Man in custody after Lake Mills standoff Numerous law enforcement agencies were involved in a four-anda-half hour standoff in rural Lake Mills last Thursday, Jan. 30, after shots were fired at officers. The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office received a call shortly before noon on Thursday, reporting that a man was suicidal and had cut himself. Two officers responded to the residence at 4573 Apple Ave., east of Lake Mills, to assist Matthew Davis, 21. The sheriff’s office reports that Davis shot at the officers, who returned fire, took cover and called for back-up. Law enforcement officers from around the area responded to the scene. No more shots were fired, but there was a standoff for more than four hours until Davis walked out of

the house voluntarily. He was taken into custody and transported to Mercy Hospital North Iowa with apparently self-inflicted knife wounds. He was later released from the hospital and transported to the Worth County Jail. Davis is being held on charges of attempted murder, which is a Class B felony. Responding to the scene were the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office, Worth County Sheriff’s Office, Lake Mills Police Department, Manly Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, Department of Criminal Investigations, North Iowa Task Force Special Operations Group, Lake Mills Ambulance, Forest City Paramedic and Worth County Emergency Management.

Shoppers get ready for Valentine’s Day The second annual Valentine’s ‘Love is in the air’ Shopping Expo was held this past Saturday, Feb. 1 at the Heritage Town Center in Buffalo Center. Twenty-eight vendors attended the show, offering a variety of items ranging from jewelry, chocolate, fashion, dĂŠcor and much more. “There were several other events going on that day so we didn’t see

the larger crowd that we had hoped for, however, we thank everyone that was able to make for coming out and enjoying the day with us�, said Amber Shelton, North Iowa Youth Services co-founder and event organizer. “We hope to see this show continue in the future. It’s a fantastic fundraiser and a great opportunity for people to get out and enjoy the

day when the winter weather keeps us indoors.� In addition to the vendors, Grant Gleaners hosted a fundraiser lunch beginning with morning coffee, which kept the tables full. Proceeds from the expo will go toward the Buffalo Center Swimming Pool.

OPINION

:D\EDFNZKHQ

E\6HQDWRU'HQQLV*XWK ,RZD6HQDWH'LVWULFW GHQQLVJXWK#OHJLVLRZDJRY Propane prices have skyrocketed this month, going from the $1.50$1.80 range to $5 and even $6 per gallon. I first discovered what was happening when I called to fill a propane tank and discovered the price was $4.19. Wow! I quickly changed my order from “fill the tank,� to “just give me enough for three weeks.� This wild price swing stems from heavy usage in drying corn this fall, heating during COLD weather, an aging pipeline being taken out of service and transportation issues. The Governor has taken steps to ease the transportation problems, and suppliers are being asked to waive or reduce their minimum delivery requirement temporarily. I urge propane users to do as I did reduce their order to what is needed for the short term. This is not a shortage where we need to worry about running out of fuel. It is an issue of exploring ways to get available supplies to the areas needed. By postponing part of our immediate purchases, we will likely be able to purchase later at a lower price, AND we will be part of solving the shortterm problem. For people on heating assistance programs, there is enough money to get us through this spike and backfill at a later time. We can then assess the scope of the problem and proceed in an orderly fashion. I am glad to report the Governor’s Home Base program, which includes an exemption of state income tax on military pension, passed the Senate with a unanimous 46-0 vote. We are sending veterans a strong message that Iowa honors all who have served our country, and we want them to consider Iowa a great place to make their “Home Base.� School Administrators have requested we set allowable growth early so they can make their plans. They indicated they could live with either 4 percent or 6 percent growth,

and tell us to just get it done. Senate Republicans have agreed to push for next year’s figure to be set in the first 30 days with the following year to be set by the end of the session. Senate Democrats are asking for 6 percent supplemental aid. Republicans will not agree to 6 percent since it projects to a level of spending that would eliminate the state surplus within five years. I believe it would be more effective to set a reasonable rate from the start and not waste time bickering and grandstanding. Recently, a constituent visiting asked, “Does it really make a difference if a lot of people write their leg-

islators about an issue?� Yes, it can make a big difference when we hear what is on your mind. Sometimes we don’t know enough concerning an issue and it helps to hear from those who do. I appreciate constituents who take time to meet with legislators personally to develop a relationship. When you take the time to contact legislators, it shows you care and want to make a difference. A lot of legislation lives or dies on the basis of constituent involvement. You do make a difference! Thanks for the opportunity to serve you!

&DSLWRO+LJKOLJKWV %\5HSUHVHQWDWLYH7HGG*DVVPDQ ,RZD+RXVH'LVWULFW WHGGJDVVPDQ#OHJLVLRZDJRY There has been a great deal of discussion and lobbying about a fuel tax increase. A fuel tax increase would be constitutionally protected to be used for roads. There is a formula that breaks down where those funds would be spent. Some would go to cities, some to the county, and some to the state based on a fixed percentage. Many people like the idea of a fuel tax as it is a user fee. Those that use the roads pay for the construction and repair, along with snow removal. The problem with that thinking is it consistently gets more out of balance as more cars are using some kind of electric motors. I realize a new tax of this nature is not easy to accept. Those that drive a distance to work would have an additional burden. However our roads and bridges are in need of repair from the information that I have. Another aspect of the fuel tax is the concern of increasing taxes. If

we increase the fuel tax by 10 cents we would be one of the higher in the mid-west. A 10 cent increase is about a 50% increase in that tax. Governor Branstad is not an advocate of improving our roads and bridges strictly with a fuel tax. I write this column in hopes that some feedback will be forthcoming. I would like to see at least part of an increase from somewhere other than a fuel tax. What do you think? Another question as of late is the price of LP. There is a federal program known as LIHEAP. This is a Low Income Heating Program funded by the Federal Government. You can check into this program. As far as I know the program is fully funded.

Then we played a few games of Yahtzee and read the Buffalo Center Tribune. Thank you, Vonnie Bosma, for helping out at bingo. I will have to say we picked a good day to have our Penguin Party. To start out, we watched different stories about penguins on You Tube. During our party, we had a snow ball fight with wrapped up paper, a waddle race and guess how many fish are in the jar. For our lunch, we ate white cupcakes and snow cones. Thank you to everyone who helped out and dressed up. The residents really enjoyed the day. Friday, we exercised to At the Hop. Jo Meinders was the big winner today at Wii bowling; she scored a 178 in the first game and 152 in the second game. During both sensory groups, we read some stories and poems.

Items can be handmade, specially made or purchased for a special reason, and it would be helpful if the history behind the covering is written or explained when the loan happens. Examples of â&#x20AC;&#x153;coveringsâ&#x20AC;? would be bed quilts, baby quilts, afghans, horsehair blankets, lap blankets, hand stitched quilts, patchwork quilts or shawls.

Seventh grade boys drop final three matches The North Iowa seventh grade boys concluded the 2013 basketball season with three losses in the third week of December. The boys started the week on Monday, Dec. 16, with a rematch against Lake Mills, who had previously defeated the Bison 44-8. “This time we had our full complement of players, and it showed on the floor why that’s important,” said Coach Thomas Ullmann. “But even with all seven players, the boys fell 28-16.” Isaiah Walk shot 4/8 and tossed in a free throw to lead the team with nine points, as well as pulling down six rebounds. The second game of the week was another rematch, this time against North Union on Tuesday, Dec. 17. “The game was tight throughout – easily one of their best performances of the season,” said Ullmann. “Despite a 24-22 lead with 30 seconds

left, the boys’ inexperience in tight games showed, as we committed two costly fouls, while they were in the bonus, sending them to the free throw line where they sank three straight shots.” North Union won with a final score of 25-24. The Bison committed only four turnovers throughout the game. Logan Leesch recorded 11 points and 11 rebounds. The boys’ final game of the season came on Thursday, Dec. 19 against the Broncos at Belmond-Klemme. “A strong start kept the game close at the end of the first quarter with a score of 9-5, but it quickly blew open as their defense smothered our offense and forced 24 turnovers,” said Coach Ullmann. “Coupled with cold shooting, and the game got out of hand fast; the final score being 4412.” The seventh graders ended the season with a record of 1-11.

