10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, October 30, 2003 The “Heaven Creation”, an acrobatic troupe from Beijing, China and their leader, a Chinese young lady from Australia, visited the North Iowa Community Schools Friday Afternoon, October 24 and gave a most interesting and talented presentation. The three young Chinese were most adept as they went through their routines in balancing, juggling and tumbling in the school gymnasium. Zachary Smith and Mandee
To the head of the classroom By Pam Angstman Editor’s note: This is the second of a three-part series of articles about former North Iowa students who returned to the school as teachers. Maybe it’s not so unusual, but it is certainly interesting that so many former students have returned to the halls of North Iowa Community School as teachers. I decided to see if I could discover what led them back to their alma mater. Along the way I asked them a few other questions.
Debra J. Berschman Aukes
Prior to her employment at North Iowa, she worked in a public health office, hospital and long term care facility. At North Iowa, she teaches Health Occupations to juniors and seniors. She is also an adjunct professor for NIACC and tech EMA courses and CPR classes. Deb’s four siblings graduated from Buffalo Center, as well as her three children. She decided to take the position of school nurse when her children were young, so that she could have the same work hours as their school hours. She notes that the educational system has changed over the years as society has changed. Advances in technology have not only impacted schools but all work sites. Technology has changed what and how we teach and how students learn. This has provided an interesting challenge for everyone. Social norms have changed and thus impacted schools as well. Family diversity has changed and had an impact on schools. School nursing and health education continue to be a collaborative practice. Her goal is the same for students and employees – to have healthy students ready to learn.
Deb graduated in 1972 and began teaching at North Iowa in 1988. Between those years, she graduated in 1976 from Minnesota State University Cum Laude with a BS in Nursing. She has twenty-four hours post graduate work from the University of Iowa, the University of Northern Iowa and Buena Vista. In 1996, she obtained her Career and Technical License from the State of Iowa to teach 5-12 General Health Occupations, 5-12 Health OccupationsNurse’s Aide and 5-12 Practical Nursing.

years. Amanda returned here in the fall of 2010 and teaches social studies. Her grandparents (Raymond and Mary Ruth Murray Smith) graduated from here, as did her father Raymond Smith Jr. as well as his siblings Frank, Patrick, Jim, Charlie and Daniel. Her siblings Zach, Pete, and Kelly, along with many cousins, graduated from NI, and her brother Connor is a junior. Amanda sees more technology, a younger staff and a revitalized downtown as differences since her own high school days. She wanted to be near her family and enjoys working in a school to which she has long been loyal. Her relatives walked these halls, and she can’t help feeling a sense of pride and responsibility.
Mary Jensvold Geisking
Amanda Smith Amanda graduated from North Iowa in 2002 and then the University of Northern Iowa. She taught here part-time in 2007-2008 and then in the Tripoli school system for two

She came back to NI in October 1999, beginning as a part-time elementary reading teacher. Before returning, Mary subbed for three years in Spencer and Spirit Lake and served the Okoboji district as their Home School Assistance

