DATELINE DIXON | TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CRUNDWELL ARREST

Waves of crime still rippling Change in form of government considered

T

wo years ago today, federal agents were in City Hall, collecting computers and records and arresting Comptroller Rita Crundwell. The waves of her crime still are making their way through Dixon and through the federal agencies that seized and sold her assets and prosecuted her. The U.S. Marshals Service has sold nearly all of

Crundwell’s assets and given the city about $9.2 million in restitution. But more assets remain – a share in a land partnership and some bank accounts. And marshals continues to look for more. Crundwell, who admitted to stealing nearly $54 million from the city over two decades, still can appeal her federal prison sentence of 19 years, 7 months. That means there could be more judges and lawyers spending more time reviewing her crime and its impact on Dixon. The waves continue. In the past 2 years,

the city has hired a new finance director, Paula Meyer, and a city administrator, David Nord. Both were brought in as a direct result of Crundwell’s theft. In November, Dixon residents will vote on whether to change the city’s form of government from commission to city manager. The ballot question was first recommended by a governmental task force appointed by Dixon Mayor Jim Burke, then approved by the City Council. The consideration of the best form of government

for Dixon also is a result of the Crundwell saga. In the current commission form, elected officials have the executive and policymaking authority. A change to the city manager form would give executive authority to a city manager, while the elected officials would retain policymaking authority, among other nuances. The waves continue. I’m now the third reporter on the Dixon beat since Crundwell’s arrest. I wasn’t even living in the state when she was arrested, yet I write her name and reference her

crime about three times a week. Every time I run a spell check on a story with her name in it, I see what the system thinks I actually mean. It always suggests the same thing: Groundswell. It’s an odd coincidence. But it became more odd during an interview April 8 between Burke, Meyer, Nord and the Sauk Valley Media editorial board. Burke said it is likely, but not certain, that he will seek re-election in 2015. The mayor said he thinks some of the initial anger toward him and the City Council has receded,

so “unless there’s some groundswell� to make him think he would lose, he said he would try to win a fifth term. I likely was the only person in the room of 10 people who latched onto the word “groundswell.� I also likely was the only one there who sees it so often as a suggested correction for the word “Crundwell.� More than anything, Burke’s re-election might depend on voters’ opinions of Crundwell and her crime. The waves could continue. ~ Matt Mencarini

Recovery has French connection Kitchen requires much renovation munity State Bank and these programs, I don’t know if I could get this put together, so I’m very grateful,� Knoll said. The project has been in the works since last summer. Knoll looked at a few buildings in Dixon, which is where she wanted to set up, and chose the old Cantonese restauran. Despite its renovation challenges, “it has good bones,� she said. “That thing’s made like a tank.� The bistro will be another addition to what’s becoming a thriving and vibrant west end, which is going through a mini resurgence after the loss of a few businesses only a year ago, Main Street Executive Director Josh Albrecht said. “Things go in cycles in the downtown, in any area as far as development goes,� he said. After the closures, Albrecht predicted that “within a year’s time, [that area] would be drastically different, and it is.� Dixon Paint opened at 205 W. First St., Roxie’s vintage resale shop

DIXON – A taste of the French countryside will be on the menu of local restaurants come this summer. Linda Knoll, of Dixon, has bought the former Fung Ming building downtown, where she hopes to open her 319 Bistro by the Fourth of July. It’s yet another business joining a kind of west-end renaissance. The breakfast-lunchand-dinner bistro will have a French country theme, but all kinds of homemade food – French, Mexican, chicken, steaks, pastries, crepes, and on and on and on. She’s in negotiations with a local chef or two, and still is looking for a line cook and some wait staff. Alcohol will be served, but she’s shooting for a very particular atmosphere. “I want it to be a restaurant with a bar,� Knoll said, “not a bar with a restaurant,� like an Applebees or a Buffalo Wild Wings. At the moment, the solid little brick building, vacant for about 4 years, is in tres terrible shape, with broken pipes, a leaky roof and trash all over its 3,600 square feet, but she’s cleaning up everything with the help of her youngest, Cole Blackburn, who turns 15 this month, and a few of his pals. “I don’t know where I’d be without them; they’ve got the muscles!� she said. She’s also taking advantage of the city’s facade grant and lowinterest business loan programs. “If it wasn’t for Com-

In addition, that area is set to get streetscape work and a new parking lot this summer. Dixon is getting to be known for its downtown culinary and artistic options, so the addition of the bistro is “absolutely fantastic; it’s a great thing for that block,� Albrecht said. “It’s just a great addition to the downtown.� Knoll, 48, has been in banking since 1982, and is a mortgage banker for Riverside Bank in Sterling and Rock Falls.

