Grundy Center, Iowa $1.00 Newsstand Price

Revamped academy a rousing success By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — More than 50 local fourth- through eighthgrade golfers and prospective golfers had the chance to learn from one of their former peers last Thursday and Friday at the first revamped Grundy Center Golf Academy. Kyle Olson, a Grundy Center High School graduate who now makes his living as a club professional in Bonita Springs, Fla., came home to donate his time to the Academy and was joined by 10 other GCHS golf alumni as well as high school girls’ golf coach Rick Schupbach, who pioneered the academy in 1997. “I thought it went excellent,” Olson said. “It exceeded my expectations. The level of instruction, the cooperation of the kids … they were all very interested in learning and trying to get better.” “I don’t think it could have gone better,” Schupbach said. Schupbach said 51 kids were part of this year’s academy, a few more than in past years. He said there were also more of the older-level kids than in the past few years. “We were heavy with sixththrough eighth-graders, which had been our lower range,” Schupbach said. “It felt like in the past the older kids felt like they’d already been through it before.”

This year’s camp was set up with several stations and coaches at each one. Kids learned the finer points of driving, iron play, chipping and putting as well as rules and etiquette of the game. “We talked about the basic fundamentals of golf, and the level of instruction changed based on the age,” Olson said. More than the game itself, however, he said the most important lesson the kids learned was that the game is about more than themselves. “We were all doing this for free to give back to the community,” he said. “Mr. Schupbach talked about all of the instructors and their accomplishments, and I think it opened their eyes how many state championships there were. They saw us all caring enough about them that we were willing to give up our time to help them.” Olson said he was impressed by the talent of the kids at the academy. “It surprised me how much talent there is in Grundy Center,” he said. “A lot of it is raw talent, but there is a willingness to learn. “I could tell they wanted to be part of the tradition of Grundy Center golf,” he said. “I saw their eyes light up when Rick talked about me being a golf pro and about Jocilyn Onnen’s See GOLF ACADEMY page 2

Empty hallways all that remain for VanderPol By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — Steve VanderPol wandered into the hall outside his office Thursday morning. Gone were the sounds of students walking between classes, talking about their date the previous Saturday and why the B-minus they received on their algebra test was so unfair. There was no sound of lockers and no smell of lunch wafting from the cafeteria. Nineteen years as principal at Grundy Center Junior-Senior High School was enough. More than three decades teaching and serving in school administration was enough. All that was left were memories. “ It’s just been a great run … absolutely a fabulous run because of the staff, students and community I work with,” he said. VanderPol came to Grundy Center after two years teaching at East Central High School and 10 years teaching and serving as a building principal at Ackley-Geneva.

“Grundy Center was progressive and held themselves to do the right things,” he said. “It was ‘Do it with class or we don’t do it at all.’ That’s the progressiveness of the community. Of all those things, was the attraction.” He was coming to serve as high school principal after a challenging time as a 6-12 principal at A-G. Ironically, his position in Grundy Center evolved to a similar role. “I always tell people that the reason I knew I had to do something different (than Ackley-Geneva) was when I had just gotten upset, had a one-sided conversation with a senior and then a sixth-grader did something with a locker, messing around, and I got angry with him. It was two separate things and I did a lousy job of dealing with that at that time. They’re different — I can’t treat a sixth-grader like a senior … I did a terrible job and that was kind of a trigger point.” Since coming to Grundy Center, VanderPol said he has worked

hard to build relationships with the school’s teachers, students and parents. “It is the single most important thing you need to have,” he said. “In any organization, in any single thing you do, if they don’t trust you … you’ve got nothing. If you don’t trust the person you’re not going to follow them anywhere. If they trust you, you’ve got a shot. “One of my favorite stories is a girl that never took an art class until spring of her junior year,” he said. “You had to take an art class before you graduated, and she fell in love with it and now has a degree in graphic arts. Things like that where you can offer different things to different kids are important in a small school.” VanderPol said the best times are when he sees that student who graduated years before come up to him, even for a quick visit. “I saw one at graduation, his See VANDERPOL page 10

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — When Grundy Center fifth-graders return to class next fall, they will have brand new lockers and classrooms … a place so new that the carpet will smell fresh off the sales floor. The new space on the south side of Grundy Center Junior-Senior High School will have a much greater purpose than classrooms, however. It will create a safety area unlike that at most other school buildings in Iowa. The school’s tornado safe room is on target to be completed at least by the scheduled Aug. 6 completion date. Cassi Murra, superintendent in Grundy Center Community School District, said the room is on pace to be completed even a little early if the weather holds out. Last week Cardinal Construction of Waterloo began putting the core deck on the facility, which is built to withstand winds of 250 mph and to be able to resist a 15-pound 2 x 4 board traveling 100 miles per hour. The facility’s walls and ceilings will be 18 inches thick and enforced with rebar. Murra said the tornado safe room plan came about as the need for more classroom space became apparent. The District applied to FEMA for funding and received approval last year. Construction began in October and stopped for the winter before restarting in March. When completed, the facility will consist of three fifth-grade classrooms as well as smaller classroom space for Middle School special education and talented-and-gifted programs. The current fifth-grade classrooms are being converted to Middle School science rooms. The facility’s $1.2 million cost funded is being split by FEMA and the school district. FEMA-eligible expenses, including the tornadosafe area, are $803,000, 85 percent of which comes from FEMA and the remainder from the school district. The district is also responsible for the cost of fixtures and furnishing the structure as well as for the vestibule that will connect the safe room to the main school building. In the case of emergency, Murra said it will take less than two minutes to evacuate the main school into the safe area. The area will have a rated capacity of 483, easily enough to accommodate the 400 people who are at the junior-senior high on an average day. The building will be available for the public to use in case of emergency when school is not in session. Murra said a likely scenario is that law enforcement, first responders and some school personnel will have access to keys to the building and would open it in the event of an impending crisis. One of the things people have asked, Murra said, is if students at the nearby Grundy Center Elementary will also be evacuated to the building if the need arises. “Elementary students will not try to get there,” she said. “Being a couple of blocks away, the risk of having them in transition is too great. If the community ever supports doing an addition to that building, I would encourage them to do a tornado shelter for those students.” Regular school construction cost averages about $75 per square foot, according to Murra, while construction of a tornado safe area costs between $125 and $150 per See SAFE ROOM page 2

