Tell Usabout YOU

ZACH Chizek

My wife and I reside in Webster City with our two children, Collins (2) and Walker (1). My wife works for Farm Credit Services in town as a Crop Insurance Agent and I am an Attorney in town with the Groves & Chizek Law Office. I am active in the community, serving on many boards, including the Van Diest Medical Center Foundation, the Career Ag Academy, and the Peoples Credit Union Board of Directors. I’m also active with the local Rotary club, currently serving as the President-Elect, and also serve as a coach for the Webster City Middle School’s mock trial team. What’s important to you? What is most important to me is that as a community we continue to have those amenities that gives community members, especially those with young families, something to do right here in town and also continue to look to ways to add additional amenities. Whether it be the movie theater, the local pool, Kendell Young Library or Fuller Hall, we need these amenities so that young families want to locate here and/or stay here. It is also important to me that we continue to look at other things we can add to make Webster City an even greater community going forward!

4 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019

What do you love most about Webster City? I have always been in awe of how well Webster City comes together when a particular project needs support or when a community member or organization needs assistance. Whether it be saving the Webster Theater or law enforcement officers shaving their heads to support a fellow officer’s daughter battling leukemia. It truly takes a village! What are you working hardest on? Currently I have been focused on finishing up the remodel of our newly acquired office which will be located at 1620 Superior Street here in town. It is the old Cactus Farm/ Swine Graphics building. We are hoping to be moved by the middle of Spring 2019! This project is exciting for my family and I as it shows our commitment to Webster City long into the future.

I have lived in Webster City for over four decades and of course now consider it home. I retired from state government and immediately found that the need for volunteers existed and it has only grown in the subsequent years. I volunteer often and for a variety of causes. Some I provide hours for each week, and some only as requested on a need basis. As many reader know, I like travel and the urge to see the world has not diminished and frankly there is still a lot of the world to explore. My next stops in 2019 are the tulip expositions in the Netherlands in the spring and later, hopefully, a trip to parts of Africa I have not visited. What is important to you? It is important for our community and county to succeed and prosper, all of us need to work towards a goal for improvement. The town has many nice amenities and some came through the thoughtful planning of people long gone. Those people were unselfish in making plans for things that would last long after their lifetime. I believe that everyone can leave some legacy, whether is it a large financial gift, or simply rolling up their sleeves and regularly contributing with tasks or projects that need help from willing participants. It all goes to the greater cause of making Webster City a better place to live for all residents. I appreciate when people are unwilling to accept the status quo and will look further to see if better solutions exist.

What do you love most about Webster City? I sat on the group that worked with branding ideas and the new logo for Webster City. It was interesting to hear what the committee members saw as strengths and the positives about living in Webster City. The group included those living here all their lives and the transplants who have moved here. I fall into the latter group. The age range was from teens to the retired segment; and I would be in that latter category. The group was diverse but everyone had something good to say about their town. For me it is list of the tangible things like the library, our trail system, our community theatre with multiple productions each year, the churches and service clubs; and the intangible elements, the work done behind the scene by service clubs, churches, scouts and good neighbors to see that food is distributed, clinics help for those needing care, checking on neighbors and service group contributions to many worthwhile local causes. What are you working hardest on? Right now my energies are going many different directions but three groups are getting attention because of their goal or purpose. Alphabetically, Arts R Alive. It is a small group dedicated to getting public art in town, specifically sculpture. The group is well into a ten-year plan and the exhibits at West Twin Park and the recent expansion to the downtown corner of Des Moines and Second is evidence that there is an appreciation for enduring public art. Recently this group has been able to get out-of-state regional artists to display their work. Two local artists are featured downtown. Kendall Young Library is another cause dear to me. I will be entering my tenth year on the board of trustees. The library is endowed and is not a public library. Kendall Young generously gave money and directions for the running of the library for the citizens of Webster City. As we all know, times change and the library endures, but costs and other factors make it a challenge to keep the library running for perpetuity. The five board members strive to make it happen and keep it a standout attraction in town. Lastly, I am a Rotarian, a member of Rotary International. Our club will celebrate 100 years in town in 2020. Rotary has the motto of Service Above Self and I truly think that our local club embodies that in the projects they undertake. Rotary and the other service clubs in town do a tremendous amount of good that would not otherwise happen without their generosity and commitment. I dedicate a lot of my time to working on Rotary projects.

