The Review May 27, 2014 DIXON | KREIDER SERVICES

Pooling pediatric resources New center to bring behavioral experts to a single location BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

DIXON – A grant will allow Kreider Services to open a facility aimed at making specialized pediatric services easily accessible for Sauk Valley families. The Pediatric Developmental Center could be open by the end of 2014 or early 2015, said Kreider’s Greg Gates, who wrote the grant that was submitted to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in December.

Kreider was told on April 24 that it was awarded the implementation grant, which will amount to $900,000 over 3 years – $300,000 a year – to complete what it started with a rural health planning grant from 2012, Gates said. The planning grant was for about $65,000, said Laura Watters, Kreider’s director of autism and day services, adding that there were some matching funds from Kreider involved with that grant. The center’s goal is to “make specialized pediatric services more accessible and decrease the time for children to receive accurate diagnosis and treatment,� according to a Kreider news release. The Pediatric Developmen-

tal Center will serve children 18 and younger living in Lee, Ogle, Carroll and Whiteside counties, the release said, “who exhibit developmental, emotional, social or behavioral concerns.� The idea for a center like this, where specialists in a variety of fields are all in one building, began to take shape in January 2008, Watters said, when Kreider was doing screenings for autism. Only a third of the children referred to Kreider were diagnosed with autism, she said, adding that the high number of non-autistic children referred indicated that there was a shortage of specialists. Making matters more frus-

trating for families is that available specialists weren’t centralized, Watters said, something that the center will address. Instead of parents being referred to a specialist in a different city and building, Watters said, after the center is up and running, parents could be referred to a specialist on a different floor. Gates said to his knowledge, Kreider was the only one to submit a grant application with a behavioral health focus, and that he thought the Pediatric Developmental Center could serve as a regional hub. “The impact that it could have is pretty significant in the long run,� he said, adding that if Kreider’s center succeeds it

could inspire other similar centers in other rural areas. Strengthening Kreider’s application, Gates said, was that it’s partnering with KSB Hospital, Sinnissippi Centers and other local groups. No location for the center has been chosen, Watters said. It likely will be in Dixon, since Kreider’s main focus is Lee and Ogle counties. There will be a physician training component to the center as well, she said. A staffing level hasn’t been determined, Watters said, and after the center gets running, Kreider might consider expanding, if necessary or possible.

NEW BUSINESS | JIMMY JOHN’S

Restaurant fills up freaky fast Arellano ‘really excited’ about Rock Falls location BY ANGEL SIERRA asierra@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5695

ROCK FALLS – The building at 511 First Ave. was alive Tuesday morning with the sharp clack of opening cash register drawers, indistinct chatter, and the smell of baked bread. From the road, a large blackand-red banner was the only signal to passersby that the new Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches restaurant had opened for business. “We didn’t really tell anybody [that we were opening]. We weren’t even sure today was going to be the day,� said store owner Liandro Arellano

Jr. “People had been trying to come in the last couple of days because we looked open.� He picked up the certificate of occupancy around 10 a.m., Liandro and by 10:30, Arellano Jr. customers were being served, Arellano said. Normally, the restaurant will open at 11 a.m., but Tuesday, business began as soon as bread was ready. “I’m really excited,� Arellano said. “It’s been a year process, maybe over a year. ... We’re really happy with the location, and the crew is certainly chomping at the bit to get going, too.� The restaurant is located in the

Make Her Happy, Happy, Happy! With New.. Flooring.

building that had been home to Zuppa’s Deli. The national company is expanding “pretty fast,â€? Arellano said as cars quickly filled the small parking lot at lunch time, and vehicles began to stack up near the drive-thru window. The company was very specific with the blueprints – how the store would look and feel to customers, said Arellano, who also owns a Jimmy John’s location in Dixon. “The architects were a little overloaded, which caused a delay on that end,â€? Arellano said. “Dixon and Rock Falls were very easy to work with. ‌ They told us up front what we needed, and I was able to plan around that. “We’re ready to rock.â€?