Grundy NEWS Register Golf Academy

From page 1 multiple state championships and about Ryan Kiewiet being an AllAmerican in college.” The students got to see Grundy Center’s tradition with their own eyes during the banquet following Thursday and Friday’s instruction as all 15 Grundy Center state

championship trophies (13 girls and two boys) were on display. During the banquet, which was required attendance for those wishing to get their fees from the academy back in scholarship form when they graduate from high school, Olson, Cassie Nelson and Kirby Schmidt spoke about the virtues of golfing at a

young age and about the importance of supporting the local golf club. “Hopefully (the golfers’) parents could see that it’s a family atmosphere and about growing as a person as well as about growing as a golfer,” Schupbach said. Schupbach said the academy would not have been possible without

the support of the Town and Country Golf Club as well as sponsor GNB. Since the academy started, it has awarded 256 scholarships worth approximately $23,000 to students who have been part of it when they graduate from high school.

From page 1 square foot. Grundy Center’s facility will be one of just 40 such structures in the state, 33 of which are located at schools. According to a story in the May 6 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, eight of the projects, including Grundy Center’s are still under construction. Many of the structures are in the area, with two in Black Hawk County and one each in Butler, Bremer, Tama and Benton

Counties. According to the story, total cost of the 40 facilities is $42 million. “It’s probably one of the things I am most proud of,” Murra said of the facility. “I was in the area when Parkersburg and New Hartford were hit and got to walk through it. Being in the area and knowing that we needed construction space. it was worth the hours and the time and the energy to help put that application together.”

Local races uncontested in primary Local voters favor Ernst, Branstad in statewide races

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — With no contested county races on the ballot, local Democrats and Republicans had only to share their opinions on several contested state races in last Tuesday’s primary election. The state’s most contentious primary was one-sided in Grundy County, with Joni Ernst earning 66.7 percent of the local vote on her way to earning the statewide nomination. Sam Clovis was the second choice of Grundy County voters, though with just 13.8 percent support, while Mark Jacobs had just 13.1 percent support in third place. Statewide, Ernst finished with 56.1 percent of the vote while Clovis had 18 percent and Jacobs 16.8 percent. Ernst will face Congressman Bruce Braley in the Nov. 4 general election. Braley, who ran unopposed on the Democratic ballot, received support from every Grundy County Democrat who voted in the race. Statewide, Braley received more than 99 percent of votes cast. Gov. Terry Branstad earned the Republican nomination to run for reelection as Iowa’s governor, winning overwhelmingly over national political activist Tom Hoefling. Branstad garnered 83 percent of the statewide vote and 79.5 percent of votes cast in Grundy County. He will face Democrat Jack Hatch in the general election after Hatch ran unopposed for the Democratic nomination. He received 99.3 percent of statewide votes cast and every vote cast in the race in Grundy County. On the county side, Republicans nominated Harlyn Riekena for Board of Supervisors District 2, Mark Schildroth for Supervisor District 4, Brenda Noteboom for Treaserer, Travis Case for Recorder and Erika Allen for County Attorney. Each will run unopposed in November’s general election, as no local Democrats sought the position. If elected, Case would replace retiring County Recorder Chuck Kruse while Allen would replace County Attorney Kirby Schmidt, who did not seek reelection. OTHER STATEWIDE PRIMARY RACES were unopposed. Pat Grassley earned the Republican nomination for the District 50 seat and will face Grundy Center Democrat Doris Fritz in the general election. Bill Dix earned the Republican nomination for the State Senate District 25 seat and will run unopposed, as there were no declared Democratic candidates for the seat. Brad Anderson won the Democratic nomination for Secretary of State and will face Republican Paul Pate in the general election after both ran unopposed for their nomination, while Republican Bill Northey won the nomination for Secretary of Agriculture and will face Sherrie Taha in the general election. Republican Mary Mosiman will face Democrat Jonathan Neiderbach in the general election after both ran unopposed in their respective primaries. Democrat Michael Fitzgerald will run unopposed for the State Treasurer position after he was the only candidate from either political party to take out papers for the primary, while Democrat Tom Miller will run unopposed for Attorney General as the lone declared candidate.

Albert met and married the love of his life Helen McMaster. In almost 60 years of marriage, there was hardly a cross word between the two. Albert’s family will always remember him as a modest, yet hard working and determined man. Albert was a good man and great husband and father. He enjoyed playing pool, bowling and shuffle board.

Albert was preceded in death by his parents; four siblings; and son, Todd Brandl.

