Union asked to make concession By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Secondary roads workers under a collective bargain agreement will be asked to make a concession regarding health insurance fees that are created as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Sue Hammen of Calhoun County Public Health gave details to the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors on Nov. 5 regarding the supplemental health insurance fee to employees that will begin with the premiums paid for the month of January, actually deducted starting with the first paycheck in December. Twice each month, pretax payroll deductions are taken as employee contributions toward health insurance. Currently, this amounts to a total monthly cost of $60 for a single plan and $165 for a family plan (divided into two payments each month). The employer contribution is more than $600 per month for single coverage and over $1,400 per month for family coverage. An additional cost of $14.25 per person per month ($14.25 for single coverage, $28.50 for two people, $42.75 for a family of three, etc.) will be charged. (This charge is not related to the highly publicized insurance exchanges for people without group health plans). The situation for county workers was not anticipated when setting salaries and benefits for the fiscal year, which ends on July 1, 2014. The compensation board meets annually under state law to present a wage increase proposal for elected officials to begin at the start of the next fiscal year. By law, the supervisors can approve anything from 0 to 100 percent of the proposal as presented, not going over the proposal and not approving a different percentage of the proposal for one elected official than for another. The supervisors have traditionally based wages for other county employees on what is approved for the elected officials. The total wage and benefit package is affected by the health insurance rates that change at the start of the fiscal year. The rates for the next fiscal year are expected to be known in the third week of January. This could include a potentially large increase in health insurance rates, as well as the new special fees.

The secondary roads workers and EMTs have collective bargaining agreements. Ron Haden, county engineer, noted that the contract for secondary roads calls for the employee to contribute $60 per month for single coverage and $165 for family coverage, with no mention of added fees. The language of the contract for ambulance workers calls for them to pay whatever other county employees pay. Haden speculated that the CWA, the national organization representing the county road crew, would likely recommend that the county be held to its contract but he can still request that the members of the local agree to an adjustment for the remainder of the fiscal year. Negotiations will start soon on a two-year contract to go into effect on July 1. Regarding the possibility of the county picking up the added cost of the special fees for all employees, Judy Howrey, auditor, said, “We don’t have the money to pay for the extra cost.” Haden said that the extra fees for secondary roads worker health insurance would have to come out of the secondary roads budget if union local members don’t agree to an adjustment. “If they don’t go along, the union will need to make up for it in the next contract,” Supervisor Dean Hoag said Supervisor Scott Jacobs said that if some county employees have to pay for something that others do not, there could be hard feelings. The situation that needs decided this month is how the county will deal with the six months before the start of the next fiscal year, at which time new wage and benefit schedules will be in place. Regarding the monthly special fee, that will be incorporated into the regular premium at the start of the fiscal year on July 1. Hammen noted that rather than a per family member amount, the number of family members will be averaged out as of July 1 and charged to everyone on the family plan. That is the way coverage is done now, with the same rate for family coverage whether that includes two people or 10.

By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor The sex offender registry for the state of Iowa lists 16 names of Calhoun County residents as convicted sex offenders. “The public should know who the sex offenders are in their community,” Tina Meth-Farrington, county attorney, said. She cites, as an example of the need for awareness, the time one of her sons was signed up for t-ball and the person who agreed to coach the team was a convicted sex offender. Meth-Farrington brought this fact to the attention of the person responsible for supervising the t-ball program and the situation was resolved. The registry can be accessed online at www.iowasexoffender. com. Listings for a specific county can be accessed in advanced search by simply listing the county wanted and leaving all other search criteria unfilled and pressing enter. By clicking on an individual offender, a person can view the offender’s photo, physical description, address and information about any convictions such as the what, when and where of the offense. Under the law, the sex offender must report to the sheriff’s office to be fingerprinted, photographed and have personal information updated. This occurs any time the offender moves or has a change in status, such as a new job. If a move involves going to a new county, the sheriffs of both the county where the person has resided and the county where the person is moving must be notified. There is a federal law requiring each state to maintain a sex offender registry so a person on a registry in one state must register in whatever state he moves to. The Iowa Code section regarding sex offender registry is 692A. The sex offender must also make regular visits to the sheriff’s office to update information on the registry, with the frequency depending on the tier of the sex offender designation. There are three tiers, with tier 3 being the most serious designation, requiring quarterly updating of information with the sheriff’s office. Of the 16 people registered in Calhoun County, seven are tier 3 offenders.

S.A.L.T. meeting slated

On Thursday, Nov. 21, area senior citizens are invited to attend the Calhoun County S.A.L.T. meeting, co-sponsored by Calhoun County law enforcement departments and agencies, and Calhoun County Public Health. “S.A.L.T.” meetings are regularly scheduled gatherings of seniors, law enforcement officials, and human service agencies that provide services and programs for older adults. The meetings are both educational and social, and provide an opportunity for seniors to learn about issues and topics which have an impact on their lives. The site for the meeting on the 21st will be at Pomeroy Community Center in Pomeroy. A Public Health nurse from Calhoun County Public Health will be available starting at 9 a.m. to provide free blood pressure checks for anyone interested, and the meeting/program will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. Refreshments will be served. The meeting typically adjourns by 11 a.m. The educational component of the meeting will feature Nancy Bruns. Nancy will be speak about her experience as a nurse/guardian on the May, 2013 Brushy Creek Honor Flight for Korean and WW II Veterans. She will share the privilege, joy and the emotions of sharing that day one on one with one veteran and with the whole group of veterans. Nancy is also a SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol) volunteer for Elderbridge. Her job is to Empower Seniors to Prevent Healthcare Fraud.  All S.A.L.T. meetings are free of charge and open to any interested senior citizen. No reservations are required. For additional information contact Tami Mohr or Sue Hammen at Calhoun County Public Health, 712-297-8323.

