By KIM DEMORy egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net Kim Hiltabidle, the daughter of Kristy Chapman and the late Steve Hiltabidle, is this year’s Valedictorian of Eagle Grove High School. While school has always been an important part of her life, Hiltabidle said she never really thought about this goal until her freshman year of high school. That’s when she found out she was ranked number three in her class for academics. “Then I thought, ‘Wow, I could really do something with this,’” she said. While Hiltabidle used note cards as her secret study weapon, she also found that participating in extracurricular events helped her focus better in school. It was a matter of time management. Those activities included Student Council, track, cross country, National Honor Society, and being one of Aaron’s Advocates. She also held down a part-time job at Lewrights and worked at the Eagle Grove Family Aquatic Center. “I believe that if you’re not involved, chances are you won’t use all that free time to study anyway. You just organize your time better when you are involved in several things,” she said. Hiltabidle hopes the underclassmen will follow suit and also get involved in their school. “It makes high school more enjoyable...you make so many more friends. I believe that the people who say high school was the worst years of their life thought so because they weren’t involved and didn’t care,” she said. In addition, she also cautions

students to not make high school all about fun. She wants you to remember the most important reason you are there - to learn. “If you don’t take the time to study and care about your grades, you will end up regretting it, especially when it comes time for college and scholarships,” she said. Hiltabidle plans on attending the University of Iowa to study Spanish and pre-physician’s assistant courses. She also hopes to spend some time studying abroad. As Hiltabidle prepares to begin the next chapter in her life, she said there are many good memories she will take with her from Eagle Grove, especially the people. “There are those I wonder what I will do without,” she said. Some of those people also include her teachers. “I might not remember (exactly) what they taught me (in years to come), but I will always remember who they are.”

Achieving her goal

Mickelson graduates as Salutatorian of her class by Kim demory egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net The time has finally arrived graduation. In Makali Mickelson’s own words to her classmates as she gave the Salutatorian speech during graduation ceremonies on Sunday, May 18, “It’s the moment we’ve all been looking forward to, but dreading at the same time.” After 13 years in the Eagle Grove Area School District, Mickelson bid farewell to her high school days, earning the honor of addressing her peers after earning the secondhighest grade point average in her class of 3.86. It is a goal she has worked towards throughout her school career. It wasn’t always easy, but now that hard work has paid off. While school work was always at the top of Mickelson’s priority list, she also was very active in extracurricular events. Those included dancing on the Golden Stars Drill Team, being in Student Council, participating in FBLA, cheerleading for football and wrestling, and being selected as a member of the National Honor Society. She was also one of Aaron’s Advocates, promoting random acts of kindness. In her spare time, she holds down a job at Eagle Grove Greenhouses. “I think you need to be wellrounded,” Mickelson said of the reason she stayed so involved throughout high school. “And it makes high school more enjoyable.” There are many special times spent at Eagle Grove High School that Mickelson will take with her, including all the new people she met along the way and building relationships with her peers as well as teachers. Words of advice Mickelson

A vocal farewell would like to leave for the underclassman are that good grades will benefit you in the long run; and that once you have a bad grade, it’s hard to get your GPA back up, so work hard the first time and always do the best you can. Science has always interested Mickelson, which is why she has decided to pursue a degree in premed from the University of Iowa. She would eventually like to become an anesthesiologist. While Mickelson admits she will miss the good old days of high school, she is ready to see what the future will hold. “I’m excited for something new,” she said. Mickelson is the daughter of Chris and Jodi Mickelson.

Principal Kruger will say goodbye to Eagle Grove Elementary at end of school year

We did it

by Kim demory egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net Mike Kruger has impacted a lot of lives over the course of the last 20 years in Eagle Grove, and most of those have been children between the ages of four and 10. In 1993, Kruger came to this school district as a fourth grade teacher. He spent 11 years in that position, not just teaching them the subjects they needed to know, but instilling in them a life-long love of learning. After a brief one year hiatus to serve as the principal of SCMT school in Sheffield, he came back to Eagle Grove when the elementary principal position opened up here. But, after eight years in this role, he will once again be bidding farewell to the district, staff, and student population he cares so much about. When the 2014 - 2015 school year begins, he will be serving as the associate superintendent and K-12 principal at NE Hamilton in Blairsburg. “It’s hard to give up what we have here,” Kruger admitted as the school year nears its end. He continued, saying that there are so many great things happening at Eagle Grove Elementary, and much of that is due to the dedicated teachers and staff who are continually striving to do better for the sake of the children. “I am so proud of our staff and the things we have going on here,” Kruger said. “I can go up and down the list of great teachers and leaders we have at every level in the elementary.” Kruger said it is this “high quality” staff that is one of the school district’s biggest assets right now. Add to that the fact that they are “working smarter” by sharing ideas from grade-to-grade and teacher-to-teacher, and that equals success. Kruger said when he was a fourth grade teacher, each teacher had their own set of students and that’s who they focused on. Today, education and teaching in Eagle Grove has shifted to sharing students. “It used to be ‘my’ students. Now it’s ‘our’ students,” Kruger said. Teachers in Eagle Grove, according to Kruger, are more focused on collaboration about student achievement, and they are basing what they do on what the data shows. In addition, the teachers keep challenging each other to be better. It’s not a competition, Kruger said, but rather, when one teachers sees another teacher doing something that works well, they want to improve their lessons as well. This is only one aspect of the principal job that Kruger has enjoyed seeing the teachers grow, develop, and learn right along with the students. While many principals find themselves caught up in the day-to-day details of running a school, Kruger has made it a priority to stay in contact with not only the teachers, but the students as well. He enjoys interacting with them, visiting the classrooms, and even letting them throw pies in his face for a good cause. He even dressed up like a woman as part of a reading challenge, although he admits that wasn’t one of his favorite moments. But he did it for the students. To him, the kids are the most rewarding part of his job, as well as developing relationships with their parents. “I love what I do…I’ve loved it all - teaching, being a principal, coaching

