Hegarty appointed to Sheffield council By Nick Pedley The Sheffield City Council is now five members strong following the appointment of Jim Hegarty at Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. The council was one member short after Nick Wilson moved into the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair Jan. 1. Four residents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sheri Bogue, Karl Sorenson, Shirley Meints and Hegarty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; expressed interest in the vancant seat. The council briefly debated how to handle the selection, but ulitmately voted to appoint Hegarty by 3-1 margin. Councilman Ken Berding cast the lone vote for Sorenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was looking to get involved with the community and I thought what better way than to jump in with both feet on the council,â&#x20AC;? Hegarty said after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheffieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful town, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to see some community growth.â&#x20AC;? Discussion on how to handle the appointment was mixed. All four of the people interested in the position received votes

during the Nov. 5 election, and the council debated appointing the highest vote-getter to fill the void. Bogue received 99 votes on the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballot in November, but she was automatically disqualified from contention for the vacant council seat because she was absent from Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. The remaining three contenders were named on the council ballot two months ago. Sorenson received 71 votes, Hegarty 62, and Meints 43. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess in my opinion the next person with most amount of votes would get it,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said during the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who you guys think is the best person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to do the job.â&#x20AC;? Berding felt the next-highest vote-getter should be awarded the seat, but the majority felt differently. Councilmen Ron Simmons, JC McCaslin and Mike McKee voted for Hegarty, who joined the group immediately after Wilson administered the oath of office. His term ex-

Sheffield citizens have the opportunity to petition for a special election if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unhappy with Hegartyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment. According to Franklin County Auditor Michelle Giddings, 46 signatures from eligible city

voters would be needed to bring the issue to a vote. In other business, the council made a decision on a vicious dog ruling that was delayed during their December meeting. The council agreed to follow city code that details rules

regarding the expulsion of dogs deamed vicious from the city limits, which will allow the animal to stay in Sheffield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since this incident, it appears theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken the steps to keep this from happening again,â&#x20AC;? said police Chief Ed Hanig An incident occurred in June when a dog owned by Ashley Schroeder was loose and bit a resident. Hanig said the department had received a handful of calls prior to that run-in claiming the dog in question was loose and taking off after people; however, no incidents have occurred since then. The council consulted with their attorney regarding their jurisdiction over the incident, but ultimately found they could do very little right now despite Schroeder pleading guilty in court to having a vicious animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the definition of our ordinance now, the way it stands, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vicious aniCOUNCIL to page 7

Jurgena wraps up career at Sukup after three decades Article submitted by Joe Buttweiler, Sukup Manufacturing After selling Sukup Manufacturing Co. products for 42 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 30 of them as an employee of the company â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Larry Jurgena retired Dec. 18 following a sendoff with gifts and heartfelt congratulations. He began working for Sukup in 1971, eventually becoming sales supervisor and, in recent years, territory manager for Montana, Oregon and Washington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always enjoyed traveling with Larry and learning from Larry,â&#x20AC;? company President Charles Sukup said at the sendoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always eager to help out at farm shows and was great with customers.â&#x20AC;? Steve Sukup, chief financial of-

ficer of the family-owned company, said Jurgena had tremendous respect within the industry because of his strong customer relations. But his kindness could be deceiving, according to Diane Hughes, sales supervisor. It helped him pull numerous pranks on fellow salesmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really going to miss you,â&#x20AC;? company founder Eugene Sukup said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we wish you and Marilyn the best. God bless you both.â&#x20AC;? Jurgena and his wife, Marilyn, celebrated their 50-year anniversary in May of 2013. They have two daughters and one son; eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. In his early years at Sukup, Jurgena did a lot of service work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It

was enjoyable to go out and fix machinery,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. His farming background â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he still farms about 200 acres of corn and soybeans near Dumont â&#x20AC;&#x201C; helped him relate to customers. Sukupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good products, warranties and customer service made it a great place to work, Jurgena said. He stepped away for 12 years to sell bins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Sukup grain handling equipment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but returned to the company in 1989. Gifts presented to Jurgena included a plaque, hat, jacket and a certificate for a recliner. As for retirement plans, he said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still going to be farming. I might do a little more fishing. Maybe do some odd jobs. And I told Eugene Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still go to some auctions if he needs me to.â&#x20AC;?

