Corwith-Wesley to pursue dissolution By Rebecca Peter CORWITH - The Corwith-Wesley School board has voted to pursue dissolution of the school district, effective beginning with the 2015-16 school year. Corwith-Wesley and the LuVerne school districts have been whole grade sharing partners since 1984-85. The two boards of education initially intended to pursue a whole grade sharing arrangement with Algona School District. The proposal included closing the building at Corwith and have CWL grades 7-12 attend school at Algona, while keeping a PreK-6 elementary open at LuVerne. A letter from the Corwith-Wesley Board of Education to school district

patrons said that Corwith-Wesley CSD appeared before the School Budget Review Committee (SBRC) this year and in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The SBRC has made it very clear to the district that a better option than whole grade sharing exists, and that option is dissolution,â&#x20AC;? the letter reads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The SBRC has stated that CorwithWesley is not a viable district when it does not actually educate any students. Chapter 6 of the Code of Iowa fully explains this dissolution process; the entirety of Chapter 6 can be found at the Iowa Department of Education website. In essence, dissolution means the district will no longer exist, the district property will be portioned to contiguous districts, the debts and

By Rebecca Peter A number of capital improvements projects are in the works for the City of Garner for the 2014-15 budget year. The public hearing for the proposed $5.5 million city budget will be held 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 11, in the council chambers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The City of Garnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed FY15 budget projects $5,549,290 in income and $5,593,654 in expenses,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Lansing, city administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The $44,364 difference will be covered by reserve funds on hand.â&#x20AC;? The city property tax levy will stay the same at $13.23767 per $1,000 valuation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxable value did increase 5.6 percent between FY14 and FY15 from $89,924,955 to $95,246,296, which will bring in about $40,000 more for the general fund over last year,â&#x20AC;? Lansing said. The increase is due to new construction and growth coming on to the tax rolls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city is in good financial shape,â&#x20AC;? said Lansing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fairly routine budget year. We have three projects n the works: the sludge lagoon storage project at the treatment plant; completion of the 2013 street and utility project; and storm sewer intake projects at various locations in the city.â&#x20AC;? Lansing said the proposed budget contains several projects: â&#x20AC;˘A $367,000 housing rehabilitation program to rehabilitate ten owneroccupied houses; â&#x20AC;˘$900,000 for half of a library remodeling/addition project. (The other $900,000 will be in FY16.) â&#x20AC;˘$475,784 for half of a $751,567 downtown revitalization project to renovate storefront facades.

Grassleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provision more clearly defined who are eligible for farm program payments. Three of the four Senate conferees were from Southern agricultural states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like my cap and took the whole thing out.

The senator favors a constitutional amendment requiring a federal balanced budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a taxpayer problem. We have a spending problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;˘EPA regulations: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This president is committed to shut down coal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad and not right, and it will affect us in rural Iowa. Eighty percent of the electricity generated by the RECs is by coal. Particularly in agriculture if you raise the cost of energy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very costly for rural Americans.â&#x20AC;? Other topics were the Keystone pipeline, road tax, raising the minimum wage, and immigration.

Turn your clocks forward one hour at midnight,

By Rebecca Peter GARNER - Congressional approval ratings, Benghazi, the Affordable Health Care Act, and the Farm Bill were among the topics covered during discussion between Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and employees at Stellar Industries in Garner, recently. Grassley is on his annual tour of all 99 Iowa counties. He was given a tour of Stellar Industries prior to meeting with employees for an informal question and answer session. He noted that a recent poll shows Congress has an 81 percent disapproval rating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 percent approval of Congress,â&#x20AC;? Grassley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonder if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even that high.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘Benghazi attack: A question early in the session was about the September 2012 attack on an U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and injured four Americans and seven Libyans. The question was asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will we ever get to the bottom line of what really took place?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will be after this president leaves office, quite frankly,â&#x20AC;? Grassley said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be able get more information. We have two committees looking into it but

