Member FDIC

1. I grew up on a farm near Rockwell and lived there 36 years, where I was involved in our farm operations. Following high school graduation, I received my Associates Degree from NIACC and later graduated from Buena Vista University. I am executive director of two non-proÀts, the Community Kitchen of North Iowa and Mason City Meals on Wheels. I have two children, four grandchildren and reside in Mason City with my husband Jim. 2. In 2002, I ran in a special election to Àll a vacant Iowa Senate seat and have been fortunate to have been re-elected three times. I serve as Chairperson of the Human Resources Committee. I have always been involved with various volunteer boards, commissions, helping agencies, and church organizations, such as the Buena Vista University Alumni Board, Francis Lauer Youth Services, Kinney Pioneer Museum and River City Sunrise Rotary. 3. A) Economic growth – My emphasis in expanding job creation and economic growth is helping Iowa Àrms, small businesses and entrepreneurs to expand their operations and workforces. I support programs which encourage investment in a wide range of companies to grow and mature, including renewable energy Àrms and agri-businesses. To underpin those priorities, I have consistently supported balanced state budgets which do not raise taxes. Additionally, I have advocated for wise investments of current state resources in infrastructure improvements and increased trade and tourism activities. My efforts have always been to improve the lives of working Iowans. B) Education opportunity/job training – To address education issues I have supported legislation

and policies, for example, to expand training programs to help Iowans qualify to Àll good-paying jobs at local businesses. I support pre-school education to give our youngest Iowans a big boost prior to kindergarten. In the Iowa Senate we have sponsored rational increases in basic funding for K-12 education, which can beneÀt all schools, including those in our rural areas. As a community college graduate, I know their value to students and have supported funding for their programs, especially vocational and technical training C) Health care – I have long advocated for programs which improve the health care and safety of Iowans. These efforts encompass support for local Emergency Management Services, promoting expanded local public health programs to help citizens maintain their health, and working to ensure access. I also supported programs which provide help for families and individuals to remain as independent as possible and programs which provide support for reliable in-home services for our seniors and people with a disability. 4. One of the important attributes I think any elected person should have is to be a good, conscientious listener.

In my personal and public life, I have always tried to be accessible to varied points of view on the subject under consideration. I believe good ideas don·t come with party labels and my record of bipartisan cooperation is a proud accomplishment, detailed over many votes during my time in the Iowa Senate. 5. I have been privileged to help pass legislation designed to beneÀt Iowans in many areas – education, economic growth, health care services, honoring military veterans, making communities safer. I am dedicated to honest representation for my constituents, and making Iowa a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I am asking the men and women of Senate District 27 for their support and votes so I can continue serving them. 6. I am not completely familiar with their views, so it is difÀcult to respond to that question. I can promise the voters our campaign will be issue-oriented, and fair. As we go through this year, I will continue my policy of meeting with constituents and consider their thoughts, ideas and comments. My goal has always been to make a great state better, and I will continue to work with the voters toward that objective.

Dietz, Junker vying for GOP nomination in Senate District 27


11. I have h li d in i the h current SenS lived ate District 27 for basically all of my life. My family lived in Butler County when I was born, and I have spent a total of about two years residing outside the current district. I currently live in Hampton with my wife, Alexis, and we are raising our three children here. My current occupation is Program Director at KLMJ Radio in Hampton. 2. In November 2011, I was elected as Mayor of Hampton. During my term as mayor, I also served as a member of the Iowa League of Cities Legislative Policy Committee for one year. As a member of that committee, I advocated for more local control and pushed for stronger local decision-making language in the League·s annual legislative priorities. My term on that committee ended when I left ofÀce as mayor at the end of 2013. 3. A) DeÀning life as beginning at conception. This is an issue that not only affects our district and our state, but affects our nation. The argument against deÀning life at conception has become harder to make as technological advancements in pre-natal care make the evidence more and more clear that a living individual exists in the womb from the time that life is conceived, and as such deserves the same legal right-to-life as every other human being. B) Return as many decision-making powers as possible to home districts/municipalities. From the DOT to the EPA, education to law

enforcement, and everywhere in between. I believe we need to empower local ofÀcials to do what·s best for their local areas, and end the practice of baiting smaller government entities to enact desired policies with Àscal promises. We have far too many decisions made in Washington, D.C., by unelected bureaucrats and regulators that should be made in Des Moines, and likewise too many decisions made in Des Moines that should be made at the local level. C) Simplify the Iowa tax code. Texas, Florida and South Dakota are among states that allow their citizens to keep every penny of their income. With the exception of Missouri, each of our border states boast fewer tax brackets. Illinois – Áat income tax; South Dakota – no income tax. Our state has done well to improve economically; however, if we want to take those improvements to the next level, I believe we must identify ways to grow our population, and creating a more hospitable tax environment for our residents could help us reach that goal. 4. I have spent the past few years getting to know how government works, and the proper roles of each level of government. This has also given me the opportunity to see why there is disconnect between government ofÀcials, and the public which they serve. I would bring a positive attitude, experience in problem solving and negotiations, as well as a willingness to work with my colleagues to address these issues and inefÀciencies to better serve Iowans. 5. I have witnessed the highs and lows of the economy in the past few years in a very personal way. This has given me the opportunity to have a wide range of experiences in a small amount of time that have

