It to admire Lucille Swick. The 83-year-old has worked 66 years, starting as a 17-year-old and serving women throughout the ages. The devout Lutheran is simple at heart, just thanking God for blessing her with the ability to still provide the service. Named after her daughter, Swick has worked out of her house at Patti Lynn’s Beauty Shop since 1963. With the swing a door, she’s goes from work to her dining room. “I couldn’t have it any better,” she says. As the oldest beautician in town, she also may be the longest working one in Butler County and even the state. “I thank God every day that I can still work,” she says. “I’m a people person, and I know and like everybody, and they seem to like me.” Swick sticks to what works too. She’s had the same pair of clippers throughout her career that must be imprinted to her fingers. Also, the shop is retro 1950s/’60s, with vintage leather hair dryer chairs, glamour aprons, fancy chairs and her swivel chair. Hues of light pink and charcoal gray engulf the place, with curtains, light fixtures, chairs and laminate walls falling into the color scheme. Swick says the colors have always worked

County tax rate to increase 2 percent Butler County tax rates are projected to increase by about 2 percent in fiscal year 2015. The countywide levy is forecasted to bump up 11 cents at $5.87 per $1,000 of valuation, while the rural levy is estimated to stay where it has for the last several years at $3.75 per $1,000 of valuation. The overall levy rate is expected to move to $9.62 per 1,000 of valuation. The Board of Supervisors has reestimated this year’s total revenues to 39,814,642, about 15 percent more than the initial proposal, with revenues projected at $36,555,523 in FY 2015. Expenditures were re-estimated by 2 percent more to $35,535,608 this year, while next year’s expenditures are a proposed $39,063,453. The carryover balance for 2014 was readjusted to $7,272,501, a decrease of 37 percent from last year’s budget projections, and the carryover balance for 2015 is expected to increase to $11,551,535. The dollar amount of $23,233,722, or 60 percent, is extremely inflated for the mental health, mental retardation and development disabilities service area, according to auditor Liz Williams. In actuality, Butler just manages the funds of a consortium of 22 counties in the region, and is its fiscal agent of money coming in and out. Property tax statements are again to be issued in mid-August, where landowners can pay the entire balance, due in September, or split the payment in half, paying the other portion at the end of March. WHERE ARE MY TAXES GOING? Roads and transportation are expected to take up the biggest chunk of expenditures at $4,985,00 (13 percent) for 2015. This service area includes programs of secondary roads administration and engineering, roadway maintenance, general roadway expenditures and mass transit. Public safety and legal services are estimated for 6 percent of expenditures ($2,261,624), including programs of law enforcement, legal services, emergency services, assistance to district court system, court proceedings and juvenile justice administration. Other areas taking up pieces of the pie are: administration (5 percent), physical health and social services (4 percent), capital projects and county environment and education (both 3 percent), government services to residents (2 percent) debt service (1 percent) and nonprogram current (0 percent).

INSIDE NEWS Wrestling coach finds fit in insurance

Clarksville wrestling coach Tim Negen set out to become a veterinarian after high school, but ended up taking a different path. Instead of applying to be one of the 100 students allowed in at Iowa State University’s veterinarian school, Negen turned toward other interests while earning his degrees in animal science and agriculture business at Hawkeye Community College. And when an internship opened up in his hometown, Negen jumped on the opportunity. “Mike [Clark] was looking for somebody,” he said. “It opened up, and I thought I would enjoy the opportunity. “The insurance portion I didn’t think tied into it [majors] at all. But now that I’m into it, everything seems to be tying together, because 95 percent of the time, I deal with farmers all day long.” Negen finished up his internship last July, and has been working full-time since. Just last week, Farm Insurance Bureau held an open house for Negen to introduce himself to the public. Taking over as head wrestling at Clarksville this year, working in town made the jaunt to practices just a hop, skip and jump away. And at just 22 years old, the state place winner went from athlete to coach at the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament within a few years. “It was definitely a new experience than wrestling,” Negen said. “It’s a lot harder to coach than wrestle down there. It was a great experience, and I’m hoping to be down there the

He helped cut 25 bales of hay and raise 10 to 25 head of cattle per year.
Rep. Bruce Braley praised the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs this week in allowing veterans and active-duty military personnel with ALS to access grants to adapt their homes. “For many injured service members and veterans, adapting their homes is one of the most important and financially difficult areas of adjustment,” Braley said. “I was proud to work with Andrew Connolly for years to ensure that resources are available to help service members and veterans stay in their homes, and this grant program will help in that effort.” Under the change, veterans and service members with service-connected ALS will be determined medically eligible for the maximum grant. The program provides grants to eligible service-connected disabled veterans and service members to construct or modify a home to meet their unique housing needs. Grants are also available to help eligible individuals purchase adapted homes or pay down mortgages on homes that are already adapted.

