Rumors derail new city administrator By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor No one openly claims to have witnessed Matt Ringgenberg doing anything wrong but because of unsubstantiated rumors, the city council of Lake City has rescinded a decision to hire Ringgenberg as city administrator for Lake City. Ringgenberg and Lake City Mayor Gary Fahan were in agreement on that conclusion during a joint interview on Friday, May 2. Ringgenberg does not want to give details about allegations against him other than that they relate to his previous employment at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital, where he had been terminated. Ringgenberg had resigned a seat on the Lake City Council before taking the position as city administrator. The four remaining council members had voted 3 to 0 to hire Ringgenberg, with council members Gary Bellinghausen, Doug Felmer and Brandon Blair voting aye and Tamela Green abstaining because she is Ringgenberg’s aunt. At a special session on April 28, the council rescinded the hiring by the same 3 to 0 vote. Ringgenberg maintains a positive attitude toward the future, “I have some bad feelings for some of the people in the community, now, but I’m hoping the city can move forward. One thing I really want to say is that Gary [Fahan] and a couple of the council members have been really great through this.” Ringgenberg, who has a wife and a young child, plans to go back to school and complete an accounting degree. The rescinding of the city administrator job offer was one of a series of difficulties experienced by the city since Kim Kelly announced in January that she was resigning as city administrator to take a position at the North Central Correctional Facility in Rockwell City. After an initial group of applicants were interviewed by a committee consisting of the mayor, the current city administrator, and council members Felmer and Green, and references were checked, a recommendation was made to the council to hire a woman who had been given glowing references. “The name had leaked out and we got calls saying you made a bad decision,” Fahan said. The council rejected the committee’s recommendation. The next step involved interviewing five candidates by the entire council. Usually a personnel interview for prospective administrative level employees involves a committee that does not include a quorum (majority) of the council so that the interview can be conducted privately, without the formal process of going into closed session. However, the mayor insisted that the entire council be involved in the next round of interviews because he did not want another situation in which a committee’s recommendation was rejected. This process led to the hiring of Kelly Hasner, former director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Nixa in central Missouri. During a visit to Lake City before
assuming his duties full time, Hasner went on a tour of the city with the mayor. Fahan said Hasner showed absolutely no interest in anything the mayor showed him or said to him. Two days later, Hasner called and said he got a job offer that he was going to take. Two more candidates were offered the position and rejected it. Ringgenberg had not applied for the position up to this point, but when the job was posted again, he was one of the applicants. “For the 2-½ years while Matt was on the council, nobody came to me and said you had a bad individual on the council, nothing,” Fahan said. “Once the people started coming out of the woodwork, Gary Bellinghausen and I spent two whole days calling people. He was calling people in Carroll where there was supposed to be something. He couldn’t find anything. I was checking things out. I was calling the League [of cities], everything. I could not find any substantiated stuff there.” Ringgenberg said, “I’ve had multiple calls of support, people stopping by my home and calling me, supporting me and my family.” Prior to the termination, there were people who had opposed him, including a citizen who came into the city offices threatening to get his lawyer involved. “The threats I had during that week were unbelievable,” Ringgenberg said. Allegations about the hospital were not publicly substantiated by hospital staff. A conference call was made to the hospital compliance officer from the city offices with Ringgenberg, Bellinghausen and Fahan participating in the call. Fahan said, “She [the hospital compliance officer] specifically said over the phone ‘no, there is no ongoing investigation. I can tell you that right now.’ I asked, ‘Would you know if an entity outside the hospital was conducting an investigation?’ and she said, ‘Yes, I’d know that. There is nothing.’ I tell people that in town and they look me in the eye and say, ‘Oh, yes there is.’ So, I don’t know where they’re getting this.” Fahan continued, “When you get 40 or 50 people who are dead set in their opinion... I have good friends I stop on the street and say, ‘Can I explain this to you?’ and they say, ‘No, I don’t want to hear it.’ So in their minds, something throughout the years has set something off. They won’t change their minds and they won’t believe the facts if it is right in front of them. That makes it tough and that’s why the council decided to terminate, because you can’t have that kind of division going on in town.” A new committee has been formed to seek a city administrator applicant that the citizens will accept. This committee includes Judy Hungate (a former city administrator), Vicki Keonin (who has been on the library board for 20 plus years), Tamela Green (council member) and Lee Vogt (acting part-time city administrator). Fahan said he is not a part of that committee. Fahan noted with regret that, “We tried to get to the bottom of this and stop the rumors, but it just didn’t work.”

