Croptimism Iowa farmers pleasantly surprised by year’s turnout

By Jared.Raney With harvest season well under way, Iowa farmers are finding a pleasant surprise as the numbers roll in: Things are not as bad as they thought. At the end of summer when the drought was in full force, farmers had dire predictions coming their way. Original estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture had the national yield at 122.8 bushels per acre, which is 24.4 bushels lower than last year’s average. Those numbers would have put this year’s harvest at the lowest average yield in nearly 20 years, according to USDA statistics. The lower yields would have put the state slightly above the national average but still significantly lower than the past few years. In 2011, Iowa produced 172 bushels per acre; the current numbers show Iowa producing 140 bushels per acre. To some, 140 bushels per acre seem very low compared to the 172 bushels in 2011 and the 182 bushels in 2009, which was the highest yield in

The debate will cover foreign and domestic policies and will be split into nine different sections. The vice presidential debate will reinforce the positions Mitt Romney and Barack Obama brought forward in the presidential debate last week.

Biden will likely speak against tax cuts for the rich, in favor of abortions in the case of rape, illegal immigration and cutting funding on agricultural subsidies. Steffen Schmidt, university professor of political science, said people can expect a bit of a bout. “Biden will try to beat up Ryan and show that he’s extreme on Medicare and abortion for women who are raped,” Schmidt said. “Biden will attack [Ryan] on tax breaks for the rich who don’t need tax breaks, and Biden will hit hard on Bain Capital, on Romney’s

In celebration of National Coming Out Week, members of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Ally Alliance stood in the free speech zone on campus and asked students passing by to guess their sexual orientation and

their gender identity. “The point of this is to show that you can’t always know just based off of someone’s appearance,” said April Anderson, graduate student in education and member of LGBTAA. Anderson said she thought National Coming Out Week was im-

portant for people to recognize that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons are just like everyone else. “Love is love, and gender plays little part in love,” Anderson said. Hiding oneself can cause stress and sometimes physical and mental health issues. No one deserves to feel

afraid of being themselves, Anderson said. “Closets are for storage; people are not storage,” Anderson said. Coming out has been a lifelong process for Anderson. She did not

>>LGBTAA.p1 come out in high school because she felt uncomfortable and unsafe revealing her true sexual identity. “I hid myself for many years after that,” Anderson said. Anderson said her mother thought Anderson’s sexuality was just a phase. Through time, Anderson’s mother became supportive and accepting of Anderson and her sexuality. As pansexual, Anderson identifies herself as someone who is attracted to both men and women as well as transgender folks. “I also identify as ‘gender queer,’” Anderson said. “To me, that means that I know that I have male as well as female traits.” It wasn’t until she came to Iowa State that Anderson felt comfortable being herself. Through being a vocalist for LGBT issues and liberation, Anderson has found a group of people who are willing to accept her. “You are not alone. There is support here and ‘out there’ for you,” Anderson said. “You are beautiful and perfect just the way you are.” National Coming Out Day was an opportunity for people to come out about their sexual identity. Coming out is really hard for a lot of people, said Buffy Jamison, senior in world languages and cultures and president of LGBTAA. “When you just be yourself and be who you are, you feel complete,” Jamison said. Jamison said she kept making excuses for herself, such as, “I like guys. So, I must be straight,” and “All girls think other girls are attractive. I must just want to be like her.” “I battled with it for years,” Jamison said. “I first realized it in sixth grade, and it took me until the end of high school to identify myself as bisexual.” Upon arriving at Iowa State, Jamison said she wanted to seek out an alliance. Although she was scared to go at first, Jamison said she was hooked on the organization once she did attend an alliance meeting. A large struggle Jamison faced was how to come out to her father.

cided that she would seek out guidance at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Student Services. After talking to one of the coordinators in the office, Jamison decided it was time to tell her father. “He is a pastor, and when I was young, I could remember him saying ‘God didn’t make an Adam and Steve, he made an Adam and Eve,’” Jamison said. When Jamison came out to her father, she said it went much better that expected. Jamison said her father has changed his attitude over the years toward members of the LGBT community and encourages others to do the same. “When you’re hating one aspect of yourself, you can easily hate the rest of it,” Jamison said. Jamison advises anyone who feels similarly to how she felt in regards to her sexuality prior to coming out or needs help with coming out to talk to someone that they trust. LGBTAA meetings are open to the public, and the coordinators at the LGBTSS office and the counseling center willing to visit with students who may have any questions or concerns about their own sexuality. “Everything said at any of these places remains completely confidential,” said Jamison. “Nobody needs to feel fearful of being outed here.”

