Garner community gathers together

Volunteers serve Thanksgiving dinner â&#x20AC;&#x153;with all the trimmingsâ&#x20AC;? the 2013 Garner Community Thanksgiving, Nov. 28.

Supervisors adopt county â&#x20AC;&#x153;social hostâ&#x20AC;? ordinance By Rebecca Peter Hancock County will have a county social host ordinance that sets out civil penalties for persons who knowingly allow or permit consumption of alcohol by minors at social gatherings. The second and final reading of the ordinance was held Monday and generated little discussion at the Dec. 2 meeting. Once again, the vote was 2-1 with Supervisors Jerry Tlach and Ted Hall in favor and Sis Greiman against. The Hancock County ordinance would provide a civil penalty of $750 for a first time violation. Second and subsequent offenses carry a penalty of $1,000. The county may also seek reimbursement for enforcement services

by emergency responders related to the event, gathering or party. The ordinance also contains exceptions: alcohol being served in restaurants, or used in religious observances, etc. The county-wide social host ordinance was originally proposed by representatives of the Garner Asset Project in October. GAP representative said county-wide social host ordinances are already in place 21 counties. Last week Supervisor Sis Greiman said she received emails from persons who were concerned about how the ordinance could potentially be an invasion of their home. Greiman also had concerns when there are already laws

governing underage drinking and providing alcohol to minors. ATV Ordinance Supervisors approved the first reading of an ordinance governing driving all-terrain-vehicles (ATV) on county roads. The hearing, a continuance of one started last week, was attended by a number of area ATV owners who asked that the board amend to ordinance to raise speed limit driving ATVs from 35 mph to the posted speed limit. The group and supervisors hoped common sense will be used by ATV drivers. Driver must carry and Iowa Driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, insurance and registration. Hancock County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy

Ray Penning said accidents involving ATVs peaked between 206-2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting more safety features on them,â&#x20AC;? Penning said. Supervisor Jerry Talch didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see raising the speed limit to the post limit as a big issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to slow down traffic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we go with the 35 miles per hour, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be back in here in a year or two,â&#x20AC;? he said. The board unanimously passed the amended ordinance setting the speed limit for ATV drivers at the posted limit or as reasonable or proper under each circumstances. The second reading of the amended ATV ordinance will be held 9:15 a.m. Monday, Dec. 9.

Garner Council Approves Purchase of Golf Courses By Rebecca Peter GARNER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Garner City Council unanimously approved the purchase of Garner Golf and Country Club for $171,000, Nov. 26. No objections or comments were heard during a public hear on the purchase, Nov. 26. The purchase price is the payoff of outstanding debt on the facility. The City of Garner also agreed to pay off all closing costs. The purchase will be financed through local option sales tax revenue. The city currently has about $361,000 in that fund. Final action on the operating agreement with the Garner Course Foundation Inc. on Dec. 10. The city is expected to take possession on Jan. 2, 2,014. Other action by the council concerning the golf course property included approved an internal loan from local options sales tax to set up $38,500 capital reserve fund for capital purchases for the golf course. The loan will be repaid to the Tax Increment Fund (TIF) out of future incremental property tax

Are libraries relevant? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whyâ&#x20AC;Ś By Rebecca Peter Are libraries obsolete? The Garner City Council recently listened to a presentation on why public libraries are still relevant for the 21st Century. Don Furman, president of the Garner Public Library Board of Trustees, said he was responding questions he has heard asked in the community: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are new libraries really needed in this day and age? With the internet and ereaders, will people still have need for libraries in 5 or 10 years? Why should Garner spend money on a new library building?â&#x20AC;? The Garner Public Library Board is developing plans for the renovation and expansion of the current 1977 facility. The library board received a remodeling proposal from OPN Architects in 2012, however budgeting concerns arose when preliminary estimates came in over the anticipated budget. The city council has given the library board and library building committee two options: Option 1. The council will commit $1,071,650 to the project provided a referendum vote passes for borrowing $700,000. Option 2. The council will commit $771,650 without a referendum vote and borrow $400,000. The balance of the money needed for the project will have to come from Library Foundation, grants, and donations from a capital fund raising campaign. Furman said his initial reaction to the question of whether or not libraries will be obsolete in the future was a mixture of shock and outrage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But with further thought, I realized that the fact that the question had been raised represents a failure of the person asking it to understand what libraries are all about. And

