Harvest season inching Attorney position to go full along throughout region time in Franklin County By Nick Pedley Local elevators throughout the area are reporting decent yield numbers on both corn and soybeans despite early skepticism about this year’s harvest. Farmers were hampered by rainy weather last week, which somewhat delayed progress on the region’s soybeans. However, local officials estimated that 50 percent of beans were harvested, while others pegged the number at 80 percent. All reported the corn crop was only 10-15 percent finished through this past weekend. “We think it’s going to be a drug out harvest, but we’ll just keep plugging along,� said Chuck Schafer, manager at North Iowa Cooperative in Thornton. “Our farmers are saying it’s slightly better than they expected.�

Schafer explained that an extremely wet spring forced numerous farmers to plant their fields much later into the season than normal. Many soybeans were planted in June, but some didn’t get planted at all. He said the poor start led to uncertainty when farmers hit the fields earlier this month. “Some yields have been all over the place, which we were expecting. But the majority of beans have landed in that 45-50 bushel [per acre] range,� he said. Employees at Five Star Cooperative in Rockwell and AgVantage FS in Coulter said soybean yields were on par with Schafer’s estimate. Corn has just started to come in, but early numbers have indicated average yields between 170-180 bushels-per-acre. “It’s going well, but the weather’s been not

so good,� said Margaret Nuehring, manager location manager at Five Star’s Rockwell elevator. “Considering the late planting season, I think people are happy with what they’ve been getting.� The duration of this year’s harvest season remains to be seen, but it pales in comparison to 2012. Extreme drought forced combines to hit the fields much earlier than normal throughout much of the state. Schafer said nearly all of the fields around Thornton were finished by Oct. 15 last year, so 2013 already promises to outlast that harvest by weeks. “We expect to be getting beans in for a while and corn is really going to start picking up here,� said Schafer. “Hope fully, the clouds stay away and we finish HARVEST to page 8

By Nick Pedley The Franklin County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved changing the county attorney’s status to a full-time position at their meeting Monday, but the effective date is still somewhat up in the air after current Attorney Daniel Wiechmann, Jr., said he would not accept the new fulltime job.

Board Chairman Corey Eberling drafted a resolution and presented it to his fellow supervisors which detailed the switch to full time. The group had previously discussed the move for the past few years, according to Supervisor Michael Nolte, and Eberling felt the change was necessary to better fit the needs of the attorATTORNEY to page 10

A lesson not learned

The 16-day government shutdown came an anti-climatic end last Wednesday when House Republicans conceded their inevitable defeat and gave up on attempts to defund Obamacare. The lackluster finish averted financial default and raised the debt ceiling so the government could keep paying its bills. The budget solution, which passed first by a large margin in the Senate and later in the House, funded the government through Jan. 15 and raised the debt limit through Feb. 7. Though we can breath easy now, Americans

shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too cozy. It would appear weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re headed towards yet another showdown just a few weeks after we ring in the New Year. Finger pointing and sidestepping blame has become the standard procedure in Washington D.C. following disasters like the

shutdown. No one wants belly up and take credit for failing to do the job they were elected to do. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to look past the GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persistent interparty squabbling as the source for all of this wheel spinning in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capitol. Numerous news outlets highlighted the turmoil among House Republicans during the budget battle, and it seems there were two fights going on at the same time. Republicans wrestled with the Democrats over the budget, while far-rightwing conservatives duked it out against moderates within their own party about just how deep they wanted to cut. As made obvious by Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events, all of it was moot. It seems pointless to gripe about continued stalemate in Washington. There appears to be very little leadership within the Republican Party, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been made obvious by the lack of cohesive direction during the budget battles these last couple of years. Negotiating effective policy is impossible when neither side wants to pull up a chair to the table, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more difficult when one side canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even decide on what it wants to pursue. President Barack Obama pointed out after the shutdown ended that Congress has fallen in to a habit of governing by crisis. That observation is certainly true, as numerous deadlines on financial measures, bills and other issues have flown past with no solution in sight. We saw it with the sequester and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it with many other things like the