Bison pull out first conference win The Bison finally notched a win in the North Iowa Conference last week and came just short of another, as the conference season is quickly winding down. North Iowa opened the week by hosting Newman Catholic on Tuesday, Jan. 28, as the Bison pulled ahead in the second quarter and held on for a 55-52 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a welcomed sight to get through the first quarter with only a one point deficit,â&#x20AC;? said Bison Head Coach Chad Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our strongest quarters have been the second and third quarters recently, and tonight played true to form. We outscored Newman by six over those two quarters to take a lead into the fourth quarter. At one point in the second half, we had an opportunity to push the lead into double digits, but we suffered through an offensive lag, and Newman capitalized to pull even with us late in the fourth quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, we made 13 of 15 free throws in the fourth quarter to seal the game,â&#x20AC;? said Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taylor Ostermann made six, Trevor Aukes three, and Derek Yegge and Tate Corporon each made two free throws at crucial times to give us our first conference win on the season.â&#x20AC;? Dylan Voortmann led the Bison with 16 points, followed by Tate Corporon with 14. Corporon also made 13 rebounds and five blocks. North Iowa 9 12 15 19 55 Newman 10 7 14 21 52 The Bison came close to another win on Friday, Jan. 31, as they hosted Garner-Hayfield/Ventura. The boys worked their way back from a 17-9 first quarter deficit but came up short against the Cardinals, 55-53. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once again, a slow start ultimately sealed the outcome,â&#x20AC;? said Coach Hinders. The Bison kept pace with the Cardinals in the second quarter, but a four minute scoring drought in the third put them down by as much as 14 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A six point surge in the final minute of the third gave us confidence as we headed into the fourth quarter.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals scored the first basket of the final quarter before suffering through a six minute scoring drought of their own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to penetrate the seams of their zone

for a couple jumpers, and we also did a nice job of flashing to the high post and hitting a couple jumpers there,â&#x20AC;? said Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, they were able to hit five of six free throws down the stretch to maintain the lead. We had our chances to cut into the lead midway through the fourth, but we lost our discipline for a couple of possessions and did not take advantage of the situation. Taylor Ostermann hit a three pointer to pull within two, at 55 to 53, but we were out of timeouts, and the Cardinals just held the ball until the time ran off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was good to see us compete all the way to the final buzzer,â&#x20AC;? said Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kept trying and in the second half played better basketball offensively and defensively to be able to play with the Cardinals.â&#x20AC;? The Bison had three players score in the double figures, including Trevor Aukes with 17, Corporon with 15 and Taylor Ostermann with 10 points. Garner 17 10 21 7 55 North Iowa 9 10 18 16 53 It was a different story on Saturday, Feb. 1, as the Bison were outmatched in a much-delayed contest at Belmond-Klemme. The Broncos scored as many points in the first half as the Bison scored in the entire afternoon, as they won the match, 60-39. Coach Hinders notes that the Broncos defeated Forest City 86-65 the night before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;B-Kâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot shooting carried over from the previous night, as they tallied 25 points in the opening quarter,â&#x20AC;? said Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were never able to rebound from it, and combined with a five point offensive output coming out of the break, that sealed our fate. We know how well they are able to shoot the ball and that they are capable of hitting shots five feet beyond the arc. Our defense was slow to react and get out and get a hand in the face of their shooters. Court Christianson was perfect on all six of his shots he took from behind the arc and ended up with a game high 24 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did a good job of taking away the inside of our offense early, and we gave up looking at it fairly quickly,â&#x20AC;? said Hinders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not

The offensive flow was a click slow, allowing B-K to contest passes and shots.

We suffer through too many lost possessions because we are careless or force passes or shots that we could get later in the offensive sequence.â&#x20AC;? Aukes and Voortmann each scored eight points to lead the Bison offense for the night. Voortmann had six rebounds, followed by Corporon with five. Belmond 25 14 16 5 60 North Iowa 11 12 5 11 39