As we get into the heart of summer, it’s time to start thinking about summer vacations. Whether you have a cabin in Minnesota where you like to get away or just motor to the river for a couple of days, its great to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I have called myself a nomad on more than one occasion in these paragraphs, and there’s a good reason for that — I really don’t have a hometown. While that’s hard to understand for those of you who grew up in and around Grundy County (or even Iowa) and have been here all your life, I can tell you it’s a unique feeling. And it’s not just me; it was also my parents. After growing up in Massachusetts, Dad went to college in Indiana, and he and Mom have lived in Illinois, Vermont, Ohio (twice) and Florida since then. The great thing about Mom and Dad having grown up elsewhere is that it made for a natural vacation, and we went about every year until I was in high school. Both my sets of grandparents had summer places in one of the northern East Coast’s better vacation areas, Cape Cod. The Jensens lived on a nice lot near Eastham (just beyond where the hook of the Cape turns north) and mom’s parents had a summer home less than an hour’s drive away, near Yarmouth (pronounced Yahmoth by the locals — there’s no such thing as an R in the New England dialect). Though we stayed with the Jensens when we visited (they had a little more room than mom’s folks), we always spent a lot of time with both. Those visits were about the only time that I saw aunts, uncles and cousins, who still to this day live in or near New England. The trips I remember were from Michigan and Ohio — they were long trips, but not unbearably long. We would always take two days, though with today’s improved roads and faster speed limits, it wouldn’t be that hard to make the Ohio to Massachusetts run in a single day. Dad did all the driving, as Mom wasn’t fond of driving interstates (and isn’t to this day). My job was to keep myself occupied with the many books and puzzles we would always bring along. One of my favorite ways to pass the time was the license plate game — simply seeing how many states I could spot. You could find most states east of the Mississippi River pretty easily as well as states of the upper Midwest like Minnesota, Missouri and even Iowa (back in the time when Iowa was a foreign land to me). Larger states of the West like California, Texas and Colorado weren’t all that uncommon, nor were

An Iowa Lynching By SUE ECKHOFF

Letter to the editor This letter is in response to former Farm Bureau president, Craig Lang’s guest column in The Courier, “Clean Line Project Good Investments in Iowa.” Mr. Lang, what is ‘trumped-up” with over 2,000 landowners having an easement forced upon them through eminent domain by a few billionaire investors? Granting a franchise to the Rock Island Clean Line project would set a terrible precedent for a non-regulated, non-public, private company to use the power of eminent domain. Could it be that RICL is using you and your “Windward Iowa” company as a ruse to promote this project to the public? Did you think we would forget that in February when you announced the start-up of your company, you said you were not going to take a stand on the Rock Island Clean Line project? Now, you are touting the project as the best thing since sliced bread and you are wholeheartedly supporting it. If RICL is so willing to work with landowners as you say, then why has RICL been so unwilling to release its business model? What are they trying to hide? If this is such a great project, why have over 1,000 landowners filed objections with the Iowa Utilities Board? Wind farms can be built anywhere in the U.S., this long haul transmission line is not necessary.

the eastern provinces of Canada. If you caught a rare state like Wyoming, Oregon or Alaska, that was a treat. Though I took it for granted back then, because it was all I knew, I now realize how wonderful a place we had to visit. Grammy and Gramps (the Jensens) had a place within walking distance of Cape Cod Bay and access to a private beach that was ideal for swimming. Many people I know in Iowa have never been to the ocean, and just seeing it would be a big deal. Cape Cod Bay was an extension of the ocean ... the ocean itself was maybe a 10-minute drive away. Life on the Cape is a shockingly different culture than you’ll find most places. Particularly when you get toward the eastern end of it, Cape Cod almost has the feel of a large fishing village, not unlike our farm towns of the Midwest. Both my grandfathers loved to fish - Gramps had a small boat and a lobster license, with pots in one of the harbors that we would pull while visiting. He and Dad knew the good spots to dig clams as well. My other grandfather spent much of his free time fishing as well, though I’m not as sure where he went or what he fished for. Fresh seafood was another thing I just took for granted until I got older — it was something we had (whenever we vacationed at least), so I figured everyone had it. Though Dad loved his lobster and clams, they were not my favorites, though there was plenty of other seafood that I enjoyed. Someday soon, maybe even next summer, I want to return to New England to see some of those things again — things Mom and Dad pointed out that I kind of shrugged my shoulders about, the way an 11-year-old does. There were a lot of things I took for granted that I wouldn’t as an adult. • • • I’d like to take a few minutes this week to congratulate a couple of members of our team for reaching their one-year anniversary with our company. Rob Maharry’s anniversary with The Conrad Record was last week, while Lisa Kanagy’s anniversary here at The Register is later this month. I couldn’t be happier for both of them. Rob isn’t somebody you see a lot here at The Register, but he is someone I work really closely with. I can honestly say that he’s the best news partner I’ve worked with ... both here or anywhere else. Rob’s position with The Record is similar to mine except that he does all of the sports for that paper (which covers only one school district) and covers some of the smaller towns around the area a little differently than we do. I’ve had the chance to mentor him and teach a little, and he’s done a good job learning on the fly. I’ve told him all along that this job gets easier the second time through. Good news my friend ... you’re to that point. Lisa stepped into Joyce Wardall’s spot when Joyce retired last year and is the person most likely to greet you when you come to our office. She takes care of our classified ads and many other smaller accounts, while also helping with a variety of office-related duties. This is her first time working with a newspaper, and she’s caught on well. Joyce did so much for us, a lot of which our publisher, Clint, and I don’t know how to do, and that’s all stuff that Lisa’s had to learn ... much of it just by looking back and seeing what was done in the past. One of the fun things about newspaper work is that it’s rarely the same thing from day to day — we never know what challenges we’ll face. Lisa’s done a great job catching onto things and has brought some fresh new perspectives to things as well. Congratulations to both these people.

