Berggren completes four decades of service to TMNH Timely Mission Nursing Home celebrated the career of nursing home administrator Murray Berggren on Thursday, Dec. 12, as Berggren plans to retire at the end of this month following 40 years of service. “I’ve been real lucky to be here,� said Berggren, who started at the nursing home in 1973 when he was just 23 years old. He served as a combat medic in the U.S. Army for three years during the Korean War before earning his Health Care Administrator degree at Des Moines Area Community College. He came to Timely Mission right after college, and he’s been here ever since. “I want to thank all of the great residents that are here,� said Berggren. “That’s what my love was in the first place – the residents.� Berggren also thanked all the hard-working staff and the Board of Directors, who have made it possible to have a nursing home in Buffalo Center. TMNH Board President Larry Weaver presented Berggren with a plaque, thanking him for his outstanding dedication, commitment, compassion and a job well done. “Murray and all the preceding board members have done a mighty fine job of keeping this place going,� said Weaver. Berggren says he’s stayed at Timely Mission all these years because he likes the small town atmosphere. “I think the residents get treated better, and there are all the people from the town coming in for activities,� said Berggren. “They really care here.� The nursing home has changed quite a bit since Berggren started here, including additions built in 1974 and 1984, and new safety features, such as a sprinkler system. Berggren’s priorities for retirement include spending time with his wife, Karen, and his grandkids. He’ll also be getting his fishing gear ready, and he plans to spend more time taking care of himself. The Berggrens have a son, Chris, and his wife, Lisa Berggren, of Buffalo Center, who have a boy named Brayden. They also have a daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Bo Geigley, who live in West Des Moines with their two children, Lotus and Bowen.

Vada Roberts, daughter of Mindy and Nathan Roberts, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus at NIB’s Santa House last Saturday, Dec. 14, for Old Fashioned Christmas.

Most of the local population is too young to remember or know what gas rationing was like.

Ladies win after one-point loss The Lady Bison came just short of victory in their closest contest of the season on Saturday, Dec. 7, as they hosted St. Ansgar. North Iowa made a comeback in the third quarter after the Saints led during the first half, but St. Ansgar pulled it out with a 51-50 win. Paige Hassebroek scored seven field goals and two free throws to lead the Lady Bison with 16 points, followed by Krista Hovland with 12 points, Mica Johnson eight, and Rachel Boekelman and Rebecca Murray with seven each. Murray had nine rebounds, Hassebroek eight and Hovland seven. Boekelman led in steals with four. Lady Bison Head Coach Rob Riedinger says it was a very exciting game of high school basketball. “We were a little stagnant in the first half and found ourselves down at halftime by seven points,” said Riedinger. “We showed up in the third quarter defensively, allowing St. Ansgar only seven points and scoring 18, and we held the lead 40-36 at the end of the third period. Costly turnovers in the fourth and missed offensive opportunities, including four attempts in the final seconds for the win, resulted in a wild finish.” St. Ansgar 11 18 7 15 51 North Iowa 8 14 18 10 50 The ladies traveled to Lake Mills on Tuesday, Dec. 10 for the North Iowa Conference opener, which they won by a margin of 56-43. “The Lady Bison won all four quarters and played an entire game

focused and applying defensive pressure to the tune of causing 30 turnovers,” said Coach Riedinger. “I was pleased with the overall effort of the team. Paige had an outstanding offensive game, scoring early and often to help the team build a lead. Hassebroek led all scorers with 21 points, followed by Boekelman with 10 and Murray with seven. Hassebroek also led in rebounds with 12, followed by Murray with 10 and Hovland with eight. Hovland tallied five steals and three blocks.

Our defense caused many turnovers, and our offense was very productive. We had six different girls scoring on the night, which is good to see. That means more girls are contributing and looking to score.” Scoring for North Iowa were Taylen Hinders with 17 points, Kendall Melz 12, Dani Yegge four, Rachel Hassebroek four, Sydney Larson four and Brooke Hovland two. The Lady Bison made 19 field goals and were 5/8 from the freethrow line.

Bison open conference play with losses

Josh Mathahs looks for a way out as he’s put under pressure by the Indians last Friday night, Dec. 13 in Buffalo Center.

