Council approves purchase of Kunzman property

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — The Grundy Center City Council has taken a step to clean up a property that was severely damaged by a house fire earlier this year. Last Tuesday the Council approved the purchase of the Kunzman property at 705 First Street. Funding for the $7,000 purchase will come from the Property Revitalization Program. Any taxes owned on the property will be taken from the purchase price. “This is a win-win for everyone involved,” Mayor Rex Van Wert said. Councilman Dave Stefl expressed support for the purchase, but noted that the city needs to have a plan for use of the property. City Clerk Rich Riesberg said the property is part of the city’s dangerous and dilapidated program and will be offered for sale once it is cleaned up. “I just don’t want to see the city sit on it,” Stefl said. Van Wert said the property may not be ready for sale until the spring. In other business, Council approved an extension of the current City health insurance plan through Wellmark to Dec. 1, 2014. Riesberg said Wellmark offered the extension to smaller communities and businesses as it determines what plan changes are needed as the national health care plan goes fully into effect. Council approved a resolution requesting the assistance of the staff at INRCOG (Iowa Northland Regional Council of Governements), formalizing what the group had previously been doing at the Grundy Center Airport. Riesberg briefed the Council on possibilities for paying off geo bonds that could be purchased to See COUNCIL page 2

More Grundy County bridges to receive repairs

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Two more bridges that received damage in this spring's flash flooding will receive repairs thanks to federal funding. County Engineer Gary Mauer said during Monday's Board of Supervisors meeting that the two bridges, both in Highway D-17 north of Wellsburg, will be fixed with FEMA Emergency Declaration funds, which come 100 percent from the federal government. A bridge just east of Highway T-19 will receive riprap (rock) at a cost of $88,000 while a larger bridge just east of T-25 will receive both riprap and work on the concrete abutment at a cost of $287,000. Mauer also updated the Supervi-

sors on two other bridge projects. Work on a damaged bridge north of Wellsburg on T-19 was completed last week and the road has been reopened to traffic. A bridge west of Conrad on H Avenue will be replaced by FEMA, though Mauer said the new structure will be tempered (wooden). The County plans to appeal to FEMA for a concrete structure instead. In other business, the Board: • Approved an easement request from ITC Midwest for a crossing on the Comet Trail in Conrad; • Approved an interfund transfer from a tracer fund into the assessor fund; • Authorized Board Chairman Jim Ross to sign refised letter of allowance of military property tax exemption.

The incorrect project was referred to for Zac Osgood in last week's Grundy County Fair section. Osgood's project was the planter that the flower arrangement was in, not the flowers themselves. The Grundy Register apologizes for this error.

Council From page 1 finance new street lights. He said the Finance Committee has looked at 10-, 15- and 20-year bonds and would recommend the 10-year approach. He said the committee recommended that the city pay off remaining debt on the Community Center early to help offset the impact on taxpayers. He estimated that would bring the cost to taxpayers to about $20 per $100,000 valuation. Councilman Brian Buhrow reported that a citizen had asked for a stop sign at the corner of 11th Street

and F Avenue. Police Chief Brock Gilbert said his department has patrolled the area and determined that there is not enough traffic to warrant a new sign. Public Works Director Dan Bangasser reported that the city will begin seal coating streets in the near future. He said they hope to seal coat about 40 blocks this year and continue on a 10-year plan that would seal coat each city street. Council also approved a liquor license for Crystal Bowl and a native wine permit for Shabby Shack.

Conservation Comments

By KEVIN WILLIAMS Grundy County Conservation Director

Where Did August Go? Where has August gone? For that matter where did July go? Or June? Summer is over. And I’m not saying that because of the crazy mild weather we had during the state fair. Hot temps aren’t gone for good. In fact, they are forecast to be back before you are reading this in the newspaper this week. OK, so maybe summer won’t be officially over for a few more weeks if you are checking your calendar but there are natural signs that it is almost fall. Like the ever-growing flocks of blackbirds and swallows that you see along the roads perched on the adjacent powerlines and cornstalks. Then there are the sounds of cicadas, katydids, and crickets. First, the cicadas start the insect chorus in late afternoon with the ascending zing-zing-zing sound coming from the trees That’s the best way that I can try and describe it. At dusk the male crickets begin rubbing their wings together, dragging a small peg