1. Provide information on your background: how long you’ve lived in the area, family, current job, etc. 2. Have you ever held elected of¿ce or been involved with any type of committee or board? If so, please list them and include your tenure. 3. What three issues affecting Iowa or District 27 are your Top 3 priorities? 4. What attributes or skills would you bring to the Iowa Senate? 5. What distinguishes you from your Republican primary opponent? 6. Why are you running? 7.

allowed me to identify with a large cross-section of the population in this district, and build relationships here and across the state that will allow me to be successful. 6. We have to create a better environment for Iowa·s youth to stay here. We want our students to build their lives here after their education, and be an inviting place for families to move here, keep what they earn, and build from their success. I am running to be part of a team that helps new growth Ànd its way to our rural areas to create vibrant, diversiÀed local economies in small towns and agriculture-rich communities. 7. I think it·s important to note that no one has been elected to serve this district since the lines were re-drawn after the 2010 census. Voters in this new district will have to choose the person who best represents their views concerning state government. Having grown up in this new district, and currently raising my family here, I feel like I have the qualiÀcations and philosophies that best align with the voters of Senate District 27.

1. I have lived in Allison since 1978, and I was raised in Parkersburg. I am self-employed as a real estate agent. I also work parttime for the Allison Care Center driving residents to and from appointments. I have 33 years in law enforcement as Butler County Sheriff and U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Iowa. I am married, and my wife Denise and I have Àve children and Àve grandchildren. 2. I was elected to six terms as Butler County Sheriff. I was elected and served on the Allison City Council. I am a member of the Trinity Reformed Church, where I have served as an elder and deacon. I served on the board of directors for 13 years and as president of the Iowa State Sheriff·s and Deputies Association. I am a member of the Allison AmVets. 3. A) Getting control of schools back to the local school boards and eliminating the Com-

mon Core requirement. When I went to school, Iowa was in the Top 3 states in education. Iowa students were sought after because of their education. As soon as education moved away from local control, students learned less and the costs have skyrocketed. Instead of trying to re-invent education, why not go back to what worked? I would be in favor of a voucher program for parents to decide where they want to send their children to school. B) Jobs in this state. We need to change our tax structure to attract business and to keep the businesses that are in Iowa. With a smaller simpler tax structure, we can attract new business without government subsidies. To go along with changing our tax structure, we need to change and/or eliminate state agency regulations. We need to make sure these regulations are for protection of our state and not a political agenda. C) Get our state away from federal government money and control. We see the problems and never-ending costs our state is having with Obamacare and with what happened to our education system with No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top. EPA rules passed down to the DNR are costing property payers millions of dollars. 4. I have worked in local government, county government and


federal f d l government. I hhave ddealt l with the laws that the legislature makes. I think that puts me in a better position to be part of the legislation process. I know that government cannot do everything for everybody. 5. Age and gray hair. 6. I decided to run because I see government doing too much. When our government has too much control we lose our liberty and freedom to make our own choices. Government stiÁes our desire to work and achieve for our families. People become dependent on government for our basic needs. We let government tax us to pay for things government should not be doing. We lose our God-given rights because we let government make decisions for us. 7. She is for more government, and I see too much government as the problem. She does what the Democratic leadership of the Senate and Mike Gronstal want. What good is rank and experience if you vote with the Democratic Party leadership and Gronstal? I will do what is best for the people in the 27th District, not what best for the party. I will help get jobs and work to the 27th District and not more taxes.

I·ve served on committees and state- and national-level leadership positions with the Franklin County Farm Bureau since the late-1970s. I·m also on the board and various committees with Iowa State Snowmobile Association, and served two years as president. I was appointed to the Franklin County Conservation Board during development of the Rolling Prairie Trail and currently serve as president. We worked hard to obtain spe-

3. The ongoing challenges I see facing our county are the maintenance and improvement of the roads, and the funding to do so. The unfunded mandates coming down from the state and federal governments are a concern that will face the county in the future. I also want to focus on providing an attractive environment to draw business investment to the county, and continue to encourage our young people to come back to Franklin County. 4. With my background of participation on various boards, I am very familiar with working with others. I·m willing to consider all sides of an issue before making a decision.

with on the conservation board. The Rolling Prairie Trail and Robinson property are both assets to our community and warrant further support. The joint community law enforcement/communication center has been a project that has consumed much of the board·s time the last several years. I·d also like to get the public more involved and aware of the road maintenance and bridge replacement process. 6. I feel that I know this county well from raising my sons here, patrolling the roads, and working with many of its citizens over the years. I will bring fresh views and thoughts to the board. I·m not out to reinvent the wheel, just to put fresh grease on the axle.

