Deck the hallsâ€Ś Klemme man helps decorate the White House By Sarah Freesemann KLEMME - The saying â€˜like a kid in a candy storeâ€™ is exactly how Randy Black of Klemme chose to describe his experience at the White House. Black was one of 83 volunteer designers selected from across the country to help decorate 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue this Christmas season. He spent a week in D.C. and returned home on Saturday, Dec. 7. â€œIt is definitely something on every designers bucket list,â€? said Black, a former floral manager at HyVee East in Mason City. â€œTo decorate the highest house in the land
is such an honor and experience.â€? Randy has been designing for over 35 years and was very honored to receive a letter this past summer informing him that he had been nominated to decorate the White House this Christmas. â€œSix to seven people across the state had nominated me,â€? noted Black. â€œOnce I received the letter it was like applying for a job.â€? Black had to submit his resume, specific lists of qualifications and experiences along with letters of recommendation. â€œOnce I received my letter

informing me that I had been accepted, I had to go through a large series of background checks. I eventually got my security clearance and a dream was coming true.â€? Black joined the other volunteer designers and design team from HGTV after Thanksgiving and spent the next week working on bringing the Christmas Spirit alive within the White House. HGTVâ€™s host, Genevieve Gorder, worked along with the volunteers. The episode aired Sunday, Dec. 14. â€œIt was exciting to see the show come together because the cameras
were there all week and they shot a lot of footage.â€? The theme for this yearâ€™s White House Christmas is â€œGather Aroundâ€? which celebrates the stories and traditions of the season and coming together with loved ones. This yearâ€™s decorations also honor military personnel and families. Black said they decorated 30+ fresh Christmas trees ranging from 7 to 18 in height with an average height of 14 feet. They also worked with fresh garlands, wreaths and a variety of amazing decorations. â€œI was nicknamed the â€œbow guyâ€?
and it was a breath-taking experience that is so memorable,â€? he said. Some of the volunteers he worked with have been doing this for years. â€œOne guy has been decorating the White House for over 30 years now,â€? Black said. â€œThis has really opened the door of opportunity for me and I plan on applying every year for as many years as possible.â€? â€œI truly felt like a wide-eyed kid in the candy store. This is the designerâ€™s equivalence to that expression.â€?
Hancock County farmland values reach estimated $9,884 AMES â€” Average Iowa farmland value is estimated to be $8,716 per acre, an increase of 5.1 percent from 2012, according to results of the Iowa Land Value Survey conducted in November. Values increased in 2013 for the fourth year in a row and achieved historic peaks. The increase is similar to results of other recent Iowa farmland value surveys, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Iowa Chapter of the Realtors Land Institute surveys. According to the survey, and value of farmland in Hancock County rose 1.49 percent in 2013. The average price per acre in 2013 is $9,884 compared to $9,739 in 2012. By crop reporting district, land values in the North Central district were up 2.7 percent an average price per acre of $9,818. The district includes Hancock, Kossuth, Winnebago, Worth, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Wright, Franklin and Butler. Scott County, with an estimated $12,413 average value for all farmland, saw the highest average county values in the Iowa State survey. Scott County also had the highest percentage increase and highest increase in value, 12.45 percent and $1,374 respectively, of the 99 Iowa counties. The Northwest Crop Reporting District reported the highest land values at $10,960, which was a
decrease of $445 (3.9 percent) from 2012. Oâ€™Brien County showed the highest dollar decrease in 2013 of $478. Osceola, Dickinson and Lyon counties along with Oâ€™Brien County all shared the greatest percentage decrease in 2013, with 3.72 percent. â€œThe 2013 land value survey shows a market in flux, with strong and weak price sales occurring at the same time,â€? said Michael Duffy, Iowa State economics professor and extension farm management economist who conducts the survey. â€œThe key question is if this shows the market is going to settle, if it is just pausing before another takeoff in values, or if the market has peaked and due for a correction.â€? Have Iowa land values peaked? Duffy said examining some causes for the current increase in farmland values and the reactions is helpful in assessing the situation. Farmland values are highly correlated with gross farm income. A majority of the survey respondents were concerned about income. Over three-fourths, 76 percent, of the respondents cited lower commodity prices as a negative factor affecting the land markets. Data show the rate of increase in land values slowed and commodity prices started dropping after June 2013. Iowa corn and soybean price
movements are good indicators of gross farm income movement. There was a 33 percent drop in the Iowa average corn price from October 2012 to October 2013 and there was an 11 percent drop in soybean prices over the same time period. The November estimated price for Iowa corn was 39 percent lower than the November 2012 price. Soybean prices were 11 percent lower. There are many competing forces that will influence prices over the coming years. The Iowa State economist goes on to say, for now it appears there are more factors that will lead to lower prices as opposed to returning to levels of the past few years. â€œFarm income is a strong indicator for the direction land values will go, but there are other factors as well,â€? Duffy said. â€œInterest rates remain low, but the percent of respondents who reported less sales than in 2012 was the highest itâ€™s been since 1985. The odds are against a major collapse in land values. But, if projections of a new lower level for commodity prices hold, then Duffy believes we should expect land values to drop. The economist said many respondents commented that the current situation might be a plateau. Overview of 2013 Iowa land values While the highest county land values Continued on page 2.

