Staff learn about active shooter situations By Chris Johnson Reporter Blanks were fired, books were thrown and police officers were wrestled to the ground during an exercise Dec. 11 at the Polo High School. “Shootings can happen anywhere,� said Rock Valley College police chief Joe Drought. “We need to develop plans on how to respond.� Knowing what to do during an active shooter event can help reduce the loss of life, he said. Faculty, staff, and school officials in the Polo School District participated in the active shooter drill. “I applaud Polo for wanting to do this training,� Drought said. While direct confrontation with a shooter is not preferred, Drought said it may be necessary to prevent further loss of life. “Fighting back is an option to help save lives,� said Drought. “Since Sandy Hook there is more interest in learning how to deal with these situations.� One year ago a lone gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown Conn. and killed 20 students and six adult staff members. Since that tragedy, school districts across the United States have been taking measures to prevent a similar incident from occurring. “During the class, the teachers and faculty will learn practical measures they can take during an active shooter

situation,� said Drought. They include how to barricade a classroom, the best ways to flee the school, and how to fight back if needed. Drought said Rock Valley College has been offering these classes for five years. The course, titled Practical Responses to Active Shooters, required everyone to learn about active shooters and to get hands on demonstrations during the drill. “Our primary objective is to survive,� said Drought. “We are going to be firing blanks today because people ask what a gun sounds like. Blanks are as close as we can simulate to a real shooting without real bullets.� The training instructs participants on how to a defend themselves or the life of another including the use of deadly force, Drought said. “You need to ask yourself ‘what if,’� said Drought. “You need to prepare mentally.� Drought said part of preparing is getting rid of any thoughts that an incident “can not happen here.� “It can happen here, but hopefully we can prevent it,� said Drought. Two days after the class was held in Polo there was another school shooting in Colorado on Dec. 13. “The purpose of this class Ellie Dyer throws a book at a target while Joe Drought and Gene Schmidt watch on.

City approves $18,685 contract

Turn to A8

By Chris Johnson Reporter

Members of the Polo City Council did not think it would be right to bid out a project for a new pool filter building. After a brief discussion Monday night, the board unanimously approved an $18,685 quote from Ebert Engineers to construct the building. “Mark Ebert knows the project,� said pool committee member Mark Scholl. “He is on the committee and is A classroom at Polo High School is barricaded during comfortable with you bidding the active shooter drill Dec. 11.

this out.� “We should accept it,� said alderperson Louise Hall. “It would be a slap in the face to not let him do it,� said alderman Randy Schoon. The quote includes $11,040 for materials and labor to contract a building on the existing foundation. Another $6,480 in materials and labor will finish the interior with insulation, sheeting, and moldings. An aluminum floor door will add $1,265 to the project. In other business the board approved a committee to

look into ordinances and make suggestions on how to improve them. This came up mayor Doug Knapp said, because an ordinance is on the books that prevents homes with 60 percent or more damage from being rebuilt on a parcel with less than 10,000 feet. “We are currently changing the ordinance to accommodate this,� said Knapp. He said a committee should be formed to look into all the building ordinances in Polo. Knapp recommended

having local contractors, bankers, and level-headed minds on the committee. His recommendation for the committee was to have Bryon Bowers, Karen Bumsted, Jim Busser, Wade Corbitt, and Mark Ebert on the committee. This committee would have different duties that the zoning board of appeals. “I think it is a good idea,� said Polo resident Richard Jacks. “Some lots do not conform and we need to help Turn to A2

County board approves $99,500 home purchase By Vinde Wells Editor Ogle County will soon own another piece of property near its judicial center. The county board voted 20-4 Tuesday to authorize board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, to sign documents to purchase the house at 102 S. Fifth St., Oregon, for $99,500, and to enter into a three-year lease with the current occupant. The purchase of the house has been a long time in the making. “It’s a piece of property we’ve looked at ever since we built the judicial center,� Gouker said.

The judicial center, which is next door to the house to the south, was completed in 2005. The county board purchased the property north of the house, where Jackass BBQ is located at 501 W. Washington St. (Ill. 64), last June from John Spoor for $150,000. The county leases that property to restaurant owner Andy Riegel. The board will purchase the house from Scott and Barb Spoor, and lease it to Robert Lowe, who currently has a law practice there. Lowe has a contract to buy the house from the Spoors for $89,500 but is willing

to forego the purchase if he can rent it from the county, Gouker said. Lowe will pay the county $300 a month rent for the property, pay the real estate taxes, and take care of maintenance, Gouker said. Gouker said an appraiser hired by the county valued the house at $89,500. Board member Lyle Hopkins, Polo, voiced his opposition to the purchase price. “If it was appraised at $89,500, I don’t think we should offer one penny Emily Sherrick, Polo, loads up a box of canned goods for the Polo Lifeline Food Pantry more,� he said.

Meyer said comments in article were not accurate By Vinde Wells Editor

An Ogle County Board member said Tuesday that his comments were not accurately portrayed in an article that appeared Dec. 14 in Sauk Valley Weekend. Lee Meyers, Byron, was among several county board members who were interviewed last week for an article about credit card expenditures made by Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn. The article reported: “Lee Meyers, a member of

Fun Projects

the county board and county Security Committee, said he had asked Harn about individual purchases in the past, most of the time for bigger charges, he said, but wasn’t aware of the lunch training.� The article appears on A7 in this edition. Meyers told fellow board members Tuesday night that his comments were not accurately represented in the article. “I’ve asked him [Harn] about some of the charges, but I didn’t say ‘bigger charges,’� Meyers said after the meeting.

