Drug Arrests Discussed at Keota City Council Meeting By Tomisha Sprouse
The Keota City Council met on Monday, April 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Keota City Hall. Andy Conrad was at the meeting to discuss the 2014 Keota Fun Days. He requested that a portion of Broadway Ave between Ellis Street and Fulton Street be closed off to make it safer for families to attend the events of Fun Days. This year a majority of the events will be held ‘uptown’. The portion of street will be closed on Friday, June 13 from 4:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. and on Saturday, June 14 from after the parade until 4:00 p.m. Also a portion of Fulton Street will be blocked off for the pedal pull which has been moved to Friday this year. The City Council then made a decision to ‘cut off’ music from the street dance on Friday night at 12:30 a.m. and beverage sales at 1:00 a.m. during Fun Days. This is due to numerous noise complaints
from previous years. Kevin Slaughbaugh told the Council that he will be working on the pool in the next couple of weeks. He will be patching and painting the whole pool this year. Doug Conrad spoke to the council about the drug arrests that happened on Wednesday, April 16 at the corner of Keokuk Avenue and Davis Street. Crystall Tipton and Niles Funk were arrested for conspiracy to manufacture more than 5 grams of meth. Both are being held in jail at $100,000 bail. Living in the home were four children ages 6, 7, 13, and 14. DHS has since removed the children from the home. Officer Conrad stated that he will be looking into whether or not the property needs to be tested and cleaned or if it will uninhabitable. The next Keota City Council Meeting will take place on Monday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Motorcycle Awareness Month
Gov. Terry Branstad has proclaimed the month of May as Motorcycle Awareness Month. He states that all motorcycle organizations, clubs, dealerships, groups and highway safety officials should join with the Iowa Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau and Abate of Iowa, INC. in actively promoting safe operations, increased rider training, improved licensing efforts, and motorist awareness. Also during May and all months, all highway users should unite in safe sharing of roadways. Motorcycle Awareness Month provides citizens of Iowa the opportunity to commit themselves to being more alert and aware of other motor vehicle drivers and especially those operating motorcycles.
Greiner Buildings Wins NFBA Building Of The Year
Greiner Buildings has won two Building Of The Year Awards from the National Frame Builders Association. This is a competition that pits postframe builders against each other from across America. Greiner Buildings has won first place in the Hobby Shop division with Andy Duggan’s 72’ x 104’ x 18’ lined and insulated building. Greiner Buildings has also won third place in the Commercial division with Kelly Heating & Air’s 45’ x 152’ x 19.5’ two story lined and insulated building. Both buildings are prime examples of the benefits postframe construction can offer. Allowing customers to build a larger building with every bit of utility compared to other types of construction.
You may recall several years ago Peregrine Falcons were reintroduced here in Iowa. A pair nested atop one of the buildings in Downtown Des Moines, and everyone was so pleased and excited when they nested and hatched their first brood. Years later it is not uncommon to see these birds soaring through the air, dive-bombing and attacking other birds. Many mornings, as I approach the entrance to the Capitol building, there is evidence of their success. There are “Bird Parts” along the walkway into the employee entrance. It is not at all uncommon to see bird wings along the walkway; evidence that these birds of prey have repopulated successfully. This always reminds me of the phrase: “Be careful what you wish for... You just might get it.” As the Joint Senate/House Government Oversight hearings continue, we are hearing testimony from an assortment of Executive Office employees. The original intent of these hearings was to explore the claims that cash settlements were offered by the Executive Branch to terminated or laid off employees in exchange for confidentiality. Those from the Executive Branch who have been called to testify have repeatedly stated there was NOT a financial reward offered to those employees who were let go in exchange for their silence. Yet the hearings continue, and we have moved on to explore a “Do Not Hire” list, that Executive Offices claim did not exist until the Associated Press (AP) put in a Freedom of Information (FIO) request that was worded in such a way that the information was released. What we have learned as a result of the FIO request is that no “list” existed until the AP put in the request. Prior to that time, there was just a numerical code on individual files scattered within a data base of hundreds of thousands former state employees. In the event that these individuals reapplied for state employment the code would alert the individuals doing the hiring that the former employees should not be rehired. Once the FIO request came in, the data base was searched for names with the special coding and the list was created. Yet we continue