Meth-Farrington said that there are aggravating circumstances in the more serious designations, with one possible aggravating circumstance being that the victim is under age 14. The level of crime also determines whether the person is placed on the registry for a period of 10 years or for life. There are two sex offense cases pending in Calhoun County and one October sex offense conviction that have not yet resulted in placement on the registry. The October conviction of Lane Bachman of Lake City resulted from a prosecution that began before Meth-Farrington became the county attorney and involved a plea bargain arranged by the state attorney general’s office. The plea agreement was to an amended charge of lascivious acts with a child under the condition that the state would recommend probation. Those on the registry live under certain restrictions, such as a requirement that the offender cannot live within 2,000 feet of a school or registered day care (a requirement

that is waived for people who have stayed in the same residence since before the residency requirement was established). A registered sex offender must have permission from an administrator before going onto school or day care property or to a place where children regularly go such as a library or swimming pool. An exception is that the offender does not need to have permission to attend a school activity in which the offender’s child is a participant. In the case of a sex offender who is under the age of 18 when the offense occurred, the juvenile can request removal from the registry before turning 18 and it is at the discretion of the judge whether to grant that request. Recently there have been court rulings favoring the view that juveniles cannot be held accountable for life or for an unreasonable number of years for crimes committed as a juvenile. Meth-Farrington said that it is unknown how exactly those cases will affect future designations of juveniles as sex offenders.


Highly dangerous sex offenders can be committed to a Civil Commitment Unit for Sexual Offenders upon determination that the offender continues to pose a threat to society, but that can only be done after a prison sentence is completed. Meth-Farrington noted that such activities as mooning a crowd or getting caught urinating outside are technically considered sex offenses but are not the kind of activities that will get someone put on the sex offender registry. Meth-Farrington explained that sex crimes, especially those involving children as victims, pose a difficult challenge for law enforcement. “Unless the victim is killed or badly injured, there’s often not a report of that for a long time. The victim can be re-abused and reabused. A lot of the cases that we have are delayed-report cases with no physical evidence. It is a very emotional process for the victim and an uphill battle for the prosecutor,” she said.

Incumbents win most city elections By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor In the few city elections in Calhoun County on Nov. 5 in which there were more candidates than positions, the incumbents won reelection when the incumbents were on the ballot, with the exception of Pomeroy where the incumbent mayor lost to a challenger. In both Rockwell City and Manson, a challenger unsuccessfully tried to unseat a sitting city council member. In Somers, even an incumbent who was not on the ballot got more votes for mayor in Somers than a new candidate whose name was on the ballot. In Rockwell City, the vote for city council for the two at-large positions was David Dawson (incumbent) – 175; John Hepp (incumbent) – 171; Ryan Hildreth – 120. Phil Heinlen was unopposed for reelection as Mayor of Rockwell City and received 228 votes. In Manson, the council vote for the three at-large positions was Jeff Bohn (incumbent) – 82; Steve Smothers (incumbent) – 80; Daniel Poppinga (incumbent) – 79 and Marvin Nimke – 48. Incumbent Manson Mayor David George won reelection in Manson unopposed. In Somers, Tom Lawman did not get on the ballot for reelection for mayor but won the election with 19 write-in votes, while Rod Scott, who was on the ballot for that position got 8 votes. There were five names on the ballot for the five Somers city council position and they all won. Four were incumbents – Tom Beacom, Daniel Goodwin, Jerry Lawman and Lance Peed. One non-incumbent won election to the Somers City Council – Helen Schroeder. Brian Meyer got 64 votes to for mayor of Pomeroy, unseating incumbent mayor Gene Becker, who received 26 votes. There were only two names on the ballot for the two Pomeroy city council seats up for election, neither of them identified

as incumbents. Daniel Devore and Dennis Ehn won election to the Pomeroy City Council. In Jolley, there were six names on the ballot for the five council seats up for election, none of them identified as an incumbent. There was tie for fifth place so that position will be decided by drawing the name from the two fifth place candidates. The top four names with their vote totals were Marvin Ashbrook – 10; Rod Johnson – 8; Don Eldridge – 8 and Doug Aden – 8. Those tying for fifth place with 4 votes each were Phil Rastetter and Lori Schaffeer. In lake City, there were three names on the ballot for the three city council seats up for election. Tamela Green was the only incumbent on the ballot. She was reelected and two newly elected council members are Branden Blair and Doug Filmer. In Lohrville there were two council

seats up for election, with two names on the ballot. The mayor’s position was not up this year. Tam Mohr (incumbent) won reelection and new candidate Leonard Moran won election in Lohrville. In Farnhamville, the number of names on the ballot matched the number of positions. Incumbent mayor Frank Morgan won reelection as did incumbent council members Barbara Gregg and Jeff Kicklighter. Clint VanKley will be a new council member. In Rinard, the only candidates for the mayor position and for the three council seats were unchallenged. None of them were identified as incumbents. They are mayor – Steve Miller; council members – Ken Sibbit, Kevin Mosher and Linda Barmasse. In Yetter, Knierim and Lytton, all the incumbents ran unopposed.