Bernard Schnell, Parkersburg

Grundy County Heritage Museum In its early years, Iowa had some wilder days. A story of those days is recounted in the lynching that occurred near Harlan, Iowa in the 1870’s. A young man was caught and his companion killed by a posse in Buck Grove in Shelby, County, after they had murdered a Marne, Iowa man. A crowd of around five hundred gathered at the edge of the woods after the capture, and demanded a hanging. A rope was placed around the fugitive’s neck, and he was taken to a large bridge for the execution. Just then, Sheriff Rainbow of Shelby County, rode up and talked to the crowd, asking that the boy be allowed to stand trial and for the law to take its course. Seeing that this was probably not going to happen with the mindset of the crowd, Sheriff Rainbow decided to outsmart them. He stood on a wagon in the middle of the bridge and announced he would take a vote. All those who were for hanging were to gather at the east end of the bridge, those against it were to gather at the west. Then, as the crowd moved to the east to vote for lynching, the sheriff lashed the horses into action, and with the frightened young man, took off in the opposite direction, safely beating the crowd to Harlan, where he quickly lodged the young man in the county jail. However, the sheriff’s quick thinking was to no avail. Late that night a chanting mob stormed the jail, carried the struggling youth to a nearby woods, where in the eerie light of a full moon the boy was struck up to the In the eyes of frontier Iowa, justice had been rendered, and a wrong avenged at the end of a length of rope.

Question: Why celebrate Flag Day? Answer: 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. Question: What does the U.S. flag symbolize? Answer: 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.

Center theatre’s Reel-to-Reel Beginning at the Center Theatre on Friday, June 13 at 7 p.m. will be Farmland, running approximately 80 minutes in length. At 7:30 will be the action/sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past, starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry and Patrick Stewart. This movie is rated PG-13 for violence, running approximately 120 minutes in length. There will be no matinees this weekend. Farmland is a must-see movie for all of us living in the “bread basket of the world.” Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Farmland will take an intimate look at the lives of farmers and ranchers in their ‘20s, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming business. Through this film from award-winning Director James Moll, you’ll step inside the world of farming and learn about their highrisk/high reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve. This film, made with the generous support of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, highlights the ever-changing conditions of an industry that demands modern efficiencies and points out that about 90% of all food grown in America comes from a family farm. And families are what you will see in Farmland; fathers

and families are a major theme in the movie and watching the close relationships between generations is one of the film’s pleasures. Farmland will educate and celebrate farming and its important roll in feeding millions; a history and heritage that we are accustomed to in the agricultural state of Iowa! The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “XMen: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past in order to save our future. X-Men: Days Of Future Past combines characters from all recent versions of the XMen which results in a star-studded, action-packed epic movie adventure! Stars include Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Lucas Till, Michael Fassbender and many more.

Fishing Derby Report – A Great Day KEVIN WILLIAMS Grundy County Conservation Director Saturday, June 7 was the day. Grundy County Lake was the place. The annual Fishing Derby sponsored by Peoples Savings bank was another success. Just over fifty people of all ages registered for the event. For their five dollars they weren’t guaranteed a fish but they pretty much were guaranteed a door prize and a free hotdog. It seems that most fishing derby dates have included rain. This year was no exception with a skyburst just before noon. It only lasted a short while and then folks were back out wetting their lines again. The people in the boats were already plenty wet by the time lines were cranked in and anchors hoisted, etc. so many of them just stayed out and weathered the storm. It threatened for a second time at the presentation of awards and door prizes but all in all it was near perfect conditions. Most of the morning (which started for many at 5AM) the lake surface was smooth as glass. Whether you were fishing from a boat or the shore, it was an enjoyable time. The fishing platform was full of people. The fishing jetties were full of people. And scattered up and down the shoreline were you guessed it – more people. Most were registered in the event. Some were just out chasing the elusive big one and enjoying the day.

You see, while most of the people participating had their fishing licenses with them, they weren’t required to do so due to the fact that it was the Iowa’s Free Fishing Weekend. At the 1PM close of the derby, the following anglers won their respective largest fish categories: Panfish – Heidi Kucera, Bass – Justin Staley, Catfish – Kevin Johnson. Heidi’s fish was a respectable 8.96 ounces (just over ½ pound). Justin’s bass weighed 1.71 pounds. Luck was with Justin that day because at the end of the competition, a 2.44 pound bass was brought in for measurement but that angler hadn’t registered for the event. He was just out enjoying the fishing. Kevin Johnson’s catfish won with a weight of 6.76 pounds. Kevin is no stranger to the fishing derby winner’s circle having won largest bass in a previous year’s event. Our fishing derby event was also the same day as another famous derby – the Belmont Stakes. California Chrome did not complete his attempt at the prize. Perhaps Kevin will be attempting to win his own triple crown at next year’s event and go full out for the largest panfish. Each of the winners received an impressive fishing gear package tailored to their fish category which included rod, reel and other gear. Everyone went away with a door prize and good memories. That’s what the fishing derby is all about.

Fear Not!

