By Rebecca Peter Ponytailsâ€Śpoodle skirtsâ€ŚT-shirts and black glassesâ€Ś The annual Buddyâ€™s Buddies show at Garner-Hayfield Elementary channeled the inner Buddy Holly and Peggy Sue in dozens of youngsters (and a few oldsters) last week. The Buddyâ€™s Buddies show has been a tradition at Garner-Hayfield since 2008. The program was held in conjunction with the 2014 Winter Dance Party at Clear Lake. Entertainers Richie Lee, Alan Clark and the Classics, rocked the gymnasium with music from the 1950â€™s and â€˜60s. The Garner-Hayfield/Ventura vocal jazz ensemble, Impulse, performed several selections, including a number with legendary guitarist Tommy Allsup. Youngsters (grade by grade) got to move in time to the music and try a few dance moves of their own in a happy but controlled chaos. â€œThese are magic glasses,â€? Des Moines entertainer Richie Lee, told the audience before launching into a rousing rendition of La Bamba. â€œI was about 7 when I won a Buddy Holly look-alike contest,â€? Lee said during a performance break. â€œFrom there I learned guitar.â€? Lee, 23, has performed the songs of the late Buddy Holly and other early rock â€˜n rollers for about 12 years. He also does a tribute
to singer Ritchie Valens who died with Holly and J.P. â€œthe Big Bopperâ€? Richardson in a plane crash near Clear Lake on Feb. 3, 1959. â€œ[Hollyâ€™s] music has always inspired me,â€? he said. â€œIt has a sound of its own. Heâ€™s the architect of rock â€˜n roll, you know.â€? This was Leeâ€™s second time at Garner. â€œWe enjoy it,â€? he said. â€œThe kids are having a good time. It makes it fun for the rest of us.â€? Elementary music teacher Rebecca Harper said she talked to students about the music of Holly, Valens and Richardson prior to the performance. â€œI discovered that a lot of them knew a lot about Buddy Holly, but I really wanted them to pick up a few facts about the other guys involved in this too,â€? Harper said. â€œItâ€™s really about the musicâ€Śnot just Buddy Holly. Itâ€™s a time in historyâ€Śand they reflected that in their music.â€? Harper agreed the music of that era crosses generations. â€œI just wanted them to move. Just watching them move no guidance on my part - itâ€™s definitely music that speaks to the ages,â€? she said. Fifth grader Brooklyn Funk found the music â€œvery interesting.â€? â€œIt makes you want to stand up and dance,â€? added Micheala Burke. That pretty much sums it up.
Agreement with Ventura senior citizens pending By Rebecca Peter VENTURA - A contract with the Ventura senior citizens group about use of the Ventura Community Center is pending approval from the Ventura Senior Citizens. The city council has been negotiating since last summer a contact with the group to clarify hours of usage of the facility by the seniors and their building responsibilities after use. The Ventura Community Center is the location for the daily Senior Congregate Meals and other activities by local seniors. The community center is also a popular venue for receptions and other com-
munity activities throughout the year. The contract will be on the agenda for February. City Administrator Position Ventura city officials discussed creating the position of city administrator and making the position of city clerk a binary role. City attorney John Sorensen will draft an ordinance for the new position of city administrator and have it available for review at the next council meeting. City Clerk Else Taylor presented a request from Cerro Gordo County for the Council to appoint a representative to the Cerro Gordo E911 Board and an alternate. The general consensus was to appoint council member Kristie Meints

ing for a lot of families.â€? â€œPeople look to our leaders in Washington for solutions. What they see is bitter partisanship and bickering.â€? Jacobs said his experience in the private sector has been that of bringing people together to solve problems. â€œIt starts with listening,â€? he stated. As CEO of Reliant Energy Jacobs found that he learned the most by speaking â€œdirectly to the front line of the operation - to the operators to the mechanics.â€? He said when he joined Reliant Energy in 2002, the company was on the verge of bankruptcy. â€œI know what it is to inherit a fiscal mess,â€? he said.

Jay East joins Wood Chiropractic Clinic
By Rebecca Peter GARNER - Jay East has joined Dr. Scott Wood, owner of Wood Chiropractic clinic, 232 State, Garner. East, the son of Steve and Jody East, is a 2005 graduate of Garner-Hayfield High School. He received his Associates Degree from North Iowa Area Community College and his Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science 2009 from the University of Northern Iowa. East earned his Chiropractic Degree from the Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, in 2013. He is completing his residency at Wood Chiropractic in anticipation of licensure this spring. â€œIâ€™ve always been interested in helping people without the use of drugs,â€? East said. â€œWhat we can do to be healthier without adding another prescription. I think that weâ€™re an overly medicated society. Weâ€™re helping people holistically.â€? â€œWe do adjustment, exercises, the Graston technique (soft tissue therapy) and ultra sound,â€? he continued. â€œI do manual adjusting but a lot of people like to use the [chiropractic] table for drop work.â€? â€œDepending on what the person wants or needs, we can cater to each person rather just one way of adjusting.â€? â€œWe help very young children, high school students, expectant mothers, and elderly,â€? he said. â€œIf your body is not running at an optimal level and chiropractic can address that.â€? Jayâ€™s interest in chiropractic started when he was a student at Garner-Hayfield. Jay says his education at Garner provided a solid foundation on which to build his future career. East also has an aunt, Dr. Jill Hartzell, who is a chiropractor at Waterloo. â€œI talked to [Scott Wood] and I talked to my aunt, and decided chiropractic is something Iâ€™d like to try,â€? he said. East and Wood â€œtalked about where he wanted to head with the clinic in the future, and if I could help,â€? Jay said. Jay is excited for the opportunity to begin his career in his hometown. â€œItâ€™s been exciting and challenging to be back,â€? he stated. â€œYou get to see people you know, either directly or indirectly, helped you to grow.â€? â€œWeâ€™re excited to have Jay,â€? said Scott Wood. â€œHe brings enthusiasm and a solid chiropractic foundation. It is always exciting when one of our young adults returns home to establish a career.â€? Hours at Wood Chiropractic Clinic are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 8 to noon Thursday and Saturday.

