Morrison Tech receives anonymous gift of $25,000 Prairie Advocate staff
MORRISON – Morrison Institute of Technology has received $25,000 from an anonymous donor to help fund a program that exposes high school students to engineering and manufacturing. During the past several years, Morrison Tech has implemented programs designed to create student excitement for the subjects taught at its Morrison campus. Seventh-graders from area schools participate in hands-on activities during Morrison Tech’s Engineering Technology Days. Topics during this event have included principles of building design, design process/prototyping, manufacturing, construction materials and engineering lab bridge design. “The positive reaction of both educators and students to the Engineering Technology Days indicated that it was time to introduce another strategy to expose
students to engineering technology,” Morrison Tech President Chris Scott said. The second phase of the college’s plan involves exposing high school students to engineering technology. During the 2016 fall semester, eight students from local high schools – Morrison, Prophetstown, Erie and River Bend (Fulton) – enrolled in “Principles of Engineering: Concepts and Projects,” a dual credit course at Morrison Tech. They will receive high school credit plus three college credits for the class that meets for an hour on weekday mornings. A second course, “Parametric Modeling,” will be offered during the 2017 spring semester. The donation will help fund the estimated $53,000.00 worth of equipment and materials used in the high school courses, including 3D printers, wind tunnels, CNC mills and a router and computer tablets.

ANNUAL FALL PLANNING & PREPAREDNESS GUIDE
Plan your fall foliage trip (Metro) – Come autumn, thousands of motorists take to the highways and backroads to experience the everchanging landscape made beautiful by leaves changing colors. Fall foliage road trips make for a fun way to spend a weekend afternoon. With cameras in hand and provisions at the ready, motorists can make the most of their next fall foliage road trip. • Know when to go. Learn the best times of the year to see the peak
leaf colors. Mountainous regions and many located in northern latitudes will see changes in leaf color earlier than other regions. Drivers living in certain areas of Canada, regions of the Rocky Mountains or in particular parts of New England can expect to witness leaves changing color as early as September, while much of the midwest can expect peak color in midto late-October. FOLIAGE CONTINUED ON A13
Autumn is a great time to embark on road trips and take in the awesome spectacle of fall foliage.

Growmark announces 2017 essay contest theme The theme for the 2017 GROWMARK Essay Contest is: “What value do cooperatives provide to today’s farmers?” The contest is open to all high school FFA members in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin. This is the 24th year for the program, sponsored by the GROWMARK System and FS member cooperatives, in conjunction with state FFA leaders, to help young people develop their writing skills, learn about current issues affecting agriculture, and understand the unique role of cooperatives. Students will explore ways in which cooperatives help farmers remain competitive, and describe the value

Southern regions may not see leaves change color until November. • Aim for a weekday. Many people plan fall foliage road trips on the weekend. These “leafers” or “peepers,” as they’re sometimes referred to, flood normally empty rural areas and can easily cause traffic jams. Schedule your own trip for a weekday so you can avoid most of the crowds and enjoy a more serene environment
cooperatives provide to modern farms. Essays will be submitted online for the submissions is midnight Oct. 31, 2016. Additional program details have been sent to agriculture teachers and are available on the Essay Contest page on growmark.com. Each state’s winner earns a $500 award and the winner’s FFA chapter receives a $300 award. Four runners-up per state each win $125. The program is offered annually, and many agriculture teachers use it as part of their class curriculum. Past topics have included sustainability, careers in agriculture, and the cooperative principles.
for hiking excursions or countryside visits. • Book accommodations early. If you plant to stay overnight, book your trip as early as possible and don’t be surprised if costs are high. Autumn is not only a peak time for leaf color changes, but also it’s a prime time for vacationers interested in comfortable temperatures and amazing scenery, so autumn lodging rates may be equal to or exceed the rates charged during the height of summer vacation season. • Employ a few tricks of the photography trade. Fall foliage may be at its
most vibrant at sunrise and sunset when the sun is low in the sky and will not cast much glare. Slightly overcast days also may help leaves’ colors pop, but too much cloud cover may cause a lack of vibrancy in leaf color. • Watch the weather. Autumn weather can be unpredicable. Some days it may be crisp, while other days it will be hot. Sometimes you may experience hot and cold weather on the same day. Dress in layers so that you can be comfortable and shed or add layers as necessary.

Three pre-winter lawn care pointers (Metro) – Winter weather can be harsh, especially on lawns. Homeowners who spend much of spring and summer tending to their lawns may fear the impact that winter will have on their once-lush landscapes, making the fall a great time to fortify lawns against any harsh conditions to come. Homeowners must take grass type into consideration before taking steps to prepare their lawns for the winter. Some grasses are best fertilized in late-summer, while others should be fertilized in autumn. Coolseason grasses, including fescue and bluegrass, are best fertilized sometime between the months of September and November. Warm-season grasses, such as Bermuda or zoysia, should be fertilized between July and September.

