By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Marci Duncan and Kim Kelly, co-chairs of the Lake City Pool Fundraising Committee, want people to know that although the city has bonded, allowing the project can go forward in 2014, the fundraising continues. Donations will still determine the number of optional features that will be included. Diving boards, slides, umbrellas and other items are considered optional additions to the project. With over $1 million raised through donations and other

activities, added the city’s financial commitment, the project has gone past the $2 million minimum for the project to proceed. The scheduling goal is to have construction begin in August of 2014, after the swim team season ends, with construction completed before the swim team season starts in 2015.

Absentee ballots are available Judy Howrey, Calhoun County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections announces that absentee ballots are now available for the Nov. 5 City Election. A qualified voter may request an absentee ballot by filling out the “Official Absentee Ballot Request Form” at the Auditor’s office. Forms are also available on the Calhoun County website at www. Requests from voters to have an absentee ballot mailed to them must be completed and received by the Calhoun County Auditor’s Office not later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov.


The swim team has 80 participants. The city is financing its commitment with 40 percent paid for through local option sales tax over six years and 60 percent coming from a 15-year bond. The bond will increase property tax by about $1 per $1,000 taxable valuation for two year and then increase another $1 for the remainder of the bonding period. However, the $1 increase occurs at a time when another bond of about $4 is retired, making a net decrease in that year of about $3 (a decrease from the present rate of about $2). All these figures are approximate. The aging pool was originally built in 1957 and is experiencing many effects of deterioration. One major problem is that a large crack has developed with patches slowing but not stopping the leaking. The present pool and bath house will be torn down with nothing left but a hole in the ground. The new pool will be built at the same location. The new pool will include zero

depth entry, lap pool with six swimming lanes in accordance with swim meet requirements (the current pool is not regulation length or depth), updated bath house and concession areas. Among the ongoing fundraising projects are donor wall donations and the alumni challenge. One of the alumni, Bill Bernau, class of 1950, has issued a challenge and is matching donations (from anyone, it doesn’t have to be someone from the class of 1950 or even an a alumnus) up to $100,000. There is still $80,000 potential in donations for matching funds, but the person needs to make a request that the donation be in response to the Bernau challenge. The match is not automatic. There are also some grant opportunities being pursued. For a potential large donor, the city is offering naming rights for a contribution of $250,000. Whatever size the donation, it is appreciated.

Ballots can be returned by mail in the postage paid envelope included in the packet to the Auditor’s Office and must be postmarked by Monday, Nov. 4. Ballots returned in person to the Auditor’s office must be returned by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5. They may NOT be taken to a regular polling site. The Auditor’s office address is: Judy Howrey, County Auditor, Courthouse, 4l6 4th Street, Ste. l, Rockwell City, IA 50579. Polls will be open from noon until 8 p.m.

Lake City pool fundraising is still active

RCPD seeking two more officers During a September Rockwell City Council meeting, the council approved a proposal to seek two new officers for the Rockwell City Police Department. One officer will replace Jamie Buenting who was killed on Sept. 13 in the line of duty. Another officer is currently on leave but if there is a situation in which there are five officers on active duty, it would only be expected to last a matter of months before a retirement brings

the number back down to four. Currently, the RCPD is utilizing sheriff’s department personnel and other law enforcement agencies to continually man the police department. Mayor Phil Heinlen has speculated that the city might eventually consider having four full-time and one part-time officer to adequately man the force around the clock, seven days a week.

Calling Rockwell City Area Veterans

Veterans and current service members who are from the Rockwell City area or currently residing in the Rockwell City area, as well as family members of veterans or service members, living or dead, from the Rockwell City area, are asked to contact Lathelle Strandberg by mail or in person with information for a future tribute to those who have served their country. She will be collecting information at the Congregate Meals at the Rockwell City Community Center on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 10 and 11. Her address is 735 Lake St., Rockwell City, IA 50579.

