Correction It was erroneously reported in the Nov. 28 edition of the Pioneer Enterprise that 20 petition signatures from eligible city voters would be necessary to force a special election for the vacant Rockwell City Council seat. As per Cerro Gordo County Auditor Ken Kline, the number of signatures needed would be 39. The Pioneer Enterprise regrets the error.

By Nick Pedley Six local fire departments responded to a blaze that completely destroyed two shop buildings at the Mark and Susan Rother farm north of Latimer Saturday morning. The Rothers’ son Tony, who lives across the road, saw smoke coming from his parents’ residence just after 8:30 a.m. and reported it to emergency dispatch. Latimer Fire Chief Mike Keehn said he got the call around 8:40 a.m. and gathered his crew to respond to the blaze, which was located relatively far from surrounding towns. The group knew right away they they had their work cut out for them. “We could see the smoke

Thornton lighting contest winners The Thornton Merchants were pleased to announce Saturday the winners of the 2013 city-wide holiday lighting contest. First place – Larry and Judie Lightbody.

from Latimer, which is well over six miles away,� said Keehn. “We immediately called for Sheffield because we could tell it was going to take a lot of water.� Flames had already engulfed one building on the property upon the Latimer Fire Department’s arrival. The building, which was used as a maintenance shop for the Rothers’ trucking business, wasn’t their only worry, however. The fire was spreading to another nearby building that housed supplies for the Rothers’ construction and masonry business. Fire crews set up water tanks and fought the flames to the best of their ability. The Sheffield Fire Department arrived, but it

was nowhere near enough. Departments from Coulter, Thornton, Meservey and Swaledale were eventually called in to assist. “It was a defensive battle with the fire – we call it ‘surround and drown,’ There were no lives at stake, so there was no need to enter,� Keehn explained. “We had pumpers going on all three sides. That’s pretty much all we could do with this one – get water on it.� An LP gas tank located directly next to one of the burning buildings added yet another concern for fire fighters. Keehn said they kept one hose on the tank and monitored its temperature throughout the battle, but no problems ever developed. FIRE to page 2

Rockwell council to move forward with appointment despite doubts By Nick Pedley To appoint or not to appoint? That was the question presented to the Rockwell City Council at their meeting Dec. 4. Mayor Steve Karabatsos informed the group that plans to appoint Larry Wentz to former councilman Dave Laudner’s vacant seat might have hit a roadblock. An individual has taken out a petition for a special election and has also spoken with Cerro Gordo County Auditor Ken Kline about the requirements needed to bring the issue to a vote. However, no official paperwork had been submitted to City Clerk Lorna Weier as of Tuesday afternoon. Karabatsos wondered whether or not it’d be worth the council’s trouble to appoint Wentz if a petition was already circulating that would force a special election regardless of their decision. “If there’s a petition out there with the signatures, it’s probably pointless for you guys to appoint anyone,� said Karabatsos. Councilman Adam Wedmore strongly disagreed, and felt that a special election would be a waste of both time and money. “I think it’s asinine to hold a special election when we just voted four weeks ago,� he said. “I don’t want to see a seat empty when it can be filled at no cost.� Laudner, whose resignation took effect Nov. 21, had informed the council of his intention to leave in the summer following his move from Rockwell this fall. According to Karabatsos, the council decided after Laudner’s announcement to appoint the fourth place finisher in the Nov. 5 election. Three incumbent candidates – Kenny Nielsen, Gary Akins and Wedmore – choose not to seek re-election this year, and they felt appointing the fourth place finisher would theoretically give Rockwell citizens the candidate they voted for. “It’s the will of the people,� said Karabatsos.

Wentz Wentz finished fourth with 74 votes behind winners James Bills (169), Tom Worley (130) and Tim Brown (121). Lee Gossweiler and Tonia Rurup were the next-closest behind Wentz, finishing with 60 votes apiece. The council backed Wedmore’s sentiment and unanimously agreed to proceed with Wentz’s appointment at their Dec. 18 meeting. An official public notice was published in the Dec. 5 edition of the Pioneer Enterprise which detailed the council’s scheduled appointment. Wentz would serve the remainder of Laudner’s term – two years – or until someone is elected in the special election. “He’d be kind of like an interm councilman until the special election is over,� said Kline. “Or, he could win it and retain the seat.� Kline explained that a minimum of 39 signatures from eligible voters is needed to force a special election. Kline said that number is calculated by a formula stipulated in Iowa Code. The petition must be filed within 14 days after the appointment is made to be eligible. “If a petition is filed, so be it. But I’m going to go ahead with that appointment,� said Wedmore. “We can’t say for sure if one will be filed anyway.�

All the buildings on the Rothers' farm yard were relatively close to one another. Despite the proximity, firefighters maintained the damage to just two buildings. (Photo by Ryan Harvey, Hampton Chronicle)

Drury to run for Cerro Gordo County supervisor By Nick Pedley Swaledale Mayor John Drury has set his political sights to the county level after announcing his candidacy for Cerro Gordo County supervisor last week. Drury, who’s been mayor at Swaledale for 12 of the past 14 years, described his decision to run as the next logical step in local government. He said he had a desire to serve the county’s citizens and looked forward to campaigning for a chance to represent them. “I’m not running just because I want the position, I’m running because I think I bring something to the table,� Drury said. Drury’s candidacy comes at the heels of current District 2 Supervisor Bob Amosson’s announcement that he would not seek re-election next year. Amosson explained his decision to call it quits was a relatively easy one to make. “I was right at three terms, so that was enough,� he said. “I’m getting up there in age, too.� Amosson said the development of the Cerro Gordo County Law Enforcement Center and restoration of Clear Lake were two of the largest projects he helped direct during his tenure. He was first elected to the board

of supervisors in 2001 and has won re-election ever since. Drury said he wouldn’t have ran if Amosson sought another term because he felt Amosson served county citizens well over the past 12 years. “He’s always been responsive and called me back every time I’ve tried to reach him. He’s shown good interest in the county,� said Drury. “He’s always done a good job.� Drury said he enjoyed local government because political affiliation is mostly irrelevant, and community betterment should always be the real focus. He planned to run a campaign that pushes development outside of Mason City and focuses more attention in other portions of the county. “We emphasize that there’s a regional focus throughout the county, but I really don’t know that we do that,� he said. “Sometimes I think Clear Lake and some of the smaller communities feel like they don’t get their fair shake.� Drury, a Democrat, will have to win the June primary to get on the ballot for the November 2014 general election. He figured a few other candidates would throw their hats into ring

for the primary, but welcomed the challenge. Drury will have to resign from the mayor’s chair at Swaledale if he survives the primary and wins the general election next November. He recently won re-election this fall, which was the seventh time he’s been elected to the position. The only time Drury hasn’t sat in the mayor’s chair in the last 14 years was from 20042005. “That’s a long time. I’m ready to move on to the county level, because I think there’s a lot we can accomplish,� he said.

Bridge project making progress in Rockwell By Nick Pedley If everything goes according to plan, renovations to Rockwell’s Madison Street bridge will begin in early spring and wrap up sometime in June. Engineer Stan Stallsmith from WHKS of Mason City, met with the Rockwell City Council Dec. 4 and gave an update on the bridge project’s progress. Stallsmith said the final blueprints have been submitted to the Department of Transportation’s office in Ames for final review. The bid-letting process can get underway following the DOT’s authorization, and can be opened beginning Feb. 18, Stallsmith said. Once all the paperwork and contracts are in order, work on the bridge could begin as early as mid-March. “If the weather’s good and

you guys are OK with it, they can start then,� Stallsmith told the council. “At the very earliest.� Only certain portions of the bridge – like the beams and deck – will be replaced during the renovation process. The foundation will remain intact, which will allow for a relatively fast completion. Stallsmith explained the construction company that gets hired for the job is mandated to complete the project within a certain timeframe mandated by the DOT. Their work period begins in mid-April, but Stallsmith reiterated that they can start earlier. “If they don’t have the project done within the required window of days, then they start getting charged,� he said. The bridge will be widened

from its current width of 22 feet to 26 feet upon completion. The council agreed in late summer to include four domed street lights into construction plans – two on each end at the bridge’s corners. The council felt the lights would increase visibility on the dark street, thus increasing safety. However, they come at a cost. Stallsmith estimated the lights at around $20,000 all together, but noted that he guessed high to avoid the potential for overspending. “I think they’ll actually run probably $3,000-4,000 a light,� Stallsmith said. “That $20,000, I hope I aimed high on that one. I just don’t think they’ll cost that much.� Stallsmith said the majority of construction will be done in May and June. The council felt it was important Madison Street BRIDGE to page 4

As soon as we make sure the cement’s OK, we’ll get everything pushed off and start building it back up again,� he said.