What is the root of all evil? Some say selfishness, and Saint Paul said it was the love of money, but perhaps it is really just fear, since fear is at bottom the unwillingness or inability to trust God. While we should be a bit dubious about reducing everything, especially something as complicated as sin or evil, to one simple thing, the more we reflect on this the more we see that fear does indeed reside at the basis of many sins. Consider how greed (or the love of money) derives from a fear that our future will be destitute and that money will somehow guarantee our security. Negative emotions like jealousy and envy are often borne of the fear that we will lose our loved ones to more attractive or talented rivals. Anger is quite often just fear that has turned outward: the startled response to a slammed door is quickly replaced by anger directed at the door slammer. But, perhaps this is as it should be: anger and fear are appropriate at the right time and place, and when tempered by reason and mercy. Perhaps no one thing is the root of all evil and perhaps there are many roots of many evils. Greed is one thing, while fear and anger are another, or to quote Joseph Butler, “everything is what it is and not another thing.” - Christopher Simon

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 ******************************************************************************************

Fishing at Grundy County Lake D-NH high school honor roll

By DIANE PAIGE Dike Correspondent It is 6 a.m. Saturday, June 7 and the Grundy County Conservation team has set up camp. Fishermen, women and kids signed up for the chance to catch the top fish in three categories: bass, catfish and bluegill. Approximately 55 contestants took part in the derby. The weather at 6 was great and a little rain before the 1:00 deadline didn't scare away any of the contestants. The fish didn't get fried so hot dogs were served . Time spent at the lake works up an appetite.

As fish were caught they were taken to the shelter for measurement and weighing. The largest of each category was kept alive in the tank and at the 1:00 hour the winners were announced. The really fun part is when each kid at the lake get a fishing equipment prize. Some won fishing poles, tackle boxes, fishing nets and lures. Happy faces on all. It was a grand day at the Lake and we look forward to the event each year. Kiss that bass!!

All kids win.

Golf Greats

It was the week of State golf in Marshalltown. The six member team with coaches Mike, Dan and Tim, loaded bags of clubs, balls and tees and all the right attitudes. It was good going all day Monday and at the end of the first day the Dike New Hartford team of Ashley, Bri, Abby, Maddi, Nikki and Katie were 26 strokes ahead of the other 2 A teams. Coaches were smiling and the girls were looking forward to another fun day on the course. Tuesday at 9 am the girls had their score cards and started their search for birdies, pars and bogies. Nerves were running high as there were many spectators watching and following the 6 groups of foursomes. Parents, siblings, grandparents and nephews and friends from town were applauding good shots and were allowed only visible encouragement. Rules do not allow any form of communication with players at any time. Once the 18 holes of play had started and not until the score cards were turned in at completion could verbal congratulations be shared. Each foursome had a two person chairman following to make sure rules were followed and also helped any player look for a lost ball. This kept the play moving at a steady pace. As a spectator, I witnessed 6 golfing girls from Dike New Hartford show great composure and skill and each welcomed the words of encouragement from any one of their three coaches. The coaches were allowed to talk to their players any time from tee box to their shot on the green. Once the players ball was on the putting surface the coaches could not offer any suggestions and could only watch the golfer make winning putts. Ashley Dumler and Bri Weber were in search of taking first place this year in the individual category. These two girls shot golf rounds

in the 70's but looked to their team mates to keep the team score as low as possible. Hard work and concentration brought low scores to the score board, just what was needed on Tuesday to make the Dike New Hartford girls golf team winners. Coaches watched as scores were recorded and cards turned in and spectators waited anxiously for the opportunity to celebrate with happy players. The golfers are required to walk the course carrying their full bag of clubs, balls water and or energy bars. Pull or push carts are permitted and many of the girls did us the carts to conquer the hilly American Legion Course of Marshalltown. Others elected to use the back strap and carry the bag and equipment weighing as much as 20 pounds. One golfer finished her round of golf with a happy ending by having her best round of the day and as she approached the waiting coaches, her bright smile when approached by coach Mike, turned into a flood of happy stress free tears. As team members found each other and shared winning smiles, more tears flowed. Each girl very happy with the excitement of being involved in an exciting win. The scores were calculated but the girls knew they had just made Dike New Hartford History in being the number one team. Winning the state title in 2 A golf and they received the number one trophy for 2014, along with individual metals and plaques. So proud of these girls and coaches: Seniors Ashley Dumler, Maddi Brummond, Abby Camarata, Juniors Bri Weber and Nikki Weissenfluh and Freshman Katie Camarata. Mike Soppe, Dan Schmitz and Tim Kopriva.

Community Health Grants Available from GCMH Foundation

Local non-profit organizations and school districts are eligible to apply for new Community Health Grants to be awarded by the Grundy County Memorial Hospital Foundation. The grants are available for new or existing projects that address specific health needs in the service area of Grundy County Memorial Hospital, which includes all of Grundy County, southern Butler County, eastern Hardin County, and northern Tama County. Grant requests should address at least one of four specific areas of community health, which include: improving access to health care, chronic disease management, disease prevention, and wellness, which is defined as activities designed to support healthy behaviors and to improve health outcomes. “The Foundation is eager to encourage innovative methods of improving the ongoing health concerns of our rural areas. The hospital’s Community Health Needs Assessment identified four major areas that need to be addressed, and we’re hopeful that the grant program will help stimulate creative ideas and programming in addition to the programs the hospital is working to implement,” says Keely Harken, GCMH Foundation Development and Community Outreach manager. Funds to begin the grant program were raised in the Fund A Need portion of the GCMH Foundation’s Gala & Auction, held in February. The first round of grant requests are due August 1st, 2014, and will be awarded September 1st. Organizations may contact Harken for more information and grant application forms.