to hear, from people who know better, about “the List.” I have been asking the same question for over a week: “What did these people do to get this special encoding on the Personnel File?” Each time I asked the question, I got the same answer: “Due to Confidentiality issues, we cannot release that information.” On Thursday of this week, when I asked Michelle Minnehan, Human Resources Enterprise Chief Operating Officer of the Dept. of Administrative Services (DAS), I was taken back with her answer. Of course the first thing she did was quote the Code of Iowa to me, which lists several general things without being specific. When I rephrased the question and asked her to be specific, her response blew my socks off! Following are a list of reasons which resulted in termination of State Employees who were then had their Personnel Files encoded to alert future State Management types that this individual is not suitable for re-hire: 1) Failure to perform CPR on someone in need 2) Abuse of Sick Leave 3) Falsification of Records 4) Lying in an Investigation 5) Urinating on an Inmate’s Food 6) Threats of Violence involving a firearm 7) “Inappropriate Observance of Boundaries” with Inmates, including but not limited to sexual relationships 8) Theft 9) Sexual Harassment 10) Possession and/or transmission of contraband 11) Possessing or accessing of pornography at the workplace. Ms. Minnehan indicated this was not a complete list. We have a custom, here in the Senate, of offering “Points of Personal Privilege” each morning after the Prayer and the Pledge. Any elected Senator can address the Senate on any topic desired. Each day, the same points and allegations are made. Each day there is a mention of “Hush Money,” even though each Executive Branch employee who has been posed the question has denied that additional money was offered in exchange for silence. Some of these Senators either were not listening to the testimony or they are simply ignoring what they heard. There has been NO denial that confidentiality was request-
ed. Nor has anyone implied that it is illegal. One individual offering testimony explained that it is not uncommon to seek confidentiality when several employees exit the workforce simultaneously in order to prevent them from comparing notes regarding their severance packages. When the issue was first raised, I had strong opposition to these Confidentiality Clauses, simply because I subscribe to the Transparent Government Theory. But after hearing the testimony from the Executive Branch, I more or less re-evaluated my opinion. I can see a real need to keep these agreements off the front page of the newspapers and barred from discussions at the workplace break room. Nonetheless, Governor Branstad has issued an Executive Order banning Confidentiality Clauses in the interest of Transparent Government. So, even though it may end up costing the state coffers more money, all employees exiting state employment are now free to discuss their severance packages with the world if they wish to do so. This is where “Be Careful What you Wish For, it Just Might Happen” comes into play. House Republicans have passed a bill, HF 2462, which codifies the Governor’s Executive Order and takes other steps to shed sunshine on the entire process. The bill is awaiting debate in the Senate. The bill has been eligible for debate in the Senate for about 10 days, but there is no indication they intend to bring it to the floor for discussion. On Wednesday of this week, when pressed by Rep. Clel Baudler, Oversight Committee Co-Chair Janet Peterson indicated the Senate Democrats are having their own bill drafted to address this matter. No explanation was given as to why they don’t just amend the bill that is laying there awaiting discussion. The second year of each Legislative Session is scheduled to run for 100 days. Actually, what the Code of Iowa says is that Legislators will be paid per diem for 100 days, and usually once Legislators begin paying their own room and board, the Session winds down quickly. Day 100 of this Legislative Session is April 22. The Oversight work is going to keep us here well beyond the 100 days. And when it is all said and done, and we turn out the lights, the Capitol grounds may very well look like the Peregrine Falcons have had their way with Legislators.

Keota Jr./Sr. High School Student Newspaper
SAM HOPES TO SETTLE DOWN WHERE HE BEGAN By: Desi Hesseltine On November 16, 1995, Samuel Albert Ollinger, otherwise known as “Peabody,” was born to proud parents John and Mary Ollinger. He has one sister, Olivia. Sam said his favorite family activity is camping at the Iowa State Fair, which they do every year. Overall, Sam admires the “funniness” of his family. Also, he likes how they are always up for a good time. Sam has been involved in many different things during his stay at Keota High School. Those include golf, baseball, track, football, FFA, and basketball manager. Overall, Sam’s favorites are basketball manager and golf. The classes Sam has enjoyed most at KHS are Speech and Public Communications with Bill Hultman because, “ he taught me a lot about life.”
76 Progressives visit Maplewood By Desi Hesseltine On April 13, 2014, the 76 Progressives 4-H Club took a trip to Maplewood Manor in Keota to celebrate Easter. While there, the residents had many opportunities to interact with the members. Ring toss, Bingo, and picture drawing were all part of the festivities that took place. Overall, it was a good opportunity for the residents to interact with the 4-H members.