farm bill and immigration reform. Finding a middle ground has proven to be as difficult as landing a man on Mars. The unwavering political strife in Congress has made the next few months all the more troubling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious â&#x20AC;&#x153;governingâ&#x20AC;? by shutdown was a failure for House Republicans, as they gained next to nothing from the 16-day lockout. However, many GOP legislators were quoted as saying they planned to continue where they left off when the winter budget and debt ceiling battles heat up again. This tactic would once again take the United States backwards by stalling constructive progress on extremely pertinent budget issues that promise to continue into the foreseeable future. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ludicrous to think Democrats and Republicans will ever see eye-to-eye on every issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not how things work. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be nice if the GOP would convalesce around more centralized goals instead of bickering amongst themselves about which direction theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take. The shutdown created economic turmoil and threatened to affect international markets if the debt ceiling wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raised. Republican legislators should take note the political desires of a few arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth creating widespread trouble for many. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending habits need to be cut back and our budget trimmed, but the GOP should take a logical approach when heading into future showdowns. After all, it took us a while to get into this financial hole and it will take us while to get out. Presenting less confrontational and aggressive proposals to the Democrat-held Senate will create a better potential for success than the slashand-gash attempts of recent memory. The shutdown failed, and learning from this extremely reckless style of governing is key if Republicans want to achieve their goals down the road.

And the beat goes on. Actually itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the work that goes on . . . thank goodness! Someone came in the office the other day and asked why the office was full of cartons. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because we ran out of room in the back of the shop. Am I getting behind in my printing . . . thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a no! I also am wondering why they keep sending me supplies. This keeps up and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have envelopes piled on my desk! Not really . . . you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it . . . but I do tend to exaggerate a little! Bottom line: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m busy . . . and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it should be. Home . . . busy there, too! Finally got the curtains hung. Had help from my best friend! I had curtains and curtain rods placed all over the living and dining room floor. In the process of putting up the rods, I misplaced a bracket. That took a half hour to find! And guess what: it was right where I put it! Everything is now back in place with the exception of getting the old rods out of the living room. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite long . . . I hope I get them out without breaking anything! Had a good friend come and take the back seat and interior out of the convertible so as to replace the motor and cylinders. Everything out and discovered fluid on the floor under the back seat . . . which probably means that the hoses (the only things I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

purchase!) were no good. A call to Florida and they are on the way. Now to get the car to Mason City and get everything working again! That car means even more to me now. I bought the car from a good friend, Dennis Abrams, in 1964. Dennis passed away last Thursday, Oct. 17. I have owned the convert for almost 50 years. I have a lot of fond memories in that car. Sunday went to Altoona for a visit. I had missed two weeks in a row . . . a record I think. One I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to break. A short visit, lunch, and then we went to Blank Park Zoo so Little Lid could go trick or treating. She wanted to be a witch . . . so Papa got her a costume. Actually Angela ordered it . . . as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not very good at those things! (Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another one!) We all had a bag for the treats . . . and they all ended up with the little one! Back home and I headed north once again. Back in time to attend two visitations, one for friend Stacia Etnier, and then to Mason City to attend Dennisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. A full day! It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been had I been 30 years younger! Be good, Kids+! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showtime!

The troops had an odd number, not that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not odd anyway, but thirteen vengeance seeking soldiers of fortune showed up with smoke rolling out of their ears. Oh yes folks they were eager to conquer any and all if necessary. We were teamed up in threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s except one foursome until we were ready to tee off and one Nellie the Garth Nelson type showed up which then made two foursomes. Lo and behold along comes one FrankO basketball brain Schnoes later than late thus we had three foursomes and one threesome, oh for confusing. If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for our connectivity to Sonja Goetz we never could have figured it out. So the General, back in form after R&R boomed out instructions; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Men weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to play regular today, regular like what the heck is that, with closest to pin on hole six and nine.â&#x20AC;? He must have had a premonition as he won the closest to the pin on hole nine and Dennis the Menace Foss won it on hole six. They split $500 well maybe it was only $4 but then thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close! Tommy The General Severe that is led Bobby Boy Siems, Barney Boy Dougherty and Franky Boy Schnoes to victory with a 73. That quad found the right formula and it was drive-chip & putt that allowed them to win. They are so much smarter than the rest of us as we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure that formula out. That win found them receiving a free ticket to watch the Oak Ridge Girls at the Aredale Opera House. Second place and with no money or no nuttin, was my team of Davey Boy Levitt, Denny Boy Foss and Gary Boy Nellie the Nelson with a 74. Our putters were under the hay stack fast asleep and refused to wake up. However folks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old cliqueâ&#x20AC;Śif, if, if. Third place and into the big bucks was the team of Cliffy Boy Cameron, Bobby Bobert Bobby Boy Shreck-

