Alleman senior runner Ethan Adlfinger recently announced his intentions to continue his career at North Central College. Adlfinger will compete in cross country and track at the Naperville-based school.

Adlfinger has earned five state medals in his running career, with three in track. He earned sixth- and eight-place medals in the 4x800-meter relay and took ninth in the 1600 last spring. Adlfinger is the only athlete in program history to earn a medal three consecutive years.

This fall, he took fifth in the Class 1A state meet and helped the Pioneers win regional, sectional and Western Big 6 Conference titles. Adlfinger finished 13th at the 2011 state meet.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