Maid-Rites, Jell-O, Band-Aids and other things

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm

Maurice (Morris) Stamps With Veteran’s Day coming up, and all the baby boomers aging in, wondering what to do with themselves, I’d like to write about Morris Stamps of Seymour, in Southern Iowa’s Wayne County. Morris is 98 years young, a World War II veteran, was a teacher, football coach, and principal of Seymour High School, was married 60 years to his WW II sweetheart, and has written five books. As if this weren’t enough, I’d like to point out to all the baby boomers (war babies) out there, or otherwise retired people that find life in retirement rather humdrum, that Morris didn’t start writing these books until he was 92. Yep. His undergraduate degree from Knox College in Galesburg, IL was in English and History. He had considered becoming a journalist, before the war came along and rearranged his plans, so it isn’t all that unusual that he would write books. But at 92?! Most people his age feel lucky if they can hold a pen, or punch a keyboard, or remember events. But Morris is rather sharp, and one of Seymour’s prized treasures. Everyone knows him. After all, he was the high school principal, teacher, and head football coach, with a couple of conference championships and undefeated teams under his belt. The five books he has written are available at the Seymour Herald newspaper office. The first four books, “Shoal Creek Legends (1 through 4)” contain stories he remembers from his youth in postWorld War I, Southern Iowa, up to his induction into the Army at the start of World War II. The fifth book, “SNAFUs and Love Letters: Memories of an Old GI” recount his experiences as a message center chief stationed in Hawaii, and his letterwriting courtship of his beloved

Enid. These books were published by the Seymour Community Club with help from The Seymour Herald and the journalism class at the Seymour Community High School. Proceeds go to a scholarship fund in his wife’s and his name. Morris was kind enough to lend me two of his books. I read both in one day, something I have never done before, they are that well written, entertaining, historical, and interesting. A couple of snafus from the “SNAFUs and Love Letters” book: Morris was about to have his first date with Enid. He was on hold at the induction center at Camp Dodge. Enid was going to prepare him a home-cooked meal. He was getting ready for the date, his mouth watering, when he was ordered to get on a train for California. Drat! “What might have been?” He wound up in Hawaii after a long, arduous trip aboard a troop transport. He was in the Army for some time, and was working in the message center, when it was realized

that he’d had no basic training! He and a buddy were given a half-day, two-week, crash course. Olivia de Havilland (“Gone With the Wind”) had been visiting the troops. She came down with pneumonia and was hospitalized in an Army hospital. One of Staff Sergeant Maurice Stamps’ “dreaded daily duties” was to hand carry a message to General Richardson as to de Havilland’s condition. “Dang!” Morris was careful not to elaborate too much about de Havilland in his letters to Enid. At 98, Morris Stamps feels he has a couple more books left in him. Seymour, Iowa hopes so. His last book is in major libraries across the country. Seymour is looking forward to celebrating Morris Stamp’s 100th birthday. But Morris has more important things on his mind. A friend recently gave him a CD player for his television, and a CD of his favorite movie of all times, “Random Harvest” with Greer Garson and Ronald Colman. He has watched it hundreds of times.

My home town of Fort Madison used to have a Maid-Rite Restaurant, a tiny cafe consisting of a U-shaped counter around a kitchen, with permanently affixed stools at the counter as the only seating. The Maid-Rite chain dates back to the 1920s. Founder Fred Angell opened a restaurant in Muscatine that was the first restaurant in the country to offer drive-in curb hop service, an innovation that was soon copied by A&W and White Castle (according to Wikipedia). The Maid-Rite in Fort Madison sold carry-out orders but it didn’t have a car hop service. Sometime after I moved to Cherokee, the restaurant in Fort Madison was demolished for a development project and no new Maid-Rite franchise opened in my home town. The signature sandwich was (and still is in dozens of operating restaurants) the Maid-Rite, made with ground beef, not formed into a patty like a hamburger but prepared as a loose meat sandwich with an undisclosed blend of spices, giving it a distinctive flavor. It is not made with tomato sauce like a sloppy joe. When I ate a Maid-Rite, I had pickles and mustard for condiments, with ketchup on the side for my fries or onion rings. The Fort Madison Maid-Rite also served a tenderloin sandwich, not the anemically thin round piece of pork with a thin coating that sometimes passes for a tenderloin, but a substantial, irregularly-shaped, muchlarger-than-the-bun tenderloin, batter coated and deep fried. Due to limited finances, I more often had an economical, but tasty meal of a Maid-Rite, fries and a Pepsi rather than the costlier tenderloin, onion rings and chocolate shake. The items mentioned, along with a few other beverages, are all I can remember of the Fort Madison MaidRite menu and may have been all that there was. The Maid-Rite wasn’t the kind of restaurant where you spent a lot of time contemplating choices. When I moved to Cherokee, there was no Maid-Rite in the northwest quadrant of the state that I knew of. There is now a Maid-Rite in Fort Dodge, but either it did not exist then or I was just unaware of it. The MaidRite along the Intestate near Ankeny was not there when I first moved to Cherokee. A similar type of sandwich, the tavern, is sold in Sioux City. The tavern originated in the Ye Olde Tavern in Sioux City and is a loose meat sandwich without tomato sauce. Unlike the Maid-Rite, the term “tavern” is not a registered trademark and the recipe was never kept secret.

Ross Rambles By Ken Ross, Graphic-Advocate Editor

There are a few locations in Sioux City and one in Le Mars that sell taverns based on the original recipe. I was surprised when Family Table in Cherokee announced that it was adding Maid-Rites to its menu. Actually, the newspaper I was working for announced the addition of Maid-Rites to the Family Table menu. I asked Nancy, who handled the ad account, whether Family Table had gotten a franchise from the MaidRite company to sell Maid-Rites. She told me that the restaurant was just calling the sandwich a Maid-Rite. I can’t imagine an independent restaurant calling a sandwich a Big Mac or a Whopper, but apparently the lack of a history of Maid-Rites in Cherokee led people to the assumption that “Maid-Rite” was a generic term for a type of sandwich rather than a trademark. The item was soon dropped from the menu. I was again surprised to learn that in Calhoun County, the term MaidRite is used generically for a type of sandwich. Supervalu in Lake City has sold a sandwich called a Maid-Rite for lunch on some Saturdays and Jubilee Foods in Rockwell City served what was called Maid-Rites in the deli, a practice continued under new ownership at Southside Grocery. We get menus for the congregate meals served at the Rockwell City Community Center which we publish under the header Senior Menus. Whenever the menu lists Maid-Rite, I change that to loose meat sandwich. I probably should change Jello on the menu to gelatin but I leave it alone under the theory that the desert might actually be made with Jell-O brand gelatin rather than Knox or a store brand. Some product names that were originally brand names are generic

