GARNER - Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds learned about challenges facing a Garner industry and how they can help. They toured Stellar Industries on Friday, June 13. Branstad and Reynolds are making good on a promise to tour all 99 counties in Iowa. They are well past visiting two-thirds of the counties already this year. “We do that to visit existing Iowa companies to find what they’re doing what their plans are,” Branstad stated. “What are some of the challenges and problems they have.” “We’re very excited about way things are going,” he said. The state has seen significant improvement economically and the unemployment rate has dropped more than 30 percent. “I’m proud to say we’re going to see significant commercial property tax reduction for commercial and industrial property taxes,” he said. “There will be a 5 percent reduction this year and another 5 percent next year. The total savings is going to be $4.4 billion over the next decade.

News at a Glance

GARNER – A 2002 graduate of Garner-Hayfield High School will be the new elementary principal at Garner. The board of education hired Mike Meyering for the position on June 9. Meyering is a 2007 graduate of the University of Iowa. He initially majored in Pharmacy, but chose to switch majors to Elementary Education with a specialization in mathematics. He studied Educational Leadership at Drake University, and graduated with a Masters of Science Degree in Education (MSE), and Educational Leadership. He holds endorsements as a PK-12 principal, PK-12 Specialist Education Supervisors and PK-12 Evaluator. Meyering taught 5th grade for four years, then 4th grade for two years at Adams Elementary School at Osage, where he also coached 7th8th grade football and assisted with many other sports. Most recently he was PS-4 Elementary Principal at Lincoln Elementary School in Osage for the past year.

Mike Meyering “I have thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed the transition from teacher to principal,” he stated. As a senior at Garner-Hayfield, Meyering had the opportunity to be a “cadet teacher” by assisting teacher Joe Albertson. “I was able to see that teaching could be incredibly fun as well as challenging,” he said. “I also saw the benefits of being a male role model at the primary grade levels.” Meyering became interested in

the elementary principal position at Garner because, “As a teacher, I was able to see the positive impact I could have on students, families, and the community. However, I was only able to affect 25-or-so students and their families per year. “As a school leader, I would be able to influence many more students and families at a time - to have a much broader impact. A child growing up eventually looks for more responsibilities; they may want to get a job or take care of a pet. In the same way, I was to the point that I wanted to take on more responsibilities and spread my wings a bit further. I felt that educational leadership was the next natural step for me.” Meyering’s goals as an educator are, “to be a positive influence on others, to ensure student learning is the focus of every decision we make as educators, and to empower others to be the best version of themselves that they can be.” “Growing up within the Garner-Hayfield Schools has always been a fond memory that my wife and I share,” he continued. “We feel very fortunate to have even had MEYERING to page 15

Vision Committee added to roster of city committees Rebecca Peter GARNER - State Street at Garner is blooming thanks to the volunteers of Vision Committee. Last week, the Garner City Council made the Vision Committee a permanent committee that is appointed by the mayor and approved by the council. The Garner Vision Committee is a committee of volunteers who have been working on various downtown beautification projects including hanging flower baskets and other

plantings. The committee asked council in March to consider making it a permanent, standing committee appointed by the mayor, since much of the grant funding obtained by the committee, goes through the city. The ordinance passed by the city council at the June 10 meeting states the purpose of the committee is to advise and recommend community beautification and enhancement projects to the city council. The seven-member committee will have representation from the city and rural community as recom-

mended by the committee. Projects and activities on city property will be reviewed and approved by the city council. The city may supply funding for projects as the budget allows and the committee will provide written reports of its activities from time to time. The first reading of the ordinance to create the Vision Committee was approved unanimously by the council. Second and third readings were waived. VISION to page 15

ASAP, GAP work to prevent underage drinking and drug use Emilie Jenson The Garner Asset Project, which has helped Garner area and Hancock County youth become aware of the consequences of drug and alcohol use, is presently in the process of assisting the more recently formed Britt-based Allies for Substance Abuse Prevention — ASAP – to become a self-sustaining agency. Presently, ASAP is in the process of searching for a new coordinator following the resignation of former coordinator Brenda Smith, in May. Although not directly employed by the schools, both the ASAP and GAP coordinators have a presence in the West Hancock and Garner-Hayfield/Ventura schools with their office spaces housed within the two high schools. ASAP is a project of the Hancock County Wellness Coalition. “ASAP is just one of their programs,” said Deb Quintus, GAP coordinator. “The coordinator is the staff person, they are housed at the high school, but is not a direct school employee.” ASAP is assisted with funding from a Drug Free Communities Mentoring Grant, which helps provide the director salary. GAP helps mentor ASAP by providing advice and holds joint meetings to talk about progress and share ideas, when organizations such as GAP and ASAP start they are typical-