Health care costs irk supervisors Monday By Nick Pedley A 12.82 percent hike in county health care costs drew a few stern remarks from the Franklin County Board of Supervisors at their meeting Monday. Auditor Michelle Giddings reported that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) played a significant role in the increase. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insurance policy falls into compliance with the new law, but she explained 3.18 percent of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall spike was attributed to new tax fees the county must pay to help fund the ACA. That works out to $23,264 every six months, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to change, but we still have to pay,â&#x20AC;? she said. The supervisors expected an

increase in premiums this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they budgeted for a 15 percent hike in anticipation of added costs. Nonetheless, they were unhappy that 3.18 percent of the overall increase was attributed to the ACA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is totally ridiculous,â&#x20AC;? said Supervisor Mike Nolte. The group felt it was pointless to pay into the program because the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees were already covered by their own plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get no benefit from it,â&#x20AC;? said board Chair Jerry Plagge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all going to the federal level.â&#x20AC;? Despite their resentment, the supervisors admitted there was little they could do other than pay the costs. They plan to move

forward with the insurance premium renewal process at their Jan. 20 meeting. Giddings and the supervisors pointed out the ACAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unstable history in the U.S. House and Senate, and speculated about the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen a year from now. We have no clue,â&#x20AC;? said Giddings. In other business, the supervisors heard a funding request from Healthy Harvest of North Iowa for the 2014-15 budget. Coordinator Jan Libby outlined some of the programs and initiatives the agency spearheaded during the past year. She said Healthy Harvest is focused on SUPERVISORS to page 7

Alliant Energy supports Sarge

Alliant Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eric Harms poses with Franklin County Sheriff Deputy Adam Blau and his drug-sniffing dog Sarge. Alliant donated $538 in November to help pay for Sarge, who cost the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office around $6,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The corporation likes to contribute to various needs like this,â&#x20AC;? said Harms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our core value is always safety. Obviously, the dog fits right in with that value.â&#x20AC;? Blau said purchasing Sarge would have been impossible without the contributions from local businesses and individuals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of businesses and peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; support, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what keeps this program going,â&#x20AC;? he said.

IA Electric Steadily Growing In Sheffield By Travis Fischer After years of preparation, John Colombo has started up his own electrician business. Interested in the field since high school, Colombo started down the path to his career while he and a friend were considering joining the military. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We asked ourselves what we would be good at that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put us directly in combat situation,â&#x20AC;? said Colombo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never did join the military, but I did become an electrician.â&#x20AC;? Ten years later, Colombo has become a master of his trade and has now opened his own business. Based out of a workshop on his Sheffield property, IA Electric serves commercial and industrial businesses in the Franklin County area. The path to starting his own business has been a long one. It took Colombo four years of planning and preparation while working for other contractors before he was ready to strike out on his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a process to start it,â&#x20AC;? said Colombo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to put

Electrical work is a wide field and Colomboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specialty is building automation, a process that involves installing systems that automatically control things like lights and temperatures for manufacturing plants. In addition to his automation services, Colombo has taken on a variety of other jobs in the area, ranging from voice and data instillation to lighting upgrades to home remodeling projects. Colombo plans to continue on this path, gradually building up his experience and capability as he markets himself around the Franklin IA ELECTRIC to page 7

January 16, 1964 Sheffield-Chapin basketball teams split wins with Kanawha in North Star Conference games played on the Kanawha floor Friday night. Both were close and hotly contested all the way. Spartanettes won the opener 32 to 28 playing possession ball in the final four minutes. They now have a 7-1 conference record and in a threeway first place tie with RockwellSwaledale and Boone Valley. This was eighth consecutive win for the Spartanettes. Sheffield-Chapin boys lost an overtime contest 69 to 65 after playing a good floor game, failing to connect with the bucket. After trailing most of the way by a close margin the Spartans closed in for a 60-60 final reading. The overtime went to the host club 9 to 5. With the score tied at 2, 4, 5, 11, 13, Spartanettes managed to hold the edge at quartertimes 7-5, 17-15, 2622 and final 32-28 for their eighth consecutive win. Kanawha girls held a two-point deficit going into the last four minutes of the game. Guard Karen Emhoff grabbed 16 rebounds to aid her teammates in the front court who found the hoop elusive. Leona Bruhn swished the nets with 5 doubles and 6 of 11 gift shots for 16 points and game scoring honors. Donna Foell added 6 points, Pam Atkinson and Bev Levitt each 5. Emhoff, Diane Grunhovd, Jane Frey and Linda Bonjour held down defensive posts. Emhoff doing a little better than usual in grabbing rebounds, having a 14 average and grabbing 16. The team made 11 from the field and 10 of 18 free throws. They were charged with 18 fouls. Big 6-4 Tim Delger and 6-2 Ken Ruther made the going rough in the rebounding department but Spartans managed a quarter time edge of 15-12 and held the edge until late in the second period when Kanawha knotted the

