OGLE COUNTY | SHERIFF’S DEPT. ADMINISTRATIVE TOW FUND

Transfer completed Sheriff turns more than $51,900 over to treasurer BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

OREGON – Ogle County’s controversial administrative tow fund is now under the oversight of the county treasurer. Sheriff Michael Harn took a check for the remaining fund balance – $51,932.07 – to the treasurer’s office

Tuesday morning, Treasurer John Coffman said. The fund was added to the county’s accounting system by midday, Coffman said, and the treasurer’s office will now track the money going in and out, as it does with other county funds. TRANSFER CONTINUED ON A4

DIXON – In the 2 years since former Comptroller Rita Crundwell was arrested at City Hall, lots of changes have been made – and more are to come. The city hired a new finance director, Paula Meyer, and its first city administrator, David Nord. In November, residents will vote on whether to change the Paula city’s form of govMeyer ernment. In the next few months, the city will get a review of its new accounting practices, a new employee handbook and a policies-andpractices manual. David Last week, Nord Meyer, Nord and Mayor Jim Burke met with with Sauk Valley Media’s editorial board to discuss those changes, in addition to Crundwell’s time in Dixon and the 2 years since her arrest. Sikich, a Naperville-based accounting firm, will be brought in to evaluate the city’s separation of duties in the finance department, Meyer said.

It will be a semi-private course, with some membership fees charged, but the public will be able to play golf there. Eissens, Vandendooren and a silent partner paid $323,000 for the property. The property does not include the restaurant on the parcel next door; that site still is for sale. It also didn’t include all 18 holes – they hope to negotiate with a Mount Carroll landowner who owns the 36-acre parcel on which five holes remain, Swanson said. The original 9-hole course, built in 1976, is theirs, though, and that’s what they’re opening with. There also is a driving range and a practice green. Swanson, 26, a Rockford native, is moving from Savanna to live onsite. They’ve already got a staff of a half-dozen, and likely will be hiring four or five more people, he said. Growing up in Thomson, Eissens and Vandendooren have a sentimental attachment to the former Lynwood Lynks, as the course was known – they cut their golfing teeth there. The name Sand Burr, in fact, hearkens back to the Sand Burr Tournament, a tradition for Buck’s regulars, Swanson said. Now Eissens, 36, owns his own contracting business, Eissens Construction, and Vandendooren, 26 next month, works for Pioneer Seed in Erie. Vandendooren got his first job working at the restaurant at Buck’s Barn

LEE COUNTY

Board rejects rezoning land for apartments ‘It’s clear case of spot zoning,’ official says

son Road that they had inherited. They wanted to convert and renovate a former farmhouse into a duplex. Their plan also included building a rental house, expected to be worth $70,000 to $80,000. During Tuesday’s monthly County Board meeting, member David Gusse, R-Amboy, wanted to know whether the county had ever before approved changing agricultural property to multi-family residential. Zoning Administrator Chris Henkel, who started in his position about 20 years ago, recalled no other cases. In one example, the county allowed land near Dixon to change from single-family to multi-family, he said. Henkel said the Roes’ proposal was incompatible with agricultural uses in Nelson Township or anywhere else in the county.

The fire department usually transports patients directly to the hospital, Shipman said, but the department might have to respond to a helicopter crash or set up a helicopter rescue. The React helicopter flies about two missions a day, said Flight Nurse Tom Walsh, and covers much of northern Illinois, north to Madison, Wis., and into Iowa. It can fly to Peoria, but would need to refuel before returning. “The No. 1 thing we do is rapid transport – getting patients from Point A to Point B,� Walsh said. A 20-minute trip in a helicopter, compared to a longer trip in an ambulance, can make the difference between life and death, he said. The helicopter is equipped with advanced radar technology, Walsh said, which allows it to see cell phone towers and other elements while flying. The helicopter needs a landing zone at least 100 feet by 100 feet, making the Public Safety Building’s parking lot just large enough, said Capt. Clark Pollard, a retired military pilot who was a co-pilot for Marine One and flew for former President George W. Bush. As the helicopter prepared to take off Tuesday morning, the gathered crowd took photos and videos on cellphones. The wind from the propeller and the sound picked up as the helicopter took off. After its flyover, the helicopter quickly disappeared into the sky on its way back to Rockford.

DIXON – The Lee County Board on Tuesday rejected a proposal to rezone agricultural land to allow for a few apartments in Nelson Township. “It’s a clear case of spot zoning,� member Allyn Buhrow, R-Ashton, said. One member, Wes Morrissey, D-Amboy, dissented. “I don’t feel like it’s the county’s position to tell them they can’t put apartments on their land,� he said. Lynn and Paul Roe of Grand Detour had asked the county to rezone – from agricultural use to multi-family residential – property on Atkin-

Raises for elected posts approved County Board member Wes Morrissey, D-Amboy, who is campaigning for treasurer, opposed the increases. He said the three positions have salaries well above the area’s household median income, adding that a lack of raises wouldn’t hurt the officials. “They should set an example,� he said. “Elected officials sit on a higher pedestal. Their bosses are the people.� Member Judy Truckenbrod, R-West Brook-

DIXON – The Lee County Board on Tuesday approved raises for three elected offices during their next 4-year terms. The sheriff, treasurer and clerk will get a raise in each of the 4 years, a $3,500 boost for each office during the next term. The offices are on the ballot this year. The current salaries are $72,063 for the sheriff and $59,313 each for the treasurer and clerk.

lyn, said it was only fair to give elected officials a raise, given their employees have received $1,000-a-year increases. “It’s a position of respect for these offices,� she said. The County Board sided with Truckenbrod. In a voice vote, only a handful opposed the raises. Four years ago, the County Board voted unanimously to give $250 annual raises to the county clerk and treasurer over 4 years, while the sheriff received $300 increases.