“They didn’t publish what I said; they took a piece of what I said. I feel it was taken out of context.� Meyers, a member of the Security Committee which oversees the sheriff’s department, said that when he has asked Harn about expenditures, the sheriff always knows where the money was spent and what was purchased. Sauk Valley Media publishes Ogle County Newspapers in addition to the Dixon Telegraph, Sterling/Rock Falls Gazette, saukvalley.com and oglecountynews.com.

Original asking price for property was $129,000

Petrizzo, Davis Junction, “If we were buying it just for a house I would agree with you,� he said. “It’s a vital piece of property for the further expansion of the judicial center.� Gouker said the Spoors were originally asking $129,000 for the house. He said the $300 rent Lowe will pay over the next three years will make up the $10,000 difference between the appraisal and the purchase price. Hopkins cast a no vote, along with board members Skip Kenney, Rochelle, Lee Meyers, Byron, and Pat Saunders, Polo.

Obendorf wonders about 1890s home decorations By Betty Obendorf Curator Polo Historical Society This past weekend it was nice to get out to a Christmas party at the McGrath Home and as we pulled up in front I wondered how it might have been 100 years ago. It was built in 1896 and at that time guests would have arrived on a winter evening by horse and sleigh. That might have been a tad cool if you had a bit of a distance to travel. We were greeted out by the curb so the ladies could be assisted up the sidewalk and into the house. I welcomed a couple of arms with the weather the

Pine Creek News By Karen Merlak We are getting plenty of snow, ice, and cold even before the winter season begins. Now is a great time to warm ourselves with the love shared between family and friends. Not only are we thankful for those loved ones that God has brought into our lives, but we are thankful for each moment we are together. This morning in church, we were greeted by Larry and Judy Riffle. Our organist, Jean Cunningham, and pianist, Jane Hamilton prepared a beautiful prelude for the start of our service. We are thankful that they share their musical talents with us each week. Tom and Jane Hamilton lit the third candle in our advent wreath. The anticipation is growing with each passing day. Jane also led the children’s message this morning. Our church is preparing for our Christmas Eve program. All are welcome to attend the program starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 24 at Pine Creek Christian Church. On Saturday morning, the women of the church met at the home of Sheryl Hopkins for the monthly breakfast gathering and gift exchange. Those attending the breakfast were Vicki Hay, Martha

Weather Forecast Temperatures still colder than normal until New Year’s Day. Record low (-10 degrees F) on Dec. 12. Moisture about normal, but all snow or freezing rain.

way it was on that particular evening. After falling last winter, I am somewhat leery of ice this year so I am cautious. I am wondering if they would have had some kind of gas lights lighting the way to the house and even on the porch as guests arrived. For our party the porches were brightly lighted with attractive electric porch lights and we welcomed the lights so we could see. As we stepped inside our wraps were graciously taken to upstairs bedrooms and the same custom would have been many years ago also. My eyes wandered to fresh greens and candles a glow as I glanced around.

This would have been the same setting years ago and there is something about fresh evergreen and the delightful aroma it gives. I was drawn right away to the Christmas tree and it was enormous and very simply done. It was real, very large around, and my first thought was, I wonder how many mouse traps it took to wedge that into the stand. Those were the years when we had real trees and they never went into the stands easily. If they did they soon tipped over or were knocked over by some exuberant child. One year we even used mouse traps to complete the job of getting it to stay in the

stand. Artificial trees took care of that problem and we welcomed them. Also the tree was not loaded with everything but was very lovely without garland, tinsel, or 1,000 Christmas balls. The tree was lovely as one just enjoyed the greenery. I will try that next year. This year I chickened out and left the big one in the box and went with the smaller one. Kenneth does not like it and neither do I. Of course, maybe the real tree version is what made it grand looking. I will find out next year. All the floors in the older homes were wood with area rugs. In those early days the

rugs were rolled up and the dancing began. This is where the young people entertained their friends and didn’t they always have dancing with someone playing the piano. They were under the watchful eyes of the adults. I was waiting for the dancing to begin but instead we visited quietly and never once kicked up our heels. With my sciatica I doubt I would have kicked too highly as the evening progressed. Betty Ebert and her family prepared the food and I doubt that Betty did it on an old cook stove loaded with wood like years before. How ever she did it, it was superb and the presentation great. We all enjoyed

wonderful table conversation that would have been enjoyed over 100 years ago. That will remain the same down through the years. Our host and hostess, Jim and Gina Cole are enjoying the house the same as John and Ansibel McGrath did in 1896 when the house was built. We all remember Annabel (died 1992), Aileen (died 1991), and Catherine McGrath Phalen (died 1991), as gracious hostesses for many Christmas parties in the community.

Johannssen, Sandra Ford, Sue Downs, Jane Hamilton, and Deb Ohlwine. After breakfast, the ladies exchanged a grab bag of gifts. The group enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, beautiful decorations, and the warmth of sisterly fellowship. On Saturday evening, I attended the annual PEO Christmas party at the beautiful home of Jim and Gina Cole. Their home has special significance for many of our members as the PEO sisters met there with the McGrath sisters. There were over forty guests for the dinner and program. Everyone marveled at the exquisite decorations. Those visiting from Pine Creek were Don and Vicki Hay, Bill and Betty Hare, Maggie Henning, Richard and Beverly Coffman, and John and Lisa Coffman. Lyle and Sheryl have returned from a short getaway to Branson with friends. They went to several shows and took in the many sights and sounds of the season. Don and Vicki Hay also returned recently from a trip to Tennessee to see their growing grandchildren. Their son, Mack Hay, and his wife, Shea, appreciate the loving arms of grandparents, especially with two sweet babies to take care of. On Tuesday evening, Clint attended the drama club Christmas party. The students in drama club bring food and a small gift to exchange with the other students. Several years ago, a student brought a ceramic white elephant for the exchange.