count at 27 and 29 before taking a 29-36 halftime advantage. The visitors closed the three-quarter edge to a single point 45-46, and trailed closely Ron Foell hitting with a 15-foot jump shot to tie the score at 60 and send the game into overtime. Delger with 30 points from 12 field goals and 6 of 8 gift shots held game scoring honors. Ruter found the hoop for 17 counters, Tom Betten 10, Harle and Jim Betten 10. The team made 29 doubles and 11 of 20 gift shots. They were charged with 14 fouls. Foell and Dick Larson, guards, each notched 20 points for the losers, Larson pumping in 10 from the field and Foell 6 with a perfect 8 free throws. Gary Heflin added 11 points, Butch Skovgard 9 and Schmalbeck 5. Rick Taylor did not connect. The team made 24 field goals and 17 of 22 free throws. They were charged with 15 fouls. Heflin pulled in 14 rebounds and Schmalbeck 13 with big competition for the ball off the boards. Spartans now have a 8-3 season record and a 6-2 conference report to rate second in the standings.

Heginger and Brenda were Mr. and Mrs. Alva Lubkeman and sons of Rockwell.

January 19, 1984 Members of the 1983-84 SheffieldChapin basketball cheerleaders and mascot are: Deb Schroeder, Marcy Smit, Lisa Atkinson, Kris Rust, Lisa Renberg, David brown, Jill Reser and Jani Atkinson. Beth Haring-Lee is the cheerleading Advisor. The Seventh Grade girls and boys of Sheffield-Chapin Community School completed an art contest during the first semester. The contest produced some winners. The winners were the Seventh Grade girls with a total of 23 points vs. the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score of 16 points. Both classes could earn points by finishing projects on time, getting all home work in and by working quietly during art class. The winners were Dee Foss, Tracy Haack, Rena Wilson, Dalene Griner, Kim Cox, Stacy Jorgensen, Cheryl Smit, Ranae Atkinson, Jamie Sheriff, Diane Dannen, Rhonda Smit, Jennifer Peters, Jamie Larson, DeAnne Severson, Melody McGurk and Diane Ewers. For the second time this season the CAL Cadets turned back the Sheffield-Chapin Spartans, this time by a 65-55 score. The loss dropped the Spartans to 4-2 in the North Star Conference. The first half was closely fought as each team held leads, S-C 13-12 after the first quarter, and CAL 31-30 at halftime. In the second half CAL managed to widen the lead but the Spartans fought hard and kept the game within reach. However, the Spartans finally fell short by ten points. Parrish Plagge was the Spartan offensive leader scoring 17 points, grabbing nine rebounds and three steals. Randy Larson had a career high 14 points, led the team in steals with five, and took three rebounds. Brian Smit finished with 10 points, three steals and three rebounds. Pete Lahner popped in six points, stole one pass and two bounds. Rick Larson registered two points and a steal. Brent Van Horn added two points, four rebounds, one steal. Mark Lockwood grabbed five caroms and Dale Koenisgberg had four points and one steal. The Spartans edged the taller Cadets in rebounds 28-26 and fewer turnovers 13 to 19. However, CAL connected on 62% of their field goal attempts to S-Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40% field goal shooting. S-C bettered CAL from the charity lin making 14 tosses to 9. The Sheffield-Chapin Spartanettes avenged a loss that CAL dealt them prior to the Christmas break. S-C demoted the Cadets 6453. The contest started out slowly as S-C fell behind 9-2, but came