engost, Billy Bob Boy Nolte and Jimmy Boy Saylor with a 77. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad considering Shreck only got of the cart once, Billy Bob twice and Jimmy Boy three times, and Cliffy boy was cold as a frozen turkey. Oh I did witness Shrecky drop a super nice putt, well maybe not so super but it did go in and it was only four inches from the cup. The four of them split a hog donated by Duane Dorenkampâ&#x20AC;Ś.whoopsâ&#x20AC;Ś he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have hogs anymoreâ&#x20AC;Ś sorry boys! The fourth place team consisted of Dilly-Dally Boy Slagle, DeanO Boy Peter and Roger Boy Madsen with an 80. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lotta shots folks, DeanO had to wrap his wounded wrist, Slag had to sit down due to back spasms and RogO had leg cramps all were due to swinging so many times. Do the math here, three of them swinging each time......ahhhhh 240 like wow who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have aches and pains? The Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team had a rather solipsism problem but hey they won so there. As the curtain falls upon yet another adventure on the links with the boys, I shall bid thee a big bazinga hoping that we are blessed with yet a few more days of golf. Little tip from my culinary backgroundâ&#x20AC;Ś store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil, they will stay fresh longer. Finally use a wet cotton ball to pick up bits of glass you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see easily. A highway patrolman to a speederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes we have a quota; you just got my wife a new microwave!â&#x20AC;? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fret I shanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send you a bill for these tips. So then may the snollgosters in your life be tiny and may you not be caught in a speeding trepan. Bazinga and into the next chapter!

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;? fluctuates 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 first 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 benefit 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 first 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 traffic 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 specific store in the mall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can go any place now with this dog and be confident 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 benefits 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 benefits 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-confidence 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 first 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;?

The best of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s around:

Clarksville coach impressed by Warhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Peterson By Kristi Nixon SHEFFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Clarksville head coach Heather Peterson has seen second-ranked (Class 1A) Janesville and No. 7 (1A) Tripoli this season. But the most impressive hitter she has seen thus far? West Forkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lindsey Peterson (no relation). â&#x20AC;&#x153;West Fork isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any better than any team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen,â&#x20AC;? coach Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But their No. 5 (Lindsey Peterson) is the best hitter weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen out of Tripoli and Janesville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all the teams weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by far the best hitter and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we were ready for that.â&#x20AC;? And the Warhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; senior outside hitter put down 15 of her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21 kills in a 25-10, 25-7 win over the Indians and West Fork went on to defeat Belmond-Klemme in a home triangular, 25-21, 25-10, in which she had 21 of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 33 kills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely what makes up the team,â&#x20AC;? coach Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did have a block up on her, so that was good. I told them, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you put a block up on her, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll shut down.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, though.â&#x20AC;? Belmond-Klemme completed the triangular with a 25-22, 25-17 win over Clarksville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we came out strong after the weekend,â&#x20AC;? West Fork coach Abbie Gappa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came back and looked promising after playing highly-ranked teams at Hampton at times. But, there were a lot of times where, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knowâ&#x20AC;ŚI definitely thought we could show improvement and I thought we could have done a lot better against Belmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to start looking at other guns instead of just relying on just one or two so that it helps to see what else we can do. I think tonight we looked at other options beside Lindsey, which is what we need to.â&#x20AC;? Peyton Perkins and Ahna Larson combined to distribute 26 assists to eight different hitters for the Warhawks in the win over B-K. Clarksville, too, played better against the Broncos, particularly in the first set, but still came up short in ending its regular season. The Indians combined for seven

