Lady Eagles break through, win twice in past week’s action Crail hits for double-double in both games, Cooper, Almond also do well BY LES HOUSER wrightcosports@gmail.com

Have no doubts now that while the Eagle Grove girls varsity basketball team has been going through a losing drought so far this season, they have also been learning, growing and just building for the day when it would all come together and they would maybe surprise someone. That time has arrived. Within the span of roughly 48 hours, the team won their first two games of the season. After getting by conference foe Iowa Falls-Alden 4844 at home last Tuesday, they went on the road and used a dominating performance to dispose of Prairie Valley 55-31 at Gowrie on Thursday. The Cadets led 8-5 after one quarter, only to have the purple and gold hang tough to go up 20-19 at the break. Iowa Falls-Alden would gain a five point edge through the third quarter, but again the Lady Eagles rallied back led by the strong fourth quarter play of senior Megan Crail. She would continually drive into the lane, daring the Cadets to stop her. She would either score or draw the foul, if not both, and her 9 of 14 from the line made the difference down the stretch. “I was so proud of the effort our girls put forth throughout the entire game, and couldn’t be happier that they found success,” said an elated head coach Aly Dahlhauser. “It was a close game, with the lead changing all the time, but they kept their composure and played smart and tough basketball all the way through.

Discovering a new you BY KIM DEMORY egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net It’s the start of a new year, and a chance to discover something new about yourself; a chance to enjoy a little “me time” and maybe learn a thing or two about yourself. That’s exactly what these local women did, joining some 20+ other people at Unkies for a night of creative experience on Monday, Jan. 13. While a few participants had painted before, many had never done anything more than what was required in high school art class. None-the-less, they all proved to have a little bit of aspiring artist inside of them. In fact, many were pleasantly surprised at how their “masterpieces” turned out. “My painting turned out a lot better than I had anticipated! I have gotten a lot of compliments on it,” Mary Phillips admitted. At the beginning of the class, taught by former Eagle Grove Elementary Art Teacher Diane O’Hern for Creative Spirits of Okoboji, several made comments about their lack of creativity, their inability to paint, and one even said it would probably look nice hanging on the wall inside her closet. It was

apparent that everyone was there for nothing more than a good time with new and old friends, and they were willing to laugh at the mistakes they made and compliment the works of the person sitting next to them. But most importantly, they were there because they were willing to step outside of their comfort zone and try something new. Many of the first-timers discovered that while their painting may not go up for sale on Ebay for thousands of dollars, it is something they will proudly display in their home. After all, this piece of art has such a great story that goes along with it; you can’t say that about something you buy from a store and hang on your wall. “It really was a lot of fun even though I don’t consider myself “artsy,” said Jan Dencklau. “I told my husband I certainly would not be quitting my job but it was really a great experience to do something that I have never done before - along with many friends whom had also never painted! It was fun to laugh together and to see the many different ideas and talent that people have! I would certainly do it again!”

Research shows that trying new things is a great way to keep your mind sharp. Just ask any of these ladies who participated in this painting class for the first time, and they’ll most-likely tell you it was good for their overall wellbeing as well. Laughter is the best medicine, and there was plenty of that going on around the room as people made light of the new craft they were learning. “My sister and niece had done similar painting (classes) in the Twin Cities and they said that they had a fun time together, so when this class was put together back in November, I signed up right away,” said Janice Andersen. “Was it a little nerve racking? Sure it was. Was there lots of laughs? Absolutely. Did it turn out perfect....well, no, but it was a learning and creative experience that I’ll never forget, and if there was another class, I’d sign up again.” As one of the newest trends in entertainment, Creative Spirits has a variety of locations and events taking place around Iowa. Think a painting class sounds like fun but don’t think you would be good at Continued on Page 3

Upper Des Moines Opportunity welcomes new outreach specialist Bell hopes to expand public’s awareness of their Baby Nook BY KIM DEMORY egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net Vicky Bell of Goldfield joined the Wright County Upper Des Moines Opportunity staff on December 2, 2013. As a student working towards her bachelor’s degree in human services, Bell believes working at UDMO in Eagle Grove is the perfect fit for her. As an outreach specialist, Bell works 30 hours per week, and is hoping to bring some light onto the wonderful Baby Nook UDMO features. The Baby Nook has been a part of the facility for a while, but they are pleased to say this area of service is now getting more focus. A mother (with a child zero to two years of age) in need of assistance can qualify for a package of diapers, wipes, four outfits, one sleeper, one blanket, one pair of shoes, a jacket, and more per child every three months. All of these items are distributed free of charge. The Baby Nook is funded through community donations of gently used and (preferably) new items. “It’s really nice to offer a mommy a new outfit for her baby,” said Wright County Outreach Director Mary Ohrtman. Companies can also support the Baby Nook, as Hagie Manufacturing did. Their employees held a baby drive, collecting numerous items for the cause.

