Pilot recalls emergency landing, opens up about life after the crash

The event changed his life but not who he is as a person. Last Wednesday marked the five-year anniversary of what became known internationally as the “Miracle on the Hudson,” when an airliner filled with passengers lost power after striking a flock of geese and made an emergency landing on New York’s Hudson River off mid-town Manhattan. All 150 passengers and five crewmembers of the US Airways Airbus escaped the incident without serious injury, including Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III and first officer and co-pilot Jeff Skiles, an Oregon resident. Skiles, his wife, Barbara, and their three children have lived in Oregon for 20 years. He had never talked extensively with local media about the incident or its aftermath until last week, when he spoke with the Observer by telephone

from Oshkosh, where Skiles works for the Experimental Aircraft Association, or EAA, an international organization that encourages and supports sport aviation and flying for recreation. “Things settled down fairly quickly after the actual event, although my life and the lives of the people involved were changed

forever,” Skiles said.

Long recovery

The emergency landing on the Hudson River and the things that led to it all happened in a matter of minutes and were relatively easy to recover from, Skiles observed. But the media hype around the event, as well

as the months-long investigation into it, caused stress and took more of a psychological toll, he said. Skiles added that the strong, loving support of his family, and the fact that the Oregon community allowed him privacy, helped to restore a sense of normality that was very important. “One thing that I found

was really unusual is that outside of Oregon people would come up and want my autograph or want to take a photo with me, or they’d ask invasive questions,” he recalled. “But in Oregon, it was almost like it was hands off for me. “I’ve never gone anywhere in the community and had anybody bother me at all,” he added. “They know who I am, because I’ll walk into a business and I don’t know the person there and they’ll say, ‘Hi Jeff.’ But nobody in Oregon has ever

The winter weather of 2013-14 is taking a toll on the village’s supply of road salt. Public works director Mark Below told the Village Board on Monday that the village had used its entire supply of salt by “around the first of the year,” and since then he’s purchased another 270 tons. After the village used its usual annual allotment of road salt – 460 tons – “we ordered another 150 ton and we got that and started mixing it with sand,” Below told the Observer. “And now this last week we were lucky enough to get another 110-120 ton of salt and of course we’re mixing that with sand, too, but it sounds like that could be all we’re going to get.” He said the frequent small snowfalls of just an inch or two this winter have used up lots of salt. He also cited the freezing rain that happened in December and again a couple of weeks ago, following the retreat of the

Salt: Village now adding sand

That amount will typically be enough for a winter season. Salt usually sells for $60 to $64 per ton; the price to resupply the village was on the high end of that cost because of increased demand this winter. Village road crews began using a 50/50 mix of salt and sand after Jan. 1 in an attempt to make the salt go further, Below said.

He directed employees to use salt sparingly and stop spreading it on the entire stretch of village streets and instead use it at intersections and other strategic locations. “We’re applying it a little more on the major corridors and trying to keep them as clear as possible,” he said, “and then on side streets we’re just doing the stop signs and hills, of course.” The village uses four dump trucks with snowplows on the front and salters attached to the rear, as well as one five-ton pickup, to clear roads and spread salt and sand. Below explained that the village buys salt through a consortium of municipalities. Each year, long before the snow flies, the village reserves its allotment of salt. Salt is mass-produced by evaporation of seawater or brine from brine wells and salt lakes. Mining of rock salt is also a major source. China is the world’s main supplier of salt, followed by the United States. Below said most of the salt that’s used in Wisconsin comes via freighters on the Great Lakes and is dumped to form “a mountain of salt” in Milwaukee. From there, it’s typically distributed to municipalities throughout the state by truck.

