If by chance the weather turns bad, children will be invited into Ogden Middle School for the event. See ad on page nine this week. Easter egg hunt at Ogden Manor Little tykes from age 1 to 10 are invited to join Ogden Manor residents and staff for an Easter egg hunt Good Friday, April 18 at 10 a.m. (In case of rain, the hunt will be held inside.)

Helping our students get started in band Ogden fourth grade students will be attending a concert Thursday, May 1 at the high school featuring the high school and fifth grade bands. After the concert, they will be invited to the elementary school to try out the different instruments. Band instructors Liz Studer and Jeremy Britton will give personal recommendations as to which instrument is the best fit. Students interested in joining band for the 2014-2015 school year, and their families, are asked to visit the Ogden Middle School music room Monday, May 5 from 4 to 6 p.m. to register. Representatives from Rieman Music will be available to assist those interested in renting or purchasing instruments from them. Do you have a used instrument? If any community members have instruments (that are in working condition) they would like to sell to a new band member or donate to the band program, contact Studer by phone at 515-291-2912 or by email, email@example.com with the type of instrument and a phone number where you can be reached.

Another enterprising class project The Ogden High School Manufacturing Program is building high quality picnic tables and will sell them to add income back into the program. “The picnic tables are made out of treated 2 x 8 material and all
pieces are bolted together, making these tables the strongest out there,” said industrial technology instructor Rick Hamilton. “We have made picnic tables in the past and sold them but these tables are made out of treated lumber
and they are fastened together with bolts, making them even stronger than any table we have built in the past.” If you would like to purchase one of the picnic tables, contact Rick Hamilton at the high school. The

by JERRY BEHN State Senator After a brutal long, cold winter, many of us are eager to return to the outdoors. This means walkers and bicyclists have taken to Iowa’s streets. Iowa motorists need to be aware of bicyclists and pedestrians, as well as the start of construction season. As many of you know, road construction season across Iowa occurs during the day and night. Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) workers will be rebuilding or improving our roadways, fixing bridges and maintaining pavement that has potholes from Iowa’s rough winter weather. During the course of construction season, the Iowa DOT could have hundreds of work zones all across the state. A recent video posted by Des Moines area television stations show exactly what happens when motorists do not pay attention to their surroundings. After an Iowa State trooper pulled a vehicle over along the side of the road, the dashboard camera shows a pick-up truck flying through the air between the squad car and vehicle involved in the traffic stop. The accident is a result of a pickup getting hit from behind because the motorist did not slow down or drive cautiously past the trooper along the side of the road. Though no one was seriously injured, the potentially life-threatening accident demonstrates how motorists must pay close attention to their surroundings at all times during the warm weather months. Driving through construction zones, motorists must obey posted speed limits and other signs in the work area. Drivers should also be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in those work zones. Under the law, the penalties for speeding in a work zone are: • $150 for up to 10 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. • $300 for speeds from 11 through 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. • $500 for speeds 21 through 25 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. • $1,000 for speeds in excess of 25 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. The DOT maintains a variety of ways to track road construction across the state. On its website, www.511ia.org there is a plethora of information regarding roads, construction site locations, and the pace at which traffic around those sites is moving. If drivers need more information they can call 511 or 1-800-288-1047. Motorists also can sign up for Twitter and mobile phone updates.