â&#x20AC;˘General Government - $238,420. The general government category includes the city administrator, mayor, city council, city clerk, and boards and commission expense, legal services, and municipal building operations. The city also budgeted $15,000 for golf course capital equipment expenditures. â&#x20AC;˘Debt Service - $476,193. Debt service includes the bonds for the aquatic center and the rec center. â&#x20AC;˘Capital projects - $1,308,099. Capital projects for FY15 include $900,000 for library renovation project, downtown revitalization (façade improvements), $32,000 for the Garner Golf Course; and $65,000 for the on-going sidewalk improvement project. February 25 meeting In addition to setting the date for the city budget hearing, the Feb. 25 Garner City Council meeting also included the following: â&#x20AC;˘Reviewed the golf course insurance policy and statement of fund balances for the Garner Golf Course with Bill Paulus and Doug Cottington of the Garner Golf Course Foundation. â&#x20AC;˘Approved an application for a $10,000 grant for improvement for Reichardt Park. â&#x20AC;˘Amended the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personnel policy in regard to filling vacancies. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy is to fill vacancies at all levels of city employment with the most qualified individual for the position when a vacancy occurs. Appointment and promotion to position are based on qualifications of the applicant. Employees seeking promotion shall be expected to meet the minimum qualifications for the position they seek.

Several Britt residents have found themselves without water in recent weeks due to the bitterly cold conditions. Britt City Clerk Jeanie Purvis said the city is aware of as many as a dozen homes that have reported having frozen pipes, which have consequently left them without running water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were aware of probably 10 to 12 homes without water last week,â&#x20AC;? said Purvis. Purvis said that number may have since changed as water is restored to the homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them, I am sure have gotten water service back, she said. Purvis said some homeowners have contacted city officials to inquire about what can be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, those water lines are private lines into the homes and there is nothing the city can do,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have happen in the community, but it is not something we can control.â&#x20AC;? Purvis said the city informed residents via newspaper, television and radio to leave a small stream of water flowing from sinks to prevent frozen lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done what we can do to keep people informed,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is good to keep your water running or dripping.â&#x20AC;? Purvis said the problem has not been unique to Britt this winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153; It has been all over the North Iowa area this year,: she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mason City, Northwood, Buffalo Center, they have all had the same problem.â&#x20AC;? The frozen lines do not appear to be localized in one particular neighborhood, Purvis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been all over town,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far they seem pretty isolated, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know until you hear of the next case.â&#x20AC;? The city of Britt has been fortunate, having no broken water mains related to the weather this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was only one, and it was very early on,â&#x20AC;? said Purvis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far everything has been good, but we know it is no fun to have to be without water.â&#x20AC;?

many people are not being screened according to national guidelines. Precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always cause symptoms, especially at first. You could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why having a screening colonoscopy is so important. Symptoms for colorectal cancer may include: â&#x20AC;˘ Blood in or on the stool (bowel movement). â&#x20AC;˘ Stomach pain, aches, or cramps that do not go away. â&#x20AC;˘ Unexplained weight loss. These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having any of these symptoms, the only way to know what is causing them is to see your doctor. If you would like to submit a healthcare question, visit www.trustHCHS. com and select Contact Us at the bottom of the home page or call 641-8435150.

Rayhons Welcomes Social Host Advocates

(DES MOINES) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rep. Henry Rayhons (R-Garner) welcomed members of the Garner Asset Project who were in the Capitol advocating for the state Social Host legislation. Pictured here is Sandy Rayhons (Garner), Courtney Field (Garner), Rep. Henry Rayhons (Garner), Ellie Meyers (Garner), Zac Schold (Garner), and Deb Quintes (Garner).