Ceremony honors Jamie Buenting and his family By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor On Monday, April 28, Jamie Buenting, a Rockwell City Police officer who was killed in the line of duty in September of last year, was honored with a 50-mile bike ride from Webster City through Fort Dodge and ending at Rockwell City. The memorial bike ride was a Tour de Force event. Tour de Force was organized in New York after the 9/11 tragedy with the dual mission of honoring the victims of 9/11 by keeping their memory alive through cycling events and to raise funds to benefit the families of police officers who were killed in the line of duty. The memorial ride to honor Jamie Buenting was organized by Lt. Kelly Hindman, District 7 Commander of the Iowa State Patrol and Laura Judge, a former law enforcement officer and member of the Tour de Force organization. Judge is an Ankeny resident, one of the bike riders who joined the organization when it spread across the country from New York. It has subsequently become an international organization. Those participating in the bike ride on April 28 included not only Tour de Force members but also other bicyclists who wanted to
honor Jamie Buenting and his widow, Amanda, and two young children. Following the ride, a ceremony was held at the Rockwell City Community Center. Lt. Hindman told those gathered there, “A few months ago I took a phone call from Laura over here. She asked me whether I wanted to do a bike ride in honor of Jamie. She called the right person because I happen to be a fairly avid bicyclist, so we were all on board.” He added, “This ride would not have been possible without the support of our law enforcement officers.” Hindman said the ride was everything he thought it would be and more. He acknowledged the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) that was present in Rockwell City on, Sept. 13, the day of the fatal shooting. CERT is a multiagency team that trains together for emergencies. Jamie Buenting was a member of the team and was fatally shot while participating in an attempted arrest of an armed suspect. Hindman noted that some of Jamie’s CERT colleagues participated in the memorial bike ride. “We ask these people to do a lot

Laura Judge explained the purpose of the Tour de Force organization
and then asked Jamie Buenting’s family members to come forward to receive a check and medallions in Jamie Buenting’s honor. Amanda and the kids then presented gifts to Tour de Force members.

Public meeting slated for major drainage project By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor The Calhoun County and Webster County Boards of Supervisors may finally be on the same page regarding a major upgrade for a drainage project. Proposed improvements could double the cost of a project that has already cost property owners in the drainage district more than a half million dollars. The nearly 13 miles of drainage, established as an easement in 1912, serves drainage for 12,035 acres in Webster County and 10,914 acres in Calhoun County. The Calhoun County supervisors were concerned that a joint resolution with Webster County would bind them into proceeding with the project upgrade if the wording of a motion is not carefully drafted. Attorney Dave Wollenzien had explained to the Calhoun County Supervisors at a past meeting that if an engineer had recommended the project upgrade, then the counties would be required to proceed regardless of what a majority of the property owners wanted. This is based on court precedents, one of which involved Webster County. Fortunately for the counties, the engineer’s report on this particular project gave three options for the boards, one of which is to do nothing further at this point. The supervisors met in Fort Dodge in the afternoon of April 29 and agreed to hold an informational meeting with the public at a later date, an action that does not bind the boards to further action in the way
that a project hearing might. Wayne Dowling, drainage clerk in the Calhoun County Auditor’s Office, was at the meeting in Fort Dodge, along with the county auditor and the supervisors. Dowling said the meeting was cordial and the supervisors of both counties now seem to be on the same page. Earlier in the morning at the meeting in Calhoun County, Steve O’Connor, recommended installing a fire door and fire wall in the court
house basement with a one-hour fire delay rating to improve the safety at the court house in Rockwell City He noted that the open stairwell as it is now could create an internal chimney effect for a fire in the basement. Based on discussions with contractors, the estimated cost of those improvements, along with a metal gate to redirect people away from an unsafe exit route, would total about $1,500. O’Connor said that the fire door
and fire wall would provide a bandage on a situation that would need more extensive measures if the county wants to preserve the courthouse for the next generation and the generation after that. If that is the county’s intent, consideration in the future should be given to a sprinkler system throughout the building, a project that would be very expensive.