Sgt. Kyle Bosch’s medevac unit training to save lives
stLt skye Martin, Production and Distribution Officer with Regional Command Southwest Public Affairs in Helmand province, Afghanistan shares a story of an Army medevac unit stationed out of Forbes Field in Topeka, KS. The Army National Guard’s Golf Company, 2-135th General Support Aviation Battalion includes Sgt. Kyle Bosch, 28, an Ogden native; Sgt. Kevin Powers, 28, a Wichita, KS native; and CWO2 John Fulks, 32, from Eudora, KS. The DUSTOFF unit, as the Blackhawk medevac crew is known, are currently at the last remaining coalition force base in Nimroz province, Afghanistan. That base will be closing very shortly, at which time the unit will continue to carry out the medevac mission elsewhere in Afghanistan. by: 1stLt skye Martin FORWARD OPERATING BASE DELARAM II, Afghanistan - The churning blades threw a cloud of dust in the air as the UH-60 Black Hawk prepared to touch down aboard Forward Operating Base Delaram II, Nimroz province, Afghanistan, March 11, 2014. Waiting at the ready by the door of the helicopter, the crew chiefs prepared to make an expedient exit, watching from the window as the Marines on the ground lugged the litter toward the landing zone (LZ). Within a moment of reaching the earth, the doors flew open and the litter was rushed inside.
They seemed to depart as quickly as they had arrived, now with a simulated casualty in tow, already receiving medical care as they began to hover once again above the LZ. The medical evacuation training evolution was designed to test the Army medical evacuation crew’s combat readiness capabilities when conducting an in-flight patient triage on a simulated casualty. The crew is known as “Dust off,” which has been the tactical call sign since adopted by the U.S. Army’s 57th Medical Detachment (Helicopter Ambulance) during the Vietnam War. Chosen from a list of unused call signs, “Dust off” epitomized the missions they carried out, as clouds of dust were thrown into the air when their helicopters took off or landed. In addition, many in the Army medevac community now use the call sign as an acronym for their mission: Dedicated Unhesitating Service To Our Fighting Forces. “We provide casualty evacuation to coalition forces in the immediate area,” said CWO2 Chris Chartrand, a pilot with Golf Company, 2-135th General Support Aviation Battalion. “It gives peace of mind to coalition forces leaving the wire. They go out knowing someone has their back no matter what.” The Army National Guardsmen take a great deal of pride in their
sGt. kyLe BoscH main task of saving soldiers’ lives when called upon. “We have the best mission in the military,” said Army Sgt. Steven Leflar, a crew chief with Golf Co. Everyone on the team was looking forward to deploying for that reason, he said. “This is our first time in Afghanistan,” said Chartrand, a native of Tonganoxie, Kan. “This is one of our smaller units out here. Everyone out here gets along really well; we have a very good relationship with everyone.” Medical evacuations conducted by Army medevac crews in Afghani-
Letter to tHe editor:
Supporting healthy sexual development
It’s time . . . to talk about it! TINA PALMER, Youth and Shelter Services MARCY WEBB, ACCESS
Love My coMputer and the internet. There’s so many interesting web sites to check out, unlimited shopping sites, and of course, it simplifies book work and communications. I don’t buy a computer very often, and when I do I try to buy one that will last me a nice long time. I hate having to load the programs and transfer files. My computers are like my vehicles – I use them till there’s hardly any life left in them. So I wasn’t very happy when I started getting warning messages about how Windows XP operating system was no longer going to be supported, leaving my home computer open to hackers, viruses and other nasty invasions that could destroy the system. I had purchased a new computer for the office last year. Wanting to get the latest, greatest version operating system, I’d ordered Windows 8 for it. Now, a year later, I’m still struggling to figure out how to navigate the new computer. Windows 8 is a royal pain. I hate it. My home computer is set up exactly as I want it for doing web site work, page layout for the flyers and other marketing materials that I create for the horse sanctuary, my photo processing software and slide show creator, and endless files. The computer is new enough that it still works great, so I hated to think of having to replace it just because the operating system is no longer safe. I decided to keep my home computer to use just as it is for my work files, which means I can’t connect it to the internet. I figured I could get by with my laptop for the office. That left the office machine with Windows 8 to bring to the house and connect to the internet with. I do a lot of my grant applications and research on-line, whenever I can find a bit of extra time, and need to be able to work at the house. Windows 8 is simply more trouble than it’s worth, so I brought the office computer down to the house and then purchased Windows 7 online and downloaded the files to install it. Even with high speed internet access, it took hours to download the file. I had to back up all the files on the computer before installing the new operating system. And then I