(DES MOINES) â€“ Rep. Henry Rayhons (R-Garner) hosted a Rosanne Malek, of Britt, a guest from his district this week at the Capitol. Rosanne came to support the fine arts and see Simon Estes sing in the House. (Submitted photo) VENTURA from page 1 Clerk Taylor will inquire with the city insurance carrier for their input on this matter. Mayor Tesar reported on the chamberâ€™s annual luncheon meeting that was held at the Ventura Community Center. Mayor Art Tesar said he welcomed the group and the event was a success. Other action by the Ventura City Council includes the following: â€˘Approved the Annual Financial Examination Report for FY2013 as prepared by Renner & Birchem. â€˘Approved a pay increase for City Clerk Else Taylor to $22 per hour, effective Jan. 1, 2014. GARNER from page 1 water treatment plant and Well #3. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources recommends the cityâ€™s public water supply have some means to provide auxiliary power in the event of loss of normal power. Veenstra & Kimmâ€™s proposal includes Design Services for a fee of $8,900. The preliminary estimate for the project is about $134,000. The council asked that Veenstra & Kimm draw up a set of spes for one or two generators. A public hearing and bid letting will be scheduled at a later date. The council reviewed a report from the Hancock County Fair Board on highlights of the 2013 county fair. The City of Garner annually contributes $500 to the fair, which helps to provide entertainment for the free stage. According to the report, attendance at the 2013 fair was up 21 percent. 2013 was the sixth consecutive year of double digit growth for the fair. Attendance at grandstand events was up 38 percent. Livestock numbers were up 38 percent. Projects completed in 2013 include more improvements to the new 3-season commercial building; additional grandstand seating; expanded the announcers tower and observation deck; and replacement of windows and doors to the horse arena tower. Other popular fair attractions included the petting zoo, carnival, ag museum, and open hog show. â€œWe have the most successful county
fair,â€? council member Deb Schmidt remarked. In other matters the city council approved urban revitalization tax abatement applications for Doug and Mindy Ralston, 385 Maben Ave. (new garage); Dan and Heather Lau, 390 E. 6th St. (add laundry room); and Gerald Pedersen, 1130 State (new garage). A beer and wine sales permit for Pronto Groceries and Gas was approved. JACOBS from page 1 Jacobs said he was able to build relationships and come up with a better solution than bankruptcy. Jacobs said the banks were â€œrepaid every penny we owed them in two years, and at the same we time protected thousands of jobs.â€? While Jacobs agreed with President Obamaâ€™s â€œstated aspiration of opportunity for all, the fact is when you look at the policies heâ€™s pursued in his administration are 180 degrees against that, â€œThe things heâ€™s doing are taking opportunities away from Americans and thatâ€™s totally wrong,â€? he said. â€œWe have 58.4 percent of people who have a job. That still 6 or 7 percent below where we were in 2006-2007,â€? he continued. â€œA lot of people have given up looking for a job altogether.â€? Jacobs said to restore job opportunities will take the following: â€˘Focus on education â€œIn particular community colleges and technical training. â€œThere are nation-wide 4 million unfilled jobs because employers cannot find people with the right skills. I think we should be supporting institutions that have that type of training and individuals who want to improvement themselves and get a better paying job.â€? â€˘Increase energy production. â€œWeâ€™ve seen tremendous job growth in the energy sector with development of shale formations and the development of renewable industry here in Iowa. We need to continue to do that because that can add thousands of jobs.â€? â€˘Tackling job-killing regulations on business. â€˘Implementing a competitive tax policy â€œto encourage investment in Ameri-

Jacobs said the Affordable Health Care Act has resulted in â€œreduced work hours, lost wages, higher employee contributions to employer offered plans and in some cases, the outright cancellation of insurance.â€? â€œAnd it does not attack the fundamental problem we have in health care which is the continued escalation of costs.â€? â€œI think we ought to be tackling at the provider level by bringing price transparency and consumer choice - free market principles,â€? he said. Minimum wage When asked about raising the minimum wage, Jacobs said, â€œI agree with Sen. Grassley this is something that we could look at, but I think the bigger problem is that it is another symptom for the problem weâ€™re having which is a lack of good jobs.â€? â€œWhat we ought to be doing is helping people to move beyond minimum wage jobs.â€? Farm Bill â€œItâ€™s important that we have a longterm farm bill,â€? he said. â€œThereâ€™s a tremendous amount of risk incurred by
ent risks in that business.â€? â€œIâ€™ve demonstrated as well that I can work with people who have different points of view by building relationships and listening,â€? he stated. â€œI think thatâ€™s what itâ€™s going to take to turn around

The pace of the legislative session is picking up with the third week under our belt. Committees are hard at work reviewing and discussing proposed legislation. We will soon begin to take up bills on the House floor that have passed out of a committee and I look forward to sending them to the Senate for their consideration. As we move forward this session, we will continue to focus on legislation that benefits ALL Iowans, rather than proposals that pit one group against another. We will work together in a bipartisan manner to pass laws that are in the best interest for our state. Unlike the President’s declaration to circumvent Congress and enact new policies on his own through Executive Order, we will instead concentrate on working across the aisle to find compromise on the important issues facing Iowans. We will continue to look for ways to return unused tax dollars to Iowans and to take less of your money from the beginning. We want to help those who already have too much of their paychecks taken from the government. To that extent, last year we offered a proposal to reform our income tax system which would give Iowans a choice when paying their income taxes. Under our proposal, each person would be able to choose to pay their income taxes under the current system or use a 4.5 percent flat tax with zero deductions. The bill is currently in the Senate and we look forward to further discussion. We will also work to increase educational opportunities for those seeking upward mobility. Over the last three years, the Legislature has increased our investment in Iowa’s community colleges by 22 percent. At a time when employers are expressing their concern about a lack of skilled workforce, Iowa’s community colleges are providing a tremendous level of job training to meet those needs. Conversations surrounding the mini-
mum wage have been taking place at the state and national level. It has been seven years since the last time Iowa raised the minimum wage, and discussion on the issue is reasonable. We need to have these conversations in order to learn how an increase will affect our businesses and communities. No one can deny that an increase in the minimum wage has a jobs penalty. While the extent of the jobs penalty is largely anecdotal, the Employment Policies Institute recently released a study that says Iowa would lose between 5,229 and 15,687 jobs if the minimum wage went to $10.10 per hour. We will continue to listen to the discussion surrounding this issue, while continuing to consider the impact it could have on our state. In other news, we were honored to receive a visit from Simon Estes. In conjunction with the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education Day on the Hill, Mr. Estes, along with the organization’s Executive Director Leon Kuehner and others from across Iowa, spent the day at the Capitol promoting the importance of fine arts in our state. We were blessed to have Mr. Estes begin our day by singing “God Bless America” during our opening prayer in the House. Following the prayer, the House passed House Resolution 103, a resolution celebrating the fine arts in Iowa’s schools and communities. Needless to say, it was wonderful to have Mr. Estes, a true Iowa treasure, grace us with his presence and beautiful voice. Moving forward, as previously mentioned, we are eager to pass legislation that will be helpful to all Iowans. I always appreciate hearing your ideas on how to improve our state. If you have any feedback or would like to raise a concern, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime at linda.upmeyer@ legis.iowa.gov or 515-281-4618. I look forward to hearing from you!
DES MOINES – Rep. Henry Rayhons (R-Garner) welcomed a family visiting the Capitol today. The Wackers, along with Alice Child, came in support of bill House Joint Resolution 11. Pictured here is Rep. Henry Rayhons, Micah Wacker, Esther Wacker, John Wacker, Rachel Wacker, Bethany Wacker, and Cindy Wacker all of Garner, and Alice Child of Clear Lake.
Bit, Pieces, & Decisions Week Three of the 85th General Assembly was a very full week of legislative action. It appears that a giant hurdle was jumped when the House Republicans and the Senate Democrats met with the Governor to go over his proposed budget. This usually occurs in the final days of the session, and while the specifics of the budget are still yet to be addressed, we are ahead of the game on the calendar. The committees on which I serve have been busy. Before any bill reaches the House floor it goes before a subcommittee of 3-5 legislators who discuss the merits and the downfalls. They then make a recommendation to the committee on how to proceed. The Natural Resources Committee, of which I am chair, has several bills pending that concern hunting and fishing as well as water clarity. We have also been informed on the progress of the Emerald Ash Borer in our state. This subject is particularly crucial since we will eventually lose thousands of ash trees in our state due to a small, seemingly harmless bug. And the monetary impact will be overwhelming; according to Paul Tauke, Forestry Bureau Chief, the cost will be in the millions as we remove those trees and replant for future generations. The Public Safety Committee has
State Representative Henry Rayhons House District 8 email@example.com / (641)430-2863 focused their efforts on tasers and their use by police and state troopers. This is a very public issue sparked by recent reports of tasers being used inappropriately and the lack of training being utilized. By far the most controversial bill so far however, in my opinion, has been the Gas Fuel Tax which passed out of Transportation sub-committee on Monday under the watchful eye of House/ Senate members, business owners, and the general public. While the increase in fuel tax has been debated in the past, the news from DOT Director Paul Trombino that the federal government will not be funding almost $430 million earmarked for the Iowa Road System budget, it has again come to the forefront. The last fuel tax increase was in 1989—almost 25 years ago. Without a raise in the gas tax, the losses to repair and maintain our road system will have to be made up through other means including possible increases in municipal bonds, the use of surplus funds or perhaps an increase in property taxes
to repair already neglected roads. It has been suggested that the fairest way to fund our road system repairs is to have those using the roads pay for them, including out of state drivers. Additional reports from those businesses using the roads to transfer goods from one site to another have indicated that the cost of fuel in the long run for them would be less expensive than the constant repairs and increase in driving time now required due to unfit and, in some cases, unsafe roads and the time spent avoiding them. This is going to be a difficult decision for everyone involved since it will impact not only our own personal pocketbooks but our safety, the financial impact and potential loss of revenue from those doing business in our state, and the potential loss of jobs for DOT employees. I continue to encourage you to contact me if you have any issues or concerns. Be sure to include your name and address with any communications to my office. firstname.lastname@example.org
Regarding the price of propane 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 short-term problem. For people on heating assistance programs, there is enough money to get us through this spike and backfill at a later time. We
The View from Here by Dennis Guth
Iowa State Senator District 4 email@example.com • 641-430-0424 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 legislators 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! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 641-430-0424.