Village found in violation of meetings act Lyndon had already acknowledged it broke the law BY DAVID GIULIANI

LYNDON – The attorney general’s office has found that Lyndon’s board of trustees broke the Open Meetings Act – a violation the village had already acknowledged. Last week, the state attorney general issued a letter to the village, saying the board should vote on only those issues

IN BRIEF Report: April soil moisture level high in Illinois CHAMPAIGN (AP) – Illinois officials say the level of soil moisture is high

listed on its meeting agendas. On Jan. 14, 2013, the board voted to buy shirts and a coat for the police chief without first posting the issue on its meeting agenda. In response, village resident Tracy Shaffer filed a complaint with the attorney general, prompting the board to admit its violation and revote the issue. Two months ago, the village attorney provided the attorney general with copies of the meeting agenda and minutes to prove the issue had

been revoted, according to the letter. In its determination last week, the attorney general’s office said that because the village had already corrected the matter, no further action was required. “We remind the board, however, of its continuing obligation to comply with all requirements of [the Open Meetings Act],� Assistant Attorney General Tola Sobitan said in the letter. Village President Tim Crady said the matter was closed.

“We made a mistake. We were in a situation where we just hired the chief, and he needed uniforms,� he said. “We have to remember to put things on the agenda. It was an oversight.� In an email, Shaffer said the public clearly wants to know what is happening with its tax dollars. “I am glad that the attorney general’s office allows for public input so that the public and governing bodies can work together to achieve accountability,�

she said. Last fall, the village’s attorney, Tim Zollinger, reminded the board of its obligations under the Open Meetings Act. He did so after Shaffer informed the attorney general that the village president had decided to expand a tree removal project, having called three of the six trustees to get their approval. Zollinger informed the board that it could take action only at a properly advertised meeting, not through a phone poll. In 2012, Crady admit-

ted to “dropping the ball� by having a board vote behind closed doors. To correct that mistake, he called a special meeting to revote the issue, which was the firing of an employee, Will Shaffer, husband of Tracy Shaffer. After residents complained about the vote behind closed doors, the trustees voted publicly on the issue at a later meeting. Will Shaffer has sued the village, saying his firing was discriminatory.

across Illinois. The University of Illinois’ Prairie Research Institute said Wednesday soil moisture levels were measured on April 14 by the Illinois State Water Survey. The levels averaged 37 percent by volume at 2

inches deep across the state. Conditions were wetter at the deeper depths. Moisture levels averaged 41 percent by volume at 20 inches and 44 percent at 59 inches. Officials say soil tem-

peratures dropped slightly with this week’s cooler weather. Soil temperatures at 4 inches under bare soil averaged 51.3 degrees.

STERLING – A free American Red Cross disaster preparedness workshop will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday at Sterling Federal Bank, 110 E. Fourth St. Northern Illinois Center for Independent Living

will present the program, which is open to the public. Registration is required; to sign up, call 815-625-7860. Visit nicil.org for more information.

The Great Doughnut Debate in Lee County

W

e cover a lot of public boards and commissions in the area. They all have traditions. Some are charming. In Mount Carroll, at the start of a City Council meeting, someone pulls a string to ring a bell in the City Hall tower, which alerts the public. The Lee County Board has its tradition, too – a doughnut and coffee break, which takes at least 15 minutes after about an hour into its morning meeting. Last year, member Tom Kitson, R-Dixon, asked the county to include more nutritious fare. And the county did, adding apples and bananas. Others apparently liked the idea. Any number of members, including Kitson, chomp on fruit during breaks. A couple of months ago, member Wes Morrissey, D-Amboy, pro-

posed to push breaks to the end of meetings. Those with day jobs agreed. Other members stood by the tradition, saying the chairman should have the right to call breaks. The doughnut debate was unlike any the board had seen in months, with one member accusing his bickering colleagues of “acting like Congress.� In the end, Chairman Rick Ketchum, D-Amboy, said he would make the call, deciding whether to have doughnuts during

or after the meeting. (Apparently, beforehand is not an option.) In the two meetings since, Ketchum has called the breaks about an hour into the meeting. The status quo won. During this month’s break, I asked Morrissey about his bold, ultimately failed gambit. Biting into a banana, Morrissey, one of the younger members, acknowledged defeat. “We lose our momentum with the break,� he said. “I’d like to get business done.� Unfortunately for Morrissey, many of his colleagues see breaks as icing on the cake – or doughnuts, in this case.

Participation up at Sauk Career Fair Ninety percent of employers hiring this year BY PAM EGGEMEIER Photos by Alex T. Paschal

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger speaks with community leaders Wednesday morning at Woods Equipment Co. in Oregon. Kinzinger toured the plant and spoke in support of the Association of Equipment Manufacturersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Make Americaâ&#x20AC;? campaign, whose truck (shown below) made one of its nationwide, awareness-raising stops at the factory Wednesday. Go to www.imakeamerica.com for more information on that campaign.

