Harkin aide to visit Hancock County

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) announced today that his aide, Tom Larkin, will visit Hancock County on Thursday, June 19, as part of a summer tour highlighting Harkin’s partnership with Iowa communities through the years. Larkin will be at the Garner City Hall, 135 West 5th, at 10:45 a.m. The “In the Footsteps of History” tour will include all Iowa counties and feature local projects aimed at keeping Iowa communities healthy and safe, keeping communities thriving through targeted education, research, and economic development projects and promoting local agriculture and conservation, while mitigating disasters. Larkin will meet with local officials at Garner City Hall to discuss how public recreation facilities made possible by federal funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Park Service have benefitted the community. “Building new parks and recreational facilities promotes local tourism and provides great venues for Iowans to exercise and enjoy themselves,” said Senator Harkin. “With its zero-depth entry, the pool is also accessible for those Iowans with disabilities. I look forward to learning about how this new recreation facility has benefitted Hancock County.”

The former bank building on Main Avenue has been a topic of discussion among the Britt City Council for more than two years. Former mayor Jim Nelson is planning to form a committee that will try to save and restore the nearly century old structure

Council discusses bank, group hopes to save structure Emilie Jenson The Bank Building on Main Avenue remained the focus of the Britt City Council during their regular meeting Monday, June 2. Former Britt Mayor Jim Nelson told the council he held a meeting in May to discuss plans for the building and ideas for its use if a group of interested citizens could acquire it. “We have several people who have signed up to be on a committee to make a proposal,” said Nelson. “We want to organize and raise money.” Nelson told the council the group plans to organize and become a non-profit organization to be able to get grants to help save and renovate the building. “To be able to get grants we need to get our non-profit,” said Nelson. Nelson said several ideas were given on uses for the building, but one of the most highly suggested ideas was to convert the building

into a hotel. “We would like to become a non-profit organization that might eventually make an offer on the building and restore it,” said Nelson. “That can take time, that is why we are getting started now. We can’t get any grants until we own it.” Nelson had intended to ask the council for funding, but no motion was made to assist the group. Nelson said he would continue to update the council on the group’s status. Councilman Mike Ostercamp said he would like to see the building saved, but that the council needs to hear from someone with a definite plan and funding before he would commit to the efforts. “I’m not willing to commit until someone comes here and has the dollars on the table,” he said. “I can’t do that, until we have someone who says ‘here is my plan and here are my finances.’ I am for saving it but the city can’t be the owner and BRITT COUNCIL to page _

Britt pool open for summer

The Britt Aquatic Center is now open for the 2014 season. Hours are 1-8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday weather permitting. (Emilie Jenson / The Leader) T.J. VanCleave, of Hanlontown, bags up some of his fresh asparagus at the Britt Farmers Market. The market will be held in the park behind Britt City Hall every Wednesday beginning at 3 p.m. through early October. (Emilie Jenson / The Leader)

Farmers market is underway in Britt Emilie Jenson A cool, wet spring kept many gardeners from getting their crops in as soon as they wanted, but that didn’t keep them away from the first Britt Farmer’s Market of the season Wednesday afternoon. Everyone’s gardens are a little behind this year,” said Julie Sweers, coordinator of the Britt Farmer’s Market. “They aren’t quite up to speed yet.” Right now, plenty of radishes, asparagus and rhubarb are in season, Dan Lauters, of rural Garner said. He had bundles of asparagus and rhubarb for sale at his stand at the market along with fresh spinach, kale and lettuce. Lauters grows about an acre of produce near Miller and said he will have plenty to offer as the growing season progresses. “I’ll have about 50 different vegetables this year,” he said. “I’ll have seven varieties of squash later in the season, a few kinds of pumpkins, four varieties of watermelon. There will be potatoes and soup beans, pod peas, and lots of sweet corn. You name it we probably have it, and everything I sell comes right from my garden. Lauters said he will be back as often as he can this summer. “I just love coming to Britt,” he said. “I like being able to provide good food for good people.” Sweers sells a variety of baked goods, craft items and homemade soup mixes for now, but said she will offer produce when her garden is ready. “We do a little bit of everything here,” she said. T.J VanCleave, of Hanlontown, said he tries to get to a few local markets every summer. He was offering potted plants, decorative planters, and tomatoes at Wednesday’s market, but also said he will have more to offer as his garden matures. “I’ll be here for the season,” said VanCleave. “We will have all the

different vegetables as they become ready.” The Britt Farmers market is state certified and can accept WIC and senior farmer’s market produce checks. “There are state laws and guidelines we have to meet,” said Sweers. “We have to be certified to accept WIC and

building on Main Avenue. Jim Nelson, along with a group of Britt residents hoping to preserve the building plan to start a committee of people willing to put forth the effort to raise the funds to purchase the city owned building and to generate ideas on its use for the future. “We are a group of several people who are looking to save it,” Nelson said. “We are looking to see if there is anyone else interested.” To help generate ideas and interest, Nelson has planned a meeting for June 21 at the Britt City Hall. “We are still in the brainstorming phase now,” said Nelson. “But I would like to see a hotel going in there. Nelson said the group plans to get a 501c3 classification to become a non-profit organization. “We have to do that to get the grants,” he said. Anyone interested is invited to attend, Nelson said.

either way to tear it down or have it saved, I would rather see it saved,” he said. “No one wants to see an old building like that torn down, but people don’t want their tax dollars spent on that either,” said Public Works Director Jon Madson. Nelson said he is optimistic if the building was restored and converted to a hotel that it would generate revenue. “A hotel is guaranteed income,” Nelson said. “There is a need here. People will rent those rooms. There are a lot of events here and in the area.” Nelson said one idea was to sell $1,000 shares to help save the building. Nelson said he would purchase five shares if it was necessary. “We don’t want to waste any time,” he said.

BRITT COUNCIL from page 1 investor.” Nelson said if nothing else, he would like to see the city help fund repairs to the structure’s roof to prevent further deterioration until the group can raise funds and purchase the building. “Mainly I want them to help stop the water leaks,” said Nelson. “I’d like to see them put a membrane on the roof.” “How much can the city put into this to save it and how long would it be,” said Ostercamp. Where does the city stop; where is the ending point.” Ostercamp expressed concern that the building would be left to deteriorate further if the potential committee could not raise the funds needed to save it. “That is a risk worth taking,” said Nelson. “We don’t have the funds to spend yet, but I think it needs to be saved. I think something needs to be done.” “If we don’t take the risk we will just bury the thing; it will come down,” said Councilman Dwight Leerar. City Clerk Jeannie Purvis said it would cost anywhere from $125,000 to $175,000 to tear the building down. Councilman Chad Luecht said if the money is going to be spent he would rather save the building. “If we are going to spend money

