFTA was approved. Government data shows they lied. Instead they fired American workers and moved manufacturing to Mexico. And why? Because Mexico provided lower wages and weaker environmental standards. Since NAFTA, U.S. trade deficit growth with Canada and Mexico has been 45 percent higher than with countries not engaged in a U.S. Free Trade Agreement. It defies common sense to think our President, who must know the illeffects NAFTA has had on our country, would be so enthusiastic about the TPP. It seems it would be even more destructive than NAFTA. According to Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global

Trade Watch, “NAFTA’s actual outcomes prove how damaging this type of agreement is for most people. It highlights the need for it to be renegotiated and shows why we cannot have any more such deals that include job-offshoring incentives, requirements that we import food that doesn’t meet our safety standards or new rights of firms to get taxpayer compensation before foreign tribunals over laws they don’t like.” The only winners, if the TPP is approved, are the corporations, foreign and domestic. It certainly won’t be citizens of the United States. As a concerned citizen I have written to the president, my senators and my representative. If you are tired of big business having way too much influence in our government I hope you will do the same. Judy Haggenjos Hennepin

Latin dancing — water-style! By Ken Schroeder kschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

HENNEPIN — The Hennepin Park District has been offering a new fitness class called Aqua Zumba. If water aerobics always seems too boring, this may be exactly what you’re looking for. “If you’ve ever taken a Zumba class on land – which is Latin dancing – for exercise, it’s the same principle modified a little bit because you can’t move in the water the way you can on land,” Hennepin Park Pool manager Sandy Hrasch said. “It’s a fun way to exercise.” The classes are a half hour on two nights a week, with the class lasting four weeks. The course costs $20. “We did a little feeler out to see if there was any interest, and it was something people would be interested in,” Hrasch said. “We’re always trying new programs and see how they go. We saw there was an interest there, so we decided to

give it a whirl and see what we get.” Kim Eccles is the instructor for the class and also teaches at other locations throughout the Illinois Valley, and Hrasch said she brings much enthusiasm to it. “She seems to really enjoy what she’s doing, and she’s making it fun for the people who are in the class,” Hrasch said. “She instructs from out of water, so they can see what she does, and our staff has said, ‘What a workout she’s getting.’ So the people in the water must be doing something too. “Any exercise you can do in the water is always beneficial. It’s much easier on joints,” Hrasch said. “People that maybe can’t walk out on pavement, this is something they would be able to do without hurting themselves.” Hennepin Park Pool is currently closed during renovation, but classes will resume once the pool re-opens in March.

Starved Rock Lodge voted best in Midwest for a meeting UTICA — Starved Rock Lodge, located in Starved Rock State Park, was voted the best lodge in the Midwest for a meeting. The social media-based contest began on Facebook a few weeks ago and was created by Midwest Meetings.com. “We decided to launch the contest because we know there are some great cities and facilities throughout the Midwest, and we wanted a way to recognize them,” said Christianne Beringer, communications coordinator for Midwest Meetings. “We didn’t want to choose the contestants; we wanted nominations to come in from people that had first-hand knowledge of working with the cities/ facilities.” Originally, 19 lodges were nominated from throughout the Midwest. Starved Rock Lodge made it to the final four along with Quail Hollow Resort (Concord, Ohio), Wilderness Resort (Wisconsin Dells, Wis.) and Landmark Resort (Egg Harbor, Wis.). Starved Rock Lodge hosts more than 350 meetings per year ranging from small groups of less than 10 attendees to up to 200 corporate clients. In addi-

tion to the Starved Rock Room, the lodge has four smaller meeting rooms, team-building activities (such as scavenger hunts), guided hikes to see seasonal waterfalls and canyons, cocktail parties, awards banquets and annual dinners. Two years ago, the Lodge added outdoor educational programming at Fox Ridge

(located across from the main entrance). Benchstyle seating for 150 is nestled under the pines, and lectures range from falconry to “What’s the BUZZ about bees.” Jenny Roulston, the lodge’s sales manager, said, “Customer service is our top priority, but our unique venue offers corporate clients a wonderful combina-

tion of woods, water, history and chance to get out of the office and into the woods.” Starved Rock Lodge will receive a trophy and a fourpage spread in an upcoming issue of Midwest Meetings magazine.

Sports PC’s Chris Walker receives honor By Dixie Schroeder dschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