(seventh grade volleyball, assistant high school track, middle school track, and girls basketball all while he was teaching), and even teaching driver’s education (for nearly 20 years),” said Kruger. “It’s so rewarding because of the people.” “Mike is a great leader,” said fellow co-worker Joe Chamberlin. “He has worked hard at making Eagle Grove Elementary School a great school and he really cares for his students and staff. The students and staff will miss him, but wish him the best and know he will be a great asset to his new school.” As Kruger prepares to begin his new career as associate superintendent at a new school, he leaves Eagle Grove with pride knowing that the school is moving forward. He is especially proud to see how well the Hispanic population has been embraced in the district. “The school becoming more diverse is a great thing,” he said. Being a principal isn’t always easy, and you can’t keep all of the people happy all of the time, but Kruger said the few negatives are always outweighed by the many positives that take place inside the walls of Eagle Grove Elementary. It’s the people and their willingness to do better that keeps the district moving forward. “Eagle Grove has been a big part of my life. There are so many good people - parents, staff, students…Everyone has been so supportive. It’s been a great 20 years,” he said.

Supervisors sign agreement on ambulance transfers, reject bids for DDE#131’s televising By MATT VOIGTS wrightcomonitor@gmail.com

At their May 19 meeting, the Wright County Supervisors finalized a mutual support agreement with Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion and Belmond. The County will commit $50,000 of support for expenses from ambulance transfers to out-of-county hospitals, up to 50% of the costs or $600 per transfer, for residents not otherwise able to cover the costs for Financial Year 201415. The agreement had been under discussion for several months. It will cover physical and mental health transfers. It only covers transfers, not ambulance services direct to Iowa Specialty Hospital. “We do a lot of transfers of patients with minimal financial abilities, and the hospital has basically absorbing that cost,” said Brian Jenson, Ambulance Leader for Iowa Specialty, noting that the cost of transfers varies. “We appreciate the county working with us to start a process to come to a solution to this.” At the same meeting, in another unexpected development in the ongoing saga of Drainage District #131, the Supervisors rejected the sole bid received to televise the district’s tile, setting the new bid letting date for June 9, 10:00. The motion was made by Supervisor Rick Rasmussen and seconded by Karl Helgevold. Stan Watne had voted to approve the received bid, which was significantly higher than McClure Engineering’s original estimate of $51,000. Keith Hubbard of McClure said that the bid was “fair,” and attributed the discrepancy to seeking it within the busy season. The decision to televise and potentially lay new tile in Drainage District #131 initially met with impassioned disapproval from landowners at Supervisors meetings

on Feb 17 and March 17, and was expected to lead to a remonstrance against further work. The 1917 tile line that currently serves the district has been operating below expected capacity. By April, however, landowner support tipped toward taking action. At the Supervisors’ April 14 meeting, less expense grassed waterway drainage options were introduced that would cost between $77,000 and $114,000, versus costs for new tile estimated between $1.3 and $1.6 million. Also at the meeting: - Adam Clemons, Wright County Engineer, introduced the county’s new heavy equipment operator Jody Eisentrager. A Goldfield resident, Eisentrager will be based in Clarion and primarily work on the sign crew in the summer and a truck route in the winter. Replacement of the County’s 7,000-plus road signs was given impetus due to a federal mandate concerning minimum sign size and height of lettering that must be completed by 2018. Supervisors Rasmussen and Helgevold both expressed displeasure at the mandate, calling it unnecessary and costly. According to Colleen Meier, Director of Communications for Wright County, replacing a sign costs $40 for materials and $60 for labor. Supervisor Rasmussen, member of the board for Eagle Grove’s Upper Des Moines Opportunities (UDMO), reiterated the charity’s need for donations of food items, toiletries, funds. See more information in their director’s Letter to the Editor on page 9 of this week’s Eagle. - Betty Ellis, Auditor, offered a clarification to the Monitor’s story from last week: B & W Dust Control’s approved bid for this summer’s ditch spraying work was $61,000, and the company did not perform brush control last summer.