product names now, such as aspirin and cellophane. Other products continue to retain trademark names such as Jell-O, Styrofoam, Crescent (wrench) and Band-Aid. In the case of Band-Aid, the term bandage does not fully describe the product and it would be awkward using an analogy such as, “We need a comprehensive solution to the problem, not just a small bandage affixed to an adhesive strip.” In much of the south, the word Coke is used generically for a type of beverage, otherwise known as pop or soda, depending on the part of the country you’re from. This can lead to an exchange between customer and merchant such as the following: “I’ll have a Coke.” “What kind of Coke?” “A Pepsi.” I haven’t had the “Maid-Rite” at Supervalu or at the congregate meals or seen how they are made, but the sandwich at Southside is definitely a sloppy joe, made with tomato sauce. Recently, a fundraiser was held at the Lake City Library that included the sale of what was called “MaidRites.” The Graphic-Advocate had ads and news briefs promoting the event. I didn’t raise the issue of the MaidRite trademark until after the event, actually until now. I had a “MaidRite” at the event. It was good but it was definitely a sloppy joe, made with tomato sauce. Apparently, in Calhoun County, the term Maid-Rite means sloppy joe. The kind of sandwich served at congregate meals is likely a sloppy joe, but I’ll continue to call it a loose meat sandwich until I know for sure. One thing I’m sure of, it is not a Maid-Rite.

SMCH provides educational luncheon Contributed by SMCH Over fifty people gathered at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH) to attend the November “Lunch Connection” event. The program featured two speakers on “Navigate Your Numbers” and “What is a Health Coach?” Kari Swisher, Certified Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH), began the program by explaining what lab

wellness numbers mean to the patient. She described cholesterol and ways to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the body. She also discussed ways to reduce blood pressure and how to watch for the warning signs of diabetes. She encouraged the audience to begin healthy diets, increase exercise, and get yearly physicals. Kristy Vogel, registered nurse and Health Coach at SMCH and McCrary Rost Clinics, spoke about the Health Coach program that was

initiated this year. She introduced the five health coaches on staff. Kristy described the goal of the program as helping the patient navigate the health care system and to help the patient manage his own health care and to act on his behalf. The “Lunch Connection” is

held four times at year at Stewart Memorial. The next session will be held in March 2014. To learn more about the services Stewart Memorial Community Hospital has to offer, visit us at www.stewartmemorial. org.

Speaking at SMCH’s “Lunch Connection,” Kari Swisher, ARNP-C, encourages attendees to know their numbers for cholesterol, glucose, waist circumference, BMI, and blood pressure.

City of Rockwell City City of Rockwell City November 4, 2013 7:00PM Mayor Heinlen called the meeting to order with the following members present: Lange, Hepp, Walters, Dawson and Hendricks. Motion by Walters, second by Dawson, approving the agenda; unanimous. Motion by Hepp, second by Hendricks, to approve the consent agenda of the October 21 meeting minutes, bills as submitted and Casey’s General Store Beer License; unanimous. This being the time and place, Mayor Heinlen opened the public hearing on the application for Community Development Block Grant for the Sanitary Sewer Improvement Project. Shirley Helgevold, Midas Council of Governments explained: 1. How the need for the activities was identified: The City of Rockwell City has been experiencing increasing amounts of ground and surface water infiltration in the sewer collection system. The infiltration of ‘clear water’ into the collection system results in the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant receiving flows in excess of 1.5 MGD (millions gallons a day) during large rain events. The significant amount of inflow and infiltration into the collection system contributes to sewer backups in residences. During high rain events, water had to be pumped out of the High Street lift station and the Tonawanda lift station into the storm sewers on numerous occasions. The wastewater treatment plant has also experienced issues with high rain events. The normal flow is 0.2 MGD, but during high rain events the plant processes 1 MGD, pumps 1.7 MGD into an equalization pond, and bypasses several MGD to Lake Creek. 2. How the proposed activities will be funded and the sources of funds: The proposed activities will be funded in part through a Community

Development Block Grant provided by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and SRF/bonding. c. Date the CDBG application will be submitted: On or before midnight on November 13, 2013. d. Requested amount of federal funds: $500,000 CDBG funds from IEDA and $1,125,052.99 City. e. Estimated portion of federal funds that will benefit lowand moderate-income persons: The proposed project will benefit the entire city of Rockwell City. Since approximately 49.7% of Rockwell City’s population is LMI, that is the estimated percentage that will benefit LMI persons. (Approximately $248,500 of CDBG funds will benefit LMI persons) Rockwell City is still collecting LMI surveys, so the percentage is not final as of this time. f. Where the proposed activities will be conducted: The proposed activity will be conducted throughout the City of Rockwell City and within the existing city right-of-way. g. Plans to minimize displacement of persons and businesses resulting of funded activities: N/A. h. Plans to assist persons actually displaced: N/A i. The nature of the proposed activities: The proposed activities will upgrade and improve the current sanitary sewer collection system in Rockwell City. This will be completed by reducing inflow and infiltration throughout the collection system. This work will include sewer main replacements, service replacement, cleanout replacement with manholes, and rehabilitation of manholes, lining, and grouting of services. Person(s) authorized to receive and respond to citizens proposals, questions and complaints concerning the proposed (funded) activities will be: Rockwell City, City Clerk 335 Main Street, Rockwell City, IA 50579, (712) 2977041.

