HOME use the money for other county-wide conservation projects. He explained the house needs too much work, and even it were to get Àxed, it seems there·s very little the conservation department could do with it. “When the local people found out we had half interest in the property, people just wanted to come out and go through it because there had been

this sort of urban legend about it,” he said. “The concern that we had was just how much money it would take to make this accessible to the public. Making things that are handicapped accessible, that type of thing.” JoElla Helmers, Robinson III·s sister and owner of the other half of the property, said the original A-frame portion of the home was

built by her grandfather during the Great Depression. The exterior was constructed using recycled bricks from Hampton·s brick-paved streets, and the interior was heated only by the Àreplace. Eventually her father, Bill Robinson II, added on to the home and moved in with his wife and two young children. Helmers recalled fond memories growing up in the house, which had an outdoor pool and a huge yard to explore. “We were the neighborhood pool, and we had a lot of fun during the summer,” she said. “It was a pretty popular place.” Helmers· father enclosed the pool area in the 1980s to create an indoor recreational room. The pool is more than 10 feet deep and has a jacuzzi area, but has fallen into severe disrepair like many other portions of the home. Unbeknownst to Helmers, her brother failed to maintain the property after their parents· deaths. “I don·t think that pool has been Àlled since 1989, which would have been my parents· anniversary,” she

said. Helmers was treated to an unsettling surprise when she came to inspect the home after her brother died last year. The interior was packed with junk, animal feces had accumulated in much of the upstairs, and severe water leak had created a large hole in the ceiling near the Àreplace. “I was shocked,” she said. “I had disbelief.” Helmers, who lives in Greenville, S.C., said she and her brother had an extremely distant relationship over the years. She travels Hampton each Memorial Day to decorate her family·s graves, but never saw her brother or visited the house while he was living there. Like Helmers, Robinson III·s neighbors heard little from the man who lived inside the unique north Hampton home. He suffered from epilepsy and had a driver take him places to eat, but he kept to himself for the most part. “Bill was a real friendly guy until the last few years, but I think things kind of caught up with him,” said

Max Holmes, Robinson III·s neighbor. “It was a really beautiful home at one time when it was kept up, but Bill never did anything.” Betty Aldinger, whose late husband Rex played golf with Robinson III, mirrored Holmes· remarks. She said her interactions with Bill became extremely limited after Rex·s death. “He had his own little routine that he did,” said Aldinger. “I know his animals meant a lot to him. In all of the associations I had with him, he was a very mannerly man.” An estate sale was held following Robinson III·s death which cleared out a majority of the items from the house. Any interested home buyers would need to complete extensive work and cleaning inside, but there·s some potential. Beautiful wood Áoors and woodwork stands out when you tour the many rooms in this complex home. The conservation board had its hands tied when it was debating what to do with its half interest in the property. The conservation de-

partment didn·t know it was named in Robinson III·s will, and it had no money allocated to pay for renovations at the property. Demolition of all buildings would cost upwards of $50,000, but purchasing the other half interest from Helmers and creating a park would be much higher. “We came out and thought, wow, what a place we could turn this into,” said Gooder. “We tried our options, looked at different things, and tried to make the numbers work. It·d be high-risk for us to move into a loan and purchase this completely.” Helmers was unsure what she·d do with her portion of the property. She was saddened to see it in its current condition, and said her fond memories growing up in the home would make it hard to sell or demolish. “I don·t know what I·m going to do with it,” she said. “I have no idea what it·s worth. I guess I·ll just wait and see how this all works out.”

“It just keeps growing,” Morgan said. “More and more people have started to use it.” His claims certainly seem to hold water. Last month, 2,671 total passengers utilized the service. Those numbers include handicapped riders, workers from Access, Inc., the elderly, local students and the general public. Morgan said the buses

Franklin County Transit is owned by the North Iowa Area Council of Governments and is managed by Access, Inc. A bus makes one trip to and from Mason City each day, and the local system also connects to various other routes statewide. For instance, a rider can connect with a bus in Mason City and take a trip to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. If someone wants to head to Marshalltown, they could hop on the Marshalltown Missile in Hampton and head south. “A lot of people will use it for hospital trips and other medical appointments if they don·t have a car or can·t Ànd another ride,” Morgan said. “We will go elsewhere for medical reasons. We will get you to another county.” The buses haul students throughout the county as well. Morgan said Franklin County Transit has two school routes – a CAL and Hampton-Dumont route – that brings students where they need to go each day. He said most are open-enrollment students, but the service is

In-county rides for senior citizens, students and the disabled cost $2, while the general public·s fee is $4. Out-of-county trips to Mason City and elsewhere cost $3 and $5, respectively. Franklin County Transit is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., and can be reached at

(641) 456-5191. It·s based out of the Hampton Senior Center “With a public transit system, you can get anywhere in Franklin County for a very reasonable fee,” said Morgan. “We do transport a lot of disabled and elderly folks, but we would just like people to know we·re here anytime they need us.”

