Road Runners hosts book Speech Extravaganza Thursday at North Iowa signing by area author

Eagle Grove Eagle

The Leader


Village Vine

It was an exceptionally interesting afternoon at Road Runners Bar Grundy Register and Grill in Lakota on Sunday, Mar. 29, as patrons were invited to meet author Jen Naumann of the Elmore, MN area at a book signing. Jen Chronicle is the author of young adult Hampton paranormal romance fiction. Jen, a graduate of Blue Earth, MN dedicated her ambitions to writing books. Jen was interested in writing at a very early age. Rather than playing outdoors, she would stay inside to write. After college and marriage and raising four children, she followed her dream with her first publication of “What I’ve Done” in 2012. Having a wild imagination, Jen was a big fan of anything paranormal and unusual, and was a big “Walking Dead” junkie. Her books are praised for being original and unique with a realistic story, love plots and a blend of modern romance. Jen’s story ideas sometimes come to her in dreams, which she vividly remembers, in conversations with friends, or simply pop up in strange places. As her creative mind never shuts down, she mentioned that she sometimes can dream up an entire movie in her sleep. For her to write a book, it takes a month or two for the first draft. Jen also designs her own covers and sometimes designs covers and performs formatting services for other authors. It is her favorite thing to do next to writing. The only part of her writing she hires out for is the editing. Jen does enjoy music while writing – any music that isn’t country. She also notes that each book has a “theme song”. Jen pursues her writing as a fulltime job and prefers to write until family comes home from school. As Jen and her family live on the farm in the Elmore area, her creative writing is done in the corner of their master bedroom. When Jen is not writing on her farm, she enjoys concerts, taking pictures, going to movies or chumming with friends, and especially keeping up with the family. Her advice to other writers is not to give up and to finish each book in full before moving on to another.

What Cheer Paper

Many of Jen Naumann’s readers came to Road Runners to add new books to their collections and were looking forward to Jen’s new release, “Paranormal Keepers”. She sells books in person and online at and Jen has another book signing coming up on June 5 at the Lake Mills Library at 5 p.m.

Donna Heidecker of Road Runners Bar and Grill in Lakota offered a variety of wines during the book signing event, Sunday, Mar. 29. Wines were available to taste, accompanied by cookies, cheese and crackers.

Lakota Firemen’s Annual Breakfast Sunday

The speech students at North Iowa High School invite the public to a night of entertainment this Thursday, Apr. 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the North Iowa School Commons. The students will put on a Speech Extravaganza, which will showcase some of the different performances they have done throughout the speech season. Performances will include individual events, such as acting, storytelling, prose, poetry and solo musical theatre, as well as large group events, such as readers theatre, short film and TV news. In conjunction with the event, high school art students will also display some of the artworks they’ve completed this school year. The evening promises to have the audience laughing, but students will also act out some of the tougher subjects our young people face today. “It’s amazing – the talent here at North Iowa,” said speech coach Cheri Mayland. “If you’re wondering what speech is all about, and want to see some amazing artwork, come to our Extravaganza.” Popcorn will be served, and free will donations will be accepted. Any money raised will go toward the NIHS speech department.

The tornado sirens in Lakota will be activated for testing on the first Tuesday of the month, May through October. The siren will activate at 6:30 p.m. with an oscillating wail (tornado warning), followed by a pause and then a constant, all-clear signal. May 6 - 6:30 p.m. June 3 - 6:30 p.m. July 1 - 6:30 p.m. August 5 - 6:30 p.m. September 2 - 6:30 p.m. October 7 - 6:30 p.m. Residents are reminded to familiarize themselves with this test series and to learn the difference in sounds between the two sirens. Should severe weather develop here, the knowledge of which siren is being sounded could well be vitally important to everyone!



10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, April 8, 2004 The April 2 and 3 productions of the “Wizard of Oz” by the North Iowa High School thespians was in one word, magnificent, with a sold out house each night. The musical was directed by Christina Blodgett, musical director David Kakacek and choreographer Arin Anderson. Bruce and Dawn Heetland of Lakota are proud to announce the birth of a daughter, Shayla Rose, on Friday, April 2, 2004.