Marching his way across the Midwest

City Council approves Janet Fuller as new EMS Director

By KIM deMOry egeagle@goldfieldaccess.net Justin Sampson, son of Mark and Ann Sampson of Eagle Grove, started playing trumpet in the fifth grade, thanks to the suggestion of then Robert Blue Middle School band teacher, Ambie Timmerman. While he might have guessed it ran in the family since his grandfather, Mel Sampson, also played the trumpet, he never imagined this brass instrument would one day lead him on a 10 week adventure throughout the Midwest. It all started 20 years ago, before Justin was even born. His aunt Melissa (Sampson) Anderson (Mark’s sister) joined the Colt Cadets Drum & Bugle Corps as a flag twirler in the color guard. She enjoyed it so much, she performed each summer throughout both high school and college. So when Justin made the comment to his father earlier this winter that he might not play baseball this summer, Mark suggested he think about marching with the Colt Cadets like his aunt did. After all, Justin had previously seen a field routine performed by the ISU band and commented how he would like to do something like that. Justin agreed to see what they had to offer, and in February he headed to Dubuque to check out the Colt Cadets. It was a no-commitment rehearsal that gave him a taste of what it would be like to be a member of the drum and bugle corp. After only a couple of practices, he was ready to make a commitment for the summer. He has since been traveling back to Dubuque on weekends for practices. But, when May 31 arrives, he will be gone for the summer until August 9. He’s admits he’s a little nervous, but he’s a lot excited. The Colt Cadets are made up of roughly 80 members, some as young as the fifth grade. Some already know how to play instruments or have color guard experience, while others learn through the Colt Cadets. All will receive more than 300 hours of professional instruction, travel in excess of 3,500 miles in 25 days to parades and competitions in the Midwest, and perform four memorized musical numbers to more than 75,000 fans. While it is a busy schedule to keep, the Colt Cadets also make sure there is some time off for the kids to briefly visit family. Since Dubuque is quite a drive from Eagle Grove, Justin will be staying with a host family to save on travel time and costs. This host family also has a child who has been a member of the Colts, so they are familiar with the schedules, challenges, and rewards of being part of the group. Knowing this couple has that experience makes Mark and Ann feel more at east that their son will be gone most of the summer and living with them instead. This doesn’t mean, however, that they won’t be seeing Justin. Quite the contrary. They plan on attending several of his performances including those in Dubuque, Waukee, and Forest City to mention just a few. In fact, Mark is planning on taking a week off to travel with the group as a parent volunteer - helping prepare meals, move equipment, driving, and more. As of right now, with the minutes ticking away until he begins his new adventure, Justin said he is most nervous about his first (in Wisconsin) and last (in Indianapolis in Colts Stadium for the Open Class World Championships) performances. He

With the retirement of long-time EMS Director Karla Thompson, the City of Eagle Grove needed a replacement, and now have one following action at Monday nights meeting. Janet Fuller will take over as the part-time director after being unanimously approved by the Council. She has been a part of the ambulance crew for nearly two years, and has both a medical care and secretarial skills background with most of that at her previous home in Illinois. She is the owner/operator of Rejuvenate Salon in Eagle Grove (look for a feature story on Fuller in an upcoming issue of the Eagle). The Council also approved, following a public hearing with no objections, Resolution 2014-13 for the budget amendment for the current fiscal year. City Clerk Susan Maier was present to break down the details of the amendment, which includes additional revenues of $134,500 due to sale of the former Armory building, closing out an old fund and TIF repayment. Councilperson Dennis Vandewater wants to see that money from Iowa Central, for the sale of the building, go to good use for all citizens. “I wish to go on record as saying that we need to be sure we use those funds, starting next year, for the betterment of the community,” said Vandewater. Additional expenses listed by Maier include $73,500 for public safety (includes wages, clothing and training for new officers, equipment and workman’s comp premiums), $55,000 for economic development (Blasi building and cleanup of junk properties) and $26,000 for culture and recreation (ball equipment, pool chemicals and valve replacement and Memorial Hall added expenses) as the three largest. According to Maier, there is no increase in tax levies in the proposed amendment. Any increase in expenditures will be met from the increased non-property tax revenues and cash balances not budgeted or considered in the current budget. “We had to use extra chemicals at the pool due to the extra water used because of pump problems,”

is most excited about marching, traveling, and making new friends. In addition, Justin is hoping to take away from this experience, personal growth as a musician - sharpening his trumpet-playing skills, as well as his marching abilities. Others will be traveling from all over the nation, even the world to gain take advantage of these same opportunities. Some come from Chicago, Arkansas, Florida, and even the Netherlands. “I decided to give (the Colt Cadets) a try because my dad said, ‘It will be great for you to be a part of something where everyone wants to be there, will work really hard everyday, and are committed 100 percent to succeed at their goals,’” said Justin. Mark said they are excited that Justin has this opportunity - to march with an organization that teaches responsibility and respect, and provides the opportunity to play in front of thousands of people. “What a neat thing to do. We’re really excited for him,” Mark said. For a complete schedule of the Colt Cadets and where Justin will be performing with them, visit their website at: http://colts.org/ cadets/2014Calendar.pdf. If you would like ticket information, you can contact Mark Sampson.