Samuel said the most memorable moment of his childhood was getting his first dirt bike and going riding on it. In Jr. High, Sam still remembers when he went undefeated in 8th grade football under Coach Bundy’s guide. Moving up on the ladder, Sam’s favorite high school memory was managing the boy’s basketball team and going all the way to Wells Fargo for the State Basketball Tournament. In his spare time, Peabody enjoys “hanging with friends and stirrin’ up some trouble having a good time.” After high school, Sam plans to attend Kirkwood Community
College to be a CNC Technician. In ten years, he hopes to be back in Keota and starting a family. The most important qualities he possesses to get him there are that he has a ton of hard work and determination in him. Three things Sam wants to accomplish in his lifetime are to get through college, get a salary paid job, and have fun while doing it. After he leaves KHS, he will certainly miss “always being with his buds.” Sam’s advice to future KHS seniors is, “Senior year flies by, so drive fast, take chances, and have fun.”

FARM SAFETY DAY AT KHS
ADVANCED COMP TAKES A TRIP
World Food Prize at ISU
Pictured are Brittany Baumert, Katrina Weber, and Maggie Baker at the World Food Conference on Mon., April 14.
By Maggie Baker On April 14, Ms. Lenius’ Advanced Comp students, Brittany Baumert, Katrina Weber, and Maggie Baker, attended the World Food Prize Iowa Youth Institute. This took place in Ames at the Iowa State University campus. This year’s conference honored the 100th Year Anniversary of Norman Borlaug’s birth. The conference required a paper describing and solving a major problem in a Third World country, which the students spent time working on in class. The day was spent discussing these problems and solutions with many students from around the state. In all, it was a great day.
KCRG MAKES A VISIT By Emily Baetsle On Tues., April 15, 2014 KCRG’s Kaj O’Mara came to Keota and talked to the elementary kids about weather and safety tips. He showed them different weather clips and told them how to stay safe in severe weather. At the end, he asked the kids if any of them had questions and many raised their hands to ask really good questions. After the assembly, the elementary Student Council took him on a tour and he was really impressed with the school’s tunnel. The event was also featured on the 6:00 p.m. news that evening.

Lady Eagles and Trojans Sprint at Pekin
4-17 Pantherette Relays @ Pekin (girls) By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor With last week’s coed meet at WACO cancelled, only the Keota girls’ track and field team competed last week. The Eagles went to Pekin for its Pantherette Relays on Thursday and ran against six other squads, including Tri-County, and finished fourth out of seven teams. Both the Trojans and Eagles ran well in the nearly pristine conditions and had some of their best results in the individual sprints. Tri-County’s Sara Gragg earned a bronze medal in the 100-meter dash by clocking in at a time of 14.08 seconds, her fastest time of the season. Also running her best time of the year was Keota’s Brooke Sieren, who ran a time of 14.10 and placed fourth. Sieren also notched fifth place in the 200meter dash with a time of 30.50 seconds. Running easily its fastest time of the spring, TriCounty’s sprint medley crew of Emma Bair, Sara Gragg, Kristin Krumm and Natalie Steinke, clocked in at 2:14.97 and finished in third. Also placing third was TC’s distance medley relay, which finished in a time of 5:42.73. Keota notched two place winners in the 100-meter hurdles with Kelsi Sieren and Maggie Baker respectively placing fifth and sixth. Sieren crossed the finish line in a time of 19.29 seconds, while Baker finished at 19.32. Sieren also had a nice night in the 400-meter hurdles with
her fastest time of the spring. The Sieren clocked in at 1:17.20 seconds and placed second. In the long jump Sieren finished fourth with a top distance of 13’6.5’’. The Eagles were scheduled to host the coed Keota Relays on Monday, April 21. The Keota boys then ran at BGM on Tuesday, April 22, while the girls ran in Eddyville the same night.