JEFFLyons

I graduated from Webster City High School in 1990. I finished up my schooling in 1992, and the University of Northern Iowa in 1994. I started my teaching career in Webster City in the 1994-1995 school year and have been here now for 24 years. I have also coached boys and girls basketball in Webster City throughout my career. My wife Lisa is also a Webster City graduate and is currently teaching third grade at Sunset Heights in Webster City. I have two sons, Trey in 10th grade and Trevyn in 7th grade. I also have a dog named Rue. What is important to you? The most important thing to me is family. I enjoy going with my wife to watch various athletic events for my boys. I also enjoy the fact that both my parents and my wife’s parents all live right here in Webster City. My sister also lives in Webster City with her four children and her husband Josh, and wife’s sister’s family also lives just outside Webster City.

6 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019

What do you love most about Webster City? There are many things to love about Webster City, but probably the number one thing would be the friendly environment. I like the fact that no matter if you are going to the grocery store or just out to eat that there is always someone willing to take time to say hello to you. What are you working hardest on? Having been an educator for the last 24 years obviously there is a lot of emphasis on academics. I also think that our job as educators is to help our youth become respectful, responsible and caring adults so that they can be successful in the real world.

KYLE Heffernan

What’s most important to you? Family - The primary reason we moved our family back to Iowa is to give them the gift of growing up in small town. I couldn’t imagine a better way to raise to my children and I have been amazed at the support of the community for it’s young people. Webster City has given my family so many opportunities that would not have been feasible in the major city that we lived in previously and we are so thankful to be here.

What do you love most about Webster City? The people of Webster City that I get to work with daily are easily the best thing about this town. Webster City and it’s surrounding communities are full of hard working and resilient people who continue to overcome and make the future of the town brighter than ever as a result of these people.

What are you working hardest on? As a young professional I’ve learned to the value and importance of continually challenging yourself in every facet of your life. The difficulty lies in that the drive and goals must come from within and in my profession I must keep growing to best serve my patients.

Tell Usabout YOU KYLE Swon

I was born in Webster City and I am a 1980 graduate of Webster City High School. After graduating from Iowa State University, I went to work in West Des Moines for a period of time before returning to Webster City when an opportunity arose. “Suddenly” that return was now more than 30 years ago. I’ve spent those 30 plus years in a career in local banking, currently as Retail Services Officer for First State Bank in Webster City. My wife, Darcy, and I raised three children here with the support of great friends, teachers, and coaches. Darcy and I both believe that Webster City has been a wonderful place to raise our family and am confident that it will continue to be that for young families now growing behind us. What’s important to you? Both Brewer Creek and the Boone River were central to my youth when summers were spent with friends … fishing, camping, floating on or near these local streams. My interest in the health and preservation of these waterways continues to be of importance to me as an adult. I still enjoy kayaking and fishing the Boone River whenever the opportunity arises — any day of the year.

8 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019

What do you love most about Webster City? I’ve always been impressed with how Webster City residents and businesses have repeatedly stepped-up in their support of community projects. I’m now especially encouraged by the number of young community members that I’ve been lucky enough to meet through Rotary and other civic organizations who are eager to volunteer their time and talents in supporting/driving local causes that are important to them. What are you working hardest on? A project that has most interested me recently has been my involvement with a committed group of residents who are working on a somewhat unique approach to opening a business in Webster City. While there is a great deal of work to be done in achieving the ultimate goal of opening a craft brewery, we’ve been able to align ourselves with a rather surprising number of people within the industry who have all been more than willing to assist and advise the group.

