One of the players who made up a solid foundation for the Wethersfield girls' basketball team, senior forward Caitlin Miller, will be taking her game to Black Hawk College for the 2013-14 season after signing with BHC on Thursday.

This past season, Miller contributed five points and 6.5 rebounds per game for a Lady Geese squad that finished 23-8 and reached the Class 1A regional finals, losing to eventual third-place state finisher Annawan on its home floor.

In 2011-12, she contributed to a Wethersfield squad that advanced to the 1A sectional finals, once again falling to Annawan. She was also a member of the Annawan-Wethersfield softball team that won a 1A regional crown in '11.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

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.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

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.