It is now a tradition that the white elephant makes a return to be passed on to another student. It has now been passed on through all three of our children. Our kids love traditions. I do, too. One of the sillier traditions in our family includes hanging a very large, green-

suited Santa ornament on the tree. While it might not make sense to anyone else, it makes our family smile when we see that Santa on the tree. One of my favorite traditions is making cookies. My mom made Russian teacakes for many years. When I was a child, my job was to roll the cookies in

red and green sugar before baking. That is a job I passed on to our kids. Traditions help keep wonderful memories with us. As we continue the tradition of sharing the story of Jesus’ birth, we remember the amazing gift that was sent to all of us. This year will be a little harder for all of us.

Our family has changed drastically and so must our traditions. However, the tradition of remembering the birth of Jesus will continue. I hope to see you next Sunday as we continue to worship during the Advent season.

The deadline for dropping off toys for Earth Angels’ annual holiday toy collection is Friday, Dec. 20. Earth Angels, headed by Linda Straith, Forreston, collects toys and donations each year for Christmas gifts for needy families in Ogle County. The goal is to reach families that have “fallen through the system” and are unable to receive any kind of assistance. The toys will also go to the children of servicemen and women who are on active duty. Drop sites for donation are Sterling Federal Bank, Mt. Morris; Kable News, Mt. Morris; Mt. Morris Senior Center; Mt. Morris Moose Family Center; Rock River Center, Oregon; Bemis Ford, Oregon; Creative Designs, Oregon; Dollar General, Oregon; St. Brides Episcopal Church, Oregon; St. Paul

Lutheran Church, Oregon; State Farm Insurance, Oregon; Forreston Public Library; Forreston State Bank, Forreston; Bertolet Memorial Library, Leaf River; Citgo, Leaf River; Blackhawk Credit Union, Polo; Polo Public Library, Polo; and Sawicki Motors, Rochelle. At the drop sites, pick an “angel” to buy gifts for. Purchase the gift, attach the angel’s tag, and return the gift to the drop site by Friday, Dec. 20 or call Straith at 815291-7757 for pick up. Donations of money can be mailed to Earth Angel, P.O. Box 188, Forreston IL 61030, or Earth Angel Fund, c/o Forreston State Bank, 200 Main St., P.O. Box 278, Forreston IL 61030, or via Pay Pal to Earth Angels Wanted-Fundraiser. Anyone who knows of a family who really needs

an Earth Angel, even if it’s your own family, is asked to submit the name and address. All the information is kept confidential. What is most important is gender and ages so gifts can be purchased and distributed accordingly. Volunteers can earn their Earth Angel wings by helping wrap, pick up, or deliver gifts when the time comes. In addition, anyone wishing to send a letter or a card to a serviceman or woman, can drop off his or her wishes in Granny’s Mail Bag, located at every dropsite. The deadline for letters and cards is Dec. 1. Earth Angel headquarters will once again be at the Mt. Morris Seniors Center. For more information or to volunteers call Granny (aka Straith) at 815-291-7757 or visit www.earth.angels. oglecounty@hotmail,com.

The American Red Cross urges residents to take extra precautions with cooking and decorating around the holidays. “Cooking is the leading cause of home fires, and as people are cooking, entertaining, and stringing lights this holiday season, we’re urging that they take

safety measures to ensure that their homes and loved ones are safe from the threat of fire,” said Martha Carlos, Chief Communications Officer of the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago. Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving are the top three days for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to a disaster on average every eight minutes, and the vast majority of them are home fires. The Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can follow to prevent home fires around the holidays: Holiday Entertaining Test smoke alarms. Check food regularly while cooking and remain in the home while cooking. Use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Enforce a “kid-free zone” in the cooking area and make children stay at least three feet away from the stove. Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stove, oven or any appliance in the kitchen that generates heat. Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup. Purchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. Contact the local fire department to receive training on the proper use of extinguishers. Holiday Decorating Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. Keep children, pets and decorations away from lit candles. Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. Replace any string of lights

with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. Some strings of lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. Keep decorations away from windows and doors. People should also download the free American Red Cross First Aid app, which provides instant access to information on handling the most common first aid emergencies. The apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross. org/mobileapps. People can test their knowledge on how to prevent home fires by taking the Fire Safety Quiz, and can learn more about fire prevention by visiting redcross.org. About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a notfor-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit redcross.org

