Jodi Fitzgerald celebrates as the verdict of guilty is read Thursday at the Rock Island County Justice Center in Rock Island. Sheley was found guilty in the June 28, 2008, bludgeoning deaths of Fitzgerald’s brother, Brock Branson, 29, his girlfriend, Kilynna Blake, 20, her 2-year-old son, Dayan, and Kenneth Ulve, 25, in Rock Falls.
DEER GROVE – Today, Jesse White officially became the longest-serving secretary of state in Illinois history, and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The 79-year-old White was at Deer Valley Country Club on Thursday to speak at the Whiteside County Democrats’ JFK Dinner. White is running for a fifth term as secretary of state, after serving as a state representative for 16 years. Since assuming his current post in 1998, he has handily disposed of his opponents – the closest anyone has come since is 28 points. White rallied the troops at the fundraiser while focusing on a theme of 50 years of progress since the death of the nation’s 35th president. But the secretary of state’s concept of progress was developed at an early age, and from a vantage point that few are fortunate enough to secure. PROGRESS CONTINUED ON A4

TODAY’S EDITION: 32 PAGES 2 SECTIONS VOL. 163 ISSUE 21
ROCK FALLS – Around 11 p.m. on June 28, 2008, Brock Branson, Kilynna Blake, her son, Dayan, and Kenneth Ulve were ambushed and brutally murdered in their Rock Falls apartment, beaten repeatedly with a hammer. Nicholas Sheley was the one who delivered those blows, a Rock Island County jury decided Thursday. Ulve was killed first. Then Sheley waited
until Branson and the Blakes got home before ambushing them in their hallway. Kilynna Blake’s cry of “Oh god, don’t! Stop!” ultimately was silenced by Sheley. The 12-person jury deliberated for almost 4 hours before reaching a guilty verdict against the Sterling man. Judge Jeffrey O’Connor set Sheley’s sentencing for Aug. 11. The jury also found the deaths to be “exceptionally brutal and heinous indicative of wanton cruelty.” GUILTY CONTINUED ON A13

The video interviews involved two children who were living with George at the time of the 2010 incident. They were conducted at the Shining Star Childrenâ€™s Advocacy Center in Dixon by a trained child interviewer, not police officers. After reviewing the interviews, Jacobson said the responses from the children,

â€˜A man with power and strengthâ€™ Longtime Dixon volunteer, Shaw CFO dies at 75 BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ KSCHULTZ SAUKVALLEYCOM EXT
WASHINGTON â€“ Phil Metka, former chief financial officer with Shaw Media and a longtime fixture in the Dixon volunteer community, died WednesPhil day at OSF Metka St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He was 75. Metka, who received his degree as a certified public accountant from Northern Illinois University, retired in July 2007 after 27 years of service to Shaw Newspapers, now Shaw Media, and to the city of Dixon, where he had lived since joining the company in 1980. Tom Shaw, chief executive officer of Shaw Media, said this was a tough day at our com-

pany offices. â€œTears of sorrow, as well as smiles of fond memories, abounded in the offices where those of us who labored closest with Phil still do.â€? Shaw remembers Metka as an individual who exercised his authority in wise, considerate, compassionate, and responsible expressions of Biblical meekness ... that is, strength under discipline. â€œQuite honestly,â€? Shaw reflected, â€œI canâ€™t say how Phil was able to be the leader that he was. I believe all motivation and behavior is quite
complicated and deeply personal. But, I do know what I observed. â€œWe saw a man with power and strength who put the good of the company, and that of others, ahead of his own interest. All of us are better for it today because of the time we had with Phil. He was a great mentor.â€? Phil was active in countless civic organizations. He was past president of the Dixon Petunia Festival Corp. and of the Dixon Rotary Club, where he earned the Paul Harris Fellow Award. He also was involved with the
Dixon Area Chamber of Commerce, the Dixon Athletic Booster Club and CASAâ€™s 15th Judicial Circuit. Phil and Nancy, his wife of 52 years, moved to Washington after his retirement. While there, his passion for community service continued. He volunteered at Threads, Hope and Love in Washington and was a member of the Washington Rotary Club, as well as St. Patrickâ€™s Catholic Church. He was an avid golfer, and a big sports fan in general. Nancy survives, along with his daughter, Stacey (Jeff) Little, also of Washington, and his son, Dan (Kelly) Metka of Woodstock, Georgia; seven grandchildren, Brittany Metka, Stefanie (Alan) El-Darazi, Jacy Little, Taylor Little, Baylie Little, Lawson Metka, and Phillip Metka; one greatgranddaughter, Patricia Bick; and two brothers, Jimmy (Lennie) Metka of Philadelphia, and Joseph (Emily) Metka of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