From Martha Sorenson’s Lake City High School Alumni Report — Cottonwood Cemetery derived its name because of the first picket fence built around it then planted with a “live” fence of Cottonwood palings. Why was this cemetery placed where it is today? The reason we find is that over 100 years ago, eleven men met at the little country school to plan a burial ground. There were already several graves there, so these men decided this area was to be a permanent cemetery. A Cemetery Association was formed as the Lake Creek Cemetery Association with C. W. Thompson, president; H. H. Hutchinson, secretary; Jesse Hutchinson, treasurer. Other charter members were Wash Ripley, John Oxenford, E. M. Reynolds, John Brady, John Stennett, F. Hucka and Lark Williams. The oldest stone in Cottonwood bears the name of Mary E. Denny, daughter of J. A. and S. E. Denny. The date only, May 20, 1832, is below her name. Eliza Minera Oxenford’s stone, (daughter of Wm. & Lucinda Oxenford) has the date of November 1865 on it. Last Wednesday, Vivienne Nokes, Mildred McConkey, Alice Zimmerman, Leona Johnson, Hester Crosswait and Donna Birchard visited the Wildlife Refuge at DeSoto Bend and then went to the Firehouse Theater in Omaha, Nebraska to see the play “Ain’t Misbehaving.” Myrna Bastin of Gowrie, Mildred Clutter of Farnhamville, Kathryn Somers of Lohrville, Donna Birchard, Lenore Hildreth, Verda Miller and Eldon & Connie Jones, all of Lake City, had dinner at Bishop’s in Des Moines on Friday evening.

Poen sees dramatic changes in farming

By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Kevin Poen has seen rather dramatic changes in farm equipment and in farm yield during his life and expects that his children will see a lot more changes. Poen and his wife, Lynn, a paraeducator at South Central Calhoun High School, have two middle school aged children – Tiffany in 8th grade and Kyle in 7th grade. Kevin harvests with an eight-row head and remembers his father using a two-row head. “I think how much bigger can it get, but then I think there’s a lot more to come,” he said. Kevin grew up on a farm not far from his present home just east of Yetter. He also has fields where he grows crops and pastures cattle southwest of Lake City. Kevin graduated from Lake City High School in 1981, back when they were the Eagles. Lynn, formerly Lynn Minten, grew up on a farm in the Orange City/Remsen area. All indications are that their children will carry on the family tradition. Both are active in 4-H and both plan on participating in FFA when they go to high school, as well as in sports. The children can remember back to when there were hogs on the farm, but the farm has gotten away from that. The farm continues with its feeder cattle operation, breeding

The Poen family, from left to right: Tiffany, Lynn, Kevin and Kyle; carry on a farming tradition that will likely be continued by the newest generation. cows and selling the crossbred black calves at 500 to 600 lbs. They also grow corn, soybeans and a little alfalfa, mostly in rotation with some corn on corn. Kevin has always wanted to farm. “I enjoy what I’m doing,” he said. He studied mechanics for a year after high school but that was for his use on the farm, not as a separate career.

Farming takes most of his time. He says he likes golf but doesn’t make the time to pursue that activity. “Spring is definitely the most challenging time. The calving starts mid-March. I like to get most of the calving out of the way before planting but that doesn’t always happen,” he said. The weather was far from ideal

this past year, with a dry late summer, but Kevin says the harvest was better than he expected, certainly better than the previous year when there was a terribly dry spring and summer. As well as getting away from growing hogs, Kevin is no longer growing popcorn or seed corn like he used to. He said that he enjoyed doing

that but harvesting such crops after harvesting standard crops requires thorough cleaning of the heads and it was simply more practical for a one-combine operation to drop the specialty crops. Kevin said that despite what some environmentalists indicate, livestock operations have gotten cleaner in recent years with manure handling

more carefully done. Computer work has replaced paperwork and has allowed much more complete planning, record keeping and mapping than previously but it is still requires spending time away from what Kevin prefers doing -getting out in the field. “A lot of the time he’s out there from sunup to sundown,” Lynn said.

The cattle operation which includes fields south of Lake City will soon be consolidated for the winter at the Kevin and Lynn Farm just east of Yetter.

Batz farm continues into fifth generation By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate The Verle Batz farm north of Yetter has been a Batz farm since 1888 when Verle’s great-grandfather, Valentine Batz, bought it for $2,400. The farm was subsequently owned

by Verle’s grandfather, John G. and then Verle’s father, Paul. In 1974, Verle bought the farm from his father. “This has always been my home,” Verle said, referring not only to the farm but also to the house where he


and his father both grew up. Verle has also had homes in other Iowa towns but the place near Yetter was always headquarters. He went to school through the 7th grade in Yetter before the elementary school closed there and he went to

down the road. The father and son sometimes share equipment and resources although they maintain separate operations. After Kirby was in the service, he became a construction contractor. He still does some work as a contractor but is phasing that work out as he takes on farming full time, the fifth generation of Batz farmers at that location. Verle noted that Kirby’s 12-yearold son Dane has also indicated an interest in farming, hauling grain by himself for the first time this year. “Who knows how long this will go on,” Verle said. The farm has grown and has changed over the years, having had dairy, cattle and swine, previously. Now Verle has no livestock. He grows soybeans and corn in a 50/50 mix. Verle said Kirby grows some hay although Verle does not, having no need for it. One Batz farm tradition Verle has continued and expanded on, is being handy. He does mechanical work and construction projects. He has an extensive shop in what used to be a cattle barn, including some work for his neighbors. Verle said of his father, “He was real handy. He could do about anything, but as you can see, he wasn’t a good welder.” Verle was referring to a mud scraper where the bottoms of boots could be cleaned

of mud, Paul’s first welding project. It was functional but not as neatly welded as an expert welder might like. “He never could weld worth a damn,” Verle said. Verle’s projects range from minor repairs to such major undertakings as his recently completed catwalk 30 or 40 feet up in the air. Whenever he has the time, he enjoys woodworking. He used native walnut for trim and wall panels in his home. He built a dresser as well as other furniture from walnut. His sons have carried on the tradition of being handy, his son Kirby operating a construction business. His other son, Pat, is an electrician in Eau Claire, Wisc. His grandson, Dane, also shows an aptitude for working in the shop. “He’s a good learner,” Verle said of his grandson. Both Kirby and Pat are married to school teachers. Kirby and Alisha have three children: Sydney – 14, Dane – 12 and Ryann – 4. Pat and Karen have two children: Tia – 12 and Jaxson – 9. Verle noted that farming has its ups and downs as far as profitability and there will inevitably be challenges in he future. “If you’re not too heavily leveraged, you should do fine,” he said.