Governor Branstad and Lt. Gov. Reynolds visit north Iowa BY TRAVIS FISCHER Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds spent time in north Iowa last week as part of the governor¡s annual campaign to visit all of the state¡s 99 counties. On Tuesday morning, Branstad and Reynolds drove to Hampton for a tour of the Omnium chemical plant. Plant manager Dale Calendine led the tour, explaining to the governor what they do at Omnium and how they have grown since building their facility in Hampton 20 years ago. Omnium is a division of Land O¡Lakes, Inc., that develops and manufactures crop protection products. Although owned by Land O¡Lakes, the company produces farm products such as water conditioners and herbicides for a wide range of customers, including some of their own competitors. “We have all the big producers coming to us in Iowa,â€? said Calendine. The governor commended the growth that the company has seen in Hampton, particularly a 30 percent increase in their workforce since 2010.

“That coincides with the time that we¡ve been in ofĂ€ce, so we like that,â€? he joked. Currently employing 75 fulltime workers, Omnium is preparing an expansion to their facility that would add another 16-20 jobs this fall. Calendine explained that gas prices and new trucking regulations have made the Midwest a more appealing location for manufacturing compared to the coastal areas. “Now it¡s a big issue to get a truck loaded today and driven to their site,â€? said Calendine. “You try to do that from outside the Corn Belt and it really drives up the cost and the time to deliver to your customers.â€? On the governor¡s end, Branstad explained that upcoming tax reductions would continue to facilitate industrial growth in the state. “Our corporate, commercial, and industrial taxes will come down 5 percent each of the next two years,â€? said Branstad. “So that should make it more attractive as well.â€? During the tour, Calendine showed off Omnium¡s zero discharge facility. He explained that, in the event of a spill, the facility

is designed so that the chemicals will pool within the concrete walls. There is no drain or discharge in the facility beyond the sanitary sewer system. “You¡re really meeting a concern that we have about protecting the environment and making sure that farmers get a product that meets their needs,â€? said Branstad. “I think it¡s a win/win situation all the way around.â€? Following the tour, the Governor answered questions from the group and discussed policy that affects Omnium¡s business. Calendine, who has previous experience in the ethanol industry, also expressed how much the renewable fuels market has changed the industry of agriculture over the years. Branstad agreed, and afĂ€rmed his support for continued ethanol production. “We¡re really Ă€ghting to try to convince the EPA not to reduce renewable fuel standards cause that¡s been a really good policy in terms of helping reduce our dependency on foreign oil and helping us create jobs in the ethanol industry,â€? said Branstad.

Land O¡Lakes board member Scot Janssen raised a concern about a push toward GMO labeling requirements, which would force food producers to identify products made with ingredients that come from genetically engineered crops. “We¡ve gotta Ă€ght and push that back,â€? said Janssen. “We¡re Ă€ghting it tooth and toenail,â€? assured Branstad. “It¡s so goofy. We don¡t want to be like the Europeans or the Californians. The land of fruits and nuts you know. They don¡t get it. They¡re really hurting their own agriculture, we don¡t want them to hurt us.â€? On the subject of foreign affairs, Branstad recalled his close relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, who led a delegation that visited Iowa in 1985. Branstad invited him back to Iowa last year when Jinping became president. “He said when he thinks of America, he thinks of the people he met when he was in Iowa,â€? said Branstad. “He went to DC, Iowa, and California,â€? said Reynolds. “Flyover state no more.â€? Lt. Governor Reynolds com-

mended Omnium on their outreach to younger rural Iowans by providing a place to keep their talent in the state. “I like the fact that it¡s in rural Iowa, to see this kind of growth and

expansion and the wonderful things that are happening at this facility,� said Reynolds. “For Iowa to be successful we need to see growth all over the state, not just in pockets.�

LIBRARY “Anybody that got athlete¡s foot had to work on the dam and pack the clay with their feet,â€? Bell said. “And that would cure it!â€? The story drew laughs from the audience, but was only one of many during Jammerson¡s hour-long program. The event was co-sponsored by the Franklin County Historical Society and Friends of Beeds Lake, and was attended by around 30 people. “Bill had called me last year about doing it, but it just never worked out,â€? said Manning, who¡s own father worked in the CCC. “He called again this year and I said ÂśYep! Let¡s do it!¡ It was just such a great thing we could do with a couple other groups here in town.â€?

