The Review December 10, 2013 UNEMPLOYMENT

Jobless rates hold steady in Sauk Valley Carroll, Bureau counties see year-to-year improvement, in fact BY PAM EGGEMEIER

Despite a 2-month wait since the release of the last county unemployment statistics, numbers throughout the Sauk Valley haven’t changed much during that time. A combined report for September and October was released Thursday, as the Illinois Department of Employment Security played catch-up from the partial government shutdown. Federal Bureau of Labor statistics activity came to a standstill from Oct. 1 through Oct. 16. That information is needed by state agencies to compile unemployment reports. Both Lee and Whiteside counties saw their jobless rates increase by one-tenth of a percentage point from September to October. Lee County’s rate inched up from 8.7 to 8.8 percent during that period. Whiteside’s jobless rate moved from 8.2 percent to 8.3 percent. The year-over-year movement was

also marginal in both counties. Lee County’s jobless rate in October 2012 was a mirror-image at 8.3 percent. In Whiteside County, October of last year was slightly lower at 8.6 percent. The highest unemployment rate in the region still belongs to Ogle County. It was 9.2 percent in both September and October, which was an improvement from its 9.7 percent rate from 2012. Both Carroll and Bureau counties saw year-over-year drops in their jobless rates. Carroll dropped from 7.5 percent to 7.3 percent from September to October, while Bureau saw a slight increase from 8 percent to 8.1 percent month to month. The numbers held steady during the period throughout most of the state, according to IDES Communications Manager Greg Rivara. “The local data was very similar across the state for October,� Rivara said. “There were minor movements up or down, and the reasons were simi-

lar in many localities.� Downward movements in certain state metro areas, particularly Peoria and Decatur, were tied to a global economic slowdown that has affected larger companies like Caterpillar and John Deere. Rivara said there is positive movement with job growth statewide. In the past 46 months, the state has seen 34 months of job growth, with only 12 months of losses. Illinois gained 10,300 jobs in September and 15,400 in October – the state’s largest 2-month increase since May 2010. “It’s coming at a deliberate pace, but our reports indicate it should continue,� Rivara said. Congressional gridlock could pose a threat to local economic growth, IDES Director Jay Rowell said in a news release Thursday. “Our overall economic growth will be slowed if Congress does not continue unemployment benefits for the longterm unemployed as it approaches

another federal budget deadline in January,� Rowell said. Seasonal factors usually come into play at the beginning of the year, when construction activity slows for the winter, and temporary holiday retail jobs dry up. Retail activity was slightly better statewide during October. The local data is always preliminary when first released. The 2013 revised data will not be available until April. Rivara said that when the revised data came out for 2012, it showed significantly more growth. “It will be interesting to see if that trend continues,� he said.

Red alerts for fire safety raised in Dixon Wreaths’ lights changed if holiday-related fire occurs Safety tips

BY MATT MENCARINI

DIXON – During this time of year, houses all across Dixon have wreaths hanging out front. And the two firehouses are no different. On Tuesday, the Dixon City and Rural fire departments, for the 20th consecutive year, hung wreaths for the Keep the Wreath Red campaign. The goal is to increase fire safety awareness, specifically with holiday-related fires. Until Monday, Jan. 6, the wreaths at both departments will be aglow with red lights and a single red light in the middle. That is, unless there’s a holiday-related fire in either department, at which point the lights will be turned white. As the wreath was being hung on the Dixon Rural fire house, Chief Norris Tucker Jr. said he’s a little superstitious, so the white lights are already on the wreath. He just hopes they won’t be needed. Kitson’s Tree Farm in Dixon donated the wreath to the Dixon City Fire Department, and Nichol’s Flowers and Greenhouses in Dixon donated the wreath to Dixon Rural. Dixon City Fire Department Chief Tim Shipman said his department runs fire safety awareness programs all year with school children and adults, because it’s a proactive approach. “The motto is, ‘Fire