school because he took an active part in every area: academics, athletics, fine arts … He knew how to be firm and tough, and yet any student knew he cared.” “VP was a (great) boss,” High School science teacher Todd Rohler said, referring to VanderPol by his nickname. “He always made sure you had what you needed, and wanted the best for kids. VP was also never afraid to look foolish in front of the kids (homecoming week), even though he always claimed to hate homecoming and prom.” “Mr. VanderPol was a kind, caring principal who always put the kids first,” Resource teacher Vicki Murphy said. “It was great working with him the past 17 years, I considered him not only my boss but my friend and I will miss him. Good Luck VP!” “Steve never failed to truly see the individuals among his student and staff,” High School English teacher Betsy Kuecker said. “He was also able to see talent and potential among others long before they did. And he was just plain fun to be around. He was a lovely boss.” Teacher and Athletic Director Rollie Ackerman said VanderPol has had a part in every part of school life over nearly the past two decades. “ He has been visible and actively involved in activities and the growth of academic opportunities for all our students and school,” he said. “He has provided consistent leadership and more importantly, true servant leadership to the Grundy Center community.” Bockes, who works with students at the District’s alternative high school said VanderPol’s influence on students who have been challenged in unique ways has been remarkable. “Over 100 students from the surrounding school districts and Grundy Center have received high school diplomas that very possibly would not have, she said. “He cares about the future for these students and has always been concerned with getting students “work skills”. I am very grateful for his confidence and trust in me and the great opportunity to work outside under Mr. VanderPol’s leadership.” But the highest praise came from VanderPol’s final boss at Grundy Center, Superintendent Cassi Murra. “Working with Mr. VanderPol has just been an incredible experience,”

she said. “He brings so much wisdom. He is extremely well respected among his peers and, whether its watching him on stage say words at graduation or at an assembly, when he talks to kids it comes from the heart and he does a very nice job of sticking very true to his values and what he believes in. “I would doubt you would find very many people at all who would have anything negative to say about Mr. VanderPol because he truly does what he says he’s going to do and its all about caring,” Murra said.

VanderPol From page 1 brother was graduating, he had graduated 13 years ago, and he just walked up to me and said ‘What are you doing; how come you’re getting out right now?’,” he said. “It’s very rewarding to watch those who move on or those who move up.” VanderPol admitted that doing paperwork is one of the things he’s liked least about being an administrator. “I enjoy working with the teachers and students much better than being in my office,” he said. “What are you doing in the future? How are you going to get there? What’s going wrong? How are we going to fix it? How are we going to do it together? What are you thinking about doing? That’s with student and the parents, too; issues they are having raising their children.” One of the biggest changes to education, VanderPol said, has been dealing with students who might not have the best success and attitude about school. “Twenty-four years ago, when I started as a principal, we did a horrible job — we just got rid of them,” he said. You kicked them out, expelled them or ‘encourage them to drop out’ because this isn’t working. “That wasn’t smart thinking at the time, that was stupid, but that was what you were supposed to do? It accomplished what? Nothing,” he said. Today, VanderPol said every effort is made to find the right place in the world for those students. “Everybody has strengths, and hopefully we can find something from their strengths that they can do. I don’t care whether that’s being a salesman or pushing a broom … I don’t care what that is. What are your strengths, and we try and tie that with how can you make it through. “Now it’s whatever it takes,” he said. “Alternative programs, at-risk programs, technical programs … there’s something for everyone.” THOSE WHO HAVE KNOWN VANDERPOL best, those who have worked for him at the school, had nothing but great things about him. “Mr. VanderPol would take the time to see the whole student,” Western Outreach Center teacher Beth Bockes said. “He really was the perfect administrator for our small

VANDERPOL SAID THE SCHOOL will be in good hands next year when longtime GCHS teacher Ann Lebo moves into his former role. It was VanderPol who originally approached Lebo about getting certified to be an administrator. “I approached Ann six years ago and said ‘You need to go back to school and get your master’s in administration,’” he said, noting that her first reaction was that he was crazy about the idea. “‘No, you need to,’” he told her. Lebo moved into a role as parttime high school Dean of Students last year and became full-time assistant principal this year, working under VanderPol’s leadership. Earlier this spring, Lebo was named VanderPol’s successor as secondary principal. “She’s a sponge,” VanderPol said of Lebo. “I can show her so many different things. We talk constantly about how I handle things, how she wants to handle things, and we keep bouncing that off each other. That will make the transition so much smoother for everyone.” He said the final year has been extremely rewarding … but difficult at the same time as he watches others prepare for next year while he watches from afar. “It’s very hard not to be involved,” he said. It’s like, ‘Can I just be done?’ Decisions are being made for next year and I’m not part of those, and that’s hard. I remember that vividly 19 years ago at Ackley — I hated April. It’s the same. April was … you’re close to being done, but. Now it’s fine. It’s close enough and it’s fine.” The 57-year-old VanderPol said he has yet to decide what he wants to do next with his life, but indicated he hopes to still work with young people. He also indicated that he and wife Barb plan to stay in Grundy Center. “My family was raised here, all my daughters graduated from here and Barb and I are very proud of that,” he said. Murra said she expects that VanderPol will remain active in the community and possibly even some school-related groups and activities. “I think you’ll see him continuing to be active with kids and in organizations,” she said. “I’m excited to leave,” VanderPol said. “It’s going to be OK walking out the door. It’s been fun.”