break-in at the consession stand also took place. Schaefer said very little money was inside, but he felt cameras could help make the park safer from Ă€ghts or other mishaps. Christiansen made a presentation about the various types of cameras available for surveillance, and suggested the city purchase digital cameras with greater resolution. They cost more, but Christiansen said they¡d be better in the event of a crime. The park¡s large area creates the need for greater camera-zooming capabilities. “We could go through Ă€lm and see that yeah, somebody went on the basketball court and spray painted or see that somebody did other damage, but we couldn¡t be able to tell faces if we zoomed in with analog (low quality). With the IP (high quality), we could,â€? said Christiansen. The council felt purchasing four cameras for Progress Park this year and potentially adding on to their surveillance arsenal in the future would be their best option. “We just can¡t get everything we want for the budget we¡re working with this year,â€? said Boehmler. The council shifted gears and discussed ongoing offstreet parking changes following the camera debate. The council has been attempting to strengthen parking code to crack down on residents that park vehicles on their yards, but has found progress difĂ€cult so far. Schaefer discovered a zoning ordinance that could

stop problematic parkers if the council wanted to enforce it more frequently. Zoning code currently stipulates that residents cannot park a vehicle on their front yard whether they have a surfaced pad or not. Schaefer suggested that his ofĂ€cers could start issuing one warning to violators, then issue a ticket with a Ă€ne. “The way I work, they would get a warning,â€? he said. “If we could look it up and see they¡ve gotten a warning, then OK, this guy is gonna get a summons (ticket).â€? The council felt enforcing the zoning ordinance would be a good start at trimming the parking problems throughout town. Many residents have called ofĂ€cials to complain about neighbors, claiming the vehicles parked in their yards devalue surrounding properties. “People have to become responsible for their own vehicles, and if they¡re going to keep doing it and being a nuisance property, we¡re going to start ticketing people,â€? said Council Member Valerie Haugebak. “And it¡s unfortunate we have to punish everyone for a small few.â€? Because of the high volume of renters in Hampton, the council directed Schaefer to determine whether a Ă€ne would be issued to the property owner or the vehicle owner. They will continue the discussion at future meetings.

Former CAL student gunned down during police standoff

BY NICK PEDLEY A suicidal man was shot and killed last week during an armed standoff with law enforcement ofĂ€cers from multiple regional agencies. Police ofĂ€cers responded to an emergency call of an armed suicidal man at 413 College Ave. in Iowa Falls early last Thursday afternoon. Upon their arrival, ofĂ€cers found Leighton C. Fitz, 25, Iowa Falls, heavily armed and wearing a bullet-proof vest. According to a report from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (IDCI), Fitz allegedly exited the residence and was extremely uncooperative. “Fitz refused to obey commands from ofĂ€cers on scene and reached for a weapon. After refusing to drop the weapon, ofĂ€cers Ă€red rounds, fatally striking Fitz,â€? stated a release from the IDCI. Two ofĂ€cers from the Iowa Falls Police Department and three from the Iowa Department of Public Safety Ă€red their weapons during the standoff. According to the IDCI, all Ă€ve were placed on administrative leave pending the completion of an investigation. “After a search of the residence, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agents found multiple loaded weapons and a gas mask. Agents also discovered threats towards ofĂ€cers on Fitz¡s Facebook page,â€? stated the

release. According to Fitz¡s obituary on Linn¡s Funeral Homes website, he attended CAL Community Schools in Latimer. The Chronicle could Ànd no record of the year of Fitz¡s graduation, and the funeral home had no further information either. He was employed as a security guard for American Security and Investigation at the time of his death. Only a short obituary was posted on the funeral home¡s website. A memorial visitation is scheduled for

April 17 at Linn¡s Iowa Falls Chapel, and the family will have a private inurnment in the Hampton City Cemetery at a later date. No further information about the shooting will be released until the IDCI completes its investigation. Assisting the IDCI is the Iowa State Patrol, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Hardin County Sherrif¡s OffÀce, Iowa Falls Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff¡s OfÀce.

