G-H drops shared boysâ€™ cross country with West Hancock By Rebecca Peter Garner-Hayfield/Ventura will continue to share the girls cross country program with West Hancock next year. The Garner-Hayfield Board of Education voted, however, to discontinue the shared agreement West Hancock concerning the boys team. The lack of boys from West Hancock participating in cross country in recent years is the reason why. West Hancock has supplied 1 boy athlete over all the years who was directly enrolled at the high school, according to Matt Graham, athletic director. West Hancock has supplied anywhere between 1-4 boys each year that are home schooled in the West Hancock School District boundary lines. West Hancock has provided a significant number of girls in the past, however, those numbers also appear to be dwindling, Superintendent Tyler Williams commented. Garner-Hayfield and West Hancock entered into a cross country sharing agreement in 2006. Ventura was added in 2010. As GHVWH, the boys and girls teams compete at the
3A level. While the girls team has enjoyed considerable success, Garner-Hayfield board members considered if the GHV boys cross country team would be better served if they competed at the 2A level instead of 3A. â€œI look at the relationships those girls have made,â€? Tim Tusha, board member said, â€œand it has brought the communities closer together.â€? â€œPart of me thinks that with the girls team, we should have an agreement.â€? Matt Graham felt GHV could support a strong cross country program for years to come. Graham was also sensitive to the relationships that have been built between the two schools. â€œI appreciate all sides,â€? he said. â€œI feel as long as we invited them in, I hate to push them out - so to speak,â€? commented board member Jack Toppin. Tyler Williams said he has had conversations with West Hancock Superintendent Wayne Kronneman on the topic. â€œWeâ€™ve tried to be a good neighbor,â€? he said.
The options before the board were: 1.) Continue with the cross country agreement as is. 2.) Discontinue sharing cross country with West Hancock altogether. 3.) Continue the agreement with West Hancock for the girls, but discontinue sharing with the boys. On a motion by Dave Zrostlik, the board opted for continuing the agreement for the girlsâ€™ team, but discontinue the sharing agreement for the boys. The motion also contained the stipulation that all practices for the girl will be held at Garner and that a review of student numbers will be held annually. The boysâ€™ team will be the GHV Cardinals and the girlsâ€™ team will be the GHVWH Cardinals. The GHV boys will be competing at the 2A level for 2014-15 whereas the GHVWH girls cross county team will continue to compete at 3A. Industrial Technologies Josh Oman and Tony Englin, industrial technology teachers, highlighted developments in their department, including new equipment purchases such as the 3D printer. â€œRight now weâ€™re the only ones in

250 signatures from Ventura on petitions calling for an election on the proposed reorganization between the two districts. Garner-Hayfield needs the signatures of 400 eligible resident voters to bring the matter to a public vote. The Ventura needs 304 signatures. Williams anticipates the Ventura district will reach the minimum number of signatures shortly. After that, the petitions will be sent to the Area Education Agency for verification. The AEA board will schedule hearings and set the date for a vote in September. In other business, the Garner-Hayfield School Board: â€˘Accepted the resignations of Dave Halverson (bus driver) and Dave Hildebrand (math instructor). Williams and the board thanked them for their many years of service. â€˘Approved the hiring of Emberly Albertson (assistant cross country), Jacob Young (volunteer coach) and Dillon Johanson (volunteer coach). â€˘Went into closed session to review records as allowed under Chapter 21.5(1)(a) of the Code of Iowa.
Kelsey Hollingshead Hollingshead clerked for a solo practitioner in Eagle Grove after her first year of law school, then for Earl Hill during the summer of 2012. She joined Hillâ€™s office in as a full-time associate in September of 2013. As Hancock County Magistrate, Hollingshead will preside over initial court appearances on criminal cases, hearings on small claims and simple misdemeanors, etc.
â€œI decided on a career as an attorney because I was fascinated by the legal concepts, and I wanted an intellectually challenging career,â€? she said. She chose to practice in rural Iowa for two reasons. â€œFirst, I enjoy the small town communities and clientele,â€? she said. â€œSecond, rural Iowa needs young attorneys because many attorneys are reaching retirement and there are few new attorneys coming in to fill the void.â€? She continued, â€œI believe it is very important that the rural communities have attorneys so that people donâ€™t have to travel far distances to find an attorney. It is inconvenient and more costly for people to go to, for example, Mason City, as they have to pay expenses related to the traveling. Most notably, it is hard on the elderly and lower income populations as traveling may be a bit harder for them.â€? Hollingshead is engaged to Sam Beenken of Buffalo Center. The couple will be married in August.

