Pharmacy closing Clarksville honors veterans

Moads calling it quits after 33 years inBybusiness Pat Racette Longtime owners of four pharmacies in Butler County, Joan and Randy Moad, are calling it quits. The couple recently sent out letters to customers in Allison, Clarksville, Greene and Nashua Pharmacies, letting them know they no longer would be taking prescriptions after Dec. 7. The Moads sold their business to Hy-Vee, who will be getting delivery vehicles and staff to handle all the pharmacies’ customers. Hy-Vee in Waverly will be the headquarters. As far as the Moads’ employees, Hy-Vee will interview anyone interested for floral, pharmacist, pharmacy technician and sales clerk positions. “Hy-Vee is making an investment,â€? Joan said, the Clarksville pharmacist for the last 23 years. “We wanted our customers to be left in good hands, and we thought they were the best ones to do that.â€? The Moads closed down Dows Pharmacy last year, before stopping business at Dumont Pharmacy five months ago. Allison is the only location holding on to their store, changing its name to Allison Variety, Hardware and Floral and keeping the photo machine, floral part, blood pressure machine, computers and hardware. “When I closed Dumont last July, I had no designs of selling this business,â€? Randy said, Allison’s pharmacist. “But as we thought of selling Clarksville, it began to become apparent that it was going to have to be all or nothing. “After considering their [Hy-Vee] offer, rather than having me wait three or four years to hit the magic 65 [years old number], [I thought] maybe just go ahead and get it done‌We worked with them so that they are going to start a pilot project and deliver in all the towns. This was a very important part of our agreement.â€? One of the main reasons the Moads decided to sell the business was due to reimbursement rates from insurance companies not covering the costs of some prescriptions. “They [insurance companies] cut back the reimbursement rates,â€? Randy said. “So now on something the insurance companies used to charge a patient $8, they have lowered it down to $3. The difference is coming out of the pharmacy’s pocket, not the insurance company.â€? “It’s just in the last three or four years that things have seemed to snowball, and when you see horrible reimbursement rates, you wonder if it’s worth staying open to lose money basically.â€? In 2014, Randy won’t have to go back and forth between Allison and Dumont pharmacies; and the Moads won’t have to worry about insurances, employees or working weekends, as their retirement will begin. “My wife [Joan] has wanted to retire for some time, [and] my daughter graduated from North Butler and is going to Berklee College of Music in Boston [Mass.] now,â€? he said. “We think she’ll be traveling soon, so maybe we’ll be traveling around with her, be a band groupie or something.â€? The Moads’ daughter, Christine, plays bass guitar and sings with

With only 10 credit hours left before graduating, Christine took off this semester to check out the music scenes in Nashville, San Francisco and L.A. for life after college. Besides traveling with their daughter, Randy wants to take on a more active role at Wilder Park, while Joan has several projects that have been on hold. CLARKSVILLE PHARMACY The Clarksville Pharmacy opened up in 1981 where Bill Tjaden Insurance is now. Two years later, the Moads bought the building across the street (111 S. Main St.) from the retiring and well-known Huber’s Clothing Store owners. “The pharmacy area was actually the shoe department in Huber’s store,â€? Joan said. “The shelves were perfect for shoe boxes and it’s perfect for pill bottles too‌When this building came open and we first moved in, I thought this is so big, we’ll never fill it. Some 30 years later, we certainly did fill it up!â€? Joan looks back and remembers the kids then that have kids now with prescriptions. “I can’t believe I’ve been at this so long, I’m seeing generations go by,â€? she said. She also remembers Clarksville’s old downtown celebration, Images of Christmas, which is being resurrected this year. “That was always a lot of fun,â€? she said. “All the different things that the townspeople planned, and that brings back a lot of good memories with all the different things we did for that.â€? The Clarksville Pharmacy store, along with the Nashua and Greene stores, will be open until Dec.31. All the buildings are for sale, with big going-out-of-business sales to begin soon. Joan sees the soon-to-be vacant building in Clarksville as an opportunity for somebody hungry to start

a business. Jeff Kolb, Butler County Development Corporation Executive Director, said the goal now is to find a better solution with brick and mortar pharmacy presence in each of the towns. “We have already reached out to some resources to see what our options are,� Kolb said. “We need to adapt to a changing retail climate. We may be looking at options to colocate pharmacies within an existing business. Our organization will work with the Moads to market their buildings. All three are dominant storefronts in their respective downtown, and we need to work together to find new uses for these buildings. “We need to adapt and find new and creative ways to retain these vital services in our communities.�

Fire changes poll site but not schedule

COOPER MOTORS says:

After waking up to a call that Casey’s General Store was on fire last Tuesday, Clarksville Election Board Chairman Lola Clark contacted Kristen Clark about using the public library for the election site. Originally, the election site was to be at AMVETS Hall, but due to the early morning fire, Lola and Dave Clark met up with the Butler County

Election staff just before 6 a.m. to quickly pack up the equipment that had been placed the night prior and move it to the basement of the library. The rest of Clarksville poll workers arrived at 6:30 a.m. to put their stations together, with the B.C. staff leaving shortly at quarter till 7 a.m., with all equipment up and running.

The election team then was sworn in at 6:55 a.m., before Lola rang the bell to open the polls right on schedule. Early voters were already present to vote. The election board thanks library director Kristen Clark for making the meeting room available to them. All voters were offered the use of the elevator to the lower level.

Social studies teacher Chris Arians followed by taking the microphone for opening remarks, describing a quote that free is never free and about his travels to the east coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never really know how much people sacrifice for you and for your freedom until you get into a situation kind of like that where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really humbling,â&#x20AC;? Arians said of visiting Arlington National Cemetery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also on my Washington, D.C., trip I was able to visit the World War II Memorial. On the memorial was a big wall; full of gold stars the size of my hand. Each star is meant to represent 100 military deaths from WWII, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just from the United States side. There are 4,048 starsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? Veteran Habbo Fokkena was next up as the guest speaker, asking questions that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be answered but contemplated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why are we here today? Why are you sitting there? Why you are thinking about veterans?â&#x20AC;? Fokkena said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As Mr. Arians asked you, and I want to ask you again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Have you ever wondered, have you ever thought about why those people that you know when you raised your hand a short time ago [if knew someone in military] left their families? Left their jobs? Left their communities? Left to serve their countries either here or abroad?â&#x20AC;? The high school select choir sang both the Star Spangled Banner and the patriotic hymm of God Bless America in the ceremony, while the Clarksville AMVETS Color Guard presented and retrieved colors, and Mr. Sundet played TAPS on trumpet.

Science of Parenting: Time with Grandparents AMES, Iowa — Historian, mentor and friend are some of the roles that today’s grandparents play. During November, family life specialists talk about how important grandparents can be in the lives of their grandchildren in the Science of Parenting blog from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “The relationship of a grandparent and grandchild is second in emotional importance only to the parent/child relationship,” said family life specialist Donna Donald. “This month we will take a closer look at the various roles of grandparents, including grandparents raising their grandchildren.” “Today’s grandparents often have more time to spend with their grandchildren. They are eager to share their life experiences, nurture a new

What's going on?

See his long, orange body scram the opposite way I was going makes me angry. He’s gotten out before and it usually hasn’t been a problem, but on this day it’s not that simple to get him. My blood begins to boil as I take Colton into Mom and look to get Tom in one fell swoop. But every time I get near him, the slippery, elongated and vocal cat swiftly runs by me in a blur. My wife was going to work as well, as she was right behind us before Tom crept his way out the side door and to freedom. She’s now on my case to hurry up because she’s going to be late. Trying to focus on a better time and better place where happiness seeps out of me with every breath, I give up and decide maybe I need to get some of this anger out. I start to close in on Thomas yet again, as he lies on his stomach like a scaredy cat. Tom is by far our most anxious cat, which is annoys us, but he is the best cuddler too. When I get mad at him, it’s always hard to be really angry, because he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He happens to be in the garage, so I think it’s a good idea to shut the door and enclose him. However this backfires horribly, as Thomas gets more afraid and jumpy and I get more and more mad at him, feeling like I should rip off my shirt to become the Incredible Hulk. But unfortunately or fortunately, my muscles stay puny and I’m yelling at Tom like he is a human. Somehow I get my hand on him, but he makes a mad dash for it and hides under my car in the front, where I have no chance to get him. I’ve now come undone, but my wife saves the day by coming outside with treats and grabbing up Tommy as he munches them. Though I feel like an idiot for not thinking of it and instead locking us in the garage to get him, I’m just happy he’s in. Who knows, maybe I needed to get that anger out? Hopefully Tommy didn’t take offense, and if he did, I did apologize to him that night when I got home and pet him good and told him I loved him.