Iowa’s history. In reality, before the early 2000s, 140 bushels was a high average. But thanks to hybrids and other factors the plants per acre has steadily increased, giving corn production an edge and taking some of the sting out of a drought year. According to Roger Elmore, professor of agronomy at Iowa State and extension corn specialist, “yields are going up over two bushels per acre, per year, in Iowa. So every year the yield trend... is going up by about two to 2.5 [bushels].” Elmore said that if we look just at this trend, a normal 2012 should have produced around 180 bushels per acre. The 140 bushels that we have so far this harvest season is considerably lower than what many had hoped for, about 22 percent, but Elmore says, “even though our yields are low, some people are very happy with what they’re getting in the field because they thought it was going to be far worse.” A higher corn yield was not the only factor that helped farmers through this tough time, however. As Mike Duffy, professor of economics at Iowa State and recipient of many awards in agricultural research, said, “We came in [to the drought] very strong, in a strong financial position... For most of the crop producers, they were covered by insurance.”

his thoughts on the upcoming debate. “I think Paul Ryan will do better in the debate due to previous speaking experience,” Arment said. “I think Ryan will trip up Biden because of his views on abortion and gay rights. I don’t think Biden is as good of a speaker as Ryan, and that gives the upper hand to Ryan, with being able to recover better and make Biden mess up more.” Vice presidential debates are not historically as influential as the presidential debates, but they can still help voters who are undecided in the final days of the election.

Joshua Arment, sophomore in pre-business, gave

■■ Expected yields are 140 bushels per acre ■■ 2011 yields were 172 bushels per acre ■■ Other states hit hard by the drought are Ohio, Illinois and Indiana ■■ Farmers already looking to next year to replenish ground water

Commodity prices also played a pivotal role in Iowa’s agricultural survival, Duffy said. “The big key is that usually droughts tend to be more localized... This time everybody got hit.” Because the drought was so widespread, corn prices went much higher than they would have if other states been able to pick up the deficit. In fact, Duffy said, “Illinois, Indiana, Ohio... they were hit harder by the drought, and so they had more trouble with the actual yield.” “The ones that will have the biggest problem are going be the livestock producers, and I think especially the pork producers,” Duffy said. Though the high prices will cover the deficit for the corn industry, it leaves others susceptible. This year’s drought may not have left Iowa as crippled as some feared, but Duffy believes we need to look at replenishing groundwater for next year.