1. I·m Jerry Plagge, District II Supervisor, raised on a family farm near Latimer. Most of my working career has been in Franklin County. Family: wife Jeanne, four children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Education: Franklin Consolidated; Yankton College – BA, Masters Hours. Career: Executive Director of Four-County Community Action Agency, farmer, business owner/ operator, realtor. Working with community development, I·ve developed strong planning and management skills which serve me in setting and obtaining goals for Franklin County. 2. I serve or have served on the following boards: Latimer Council, seven years; Latimer Mayor, nine years; Latim-

er Development, 32 years (Charter Member/Chairman); Cub Cadet Childcare, two years; Immanuel United Church of Christ, three years (treasurer); Franklin County Supervisor, 12 years; Franklin County Development, 14 years (past chair); North Iowa Community Action, 12 years (vice chair); North & Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center, 12 years; North Iowa Vocational Center, 12 years (chair/vice chair); Republican Central Committee, 16 years; and State Vocational Rehabilitation, four years. 3. The main issues facing Franklin County: Economic development – developing new tax base and jobs; bridge and culvert replacement and an expanded road rock program; continue to expand Franklin County·s leadership role in the region and state; and continuing to use conservative principles in county Ànancing and expansion Franklin County needs to work hard at preserving a strong leadership presence even when budgets become constrained. 4. I believe that my many years and types of experience serve me well in making decisions that affect Franklin County residents. I am a Àscal conservative, but am willing to spend needed funds when the results of the action are truly beneÀcial to the Franklin County


taxpayers. I bbelieve li iit iis very iimportant to keep abreast of the trends in business and agriculture so that we can anticipate tax revenues in the future. 5. One project I would like to see completed is the transfer of personnel and implementation of the new dispatch and holding facility at the Franklin County Law Enforcement Center. I would also like to address the space needs at the Community Resource Center. OfÀce space will probably be needed, as well as a permanent home for the Franklin County Food Pantry. 6. I am seeking re-election because I feel I still have knowledge that I can contribute to my county. My health allows me to seek another term, and I truly enjoy serving. I would like to help direct the positive beneÀts from projects like the wind farms and the new tax base it has created. Also, I·d like to continue my involvement with Franklin County Development and its strides in business and industrial development in the business park.

for this role. It too was a fast-paced and constantly changing environment in which I served the public. 4. My goal is to offer as many services as possible in Franklin County. I·m currently training to become a motorcycle examiner and will soon start performing drive tests locally. I continue to search for ways to conduct business as quickly and easily as possible. I have already done this by organizing the ofÀce to improve workÁow, utilizing technology, cross-training staff and participating on a committee to improve the treasurers· association award-winning website.

Summer is here – get out and enjoy Franklin County! With the Memorial Day weekend behind us, we can now shift our sights to the unofÀcial start of the summer season. Things are green again, farmers are Ànishing up in the Àelds, and temperatures are starting to stay consistently warm. Early summertime in Iowa certainly isn·t a bad place to be. Franklin County has a lot offer both guests and residents alike during the next three months. From music to town festivals to the county fair, there·s sure to be something going on no matter the week this summer. One of the more symbolic events marking the start to the season is Tuesday on the Town in downtown Hampton. The local staple boasts music, food and other events in beautiful Band Shell Park every Tuesday evening throughout June. Each Tuesday on the Town showcases one Nashville recording artist for an hour-long performance underneath Hampton·s historic band shell. The world famous Hampton Municipal Band takes center stage afterwards for a performance that·s sure to please guests of all ages. Of course, that·s just the beginning. The Franklin County Fair provides a mid-summer break for area residents with its music, shows and other attractions. Two concerts, various races featuring vehicles of all kinds, and the ever-popular rodeo highlight the 2014 lineup. Good food and animals are all added bonuses at the fair, as are the many rides and historic exhibits. It·s certainly an event to look forward to. If that·s not enough for you, various town celebrations throughout Franklin County Àll weekend schedules during the entire summer. Each offers its own unique opportunities for fun no matter the size or city. It·s always great to catch a parade and admire all the interesting Áoats and cool cars, and it·s equally fun watching all the youngsters dart about for candy. In Hampton, Summerfest is poised to be another fun-Àll weekend in 2014. The event will be jampacked with music at Band Shell Park in addition to other crowd-pleasing favorites. Those are just a few of the many events planned here in Franklin County this summer. If crowded celebrations aren·t your cup of tea, there·s plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs in the Great Outdoors. Our county has plenty of parks and recreational areas available at our disposal like Beeds Lake, the Rolling Prairie Trail and Maynes Grove in addition to all the others. You can never be too busy to head out to a park for some fresh air or escape the ofÀce on a beautiful day to do some Àshing. As you can probably tell, there·s no reason to stay cooped up inside the house during the next three months. Get out and enjoy Franklin County and all its communities during the summer. If these events are mere appetizers for you, many other regional celebrations only add to the many options available for a fun-Àlled weekend in north central Iowa. Get out and enjoy this weather while you can – before we know it, we·ll be griping about how hot and muggy it is. Have a great summer!

Correction In the May 14 Chronicle, a photo of Iowa Senator Amanda Ragan was accidentally printed with Iowa House Majority Leader Linda Upmeyer·s column titled “85th General Assembly is complete.” The photo should have been Upmeyer. The Chronicle regrets the error.