Earlier this month, the zoning board recommended that the county board reject the zoning change. It said the proposal didn’t comply with the county’s comprehensive land-use plan, which favors agricultural uses, unless prospective development is next to a city or village. At the zoning meeting, neighbors argued the Roes’ apartments could attract low-income people, possibly bringing criminal activity. They said that could reduce their property values. The zoning board, though, had used none of those arguments in its recommendation. On Sauk Valley Media’s Facebook page, many commenters criticized the decision, saying they opposed discrimination against low-income people. They said people shouldn’t assume the poor are criminals.

Gouker asks for tow fund audit Board will have to vote on it at its next meeting BY VINDE WELLS VWELLS SHAWMEDIACOM 3HAW.EWS3ERVICE

In an apparent reversal of its stand 3 months ago, the Ogle County Board authorized Chairman Kim Gouker Tuesday to proceed with getting a forensic audit of the sheriff’s tow fund. “I would like to see a full audit of the tow fund from beginning to end,� Gouker said. He said the audit will determine whether or not Sheriff Michael Harn has misused money from the fund, and lay to rest the questions brought up over the last several months. Gouker said Harn is also eager to have the matter resolved. “I spoke to the sheriff on my way here and told him what I was going to propose,� Gouker said. “He thinks it’s a great idea. He’s fully cooperative.� Harn has come under fire in the last few months over expenditures from the tow fund, which included purchasing a new vehicle, flowers for Secretaries Day, a tent at

the county fair, and $4,000 for the departm e n t ’ s Facebook page to be Kim managed. Gouker Gouker said he has an estimate for the forensic audit of $7,500 from Sikich, the firm that does the county’s regular annual audits. Because it was not on the agenda, the board will have to wait until its May meeting to vote to hire Sikich for the forensic audit. Board member Richard Petrizzo made a motion for a forensic audit of the tow fund at the board’s Jan. 21 meeting. However, Gouker said the matter could not be voted on then, because it was not on the 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 monies could be spent and requiring the approval of expenditures by the county committee that oversees the sheriff’s budget. At Tuesday’s meeting, the board approved a

resolution establishing the tow fund. Gouker said that although Michael the board Harn approved implementing administrative tow fees in 2011, the ordinance governing that did not actually establish the tow fund. The new resolution also mandates that fund’s 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 fee be handled by the Ogle County Treasurer’s office, rather than the sheriff, as in the past. While a check for $51,932.07 was turned over to him Tuesday, Treasurer John Coffman said he did not receive any two fund revenue or expenditure records from the sheriff’s department, only the check. “How do you know it’s correct?� board member Bill Welty asked. “I don’t,� Coffman replied. “Do we have the tow fund books?� board member Pat Nordman asked.

Gouker said he had recently received a copy of the fund ledger. In a related matter, three tow truck owners went before the board to voice their concern over being taken off the sheriff’s tow rotation list. Doug Aken of Oregon, spoke for the three, which also included Stan Ubben of Mt. Morris and Greg Wagner of Polo. Aken said all three have been on the rotation list for many years, but found themselves being called less frequently under Harn’s administration. “Since Sheriff Harn has taken office, my tows have dwindled,� Aken said. On March 20, Aken said he received a letter from Harn informing him he was no longer on the list. The letter gave no reason. However, Aken said he believes it was because he supported another candidate in the March 18 Republican primary. Harn was defeated by Rochelle police officer Brian VanVickle in his bid for a second term in the three-way race. Aken said Harn removed Ubben from the tow list in May 2012, after Ubben towed an all-terrain vehicle at the request of the sheriff’s department and a dispute ensued.

Harn said transfer would happen April 8 TRANSFER

CONTINUED FROM A1

In February, the Ogle County Board approved changes to the tow fund, limiting how the money could be spent and transferring the fund to the treasurer, but Harn was slow to turn it over. On April 8, Harn met

with Coffman, Ogle County Chairman Kim Gouker and Vice Chairman John Finfrock about transferring the fund. Harn told them he would have it transferred by the end of that day, Gouker and Coffman said on Monday. In December, Sauk Valley Media reported that Harn had used the tow fund, which had collected

$210,400 between October 2011 and November 2013, to pay for repairs to department vehicles, a tent at the Ogle County Fair, a $4,000 management fee for the department’s Facebook page, and flowers for Secretary’s Day, among other expenses. The County Board restricted the fund so

it can be used only for fuel or to buy, repair, or maintain police vehicles or vehicle equipment. Vehicles can be bought with the fund at the sheriff’s discretion, according to the amended ordinance, but “shall be done only with the advice and consent of� the County Security Committee.

