By Rebecca Peter Shaun and Jenny Wumkes came home last week. The dedication and open house of the first Habitat for Humanity home in Hancock County was held Thursday, Jan. 23. The couple started moving into their new home at 1140 Grove, Garner, on Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t express how much we want to thank everybody who helped from start to finish,â&#x20AC;? Shaun Wumkes said as the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young sons, Von and Deven, excitedly scampered about the floor. Construction of the three-bedroom, 26 x 46 house began in July. The home has a bathroom and an â&#x20AC;&#x153;open conceptâ&#x20AC;? kitchen/living room area. Shaun recalled when he and Jenny first heard that applications for Habitat for Humanity program were being taken, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought, why not us?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was my way of getting my family back home,â&#x20AC;? said Wumkes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love this town and community. I grew up here and I plan staying here the rest of my life and watching my boys go to school here.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the volunteer labor and donation of building materials, the Wumkes were required to contribute 250 hours of â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweat equityâ&#x20AC;? to build the house and assist with other projects. They will be making monthly payments on the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did everything the guys did,â&#x20AC;? Jenny Wumkes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day

West Hancock initiates mentoring program By Rebecca Peter BRITT - The West Hancock School will initiate a program where high school students have the opportunity to mentor elementary students in preschool through 4th grade. Derek Cornett, K-12 school counselor, discussed the new program with the board of education, Jan. 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the mentoring program is to provide high school students an opportunity to work with elementary students and vice versa,â&#x20AC;? according to Cornett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program will be focused more on behavioral and social goals and can lead to academic goals in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To go along with these behavioral and social goals, the students will

work on developing relationships with one another and bridging the elementary and high school.â&#x20AC;? Currently 22 high school students are signed up as mentors with three others on a waiting list. Cornett said the elementary students to be mentored were identified by the teachers as ones who would benefit from this kind of a program. The high school student mentors have an opportunity once a cycle (every six days) to work with 2-3 elementary students on playing games, reading books, and even eating lunch with one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mentors will be positive role models for the elementary students,â&#x20AC;? Cornett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will look for vari-

ous activities throughout the semester to do big group activities with mentors and mentees.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one way to give our students a chance to build relationships that can lead to more positive behaviors inside and outside of the school,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With those individuals who have volunteered, they will be the ones that the elementary students look up to and want to be like as they grow up in our school district.â&#x20AC;? The mentoring program will get started the first week in February.

Schoneberg said Habitat for Humanity is starting a homeowner repair program in 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to help existing home owners as well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have families who have lived in their homes for many years and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the repairs. Elderly, disabled people, veterans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all kinds of people who have low incomes and need some help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do is help with energy efficiency, safety, and neighborhood beautification.â&#x20AC;? Schonberg said $12,500 from the City of Garner will be allocated for the Habitat for Humanity home repair program. The funding was originally intended for construction of the Wumkes home, but was not used thanks to a grant from Thrivent Financial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to do another Habitat house,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Lansing, Garner city administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely beneficial to our community. Here was a vacant lot. Now we have a new house on it. This is all new tax base.â&#x20AC;?

By Rebecca Peter Hancock County Republicans and Democrats selected delegates for upcoming county conventions and worked on party platforms during their respective party caucuses. Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s precinct caucuses were held Tuesday, Jan. 21 Attendance for off-presidential election year caucuses is typically light compared to presidential election years. Republican Party chairman Marv Johnson, Kanawha, however, was pleased with the turnout for the GOP caucus. Johnson estimated about 80 persons attended the Republican caucus. All precincts met at the Britt Municipal Building. Three candidates for county office were introduced: Supervisor Sis Greiman, Auditor Michelle Eisenman and Deputy County Recorder Tracy Marshall. June Brady, current County Recorder, has decided not to run for reelection. State Senator Dennis Guth highlighted the legislative activities of the Iowa Senate, to date. He said the Senate Republican agenda includes a rule change that would require every bill up for debate to give a reference to that part in the Iowa Constitution that gives the authority to legislate that particular area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Next would be eliminating sales tax on consumables,â&#x20AC;? he continued.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in manufacturing, you have to pay sales tax on the steel, rubberâ&#x20AC;Śwhat ever it is youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying to put in your product. Then we turn around and charge sales tax on that again. We feel that is double taxation.â&#x20AC;? A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Religious Liberty Act is being forwarded in the House of Representatives. Guth will sponsor the bill in the Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will give some protection for people or organizationsâ&#x20AC;Śan exemption for firmly held religious beliefs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The election this November has great potential to put Republican in control of the Iowa Senate,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have districts to the east and to the southwest of us where the Democratic senator is fairly vulnerable.â&#x20AC;? The work on GOP Party platform will continue at the Republican County convention, Saturday, March 8 at the USDA building in Garner. Democratic Caucus A small but hearty group of Hancock County Democrats met at Matâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place in Garner for precinct caucus. Turnout was â&#x20AC;&#x153;about what we expected - the weather being what it was,â&#x20AC;? said Gary Gelner, Hancock County Democratic Party chairman. Gelner said caucus participants reviewed the slate of Democratic candidates for local, state and national CAUCUS to page 2

John K. & Luise V. Hanson Foundation Partner with HCHS Nerve Conduction Velocity machine tests for carpal tunnel syndrome BRITT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hancock County Health System (HCHS) has partnered with the John K. and Luise V. Hanson Foundation to purchase a Nerve Conduction Velocity machine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) testing measures how quickly electrical impulses move along a nerve,â&#x20AC;? said Monica Christensen, RRT, RCP, RPFT, BS, with Hancock County Health System. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A healthy nerve conducts signals with greater speed and strength than a damaged nerve, and the NCV test is a great diagnostic tool to detect nerve disorders or injury.â&#x20AC;? The NCV machine will allow HCHS the opportunity to meet a growing de-

mand and enhance its scope of practice by offering patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as ulnar entrapment, on-site testing. Patients suffering from arm and hand tingling, pain and numbness can now receive testing through a device that detects changes in nerve transmission close to home at Hancock County Memorial Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wellness Center.

