School supports new teacher as she braves battle with breast cancer North Iowa Community Schools held a “Pink Out� for their Homecoming dress up day last Tuesday, Sept. 17, in support of a teacher who is battling breast cancer. Mrs. Darrelleen Lewis, who joined North Iowa just this year as a new second grade teacher, was recently diagnosed with the disease, and Tuesday was her last day at school before going in for surgery on Wednesday. “In her short time at North Iowa, Mrs. Lewis has already built a strong

rapport with her students and our staff,� said North Iowa Supt. Cory Myer. “She has a strong personality, and I am confident she will fight and win this battle. We are truly blessed to have her at North Iowa, and it has been wonderful to see everyone rally around her in support. She has constantly been thinking about her students and how to best meet their needs while dealing with her own medical issues.� Myer says he received word from

Lewis’ family that her surgery went well, and she is now recovering at home. School staff members have been organizing meals to take to the family over the next few weeks. Lewis hopes to be back in the classroom after three weeks of recovery, and a retired North Iowa teacher, Mrs. Diane Jacobson, is filling in for her in the meantime. Lewis and her husband, Randy, live in Forest City with their two sons, JimBob and Gabriel.

Dino’s Place is now Road Runners Bar & Grill Lakota’s one-and-only restaurant has a new name and new owners. Donna and Greg Heidecker of Lakota have taken over Dino’s Place from Doug and Sally Price – renaming the restaurant Road Runners Bar & Grill. The establishment reopened last Wednesday, Sept. 18, after being closed for a couple of weeks for remodeling. Donna says this is their first time owning and managing a restaurant, but she has been working at the restaurant as a bartender since the

Prices took it over last year. “I enjoy it. I have a good time when I’m up here,� said Donna. Several other staff members are staying on, which should make for an easy transition, and the former owners have also been a big help. “Doug and Sally have been great about coming in and helping when I can’t figure out what’s what,� said Donna. Donna says her husband is happy to let her be the one in charge, but he’s behind her 100%. Lakota is Greg’s hometown, and they’ve made

some changes to the restaurant to make it more like it was back in the 70’s and 80’s when he was growing up. This includes opening up the front of the building with windows. “Wednesday, when we opened up, people were like, ‘I remember this and this,’� said Donna. “It’s fun listening to people reminisce about the way it used to be.� There have been some changes to the menu, and people are invited to stop in and see what’s new. Daily specials include taco bar night on

Tuesdays, chicken on Thursdays and Italian on Fridays. Happy Hour is 4-7 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Heideckers are still in the process of decorating the restaurant, and they are asking for memorabilia from servicemen from Lakota and Germania. Photos will be copied and posted on a wall to honor local servicemen, and original photos will be returned. Donna and Greg are planning a grand opening for sometime this fall, after field work is complete.

Greg and Donna Heidecker are the new owners of the renamed Road Runners Bar & Grill in Lakota.

Letters to the Editor Over the years I have had many people ask me what I would like to see done on the immigration issue. 1 - Enforce our immigration laws. They haven’t been enforced for the last 25 years or more. 2 - Secure our borders. 3 - Stop illegal immigration. Remember, illegal aliens come from every country on the planet. All illegal aliens should be deported. Tell them they have 60 days to leave on their own or we will round them up and send them back home at their expense. This would be the cheapest in the long run. The government says there’s 11 million, but they’ve been saying that for about 12 years. According to Barron’s Financial magazine, it is 20-25 million. It would free up about 8 million jobs. We don’t need these law breakers. If we took away all the freebies they get, most of them would self deport! 4 - From 1928-1965 we let in about 178,000 legal immigrants per year. Now it is up to over 1 million per year. We don’t need all these people, and our resources are finite. 5 - Let’s not import poverty. Let’s let in people who have the talents to make the U.S. a better country, not people who drag us down. Limit immigrants to 200,000 per year. I have worked on this issue since 1994 and have had the same goals since then! Paul Westrum Albert Lea, MN

