NIC moves toward forming super conference

A depiction of the south side of the proposed new public safety center in Forest City.

County officials address public on new safety center Public forums were held across Winnebago County over the last two weeks on the proposed construction of a new $5.25 million public safety center in Forest City. The meetings were held in advance of a special bond election this Tuesday, Mar. 4, on funding for the project. There was a sparse turnout for the meeting held last Monday night in Buffalo Center, which was led by County Supervisor Terry Durby. Durby started off the meeting with a presentation on the proposed facility, which the county has been investigating for about a year and a half. He says the state jail inspector, Delbert Longley, has cited the current facility for numerous deficiencies, and while he has praised the sheriff’s department for doing a good job with what they have to work with, Longley warned that he would have to shut down the facility if the problems are not fixed. The size of the current law enforcement center is the biggest hurdle in addressing the inspector’s concerns, as more space is needed to house and separate jail inmates.

North Iowa Betterment will host its third annual Winter Gala this Saturday, March 8 with social hour beginning at 6 p.m. and dinner, auction and entertainment starting at 7 p.m.

for scheduling. If the school boards approve the plan, the new super conference would be established beginning in the fall of 2015. Both conferences currently have eight schools, but the North Iowa Conference is set to expand this fall, with the addition of Bishop Garrigan, Eagle Grove and North Union. Meanwhile, Riceville is planning to exit the Corn Bowl Conference, leaving a total of 18 schools interested in the proposed super conference. These 18 schools include: Belmond-Klemme, Bishop Garrigan,

Central Springs, Eagle Grove, Forest City, Garner-Hayfield/Ventura, Lake Mills, Newman Catholic, Nashua-Plainfield, North Butler, North Iowa, Northwood-Kensett, North Union, Osage, Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock, St. Ansgar, West Fork and West Hancock. The superintendents hope that in forming a super conference, they’ll be able to provide new opportunities for students beyond athletics. “I am excited to see our conference being progressive and lookcontinued on page 10

There are also issues with inmates having to be moved through less secure areas due to the layout of the building, and Sheriff Dave Peterson says there have been at least six inmates who have escaped the jail since 1977. There are also mold and asbestos issues with the 80-year-old building, which has about 8,000 sq. ft. of floor space. A committee made up of 21 rep-

The school boards of the North Iowa Conference and the neighboring Corn Bowl Conference will decide this month if they wish to team up to form a new athletic “super conference�. The superintendents of the schools in both conferences met last Tuesday, Feb. 25, to discuss possibility, with the goal of creating long term partnerships and stability for all districts involved. The superintendents reached a consensus that they would like to combine to form a two-division conference, while allowing for some flexibility

resentatives from throughout the county spent about a year reviewing options before recommending a new facility be built. The proposed new public safety center would be 20,000 sq. ft. and would house not just a jail but also the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office, E911 dispatch, Emergency Management personnel, and possibly the Forest City Police Dept. continued on page 10

It’s a fairytale with a fun twist and a good lesson in being proud of who you are. Stars of the production include Caleb Ricke as Shrek, right, and Jami Goetz as Donkey. Tickets go on sale Monday, Mar. 10 at the school.


OPINION

10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, March 4, 2004 Yes, the eggs are green and yes, Tuesday, March 2, 2004 was the one hundredth birthday of Ted Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Students, staff and faculty at North Iowa Elementary spent the day celebrating with many fun activities. Elementary students at the North Iowa Elementary School may want to find those lost quarters in the sofa or shake out a couple of dollars from their piggy bank before Wednesday, March 17 and take advantage of Save with the Supe. Supt. and Elementary Principal Larry D. Hill has pledged

&DSLWRO+LJKOLJKWV %\5HSUHVHQWDWLYH7HGG*DVVPDQ ,RZD+RXVH'LVWULFW WHGGJDVVPDQ#OHJLVLRZDJRY A number of bills have been passed out of the house this week. One of those bills dealt with human trafficking. There has been an uptick in the number of women, even girls as young as 12, caught in the prostitution trade. Usually a pimp will take the young lady from hotel room to hotel room, from city to city. On Wednesday the house passed a bill dealing with this type of activity. If the woman is younger than age 18 the county attorney can refer her to the DHS who in turn could place the woman in a state agency or even a foster home. Another aspect of the bill would increase the penalty for the pimp from a class D felony to a class C felony. The law would remain as is for those over the age of 18. The pimp would also have to register as a tier one sex offender. At the beginning of the session I signed onto a bill that was similar to this one with one of my Democrat colleagues. We are taking a step towards making this activity more difficult with greater penalty for those doing the trafficking. This week the House passed House File 2253 which toughens penalties for those convicted of crimes against children, specifically kidnapping. This bill was generated after last summer’s kidnapping of Kathlynn Shepard and Desi Hughes which resulted in the murder of Shepard, who was 15. The bill makes the crime of kidnapping a child 15 or under a class B felony