ly mentored by a more established group with similar goals. “When GAP first got started, we were mentored about 10 years ago by the Mason City Youth Task Force,” said Quintus. In the mentoring stage, ASAP is working to build a volunteer base with representatives from various sectors of the community including groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, healthcare organizations, parents, schools and clergy. They are also forming bylaws and hope to be independent by 2015. “We are still in year one of a two year grant with ASAP,” said Quintus. “Right now, GAP applies and gets their grants and helps them out there, while in mentoring stages you are not able to get your own DFC Grant. We hope that by October 2015, ASAP will be independent.” During a recent meeting at the Hancock County Health System, GAP and ASAP members discussed what they have enjoyed about the present collaboration and what they hope to see come in the future. Members said the have appreciated that so many sectors of the community are brought together for a common cause through ASAP and how GAP and ASAP are two separate entities working together for each other’s success. The ASAP group meets monthly from noon to 1 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month.

Time Management

It was no coincidence that last week’s column was all about Nintendo. With the Electronics Entertainment Expo last week, everybody in my circles has had video games on the brain.

Age of The Geek

Travis Fischer is a writer for Mid America Publishing

E3 is a magical time of year where game developers big and small flock to Los Angeles to show off the games we get to look forward to for the next year. Nintendo, even though they didn’t really have a stage show at the convention, still managed to show up the competition with a slew of announcements. If “Super Smash Bros.” hadn’t already sold me on the Wii U, the tiny taste of the next-gen Legend of Zelda game did. Really, it’s an overdue purchase. There are already at least three games on the Wii U that I’ve been dying to play. For all of Nintendo’s many faults, they do make the best games in the business. The Wii U may not have the same level of 3rd party support that the Xbox One and PS4 enjoy, but Nintendo’s own titles will always eventually make up the difference. With more must-haves coming down the pipeline, it’s getting harder and harder to deny that the Wii U is a system worth owning. I foresee an expensive trip to Best Buy in my future within the next few weeks. And although $300 still seems steep for a console, which is rediculous considering both the PS4 and Xbox One are $100 more (and the fact that I spent more than that upgrading the graphics card in my PC), cost hasn’t been the biggest barrier keeping me from taking the plunge. Sure, after being spoiled by 75% off sales on Steam for so long, spending $60 on a single game is a hard magic mushroom to swallow. The bigger problem is that I’ve been spoiled by Steam’s rediculous sales in a different way. When a game you’ve had an eye on becomes cheaper than a take-out lunch, it’s very easy to amass a collection of games you’ll play “later.” You recent high school graduates out there, take note. There are a lot of

good things about being an adult, but an excess of free time is not one of them. Sure, a 40-hour work week, if you’re lucky enough to get one in this economy, doesn’t seem so bad coming off of an 8:00 to 4:00 school schedule, but don’t let that fool you. There’s cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and a slew of other chores to take care of. Even if you’re already taking care of some of those responsibilities for your household, cleaning up the house is an entirely different experience when it’s your name on the lease agreement. Likewise, grocery shopping is very different when you realize you only have to buy things you like to eat. And while being able to eat ice cream for dinner in the privacy of your own living room is a unique privilege for the newly emancipated adult, that kind of freedom comes at the cost of a lot of free time. Right now there are seventeen games on my PC that I’ve yet to finish, and more than twice that I’ve never even started. I keep adding to the backlog, thinking that someday I will find myself with more free time than I know what to do with. Which is rediculous. I am as single as a guy whose primary social activity is the weekly trip to the comic shop. My only dependents are my cats, a pet known for their self-sufficiency. Unless I win the PowerBall, I’m decades away from having the kind of free time I’d need to get through everything I want to. So yeah, I’m probably going to get a Wii U, but something else is going to have to go to fit it in on the schedule. Maybe less Netflix, or not working on a new video project, or forgetting my place in the book I’m reading. First world problems indeed.

Treasurer urges Iowans to follow Great Iowa Treasure Hunt

DES MOINES – State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald is encouraging Iowans across the state to be on the lookout for this week’s Great Iowa Treasure Hunt publication. “We are currently holding more than $278 million for over one million accounts,” Fitzgerald stated. Fitzgerald encourages all Iowans to check their local papers and see if their name or the name of someone they know is listed. “The more people that know about the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt, the more money we are able to return,” Fitzgerald stated. “New unclaimed property is added every year, so even if you have claimed property in the past, it could be worth your time to search and see if there is new property waiting for you to claim. The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt program has returned over $175 million in unclaimed property to more than

423,000 people since Fitzgerald created it in 1983. Unclaimed property refers to money and other assets held by financial institutions or companies that have lost contact with the property’s owner for a specific period of time. State law requires these institutions and companies to annually report unclaimed property to the state treasurer’s office. The assets are then held until the owner or heir of the property is found. Common forms of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed checks, life insurance policies, utility security deposits, and safe deposit box contents. Visit the unclaimed property database to see if the state treasurer has property belonging to you. Go to to begin your search. Be sure to like Great Iowa Treasure Hunt on Facebook and follow the program on Twitter @GreatIATreasure.

not provide less immunity than if only one vaccine was given at one time. Children are exposed to many foreign antigens on a daily basis and a normal immune system can adequately protect against them. In much the same way, the body’s immune system can handle multiple vaccines at one visit safely with an appropriate immune response. QUESTION: What do you think about alternative vaccine schedules so I can space out vaccines for my child? ANSWER: First, there does not appear to be any benefits from following alternative vaccination schedules. Second, and more importantly, delaying or leaving out important vaccines places children at risk of acquiring those diseases during that time frame. Vaccines are administered at an early age because they are most susceptible to serious consequences if they unfortunately acquire these diseases.