Heidenwirth a man of integrity and honesty, says Dumont couple Letter to the editor: As we prepare to vote in the June 3 primary, we can·t help but think back to the nightmare that began for us with the Butler County Supervisors beginning in 2007. The supervisors sold our fouracre abandoned gravel pit located on our century farm to Michael Witte, notifying all adjoining property owners of the sale but us! This transaction was completed against the ad-

vice of the Butler County Attorney. Long story short, the case went to the Appellate Supreme Court of Iowa and the Supreme Court returned our land back to us. “Previous Supervisor” John Zimmerman was a major part of this transaction and to this day, we have never been given an answer why this “under the table” transaction was completed, especially against the advice of the Butler County Attorney. When it comes to the June 3 pri-

mary, we are voting for a man of integrity, Tom Heidenwirth. We would ask that you give Tom your vote. He has done a great job the past four years as supervisor and will continue to represent Butler County as a man of professional integrity and honesty. Thank you. Carter and Paige Seidel 17447 Forest Ave. Dumont

Racial discrimination more than just a 21st Century problem Letter to the editor: I am of Irish decent. My people were not welcomed in the United States late in the 19th century and into the 20th century. My people were accused of taking jobs from those, who by birthright were, U.S. citizens. Of course much of the employment opportunities that were offered were jobs that others felt were beneath them. My people were even looked at as no more than an animal. We were looked at with distaste; as something less; and not to be trusted. Most of the Irish immigrants were poor. Very poor. What they found along with the discrimination, the poverty and the lack of jobs made them realize that the streets in America were not paved in gold as they had been told. However, they did Ànd something sacred here. It was the gift of hope they had lost in their home country. I would like to think that my ancestors all came to the United States legally and with proper paperwork. But the truth is that I come from a rough family of Irish people and I simply don·t know that my people came in through Ellis Island or circumvented Ellis Island with a lifeboat stolen from the ship that brought them here; then docking at a pier in a shipyard where they hoped to work one day. Many people have come to America illegally, and while I can·t condone that, I understand why. Many years ago I remember looking at a picture of a beautiful threeyear-old girl. She was standing in the doorway of her home, which was a shanty with a dirt Áoor and a piece of fabric for the only door. I know in my heart that if she had been my daughter, I would have done anything to give her an opportunity to live a better life, no matter how I had to make it happen. That little girl is now a very successful citizen of the United States of America. The sad reality is that there has

always been unhappy and unfulÀlled people who want to put others down rather than to help lift them up. Somehow it satisÀes their own yearning to explain their own life. One cannot be successful or bring goodness to the world by attacking people who have less but are doing their best. The Irish were called lazy, drunkards, free loaders, beggars, dishonest and everything else negative they could be labeled. And for many many an Irishman, the labels Àt. People don·t categorize the Irish so much anymore. There is new blood to put down. America has not changed much. The good news is each individual can look for and Ànd a way to quietly lift someone or some family up. We can have a real impact on that greatest gift of hope by allowing our inner love and peace to show to others. The joy of doing something good on your own always feels better than the act of afÀxing blame or pushing someone down so you can feel superior. What can you do to help someone you may know only very little or not at all? How can we take a small but active part in their success story? The answer is simple. “Anything. Just do something good.” Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Thank God my ancestors came to this country. We would be a different country today without the likes of John Kennedy, Walt Disney, John Wayne, Joe Biden, Henry Ford, Ronald Reagan and many more. We have also been lifted up by the talents of Col. Manuel J. Fernandez who few 125 combat missions in the Korean War; Ellen Ochoa, whose Àrst of four shuttle missions was in 1991; Luiz Walter Alvarez, 1968, for discoveries about subatomic particles. Later, he and his son proposed the now-accepted theory that the mass dinosaur extinction was caused

by a meteor impact. And how about Geraldo Rivera; Joan Baez and more? There is a darkness in us all that can pull us down no matter how rich or poor we might be. There is a darkness within us that can bring misunderstanding, hate and prejudice to the surface. The attitude of, “I am better than them!” The truth is God loves us all equally. There is also a light within each of us that can overcome that darkness and cause us to look for little ways we can bring light to others refreshing their hope that what they are doing will make a difference in the lives of their children and grandchildren. I believe that has always been the real focus of every family who ever came to America. The next generation was the gold; the next generation was the greatest hope. The gift of hope is passed from one person to another and then to another. It is a gift that calls for so little but has the power to last forever. I do not have the answer for the huge challenges of today. I only know that small gestures of kindness bring us all closer together. I believe small acts of kindness will lift people above the criticism, the hate and the discrimination. And I believe that by the power of Almighty God – someday we shall all be one. Be assured, however, that in the future there will always be chances to put a new group of people down rather than to lift them up. The pecking order has always been a part of society. I just hope we can use our power of choice wisely. We can choose to love rather than hate; we can show kindness rather than disregard. We cannot be a Christian if we have hate in our hearts Love does and will conquer all. Pastor John Byrne First Congregational UCC Hampton

Limiting speech is dangerous, says Hampton woman Letter to the editor: I would like to comment on Karen Suter·s letter and the other letters in response to her letter. We should be able to write a letter to the editor without calling each other names or making derogatory statements about each other as small-minded, insensitive, ignorant, racist and narrow-minded. We all need to respect each other·s opinions. We should not be silenced because of a difference of opinion. I do not know Mrs. Suter, but I do not think it is fair to call her names, as it makes you the same as what you are claiming she is. I praise the Hampton Chronicle for printing all your letters. I am dismayed that one individual stated

that the Hampton Chronicle should not have published Karen·s letter because she disagreed with it. What if it was your letter they would not print? My gosh, I don·t think you mean that statement. You yourself said diversity is good. This is America, and to suppress one·s speech is dangerous. We have God·s laws and our government·s laws to keep order in our lives and country. Until the laws are changed, our government must continue to enforce all laws and not just pick and choose the ones they want to enforce. I did not see anywhere in Karen·s letter she wrote Hispanics. I read “stopping people.” No one should be in our country unless they are here legally and obeying our laws.