The View from Here by Senator Dennis Guth

By Representative Tedd Gassman Iowa House District 7

Iowa Senate District 4 As we approach the end of the session, I find the tone in the Senate a bit tenser. Even my Administration and Regulations committee got more exciting recently. This committee oversees the budgets of 15 state agencies and is usually just about numbers. Recently, we have had all kinds of conflict over hastily patched together bills whose purpose appears to be more political than practical. I will be glad to have that part of the session behind me soon. I am glad to see a bill, concerning human trafficking and sexual exploitation, moving forward. This bill still has a few details to be worked out, but would essentially put bigger penalties on perpetrators and give more support to the victims. Many Iowans are not aware of how prevalent this problem is in Iowa. I would like to make Iowa a state that human traffickers avoid. Wednesday was a special day in the Iowa Senate. It was a privilege for me to join the Senate body in congratulating my Senate Republican colleague, Senator Nancy Boettger. She was honored as the recipient of the 2014 Herbert Hoover Uncommon Public Service Award. I have great respect for the dedication, vision and service Senator Boettger has offered our great state for the past 20 years. I was saddened

Capitol Highlights

to learn last summer she would not be seeking re-election this year—instead choosing to retire. She is a wonderful individual who works tirelessly for her district and all Iowans. She has been outstanding in promoting the pro-life agenda and in her support of traditional marriage. She and her husband, Dave (her clerk for the last 14 years), also have modelled a successful 49 year marriage to those of us in the Senate chambers. Best wishes to Senator Boettger! Thursday, the 8th grade class from Estherville toured the Capitol. They asked some good questions. I hope I encouraged them to study well, especially in history class. I urged them to do so keeping in mind what Edmund Burke said, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” Each of us can make a difference right where we live. Consider these thoughts from Robert Kennedy, “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.” It’s a privilege to serve you at the Capitol. Feel free to contact me at or call me at 641-430-0424.

We will be debating the Agriculture and Natural Resources budget yet today (Wed. April 2). There are several parts to this budget that I think are headed in the right direction. An additional $725,000 will be added to the cost share conservation program. This will be money spent on grassed waterways, terraces, buffer strips, and other soil conservation projects. Also in this bill is money to help close more agricultural drainage wells. Drainage wells were used to drain low areas when we first decided to farm the land in northern Iowa. They probably didn’t cause any problems in the early days of farming, but today those drainage wells could put chemicals, fertilizers, and soil directly into our aquifer. As I understand, most of those drainage wells have been closed, but there are several that are difficult to deal with that are left to close. The state had 269 drainage wells in 1990; that is down to 37 with work being done on eight. The voluntary nutrient reduction system that I was involved in last year has another $2,000,000 added to the budget for a total of 4.4 million dollars. That money can be used for cover crops, strip till, minimum till, and other methods of farming that we use to help grow the crops. I hope that farmers will take advantage of some of these programs. With the hypoxia area in the gulf and some of our waterways and lakes tar-

nished with chemicals and fertilizers, let’s not give any more ammunition to those that complain about our quality of water. This legislation will kill two birds with one stone. Better water quality and better soil conditions. Several colleges were represented at the capitol this week. Personnel from NIACC and ILCC were here along with a contingent from Waldorf College in Forest City. We are working diligently to find the funds to adequately fund our colleges. The University of Iowa also had a group of displays. I once again want to thank each and every constituent from district 7 for allowing me the honor of representing you in this legislature. Even though every vote may not meet with the wishes of all, I do hope that you feel I have represented you to the very best of my ability. Most of what we have left to do is budget bills.

Between the Lines By Laurie Johns, Iowa Farm Bureau Remembering Dr. Scott Hurd His intellect and quiet intensity positively jumped out of the camera lens the first time I interviewed Dr. Scott Hurd. But, I think it was his enthusiasm that threaded its way through every soundbite, every sentence, every column or social media posting he wrote, which set him apart from the rest. When Dr. Hurd passed recently, he leaves a void in a number of areas; the noted veterinarian, epidemiologist, teacher and speaker did hundreds of interviews on national and international media outlets to ‘set the record straight’ and bring common sense and calm to an anxious, out-of-touch and often fear-

ful public. His specialty was talking about antibiotic use in livestock and antibiotic resistance and was never afraid of the pointed questions, tough interviews or critics. His patient nature and science knowledge not only silenced the critics, it won him praise and coverage on such high-profile outlets as the Dr. Oz show, Huffington Post, National Public Radio (NPR), Wall Street Journal, Des Moines Register and countless other newspaper, television and radio shows. His brilliance centered on his ability to boil complicated subject matter and pages of research into easilyunderstandable 20-second sound-bites. He could explain things so well, it made critics or fear-mongers look unin-