Police dog worth more than 3 days

Aug. 29 was a sad day for Des Moines police officers and dog lovers statewide. K-9 officer Brian Mathis left his canine partner Harley in the back of his squad car for over an hour, with all the windows up, on a 96-degree day. As a result, the 7-year-old yellow Labrador retriever died. The Des Moines Police Department investigated the situation and concluded the case Tuesday: Police administrators will punish Mathis by giving him a three-day unpaid suspension. Des Moines Police Chief Judy Bradshaw said Mathis was torn up about the death of his partner Harley, especially since Harley was the Mathis family pet as well. Mathis accidentally killed his dog, his friend, his partner and a fellow officer, as police tradition holds, and we have no doubt that this incident was an accident and that Mathis is as remorseful as possible. Nonetheless, the incident deserves greater punishment. Police culture honors the police dog as a full-fledged officer. In many places, police dogs are sworn in by the city council, just as a human officer would be. They are given a funeral with full police honors when killed in action. And police dogs are honored by outside police organizations who keep track of national police deaths. Anyone who kills a federal police dog is eligible for 10 years in federal prison. Most states have laws protecting police dogs, too. Iowa law, for example, says that the knowing and willful killing of a police dog is a class D felony, punishable by up to five years in state prison and a $7,500 fine. Mathis may still be guilty of neglect resulting in the death of a police dog, which is at least a serious misdemeanor as codified in the Iowa Code: “A person who impounds or confines, in any place, an animal is guilty of animal neglect, if the person ... kills an animal by any means which causes unjustified pain, distress or suffering.” This case certainly qualifies as unjustified pain and suffering, and certainly this deserves more than a three-day unpaid suspension. The negligent death of a police dog is socially and ethically reprehensible, and illegal. We are not suggesting that Mathis have the book thrown at him, but the law demands satisfaction. The community, and likely Mathis’ hurting heart, would be well served by convicting Mathis of the misdemeanor and sentencing him to community service in the local animal shelter. Everyone involved in this case — Brian Mathis, the Des Moines Police Department and the decent citizens of Des Moines — deserve better. Because, after all, Harley deserved better.

Take time, choose carefully

Like choosing a major, picking an allegiance is a big decision


hoosing a political party ought to be like choosing a major. You should try it out a little before you commit. You shouldn’t always do what your parents tell you to do politically, and you have to be true to what you believe while still considering the facts. For many Iowans, when you officially pick a political party, you register to vote for the first time — and often this occurs when you obtain your driver’s license. You can do this at 17 1/2 years old. Many 17-year-olds are not informed on politics. At that age, you still don’t completely know who you are as an individual. And generally at 17 1/2, most Americans are still living with their parents and immediate family; they are still largely influenced by their family and high school peers, still conforming to what is expected of them by their friends and family. When an adolescent moves out, they do one very important thing: They try to distinguish who they are. Two important aspects that define people’s identities in our society are their majors, or jobs if they decide not to further their education, and their political parties. An individual’s political affiliation may seem slightly more significant as we count down to Election Day, but we make

Photo courtesy of Thinkstock Aligning oneself with a political party is not something that should be permanently decided when a person is young. As we grow, our opinions also grow and change, sometimes away from our parents’ and our peers’.

By Claire.Yetley political choices every day. A personal identity, like a freshman’s major, is flexible, and the only way to develop it is to try it out. You have to experience it a little first. A very convenient way to hear about a tiny bit of each major is the Major Fair that recently took place. This fair is one of the many ways Iowa State looks out for its students. Iowa State understands that whatever you choose to study during your approximately four years here will stick around with you for the rest of your life. Iowa State also

understands that it is very unlikely that someone will decide to declare a major in a subject they know nothing about. The Major Fair is more informational than experimental, but it is still an incredibly helpful tool. Many students come to college with an idea of what they’d like to major in. Many young adults also think they have an idea of who they are. But once you immerse yourself in the classes and have to make life decisions on your own, your perception may or may not change. The point is that you keep going. You are living your own life and making choices on your own, as opposed to relying on family or peers to define your life. How individuals push through hard decisions and tasking life experiences is ultimately a greater indicator of who they are as a person

than what party they affiliate to or what major they graduate with. No one is going to know you as well as you know yourself. Don’t trust your new best friend whom you just met three months ago. He or she may be a wonderful friend, but the person doen’t know you like you know yourself, however much or little that is at the time. Even those as close to you as your family will never know you completely, simply based on the fact that no one has gone through the same experiences as you have. That’s what makes you an individual. So trust yourself. While choosing what is important to you and what you stand for, you need to know yourself. Political parties stand for some very personal things. For example, each party generally has a stance

for life issues which are fundamentally personal decisions. Granted, you can be Republican and still be pro-choice, but that is a personal decision you consciously need to think about, and consider all the facts. Our country is dependent on the participation of its citizens, not just politically but economically, and any other way we can innovate and progress. Any person that decides to leave the world up to the “important people” is not just giving up, but is choosing to fail. So if this all seems like too much work just to vote, think of all the people your vote affects and all the lives not voting affects just the same.