Sheriff’s Department credit card spending questioned By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media During a countywide review of departmental credit card policies this year, some spending on credit cards of the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department was questioned – and then stopped. That spending included meals at local restaurants, in addition to uniform and equipment purchases. Sheriff Michael Harn and Ogle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker described the meals as meetings, although they were listed as “training” for accounting purposes. For 2011 and 2012, and the first few months of this year, those restaurant meals cost county taxpayers more than $7,500 – about $5,300 of it at Breakers Saloon and Eatery, which is a block from the jail. During an interview with Sauk Valley Media this week, both Harn and Gouker defended the lunch training as justified spending. “The only time I can get together [with staff] is before noon, and then it led into the noon hour,” Harn said. “Well, I can’t consciously keep people over their lunch hour because when they go to have lunch, they’re on my time.” When those meetings, which would begin at the Sheriff’s Department, carried over into lunchtime, they often moved to a local restaurant, Harn said. In 2011, the Sheriff’s Department charged more than $600 at restaurants, some local and others outside the county, according to documents obtained by Sauk Valley Media through a Freedom of Information Act request. In 2012, that spending increased to more than $4,100, and in 2013 the department spent $2,800 – until the practice stopped this past spring. “The sheriff and I had a discussion about it,” Gouker said. “I understand why he was using it. It was a policy that we allowed. ... We had some discussions about it, and I said, ‘Well Mike, maybe you should just monitor it a little bit and maybe not do it quite as much.’ And he has.” From January through May 2013, the Sheriff’s

Michael Harn

Department charged nearly $2,800 at restaurants on its credit cards. From June through October, after Gouker and Harn discussed the restaurant spending, only $28 was charged, for one meal at Breakers Saloon & Eatery in Oregon, where the majority of the lunch trainings had occurred. “I haven’t changed my policy,” Harn said. “I still could do that. I chose, after Mr. Gouker and all the things that happened in Dixon and all those things, like, ‘OK, I don’t need this.’” Harn continues to have those same training discussions with his staff, he said, but now more of them happen during phone calls. “In a public office, there are things that are done that are wrong, and there are things that are done that could be perceived as being wrong,” Gouker said. He said the meals could be perceived as wrong, but that there was nothing actually wrong about them.

Spending comes to light In March, Ogle County Board members John O’Brien and Dick Petrizzo began having discussions with county departments that had and were using credit cards. At the time, the county didn’t have a credit card policy, and O’Brien said the county auditors had recommended that one be put together. “When you draft a policy, it has overall applications,” Petrizzo said. “You’re not looking at individual statements.” But after they spoke with Harn and learned about the lunch training, Petrizzo said,

Below are several other charges on the sheriff’s credit cards, along with the sheriff’s explanation. Lucky Brand Jeans, $160.74, July 15, 2012, in Aurora: – On most days, Harn doesn’t wear the full uniform, he said, and instead wears jeans and a polo shirt. This charge was for three or four pairs of Lucky Brand jeans that were on sale, he said. Under Armour, $259.70, July 15, 2012, in Aurora: – The purchase was for the polo shirts Harn wears, he said, which also are embroidered with the department’s name on a sleeve. Hennepin Marine, $326.29, March 2, 2012, in Hennepin: – The department no longer has a boat it can use, Harn said, so when an incident requires one, the department will ask a nearby fire department or resident to assist. In those cases, the Sheriff’s Department provides oil or gas to replenish what was used, Harn said. Men’s Wearhouse, $1,193.28, $1,106 and $129.87, Oct. 22 and 23, 2012, in Rockford: – These purchases were for suits, they took the issue to Gouker. “Both O’Brien and I were new, and we were learning stuff about the board and operations,” Petrizzo said. “And when we came across that [lunch spending], we were curious about that. The sheriff defended it by saying that it’s a way [they trained people over lunch]. We raised questions about it and whether it was right or wrong.” Petrizzo said he was happy that, for the most part, the lunch training had stopped, adding that he didn’t condone the practice. Harn took office in December 2010, but it wasn’t until Petrizzo and O’Brien’s general discussion about all department credit card spending in early 2013 that Harn made the decision, after speaking with Gouker, to change that practice.

County Security Committee

Dan Janes is an Ogle County Board member and chairman of the County Security Committee, which oversees the Sheriff’s Department and the Ogle County coroner. Each month, his committee reviews each department’s bills and receives an update. Janes said he doesn’t “sit down and go through every [credit card] charge in every

shirts, ties, pants and shoes for Harn and Michael Schabacker, a detective who’s required to be in a suit at work, Harn said. OnStar, $249, $28.90, $28.90, $28.90 and $11.40, charges in 2011 and 2013: – Harn had an OnStar subscription in his Sheriff’s Department vehicle for navigation purposes, he said, and there were other charges for hands-free dialing minutes in case he needed them in an emergency, he said. Harley-Davidson, $384.83, $154.04 and $63.94, charges in April, July and October 2011, in Peoria and Sauk City, Wis.: – Harn purchased clothing and gear from two Harley-Davidson retailers for when the department had a Harley-Davidson motorcycle it used for parades, he said. When the lease ended, it wasn’t renewed, Harn said, but the clothing still is at the department as Sheriff’s Department property. SiriusXM Radio, $213.51, $172.83 and $28.28 in April 2011 and 2012: – Harn had a 1-year subscription to Sirius radio for his depart-

month,” and he doesn’t get too involved with the finances as long as the department is within its budget, which the Sheriff’s Department has been. Also on the County Security Committee are Rich Gronewold and Greg Sparrow, who also sit on the county’s Finance, Revenue and Insurance Committee. Janes said he assumed they were looking at details of credit card statements. “I’m just probably somewhat assuming that they’re looking at those more closely,” he said. Sparrow doesn’t see the monthly credit card statements, he said, but as the committee chairman, Janes might. If he had been aware of the lunch training, Sparrow said, he might have asked for more detail, but might also defer to Harn as an elected official. “I would like to hear in more details from him why he feels that way,” Sparrow said. “I’m not saying I disagree with him.” Gronewold said he had seen some of the spending and had even questioned other departments, but not every department and not for every charge. He wasn’t aware of the