Stiff Ànes should be levied against individuals that are in our country illegally and they should be deported. Stiff Ànes should also be levied against the corporations and their CEO·s who knowingly hire and exploit people who are in the United States illegally for their cheap labor. Banning words or our right to speak greatly disturbs me. Everyone, please remember our First Amendment and do not suppress each other·s speech, but show respect and welcome it as you stated “diversity.” Alyce Hugeback 621 Third Avenue SW Hampton

Well, the 2013-14 television season is just about done wrapping up. That means it·s time to go over the hits and misses from this year·s new offerings. • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nobody was more excited about this television take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe than I was. But I have to admit, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did not have the best of starts. The show struggled to Ànd a balance between the espionage nature of its source material, the super hero fantasy of its movie counterparts, and the family friendliness of ABC. However, just when all hope seemed lost, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” happened and we discovered that the show was just biding its time for the movie tie-in episode that let them end on a high note. I won·t say it·s a great show yet, but I have a lot more hope for it now than I did earlier. • Almost Human Remember a decade ago when Fox took a promising sci-À show, aired the episodes out of order, and then canceled it before it could resolve any of the plotlines it had established? You·d think I·d learn my lesson, but no, I let myself get attached to “Almost Human” and Fox did the same thing to it that it did to “FireÁy.” Everybody on that show deserved better than what they got and Fox needs to stop playing with my emotions. “MasterChef Junior” has already been given a third season and this gets canceled? It·s a crime. • Brooklyn Nine-Nine “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has the rare distinction of being a sitcom that still managed to grab my attention. I don·t watch a lot of half-hour comedies, but SNL·s Andy Samberg and the rest of the ensemble cast has put together the funniest show I·ve seen in a long time. Every character has their own hilarious Áaws and plays them perfectly. • Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey Taking up the reigns of Carl Sagan·s 1980 show, Neil deGrasse Tyson brings science to primetime. A bold move for an age where people seem all too willing to revel in their own ignorance. This is a great show not only for its science, but its history as well. After the Àrst episode I was afraid the series would be nothing but recaps of all the things we learned in middle school, but it goes signiÀcantly deeper than the stories of Newton and Galileo. For the Àrst time in a long time, I was excited about what I will learn next. • Dracula As big a fan of Dracula as I am, I admit I barely made it through the Àrst episode before writing off this disaster. I don·t know what I was expecting, but it wasn·t Dracula sporting a bad southern accent while astounding Victorian London with the marvels of electricity. You had one shot, NBC, and you blew it. This abomination is going back into the grave and it·ll be years before another Dracula show rises up again. • Once Upon A Time In Wonderland This spin-off from “Once Upon A Time” was actually intended to be a mid-season Àll-in while its parent show was on hiatus. The show instead got promoted to a full 13-episode season and a timeslot of its very own. It was a decent show, but one season of Wonderland is all we will be getting. At least this one was given a chance to wrap everything up. • The Originals I didn·t have much in the way of expectations when it came to this spin-off of “The Vampire Diaries,” but by the end of its Àrst season it had won me over with its supernatural politics and constantly shifting relationships between characters. Plus, watching Joseph Morgan dance between good and evil as Niklaus rarely gets old. Not many can project such deathly threatening anger like he can, a rare trait in a protagonist. • Sleepy Hollow “Sleepy Hollow” managed to win me over in spite of its infuriating ignorance about the difference between a sheriff·s department and a police department. Riding almost entirely on the charm of Tom Mison playing the man-out-of-time, Ichabod Crane, “Sleepy Hollow” managed to keep me interested long enough to build a fairly compelling alternate American History where George Washington wasn·t just the leader of the Revolution, but a commander in the war between good and evil. Good stuff. Travis Fischer is a news writer for Mid-America Publishing.




Upmeyer lone candidate in Iowa House District 54 2. I was Àrst elected to the Iowa House in 2002. After coming into the majority in 2010, I was elected by my peers to serve as the House Majority Leader. Prior to this, I served as the House Republican Whip and Chair of the House Human Resources Committee.


1 I grew up on the 1. h ffamily il ffarm in Garner and graduated from Garner High School in 1970. Following high school, I attended NIACC and the University of Iowa, where I received my BS in Nursing. I received my Master·s in Nursing from Drake University. I am a certiÀed family nurse practitioner and my husband, Doug, and I continue to farm. Doug and I have Àve children and four grandchildren.


