By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate editor Over a year ago, the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors approved a request from the Rockwell City Revitalization Committee and the City of Rockwell City to allow the erection of two signs along Hwy 20, one facing westbound traffic and one facing eastbound traffic, notifying motorists of some services and attractions in Rockwell City. The request was approved and the signs, 10 by 20 foot signs with black lettering on a yellow background, were put up. At the Dec. 10 meeting this year, the city of Manson and the Manson Economic Development Corporation presented a request that supervisors approve construction of two 8 by 16 foot signs directing travelers into Manson, a request that approved by the supervisors. The signs will be placed east of Red Oak Ave and Highway 20 intersection on Robert Lenz’s property and the other sign will be located west of Traer Avenue and Highway 20 intersection on Kevin Vosberg’s property. In neither case is county property being used or county funds provided. At a meeting last year, one of the supervisors asked why county permission was needed. Kelly Smidt explained at that meeting that a federal rule requires that since the signs are outside of the city, that

the request must be submitted to the county. It was noted at the Dec. 10 meeting

Masons spread Christmas cheer the Grand Lodge of Iowa and their own pockets to make a brighter Christmas for many children. Heidi Billmeier, Calhoun County coordinator, provided 25 children’s wishes and sizes to the lodge. Lodge members brought their gifts to the regular monthly meeting recently and enjoyed looking over the diverse assortment of toys and outfits.

that the Rockwell City sign facing west bound traffic as originally worded was misleading, with the

Lohrville-Lanesboro-Yetter area. They have collected clothing through the Union Church and Iowa Savings Bank and purchased food vouchers for holiday meals. The group has fallen short of its goal this year and donations are still needed, given to any of the committee members or to the fund at the United Bank of Iowa. The long-term members of the group were assisted this year by Judy Hungate’s granddaughter Ryann Hungate.

County approves ambulance bid By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Of the two bids for an ambulance chassis and engine, the dealer selected by the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors on Dec. 10 was from farther away than the other dealership but offered the lower bid. Kerrie Hull, E-911 Coordinator, recommended the low bid from Cross Timbers Emergency Vehicles, out of Kansas City, Mo., for $74,768. This includes picking up an ambulance in Calhoun, remounting a box from the ambulance on a new chassis in Kansas City and bringing the new ambulance remount back.

In the residential category, the first place winner is Tricia Stumpf for the block at 156 E.

Harold Barkley and Joe Kangley of Twin lakes Masonic Lodge #478, flanking Heidi Billmeier of New Opportunities, delivered new toys and clothes provided by the lodge on Dec. 6.

For nearly 10 year Twin Lakes Masonic Lodge #478 has provided new toys and clothes for needy children in Calhoun County through New Opportunities, headquartered in Rockwell City. The lodge members and their wives went shopping again this year using the money from the lodge charity fund, matching money from the Grand Charities Fund of


place winner ion Northern Iowa Acupuncture. Second place goes to Calhoun County Courthouse and third place goes to Agents/Alliance Realty. Among the participants in the courthouse square displays, the first place winner is United Bank of Iowa. Second place goes to RC Rotary and third place goes to Calhoun County Officers.

The other bid was for $79,689 from a Rock Rapids based dealer, but it is uncertain whether that would include pickup and delivery. It doesn’t matter because it would not be the low bid in either case. Both bids are for a V-10 gas engine and are for net cost after trade-in. Other EMS crew members at the meeting were Charlie Peyton, Luke Winkelman and Bob Murley. Part of the purchase price will be paid for through rural basic fund and part will come from the EMS operating budget.

County returns check from city of Lytton By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate It is not often that the county returns a check for unpaid property tax without a request from the taxpayer, but the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors voted at their Dec. 10 meeting to return a check for $238 from the city of Lytton for payment of an unresolved tax debt on property the city had acquired. City governments do not generally pay property taxes but any purchaser regardless of tax exempt status becomes responsible for past due tax to clear the property of any liens unless tax forgiveness or a tax compromise is approved in order to

get abandoned or nuisance properties back on the tax rolls. That, in fact, was how the discussion of the property was initiated, during presentation from County Treasurer Lori Erkenbrack,of tax compromise proposals. Although the City of Lytton had not requested forgiveness of a debt on a piece of property acquired, it was noted by Supervisor Dean Hoag that the county had approved tax forgiveness for other municipalities to show county support for nuisance abatement efforts by cities. All three supervisors voted to direct Erkenbrack to return the check to Lytton.

