By Nick Pedley Snowflakes and packed gyms greeted visitors at two Veterans Day programs in Sheffield and Rockwell on a blustery November morning Monday. The day’s tributes kicked off at Sheffield in the high school gym. American Legions from Sheffield, Thornton and Meservey were on hand to lead the ceremonies which featured both music and speakers. Legion Commander Dick Brown welcomed guests prior to the posting of the colors. Pastor Art Zewert delivered the invocation and benediction, while the West Fork High School band and choir provided the program’s music. Director Shannon Curtis led the band in “The Star Spangled Banner� and “Where Eagles Soar,� which were followed by the choir’s stirring rendition of “Battle Hymn of the Republic.� The program was highlighted by guest speaker Bill Pick, Capt. ARNG Ret. Pick lives in Sheffield and is a member of local American Legion Post #277. He gave guests a history of Veterans Day, and also touched on why the holiday was important to honor America’s service men and women for their commitment to our freedoms and liberties. The program came to a close following a solemn firing squad salute to fallen veterans and the playing of “Taps.� Following the tribute at Sheffield, it was on to Rockwell for a program hosted by Terri Anderson’s eighth grade U.S. history class. The group provided an informative program to an audi-

By Nick Pedley West Fork junior Celeste Staudt will briefly become the center of attention at one of the state’s largest amateur sporting events next weekend in Cedar Falls. However, she won’t be playing in any game. Staudt was selected to perform the national anthem at the Class 4A high school football championship game in the UNIDome Nov. 22. The performance will be the biggest of Staudt’s music career, and she admitted that she’s already felt some jitters. “I don’t know what it’s going to be like, but I know I’m going to be very, very nervous,� she said. “Our musical here at school is nothing like this.� Though the size of the crowd may be a little intimidating, Staudt has plenty of reasons to be confident in her musical abilities. She’s become quite a standout in both choir and band during her first three years at West Fork and is involved in nearly all facets of the music department. She’s in chamber choir, show choir, women’s choir and concert choir, and also plays the flute, piano and occasionally the piccolo and oboe in band. Staudt attended a list of music clinics, vocal festivals and honor choir events at various colleges across the state this fall with her fellow classmates as well. Her dedication and hard work didn’t go unnoticed by West Vocal Music Director Shelby Wilson, who felt Staudt would be a perfect fit when she saw an opening for the 4A championship game. “I already had her voice recorded and they needed someone. So, I just sent off the recording to them and they chose her,� Wilson said. “It’s more of a

She plans to start working with Staudt over the next week in preparation for the performance, but she felt Staudt is more than capable of putting on a good show without her help “It’s wonderful to work with someone who’s as passionate about music as Celeste is,� Wilson said. “She’s not only extremely talented, but she also works hard at what she does.� Staudt got her start in music at young age during performances at church. Her passion has blossomed in the years since, and she’s begun to eye other opportunities when her career at West Fork comes to an end in 2015. She hopes to continue singing in college but remained

hesitant to get too serious about it. “It doesn’t seem like a promising career, because so many people go into – it’s just not realistic,� she said. “I’ll definitely be involved in choir at college, but I don’t know if it’ll be part of my major.� All that future planning seemed trivial to Staudt as she talked about her upcoming performance at the UNI-Dome. She’s sung the national anthem in front of crowds at West Fork basketball and volleyball games before, and said she hoped that experience would pay off in her preparation for next Friday’s game. However, her practice strategy remained rather simple. “We’ll just find out which key works and sounds the best and use that,� she said.

Article submitted by Anne Jorgensen, West Fork FFA Reporter The West Fork FFA introduced a new community project this year called Feed the Farmer. Some of the FFA members went to the Rockwell and Chapin elevators to serve a meal to farmers or anyone else that came. The meal included hamburgers, chips, water and bars that were donated by other FFA members.

For beginning the first time, there was a good turnout and many people learned more about the West Fork FFA. “It was a great way to give back to our farmers,� said Zach Grieman, a member that helped. The West Fork FFA plans to continue this project in the future and hopefully expand it to other co-ops in the district.