SMALL TOWN

life suits Suzie Temporary position turns into 17-years in Stanhope By BILLIE SHELTON editor@freemanjournal.net

When Suzie Moore accepted a job in Stanhope in 2000, she planned to stay two or three years.

10 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019


Seventeen years later,

Suzie is still happily in her post as pastor at Stanhope Parish Church, after agreeing to fill in for three weeks back in 2000 while the congregation looked for a new pastor. “When I was given the offer to fill the position, I was in shock because I never thought they would go with a new minister, especially a woman,” Suzie recalls. “I even thought, ‘God, what are you doing?’” But she trusted the direction He presented, moved into the parsonage in Stanhope, and set about getting acquainted with the little town and the people in it. Her congregation as well as the Stanhope community has benefitted from her decision ever since. “Oh, it was a culture shock at first, going from a town of 28,000 to one of 460,” admits Suzie, now 62, who had lived her whole life in Marshalltown until then. “There was no MacDonald’s, and you have to drive everywhere.” Besides small-town living, it was an adjustment for Suzie to go into ministry full time. After completing her A.S. degree in computer science at Marshalltown Community College, she had worked at Iowa Valley Community College District continuing education for thirteen years before she moved to Stanhope. Along with raising a young son as a single parent

at the time, she completed a three-year independent study course to become a commissioned pastor with the Christian Church in the Upper Midwest. Although she had done pulpit supply for several years, Stanhope is her first full-time pastorate. Getting acquainted with her congregation and getting to know folks around town wasn’t difficult, according to Suzie. “Making connections was easy through neighbors and coffee groups and sitting at the convenience store with the guys,” she says. “I think it is important for a minister to know the community, especially in a small town. “If folks see me around town and get acquainted, they’ll call when they need support getting through an issue,” the pastor continues. “I’m not trying to be everyone’s pastor, but I want people to know I am there if they need me.” Beyond such coffee times and serving her congregation, Suzie found another way to become part of the community: by volunteering. For ten of her 18 years in town, she served on the Stanhope city council, where, as she jokes, “I’ve learned more about electricity, storm

12 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019

sewers, and water than I ever wanted to know. “But I’m also proud that I had a small part in the new park shelter and the new substation and in improving main street,” she adds. Suzie has also served on the Stanhope Development Group, Inc. for four years, the last two as secretary. She is on the board for the county economic development group (SEED) and also part of the Hamilton Hometowns team, a sub-group of SEED. For three years while on the council, she was on the Squaw Creek watershed committee, and she still serves on the water source planning team. “We work with Iowa rural water district to look at water sources and safety,” she explains. “We want to make sure that Stanhope is getting the best water we can.” In addition to these activities, Suzie finds time to lead Bible study at Athens Woods Estates in Stratford regularly. And she gets a chance to spend some time with her grown son, his wife, and their two young children, who live in Story City. And, oh yes, she also points out that she is one of the Crazy Crafty Quilters group, who get together regularly


to pursue a favorite activity. The group has made table runners for the tables in the community center, several quilts of valor, and the stylized American flag quilts they made hang on a wall at the community center, in addition to tending to their individual projects. All of these activities since she’s been in Stanhope have warmed Suzie’s heart and benefitted the community that has come to feel like home, like where she belongs. “I love it here!” she exclaims. “I know all my neighbors. I can wave to everyone. It’s really like family in this community.

“Relationship is everything. Jesus tells us that. Love God, love your neighbor,” she goes on. “We need to take care of each other, and a small town does that better than a big town.” Beyond that, what keeps Suzie active in her community and the county? “I do it for the community because I love it and the people who are affected by it,” she answers. “I am only a small part of these amazing groups who do big things. I’m lucky to be part of a group of really caring and creative people who love Stanhope and love the church.”

