Invite community to “Lights On” open house at Ogden Kids Club October is the month to celebrate Afterschool Programs nationwide! The Youth & Shelter Services of Boone County Kids Club will be participating in the 14th annual national “Lights On Afterschool!” celebration. The event is from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 22, at Ogden Kids Club, Howe Elementary School. “We will be one of more than 5,000 sites across the nation that will help send the message that afterschool is key to children’s success, and that we must keep afterschool program’s lights on and the doors open. Families, school officials and community members are invited to help us support safe, stimulating afterschool programs,” Jana Rector, Ogden Kids Club site supervisor, said. This Lights On! event is an opportunity to learn more about the importance and benefits of your local Kids Club program. A variety of activities have been planned, including games and crafts. Everyone is welcome to join YSS of Boone County, the children and parents of Kids Club for supper and an evening full of activities. The YSS of Boone County Kids Club Afterschool Program is a qual-

ity afterschool program for children in grades kindergarten to sixth. It is a nonprofit program made possible through fees paid by parents and grant funding. Kids Club provides a safe learning environment, a relaxed, trusting atmosphere which fosters self-respect, a place for friendships to develop and grow, and contact with thoughtful, caring adults. For parents, the program provides the security of a safe, happy, and healthy place for their children to be while they are at work, a voice in determining the kind of care their children need and receive, and the support and advice from staff who enjoy working with children. YSS is a welcoming and inclusive agency that does not discriminate regardless of race, age, color, ethnicity, sex, religion, marital status, physical and/or mental disability, physical challenge, national origin, gender, gender orientation, sexual orientation, or ability to pay. “We look forward to having you join us for our ‘Lights On Afterschool!’ event. We hope that you will help us keep the lights on for afterschool so that we can inspire all our children toward a brighter future,” Rector said.


Meeting addresses questions on quiet zone Ogden City administrators have been in discussion for two years about implementing a quiet zone. While most everyone agrees that the silencing of train horns in Ogden would benefit the community, it does not come without costs. Redesigning the four railroad crossings is an expensive venture. Then you have to also look at the inconvenience to local business persons. A public meeting was held Thursday, Oct. 3 at the City Hall to provide the public more information about the proposed project. City Administrator Donovan Olson reviewed what has been done up to this point and the current estimated costs. A copy of the engineering report from Bolton and Menk was available for viewing. After the overview, Olson fielded questions from the approximate 20 community members present. Questions addressed included: • Where are we at on the price? • Where will the money come from? • Are there ways to economize by doing some of the project at a later date? • What expenses will be born by the utilities and how will that affect current utility rates? • Does the project have to be approved by the Federal Railroad Administration? • Will it affect our property taxes? Is so, how much? • What are the inconveniences caused by the non-mountable medians? • Will First Street be widened? • Can this project be put on a ballot for voting? Discussion also took place about the petition circulated earlier. Those present were invited to leave comments in writing for the City Council to address at their next meeting.

Habitat for Humanity is seeking partner family Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce plans to build a new house in Boone in 2014 and is actively seeking a partner family for that home.

Ruth’s Reflections W

hilE WiNTER CaME with a vengeance this past week to many parts of the country, and other areas experienced severe weather, somehow Taos was blessed with perfect autumn days. The night temperatures dropped down to the low 30s and there was frost on the ground, but daytime temps quickly climbed up into the 70s with abundant sunshine. As I enjoyed my time outdoors each day I felt very fortunate, surrounded by nothing but beauty, and I was reminded of how this is why I love Taos so much. It just didn’t get much better than this! After the previous week’s intense schedule I was looking forward to a quiet week to rest up a bit. Monday is supposed to be my day off, but I made the mistake of answering the phone early that morning. It was a lady who said she had a miniature horse that she thought may be foundering and she needed help. I have a friend who wanted a mini, so I told the lady I’d get my friend and we’d go take a look at him. The little horse was pastured outside of Angel Fire, about a 45 minute drive. Turns out that the “miniature” was actually more likely a Shetland pony. He was lying down when we arrived and he did not want to stand or walk. He was in a severe founder crisis – lameness, fever and heat in his hooves, and pain, from being extremely obese (about 100 pounds overweight)