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 • The




by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley Q: Why celebrate Flag Day? A: Flag Day observes the anniversary of the adoption of the “Stars and Stripes” on June 14, 1777, as the national flag of the United States of America. The alternating red and white stripes represent the 13 original colonies.  The white stars reflected the “new constellation” as observed by John Adams at the Continental Congress.  For more than two centuries, Old Glory has united Americans in times of war and peace, serving as an inalienable symbol of freedom, patriotism and civic purpose.  The majestic presentation of the red, white and blue, from classrooms to cemeteries, sports arenas, courtrooms, front porches and town squares serves as a visible salute to those who have fought to defend individual liberty, freedoms, self-governance and our American way of life.  Singing the National Anthem and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance are common rituals that bring together classmates, teammates, friends and neighbors.  Every year on June 14, Flag Day offers an opportunity for households, businesses and communities across the country to display the flag and show unity to our unique heritage.  Displaying the flag also pays tribute to America’s fallen heroes, members of the Armed Forces and our veterans who have defended liberty and justice in service and sacrifice to our nation so that we may live as a free people in a free society.   Q: What does the U.S. flag symbolize?  A: For generations of Americans and freedom-loving people around the world, the U.S. flag symbolizes independence from tyranny.  Since the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Americans have laid down their lives, sacrificing blood and treasure to defend the sacred principles upon which our nation was founded.  Seventy summers ago, Americans led Allied Forces to storm the beachheads of Normandy to liberate a continent under siege.  Young men in uniform, many of whom were scarcely past puberty, accepted a mission borne with

the gravest of risks. Holding fast to the courage of their convictions, the grace of Providence and the blessings of faith, family and fraternity, these freedom fighters scaled the cliffs, launched a hazardous amphibious assault and stormed the shoreline under an unimaginable hailstorm of enemy artillery.  Bound by love of country, duty, loyalty and honor, the bravest of the brave changed the course of history on the early morning hours of June 6, 1944.  Thanks in large measure to their courageous service, the D-Day Invasion paved a path to peace and prosperity for posterity.  Let us not forget their sacrifice or the sacrifices of those who would follow in their footsteps, wearing the uniform with honor and distinction in service to our country to defeat the evils of tyranny and hatred.  Upholding the noble goodness of their cause calls for a renewed commitment to a common purpose.  Old Glory represents the sacred ideals that galvanize us as a nation, from our darkest hours to our greatest triumphs.  Let us lead by example so that our youngest generations will embrace the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.  Seven decades ago, the heroes of D-Day lit the lamp of liberty halfway around the world.  Let us make sure it continues to shine brightly for generations to come.  Be strong stewards of our system of self-governance.  Vote.  Volunteer.  Make a difference through public or military service.  Embrace our system of free enterprise as a job creator, entrepreneur and productive member of the taxpaying public.  On Flag Day and every day in between, let’s make good on the everyday responsibilities of citizenship and fulfill our debt of gratitude to the extraordinary sacrifice of those who have given above and beyond the call of duty.   Iowans may order a U.S. flag to be flown over the U.S. Capitol on a specific date through Senator Grassley’s office.  Payments and orders should be made six weeks prior to the flying date requested.  To make a request, go to  Click on Constituent Services to download the flag order request form.

Nintendo’s Woes

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with Nintendo. They’ve made some of the greatest games ever created. Their characters are among the most recognizable in the world. And yet, they can be incredibly dumb sometimes. Their current system, the Wii U, is meant to compete with Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. This in spite of the fact that the system is nearly two years old and running on technology that was barely up to the industry standards of the previous generation. But “behind the times” doesn’t just describe the Wii U. It appears to be Nintendo’s company motto. In the age of Internet gaming, Nintendo’s online infrastructure is almost embarrassing. In 2012 Nintendo came up with the Nintendo Network ID, which finally brought Nintendo’s online social experience up to the standard set by Microsoft’s Xbox Live in 2002. And while it’s possible to purchase games digitally from Nintendo’s E-Shop, the fact that those games become locked to the console you buy them on shows Nintendo truly doesn’t understand the full potential of the Internet. In comparison, I could go to any random PC with an Internet connection, log on to Steam, and download anything I’ve ever bought. If my computer explodes, my library and even some of my game saves will still be there waiting for me when I get my next computer up and running. On the other hand, if my 3DS explodes, I lose not just it, but every game I’ve downloaded onto it.

Age of The Geek

Travis Fischer is a writer for Mid America Publishing

Nintendo has even been slow to adapt to the world of video game streaming. The number of people who watch other people play video games doubled from 2012 to 2013. Twitch. tv reaches 45 million unique viewers per month. YouTube videos of people playing games are, by far, the largest audience builders on the site. So naturally, Nintendo has gone out of their way to alienate as many of those people as possible. First by strong-arming ad revenue away from the people who showcase their games on YouTube, then by attempting to shut down last year’s “Super Smash Bros.” tournament at the annual Evo convention. Backlash caused them to retract their demands and the tournament generated a record-breaking 100,000 concurrent viewers. So is Nintendo hopeless? Well, not quite. There is hope. In fact, in the last year or so it seems that Nintendo has realized that it isn’t 2004 anymore. The newly released “Mario Kart 8” allows players to upload replays of their races directly to YouTube. Granted, that’s a far cry from the sharing features of the Xbox One or PS4, but at least it shows that Nintendo is aware of YouTube’s significance among their audience. Another positive sign is the upcoming “Super Smash Bros.” game. Although the game has been played competitively for years, Nintendo has

never really embraced that community. Until now. Along with the latest version of the game including features dedicated to the hardcore crowd, by the time this column sees print Nintendo will have hosted the first Super Smash Bros. Invitational. Sixteen of the top Smash Bros. players will compete in the first authorized contest, streamed live on Nintendo has a long way to go to get out of the tailspin they are in. Some of their problems, like the inferior technology of the Wii U, are just things they’re going to have to deal with for the time being. Other problems, like the Wii U’s $299 price point and the unnecessarily necessary game pad, have solutions, but they will be painful in the short run. But more than anything else, Nintendo needs a heavy dose of reality. This is nothing new. Nintendo has been their own worst enemy since 1996 when the company stubbornly chose to stick with expensive cartridges to contain their games when its competitors moved on to CDs. The best thing Nintendo can do at this point is take a page out of Microsoft’s book. Listen to what the user-base wants, and give it to them. Travis Fischer is a news writer for Mid-America Publishing and will probably break down and get a Wii U once the new Zelda is announced.

