OPINION

7KH9LHZIURP+HUH E\6HQDWRU'HQQLV*XWK ,RZD6HQDWH'LVWULFW GHQQLVJXWK#OHJLVLRZDJRY The 2014 Legislative session began January 13 and is scheduled to last 100 days. Since last year was my first as State Senator, I am looking forward to hitting the ground running in 2014. I am often asked what we will be doing in regards to healthcare this session. Currently, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has approved most of Iowa’s Health and Wellness Plan with the exception of the Governor’s desire to asses a small premium to those over 50 percent of the poverty level. This would only apply to those who don’t participate in healthy activities such as annual checkups. It appears this can be resolved without legislative action. Polls in Iowa clearly show that Obamacare is not popular among our citizens. There will be continued discussion about its cost to insurance companies, the state and the people of Iowa who will ultimately bear those costs. As a farmer sitting on the Senate Ag Committee, I see more work must be done with nutrient management. If we do not decrease the amount of nutrients in our rivers, the EPA will step in and impose strict rules. I feel we are better served by having the Iowa DNR make recommendations and provide incentives for voluntary measures that are scientifically sound. I also sit on the Local Government Committee. I don’t foresee much coming up there beyond making sure that the State makes up any shortfall to County and Municipal governments caused by the property tax cuts we made last year. Another issue I expect to be kicked

around this year is road funding. We have a need to upgrade our roads and bridges, but not much agreement on how to fund that. I favor a bill that would take money out of the General Fund and place it in the constitutionally protected road fund, then designate that half of this money goes equally to each county and the rest be distributed on the basis of population. This uses money we already have rather than increasing taxes. I have heard from many constituents who are not satisfied with the actions of our elected officials in Washington D.C. We have significant problems are facing our country, and too many of the people we have put in place to solve these problems don’t seem interested in doing their job. I’m excited about a new project called Convention of States that can bypass these politicians in D.C. and allow YOU and ME to put restraints on an out of control federal government. Convention of States is a non-partisan solution to the bipartisan problem in Washington D.C. Briefly, Convention of States looks to Article V in the U.S. Constitution for 34 states to come together to propose amendments to the Constitution that lessens the presence of the federal government in your lives. Amendments under this proposal must do one of the following: 1) impose fiscal restraints on the federal government; 2) limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government; 3) or limit the terms of federal officials. Any amendment that does not meet one of those three points would not be eligible for consideration at this Convention of States. Thirty-eight states are required to

IN SEASON

ratify any amendment before it becomes law. I’m sure there will be many more issues discussed this year. I will continue to do all I can to advance the Iowa Marriage Amendment, end abortion, preserve our Constitutional rights and be fiscally responsible. I am truly grateful to represent the 4th District. Please feel free to contact me at dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov or call me at 641-430-0424.

10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, January 22, 2004 Voters in Winnebago County approved the one-cent School Infrastructure Local Option (SILO) sales tax Tuesday, January 20. The measure passed at the county level on a 699-235 count. Locally 111 voters approved the tax, while 55 were against it. The Coca Cola Company recently donated two juice dispensers, a roller cart, two boxes of POWERade mix and 500 cups to the North Iowa High School Student Council. The donation will be used by the student council to enhance sportsmanship in the North Iowa Conference by serving POWERade after varsity basketball games to their opponents and the home team, and will also be used at homecoming and high school dances. 20 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, January 20, 1994 Assistant Librarian Sharon Hippen discovered a water pipe on the second floor of the library building had broken permitting water to leak. Water damaged 1200 books, and over 400 paper backs were soaked and had to be thrown away after the insurance adjuster was at the library checking the damages and taking estimates for repairs of the physical properties of the building.