formed, hysterical, or just plain stupid. Dr. Hurd did it because he had passion. He had a passion to share agriculture’s side of the story. That’s why he took on the tough interviews, kept his cool, did his homework, kept his answers short and to the point and willingly put himself out there. But, perhaps Dr. Hurd’s true brilliance was his laser-focus on the most important recipient of the message. You see, it was never about sitting across from Dr. Oz, Arriana Huffington or Dan Charles from NPR that was the ‘big deal,’ it was their audiences who mattered most. He wanted the audience to understand about livestock care and food safety. Audiences are consumers; consumers who haven’t been on a farm, haven’t met a farmer, but want reassurance that the food they’re eating is safe. Period. It doesn’t take fancy sound-bites to build trust between today’s farmers and today’s consumers. It takes transparency and a willingness to answer questions in a straight-forward, no-nonsense, passionate and interesting fashion. Dr. Hurd did that. We can all learn from his example. You can tell your story of agriculture in any number of ways, but share it you must. Dr. Hurd would be proud to have another voice of reason like yours setting the record straight. I’d like to think that somehow, somewhere, he’s listening, with a smile. So, speak up! Laurie Johns is Public Relations Manager for the Iowa Farm Bureau

Thursday, April 7, 1994 Albert Sleper, Jr., who recently celebrated his 92nd birthday, bowled with Sleper Sales team for 33 years. He was presented the Distinguished Service Award from the Buffalo Center Lions Club for his work ethic compiled over a period of 44 years. Great job, Albert!

The BCVFD volunteered to take care of preparations and serving. There were over six hundred served this year at Pancake Day. 30 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 12, 1984 Murray Berggren, administrator of the Timely Mission Nursing Home in Buffalo Center and the Titonka Care Center, Titonka, has been confirmed by the Iowa Senate to a seat on the Nursing Home Administrators Board of Examiners. A community meeting to discuss the future of the Rake school buildings was held at Rake Monday evening, April 9. The meeting was conducted by the fivemember committee appointed by the City Council to oversee the building’s operation.

It is a goal they had looked forward to since their incorporation on January 11, 1969. Coaches for the boys track team, Mike Callanan and James Denekas, have a 28 man squad this year who will be going to Eagle Grove to participate in the Eagle Relays. 50 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 9, 1964 Basketball got underway last Friday night to watch the action during the two games put on as a benefit night for the Boy Scout Troop 45. The community would like to thank the men who participated to give entertainment besides giving the Boy Scout fund a boast. The receipts from the games brought about $280 for the Scouts. The library personnel are happy to have a telephone. The local library board has joined with other libraries in the Cooperative Library Program whose central office is the Mason City Public Library. This enables us to have a rotating book collection of 1140 volumes. 60 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 8, 1954 A recent check on the rheumatic fever patients reveals that all are recovering and getting along as well as they could be expected. The B.C. Firemen experienced a very busy week answering four calls, two in town and two in the country. We are going to have to answer to a lot of things someday! What a lot of explaining we are in for when we get asked to account for our predjudices.

RSVP honors Audit complete on volunteers during Winnebago County National Volunteer Week Volunteers in North Central Iowa give back to their communities in a variety of ways every day. RSVP of North Central Iowa is honored to recognize its members during this year’s National Volunteer Week, April 6-12. National Volunteer Week has been proclaimed annually since 1974 as a way to honor volunteers across the country who commit themselves to taking action to address problems and fulfill needs in their communities. The week is a celebration of ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things through service to their communities. Volunteers with RSVP of North Central Iowa focus their efforts primarily in elementary and middle schools across the area, tutoring and mentoring students in reading. “RSVP volunteers have a huge impact on their communities,” RSVP Director Molly Anderegg says. “The positive effect these individuals have on the students and adults they serve is unbelievable. They are helping students improve their reading, providing a safe walking route to school, and reading the newspaper to the sightimpaired, just to name a few. We hear from students, parents, teachers, school administrators and community members about how much they appreciate RSVP volunteers. And the great thing is, the volunteers enjoy the experience as well. It’s a positive program for all involved.” This school year, RSVP has 351 volunteers serving in its literacy programs in Cerro Gordo, Hancock, Winnebago and Worth counties. The volunteers