Supervisors set drainage district hearing By Les houser wrightcosports@gmail.com

With two agenda items postponed due to the weather, the Wright County Supervisors dealt with a much shorter agenda for their weekly regular meeting. With Sheriff Jason Schluttenhofer present, they received and approved the agreement with the Union representing the Sheriff’s Office & Jail personnel. The pact has already been ratified by the local Union. “We got your men to pay scale and matched up about right,” said Supervisor Stan Watne. “I like the wage scale as proposed, and it’s the first time we’ve signed a four-year deal,” replied Schluttenhofer. “It’s a very fair contract, and I feel negotiations went very smoothly.” The Board signed the cost allocation plan for local administrative expenses. The areas included are targeted case management, DHS and mental health. According to Auditor Betty Ellis, the $11,974 the county will receive back is for doing payroll, which the State then reimburses back to each county for that work. The Board, in their role as drainage district trustees, also acted

on a few items. As presented by drainage clerk Deb Lukes, they approved and signed pay estimate no. 4 to Gehrke Construction for $12,842 for work in DD#176/sub-district #31. They also signed change order no. 2, to the same contractor, for silt check, installation and mobilization in the amount of $2,558.27. A completion hearing for the 176/31 project was also set for February 17 at 11 a.m. in the Supervisors boardroom. Finally, a conference call was held with the Hancock County Supervisors. Hancock is the control county for joint DD#121-54. Brandon Vogel, with McClure Engineering, was present in Britt to give the report. He told the trustees that part of the main, along with a lateral, appeared to be plugged. He presented five options, ranging from replacement of the entire main with a 1/2” coefficient as the most costly to placing a new tile going towards an open ditch (part of a neighboring district) which then drains into Twin Lakes as the cheapest solution. The information will now be presented to affected landowners at a public hearing March 24 at 2 p.m. in the Hancock Supervisors boardroom.

Volunteers make 4-H programs a success

By Kim demory egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net 4-H Programs in Wright County are as strong as ever, especially in Eagle Grove where the Wright Warriors have more than 40 active club members. Of course, none of this would be possible without the time and effort of volunteers. In addition to the leader, Phyllis Larson, there is a whole support group of people ranging from parents, to local business people, to community members who lend of their time and talents to enhance the experience of 4-H for area youth. On Saturday, Jan. 11, Dave Tjarks, Jaci Anderson, and Kalli Olson were three of those volunteers who took time out of the day to offer workshops at the Wright Warriors monthly meeting. After the workshops, most of them either had a project ready for the July 2014 fair, or at least had some practice so they could have a completed project by July for the fair. Olson was a last-minute stand-in replacement, which was especially appreciated as the individual who was scheduled to teach had a family emergency. Olson stepped up to the plate and taught a jewelry making class. The kids, both boys and girls, enjoyed working with the beads

and charms. They learned that while it can give you the freedom to express your own style when you make jewelry, it also takes patience. Making jewelry was only the starting point for these kids. Who knows what else they may create with beads for the fair. Bookmarks are always a useful item that are fun to customize. Wright Warrior members who chose to do their workshop with Tjarks learned all about raising rabbits. The wealth of information he provided to the kids will undoubtedly help them be better prepared when they bring their own rabbits to compete at this year’s Wright County Fair. Everyone from the experienced to the novice rabbit raiser learned something useful. Watch for some great things from the Wright County rabbit show this year. Jaci Anderson kept kids busy in the kitchen making homemade crust for pizza and using leftover dough to make cinnamon sugar chips. The 4-Hers enjoyed creating their culinary masterpieces, but they enjoyed eating them more. When kids bring baked goods to the county fair, they are always encouraged to prepare the item several times throughout the year, experimenting with different baking times, temperatures, or ingredient measurements. After

all, they say practice makes perfect, and when it comes judging time at the fair, the judges are looking for consistency, taste, and appearance. While you most certainly won’t see any pizzas in the Wright County Fair 4-H judging building, you might see a few cinnamon chips, or maybe the kids will take what they learned and bake something totally different. That’s the great thing about 4-H, there’s something for everyone and learning one new thing can open a whole lot of doors they never knew they would enjoy. Senior members of the Wright Warriors spent Saturday at Crystalwood Creations. They had to travel off-sight because of specialty tools needed to create their decorative glass projects. If you see stained glass in their booth at the fair, it will most likely be a project created during their workshop. Del Kramersmeier also offered a woodworking workshop on Saturday, Jan. 25 at his home. This is the third year Kramersmeier has done classes with Wright Warrior members. It’s always a popular choice among the kids. His classes are always held offsite for equipment purposes.

This year, after going over safety and equipment issues, Kramersmeier had the kids work on a tic-tac-toe and golf tee games. He worked with them using the equipment, drilling holes and sanding. They kids were instructed to varnish or paint their games at home before the fair, but they were told that if they needed any extra help to not be afraid to give Kramersmeier a call. If you’ve seen any of the Wright Warriors’ woodworking entries in past years (tool boxes and covered wagons), you know that the kids really take away a lot of knowledge in woodworking from this skilled crafter. If you have a talent or hobby you would like to share with the members of the Wright Warriors 4-H club, they are always looking for new volunteers. The knowledge you have to offer could open up a world of opportunity for the youth of this community. For more information, please contact Larson or stop by a Wright Warrior 4-H meeting, held the second Saturday of every month in the Samuel Lutheran Church basement starting at 10 a.m.