Enjoy Conrad’s Black Dirt Days Friday, June 13 - Downtown Conrad

Wissmann family to conduct Black Dirt Days Community Worship Service in Conrad June 15 Conrad’s Black Dirt days 2014 will come to a delightful close with a community worship service conducted by the Loren Wissmann Family of Milford, Nebraska. Church congregations in the BCLUW School district, as well as members of the general public, are invited to join in this service of music, fellowship and praise. The service will take place on June 15 at 10 a.m. in the BCLUW High School Auditorium Hailing from the Midwest, the 15-member Wissmann Family have spent the past 12 years delighting audiences nationwide with their uplifting blend of gospel bluegrass music. Featuring Loren, Gloria, and nine of their 13 children, each concert is filled with tight vocal harmonies, award-winning bluegrass pickin’ and memorable family moments. Filling their home with life and laughter, the 13 Wissmann children

range in age from 32 to 7 years: Rachel, Ruth, Josiah, Bethany, Andrew, Elizabeth, Matthias, Stephen, Hannah, Susanna, Alaythia, Nathanael, and Charissa. Due to marriage and job responsibilities, four of the older children no longer tour with the family. Traveling in their 45 foot bus, the Wissmann family annually share their musical talents with an average of 200 services each year throughout 35 states, Canada and Mexico. Events have ranged from church services to conferences, conventions, county fairs, retirement parks, Christian schools, and prison ministry. They have performed at the National Bible Bee, the National Homeschool Convention, and completed three Christmas seasons in Branson, Missouri. Each family member is an essential part of each concert, singing in harmonies and playing a wide

variety of instruments, including: guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, dobro, harmonica, fiddles, hammered dulcimer, cello, flute, and keyboard. The variety and creativity in their musical arrangements is a refreshing blend ranging from toe-tappin’ bluegrass to orchestral elements. In addition to pursing musical excellence, the Wissmanns purpose to make each concert about more than musical talent and variety. It’s a showcase for their genuine passion to share the hope and promise found in Jesus Christ. The music and message provide a powerful kaleidoscope, reflecting the joy and purpose found in Christ. Area residents of the BCLUW communities and the surrounding area will not want to miss the opportunity to experience these unique elements that make each concert an unforgettable family experience!

Tractor pull back for another year at Black Dirt Days By ROB MAHARRY The Record CONRAD- A classic tradition is making a continued comeback as Conrad’s Black Dirt Days celebration will host a tractor pull for the third straight year this weekend across from the Mid-Iowa Co-op on Main Street. Event organizer Stacey Hines said that she and her husband have enjoyed traveling to other communities in the extended area such as Zearing, Cedar Falls and Belle Plaine to watch and participate in tractor pulls and figured it might be worth trying in Conrad. So far, she has received an overwhelmingly positive response. “We thought we’d try to bring

it back and see if there was interest there, and everybody seems to like it and ask for it again,” she said. Tractor pulls have seen something of a resurgence in the last five to 10 years, and Hines is hopeful that the event can continue to grow in Conrad after dreary weather conditions suppressed the turnout last year. The competitors vary greatly in both the size of the tractors used and their level of commitment, with some using stock engines and others greatly modifying theirs to increase the horsepower and pulling capacity. Hines believes that the event can draw a different crowd of people that may not otherwise be as interested in the Black Dirt Days festivities. “I think the best part is getting

those different people into town, and not only that but hearing the people in town talk about for days after it happened and wanting to see it again next year,” Hines said. “The first year going into it, we had no idea what everyone’s reaction would be, and it ended up being so good that they asked us to do it again.” Hines believes that the pull only adds to the overall Black Dirt Days experience and is looking forward to another year. “I always enjoy the parade,” she said. “All the different food, the bands, fireworks, and it’s just fun.” Registration for the pull begins at 8:00 A.M. on Saturday morning, and the event begins at 9:00 A.M. All pullers are welcome to compete.

Note: Contaminants with dates indicate results from the most recent testing done in accordance with regulations. DEFINITIONS Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) – The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) -- The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. ppb -- parts per billion. ppm -- parts per million. pCi/L – picocuries per liter N/A – Not applicable ND -- Not detected RAA – Running Annual Average LRAA – Locational Running Annual Average IDSE – Initial Distribution System Evaluation Treatment Technique (TT) – A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. Action Level (AL) – The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) - The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. SGL – Single Sample Result TCR – Total Coliform Rule GENERAL INFORMATION Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water posed a health risk. More information about contaminants or potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. DIKE WATER SUPPLY is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT INFORMATION This water supply obtains its water from the limestone and dolomite of the Devonian aquifer. The Devonian aquifer was determined to have low susceptibility to contamination because the characteristics of the aquifer and overlying materials provide natural protection from contaminants at the land surface. The Devonian wells will have low susceptibility to surface contaminants such as leaking underground storage tanks, contaminant spills, and excess fertilizer application. A detailed evaluation of your source water was completed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, and is available from the Water Operator at 319-989-2291. CONTACT INFORMATION For questions regarding this information or how you can get involved in decisions regarding the water system, please contact DIKE WATER SUPPLY at 319-989-2291. Decisions are made at the city council meetings held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm and are open to the public. Please note: This report will not be mailed to individual customers.

Since my children have been home from school I think that there has been about 4 batches of homemade ice cream made. We have this great ice cream maker that has an insert that you freeze so there is no ice or salt to use. So, very easy for my children to use. The question always is ‘what flavor today’? Vanilla beats out all due to the fact that with our family we all like something different, figure that, right? However, we run out of chocolate syrup quite quickly then and who wants that hfcs on their yummy homemade ice cream? Following is the easiest homemade ice cream and chocolate syrup we have found that satisfies everyone. Of course this is all pretty quick so we can have our treat after supper. Remember to email any of your recipes to me at or mail them to our office, I would love to share them here. Here’s to enjoying the summer with homemade ice cream and chocolate syrup! ≈ Lisa K.