and living on a big, rich mountain grass pasture. And, as usual, it was a bit more complicated a situation than the lady had told me over the phone. The little guy obviously needed something for pain, but I make a point to not give prescription pain meds or other medications to anyone else’s animal unless authorized to do so by the veterinarian. But I had brought my tuning forks along, so I gave him a thorough session. At the end he was standing and we were able to walk him up to the barn, not a small distance. I knew that the tuning forks would help, but I was amazed at how much. It was obvious that I couldn’t leave Peanut there. My friend fell in love with him even though he was a pony, not the miniature horse she’d wanted. I made arrangements with the owner for him to be surrendered to the horse sanctuary so he could get the immediate care he needed. She was at work, 45 miles away, so it got complicated real quickly. I couldn’t take the pony without the proper documentation and transfer of ownership, so the person who owned the pasture called the husband. Turns out he and the lady who’d called me were in the middle of a divorce. After he signed the surrender papers, and said he was the legal owner, that he’d bought and paid for him, he muttered something about “but she’s getting him

in the divorce.” Great. So I called her and left a message on her machine, asking her to call me back and confirm that she indeed did want to surrender him and would sign the papers also. She agreed to meet us at the pasture. We headed back to Taos to pick up the truck and trailer, then back to Angel Fire to pick up Peanut. After the papers were signed, I gave him some bute for his pain. By the time we got back to the horse sanctuary, it was 8:30. I unloaded him in the dark and tucked him in for the night. That wasn’t much of a day off. The heat in Peanut’s hooves and fever were almost completely gone the next day. He has improved each day here. He’s gotten lots of love and attention and looking perkier. I have not seen him lay down once since he arrived. After a few days on the pain med, I quit giving it to him because he no longer needed it. I had no idea that I’d be practicing what I’d learned with the tuning forks so soon after the previous week’s class, but I was grateful to have these tools to help little Peanut. I was amazed at how well he responded. If only all life’s crisis’s could be resolved – or helped – by something so gentle and noninvasive. All things considered, though, it’s still a beautiful world! Until next time, Ruth B.

his is NaTioNal 4-H Week! To be honest, I would not be where I am today - able to speak in front of people, identify needs in my community and find solutions to meet those needs, have leadership skills, know how to raise livestock, build a model rocket, sew, and so many more things, if I hadn’t joined 4H. When I was younger, I didn’t know what 4-H was. I had never heard about it. I didn’t know how to perform citizenship or leadership activities. But I joined 4-H and through meetings, activities, workshops, and trips, my world has expanded so much. I have helped chemotherapy patients, the hungry, people in need of clothing, the elderly, youth who live in shelters, and so many more

groups of people, while having fun and gaining life skills. As a young 4-H’er in Boone County, you can do lots of fun things, besides the meetings and the fair. You can go to junior fun night and meet new friends, go to junior Halloween night where you can dress up in cool costumes and get awards for them, and play fun games. There’s Tri-County 4-H camp, Share the Fun, Fashion Day, Communications Day, Extravaganza and much more. You can apply for awards if you turn in your record book. When you get older, you get to do even better things. When you’re in junior high, you can go on the intermediate trip! I went twice, once to Kansas City, where we went to Oceans and Worlds of Fun, the zoo, and went to a Royals game, and once to Minneapolis where we went to the

When you get to be in high school, your opportunities expand again, with the chance to attend State 4-H Conference, be on County 4-H Council, apply for state awards in project areas, and go on the Citizenship Focus Washington D.C. trip. The record keeping, application forms and interview processes help you to gain skills needed in college and the workplace. I love being in 4-H.

Zion Lutheran Women respond to LWML statement Members of the Zion Lutheran Women’s Missionary League met Thursday, Oct 4 and observed 70 years of being a national auxiliary to the church. Christian growth chairman Eldora Heineman led the responsive reading to the LWML mission statement which included assisting each woman of the LCMS and in affirming her relationship to the Triune God, enabling to use her gifts, ministry to people of the world and to “serve the world with gladness.” There are 92 ladies aids in the Iowa District West which has 6,650 members who meet for Bible study and mission work projects. The districts are divided into zones. Ogden is part of the Boone Zone, along with Ames, Boone, Bouton, Perry and Jefferson. In Luke 21 Jesus talks of the poor widow and her two mites and who gave more than anyone because she gave all she had. In 2015 the national LWML convention for LCMS will be held in Des Moines. “Lutheran Women One and All” was sung accompanied by Annette Powers. In Christian education Pastor Brandt led the Bible study “Connecting Heart to Heart.” The focus was on “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation,” Mark 16:15. We need to focus on recognizing cultures around us and own the desire and responsibility to reach out and build bridges and friendships, trying to understand one another. Dorothy Kruse led the business