Summer sports, academics and legislature

With spring sports wrapped up for another year, the summer sports season has arrived. Congratulations to our spring athletes who represented their schools so well at track, tennis, soccer, and golf competitions across the district and at State. I am looking forward to following this summer’s high school baseball and softball teams as well! There is certainly no shortage of talent in our high school athletic programs. Likewise, there is no shortage of talent in the area of academics either. I’ve enjoyed reading about the many scholarships and awards our recent graduates have received. As these young Iowans make preparations for life beyond high school, it’s exciting to think about all of the opportunities that await them. I’m so pleased the Legislature was able to freeze tuition at our public universities for the second straight year, provide additional funding for our community colleges, and increase opportunities for Iowans who wish to attend one of Iowa’s independent colleges. I am also hopeful some will take a look at the available apprenticeship programs in the state. This past session, we invested $2.75 million to help businesses offset the cost of training new apprentices. More and more people are discovering there are great careers to be had in the skilled trades industry, and speaking from personal experience- when your home gets struck by lightning, you’ll be glad to have a skilled electrician in the area! Regardless of the chosen path, it’s encouraging to know that when these

young grads are ready to enter the Iowa workforce, good jobs will be available. Iowa’s latest unemployment rate has dropped to 4.3 percent, and employers are still consistently telling me they continue to be in need of more strong, highly-skilled, well-trained workers. These young Iowans are the future leaders of our communities. We want to encourage them to stay in Iowa, not only by passing legislation to promote job creation, but also by making it more affordable to buy a home and raise a family in our state. This year the House passed a bill that would help Iowans interested in purchasing their first home, save money in order to do so. The legislation would have established a first-time home buyers savings account to help individuals save money for a down payment and other costs related to buying a home. That savings, up to $3000 per person or $6000 per couple per year, could be deducted from the state income tax for up to 10 years. While the bill did not make it to the Governor’s desk this session, I believe it is a concept that deserves more work next year. Again, congratulations to the Class of 2014. I look forward to following your continued success and wish you all the best as you begin your next

chapter. Thank you to everyone who exercised their constitutional right by voting in this year’s primary election. More specifically, while I did not have an opponent, I’d like to thank all of you who supported me. It is an honor to represent you in the Statehouse and I look forward to continuing to serve this district. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at linda.upmeyer@legis. or 515-281-4618 with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have.

QUESTION: What are the current vaccine recommendations for my teenager? ANSWER by: Mark Lloyd, DO, providing treatment and care for the whole family at Garner Medical Clinic. This is frequently a busy time in the life of a child, and subsequently, their parents. It is hard enough keeping them on the right track, whether it’s with academics, sports, jobs, and that’s not even addressing any matters of dating. Hearts race in a flood of anxiety and their preventable health gets pushed to the back burner. Hard to be proactive when it seems that there are bigger fish to fry. I would urge parents that of any age group adolescents are not routinely scheduling annual wellness exams and thus may be getting behind on their immunization schedules. I hope to be able to clarify the current vaccine recommendations for adolescents. Of course, there are contraindications and exceptions to these schedules and you should speak with your healthcare provider if you have questions. Ages 11-12 - Children should receive a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, aka whooping cough), Meningococcal, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and flu vaccine. • The Tdap acts as a booster to the

Tiara Van Gerpen

Riannan Kadrlik

Two from Garner to attend Girls State Rebecca Peter GARNER – Two Garner-Hayfield/Ventura students were selected as delegates to the Iowa Girls State, June 15-20 on the campus of Iowa State University, Ames. They were selected by the Gifford Olson Post of the American Legion Auxiliary in Garner. Riannan Kadrlik, daughter of Dan and Lori Kadrlik, and Tiara Van Gerpen, daughter of Paul and Traci Van Gerpen, will be seniors at Garner-Hayfield/ Ventura Community School. Riannan is a member of Teen Council, Girl Scouts, soccer, concert choir, and color guard at GHV. She plans to attend college. Tiara participates in the GHV band, choir, speech, and cheerleading squads. She is also a member of the GHV cross-country, basketball, track, soccer, and softball teams. She is an active member of her church youth group. She plans to attend college after high school is considering pre-med as a course of study. Iowa Girls State is one of the premier programs sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. Girls state started over 66 years ago to teaching young women about the political process. Girls State is a “learning by doing” program, which takes the girls through the entire political process. It covers city government, which is non-partisan in Iowa. Each citizen is assigned to a floor, which is her city for the week. Early in the week, the girls elect their mayors and city councils, transact city business, pass city ordinances and work on a city project for judging later. They are divided into political parties and campaign to get their party’s candidates elected. By the end of the week, delegates have elected county and state officials. On Friday evening, inauguration is held which includes the closing of the final joint session of the House and Senate, the installation of the Governor and her officials, and many scholarships are awarded and the Girls Nation Senators are announced. During the week, the American Legion Auxiliary President speaks about the various Auxiliary programs and there are several speakers on a variety of subjects.

Dane Neuberger

Michael Chizek

Chizek and Neuberger selected for Boys State

Two Garner-Hayfield/Ventura students were selected by the American Legion to participate in the 2014 Boys State event to be held at Camp Dodge in Johnston, June 15-20. Michael Chizek will be a senior at GHV in the fall. He is the son of Kenneth and Cyndi Chizek. Michael served as a junior class officer as well as a member of choir, football, marching and jazz bands, and National Honor Society. Dane Neuberger will also be a senior in the fall. He is the son of Kerry Neuberger and the late David Neuberger II. Dane participated in mock trial, choir, concert band, and drama. He also served as the statistician for the girl’s basketball team. Iowa American Legion Hawkeye Boys State is a weeklong “Hands-On” experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Iowa government. Through the Boys State objective of “learning by doing”, young men will learn more about city, county and state government in one week than they would in an entire semester of high school. Boys State is an exercise in leading as well as following others. Elections are an opportunity to show the ability to perform under pressure and to show character in the face of victories and/or defeats. Boys State will test skill in solving problems and working effectively within a team. Boys State is an opportunity to gain pride and respect for our form of government and the price paid by people to preserve democracy. The week contains ceremonies and assemblies as well as marching and pageantry. Guest speakers, such Past National Commander of The American Legion David Rehbein, and former director of the Iowa High School Athletic Association Bernie Saggau, along with Iowa government leaders attend each year to offer their vision and advice. Daily flag raising and lowering ceremonies are conducted at Boys State. With over 500 delegates in attendance, Boys State offers an opportunity to meet people who represent Iowa’s diversity in heritage and culture. One of the finest objectives afforded to young men by Boys State are the friendships they will form with other Boys State citizens, many of whom will become lifelong friends.

Belmond native announces bid
for State Representative CLARION – Belmond native Nancy Paule Huisinga has officially announced

that she will run for State Representative in House District 8. “My family of business owners, farmers, and nurses, taught me the meaning of hard work and helping your neighbors at a young age. I was raised by a single mom who worked up to three jobs as a registered nurse and still found time to volunteer and help others in our community. I’ll take those values with me to the statehouse and be a strong voice for rural Iowa,” said Huisinga. Huisinga was raised in Belmond and now lives in Clarion.  She is currently a home health and hospice care nurse and has co-owned and operated a registered daycare in Clarion.  She is a graduate of Belmond High School and Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant. “I understand how important quality child care is to working families and I know what it takes to run a successful small business,” added Huisinga.  “I’m deeply proud to be raised and live in Wright County but there is more that the state can and must do to help communities like ours thrive and grow. Anyone who works hard should be able to enter the ranks of the middle class. One should not have to be a land owner or a business executive  to be middle class in America.  My work days in public health are focused on finding services and resources to help Wright County give top quality care to its people economically. I feel that my extensive background and all that I have learned in the healthcare setting as a nurse, will serve the people of District 8 well if I am elected.

On June 9, 2008, he was working at a high elevation at his job in Garner.