Saturday’s fire was unfortunate for the Rothers, but Mark knew the family’s losses could have been worse. The buildings are all located very close to one another and he was thankful firefighters kept the blaze

from spreading further. “I commend them immensely, because it was so cold out and they did a great job of maintaining it to just the two,� he said. “It was kind of a bum deal.�

FIRE from front Frigid temperatures created additional concerns for the crews. Water runoff eventually froze and made the ground extremely slippery, but it was more of an inconvenience than anything else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was 9 degrees when we got there, I think. It got pretty slick out there, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear of any injuries. Just a lot of cold toes.â&#x20AC;? Firefighters got the flames completely under control around noon, Keehn said. A backhoe from Lambertsen Excavating was called in to peal away some of the metal siding on the shop, which allowed crews to douse the fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hotspots more thoroughly. Local departments were gradually dismissed as firefighters gained more control over the blaze. Keehn said Latimer and Sheffield finally left the Rother farm around 2:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were talking, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a while since we had one this big,â&#x20AC;? said Sheffield Assistant Fire Chief Calvin Primus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get water there fast enough. It was was kind of in the middle of everyone. There was no easy access to it.â&#x20AC;? Neither fire department officials nor the Rothers knew what started the blaze. Mark Rother thought it might be electric-related, but said that was purely speculative. The amount of destruction caused by the fire will make determining a cause extremely difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. It could have been a malfunctioning furnace, I have heated floors, maybe bad wiring. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just guessing because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know for sure,â&#x20AC;? he said. An insurance agent was scheduled to make a damage assessment on Monday, but Rother estimated the figure would end up well over $500,000. He said each building housed valuable equipment for the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trucking and construction businesses, which will have to be replaced in addition to the shops. Rother said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already start-

Fighting for her life hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been on the college curriculum but when Liz discovers her art history professor is a vampire her midterms become a test for survival.

Despite my fervent finger-crossing and hopeful wishing, it seems Old Man Winter has arrived and settled in for the long haul throughout the state. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold snap and Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snowfall provided the proverbial nail in the coffin for Franklin County and other portions of Iowa. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much for me to like about winter anymore. It seems the older I get, the more I despise it. Snow, howling wind and treacherous roads used to mean late starts, early outs and no school. Now, however, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a different story. This changing of the seasons has become a pain in my backside, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather it go back where it came from than stay and bother me. Long gone are the days of snowfilled childhood fun. Winter provided my friends and I with countless hours of seasonal activities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d build tunnels in the snow piles, forts in the yard and have snowball fights on the playground at recess. Those got quickly broken-up by some funhating supervisor, but they were a great time nonetheless. Snow also provided us with the perfect playing field for one of our favorite activities of all time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; snow football. The added layer of cushiony white stuff lessened the blow of a hard tackle, and that was extremely helpful for a pipsqueak like myself back then. I could take a hit and not feel anything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; partly because of the snow, and partly because I was freezing cold. As I got older, our snow-themed activities gradually began to evolve.

motor. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tie anything that would slide to the back of a snowmobile, car or truck. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a miracle none of us broke our neck in those teenage years. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hit the streets, fields and anywhere in between with our crazy antics, and the fact that none of us got smoked by oncoming traffic is a testament to either stupid luck or divine intervention. Gradually, however, we moved past all that daredevil stuff. It got old and we just simply hung it up sometime during our junior year of high school. We kind of fell into a lull after that, and we became perfectly content with staying inside where it was warm and there was cable television. Wintertime activities again shifted briefly during my first year of college. The first December storm brought with it a thick and sticky batch of snow that blanketed Iowa City with nearly a foot of white stuff. Classes were surprisingly cancelled due to the bad weather, and a funny thing happened throughout the campus that day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everyone was eight years old again. There was a university-wide snowball fight at the Old Capitol; people went sledding with lunch trays stolen from the dining halls;

and freshmen made snow forts outside of the dorms. It was fun and heart-warming, and forgetting about the books for a day was a much needed break from the standard. Getting cold feet and enjoying it was a nice change of pace. The snow-filled merriment was fleeting, however. The weather soon became an annoyance walking to and from class, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of a snowstorm thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x153;funâ&#x20AC;? since that first big one my freshman year of college. Now, snow is just work. I can already tell shoveling my walk is going to get old fast. I bought a shovel three weeks ago after we received a light dusting, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it until Monday morning. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really not looking forward to traveling through this crud for four months, either. I just hope the weather stays good for Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you have to pick the your battles, I guess. My griping and groaning wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change anything. We live in Iowa after all, and tough winters are included at no added charge. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to grin and bear it like the rest of the state, as much as I hate that. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a silver lining in everything: April is just over 100 days away, so spring is just around theâ&#x20AC;Śah, forget it.