such as congestive heart failure should follow more stringent sodium restrictions of less than 1500 milligrams. Recommendations regarding physical activity were also updated. The American Heart Association recommends at least 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise 3 to 4 times weekly. An example of appropriate exercise would be a brisk walk. Healthcare providers have updated risk factor tools used to assess patients personal risks for heart disease and stroke. These set the stage for discussion between patients and their medical provider and help to create individual plans to impact heart and vascular health. There will also be changes in treating cholesterol. More focus will be placed on an individual’s risk factors and less focus on the LDL or “bad cholesterol” number value. Statin medications will still be the mainstay of treatment as research indicates this group of medications to have significant effects in both primary and secondary prevention of heart and cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association has made the treatment of hypertension a major focus area in its strategic plan intended to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans. Most patients need to follow goal blood pressures of values less than or equal to 140/90, however, for some patients with heart failure, diabetes, or chronic kidney diseases, goals may be lower. Recommendations have been updated regarding each class of blood pressure medication, and the patients that would most benefit from their use.

QUESTION: What’s my risk for heart disease? ANSWER by: Julie Larson, ARNP, providing treatment and care for the whole family in the Britt Medical Clinic. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in the United States. 80 million Americans have some form of heart disease – this equals approximately 1 in 3 adults. Each year, 2 million Americans have a heart attack or stroke. Knowing your risk factors can help you to make changes that will help decrease your risk. Risk factors for heart disease are: family history, obesity, unhealthy diet, diabetes, smoking, lack of physical activity, advancing age, and poorly managed stress. Many of these risk factors can be modified. I highly recommend discussing your individual risk factors with your medical provider and developing a plan to decrease them. In November 2013, the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology released new guidelines from research studies published between the years 1990 through 2012, to help medical providers manage cardiovascular risk factors. These guidelines emphasize healthy lifestyle to prevent heart disease. They focused on heart healthy diet, physical activity, management of blood pressure and cholesterol, and treatment of obesity. In my practice, many patients have questions regarding diet and weight loss. The American Heart Association encourages a diet low in saturated fats and high in fiber, 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables, lean meat (limiting red meat), low fat milk products, nuts, and limiting sweets and sugars in the diet. Daily sodium intake was also a focus in the new guidelines with recommendations to limit total sodium intake to 2400 milligrams. However, adults who need larger reductions in blood pressure, or who suffer from conditions

PEOPLE & EVENTS
Garner NEW MATERIALS â€“ Fiction Continued from last wee Kramer, Julie; Delivering Death The most appealing mystery heroine since Janet Evanovichâ€™s Stephanie Plum, TV reporter Riley Spartz is a star investigative journalist for Channel 3 â€”and no stranger to the seedier side of her hometown. But when she receives a package of human teeth in the mail at work, sheâ€™s quickly embroiled in a homicide investigation that spirals into one of the odder cases the Minneapolis police force has ever seen. Though the cops try to keep certain grisly details quiet, this murder has a strange twistâ€”it seems that the killer wants the crime publicized. Lucado, Max; The Christmas Candle - This year, Edward Haddington, a lowly candle maker, is visited by a mysterious angel. That angel silently imparts a precious giftâ€”a gift thatâ€™s bungled and subsequently lost. The candle maker and his wife, Bea, struggle to find the gift. And when they do, they have to make a difficult choice. Who among their community is most in need of a Christmas miracle? Ludlum, Robert; The Utopia Experiment - With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the president has been forced to establish his own clandestine group-Covert-One. Itâ€™s activated only as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out. THE UTOPIA EXPERIMENT When Dresner Industries unveils the Merge, a device that is destined to revolutionize the world and make the personal computer and smartphone obsolete, Covert-One operative Colonel Jon Smith is assigned to assess its military potential. He discovers that enhanced vision, real-time battlefield displays, unbreakable security, and near-perfect marksmanship are only the beginning of a technology that will change the face of warfare forever--and one that must be kept out of the hands of Americaâ€™s enemies at all costs. Shreve, Anita; Stella Bain - When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in an exclusive garden in London, surgeon August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in. A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge quickly develops a clinical interest in his houseguest. Stella had been working as a nurseâ€™s aide near the front, but she canâ€™t remember anything prior to four months earlier when she was found wounded on a French battlefield. In a narrative that takes us from London to America and back again, Shreve has created an engrossing and wrenching tale about love and the meaning of memory, set against the haunting backdrop of a war that destroyed an entire generation. Tartt, Donna; The Goldfinch - It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a thirteen-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who donâ€™t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that 'RQÂśWVLWKRPHDORQH &RPHVSHQGWKHZLQWHU DQGKDYHDFXSRIFRFRD LQRXUFRIIHHEDU

ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love-and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. Taylor, Patrick; Fingal Oâ€™Reilly - Fans of Taylorâ€™s bestselling Irish Country novels know Dr. Fingal Flahertie Oâ€™Reilly as the irascible senior partner of a general practice in the colorful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Newly married to his once long-lost sweetheart, heâ€™s ready to settle into domestic bliss, but thereâ€™s always something requiring his attention, be it a riding accident, a difficult patient with a worrisome heart condition, a spot of grouse-hunting, or even some tricky shenanigans at the local dog races. The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier, when fresh out of medical school, the young Dr. Oâ€™Reilly accepts a post at the Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublinâ€™s tenement slums. Yet even as he tries to make a difference, Fingalâ€™s tireless devotion to his patients may cost him his own true love. Woods, Stuart; Standup Guy Stone Barringtonâ€™s newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusualâ€”and potentially lucrativeâ€”dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but itâ€™s soon clear Stone hasnâ€™t seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentlemanâ€™s activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime . . . and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
5 p.m. Mass
You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, â€œThe Lord is my refuge,â€? and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

Catholic youth participate in 2014 March for Life Youth from the Archangels Catholic Cluster participated in the pilgrimage to the 2014 March for Life in Washington D.C. Participants were Fr. Paul Lippstock; St Boniface, Garner: Allison Bell, Riannan Kadrlik, Rachel Weaver, Trevor Rayhons, Parker Schneiders, Justine Heljik, Melany Hejlik of St. Boniface, Garner; Reagan Reece, Mary Beth Anzivino-Barnes of St. James Catholic, Forest City; and Regina Adams, St. Patrick Catholic, Lake Milles. The group was a part of a caravan of six busses arranged by the Dubuque Country Right to Life. Young people from Beckman Catholic School in Dyersville, Loras College, Dubuque, University of Wisconsin, Platteville, and additional schools filled the other busses. The caravan encountered a number of difficulties. A snow storm on the journey to Washington, D.C. on Monday, Jan 20, forced the group to park at a shopping mall overnight in West Peoria, where they all slept on the buses. The trip resumed after 6+ hours. Student observation and comments about the experience included the following: â€˘The delay threw us all off schedule, but everyone adjusted well, trusting that God is in control. â€˘All the trials taught us that we must be patient and trust in Him. â€˘We prayed a lot while on the bus, especially extra Rosaries, asking the