Limitations designed to heighten security CONTROL

CONTINUED FROM A1

“What their intention is, or what their proposal is, is they’ll come in and look at the controls that I’ve set up and make recommendations for additional controls,� she explained. Like most municipalities and even small businesses, Dixon doesn’t have an ideal separation of duties to eliminate the chance of theft. “With that [small] size of an office, there is no way we will ever have appropriate separation of duties,� Meyer said. “It cannot be done. We have to spend a lot more money to do that, and that doesn’t make any

financial sense. That will never happen.� But new controls can make up for inadequate separation of duties, she said. The city has added an employee in the finance department since Meyer was hired in September 2012. Five employees now work under Meyer, Nord and City Clerk Kathe Swanson. Meyer has limited, by design, her ability to update or input information into the city’s accounting system. Each of the five employees has a different responsibility, from inputting changes, printing and mailing checks. No single employee can individu-

ally complete the entire process, Meyer said. And while the city no longer writes checks – another change by design – two signatures would be needed on a check if the system broke down and a written check was required.

Employee handbook Nord is working on the city’s employee handbook and policies-andpractices manual. “We are looking not just to be reactive with these things,� Nord said. Nord wants the city to move away from the approach “This is the way we’ve always done

it,� or, “This is the way I was told to do it,� which he has heard since he was hired in November. “We’re putting things in writing,� Nord said. “Things as we become aware of will be part of that. Things that we could even think might happen will be put in that, as well. “We don’t want to have to keep responding to things as they come to a head. We want to cut them off before they actually happen.� A draft of the employee handbook could be given to the City Council for review soon, Nord said, and after that is approved, he will turn his focus to the policies-andpractices manual.

In Loving Memory of Maureen Ann Danilson

January 20, 1957 - April 16, 2013 Gods Garden God looked around His garden and saw an empty space, He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face, He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest, God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best. God knew you were in pain and a cure was not to be, So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you slip away, Though we loved you dearly we knew you could not stay. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, For part of us went with you the day God called you home. Love you forever Mom!

STERLING

City looks into official’s residency Cox believed to have moved away last year

In an interview, the mayor said the city is researching residency law and received information from the state attorney general’s office. “It’s not that I’m going after Barry,� Lee said. “If Barry votes and he’s not legally a member of the council, that could potentially nullify the vote. If I were clearly living out of town, I would resign.� Asked this week about Lee’s comments, Cox said, “Good for Skip,� and then hung up the phone. For at least 7 months,

STERLING – Sterling Mayor Skip Lee said that if he were in Alderman Barry Cox’s situation, he would leave the City Council. Cox, a 23-year member of the council, is believed to have moved outside city limits last year.

a large dumpster has taken up a good portion of the Coxes’ driveway Barry at 1203 E. Cox 20th St. The split-level house is mostly empty. Cox has another house at 24269 Hillcrest Drive, 5 miles northwest of Sterling. The Coxes have owned it since 2010. In September, a Sauk Valley Media reporter visited the Hillcrest house, which overlooks a small

lake. Neighbors down the street said that’s where Cox lived. And his wife, Skip Julie, who Lee was tending the yard, said he lived there, adding they would be moving and that they still had a bed at the house on 20th Street. In an interview at the time, Cox said he complied with the requirement that an alderman maintain a residence in his ward. Cox’s voter

registration and driver’s license are tied to the city address, he said. Asked where he hung his hat at night, Cox said, “It’s none of your damn business where I sleep.� Lee said hardly anyone has approached him about Cox’s residency. He said Cox’s perspective is valuable on the council, because he is the voice for those disenchanted with city government. Still, he said, the city has a duty to look into the situation, adding that he believes Cox lives outside city limits.

“Were he to run next year, I believe someone would challenge his residency,� the mayor said. “I haven’t heard of anyone who would, but he is vulnerable.� In September, Cox said he wouldn’t pinpoint a time frame for leaving the council, but expected at the time to finish moving within 60 days. “When I move out of the house and put a for-sale sign in the front yard, I’m really close to resigning from the council,� he said. No sign is on the property.

ROCK FALLS

Daughter on board

City council ratifies labor agreement with firefighters

Draft of comprehensive plan ready for public scrutiny BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ KSCHULTZ SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

MORRISON – The newest member of the Whiteside County Board will have the best of all possible mentors: her mom. Tuesday, Chairman Jim Duffy appointed Katherine Nelson, 54, to fill the position left vacant by longtime board member Tony Arduini’s death in March. Mom Karen Nelson has served on the board since 2001. Both are Rock Falls Democrats, and are among only five women on the 27-member board. They most likely also are its first mother-daughter members, and are not related to County Clerk Dana Nelson. “New� Nelson, a Newman Central Catholic High School graduate, is a production scheduler at Donaldson Co. Inc. in Dixon, and has been involved in politics, county or otherwise, “most of my life.� She requested the position, she said. Her only goal is to “represent the people of Whiteside County, their concerns and wants and wishes,� Nelson said. Also, Rock Falls Democrat Glenn Truesdell was elected board vice chairman, the position Arduini held. The board also learned that the full draft of the county’s first comprehensive plan, a roadmap for future development, was posted online Tuesday for all to read, and that public hearings on the proposal have been set for early May. After the May hearings, in Sterling and in Morrison, the board will hold a final public hearing at its June meeting; it is expected to adopt the final version in July.