The Whole Darn Process This past week was â&#x20AC;&#x153;funnel weekâ&#x20AC;?, when all bills that are to be considered on the House and Senate floors must pass out of their perspective committees. Those that do not make it out of committee fall by the wayside, maybe to be redrafted and reconsidered by the new General Assembly next year. Over the next few days, bills that have survived the first funnel will wait to be placed on the debate calendar. During debate, legislators will be looking to see what needs to be amended and what can pass without change. In the push to consider bills before the deadline, many are far from perfect. Often it is said that a bill is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;work in progressâ&#x20AC;?, with the understanding that more work will be done as the process moves on. They will be perfected by amendments when they reach their House or Senate floor for initial debate. Not every bill that passed out of a committee gets debated on the floor. All bills go to the majority leader for consideration. Legislators and advocates will lobby the majority leader trying to move their bills forward for consideration. While no bill will come to the floor without the approval of the majority leader, amendments are another issue. Amendments can be submitted without prior approval, but they must specifically address the bill. Do I think this whole process up to

&DSLWDO5HSRUWV

State Representative Henry Rayhons House District 8 henry.rayhons@legis.state.ia.us / (641)430-2863 now is acceptable? I do. Good bills on important issues will make it to the floor for discussion. Those that are not as vital will be sent back to committee, where they will wait for another session to be considered. It is separating the wheat from the chaff, and only those bills that have importance should be considered. This whole process illustrates just how difficult it is to pass a law, because once a bill moves out of one body, the other has to repeat the entire process. Ideas are easy, but to turn those ideas into successful legislation is difficult. The next deadline will be in less than three week--about eleven working days. Bills that want to continue their path to becoming law need to have passed the House or Senate, and be out of the other chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee by Friday, March 14th. After that date, only the Appropriations and Ways and Means Committees will continue to meet regularly, as bills coming out of these committees are not subject to these deadlines. Through this process, we have al-

ready passed several bills out of the House including the Kathlynn Shepherd Bill, HF2235, which boosts penalties for kidnapping of children aged 15 and younger to up to 25 years and eliminates the possibility for early released under â&#x20AC;&#x153;earned timeâ&#x20AC;? laws for offenders who commit violent or sexual felonies against children 15 or younger. My Natural Resources Committee wrapped up our committee work the week of February 21. We had several small bills this year, but nothing earth shattering. Our main bill concerned the four-wheel, two and four seated recreational vehicles that has been in the works for some time. We also hosted several speakers who spoke on issues regarding Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural resources including an update from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. 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. henry.rayhons@legis. iowa.gov

structure. 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 over-collection 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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there something your department has always dreamed of doing? We want to give you more money.â&#x20AC;? 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, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate your response and feel your pain. I certainly cannot find disagreement in that statement.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use the funds we already have to fund our roads!

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. Kathlynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? felony. The proposed legislation also makes the second count of third degree kidnapping a class â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? felony. The suspect in Kathlynn Shepardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 three-year-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 Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bipartisan task force recommended more money must be spent on roads and bridges to protect our infra-

QUESTION: I have a co-worker who was just diagnosed with Colon Cancer, what are the symptoms I should be looking for to know if I should get screened? ANSWER by: Harry Condoleon, DO, General Surgeon, performs outpatient surgical procedures for Hancock County Health System patients at Hancock County Memorial Hospital and Garner Medical Clinic. Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from it. The risk of getting colorectal cancer increases with age. More than 90% of cases occur in people who are 50 years old or older. Colorectal cancer screening does saves lives, but unfortunately

our most basic assumptions about the Parthenon and the ancient Athenians. Beginning with the natural environment and its rich mythic associations, she re-creates the development of the Acropolisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Sacred Rock at the heart of the city-stateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from its prehistoric origins to its Periklean glory days as a constellation of temples among which the Parthenon stood supreme. Frankl, Viktor E.; Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Search For Meaning - Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Sixsmith, Marin; Philomena - When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fallen woman.â&#x20AC;? Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him. Meck, Su; I Forgot To Remember In 1988 Su Meck was twenty-two and married with two children when a ceiling fan in her kitchen fell and struck her on the head, leaving her with a traumatic brain injury that erased all her memories of her life up to that point. Although her body healed rapidly, her memories never returned. Yet after just three weeks in the hospital, Su was released and once again charged with the care of two toddlers and a busy household. DeFelice, Jim; Code Name Johnny Walker - In this unforgettable memoir, the Navy SEALsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most trusted translatorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a man who is credited with saving countless American lives and became a legend in the special-ops communityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; tells his inspiring story for the first time.

