Welcome the First Baby of 2014

Scott Jacobs named supervisors chairman By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Scott Jacobs was named chairman of the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors on Jan. 2, during the organizational meeting of the supervisors that always takes place on the first working day of the new year. The official newspapers for legal publications remain the GraphicAdvocate and the Calhoun County Journal-Herald. Regular weekly meetings will continue to take place on Tuesdays at 9 a.m. with adjustments as needed with notice to the public. Special meetings take place every year during the process of establishing the annual budget. The supervisors traditionally rotate the position of chairman each year. Gary Nicholson, who served as chairman in 2013 was appointed vice chairman at the Jan. 2 meeting. “Now my kids can eat meat, rather than just macaroni and cheese,” Jacobs joked, referring to the $300 extra per year paid to the chairman

The Calhoun County Board of Supervisors shifted positions at their table in the county courthouse as Scott Jacobs (left) took over as chairman from Gary Nicholson (center) during the organizational meeting on Jan. 2. If the makeup of the board remains the same at the start of 2015 and the tradition of rotating the chairman position continues, Dean Hoag (right) will be named chairman at that time.

The board approved purchase of

a 140H Caterpillar motor grader for a net cost of $186,000, which is $288,000 minus a trade-in allowance of $102,000 for a 2001 model. Trevor Dielman, Ziegler cat territory manager, told the board that

this tier 4 intermediate model will be discontinued in a matter of weeks. The final model will be $14,000 to $15,000 more expensive with little or no future added trade-in value.

2013 was year of loss and of victories

2014 New Year Baby arrives at SMCH

Contributed by SMCH The first baby of 2014 at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital in Lake City has arrived. Ava Lou Stokes was born to parents Kelli and Chad Stokes of Lake City. The New Year baby entered the world at 11:48 PM on Wednesday, Jan. 1, weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches long. She was delivered by Dr. Pablo Amado, Family Practice and Obstetrics Physician. Ava Lou was welcomed by big sisters Caitlin, who will be 11 on Jan. 8, and Allison, age 9, and grandparents Lloyd and Nancy Corey and Jim and Nancy Gebhart, all of Lake City. To celebrate the birth of the New Year baby, the family was given a basket full of gifts. Items included diapers, baby wash and baby wipes all donated by Stewart Memorial Community Hospital. Gifts given by SMCH employees included a book and Tooth Fairy pillow from Jenni Macke, a laundry basket from Mary Ludwig, a hand crocheted baby hat from Julie Wilson, a sleeper outfit from Ashley Smith, a hand crocheted baby hat from Carmen Schamel, a teething toy and baby on board sign from Lee Vogt, a free sitting and 8x10 portrait from Sherry Lampe, a Huggable Friend from Casey Wetter, a TWIG, GRASS, socks, blanket and hair bow from Holly Wuebker, a blanket from Maurine Thieszen, and a blanket and baby wash from Sheila Remsburg. The SMCH Auxiliary donated a plush teddy bear.

Dramatic events in 2013 changed lives in the communities served by the Graphic-Advocate. Some were tragic and others offered signs of hope for the future. Following are some of the stories appearing in the Graphic-Advocate, organized by the month that each article appeared, not necessarily when all the events described in an article occurred. January * U.S. Census officials acknowledged that Rockwell City was undercounted in the 2010 Census and the officials established a base estimator number for 2010 that is 507 people more than the census. However this type of error is not the kind that can be corrected in the official census, according to the officials. An adjustment to the numbers used for distributing road use funds (state gas tax revenue) would require an act of the state legislature. * On Jan, 10 at Emmetsburg, SCC Titan wrestlers won the 2013 Twin Lakes Conference Dual title and on Jan. 12 at Laurens, the Titans won the Twin Lakes Conference title. * After being arrested and charged for alleged multiple counts of harassment of an adult female in Greene County, Lukas McCollough, age 30, was dismissed from the Lake City Police Department. * Because of the SCC Titan Girls’ Basketball team’s successful season, SCC was chosen to host the first two post–season games. February * Tina Meth-Farrington took the oath of office as the Calhoun County Attorney on Feb. 5. The county

