“The Report”
The Jail As
House and Home
By James Middleton
There was an age over a century ago had governments
building prisons to resemble castles. Boone County was
once graced with such a building. The photograph shown
here was of the former Boone County Jail before the
architecture of the “modern world” became permanently
altered with straight lines, sharp angles, glass and steel and
flat surfaces. We could attribute some of these architectural
design feature to the influence of the Bauhaus theory of
architectural expression that flourished from 1919 through
1933 before the school disappeared. The title “Bauhaus”
translated from German to mean “construction house” and
the title also came to mean, “School of Building.”
The building shown here did not conform to the
Bauhaus theory of architectural design but rather, harkened
to a different visual approach to housing construction that
would serve as a house and a home. Grace is one word
that could be applied to the visual interpretation of this
structure. Some might consider the thought incongruous
to attach the word “grace” to a structure that was built to
house those who have broken the law. Yet, in addition to
detainees, this building also served as the home for the
Boone County Sheriff during that late 19th Century era.
The structure served the needs of Boone County until the
city/county public safety building was built. That building
was later followed by the current jail that was built in the
late 20th century. Boone County taxpayers are still paying
off the bonds that were sold to fund the construction of the
current jail. The outer appearance of the current county jail
looks nothing like this magnificent structure.
The turret on the corner of the old jail is of particular
note. Turrets, though they were popular a century ago,
have gone the way of ornate mantles, carved spiral railings
and captain’s walks. Those architectural features are
today, nonexistent. This building did contain a captain’s
walk that can be noted with the wrought iron railings at the
summit of the building.
This building was located for many decades on Main
Street next door to the Boone County Courthouse. Some
might comment at the misfortune that this building with
its two majestic stories and curved window frames was
replaced by the nondescript edifice that stands in its place
today. Note the gentle curve of the window frames. The
number of windows found in the old jail building were
more than sufficient to allow sunlight to –penetrate what
would have been considered such a dark use of a building.
The building does seem to ramble on and on with almost
no end in sight. But, one might expect such a structure that
was designed to provide so many multiple uses.
For example, the former County Jail also held the
offices of the Boone County Sheriff. There was also office
and storage space for the Sheriff’s equipment and for
that which was used by any of his deputies. There was
sufficient space for the county jail that might have included
only a very few cells. Then too, the building also had to
provide living space for the sheriff and his family. The
Sheriff’s family actually did live in the same building as
the jail. Also, one of the side duties of the Sheriff and their
family was that they too had to provide the food that was
fed to those who were incarcerated.
The former Boone County Sheriff’s offices and County
Jail was not a “Bauhaus” inspired structure. To have
been such a building, the former County Jail would have
banished the multifaceted turret and replaced that with a
curved turret but without the crown at the summit. Further,
the window frames and molding would have replaced the
gentle curvature for a sharp rectangular frame with squared
90°angles. Further, the wall surfaces would have been flat
with likely made from smoothed concrete instead of the
multi-layered brick work that identified the outer surface
of the building.
The architect Mies van der Rohe is likely the best known
architect who implemented some of the characteristics
of the Bauhaus in America even though he was claimed
to have repudiated the politics of the Bauhaus and their
architectural approach. It was written that the ultimate goal
of the Bauhaus architects was to create “worker housing”
for the Weimar era in Germany that followed the German
defeat in World War I.
The former Boone County Sheriff’s headquarters
and Jail was a majestic building. The turret, the accents
to the upper corners of the structure, the captain’s walk,
the curvature of the windows all harkened to a vision of
architecture that paid homage to an artistic approach that
went beyond a desire to create “worker housing.” The
former sheriff’s home, headquarters and county jail was
a structure that marked a site as unique within the city.
However, as often is the case, the building served a use
for a lengthy period then a new collection of elected and
appointed officials in Belvidere and Boone County chose a
new direction for their perception of use and vision. Such
is the case with the artistic vision being replaced by the
functional with hardly a moment’s thought or consideration
of what might have been lost.
The Journal wants to thank the Boone County Historical
Society for allowing use of this photograph. We also want
to recognize that a number of sites within the Wikipedia.
com network were used for background material used to
write this piece.