ace serves against B-K, three by Hannah Green and two in a row by Isabella Vance in the second set that pulled them to within 13-8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played better against Belmond-Klemme,â&#x20AC;? coach Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have little mistakes of not finishing the good plays â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a great dig or a great serve and then we come back with a hitting error or a blocking error or another missed serve. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work on in the off-season for sure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to end the regular season that way and now we have Tripoli (in the 1A regional opener) and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-to-work time. We have practice in front of us and plenty of time to recoup after today and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back at it.â&#x20AC;? West Fork opened at NashuaPlainfield, also on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready for regionals,â&#x20AC;? Gappa said. West Fork 2, Belmond-Klemme 0 (25-21, 25-10)

Dominating the Corn Bowl: West Fork teams sweep conference cross country titles MANLY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Both West Fork cross country teams placed the majority of its teams in the top-10 to earn the Corn Bowl Conference crowns on Thursday, Oct. 17 at Pioneer Town & Country Club in Manly. The third-ranked Warhawk boys team was completely dominant with all five of their scoring runners placing in the top seven, led by Peyton Twedtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual title in a time of 16 minutes, 56 seconds for 32 team points â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12 ahead of runner-up North Butler, ranked ninth in 1A. Twedt was followed by Jacob Hansen, who was third at 17:21 and Drew Engebretsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth-place finish in 18:09. Rounding out team scoring were Colton Rowe (sixth) and Austin Steil (seventh). Finishing runner-up for North Butler was Caleb Wedeking (17:16). The Bearcats had three in the top 10, including Jerod Ballhagen (fifth) and Gavin Scroggin (10th). Meanwhile, Maya Roweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runnerup finish in 17:22 to North Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Isabel Derdzinski at 17:16 paced the Warhawk girls with 32 team points to out-distance second-place Nash-

ua-Plainfield (62). North Butler was third in the team race (67). Also scoring in the top-10 for coach Mark Twedtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls squad were Madison Schreckengost, fourth; Taylor Nuehring, fifth and Sydney Schreckengost, eighth. The Bearcat girls scored another top 10 finish from Lisa Feldman, 10th overall. It was a good tune-up for the joint state-qualifying meet at Eagle Grove on Thursday, Oct. 24 where all of the 1A Corn Bowl teams plus several others will compete for a chance to run at Fort Dodge on Saturday, Nov. 2. West Fork and North Butler are the highest-ranked boys teams who will compete for a spot at the state meet with Eagle Grove right behind the Bearcats at 10th.

Track resurfacing hits a road bump at West Fork By Nick Pedley Plans to resurface West Fork’s high school track were delayed recently when it was discovered more work was needed than originally expected. Superintendent Darrin Strike informed the Board of Education that tiling is needed around the inside of the track to correct ongoing drainage issues before any resurfacing work starts. The board decided to move forward with plans to replace the track’s old rock surface with asphalt at their September meeting because it was outdated and prone to flooding. However, the new tiling development put those plans on hold until at least spring. “This project was moving along nicely, but then it hit some rough water,” said Strike. “I really don’t think we’ll be able to get the tile installed this fall because everybody is booked this time of the year.” Once completed, the new asphalt surface will provide West Fork athletes an adequate practice facility for track and field. The high school no longer hosts a meet each spring, but the junior high does. The board shied away from an all-weather surface due to the high price tag and lack of necessity. An all-weather surface would run upwards of $300,000, Strike said in September, but the asphalt is only estimated to cost the district between $50,000$55,000.

The board tabled any action on the track and felt the project would most likely resume in the spring. “I think it’s going to be a bigger project than we though,” said board member Jim Tuttle. The board shifted discussion to potential cooling systems at the district’s two buildings. Scorching temperatures at the start of the school year forced five-straight early outs in August, and some West Fork patrons questioned the lack of climate control in Sheffield and Rockwell. Both Strike and the board felt pursuing the installation of air conditioning units wasn’t financially viable at the present time. Additionally, the five dismissals were extremely rare compared to past years. “The millions of dollars that saving five days a year is going cost doesn’t cut it, in my opinion,” said board member Rob Heimbuch. However, future developments may force West Fork’s hand down the road. Strike said the probability that Iowa’s schools switch to a yearround class schedule is building momentum. If such a change were to occur, air conditioning would become a necessity during the summer months. The board agreed, and many felt year-round classes were almost inevitable.

