Among the recruit targets taking on the Warrior Dash on Saturday in Channahon was Sgt. Hayley Clayton (second from right) of Dixon, with the 333rd Military Police Company in Freeport. The Illinois National Guard Recruiting Program collaborated with Action Sports Program in using the event to recruit potential soldiers. The grueling obstacle course is between 3 and 4 miles long with 12 obstacles. The participants ran much of the course, and hiked though the woods, creeks, and hills before finishing the obstacle course with a large muddy pit at the bottom of the goliath water slide. "I enjoy the tough obstacles," Clayton said. "Once or twice a year, I sign up for these obstacle courses." Just ahead of Clayton are (left) Staff Sgt. Mark D. Brienen of Bloomington, with Recruiting and Retention Battalion; and Spc. Andrew J. Stoltz of Morris, with the Headquarters and Headquarters Troop 2nd Squadron, 106th Cavalry in Kewanee.

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.