By James Middleton
Since early this year, the focus in Boone County has
been captured by a potential railroad that could come
through the area. Meetings have been held, letters to the
editor have been written and it appears that many in the
community have drawn an opinion on the matter before
a federal committee, the Surface Transportation Board
(STB), has had a chance to gather and to analyze evidence
associated with one of three possible options.
The STB will analyze evidence and some members
of the Boone County Board appear to have made their
decision before the final date for reports to be filed with the
STB that will be considered as part of their analysis. That
end date for delivering reports to the STB arises on June
15 and the Boone County Board is now preparing a formal
report that will be delivered by that date.
The STB has one of three possible decisions to make.
The first possible decision is to approve a route and a plan
that has been developed by the railroad, the Great Lakes
Basin Transportation, LLC. A second possible decision
would be to deny the initial plan. A third possible decision
is for the STB to approve an alternative plan that might
propose a different route or to propose an alternate plan for
the railroad to be created.
The Chairman of the Boone County Board, Bob
Walberg (District 1) and the Boone County administrator,
Ken Terrinoni, huddled together this week to draft a
preliminary report that could be shaped into a final report
and delivered to the County Board for approval in their
Wednesday meeting. Mr. Walberg was critical of media
reports that surfaced after a County Board retreat that
occurred last Thursday. The purpose of that meeting was
for the members of the County Board to read and accept or
reject what was delivered as a summary report from each
of the May County Board committee meetings where the
question of the potential railroad was discussed.
Mr. Walberg said, “When we look at what was reported,
we felt that conclusions have been drawn by the media that
just should not have been drawn.” He emphasized that
the reports from the County Board committees were all
relevant to the subject of the railroad. Mr. Walberg added,
“The conclusion of the local media was that the County
Board is opposed to the railroad,” and he emphasized that
the report that is being drafted is more pertinent to the
overall environment of Boone County and does not intend
to offer a blanket opposition to the plan.
Mr. Walberg had offered an alternate plan to the
proposed route that could allow for the railroad to be
installed but to employ a different path. This alternate
route gained acceptance from a number of County Board
members when the idea was presented in the committees
earlier this month.
Of those that spoke during the retreat, few spoke in favor
of the proposed rail route that is designed to offer an option
for some through trains to bypass the City of Chicago. The
opinion of Mr. Walberg and others on the County Board is
that the proposed route violates the intent and the language
found in the 1999 Boone County Comprehensive Plan and
the proposed route also would violate the current County
zoning law.
Mr. Walberg also emphasized that the STB must make
their decision based upon verifiable evidence. Soon,
after the June 15 deadline, the STB will engaged the
Environmental Protection Agency asking them to execute
an environmental study of the total proposed 278-mile path
that would run through parts of LaPorte, Porter and Lake
counties in Indiana. The counties of Kankakee, Grundy
and LaSalle in Illinois would also be crossed. Travelling
north from there through Lee, Ogle, touching the northern
most boundary of DeKalb County the route would then
head straight north through all of Boone County.
Mr. Walberg sought to emphasize that the physical
environment is only part of a total “environmental” study.
“We want to transmit to the STB our environmental study
and opinion on Boone County,” Mr. Walberg added. He
said that the county zoning code should be considered along
with the infrastructure and the possible economic detriment
or enhancement if the railroad pursues their proposed
path. “We will transmit a report of our environment,” Mr.
Walberg said.

As of this writing, Mr. Terrinoni had finished writing
a draft of the report that will be considered and likely
approved in the May County Board meeting Wednesday
night. It is expected that technical material that could also
be added later might be offered through a consultant and
the potential cost for that consultation would be known by
the county before the May meeting.
The County Board Chairman also said, “We don’t want
to deliver a bias in the report, we don’t want to look like
all we’re offering I a ‘No’ and an emotional answer.” Mr.
Walberg added, “We are concerned that if this proposed
plan and route is approved that the railroad would bypass
county zoning.”
The consensus result of the retreat meeting last week
was for the members of the County Board to approve the
path that Mr. Walberg and Mr. Terrinoni are pursuing. The
result of their work this week will be known and considered
in the Boone County Board May meeting on Wednesday
night. It is expected that The Journal will have a full report
of what occurred regarding the report that will be delivered
to the STB.