Butterflies in the winter As the days get shorter, and the autumnal chill sets in, we see many changes taking place. Squirrels begin gathering nuts and storing them away, birds head south to warmer climes, and the leaves turn magnificent colors. Most of us are also aware that, like many birds, Monarch butterflies head south to Mexico to spend the winter. But, do you know where the rest of the butterflies go? Surprisingly enough, most of them stay right around here! Of course, butterflies, like all insects, are ectotherms, or coldblooded. That means that their body temperature changes with the environment; so, when it’s cold outside, their body temperature plunges. That’s not good if they live in an area that routinely falls below freezing because, if the liquid in cells freezes, the cells will break and die; then the animal dies, as well. So, cold-blooded animals cannot stay active during the winter months around here. They either have to migrate out of the area or find a place to hibernate. Monarch butterflies, of course, migrate long distances and spend their winters in Mexico. Other butterflies also migrate, but not nearly so far. Painted lady butterflies will migrate to the Gulf Coast, and other butterflies, such as red admirals, sulphurs, skippers, and question marks, will also migrate. Most only migrate far enough south to escape winter’s freezing temperatures, which doesn’t always mean traveling very far. But, most butterflies, like most other insects, hibernate in one form or another. Butterflies go through four phases in their life cycle—egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis), and adult. And, depending upon the species, most butterflies hibernate in

one of these stages. Very few butterflies overwinter as eggs, although some species lay their eggs in the fall in a sheltered location; then the adults die, leaving the eggs to hatch out in the spring. Many species, though, will overwinter as hibernating caterpillars. These include checkerspots and viceroys, as well as the well-known “wooly bear� caterpillars that are so common in the fall months. (Actually, “wooly bears� don’t turn into butterflies at all, but instead become Isabella tiger moths.) Most of these caterpillars burrow into the ground, bury themselves under leaf litter, or seal themselves up in leaves by spinning silk. However they do it, they are well-protected and usually stay safe throughout the winter. Yet other butterflies form a chrysalis in the fall and remain there until spring. Hairstreaks will do this, but swallowtails are probably best known for overwintering in the pupal stage. Swallowtail caterpillars are actually quite large. But, in the fall, they find a spot to pupate, attach themselves there, shrink up considerably, and then turn into a chrysalis. They remain in that state all winter long, emerging in the spring just as flowers are beginning to bloom on trees. Finally, some butterflies actually hibernate as adults. Commas and question marks do this, as do mourning cloaks and some red admirals. In fact, that’s why you will often see some of these butterflies flying around on the first warm day in March; they have been hibernating as adults all winter, just waiting for the weather to warm up. When spring arrives, they don’t have to complete their metamorphosis, they are already fully grown! Of course,

we don’t see them during the winter months because they hibernate in sheltered areas such as under tree bark, in rock crevices, or under decks. It’s hard to believe when you look out at a January blizzard but, somewhere out there, there are butterflies hunkered down and hibernating! No matter what life stage they hibernate in, all butterflies need to stay sheltered to fight off the harsh winter weather. But, many of them also have another way of surviving winter. They convert glycogen in their bodies to glycerol which prevents cells from freezing and rupturing when the temps drop below 32 degrees. In other words, many butterflies are able to keep from freezing in the winter by producing their own antifreeze! So, when you see butterflies flying around this fall, you’re watching them get ready for the winter months ahead. And, when winter arrives, and the snow, wind, and cold temps dominate the forecast, remember that not all butterflies migrate south. Somewhere out there are butterfly eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies all sleeping away the winter, ready to emerge in the spring to grace us with their beauty!

So the number one thing to do is to get your vaccine,� said Maria Mathis, Clinic Quality and Practice Leader. “But when scheduling your vaccination appointment, or before receiving your vaccine at another facility, ask how many strains it protects against.� The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that certain people should get vaccinated each year. Most of these people are recommended for vaccination because they are at high risk of having serious flu complications or they live with or care for people at high risk for serious complications.