ROCK FALLS – The City Council approved a new 3-year contract with its firefighters Tuesday after an executive session. The deal had already been ratified by the union, Rock Falls Firefighter Association Local 3291.

THE CARTOONIST’S VOICE

Rob Rogers, Newspaper Enterprise Association

Volunteer corps could generate beneficial results What we think Recruits are sought for a new group of volunteers being organized in Lee County. People who wish to help their communities during emergencies should seize this opportunity to become involved.

W

e believe that, when governmental units work together, good things happen. The same goes for departments within a governmental unit. We also believe that the most valuable resource a community has is an aware and engaged public. When you combine the shared goal of serving the public with a spirit of cooperation and volunteerism, the synergy can yield extremely beneficial results. Those thoughts came to mind when we heard about the creation of the Lee County Volunteer Corps. The group’s first meeting will be next week, April 24, from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Dixon Public Safety Building, 220 S. Hennepin Ave. Volunteers from across the county are being asked to sign up and get involved. The corps is the brainchild of the leaders of two Lee County departments: Tim Trader, the Lee County Health Department’s environmental health director, and Kevin Lalley, the Lee County Emergency Management director. Both departments must deal with emergency situations – one, caused by health emergencies; the other, caused by weather emergencies. Both, at times, are in need of volunteers to carry out functions such as weather spotting,

medical distribution, damage assessment, sand bagging, and administrative assistance. Why not work together to recruit and train those volunteers? At the April 24 informational meeting, Lalley and Trader will give a 15-minute overview of the corps, then spend 5 to 10 minutes on each category. Prospective volunteers can fill out an application at the meeting, where dinner will be served. If you are 18 or older, you are welcome to attend. Training will occur later. Organizers anticipate having sessions several times a year. Volunteers will also be utilized during occasional disaster drills. Currently, about 60 volunteers already are involved in various ways to help the departments during disasters and health emergencies. It is hoped that they will be supplemented with new recruits. People who wish to participate must RSVP to Trader at 815-284-3371 or by email at ttrader@ lchd.com. Trader may also be contacted for additional information and applications. Two departments working together, assisted by caring, trained volunteers. That’s the type of cooperation we like to see. We encourage people across the county to seize this opportunity to become involved.

Legislators take spring break After 2 weeks away, it’ll be crunch time in Springfield

dougFINKE

SPRINGFIELD – It’s spring break. Let the party begin. The General Assembly hit a sort of halfway point in the spring session last week. It was the deadline for bills that started in the House to get out of the House, and for Senate bills to get out of the Senate. Of course, as anyone who’s been around this place knows, it can be a kind of fuzzy deadline. If there’s something that’s deemed important and has to be done, you can get around the deadline. There aren’t any finished budget bills out there yet, and obviously the state isn’t going to do without a budget next year. Plus, the Senate extended the deadline for a bunch of its bills, so we don’t know their fate yet. Still, for a lot of things, the deadline is the deadline, and if the issue hasn’t moved yet, it probably never will. So now, lawmakers will take the next 2 weeks off before returning for the final push of the session.

Doug Finke’s column is syndicated by GateHouse News Service. Contact him at doug. finke@sj-r. com.

It’s either Passover break or Easter break if you are religiously inclined, or spring break for the secular. Enjoy it while you can. When lawmakers return in 2 weeks, it’s pretty much nonstop until the end.

0OLITICSDERAILS MILLIONAIRETAX Good news last week for millionaires, which, according to House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, excludes all but about 13,600 or so of us here in Illinois. Madigan scrubbed his proposed amendment to the state Constitution to impose a 3 percent surtax on incomes above $1 million a year. Just to be clear, you get the first $999,999.99 of income at the standard tax rate. It’s only the income from $1 million on up that would have had the surtax. A Madigan spokesman put the blame on Republicans. He said they were

more interested in protecting millionaires than helping school kids. Did we mention all the surtax money was supposed to go to schools? That’s nice spin, but the fact is the amendment was done in by Madigan’s own Democrats. Madigan could have had the amendment approved if all 71 House Democrats had voted for it. However, state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, has never supported anything that even smelled like an income tax hike. And Rep. Scott Drury, D-Highwood, issued a press release saying he couldn’t support a “piecemeal� approach to dealing with the state’s budget problems. So Madigan was down at least two votes among his own members. That meant he needed Republican support. Madigan surely knew no Republican was going to vote for an amendment that imposed higher taxes on millionaires, even if it was for the children. So what we have is a campaign issue, which is what this was all about anyway. If it was on the ballot, it likely would have driven up turnout among Democrats, who tend to have fewer millionaires in their ranks.

‘‘

Still, for a lot of things, the deadline is the deadline, and if the issue hasn’t moved yet, it probably never will.

’’

Doug Finke

But Madigan still has his campaign theme that Republicans care more about protecting millionaires than helping kids. And perhaps most important of all, he has Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner on record against the thing.

0REDATORS GETPROTECTION The Senate voted last week to add the American black bear, the gray wolf, and the cougar to the list of protected species under the state’s wildlife code. There were no dissenting votes. It means you can’t kill one of those animals unless it poses an imminent danger to a person or his property. A number of reasons were offered to support the bill, mainly along the lines of saving rare or endangered animals.