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm
Gus and Gertie’s Goose Nest Gertrude had had it. The last two years of nesting had ended in disappointments and grief. With Gus, her mate, they had carefully constructed their nests on the banks of the Skunk River east of the Salem Stub. Using tall dried grass and reeds, as they had learned from the other Canada geese in their flock, they had built what Gus and Gertie considered to be respectable brooder homes. That first year, Gertie even spied a maverick brown egg lying close to her nest, probably laid by an immature female not ready to nest yet, and added it to her nest of four white eggs. Gertie believed in adoption and diversity. As she was supposed to, Gertie rotated the eggs every hour or so, and added down to the nest to keep the eggs warm while she took her breaks. However, an unexpected flood washed Gertie and Gus’s nest away. Gertie and Gus flew above the Skunk River bottom over and over again, along with the other Canada geese that had also lost nests, honking and searching. But to no avail. Gertie and Gus tried to mate again that season, but their time had passed. The second year, Gertie chose some higher ground, against Gus’s beak-clicking protests, and laid six beautiful white eggs. Gertie and Gus were so proud. But a marauding coyote on the prowl, discovered the nest. Gus, on guard, went into action with his broken-wing act in an attempt to lead the coyote away, and almost had the coyote fooled. But he was a smart old coyote, being much experienced in egg/gosling hunting. He had spied Gertie on the nest and, after realizing he was being tricked, circled back. After all, he had a mate and a den of pups to feed, too. Gertie and Gus’s grief was so great, that they cried to the others in
Gertie in her nest on top of a metal grain bin. their flock. The flock came forward and rubbed necks with Gertie and Gus to help them through their loss. Gertie and Gus didn’t even try to mate again that year. On their flights around the Skunk River bottom and to area corn fields to feed, Gertie had noticed an old rusty grain bin, all overgrown with grape vines. She landed on top of the metal bin a couple of times and noticed the flat peak and camouflage of vines. No flood or coyote could get to her nest here! Gus knew from the look in Gertie’s eye that she had made up her mind, and it was useless to argue. The third season, they made their nest on top of the grain bin. The eggs were about to hatch. Gertie could feel the slight movements within the eggs. Gus was standing close by on the ground in anticipation. Suddenly, Gertie looked down on Gus. How would her goslings get to the ground? A panic gripped her. They would fall and be killed! But she tended to her goslings anyway, assisting them

with the shell, as they pecked and broke their way to freedom. One by one, when it was time, the goslings left the nest. When they felt the hot tin of the grain bin, they rolled down the steep roof and, perhaps with their little wing buds flapping and helping some, fell into the clutches of the grape vines below. Only one of the six didn’t survive. Over the course of 24 hours, Gertie and Gus led their brood the half mile to the Skunk River. Gertie would stop every hour or so and let them nestle and rest under her. She even picked up a stray gosling along the way, and cared for it. She was back to her six. Once in the water, the goslings followed Gertie and Gus around in the cool, shallow water close to the bank. Other geese in the flock came forward with their goslings and honked their admiration at Gertie and Gus’s first brood. Now, Gertie and Gus nest each year on the grain bin, while their brood search out cupolas, belfries, and domes, their goslings able to flap their tiny wings a little bit upon their fall from the nest. The Skunk River flows on. Have a good story? Call or text Curt Swarm in Mt.