$

14

that is a failure, in part, of the Garner Library Board.â&#x20AC;? Libraries have evolved from being just â&#x20AC;&#x153;a temple of booksâ&#x20AC;? to having multiple functions. In addition to books (the paper versions), the Garner library offers e-reader lending services. With the advent of the Internet, libraries still act as â&#x20AC;&#x153;informational clearing houseâ&#x20AC;? for people doing research. Furman said library patronage in Garner and across America is up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means more people are walking through the doors.â&#x20AC;? However, circulation numbers (items checked out) are slightly down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means people are not coming in for the traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;old-timeâ&#x20AC;? reasons,â&#x20AC;? he said. He noted libraries of tomorrow will serve the following functions: 1. They will still have books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may not have as many books in 20 years and the format and category distribution of the books may change. But society will still have a need for a physical space where some books can be collected.â&#x20AC;? 2. They will offer ready access to information for those who either cannot afford it, or those who may have trouble filtering it. With many businesses selling information the library is a place where information will remain free of charge. People use the library to get access to the internet to find work, apply

for college, secure government benefit, etc. 3. Libraries will act as a resource for learning. Literacy skills, future technology skills, job searches and training, and governmental program information will all take place at the local library 4. Libraries will be an oasis from stressful, fast-paced lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will provide the public with a place they can relax, get away from a few of their worries, and either lose themselves in a book, magazine, newspaper, or socialize with friends or strangers in a warm, nurturing environment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are at a critical point in the future of the Garner library,â&#x20AC;? Furman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not the time to sit quietly and hope or assume things will work out. The citizens of Garner should understand why a new library is important for the future of our city.â&#x20AC;? Furman said the library board needs to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;leading the chargeâ&#x20AC;? but the city council needs to be ready as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, will we need libraries in the future?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes. Because libraries always have evolved, and will continue to do so. They are much more than a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;temple of books.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They will be a structure for education, a resource to filter information, and a place for community to gather.â&#x20AC;?

Pursue higher education Dear editor, I graduated from Garner-Hayfield Ventura last spring and I am currently a student at Iowa State University. I was assigned to write to the local newspaper about my experiences at college and why I decided to pursue a higher education. I am a freshman so I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been in college long, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already decided to change my major. So I think it would be a good idea for students in high school planning to go to college to keep an open

mind. I think this goes for all areas of college including the activities they get involved in. Iowa State has so many different ways to get involved, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to try a variety of things. I encourage all high school students to pursue a higher education because of all the opportunities it will bring later in life. Sincerely, Cassidy Mace

In the recent past, the legislature had a nasty habit of spending too much of your money. When I say too much, I mean that they spent more than there was in revenue. That is not sustainable and over the last several years, we have kicked that habit. Responsible budget reforms combined with a strong economy have given us not only enough to pay the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bills but also left some over. To me, when we have met the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obligations, any money left over is simply an over-collection of taxes. The question becomes what to do with this over-collection. Some would like it built right into the budget and used to permanently grow government. It may work when the economy is strong, but it leads to deep cuts and unfulfilled obligations when it weakens. This is how the state got itself in trouble in the past. We took a very balanced approach with that over-collection this year. We used some of the over-collection to pay off debt. We used some of it to invest in infrastructure. We also made good on our promise to send some of it back to the taxpayers it came from. The foundation for our ability to send money back to taxpayers

was established in 2011 when Iowa House Republicans pushed to create the Taxpayer Trust Fund. This fund captures revenue left over after the budget process is completed and protects it to be returned to the taxpayers. The Taxpayer Trust Fund is aimed at responsibly taking one-time money off the table so that it is not used to grow government in the good years which makes us unable to handle the tough years. I am proud that the vision we had in 2011 is now coming to fruition. The Taxpayer Trust Fund will give individual Iowa taxpayers $120 million in tax credits that can easily be claimed when they file their 2013 state tax return. This is money that will be pumped directly into our economy instead of the state governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. The Taxpayer Trust Fund is proving to be a wonderful way to provide relief for hardworking Iowa families while also strengthening the fiscal health of our state. 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.

By Wayne Kronneman West Hancock Superintendent The trailer court or new bus barn location renovation is moving along slowly. There have been some unexpected issues that have come up that have slowed the process a little. The final purchase process was long and painful. It takes a while to work through all the legal issues for a school district. We also had to remove asbestos that was found in the roofs of most of the trailers. We are now in the process of demoing the trailers. We are working with a group to do this. This was the alternative to paying to get it done which would have been very costly. The staff has been busy for four years now revamping our curriculum based on the changes passed on by the federal and state governments though

by State Senator Tod Bowman, Transportation Committee chair, Iowa Senate Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads and bridges are in bad shape. That can make businesses hesitant to locate or expand here, and hinders efforts to grow our economy and create more good jobs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem that is getting worse because Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Use Fund isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bringing in enough money to pay for the mounting work that needs to be done. Just to cover our most critical projects, we need an extra $215 million a year. It costs a lot to maintain 114,000 miles of roads and 25,000 bridges. Other states have faced similar problems and have found solutions. Iowa can too. Currently, Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads and bridges are paid for with a per-gallon tax on fuel and vehicle registration fees. Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fuel tax is low compared to surrounding states. That sounds good, but it means visitors to Iowa kick in less to fix our roads than we pay them when traveling in their states. Last summer, I drove to Chicago and kept close track of my travel expenses. The trip cost me almost a dime per mile in Illinois fuel taxes and tolls. If an Illinois resident drove through Iowa in a similar car, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pay less than a penny a mile to use our roads. But our low gas tax isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the whole story. Raising the per-gallon tax on fuel by a penny would generate an additional $20 million a year. However, construction costs continue to increase dramatically, and new cars travel farther on less fuel. Over time, a per-gallon tax on fuel provides fewer dollars to pay for projects that get