back to lead after one period 1210, expanded that lead to 27-19 at halftime, pushed it up a little more during the third period with a 4731 cushion, but CAL stormed back in the third phrase. However, the Spartanettes rode the storm out and put a lull in the eye of it, breezing home with the win. S-C hit on a fine 27-57 from the field for 47% and a nice 10-14 charity shots for 71%. Traci Prall put on a fine display of shooting as she managed 37 points, hitting 15-31 fielders and a perfect 7-7 charity shots. Lisa Heuberger hustled her way to 15 points, hitting 7-16 field goals and 1-5 gifters. Kris Peters, who was two timed most of the evening, broke loose for 12 points on 5 fielders and a perfect 2-2 freebies. Tonya Crotty led the defensive end with 11 big rebounds and three steals. Jeanne Heimer, in a helping out role, collected eight big bounds and five neat thefts. Kathy Smit chipped in with four off the boards and four steals. Kacy Bohach added two off the boards to round out the defensive stats. The guards played inspired ball, helped out, shut off crucial rallies and turned the ball over only four times. The win was a revenge as CAL had downed S-C earlier with a 28 point fourth quarter and a six point production by the locals, so it was a proving point for the local six. The win leaves S-C at 4-2 in North Star Conference action and 7-4 over all.

Fallout from Franâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freak-out

-XVW7DONLQ¡ %\-= Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good week! I can tell . . . because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still here to write about it! Actually there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been anything dramatic happening . . . a huge plus. Keeping busy trying to stay ahead of the game . . . successfully thus far. I put up with another short bout of the flu last Tuesday/ Wednesday. According to my bathroom scale . . . I lost almost five pounds. (Need I say more!) Been busy working on the newer press. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say I have it mastered as of yet . . . but I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had to call anyone for help. I have a job on it right now that requires changing printing plates 14 times. I actually spend more time changing plates than it takes to print the jobs. (I know that probably means nothing to you . . . but it takes up space telling about it!) Anyway . . . itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite time consuming . . . but nearly finished. And without a problem so far. Probably never should have said that! Home . . . just the same old routine there. I did cook (microwave) something Tuesday evening. It was shortly after that that I got sick! Now you know why I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cook! By Wednesday morning I was pretty much over it . . . but getting out of bed was a major chore! And I hurt everywhere. But Wednesdays

I spend part of the day on the road delivering papers in the local area . . . so I told myself I feel better and got the job done. By Thursday all was normal once again. Saturday up early and off to Altoona. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen them since Christmas. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how much the Little Lid changes in just a couple of weeks! Especially getting taller. And old Papa can hardly lift her anymore! It also amazes me how she can play with her iPod (I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called!). I realize that most youngsters can do this . . . but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of humbling to see them do it! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still having trouble figuring out what my telephone can do! Anyway, we had fun, then out for lunch, back home for a while, and then it was time for a nap. (I still think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her mother that needs the nap!) Stopped at a couple of antique malls on the way home. I like to go through them and see the things we had when I was a kid. Kindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; verifies that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an antique, too! Maybe even more like a primitive! Sunday was a day spent around the house doing the things that maids do. Late afternoon headed to Mason City for some needed items and supper. And so ends another week in my life. Be good, Kids+! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showtime!

Everyone loves a villain, and last week that villain proved to be head Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery. The fourth-year coach was ejected from the Hawkeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jan. 5 matchup against Wisconsin when he received back-to-back technicals after completely blowing up on the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials. His first came after he screamed at a referee, and the next came seconds later when he bumped into another official during his prolonged tirade. The incident led to a one-game suspension for the coach and a $10,000 fine for the University of Iowa. The meltdown created a lot of fodder for blog websites, sports shows and the fan base. As an Iowa fan, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say I was too proud of Franâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toddler-like fit. It cast a negative light on the program, and his ejection played a huge role in the outcome of that game. Wisconsin made five of the six free-throw attempts they received from the two technicals, and Iowa wound up losing 75-71.

Franâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freak-out was unwarranted, aggravating and simply embarrassing. I got more than my fair share of comments from Iowa State fans throughout the week ribbing me about the incident. However, I was quick to remind them that their criticisms were like the pot calling the kettle black. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, Fran looked sort of like Paul Rhoads out there spazzing out,â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d respond, referencing ISUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animated head football coach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different sport, but whatever â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I needed a comeback. I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t defend McCafferyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jan. 5 antics, but his suspension and subsequent one-game absence got me thinking about how far Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball program has come under his direction. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brash and hated by the opposition, but his tenure

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let the games beginâ&#x20AC;? is our motto for the Cribbage Den men. We always start with finger tip pushups to enable our dealing to be precise and accurate. Oh my can you truly imagine these old guys doing finger tip pushups, I mean goodness just using the fingers is a problem. We sincerely wamble while switching from table to table but we usually make it. The men and I refer to them as such because they truly were at one time, and old man time has taken its toll and they are just amblers now. As we finish our conditioning drills our hearts are pounding, our breathing rapid which in turns prepares us for battle. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping somehow these have a tad of mot in them so off we go like an elephant trying to catch a gazelle.