The North Iowa Bison are off to a rocky start in the North Iowa Conference, after losing their first two conference basketball games last week. The Bison traveled to Lake Mills on Tuesday, Dec. 10, where they fell 52-41 to the Bulldogs, and they hosted Forest City on Friday, Dec. 13, in a 64-42 loss. “At Lake Mills, we did a good job of establishing an inside game,” said Bison Head Coach Chad Hinders. “Our first quarter shooting consisted of a lot of 6-12 foot shots. We were successful at making six out of 10 shots at that range. Defensively, we did a good job of contesting shots in the paint, but unfortunately, Granger Kingland found three opportunities to shoot from the corner; making all three to keep pace with us. “Offensively, the first quarter was our best scoring output; putting up 15 points,” said Hinders. “We struggled through the second and third quarters when they changed defenses and really started paying attention to our inside game. The Bulldogs were able to build an eight point lead during this time. Towards the end of the third and beginning of the fourth, we found some success inside and worked our way back to take the lead 39-38 early in the fourth quarter. But from that point, Lake Mills outscored us 14-2 to take the contest, 5241. “Over half their shots were three pointers, and of their makes, 10/18 were from behind the arc,” noted Hinders. “They are very good shooters, and we have to learn to identify offensive threats and make sure they are covered throughout a possession or do not get loose on an inbounds play. It really came down to the fact that they made the plays down the stretch, and we did not. I am pleased that we fought hard to get back in the game. We just need to understand what the game situation calls for and better execute strategy down the stretch of the game. Hopefully, this was a learning experience that we can build on

as the season progresses. Tate Corporon was the Bison’s top scorer at Lake Mills with 13 points, followed by Trevor Aukes with 10 and Austin Paden with eight. Corporon had 17 rebounds, and Dylan Voortmann had seven. Aukes made four steals, and Corporon had four blocks. Lake Mills 11 16 9 16 52 North Iowa 15 7 9 10 41 The contest against Forest City went back and forth until the Indians went on a 22-2 run to lead 31-9 midway through the second quarter. “We did go on a little run to cut into their lead. At one point in the second half, we had the chance to get the lead down to single digits but were unable to convert,” said Hinders. “Tonight, we did improve on locating shooters but still have areas to improve on. We did a good job on their point guard Erich Erdman, but they received points from their center Isaiah Loeschen and wing Ethan Erdman that proved to be problematic,” said Coach Hinders. “The disappointing fact was the baskets that came from these two individuals were either on second chance opportunities when we were unable to keep him off the boards after he had missed his initial shot (Loeschen) or when we failed to recognize a shooter on the wing (Erdman). Corporon and Voortmann led the Bison on the scoreboard with eight points each, followed by Taylor Ostermann and Paden with six apiece. Aukes and Derek Yegge each scored five, and Connor Smith scored four. Voortmann led in rebounds with seven, followed by Corporon with six. Corporon totaled four blocks. “The keys to both conference games were very similar,” said Hinders. “Lake Mills and Forest City have experienced guards that can really shoot the ball. We need to make sure we account for them at all times, and we cannot afford to give them open looks, because that most likely will lead to three points every time. The only difference between the two is

that Forest City has more of a true post player, and Lake Mills has players that do the little things to get their shooters open. “It doesn’t get any easier in the conference, as we will face an athletic team in Newman Catholic,” said Hinders of the game in Mason City this Tuesday. “They have three players with experience, and they have been playing well lately. They were kind of overlooked last year and have taken that to heart and are looking to prove people wrong. They have played the same two conference teams we have and have played them tough. This will be a good road test to end the first part of our season.” Forest City 23 16 18 7 64 North Iowa 9 16 7 10 42 JV Boys The North Iowa JV boys’ team had a busy week with three games, resulting in two wins and their first loss of the season. The boys traveled to Lake Mills on Tuesday, Dec. 10, where they won, 2823. Leading scorers were Drew Jensen with 14 points and Austin Haisman with nine points. Jensen also contributed six offensive rebounds and four steals. The Bison hosted Forest City on Friday, Dec. 13, resulting in North Iowa’s first loss, 37-26. Haisman led the Bison in scoring with eight points, while Logan Eichenberger added six and Jensen scored five. The Bison then traveled to Clarion for a Saturday afternoon game on December 14. Once again, the Bison prevailed with a 32-29 victory; improving their record to four wins and one loss. Steven Milbrandt led in scoring with 12 points, followed by Haisman with 11. “This past week was a busy week for the boys JV team with three games, but they have responded very well,” said Coach Justin Ullmann. “I am very pleased with the effort of the team and look forward to the second half of the basketball season.”
