Lake City Betterment has new director

New books at J.J. Hands

The J.J. Hands Library in Lohrville presented 73 new books for preschoolers through 5th grade. With the funds raised by the Friends of the Library, the library was able to obtain the books through “The Libri Foundation”. The Libri Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit organization that provides new, quality children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its Books For Children program. Children pictured are (left to right) Audie Walbaum, Ella Cline, Max Hardy, Aaralyn Minnehan, Trayton Minnehan and Honor Miller.

Kelly Hasner to serve as city administrator By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Kelly Hasner is familiar with this area and looks forward to getting back to Iowa as the new Lake City administrator/city clerk, starting March 24. “There are a lot of neat things happening in this community,” Hasner said. He has a varied background, starting as a graphic artist for a tractor supply company, went on to become the executive director of the Sioux City Community Theatre and got a taste for administrative work as the director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Nixa in central Missouri. His wife, Doreen, is a speech pathologist, and she will join him later in Lake City after taking care of some details such as selling their home. They have a grown son, Benjamin, who is currently an estimator at a construction company and a fulltime engineering student at Missouri State University at Springfield. His wife, Cortny, is also a full-time

student. Benjamin and Cortny have a daughter, Lucille, who will have her first birthday in May. Kelly is originally from Clark in Northeast Missouri and moved to South Dakota with his family when he was 15. That’s where he met Doreen. They were classmates in high school. Kelly graduated in 1975 and went to the University of

South Dakota at Vermillion where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. His first order of business will getting up to speed on the operations and finances of the city. He will also be introducing himself to various organizations. “I’m looking forward to getting to know everybody,” he said.

Rockwell City plans community garden The Rockwell City Council discussed plans at the March 3 meeting for a community garden at an empty lot the city owns at the southeast corner of Fifth and South Streets. A grant from MIDAS will pay for a rototiller and installation of a water hydrant for use by participants who will have plots for growing vegetables. Details on plot size and plot assignment will be worked out at a later date.

The only other item on the agenda for the March 3 meeting was a public hearing regarding a $182,500 loan agreement with the Iowa Finance Authority Garden. The zero interest loan will provide starting capital for a major city sewer project. The project will cost $1.1 million and will be expanded to a $1.6 million project if the city is able to obtain a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant.

By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Heather Snyder, the new Lake City Betterment director, and her family provide first-hand testimony that Lake City offers a superior lifestyle over major metropolitan areas. “It was a much-needed relief. Our life in Glendora was very stressful,” Heather said. Both she and her husband, Tony, had a 14-mile commute to work in the Los Angeles area that took an hour and a half each way to travel. They lived in a “tiny house with a giant mortgage” with their daughters Annabelle (now 5) and Madelyn (now 2). Both Heather and Tony grew up in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, Heather in South Pasadena and Tony in Temple City. Heather graduated from South Pasadena High School in 2002. Her freshman year of college included a variety of courses but her dream of studying nursing was out of reach. Even as a straight A honor student, she faced a five-year waiting period for an opening in nursing school. She decided to leave school and enter the workforce. In 2006 Heather Sheldon married Tony Snyder. They shared a desire to live in a less stressful environment and considered various less densely populated areas to move to, one being the town where Tony’s greatgrandfather lived, started a business and raised a family. Charles Snyder started Snyder Implement in the building where Dobson’s is now.

Heather Snyder

Tony’s grandfather, Maurice, and his parents, Jerry and Bonnie, live in California. Heather’s mother, Susan, and her stepfather, Matt, live in California as do Heather’s younger brother and sister, William and Hannah. In September of last year, Heather and Tony and their two daughters moved to Lake City where Tony took a job at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital. Their first Iowa winter, miserable even by Iowa standards, did not dampen the enthusiasm of these Southern California natives. “We looked forward to the seasons. In California, it’s always hot,” Heather said. She acknowledged that the 20 below zero temperature was a bit much for her but Tony took

