HDHS fall play Pistols and Posies set for this weekend

Brook Boehmler held a victory press conference the day after being elected mayor of Hampton, an election where he defeated former mayor Diane Weldin by a hefty margin of 322 votes and out-gained her in each of Hampton’s four wards and on absentee ballots. During his speech at City Hall, Boehmler outlined his goals for improving the city and also handed out checks of $4,000 each to three local entities he claims are critical to the success of Hampton’s future. “I want to thank you guys so much for the opportunity to serve this community,� Boehmler said. “I want to thank everyone for their support. I want to thank the other candidate. Without candidates, we don’t have choices, without choices, we don’t have a government.� “I believe in this community,� Boehmler added, before introducing current Hampton

Mayor Shawn Dietz, whom Boehmler is replacing. “Shawn, I want to tell you, you’ve brought a whole new fresh light and inspired a lot of people, a lot of younger people in our community.� Dietz stepped to the podium and also thanked Weldin for running for mayor again, and all her prior service to Hampton. “Congratulations to Brook on his victory last night. He’s working on a project here that I think is something that could potentially revolutionize campaign reform,� Dietz said. “I think it’s something that we can look at as a way to rebuild communities, to reform communities and to reinvest in our communities.� “I think it’s a project worth moving forward on it,� Dietz added. Boehmler then took the stage again to outline his campaign of “Give Where You Live,� which he implemented several months ago when he decided to run for mayor.

The idea of the campaign – which will continue through December - was to raise money IRUWKUHHQRQSURĂ€WRUJDQL]DWLRQVLQ+DPSWRQ the Hampton Public Library, the Windsor Theater and Franklin County Arts Council, and the Franklin Wellness Center. “I put together a campaign called ‘Give Where You Live,’â€? Boehmler said. “One of the things that was exciting about it was, so many people said, ‘well, how can I help, how can I support your campaign?’ One of the answers was, I could use your vote. But the other one was, let’s support our community.â€? Boehmler continued to heap praise on the three entities he was raising funds for during his campaign for mayor and told the crowd of more than 25 people that he feels if the quality Brook Boehmler speaks at a press conof life is improved in Hampton, it’ll draw busi- ference he held on Nov. 6 to discuss his election as mayor and hand out donanesses and people here.

FRANKLIN COUNTY TELLS VETERANS THANK YOU DURING TWO CEREMONIES By Jeff Forward Local veterans of all ages and gender were honored on Monday during ceremonies at both CAL Community School and Hampton-Dumont High School.

Zacharias continued. “When you see that veteran, look at him and say, ‘thank you.’ He’s the one that preserved the freedoms you so dearly enjoy today.â€? At Hampton-Dumont Community High School, there were musical tributes to the military, including the playing of the theme tune from each branch of the military while veterans of those branches of the armed forces stood at attention. Several students also gave historical lessons on the background of Veteran’s Day – such as the fact it was originally called Armistice Day in honor of the end of World War , 9HWHUDQ¡V 'D\ RIĂ€FLDOO\ EHFDPH

At CAL Community School, a similar ceremony with music, singing and even a skit explaining what a veteran is was held to honor local veterans – all of whom were called before the crowd and introduced. Guest speaker C. J. Nannenga, who was a machine gun operator

during Vietnam, spoke to the crowd about the history of Veteran’s Day but also the horrors of war. “These young people need to understand that government comes from the people,� Nannenga said. “And people need to be aware of what’s going on and be informed. See VETERANS: Page 9

ELECTION RESULTS From Page 1

ning. Boehmler held a press conference on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Hampton City Hall to announce details of his mayoral platform - including information about his “give where you live campaign.� “Our big thing is to try to see how much we can raise with the ‘give where you live campaign,’� Boehmler said. “We’ll have to look to make an investment in the future.� Boehmler added that he feels strongly in the philosophy that the key to a community’s success is involvement. The two candidates ran vastly different campaigns in the lead up to the Nov. 5 election day. Weldin seemingly relied on her reputation as the mayor of Hampton for eight years and said before the election she would engage in traditional campaigning with no Internet presence. Weldin held a few meet and greet events with the public, but did not seem to have the in-person presence that her opponent showed through the three months leading to the election. After announcing his candidacy to a rousing crowd of supporters during Summer Fest in August, Boehmler showed more visible signs of excitement and enthusiasm