Borlaug statue unveiled at US Capitol
American Depression, keys to happiness By Glenn Mollette Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’ Wren Scott committed suicide recently. There have been different speculations as to the reason. Unfortunately suicide often is a response to deep depression. Hanging herself in her apartment was a quick and reckless way out of her despair. Americans are more depressed than ever. Over sixteen billion dollars were spent last year on anti depression prescription drugs. This
does not take into consideration illegal drugs and alcohol that millions of Americans consume just to fight the blahs. Medical costs to fight depression cost our nation close to sixty billion dollars a year. Average America has had a lot to get us down and depressed. Millions are unemployed. Millions more are classified as being underemployed and are considered the working poor. At least sixty million people are living in poverty with another fifty million very close to poverty.

As the month of March wraps up, so do our students’ winter sports activities. I want to extend a hearty congratulations to all of our wrestling, boys basketball, and girls basketball athletes who had great success at the state tournament! We now turn our attention to spring sports and I look forward to following the continued achievements of our student athletes. Iowa will soon have a new statue to be admired in our nation’s capital. On Tuesday, a statue of Iowa native Dr. Norman Borlaug will be officially unveiled in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol. Each state is represented by two statues. Dr. Borlaug’s statue will replace U.S. Senator James Harlan, which was installed in 1910, and will join the statue of Governor Samuel Kirkwood, installed in 1913. The Harlan statue will be relocated to Mount Pleasant. I recently enjoyed reading an article entitled “The Iowan Who Saved A Billion Lives,” in Iowa History Journal, a magazine focused on preserving Iowa history and presenting it in both an educational and entertaining way. The article celebrates the legacy and global inspiration of Dr. Norman Borlaug- a true Iowa treasure. Joining Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Elie Wiesel, Dr. Borlaug is one of only three Americans to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the Congressional Gold Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He was born in Cresco, Iowa 100 years ago and is commonly referred to as “The Man Who Saved A Billion Lives” and “Agriculture’s Greatest Spokesperson” due to his efforts to revolutionize global food production and to help fight global hunger. Dr. Borlaug spent his life researching and developing high-yield, disease-resistant wheat varieties that
are now used to feed hungry people around the globe. Borlaug’s education began in a one-room schoolhouse in Howard County that he attended through eighth grade. His education continued at Cresco High School, where he excelled in athletics, especially wrestling. Following high school, Borlaug applied to the University of Minnesota, but failed the entrance exam. Although some believed he lacked science and math skills, after much perseverance, Borlaug was accepted into the University of Minnesota two years later. The University now proudly houses a building named in his honor. In 1986, 16 years after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to help fight global hunger, Borlaug created the World Food Prize to recognize individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality and quantity of food in the world. In 1990, John Ruan, a Des Moines businessman, established the World Food Prize Foundation located in Des Moines. Each October, in addition to awarding its latest recipient, the World Food Prize hosts the Borlaug Dialogue, a multi-day event that brings people together from more than 65 countries to address cuttingedge issues related to global food security and nutrition. The unveiling of the statue not only falls on what would have been Borlaug’s 100th birthday, but is also National Agriculture Day- a very fitting time to honor Dr. Borlaug and his impact on global agriculture. As the weather continues to warm and we approach adjournment, we will remain focused on the priorities of Iowans.

Working Americans with mid-level incomes pay more and more taxes and get less and less help. The middle-class work harder but get further behind. They have house payments, tuition payments and a growing medical insurance load. In the meantime they face local, state and federal governments all trying to figure out ways to impose more tax. There are five keys to American’s overcoming our depression dilemma. Be involved in meaningful daily activity. An idle life is a depressing life. Human beings need activity. We need to use our hands and minds. Mindless hours of television, staring at the computer or the walls will eventually put you under. Develop a daily life of being busy with meaningful activity. We all need jobs, exercise, gardening, housework, community activities or charity service to enrich our lives. Develop and maintain meaningful relationships. This may be family, church and work relationships or it could be people from other circles. Everybody needs somebody to talk to. People can be irritating but the same irritating people will keep you from focusing on you all the time. Total self-focus leads to depression. Give some. I grew up hearing that we should give ten percent to God, save ten percent and live on eighty percent. Giving is more than writing a check although checks are significant. Giving and helping others requires exerting positive emotional and physical activity that takes the focus off self. There are all kinds of ways we can be helpful to others. Develop a spiritual peace. Before you jump off the Golden Gate Bridge or hang yourself from a doorknob try talking to God. Not every day goes our way. Work can be frustrating and people can disappoint us. Problems can break us down. We all need the power and peace that are greater than ourselves as well as our problems. Get some sleep. A rested mind and body thinks more clearly. Charles Spurgeon was a great minister from England. He once said, “I have so much to do I must go back to bed.” Everybody faces down moments in life. Don’t let depression get the best of you.

