Career Academies promoted By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Career academies for high schools throughout the area served by Iowa Central Community College is a goal of ICCC President Dr. Dan Kinney. During discussion following an economic development panel session recently in Fort Dodge, arranged by State Senator Daryl Beall, Kinney said, “We have group of superintendents in the Calhoun County area that have been talking and they are further along now than we were on this matter.” Kinney noted that he along with area school officials had recently been on a trip to Monticello, Iowa, to an established career academy operated by Kirkwood Community College. (At a past school board meeting, SCC Board Member Ron Maulsby, SCC Supt. Jeff Kruse and SCCHS Principal Randy Martin described that visit). Beall asked why existing facilities, such as ICCC in Fort Dodge could not serve as dual credit vocational education centers. “If you get much over 25 miles, it gets difficult to get the kids there and get them back,” Kinney said. Kinney described participation as the busses from area high schools arriving before 8:30 a.m. The students would be there for three hours and then need to get on buses to get them back to their high school for lunch and regular classes. That would be the morning session. Potentially there could be an afternoon session for other students who have morning classes at high school to spend three hours in the afternoon at the career academy. Existing buildings often are not designed to meet the needs of vocational education. “What small rural communities have are grade schools. Grade schools don’t have shop space. To do the classroom stuff is easy but having shop classes that are needed

in a career academy is difficult,” Kinney said. Plans are further along for a career academy in Eagle Grove than for anything in Calhoun County. In the case of Eagle Grove, an old National Guard armory has plenty of space for shop programs. “The Eagle Grove site is going to incorporate Eagle Grove, Webster City, Fort Dodge, St. Edmunds and Clarion-Goldfield,” Kinney said. Regarding the Calhoun County area, Kinney said a facility would probably need to be built from scratch. When asked whether the Hwy 20 and Hwy 4 interchange be a good location, (as suggested during an SCC school board meeting by board member Ron Maulsby), Kinney said that seemed like a good location. He said, “The one down there would need to serve SCC, Manson NWW, Prairie Valley, maybe Southeast Webster. Jefferson may be a hard location to serve because they are further south. Unfortunately, I don’t have the 7 to 8 million dollars in my pocket to get that built.” Kinney suggested that a bond issue might be needed. “That may be coming sooner rather than later,” he said. Beall brought in State Senator Bill Dotzier into the conversation. Dotzier chairs the House-Senate Joint Economic Development Budget Sub-Committee. “How do we make this happen?” Beall asked. Dotzier was optimistic that perhaps some state funding for such a project might be found although there might still need to be a bond or other source of locally generated funds. Dotzier said, “The thing about career academies is that you get the business community involved. It’s relevant learning and young people can see an impact right away.” “You’ll be hearing more about this,” Kinney promised.


Hwy 20; education top development goals By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Economic Development in rural Iowa was the focus of a recent town hall meeting on the east Fort Dodge campus of Iowa Central Community College. The conference was arranged by State Senator Daryl Beall (Fort Dodge) with panelists Beall, ICCC President Dr. Dan Kinney, State Senator Bill Dotzier (Waterloo) and State Senator Steve Sodders (State Center). Dotzier chairs the House-Senate Joint Economic Development Budget Sub-Committee. Sodders serves as the Iowa Senate President Pro Tem and chairs the Senate Economic growth committee. Audience members came from several counties, representing economic development organizations, county and municipal government and news organizations. Among those present were Pam Anderson of Calhoun County Economic Development Corporation and Gary Nicholson of the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors. Much of the discussion was on how to move forward on completion of the four-lane upgrade of Highway 20 at an estimated completion cost of $350 million that would make

(Graphic-Advocate photo by Ken Ross) Highway 20 part of the national interstate highway network. There was a consensus expressed at the meeting that this should be a priority for the state. Dennis Plautz of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, said, “I know you’ve seen a map of areas that are 20 miles or more away from a four-lane. We took that map and overlaid a map of the 10 highest population loss counties in Iowa in the 2010 census. All 10 are identical to the bubble map of areas that are 20 miles or more from a four-

lane highway. Understanding the idea that economic development is related to transportation is as simple as looking at a map.” Sen. Dotzler noted that he has supported an increase in the gas tax to move transportation projects further. He said, “Unfortunately, the governor has been all over the map on this one.” Another topic of conversation was education, particularly the community colleges’ role in providing the skills that businesses are looking for in a work force. After

the regular session, this reporter talked with Dr. Kinney about career academies for vocational education of high school students, particularly the potential for creating one in Calhoun County (see separate article). There was also discussion regarding Tax Increment Financing and Enterprise Zones as tools for local government to promote economic growth.