Answers by: Mark Lloyd, DO, providing treatment and care for the whole family at Garner Medical Clinic. QUESTION: How do vaccines work? ANSWER: Vaccines are killed or weakened germs that allow your body to build up antibodies to these illnesses. So if you’re exposed to this illness in the future your antibodies which have already been formed, thanks to the vaccine, can more easily fight the infection and protect you. QUESTION: Is it ok to give my child vaccines when they are sick? ANSWER: I would encourage you to speak with your child’s provider for the best answer. Usually vaccines can be administered during a mild illness, such a runny nose, cough and diarrhea. QUESTION: Do multiple vaccines given at the same time increase the risk of side effects or overload the immune system? ANSWER: Based on available data, it does not appear that administering multiple vaccines at the same time has an adverse effect on the immune system. Giving multiple vaccines does

Madison’s 1st Birthday Summer crafts at Garner library

Teens work at drawing, tracing and coloring in designs on plastic before heating them in the oven to make Shrinky Dinks. Every Friday at 1 p.m. during the summer reading program is an activity specifically for teens in 6 through 12 grades. Next Friday will be a pizza and game day. (Submitted photo)

Teachers on break at West Hancock Emilie Jenson Although the final bell of the 20132014 school year rang nearly three weeks ago, many teachers in the West Hancock School District are still busy at work preparing for next year and learning the latest in teaching trends while students enjoy summer vacation. A group of more than 20 West Hancock teachers spent part of last week in class at the elementary school learning new ways to help teach and improve literacy in their classrooms. “Summer break is a good time for teachers to learn more information, said Ruth Verbrugge, West Hancock Middle School principal. “What we have been doing this week is looking at the Iowa Core and the English lan-

guage standards.” Verbrugge said as part of the curriculum, teachers use the 10 standards of English language. During a class Wednesday afternoon taught by AEA 267 literacy consultant Drinda Williams, teachers learned how to use mentor texts and create discussions and writing projects from classroom readings. “It’s all about picking apart and understanding what they have read,” Williams said. “Using mentor texts we can learn from authors and learn to apply certain techniques to writing.” Verburgge said the training doesn’t stop at the elementary level. “We did a deep investigation into the Iowa Core on Monday,” she said. “This progresses kindergarten through 12th grade; we want all of our students

to graduate as literate individuals and that starts with elementary school.” Andrea Reisma, who taught preschool this past school year and is preparing to move to a kindergarten classroom in the fall, said it is always good to think about how to improve and stay up on teaching skills, even in the summer. “Sometimes you go on hiatus, but it is always good to think about your techniques and learn what went well and how you can do certain things differently,” she said. “We had a break for a few days but now we can dig in and enjoy the summer.” The summer for teachers doesn’t last as long, Resima said. “The beginning of August many of us are back here preparing our classrooms for a new year,” she said.

Second grade teacher Vicki Glawe said she will also return in early August. “We come back early to get rooms ready” she said. “It is nice to have your summer off, but there is always something to be thinking about as teacher.”

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 • The



Klemme alumni artists show, sell work KLEMME - Klemme High School Art Now and Then is the June exhibit at the Jenison-Meacham Memorial Art Museum, 1179 Taylor Ave, Belmond. Meet the artists and enjoy music at an open house 1:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 22 at the museum. KHS alumni and former students LaVohn Josten, Nyla Bridges, Peg McClure Moudy, Jane McClure, and Wendy Jacobson have work on display. Janie Jones, Klemme High’s last art teacher, is also displaying her work. See paintings, photography, pottery, sketches, watercolor, pen and ink, and mixed media. During the open house, enjoy music by Jordan Manus and his band. The band, Harikari, recently completed a tour that included stops in New York City. The band recently hosted a CD

release party in Minneapolis. The band is based in the Twin Cities. CDs will be for sale at the event. Klemme High’s first 10-year class graduated in 1902. The twelfth year class was added in 1923. Although the schools had elementary art as well as band, vocal music and speech for many years, the first junior-senior high school art teacher was not hired until 1966-67. Jacqueline Black, A. Garnas, Olga Duran, John Skare, Diane Morey, Kaye Linda Johnson and Janie Jones were the art teachers before whole-grade sharing began with Belmond. That means one artist, LaVohn Josten, KHS ’57, didn’t have art classes while a student at Klemme High. She credits her 4-H days and being a member of the North Ell Tip Toppers 4-H