it as a challenge, deciding to walk to work that day to get the full Iowa winter experience. The girls were thrilled by the snow. Annabelle arrived back in Lake City from Kindergarten in Rockwell City on the bus during the first snowfall she ever experienced, shouting about the snow coming down. “She was in heaven,” Heather said. Heather was a bit reluctant to send the kindergartener to school on the bus at first, but Annabelle insisted that she be allowed to ride with her friends and now gets on the bus every school day without looking back. “This really is a great place to raise kids,” Heather said. On Feb. 1, Heather began as the new Lake City Betterment director, getting a crash course from outgoing director Leah Rosado, who stayed on only a couple of days. Heather expects to stir the pot a bit, advancing some new ideas to promote the town while continuing the many traditional activities. She would also like to see more young people on the Betterment Board, since young families have the most at stake in promoting activities for young people. The first order of business is familiarizing herself with her responsibilities as betterment director. “I’m really looking forward to this,” Heather said.

Contributed by SMCH Over 45 people gathered at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital (SMCH) to attend the March “Lunch Connection” event. The program featured a speaker on “The New World of Quality Health Care - How It Affects You.” Heather Cain, CEO at SMCH, addressed the group, describing how quality health care is moving to a new model of patient care. “At Stewart Memorial Community Hospital we are shifting the focus from high volumes of patients, tests and procedures to giving world class quality of care. Quality care means patients always leave a hospital stay feeling better. That means we’re concentrating on reducing the numbers of hospitalacquired infections, medication errors, falls, and readmissions.” Health care will move away from “sick care” and more to a focus on wellness and prevention. The industry will concentrate on reducing hospitalizations and emergency department visits by increasing wellness screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies and utilizing health coaches to help patients manage chronic illnesses.  Another element to quality health care is using technology in new ways. “SMCH will be implementing a new method of charting patient health histories at the end of March. We will begin using the electronic

reduce costs, and increase the value of the health care provided.” The “Lunch Connection” is held four times at year at Stewart Memorial. The next session will be

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm From Hog Lot to Restaurateurs

Trying to cheat the sun A recent news report challenged the idea that Daylight Savings Time saves energy. The attempt to save energy was a motivation behind establishing DST across America (excluding Arizona which is contrarian and Hawaii which is in the tropics so does not have much seasonal difference in day length), but I’ve long been skeptical that the hour adjustment in our clocks actually saves energy. When DST use became widespread in Europe and North America during the 20th Century, lighting was the major use for electricity, but now lighting is only a small part of electricity use. As the news report pointed out, the extra hour of evening sunlight can encourage activity such as travel by vehicle that uses energy. I’m also skeptical that belief in this rationale is the reason the public tolerates the disruption in our routines every spring and fall. Although we tend to gripe about having to get out of bed an hour earlier starting in March, we quickly get accustomed to the extra hour of sunlight in the evening. We could get out of bed earlier in the spring and summer even if the clocks were not set ahead and start our day well before the start of our work day or school day. Farmers and some other self-employed workers have always adjusted their work days to maximize the use of sunlight hours, regardless of what the clock

says. For the rest of us, the temptation is to stay in bed until the sun is well up if we don’t have to get up. Our annoyance with the whole DST routine is actually worse in the fall when setting the clock back an hour compounds the gloominess of the encroaching winter. Some people advocate having DST year round but that really defeats the purpose of DST. If there were a consensus that we needed to get up an hour earlier all year, that could have been done without changing our clock settings. The calibration of clocks originally meant establishing noon as the time when the sun reached its highest point in the sky, never directly overhead outside the tropics, but increasingly closer to being overhead until the summer solstice in June. This meant that noon became different as a person traveled east or west, about a minute difference every 15 miles at this latitude. Sometimes we hear the comment that cultures that did not have clocks could tell time by the position of the sun, as if this was an uncanny skill. For such cultures, the position of the sun in the sky was time, not some numerical value. This was true for most of our ancestors a couple of centuries back when most of them lived away from ready access to any clock. During the middle of the 19th