meeting and welcomed Judy Olson as a new member. Secretary Joyce Boehm reported on September activities and Dorothy Reimers gave the results on mites and Zion preschool donations. In mission services Carol Claussen attended the Zone rally where Sue Ackerman was elected president and Marilyn Westrum Secretary. Carol announced Monday, Oct. 7 at 9 a.m. for tying quilts. All are invited to help. Other announcements were kitchen cleaning done by Wanda Schuller and Dorothy Kruse and visiting shut-ins by Lois Powers and Karen Elsberry. Ogden Manor was also visited in September by this group. On Oct. 16 Ogden Manor will be visited again. Twenty-three members from the Boone Zone visited Iowa Mission Central at Mapleton on Sept. 21. Women are to bring three twelve inch blocks for quilting in November and bring your mite boxes filled, following the suggested list of giving. Hostesses for the day were Karla Kahler and Dorothy Kruse. LWML Service is Sunday, Oct. 6. All members are to wear purple and bulletins are provided by aid members. Closing thoughts were “There is something better than understanding God and that is trusting Him.” Meeting closed with Table Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer. November 7 is the next meeting with hostesses Annette Powers and Lois Powers.

The church of Christ Who are these people? It would be a cruel, insensitive, and heartless Creator that didn’t care about his creation’s well being. Of course the God of the universe, the Creator and Giver of all life, DOES care about His creation. We’re reminded of God’s care for us in Luke 12:6-7 “Are not five sparrows sold for two pence? and not one of them is forgotten in the sight of God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” The Bible also teaches us that we can carry our burdens to God in prayer. Just as we would talk to our earthly father and let him know of our joys, aspirations, and concerns in life, so also we may approach our heavenly Father. It is the privilege of every one of His children to be able to talk to Him in prayer as Father. Galatians 4:6 declares, “And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” When we so approach our Father, we can then, as Peter tells us, cast “all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Perhaps, however, the greatest proof that God does indeed care for us is in the love that He showed us through His Son, Jesus. Does God know what it feels like to lose someone dear to Him? Yes, he does, because God gave His only begotten Son to die on the cross. “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). And Jesus, God Himself, experienced what it was like to live as a man. “For we have not a high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but one that hath been in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15) He knows what our feelings are like when we are sad, lonely, depressed, aching, despondent, and hurting. And he cares. He also experienced those feelings. Yes, God KNOWS what and how we are feeling. It is sad that many will not turn to God’s word as the source of true comfort. God knows each of us better than we know ourselves; so, God can tell us what we need to do to appropriately work through our strong feelings. God’s word has all of the answers to life’s problems and through our faith in it; we can overcome (1 John 5:4).

How can I make sure my family stays warm and safe this winter? – Lisa asked us

Good question, Lisa. The best way to stay warm and

safe is to make sure your gas heating systems and appliances are in good working condition. And make sure to get a carbon monoxide detector. Faulty heating systems can produce carbon monoxide. Signs of a potential carbon monoxide leak can include flu-like symptoms like a scratchy throat, runny nose, headache, drowsiness or nausea. Other indicators include excessive humidity, such as frosted windows.

Our Town


Heineman’s busy schedule allows for very little free time As many of us know, Grant Heineman is a gifted, hard working young man; he is an athlete, musician, farmer, and all-around citizen. Grant’s performance in the classroom, on the stage, and as a volunteer, make it clear that he has earned the award of October Student of the Month. In the classroom, Grant has been on honor roll every semester. His dedication and effort have allowed him to be a member of the National Honor Society, as well as an active participant in the Knowledge Bowl and Physics Bowl. His excellent example in the classroom has also enabled him to be elected to Student Council as the Senior Class President, as well as represent OHS on the Homecoming Court. Grant excels in class, and also on the stage. He is the drum major of the marching band, and also plays the trombone in concert band and jazz band. He sings in the chamber choir and mixed chorus, show choir, has been in the spring plays, and has either been a lead in each musical, or been behind the soundboard. The other stage on which Grant shines is the field or court. He has been in football, basketball, and track, and the statistician of the baseball team. Not only does he set positive examples during games, but he also puts in extra time after

GRANT HEINEMAN Student of the Month practices and on traveling teams developing his speed and endurance. Perhaps what makes Grant particularly unique and deserving of this award, is his willingness to help and generously volunteer his time and energy. We have seen this in his technical support at school as he sets up all assemblies with sound and technology and can solve any problem he encounters. Grant and his father even built the box in

the auditorium to hold the soundboard. Outside of school, Grant volunteers at Zion Lutheran Church in many capacities including communion assistant, and Vacation Bible School teacher. His other time is spent as a part of Westside Hustlers 4-H Club, and for the past eight years he has been raising and showing cattle and hogs. He has also completed projects in woodworking, welding, aerospace, citizenship, and leadership. Currently, he is serving as co-president and on County Council. Due to Grant’s productivity, little free time is available. On top of his many activities, he enjoys helping on the family farm, water sports, snowboarding in Colorado, fantasy football, music, and hanging out with friends. His family is very important to Grant as well. He is the son of Paul and Mari Lynn Heineman, and younger brother to Marcus and Andrew, both 2009 OHS graduates. Thank you, Grant, for your example of leadership, and excellence in all areas of your life. It is our honor to award you with October Student of the Month, and we encourage you to continue in that leadership after you leave Ogden to major in agricultural engineering at Iowa State University.