Jefferson casino to provide grants to neighboring counties By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Nonprofit organizations in Calhoun County will have a potential grant opportunity if a casino is built in Jefferson as planned, according to Greene County Supervisor Guy Richardson. Richardson promoted a referendum that passed in August. This clears the way for a casino in Jefferson if the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission approves plans by Wild Rose Casinos for a 20,000-square-foot casino and entertainment resort with a convention center, sports bar, restaurant and 70room hotel. The gaming commission will announce its decision in January. Richardson said that if approved, ground will be broken as soon as possible with the facility opening in 2015. Under state law, a portion of a casino’s revenue goes to a foundation for distribution to non-profit organizations within that county in a competitive grant application process that involves organizations submitting specific spending proposals to the foundation. A smaller portion goes to a statewide

organization that distributes funds to foundations in each of the counties where no gaming license has been issued on a per-capita basis. These foundations in non-gaming counties distribute grants in the same way gaming county foundations do although the amount is smaller in nongaming counties than in gaming counties. The Wild Rose Casino has stated in its gaming license proposal that a higher percentage of revenue than state law requires will be diverted to foundation programs. The extra money goes to a third category of foundation grants. This third category will provide grants to organizations in the counties surrounding Greene County, including Calhoun, Webster, Carroll, Boone, Guthrie and Dallas. Richardson noted that this extra money will not result in any loss from the statewide organization that distributes foundation money to non-gaming counties. Richardson said that each grant application in the surrounding counties will be evaluated on its own merit, not necessarily distributed evenly among the six neighboring counties.

2 The Graphic-Advocate COMMENTARY

January 1, 2014

The worst media malfeasance of the century

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm

Thank You Note A Day A thank you note a day, keeps the doctor away! Last week I wrote about a woman who has been writing to a pen pal in Australia for 77 years. Seems like letter writing runs in the family. One of her daughters, Cindy Rupe, took on the unique task/ pleasure of writing a thank you note a day for nine months. Yep. Cindy teaches second grade at James Elementary School in Ottumwa. She got the idea of the daily thank you notes from an article she read by John Kralik, “365 Days of Gratitude.” Contrary to Kralik, who began the daily letter writing out of desperation—his life was spiraling downward—Cindy’s life was just the opposite. She is a naturally happy, positive person, with a wonderful, loving family. The beautiful two-story farmhouse they live in outside of Blandensburg will be one-hundred years old this year. It’s like a Hobby Lobby house, with the walls decorated with positive sayings like “Bless this home with love and laughter!” (It is.) “Peace and Grace be unto this Place” (It radiates.) “Do one thing everyday that makes you happy!” (She does— her family does!). Cindy started her thank-you-aday note writing on Thanksgiving two years ago. She made a list of 25 people she wanted to express thanks to and started in. These were friends, family members, acquaintances, people she worked with, church friends and leaders—most anyone she had come in contact with. Cindy radiates positive feelings and receives them back. Sometimes these thank you notes were simply gratitude for being her friend, or a thank you for services rendered, or gratitude for that person being part of the village that helped raise her three sons. And the results of this note writing were overwhelming— for the recipients and her personally.

One lady was about to quit her job, when she received the “thank-youfor-what-you-do” note. It turned her whole outlook around, gave her strength to carry on, and made her realize that what she does is indeed needed and appreciated. Father Nick, a former well-known priest in Mt. Pleasant, was also a priest in Ottumwa. When he first came to Ottumwa, Andrew, Cindy’s oldest son, was Father Nick’s first baptism. In the note, Cindy thanked Father Nick for the positive influence he had been on Andrew, and relayed the good news that Andrew, now 24, was about to be married. Father Nick wrote back that he had never received a note like that and how grateful he was to receive it. He went on to thank Cindy and her family for all the work and support they provided to the parish. Cindy does most of her writing in the morning—she’s a morning person. When she writes to someone, that person is in her mind. She’s thinks about that person’s good qualities and tries to emulate them. Can you imagine the positive influence a teacher like Cindy would have on second-grade students?! She encourages her students to write thank-you notes to guest readers, and student teachers. All three of her sons, and her mother, have been

guest readers. One of her sons, Patrick, is a Navy copilot on an F-18. One of her students wrote him a thank you note for being a reader, and Patrick wrote back, “Listen to your teacher, she is very smart.” Cindy aspires to what newspaper columnist Jim Davidson describes as the three stages of life: learning, earning, and giving back. In the first 25 years of your life, you are learning. The second twenty-five is devoted to earning. The last twentyfive should be giving back. Cindy is in the “giving back” stage. New Years Day is approaching, the time of reflection and resolution. Cindy has decided she is going to fire up the daily note writing again, starting on New Year’s Day. This time she is shooting for the full year. Watch out world! Have a good story? Call or text Curt Swarm in Mt. Pleasant at 319217-0526, email him at curtswarm@, or visit his website at