— Eagle Grove Chamber, looking back, moving forward —

BY KIM DEMORY egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net The Eagle Grove Chamber of Commerce held their annual banquet on Monday, Jan. 20. Despite cold and blowing snow, a large crowd still turned out to enjoy the event held at Boone River Grill, catered by Family Table. After a brief welcome from Chamber President Dr. Aaron Parrott, Mike Ryerson asked the crowd to take a moment and look at their place mats which featured some old Eagle Grove photos and trivia questions. These place mats, and Ryerson’s commentary, were new and interesting to some, while it took others back down memory lane. It left several of them, like Gwen Amonson, Sterling Anderson, and Linda Peterson, nodding their heads as they remembered old buildings and businesses. After a fabulous meal was enjoyed, Dr. Parrott took a moment to recognize the recently resigned Chamber director, Rachel Cahalan, for the dedication she has shown over the last four years. The Chamber board presented her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for all the hard work she has done to help bring Eagle Grove to where it is today. “We are definitely trying to fill some big shoes,” Dr. Parrott said of looking for a new director to hire. “Rachel did a lot for us.” He went on to tell the crowd that while the Chamber is in transition mode, they are looking forward to 2014 and all it has in store for the community. In the meantime, he asked that the public please bare with them as they move forward with a new director and a new year. “We’re always available and always looking for suggestions to get people involved,” Dr. Parrott stated. Although a new director has not yet been hired, they have set some goals for 2014 - one of those is to continue successful fundraising events. Some of last year’s fundraising efforts included the John Morgan Bowling night, Summerfest, Chamber Golf Outing, the craft show, and the lemonade stand. They hope all will be as successful in 2014 as they were in 2013. Other goals of the Chamber continue to be membership retention and a new membership drive. Retail Terri Jo Meyer spoke on behalf of the Retail Association. Serving as co-chair with Jim Christ, Meyer wanted to thank everyone for their support throughout 2013, and hopes that support will continue into 2014. She went on to encourage people to take a look around town to see how retail has grown in Eagle Grove. There is Bomgaars, a new

Dollar General store, a new Mexican restaurant, and G’s Smoker. Some of the retail sponsored events in 2013 featured the “Ham it up” Easter promo, a billboard along Hwy 17 about shopping local, punch cards in correlation with the Eagle Grove Craft Show, Dash for Cash, and Festival of Trees in store fronts. Also new this year was the holiday Sip & Stroll through Eagle Grove. They are hoping that many have heard about the event and will participate in the next one. Ambassadors Roi Anne Gearhart spoke on behalf of the Eagle Grove Ambassadors and how she became involved in the first place. Her husband, Sterling Anderson, has been a proud Ambassador for years. After Gearhart retired from teaching, he asked her to join him for a meeting. “It’s a great group. We have a lot of fun,” Anderson told his wife. She agreed to go and has been an Ambassador ever since. Ambassadors in the last year sponsored numerous Chamber Coffees and After Hours, the Red Apple Luncheon, helped at the Eagle Grove Craft Show, and planned another successful Ladies Night Out in April. Watch for all of these wonderful events to return in 2014. Gearhart said there are currently six to 10 Ambassadors in Eagle Grove, but they are always looking for more. “If you want to join, you are always welcome,” said Gearhart. CDC Jerry Maier has taken over as the new president of the Eagle Grove Community Development Corporation. “Our focus the last five years has been clean-up efforts on main street north out of town and getting businesses in,” Maier told the crowd. He went on to say that the CDC is proud to say that they’ve in some way had their hands in about 90 percent of the change that Eagle Grove has seen in recent years. Maier also encouraged current or want-to-be business owners to check out the Revolving Loan Funds available through the CDC. They have $60,000 that needs to be borrowed out in increments up to $25,000 before the end of the year. This is a low-interest loan for businesses starting up or making improvements sponsored by the USDA. Maier also thanked the Chamber for all of their help in the past.

Discovering a new you

Continued from Page 1 it? Dare yourself to find out. At the very least, you’re guaranteed to have fun. If you really don’t think painting is for you, challenge yourself to try something completely new. Take a Zumba class, sign up to Deliver Mealson-Wheels, join a book club, try your hand at ice fishing…just try something, anything new. It could even be as simple as eating supper for breakfast and breakfast for supper. You just might amaze yourself at how much you enjoy the

new experience, no matter what it is. “It was a blast…I am trying to step outside my normal routine and try new things,” said Deb Strachan. “This painting class and a pedicure were both new things for me in 2014…and I have a gift certificate for a massage that will also be a new experience for me.” So what are you waiting for? Will you try something new this year? You just might wonder why it took you so long to discover something new and a happier you.

about a subject near and dear to both of their hearts - Our Foundation for the Future. “We seem to be a secret to a lot of people,” said Peterson Money they have donated to help fund area projects include, but are not limited to: a new greenhouse at Robert Blue Middle School, a new concession stand at the ball fields in Eagle Grove, new playground equipment in Vincent, a cover for the pool at Wright Medical Wellness Center, and so much more. “We have been fortunate to be the recipients of estates and local individuals contributions the last few years,” Peterson said as to how these projects are funded. Representatives who serve on the Our Foundation Board include individuals from Thor, Vincent, Eagle Grove, and Woolstock. Their are also reps from Security Savings Bank, First State Bank, Wells Fargo, the City of Eagle Grove, the Eagle Grove Area School District, the Eagle Grove Chamber, and at-large members. If you have a project you would like to be considered for an Our Foundation for the Future grant, please contact Peterson or Amonson. Eagle Grove History Jo Elberg concluded the evening’s events with a brief look at Eagle Grove’s amazing history. Donning her best “history gossip hat,” Elberg shared many interesting facts, like did you know that at one time 500 Sioux Indians camped along the Boone River? Did you know that when Eagle Grove settlers needed seeds, clothes, or other goods, they had to travel to Des Moines, Muscatine, or Iowa City to get them?