Paradeless Marshals

Jim Brown, president of the Southern Cal School Board, and Mike Sexton, president of the Rockwell City/Lytton School Board, were honored during Homecoming week for their leadership on behalf of the South Central Calhoun School system. The two led a consolidation effort that resulted in whole grade sharing and a referendum that unites the district into one district on July 1, 2014. The two were named 2013 SCC Homecoming Parade Marshals but the parade was cancelled because of the weather and the recognition took place at pep rally in high school gym on Friday afternoon.

Titan flags flown around square

Purple Titan flags are flying around the Rockwell City Courthouse Square, as the result of a project started by the Rockwell City Rotary Club. Since Rockwell City no longer has a homecoming parade, Rotary members decided to do something to show support not only for the South Central Calhoun football team, but for all SCC activities. It is hoped that businesses around the square will purchase the flags that are flying around the square. The flags can also be purchased by anyone wishing to display them at their homes or at businesses not on the square. Anyone SCC Royalty 2013 This year’s South Central Calhoun Homecoming Royalty are (ladies, left to right) Shelby McKinney, Stephanie Hood, Queen Ashley wishing more information about these flags can contact any Rotary member.

Obama should hold firm on dubious law

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm

The Mystery of the Lost Dog Collar Buddy loves his walks. He visits neighborhood dogs Shay, Chloe, Rosie, and Teddy, making sure he leaves his scent just on the other side of their fence where they can’t get at it. He chases cicadas and toads and, if he should spot a rabbit or squirrel, tugs at his leash, stands on his back legs, and yips in a high-pitched squeal. Buddy is not a barker. Too cute with his black and white markings, and curled tail, he is a treat to be with. He actually smiles on these two-a-day walks. The neighbors get a kick out of Buddy, bending down to give him a pat and a behind-the-ear scratch. Rolling on his back for a tummy rub, Buddy is everybody’s buddy. When we got back to the house, as I took off Buddy’s leash, I noticed his collar was missing. “What the …? Was he not wearing his collar when I put his leash on? Did he slip out of his collar while on our walk, and I didn’t notice?” I keep his collar pretty loose so if he gets hung up, he can slip out of it. “Buddy, where is your pretty, purple collar?” He cocked his head and looked at me with his eyes sparkling. If Buddy could only talk. The purple collar was Holly’s collar, and I’m sentimentally attached to it. Buddy has slipped out of his collar before, but it was readily found in the house. Mary and I searched the house over. No collar. Buddy seemed content to run around collarless, naked as a jaybird. We retraced our steps through the neighborhood. We asked the neighbors, “Have you seen a purple collar?” No one had. I have a ten-by-ten-foot pen outside of a window, with steps on each side, so that Buddy (and previously, Holly) can go in and out. Holly is buried in the pen, and I have her grave covered with bricks and

stones. Of course, Buddy is quite curious about the grave, and tries to dig around the stones. “That must be where the collar is!” The revelation was like a shot in the dark. I searched the pen thoroughly, praying to St. Anthony, the Saint of lost objects. Still, no collar. This went on for four days. I was about to call the vet to get a duplicate rabies tag made. The law requires all dogs to wear this tag. The collar I could replace. It wouldn’t be as pretty as Holly’s purple collar, but any port in a storm. I heard Mary holler, “The collar!” She had just let Buddy in from his trip to the pen. I rushed to the window. There it was, all covered with dirt, the purple barely distinguishable. I had searched that pen quite thoroughly. Apparently, Ole Buddy Boy had buried his collar (he’s quite the digger), and then dug it back up. He looked at us, with his tongue lolling out, real pleased with himself. St. Anthony always comes through. Mary scrubbed the collar with

hand soap, and the bright purple reappeared. There would be no “third-time-is-a-charm” with Buddy’s collar. It was obviously too loose. I tightened the collar down a notch and held it in front of Buddy. He extended his nose for me to slip it on, his tail wagging. He likes Holly’s collar. I checked the tightness. I can still put two fingers easily between the collar and Buddy’s neck, so he can squeeze out of it if necessary. I often wonder what Holly Dog would think of Buddy. Their personalities are as different as night and day. Their “link” is the purple collar and, of course, me. Thank God for dogs. Have a good story? Call or text Curt Swarm in Mt.