Caitlin Hanson

by Olivia Hackbarth

Being in college and making new memories and friends is what Caitlin Hanson is looking most forward to after high school. Caitlin Hanson, who was born on July 19, 1996, is the daughter of Jason and Patti Hanson; she has two younger brothers, Jace and Blaine. She has a number of pets including dogs Hank, Bandit, Selena and Sam and cats Chevy, Scooter and Jax. Her favorite childhood memory is going for rides in the semi with her grandpa. A fun fact about Caitlin is that her right eye crosses without her contacts or glasses on. Some of Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorites include the television show One Tree Hill, the movie Fast Five, the book Two Kisses for Maddy, rooting for Iowa State, listening to country music and the color bright blue. She enjoys eating walking tacos, and her favorite ice cream flavor is cookies and cream. Her favorite celebrity crush is Luke Bryan, and going to his concert is her favorite high school memory. The number one thing on Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bucket list is to go to the Bahamas and

swim with dolphins. Her favorite quote is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the best moments in life are the ones you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell anyone about.â&#x20AC;? If she could change anything about herself, it would be to be taller and have longer arms. Her biggest pet peeve is when peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jeans are not long enough and stop right at their ankles. Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite part about her senior year has been taking cadet teaching with Mrs. Greiman, and she will miss taking classes with Mrs. Greiman most about high school. Her advice to underclassmen is donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let bullying hold you back; it will make you stronger and a better person in the end. Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school achievement that she is most proud of is that she is graduating. Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nervous habit is biting her lip and getting kind of shaky. The best advice she has been given this year is to not give up and go after her dream. She enjoys being outdoors, babysitting and taking pictures. She was involved in basketball, volleyball and dance during high school. Caitlin plans to attend Hawkeye Community College to become an occupational therapy assistant.

Garret Dean Foster by Mallory Johnson Green Bay Packers fan Garret Dean Foster loves this quote by their legendary coach, Vince Lombardi: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game. They just ran out of time.â&#x20AC;? Garret was born on June 3, 1996, and his family includes his parents Brandee and Tony Henderson and siblings Zane and Mackenzie Henderson and Morgan Westendorf. Garret also has four pets: Furball, Speckles, Bear and Bugsy. Some of Garretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorites include the music group Matchbox 20, the book The Lightning Thief, tacos, gorillas, the color turquoise, the movie Riddick, the television show Castle, GameStop, banana ice cream and the high school course CAD II. As a Packers fan, he loves to hate the Minnesota Vikings. Garretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrity crush is Angelina Jolie. A fun fact about Garret is that he can rap to music. Garretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hobbies include playing video games and watching movies. The number one thing on his

bucket list is to drive a 1964 GT 500, and if he could change one thing about himself, it would be his goofiness.

NIC and CBC Agree to Proceed with New Super Conference West Hancock wraps up wrestling season With a goal of creating long term Algona Garrigan, Eagle Grove, and conference options. This was imporpartnerships and stability, superintendents from the Corn Bowl Conference and North Iowa Conference met Tuesday morning to discuss the creation of a new super conference made up of 18 school districts from across the top of Iowa. The concept has been in discussion mode for a little over a year, but it took less than two hours for the superintendents of both conferences to reach consensus that a 2-division concept with some flexibility for scheduling was the go-ahead plan. Pending approval of the local school boards, the new super conference of 18 schools will take effect fall of the 20152016 school year. Although this new union may be referred to as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;athletic conferenceâ&#x20AC;?, it is the intent of the superintendents to create more opportunities for combined fine arts activities and student leadership events as well. Districts in the 2015-2016 merger include Algona Garrigan, Belmond-Klemme, 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. Changes are already in place to the 8-school NIC beginning fall of 2014 with the addition of three new partners

North Union. Riceville will no longer remain a member of the current 8-school Corn Bowl Conference, having submitted a request to opt out earlier this year. The athletic directors from each school are scheduled to attend a joint meeting on March 5 to review the 2-division concept, discuss important details, and begin the scheduling and contracting of games and events. The super conference concept will allow for some cross-over games within the 18 schools, and several â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of

tant to the athletic directors not only for scheduling, but for keeping relationships with schools played in the past. A list of ideas for a possible new name for the conference was generated at the meeting, but it was determined that students from each of the schools should be tapped for their suggestions as well. At some point in the future, a new name will be offered for approval by the 18 superintendents. The next step in the process is for the 18 local school boards to approve a resolution at their March meeting calling for the creation of the merger.