have been working with 413 students in reading and mentoring programs in 17 schools, plus another 282 students in Pen Pal programs in seven schools. The reading and mentoring programs include Reading Coaches (volunteers who tutor and mentor middle school students), Reading Buddies (volunteers who work with elementary school students as they learn to read) and Breakfast Buddies (volunteers who meet with students while they eat breakfast at school). In addition to its volunteers in area communities, RSVP applauds its 15 Advisory Council board members, also volunteers, who help shape and strengthen its programs throughout North Central Iowa. Local council members include: Joe Angstman of Buffalo Center and Larry Hill of Thompson. Volunteers from Buffalo Center include: Joe Angstman, Pam Angstman, Betty Coxson, Linda Friesenborg, Lynn Greimann Hassebroek, Dolores Griffin, Roderick Hansen, John Laflen, Alice LaMont, Glenda Sapp, Roz Swanson, Arlene Thorland and Ruth Winter. Volunteers from Thompson are: Beverly Aalgaard, Joan Christianson, Shirley Miller and Charissa Olson. Volunteering from Lakota is Rena Steele. Anyone 55 and older who would like to volunteer may contact the RSVP office at 1-888-466-4222 ext. 4256, 641422-4256 or RSVP is sponsored by North Iowa Area Community College and is partly funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service, State of Iowa, United Way of North Central Iowa and local county governments.

Laborshed study continues with second round of survey Winn-Worth Betco continues to work with Iowa Workforce Development’s Regional Research Bureau to complete a Laborshed employment study for the Winnebago and Worth Counties area. This study will examine the labor force from which employers in the Winnebago and Worth Counties area draw their employees and is based upon commuting patterns into the area. The study will assist existing and potential businesses to better understand the size and characteristics of the area’s labor force regardless of political boundaries. A second round of a confidential household telephone survey is being conducted in those identified areas. Survey calls will continue into specific areas until approximately April 21. The questions cover topics such as: employ-

ment status, current and desired wages, current and desired benefits, education level and type of occupation. Survey results will be applied to demographic data to determine the total potential labor force of the Winnebago and Worth Counties area as well as various labor force characteristics. Iowa Workforce Development will not be asking survey takers any identifiable information such as: name, social security number, or date of birth. The results for each county and regional Laborshed analysis can be found at index.html. Anyone with questions about the Laborshed employment study may contact Ryan Murphy at 515-281-7505 or Teresa Nicholson at 641-592-0800.

Spring tree giveaway at Thorpe Park The Winnebago County Conservation Board will once again give away free tree seedlings this spring.

The seedlings will be available from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. that day at the Thorpe Park office, located five miles west of Forest City. The trees will be available on a firstcome, first-served basis, with quantities possibly limited to assure that as many people as possible are able to take advantage of this offer.

Waldorf College students will display their projects in the school’s Art Gallery in Forest City from April 7-25, as part of the Spring Student Art Show. A reception will be held on April 16 at 5:30 p.m., where students will be present to discuss their artwork. “The Spring Student Show provides a place for these students to see their art up on gallery walls, and share their talent with others,” said Dean Swenson, art gallery director and art instructor. This year’s art is from students who are enrolled in design, drawing, and painting classes. “During the year, these classes offer students the opportunity to explore media and techniques, problem solve, and express themselves creatively through the visual arts,” said Swenson. Students displaying artwork in the show include Alexander Horak of Buffalo Center. The Waldorf Art Gallery is open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. when classes are in session. Admission is free and open to the public.

Always call 811 before digging The Common Ground Alliance has again designated April as National Safe Digging Month in 2014. The Iowa Utilities Board joins many other state utility commissions and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners in promoting Safe Digging Month and emphasizing how important it is for all professional excavators and residents in Iowa to call 811 before starting any digging projects throughout the year.

This one toll-free phone call connects to Iowa One Call, which provides contractors and residents with free locating and marking of underground utility facilities such as electric, gas, telecommunications, cable, water, and sewer, indicating where it is safe to dig. Iowa law requires that Iowa One Call be contacted at least 48 hours in advance, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays, before beginning to dig. Calling 811 can save lives, pro-

According to the Common Ground Alliance, a recent national survey revealed that roughly half of Americans are “active diggers” who have done (or are planning to do) some type of digging project at home. Whether you are a professional excavator or an avid do-it-yourselfer, always call 811 before every dig. On April 10, Iowa Utilities Board, Iowa One Call, and Common Ground Iowa representatives will participate in a ceremony at the State Capitol with Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, who will sign a Safe Digging Month Proclamation. Visit to review a series of educational videos and additional information.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
