Eastern county coverage is lacking in paper

Published: Thursday, March 6, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

This is in regard to the article “SVM Scouts 1A Boys Basketball Regionals” in the Feb. 24 issue. If you had done your homework, you would know that Justin Wiley and Zach Lilja are not on the Paw Paw team.

They both graduated last year and have moved on to college ball. Nicholas Siemers is on the team, and if he was included in the area leaders, he would be the leading scorer and would be toward the top of the rebound, steals, and assist list. You have missed a very good ball player all season.

You seem to forget that Lee County extends past an Amboy-to-Ashton line. Very seldom do you cover Paw Paw, Compton or West Brooklyn.

There was a major house fire in Compton awhile back that the Dixon ladder truck helped at, and not one word in your paper. I guess Whiteside, Ogle and Carroll counties are more important than your own county.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