Coordinator. She also taught second grade for four years at Okoboji Elementary School in Milford and first grade for one year in Burt. Both of Mary’s parents (George Jensvold and Joy Orthel) graduated from Buffalo Center High School in 1957. Her own children are North Iowa graduates: Mitchel (2007) and Loren (2009), and Sydney is at North Iowa in 9th grade. Mary’s sister (Sue Bosma, BCHS 1978) and brothers (Tony, BCR 1980 and Todd Jensvold, BCR 1981) are all proud Bison alumni, too. Her nephew, niece, aunts, uncles and many cousins also graduated here in Buffalo Center. Mary lists the use of technology as the biggest change that she has seen over the years. “It was once a treat to watch a filmstrip in science, but now YouTube and the internet allow us to demonstrate almost anything in seconds.” She remembers that “thirty years ago, we waited for a snow day announcement by the radio. Now, an automated text message informs hundreds of people via cell phones and emails.” She also remembers the purplish-ink on worksheets that her teacher had to hand crank through the mimeograph machine. Today, she can order color copies from her desk and in seconds have eye-catching activities for her students. She mentions the training that Mr. Matthias gave on the typewriter and the simple computer programs that she did on a floppy disc in high school. Today, students have technology literally at their fingertips with electronic Promethean Boards or Smart boards in each class, as well as tablets, desktop computers, iPads, digital cameras and recorders. When it comes to just why she returned to Buffalo Center, Mary admits it wasn’t really on purpose. “I was very happy living in Okoboji and teaching in Milford, but, honestly, LOVE brought me back. My husband, Rande, swept me off my feet, and before I knew it, I found myself right back in my hometown. I’m proud to be an alumni and a teacher here at North Iowa.” Mary ends with what I imagine is really the motto for all these returning students: “Once a Bison, Always a Bison!”
Austin were united in marriage on Saturday, August 2, 2003 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Buffalo Center. Parents of the couple are Raymond Jr. and Jody Smith of Buffalo Center and Lon and Terri Grail of Afton. 20 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, October 28, 1993 Sean Kiewiet of Buffalo Center is a member of the Iowa State University Cyclone Cheerleading Squad for both football and basketball this year. North Iowa High School and the Buffalo Center-Rake-Lakota Elementary School are involved in National Red Ribbon Week themed “Neighbors Drug Free and Proud”. “The complete emphasis and purpose of the week,” said School Nurse Deb Aukes, RN, “is to create an awareness of drugs in their many forms and to seek commitments from the students to become and remain free of drugs.” 30 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, October 27, 1983 Buffalo Center Jaycees sponsored a Run, Punt, and Pass contest for area youngsters October 8 at Bison Field. The local contest was in charge of Jaycee Michael Kettwick. 70 boys and girls were involved in the local contest from Buffalo Center, Rake and Lakota. Perry Aalgaard, offensive tackle and defensive interior lineman for the football Bison, this year experienced a perfect season on the scoring side of Bison fortunes. He added up 22 points for the Bison in eight games with field goals and PATs, without a missed attempt. 40 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, November 1, 1973 A 40 acre plot of Minnesota farmland was auctioned off Saturday for over one thousand dollars per acre. The total purchase price was $42,280. Col. Roy Johnson and Col. Donald Babbit were teamed in the auction. Johnson noted that this was the first auction in which he was involved that land topped $1,000 per acre. Buffalo Center appreciates industry. Shafar Industries, Inc., multiline manufacturers of fiberglass products, continues to grow in Buffalo Center as they point their efforts to new markets. Fiscal year sales September 30, 1972 were $651,974, an increase of 13% over previous year. Payroll exceeds $204,182. 50 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, October 31, 1963 Curt Bashans, Arnold Carlson, and Bill Becker left Sunday, October 20, on a hunting trip to Montana. They hunted on Monday afternoon and were back in Buffalo Center later. Each man got a deer weighing about 150 pounds. Saturday, November 2, will be a red letter day for Mr. and Mrs. George Winter for the grand opening of the new furniture store on North Main Street. It will be the eleventh anniversary for the Winters in the furniture business.

Barb Ostrander, left, presents a copy of A Living History of Northwest Iowa, Saturday Night Baths and Sunday Dinners to Betty Delgado of the Buffalo Center Public Library. Ostrander is one of several local authors whose stories were published in the book. Her story was written from the perspective of her family’s kitchen table and recounts many of the special meals and projects which took place in the kitchen.
Local authors featured in new book at BC Library Memories of the “good old days” in Buffalo Center and Thompson have been preserved in a new book available at the Buffalo Center Public Library. Barb Ostrander of Buffalo Center was one of 317 authors whose stories are included in A Living History of Northwest Iowa, Saturday Night Baths and Sunday Dinners. She donated a copy of the book to the library last week, so others can enjoy reading the firsthand accounts of days past from the local area and this region of the state. Many of the articles in the book are also accompanied by photographs. Buffalo Center authors whose stories are published in the book include: Betty Coxson, “My Luther College Days”; Wanda Eckheart, “Growing up in Buffalo Center”; Ruth Edwards, “My Happiest Christmas”; Doug Hanson, “Falling Was a Part of My Regular Day But it Didn’t Define Who I Am”; Betty Heyer, “My Remembrance of Christmas 1935”, “Country School” and “Christmas Tree”; Eunice Olhtoff, “Chores and Hobos”; Rufus Olthoff,
as told to Eunice Olthoff, “Blind Horse Power”; Barb Ostrander, “A Kitchen Table”; Karen Penning, “There Were Too Many of Us” and “Memories from my Mother”; and Joan Sunde, “He Got Away With It”. Also included is a story from Joan Jacobson of Thompson, titled “Love Thy Neighbor”. The book was published by Hometown Memories Publishing, which asked people from all walks of life in Northwest Iowa to share their memories of the good old days. “Their stories aren’t history in the usual sense,” reads the foreword of the book. “Rather, they entertainingly describe a way of life that will never again be seen.” Some of the subjects remembered in the book include two-holer outhouses, castor oil as a cure for just about everything, rumble seats, party line phones and schools with just one room. Copies of the book are also available by calling 877-491-8802 or online at www.hometownmemoriesonline.com

