NIB rolls out the red carpet North Iowa Betterment gave more than 100 guests the red carpet treatment at its annual Winter Gala on Saturday, Mar. 8 at the Heritage Town Center. The night started out with photos on the “red carpet” as guests arrived at the Heritage Town Center. There was a cocktail hour, followed by a speech by NIB president Matt Duve

and a catered roast beef dinner and dessert. Entertainment for the night included Rebecca Davis playing the harp during dinner and music by All BS Band. There were live and silent auctions, along with a photo booth and slide show. There was also a “heads or tails” game, in which guests put their hands on their head

or their “tail” to guess the outcome of a flipped coin. The winner of the game was Levi Judge, who took home a Roomba donated by NGT. The Gala serves as NIB’s biggest fundraiser of the year and was organized by committee members: Jamie Price, Tressa Larson, Monica Main, Lisa Berggren, Alicea Porter, Erin Homsey and Missy Duve. continued on page 12

North Iowa is officially on board with forming a new super conference between the North Iowa Conference and the Corn Bowl Conference. The North Iowa School Board approved the plan to form a new two-division super conference beginning with the 2015-16 school year at its monthly meeting on Monday, Mar. 10. All of the boards of the involved schools will discuss the issue this month, and athletic directors from the districts have already begun planning schedules. The proposed super conference would include Belmond-Klemme, Bishop Garrigan, Central Spring, Eagle Grove, Forest City, GarnerHayfield/Ventura, Lake Mills, Nashua-Plainfield, Newman Catholic, North Butler, Northwood-Kensett, North Union, Osage, Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock, St. Ansgar, West Fork and West Hancock. North Iowa Supt. Cory Myer hopes the super conference would provide new opportunities for students beyond athletics, with possibilities including new art competitions, quiz bowls and honor bands and choirs. The board also held a public hearing last Monday on its 2014-15 bud-

get. The budget includes a reduced property tax rate of 9.81062 per $1,000 taxable valuation, which is about 25 cents lower than last year’s final rate of 10.06498 per $1,000. There were no objections, and the board approved the budget. In other business, the Board heard a report from Hunter Gelhaus and Rick Meyer of the Bison FFA on the FFA chapter’s 2013 crop production. Yields on land leased by the school totaled 762.33 bushels of soybeans on 16.5 acres and 3,115.81 bushels of corn on 19.5 acres. The FFA also planted soybeans on 11.4 acres owned by the school, which yielded 301 bushels. The chapter sold its soybeans for $12.31 per bushel and its corn for $4.19 per bushel. With the aid of seed and labor donations, the FFA’s crop sale profits totaled $5,216 for the year. The Board accepted resignations from John Hagedorn as bus driver, Chad Hinders as high school baseball coach and Steve Bergeson as middle school wrestling coach. Hinders was offered the head softball coaching position, while Rebecca Schwartz was named assistant softball coach and Shelby Hanna was appointed middle school volleyball

coach. Graig Eichenberger will be the new head high school baseball coach. A contract change was also made for custodian Bev Brooker, who went up from 18 hours per week to 24 hours per week to accommodate custodial work in the new wellness center. The Board approved a cell phone stipend of $90 per month for Board Secretary Sara Meinders. Supt. Myer said the phone will be useful for things such as updating the school’s new Facebook page, as websites like Facebook and Twitter are blocked on the school’s network. The school’s Facebook page is located at www.facebook.com/northiowacommunityschool. The Board renewed the district’s athletic sharing agreements with Forest City for wrestling and with Lake Mills for bowling for the 201415 school year. Supt. Myer said the response to the new wellness center has been wonderful, with 266 people signed up so far as members. Myer said that number is about double what he expected, and the school has had to order more ID cards because they already ran out of cards for new members. continued on page 12