In last week’s column, I stated that three Republican aspirants to the presidential nomination in 2016 - Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul - all committed errors that will prevent them from getting nominated. I explained my reasons for dismissing Cruz and Christie. My dismissal of Rand Paul raises larger issues. During the two runs for the Republican nomination by Rand Paul’s father, Ron Paul, a hostile press ignored or minimized the older Paul and when that became impossible, he was attacked. Sometimes the attacks exposed real errors of judgment on Paul’s part and sometimes errors were exaggerated or manufactured. Ron Paul’s worst real judgment error was publishing newsletters that gave print space on a few occasions to racist hate mongers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Paul denied he had prior knowledge of such articles in newsletters he owned. He repudiated the views expressed and apologized. This is arguably worse than Obama sitting through sermons containing racially divisive rants by Rev. Jeremiah Wright but not as bad as the Iran–Contra scandal of the Reagan presidency. Whether or not a person feels that any of those scandals disqualified the responsible politician from seeking or continuing on in the presidency usually depends on how the person feels about the politician in general. Paul’s newsletter was an issue during his 2008 campaign and reemerged as an issue in 2011, just in time for maximum impact before the caucuses in Iowa where Paul was gaining ground despite the media’s attempt to black out his campaign. During Paul’s 2012 campaign for the GOP nomination, most media demonstrated blatant hostility toward his candidacy and toward his ideas. Rand Paul, a U.S. Senator from Kentucky and an expected 2016 candidate for president, received some of the same treatment in late 2012 and early 2013. Rand Paul has made errors in judgment, including an embarrassingly condescending lecture to a primarily black college audience. He has also alienated some of his libertarian base by pandering to social conservatives. He doesn’t seem to have the wisdom nor the intellect of his father but he does espouse similar views. He advocates scaling back the military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about,

protecting civil liberties and ending the counterproductive war on drugs, all treated by mainstream media in 2012 as taboo topics. The media were hostile toward anyone espousing libertarian views such as former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, who attempted to run for the Republican nomination in 2012 before dropping out and accepting the nomination of the Libertarian Party. Johnson was more completely minimized by the press than Ron Paul, which was easier to do because Johnson did not have the massive and enthusiastic following of Ron Paul, but Johnson was a two-term governor, still popular after he left office because of term limitations. He deserved serious attention. Despite the attitude prevalent at CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, FOX, PBS, major newspapers and wire services, Ron Paul was attracting thousands of mostly young and enthusiastic supporters at appearances in cities and college campuses when other candidates were having a hard time filling small meeting halls. In 2011, Ron Paul, a Vietnam War veteran, received more donations from active duty military personnel than the president and more than all the other Republican candidates combined. Paul’s campaign and the mainstream media’s treatment of Paul were communicated through blogs, YouTube postings and social media. Some non-standard media such as the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, both on Comedy Central, ridiculed the Paul blackout. In the final weeks before the Republican convention, some cracks were appearing in the mainstream media’s united front. Late night talk show hosts joked about such things as the 89 seconds Paul was given at one debate. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes both reported on such otherwise ignored news items as a plurality of Iowa and Minnesota delegates to the GOP convention being Paul supporters. Maddow, in particular, questioned the irregularities of Paul supporters being shut out of Maine and Massachusetts delegations, although irregularities in the delegate selections in Nevada, North Dakota, Louisiana, Missouri, Washington (state), Alaska and Oklahoma went unreported in mainstream media. An anti-war protest by hundreds of Veterans for Ron Paul at the White House on Presidents Day 2012 got no video play except on YouTube. Mainstream media never directly acknowledged anti-Paul or antilibertarian bias but there are signs that damage to media credibility had an impact. In recent months, Rand Paul has not been the victim of any invented or exaggerated scandal. Unfortunately for him, a real scandal was recently exposed, a scandal involving frequent and extensive plagiarism in Paul’s speeches, books and columns. It is well known that politicians employ speechwriters and research assistants. Rand Paul described the plagiarism as simply giving insufficient attribution to the original source, but having sentence after sentence of a speech or essay be presented under someone else’s name without the original author’s permission or knowledge goes