10 The Graphic-Advocate SAlute

to Ag

NOVEMBER 13, 2013

It’s a family operation for the Richardsons By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Among the family traditions Eric Richardson has followed was attending Iowa State University, as did his parents John and Gail, and his two brothers, Curt and Dean. His two daughters attend ISU currently. Bailley is a junior majoring in Ag Engineering and Piper is a freshman. His son, Aubrey, is currently a junior at South Central Calhoun High School and will likely also attend ISU. Eric, a 1982 graduate of Lake City High School, got a degree in Agronomy at ISU and then went to work for an independent crop consulting company, Servi-Tech, in Nebraska. That is where he met his wife, Barb, who worked in the Servi-Tech lab. Barb is originally from Spearville, Kansas, east of Dodge City. Eric and Barb subsequently returned to the family farm along Hwy. 175 west of Lake City. John and Gail have a place just a few miles away and Curt has a farm south of Lohrville. “This is very much a family enterprise,” Eric said. Eric, John and Curt often work together and Barb drives a truck for the farming operation. Gail keeps the crew fed during harvest and planting. “Aubrey just turned 17. He’s a lot of help,” Eric added. Dean is a chef in Des Moines but comes back in the spring and fall,

during the busiest seasons, to help out. Besides, corn and soybeans with acreage divided about 2/3 and 1/3, Eric and his family raise cattle. This includes cows, calves and feeder cattle. The cattle are mixed breed, mostly from black angus bulls. A recently completed cattle building has an automated feeding system. There is a slatted floor for manure management. The building has a low ceiling with the windows winterized. The building interior never gets below freezing although there is no heat source other than the cattle themselves. Part of the herd is for a specialty non-hormone beef that is mostly shipped to Europe. There is a premium paid for the beef but this basically just pays for the extra feed needed for the non-hormone cattle to gain weight. Eric noted that the demands of the farm are constant, particularly from spring calving until after harvest. “From about the end of March until Thanksgiving it’s non-stop seven days a week. Sometimes at the end of July you’ll get a little break but the last two years, with the weather being like it has been, the cows have required extra attention,” Eric said. This extra work has included fencing, feeding and providing water. Technology and equipment

Eric and Barb Richardson make their home on the farm property where Eric grew up. Barb is originally from Spearville, Kansas. upgrades have made the operation more efficient. Eric noted that

there are a variety of soil types in that area of the county, making

new soil mapping based equipment and software particularly useful. The equipment allows for planting adjustments on the go. An improved truck design now allows back-to-back hauling of grain and silage in the same truck. “It works really well,” Barb said. Eric says his experiences in Nebraska have been useful for him at his farm operation. He has one irrigation pivot, unusual for an Iowa farm but certainly beneficial during the last couple of years. Some of the improvements in operation develop from just a better way of doing something rather than improvements in equipment or computer technology. Eric noted that the process of storing silage used to involve covering it with plastic and weighting it down with tires filled with water. “Covering the silage pile used to take a four-wheel drive tractor and take the whole day and everybody

was soaking wet, everybody hated it,” Eric said. Now the pile is covered with repurposed 20 by 36 repurposed billboard vinyls weighted down by gravel in mesh bags. “We’ve taken a job that everybody dreaded and made it into one that isn’t so bad,” Eric said. He believes that having both livestock and crops provides some security for a farmer. “As long as you’re diversified with livestock as well as row crops one or the other should do well,” Eric said.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Liz Guess and Barbara Winkelman attended the November meeting of the Greene County Historical Society on the 1st at the United Methodist Church in Scranton. The presenters of the program, Sandra Somers and Audrey Williams, both from Lake City, revisited the contentious issue of the 1970’s when a proposal was made to build a dam on the North Raccoon River at a point north of Scranton. It would have affected much of our neighborhood. In the end, it didn’t happen, but it was good to be reminded that objecting to an idea can make a difference. Vernon Hamilton accompanied the Paton Presbyterian Church minister, Pastor Dan Emmett, to a Presbytery at Conrad on Sunday Nov. 3. Bob and Karen Gingery and Lizzie were in Holland the first weekend of November to visit Rob and Renee Gingery. The family was celebrating birthdays for three of their children. Madelyn was 9 on Sept. 13, Wyatt

was one on Oct. 10, and Peyton will be 12 on Nov. 17th. Joining in the celebrating were Anna Gingery of Eldridge, Todd and Teresa Arenholz and girls of Waverly, Josh and Molly Gingery, David Gingery and girls, all of Slater; also Renee’s parents and grandmother, Terry and Dennis Ludwig and Marie Morrison, all of Mount Vernon. David’s wife Jeana was on a business trip to Indianapolis. Friday evening, Karen Gingery and Renee attended a concert by Chonda Pierce at the Riverview Conference Center in Cedar Falls. Chonda is a Christian comedian and singer and the program was titled “Girl Talk”. Bill and Jan Schmitt of Alleman, also Ken Schmitt of Carroll and Bryce Schmitt of Des Moines were visitors and dinner guests at Paul and Pat Schmitt’s home on the 2nd. Anyone having an item for Adaza news may contact Pat Schmitt at 515-389-3737.

Carol and Larry Hood who were gifted the prize


Leon and Judy Hendricks of Lake City recently returned from San Antonio, Texas after visiting in the home of Brian and Sheila Hendricks. Their grandson Mathew Hendricks and Vanessa Carrasco of Lewisville, Texas, also went to San Antonio, where they all enjoyed much sightseeing. On their return trip, Leon and Judy had a layover in the Pheonix, Ariz.