Farmers off to slow start Weather putting hold on corn crop planting in state ST. LOUIS (AP) – Most years about this time, northern Illinois farmer Monty Whipple, like so many Midwest growers, would be riding high in his monstrous planter, kicking up dust while sowing corn in hundreds of acres. But this spring has kept him sidelined, and he’s anything but alone. Spring planting across much of the nation’s Corn Belt is sputtering, foiled by rainy and chilly conditions that in broad stretches have left the ground either too soggy or too cold for effective seeding. As of Sunday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says, just 3 percent of the U.S. corn crop was sown, half the dismal pace of last year, when one of the wettest springs on record got farmers in many states off to the slowest start in decades. In Illinois, just 1 percent of this year’s corn has been planted – onetenth of the average pace of the previous 5 years. Farmers in other key corn-producing states – Iowa, Nebraska and Indiana – were equally idle, the USDA says. Missouri has 9 percent of its crop in the field, down from 16 percent this time a year ago. Still, Whipple and other growers in Illinois and Missouri aren’t sounding alarms, noting that today’s bigger, more efficient planting machines can make up for lost time. Such was the case last year, when more than 40 percent of Illinois’ corn crop got planted in just 1 week in mid-May. The USDA says corn sowing traditionally begins about this time, with that task typically in full swing from April 21 through May 23. And the agency notes that, even with last year’s frustratingly slow

Central Illinois corn and soybean farmer Garry Niemeyer inspects the soil temperature and the sprouting of corn seeds he planted earlier as a test Tuesday in Auburn. Farmers eager to fire up the combines and get their corn crops in the ground are being foiled by an uncooperative spring after a long winter. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects farmers to now launch into full-scale planting at the end of this month, later than usual.

start to planting, U.S. farmers still reaped a record 13.9 billion bushels of corn and the third-biggest soybean crop on record. “There’s really not any need to be concerned,� Illinois Farm Bureau spokesman John Hawkins said. At least not yet, as Whipple waits for spring to stop acting like winter. With a fresh batch of snow on his roughly 800 acres of farmland near Utica in LaSalle County, he spent Tuesday hauling stored grain to a

barge and felt productive. “I can’t be in the field, so this is a good job to get done while waiting,� he said, though he admitted he’s “starting to get a little frustrated.� He guessed it will be another week before he can begin planting corn. “We just haven’t had that week or 2 of good weather, and there’s a lot of work to be done.� But he said he has resisted the urge to rush in a crop when the soil is marginal, saying “you only get one shot at this.� Near Missouri’s Warrenton, west of St. Louis, Keith Witt said only one or two local farmers have any corn planted – for bragging rights, if anything. But with 3,500 acres soaked by 6 inches of rain over the past 10 days or so, Witt guesses he’ll have to wait until the end of next week to start planting. Expectations of more rain within days soured any hope of getting in

the fields now to plant half of his acreage with corn, then the other half later with beans. “It’s hard to find something to do, realizing you want to be out there and getting it done but can’t,� said Witt, a former Missouri Corn Growers Association president. “But we still have plenty of time. Last year [with the delayed sowing], we planted everything in 4 days. So what difference does it make?� Back in central Illinois, near Auburn, Garry Niemeyer feels lucky. Simply to test his equipment, the 65-year-old farmer has sown 100 of the roughly 1,200 acres he’ll devote to corn this year. The reason: His turf has been relatively dry, though that might change with the considerable chance for rain by Friday. “I know there’s nervous tension, but you have to go with the weather cards you’re dealt,� he said.

Cellular snoop discovers boyfriend is cheating Dear Abby: I have been in a long-distance relationship with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victorâ&#x20AC;? for several years. Recently, I began to suspect he was cheating. What raised my suspicion was that I suddenly couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach him on the weekends. Usually we would Skype â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday night for me, Monday morning for him. Last February, when I visited him, I snooped in his phone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; spare me the condemnation. I found an email he had written to an old girlfriend in which he suggested they plan their â&#x20AC;&#x153;nextâ&#x20AC;? rendezvous. I plan on dumping him, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to go about it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always

Tinker came here through the local animal control. She is a Rottweiler mix with a short black and tan coat and a docked tail. She weighs about 45 pounds now and is 7 months old. Tinker has been spayed and vaccinated. She is cute and just wiggly all over with happiness! She tries, but is not housebroke at this time. Puppies always require training and patience in order to be an awesome well-behaved adult. Tinker is super friendly and loves attention. She is playful and energetic and needs owners that are fairly active themselves. Tinker is a great puppy: happy, loving, and smart!

