Museum show highlights quilts old and new

Heartwarmers Quilt Guild and the Buffalo Center Historical Society invite the public to an old and new quilt show on Saturday, Apr. 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Heritage Town Center.

North Iowa senior Caleb Ricke topped off the Speech Extravaganza last Thursday night at the school with his performance of “Freak Flag” from Shrek the Musical, for which he received a standing ovation. This was one of two pieces he took to the individual All-State speech festival this year, and Caleb has the rare distinction of being selected for All-State during each of the four years of his high school career. In fact, he is the only North Iowa student to have accomplished this feat in the state Speech Association’s record books dating back to 1979. His first trip to All-State came as a freshman in 2011, when he was selected for his prose piece, “The Web Files”. In 2012, he took an acting piece, “Bein’ Crazy”, and last year he was selected for another acting piece, “The Tell Tale Heart”. This year, Caleb took both an acting piece, “The Black Cat”, and his solo musical theatre piece, “Freak Flag” to the individual All-State festival. Caleb has also been a part of two groups selected for the large group All-State speech festival. Last year, he performed an ensemble acting piece along with Lexis Julsrud-Wertjes and Jon Wubben, and this year, he went to All-State for group improv, along with Jon Wubben, Lexis Julsrud-Wertjes and Kayla Limberg. Caleb plans to pursue his love of theatre by majoring in performance arts in college. Look for more photos from the North Iowa Speech Extravaganza in next week’s Tribune.

Ecumenical services City pursues school for Holy Week crossing on Highway 9 Several churches in Buffalo Center are joining forces to celebrate Holy Week, 2014. “We call this week holy because it brings together the elation, the uncertainty, the despair and emptiness that lead up to rebirth of hope at Easter,” suggested Rev. Bill Peake. Individual congregations begin with the Palm Sunday “Hosannas” on Sunday, Apr. 13. Bethlehem Lutheran, Buffalo Center United Methodist, First Congregational and First Reformed Church will coordinate Maundy Thursday worship to be held on Thursday, Apr. 17 beginning at

7 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The Lord’s Supper will be shared with the ecumenical community at that time. Rev. Brad DeVries will deliver the message, “Bread of Life”. This group will be joined by the First Baptist Church on Friday, Apr. 18 at 7 p.m., when the community gathers at First Congregational Church for the Community Good Friday Services, where Pastor Deb Devine will deliver the message, “We Are Not Finished”. Offerings will be received at both services to support the wide variety of Ministerial Association ministries in the north Iowa community throughout the year. “Holy Week is the hinge for the Christian year and our Christian faith,” said Peake. “No matter which church anyone attends, the last week of Jesus’ earthly life is one that every Christian recognizes as central to what we believe.” The entire community is invited to attend these services to celebrate Holy Week.

The Buffalo Center City Council is looking into putting in a school crossing along Highway 9, following a request from the public. The proposed crossing would include a rollout stop sign, which would be placed in the roadway on school days for 45 minutes before school starts and for 45 minutes after school lets out. An exact location for the school crossing has not been decided, and the City will need approval from the Iowa Department of Transportation to install it. The school does maintain a bus stop in the south part of town, near the First Reformed Church. The Council passed a motion to proceed with research and documentation on adding the school crossing, which they hope to have implemented by the start of the new school year this fall. In other business, the Council hired lifeguards for the City’s swimming pool this summer, including full time guards Jessica Wubben and

Carly Main and part time guards Paige Hassebroek and McKhayla Paul. The Council also approved paying $200 to reimburse mileage for Red Cross instructor Ree Pederson of Lake Mills to provide classes for lifeguards at the Buffalo Center pool, as well as $150 to pay for five Red Cross lifeguarding books, which lifeguards will use for classes. Pool wages and admission costs will remain the same as last season. Pool Tech Midwest is scheduled to begin resurfacing the Buffalo Center Swimming Pool beginning May 5, weather permitting. The work is expected to take a few days, and the tentative opening day at the pool is Saturday, May 24. The City still has not received any applications for the T-ball coaching position, and a coach will need to be found in order for this program to be held this summer. The City received two bids for the Buffalo Center Police Department’s old

Chevy Trailblazer, and the Council accepted the high bid of $2,550 from Don Gruis. The City’s new police car still needs to be outfitted with a radio repeater, and Police Chief Matt Holmquist received a quote for the equipment and installation from Electronic Engineering of Mason City in the amount of $2,575. The Council advised Holmquist to get the final cost in writing from the company and to seek additional quotes, as previous work on the car by Electronic Engineering exceeded their estimate by more than $2,000 The Council accepted the resignation of Bev Heitland as cleaning person at City Hall and will advertise the job opening. The Council will hold a public hearing on a budget amendment ahead of next month’s meeting on May 14, to reflect about $230,000 in unforeseen expenditures during the current fiscal year.