The View from Here by Dennis Guth

Iowa State Senator District 4 dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov â&#x20AC;˘ 641-430-0424

Work begins in the Iowa Senate State budget work began Wednesday in the Iowa Senate. I am Ranking Member for the Senate on the Administration and Regulation subcommittee, which approves the budget for 16 agencies from State Auditor to the Department of Revenue. We have heard the budget request from half of them already. I stand with all Senate Republicans in an effort to protect Iowa taxpayers from excessive taxation and the expansion of government. Last year, we all voted against every budget proposal offered by our counterparts in the Senate majority. Why? We cannot support reckless and often unconstitutional spending. One of my favorite issues this session is a bill which exempts military retirement pay from state income tax. Over half of the states, including all neighboring states, have a similar law in place. Along with the tax exemption, the Home Base Iowa Act will enable all veterans to qualify for in-state tuition at

our state universities and provide college credit for technical skills acquired in the military. We want to honor our veterans who proudly served our great nation and provide a welcoming environment for them in Iowa. Last Tuesday, I attended my county caucus. I have been a part of this for well over 20 years. I am always impressed any Iowa citizen has the opportunity to express his or her views on the issues important to them. How many countries do you know encourage this type of participation? It does make a difference if we all stay engaged, and hold our elected officials accountable. On that note, I remind you I appreciate your input. Please contact me via email dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov or by phone at (641) 430-0424. I frequently remind myself not to lean on my own understanding, but to seek the guidance of the One who created all things. Thanks for the opportunity to represent you in the Iowa Senate.

Budgets, Education, and Bi-Partisan Politics We are finishing our second week of the session. Like other government agencies, the legislature was off on Monday, Martin Luther King Day. Tuesday was caucus day. When we got back to work yesterday, it was to committee meetings, plenty of mail, and meetings with constituents who were here at the Capitol. Last week Governor Branstad outlined his budget proposal for the FY2015. The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal is a good first step in the appropriations process. First, by allowing both the House and the Senate to begin our part in the budget negotiations earlier in the session. He also outlined a budget that will continue to maintain a healthy reflection of state revenue. Each of the past three years, the final budget passed by the Legislature spent less than what the Governor proposed. I believe the final FY2015 will also continue this trend. If we continue to adhere to the common sense budgeting principles of not spending more money than the state takes in, not using one-time money to pay for on-going expenses, not intentionally underfunding entitlement programs to balance the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, and returning unused tax dollars to Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayers, our state will continue to be prepared for whatever lays ahead. One of Governor Branstadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key points in his proposed budget for FY2015 is continued education reform and much of the new spending proposal comes as a result of legislation passed during the 2013 session. The single largest increase is for the $245 per student increase in state supplemental aid for schools. With the current enrollment projections for the 2014-2015 school year, the commitment to provide a four percent increase will result in $155.4 million of new financial support to Iowa schools. In addition to that, schools will also be receiving an additional $50.3 million to fund the various efforts included in the Education Reform package for this year. These two funding sources will raise the per pupil

State Representative Henry Rayhons House District 8 henry.rayhons@legis.state.ia.us / (641)430-2863 spending in FY 2015 to approximately $10,000 per student. Fiscal Year 2015 will also be the first year that the landmark Commercial Property Tax Reform legislation will be in effect. Commercial property tax credits and replacement of commercial property tax revenue for local governments will be funded this year. The Governor has proposed $50 million for the credits and $70 million for the replacement of lost property tax revenue to cities and counties. This is an important step in continuing to make our state more business and industry friendly without undercutting the cities that previously benefitted from the taxes paid by those entities.

If what I have seen these first two weeks is any indication, I believe that, in spite of what might be a shortened session, the House and the Senate will successfully work together toward a budget void of partisan politics.

One tool that is very useful in identifying potential health risks is a diagnostic screening. For instance, if a woman gets a yearly mammogram and clinical breast exam a precancerous lesion can be found as small as the size of a pinhead, instead of waiting until it is a lump large enough to feel. The care and treatment can be dramatically different based on when a lump is found. Preventive care can reduce your risk for all major chronic diseases; reduce interruptions to your personal life; and reduce the amount of money you spend on healthcare since most screens are either covered by your health insurance or offered to you at low or no cost. If you would like to submit a healthcare question, visit www.trustHCHS. com and select Contact Us at the bottom of the home page or call 641-8435150.

QUESTION: Why is preventative medicine important to me? ANSWER by: Becky Finch, RN, providing treatment and care through the Business Health Department at Hancock County Memorial Hospital. With all the healthcare changes, preventative medicine has become more of a buzzword lately but I am sure many people are wondering what does it really mean. In the past, healthcare has focused on the care and treatment of those who are sick but that focus is changing to recognize the importance of keeping people well so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become sick. If we help a patient stay healthy we may be able to increase their quality of life and the time they spend on doing things they enjoy as well as reduce the amount of money spent on medical bills. It is far less expensive to treat a condition before it becomes a chronic disease.