and lengthens prison time for those who are convicted of this crime. In the Shepard case, the murderer was a convicted child kidnapper who was freed due to good behavior. This bill would have ensured he stayed in prison. Keeping Iowa’s children safe from harm is one of my priorities. “While I am deeply saddened by the loss of Kathlynn Shepard and the trauma suffered by Desi Hughes, I am hopeful this measure will prevent this horrific situation from ever happening again.� I voted in the affirmative on this bill and it passed the house 94 to 3 and has been sent to the senate for their consideration. Thank you to all my constituents in District 7 for allowing me to serve as your representative in Des Moines. The challenges are many but the rewards are great when I can help out in even the smallest of ways. Please feel free to contact me with any comments or concerns about legislation coming forth. Thank you again and have a great week. Rep. Gassman is on the Education, Environmental Protection, Judiciary, and Local Government Committees, and serves as the Vice Chair of the Joint Administration and Regulation Appropriations Subcommittee.

GHQQLVJXWK#OHJLVLRZDJRY Returning to the Iowa Senate this week, it was understood we would be casting votes on dozens of bills. The first funnel ended Friday, and Senators attended scores of subcommittee and committee meetings in an attempt to get bills moving before the self-imposed funnel deadline. The Senate took up more than 60 bills this week, with the overwhelming majority of the proposed legislation receiving broad, bipartisan support. The topics ranged from a bill creating a Lyme disease task force to enhancing penalties for those convicted of kidnapping a child. Floor work should remain steady for the coming weeks. This week, the only bills the Senate could debate were those passed out of our respective committees. For the next two weeks, debate should continue to be time-consuming as we work toward the second funnel. That deadline is March 14. Parents go to great lengths to protect their children. Unfortunately, as the Kathlynn Shepard case taught us, our children are vulnerable to tragic crimes. Shepard of Dayton was kidnapped and murdered May 20, 2013, after getting off a school bus. Kathlynn’s parents urged lawmakers to increase penalties and oversight for sex offenders who attack children. On Tuesday, Michael and Denise Shepard saw their vision become a reality when the Iowa Senate unanimously passed Senate File 2201. I proudly supported this bill as it adds kidnapping a child 17 years old and younger to the definition of second degree kidnapping. This would make the crime a class “B� felony. The proposed legislation also makes the second count of third degree kidnapping a class “B� felony. The suspect in Kathlynn Shepard’s kidnapping and murder was sentenced to 41 years in prison on a previous kidnapping charge in 1991. Michael Klunder was convicted in 1991 of three kidnappings in two days. Two of his victims were threeyear-old children. Klunder was released in 2011, after serving 19 years in prison. By making this fix in the Iowa Code and increasing penalties for kidnapping a juvenile, we will keep those likely to reoffend in jail for longer sentences. I was recently asked by a business owner why I do not support a gas tax increase. He reminded me the Governor’s bipartisan task force recommended more money must be spent on roads and bridges to protect

our infrastructure. He also stated the road tax is a user fee and constitutionally protected so that all funds must be used on roads. My response was everyone wants to fix our roads; we just disagree on how to fund them. I suggested we use some of the dollars we have in the General Fund now. The surplus is an overcollection of taxes and should either be returned to the taxpayer or used to reduce future tax increases. I can support a gas tax increase once those things have been done or as a part of a package that includes tax cuts. I have co-sponsored two bills that transfer General Fund dollars to the Road Use Tax Fund, one for 2 percent of the General Fund and one for $200 million. The business owner responded he also hates taxes and finds it hard to believe he is promoting a tax that would cost him roughly $15,000 per year. He then stated that he would recoup his costs in reduced vehicle repairs and routes that were shortened due to bridge repairs. He asked why those excess dollars in the General Fund were burning a hole in my pocket. A saving account is good insurance. Those are good thoughts. However, all of our rainy day funds are full and we cannot keep from spending the surplus. I sit on a budget committee where I have seen a request for a status quo budget challenged by a Democrat asking “Isn’t there something your department has always dreamed of doing? We want to give you more money.� As long as there are any unspent dollars in our General Fund there will be people who want it spent immediately. I would rather see those dollars go toward improving our roads than used to expand government bureaucracy. I feel that we often use up all of our funds on the less significant, and then declare that we must raise taxes to provide for the essential. I am not willing to give up this battle against bigger government without a fight. The response from the business owner was, “I appreciate your response and feel your pain. I certainly cannot find disagreement in that statement.� Let’s use the funds we already have to fund our roads! Thomas Jefferson said, “When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.� Thanks for the opportunity to serve you in District 4.

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!