Wright County Caucus held

The election process in Iowa kicked off across the state on Tuesday evening, January 21; Wright County was no exception. Pictured is a portion of the more than fifty people who braved a cold, windy night to attend the county caucus held at the Clarion-Goldfield High School Library. The evening’s agenda included gathering petition signatures which allows names to be placed on county, state, and national election ballots; selecting delegates to the county convention and the county committee; and adding ideas to what will ultimately become the national Republican Party platform. No Wright County Democrat caucus was held in 2014. Photo by Karen Weld

She also went on to educate the crowd that Goldfield used to be known as Liberty; Lela Howland’s parents owned one of the first hotels in Eagle Grove; sidewalks used to be built up on stilts in Eagle Grove to keep them out of the water; and that of 10 million people lost in WWI, 18 of them were from Wright County the first one of Chinese descent. While everyone enjoyed taking a look back at Eagle Grove, from its beginnings to current date, those in leadership positions are excited about what is in front of them. They look optimistically to the future, and hope this will be the year that you get involved with one of the above mentioned groups and change Eagle Grove for the better.

Tyse Brosomle pays careful attention to detail as she painted one of the crowd-favorite paintings during the evening’s class.

Jennifer’s Produce tidbits

Welcome back to produce tidbits. This week with the Super Bowl just around the corner, I thought that I would write about something people use a record amount of during the Super Bowl Game and that is avocados. Yep, that’s right. Avocados are one of the number one things used in dips for the Super Bowl parties we host. I couldn’t help but chuckle a little bit when I read that the word avocado gets its name from the Latin American word “ahuacatl,” which means “testicle” (no kidding) an obvious reference to it’s shape, of course. Avocados originated in Mexico somewhere around 291 B.C. The Aztec’s consumed avocados, and believed that they were a sexual stimulant. Avocados are referred to by many other names, such as “avocado pear” or “alligator pear,” because of their rough outer texture. There are many different varieties of avocados. I’m sure many of you have heard of the Hass, which most chefs’s prefer. The big question I asked was “Is an avocado a fruit or a vegetable?” If you said fruit, then you are correct. Many people believe that avocados are vegetables because they are so often used in salads and they taste like a vegetable, but they are actually a fruit. Did you also know that avocados are an excellent source of vitamin E, and low in calories? Vitamin E is needed by our bodies for normal functioning, as well as an antioxidant. Avocados also contain vitamin C, thiamine, and riboflavin. Many people avoid eating avocados because they know they have a high fat count. But did you know that it is a monounsaturated fat, which some believe will actually help you lower your cholesterol? I have included a recipe this week for a dip called Chunky Guacamole. Give it a try for your Super Bowl party! Don’t forget to check out all the ingredients needed for the

Chunky Guacamole in our Produce Department at Fareway, where we are ALWAYS BEST AT FRESH! Have a super fantastic week and until next time, good-bye! Oh, and GO BRONCO’S! Chunky Guacamole Ingredients: 1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped 1 fresh green chile, Serrano or jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped 1 ripe medium to large tomato, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped 10 fresh cilantro leaves, chopped 3 ripe, medium-sized avocados ½ tsp. salt Juice from ½ lime. Preparation: Remove avocado flesh and add lime juice and salt and mash together, until a lumpy consistency. Add the onion and the rest of the chopped vegetables and mix to a chunky consistency. Cover the guacamole with a sheet of plastic wrap, pushing the wrap down to make contact with the entire surface to prevent browning. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors. Serve with tortilla chips or as a condiment with fajitas or tacos. Yield: 3 cups

Wright Warriors meet

The monthly meeting of the Wright Warriors 4-H Club was held January 11, 2014, at Samuel Lutheran Church. The meeting was called to order at 12:06 by our treasurer Olivia Flumerfelt, for our President, Vice President, and Secretary could not attend. Hannah Demory then led the club in The Pledge of Allegiance. The club first talked about the Leader Dog Project where leaders Maggie Wachowiak and Hannah Demory informed the club that they had talked to Mr. Jeske about starting the Leader Dog Program at the Robert Blue Middle School, and that they planned on presenting at the next school assembly. For the Activities for Soldiers, the club was asked that each member write one full page letter for a soldier. The club was also informed that we will start sewing pillowcases for the wounded soldiers. If a club member would like to donate fabric it must be patriotic and a minimum of one yard. In new business the club talked about the Family Meal in February. We decided that this year would be a Hawaiian theme. Phyllis reminded us that every family planning on attending should bring some sort of food dish and that drinks will be provided. She also reminded us that if you have more that one 4-H member in your family you should bring more than one food dish. Every dish should feed around 12 people. Also remember to bring the recipe for the dish you brought, for Phyllis is going to be making up a recipe book as to what we have brought. Remember if you would like to purchase a 4-H T-shirt the order form will be at the Family Meal. The meeting was then adjourned by treasurer Olivia Flumerfelt at 12:39. After the meeting, the club enjoyed snacks brought by Olivia Flumerfelt, Sabrina Flumerfelt, Jayda Scott, and Shea Whaley. Drinks were brought by Olivia Flumerfelt, Sabrina Flumerfelt, Jayda Scott, and Jacie Crutcher. After a nice refreshment, the club then sat down and watched as Kiera Matthes, Hannah Demory, Jacie Crutcher, and Maggie Wachowiak gave presentation. After the presentations were completed, the club was then able to go to their workshops where they got to learn several new things that would be useful for fair time.