NEWMAN CENTRAL CATHOLIC | GRADUATION

Many thanks, many ways Grads reflect on support systems both near and far BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

Calling, not a career

ROCK FALLS – The 2014 Newman Central Catholic High School graduation ceremony was all about giving thanks. The 62 seniors who received diplomas Wednesday at St. Andrew Catholic Church were reminded often of what had gotten them to this point: faith, family, friends and faculty. When it came to thanking family, foreign exchange student Shilong Ryan Jin had his work cut out for him. Ryan’s parents made the nearly 7,000-mile trip from China to see their son graduate in the country he has called home since September 2012. But Ryan also had his American “parents� to thank. “I would like to thank my parents, who were always by my side supporting me and loving me unconditionally,� Ryan said. “I also want to thank my host family, Larry and Mardi Ybarra, who love me like my own parents.� Ryan also recognized his friends and teachers who helped him adjust to a very different way of life. “Western and Eastern culture is totally different,� Ryan said. “My teachers helped with language problems. They were always patient, and taught me how to solve problems at school and in life.� Ryan said there were more than 2,000 students at his school in China. He was able to form a solid support base at the small Catholic school. “This isn’t like school; it’s more like a home environment,� Ryan said. “You can make friends with everyone here. It’s easier here than in China.� Ryan will continue his studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, where he will focus on finance. He says he will weigh his job opportunities after college, and then decide whether he’ll stay here or go back to China.

Graduate Ryan Schoaf said his faith has guided him along a career path chosen during his junior year. He will head to Sauk Valley Community College for some basic studies before moving on to Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Wheeling. After seeking out Joe McDonald as a mentor, Ryan has had the opportunity to work at McDonald Funeral Home for 18 months. He started by prepping vehicles and now gets a chance to experience many aspects of the job. “I didn’t care what the job was at first,� Ryan said. “I just wanted a foot in the door to see how it all worked.� Ryan realizes it can be a misunderstood field, but he truly believe it chose him. “A lot of funeral directors say it’s a calling, and I really believe it is – just like a priest,� Ryan said. “Not everyone can do it, but you draw on your faith to do your best to help families through their time of loss.�

‘Burning sense of duty’ Grad Mitchell Jecklin said he has known where his career path would lead since his freshman year. “I knew I wanted a career in the military,� Mitchell said. “I have a burning sense of duty to pay back my community and country.� Mitchell, who has a brother currently on active duty, plans to go to Iowa State University for business, and through the Army ROTC program will enter the military as an officer after graduation. Mitchell calls the Kairos senior retreat one of the most memorable pieces of his senior year. The retreat, a longstanding

tradition at Newman, is a 3-day bonding trip with teachers and classmates. “It’s a time for us to reflect on the decisions we’ve made and what we see for our future,� Mitchell said. “It was a time of growth for me, and I felt really good about where I was headed.� Mitchell and Ryan Schoaf both played on the state championship football team, and say they will treasure the experience. Ryan looks forward to watching his brother play next year. “[Former NFL player] Sean Considine spoke at our mother/son banquet and told us that he would want to relive the state championship over the Super Bowl,� Ryan said.

Thankful for ‘real support’ Valedictorian Nathaniel Edison also gave thanks for the special friendships made at Newman. “We learned how to be a real friend at Newman – not just in good times,� Nathaniel said. “Although we’ll go our separate ways, we’ll always remember what it’s like to have real support.� Bishop David Malloy told the class to savor the moment and to remember that faith brings everything else into perspective. “You may never again feel such collective pride as you do at this moment,� Malloy said. “If you keep your faith, no matter what you do next, you’ll change the world.�

OGLE COUNTY

Board approves tow fund examination Should fraud be found, cost would spike BY VINDE WELLS vwells@shawmedia.com Shaw News Service

It’s official: The Ogle County Sheriff’s tow fund will get a full forensic examination. By a unanimous vote Tuesday, the County Board approved engaging the forensic services of Sikich LLP, of Naperville, to examine tow fund expenditures and revenues since it was implemented in 2011. Sikich is the same firm that does the county’s

regular annual audits. The fee for the initial investigation is $7,500 plus out-of-pocket expenses. If fraud is uncovered during the audit, the cost will increase to as much as $300 per hour for the investigators’ services. In their contract with the county, Sikich officials specified that the procedure should be called a forensic “examination,� rather than a forensic “audit.� Sheriff Michael Harn

came under fire in the last several months over expenditures from the tow fund, which included purchasing a new vehicle, flowers for Secretary’s Day, a tent at the county fair, and $4,000 for the department’s Facebook page to be managed. Last January, Board member Richard Petrizzo made a motion for a forensic examination of the tow fund, as well as the sheriff’s credit card expenditures. However, Board Chair-

man Kim Gouker said the matter could not be voted on then, because it was Board n o t Chairman on the Kim Gouker agenda. Petrizzo’s subsequent efforts to have the matter placed on the agenda were unsuccessful. In February, the board diminished the sheriff’s control over the tow fund

by limiting how it could be spent and requiring the approval of expenditures by the county committee that oversees the sheriff’s budget. Gouker called for a forensic examination of the tow fund at the April 15 meeting. At that same meeting, the county board approved a resolution establishing the tow fund. Gouker said that although the board approved implementing administrative tow fees in 2011, the ordinance governing that did not actually establish the tow fund.