Klemme Homestead Museum Mr. H.J. Klemme owned a 160-acre farm and decided a railroad would be a part of his farm. In 1889 he took twelve acres of his farm and made city blocks and a main street where he developed it into his Klemme. His farmhouse was moved from the east side of Klemme to the center of the town plot of Klemme and it became the first house in the new town. Several families occupied the house before it was purchased in 1916 by Clark and Martha Bredbenner. Their only child, Novella Bredbenner, was born in the house and lived there all her life – 1917-2007. She donated the house and contents to the city of Klemme and named it the Klemme

Homestead Museum. What a gem! Klemme’s Quasquicentennial will be celebrated June 20, 21, and 22. Plan to visit the museum on Friday, June 20, from 12-4 p.m. During this time there will be a garage sale. On Saturday, June 21, the museum will be open after the parade until 4 p.m. There is no admission charge, but donations are appreciated. Two new exhibits include the Bicentennial quilt made in 1976 by Mrs. Wessel’s 5th and 6th graders and quilted by the 5th-8th graders in 1978. The other special display will be the word KLEMME taken from the depot when it was torn down in 1975.

Guido Gardens, Metter, GA No matter how many years I went to school or how many tests I took, nothing was more disappointing or discouraging than to be reminded that my answers did not agree with the teachers’s questions. Whenever there was a disagreement, I had to defer to the teacher’s wisdom, knowledge and learning. And when David asked God for the answer to “Life’s Ultimate Question” God responded by giving him a simple, straightforward, easy-to-understand answer: “The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart.” God’s words to David address our walk, our work, and our talk - which covers every aspect of our lives. To walk blamelessly requires us to live and walk in God’s path by being obedient to God’s rules and regulations. His Word is not open to our interpretation nor do we have the right to pick and chose what we will or will not do. If He said it, we are to obey it and do it! To do what is righteous requires that we are to behave - to live our lives - in ways that are consistent with the character of God. Our God is a loving God, a holy God and a saving and serving God. Righteousness goes far beyond piety because one can be pious and not do God’s work in His world. To speak the truth from our hearts means that our walk and our talk are consistent and conform to God’s Word and come from the very center of our being.

Cards Win at West Hancock

North Iowa Conference baseball action began last week and GHV opened league play with an impressive win at Britt. The Cards followed with a non-conference loss to West Bend/ Mallard on Wednesday and then fell to second-rated (Class 1A) Newman on Friday. The Cardinals wasted no time getting on the board at Britt on Monday. Spencer Shaw drew a lead off walk and eventually scored on Josh Theobald’s fly out to center. Braden Meints followed with a double and reached home on Jake Wolf’s single. GHV held the Eagles scoreless for three innings but West Hancock plated a run in the fourth to keep the game interesting. The Cards responded with two runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth to put the game away. Cardinal batters took advantage of a few free passes and some Eagle errors in those two innings on the way to the 7 – 2 win. Theobald earned the pitching win for GHV, scattering six hits and four walks with 10 strikeouts. Alek Goll had a pair of singles to lead the Cards at the plate. Meints and Payton James added doubles to the offense while Jake Wolf and Cade Baker singled. GHV and West Bend were tied at 1 1 after the first inning of Wednesday’s game and the Cards then pulled ahead 2 – 1 after two innings. The Cardinals maintained that advantage into the fourth inning when the Wolverines exploded for five runs on the way to the 8 – 2 victory. Spencer Shaw started on the mound for the Cards, giving up six hits and

a walk with four K’s. Payton James relieved Shaw in the fifth inning, holding West Bend to one hit. Jake and Luke Wolf tag-teamed the final two innings, with Jake issuing a walk and Luke giving up three hits. Spencer Shaw hit a double and a single to pace the Cardinal offense followed by Braden Meints and Jimmy Ermer with two base hits each. Completing the offense for GHV were Josh Theobald with a double and Cory Boeckman with a single. Mason City Newman has been one of the toughest teams in the NIC over the last few seasons and they appear to be fielding another strong squad this year. The Cards were battling Newman through the first two innings but the Knights were able to plate a run in the third inning to take the lead. Newman added five more runs over the next three innings while holding the Cards scoreless on the way to a 6 – 0 decision. Payton James had a good outing on the mound for GHV, lasting into the sixth inning with five hits, six walks and four strikeouts. Jake Wolf surrendered two walks in a short stint on the mound in relief and brother Luke finished the game, getting the final out. Cade Baker slammed a double with a single to lead the Cardinal offense while Braden Meints chipped in a pair of singles. Spencer Shaw and Cory Boeckman each added base hits for the Cards. GHV finished the week 1 – 1 in league play and 2 – 6 overall. The played a pair of games at the Lake Mills tournament on Saturday. Details

Weekend baseball tournaments early in the season are a good way for coaches to try different combinations of players. Cardinal baseball coach Paul Childress took advantage of that opportunity at Lake Mills on Saturday as GHV played games against two non-conference opponents. In the first game, the Cards dropped a one run decision to Northwood-Kensett while GHV then fell to St. Ansgar in the second game of the day. Northwood-Kensett had a big first inning in their game with GHV, scoring five runs courtesy of a few walks, a couple hits and a couple of Cardinal errors. The Cards answered with three runs in the bottom of the first only to see the Vikings score twice in the top of the second inning. GHV had a big second inning as they plated five runs thanks to some timely hitting. Northwood tied the game in the top of the fourth and then scored what would prove to be the winning run in the top of the sixth. The Cards were unable to rally in the late innings and Northwood posted a 9 – 8 victory. Luke Wolf started on the mound for GHV, surrendering four hits and four walks with a strikeout. Cory Boeck-

man relieved Wolf in the second inning, holding N-K to two runs on three hits with three strikeouts. Josh Theobald threw the final inning and picked up a couple of strikeouts. GHV had a good night at the plate and finished the game with a dozen hits. Spencer Shaw hit a double and two singles to lead the way followed by Theobald and Braden Meints each with a double and a single. Jimmy Ermer chipped in a couple of bunt singles while Cade Baker, Payton James and Kaleb Bruggeman all singled. Saint Ansgar has fielded strong baseball teams for many years and the Saints appear to be competitive again this season. Saint Ansgar scored a run in the top of the second inning but GHV answered with a run in the bottom of the third to knot the score at 1 – 1. The game was close for another inning, but the Saints broke the game open with five runs in the fifth inning. Saint Ansgar added another run in the sixth and four more in the seventh to make the final score 11 – 1. Holden Hutcheson pitched four strong innings for GHV, scattering seven hits and four walks with four strikeouts. Jake Wolf relieved Hutcheson in

the fifth inning, surrendering five runs on two hits and three walks with two strikeouts. Cory Boeckman took the mound in the seventh inning to record the final out after allowing a hit and a walk. Jake Wolf and Cade Baker each singled twice to lead the GHV offense. Alek Goll, Josh Theobald, Harry Roberts and Harley Forry all added base hits to the effort. The Cards are now 2 - 8 overall and will be in action four nights this week. GHV will host Lake Mills on Monday and then travel to Osage on Wednesday. The Cardinals then return home on Thursday to face Clear Lake before heading to Forest City on Friday. Box scores from the Lake Mills tournament games follow.