CHRONICLE EDITORIAL

Chronicle Staff

The plight of the procrastinating voter A troubling loophole in absentee voting laws has led to the disqualiÀcation of some ballots in local elections statewide, but it appears a viable solution is nowhere in sight for Iowa·s lawmakers. Last week, the Des Moines Register ran an eye-opening report about a law that potentially disenfranchises unknowing voters that wait until the last minute to mail their absentee ballots. Iowa Code currently stipulates that all votes received in the mail after the polls close must be stamped with a postmark dated the day before Election Day. The U.S. Postal Service doesn·t usually postmark business reply mail, which is exactly what absentee ballots are. This means a perfectly legitimate absentee vote could get tossed out even if the person mailing it met all the deadline requirements – if the ballot is received a day late with no postmark, it·s tough stuff for Mr. Voter. The Register·s article included some cringe-worthy statistics that certainly created a cause for alarm. Though little to no issues occurred during the 2012 presidential election, the same couldn·t be said for local elections last fall. A handful of large counties all reported varying numbers of rejected ballots due to a lack of a postmark following Election Day in 2013: Polk County tossed out 58, Scott County discarded 21, and Johnson County snuffed nine. It might seem like small peanuts for the state·s biggest counties, but a similar scenario in a place like Franklin County could potentially sway a close school board election or city council race. Turnout in those elections is already very low here, and throwing out a ballot because it lacks a postmark only shaves that margin even closer. State lawmakers have suggested many remedies for the postmark problem. The list included creating a hard deadline for absentee ballots that would disqualify all votes received via mail after Election Day; rewriting state code and allowing election ofÀcials to open ballots received after Election Day to see if they were dated before the deadline; and altering the timeframe after Election Day in which votes could be counted, whether they were postmarked or not. Simply forcing the U.S.P.S. to postmark business reply mail like absentee ballots isn·t a possibility. The Postal Service isn·t technically under the government·s control, and it·s certainly not under the Iowa Legislature·s jurisdiction. It appears our lawmakers are powerless to remedy the situation. If the Postal Service isn·t required to postmark absentee ballots, it isn·t going to. The Register noted a previous law was struck down in 2011 that allowed ofÀcials to open votes received after Election Day and check if they were dated and signed before the deadline. Fears over voters falsifying the date and mailing ballots after Election Day led to the repeal, which seems relatively justiÀed. As previously mentioned, implementing it again would require recodiÀcation of the law, which makes its viability somewhat slim. Quite frankly, the situation is excruciatingly frustrating. The Legislature isn·t going to Ànd a solution in 2014 – time is just simply running out. As the campaign intensiÀes and the November election inches closer, it seems there·s really nothing else to do other than warn procrastinating absentee voters about the possibility of discarded votes. Once that ballot comes, citizens would be wise to Àll it out and send it on its way immediately. It·s unfortunate Iowa·s esteemed election laws could be derailed by the lack of a simple postmark, but it·s even more disheartening that a ballot could get tossed unbeknownst to the person who cast it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Resident urges solution to off-street parking debate To the editor: Is it OK to park your vehicles on your property? Yes, as long as they are parked in your garage, driveway or on gravel. Is it OK to park a vehicle along one side of your house and another on the other side of your

house, and then another vehicle in front of your house so close to your front door that all you have to do is get out of your vehicle and walk into your house? No. If you can afford to pay the insurance, then you can afford some cement, gravel and some

wood to build a garage. If not, sell them. What our council needs to do is try to solve the problem instead of just quitting. Terry Fielding Hampton

Helping more Iowa kids bene¿t from preschool I was proud to support an initiative this week to help more Iowa kids get a good start on their education with high-quality preschool. In 2007, Iowa established an excellent statewide voluntary preschool program for four-year-olds, but there just are not enough spots for all the kids who want to attend. Many school districts maintain waiting lists. In addition, 34 school districts during the 2012-13 school year did not even participate in Iowa·s statewide program. SF 2351 will help meet the demand among Iowa families who want to send their 4-year-olds to preschool. The bill will increase enrollment and eliminate waiting lists by providing a $1,200 per-pupil incentive for each student that a school adds to their program over the next three years. The bill will also expand eligible expenses for private preschools and encourage outreach to families who could beneÀt from Iowa·s preschool offerings. Children who attend a good preschool beneÀt from early reading and math education. A 2013 report by Iowa·s Child & Family Policy Center found that kids who attend preschool are more proÀcient readers by third grade than those who do not go to preschool.

Expanding the availability of preschool will be particularly beneÀcial THE to minority students and kids from RAGAN low-income families. Reports show that students from low-income famREPORT ilies who attend preschool are less likely to require intensive intervention after they enter kindergarten. The children were less likely to drop out of school, repeat grades, need special education or get into trouble with the law.

Busy week at the statehouse Another productive week in the House is under our belts. We continue to work hard on behalf of Iowans as we wind down the list of policy bills on our debate calendar and make additional progress on the budget bills. Tuesday, April 22 marks the 100th calendar day of the session. Our goal was to have our work complete by this date, but it appears that is unlikely. It·s unfortunate that political grandstanding in the Senate has become detrimental to getting our job done this session. There is no doubt that when a concern is raised involving state government, we have the responsibility to look into the issue. The Government Oversight Committee is a function of the legislative branch that provides a forum to investigate concerns as they arise. However, this committee is not limited to meeting solely during the legislative session and should not prohibit us from wrapping up our work on behalf of the taxpayers of Iowa. I am hopeful we will be able to move forward in the next couple of weeks and complete our work for the year. SF 2347, the Education Appropriations bill, was one of the budget bills passed in the House this week. This year·s education budget includes funding to further our commitment to the comprehensive, achievement-driven education reform package passed last year. With an additional $50 million for the teacher leadership initiative established in 2013, this bill helps ensure our students will be equipped with the tools they need to compete in today·s global economy and our teachers will be rewarded for their hard work in making this happen. SF 2347 also includes additional funding for our higher education institutions in Iowa- $19.2 million for our three Regent universities and $8 million for Iowa·s community colleges. This funding ensures a tuition freeze for in-state students at Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Northern Iowa for the second consecutive year. While this budget does not address supplemental state aid (previously referred to as allowable growth) for