Tuesdays, bloody Tuesdays Tuesdays are always an enigma to me. They likely should be the most boring day of the week, but rarely is that the case for me anymore. Last Tuesday, let’s just say it was one of those Tuesdays that I wished could’ve gone better. At 4 a.m., my son jumps into bed and says, “I want to get up, Daddy. Daddy, I want to get up.” Who knows how long he asked me that question, as eventually I could ignore him no longer and pulled my bones together to make him something for breakfast. Then around 6:30 a.m., I get a text message that Casey’s General Store caught on fire. Having trouble believing this, I want to go find out what’s going on, but I have to go through the morning routine before I can get there. A little overwhelmed by the start of the day’s news, knowing it’s deadline day, chinks in my armor begin to show. I’m supposed to have all my assignments in, but obviously for such a disaster changes have to be made. My family’s orange cat, Tom aka Thomas, somehow sneaks out the door behind me as I walked out the door to drop Colton off and head to Clarksville to see what is going on with Casey’s.

Family Caregivers: ‘Now More Than Ever’ AMES, Iowa — Adding the role of caregiver to an already full life can be overwhelming. With about 90 million family caregivers in the United States, National Family Caregivers Month is recognizing the need for their service with the theme “now more than ever.” “The physical, emotional and financial stress can make it difficult to appreciate the rewards of caring for a loved one,” said Donna Donald, a family life specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “As the number of family caregivers continues to grow, ‘now more than ever’ it is important to recognize the vital role family caregivers play and find support and resources to help them thrive, not just survive.” Two out of five adults in the U.S. are family caregivers and 39 percent of all adult Americans are caring for a sick or disabled loved one, according to the Caregiver Action Network. The network coordinates National Family Caregivers Month every November as a time to thank, support, educate and empower family caregivers. “Caregiving takes many forms. A caregiver may help a friend or relative with housekeeping, grocery shopping or personal care,” Donald said. “Maybe you drive your loved one to doctor appointments or social activities at a senior center. Maybe your loved one lives with you or you help him or her with financial, legal or insurance issues. If you do one or more of these, you are a caregiver.” Extension and Outreach Resources for Caregivers Caregivers who thrive, rather than just survive, understand that by taking care of themselves, they are bet-

ter able to provide the care that their loved ones need, Donald said. Family caregivers can get resources online from eXtension, America’s research-based learning network. Go to http://www.extension.org/ family_caregiving for information, webinars and “ask an expert” questions and answers related to many aspects of family caregiving. Family caregivers also may want to seek out a Powerful Tools for Caregivers class from ISU Extension and Outreach, Donald said. These classes, held over a period of six weeks, are designed to provide family caregivers with skills they need to take care of themselves. “The Powerful Tools classes help caregivers find balance in their lives. You’ll learn ways to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate your feelings and increase your ability to make tough decisions,” Donald said. For information about upcoming classes, contact any ISU Extension and Outreach county office or check the Powerful Tools for Caregivers website, http://www.extension.iastate.edu/humansciences/ptc-tools.