board of supervisors appointed Meth Farrington to replace Cynthia Voorde, who resigned for health reasons. Voorde recommended Meth-Farrington for the position. Voorde was honored for her years of service at a reception that same day. * Cynthia Voorde died at her home on Feb. 18, following a struggle with cancer. She was 51 years old, a wife and mother. Voorde served as county attorney for 18 years and was Webster County assistant attorney 7 1/2 years before that. * Six SCC wrestlers qualified for district competition - Tyler Kutz, Chase Goodman; Aron King, Trey Eddy, Zayne Barrett and Rylan Richardson. Goodman and Richardson would later qualify for state competition. * By an overwhelming margin, voters in the Rockwell City/Lytton and the Southern Cal School Districts approved consolidation of the two districts into the South Central Calhoun District, as of July 1, 2014. * Brett Nicholson and Andrew Van Hulzen qualified to perform at the Iowa High School Speech Association All-State Festival on Feb. 16 in Ames. * The South Central Calhoun Girls Basketball Team ended the season 19-5, with a regular season record of 17-4. March * Less than two months after an announcement of the dismissal of a police officer from the Lake City Police Department, Chief Bobby Rist announced the dismissal of a second officer, Dana R. Cook. Rist explained that the two dismissals were unrelated except that the investigation of the officer dismissed earlier, Lukas McCollough, raised questions that led to the investigation of Cook. * For the 2nd year in a row, the SCC Academic Decathlon team has won the small school state championship. This was the 14th consecutive year that (SCC or Southern Cal) has won its regional competition and advanced to the state competition. * Doug Dornath joined the Graphic-Advocate team to cover South Central Calhoun High School sports for the Graphic-Advocate. Dornath is a seasoned pro with experience in Forest City, Kalona, and Marengo before returning to the family farm southeast of Pocahontas to operate the farm and to work parttime as a sports correspondent. * Mandy Reis (now Mandy Meyer, as a result of her marriage to Steve Meyer) joined the GraphicAdvocate staff to work part time in the Lake City Office. April * Jerry Jondle, manager of the newly opened Champion Body Shop in Rockwell City, showed off his shop during an open house on April 10. Jondle has 50 years of body work experience. * After 27 years working in the computer science field in Denver, Colorado, Michele Deluhrey returned to the area where she grew

up and began a new career as a librarian. Recently she was named Lake City Library director. May * The planned truck stop at 4 & 20 is a ‘Go’. Land has been purchased and plans have been drawn for a truck stop to be built on the northwest corner of the Hwy 4 and Hwy 20 interchange, expected to open in 2014. * Leah Rosado was named the new Lake City Betterment director. * Both houses of the Iowa legislature passed a bill that will correct an error in the 2010 census count of Rockwell City for purposes of distributing road use funding, The bill was initially introduced by State Senator Daryl Beall and was sponsored in the House by Rep. Tom Shaw. The correction will increase street project funding an estimated $45,000 per year. * South Central Calhoun’s state track meet qualifiers for 2013 included Jake Petzenhauser (110 high hurdles, 400 hurdles), Sam Spencer (high jump), Ashley Henkenius (100, 200) and Tyffaney Toms (shot put). * Two bids were presented for the Lohrville School building and surrounding property at a joint school board meeting in Lake City. The building had been closed as a result of whole grade sharing. There were also separate bids for part of the property (the bus barn would eventually be sold separately). The Fort Dodge Youth Development program planned on building a residential, educational and mentoring facility for 400 disadvantaged youth between the ages of 16 and 18. (This would later be changed to a seminary and a much smaller residential youth facility.) George Duncan, of Missouri, a contractor who purchases old buildings, placed separate bids for just the building and for the entire package. No action was taken during the May meeting on the bids. June * In what would be an extensive process of exploring the eventual fate of the former school building in Lohrville, a large number of citizens from Lohrville and from other communities in the whole grade sharing Southern Cal and Rockwell City/Lytton districts as well as representatives from Fort Dodge Youth Development gathered at the Lohrville Community Center. Concerns were expressed about having a large juvenile facility in the small town of Lohrville (the downsizing of the youth center proposal was described at the meeting) and about the potential for the new property owners to eventually abandon the project, passing on a demolition expense to the city that would otherwise be a responsibility of the school district. The Lohrville City Council later voted to recommend that the Southern Cal School Board reject both building bids. * David and Wendy Wooldridge, owners of Affiliated Foods in Manson, purchased Jubilee Foods