Airport where they were met by their sons, Scott and Kent Hendricks of Mesa, Ariz. and their granddaughter Sarah Hendricks and great grandson Braylen Hughes of Gilbert, Ariz. Braylen was celebrating his 3rd birthday that day which provided the opportunity for Leon and Judy to enjoy watching him open his gifts and have a brief visit with everyone.



(Editor’s note: Due to an email problem, the Sunnyview News that should have appeared in the Nov. 6 edition of the GraphicAdvocate did not appear. Here is the combined columns for two weeks. We apologize for the error) We extend a warm welcome to new Sunnyview resident Alice May Stotts, who has moved in recently. The Sunnyview noon meal on Oct. 31 was attended by some notable strangers (some appeared stranger than others). There was a flapper, a fisherman, several people with outstanding hats and creative folks with “clothes inside out.” There was Mr. & Mrs. Donald Duck, at least two rabbits, more than one witch, and a Hollywood princess. A variety of mysterious masked figures looked a little scary -- they had to remove their masks in order to eat. Mr. & Mrs. Waste Basket were there, and someone in a nightgown and perhaps a gypsy. We saw festive masks reminiscent of “Mardi Gras” and Mr. & Mrs. Duck Dynasty dressed in camouflage. The kitchen staff was colorful – one as a “Walmart Shopper,” one as a “police officer” and one as a “prisoner” clad in black and white stripes. Before dinner two adult-sized ghosts swooped around the courtyard in circles, and then came into the dining room to join the group. What fun! Someone went to a lot of work. An interesting poster has taken up residence on one of the dining room tables. It is about as large as a regular poster but it is “ghost” shaped, and it is displayed on an upright stand. On it we see numerous small photos of T-shirts (about 48 of them), the kind of shirts that have a humorous preprinted message like “The first 50 years of marriage are the hardest” or “I’m not short, I’m fun-size” or “Admit it, life would be so boring without me.” An unknown someone has hand-written the name of a Sunnyview resident or staff member next to each T-shirt. Yes, someone went to a lot of work. So, who is the creative genius behind this? (Could it be someone named Jo Ann?) Let’s honor our veterans! For instance, we could attend the Veteran’s Day Program at the SCC Middle School Gym on Tonawanda Street in Rockwell City on Monday, Nov. 11 at 1:30 p.m. (At the SCC website, the updated on-line calendar lists the program “start time” as 1:30 p.m., which is different than the time printed in the 2013-2014 Rockwell City Rotary Community Calendar.) In past years it has been a fine program with area color guards, band and vocal music, art work and speakers. Some of us remember attending the Veteran’s Day program when it was at the Lytton school building. (The 2013-2014 South Central Calhoun on-line calendar may be found at How about those Sunnyview door decorations! Many residents have personalized the doors to their suites: there are wreaths, fall flowers, leaves, scarecrows, pumpkins, and even Indian corn. REMEMBER WHEN: Remember when black and white televisions first came out? In Rockwell City, some of us went uptown to see one of the first black and white televisions at Cooper Radio and Television. We sat on chairs outside on the sidewalk in front of the store on Saturday nights to watch the “TV.” We extend a warm welcome to Jack Lynch, new Sunnyview resident. Word has it that Jack moved in on Friday, Nov. 1, which was one of those “big wind” days – that must have been a challenge. The times, they are a’changin. That big wind all day on Sunday took care

of a lot of our beautiful fall colors. The leaves have blown to who knows where. Shall we hold out hope for “Indian Summer?” According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac website, the time of occurrence is important: the warm days must follow a spell of cold weather or a good hard frost. Also, the conditions “must occur between St. Martin’s Day (November 11) and November 20. For over 200 years, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has adhered to the saying, ‘If All Saints’ (November 1) brings out winter, St. Martin’s brings out Indian summer.’” We’ll see. Since the Daylight Savings time change, it gets dark around suppertime. Now we need to find mittens, boots and snow-suits. Do you have wax for your sled? Are your ice skates sharpened? Those of us who drive around in the country may have noticed the “wild” birds congregating on the power lines. It is amazing how many birds can fit along those wires. What could they be discussing – perhaps planning their flight south for the winter? Then all at once they take off, as if on a cue, and become a dark cloud in the sky. The cloud changes shape several times, and then settles down on a new place to roost. At the same time that the weather becomes more restive outside, the card games seem to be heating up inside. Thank goodness the card players and those dedicated jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts manage to co-exist in the same lounge area. All this activity takes place in the “bird room,” next to the Sunnyview aviary. So, it’s a good thing the birds don’t mind sharing their space. Can you imagine the racket if all the birds and the card players and puzzle workers had a war over their claims to the territory? It’s about time to retrieve our Thanksgiving decorations from storage. In fact, the dining room decorations have already been transformed. The pumpkins with fall flowers and leaves have given way to colorful ceramic turkeys. While we are at it, we might as well bring out the Christmas lights so we will have a little time to test them before they are needed. Thanksgiving is “late” this year, since November starts on a Friday. In fact, Thanksgiving is so late that it will be less than four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some of us are hoping for a green Thanksgiving and maybe even a green Christmas. We might wish for a good soaking rain, too, after the harvest. There is still time to do Christmas cards -- will you be sending cards by U.S. Mail or by e-mail? Another “plan ahead” activity is to buy some 2014 calendars, and to get ready for basketball season.