Al Bell remembered in Klemme, Friday, June 20 KLEMME - Al Bell’s second daughter, Becky Bell-Greenstreet, will visit Klemme Friday evening, June 20, to talk about her celebrity father. For thirty years, Al Bell, entertainer/educator, traveled to sixty countries over a span of thirty years, bringing the world to thousands of rural Iowa schoolchildren. From 1949 -1979, Bell (and later, his wife Rhea Bell) gave 400 assembly programs a year, driving to school gyms and auditoriums all over the state. “Klemme was one of his favorite schools”, said Becky in a phone conversation with Nyla Bridges in May. “Just like teachers have favorite students, Al Bell had favorite schools!” As a part of Klemme’s 125th anniversary, Bell-Greenstreet, an Oregon resident for the last six years, will host the showing of two Al Bell films and a question and answer discussion afterwards. She will also have her book, “Al Bell Remembered” and the dvd package, which contains 28 of Bell’s travel movies (transferred from 16 mm. to dvds) available for purchase. Some of the most popular films were made in Ireland, Peru, Spain, Egypt, Romania, Scotland, Morocco, Holland, and Kenya. “Al Bell Remembered” will be held 6 p.m., Friday, June 20, in the Community Room in the Klemme Municipal Building. This special Al Bell remembrance in Klemme will follow an “Al Bell Day” at the Iowa Historical Museum on Saturday, June 14 in Des Moines. The Al Bell children donated many artifacts, costumes, original posters, and foreign dolls to the museum, which set up an

Al Bell exhibit on the main floor last December. Films will be shown that day, as well, plus the appearance of the Bell children: Becky, Rhea, Allen and Doug. (The Al Bell exhibit will be on display through the end of this year for any visitors to the Des Moines area.) Nyla Bridges is a 1972 graduate of Klemme High School. She is a travel consultant and lives with her family in Holmen, Wisconsin. Her love of travel was inspired by seeing Al Bell visit the old Klemme gym. She and other alumni have hosted Al Bell events in the past at Klemme Ag Days/ Thanks to a couple of grownup Al Bell fans, “I Remember Al Bell” is a popular Facebook page, where many Iowans and former Iowans write in and post specific memories, what school they went to, and occasional questions which Becky and her sister, Rhea, enjoy answering.

Club for providing early arts training and sparking a lifelong enjoyment of art. After a long and successful career as a public health nurse and educator in the Twin Cities, Josten began taking classes and exhibiting her work. Her website is http://lavohnsart. com/ Some of the work is for sale. Josten is selling her paintings, as well as notecards and prints. Proceeds from Jane McClure and Wendy Jacobson’s sales will be donated to Belmond-Klemme Schools for a ‘friendship bench” for the elementary school playground. Some of Jane Mc-

Clure’s work is on two by two pieces of plywood, inspired by a “Two by Two by You” event she used to take part in in the Cedar Rapids area. Some are collages of items from Klemme. She jokingly describes the work as “barn art” or “garage art.” Anyone with questions can call 651646-3473 or 641-444-4721. The event is organized by the KHS Silver Alumni, who will also host a free dance party at Duncan Community Hall starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 21. Free will donation. Enjoy snacks and then dance the night away. It is open to all.

Guido Gardens, Metter, GA David had no fear of being honest. He faced life with an openness that allowed him to vent his feelings, state his fears, express his desires, and claim God’s promises. “Keep me safe, O God!” is the way David begins Psalm 16. And then states immediately that he, at that moment, came to Him for refuge: “In you I take refuge.” He did not say that he took refuge in God in the past or that he planned on taking refuge in God in the future. Indeed not. Something was threatening him at that very moment and he immediately went to God for help. Sometimes we wait before we go to God with our needs. We believe that we are capable of handling our fears and failures by ourselves. We often think that we can cover up our mistakes and faults. but there is nothing in us or about us that is beyond God’s love, mercy and power. He knows who we are, sees us as we are and understands what we are going through and is waiting for our call for help. The word keep as used in this Psalm can also be interpreted to mean watch over - as a shepherd watches over his flock, or as a guard who keeps watch over the prisoners he is charged to control and contain. David knew the responsibilities of shepherds first-hand. If anything happened to the sheep, the shepherd would be held accountable. He also knew, as a king, that if prisoners escaped, an entire kingdom could be damaged or destroyed. David knew Who to trust.

Psalm 66

Shout for joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name.” Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind! He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot— come, let us rejoice in him. He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations— let not the rebellious rise up against him. Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you— vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble. I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!