Huh? I don’t know about you, but I find health insurance to be extremely frustrating! When I was teaching, I never really gave it a lot of thought; I’d get sick and go to the doctor, pay my co-pay and insurance paid the rest. As a teacher, it was an added benefit and we could choose Option A (low premium, high deductible) or Option B (high premium, low deductible). Since I wasn’t paying, I usually took Option B. Now that I‘m in a job with no health care benefits, I am fast learning the ins and outs of insurance. I have my own plan and have had it for 3 years and have never paid the same premium amount two times in a row. There’s ALWAYS a “slight adjustment” made. With all the uproar about Obamacare lately, I’ve become even more confused. People are being told they will no longer be able to remain on their plans because there’s not enough coverage provided. Really? If my era is close to retirement, do they really need an obstetrics and pediatrics option? Yet, current plans will no longer be available because they don’t have them! So, we have to pay for options we will probably never need? We can’t select the plan we’ve always had? Where can I go for answers to these tough health questions? Glad you asked! ISUEO evidently saw the writing on the wall months

ago and felt people would be needing access to information that was fair and impartial. They put together and piloted an information meeting called “Smart Choice Health Insurance” and it is being carried out all over Iowa. The workshops will be covering: 1) Key health insurance terms and concepts 2) Thinking about YOUR health care needs 3) Comparing policies 4) The new Health Insurance Marketplace 5) Premium Tax Credits and other cost reductions The meetings are free to all participants and all ages are welcome. Registrations are required so call the Butler County Extension & Outreach Office today to sign up. There will be 3 meetings in Butler County in the next few weeks: Monday, Nov 18, 6-8 pm, Butler County Extension Office Monday, Dec 2, 3-5 pm, Parkersburg Public Library Monday, Dec 2, 6-8 pm, Greene Public Library All meetings will be presented by Brenda Schmitt, ISUEO Family Finance Specialist. If you want answers to your health care questions, call the Butler County Extension Office at 319/267-2707 and register today!

Tips for Holiday Shopping As holiday shopping becomes a 24hour, seven day a week proposition for more and more retailers, consumers need to be on guard 24/7 when shopping for holiday gifts online, by phone or by mail, or through local brick and mortar stores. Ads & Sales • Read store ads carefully. Is the store offering sale items at a limited quantity? Can you get a rain check if it’s an out-of-stock sale item? • Take the ad with you when you go shopping to make sure you find the right item at the price advertised. • Focus on bottom-line prices, not discounts. Discount claims may not reflect real savings, if the seller inflated the original price of an item and then discounted it to make the “discount price” appear as a bargain. The Seller • Buy from a seller you trust. Whether the seller is down the street or across the country, know who you’re buying from. Be wary of online retailers that don’t disclose contact information, including a phone number and physical address. • Understand the seller’s return and refund policies. How long do you have to return the item? Will you get a full refund, store credit, or nothing? Is there a restocking fee? Do you need a receipt and the product packaging? If the seller ships an item that you later decide to return, who pays for shipping? • If you’re making an online purchase, make sure it’s a secure website. Secure sites use an “https“ prefix in their Web address. The “s” stands for secure, which means the site is not secure without it! Don’t email financial information, such as credit card or bank account numbers. • If ordering online or by phone, use a credit card because credit cards generally offer consumers better protections in cases of fraud or disputes. Only give credit card numbers to sellers you know and you called. And review your monthly statements to ensure the charges are correct.

Avoid using a debit card, because debit transactions draw directly from your bank account. Don’t wire money or send cash. • If it’s a mail or phone order, the merchant is required to ship the item within 30 days of the order, unless the seller clearly discloses a longer wait in advertisements or catalog. If the merchant cannot meet the 30day deadline, the seller must disclose it to the customer and offer the option of a cancellation and full refund. • If you’re buying through a layaway, be sure you understand the policies, including any additional fees or restrictions, and cancellation policies. Warranties & Extended Warranties • How long does the seller warranty the product? Does a seller’s warranty go beyond the manufacturer’s warranty? • Think carefully about extended warranties and service agreements. Be sure to understand the terms, including what is and is not covered. Extended warranties often mean add-on profits for sellers, but they can also offer peace of mind for the buyer and convenience if the product breaks during the warranty period. Gift Cards • Understand the terms. Does the merchant charge a gift card purchase fee? Does the merchant charge an inactivity fee (which is allowed after 12 months of inactivity)? • The card must clearly disclose the expiration date, and fees must be clearly disclosed on the card or its packaging. Gift cards must be good for five years from the purchase date, or from the last date any additional money was loaded onto the card. • Urge the recipient to use the card sooner rather than later to avoid loss, theft, and future inactivity fees. And keep your receipts, or give the recipient a receipt in case of problems down the road.