had to reinstall all the programs that I’d just installed on the computer when I purchased it last year. By the time I’d gotten everything done, I’d wasted the better part of a day diddling around with that darned computer. Luckily it was a good day to work indoors. It was windy, cloudy, and cold. That made it easier to stay inside and get the computer work completed. Just the day before we’d had our annual spring cleaning day for the horse sanctuary. It was probably the nicest day we’d ever had for the spring cleaning – warm, sunny, minimal wind, absolutely lovely springtime weather. We washed the stall walls inside and out, even the ceilings and light fixtures in the barn, and painted the faded corner posts and pipe fence corners. Everything looked bright and fresh and clean by the end of the day. We also celebrated little Hope’s first birthday. She’s come a long ways from the frail orphan filly that came to the sanctuary a year ago, growing up strong and healthy. We always celebrate Baylee’s birthday on the spring cleanup day, too. Baylee was the first baby born to a rescued horse. He’s seven years old now. We had pizza for lunch, followed by cake and ice cream, and then gave the horses their birthday goodies. Hope shared her horsey cake made of sweet feed with her babysitter Casey, the 34 year old gelding that watches over her. Baylee shared his sweet feed, apples and carrots with his mom, Soxy. Then we took carrots out to all the other horses and donkeys, and they all enjoyed treats that day. Spring cleanup, with washing the barn stall walls after the long winter, doing paint touchups, picking up trash, and putting away all the winter blankets to make room for summer riding supplies isn’t the most fun day. It’s just plain hard work. But making a pizza party out of it and celebrating the young horses’ birthdays with cake and ice cream, and dressing them up for photos makes it a lot more enjoyable and something we look forward to each year. Now I just need to figure out some way to make cleaning the office and doing computer maintenance or replacement more enjoyable!
Until next time, Ruth B.
TO THE EDITOR: The children and teens of today are our hope for tomorrow. It’s important for us as parents, caring adults and communities to help set young people on the path for a healthy future and support them as they work to create positive change. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and this year’s campaign is focused on youth. It encourages individuals and communities to support healthy sexual development. Young people face many challenges during adolescence. Stereotypes and negative messages in the media don’t make this process easy. By learning and talking about healthy adolescent sexuality, adults are able to support the teens in their lives. It’s time for adults and communities to be a resource to teens so they learn and grow. How can we support teens during this time of change and discovery? Young people need age-appropriate information about healthy sexuality and relationships from trusted adults. The first step is to start an open and honest dialogue. Ask questions and, most importantly, listen. We can all play a role in modeling healthy behaviors, promoting positive skills, and creating safe environments. It’s important to empower the voices of youth and challenge negative, unhealthy messages. It’s okay if you don’t have all the answers. It’s more important to welcome questions and learn together. To create a vision for a future without sexual violence, every voice can play a role in a healthier, safer tomorrow for all. You can use your voice to start the conversation. You can support the voices of young people, and together we can amplify our voices for a healthy future. Locally in Boone County, Youth and Shelter Services Adolescent Pregnancy and Prevention and the Assault Care Center partner together to serve youth and teach about healthy sexuality. There is also a coalition of providers that meet monthly to discuss sexual assault in our community. Please contact 515-432-3606 to learn more about the Boone County Coalition against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
stan perform to the standard of the “golden hour,” the hour immediately following traumatic injury in which medical treatment to prevent irreversible internal damage and optimize the chance of survival is most effective. Medevac crews strive to deliver the wounded personnel to the nearest medical facility within this hour-long window, measured from the time the crew first receives a call from the unit. Having rehearsed many times before, they know exactly what each crew member is capable of and how they will react in any given situation. “I’m very satisfied with the training that went on,” said Leflar. “It’s important that we train like this any chance we get. This training does and will continue to save lives.” Medevac crews have been operating out of FOB Delaram II in support of coalition forces patrolling in the surrounding areas of Helmand province. “If troops are out in the field, they know we’re here,” said Leflar, a native of Denver, Colo. “This is one of the best groups of guys I’ve worked with.” The crew will continue to train for future operations while stationed at FOB Delaram II until the base is handed over to 4th Brigade, 215th Corps, Afghan National Army.