Did you know? Many Christmas traditions are older than some celebrants might think. The tradition of lighting up a Christmas tree, for example, dates back to the days before Christmas lights. Before electricpowered twinkle lights were invented and even before electricity was discovered, people used actual candles to adorn the Christmas tree. As one can imagine, having an open flame next to a dried-out tree was risky, so it was customary to keep a bucket of water next to the tree in the case of fire. As if fire wasn't enough, the tinsel used to decorate trees was made from strips of silver and even lead -- something that is now known to be a health hazard to adults and children alike. Although we've come a long way since candles and lead, even now trees that are overly dry and decorated with lights that have frayed wires can just as easily lead to fires. Plus, plastic tinsel can be a choking hazard for children and pets. One Christmas staple that has lost its status as a safety hazard isthe poinsettia plant. It has long been thought that poinsettias are poisonous to people and animals. While there is some toxicity to the plant, it would require the ingestion of hundreds of leaves to get a toxic dose of a plant's poison. According to the American Automobile Association 2012/13 Year-End Holidays Travel Forecast, holiday travel has experienced a steady increase in volume over the last half-decade. Despite the cost of travel, travel volumes have traditionally remained very stable, with only one yearly volume change of 5 percent or greater, which was a 5 percent decline in the 2007/2008 season from a year earlier. One possible reason behind the steady nature of the end-ofyear holiday travel season is the season's length. It remains the longest holiday season of the year, affording travelers more chances to visit friends and family members and/or go on vacations.

Britt Medical Clinic 641-843-5050
The Kanawha Reporter, Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013
Marcia Ring, PhD, ARNP, Behavioral Medicine provider for Hancock County Health System at the Britt and Garner Medical Clinics has outlined six easy things you can do now that can change your outlook on the holidays. 1. Release yourself and others of expectations. 2. Gratitude. 3. Forgiveness of self and others. 4. Surrender. 5. Compassion. 6. Give what you want to receive. Last week, I discussed step #1 and this week Iâ€™ll review steps #2 and #3. Remember, gather a pen and some paper, or a notebook to write down your thoughts and feelings. Step 2. Gratitude. Gratitude is said to be a feeling that opens the heart. Everyone can find something to be grateful for no matter how hard life has been. Even if you can only think of three things you are grateful for, write them down. Think about these things during your day. Do this step every day. It is okay if you write out the same three things you feel grateful for on a daily basis but if you can think of more than three things, write them down. Step 3. Forgiveness of Self and others. Forgiveness is not the same as forgetting. Forgiveness does not mean things go back to being the way they were before, because that is not really possible. Forgiveness means we no longer hold our anger in about what happened. We let go of the grudge and the feeling that the person(s) who hurt us should be punished. Anger can be very destructive even if we hold it in. Science understands more and more about the connection between the mind and the body. Holding anger in,
even if we donâ€™t think about it for a long time, can make us physically ill. We know that expressing anger can be very damaging to others. Holding anger in and not forgiving others can hurt us. So forgiveness is done for you, not for the person who hurt you. Out loud, and written down say the following, â€œI forgive fill in the NAME for what he did/said to me. I release all the anger I am holding inside.â€? If feelings arise, write them down. The point of this step is get the old anger up and out of you. Sometimes, we are deeply upset with ourselves for past things we did or did not do. It can be so helpful to forgive yourself. I have found that in the moment, we do the best we can. We cannot use hindsight to judge old actions because if we could have done things better, we would have. Out loud, and written down say the following, â€œI forgive myself for what I did/said to fill in the NAME. I release all the anger I am holding inside towards myself.â€? If you find yourself becoming so upset that you cannot do your normal daily routine, please seek out help with your health care provider. Add each step together with the previous steps and write down your thoughts and feelings. By the time we have covered all six steps, you will have a powerful program of self-help that you can do anywhere, anytime, about any issue. Teenagers can use these steps as well. If you would like to submit a healthcare question, visit www. trustHCHS.com and select Contact Us at the bottom of the home page or call 641-843-5150.