on one wing across a row of ridges on the other. The result is a series of clicks similar to what happens when you click your thumbnail down the teeth of a comb. Only with the crickets the clicks are so fast you don’t hear the individual clicks. What you hear is a trill or a chirp. Finally, the last singers of the day take over and sing till the wee hours of the morning. Katydids are large green insects that are more commonly heard than seen. Katydids resemble a leaf and easily hide within the upper crown of a hardwood tree. They are named for the rhythmic song they sing in late summer. The males sing in quick bursts of two, three or four notes that sort of sound like Kay-tee-did. The sound is a crisp and harsh tone similar to saying the word zit with a prolonged Z sound and abrupt T on the end. Now say it three times in quick succession. The Killdeers that Shannon wrote about a couple of weeks ago are running all over the gravel roads near

our house in preparation for migration but many kinds of shorebirds have already exited this area. There are a few bird species still nesting but for the most part, that is over, too. The primary exception to that would be the American Goldfinches. They wait until right now to nest thus utilizing the down of the thistles to line their nests. The sounds of the coyotes to the north and south of my house in the evenings tell me that that the pups are nearing adult size and will soon be on their own. Before winter gets here they will need to be. And with the Scheels 3D Bowshoot held on the Black Hawk Creek Wildlife Area this past weekend, I really got in the mood for fall and bowhunting. The results from the shoot will be posted on the county website – grundycounty.org. I’ll plan to tell you how things went and who the winners were in this newscolumn next week.

Northey comments on Iowa Crops and Weather report

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey today commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through October. “The dry weather remains a concern as 65 percent of the topsoil and 59 percent of subsoil moisture is short or very short,” Northey said. “While the cool dry weather was ideal for the state fair, crops need additional precipitation and warm weather as development remains well behind the fiveyear average.” The weekly report is also available on the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s website at www.IowaAgriculture.gov or on USDA’s site at www.nass.usda.gov/ ia. The report summary follows here: CROP REPORT Drier and cooler than average weather persisted across most of Iowa during the week ending August 18, 2013, according to the USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service. Although varying amounts of moisture were received in central and western portions of the State, the lack of significant precipitation was a growing concern for Iowa farmers. Statewide there was an average of 6.4 days suitable for fieldwork. Southwest Iowa received the most rainfall during the week, and had the least days suitable for fieldwork with 5.8. A total of 35 percent of topsoil and 41 percent of subsoil was in the

adequate and surplus moisture categories, both declining 6 percentage points from last week. Topsoil moisture levels rated 25 percent very short, 40 percent short, 34 percent adequate and 1 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture levels rated 19 percent very short, 40 percent short, 40 percent adequate and 1 percent surplus. With nearly all the corn crop tasseled, 93 percent was silking, behind the five-year average of 99 percent. Sixty-two percent of the corn crop reached the milk stage, trailing the normal 87 percent. Twenty-four percent of the crop has reached the dough stage, well behind the normal 60 percent. Some of the very earliest planted corn crop has reached the dent stage. Corn condition declined slightly from the previous week, and was rated at 5 percent very poor, 13 percent poor, 34 percent fair, 40 percent good and 8 percent excellent. With 95 percent of the soybean crop blooming, pods were being set on 71 percent of the soybean crop, well behind last year’s 94 percent and the normal 89 percent. Soybean condition declined slightly from last week and was rated 5 percent very poor, 12 percent poor, 36 percent fair, 38 percent good and 9 percent excellent. Oat harvest was wrapping up across the state. The third cutting of alfalfa has reached 36 percent compete, 9 days behind the normal pace. Both hay and pasture conditions continued to deteriorate, and the amount rated in the good and excellent categories fell 4

Pasture condition rated 10 percent very poor, 22 percent poor, 40 percent fair, 25 percent good and 3 percent excellent. IOWA PRELIMINARY WEATHER SUMMARY By Harry Hillaker State Climatologist, Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship Unseasonably cool weather prevailed for another week while most of the state is still waiting for a substantial rain. Temperatures averaged below normal every day this week, as they have for all but one day in the past four weeks. Temperatures approached normal on Sunday (11th) and Monday (12th) with highs mostly in the 80’s but were well below normal from Tuesday (13th) through Thursday (15th) when daytime highs were mostly in the 70’s. Temperature extremes for the week ranged from Sunday (11th) afternoon highs of 88 degrees at Bloomfield, Centerville, Des Moines, Donnellson and Osceola, as well as at Red Oak on Monday to Wednesday morning lows of 42 degrees at Elkader and Belle Plaine. Temperatures for the week as a whole averaged 5.9 degrees below normal. Thunderstorms brought very welcome rain to parts of north central and central Iowa on Sunday (11th) night with a maximum reported amount of

2.27 inches at Boone. Rain was also widespread across the southwest onethird of the state on Wednesday night with Underwood (Pottawattamie Co.) reporting the most with 3.85 inches. However, parts of the state, particularly the far southeast, received no rain for the week. The statewide average precipitation was 0.44 inches while normal for the week is 0.98 inches. This was the sixth week of the past seven to bring less than normal rainfall.