GARNER LIBRARY from page 1 Bowen, Rhys; Hush Now, Don’t You Cry - Molly Murphy, now Molly Sullivan, and her husband Daniel have been invited to spend their honeymoon on the Newport, RI, estate of Alderman Brian Hannan in the spring of 1904. Molly doesn’t entirely trust the offer. Hannan has his eye on a senate seat and intentions of taking Tammany Hall to get it. When Hannan is found dead Molly’s suspicions are quickly justified, and as much as she wants to keep her promise to Daniel that she won’t do any more sleuthing now, there isn’t much she can do once the chase is on. Bowen, Rhys; The Last Illusion Irish immigrant and private detective Molly Murphy is thrilled to have a ticket to see world-famous illusionist Harry Houdini. But before he can even take the stage, the opening act goes horribly wrong—and the sensational Signor Scarpelli’s lovely assistant is sawed in half. In the aftermath, Scarpelli accuses Houdini of tampering with his equipment. Who else but the so-called Handcuff King could have got a hold of his trunk of tricks, which he keeps under lock and key?.

Storm uses his climbing gear to tether himself to the wing and heroically save the plane and all the people on board. Sadly, Storm is not available to come to the aid of the three other planes that have crashed under similar circumstances, killing everyone on board. Interestingly, many of the victims are powerful people in politics, business and religious groups.

Deaver, Jeffery; The Skin Collector The killer’s methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City.

 Francis, Dick; Refusal - Six years ago, investigator Sid Halley retired for good. He’d been harassed, beaten, shot, even lost a hand to his investigating business, and enough was enough. For the sake of his wife and new daughter he gave up that life of danger and uncertainty, and he thought nothing would ever lure him back into the game. He thought wrong. Sir Richard Stewart, chairman of the racing authority, begs Sid to investigate a series of dodgy races. Sid adamantly refuses, but the following day, Sir Richard is found dead under suspicious circumstances. 
 Michaels, Fern; A Family Affair - In a city built on dreams, Trisha Holiday makes her living moving like one. But out of her dancer’s costume, she’s as down-to-earth as they come. That’s why she ignores the admiring note—and the accompanying $1000 bill—that arrives backstage after one of her ethereal performances. Yet the sender, a wealthy foreign prince, isn’t easily dissuaded. Seven years living and studying in the United States have made Malik long for the freedom to choose his own bride—and the woman he wants is Trisha.

Notice of No Significant Impact

Notice of No Significant Impact The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application from Iowa Lakes Regional Water for financial assistance. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities Service has assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed project and has determined that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and for which an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is a review and evaluation of the information provided in the Amended Environmental Assessment signed on May 21, 2014. This amended assessment has addressed the environmental resources affected by the proposed construction. Iowa Lakes Regional Water (ILRW) is partnering with the City of Lu Verne for construction of a wastewater collect and treatment facility. The lagoon treatment site is located in the NW ¼ of Section 32 Township 94 North, Range 27 West of the 5th P.M. in Kossuth County, with an outfall line going north to the Prairie

Creek. Iowa Lakes Regional Water and project engineers, Yaggy Colby Engineers (YC), have determined the outfall line will need to be extended approximately 330 feet to the north after treatment into the Prairie Creek. This proposed action will cross the 100-year floodplain with the extension of the outfall line, and could affect wetlands and important farmlands. Mitigation measures are designed to protect against the unwarranted impact on and because of the environment. The following is a summary of mitigation measures discussed in this assessment: 1. The project will not convert a floodplain and a flood will not affect the project. Iowa Lakes Regional Water agrees to be in compliance with Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management, and will deny water service to any new development that builds in a 100-year floodplain or a critical action development in a 500-year floodplain. 2. Iowa Lakes Regional Water agrees to be in compliance with Executive Order 11990, Wetland Protection, and will deny service to any new construction which converts a wetland.

3. If the proposed project work uncovers an item or times that might be of archaeological, historical, or architectural interest, of if important new date is discovered in the project are, the applicant will make reasonable efforts to avoid or minimize harm to the property, until the significance of the discovery is determined. 4. ILRW will abide by the requirements under Nationwide Permit No. 12. 5. ILRW will abide by the requirements of the IDNR letter. 6. ILRW will abide by the requirements of the Kossuth County Flood Plain Permit. Copies of the Environmental Assessment are available for review at the Iowa Lakes Regional Water office located at 1301 38th Avenue, Spencer, Iowa or at USDA Rural Development, 1301 6th Avenue North, Suite 1, Humboldt, Iowa 50548. For further information, contact Preston Sandstrom, Area Specialist / Community Programs at the above address or by phoning 515-332-4411. A general location map of the proposal is shown below.

Cardinal Girls Top West Hancock

GHV softball coach Christi Weiser was anticipating that her Cardinals would be an improved team this year. The Cards were winless in North Iowa Conference action last season and they have already bettered that effort with last week’s win at Britt. The Cardinals then dropped a one-run decision at Mason City before falling at Newman on Friday. GHV scored three runs in the first inning against the Eagles and never trailed as the Cardinals ran away with the game. Maddie Tusha and Tiara Van Gerpen had identical performances in the first inning as they both singled and then stole their way around the bases. Mallory Van Oort also singled, stole second and third and eventually scored on Brooklyn Ossman’s sacrifice fly. West Hancock scored in the bottom of the fourth, keeping the game close at 3 – 1, but the Cardinals answered with an eight-run fifth inning to retake command. Six hits and two free passes helped fuel the GHV rally as a dozen Cardinals came to bat in the inning. The Eagles tried to stay in the game with four runs in their half of the fifth, but GHV added five more runs over the next two innings on the way to a 16 – 7 win. Brooklyn Ossman earned the pitching win, throwing a complete game with six hits, three walks and six strikeouts. GHV amassed 18 hits in the game, with Mallory Van Oort picking up four singles to lead the way. Tiara Van Gerpen and Miranda Jackson each finished with three hits followed by Maddie Tusha and Mackenzie Van Gerpen with a double and a single. Also in the hit column were Payton Bamrick, Grace Tusha, Autumn Weaver and Ossman all with singles. The Cardinals finished one run short in Wednesday’s non-conference game at Mason City. Coach Weiser used a number of players in the game, taking advantage of an opportunity to give

several players some experience. The two teams were knotted at 1 – 1 after one inning when the Mohawks plated three runs in the second to pull away. Mason City expanded their lead to 6 – 1 in the fourth inning but GHV got right back in the game with three runs in the fifth. The Cards scored again in the seventh and had the tying run on third base when Mason City extinguished GHV’s rally, making the final 6 – 5. Sydney Childress started on the mound for the Cards, giving up two hits and a walk with a strikeout. Eighth-grader Jillian Heitland took over in the third inning, surrendering three hits and two walks with a strikeout. Brooklyn Ossman relieved Heitland in the fourth inning and finished the game with three hits and a strikeout. Mallory Van Oort and Maddie Tusha each hit a double to lead GHV’s offense. Tiara Van Gerpen added a pair of singles while Grace Tusha, Autumn Weaver and Brooklyn Laird all singled. The Cardinals resumed North Iowa Conference play on Friday with a game at Newman. The Knights have gained a lot of attention this season and are currently rated 11th in Class 1A in spite of their recent loss to a mediocre Mason City Mohawk team. Newman scored once in the bottom of the first inning to take the lead but the Cards answered with a run in the top of the third to knot the score at 1 – 1. Maddie Tusha earned a oneout walk, stole second base and then scored on Mallory Van Oort’s single. GHV appeared ready to add to their run total, but the Knights were able to end the Cardinal rally. Newman then broke the game open with seven runs in their half of the third inning. The Knights capitalized on five Cardinal errors during that streak that put the game out of reach. GHV had scoring threats in the fifth and seventh innings,

