Shooter killed ‘best friend’

Victim was involved with Harris’ ex-wife BY CHRISTI WARREN

ROCK FALLS – The shooting that left one man dead and two injured outside Lamb’s

Tap early Saturday stemmed, it seems, from a relationship dispute. The tragic episode that took the life of Frederick A. Leonard Michels also led “Frank” the shooter, Leon- Harris Jr. ard “Frank” Harris Jr., to take his own life a short time later as police closed in on his home. In a court

filing last month, Harris had referred to Michels as his “best friend.” Rock Falls Police were called shortly after 12:30 a.m. Saturday when a Frederick A. Michels 911 call reported that shots had been fired near the bar. Upon arriving, they found the body of Michels lying on the sidewalk.

Harris had fled the scene. At the time of his death, according to his obituary, Michels was involved in a relationship with Harris’ ex-wife, Brenda. That night, police say, Brenda was at the bar with Michels. The Harrises had only recently divorced. “Your Honor, I loved this woman for almost 15 years,” Harris wrote in a court filing

from Dec. 16. “Gave her everything. Told her she didn’t have to work, I made enough. Raised her children as my own. Only to be betrayed by her and my best friend.” The two had one child together, a 10-year-old girl. According to public records, Brenda and Leonard Harris were married on Nov. 23, 2002.

IN BRIEF

Where your tax money goes

-ANGETSLIFE FORBEATING DEATH

N

o one likes to pay property taxes. When you pay them, though, you might be comforted by the fact that the money goes toward critical public services. For instance, the city portion of your bill, you might reason, funds needed services such as police, fire protection and street maintenance. You would be right, but you’re missing a big component. Would you be surprised to find out that a large portion of your money funds pensions? I was. Rock Falls recently reported that 47 percent of its property tax levy is devoted toward its con-

tributions to the police, fire and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund pensions. In Sterling, that cost is 41 percent. Dixon, which has different circumstances, directs 25 percent of its property tax revenue to pensions. For years, then-Comptroller Rita Crundwell levied too

much property tax revenue for the IMRF, Finance Director Paula Meyer said. As a result, the city levies nothing for that fund these days. While the pension costs seem steep, it’s important to note that property taxes make up only a portion of a city’s general fund revenue. Other sources fund things besides pensions. In Sterling, for instance, property taxes make up a little less than a quarter of the revenue for the general fund, which pays for operations of most city departments. Sales taxes make up the biggest part at 38.3 percent, while state income tax

revenue comes in third at 14.1 percent. Still, property tax bills have a bigger emotional impact on people. Sales taxes are paid in small chunks, and income taxes go to Springfield. Property taxes come with annual sticker shock. You might wonder why such a big proportion of your property taxes goes to pensions at a time when most private sector workers no longer have such a perk. Many government employees, however, support the current system. For cities around here, most of the pension levies go to retired police officers and firefighters. Those

expenses, some might argue, should be lumped into the costs of having police and fire protection. People might take those relatively lowpaying, dangerous jobs knowing that at least they’ll get a pension when they retire. That’s true. Still, I was surprised at how much property tax revenue goes toward pensions. Are you? David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media.

CHICAGO (AP) – A man has been sentenced to life in prison for the brutal beating death of his elderly aunt. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office says 56-year-old David Brown of Maywood was sentenced late Wednesday. Authorities say Brown assaulted Franklin, beating her in the head with a ceramic coffee mug. They say Brown then robbed her of jewelry and her car. He was later arrested when he crashed the car into a tree. Franklin died of cranial cerebral injuries several weeks after the attack.

What’s your definition of normal? BY SHERRY DEWALT CGH Medical Center

S

omeone told me the other day that they chose not to exercise or follow their healthy eating plan over the holidays, because they wanted to just be like “normal� people during that time period. Starting with Thanksgiving and through New Year’s, they ate, drank and made merry to the tune of several pounds they had previously lost; undoing months of hard work. We all let loose a little bit over the holidays, but

beyondTRIM Sherry DeWalt is a community health educator at CGH Medical Center in Sterling. Reach her at SDeWal@ cghmc.com

what struck me about the conversation was that this person did not define healthy eating and working out as normal. They haven’t truly made the switch from the mindset of “being on

a diet� to changing their lifestyle. Adopting a healthy eating and activity plan for life is the best way to lose and maintain your weight and to protect yourself against many diseases. In a healthy eating plan, there is room for the occasional treat, and that allows you to plan for and deal with special occasions and the holidays. If you make a habit of exercise or other strenuous activity, that becomes your normal pattern, and lying around

makes you uncomfortable. Adopting a healthy lifestyle gives you the energy, the strength, and the positive attitude to deal with life’s ups and downs. A healthy eating plan is one that includes daily servings of fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat or nonfat dairy products. Limit sweets like pies, cookies, cake, candy, sodas, and other sugar-sweetened beverages. Combine beans or legumes with grains a couple of times each

She filed for divorce on June 11, citing “extreme and repeated mental cruelty.� Police said Leonard Harris also shot two other men that night: Jason Chapman, 37, and David Adams, 22, both of Sterling. They suffered nonlife-threatening injuries, and, Rock Falls Chief Mike Kuelper said the men were just “in the wrong place at the wrong time.� After the shooting, Harris walked north, away from the bar, across the First Avenue bridge, and disappeared into his home in the 300 block of Sixth Avenue in Sterling. Authorities later found his body in his garage; he apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Harris’ divorce was granted Oct. 31. The two still were in the midst of court proceedings at the time of the shootings. Memorial services were conducted Wednesday for both Michels and Harris.