3. A) Growing Iowa jobs – I want to promote job creation by increasing access to apprenticeships and worker training in Iowa, as well as investing in our children·s education. We should continue to reduce the regulatory burden on Iowa businesses and provide incentives for job creation. I will also remain focused on stopping legislation that would make it harder to create jobs in our state. B) Providing predictability

and certainty to Iowans through responsible budgeting – Since coming into the majority in 2010, we have been able to reverse years of poor spending habits by sticking to our core budgeting principles of not spending more than we take in, not using onetime revenue for ongoing expenses, not intentionally underfunding promises made to Iowans, and returning the overpayment of tax dollars to Iowa·s taxpayers. We have now had four-straight years of spending less than we take in and retired approximately $200 million in debt early. C) Protecting the family budget – By responsibly controlling state spending and while funding the priorities of Iowans, we now have the ability to cut taxes and return more of your hard-earned money to you, the hardworking taxpayers of Iowa.

me bring a real world perspective to the State Legislature. 5. I am running for re-election because I absolutely love this state. While we·ve made great strides in lowering Iowans· tax bills and putting Iowans back to work, there is still much work to be done to move our state forward and protect Iowans from the overreach of government.

portant thing for me is that there was compromise that brought things to the middle. It¡s a good solution for all of us.� Prior to approving the 28E agreement, the council discussed ongoing issues at the Hampton Public Library with Director Kim Manning. At the council¡s May 19 workshop, City Manager Ron Dunt reported that it would cost around $100,000 to reinforce the library¡s bulging curved wall and complete window renovations on the east side of the building. The bulge was discovered this winter, and ofÀcials have been investigating the cost to correct the problem since April. The library had planned to build a new courtyard along the east side in addition to paving a new parking lot

there this summer. However, it was recommended that those plans get put on hold until the curved wall renovations are budgeted for and completed. Council Member Jim Davies is investigating grants for the project to alleviate costs. Manning wondered if there was any way the courtyard and parking lot project could continue as planned, but Boehmler was hesitant about the possibility. “We all know we want the project to go forward, but we know the structural problem is the most important. We wouldn¡t want to tear up the outside landscaping with repairs to that structural issue,â€? he said. “I think waiting to see what monies might be out there to take us a little further would

be a wise choice.� • This week The council will meet in special session on Thursday, May 29, at 6 p.m., to discuss ongoing developments with the new wastewater treatment plant. The group plans to approve the third reading of an ordinance amendment adjusting sewer rates to Ànance the $8.4 million facility¡s construction. If approved, the council will most like ly award the construction contract for the project at the meeting.


TAUKE From Page 1 those folks.â€? Last Sunday marked the 40th anniversary of Tauke joining the priesthood. His journey with the Catholic Church has taken him from the small town of Dyersville, Iowa, to Baltimore, and back to Iowa again, but his message has remained unchanged after all these years – help those in need Ă€rst before helping yourself. “Sometimes we just kind of assume everybody¡s where we¡re at in life. But when we see those that need help, we need to take care of these people and not use judgment, but use mercy,â€? he said. Tauke¡s embracing approach is a reĂ ection of the time period in which he was ordained. When he was in seminary school, the Catholic Church was adjusting to a wave of change brought by the Second Vatican Council of the late-1960s and early-1970s. Mass changed from Latin to English, and the church was attempting to shift focus onto Jesus Christ¡s message, Tauke explained. The church¡s renewal had huge impact on Tauke, and his conservative views on Catholicism signiĂ€cantly evolved by the time he was ordained in 1974. “It changed how I thought of myself; how I view people around me; how I interacted with the very earth

that live on,â€? he said. “It was a very freeing event.â€? Tauke returned to Iowa after entering the priesthood and never looked back. He has served at various parishes in the Dubuque Diocese for 40 years, and has also served college ministries at Iowa State University and Mount Mercy College. He came to Hampton to lead St. Patrick¡s in July 2012 and also oversees the St. Mary¡s in Ackley. Four decades in ministry has created a lot of memories for Tauke, but one thing has always stuck out to him at nearly every church he¡s served. “The greatest moment is when you have a parish that discovers its soul,â€? he explained. “Where it comes alive, and you can feel it when you come in there. I think that a lot of the experiences I have had have been those experiences.â€? Two celebrations honoring Tauke¡s 40-year milestone are scheduled for this weekend. St. Mary¡s will host a barbeque meal after its 5 p.m., Saturday Mass, and St. Patrick¡s will host a pancake breakfast following the church¡s 10 a.m., Sunday morning Mass. “The 40 years has been like an exciting roller coaster ride,â€? he said. “You know, it¡s not always been a great ride, but it¡s been an adventure.â€?