beyond insufficient attribution. This incident shows that Rand Paul compares unfavorably to his father both in integrity and intellectual ability. Ron Paul is a successful author of books on economics (successful for an author of that kind of book, although scholarly treatises tend not to be as popular as Harry Potter novels). Admittedly, I’m speculating that this scandal will be a disqualifying event for Rand Paul’s future aspirations but that is my gut feeling. My assertion that the Pauls and their philosophy have been attacked in an unethical manner by the press is more than a gut feeling. It is an observed fact. Regarding motive, I have no more than a gut feeling about that which I’ll address briefly at the end of this column. In order to dispel any perception than I’m suffering from paranoid delusions, I’ll summarize incidents of political bias that I’ve written about during the last 2 1/2 years. Before I get into that, I want to correct a misperception that readers may have at this point. I am not now, nor have I ever been an avid supporter of Ron Paul. I believe the libertarian model he espouses has flaws. I believe that government needs to mitigate the effects of natural disasters. Government should ensure that citizens are adequately fed, adequately educated and receive adequate health care. My concern isn’t really about Ron or Rand or any individual. This isn’t even about the stands of the Pauls that I agree with and which the media have suppressed. My concern is about the suppression itself, about the media’s groupthink orthodoxy, about the media’s failure at self-examination and about the media’s failure to impose any ethical expectations for the profession of journalism. The journalists who abdicated their intellectual independence did not consciously do so (I don’t think so, anyway). They did not adopt a philosophical stance at the direction of some charismatic guru. The dynamics of a group adopting a common belief system do not always work that way. At a Republican fundraising event in Ames, Iowa, in August of 2011, Michelle Bachmann won a straw poll, edging out Ron Paul by about half a percent. The media elevated Bachmann to top tier status and ignored Paul. Jon Stewart on a Daily Show segment showed clips of pundits from CBS, NBC and FOX parroting almost word for word, the phrase, “We have a top tier in the Republican race - Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.” No one dictated that pundits should come to that precise conclusion, at least I don’t think so, but such a strange consensus isn’t just a coincidental convergence of independent minds. There was prior behind-the-scenes reinforcement of a common belief system. Stewart added, “This pretending that Ron Paul does not exist has gone on for weeks.” It went on for weeks after that. When pinned down on why they were ignoring Ron Paul, pundits explained with pretentious and circular logic that Ron Paul will never be president and therefore does not deserve publicity. Another meaningless straw poll was taken at Iowa caucus sites in January and Paul came in third in what was close to being a three-way tie. The real months-long process of selecting Iowa delegates started at the caucus sites after many of the straw poll participants went home. Paul supporters dominated this process and they would eventually choose all but six of the 28 Iowa delegates to the national convention. The AP minimized Paul’s support by projecting for months that Paul would only get one delegate. This prevented Paul from ever being a leader in the delegate count. The Republican establishment took extraordinary measures in numerous states to prevent Paul from having a plurality of delegates in the five states required to have an automatic speaking spot at the national convention.

January 1, 2014 totally inept. Lawrence O’Donnell, host of the Last Word on MSNBC, was rather stubborn in his inept attempt to smear Rand Paul during and just after Paul’s 13-hour filibuster. O’Donnell’s position was that Paul was self-serving and incoherent. O’Donnell had guests with civil liberties credentials who, to O’Donnell’s visible annoyance, praised Paul’s efforts to get presidential clarification on drone policy. O’Donnell had different guests the following evening who also praised Paul regarding the filibuster, angering O’Donnell. That seemed to be the end of the clumsy smear attempts against Rand Paul. Paul could still be criticized but the polite consensus among progressives that everything Paul did was evil or crazy had ended. To be criticized, Paul needed to do something to deserve criticism, which he has. Regarding why the Pauls and their libertarian views were the targets of such aggressive hostility, the most obvious theory would be that their advocacy of a massively scaled back defense department budget would have a devastating impact on defense contractors. Defense contractors are not disinterested in the news gathering process. They spend massive amounts on advertising. GE actually owned NBC until a business deal in 2013 and GE has been a major corporate sponsor of the PBS News Hour. There is no proof that business interests caused networks to take a hostile stance against the libertarian philosophy but such speculation is