in Rockwell City from Gary and Janet Nobbe, with the transfer of operations taking place on July 1 and the new store to be called Southside Grocery. * The Calhoun County Board of Supervisors approved final details on a social host ordinance. The ordinance prohibits the owner or person responsible for a property from knowingly allowing consumption of alcohol on the property. The supervisors directed County Attorney Tina MethFarrington to set the fine for a first offense at $750 and for a second offense at $1200. July * Jordan Ukena was crowned 2013 Calhoun County Queen. Hannah DeMoss was named first runner up and Shelby Quade was named second runner up. Ashley Westering was named 2013 Little Miss Calhoun County. Kalie Buenting was named first runner up and Tyjah Sease was named second runner up. * A crime spree that started in Carroll County on or before Sunday, July 7, continued into Calhoun County and culminated in the arrest of two 19-year-old men in Greene County on July 9. Zachary Michael Wailes of Breda and Josey Michael Wilson of Carroll were apprehended in Grand Junction at 9:45 p.m. on July 9. Both Wailes and Wilson are suspected in a string of crimes in Carroll, Calhoun and Greene counties. Inititial charges included theft in the first degree and burglary. * The 2013 South Central Calhoun baseball team won the Class 2A, District 3 baseball title with a 4-2 victory over Maple Valley-AnthonOto, July 20, in Mapleton. August * Four charges, including attempted murder were included in a trial information filed on Aug. 9 against Robert Turner, 44, Rockwell City, who allegedly shot Joseph Hankey, 29, Rockwell City, early in the morning on Aug. 4. Hankey was later released from the hospital. * Football player Nathan Christensen was selected to represent South Central Calhoun High School in the 41st Annual Iowa Shrine Bowl Game. Cheerleaders Lexy Kritenbrink and Hannah DeMoss also represented SCC as two of sixty cheerleaders from the state at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls. * Delmer Zinnel of Rockwell City was inducted into the 2013 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fair. September * Rockwell City Police Officer Jamie Buenting, 37, was shot at about 1:40 a.m. Sept. 13, during an attempt to arrest a man sought on charges of felonious assault. Buenting was taken to Stewart Memorial Hospital in Lake City where he subsequently died of his wounds. Corey Trott, 32, of Rockwell City, subsequently surrendered to law enforcement and has been charged with first degree murder. YEAR IN REVIEW continued to page 5

Apology to the Iowa State Patrol By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor An error in the Dec. 25 edition of the Graphic-Advocate needs a bit more explaining than the standard correction. I apologize to the Iowa State Patrol for erroneous information in a letter to the editor from a Wisconsin man complaining about a bad experience with state law enforcement when the man received a citation for a seatbelt violation. The error originated with the letter writer but this editor should have caught the error before the letter went to print. The letter was sent by way of email after the author did a search for the

Lake City newspaper. Unfortunately, instead of locating the newspaper for Lake City, Minnesota, where he had the bad experience, the disgruntled traveler found the email address for an Iowa newspaper. Yes, there is a Lake City, Minnesota, and the newspaper there is called the Lake City Graphic. What should have been a red flag in the letter was the author saying he enjoys visiting Minnesota. Also there is a reference to surcharge fees on the ticket, including a library fee. Iowa has no such fee. The error is slightly embarrassing to the newspaper but mostly it’s just amusing.

2013 Gary Dudley – term expires 2013 Chris Sedlacek - term through 2015 Patrick Sampson - term through 2015 – He has moved out of Rockwell City, his spot needs to be filled Darin Putney - term through 2014 Misty Rastetter - term through 2014 Devin Landgraf - term through 2014 Tom Campbell - term expires 2013 Open seats on the 2014 Chamber Board of Directors include: Unexpired term of Patrick Sampson – through 2015 Expiring terms: Shelly Hartwig Gary Dudley Tom Campbell Please consider nominating yourself for a 3-year term on the Rockwell City Chamber & Development Board! Elections will be held at an event in January!!! Please contact Theresa Hildreth (712-297-8874 office phone, 712887-1028 cell phone) if you would like to volunteer to serve!

The most positive and needed development in public education is the creation of career academies. The idea has been around for about 30 years but only in the last few years has there been a major push in many states, including Iowa, to provide access to intensive vocational education to high school age youth. The model used in locations that have already established career academies in Iowa and the model likely to be used going forward involves a partnership between a community college and the school districts served by the community college. Local businesses with specific skill needs also participate in the partnership. Students spend three hours at the academy, either before lunch or after lunch, and then spend the rest of their school day in regular classes at the high school. Ideally, a career academy should be within 25 miles of all the high schools it serves. Much more than that and the bus trip from and back to the high school is impractical. Expecting students to provide their own transportation to the academy creates problems for all involved and should be discouraged, perhaps even prohibited other than for exceptional circumstances. The range of classes can include construction trades, health services, wind turbine maintenance, computer aided design, robotics, auto mechanics, pre-engineering and a multitude of others. Each career academy would need to select a half dozen or so programs to fit the needs of its communities. The career academy either needs to be built from scratch or utilize a building with plenty of large, highceilinged areas for hands-on training. Rural school districts have more challenges in establishing such programs because of the distances between schools. The state is willing to provide increased weighting in the per-pupil funding for students at career academies to help offset the added ongoing costs. Start-up costs remain a real problem. Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge has taken steps toward establishing a career academy in Eagle Grove but a career academy