â€˜Tis the season for sharing ... our germs (MS) -- The hustle and bustle of holiday celebrations will soon be upon us. The office parties are already in full swing and storefront windows are all decked out in holiday glitz. Your Christmas lights and decorations are up and all that is left to do is entertain family and friends. This time of year can be wonderful, but it also brings a certain amount of stress. The last-minute shopping, family visits, kids running around the house and over-crowded shopping centres is exhausting just to think about. All of that added stress also can affect your immune system. Hugs and handshakes represent golden opportunities for viruses, parasites and bacteria to join in the spirit of Holiday sharing. You wonder how you will ever make it through the season without catching something. And then you may ask yourself: Can probiotics really boost my immune system? The answer is yes. According to dietitian and nutritionist Annie Jolicoeur, many clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of probiotics in terms of preventing and treating the common cold, the flu and gastroenteritis. "Taking probiotics reduces the severity and duration of symptoms like fever, coughing, runny nose, and even diarrhea," explains Jolicoeur. "Therefore, it is recommended that all members of the family take probiotics every day." Jolicoeur recommends Probaclac as the ideal solution since it provides probiotic complexes that are designed specifically for every age group: children up to the age of 15; adults (can be taken from the age of 15); and older adults (age 50 and up). Maintaining a healthy intestinal flora helps to protect against the penetration of bacteria, parasites, and viruses, Jolicoeur advised. "Did you know that the intestinal mucous membrane acts as the 'cornerstone' of your overall health? Two-thirds of the immune-defence cells in your body are found there. Therefore, your immune system is enhanced when you take probiotics."

December gives us a chance to close the books on 2013. As I look back on the past year and review what the Legislature was able to come together and accomplish, I am pleased about the strong bi-partisan work that was done to strengthen middle class. Plenty of attention is given to big pieces of legislation but there are less talked about initiatives that have a significant impact on our state. Even if they do not grab headlines, these things contribute to our efforts to increase opportunities for Iowans. This year we focused on empowering the next generation of Iowans by investing in education. We enabled the ability to create entrepreneurial education accounts so that students can develop skills related to starting and running a business. We fought to keep college education accessible by freezing tuition at our state universities. That is something that had not happened in decades. We also had a number of items that should help ensure there are opportunities for young Iowans to stay here. The beginning farmer program was expanded to help the next generation continue the legacy of agricultural leadership in Iowa. A targeted small business program will make microloans available to the small businesses that are the backbone of our communities and
engines of growth. To increase opportunities for todayâ€™s workers, we must address the skills gap. This year we provided over $10 million for new initiatives that offer education and training for Iowaâ€™s workers. This investment will help Iowans get the training they need to access new careers. The more progress we make in developing a skilled workforce, the more we will enable job growth and high-paying careers. Too often I hear from a company who wants to hire but is having trouble finding qualified workers to fill the job. When the problem becomes more serious, a business owner can feel like they need to move the jobs out of the state. We need to make sure that does not happen. Investing in better-educated graduates and better-trained adults is a smart way to let everyone know that Iowa is committed to providing the best workforce in the country. When we do that, opportunities in communities large and small with abound. Those opportunities are critical to strengthening our middle class and must always be a focus for us in the Legislature.