century, mass production of pocket timepieces made accurate timekeeping available to the middle class. At the encouragement of railroads, European and North American countries established hour-wide time zones late in the 19th Century. This allowed the creation of timetables for travel that were less confusing than they would be without time zones. Back to the subject of DST, there was a decision in the 1970s to extend DST for the entire year. This was done in an effort to save energy but there wasn’t a sufficient change in energy use to establish that any savings at all occurred. I don’t see how there would be any savings as a result of taking an hour of darkness from the evening and attaching onto the start of the active day. What ended the year round DST were fatal accidents resulting from kids walking to school in the dark. If the DST remained throughout the year, schools would have all eventually started an hour later each day and many businesses would have followed, so we would be back to the pre-DST pattern as far as activity relative to the position of the sun, except our clocks would indicate a different time. We just can’t cheat the darkness of winter, so we might as well take advantage of the sunlight of summer.

A herd of hogs paid for their wedding. So why not have a wedding picture taken with the hogs? Bruce and Laura Blankenfeld, true-blue Iowans from Grinnell, did just that on their wedding day, 38 years ago. Following the wedding, there was a family gathering at Laura’s parents’ farmhouse. Laura was still in her white wedding gown and train, and Bruce was in his white tux. Laura’s father said it was time to do chores. Bruce, a man not afraid to get his hands dirty (and needing a break), jumped at the chance to help. Laura, a farm girl that didn’t back down, hollered, “Wait for me!” The wedding photographer, sensing a photo op, tagged along.

The legal name of the child is K.N.D., Date of Birth-November 29, 2012. The child’s domicile is in relative placement in Lohrville, IA. 2. The names, residences and domiciles of the designated parties are as follows: a. Living parents of the child: mother-Audrey Harwood, a/k/a/ Delaney, whereabouts 525 School St., Apt. 1, Craig, CO 81625, legal father-Troy Harwood, whereabouts 6303 East View Ave., Cedar Rapids, IA 52404.

Petitioner: Tina Meth Farrington, Calhoun County Attorney. e. Person standing in place of the parents of

the child: Cheryl Schmitz, DHS Social Worker II. 3. The parent-child relationship now existing between the child and their parents should be terminated pursuant to Iowa Code Section 232.116(1)(a),(b),(e),(h) and (l) as follows: 232.116(1)(a) That one or more of the parents may voluntarily and intelligently consent to the termination of parental rights and the parentchild relationship and for good cause desire the termination. 232.116(1)(b) There is clear and convincing evidence the child has been abandoned or deserted. 232.116(1)(e) (1) The child has been adjudicated a child in need of assistance pursuant to section 232.96. (2) The child has been removed from the physical custody of the child’s parent for a period of a least six consecutive months. (3) There is clear and convincing evidence that the parents have not maintained significant and meaningful contact with the child during the previous six months and have made no reasonable efforts to resume care of the child despite being given the opportunity to do so. 232.116(1)(h) (1) The child is three years of age or younger. (2) The child has been adjudicated a child in need of assistance pursuant to 232.96. (3) The child has been removed from the physical custody of the child’s parents for at least six months of the last twelve months. (4) There is clear and convincing evidence that the child can not be returned to the custody of the child’s parents as provided in section 232.102 at the present time. 232.116(1)(l) The court finds that all of the following have occurred: (1) The child has been adjudicated a child in need of assistance pursuant to section 232.96 and custody has been transferred from the child’s parents for placement pursuant to section 232.102. (2) The parent has a severe, chronic substance abuse problem and present a danger to self or other as evidence by prior acts. (3) There is clear and convincing evidence that the parent’s prognosis indicates that the child will not be able to be returned to the custody of the parent within reasonable period of time considering the child’s age and need for a permanent home. (4) The mother walked away from this child and his siblings while undergoing treatment at the House of Mercy. The child had a medical appointment for tubes in his ears that had to be rescheduled after the mother left the child. The mother has not stayed in contact with the Department of Human Services concerning her whereabouts or inquired about her children. The mother tested positive for methamphetamines. The mother is not sure who the father of this child is. Paternity testing has eliminated the legal father and one other putative father. Another putative father has not appeared for paternity testing. The mother is not exercising visitation or participating in services. (5) The Department of Human Services has scheduled and held Family Team Meetings. Drug testing has been done on the mother.