A Notice to Our Readers
Since May 1st, 1996 the Boone County
Journal has provided news content for this
community at no cost on the traditional
newsprint medium. We hope it has been
satisfactory. Over that time the use of
computers and the Internet has introduced a
second medium by which to deliver news
content. In that 20 year period the number
of locally owned business has continued to
diminish which in turn provided less
opportunity to sell advertising in the
Journal. Yet, we feel the need for quality
news content has never been greater in this
community and therefore have chosen to
charge a nominal fee ($12.99 per year) for
the convenience of internet delivery of news
content on our website beginning with the
April 29th issue. Our newsprint version will
remain free, as it always has been, for the
general public. Your interest in the Journal
is greatly appreciated and by doing this it
will allow us to improve what we do here at

2015 Audit
Preliminary
Given County Board
By James Middleton
The county audit occurs every year, by law, and
the results of the most recent venture into the world of
accounting was reported to the Boone County Board in
their May finance, salary and taxation committee meeting.
The members heard a presentation of the annual Boone
County Audit and this evaluation of the county financial
status reflected the condition in Fiscal Year 2015. Carla
Paschal a partner with Sekich of Rockford, the accounting
firm that for a number of years has conducted the county
audits, presented their evaluation.
Instead of reviewing the many pages of tables and
numbers and financial data, Ms. Paschal focused on the
“Independent Auditor’s Report” that established what
they had found after perusing the county financial records.
She opened, “The annual report here expresses the results
of the audit and we have found no misstatements in the
financial documents.”
She indicated one material change in the accounting
procedure of the county that resulted from a change in
the accounting principal. In the formal report, it was
written, “The County adopted GASB Statement No. 68,
Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions, during
the year ended November 30, 2015. The implementation
of this guidance resulted in changes in the pension related
liabilities, deferred inflows and outflows of resources, the
pension related expense, notes presented in the notes in the
basic financial statements and to the required supplementary
information. The effect of this change is disclosed in Note
12 to the financial statements. Our opinion is not modified
with respect to this matter.”
The reference to Note #12 disclosed the following:
“With the implementation of GASB Statement No. 68, the
County is required to retroactively record the net pension
liability and deferred outflows of resources and remove the
net pension obligation.”
Ms. Paschal noted, “Because of the change in
accounting principal, the number is larger than before. You
actually have a $1.3 million unrestricted net position and
that is a liability. However, you are in better shape than
other municipalities with police and fire pensions in worse
shape.”
The county administrator, Ken Terrinoni, went on to
discuss the condition of the county General fund at the end
of Fiscal 2015. The county General Fund is where most
county revenue is deposited and where most of the county
expenses are paid.
Mr. Terrinoni said, “In the General Fund results, we
ended with a negative $717,854. Earlier in that year we
were actually nearer a better than $800,000 deficit.” He
added that most of the county elected officials understood,
the primary reason for the deficit in 2015 was due to
unexpected high health insurance premiums and a serious
reduction in out of county detainees being housed in the
Boone County Jail. Since the Jail was finished, Boone
County has realized a positive revenue stream renting space
to other municipalities to hold their temporary detainees.
However, because more local detainees had been arrested
and awaited trial in 2015, the county had fewer cells to rent
thus diminishing the revenue.
Mr. Terrinoni also emphasized that the county audit
shows the county is in a strong net position with assets
and, “that is to our advantage for the bond people.” Over
the last couple years Boone County has enjoyed a strong
bond rating that has held the county in good stead with the
a reduced cost for the county to borrow money or to issue
bonds for capital improvements.
Ms. Paschal then spoke of two additional reports from
her firm. The firm issued two letters with one noting a
deficiency in the county operation due to the size of the
county. The question addressed was segregation of
activities for clearer reporting of financial activities. The
question relates to some county workers being involved in
multiple financial activities without another employee to
provide oversight.
Ms. Paschal noted this is a problem for smaller
counties, such as Boone because of the cost to hire
additional personnel. “You need to remove the chances
for inappropriate behavior but this lack of segregation
does exist here,” she added. The question of segregation
of financial activities has appeared in prior audits and Ms.
Paschal acknowledged the situation has improved.
A second letter related to board communication
activities. For example, some county accounts do not
have timely reports of accrued interest being added to
the account balance. Ms. Paschal said this policy did not
have a material impact on the account but it is a procedure
that was discovered and that they recommend to change.