Crop Advantage meetings slated Registration is now open for the 2014 Crop Advantage Series meeting. Sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the meetings will be held at 13 locations across Iowa in January. Each location focuses on local crop production issues, delivering Iowa

Agronomist in northwest Iowa and chair of the planning committee. “Each location has a variety of topics, including crops, pests, soil fertility, and farm management.” Extension weed specialists Mike Owen and Bob Hartzler will discuss management options when dealing with herbicide resistance as the keynote topic for the 2014 series. In addition, each location features a full agenda of workshops that attendees can choose from, developing a personalized meeting agenda. Program topics that focus on local needs and production issues are selected by the ISU Extension and Outreach field agronomists for each meeting. “Each year attendees tell me they wish there were more breakout sessions during the day. They are interested in so many of the topics and can’t be at every workshop. The topics are in demand. It’s a great problem to have” says Mark Johnson, ISU Extension and Outreach field agronomist in North Central Iowa. “The Crop Advantage Series provides a statewide message on important issues yet retains local input on topics for that specific area. Crop and pest management issues are different for each area of the state and these meetings are tailored to fit the needs of producers in that area,” says Brent Pringnitz, program coordinator with ISU Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension. Launched in 2002, the meeting series has impressive attendance numbers. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in attendance for the Series. Response from producers has been very positive. In addition to receiving the latest research information from the University, the meetings have been a valuable way for producers to provide input back to ISU researchers and specialists on what their needs are. It works both ways,” states DeJong. Each of the meetings is approved for Certified Crop Adviser continuing education credits. Each location also offers the opportunity for private pesticide applicators to receive continuing education credits. “Producers have appreciated the

opportunity to get their pesticide applicator recertification done at the same time as the Crop Advantage meeting. It makes an efficient learning experience,” states DeJong. Fee information, additional program details, registration forms and online registration are available at www.cropadvantage.org or from ISU Extension and Outreach Calhoun County office at 712-2978611. 2014 Schedule • January 6 - Sheldon • January 8 - Okoboji • January 9 - Mason City • January 10 - Burlington • January 14 - Ames • January 15 - Storm Lake • January 16 - Honey Creek • January 21 - Atlantic • January 22 - Fort Dodge • January 23 - Waterloo • January 28 - LeMars • January 29 - Iowa City • January 30 - Carroll

serving schools in Calhoun County is only a theoretical possibility. Dr. Dan Kinney,
president
of Iowa Central Community College, is committed to making this possibility a reality. “Unfortunately, I don’t have the 7 to 8 million dollars in my pocket to get that built,” Kinney said at a recent economic development forum in Fort Dodge. The need for expanded vocational education opportunities has long been understood by local school administrators and by members of local school boards (Southern Cal, Rockwell City/Lytton and now South Central Calhoun). At a recent school board meeting, some board members expressed frustration at the lack of progress toward a career academy in Calhoun County and indicated that the district should consider using the Carroll campus of Des Moines Area Community College to provide vocational education opportunities. This might be the quickest solution and the quicker the better for those in high school or soon to enter high school. It is already too late to benefit current juniors and seniors. However, this might not be the best solution long-term, either for the students or the future of economic development in Calhoun County. A career academy built from scratch near the Hwy 20 and Hwy 4 interchange might be the best location to serve high schools in the SCC, Manson NW, Pocahontas, East Sac and Prairie Valley districts. This would likely require a bond issue in the ICCC district. This kind of economic development cannot use Tax Increment Financing (TIF) incentives the way that the truck stop now being built does. There is no property tax revenue from a school campus to divert to a TIF. Since school property is tax

exempt, some people might question whether a career academy is actually economic development. It certainly is. Often potential employers thinking of starting or expanding a business that provides high-paying jobs are discouraged by the lack of skilled workers. Community Colleges have long been the powerhouses of vocational education designed to meet employers’ needs. With the development of career academies, community colleges have expanded that capability. Americans have for a long time been fed statistical information designed to make us regard our educational system as inferior. Standardized tests given to students in foreign countries, presumably to those students in university preparatory schools, do better in most subjects tested than indicated by the more broadly given standardized tests in America. In reaction to these results, we have actually moved even further away from the type of system we seem to envy. Most foreign systems tracks students into career paths as young as 10 years old. I believe we should continue to give all students in the public school system a fairly broad education. Almost any career requires proficiency in reading, writing and speaking. Many vocational programs require strong math skills and everyone can enrich their lives through an appreciation of the humanities. However, we now mandate that every high school student pursue and education recommended for students planning on attending a four-year university. That was a wrong decision. Doing whatever we must do to provide expanded vocational education opportunities would be the right decision.