Week Five has been a flurry of committee work, as next week will be the first funnel week for bills to be passed out of their respective committees. Debate began this week on various issues including internet abortion pills, electronic smoking bans for minors, and state aid for schools. As I write this newsletter, we are in the middle of the debate on state funding of schools, HF2194. As of 1993 â€œAllowable Growthâ€? is required by law to be established (for the next two years) within 30 days of the Governor presenting his budget to the legislature. It has been argued by the proponents of HF 2194 that the prior practice of setting the Allowable Growth in advance in those two years has not lent itself to stable budgets. From FY02 until FY10, there were six
ly, there is little chance this bill will reach the floor for debate. Many good bills are often denied the opportunity for debate, including bills to protect innocent life, defend traditional marriage and protect our constitutional rights. There is even a bill that would allow local governments the opportunity to regulate juice bars with nude dancing. That bill passed the House 90-10 and the Senate Judiciary Committee 10-2, yet the Senate Majority leader refuses to allow all of these bills to move forward, making himself the gatekeeper for all legislation in the state. I believe the best interests of the state are not being served when one man wields so much power. Iowa Department of Natural Resources officials announced this week plans to consolidate its three departments into two units. I applaud DNR Director Chuck Gipp and the department for their commitment to reducing the size and scope of government. The move was made due to Governor Terry Branstadâ€™s challenge to department heads to reduce the size of their departments by 15 percent in order to decrease government spending. Utilizing new technologies and shifting staff responsibilities, Director Gipp and the DNR have been able to eliminate its management services division. DNR officials announced this week the management services duties such as issuing hunting and fishing licenses would be shifted to the conservation and recreation department and environmental services division. I am hopeful that other departments will follow the DNRâ€™s lead. I enjoyed talking with many people from District 4 this past week. Please feel welcome to visit me at the Capitol or contact me via email at dennis. firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 641-430-0424. I will be conducting 3 forums in Hancock County on Feb. 21st. 1:15 at the Garner Library, 3:00 at the Kanawha City Hall, and 4:30 at the Britt City Hall. Hope to you there!
It is incredible to me that we are already in the fifth week of the 2014 Legislative session. Committees continue to meet in anticipation of the funnel date of Feb. 21. Legislation that has not passed out of committee by that day will not be eligible for floor debate this year. The funnel date was moved up this year in order to facilitate an early adjournment date, hopefully near the first of April. This has kept all of our legislators scrambling. I have heard concerns from veteran legislators this can lead to legislation that is hastily written and must be fixed next year. I am doing all I can to keep that from happening. The gas tax is still a hot topic which may come to the floor this session. Almost everyone agrees we need to do more to keep our roads safe and efficient. I am disappointed some have decided raising taxes is the only solution to this problem when we have a surplus in the General Fund. These dollars have already been taken from our taxpayers and should either be returned or used to keep taxes from being raised. I have co-sponsored two bills that would appropriate money from the General Fund and place it in the Road Use Tax Fund. These bills are for a standing appropriation that would continue from year to year. This money could be put to immediate use â€“ we donâ€™t have to wait for it to be collected. Letâ€™s use the money we have today before we start asking citizens for more of their hard-earned dollars. This week, I am filling a bill that would permit the use of reasonable force in order to avoid injury or risk of life of yourself or another. Currently, if you are outside of your own home you cannot even show a gun to an assailant in order to discourage their aggression. This has led to unnecessary arrests and unjust consequences for people who were just trying to defend themselves or others. What good is owning a gun for selfdefense if we are penalized for using it for that very purpose? Unfortunate-

QUESTION: Peripheral Arterial Disease : What is it and Who Should Be Screened? ANSWER by: Julie Larson, ARNP, providing treatment and care for the whole family in the Britt Medical Clinic. In normal blood circulation through the body, blood travels easily through arteries to the legs to provide your tissues and muscles with oxygen and other nutrients, and then returns through the venous system to the heart. In peripheral arterial disease, atherosclerosis narrows the blood vessels in your legs, making it more difficult for adequate blood supply to reach the muscles and tissues there. You may have peripheral arterial disease if you have any one of these symptoms: â€˘ Painful cramping in your hip, thigh or calf muscles after activity. Often the affected leg will hurt with activity, and improve with rest, a term known as â€œintermittent claudicationâ€?. â€˘ Leg numbness or weakness. â€˘ Hair loss, or slower hair growth on your lower legs and feet. â€˘ Coolness or pale color of a lower leg or foot, especially when compared with the opposite leg.

New Materials Fiction Banks, Maya; Sweet Seduction - A new series from Maya Banks complete with new characters sure to delight her fans. Benjamin, Melanie; The Aviatorâ€™s Wife - When Anne Morrow, a shy college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family, she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charlesâ€™s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong. Gardner, Lisa; Fear Nothing - The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. Patterson, James; Private LA Thom and Jennifer Harlow are the perfect couple, with three perfect children. They maybe two of the biggest mega movie stars in the world, but theyâ€™re also great parents, philanthropists and just all-around good people. When they disappear without a word from their ranch, facts are hard to find. Rollins, James; The Blood Gospel - An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators--Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist--are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl. But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run.
New Materials Non-Fiction Davis, Katie; Kisses from Katie - What would cause an eighteenyear-old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brotherâ€™s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because they think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person and didnâ€™t even speak the language? A passion to follow Jesus. David, William M.D.; Wheat Belly 30-Minute (or less) Cookbook - Readers will find an introduction to the ABCs of wheat-free cooking, plus a guide to prepping the kitchen, stocking the pantry, and getting started on a healthy new path.

Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Osteen, Joel; Every Day a Friday - The title comes from research that shows people are happiest on Fridays. Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate this level of contentment and joy every day of the week.

Global Compassion Networkâ€™s latest project in Haiti: the James 1:27 Widows & Infants Village of Safe T HomesÂŽ. Volunteers from northern Iowa helped build two Safe T HomesÂŽ at the village. (Submitted photo)
GCN breaks ground on Widows & Infants Village in Haiti
EAGLE GROVE â€“ The ground-breaking on the James 1:27 Widows & Infants Village â€“- Global Compassion Networkâ€™s latest project in Haiti - has begun. A team from the First United Methodist Church in Algona helped build two Safe T HomesÂŽ this past week in Les Cayes. GCN, along with Laborers With Christ, initiated this project after learning about an unspeakable experience that GCNâ€™s Haitian Directors Eddy and Djoune Constant had while visiting a friend in the Les Cayes Hospital. While in the OB ward, the Constants learned that far too many babies are abandoned at the hospital because their parents are unable to care for them. Unfortunately, the medical staff doesnâ€™t have the means to care for them either, so many end up dying. â€œThis heart-wrenching story gave us a wakeup call to an incredible need,â€? explained GCN Co-Founder Ken DeYoung. â€œThis project will provide homes for the widows so they can care for babies who donâ€™t have mothers.â€? Widows â€“ like these abandoned newborns â€“ are also overlooked in the Haitian culture. If a widow has a family, then she is usually cared for, but if she doesnâ€™t, she is left on her own to survive. The James 1:27 Widows & Infants Village is being built near GCNâ€™s other projects in Les Cayes including the Consolation Center â€“ an orphanage for 54 girls; the Medical Clinic; the Centre Educatif le Reconfort School; and the Community Center. To support the James 1:27 Widows & Infants Village, donate online at www. globalcn.us/donate.html or send a check to Global Compassion Network, PO Box 193, Eagle Grove, IA 50533.

Hereâ€™s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure 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!