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 nation’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 to—and be heard by—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 state’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 de-

tached from the rest of the nation: they physically are. In Iowa and 47 other states, the law requires a balanced budget, and states’ 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.

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 $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.

Health Care Rollout is Short on Transparency By Chuck Grassley It’s hard to believe healthcare.gov has been online more than a month already. The website wasn’t ready for primetime when it was launched. Technical experts say there are serious design problems. The Obama Administration has suggested people call instead of going online, but that doesn’t help because enrolling in the new health care program by phone requires the same computer infrastructure that’s causing problems for online visitors. When people do manage to register themselves on healthcare.gov, it’s not clear insurance companies are able to take the next step and enroll the registrants in health care coverage. News reports show problems with the individual information insurers use to enroll the individuals in a health care plan. Inaccurate or corrupted data would interfere with successful enrollment. That has implications for when the Administration should enforce the individual mandate requiring enrollment. It would be unfair to penalize people for not having health insurance when technical problems have impeded their enrollment. Enrollment numbers continue to be extremely hard to come by. That’s worrisome. Government programs should be transparent because

transparency brings accountability for the significant taxpayer dollars and resources at stake. Performing our constitutional responsibility of oversight of the executive branch of government, a fellow senator and I are seeking information on our own. We asked four major health insurers for their healthcare.gov enrollment numbers, and we sought contracts and cost information from the companies that built the flawed healthcare.gov. This week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will testify before the Finance Committee, with jurisdiction over much of the new health care program. She should expect to deliver concrete facts on the new health care program’s troubled rollout and provisions that are affecting millions of Americans, from cancellation of their current insurance to reductions in their work hours related to the new law. The President achieved what he sees as the signature accomplishment of his tenure. He and his Administration are responsible for every aspect of that signature accomplishment, including what doesn’t work and what undermines the previously successful parts of the health care system.

The Way It Was

by Dave Clark

Due to a rather busy schedule this week Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone to my past interesting e-mails for this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column, parts of which may have shown up before from time to time. However Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure you will see that they are well worth repeating. Or maybe not, anyway itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best I can do this week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what you can find on the internet! In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear weapons combined. Ninety percent of the taxi drivers in New York City are recently arrived immigrants. Mosquito repellents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensors so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there. Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least 6 feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush. The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as substitute for blood plasma. No piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times. Try it! Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes. You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching television. Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty years of age or older. Butterflies taste with their feet. The first product to have a bar code was Wrigleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gum. A Boeing 747s wingspan is longer than the Wright brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first flight. American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating 1 olive from each salad served in first-class. Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning. Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin. Barbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. Michael Jordan makes more money from Nike annually than all of the Nike factory workers in Malaysia combined. Marilyn Monroe had six toes. All US Presidents have worn glasses. Some just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like being seen wearing them in public. Pearls melt in vinegar. The three most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro, Coca Cola, and Budweiser, in that order. The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer. A duckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quack doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t echo and no one knows why. The reason firehouses have circular stairways is from the days when the engines were pulled by horses. The horses were stabled on the ground floor and figured out how to walk up straight staircases.