OPINION Capitol Highlights

Way back when 10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, April 15, 2004 The effort to expand Golden Oval Eggs, the liquid egg production facility near Thompson, was boosted last week with a $450,000 economic development loan from Heartland Power Cooperative, Thompson. The Cooperative was notified by the USDA-Rural Development that it will receive the grant money from the USDA Rural Economic Development Loan Program to help Golden Oval Eggs finance the construction of a new feed mill. Buffalo Center’s tornado siren control box received a facelift last week by Paul Armstrong of the city work force who applied a can of bright red spray paint to the exterior of the box affixed to the corner of the former fire station on 1st St. NW. It is from here the tornado alert sirens are sounded at 10:15 a.m. each Friday in April. 20 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 14, 1994 It was a great day to be outside in this sector of North Iowa. Many farmers began applying nitrogen and working their ground. The first part of the week rain came close to a couple of inches. “The North Iowa Athletic Booster Club is progressing with plans to install baseball lights at the Bison baseball field. Saturday, May 14, has been scheduled as the date volunteer workers will complete the project by erecting six 80’ wooden poles with lights attached,” according to Dona Haisman, club president. Plans are to have the system up and completed by the first home baseball game, May 23. Total cost is expected to be about $27,500. 30 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 12, 1984

“Three Seniors of the Bisonette track team have been named tri-captains for the 1984 season,” according to Coach Terry Miller. They are Vonda Lemaster, Pam Danger and Kris Grimes. Buffalo Center Jaycees have provided an interesting and challenging program on gun safety for ages 8-14. Jay Dudding headed the program with Mike Hassebroek, Tom Holland, Jon Steinfeldt, and Mark Landheer. Awards were handed out to participants during Parents’ Night held at the Community Room of the Farmers Trust & Savings Bank. 40 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 11, 1974 The Buffalo Center School’s Future Homemakers Association (FHA) Chapter is planning an Easter egg hunt for children of the Community, Saturday, April 13, in the Post office Park. A prize will be awarded to the youngster finding the most eggs. Miss Linda Hardy is the Chapter Advisor. The final meeting of the PTA in this school year will get underway Monday, April 15 in the Informal Study Center. Mrs. Stanley Venteicher, President of the PTA, says an excellent program has been arranged. Mrs. David Grimes assumes the office of new President, Mrs. Marvin Heyes, Vice-President, Mrs. Alvin Landheer, Secretary and Mrs. George Wempen, Treasurer. 50 Years Ago Tribune Files of Thursday, April 16, 1964 The VFW Auxiliary met on April 6.

Several new cases of rheumatic fever have been reported these last few days. They are Stanley Bond, Carolyn Hickok, Mrs. John Karels, Jr. and Kathleen Betels. Some have been released from the hospital and confined to their home in bed.

The Iowa House passed a resolution calling for a repeal of a California law that forbids the sale of eggs produced by hens kept in cages that don’t meet certain size and space requirements. Representative Helen Miller and Pat Grassley were cosponsors of that resolution. The current California law would go into effect in 2015. The California law requires egg laying hens to be in pens with enough space so the animal can stand up, turn around, lie down, and fully extend their limbs. Most of the eggs produced in Iowa could no longer be sold in California. According to Grassley and Miller, the resolution unconstitutionally infringes upon the commerce clause of the Constitution of the United States. That would be a detriment to this nation’s consumers and farmers. Iowa is the nation’s number one egg producing state. In 2013, 15 billion eggs were produced in the state and, according to the Iowa Egg Council, that means almost one out of every five eggs produced in the U.S. last year came from Iowa. The methods used by Iowa’s egg producers are wide-spread throughout the United States. “The effect of California’s legislation is to increase consumer prices, create financial hardship on low-income families and deny egg farmers the right to access the nation’s market,” Grassley said, reading from the resolution. Iowa is one of a handful of states that have sued to try to get federal courts to declare the California law unconstitutional. The resolution that passed the Iowa House Thursday, April 3 calls congress to act on the issue as well. This resolution was a bipartisan effort by Helen Miller, a Democrat from Fort Dodge and Pat Grassley, a Republican from New Hartford. For the last couple of weeks, oversight committees have been working overtime. A couple of weeks ago, it was found that some past state employees were released of their duties at the beginning of the Branstad administration. Some would believe that there may be some favoritism involved in who