The North Iowa Ringnecks Youth Chapter of Pheasants Forever and the Agape Christian Church are working together with Duck Dynasty to bring a Robertson family member to North Iowa this summer. Based on Robertsonâ€™s criteria, these two local organizations were chosen due to their commitment to youth outdoor activities and ministries within Northern Iowa. This is the first time the Robertson family has selected the Midwest for a speaking engagement. The program is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24 to take place in Garner if the groups are successful in raising the costs associated with bringing a Robertson family member to Iowa. The event would include a motivational program about faith, family, and the outdoors plus a meet and greet session. The goal is to raise enough funds to bring Uncle Si Robertson in for the event. Sponsorships from area businesses and individuals are needed to make this happen by April 1 to secure
Rule Out Coronary Artery Disease Stress Echocardiogram Test available at Hancock County Memorial Hospital BRITT â€“ Hancock County Health System (HCHS) is ensuring quality healthcare is available close to home. Resident of Hancock County and the surrounding area no longer need to travel to take advantage of testing that would rule out coronary artery disease (CAD); a condition that can cause decreased blood flow to the heart. â€œA stress echocardiogram combines a treadmill stress test with an echocardiogram and is one of the most accurate non-invasive tests used to rule out CAD,â€? said Jami Hagen, HCHS Radiology Director. The Radiology depart-
ment in Hancock County Memorial Hospital has staff trained with experience to operate the equipment while a member of the medical staff is qualified to perform the test. This test helps the doctor evaluate cardiac conditions related to irregular heart rhythms, decreased supplies of blood and oxygen to the heart at rest and with exertion, overall level of cardiovascular condition, how hard the heart has to work before symptoms develop, and how quickly the heart recovers after exercise. For more information about the services and programs available at HCHS, please visit www.trustHCHS.com.

Garner man has wins $10,000 lottery prize DES MOINES, Iowa â€“ A northern Iowa man cashed in some winning lottery tickets for a â€œCash Infernoâ€? instantscratch ticket and ended up winning a big lottery prize. Robert Deibler of Garner claimed the sixth of nine prizes of $10,000 available in the Cash Inferno game. Deibler said he typically doesnâ€™t buy $10 scratch tickets, but he decided to try one during a recent stop for gas at Garner Townmart, 260 W. U.S. Highway 18 in Garner. â€œTold (the clerk) to pick me one out and they picked it and it was a good one,â€? Deibler, 65, said. Deibler, who is retired, said he took his ticket home and scratched it off. â€œI could hardly believe it,â€? he said. â€œI never even dreamed of getting something like that.â€? Deibler claimed his prize Feb. 5 at the Iowa Lotteryâ€™s regional office in Mason City. Deibler said he and his wife, Diane, plan to use the lottery winnings to take a vacation this summer. Cash Inferno is a $10 scratch game.
Players scratch the â€œlucky symbolsâ€? and â€œyour symbolsâ€? in each row. If a player matches the â€œ2X, 5X or 10X your symbolsâ€? to the â€œlucky symbol,â€? they win two, five or 10 times the prize shown for that row. Each row is played separately. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.11. Two top prizes of $100,000 are still up for grabs in Cash Inferno, as well as three prizes of $10,000, 87 prizes of $1,000 and thousands of prizes from $100 to $300. Since the lotteryâ€™s start in 1985, its players have won more than $3.2 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.5 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans. Today, lottery proceeds in Iowa have three main purposes: They provide support for veterans, help for a variety of significant projects through the state General Fund, and backing for the Vision Iowa program, which was implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions in the state and build and repair schools.
Waldorf Choir to perform with Iowa State Singers FOREST CITY â€“ Over 100 college students will come together based on a single common interest: Singing. Waldorf Choir will be performing in a joint concert, free to the public, with the Iowa State Singers Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Immanuel Lutheran Church. â€œThis concert will be a wonderful chance to for both Waldorf and ISU students to unite in their common love of singing. Our students will get the chance to hear and perform with a larger ensemble.â€? Dr. Adam Luebke, Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music, said. The 33 members of the Waldorf Choir and 72 members of the Iowa State Singers will be performing muthose offering associateâ€™s and bachelorâ€™s degrees. As in past years, students receiving grants will be selected by an eightmember committee.
sic from a variety of styles and eras, including a setting of the Shakespeare text â€œBlow, Blow thou Winter Windâ€? by the living American composer Matthew Harris and Rene Clausenâ€™s piece, â€œPrayerâ€? a setting of words by Mother Teresa. Dr. James Rodde, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, directs the Iowa State Singers. Under his direction, the group has toured internationally to the Baltic States and Scandinavia, China, and Korea. The Waldorf Choir has also toured internationally, performing in the British Isles in 2012. Dr. Luebke believes bringing the Waldorf Choir and the Iowa State Singers together will not only benefit the audience members who experience the music, but will enhance student learning. â€œIt is exciting and enriching for us to hear another choir because we can hear how different singers and conductors share their spirit and emotions through music,â€? he said.

Cardinals Denied Trip to State Wrestling GHVâ€™s three remaining wrestlers traveled to Webster City on Saturday hoping to earn a trip to the Class 2A State Wrestling Meet. All three Cardinals competed against a brutal field of opponents at the district meet and Cardinal fans knew going in that advancing would be a long shot for any of the trio. Senior Austin Oborny was making his second appearance at a district wrestling while senior A.J. Arnold and freshman Connor Shaw were competing at districts for the first time. At 126 pounds Austin Oborny was the first GHV wrestler taking the mat on Saturday. Roland-Storyâ€™s Parker Witthuhn proved to be more than Austin could handle as Oborny lost by fall in the second period. A.J. Arnold followed Oborny, competing at 132 pounds against Ballardâ€™s Mitchell Broer. Broer also proved to be a strong competitor as he topped A.J. by technical fall with a score of 17 â€“ 2. In GHVâ€™s final first round action of the day, Connor Shaw faced Webster Cityâ€™s Tanner Hild in a 152-pound match. Shaw wrestled a strong match before losing a 6 â€“ 0 decision. All three wrestlers would need a win in their consolation final match to preserve any hope of a wrestleback and a possible trip to Des Moines. At 126 pounds, Austin Oborny was eliminated by Clear Lakeâ€™s Spencer Orr as the Lion sophomore pinned Austin in the second period. At 132 pounds, A.J. Arnoldâ€™s day ended with a loss to Jake Miller from Humboldt by a 10 â€“ 2 decision. At 152 pounds, Connor Shaw did have some hope after earning a second period pin over Tristan Gibson from Gilbert. The results of the 152-pound final gave Connor a wrestleback opportunity, but Algonaâ€™s Kory Kuecker posted a 10 â€“ 2 win in that match to end Shawâ€™s season. Cardinal coach Steve Smith commented, â€œOn the day all three guys wrestled very well. Austin and A.J. had pretty tough draws in their opening round as did Connor. During the wrestleback Connor was in the match up to the very end. I was very pleased with the effort given by all three wrestlers. This has been a great year for GHV wrestling. We are headed in the right direction. The seniors will be missed but we do have a lot of young guys coming back next year.â€?