ment vehicle. When it automatically renewed, he had it canceled and obtained a refund, he said. Hooters, $66.19, March 4, 2012, in Springfield: – The restaurant was across the street from his hotel in Springfield where he attended a conference, Harn said. He said he was there with other law enforcement personnel. LensCrafters, $514.79, July 15, 2012, in Rockford: – A department employee’s prescription glasses were stolen, Harn said. The employee paid for the frames, and the department paid for the lenses. The employee was working at the time of the theft, Harn said. iTunes, several charges, including $31.86 and $5.30 in 2012: – These charges were for navigation and work-related apps, Harn said, and weren’t games or other apps. Frank’s Car Wash in Freeport – There are several charges for Frank’s Car Wash, which, Harn said, are for his department vehicle. He has had it washed in Freeport because he lives in Forreston and it’s close, he said. Freeport is in Stephenson County.

extent of lunch training, Gronewold said, but he didn’t think such local training several times a week would be necessary. “I wouldn’t think that would be appropriate,” he said. “I wouldn’t see why he would have to buy lunch for those people.” Bobbie Colbert, another member of the County Board and the County Security Committee, said she wasn’t aware of the lunch training and doesn’t think it would be appropriate. Colbert also said she didn’t think the lunch training had been discussed or explained during the committee meetings, but she had heard rumors about it the past week or so. “I’m sure [the committee] would be questioning, ‘Hey, what’s going on at Breakers?’” she said, adding that she would be curious about the time of the charges. Harn has had conversations with County Security Committee members about his policies and procedures, he said, but many other County Board members don’t seek him out to learn what’s going on in his department. “A lot of people on the board don’t call and don’t ask and don’t know,” Harn said.

“It’s kind of hard to share all the information with people and they don’t care.” The Sheriff’s Department’s training budget in 2013 was $9,615, and it’s set at $7,615 for 2014. In 2011, Harn’s first year as sheriff, the training budget was set by his predecessor, Greg Beitel, at $44,560. In 2012, the training budget had been cut to $11,615. Jerry Brooks, a member of the Ogle County Board and County Security Committee, said Harn had done a good job with the reduced budget. Brooks said he was aware of the lunch training and didn’t have a problem with it. “I, overall, I have never seen anything that I felt was inappropriate,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean I’ve seen everything.” Lee Meyers, a member of the County Board and County Security Committee, said he had asked Harn about individual purchases in the past, most of the time for bigger charges, he said, but wasn’t aware of the lunch training. Patricia Nordman, a member of the County Board and County Security Committee, didn’t immediately return a call for comment last week.

Administrative Tow Fund is not on county’s budget By Matt Mencarini Sauk Valley Media Since late 2011, the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department has used, at the sheriff’s discretion, a fund not reported in the county’s budget to pay a wide range of expenses. Similar to other county funds, the Administrative Tow Fund has been reviewed – and not found to be inappropriate – by the county’s auditors, Ogle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker said. During an interview with Sauk Valley Media last week, Gouker, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn and Bob Coine, identified as the sheriff’s consultant for

public relations, defended the fund’s purpose, uses and location off the budget. They also said the fund is used to offset a reduced budget for the Sheriff’s Department. The tow fund, which was established by a county ordinance on Oct. 19, 2011, allows the county to collect a $350 administrative fee to tow vehicles, like those involved with a DUI arrest. According to the ordinance, money from the fund can “be used at the discretion of the sheriff, and may be used for law enforcement-related activities including the purchase or maintenance of police vehicles, equipment, or training.” The tow fund is reviewed

by the auditors, Gouker said, but doesn’t appear on the county’s budget, similar to the Sheriff’s Department’s commissary fund. “We have a lot of funds that are like that,” Gouker said, “in other departments under other elected officials.” Gouker wants those funds to be given more oversight and be placed in the budget, he said. Asked why they aren’t already, he said that’s been the county’s policy. “You want to know the honest truth? Because it’s never been done before, which I don’t agree with,” Gouker said. “And because it had never been done before is exactly why I’m looking at doing it differently.” Nearly 30 funds aren’t listed in the county’s budget – 28 of them listed in the “additional fund appropriations” section. They total about $3.2 million. The tow fund and commissary fund, however, don’t appear by name. Gouker said the “police vehicle fund” is likely the tow fund. “We’re just starting our new audit,” Gouker said. “[The tow fund] will be audited. It was audited last year. The sheriff and I have talked about this way before this, about working it, bringing into a different kind of oversight. He’s agreed to that. ... I’ve reviewed it. And the auditors have reviewed it. There’s nothing that is being done in here that hasn’t been reviewed.” Gouker has wanted to move the unreported funds to

Below are some selected expenses paid for from the Administrative Tow Fund: Thomas DodgeChrysler-Jeep of Highland, $22,947, invoice dated Jan. 2, 2013: – The invoice is for the purchase of a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500, from a dealership based in Highland, Ind. Merlin’s Greenhouse & Flowers, $170, June 11, 2013: – Harn purchased four flowers for Secretaries Day, he said.