Road Use Tax resolution At the Feb. 24 meeting, supervisors supported a resolution from the Iowa State Association of County Supervisors calling for an increase in the State of Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Use Tax Fund. The fuel tax has not been significantly increased since 1989 while maintenance and construction costs have more than doubled, according to the Association. The resolution calls for the following: An increase in the state fuel tax rates across the board by 10 cents over a period of no less than three years and resulting in an estimated $184 million to $230 million in additional annual revenue. Increase the fee for new registration from 5 to 6 percent, resulting in an estimated $50 million in additional revenue. Allocate the new funding to go to the TIME-21 Fund (up to a $225 million cap). Remaining new funding should be distributed consistent with the Road Use Tax Funding distribution formula. Hancock County Engineer Bill Waddingham said a significant portion of the local secondary road budget receives state Road Use Tax funding. Hancock County has $2.8 million in road use tax funds budgeted for secondary road construction projects for the current fiscal year. The county also has budgeted $763,286 in Farm-to-Market funds for various road projects for FY14. Farmto-Market funds also come from road use tax, but are administered by the Department of Transportation in Ames.a

Emerald Ash Borer: In Iowaâ&#x20AC;ŚNow what? MASON CITY - The emerald ash borer (EAB) is a small beetle that kills all species of ash trees, including green, white, black and blue. This federally regulated insect has been found in eight Iowa counties and has the potential to spread across the state. A public meeting directed toward homeowners and other concerned citizens will be held at 6:30-8 p.m. on March 25 at the Lime Creek Nature Center, 3501 Lime Creek Rd., Mason City, to provide information concerning the presence of emerald ash borer (EAB) in Iowa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This meeting is designed to provide helpful, usable information to prepare

for one of the most destructive insects to hit the urban forest in decades,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Shour, Iowa State University Extension & Outreach Entomologist. The meetings will be presented by a panel of Experts: Greg Heidebrink and Jason Walker, Iowa Department of Natural Resources District Foresters; Mike Kintner EAB Outreach and Regulatory Coordinator with Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship; Mark Shour Iowa State University Extension & Outreach Entomologist; Trivon Feeley, Iowa Department of Natural Resources Forest

The map and application to feed images to the map were created in-house by Iowa DOT staff allowing flexibility to quickly make adjustments to the way images are presented to the public. While the project has been piloted in central Iowa, plow cams will gradually be added throughout the state. The goal is to have coverage over most of Iowa by next winter season.

West Hancock weight room nearly complete By Emilie Jensen Students and athletes at West Hancock High School have a new and updated facility for working on their strength and conditioning. A new weight room has been under construction for several months in a space formerly occupied by family and consumer science classrooms, which has allowed for the addition of more equipment and more room for usage. The $35,000 project has been funded by donations from the Hancock County Foundation, the West Hancock Class of 2013 and alumni and community members, WHHS Principal Jeff Recker said. The new facility has given the weight room and those who use it a permanent home, Stacey Goepel, West Hancockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength and conditioning coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Before we were moving equipment around from season to season,â&#x20AC;? said Goepel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved equipment back and forth between the old weight room and multipurpose room at least twice

Recker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our school really needed that.â&#x20AC;? The new room features several weightlifting stations and benches, new weight racks, and fitness equipment. The room has been in use since late fall, but improvements have continued to be made including a new mat floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been using it 100 percent,â&#x20AC;? said Goepel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new mats went in over Christmas break and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made room for new equipment and removing older equipment as it comes in.â&#x20AC;? Goepel said the new room is nearly double the capacity of the old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have about 1,700 square feet, that is nearly double what we had.â&#x20AC;? More room has also meant more participation, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been averaging quite a few kids,â&#x20AC;? said Goepel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually about 30 to 40 kids, even 50 since we are between seasons.