Protecting Iowans’ Privacy & Identity All Iowans should be protected from identity theft, including children and dependent adults. The Iowa Senate approved House File 2368 to help prevent identity theft of kids and other vulnerable Iowans, giving them the same protections as independent adults. In 2008, the Legislature voted to allow Iowans to tell the three major credit reporting agencies to put a freeze on sharing their credit reports. A credit freeze prevents third parties from accessing your credit reports without your approval. Most businesses will not issue you a credit card or make a loan without first checking your credit history through a credit-reporting agency. So, when someone gets ahold of your name and Social Security Number and tries to open an account, a freeze on your credit reports prohibits your identify from being stolen. Unfortunately, the credit reporting companies have not allowed parents or guardians to put a security freeze on their dependents’ credit reports. Consequently, children have become victims of identity theft when thieves obtain their names and Social Security Numbers. House File 2368 allows parents to tell the credit reporting agencies to place a security freeze on their children’s credit reports and allows guardians of vulnerable individuals to do the same. Another bill, House File 2289, addresses unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones. These aircraft can be flown remotely, can go places that planes and helicopters cannot and are able to gather valu-
able information without endangering human lives. Currently, the Federal Aviation Administration is working on rules to safely integrate drones into U.S. airspace. Insurance companies, agribusiness, news agencies, law enforcement and others look forward to using drones as a valuable tool in their work. However, drone technology with sight and sound-recording ability is causing concerns among citizens about potential misuse and an invasion of privacy. To address these concerns, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to amend and pass legislation recently approved by the Iowa House. House File 2289 will ensure that if someone uses a drone to trespass on another’s privacy in his or her home, the drone user can be charged with criminal trespass. In addition, law enforcement must obtain a warrant to use information in court that was gathered through use of a drone. This legislation will not interfere with hobbyists who enjoy model planes or any legitimate business use.

As a prequel to the morning coffee inhalation down at the Mule Barn coffee shop, the members of the world dilemma think tank were found at the break of day, armed with fly rods, in their other guise as charter members of the Lewis Creek Piscatorial Pursuit Alliance. “I like your presentation, Dud,” said Doc, waving his hand-tied midge through the air. A presentation is fly-fishing-speak for how you wave your line through the air and set it down on the water. “Thanks, Doc. That double-haul cast of yours is a work of beauty. Look at Steve over there. Ever see anyone pull the line out of the reel and extend his cast that well?” “Thanks,” said Steve. “But I keep watching how Doc does it and I know I’m not in the same league.” “You’re too kind,” said Doc. “I think
a good part of it is just using this mayfly dry that Marvin tied for me. This thing just hangs suspended over the creek like it was a helicopter.” “I do my best,” Marvin said, casting a stonefly nymph upstream, “but we all know it isn’t the fly so much as it is the way it’s presented to the fish.” Half an hour later, they were seated and sipping at the philosophy counter at the Mule Barn. No one had caught anything that morning, but it didn’t stop them all from feeling really good about themselves. Fishing can be painlessly therapeutic. You can look it up. -----------Brought to you by A Home Country Minute with Slim Randles, coming to a television station near you. Want a sneak peek? http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=TMVxpRLzvVY
To the editor, Tuesday marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest heroes of the 20th century – Dr. Norman Borlaug. Borlaug’s newly created statue was unveiled and installed in the U.S. Capitol, and the Borlaug Centennial was celebrated around the world. Almost exactly one year ago, I sponsored legislation that was unanimously approved by the Iowa Senate to place a statue of the Howard County native in the United States Capitol Building. It was an honor to play a small part in recognizing Dr. Borlaug, an example of northeast Iowans at our best. His work as the father of the Green Revolution improved agriculture around the world and bettered the lives of countless people. This Cresco native of my hometown conducted groundbreaking research in breeding varieties of wheat that helped feed starving populations across the globe. He was internationally recognized for his work, receiving a Nobel Peace Prize, a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Congressional Gold Medal. He will take his place as one of two Iowa statues in the National Statuary Hall Collection at the US Capitol. His legacy lives on through the next generation of students, researchers and hunger-fighters. Youth programs connected to the World Food Prize, which Norman Borlaug helped launch, are shaping the paths of incredible young students who could very well be the next Norman Borlaug.