Garner-Hayfield/Ventura boys win two With the beginning of tournament play rapidly approaching, GHV boysâ€™ basketball coach Joe Albertson was hoping to see he Cardinal team end the regular season on a roll. Albertson was not disappointed as GHV posted two convincing wins last week. The Cards traveled to Newman on Monday for their final North Iowa Conference game of the season. The Knights may have finished at the bottom of the conference standings this year, but they always seem to play very competitively on their home floor. GHV got off to a strong start in the game, pulling ahead 20 â€“ 11 after the first quarter. The Cardinals appeared to be in control after pushing the lead to 38 â€“ 25 at halftime, but Newman put together an impressive rally in the third and fourth quarters to keep the game interesting. The Knights chipped away at the deficit in the third quarter, knotting the score at one point before trailing 49 - 43 with the final eight minutes remaining. Newman pulled to within four points early in the fourth quarter before the Cardinals got back on track to pull away for the 65 â€“ 55 win. Braden Meints scored 23 points with six rebounds and six steals to lead GHV on the night. Jake Wolf followed with an amazing 16 rebounds and 21 points followed by Joel Toppin with a dozen points and three steals. Spencer Shaw completed the scoring total with nine points and six assists. Cardinal coach Joe Albertson commented, â€œGetting off to a fast start on the road can never hurt, and we were able to open up an early nine-point first quarter lead led by Jake Wolf, who had 12 first quarter points. Jake was all over the offensive glass and took care of business in the paint. After Newman tied it up in the third quarter, Braden Meints took over in the fourth quarter. He made a number of steals and drives to the basket. It was a nice win to end the conference season.â€? The Cardinals traveled to Charles City on Thursday to end their regular
season schedule. The Comets have not had a great season this year, but Charles City always manages to provide a stiff challenge especially on their home floor. A quick start was critical again as GHV pulled ahead 18 â€“ 12 after one period of play. The two teams traded baskets through the second quarter and the Cardinals extended their lead to 27 â€“ 19 by halftime. The game stayed virtually even through the second half, with GHV leading 39 â€“ 32 after three quarters before eventually winning 52 â€“ 44. Braden Meints scored 16 points with five rebounds and four assists to lead the Cardinals in this game. Joel Toppin added 13 points and six assists followed by Jake Wolf with 11 points and six rebounds. Logan Ryerson grabbed seven rebounds to go with six points while Spencer Shaw scored four points and Luke Wolf added two. â€œWe have had trouble in the past winning in Charles City, so I was a little worried that that trend would continue unless we could get a good start to the game,â€? stated Albertson. â€œFortunately, we did. Braden Meints hit three threepointers in the first quarter to help us build a 10-point first quarter lead. We were able to hold that lead throughout the game with the help of Logan Ryerson. Logan played well on defense and was very active on the boards. Down the stretch Joel Toppin sealed the deal with seven points in the fourth quarter. It was what we needed and expected from a senior captain. It was good to go into the tournaments with a win.â€? GHV finished conference play with a record of 7 â€“ 7 and were 11 â€“ 10 overall. The Cardinals will begin Class 2A district tournament play on Monday on their home court against Saint Ansgar. The Saints enter the game with an overall record of 7 â€“ 14, meaning that Cardinal fans are optimistic about the chances of advancing to Thursdayâ€™s second round game at New Hampton.