In set 1 Abbey Gustafson and Katie Lowman each had 4 kills and Gustafson had 3 ace serves topped off by Mallory Melchert’s 2 blocks. The first set played evenly until the score reached 12-12. That’s when Jordan Poock served 6 times to score 5 points, giving the Dogs an 18-12 lead. Ogden maintained control of the match to win 25-19. Lowman tallied 3 kills and Kennedy Kruse controlled the net serving in set 2. Ogden had an 8-7 lead when Kruse stepped to the serving line. The Bulldog served a quick 5 points and then took the score to 17-8, forcing the SEW-Grand coach to take 2 times outs. Kruse served 10 of 10 in a row with 3 aces to dominate the Eagles. Kori Kershner and Gustafson followed, serving 3 points each to finish the match. SEW-Grand tried to hold on but couldn’t overtake the Bulldogs. Ogden took a quick lead with 3 aces served by Gustafson, giving Ogden a 7-1 lead. The Eagles climbed back within a point. Poock then went to the line and tallied 5 points stretching the score to 13-8. Kruse’s perfect serving forced another Eagle timeout. Ogden was up 21-12 by that point. SEW-Grand’s next two servers challenged the Bulldogs, pulling their team within 2, but the Bulldogs held on for the win supported by Melchert’s 8 kills in set 3. “These kills were developed by tremendous passing by Jordan Poock in set 3,” said Coach Shan-

Thompson wins Leon Fox CC Invitational Last Thursday the Bulldogs had a chance to see how they stack up against the rest of the schools in the West Central Conference as most of the conference schools were present at the Leon Fox Invitational at Perry. “We’re encouraged by tonight’s results, but there is still plenty of work left in the coming weeks,” said Coach Ryan Kobliska following the meet. The boys finished third in Class B behind two tough teams in Panorama and Nodaway Valley. Ogden was led by meet champion Trey Thompson in a personal best time of 17.28. Kobliska said that winning a race has been one of his big goals. “With his work ethic it was just a matter of time. He has steadily improved each week this season. We really had a strong effort from all seven of our varsity runners.” Andrew Stumbo finished 13th to also earn a medal. Zane Buxton set a new personal best time of 20.43. In the junior varsity race Devon Johns and Garrett Kahler set new personal bests. BOYS TEAM STANDINGS 1. Panorama .......................... 2. Nodaway Valley ................. 3.

Bulldog Kylie Westberg had her best match of the year with 6 kills (3 in set 3) with no errors last Tuesday at West Central Valley. Ogden won all three sets 25-20, 25-11, 25-22. According to Coach Zinnell, part of their game plan was attacking WC Valley’s zone 1 because she felt they defended it poorly. “Kylie took clear advantage of their weakness,” said Zinnell. Melchert dominated at the net with 9 kills (5 in set 3) and 4 blocks. At the serving line the Bulldogs took turns dominating: controlling set 1 was Jackie Lawler with 7 serves and 2 aces; set 2 belonged to Kershner and Gustafson. Kershner was 8 for 8 at the line with 3 aces, followed by Gustafson going 6 for 6 with 1 ace. “In set 3 Jordan took her turn frustrating WC Valley,” said the Ogden coach. “She served with 100% accuracy, 11 for 11 with 2 aces.” Melchert finished the match with 4 blocks and Gustafson had 10 digs. Ogden was in complete control, holding the Wildcats to only 17 attack attempts and 12 kills. The unpredictably play required Ogden’s libero, Poock, to scramble as she worked to put the Bulldog attack into a system, drawing compliments from the opposing coach. This resulted in Ogden’s 82 attack attempts and 31 kills. A

Late strike downs Pella Christian Missed extra point proves to be the difference in a 14-13 win by AL TRELOAR