From time to time as Christmas approaches, I love to pull out one of my sonsâ€™ board books and read it to them. The book, written by Joseph Slate entitled â€œWho is Coming To Our House,â€? gives a glimpse of what happened in the barn over 2,000 years ago. â€œWho is coming to our house?â€? â€œSomeone, someone,â€? says Mouse. Who is that someone? As Christmas approaches just a few short days ahead Iâ€™ll recite Matthew 1:18-2:12 of the New International Version. This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, â€œJoseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.â€? All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: â€œThe virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuelâ€?--which means, â€œGod with us.â€? When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus. After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, â€œWhere is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.â€? When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the peopleâ€™s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them
where the Christ was to be born. â€œIn Bethlehem in Judea,â€? they replied, â€œfor this is what the prophet has written: â€œâ€™But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.â€™â€? Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, â€œGo and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.â€? After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route. When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. â€œGet up,â€? he said, â€œtake the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.â€? So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: â€œOut of Egypt I called my son.â€? When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: â€œA voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.â€? After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, â€œGet up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the childâ€™s life are dead.â€? So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel. But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to
go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee, and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets: â€œHe will be called a Nazarene.â€? While Iâ€™ve recited these words from the Bible to our readers for the past several years, Iâ€™d like to share something that my wife, Jill, has started this year with our two young children. Philip, age 7, and Benjamin, age 5, are just beginning to understand the meaning of Christmas. As we discuss Jesus at home with our children, we remind them that Christmas isnâ€™t just about the gifts under the Christmas Tree, nor is it just about the Christmas music playing on the radio, itâ€™s truly about Jesusâ€™ birthday. Like recent years, again this year my wife has decided, along with our kids, to make a birthday cake for Jesus. The cake will be treated just like any other birthday cake. Itâ€™ll be loaded with frosting, sprinkles as the kids help her decorate it, and of course a few candles. It got me to thinking about how truly important this tradition can become. The idea of decorating a cake, putting on the frosting and sprinkles, along with the candles will help to ingrain in our kids how truly important it is to remember Jesus, not just at our traditional candlelight services, but by celebrating at home with each other. We make a cake for all of our family members as their birthdays arrive each year, why shouldnâ€™t we celebrate with cake on Christmas, too? Jesus is a part of our family, too. And so back, to Slateâ€™s bookâ€Ś. â€œWho is coming to our house?â€? â€œMary and Joseph,â€? whispers Mouse. â€œWelcome, welcome to our house.â€? Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you, our loyal readers. My family and I would like to wish you nothing but the best of health and good will in 2014.

The holidays have come and gone, and now it is time to pack away the decorations and retire the tree for another season. It's also time to decide what to do with the dozens of greeting cards that arrived in the mail over the last few months. According to the Greeting Card Association, around seven billion greeting cards are sold each year. Estimates suggest that roughly two billion are holiday cards that will be sent during the month of December. These cards frequently hold sentimental value. Tossing them into the trash is wasteful, and some people would rather repurpose them into something that is meaningful and creative. Many crafts, gifts and even boxes can be made from recycled Christmas cards and other greetings. With a little ingenuity and effort, it's possible to create eye-catching items. Here are just a few ideas. * Cut the front panels off of the cards -- the part with the decoration -- and save them in an envelope for next year. When wrapping presents, use the cards as your gift tags. * Use the front panels of cards as ornaments. Use stencils and cookie cutters to trace patterns and cut them out. Punch a hole into the top of each cut-out and attach a string to hang on a tree. * Cut the card into strips and then laminate or cover in clear contact paper. Punch a hole in the top and at-
tach a tassel. These can be used as bookmarks. * Use cards to form paper angels that can serve as table centerpieces next year. With a few embellishments, like yarn hair and pipe-cleaner halos, these can make for some cheerful additions to your holiday decor. * Decorate inexpensive gift bags or brown paper bags with pieces of cut-up greeting cards. Now you have inexpensive wrapping materials for gifts that are also environmentally conscious. * Gather the fronts of many cards and punch holes along the edges. Use yarn to sew each card to another, creating a Christmas tapestry, place mats or other creative ideas for decorating. * Photo cards are popular greetings for the holidays. Cut out the images of families and friends from the cards and make a collage to be saved. You can look back each year and see how children have grown or fashions have changed. * Use pieces of the Christmas cards to decoupage wooden or paper boxes. Then these boxes can be given as gifts for the holidays. * Create drink coasters or trivets by cutting images out of the Christmas cards. Laminate the images and attach them to cork to serve as coasters. For trivets, attach images to ceramic tiles and then coat in a heatresistant shellac.
Simple ways to curtail holiday spending The holiday season is synonymous with many things, including spending. Spending money is an accepted part of the season for many celebrants, who exchange gifts with loved ones, travel to see family and friends and host holiday parties this time of year. None of those things comes without a cost, and for some consumers, curtailing those costs is an early New Year's resolution. Part of the danger of holiday spending is that many consumers are already in debt before the season even begins. In a holiday report issued prior to the 2012 holiday season, TransUnion, one of the three main credit reporting agencies, noted that the average credit card debt per buyer in the United States was just under $5,000. That means the average consumer began last holiday season having already accrued a significant amount of credit card debt. Though it might seem impossible to rein in holiday spending, there are ways consumers can do just that and still enjoy a festive holiday season. * Propose a gift exchange. Many families exchange gifts during the holidays, but there are ways to make such exchanges less expensive. Instead of a traditional exchange in which every member of the family buys a gift for everyone else, propose an exchange in which family members pick names out of a hat and only buy a gift for the person whose name they draw. This saves shoppers time and money, and families still get to enjoy the thrill of putting a smile on a loved one's face. * Don't purchase extended warranties. Big-ticket items like televisions and other household appliances make for popular gifts come the holiday season. When purchasing such items,

shoppers are often asked by a salesperson if they want to purchase an extended warranty. In theory, extending the warranty seems like a great idea, acting as a safety blanket should something happen to the item down the road. But many appliances already come with a manufacturer's warranty, and extended warranties often just duplicate coverage already provided by the manufacturer. Some might still be hesitant to pass on the extended warranty, but it's important to know that many extended warranties often defer to the manufacturer's warranty, so you may very well be paying, and paying a lot, for something you are unlikely to ever use. * Only buy gifts for children. For many adults, the joy of the holiday season comes not from receiving gifts but from the opportunities to spend time with family and friends. So rather than buying adult friends and relatives gifts, propose that adults only buy gifts for the kids in the family. This saves adults time and money, and the youngsters still get the joy of unwrapping gifts come the holiday season. * Avoid signing up for store credit cards. When shopping at major retailers, consumers are often asked if they
want to sign up for store credit cards, an offer that seems all the more enticing when store representatives dangle an immediate discount between 10 and 20 percent just for signing up. Though it might seem like a great deal, instantly earning as much as 20 percent off your purchase, signing up for store credit cards is not always in consumer's best interests. That's because store credit cards tend to come with steep interest rates, meaning consumers must be able to pay off their balances immediately, or they will be forced to pay interest charges that could dwarf the initial savings earned upon signing up for the card. * Give gift cards. Gift cards may seem impersonal, but they can save shoppers money while allowing recipients to truly get something they want. Shoppers on strict budgets can purchase a gift card that fits into that budget, removing the temptation to spend a few extra dollars when they find the perfect gift that costs a few dollars more than they had initially budgeted. In addition, gift cards are great for distant relatives, as they can be included in greeting cards, saving the added expense of shipping.

Finding time during the busy holiday season Perhaps no time of year is as busy as the holiday season, when social engagements and holiday shopping combine to dominate so much of what is normally our free time. Additionally, holiday travel and late nights spent at work to make up for lost time also cut into our free time, leaving many people in search of ways to add more hours to the day. Though there's no way to make a day last longer, there are ways to save some time this holiday season. * Go it alone. Holiday shopping can be very time consuming, but shoppers who decide to shop alone may find themselves more productive and focused on the task at hand. Rather than going from store to store and checking items off multiple shopping lists, shoppers who shop singularly can devote all of their attention to their own lists. * Shop online. Another way to save time when shopping for the holidays is to shop online. This saves you the time it takes to drive to and from the mall and walk around multiple stores, all the while saving you from the often frustrating and time-consuming experience of finding a parking space. In addition, you can shop online at any time of day. So rather than just eating lunch at your desk on your lunch hour or spending the last hour before you go to bed for the night idling away on the couch, you can make more efficient use of that time by doing some holiday shopping. * Plan ahead. Whether shopping for holiday gifts, taking the family to buy a Christmas tree or organizing a holiday dinner with friends, the more you can plan ahead of the holiday season the less time you will waste once the season hits full swing. For example, when choosing a weekend to go Christmas tree shopping, inform others a few
weeks in advance and let them know you want to go early to avoid crowds. This saves you time and might just help you land one of the best trees on the lot. The same principle of planning can be applied to other aspects of the holiday season as well. Planning a meal early allows you to gradually stock up on menu items, saving you the hassle of rushing to the store at the last minute or planning a menu in the days before the party when you will already have enough on your plate. * Don't shy away from shortcuts when hosting holiday dinners. Hosting a holiday dinner is a big undertaking, one that often finds hosts spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen. But hosts can save time by taking some shortcuts regarding the menu. For instance, when hosting an especially large meal, don't be afraid to buy some premade side dishes from a local grocery store or buy a bakery cake rather than whipping up your own homemade dessert. Guests will understand if you cut some corners in an effort to save some time, and the food will likely be just as delicious. * Stay home. Travel is a big commitment come the holiday season, but what about staying home this season? If the time commitment of traveling is something you truly want to avoid this year, invite some friends and family over to your home instead. You might be more busy on the day of the holiday, but you will save yourself the travel days you usually build into the holiday season. Parents of young children might prefer to stay home so they can create their own unique holiday memories, while those without children might just appreciate some peace and quiet during this hectic time of year.