Make friendly meals a tradition C an sharing a meal be cause for celebration? Yes, it can. Not only can sharing a meal change your hurried meal into time spent with friends, but it can also change the way we understand food in America. Fear of food is a reality. Haven’t we all wondered about mystery meat in the cafeteria, or what is really in hot dogs? Personally, I’m scared to find out what makes neon-colored Jell-O so bright. Today’s American culture is extremely removed from the process of growing and preparing food. Those who maintain traditions of preparing and presenting food typically tend to be more careful shoppers. They desire food they can trust, which means learning where the food comes from. On the other side of the spectrum, we have those that shop for cheap calories; these comfort foods supposedly sate cravings and give emotional “satisfaction.” But why settle for a quick fix? The experience of creating food — preparing elaborate meals — can turn the table to a place of celebration. This experience helps teach people about the food process, which is essential to changing the mindset of eating in America. This tenet of turning the table into a tradition is key to the Slow Food movement. Slow Food USA explains that this movement is “an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is part of a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members in over 150 countries, which links pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.” This idea of appreciating and celebrating food caught ahold of me a few years ago when I read Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life.” “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life” is one of quintessential books that helped launch a transition in America’s attitude about food because it gave a personal perspective into the issue. Though her ideas on the

By Kristen.Daily subject are not new — she writes about the fundamental principles of the Slow Food movement and sustainable agriculture — she has a unique story to tell. The book combines her personal narrative of her family’s year-long commitment to live on local and homegrown food with her husband’s reports on the science and industry of food, as well as her daughter’s perspective on cooking and current food culture. I highly recommend the book; it is a great read. Plus, there are plenty of practical tips for local eating, as well as a variety of recipes. Eating local has many benefits. For starters, it tastes better — it’s fresher and there tends to be more varieties, especially with produce. Local food also lessens the environmental impact because it leaves a smaller carbon footprint, which happens when food is shipped thousands of miles across the country and from around the world. Local farmers may also tend to use more sustainable or organic growing processes. Lastly, local food supports the local economy, and it helps build community,

because there is chance to develop a relationship with the people that grow your food. I understand that as students, it is often hard to be conscious of what we are eating. There is enough to worry about with exams, papers, balancing a social life and trying to find a few moments in the day for ourselves. But sitting down to share a meal with friends can change your day. I grew up in the kitchen, so I have always enjoyed cooking. I find that gathering around the table with friends over a home-cooked meal brings people together in a way that take-out or a microwave dinner doesn’t. When I came to school this year, I found myself crunched for time and money, but I didn’t want to give up on cooking and sharing a meal. So this year, a group of friends and I decided to meet every Sunday morning for brunch. In doing this, we have discovered how much this improves the day. For me, Sundays are typically dreaded; it’s the day when I have to face the reality of all of the homework I’ve put off doing all weekend. But getting up and starting the day with a home-cooked meal and sharing it with friends was a much better way to start the

day. By eating together, we get to spend a few hours together in a community. Although the meals are not always the perfect picture of health, they are not processed foods either. By cooking together, we have tried new recipes and discovered great foods to enjoy while they are in season. I’ve picked up some great veggies at Ames’ local farmer’s market that have been great additions to pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches. This is key to changing eating in America; taking to time to learn about and buy what is in season can really change to the way we eat. It can revolutionize a food culture that better appreciates what is in season and tries to support local growers. Deprivation leads to a greater appreciation — when you have to go without a certain food that is not in season, you will appreciate it more during the time you can eat it. Consider taking the time to sit down for a while and share a meal with friends. It will likely be healthier and make you happier.

Sports Jargon:

Pick-six SPORT: Football DEFINITION: A casual term for an interception that is returned for a touchdown by the defense (the ‘six’ refers to the points for the touchdown). USE: A.J. Klein is tied for the most pick-sixes by a linebacker in NCAA history with four.