Applications for Conservation Stewardship Program Due Jan. 17

Needy Iowa families to receive 45,900 pounds of free pork in December Iowa families in need this holiday season will receive a total of 10,200 fresh, boneless pork loin roasts with a total value of nearly $107,000 from Iowa Select Farms in cooperation with the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation. These 4.5-pound pork roasts have a combined weight of 45,900 pounds, enough to provide 244,800 servings. From Monday, Dec. 2, through Friday, Dec. 6, Iowa Select Farms delivered a total of 7,200 pork loins with a combined weight of 32,400 pounds to nearly 60 community organizations, food shelves, pantries and food banks in rural communities where Iowa Select Farms has employees and producers. These organizations will then distribute the free pork to local families in need during December. The pork loins, with a combined value of $75,492, will provide 172,800 servings. In addition to the deliveries to food banks and pantries, Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation will give away 3,000 fresh, boneless pork loins to families in need from 5-9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. While supplies last, each family will receive one 4.5-pound roast that will provide 24 servings of lean, nutrientrich pork. This donation will provide approximately 13,500 pounds and 72,000 servings of lean, wholesome

pork valued at $31,455. Hunger is a serious problem in Iowa, where one in eight Iowans are food insecure, which means they do not have the means to obtain nutritionally adequate and safe food. The situation for Iowa children is even more challenging: One in five youngsters in Iowa do not have enough to eat in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second largest food-producing state, which ranks No. 1 among all states in pork production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are grateful for the opportunity to support hunger-relief efforts across Iowa,â&#x20AC;? says Jeff Hansen, President and CEO of Iowa Select Farms and co-founder of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better time than the holiday season for us to share our nutrient-rich pork with hungry Iowans who could use a helping hand.â&#x20AC;? Iowa Select Farms, based in Iowa Falls, is Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest pork producer with nearly 1,000 employees and 300 producers. In 2006 Jeff Hansen and his wife, Deb, established a foundation in their name to advance three core missions: alleviate hunger in Iowa, support Iowa military families and help find a cure for childhood cancers. To date, the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation has donated more than 1.5 million servings of pork to food shelves, pantries and food banks throughout the state.

The USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting applications at local field offices for the 2014 Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) signup. Iowa farmers who apply by Jan. 17, will receive first consideration for funding selections. CSP is offered through a continuous signup, but NRCS periodically makes funding selections. Last year, Iowa NRCS obligated more than $3.8 million through 381 contracts covering 175,346 acres. The program emphasizes conservation performance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; producers earn higher payments for higher performance. Through CSP, producers install conservation enhancements to make positive changes in soil health, soil erosion, water quality, water quantity, air quality, plant resources, animal resources and energy. CSP also supports the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy through various enhancement options. The

Iowa strategy includes practices designed to reduce nutrient loads from nonpoint sources such as farm fields. Some popular nutrient reduction enhancements used by Iowa farmers include: â&#x20AC;˘ Cover crops to scavenge residual nitrogen; â&#x20AC;˘ Precision application technology to apply nutrients; â&#x20AC;˘ Split nitrogen application (50% after crop emergence or pasture green-up); â&#x20AC;˘ Plant tissue tests and analysis to improve nitrogen management. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if the program is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligibility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types. Learn more about CSP by visiting the Iowa NRCS website or your local NRCS field office.

BRIDGE from front was closed as little as possible for the project, and were happy with the relatively short construction timeframe. Safety concerns already forced the council to levy a 10-ton weight limit on the bridge earlier this year due to its weakened integrity. The weight limitations have since constrained truck traffic and other commericial vehicles, and the council wondered whether the bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition had worsened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little rough, but I

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any worse than it was when we began,â&#x20AC;? Stallsmith said. With their minds at ease, the council moved on to other business after Stallsmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s update. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get it started and get it done,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Steve Karabatsos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving right along. Hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get it started right around April 1. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making good progress finally.â&#x20AC;?

