Exchange students share experiences of home, Iowa

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Gideon Danbauchi and Jelena Jaggi’s homes are a world apart, yet the two are joined by a common thread as overseas visitors spending the year as exchange students at Grundy Center High School. Danbauchi is a 16-year-old from a small town in Nigeri where his father serves as a pastor. He is staying with the Day family. Jaggi, also 16, comes to the United States from Switzerland where she is already a college student. She is staying with the Cleveland family. Both said they came to the United States wanting to see something new. “I was pretty bored (at home) because I knew everything, so I thought I wanted to see something new,” Jaggi said. “I want to discover the world and see different cultures and totally learn the language because my English was pretty bad. I was like ‘I can improve my English, see new things here …’ Danbauchi said he tried several times to get a scholarship so he could see a new part of the world before passing the test to get into the program. “I was excited,” he said. Danbauchi said he truly had no idea what to expect in the United States. His uncle had been to the United Kingdom and he had seen movies, but … “it was almost scary from the movies I watched as a kid,” he said. “There were guns everywhere and big cities everywhere. Before we came we had orientation - I knew culture was different.” The most different than what he expected, he said, are the people. “I thought the people would be nice, but when I came the people were more nice than I expected them to be,” he said. Jaggi’s first true experience with the people of Grundy Center was a bit of an eye opener about how she might be met. “When I first came here I went to the pool and people came up to me and said ‘Hey, you must be the new exchange student, I’ve heard a lot about you,’” she said. “I was like, ‘OK, I don’t know you but nice to meet you.’ I knew that they were going to be friendly, but I didn’t

(John Jensen/The Grundy Register photo) expect people to be coming up to me. Not even my host brothers knew them sometimes. It was actually nice — you are in a new country and people are already open to you. It feels pretty good. Jaggi said she has always been impressed with the United States because it seemed so big. “I came from this tiny, tiny country and then the US everything is so big and I wanted to see that,”

she said. So far she said it’s been different than she expected. Things are big … but also different. “I remember the first day I was here my brothers took me to town and I was wondering why are there so many stop signs,” she said. “Everything is totally different — even the roads. “We never have pickups and there are huge trucks over here, the

roads are pretty wide,” she said. “Everything is a checkerboard and really straight. We don’t have that — our roads have curves.” Jaggi said the biggest city she’s seen in the United State so far is Des Moines, and that’s “pretty big already. “So I’m thinking, ‘How is New York or Los Angeles?’” A major shock for Danbuchi was something those from the

Midwestern U.S. take for granted … and often would like to see a little less of. “Snow. I was in my room and (they) said ‘Gideon come to the window’ and I saw it falling. I thought ‘Awesome’ when I saw it in real life.” The first chance he could, Danbuchi said he was outside making a snowball, playing like a little kid. “I just made a snowball and kicked it,” he said. Both students said school is very different in the United States than what they attended at home. Danbuchi has attended boarding school, hours from his parents’ home, since he was 11. Jaggi has already finished what Switzerland calls high school and is taking college classes. “(School is) pretty intense over there,” she said. “Where I go to school we sometimes have school for 11 hours. Every day is different. It’s not really comparable (to here). We are in same school from first through sixth grade and then get separated into three different groups — the fast learners, normal ones and the kind of bad kids. “After eighth grade we can choose to go to college or finish school — school just goes through ninth grade.” A new experience for Jaggi was the prevalence of sports in American high schools. “We don’t have any sports in school, we have to do that in clubs and it’s pretty new for me,” she said. “We wouldn’t even have time for it.” Danbuchi said the sports are one of his favorite parts of the school here. He ran with the Grundy Center cross country team last fall and is part of the basketball team this winter. In the spring he’ll be in much more of his own element as a member of the soccer team. He said playing sports

has helped him make friends. Both said they are required to take classes in English and American history and government. Danbuchi talked about learning about historical aspects of U.S. history while Jaggi focused on the governmental differences between here and home. “It’s interesting but pretty hard for me because we have a totally different system,” she said. “We don’t have a president; we have like seven different parties. People vote a lot, It’s interesting to see something new how other countries are ruled.” Danbuchi said he has hopes of becoming a doctor. While in Grundy Center he’s been able to observe a surgery at Grundy Center Memorial Hospital and watch his sister’s wisdom tooth surgery. He said seeing the surgeries has done nothing but excite him more about the future. Both talked about wanting to take advantage of their remaining time in the United States. Jaggi said she hopes to see downtown Chicago in all its glory while Danbuchi said he’ll enjoy anything he has the change to see. “I just want to see a little more of the country,” she said. “I want to have a good time, and spend time with my family.” “I would like to see new places if I have the chance, but if I don’t it’s OK,” Danbuchi said. When Danbuchi returns home he’ll have one more year of high school and then plans to attend college. If he has the chance, he said he’ll return to the United States to study again. “I like it here,” he said. Jaggi will have to repeat the year of school she missed while coming to the U.S. Once she finishes her current program, she said she’ll have the chance to continue with higher education.

County law enforcement contract rates to climb By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Grundy County law enforcement contracts will see a 4 percent rate hike in Fiscal Year 2015. Monday the Board of Supervisors approved the new rate for contracts, which cover enforcement contracted by the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department. The contracts are for Conrad, Dike, Reinbeck and Wellsburg, which require officers to live in town and have hours of coverage requirements, as well as Beaman, Holland, Morrison and Stout which have no required residency or minimum hours of service requirement. Sheriff Rick Penning said the county always raises rates incrementally and that rate hikes cover more than increased wages to deputies. “I think 4 percent is a good number,” he said. Supervisor Mark Schildroth added that the current system, which has the Sheriff’s Department covering all of the county except the city of Grundy Center, has been working well. County Engineer Gary Mauer presented bid results for replacement of a bridge on County Highway D-35 in Holland. PCI of Reinbeck was the low bidder for the project at $308,583.31, well below the Secondary Roads Department’s estimated cost of $334,000. A second bidder came in at nearly $360,000 for the project. The project will begin by July 21, and PCI has a maximum 65 days to complete the project before penalties kick in. Costs of the bridge replacement will be shared by federal, county and local governments at a rate of 80 percent federal and 10 percent each from the City of Holland and Grundy County.