Skiles was 49 years old and piloting US Airways Flight 1549 on Thursday, Jan. 15, 2009, as it left New York City’s LaGuardia Airport. Just 90 seconds after takeoff, at an elevation of about 3,000 feet, the plane carrying 150 passengers and five crewmembers collided with a flock of Canada geese, disabling both engines. As the aircraft’s flight engineer and first officer, Skiles turned the plane’s controls over to Capt. Sullenberger. Skiles, who at the time had worked for US Airways for 24 years, said it was his first time flying an Airbus and he’d recently completed training to operate the airliner. It was also the first time he’d flown with Sullenberger. “I didn’t know Sully, but I knew exactly what he would do in any set of circumstances, and that’s how we interacted with each other,” he said. “We take the personalities out of it and surround ourselves with procedure.” While Sullenberger flew the plane and communicated with air traffic controllers about possible places to land the powerless airliner, Skiles scoured his emergency checklist for ways to regain power and consider other steps to take under the circumstances. Under normal conditions, having two pilots in the cockpit is useful because “we have two sets of eyes and two brains to crosscheck everything so that we can cut down on errors,” Skiles said. But in an emergency, the protocol changes. “When we have an emergency situation, we kind of split duties,” Skiles explained. “One person flies the airplane while the other tries to handle the emergency – in this case, trying to make sure that we have both hydraulic and electric power and trying to possibly restart

All 150 passengers were able to exit safely from Flight 1549 after the plane hit a flock of geese during takeoff. Skiles credited the teamwork of the crew and modern tactics rather than a miracle.

the engines. “And that’s assigned by two words: Sully said, ‘My aircraft.’ That meant he was going to take over flying the airplane, which is his prerogative as the captain, but it also meant that I instantly became a troubleshooter.” In a National Public Radio interview last week on the anniversary of the event, Sullenberger noted that Skiles was the better person to handle the emergency checklist because he had recently finished training and studying emergency responses. “That’s very valid thinking, because literally when I went through training I had conducted this particular procedure just two weeks before on the simulator,” Skiles said. The entire incident happened in less than four minutes. Sullenberger managed to avoid catastrophe by landing the Airbus in the icy waters of the Hudson River. He put the plane down just minutes by boat from Manhattan’s commuter ferry terminals, enabling rescuers to quickly recover all passengers and crew from the lifeboats they had boarded. At the time, aviation experts said they could not recall another successfully controlled water landing by a commercial airliner in the United States. The flight crew was ordered not to talk publicly about the ordeal until the National Transportation Safety Board had completed its investigation. Like the rest of the crew, Skiles suffered from posttraumatic stress after the incident. He had trouble sleeping for a couple of weeks and quickly lost 20 pounds. But, he points out, there were no long-term negative effects. He didn’t develop a fear of flying and still flies regularly.

Contrary to the media hype and the notions of some in the public, the successful landing was not a miracle, Skiles said. Rather, it was the result of intensive training, a professional crew following protocol, and “kind of a revolutionary shift in how we think in aviation” in the past 20 years. “We started saying, let’s look at how the people operate. Let’s look at how people interact with each other,” he explained. “Instead of having individuals in the cockpit, let’s have a team in the cockpit. And really that’s the biggest difference.” He compared it to the teamwork of a professional football team. Skiles said in the aviation world, the event was viewed as an example of not what went wrong, but what went right. “We used the training and the tools and procedures that had been developed by a living, breathing safety organization over the course of the last 15 or 20 years,” he said. “Sully and I would use that as sort of the end product.” He noted that US Airlines alone had five major accidents between 1989 and 1994. “Since then, they haven’t had one at all,” he said, and pointed out that the last fatal accident of a major carrier in the United States was in 2001. Skiles asserted that when people understand the industry changes that took place and know about the hard work that went into them, the miracle myth “is kind of stripped away.” He found it peculiar that after it happened, “so many people seemed to identify personally with this event who had absolutely nothing to do with it. You know, people who watched it on TV. “People see things in a situation or in people that they look at to validate their own beliefs,” he continued. “It’s kind of odd when you’re on the other side and people are coming up to you and for whatever reason, the incident meant more to them than it did to you – and you were there.”