K-12 schools, some discussion was up on this issue in relation to UNDER THE brought some schools making budget adjustGOLDEN ments for the upcoming school year. DOME, TOO It is important to note that through a unanimous, bipartisan vote last year, the Legislature has already increased K-12 funding by 4% for the 20142015 school year. Schools will be receiving an estimated $170 million additional state dollars next year over the previous year. Despite this, due to declining enrollment and budget reductions in some school districts, school dollars are hard to stretch and it·s easy to blame the Legislature. The truth is, for the past two years, this year, and next year, we will have increased school funding through the supplemental state aid formula by over $440 million. During the 2014-2015 school year, Iowa will spend approximately $10,000 per K-12 student. Since coming into the Majority in 2010, we have committed to funding our K-12 schools through a more responsible approach than the method used up to that point. We will set the supplemental state aid amount at the same time we set the state·s two-year budget- after having a good understanding of our state·s revenue projections and other obligations. Committing taxpayer dollars without knowing how much revenue is available, is irresponsible and puts Iowans at risk for a property tax increase. Setting supplemental state aid at the same time as the two-year budget has proven to be successful as education funding has increased during this time, there have no across-the-board cuts, and we have honored our commitments. Rest assured, Iowans can be conÀdent we are committed to ensuring our students have the resources they need to excel in the classroom and thrive upon graduation. Thank you for your feedback over the past few weeks. I·ve appreciated hearing from you and hope you will continue to contact me with your thoughts and questions as we move toward adjournment. Feel free to reach me anytime at linda.upmeyer@legis.iowa.gov or 515-281-4618.

What if I told you that Chris Columbus, the director that gave us Àlms like “Adventures in Babysitting,” the only two “Home Alone” movies worth acknowledging, and the Àrst two “Harry Potter” Àlms, wanted to direct a sequel to one of his other award winning movies. And that sequel would be scripted by David Berenbaum, the man who penned “Elf.” Now what if I told you that the guy who produced “Jingle All The Way” and both of those terrible “Fantastic Four” movies wanted to create a sequel to “Mrs. DoubtÀre” with the man who wrote “Disney·s The Haunted Mansion.” Spin is interesting, isn·t it? But yes, no matter how you want to look at it, “Mrs. DoubtÀre 2” is apparently going to be a real thing. I have no idea how I·m supposed to feel about this. My Àrst instinct, one I assume is shared by most people upon hearing about a sequel to a 20-year-old Àlm, is to roll my eyes and continue to mourn the death of creativity in Hollywood. Have we really fallen so far that we needed to put Robin Williams back in a dress? Have we run out of 80s franchises to revive that we need to move on to the 90s? What about that “Beetlejuice” sequel that Michael Keaton and Tim Burton have been talking about? And why would you pick “Mrs. DoubtÀre” of all things to bring back? I mean, if we·re going to dig up Robin Williams vehicles from the early 90s, how about a follow up to “Hook” or “Jumanji?” At least those movies presented a universe that merits further exploration. “Mrs. DoubtÀre,” had a pretty deÀnitive ending. Robin Williams proved how much he loved his kids, got a TV show where he pretended to be an elderly woman, and lived happily ever after. What situation could you possibly put him in where 20 years later he would need to don that disguise again? On the other hand, I·d like to believe that Chris Columbus has anticipated this. No rational man would push for a Mrs. DoubtÀre sequel unless they had a pretty compelling story that could only be told with a cross-dressing actor, right? But what hook could there possibly be? OK, it·s 20 years later. Robin Williams has retired his character and is enjoying a moderately successful revival of his voice acting career when he gets tangled up in the maÀa and the only way out is for him to join the FBI and go undercover as an elderly Scottish lady. Or maybe they can bring Pierce Brosnan back into it? The man who married William·s exwife has now gotten himself into a situation of sorts and the only rational way out is for him to go to Williams for make-up advice. It practically writes itself! As I said, I·d like to think that there is a method to this madness. That the people in Hollywood are self-aware enough to recognize a movie needs more than the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia to succeed. But that·s just not true. I know Hollywood people. They don·t think like you and I do. When it comes to making movies, they love the things we hate and they hate the things we love. If a movie becomes an unexpected hit, it was probably an accident. Is “Mrs. DoubtÀre 2” doomed to failure? Probably, but at least with those expectations it will be hard to be disappointed. Travis Fischer is a news writer for Mid-America Publishing and is holding out for a “True Lies” sequel.

Twenty Years Ago April 28, 1994 Kacie Menning made so many kringla this week that her grandmother almost felt overshadowed. “She thought I was going to do them better than she does,” said Kacie, a sixth-grader at Hampton Middle School. Kacie made the kringla, with some help from her grandmother, for the International Food Fair in her social studies class taught by Steve Haberman. The sixth-graders spent four weeks researching the countries of Europe, learning about everything from the weather to the tourist attractions. They then planned a trip through several countries, sending away for information from the countries. The students write a diary account of the trip, draw maps tracing their route and method of transportation and design a brochure advertising the areas they visited. On Thursday evening of last week Elwyn and Joyce Brouwer had a short visit with friends, Earl and Mildred Eisentrager, of rural