Instead of revealing a written code of law and a system of worship, He spoke to the fathers through visions, dreams, and angels (Genesis 15:1; Genesis 22:11,15; Genesis 31:11; Genesis 31:24; Genesis 46:2; Numbers 12:6; Numbers 24:4,16). God limited His revelation during this long age, lasting thousands of years. Mosaic Age Here the name springs from the great lawgiver, Moses. During this period God expanded His method of dealing with man by choosing a nation (Israel – Deuteronomy 7:6-8). Man was now ready for additional revelation from God. Through Moses, God set down a definite written code for social, political, and religious life, with the Ten Commandments as its center (Exodus 20). Christian Age The name here refers to Christ, the “author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2). The chief characteristic here is that God now turns from a family and a nation to the whole world (John 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 1:5; Romans 16:25-26). Now the grand purpose of God is fulfilled through His Son (Hebrews 1:1-2); the redemption of all mankind on earth (those who are willing to be saved by the Gospel or “perfect law of liberty” (James 1:25). Doesn’t this make God’s plan incredibly easy to see and understand?! He prepared mankind, over the course of thousands of years, to be ready for the Messiah to arrive so He could save us from our sins! Some have claimed that God failed in His first “try” under the Old Law but NOW, in the New Law, we can see what He has done!

Sex Abuse is not confined to the big city or to regions outside of our own. Sex Abuse happens right here in our county. Unfortunately reported instances of sex abuse are on the rise in Boone County. During 2013 Boone County had a reported 41 incidents involving sex abuse. This is close to the same number of reports in 2012 of 40 reported incidents. Based on the latest research, a large number of incidents of sex abuse are not reported. A recent study suggests that only 3% of all sex abuse done to children is reported. Unfortunately, a lot of the non-reporting is due to the victim feeling ashamed or guilty. Or sometimes the victims feel no one will believe their story. In order to help victims it is important there is awareness. To increase awareness it is necessary to dispel the myths about sex assault especially for children. Some of these myths include: MYTH 1: A large percentage of sex abuse incidents are false allegations. - This is False. In fact in several studies the actual rate of false accusation is under 10% - In a study by Oates, Jones and Denson the rate of false accusation was 2.5% in a study of 551 different
Boone county attorney Daniel Kolacia, left, and Boone county supervisor steve Duffy, proclaiming april 7 through april 11 as crime Victims rights week. they also recognized april as sex assault awareness month. incidents. MYTH 2: Children who are abused will show physical symptoms of their abuse. - False, over 95% of cases will come up normal in a sex assault kit. - Childrens’ bodies heal very quickly, usually within 48 hours a test kit will show no physical symptoms. In fact, in one study, the exam failed to find any damage after
teenagers gave natural birth. MYTH 3: Children who are abused will immediately tell their parents. - False, this rarely takes place. In a survey of over 3,000 women roughly 43% reported that they have been sexually abused and failed to report this abuse until over five years after the incident. Roughly 26% stated they told no one about this abuse.
- A child perpetrator will typically seek out children who will not likely tell the authorities. - A child victim a lot of times will feel ashamed about what happened to them or blame themselves for what their abuser has done. MYTH 4: Children are more likely to make false accusations about their abuse. - In a recent study an abuser admitted to molesting ten children and authorities found video evidence of the abuser abusing the children. Despite this strong evidence of the crime the children either minimized what occurred or simply said nothing occurred. - Children do not have the life experience or the understanding about what sex abuse is and therefore will likely minimize the abuse or deny it altogether. There are many more myths about sex abuse especially when it comes to children. Fortunately Boone County has an organization that helps dispel these myths and helps victims of domestic violence and sex abuse. The Boone County Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence is this organization. The Boone County Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence consists of volunteers from many government and non-profit agencies who dedicate their expertise and time to serve victims here in Boone County. Please like us on Facebook “Boone County Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence” or call 515-432-3606 to learn more on how you can help.