Iowa Fishing Report

Casey Lake (aka Hickory Hills Lake) Northeast Bluegill are in the shallows on area lakes as the spawning season is upon us. Largemouth bass fishing is heating up also as we approach summer water temperatures. Interior rivers are in excellent shape right now. Trout streams remain in excellent condition, for further information contact the Manchester District Office @ 563-927-3276. 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. Casey Lake (aka Hickory Hills Lake) Northeast Largemouth Bass - Good: Try casting spinner or crank baits, rubber worms along the dam or off of the jetties for good action. Plenty of bass ranging in the 13� to 16� size range. Casey Lake (aka Hickory Hills Lake) Northeast Channel Catfish - Good: Try fishing off of the old beach area with stinkbait, nightcrawlers or leopard frogs for some trophy catfish. Late afternoon, early evening has been the best. Cedar River (above Nashua) Northeast Scattered showers are forecast for the weekend. Area rivers are turbid and unfishable but don’t let that stop you from exploring a trout stream. Lakes and trout streams are in good condition. For more information on water levels, please visit this website at http://waterdata.usgs. gov/ia/nwis/rt. Call 563-927-5736 for daily stocking information. For more information, please call the Decorah Fish Hatchery at 563-3828324. Cedar River (above Nashua) Northeast Visibility is poor due to recent rainfall and flows are up. Cedar River (above Nashua) Northeast Channel Catfish - Slow: Anglers are picking up catfish using a hook tipped with dead chubs, cut bait, stinkbait or night crawlers. Cedar River (above Nashua) Northeast Walleye - Slow: Walleye are hit-

ting worms and minnows. A jig and twistertail is also working.

There have been good reports of channel catfish, smallmouth bass and walleye being caught in Black Hawk county. Cedar River (Nashua to La Porte City) Northeast Walleye - Fair: A jig tipped with half a nightcrawler is a sure bet for walleye this time of year. Look for current breaks below wood structure or rocky shoreline areas for walleye. Cedar River (Nashua to La Porte City) Northeast Channel Catfish - Fair: A nightcrawler or dead cutbaits fished upstream of logjams or below riffle areas on the bottom has been productive for channel catfish this time of year. Cutbaits have seemed to be the bait of choice recently. Cedar River (Nashua to La Porte City) Northeast Smallmouth Bass - Fair: Try jigs tipped with a crawler or casting spinner and crank baits for smallmouth as water temperatures warm. Decorah District Streams Northeast Scattered showers are forecast for the weekend. Area rivers are turbid

from page 18

By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent ACKLEY – The Grundy Center softball team closed out the week with a strong defensive performance despite a 3-1 loss to Class 1A No. 6 AGWSR on Thursday. Earlier in the week the Spartans dropped four games in double headers at West Marshall and South Tama. Jessica Ackerson and Alyssa Mathews connected for the only Spartan hits against AGWSR pitcher Ashley Sicard at Ackley, Ackerson with a triple and scoring a run.

Kayla Mathews went the distance on the mound, striking out one and walking none. In the nightcap West Marshall scored four runs in both the first and the third on their way to a second win with a much bigger spread, this time 12-4 over the Spartans.

APGC soccer season ends with loss to No. 2 Nevada

Spartan baseball team wins two, drops one By PATTI RUST Sports Correspondent ACKLEY – The Grundy Center baseball team moves to 3-5 with wins in two of three games this past week. A late rally earned the Spartans a 16-4 win over AGWSR Thursday, after splitting games with South Tama on Monday. The Spartans batted around and scored nine runs in the top of seventh to quickly turn a 6-4 game into a big 16-4 win at Ackley Thursday. Jordan Clapp fueled the Spartan offense with two home runs, the first coming in the third inning scoring three runs and putting Grundy Center up 4-0. The second came in the sixth and scored two, bringing the score to 7-4 Spartans. In addition to two hits and five RBIs, Clapp scored three runs and also pitched the win, striking out 10 batters and walking two in six innings. Bryce Moats pitched the bottom of the seventh, striking out three Cougar batters to secure the win. Moats also contributed in a big way offensively, with three hits including two doubles, two runs batted in, and three runs scored. After a slow start offensively at South Tama, the Spartans found their rhythm at the plate in the second game of a double header, scoring 10 runs on nine hits to avenge a loss in the opening game with a 10-3 win over the Trojans. Jordan Clapp went 3-for-5 at the plate and scored four times and Bryce Moats went 2-for-4 with three stolen bases and four runs. Braidan Buhrow and Jared Clapp both collected two hits and two RBIs. Grant Weldon pitched the win, striking out two and walking three in three innings on the mound. Moats struck out four and walked three, also in three innings, and Jordan Clapp struck out two and walked two in the seventh. In the opening game at South Tama the Spartans scored one run in the first but went scoreless the remaining six, suffering a 9-1 loss to the Trojans. Bryce Moats and Grant Weldon hit twice, Weldon scoring the only Spartan run. Austin Burroughs took the loss, striking out four and walking three in just over four innings of pitching. The Spartans were scheduled to host South Hardin on Monday, play at Hudson on Wednesday, and host Gladbrook-Reinbeck on Thursday of this week.

Next to score was Union on an outside shot that sailed into the goal making it 4-3, but with only minutes left to play G-R held on to take the upset win 4-3. Rebel goalkeeper Bailea Evenson recorded 13 saves on the night, and the Rebel defense limited the Knights to just five shots on goal.