wife Shirley surprised us with some homemade ice cream. Roger admitted he just added the salt and Shirley cranked it all by hand, wow whatta woman. Oh I guess she did just plug it in. It was received with open mouths and topped off with Willie Wee Will Rustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cake, well Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure Anita made it and it was as awesome as the ice cream. Wilbur probably would try turning it out on the lathe! There were countless headaches from the dumb dummies eating it too fast, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think after 70 years one would know better, nope not this group right Dally! Garth Gary perch Nelson was waiting for his brain to thaw out after fishing in South Dakota in sub zero temps. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember when it was his turn to play, when it was his turn to deal and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even count to 2. Yup right in there thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fact however this congenial group helped him along like a crutch to a man with a broken leg. We are rarely comporting, and it adds nothing but spice to our games. Billy Bober Nolte and Davey Boy Levitt came up with the same answer to a difficult question and they beamed from ear to ear as they both were in the C section and hardly capable of that. However, miracles do happen especially with this group. Davey Boy left a little early and upon departing strolled over to Dally Slagle and said; â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a perfect day Dall as I did not have to play with you.â&#x20AC;? Dallas just said; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good bye David donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the door hit you ahhhh you know here on your way out.â&#x20AC;? So as Mr. Bazinga rings my door bell, and as one of my teachers told me that if I was any more stupid theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to water me twice a week. My high school principal told me that I set low personal standards and consistently failed to achieve them. Oh one of the boys told me that tibia is a country in Africa. Okay Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m outta here like a man rowing a leaking boat headed for shore. BAZINGA!

with the Hawkeyes has given the team a shot in the arm and revived a once-dormant program. The difference between McCaffery and his predecessor, Todd Lickliter, are light-years apart. First foremost, Fran actually wins games. Lickliter only compiled 38 victories during his three-year stint at Iowa. Second, even in defeat, McCafferyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams are fun to watch and keep things competitive. Lickliterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams were typically out of it 5 minutes after tipoff, and his sluggish offense made the game even more unbearable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was like watching grass grow even when the Hawks won. I think McCafferyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiery passion are what make him so endearing to us Hawkeye fans. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a contrast from Lickliter, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just nice to see somebody who visibly cares about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on out there on the court. I understand that his antics might be grating and annoying to other fan bases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I feel the exact same way about many other rival coaches (cough, cough, Paul

Rhoads, cough). I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;eye of the beholderâ&#x20AC;? type thing. As made obvious by the Jan. 5 incident, passion (or, rage) can get the best of Fran. I hate to admit it, but I really do admire ISUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head basketball coach Fred Hoiberg. I respect what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done in Ames as both a coach and player, and he definitely brings an added measure of class to that program. He wins, and he keeps a cool head doing it. Cyclones fans might not mirror that same mentality towards McCaffery, but at the very least youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to respect him for bringing the Hawkeyes back from the doldrums. The annual match-up between Iowa and ISU is competitive again, which couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be said for a long while. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just good to see the programs excelling on the national stage at the same time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its brings pride to the state and gives fans a chance to rib each other throughout the season, not just when they play each other. I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t condone Franâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spaz-outs, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to completely chide them either. Iowa reeled of a two-straight wins following his ejection including a huge road victory against No. 3 Ohio State on Sunday. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the case, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let Fran rant, rave, and scream all he wants no matter how much grief I get from you Cyclone fans out there.

Fran Young’s RETZ FUNERAL HOME

Let’s discuss a subject no one wants to talk about, but one that we feel is too important to ignore… pre-need funeral arrangements for your family. There are numerous reasons that pre-need planning is a wise thing to do. Topmost would be the comfort you will be giving your loved ones that would be left behind to deal with these heart breaking choices. Pre-need planning will definitely help those you leave behind. In the spirit of love for each other I urge you to sit down together with the people at Retz Funeral Home and make the final plans for each member of your household. Discuss favorite songs, scriptures, poems, personal

choices and ways to express how unique each person is. Don’t be left to make those decisions by yourself. You will be comforted by knowing the service that honors your loved one is just what they wanted. Their final tribute and ceremony will reflect just who they are. Believe me when I say you don’t want to put it off because tragedy can happen… often suddenly, and that’s not a good time to be forced to make spur of the moment decisions. When you are in shock you can easily overlook small details that later you regret not having made. You would be amazed at all the intricate details that go into planning a funeral. But, the people at Retz Funeral Home know. It’s their life’s work.