Korie Lucious says he’s a winner. He’s proven that he can do just that when he played for Michigan State in the second round of the 2010 NCAA tournament against Maryland. Lucious subbed in for an injured Kalin Lucas with 2:28 left in the game. After a go-ahead bucket by Maryland with six seconds left, Lucious caught a pass on the wing, took one dribble to his left and canned the game-winning buzzer-beater. Lucious has learned patience, too. Sitting out for a year and a half after leaving Michigan State and watching the games from the Hilton stands in the 2011-12 season for Iowa State, he had a chance to learn. “It taught me a lot more about patience,” Lucious said. “My decision-making; I got to see the game from a different standpoint, so it’s just going to help me take it on the court.” His roommate and soon-tobe on-the-court teammate, Will Clyburn, sat out with Lucious last year. Clyburn transferred from Utah, where he was an All-Mountain West second-team performer, averaging 17.1 points per game and 7.8 rebounds per game. Both he and Lucious struggled watching from the stands as their team ran into a buzzsaw in the Kentucky Wildcats, who cruised to a national championship by winning their NCAA tournament games by an average of 11.8 points per game. “Me being a competitor, I wanted to be out there with my team,” Clyburn said. “I want to help them as much as I can. I just had to be patient. It was tough.” Now both Lucious and Clyburn will be able to bring different skill sets to what Iowa State wants to do offensively and defensively. Clyburn, a lanky 6-foot-7 wing player, brings the versatility to play the positions from two through four, where he can guard a shooting guard with his

quickness, but also his length allows him to guard big forwards. “[Clyburn] is a kid that can hurt you from all over the floor,” said ISU coach Fred Hoiberg. “I think he can facilitate an offense, you can post him up against smaller players and you can put the ball in his hands in isolation situations, plus he can go around guys, plus he’s a 40-percent 3-point shooter.” Aside from the offensive ability, Hoiberg has been most impressed with Clyburn’s ability to rebound. Hoiberg said Clyburn “got every rebound” at the last team practice. Hoiberg also believes Clyburn’s rebounding will give him the chance to push the ball up the floor as the lead guard, which will give shooting opportunities to guards on the wings. Lucious brings aspects the Cyclones lacked last year on both ends of the floor, too — a guard who can facilitate and distribute, while guarding the opposition’s small, quick guards. Offensively, Lucious will be the “floor general,” which is something he takes personally. “That’s something I take into heart,” Lucious said. “I’m a point guard; if I do make it to the NBA or wherever else I play, I will be a point guard. I’m going to get out on the court and lead my team in whatever way it is, so I’m just going to get out there and lead my guys and put them in position to succeed.” Defensively, Lucious is only 5-foot-11 and is quicker and lower to the ground than those the Cyclones had playing guard last year, which gives him the ability to keep up with the lightning-quick guards the Big 12 boasts yearly. ISU fans will remember games from last year where Oklahoma State’s Keiton Page and Baylor’s Pierre Jackson filled up the scoring charts, before Hoiberg was forced to put a bigger Chris Babb on them. “We didn’t have that traditional point guard last year,” Hoiberg said.

same page when it comes to winning when they step out on the court. “I’m going to do whatever it takes to win,” Clyburn said. Lucious echoed his roommate’s mentality. “I’m going to give it my all every time I step out on the court,” Lucious said. “I’m a winner.”

‘Win turnover batttle, win game’ By Jake.Calhoun Win the turnover battle, win the game — that’s the mantra ISU coach Paul Rhoads has been stressing to his team. Last weekend, Rhoads said his team’s +4 turnover margin played a big part in its 37-23 win against then-No. 15 TCU. If Iowa State (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) is planning on beating No. 6 Kansas State this Saturday, Rhoads said it will need to stay out of the red in turnovers. “We lost [the turnover battle] two-to-zip a year ago and lost the football game,” Rhoads said of his team’s loss to Kansas State last December. “Oklahoma lost it three-to-zip to [Kansas State] this year and lost the football game.” In the past two seasons, the Cyclones have been undefeated when they won the turnover battle (4-0). The Cyclones are currently tied for eighth in passes intercepted by the defense with

nine. Jacques Washington currently leads the team with three of those picks. Deon Broomfield and Durrell Givens are the other defensive backs who have interceptions this season. This season, Kansas State (5-0, 2-0) leads the Big 12 Conference in turnover margin with an overall mark of +10, while Iowa State is seventh in the conference with -1. “Bill Snyder does an exceptional job of coaching

