the Senate, and discussed how to become a legislator. The group toured the Capitol and visited the Senate floor during a session. They also participated in a mock debate about the legalization

of marijuana, where students played roles such as lawmakers, proponents, opponents, and lobbyists. Anderson (R-Moline) will host another Youth Advisory Council day in the fall.

She also recorded her presentation on CDs, to share with schools nationwide. Carpenter will be unable to attend the ceremony. A bridging ceremony will take place, where Girl Scouts at each level can walk across a bridge to the next

level. Girl Scouts who have earned the Bronze Award, the highest award for Girl Scout Juniors in fourth or fifth grades, and the Silver Award, the highest which a Cadette in sixth through eighth grades can earn, also will be recognized.

Willy is given to Kelly, who becomes so excited about the new pig that she forgets to care for the other animals she owns. The other animals become jealous, and begin to play tricks on the little pig.  Margosein is a retired high school teacher who also has experience in elementary, junior high, and college teaching. She wrote another book with Flaska, “Waddling Walter Runs Away to the Wide, Wide World.”

The crazy part is $91,000 would barely cover 4 years of schooling at a 4-year school at this time. The Foundation also provides grants to teachers to attend the Summer Ag Institute, and it also has donated ag books to libraries and day cares in the past. ••• It is hard to believe it is graduation time. For myself, I have one more year. Time has certainly flown. School gets out next week. This means we have library programs coming up in June! Watch for dates and times to be released here in the next 2 weeks. ••• I hope you are out there trying out which burger could be the best burger in Carroll County!

Byron 7, Pearl City 3 WEDNESDAY Newman 11, Pearl City 1 TUESDAY Rochelle 13, Sterling 2, 5 innings: The Golden Warriors checked out early and never got anything going in an NIB12 West loss to Rochelle at Gartner Park. Rochelle rapped out 13 hits against three Sterling pitchers, and scored in every inning. The Hubs had plenty of help from a Sterling club that struggled in all facets. The Golden Warriors committed five errors, issued seven walks, hit two batters, and allowed runs to score on both a wild pitch and a passed ball. Sterling had a chance to stay in the game, as it had runners on second and third with one out in the first, second and fourth innings. All it had to show from those opportunities was an RBI single from Reilly Hay in the fourth. Sterling’s other run came in the first, on an RBI single from Willman. John Kisner got the win for Rochelle. He went the distance, allowing two runs, six hits, a walk and a hit batsman, with seven strikeouts. One of the hits allowed by Kisner was from Trey Morse, a single in the first inning. It gave him 125 hits for his 4-year varsity career, tied for the top spot in SHS history with Danny Matznick. Dylan Bryant took the loss. He gave up seven runs (six earned), seven hits and five walks in three innings. He also struck out three. Polo 11, Milledgeville 5: The Missiles allowed the Marcos to get to the.500 mark after an NUIC East road loss.