“Don’t think it’s not going to happen, because they’re doing it in charter schools, and if those kids score higher on tests, it’s going to start changing,” Tuttle said. “I remember when they started giving kids iPads and I thought we were years away from that at West Fork. But, look – we have iPads.” After further discussion, the board agreed to have MidAmerican Energy review cost-effective options for cooling the district’s buildings. The survey will come at no cost and will provide the board with data for future decisions. “I believe it’s coming quicker than we think,” said Tuttle, about year-round school. Other business Strike reported that the district’s three-year-old pre-K through 12th grade enrollment was 731 for the 2013-14 school year. Last year’s number was 750. The Rockwell building houses 346 students this year, and the Sheffield facility has 385 students. Strike also noted that the district has seen an increase in open enrollment into the district and a decrease of students open enrolling out. The board approved the hiring of Abbee Gappa as an assistant on the girls’ varsity basketball team and Lindsy Mayland as a para-educator at the Sheffield campus. The board’s next meeting will be Nov. 18, at 5 p.m., in Sheffield.

School Conferences for elementary through high school will be 4-8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28 and Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 3-7 p.m. Preschool and elementary students in both the Rockwell and Sheffield buildings will have scheduled conference times with their teachers. Middle school teachers will be in their rooms. If your middle school student does not have a scheduled conference time, you are welcome to come and visit with teachers as they become available. They will take a meal break on Monday from 5:00-5:30 and on Tuesday from 4:30-5:00 and will not be available during those times. High school teachers will be available in their rooms for conferences. Shared teachers will split their time between the Rockwell and Sheffield campuses. Mrs. Payton, Mrs. Gappa and Mr. Kudej will be in Sheffield 4-5:40 on Monday and 3-7 p.m. on Tuesday and in Rockwell 6-8 p.m. on Monday. Mrs. Otten will be in Sheffield 4-5:40 on Monday and Rockwell 6-8 p.m. on Monday and 3-7 p.m. on Tuesday. Mr. Curtis and Mrs. Scholl will be in Sheffield 6-8 p.m. on Monday and in Rockwell 4-5:40 on Monday and 3-7 p.m. on Tuesday. Mrs. McLennan will be available 4-6 p.m. on Monday and 3-7 p.m. on Tuesday. Mrs. Trewin and Mr. Spurgin will be available on Monday and Mr. Elling on Tuesday. The ICAN (Iowa College Access Network) will provide two presentations on Monday, Oct. 28. At 5:30 p.m. in the media center, juniors and parents are invited to the College Planning Night. This is the ideal opportunity to find

answers to your questions about the college planning process. At 6:30 p.m. seniors and parents are invited to the Financial Aid presentation in the media center. This is a very informative meeting regarding financial aid for college - there will be info on completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), types of financial assistance available as well as overview, tips and deadlines for the financial aid process. School will be dismissed at 2 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28 and Tuesday, Oct. 29. There will be no school on Friday, Nov. 1. School conferences are an important source of communication between the teachers, students and parents/guardians. They provide an opportunity for parents/guardians to meet teachers and administrators, to ask questions and to hear about how each child interacts in the classroom. It is an opportunity to gain valuable feedback about the development of individual students. Most importantly, it sends a powerful message about how much parents and educators care about the education of each student. Even if it is only for five or 10 minutes, the time parents take to spend with teachers can have an enormous impact on their children’s attitude toward learning and success in the classroom, such as increased school attendance and higher academic performance. We encourage you to make every effort to attend the conferences. West Fork School Calendar Notices Wednesday, Oct. 23 - Professional Development, 2 p.m. Dismissal

Schulz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to have an impact on the lives of students. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Schulz worked for many years in secondary education, holding various positions including principal of a seventh through 12th grade school in Plainfield; working as middle school principal in the Carroll Community School District for nine years; and also was superintendent of the Carroll district from 2000-2004. Schulz began his college career as a part-time provost at DMACC before moving to the full-time provost position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I finished up my Ph.D. at Iowa State with the idea that one day, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to be a college president,â&#x20AC;? Schulz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been actively seeking a president position. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been looking for this opportunity. The NIACC job seemed to be a good fit.â&#x20AC;?