Mauer said the new bridge will be significantly larger than the one being replaced. County departments continued to present budget requests to the Board. The Grundy County Fair Board submitted a request that was $1,000 less than its request of a year ago (though more than the Supervisors approved). Fair Board President Ron Flater thanked the Board for their appropriation last year, noting that the Board had to work extra to bring electric service up to code last year and that the Cowboy Building had problems, though most costs associated with them were covered by the building’s manufacturer. Flater said the Board plans to bring more entertainment to the Fair this year, with more tractor pulling events. He said the Board hopes to do some painting at the show ring building and complete siding on the dairy building, for which grants have been applied for. In the long term he said the Board hopes to add a 40-unit campground on the south side of the fairgrounds. “We get requests for groups wanting to camp out there,” he said. The Fairgrounds currently has 12 or 13 camping spots, according to Flater, and those spots are already rented for Fair week. All told, including grounds rental, Flater said the Fairgrounds bring in about $12,000 in rentals each year. Rentals slated for this year include the Cedar Valley Jeep Club in August as well as three swap meets. Flater added that 4-H numbers are improving as children who enrolled in 4-H as Clover Kids become old enough for the traditional club. “That is good news for us,” he said. “If we get the same money as last year it will be doable,” Flater added. “We’re looking for grants to help finish the work.” Custodian Mark Jungling

submitted the same budget request as he did a year ago. Key projects for Fiscal 2015 include siding the sheriff’s office and roofing the jail. He added that the County may want to start setting money aside for the eventual purchase of a yard tractor, as the current one has reached about 70 percent of its estimated lifespan. Auditor Rhonda Deters presented a budget that included a $1,000 increase for electronic supplies due to expected electronic polling changes. She added that passport applications and income related to them are up this year. CPC Administrator Todd Rickert requested the same allocation for chemical dependency programs than

last year despite needing a budget amendment to cover additional costs this year. “In 2014 we’ve had more need,” he said. “We hope it’s an aberration.” Rickert’s request for general assistance and mental health dollars were also the same as a year ago. He said he expects to see some requests for assistance due to the recent spike in propane prices, though he has not received any requests yet. Following the budget requests, Supervisors began to discuss what to do with this year’s levy rates. Though levy numbers were not discussed, Deters said it would take $5,875,869 to fund all budget and grant requests as they have been

presented to the Board. Supervisors, however, can adjust budget requests to bring that number down. It was also mentioned that increasing the portion of insurance that employees pay could also drop the rate. IN OTHER BUSINESS, the Board: • Approved a fuel purchase from Diamond Oil of Des Moines for 5,000 gallons of winter blend diesel at $3.2114 per gallon and 3,000 gallons of gasohol at $2.6236 per gallon; • Approved 2013 business property tax credit application recommendations.

The bridge on County Road D-35 appears fine on the surface but shows problems on the understructure. The bridge will be replaced this summer. (John Jensen/The Grundy Register photo)

State Association of Counties approves One injured to support fuel tax hike in Highway 20 resolution The Board of the Directors of the and bridges. These bonds are repaid Iowa State Association of Counties with property tax revenues, contrary crash (ISAC) today approved a resolution to the state’s goal of reducing propHOLLAND — One person was injured in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 20 last Thursday. According to the Grundy County Sheriff's Department, Matthew Seymour, 38, of Des Moines was driving a 2003 International truck tractor pulling a semi-trailer eastbound approximately one mile east of the Highway 14 interchange when he fell asleep, lost control and entered the median. The truck rolled onto its side, blocking both lanes of Highway 20. Seymour was transported to Sartori Hospital in Cedar Falls with unknown injuries. The accident remains under investigation. Assisting the Sheriff's Department at the scene were the Iowa State Patrol and the Dike Fire and Ambulance.

stating support of a fuel tax increase. Road funding is one of ISAC’s top legislative priorities this year as approved by the full membership. The Grundy County Board of Supervisors voiced its support for the measure earlier this year. Iowa’s roads and bridges are a vital component of the continued growth of the state’s economy, and every road jurisdiction is struggling to adequately maintain its portion of the road system. The cost of building and maintaining roads continues to increase, while the user fee per gallon of gasoline has not increased since 1989. In addition to general inflation, Iowa’s road maintenance issues have been exacerbated by harsh winters, floods, and heavy equipment usage. Due to the shortfall in road funding, counties have turned to bonding in order to provide critical funding for maintenance of roads

erty tax expenditures throughout the state. Additionally, the use of bonds fails to capture funding from the outof-state vehicles impacting Iowa’s roads. “The per gallon fuel tax is the most equitable way to charge for the use of public roads and bridges, and 20-30% of the revenue is generated from out-of-state travelers and businesses,” stated ISAC President Harlan Hansen. “ISAC supports a phased-in 10-cent increase in the per gallon fuel tax and the ongoing evaluation of long term, sustainable transportation funding solutions.” The resolution requests that the Iowa legislature pass legislation to phase in a 10-cent per gallon increase in the fuel tax and other long term sustainable funding solutions and that the Governor encourage passage of this legislation and sign approval upon passage.