Common Core and Iowa Core respectively. We have yet to come to a final conclusion on whether or not is it the right change. I do know however it has made us take a close look at what and how we are teaching your students on a daily basis. You probably will notice students being taught with different strategies than you are used to. You will also notice that they are being taught and learning things at an earlier age than you. We have found some very good things in the Iowa Core. We have also found some things that we are questioning along with other districts across the state. We will continue to work through this process and do the best we can to provide your child a great education here at West Hancock. No matter what and how we are teaching it means nothing unless kids

are in school. West Hancock sees a high absentee rate just as others schools do in Iowa. It is due partly because of Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weak attendance laws. I encourage you to make sure your kids are in school every day that they can be. Even if they get good grades on their assignments and assessments doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they are learning everything they can. The fact is that everything that is taught is not assessed. We do not want students here if they have a fever or have not been fever free for 24 hours without the aid from medicine, however, we see too much absenteeism for sleeping in, missing the bus, truancy, and other things that can be avoided. When students get behind because of absenteeism it can make it overwhelming to get caught up and also maintain the current workload.

more expensive each year. While we continue to make the Iowa Department of Transportation more efficient, that alone wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve our problems. In rural areas, counties have resorted to borrowing moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and paying interestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to maintain roads and bridges. Not only are we shelling out more to pay for our roads this way, the buck gets passed on to property tax payers rather than road users. The DOT recently floated several ideas for raising more road funds over the long term. You can see all of them here:http://tinyurl.com/DOTfunds-13. Their ideas include getting rid of Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s per-gallon tax on fuel and replacing it with a sales tax on fuel. The department also proposes increasing registration fees on vehicle purchases from 5 to 6 percent. That would make it comparable to the sales tax, which Iowans do not pay on vehicle purchases. The idea of turning our major thoroughfares into toll roads to bring in lots of moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Illinois doesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is complicated and expensive to administer. Oregon plans to charge vehicles based on the miles they travel. It appears to be a fair approach, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet ready for prime time. Right now, Iowa has the largest budget surplus in state history. It could help knock out some major road projects, but that approach does not address the root of the funding

problem. What happens in the long term when the surplus is gone? As chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, I want to provide leadership for growing our economy, creating good jobs throughout the state, and solving the problems Iowa faces when it comes to our roads. What do you think? Please share your thoughts with me by writing to tod.bowman@legis.iowa.gov. I also encourage you to contact your state legislators and Governor Branstad. They work for you, and the input you give them makes a big difference in what happens at the Statehouse and on Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads.

QUESTION: I want to look forward to the holidays but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really dreading all the work that comes with it; please help me put the joy back in the season. ANSWER by: Hancock County Health System. Welcome to the holiday season that whirlwind of gift-giving holidays, marketing blitzes, holiday parties and activities galore! While this season is meant to bring feelings of love and cheer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the harbinger of holiday stress. More than 80% of us find the holiday season to be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;somewhatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;veryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stressful so how do we overcome these feelings. â&#x20AC;˘ Set Your Priorities - Before you get overwhelmed by too many activities, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to decide what traditions offer the most positive impact and eliminate superfluous activities. For example, if you usually become overwhelmed by a flurry of baking, caroling, shopping, sending cards, visiting relatives and other activities that leave you exhausted by January, you may want to examine your priorities, pick a few favorite activities and really enjoy them,

The North Iowa Choral Society is proud to present its 20th Annual Winter Concert â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gloriaâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m. in the North Iowa Community Auditorium under the direction of Linda Ferjak. This year the ensemble is excited to feature acclaimed British composer John Rutterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended work, Gloria, which is in three movements with brass and percussion instrumentation. Rutterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gloria was a milestone in his career and is an evergreen favorite with choirs worldwide for its freshness, drama, and sheer beauty. Deservedly, it remains one of John Rutterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular works. Musical selections also include I Wonder as I Wander (Rutter), Deck the Hall (Rutter), Sure on This Shining Night (Lauridsen), In Dulci Jubilo (Pearsall/Walker), Throw the Yule Log