There were two games scheduled for the GHV girlsâ€™ basketball team last week with both of them carrying great significance. On Monday, the Cardinals traveled to Newman where they were expected to post a ho-hum win to earn sole possession of the North Iowa Conference title. On Saturday, the Cards traveled to Osage for what was expected to be a very competitive first round regional contest against the Green Devils. Both games lived up to those expectations. Mondayâ€™s game at Newman was closer than expected through the first quarter. The Knights were able to stay with GHV as the Cardinal lead was only 13 â€“ 10 after one period. The Cards began to pull away in the second quarter and led 36 â€“ 21 at halftime. The game came to a virtual standstill in the third quarter as the score only increased to 39 â€“ 27 heading into the final period. GHVâ€™s defense held Newman to two points in the last eight minutes of the game but the Cardinals came back to life and recorded a 53 â€“ 29 win. Maddie Tusha led GHV with 16 points, eight rebounds and an amazing 13 steals. Emily Spilman scored 11 points with six steals and four assists followed by Shelby Rayhons with eight points. Mackenzie Haag added six points and four rebounds while Grace Tusha scored four points with four boards. Bri Bier, Payton Bamrick, Madee Hejna and Mackenzie Van Gerpen all added two points to the scoring total. Cardinal coach Matt Erpelding commented, â€œIt wasnâ€™t the prettiest game of the season but we got the job done. We were outplayed in the first quarter and that allowed Newman to gain a lot of confidence. I feel it was a simple case of the Newman girls playing with more energy than we did. We did a poor job covering up their three-point shooters that we were supposed to and that sparked their team and got the crowd into the game. We played better in the second quarter and we were able to get a little separation at half. We only shot six percent (1-16) in the third quarter and that allowed them to hang around. Fortunately we only gave up two points on free throws in the fourth quarter and we were able to make some shots which enabled us to coast home with the win.â€? In spite of the win, Erpelding was able to see areas that need improvement as the Cardinals begin tournament play. â€œI was not at all excited with the fact we were out rebounded in the game. I see that as a sign we were out hustled. That hasnâ€™t happened very often and I donâ€™t expect it will happen again this season. On the positive side we forced 39 turnovers that we converted into 32 points, we shot free throws in the mid 60% range again and our second half defense was very good again. Maddie and Emily did a great job on the front end of our press coming away with 13 and six steals respectively.â€? Erpelding was pleased with the NIC title. â€œI want to congratulate my girls on winning the conference championship!! They have worked hard all season long and battled through some rough nights to pull out victories. We have accomplished one of our team goals but we arenâ€™t done yet. This group looks forward to achieving another one of those goals as we move forward into the post season.â€? The girlsâ€™ athletic union didnâ€™t do GHV any favors when assembling regional tournament assignments as the Cardinals opened Class 2A play on the
road at Osage. In two previous meetings, GHV and the Green Devils had each won a game, with Osage pulling out their victory in December while three key Cardinal players were unavailable due to injury. Both previous meetings were very close ball games so Cardinal players, coaches and fans were expecting another nail-biter. Paying customers got their moneyâ€™s worth at this game. In their most recent meeting, Osage gained the upper hand early but the Cardinals were able to eventually recover and rally for the win. This game followed a similar trend. Osage slipped ahead 7 â€“ 6 after one quarter of play and then pulled away some in the second period. The Green Devils had pushed their lead to nine points early in the quarter but GHV closed the gap to 19 â€“ 15 by halftime. Osage maintained a slight lead through the entire third quarter to stay ahead 28 â€“ 25 going into the final period. The resilient Cardinals held their hosts to only three fourth quarter points and were able to force a tie at 31 â€“ 31 by the end of regulation. With the momentum clearly in their favor, the Cardinals took control early in the extra period. Back-to-back three pointers by Maddie Tusha and Bri Bier followed by a Shelby Rayhons field goal put GHV in the driverâ€™s seat with a 39 â€“ 31 lead. Osage was forced to foul and GHV responded by knocking down free throws late in the extra period to preserve a 44 â€“ 34 victory. Bri Bier scored 11 points with 11 rebounds and four assists to lead GHV in the win. Shelby Rayhons followed with eight points and five rebounds and Maddie Tusha added eight points, five steals and five boards. Emily Spilman chipped in six points while Mackenzie Haag and Hannah Lau netted four points apiece. Mackenzie Van Gerpen completed the scoring total with a field goal. Coach Erpelding was very enthused with the outcome of the contest. â€œWow what an amazing basketball game!! Just like every other game we have played against Osage the last two seasons, this game was a defensive battle that went right down to the wire. The outcome didnâ€™t look good for 31 minutes but my girls never gave up and we were able to tie it up in the last minute of regulation and force overtime.â€? Erpelding noted, â€œWe did a great job of being very patient offensively to start the game which allowed us to keep Osage from getting off to a quick start and kept their home crowd from getting into the game, thus helping take away some of the home court advantage. Both defenses made it very difficult for the other team to get any easy looks at the basket. We did miss a few easy shots in the first half which hurt us a bit but we kept fighting.â€? Erpelding credited senior leadership, defense and improved rebounding late in the game as keys to the win. â€œOur rebounding effort on the defensive end hurt us early in the second half but we did a better job of rebounding later in the half. We had a couple HUGE steals in the last couple minutes that enabled us to get layups and tie the game. Three of our seniors stepped up BIG TIME in the overtime. Maddie and Bri each knocked down a three, the only two threes we made all night, and Shelby executed a post move against their very good post player. Those eight points ignited us and our defense in overtime was outstanding. Maddie and Bri both knocked down a pair of free throws to ice it.â€?

Austin Oborny Eric Bruggeman by Meg Finley Being in senior study hall with Mark Wellik, Trey Jass and Colton Knutson is one of Austin Obornyâ€™s favorite parts about senior year. Austin was born on May 8, 1996, to his parents Michael and Nickki Oborny. Austin has one older brother, Skylar Oborny. Austinâ€™s favorites include watching Man vs. Food and Iron Man 3. He enjoys cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles and loves to hate the New York Giants. Other things that Austin likes are goats, the color blue, Caseyâ€™s and eating bacon and cheese McChickens.

