Trails outside of the county on which grooming by the Association is permitted include: •The west-central part of Cerro

Gordo County, along U.S. Hwy. 18 to Clear Lake. •The east-central part of Kossuth County, along U.S. Hwy. 18 to Algona. •The north-central part of Wright County along U.S. Hwy. 69 to Belmond. •The south-central part of Winnebago County, alone U.S. Hwy. 69 to Forest City. The agreement has an automatic renewal unless either county or the Association wishes to terminate. Supervisors approved final payment vouchers for two resurfacing projects that took place in 2013. Projects include 3.1 miles of paving of Yale Ave. east of Garner, and 5.3 miles of paving from Garner to Miller on R64.

Seen in the photo are David Spangler, Kanawha public works director, right, and Russell Peters, left, of Peters Services. The city needs no more broken water mains this winter.

The boards of education at Corwith-Wesley and LuVerne voted to pursue a whole grade sharing agreement with Algona Community School. The folks at Corwith were shocked to learn that a former cafĂŠ, “The Loftâ€? would be reopening as a juice bar that allowed nude performers. The group of concerned citizens picked outside the bar.

continued from page 1 May 2. By most accounts the late snowfall was one for the record books. The snow plus an overall cool, wet spring delayed the start of the 2013 planting season across Iowa. In spite of a long winter and May snow, the swimming pool was open and occupied by the end of the month! West Hancock girls track team earned their second consecutive State Runner-up title for Class 1A at the 2013 State Track meet. June Outfield signs went up in early June, in preparation for summer

GOING UP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Despite the oil boom in North Dakota, the price of gas in Kanawha has been going up a dime at a time. It was $3.09 in mid-January and it was $3.39, here, on Feb. 4. The sign in the photo is at the Pronto. The price at the NCC Fuel Station, here, was a penny less at $3.38 per gallon.

MOVING MOUNTAINS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last fall 460,000 bushels of high quality Iowa corn was harvested, processed, and stored outdoors at Kanawha in a giant bunker, the size of a football fi eld. At $7.24 per bushel, the mountain of corn was worth over 3.3 million dollars. In two days last week, half of the corn was hauled away and 90 percent went to the corn alcohol plant at Goldfi eld. A dozen semi-trailer trucks took part in the operation, which resembled a military campaign. The strange looking dark machine mounted on the tractor in the photo is called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gobblerâ&#x20AC;?. It gobbled up the dry corn and transferred the bounty into the waiting semis. Each was loaded in a matter of minutes. The smoke in the photo is grain dust. The operation appeared to be seamless. As soon as one semi-truck was loaded and leaving, another came to take its place. The photos were taken on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 28, 2013, at 3:45 p.m.

HONORED FOR SERVICE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dave Reuber, Kanawha, was honored for 25 years of service as a National Weather Service Cooperative Weather Observer. He worked at the Northern Iowa experimental farm and provided the National Weather Service with rainfall and snowfall information.

FISH FRY 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Around 275 attended the Kanawha Firemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish Fry on Friday, March 8. The firemen had ordered 300 pounds of fish for this year and had enough to feed everyone with some left over. Last year the firemen had barely enough and so fifty pounds more were ordered. The photo shows some of the crowd at the annual event. It is hard to imagine community feeds at the old fire station. The new fire station is spacious and well-lighted. The fish tastes better in a spacious and well-lighted fire hall.

PONY EXPRESS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kanawha looked like Dodge City, Kansas, on Good Friday as a mounted posse patrolled the downtown. The horses and riders were part of the annual Pony Express Ride from all parts of Iowa to Camp Sunnyside. The annual trail ride is part of extensive fundraising for the Easter Seals Foundation. Riders were seen earlier that same day in Klemme and Garner.

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 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 col-

umns 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.

sports. The Kanawha Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market also started up offering local produce, plants, and baked goods. Hancock Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most visited garden was the Weed Identification Garden at the ISU Research Farm in Kanawha. A large crowd gathered at

the farm for the Twin Lakes Restaurant & Lounge closed its doors for good in late June. One World, One Hope, 100 years was the theme for the 2013 Hancock County Relay for Life. The event raised $75,000 for the American Cancer Society. Rickee Ewing of Britt was the honorary chairman.

STONE DELIVERY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A common sight in Kanawha is a truck with slabs of granite or marble being off-loaded at Global Granite, located behind the Kanawha Fire Station. Chris Miller of Global Granite is seen at the right paying for the delivery. The unnamed truck driver (left) said he started his day in St. Cloud, where there is plenty of snow on the ground from recent storms. The stone in the background is granite from India. The photo was taken on April 15.

SPRING CLEANUP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It is not just windows that get washed in the spring. Swimming pools also get the washing, scrubbing, and rinsing, according to Randy and Darla Yeakel, who were at the pool on Saturday morning. When cleaning the swimming pool, it is nice to have access to the water pressure provided by a fi re truckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water pump. The pool needs to be ready before classes are dismissed on May 28 because the middle school students are planning an end-of-the-year pool party. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle school end-of-year pool party was a great success. continued on page 8

FIELDS BECOME RIVERS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heavy rains on saturated ground created rivers on cropland all around Hancock County. Seen above is a newly created stream, which carried huge amounts of run-off from a fi eld between the cemetery and the Otter Creek. It is seen emptying into Otter Creek. The photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car is seen in the photo to show how large the water fl ow was. The creek was higher on Saturday, than on Sunday. The photo was taken near the Kanawha bridge over the Otter Creek.

SIREN IS UP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After two delays in April and problems with the old siren, the new severe weather warning siren is up in Kanawha. The crew from West Shore Services arrived in Kanawha early on Tuesday, April 30, with repaired equipment and proceeded to put up the new siren. The siren was to have been erected earlier in the month but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. A major portion of the cost of the new siren was paid with a grant from the Hancock County Foundation.

HUGE CROWD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; About a hundred farmers, agriculture students, ISU agriculture professors, and ISU Extension personnel converged on the ISU Northern Research Farm at Kanawha on June 25 for the annual field day. Retiring Farm Supt. David Reuber is seen addressing the crowd at 9:30 a.m., just before the wagon tours began. Despite a weather alert for possibly severe thunderstorms and possible flash floods, the sun came out and the tours were held according to plan.

CLOSING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While the Twin Lakes Restaurant & Lounge will be open as usual today (Thurs., June 27) and tomorrow (Friday, June 28), it will be closed on Saturday, June 29 and no re-open, according to Robert Johnson, owner and manager. Robert has been in the restaurant business, here, since 2011. He told the newspaper to thank everyone who supported the Twin Lakes Restaurant & Lounge.

TWO SNOWMEN & TWO BOYS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This photo shows Blake Wunder, six years old, and his brother, Gavin Wunder, four years old. They are the children of Gregg and Brenda Wunder of Kanawha. Their snowmen were the best of the winter of 2012 and 2013, according to the news photographer. The snowmen were created on Thursday morning, May 2. There was no school that day because of the record snowfall that hit Hancock County. We have had a long winter!