Ashton Wolf by Tierra Luppen
A fun fact about Ashton Wolf is that she is a huge bookworm. Ashton, the daughter of Bonnie Wolf and Joseph Wolf, was born Sept. 2, 1995. She has two sisters, Kaylie Anderson and Jailynn Wolf, and has three cats and one dog. Ashtonâ€™s favorite quote is â€œYou canâ€™t start the next chapter of your life if you keep rereading the last one.â€? Some of Ashtonâ€™s favorites include the book Divergent, the television show Rules of Engagement, the music group Pentatonix, Pitch Perfect, purple, advanced chemistry class, snakes and all bookstores. Her favorite sports team is the North Iowa Bulls, and her celebrity crush is Chad Michael Murray. The number one thing on Ashtonâ€™s bucket list is to visit Europe before she turns thirty. Her biggest pet peeve is when people chew on their hair, and her nervous habit is chipping off her fingernail polish. Her hobbies include reading, drawing, playing soccer and writing. One of her favorite childhood memories is going to her grandparentsâ€™ and getting to drive the truck. The best advice Ashton has received this year is to stay motivated because it will make the time go by faster. Her favorite high school memory is making the first soccer goal by a girl for the schoolâ€™s first co-ed soccer team. During high school Aston has been involved in concert and marching band, vocal, soccer and volleyball, and she tried out for All-State vocal. Her proudest high school achievement is trying out for the musical last year. What she will miss the most about high school are her teachers. Ashton advises underclassmen to try to make the most of their high school years because they go by fast and opportunities to get involved are everywhere. After graduation she plans to attend Iowa Central or DMACC to study criminal justice.
Joel Toppin by Jacob Heinemann
Getting a pet panda is the number one thing on Joel Toppinâ€™s bucket list. Joel, the son of Gene and Dana Toppin, was born on Dec. 18, 1995. Joel has an older sister, Andrea (who is his role model because of how successful she has been with her college running at Iowa State University and how awesome she has been as an older sister), and a pet bunny, Cuddles. Joelâ€™s favorite childhood memory was going on vacation to Colorado with his family. Some of Joelâ€™s favorites include watching ESPN every day (and the celebrity he thinks he most looks like, Stuart Scott) as well as the movie Up, listening to the music group Rend Collective Experiment and shopping at any Nike Outlet store. His favorite sports team is the Boston Celtics, and, in turn, he loves to hate their rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers. He also like the book Toughness by Jay Bilas, grilled chicken, French vanilla ice cream, the color blue, pandas and psychology class, and he has a celebrity crush on Rachel McAdams. â€œHaving faith often means doing what others see as crazy. Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelieversâ€? by Francis Chan is Joelâ€™s favorite quote. A fun fact about Joel is he has ptosis, which is another word for having a very heavy eyelid, in his left eye. If he could change one thing about himself, he would have been completely ambidextrous. His biggest peeve is when people try to talk to him when he has headphones in his ear, and his nervous habit is biting the collar of his shirt. If Joel could walk in someone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, it would be NBA player Stephen Curryâ€™s to see what it would be like to be a professional basketball player. Joelâ€™s hobby is looking for unique smoothie and oatmeal recipes to try out. During high school, Joel has been involved in basketball, cross country, track and field, National Honor Society, band, Random Acts of Coolness (RAOC), Teen Council, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and leading the Doulos youth group. Joel will miss his peers and coaches the most after high school. Joelâ€™s favorite part of his senior year has been being able to enjoy one last year with all his classmates. His favorite memory of high school is running the 3200-meter down at Drake for state track. He is most proud of achieving his state track medals. The best advice Joel has given this year is â€œDonâ€™t dwell on your failures; instead, envision your success.â€? Joel plans to attend a four-year college to major in prepharmacy. He also plans to run in college and canâ€™t wait to meet new people. He advises underclassmen, â€œDare to be different. Donâ€™t follow the crowd; make your own.â€?
Matt Schroeder SENIOR SPOTLIGHT by Mikah Millard
Courtney Younge by Theodore Zrostlik
The number one thing on Courtney Youngeâ€™s bucket list is to win nationals in a cow show. Courtney was born Feb. 17, 1996, to her parents Marcus and Robin Younge. Her younger sister Sydney later joined her, and she also has a dog, Milley. Courtneyâ€™s role model is her dad because he is a leader and a businessman and is very hardworking. Some of Courtneyâ€™s favorites include Divergent, Blacklist, The Notebook, hot dogs, cows, intro to biology, chocolate ice cream and the color green. Courtneyâ€™s favorite sports team is the Iowa Hawkeyes, and her favorite team to hate is the Iowa State Cyclones. Courtneyâ€™s hobbies include volleyball, basketball, cattle showing and hanging out with friends. Playing with Barbies with her sister and Emily Spilman is Courtneyâ€™s favorite childhood memory. If Courtney could walk in anyone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, she would choose Micah Hancockâ€™s to see what it takes to be the best setter in the nation. If Courtney could change anything about herself, she would make it so she was better at not procrastinating. Her nervous habit is biting her nails, and her biggest pet peeve is when her sister doesnâ€™t do chores. In high school Courtney has been involved in volleyball, basketball, track, NHS, FCCLA, Student Council, RAOC, YIELD, FFA and 4H. Courtneyâ€™s favorite high school memory is winning the Forest City game in five to go to the regional final this year. The achievement that Courtney is most proud of is being named first team All-Conference in volleyball. Courtney will miss being with her friends and knowing everyone the most about high school. The best advice she has received this year is to make the most out of high school, and her advice to underclassmen is the same. She adds that being involved and making friends are very important as well. Courtney plans on attending Drake University and attaining a health or pharmacy degree. She looks forward to being independent.
Adrian Arnold by Ashton Wolf
Being part of the Homecoming court and having the parade on his birthday are some of A.J. Arnoldâ€™s favorite parts of his senior year. Adrian (A.J.), the son of Tami and Steve Eastman and Brian and Edie Arnold, was born on Oct. 4, 1995. A fun fact about A.J. is he can ride his bike with no hands. A.J.â€™s favorites include the Bible, the television show How I Met Your Mother, Star Wars: Episode IV, the music group Bastille, the Pittsburgh Penguins, BBQ ribs, Orange Leaf, the color blue, Superman ice cream, celebrity Colbie Caillat, economics class and this quote from PokĂŠmon: â€œI wanna be the very best like no one ever was.â€? A.J.â€™s role model is Mr. Rogers because he is a nice and really cool guy. If A.J. could walk in someone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, he would choose Morgan Freemanâ€™s so he could listen to his own voice. Some of A.J.â€™s hobbies include video games, running, playing the harmonica, skateboarding, surfing the web and eating. A.J.â€™s number one thing on his bucket list is to kill a bear with his bare hands (pun intended). The biggest pet peeve for A.J. is when people snap to get his attention. When A.J. gets nervous, he has the bad habit of chewing his fingernails. During high school A.J. has been involved in cross country, wrestling, track, soccer, CRAVE, Sojourn, Teen Council and FCA. A.J.â€™s proudest achievement in high school is being on the Homecoming court. Co-hosting the first Garner-Hayfield/Ventura variety show with Jimmy Legge is one of A.J.â€™s favorite high school memories. After high school A.J. plans to attend college. One thing he is looking forward to after high school is a lot free time. A.J. will miss seeing his friends when he leaves for college.
Being more independent is just one of the many things Matt Schroeder is looking forward to after high school. Matthew Robert Schroeder, born on Aug. 16, 1995, is the son of Fred and Lisa Schroeder. Growing up, Mattâ€™s favorite memory was playing GameCube with James and Joseph Ermer at their babysitterâ€™s house. When he isnâ€™t in school, Matt enjoys spending his free time golfing, reading, traveling and playing video games with his friends. Some of Mattâ€™s favorites include the TV series The League, the movie Caddyshack, the book The Lincoln Lawyer, the Zac Brown Band, pugs, cotton candy-flavored ice cream, the color yellow, celebrity Rose Byrne and shopping on TGW.com. Mattâ€™s favorite team is the Green Bay Packers, and he loves to hate the Seattle Seahawks. â€œPray continuallyâ€? from 1 Thessalonians 5:17 is his favorite quote, and his favorite song is â€œCarpe Diemâ€? by Green Day. Mattâ€™s greatest role model is Jesus because Heâ€™s perfect, and if Matt could change one thing about himself, he wishes that he himself could be a better a role model. Mattâ€™s biggest pet peeve is when people donâ€™t try their hardest, and, like many, Matt has some peculiar quirks. He only eats cereal without milk, and he tends to bite his nails when heâ€™s nervous. Matt has participated in drama, chorus, jazz band, marching band, concert band, golf, baseball, cross country, National Honor Society, Student Council, Teen Council and FFA. After graduating, Matt plans to get a bachelorâ€™s degree in accounting at either Buena Vista or AIB and play golf at the collegiate level. Looking back, Matt is most proud of placing fourth individually and second as a team his junior year at conference golf. His favorite class was American history with Mr. Knipfel, and his favorite high school memory is state mock trial his freshman year with Ted, Michael, Caleb and A.J. Mattâ€™s advice to underclassmen is â€œTalk with your teachers outside of class. You can learn a lot more than the curriculum.â€?
October Anderson By Olivia Hackbarth
Making the A or B honor roll every quarter each year of high school is the high school achievement of which October Anderson is most proud. October Bliss Anderson is the daughter of Robin and Mark Anderson. She was born on Oct. 27, 1995, and has an older brother, Jacobey. Her favorite childhood memory is camping in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Some fun facts about October are that she hates the smell of green apple and she has owned pet ferrets. Some of Octoberâ€™s favorites include the color orange, baby harp seals, Chinese food, Hamburger Helper, shopping at Deb, the book The Outsiders, the TV series Jersey Shore, the music group Macklemore and any course that Mr. V. teaches. Her favorite quote is â€œEarly to rise, early to bed makes a man healthy but socially dead,â€? and Seth Rogen and Travie McCoy are her celebrity crushes. Publishing a successful book is the number one thing on Octoberâ€™s bucket list. Her hobbies include working at Billâ€™s after school, being with her friends, shopping and collecting My Little Pony figures. If she could change one thing about herself, she would break the habit of leaving her dirty clothes to pile up in her room. Octoberâ€™s biggest pet peeves are when people â€œforgetâ€? to put on deodorant or brush their teeth and when people who watch movies with her try to repeat whatâ€™s being said but have no idea, so they mumble through the scene. Reciting lines drives her crazy! When October meets someone new, she has the nervous habit of being uncomfortably quiet for fear of stuttering or putting her foot in her mouth. Octoberâ€™s favorite part about her senior year has been a tie between turning eighteen and getting an extended curfew, getting her full license and getting her beautiful tattoo. Though October is looking forward to getting her own place after high school, she says she will miss the social part about high school the most. â€œLiving at home and being a student is easy. Life after graduation only gets harder,â€? she says. Her advice to underclassmen is that late assignments bring down your grade quicker than bad test scores. If you complete assignments on time, you can still maintain a B grade. Octoberâ€™s plans after high school are to work full-time to continue to save money and decide on college when she is more focused on education.
Spotlight on Teen Council by Whitney Watson
Teen Council, part of the Garner Asset Project, was created to allow a group of students to try to prevent and reduce underage drinking and illegal substance abuse throughout the entire student body and community. Members meet monthly to organize activities and discuss additional information relating to trends of drinking and substance abuse. Sandy Rayhons, Garner Asset Project coordinator and Teen Council adviser, stated, â€œTeen Council provides a vital force to the prevention community and promotes involvement and participation through school activities and community events.â€? Teen Council was started in 2004 for a group of 20-25 high school students. To become a member, students have to go through an application process that asks questions about why they want to be a member and why they want to reduce underage drinking and drug use in the community. Current Teen Council members review the applications and vote on new membership. Laura Welsh, Teen Council member, added, â€œI think Teen Council is beneficial to students because it helps them to be-
come more aware about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.â€? Activities conducted by Teen Council include promoting Safe Homes, popcorn bag stickers, overtime events, medical marijuana presentation, posters and participating in Red Ribbon Week. On Feb. 26 a couple of members will go to the state capitol to participate in the Day on the Hill. Members will talk to legislators about legalizing marijuana and the social host ordinance. Each person in Teen Council takes on responsibilities to make these various activities successful. All members of Teen Council have an important leadership role in the school and community. Members have to be a positive role model and work to influence students and the community to stand against underage drinking and substance abuse. Teen Council has been instrumental in passing laws statewide to help combat underage drinking and continues to work to reduce underage drinking and substance abuse.