Operation Re-leaf event set for Ogden A popular program offering landscape quality trees at a deep discount to Alliant Energy customers will be held at Don Williams Park, 610 H Avenue, north of Ogden, from 4:30 to 6 p.m., May 1. Alliant Energy’s Operation ReLeaf is a program to help Alliant Energy customers save energy in their homes using trees to provide shade during the summer and create wind breaks during the winter. For maximum energy efficiency, shade trees should be planted within 30 feet of the east and west and evergreens should be planted as a windbreak on the north and west of the home. Through the program, Alliant Energy residential customers may purchase high quality landscaping trees for $25 each. These trees typically retail for between $65 and $125. Advanced order is highly recommended and advance purchase is limited to two trees per household. In the event there are extra trees available on distribution day, those trees will be released for purchase at that time. Order forms are available online at www.alliantenergy.com/ releaf. “Planting a diverse mix of trees on your property and in your neighborhood will reduce the likelihood of losing a large number of trees to forest health threats,” said Paul Tauke, state forester and chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Forestry Bureau. Tauke said they are encouraging homeowners who do not intend to treat for emerald ash borer to plant a replacement tree within 30 feet of the existing ash tree. Foresters have been working with local partners to create community tree inventories that will
guide future tree planting efforts to keep a healthy mix of tree species. The most recent tree survey for Boone County communities finds 27% of the trees are maple, followed by ash at 18% and crabapple at 10%. The DNR has a target for communities that no more than 10% of the trees are from any one species, and no more than 20% is from one genus. Trees available at each distribution event are determined by the local tree species inventory. For Ogden, species available include hackberry, Kentucky coffeetree, swamp white oak, tuliptree, sassafras, chinkapin oak, littleleaf linden glenleven, flowering crabapple purple prince and white pine. Shade trees are 5 to 8 feet tall in 5 to 7 gallon containers and conifers are 3 to 5 feet tall. “All trees are purchased through a bidding process to promote local nurseries,” said Tauke. “This is a great way for homeowners to get a quality tree at an affordable price.” A workshop lead by Operation ReLeaf coordinator Laura Wagner, Iowa Urban Tree Council president Stephanie Houk-Sheets and Trees Forever field coordinator Brad Riphagen will discuss ways to avoid common mistakes that often result in dead trees will be held at 5:15 p.m. during this tree distribution. The 30 minute workshop will cover root flare and proper planting depth, correcting encircling roots, proper mulching and watering, correcting pruning to reduce future storm damage, planting around buildings for energy efficiency and emerald ash borer. Just a few of the advantages of yard trees are: • Decrease in household heating
and cooling costs • Increase in property values • Decrease in storm water runoff, which may reduce flooding events • Beauty and personal enjoyment Studies have found that by having tree lined streets more people spend time outside which can improve activity and lower their body mass index, especially in kids. Stud-
ies also link trees to reduced asthma rates. Operation ReLeaf, is funded by Alliant Energy and administered by the Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau with assistance from local partners, like the Boone County Conservation Board. Operation ReLeaf participants must be Alliant Energy residential customers.