“Not only on the offensive end, but the defensive end too. It affects the way you’re able to play. We really had to pack it in at times last year. Scott [Christopherson] and Chris [Allen] were great, but they’re not point guards.” Despite how the two vary in size and skill set, they both are on the

his offensive football team in decision-making and the fundamentals of the game,” Rhoads said. “His quarterbacks understand how to protect the football — where not to throw it, when not to throw it and so forth. “Their ball carriers protect the ball. They do the things fundamentally — high and tight, grab it with two arms when you should and really treat it as the valuable commodity that it is.” KSU running back John

Hubert coughed up the Wildcats’ lone fumble on the season in the second quarter of their Sept. 15 victory against North Texas. Hubert, who is commonly overshadowed by the notorious rushing quarterback Collin Klein, leads the Wildcats in rushing with 527 yards. “He’s very underrated, I don’t know why he’s not getting the hype that other running backs are getting,” Broomfield said of Hubert. “We knew that last year when we played him that he was a great running back, so we’re a little more aware now.” Overall, in the Cyclones have turned the ball over 13 times — tied for 98th nationally — in their first five games of the season. Even though five of their 10 wins the past two seasons have come when losing the turnover battle, Rhoads has said repeatedly that that type of dumb luck cannot be counted upon to continue winning games. “I think it’s a proven fact

that if you win the turnover battle, most of the time you’re going to win the ballgame,” said defensive coordinator Wally Burnham. “That’s something you always shoot for. They happen, just like I told you guys before. You try to do a good job every week in emphasizing that and we will again this week.” Even though forcing turnovers on defense is critical, however, Burnham said making the tackle is still the first priority of his players. One of those five turnovers the ISU defense forced was a 20-yard interception returned for a touchdown by defensive end David Irving. Irving, who stands at 6-foot-7, said he has been developing the strength of his lengthy arms to deflect passes and hopefully pick them off as he did last Saturday. “Every aspect of the game — shedding blocks, deflecting passes, blocking field goal kicks — I just need to work on getting them out to shoot my arms out and use them more,” Irving said.

As David Dorhout drove down a nighttime road one year ago, an idea popped into his head whilst listening and moving to the music blasting from his speakers. Realizing how much he had been “subconsciously conducting the music,” Dorhout thought it would be a great idea if his motions could actually manipulate sounds. One year later, Dorhout’s dream has become a reality as he and his wife Rebekkah have developed a production-ready version of his idea called the ScuffN. Pronounced “scuffin,” the name originated around the idea that when people move or dance, they scuff the floor with their feet or the air with their hands. “I wanted it to sound unique. It was originally going to be called something like the ‘Muse,’ but that’s been done before in the music market. We settled on ScuffN because it stands out and has an underlying meaning,” Dorhout said.

Dorhout is an ISU alumnus who switched from computer engineering to entomology while in school. In his insect behavior class, Dorhout’s view of the way the senses work was opened up and changed how he saw the world. “From then on, motion tracking and things like peripheral vision have always engaged me,” Dorhout said. Dorhout is now an inventor whose other ideas have garnered much international and Internet attention on his YouTube channel. The current version of the ScuffN is a small pocket-sized device that houses an eight-core Parallax Propeller chip, a small motion sensor that users can wear, and an SD card slot for loading audio samples or storing the preloaded ones. When the device is on and the sensor is being worn on part of the user’s body, full control of the sound is enabled from the device. What this means is that no matter where the sensor is placed on your body (Dorhout put his inside his sweatshirt), movements will activate different sound bites at the user’s whim. Sensors can even be sewn into clothing. “If enough sensors are used, somebody could harness full-body motion control of the device and its music,” Dorhout said.