Yard and Garden:


AMES — Fresh strawberries, a favorite of almost everyone, are relatively easy to grow and hardy throughout Iowa. Strawberry plants require full sun, well-drained soils and good management to produce abundant, sweet fruit. When should strawberries be harvested? Harvest strawberries when the fruit are uniformly red (fully ripe). Pick the berries with the caps and stems attached to retain firmness and quality. Pinch off the stem about onefourth inch above the cap. 

Strawberries should be picked about every other day in warm weather, every three to four days in cool weather. The harvest period for some June-bearing cultivars may last three to four weeks. Strawberries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five to seven days. Optimum storage conditions are a temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity of 90 to 95 percent. Some of the strawberries in my garden are covered with a gray, velvety growth. What is it and how can it be controlled? The gray, vel-

vety growth on the berries is probably gray mold. It is also known as Botrytis fruit rot. Gray mold is favored by poor air circulation and a high humidity in the strawberry planting. The most commonly infected berries are those touching the soil or other infected berries. 

Cultural practices can reduce losses due to gray mold. Do not fertilize June-bearing strawberries in spring. The application of a nitrogen-containing fertilizer in spring promotes lush, vegetative growth.

Dense foliage slows the drying of the strawberry planting, resulting in a more favorable environment for gray mold. Control weeds in the strawberry bed. Weeds reduce air circulation and slow the drying of the strawberry plants. Mulch the planting with straw to keep the berries off the ground. Berries resting on a damp or wet soil are more susceptible to gray mold.   During dry weather, irrigate in the morning when using a sprinkler. Plants dry quickly when irrigated in the morning.   “Clean-pick” the strawberry planting. Harvest frequently. Pick berries as soon as they are ripe. Handle berries carefully during harvest to avoid bruising the fruit. Immediately refrigerate the unwashed

berries. Berries that exhibit symptoms of gray mold should be picked and removed from the bed. Fungicides are used by commercial strawberry growers to control gray mold. However, cultural practices are the best way to control Botrytis fruit rot in home gardens.  There are small, black, yellow-spotted beetles feeding on my strawberries. What should I do? The small, black beetles are likely sap beetles. They also are known as picnic beetles or picnic bugs. Sap beetles commonly feed on overripe or damaged fruits and vegetables in the garden.  

Sanitation is the best management strategy for sap beetles in home gardens. Keep the strawberry patch as clean as possible through timely picking and removal of damaged, diseased

and overripe fruit. 

Insecticide sprays are available for sap beetles, but they are difficult to use because they are applied to a crop that is ready for harvest or while harvest is underway. If you do spray, use an insecticide with a short harvest-waiting interval and follow label directions carefully.  Why do my strawberries have a slightly bitter taste? The flavor of most fruits and vegetables is influenced by weather conditions. In regards to strawberries, warm sunny weather produces the most flavorful fruit. When the weather is extremely hot, the berries may have a slightly bitter taste. Strawberry plants produce smaller quantities of sugars when the weather is cool and cloudy. As a result, berries are not as sweet when the weather is cool and rainy in May and


Leather rot, caused by a fungal disease, can be a problem in wet weather. Infected fruit have a leathery texture and bitter taste. How long can I expect my June-bearing strawberry planting to be productive? June-bearing strawberry plantings that are well-maintained and renovated annually should remain productive for four or five years. Poorly managed beds may be productive for only two or three years. It’s time to plant a new strawberry bed when berry size and numbers decline.  Horticulturists with Iowa State Univesity Extension and Outreach provide care and management information for the home gardener.

Both interior rivers and area trout streams remain in excellent condition, for further information contact the Manchester District Office @ 563-9273276. 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 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 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 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 A nice stretch of mild weather should continue through the weekend. Area rivers are clearing and again fishable.

stream 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 - Good: Try jigs tipped with a crawler or casting spinner and crank baits for smallmouth as water temperatures warm. Cedar River (Nashua to La Porte City) Northeast Walleye - Good: A jig tipped with half a nightcrawler is a sure bet for walleye this time of year.

Cards Rise in NIC Softball Standings After going winless in North Iowa Conference play a year ago the Garner-Hayfield/Ventura softball team was hoping to show some major improvement in 2014. Two weeks into the season it appears that the Cardinals have made some strides, especially after picking up a pair of league wins last week. The Cards surprised NIC co-leader Lake Mills on Monday and also topped Forest City on Friday. Coming to Garner unbeaten in NIC play, Lake Mills was probably expecting an easy win over GHV on Monday. The Cardinals scored in the first inning to take an early lead but the Bulldogs answered with three runs in the third to go ahead. GHV scored in the bottom of the third inning to stay close and then

tied the score with a run in the sixth. Lake Mills scored what they hoped would be the winning run in the seventh but GHV answered with a run in their half of the inning. After holding Lake Mills scoreless in the eighth, Tiara Van Gerpen reached first on a base hit and then promptly stole second base. Mallory Van Oort followed with a ground ball that the Bulldog second baseman couldn’t handle and Van Gerpen scored the game-ending run on the error. Brooklyn Ossman went the distance on the mound for the Cardinals to pick up the win, scattering 13 hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Payton Bamrick singled three times to lead GHV offensively. Maddie Tusha, Tiara Van Gerpen and Miranda Jackson all added