T he challenge for all small towns, as the pastor sees it, is the change that has seen them evolve from family-based towns to bedroom communities. “That makes it harder and harder to get people involved and volunteering,” she notes. Suzie’s decision to get involved in her adopted hometown has served her well. “Volunteering allows me to contribute, to build relationships, and it allows me to help make a difference,” she concludes.

CITY SCENE

Wow!

Hard to believe in 2019 I am starting my fourth year on the council. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and great start to a new year. I’m sure that all of you made New Year resolutions - are they still working or have you dropped them? Where are you????? The new city manager search was put on hold until after the start of the new year. The Council reviewed several applications in the fall and we concluded we would pass on the last group and start anew this year. I would still like to thank Kent Harfst for filling the open city manager’s position temporarily. I will again thank him for double duty. I think he would be a great city manager on a full time basis… HINT HINT In this City Scene I would like to introduce you to the Public Works Department. These are the folks you like to see coming down the street moving snow and you have fun afterwards clearing your driveway!!!!!!! The Public Works Department has the responsibility for a number of large tasks. The list is long and I will highlight many interesting things. They have 65 miles of streets involving snow removal; sweeping curbs and repair of pot holes; pouring and finishing cement. They also maintain 65 miles of water mains and 65 miles of sanitary sewer lines. We have 450 fire hydrants, 1500 signs and 33 miles of storm sewer line that also need to be taken care of. Snow removal: The process is very detailed based on beginning of and ending snowfall. The process I will discuss is based on overnight snowfall, but actual starting time depends on Mother Nature. The day will begin at 3:00 AM with 3 snow plow trucks, 2 loaders with blades and 2 graders starting. The loaders start with main street parking lots and dead-end streets. Plow trucks and graders begin on regular streets. Beginning at 6:00 AM 4 dump trucks begin hauling snow away. The department receives help from other city drivers who are licensed for dump trucks. The folks have a full work load throughout the year. These duties include, but not limited to, building city walk trails, river bank stabilization; canoe ramp building and maintaining. Weekly, they remove trash on Main Street, and a yearly city wide cleanup. After Christmas they pick up trees and remove leaves in the fall. They trim trees in alleyways and other duties as needed. The department does have GPS and GIS which will locate infrastructure. The work these folks do is often unknown and they are masters of their jobs. The typical work day starts at 7:00 AM. There is a morning meeting for work assignments and review of safety issues.

14 OUR HOMETOWN | JANUARY 2019


Public Works Department

Every Friday the department stops what they are doing at 2:30 and power wash and clean equipment and vehicles. This is very important to the employees, because they feel if the city and community are willing to purchase nice equipment, it will be taken care of and reflect the pride of the department. The department has many demands placed on it - each demand pulls in different directions. The result leads to schedule changes daily. The guys in the department are great at adapting and getting things done at a moment’s notice. This department is full of young employees and all the guys have a promising future due to their strong work ethic and ability to get tasks done!!!! The department is headed by Brandon Bahrenfuss with 8.5 years of service and he has started his second year as department head. Crew leader is Zach Williams, 10 years. His main focus is water distribution and signs. Tim Ziegenbein, 17 years who is the city mechanic. Rick Peterson 7 years; Matt MacRunnel 2.5 years; Brett Ratcliff 2.5 years; Jake Roden 1 year and Jacob McKibban 8 months. I enjoyed meeting with the department and agree they have many varied tasks. Thank the guys when you see them . TELL them to take that squashed “Hawkeye” bird off the maintainers!!!!!!! Please keep all law enforcement folks, military and first responders in your thoughts!!! Have a great 2019!!!!! Jim Talbot, Councilman

LET’S EAT

Our Hometown Recipe Corner

George Washington might have known a thing or two when he tried to cut down a cherry tree. The first president of the United States of America may have been trying to get at the sweet and versatile fruit hanging from the tree’s branches. Cherries are nutritional powerhouses that contain antioxidants, which studies have suggested can reduce the risk of heart disease. In addition, anthocyanins in cherries may help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Furthermore, cherries are a natural source of melatonin, which promotes healthy sleep. People with arthritis may find that cherries can reduce the inflammation associated with their condition. There are many reasons to eat cherries each day, so why not start at the breakfast table? This recipe for “Croissant French Toast with Fresh Bing Cherry Sauce,” courtesy of the California Cherry Board, makes for a delicious and nutritious start to your day.