PEOPLE & EVENTS

Garner Rotary welcomes new members

Garner NON-FICTION (Continued from last week) Kimmel, Dr. Tim ; Grace Based Parenting - Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to but anxious about their child-rearing responsibilities. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried the countless parenting books on the market, but many of these are strident, fear-based books that loving parents instinctively reject, while still searching for direction. Now Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries, offers a refreshing new look at parenting. Rejecting rigid rules and checklists that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, Dr. Kimmel recommends a parenting style that mirrors Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it-creating a solid foundation for growing morally strong and spiritually motivated children. Northup, Solomon; Twelve Years a Slave - Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup is a memoir of a black man who was born free in New York state but kidnapped, sold into slavery and kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana before the American Civil War. He provided details of slave markets in Washington, DC, as well as describing at length cotton cultivation on major plantations in Louisiana. Salatin, Joel ; Salad Bar Beef - In a day when beef is assailed by many environmental organizations and lauded by fast-food chains, a new paradigm to bring reason to this confusion is in order. With farmers leaving the land in droves and plows poised to â&#x20AC;&#x153;reclaimâ&#x20AC;? set-aside acres, it is time to offer an alternative that is both land and farmer friendly. Beyond that, the salad bar beef production model offers hope to rural communities, to struggling row-crop farmers, and to frustrated beef eaters who do not want to encourage desertification, air and water pollution, environmental degradation and inhumane animal treatment. Because this is a program weighted toward creativity, management, entrepreneurism and observation, it breathes fresh air into farm economics. Taste of Home; 2014 Annual Recipes Thomas, Gary; Sacred Parenting, how raising children shapes our souls - Parenting is a school for spiritual formation---and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children will profoundly alter us forever. Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book you have ever read. This is not a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;how-toâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book that teaches you ways to discipline your kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read all the method books. Now take a step back and receive some much-needed inspiration. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent---and how their children transformed their relationship with God. Sacred Parenting affirms the spiritual value of being a parent, showing you the holy potential of the parent-child relationship.

NEW MATERIALS - Fiction Bowen, Rhys; In A Gilded Cage Irish immigrant Molly Murphy and her New York City P.I. business are in the midst of a sweeping influenza epidemic and a fight for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffrage that lands her in jail. Her betrothed, Police Captain Daniel Sullivan, finds her, but he hardly has time to bail her out, what with Chinese gangs battling for control of a thriving opium trade. The only consolation Molly can take from her vexing afternoon in the clink is that it made her some new friends among the Vassar suffragists---and brought her a pair of new cases. For the first, Emily Boswell is convinced her miserly uncle stole her inheritance and wants Molly to uncover the truth behind her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives and deaths. Second, Emilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college roommate Fanny Poindexter wants Molly to find proof of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philandering so that she can leave him without one red cent. But when Fanny dies and her husband claims sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a victim of the epidemic, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conscience can take. Higgins, Jack; The Death Trade An eminent Iranian scientist has made a startling breakthrough in nuclear weapons research, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand the thought of his regime owning the bomb. He would run if he could, but if he does, his family dies. He is desperate; he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do. It is up to Sean Dillon and the rest of the small band known as the Prime Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private army to think of a plan. Most particularly, it is up to their newest member, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon, who thinks there just might be a way to pull it off. Klassen, Julie; The Silent Governess - Believing herself guilty of a crime, Olivia Keene flees her home, eventually stumbling upon a grand estate where an elaborate celebration is in progress. But all is not as joyous as it seems. Lord Bradley has just learned a terrible secret, which, if exposed, will change his life forever. When he glimpses a figure on the grounds, he fears a spy or thief has overheard his devastating news. He is stunned to discover the intruder is a scrap of a woman with her throat badly injured. Fearing she will spread his secret, he gives the girl a post and confines her to his estate. As Olivia and Lord Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secrets catch up with them, will their hidden pasts ruin their hope of finding love? More next week!

Hancock County Fair 2014 slated for July 22-27

This summer from July 22 - 27, the southeast corner of Britt will be the entertainment focal point for North Iowa. The increasingly popular Hancock County District Fair will bring young and old to one spot to enjoy some of the best entertainment of the year. Concert, races, livestock shows, carnivals, and of course food, are some of the events scheduled for the week. Long before the 2103 fair ended on this past July, the planning for the 2014 fair was well under way. Hours and hours of work are done to make sure each fair is a success. The Hancock County Fair Board works hard to make sure the event is successful. One of the ways they accomplish this is by partici-

pating at the Iowa Fair Association Annual Convention on Dec. 12-14 in Des Moines. At the convention, board members are exposed to hundreds of different vendors that would like the opportunity to be booked. The vendors have displays setup throughout the Convention Center. At these displays, board members are able to discuss their needs and check on availability of the vendors. During the convention the Hancock County Fair Board was able to book their needs for the 2014 fair. Including a carnival, two musical groups, free stage entertainers, a chainsaw artist, and more. To evaluate which entertainment acts

to book for the fair, the board attended a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showcaseâ&#x20AC;? of musical acts on Friday afternoon. This Showcase involves entertainers performing 20-minute performances on two side-by-side stages. While one stage has a live performance on it, the other stage is being tore down and setup for the next act. Then the focus switches to the other stage and the teardown and setup process starts on the previous stage. This continues for four hours. Over those four hours, attendees are able to see 24 different acts. The Hancock County Fair Board was able to book one of the top performers during the showcase. More information on this will come in future articles. During the convention the Hancock

County Fair Board was able to talk with fair board members from other parts of the state. During these discussions, the topic of what has been successful and what has not, usually comes up. The Hancock County Fair has an excellent reputation for its excellent entertainment, large livestock shows, and overall experience. While many county fairs struggle with declining attendance and participation, the Hancock County Fair repeatedly breaks records for gate admission to events and livestock entries. So, mark your calendar for July 22 thru July 27, and plan to attend the 2014 Hancock County Fair.