Cold & Rain Doesn’t Halter Panthers 4-15 Mustang Relays @ Bloomfield (coed) 4-17 Pantherette Relays @ Pekin (girls) 4-17 Denny White Relays @ Mt. Pleasant (boys)
By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor Wet weather and chilly temperatures early last week caused a number of track and field meets in the area to get cancelled, but not the ones that the Panthers were competing at. Conditions were subpar, to say the least, last Tuesday in Bloomfield for Davis County’s Mustang Relays, yet both the Pekin boys’ and girls’ squads tore up the competition. The Pekin girls took first place in the team standings by scoring 208 points. First-place individual finishes for the Panthers included Taylor Lock in the 3,000 (11:57), Shae Dahlstrom in the 1,500 (5:39) and Gwynne Wright in the 800 (2:23). Pekin also brought home a number of wins in sprint events including Mallory Reed in the 100-meter hurdles (16.66 seconds) and Kaylee Linder in the 200-meter dash (28.10 seconds). The Pekin boys faced some excellent competition at Bloomfield and finished third as a team with 134 points. Full results were unavailable at press time. Two days later Davis Eidahl’s team hit the road again, this time to Mount Pleasant for the Denny White Relays; a 20-team field split into two classes. The Panthers got right to work in the field events to get early momentum and take the team title in their class with 152.5 points. Drake Relays qualifier Eric Adam won the shot put with a throw of 47’9’’. Also winning on Thursday was fellow senior Jared Bond in the discus. Bond took the individual title with a distance of 147’2’’, while Adam placed third with a throw of 127’8’’. In the long jump Colton Lanman took silver for the Panthers with a mark of 5’10’’, while Zack Conger tied for third with a height of 5’8’’. Brothers Chase and Tyler Copeland finished first and second respectively in the 100-meter dash. Chase, a sophomore, won with a time of 11.88 seconds; Tyler, a freshman, placed second in 12.03 seconds. Austin Fariss earned gold in the 1,600 with a time of 4:54, while Ryan Millikin took bronze with a time of 4:59. Cole Reighard also earned a bronze medal, finishing third in the open 800 with a time of 2:17. Pekin’s Malcolm Myers dominated the 3,200, winning by nearly ten seconds with a time of 10:46. As expected, it was another impressive performance from Pekin’s strong contingent of relay crews. The sprinting group of

By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor Bull riders, especially ones in the highest level of their field, the PBR, carry a far different mind-set to work every day from the general population. “You have to develop a warrior’s mentality, otherwise you have a higher chance of getting hurt,” said 20-year old Professional Bull Rider Brady Sims. “The more you think about [the dangers of riding], the more likely you are to get hurt. Over the years you just get immune to thoughts like that.” Sims, who is in his first full season with the PBR, grew up in a small town in Northwest Missouri called Holt. Growing up, Sims got his feet wet riding sheep as a youngster and has been riding ever since. After competing in just one major event through his first two years on the circuit, Sims has broken through in his third go-around and has earn himself a spot as a ‘regular’ at bull riding’s highest level. Through eight events this season, Sims sits in 23rd place in the Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) and has earned over $28,000 in that short period. Sims has succeeded in making a name for himself at a remarkably young age and up to this point he’s done it while escaping serious injury. Although his young career has yet to be marred by a significant injury, Sims still has experienced his share of scary moments, with the scariest of which recently occurring in Fresno to fellow rider, Ty Pozzobon. “I’ve been knocked out and stomped on plenty of times, but the most scared I’ve been happened when Ty got smashed in Fresno,” Simms said. “The way he landed, we thought he was dead. Usually guys will move around a little bit after they go down hard, but Ty laid there motionless. He ended up walking off with just a concussion, but it was a wake-up call to all of us.” Avoiding serious in the PBR at some point or another is next to impossible for these riders. To give himself the best chance of not only staying atop the strongest, most explosive bulls in the world for eight seconds, but to do it mitigate the risk of injury while doing it, Brady trains hard four days a week. “Everybody’s different,” Sims said about training in the PBR. “Some guys don’t work out; they just go out there and ride. I have a pretty specific workout regimen, though. I usually workout Monday through Thursday and practice on my stationary barrel every night.” All the training in the world can’t prepare a rider for the mental grind of being away from his family, though. With his immediate family in Texas, Sims is forced to sacrifice time away from his loved one in exchange for the pursuit of a prominent riding career. “Being on the road so much definitely wears on you,” said Sims. If you’re not physically and mentally fit, it will break you down. It’s tough on me and my family being away so much. It’s hard to make time for them. This kind of life isn’t for everyone.” Sims knew he wanted to be a rider from a very young age. Now that he’s made it in the PBR, the struggle and dedication to make it to this point sometimes gets lost. Both the parents of young riders and the riders themselves are required to have great toughness and a strong commitment to the cause, Sims says. “Parents just have to see if their kids really want it,” said Sims about the decision to invest in a riding career. “You have to be dedicated and tough; there’s no sugar coating it. It takes a strong mindset to get into something like this.” For Sims, all that toughness and dedication to his passion has been worth it. At the age of 20, Sims has already established a name for himself in the Professional Bull Riding circles and is reaping the benefits that years of hard work has produced. “The PBR has the best bulls, best riders, best entertainment; it’s just on another level from everything else. I’ve ridden in countries around the world in each one of the lower 48 states. Bull riding has taken me great places.” The PBR Built Ford Tough Series competes in Des Moines on April 26 and 27.