HEITLAND REACHES HIGH AGWSR senior nabs state title

BY KRISTI NIXON DES MOINES - A broken foot his junior season hindered AGWSR senior Austin Heitland. All of that was put in the past when the sprinter claimed the Class 1A 400-meter title Thursday at Drake Stadium in Des Moines. It was a good day for the Cougars as Heitland also qualiÀed for both sprint Ànals as well and teammate Clay Meinders Ànished state runner-up in the shot put for the second year in a row. “It feels great,” Heitland said after winning the 400. “Ever since I was a freshman I really wanted to get here and be a state champion. I got all-state football, all sub-state basketball but state champion is what I really (wanted). I·m glad I got it.” Heitland pumped his Àst after he looked up at the clock to conÀrm his win. “Since I broke my foot in basketball last year, I took me a lot longer to get back in shape, so the 200 got me back in it,” Heitland said. “I thought I had to run the 400 a lot better. It·s so gratifying.” Runner-up Brett Prenger of Lawton-Bronson was .03 of a second behind him and Heitland had a grueling morning with qualifying for both the 100 and 200 prior to his championship run. “I had to dig a little harder than I usually have to, but I got it, though,” Heitland said. “I just realized that there is a lot of fast guys up here, not just one or two at a regular meet. (The) 200 wore me out pretty good, I was kind of worried it wore me out for this one, but it didn·t, I guess.” A busy man, Heitland ran a leg on the distance medley for the Cougars that Ànished Àfth, helping AGWSR to Ànish sixth as a team with 32 points, the second straight year in the top-10 for the school. It had to be the socks Thursday afternoon saw Chace Klein of Hampton-Dumont run a personal best in the Class 2A 400, but it was a second and a half back from Ànishing in the top eight.

“You know, I·m tired; really tired,” Klein said, “but I·m just glad I ran my personal best today and I gave it all I had. I gave everything I had and it was a really fun experience.” He ran 52.02, which was .27 faster than his previous best. It improved his seed by two spots as he Ànished 17th overall. Klein, who was sporting some new striped socks that caught the eye, said he got them especially for running state. “This is the Àrst time I brought them out to a track meet,” Klein said. “I was pretty excited to put them on and show them off today. Mainly (my personal best) was because of the socks! I never thought it would be this fun being down here.” Engebretson pours it on for sixth in 800 Drew Engebretson, a West Fork junior, blew away his personal best in the 800 to Ànish sixth in the Class 2A 800 on Saturday morning. His previous best, 2:02.94 at the Bulldog Relays, was no match for his 1:58.71 coming out of the Àrst section of the event. “I went out knowing what I wanted to run,” Engebretson said. “I knew what I wanted to run for the Àrst quarter and I knew I went out fast, so I kind of kept it back and then kicked it in the end.” He admitted it was, in fact, redemption for him after last year·s state meet and that it was awesome. “It·s really great, I guess,” Engebretson said. “A Àrst (medal) ever for me: sixth is pretty good, actually. Obviously, I want to keep getting better. “(It·s) motivation, I guess. I want to improve my place (next year).” He scored the only points for the Warhawks as they Ànished with three, good for a six-way tie for 39th. Perhaps being able to run in the second section would help him for a possible return trip in his senior season. “Our Àrst heat was really good,” Engebretson said. “It didn·t really matter this year (what heat

you were in).” Other action Hampton-Dumont·s boys shuttle hurdle relay Ànished 23rd when a fall in the third leg of the relay forced the team to make up ground. Parker Claypool hit the third to last hurdle hard, came over the next one even harder and fell to the ground. However, he got back up and allowed anchor Levi Pratt to Ànish up as the team went 1:05.23. Claypool later said he had a little blue in him from landing on the blue oval. West Fork·s Spencer Halloran missed out on a return trip to the Ànal in the 110-meter high hurdles, just out .18 from the top eight in his qualifying run on Friday afternoon. He Ànished 11th overall. The Warhawks· Peyton Twedt ran to 10:03.49 in the 3,200 on Thursday afternoon, good for 15th in a fast event which saw the Class 2A record broken by the winner, Michael Melchert of Monticello (9:17.69).

With peak boating season now underway, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is reminding boaters and anglers to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clean, Drain and Dryâ&#x20AC;? their boats and equipment to protect Iowa lakes and rivers from aquatic hitchhikers. Zebra mussels and Eurasian watermilfoil are two examples of aquatic invasive species that have spread across Iowa by hitchhiking on boats, in bait buckets, and with other equipment used in the water. Bighead and silver carp are aquatic invasive species that can also spread on their own by swimming up rivers and streams. These aquatic invaders

can create serious problems when they become established in our waters. To help raise awareness of aquatic invasive species, DNR employees will be doing watercraft inspections and invasive species education at public boat ramps across Iowa throughout the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overland transport of boats is one of the most common ways aquatic invasive species are spread,â&#x20AC;? said Kim Bogenschutz, aquatic invasive species program coordinator for the Iowa DNR. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By taking some simple precautions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; clean, drain, dry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; boaters and anglers can help

Answer : d) California. Jimmie got his ďŹ rst Cup Series win on April 28,2002, at California Speedway.

On a lazy Fall afternoon in 1985, 22,000 people watched as Harry Gant, driving the Mach 1 Chevrolet, won NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Delaware 500 at Dover International Speedway. On that same afternoon, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart were teenagers. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was only 11. Now, those 1985 grandstands have been replaced by a more modern steel-and-concrete edifice, seating more than 140,000 race fans. Tony Stewart won last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner of the Coca-Cola 600, Jimmie Johnson, finished 17th in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FedEx 400. He won this race in 2012.