• Gutters and downspouts should be in good condition. A roof is the sum of its parts, and that includes downspouts and gutters. If the gutters are clogged or damaged, they cannot direct water away from the house properly. Snow, leaves and other
debris needs to be cleared from gutters to help them function at optimal capacity. • Animals and insects can cause damage, too. It’s not just poor weather that homeowners need to consider with regard to roof damage. Boring insects and animals may cause problems with roofs as well. A roof inspection may shed light on potential pest problems.
Holes or nesting materials may indicate that an animal or animals are using the attic as a shelter from the elements. Get to the root of issues with your home’s roof before they become bigger problems once winter arrives. A thorough inspection can reveal problems that may prove costly if ignored.
Once homeowners have gained a greater understanding of their lawns, they can begin exploring the various ways to prepare their lawns for whatever winter has in store. 1. Explore winterizing fertilizers. Homeowners who want to make their grasses more winter hardy can consult landscaping professionals to determine if winterizing fertilizers will work for their lawns. These specially formulated fertilizers, many of which are made exclusively for cool-season grasses, contain higher levels of potassium and lower levels
of nitrogen than early-season fertilizers. Potassium helps strengthen and harden plants, and cool-season grasses may need extra potassium as winter settles in. Homeowners who are not sure if they should apply winterizing fertilizer can conduct soil tests to determine the potassium levels in their soil. If the test indicates the then applying a winterizing fertilizer is likely unnecessary. In addition, homeowners who have fed their lawn a balance of nutrients throughout spring and summer likely will not need to apply winterizing fertilizer. 2. Get rid of fallen leaves.
While fallen leaves may be integral components of idyllic autumn landscapes, leaves left on the lawn throughout the winter may lead to disease in the grass. Leaves trap moisture and block sunlight and air from reaching grass, and that can encourage the development of disease. In addition, leaves can harbor insects that also may contribute to disease. While it might seem like common sense to delay leaf removal until the end of autumn when all the leaves have fallen, that, too, can prove harmful to lawns. LAWN CARE CONTINUED ON A18

Leaves left laying on lawns for long periods of time can contribute to the same types of damage as leaves left on the lawn throughout winter, so do your best to remove leaves as they fall. mold. Homeowners who live in regions where snow falls into spring or where spring tends to be cold and damp may want to take steps to prevent snow mold. Gray snow mold typically looks fuzzy and gray, and lawns infested with snow mold may develop
unsightly gray or brown spots indicative of dead grass. Pink snow mold may be even worse than gray snow mold because pink mold attacks the roots as well as the leaves. To prevent snow mold, continue mowing into the fall, even as lawns grow dormant, clearing the lawn of grass clippings and leaves after each mow. Thick lawns may provide a breeding ground for snow mold, so homeowners whose lawns have a history of developing snow mold may lawns into the fall. Winter is rarely easy on lawns, but homeowners can take several steps to prepare their lawns for potentially harsh winter weather.

doing OK, and she always just smiles
BY AMY WILTSHIRE CCP Program Supervisor Lifescape Community Services
Dear Amy: I am very worried about a family that goes to my church. The mother is in her upper 80s and she is caring for her son who looks to be in his 40s and is disabled. She is becoming increasingly frail, and I have noticed that both she and her son show up at church looking disheveled and dirty. This is unusual, as they have both always been clean and well-groomed. Her adult daughter has moved in to help care for her brother, but ever since she has moved in, I see a decline in the mother and son’s appearance and they always seem to be out of money. I have asked her if she is
out there ? Dear Worried: There could be a number of things going on in this home. Through the Community Care Program, Lifescape Community Services can determine the mother’s eligibility and help her obtain services such as in-home workers, emergency home response services, and referrals for additional community-based assistance to meet her individual needs. Lifescape operates the Adult Protective Services program in Whiteside, Carroll, Ogle, and Lee
counties. Adult Protective Services can investigate on behalf of the son with a disability to ensure he is not being abused or neglected. Lifescape can provide a referral to get him additional help if needed. Please call Lifescape at 815-4901125 and ask to speak to someone in the Adult Protective Services program and then the Community Care Program. All reports and referrals to the Adult Protective Callers may remain anonymous if they wish. Lifescape’s goal is to help the family and to protect seniors and those with a disability. Thank you for your concern. Amy

Letters and Commentary Trump doesn’t deserve trust BY GERALD L. BORK Mount Carroll
As I ride or drive around the surrounding towns, cities and states, I see some Trump signs. I cannot help but wonder what these people are thinking of. Are there women and children living there? I have been in many locker rooms starting in high school,
continuing in the armed forces, colleges and various factories. I was fortunate and never encountered anyone like Donald Trump. I would not have trusted him with any of my girls, relatives or friends; what husband or father would? I cannot believe any religious person would want to be associated with Donald Trump, or his name. This is my opinion, and I am sticking with it.