Green Belt donates to GCHS ultimate mileage vehicle Green Belt Bank & Trust presented the Grundy Center High School industrial technology class with a do-

nation for their Ultimate Mileage Vehicle project. The Ultimate Vehicle Competition is held annually in Des Moines where schools compete by building cars. The goal is to achieve the highest miles per gallon possible while safely maneuvering around the track with 30 other cars. The Grundy Center students are working hard on the GC Ultimate Mileage Vehicle (UMV) for the state competition in Des Moines. This year the class is building a new three-wheel car to run along with the four-wheel car from past years. They have many parts donated and the kids are always busy scrapping copper, aluminum and brass to help pay for the UMV. The current fundraiser is to purchase a small enclosed trailer. The trailer cost is $2,800. (Courtesy photo)

Accidents Involving Another Person or Deceased Person in Sweet Grass County, Mont. According to an Associated Press story, Montana prosecutors say Welk was driving a tractor-trailer on Interstate 90 near Big Timber, Mont. Sept. 30 when the truck he was driving hit and killed Elgie Bedford, 81, of Wasilla, Alaska. A passenger in the sleeping area of the truck told investigators that he felt the truck hit something and that Welk stated he his someone. Court records state that when questioned by the Ohio State Patrol at a truck stop in Easton, Ohio, Welk told a state trooper that he hit a deer. Other information indicates that Welk told a repairman for the trucking company he was driving for that he hit a hawk. Welk appeared in Grundy County court Friday, where a $250,000 bond on a Montana warrant for his arrest remained in effect. He waived extradition and remained in the Grundy County Jail as of Monday, awaiting transfer to Montana authorities.

Area schools face tough new foes One of the most successful football-playing schools in Iowa history will be among district opponents for three local schools the next two years while two local schools will play a nearly new set of district opponents. Those were the highlights of district pairings announced by the Iowa High School Athletic Association late last week. The assignments are for the 2014 and 2015 football seasons. AGWSR, Grundy Center and Gladbrook-Reinbeck were placed in Class A, District 4 together along with BCLUW, Denver, North Tama and Wapsie Valley. The district is a complete reversal for AGWSR, as it becomes the northwestern most team in its district this year after being the farthest east school the past two years. Grundy Center, GladbrookReinbeck, BCLUW and North Tama were in a district together the past two years. Denver drops from Class 1A to Class A to join the group this year while AGWSR comes over from Class A, District 2 and Wapsie Valley comes over from District 3. Three of the district’s seven teams were district champions last year, with G-R winning District 4, Wapsie Valley District 3 and AGWSR winning a share of the District 2 title. Wapsie Valley won the Class A state championship two years ago and has made the playoffs eight straight

The Wolverines could still have an opportunity to play A-P in a non-district game. Non-district opponents and 201314 schedules will be announced at a later date. Schools have this week to send the IHSAA five preferences for non-district opponents, from which the state association will create nondistrict schedules. Grundy Center Athletic Director Rollie Ackerman said even if two schools send each other as preferred opponents they are not guaranteed to play one another. Gone this year are companion football districts. Instead, the IHSAA will set playoff matchups, with a 125-mile limitation in place for first-round games. Also gone will be playoff brackets. Instead the state association will set pairings on a round-by-round basis. The Board of Control also voted against a proposal to reduce the regular season by one game, instead opting to keep the nine-game season intact and begin the playoffs the Wednesday following the final regular-season game.

Super Bowl week cometh. And with Super Bowl week comes the everpresent set of special advertisements and more eyeballs glued to the television than any other time all year. This year’s Super Bowl has some interesting storylines if for no other reason than these were probably the two best teams in the NFL this year. Most people picked Denver to win the AFC before the season (most except your’s truly — I picked the Bengals) and most people had Seattle on their short list of contenders. And it looks like an entertaining matchup with the league’s best offense and best defense. Which brings me to the point of this column, which is where Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning belongs in the hierarchy of greatest professional football quarterbacks By JOHN JENSEN of all time. If you go strictly by the statistics, he’s clearly on the short list of greatest ever. But football is more than about statistics ... or is it? The most important statistic in any sport is wins and losses. A quarterback can throw for 500 yards and seven touchdowns, but if his team loses he’s had a bad day. Argue all you want about that with me, but I would advise you not to waste your time. Yet quarterbacks are almost never measured on wins and losses. Those who have a much louder voice than I do say football is too much of a team game to credit a quarterback with a win or a loss. Instead we look at statistics like yards and touchdowns. To me those are compilation stats. Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre is the NFL’s career leader in both, yet other than from diehard Packer fans you won’t see many people placing him at the top of the list of the best ever. Manning ranks right behind Favre in yards and TDs, also ranks in the top 20 in career interceptions thrown. So does that make Manning a compiler? The thing that puts Manning ahead of most other quarterbacks is his ability to manipulate a defense at the line of scrimmage. I’m pretty sure that a lot of what he yells is meaningless, though watching him look around, point at certain places certainly makes a defense think. And if a defense is thinking it isn’t reacting and has a tendency to get out of what it does best. Manning’s critics will point to his only moderate success in the postseason, where he is 11-11 with just one Super Bowl title in two previous appearances. That particular talk died off about a week ago when he led the Broncos back

Disappointed in Farm Bureau

Wednesday & Thursday

I am disappointed and ashamed of the Iowa Farm Bureau for not supporting Iowa landowners. Farm Bureau claims to use its grassroots strength to be a voice for agriculture and rural communities. Rock Island Clean Line (RICL) is a group of out-of-state investors that want to use eminent domain to take private agricultural property to build a proposed non-regulated, private, for-profit transmission line from northwest Iowa to Chicago and eventually to the East Coast. RICL is not even a public utility. They merely want to build this transmission line that has no contracted buyer or supplier of the electricity. This is a speculative project at best and RICL wants to bully their way through private property to build this line. This will set a bad precedent. I believe that a vast majority of Iowans feel that taking someone’s property in this manner is wrong. Please, Farm Bureau, stand by your claim to ”obsessively, relentlessly work for us” and fight for private landowner’s rights.