Great Iowa Treasure Hunt Gears Up for Fall Publication

Author John Cunningham donated a copy of his book, â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rocky Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: A History of Cerro Gordo County, Iowa,â&#x20AC;? to Sheffield librarian Jill Peterson last week. Cunningham wrote the book which details the history of Cerro Gordo County and its townships and cities since their founding. The last book chronicling the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past was written in 1910, and Cunningham felt it was time a new edition covering the past 100 years was published. (Photo by Nick Pedley)

Unclaimed property refers to money and other assets held by financial institutions or companies that have lost contact with the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner for a specific period of time. State law requires these institutions and companies to annually report and deliver unclaimed property to the state treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, where it is held until the owner or heir of the property is found. Common forms of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed checks, life insurance policies, utility security deposits, safe deposit box contents and many other types of property.

Dike-NH snuffs out West Forkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff hopes By John Jensen The Grundy Register DIKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; West Fork saw its slim playoff hopes go down in a barrage of Dike-New Hartford points Friday, suffering the most lopsided loss in program history, 85-6 at Dike-New Hartford Friday. The Warhawks (2-6 overall, 1-4 in Class 1A, District 3) wrap up their season Friday at home against Hudson. Dike-New Hartford, which is ranked No. 3 by the Associated Press, clinches the district title and heads into the final week of the regular season undefeated. The Warhawks struggled in every aspect of the game, finishing with just 154 yards of total offense while surrendering 342 yards. They also allowed 142 punt-return yards, all in the first quarter. Dike-New Hartford averaged 10.5 yards per offensive play and also scored on three punt returns. Compounding matters for West Fork was the loss of quarterback Spencer Halloran to an apparent leg injury in the second quarter. Junior Collin Arndt saw his first extensive playing time in Halloranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence, throwing for 66 yards and rushing for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only touchdown.

Dike-New Hartford senior Gabe Eiklenborg returned a pair of firstquarter punts for touchdowns, sandwiching Ben Cuvelierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oneyard scoring run at the end of a five-play, 50-yard drive. The Wolverines added four second-quarter touchdowns to lead 49-0 at halftime, and their starters needed just two plays to score on the first series of the second half in their final action of the game. Four different Wolverine reserves scored in the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final 19 minutes, all under running-clock rules, to account for the final margin.

McCASLIN from page 1 proved that a simple problem could not be solved by the council, who had the power to make the decision and decided not to make any decision at all. 4. N/A 5. N/A 6. I am running because I want people to feel free to come and have issues resolved if it is within the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power. 7. I would like to see new families in town and develop a place they want to call their home. This has been a great community to live in for me and I want to see that continue on into the future for everyone in town. MEINTS from page 1 printed in Outstanding Young Women of America in 1970. 5. I have no formal campaign platform. I just want to make sure the city runs fiscally responsible while taking care of needed projects and the needs of daily operation. 6. I feel I have the necessary qualifications and background to do a good job. I am a conservative and try to use good common sense to find responsible solutions for any problem that may arise. 7.

The 1963 class of SheffieldChapin High School met Saturday, Aug. 24 to celebrate their 50th class reunion. There were 23 class members and along with spouses or a friend, the total came to 39 in attendance. A social get-together was held at the home of Ron Zickafoose starting at 2 p.m. Some members brought memorabilia to display and share. At about 5 p.m., we left to go to the West Fork Wharf to eat dinner in Shefiield. We hugged, cried, and laughed as we shared school day experiences as well as events in our lives through the years. A pamphlet was also prepared that included short summaries from those who were willing to share and to bring us up to date on what was going on with their lives, and they were distributed to those present. Before our meal, Pastor Keith Weber welcomed and thanked ev-