City freezes water bills due to freezing pipes

Buffalo Center residents won’t see a hike in their water bills if they’ve been running extra water to prevent pipes from freezing. The Buffalo Center City Council voted last Wednesday to keep water bills steady for residents in the coming months, as the City will charge customers the same amount per month during the second quarter of the year

as they were charged during the first quarter. The decision comes as the City encourages residents to continue monitoring their water temperatures, even as the weather begins to warm up. The City advises water customers to run a small, steady stream of water if the temperature drops to 40 degrees or below. A pencil-sized

stream is recommended if the temperature falls to 38 degrees, and a larger stream is advised if water temperatures drop lower. Mayor Armstrong said the issue of freezing pipes could continue until May. In other business, the Council hired summer help for the park continued on page 12

10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, March 18, 2004 National merit finalist Britta Anderson, daughter of Steve and Sharyl Anderson of Thompson, has received word that she has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist.

Capitol Highlights By Representative Tedd Gassman Iowa House District 7 tedd.gassman@legis.iowa.gov A number of people have contacted me about medical marijuana as of lately. It would be difficult for me to vote for the use of medical marijuana in the smoking form. I believe it is a gateway drug to other harsher forms of drugs. We have spent a great deal of money trying to help people stop smoking tobacco and to prevent people from smoking tobacco. Why would we legalize smoking marijuana? If there are various substances in the marijuana plant that could be medicinal when extracted and used in the form of a pill or whatever, that would need to be looked at. Other states that have loosened laws allowing marijuana for medical or recreational purposes have encountered “unintended consequences” in the aftermath. The opium plant is used to extract morphine. I am grateful for morphine, as I have had five knee operations. This Friday, March 14, is the last day that legislation passed by our chamber must be passed by the appropriate committee in the other chamber. If that does not occur, it would no longer be eligible for de-

bate in either chamber. The only exceptions to this rule are those bills that have a fiscal impact on the state budget. Some of the bills passed in either chamber could be changed in the other chamber or the bill could be different to begin with and would have to go through a conference committee. I realize that by the time you read this, it will have already happened. Although most or all of the schools in district 7 are currently testing for radon or have tested for radon, I did vote for a bill that would require the department of education to inform school districts about the risks associated with radon. Each school district would have to notify the department by December 1 whether it has a radon testing and mitigation plan. If schools do not have a plan for radon testing and mitigation, they would have to notify the department of any plans to implement a radon testing and mitigation plan. That plan would be forwarded on to the legislature in January of 2015. This law is designed to encourage our school districts to move forward on the radon issue. It is believed that there is a radon problem that is not being looked into at this time. The data that we get will help the legislature understand the scope of the situation without putting an out-and-out mandate on school districts. Thank you for the opportunity to represent your interests in the Iowa House of Representatives. Please call or e-mail with any questions or comments, and I will do my best to find you an answer. 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.

Small town charm…

BIG CITY

Internet speeds

dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov This week the Senate considered a bill that would make texting while on the roadway and even while stopped at a stoplight, a moving violation. This means that being caught texting is cause enough to be stopped by law enforcement, and this would go on your record the same as a speeding ticket. Texting is indeed a dangerous thing to do while operating a car. However, I thought Senator Brad Zaun offered an interesting amendment. His amendment simply said drivers must use common sense while operating a vehicle. He explained that there are many other things that are dangerous to do while operating a vehicle. Here are few he listed: eating, reading, disciplining your children, adjusting your radio or climate control, putting on makeup or being distracted by a pet. His point is we seem to think that government must regulate everything. What we really need is for people to use common sense and be accountable for their own actions. I agree. Predictably, his amendment was struck down and the original bill passed the Senate with bi-partisan support. However, the issue appears to have died in the Iowa House. At the beginning of the session, Governor Branstad committed to getting something passed to address bullying in schools. House Republicans and Senate Democrats have two very different bills. The Democrat version insists only behavior against certain classes of students be treated as bullying. This would mean that if you are a minority or homosexual, you would be protected under this law. If you are just the new kid in