Simplicity needed for efficiency and transparency

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm Let Me Photograph Your Favorite Stuffed Animal!

Have a favorite stuffed animal from your childhood? Or does your current child have a favorite stuffed animal or teddy bear? Well, let me photograph it. Free! I was inspired by Irish photographer Mark Nixon’s photographs floating around on the internet. Part of his portfolio are pictures of raggedy stuffed animals. He put out a call for people to bring in their favorite stuffed animal from childhood, and he would photograph it. These pictures are quite touching, not to mention cute, and rather emotional. I thought, “I’d like to do this.” So I put in a call to my 32-year old son. “Remember Puppy?” I asked. Of course he did. “Well, I’d like to photograph Puppy.” Voila, the first of my stuffed-animal pictures was born. A little history of Puppy: When the kids were small, I took a drawing class, and drew Puppy. As a teenager, my son, not to be outdone by Pa, also drew Puppy. So, we have both drawn, Puppy, and now immortalized him further through photography. And if I can find those two drawings, I’m going to frame them. By the way, my son always said his drawing of Puppy was better. If there’s going to be familial friction, that’s the kind to have! Here’s the deal, bring me your favorite stuffed animal or doll, the raggedy the better, and I will photograph it while you wait. Contact information is bellow. Also, if you have any stories connected with the stuffed animal, I’m interested in those, too—like the time Teddy came up missing, or the time Princess fell into the creek, or what Fuzzy meant to you. One-eyed toys, or toys with an ear or limb missing, are particularly touching. And if they’ve been bandaged together—so much the better! I will provide you with, free of

We instinctively distrust what we don’t understand. That’s a good instinct to have because complexity is the primary tool of the devious. It is also the tool of the overly detail-oriented person, what in modern jargon is called a policy wonk. I stress the qualifier “overly” here because to a certain point, being detail oriented is a good thing, a characteristic I happen to have and yes, I’m getting too detailed here, so back to my point. In order for a leader, particularly a U.S. president, to achieve lasting policy goals he needs to have a grand design that is easily understood. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama is a policy wonk. His overly complex plans are too detailed to be effectively promoted and complexity tends to be inefficient, particularly when lack of predictability is present for a policy that requires a high level of public participation. Such is the case with the Affordable Care Act. Of course, simplicity is not a virtue if the simple idea is simply wrong. For many decades, fiscal conservatives have been promoting the virtue of a balanced federal budget. That’s a good idea to promote but administration after administration, Republican and Democrat, failed to balance the budget. Out of frustration, some fiscal conservatives got too simple (and wrong) in their approach by promoting the idea that government, at least at the federal level, is a bad thing, thus the government shutdown. Many of the tea partiers were giddier at the start of the government shutdown than children who’ve been told that school was cancelled indefinitely. As the effects of the government shutdown became evident, the tea partiers were faced with the reality that they weren’t really anarchists. Most were not even true libertarians. As each controversial impact arose from the shutdown, the tea partiers tried to mitigate the effects in a piecemeal fashion, even staging illconceived publicity events designed to divert anger to the administration for refusing to accept piecemeal proposals.