Some media hit pieces against Paul were rather clumsy. An 8 1/2 minute CNN interview by Gloria Borger was edited down to less than 3 minutes to make it look like Paul stormed out of the interview. It was posted by CNN with that spin. Bob Schieffer, host of Face the Nation on CBS, attempted to elicit an embarrassing sound bite from Paul through the paraphrase, “What you are saying is that it was America’s fault… you’re saying Americans caused 9/11?” Paul’s criticism of foreign policy as counterproductive was valid and Schieffer’s attempted smear of him and, by extension, all those who actively supported his candidacy (such as a substantial number of active military personnel), was shameful. Schieffer would later attempt a hit piece against Rand Paul that was even clumsier and certainly stranger. Rand Paul made an unfunny, but fairly innocuous joke about gay marriage at a conservative gathering. Schieffer played a clip of that joke attempt on his show and solemnly asked guest Tony Perkins, Family Research Council President, to comment. Perkins said about gay marriage, “I don’t think it’s a laughing matter.” Other talk shows picked up on the fact that anti-gay activist Tony Perkins didn’t think gay marriage was a laughing matter, the spin being that even a notorious gay basher like Tony Perkins thought Rand Paul had crossed some line. As smear attempts go, this one was

New Mom Marks Marathon on New Year Resolution List Submitted by Stewart Memorial Community Hospital The arrival of a New Year brings on thoughts of resolutions and setting new goals. For Brooke Smith, of Lake City, running a marathon is top on her list. “My mom is a marathon runner and she’s inspired me,” notes Smith who moved to Lake City from Jefferson in 2011. Smith recently became a first-time mom in late September and gives credit to her excellent medical care for the ability to stay in shape during her pregnancy. “While I was pregnant with our daughter, I didn’t want to give up all of the work I’ve put into staying fit to compete in running events,” recalls Smith. Since Smith was an avid runner before she and her husband Devin found out they were expecting their first child, Dr. Susan Hornback gave her the green light to continue exercising. “A moderate workout during pregnancy is okay for expecting mothers who have already established an exercise routine prior to pregnancy,” says Dr. Hornback, a board certified family practice and obstetrics physician with Stewart Memorial Community Hospital and

like speculation that the Washington Bridge fiasco in New Jersey resulted from petty political retaliation against Fort Lee’s mayor for refusing to endorse Chris Christie. That explanation will have to serve until a credible alternative explanation is offered.

McCrary Rost Clinics. While Smith got off to a good start with her pregnancy, she, like many first-time moms, had many questions during the 40 weeks. “Exercising didn’t always ease all of my stress and worries, so when I had a burning question, I called Dr. Hornback and she was very reassuring. She and her nursing staff always took the time to address my concerns, no matter how small,” recalls Smith. As her delivery day approached, and then passed, Smith anxiously awaited the arrival of her small miracle. “It was difficult to be patient, but I needed to follow Dr.

Hornback’s orders to put me in the best position of delivering naturally,” says Smith. A week past her due date, baby Smith was not showing any signs of arriving soon. “After an unsuccessful attempt to dilate my cervix with medicine, we opted to be induced,” Smith explains. Dr. Hornback had two careful considerations to weigh as Smith continued with her pregnancy. “The challenge was to give Brooke the best chance of having her baby vaginally and not by c-section which is what she desired and is a best practice, while not letting the baby grow too large to deliver. Since Brooke had

broken her pelvis in a car accident in 2009, we didn’t want to increase the baby’s risk of shoulder dystocia during a delivery,” states Hornback. On a Sunday afternoon Smith and her husband Devin arrived at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH) in Lake City to start the process of meeting their first child. “I was pretty nervous. As a first-time mom, you’re not sure what to really expect and there are no guarantees,” notes Smith. She was successfully induced and delivered her baby girl the following afternoon without any complications. The couple was overjoyed to welcome Brenna Ann, who weighed 8 lbs, 7 ounces. “I credit Dr. Hornback and the wonderful SMCH nursing staff for our smooth delivery. Since I did not have to have a c-section, I recovered quickly and was able to get back to my running in a short time frame,” quips Brooke who says Brenna looks just like her dad. While Brooke also spends a lot of time cuddling and doting on her new little girl, she is also preparing to meet her next challenge of completing a marathon. “Right now, I am working my way up to 26 miles, and deciding which marathon to compete in,” says Brooke who will run a race this spring.