Weather radios available to public from EMA The Winnebago and Hancock County Emergency Management Agency is offering, for sale, N.O.A.A. weather radios. This project has been funded through a grant from the Hanson Foundation and hopes to place weather radios in as many homes as possible. Quite often there is a misunderstanding regarding the need for a weather radio versus an outdoor warning siren. The sirens located throughout our cities are for purposes of those people who are outdoors and are sounded for them to take shelter in a suitable structure. The NOAA weather radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose is to alert people inside of an impending or possible threat. The Midland Weather Radio receivers will be sold for $27 each. The regular retail price for these radios is usually around $40. Purchases can be made by either cash or check, credit cards are not accepted. People interested can either purchase the radios and program them in their home or they can have them programmed at the time of sale. These radios come equipped with S.A.M.E technology (Specific Area Message Encoding) that allows the user to define the geographic locations of the alerts

they are interested receiving as well as the types of alerts they receive. This will be an ongoing project for the next 3 to 5 years. You can expect to see these radios for sale at various community events in both Winnebago and Hancock County. They can be purchased at any time of the year by contacting Andy Buffington at either 641-923-2702, 641-585-1942 or 641843-8202. The receivers will also be available to low-income households at a reduced rate or free, depending on income. If you have any questions regarding eligibility you can contact Andy Buffington at any of the numbers above.

Naaman Healed of Leprosy Part I 2 Kings 5:1-19a Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the Lord had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy. Now bands of raiders from Aram had gone out and had taken captive a young girl from Israel, and she served Naamanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife. She said to her mistress, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.â&#x20AC;? Naaman went to his master and told him what the girl from Israel had said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;By all means, go,â&#x20AC;? the king of Aram replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will send a letter to the king of Israel.â&#x20AC;? So Naaman left, taking with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold and ten sets of clothing. The letter that he took to the king of Israel read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this letter I am sending my servant Naaman to you so that you may cure him of his leprosy.â&#x20AC;? As soon as the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his robes and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life? Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy? See how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me!â&#x20AC;? When Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his robes, he sent him this message: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why

have you torn your robes? Have the man come to me and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel.â&#x20AC;? So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elishaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.â&#x20AC;? But Naaman went away angry and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I wash in them and be cleansed?â&#x20AC;? So he turned

and went off in a rage. Naamanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s servants went to him and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wash and be cleansedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;!â&#x20AC;? So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy. Then Naaman and all his attendants went back to the man of God. He stood before him and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant.â&#x20AC;? The prophet answered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As surely as

Goodell United Methodist unearths time capsule

,=DOP<MD@N

GOODELL - It was a time of fellowship and reminiscing. The contents of a time capsule buried 25 years ago were revealed during the annual soup supper and bake sale at the Goodell United Methodist Church on Saturday, Nov. 23. The plastic container that served as the capsule was buried underneath the church bell tower, on Oct. 16, 1988, as part of the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1988 centennial celebration. In it were letters written by the members of the congregation (young and old) in 1988 who shared their hopes and wishes for future. Letters were returned during the supper to as many of the original writers as possible. Also placed inside the capsule were various photographs, a Centennial calendar for the City of Goodell dated 1884-1984, the of Oct. 16, 1988 Des Moines Register, and Oct. 13, 1988, Belmond Independent and Reminder, a plat of Avery Township, a program for the church centennial service and other documents. Amy Ann Jensen and Joe Perez hold the letters they wrote as 8-year-old Sunday school children that were among the many letters, photos and other memorabilia placed in a time capsule by the congregation of the Goodell United Methodist Church in 1988. Pastor Michael Schafer (center) did the honors of opening the capsule. (Leader photo by Rebecca Peter)

Ring in the Bells at Algona

ALGONA - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ring the Bells ~ Tell the Newsâ&#x20AC;? is the title of the Algona First Presbyterian Church Choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Carols and Candlelight Christmas musical program which will be shared on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 8, at 3 p.m .at the church located at 101 North Main Street in Algona. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As in past years the choir will be presenting, through the spoken word, choral and instrumental music, the reason for this glorious season, the birth of

our Lord and Savior,â&#x20AC;? said Pastor Walt Reemtsma, choir director and accompanist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to sharing many of our old familiar carols, some with a new twist, we will be sharing a number of newly released anthems that the choir has really enjoyed preparing for this musical presentation,â&#x20AC;? added Reemtsma. For the first time, a series of dramatic vignettes will be used to support the choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selections.

LIBRARY from page 4 tips for displaying, gifting, boxing and shipping your precious pops and spread lots of smiles this holiday season. Lewis, Chad; The Van Meter Visitor For several nights in 1903, the small town of Van Meter, Iowa was terrorized by a giant bat-like creature that emerged from an old abandoned mine. The identity of this mysterious visitor was never discovered. Over 100 years later, three researchers set out to Van Meter to shine a light on this amazingly bizarre case. Filled with eye witness reports, historic photos, and current accounts of the paranormal, this in-depth book looks to discover what really happened in the town of Van Meter. Monville, Marie; One Light Still Shines â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My story is not about my past, but about your future,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Marie Roberts Monville. In the startling tragedy of the Amish schoolhouse shooting at Nickel Mines, one story has never been told; Marie Roberts Monville, the wife of the man who created such horror, tells her story for the very first time. It is a story of sorrow and destruction, but also one of majestic deliverance, unending compassion, breathtaking forgiveness, and grace-filled redemption. Within a solitary moment, Marie Monville realized that life, as she knew it, was over. Romp, Julia; The Cat Who Came Back for Christmas Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine-yearold son George was autistic. Quiet and withdrawn, he appeared lost in his own world. Then one day a small black-andwhite stray cat appeared in her gar-