GHV Girls Continue to Roll
With the completion of regular season play gradually drawing nearer, the Garner-Hayfield girlsâ€™ basketball team appears to be gearing up for tournament action. The Cards added three more wins to their record last week, including a critical victory against Osage on Tuesday. That win put GHV solidly on top of the North Iowa Conference standings and if the Cardinals can win out they will earn the league title. Tuesdayâ€™s game with the Green Devils was important for several reasons. A loss at Osage before Christmas was GHVâ€™s lone blemish on the their NIC record meaning the Cardinals needed to beat the Green Devils this time around to preserve any hopes for a conference title. That December loss was also costly since the IGHSAU decided to send GHV to Osage for tournament play rather than keep the Cards at home. GHV is hoping to make another deep run into the tournaments and Osage will be the first obstacle to that goal. GHVâ€™s slow start on Tuesday made Cardinal fans a little nervous as Osage controlled the first quarter to lead 19 â€“ 8. The Cards were able to chip into the lead during the second period and close the gap to 23 â€“ 20 by halftime. Osage appeared to hold off the Cardinal rally in the third quarter, taking a 35 â€“ 30 lead into the final period. The Green Devils maintained their edge through most of the fourth quarter only to see the Cardinals rally in the
closing minutes for a 43 â€“ 39 win. Balanced scoring has been critical to the Cardinalsâ€™ recent success and that trend continued against Osage. Emily Spilman led GHV in the scorebook with 11 points and four steals followed by Hannah Lau with10 points and five rebounds. Maddie Tusha finished with eight points, seven rebounds, seven assists and four steals while Shelby Rayhons scored seven points. Mackenzie Van Gerpen and Bri Bier completed the scoring total with four and three points respectively. Cardinal coach Matt Erpelding commented, â€œWe didnâ€™t get off to a good start in this one. We had seven first quarter turnovers that led to 13 of their 19 first quarter points. They only had two points off our next 18 turnovers. We made some defensive adjustments at the end of the quarter and battled our way back into the game with an outstanding second quarter of defense. The second half was a very tight battle throughout as they were able to stretch the lead to five heading into the final quarter. My girls dug deep and had another great quarter of defense again holding them to only four points. Trailing by one with less than two minutes to play our full court defense forced a turnover that we converted for a basket while picking up a fifth foul on their outstanding post player Jadee Walsh. We had an outstanding offensive possession in which we ran a lot of time off of the clock and Bri and Emily knocked down some huge
free throws to help us pull out the tremendous win. This was an outstanding effort from my girls. After falling behind big in the first quarter we never lost our composure but rather stayed focused and locked down defensively. Nothing was easy offensively as they are a very good defensive team as well. We just continued to battle and wait for them to break down and give us an opportunity to score. Obviously this is a big win in the battle for a conference championship. More importantly it sets up a very interesting matchup as we play them at their place in the first round of the tournaments.â€? North Iowa has been a difficult place for the Cardinals in recent years so GHV fans were no doubt a little apprehensive about the trip to Buffalo Center. The Cards used a strong defensive effort early in the game to take build a 14 â€“ 5 lead over their hosts after one quarter of play. GHV held the Bison to single digits again in the second quarter as the Cardinals extended their advantage to 27 â€“ 11 by halftime. The Cards continued to control the tempo of the game through the third quarter and put the game away with a 42 â€“ 19 lead going into the final quarter. The bench saw plenty of action in the final period and GHV won by a score of 57 â€“ 32. Emily Spilmanâ€™s 14 points led another balanced offensive attack by the Cardinals. Maddie Tusha followed with seven points and Bri Bier chipped in six points with five assists. Mackenzie Haag, Mackenzie Van Gerpen and Sydney Younge scored six points apiece while Hannah Lau added four points with seven rebounds. Rounding out the individual leaders for GHV were Grace Tusha with five rebounds and four points along with Shelby Rayhons and Tiara Van Gerpen with two points apiece. â€œFor the first time in several games we had a solid first quarter on both ends of the floor,â€? remarked Coach Erpelding. â€œOur defense stepped up from the opening tip and our offense executed for quality shots. We executed our press break very well leading to some easy baskets. Another focal point for us heading into this game was our third quarter performance on the defensive end. We did a much better job on that as well as we held them to eight points and stretched the lead to 23. We did a solid job on the boards coming away with 17 offensive rebounds and out rebounding them by 14. The one disappointing area of the

Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014 â€˘ The
GHV Wrestlers Sweep at Belmond Action has been limited for the GHV wrestling team in recent weeks due to a number of weather related cancellations. The Cardinals were finally able to get back on the mat last week in dual competition as GHV traveled to Belmond for a quadrangular against the Broncos, West Fork and NorthwoodKensett. It was a good night for the Cards as GHV topped all three opponents in duals that were not very close. In the first action of the night, the Cardinals scored in the first eight matches on the way to a 45 â€“ 0 lead. GHV gained five forfeits in that stretch while also scoring pins from Dalton Basinger at 138 pounds and Brady Baker at 170 pounds along with a decision from Connor Shaw at 160 pounds. Andrew Dornbierâ€™s decision at 120 pounds completed the Cardinal scoring. The Cardinals cruised to a lopsided win over West Fork in their second dual of the evening. The Cards scored six pins against the Warhawks while adding points on two decisions and three forfeits. West Fork benefitted from two forfeits by GHV and did manage to score a pin. Picking up falls for the Cardinals were Connor Shaw (152 pounds), Cade Baker (160 pounds), Tucker Datema (170 pounds), Nic Tusha (220 pounds), Allan Devora (285 pounds) and Andrew Dornbier (120 pounds). Connor Smith and A.J. Arnold added decisions to the scoreboard at 182 and 132 pounds respectively. GHV won nine matches in the final dual of the evening on the way to a 48 â€“ 22 victory over Northwood-Kensett.
Colby Reidâ€™s pin at 145 pounds got the Cards rolling as Connor Shaw, Cade Baker and Tucker Datema all followed suit at 152 pounds, 160 pounds and 170 pounds respectively. Connor Smithâ€™s decision at 182 pounds gave GHV a 27 â€“ 0 lead. A forfeit at 195 pounds put Northwood on the board but Nic Tusha followed with a pin at 220 pounds to maintain the 27-point lead. GHV went on to win three of the next five matches as Austin Case and Austin Oborny earned pins at 106 and 126 points. A.J. Arnoldâ€™s decision at 132 pounds completed the Cardinal scoring for the night. Cardinal coach Steve Smith was pleased with the effort of the squad at Belmond saying, â€œWe wrestled very well on Tuesday to pick up the three dual wins.â€? GHV traveled to Lake Mills on Saturday to compete in the North Iowa Conference tournament. Details from that action appear in a separate story in the Leader Sports section.