AT A GlAnce • Made up primarily of middle school and high school students. • Band/color guard experience is not required. • Rehearsals are held two or three Sunday afternoons during the school year beginning in Feb. • Summer rehearsals are typical held four days a week from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. • Fundraising opportunities are available through car washes, BINGO, raffle sales, and more. • Instruments and uniforms are included in fees. • The Colt Cadets are open to all interested youth.

Budget amendment also approved By leS hOuSer wrightcosports@gmail.com

explained Maier. “We also need to closely watch the water temperature (heaters) this summer. Our bill was high last year. We have also been replacing an expensive water valve every year. We are also going back to standard hand-operated flush toilets instead of auto-flush, which are more difficult and costly to maintain.” The Council approved a twoitem change order, as presented by Tim Moreau with Veenstra & Kimm, for the DD#94 project through the city. The approval includes a different type of asphalt binder, which will result in a per-squareyard deduction, and additional base rock for a new culvert. The net result of both is an additional $816.94 to the contract amount. The Council heard a brief report from Sarah Jensen on the plans for this year’s Summerfest on June 2829. She was pleased to announce that they have secured the 34th Army Rock Band, with Eagle Grove’s own Commander Kent Wesselink, as the opening band for Saturday night. “We’re very excited about this,” said Jensen. “They are able to play as they are in between missions and will use this as a training opportunity.” Other new events include Art in the Park, a Texting Competition for middle school students and Ron Mohr conducting tours of the downtown historical sites. In department reports, City Administrator Mike Boyd stated that he’s still waiting to hear on the ambulance grant request but has been told it still looks favorable. Mayor Sandra McGrath reminds residents that the STEP enforcement program is coming up again. “Be sure to use your seatbelts,” reminds McGrath. Public Works Director Robert Lunda stated that his guys are doing ongoing cold patching around town and have finished up with alley work. In other action the Council: -approved pay request #4 of $246,410 to McKiness Excavating, Inc. for work on the DD#94 project. Moreau told the Council that the contractor is progressing nicely; -approved a beer/liquor license for the Chamber of Commerce (Summerfest).

Correction

In last week’s Eagle there was a photo showing the rock pile at River Park in Goldfield for the rock arc rapids project. The sources of the rock were incorrectly stated. It should have said that 700-ton was donated by area farmers, with 300ton donated by Wright County. The Eagle apologizes for the error.

Roger A. Slater, 66, Eagle Grove

For whomever will call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13 Roger Alan Slater left this world to be with our Lord of Heaven on May 12, 2014, at the age of 66. Roger had been suffering for many, many years from emphysema/COPD, and had weathered several setbacks in the past, but always managed to rally. Roger was born in Eagle Grove, Iowa, on December 29, 1947, to Gwen Bates Slater and William Slater. He had four half brothers and sisters: Bonnie Adams, Harold Whistler, Don Whistler, and Shirley Whistler Bell. He was raised in Eagle Grove, and graduated from Eagle Grove High School in 1966, after which he joined the Air Force. He was stationed in Hawaii, where he was a Sargeant in charge of warehousing. Roger received an Honorable Discharge in 1972, and returned to Eagle Grove, where he worked at Eagle Mills, Fareway, and eventually was employed by the United States Postal System. Roger was a postal employee for 30 years, and enjoyed every moment of his career. Roger is survived by his wife, Joan Marie; three children; and seven grandchildren. They are: daughter, Amanda Slater Burnell, Michael Burnell, Krissy Rapp and Elizabeth Slater; Jonathan Slater, and wife, Rebekah, and children: Elijah and Chloe; Rachel Slater and daughters, Allison and Ashley. He tried to keep

in touch with his step-children and grandchildren, Tina Glammeier, and daughter, Savanna; David Casson, and wife, Amy, daughter Marah, and Jenine Sandnes, Elliott Blue Sandness and Simon Sandness. Roger was preceded in death by his parents, William Slater and Gwen Slater; half sister Shirley Whistler Bell; and half brother, Harold Whistler. Roger lived his life in the conviction that a Godly man demonstrates his love for the Lord in all he does and how he lives. He coached local girls’ softball and boys’ baseball teams, and attended many Bible studies throughout the years. He loved Oldies music and traditional gospel music, and could be heard singing along with his favorite groups. Roger taught senior high Sunday School at United