The View from Here by Senator Dennis Guth Iowa Senate District 4 dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov

It’s becoming evident that our early adjournment for the 2014 session has been a mirage that disappears as we get closer to it. I had hoped the session would end on April 17, but it’s obvious we will need at least a few days to get things buttoned up for the year. Perhaps one of the best things we did this week is the Social Host Bill, SF 2310 which passed 47-0. This bill punishes adults for allowing the consumption of alcohol by nonfamily mixers on their property. The bill was watered down a little from its original form but will provide a state wide minimum standard while allowing local governments the ability to enact stiffer standards for their city/county. This bill has been pushed by

high school students for several years. Hats off to all those students for their diligent work to get this passed. Of interest to Iowa sportsmen was last week’s bill which was unanimously passed, allowing the use of a crossbow during the late muzzle loading season. I am personally acquainted with a few senior hunters who have begun to find bow hunting a challenge and hope this bill allows them to enjoy the sport for many more years. There has been lots of interest in the bill that would legalize suppressors on firearms. This is one of the bills that has broad bipartisan support, but will not come up for a vote because of the Senate leadership. There are many who say they don’t vote for the party, that they vote for the individual. I

NORTH IOWA HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

Chance Mayland

Senior Chance Mayland has been involved in cross country, track, large group speech, National Honor Society and FFA.

agree with that sentiment, but this is one of several cases that proves a different point. There are Democrats who would support this bill so you can feel you are supporting Second Amendment Right when you vote for the individual. In fact, unless the leadership in the Senate is changed by a change in majority party, those pro-gun Senators will never get to vote on any of these bills. Leadership is key to passing anything regarding pro-life, traditional marriage, or budget reductions. This session we’ve heard several times from Senate Democrats about the minimum wage. I’d like to share what I read on that subject a few weeks ago in a national magazine. The CEO of a company was giving a tour of the company a few years ago. One stop was at their warehouse, where about 20 employees were at work. When the CEO was asked how much the company paid these employees, he had to admit he wasn’t sure. He pulled aside one of the employees and asked, “How much do we pay you?” Her response was, “Minimum wage.” Puzzled, she asked, “Is there a problem?” That night, as the CEO thought back on that incident, he was troubled. “What message are we sending to these employees?”—he thought. “We are telling them that if we could legally pay them less, we would. What is that doing for morale?” The next week, all these employees received a $.25-$.50/hour raise. Then, the CEO met with his board to determine how much they could pay each employee, and still meet their obligations to shareholders. The result was more than just an increase in wages, it was an increase in the sense of value each employee had of themselves. This double benefit could not have been legislated. Raising the minimum wage could have changed the economic picture for these employees, but would have done little for their morale. They’d still have the attitude that the company would pay them less if they could. A heart change did more than a law change. Let’s consider the bullying bill that we passed some weeks ago. Somehow, as we debated that bill, I sensed it was more about retaliating against the bullies than it was about stopping bullying. Part of the language stated that we wanted to change the “culture” of the schools. The Oxford Dictionary defines culture as “the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively.” When we talk about changing a culture, we are talking about changing something external to ourselves. I suggest that, there again, the best way to achieve this change is not with a law but with a heart change. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is the only law needed to regulate bullying when the heart is right. So, how do we change the heart? Our heart is wounded because we all have a sense of guilt. Some say this guilt comes from society that judges us too harshly. But the Bible and our own experience tell us that we feel guilty because we are guilty. We all would like to do “good,” but we know that we have at some time behaved badly. I’m grateful that this month we celebrate Easter. Easter is a time when we remember that there is a cure for a wounded heart. If we admit that we have done wrong and desire to turn away from it, we can ask God for forgiveness through the blood of His Son. When we do that, there can be a change of heart, which results in a change in our lives. As always, you can contact me at dennis. guth@legis.iowa.gov or call me at 641-4300424. It is a privilege to serve you. Have a great Easter season!