At one time in my life, I had regular contact with dozens of murderers. I spent time where they lived, as well as where rapists and thieves lived. For about a year of my 2 ½ years as a correctional officer at the Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison, I was assigned to cell house 17. Most of that time I worked the top tier, known as Honor Lifer’s Range, where inmates serving life sentences could be assigned after a period of having no disciplinary actions taken against them. They were a fairly well-behaved group of murderers. I certainly would not wish on any of them the kind of traumatic death that was recently inflicted on an Oklahoma inmate during a botched attempt at lethal injection. Iowa does not have a death penalty and hasn’t executed a prisoner since 1963. In Iowa, a life sentence really does mean life. The only way someone sentenced to life can qualify for parole is to have the sentence commuted by the governor, a rather rare occurrence. In his several terms as governor, Terry Branstad has commuted three life sentences of inmates who were convicted of murders that took place when they were adults. There was a group of 38 men in Iowa prisons who were juveniles at the time murders took place and Branstad commuted their sentences as a result of a U.S. Supreme Court decision prohibiting a life sentence for juvenile offenders. As unusual as the concept of ‘honor lifers’ may seem, it makes sense from a correctional facility operations standpoint. Inmates with little or no chance of ever being released from prison need something to strive for in their lives. The honor range had cells that were slightly larger than others (all cells at the ISP were one-man cells). The inmates on the honor range had

a few minor benefits not given the other inmates, benefits that would seem rather meager to someone other than an inmate, but such privileges as added canteen items and a later evening lockdown time had inflated importance for those living in the stark environment of a prison. At the other end of the reward and punishment system was administrative segregation. Those given more than a couple of days of admin seg were transferred to the highest security cell house, cell house 20. Inmates in cell house 20 were taken in full restraints (belly chain and leg irons) to an exercise pen to pace for 15 minutes, three times a week, followed by a shower in a locked shower cell. They did not otherwise get out of their cells except to go to the infirmary or a special section of the visiting room. The majority of inmates sent to admin seg were there less than 30 days. Prior to my employment at the prison, the administration had tried to put an inmate in cell house 20 permanently. Edward Clark was convicted of killing another inmate while Clark was serving a sentence for robbery. A few years later Clark was charged with and subsequently convicted of murdering a correctional officer. Clark appealed his indefinite assignment to cell house 20 and the court found in his favor, ruling that he should only spend a reasonable amount of time in admin seg. The administration believed that the rest of Clark’s life would be a reasonable time in admin seg, but Clark was released back into general population. He was in cell house 17
while I worked there, although not on the honor range. I suppose executing a person like Clark would make sense if it could be done without the extended legal procedures that exist in states that still have the death penalty. My belief that the death penalty is bad policy is not based on sympathy for inmates like Clark or even for inmates whose killing was limited to a single incident. I doubt that the death penalty is a deterrent to murder in most cases. The killer is often driven by impulses that cannot be influenced by any rational considerations. People are not likely to consciously decide spending the rest of their life in prison is acceptable but being executed is not. Even if such a consideration is, on rare occasion, a factor in a criminal’s thought process, the fear of execution is as likely to result in a killer not risking leaving behind living witnesses, thus expanding the number of murders beyond what it would otherwise be. Calculating the net impact of the death penalty on murder rates is speculation, but it is probably negligible either way or non-existent. Perhaps the most compelling reason for the death penalty is that it can create a sense of justice for the loved ones of the victims as well as for society in general. The problem is, if we think in terms of closure to the tragedy requiring an execution, that closure is likely to take decades. Support for the death penalty is understandable, but I just don’t believe it makes sense as public policy.
