Emergency crews to conduct live demonstration Thursday Fire and ambulance crews from Buffalo Center and Rake will hold a live demonstration of a car crash scene this Thursday, Apr. 24 at Bison Field.

it doesn’t take much to change your life,” said Blodgett. The scene will include two cars smashed together, with high school students playing the parts of victims in the cars. A 911 call will be placed at about 2:30 p.m., and emergency crews will respond and treat the scene like a real car crash. They will use the Jaws of Life to extract victims from the cars, EMS personnel will provide treatment, and one victim will be air lifted out by Mercy Air Life.

The demonstration is made possible by a grant from the Winnebago Community Foundation, and emergency crews had training last week with staff from Professional Rescue Innovations from Des Moines. Departments involved with the demonstration include the Buffalo Center Fire Dept., Buffalo Center Ambulance, Rake Fire Dept., Rake First Responders, Buffalo Center Police Dept., Winnebago County Sheriff’s Dept. and Mercy Air Life.

It was a mad dash to find the Easter eggs last Saturday, Apr. 19, during the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Timely Mission Nursing Home. Residents and staff at the nursing home prepared more than 1,000 plastic Easter eggs for the event, which is always a big draw for the kids.

Fifth grade returns to middle school in grade realignment The fifth grade class will once extended 90 minute class period to again be a part of North Iowa Middle School next school year, in a grade realignment approved at the Monday, Apr. 14 meeting of the North Iowa School Board. Beginning in the fall, the middle school will consist of grades 5-8, while the elementary will include K-Prep through 4th grades. Fifth grade was previously a part of North Iowa Middle School, when grades 5-8 were taught at the school building in Thompson. That changed during a grade realignment in 2008, when the fifth graders were brought over to Buffalo Center and incorporated into the elementary school, in an effort to reduce costs for the school district. The Thompson building was closed in 2010, and the middle school grades were brought to Buffalo Center. Now that all North Iowa students are taught in a single K-12 facility, North Iowa Supt. Cory Myer says it makes sense to return the middle school to the grades 5-8 format. The change will provide more opportunities for middle school students. One major focus will be the creation of a literacy block, where all middle school students will have an

focus on reading and language arts. Students currently have separate classes for reading and language arts, and Myer says the change will give teachers more time and flexibility to work with the kids. The change will also lead to the creation of “pods”, in which fifth and sixth graders will make up one pod to share activities, and seventh and eighth graders will have activities together as another pod. Grades 7-8 already share activities such as athletics and dances, while Myer says the sixth grade is kind of on its own. Activities the 5th-6th graders may share include things like field trips, activity times and clubs. The school does not plan to sponsor athletics for grades 5-6, but there are opportunities for this grade level outside of school. “A lot of schools do the pods, with 5th-6th together and 7th-8th together,” said Myer. “Maturity wise, they’re a lot more alike.” He says he views grades 5-6 as more of an intermediate school, while grades 7-8 make up junior high. Myer says there is also a financial benefit to the change, as the school will be better able to utilize the staff it has without the need to hire an additional teacher next year. The switch will mean some differences for the kids entering fifth grade this fall, as they will rotate between classrooms throughout the day for instruction by different teachers. Myer says the 5th-8th grade middle school was very effective in Thompson, and the school still has a number of teachers who taught in that format. “For the middle school teachers that have been here for a while, it’s nothing different,” said Myer.

About 500 people came out to enjoy breakfast during the annual Pancake Day, organized by North Iowa Betterment. The Buffalo Center Fire Dept. hosted the event at the fire station, with proceeds from the meal going toward fireworks for the annual 4th of July celebration in Buffalo Center.

Members of the Bison FFA Chapter helped serve at NIB’s Pancake Day fundraiser last Saturday, which pays for fireworks for Buffalo Center’s 4th of July celebration.

10 Years Ago Tribune Files of Wednesday, April 22, 2004 Volunteers have been busy moving shelving, books and other equipment from the old library on 1st Street NW to the new quarters at 221 North Main. Several areas of renovation are in process of completion and when everything is done, Buffalo Center should well be proud of its new, larger and more spacious library.