Pro Shot Basketball Shooting Camp

Students in grades 4-12 who are interested in improving their shooting skills are invited to attend the Pro Shot Shooting Skills Clinic in July. The three-day shooting clinic will be offered Friday-Sunday, July 18 – 20, at the GHV High School (605 W. Lyon St., Garner). The session for boys and girls grades 8-12 will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Friday and Saturday and 1-4 p.m. on Sunday. The session for boys and girls grades 4-7 will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 5-8 p.m. on Sunday. This year’s clinics will devote half the time to teaching the shooting system and the rest to teaching other offensive skills. The goal of the clinic is to help develop much more accurate shooters. Registration is $75 for the three-day clinic and due by July 8. Contact Coach Matt Erpelding at or 515-341-1202 for more information.


GHV added three insurance runs in the seventh to seal the win. Brooklyn Ossman earned the pitching win for GHV as the freshman hurler gave up 10 hits and a walk with six K’s. The Cardinals finished the night up with 13 hits as Ossman and Miranda Jackson each singled three times to lead GHV at the plate. Maddie Tusha and Mallory Van Oort added two base hits apiece while Payton Bamrick chipped in a double. Mackenzie Van Gerpen and Autumn Weaver completed the Cardinal hitting attack with singles. GHV traveled to Algona on Saturday for tournament action. The Cards were scheduled to play two games but an afternoon thunderstorm brought an early end to the second game. The Cardinals did manage to pick up a win in their first action of the day. GHV scored two runs in the top of the first and added another in the second while holding their hosts, Algona, scoreless. The Bulldogs scored two runs in the fourth inning only to see GHV plate four more runs in the sixth inning to put the game out of reach. Algona scored a meaningless run in the bottom of the seventh to make the final score 7 – 3. Brooklyn Ossman added another pitching win to her resume, giving up eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Maddie Tusha and Autumn Weaver each singled twice to lead GHV’s offense. Tiara Van Gerpen, Mallory Van Oort, Ossman, Mackenzie Van Gerpen and Sadhna Ades all chipped in base hits. Cardinal coach Christi Weiser stated that she was pleased with the efforts of her team. ““I’m very happy with the progress our kids made this week. They continue to work and improve and this week it resulted in some quality conference wins, as well as a very good non-conference win.” Weiser is crediting a total team concept for the improved play of the Car-

a pair of base hits while Mackenzie Van Gerpen hit a double. Mallory Van Oort, Ossman and Grace Tusha all added singles for the Cards. Osage is currently contending for the NIC title and Wednesday’s game against the Green Devils was expected to be a challenge. GHV got off to a good start in the game, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning. Unfortunately, that would be the end of the Cardinal scoring while Osage was able to tie the score in the fourth inning and eventually pull away for a 10 – 3 win. The Cardinals were limited to five hits in the game as Maddie Tusha, Tiara Van Gerpen, Payton Bamrick, Brooklyn Ossman and Mackenzie Van Gerpen all singled. Ossman pitched all six innings for GHV, giving up 13 hits and three walks with a strikeout. GHV had plenty of opportunities to outscore Rockford in their non-conference meeting on Thursday, but the Cardinals were unable to come up with key hits with runners on base. The Cards stranded nine base runners in the 7 – 2 loss to the Warriors. GHV bats produced eight hits in the game with Payton Bamrick and Mackenzie Van Gerpen each singling twice. Maddie Tusha, Tiara Van Gerpen, Mallory Van Oort and Katie Oetken all added base hits to the offense. Sydney Childress started on the mound for the Cards, allowing five hits and nine walks with five strikeouts. Jillian Heitland relieved Childress in the fifth inning and fanned a pair of Warrior batters with no hits or walks allowed. GHV got back into the win column on Friday with an 11 – 8 win at Forest City. The Cardinals jumped ahead 2 0 after the first inning and then added four more runs in the third, extending the margin to 6 – 1. There was plenty of scoring through the final four innings as both teams collected several hits along the way. The Indians closed the gap to 8 – 6 heading into the sixth inning but