Dear Editor, Saturday, May 10th marks the 22nd anniversary of one America’s great days of giving-the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect from our customer’s non-perishable food donations. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in need, and there is many in our community that need our help. Last year 74.6 million pounds of food was collected nationally, feeding an estimated 30 million people. Over the course of its 21year history, the drive has collected more than a billion pounds of food, thanks to our universal delivery network that spans the entire nation, including Puerto Rico, Guam and U.S. Virgin Islands. The need for donations is great. Currently, 49 million Americans--1 in 6--are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Sixteen million are children who feel hunger’s impact on their overall health and
ability to perform at school. And nearly 5 million seniors over the age 60 are food insecure, with many who live on fixed incomes often too embarrassed to ask for help. Our food drive’s timing is crucial, as well. Food banks and pantries often receive the majority of their donations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. By springtime, many pantries are depleted, entering the summer low on supplies at time when many school breakfast and lunch programs are not available. Participating in this year’s Letter Carrier National Food Drive is simple. Just leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox. Non-perishable foods are items that do not spoil, decay or have expiration dates. On Saturday, May 10th your letter carrier will pick it up and do the rest. I invite you to join in America’s great day of giving and help us in our fight to end hunger. Sincerely, Bonnie Enabnit Letter Carrier Lake City, Iowa

Mother’s Day Bittersweet for New Mom Planning for a new baby is an exciting time for a family. Decorating the nursery, buying sleepers, and preparing for changes a baby brings all add to the miracle of the joyous celebration. For many families, pregnancies go smoothly and the baby’s delivery are cherished memories. For Pam and Roland Speck of Dayton, Iowa, bringing their miracles into the world proved to be a difficult journey. The couple spent four years trying to get pregnant. After in-vitro fertilization, Pam became pregnant with twins. The pregnancy was complicated. Pre-term labor began at 22 weeks and Pam developed preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is defined as high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a woman who previously had normal blood pressure. Left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious — even fatal — complications for both mother and baby. Pam’s twins, Alyssa and Chloe, were delivered via cesarean section at 36 weeks in 2006. In 2011 Roland was diagnosed with prostate cancer. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.” Roland and Pam attacked the cancer aggressively. He received regular infusions of chemotherapy at Stewart Memorial Community Hospital. During those dark days the couple discussed having another baby. “I had wanted another child for a very long time,” remembers Pam. “We knew, in all likelihood, I would be a single parent. We had our twins, who are wonderful. But I also felt the need for another child who would be something positive to focus on in the days ahead.” After discovering she was pregnant, Pam consulted with Dr. Adam Swisher, board certified family medicine and obstetrics physician with McCrary Rost Clinic. Her hopes for a smooth pregnancy this time were quickly dismissed. “I had high blood pressure and developed gestational diabetes. After several stress tests at SMCH, Dr. Swisher advised bed rest. However, with taking care of Roland, the twins, and our animals, we modified that as much as possible.” During Pam’s pregnancy, Roland’s condition deteriorated, and he spent more and more time in the hospital. “Everyone on the staff were incredibly compassionate,