Slice the croissants in half lengthwise, as if to make a sandwich. Whisk eggs, milk, and cream together in a flat-bottomed baking dish. Lay the croissant pieces in the egg mixture, turning several times as the liquid is absorbed. Add the oil to griddle and heat on medium flame. Cook the croissant slices until golden brown on each side. Place the bottom croissant slices on serving plates. Top with 1/2 cup cherry mixture. Top with the croissant tops, then add a dollop of whipped cream and finish with a pour of chocolate sauce.

SAVVY SENIOR by Jim Miller

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOUR AGING PARENTS FINANCES

Dear Savvy Senior, My siblings and I don’t know much about our elderly parent’s financial situation or their wishes if something happens to them. When mom broke her hip last year, it got me thinking we need to be better prepared. What’s the best way to handle this, and what all should we know?

Dear Tentative, Many adult children don’t know much about their elderly parent’s financial situation or end-of-life plans, but they need to. Getting up to speed on their finances, insurance policies, long-term care plans and other information is important because some day you might have to help them handle their financial affairs or care, or execute their estate plan after they die. Without this information, your job becomes much more difficult. Here are some tips that can help.

Have the Conversation If you’re uncomfortable talking to your parents about this topic, use this column as a prompt or start by talking about your own finances or estate plan as a way to ease into it. Also see TheConversationProject.org, which offers free kits that can help you kick-start these discussions. It’s also a good idea to get your siblings involved too. This can help you head off possible hard feelings, plus, with others involved, your parents will know everyone is concerned. When you talk with your parents, you’ll need to collect some information, find out where they keep key documents and how they want certain things handled when they die or if they become incapacitated. Here’s a checklist of areas to focus on.

PERSONAL & HEALTH INFORMATION Contacts: Make a list of names and phone numbers of their doctors, lawyer, accountant, broker, tax preparer, insurance agent, etc. Medical information: Make a copy of their medical history (any drug allergies, past surgeries, etc.) and a list of medications they take. Personal documents: Find out where they keep their Social Security card, marriage license, military discharge papers, etc.

Pets: If they have a pet, what are their instructions for the animal’s care? End of life: What are their wishes for organ or body donation, and their funeral instructions? If they’ve made pre-arrangements with a funeral home, get a copy of the agreement.

FINANCIAL RECORDS Debts and liabilities: Make a list of any loans, leases or debt they have – mortgages owed, car loans, medical bills, credit card debts. Also, make a list of all their credit and charge cards, including the card numbers and contact information. Financial accounts: Make a list of the banks and brokerage accounts they use (checking, savings, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, IRAs, etc.) and their contact information. Company benefits: Make a list of any retirement plans, pensions or benefits from their former employers including the contact information of the benefits administrator. Insurance: Make a list of the insurance policies they have (life, long-term care, home, auto, Medicare, etc.) including the policy numbers, agents and phone numbers. Property: Make a list of the real estate, vehicles or other properties they own, rent or lease and where they keep the deeds, titles and loan or lease agreements. Taxes: Find out where they keep copies of past year’s tax returns.

For more tips, see the Eldercare Locator publication “Let’s Talk: Starting the Conversation about Health, Legal, Financial and End-of-Life Issues” at N4A.org/files/Conversations.pdf.

Secured places: Make a list of places they keep under lock and key or protected by password, such as online accounts, safe deposit boxes, safe combination, security alarms, etc.