would be a part of that new team. Some of those dismissals were done in a secretive way, and the Governor is being blamed for some that were given severance pay. He denies knowing about those agreements. We have spent an inordinate amount of time as a legislative body working through this. Some want to exploit a situation that has happened many times in the past. The house passed legislation that will correct some of the flaws in how that new team will be chosen. It defines “personal settlement agreement”, the law makes clear that personal settlement agreements shall not contain any confidentiality of nondisclosure provision that attempts to prevent the disclosure of personal settlement agreements. It makes an open record to the public of the fact that a public employee “resigned in lieu of termination” or was demoted. Finally, it would require personnel settlement agreements to be posted on the Internet. I am proud of the way the House has responded to this issue. Until this news broke a couple of weeks ago, I don’t believe anyone here in the House knew that these agreements existed. It’s not that they are not necessary, but if exercised, the public has the right to know. This bill, if signed by the Governor, will assure this. I encourage anyone to contact me with questions, concerns, and new ideas on how we can improve Iowa even though the 2014 session is coming to an end. It is an honor to be your Representative, and I will continue working hard for all of you and for the great state of Iowa. Rep.

Winnebago County Board of Supervisors Monarch butterfly population

Published in Buffalo Center Tribune, Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Buffalo Center deadline is Friday Noon.

By now, most everyone knows that the Monarch butterfly population is at an all-time low. In addition, it does not appear that the population will significantly increase any time soon. Fortunately, though, we are learning more and more about why this is happening and, through a concerted effort, we may be able to reverse this ominous trend. We now know that a combination of extreme weather events and humancaused habitat loss are contributing to the unprecedented decline of the Monarch butterfly. The past two summers, especially the summer of 2012, were very dry in the Midwest, meaning there was less milkweed available for the Monarchs. (Monarchs depend upon milkweed, since it is the only plant their caterpillars will feed upon.) In addition, last spring was extremely cold and wet in the Midwest, including the 12” snowfall that hit our area in early May. That meant that the first generations of butterflies were slow to develop and late to migrate north. This all lead to a very unproductive breeding season last summer, causing an already low population to continue to decline. But, weather has not been the only culprit. As our demand for biofuels continues to increase, more land is being put into crop production, meaning less milkweed is available for the Monarchs. In addition, most of our crops are now of the genetically-modified, herbicide-tolerant varieties. This means that more herbicides are being used on corn and soybean fields, eradicating the few milkweed plants that may still be around, and eliminating many of the nectar-producing flowers that the adult Monarchs need in order to fatten up for their migration. In fact, recent studies have shown that the decline in the Monarch population in recent years directly correlates to the increased use of GMO crops. And, this decline has been exacerbated by the extreme weather events we have experienced. To quantify the Monarch’s population status, scientists measure how large their wintering colonies are in Mexico each year. At one time, the

Monarch population covered almost 52 acres of Mexican mountain forests. But, two years ago, that number was down to a little over 7 acres, and last year the butterflies covered less than 3 acres of forested land. This past winter, the amount of forest covered by Monarch butterflies was just over an acre and a half—the lowest it’s been since the Monarch’s wintering area was first discovered in 1975. In other words, wintering Monarch butterflies now cover an area smaller than the size of two football fields. So what, if anything, can be done about this trend? Of course, we have very little control over the weather, although many scientists believe that the extreme weather events we’ve experienced lately are possibly due to a changing climate. And, it doesn’t appear that GMO crops are going away anytime soon; so agricultural herbicide use will not decrease and may, in fact, continue to increase. But, on a small scale, there are things that each of us can do, and now is the time to prepare for the Monarchs that will soon be returning. First of all, and perhaps most importantly, we can plant milkweed wherever possible to replace what has been lost. There is no doubt about it…The more milkweed that is available, the more successful Monarch breeding will be. And we can also plant a variety of native, nectar-producing flowers, as well. These flowers provide the energy-rich food that the adult Monarchs need to fuel their journey south in the fall. Finally, we can also reduce or eliminate our own use of pesticides. Many pesticides are not species-specific, meaning they indiscriminately kill a wide variety of insects or plants, including butterflies and their food sources. Limiting their use helps to keep nature in balance. It’s obvious that the Monarch population is in serious trouble. But, if we all work and do what we can in our small corner of the world, the global picture will also improve over time. As a result, maybe years from now, we can take pride in our accomplishment of bringing back the iconic Monarch butterfly!

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!