Laurent (Frenchy) Grandgeorge, 80, passed away Tuesday, January 21, 2014, at the Fort Dodge Villa Care Center. The funeral and burial will be at the French Church in Woolstock later this spring. He was born on December 31, 1933, in Strasbourg, France. His family came to America in 1947 and settled in the Woolstock area. He served his country in the US Army. Laurent’s marriage to Rea Dean Wilson of Webster City produced a son, Duane Christian of Webster City. In 1959, he married the love of his life, Colleen Maree Pringle of Webster City. They resided in Webster City many years and had four children: Connie Grandgeorge Nicoletti and partner, David Haynes, of Eagle Grove and Duncombe, Ron (Pat) Grandgeorge of Omaha, Neb., Collette (Darwin) Pohlman of Eagle Grove, and Randy Grandgeorge and partner, Lisa Moss, of Eagle Grove. Laurent worked at New Idea Avco in Fort Dodge and became involved in the UAW until they closed. He

then went to work at the Nissen Company in Webster City until it closed. He became the chief union steward at Nissen’s and belonged to the United Food and Commercial Workers Meat Cutters Local P31 in Fort Dodge. He served on the Executive Board and negotiated

Laurent Grandgeorge

In retirement, they moved to Woolstock. Laurent was instrumental in establishing Sister Cities between the Ban de la Roche, France, and Woolstock. He created the Friends of the Ban de la Roche French Club and actively served as president for 20 years.

Dale B. Thomason, 87, Eagle Grove

Dale Burton Thomason, the son of Willard and Florence (Thompson) Thomason, was born November 24, 1926, on a farm east of Eagle Grove where he lived until he graduated from Eagle Grove High School in 1944. That same year, Dale enlisted in the Merchant Marines and was sent to Sheep’s Head Bay in New York. In the spring of 1945, he contracted rheumatic fever and received a medical discharge. After only three weeks back home, Dale was drafted into the Army and stationed at Camp Hood in Colorado. Dale also served in Europe from 1945-1948, where he met and married his wife, Genevieve Ducastelle on February 17, 1947, in Pouillon, France. They continued to live there until Dale was honorably discharged in November of 1948, when the couple returned to Eagle Grove where he worked for area farmers until 1952, when they operated their own 200-acre farm for eight years. During this time, Dale and Genevieve raised a family of five. Following their farm life, Dale was employed by Umthun Trucking for 32 years as a long haul driver. He

was the first President of the Umthun Union. Dale retired at age 62, and in 1988 was awarded Iowa’s Driver of the Year accumulating over two million miles of safe driving. Dale and Genevieve were “snow birds” for the next 20 years, camping in Apache Junction, Ariz., where they made many good friends and

Dale Thomason happy memories. Dale was a loving husband for 66 years, and a wonderful father with a special fondness for each of

his 13 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren, who were all unique in his eyes. Dale passed away on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion at the age of 87 years. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Orin; sisters, Phyllis Fyfe and Wilma Goetch; and a son, Loren. Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Genevieve, of Eagle Grove; son, George (Sandra) Thomason of Eagle Grove, Ramona (Mark) Hansen of Goldfield, son, Ralph (Pat) Thomason of Eagle Grove and son, Michel (Candy) Thomason of Goldfield; and a sister, Delores Herman of Waukee. Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 29, at Samuel Lutheran Church in Eagle Grove with Pastor Richard Taylor officiating. Burial will be in Rose Hill Cemetery, Eagle Grove. Memorials may be left to the discretion of the family. Foust Funeral Home of Eagle Grove is in charge of arrangements.

Seven ways to alleviate cabin fever Long winter days can quickly bring on feelings of cabin fever. Although it is not a recognized medical condition, it can compromise well-being. Cabin fever can strike even the most optimistic people. Cabin fever normally affects people during the winter months, when shortened days, longer periods of darkness and cold temperatures force people to remain inside. These factors can lead to depression, boredom, anxiety, and an inability to concentrate. Alleviating symptoms of cabin fever requires making a few changes. 1. Head outside. It may be cold and dreary, but getting outside can be healthy. Take advantage of daylight hours whenever possible. Plan a walk around the neighborhood or spend your lunch hour outdoors soaking up the sun’s rays.

2. Brighten up the indoors. Choose energizing colors like yellow, orange and red to decorate the interior of your home. Invest in lights that offer a greater amount of wattage and brightness. Light-therapy lamps produce bright light that simulates the sun. Sitting in front of one of these lights can alleviate feelings of seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. 3. Plants can help filter out stale, stagnant air in the house and add moisture to the environment. Breathing fresh oxygen from these plants can provide you with energy and help you to feel revitalized. 4. Now could be the time to join the gym or become part of a walking group. According to The Mayo Clinic, exercise can boost mood, reducing immune system chemicals that can worsen symptoms of depression. In addition, exercise

increases body temperature, which may have calming effects, and releases feel-good brain chemicals that may ease depression. 5. The old saying is “misery loves company,” so why not invite friends over and banish cabin fever together? Forcing socialization can brighten not only your own mood but that of others as well. 6. Cabin fever can be temporarily abated by a mini vacation. Head somewhere that is warm and sunny. If you cannot afford a trip to the tropics, a brief jaunt to a spa or relative’s house may banish boredom and get you out of the house. 7. Attempt an activity that marries winter with getting active. Ideal activities include cross-country skiing, ice hockey, skating, or snowshoeing.