The mother was provided in-patient services while at the YWCA and House of Mercy. Family Safety, Risk and Permanency services were provided to the family. Family foster care and relative placement have been provided for the care of the child. The mother was encouraged to participate in substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment. The mother also underwent a parenting assessment. WHEREFORE, the State of Iowa request that the Court enter an Order Terminating the parent-child relationship between K.N.D., the child and Audrey Harwood, a/k/a Delaney, the mother of the child and Troy Harwood, the legal father, and any and all putative fathers and providing such other relief as the Court may seem just.

March, 1944 70 Years Ago All out mobilization of all foodproducing resources in the state! That is the subject of meetings to be held next week in every community in Calhoun County to discuss Iowa’s 1944 food for victory program. March 6 to 11 has been designated throughout Iowa as a Food Front Alert, during which farmers will formulate plans to meet the quotas that call for Iowa to produce onetenth of the nation’s food this year. Authorities have pointed out that 1944 will be the critical year for production of food for victory. With 5 million Americans overseas by July, with longer supply lines, with more liberated people to feed until

they can produce their own food and with more shipping to carry the food to the war theaters, the 1944 season is looked upon as the crucial period on the food front. Everyday Specials – Galvanized Tubs, $1.19; Dish Pans, 65c; Electric Brooders, 200-Chick size, $8.49 — Coast To Coast, Bob Liesch, Owner. At this time when every citizen of Iowa has been asked by its Governor to cooperate in the salvage of used household fats, Mayor L. W. Sievert had pledged his office to cooperate with the local Camp Fire girls in staging a campaign in which housewives of the community will be solicited for waste fats which are vital materials of war. All should remember that 5 pounds of salvaged fat will provide chemicals for a 100-lb. depth bomb charge to fight submarines and that 11 pounds of fat must be salvaged in order to supply necessary rubber for tires for a 2 l/2 ton army truck: it is also used in making drugs which are used so efficiently in saving lives of wounded men. Coffee, Briardale, Lb. 28c, Tall Corn, lb. 21c; Cake Flour, Swansdown, 2 3/4 lb. box, 27c; Raisins, 2 lbs., 24c — Dewey Howe’s Grocery - Phone 45. R. M. Bernau, owner and operator of the Iowa Theatre, last week purchased of Melvin Wilson the two buildings on Main street east of the Iowa Public Service Company’s office where he plans to establish a business to be known as Bernau Processing Plant. Mr. Bernau has purchased through necessary priorities machinery with which to process, clean and grade popcorn, and box popcorn for retailing, principally to theatres for the present, but with the idea of expanding the business for further distribution after the war. “The Holy Way of the Cross” is the theme of the union Holy Week services to be held by the Church of Christ, Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian churches. The first of the series will be held Sunday evening at the Church of Christ when the Rev. J. M. Doms will speak on “Awareness of the Cross.” The choirs from the four churches will render special music. Monday evening at the Baptist Church, the Rev. R. B. Weaklend will preach on “Our

Lord Forsaken.” Tuesday evening, the Rev. A. Pierce Waltz will speak on “Our Lord Condemned,” at the Methodist Church, and Wednesday evening, at the Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Stanley A. Kruschwitz will discourse on the subject “Our Lord Crucified.” FOR SALE Mar. 15th to June 1st the most complete line of outdoor plants in this part of the country.

King Band Concert

of the Green”, and “The Irish Washerwoman”. Special guest soloist will be Bob Patton, baritone, from Gowrie. Mr. Patton attended the University of Northern Iowa before joining the U.S. Air Force Singing Sergeants in Washington, D.C. During his 20year career in the military, Patton soloed with the National Symphony and the Boston and Cincinnati Pops Orchestras. He also performed with the  Washington Civic, Baltimore, Wolf Trap, Northern Virginia and Annapolis opera companies. In 1991 he returned to Gowrie and  became editor and publisher of The Gowrie News, the fourth generation owner of a 110 year-old family business. He recently retired from the newspaper after a 20-year career, but is still very active and much sought-after as a vocalist throughout the Midwest. Mr. Patton will perform three Irish selections with the Band. First will be “That’s An Irish Lullaby (TooRa-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral)” from the Bing Crosby movie Going My Way, followed by the humorous George M. Cohan classic, “Harrigan”, and concluding with everyone’s favorite Irish ballad, “Londonderry Air”. Mr. Patton also will lead the audience in a sing-along of the traditional Irish favorites, “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” and “My Wild Irish Rose”. This concert will close with our national anthem, “The StarSpangled Banner.” In case of inclement weather, the concert will be cancelled.