but Newman escaped both times to make the final 9 – 1. GHV finished the game with six total hits with Mallory Van Oort leading the way with a pair of singles. Maddie Tusha, Brooklyn Ossman, Grace Tusha and Autumn Weaver all added base hits to the Cardinal offense. Ossman pitched a complete game for the Cardinals, surrendering 10 hits and a walk with a strikeout. Coach Weiser commented, ““This week was a good learning, stepping stone week for our team. We started the week with a great conference win over a young, but improving West Hancock team and then played competitive games against tough competition the rest of the week. The one run loss to Mason City stings because we feel we could have won that game, but credit goes to the Mohawks for making a couple of big plays. The Newman game was a much better game than the score indicates.” GHV is 1 – 1 in NIC play and 1 – 5 after the Newman loss. The Cardinals played in tournament action at Lake Mills on Saturday. Results from those games appear in a separate story in the Leader Sports section. Box scores from last week’s games follow.

GHV Falls at Lake Mills Softball Tourney

A full week of softball action for GHV concluded at the Lake Mills tournament on Saturday. The Cards lost to a very impressive squad from Central Springs and also dropped a heartbreaker to Northwood-Kensett. Central Springs is currently rated fourth in Class 2A and the Panthers’ pitcher is no doubt a main factor in that rating. GHV managed only one hit against Central Springs as Mallory Van Oort’s single ruined the no-hitter. Miranda Jackson was the only other Cardinal baserunner in the game when she was awarded first base after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. Central Springs scored in each inning on the way to the 10 – 0 win. Sydney Childress went the distance on the mound for the Cards, surrendering seven hits and seven walks with a strikeout. The game against Northwood-Kensett involved use of the international tie-breaker rule since the game exceeded the time limits for the tournament game. In that situation, a base runner is placed on second base at the beginning of an inning to help the game reach a quicker conclusion. GHV scored lone runs in the first and second innings and then added three more in the fourth while the Vikings scored twice in the first and added two more in the third. The Cards appeared to have the game locked up when they scored again in the fifth, but Northwood added two more in their half of the fifth to force the extra innings. Both teams scored once in the sixth and things looked good for the Cardi-

nals when they plated two runs in the seventh. Unfortunately, the Vikings answered with a three-run seventh to pick up the win. Mallory Van Oort had three singles in the game to lead GHV’s nine hit attack. Adding base hits to the offense were Maddie Tusha, Tiara Van Gerpen, Payton Bamrick, Grace Tusha, Autumn Weaver and Broolyn Laird. Brooklyn Ossman went threw a complete game for GHV, giving up 10 hits and two walks with a strikeout. Cardinal coach Christi Weiser commented, “Central Springs is one of the top Class 2A teams for a reason and they got a great pitching performance against us. We could have won against Northwood-Kensett but they made a couple of big plays to get the win.” Coach Weiser is encouraged by the improvement shown by the Cards in recent outings. “I’m really happy with the progress we are making. Our pitchers threw complete games this week and are improving with each outing. Offensively, we are starting to understand how to have a good approach and are having more quality at-bats and giving ourselves an opportunity to be aggressive on the bases, which our kids love to do. We need to continue to get better on defense, but these kids work so hard that it’s just a matter of time until that part clicks.” The Cardinals are now 1 – 7 overall and will play four games this week. GHV will host Lake Mills on Monday and then travel to Osage on Wednesday. A non-conference game at Rockford is on the schedule for Thursday

and the Cards will resume NIC play on Friday at Forest City. Weiser is expecting even more improvement this week. “We look forward to a lot of games against more great competition this week and continuing to get better each time we step on the field.” Box scores from the Lake Mills tournament games follow.

Cardinals Fall in Regional Soccer GHV was hoping to pull off an upset in first round regional soccer action, but the Cardinal girls were unable to overcome a talented Clear Lake Squad. The Cards hosted the Lions in a soggy Tuesday evening match where Clear Lake found the net four times to advance in tournament play. GHV had a number of scoring threats in the match but failed to find the goal as the

Lions posted a 4 – 0 victory. Bri Bier led the Cardinal offense with six shots on goal. Payton Bamrick added three shots in the match while Riannan Kadrlik, Emily Spilman and Tiara Van Gerpen all finished with a shot on goal. Hannah Lau was credited with nine saves in her role as goalie. Cardinal coach Josh Banse commented, “ Our team has improved

with every season! Clear Lake is a good team and they deserved to win.” Banse is enthused by what he sees ahead. “We will return nine starters and three subs from this year’s squad. The girls are already in the weight room and doing speed workouts to get ready for next year.” GHV finished the season with an overall record of 5 – 10.

Summer reading at local libraries Emilie Jenson With school out and summer vacation underway, local public libraries are gearing up to kick-off their annual summer reading programs. The Britt Public Library has several activities planned for all ages in the coming weeks, beginning Friday with an adult reading program featuring author Thomas Maltman at 3 p.m. at the Library. Maltman is the author of one of the featured All Iowa Reads books. On June 19 at 11 a.m. the Blank Park Zoo will present a program at the library for youth and on June 25 at 3:30 p.m. the Minneapolis based Zinghoppers will present a music, video, DJ and puppet program. “These are both programs designed to get kids into the library and a kickoff to get them signed up for our sum-

mer reading program,” Library Director Linda Friedow said. The summer reading program will begin July 3 with three sessions. Children in kindergarten will meet fro m 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., first and second grade from 1 to 2 p.m. and third and fourth grade from 3 to 4 p.m. with a preschool session at 6:30 p.m. for children who have not started school. This years theme of “Fizz Boom Read” features a science theme and each session will offer activities and crafts. Participants can log their reading hours and those who meet their goals will be eligible to go on a mystery field trip later in the summer. The Corwith Public Library started the summer reading program June 4 and will offer sessions every Wednesday in June from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Each session focuses on a science activity with upcoming activities includ-

ing exploring the every day wonders of science, designing pinball games and working with recycled material robots. Each reader will have the opportunity to turn in their reading logs for prize tickets. A finale will be held July 9 with a juggling program presented by the Hanson family of Kanawha. The Wesley Public Library will start its program with a performance by the Hansons and a sign up day July 7 at 2 p.m. Every Tuesday morning will feature a movie and crafts will be on Saturday mornings in July. The season will wrap up with a pool party. In Kanawha the summer reading program will be held on Mondays in July from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Library. July 21 will feature a program by the Hanson Family. Each week will offer activities following the statewide theme and includes experiments, reading hours, book giveaways and a reading raffle.