den and Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face lit up. George bonded with Ben and began to open up to his mother as well. For three happy years, the trio was inseparable and George made remarkable progress. But then disaster struckâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Ben went missing and George regressed. The weeks turned into months, and Christmas was fast approaching, but on December 21, Julia got a call from a family more than fifty miles away, which finally offered a ray of hope.

Iowa Fishing Report The Iowa Department of Natural Resources weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For current information, contact the district fisheries office at the phone number listed at the end of each district report.

Iowa Lakes are freezing over

Cold weather settled in over the upper Midwest sealing many Iowa lakes under a layer of ice. As a reminder, a minimum of four inches of quality ice is recommended for fishing and at least five inches for snowmobiles and ATVs. Safety Tips on the Ice ¡ There is no such thing as 100 percent safe ice. ¡ Ice fishing is a social activity, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out alone. If the worst should happen, someone would be there to call for help or to rescue. ¡ There could be pockets of thin ice or places where ice recently formed, so it would be wise to check ice thickness as you go out. ¡ Ice thickness is not uniform on any body of water. Things like current and springs slow ice growth. Rocks, trees or docks that poke through the ice like will conduct heat and make the ice around it less stable. ¡ Avoid off-colored snow or ice. It is usually a sign of weakness. ¡ The insulating effect of snow slows down the freezing process. ¡ Safety items in the bucket: Ice picks, about 50 feet of rope and a throwable floatation seat cushion for use in case of rescue. NORTHWEST Brushy Creek Lake The main lake is still open, but ice is starting to form near shore and in the upper part of the lake. Bacon Creek Lake Bacon Creek was stocked with 1,500 catchable size rainbow trout on Nov. 20th. Bacon Creek is mostly covered with ice and ice thickness is

around 1.5 inches. Rainbow Trout Excellent: Anglers have been catching limits of rainbow trout casting very small spinners and Kastmasters. Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake) Storm Lake has about 1.5 inches of ice in most areas. Black Hawk Lake Black Hawk Lake has around 3 inches of ice. There is open water in the Town Bay area. Arrowhead Lake There is around 2 to 2.5 inches of ice on Arrowhead Lake. Black Hawk Pits There is around 2 to 2.5 inches of ice on Black Hawk Pits. Moorland Pond Moorland Pond was stocked with 1,500 catchable size rainbow trout on Nov. 16th. Rainbow Trout - Excellent: Anglers have been catching limits of rainbow trout casting small spinners and Kastmasters. For more information on lakes, ponds, and rivers in the Black Hawk District contact the District Office at 712-657-2638. Clear Lake Clear Lake is mostly covered with ice. Ice thickness is 2 to 3 inches. If you venture out use caution and drill test holes as you go. Blue Pit Blue Pit was stocked with 1,500 catchable size rainbow trout on Nov. 27th. For lake updates and fishing information in the north central area contact the Clear Lake Fish and Wildlife office at 641-357-3517. Big Spirit Lake Iowa Great Lakes - Limited fishing activity at this time. Shallow lakes have ice; however, ice conditions are unsafe with less than one inch of ice. Scharnberg Pond 1,500 rainbow trout were stocked Nov. 9th. Iowa Great Lakes - Limited fishing activity at this time. Night time wader fishing is a key component.

ternoon #20-#24 blue wings can continue sporadically throughout the winter months. Wooly bugger patterns in bright yellows or whites have been very effective in fast water. Flashy streamer patterns are good choices for early winter fishing. Weekend weather forecast is calling for sunny with temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Angling pressure remains very low. Most area lakes and backwaters now have ice.

Be careful when walking on new ice. Fluctuating temperatures, flow, wind and rain can change conditions quickly. Urban ponds are now being stocked with trout.