eryone for coming and said grace. Before we left to the evening Pastor Keith also asked us to honor the class members who were deceased with a moment of silence. They are: John Laroque, Paul Sullivan, Marlys (Morehouse) Hutzel, and Carol (Johansen) Johnson. Pastor Weber also thanked the many who contributed in any way to make this reunion happen. After the meal, several went back out to Ron Zickefooseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Before leaving it was decied to meet again in three years at the end of October. Ron Zickefoose graciously let us make a reservation for our classmates to meet again in October 2016 at his home. Attending the runion were the following class members: Robert Berndt or Newton; Gerald Buss, Darrell Paullus, both of Hampton; Eileen (Ahrens) Kaplan of Shellsburg; Gerald Craig of Dumont; Karen (Dorenkamp Downing of

lived here, I have really come to enjoy Sheffield. I want to help maintain all the things that make living here so great. 7. I know if given the chance to serve on the council, I would be able to add to those things and keep our town running smoothly.

agreed the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crops could have been much worse considering the adverse circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year is different, you never know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get,â&#x20AC;? said Schafer.

The resoultion proposed the salary of the full-time attorney start at $85,000. Eberling said he settled on that number after reviewing figures from counties comparable to Franklin County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at the survey with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being paid across the state, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good number,â&#x20AC;? said Nolte. Eberling noted that his proposed resolution was only a draft, and both he and Nolte felt it should be looked at by Wiechmann to make sure everything was legally sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to air on the side of caution on this,â&#x20AC;? Nolte said. The group agreed to wait for Wiechmann to review the resolution before acting on it. Wiechmann, who was scheduled to appear at the meeting regarding other business, gave the proposal the OK after a brief review following his arrival. The resolution establishing a fulltime county attorney at starting salary of $85,000 was passed by a 3-0 vote, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take effect immediately. Wiechmann has 60 days to formally accept or decline the job, but he said after the meeting he plans to turn down the full-time role. If Wiechmann does decline the position, the attorney officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change to full-time status wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take effect until Jan. 1, 2015, when the winner of the November 2014 general election takes office. The position will remain part time until then. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recognize not everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be pleased with the decision, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a step in the right direction and I support it,â&#x20AC;? said Plagge.

HARVEST from page 1 October strong.â&#x20AC;? Rockwell area farmer Larry Johnson said he was completely finished with soybeans, and was just getting started on corn. His beans drew yields slightly below the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s average and came in at the mid-30 to mid-40 bushel-per-acre range. Despite the spotty soybean numbers, he expected a good corn crop that far exceeds last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought-riddled harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of it got drowned from the rain this spring, but I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get between 170 and 190 [bushels-peracre],â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little wetter than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much we can do about that with the cool and damp weather weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been having.â&#x20AC;? Johnson expected to be finished with corn in a week and a half, but that estimate was ahead of many predictions throughout the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going pretty good. Probably around 80 percent of beans are in here,â&#x20AC;? Coulter AgVantage Branch Manager Doug Anders said last Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the weather stays OK, I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pretty much finished with those by the middle of next week.â&#x20AC;? This summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s damp growing conditions means that most of the corn will have to be commercially dried, but all three managers

ATTORNEY from page 1 neyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Currently, Wiechmann fulfills only part-time duties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even talked with one attorney â&#x20AC;&#x201C; out-of-county â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that deals with multiple counties on personnel issues, and he feels that this would be a great thing,â&#x20AC;? said Eberling. Supervisor Jerry Plagge felt switching the attorney to full time would better suit the desires of Franklin County residents. He said past conversations with locals revealed that some prefer a more structured office that pursues stricter convictions for criminals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully moving to a full-time county attorney is going to give us some better law enforcement,â&#x20AC;? Plagge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the naughty people back on the street right away. They want them convicted and dealt with, and if going to a full-time county attorney position will pull towards that end, I support that.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, Eberling and Plagge pointed out that switching to a fulltime attorney would negate any potential conflict of interests. Currently, Wiechmann handles both private and public casework in his part-time role with the county. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you try to mix private business with public business, the potential is there for problems. The potential is there to be slighted,â&#x20AC;? said Plagge.