Kirsten and Eric Heerdt’s white, twostory home in Mt. Pleasant was one of those stately, colonial-style homes that everyone wishes they had. It was in a friendly neighborhood, with mature trees and rolling lawns. But as with most older homes, a lot of work was required. At 2:00 in the afternoon, on December 30th, 2012, Kirsten and Eric were working on the remodel of their kitchen. It was a major undertaking, with floor joists having to be removed and leveled. The Heerdts are formerly from Colorado, therefore, son Russell was

Heerdts Anxious to Move Into New House

busy painting his bedroom Denver Bronco colors. Daughter Elizabeth was making herself a bagel in their temporary kitchen. Eric was in the basement using a sledge hammer to beat on the kitchen floor joists. The vibrations from the pounding knocked over a can of spray paint that sprayed into the water heater. The center of the house went up in flames. The fire was too big for Eric to fight. He screamed for everybody to get out. Once outside, with his family accounted for, he dialed 911. In seven minutes the Mt. Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department

arrived. Black smoke was roiling from the house. Kirsten, having worked a night shift, was still in her pajamas. It was then that they realized their dog, Hunter, was with them, but not their other dog, Lucy. Kirsten took two steps toward the house when the furnace exploded. Lucy, as well as a fish, turtle, and a lizard didn’t make it out. Needless to say, the Heerdt’s lives were turned upside down. But they were safe. Neighbors took over, and the Red Cross arrived on scene, followed by the insurance company. The Heerdts were put up in a

motel for two weeks. Then they moved in with friends Tim and Lisa Ockenfels. Although the house didn’t look all that bad from the outside, it was a total loss on the inside. The landmark home would have to be razed. The Heerdts found a rental home one block away from their old home. Ironically, it had also suffered major fire damage earlier in the year, but had been restored. It wasn’t home, but it would do and would be handy for work on their new home. When the rental house was sold, the Heerdts moved into

another rental west of Mt. Pleasant. It too had been through a porch fire. January of 2013 was spent dealing with insurance details. (The Heerdts stress the importance of having replacement coverage.) In February the house was demolished. In March, the decision was made that they would rebuild the twostory home at the same location. The Heerdts liked the neighborhood. Their lot had mature trees, and the detached double garage was still there. And it was home. Ironically, one of the firefighters who fought the fire, Kevin Wellington, became the general contractor. He stated that it was the hottest fire he had ever fought. The Heerdts are doing a lot of the work themselves, like all of the trim work, the floors, the painting and staining. They went so far as to purchase original old hardwood for the trim. Eric has a degree in mechanical engineering and is pretty handy. Both of the kids pitch in. They all are part of the project, which is the construction of their new home. Many people drive by to view the

progress. People they don’t even know stop them in the super market and relate how pleased they are that the Heerdts are building a two-story home to replace the old two-story home. Fortunately, most of their valuable papers were stored in a bank lock box, and their computers were backed up on the internet. It was just a matter of downloading. It’s been a stressful year for the Heerdts, to say the least. The kids couldn’t participate in a lot of school activities because of working on the new house, but it’s a family project that they can all be proud of. They hope to be in their new home on February 2nd for a Super Bowl Party (fingers crossed). Broncos they predict. They will have this home blessed by the church. Have a good story?

With the win, the Titans moved to 9-0 on the season. In the win, Haley Birks led the Titans with 14 points while Michaela Graffunder finished with 10 points and seven steals against the Tigers while Hannah Corey also scored 10 points for the Titans.

Rounding out the scoring for SCC was Maria Dischler with three points. The Titans charged to a 22-5 lead by the end of the first quarter and again outscored the Tigers 22-5 in the second quarter to lead 44-10 at the half. SCC led 60-14 after three quarters of play. The Titans, ranked 10th in Class 2A, were scheduled to face Class 2A, No. 3 Manson Northwest Webster Tuesday, Jan. 7, in Rockwell City.

SCC Boys’ Basketball Defeated By Carroll, 69-52 By: Doug Dornath The South Central Calhoun High School boys’ basketball team lost to Class 3A, No. 4 Carroll High at Rockwell City last Friday, 69-52, in non-conference play. Jake Petzenhauser led the Titans with 23 points and had five rebounds and four assists against the Tigers. Teammate Ryan Daisy finished with nine points and five rebounds while Jace Neubaum scored six points and John Curran added five points in the loss. Coach Clive Clark commented, “Jake Petzenhauser led the team in scoring with 23 points and 4 assists in his first game back after his recent injury. Jace Neubaum added six points, including 2 0f 4 from 3-point range. Anthony Handlos had five rebounds and two steals. Sam Spencer had 4 assists and 2 steals. Ryan Daisy had nine points and five rebounds. “John Curran played well defensively and added 5 points,” added coach Clark. “Derrick Henkenius had two points and two steals. Trevor Bounds had two points, a rebound, an assist and a steal. Zach Ludwig came off the bench to play in the post-position and Cyle King and Jacob Clark played on the perimeter. The team played hard and was more effective defensively in the press, but we have many ways in which we can improve in other areas of the game.” The Titans was scheduled to play Manson-Northwest Webster at Rockwell City Tuesday, Jan. 7, and will play St. Mary’s at Storm Lake on Friday, Jan. 10.