City makes $2,500 contribution to NIB The Buffalo Center City Council approved a one-time contribution of $2,500 to North Iowa Betterment at its monthly meeting on September 11. NIB came to the Council last month, requesting $10,000 to help fund the position of NIBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. NIB board member Jerry Wiedemeier addressed the Council, sharing comments of support the group had received on Facebook. The comments were in response to the question of whether people supported the idea of tax dollars being used to help fund NIB. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, we need you guys to get behind us,â&#x20AC;? said Wiedemeier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need to go door to door to get people to support us, and if we can say the city is behind us, supporting us, it adds a lot of weight to what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small towns are dying, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got something really positive going here,â&#x20AC;? said NIB member Cory Myer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got young families that want to come back to town â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they want to be here. There are a lot of good things going on. We need to be progressive, and we need you as

a city council to be the leaders that are going to get us there. As a city council, you can be a bridge to take that next step, or you can be a barricade, and ultimately thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big question that it comes down to tonight.â&#x20AC;? Myer suggested a $5,000 contribution at this time for NIBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services and for the Council to look at bumping that up to $10,000 a year when it works on next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously community support for it,â&#x20AC;? said Councilman Marty Schaefer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also heard from â&#x20AC;Ś a decent number of people in the community that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that we should be funding it.â&#x20AC;? Schaefer said he thinks this issue

should be addressed at City budget time, but he acknowledged that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an urgent matter for NIB, as the organization is looking to hire a new person. Schaefer motioned to make a one-time donation of $2,500 to NIB and to send out surveys with the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water bills to find out what kind of support there is in the community for funding NIB with tax dollars. Following the survey, Schaefer said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to revisit the issue at budget time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anybody at the table that doubts that this is a good thing for the community,â&#x20AC;? said Schaefer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to deal with how we get it done. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to say


â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do you support using tax dollars to fund this?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another thing for us to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do you support us being involved if we have to raise property taxes to do it?â&#x20AC;? Paulson seconded, and the motion passed with yes votes from Jensvold and West, while Silber voted no.

Swenson Park gets redesign with pergola By Carol Mahnke Thanks to a $1,000 grant received by the Rake VFW Auxiliary and funds from the Rake Lutefisk Supper and the Tractor Ride, Swenson Park has been re-designed to make it more attractive to people who might have their lunch in the park or just sit and enjoy the greenery. Georgia Jacobson, who initiated the project, hopes the more attractive park will be used by more Rake residents and visitors than it has so far. The land for the park was donated by Marlys Swenson and her family in honor of the late Gordon Swenson, longtime Rake banker.

The redesign was accomplished by David Osmund of Landscaping by Design, Buffalo Center. All participants are pleased with the outcome, which features a pergola sheltering two park benches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks nice,â&#x20AC;? commented Phil Benn. Benn annually organizes the Rake Tractor Ride which, with the lutefisk supper provided the balance of the $60,000 project. Vernon Jacobson, who is married to Georgia Jacobson, organizes the lutefisk supper. The two projects have provided new street lights in Rake, the welcome sign, the basketball court and now the park.

Iowa Department of Natural Resource weekly Âżshing report The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly Âżshing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly Âżshing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For current information, contact the district Âżsheries ofÂżce at the phone number listed at the end of each district report. NORTHWEST Crawford Creek Impoundment Fishing has been slow. Moorehead Park Pond Fishing has been slow. Brushy Creek Lake Water clarity is decent. Anglers are focusing on panÂżsh around the submerged trees. Try Âżshing in 10 to 20 feet of water. There are lots of bluegills around 9 inches. Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake) Fishing remains the same as last week. Channel CatÂżsh - Good: Drift Âżshing with night crawlers have been working. White Bass - Fair: White bass can be caught pulling plugs, crankbaits, or casting white twisters. Walleye - Slow: Pulling plugs or shad raps continue to be the best producers. The dredge machine on Storm Lake is in operation. Stay clear of the dredge, booster pump, and pipeline that runs from the dredge to the east shore. North Twin Lake Fishing for yellow bass and crappie is starting to pick up. Anglers are focusing their efforts around docks. Swan Lake Fishing has been slow. Water clarity has been reduced due to algae blooms. Black Hawk Lake The lake is about six inches below crest. Water clarity has been reduced in some areas due to algae blooms. Black Hawk Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Âżshery was renovated last fall. Although we have been restocking the lake with sport Âżsh, there are not a lot of harvestable size Âżsh in the lake yet. Browns Lake Anglers are catching catÂżsh using Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stink bait and dead shad. Fishing for other species has been slow. Snyder Bend Lake Fishing has been slow. Little Sioux River (Linn Grove to Correctionville) Good sized catÂżsh are taking chicken livers and chicken guts. Use a slip sinker and hook and look for the current breaks along high banks preferably or the standard snags. Anglers should really focus on the current breaks. For more information on lakes and rivers in the Black Hawk District contact the Black Hawk District OfÂżce at 712-657-2638. Lake Smith Channel CatÂżsh - Good: Try cutbait, worms, or stinkbait. Fish are probably biting best the last hour of sunlight to an hour after sunset. Bluegill - Slow: Largemouth Bass - Good: A few largemouths are being caught in the evening and early morning. Lake Catherine Channel CatÂżsh - Good: Cats are biting on minnows or chicken liver. Try early morning or right at dark. They are decent size with some running 7-9 pounds. Largemouth Bass - Good: Largemouth are biting on spinners. Clear Lake Channel CatÂżsh - Good: CatÂżsh are still hitting quite well. Fish can be caught just about anywhere on the lake. Try the edges of the reeds and