to the bowl but will undoubtedly come back if he doesn’t win Sunday. Though it doesn’t affect his play on the field, something working in Manning’s favor among fans is his personality. He’s just an incredibly charismatic person. If you haven’t seen it, go to YouTube and look up Peyton Manning Saturday Night Live and then find his United Way skit ... though you might want to leave junior in the other room. Go now, I’ll be here when you get back. There were a couple of other decent Manning skits that night, and his series of Mastercard advertisements that ran a few years ago were just as funny. Even his calls at the line of scrimmage are compelling. Manning has been yelling “Omaha, Omaha” prior to the snap for years, yet it was only a few weeks ago that television picked up on it. Here’s a hint folks ... more often than not (but not always) the ball is snapped on the next sound out of Manning’s mouth after he yells “Omaha.” It also doesn’t hurt that both his father and brother were successful in their own rights, and all have been stand-up individuals whom you would be proud to have your kids cheer for. So where does Manning rank? Certainly among the elite. Is he the best to ever play the position? Probably not. Is he the best of this generation, however? That title is certainly between he and Tom Brady. I feel like picking between the two of them is like picking between chili and beef stew — they are different but great. In an ideal world the two will go into the Hall of Fame together. Another storyline that has already been drilled into our heads ad nauseam is that this Super Bowl is the first one to be played outdoors in a cold-weather city. We will not hear the end of the talking heads whining about the weather ... they’ll complain and criticize yet gladly eat their complementary meal and take their complementary press packets. I speak from experience here. The last time I checked, Sunday’s forecast for East Rutherford, N.J. (where the stadium is located) is for clouds, relatively light winds and about 30 degrees at game time. That doesn’t sound too bad (particularly for those of us who think 30 sounds warm) until you think about sitting out in it for four, five hours or more. And I can’t think there will be a lot of places in that stadium to get out of the cold. We have cold weather for high school games at the end of the year, though rarely will you have a game as cold as it could be Sunday. And high school games are much, much shorter than a Super Bowl with its extended pregame and halftime shows. Like me, however, I’m pretty sure each of you will be watching the game either on the couch or at your favorite local establishment. Which brings us to the question of snacks, and which are the best for the big game. When I’m at a game (as a fan, not as a reporter) I like things like nachos and ice cream. The super nachos at the state wrestling tournament are to die for. But at home I’ll keep it a lot more simple — probably a cheese and meat tray and that’s about it. This is where I would usually make a prediction about who is going to win the game, boldly saying the same thing that half the talking heads are saying. But the fact is that I’m not sure who will come out on top. I’ll be cheering for the Broncos, as I have all postseason, but would not be at all surprised it Seattle won. If I were a betting man this is a game I wouldn’t touch.

Question: What are the federal service academies? Answer: The United States has five federal service academies: the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, N.Y.; the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md.; the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo.; the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, N.Y.; and, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, New London, Conn. These elite institutions of higher learning educate and train the nation’s next generation of military leaders. Graduates of the service academies earn college degrees and receive a commission as an officer in one of the five branches of the armed forces, which include the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Not long after the Revolutionary War, the United States Military Academy was founded on March 16, 1802, to develop leaders who reflect the values of “duty, honor, country” in service to their country as career officers in the army. Each of the academies provides academic and technical training for graduates to serve, succeed and lead in their commissioned assignments and professional careers. Question: Who is eligible to attend a service academy? Answer: The highly competitive selection process is open to U.S. citizens ages 17 to 23. Typically, interested high school students who are juniors in high school begin the nominations process during their spring semester. Candidates must receive an authorized nomination from either the Vice President or a member of Congress or via a military service- connected nomination. Representing Iowa in the U.S. Senate, I have the opportunity each year to make nominations for a select few service academy placements. The Air Force, Military, and Naval service academies each select at least one qualified student from my nominations. The Merchant Marine Academy makes selections in proportion to each state’s representation in Congress. The U.S. Coast Guard does not require a congressional nomination. Those who receive an appointment would serve among a prestigious corps of young men and women from across the United States. For generations the nation’s service academies have earned a reputation of excellence, drawing upon a highly motivated talent pool that includes the best and brightest among America’s youngest generation of leaders. The nominating process vets candidates based upon the highest standards of excellence and personal achievement, including outstanding moral character, scholarship, leadership, physical aptitude and community service. Upon graduation, alumni serve in the active or reserve components of the military, the Merchant Marine or the U.S. Coast Guard for a minimum of five years. For example, a graduate of the U.S. Military Service Academy serves five years of active duty and three years in the reserves. This service obligation reflects the nation’s return on a fully funded, four-year, top-ranked college education. Question: What criteria do you take into account during the nominations process? Answer: Applicants should rank at least in the top half of their high school class in a college preparatory curriculum. Candidates should have ACT scores in the 25-36 range in math and science, and in the 22-36 range in English. They should have extensive extracurricular activities, such as participation in school clubs, academic or athletic teams, community activities, volunteer service or work experience. Applicants must be legal residents of Iowa or dependents of members of the military who are legal residents of Iowa. Applicants must be unmarried with no children or legal obligation for a child, and at least 17 years of age but not past their 23rd birthday on July 1, 2015.