I’ve never been impressed by what little I understand of the Affordable Care Act. The fact that nobody fully understands how it will operate or what its impact will be is part of the reason I don’t like it. According to polls, most Americans don’t like it, although opposition is significantly less when it is called the Affordable Care Act rather than Obamacare. I have some sympathy for the seemingly irrational fear expressed by opponents that after the law is fully implemented, it will be too popular to eliminate. The fear is not actually irrational. We would be better off if we had a different approach entirely to health care. The federal government should operate a single payer plan or get out of health care entirely. The latter is extremely unlikely and the former will become just as unlikely when the Affordable Care Act is an integral part of our national health care system. The only scenario that would then lead to rejection of the law would be the catastrophic failure predicted by the most pessimistic of Obamacare opponents. Opponents of the law have tried every tactic available to thwart implementation. Repeal was part of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, but (big revelation here) Romney lost. The law was challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court and the challenge lost. Congress repeatedly voted to repeal the law, votes that were repeatedly unsuccessful. All of these strategies were reasonable and honorable, although futile. The refusal to fund the government, causing massive furloughs of government workers, is really not an honorable strategy. Some Republican leaders, such as Michele Bachmann, reacted with glee during the initial days of the shutdown. As the effects began to be felt, that Republican faction backed off on the celebratory public stance

and tried to alleviate some of the more controversial impacts. They proposed legislation to keep open monuments, to fund the Women, Infants and Children program and to fund some measures to fight disease epidemics. They are trying to shift blame to Democrats who refuse to fund various agencies in a piecemeal fashion, perhaps with some success among the most strident administration critics, but with no one else. The only bipartisan shutdown mitigation measure approved was one to provide back pay to furloughed employees when the government becomes funded again. That is the only honorable way to treat federal employees but it has to be the worst outcome philosophically for fiscal conservatives -- to pay for government services we are not getting. As bad as the shutdown becomes, a worse impact would result from the government not raising the debt limit. Default is expected on Oct. 17 if the borrowing limit is not raised. In August of 2011, a last minute deal between President Obama and Republicans who controlled the House of Representatives, averted default. The fact that the U.S. government came that close to defaulting had negative consequences. According to Wikipedia, “On Aug. 5, the credit-rating agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded the credit rating of US government bond for the first time in the country’s history. Markets around the world as well as the three major indexes in the US then experienced their most volatile week since the 2008 financial crisis with the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunging for 635 points (or 5.6 percent) in one day.” We will again be getting close to defaulting or maybe we’ll actually default. Unless there is some resolution to the issue on a long-term basis, the impact could be even more

devastating this time because we will have established that the threat of default will be used over and over again as a negotiating strategy. Obama’s willingness to negotiate in 2011 cannot be repeated if we want the world financial community to believe we have any economic stability. The President has been harshly critical of the Republican position, making implicit reference to a statement by Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.), although not mentioning Stutzman by name. “We’re not going to be disrespected,” Stutzman told The Washington Examiner. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.” One news pundit who advocated a face-saving strategy cited the example of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis in which the Soviet Union met the United States’ demand that missiles be withdrawn from Cuba in return for the U.S. quietly removing missiles from Turkey, allowing both John Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev to save face. However, the two situations are entirely different. The withdrawal of missiles from Turkey was not well-publicized. The connection to the Cuban missile withdrawal was not made known to the American public until decades later. The Soviet public was not well informed on any aspect of the crisis, so the only group that Khrushchev needed to save face with was the Soviet Politburo. Each side was able to present a separate set of facts to constituents. The only way the Republican leadership can save face with their constituents is to make the public believe that the GOP used the threat of not raising the debt ceiling to force the administration to negotiate. For the sake of the economy, this cannot be allowed to happen again.

Contributed by SMCH Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH) ranks second in the nation when it comes to cleanliness. Becker’s Hospital Review, a leading source of cutting edge business and legal information for hospital and health system leaders, recently published its list of 49 Cleanest Hospitals in the U.S. The list included hospitals with the highest percentage of patients who reported that their room and bathroom were “always” clean in the HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey. Having a clean room to recuperate in while ill or after surgery is crucial to the health of the patient. “Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) occur when patients seek medical care for a health condition, and an infection results from this care. According to Iowa Department of Public Health healthcare acquired infections affect 5% to 10% of hospitalized patients, causing nearly two million infections and 90,000 deaths, and cost $4.5 to $5.7 billion each year. Cleanliness directly impacts patient outcomes. Our housekeeping department does a phenomenal job setting an maintaining the highest possible standard,”  says Kathy Collins, Director of Continuous Quality Improvement, Stewart Memorial Community Hospital. According to Shirley Naughton, housekeeping department supervisor at SMCH, “Each and every day we

Members of the SMCH Housekeeping staff include: (front row left to right) Bliss Habben, Shirley Luth, Linda Adam, Jane Janssen, (middle row) Shirley Naughton, Jami Baas, Tina Thomas, Scott DeVries, (back row) Sara Holst and Linda Ringgenberg. (the housekeeping staff) are cleaning what is visibly soiled, but it’s actually what you can’t see that is so very important for the housekeeping department in a hospital to clean effectively with disinfectants. Proper dwell time for disinfectants to be effective is so important and our staff takes the job very seriously and with pride on doing it right.” In addition to daily room cleaning housekeeping staff views the time between a patient being discharged and a new patient admitted to a room is of optimum importance. “We look at each discharge as a preparation for

one of our own family members. If we daily cleaned that patient room and it is discharged later that day, we clean it all over again, but it’s ‘all surfaces thorough.’ We wipe with disinfectant on all surfaces. This include the inside and outside of cupboards, bedside stands, nurse call controls, all bed surfaces - literally everything,” states Naughton. During the hours in between housekeeping’s cleaning schedule, the nurses and nurse aides do many tasks to keep the patients room tidy. Naughton acknowledges their efforts, “I want to thank the nursing

staff as their work also has an impact on the perception patients have on the cleanliness of their room and bathroom. We have a wonderful staff throughout the entire facility that assists in maintaining cleanliness throughout.” Naughton concludes, “Being named second in the nation this year after receiving 23rd place last year for ‘percent of patients who reported that their room and bathroom were “always” clean’ is such a humbling acknowledgement and I am just so proud of the staff for this outstanding achievement.”

Dana Coale of Gainesville, VA, arrived Tuesday the 24th to visit her parents, Vernon and Shirley Hamilton. On Wednesday she drove to Kansas City, MO, for business meetings, returning Friday afternoon for the parade and homecoming activities at Prairie Valley High School in Gowrie. Eugenia Hamilton’s daughter, Raeann, was in the homecoming court. On Saturday they were in Fort Dodge for Dillon Hanlon’s flag football game. Dana returned to Virginia on Sunday. Eugenia and her children were also occasional visitors at Vernon and Shirley’s home. Barbara Winkelman met with the Girls of ‘45 on Friday Sept. 27th at Uptown Cafe in Jefferson. Bob and Karen Gingery and Liz visited in Slater Sunday with David and Jeana, Ava and Katelyn Gingery. Anna Gingery of Eldridge had been at David and Jeana’s for the

Jim and Mary Rutter were guests at Sunnyview this past week, coming from Door County, Wisconsin. They were visiting Delmar and Jo Ann – Jim is Jo Ann’s brother. Jim saw many friends from his past when they joined everyone in the dining room on Monday. He said it was fun coming home and being welcomed so sincerely by friends of yesteryear. They toured Rockwell City and surrounding areas of interest and enjoyed the beautiful fall day. What fun it is to have family and friends come for a visit. Residents of Sunnyview love a party and it happened in the dining room on Saturday, September 28 in the afternoon. Vicki Fagan celebrated her 70th birthday with all the residents, family, and friends who were a big part of her life in the past seventy years. Vicki’s brothers, Gary and Denny Griswold, were here from Minnesota and Wisconsin to help with the party. Special thanks also go to Lu Ann Schuster and Louise Kramer, who provided a lovely table decoration, balloons and a corsage. Randy Wistoff and Kris Kolbe were a big help also in assisting with the celebration. All four are cousins of Vicki. Other guests from Kansas City and New York traveled a distance to make the day a memorable event. Barb Jones and helpers catered the buffet. Food was plentiful and enjoyed by all. Vicki extends thanks for all the cards and calls she received. All thoughts of kindness were appreciated. And that wasn’t all that happened on Sept. 28. Later in the evening, and perhaps a bit into Sunday morning, Sunnyview had a power outage for about three hours. Could it be that a squirrel got stuck in the wrong place and met its demise?

Meals served Oct. 14 through Oct. 18 at the Rockwell City Community Center (712)-297-7401. Monday – Ham Loaf, Sweet Potatoes, Calico Corn, Strawberries Tuesday – Calico Bean Casserole, Corn Bread, Tangy Coleslaw, Oranges & Pineapple Wednesday – Baked Chicken, Baked Potato, Peas, Cinnamon Raison Applesauce, Tomato Juice Thursday – Pork Sandwich, WW Bun, Baked Beans, Fruit Compote, Raspberry Lemonade Friday – Spaghetti, Broccoli, Apricots, Cheese Bread

Also, we heard that a raccoon came to call over the weekend. We don’t know what all it did at Sunnyview, but since it is nowhere to be seen it must have found other interests. We hope that it didn’t decide to run back and forth across the highway and play chicken with the cars – plenty of unfortunate raccoons have been spotted recently on the roadside. (This brings to mind the following. A female dog got in trouble with authorities. She had given birth close to the side of the road and was cited for littering.) We offer our sympathy to the family of Bonnie Surratt, who passed away recently. Bonnie was a Sunnyview resident for many years before moving to Sunny Knoll. We remember her smile, her caring manner, her humor, and her Texas accent. She used one of her memorable phrases when she described a warm summer day, saying it was “hotter than a 40 dollar pistol.” Thank you for your friendship, Bonnie. Maybe we have been saving money in a way this past summer – there has not been as much need to mow the lawn. We hope that we don’t have to bring out the shovels and snow blowers very soon. What are our chances for a green Christmas?


It is with heavy hearts we send our condolences to the Casey and Schoepke families. Dennis and Darrell will be missed by all who knew them. We have been busy at Sunny Knoll this past week! We tried our hand at making homemade apple butter in the crock-pot. The ladies helped me peel and slice all of the apples. We cooked it all afternoon and night. It smelled absolutely heavenly. Then we had it with homemade bread while we played cards. I must say we did an excellent job. Apple butter has been a favorite of mine since I was a child and brings back so many memories. Apple Butter: 5 lbs of apples – peeled, cored and thinly sliced. 1 cinnamon stick, ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of packed brown sugar, ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg, ½ teaspoon of cloves, ½ teaspoon of allspice. Directions: Stir all ingredients together in slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours. Remove and reserve cinnamon stick. Place apple mixture into food processor and process until smooth. Return mixture and cinnamon stick back to

the crock pot and cook uncovered, on high, for about 4 hours or until mixture is thick and dark. Place in containers and store in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months. Now we did it just a little different and cooked it on the lowest setting of our crock-pot over night, then used the blender to blend it. We also got out our fabric and made a fabric flower garden. Working with fabric brings back a lot of memories for our ladies. Many were quilters or made their children’s clothes, we have a few dress makers too. So we cut our fabric flowers and hot glued them to our fences posts. If you stop by you will have to check out our handy work, they are hanging on the doors down the halls. Of course the best part of this was reminiscing. Well we are gearing up for Halloween as well. Planning our annual Halloween Party and we hope to see all the little trick-or-treats too! Stop in and see us! Jennifer Roberts~Activity Director