It has become tradition for the Senate pages to begin stacking the boxes in the closing days of the legislative session. The second year of any General Assembly is scheduled to last 100 days, and the 100th day of the 2014 session is April 22. The question is— “Will adjournment be on April 22 or in the following days?” There was a sense on Wednesday that the end is near. The House and Senate passed bills back and forth in an effort to move the process along in a timely manner. A majority of these bills were budget bills. With a Democrat majority in the Senate and a Republican majority in the House, the bulk of the budget bills are likely to be assigned to a conference committee. On Wednesday, leadership from each caucus began assigning those conferees. When their work is done, we will truly be near to adjourning for the year. By the close of the week, the Senate sent bills to the House pertaining to job training, elder abuse, and funding for Agriculture and the Justice Department. Unfortunately, we may not even meet most of next week because not all Senate Democrats may be able to attend. If they don’t have 26 votes on

hand, nothing happens. George Nicholas was a great hero of the Revolutionary War. During the early stages of the Virginia convention, he delivered a speech that addressed the question of whether the Constitution would endanger our liberties. He commented, “An enlightened people will never suffer what was established for their security to be perverted to an act of tyranny.” Has George Nicholas’s optimistic statement been fulfilled? In all honesty, we must conclude it has not. Who is to blame? By Nicholas’s logic, we must conclude that we, the citizens, are to blame. We have not been an enlightened people. I encourage all Iowans to learn all they can about our political system. Talk to your legislators, attend forums, and this fall get out and vote! Having said all that, I feel obligated to do all I can to help educate the people of Senate District 4. Please contact me with your questions. I can be contacted at dennis.guth@legis.iowa.gov or by calling 641-430-0424. Consider attending the U.S. Senate Family Forum at 6:30 on April 25 at Faith Baptist College in Ankeny. The purpose of this forum is to find out not only what the candidates believe, but why they believe what they do. For more information, visit thefamilyleader.com

It doesn’t look like we will finish until you read this in the newspaper. We are currently working on three budget bills with more than a half dozen to go. By the time we get through these bills, plus a few policy bills and the conference committee on the differences between the House and Senate, it will probably go until the end of the week of April 20. We are currently working on SF2349. The legislation is called RIIF, Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund. The money allocated in this budget is used for a host of infrastructure updates. Some of those infrastructure updates are; Iowa great places, nursing home facility improvements, lake restoration and water quality, tuition replacement, Iowa State University Biosciences Building, railroad revolving loans and grants, and county fair infrastructure improvements. The Iowa Great Places budget will approve grants that include infrastructure projects such as park creation and development, acquisition and renovation of historical buildings, renovation and expansion of museums, and recreational trails design and construction. The Nursing Home Financial Assistance Program in Iowa Code chapter 249K was established in the 2008 Infrastructure Appropriations Act to support the appropriate number of nursing facility beds for the State’s citizens and to financially assist nursing facilities in remaining compliant with applicable health and safety regulations. Funds for the Lake Restoration and Water Quality budget are used for projects identified in the Lake Restoration Annual Report and Plan focusing on the first 35 projects that make up the priority of the list of lake candidates. Tuition Replacement appropriation replaces the student tuition and fees that would be required to pay the debt service on academic revenue bonds authorized in prior fiscal years. The first academic revenue bonds were issued in 1970 and provided the primary sources of funds for construction of academic facilities at the universities for several decades. The appropriation is not mandatory by statute, the Board or Regents has previously indicated that without a tuition replacement appropriation, an aggregate increase of five percent in tuition across the universities would be required to pay the debt service. The General Assembly provides the appropriation to keep tuition costs lower for students. Iowa State University Biosciences Building budget is for the construction of the new biosciences building at Iowa State University of Science and Technology. A new biosciences building is