BOONE COUNTY ORDINANCE NO. 63A BOONE COUNTY SNOW REMOVAL AN ORDINANCE AMENDING BOONE COUNTY ORDINANCE #63 BY AMENDING SECTION 3 , SUBSECTION C (1) BY ADDRESSING THE REIMBURSEMENT FOR MAILBOXES DAMAGED BY BOONE COUNTY EQUIPMENT DURING SNOW REMOVAL OPERATIONS. ORDINANCE #63 AS AMENDED IS BOONE COUNTY ORDINANCE #63A AS FOLLOWS. Be It Enacted by the Board of Supervisors of Boone County, Iowa: SECTION 1. Purpose. The purpose of this ordinance is to establish this County’s policy and level of service in respect to clearance of snow or ice and maintenance of its secondary road system during the winter months, as pursuant to the provisions of Section 309.67, Code of Iowa. This policy and level of service are to be implemented within the amount of money budgeted for this service, and as contained in this County’s secondary road budget as submitted to and approved by the Iowa Department of Transportation and adopted by the Board of Supervisors. SECTION 2. Level of Service. Clearance of snow or ice and maintenance of the secondary road system during the winter months is primarily for the benefit of the local residents of this County. Each storm has individual characteristics and must be dealt with accordingly. The portion of the roadway improved for travel will have upon it snow and ice in a compacted condition. These conditions may be continuous, or they may be more concentrated on hills, in valleys, curves, and/or intersections. The County’s existing snow removal equipment will be utilized for this purpose. All clearance of snow and ice, sanding, salting, and other maintenance respecting winter conditions shall be accomplished within the amount of money budgeted for this service. The entire width of that portion of the road improved for travel may not be cleared of snow, ice, compacted snow and ice, or frost. Snow cleared from that part of the roadway improved for travel shall be placed on or in the adjacent shoulder, ditch, or right-of-way. Snow can be expected to accumulate adjacent to the traveled portion to the extent that a motorist’s sight distance to both the left and right may be greatly reduced or impaired. The snow removed from intersections will be piled in its corners in piles of unequal height. The line of sight, sight distance, or visibility of motorists approaching these intersections may be greatly reduced or impaired. The County shall not be responsible for snow pushed or otherwise placed on the roadway or shoulder by others. Motorists shall drive their vehicles during these conditions with additional caution and watchfulness, especially in respect to the surface of the roadway, and reduced or impaired visibility, and are advised to reduce their speed at least 25 miles per hour below the legally permitted or advised under normal conditions. In respect to roadways that have only one lane open, further extreme watchfulness and caution should be exercised by the motorist, and their speed should not exceed 10 miles per hour. During these conditions no additional warning or regulatory signs will be placed that warn of impaired sight distances, visibility at intersections, road blockages, one-lane conditions, or that the road surface is slick or slippery, or what the advised speed should be. SECTION 3. Sequence of Service. In the implementation of snow and ice control and other maintenance of the
County’s secondary road system during the winter months, the County Engineer shall select the actual sequence of roads to be cleared as provided for in this section of this Ordinance, and shall determine when drifting, wind velocity, and additional snow or snowstorms require that the snow removal equipment be removed from the roadway, or that additional clearance of paved routes be accomplished prior to the clearance of gravel and dirt roads. The County Engineer’s professional judgment shall prevail. A. Paved Routes. (1) The initial effort will be to get all paved routes open to one-lane traffic as soon as possible. (2) After one-lane travel is possible, subsequent snow removal will be carried on during normal working hours, based on existing and forecast weather conditions. (3) The truck-mounted snow plows and spreaders will not normally be in operation between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. (4) When required, due to drifting snow, motor graders may be used to keep the paved roads open and the opening of gravel roads may be delayed. (5) It is not the policy of the County to provide a “dry” pavement condition or pretreat pavements prior to the weather event. (6) After roads have been plowed as provided in this section, bridges, hills, curves, railroad crossings, stop sign intersections and the paved road lying west of United Community School located in Section 29-84-25 may have placed on them, salt, sand, or other abrasives. These bridges, hills, curves, railroad crossings, stop sign intersections and the paved road lying west of United Community School located in Section 29-84-25 will not be resanded, resalted, or have other abrasives replaced on them during overtime hours. This sequence of service shall normally be performed only between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays observed by County employees. B. Unpaved Roads. (1) The first priority will be to provide one-lane traffic to each occupied