Skiles has been on a leave of absence from US Airways since the incident. He chose to take the time off to pursue other aspects of the industry, and served as vice president of an airline pilots association that lobbies in Washington, D.C.,

for airline safety. Like his partner in history, Sullenberger, shortly after the emergency landing Skiles accepted speaking engagements around the country. “Both Sully and I recognized and used the visibility that this has afforded us to work for the good of our profession,” he said. “Sully continues to do that by being on TV talking about safety issues and using his tremendous visibility to advance airline safety issues. I actually got myself elected to be the vice president of an organization called the Coalition of Airline Pilots Association, which represents about 28,000 pilots in this country.” Skiles worked with the association for two years and then accepted a job with the EAA in Oshkosh, where he is vice president of chapters and youth education. “I travel around the country speaking on behalf of the EAA,” he said. His leave from US Airways will expire in a year or so, at which point he’ll have to decide whether to return to professional flying or continue on his current path. He hasn’t decided yet, but seems to be heading back to the grueling schedule of a commercial airline pilot. “I can tell you that I’m an airline pilot,” he said. “That’s what I’ve been my whole life; it’s what my selfimage is. And it’s going to be hard to walk away from what I am.” Professional pilots typically are away from home four days per week and then are off for three days. It’s a career that presents challenges to family life and the pilots themselves. “You live almost in a state of permanent exhaustion because you have constantly rotating schedules and limited opportunity for sleep,” Skiles said. If he decides to return to his former job, it will be a little easier now that two of his kids are grown and living away from home, while his third is a junior at Oregon High School. “I am very fortunate to have a wife who understands that because that’s the way it’s always been. I’ve been a pilot for our entire marriage, and one way or another, you’re gone a lot.” At 54, Skiles is aware that “I certainly don’t have as many years ahead of me as I do behind me. I’ve been thinking about how I want to live the rest of my life – and I’m an airline pilot. That’s my view of myself.”

Chamber sparks excitement, gives awards to area businesses
Unified Newspaper Group

Franciska Anderson has had a tough few years. From both of her parents passing away to dealing with shingles and breast cancer, it hadn’t been easy for her to keep her acupuncture business going all the time. But Saturday she will receive the Oregon Area Chamber of Commerce’s President’s Award, which she called an “honor” to even be considered for. “To be chosen for the president’s award this year was a mark of a new beginning, a new year,” Anderson said. “I feel like I’m the phoenix coming out of the ash

and rebuilding. I very much appreciate being chosen.” Chamber president Erin Peterson said she chose Anderson, who owns Pivotal Point Acupuncture and Wellness, due to her “incredible” and difficult year and how she kept her “thriving business” alive throughout trying circumstances. “I can think of no one more deserving than Fran,” Peterson said. Executive director Judy Knutson also had praise for Anderson. “She cares about her patients one-by-one, she looks at who needs what and she’s very compassionate that way,” Knutson said. “She’s very good at what she

does.” That’s one of the awards the chamber will hand out at its annual awards night. Another Anderson is the Longtime Service to the Community Award, which will go to David Mastos of DLM Financial Strategies. Mastos has long served the community, helping the Chamber to set up and take down Summer Fest, offering his truck for moving large items and “anything we need,” Knutson said. He also is finishing his sixth consecutive year on

The Village Board gave the go-ahead last week to make way for more duplexes and multifamily buildings in the Bergamont subdivision. The plan – a scaled back version of what was presented earlier last year – calls for up to 48 new apartments along Bergamont Boulevard near Jefferson Street. The new plan rezones about six acres for apartments, and it has larger commercial lots along Jefferson Street and larger duplex lots near Drumlin Drive than the previous plan, which had called for 56 apartment units. The board approved the plan 6-1, with Trustee David Donovan casting the lone no vote. Donovan said his neighbors had concerns about more apartments being built in the area. The village’s Planning Commission had recommended the plan unanimously a month earlier. Fiduciary Real Estate Development – owner of the Bergamont – had requested in November to have more of the area be available for multi-family living spaces. Those plans were met with opposition by neighbors and