anticipating our every need. They even knew our favorite drinks,” remembers Pam. “Sometimes it’s the little things that matter. There were multiple instances when Rollie was having trouble getting around and Dr. Swisher personally helped him out to the car. The day of my c-section he made a point to have a chair brought in for Rollie so he would not have to sit on the rolling stool. Basically, I consider Dr. Swisher to be not only an outstanding physician, but an outstanding human being. He treats the whole person, and does so with unmatched skill and compassion.” “Caring for the whole family strengthens the patient-doctor relationship,” says Dr. Swisher. “We took care of Pam, Rollie and the girls, really getting to know the whole family and providing, not only the day-to-day health care, but the intangible assistance that only comes from understanding the patient’s needs outside of the examination room.” At 37 weeks, on Roland’s last “good” day, Pam delivered a baby girl, Vivian, on September 24, 2013. Twenty-four hours after meeting his newborn daughter, Roland’s illness forced him to be hospitalized. “When Vivian was two days old, we were told the cancer spread to his liver and his time was short. That was a very difficult day,” recalls Pam. “I was emotional and hormonal and became hysterical. It was the worst day of my life. Nurses Lisa Miller and Regina Rhea, came to Rollie’s room and talked to me, helping me to stay calm. They kept me sane.” “Caring for the whole family involves working to ensure healthy beginnings, in addition to making a patient comfortable in the last stage of life and every health need
in between,” says Dr. Swisher. “Our staff works and trains diligently to give the best quality care possible.” “Dr. Swisher, the OB nursing staff and hospice staff were incredibly sensitive to the situation. With the birth of the twins and Rollie’s cancer, we’ve sought care at larger hospitals, but the nursing staff at SMCH was the best we’ve ever encountered,” says Pam. “They were kind, compassionate and incredibly skilled. Our entire family sees Dr. Swisher and I’d not trust my children’s well being with anyone else. He managed Rollie’s care for the last 2 years of his life and was always willing to look into new treatments. He did everything possible to give him the best quality of life. He showed a tremendous amount of compassion when it was time to discuss end of life decisions.” “I chose to practice family medicine because of the broad spectrum of care family medicine covers. I am able to care for patients during every stage of life,” notes Dr. Swisher. “The Speck family’s situation encompassed every aspect of health care - from the hope of a new beginning to the close of a final chapter. Family medicine, rather than a specialized practice, appealed to me as a physician as it affords diverse opportunities for providing excellent care.” Roland died on November 10, 2013. In the months since Roland’s death, Pam reveals she feels as if she’s in a trance. The baby, though, has been her miracle, a salve that helps her in her grief, “How can I go to a dark place, looking at Vivian’s face?” she asks. She cuddles her cooing five month old, who falls asleep with her tiny fist clutching her daddy’s wedding ring.
Spring Reminders to Rockwell City Residents:
The City of Rockwell City would like to remind residents of a few city ordinances that often result in complaints upon violation. Mowing. Chapter 52 of the City Code requires the mowing of property within the City. Grass, weeds or brush shall be cut, mowed and maintained not to exceed six inches (6”) in residential, business and industrial areas. Properties not mowed in accordance with the ordinance shall be mowed by the City or their agents, and billed to the property owner as established in the ordinance. Grass Clippings. Section 135.03 prohibits grass clippings from being deposited in the street. The reason for this regulation is because the grass will plug the storm sewers. Tree Trimming. Section 151.12 requires property owners to keep tree branches trimmed at least 15’ above the street and 8’ above the sidewalks. Leash Law. Section 55.06 prohibits animals, including cats and dogs, from running at large within the corporate limits of the city. Solid Waste Removal. Section 55.09 requires removal and disposal of animal feces from public property, park property, public right-of-way or the property of another person, such as during walks.

NOTICE: The City of Rockwell City, on behalf of its citizens, will aggressively enforce these ordinances, starting now.

ISU EXTENSION NEWS Science for Young Thinkers Workshop
“Science for Young Thinkers” is the title of a workshop being presented by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Child care providers and interested parents and grandparents can participate in the workshop on Thursday, May 22, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Greene County ISU Extension Office, 104 West Washington Street, in Jefferson. Sandra McKinnon, ISU Extension family life program specialist, says, “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to help future scientists learn the basics. Science is exploration. That’s something that both adults and children can do together. Science activities can be really fun.”