The dot over the letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;iâ&#x20AC;? is called a tittle. A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top. A 2 X 4 is really 1-1/2 by 3-1/2. During the chariot scene in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ben Hur,â&#x20AC;? a small red car can be seen in the distance. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily! Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War II were made of wood. The number of possible ways of playing the first four moves per side in a game of chess is 318,979,564,000. There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with orange, purple and silver. The name Wendy was made up for the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan.â&#x20AC;? There was never a recorded Wendy before. The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo. Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to s-l-o-w film down so you could see his moves. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opposite of the norm. The first CD pressed in the US was Bruce Springsteenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Born in the USA.â&#x20AC;? The original name for butterfly was flutterby. The phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;rule of thumbâ&#x20AC;? is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb. The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was Victrola, so they called themselves Motorola. Roses may be red, but violets are indeed violet. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand. GOOD FACT TO REMEMBER?? Celery has negative calories. It takes more calories to eat a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying. An old law in Bellingham, Washington, made it illegal for a woman to take more than 3 steps backwards while dancing. ?? The Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book most often stolen from Public Libraries. Bats always turn left when exiting a cave!!

Home Country by Slim Randles My first wife came from a ranching family way back up in the hills and had a cousin, Ted, who was a hounddog man. I talked my way into hunting with him, of course. All went well until we were on the way home, when a badger ran across the road and dove into a large culvert pipe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh wow!â&#x20AC;? Ted yelled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get him!â&#x20AC;? He released most of the hounds and they plugged the culvert pipe with bawling insults. In the dead center of the pipe was a snarling badger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gotta smoke him outta there,â&#x20AC;? Ted said, lighting a cigar and handing it to me.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now crawl in there and smoke that sucker out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You sure?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many badgers you hunted?â&#x20AC;? So I crawled into the pipe with the cigar in my mouth, puffing away, and the badger actually backed up a few steps. Then Ted released his old dog from the car. He screamed in the other end of the pipe and grabbed that badger in the butt. The record for backing out of a culvert pipe with a glowing cigar in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth was shattered. My wife told me that, as a member of the family, I could hunt with Ted all the time. After the divorce....

Grassley comments on National Adoption Month Q: Why is National Adoption Month observed in November? A: During this season of thanksgiving, millions of American households open their homes to friends and family from near and far. We come together to celebrate cherished traditions that have been handed down for generations. Hospitality, hearth and harvest come to mind as families gather at the table and give thanks. As Americans make plans for the holiday feast, we can quibble about giblets in the gravy or whether to roast, deep fry or brine the turkey. Each family enjoys its own unique traditions and family favorites on the Thanksgiving menu. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all said and done, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really no place like home. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially fitting to commemorate National Adoption Month in November. Tens of thousands of foster children in America long to have a permanent place setting at their very own familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table on Thanksgiving Day and every other day of the year. Last year, nearly 400,000 children lived in the U.S. foster care system. Of those, nearly 102,000awaited adoption. More than 26,000 aged out of the system before ever securing a permanent place to call home. Since 1990, National Adoption Month has helped to raise awareness for children awaiting adoption and appreciation for those who have answered the call to serve as foster or adoptive parents. So many of us look forward to celebrating the homecoming of friends and family on Thanksgiving Day. Just consider the hope-filled anticipation of a child longing to be welcomed home for good to a forever family. Q: What can be done to help more children awaiting adoption to find a permanent, loving home? A: As co-founder and co-chair of the bipartisan Senate Caucus on Foster Youth, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked to raise public awareness and educate policymakers about the challenges facing foster youth, especially those who age out of the system with no long-term support structure in place. Children and adolescents need stability, certainty and constancy in their lives. A permanent, loving home provides the most nurturing foundation to help youth reach their fullest potential in society. We should acknowledge foster youth throughout the year, not just November, and give thanks to parents who heed the call to adopt a child. And, we can always do more to ensure that children who await adoption get the assistance they need, including support to stay in school and sustain their education. Earlier this year, I introduced the Foster Youth Stamp Act of 2013 that would provide for the issuance and sale of a postal stamp by the U.S. Postal Service. Revenue generated from the stamp would support state-based programs, including the Adoption Opportunities Program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which seeks permanent outcomes for foster care youth through adoption, guardianship or kinship care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the State Court Improvement Program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which seeks to improve legal representation for youth and addresses caseloads and the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in achieving safe, stable, per-