The second in a series of three winter indoor concerts by the Karl L. King Municipal Band of Fort Dodge will be held on Sunday afternoon, March 16, at the Decker Auditorium on the campus of Iowa Central Community College. There is no admission charge, since these concerts are provided by the City of Fort Dodge. Conductor of the band is Jerrold P. Jimmerson, and the Assistant Conductor is Dr. David Klee. This concert, which will begin at 3:30 p.m., is the band’s traditional Irish Concert in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Many familiar Irish tunes will be performed, including everyone’s favorite, “McNamara’s Band”, as arranged by former conductor Reginald R. Schive. Other Irish selections on the program include “The Emerald Isle” by Dave Black, and “Fantasia on the “Dargason”, from the Second Suite in F Major for Military Band by Gustav Holst. Several march selections will be performed, including “McKinley’s Own” and “Bon Voyage”, both by Karl L. King, along with “The Boys of the Old Brigade” by W. Paris Chambers, and “The Irish Boys” by Bill Wiley. A beautiful medley, “Strains from Erin” by Lucien Cailliet will be the afternoon’s classical highlight. This collection of well-known, traditional Irish folk melodies includes “St. Patrick’s Day”, “Those Endearing Young Charms”, “The Rakes of Mallow”, “Killarney”, “The Last Rose of Summer”, “Wearing

SUNNYVIEW

Several weeks ago an article appeared in the Des Moines Register about “outhouses”. I decided to brighten up the coffee table talk with memories of those years with the residents living here at Sunnyview all shared memories and it was fun! Two other names often used were “backhouses” or “privies” and most were two-seaters. The buildings were generally located near a tree, probably for protection. It was scary as a child to go outside at night! Two residents remembered going with their sister when it was dark. It was not unusual to take a magazine or book with you. One memory was looking in the window to see if the dishes were done before going back inside! Several mentioned the board walk that was laid from the house to the “outhouse”. This was needed to keep your feet clean during rainy or snowy weather. It was hard to stay on that board which was usually narrow. One of the men said he wired their outhouse with a bulb and string-pull when he was around 12 years old to light up the building. That was a rare event. The half-moon found above many doors probably had something to do with ventilation and light. We can’t forget those “outhouses” at the country schools. They sat way back on the school lot, with boys on one side and girls on the other. A very long walk! Sears catalogues were used in the outhouse and one man suggested the red and white corn cob was popular for some. (I think there is more to that story!) Sometimes the last page would be gone when you arrived. I was reminded that the slick catalogue pages were not used. Peach canning season was a joy when all the soft paper wrappers were saved and placed in the outhouse. It was a very cold trip in the winter when you needed to go outside. There was a memory of carrying youngsters out in the middle of the night, or in the rain, when it was needed. Many homes had “chamber pots” for use at night time. Most homemakers were diligent about scrubbing the building every week using the discarded soapy water from the weekly laundry. One of the residents said it was her job to carry a bucket of soapy water

to scrub the toilet seat and floor. Spider webs were always a problem. One lady remembered papering the outhouse with left-over wallpaper used in rooms in their home. This would help insulate the building and add some color. Halloween was a time of year you needed to be alert. Pranksters loved talking about it and on occasion actually moved the small building. They also liked shaking it if a person was inside. Someone remembered moving the building 1½ feet back. Can you picture what might have happened? Some remembered moving the outhouse or tipping it over to clean it out, and then setting the building back in place. A story was told that, years ago on a trip to the Black Hills, they stopped at a gas station. There was an outdoor “privy” and another car had also pulled up. The station attendant told them to watch the excitement. He had a speaker hidden inside the outhouse and when the visitor went in he gave enough time before speaking into a microphone – “Would you please move to the other hole. I am painting down here.” Needless to say they left the building in a hurry. Maybe it is time for me to leave this story in a hurry! It has been a fun adventure. THANKS to Sunnyview residents for their memories. Submitted by Jo Ann Maguire.