Brunching it up for Easter Make holiday meal stand out BY DANIEL NEMAN MCT News Service

F

irst comes church, for those who go to church. Then comes brunch. Easter brunch has become almost as much a part of the Easter celebration as chocolate, eggs and bunnies. It is a way to continue that feelgood sense of contentment with friends, family and loved ones. And if you aren’t religious, it is a great excuse to come together for a Sunday brunch, the best of all possible meals. Sunday brunch is about happiness; it is a pleasant, slow-paced way to put off chores and think about the week ahead. Good food, good company, eggs. Who could want anything more? Perhaps because of its religious connotations, Easter brunch always seems to be the most enjoyable brunch of the year. Everyone seems to be in a good mood. Spring has almost always arrived. Flowers are blooming. And those little egg-shaped chocolates wrapped in brightly colored foil certainly help. So do jelly beans and Peeps. For this year’s Easter brunch, I decided to feature a single dish that combines all three of the foods most closely associated with the season: eggs, asparagus and ham. Eggs and asparagus, of course, are related to spring, rebirth and renewal, the not-sosubtle subtext that runs through the Easter celebration. Lamb is eaten by some at Easter because it is a springtime dish, and because Jesus was called the Lamb of God, but ham is popular for Easter because, well, it just is. My recipe for Italian Scrambled Eggs with Asparagus and Ham comes from the invaluable “Frog Commissary Cookbook.” The original version is made with prosciutto, rather than ham, and prosciutto is an unbeatable accompaniment to asparagus. While the saltiness of prosciutto brightens the flavor of the dish, the smoke in ham does the same thing from another angle. I went with ham here because of its associations with Easter. The dish is made especially memorable by employing a trick used by restaurants to boost the flavor (and fat content) of scrambled eggs. Just add pieces of cream cheese

Brunch has practically become a required event on Easter Sunday. One menu suggestion includes Italian scrambled eggs with asparagus and ham. to the beaten eggs, bringing a rich depth to the meal. Yes, it’s decadent, but what the heck – it’s a holiday. Such a sumptuously textured entrée begs a side dish that is simple and elegant, yet in its way just as delicious. The perfect choice is a simpler version of one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes. If you have eaten a well-marbled piece of beef or tender lamb at my house, there is a good chance you have been served oven-roasted potatoes with onions and rosemary. It’s a standard; we probably make it too often, actually, but we have found few other starches that are as simple, yet as profoundly satisfying. The rosemary would overpower the delicate egg dish, so I left it out. We are left with ovenroasted potatoes with onions, a deceptively easy dish, but one that pairs perfectly with any egg dish. Essentially, it is a simpler and possibly healthier version of hash browns. You cut up a potato into bite-size pieces, toss them with plenty of salt and some pepper, and pop them into the oven. Cook them for a bit, add chopped onions, and cook until done. I’m a big fan of fruit

salad, so I chose to make one for a first course. Making a fruit salad is an art, and a sense of culinary balance is needed, but it all begins with whatever fruit looks freshest and best at the market. Buy that, and make sure it will be ripe by the day of your brunch. Once you have your fruit, there are a few rules to follow. The most important principle is to present a variety of different kinds of fruit. You’ll want at least one citrus choice and probably at least one apple. Count on one portion of fruit per person (one apple, one orange, one slice of melon). Be sure to add a selection of berries, preferably at least two different kinds, and don’t forget the grapes, if you like them. Toss in a handful or two of raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit to inject a delightful contrast of textures and – what the heck, it’s a holiday – sprinkle the top with some nuts. I like almonds, but walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts would work, as well. And if you have chocolate chips lying around, lonely and forlorn, throw those in, too. To make the fruit salad really special, top it with a port reduction glaze, a trick I learned from a

2014 Chevrolet

Cruze

restaurant in Michigan. Take four parts of port and one part of sugar, and boil it away until it thickens and resembles syrup. Pour the glaze sparingly over the fruit for a hint of unexpectedly complex sweetness. And finally, every good brunch deserves dessert. I decided to make peanut butter chocolate chip muffins. Why? They are peanut butter chocolate chip muffins. No other explanation is needed. If pressed, you could say that chocolate is a traditional treat at Easter, and that nothing goes with chocolate like peanut butter. Besides, a great meal should end with a great dessert, preferably one that can be made the night before. What the heck. It’s a holiday.

Italian Scrambled Eggs, Asparagus and Ham Yield: 6 servings 6 tablespoons butter, divided 1¼ cups sliced mushrooms ¼ pound ham or prosciutto, slivered or diced 3/4 teaspoon minced garlic ½ medium green pepper, cut into ¼-inch dice ½ pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths 10 eggs 1½ tablespoons minced fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried 1 teaspoon dried oregano ¼ teaspoon salt 3 ⁄4 teaspoon pepper 3 ⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 6 ounces mozzarella, shredded (about 1½ cups) 1/ cup grated Parme3 san cheese 1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the mushrooms, ham, garlic and green pepper. Sauté over medium heat until the vegetables are tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Blanch the asparagus in boiling salted water until crisp-tender. Drain well and set aside. Whisk together the eggs, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cut the cream cheese in bits into the eggs. EASTER CONTINUED ON A10

Many weight-conscious people know that nuts and seeds are high in calories and might shy away from them for that reason. While you need to watch your portion size, it would be a mistake to completely exclude nuts and seeds from your diet. Nuts and seeds are a source of heart-healthy unsaturated fat and antioxidants like vitamin E. They contain fiber and protein, which help fill you up and satisfy your hunger. Nuts and seeds also contain plant substances that might help lower cholesterol. All nuts and seeds, in general, will contain healthy fat, protein and fiber, but some have slightly different nutrient profiles. And peanuts, while not technically a nut, have similar nutrition. Nut consumption has been positively associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. And, as far as weight is concerned,

a study of more than 50,000 women reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2009 discovered that women who more frequently ate nuts tended to gain less weight than women who ate nuts less often. A serving of nuts is about a handful of whole nuts or 2 tablespoons of nut butter. A serving of seeds, like flaxseed, is usually 2 tablespoons. A single serving of nuts or nut butter provides about 200 calories; a serving of seeds about 60. Including a serving of nuts or seeds in your diet each day can be as simple as eating a handful of peanuts for a snack, or adding ground flax seed to your oat-