GHV Boys Expect Another Successful Season or four teams expected to be in the hunt, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubtful that GHV will be overlooked this time around. Things seemed to click last year for the Cardinals in their first season of sharing between Garner-Hayfield and Ventura. The two squads gelled quickly while winning the NIC crown and finishing the season at 17 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5. The program enjoyed success top to bottom, as the sophomore/junior varsity team

CWL basketball team ready for season

The CWL boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team will return seven letterwinners form last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster as the Panthers kickoff their final season in school history. CWL concluded their 2012-2013 season 5-16, where the team graduated five. Returning as seniors this season are Sam Ludwig, Jared Haler, Casey McGregor, and Stefan Chambers. Joining them on the roster are juniors Esden Carroll, John Genrich and sophomore Grant Carroll. The Panthers improved on their record last year by earning five wins and losing two additional games by 10 points or less. They hope to continue that trend this year by adding even more to the win column. As a team, CWL scored 841 points, dished out 180 assists, stole the ball 178 times and collected 51 blocks on the season. Additionally, the team collected a total of 702 rebounds, 283 offensive and 419 defensive. Esden Carroll led the Panthers in scoring with 240 points including 31 three pointers. Esden was second on the team last season in both assists and steals with 36 and 39 respectively, and third in rebounds at 90. Jared Haler led the Panthers last year in assists with 57, while collecting the second most rebounds at 58, and third most steals with 31. Haler scored 43 points for the Panthers. Grant Carroll scored 53 points and collected 11 rebounds last season, Stefan Chambers 26 points and 29 rebounds, Sam Ludwig 18 points and 16 rebounds, while both John Genrich and Casey McGregor each added eight points and 12 rebounds. The Panthers opened up their 2012-2013 season Monday against BelmondKlemme. CWL then played North Iowa Tuesday, and will travel to the Saint Ansgar Tournament Saturday and kickoff their conference schedule next Monday against Clay Central Everly.

BVU womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball posts third-highest point total Buena Vista University had 15 players score on Saturday afternoon during a 111-43 victory over Illinois Tech to close out play at the Simpson College Classic. As a team, the Beavers shot 53.2 percent from the field, including 8-of-18 from downtown, despite making just 21-of-31 at the free-throw line. The team also committed a season-low 10 turnovers. The Beavers held Illinois Tech to just 21 percent shooting from the field and forced 25 turnovers. BVU scored the first six points of the game before Illinois Tech got back to 6-5. The Beavers then followed with a 16-4 spurt to bump the lead to 22-9 midway through the half before extending it to 31-13 just three minutes later. The Beavers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take their foot off the pedal from there and took a 51-19 lead into the half. The lead grew to 75-25 six minutes into the second half, and BVU had reached 90 points with nearly seven minutes to play. The team reached the century mark for the second time this season on a bucket by Alicia Savoy of Garner with 4:25 left. The 111 points scored is tied for the third-highest single-season mark in school history, and the most points the team has scored since setting the record last season during a 118-57 road win at Crown College. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also just the second time the team has scored at least 100 points in more than one game during a single season since it did so three times back in 199697.

When preseason prognosticators peered into their crystal balls a year ago, very few gave the Cardinals any chance of winning the North Iowa Conference title.

Wednesday, Dec.. 4, 2013 â&#x20AC;˘ The

Leader 13A

Disappointing Start for Cardinal Girls GHV girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball coach Matt Erpelding was hoping to see his team open the 2013-14 season as a finely tuned machine, picking up where they left off at the end of last year. With a wealth of experience on the roster, GHV is expected to field a strong team this season but once again the in-

jury bug has bitten the Cardinals. With three senior letter winners watching the game in street clothes and a fourth key contributor also sitting out, GHVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depth was tested in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seasonopener. West Fork has always fielded a competitive girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team and the Warhawks were able to take advan-

tage of the short-handed Cardinals by defeating GHV 49 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 37. GHV found themselves in a big hole early as several missed scoring opportunities allowed West Fork to build a 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7 lead after one quarter of play. The Cardinals stepped it up on the defensive end of the floor in the second period to claw their way back into the game. Trailing only 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 19 at intermission, the Cardinals appeared to have momentum after the impressive rally. West Fork played a strong third quarter to regain control of the game. The Warhawks built their lead to 37 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 29 heading into the fourth quarter and then maintained their lead for the rest of the game for the non-conference win. One of Erpeldingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question marks heading into the season was his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to score from the perimeter. Poor shooting plagued the GHV girls in this game as the Cardinals connected on

only two of 14 three-point shots while converting only 33% of their field goal attempts. An equally poor performance at the free throw line contributed to the Cardinal loss. Maddie Tusha led GHV with 16 points, six rebounds and three steals. Emily Spilman followed with a dozen points and five steals while Shelby Rayhons scored four points with five rebounds. Mackenzie Haag chipped in six rebounds and two points, Tiara Van Gerpen scored a field goal and Mackenzie Van Gerpen added a free throw to round out the Cardinal scoring. Coach Erpelding commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expected our offense to struggle but did not expect our defense to be as poor as it was. We fell behind by a dozen in the first quarter as we struggled to convert on the offensive end and gave up numerous easy baskets. We refocused on the defensive end in the second quarter