Stay alert for deer on the move
\ Although it is always a good practice, drivers are reminded to stay alert for deer as they travel Iowa’s roadways over the next few weeks. Increased deer movements due to crop harvest and deer breeding behavior combine to hike the risk of vehicle-deer collisions during this period. Beginning now through the third week of November, Iowa bucks and does are more active, as the breeding season builds to its peak. This creates scenarios of fast moving, unpredictable deer crossing highways. With crop harvest in full swing, deer are also pushed into the remaining cover. Another factor that increases the risk of seeing deer will be the end of daylight savings time on November 3. This change places more people behind the wheel during the dusk and dawn period. Twenty-one percent of road-killed deer observed by the DOT along Iowa’s rural highways and interstates came in November in 2012. Second was October, with 14 percent. The easiest way to minimize your risk of hitting a deer is to simply slow down and remain alert, especially around dawn and dusk. Many accidents occur near brushy or treelined waterways that cross roads. If you see one deer, there may be a second or third following. Drivers are also reminded ‘Don’t veer for deer.’ Leaving your lane of traffic could cause a collision with another

vehicle or a roadside obstacle, such as a utility pole or culvert. While this combination of factors challenges drivers, Iowa’s deer herd has shrunk, and the number of deerrelated accidents has dropped significantly since 2003. This is attributed to a decade of increased deer harvest. Hunters, Iowa’s primary deer management tool, increased their take of does over the last decade.

SPORTS Bison cap season with a win The North Iowa Bison ended their football season on a high note last Friday, Oct. 25, as they defeated Laurens-Marathon 20-6 at Bison Field. The Bison held the Chargers scoreless for three quarters, as North Iowa put up the only points in the top half on a fiveyard touchdown run by Alex Paulson in the first quarter. The Bison came back after the break with a six-yard touchdown run by Austin Paden and a 46-yard punt return run for a touchdown by Derek Yegge in the third quarter. Yegge also ran in a two-point conversion to give the Bison a 20- lead. The Chargers got on the board in the final quarter, as Chase Oehlertz ran nine yards for a touchdown. “Defensively, I thought our kids played very well. We played hard all night,” said Bison Head Coach Don Anderson. “We didn’t get fooled by their formations and plays; we were basically fundamentally sound most of the night. I thought our kids tackled better this week and swarmed to the ball carrier, which was great to see. Our LBs led us in tackling, which is what we want, because that means that the upfront guys of Tristan Boehm, Lucas O’Connor, Steven Milbrandt and Josh Mathahs were doing their jobs. “Offensively, our line of Steven Milbrandt, Garrett Walsh and Zach Myer did an excellent job of controlling the line of scrimmage,” said Anderson. “Our TEs of Josh Mathahs and Tristan Boehm, along with our fullbacks of either Austin Paden or Alex Paulson, blocked very well also. The main thing that prevented us from scoring more points in the first half were the penalties we committed.” Alex Paulson ran for 266 yards on Friday night to set a new school record for rushing yards in a game. “He ran very hard and had excellent blocking by the kids up front and Paden leading the way from his fullback position,” said Anderson. “I thought Derek Yegge had a very good game and helped the team in many areas – he had a fumble recovery, an interception, a punt return for a touchdown, kicked off, tackled and covered well and did a fine job of running the team at QB.” This win gives the Bison an overall season record of 5-4, while they came up short of a spot on the playoffs with a fifth place District finish, 3-4. “I am proud of the kids’ effort the past two weeks; finishing with two consecutive wins to obtain a winning record for the year,” said Coach Anderson. “Finishing 5-4 isn’t bad, but it’s always disappointing not being in the state playoffs. That’s the standard we expect from our players, and hopefully those returning work to get stronger, faster and work to become better athletes to get back there.” Friday night marked the final football game for Bison seniors Derek Yegge, Tristan Boehm, Derrick Wubben, Lucas O’Connor, Zach Myer and Tate Corporon. “There are holes to be filled, and we need some young kids to step up to the challenge,” said Anderson. “On behalf of the coaching staff, I