Stewart Memorial Community Hospital earns Top Work Places Award Contributed by SMCH The goal and desire of Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH) is to be the best place for patients to receive care, the best place for employees to work, and the best place for physicians to practice. The effort SMCH has put forth to accomplish that goal is now recognized. For the second time in three years, the Lake City hospital

has earned a spot on the Des Moines Register Top Work Places list. The award is a result of surveys filled out by hospital employees which included comments such as, “At SMCH, what is found most meaningful about working at the organization is getting to practice my chosen profession in a supportive environment,” and “...while working as a team to provide the best patient

care we can.” The 2013 list of Top Work Places was published in the Des Moines Register in September. “From the survey many positive comments were made regarding why our employees love their jobs. These comments came from new employees as well as those who have been here many years. Ranking in the top 20 for mid-size employers in Iowa is a great achievement,”

says Cindy Carstens, interim Chief Executive Officer. This is the third year the Des Moines Register has identified top work places in Iowa. They collaborate with Workplace Dynamics to conduct employee satisfaction surveys. Companies were either contacted by Workplace Dynamics to participate in the survey process or nominated to

participate by an employee. To be eligible to compete for the award, a certain percentage of employees need to respond to the survey. “The response rate of our employees was well over the required 40%. We achieved a 70% response rate and we are very pleased with that,” says Bill Albright, vice president of Human Resources. The survey asked employees to rate statements that have a high correlation to how they feel about their workplace on a seven-point scale. The statements address fair pay, feeling genuinely appreciated, and how well their manager listens to them. “A key to an organization’s success is its ability to adapt to a changing external environment. As it gets tougher and tougher to respond to those changes, employees are key assets and play an important role in our success. Without our employees we would not be able to adapt to the changes healthcare is experiencing and provide the quality care we do at SMCH,” notes Carstens. Survey comments from employees reflect that sentiment, “As a team we are constantly improving our services and how we respond to our patients. Senior managers at SMCH are futuristic and appreciate the value of good employees. SMCH is ahead of

the pack, not in the middle or the end when keeping up on new laws and regulations.” The pursuit of excellence not only positively effects employee satisfaction, but patient care as well. “Satisfied employees do a better job of taking care of patients, and we want our employees to know they are valued here,” Albright says. Low employee turnover reflects the job satisfaction many employees find at SMCH. “Of our 270 full and part-time employees, more than 20 have over 30 years of service and 58 employees have more than 20 years of service at SMCH,” notes Albright.  “I am grateful to all of our SMCH employees for their service to our mission. Their genuine passion to give outstanding care to our patients and positive attitude is what makes SMCH an amazing place,” says Carstens. “It is an immense honor to be a part of this team and help create a wonderful place for employees to fulfill their passion of taking care of others”.  To learn more about the services offered at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital, log onto our website at www. or follow them on Facebook at SMCHLakeCity.

SHADY OAKS Shady Oaks Care Center and the Lake City Library have a long history working together to put on the Great Get Away Programs. Over the years, we have traveled and visited many interesting places.  On Wednesday, November 6, 2013, we combined the Great Get Away with our annual Veteran’s Program.

Lake City American Legion Post #31 and VFW Post #1899 presented the posting of the colors as our Veterans were escorted to their seat. Guest speaker Marlene Welander, Veteran’s Affair Director, shared a slide presentation on Honor Flight for WWII Veteran’s and reminisced about the trip to Washington, DC.

Don Lauver, Warren Clark and Hugh Storm also shared their wonderful experience on the trip. Legion Members Gary Streeter, Gary Fahan and Denny Moulds presented each Veteran a certificate and pin honoring them for their service in their respective military branch. Chaplain Elaine followed

with prayer and Jace Neubaum, a South Central Calhoun High School Student, concluded the program with taps on trumpet. We would like to thank the Friends of the Library and all those who make this program such a success!

Yard and Garden: Dealing with Fallen Leaves

SCC Volleyball competes in regional finals

their own metabolism and growth. A compost pile composed mainly of leaves decomposes slowly because the leaves don’t contain adequate levels of nitrogen for the microbes. To promote decomposition, mix leaves with grass clippings or other materials high in nitrogen. If possible, shred the leaves prior to composting. The smaller the size of the material, the faster it will decompose. Construct the compost pile in layers. Each 6- to 8-inch-layer of plant material should be topped with 1 inch of soil or compost. A small amount of an all-purpose garden fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, can also be added to supply nitrogen to the microbes. Continue to build the compost pile in layers until it is 3 to 5 feet high. Finally, water the pile regularly and turn it about once every two weeks. Can leaves be used as a mulch? Shredded or composted leaves are an excellent mulch for vegetable gardens, raspberry plantings, perennial flower beds and around trees and shrubs. While the leaves of some trees, such as oak, are acidic, they can be safely used in the yard and garden. An oak leaf mulch has little effect on soil pH. Leaves are a poor winter mulch for strawberries and herbaceous perennials. Plants covered by leaves over the winter months may be damaged due to excess moisture trapped under the leaves. Clean, weed-free wheat, oat or soybean straw is an excellent winter mulch for strawberries and perennials.

By Richard Jauron, Willy Klein AMES, Iowa – At this time of year homeowners clearly understand why another term for “autumn� is “fall.� With the slightest breeze, shade and ornamental trees send a shower of leaves to carpet the lawn, drive and sidewalk. Horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach answer homeowners’ questions as they decide how to deal with fallen leaves. To have additional questions answered, contact Hortline at hortline@iastate. edu or call 515-294-3801. Do I need to remove the leaves on my lawn? Turfgrass plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to manufacture food. In fall, lawn areas beneath large trees are often completely covered with leaves. The leaf debris prevents the turfgrass plants from manufacturing and storing food prior to winter. A thick layer of leaves (little or no grass is visible) will need to be raked up and removed. It’s possible to deal with a thin layer of leaves (areas of grass are clearly visible) by chopping them up with a mulching mower. Small quantities of shredded leaves will filter down into the grass canopy rather than rest on the grass surface. How can I accelerate the decomposition of leaves in my compost pile? Leaves contain high levels of carbon and small amounts of nitrogen. The microbes that decompose leaves and other types of organic matter require nitrogen for