Bidding procedures were also identified as an area where
changes could occur. Another question related to Boone
County not having a purchasing department responsible
for acquiring the needs of the county through organized
bidding opportunities.
Ms. Paschal added, “Many of the previously noted
comments from the prior year have been addressed with
many of the deficiencies being resolved.” She also spoke of
credit card policies with some cards holding high balances
for charging purposes. She suggested that the county could
consider obtaining a corporate type card that would hold
certain limitations on the user to avoid potential abuse.
Another area of concern suggested that the county

obtain new accounting
software.
The county
has for many years relied
on “Quick Books.” This
system has worked but
the system has limitations
for financial reporting and
forecasting. Ms. Paschal
noted that newer systems as
very costly but offer better
forecasting opportunities
and clearer reports. She
suggested the county
consider a change when
the funding is available.
Publishing the Fiscal
Year 2015 Boone County
audit could likely occur
just prior to the May Boone
County board meeting next
Wednesday.
The audit
is available through the
county website but the final
version still needs a final
review by Mr. Terrinoni.
He
told
committee
members that he needed to
take some time to review
the full report for clarity.
Those who want to review
the audit may do so by
accessing the material in
the Boone County website.

Slight-of-Hand
In America today, a group of people who make up perhaps 0.3% of the total estimated population of more than 317
million people in 2014, have captured the attention of the President and his Administration. The focus is so complete
he announced an order to all public schools requiring them to adopt a new policy regarding student behavior. Further,
the civil rights division of the Justice Department is ready to file complaints against districts that do not obey and the
education department is ready to remove federal funding from any district that does not comply.
One might question the degree of need for this response. However, it should be understood, there has been reason
for a long line of judicial decisions that have sought to root out racial, gender and sexual identity prejudice wherever
it has occurred. That response was needed when prejudicial behavior was found. However, one must consider that
an estimated 0.3% of the total population is the group that has been singled out by the President who are in need of
protection of their civil rights. The furor is about an order mandating that every school child who is conflicted about
their “gender” may use the restroom that conforms to their gender identification. The order appears to have been handed
down without in depth consideration of how the order will be implemented or how to manage potential conflicts with
the beliefs of the majority.
It is apparent that the Administration has not responded to questions that any of the remaining 99.7% of the estimated
population who might be offended by entering a restroom and finding someone of the opposite sex using the facility.
But, with the advent of this government’s ability to listen to all cellular telephone calls and to view all Internet messages,
privacy is an apparent archaic idea better suited to the 10th Century.
One unintended consequence of this focus is the President and his Administration are now freed from media attention
over their inability to materially improve the national economy. But, rehabilitating a disabled economy is hard work and
federal officials who languish in the “Beltway” do not engage in hard work.
Hard work is not an assignment that finds a bevy of volunteers from the ranks of elected or appointed officials in
Washington DC. Other than the stimulus bill in 2009, little has been done by Washington operatives to resolve the
chronic problems that are now endemic in this economy. The worst problems include stagnant wages, escalating taxes,
increasing federal, state and local rules and regulations and a focus on eliminating certain industries that are not in favor
with the legions of the “politically correct.”
The current economy had a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report for the first quarter of 2016, according to the
Bureau of Economic Analysis, at 0.5%. That is one-half of one percent of growth that expanded the economy in the
first three months of 2016. GDP growth in all of 1983 was 4.6%, in 1984, 7.3% and in 1985, GDP growth amounted to
4.2%. But, these growth rates were not limited to Republican Administrations.
In the latter years of the Clinton Administration, GDP growth amounted to 4.5% in 1997, 4.4% in 1998 and 4.7%
growth in 1999. These are impressive numbers as the economy flourished even though “Globalization” had begun to
alter world economic perspectives in response to the North American Free Trade Agreement that was enacted in 1994.
By 1999, some of the unintended consequences of that treaty were being felt.
If this current seething pace of economic growth sustains, the American economy could possibly grow at the
outrageous pace of 2% in 2016. The melody that is echoing in the background is, “Happy days are here again, the skies
above are clear again.”