Cards Place Sixth at NIC Wrestling Tourney
GHV traveled to Lake Mills on Saturday hoping to place among the top four teams at the North Iowa Conference wrestling tournament. The Cardinals have been competitive against NIC teams in dual matches this season, but Saturdayâ€™s tournament proved to be a bit disappointing for GHV wrestlers, coaches and fans. As usual, Osage ran away from the field in the team standings on the way to a championship with 251.5 points. Forest City was a distant second at 199.5 points followed by Lake Mills (158.5) and Belmond (106.5). Newman placed fifth with 102 points while the Cardinals were sixth with 94. At the bottom of the list was West Hancock with 84.5 points. Nic Tusha was GHVâ€™s highest indi-

vidual finisher on the day. The senior 220-pounder advanced to the finals where he lost that match and had to settle for second place. Tusha opened the day with a bye and then advanced to the finals with a pin. The Cardinals had two individuals finish the day in third place overall. After losing his semifinal match, Connor Shaw scored a pin and a decision at 152 pounds to place third. Connor Smith also ended his day on a positive note after losing his semifinal match at 182 pounds. A third round bye and a consolation final decision led to Smithâ€™s third place finish. Three additional Cardinals added falls to their individual records throughout the day. Austin Case picked up a first period pin in his last match at 106 pounds. A.J. Arnold also scored a pin in his final match of the day at 132 pounds while Dalton Basinger scored a fall in his first match of the day at 138 pounds. Cardinal coach Steve Smith stated, â€œI felt that we suffered a little bit of a letdown on Saturday and did not compete to the best of our ability.

Cardinal Boys Top North Iowa
GHV basketball fans were hoping to see their Cardinal boysâ€™ team bounce back after last weekâ€™s disappointing stretch, but Tuesdayâ€™s game against Osage only added to the frustration. The Cards finally got back into the win column at North Iowa on Friday but that happiness was short-lived as Garrigan topped GHV on Saturday. The Cardinals wanted to get out of the gates quickly against Osage on Tuesday in order to build some confidence, but the Green Devils proved to be ready as they jumped ahead 19 â€“ 12 heading into the second quarter. Osage appeared to put the game away in the second quarter after pushing the lead to 28 â€“ 14 midway through the period, but GHV chipped away at the deficit through the final minutes of the half and closed the gap to 30 â€“ 25. The Cardinals opened the third quarter with a bucket to make it a three-point game leading to an exciting second half of basketball. Osage maintained their edge to lead 49 â€“ 42 going into the final period and the Cardinals had one more surge left before the night was through. GHV got to within two points at 57 â€“ 55 midway through the fourth quarter but Osage scored their final 14 points of the night at the free throw line to preserve a 71 â€“ 62 win. Braden Meints scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead GHV on the night. Joel Toppin followed with 13 points and Jake Wolf chipped in nine points with seven rebounds. Spencer Shaw scored eight points with five assists while Holden Hutcheson also net-
ted eight. Harley Forryâ€™s two-pointer completed GHVâ€™s scoring. Cardinal coach Joe Albertson commented, â€œWe knew Osage had weapons that needed to be accounted for, but our worst enemy was probably ourselves. Losing games has had an effect on our confidence and that in turn has affected our execution. Our goal was to find a way to play with more poise and enthusiasm, but Osage made that difficult by opening up a 14-point lead late in the first half. However, we rallied and cut it to five by halftime behind Braden Meintsâ€™ aggressive play. Osage was playing well and getting scoring from many players on their team, but we made another run at them late in the fourth and cut it to two points. Joel Toppin really stepped it up in the fourth quarter to put us in a position to pull off a win, but turnovers and a failure to get stops cost us the game.â€? GHV was badly in need of a conference win and Fridayâ€™s trip to North Iowa appeared to be a good opportunity for the Cards. North Iowa entered the game with only one league victory so the Bison appeared to be very vulnerable. The early minutes of the game went as planned for the Cardinals as GHV surged ahead 17 â€“ 9 after the first quarter. The two teams played even through the second period and GHV was comfortable with a 27 â€“ 19 lead at halftime. The Cardinal advantage grew to 14 points midway through the third quarter and GHV looked to on the road to an easy win, but North Iowa found
West Hancockâ€™s Jacob Hejlik gets the jump ball tip facing off against Belmond-Klemme last Tuesday. (Photo by Michelle Kronemann) some life and cut the margin to 48 â€“ 37 heading into the final period. The Bison continued their rally into the fourth
quarter and things became very tense for the Cards. GHV saw their doubledigit lead evaporate to three points in
the final minutes of the game, but the Cardinals were able to convert at the free throw line to retain the win. Braden Meints and Jake Wolf each scored a dozen points and grabbed five rebounds to lead GHV in the game. Spencer Shaw added 10 points followed by Joel Toppin with six points, five rebounds and five assists. Holden Hutcheson also scored six points while Sam Cataldo, Jimmy Ermer and Harley Forry all scored three. â€œWhen you are struggling to win, the next game always feels like a must win,â€? remarked Coach Albertson. â€œThat attitude may have hurt us in the games prior, but I think the boys started the game with the intent to just play their best basketball. Early on it showed when we opened up an eight-point lead with good bench play by Jimmy Ermer and Teddy Zrostlik. Spencer Shaw and Sam Cataldo helped us build a 14-point lead in the third quarter, but that disappeared in the fourth when we went six straight minutes without a point. Harley Forry came off the bench and hit a big free throw, Joel Toppin hit two in the fourth quarter to build our lead, and Jake Wolf knocked down two more to seal the deal.â€? Bishop Garrigan has always provided the Cardinals with a competitive nonconference game late in the season and Saturdayâ€™s trip to Algona continued that trend. The Golden Bears pulled ahead 11 â€“ 7 after one quarter of play and then extended their lead to 26 â€“ 19 by halftime. GHV got back into the game in
the third quarter and managed to knot the score at 32 â€“ 32 heading into the final period but Garrigan regained control in the fourth quarter to post a 58 â€“ 45 win. Joel Toppin scored 14 points to lead GHV on the offensive end of the floor. Braden Meints added 11 points with five rebounds followed by Holden Hutcheson with five points. Jake Wolf scored four points with seven rebounds and Harley Forry also scored four while Sam Cataldo chipped in three points. Spencer Shaw and Logan Ryerson each scored a two-point field goal to complete the scoring. â€œGarrigan has always been a tough team to play, and we have had trouble winning in their gym,â€? noted Albertson. â€œAfter trading baskets for the first quarter, Garrigan built a ten-point lead. We had trouble guarding their big guy in the first half, but did much better in the second half. The boys made a nice run to tie the game in the fourth quarter, but we hit a four-minute dry spell and their lead got pushed to eight. We tried to press and foul to get back in the game, but Garrigan knocked down their free throws. We have some things to fix before we play the last three conference games.â€? The Cardinals are now 5 â€“ 6 in North Iowa Conference play and 8 â€“ 9 overall. It will be a challenging week of action for the Cards with Lake Mills coming to Garner on Tuesday followed by a road trip to league-leading Forest City on Friday.
Trent had purchased a black diamond engagement ring and asked her to marry him as the film was rolling. The answer was yes so it made for great TV. â€œI was getting interviewed by the crew and I saw Trent coming in and I wondered why they wanted to talk to him as he was not hunting on the trip, just filming and taking pictures.
â€œLittle did I know what was going on and suddenly it made sense why everyone was disappointed the first night in camp. I would not been a very successful and eventful trip if the person they had everything set up for did not shoot a bear but it all would out in the end and it was something I will not forget.â€?
Local group kills six bears in Canada
By Greg Grabianowski Algona Upper Des Moines This article is printed with permission. Back in August, a group of eight local people trekked to Canada for an opportunity to kill a bear in the woods in area located in northwest Ontario near a little town called Atikokan. Local businessman Gene Hunt had been a regular customer and long-time friend of a guide named Albert Clement and took along with his wife, Patty; his brother Dwayne, Tri-Square employees Kurt and Lynette Hankins, long-time friend Jimmy Martin along with Alexa Kent and her boyfriend Trent Langenwalter. â€œGene has been a long-time customer and always bring a group of people hunting to Canada each year,â€? said Clement. â€œHe gets people involved in hunting and is big on family bonding. â€œThe group came up for a week-long hunting trip and they shot four bears the first night; Alexa shot one the second night and Jimmy got his the final night of the hunt. Three of the bears taken; (Alexa, Lynette and Jimmy) were record bears shot with Alexaâ€™s being the biggest at over 450 pounds.â€? Kent had never hunted before in her life and had to complete an on-line hunter safety course before heading to Canada for the hunt. In Canada like Iowa, a person cannot purchase a hunting license without proof of the completion of a hunter safety course. The first night out, both Lynette and Patty shot a bear with a gun and Kurt and Dwayne harvest a bear with a bow and arrow. Albert sat with Alexa and was the only ones to not even see a bear.
Eight area hunters trekked to Canada for a bear hunting expedition last fall. Pictured in the front row is Lynette Hankins, Alexa Kent and Patty Hunt, while pictured in the back row are Kurt Hankins, Gene Hunt, Trent Langenwalter, Dwayne Hunt and Canadian Guide Albert Clement. â€œThe first night was very discouraging,â€? said Kent. â€œI was in tree stand; the mosquitoes were terrible and all I saw were squirrels. I thought I came this far to see squirrels, we have them in Iowa. â€œIt was pretty scary for me. I had never to been to Canada and I had never seen a bear in my life before. After the first night, I still had not seen one and I was very disappointed that four of them had shot a bear and I did not even see one, much less shoot one.â€? The second night was much better for Kent as Clement put up a ground blind for her to hunt out of and addressed the bug problem so she would be a little more comfortable. â€œWe had been out about 2-3 hours
without again seeing anything,â€? said Kent. â€œJust before sunset, a bear came out on a log and Albert asked me if it was a big one. I told him I had never seen one before in my life so he looked at the bear and said it was a shooter. â€œI set up for the shot and squeezed the trigger once and the bear fell over. I was so scared and I hardly remember anything else about the moment. Albert went to check to see if the bear was dead and came back and said it was a success. â€œI was still shaking like a leaf; scared and my heart was thumping out of my chest. He congratulated me on shooting my first bear in Canada and we headed back to camp.â€?
Back at camp, there were seemingly sighs of relief and just the opposite of the previous night which Kent was puzzled about but as Paul Harvey used to day, she would soon find out the rest of the story. Clementâ€™s hunting adventures are really big on getting women involved on the hunting front and a television group out of the St. Louis area called ScentBlockers Most Wanted was going to do a story if the ladies had any success. The next morning, Alexa was interviewed by the television crew and Langenwalter had contact the group along with Clement to pop the question to Kent to marry him as she stood over her black bear.