Spending many hours playing PokĂŠmon with Keith Schwickerath and his brother Skylar is Austinâ€™s favorite childhood memory. While in high school Austin has participated in Student Council, football, cross country, wrestling and basketball. After high school Austin plans to attend UNI to major in physical education and minor in health education.
Heather Bailey by Ashton Wolf
Moving out of Iowa is Heather Baileyâ€™s number-one bucket-list item. Heather is the daughter of Lorell Bailey and Shane Bailey and was born Aug. 6, 1995. Heather has two younger brothers, Patrick and Michael. She also has two dogs, Rayder and Peanut, and two cats, Dewy and Leo. One thing Heather would change about herself is not to procrastinate so much and get her work done and in on time. She actually stresses the importance of that in her advice to underclassmen, which is â€œGet your stuff finished on time and do your best. Donâ€™t slack off because it wonâ€™t get you anywhere.â€? Heatherâ€™s biggest pet peeve is when people get into other peopleâ€™s business when they are not needed, and her nervous habit is biting her lip or her nails. Heatherâ€™s favorites include the book Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, NCIS, the music group Theory of a Deadman, cheering for the Vikings, hating the Packers, Hot Topic, giraffes, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, art class, celebrity Tyler Connolly, the color lime green and the Jack Sparrow quote â€œThe problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.â€? Heatherâ€™s role model is her dad because she has always been interested in his career and he always gives her good advice. â€œDonâ€™t let them get to youâ€? is the best advice Heather has received from someone this year. During high school Heather has been involved in choir and plays, and while attending Belmond, she was in show choir. After high school Heather will miss seeing everyone that she knows. She plans to attend Iowa Central for criminal justice and is looking forward to that program and figuring out what her career will be.
Natasha Molencamp by Trevor Rayhons
Building a snow fort at least 10 feet high with her dad and siblings is one of the many moments that Natasha Molencamp cherishes from her childhood. Natasha R. Molencamp, granddaughter of Graydon and Sally Lau and daughter of the late Jeff Molencamp, was born on Nov. 18, 1995. Natasha has two sisters, Cassie and Niki; two brothers, Nick and Cody; a nephew, Carson, and a dog, Toby. Some of Natashaâ€™s favorites include the TV shows Dexter, Raising Hope and Teen Wolf. She enjoys BLT pizza, the color blue, the store Victoriaâ€™s Secret and Hunter Hayesâ€™ music. Natasha also loves dogs, the movie Twilight, chocolate ice cream and art class with Mrs. Hill. She roots for the Vikings and loves to hate the Bears, and her favorite quote is â€œWhen someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.â€? Her favorite part about senior year has been senior study hall. Some fun facts about Natasha are that she claims to be the very best pizza maker ever known to humanity at the Garner Pizza Ranch and that she lives with her grandparents. If Natasha could change one thing about herself, it would be to change nothing at all. On her bucket list is to buy a car, and her biggest pet peeve is when people chew loudly with their mouths open. Natashaâ€™s celebrity crush is Tyler Hoechlin from the TV show Teen Wolf, and if she were to be around him, her nervous habit of biting her fingernails might surface. Natashaâ€™s best advice she has been given this year has been not to be sad for everything and everyone that has passed but live for them and praise that they were in your life in the first place. Natashaâ€™s role model is GHVâ€™s art teacher, Mrs. Hill, because â€œshe tells me that I can do anything and always pushes me to my greatest potential.â€? Some of Natashaâ€™s hobbies include working and sleeping. While in high school, she has been involved in track, basketball and choir. Her favorite high school memories are being in Mrs. Bierleâ€™s room and growing close with friends that she never thought she would be friends with again. Natasha looks forward to living on her own after high school and is proud that she is going to graduate in the spring. Natasha plans on attending NIACC in the fall for two years and then Iowa State to become an art teacher. She is going to miss being able to go into Mrs. Hillâ€™s and Mrs. Bierleâ€™s rooms without an excuse. She advises underclassmen not to let people get to you. Ignore what is said, and be who you want to be.
by Mallory Johnson
The number one thing on Eric Bruggemanâ€™s bucket list is to travel across Europe. Eric is the son of Chris and Norman Bruggeman and has two older brothers, Alex and Nick. He has three pets named Sadie, Zoe and Thud. Eric was born on July 4, 1996. Ericâ€™s favorite childhood memory is moving his house from Klemme to Garner. Some more of Ericâ€™s favorite include the book Eragon, the television show Top Gear, the movie Skyfall, the music group Daft Punk, Doritos, Amazon, the color blue, polar bears, vanilla ice cream, Team USA and the Samuel Beckett quote â€œEver tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.â€? Ericâ€™s celebrity crush is Jennifer Lawrence. If Eric could change one thing about himself, it would be his voice so he could sound like Morgan Freeman. Ericâ€™s nervous habit is scratching his cheek, and his pet peeve is being able to hear people chewing their food. If Eric could walk in someone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, heâ€™d walk in Jeremy Clarksonâ€™s because â€œhe gets to travel the world with his friends while driving nice cars.â€? Ericâ€™s hobbies include working on computers and playing video games. Ericâ€™s favorite part of his senior year has been live streaming the football and basketball games, and his favorite high school memory is going to the park for physics. The best advice Eric has been given this year is â€œPeople arenâ€™t as critical of your every move as you might think.â€? Eric has been involved in basketball, and the high school achievement he is most proud of is always making the A or B honor roll. Ericâ€™s advice to underclassmen is â€œTry to get on your teacherâ€™s good side.â€? Eric will miss seeing his friends every day, but he is looking forward to having a little more free time after high school. Eric plans to attend NIACC and then a university for a degree.
Miranda Frederick by Theodore Zrostlik
A fun fact about Miranda Frederick is that she was legally blind in one eye until second grade. Miranda was born Sept. 10, 1995, to Jim and Marie Frederick and joined her brothers Ben and Zach and her sister Shayna. Miranda has three cats, Cat, Kibby and Felicia. Some of Mirandaâ€™s favorites include Looking for Alaska, Greyâ€™s Anatomy, Titanic, One Direction, Ashton Kutcher, sushi, the color red, cats, college bio, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and strawberry ice cream. Her favorite quote is â€œTry again. Fail again. Fail better,â€? by Samuel Beckett. Mirandaâ€™s role model is her mom because she has worked hard and is what Miranda strives to beâ€”thoughtful, generous and smart. If Miranda could walk in anyone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, she would choose a Nebraska Husker volleyball playerâ€™s. The celebrity that people tell Miranda she looks the most like is Vanessa Marano from Switched at Birth. Mirandaâ€™s biggest pet peeves are when people donâ€™t take time for the â€œlittle thingsâ€? like saying thank you and when people are rude to their waiters. Mirandaâ€™s nervous habit is cleaning, and if she could change one thing about herself, she would like to be three inches taller. During high school Miranda has been involved in band, choir, cheerleading, volleyball, Student Council, NHS, track, FCCLA, Girlâ€™s State, jazz band, speech and drama. Mirandaâ€™s favorite high school memory is playing volleyball all four years, and her favorite memory from her senior year is beating Forest City in the regional volleyball semi-finals. The achievement that Miranda is most proud of from high school is being a tri-captain of the GHV volleyball team. Miranda will miss being able to grow up with her classmates the most about high school. Miranda advises underclassmen to make the most out of high school but to remember that itâ€™s just high school and that there is much more to life. Miranda plans on attending UNI to study psychology.