for his possible role as mayor than his opponent, who did not declare her intentions to run until several weeks later.  7KH SRSXODU ORFDO Ă€JXUH ZKR KHOSHG LQYLJRUDWH WKH downtown with improvements and events set up a Web site and a Facebook page and engaged potential voters via online outreach. Boehmler also made brochures, bumper stickers, buttons and campaign signs that could be seen around Hampton. However, Boehmler’s biggest campaign coup may have been his “Give Where You Liveâ€? campaign, which netted hundreds of hours of volunteer time and $12,000 in cash donations that Boehmler handed out the day after he was elected to the Franklin Wellness Center, the Hampton Public Library, and the Windsor Theater and Franklin County Arts Council. The resounding victory was no surprise to many in Hampton and Boehmler was sure to thank everyone for their support. “I want to thank everyone for all their support,â€? he said. Boehmler will be on the council with only one new member – Jay Hickman who won the Ward 4 city council

There’s big drama in little Hansell following the Nov. 5 election for mayor and city council. The tiny community three miles east of Hampton has a big share of the election-night drama from Nov. 5, as a tie between two city council candidates has created a conundrum for the possible winner of the mayor’s race – which was between two write-ins.

He has to put that in writing, which position he prefers.â€? Giddings said things could become more complicated if Jason Harpers wins the draw for a council seat and opts to not take the mayor’s chair. In that event, Giddings admitted she was not sure what outcome would result. “This is kind of an odd situation, this doesn’t happen very often,â€? Giddings said.

Help for Iowa veterans in need Military service is a life-changing event for service members and their families. Our obligation to veterans continues long after they return home. The Veterans Trust Fund is there to help those in the greatest need. The Legislature created the Veterans Trust Fund in 2003 and invested about $6 million in state dollars. To increase the balance in the Fund and help more veterans in need, the Legislature voted in 2008 for the Iowa Lottery to create patriotic-themed VFUDWFKDQGSXOOWDEJDPHVZLWKSURĂ&#x20AC;WVJRLQJWRWKH Fund.

Doing so will keep your energy up for shopping trips, decrease the likelihood of snacking between meals, and ward off overeating while at the table. Staying hydrated also means drinking less alcohol.

AN EXCITING FALL FOR ONE AND ALL Looking Back at an Remarkable Season It seems like just yesterday we were walking through WKHGRRUVRI+'IRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW time for the 2013-2014 school year. But now, just two and a half short months later, the fall sports seasons have come to an end, All-State auditions for vocal and instrumental music have come and gone, and an academic quarter has come to a close. And while its left many of us wondering where the time has gone, the students at H-D have given us all a fall season to remember forever. The Hampton-Dumont volleyball teams made huge strides this year. The varsity squad saw the play of many players who had little varsity experience from years prior. Perhaps the volleyball team who saw the most success was the freshman team. Led by coach Dave Harms, the girls went 7-12 on the season. Harms attributes positive attitudes to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group of girls worked together very well. They were fun to work with.â&#x20AC;? The JV squad also had their share of highs. Sophomore Abby McKee says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we won 5 matches, 7 of those that we lost went in to the 3rd game.â&#x20AC;? JV coach, Mark Drier, was most pleased with the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to play through tough times and tough competition throughout the year. The varsity volleyball teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season came to a close sooner than they would have liked with a loss to Algona

LQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWURXQGRIGLVWULFW play. Coached by Cinda Barz however, they no doubt made great progress towards their goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very proud that the girls worked hard in practice all season long,â&#x20AC;? explains Barz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It showed me they had the discipline and the desire to excel and achieve.â&#x20AC;? The JV team was 5-22 on the year; the varsity squad 4-21. Senior Whitney Ringleb says, now that her volleyball career has come to a close, she will miss playing with her teammates the most. The team will miss all 3 seniors; Ringleb, Carolina Diosdado, and Lexi Sorenson. Boys football at H-D showed great improvement from last year, making for an exciting season for players, coaches, and fans. The white team, which consisted of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, were 5-3 on the season. The team was coached by Dustin Moorehead and Brandon Bird. Moorehead was more than pleased with his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We improved every game. They are also a great example of team effort and a never-quit attitude.â&#x20AC;? He continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very proud of their accomplishments this year.â&#x20AC;? In quite possibly the most successful season since the 2007 H-D football team made the playoffs, the varsity team proved to be the better team in most of their contests. In regular season play the dogs were 6-3, and this coming off of a season in which the