The Expression of Interest can be viewed at: http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/ view?id=7521089428 â&#x20AC;˘Christiansen and Palmer attended the IAMU Conference. The following were primary takeaways: oThere is a great deal of legal concern with being an ISP. The FBI is concerned with terrorism and other illegal activities conducted with the service provided by a municipal communication utility. oThose with a municipal communication utility would not incorporate phone and television with their service if they were to do it again today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they would only provide broadband internet. oThe Hampton-Dumont School District is QRZ RQ 8QLWH %URDGEDQG Âą ZKLFK KDV ÂżEHU accessible in the city. â&#x20AC;˘Bryan Kelly and Jeff Anderson of CenturyLink were in attendance and provided input on the

boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussion about a municipal communication utility, including additional challenges that have not been discussed; including FCC approved signal and hardware/software security. CenturyLink is interested in expanding their footprint in Hampton and is going to consider WKH RSWLRQ RI UXQQLQJ ÂżEHU IURP WKH )UDQNOLQ County Fairgrounds (approximately) to the Hampton Industrial Park as a starting point. In the discussion, the board expressed dissatisfaction with the way the discussions with CenturyLink ended in 2013, where CenturyLink concluded that there was little customer interest in expanding the current broadband infrastructure in the Hampton Industrial Park. Christiansen reiterated his frustration with the interest of industry to satisfy the needs of the community only when the Municipal Communications Utility are progressive in their discussions about improvements, only to see the industry interest halt when the board is waiting for action from them. â&#x20AC;˘HMCUB next steps, as discussed by the board: oReview budget numbers from IAMU on the construction and operation of the municipal communications utility.

SECTION A • HAMPTON CHRONICLE

H-D musicians land honors at IHSMA Solo and Small Ensemble Festival

Franklin Chorale concert set for Sunday The Franklin Chorale has once again added a spring concert to it·s performance calendar. Under the direction of Jesse Bunge, the Chorale will present its Spring concert on Sunday, April 27, at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church at 22 1st Ave. SE, Hampton. Tickets will be sold for this performance at a cost of $5 each. Tickets may be purchased in advance from Chorale members and at local banks, including First Bank, Hampton State Bank and United Trust and Savings Bank, all in Hampton, in Latimer at First Citizens National Bank, and Security Bank and Trust in Dumont. Tickets will also be available at the door. Income from ticket sales help the Franklin Chorale meet yearly expenses for music, guest performing groups and updating uniforms. This marks the 36th season for the Chorale. The spring concert will have a great variety of music for all to enjoy. The Àrst portion will feature standard choral literature that has stood the test of time. Compositions by Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Palestrina and contemporary composer Kenneth Jenning·s “The Lord Is The Everlasting God” will be featured. Intermission entertainment will be FELDSPAR Jazz Trio. FELDSPAR is based in Mason City and has been entertaining in concert, as part of larger bands, special events, banquets and dinner parties since its inception in 1988. With Scot Bell on percussion, John Sjolinder on guitar and Al Haight on acoustic bass, the audience is sure to enjoy this gentle jazz. Feldspar will also accompany the Chorale on the Ànal three selec-

tions. The second half of the concert will begin with “Moses” by Ken Medema, a rhythmically challenging musical tribute to a sermon Mr. Medema once heard on “The Rod of Moses”. Composed in 1974, this selection has the power to emotionally inspire the audience, particularly after the recent celebration of Easter and the Resurrection. Next comes some lighter listening, including “Let the River Run” by Carly Simon, from the movie ¶Working Girl” and “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. The audience will recognize Jenkin·s “Adiemus”, as the song used in Delta Airlines commercials. “Gonna Build a Mountain” from “Stop The World - I Want To Get Off” will close the concert. Members of the 2013-2014 Franklin Chorale include Mary Mollenbeck, Andrea Gibson, Julie Baltes, Margaret Smith, Erin Torkelson and Mary Lou Semler, all of Hampton and Dawn Groskruger of Dumont. Singing alto are Julia Showalter, ShefÀeld; Linda Kuehner, Glenda Schwab, Kate Hindin, Amber Bushbaum, Deb Lukensmeyer and Sonja Vosburg, all of Hampton. Tenors include Don Vosburg, Jim Davies, Molli Gerken, Louise Gilchrist, Carl Ballhagen, and Steve Huling, all of Hampton. Singing baritone/bass are Dick Nelson, Paul Kroll, Leon Kuehner, Maynard Koenen, Alan Ferris and Craig Semler, all of Hampton. Savanah Veenstra is the accompanist.