(Photo by Doug Dornath) YEAR IN REVIEW continued from page 1 Buenting served 12 years in law enforcement, 8 years with the Rockwell City Police Department. He is survived by a wife and two small children. * In the aftermath of the fatal shooting of Rockwell City Police Officer Jamie Buenting, law enforcement officers from across the state volunteered to fill in on the department, not only for the slain officer but also for his grieving three colleagues during the first days after the tragedy. Dozens of volunteers from Iowa Concerns of Police Survivors, C.O.P.S., arrived in Rockwell City to offer experienced competency in overseeing the countless details of a formal service for a law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty. The school district cancelled classes for the day of the funeral, Tuesday, Sept. 17. The South Central Calhoun Middle School in Rockwell City was provided for the funeral service and was filled to overflowing. Area law enforcement officers and emergency responders arrived in uniform. Student organizations assisted with directing vehicle parking. Boom trucks from the Carroll and Fort Dodge Fire Departments displayed huge flags at the beginning and end of the 22-mile funeral procession route. Miles of police, sheriff department and state trooper vehicles from across Iowa were in the funeral procession. A count of 360 law enforcement vehicles was made and there were numerous other law enforcement officers involved in traffic control and other duties that kept them from the procession. October * The South Central Calhoun Homecoming Court for 2014 included Jake Petzenhauser, Tyler Kutz, Kyler Case, Aron King, Anthony Handlos, Hannah DeMoss, Shelby McKinney, Ashley Henkenius, Stephanie Hood and Abby Collison. * Ashley Henkenius and Jake

Petzenhauser were crowned Homecoming Queen and King at a coronation ceremony and pep rally in Lake City. * Meeting in special session to make a decision regarding the disposition of the former school building in Lohrville, the South Central Calhoun School Board rejected the one remaining active bid for the building and decided to proceed with obtaining a formal bid for demolition. Previously, the Southern Cal board decided to refer the matter to the SCC board because SCC will inherit all assets and liabilities of the Southern Cal and Rockwell City/Lytton districts when they consolidate on July 1, 2014. * After much research and preparation, the Graphic-Advocate launched its state-of-the- art website and e-edition subscription in October at www.thegraphicadvocate.com. The site is computer, iPad, and smartphone friendly, and is updated often with local news, sports, death notices, weather, and other information. * South Central Calhoun’s varsity volleyball team went 6-0 at the Twin Lakes Conference varsity volleyball tournament to win the tournament championship. * The South Central Calhoun girls and boys varsity cross country teams both qualified for the 2013 state cross country meet held at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course north of Fort Dodge. November * Two experienced and certified law enforcement officers joined the Rockwell City Police Department. From about 30 applicants for the two full-time positions being filled, the city hired Richard Shinn and Jason McKenney. Both were sworn in Friday, Nov. 1. * Michael Fitzgerald, Iowa Treasurer, visited with Rockwell City officials and with Iowa State Senator Daryl Beall at the City Hall in Rockwell City for a ceremonial check presentation of $108,404, representing the amount

of population-based road use tax funding the city was reimbursed through state legislation after the US Census erroneously excluded the residents of the North Central Correctional Facility from the city’s census count. * Jacob Clark, Jace Neubaum, Stephanie Rautanen, Morgan Snyder, and Katie Welander of South Central Calhoun High School have attained the highest individual honor available to Iowa high school musicians by being selected as members of the 2013 All-State Chorus. * Eighteen South Central Calhoun students were inducted into the Sit Lux chapter of the National Honor Society on Tuesday, Nov. 19. * Two third-graders from South Central Calhoun Elementary School went to a school board meeting on Nov. 18 seeking permission to raise money for relief efforts on behalf of the victims of a typhoon that ravaged the Philippines. Moved by the images of Typhoon Haiyan’s aftermath that left huge areas of the Pacific nation in ruins and countless people without shelter, food, water and medicine, Kassady Haffner and Lauren Korkow came before the board to present their plan of action. Board members signified their approval of the project by getting the donations started. December * A fire that destroyed a North Center Street house in Lake City during the early morning hours of Dec. 5. Nobody was injured. Two adults and four young children (infant to age 8) were able to get out of the house safely. The fire was apparently an electrical fire that started in the attic. * The South Central Calhoun High School all-male dance team, known as the Brotherhood, narrowly missed earning a third state championship in a row, coming in second place in the small school category during the competition in Des Moines on Dec. 5. * During the South Central