— Leading the way to help the blind and hearing impaired —

by Kim demory egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net In 2013, Wright Warrior 4-H members Maggie Wachowiak and Hannah Demory decided to take on a three-year leadership project by raising money to sponsor a Leader Dog. The idea first came to them through Maggie’s mother, Becky, who is a member of the Eagle Grove Lion’s Club. The Lion’s are also big supporters of the Leader Dog Program, and after Becky heard their mission, she told her daughter about it. After learning how inmates at the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility raise puppies to help the seeing and hearing impaired, Maggie knew she wanted to get involved in sponsoring a dog as well. It costs $500 to raise them from puppy to an adult, trained dog with no money being used for training, but rather food, vet bills, medicine, etc. Maggie decided to ask her friend, and fellow Wright Warriors 4-H club member, Hannah Demory, if she would be interested in working on a leadership project with her and raise money to sponsor dogs. Their first year, they focused on raising the money themselves by holding bake sales, selling Avon, and asking for donations from the 4-H Club. They raised more than $700 and were able to attend puppy days at the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility. “We started with just the 4-H Club to raise one dog. This year, we’re trying to raise two dogs,” said Maggie. That is why the two girls took their mission to Robert Blue Middle School Principal Scott Jeske and

asked if they could get the school involved. After listening to their plan of what they would like to do, he thought it was a great idea and invited the girls to give a presentation at the beginning of the second quarter awards assembly held Wednesday, Jan. 22. The students were anxious to listen to what Maggie and Hannah had to say, of course, it didn’t hurt that they had Clover, their puppy in training, and Norm, a dog that was ready to leave Fort Dodge for it’s final training stages, as guests. After a brief explanation of how the Leader Dog program works, the girls announced that they would like to get the school involved in their fundraising efforts by holding a pie throwing fundraiser. Ice cream buckets featuring the pictures of pie-in-the-face volunteers (Mrs. Christopher, Mrs. Johnston, Mrs. Ascherl, Mr. Schild, Mr. Jeske, Mr. McLaughlin, Mr. Groth, Mr. Ettinger, Ms. Weith, and Mr. Morgan) will be available during designated times of the day for kids to throw in their coins or dollar bills to vote who should be the lucky winner of the pie-in-the-face. Smokey Wilburn said he would kick-off the fundraising event with $10 in Mr. Schild’s bucket. That’s a good start, and a great example for the other students/staff to follow. The “winner” will be announced at a later date, so if you are a student at RBMS and have a “favorite” to take a pie-in-theface, be sure and bring your loose change to school and drop it in their bucket. “We can’t do this (Leader Dog) project without all the help and support of the students,” said

ATTENTION ALL EAGLES… What do you choose to believe? Do you believe in yourself? Each day we choose to believe in different things, and each day we choose to act on those things. But regardless of those beliefs, it’s our choosing to believe in those things that makes the difference. Whether we believe and act on negative things, or positive things, is ultimately our choice. What are ten positive things we can choose to believe in this week? — A message from The Nice Guy

Iowa KidsNet to hold information session on foster care and adoption

Hannah. “We thought that having the school help us with the project would not only be fun, but also help them know that change starts with them.” Maggie added that this (getting the school involved) is phase two of their three-year project. Next year, phase-three will be to get the community involved. “It’s good knowing that the trainers (prisoners at the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility) and the hearing/seeing impaired are both being helped through this

program,” Maggie said. After Maggie and Hannah’s presentation to the student body, Jeske added that he always encourages projects that support other worthwhile causes. He continued that if any other students had a community service type project that they would like the school to assist them in, he would be happy to listen to their plan and see if there is a way the school can support their efforts.

Iowa KidsNet, the statewide organization that recruits, trains, licenses, and supports Iowa’s foster and adoptive families, will hold an information session in Webster City on Thursday, Feb. 20, for individuals interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents. Foster care is the temporary placement of children with families outside of their own home due to abuse, neglect or other family crisis situations. The goal is for loving families to provide children with a safe, stable, and nurturing environment. There is no typical foster family—foster families can be single, married, homeowners or renters, and can come from all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. This information session gives attendees a basic overview of the process involved in foster care and adoption and an understanding of the characteristics of children in the child welfare system. There is no obligation to continue in the process by attending. There is a large need for more

families to foster teens, children with special needs or behaviors, and sibling groups. Iowa also has a need for more African American, Latino, and Native American foster and adoptive parents. To inquire online and see future session dates, visit www. iowakidsnet.com. Registrants will receive an information packet to fill out before attending the session. Iowa KidsNet is a statewide collaboration of agencies that utilizes a unique, cohesive approach to provide recruitment, training, licensing, and continued support to individuals who wish to become foster and adoptive parents. Iowa KidsNet is a partnership of Iowa social service agencies, including Four Oaks, Children’s Square USA, Family Resources, LSI, Quakerdale, and affiliate Youth and Shelter Services. For more information, call 1-800-243-0756 or visit www.iowakidsnet.com. Join us on Facebook at www.facebook. com/iowakidsnet or Twitter at @ iowakidsnet.