Buffalo Center Tribune, Butler County Tribune-Journal, Clarksville Star, Eagle Grove Eagle, Kanawaha Reporter, The Leader, Grundy Register, Hampton Chronicle, Pioneer Enterprise, ShefÂżeld Press, Wright County Monitor, The Reporter â&#x20AC;˘ Wed.-Thurs., December 11-12, 2013

Iowa Fishing Report For lake locations, maps and other information, go to www. iowadnr.gov/Fishing/FishingReports.aspx The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly Âżshing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly Âżshing 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 Âżsheries ofÂżce at the phone number listed at the end of each district report. NORTHWEST Lake Smith Smith Lake had about four inches of ice right off the end of the boat ramp last. Last two days have made ice questionable at best. Limited Âżshing activity this week. Conditions are sure to improve after the cold front arrives. Lake Catherine There were a few anglers out last week but no reports on success. Ice thickness is probably around 3-4 inches. Clear Lake A few anglers have ventured out late last week near Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beach on the south shore. They were picking up some yellow bass with a few crappies. Others have tried just off the McIntosh and Ventura boat ramps with limited success. Lake Cornelia There was Âżve inches of ice on Nov. 28; down to three inches Dec. 4 due to rain and warmer temps. Anglers were doing well on yellow bass 7-8 inches in size. Little Wall Lake Ice is unsafe at Little Wall Lake. Crystal Lake One report of an angler catching bluegills in eight feet on the edge of the dredge cut this past weekend. Blue Pit Blue Pit was stocked with 1,500 catchable size rainbow trout on Nov. 27th. They were not hit very hard by anglers before it froze up so there are good numbers yet. Ice is unsafe right now but may be good on the weekend. Four inches minimum is recommended for foot travel. Bluebill Lake Around three inches of ice. Reports on ice thickness of area lakes have been from 2-4 inches at the beginning of this week. It has melted some the last day or two, but the weather forecast shows colder temps this weekend, so that should add some more. Four inches of ice is recommended for anglers traveling by foot with minimal gear. For lake updates and Âżshing information in the north central area contact the Clear Lake Fish and Wildlife ofÂżce at 641-3573517. Big Spirit Lake Iowa Great Lakes - Ice conditions have been questionable thru Dec. 5, however; colder than normal temperatures expected the next few days should improve ice conditions. Scharnberg Pond 1,500 rainbow trout were stocked Nov. 9th.

NORTHEAST Volga Lake Volga Lake has about four inches of ice. Recent rain may cause the ice to be extremely slippery. Use caution when going on the ice. A reminder that opening shotgun deer season is this weekend and Volga Lake is a popular wildlife management area where hunting takes place. Bluegill No Report: Crappie - Slow: Anglers have been catching crappies near the Ă&#x20AC;oating pier. Lake Hendricks Ice is about four inches thick but spotty especially with recent measurable rainfall on top. Use caution when going out on ice especially around the aerator. No motorized vehicles including ATVs are allowed on the ice. Bluegill - No Report: Crappie Slow: Lake Meyer The lake has about 3 to 4 inches of ice. Use caution when going out on newly formed ice. Check ice depths often. Bluegill - Fair: Small jigs tipped with wax worms are tempting Âżsh this week. Crappie - Fair: Fish are scattered but Âżsh up to 11 inches are being caught on small jigs tipped with minnows. Upper Iowa River (above Decorah) Fish are in their overwintering holes. Smallmouth Bass - No Report: Walleye - Slow: Anglers are having luck using jigs tipped with a twistertail. Try Âżshing off the bottom. Fish are biting really light. Upper Iowa River (below Decorah) Fish are in their overwintering holes. Smallmouth Bass - No Report: Walleye - Slow: Anglers are having success using a variety of jigs tipped with a twistertail. Use a slow presentation. Turkey River (above Clermont) Please use caution when walking out on ice especially where there is Ă&#x20AC;ow. Check ice depths often. Fish will likely be found in deeper holes. Use a slow presentation. Turkey River (below Clermont) We have received no information regarding Âżshing on this water body this week. Cedar River (above Nashua) Ice depths vary especially with the warmer weather this past weekend. Few have been out trying the ice. Continue to use caution when walking out on river ice as depths may vary especially in areas where there is Ă&#x20AC;ow or springs. Northern Pike - No Report: Smallmouth Bass - No Report: Walleye - Slow: Anglers are using 1/8 ounce jigs tipped with minnows. Anglers are Âżnding Âżsh near the bottom of the deeper holes. Decorah District Streams Modest #18 blue wing olive hatches have still been occurring on warmer afternoons providing dry Ă&#x20AC;y opportunities. Streamer and wooly bugger patterns have been very effective. Midge emerger and nymph patterns have also produced good trout. Colder weather is on the way. Check forecasts before venturing out!