Though the nation has escaped the most urgent effects of the “Great Recession” many nagging problems have
not disappeared. Manufacturing is recovering. Housing construction is showing signs of strength but is focused in
selected neighborhoods. Real estate prices have shown strength but again, there are areas where foreclosures are still
de-rigueur and the economies of those locales continue to suffer. According to Home Facts.com, the unemployment
rate in Belvidere hit 11.3% in January, 10% in February and remained static at 10% in March, 2016. Yet, local, state and
federal elected officials are doing anything about this disability except to mandate non-gender defined restrooms while
continuing to sit on their hands.
Nothing is occurring at any government level to repair the economy. In Springfield elected officials cannot enact
a budget for a second year. The prime worry in Boone County today is over a proposed railroad instead of to repair a
foundering economy. The Irene Road interchange was supposed to spur a boom in the local economy but the result more
resembles a sputtering firecracker than an explosion.
Repairing a disabled economy is hard work and most candidates running for office this year have no practical clue of
how to revitalize the economy. Instead, the President and his Administration continues to avoid hard work as they play
the back nine and mandate that boys can visit the girls room and vice-versa because 0.3% of the national population are
uncertain about who they are.
This is all a deception designed to avoid public scrutiny of the economy and to cover-up an inability at all levels to
resolve economic problems that have gone on almost eight years. The advertised unemployment rate is 5% but the more
accurate unemployment rate is nearer 10%. CNN Money reported in a February 6, 2016 piece, “Only 62% of adult
Americans are working. This so-called Labor Force Participation rate hasn’t been this low since the late 1970’s.” That
was during the Jimmy Carter Administration and the so-called “Energy Crisis.”
The President has mandated that men and women may use the restroom of their choice and privacy will have to find
another defender. There are some who have editorialized that labeling restrooms is in itself, a sexist act. Such is the
status of this nation in 2016 where no one wants to do the hard work and would rather burnish the symbol. In America
today, knowing a perception of the truth is far more important than to know the truth.

Late last week Mr. Walberg and the county administrator

8 May 20th 2016 The Boone County Journal 815-544-4430
Continued from page....3
Mr. Walberg opened the discussion of the letter by introducing a member of the Rock
County Board from Rock County, Wisconsin. The man, Alan Sweeny, has been in contact
with Mr. Walberg to find if the two counties could work together to voice their joint
opposition to the proposed bypass.
Mr. Sweeny spoke of the status of rail transportation in Rock County and across
southern Wisconsin. He suggested that there are a number of smaller tracks that could
be refurbished and improved to handle heavier loads as a means to avoid engaging with
the new plan that would lay 278-miles of track from southern Wisconsin, through Boone
County, across northeastern Illinois and into northwest Indiana.
Mr. Sweeny said, “Rock County passed a resolution in opposition to the Great Lakes
Basin Transportation LLC on environmental reasons. We need to address alternatives
to the STB.” Mr. Sweeny then added his real purpose in coming to the County Board
meeting, “I want to ask that Rock County and Boone County work as partners on this report
to the STB.”
The discussion later shifted to more precise consideration of the language contained in
the letters. Mr. Terrinoni explained, “You have two versions of the letter. The first takes
the Scoping Document and conforms to that style. The second version presents a little
different approach and we thought that this version reads a little better.”
Representatives of the STB came to Belvidere in April to meet with the community and
in that meetings, the needs of the STB to analyze this proposed rail plan were laid out. Mr.
Terrinoni sought with the first version of the letter to conform to what the STB said they
wanted to see in these reports from municipalities.
Some of the comments from members of the County Board included County
representative Sherry Branson (District 3), who said, “I think the letter was soft.”
Ms. Ward added, “We are spending too much time on alternatives and not opposing this.
This should be a Resolution and get this done.”
One amendment was offered to add language to the letter to have the letter represent
the views of Boone County and Rock County. That amendment failed by a vote of 7 No
to 4 Yes.
Another amendment was offered to add the language to the opening paragraph adding
Boone County Board and the community in opposition to the effort. That amendment was
merged with a vote on the letter with the amended language added and that vote was 10 Yes
with one vote No. The No vote was cast by County representative Sherry Gisecke (District
1) who explained later that her opposition was not so much based on the content but more
on the style of the letter.
With approval, the letter will be submitted to the STB by/or before their June 15 deadline
for receipt of reports and letters from municipalities and private citizens. Those who live in
Boone County may submit their views to the Surface Transportation Board before the same
June 15 deadline to have their document considered by members of the Board.