RDJ Specialties Inc., $5,437.59, June 18, 2013, company based in Memphis: – Harn purchased 1,500 “foldable frisbees,” 1,500 plastic bags and 1,000 coloring books to hand out at the county fair and during other events. George Enstrom, $1,600, Aug. 13, 2012: – Enstrom, a lawyer, requested and paid for an out-of-state prisoner to be transported to Ogle County to testify in a civil lawsuit, Harn said. The money

was refunded when his department no longer needed to make the transport, the sheriff said.. Ogle County Fair Association, $700, Aug. 20, 2013: – Harn paid for a tent at the Ogle County Fair, which, he said, he uses for public outreach and education. Heartland Studios, $4,000, Aug. 29, 2013: – Harn paid Bob Coine to run the Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook page.

the budget for several years, he said, but will work to get the reporting done during 2014 and have them listed on the 2015 budget. That change is done within the county, he said. Documents related to spending from the Administrative Tow Fund were obtained by Sauk Valley Media through a Freedom of Information Act request. Among the checks written from the fund is a $4,000 check made out to “Heartland Studios” for website design and consulting. Coine, the man behind Heartland Studios, was present for the interview with Sauk Valley Media and described his relationship with Harn as a consultant for public relations, the same description Harn confirmed a day later. Coine received the check, dated Aug. 29, 2013, to run the Sheriff’s Department’s

Facebook page, Harn said. That check is the only payment Coine has received from the Sheriff’s Department, Harn said, and he doesn’t have a county computer or access to non-public documents, information or records. Coine, however, was using Harn’s computer before the interview with Sauk Valley Media last week, which was the only time he has used a county computer, Harn said. The sheriff explained that Coine was using it to remove some comments from the department’s Facebook page immediately, rather than waiting until later. Coine, who was recommended to Harn by another area sheriff, is one of several people Harn said he looks to for advice on running the department or handling aspects of the job. Other checks written from the tow fund were for a Rochelle Little League

sponsorship; Sheriff’s Department-branded materials to hand out to children, which include the department’s name, logo and Harn’s name; a tent at the Ogle County Fair; weapons and ammunition; and auto body work on department vehicles. Harn took office as sheriff in December 2010. In 2011, his first year in office, the Sheriff’s Department budget was set at $4 million. The budget was reduced to $3.4 million in 2012 and increased slightly for the 2013 fiscal year to $3.5 million, where it remains for 2014. The tow fund, Harn and Gouker said, is used to offset that reduction and the reduced budget for certain line items. Instead of filing insurance claims after a department vehicle hits a deer, Harn has, at times, used money from the tow fund for repairs, he said.

Active Shooting Drill offered a chance to practice From A1 The responses available in a school include evacuation, lock down, prepare to fight back, and how to respond when the police arrive on the scene, Drought said. “Can you lock the door?� said Drought. “Think about it. You can then barricade the door with heavy desks from the classroom. What do you do if a shooter enters the classroom?� Many objects in the classroom can be used as projectiles to throw at a gunman to try and distract them to enable people to evacuate the room, or disarm the shooter. The faculty were provided wrapped books that they could throw at a target. At first the staff in one classroom was timid at wanting to throw a book, but after the first book was thrown everyone in the classroom was ready to take their turn. They also had the opportunity to swing a computer keyboard at the target. After these two drills, Polo Police Sergeant Sean Knight volunteered to be a practice gunman the staff could wrestle to the ground. Drought and Knight demonstrated in slow motion one technique that can be used to bring a gunman to the ground and secure the weapon. The gun should not be

picked up but secured by having someone stand over it with their hands raised in the air. Drought said that when police arrive in the classroom, one person should be designated to quickly tell the officer who the shooter is and where the weapon is. The staff was enjoying the demonstrations, but realized they were learning about a serious subject. School Board President Gene Schmidt took part in the drill. “We learned a lot but it raises questions as we move forward,� said Schmidt. “This is just the beginning in a process.� As a district, safety has been improved. All the buildings have been secured and visitors need to be buzzed into the building. “There is more to do,� he said. “Drills let everyone practice. What does a gun shot sound like? It was an eye opening experience.� Schmidt said the next safety meeting in the district should be interesting when the faculty bring their questions from the drill to the table. “I am not naive enough to say it can’t happen in Polo,� said Schmidt. “Having people participate in the drill was interesting. I never thought about holding the gun to have it pointed at the floor.� Having the police department participate in

the drill demonstrated the continuing relationship between the school and police department. “We are lucky to have the police department involved in our schools,� said Schmidt. “I felt this was a program

everyone needs to do.� Board member Kellie O’Leary Call also participated in the drill. The Polo and Milledgeville Police Departments participated in the drill. “Hopefully it never

happens but the school now has some ideas of what to do,� said Polo Police Chief Dennis Christen. “It was good training and well received.� Oregon School District held similar drills at all three schools earlier this fall.

Those drills were also coordinated through the Rock Valley College Police Department. Forrestville Valley School District will hold a drill Jan. 2 in cooperation with the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department.

Christmas events planned Public is invited to Freedom Lutheran Church

The folks at Freedom Lutheran are working hard to make sure that Christmas gets its full due. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas is not over after the 25th,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff Schlesinger, Freedomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pastor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Twelve Days of Christmasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was written because the liturgical season of Christmas is 12 days long. It begins on Dec. 25 but does not end until Epiphany on Jan. 6.â&#x20AC;?