By Ken Ross, Graphic-Advocate Editor

Afterwards, it was time for some tea party spokesman to get just slightly less simple and advocate a clear policy alternative to what they opposed. But no, they had nothing. Sometimes being simple is just simple-mindedness with maybe a bit of cowardice thrown in. So after the tea party defeat, Obama had an opportunity to consolidate his strength and mitigate looming catastrophe by forcing the hand of his opponents. He could have, at that point, acknowledged that implementation of the Affordable Care Act was not going smoothly and that he needed bipartisan cooperation if any national health care plan was going to work. That might mean starting from scratch and establishing goals that could be widely accepted. A referendum could be presented to Congress that: Every citizen, regardless of age, income or medical history, should have access to emergency medical services and ongoing critical or preventative care without imposing ruinous expense to any individual citizen or generating bad debt for hospitals and clinics. If that cannot be widely accepted as a starting point, then there is no reason to go forward. The simplest and ultimately the only way to achieve the goal is to establish a single payer plan. The beneficiaries besides the currently uninsured would be health care facilities and small businesses. Those entities would be relieved of an excessive burden and an atmosphere of uncertainty about the future. But Obama plowed ahead with his overly complex plan, one that might conceivably become operational but will eventually evolve into a single payer system. His other policy initiatives, gun reform and immigration reform, have too many moving parts. As

Puppy charge, a framable picture of your favorite stuffed toy; and, what I have in mind is, putting together at the end of next year, a calendar of these stuffed animals, with their story. If your stuffed animal makes the calendar (I’m anticipating a major response), I will give you the calendar. There may even be centerfold. Why am I doing this? I just like doing creative things. And it’s the time of year. Lots of stuffed toys are found poking their heads out of Christmas stockings, and cuddled

with children on Christmas Eve while Santa slides down the chimney. Tags on stuffed animals are particularly precious. I know my kids would often finger the tags on their stuffed animal, as they fell asleep. So, if your stuffed animal has a tag, don’t cut if off! The tag is a part of it’s feel, it’s personality, its memories; and the tag is photogenic. I’m struck by the love a child (or adult) bears a cherished toy. That love flows, quite easily onto a photograph—like sap from a maple tree in the dead of winter. So, bring me your tired, your poor, your yearning Teddies begging to be photographed. I’ll give them my best shot. Next year, I’m thinking of doing pets. Have a good story? Contact Curt Swarm at 1101 N. Perry St., Mt.

In the Dec. 11 article, “Fire destroys Lake City house” there was mention that Casey’s delivered hot chocolate and donuts to the firefighters who had battled a fire in subzero temperatures. The article failed to mention that Stewart Memorial Community Hospital had also brought coffee to the scene of the early morning fire. We apologize for the omission.

far as immigration reform, the only part that I would personally support is allowing easy citizenship for anyone who spent most of his or her childhood in the country and doesn’t know any other life than as an American. The plan approved by the Senate included billions of dollars in contracts for specifically named companies, a grostequely expensive fence all along our southern border, work visas for as many as 180,000 unskilled workers to drive down wages in an economy with too few jobs already and permanent residency for millions of immigrants here illegally. That is supposedly a composite of everybody’s wish list to make everyone happy. The simplest way to discourage illegal immigration would be harsh penalties for employers who hire them and denial of social programs to non-citizens. This has been referred to as self-deportation, supposedly an uglier form of deportation than taking people into custody and escorting them in restraints out of the country. I don’t get it. Taking apart gun reform and promoting the most acceptable portions, such as universal background checks, has been unsuccessful but that may be the approach most likely to succeed in the future. As long as we’re talking about reform, how about tax reform, making federal income tax simple enough that our society does not divert billions of hours of highly skilled work to tax preparation each year nor distort business practices because of the millions of words in our convoluted tax code. Neither Congress nor President Obama is accomplishing much of lasting value because they do not have a clear vision understood by each other or by the public, perhaps not even by themselves.

DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT This Agreement is entered into between Calhoun County, Iowa (the “County”) and Al’s Corner Oil Company (the “Developer”) as of the 3rd day of December, 2013 (the “Commencement Date”). WHEREAS, Chapter 403 of the Code of Iowa authorizes counties to establish urban renewal areas and to undertake economic development projects; and WHEREAS, the County has established the Calhoun County 2013 Urban Renewal Area (the “Urban Renewal Area”) and has adopted an urban renewal plan for the governance of projects and initiatives to be undertaken therein; and WHEREAS, the Developer has undertaken the development of a commercial truck stop in the Urban Renewal Area (the “Project”); and WHEREAS, the Project is to be situated on certain real property (the “Property”) located within the Urban Renewal Area, such Property being legally described on Exhibit A hereto; and WHEREAS, the costs of undertaking the Project will include the extension of electrical service to the Property, the digging of water supply wells on the Property and the installation of a sanitary septic system on the Property; and WHEREAS, Chapter 15A of the Code of Iowa authorizes counties to provide grants, loans, guarantees, tax incentives and other financial assistance to or for the benefit of private persons; and WHEREAS, the Developer has requested that the County provide certain financial incentives to the Developer in the form of economic development incremental property tax payments in an amount not to exceed $300,000; NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual obligations contained in this Agreement, the parties hereto agree as follows: A. Developer’s Covenants 1. The Developer agrees to construct the Project on the Property. Commencement began on September 1, 2013, and substantial completion will be accomplished by no later than June 1, 2014. Furthermore the Developer agrees to maintain the completed Project on the Property as an active commercial facility and as part of its business operations throughout the Term, as hereinafter defined. 2. The Developer agrees to ensure timely and full payment of all property taxes owed with respect to the Property and the Project throughout the Term and to submit to the County a receipt or cancelled check as evidence of each tax payment. 3. The Developer agrees to work with Calhoun County Rural Electric Cooperative to cause the extension of electric service to the Property. Furthermore, the Developer agrees to cause the digging of water supply wells and the installation of a sanitary septic system adequate to meet the sanitary and water needs of the completed Project. 4. The Developer hereby acknowledges that failure to comply with the provisions of this Section A will give the County the right to withhold some or all of the Payments, as hereinafter set forth in Section B. B. County’s Covenants In recognition of the Developer’s obligations set out above, the County agrees to make up to twenty-two semiannual economic development tax increment payments (the “Payments”) to the Developer due on each December 1 and June 1 in each fiscal year as hereinafter provided, pursuant to Chapters 15A and 403 of the Code of Iowa, provided however that the aggregate, total amount of the Payments shall not exceed Three Hundred Thousand ($300,000). A portion of the new taxable valuation resulting from the completed Project is expected to go on the property tax rolls as of January 1, 2014, accordingly, the Payments would be due on each December 1 and June 1 commencing December 1, 2015 and continuing to, and including, June 1, 2026, or until such

Each Payment shall be in an amount which represents 100% percent of the Incremental Property Tax Revenues available to the County with respect to the Property during the six months immediately preceding each Payment date.

The Payments shall not constitute general obligations of the County, but shall be made solely and only from the Incremental Property Tax Revenues to be received by the County from the Calhoun County Treasurer which are attributable to the Property, such incremental property taxes to be collected in a Subfund of the Urban Renewal Area Urban Renewal Tax Increment Revenue Fund to be designated the “Al’s Corner Oil Company Subfund”. The Al’s Corner Oil Company Subfund, and the Incremental Property Tax Revenues to be collected therein have been pledged by the County to the funding of the Payments hereunder. The County agrees to certify tax increment debt relative to this Agreement by December 1, 2014 in an amount equal to Three Hundred Thousand ($300,000). C. Administrative Provisions 1. This Agreement may not be amended or assigned by either party without the express permission of the other party. However, the County hereby gives its permission that the Developer’s rights to receive the Payments hereunder may be assigned by the Developer to a private lender, as security on borrowings made with respect to the Project, without further action on the part of the County. 2. The term (the “Term”) of this Agreement shall commence on the Commencement Date and shall continue until the date on which the final Payment is remitted by the County to the Developer as set forth in Section B above. 3. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors and assigns of the parties. 4. This Agreement shall be deemed to be a contract made under the laws of the State of Iowa and for all purposes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with laws of the State of Iowa. The County and the Developer have caused this Agreement to be signed, and the County’s seal to be affixed, in their names and on their behalf by their duly authorized officers, all as of the day and date written above.