Summit House hosts open house Emilie Jenson The public got a chance to get an inside look at the Summit House Assisted Living facility last week. Staff hosted an open house Thursday June 5 to showcase recent updates and improves made at the facility since it became a certified assisted living center last year. “We’re showing people what we do and we are here to highlight some of the changes and upgrades we have made since adding assisted living,” said Administrator Birdie Nedved. “This gives the community, the residents and their families all a chance to get together.” Staff at the Summit House served up sub sandwiches, chips, cake and root beer floats for guests while Carl’s Band provided musical entertainment in the courtyard. “We have live music once a month,” Nedved said. Grace Kluver came from her apartment at the Summit

House to join some friends for dinner. “I just love it here,” she said. Kluver said she came to the Summit House on a trial basis and enjoyed it enough to stay. “I was only going to stay three months to see if I liked it, I have been here two years now,” she said. Kluver said she enjoys always having something to do because of numerous activity opportunities and likes the easy access she has to her garage. “I have a nice view out to the street too,” she said. Resident Betty Gerde also enjoys being part of the Summit House family. “They take such great care of me,” she said. “Everyone here is just wonderful.”

Noxious Weed Control

The Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board ROW Vegetation Management staff will soon begin noxious weed and brush spraying in the rightof-way adjacent to county roads as outlined in Cerro Gordo County’s Noxious Weed and Brush Control policies. Spot herbicide applications to species identified on the State of Iowa’s noxious weed list will begin in late May

and persist through the summer as sites of infestation are identified. Foliar herbicide applications to small trees and brush within the right-of-way will begin in late July and continue through early Fall. Please use caution when approaching slow moving spray trucks. As a reminder to all Cerro Gordo County landowners, in accordance with Iowa Code 317.4, it is the respon-

sibility of the person in possession or control of any land within the county to oversee the destruction of all noxious weeds growing thereon. Please contact the Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board at (641) 423-5309 with questions about noxious weed identification or control.

The audience enjoys listening to live musical entertainment in the Summit House courtyard during an open house at the facility Thursday afternoon.

Carl’s Band provided the musical entertainment for the open house in the courtyard of the Summit House.

Yard and Garden: Controlling Weeds AMES, Iowa — Complete control of weeds in the home lawn or garden is not a practical goal for many homeowners. A more realistic approach is to minimize weed populations through various control measures. Iowa State University horticulturists provide guidance on weed control methods. How do I control dandelions and other broadleaf weeds in my lawn? Good cultural practices are an important key to controlling broadleaf weeds in the lawn. Proper mowing, fertilization and other sound management practices help establish a thick, healthy lawn.  A dense stand of grass provides few opportunities for unwanted weeds. When broadleaf weeds invade lawns, mechanical and chemical measures can be undertaken to remove or destroy the weeds. 
 Removing weeds by pulling and digging is an effective control option in small lawns or when only a few weeds are present. This method is best accomplished after a soaking rain or deep watering.

 In many situations, herbicides are the only practical method of weed control. Effective broadleaf herbicides include 2,4-D, MCPP, dicamba, triclopyr and others. The most effective broadleaf herbicide products contain a mixture of two or three herbicides as no single compound will control all broadleaf weeds. Fall (late September to early November) is the best time to apply broadleaf herbicides in Iowa. Broadleaf herbicides can be applied as liquids or granules. Before applying any herbicide, carefully read and follow label directions.  How do I control weeds in my garden?  Cultivation, hand pulling and mulches are the primary means to control weeds in the home garden.

 Cultivation and hand pulling effectively control most annual weeds. Perennial weeds are often more difficult to control. Repeated cultivation or the use of herbicides may be necessary to destroy some perennial weeds.

 When cultivating

the garden, avoid deep tillage. The roots of many vegetables, fruits and flowers grow near the soil surface. Deep cultivation will cut off some of these roots. Also, deep cultivation will bring deeply buried weed seeds to the soil surface where they can germinate. Hoe or till around plants or between rows and pull weeds close to plants. To effectively control weeds, cultivation and hand pulling must be done on a regular basis through the growing season. Small weeds are much easier to control than large weeds. It’s also important to destroy the weeds before they are able to go to seed. 

Mulches control weeds by preventing the germination of weed seeds. Established weeds should be destroyed prior to the application of the mulch. In addition to weed control, mulches help conserve soil moisture, reduce soil erosion, prevent crusting of the soil surface, keep fruits and vegetables clean and may reduce disease problems.  
Grass clippings, shredded leaves and weed-free straw are excellent mulches for vegetable gardens and annual flower beds. Apply several inches of these materials in early June after the soil has warmed sufficiently. Plant growth may be slowed if these materials are applied when soil temperatures are still cool in early spring. Grass clippings, shredded leaves and similar materials break down rather quickly and can be tilled into the soil in the fall.  
Wood chips and shredded bark are excellent mulches for perennial beds and areas around trees and shrubs. Apply 2 to 4 inches of material around landscape plantings. These materials decay slowly and should last several years. However, it will be necessary to apply additional material periodically to maintain the desired depth.   To have additional questions answered, contact Hortline, the ISU Extension and Outreach horticulture hotline, at 515-294-3108 or

Group seeks funding for watershed study for local producers and other interest- “This puts together the foundation Rebecca Peter GARNER - A funding request for a study of the watershed around Eldred Sherwood Park at Goodell was presented to the Hancock County Board of Supervisors, Monday, June 9. Terry Kaduce Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Commissioner; Brent Renner, Hancock County Farm Bureau President; and Cale Edwards, County Conservation Director, brought a proposal to apply for a watershed study grant. The Indian Lake Restoration and Enhancement Group has been formed. The group thinks that the time, effort and funds expended on the lake and surrounding watershed will pay dividends Hancock County’s future. The ultimate goal is to apply for funding for restoring and enhancement of the Indian Lake area. The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) will be contracted to collect and assess data concerning land watershed erosion as well as lake management information pertaining to water quality. The Soybean Association in conjunction with Hancock County SWCD will develop the report with the findings of the watershed assessments. The Hancock County Farm Bureau will be utilized as the educational arm of the project, including lining up keynote speakers and organizing meetings

for us to get other grants for longer term [project],” Edwards said. “From my perspective as Farm Bureau, this is a big test,” Renner continued. “We need to prove to the State that we can clean things up here on our own. Otherwise the EPA is going to come in start doing it for us with a broad brush.” “If we don’t do anything, it’s going to turn into a Big Wall Lake – or worse,” Cale Edwards remarked. “We want to improve the watershed as a whole.” “I think it’s going to help Hancock County as a recreational area,” said Terry Kaduce. Elwood Sherwood Park sees significant use by out-of-county campers and others, they noted. Renner said a kick-off meeting for landowners and other interested parties will be held later this summer. Although no formal action on the funding request was taken, Supervisors Sis Greiman and Jerry Tlach were supportive of the project. They cited past county support for Crystal Lake restoration project. Supervisor Ted Hall was absent from Monday’s meeting, due to a conflict.

ed parties. The cost for the initial study grant is $12,250. To date, $11,499 of the cost has been funded by the Iowa Soybean Association, Hancock County SWCD, Hancock County Conservation Board, the Farm Bureau and a grant from Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. They asked county supervisors to consider funding the remaining $751. “The potential for increased usage of the park could be huge,” stated Brent Renner. Renner said the Indian Lake Enhancement Group is brainstorming idea for support for the project. Creating a “Friends of Indian Lake” page on Facebook is one such possibility. “We’re starting to get some steam behind us,” Renner said. “It’s starting to get exciting.” Terry Kaduce emphasized this will be a long-term project. Kaduce said the group hopes to get other entities such as city councils, and other community organizations involved. “It’s not just about the park,” Cale Edwards remarked. The Iowa River is on the Department of Natural Resources’ “impaired watersheds” list. Edwards said the Conservation Department missed out on an opportunity for a $1,400 grant because the watershed wasn’t being addressed. He noted that Indian Lake used to be a good fishery, but that has diminished in recent years because of winter kill and low lake oxygen levels. KLEMME – Street closings and a number of items pertaining to Klemme’s 125th celebration, June 2022, were on the agenda of the June 2 city council meeting. The council approved closing Main Street from 1st to 2nd Street on Friday and Saturday to accommodate entertainment and socializing. The west half will be for band parking availability.