Cardinal Wrestlers Look to Improve It would be an understatement to say that last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrestling season was a challenge for Cardinal coach Steve Smith. With only a handful of competitors on the roster, duals were always a no-win situation as GHV had to forfeit over half of the matches each time out. As the 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 14 season begins Smith is optimistic about this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook

as the roster has more than doubled in size. Four senior letter winners will provide leadership to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cardinal wrestling team. All four begin the season as seasoned veterans in varsity competition and will look to score consistently for Smith. Nic Tusha is expected to wrestle at 220 pounds for

and held them to two points that allowed us to get back in the game. But for whatever reason we came out in the second half and played like we did in the first quarter. Our defensive positioning and rotation was very bad most all night long. We were late rotating which gave them way too many shots right around the rim. They shot 55% from the floor which is a pretty good indication our defense was nonexistent. Give credit to West Fork as they were able to take advantage of our sluggish defense by using their quickness to attack the basket and find the open teammate. Their quickness also caused us difficulty getting into a good flow on the offensive end. The fact we were not able to convert from the free throw line also made it hard to get into a flow as whenever we did do some good things on offense those possessions often ended with missed free throws. We will get

132 pounds. Newcomers expected to contribute are sophomore 170-pounder Cade Baker along with freshmen Conner Shaw (152 pounds) and Austin Case (106 pounds). The Cardinal roster has been slim for several consecutive years, meaning Coach Smith is looking forward to being able to field a competitive lineup. Not every slot will be filled in dual action, but giving up only one or two forfeits will be a huge improvement compared to recent seasons. Smith noted that some of the holes are being filled by freshmen so their success will depend on how well they adjust to wrestling against varsity competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited about the upcoming season,â&#x20AC;? remarked Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have numbers this year which is huge. We should have maybe one or two open weights that we should fill once kids get down where they want. We will be able to compete in duals this year with having a full squad. We open this year at home with Osage, Belmond and Newman at home. We have three great volunteer coaches in place in Jordan Paulson, Travis Dodd and Eric Jackson. New assistant coach Cory Jenniges brings in a ton of experience. This should be a fun year. Kids are learning a lot and working hard so far in practice. There is a different attitude in the room this year compared to years past.â&#x20AC;?

VGH Eighth Grade Boys Earning Wins

Billy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joeyâ&#x20AC;? Awtry and Morningsideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team will travel December 7 to Des Moines to face Grand View University in an all-Iowa semifinal round game in the NAIA Championship series. The fifth ranked Mustangs defeated 4th ranked Baker University in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterfinal game 36-28 in Baldwin City, Kansas. Awtry (99) is shown in kickoff formation at the Baker game. He was credited with one tackle from his linebacker position. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game will be the first ever meeting of the two teams. (Submitted by Gene Knudsen, Morningside photographer)

West Hancock boys gear up for basketball season The West Hancock boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team returns five starters from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-14 young team for the 20132014 season. The Eagles welcome back sophomores Connor Sonius, Nate Paulus, juniors Jordan Savoy, Trevor Nalan and senior Jacob Hejlik to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup. Sonius led the Eagles in assists and steals last season with 171 and 71 respectively. He also compiled 270 points, 16 blocks and 114 rebounds for the Eagles. Paulus collected 335 points, 46 assists, 42 steals, two blocks and 61 rebounds last season, while Savoy had 82 points, 21 assists, 18 steals, 14 blocks and 91 rebounds. Nalan compiled 150 points, 25 assists, 25 steals, 10 blocks and 146 rebounds to lead the Eagles a year ago. Hejlik scored 96 points, five assists, 10 steals, 20 blocks and 99 rebounds. Under the helm of coach Brian Peterson, West Hancock also looks to the following eight athletes as key contributors this season. Senior Cole Weiland, juniors Logan Weiland, Joey DeHart, sophomores Nelson Barraca, Ricky Ibarra, Vicente Gonzalez, and freshmen Dylan Eckels and Seth Weiland.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a year older and this team has a better understanding of the West Hancock way,â&#x20AC;? Peterson said in regards to his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strengths this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quickness, shooting and ball handling is very strong. We have multiple guys who can shoot the ball and take it off the bounce. We are very strong off ball defenders and our different presses and we cover the space well.â&#x20AC;? Coach Peterson noted that his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense was very poor last year in the half court set which he contributed some to the youth of his team and lack of understanding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This falls squarely on my shoulders to make sure they understand and we will understand it better this season.â&#x20AC;? Peterson is pleased with how close his group of athletes is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;their bond, friendship and closeness from 9-12 grade is a welcomed surprise. It is rare to see kids check their ego at the door for the betterment of the team.â&#x20AC;? Coach Peterson is assisted by Kevin Eisenman, Jay Hiscocks and Jim Becker. The Eagles tipped-off their first official game this week at home against Eagle Grove Monday. They then headed to Northwood Tuesday and will host Central Springs this Friday.