Garner-Hayfield/Ventura Girls Lead NIC Entering the week in a tie for the top spot in the North Iowa Conference basketball standings, the GHV girls wanted to make a statement in their three league games this week. That mission was accomplished as the Cardinals added three more wins to their conference record to move ahead of Forest City and Osage. Going into Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rescheduled game with Forest City, the Indians appeared to be one of the teams to beat in the NIC. Most spectators were expecting a close game between the two rivals and action through the first quarter lived up to those expectations. The Indians led 12 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11 after the first period, but some strong defensive play by the Cards in the second quarter resulted in GHV enjoying a 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 15 halftime advantage. The Cardinals then put the game away in the opening minutes of the second half, outscoring Forest City 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7 in the third quarter. The Cards cruised through the final period on the way to a 64 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 34 victory. Shelby Rayhons carried the offensive load for GHV, connecting on seven of eight shots on the way to 15 points. Bri Bier followed with nine points and three assists followed by Hannah Lau with eight points and four rebounds. Maddie Tusha finished the night with eight points and five assists while Emily Spilman scored seven points. Grace Tusha and Mackenzie Haag added five and four points respectively and Mackenzie Van Gerpen chipped in four points with five rebounds. Courtney Younge returned to the floor after a long injury layoff to score four points. Cardinal coach Matt Erpelding commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first quarter was a back and forth affair as both teams were feeling each other out on both ends of the floor. We made some defensive adjustments at the end of the quarter that allowed us to hold them to three points in the second quarter. We had some difficulty finding an offense we were comfortable with in the first half. We made a few more minor defensive adjustments at half that led to another very strong second half defensive performance from my girls. We were also able to find an offense that was clicking in the second half and we executed it tremendously as reflected by our 68% shooting in the second half. We also limited our turnovers to a season low 13 and also continued to show improvement in our free throw shooting. The only area of our game that I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy with was our rebounding effort. Even though we outrebounded them we need to do a much better job of finding bodies and securing the ball. I was extremely pleased with our interior passing in this game as we made a lot of passes in traffic that led to some high percentage shots. We got outstanding minutes from everyone that stepped on the floor and with as many girls that we play that makes us very difficult to contend with especially when we play at the level we did in this game.â&#x20AC;? Playing on consecutive nights is always difficult but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually even tougher after a big win. Add the fact that the game is on the road in a small gym and there are a lot of factors working against you. That appeared to be the case in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to West Hancock. With only two conference wins so far, the Eagles should have been an easy win for GHV, but

West Hancock caught the Cardinals off guard to lead 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 6 after the first quarter of play. The Cards adjusted in the second quarter to gain control and go ahead 25 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 17 at halftime. West Hancock used their small floor to full advantage and stay close through the third quarter as GHVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead was only 39 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 28 heading into the final period. The Cardinals held on through the fourth quarter for a 51 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 37 win. Sydney Younge scored nine points to lead GHV in the scorebook and teammate Hannah Lau added eight points and 14 rebounds. Bri Bier chipped in seven points with seven boards while Shelby Rayhons and Emily Spilman also scored seven. Kim Dornbier and Mackenzie Haag finished with four points apiece followed by Maddie Tusha with three points, nine rebounds and four assists. Grace Tusha completed the scoring total with two points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This game was a struggle for us from the opening tip,â&#x20AC;?noted Erpelding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We let West Hancock dictate what we did on the offensive end for most of the night. In the first meeting we controlled the game on both ends and were very efficient. This time we lacked patience in our offense and made several poor decisions in our shot selection. Our body and ball movement was nowhere close to where it needed to be. As a result their defense made it very difficult for us to score. Our defense was not quite as solid as it usually is either but we were able to pull it together and get out of there with a victory. I am hoping the reason for our struggles was due to playing back-to-back nights against two rivals which leads to tired legs and mental fatigue.â&#x20AC;? Erpelding hinted that the game was not near as close as the final score indicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Statistically we dominated the boards led by Hannahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14 and once again shot free throws above 60% which is improvement for us. Our extremely balanced scoring continues to be a huge plus for us. It is very difficult to prep for an opponent when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where the scoring is going to come from. As long as we can bounce back with a better effort in terms of offensive execution and defensive intensity we will be fine.â&#x20AC;? Belmond has not been very successful in North Iowa Conference play recently and this year appears to be more of the same. The Broncos entered Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game with only one league win so the Cardinals were realistically expecting an easy outing. Belmond played strong through the first quarter and the Cards were only able to inch ahead 14 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 13, but the second quarter removed all doubt as GHV stretched their lead to 41 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 21. The Cardinals continued to dominate during the second half and when the final horn sounded GHV posted a 71 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 42 win. Maddie Tusha scored 16 points and dished out four assists to lead GHV in the game. Shelby Rayhons added eight points and five rebounds while Hannah Lau also scored eight. Emily Spilman grabbed five rebounds to go with seven points followed by Courtney Young with six rebounds and six points. Grace Tusha and Tiara Van Gerpen each added six points to the tally with Bri Bier and Mackenzie Van Gerpen grabbing five points and scoring five points apiece. Kim Dornbier and Mackenzie Haag completed

GHVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bri Bier scores for the Cards during their 71-42 win over Belmond Klemme. (Photo by Rick Ermer) the scoring total with two points each. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a close first quarter we exploded for 27 points in the second quarter to take control of the game,â&#x20AC;?stated Erpelding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to do a great job of getting high percentage shots from our offense and when we convert a high percentage of them good things are going to happen. We shot 48% from the floor and tallied 54 points in the paint. We were able to convert their turnovers into 25 points. We had a dominating performance on the boards out rebounding them by 20 and pulling down 19 offensive boards.â&#x20AC;? Erpeldingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad has been balanced offensively through the last several games and he was pleased to see that trend continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maddie

led us in scoring as she did a good job attacking the basket. Once again we had quality, balanced production from virtually everyone who stepped on the floor. I was not happy with our defensive performance in this game, as we were a little flat-footed and slow to close out on shooters. I thought we could have done a lot better job rebounding as well as we did a poor job finding bodies and rebounding fundamentally. We need to start the game with better defense as we have been allowing the opponent too many first quarter points in the last several games. In this game our third quarter defense wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t where it needs to be as we failed some assignments early in the quarter that allowed them some easy baskets. All

in all we played well but we need to clean up the above-mentioned areas as we move into a very critical stretch in our schedule with some very challenging games.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals have not fared very well against non-conference opponents this season. Two of their three losses to date were at the hands of Corn Bowl teams, making Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Rockford an important test for the now-healthy Cards. The Warriors scored the first four points of the game and the two teams battled to a 12 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12 tie heading into the second quarter. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when GHV assumed control of the game, outscoring Rockford 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 9 for a 30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 21 advantage by halftime. The Cards continued to play a strong defensive game, holding the Warriors to single digits in the third and fourth quarters on the way to a 53 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 35 win. Bri Bier scored eight points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead GHV to the win. Mackenzie Haag and Shelby Rayhons also scored eight points followed by Maddie Tusha with seven points, six assists and five boards. Hannah Lau grabbed eight rebounds to go with six points followed by Emily Spilman with six points and Mackenzie Van Gerpen with five. Payton Bamrick and Grace Tusha added two points each to the total and Tiara Van Gerpen scored a free throw. Coach Erpelding would have liked to see the Cards get off to a better start in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once again we played even with the opponent in the first quarter but were able to pull away a bit in the second quarter. We built a little momentum heading into halftime and we came out of the locker room and maintained that momentum thanks to back-to-back three-pointers by Bri. That was the difference in the game as we stretched the lead to 15 and played very well on both ends of the floor in the second half. We held them to 20% field goal shooting and did a good job taking away their three leading scorers and making the rest of their team beat us. Once again our offense resulted in a high shooting performance (47%) and a dominating game in the paint (38 points). If we can continue to improve our perimeter shooting we are going to become very difficult to guard. Our balance continues to impress as we had seven girls score between five and eight points.â&#x20AC;? Overall, Erpelding was pleased with the effort against the Warriors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We beat a pretty darn good Rockford team and considering the circumstances we were in at game time I was extremely proud of my girls to pull together and perform the way they did. Now we head into a very important week with Osage

GHV Boys Sink in NIC Standings What a difference one week can make. With three conference games on the schedule, the GHV Cardinals were hoping for a sweep in hopes in keeping their NIC title hopes alive. Unfortunately the week got off to a bad start and then proceeded to get worse. GHV was looking to upset league-leading Forest City on Monday but the Indians maintained their spot with a convincing win over the Cardinals. On the following night the weary Cardinals then traveled to Britt where West Hancock took advantage of GHVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tired legs to pull off a rare upset over the Cards. The Cardinals had a chance to bounce back on Friday but Belmond used a last second shot to hand GHV their third consecutive loss. Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game with Forest City had been rescheduled from the previous week due to bad weather. Ironically the road conditions were considerably worse on Monday compared to the week before but the Indians elected to make the trip anyway. GHV held their own in the first quarter as Forest City sneaked ahead 15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11 after eight minutes of play. The second period proved to be the difference in the game as the Indians used their perimeter game and strong defense to build their lead to 36 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 18 by halftime. The Cardinals chipped away at the lead in the third quarter and closed the gap a little more in the fourth, but it was too little, too late as Forest City posted a 69 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 57 win. Braden Meints led GHV with 19 points, eight rebounds and three steals followed by Joel Toppin with 16 points and four rebounds. Spencer Shaw scored six points while Holden Hutcheson and Jake Wolf added five points apiece. Harley Forry chipped four points for the Cards and Logan Ryerson added a field goal. Cardinal coach Joe Albertson commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forest City got off to a great start, and we were playing in a panic to catch up. They did a nice job executing on offense and we gave them too much room to operate. I was happy to see our intensity pick up in the second half with great play from Harley Forry and Logan Ryerson. Braden Meints shot well and helped us close the distance but we just dug ourselves too big of hole in the first half to turn the game around.â&#x20AC;? After recording a 30-point blowout over West Hancock in December, GHV was probably expecting an easy game with the Eagles on Tuesday. The effects of Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game were evident from the beginning as West Hancock took advantage of their fatigued opponent to build a 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 8 lead after one quarter of play. GHV was able to recover some in the second quarter to close the gap to 38 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 32 by halftime, but frequent whistles in the second half gave the Eagles too many trips to the free throw line. The Cardinals were not able chip away at the lead through the second half and West Hancock finished with a 69 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 60 win. Statistically, the Cardinals should have prevailed in the game as GHV out-rebounded West Hancock 45 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 28. The Cards also outscored their hosts from the field, but the Eagles benefitted from a huge advantage in free throws to maintain their lead. Braden Meints scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds to pace GHV in the game. Joel Toppin also finished with five rebounds while scoring 14 points and Holden Hutcheson added a dozen points with seven boards. Spencer Shaw also reached double figures in the book as he scored 10 points with five assists. Jake Wolf grabbed nine rebounds to go with two points, followed by Logan Ryerson with two points and four assists and Harley Forry with two points. Sam Cataldoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free throw completed the scoring total for GHV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not get off to a good start,