The Age of Anxiety We live in perilous times. Rogue states with chemical or atomic weapons, fanatical terrorist groups spreading fear and hatred across the globe, and technology that changes too quickly for anyone to keep up with it are all part of our modern world. Our fears are stoked by the modern media’s 24/7 news cycle and its insistence that something terrible is just around the corner. Even those who are not particularly tuned into the news are anxious; there is a certain anxiety that comes with our modern technology. The noise of the cell phone ringing is like an alarm going off and it’s often just as startling. The ping of your computer telling you that you have a new message pushes the same anxiety button, and since our phones allow us to be constantly connected we are now living constantly with alarms, buzzers and a sense of time urgency. So, what can we do about all of this? A first step might be to choose more soothing ring tones or just to turn the computer and phone off for extended periods of time. We should also take time out of our busy schedules for solitude and quiet time, a time when we might commune with God or nature and our souls can be at rest. God does not want us to be anxious; be in His presence and trust in the Lord. – Christopher Simon

The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:5-6 ******************************************************************************************

Dike resident, Waterloo Bucks manager reviews historic season DIKE — Waterloo Bucks manager Travis Kiewiet had quite a season in 2013. In his second year at the helm, Kiewiet led the Bucks to a Northwoods League Record 51 wins. The former Dike-New Hartford High School baseball coach and current Hudson Middle School/High School teacher was named Northwoods League Manager of the Year for his efforts. “After spending the previous five seasons with the Waterloo Bucks wondering if we would have a winning record it all came together last summer in which we set the Northwoods League record for wins in a season at 51,” he said “Although we came up short in bringing home a championship to the Cedar Valley, it was great to see all the excitement and support that we had from the fans who came out to Riverfront Stadium. “We finished fourth out of 16 teams in attendance this past summer which has me even more excited about what this summer will bring. The team that will take the field for us this year will have the most returning players that I have seen since

my time in being part of the Bucks. And the new players that we have signed should fit in nicely with our returners in hopes of making us once again a top team in the Northwoods League. “Even though our season is still four months away, the Waterloo Bucks organization is working hard to put a quality team on the field and creating a fun atmosphere for our fans. Thank you to all who came out last summer and I look forward to seeing the stands full once again this summer.”

The Success of the Trumpeter Swan

By NICK BUSEMAN Grundy County Conservation Operation Supervisor The Trumpeter Swan is one of three species of swans that frequent Iowa, and occasionally Grundy County. The three species of swans are the Tundra Swan, Mute Swan, and lastly the Trumpeter Swan. The Trumpeter Swan is a native nesting species to Iowa. Prior to settlement, Trumpeter Swans nested throughout the state, and with the work of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources we are able to witness that again. There were several reasons for the demise of the Trumpeter Swan, the draining of wetlands for agricultural purposes and unregulated hunting led the eradication of swans nesting in the state. During settlement market hunters over hunted the population, market hunters were harvesting these large birds for not only their meat but also their feathers. The feathers of the Trumpeter Swan became very popular in Chicago, New York, and many other highly populated areas. It was even believed that pelts from Iowa swans ended up in Europe. Until 1998 the last nesting wild pair of swans occurred way back in 1883 on the Twin Lake Wildlife Area southwest of Belmond. Trumpeter Swans were first given nationwide protection in 1918 when the United States, Mexico, and Canada signed the International Migratory Bird Treaty. By the early 1930’s the nationwide swan count showed that only 69 existed in the continental United States. With all

It wasn’t until 1993 that the Iowa DNR developed a plan to restore Trumpeter Swans to the state. The goals of the DNR were to establish 15 wild nesting pairs back to the state by 2003, while also promoting wetlands for habitat and water quality. Many of the swans used to start this project were obtained from zoos and other state swan projects. Also during this time they were establishing flightless breeder pairs at different sites. Many of these birds were injured by power lines, guy wires, or hunters. One example of this is at Pine Lake State Park. The design of these flightless projects is to play match maker and find a pair of birds to raise a brood of cygnets (young swans); which will be birds that will be able to fly and hopefully return to Iowa to nest in the future. In 1998 a wild nesting pair hatched three cygnets in Dubuque

County. This pair also hatched five cygnets in 1999 and 2000. The successful nest in 1998 was the first recorded nest in Iowa in 115 years. During 2000, 34 of the partnership pairs produced 118 young. Of the 118 cygnets 36 of them died from various mortality causes. Throughout the project the mortality rates are somewhat higher than they expected, but overall the project has been very successful in reestablishing Trumpeter Swans to Iowa. Over the years the DNR with cooperation from county conservation boards and private land owners have succeeded in establishing nesting pairs in many locations in Iowa. Many of those locations are located in the prairie pothole region of Iowa. The prairie pothole region of Iowa is located in the north central part of the state. Overall the Trumpeter Swan restoration project has been a great success in providing the state with restored wetlands and bringing back the Trumpeter Swan.

