By Rebecca Peter GARNER - Tornados are unquestionably one of the most awesome and terrifying forces of nature. As Iowans well know, picking up the pieces of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life after a tornado devastates home and community is an enormous and sometimes overwhelming task. On Nov. 17, 2013, a tornado devastated the town of Washington, Ill. (population 15,00), killing two. Estimates are 600 homes were destroyed and 500 were damaged. Garner native Erin Templeton is among the citizens of Washington who lost her home and nearly all her possessions in the tornado. A benefit â&#x20AC;&#x153;showerâ&#x20AC;? for Erin will be held Saturday, Jan. 4, 1-3 p.m. at the Garner United Methodist Church. The benefit is open to the community. The daughter of Steve and Bev Templeton of Garner, Erin is a 2003 graduate of Garner-Hayfield and a 2007 graduate of Mount Mercy College where she received a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in nursing. She earned her Masters Degree in Nursing Systems Administration from Illinois State University in May of 2013. Templeton currently works as a Nursing Informatics Specialist for the Order of St. Francis Healthcare System in Peoria. Fortunately, when the tornado struck Washington (about 11 a.m.) Templeton was not at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been in Cedar Rapids on Saturday for an alumni council meeting at my alma mater and stayed overnight with a friend,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I woke up Sunday morning and saw on Facebook that Peoria would be getting some

I decided to pack up and hit the road so I could beat the storms.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little over an hour away from home when I started receiving text messages that I should be in the basement if I was home, as there was a tornado in Washington.â&#x20AC;? Erin called her neighbor, Marilyn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lived in a townhouse and shared one common wall. My neighbor Marilyn is a retired nurse and we were very close. We had always discussed that during bad weather I would go to her house so that I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone, and that way we would be together. We had actually done this a few times in the six years I had lived there.â&#x20AC;? Marilyn however, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer the phone. Erin next talked to a good friend whose step-mother was in the nursing home in Washington at the time. The

VENTURA from page 1 was done on the Chevy Silverado, along with replacing the battery and repairing the front seat. A new power washer to maintain the vehicles is also needed. Council members said to proceed with the purchase of a new power washer, subject to a $3,600 cost limit. Finally, Bredlow said the rear differential of the plow truck has a repair issue that needs attention. he will keep the council informed of the situation and the cost. PIECES from page 1 I needed to drive safe and not speed!â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I arrived home I went straight to my cousinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and waited for a friend to arrive and go in and check on the destruction at my house. We headed in and had to park about 4 blocks from my house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where we parked the houses still had walls up, but were damaged. As we approached a corner and turned south I broke down pretty hard when I saw blocks and blocks of completely flattened homes. And I also knew that my home was in that area. It was difficult to even tell what streets you were on and such. After looking at my house for a few minutes and sobbing I was ready to go.â&#x20AC;? The rest of the day was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;whirlwind,â&#x20AC;? Templeton said. By this time, her parents Steve and Beverly, were on the way. Other relatives and friends also arrived. She said there was very little cell phone reception, but text messages were getting through. Templeton experienced a roller coaster of emotions during the first week of cleanup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some days were easier than others,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was so much help and support, but that was difficult too, as it was something I had never needed much in my life, and all the sudden all these people want to help you in so many ways. I had to come to terms that I was at a time in my life where I did need help, and that it was okay to take that.â&#x20AC;? Even in literally of what was the darkest of storms, Erin found a little glimmer of a silver lining. Erin thought she had lost a diamond ring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My sisters and I all have rings that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had since we were 16 that have a diamond from my grandmother Dorothy Templetonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding ring,â&#x20AC;? Erin explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was heartbroken when I realized I had not taken it with me to Cedar Rapids, meaning it was in the rubble.â&#x20AC;? On Monday, Nov. 18 Erin and the others began to find pieces of the jewelry box the ring was in. Templeton was praying and hoping it would be found, yet somewhat doubtful when she looked at the endless rubble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point on Tuesday I heard screaming and yelling and made my way through the rubble. A portion of the top piece where the rings were placed had been found and the only ring in there was the diamond ring! It was amazing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in a higher Being or the fact we have angels watching over us, that story may change your mind,â&#x20AC;? she said. Another important find was her parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding china that they had given to her. The china was still in the china hutch that had fallen forward. Erin was