By Nick Pedley The Swaledale council met in rather somber session Nov. 5, following a pair of events that shook the town over the past week. Mayor John Drury kicked off the meeting by acknowledging the fatal accident that claimed the life of Devlin Obregon, 7, of Swaledale on Nov. 1. Drury also noted the council was one member short that night following the passing of Councilman Elmer Reicherts, who also died on Nov. 1 at the Rockwell Community Nursing Home. Drury stressed the necessity for community support of both the Obregon and Reicherts families as they cope with their losses. “Elmer was just a great resource for the city council,� Drury said after the meeting. “He helped a lot when we were trying to fix things like the snow plow. His real bring to the council was his knowledge and his contacts.� According to city clerk Judy Witte, the city won’t appoint anyone to his seat because it was set to expire on Jan. 1, 2014. “We’ll just wait because there’s only one meeting left and his spot was filled in the election,� Witte said after the meeting. The council got to work on their agenda following the brief acknowledgment of the local losses. Public Works Director Greg Meier told the group that the rundown house located at 204 2nd St. south of the fire station will be burned on Nov. 16. The fire department will use it as a practice burn to bone up on their skills and workout their equipment. The alternate date for the burn is scheduled for Nov. 22 in case of inclement weather. The house, which is owned by Doors, Inc., is one of two properties on the council’s tentative list for de-

struction. Drury reported that talks with the owners of the old Catholic church have progressed, and he said he’s hopeful they’ll allow the fire department burn it down soon. Drury said he planned to ask for a continuance on Nov. 12 in the city’s ongoing case over a nuisance violation levied against the owners this summer. Drury also noted that some of the brush and overgrowth around the property had been cleaned up recently, which he felt was a positive step in the right direction. The council had heard from an individual during the summer who was interested in buying the property and moving his business there after demolishing the church. However, Drury thought talks between that individual and the owners had somewhat cooled. “I don’t know how that’s looking, but I don’t think it’s that good,� said Drury. “But they’ve been talking with the fire department about the burn, and they’ve been receptive, which is good.� Other business The council approved a building permit for Doors, Inc., for an addition to the company’s shop. The group also OK’d a resolution which approved the tax abatement plan for the business. Doors, Inc., will now receive an abatement on 100 percent of the tax on the actual value of the improvements for three years. According to Drury, keeping the company in town was a priority for the council. Doors, Inc., had been thinking about relocating recently due to slow Internet connection in Swaledale and other reasons, but decided against the change. Finally, the group set the date for the annual Christmas drawing and Santa visit for Thursday, Dec. 14, at 1 p.m. The council will meet next on Monday, Dec. 2, at 6:30 p.m.

Talks are underway to burn the old Catholic church in Swaledale, but exactly when is unknown at this point. (Photo by Nick Pedley)

Submitted article During the week of Nov. 12-18, the Cerro Gordo County Community Foundation (CGCCF) will join more than 750 community foundations across America for the 14th Annual Community Foundation Week to tell the stories of lives changed, jobs created and communities transformed through philanthropyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partnership with private and public community leaders and organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cerro Gordo County Community Foundation works to help address the most pressing issues facing our community, including health care and education.

Community foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. The CGCCF has given grants to such groups as Habitat for Humanity of North Iowa, Francis Lauer Youth Services, The North Iowa Community Kitchen and The Music Man Square. Because this is a county organization, financial aid is distributed countywide.

Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;large and small, urban and ruralâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is advancing solutions to a wide range of social issues. The 2012 Columbus Survey found that as the nation continues through a difficult economic recovery, grants by community foundations increased by 21 percent since 2006. Launched in 1989 through a proclamation by former president George H.W. Bush, the first Community Foundation Week included a congressional briefing about the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private and nonprofit sectors to address community problems. The Cerro Gordo County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. Its vision is to be a premier philanthropic program enhancing and impacting the lives of the residents of Cerro Gordo County through donor opportunities, endowment growth and management and responsible local grant distribution. The CGCCF has awarded over $520,000 since its inception in 2006.