They have chosen to be prepared to help people through the most devastating time of their life, and they do it with dignity, gentleness and a real concern for people.

Sheffield Care Center has an admirable standard for those that enter their doors. That standard is to “Celebrate life”. For their staff it’s an ongoing attitude that begins on their first day of work when they are encouraged to make a positive difference each day in the lives of their residents. From that point, staff meetings teach them how their mission to “positively influence each life they touch” doesn’t allow for judgment or opinions to affect the value that they give each life that becomes part of their organization, either as a resident, their family, or the delivery person who brings in bread each

week. This unique approach to staff training resident care creates an environment where the residents are not only cared for, but becomes part of their daily life as they help them to look past limitations and find those aspects of their life that they can enjoy. The relationships between the staff and residents are just as significant as the medical services they provide. With this combination they are able to meet the high standards that they hold. In addition to these aspects of daily life; Sheffield Care Center at 100 Bennett Drive in Sheffield (641-892-4691) is a skilled nursing facility that pro-

vides therapy and rehab programs for residents and on an outpatient basis too, including physical, occupational and speech therapy. Whether a person needs short or long term skilled nursing services; their approach to each day with a focus on celebrating life enhances their medical program and elevates their quality care to a level that supersedes most people’s expectations of a nursing home experience. When you’re searching for the best home for yourself or someone you love, it is with great joy that we encourage you to stop by Sheffield Care Center. Join them in their efforts to make each day the very best it can be.

Let’s get right down to where the “rubber meets the road” and talk about tires. And then let’s talk about the best place to go to get just about anything, or any brand of tires you want at the most competitive prices around… Jon’s Auto & Truck Repair at 202 E. Gilman St in Sheffield (641892-4260). It just makes good sense to buy new tires. After all, your tires are all that’s between you and a slick wet road, and good tires are even more important when the roads are icy, or it’s snowing. Perhaps you already know that you need to replace tires on your light truck or passenger vehicles. Well then, your next step would be to make sure

you go to Jon’s Auto & Truck Repair where their experience and dedication to service equal the quality of the tires they sell and the auto and truck repair service they provide. At Jon’s Auto & Truck Repair they have earned loyal customers through the years just because of the high caliber of service they provide. We all spend a lot of time in our vehicles so when your vehicle is not running right, or at all remember that Jon gives great service on computerized alignments, brakes, ball joints, struts, tune-ups and your regular maintenance and oil changes. If your “front end” is shaking while you’re going down the road don’t wait another

minute, go to Jon’s for an alignment. He’s got alignment equipment that is better, faster and has the latest technology. We’d like to take this time to remind you to go take a good look at the tread on your tires, and on any vehicle you and your family drive. If the tread is getting thin don’t put off getting new tires, like we said before, when the road conditions are hazardous… and they frequently are… you don’t want to have any regrets that you didn’t get tires when you should have, especially since Jon’s Auto & Truck Repair keeps their tires and service priced right.

Sponsored by: Dr. Eric Wagner Going to the dentist now is not like it was in the “old days” and that’s due to all the advances in technology and techniques. We can assure you that Dr. Eric Wagner will make you comfortable through whatever procedure you’re having done. It’s also true that you’ll really do your children a big favor if you start them off early with regular appointments. Their teeth will definitely benefit and they won’t be anxious when it’s time for their annual check-ups and cleaning like some folks are. You’re wise to make regular dental

appointments for yourself and your family for cleaning and check-ups as you can prevent a lot of dental problems from starting or becoming worse through neglect. It just doesn’t make good sense to wait to see a dentist if you’ve been experiencing any dental pain, or have crowded or crooked teeth, bleeding or tender gums or cavities. Perhaps you have put off calling for an appointment because you’re one of the people that are uneasy about dental visits period. Well, we are happy to say that there is a local dentist who understands “Dental Anxiety” and who goes out

of his way to reassure his patients and see that they are comfortable and at ease while giving them expert dental care and that’s Dr. Eric Wagner in Sheffield. When you want to have the confidence that you are calling on a professional and compassionate dentist, one that has a gentle touch and years of experience we are happy to have the opportunity to recommend you call Wagner Dental Clinic at 213 Gilman in Sheffield at 641-892-4898. Remember if you neglect your teeth you can kiss your smile good-bye… so brush, and floss, and see your dentist often.