FRESHMAN VOLLEYBALL

team went 2-7. Sophomore Josh Knipfel says the two biggest highlights for him, were making the playoffs and ZLQQLQJWKHLUĂ&#x20AC;UVWKRPHFRPing game since 2007. After a hard-fought district playoff game, the bulldog football season came to an end with a one-point loss to DyersvilleBeckman on the road. Of the loss, senior Justin Wenzel says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the boys. Even though we lost, playing that well was a good way to go out.â&#x20AC;? The team will return many of its players from last year, which makes the future of H-D football look bright. The end of the season did, however, VHHWKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOPLQXWHVRIVL[VHniors in the bulldog uniforms: Tylor Jondal, Dalton Hanson, Levi Pratt, Eduardo Flores, Aaron Meyer, and Justin Wenzel. Of his seniors, head coach Jerry Shafrath says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The seniors were awesome. They provided leadership for us all year long. They played their hearts out for us.â&#x20AC;? Senior Paige Wragge was the lone swimmer for H-D this year. She made the journey to Mason City every day for practice and meets with Mason City High School. As a 4A school, Wraggeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team competed against other large schools, making long bus trips all around the state of Iowa. Paigeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main events were the 200 medley relay, the 50 freestyle, the 100 freestyle, and WKHEXWWHUĂ \+HUSHUVRQDO highlights from the season

were when her team won the Marshalltown meet as well as when she broke the one minute mark in the 100 freestyle. Picking her favorite memories WKRXJKSURYHGWREHDGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved my team. They made me feel like a true MoHawk. Although, I still love my bulldogs.â&#x20AC;? On the cross country courses, Steve Hulingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Chris Colemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys and girls cross country teams showed resiliency as they continued to strive to be competitive. They achieved personal milestones that these young teams will continue to build on next year. Sophomore Jordan Prantnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite moments came when the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team won the Lake Mills cross country meet, and when she SHUVRQDOO\Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHGLQWK place in Humboldt out of over UXQQHUVRQDYHU\GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW course. Of the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; highlights, junior Chase Skarpness says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me personally, it was a highlight when I beat my personal best by over a minute and a half.â&#x20AC;? The boys and girls district cross country meet took place in Ames, and while no H-D runners made it through to the state Fort Dodge, Huling walked away pleased with their efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought the runners really gave it their all. The boys course is one of the toughest courses that we run on and some of the guys ran close to season best times. The girls ran very well too with three out RIWKHĂ&#x20AC;YHKDYLQJVHDVRQEHVW times. I was proud of them all.â&#x20AC;? While the teams will lose seniors Illiana Bartsch, Elvira Cavazos, Allen Teggatz, Jarred Robinson, Jacob Jungck, and Grant Lehmann, many return

One highlight of the marching band season was band night. The middle school band, along with the high school band, performed. The middle school band was directed by Joan Philgreen and led by drum major Lexis Kalkwarf. Jesse Bunge, in his second year at the Hampton-Dumont, directed his choirs in the Fall Festival of Choirs, and also prepared students for All-State auditions. Mitch Lettow, a senior bass, made the elite group. Jenna Borcherding was chosen as an alternate. For instrumental music, it was Christian Vallery as the loan selectee for the All-State band, based on his audition on the saxophone. Deb Place and Becky Strotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheerleading crew were a presence at football games again this year. The team, 14 strong, mixed in new stunts with classic cheers. Over half of the squad was made up of seniors, so many new faces will be on the track for football games next year. Seniors Mercedez HersheyGuerrero, Hannah Petersen, Brenna Menning, Reann Orr, Taylor Gardner, Jessica Place, Allison Milbrandt, Kelly Nee and Machaela Henrichs cheered in their last football game against Dyersville-Beckman. Senior Hannah Petersen