Bisbee Massacre

By SUE ECKHOFF Grundy County Heritage Museum The Bisbee Massacre, also known as the Bisbee Murders, or the Bisbee Raid, occurred on December 8, 1883, when a gang of bandits robbed a general store in Bisbee, Arizona, killing four people. Five men were later executed for the crime, becoming the first criminals to be legally hanged in Tombstone. A sixth man was sentenced to live in prison, but he was killed by a lynch mob on February 22, 1884. Today, the graves of the bandits are a popular tourist attraction at the Boothill Graveyard in Tombstone. The Bisbee Massacre was committed by a group of outlaw cowboys named Daniel (Big Dan) Dowd; Comer W. (Red) Sample; Daniel (York) Kelly; William E. (Billy) Delaney, and James (Tex) Howard. In the aftermath of the shooting, it was learned that a saloon owner named John Wesley Heath was also involved, although he did not participate in the actual shooting. Heath was a Texas cattle rustler in his youth, but he later settled in Arizona and served as a deputy sheriff of Cochise County. Paid little through the county, Heath opened a saloon, and turned to banditry when the opportunity presented itself. The massacre took place at the Goldwater and Castaneda Mercantile, the largest in town. Heath had learned that a $7,000 payroll for the Copper Queen Mine was being held there, so he recruited his friends to steal it. Three bandits remained outside with the horses; two went inside for the money. They found that the payroll had not yet arrived. They then decided to take whatever they could find in the safe and steal the valuables from the employees and customers. As the two robbers were heading out the door, the three bandits outside began “shooting up the town” in the usual Western style. A customer inside the store was the first to be killed, struck by a bullet that came through the front window. Deputy Sheriff Tom Smith came running down the street after hearing the first shot and was also killed. A bullet passed through the wooden wall of a nearby boarding house, killing a pregnant woman. Another wounded a man as he stood outside the door of his office, and a final bullet hit a bystander in the leg. In less than five minutes, four people were dead, and two others wounded. The bandits then left town at a leisurely pace, stopping to rob people along the way. At a place called Soldiers Hole east of Bisbee they divided the money and went their separate ways. The people of Bisbee quickly formed 2 posses and by January 1884 all of the bandits had been rounded up. All of the bandits indicated that John Heath, the lawman, had prior knowledge of the robbery and he was arrested accordingly. February 17 was the trial for the five murderers, and all were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to hang on March 28. Heath was convicted of second degree murder, receiving a life sentence at the Yuma Territorial Prison. The people of Cochise County were not happy with his sentence, and on February 22, a lynch mob broke into the jail, kidnapped Heath at gunpoint, and hung him from a telegraph pole. The coroner’s jury reflected in their verdict that John Heath’s death came from emphysema of the lungs, a disease common in high altitudes, which might have been caused by strangulation, self inflicted or otherwise. Invitations were sent to the execution of the remaining five murderers and they were hanged on March 29, 1884 with over one thousand persons witnessing the execution.

You can ď&#x192;&#x17E;gure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Spartan boys lose to South Hardin Rebels win twice, set up NICL West title showdown By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent GRUNDY CENTER – The Grundy Center boys dropped games to two NICL-West rivals this past week. The Spartans fell to South Hardin 65-51 at home on Friday, after a 69-60 loss at South Tama on Tuesday. The Spartans (5-11 overall, 4-7 NICL-West) have just one game scheduled this week, a home game with East Marshall on Friday, Jan. 31.

South Hardin 65, Grundy Center 51 Grundy Center played South Hardin even for three full quarters at the NICL-West matchup at Grundy Center Friday, but a 21-7 run by the Tigers in the second quarter gave them the advantage that held for the 14-point win. Grundy Center assistant coach Joel Johnson was at the helm in the absence of Head Coach Ackerman who was out ill. “I thought the boys played hard but it came to down to two simple things, boxing out on the boards and taking care of the basketball,” Coach Johnson said. “Give credit to South Hardin, they made some tough shots and kept us at bay.” Jack Stumberg was the lone Spartan to score in double digits, putting up 14 points. Nick Saak and Jordan Stoner added eight points each. Jeff Pikna led in rebounding with eight, Lane Bangasser led in assists with three, and Austin Burroughs topped the steals category with four. Grundy Center 16 7 16 12 — 51 South Hardin 12 21 17 15 — 65 Grundy Center (51) – Austin Burroughs 2 2-2 7; Sam Thompson 2 0-0 5; Jack Stumberg 6 0-0 14; Jordan Stoner 3 2-2 8; Brady Hook 2 0-0 5; Lane Bangasser 1 0-0 2; Bryce Moats 0 0-0 0; Tanner Pelzer 0 0-0 0; Jeff Pikna 1 0-0 2; Brock Rohler 0 0-0 0; Ethan Hogle 0 0-0

Assists: Grundy Center 15 (Bangasser 3, five tied 3), South Hardin NA. Steals: Grundy Center 8 (Burroughs 4, Thompson 2), South Hardin NA. Blocks: Grundy Center 3 (Stoner 2, Moats 1), South Hardin NA. Fouled out: Stoner. Total fouls: Grundy Center 16, South Hardin NA.


REINBECK — Gladbrook-Reinbeck rallied from a halftime deficit Friday to set up a likely battle for the North Iowa Cedar West Division title this week. The Rebels (12-2 overall, 10-1 in the Division) came from behind to beat AGWSR 60-55 after downing BCLUW 80-58 earlier in the week. G-R hosts a tough non-divisional game against Jesup Tuesday before visiting league co-leader West Marshall Friday. A G-R win would put it in position to win the outright league title while a Trojan victory would put it in the driver’s seat for the title. The co-leaders are three games ahead of third-place AGWSR with three games left to play.

South Tama 69, Grundy Center

At South Tama on Tuesday Grundy Center held an eight point lead at the half, but South Tama scored 22 points and cut the Spartan lead to three by the end of the third period. The Trojans put together another big quarter in the fourth, scoring 21 to just nine by the Spartans, to take the lead and the win by nine. “We are our own worst enemy in many ways, through turnovers, defensive break-downs, and inconsistency,” Grundy Center head coach Rollie Ackerman said. “We have to keep working on this as the regular season winds down and as we prepare for tournament play.” “We have shown that when we play well, we can play with anyone in the area, but we have to learn to play with consistency and play well from start to finish,” he said. “It’s frustrating, but we are so close, we have to keep working and get our execution down for tournament play.” Jordan Stoner and Lane Bangasser led the Spartan offense with 17 and 16 points respectively. Brady Hook led the boards with 11 rebounds and Stoner had nine. Jack Stumberg provided six assists and Sam Thompson came away with five steals. South Tama’s Darius Lasley led all scorers with 27 points. Grundy Center 18 16 17 9 — 60 South Tama 11 15 22 21 — 69