A name that stands out as a leader in our area since 1963 is Sukup Mfg. In our opinion this family-owned manufacturer has done more than their share to aid in our growth and development. We feel this is true because they provide employment opportunities for many of our local people, over 550. That alone makes them a cornerstone in our financial community. The excellent grain handling equipment they manufacture is just the icing on the cake. You would have to look very hard to find a more community minded firm than Sukup Mfg. The prosperity and growth that our area enjoys is a direct result of their being a part

of the financial strength of the many people who come in contact with Sukup Mfg in Sheffield (641-8924222) through employment and the many dealers throughout the US that distribute and sell their grain bins & dryers, material handling equipment, and steel buildings for farm and commercial use. We suggest you visit their website at sukup.com for more information on this amazing company. Their management team is more than competent and it is due to their excellent management capabilities, and dedication of their employees, that Sukup Mfg continues to uphold their high standard of quality in the

grain handling equipment and steel buildings they manufacture. They are deserving of praise for so many reasons including their contribution toward the growth of our area through the many projects they have started or are involved in locally. We, the authors of this Review, are proud to add our thanks to Sukup Mfg for being part of our community. Their position in the growth of our area is more than adequate reason to give them the recognition they deserve. Our hats are off to Sukup Mfg… they are leading the way and building our future.

Those of us who live in the “Heartland” know about good oldfashioned values like hard work, integrity, being frugal, and freedom to make choices. We’re happy to say that Auto Edge in Denison lives by those values. At Auto Edge at 4750 4th St SW in Mason City (641-423-1393) their word is as good as gold, and they’ve got very competitive prices. Auto Edge has lots of great top of the line vehicles to choose from with names you can trust. They’ll have a car, truck or SUV that will be just what you’re looking for. You’ll love their service

and their relaxed no pressure atmosphere. Auto Edge has a “lot” full of preloved vehicles ready for you to look over and test drive. They have great choices to help you be environmentally conscious and gas efficient, or a truck that will get the job you need done. We like to say that Auto Edge is small town friendly and big city stocked. They are definitely worth looking over. The team at Auto Edge can take pride in knowing they help their customers make the wisest choice for them. They know their business thoroughly and can help you find just the

right vehicle for you, one that will fit your lifestyle and your budget. We all spend a lot of time in our vehicles and we depend on them to get us to work, school, shopping, Church… so you want to go to a dealer that appreciates just how important it is for you to get the best value, the right vehicle for your money, and who will be there when you want to go back again for another car. At Auto Edge they’re going to treat you right, every time. They’re on a few smiles away up Hwy 65, so stop by today and drive away in the car of your dreams from Auto Edge in Mason City.

When people are looking for the home of their dreams, or wondering about the best way to sell theirs, they obviously have many questions and concerns… where to look, how to find the home that meets their needs and price range, how to handle the paperwork, and that’s just for starters. Fortunately we have one local agency to answer these questions and take care of these needs and that’s Abbott Realty at 2 1st Street Northwest in Hampton (641-456-4707). Choosing a real estate agency is a big decision. You need a realtor who will protect your interests, real people you know and can trust. After all, these decisions will affect the

future financial security of yourself and your family. That’s why we’re recommending Kathy Stanbrough, Owner/Broker/Realtor and Chuck Svendsen, Realtor at Abbott Realty. While Abbott Realty has grown to become one of the most successful real estate agencies in the region, their personalized service always remains the same. Their clients are truly the ones who benefit by their conscientious attention to detail when they are assisting them through the process of buying or selling a home, property or business. We have been impressed with the honesty and integrity of Kathy and Chuck, and the way they care about the people who depend upon them. After all, when you speak to them

you’re talking with a friend, or a neighbor, someone who knows you, and who understands your perspective. You’re also talking to an experienced real estate professional, one who is going to work hard for you. Abbott Realty offers a wide range of tools to help buyers and sellers. They believe in meeting your expectations in every way possible. When you want to buy or sell real estate we urge you to contact Abbott Realty. We can assure you that you’re wise to do so. Log on to hamptoniowarealestate. com and you’ll be impressed. Be sure to sign up for their montly newsletter or “like” them on Facebook.