Jan. 5. On Christmas Eve, the congregation, which worships on the campus of Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center (LOMC) a mile south of Oregon, will gather at 10 p.m. for a traditional candlelight service. Luminaries will guide worshippers through the woods to the worship space where a warm fire will greet them. The service will be followed by a time of fellowship including wassail and hot cider. On Dec. 29, the first Sunday of Christmas, Freedom will continue its celebration with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;brunch serviceâ&#x20AC;? at which they will worship while they eat. The brunch, hosted by Schlesinger and his family, will include French toast bake, sausage, and juice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hosted these

brunches at many of the congregations weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at,â&#x20AC;? said Schlesingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Theresa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospitality is a big part of being Christian. It seems natural to merge a meal and worship.â&#x20AC;? The second Sunday of Christmas, Jan. 5, Freedom will offer a final time to sing Christmas songs as it celebrates with a service of lessons and carols. Freedom Lutheran worships on Sunday mornings at 9:45 at LOMC. Freedom also maintains the Freedom Lutheran Welcome Center in downtown Oregon at 111 S.

Polo Pioneers had a party By Ty Newcomer Club Reporter The Polo Pioneers held their annual Christmas party on Dec. 9. It was a night of fun filled activities. In attendance were Mady Russell, Olivia Russell, Ty Newcomer, Rebbakah Zeigler, Gage Zeigler, Cole Zeigler, Makenzie Luther, Carter Gremba,

Eli Baumann, and Brianna Kuhn. The members played a game where two teams used three rolls of toilet paper each to wrap a human snowman. The members then enjoyed eating pizza, cookies, cake, brownies, and plenty of candy. They also enjoyed a gift exchange with all the

members. On a more serious note, the members assembled 250 goody bags which will be delivered to 10 Council of Churches for food baskets. They also discussed their annual pizza and cookie dough fund raiser. Their next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Church of the Brethren in Polo.

Candlelight Service will be held Sunday, Dec. 22 The Evangelical Free Church of Mt. Morris will host its annual Candlelight Service on Sunday evening, Dec. 22 at 6 p.m. The program will feature a variety of musical expressions.

Dear Editor, Serenity Hospice and Home has been the fortunate recipient of several United Way â&#x20AC;&#x153;Days of Caringâ&#x20AC;? over the past couple of years. Projects are posted on the United Way volunteer website, and willing volunteers sign up to provide assistance to area non profits. Some area organizations even offer their employees an opportunity to volunteer on a project during a work day in support of United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day of Caring program. On Dec. 4, Watt Publishing sent a team of volunteers to help decorate the Serenity Home for Christmas. In fact, it has become a tradition for a team from Watt Publishing to help brighten the days of patients and families staying or visiting the Serenity Home year after year. Volunteers decorated nine unique Christmas trees and placed holiday decorations throughout the facility. Each year staff looks forward to working with the good-natured and compassionate team from Watts. Additionally, volunteers, staff, patients, and visitors were entertained by lovely guitar and vocals by hospice volunteer, Tita Roach. Serenity Hospice and Home extends a warm thank

Opening round win for Marcos The Polo Marcos picked up an easy win to open the Forreston Holiday Tournament Saturday afternoon. Polo earned a 58-45 win over Lena-Winslow to earn a date with Oregon in the second round. The Marcos outscored LeWin 12-3 in the opening quarter. Scoring for the Marcos was spread out with everyone on the team contributing to the win. Zach Quaco led the team in scoring with 16 points which

included the Marcos only 3-pointer in the game. He was 3 of 4 from the line. AJ Dollmeyer was just behind Quaco with 14 points of his own. He was 2 or 5 from the line. Brian Cavanaugh was a perfect 4 of 4 from the line on his way to adding 8 points to the score and his brother Brad added another 6 points to the score. Wyatt Patterson put up 6 points while Sawyer Frano, Austin Webb, Matthew Handel, and Max Simmons each added 2 points.

Forreston stopped at home on Dec. 14 The Forreston Cardinals did not start their Forreston Holiday Tournament the way they envisioned. The Cardinals squared up with River Ridge Saturday afternoon in the opening round but quickly learned River Ridge was a tough opponent. Forreston was outscored 17-9 in the first quarter on the way to a 50-41 Cardinal loss.

The leading scorer for the Cardinals was Robert DeVries with 15 points on 6 shots from the floor and a trio of free throws. Wyatt Kerchner had 7 points, Kaleb Reining and Nathan Schneiderman each added 6 points to the score. Adding four points was Jacob Cunningham and Ethan Groom finished the night with 3 points.

Perimeter shots help Polo earn win By Ty Reynolds Sauk Valley Media When the Polo Marcos are hitting their perimeter shots, there’s not a lot any defense can do to stop their offense. Factor in a strong transition game and 6-foot-7 senior AJ Dollmeyer in the post, and the Marcos have numerous weapons at their disposal. Polo hit eight of its 17 3-pointers Monday night against Oregon, and outscored the Hawks 18-7 on the fast break en route to a 7847 victory in the quarterfinals of the Forreston Holiday

Tournament. “When teams actually try to guard AJ in the middle, that really makes them draw in their defense,” Polo senior guard Brian Cavanaugh said. “That leaves the rest of us wide open to take outside shots, make good cuts, and drive the lane.” Cavanaugh was responsible for all three of those things at one point or another against Oregon (3-6). He missed just two of his 11 shots, and hit four runners off the wing in a span of 3:20 to open the second half and put the game away for the Marcos.