The new resolution mandated that tow fund deposits are limited to only administrative fees collected when a vehicle is towed, impounded, or seized during a criminal investigation. It further requires that the tow fund be handled by the Ogle County treasurer’s office, rather than the sheriff, as in the past. Treasurer John Coffman said the tow fund was turned over to his office April 15 when he received a check for $51,932.07 from the sheriff’s department.

Issue delays construction at highway department building

Council OKs annexation of campground property

County won’t have to pay for concrete

Crystal Lake owner’s plans pick up steam

BY VINDE WELLS vwells@shawmedia.com Shaw News Service

OREGON – After several weeks of waiting, Ogle County Engineer Curtis Cook could breathe a sigh of relief Monday afternoon. He finally found out construction can resume on a new storage building at the highway department headquarters at 1989 S. Route 2. Construction on the 90-by-150-foot building has been delayed about a month, Cook said Tuesday, because the concrete in the walls did not meet the strength requirements specified in the contract. In accordance with building standards, the highway department’s contract with Cord Construction, Rockford, requires that concrete must be tested for strength 7 days after it’s poured, and again at 28 days. The concrete in the building’s walls, however, did not meet the requirements at the first test. “It’s in our contract that it needed to meet at the 75 percent level after 7 days,� Cook said. “It wasn’t there.� The 28-day test done Monday, however, produced better results. “Structurally, the concrete met the strength

requirements of the contract,� Cook said. Had the concrete failed the 28-day tests, it would have meant tearing out the walls – and probably the footings and underlying pipes. The tests determined that the concrete was mixed with too high a percentage of water, Cook said. “The contract spelled out the ratio of water,� he said. “They exceeded that.� The concrete came from the Super Mix plant in Belvidere. The company also has a plant near Monroe Center. It was poured by Preferred Concrete, Freeport. Although the concrete is structurally sound, Cook said, it still did not meet the requirements of the contract. He said he has been working with officials from Cord Construction to resolve the issues. “I’m very pleased with the cooperation we got from Cord Construction. From Day 1, they acknowledged the problem and required the sub-contractors to remedy the situation,� he said. “As difficult as the process has been, they made it much better than it could have been.� As result, the county will not have to pay for the concrete in the walls – estimated

at $10,000. The walls will be sealed for extra weather-proofing at no cost to the county, and the 1-year warranty on the concrete has been extended to 5 years. The big question now is whether the building will be completed by the June 30 deadline set by the contract. “I think it will be delayed, but we’re not sure how much yet,� Cook said. The timing is crucial, because work to rebuild and pave the parking lot is slated to begin July 7. Cook said Cord officials will provide an updated construction schedule this week. According to the terms of the contract, the contractor would be subject to damages of $1,025 a day after June 30. Once completed, the $700,000 steel building will be used to store road graders and other heavy equipment, some of which currently sits outside. The parking lot work will cost an estimated $278,000 and will be done by Martin and Co. The money to pay for the building will come from the county’s long range planning fund. Revenues in that fund come from the host fees paid by garbage collection firms to dump refuse in the landfills within the county.

ROCK FALLS – The City Council on Tuesday approved the annexation of property just east of the city limits that is being developed for use as a campground and RV park. Local businessman Brent Porter wants to build the seasonal campground at 600 E. 17th St., just behind Crystal Lake, his swimming and gocart facility. About 17.44 acres for the project will be annexed into the city so the campground can hook up to city water, electric and sewer services. City Building Inspector Mark Searing said he plans to meet with Porter to discuss what’s next with the three-phase project. “The zoning is all ready, and now we’ve got him annexed in, so I will meet with him soon, just to

In the 2 years the city has turned over utilities debts to the free state program, the city’s collections have been up between $90,000 and $100,000. “This program has been so successful in the utilities office, other debts are now being turned over to the program,� Blackert said. The council approved a raise for the city administrator after an executive session. Blackert’s salary will increase from $65,000 to $68,250 for the next fiscal year. The city also approved a $935 bid from James Friedricks of Sterling for the lease of 17 acres

Dixon sophomore finishes fifth at state math competition

M

ichael Gale is better at math than I am. And chances are heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better at it than you are. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get offended at my generalized statement just yet. Gale, a 16-year-old sophomore at Dixon High School, is a member of not only the tennis team, but also the math team. Both Gale and the Dixon sophomore math team finished in the top 10 at the state math competition earlier this month. The school also sent an eight-member freshman-sophomore team to state and had sophomore Devin Attig qualify. Dixon math team coach Jessica Anderson said Galeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth-place finish is the highest individual finish in her 3 years as coach. Gale joined the team

as a freshman, following in the footsteps of his brother, Kurt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided partially because my brother had previously done it, and I have always been good at math,â&#x20AC;? Gale said last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it would be fun to do and good to do.â&#x20AC;? He has qualified for the state competition in each of his first 2 years on the team. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend last year, he said, because of a conflict with the tennis team schedule.