Showing what the device does, Dorhout wore the sensor like a ring on his finger and moved his hand much in the same fashion you would see a DJ move around his scratch table — except this was in thin air. Adjusting the different sounds is effortless after a few minutes of getting to know the device, at which point the user will be able to learn which gestures enable which sound bites. In the demonstration, Dorhout turned his hand to the left to initiate a drum beat and then waited for the right opportunity to scuff other noises into the tune by strategically moving and adjusting the elevation of his ring sensor. “The whole process gets you feeling and looking very animated,” Dorhout said. “It’s a great workout that’s also great fun.” Dorhout went on to explain that nobody is limited to just one sensor. “Essentially, someone could have a sensor on each of their appendages, if they wanted,” Dorhout said. “It would take practice to memorize what sounds each sensor produced, but someone could dance around and create their very own band with multiple devices being controlled by their entire body.” Users can upload any of their songs

to an SD card (in a .wav format) and put it into the device’s slot, allowing fullmotion scuffing and scratching to their favorite songs. The couple and their Ames company, Dorhout R&D, LLC, have started a Kickstarter on the Internet after a year of tweaking and changing much of the ScuffN’s design. “As it’s evolved, we’ve made it much easier to do simple things, like change the SD cards or the batteries, in addition to making it smaller,” Dorhout said. Manufactured in their own home, the Dorhouts are ready to begin the biggest production the units have ever seen with the public’s help driving their funding and assuring that Kickstarter donators receive their own ScuffN, should the project pull through. The goal by the end of October is $15,000 on the Kickstarter page, and this is an all-or-nothing fund. Much to the couple’s excitement, the project is already backed by people from the United States and international countries alike, ranging from Canada to France and Estonia. “It would be amazing and really cool to see our ScuffN being used by people everywhere that love to make music their own,” Dorhout said.

Outside of teaching, Richards takes time to be a guest reader at schools and bookstores. Richards will be doing “Storytime With Chuck,� which will be a live reading for children from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Brunnier Art Museum. The book that will be featured is his latest title, “Lulu’s Magic Wand.�

I drew growing up; I drew for fun as a kid, and so that was something that I spent a lot of time doing and got a lot of satisfaction and enjoyment out of it. When you start to like something you do more and you get better at it. When I was in high school I was always taking art classes and I majored in painting and drawing in college. Most of the work that I was doing until age 45 was fine art that I was showing in exhibitions and galleries, and it was edgy and wasn’t really for kids; it had social com-

Poison Control Center’s drummer for a national tour. “Chris is an extraordinary musician, whether it’s behind a drum kit or a piano or a microphone,� said Patrick Fleming, guitarist and vocalist for The Poison Control Center. “We love Chris as a person so we thought he’d be the perfect person to ask.�

Well, often as I get invited. I have a person who is kind of a representative for me, and she has connections with schools. She’s a booking agent, basically. She’ll book school visits and I do a little bit of traveling. I don’t go too far, it’s mostly been in the Midwest.

What do children like about your books? That’s really probably my favorite part about it. As a studio artist prior to doing the children’s books, I would make my art, I would show it in a gallery more often then not because I was building my resume... and I wouldn’t go to the show. So it was very detached, ... When you read at bookstores or at schools, you have the whole school there and I’d usually do these with powerpoints. I’d project the images in the gymnasium and the kids are really enthusiastic and I usually do a drawing as part of my presentation. I try to make it interactive. I was working on an idea of monsters, and I’d say “I want you guys to help me invent a monster.� ... I’m getting much more connection with my audience than I did as a “so-called fine artist.�

Fleming also recorded Christopher the Conquered’s second record “You’re Gonna Glow In The Dark,� which was released on Maximum Ames Records. Fleming said he thought the record was “one of the greatest records to ever come out of Iowa.� It has only been a couple weeks since the Maximum Ames Festival

closed out another year of musical talent, and being involved in such a supportive scene inspires Fleming. “Every time I go to a show locally, it just makes me want to go home and write songs and play songs,� Fleming said. “There’s just a lot of really great music being made in Iowa right now and it’s something I’m just happy to be a part of.�
