County to move forward with condemnation proceedings By JOHN JENSEN

The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Grundy County will be moving forward with condemnation proceedings to acquire property for construction of a new county annex building. County Attorney Kirby Schmidt briefed the Board on the next step in the proceedings to acquire the property at 801 Seventh Street in Grundy Center, which is owned by Zenor, Inc. He said a chief judge will appoint a six-person commission consisting of two local property owners, two individuals who work in a banking-related field and two individuals who work in a real estate related field plus three alternates. Those individuals will determine the amount of money Zenor, Inc. is entitled to if the County goes through with condemnation. Schmidt said the respondent (Zenor) may challenge one commission member without a reason, leading to the need for alternates. Schmidt said he expects the commission to be appointed this week. He added that the judge cannot rule on whether or not the county is permitted to condemn the property. “You have the power to condemn for a valid public purpose,” he said. “That decision is made when this document is presented. The only way that can be challenged is if it’s not a valid public purpose.” Schmidt said it is possible for the County to receive the decision of the commission as early as November. IN OTHER BUSINESS, Public Health Manager Nancy Haren introduced Wendy Monaghan as Grundy County’s new public health lead. Haren said Monaghan could eventually fill her role when she retires at the beginning of next year and that a second person will be hired in the department. Haren presented the department’s quarterly report, noting that grant funds have been used to purchase 12 curb cuts and 11 bike racks in Conrad recently. She added that the home healthcare aide problems that plagued the County earlier this year have been resolved with the partnership with the Western Home Community. CPC Administrator Todd Rickert briefed the Board on funding issues that could force him to move some things around within his department. He noted that rules appear to be changing quickly and that when you think you have a handle on things, something else changes. The Board approved a utility permit from Windstream so that it may upgrade lines and improve Internet services in the Morrison area. The Board also received the Recorder’s quarterly report and approved the Annual Urban Renewal Report for Fiscal 2013. It also passed a resolution to terminate the Development Agreement between the County and Olderog Wholesale Tires, Inc. of Holland. The county’s agreement with the Olderog had been that it would receive Tax Increment Financing funds so long as it kept four employees. After tabling payment of the funds late last year, the company was found to be in violation of the agreement, leading to its termination.

Long road leads new pastor to Colfax By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register HOLLAND — Sometimes pastors get a call from the Lord that they at first do not understand. It is the kind of call that takes a pastor from his lifelong home in the South to a small, Midwest church located a few miles from anywhere. And sometimes that pastor could not be happier to be there. Just two short weeks ago, the Rev. Robby Grames began his new life as pastor at Colfax Center Presbyterian Church after serving in a similar role in Minneola, Fla for the past 6 1/2 years. “If you had to pick a place on the map where you thought the Lord would put you, this would probably not be it,” he admitted. “I’m a lifelong southerner.” Yet Grames said what he’s found in Holland and Grundy County is just what he and his family of six were looking for. All it took was a visit. “When we came to visit, our kids immediately connected with some of the other kids and (wife) Susie really connected with some of the ladies,” he said. “Just getting over the initial shock of the total cross-country move, I think that was relieved by just getting here and getting to know some of the people. It’s a lot to process, but I think, after being here, we both feel it’s confirmed that this is where the Lord has us and we feel called.” Grames said he first felt the call to the ministry while attending high school in Savannah, Ga. After earning a bachelor’s degree from Mississippi College he attended Samford University’s Beesom Divinity School and soon after began

Colfax Center Presbyterian Church’s new pastor, Robby Grames, is not only getting used to a new congregation, but also his first time living in the Midwest. (John Jensen/The Grundy Register photo) his ministry as a youth pastor at a small church outside Birmingham, Ala. After serving there for 5 1/2 years, including a stretch as the church’s interim pastor, he and his family moved to a church in a small town outside Orlando, Fla. “It was a great church, but Florida’s full of retirees so there wasn’t a community in the church,” he said. “People were driving 30 and 40 minutes to come on Sunday morning, but you didn’t see them a whole lot. Here (in Holland) everybody knows everybody and

there’s more of a community feel to it, so that was one of the things that was really attractive. “It was a good 6 1/2 years (in Florida), we got to know the people real well, we made some impact in the community,” he said. A big attraction to the Colfax Center Church for Grames was its 141-year history during which it has had only 11 pastors. The last of those, the Rev. Larry Hoop, served for 24 years before retiring earlier this year. “Sometimes you’re expected

to move around, but here there’s a climate of accepting the pastor and expecting him to minister — seeing your kids baptized, seeing your kids get married. That’s something very important to me.” Grames said. Before that happens, however, Grames, his wife and four children will need time to settle into their new home in Iowa. “There’s things that we’ve never seen — obviously in Florida we’ve never seen cold, winter, snow,” he See GRAMES page 2

City Council approves project to install new street, stop-and-go lights

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — The Grundy Center City Council gave the final go-ahead for new street and stop-and-go lights during Monday’s regular Council meeting. The project will be financed through a 10-year, $400,000 in general purpose bond purchased from GNB. Jeff Heil of Northland Securities told the Council that he looked at both purchasing the bonds through the bond market and from GNB, noting that the increased interest rate from GNB (3 percent) versus the bond market (2.6 percent) is offset by lower fees through the local bank. Five years of the bonds through GNB are protected while the other five years are callable. “I guess after looking at it, my recommendation is that you go with Grundy National Bank (GNB) at the 3 percent, that way you don’t have to do the continuing disclosure annual report,” Heil said. The Council approved the construction after a pair of citizens spoke during a public hearing. Steve Hinderhofer asked the Council several questions about the project, including how high a price level the lights will be compared to others available, whether the City could pay cash for the lights, whether the project will affect property taxes, whether the city can go without the stop-and-go lights at the corners of Sixth and Seventh Streets and how old the current lights are. Mayor Rex Van Wert said the current lights have been in place 20 years or more since being renovated, and at least a decade before that. He said the stop-and-go lights must remain in place, as they are on a state highway, and that the cost of the bonds will come out of taxes, but that much of the added cost will be offset from debt that is being retired.

Heil added that, even with the new bonds, Grundy Center will be at approximately 40 percent of its legal debt limit while most other cities its size run closer to 60 percent of the limit. Public Work Director Dan Bangasser said the lights the city is purchasing are in the middle to low price level while Councilman Dave Stefl explained to Hinderhofer that the city does not have enough cash on hand to purchase the lights without bonding. Bob Greany also spoke during the hearing, agreeing that there is a need for new street lights. He added, however, that the city has other pressing needs such as problems with the sewer system. “We’re not excited about (the expenditure for lights) either, but we are trying to look at that sewer project work that could be out there and some of this rainwater problem infiltrating the system,” Stefl said. “We’re having a study done refocusing on the problem spots, and then we know that we may have to be doing some repairs.” Greany also asked whether it was the city, and not Grundy Center Municipal Utilities, that owned the lights, suggesting that GC Muni be asked to pay for the replacements. Van Wert assured Greany that the city owns the lights while adding that the utility will also be contributing to the project as utility lines currently overhead are moved underground. The Grundy Center Police Department will likely be purchasing new body-worn cameras to replace out-of-date in-car cameras. Reserve Officer Brian Shimon, who is also the assistant police chief at the Meskwaki Settlement, brought a camera from the Meskwaki department to show the Council and sung praises of the system. “It’s worth its weight in gold as

far as liability is concerned,” he said. The cameras are activated by the officers and will record exactly what they see. Shimon said the camera also works as a public relations tool and helps keep his officers in check, as they know they are being recorded. Van Wert suggested that the City find a place in the budget to purchase the system, suggesting that Community Betterment Funds could be used. Shawn Weber addressed the Council about an ordinance that allows single-car driveways to be no more than 18-feet wide. He said he wishes to widen his driveway to as much as 26 feet and that several neighbors he has spoken to, including those on both sides of his driveway, have no objection. Van Wert said the ordinance restricting single driveways to 18 feet is old. He said he has spoken to Public Works Director Dan Bangasser and that both agree that there is no reason to restrict them to that width. He added that the city will look to amend the ordinance to allow wider single driveways. As the amendment would take time, and Weber said he hopes to get work done before winter, he asked if it would be possible to get a variance to allow him to complete the work before the amendment is passed. “I don’t see anyone at the table objecting to that,” Van Wert said while instructing Weber to work with Bangasser to get the proper approval. Council also approved the city’s open burning period for Oct. 21 through Nov. 29, noting that burning is not allowed in streets. INRCOG’s Colleen Simmons was on the agenda to speak to the Council about the Black Hawk Creek Water Trail but did not attend the meeting.

Holloway is new face of local economic development

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Grundy County economic development has a new face. Angie Holloway took over a role that has been held by a variety of people in recent years last month and has been learning the ropes as program director with the Grundy County Development Alliance. It is a role, she said, that is slowly evolving. “In the past, there’s been somebody in this position who’s both worked for the city as maybe a chamber director and had this role as well,” she said. “What happened was the chamber took up 90 percent of this job and this job kind of took up the last 10 percent. I see this job as kind of the face to the Grundy County Development Alliance. What I see in my role is being that face that gets out there into our industry and our manufacturers and into our small businesses.” Holloway has a background in health care administration, having managed rural health care clinics and having worked human resources.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day observed Holloway By CRYSTAL HUISMAN News Correspondent “Even though she is not here she is part of our family,” said Nicole Rhoads when speaking of the daughter she lost during the 20th week of pregnancy last January. After a routine ultrasound, Nicole and her husband Christopher were excited to learn they were having a baby girl. Little did they know that less than a week later, Nicole would be giving birth to a stillborn baby. “Kherington was perfect,” said Nicole. “They did all the tests and there was nothing wrong with her.” A candlelight ceremony was held at 7 p.m. on October 15 to mark Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Area women and their families lit candles in memory of their lost loved ones. “Part of the intent for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is to raise public awareness for the needs of bereaved parents,” said Robyn Plocher, After Care Special-

ist for Abels Funeral Homes. “It’s often an invisible loss if you lose a baby in early pregnancy and their grief is often overlooked.” Many of the women in attendance at the candlelight ceremony are members of a group called Empty Arms, which is meant for women who have lost a child during pregnancy or in the first year of life.. The group meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. at Grundy County Memorial Hospital. “It’s nice to have women close by to open up to,” said Nicole. “We all share our tears. A lot of the women are very private, but we can talk about it and get through things together.” “One of the important needs for people who are grieving are telling their story,” said Plocher. “(The ceremony) is an opportunity to tell the story in a safe place where people are going to be able to accept it, hear it and understand it.”

continue to support the current manufacturers Sometimes you kind of step on people’s feet when you say we’re trying to bring in new businesses — it’s kind of that fine line where we want to promote the sites that we have and the buildings we have available. We kind of look at it as a trickle-down theory as far as supporting the small businesses that we have.” Holloway said, while Grundy County itself has a small population, it still sits well in terms of potential for growth. “I think what benefits Grundy County is proximity to the road system that we have, and I think that’s semi-attractive,” she said. Other smaller roles that Holloway is filling include coordinating the Grundy County Community Foundation and working with the Barn Quilt group. “Right now it’s just kind of getting people to know what the GCDA is,” she said. “You meet people and they say ‘Well you’re the barn quilt people’ and that’s not the case. That just happens to be one of the groups that fall under my role. I’m just there to make sure that the meetings happen and that things get followed up on. I’m that person that contact person that people call when they have questions, disburse maps, those sorts of things.”

Grames From page 1 said. “There’s going to be a lot of firsts, but I think it’s kind of fun actually to experiencing it together — the small town, parsonage, all of that bowled up into one.” “I’ve always told my wife, I want to live someplace where there’s four seasons, he said. While the climate may be different, Grames said the people he’s met have been much what he has come to expect working in other small towns.

From page 1 than 10 years in the health care field, and when her family relocated to Grundy County from Manson, she decided a change in her order. “I really wanted to get out of the medical field,” she said. “It was a constant battle and the unknown was kind of scary. “I like meeting new people, I like learning new things and those sorts of things and so I think that’s what attracted me to (this role),” she said. “(This is) a great way for me to learn the area.” Holloway is currently working hand-in-hand with Jeff Kolb, who is serving as the Grundy County Economic Development Director in addition to a similar role in Butler County. Holloway said Kolb has certification as an economic development director, something the county needs as it applies for information and grants at both the state and federal level. Holloway said she could be in a position to train for a similar role as things evolve. Along with Kolb, Holloway is spending time with local businesses and manufacturers finding out what their needs are while also keeping the door open for any new businesses that wish to come to the county. “I think the major role of the GCDA is to retain the current jobs that we have,” she said. “We want to

“I’ve found the people here to be very friendly, down to earth, gracious and that’s what we’re accustomed to,” he said. “We’ve been in small towns throughout our ministry.” “I think this church has a lot of potential to really share the grace of God here in this community along with other churches,” he said. “Because we’re not alone in this, we’re all part of the same team. I think the key is the Gospel and the good news - that’s what people need to hear.”

Cover crop planting deadline extended to October 31 DES MOINES –Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey today said that farmers participating in the state water quality cost share program that are intending to plant cover crops have until October 31, 2013 to get the cover crops planted and still qualify for assistance. This extension only applies to state funded programs and is only available for those species that are likely to establish well, specifically winter rye, winter triticale and winter wheat. “Everything has been behind this year due to the extremely wet spring weather, so some farmers have been unable to get cover crops planted as timely has they had anticipated,” Northey said. “Scientists from Iowa State have assured us there are still

significant water quality benefits to planting certain cover crops and that is why we have extended the deadline until the end of the month.” The recommended cutoff date for seeding cover crops in Iowa previously was October 15th. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has received guidance from Iowa State University that cover crops planted after this date still have the potential to provide substantial reduction in nutrient losses and soil erosion, so the Department extended the deadline until the end of the month. Farmers who had been approved for cost share assistance and are still unable to get cover crops seeded should contact their local Soil and Water Conservation District office.

Arlington Place recognizes Manly Drug during American Pharmacists Month

From The

Cheap Seats

I spent much of the past week working on a project that I’ll very possibly never see any reward for. It’s a project you’ll never see in print and that will most likely never be written about after today. Mid-October is the deadline for newspapers across Iowa to submit entries to the Iowa Newspaper Association’s Better Newspaper Contest. Contest is a highlight of our year, when the best of the best are recognized for their best work. A big part of winning at Contest is picking the entries to send to contest. For me this means thumbing through all of our work for the past year to find stories that I not only think are good, but that will also stand out to judges. For the longest time I found Contest to be a frustrating experience. I would enter work I thought was By JOHN JENSEN pretty good, and when the winners were announced I would see others I work with get recognized, only to see my own week turned back. It was pretty tough congratulating the others while crying inside. Over the years, I started to learn what kind of stories and photos win contests. They aren’t always the best stories and photos, but those with the best topics. I might write a phenomenal story about the local city council, but the above average story I wrote about a lady and her cat will most certainly draw more attention from the judges. And a photo that draws emotion … far more likely to win than a photo that doesn’t. A great example of that is a photo on my calendar which happens to be the one that I won with a year ago. Technically it’s not the greatest photo — the main subject has his back to the camera — but it also shows the raw emotion of a thrilling victory. The more I see this photo, the more surprised I am that it caught the judges’ eye. So what was I looking for in contest this year? Stories and photos that I thought had a chance to win. I won’t tell you what I entered, simply because I’m pretty sure that will bring bad luck. I will say that I had a story or two that I felt could do well and a sports photo that I know would draw my eyes as a judge. We’ll find out if we won anything in a couple of months and find out where we placed with those pieces at next year’s INA convention. • • • I also missed the chance to recognize the people I work with during National Newspaper Week, which was actually a couple of weeks ago. We

usually do a page or house advertisement promoting the week, but this year it passed without our noticing it. The newspaper business is a little like a lot of others and a lot unlike most. Any person who has worked any amount of time in the business will tell you that it’s not for everyone … but that it can also be very fulfilling. The challenge in this business is dealing with both the public and deadlines at the same time. It’s a fast-paced business, particularly when deadlines loom, and people who thrive in the business tend to have a little bit of ego. Our Grundy County Mid-America Publishing staff has seen a lot of change over the past year, not the least of which came with the addition of a new sister newspaper in Conrad. For one of the first times in my professional career, I can now truly say that I have a partner editor whom I trust and would hand off any assignment to. Our staff includes three full time people, one part-time on-site employee and a few correspondents. We each have our own role, and without any one of us the paper would look very different. Three of our four local staffers are newspaper veterans, having worked in the business nearly 60 years combined. Lisa Bakker, who puts together both our Grundy Register and The (Conrad) Record, has been working out of this office since 1991 and is the only member of our staff who was here when Ralph and Marlene Kothenbeutel owned the paper. Most of the layouts you see in our paper are her work — she designs most of the pages and processes many of the photos. Many of the items you submit go through Lisa. Publisher Clint Poock came to Grundy Center after working for papers in Waverly and Waterloo. In addition to sales, which is where Clint is most visible, he is also the manager for not only our office but also for the papers in Conrad, Allison and Clarksville. The newcomer to our full-time staff is Lisa Kanagy, who came to us after working at the Grundy County Memorial Hospital’s long-term care unit. This is Lisa’s first time working in the newspaper business and she’s done a good job picking things up. She’s the person you are most likely to see first when you come to our office counter, as one of her main roles in our office is customer service. Lisa also puts together our classified advertising page and fulfills various office roles. Correspondents are an important key to our success at small newspapers. We have three people who fulfill various specific roles for us that make our newspaper better. Diane Paige has been The Grundy Register’s Dike correspondent for many years and is an ideal eyes and ears for us there as a former postmaster. Patti Rust is in her second full year as our sports correspondent and helps us put together what I humbly believe is one of the more comprehensive weekly sports sections you’ll find. Crystal Huisman is the person I call when there’s a news story I want to get to but cannot. She has a great touch with human interest stories. All three of these fine ladies are fantastic with a camera and seem to enjoy what they do. I want to thank each and every one of these people for their dedication to our paper. I also need to thank you, our loyal readers, without whom we would not be here. A key to a healthy newspaper is people who both want to read it and who want their items in the paper. We seem to have that here. Some say newspapers are dying, though in smaller communities that’s anything but the truth. We continue to thrive and will be there to give you the news that cannot be found anywhere else.

October is American Pharmacists Month. According to the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), the goal is to encourage consumerpharmacists relationships engaged in ongoing communication about medication use and changes which lower the risk of adverse effects and increase better health outcomes. According to the APhA, you should choose your pharmacist as carefully as you choose your doctor. The likelihood of medication errors occurring decreases substantially when patients know their pharmacist and feel comfortable asking questions and seeking the pharmacists’ advice. Ultimately, you have the responsibility for managing your health care, but your pharmacist can help if you keep him or her up to date about your health and the medications you are taking. We are very fortunate in Grundy Center to have Dave Stefl and his team of pharmacists and assistants at Manly Drug. Dave and his team of professionals provide invaluable services to the residents at Arlington Place; answering questions, educating us about drug interactions, changes in manufacturer medications, side effects, most effective administration methods, insurance changes and cost effective ways to manage prescription and nonprescription medications are among the many services they provide. Dave and his team are important members of our care team providing excellent services to residents at Arlington Place. Congratulations on a job welldone, Dave and team! Cathi Burnette, Manager Arlington Place

Golden Birthday

Happy 18th birthday on October 18th! Love, Mom and Jeff, Tyler, Tanner, Tanner & Chloe

Showing at the Center Theatre on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. will be faith/ family/drama Grace Unplugged, starring AJ Michalka, Kevin Pollak and Shawnee Smith. This movie is rated PG, running approximately 100 minutes in length. There will be no 7:30 show this week due to auditorium improvements. THERE WILL BE NO MATINEES THIS WEEKEND. In Grace Unplugged, 20 years ago, Johnny Trey (James Denton) charted the Billboard top five single, "Misunderstood." Then, the hits stopped coming and he crash landed hard, a one hit wonder. Johnny found Christ and a new life for his family, far from the Hollywood Hills. He now serves as the praise music director of Homewood Community Church just south of Birmingham, Alabama. Serving alongside Johnny is his, now 18 year-old daughter, Grace (AJ Michalka). Beautiful, extraordinarily talented and restless, Grace aspires to more than just singing at her church. With the help of Mossy (Kevin Pollak), her dad's former manager, Grace records a cover version of her dad's old Top-10 hit, runs off to Los Angeles, and begins to taste the kind of stardom she's always dreamed about. Yet with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels more and more pressure to compromise her values, further straining her relationship with her parents. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith … or rediscover it?

Devils Gate

By SUE ECKHOFF Grundy County Heritage Museum About 5.8 miles southwest of Independence Rock (Wyoming), or a day’s travel by wagon train, was yet another trail landmark for the Oregon Trail – Devil’s Gate. Here the Sweetwater River has carved a narrow cleft in the rocks, about 370 feet deep and 1500 feet long. Its 30 feet wide at the base, but nearly 300 feet at its top. Wagons were forced around the cleft, but emigrants often stopped to hike around and carve their names. Often they would see big horn sheep climbing the hills. There were several murders in the Devils’ Gate region, leading some emigrants to believe the area was a bedeviled site. The Shoshone and Arapahoe Indians attributed Devil’s Gate to the actions of an evil beast with enormous tusks that once roamed the area, preventing the Indians from hunting and camping in the region. Folklore was that the Indians became disgusted and decided to kill the beast. From the passes and ravines the warriors shot the beast with a multitude of arrows. The beast, enraged, tore a hole in the mountains with his large tusks and escaped. Today emigrant trail ruts are still visible in the area. The Sweetwater Valley contained three distinctive granite landmarks: Independence Rock; Devils Gate, and Split Rock. The last, Split Rock, had guided travelers for decades before the emigrants arrived. The distinctive “gun sight” notch in the Rattlesnake Range was visible to the emigrants for the better part of two days. Rising 1000 feet above the prairie, Split Rock aimed the emigrants directly at South Past, still more than 75 miles away. The regions gentle landscape offered the emigrants a short but much needed respite on their long journey. A short distance west of Split Rock was the Pony Express station, stage station and telegraph station in the early 1860’s. In 1862 50 soldiers from the 6th Ohio Regiment were encamped there to protect the emigrants. Legend is that the soldiers built a tunnel between the post and the river so that they could get water without being seen by the Indians.

Healthiest State Walk

Students at Grundy Center Elementary were among many statewide who participated in the 2013 Healthiest State Walk. Students walked for 30 minutes on a route around the school, gaining encouragement from teachers and classmates along the way. Statewide nearly 300,000 Iowans participated in the walk. Pictured are (left to right), Ellery Luhring and Lilly Lewis. (John Jensen/The Grundy Register photo)

Most of us probably remember the word “metamorphosis” from our high school biology class, where we learned that many insects have a larval or immature stage but then undergo rather extreme changes as they enter their adult stage. Caterpillars turning into butterflies are probably the best example, but tadpoles turning into frogs are equally dramatic. Human beings undergo less dramatic physical changes, but we sometimes undergo psychic or spiritual metamorphoses which can be very extreme. Conversion experiences are sometimes that way. A person living a wayward life may be so moved by a religious experience that they completely change their ways, almost overnight. Sometimes the changes are so drastic that they are hardly recognizable to their friends and family. We often describe these experiences as if we had emerged from a cocoon or the scales had fallen from our eyes. But, our blindness is sometimes of our own making. And sometimes we prefer to stay in our cocoons when what we really need is to venture forth and spread our wings in order to experience growth. Indeed, conversion experiences are scary because we don’t know what life is going to be like with our new wings, but if we are going to fly we have to take a leap of faith and emerge from our cocoons. – Christopher Simon

Dog owners beware

Dog owners have been warned for years about the dangers of pets eating mushrooms found growing in the yard. This story started out on a quiet Wednesday morning with Vern and his dog Sandy. Vern starts his day early and takes Sandy for the car ride to the Grundy County Lake and Boy Scout Park "Rat Park". This morning was peaceful and uneventful until Sandy decided to do a little digging and decided to uproot the alleged poison mushroom. Vern, remembering reading the hazard of dogs ingesting certain types of mushrooms, braved taking away something that Sandy wanted to call her own. He did not lose his hand in stealing food from the dog so he proceeded in taking The alleged mushroom back to town for proper identification. Vern left the possible poison food on my steps and called me in to help determine if we should be concerned for the dogs health since consuming a portion of the dirt covered object. Vern goes to the internet looking for answers to his concern and I am seeking assistance from a mushroom

hunter in helping identify two pieces of the unknown. Picture this: I pick up the two pieces, knock off most of the dirt and decide it looks like the brown flat mushroom seen in the woods. Then right before my eyes, in the course of more dirt removal, the separation happens and the inside of the alleged mushroom takes on a look of red pizza sauce with dirty cheese. Sure thing, dirt covered, dark brown crust, red pizza sauce and dirt covered cheese! No dog that I have ever known has died from eating a dirt covered slice of pizza. After a deep belly laugh we made a phone call to Vern asking for his assistance in confirming the happy ending of the hazard of the dreaded poison mushroom health issue. How do you spell relief, PIZZA. And if Sandy could talk she would have told us she was eating the piece of pizza that she buried several days before. All the proper steps were taken in protecting the welfare of Man's Best Friend.

DES MOINES ­— It may be hard to believe, but graduation is just around the corner for high school seniors and fall is the time for them to apply to colleges and make postsecondary education plans. The Iowa College Student Aid Commission (Iowa College Aid) encourages all seniors to take advantage of the college planning resources provided in I Have A Plan Iowa® and at to help with this process. “One of the worst reasons for choosing a college is because that is where their friends are going,” explained Karen Misjak, executive director for Iowa College Aid. “The tools and resources available to Iowa students and families can help them make more informed decisions.” Revisit Your List As students narrow down their lists of potential colleges, they should continue to investigate the institutions that offer fields of study of interest to them. Through their I Have A Plan Iowa® account, students can browse colleges and universities that match characteristics they find important. There is also a Compare Schools feature that allows users to do a side-by-side comparison of schools. By utilizing the School Finder, students can perform a more detailed search for schools based on over 30 different factors such as size, tuition, specialized academic programs, cultural diversity and more. Iowa College Aid also provides information on colleges and universities in the state at By selecting “Iowa Colleges and Universities” from the Higher Education Data Center, students can access college and program information, retention and graduation rates, and the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard that provides information about each college’s value and affordability. Keep an Open Mind Don’t initially rule out a college or university because of its published cost. The actual cost of college can be much less than the “sticker price”.

Advertise in

The financial aid award package from the college may make it more affordable than initially thought. To get a general idea of the estimated net price after financial aid has been taken into consideration, students can use the college or university’s net price calculator. Iowa College Aid links to each college’s net price calculator in the “Iowa College and Universities” section of the Higher Education Data Center at Determine How Much You Can Afford to Borrow When selecting a college, it is most important to focus on the end goal – graduating and securing a career. The choice should be a balance of cost, academics and campus life. In the current economy, in which many families have been unable to save for college and students face a tough job market, it is increasingly important to align college choice with cost and career potential. To keep from joining the ranks of debtridden college graduates, students should select a college where the loan debt can be kept at a reasonable level relative to their future income potential. The Student Loans Over Projected Earnings (SLOPE) calculator in can help students calculate estimated monthly payment amounts for student loans and compare it to projected earnings for their career choice. The results will indicate how much they can afford to borrow. “It is important for students to remember that while they will be spending a few years at college, they will spend considerably more years paying back student loans,” said Misjak. “It is our hope that seniors will utilize resources, such as those provided by our agency, to make informed decisions when selecting and ultimately paying for college.” For information about the resources and services provided by Iowa College Aid to help Iowa families plan, prepare and pay for college, visit www.IowaCollegeAid. gov or contact Iowa College Aid at 877-272-4456.

Benefit planned for Dave Lee Family CONRAD — Residents of the BCLUW communities and the surrounding area have the opportunity to give back to a local family that has had their year drastically changed by their granddaughter Lydia’s diagnosis of ALL Leukemia in January and the labor of love that has followed in helping her and her family cope. Dave and Linda Lee of Conrad have helped daughter Veridee and her husband Scott Hand get through this year by helping to care for the couple’s four other children: Abigail, Josiah, Selah and Charis – the first month after the diagnosis at the Hand’s home in South Carolina, and then during the summer in Conrad at grandma and grandpa Lee’s home. Dave was a longtime teacher and coach in the BCLUW Community School system. He retired from coaching softball after the summer of 2012. The benefit evening will be held Sunday Oct.27 at the BCLUW High School in Conrad. The evening will begin with a free-will supper catered by Hometown Foods from 4:30 to 6 p.m. During the supper a silent auction of various merchandise baskets will be held. Cari Teske, Darci Steckelberg and Shannan Callaway are in charge of organizing the auction. At 6:30 p.m. a talent show will begin. During the show, several pies and cakes will be auctioned. The cakes will be made by Denise Rabbit and Mary Stattler, while pies are coming from ISU student McKinzie Geocke of State Center and Perkins Restaurant in Marshalltown. The ordeal for the Lee family began Jan. 23, as the Hands headed to the emergency room in Columbia, S.C., with 7-year-old daughter, Lydia. Something had not been right for a couple of months, but bone pain was now an every night thing and her abdomen had swollen to the point of nearly getting stretch marks. The next day, the doctor’s made the diagnosis that Lydia had ALL Leukemia. They would put in a port the next morning

and give Lydia her first lumbar chemo treatment. After the second phase of chemo treatments, the bone marrow extraction revealed Lydia’s body was still producing Leukemia cells. In May, the train jumped tracks. Doctors said they needed to stop the chemotherapy treatments immediately and flush Lydia’s body of the chemotherapy drugs. With the chemotherapy treatments not working, a bone marrow treatment would be necessary. The process of recovery was projected to be 45 days, but it soon became apparent that Lydia was not recovering quickly. Soon it became clearer that Abigail and Josiah might not be able to complete the next year of home schooling, due to Lydia’s recovery dictating their schooling and the time Veridee would have available to give to the home school lessons. So once again Dave and Linda opened their hearts and home to the family by asking Veridee and Scott to pray about allowing Abigail and Josiah attend school at BCLUW. This was a tough decision for the family, but upon returning to see Lydia and seeing the restricted living conditions and the reality of her frailty, the two children understood why grandpa and grandma had made the offer. Their first day of school was full of energy and excitement, learning locker combinations, meeting new friends, and be one of many in a classroom. After the first week of school Abigail, Josiah, Dave and Linda found a schedule that worked for them. Life had changed drastically for all of them. Help with the auction and supper is still needed. If you would like to help in any way contact Bob Kruse at 641-366-2402. Monetary donations to help the Lee family may be sent to Kruse at Box 142, Conrad, Iowa 50621. Checks should be made out to the Dave Lee family.

Prison inmates â&#x20AC;&#x153;give backâ&#x20AC;? through Leader Dog Program

By Rebecca Peter The inmates of the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility (FDCF) are there for a variety of crimes. The Leader Dog Program at the prison gives inmates an opportunity to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give backâ&#x20AC;? to society. The program trains dogs for the visually impaired. James McKinney, acting warden at Fort Dodge, introduced the program at the facility in Rockwell City in 2001. McKinney started the Leader Dog program at Fort Dodge in 2010. According to Brenda Birchard, Coordinator of FDCF Leader Dog Program, there are currently 66 â&#x20AC;&#x153;handlersâ&#x20AC;? at the Fort Dodge facility. Leroy Seiler and Mark Greiman, formerly of Garner, are two of the puppy handlers at Fort Dodge. Seiler has been incarcerated since 1980. Mark Greiman since 1999. Birchard noted, the number of assigned â&#x20AC;&#x153;handlersâ&#x20AC;? ď&#x192;&#x;uctuates with the number of puppies ready for training and â&#x20AC;&#x153;sponsorsâ&#x20AC;? for those puppies. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;sponsorshipâ&#x20AC;? costs $500). Dogs used in the program are purebred or a mix of one of the three accepted breeds: Labrador retriever, German shepherd or Golden retriever. They enter the Fort Dodge facility at approximately 12 weeks of age to begin training as guides for the blind. The dog handlers under go training for the program as well. Any of the inmates at FDCF are allowed to attend the training classes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but for one of these men to be assign a puppy, that man must hold and retain the highest behavioral level that this institution expects from them,â&#x20AC;? Birchard said. The dogs and their handlers are together for a year. The dogs are taught a series of basic commands (sit, lay, stay, leave it, etc.). Afterwards the dogs â&#x20AC;&#x153;graduateâ&#x20AC;? to even more intensive training at the Leader Dog Campus in Michigan before they are ready for a career as a dog for the visually impaired. Lynn Smith and Jim Arnold, Garner Lions Club members, are puppy â&#x20AC;&#x153;sponsors.â&#x20AC;? The Leader Dog program is supported by the Iowa Lions Club organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I found out [Seiler] was a part of the Leader Dog program, I wrote him a letter and started communicating,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. Eventually Smith visited Seiler at the prison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had his dog with him, because when they train the dogs theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re with them 24/7.â&#x20AC;? Smith attended his ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst â&#x20AC;&#x153;Puppy Daysâ&#x20AC;? last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program is put on by the inmates,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so impressed with the whole program I decided to sponsor a dog. I got to name a dog. His name is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Garnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife, Kathy, was a little skeptical about me communicating with someone in prison - much less going to see them.â&#x20AC;? he continued. Smith got Kathy to go to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Puppy Days event at Fort Dodge, on Aug. 23. Kathy Smith became an enthusiastic sponsor - only this time, she wanted to pick the name for the dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like Lynn said, this is something that gets infectious,â&#x20AC;? Jim Arnold stated. Arnoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement began two years ago when he was a trustee for the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was fortunate enough to be assigned as the contact for the Leader Dog program in the prison,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the most eye-opening event Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in my life. I saw we were actually getting something back

from people who are serving time, that will carry on and beneď&#x192;&#x17E;t a lot of lives.â&#x20AC;? Occasionally a dog just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out as a leader dog. Those dogs are given a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;career changeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (perhaps as a helper dog for a disabled person) and still lead useful lives, Arnold said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely proud to support the program,â&#x20AC;? he said. Another Garner club, the Garner Modern Homemakers, sponsors a Labrador retriever named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Linnsu.â&#x20AC;? Greater independence District Lions Governor Gary Schriver of Mason City, can personally attest to thoroughness of the training for dogs. Legally blind for 30 years, Schriverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog is Logan, an eight-year-old Labrador. Leader dogs are an alternative to using a white cane, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a very independent person. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to sit around and wait for people to take me places I need to go or having to ask someone where I have to go.â&#x20AC;? At ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst skeptical, Schriver applied for and received a dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing that ever happened to me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are taught to get the blind person to where he needs to go, in the most safe manner possible.â&#x20AC;? The dog is also trained to evaluate the situation when he gets to the corner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He will basically watch the trafď&#x192;&#x17E;c for me,â&#x20AC;? Schriver said. Shown how to get to a place just once, Logan will take Gary there - to the grocery store, to the mall or even to a speciď&#x192;&#x17E;c store in the mall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can go any place now with this dog and be conď&#x192;&#x17E;dent of where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;?Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really amazing.â&#x20AC;? Because of the Leader Dog Program, it cost Schriver nothing to acquire Logan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had to buy this dog, it would cost about $40,000.â&#x20AC;? Benefits to inmates The beneď&#x192;&#x17E;ts of the Leader Dog Program to the visually impaired are obvious. But what about for the inmates at Fort Dodge? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel there are a plethora of beneď&#x192;&#x17E;ts for these men, but also for those in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Brenda Birchard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some [inmates] have lost a sense of self assurance, but went on to nurture another living creature that went on to guide a visually impaired person, has re-instilled self-conď&#x192;&#x17E;dence into that person that hopefully will enable that person to reenter our community with a positive mindset, making it safer for all who come across their paths. Birchard has witnessed inmates who upon either receiving a puppy for the ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst time or saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodbyeâ&#x20AC;? to one, exhibit publically, emotions, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that their court records would testify directly opposite to!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All in all, I feel these precious creatures heal the mind sets of these men more than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever know,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe while the puppies are residing with us, they are inadvertently guiding these possibly psychologically impaired handlersâ&#x20AC;Śbut upon reentry they will now adhere to the standards that society expects from them - all thanks to a furry four-legged creature.â&#x20AC;?

IF-A/AGWSR girls’ team finish third at Conference Meet By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent EAGLE GROVE – The Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR cross country teams completed at the North Central Conference Meet in Eagle Grove last Tuesday night, where the Cadet girls earned a third place team finish behind Humboldt and Algona. Bethany Lippert and Jessica Lippert both received conference honors, finishing sixth and seventh place individually. Taylor Risius finished 28th, Eri Siems was 30th, and Brittany Fisher 32nd to complete the Cadet girls’ team scoring. Amanda Smith and Taylor Dougan went 41st and 43rd. “I am beyond pleased with the performances of all of the runners throughout the entire season and tonight,” IF-A/AGWSR girls’ coach Jamie Maxwell said. “As we look to run at districts in Waverly next Thursday, we will continue to prepare the way we have all season; focusing on our ability to run through the toughest parts of the race, and ending without regrets. If the girls can end the night saying they gave the race their best, then that’s what counts. We’ll see where that gets us next Thursday.” Maxwell also noted the success of the JV girls’ team at the conference meet. “The NCC meet ended the JV team’s season on a high note with a first place team finish,” Maxwell said. “One of our goals at each meet is to run together in a pack and pass other teams as a pack, and that is just what they did. It was neat to see the IFA-AGWSR girls at the front of the race from start to finish.”   Desiree Folsom won the JV race, followed by Paola Cordova in fifth place (her second meet of the season due to injury), Maddy Faga in seventh, MaeAnna Ubben eigihth, and Tessa VanBuskirk 11th.   “We had a decent night of running even though the weather was tough,” IF-A/AGWSR boys’ coach Robert Frenchick said. “Landon Boomsma came through again, finishing 20th, in a time of 18:16. Jacob Sundholm finished behind him with a decent time of 18:42.” Other finishers for the Cadet varsity boys included Alan Bruflodt in the 33rd place spot, Miguel Reyes

Wolverines clinch District 3 title behind Eiklenborg, defense By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register DIKE – Gabe Eiklenborg returned a pair of first-quarter punts, leading Dike-New Hartford to a recordbreaking 85-6 victory over West Fork Friday and its second straight Class 1A, District 3 championship. “We knew it was for a district championship tonight and I wanted our kids to come out and play like district champions,” Wolverine coach Don Betts said after the game. “We got a fast start and once we got rolling things went pretty well.” D-NH (8-0 overall, 5-0 in district play) scored every time it touched the ball except for one first-quarter drive that ended in a missed field goal. It did not turn the ball over, did not have an incomplete pass and had just one penalty. Defensively it held a West Fork team that came into the game averaging 23 points per contest to 154 yards of total offense. Eiklenborg began the route with a dazzling 64-yard punt return for a touchdown just two minutes into the game and added a 31-yard puntreturn score less than five minutes later that made the score 21-0. He was one missed tackle away from a third punt-return score late in the first quarter and finished with 142 punt-return yards in the quarter. According to Iowa High School Athletic Association records, Eiklenborg is second player in the state this year and third in the past two years to record a pair of puntreturn scores in the same quarter. Sandwiching Eiklenborg’s dazzling returns was a 1-yard Ben Cuvelier scoring run that capped a five-play, 50-yard scoring drive as D-NH led 21-0 after a quarter. Second quarter touchdown runs by Levi Lynch, Eiklenborg and Cuvelier along with a 2-yard scoring strike from Carson Parker to Byron Fritch made it 49-0 at halftime. Wolverine starters played just one series of the second half, needing just two plays to score as Lynch broke free for a 55-yard run. D-NH reserves scored its final 29 points, with Connor McCleeary, D.J. Ackerson and Blaine Becker scoring on runs and Connor Neuroth returning a kickoff for a score moments after West Fork found the scoreboard for its only points of the night. Lynch paced the D-NH rushing attack with 122 yards on just eight carries while Cuvelier had 68 yards and Becker 62. Parker completed all six of his pass attempts for 78 yards. Fritch paced the defense with

Grundy Center ends seniors’ regular season with 45-7 win over North Tama BY PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent GRUNDY CENTER – The Grundy Center football team created the perfect ending to their regular season, particularly for the 14 senior members of the team recognized before the start of Friday’s senior night game, when they rolled past North Tama 45-7 at Spartan Stadium. The Spartans were first to score on a 30-yard run by Jordan Clapp, but the Redhawks were soon to answer with a 3-yard run by Brandon Kaufman to even the score at 7-7. The Spartans take the lead again on a Bryce Moats 3-yard run to make it 14-7 before the end of the first period. Grundy Center would expand their lead to 31-7 during the second quarter, taking the ball to the end zone two more times, but settling for a Brock Rohler field goal on their third attempt just before the half. Rohler also had a hand in the two touchdowns, as the Spartans took their offensive attack to the air. Rohler connected with Bryce Flater on a 14-yard touchdown pass and 30-yard touchdown throw caught by Lane Bangasser. “We came out emotional and focused to start the game,” Spartan head coach Brent Thoren said. “It was great to see us bounce back from last week and really attack them from the start. The first half offensively we really spread the ball around on the ground and through the air. Brock (Rohler) made some outstanding throws and Lane (Bangasser), Austin (Burroughs), and Jordan (Stoner) were making some tough catches and then making people miss for extra yards.” The scoreboard remained unchanged in the third quarter as the defense on both sides dug in. The Spartans found a way to break the silence again in the fourth, though, when Moats scored for the second time, this time on a 12-yard pass from Rohler. Then with just over three minutes remaining in the game, Jeff Pikna made the defensive play of the night when he recovered a fumble and took the ball 40 yards for the final Spartan score.

“On the ground Jordan Clapp had a great night and both Bryce Flater and Bryce Moats were excellent in the pass game and return game,” Thoren said. “However, none of it happens without the offensive line doing their job up front.” Grundy Center accumulated 503 yards of total offense, while holding North Tama to 218. Clapp racked up 178 yards in 15 carries to lead all rushers on the night. Rohler ran for 42 yards, Moats went 41, and Flater 31. Rohler connected on 15-of-25 passes for 211 yards. Bangasser caught nine passes for 89 yards, and Stoner caught two for 68. Rohler was a perfect 6-for-6 in PATs. In addition to holding the line, the Spartan defense forced four turnovers. Jordan Graham picked an interception and recovered a fumble to account for two of them, in addition to Pikna’s fumble recovery and an interception by Moats. Flater, Dakota Gage, Clapp, and Graham led Grundy Center defense in tackles. “It was a great way to end the regular season,” Thoren said. “I can’t say enough about how the team has continued to grow and mature. Do we have things to work on? You bet, but to finish the regular season at 6-3 and have to deal with a lot of changes of personnel and schemes throughout the year, well, it says a lot about our kids.” The Spartans (6-3 overall, 5-1 District A-4) have a week off to prepare for the playoffs, something Coach Thoren sees as an advantage from many angles. “We now have our bye week which comes at a great time as we go into the playoffs,” he said. “We have the advantage of getting kids to heal as well as working on fundamentals. We can also scout our potential playoff opponents in their last regular season game. Finally, to be able to host a playoff game and not travel gives our community and fans another opportunity to watch our kids compete, and the players are excited for that opportunity as well.”  Grundy Center North Tama

Comets defeat AGWSR in regular season finale By ROB MAHARRY The Record ACKLEY — BCLUW volleyball coach Kristen Garber said that one of her team’s biggest goals this season was to finish with a winning record after a 9-20 campaign in 2012. When the Comets were sitting at 9-14, that goal looked like a long shot, but a six game winning streak capped off by a win over AGWSR in Ackley last Tuesday night brought BCLUW to a 15-14 regular season. The Comets won in four games by scores of 25-17, 25-21, 17-25 and 26-24. Save for a few early points, BCLUW led throughout the first two games before the Cougars jumped ahead 10-9 in the third game and dominating the rest of

it. AGWSR had gained all of the momentum and appeared poised to take the fourth game, leading 23-19, when the Comets mounted a furious comeback. “They definitely were more aggressive than us at the end. We were a little unorganized and timid,” AGWSR coach Shelby Abbas said. An errant Cougar serve along with kills from Haley Veldhouse and Olivia Callaway tied up the score, and the match ended after an AGWSR kill attempt sailed long and to the right. “Everybody took a deep breath and focused on what they needed to do,” Garber said. Callaway, a sophomore, ended her regular season with another

stellar performance, totaling 14 kills, seven total blocks and five digs in the match. Junior Nicole Montgomery also had a great night with nine kills, 10 digs, two blocks and three service aces. “Olivia played a really big game for us, but it was not one person,” Garber said. Bobbi Paper led BCLUW with 11 assists, and senior Nicolette Simpson added nine in her final regular season match as a Comet. Fellow senior Kendall Scurr led the team with 13 digs, and Veldhouse’s five blocks were second on the team to Callaway. The Comets landed 87 of their 91 serves successfully with seven aces. For the Cougars, seniors Taylor Steinfeldt and Madison Fryslie led the way with 14 kills apiece, and Danielle Henning added eight. Fellow senior Kim Ellingson recorded an impressive 26 assists, and Henning was right behind her with 23. Olivia Ingledue led AGWSR with 23 digs, and Fryslie also notched 17. The Cougars connected on 82 of 88 serves and landed seven aces, led by Fryslie’s three aces. With the win, the Comets improved to 15-14 overall and 4-3 in the NICL West, which was good for a share of third place in the conference. The Comets opened tournament play last night in Eldora with a rematch of a heartbreaking five-game loss against South Hardin. After falling to 9-14, BCLUW won its last six matches to finish the regular season above .500. “It’s a big deal. One of the goals we set early in the season was to have a winning record, and we had some moments in the middle of the season where it didn’t look like that was going to happen,” Garber said. The Cougars fell to 7-23 overall and 3-4 in NICL West play with the loss. They received a first round bye in district play and will wait another week before their first postseason game. “(The girls) have high expectations for themselves as we enter the 1A postseason play, and it’s going to be two weeks of practice, working hard and getting better,” Abbas said of her team.

Wolverine boys run to third, girls sixth at Union Invite

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent LA PORTE CITY – On a cloudy and cool 50 degree day many area cross country teams were looking to take another step forward toward preparation for upcoming the conference and state qualifying meets as they competed at the Union Invitational on the La Porte City Golf Course. The Dike-New Hartford boys’ team ran to the third place spot, while the Wolverine girls finished sixth. “I think we made some big strides at Union,” Dike-New Hartford coach Barry Cuvelier said. “We did a better job of competing and I hope that will pay off as we head into conference and districts next week.” “The girls as a whole had some really nice times,” he said. “Hannah Dove and Jurane Lizer I thought had a great race as well as Kadi Wright. Haley Luna did not run due to illness and the other girls really made a nice move to step up.” Wright led the Wolverine girls’ team with a ninth place finish. Jurane Lizer went 26 th, Hannah Dove 32 nd , and Olivia Verhulst 35 th. Carolyn Bulhuis went 52 nd and Jenna Hensley 74 th for the Wolverines. “The boys as well made a nice statement competing,” Cuvelier said. “Ethan Stancliffe I thought made a statement on going and getting out of his comfort zone which I think had everyone else believing in their ability. We still have some ground to pick up on other teams but I am hoping this will really get us to where we need to be.” John Crew led the Wolverine boys with his third place finish. Kyle Corwin went 23rd, Thomas Shirley 28th, Ethan Stancliffe 31st, and Dylan Mrzlak finished 42nd. “The Union-La Porte City Cross Country Invitational is the last regular season meet of the year, and usually is a preview of the upcoming NICL Meet,” Gladbrook-Reinbeck coach Andy McQuillen said. “The Rebels ran one of their better meets

of the year in the cooler, fall-like conditions.” Nicole Adair and Tyler Bovy both medaled at the meet, Adair finishing 20th for the Rebel girls, and Bovy earning a 16th place finish in the boys’ race. Meg Edler ran to the 56th spot and Hannah Martin took 59th for the Rebel girls. “The meet at Union was the first of what I call the cold season,” Grundy Center coach Chris Henely said. “Our kids have to get used to all different types of weather. We go from 100 degree sunny weather to 40 degree windy weather in the same season. We wanted to start putting ourselves in good positions for conference and looked to really fine tune the race.” The Grundy Center boys placed eighth as a team and the Spartan girls went 10th. The Spartan girls’ team had several runners out due to injury and illness. Harper Wells, Dalyn Maxson, Jen Rust, and Haylee Neessen were all unable to participate. Hannah Stumberg led Grundy Center with her 17th place finish, and Tiana Saak went 18th. Mellina Wrage finished 51st, Kate Ross went 86th, and Kaitlynn Ehrig was 94th. Espen Cleveland ran to 21st for the Spartan boys, followed by Finn Cleveland in 26th. Gideon Danbouchi went 45th, Dylan Hendricks 51st, and Jesper Holke-Farnam and Grant Weldon finished 84th and 85th for the Spartans. Jack Stumberg was unable to compete. “We were able to put together some good races and challenge our opponents,” Henely said. “As Union is so close to conference I wanted the kids to work on passing as many people as possible while still maintaining a good, manageable race pace. I believe we did a good job of preparing ourselves for Conference.” Union Invite Girls’ Varsity Results (4K) Team Results — 1) South Hardin 85; 2) East Marshall 102; 3) Denver 111; 4) Hudson 115; 5) North Tama 130; 6) Dike-New Hartford 138; 7) BCLUW 148; 8) Janesville 176; 9) Union 188; 10) Grundy Center 239; 11) Wapsie Valley 271; 12) Aplington-

Luna and Crew earn 1st Team All-Conference honors at NICL Cross Country Meet

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent REINBECK – It was a cold, blustery day at the Oak Leaf Country Club Saturday, yet runners and fans alike were thankful that Mother Nature kept the rain away as 15 teams and nearly 400 runners came together for the North Iowa Cedar League cross country meet. The Dike-New Hartford girls’ team finished as conference runner-up, second to East Marshall. The Wolverine boys finished fourth behind Denver, East Marshall, and Columbus. All-conference first team honors were awarded to the top seven individual finishers in the girls’ and boys’ varsity races, second team honors went to those finishing in the 8th to 14th place spots, and those finishing 15th through 21st were named to the honorable mention team. Area runners included on the first team were Dike-New Hartford’s Haylee Luna and John Crew, both of whom ran to a third place finish individually. Second team all-conference honors went to Kadi Wright of Dike-New Hartford who finished ninth and Hannah Stumberg of Grundy Center who went 14th. Grundy Center’s Tiana Saak, who ran to a 15th place finish, GladbrookReinbeck’s Nicole Adair who went 20th, and Tyler Bovy of GladbrookReinbeck who finished 19th all earned Honorable Mention honors. “I really thought our kids ran well,” Dike-New Hartford coach Barry Cuvelier said. “We did a nice job at the start. The girls I think as a whole ran their best race. Carolyn Bolhuis really ran well after coming off a foot injury. Haley Luna really stepped up her race as she as well came off the flu.” “The boys as well had a really nice race,” he said. “Thomas Shirley pulled a hamstring in the race which affected our (team) score but the other six really did a great job racing. Dylan Mrzlak really competed well for the varsity.” “This was a great way for our seniors to finish their careers,” Cuvelier said. “As many know cross country is a great sport to compete with oneself. The one thing we ask all runners and especially seniors, is to leave it on the course. I could not have been more proud of a group of runners. They led by example and will be missed in the coming year.” “Most runners improved their performance from a year ago, which is quite an accomplishment,” Gladbrook-Reinbeck coach Andy McQuillen said. “The improvement made this year by this group of young people has been quite impressive. We will look to once again have a strong performance at the state qualifying meet

in Eagle Grove on Thursday.” “The conference meet was as we expected - cold,” Grundy Center coach Chris Henely said. “With our last meet in Union being similar weather, I was confident in our performances. Hannah and Tiana pushed each other to 14th and 15th place finishes. As a senior Hannah once again made the all-conference team. This accomplishment is motivation for her for next week’s state qualifier meet. Freshman Tiana Saak gave me everything she had. After finishing her race, we literally had to hold her up so she wouldn’t collapse. This is a sign that she gave every ounce of effort she had to the race and I couldn’t be more proud. I am lucky to get to coach these kids. The girls’ team posted very respectable scores and times and ran the best they had all year.” “The boys saw a great performance from Dylan Hendricks who finished right behind senior Espen Cleveland,” Henely said. “The boys all have given it their best effort. I’m happy with the effort and work these guys did. Looking forward, we hope, for some state qualifiers next week.” Dike-New Hartford was scheduled to run in the Class 2A state qualifying meet at Gilbert, while the Gladbrook-Reinbeck and Grundy Center runners were scheduled to compete in the Class 1A state qualifying meet at Eagle Grove, all on Thursday, Oct. 24.

Spartans secure fifth straight NICL crown By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register TAMA — The Grundy Center High School volleyball team rallied from the brink of a set one loss and went on to sweep South Tama 26-24, 25-10, 25-17 to clinch its fourth straight North Iowa Cedar League West Division title last Tuesday. The Spartans (26-8 overall) finish undefeated in NICL West play for the fifth straight season, having not lost a set the past four years. South Tama (16-12 overall) finishes 6-1 in division play. Grundy Center coach Darwin Sents said this year’s title is special because of all his team had to go through to get it. Not only did the Spartans have to replace three allconference players from last year’s team but it also had to overcome injuries this year. “Night in night out we seemed to get everybody’s best shot and these guys show up to play with whoever we put on the floor,” he said. “I don’t know how many different lineups I’ve had this year, but these kids get it done. I think it’s harder than people realize to do this night in, night out – it’s kind of a grind and it would be easy to slip up somewhere along the line.” Early in last Tuesday’s match it appeared Grundy Center could be the team that slipped up. Carrying an 88-set division winning streak into the match, the Spartans stared the end of that streak squarely in the eye at the end of set one, trailing 24-22 when Sents called a timeout. “Don’t look at the end, play every point at the moment,” sophomore Katie Lindeman said of her coach’s instructions. “(I told them), ‘Score one point. Don’t worry about the game, don’t worry about the next three points, score this point,’” Sents said. Sophomore Alyssa Mathews scored that point on a solo block before junior Peyton Ralston tied the score 24-24 with a service ace. “They probably win that game

Dominating the NICL West

The Spartan volleyball team not only won its fifth straight NICL West title last week, but won its fourth straight without dropping a set. The Spartans’ last set loss to a North Iowa Cedar League West Division team came Sept. 22, 2009 when they downed West Marshall, 3-2. Year Match Set Record Record 2009 6-0 18-2 2010 6-0 18-0 2011 7-0 21-0 2012 7-0 21-0 2013 7-0 21-0 if the (South Tama) girl gets her hands down, but we served tough at them,” Sents said. “I give Peyton a lot of credit – she went back there, the game’s on the line, she didn’t lollipop (the serve). She lollipops they probably run something hard to the outside and we probably don’t win that. Peyton went back there and took them out of system – a lot of credit to her because that’s hard to do when the game’s on the line.” Lindeman followed with a kill that gave Grundy Center its first lead since the 20-19 mark, and a South Tama hitting error gave the Spartans the victory. The Grundy Center win seemed to take the wind from the sails of a South Tama team that could do little wrong in the waning stages of the first set. The Trojans had 14 of their 22 kills in set one and did not have a hitting error as they rallied from a 19-14 deficit to take the lead. “After we won the first one they looked really tired both mentally

The Spartans dominated the final two sets, racing to a 10-3 lead in set two on their way to a 25-10 victory and taking a 7-1 lead in the third set on their way to a 25-17 win. South Tama did not record a kill until the 14th point of the second set and went 21 points into the third set before their first kill. “South Tama really came out to play,” Sents said. “It was senior night, very emotional for them, lots of seniors, and they came out to play. They put, I think, everything they had into game one, but I have to love my kids for fighting through and taking care of the points when they had to.” Lindeman paced the Spartans with 11 kills in the match while Stephanie Faust recorded seven. Riley Sents had 26 digs and Piper Johanns 15. The Spartans are off this week with a first-round regional bye. They return to action at home next

Fourth quarter surge secures G-R win over Belle Plaine

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent BELLE PLAINE – GladbrookReinbeck may have started a bit slow Friday night, but a huge fourth quarter left no doubt of the outcome, as the Rebels held off Belle Plaine to remain undefeated in Class A District 4 with a 34-8 win. “We struggled a bit on offense and a lot of credit goes to the Belle Plaine defensive plan,” Gladbrook-Reinbeck head coach John Olson said. “We jumped out to 14-0, they battled back to 14-8, and we came up with a big defensive stop and a long offensive drive to go up 20-8. Then our defense played great and our offensive line opened the game up getting two more big scores.” The Rebels scored once each in the first two quarters, the first on a Camden Kickbush 1-yard run in the opening frame. In the second period Chase Clark went 18 yards for a Rebel score to make it 14-0 at the half. Belle Plaine threated in the third quarter, holding the Rebels scoreless while finding the end zone on a Nick Pippert 1-yard TD and two-point conversion to bring the score to 14-8. Kickbush connected with Phil Zimmerman on a 25-yard touchdown for the Rebels early in the fourth quarter, sparking a much needed Rebel scoring run. Eric Stoakes scored next on a 19-yard run, and it was Stoakes again late in the fourth sealing the deal with a big

43-yard run to round out the scoring and bring the game to its 34-8 conclusion. Gladbrook-Reinbeck accumulated 336 yards of total offense, more than double that of Belle Plaine’s 154 yard effort. Clark led the Rebels with 186 rushing yards in 26 carries. Stoakes ran for 68 yards in five carries. The Rebels (6-2 overall, 5-0 District A-4) will host GMG in a district matchup at Gladbrook this Friday, Oct. 25, in the final week of the regular season. A win would earn the Rebels sole ownership of the Class A District 4 title and a No. 1 seed in postseason play. Gladbrook-Reinbeck 7 7 0 20 — 34 Belle Plaine 0 0 8 0 — 8