Woods investing, growing Factory adding 23 jobs; Kinzinger optimistic on manufacturing BY DAVID GIULIANI

OREGON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the economy ticking up, so is Woods Equipment Co. in Oregon, executives say. The company, which employs 300, plans to add 23 more jobs to its factory, where backhoes and other attachments for tractors are made. Last year, Woods, a division of Portland, Ore.based Blount International, added a laser cutting system, which was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;biggest investment in 20 years,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Miller, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief financial officer. Executives said the equipment improves the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accuracy and efficiency. It also frees up space in the 400,000-square-foot building, which will be used to make other yetto-be-determined products, Miller said. On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, toured the plant and spoke to workers at an outside rally sponsored by the Association of Equip-

ment Manufacturersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Make Americaâ&#x20AC;? campaign. Shortly before 11 a.m., employees stood outside as winds whipped the U.S., Illinois and Woods flags overhead. The congressman, in a suit and tie, told the crowd that he was optimistic about the economy, particularly manufacturing in the northern part of his 16th Congressional District, which includes Lee and Ogle counties. His biggest concern, Kinzinger said, was policies in Illinois that drive jobs away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not losing jobs to India anymore,â&#x20AC;? Kinzinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing jobs to Indiana.â&#x20AC;? For instance, he said in an earlier news conference, the minimum wage is higher in Illinois than the national average, yet the state has one of the highest jobless rates. He ended his short speech to the workers by saying that he understands people have little trust for politicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an understatement,â&#x20AC;? an employee whispered.

Lampert, of Dixon, sat at a table, diligently filling out a job application at Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Career Fair at Sauk Valley Community College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my job in magazine distribution after 22 years in February,â&#x20AC;? Lampert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much out there, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much experience in looking for work to compare it to.â&#x20AC;? While manufacturing seems to be picking up, she is having a difficult time finding something in specialty services. She has been applying for administrative, officetype positions, and she likes the convenience of the Career Fair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have so many employers here in one place,â&#x20AC;?

The turnout seemed to be better this year too, Carney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was rainy last year, and attendance was sporadic, but this year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been steady,â&#x20AC;? she said. The name switch from Jobs Fair to Career Fair allows for better representation from employers, because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be actively hiring to participate, Carney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be hiring, but this year about 90 percent are, so I think that shows the economy is starting to rebound,â&#x20AC;? she said. The list included representives from manufacturing like BorgWarner and Nippon Sharyo, health care employers KSB Hospital and Mercy Nursing Services, and even the leisure sector with Wild Rose Casino and Resort. The Career Fair is useful long after it ends, said Alan Pfeifer, academic vice president at Sauk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We share our information and insights from the event internally to help develop and modify our programs and help meet worker needs,â&#x20AC;? Pfeifer said. That process started early this morning with a presentation at a meeting of the Workforce Coalition, at which representatives from Sauk and several local employers discussed curriculum and workforce skills needs.

Magdich revered on and off the bench Former 15th Circuit judge dies at 74 BY CHRISTI WARREN

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Friends and family remember Tomas Magdich for his wit, dry sense of humor, and, of course, his speeches. Magdich, who served for 18 years as a judge in the 15th Judicial Circuit, died Tuesday. He was 74. Magdich was born in Gary, Ind., on July 2, 1939. His mother was a bookkeeper, and his father a carpenter. The hardworking and passionate nature Magdich was known for seems to have been instilled in him from a young age. He was just 13 when his father died, so Magdich worked as a newspaper delivery boy to help contribute to his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grocery money, according to his obituary, which is published on page A4 of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition. After graduating from high school in Gary, Magdich attended Ripon College in Wisconsin, where he met his future wife, Judy, and majored in philosophy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an interest he kept throughout his life. Bob Thompson, Lee County public defender and a long-

time family friend, remembers sitting around the Magdichesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kitchen table, staying up and debating philosophy and politics late into the night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was about exhanging ideas in a humorous and fun way,â&#x20AC;? Magdichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Michael, said of the late-night talks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always a student and very curious.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a lover of philosophy and he loved politics, and to talk about both would happen on a daily basis,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always give you your chance to chime in, but by the time you ended the conversation you were usually on his side.â&#x20AC;? After graduating from Ripon, Magdich attended Northwestern Law School, and during his first year, he and his wife Judy were married. A job opportunity in Dixon with the firm Gunner and Keller is what brought the young family to Dixon, where he lived and worked as a private attorney and city attorney before being appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court as a 15th Circuit Court judge in 1985. The circuit includes Lee, Ogle, Carroll, Stephenson and Jo Daviess counties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was beloved,â&#x20AC;? Thompson