part of Iowa State University’s comprehensive plan to address space needs for the biosciences programs. Faculty from disciplines such as biology, agriculture, engineering, computer sciences, chemistry, and social sciences have collaborated in the area of biosciences. Railroad revolving loans and grants funds are used to provide grants and loans for construction and improvements to railroad facilities, such as railroad main lines, branch lines, switching yards, siding, rail connections, intermodal yards, and highway grade separations. Finally, county fair infrastructure improvement funds are used for vertical infrastructure improvements at the 105 county fairs in the Association. County fairs will receive $10,095 each. Examples of recent projects with the funding include renovations to sheep barns, grandstand roofs, offices, adding ADA compliant restrooms and showers, new hoop buildings, new cattle barns, repairs due to storm damages, new community centers and exhibit buildings, renovations to main auditoriums and remodeling of horse barns. Once we get through this appropriations bill, we can work on the education budget. This year, the education budget will include; funds for community colleges, regent’s universities, for-profit colleges, and the Iowa tuition grant. Also included in this bill are funds for the department of the blind, Iowa brail and sight saving school, and a host of other functions. The other budget bill on my desk is the administration and regulation budget. I am the vice-chair of that committee. This budget applies to 13 different agencies that administer state departments and agencies. You have probably heard and read a lot about DAS. This is one of the agencies under fire right now by the senate oversight committee. 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.

CHURCH

Guest night at First Reformed

Services and Announcements of activities in our area

Churches

First Reformed Church in Buffalo Center will feature Pastor April Fiet during a guest night on Wednesday, May 7, beginning at 7 p.m. in the church sanctuary. April will speak about how each person is made by God to be special and beautiful – even if we don’t always realize it. A light lunch will be served in the fellowship hall. April Fiet has co-pastored in Dumont with her husband, Jeff, for more than six years. They are raising two schoolage children, which keeps life fresh, fun, and a bit chaotic at times. April enjoys running (at a snail’s pace), baking bread, reading (theology and children’s books), crocheting, and taking pictures of nearly everything. As a classically trained musician, a self-taught crocheter, and the mother of two creative kids, April has spent a lot of time reflecting on God as the Creator

Wildflower Walk this May at Pilot Knob

The Winnebago County Conservation Board will sponsor an Evening Wildflower Walk at Pilot Knob State Park this spring to help people enjoy the outdoors. The event will take place Monday, May 12, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The leisurely walk will start at the main shelter house and will last about 45-60 minutes. During the walk, Winnebago County Naturalist Lisa Ralls will identify the spring wildflowers blooming along the trail and will tell interesting facts about each one. Since spring is arriving a little late this year, it’s difficult to predict which flowers will be blooming on May 12, but some possible candidates are trilliums, trout lilies, hepaticas and bloodroots, among others. The walk will be free and open to the public, and there is no need to register ahead of time. In case of inclement weather, the walk will have to be postponed or canceled, and that announcement will run on KIOW Radio (FM 107.3), as well as on the WCCB web site (www.winnebagoccb.com) and on the WCCB Facebook page and WCCB Twitter feed. For questions about the Evening

Wildflower Walk, contact Lisa Ralls at 641-565-3390 or at lralls@winnebagoccb.com

In February 2011, Jeff and Megan Vaske were married. Megan is the daughter of Chuck and Marilyn Vaske of Bancroft, who own Vaske Sales & Service just outside Bancroft. Megan graduated from UNI in 2009 with a degree in marketing. The couple has lived in Denver, IA, since 2010, and Megan sold insurance for State Farm for a while. She has been working in marketing for a marketing and advertising agency in Cedar Falls for 4½ years. Their son, Owyn, was born in 2012, and their second child is due this September. The family is in the process of mov-

ing back to Buffalo Center, where Jeff will work as a territory manager for Ernie Williams. They are excited about returning to the area where they will be closer to family and friends and enjoy the closeness of small towns. Jeff adds that they are “looking forward to our children growing up with both families close and learning how to work hard and respect others.” Thinking back to his younger days, Jeff mostly remembers riding bikes around town, feeling safe because “you know who everybody is and they all know who you are too, so everybody in town is looking out for you, trying to keep you out of trouble!” Attending the North Iowa school system made him feel like the teachers and staff truly cared about the students, taking pride in the success of their students and making sure students didn’t simply get lost in the crowd. Jeff can be reached at ostermannjeffm@gmail.com. Welcome back, Jeff and Megan!

WCTA members to receive dividends for patronage The Winnebago Cooperative Telecom Association (WCTA) Board of Directors recently voted to issue dividends to current and past members, resulting in an estimated payout totaling just over $1 million. The decision was based on one of the founding principles of co-ops – return profits back to the members. Dividends are calculated using a percentage of a customer’s patronage during a given year. This payment represents 9.6% of the allocated dividends for members who had service with WCTA in the years 1997 through 2000. “We are pleased to be able to make this payment,” said WCTA General

Manager Mark Thoma. “Members can be proud of the cooperative’s operation which continues to provide low cost services to its customers.” In support of WCTA’s mission to share its success with members, WCTA will issue approximately 8,400 dividend checks to past and current members. Checks will be mailed this summer. Winnebago Cooperative Telecom Association is a member-owned cooperative providing a full range of quality, reliable telecommunication services and products to communities in north central Iowa and south central Minnesota.