AGWSR girls top West Marshall BY PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent STATE CENTER – The AGWSR girls’ basketball team went 1-1 in NICL-West play this past week, capturing a win over West Marshall by a single point, 38-37, but falling to Gladbrook-Reinbeck in a double overtime battle, 58-53. AGWSR (8-7 overall, 7-5 NICL-West) was scheduled for a pair of home games this week, hosting Aplington-Parkersburg on Tuesday, Jan. 28, and NICL-West leader South Tama on Friday, Jan. 31. AGWSR 38, West Marshall 37 AGWSR was down by three with less than 30 seconds on the clock when they fouled and turned a West Marshall missed free throw into a two point bucket, cutting the deficit to one. With nine seconds to go the Cougars converted a steal by Madi Fryslie into two more points to take the lead by one and escape with the 38-37 win. “We were pleased to get out of there with win”, AGWSR head coach Laurie Gann said. “Some of our usual scorers were having a hard time getting baskets to go down.” Maddie Brandt led the Cougars with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Madi Fryslie and Kim Ellingson each provided three assists, and Alexa Johnson blocked four West Marshall shots. Five different Cougar players recorded two steals apiece. Gabby Ryerson paced the Trojans with 24 points, 12 rebounds, four steals, and three blocked shots.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck 58, AGWSR 53 AGWSR led 43-37 with 1:57 left in regulation, but the Rebels connected on a couple of key baskets to cut it to 43-41 with 52 second to go. The Cougars had possession of the ball twice more with the chance to win in regulation, but a pair of turnovers allowed Rebel Amber Berendes a game-tying basket that would send it into overtime. An evenly played first overtime period sent the game into a second extra period. The Rebels outscored the Cougars 11-6 this time with the help of a pair of treys to take the five point win. “We need to do a better job of protecting leads,” Coach Gann said. “We felt like we had too many turnovers (24). We allowed their press to rattle us. We have to work on improving this area of our game.” Becca Wiarda led AGWSR with 14 points. Madi Frylie scored 11 points and came away with six steals. Alexa Johnson earned a double double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Taylor Risius dished out six assists and also came away with six steals.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck 60, AGWSR 55 Gladbrook-Reinbeck trailed 33-29 at halftime, but used a 16-0 second-half run to come from behind and win its sixth straight West Division game. AGWSR (10-5, 7-4) took its halftime lead largely on the strength of Austin Heitland’s 16-point first half. The 6-foot-5 post player scored 14 second-chance points on his way to a career-high 25-point effort. The Rebels tied the score 90 seconds into the second half on a Zach Pierce basket and took their first lead since early in the game a minute later on a Camden Kickbush breakaway basket. A Kickbush jumper followed by a Luke Holman 3-pointer extended the Rebel lead to 43-37. AGWSR went more than eight minutes without scoring, missing several open looks and watching several shots go halfway down the cylinder before popping back out. The Rebels’ largest lead of the night, 50-37, came one minute into the fourth quarter. Trailing by 13 with 3:20 left, AGWSR had one run left in it. It pulled within six, 56-50, on backto-back Nathan Karsjens baskets with 1:37 left and a Sully Hofmeister 3-pointer 16 seconds later made

it 56-53 game with 1:21 left. Gladbrook-Reinbeck missed the front end of a one-and-one free throw chance, giving the Cougars the chance to tie the game on a 3-pointer, but the Rebels forced a pair of turnovers in the final 30 seconds to seal the victory. Kickbush led the Rebels with 20 points while Pierce scored 14. Derek Schipper added 10 points for the Cougars.

Lynch earns 100th win at D-NH dual

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent DIKE – Levi Lynch earned the 100th win of his high school wrestling career with a 12-4 major decision over Teal Ludemann of Union at Dike-New Hartford’s home dual meet on Thursday. “This is a very nice accomplishment for him,” Dike-New Hartford head coach Tony Norton said. Lynch closed out last week with a record of 104-49 after another major decision on Thursday and three more wins at the Alburnett team duals on Saturday. As a team the Wolverines went 1-1 at the dual Thursday, bowing to a strong Union team 53-19 before regrouping to earn a 58-19 win over Aplington-Parkersburg. “Union has a very nice team this Dike-New Hartford senior Levi Lynch scores back points on the way to his 100th career win Thursday night year,” Norton said. “They are solid at the dual meet in Dike.

Rebels win double overtime thriller

R EINBECK — GladbrookReinbeck rallied from six points behind in the final three minutes of regulation and took the lead for good in the second overtime Friday on its way to an upset victory over AGWSR, capping a much-needed strong week. T he Rebels (6-8, 4-7 in the North Iowa Cedar League West) also downed BCLUW 44-39 last Tuesday. Gladbrook-Reinbeck 58, AGWSR 53. T he Rebels trailed 41-35 with three minutes left in regulation before rallying. They trimmed AGWSR’s lead to two with 1 minute, 9 seconds left on a Nicole Adair steal and breakaway, and tied the game 43-43 on an Amber Berendes basket with 34 seconds left. AGWSR was called for traveling twice and G-R was whistled for a charge in the final 30 seconds as both teams looked for the winning bucket. The Rebels fell behind by two twice in the first overtime only to see Adair score critical baskets. AGWSR had the ball with the chance for a game-winning shot before the Rebels drew a charging call that sent the game to a second extra period. E llie Stoakes gave the Rebels their first lead since the second quarter with an inbound basket and ensuing free throw 45 seconds into the second extra period, and the Rebels led the rest of the way. AGWSR pulled to within one on a pair of free throws only to see Adair answer with her fourth critical basket of the late going, and Hayley Weber hit a critical 3-pointer with 1:13 left. A pair of Hanna Christopher free throws with 18 seconds left sealed the win. Weber score 19 off the bench to

pace the Rebels while Adair scored 10. Becca Wiarda led AGWSR with 14 points.