If you would like to try something different, you might be interested in some of the nut and seed products Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been experimenting with lately: Almond butter: Less saturated fat than peanut butter, and contains more magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, fiber, iron and vitamin E. Sunflower seed butter: If you love roasted sunflower seeds, you will like it. Good with apple slices. Almond flour: Almond flour or almond meal is simply almonds ground very fine. So far, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used it to make scones and pancakes. Both turned out great! Chia Seeds: Add a tablespoon or two to your oatmeal or yogurt. When added to liquid, Chia seeds swell to make a gel. Because of this property, they can be used to make jams.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll begin this list with a much shorter, sadder list. Corn. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the long version of the list of vegetables I would eat before I met my wife, Kayla. And, to be honest, corn joined the list when I was about 18. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say that, while growing up, I was about as finicky as eaters get. Today, I have another list. Onions. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much the only veggie I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat (happily). The key? Like any loving, creative caretaker, Kayla came up with unique ways to work veggies into recipes. Slowly, but surely, I was able to remove the cheese, dressing, etc., and enjoy many vegetables on their own, many of them even (gulp) raw! As I entered my 30s, it got harder and harder to keep the extra pounds off. Exercise alone wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut it anymore. So I started enjoying a salad for lunch a few days a week. OK, maybe I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy it, initially. Today, I love my salads, and I love thinking outside the plate with my combinations. Here are five combinations that might just help picky eaters take them down with a smile. With a light hand, any of them can check in at fewer than 500 calories. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to lose weight, measure everything, and track it. Take it from a father of 8-month-old twins: I understand it sounds time-consuming. But eventually, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to eyeball your ingredients.

Charity trumps rivalry Game to benefit Wounded Warriors BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

When Morrison visits Fulton for a baseball doubleheader on Monday, a bigger purpose will be served than trying to inch up the Three Rivers North standings. The games will also serve as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides aid for injured military service members. Steamers coach Kyle Miller approached Mustangs coach Ben Sondgeroth about 2 months ago about having some sort of charity game. When Miller suggested it benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, Sondgeroth called it a “no-brainer.” Both coaches have ties to the project. Miller’s father, Junior, is active in the American Legion in his hometown of Miles, Iowa, and that organization has had numerous fundraisers for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Morrison freshman Lauren Rice pitches Tuesday against Kewanee in a Three Rivers crossover game in Morrison. Rice struck out 13 and walked one in a five-inning no-hitter, as the Fillies won 12-0.

Almost perfect Fillies’ Rice throws no-no against Boilermakers BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5551

Star of the game: Lauren Rice (M), 5 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 13 SO, 1 BB Key performers: Shannon Finneran, Morrison, 2B, 3 RBIs, 2 R; Brooke Stralow, Morrison, 3B, 1B, 3 RBI, 2 R Up next: Fulton at Morrison, 4:30 p.m. today

MORRISON – The only drama at the end of Tuesday’s softball game between Kewanee and Morrison was whether Fillies’ freshman Lauren Rice would toss a perfect game. She didn’t, but everything went Morrison’s way in a 12-0,

run-rule victory against the visiting Boilermakers. Rice settled for a no-hitter, and allowed just one baserunner. Rice (3-0) struck out 10 of the first 12 batters she faced. The only Kewanee player to put the ball in play up to that point was No. 3 hitter Ashley Folger, who grounded out her first two times at bat.

CHARITY CONTINUED ON B3

In the fifth and final inning, however, Rice had trouble finding the plate against Kewanee’s Jen Kubinsky, who led off with a walk. She eventually reached third base, but was stranded there as Rice struck out the side for the third time in five innings.

Morrison at Fulton When: 4:30 p.m. Monday Where: Drives Park, Fulton FYI: Games will include activities to benefit Wounded Warrior Project, and teams will wear special camouflage uniforms.

BOYS TRACK & FIELD | FULTON RELAYS

Showing off at home Steamers take first title at own meet in 17 years BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

FULTON – Fulton thrower Austin Regenwether had a few extra eyes watching him Tuesday during the 68th annual Fulton Relays. For the first time this season, Regenwether’s family was able to watch him compete, and he saved his best for them. Regenwether won the discus event with a personal-best throw of 117 feet, 3 inches. His throw helped propel the Steamers to their first win at the invite since 1997, when Regenwether was just a 1-yearold. Fulton scored 81 points and performed well enough near the end of the invite to hold off second-place finisher,

Top 3 teams 1. Fulton 82; 2. ErieProphetstown 71; 3. Newman 64 Stars of the meet: Bryce Holesinger, Fulton & Brady Rude, Newman, 2 wins each d e f en d i n g c h a m p io n Erie-Prophetstown (71). Newman Central Catholic (64) finished third, while Amboy (45) took sixth. Morrison (12) was ninth, West Carroll (11) was 10th, and Milledgeville (7) was 11th in the 11-team field. “It feels really great,” Fulton coach Mike Ankrom said of the win. “Austin has been a great leader for our throwers, and for him to win the discus was huge for us.