says of her last game, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been amazing cheering for the bulldogs for the last four years. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have asked for a better ending.â&#x20AC;? Eight girls made their dance team debut for the 2013-2014 season during the halftime of the homecoming football game. With only a couple of weeks to prepare for the performance, Reann Orr, Kelly Nee, Tori Wreghitt, Allison Milbrandt, McKenna Wilkinson, Alex Baltes, Mercedez HersheyGuerrero, and Hailey Dunt, under the direction of Jennifer Schwenker, pulled together an energetic and exciting routine. Senior Tori Wreghitt says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was excited that the girls did so well with only a couple of weeks to prepare.â&#x20AC;? In the classroom, H-D welcomed new teachers Jenny Gaskill and Emiliegh Eilderts, teaching science and history. It was the students who grabbed the spotlight however, when Ă&#x20AC;UVWTXDUWHUHQGHGDQG kids were named to the honor roll. With 369 kids in the school, that means 51% were given this honor. High school principal Steve Madson says of the 51%, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it shows that our students are working hard.â&#x20AC;? This fall also saw the implementation of H-Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new student ambassador program, in which freshmen are mentored by upperclassmen. As we march into the winter, where wrestling, basketEDOODQGPRUHĂ&#x20AC;QHDUWVDZDLW us, the memories of fall accomplishments and milestones of the fall of 2013 should make us want to look back and be proud.

Harper attributes the Hampton Country Club Cup, styled after the professional Ryder Cup in which members pay $75 to play their own course in an all-day tournament with all of the money going toward improving the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The markers are something we put in a couple of \HDUVDJRDQGODVW\HDUZHĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGXSWKHER[HVIRUWKH gold tees, which is an additional tee box that we never had for the really elite golfers,â&#x20AC;? Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our crew does a fabulous job, Al Poulos (grounds superintendent), Harry Birdsell and John Sandvig, they work really hard to keep the course in tip-top shape.â&#x20AC;? With the addition of the gold tee boxes, the course has four sets, including red, blue, black and the gold tees for a big variety for golfers. A representative of the club will be on hand when it is recognized at the IGA spring awards event in April of 2014.

Nick Pedley: Philadelphia: The Eagles win easily over the struggling â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Skins. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe they lost to the Vikings. Denver: I think the luck runs out for KC at Mile High. Could be a different scenario when the Broncos roll into Arrowhead. Baylor: Huge win for the Bears. Huge. Michigan State: Nebraska has looked, even when they win. MSU defense keeps Huskers in check easily. The Hawkeyes might even be able to beat them. UNI: Panthers get back on track and win big. Frankie Aliu: Philadelphia: McCoy should have a huge game against a terrible Washington defense. I do think this game will be very close. Denver: Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense will have a tough time keeping pace with the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense. This game will show us if Kansas City is the real deal. They have had a very favorable schedule thus far. Baylor: They are the real deal and I believe will be undefeated at the end of the season, but will need some help if they would like to play in the National Championship Game. Michigan State: Michigan State is the real deal and are only four points away from being undefeated. They will give Ohio State everything they can handle in the Big Ten championship game. Missouri State: UNI has really struggled in conference play and I believe that will continue. Jeff Forward: Philadelphia: Philly is so up and down these days, but the same goes for Washington. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be close. Kansas City: This promises to maybe be one of the best games of the year. One would think Denver will run it up with Peyton and that offense. However, KCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense is pretty good. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go with the Chiefs winning over the Brocants. Baylor: Texas Tech was rolling along until the tough part of the schedule arrived. Baylor can score faster than Burt Reynolds in a 1975 disco club. Michigan State: If MSU wins this game, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lock for the Big 10 title game against OSU. Nebraska is living on the edge this year, as evidenced by the Northwestern escape. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go with the defense on this one. UNI: Northern Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season has gone down the tubes almost as fast as Northwesternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has. The Panthers need a win bad. I say they get it. Ryan Harvey: Washington: RGIII is the difference here. Philly has been up and down with the offense. Denver: Tough call, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take Peyton over Alex Smith. Baylor: Can anyone stop their pinball-style offense? Michigan State: After what Michigan State did to Michigan and the way Nebraska has been playing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the Spartans. UNI: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a coin flip on this one. UNI sure isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same in the MVC this year, but they always seem to have Terry Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number. Kristi Nixon: Philadelphia: Good question, both have had an up-and-down year. Kansas City: Can the Chiefs keep the unbeaten season going after the bye week against the Broncos? Another good question; a risk Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to take. Baylor: Bears continue with offensive onslaught. Michigan State: Nebraska wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get away with any Hail Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here. Missouri State: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to go with UNI here, but doubtful QB Sawyer Kollmorgen will be back in time for this game. The Panthers have been in a funk and Mo. State is capable of putting up big numbers.