On March 25, the U.S. Capitol will host an extraordinary event. A new statue will be added of Iowa’s own Norman Borlaug. It will be unveiled in National Statuary Hall in the south wing. Borlaug was raised on a farm near Cresco. A humanitarian and renowned agricultural scientist, Borlaug is recognized for eradicating famine in Mexico, India and Pakistan during the mid-20th century with his development of a disease-resistant, high-yielding wheat. Borlaug is credited for saving one billion people from starvation in developing nations.

Becoming unhooked Pat Racette firstname.lastname@example.org
The Information Age is undoubtedly a cool era to live in, but man, sometimes it can be a real drag. Just let me be information. I don’t need to know why man exists. I don’t need to know the definitions of business terms on a daily basis or how to work from home. What a gyp. “Shush,” is what I want to say to the inanimate object. Usually it comes in the form of my iPhone. It might be a vibrating buzz, or loud ripples of noise that gives me anxiety by going off. Geez, I really need to change the settings, I’ll think. But really, I just need a break from my iPhone and technology in general. And for closure, I will separate from it. As insanely addicted I am to just having my iPhone constantly with me, on me and around me, I’m going to leave it be away from me. It comes a time when one must choose, technology or me. Holding my iPhone up, I gently lay it down on the table. I don’t wave goodbye, I don’t say see you later, I just go. Soon I won’t feel anything vibrate or give me a heart attack through impulsive rings. Soon, I’ll feel the nakedness of being unhooked. Of being left out in the cold without a home and all alone like a rolling stone. But I manned up. I walked away, and I didn’t turn back. I’ll admit, I thought about it, but I didn’t do it. What now? How could I distract myself from the temptation of going back? How could I go cold turkey? The answer, pounding nails into 2-by-4s in the basement. I got my hammer out, blasted Santana from my CD player, with percussion noises driving the cool rhythms of Soul Sacrifice to my heart. Man, this is really start to free me I thought, but tried not to think, feeling the satisfying beats of amazing drumming noises from the Woodstock song. The plug had been pulled, and I wasn’t kicking and screaming from the effects. I was relishing being away from the constant burden of it. I was moving my
hips from Santana’s guitar riffs of Spanish descent. I can defeat technology, I said. But I knew I couldn’t. I was just going with the moment. I knew my addiction was there, would be there and this was just a temporary fix. But I put it all on the shelf, and let myself be one with the music instead of social networks, schedules, alarm updates, news and technology waves. It was like I was mowing the lawn last summer in zig zags instead of the correct diagonal pattern I was taught. I was finding a little freedom, and maybe it was just another word for nothing to lose, but it felt good. Like driving 35 mph in a 40 mph speed minimum. And I remembered something my aunt told me about her to mission-like trip to Honduras. She said the poor people there in Central America are pretty much like us, except they have more personal relationships. Since they don’t have TVs, computers and all the electronic entertainment nowadays, they sit around and talk in the evenings and when the work is done. I compared it to my first year at college as a freshman, moving into a dormitory. Instead of communicating through a text or cell phone, we’d talk with one another face to face. Or maybe while playing a game or putting together a 3-D puzzle. We’d just talk and laugh and imagine. One of the first conversations, I remember, was a physics question. At the time, I was thinking, wow, these guys are either really smart or kind of nerdy. They wondered whether a fly was traveling at the same speed as a car when it entered it. I had no idea the answer, nor did I care, but I was just interested in seeing the communication of it. Then I did get to wondering what the heck they meant too. But I liked those simpler days, listening to and worshipping Dave Matthews Band, and the Proudest Monkey sitting up there. Those days were fun, more personal and meaningful I think. So, from this enlightenment, I propose changing the work week to four days, thus, using the fifth day to hang out with friends and people, and bond the way humans should we each other.
Data when you need it The storage industry is struggling to grow. People will buy billions of smartphones, millions of tablets, notebook/desktop computers and servers, but the storage industry is shrinking with unit volumes down 5 percent. Fewer hard-drive producers (WD, Seagate, Toshiba and Hitachi) is hard to imagine when looking around at hard-drive solution producers (EMC, HP, Dell, Other World Computing, LaCie, NewerTech and others). Solution producers are doing brisk business because of storage demands from cloud companies (storage outsourcers), companies, home storage (family cloud), individuals (personal cloud) and the infamous others. Out-the-door shipments were 755.0 million units, down from 794.0 million; but still, capacities have grown from 500GB to 1.4TB. It’s easy to pick on big bit buckets. When you fill the 16-32GB of storage on the device, you can then use the cloud. However, the way everyone is rifling through cloud files, I’m not real confident in it. Even though nearly everything today touches the cloud, in our house is still have a growing array of harddrive based items. They’re needed because kids didn’t grow up with just one device, they’ve got a lot of them. And according to IDC, they use them all, all the time. According to IDC, kids (and companies/agencies) will produce in excess of 40 zettabytes or 5200 GB per human over the next few years. To reach that heady goal, data is expected to double every two years.
Kids are less interested in studying social media use, discrete studies, medical/financial activity, security footage, etc. With everyone creating and casting content into the cloud in hopes that someone will give it a safe home, it’s even more important to ensure your material is safe from information-scraping eyes. People refer to the post-storage era, but frankly, I can’t figure out what they are talking about. It simply can’t exist – somewhere.