Roger Slater

Methodist Church for four years, and emphasized living a Christian life at home and school. He followed his favorite sports teams, the Cincinnati Reds, Dallas Cowboys, and Iowa State Cyclones, and owned one of the area’s largest magazine and memorabilia collections. Roger tried to give away as many magazines as he could to “good homes.” He also collected Civil War memorabilia, and gathered many books and tapes about this war that he could find. Roger enjoyed following Civil War re-enactments as long as he was able, and loved to talk war lore and listen to battlefield music. He is best known for his speedy delivery of the mail, his quiet sense of humor, and his sweet mannerisms. Those who knew Roger will miss him dearly, and will understand that he is walking a quiet path with God now, free of the disease that wracked his lungs and slowed him down. He has served as a role model and source of comfort and common sense to many young people and adults alike. Funeral services were held on Thursday, May 15, at 10:30 a.m. from Grace Evangelical Free Church in Eagle Grove with Pastor John Nett officiating. Burial waws in Rose Hill Cemetery, Eagle Grove. Foust Funeral Home of Eagle Grove was in charge of arrangements. www.foustfh.com

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc., would like to encourage the public to support the UDMO Surplus Food Shelf and your local food pantries with food and non-food donations, or monetary donations as well. It is May and school is getting close to ending for the summer and that means that children will be eating more meals at home! Summer is not always a time when people remember to donate to the UDMO Surplus Food Shelf or to their local food pantries usually it is during the Holiday seasons. The summer months are times when UDMO’s Surplus Food Shelf and your local food pantries need your help more than ever since children are not in school. UDMO asks you to please give generously to the UDMO Surplus Food Shelf and your local food pantries this summer! Contact your local Community Action Agency (UDMO) at (515) 448-3704 to find out how you can help. Working together is making a difference in feeding families and individuals in Wright County. Thank you, Mary Ohrtman UDMO Outreach Director

ATTENTION ALL EAGLES… Do you have a bucket list? I know a lot of people do. even I have a few things I would like to accomplish in my life. But how many of those things have you actually crossed off? One, two, maybe three? Now, today I’m not going to talk about bucket lists, but, I am going to talk about experience. “Experience?”, you might ask. Well, yes, I’m going to talk about experience. Having a bucket list is great, but is life really about crossing things off a list? No, life is made for experiencing all the wonderful things around you. Life isn’t about the things you can put on a resume, or check off on a list. Life is an accumulation of all the different experiences we have each and every day. Don’t live to cross things off of list, live to experience! — A message from The Nice Guy

Owners of Iowa Select Farms receive the Iowa State University Honorary Alumni Award

Jeff and Deb Hansen, founders and owners of Iowa Select Farms, recently received the Honorary Alumni Award from the Iowa State University Alumni Association. Iowa Select Farms, headquartered in Iowa Falls, Iowa, employs nearly 1,000 Iowans in 46 counties and is both the state’s largest pork producer and one of the most technologically and environmentally advanced producers in the nation. The Honorary Alumni Award is the highest honor given by Iowa State University through the ISU Alumni Association to individuals who have made significant contributions to the university, but are not graduates of Iowa State. “Although neither Jeff nor Deb Hansen graduated from Iowa State, they have served our institution as though it was their own,” said ISU President Steven Leath, as he presented the award to the Hansens on April 11 at the Alumni Association’s Distinguished Awards Celebration. The Hansens are transforming the educational experience for Iowa State students, Leath added, through their gifts to the Jeff Hansen/Iowa Select Farms Pork Industry Scholarship, their Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement scholarship, the Animal Science Judging Endowment Campaign, and the Jeff and Deb Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center, which was completed earlier this year. Iowa State, Leath said, also has benefited from the Hansens’ willingness to fund research, appear as guest speakers on campus, and hire Iowa State graduates. He also noted that the Hansens were instrumental in the re-establishment of Iowa Swine Days at ISU, plus they have opened up their farms for faculty to conduct research in state-of-the-art facilities. “Deb and I are deeply honored to become honorary alumni of Iowa State University,” Jeff Hansen said. “We will continue to support the university’s efforts to achieve its mission to create, share and apply knowledge to make Iowa and the world a better place.”

Jennifer’s Produce tidbits

anniv 50th Wedding Anniversary Card Shower for John & Dorothy Wilcox. 2501 Des Moines St., Apt. 401, Webster City, IA 50595

Welcome back to Produce Tidbits. I apologize for not having an article in the paper last week. I generally write the article on my day off (Thursday), but last week, I worked on my day off and completely forgot the article. Oops! This week I would like to talk a little about produce in general. If you have walked through our produce department recently, you have probably noticed that the soft fruits have arrived again. We are now currently carrying white flesh nectarines and peaches, yellow flesh nectarines and peaches, and also fresh apricots. These are all courtesy of our friends at Family Tree Farms from California. You might remember that last year I took a trip to California to tour their facility. This year we are lucky to be able to send another person from our Eagle Grove Fareway to California, which is Megan Feske. I am positive that she will also have a rewarding and enjoyable trip. I would like to talk about our “Best at Fresh” promise to our customers. I know that sometimes we fall a little short of that pledge, either by our personal error, or because of bad product supplied to us. Whatever way it happens, we want you to know that we strive for 100 percent customer satisfaction and we stand by that. If you have received a product that falls short of your expectations from either quality or flavor, just let us know and we will gladly replace that item or refund your money. I realize that sometimes people are hesitant to complain about a product, but if we are not made aware of a problem, then we can’t possibly fix it. If it is because of poor quality of something that we received from our warehouse, then we need to notify them of the problem, so that they can look into the supplier. In this day and age, the last thing that we want our customers to be doing is throwing money down the drain because of a bad product they received. Just let Chris, Trevor, or anyone from the produce department know, and we will make it right with you! That is all I have for this week. Have a Super Fantastic week and until next time, good-bye!