After competing in the conference competition in the winter and the regional competition in March, Gale made his way to the University of Illinois in ChampaignUrbana for the state competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These questions are more difficult than what we do in the general classroom,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said, later adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very much an individually driven competition.â&#x20AC;? What that means is that the students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just refine their math skills in class or by taking the practice tests Anderson gives them. It also involves more than working with Anderson or other math teachers. The students have to work on their math craft on their own time. Initially, Gale thought he finished tied for third. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the results

showed. But a few days later, revised results were released, with Gale in fifth place. There were some tiebreakers that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go in his favor, he said, adding that he was surprised to see the change. But he still seemed happy with how he performed. And despite nearly 3,000 students attending the opening ceremony, he said the pressure wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much greater than it is during a regional competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a math test,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do what you know, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all you can do. You just do your best.â&#x20AC;? Sauk Valley Media reporter Matt Mencarini covers government and happenings in Dixon. He can be reached at mmencarini@saukvalley. com or at 815-625-3600, ext. 5529.

Lab looks to lessen bite of mosquitoes BY STEVE TARTER Journal Star

PEORIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mosquitoes kill 1 million people each year, according to the World Health Organization, making it the deadliest animal in the world. A Peoria scientist at the Ag Lab is at the forefront of a war against this killer. Scientist Alejandro Rooney is engaged in new research efforts to battle dangerous mosquito varieties such as the Asian tiger, yellow fever and floodwater species at the Peoria Ag Lab. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mosquitoes carry some nasty diseases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like dengue fever, chikungunya and West Nile Virus,â&#x20AC;? said Rooney, the research leader of the crop bio protection unit at the U.S. Department of Agriculture lab at 1815 N. University St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the tree hole mosquito that can spread encephalitis,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that mosquitoes also pose a threat to livestock. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to call off summer and pray for the return of the polar vortex. But Rooney and his team have a battle plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to develop environmentally friendly ways to kill mosquitoes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with fungi,â&#x20AC;? he said. Specifically, the fungi would go after mosquito eggs before they hatch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new strategy, the Holy Grail of mosquito control, is to kill them before they hatch,â&#x20AC;? Rooney said. To battle a pest that has stood its ground for so long, one has to know the enemy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and share that information with the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make sure you clean out gutters and places where water can collect. Mosquitoes can also breed in empty containers and bird baths,â&#x20AC;? Rooney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attracted to are the microbes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the foul odors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from standing water. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drawn to it to lay their eggs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;May is traditionally a bad time for mosquitoes,â&#x20AC;? said Phil Nixon, an entomologist with University of Illinois Extension, who identifies the specific culprit out of the 176 species of mosquitoes known to exist in the United States. These mosquitoes hatch in the spring but need water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; warm water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with temperatures in the 70s to bring them out, said Nixon, suggesting that spring showers and

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Dixon School Board interviewed the first of three candidates to lead the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic planning. Rod Wright, of Unicom Arc Inc., presented the basics of his public engagement strategy to the School Board on Wednesday night, emphasizing the need to avoid a top-down approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public is resistant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re skeptical at best, cynical at worst â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to things that come to them top-down, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from the Untied States Congress or a board of directors of a fire protection district,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to get community involvement from the get-go, so when a proposal comes forward, the community feels like it has as much come from them as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come topdown from some kind of board or a blue-ribbon committee.â&#x20AC;?

In April, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic planning task force recommended that the School Board hire a consultant to lead the district through its long-range planning. The two other candidates will be interview this month during public meetings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both held at 6:30 p.m. at the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central office, 1335 Franklin Grove Road. The district will interview Daniel Meyer, of Reach for Excellence Educational Consultants Inc., on Tuesday; and Amy Yurko, of BrainSpaces, on May 29. Public engagement is important, Wright said Wednesday night, because the district will need the public to approve a ballot referendum to finance any major facility improvements or new facilities. If residents are involved in the process from the beginning, he added, they will also be more informed about the issues and project and therefore be more likely to support it.