Lady Bison race to State Smith makes third trip for boys The Lady Bison runners will fulfill their biggest goal of the season this Saturday, Nov. 2, when they compete in the State cross country meet in Fort Dodge. The girls took second place at the state qualifier meet in Eagle Grove last Thursday, Oct. 24, to secure their first State berth as a team since 2007. Joining them at State from the boys’ squad will be Connor Smith, who qualified for meet for his third year in a row with a third place medalist finish last Thursday. Medalists for the girls were Madi Blodgett in fourth and Brooke Hovland in eighth. Twenty-seven schools fielded runners at the qualifier meet, including 120 runners in the girls’ race and 152 runners in the boys’ race. The Lady Bison had displacement score of 99 points for their second place finish, while the boys placed 11th with 257 points. “Both teams, from top to bottom, came and competed at a high level versus excellent competition,” said Head Coach Jon Potter. “The girls ran an amazing average of 62 seconds and the boys 25 seconds faster from two weeks ago on the same course. “Madi and Brooke came out and ran excellent races for themselves – to finish in the top 10 in this meet is quite an accomplishment. Both placed themselves in the running early and never relented,” said Potter. “Christa Miller ran the race of her high school career – she was a minute and sixteen seconds faster today than two weeks ago on the same course. She simply came out and laid it on the line and succeeded. “Krista Hovland went out strong and battled hard the last 1200m to hold her spot, while Sam moved up 15 places in the last 1200m to secure our second place
Ladies come up short in Regional opener The Lady Bison are out of the Regional volleyball tournament following a hotly contested match with Bishop Garrigan last Tuesday, Oct. 22 in Algona. North Iowa opened the game with a win in the first set, 25-22, before Bishop Garrigan won sets two and three by the same score. The Lady Bison came back in the fourth set with another 25-22 win to extend the game to a fifth set, where the Golden Bears jumped ahead and won 15-4 to take the game, 3-2. Lady Bison Head Coach Carissa Judge says both teams were evenly matched, and the North Iowa girls were fired up to play an exciting game. “We came out playing some of our best volleyball to come up with a first game win,” said Judge. “It was so much fun to watch them play, and you could tell they were having a lot of fun, too. “The second and third games, we got down by six points early on and had to battle back. We fought hard and never gave up but fell short in those two games. Like all season long, though, our girls battled back in the fourth game – getting off to an early lead and keeping it all the way through to pull off the win and bring
the match to a fifth set. “Unfortunately, the fifth set wasn’t our best volleyball, and we fell short,” said Judge. “This is what Regionals is all about, though. You want to be playing your best volleyball at the end of the season and have games going to a deciding set to determine the winner. Our girls played some of their best volleyball for their last game. I couldn’t be more proud of them for their performance that night and throughout the season.” Rachel Boekelman and Paige Hassebroek led the Lady Bison in kills with nine each, followed by Mica Johnson and Rebecca Murray with eight each. Ivey Greensky served 25/25 with an ace, followed by Boekelman 17/17 and Hassebroek 15/15. Hassebroek had three blocks, and Shelby Berte had two. Johnson led in digs with 18, followed by Hassebroek with 16, Boekelman 15 and Ashley Huntington 12. Greensky had 28 assists. “It is always sad to have the season come to an end,” added Judge. “I’d like to thank the seniors Carly Main, Rachel Boekelman and Paige Hassebroek for their dedication and hard work they have
put in to this season and their high school volleyball career. It has been a fun journey. They have been fun to watch play and will be missed but never forgotten. We are excited for the talent coming back