RW COUNCIL from page 1 ersburg and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing left, you need a plan.â&#x20AC;? The council shifted their sights to their ongoing review of city code after approving the emergency plan. The group felt little should be changed in the section they were assigned for the meeting, which was the final chunk of the codebook. The council will approve the changes theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve marked throughout the past months in one all-encompassing measure at one of their next meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take care of everything for a while, which is good,â&#x20AC;? said Karabatsos. The council finished up the meeting with discussion regarding the 2014 budget. Karabatsos reported that he hopes to have a preliminary budget to present to the group at the next meeting, but he had a few questions before he made the blueprint. Karabatsos asked if he should allocate a certain amount of money for the Rockwell Economic Development Corporation (REDC). He said the organization had fallen dormant in recent years, and wondered if a funding boost on behalf of the city could spark some activity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a new council coming in, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be busy just learning their new roles. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see it slide into oblivion,â&#x20AC;? said Karabatsos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just kind of wondering that if we allocate some money, it might give them the impetus to get something done.â&#x20AC;? Wedmore, who represents the council on the REDC along with Gary Akin, agreed with Karabatsos and felt their might be a lack of incentive within the organization. Wedmore said demolition of the vacant and rundown buildings on Main Street could be the perfect project for the group to spearhead if they received some funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three-fourths of those buildings need to come down, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my own personal opinion,â&#x20AC;? said Wedmore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want nothing more than to see them do Main Street. We all know Main Street is horrible.â&#x20AC;? Wedmore and Akin said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably around $45,000-50,000 in the REDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers. Karabatsos said he would continue to think about a stipend for the organization as he formulates next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late in all our terms, but you have to have some decision on it, because if we just sit on it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate to see it die,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like you guys to think about it, and set a seed for the next group that comes in and let it grow so we can get something done.â&#x20AC;?

The partial shutdown of the federal government revealed the ugly side of our national politics. As Americans struggle to recover from the Great Recession, federal lawmakers continue to furiously volley back and forth on how to pay for a bloated budget with money they do not have. The morale of the American people is waning, for our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders have failed to inspire confidence in the people they serve. Perhaps now is the time to remind Americans of the significance of state governments. While being heard by Congress seems like a monumental task, Americans can talk toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and be heard byâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;their state lawmakers. State governments are best suited to address local issues, and together, a chorus of state lawmakers can elicit real change in a stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction and hold sway over the federal government. The United States Constitution was designed with state governments in mind. The 10th Amendment gives power to the states and to the people and reminds all Americans they do have a seat at the table. And, while the federal government was shut down, state governments were open and fully functional. States have bills to pay, promises to keep and their constituents to serve. Significant to state governments is their relationship with their citizens. State officials live and work among their constituents, and it is much easier to hear the praises and protests of

your constituents when they are your neighbors. This type of relationship is what keeps state governments accountable and helps them more easily reflect the needs of their residents. Governing from 2,000 miles away is a difficult task, and it is no wonder people say Congress and the Administration are detached from the rest of the nation: they physically are. In Iowa and 47 other states, the law requires a balanced budget, and statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; taxation policies, education policies, environmental policies and other policies give them their own unique signatures. The beauty of state governments is not their similarities, but their differences. These differences give Americans the ability to make decisions on what is best community by community, from deciding in which state to live to which state to own a business. State governments provide choice for the American people, and those choices are what allow Americans to make decisions best suited for them. State governments are representative of the government our founders envisioned: of the people, by the people and for the people. Returning the balance of power back in favor of the states would return us closer to the model intended by the framers of the Constitution. It may also be our best opportunity to avoid the crippling impact of dysfunction in Washington D.C. This shutdown marked the 18th time the federal government has shut

down since 1976. Certainly it seems the federal government is willing to use the American people as a bargaining chip. Perhaps it is time to remind the federal government of its purpose. If government is emblematic of the people it serves, then our federal government does not hold the American people in high regard. While there will always be differences in opinion, state governments show that regular compromise can be achieved and that opposing parties can work together. It is time the federal government looked to the states as models of leadership. As always, I appreciate hearing from you. Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to contact me with your thoughts and feedback at 515-281-4618 or linda.upmeyer@legis.iowa.gov. Please enjoy a safe harvest season!

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 scratch and pull-tab games with profits going to the Fund. These instant lottery games bring in $2 million to

This past weekend was surprisingly another good one in my sports world. The Hawkeye football team became bowl-eligible after beating Purdue, and the Detroit Lions knocked off Chicago to take sole possession of first place in NFC North. The results were quite a shock to me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was positive both of my football teams were doomed to yet another season of mediocrity before the first kickoff this year. Nonetheless, Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory was even sweeter because it came against a longtime divisional rival. Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win, on the other hand, was a little less impressive. Purdue is awful this year and pretty much gave up during the second half on Saturday. However, the game was technically a rivalry match-up, which might need a little explaining for those less versed in Big Ten Conference football history. For most of their existence, Iowa and Purdue played against one another as typical league opponents. The schools arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close to one another, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually duking it out for a league championship at seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, and there just simply wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much bad blood between the two. However, all that â&#x20AC;&#x153;changedâ&#x20AC;? when Nebraska joined the conference in 2011. The now 12-team Big Ten was split up into the Leaders and Legends division, which consequently disrupted some of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional rivalries. Michigan and Ohio State were in separate divisions, and the split also cancelled other big annual match-ups like Minnesota/Wisconsin and Iowa/Wisconsin. Big Ten officials attempted to remedy the situation by allowing each team one rivalry game against an opponent from the other division.