H-Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GOT SOMETHING COOKING FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCE OFFERS A NEW PROGRAM The future just got a whole lot brighter for Hampton-Dumont students who have aspirations to go LQWRWKHPDQDJHPHQWĂ&#x20AC;HOG Recently, Family and Consumer Science teacher Jane Hoegh, learned that she got the green light for a partner1. VKLSWKDWVKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWKDGWKH idea for when she attended an FCS conference several \HDUVDJR)RUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWLPH H-D will partner with Des Moines Area Community Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iowa Culinary Institute to offer our high school students nine free FROOHJHFUHGLWVLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;HOG But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name fool you. Mrs. Hoegh explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program is not just for students wishing to go into the culinary Ă&#x20AC;HOG7KHFXUULFXOXPLV 50 percent culinary and 50

percent management.â&#x20AC;? Therefore, in completing the program, students have a leg-up on the competition if they wish to go in to any type of business management. Another advantage students who complete the program will have over those who have not, is that they have the opportunity to take the test to be Pro-Start FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HG:LWKWKLVFHUWLĂ&#x20AC;FDtion, students go to the top of DMACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting list when seeking admission; a list that is currently on a 3-year wait. And the perks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end with free college credits. With positions in management being highly sought-after, the participants in the 9-credit program will be very marketable. According to the Occupations Career Outlook Handbook, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jobseekers with long-term work experience in food service with a degree

in hospitality, restaurant or food service management will have the best job opportunities.â&#x20AC;? The handbook also puts the median annual salary for food service managers at $47,960, and $46,810 for lodging managers. Students wishing to be a part of the program at HDHS are students who

have taken Foods 1 and Foods 2 with Mrs. Hoegh, or who demonstrate the equivalent skill. They should be students who have aspirations to continue their education at at least a junior college after graduation and WKRVHZKRZLOOEHQHĂ&#x20AC;W from regular atten-

dance. There is no doubt that offering the program through the DMACC Iowa Culinary Institute has given students another opportunity that some only dream about. This fall, the partnership will surely prove to be a positive one.

This winter, Mr. Johnson has joined forces with HamptonDumont High School

Mrs. Yoder H-D Speech PathologistMidnight

Physical Education teacher, Jerry Shafrath, to learn from a master. Mr. Johnson is currently an Iowa State student, where he will graduate this May with his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education. That degree allows him to work at any grade level kindergarten through 12th grade. K-12, would actually be his dream job. He explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love to be K-12 because I like to work with kids

at all different age levels.â&#x20AC;? This love of working with kids is what made him want to be a teacher, combined with his enjoyment of physical activity. With Mr. Shafrath at the helm, Johnson explains what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned most in his time at H-D. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned to be able to adapt and be ready for anything throughout the day. Mr. Shafrath is also a great motivator for students, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been nice to gain experience with that.â&#x20AC;? He says that the thing he has enjoyed most about his student-teaching experience is that he is that much

closer to having his own classroom. He explained that while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a lot of required practicum and observation, the studentteaching process has been

entirely different; in a good way, of course. Mr. Johnson will be at the high school until late May.

CLEAR LAKE TOO MUCH FOR BULLDOGS Hampton-Dumont’s Katelyn Baltes chips onto the green during the Bulldogs’ home opener on Tuesday, April 15 at Hampton Country Club. KRISTI NIXON/HAMPTON CHRONICLE

H-D girls golf team lose close opener HAMPTON – With small patches of snow still on the ground following an April snowstorm, the HamptonDumont girls· golf team braved the elements to hold its home opener at Hampton Country Club on Tuesday, April 15. The result was less to the Bulldogs· liking as they lost a close dual to Webster City, 235-243. H-D·s Katelyn Baltes turned in the medalist score with a 54. “With it being the Àrst home meet, I think I did pretty good,” Baltes said, “but I know I can do a lot better, so I just pushed through the cold weather and hopefully, I do better in some other meets.” Baltes said that snow on the course was a factor for her only once, but the cold made things difÀcult. “When you hit the ball, it was really hard and kind of stung your hands,” Baltes said. “But again, I just pushed through that. I had to move my ball once because of the snow and ice, but other than that it was Àne.” The medalist runner-up was Webster City·s Megan Gilbert, who carded a 55.

Rounding out team scoring for coach Carlene Bergeson·s squad were Caitlin Dombrowski, who shot 56, Katie Brolsma (64) and Whitney Ringleb (69). The scores were high, but the conditions weren·t the best. Baltes has high hopes for the team as the season progresses. “I think coming together really good,” Baltes said. “I think this season we·re going to do pretty good, so I·m excited.” Webster City 235 Hampton-Dumont 243 Webster City (235) – Megan Gilbert 55, Hannah Harfst 56, Brittany Carlson 61, Shannon Swon 63, Taylor Elliot 69, Taylor Pruismann 69.