After an early blitz gave Polo (8-0) a 22-9 lead with 2:49 left in the first quarter, the Hawks whittled away at the deficit. But when Oregon got to within 26-23 early in the second on Trevor Otten’s coast-to-coast three-point play, the Marcos answered in the form of a 9-0 run. Matt Murray’s 3 with 8 seconds left looked to get Oregon into halftime on a high note, but Austin Webb’s half-court buzzer-beater hit nothing but net to extend the lead to 44-30 at the break. “They shot the ball really well, and we couldn’t stop

the ball in transition,” Oregon coach Quinn Virgil said of the Marcos. “I was happy with the way we played in the first half, but I thought that half-court shot was a big momentum swing. “We’d whittled away to within shouting distance, then he drills that shot, and it took away what I thought would be a good chance to make a surge to start the second half.” Instead, Cavanaugh and Co. were the ones making the surge. Dollmeyer (12 points, 10 rebounds, 3 blocks) scored Turn to B2

Wrestlers defeated by EP 45-27 The Polo-Forreston wrestling team fell to Erie-Prophetstown 45-27 in competition last week. In the 106 weight match Tim Cholke was defeated by fall in 30 seconds by Logan Voss. Colton Griffin was defeated by fall in 3:44 during the 120 point match. Jesse Ditzler earned a win for

Polo in the 126 pound match with a 9-6 decision. Paul Smith was defeated by fall in 5:35 in the 132 pound match. Fabian Calderon lost in 2:55 in the 138 pound match. Tristen Aguilar was defeated by fall in 5:31 in the 145 pound match.

Jake Hanlon was defeated by fall in 1:10 during the 152 pound match. Picking up a win by a 5-1 decision in the 160 pound match was Ethan Cain. Kevin Cheeseman was defeated by fall in 1:36 in the 170 pound match. Jeff Kimpel lost by a narrow

15-13 decision in the 182 pound match. Jacob Cane picked up a 10-8 decision in the 195 pound match. Miguel Dominquez won by forfeit. In the 285 pound match Joan Dominguez picked up a win in 40 seconds.

Remember to recycle your tree after Christmas By Reita Nicholson Administrative Assistant Ogle County Solid Waste Management The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department encourages Ogle County residents to recycle their Christmas trees once this holiday season has passed. Christmas trees can be dropped off through Sunday, Jan. 19 at the following locations: Byron â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunshine Park, Ill. 2 and S. Peru St.,

Forreston â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 407 N. Locust St. by the Waste Water Treatment Plant. Leaf River â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 208 Railroad St. by the Sewage Treatment Plant. Monroe Center â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 309 Pacific St. (Lichtyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landscaping). Oregon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hill Street at Oregon Park District maintenance yard located behind Brian Bemis Motors. Polo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 410 N. Prairie St., west of storage building. Rochelle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Atwood Park, 10th Avenue and 20th Street,

behind the band shell. On Saturday, Jan. 11, local high school FFA groups will provide a special tree pickup in the following towns: Village of Mt. Morris, City of Oregon, Byron area, City of Polo, City of Forreston, Village of Adeline, Baileyville, German Valley. Trees must be at the curb by 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 11 to ensure pick up. The City of Rochelle will once again chip trees at the curb for Rochelle residents, during the first two weeks

of January. Place trees in parkway along the street only. Trees left in the alley will not be chipped and will be treated as waste rather than recycled. Any trees left at the curb after Sunday, Jan. 19, will be picked up by the waste hauling company and taken to a landfill where they will be disposed of as waste. To enable the trees to be recycled, the trees must be totally undecorated. All tinsel, ornaments, lights, nails, plastic bags, and

tree stands must be removed. Items left on the tree may damage the chippers. Wreaths, garland and flocked trees cannot be chipped so please do not bring these items to the site. Pine mulch is excellent for acid loving plants such as irises, tiger lilies, lilacs, azaleas, roses, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, evergreen, blue berries, raspberries, pin oaks, grapes, and dogwood. Pine mulch helps conserve moisture, keeps weeds from

growing and can be used for walk ways. When Christmas trees are chipped and used for mulch, landfill space is conserved and burning them is avoided thereby reducing pollution. Residents may bring a shovel and container and take home free mulch when available at the drop off sites.

or call 847-253-0168.

Help keep pets safe during the cold winter months This winter, pet owners must be prepared as the earliest below zero Fahrenheit temperatures seen in the past 18 years have arrived. The below zero conditions combined with dangerous wind chills pose challenges especially for pet owners. Steps taken by pet owners can help to keep pets safe from the cold weather and prevent serious health threats.

During the winter and always, the best and most sensible action is to keep cats indoors and out of the elements. Provide a proper, balanced diet and ensure that they are in good health. Since cats keep their illnesses a secret as a survival tactic, it is most important to watch cats for any early signs of illness. Make certain cats get a

regular physical examination from a veterinarian to detect any potential diseases and other health problems early on, so that they can be addressed and treated before becoming threatening to the cat’s health, happiness, and quality of life. Dogs present somewhat of a different calling. While the aforementioned areas hold true for cats, dogs are

often outdoors for walks and exercise with their owners. Cold weather can be as dangerous for them, as it is for humans. Short haired dogs can benefit from a doggie coat when walking outdoors. All dogs should become acclimated to the colder weather. Before taking a dog out jogging, pet owners should

be sure the dog is properly conditioned. Start gradually when taking a dog out for a run. Ice, particularly thin ice that cracks under foot, can lead to cut paws. Snow packed between the pads of the feet can lead to frost bite. Additionally, salt or ice melting products can be harmful to the feet of dogs. Rinse the paws thoroughly after returning from a walk

outside. Many good booties are available that may help dogs tolerate the conditions and p Perhaps most important of all, microchipping a cat or dog will assist in returning the pet if it gets lost. Owners should be certain that the contact information that is on file associated with the microchip is current, including a cell phone number.