dwelling, from at least one direction, as soon as possible after the storm has passed. (2) After one-lane travel is possible, subsequent snow removal will be carried on during normal working hours, based on existing and forecast weather conditions. (3) Motor graders and/or truck plows will not normally be in operation between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. Gravel roads may not be plowed if the wind is causing continual drifting. (4) Snow may not be removed from roads designated as Level B Maintenance. C. Private Drives. (1) The County will not clear snow from private drives. Normal snow removal operations may result in snow being deposited in private drives. Snow from private drives shall not be placed on the roadway or shoulders. All snow equipment may be called off the road if snow and/or blowing snow reduces visibility to hazardous working conditions, in the professional judgement of the Engineer or his designated representative. During snow removal operations, if the snow plow damages a mailbox Boone County will reimburse the affected party. Reimbursement shall be up to $75.00 dollars for the replacement of the mailbox, upon the submittal of a receipt for materials. If the affected party requests reimbursement and no receipt for materials is submitted, Boone County will then pay $25.00 dollars. No payment for labor
shall be allowed. There is no time limit after a snowstorm in which any of the above sequence of clearance, on paved or unpaved roads shall take place. SECTION 4. Limitation of Service. The policy and level of service provided for in this Ordinance shall not include the performance of the following services: A. Sanding, salting, or placing of other abrasives upon the roadway that are slick, slippery, and dangerous due to the formation of frost. B. Sanding, salting, or placing other abrasives upon paved roadways due to freezing precipitation that occurs outside the County’s usual working hours. C. Placing of additional warning or regulatory signs warning of impaired sight distances, visibility at intersections, road blockages, one-lane conditions, or that the road surface is slick or slippery, or what the advised speed should be. D. Sanding, salting, or placing abrasives upon any road, except for paved roads. SECTION 5. Emergency Conditions. A. The sequence of service may be suspended during “Emergency” conditions. An “Emergency” condition shall be considered as one where a loss of life is probable, where a serious injury has occurred, or where extensive loss of property is imminent. These conditions are to be verified through the County Engineer or the Board of Supervisors. The County will respond to all “Emergency” conditions, either during or after a snowstorm. B. The provisions of the Ordinance shall be further suspended in the event the Governor, by proclamation, implements the State disaster plan, or the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, by proclamation, implements the County disaster plan. If such occurs, the County personnel and equipment shall be immediately subject to the directions of the Governor or the Chairperson of the Board of Supervisors. SECTION 6. Damages. Boone County will not be responsible or liable for damages sustained to, or because of, vehicles parked or abandoned in the right-ofway. SECTION 7. Repealer. All ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict with the provisions of the ordinance are hereby repealed. SECTION 8. Severability Clause. If any section, provision, or part of this ordinance shall be adjudged invalid or unconstitutional, such adjudication shall not affect the validity of the ordinance as a whole or any section, provision or part thereof not adjudged invalid or unconstitutional.

Ogden track teams Bulldogs and Toreadors face off kick off the season Ogden Bulldogs took first in three events at Panorama Monday, April 7 and finished third in a field of seven teams. I was really happy with the way the boys competed,” said Coach Rick Hamilton. “They showed up to do well and that is exactly what they did.” Ogden placed in every event except two and had two people place in five events. According to Hamilton, even the young guys competed hard and did what he knew they could do. “The leadership by the older guys was outstanding as they not only competed well but they assisted the younger guys by offering instruction and encouragement. “It is almost like a different team than we have had in the past. The hard work the boys have put in by lifting weights and working to become faster is starting to pay off. And if they continue working, it will get even better yet. “These guys are easy to coach because more than anything else they want to win. When they want to win they do all the workouts and they do them with high intensity. They do not complain and they help each other to get the job done.” Winning the shot put was Treston Hagen with a throw of 46’ 9.5”. Distance runner Trey Thompson was the distance champion, placing first in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:04.76, and the 3200 meter run, finishing in 11:05. Claiming runner-up spots were Grant Heineman (high jump), Owen Haberer (long jump), Austin Lentz (100 meter dash), Andrew Stumbo (3200 meter run) and the 4x200 meter relay (Haberer, Lentz, Caleb Frye and Jon Thompson.)