TRACKING THEIR GOAL 'XPRQW3DUN 5HFERDUGVHHNVWRUHVXUIDFHROGWUDFN By Kristi Nixon DUMONT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Approaching the old Dumont track, the elements have been unkind to the surface that once was a solid asphalt. One solid strip remains, but for the most part, it is crumbling and, in some spots, non-existent. A mound of dirt sits on the side of the track. But the Dumont Park & Recreation Board wants to do something about that, spearheaded by efforts from Jessica Hambly and Shelly Zimmerman. ´,W¡VEHHQWDONHGDERXWIRUDFRXSOHRI\HDUV and I came on the board this year,â&#x20AC;? Hambly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of restructured the board and Shelly Zimmerman asked me to be on it. We decided we were going to go for it and what we could do to raise funds.â&#x20AC;? Starting off the fund-raiser will be a free-will dinner on Sunday, Nov. 17. The dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dumont Legion Hall, which will include beef burgers, two different soups, a drink and dessert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our kick-off,â&#x20AC;? Hambly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But ZLWKJUDQWVZH¡UHKRSLQJWRUHDFKRXUJRDODQG go from there. Our intentions are to have it done by summer of 2014, even if we have to accomPRGDWHE\WKHGROODUDPRXQWDWWKDWWLPHZH¡OO make adjustments.â&#x20AC;? Hambly said that the goal is to raise $19,000, which will pay for a two-inch asphalt pad, that ZLOOODVWORQJHU,IWKDWDPRXQWLVQ¡WUHDFKHGWKH adjustments will be made instead for a seal coat for the track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we raise beyond that, we can get benches or lighting, or possibly soccer nets,â&#x20AC;?

A new set of playground equipment is next to the track, which will enhance the project when completed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be nice if they can come up and utilize it all,â&#x20AC;? Hambly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, if we JHWLWGRQHUHPHPEHULW¡VXSWKHUHDQGXVHLW â&#x20AC;&#x153;The track will offer a free and safe recreational activity for the residents of Dumont as well as any visitors. Not only will runners and walkers be able to utilize the track, but parents with strollers and bike riders will be able to use the track safely away from streets and cars. There is also a nice playground area for children.â&#x20AC;? If you want to help with the project, donations can be directed to Dumont Park & Recreation, c/o the City of Dumont, P.O.

Reader of the Week at the Hampton Public Library is Elijah Acree, age 10 and in the 4th grade. Elijah is the son of Sarah Ballard and his favorite book is Getting Air by Dan Gutman. Library Fun Not So Fun Fact: Major publishers have been slow to make their e-book catalogues available to public libraries. In fact, none of the six largest publishers are selling or licensing e-books to public libraries in the same way they do print editions. Three publishers have adopted pricing policies that make e-books more expensive to libraries. On Amazon, an e-book would cost the average customer $9.99. That same book would cost the Library $84.00.

Eight girls, including Jordan Prantner, Jessica Speake, Bekah Christiansen, Payton Miller, Crystal Peterson, Katie Peterson, Illiana Bartsch and Lindy Lehmann, earned letters. Meanwhile, 11 boys, Grant Lehmann, Max Lehmann, Brandon Holness, Chase Skarpness, Trevor Riggins, Jacob Grefe, Jarred Robinson, Jacob Jungck, Edgar Romo, Will Alert and Spencer Clark took home letters.

Four girls took home top-10 medals at the Lake Mills meet, which head coach Steve Huling called one of the highlights for the Bulldog girls. “Another highlight was the performance of Jordan Prantner at the Humboldt meet,” Huling said, “finishing 12th out of around 125 runners.” The home meet at Mayne’s Grove topped the list of highlights for the H-D boys team. Eight of the Bulldogs recorded season bests and they placed well as a team against sturdy competition with four runners finishing under 20 minutes, which has been a goal for Huling’s squad. Good news for H-D is that 15 of the letter winners return seeking to improve their times.