Âżsh in the morning or evening with worms, cutbait or stinkbait. Bluegill - Fair: Target the jetties by Ventura. Dangle a worm right on the edge of the rocks off the tips of the jetty in the evening hours. Crappie - Fair: Reports of anglers catching crappies by Dodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point. Walleye - Slow: Anglers are catching a few walleyes trolling or drifting along the north shore, from the state dock area to the east. Muskellunge - Good: Muskies are still hitting. People are hooking them mostly by docks. Yellow Bass - Good: Anglers are still catching good numbers of yellows out from the state dock area in the middle of the main lake. On strong south wind days, shore anglers can pick up good numbers by the boat harborage and reed edges.

Crystal Lake Bluegill - Good: Anglers are picking bluegills up in 7-8 feet of water but some deep, too. Largemouth Bass Good: Anglers have reported catching lots of largemouth. Fish on the outside edges with a bobber and live bait or try a weedless spoon. Walleye - Slow: Walleyes are around 1620 inches. Fish deep during the day, then a little shallower during the evening.

Iowa River (Iowa Falls to Marshalltown) Channel CatÂżsh - Good: Fish the logjams and deeper holes and move often. Fish with cutbait or stinkbait. Flathead CatÂżsh - Good: A few reports of anglers catching Ă&#x20AC;atheads on dough balls. If you can get a boat or kayak on the river and Âżnd some of the deeper holes to spend the night with some live bait, you should have good success. Winnebago River Anglers are catching pike, smallmouth bass, and catÂżsh on artiÂżcial lures on the Winnebago from Mason City to Rockford. Northern Pike Good: Anglers are catching their limits on artiÂżcial lures. Channel CatÂżsh - Good: CatÂżsh should be biting well. Try whatever you have available: worms, cutbait, stinkbait, live bait. Some of the best action can be had by throwing a slip sinker rig right in front of a snag/logjam and waiting for a bite. Smallmouth Bass - Good: Smallmouth are also hitting well on a variety of artiÂżcial baits. East Fork Des Moines (Algona to Humboldt) Water is low and anglers are using kayaks. Northern Pike - Good: Pike are also being caught on crankbaits. Channel CatÂżsh - Good: CatÂżsh are good size (3-8 pounds) and can be caught on a variety of bait (worms, cutbait, live bait, stinkbait). Some anglers have had good luck using a purpledescent crankbait. Smallmouth Bass - Good: Smallmouth (most are 10-14 inches though some may push the 20-inch mark) hitting gold and black crankbaits. For lake updates and Âżshing information in the north central area contact the Clear Lake Fish and Wildlife ofÂżce at 641-357-3517. Big Spirit Lake Smallmouth Bass - Slow: Look around rock piles and weed lines with a combination being even better. Largemouth Bass - Slow: Fish have been found in a few different areas but there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be a clear cut pattern. Pitching docks, cranking weed lines, and top water early and late have all caught a few Âżsh. Walleye - Slow: Fishing con-