Spartans suprise South Hardin D-NH

boys split key tests

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent GRUNDY CENTER – The Spartan girls avenged an earlier season loss to the South Hardin Tigers in an exciting 46-43 NICL-West division win at home Friday night. Earlier in the week the Lady Spartans lost for the second time this season to division leader South Tama, 55-35 at Tama. Grundy Center (9-7 overall, 5-6 NICL West) is scheduled to play East Marshall in a Coaches vs. Cancer game at home on Friday, Jan. 31. Grundy Center 46, South Hardin 43 Down by nine after the opening period, tough defense in the second quarter gave Grundy Center a one point advantage at the half, 28-27. Though defense on both sides made for a low scoring second half, the Spartans maintained their composure and made good on free throw opportunities down the final moments to come away with the three point win. “Our defense in the second half really did a great job of recognizing their shooters,” Spartan head coach Matt Lindeman said. “We really did a great job offensively, in taking good shots. Ally Jansen really stepped up big on offense and made some key free throws down the stretch. It was a great team win, and I’m really proud of the girls and how the finished the game under control and confident.” Jansen paced the Spartans with 20 points and Madison Beenken scored nine. Jes Ackerson led in assists with eight and steals with three. Katie Lindeman claimed eight rebounds. Kayla Prosser led the Tiger offense with 18 points.

South Tama 55, Grundy Center

Grundy Center took the early lead at South Tama Tuesday, 14-9 by the end of the first quarter, but the tide turned and it was all Trojans from there on out. The Spartans struggled on offense for the duration, allowing South Tama to outscore them 46 – 21 in the last three quarters to take the win by 20. The Trojans remain the

only undefeated team in NICL-West play at 9-0. “We started the game pretty well and shot really well in the first quarter,” Coach Lindeman said. “We struggled to get stops on defense, and did not shoot very well from the field as a team for the remaining three quarters.” “With four minutes to go in the game we decided to foul them and to try and get back into the game,” he said. “As a team they were shooting 51 percent in free throws for the season. They ended up shooting 83 percent in free throw shooting for the night. You have to give South Tama credit for getting the job done.” Katie Lindeman led Grundy Center with 16 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists. Jes Ackerson led in

steals with three. South Tama’s Tieranny Keahna led all scorers with 22 points, seven rebounds, and five blocked shots.

G-R boys rally past Cougars

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent ACKLEY – The AGWSR boys’ basketball dropped a pair of road games to the top teams in the NICLWest division this past week, falling to West Marshall 76-66 on Tuesday and Gladbrook-Reinbeck 61-55 Friday. AGWSR (10-5 overall, 7-4 NICL-West) was scheduled for three home games this week, hosting Aplington-Parkersburg on Tuesday, Jan. 28, Jesup on Thursday, Jan. 30, and South Tama on Friday, Jan. 31. West Marshall 76, AGWSR 66 At State Center on Tuesday AGWSR played West Marshall close in the first half, down by just four, 37-33, at the halfway mark. West Marshall spread the gap by opening the second half with a 17-0 run. The Cougars wouldn’t quit, cutting a 21 point deficit to seven during the fourth quarter, but the balanced scoring and accurate shooting by the Trojans kept the game out of the Cougar’s reach. “I thought we played pretty well during the first half,” AGWSR head coach Russ Banzhaf said. “West Marshall really shot the ball very well. I was hoping they wouldn’t keep it up, but unfortunately they did.” The Trojans shot 62 percent from the field, including 8-of-15 for 53 percent from three point range. Nathan Karsjens topped all scorers with 23 points. Austin Heitland scored 13 points and recorded six rebounds. Sully Hofmeister provided

10 assists. West Marshall’s Dunch Ferch matched Karsjens’ effort with 23 points for the Trojans. Matt Van Metre scored 16, Reggie Gradwell 15, and Trenton Keislar 13.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck 61, AGWSR 55 AGWSR controlled the early part of the game at Reinbeck Friday, building a 24-18 lead in the second quarter, and going to the halftime break up 33-29. Gladbrook-Reinbeck took advantage of an AGWSR scoring dry spell, going on a 17-0 run midway through the second half to claim a 13-point lead. Though the Cougars rallied back to make it a game late in the fourth, coming within three with 1:21 left on the clock, turnovers and free throw opportunities allowed G-R to pull away with the win. “Typical game with G-R, very physical, hard fought and down to See COUGARS page 12

DIKE — With two weeks left in the North Iowa Cedar League East Division boys’ basketball season the only thing decided is that much remains to be decided. That much was clear after DikeNew Harford split a pair of games that could have made it the clear-cut front runner. The Wolverines started strong, handing Jesup just its second loss of the year Tuesday, 55-50, but came up short Friday at Hudson, 67-57. The Wolverines (9-2 overall, 7-2 NICL East), Hudson and Jesup have two league losses each. Dike-New Hartford 55, Jesup 50 D-NH led by as many as 16 points in the first half before Jesup (11-2, 8-2) rallied. Byron Fritch hit four late free throws to clinch the victory. Jesup held D-NH senior Carson Parker, the division’s leading scorer with more than 25 points per game, to eight points on 3-of-8 shooting. Gabe Eiklenborg was the Wolverines’ top scorer with 10 points while Fritch scored nine and Cole Wildeboer also had eight. Trevor Larson led Jesup with 22 points.