We have been talking about all the things we used to plant in our gardens. I found out that the weeds and rocks in my “rock garden” do not count as a garden at all (I tried to argue but lost.). We also decided that sometimes it is better to have friends with gardens and pray for a bountiful crop and wait for them to knock on our door! We are getting excited for a trip to the pizza ranch for lunch. Can you tell that we have cabin fever? We were excited to have some furry friends come and visit us. We love our four legged friends. Thank you to Ken Heim and Jim VanScoy for bringing in your fur babies. Thank you to Patty Walters who has been bringing in her new baby Clyde to visit. I am not sure what kind of dog he is, but he is the

cutest little fluff ball and the ladies cannot get enough time with him. If anyone has a cat that you could bring for a visit please give me a call. Pet therapy can be one of the most beneficial therapeutic programs for nursing home residents. Many of our residents once owned a pet or even several pets and love to be able to pet and cuddle them. I often bring my 3 dachshunds to visit. They know exactly what rooms have the treats and head right to them! One of our residents had her daughter send her dog treats in the mail, so that all of the four legged friend visiting would like her best. My dogs love her! Friday we celebrated the 88th birthday of Dale Heim. Thank you to Marilyn Turner for bringing the cake and strawberries. Thank you to Ken and Kellie Heim for bringing in the ice cream. Thanks to Jerry and Patty Walters for serving for me as I took a much needed afternoon off.

My Thought For The Day Is: Happy times and bygone days are never lost...In truth they grow more wonderful within the heart that keeps them. The Trivia Question for his week is: What is the meaning of Amana, selected from, the Song of Solman 4:8? The Helping Hands Club met at the J.J. Hands Library on Tuesday with 7 people responding to Roll Call with ‘Where would you rather be right now but here?’ Most of the answers were some where it is warm. President Kathryn Myers welcomed every one. Their Secretary (Lucky Girl) was in California enjoying the nice weather. She announced that The Crafters meet at the Library on Tues. from 6:00 to 7:30. Jane Simbro and Ruth Stephenson spoke about the plans for the Community Garden and the Food

Pantry which will be at St. Josephs Church They need money for the watering of the garden and more volunteers. Kathryn closed the meeting by thanking every one for attending. The next meeting will be on April the 1st. Graveside services for Lloyd (Shorty) Christensen were held at Evergreen Cemetery and a time for meeting old friends was held afterward at the Lohrville fire Station. Pat Kevlin is in Mercy Hospital in Des Moines for treatment. We are thinking of you Pat. The answer to the Trivia Question is: To remain faithful. Until next week enjoy the warm up I know I will. Anyone having an item for Lohrville news may contact Bette Knapp at 712-465-3295.

S.A.L.T. meeting slated On Thursday, March 20, area senior citizens are invited to attend the Calhoun County S.A.L.T. meeting, co-sponsored by Calhoun County law enforcement departments and agencies, and Calhoun County Public Health. “S.A.L.T.” meetings are regularly scheduled gatherings of seniors, law enforcement officials, and human service agencies that provide services and programs for older adults. The meetings are both educational and social, and provide an opportunity for seniors to learn about issues and topics which have an impact on their lives. Particular attention is paid to raising awareness about Medicare scams and fraud, as well as identity theft issues. These meetings are funded through the Community Foundation Grant. The site for the meeting on the 20th will be at Golden Meadows in Manson. A Public Health nurse from Calhoun County Public Health will be available starting at 12:30 p.m. to provide free blood pressure

checks for anyone interested, and the meeting/program will begin promptly at 1 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The meeting typically adjourns by 2:30 a.m. The educational component of the meeting will feature Nancy Bruns. Nancy will speak about her experience as a nurse/guardian on the May, 2013 Brushy Creek Honor Flight for Korean and WW II Veterans. She will share the privilege, joy and the emotions of sharing that day one on one with one veteran and with the whole group of veterans. Nancy is also a SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol)  volunteer for Elderbridge. Her job is to Empower Seniors to Prevent Healthcare Fraud.  All S.A.L.T. meetings are free of charge and open to any interested senior citizen. No reservations are required. For additional information, contact Tami Mohr or Sue Hammen at Calhoun County Public Health, 712-297-8323.