House Republicans release priorities in ag/DNR budget On Wednesday, the House Republican chair of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment-First Fund budget subcommittee, Jack Drake, released his fiscal year 2015 general fund and EFF spending priorities. The bill was considered in subcommittee. The subcommittee chair’s mark is less than the governor’s recommendation for ongoing agriculture and natural resource department purposes. This is largely due to the commitment to spending within the means. The appropriation measure is $2 million less than the governor’s FY 2015 recommendation in general fund appropriation, but is $2.2 million above last year’s level. A few differences between the governor’s recommendation and the budget introduced include an increase of $237,364 for the Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, bringing it up to full funding of $4 million envisioned a decade ago. Having a state of the art veterinary diagnostic laboratory is essential to maintaining Iowa’s status as the premier livestock producer state.
Other changes are funding the Silo and Smokestack initiative, with EFF rather than general funds, increasing the EFF appropriation to Loess Hill conservation and development authority from $525,000 to $800,000 and increasing the EFF allocation to soil conservation cost-share from $6.6 million to $7.3 million for FY 2015. The bill contains further private property safeguards and restrictions on the use of state funds to acquire recreational land using eminent domain power. The bill also includes language that has passed the House three times, only to be ignored by the Senate. The bill includes explicit prohibition on the use of Resource Enhancement and Protection open space monies for land acquisition in eminent domain. For instance, a new voter approval process to be used if the Loess Hills Alliance seeks federal protective status for any land and requires in such a circumstance that a majority of landowners affected by the designation vote in favor of such action. 2013 – Record year for hunting
Janice Jacobs of Allison recently filed nomination papers to seek reelection as Butler County Recorder. “It has been a wonderful opportunity to serve our county and its citizens as recorder, and I have been overwhelmed by the support and encouragement of so many as I seek re-election,” Jacobs says. “I will continue to look for ways to cut costs and increase revenues of the office, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service. I look forward to continuing my service to the residents of Butler County and respectfully ask for your support.” Elected in 2010, Jacobs is a lifelong resident of Butler, and has served in the recorder’s office since 1988.
She was appointed deputy to the recorder in 1994, and was subsequently appointed by the board of supervisors as acting recorder when previous recorder Craig Franken served overseas on active duty with the Iowa National Guard. Jacobs is a certified Vital Records Registrar, and is an active member of the Iowa State Recorder’s Association, the Property Records Industry Association and the National Archives Records Administration. She also has completed all necessary education to be certified as county recorder. Jacobs has ensured her office maintains federal compliance in order to provide citizens with a local passport acceptance facility, and continues to operate the office in accordance to Iowa Code.

safety No fatalities occurred because of hunting in Iowa in 2013. A total of 11 injuries and six cases of property damage were reported. Iowa hunters matched a record low in 2013, continuing a decade long run of safe hunting seasons. A total of seven self-inflicted hunting incidents occurred last year. The DNR reports the number has been consistent for the last few years. In the 1960s, over 100 incidents and up to 20 fatalities were reported per year due to hunting. Hunter’s education became mandatory in 1983, and since then, DNR has seen a significant drop in hunting accidents. Ten-hour classes, usually spread over two or three days, teach basic understanding of hunting regulations, first aid and ethics, as well as safe firearm handling and wildlife understanding.