Some were obvious â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Buckeyes and Wolverines got each other, while the Gophers and Badgers were promised a game every year as well. However, others were more head scratching. Iowa, who lost their cross-divisional rival to another locked matchup, was left out to dry and forced to look elsewhere. Thus, the Purdue/ Iowa rivalry was born, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x153;ragingâ&#x20AC;? ever since. Sportswriters and other pundits have jokingly referred to Purdue as Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most hated rival since the two teams started playing under the rivalry moniker two years ago. Their backhanded criticism of the game seems warranted, as the match-up exemplifies the money-driven mentality thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gripped the Big Ten for the past few years. The conference now stands 14 members strong after the league added three new teams dating back to 2010. These moves have created larger TV markets for the conference, in turn driving up advertising revenue and boosting profits. The new additions have also created mandatory rivalry games within the conference, and it seems Big Ten officials are forcing the issue when they announce these things. Iowa and Nebraska play for a trophy, but it has nothing to do with football. The match-up is confusingly dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heroes Game.â&#x20AC;? Both teams honor local citizens from each state whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

done something brave or extraordinary over the previous year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice tribute, but why exactly are these two teams playing for a trophy over it? Money, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. By slapping the rivalry label on the game, you can sell advertising at higher rates and trick people into thinking the match-up is more special than it actually is. This creates a false sense of exclusivity, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen throughout the conference. Maryland and Rutgers will play a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rivalryâ&#x20AC;? game each year once they join the Big Ten in 2014, which makes sense based on the schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proximity to one another. However, I wish theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d let the schools build a little conference tradition and make the game interesting before they slap the rivalry sticker on it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as important as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it out to be. As it stands now, Iowa played in five rivalry games this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iowa State, Minnesota, Purdue, Wisconsin and Nebraska. Four of those games have trophies, three of which are inconference. Only one rivalry game remains on the Hawkeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedule this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nebraska on Nov. 29. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m invested in the outcome, excuse me if my anti-Husker feelings are a little dulled come time for kickoff. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already used up most of my hate on the other four teams.

$3 million annually. In addition, Iowans who file a tax return may designate a donation to the Veterans Trust Fund through an income tax check off. As of September 30, the Fund had reached a balance of $18.1 million. Interest earned on the Veterans Trust Fund has been helping veterans and their families, particularly those with limited incomes who have immediate needs, since December 2007. The Iowa Commission of Veterans Affairs administers the Fund, authorizing requests for unemployment assistance due to service-related causes; health and dental care; medical equipment and prescription

drugs; counseling and substance abuse treatment; home and vehicle repairs; and emergency housing. To better protect our veterans from the long-term effects of brain injury, the Legislature voted this year to allow the Veterans Trust Fund to cover screening for service-related traumatic brain injury for those who do not qualify for any other government program, private health insurance or managed care organization. During the 2013 session, we also established an account within the Veterans Trust Fund to defray college expenses for children of service members who died on active duty prior to 9/11 by transferring $129,000 from the War Orphans Educational Assistance Fund. The federal Post 9/11 GI Bill covers college tuition for children of military personnel killed in action since September 11, 2001. To learn more about the Veterans

With gratitude, I would like to thank everyone who supported The Wolf Pack in our Walk to Defeat ALS. We had another successful fundraising year, raising $4,677, which placed our team eleventh out of 106 teams in Des Moines. The total amount raised by teams and corporate sponsors was $385,000. Thank you to those who support us year after year, to new donors, to all who contributed in so many ways through the plant sale, and all who see the need to support the ALS Association in the much-needed fight against Lou Gehrigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease. We do this for Tom and all those who have fought the good fight. Plans are underway for next springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plant sale, so I hope to see many of you then. Again, thank you! ~Ann Wolf and The Wolf Pack