town or you hang out with the geeks, this law would not apply. I think it is time to quit creating segments of society that receive special rights and start treating everyone the same. This appears to be an issue that will cause much heated debate the rest of the session. I suggest that we apply the Golden Rule and “treat others as you would like to be treated.” This looks like another area where government is trying to micro-manage, and we might be better off allowing the local school boards to make their own policy. March 21 was the last funnel date for legislation to reach the floor in order to be passed this year. There are several good bills that came over from the House that will not be debated in the Senate because the Majority Leader refused to put them on the agenda. That includes a bill to ban webcam abortions, protect traditional marriage and several gun rights bills. If we want any of these issues to be discussed, we must change the leadership in the Senate. I urge citizens to contact me if they have questions about what is going on in our state government. Patrick Henry said: “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.” You may contact me at dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov or call me at 641-430-0424. I plan to be at Wright County on either the March 21 or 22. (Time and location to be announced.) I will also be in Algona March 29 at the library at 10 a.m. That evening I will be at the NRA banquet at Duncan.

Waldorf names Quisling cheerleading coach Waldorf College has hired Dyanna Quisling as its cheerleading program’s head coach. “Dyanna has been a great addition to our staff,” said Bart Gray, Waldorf director of athletics. “Her experience in cheerleading at the secondary level will provide her with an excellent foundation on which to build our program here at Waldorf.” Quisling, a native of Buffalo Center, graduated from North Iowa High School in 1991, where she was active in cheerleading. “I have loved cheerleading since I wore my first uniform in junior high,” Quisling said. “Waldorf has a great program and a reputation for having the best all-girls squads in the state. The opportunity to coach an all-girls squad with a history of excellence is exciting.” Quisling served as North Iowa’s cheer coach for the past five years, leading the team to three years of state competition. She guided the Bison to third place in 2010, runnerup honors in 2011 and seventh place in 2013. Quisling is certified by the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches & Administrators (AACCA) and is a member of the Iowa Cheer Coaches Association Representative Council. Quisling, who will also serve as Waldorf’s athletic office assistant,

assumed her position on Feb. 3. “Her other duties as reception/office assistant will help alleviate the workload stress on others in the department,” Gray said. Quisling takes the helm of the cheerleading program at an exciting time. In April, the National Association of Intercollege Athletics (NAIA) will transition cheerleading and dance to a nationally-sponsored varsity sport, culminating in a national championship. “With cheerleading in the NAIA being elevated to a national championship sport, it brings new importance to this position,” Gray said. Quisling has three children – Kassi, Gabe and Izacc.

Center

Cooper nominated as Local Hero in national contest The community can help a “Local Hero” get a new ride this spring, during National Mobility Awareness Month. Dalton Cooper of Buffalo Center has been nominated as a Local Hero in a contest for a new wheelchair-accessible van, which is sponsored by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association. Dalton, the son of Duane and Teresa Cooper, was born three weeks early with Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy and weighed just four pounds. He spent four weeks in a neonatal intensive care unit before he was able to come home. When he was nine months old, Dalton began having seizures, which led to the discovery that he had suffered brain damage. Now 16 years old, he has had about 20 surgeries in his short life; some of which have kept him in the hospital for weeks. “At 16, he is completely dependent on family, but that doesn’t stop him from living,” said his mom, Teresa. “He has never let any of the surgeries get him down. He was part of the football team in elementary and also sang in the elementary choir. He is able to go to a work program for work this summer that is about 30 miles away. Having a good vehicle that he can get around in is so impor-

tant. “His current van has a lot of issues and things that are broke on it,” said Teresa. “We as a family can’t afford to fix some of the problems or afford a new van at this time. Dalton loves to be out and about. He never wants to just sit home. We go to all the local football games, his first love. He goes to as many sport events to cheer on his siblings and cousins as he can. Everyone that meets him walks away with a smile and a better feel for life. People can vote once per day for Dalton to help him win a new van by visiting www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/entrant/dalton-cooperbuffalo-center-ia. Voting continues through May 9. “I thought having a child that would never walk would destroy me,” said Teresa. “Dalton has made me and so many people understand that he is perfect – the most perfect you will ever get. He makes me smile and so happy. His faith, understanding and acceptance of who he is make those around him love him even more. “He would be so happy to win a van; it would be the best thing ever,” his mom added. “We would have to listen to him brag the rest of the year.”