After nine weeks and the second funnel behind us, it is clear Senate Democrats are determined to push for more spending and expanding the scope of government. Senate Republicans, though, are mindful of issues impacting Iowa families, and are pushing for legislation that strengthens the economy, fosters job creation and provides Iowans a worldclass education. Senate Republicans are also concerned with holding spending in check. We understand it is not practical to grow government nearly twice the rate of Iowans’ household incomes. House Republicans and Senate Democrats have proposed joint budget targets of $6.972 billion, which is nearly $3 million below ongoing revenues.
While I truly believe the budget targets will remain close to those proposed by the two chambers, Senate Republicans will push for a budget that spends less than we take in, and doesn’t purposefully underfund programs to balance the budget and spend one-time money for ongoing programs. The proposed fiscal year 2015 budget is an increase of 7.4 percent over the 2014 one, and more than double the historic revenue growth of 3.6 percent. While I appreciate the work the House Republicans have done to keep our fiscal house in order, I realize the budgets we have passed and the targets we have today are a result of a compromise with the Senate Democrats. For that reason, the last several budgets we have passed are higher than I believe Iowans can afford.

The Way It Was
by Dave Clark
125 Years Ago March, 1889 The Handsomest lady in Clarksville remarked to a friend that those French Dongola flexible shoes at Burton’s were the best fitting, best wearing and altogether the toniest shoes she had ever worn. Guess that’s an AD of sorts. Some of the items listed in the “Council Proceedings” of March 9, 1889 which would probably not be found in today’s proceedings! Ed Duncan—setting trees--$5.00; J. E. Neal—lodging tramps--$1.50; shipping tramp out of town--$1.36; Meals to prisoners—$1.25; Meals to prisoners and tramp--$2.00; guarding prisoner--$2.00; W. E. Riden— burying animal--$4.50. F. Hesse, fire chief, appeared before the council and made, in behalf of the Etna Fire Company, this proposition: If the city would appropriate $50 and build a suitable tower, the

fire company would furnish a like amount and whatever could be got for the old fire bell, with the purpose of purchasing a new 400-pound fire bell with mountings. The proposition was accepted and the mayor instructed to appoint one councilman, who, with the mayor should constitute a committee to purchase the bell at once. Next Week; The council will buy a 400 pound bell and mount it on a tower. Once again I mention the mystery of the fire bell, we know the tower was built on the fire station, but no bell hangs in it in any old picture. It may well have been too large for that structure to hold, but where was it put? Is this the bell that now sets in the fire station, in its mountings, that will soon be displayed in new “Reading Park” across from the library? Do not think that all the little bells you hear are “chestnut bells”, they are not. It is fashionable now, for the young ladies to wear bells on their garters. Oh my! I don’t think I know what a “chestnut bell” is and can only imagine a garter bell! Sixteen of Allison’s best young men paid Clarksville a visit Sunday. They came over on a palace (hand) car, chartered for the occasion. That’s what was written. 110 Years Ago March, 1904 Ad: Rock Island System special rates for March; one way ticket on a Tourist Sleeper to principal points in California, from Clarksville, Iowa, $31.50. Found in the STAR: Winamac, Ind., Feb. 29—The Pulaski County jail and two prisoners have disappeared. When the old jail was torn down in order that a new one might be built on the same spot a freight car was substituted for the county lockup. A train crew which did not know it was carrying away a county institution hitched the car to a train and left town with it. The posse that went on a hunt for the jail returned after a careful search empty handed. It I feared Pulaski county will see its jail no more. Tenants are moving; ducks are flying north, and marbles are on exhibition. Verily, spring approacheth. Today only the ducks still go north. The March 1st migration of folks moving
from one residence to another and the spring marble playing are pretty much a thing of the past. It would seem that kite flying should also be included in these forgotten spring rituals. On the front page of the March 17, 1904 issue of the STAR could be found a picture of the recently built Auditorium building along with a listing of its occupants, two years after being built. “This three story brick building was erected on the corner of Main and Superior in 1902 at a cost of $15,000. Today the lower floors and basement are owned by A. M. Leete; the Auditorium is owned and operated by a local stock company and this Auditorium is conceded by the theatrical profession to be the finest theater for a town of Clarksville’s size in the northwest. On the first floor is the post office, in the rear of which, at the side entrance, is the Star office, John Ramsey, Editor. The other section of the first floor (south) is occupied by Leete & Moore’s furniture store.” AD: Are you in love? Perhaps that’s your business, but if you expect to have any papering done at your home this spring—that’s my business—neat work, promptly done, try me and see—C. E. Graham One has to hope that Mr. Graham was a better paperhanger than he was an “ad writer.” A “Hydrotriamidodimethylphenylacridine social” will be given by the C. E. Society at John Neal’s April 1st. Don’t ask, I just write them like a find them, however you can pick out “hydro” (water) and “meth” in all of this, a doctor probably could find other meanings. We probably will never know what it means. Looney Laws: True or not they’re fun to read. Curb your appetite! No one is allowed to bite off another person’s leg in Rhode Island. It’s against the law to tease skunks in MN. In Mesquite, TX, it’s illegal for children to have “unusual haircuts.” In Hartford, CT it’s against the law to educate a dog and in Zion, IL, you are not permitted to give lighted cigars to dogs, cats, or other animals kept as pets.