Letters to the editor

Reelect Mixdorf to Oregon school board
Wayne Mixdorf will get my vote in the Feb. 18 Oregon School Board primary election and deserves yours too. Let me explain why: I am a retired Oregon High School teacher, coach, former sports administrator, Badger Conference Commissioner, longtime resident of this community and a grandparent with grandkids currently in the Oregon School District. Our schools are among the best in the state because, as a community, we understand the value of high quality education, forwardlooking administrators, creative, and talented educators, and fiscal responsibility. We need to keep leaders on the Oregon School Board, like Wayne, who value this tradition, have the skills and experience needed to lead us into the future, and whose only agenda is giving our kids the best education possible. I have known Wayne for a very long time. He has lived here for 27 years, has kids who have recently graduated from OHS, and with his professional experience as a retired career executive manager and clinical social worker, he is an experienced advocate for learning. Over the last three years on the board, Wayne has shown that he is dedicated, fair, and a champion of providing our kids with exceptional and innovative academic opportunities. He has provided the district with three years of positive experiences dealing with the many educational challenges of today. My grand =kids have a bright future in the Oregon School District, especially when we vote for incumbents running for re-election to the Oregon School Board. Let’s get it started in the Feb. 18 primary by voting for Wayne Mixdorf. Tom Mueller Village of Oregon

See something wrong?

Prepare for a powerful turning point this year S
day, no matter how small. If we focus on a sense of loss, failure or ineptitude, it can overwhelm our thinking and allow a negative energetic flow to influence us. By turning our minds to something neutral or positive, we invite a better energy to flow through our body. When we are tired, exhausted and feeling beaten down, staying in a positive mind frame is no easy task. There is good news, too. The full moon in May will mark a significant time in our history. This is when all the Piscean energy is replaced with the Aquarian energy. The first Aquarian energy started coming into the system in 1906, and we saw the impact of that energy enter humanity’s consciousness in the 1960s. Since then, the energy switch has continued until we reach the full moon in May, when the transition is complete. At that point, the only energy that will be available to us is the Aquarian. To fully understand the significance of this, one must look at the qualities of the Piscean and Aquarian. Piscean energy supported individualism. Individual growth, individual power and all other individualized efforts and learning. Aquarian is about group effort. Shared power, shared wealth, an even distribution of resources for all to have a better life, not just one person or one group. Goodwill for all is the keynote. So we are going from one extreme to the other, albeit over a long period of time. Because this energy is unseen to the naked eye, it takes some imagination to understand that all physical matter is supported by energy and energy has a huge influence over how we feel. How we feel affects how we think. Our thinking affects our actions, etc. This changeover to a new energy is a big deal. This is why we, as spiritual beings, must not lose our focus. We must press on by continuing to embrace the qualities of the new energy and not slide into “poor me” or “I can’t do this anymore” attitudes. The world needs us to stay strong and keep moving forward with our thinking, actions, and attitudes. Keep engaged with life, our communities, and have a willingness to embrace the new stuff coming our way. Be joyful when we are challenged to let even more things go - old attitudes, old beliefs, even old things in the closets! We can’t know what the new energies will bring us. We are challenged to trust that things will be better, that our efforts are not in vain. We matter, and we can do this together. So let us join together in heart and mind and move forward with steadfastness, grace and courage to the full moon in May. Doris Diets is the owner of Peaceful Heart Gifts in Oregon.

4-H member attends National 4-H Congress, does service work
Observer Correspondent

Brooklyn Mighty Mites 4-H club president and OHS senior Mariah Martin was one of approximately 50 students from Wisconsin at the 91st National Congress in Atlanta last month. The conference, which ran from Nov. 29 through Dec. 3, included plenary sessions, seminars, discussion groups, guest speakers and service learning experiences for all who attended. Martin called her trip “an incredible experience,” as she met other 4-H youth from around the country, toured the city of Atlanta and volunteered at an elementary school outside of the city. “It was a great experience being able to give back to the community of Atlanta,”

Martin said. “The kids were great, hard-working, smart and super sweet.” In addition to giving back, Martin attended seminars that focused on leadership, social media, 4-H programs and learning how to be the Martin best person she could be, and how to use those skills to benefit herself, her 4-H club, her community and her world. Martin also listened to speakers that included Miss America, who spoke on accomplishing one’s own dreams, the value of hard work and overcoming obstacles. In addition to her 4-H work, Martin was also able to see the CNN Headquarters, Olympic Park, Atlanta History Center and stay at a hotel in the middle of downtown

Atlanta. Martin said she was incredibly excited for the trip once she found out she’d been accepted because of all the good things she’d heard about it from those who had gone before her. “I knew going into it that it would be a great opportunity for me and that I would have tons of fun and learn many new things that I could take back to Wisconsin,” she said.