&DSLWRO+LJKOLJKWV %\5HSUHVHQWDWLYH7HGG*DVVPDQ ,RZD+RXVH'LVWULFW WHGGJDVVPDQ#OHJLVLRZDJRY On Tuesday, January 14, Governor Terry Branstad delivered his 2014 Condition of the State Address, “Iowa is Working,â€? with a focused legislative agenda: A veterans jobs plan, Home Base Iowa; connecting Iowans through increased broadband access; reducing student debt by freezing tuition at Regent universities; protecting Iowa’s children through anti-bullying legislation; and increased access to apprenticeships and job training for Iowa students and workers. Governor Branstad’s push to promote broadband expansion received a positive review from lawmakers on Tuesday. Branstad called for a “Connect Every Iowan Actâ€? that offers property tax exemptions for companies to build or upgrade their networks in areas of the state where broadband is limited or unavailable. In regards to increasing access to apprenticeships and job training for

Iowa students and workers, Legislators from both parties say they’re open to the governor’s call for tripling the state spending on apprenticeship programs next year. These apprenticeship programs would provide the kind of “hands-on� training needed on high-skilled manufacturing jobs. Governor Branstad’s budget came out on the high side. My commitment to the people of the 7th district was to spend no more than 99% of the December LSA estimate of future revenue. Neither do I think we should spend one-time money for ongoing expenses. Therefore, we should not use money from the past in our future General Fund expenditures. We made commitments to cities, counties, school districts, and more that we would backfill their loss in property taxes. We must keep our eye on that goal.

By Jason Johnson, Public Affairs Specialist, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Iowa USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is reminding Iowa farmers to refrain from surface applying manure and fertilizer to frozen, snow-covered or saturated soils. Eric Hurley, nutrient management specialist for NRCS in Des Moines, says applying manure to snow-covered or frozen soil can easily wash away during a rapid snowmelt or during early spring rains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Manure is too valuable of a resource and fertilizer is too expensive to risk runoff,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not to mention the environmental impacts it would cause.â&#x20AC;? Hurley says potash is not considered a water pollutant, but since it is such an expensive fertilizer to apply, winter application may be a risky investment that could be lost through runoff. Iowa NRCS released its updated Nutrient Management Standard in

2013, which included new language for manure application during cold weather months. Hurley says the new standard more clearly states that manure and fertilizer storage, and management systems, should avoid surface applying nutrients when the risk of runoff his high â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when soils are frozen and/or snow-covered, or when the top two inches of the soil are saturated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new standard also added fertilizer to this section of the standard, which only included manure nutrients before,â&#x20AC;? said Hurley. Municipal and industrial bio-solids are also subject to the same winter management considerations as manure. For liquid swine manure or wastewater â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in which most of the nitrogen is readily available â&#x20AC;&#x201C; farmers should apply the manure as close to when crops need it as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This generally means a spring application during a corn year in the rotation,â&#x20AC;? says Hurley. For manures that release nitrogen more slowly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as solid beef and dairy manures, manure mixed with bedding, or feedlot scrapings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fall application can be more desirable since it takes time for the nutrients to be released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the case of surface application, there is also less risk of phosphorus runoff,â&#x20AC;? said Hurley.

Manure may be surface applied to snow-covered or frozen ground on an emergency basis if storage capacity becomes insufficient due to a natural disaster, unusual weather conditions, equipment or structural failure, or other situation that creates a risk of an uncontrolled manure release. Hurley says if a farmer has or anticipates an emergency situation, they should contact their local NRCS office to prepare a manure disposal plan. Manure provides many benefits to the soil as it is incorporated, especially as a valuable source of plant nutrients. It also helps build soil structure and resistance to compaction. When manure becomes part of the soil, it reduces runoff and erosion by helping to increase the soilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water infiltration and water holding capacity. Livestock operations subject to Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) rules have different application specifications. Contact your local Iowa DNR field office for details. NRCS field office staff is available Monday through Friday to answer questions about nutrient management, or visit the Iowa NRCS website at www.ia.nrcs.usda.gov