HAMPTON – At the very start, it was evident which tennis team had an established program. Clear Lake, which had the top singles player in the state at Thursday·s meet, Áexed its muscle against the second-year HamptonDumont boys· squad, 9-0, at Progress Park. Sam Jones, which qualiÀed for the state tennis meet as a freshman for the Lions, gave up only one game – in doubles play – against H-D. In fact, the powerful hitter with a lot of spin rarely gave up a point. Spencer Clark, who played him in both matches, said he·d never seen anything like it before. When the dust cleared, the best efforts against Clear Lake on varsity were 10-4 losses by No. 2 singles player Jesus Del Valle and at No. 4 singles player Nate White, who just came out for the sport last week for coach Jim Davies· squad. “Clear Lake is a very good team and their No. 1 was a state qualifer last year as a freshman,” Davies said. “I am very impressed with H-D players· hustle on the court. I am seeing improvement and there were many good points. They are

coming along well for being so new to the game of tennis.” Del Valle, a junior who is also out for tennis for the Àrst time, said he felt for the team·s experience, the Bulldogs did well against Clear Lake. “We took a good beating,” Del Valle said, “but I hope we·ll see them again later on and take them on. I think we did pretty good for guys just coming out and some for their Àrst meet, with my Àrst year out for tennis, I guess we did pretty good.” His match was a test, Del Valle said. “He had me moving back-andforth, I mean, I had some good hits and he·d just spike the ball,” Del Valle said of his opponent, J.J. Theobald. “I don·t know, he was actually a really good player. I think I did good, better than my doubles, I·d say.” The Bulldogs play host to Webster City on Friday, April 25.

Clear Lake blanks H-D girls tennis team

CLEAR LAKE – The Clear Lake girls tennis team proved to be a formidable opponent for coach Molly Eslick·s Bulldogs on Thursday, April 17. The Lions defeated H-D 9-0 as the best Ànal score for Hampton-Dumont was the No. 3 doubles team of Bekah Christiansen and Ciara Spradlin at 8-3. “We struggled against Clear Lake,” Eslick said. “They are a good team with solid players. We had a lot of games go to deuce, so that is encouraging. Another positive I saw, during doubles, was our volleying. “I liked how the girls were being aggressive at the net – we have been working on our net play at practice, so that is great to see some of that hard work in practice.” Gabbie Tielke earned the lone win for H-D in JV singles at 6-2 for her Àrst victory of the season.

Year after year, Richmond International Raceway puts on the best short track show. Richmond’s unique, 3/4-mile layout produces tremendous side-byside racing, yet drivers can obtain high enough speeds to give it a superspeedway feel. That rare combination allows for the beating and banging that fans always love, with the drivers’ skill playing a major role in winning. Kyle Busch has won three of the last seven races at Richmond International Raceway. Current points leader, Kevin Harvick won the race last year. He also won at this track in 2011.

Racing History April 25, 2010 - Kevin Harvick of Richard Childress Racing won the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway, his first win of the season and his first since the 2007 Daytona 500, while the Earnhardt-Ganassi teammates of Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya finished second and third. On the final lap, Harvick pulled ahead and beat McMurray to the line by 11 one-thousandths of a second over McMurray, snapping Harvick’s 115 race winless streak.

Racing Trivia Who was the youngest driver to win at Richmond International Raceway? a) Dale Earnhardt b) Jeff Gordon

News - Talladega Qualifying to be aired on FOX The May 3 session at Talladega Superspeedway for the Sprint Cup Series will be televised live at 1 p.m. ET on Fox. NASCAR officials believe it’s the first time a qualifying session aside from the Daytona 500 ever has been aired live on network TV (it’s certainly the first since the dawn of the sport’s national TV contract era in 2001). “Fox taking the chance to put qualifying on the broadcast network certainly speaks volumes of how they view the success of the new format,” NASCAR managing director of broadcasting Seth Bacon told USA TODAY Sports. The elimination format, in which drivers make laps in groups across multiple rounds for 40 minutes instead of one session for single-car runs, made its debut at Phoenix International Raceway.

LATIMER NEWS BY MARIE TEGGATZ What a surprise when we arrived on Tuesday for lunch !! Our caterers Phyllis and Denny had posted our meals were FREE on tax day! And what Àlled our stomachs? Stone soup, crackers, ham salad and egg salad sandwiches, a frosted jello treat, and Mildred·s 90th birthday cake. Phyllis, being a former librarian (April is National Library Month) and a great cook, read the story “Stone Soup” before we were served. Pastor Zewert then gave a short Easter message and prayer. Zion·s lunch helpers were Shelly Buseman and Cheryl Schnoes. After our plentiful meal, our two April birthday ladies, Mildred Johansen and Lucille Meyer, were vying for the balloon. Lucille was the winner. As no further program followed, Norma announced our meeting dates in May are the 6th and 21st. Hopefully the tulips will be b looming by then and blood pressures will

be taken. Our prayers are with Jack and also Gay with her check-up next week. Thanks to Phyllis and Denny for a wonderful free meal! Stone soup can be tasty! Latimer Park Society met in the Community Center for its annual Guest Day on Thursday, April 17. A wonderful potluck salad luncheon was enjoyed by 31 members and guests. Hostesses were LaVonne Plagge, Ida Fahrmann and Delores NIelsen and they also provided ham and egg salad sandwiches and mint ice cream for dessert. The program was provided by a dietician from the HyVee Store in Iowa Falls. Her main focus was to encourage us to read labels on food products to watch for sodium, carbs and such. The next meeting will be on Thursday morning May 15. It will be a potluck brunch and will be held in Latimer West Park, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