Alliant reaches agreement to extend base rate freeze Customers of Alliant Energy’s Iowa electric utility will see no increase in their base electric rates through 2016. Credits will also be included in customer bills based on the three-year agreement filed recently with the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB). The agreement is a collective effort by Alliant Energy, the Office of Consumer Advocate, Iowa Consumer Coalition, and the Large Energy Group. It will become effective when approved by the IUB. The customer credits will be $70 million in 2014, $25 million in 2015 and $10 million in 2016. These credits will appear in the energy cost portion of customers’ bills. The agreement will extend the electric base rate freeze that has been in effect since 2011. Between 2011 and 2014, Alliant Energy will have invested about $750 million in Iowa’s electric system to improve electric reliability and the emissions profile of its generating stations. This agreement offsets the cost of these investments with savings from the new nuclear purchased power agreement that began in February 2014. “The base rate freeze and bill credits will continue to support the competitiveness of our Iowa customers and communities,” said Tom Aller, President of Alliant Energy’s Iowa utility. “We are pleased that through the collective efforts of our stakeholders, we can propose the unanimous agreement to the IUB, and appreciate their consideration of this proposal.” Alliant Energy continues to invest in the Iowa electric system to: • Improve the environmental profile of its electric generation by continuing support of renewable energy and reducing emissions at existing generation stations. • Construct the natural gas fired Marshalltown Generating Station, which will add additional flexible and reliable electric generation to Alliant’s portfolio when completed in 2017. • Improve customer reliability by investing in the electric distribution

system, which has helped significantly reduce outage length and duration since 2010.

Sign-up begins for USDA disaster assistance programs Eligible farmers and ranchers can now sign up for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) disaster assistance programs restored by passage of the 2014 Farm Bill. “We implemented these programs in record time and kept our commitment to begin sign-up today,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “To ensure enrollment goes as smoothly as possible, dedicated staff in over 2,000 Farm Service Agency offices across the country are doing everything necessary to help producers that have suffered through two and a half difficult years with no assistance because these programs were awaiting Congressional action.” Depending on the size and type of farm or ranch operation, eligible producers can enroll in one of four programs administered by the Farm Service Agency. The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) and the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) will provide payments to eligible producers for livestock deaths and grazing losses that have occurred since the expiration of the livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, including calendar years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish that have suffered losses because of disease, severe weather, blizzards and wildfires.

Enrollment has also begun for the Tree Assistance Program (TAP), which provides financial assistance to qualifying orchardists and nursery tree growers to replant or rehabilitate trees, bushes and vines damaged by natural disasters. Producers signing up for these programs are encouraged to contact their local FSA office for information on the types of records needed and to schedule an appointment. Taking these steps in advance will help producers ensure their application moves through the process as quickly as possible. Supporting documents may include livestock birth records, purchase and transportation receipts, photos and ownership records showing the number and type of livestock lost, documents listing the gallons of water transported to livestock during drought, and more. Crop records may include purchase receipts for eligible trees, bushes, or vines, seed and fertilizer purchases, planting and production records, and documentation of labor and equipment used to plant or remove eligible trees, bushes, or vines. Producers have three to nine months to apply depending on the program and year of the loss. Details are available from any local FSA office. For more information, producers may review the 2014 Farm Bill Fact Sheet, and the LIP, LFP, ELAP and TAP fact sheets online, or visit any local FSA office or USDA Service Center.

The speech students at North Iowa High School gave the local community a chance to see what they’ve been up to all season during a Speech Extravaganza at the school on Thursday, Apr. 10. Leading off the evening of performances was the readers theatre group with a telling of the Snow White tale which doesn’t go quite as planned, titled “Snow… Sort Of… White”. Megan Moklestad, center right, portrayed the wicked stepmother, who offers a poisoned apple to Snow White, played by Shelby Berte.