ISU EXTENSION NEWS Backyard Gardening Workshop

The annual Backyard Gardening workshop held in Lake City is known for helping people get in the gardening mood, and as a place for learning new ideas about what a garden can be. This year’s program will take place Saturday, March 22, from 9 a.m. to noon in the community room at the Lake City Library. Three experts in their field will present topics related to gardening and nature. Presenter Brad Riphagen, a Trees Forever Field Coordinator for over 18 years, will speak on “All Things Trees”. Trees Forever is a nonprofit organization celebrating its 25th anniversary and offers programs in tree and prairie planning and planting. Adam Nockels is the owner and operator of Raccoon Ridge Farm and will present “Organic Gardening”. Adam will share how he draws inspiration from nature and the natural sciences when solving problems at his ten acre

organic fruit and vegetable farm outside of Lake City. Finally, Sam and Jordon Adams will give a presentation on “Bee Keeping”. Sam is a District Conservationist with NRCS in Webster County and Jordan is a blogger and business woman operating a website called “The Prairie Princess” where she writes about healthy living. They both work their land in Gowrie and care for four bee hives. Please register by calling the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Calhoun County office at 712297-8611. There is a small fee payable at the door. This program is presented in partnership by the Calhoun County Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Calhoun County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Calhoun County.

Spring fields and summer droughts can both be mitigated by managing subsurface drainage. Iowa State University Extension is planning three single-day workshops in mid-March to explore the opportunities drainage systems offer. They will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the following workshop locations: March 18 – Bancroft Golf Course, Bancroft, 515-2952469 March 19 – Clay County Extension Office, Spencer, 712-262-2264 March 20 – Calhoun County Extension Office, 521 4th Street, Rockwell City, 712-297-8611 The program will explore new drainage designs that help remove excess water in the spring, save or add water in the summer, and reduce nitrogen loss from drained fields. Current research shows the pumping cost to add or subtract an acre inch to a field is only about 80 cents. Control structures, which maintain the water table

and reduce the loss of nitrogen, are part of the nutrientreduction strategy and are eligible for cost-share funding. Surface intakes have been utilized for decades to remove ponded water from potholes. Corn stalks and other residues plug the holes, making them a maintenance headache as well as an obstacle in the fields that make them easy to damage with field equipment. New developments that provide alternatives to surface intakes will be discussed during the programs. The final program discussion will be on the economics of the drainage system and how to structure agreements between landlords and tenants to get the projects completed. Attendees will find out how others have resolved the “money problems” on other drainage projects, so that the benefits can be realized. Registration deadline for Calhoun County is March 17. Call Calhoun County Extension at 712-297-8611 to register and to obtain fee information. Space is limited.

Farmland owners invited to spring conference Landowners who own farmland in and around Carroll, Calhoun and Sac Counties are invited to a free land management conference on Friday, April 4, at the Conservation Education Center located at Swan Lake State Park in Carroll. The purpose of the event is to support landowners in preserving the longterm value and productivity of their farmland. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with presentation and discussion beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Conservation Education Center located at Swan Lake State Park, 22676 Swan Lake Drive, Carroll. Attendees will hear from several excellent speakers, all aiming to help landowners make the best decisions for managing their land. Discussion topics range from improving communication with your farm

operator to developing sustainable lease agreements and understanding the landowner’s role in Iowa’s nutrient management strategy. The day also will include a bus tour of local farming practices and stewardship methods and a discussion session with area conservation farm operators. The conference will conclude at 5 p.m. Tom Buman, a lifetime conservationist and soil commissioner from Carroll County will facilitate the meeting, along with Jamie Ridgely, Calhoun County landowner. “If you ever wondered if your land is being cared for, or just want to learn more about how to protect land investment, I hope you’ll consider joining us for the day,” said Ridgely. “There’s so much opportunity, and women as well as men can see that it happens.”