Cards Drop Three Tight Baseball Games After opening North Iowa Conference play with a win last week, the Garner-Hayfield/Ventura baseball team saw their chances of staying in the top half of the league standings evaporate last week. The Cardinals had three opportunities to pick up NIC wins, but came up short in all three attempts. Monday’s loss to Lake Mills was especially heartbreaking after the Cardinals rallied in the late innings only to see the Bulldogs pull out a win in the ninth inning. Lake Mills scored three runs in the top of the first inning and held that advantage until the Cardinal fourth. GHV plated one run in that inning, but squandered a chance to take control of the game. The Cards had bases loaded for virtually the entire inning but stranded three runners as Lake Mills escaped the GHV rally. The Bulldogs added a run to their total in the fifth inning only to see GHV answer with a run in the fifth and two more in the seventh to knot the score at 4 – 4. The Cardinals stranded the potential winning run in both the seventh and eighth innings before Lake Mills scored three times in the top of the ninth to put the game away. GHV finished the game with four hits with Alek Goll leading the way with a double. Josh Theobald, Braden Meints and Cade Baker all singled for the Cards. Theobald pitched a strong eight innings for GHV, scattering four hits and two walks while fanning eight

Bulldogs. Spencer Shaw threw the ninth inning, giving up a walk and two hits with a strikeout. Wednesday’s game at Osage proved to be equally disappointing. GHV battled the Green Devils through five scoreless innings when Osage managed to score two runs in the bottom of the sixth. That would prove to be the only scoring of the game as Osage maintained the shutout in the top of the seventh to preserve the win. Failure to manufacture a key hit again hurt the Cards as they had runners in scoring positions in the second, sixth and seventh innings but failed to bring them home on each occasion. Spencer Shaw pitched a great game for the Cards holding Osage to only two hits and two walks with three strikeouts. GHV finished the night with three hits as Braden Meints, Cade Baker and Jimmy Ermer all singled. Clear Lake is one of several rated teams that GHV will face this season and the third-ranked Lions proved to be more than the Cardinals could handle on Thursday. GHV played two close innings with Clear Lake but a seven-run third inning for the Lions broke the game open. Clear Lake scored three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings on the way to a 14 – 3 decision. Cardinal bats were only able to produce two hits in the game as Jake Wolf and Cory Boeckman each singled. Holden Hutcheson started on the

mound for GHV, giving up five hits and five walks with three strikeouts. Boeckman relieved Hutcheson in the fourth inning and finished the game with seven hits and a strikeout. GHV saw another close NIC game slip away on Friday as Forest City recorded a 5 – 3 victory over the Cardinals. The Indians drew first blood, scoring once in the second inning but GHV answered with two runs in the top of the third to keep the game exciting. Forest City tied the game in their half of the third and then pulled ahead 3 – 2 with a run in the fourth. The Indians then stretched their lead to 5 – 2 with a pair of runs in the sixth inning. The Cards added a run to their total in the seventh but were again unable to come up with a key hit in critical situations. Jake Wolf drove in two runs on a single and a double to lead GHV at the plate. Josh Theobald and Payton James added doubles to the offense while Cade Baker singled. James pitched five strong innings for the Cards giving up five hits and seven walks with a strikeout. Theobald relieved James in the sixth inning, allowing a hit and a walk. The Cardinals are now 1 – 4 in NIC play and 2 – 12 overall. GHV will host Belmond and Algona on Monday and Tuesday before traveling to North Iowa and West Fork on Wednesday and Thursday. The week will conclude at home on Friday against West Hancock. Box scores from last week’s games

Cardinal Golfers Play at State Coed Meet

Four GHV golfers traveled to Webster City on Tuesday to compete in the State Coed Golf Meet. The event is sponsored by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union and the Iowa High School Athletic Association as a season finale for high school golfers. Two-player boy-girl teams from participating schools play an alternate shot format, with the boys teeing off on odd holes and the girls on the evens. Competing at the event for GHV were the teams of Madee Hejna and Jacob Heinemann along with Kyleigh Slaichert and Braeden Johnston. The Hejna/Heinemann duo completed the day with an 18hole score of 94 while the Slaichert/Johnston pair fired a 101. Accompanying the golfers to Webster City were Cardinal coaches Todd Greiman and Ben

Johnston. Both coaches emphasized that the event is intended to provide a fun day of friendly competition with players from other

schools. The event capped Heinemann’s career as a Cardinal golfer while Johnston, Hejna and Slaichert will

be returning to the links for the Cardinals next season.

MEYERING from page 1 the option of returning! When the opportunity arose we knew that this would be the perfect way to give back to the community that prepared us for a successful life.” “For myself, I most look forward to working in such a premier school district. Garner-Hayfield has so much to offer for being a small community - and so much to be proud of! I look forward to continuing many of these wonderful things, as well as opening new doors of possibility!” Meyering’s wife, Kim (Nedved) Meyering is a 2003 Garner-Hayfield graduate. She holds a degree in graphic design from the University of Iowa and owns her own graphic design business, K•Meyering Design, LLC. The couple has an 8-month-old son, Jace, who is looking forward to spending a lot of time with his grandparent, according to Mike. VISION from page 1 The council also dissolved the Pool Park Shelter House Committee. The committee was originally created several years ago to work with the Garner Lions Club to raise money, design and construct a new shelter house at Swimming Pool Park to replace the one that was taken down during construction of the aquatic center. Due to the projected high cost of the project (in excess of $125,000) the Lions Club has decided not to pursue the shelter house project. The $15,000 the city originally set aside in a Pool Park Shelter House Fund to match the Lion’s Club’s fundraising to build the shelter house were