GRANVILLE — Putnam County High School head softball coach Chris Walker has received yet another honor in his coaching career. Walker has been named Sectional Coach of the Year by the Illinois Coaches Association at the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Class 1A level. The award is based off the previous year’s high school season. Each sectional has a coach who wins the award. The award isn’t necessarily based on team record, but how a coach gets the most out of his team. Each class has eight coaches of which one is chosen for the award this year. The Illinois Coaches Association hosts a banquet in Bloomington for the winners from each class in the IHSA system. “This year my wife, parents and one of my sisters will be able to come to Bloomington,” Walker said. Walker gives kudos to his good friend and now retired coach, Greg Easter. Easter, who formerly coached at Illinois Valley-Chillicothe High School, was instrumental in getting and keeping the Illinois Coaches Association going and works on recognizing coaches who do well with their programs. Easter said, “The ICA is proud to recognize Chris’s contributions to softball as a coach. All of his time, dedication and hard work for girl’s softball in Illinois is greatly appreciated.” This is the third time that Walker has won the Sectional Coach of the Year honors. He has also earned the Head Coach Super 60 award and the Illinois Coach of the Year award twice. His Lady Panthers have won the IHSA Class 1A Sectional in 2012 and were in the Elite 8 of IHSA Class 1A competition in 2013. Walker has also had a lot of success at the elementary level. His Lady Pumas have been in the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Class 1A Elite 8, four times and in 2009 were the IESA Class 1A State Champions. Walker runs Coaches Clinics in the summer as well as coaching in a one-on-one basis during the year. He coaches not only his regular players, but anyone who wants help in getting better in his one-on-one sessions. Other area coaches have a lot of respect for him. Lori Stenstrom of Henry-Senachwine High School is one of them. “I have known Chris Walker for quite a few years. After getting to know him, I have found him to be a kind-hearted, caring person. He is extremely knowledgeable about the game of softball and gives his players the necessary tools to be successful,” Stenstrom said. “His teams are always well-prepared to compete. He is very passionate about softball and is very dedicated to the sport and his athletes. It is always a challenge playing a Putnam County team because they will bring everything to the diamond. We have become good friends over the years, and I look forward to playing Putnam County. I was honored several years ago when he asked me to help at the Putnam County Junior High School softball camp. I knew he would have some tips that I could take back to my own team. The honor of Sectional Coach of the Year could not go to a more well-deserving man.”

Panthers beat Mallards to win regional By Ken Schroeder kschroeder@putnamcountyrecord.com

MARSEILLES — Top-seeded Putnam County rallied in the third quarter to end Henry-Senachwine’s dreams of glory, defeating the Mallards 54-40 in the 1A Marquette Regional Championship Feb. 28. It was the third meeting between the two teams this year with each school winning one game before this duel, and both teams were looking forward to the third decisive game. Putnam County came out cold against the Mallards, falling to an 8-2 deficit before getting into its groove. The Panthers would come back to tie the game going into the second quarter at 10-10, then fall behind again to a 20-18 halftime score. That was the end of Henry-Senachwine’s dominance, as PC came out swinging in the second half. Keeping their reputation as a second-half powerhouse, Putnam County took their game up a notch for the third quarter. Led by an offensive explosion from Evan Kreiser that saw the senior score nine straight points, the Panthers tallied 17 points in the third period while holding Henry-Senachwine to four, creating a rift the Mallards couldn’t close. “We were working as a team. Evan Kreiser had a great third quarter and really brought us up, and we brought our defense up,” senior Sam Garland said. “It’s

exciting because we got this far last year, and we’re going all the way this year.” “We’re going to come out firing no matter what the score is. It just felt good to come out here and win,” senior Harold Fay said. Both teams shot cold with a 40 percent average from the court. The Panthers made the most of their trips to the free throw line, scoring 12 of their 15 opportunities with the Mallards putting in seven of their 13 attempts. Turnovers plagued both teams in the first half. Fay led all scorers with 21 points, 10 coming from the foul line. Kreiser followed with 12, and Austin Biagini pumped in seven points. Brian Condit led the Mallards with 10 points. Defense told the tale for the Panthers, where they led in all categories. Sophomore Alec Veverka was responsible for 11 of PC’s 31 rebounds and swatted two of the three blocked shots away. Biagini stole the ball five times out of the team’s 15 total swipes. “We calmed down a little bit in the second half and started hitting more of the shots. That opened the doorway,” coach Josh Nauman said. “I thought we did a great job down the stretch and just played how we wanted to play.” The Panthers will travel to Colfax-Ridgeview for sectionals on March 5 to face off against RoanokeBenson, another team Putnam County is 1-1 with for the season.

Reddick Mansion will host event March 22 OTTAWA — The Reddick Mansion Association, along with the Book Mouse, will present the first in a series of “Readings by the Author,” Massacre 1769: The Search for the Origin of the Legend of Starved Rock by Mark Walczynski at 7 p.m. March 22. Were the Illinois Indians destroyed by their enemies, the Potawatomi and Ottawa Indians, at Starved Rock or is this legend just fanciful fiction? Walczynski examines the earliest, most popular and most influential accounts of the incident and compare these accounts to period documents and archaeological investigations to determine whether the massacre was an actual historic event. Walczynski is retired from the Illinois Depart-

ment of Natural Resources Office of Law Enforcement and is an adjunct educator at Illinois Valley Community College, teaching history, criminal justice and philosophy. He is also the park historian for the Starved Rock Educational and Historical Foundation. After the presentation, the author will sign his books. This event is free and the public is invited. Refreshments will be served and any donations will be gratefully accepted. All money raised will be used for the preservation and renovation of the Reddick Mansion. The Reddick Mansion, at 100 W. Lafayette Street in Ottawa, was built in 1858 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