Cardinals Wrestle at Riceville Ask any wrestling coach and they will all agree that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s virtually impossible to keep the kids competitive without regular practice. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spell of wintry weather cost the Cardinal wrestlers a quadrangular meet as well as practice time, but GHV was finally able to return to the mat over the weekend. The Cards traveled to Riceville on Saturday to compete in an eight-team tournament that featured a number of strong wrestling programs. Crestwood of Cresco outclassed the rest of the field on the way to a tournament title, finishing the day with 171 points. Forest City was a distant second with 117 points followed by St. Ansgar, GMLOK and Waukon. The Cards ended the day in sixth place overall with 69 points. Cade Baker was the highest individual finisher of the day for GHV as the sophomore 160-pounder finished second overall. Connor Smith, Connor Shaw and Nic Tusha also had good days on the mat as they finished in third place. Tusha added two pins to his individual record at 220 pounds while Smith and Shaw picked up falls at 182 and 152 pounds respectively. The Cardinals also scored pin points on the day from Austin Case at 106 pounds and Derek Brown at 132 pounds. Cardinal coach Steve Smith commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today we saw some really good competition up at Riceville. We

wrestled well at times and not so well at others. We really need to step it up this next week heading into the conference tournament and then sectionals. We just need to get busy this week and fix the small mistakes that we are making.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals are hoping to get one more quadrangular in before this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NIC tournament at Lake Mills. Weather permitting the Cards will compete at Belmond on Tuesday against the Broncos, West Fork and Northwood-Kensett.

VGH Girls Begin Basketball Season

After a weather-shortened preseason, the Ventura/Garner-Hayfield middle school girls opened their 2014 basketball season last week. The Lady Vikes have missed practices due to school being cancelled, but the girls took the floor as scheduled in spite of not being quite ready. The season opened at Ventura on Tuesday with seventh and eighth grade games against West Fork. In the seventh grade game, West Fork edged VGH 16 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 14 while the Warhawks prevailed in the eighth grade game 38 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 25. Maddie Williams scored five points to lead the VGH seventh grade in that game. Mara Anderson added four

Braden Meints scores for the Cardinals during their 54-53 loss to Belmond Klemme. Meints finished the night for the Cardinals with 10 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. (Photo by Rick Ermer) and it seemed to put us in a panic,â&#x20AC;? remarked Albertson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early foul trouble changed what we wanted to do offensively and defensively. Holden Hutcheson was one of the few bright spots in the game. I was expecting us to play with better energy and more poise, but we were just not ready to win.â&#x20AC;? GHV was hoping to avenge an earlier loss to Belmond on Friday but since the Broncos are still in the hunt for the league title they would no doubt present a strong challenge. GHV got off to another slow start and the Broncos took advantage as they led 16 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 10 after the first quarter. The margin didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change in the second period and Belmond was still in command with a 27 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 21 halftime lead. The Broncos added to their lead in the third quarter but saw their 44 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 36 edge slip away in the final period. An upset appeared to be in the making near the end of the game as GHV gradually chipped away at the Bronco lead. Joel Toppinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field goal in the final seconds put the Cardinals ahead, but Belmond answered with a last second layup to preserve their win. Toppin finished the night with 18

points to lead GHV in the scorebook. Braden Meints added 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists while Jake Wolf chipped in 10 points with six rebounds. Holden Hutcheson and Spencer Shaw scored six and five points respectively followed by Harley Forry and Logan Ryerson with two points apiece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If our confidence wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shaken before the game after losing two games, it definitely was tested in the first quarter against Belmond,â&#x20AC;? stated Albertson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they made their first six shots and we struggled to put the ball in the hoop. But we got a big spark from Jake

Wolf off the bench with seven points and some good post defense. We had a hard time making a run at them until the last couple minutes of the game. A steal from Logan Ryerson and a charge taken by Harley Forry put us in position to grab a lead. Joel Toppin hit a big shot to give us the lead and that is how it was supposed to end. Even though we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close the deal, the guys did a great job battling to get to a spot where they could win the game.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals are now 7 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7 overall and with a league mark of 4 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5 they will now have to settle for the role of spoiler in the conference race. GHV will look to rebound this week against Osage at home on Tuesday and at North Iowa on Friday. The week will conclude with a non-conference game at Garrigan on Saturday.