McCann earns Eagle Scout honor crafting picnic tables
A local Boy Scout earned his Eagle Scout award this summer. Tayler McCann, a 2013 graduate of Oregon High School, reached the highest honors in scouting and was recognized in July by Boy Scout Troop 168 with the presentation of Eagle Badge by former Scoutmaster, Brian DeBaker. Scoutmaster Dave Skibba also spoke at the ceremony. McCann’s final project was organizing and building picnic tables for Habitat for Humanity. McCann, son of Tom and Lori McCann, coordinated the project with Arlan Kay of Oregon and Ben Delzer from Habitat for Humanity. He led a crew of six scouts from Troop 168 at his home in building and staining three picnic tables. He delivered the tables to the Brooklyn Habitat for Humanity site. The people working on the homes used them and were then given to the people moving into the homes. Tayler began his journey as a Tiger and moved through the ranks. He left a lot of memories with fellow scouts, including a Key West trip and a Boundary Waters. He spent many summers at Camp Castle Rock, where he earned several of his 27 merit badges. His crafting rubbed off on many scouts and friends where he shared his talent of making his famous duct tape wallets and creating knit hats on a loom. McCann was honored at a gathering with family and friends.

We Learn From Our Mistakes We hear the advice to learn from our mistakes so often that it almost seems a cliché, but perhaps we need to push this advice a bit further. Isn’t it the case, after all, that we learn most when we make mistakes? We send children to school for twelve long years, expecting they will make plenty of mistakes, but knowing they will learn to read and write and do math and science better by continually improving on their mistakes. In medicine nowadays, common mistakes are taught in medical schools, so that new doctors and nurses might avoid them. In some areas, mistakes are sought after as portals of discovery. In jazz music, the so-called “blue note” or what seems a clear mistake, is often the start of an inspired improvisation. Poets too seek the “blue note” in language, the place where a mistake in usage or grammar leads to some insight or a nice turn of phrase. A genius is not necessarily someone who makes fewer mistakes, but rather someone whose mistakes are often productive or beautiful. So, we should learn from our mistakes, but perhaps more importantly, risk making mistakes in order that we might grow and learn. – Christopher Simon via Metro News Service “For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.” Proverbs 24:16

Offense breaks out to snap losing streak

Oregon falls flat on home ice
Panthers struggle in all facets of game against third-ranked Wildcats
Sports editor

Oregon boys hockey coach Rick Fleming did mince words following Tuesday evening’s 7-1 loss at home against Verona. “I was very confident going into tonight’s game,” said Fleming, who saw his team play tentative, and struggle to win battles all over the ice. “... I thought we had spurts where we looked OK, but from the goaltending out, we were really bad tonight.” Verona senior forward Harry Seid scored a whirling goal from

the crease just over three-and-a-half minutes into the first period. But it was senior captain Charlie Parker’s wristshot from the blueline seven seconds later that sealed the Panthers’ fate. Yet it was the second period where the Wildcats (13-1-2) were able to distance themselves from Oregon. Looking for a spark in net, the host Panthers pulled senior goaltender Zach Jordan in favor of freshman Henry Roskos. In the end though, it didn’t really matter who was in goal as the thirdranked Wildcats looked every bit as good as advertised. “I was really very proud of this group early in the year,” Fleming said. “As proud of them as I was early in the year, I was really disappointed tonight. “We’re not working hard right now or playing with any passion.”

While Oregon went 0-for-4 on the power play, the Wildcats scored on their first three-man advantage opportunities, finishing 3-for-4 on the game. Junior forward Brodie Roehrig accounted for one of those, tipping in one of two shots in from of the Panthers’ goal. Parker added two more goals for Verona in the win. Oregon’s lone goal came with the Panthers already down 7-0 in the third period when senior Zach Miller went hard to net, colliding with and driving the puck past Wildcat goaltender Alex Jones, who finished with 16 saves. Jordan (12) and Roskos (11) split time in goal, combining for 23 saves. “Tomorrow we’re going to work out butts off because we didn’t tonight,” Fleming said. “We have too many in this locker room that are playing scared and not competing the

way you need to compete in order to beat a good team.” The Panthers head to Hartmeyer Ice Arena at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday with the Badger South Conference title hanging in the balance. Both Oregon (10-6-1) and the Silver Eagles (13-3-0 overall) are tied atop the conference with identical 5-1-0 records. Monona Grove got the better of the meeting earlier this season, rolling Oregon 7-0 on the Panthers’ home ice.