A yellow fever mosquito, or Aedes aegypti, feeds on pig blood April 23 in a lab at the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research in Peoria. Scientist Alejandro Rooney is doing new research to battle dangerous mosquito varieties such as the Asian tiger, yellow fever and floodwater species at the Peoria Ag Lab. warming temperatures set the stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can almost always count on their arrival just in time for the Memorial Day weekend,â&#x20AC;? he said. Other mosquitoes, some that carry diseases, do better in hot, dry weather. Look for them in midsummer, said Nixon. The insectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is one that indicates how little size matters in the animal kingdom. The mosquito, after all, is a tiny creature that weighs just 2.5 milligrams and lives only 4 to 6 weeks. That might explain why a big team effort is needed to counter perennial pests. After all, teams have been organized before. The first effort to form a national organization of mosquito control workers in the United States came in 1903. The Illinois Assembly set up mosquito abatement districts back in 1927. Rooney said some of the old precautions still make sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to wear protective clothing, such as a long-sleeve shirt at night,â&#x20AC;? he said. DEET is still an effective repellent and citronella candles help but are not 100 percent effective, said Rooney. Meanwhile, traps are set up and being checked twice a week, said Melissa Goetze, environmental health supervisor at the Tazewell County Health Department. The problem is West Nile Virus, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have concerns going into this year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that a nice cold winter will keep the (mosquito) numbers down. Looking at results after the rainy season will tell the story,â&#x20AC;? said Goetze.

Three hurt in crash near Polo BY VINDE WELLS vwells@shawmedia.com Shaw News Service

POLO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three people were injured Monday in a car-semitrailer crash west of Polo. Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn, who was on the scene at the intersection of U.S. 52 and Freeport Road, said both driv-

ers and a passenger in the car were taken to KSB Hospital in Dixon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening,â&#x20AC;? he said. Harn said a car driven by James Morgan, 89, of Rockton, was northbound on Freeport Road, stopped at the stop sign, then drove in front of

the westbound semi, driven by Robert Pottenbaum, 70, of Manchester, Iowa. Traffic at the intersection is controlled by stop signs on Freeport Road. Vehicles on U.S. 52 are not required to stop. The semi, which was loaded with sand, came to rest on its side about 150 to 200 feet west

of the intersection, partially in a field. The crash occurred around 1:30 p.m. Morgan and his wife, Deloras Morgan, 84, Rockton, a front seat passenger in his car, and Pottenbaum were taken to the hospital by Polo and Mount Morris ambulances. All were wearing seat belts,

and the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air bags deployed. The Polo Police Department and Polo Fire Department assisted at the scene. Morgan was charged with failure to stop or yield at an intersection.

Workers hold suspected thief until police arrive Man had stolen gun, faces multiple felony charges STAFF REPORT news@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5501

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Police say a man suspected of retail theft and carrying a stolen gun was restrained by employees Tuesday at Bergnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Northland Mall. In a news release, Sterling police said Justin A. Phillips,

32, became combative with employees and tried to flee. When police arrived, employees had the suspect restrained near the mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rear entrance. Officers took Phillips, who police say is homeless, into custody for retail theft and, while searching him, found he had a stolen firearm. The amount of merchandise stolen, police said, was less than $300. Phillips has been charged with burglary, aggravated battery in a public place, aggravated assault in a public place, armed violence, possession of

a firearm without a requisite FOID card, possession of a firearm ammunition without a requisite FOID card, posJustin A. session of a stoPhillips len firearm, and unlawful use of a weapon. Police say Phillips also has been charged in a burglary that was reported the night before the Bergnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident. Phillips is facing charges of residential burglary and theft, less than $500, with a prior conviction. Those charges are related to a

burglary reported about 7 a.m. Monday in the 600 block of Avenue D in Sterling. Phillips received minor facial injuries during the Bergnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident, police say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From what I understand, the injuries took place while he was attempting to flee from employees before the police arrived on scene,â&#x20AC;? Sgt. Jeff Mohr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had been confrontational with them, and there was a struggle to detain him. We think he also may have fallen outside when detained by management.â&#x20AC;? The gun had not been seen

by store employees throughout the duration of the Bergnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident, Mohr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weapon was concealed,â&#x20AC;? Mohr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Police recovered it when they arrived and detained him.â&#x20AC;? Police said the stolen gun was connected with a previously reported burglary. They refused to comment on whether it was the residential burglary in which Phillips was charged. He remains in Whiteside County Jail in lieu of bond. Bergnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declined to comment on the incident.