First Security Bank & Trust is committed to financial literacy as a way of life. “We sponsor the EVERFI program to 7 of our area high schools,” commented Kim Groh, First Security VP/Branch Manager. EVERFI is an online financial literacy program associated with the I Have a Plan initiative. It is designed to provide students with real world skills in savings, banking, managing credit, obtaining financial aid, renting an apartment, taxes, insurance, and investing. There are ten modules followed by a simulation which requires approximately six hours to complete. EVERFI is also aligned with the Financial Literacy standards of the Iowa Core Curriculum. Randy Bohman, liaison for First Security coordinates and works with each school to guide implementation. “Our goals are to provide assistance and support from beginning to certification of each student in each school,” remarks First Security’s Randy Bohman. “We also feel it is important to recognize those student who have completed it by facilitating a certificate ceremony.” In 2012 First Security expanded their sponsorship of financial literacy to include The Vault™- Understanding Money. This new financial literacy platform, geared toward students 4th through 6th grade, empowers children to start cultivating good financial habits early. The program will be offered and implemented in 10 local

schools at no cost to the school. “The Vault™- Understanding Money is an incredible new learning tool that appropriately brings financial concepts to life for young children,” said Bohman of First Security. First Security completed the circle of financial literacy this year by introducing an adult program called Common Cent$. This new adult financial literacy program is now available to parents, first time homebuyers, college students, newlyweds and any First Security customer with the desire to become financially savvy. This is also a web-based program designed to be a resource on important financial topics such as savings, mortgages, credit scores/reports, financing higher education and more. The program is organized into eight easy-to-navigate modules that gives the user the flexibility to learn at their own pace whenever it is convenient. “First Security believes it is imperative for all generations to be equipped with financial skills,” commented Groh. “These interactive, self-paced online programs will help develop critical life skills that will be valuable for lifelong financial success.” Innovative mobile technologies and new competitive products were introduced in 2013. The year began with implementation of an iPhone App, a new full-featured mobile banking platform called Mobile Money, Mortgagebot online mortgage lending, entry into social media as a market-

ing and service opportunity, and the Kasasa deposit services family. “For 2014, we will continue to bring to our market additional products for both borrowers and depositors,” says Groh. “We will also be considering further enhancements to our webbased offerings for both consumers and businesses.” The most recent enhancement to First Security’s mobile capabilities is Mobile Deposit. Deposit checks anywhere, anytime with Mobile Deposit. With Mobile Deposit you have the ability to deposit checks from camera-equipped smartphones and tablets, saving time and providing quicker access to funds. To begin, simply download the FSBT Mobile Deposit App by searching FSBT Mobile. Open the app on your device and key in the deposit amount. Endorse your checks and take pictures with your phone as directed. Submit! “During inclement weather this Winter, we posted instructions on our Facebook page for Mobile Deposit. Many customers saved a trip to the bank on icy roads,” remarked Groh. “When you’re busy, mobile deposits are a fast and secure solution.” Finally, First Security continues to increase their investment back into the communities they serve. Their strong commitment to this area reaps rewards for the communities as well as the bank, and plans are to see this involvement continue to grow over the years.

They felt the agency helps promote Franklin County food producers by giving them more outlets and opportunities to sell there goods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see where you guys are coming from and I can see thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a benefit,â&#x20AC;? said Nolte. After extensive discussion, the supervisors agreed to attempt to budget $2,300 for Healthy Harvest in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it has more merit than some of the other things we fund,â&#x20AC;? said Nolte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see this as an opportunity to help local producers.

Building an electrician business is no small investment. It requires constant training and numerous expensive tools. As IA Electric grows, Colombo anticipates having to take on new jobs that give him an excuse to purchase new equipment or utilize a different skill set. These jobs may provide little or no profit, but will serve to build up his inventory of equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we grow it slow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too big of an issue,â&#x20AC;? said Colombo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably lose money [on an individual job], but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do it so we can do it again in the future.â&#x20AC;? Colombo has also learned that being part of a community is just as important a part of running a business as knowing your trade. This winter, IA Electric has provided emergency repair service to needy families at a reduced cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charity is paramount when it comes to business,â&#x20AC;? said Colombo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We support many programs and organizations that provide services to the people of North Central Iowa, and intend to do so as long as we are in business.â&#x20AC;?