Fareway teaches ¢entsAble Health to children by Kim demory egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net Did you know that in a baby’s entire skeleton, there is a quarter cup of calcium? In a 10-year-old body, that jumps to 3.5 cups. By 15 years of age, there is seven cups, and by the time you reach adulthood, you can find 11 cups of calcium in your bones? That is, if you’re healthy. As we age, osteoporosis can set in from not having enough calcium intake, which leaves those adults with less than the average 15-year-old - only 6.5 cups. Eagle Grove first, second, and third graders learned all about calcium and enjoyed a visual presentation on the topic from Caitlyn Lines, a registered dietician with Fareway, on Friday, Jan. 17. Lions traveled all the way to Eagle Grove to give the students and their teachers a visual demonstration of just how much calcium is in our bones. One-by-one, she called up volunteers to dump flour into pre-marked Ziplock bags. The flour, since it is white, acted as the calcium. Students were astonished to see it pile up as the bones (Ziplock bags) aged. As she presented the demonstration, Lines explained how calcium doesn’t just make us grow, but it makes our bones strong. Several of the kids were proud to tell their stories of how they drank milk for calcium or how their parents ate a lot of yogurt. Lines used those statements as her lead-in to teaching them what other foods have calcium. Cereal, cheese, ice cream and cottage cheese all have calcium, but did you know that almonds are also a good source of calcium? Other foods that have calcium that you may

not have realized include broccoli, oranges, rhubarb, spinach, and turnips. Some of the adults were even surprised to learn that some yogurts have more calcium than a glass of milk. Since many children are visual learners, Lines did an experiment that showed them how important calcium is to bones and good health. She soaked two hard boiled eggs for several days - one in milk (which acted as the calcium), and one in vinegar (which acted as a sugary food). She then asked Eagle Grove Elementary Principal Mike Kruger to come up and take out each of the eggs and describe to the kids what they were like. He said about the egg that had been soaking in the vinegar, “It feels like the shell has been taken off.” As for the egg soaked in milk, the shell was still hard. In fact, when Lines knocked the shell against the desk, you could hear it crack as if you were peeling a hard boiled egg that had just come out of the refrigerator. Before finishing, Lines had one more treat for everyone. She prepared a fast, healthy, calcium rich snack right in front of them. The kids all loved their delicious snack made of vanilla yogurt, applesauce, cinnamon, and lemon zest. While the kids used a small vanilla wafer to eat the dip, it would also work great with fruit of any kind as well. It was so delicious, that almost every kid was caught liking the inside of the cups. For this and other nutritious and delicious recipes, go to fareway.com and click on recipes.

Eagles defeat Prairie Valley, drop close home game with IFA BY LES HOUSER wrightcosports@gmail.com The Eagle Grove boys varsity basketball team picked up their latest win last Thursday night in Gowrie, utilizing the two-headed scoring machine of Jake Wilde and Zach Ploeger in downing Prairie Valley 74-70. The Warriors jumped out to a 22-10 lead after one quarter, only to see the visitors from the north use the second period to lead 41-38 going into the break. “This was an up and down game,” said head coach Lanny Parrott. “One minute we’re down by 14, then next thing you know we’re leading by three at the half. We got behind in the third, and finally took the lead with about four minutes left in the game. Josh Morris knocked down some big free throws, as well as huge games from Jake and Zach, to help us get our second win of the season.” Wilde ran wild in scoring 32 points, including draining an unbelievable five three-pointers. Ploeger kept pace with his teammate by posting 28 points, and not to be outdone put up three baskets himself from downtown. Following them in the scoring column were Jordan Wieth and the aforementioned Morris with four points each, along with Graeham Schope, Dylan Thielan and Brian Yackle who all chipped in a basket apiece. Ploeger enjoyed a doubledouble in yanking down 12 boards, 10 of them defensively. Wilde and Yackle each recovered five caroms, with Schope hauling in two. Wieth and Morris each had one rebound. Wieth unselfishly dished up seven assists, with Wilde making three and both Thielan and Ploeger two each. Morris and Schope both finished with one assist. Wilde picked off six steals, with Wieth making two and Schope, Thielan and Yackle all one each. Schope added three blocked shots to his final line, with Ploeger snaring one. “Jake had his best game of the season,” said Parrott. “That’s something that I have been waiting for from him all season. Zach also came up big for us. It was also a team effort out of everybody, as Graeham took two big charge calls for us and both Jordan and Josh did a great job

putting pressure on their guards. It was just an all around team effort from everyone that played.” Prior to that game, the purple and gold hung tough with Iowa Falls-Alden for the first half before dropping a 72-65 home contest to the Cadets. The score was 16-12 Cadets after a quarter, then 39-34 Eagles after they played a great second quarter. The Cadets outscored the home team 21-points to eight in the third, and the Eagles could never quite recover after that. Three players reached double digits, with Ploeger plowing in 20 points including three buckets from downtown. Wilde netted 18 points, with three treys as well, and went 3 of 4 from the line. Maxx Asche finished with 10 points, including two baskets from beyond the arc. Yackle added seven points, three of those on one long-range shot, while Wieth and Thielan each scored five points which included a trey for each. Yackle led the board work with 11 rebounds. Wilde finished with seven, Wieth five and both Thielan and Ploeger four each. Asche contributed two caroms. Wieth dished for six big assists, with Morris and Ploeger each helping with three. Thielan and Yackle both had two assists apiece. Wilde and Ploeger each picked off a steal, while Yackle went up for a blocked shot. “I thought the kids really played hard last Tuesday, but we just came up a little short,” said Parrott. “I really liked the way Brian battled on the boards, and the way Jordan and Maxx came off the bench and gave us some good minutes. Zach played the state’s leading scorer ( Casey Schlatter) as best he could, but he just made some tough shots when they needed them.” On Friday, the team traveled to Humboldt and came home with an 82-36 loss to the Wildcats. The Wildcats tried to put the game away by the half, taking a 20-4 firstquarter advantage and turning it into a 49-19 bulge at the break. “Going into this game, I was really worried how much energy we would have after playing just the night before,” said Parrott. “It showed that there wasn’t much gas left in our tanks. We just got

Zach Ploeger Zach Ploeger scored 20 points last Tuesday in the loss to Eagle Grove, but came right back with a huge effort on Thursday for a 74-70 win over Prairie Valley. The senior finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds in that game. He led the team with 12 points versus Humboldt on Friday.