Emily Brown by Tierra Luppen
A fun fact about Emily Brown is that she once won an airplane ticket by writing an essay. Emily Brown, the daughter of Mike and Cheri Brown, was born Feb. 19, 1996. Emily has two older brothers, Nicholas and Michael, as well as two pets: Buddy, a miniature poodle whose tongue sticks out, and Milo, an old orange cat who used to live in a barn. Her role models are Kayla Krogman and her grandma Brown; Kayla is awesome and fun to be with, and her grandma is a very kind, generous and caring person. Some of Emilyâ€™s favorites include Glee, the movie Frozen, beef lo Mein, Vanity, light blue, triple chocolate layer cake ice cream, mock trial and wolves. She enjoys the books Unwind, Keeper and Dragonfly. Emilyâ€™s favorite sports team is Team USA, and her favorite team to hate is Team Edward. Visiting the Harry Potter theme park is one of the things on Emilyâ€™s bucket list. Her biggest pet peeve is injustice, and her nervous habits are pacing and shaking her hands. Reading, singing and drawing are some of her hobbies. If Emily could walk in someone elseâ€™s shoes for a day, she would choose Oprahâ€™s because sheâ€™s really rich and kind and everyone likes her. If Emily could change one about herself, she would be 5â€™10â€? so she could be taller than all her friends and her mom. During high school Emily has been involved in FFA (state creed speaker), FCCLA, mock trial, drama, soccer, choir and speech. Emily auditioned for All-State choir and has attended multiple honor choirs. The high school achievement she is most proud of is being named a National Merit Commended Scholar. Seeing her friends is what Emily will miss most about high school, and her favorite part of senior year has been the snow days. Emilyâ€™s favorite high school memories are working on and performing projects and skits for Spanish. Emily advises underclassmen that â€œAs long as it doesnâ€™t hurt others or yourself, do what you like because youâ€™ll find friends.â€? After graduation she plans to attend either Wartburg or St. Olaf for four years and intends to study hard and be at or near the top of her class. Emily is looking forward to gaining a sense of independence in college.
Shelby Rayhons by Mikah Millard
Throughout high school Shelby Rayhons has made many memories. The New Orleans band trip her sophomore year, however, is her favorite. Shelby Elizabeth Rayhons, daughter of Randy and Karen Rayhons and sister of Lindsey Rayhons, was born Feb. 19, 1996. Her role model is her dad because of all the life lessons he has taught her. During her four years at both Ventura and GHV, Shelby has participated in volleyball, basketball, track, National Honor Society, Bible studies, marching band, jazz band and concert band. She is most proud of her many sports accomplishments, and beating conference rivals Forest City and Lake Mills in volleyball this past fall rank as the favorite parts of her senior year. In her free time Shelby enjoys sports, watching Netflix and playing Tetris. Some of Shelbyâ€™s favorites include penguins, the color purple, anatomy class, McDonaldâ€™s vanilla soft serve ice cream and the House Special pizza at Sugar and Slice. Her go-to movie is Sheâ€™s the Man (or anything with Zac Efron), and most days you can find her listening to Fall Out Boy or watching Greyâ€™s Anatomy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Say Yes to the Dress. Shelbyâ€™s a diehard Pittsburgh Penguins fan, and she loves to hate the Minnesota Vikings. Coincidentally, Shelbyâ€™s celerity crush is none other than Sidney Crosby, the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Among other things, Shelby also enjoys reading but had too many favorite books to choose just one. Shelbyâ€™s favorite quote is Proverbs 3:5-6, â€œTrust in the Lord with all your heart, on your own intelligence rely not; in all your ways be mindful of Him, and He will make straight your paths.â€? Like many, Shelby has some peculiar quirks. For instance, she once dedicated her entire summer to learning how to juggle. If Shelby could walk in anyoneâ€™s shoes for a day, she would walk in BeyoncĂŠâ€™s because she is the definition of perfect (and she has great shoes). Shelby thinks her celebrity lookalike is Kim Kardashian, and the number one thing on her bucket list is to visit Ireland. Shelby wishes her eyes didnâ€™t get squinty when she smiles, and she always plays with her hair tie when sheâ€™s nervous. A couple of Shelbyâ€™s biggest pet peeves are when people donâ€™t put any effort toward something and then complain about it afterwards and when people talk during movies. Of everything in high school, Shelby will miss seeing the people sheâ€™s grown up with every day the most. She is, however, looking forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead. Shelby plans on attending the University of Iowa and majoring in speech and hearing sciences. The best advice sheâ€™s been given this year is never to listen to Maddie Tushaâ€™s ideas. Shelbyâ€™s advice to underclassman: â€œDonâ€™t try to grow up too fast, enjoy high school and make the best of any situation.â€?
Braden Meints by Dane Neuberger
Playing basketball with LeBron James is the number one thing on Braden Meintsâ€™ bucket list. Braden, the son of Scott and Robin Ginapp and Dave and Sherry Meints, was born Aug. 11, 1995. Bradenâ€™s siblings are Kylie Ginapp, Jori Meints and Braxton Meints. He also has a dog named Sammy and a cat named Sox. LeBron James is also Bradenâ€™s role model because the way he enjoys life has taught Braden that he could have everything and still have nothing. LeBron is also that person whose shoes Braden would want to walk in because he wants to be 6â€™8â€? for a day. Some of Bradenâ€™s favorites include the Enderâ€™s Game books, SportsCenter, The Hunger Games movies, all kinds of music, the Miami Heat, pizza, the Nike Outlet, the color red, lions (favorite animal), chocolate chip ice cream, celebrity Selena Gomez and P.E. with Mrs. Childress and Mr. Burzecott. He loves to hate the West Hancock Eagles. Braden is very into sports. He has been involved in football, basketball, soccer, track and baseball (and youth group, too). His favorite childhood memory is getting free tickets to a Timberwolves vs. Bucks game for having alopecia areata, and he thinks he looks like the NBA player Charlie Villanueva. His favorite quote is by Michael Jordan: â€œIâ€™ve failed over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.â€? Bradenâ€™s favorite high school memory is making a one-handed diving catch during a football game against East Sac, and the achievement he is most proud of is being named a first team All-District linebacker, kicker and punter his senior year. What he will most miss about high school is all of the amazing coaches he has had. A fun fact about Braden is that he has softer legs than most women. His hobbies include reading, playing sports games, hanging out with his dog Sammy and, his favorite, sleeping. His favorite parts of his senior year have been the athletics and the friends he has made from Ventura. If he could change one thing about himself, it would be to have his hair back. Bradenâ€™s biggest pet peeve is people taking his hat off. His nervous habit is stretching and cracking his fingers. After high school Braden is looking forward to having a little more freedom than he does now. His future plans include going to college, studying athletic training and playing football. The best advice he has been given this year stemmed from when his great grandma passed away on Feb. 3 and he had a game the next night. Someone told him to play for her. To play hard and with passion for her. Braden offers this advice to underclassman: â€œDo not, I repeat, do not procrastinate. Listen well in class. Get to bed at a decent time and come to school ready to learn.â€œ