SPORTS inside

“We also have some depth in the sprints, and all the kids are working hard and have had good attitudes.” Regenwether had been living with his grandmother for 4 months, after his mother and brother moved to Arizona for work. But to his delight, they returned Tuesday in time to see him. “Them being there might have been the reason, for all of this, tonight,” Regenwether said. “It’s always nice to have family members watch you.” Fulton’s Bryce Holesinger also helped out in the field portion, placing second in the long jump with a distance of 20 feet, 3 inches, just 6 inches behind Newman’s Brady Rude.

The Blackhawks enter the playoff arena Thursday, with the Bulls not far behind. There are certain things both teams must do in order to consider the season a success, and there are ways they need to go about things in order to accomplish that.

Rules to live by in postseason A

s the Blackhawks and Bulls begin the playoffs this week, heed one Chicago sports observerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ten Commandments of the Postseason (not exactly handed down from on high as much as from the United Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey press box):

1. Thou shalt not rationalize what defines a successful season if it ends prematurely.

On the tube TV listings

To avoid classifying 2013-14 under disappointment for either team, the Hawks must at least win the West, and the Bulls need to advance to the second round. As well as the shorthanded Bulls closed the season, nothing short of taking the Pacers or Heat deep into a second-round series will count as satisfying. As for the healthy Hawks, they have too much talent, depth, and experience to succumb to an early exit like they did the last time they entered the postseason as defending champs. A favorable first-round matchup against a reeling, offensively challenged Blues team should help build momentum too.

Today

2. Thou shalt not overreact to any lopsided loss or series deficit.

The Bulls lost Game 1 last year to the Nets by 17, and rallied to win the series in seven games. The Hawks trailed the Red Wings 3-1 in the series, and 2-1 entering the third period of Game 6 at Detroit, and prevailed. Postseason momentum can swing as wildly as the moods in playoff cities. It takes discipline from fans and media to keep from getting too carried away positively or negatively.

Holesinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means a lot to the seniors, and it means a lot to Fulton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the talent and the kids who want to work for something greater.â&#x20AC;? Rude was key for Newman, and was the talk of the meet when he started off a dominant distance medley relay. The sophomore, starting from a standing position due to the different distances, jumped out to an early lead and quickly cut inside to take a lead he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up, and his relay mates held on for the wire-to-wire win by nearly 14 seconds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to get caught in a crowd,â&#x20AC;? Rude said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

The return of Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy to U.S. Cellular Field for a three-game series against his former team was the big news before Tuesday eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White Sox game. White Sox rookie righthander Erik Johnson did his best to steal some of that spotlight. He went toe-to-toe with Peavy, matching a career high by pitching 6 2/3 innings. He allowed three hits and one run, walked two, and struck out a career-high nine to keep a low-scoring game close. The White Sox capitalized on Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best start of the season to pull off a 2-1 victory over the Red Sox in the ninth inning. Alexei Ramirez scored the winner from second when Marcus Semien reached first on a throwing error by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts. White Sox slugger Adam Dunn welcomed Peavy back to Chicago by hitting a solo home run to right field. Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third home run of the season gave the White Sox a 1-0 lead over the defending World Series champions in the second inning. Peavy pitched for the White Sox from 2009 until he was traded in the middle of last summer in a threeteam deal to acquire right fielder Avisail Garcia. That was the only run Peavy allowed in six innings. He gave up three hits, walked four, and struck out eight. Cardinals 6, Brewers 1:

Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings, and Mark Ellis had two RBIs in his return from the disabled list to lead the Cardinals to a win over the Brewers in Milwaukee.

White Sox starting pitcher Erik Johnson delivers a pitch during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against the Red Sox in Chicago. The White Sox won 2-1. into the mid-90s past hitters before turning the game over to the bullpen in the seventh. Only Aramis Ramirez managed to break through off Miller hitting a solo homer in the fourth. The Brewers have just one run and six hits over the first two games of the three-game set with their NL Central rival.

The jump moves to intermediate

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

The player who will become the dummy is a tad like that, but in particular must not ignore his responsibilities in the bidding. Today’s deal, though, features another word in that sentence. Look at the South hand. West’s opening bid of one heart is followed by two passes. What should South do? In the second seat, immediately over a one-level opening bid, a single jump overcall in a suit is weak, indicating a respectable six-card suit and some 5-10 high-card points. In the balancing seat, though, the jump overcall becomes intermediate. It shows a decent six-card suit and some 14-16 high-

card points – one winner more than a minimum opening bid. Here, over South’s twospade bid, presumably West would rebid three hearts,

and North would compete with three spades. Then let’s assume that South shrugs his shoulders and bids four spades. West leads the heart king. East overtakes with his ace and returns the heart two. West wins, cashes the club ace, and continues with another club. How should declarer continue? This deal is easy for someone who remembers the chain of action and inaction during the bidding. East passed over one heart, but has produced the heart ace. He cannot also have the spade king; otherwise, he would have responded. So South should play a spade to his ace, being relieved when the king comes tumbling down. Declarer draws the last trump and claims. © 2014 UFS