Bison celebrate Homecoming with a shut out The North Iowa Bison won a resounding Homecoming victory last Friday night, Sept. 20, as they shut out the CAL Cadets, 53-0. Alex Paulson and Austin Haisman each ran in a touchdown for the Bison in the first quarter, followed by two more by Austin Paden in the second. Combined with three PAT kicks by Derek Yegge, the Bison held a 27-0 advantage heading into halftime. Yegge ran for two touchdowns in the third, complemented by a touchdown run by Trevor Aukes. Noah Paulson scored the final touchdown for the Bison in the fourth, with Spencer Armstrong running in the two-point conversion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basic football for us,â&#x20AC;? said Bison Head Coach Don Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage; therefore, we were able to run the ball very effectively. We had six different guys score TDs, which is great. I thought all of our backs ran well, and some donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of experience.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team rushing total was 351 yards, which is pretty good,â&#x20AC;? added Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That type of total usually means you will win the game. Our overall passing games needs to improve â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blocking, catching, route running and decision-making. We are going to have to throw the ball effectively down the stretch to beat some of the teams we play. Defensively, we played better but still need to play with a lower pad level and attack blocks better. I was really happy with our young kids in the way they played in either half. One of our goals was to shut out CAL, which meant everyone had to contribute.â&#x20AC;?

The North Iowa cross country teams each took three medalist spots at the Emmetsburg Invitational held Monday, Sept. 16. The North Iowa boys fielded an incomplete team but took the top two spots in the race. Connor Smith was the meet champion with a time of 16:57, followed by Daniel Miller in second place with a time of 17:22. Taylor Ostermann also medaled in 15th place. The Lady Bison squad also produced three medalists, as Madison Blodgett took third, Brooke Hovland was fourth, and Krista Hovland placed 13th. The girls took second place overall, with a team score of 53 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both [Madi and Brooke] were nearly ninety seconds faster this year than last, which is a testament to their summer training,â&#x20AC;? said Head Coach Jonathan Potter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Krista ran a solid race to earn medalist honors. We need to cut the gap between our #3 and #5 runners to about 30 seconds in order for us to be more com-

petitive as a team. The kids have been working hard, so hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to make the adjustments necessary as the year progresses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side, both Connor and Dan ran phenomenal races,â&#x20AC;? said Potter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Connor took the lead early and dictated the pace and never relinquished the lead, earning his first high school meet championship. Dan ran a great back half of the race and closed the gap with the second place runner and out-gutted him the last 400m. To go 1-2 in a meet with the times we posted is quite an accomplishment. Taylor ran a lifetime best and earned his first medalist honors in the process; while Josh ran a personal record by roughly a minute. Overall, despite not fielding a team for the boys due to injury, they came out and competed well.â&#x20AC;? While this was a small meet, with only six schools, Potter says there was quality competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The key training points for our squads now are to stay healthy and continue to

Ladies clinch first win versus Newman The North Iowa Lady Bison picked up their first win of the volleyball season last Tuesday, Sept. 17, as they defeated Newman Catholic 3-0 in Buffalo Center. Set scores were 25-22, 25-18 and 25-15. Rachel Boekelman led the Lady Bison in kills with 10, followed by Rebecca Murray 7, Shelby Berte 5, Paige Hassebroek 4, Carly Main 3 and Mica Johnson 2. Scoring aces were Johnson with 4, Berte and Boekelman with 3 each, Main with 2 and Murray with 1. Boekelman and Hassebroek each had two blocks, and Main and Ashley Huntington each had 6 digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we came out this night a little too confident or unfocused due to all the Homecoming festivities, and maybe a combination of the two,â&#x20AC;? said Head Coach Carissa Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first set, we jumped ahead 5-0, but then ended up getting down by four or five points mid-way through the game. I was proud of our girls that they did not give up and kept fighting back until we pulled off the win. After the first set, the girls stepped up their game in the next two and played well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This game was supposed to be on the road, but due to Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gym floor not being completed yet, we were able to host them this year,â&#x20AC;? explained Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to play this game at home, especially during Homecoming week and get a win on top of it all.â&#x20AC;? The Lady Bison traveled to Forest City on Saturday, Sept. 21, where they tallied two wins and three losses in tournament action. Opponents and scores included: Webster City: 13-21, 10-21 North Union: 19-21, 15-21 Saint Ansgar: 19-21, 16-21 Clarion Goldfield: 21-12, 14-21, 15-8 Clear Lake: 19-21, 22-20, 17-15

Kill leaders on the day for North Iowa included Boekelman with 15, Hassebroek 13, Berte 10, Johnson 9, Murray 8, Main 6 and Melz 1.