Track and field underway at Osage The North Iowa track and field season kicked off last Monday, Apr. 7 at Osage, where the boys placed fourth and girls took sixth in their first meet of the year. The boys did well in the relays, with first place finishes in the 4x800, 4x200 and 4x400. Connor Smith also took a first place finish in the 1600 meter run, and Spencer Armstrong placed second in the 200 meters. Osage took first place among the boys with a score of 132, followed by Saint Ansgar 128, West Fork 102, North Iowa 72, Cresco 60, Nashua-Plainfield 34, RRMR 17 and Riceville 12. Top finishers for the girls included Krista Hovland, who took second in the 400 meter hurdles and tied for second in the high jump. West Fork claimed first place in the girls’ portion of the meet with a score of 129, followed by Charles City with 115, Saint Ansgar 103, Osage 100, Nashua-Plainfield 49, North Iowa 37, Riceville 33 and RRMR 20. “It was great to get a meet in,” said North Iowa Head Coach Jon Potter. “While the conditions were a bit cool and breezy, it was important for us to see where the athletes are currently. On the girls’ side, injuries have really limited what we can do line-up wise. If we can get healthy, it will allow us to be much more competitive as a team. “The boys’ team had some high quality finishes for the first night out,” said Potter. “To win three relays was a nice surprise against solid competition. Overall, it was a typical first meet - lots of positives and some areas where we

know improvement is needed.” Girls Field Events Discus: Cassidy Sachs [77’2”/5th]. High Jump: Krista Hovland [4’10”/T2nd].

Thank You

Thanks to everyone who came to our MS Fundraiser on Sunday, April 6 or gave a donation. A special thanks to the friends and family that helped in any way and to all those who donated to the bake sale. We would also like to thank the Rake Fire Department for letting us use the fire station for the event. It was a HUGE success. Every little bit helps towards finding a cure that affected our husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. We think everyone knows someone who is stricken with this terrible disease and, with the kindness shown that day, we feel a cure is sure to come. It may not be tomorrow, next week or even next year, but the money we have raised will go towards the fight. We couldn’t have done it without you. Special thanks to Pastor Terry Mahnke for all he did. The Skogen Family

Short-staffed girls’ squad takes sixth at Algona The North Iowa Lady Bison traveled to Algona last Friday, Apr. 11, for their second track and field competition of the season at the Lady Bears Invitational. The girls took sixth place out of seven teams, with Algona taking the championship with 188 points. Other scores were Bishop Garrigan 106, GHV 96, West Hancock 81, Forest City 76, North Iowa 38 and Clear Lake 2. The Lady Bison had second place finishes from Madi Blodgett in the 800 meters and Krista Hovland in the 400 meter hurdles. “It was an ideal night weather-wise, and we had a host of excellent performances,” said Lady Bison Head Coach Jon Potter. “A lot of girls stepped out of their comfort zones and ran events that they typically have not tried; and almost without exception, they enjoyed success in doing so. “The biggest challenge facing the girls’ team right now is health,” said Potter. “If we can get everyone healthy, we should be better able to fill a lineup; but in the meantime, we are exploring different events for competitors to see what they can do for later on in the season.” Field Events Long Jump: Tiarra Jensvold [13’2.5”/6th].

The North Iowa Lady Bison edged out Bishop Garrigan in their first meet of the golf season last Tuesday, Apr. 8, winning 232-233 at Spring Valley Golf Course. Head Coach Levi Judge says it was a great start to the season. “Everyone played very well on a really hard course,” said Judge. “I was proud of our two new golfers to the team; Jenna Koppen and Sydney Giesking. Rachel Boekelman started off to a great year as the runner up medalist of the tournament.” Boekelman scored a 46 to take the runner-up spot, while Bishop Garrigan’s Alexa Capesius was medalist with a 3. Other scores for North Iowa were: Carly Main 53, Shelby Berte 63, Sydney Giesking 70, Chelsey Roth 76 and Jenna Koppen 104. The boys’ team, meanwhile came in third place at Spring Valley in a triangular with Estherville Lincoln Central and Bishop Garrigan. ELC won the

meet with a score of 178, followed by Bishop Garrigan 182 and North Iowa 215. Meet medalist was Jess Marlow of ELC with a 43, while Bishop Garrigan’s Corey Reeves also scored 43 for the runner-up spot. North Iowa scores included: Taylor Ostermann 50, Josh Hofbauer 51, Colton Skarpohl-Ost 55, Caleb Ricke 59, Dylan Voortmann 64 and Garrett Walsh 67. JV scores were Cam Hepperly 49 and Austin Paden 63. Coach Judge says it was good to get a meet in. “Our scores were higher than expected, but it was nice to get on to a course and ‘shake the rust off’,” said Judge. “This year, we added three new golfers to the team who haven’t played on a team before; Dylan Voortmann, Garrett Walsh, and Austin Paden. Each of them will contribute nicely to the team. For this being the second time all year, we did perform well.”