followed by Jade and Jenna Hanson with two points apiece. Bretta Carolus completed the scoring total with a free throw. In the eighth grade game, Jillian Heitland led the Lady Vikes with seven points followed by Bailee Frayne and Jackie Van Oort with five points apiece. Ashley Markla chipped in four points while Alaina Scott and Morgan Westendorf each scored two. The Lady Vikes were scheduled to play at North Iowa on Thursday, but that game has been rescheduled since there was no school that day. VGH did manage to play another set of games last week in spite of the uncooperative weather. The Lady Vike eighth grade squad hosted Forest City on Friday while the seventh graders were on the road against the Indians. The eighth grade teams split a double-header against the Indians as Forest City won the first game 59 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 22 but the Lady Vikes earned a 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12 victory in the second game. Jillian Heitland scored nine points to lead VGH in the first game. Bailee Frayned added four

points to the total followed by Deserae Clevenger, Ashley Markla and Jackie Van Oort with three points apiece. In the second game, Shelby Scott scored eight points for the Lady Vikes while Taylor Boggs scored six and Kaitlin Miller added four. Abby Kale completed the scoring total with two points. At Forest City, VGH led through three quarters of the first game before the Indians rallied in the fourth for a 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 14 win. Mara Anderson led the Lady Vikes with eight points while Audrey Casperson scored four and Maddie Williams added a pair of free throws. VGH pulled away in the second game to win 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 6. Nicole Upmeyer and Hannah Wheelan shared highscoring honors with six points apiece followed by Macey Spilman with four. Brielle Smeby added two points to the scoring total. If the weather cooperates, VGH will play West Hancock on Monday, Belmond on Tuesday and then play a pair of reserve games with Forest City on Thursday.

Eagle grapplers struggle at Lake Mills duals The short-handed West Hancock wrestling team lost all five dual meets at Lake Mills on Saturday, January 18. Coach Mark Sanger was disappointed in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are not a lot of positives to report on,â&#x20AC;? he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had one wrestler with a winning record on Saturday, and that was our 220 pounder Uziel Romero who when 3-2.â&#x20AC;? Sanger said part of the issue with the lack of success has been the healthof the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been hit with the injury bug here lately and need to get some of our guys healed up and back into the line-

up,â&#x20AC;? he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now we have 7 of our guys active out of the 17 on the team. Our goal is to get our guys ready by this weeks end and hopefully be back and in full swing by the time the conference meet rolls around.â&#x20AC;? Sanger also credited the opposition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been faced with some tough competition as of late and this coming week is no different traveling to Osage and Central Springs,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our guys have to gut it out and use these opportunities to gain experience and improve in all facets of their wrestling.â&#x20AC;?

Web training modules address grain storage issues AMES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Crop producers are faced with new grain storage issues as they store increasing amounts of grain for local processing, sometimes storing grain for a full year. A team of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach field and campus specialists, formed as part of the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative, is working to meet the informational needs farmers have related to grain storage. The extension team recently released three Web-based training modules covering key aspects of grain drying and storage. Greg Brenneman and Shawn Shouse, agricultural engineering spe-

cialists with ISU Extension and Outreach, are the online course instructors. The 20-minute modules cover: â&#x20AC;˘ Aeration of stored grain â&#x20AC;˘ Energy efficiency and drying capacity gains from dryeration â&#x20AC;˘ Fan performance and sizing They can be viewed or downloaded at www.extension.iastate.edu/Grain/ Topics/GrainStorage.htm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Higher grain yields and increased local demand have been good for farmers, but also have created a situation where we need to think more about maintaining grain quality on a much larger scale,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Brenneman,

extension agricultural engineering specialist and grain storage team member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is creating Web training modules so farmers can better understand large-scale grain drying and storage, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re connecting them with decision-making tools so they can best manage their grain.â&#x20AC;? Future modules are planned to cover inventory management and shrink, toxins and food safety factors, and preseason preparations for grain storage. Educational modules, publications and decision tools are available on the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.extension.iastate.edu/ Grain/Topics/GrainStorage.htm.

Sowbridge and PorkBridge Programs Begin Soon AMES - The successful pork industry distance education programs SowBridge and PorkBridge are scheduled to begin in early February. Those who want to participate need to register very soon. Iowa State University animal science professor and extension swine specialist Ken Stalder said registrations are still being accepted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although the registration deadline to ensure materials are received in time for the first session for each program has passed, people can still register by completing the form and submitting

payment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will do our best to get materials to our subscribers in time for the initial sessions on Feb. 5 and 6, respectively.â&#x20AC;? Stalder, who also is the Iowa contact for the programs, said the programs offer accurate and timely information on a variety of topics through a regular schedule. In addition, the registration fee has not increased for either program. Each registration provides access to one phone line per session and all the materials for all sessions. For operations with more than one location,

lower fees for subsequent registrations from the same entity are available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost is $250 for SowBridge and $125 for PorkBridge,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Contact us at the Iowa Pork Industry Center for any questions on either program.â&#x20AC;? More information on SowBridge, including a link to the program brochure, is available on the IPIC website. The website also has a section for PorkBridge including that brochure. Iowa residents who want more information on either program can call IPIC at 800808-7675.

AMES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If planning for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden includes finding new plants for shady areas, consider the recommendations of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach horticulturists while paging through and ordering from garden catalogs this winter. What are some good annuals for shady garden areas? Annuals that can be successfully grown in shady areas include wax begonia (Begonia x semperflorens-cultorum), impatiens (Impatiens walleriana), lobelia (Lobelia erinus), coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides), wishbone flower (Torenia fournieri) and pansy (Viola x wittrockiana). Which perennials grow well in shady locations? Perennials that are good choices for partially to heavily shaded locations include black snakeroot (Actaea racemosa), red baneberry (Actaea rubra), ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mantle (Alchemilla mollis), astilbe (Astilbe spp.), Japanese painted fern (Athyrium niponicum var. pictum), heartleaf brunnera (Brunnera macrophylla), bleeding heart (Dicentra spp.), Hakone grass (Hakonechloa macra), hosta (Hosta spp.), crested iris (Iris cristata), cinnamon fern (Osmunda cinnamomea), creeping phlox (Phlox stolonifera), Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ladder (Polemonium caeruleum), lungwort (Pulmonaria spp.), celandine poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum) and toad lily (Tricyrtis spp.). What are some good native