Fungicide use is not recommended as it is not completely effective, and will not eliminate mildew spores from the soil, which can remain and overwinter for several seasons. Remove and bag any infected plants, including roots, immediately. What to do? Select other shadeloving type plants to fill your containers and flower beds; be creative and try something new this year. Perhaps ageratum, coleus, or begonias—or ask a local Master Gardener for ideas on those less common bedding plants, such as Heliotrope, Torenia, or Alternanthera! Did you know? This disease only affects the common-type Impatiens (Impatiens walleriana). The New Guinea-type impatiens (Impatiens hawkeri) are not affected, and may be a good replacement choice.

horticulture hints: downy Mildew of impatiens – Buyer be aware! A “new” disease is on the horizon ~ and attacks one of the most popular annual plants sold for shade areas— the Impatiens. Downey Mildew, as the name implies, is a fungal type disease, and easily travels from plant to plant by spores. The spores are transferred by wind, from the soil by watering or rain, use of contaminated containers or equipment, or even by touching infected plants! This disease, which has been on the east coast now for a few years, hits greenhouses hard, as an entire crop can be wiped out in a matter of weeks! The disease was spotted in the Des Moines area in 2013—and will most likely make an appearance in our area soon. Healthy Impatiens plants can be affected in a short period of time. Symptoms include yellowing and slight curling of leaves, with white mildew on underside of leaves; then flowers and foliage drop off, leaving bare stems. Remove and bag any infected plants immediately.

Horticulture Hints: Browning of Evergreens By Yvonne McCormick ISU Extension Horticulturist

Eight grader Madison Gochanour (left) and seventh grader Desiree Pugh (right) are both members of the RBMS Concert Band.

When driving around town this spring, you may have noticed many evergreens with brown needles, brown needle tips or branches. One would naturally assume this to be winter injury due to the cold temperatures, but most likely the browning was caused by another type of winter injury–desiccation. Desiccation occurs when the leaves and needles of evergreens, which remain functional throughout the entire year, lose water due to transpiration. On those warm winter days, the plant becomes active, the lost water cannot be replaced, as when the ground is frozen, as there is no water available for the roots to take up, and needles brown and tissue death occurs. Research studies also suggest that desiccation alone does not cause browning of needles, but a combination of environmental stresses. Interaction of cold temperatures, with frequent freeze/ thaw cycles, and rapid cooling and thawing rates all play a part in causing winter injury.

A bicycle can’t stand alone; . . . it is two tired.

Winter injury is most commonly found on those portions of the plant which receive the most sunlight during the winter months, which explains why any “browning” or “burning” is usually noticed on the south or southwest side of the plant. What to do? Wait to prune out any browned areas from evergreens, as these branches may recover. To encourage your plant to produce new foliage, make certain the plant receives adequate moisture. Watch for growth of viable buds that may have escaped winter injury to produce new foliage. Did you know? The key to reducing this type of injury is to protect the evergreen foliage from temperature extremes. Avoid late summer pruning which will encourage tender new growth which is more susceptible to damage. Planting in sheltered locations, screening plants with burlap or snow fence in late fall can also help to prevent unsightly foliar browning.

Eagle golf team competes Eagle Grove sends Ryan Caquelin sixth at at NCC tourney, Class 2A five events to Webster City races sectional state track meet Grandgeorge low for his team BY LES HOUSER wrightcosports@gmail.com The North Central Conference golf tournament was held one day later, on Tuesday, May 13, at the Briggs Woods golf course south of Webster City. Clear Lake took the team title with a 318, followed by: Webster City 321, St. Edmond 333, Humboldt 336, Clarion-Goldfield 342, Algona 349, Iowa Falls-Alden 353, Bishop Garrigan 363, Hampton-Dumont 369 and Eagle Grove 385. Medalist was Trenton Sann of the Cowboys with rounds of 36-39 for a threeover par 75. Runner-up was Flattery of the Gaels with 76. All the top ten individuals also received a medal. For the Eagles, Jacob Grandgeorge fired rounds of 44 and 41 for an 85 total. Other counted scores were: Brian Yackle 48-48 for 96, Nathan Kastler 54-45 for 99 and Timmy Day 54-51 for 105. Other cards were submitted by Austin Griffin (55-58 for 113) and Alex Jensen (59-64 for 123). “The boys had a little bit of a rough day today,” said head coach Ryan Pedersen. “They didn’t golf their best, but again the conditions were not ideal and we were playing on a pretty tough course. There were some bright spots to take from this meet, and there are also some things that we will be glad to leave at Briggs Woods! I know the boys will rebound and get themselves ready for postseason play.” The season ended for the boys in purple and gold at the Class 2A sectional last Friday at Jewell. South