Any fAnS AT PELLA Friday evening were concerned about the weather as storms had been forecast. A storm did blow up in the fourth quarter, but it was a storm not from the skies but on the field as a bolt of lightning from the arm of quarterback Caleb Frye struck Luke West in the hands and he crashed through a defender into the end zone to tie the score with just 26 seconds showing on the clock. Another bolt from the leg of Kolton Christle split the uprights into a stiff breeze for the extra point that would break the hearts of the Pella Christian faithful and seal the comeback victory for the Bulldogs 14-13. For more than three quarters the Pella Christian Eagles had dominated the line of scrimmage, employing a punishing ground game in the name of Mason Howerzyl and a stiff defense to forge a 13-0 lead at the start of the fourth quarter. Ogden finally got something going when Luke West stepped in front of a Colton Collins pass and returned the interception 35 yards to the Eagle 30 yard line. With 8:53 to go Frye hit Grant Heineman with a 12 yard scoring pass to pull to within 6. The Bulldogs got the ball back with 5:51 left in the game and mounted a sustained 14 play drive to set up the dramatic finish. “Nights like this are why I love coaching,” said Coach Garrison Carter. “Backs against the wall, nothing going our way, and we found a way to get it done. So proud of this group of kids, a lot of teams would have quit, but we didn’t. Obviously Luke West made some huge plays for us. His interception really swung momentum in the game and was the first shot of life we had all night. “He made a huge play on fourth down to catch the game winning touchdown. It’s something he’ll always remember and I’m extremely proud of him. I was really happy with our pass blocking up front. We don’t have the biggest line, but they really work well together and have done a great job protecting Caleb the last few weeks. Wins like this are great, but we still have a lot to improve on. We’ll be excited to get back to work on Monday. “It’s been a really long time since Ogden has beaten South Hamilton. They have a very good team again this year and we will have to play a great game Friday night to beat them.” Ogden’s leading rusher once again was Austin Lentz, carrying the ball for 86 yards.

effort was led by Senior Henry Haglund with 19 total tackles and sophomore Nick Ross with 17. first Quarter The Bulldogs got the ball first and made two first downs before the Pella defenders forced them to punt. The Bulldogs got the ball back on downs when they stuffed a fourth and one attempt by the Eagles but punted it back after five plays. The defenses were dominant and neither

combatant could gain an advantage as they traded punts to end the first quarter Second Quarter The Dogs began the second frame by punting to the Eagles once more. Pella put together an eight play drive but a fourth down incomplete pass gave the Bulldogs the ball back on downs. Three running plays only managed to gain 5 yards against the inspired Eagle defense and the Dogs punted again. And then the trouble started. Pella’s hard-nosed runner Mason Howerzyl carried the ball 8 times in the next 11 plays, the last of which being a 14 yard touchdown. The point after kick was wide and the Eagles led 6-0. Ogden took the kickoff and was seemingly stopped but a 57 yard bomb from Frye to L. West gave them new life, first and goal to go at the 10. Three running plays moved the ball to the three, but a fourth and goal quarterback sneak was stopped by the Eagles on the one yard line as the half ended. Third Quarter Pella Christian got the second half kickoff and went back to work, running the ball for ten plays of a thirteen play drive with Howerzyl hammering the last 8 yards to score. The kick was good and the Eagles owned a 13-0 lead. The Dogs offense still was not in gear and they punted. The Eagles were in charge as their ten play drive gave them the ball in Ogden territory as the quarter ended.

Austin Lentz (23) rushed for 71 yards in the hard-fought win over Pella Christian. no. 51 is junior Gyena Hansen.

fourth Quarter The Eagle drive was continuing when Luke West gathered in an enemy pass and returned it 35 yards to the Eagle 30. Lentz, Christle, and Frye took turns running the ball before a third and three pass from the twelve found Heineman for the score. Christle’s kick attempt was perfect and the lead was trimmed to 13-7. Ogden’s defense, inspired by the turn of events, forced the Eagles to punt. The Bulldogs took over at their own 21 yard line with 5:51 to play in the game and methodically began to march down field. The drive was highlighted by a 30 yard pass completion from Frye to Jake West but a sweep on third down lost yardage and the Bulldogs faced fourth and goal at the five with the game on the line. Frye took the snap and led L. West perfectly, catching him in stride as he slanted from his wide receiver position toward the goal post. The receiver was met at the one by an Eagle defender but he was not to be denied, crashing into the end-zone to tie the score with 26 ticks left on the clock. A perfect kick by Christle and Ogden led 1413. The defense mopped up and the Bulldogs owned a tough road win.

LEfT: Bulldog quarterback Caleb frye hit on 12 of 18 pass attempts for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns last friday night. The Bulldogs are 5-1 on the season, their only loss at the hands of Van Meter. Ogden hosts South Hamilton this friday. -Photos by Al Treloar