Holiday decorations present an increased risk of fires, the chiefs said, with old extension cords and lights being used around trees that can dry out and catch fire quickly. Shipman said the Keep the Wreath Red campaign was started by Paul Boecker, who worked as a firefighter in the Chicago suburbs. Boecker first had the idea in 1954, but it gained traction in 1971 after he became the fire chief for the LisleWoodridge Fire Department. A handful of other area fire departments participate in the campaign, Shipman said, adding that it was adopted by the Illinois Fire Chiefs Association in 1980. Since 1983, when the two local departments started putting up the wreaths, both chiefs have noticed the switch to white lights happens less frequently, they said. Asked whether he thought the Keep the Wreath Red campaign had made a difference in the Dixon area, Shipman was optimistic. “I hope so,� he said. “I think so.�

The wreath is meant to remind people to be extra cautious during the holiday season. Its red lights chance to white only if there’s a holiday-related fire in either department.

Ice sculpting at Ottawa festival encourages winter

BY ANDREA MILLS

O

TTAWA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No one knows cold like those who take up ice sculpting. Area lovers of winter, or those who think they just might be able to tolerate the cold, can seek art Dec. 14 at Ice Odyssey, an ice sculpting event along the streets of downtown Ottawa. Artists will transform blocks of ice into holiday artwork from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Madison Street. The public is welcome to stroll by and watch their progress. Before the sculpting gets underway, visitors can get warm in the first OES Reindeer Run. This run-walk takes off from Ottawa Township High School, 211 E. Main St. Race day registration is from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. The runners start at 8 a.m. and walkers at 8:15. There is an entry fee of $25. Children 10 and younger have their own adventure in the Fun Run, which begins at 8:45 a.m. Those attending the festival can take stagecoach rides for $1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Jordon Block Park, 119 W. Main St. They also can look over the holiday bazaar from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 725 LaSalle St. Items available include gift baskets, homemade soap, candles, glasswork, and jewelry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a variety of merchandise. Visitors who want some chilly sports can head to the park to play nine holes of miniature golf from 10 a.m.

Prep: 30 minutes Cook: 4 minutes per batch Makes: eight 4-inch pancakes For Swirl: 1/4 cup pecans, toasted 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 pinch fine salt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted For Glaze: 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened 2 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 to 2 tablespoons milk For Pancakes: 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 egg 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup milk 1 cup flour 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon baking

powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon fine salt Canola oil, for cooking Grind: To make swirl, toss nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, soda and salt in the food processor. Grind fine. Stir in melted butter. Scrape this paste into a small ziptop bag. Mash: To make glaze, beat together butter, cream cheese, confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar and vanilla. Thin with a little milk. Scrape into a small ziptop bag. Whisk: To make pancake batter, settle butter in a large bowl. Zap to melt. Whisk in, in order: egg, buttermilk and milk. Sift in flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk briefly. Let rest 10 minutes. Swirl: Set a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Slick with just a little oil. Scoop on batter, using a 1/3-cup measure. Nudge each pancake into a 4-inch circle. Snip a corner off the swirl bag. Squeeze on a spiral of the nutty paste. Crisp: As pancakes cook, trace over the swirl with a toothpick or knifetip; this will help the swirl sink into the batter. Cook until the center of each pancake is speckled with popping bubbles, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is browned, 1 minute. Keep warm in a 200-degree oven while crisping remaining cakes, adding oil as needed. Wipe out the skillet with an oiled paper towel between batches. Serve: Stack up two cakes, swirl side up, on each of 4 plates. Snip a corner off the glaze bag. Drizzle with glaze. Dig in.