The December meeting of the Adaza Thursday Club followed a dinner served by Moni Moran and Jane Beschorner in the Lohrville Library meeting room on the 5th. The hostesses were assisted by three good friends! The dining room was decorated for the holidays and the colors carried over into the adjacent Community Room where the displays were being set up for the Festival of Trees. The Adaza tree was a cluster of poinsettia plants. The members brought some items and also made donations for the food pantry. Greetings will be sent to friends at holiday time with a recap of our year’s activities. Martha Hennesy of Andover, MN, was at Liz Guess’ the first weekend of December. They went to the Friday night opening of the Festival of Trees in Lohrville. Vernon and Shirley Hamilton went to Manson Sunday Dec. 8th to watch grandson Dillon in a wrestling match. He won the 3rd place trophy. There were five from the Adaza and Churdan area at Greene County Historical Society’s December meeting the 1st Friday of the month at the Congregate Meal Site at Greenewood Center in Jefferson. After the meal Greene County High

School musicians entertained with seasonal music selections by piano, vocal groups and a flute quartet, students of Becky Greiner. As is the custom, all received a sack of popcorn from Don Coon. Liz Guess and Barbara Winkelman were in Rippey Saturday Dec. 7th for the breakfast served by Friends of Rippey. The Hamilton’s, Vernon and Shirley, Eugenia and her children, Raeann, Olivia and Dillon, were involved in the living nativity scene presented the morning of the 7th by the Paton Presbyterian Church members. The animals present were a donkey, sheep, chickens, doves, a miniature cow and rabbits, and some of these came from the Hamilton farm. Vernon and Dillon were shepherds, Olivia was Mary. Another family furnished a wall of baled straw that provided some protection from the cold breezes of the weather. A craft making table was available, also hot chocolate, coffee, cake and cookies. A Christmas wish from your ADAZA friends -- for goodwill and blessings to everyone! Anyone having an item for Adaza news may contact Pat Schmitt at 515-389-3737.


DECEMBER 18, 2013


We offer our sympathy to Hat Gidel and her family at the recent passing of her husband, Dale. Dale, who was involved in many community projects, served on the original Board of Directors responsible for the building of Sunnyview Independent Living. Thank you, Dale. One of the impressive things about the Golden Buckle Home Christmas party on Sunday evening, Dec. 8, was the fluffy blanket of snow. These feathery flakes had countless sparkles set off by the street lights. Another impressive thing about the party was that even though the entertainment group was unable to make it from out of town (the beautiful snow was treacherous), the party-attendees came up with their own entertainment. We sang -- under the direction of Renee Stauter and other members of the Golden Buckle Home Board of Directors who were in attendance. We sang Christmas carols, taking requests from the audience, a cappella. Audience participation was a key factor – it was fun! The Sunnyview staff would like to thank the Sunnyview residents for their gifts. Thank you to the GBH Board of Directors for putting on the Christmas party. Also, the Sunnyview staff would like to thank the Board of Directors for their gifts. There was plenty of pizza and fellowship. One star of the evening was a wee lad named Mason who was about three months old, the grandson of a Sunnyview staff member. Sunnyview was well-adorned for the party. Sandy and her crew (was it

Jana and Angie?) did a fine job. There are now four large Christmas trees throughout the building. Assembling the trees was not the end of it, of course. Next were the lights and then all the individual ornaments. Often there are other helpers who join in, and this year was no exception. Along with other decorations throughout the building, like wall hangings and table arrangements, the place is really done up. There are numerous nativity scenes on display, each unique, to remind us of the Christ Child. The TV Lounge is graced with a lovely tree (could it be Carene’s tree?), the southwest entry way is graced with a charming tree (could it be Marlene’s?) and many other touches abound. There is even a small colorful tree in the kitchen. Thank you to everyone who was involved with “decking the halls.” This year we missed the decorating input from Dee Harman, who worked for Sunnyview for over 35 years and passed away this past March. One morning several days ago, before the snow, freezing rain turned into a coating of ice that covered the roads, sidewalks, cars, and everything else. Travel was difficult. The next day the ice had vanished from the sidewalks, etc. Some of us were confused – had the temperatures risen into the 40s or 50s during the night, melted all of that ice, and then plummeted again by morning? We were told by reliable sources that the ice had actually “freeze dried.” This sounds rather mysterious -- what do you think?