After losing three straight Badger South Conference games by a combined five points, the Oregon High School boys basketball team finally was able to break through against non-conference Randolph last Friday. The Panthers (6-7 overall, 2-5 Badger South) had three players reach double digits, and they grabbed an 11-point lead early and was able to quell a few runs by Randolph en route to a 52-42 win. Oregon was up six after three quarters and closed Randolph out with a 16-12 advantage in the final quarter. Junior forward Markus Tobias led Oregon with 11 points, while junior forward Josh Sromovsky added 10. Senior forward Andrew McCauley also scored 10 points. Randolph was led by senior forward Kyle Roberts with 12 points. The Panthers continue the season at 6 p.m. Friday against Waunakee at the Badger Challenge at DeForest High School.

Monroe 38, Oregon 37

Oregon 4, McFarland 1

Zach Miller, Cole Hefty, Joe Andriacchi and Nick Strycharske scored in a 4-1 Badger Conference win last Thursday inside the McFarland Community Ice Arena. The loss dropped the Spartans to 3-10-0 overall and 1-4-0 in conference.

T h e P a n t h e r s c o n t i nued to fall a little short of a conference win with a 38-37 loss last Thursday against Monroe at home. The Panthers battled back from a 10-point halftime deficit to get within a basket late in the fourth, but the shot wouldn’t fall. Tobias led Oregon with nine points, while senior guard Shaw Storey added seven. Senior guard Jon Conduah, junior guard Mitch Morhoff and Sromovsky all chipped in six points.

Marsh earns a hat trick in win over Viroqua
Stoughton junior Casey Marsh scored twice just under six minutes apart as part of a four-goal first period by the Icebergs on Friday. Marsh later capped her hat trick in the third period as the visiting MSO Icebergs sank Viroqua 8-1. Oregon’s Tasha Martin, Savannah Kopf, Stoughton’s Rachel Dvorak and Samantha Kinsler all added goals. Having not seen a shot on goal through two periods, Jochmann said junior goaltender Kenzie Torpy was simply caught off guard on the Blackhawks’ fastbreak goal by Molly Berg at the end. Torpy made zero saves in the blowout, while Viroqua’s Bree Rodriguez kicked aside 25. The Icebergs (11-6-2 overall, 4-1-1 Badger Conference) travel to Pierce Park in Baraboo for a 7:30 p.m. game against the conference rival Badger Thunder (5-7-1, 1-3-1) on Friday. Stoughton follows that up a day later inside the McFarland Ice Arena against the fifthranked Onalaska Hilltoppers (9-3-0). Though the MSO Icebergs and Middleton Metro Lynx have developed into one of the top girls hockey rivalries in the Badger Conference, there will be more than hockey on everyone’s mind when the two teams drop the puck Tuesday, Jan. 28 inside the Mandt Community Center. Having wanted to do some sort of fundraiser, Torpy and her mom decided to help organize a breast cancer awareness night, they will be call “Pink the Rink.” “I think everyone has been affected by breast cancer or some type of cancer somehow,” Torpy said. “Most girls are playing in honor of someone they know who has battled or is battling breast cancer. “It seemed like a fun way to raise a lot of money for research, as well as honor victims and survivors of breast cancer,” she added. Though she came up with the idea, Torpy said, lots of her teammates are helping to organize the event by coming up with new ideas of things to do and being proactive in getting donations. There will be a raffle and Chuck-aduck in order to raise money. “We will also have a donation box out

during our game so anyone can choose to donate to the cause,” Torpy said. “Our goal is to raise $1,000 and all the money raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.”