Photo Contest, 2nd, 3rd places

Second and third place in the 3rd Annual Hancock County Photo Contest were won by Sue Whitehurst of Garner. Her photos, shown above, respectively, earned her a $30 and $20 prize. The contest was spnosored by The Leader and Mid-America Publishing Corp. able to salvage almost eight complete place settings. Templeton is currently staying with family members that live on a farm on the edge of Washington. The community is beginning to recover, and holds town meetings every two weeks to keep citizens informed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really love the community of Washington as it reminds me a lot of Garner, just a bigger version,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has really rallied together in so many ways.â&#x20AC;? Erin has another apartment lined up for after the first of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so thankful for both my current community, and my past community,â&#x20AC;? Templeton continued. When my mom told me the church wanted to host a shower I was very excited! There are so many things you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize you no longer have until you need them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also am fortunate I have a very understanding employer, wonderful friends and family, and was insured! There are definitely still some tough days in all of this, and a long road ahead, but I have no doubt that not only will I persevere, but also the community of Washington.â&#x20AC;?

a chance of success and therefore joy at getting what you want. If you want your eldest daughter and her husband to come over more, invite them over more. Get the idea? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be alone for Christmas, help at one of the dinners provided for those who are alone. Give what you want to receive. Make two columns on your paper. In the first column, make a list of everything you would like to receive. Then, in the second column, write out how you are going to give that to someone else or to others. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out how to give that to someone else, may I suggest you erase that from your list of wants. Conclusions: Each step is very powerful and has the potential of freeing you from the old familiar emotional pattern of dreading the holidays. Do each step every day or do one step every day. It is up to you. The more you reject any given step, the more powerful that step will be for you if you do it. When feelings come up for you, write them down. You know the expression â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pull yourself up by your bootstrapsâ&#x20AC;?? These steps can help you do exactly that.

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 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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. This is the fourth and final article in the series to help you transform the holiday experience for yourself from one of dread to one of joy. We shall discuss the 6th and final step of the program, called Give what you want to receive. Step 6. Give what you want to receive. When my birthday came around, I knew I wanted a party to celebrate. I love birthdays. However, being new to Iowa, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know enough people to have a party. The people I did know were at work. So I put this step into play. I put on a pizza party at work over the lunch hour and invited all the people at work that I knew. I gave what I wanted to receive. It was a joyous occasion and my birthday did not go unnoticed. It was a huge success. Oftentimes, what we want to receive is laden with expectations (step #1), like if only my husband (wife) really loved me, he would know what I wanted. Unfortunately, this is a set up for failure and disappointment. No one gets anything in such a situation. If you know your husband (wife) is clueless about what gifts to get you for the holidays, ask him for a list of what he wants, and provide him a list of what you want. In this way, you have

Ice Fishing at Bluebill Wildlife Area

New at the Garner Public Library Krauthammer, Charles; Things That Matter -Readers will find here not only the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading conservative thinker offering a passionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose viewsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on feminism, evolution and the death penalty, for exampleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;defy ideological convention. Things That Matter also features several of Krauthammerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major pathbreaking essaysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on bioethics, on Jewish destiny and on Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superpowerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that have profoundly influenced the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused reflections on everything from border collies to Halleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comet, from Woody Allen to Winston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist. Lower, Wendy; Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Furies, German women in the killing fields. - Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Furies builds a fascinating and convincing picture of a morally â&#x20AC;&#x153;lost generationâ&#x20AC;? of young women, born into a defeated, tumultuous postâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; World War I Germany, and then swept up in the nationalistic fervor of the Nazi movementâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a twisted political awakening that turned to genocide. These young womenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nurses, teachers, secretaries, wives, and mistressesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of â&#x20AC;&#x153;wild eastâ&#x20AC;? of career and matrimonial opportunity, and yet could not have imagined what they would witness and do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents overwhelming

An Ice Fishing Event sponsored by the Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board and Lime Creek Nature Center will be held on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11:30 a.m. at Bluebill Wildlife Area. A fun morning of fishing for all is the main goal of this program. There will be a fire going for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. Following the fishing a weigh-in will be held to recognize the biggest and most fish caught, and a door prize drawing will be held for both children and adults. Mentors will be present to assist novices with ice fishing techniques. A limited supply of equipment will be available for use, or participants can purchase an ice fishing pole and jig for $10.00. Participants should bring ice fishing equipment, a bucket to put fish in, and dress for the weather. Children must be accompanied by an adult and anyone 16 years of age or older must have a fishing license. Registration is required â&#x20AC;&#x201C; please call 423-5309 to register or for more information. Bluebill Wildlife Area is located seven miles west of Mason City on Blacktop B-35, and two miles south on South 40th Street (14369 Indigo Ave.).