“Children learn best when they are interested in a particular topic and when they are involved in the learning,” explains McKinnon. Workshop participants will explore the process of science inquiry and learn three things to encourage children’s daily science explorations. Child care providers are to register via the Iowa Child Care Training Registry at https://ccmis.dhs.state. ia.us/trainingregistry/. Two hours of licensing credit will be available to providers A nominal fee is charged. Payment is due by May 20 to the Greene County Extension Office. Parents and grandparents may register directly with the Extension office. For more information, call 515-386-2138.
competitions and also had ten of their members help with the packaging of Meals from the Heartland. Though these were wonderful experiences, those members in the Blue and Gold jackets did one thing that they will never forget during the third general session. Six lucky members of the South Central Calhoun FFA spotted two of the keynote speakers just before they were about to go on to the stage. As the members approached the two speakers, smiles spread across their faces. In awe with who stood before them, the members politely asked Bill Fennelly, and “The Mayor,” Fred Hoiberg, for their autographs. The six teens then proceeded to take pictures with the two. This is surely a moment these members will have forever etched into their memories. The 86th Iowa FFA Leadership Conference continued with the fourth general session, in which Iowa FFA degrees were distributed, along with the Star awards, and the introduction of new state officers. The Blue and Gold flooded Ames and rocked Hilton Coliseum, leading the meeting of a life time for six Future Farmers of America.

We offer our sympathy to the family of Glenn Austin who passed away recently. Glenn and Phyllis Austin lived at Sunnyview for a while before moving to Mason City in 2012. We remember them as a devoted couple with a warm sense of humor. Here is part five of “Meeting the Residents” of Sunnyview. “Elgene Howard moved to Sunnyview in 2010. She grew up in Somers, married a farmer, Jim, and did all the things needed in that profession. Her husband drove a mail truck and she helped with this for many years. There are four children, five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. In 1993 they were traveling in their fifth wheel and decided they liked Henderson, Nevada. They purchased a mobile home in one of the parks and spent winters with friends enjoying warmer weather. They would come back to Iowa for the summer. She still likes to return to Henderson and visit old friends. Elgene says, ‘My parents lived at Sunnyview and when I was alone and my sight kept me from driving I decided to move into a place I was familiar with.’ She likes the activities here, likes her suite and the comforts it provides. Vicki Fagan and husband Jon moved to Sunnyview in 2010. They decided it was too much work to keep up a lake home and the property Jon had farmed. Vicki worked in the National Bank for forty years. She lost Jon in 2011. Vicki enjoys playing cards and going to resident parties. She says,
‘Meals are a treat, the staff is so friendly and fun to be around. I’m so thankful not to be sitting in a house alone.’ She enjoys private time in her apartment and having the opportunity to get out among friends when she chooses.” Submitted by Jo Ann Maguire (To Be Continued). It’s hard to miss the signs of spring, and farmers may be looking at their “planting date window.” How about Iowa drought conditions for this growing season? According to a March 20, 2014 article in the Des Moines Register, the outlook for Iowa indicates an end to the drought conditions this spring. For more info, see http://www.desmoinesregister. c o m / s t o r y / m o n e y / agriculture/2014/03/20/us-weatherforecasters-see-iowa-droughtending-this-spring/6660783/. However, according to the drought monitor http://droughtmonitor.unl. edu/Home/StateDroughtMonitor. aspx?IA, as of April 22 the map still showed persistent drought in Calhoun County including some of Sac, Carroll and Greene counties. Around Sunnyview, our green grass might make us think we are in the clear. We’ll see. Someone shared this inspirational quote recently, from a collection by Kevin Kruse at www.forbes.com. Attributed to Michael Jordan, “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Sunny Knoll would like to honor Agnes Eileen Bartels as their resident spotlight for May. Eileen Bartels was welcomed into the world by her parents, Fred and Bertha Gesy; along with her twin sister Irene on May 9, 1922. Born on the family farm outside of Fonda, Eileen would be one of 11 Gesy children and would go on to graduate from Our Lady of Good Council in Fonda. Eileen married her husband LaVerne on June 24, 1942. They were blessed to have 3 children Elaine, Jack and Jean. Laverne passed August 19, 1952 and in 1954 Eileen and her children moved to Rockwell City. Eileen worked for Bill’s Super Value, worked with Dr. Underiner and was also head cook at Sunny View. Eileen enjoys quilting, embroidering, cooking and visiting with her 10 grandchildren and her 20 great-grandchildren. If you get a chance stop in and say hi to Eileen and see her beautiful picture hanging in the dining room. We started the week off with a visit from Girl Scout Troop 83. Channing, Harmony and Nadia came and shared their cookies with our Sunday afternoon coffee social. Despite the bad weather the girls had fun going up and down the halls passing cookies to those who did not come out. The shortbread cookies are my favorite but the cranberry citrus were a big hit too. Thanks
Eileen Bartels Sunny Knolls Resident Spotlight so much to the girls for battling the stormy weather to join us. It seems like this week has just been gloomy with all this rain, but we talked about how the grass is getting green and farmers busy getting ready to plant. We also discussed upcoming outings. We are going to plan a trip out to Twin Lakes for ice cream, visiting Ceramics and Crafts by Vavak. We also talked about going to the apple orchard and of course trips to the pizza ranch! We also had a family council meeting this past week. I enjoy getting ideas from our families! We came up with some new ideas that we are will be excited to get started. Plus we are going to start planning a family picnic for July.