Hamilton won with a 302, followed in the top three by Clarion-Goldfield with 327 and Hampton-Dumont with 333. Both the Hawks and Cowboys advance as teams to the district round this Friday. Braxton Risetter of the Hawks was medalist with a 70, with teammate Trevor Ullestad the runner-up with 72. For the Eagles, it was Grandgeorge leading the way with rounds of 3943 for an 82 total. He was followed in counted scores by Griffin (49-40 for 89), Kastler (47-43 for 90) and Yackle (51-42 for 93). Other rounds were played by Day (95) and Jensen (99). “The boys played well for the most part,” said Pedersen. “The weather conditions weren’t too bad and the course was in great shape. A couple of the boys closed out their careers with respectable days. Austin finished with his best round of the year, and Timmy was battling an illness all day long and still managed to shoot a 95. I thought both of them played very well, and I know the team will definitely miss them next season. Jacob played very well, and if not for a couple of holes I think both he and I felt he could have advanced to districts. Alex and Nathan shot their lowest scores this year, and I was very proud of their effort. Brian struggled a little over the front nine, but came back to improve by nine strokes in the second round. I know the boys that will be returning next season will do whatever it takes to be more successful.”

Lady Eagles compete at NCC golf meet Katie Blasi low for team BY LES HOUSER wrightcosports@gmail.com Last Tuesday at Iowa Falls, the Eagle Grove girls golf team competed at the North Central Conference meet at the Meadow Hills course. The meet was postponed from Monday. Bishop Garrigan won with a 376 total, taking the team title by just a four-stroke margin over Clear Lake with 380. The rest finished like this: Humboldt 387, Clarion-Goldfield 388, Algona 405, Webster City 407, St. Edmond 412, Eagle Grove 413,

Iowa Falls-Alden 438 and HamptonDumont 457. Katie Blasi shot the low score for the Lady Eagles, carding a 49 on the front nine and a 47 on the back nine for a total of 96. She was followed in counting scores by Sam Kruckenberg (50-52 for 102), Desira Shivers (45-60 for 105) and Brianna Allen (51-59 for 110). Other varsity rounds were played by Tori Axtell (59-60 for 119) and Brandi Osborn (67-57 for 124).

The ultimate combination for year-round comfort.

BY LES HOUSER wrightcosports@gmail.com Tiffany Christensen, Jana Willard and Josh Morris, along with the girls distance medley relay, will all be representing the school at the State Track & Field Meet this week at Drake Stadium following the 2A qualifier held last Thursday in Manson. Christensen was a double winner, picking up both the 800 and 1500 events to receive an automatic berth in those. The senior also anchored the distance med foursome to first place in 4:31.67, joining Madison Anderson, Aja Bell and Sam Helmke in that race. Jana Willard also advanced in the 3000 after taking second place. The Eagle boys will also be represented by senior Josh Morris in the 400 hurdles, who moves on by the same method as above. “The night was not the best conditions to compete in, but we did a lot better with it than I thought,” said boys coach Ben Demuth. “I think that was because we were more mentally prepared after the conference meet. We had several personal bests (PB’s) on the night, which was our focus all week long. We knew that qualifying was going to be tough for us and it was. However, if we could compete and do our best that was all I could ask for as a coach. We had 12 entries achieve PB’s for the night, and these were in some events that possibly could have made it to state based on time. So we gave it everything we had, but just came up a bit short overall.” The highlight that stands out for Demuth was Morris placing third in the 400 hurdles to make state based on his time class-wide. “He was in the lead coming into the last two sets of hurdles, but a little bobble at the end cost him his place,” said the head coach. “We didn’t know until late Friday night that he had made it, and the coaches and I were so pleased. I feel he could medal, but it will take some work and focus from him. He has been the heart and soul of our team this year, so we will just have to wait and see.” Other standout efforts for the night include Carter Asche (800) chopping three seconds off his time, Gage Behnkendorf (3200) dropping a huge 36 seconds and the performance of several field event athletes. “Carter looked real strong, and has been trying to come back from mono at the start of the season, so this was a real boost for him heading into the offseason,” said Demuth. “Gage is showing some great gains and I expect big things from him in the future in both track and cross country. I was happy to see our field events have good nights in difficult conditions. Dylan Thielen threw a PB in the shot, and Brian Gonzalez did the same to place in the long jump. Although he didn’t place, Darin Grandgeorge had a great night jumping and Tyler Vorrie made the finals in discus. Tyler came up short in his goal of qualifying, but