Stellar Industries says â€œthanksâ€? to city By Rebecca Peter The City of Garner received a â€œthank youâ€? from one of the communityâ€™s major employers. David A. Backus, Chief Financial Officer at Stellar Industries, Inc., recently reported to the city council that the company paid off $2.5 million in Industrial Revenue Bonds (IRB) eight months early. Backus and Stellar President Dave Zrostlik first approached the council on June 12, 2007 to discuss the companyâ€™s request that the City of Garner issue Industrial Revenue Bonds for a Stellar growth initiative. The council passed a resolution approving Stellarâ€™s request for a $2.5 million IRB. The Iowa Finance Authority approved the issuance of the bonds on July 23, 2007. Stellar closed the transaction on October 3, 2007. The seven-year bonds financed expansion of the 740 N. State facility (the American Eagle building) and the purchase of a laser cutting center and other machine tools including a robotic welding center, Backus said. There was no cost to the City of Garner for this transaction. â€œSince that time Stellar has increased its Garner based employment by almost 25 percent. We have also added
to our west building twice, adding over 72,000 square feet of floor space and $4 million of additional production equipment in these additions. We have also purchased three additional parcels adjacent to our facility used for production support,â€? Backus said. Backus presented the council a signed photo of the Garner employees at Stellar as a thank you. â€œYour continued support has enabled us to become a truly â€˜Stellarâ€™ company that is happy to call Garner, Iowa home,â€? he said. â€œHopefully we will continue to grow and prosper in a community that appreciates a hometown firm and the value of a private-public partnership.â€? â€œAs a city we couldnâ€™t be more pleased to have you as an employer,â€? Mayor Ken Mick responded. Council member Deb Schmidt said Stellar Industries is an outstanding community supporter. The meeting included acceptance of the Garner Golf Course Foundationâ€™s proposed fees and rates for the 2014 season at the Garner Golf Course. The purchase of a new mower for the golf course for $14,718.96 from Dougâ€™s Small Engine was approved. The council reviewed estimates for one large standby generator for the wa-
ter treatment plant and Well #3, versus two smaller generators. Preliminary estimates from Veenstra & Kimm have cost to install one generator at $134,090 and the cost for two smaller generators at $159,390. Veenstra & Kimm is of the opinion that it would be in the cityâ€™s best interest in the short term (initial cost) and long term (maintenance and on-going utility bills) to install one generator set to serve both locations, Tim Moreau, V&K engineer said in a memo to the city. The council opted to go with one generator, as recommended by V&K. V&K will set up specs to accept bids on the generator. In other matters, Randy Lansing, city administrator, said an inventory of ash trees in the street right-of-way in Garner will be taken in anticipation of the arrival of the Emerald Ash Borer within the next year or two. The Emerald Ash Borer has officially been identified in Allamake, Black Hawk, Cedar, Des Moines, Jefferson and Union Counties. The Department of Natural Resources issued a statewide quarantine restricting the movement of hardwood firewood, ash logs, wood chips, and ash tree nursery stock out of Iowa into non-quarantined areas of other states.
By Rebecca Peter VENTURA - The Ventura City Council is in the process of creating a city administrator position. On Feb. 10 meeting, attorney Mike Moeller presented the council a draft of an ordinance to create a city administrator position and reviewed specifics of the job. The council is expected to have first reading of the proposed city administrator ordinance at the Feb. 24 meeting. Mayor Art Tesar said the council is looking to add the title of city administrator to that of the city clerk. Else Taylor currently serves as Ventura City Clerk. â€œWhat weâ€™ve done is weâ€™ll have a city administrator/city clerk,â€? said Tesar. â€œWe have to have a city clerk by law. She does the functions of the city administrator, too.â€? In other business, Ventura Landfill
George Simpson explained the changes included in the second amendment of the 28E Agreement with the Cerro Gordo County Area Solid Waste Agency. Simpson siaid that it mainly involved revisions to the weighted vote and provisions regarding financial pay out when a member community ceases the partnership. The council unanimously approved the amendment. The council made two appointments. Council member Kristie Meints will represent the City of Ventura on the Cerro Gordo E911 Board. Doug Phinney was appointed as the alternate. Public works director Bill Bredlow reported on the deficiencies regarding the electric motor that runs the well pump. Rebuilding the old one would run $2,000 and replacing it would cost $4,000, Bredlow said.
The council advised Bredlow to obtain prices for a new motor. Bredlow also informed the council on the list of properties with frozen water service lines. He reported on a list of repair items for the street sweeper and suggested an in house repair alternative, verses having to transport the sweeper to Des Moines for repairs. Councilman Brian Vaage presented the Library Key Policy and the terms on who gets access to the library. The policy states that the fire department and city maintenance department would get a key upon signature of the policy and acknowledgement of the terms.

audience for these monthly programs is elementary-age children accompanied by an adult/guardian. The goal is to provide a natural area and guidance for parents and their children to get exercise and experience nature.
SURVEY from page 1 Rapids. Questions will cover topics such as: employment status, current and desired wages, current and desired benefits, education level, and type of occupation. Survey results are then applied to demographic data to determine the total potential labor force of the laborshed area, as well as various labor force characteristics. The survey callers will not be asking individuals for any identifiable information such as: name, social security number, or date of birth. To determine the Laborshed area for Hancock County, letters will be sent to the employers in the County asking that
they provide the Study with aggregate counts of their employeesâ€™ residential ZIP codes. This is based on the place of residence of individuals commuting into the County for employment. This reporting will provide an understanding of where each communityâ€™s work force resides. The results for this Laborshed analysis will be available at www.iowaworkforce.org/lmi/labsur/index.html. If you have any question about the Laborshed employment study project, please telephone Ryan Murphy at 515-281-7505 or e-mail Ed Berg at email@example.com