SLOW COOKER

Forget-it meals to keep in mind BY VIRGINIA A. SMITH MCT News Service

I

n 1978, at the height of the Crock-Pot fad, Phyllis Pellman Good received one as a gift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here,â&#x20AC;? said the neighbor who bestowed it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you need this.â&#x20AC;? Good was a working mother of two small girls and, while husband Merle was great at cleaning up, the cooking fell to her. No stranger to the kitchen, she and her husband were founders of Good Books, the Intercourse, Pa., publisher that specializes in cookbooks and other works about Amish and Mennonite life, and she already had several titles under her belt and a local following. So she tried this new countertop appliance embraced for its ability to cook one-dish meals with a low, moist heat, over many hours, without anyone needing to be in the kitchen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very impressed,â&#x20AC;? Good recalls. All that changed in 2000, when she and her husband were heavily lobbied by their Good Books staff to produce a slow-cooker cookbook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept saying to them, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How many ways can you make beef stew?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she says skeptically. Eventually, she solicited slow-cooker recipes from friends, local cooks, and visitors to the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place, the Goodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; AmishMennonite educational center in Intercourse. About 2,000 recipes poured in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was totally overwhelmed. I had to take this seriously,â&#x20AC;? says Good, a convert to what she now calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;a nearmiracle applianceâ&#x20AC;? that, according to the NPD Group, a consumer market research firm, 83 percent of Americans own. Channeling their workhorse forebears, the newer slow-cooker models can still turn out aromatic buckets of chili and stew. But their aerodynamic lines and sophisticated safety features and heat and temperature controls herald a new day, and a yearround culinary repertoire that includes meat, fish, vegetables, bread, pizza, pasta, and desserts.

925 Depot Avenue

Here, Good, 64, a Mennonite who learned to cook only after she married, has found her niche. You might even call it an empire. Over the last 30 years, Good has written 15 cookbooks, including seven for a slow-cooker series called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fix-It and Forget-It.â&#x20AC;? In 2002, without advertising or marketing, that first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fix-Itâ&#x20AC;? cookbook was the topselling trade paperback in the country. (With 5 million sold, it remains one of the best-selling cookbooks ever.) That same year, the second â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fix-Itâ&#x20AC;? was 15th on the list. In 2013, Good released two more in the series, one with the American Diabetes Association. Another is due out in fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to be careful,â&#x20AC;? she says, anticipating a visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you bring them out too fast, you can cannibalize yourself.â&#x20AC;? In all, this modest, selftaught home cook has sold more than 11 million cookbooks. Yet she remains unknown to all but her fans, people who, as Good puts it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;cook because they must.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a celebrity. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been invited on a TV cooking show,â&#x20AC;? Good acknowledges, although sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a regular on QVC. She explains: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My heart is with people who want to feed their families at home, who work, whose kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedules are crazy, who are involved in their community, but who see the value of sitting at the table every night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slow-cookers take the pressure off between 5 and 6 p.m., the horror hour,â&#x20AC;? she says. Good is particularly attached to her cookers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two at home, eight more at her Good Cooking Store in Intercourse, where she gives cooking classes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Thanksgiving through Super Bowl season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are home. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always around, for all kinds of meals, not just feasts,â&#x20AC;? she says. Slow-cookers range from 1.5 quarts to 8, costing $20 to $200. They free up oven space, always a plus at holidays, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heat up a room, which puts the lie to the canard that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coldweather appliances only.

The new models do, however, cook hotter and faster, increasing the risk of drying things out. It even happens to Good once in a while. During a lengthy interview for this article, she lost track of time, and while the apples and sweet potatoes in the pot still had nice texture, the pork loin was dry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pork is particularly susceptible to drying out,â&#x20AC;? Good says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to get to know your cooker. It takes some dancing to get used to.â&#x20AC;? Good has some advice: Make the first recipe in your new slow-cooker on a day when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at home. Cook it for the shortest amount of time the recipe calls for, check to see if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, and adjust accordingly. Write your findings next to the recipe, for next time. By then, you can just â&#x20AC;&#x153;fix it and forget it.â&#x20AC;?

DNR sharpshooters could cull herd, CWD ROCKFORD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinois wildlife officials want to persuade landowners in some northern Illinois counties to let them shoot deer to control the spread of chronic wasting disease. The Rockford Register Star reports that the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be approaching Rock River Valley property owners as part of an effort to limit the spread of the illness, which affects the nervous system of members of the deer family and is always fatal.

Experts say using sharpshooters to cull the herd helps limit the spread of the disease. State figures show there were 36 cases of chronic wasting disease reported in the state in the 2013 fiscal year. The first case was reported in Illinois in 2002 and state wildlife officials have since sampled tens of thousands of deer. Since then, 408 cases of the illness have been confirmed, according to state statistics. About two-thirds of those cases were found in Winnebago

and Boone counties. But some hunters are skeptical of the plan. South Beloit resident Robert Miller says the state should instead extend the deer hunting season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state of Illinois is broken and then they are still spending thousands of dollarsâ&#x20AC;? for state employees to come hunt in the region, he said. But Doug Dufford, the DNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wildlife disease and invasive species manager, said cutting down the number of deer in the region is

essential for maintaining the health of the herd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a program that, to be honest, nobody wants to do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very expensive, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work,â&#x20AC;? Dufford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not particularly

pleasant, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to ensure that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deer herd in Illinois 40 years from now.â&#x20AC;? Deer that contract chronic wasting disease become emaciated and uncoordinated and

eventually lose weight and die. But some infected deer may not show signs of the illness for 18 months after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been infected, according to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

An eye exam is a good idea, especially if things are starting to look a little fuzzy around the edges.

CHILD CARE

512

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. 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. (DCFS Rule, Part 377.3 (c))