AREA NEWS Auditor gives City clean bill of health continued from page 1

A detour was in place on Highway 9 in Buffalo Center last Friday afternoon, Jan. 17, as crews repaired a broken water main at the intersection of Highway 9 and 2nd St. NW.

operating grants, contributions and restricted interest, $86,128 from local option sales tax, $776 from unrestricted investment earnings and $106,696 from net loan proceeds and other general receipts. Disbursements for the year totaled $974,127. The disbursements included $217,309 for public safety, $130,694 for public works, $114,419 for culture and recreation, $93,375 for general government, $124,099 for debt services, $16,479 for capital projects and $277,752 for business type activities. Pump did say there were a couple of areas of concern, including the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low general fund balance. While the fund was in the black at the end of the fiscal year at a balance of $9,553, the fund started the year at a negative balance of -$103,449. Pump said a lot of work needs to be done to keep the fund from going back into the red. Another concern Pump noted was a $2,278 deficit in the employee benefits fund, and he recommended the City monitor this account in the future and correct the deficit. Pump had two recommendations relating to the Buffalo Center Volunteer Fire Department. He noted that the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bookkeeping and custody records are maintained by individuals outside the City Clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, and he recommended the fi-

nancial activity and balances of all City accounts be recorded in the Clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s records. Pump also noted that the department has authorized check signers who are not City employees, and he recommends only current City employees or Council members be authorized signers. Pumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other suggestions included further segregation of duties, such as having different people responsible for accounting and banking functions; implementing a disaster recovery plan to protect computers and files; and avoiding the use of post-dated checks. Pump found that the mayor was given an advance payment of $1,250 toward his next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, and he said the City should not allow salary payments in advance. The mayor and Council are paid annually in November. Pump also noted City officials and employees were on the list of delinquent utility accounts, and he recommended these individuals pay their bills on time to eliminate a potential conflict of interest. The Council took action at the meeting to fix an issue Pump found regarding utility billings. One commercial customer was being charged half the established rate for garbage collection, but there was no provision for this in the City Code. The Council passed an ordinance amending the code, which sets the garbage

collection fees at $13 per month for weekly collection of one yard of waste or $6.50 per month for weekly collection of one half yard of waste. Councilman Don West asked Pump how Buffalo Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt and payment terms compare to those of other cities of a similar size. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you fit the norm,â&#x20AC;? said Pump. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should be incurring some debt every few years so everything doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t collapse at once. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy.â&#x20AC;? A copy of the audit report is available for review in the office of the Auditor of State and the City Clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. In other business, the Council approved a credit card for the Buffalo Center Public Library, which may be used to purchase books and materials. The Council stipulated that the card not be used for travel or meal expenses while on City business. The City received estimates for renovations at the Buffalo Center Swimming Pool from Pool Tech Midwest, Inc. The main swimming pool needs to be resurfaced, and the estimate for that project came in at $53,139. The wading pool needs to be converted to a zero-depth entry pool to comply with regulations, and the total estimate for that project is $57,600. The Council took no action on the renovations. The Council set the date for its annual budget workshop as Wednesday, Jan. 29, beginning at 5 p.m.

Water mains back under control City crews spent much of last week patching up two broken water mains in Buffalo Center, which created some traffic disruptions. The first leak was discovered Monday under the intersection of Highway 9 and 2nd St. NW, and traffic was initially reduced to one lane Tuesday before a detour was put in place along the highway, as crews worked to isolate and repair the break. A second leak wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t located until

a few days later, when water finally started bubbling above ground outside Bethlehem Lutheran Church on 4th St. NE. Crews finished patching the main on Highway 9 last Friday, and they fixed the pipe by the Lutheran Church on Saturday. Some residents went without water for a few hours during the repairs. Duane Hinz of the public works department said he discovered there was a break when he saw the water level was down in the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water

tower. He called in Western Leak Detection to track down the leaks. Hinz says both breaks were caused by rust, including a bolt which had rusted off on the Highway 9 pipe, and a spot which rusted through on the pipe on 4th St. NE.