Two Forest City Indians made it to the State wrestling semifinals this February for the first time since 1989. Senior Tyler Putney capped off his wrestling career on Saturday, Feb. 22, by taking the State Title at 285 pounds in Class 2A. Meanwhile, the Indianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other qualifier, Beau Sorenson, climbed the rankings to a sixth place finish at 160 pounds at State during his first appearance in the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a great weekend for Forest City Wrestling!â&#x20AC;? remarked Indians Head Coach Steve Staudt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two state qualifiers - two state placers.â&#x20AC;? Staudt says Sorenson got a tough draw in the first round, as he faced fifth ranked Dylon Vanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Hof from Sioux Center, who went into the tournament with a 37-0 record. Sorenson rose to the occasion, as he got four takedowns to win a 9-4 decision. In the quarterfinals, Sorenson pinned Tayler Pettit of Creston in 2:36. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beau wrestled another great match, staying aggressive and dominating the match,â&#x20AC;? said Staudt. In the semifinals, Sorenson ran into fourth ranked Jacob Holschlag from Union, as he lost by a tech fall, 16-0. He faced Jake Voss from West Delaware in the consolation semifinals, where he lost by fall in 1:50. Sorenson would wrestle one more time in the fifth place match, where he faced Alex Oswald from Webster City for the third time this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beau was the aggressor the entire match, but he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to finish takedowns in bounds,â&#x20AC;? said Staudt. The match went into overtime, where Sorenson lost, 3-1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, Beau had a great tourney,â&#x20AC;? said Staudt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He made it to the semifinals to guarantee himself a medal and then tried working his way up the podium. He ended his great season at 45-11 and is already back in the weight room with goal of being a state champ next year.â&#x20AC;? Putney opened the tournament with a pin over Nathan Heath of ADM-Adel in 3:32 in the first round. He followed up with a major decision over Greg Palma of Boyden Hull-Rock Valley in the quarterfinals, 8-0. Putney then wrestled Logan Linderbaum of Solon in the semifinals, winning a 3-1 decision. In the finals, Putney faced Mario PeĂąa of Hampton-Dumont for the fourth time this season. After winning two of those prior matches in an ultimate tie breaker, history repeated itself on Saturday, as Putney won 3-2 in the ultimate tie breaker after wrestling for eight and a half minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both boys did an outstanding job,â&#x20AC;? said Staudt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stay focused on the next match they had and wrestled their style. They pushed the pace and went to war out there. Beau was disappointed in his finish, but the coaching staff is proud as heck of his accomplishments this season and down at state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tyler wrapped up a great senior season, going 49-4 and avenging two of his losses during the season,â&#x20AC;? said Staudt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both boys are examples of what our younger wrestlers

Pizzas bring in $2,000 for Youth Football The North Iowa Youth Football program raised about $2,000 this February through a fundraiser held in conjunction with Godfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza. The kids sold nearly 500 pizzas, which they put together themselves with the help of parents and volunteers. Godfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provided the ingredients, which 37 helpers combined to make the takeand-bake pizzas on Saturday, Feb. 22 in the North Iowa school commons. The money raised will go toward the Youth Football playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; registration fees, which pay for everything from equipment to referees.

The plan is to leave opportunities for non-conference games, as well as cross-over games between the two divisions.

conference. The North Iowa School Board plans to review the matter during its regular meeting next Monday, Mar. 10, at 6 p.m. in the school commons.

County officials address public on new safety center continued from page 1 Durby says a sharing agreement with the City of Forest City canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be completed before the bond referendum is approved, but the size of the facility can be reduced if an agreement is not reached. He estimates the cost to include administrative space for the Forest City Police Dept. to be about 6.8% of the current project cost. Currently, Durby says the county does not have adequate jail space to house all of its inmates, and if the jail closes, it will cost an estimated $4.2 million to house inmates outside the county over the next 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we do nothing, our tax revenue will go to another county,â&#x20AC;? said Durby. He said a study by the South Iowa Crime Commission showed the county currently needs a 12-15 bed jail, with a projected need for 22 beds in the next 15 years. Durby and Peterson took questions from the public following the presentation, and Gary Garst of Buffalo Center asked why a site in Forest City was chosen over a site in Thompson. In particular, he asked why the vacant school building in Thompson wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chosen. Garst said that, in his view, a central location in the county would make more sense. Durby said that, while the existing school structure could make for good office space, a new jail facility would still need to be built if that site in Thompson were chosen. Regarding a central location, Peterson said that most of the crimes in Winnebago County are committed in the eastern portion of the county, and he has deputies patrolling the entire county. Durby said the Forest City site, located along Highway 69, was chosen from among 20 possible sites in the county. Advantages he listed for the location include proximity to the Forest City paramedics, ambulance, police department and fire department, as well as primary highway access to the entrance and exit of the facility. Polls were set to close at 8 p.m. Tuesday for the special election, with local polling places including the Heritage Town Center in Buffalo Center, the Thompson Public Library and Rake City Hall.