Lady Eagles struggle to pick up a road win The West Hancock girls’ basketball team was unable to pick up a win last week as the Eagles dropped games to West Fork, GHV and Osage all on the road. The Eagles opened their week against West Fork where they fell behind early 8-22. Unable to shift the momentum in the second, West Hancock added eight more points while the War Hawks sank 15 to lead the Eagles 37-16 at the break. West Hancock returned to add just five points in the third as West Fork extended their lead to 58-21. The Eagles finished out the final minutes with 10 points to fall 31-70. Maria Gonzalez led at the basket with 11 points, Bailey Eisenman followed with six. Kealey Johnson and Cara Francis each collected seven rebounds, while Emma Chizek
brought in five. Emily Leerar stole twice for the Eagles. West Hancock opened their North Iowa Conference schedule the next night against Garner Hayfield Ventura. The Eagles trailed 9-18 after the first and 21-33 at the break. Down just 12 points the Eagles hoped for a comeback quarter, but unfortunately went on to score just three in the third and six in the final quarter to fall 30-66 to the Cardinals. Gonzalez led with eight points, Faith Hammer added seven, Johnson six and Eisenman five. Eisenman won the rebound eight times to lead the Eagles, while Johnson and Chizek each secured six. Hammer and Eisenman each dished out two assists, while Gonzalez earned four steals.
The Eagles wrapped up their week with another NIC match-up against Osage last Friday. West Hancock suffered a slow first quarter, 2-18, but quickly regrouped fin the second to sink 17 points to the Green Devils’ nine. The Eagles trailed 20-27 at the half. Unable to outscore Osage in the third or fourth quarters the Eagles eventually fell 3755. Leerar led the team with eight points, while Hammer followed with seven. West Hancock (1-5, 0-2) played BelmondKlemme on the road Tuesday and will return to action after the Holiday break Monday, January 6 against North Union in Swea City.

West Hancock boys move to 4-2 overall The West Hancock boys’ basketball team moved to 4-2 overall after the second week of regular season action. The Eagles suffered their first two loses last week, but finished with an NIC win over Osage on the road 54-47. The Eagles dropped their conference opener against GHV last Tuesday 61-87, after suffering their first loss to West Fork the night before 63-82. West Hancock opened their week against West Fork on the road where they fell behind early, 9-33, after the first quarter. The Eagles momentum shifted in the second quarter, as West Hancock sank 20 points to head into the half down 29-47. Both teams earned 16 points in the third, but West Fork was able to keep up their pace in the final minutes to add 19 points to the Eagles 18 and secure the win over West Hancock, 63-82. Ricardo Ibarra led the Eagles with 15 points. Trevor Nalan and Connor Sonius each added 11, while Nate Paulus chipped in 10 and Jacob Hejlik eight.
Hejlik led under the boards with eight rebounds, Nelson Barraca pulled in four. Sonius dished out six assists and reached for four steals. After their first loss, the Eagles quickly shifted their attention to their North Iowa Conference opener the next night against the Cardinals of GHV. West Hancock headed the short 11 miles East to Garner where they fell to the Cardinals 61-87. The Eagles trailed 19-30 after the first and 3245 at the half. Unable to have a breakout second half, West Hancock continued to trail GHV after the third 48-70.

The Eagles and Green Devils stayed within four points of one another through the first half with the Eagles trailing 8-12 and 18-22. A strong Eagle third quarter would boost West Hancock ahead of Osage by 10, 41-31. Both teams battled it out in the fourth quarter, with Osage outscoring West Hancock 16-13, but it would not be enough to snatch the win from the Eagles as the red and white prevailed 54-47. Nalan led at the hoop with 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Sonius added 14 points and eight boards. Paulus sank 13 points for the Eagles, Nelson and Jordan Savoy each secured seven rebounds.