Block Heads compete at State Tournament This was the first year for a FIRST Tech Challenge 4-H Robotics Club and it has been quite the learning experience so far. The Block Heads started the season by going to see the new challenge on Sept. 7, 2013 in Marion. Then it was designing, building, and programming a robot to do the Block Party Challenge. Part of the includes having the robot move on its own in the autonomous mode, the first thirty seconds of the match, and then operating the robot with hand held controllers for the last two minutes to make as many points as possible. To compete at a qualifying tournament each team needs to have an en-
gineering notebook that details everything about the teamâ€™s meetings and experiences, pass the hardware and software inspections, and interview with a panel of judges. Once they pass that they are put into qualifying matches with an alliance partner against two other teams. At the end of the regular matches the top four teams compete to see who the winning alliance will be and that alliance advances to the state competition. The Block Heads went to Sgt. Bluffs on Saturday, Jan. 11, for their first competition and ended up being fourth out of 24 teams. They picked their alliance partners and competed to be in the final
match. While they did not win, they did a great job and were one of the finalists for the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award. This award is given to a team that thinks â€œoutside the boxâ€? and uses ingenuity and inventiveness to make their designs come to life. The team then went to Cedar Falls on Saturday, Jan. 24, for their second qualifying tournament and competed against 21 other teams. They finished second at the end of the regular matches and won the final matches to be the Winning Alliance and earn a berth at the State FTC Tournament in Coralville on Feb. 21-22. They also won the Connect Award which is given to the team
that is the most connected with their local community. Judges said they were â€œStellarâ€? in their efforts of going â€œblock to blockâ€? to let others know about FTC. The other category they were a finalist in, but did not win, was the Think Award which celebrates the team that best reflects the FTC journey illustrated through their engineering notebook. FTC is a part of the FIRST robotics program and is for students in grades 7-12. The Block Heads are sponsored by Hancock County Extension, Stellar Industries, Inc, and Rockwell Collins. Anyone interested in learning more about the FTC program can call the Extension Office at 923-2856.

The Living (well through) Intergenerational Fitness and Exercise (LIFE) Program is the first of its kindâ€”a unique program led by youth that increases access to sustainable, low cost physical activity programming for older populations. Hancock Countyâ€™s local ISU Extension office and Concord Care Center are teaming up to start the LIFE program with area youth and the residents at Concord. â€œWeâ€™re very excited that youth from Hancock County and residents at Concord Care Center will be part of the LIFE program,â€? said Victoria Schmidt, County Youth Coordinator. â€œIâ€™m especially excited about social wellness component of the program. Area teen volunteers and residents have the opportunity to build relationships. It is about intergenerational friendships.â€? Victoria and Marline Lewerke, Activities Coordinator at Concord Care Center, are working together on this project. â€œIâ€™m so thrilled about having residents at Concord involved with the LIFE program,â€? added Lewerke. â€œThe interaction and teambuilding games will build friendships and relationships within this group of wonderful people.â€?

ticipants could improve their flexibility and hand strength. In addition to exercising, the LIFE program is effective in improving quality of life and reducing symptoms of depression in older adults. However, what really makes the LIFE program special is the interaction between youth and older adults. Local students have volunteered to serve as LIFE â€˜trainersâ€™ and have completed extensive training on using the KinectÂŽ gaming system, leading interactive games, and offering assistance and applying safety precautions when working with residents as they engage in physical activity. Youth from Hancock County and residents from Concord Care Center will meet twice a week for eight weeks to play KinectÂŽ Sports for up to an hour per session, combining aerobic and resistance activity. After the eight weeks, residents will be encouraged to continue the program on their own. The LIFE program has the potential to be a low-cost, community-based approach that promotes older adult health while connecting generations within society. The program is an example of community engagement and service learning. It meets a community need â€” helping older adults become more active â€” while offering students the opportunity to become more engaged as citizens.