Risk Management Workshops for farm and ranch women Getting a grip on today’s agriculture technology and becoming an effective farm business partner is the focus of Annie’s Project. Annie’s Project is based on the experiences of a Midwestern farm wife who spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Together they did great things, but it wasn’t easy. Annie’s Project takes life experiences and shares them with farm women living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment. In the class, farm women receive training in the areas of financial records, production records, marketing plans, risk management, legal regulation and records, and human resources. This women’s empowerment program will be offered on six Tuesday evening sessions beginning Feb. 4. The program is provided by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach of Calhoun County and will be held in the Calhoun County Extension office at 521 4th Street, Rockwell City. Dinner is provided and starts at 5:45pm with the program starting at 6 p.m. and concluding by 9 p.m. Preregistration is required. Participants can register online at www.aep.iastate.edu/ annie.

Friendship Haven holds grand opening Friendship Haven’s new health center will hold an Open House and Public Tours Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 11 and 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. on the Friendship Haven campus, 420 Kenyon Road, Fort Dodge. The guided tour celebrates the opening of the redesigned and redefined retirement living campus. The debut of the new Health Center and connection to River Ridge Apartments, Tompkins Celebration Center, The Gardens Assisted Living, Kenyon Place Apartments, and the Wellness Center marks the culmination of the plan started in 2003. All of these buildings completed in the last decade enhance the original campus spirit of caring. The campus revitalization is living proof of the goal as leaders in regional retirement living offering

cutting-edge programming, as well as state-of-the-art buildings. Catalyst Rehabilitation Program offers personalized physical, occupational, speech and aquatic therapy as well as outpatient therapy for all ages. READI - Rehab Exercise Assistance from Discharge to Independence – is a customized sixweek program at Friendship Haven’s award winning wellness and aquatic center The three-story John & Lin Simpson Health Center accommodates 96 residents in their own rooms of distinct neighborhoods featuring spacious dining areas, cozy living rooms, comfortable bedrooms and private bathrooms.

St. Anthony opens Chronic Care Center St. Anthony in Carroll announces the Jan. 13 opening of the Chronic Care Center which includes the merger of the Diabetes Center, Wound Care Clinic, and addition of new Health Coach services. “The Chronic Care Center combines services and adds an exciting, innovative program for patients with chronic disease,” said Karen Timm, Vice President for Patient Services. The Chronic Care Center will be located in the second floor space previously occupied by the OBGYN Clinic. “The addition of Health Coach services is designed to help patients track and report their health status and management issues to the medical team, as well as help them find a balance to maintaining wellness,” said Timm. Health Coach services are designed for patients who need help understanding and managing their medical condition. Sara Payer, an experienced RN, has received special training and certification to pioneer St. Anthony’s Health Coach services. She will work as a patient advocate, working one-on-one with patients, to help them know what questions to ask their doctor, make sure medication is taken properly, and be aware of lifestyle changes necessary to successfully manage

their condition. “My nursing experience gives me a solid background into the clinical side of chronic disease such as diabetes, wound care, congestive heart failure, and obesity,” said Payer. “Being able to help patients find their way through the healthcare maze and work toward a healthier lifestyle is what my Health Coach training will offer.” “Part of the job of a Health Coach is to help each individual become the ‘expert’ in the management of their own condition,” said Timm. “The Health Coach does this by identifying high risk clients, then proactively working to set goals that put them on a path towards better health.” Support from a Health Coach has proven to be a key difference in helping patients realize lasting changes in behavior that impacts not only their health and their family’s well being, but also results in fewer emergency room visits and recurring hospitalizations. More information about Diabetes, Wound Care, the Health Coach, or any of the services offered through the St. Anthony Chronic Care Center is available by calling 712-794-5901.

Cramer, board chairman. He commented further, “When we think of the boys out there who are fighting for us, it is little enough that we can do to make price control and rationing work, so that when they come back they will see that we have not failed them at home while they were fighting abroad to keep us free.” Iowa Theatre, Lake City – Lake City’s Fine 500-Seat Theatre – Thurs-Fri-Sat, Jan. 6-7-8, Double Feature “LASSIE COME HOME” – The picture you’ve been waiting for –based on the lovable story by Eric Knight, and a very compelling film.