Civil War Battlefield Surgery By SUE ECKHOFF Grundy County Heritage Museum Against common belief, Civil War surgeons were not heartless, nor were they totally incompetent. There were certainly those who were not competent, but to lump all surgeons into that category was an injustice. In the battle of Antietam, devotion to duty caused some medical officers to lose their lives. If any objection were to be made against surgery in the field it would be the efforts on the part of surgeons to practice “conservative surgery” to too great an extent. The slow moving minie bullet used during the Civil War caused catastrophic injuries. The minie ball that struck John Hoods leg at Chickamauga destroyed 5 inches of his upper thigh bone. This left surgeons with no choice but to amputate, his leg was removed only four and one half inches away from his body. Injuries like Hoods had an 83% mortality rate. The closer to the body the amputation was done, the more chance there was that the wound would be mortal. The most common Civil War surgery was amputation. Missing arms and legs were permanent, very visible reminders of the war. Amputees ranged from the highest ranking officers like John B. Hood and Stonewall Jackson all the way down to enlisted men like Corporal C.N. Lapham of the 1st Vermont cavalry who lost both of his legs to a cannon ball. With three out of four wounds being to extremities, the Federal Army had 30,000 amputations. It would not be out of the ordinary for the wait for treatment to be up to two days. When treatment was finally done it was not done antiseptically, surgeons did not perform careful hand washing before operating. The doctors wore blood spattered clothes and when something was dropped it was simply rinsed in cool, often bloody water. They used sponges and instruments that had been used in previous cases and simply dipped them in water before using them again. The injuries to be dealt with were dreadful. The minie ball bullet left large gaping holes, splintered bones and destroyed muscle, arteries and tissue beyond any possible repair. Those shot through the body or the head would not be expected to live. The problem was that on the whole, Civil War doctors were not incompetent as doctors, but as surgeons. Of the 11,000 Northern physicians, only 500 had performed surgery. In the confederacy it was worse. Of 3,000, only 27 had done surgery. Many got their first introduction to surgery on the battlefield. The field hospital was hell on earth. Surgeons would stand over the operating table for hours without a let-up. Man screamed in delirium, calling for loved ones. They worked under a crude system of triage. Wounds through the head, belly or chest were left to one side, because they would most likely die. As cruel and crude as it sounds, it allowed doctors to save previous time to operate on the ones that could be saved. The surgeon would wash out the wound with a cloth, probe for cloth, bone splinters, or the bullet. If the bone was broken or a major blood vessel torn, he would often decide on amputation. He would then administer chloroform (which was in widespread use, contrary to opinion). Then he would take his scalpel and make an incision through the skin and muscle and down to the bone, making incisions above and below the wound, leaving a flap of skin on one side, then saw through the bone until it was severed, tie off the arteries, scrap the bone smooth, and pull the flap of skin across and sew closed, leaving a drainage hole. A good surgeon could amputate a leg in less than 10 minutes. If the soldier was lucky he would recover without “surgical fever” (pyemia or gangrene). Pyemia was the most deadly; it was a form of blood poisoning and had a mortality rate of ninety percent.

Dirks reunion

It was Saturday morning and the DNH Mom's met at the Dike New Hartford Auditorium for a special Mom Football Camp. OK Gramdma's were there also. Coach Betts welcomed 55 gals to the learning camp. The camp info went like this: Football basics, equipment, transition, and strength training . Then it was outside with the football players and we learned more about offense, defense, and then if you watched the 6 and 10 news you got to watch several Moms make hard hits on their player sons and a few even caught passes. It was then back inside for instructions on following the calls made by the officials. Dustin Lutterman, football official from Grundy Center , discussed the many things the officials look for during a game. Each Mom and Grandma at the camp received a handout explaining all the signals an official will use. So guys be sure to make the right call as we will be watching. Refreshment were served and watch for those ladies were their new t-shirts. Coach Betts tells us the first game will be August 30 against Grundy Center in Grundy Center. See you there!!

Kofi Annan, the former Secretary General of the United Nations put the issue concisely: “Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right.” In the United States and in most of the developed world we take water for granted. We turn on the faucet and out pours clean water, but in much of the developing world this is not the case. According to the World Health Organization, over 2 billion people gained access to clean water between 1990 and 2010, but roughly 11% of the global population (783 million people) still lacks access to clean water, and since we cannot live for more than a few days without water, this remains a pressing issue. Threethousand children die each day from diarrheal illness, largely a result of not having clean water. So what can we do about it? We can start by donating to organizations which help in this regard. Water.org is a charity which works to bring clean water to these communities struggling with clean water issues. We should consider buying one of their water bottles, which might save us money on bottled water while supporting a good cause.