re-appropriated to assist the Garner Chamber of Commerce mobile stage project. In other matters, the council tabled action on a proposal from Gerald Pederson to amend the subdivision covenants to allow single attached garages on twin homes in Hejlik’s 2nd Subdivision, until letters were send to other Subdivison property owners involved. •Approved a request from the Chamber of Commerce to close State Street from Cottonwood to 3rd Street on for Chamber’s Fall Festival, Saturday, Aug. 23, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. •Amended the fiscal year operating budget ending June 30, 2014, to accommodate refinancing the swimming pool bonds. •Approved the final payment of $22,427.17 to North Iowa Septic Solutions for the Storm Sewer Intake Replacement Project. •Discussed city ordinance 69.074 that prohibits parking on or across sidewalks. The consensus of the council was to keep the ordinance, but to allow the Garner Police Department to use their discretion on enforcement under certain circumstances. MOTORCYCLE from page 1 was drawn and he happened to be there,” said Dewey. “We asked Bill if he wanted to say anything and he said he liked what Retrieving Freedom was doing for veterans and their families and that he wanted to give it back.” Broshar, whose son died of cancer four years ago, is actively involved in Hope For Brad, the organization created in his son’s memory to help fund research and genetic testing for cancer

awareness. He said he knows personally what it means to be supported by the community and the importance of giving back. “It just seemed like the right thing to do,” said Broshar. Dewey described the chance winning as divine intervention. “It was just an emotional roller coaster of divine intervention, to have someone as generous as Bill win,” Dewey said. “I know there were two or three veterans we had there with tears in their eyes along with myself.” Following the concert, Keith autographed the front fender of the Harley. Dewey said they plan to continue touring with the motorcycle for one more year to promote Retrieving Freedom, along with Hope For Brad. “We are talking about what we can do to help bring more public awareness for Hope For Brad,” said Dewey. “Our goal is to showcase the motorcycle for one more year and have it back on stage again for Blake Shelton at next year’s Tree Town Festival. “ Dewey said that they are unsure at this time if the motorcycle will be raffled or possibly used as an auction item in the future, but he knows either way the awareness it will continue to bring both organizations. “Even if we don’t make any more money from it, it is going to bring so much awareness,” he said. A benefit fundraiser is planned for Hope For Brad, with a golf outing to take place Saturday and a concert featuring country artist James Wesley on June 28 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock County Fairgrounds in Britt.



Country music star Toby Keith autographs the motorcycle, raffled off by Retrieving Freedom and won by Bill Broshar, of Kanawha. Broshar donated the cycle back to the organization, which trains service dogs for veterans, to help them continue raising awareness of their organization, as well as the local organization Hope For Brad.

Thomas Maltman reads an excerpt from his book “Little Wolves.” Maltman, a featured author with All Iowa Reads, spoke to a group at the Britt Public Library Friday afternoon about his book, its characters and the inspirations behind each story, experience and character in the novel.

KLEMME – “Quilting is an addiction – but a good addiction,” says Joyce Allendorf owner of Wash Tub Quilts in Klemme. “Everyone has their go-to activity and for me, it’s quilting.” Wash Tub Quilts opened for business this spring. The shop is located at 101 E. Main, in the former Par Products building. Allendorf has been quilting for about 15 years. “I finally took a class and got hooked on it like a lot of people,“ she said. “I always joke that the manufacturer put a chemical in the fabric that when you touch it, you get this addiction.” Wash Tub Quilts specializes in reproduction fabrics, flannels, homespuns, brushed cottons, and fabric collections with a traditional style. Reproduction fabrics mean prints and patterns that were popular during Civil War era through the early 1900s. “There’s been a resurgence of interest in period fabrics because of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War,” she explained. “I’m trying to stay in that corner.” Depression Era reproduction fabrics and patterns from the 1930s are also popular. Wash Tub Quilts carries novelty, whimsical, primitive fabrics. Designer collections include Kansas Troubles Quilters by Lynn Hagemeyer, Barbara Brackman, Kim Diehl, Primitive Gatherings and Whimisicals by Terri Degenkolb. “I’m trying to go after patterns you don’t find in other shops,” she noted. Wash Tub Quilts carries some home décor items such as antique bobbins, baskets and magnets. Allendorf has some items on consignment. Allendorf plans to offer a variety of quilting classes and “project” classes. “No matter how skilled a quilter is, if you offer the right class, they will take it,” Joyce said. “I’m trying to do is give [quilters] new ideas and different techniques of doing things.” Chicago to Klemme Moving to Klemme from Chicago 2009 was a welcome change of pace for Joyce. A former business analyst for United Airlines, Allendorf was ready for a life change. The airline was also going through some financial struggles