CW Storm 2, Icebergs 0

Boys BB: Panthers edge
Milton, 2-5 in Badger South
Continued from page 7 fourth with a 24-11 advantage, but Oregon’s 16-4 start was too much for Milton to overcome. Tobias led the Panthers with 17 points, while Conduah added 16. Milton was led by seniors Noah Johnson and Tyler Hammil with 14 and 10 points, respectively.

After a very lopsided win Friday night, the Icebergs ran into a very talented Central Wisconsin team with a lot of different scoring threats. Outshot 44-8, the Icebergs watched the Storm roll 2-0 inside Greenheck Fieldhouse in Schofield. Emily Bauer and Megan Marlowe scored for the second-ranked Storm, which improved to 15-3-1 on the year with the win. Torpy finished with 42 saves in the loss, while Central Wisconsin’s Lisa Fowle had eight. “Kenzie was tested in goal throughout the game, and kept us within striking distance on the scoreboard for most of the game,” Jochmann said. “Unfortunately, getting out of our defensive end and through the neutral zone was a challenge, as they do a nice job of backchecking and playing tough in 50/50 battle situations.”

Larsen picks up two wins, help 200 free relay take first
Jacob Larsen won two individual events and helped the Oregon/Belleville boys swimming team’s 200-yard freestyle to victory at Milton. Despite Larsen’s efforts, however, the Panthers fell 114-56 against the Blackhawks last Thursday. Larsen touched out Alex Kerig by a little more than one-tenth of a second in the 200-yard freestyle with his time of 1 minute, 58.21 seconds. The Oregon underclassmen later posted a second individual victory in the 100 free (53.09). Josh Greene, Jackson Marsden and Eli Rule joined Larsen on the victorious 200 free relay (1:38.54). “I tried to mix things up a little bit to see what some guys could do in events they haven’t swam much this season,” head coach Scott Krueger said. “The results were good from an individual point of view but as a team we fill a little short of competing for the win.” Once again depth played an issue. But over all, it was a pretty good meet for Oregon, which finished with 18 best times. Hussein Badren, swimming in only his second meet, posted a season-best in the 50 free. Ryan Wood and Gregersen led a 1-2 finish by Oregon in the JV 100 breast. The Panthers’ JV team fell 76-22. Other individual bests were turned into by James Lemke (50 free, 100 butterfly), Brad Rehrauer (50 backstroke, 100 butterfly), Eli Rule (200 IM, 500 free), David Heim (50 free, 100 free), Ryan Wood (200 free, 100 breaststroke), Chris Foster (500 free), Mathias Gregerson (100 breast), Jacob Larsen (100 free), Jackson Marsden (100 fly), Ryan Mckirdy (100 free), Sam Phelps (200 IM) and Jonas Temte (50 free).

Lincoln The society’s hours are Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the first Saturday of month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (September - May) and Saturdays in June, July and August.

Bartlett Hill was cut down by five feet and the material from there was used as filling along the road at the Black farm, raising that hollow nearly three feet. The Frank Dreher Hill was cut three feet and the Hobbs Hill was lowered one and half feet. This made the grading eady for gravel or crushed stone. • The Oregon Business Men’s Club, which had been semi-dormant for the past two years, opened a new room above the printing office on Main Street.

Those awarded 10-year plaques and service pins were Jean Brown, Charles Curran, Mary Curran, Phil Dettwiler, Cheryl Endicott, Beverly Lance, Pam Mather, Sue Newton, Ralph Roddel, Carol Webb and Vonnie Williams. Dr. Zorba Paster, Medical Director for the local district, was given special recognition. • The OHS boys’ basketball team started their season with a 62-52 victory over Madison East. Later in the month they were to go on to win their fourth straight Holiday Tournament with victories over Monroe, Portage and Madison Edgewood. Head coach Roger Pribbenow noted that he had seven returning lettermen this year: Ed Gnewuch, Ben Conklin, Derek Schaefer, Brad Lindsley, Steve Merry, Mike Jones and Wade Muench. • The Democratic presidential ticket of Dukakis and Bentsen wins locally over the Republican ticket of Bush and Quayle: Village of Oregon 1113-907; Village of Brooklyn 108-45.