Parties hash out differences during restitution hearing in Hansen case By Nick Pedley Objections to various restitution requests from victims of former Hampton doctor Brian J. Hansen highlighted a special hearing in Franklin County District Court on March 18. The session followed another hearing that morning in which Judge Colleen Weiland found Hansen guilty of violating the terms of his probation. Hansen pled guilty in May 2013 to one count of Sexual Exploitation by a Counselor or Therapist, a Class D Felony. He was ordered to pay victim restitution to six women named in the case in addition to list of other probationary terms. “This type of hearing is not unusual. This is a little more involved and a little more contested than they largely are, but it’s not an unusual procedure,” said Weiland. “It’s just that most cases, there aren’t as many people interested in it and the restitution portions aren’t quite as contested as this.” Hansen’s attorney, Tammy Gentry,
presented objections to restitution requests from two victims, T.C. and A.S. None of the victims were identified by name due to the sexual nature of the case. The victims’ requests included reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages that were a direct result of Hansen’s conduct during his time as a physician at Franklin General Hospital. Ruth Walker, Restitution Coordinator with the Crime Victim Assistance Division of the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, was called during the hearing to provide witness testimony via telephone. Prosecuting attorney Susan Krisko, Iowa State Assistant Attorney General, asked Walker a list of detailed questions inquiring about the functions of Walker’s office and its procedural protocol. Walker explained the restitution approval process for things like lost wages and medical costs. Once her office receives a request from a crime victim,
a police report request and verification form are sent to local law enforcement to verify the victim’s eligibilty. Any health care providers the victim lists on the request also receive a verification form, and they return it with an itemized statement of services they completed. Once all paperwork is returned, the Crime Victim Assistance Division determines a causal relationship between the requested damages and the crime. “We have a quality-control system that once the compensation specialist recommends the payment, it goes through another compensation specialist who reviews the paperwork and signs off on it a second time,” said Walker. Gentry contested A.S. and T.C.’s requests because she couldn’t verify if the damages were a direct result of Hansen’s criminal conduct by looking at the forms. Walker explained that Iowa Code stipulates her office cannot
release medical information, instead pointing to the scrutinizing system of checks and balances each requests receives. “I suppose that’s why I’ve been called as a witness,” said Walker. “I can look through these files and look through the medical records and state under oath that I’m certain that these are crime related.” A significant portion of the hearing was spent clarifying the various dates of each restitution request. Gentry discovered a data-entry error on one of the victim’s forms that stated the crime began on February 1, 2011, but it actually began in June 2011. The error was irrelevant because no claims were filed during that four-month time frame, but Gentry wanted an explanation about how Walker’s office dated each request. “This was an ongoing thing. When the application comes in, there was no specific date, and we have to have a date to put in the computer,” Walker
said. “The date that they list on the application may be just a month and year from there to another date and month or year. So, we just put the 1st as the date.” Walker verified each contested restution request for T.C. and A.S., which amounted to a total of $2,238.75 and $6,589.62, respectively. The restitution claims were filed both before and after Hansen’s May 2013 guilty plea, which Walker said was typical. “If it’s a crime that was ongoing and it was not discovered or disclosed until a couple years later, and that victim had been in counseling before that, we can determine at most times with the medical records that it is also crime related,” she said. The hearing entered into closed session in the judge’s chambers following Gentry’s witness examination. Weiland explained this was standard procedure because they planned to discuss details of victims’ medical records, which are strickened from the public record.