Those continuing in their offices since re-election in November, include the mayor and Harold Johnson, councilman-atlarge, Wayne Johnson, A. T. Farley and Wm. Van Ahn. The conversion to the Dial telephone system went through at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning according to schedule.

My thought for the day is: America has become so tense and nervous it has been years since I’ve seen anyone asleep in church and that is sad. The Trivia question is Indianola’s Forrest Tucker starred as Sgt. O’Rourke in what 1960s television western sitcom? Last week Phyllis Caldwell entertained the retired teachers of Lincoln School at a dinner in her home. Ten were able to attend from Rockwell City, Lake City and Lohrville. A good time was had remembering their past teaching days. On December 18th Phyllis Caldwell, Bette Knapp, Toni Kerns and Pastor Sue Thomas attended a Christmas Tea at The Rockwell City United Methodist Church. UMW President Joann Maguire welcomed everyone and the group sang “There’s a Song in the Air”. Then Sandi Maulsby introduced the Program “The Tie that Binds” and Marilyn Olivari gave a really good program about Aprons We all enjoyed it. Bev Williams gave a reading. A drawing of door Prizes was held. Pastor Anita Bane gave the closing prayer. Very nice refreshments were served. Thank you to the ladies for a very enjoyable day. A Special Mission was given to Sandi Maulsby. On Sunday Rose Heath’s family spent their Christmas at Kim and

Don Becher .Faye Huster and family, Magan Huster, Shelly Beucher and a friend enjoyed the day together. Dorothy Siemann spent Christmas with her granddaughter in Des Moines with other family members.

Shady Oaks’ Living Nativity Shady Oaks residents, team members and friends were delighted on Christmas Eve day with a celebratory program. This year the focus was on the Nativity Story and was presented through scripture and song. Chaplain Elaine led the program through the lighting of the Advent candles, reading of scripture and a short Christmas message. Many residents actively participated in the live Nativity ranging in parts from angels, to Mary and Joseph, to the wise men. How exciting to be able to dress in costume and relive the story of the Holy Night from so long ago! When asked about the program, resident Katie Schrad said, “The program was beautiful. It was a wonderful celebration that really brought out the spirit of Christmas!” We send a special thank you to the Woodlawn Christian Church for the use of the costumes. During the program Michelle Shook, People Development Coordinator and Deb Zenor, Life Enrichment Assistant, sang a duet to

Sunny knoll My name is Patty and I am filling in for Jennifer as she left me in charge while she is on vacation. But we are holding down the fort without her. I think I may need a vacation by the time she gets back! We had a fun week with Christmas and now we are heading into New Years. All of our residents received gifts to open on Christmas morning. It was so fun to see them opening their presents. A big thank you to of the staff who bought gifts, you made everyone’s day! We also played blackout bingo with special Christmas gifts to the winners. We love bingo, even on Christmas Day! We have also been watching Christmas movies the month of December with Christmas Story,

Elf, National Lampoons Christmas vacation 1 and 2. Plus we have been lucky enough to have carolers stopping in our door to sing to us. This coming weekend we have the Immanuel Lutheran Church Carolers coming by and we are looking forward to that. We have also been playing lots of games. Have you ever heard of the game Tenzi? It is a nice game where everyone has 10 colored dice and you roll at the same time and try to be the first to get all 10 dice the same number. It gets a little wild, but it’s a great time! Stop out and see us, we have men’s coffee at 9:30 Friday mornings and ice cream social on Fridays at 2pm. Have a good week! Patty W

Santa handing out candy canes to the residents. “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.” This and all other songs resonated and were tied to scripture passages. The end of the program transitioned to more worldly celebration with the arrival of Santa Claus (played by Environmental Services Supervisor, Rob Riat). Santa passed out candy canes to each resident and guest while “Here Comes Santa Claus” was sung. After the excitement diminished, gifts were given to each resident. This year

the Life Enrichment girls ensured that each gift was personalized and was something each resident would enjoy (can you imagine shopping for over 70 people all in one trip? These gals certainly were dedicated!). Finally, “Dessert on Jack” was served. Jack Vetter, founder of Vetter Health Services, in which Shady Oaks is a part of, likes to offer a special treat every year for residents and staff alike. He cannot personally be a part of the Christmas festivities

at each of the 30 care centers he owns so instead he sends warm wishes and a treat. “Dessert on Jack” this year consisted of cookies and candies as well as coffee and juices. Many thanks to Joan Schaffer for her assistance with the program and to all others who took an active role; we could not have done it without you! Happy New Year!