Madison Mason of Hampton-Dumont concentrates as she gets set to throw the discus during the Class 2A track & ¿eld state meet on Friday, May 23. Mason ¿nished eighth, earning the Bulldogs a team point. KRISTI NIXON/HAMPTON CHRONICLE

FAMILY MATTERS: Mason ¿nishes eighth in front of friends and family DES MOINES - Even with a busy schedule, Madison Mason got support from family. One of the Àrst to congratulate the Hampton-Dumont junior after she scored an eighth-place Ànish in the discus in the Class 2A state track & Àeld meet was her uncle, who quickly wished her best and made his exit. “(That was) my uncle Kevin,” Mason said, “he came and visited. He came and watched me throw Thursday (in the shot). He lives in Des Moines, but he has a major-busy schedule. He·s awesome.” In her Àrst trip to the state meet, Mason was kind of awesome herself, scoring a medal with a throw of 119 feet, 6 inches in her second preliminary effort, which wasn·t her best. But it was plenty good enough that day. “I felt like I could always do more,” Mason said, whose personal best is an H-D school record 128-9. “But I was over-rotating when I started and it just felt off today.” She admitted that she was nervous going in. “It·s really nerve-wracking,” Mason said of the experience. “Before my last throw, coach (Brandon) Morton had the standings for me and the girl I threw against and got second at districts (effort) was four inches from mine. Yeah, it was deÀnitely nerve-wracking knowing that I could have been out but I stayed in eighth place for a long time.” However, Mason said the year has been outstanding for her. “It·s awesome, I·ve had an awesome year,” Mason said. “I have broke our school record, I have won conference for us, I won districts for us; I came down to Drake

and now I·ve placed eighth (at state). It brings a lot of hope for me next year. “I·ll probably work all summer long and then work in the weight room and work on agilities. It made me work that much harder knowing that I could have done better.” H-D scored its only point with Mason to Ànish in a Àve-way tie for 56th in 2A. A touch disappointed H-D senior Paige Wragge expressed she wasn·t happy with her Ànal 100 time after Thursday·s preliminary. The sprinter went 13.14 to Ànish 22nd overall. “I·m a little disappointed,” Wragge said. “I was really looking for a 12 (time) but I·m down here and excited to run. It·s just so fast - it·s already over. I wanted to come in with a good start at a place higher than what I came in at but I don·t know if that is going to happen.” But she was excited to get to run with her teammates in both the 4x100 and 4x200 on Friday. Both Ànished out of the Ànals, but had good runs, especially in the 4x1 which had Elvira Cavazos return to the third leg along with Jessica Speake and Shelby Tidman in the relay, the Bulldogs were 12th, just .12 out of the top eight. “I·m really excited to run the two races (Friday),” Wragge said, “because it·s nice to have some company down here.” The 4x200 team that included Speake, Tidman, Cassy Miller and Wragge Ànished in 1:50.48, good for 20th. In the same event, West Fork Ànished 17th, also missing the Ànal.

Warhawks shut out West Fork brought a good contingent down to the state meet, but did not score. The Warhawks· best Ànish was its shuttle hurdle relay that took 12th in 1:09.79, but that was 12th overall and .61 from qualifying for the Ànals. They had the sixth best seeded time going into the meet at 1:09.32. The team was made up of Anne Jorgensen, Taylor Logan, Courtney Larson and Lindsey Peterson. Maya Rowe was 17th in the 3,000 on Thursday afternoon and 21st in the 1,500 on Saturday afternoon, the last of which saw a Class 2A meet broken by Eagle Grove·s Tiffany Christensen, who ran it in 4:28.33. Courtney Larson improved on her state-qualifying high jump at 4-10, which was good for 18th. Lippert scores in 3,000 for AGWSR Bethany Lippert·s seventh-place Ànish in the 3,000 were the only points in the six events for the Cougars of AGWSR with her time of 10:55.89 in Class 1A. It crushed her previous season best by more than 30 seconds (11:31.01). She also ran a PR in the 1,500 by seven seconds in Ànishing 11th. Rachel Frazier just missed qualifying for the shot put Ànal by about a foot despite throwing in the Àrst Áight. She was 10th overall with a best effort of 34-0.25. The 4x800 team of Jessica Lippert, Maddie Brandt, Paola Cordova and Eri Siems took 11th overall in 10:18.15.

But with a trip to state on the line at Dike, the competition was great with two teams, South Winneshiek and Denver, shooting an outstanding 314 to tie for second with Denver winning the tiebreak.

Doubles win highlights H-D girls tennis regional WATERLOO - Hampton-Dumont·s girls· No. 1 doubles team of Ciara Spradlin and Bekah Christiansen earned a win in the Class 1A individual regional tennis tournament before being ousted on Thursday, May 22. Spradlin and Christiansen defeated the Webster City duo of Olivia Tasler and Ashley Richardson 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 at Waterloo. “I was very impressed that we had a doubles team make it out of

the Àrst round of regionals,” H-D coach Molly Eslick said. “This is an improvement from last year. Unfortunately, our No. 2 doubles team drew the No. 1 seed in the tournament, otherwise I think they could have won a round as well. “Brittany Bolerjack had a very close Àrst round match and Athena Levad drew the No. 2 seed right off the bat. It has been a great year and I have seen many improvements from every player throughout the season.”