My Thought for the Day is: Nothing is impossible to the man who doesn’t have to do it himself. The Trivia Question for the week is: Who first performed “The Iowa Corn Song” in public in 1912? David Nelson has returned from a hospital stay and is doing well. Glad you are better Davy. On Wednesday the Children of the reading class presented each member of the coffee group with a May Basket that they had made themselves. Thanks Kids they were beautiful. Haven’t these rains been wonderful? But this weekend will be great for me attending my Grand-daughter Kristen O’Connor’s wedding. I am so looking forward to it.
On Thursday Toni Kerns and Bette Knapp attended the Guest Day of the Jefferson United Methodist Women. It was held in the Jefferson Scranton High School, in the “Ram Room.” The food was prepared by the Students and it was beautifully served by them. The Music students presented the program with Vocal and Instrumental pieces, they were really good. A BIG thank you to the UMW for inviting us. Well it’s supposed to warm up this week; that will be a welcome change. The answer to the Trivia Question is: The Shriners’.

Titan boys track team takes second place at Ross Samuelson Co-Ed Meet By Doug Dornath The Titans varsity boys track team amassed 200 team points en route to the 2014 Ross Samuelson CoEd boys meet championship Friday, May 2, in Lake City. The Titans won titles in six events and grabbed second place in 10 more. “It was great to get back out and compete tonight,” said SCC head boys track coach Bryan Case. “We haven’t run since last Friday night, and this past week was not the greatest for practice, but I thought our kids handled the time off very well. All of our kids had quality events tonight and we had a number of personal best and even set a new meet record in the shuttle. We’re looking forward to running at conference on Tuesday (May 6) and hopefully we’ll be in contention for the conference title.” Among the champions for the Titans at the meet included Cody Schoop in the discus with a personal best throw of 142-feet, 2-inches, Sam Spencer won the long jump with a leap of 19-6, Kody Case won the 200 dash in 23.75 seconds, Jake Petzenhauser earned gold in the 400 low hurdles in 55.98 while the Titans 4x800 relay (8:42.42) took first and the shuttle hurdle relay (59.37) set a new Ross Samuelson Co-Ed meet record. SCC’s second place efforts came in the shot put as Schoop was second (44-1.5), Spencer in the high jump (5-10), Tanner Schrad was edged out at the finish of the 3,200 as he finished with a silver (10:16.23), Kody Case was second in the 100 (11.45), Petzenhauser earned second in the 400 dash (52.51) and he also took second in the 110 high hurdles (15.84), while Ryan Daisy placed second in a pair of events as well (the 800 in 2:10.49 and the 1,600 in 4:53.10). In addition, the Titans were second in the 4x200 in 1:36.95 while also taking second in the 4x100 relay in 44.68. SCC grabbed third place efforts in several events including Trevor