finish – she had a simply amazing surge down the home stretch. Rian has finally recovered from an early season injury and ran over three minutes faster than her first race back at Eagle Grove, while Lexis also improved by roughly a minute. “On the boys’ side, Connor tried a new race strategy to go out more conservatively and work his way up in the middle of the race, and his patience and running discipline paid off,” said Potter. “He was able to move up consistently throughout the race and finish third in an extremely strong boys meet – earning a trip to the State meet in the process. Dan ran hard but unfortunately was unable to summon a large personal record in order to finish in the top 10 to advance. Chance, Taylor and Josh all ran season best times, which is a great way to end the season, while Kam had been battling the injury bug, and it cost him some time the back half of the race. “The cross country team would like to thank the fans that supported us at the state qualifying meet,” added Potter. “Your presence helped to spur us on to a fantastic showing.” The State cross country meet will be held this Saturday, Nov. 2 at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course in Fort Dodge. The Lady Bison will run in the 1A girls’ meet, scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m., and Smith will run in the 1A boys’ meet, slated to begin at 2:30.

Little ghosts and goblins will trick-or-treat to collect as much candy as they can this Halloween, but it’s not just kids who will enjoy the treats. More than 80 percent of Iowa parents admit they eat their children’s Halloween candy, according to the Delta Dental of Iowa Children’s Oral Health Survey. Some candies, however, have the potential to do more damage to teeth than others. “Choose candy that melts and disappears quickly,” said Dr. Ed Schooley, DDS, dental director for Delta Dental of Iowa. “The longer teeth are exposed to sugar, the longer bacteria can feed on it, which could produce cavity-causing acid.” Dr. Schooley says the best way to protect teeth from decay is to have candy in small portions at limited times, such as after a meal, as dessert or at regular snack times. “It’s best to avoid letting kids snack on candy throughout the day,” said Dr. Schooley, “and it’s extremely important kids brush their teeth or at least rinse with water after eating sweets. Remember that high sugar diets are detrimental to oral and overall health.” While no sweets are good for teeth, some are less harmful than others. Delta Dental of Iowa rates the best and worst treats for teeth on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being least harmful. 1) Sugar-free candy and gum with xylitol. Sugar-free foods don’t contain sugar that can feed on the bacteria in the mouth and produce decay-causing acids. Gum and candy with xylitol may actually protect teeth by reducing the acids produced by bacteria and increasing saliva to rinse away excess sugars and acids. 2) Powdery candy (such as sugar straws). While powdery candy is packed with pure sugar, it dissolves quickly and doesn’t stick to the teeth. 3) Chocolate (such as candy bars). Chocolate dissolves quickly in the mouth and can be eaten easily, which decreases the amount of time sugar stays in contact with teeth. Calcium could also help protect tooth enamel. However, chocolate with fillings, such as caramel and nuts, is a lot more harmful for teeth than the plain variety. 4) Hard candy (such as lollipops or mints). Hard candy is tough on teeth because it tends to be sucked on at a leisurely pace for an extended
period of time. Plus, chomping down on hard candy can chip or break teeth. 5) Chewy candy (such as caramels or gummies). Chewy, sticky treats are particularly damaging because they are high in sugar, spend a
prolonged amount of time stuck to teeth and are more difficult for saliva to break down. “Another way to protect teeth is to give kids something other than candy,” Dr. Schooley said. Nearly 25 percent of parents surveyed hand out
non-candy items to trick-or-treaters, such as toys, money or fruit. For additional tips on how to help keep children’s teeth healthy during Halloween and all year long, visit the Tooth Fairy’s Halloween website at www.toothfairytrickytreats.com

Words are not enough to say thank you for all the prayers, love, help, kind words, food and anything else that was done to help us while we sat by Don at St Mary’s and saying good-bye to our husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. Thanks also for all the kindness and help you showed to him and myself while he was with us. He would always talk about the help he got while we were out and about, he loved to visit with all of you. Special thanks to Beth Risius for coming to help us on the day we took him by ambulance, we are so lucky to live in a caring community. Thanks to Pastor Terry for all the phone calls while he was away from home and all the help he was in planning the service for Don. We would also like to thank the ambulance service for their quick response and professional care in getting Don to Blue Earth. While in Rochester, Pastor Bill Peake was kind enough to give us pastoral care since our pastor was out of town. Thanks for the prayers you had with Don and the ones we shared together. We appreciated the visits we received and the compassion we felt from many family members and friends. God bless each one of you.