Goodell council to enact water surcharge Rebecca Peter GOODELL - After a lengthy discussion at their June 2 meeting, the Goodell City Council voted to add a $15 surcharge to water bills from the city. The surcharge will go into effect with the Aug. 1 billing cycle. The council will review the surcharge as needed. According to city officials, the water fund has not sustained itself for the past two years. The surcharge is necessary for adequate revenue to keep up with increasing cost of providing water service to the city. The council will consider formal resolution at the July 7 meeting. “We’re trying to get the water fund out of debt,” Mayor Patrick Sweeney said in a later comment. Sewer Update Goodell is facing EPA and DNR clean water mandates to make improvements to their current systems or install an entirely new sewer system. Currently, Goodell homeowners have

be available on certain streets and designated with signs. Golf carts The council voted to allow the use of golf carts on city streets during the celebration as long drivers follow provisions under the Iowa Code. Provisions include the operator must have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance in possession. The cart must be equipped with adequate brakes, have a slow moving vehicle sign, and a bicycle safety flag. Spraying city properties for weeds, painting light poles, repair of the “Welcome Home” arch at the park and painting tables and benches are part of the 125th preparations that are taking place, Ken Weiland, public works director, reported. Street work taking place includes curb repair, painting lines and street sweeping. City hall will be closed on Friday, June 20, to allow the city clerk to help with preparations. In other matters, the council held the third and final reading of an ordinance to a monthly $5 sewer service charge for sanitary sewer service starting in July. The revenue generated by the rate increase will help to offset the costs of updates to the city lagoon system to meet DNR requirements.

septic systems. The city is working with the Yaggy-Colby engineering firm. Mayor Sweeny has been in contact with the engineer, USDA rural Development, and County Sanitation Department. He gave a summary of various options that may be applicable. Sweeny said the DNR has given the council options. One option is construction of a new sanitary sewer system with a lagoon. Another option is upgrading current septic systems to ones that meet the new standards. “They’re expensive for the homeowner,” Sweeny said (about $8,500) but that’s extent of the expense.” “Our financial troubles are not a secret,” he said. ”If you go to an expensive [public] lagoon system, it will get worse. “If you wish to work with the DNR and work out a plan, you can.” he said. The city has identified a potential location for a lagoon. “We have to have it surveyed,” Sweeny said. “We’ll have to see what happens from there.” A town meeting is being planned to answer questions on how the city wishes to proceed. In other matters, Rich Welter, Mosquito Control of Iowa, informed the

council of procedures and spraying information needed for this summer’s spraying. There may be a barrier spray on the north side of town to help alleviate some of the mosquitoes. Residents can help by cleaning eave spouts and small swimming pools on a regular basis. Goodell residents who do not mow their lawns on a regular basis will receive a letter from the city clerk. According to the city code, if mowing is

not done in a timely manner, the city will mow the lawn and assess the cost to the property owner or through the Hancock County Treasurer’s office by assessing the cost to property taxes if the owner does not pay the bill. The Goodell Fire Department’s annual pork loin supper was held Saturday, June 7. Fire Chief Alan Pralle said the old van on the fire department property is used by the department for various phases of training

Field Day planned for June 26

KANAWHA – Nitrogen management, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in agriculture and efficient fuel use on the farm will highlight the spring field day of the Iowa State University Northern Research Farm. The field day will take place June 26 at the south location of the ISU Northern Research Farm. The address is 1040 James Ave. and is located about a mile south of Kanawha on county road R35.   Registration and refreshments will be at 9 a.m. and the field day will start at 9:30 a.m.  A lunch will be served at noon. The field day will conclude at 1 p.m.   Micah Smidt, Northern Research Farm superintendent will begin the field day program. Smidt will provide a season review of the farm.   John Sawyer, ISU Extension and Outreach soil fertility specialist, will discuss spring nitrogen management. Sawyer will talk about research on nitrogen rates, yield effects from nitrogen deficiency and in-season applications of nitrogen.

Mark Hanna, extension agricultural engineer, will discuss recent research on fuel use for crop production. Hanna will talk about ways farmers can reduce diesel fuel consumption during fieldwork operations.   Chris Murphy and Zach Vanderleest, agricultural and biosystems engineering staff members, will discuss technology and legal aspects of unmanned aerial vehicles. This discussion will include legal standards, tips for selecting an appropriate UAV and best management practices for use in row-crop applications.   Angie Rieck-Hinz and Paul Kassel, extension field agronomists, will discuss issues in crop production, including weed control issues, corn rootworm management, and other topics for late June.    Rieck-Hinz is the recently appointed field agronomist for Northcentral Iowa. She will cover the counties of Calhoun, Humboldt, Webster, Wright, Hamilton, Worth, Cerro Gordo, Franklin, and Hardin.

Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District employees Mary Jo Burkgren, Lucus Miller, and Nathan Schmitz, and SWCD Commissioners Dean Stromer and Terry Kaduce recently planted about 30 conifers at the Outdoor Prairie Classroom at Garner. (Rebecca Peter / The Leader)

Sprucing Up the Outdoor Classroom

Another step in the restoration of the 2 1/2 acre Outdoor Classroom, located south of USDA Service Center in Garner took place with planting of Doug-


las Fir, Colorado Spruce, Fat Albert Spruce, Eastern White Pine, Canaan Fir, Techny Arborvitae. A grant from the Hanson Foundation Grant made the tree plantings possible. Mary Jo Burkgren, Hancock Coun-

ty Soil and Water Conservation District employee, said native prairie seed has been planted. In future years the prairie will be mowed at a very high level. “Prairie burn management will keep annual weeds and invasive seedling

species out of the area so the native prairie plants can take hold,” Burkgren said. “This is the first phase of the project. The second phase will begin when grant monies for the project are secured.”

Casey Lake (aka Hickory Hills Lake) Northeast Casey Lake has been good fishing for bluegill, largemouth bass and channel catfish. Casey Lake (aka Hickory Hills Lake) Northeast Bluegill - Good: Fish a small piece of worm under a slip bobber just off of the shoreline as bluegill are on the spawning beds.