Weekend weather forecast is calling for sunny with very cold temperatures. Ice conditions on area lakes and backwaters should improve by weekend. Be careful when walking on ice. Fluctuating temperatures, Ă&#x20AC;ow, wind and rain can change conditions quickly. Urban ponds are now being stocked with trout. Go to http://www.iowadnr.gov/Fishing/TroutFishing.aspx to Âżnd out when and where. For more information, call the Decorah Fish Hatchery at 563-382-8324. North Prairie Lake North Prairie Lake was stocked with trout on Nov. 22nd. Take advantage of some excellent trout Âżshing opportunities this winter when good ice conditions allow. Martens Lake Anglers had been on the ice last week but conditions have deteriorated. Beginning today and over the next 10 days ice conditions should vastly improve.

West Fork dominates in debut By Kristi Nixon GARNER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; West Fork shook off a slow start to pound Garner-Hayfield/Ventura on the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home court on Friday night, 78-48. The Warhawks picked up where they left off from a season ago with four players scoring in double digits, led by Sam Amsbaughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19 points. Despite early charge calls against West Fork, coach Frank Schnoesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; squad outscored the Cardinals 23-12 in the second quarter to take a 32-19 halftime advantage. They came out firing in the second half and never looked back as Hunter Myers scored 15, Spencer Halloran chipped in with 12 and Austin Neff added 10 in the Warhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; road opener. Halloran added four rebounds and three steals in spite of foul trouble. He finished with four fouls. Despite being out-rebounded 3517, West Fork had the game well in hand and used a solid defense against G-H/V, allowing the Cardinals to shoot just 31 percent from the field. And West Fork didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need much rebounding as it shot 32-of-45 from the field for 71 percent. The Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top returning scorer from a year ago, Joel Toppin, finished with only three points, all from the free throw line. Braden Meints had a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Cardinals, the top performance against

West Fork. The Warhawks played host to West Hancock for another non-conference game in their home opener on Monday, Dec. 9 and traveled to Nashua for a Corn Bowl Conference road debut before opening conference home play against North Butler this Friday.

Warhawks open with win By Kristi Nixon NORTHWOOD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Opening with a dual victory against Rockford, coach Jared Arbegast took the West Fork wrestling team to a point it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached in a few years. The Warhawks earned six wins by fall in a 39-18 win over the Wildcats before taking a split in a close 48-36 dual loss to the home team, Northwood-Kensett. Three wrestlers earned wins by fall twice in the triangular, including 126-pounder Jacob Hansen, Matt Ries at 170 and James Vestwe-

ber, wrestling at 182. Both Ries and Vestweber recorded first period pins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really proud of how my wrestlers competed last night,â&#x20AC;? coach Arbegast said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were really excited to be on the mat for the first time this year, and showed their hard work in the practice room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a great start and gives us something to build from. Getting a dual win in our first meet of the year was a great confidence booster for the team and will help motivate them in the practice room. We still have a lot to learn and this achievement will

help to create a positive attitude and work ethic as we go forward.â&#x20AC;? Also earning wins against Rockford were Tanner Shreckengost (285), Colton Rowe (132), Jarel Arbegast (145) and Austin Steil (152). Against the Vikings, West Fork gave up six forfeits, which was key in the loss. Devlynn Sasse and Morgan Steenhard had wins by forfeit against N-K.

Warhawks go to 2-0 By Kristi Nixon NEW HAMPTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; West Fork survived its second straight road test by coming back from a 10-point deficit to beat Class 3A New Hampton on Monday, Dec. 3, 51-49. The Warhawks (2-0) trailed 4334 at the start of the fourth quarter, but poured it on, outscoring the Chickasawks 17-6 in the final eight minutes. In fact, according to coach Rodney Huber, his squad had to rally from 10 down with four minutes to go. Sydney Shreckengost, who, along with Courtney Larson scored 12 to lead West Fork, hit the gamewinning lay-up as time expired. They led a trio in double digits. Larson also led the way with five steals, three assists and a block. Lindsey Peterson added a doubledouble, scoring 11 and pulling down 11 rebounds. The Warhawks got two big threepointers from freshman Kaitlyn Liekweg and pulled out the victory despite the team going 8-for-25 from the free throw line.