My thought for the day is: The only blind person at Christmas time is he who has not Christmas in his heart. This was written by Helen Keller. The Trivia Question is: What Des Moines native was a regular on the Bob Newhart Show and I Dream of Jeannie? The Cookie Walk at the United Methodist Church was a success. Hope you all were able to attend and have coffee with friends. The Festival of Trees was great, such Creativity Thanks to everyone that brought a tree or another item to share with the community and to those who attended. A really big THANK YOU to United Bank for the Open House and the food. I think maybe a thankyou is due to Nila for fixing the food which was terrific. I had the pleasure to sit at the Festival and making sure that all was well on Saturday. The Kick Off for Christmas was so nice with caroling, food, games, craft making and of course Santa’s visit. Thanks to all who made it happen.

The Lohrville community was saddened by the passing of Larry Hood, he was a former Calhoun County Supervisor and did a good job. He will be missed. Our sympathies go out to the Hood family and Larry’s friends. Our sympathies go to the family of Gerald Dial, husband of former Lohrville resident Alice Ann Runquist. I’m sure he will also be missed. Gene McGrail passed away this past week. There never was a happier guy than Gene and he will be truly missed. On Wednesday the Reading group at the JJHands Library frosted cookies as their activity and gave each one of the Coffee Group one of their handiwork which was delicious Thank you one and all. Hope Santa brings you some of the things you want. The answer to the Trivia Question is Bill Daly and he was funny. Anyone having an item for Lohrville news may contact Bette Knapp at 712-465-3295.

Christmas is such a special time of year. We have been busy trying to make Christmas special for each and every resident at Sunny Knoll. This past Sunday we were thankful to have the Catholic Church come and sing carols for us. Bill and Linda Haeder along with Neil and Karen Blaas joined in as well. What beautiful voices! Sunday we also had the Garfield Gleamers 4-H Club join us. They had made Christmas pillow cases and had put special gifts in for each of our residents to enjoy.

sang a few Christmas carols. You should stop in and see our door they look fabulous! Thanks for your time girls. We also had a visit from the Augustana Lutheran Church out of Manson. The ladies came and sang Christmas carols and delivered goodies. Wow what a busy week, as we were also trying to finish our snowmen. We took landscaping bricks and painted several coats of white paint on them, added a cute little face and clothes. They turned out so nice. We also started making Christmas goodies for our upcoming Christmas party. We made homemade cream cheese mints, homemade peanut butter balls and decorated cut-out cookies. We had more fun sampling I think! Stop in and see all the fun things we are up to! Jennifer Roberts, Activity Director.

Iowans Rely on Do Not Call Registry

In a recent report issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Iowa ranked high in the percentage of residents who take advantage of the Do Not Call Registry. Iowa was 12th in the nation with 78% of personal phone numbers registered! Iowa’s Senior Medicare Patrol recommends that you register your number today. (Maybe next year we can be tops in the country!) Call 1-888-382-1222 or visit www. If you call, you must do so from the number you want to register. You can register up to three personal phone numbers and your registration does not expire. After you’ve been registered 31 days, telemarketers are not allowed to make sales calls to you.

that called you. Although the Registry does not stop political, charity or survey calls there is a solution to those unwanted calls, too. You have the right to ask the political organization, charity or survey caller to place your number on their organization’s do not call list. Make a note of when you make this request and to which organizations. Registering your phone number or telling the organization or business not to call your number, gives you the right to file a complaint if they do call you. Use the notes you took about the dates and callers. It is very important to file complaints because money talks and if the FTC receives complaints they can fine the organizations. You can file a complaint at the phone number and web address listed earlier. Join your wise friends and neighbors who’ve already registered their numbers. When you start enjoying getting fewer annoying calls, you’ll also be able to spot a scam caller more easily! The sources of information for this article are “FY