Scoring aces were Murray with 7, Main 4, Berte 2 and Hassebroek and Johnson with 1 each. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Forest City Tournament is always a long day, but a great tournament because you get a lot of games in against some different teams we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually see throughout the season,â&#x20AC;? said Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off the day with Webster City, who is ranked 10th in 4A. They were a tough team to start off the day. I thought we played well, but their tall front row made it difficult for us to hit around the block.â&#x20AC;? Next, North Iowa lost some close matches to North Union and Saint Ansgar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the first set of both of these games, we jumped out to an early lead,â&#x20AC;? said Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, we got stuck in a rut on a server or two and had a hard time returning the ball; allowing them to catch back up and eventually get the win. We struggled at times with communication between each other and keeping the control of the game in our hands, with keeping the serve and being the aggressive team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ended the day on a great note, beating Clarion-Goldfield and Clear Lake in three sets each,â&#x20AC;? said Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This made for an exciting end to our day. The girls played very well. We served great. We were the aggressive team, dug the ball up, and blocked better than we had all day. It was a lot of fun to watch them play. The last game of the day was one of the most exciting. We got down 9-2 right away, then 11-6, until Shelby Berte went on a 7-serve run; putting us ahead, 13-11. Paige Hassebroek was hot during that run, getting about 4-5 kills in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so proud of how our girls never gave up and kept believing that we could win that game,â&#x20AC;? added Judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They fought to the end, and it was a great way to end our day. Overall, it was a good day, and the girls kept improving as the day went on.â&#x20AC;?

Hunting with Heroes returns

The third annual Hunting with Heroes event is coming to Lakota during Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day weekend, thanks to the efforts of many donors and volunteers. A new donor this year is StateLine Cooperative, who is donating the meat for an estimated 500 guests at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; banquet, which will be held Sunday, Nov. 10. From left are: John Stelter of StateLine Coop., Hunting with Heroes organizer Bernie Becker, and George Vaske of StateLine Coop. Organizers will once again welcome several marines from the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Lejeune, NC for a weekend of pheasant hunting and fellowship. The event is capped off by a Veterans Appreciation Banquet. All area veterans, spouses and surviving veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spouses are invited to the all-expenses-paid banquet on Sunday, Nov. 10 beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Lakota Eagle Center. Anyone wishing to attend should RSVP to Cathy Kelly at 515-538-0572 or Denny Murra at 319-269-4124 by November 1.





Candidates file for city office City elections will be held Tuesday, Nov. 5 in Buffalo Center, Lakota, Rake and Thompson, and numerous candidates have filed to run for the positions up for election. In Buffalo Center, Mayor Troy Armstrong is seeking reelection to his position. Also seeking reelection are City Councilmen Chuck Silber and Pete Paulson, who will be challenged by Les Wubben for one of the two seats up for election. In Lakota, incumbent Debra Steven was the only candidate to file election papers for city council, with a total of three seats up for election this year. Rake Mayor Louise Hagedorn is seeking another term as the only

candidate for mayor. Three city council seats are up for election, and incumbents Melissa Duve and Phil Benn are in the running, along with Ronald Johnson. In Thompson, Robert Johnson will be on the ballot for another term as mayor. Incumbent councilmen Todd Hughes and Fred Fiebelkorn are also seeking reelection unopposed.


First trial begins in sexual abuse case The first of three trials begins next week for a Thompson man accused of sexual abuse. Clarence Miller, 80, faces charges of six counts of second-degree sexual abuse. Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney requested a change of venue for the trial last month, which was granted along with the severing of the trial into three parts, due to separate victims. The first trial will begin Monday, Sept. 30 in Butler County. Other trials are scheduled for Oct. 14 in Bremer County and Oct. 28 back in Butler County. Miller turned himself in to authorities last August when charges were filed following an investigation by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, Department of Human Services and Winnebago County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office.