“Now listen, kid …” Our friend Helen Tucker, former Sunnyview resident, passed away December 26, 2013. Helen’s funeral was at the Rockwell City United Methodist Church on Saturday, Dec. 28, that incredible snow-melting day with sunshine and warm temperatures in the 50s, the day before the bottom dropped out of the thermometer. Helen called Sunnyview home from 2000 to April of 2013. Our memories of Helen include her delicious homemade popcorn balls and her patriotic flag-printed checks. From far and wide Helen Tucker entertained visitors, especially around her July 8 birthday. In July of 2010, when Helen’s granddaughter Kayleen came from her home in Fort Collins, CO on her Harley, Helen got to ride on the motorcycle-we have a photo. Helen relished a joke. When paying the rent, she would say with a twinkle, “If this check doesn’t clear, let me know and I’ll give you another one just like it.” She shared a story with us that she recalled from “Dear Heloise.” A bachelor, who said he was not much of a cook, had a case of the “disappearing small, round hash browns.” He opened a new bag of “tater tots,” sprinkled some on a cookie sheet, and put the cookie sheet into the oven. After a while, he opened the oven door to see if they were crisp, and the tater tots had vanished. There was the cookie sheet, empty. When he looked in the freezer, the bag of tater tots was there, unopened. However, a new bag of crushed ice had been opened. Instead of tater tots, he had sprinkled

ice chunks on the cookie sheet and baked them. (It took a brave man to admit this.) We extend our sympathy to her family. Thank you for your friendship, Helen. Also, we extend our sympathy to the family of Jane Dial of Lake City, who passed away Dec. 26. Jane served on the Golden Buckle Home Board of Directors for a number of years, overseeing Sunnyview, and we appreciate her service. Thank you, Jane. Thank you to Murna Lindsey, daughter of Jack Lynch, for donating to Sunnyview a nice Sony clock radio for the guest room. We appreciate your thoughtfulness. Thank you to Sandy Feld for the homemade sweet bread! Heather and Angela from the Sunnyview kitchen staff had the idea to set up a chocolate fountain in the dining room on December 23. It was a big hit! Thank you. Christmas “un-decorating” has commenced. Thank you to Sandy and all of her helpers. So, is it harder to beautify Sunnyview for the holidays or to take everything down? We can try to get back to normal now, although we may have some confusion for a while as to what day of the week it is. Thank you to the Calhoun County Law Enforcement, the Rockwell City Police Department and the Fire Department for all their work in 2013. It was quite a year. Thank you to John and Jimmy who keep the never-ending snow removal under control.

Marie Stokes and Eloise Hillmer

Dorothy Rothfus and Marty Westering Shady Oaks residents celebrated the end of 2013 with a party on New Year’s Eve. Over 30 residents attended the event to ring in the New Year! Residents wore party hats and sang “Frosty the Snowman” and “Jingle Bells.” There were bells, tambourines, kazoos, drums, and a variety of noisemakers that residents played while singing and at the end of the New Year’s countdown. During the party, a mix of music from the 20’s - 40’s, jazz, and Holiday tunes played in the background. Party snacks included barbequed lil’ smokies, chips and salsa, pickle dip

with bagels, dried beef cheese ball, meat and cheese tray, and a variety of seasoned crackers. Beverages included hot cider, soda, and mixed drinks. Dick Nesbitt was the only one planning on staying up until midnight to ring in 2014. When asked about New Year’s resolutions, Lela Gergen responded, “I resolve not to make any resolutions this year!” Following tradition, residents sang “Aulde Lang Syne” to end the party. Residents were very much into the spirit of the occasion and wore their hats the rest of the day!

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Winner were Cindy Souder and Amelia McCormick It is hard to believe that 2014 is almost upon us. 2013 was my first full year of being the activity director at Sunny Knoll. What a fun and busy year we have had. I am so thankful to have been hired for this job, although there are time I miss cooking, nothing beats the one to one time I get to spend with our residents. We strive to have something new to do every month. New games, crafts or outings to keep things fresh and new. Christmas morning is such a

magical time, even if you live in a nursing home. A huge thank you to all the staff at Sunny Knoll who purchased gifts for our residents to open Christmas morning. Although I was in Oklahoma, I heard that everyone was surprised and happy with their gifts. We have ladies wearing new sweaters, smelling pretty with new perfume and the men smell pretty good with new cologne too! A big thank you to Patty Walters for filling in for me while I was on vacation.

We tried to do some fun things for our staff during the holidays. We had n ugly sweater contest at work. Congratulations Cindy Souder and Amelia McCormick on your wins. Although I think I should have won as my sweater had light on it! I will have to try harder to win next year! We are also busy planning a staff party for the first part of January to celebrate the holidays. Stop in and see us! May 2014 be a wonderful year for us all! Jennifer Roberts~Activity Director