My thought for the day is -- The forest would be far too quiet if only the most beautiful birds sang.  The Trivia question for the week is -- What two towns were named for the first letters of the names of Six pretty women who accompanied railroad officials to the sites? On Tuesday the Helping Hands Club met at the JJ Hands Library in Lohrville. President Kathryn Myers welcomed everyone. Cards are being sent to Pat Kevlin, Sharon Vogel, and Edythe Cavanaugh.  The Club will have a tree at the Festival of Trees this year. The Roll Call was -- Your favorite word. They are seeking new members so if you are interested in joining and like to make Lap Robes or tying them for hospital and nursing home patients, call Kathryn Myers or any of the members. We aren’t called The Helping Hands for nothing. There will be no November Meeting and the club will eat out in December, the time and place to be announced. Lunch was served. Gerry Hendricks is a patient at Stewart Memorial Hospital

following surgery. Get well quick Gerry. Bob and Pat Underberg from Pinedale, Wyo.,  were guests of Marge Hobart on Thursday through Tuesday. A mini family reunion was held with Carol and Larry Hood, Lela Gergen and brother Mike and his wife Lourie on Sunday at the Pizza Ranch. At the  Class of 1957  reunion at Boyd Hildreth’s at Twin Lakes,  13 attended  with 7  deceased  out of a class of 26. They had a potluck at 4 p.m. Saturday. Guests were Herman Seil, Marylin Nicholson,  Bonnie Miller, Frank Walters, Jerome Delurey, Bill Kibby, John Kerns , Rita Hendricks, Marcelyn Green, Rene Anderson, Jillelln Pierce Figbaum, Cheryl Klemier Lawmen, and Virginia   Legore Courter.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Residents and team members started the month of October with a trip to Pizza Ranch in Manson to enjoy the noon buffet. Everyone appreciated the appealing selection of pizzas and some tried the broasted chicken with sides of mashed potatoes, veggies and salad bar. The meal finished with a favorite: peach

dessert pizza! After the meal, the Shady Oaks bus took a driving tour of Manson, Pomeroy, Jolley, and North and South Twin Lakes. The weather was sunny and warm so it was a beautiful day for sightseeing! The fall colors were just beginning to show, crops were being harvested, and it was enjoyable to see folks’ many fall and Halloween decorations out in their

yards! We even happened to see a flock chickens, ducks, and geese in someone’s backyard in Jolley. The sunshine sparkling on the water at Twin Lakes was a delight to see as well. Arriving back home at Shady Oaks, residents chatted that going out for lunch and a bus ride while the weather was still nice was really a treat!!

Rally for the Cure

With October being National Breast Cancer Awareness month, the local “Rally for the Cure” organization decided it was a good time to take stock of how their efforts went this year and submitted an article along with photos of the balloon release and the group of participants.

The 11th annual “Rally for the Cure” golf tournament was held at the Lake City Country Club on June 15th. This year, the ambassadors for the tournament were Kerri Shipley and Pam Reece, who took over for Sue Mohr. Sue founded this tournament 10 years ago. Sue’s help during the transition this year was greatly appreciated. The Rally for the Cure is a grassroots program that works to spread awareness about breast cancer in support of Susan G. Komen through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. The Rally was created to empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and reminding them to get their annual screening to ensure early detection. This event has evolved into much more than just a golf tournament. This year there were 48 women who participated. The event begins with a balloon release to

honor those who have survived breast cancer and those who have passed. Throughout the day the women are catered to by male volunteers as they make their way around the course, with a different activity at each golf hole. These include champagne service, chocolates, & roses. The tournament concludes with prizes, drawings, and a catered lunch specially prepared by the volunteers. All of the women received a door prize. Several local businesses and individuals made generous donations to the tournament this year. The money raised through silent auction of gifts and financial donations helped to make this one of the most successful fund raisers to date. This year we were able to donate $3142. This money will be used to support lifesaving breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs. Our thanks and gratitude goes out to all of the donors, volunteers, and golfers who helped to make this day possible. With your help we have raised awareness and contributed to the cure. While we are looking forward to next year’s tournament remember to do your part in educating women throughout the year.