perennials for a shady site? When selecting plants for the shade garden, one group of plants that is often overlooked are native woodland wildflowers. Since they are native to the state, woodland wildflowers are well adapted to the area. They are easy to grow and perform well when given a favorable environment. Native woodland wildflowers that make good additions to the home landscape include wild columbine (Aquilegia canadensis), Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum), goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beard (Aruncus dioicus), Canadian wild ginger (Asarum canadense), Dutchmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breeches (Dicentra cucullaria), shooting star (Dodecatheon meadia), false Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seal (Maianthemum racemosum), Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica), woodland phlox (Phlox divaricata), May apple (Podophyllum peltatum), Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seal (Polygonatum biflorum), bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), trillium (Trillium spp.), merrybells (Uvularia grandiflora) and others. Obtaining plants is easy. Woodland wildflowers are readily available at garden centers and mail-order nurseries. Do not remove plants from natural woodland areas. What are some good groundcovers for shade? Excellent groundcovers for shade include bugleweed (Ajuga spp.), wild ginger (Asarum canadense and A. europaeum), barrenwort (Epimedium spp.), sweet woodruff

AMES â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Onions, one of the most productive of garden vegetables, is a cool-season crop that takes more than 95 days to mature. Planting should be done as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. If grown from seed, onions should be started indoors well in advance of outdoor planting. What is meant by the terms long-day and short-day

onion? Onion bulb formation begins when a certain day length is reached. Short-day onion varieties (cultivars) begin to form bulbs when they receive 10 to 12 hours of daylight, intermediate-day onions need 12 to 14 hours of daylight, and long-day cultivars require 14 or more hours of daylight. Bulb size is largely determined by the number and size of the leaves at bulb initiation.

(Galium odoratum), hosta (Hosta spp.), yellow archangel (Lamium galeobdolon), spotted deadnettle (Lamium maculatum), creeping lily-turf (Liriope spicata), Japanese pachysandra (Pachysandra terminalis), lungwort (Pulmonaria spp.), foam flower (Tiarella cordifolia) and vinca (Vinca minor). Variegated bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weed (Aegopodium podagraria â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Variegatumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) and lily-of-thevalley (Convallaria majalis) are two other shade-tolerant groundcovers. Unfortunately, both plants spread rapidly and often become invasive.

These aggressive spreaders should not be planted with other perennials as they quickly crowd out neighboring plants. Variegated bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weed and lily-of-the-valley should be planted only in areas where they can be confined (for example, between a building and sidewalk) or allowed to spread freely. The horticulturists also answer questions that come to Hortline, Iowa Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horticulture hotline. Reach Hortline by calling 515-2943108 or emailing hortline@iastate. edu.

The larger the tops (foliage area) at bulb initiation, the larger the size of the mature bulbs. (The size of onion bulbs also depends on weather, soil conditions and other factors.) Long-day onion cultivars are the best choice for gardeners in Iowa and other states in the upper midwest. Short-day cultivars generally produce small bulbs when grown in northern areas because of the small amount of foliage present at bulb initiation. Long-day cultivars, however, are able to produce large tops before bulb initiation occurs. As a result, long-day onion cultivars typically produce the biggest bulbs. What are some good onion varieties for Iowa? Suggested onion varieties (cultivars) for home gardens in Iowa include: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Candyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yellow-brown skin, globe-shaped, short-term storage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Copraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; main season, yellow-brown skin, excellent storage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Red Burgermasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bright red, globe-shaped, good storage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Red Zeppelinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; deep red, globe-shaped, excellent storage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stuttgarterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; flattened globes, light brown skin, excellent storage, from sets â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Walla Walla Sweetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; late season, yellow-brown skin, shortterm storage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White Sweet Spanishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; late season, white skin, short term shortage I would like to start

some onion plants indoors. When should I sow the seeds? Using a well-drained growing medium, sow onion seeds in flats approximately eight to 10 weeks before you intend to plant them outdoors. As soon as the seeds germinate, place the onion seedlings under artificial lighting. An ordinary fluorescent shop fixture, containing one 40 watt cool white and one 40 watt warm white tube, works fine. The light fixture should be placed no more than 4 to 6 inches above the seedlings. Growing temperatures should be 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Insufficient light and temperatures above 65 F promote spindly growth. Thin the onion seedlings (within two to three weeks of germination) if the plants are crowded. Harden or acclimate the onion seedlings outdoors for seven to 10 days before planting into the garden. Initially, place the plants in a shady, protected location. Then gradually expose the plants to longer periods of sunlight. Bring the seedlings back indoors if nighttime temperatures are forecast to drop to 32 F or below. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually safe to begin planting onion seedlings outdoors in early to mid-April in central Iowa. Horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach answer questions about growing onions. To have additional questions answered, contact Hortline at hortline@iastate.edu or 515-2943108.

It’s doggone cold…

Sundogs (caused the reflection of sunlight off ice crystals in the clouds) in the Eastern sky are a testament to recent frigid temperatures. On Sunday, blizzard conditions existed throughout much of the region. Hancock County Sheriff Scott Dodd said people heeded the blizzard warnings on Sunday and stayed off the road. By Monday morning, the wind had abated, but temperature again plunged below zero. (LEADER photo)