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about it.â&#x20AC;? His sense of humor, too, was unique. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a really dry sense of humor that Tomas would always Magdich put people at ease,â&#x20AC;? Lee County Judge Ron Jacobson said. That same sense of humor carried over into his speeches, which Magdich was well known for making at various events throughout northern Illinois. Thompson and Magdichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, Michael, Amy, and Marjorie, talked about two speeches in particular. One of them, his children explained, started with a few jokes about how the Lee County Courthouse was designed by a company that made shopping malls, and then Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law struck, and somehow he ended up working in it for nearly 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The style â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t describe the style, because it was so unique,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was a style that would immediately capture

you, and you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but pay rapt attention to what he was saying. I wish I had that gift.â&#x20AC;? Another speech Magdich is well-known for was one called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The DCFS Investigation of Santa Claus,â&#x20AC;? which he delivered at a Bar Association dinner, Thompson said. Jacobson remembers arguing cases in front of Magdich as a young lawyer, and called him a very well-respected and intelligent man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would always be very thoughtful when he made his decisions,â&#x20AC;? Jacobson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He took his job very seriously and always kept in mind the concerns of all the parties involved. He was always a very accessible judge, too. You could always go up and talk to him and his opinion about issues, and he always enjoyed talking to lawyers in the community. He cared very much about the legal system and helping young lawyers become better lawyers, and he was always willing to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Judge Magdich will not be missed just by Lee County,â&#x20AC;? Jacobson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had an impact on all of us in the circuit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all five counties in the circuit. He will be missed by all of us.â&#x20AC;?

After his retirement in 2003, Magdich spent time teaching classes at Northern Illinois University. In his home life, as his children mentioned, Magdich threw himself into everything he did and had a real passion for learning, for fun, and for life. His children talked about how, while they were little, he would play the guitar and sing songs, and the whole family would sing along. Magdich loved traveling, and did so frequently with his family. He also loved gardening. Jacobson talked about one conversation in particular the two of them had when he mentioned off-handedly that he was getting ready to plant roses in his yard, which sparked a 20-minute conversation with Magdich about everything from planting tips to caring for roses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything he did, he just did so intensely,â&#x20AC;? his children said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way he was at work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so good at that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he was like that with everything. He so totally loved gardening, and would come in at the end of a Saturday dirty from head to toe. He just threw himself in to so much.â&#x20AC;?

STERLING | NEIGHBORHOOD STABILIZATION GRANT

Area likely to remain green space BY PAM EGGEMEIER

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A half-block vacant lot created by the demolition of distressed rental units near the Manahan Home is likely to be dressed up as green space. The property at 608-620 E. Third St. was the first acquired for demolition almost 5 years ago through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neighborhood Stabilization Program. One small commercial building and eight residential units were razed. The apartments were foreclosed in November 2009, and in June 2010 the City Council voted to tear them down. The city became involved in the housing program in 2010, receiving nearly $2.8 million from a federal grant. The main objective of the program is to buy and

rehab or rebuild foreclosed or abandoned properties, which then are sold to lowand moderate-income families. Rebuilding at this site is not an option, though. The buildings that were torn down had been put up lot line to lot line, and the space is not considered to be a buildable lot, said Mike Wolber, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former building and zoning coordinator who leads the grant program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably dress it up a bit and leave it as open green space,â&#x20AC;? Wolber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s across from the Manahan Home, so we could plant some flowers, put some benches in, and use it as a resting area.â&#x20AC;? The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s options also are limited by the Department of Housing and Urban Developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grant requirements. The city could sell the property, but

HUD says it must be sold to adjoining property owners, and it must house lowincome residents. The property also canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be donated to anyone else. That would rule out giving it to the Manahan Home on both counts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made a decision yet,â&#x20AC;? Wolber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city may just keep it.â&#x20AC;? If the area continues to be used as green space, it must remain city property. Some work has been done there, including the planting of trees a couple years ago, City Manager Scott Shumard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the grant stipulations, there are no real plans for the property at this time,â&#x20AC;? Shumard said. A grant technicality forced a transfer of the deed from the Sterling Industrial Development Commission to the city.

SIDC bought the property for $1,000 in 2009, before the grant funding became available, and HUD didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize the commission as a city entity for grant purposes. The transfer was made official at the April 14 commission meeting. Similar challenges exist with two other properties acquired through the program. Properties at East 10th Street and Sixth Avenue, and at Broadway and Fourth Street have lots that are too small to build on again. The adjoining properties at both sites are rentals and the city hopes the landlords could use the extra green space in an area where it is at a premium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are negotiating with the property owners,â&#x20AC;? Wolber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These buildings have no green space, and it offers something for recreational use.â&#x20AC;?

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))