Hendricks honorable mention CLARKSVILLE – Due to a source omission, a member of the Clarksville boys basketball team was left off of the March 20 Clarksville Star story that included the Iowa Star North All-Conference teams. Jackson Hendricks, a senior member of the Indians’ squad, was voted honorable mention, joining junior teammate Carter Kelm who earned second team status. He averaged 3.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, handed out 16 assists and 36 steals throughout the season. Hendricks’ name was inadvertently left off the original honorable mention list. Below is a corrected version of the allconference teams. 2013-14 Iowa Star North Conference Boys Basketball First Team Kory Kuenstling, Sr., Dunkerton*; Trevor Jacobsen, Sr., Dunkerton*; Austin Newbrough, Sr., Tripoli*; Hunter Meyer, Sr., Janesville; Logan Seiser, Sr., NE Hamilton. * denotes unanimous selection Second Team Jordan Kubitz, Sr., Dunkerton; Jack Thode, Sr., Janesville; Danny Amlie, Sr., Janesville; Nick Shinstine, Jr., Tripoli; Carter Kelm, Jr., Clarksville; Nick Anderson, Sr., Dunkerton. Honorable Mention Caleb Striegel, So., CAL; Jackson Hendricks, Sr., Clarksville; Zach Fisher, Sr., Dunkerton; Joe Friedrich, Jr., Janesville; Nick Jeffers, Jr., NE Hamilton; Carew Vogt, So., Tripoli.

Thank You Partners, Year Two!
I KNOW the suspense has been killing you; after all, it’s been a whole year! Has it been almost more than you can stand? Well then, it’s time to unveil this year’s award winners! This week is Extension and Outreach Week and is being celebrated in most of the 100 extension offices in Iowa. (We do have the coffee pot on, and I think there’s pop in the fridge.) My husband and I spent a combined 16 years on the Extension Council, I was a 4H leader for almost 20 years and on the 4H & Youth Committee about that long, or longer, so I thought I knew quite a bit about the wonderful world of Extension. (Seems I was wrong about that in many ways!)
Extension & Outreach is about so much more than 4H, livestock and crops. Yes, that’s what’s most familiar to us here in rural Iowa. Extension & Outreach is really about people, just like you and me. It’s the mission of Extension & Outreach to educate the people by bringing the campus to the counties. Each year over one million people benefit in some way from the educational programs sponsored by Extension & Outreach. We’re proud of the fact that 1 in 5 kids wear the “clover” (just not on a black shirt!) thanks to the efforts of C. J. Gauger! (A very Happy 100th Birthday to you C. J!). Probably no one in Iowa has done more to support and
The Clover Connection Nancy Jensen Butler County CYC email@example.com
direct the 4H program than this man who was instrumental in bringing the girls and boys clubs together under one umbrella when he served as State 4H Leader from 1959-1979. We educate the Master Gardeners (of which, I am not one, but I can truly appreciate their efforts!) and we promote food safety with our Safe Food Programs. If and when a need is seen in Iowa, you can count on Extension & Out-
reach to address it. To quote Region 20 Director Bob Dodds once again, “We’re feeding people, keeping them healthy, helping their communities to prosper & thrive, and turning the world over to the next generation in better shape that we found it.” This year, three partners were selected for our Butler County Extension & Outreach Appreciation Award; J & C Grocery, Lincoln Savings Bank and Langfritz Seed.
J & C Grocery always goes the extra mile to help the 4H Program, particularly during the Butler County Fair. I’ve heard of some stores making house deliveries, but Scott goes above and beyond by making fair deliveries to our Feed Shed! We appreciate all you do to make our program successful! (Maybe this year we can work on cappuccino deliveries, Scott?) Lincoln Savings Bank is always ready and willing to help sponsor the many programs Extension & Outreach offers during the year. From the drought, to the flood to promoting the use of cover crops, we can always count on your support! Thank you for your continuous and generous support!
Langfritz Seed has single handedly funded the beginnings of two clubs here in Butler County. When we were looking for funding to send people to Shooting Sports training several years back, Brett stepped up to the plate with a donation for 4 trainers to get certification. This year he again is funding our First Lego League club as it buys the robot and necessary supplies for the challenge. Thanks for your continued support and belief in the 4H program, Brett! We think these three recipients are indeed deserving of being our Appreciation Award Winners! Thanks for all you do to support Extension & Outreach and the Butler County 4H Program!

Water Main Breaks County supervisors across the state have been advising homeowners to run their cold water tap for 3 to 5 minutes; fill a glass, and then measure the water temperature. If the water was 40 degrees or less, then you needed to seriously consider running a constant stream of water from your tap to prevent your water main from freezing.
Pipes are usually buried a good 8 inches lower than the typical frost line for our area. With the lack of snow cover and the record breaking cold, the frost has pushed to and beyond that depth, freezing and breaking water mains. Few homeowners realize that the pipe that runs from the street to your home is
YOUR responsibility and is not covered by your homeowners insurance. A rider to the homeowners’ coverage policy or a separate specialty insurance option must be purchased to cover the cost of repairing or replacing your water main. The good news is...spring is coming soon.