Colton Pickering knocked down six points on two buckets from beyond the arc, while Wilde scored five including a trey. Wieth scored a trey and a free throw for four, Thielan and Asche three points each, Yackle two points and Morris one point. Schope led the team on the boards with four, followed by Wilde and Yackle with three rebounds each.

Thielan and Ploeger both recovered two caroms each, with Wieth and Tyler Vorrie getting one each. Wieth dished up five assists, with Thielan and Ploeger getting one apiece. Wieth and Ploeger grabbed two steals each, Wilde, Schope and Asche all making one apice. Wilde and Vorrie both added a blocked shot to their final line. The team is currently 2-13 overall, and plays at Webster City this Friday before going to HamptonDumont next Tuesday.

Lady Eagles break through Continued from Page 1 We executed what we needed to, and hit our free throws to get the job done.” Crail’s season-high 19-point effort was followed by Leslie Cooper with seven points, including a trey, and both Desira Shivers and Sam Helmke with five points each (with each including a three-pointer). Allison Purcell, Kylee Almond and Katie Blasi all chipped in four points apiece. Crail also hit a double-double, grabbing 14 boards including 11 on the defensive side. Purcell and Shivers both managed four rebounds each, with Almond, Cooper and Helmke all getting three apiece. Stephanie Martin and Blasi each grabbed two caroms. Cooper dished up two assists, with Crail and Martin each providing one. Almond and Helmke picked off two steals apiece, with Cooper, Crail and Martin all swiping one each. The team went into Warrior gym on Thursday and defeated Prairie Valley. The Lady Eagles were up 11-4 after a quarter and 31-12 by the break. After giving the Warriors a five-point edge throughout the third, the Eagles outscored the home team by ten in the final period for the victory. Three players reached double figures, with Almond netting 13 points including three buckets from long range. Both Crail and Cooper poured in 12 points each, while Helmke scored six points which included 4 of 6 at the line. Shivers scored on a trey plus free throw for four points, Martin a basket and throw for three and both Blasi and Purcell a basket each for two. Crail managed another double-double by raking in 11 rebounds. Helmke and Blasi were both busy on the boards as well, with each getting eight balls for the night. Purcell recovered five rebounds, Almond, Cooper and Shivers all four each and Martin two. Helmke dished the ball for six assists. Cooper had four, with Almond, Crail and Martin all managing two each. Almond swiped four steals, with Crail making three and Shivers, Helmke and Blasi all

three each. Martin and Blasi both had a blocked shot to add to their final lines. “This was a great win for the girls, and exactly what they needed to help get them through a three-game week,” said Dahlhauser. “We had some steals and hit some key shots early, which gave us great momentum for the rest of the game. The girls ran the floor very well, and had great ball movement against the zone.” The Lady Eagles lost to Humboldt last Friday night 79-36 in a home contest. Complete stats for that game were not available at press time, so watch next week’s Eagle for those numbers. The team is currently 2-14 and travels to Webster City this Friday, then plays at Hampton-Dumont the following Tuesday.

BY KIM DEMORY egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net A child’s birthday is one of their most anticipated days of the years. Now imagine if when their big day came, there was no cake, no decorations, and perhaps worst of all, no present. Wright County Upper Des Moines Opportunity is doing something to make sure this doesn’t happen in our area. Families who have found themselves on hard times are eligible for the UDMO Birthday Bag Program. Parents of children eighty years old and younger who meet income eligibility requirements are invited to stop by the office located at 221 W. Broadway in Eagle Grove and pick up a birthday bag before their child’s birthday. Bags have been assembled in advance and are designated for a boy or a girl. Inside the bag is a cake mix, frosting, candles, and other items to make their birthday memorable. Families are also allowed to select one special gift from a variety of toys that can be given to the birthday boy or girl - and it’s all free of charge. “We’ve already given out three birthday bags in January,” Vicky Bell, Wright County outreach specialist said. She added that she expects that number to grow even more in February as she knows there are several people already using the services of UDMO who have children with birthdays next month. If you’re wondering where the funding comes from for this program, it is all donation based. Mary Ohrtman, outreach director,

Lori Fouarge (left) and Vicky Bell (right), both outreach specialists at Upper Des Moines Opportunity, are excited to show off their new display of birthday bags. Read on to find out who is eligible and how the program runs. Photo by Kim Demory is hoping you will help make the program a continued success. “We need donations. We want to continue this and we can not do it without outside help and community support,” she said. Ohrtman said she is proud to say that even her husband has joined in supporting this worthwhile program. She had a birthday recently and her husband planned a surprise party for her, but instead of bringing gifts for her, he

asked the guests to bring birthday gifts and supplies that could be used for the UDMO Birthday Bags Program. Ohrtman said there is another young gal in the area whose family throws her a big birthday party every year. Any cash she receives, she donates back to UDMO to buy presents for kids in need. “There are so many creative ideas on how you can give,” said Ohrtman. “Please help this project

grow.” If you would like to make a contribution, or if you need to request a birthday bag, there is no appointment necessary. You are invited to just stop in during office hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Please note the office is closed from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. They are closed Wednesdays.