All landowners are welcome. Preregistration is required by calling 866-792-6248. Lunch and bus tour will be provided at no charge. The Spring Landowner Conference is hosted by Iowa Conservation Connect, a partnership of local organizations that support non-operator and absentee owners of farmland with information and assistance to help them maintain and improve the natural resources on their land. Currently, more than 60 percent of the agricultural land in Iowa is owned by people who either don’t live on or don’t operate their farmland. In parts of northern Iowa, this number is as high as 70 percent. For more information, or to register for the conference, call Iowa Conservation Connect at 866-7926248.

SCC Titan Girls fall to North Linn Lynx at State Competition

By Doug Dornath South Central Calhoun’s varsity girls basketball team gave it their all in the Class 2A quarterfinal round at the 2014 girls state basketball tournament against North Linn Monday, March 3, at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, but in the end the Lynx had an answer for every run the Titans made in the game and held on for a 57-49 victory. “We just couldn’t quite get over the hump, but credit them (North Linn) for that,” said South Central Calhoun head coach Dave Birks. “I was proud of how our kids fought. We were a little nervous at the beginning when we got down by eight, but then we started to settle down in the second quarter. Unfortunately, we were never able to get the lead and the ball late in the game.” Despite trailing by as many as 11 points in the first half, the Titans clawed back into it by halftime and trailed only by two at 26-24. In the third period, the Titans were able to regain the lead in the contest at 32-30 with 4:08 to go in the period on a Ashley Henkenius three-pointer, which was the first time the Titans had the led the contest since it was 6-4 early in the first half. Henkenius, who led the Titans with 17 points in the contest including five three-point goals made, knocked in three three-point goals alone in the third period. By the end of the third quarter, the teams found themselves tied at 37-37. In the fourth period, the Titans took an early 39-37 lead as Hannah Corey scored on a layup with 7:49 to go in the game. A few minutes later, the Lynx regained the led with a three-pointer by Maddie Boer with 5:08 left to go up 40-39. Henkenius added her fourth three-point goal made of the second SCC senior Ashley Henkenius half with 4:34 to go in the contest to passes to an open teammate in give the Titans a 42-40 advantage. action against North Linn at the North Linn would tie the score at 42 2014 Class 2A girls state basketall after a pair of free throws made by ball tournament in Des Moines Libby Falconer with 3:53 to go in the March 3.

Nicole Miller, who led the Lynx with 25 points in the contest, would come up big on the next couple of plays. Miller converted a pair of SCC turnovers into quick lay-ups to extend North Linn’s lead to 49-42 with two minutes to go in the game. “I guess we did a pretty good job on her (Nicole Miller) to hold her under her average,” said coach Birks. “We had to press at the end defensively, which we’re not used to doing, and they hurt us with a couple of easy ones.” Haley Birks, who finished with 15 points for SCC in the contest, answered with a three-pointer with 1:40 to go in the game to narrow the margin to five points at 49-45, but again Falconer scored inside to push the lead back to six points at 51-45 Lynx with 1:31 to go. SCC’s Michaela Graffunder again trimmed the margin to four points with 1:10 to go as she converted a pair of free throws to make it a 51-47 contest. Falconer, who finished with 11 points in the game, again scored inside for the Lynx with just under a minute to go to push the lead back up to six at 5347, while Haley Birks scored the final basket of the game for SCC with 48 seconds to go in the contest. Miller knocked in a pair of free throws as she was fouled on the end bounds play with 48 seconds to go and scored a final basket of the contest with 29 seconds remaining for the 57-49 final. As a team, the Titans shot 44 percent (17-of-48) from the floor in the

North Linn hit 44 percent (22-of-50) from the field for the contest and hit 83 percent (10-of-12) from the free throw line for the game including 7-of-7 shooting from the line in the second half.