his growth the past three weeks in this event was tremendous so I was very happy for him.” The coach also felt his relay teams did well, with all of them posting PB’s for the season. “They all ran well, and everything we had worked on all season showed up,” said Demuth. “However, as I said before we just did not have enough in the end for the big horses in the meet. The 4x2 was close to qualifying, as the fourth place team in our district made it and we were fifth by less than half a second. That is tough, but they are a good group of guys and did all they could in the wind and cold. I am proud of their efforts.” Results-Lady Eagles at Manson 2A qualifier Long jump-Eisentrager, 14’ 7.5” (9th); Boatner, 12’ 7.5” (16th) Discus-Martin, 93’ 9” (8th); Boyer, 83’ 5” (13th) Shot out-Mork, 21’ 5.5” (18th) 3000-Willard, 11:35.54 (2nd) 100 dash-Axtell, 16.31 (22nd); Quintus, 17.30 (23rd) Distance med relay-4:31.67 (1st) Madison Anderson, Aja Bell, Sam Helmke, Tiffany Christensen 400 dash-Hammitt, 1:17.91 (21st) 4x2-1:59.10 (10th) Anderson, Sunde, Rethman, Simons 110 hurdles-Axtell, 21.46 (18th) 800-Christensen, 2:29.95 (1st); Simons, 2:58.53 (16th) 200 dash-Quintus, 36.81 (21st) Sprint med relay-2:02.02 (7th) Anderson, Bell, Eisentrager, Helmke 1500-Christensen, 5:16.39 (1st); Willard, 5:27.37 (3rd) 4x1-1:00.11 (10th) Pickering, Hammitt, Boatner, Eisentrager 4x4-4:24.75 (4th) Helmke, Rethman, Sunde, Christensen Results-Eagles at Manson 2A qualifier Shot put-Thielen, 42’ 5.5” (4th); Jorgensen, 35’ 3.25” (18th) Discus-Vorrie, 122’ 7” (4th) High jump-no entries cleared opening height Long jump-Gonzalez, 18’ 7.5” (7th); Grandgeorge, 17’ 6.5” (11th) 3200-Ploeger, 11:02.83 (7th); Behnkendorf, 11:42.22 (12th) 4x8-9:13.42 (8th) Pickering, Maier, Wesselink, Asche Shuttle hurdle relay-1:04.91 (6th) Morris, Weber, Thielen, Omvig 100 dash-Shivers, 12.31 (6th); Pacheco, 12.32 (7th) 400 dash-Calderon, 57.72 (9th) 4x2-1:35.24 (5th) Weber, Morris, Shivers, Pacheco 110 hurdles-Thielen, 19.53 (17th); Toillion, 20.93 (20th) 1600-Stephas, 5:11.94 (8th); Ploeger, 5:13.83 (10th) 200 dash-Pacheco, 24.15 (4th); Shivers, 24.84 (5th) 400 hurdles-Morris, 57.65 (3rd); Toillion, 1:05.88 (19th) Distance med relay-4:08.11 (10th) Gonzalez, Schope, Stephas, Maier 800-Pickering, 2:12.78 (8th); Asche, 2:14.25 (10th) 4x1-47.44 (9th) Gonzalez, Weber, Huse, Shivers 4x4-3:38.5 (5th) Pacheco, Morris, Schope, Thielen

By design

Art isn’t all about paint and clay. As Tori Axtell (left) and Cole Beecher (center and right) show, art is about creating whatever you can imagine with whatever materials you can get your hands on. The two created the above masterpieces recently in Dave Morgan’s Tech Class at Eagle Grove High School. Axtell’s is a welded silverware flowers and container - an Arc welding project. Beecher (center photo) welded John Deere inspired tractor out of nails, screws, nuts, washers, and bolts. In woods class (right photo) he made a utility box holder to hold all of his fishing tackle boxes. Photos provided

The Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau is reminding the motoring public during May 19 – June 1, Iowa law enforcement agencies will be participating in the National “Click It or Ticket” campaign. In an attempt to save lives and reduce serious injury crashes, local, county, and state enforcement officers will be out in force making sure everyone is buckled up. Sergeant Scott Bright, Public Information Officer for the Iowa Department of Public Safety, advises that “The two seconds it takes to buckle up increases your odds by nearly 50 percent of surviving a crash. There is nothing so simple or easy that can make such a life saving difference. During 2013, there were 317 fatalities in Iowa, a record low, but still too many needless deaths. We are continually looking for ways to make a difference,” says Noble. Last year, during the Memorial Day holiday, Iowa had three traffic fatalities, two of which were alcohol related. During the sTEPenforcement wave, there were 31,480 total traffic violations, including 12,450 speed, 2,630 seat belt and 530 OWI stops. The Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau continues to stress to the motoring public the importance of buckling up, slowing down, and the need to drive sober to increase the odds of preventing or at least surviving a crash. Buckle up, be safe and enjoy your Memorial Day holiday. The next sTEP enforcement event will be July 1st – 7th.