manent homes for children in foster care. Q: What other legislative provisions have you championed to promote adoption? A: As an outspoken advocate for â&#x20AC;&#x153;life, liberty and the pursuit of happinessâ&#x20AC;? at the policymaking tables in Washington, I believe these founding principles apply especially to vulnerable children in our society. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked with Iowa families, foster youth, child welfare advocates, court representatives and social workers to help identify financial, legal and bureaucratic roadblocks that make it difficult for kids to find a permanent, loving home through adoption, guardianship or reunification with their birth family. Through congressional hearings and legislation, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked to raise awareness about the stability that adoption can bring to a child in need of a loving home as well as the public good adoption brings to society. â&#x20AC;˘ In 1997, I worked to advance the Adoption and Safe Families Act that is credited with doubling adoptions from foster care in many states. â&#x20AC;˘ As then-chairman of the taxwriting Senate Finance Committee, I secured an expansion of federal tax credit assistance in the 2001 tax law that increased qualified expenses for adoption from $5,000 to $10,000. Today the tax credit is indexed for inflation and was made a permanent provision of the federal tax code earlier this year. Adoptive parents this year may apply $12,970 in qualified adoption expenses to their 2013 federal tax return. â&#x20AC;˘ In 2006, congressional hearings in the Senate Finance Committee led to the passage of the Child and Family Services Improvement Act that improved programs designed to help troubled families and increased caseworker visits for foster care youth. â&#x20AC;˘ In 2008, I authored the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions law which increased federal incentives for states to move children from foster care to adoptive homes; made it easier for children to be adopted by relatives; made children with special needs eligible for federal adoption assistance; and, established new educational opportunities for youth who age out of foster care at age 18. Q: What is National Adoption Day? A: Since 2000, 44,500 families have finalized adoptions on National Adoption Day. Organizers single out the Saturday before Thanksgiving to raise public awareness and honor adoptive families across the country. As Iowans count our blessings and celebrate family on Thanksgiving Day, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remember the children in our communities who dream to find a family to call their own once and for all. Have you, a family member, friend or neighbor considered adoption? On behalf of the thousands of foster children whose single-most important wish upon the turkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishbone would be to take a seat at their very own familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thanksgiving table, I encourage you to prayerfully consider the call if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a position to do so.

Farm and Food Bill Negotiations Begin The conference committee on the farm and food bill started in earnest last week. Provisions I authored to establish a farm payment cap of $250,000 and close loopholes used by non-farmers to game the system were included in both the Senate and House bills. Congressman Jeff Fortenberry sponsored the provisions in the House bill. Our efforts were recently given a boost when the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report outlining many of the current shortcomings of the eligibility rules for farm programs. The report shows that there is still far too much subterfuge of the actively engaged law. For instance, taxpayers are footing the bill for farm payments to 11 active managers of one farm who

FARM/TIMBER LAND SALE BUTLER COUNTY, IOWA Section 13, Beaver Township

supposedly provide significant management experience, yet perform no labor. The report also says that the legislative language in the Senateand House-passed farm bills would be an appropriate fix to the agency’s findings. The reform in the bills ends some of the most egregious abuses of the farm program and makes sure that the farm program payments are going to those who need them most, and it saves money. We try to make sure that 22 people no longer get farm payments through a single farm entity using loopholes, (especially when 16 of those 22 members aren’t doing any labor, as the GAO report pointed out), and we aim to prevent 70 percent of the farm payments from going to the top 10 percent of farms by size.

I’ve made clear that the farm payment provisions should have a “Do Not Touch” stamp applied to them. The provisions are nearly identical in the two bills and should not be up for negotiation. Still, some members of the conference committee have already made clear of their intention to remove the reforms. By removing the payment limits and the provisions to close loopholes, these members are only making the safety net more susceptible to criticism and vulnerable to elimination. The safety net is important to a safe and affordable food supply for the country, and it would be shortsighted to allow such a parochial mindset to undermine an important and necessary policy.