Basketball season is roughly half over for the Ventura/Garner-Hayfield eighth grade boys and the Vikings have been playing very well to date. The eighth grade A team is currently unbeaten after four games while the B squad is 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2. The Vikings opened the season on November 14 with a 32 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 27 victory over Lake Mills. Jack Van Dusseldorp and Ray Cataldo shared high scoring honors with eight points apiece. Connor Burke, Ryan Meyers and Dane Whipple all chipped in four points while Jonah Albertson and Nick Joynt each added a basket. VGH followed that victory with a lopsided win at Newman on November 18. The Knights were no match for the Vikingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; size advantage as VGH earned a 43 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 16 win. Nick Joynt led the Vikes in the scorebook with 11 points followed by Ray Cataldo with seven points and Jack Van Dusseldorp with six. Matt Heineman and Ryan Meyers each scored five points for the Vikes while Jonah Albertson, Tyler Kumsher and Dane Whipple all scored two points. Connor Burke completed the

Eight letterwinners return to Eagle wrestling

Third year head coach, Mark Sanger, welcomes back eight returning wrestlers and seven freshmen to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Hancock wrestling roster. Three seniors return as letterwinners this season, Hunter Hiscocks (132), Drew Redenius (170) and Uziel Romero (220). Juniors Logan Brown (138), Klayton Lamoreux (152) and sophomores Dakota Peterson (126), Sam Smith (145), Dalton Bates (160) all return to the mat for the 2013-2014 season. Lamoreux and Redenius both were District Qualifiers a year ago. The Eagles also welcome the following seven freshmen to the program, Clayton Brown (106), J.J. Holland (106), Michael Myers (120/126), Nick Lemmon (126/132), Ernest Duran (126/132), Jordan Weiland (152), and John Fransen (220/285). The Eagles are assisted by Billy Dallman, Doug Doughan, Dave Brown and Paul Francis (junior high). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest challenge we will face this year is inexperience and youth,â&#x20AC;? noted coach Sanger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of new/young wrestlers whose challenge will be their lack of experience and mat time.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The letter winners have had their share of ups and downs thus far in their wrestling careers. Now is the time they need to step up and be the leaders. The time has come where these guys need to start being aggressive and going out and pressing the issue on the mat. We also have a good core of freshmen coming in this year that will contribute, but it is up to the returning letter winners to lead the way.â&#x20AC;? The Eagles will make their wrestling debut this week at home Thursday against Forest City and Emmetsburg. They will then head to a tournament Saturday in Okoboji.

Care and selection of poinsettias

THE

By Richard Jauron, Willy Klein Iowa State University Extension AMES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The poinsettia is one of the most popular potted flowers in the United States. ISU Extension horticulturists tell how to select a healthy plant and the care involved to keep the plant attractive through the holiday season. What should I look for when buying a poinsettia? Poinsettias are available in a wide range of colors. Red is the most popular color. However, poinsettias also are available in burgundy, pink, salmon, white, cream and gold. There also are bicolored, marbled and speckled poinsettias. The colorful part of the poinsettia, commonly referred to as the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flowers, are actually modified leaves or bracts. The true flowers are yellow to green, button-like objects located in the center of the bracts. When selecting a poinsettia, choose a well-shaped plant with dark green foliage and well-colored bracts. The true flowers should be shedding little or no pollen. Avoid poinsettias with wilted foliage, broken stems or few leaves. How do I care for a poinsettia? Place the poinsettia in a plant sleeve or carefully wrap it before transporting the plant home. Exposing the poinsettia to freezing temperatures, even for a few minutes, may cause its bracts and leaves to blacken and drop. As soon as you get home, unwrap the poinsettia and place it near a sunny window or other well-lit location. However, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the plant touch the cold window pane. Also, keep the poinsettia away from cold drafts or heat sources. Poinsettias prefer temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Water needs can be determined with your finger. Check the potting soil daily. When the soil surface becomes dry to the touch, water the plant until water begins to flow out the bottom of the pot. The pots of most poinsettias are placed inside decorative pot covers. When watering a poinsettia, carefully remove the pot covering, water the plant in the sink, then drop the poinsettia back into the pot cover. When given good care, a poinsettia should remain attractive for several weeks, well after the Christmas and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day holidays.

Is the poinsettia poisonous? The poinsettia has long been regarded as poisonous. However, research conducted at various institutions has shown the poinsettia is not poisonous. While the poinsettia is not poisonous, it is not intended for human or animal consumption. Individuals are still advised to keep the poinsettia out of the reach of small children and pets. One potential health problem associated with the poinsettia is dermatitis or an irritation to the skin. When a poinsettia stem is cut or broken, milky sap oozes from the wound. Some individuals may develop a skin irritation if the milky sap comes in contact with their skin. Colorful poinsettias Cecilia Brown waters a display of poinsettias at the Garner Greenhouse. Poinsettias come in a wide range of colors, although the traditional red poinsettia is the most popular. According to an Iowa State University website, the poinsettia is native to southern Mexico and is named after Joel R. Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico, who introduced the poinsettia to the U.S. in 1825. (Leader photo by Rebecca Peter)