ROCK FALLS

Ups and downs mean city needs more revenue Tax levy gets 2nd reading Dec. 17 BY PAM EGGEMEIER

ROCK FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pension costs are going up, and property values are going down. A likely result of both occurrences is that the Rock Falls government will increase its tax levy for 2014 by 4.99 percent. Because the increase would be less than 5 percent, no public hearing is required. But the City Council will give the proposed levy increase â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from $1,052,421.67 this year to $1,102,681.85 next

year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a second read at its next meeting, scheduled for Dec. 17. City Administrator Robbin Blackert said the average Rock Falls homeowner will see about 17 percent of their property taxes go to the city. Blackert said the tax increase is largely the result of increased pension contributions and a substantial loss in equalized assessed valuation over the past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The value of property as of Jan. 1, 2013, showed about a $2 million loss,â&#x20AC;? Blackert said. Several factors come into play regarding EAV, making it difficult, if not

To attend The Rock Falls City Council next meets at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 17, at City Hall, 603 W. 10th St. The agendas will be posted at www.rockfalls61071.com and at City Hall. Call 815-6221100 for more information. The City Council meeting also can be viewed live on Channel 5.

impossible, to plan for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are abandoned and foreclosed properties, and the loss of businesses that all drive down EAV,â&#x20AC;? Blackert said. Economic development is the biggest catalyst in driving valuations

back up, but Blackert said a big development project takes about 3 years to make a difference. Rising pension costs account for 47 percent of the levy increase. The most significant increase in city contributions was a 32.78 percent hike in police pension funding. The Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, which is for city and school district employees, will see an increase of 21.74 percent in city funding in 2014. Close behind is the fire department pension, which increases by 21.73 percent. The fire pensions are fully funded, while the

police department is funded at 80 percent. Blackert says the police department is in good shape, because the investments in that pension fund are getting a good rate of return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our pensions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in horrible shape; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re holding our own,â&#x20AC;? Blackert said. Rock Falls will not have a public hearing before adoption of its levy. According to Illinois Truth in Taxation law, a notice must be published in a newspaper and a public hearing held, only if the proposed aggregate tax levy is more than 5 percent greater then the previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax extension.

Finance Committee Chairman Glen Kuhlemier said the council and department heads always make a concerted effort to keep the levy increases under 5 percent. This year was particularly challenging, given the EAV and pension situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The terrible EAV reduction really sharpens an increase in the levy, and the pensions we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have control over,â&#x20AC;? the Second Ward alderman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we were able to hold the line on levies we had control over. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good levy, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done our due diligence.â&#x20AC;?

2014 ELECTION | OGLE COUNTY

Few contests in March primary; Harn, Rock have foes BY VINDE WELLS

OREGON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While Ogle County voters in the Republican Party primary election March 18 wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have many contested races to decide, two key posts are at stake. Sheriff Michael Harn will have two Republican challengers. Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney Michael Rock will have one.

Democrats will have even less on their ballot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one candidate for Ogle County Board. Hopefuls in county races had until Monday to file their candidacies. Harn, of Forreston, will seek his second 4-year term as sheriff. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be challenged in the primary by Rochelle Police Officer Brian Van Vickle and Rock Valley Police

Chief Joe Drought, also a Rochelle resident. Rock, of Byron, was appointed stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney in January. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll face Republican primary opposition from Oregon attorney Eric Morrow. County Clerk Rebecca Huntley, of Chana, and Treasurer John Coffman, of Polo, are running unopposed in the Republican primary. Also without primary

challenges are all Ogle County Board candidates. Kimberly Kirkolis, of Davis Junction, is not seeking a second term in District 1. J. Nick Bolin, of Holcomb, is seeking the Republican nomination. Incumbent Republican Patricia Nordman, Oregon, is the only candidate in District 2. The configuration of the County Board

changed in 2012, when districts were reapportioned following the the 2010 census. The candidates running in 2014 drew 2-year terms. The reapportionment also increased board districts from four to eight. Consequently, some board members elected in 2012 drew 2-year terms, while others drew 4-year terms.

Each district is represented by three county board members. Candidates successful in the March primary will be on the ballot for the November general election. After the primaries, political parties will have the chance to fill vacancies on their ballots.

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 specifically licensed 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.