South Central Calhoun Cross Country runs in Pocahontas and Denison By Doug Dornath South Central Calhoun’s cross country teams had perhaps its best day of the season as a whole as the Titans traveled to the Pocahontas Area Invitational meet held Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Pocahontas Golf Course. The Titans boys varsity team won the team title, the teams first team title of the season, as the team scored 48 team points. SCC’s Ryan Daisy was the individual champion for the varsity boys race as he crossed the finish in 16 minutes, 48 seconds. The SCC varsity girls team placed second overall as a team with 46 points as six of the Titan girls placed in the top 20 in the individual standings. The Titan varsity girls were led by Sydney Batz, who placed fourth individually with a time of 16:15. “It was a great day for Titan cross country,” said SCC head cross country coach Brian Knapp. “Ryan Daisy won the boys individual title and the team wins team title. The varsity girls place six of seven runners in top 20 and all medal. The girls finished second to Class 1-A third-ranked Pocahontas Area and beat ranked 1-A Emmetsburg girls. Spencer Moon won the middle school boys individual title and Amaliya McCaulley won the middle school girls individual title and middle school boys win team title. It was a super day in what has become a very good, competitive meet. The kid’s attitude was great the minute they hit the bus today and carried through the whole day.” In addition to Daisy’s individual varsity win, the SCC varsity boys team got a fourth place finish from Tanner Schrad in 17:35, a 13th place finish from Lucas Farrington

in 18:10, a 16th place effort from Matthew Nieland in 18:16 and a 17th place finish from Zach Ludwig in 18:18. For the varsity girls at Pocahontas, Mady Dick returned to the varsity line-up for the first time this season and placed sixth overall in 16:37. Teammate Abby Clark was one second behind Dick as she placed seventh in 16:38 and teammates Megan Hardy (14th, 17:07) and Katelyn Decker (15th, 17:10) rounded out the team scoring for the Titan girls at Pocahontas.

OCTOBER 9, 2013

SCC Titans Victorious in Homecoming Game By Doug Dornath Even a 12-0 fourth quarter deficit and an hour lightning delay could not prevent the South Central Calhoun Titans varsity football team from remaining undefeated in Class 2A, District 2 football play as the team celebrated 2013 Homecoming Oct. 4, in Lake City. The Titans scored a pair of touchdowns in the final 12 minutes of play to steal a 13-12 district contest victory from Forest City to improve to 3-0 in district play and up the team’s overall record to 3-3. “We squeaked one out on wet and dreary homecoming evening,” said SCC head football coach Bryan Case. “This was an evenly matched and a hard fought game by both teams. We just happened to come out on the winning side of it.” Trailing 12-0 with 9:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Titans offense finally got onto the scoreboard on a one-yard touchdown run by Jeff King. Jake Petzenhauser added the point-after kick to trim the Indians lead to 12-7. On Forest City’s next possession, the Indians were held to a fourth-

down and 15 with 8:21 left in the game when the contest was suspended by the officials for an hour due to lightning in the vicinity. When play resumed over an hour later, the Titans took over after a fair catch on their own 41-yard line and marched 59 yards in 10 plays culminated by a Petzenhauser 7-yard pass to Cyle King to give the Titans a 13-12 lead with 4:21 remaining in the contest. The Titans attempted a two-point conversion to try to go up by three points but the pass attempt was incomplete. Forest City was held to a threeand-out on its next possession, as was the Titans offense and the Indians took over with 1:11 remaining in the game at their own two-yard line after SCC punter Nick Robinson helped pin Forest City back near its own goal line. Forest City was able to execute a couple of big offensive plays in the final minute of the contest, driving down to the Titans’ 18-yard line but turned the ball over on downs with around 34 seconds left in the contest. “Offensively, we really couldn’t get anything established in the first

half, but I was proud of the way our kids responded in the fourth quarter,” said coach Case. “We were down by 12 and just kept fighting and found a way to get the job done. I thought our defense played well and our special teams were much improved. We have another tough game next week versus Garner-Hayfield. We’ll need to play a complete game and play with some emotion, if we’re going to remain undefeated in the district.” For the game, the Titans had 226 yards of total offense compared to 250 for the Indians. Petzenhauser led the Titans on the ground with 74 yards rushing on 17 attempts while Jeff King had 46 yards on 13 attempts and a rushing touchdown. Derrick Henkenius led the Titans in receptions with four for 46 yards while Cyle King had three catches for 12 yards including a touchdown. Petzenhauser finished 10-for-16 passing with 91 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions against the Indians. Defensively, the Titans were led by Petzenhauser with nine tackles while Rylan Richardson added eight tackles and finished with one sack.