Spartans, Cougars kick off football season Friday By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — The 2013 high school football season kicks off in Grundy Center Friday with the renewal of an area rivalry. Grundy Center and AGWSR open against one another the week before most teams start for the fourth consecutive year. Both teams return talent on both sides of the ball. The Spartans feature a returning starter at quarterback and a pair of former all-staters in the lineup while AGWSR returns a pair of quarterbacks with starting experience and four of five starters from an outstanding offensive line. AGWSR comes into the season with hopes of earning its first playoff berth since 2005 after barely missing a spot last year. The Cougars feature one of the area's top rushing games, with four of their top six rushers back from a team that had six players rush for more than 200 yards. Coach Skip Eckhardt's team worked from a variety of formations a year ago while putting power at the point of attack. Grundy Center also has its sights set on the postseason after barely missing a second straight playoff berth a year ago. Second-year coach Brent Thoren has had a year to establish his offensive and defensive systems, and the team has spent extra time working on its passing game over the summer. Unlike AGWSR's power formula, the Spartans are more likely to spread opponents out in an attempt to get ball carriers into space. Thoren also showed a willingness to adapt to his team's strength a year ago, switching to a more run-

oriented philosophy during the season after the Spartan passing game struggled. Scouting the Spartans The Spartans return many of their offensive weapons from a year ago, including their top passer and four of their top five rushers. Brock Rohler established himself at the quarterback position the second half of the season a year ago, throwing for 350 yards and five touchdowns. Though leading rusher Dylan Lyman has graduated and is attempting to walk on at Iowa State, The Spartans have four other experience ball carriers to turn to. Senior Nick Mauer had a promising start to the season with 185 yards and a 7.1 yards per carry average in Grundy Center's first three games before an injury ended his season. Bryce Moats ran for 453 yards and averaged six yards per carry last year while earning second-team all-district honors and Jordan Clapp ran for 115 yards from the fullback position. The Spartans' fourth returning rusher, Sam Thompson, will likely have his hands on the football as much as anybody this year, though it will be from the center position. GC's offensive line is anchored by a pair of talented returnees. Senior Brady Hook earned first-team all-district and third-team all-state honors a year ago while Nick Saak brings good size and experience. Defensively the Spartans must replace their top three tacklers from a year ago. Hook is the top returnee, having recorded 45 tackles last year including eight for lost yardage. Neil Damon had 43 stops last year and

Johnson. Williams, who split time between quarterback and running back, threw for 180 yards and two touchdowns a year ago while Johnson threw for 197 yards and three scores. The Cougars return their top six tacklers on the defensive side of the ball including sophomore Levi Stockdale, who led the squad with 76 tackles as a freshman. Heitland had eight tackles for loss and six quarterback sacks a year ago while Bakker and Carson Lutterman had five sacks each. Keys to victory This game will be won in the trenches. If AGWSR establishes the line of scrimmage with its size advantage, it could keep Grundy Center's potentially potent offense off the field. If the Spartans can hold their own on the line, they have the ability to take the Cougars out of what they want to do. As with any opening week game, the team that makes fewer mistakes will likely score the victory. Turnovers could easily play a factor, as could penalties. If the game comes down to the kicking game, Grundy Center features an established placekicker (Rohler) and punter (Clapp) while AGWSR will be breaking in a new punter, though Heitland handled placekicking duties a year ago. Kickoff at Spartan Stadium in Grundy Center is set for 7 p.m.

Thomson had 37 stops. The Spartans have one of the better kicking combinations in Class A. Rohler gives the Spartans a reliable placekicker, having hit 10-of-12 extra-point kicks and 2-of-4 field goal attempts last year. His 42-yard field goal against Iowa Valley was the second-longest by a Class A kicker last season. Clapp was a first-team all-state punter two years ago and averaged more than 35 yards per punt last year. Scouting the Cougars It all starts on the offensive line for AGWSR. Returning first-team alldistrict tackle Trevor Bakker leads a line that will likely average nearly 220 pounds per man. Other returning line starters include Dillin Hofmeister, Derek Schipper and Jeremiah Clemons as well as tight end Austin Heitland, who joined Bakker on the all-district first team last year. Though the Cougars graduated leading rusher Nick Pieters, they return four of their next five rushing leaders including fullback Clay Meinders, a 220 pounder who ran for 348 yards and five touchdowns last year while earning first team alldistrict honors. Returnees Cody Williams and Clay Bohner ran for 283 yards each last year while Darrick Kyle-Murphy ran for 200 yards. AGWSR returns a pair of quarterbacks from a year ago in the persons of juniors Williams and Brandon
