Wakeboarding is highlight of Bible camp The Twin Lakes Christian Center conducts four-day summer Bible camps that provide a variety of fun activities with the highlight being the sport of wakeboarding, which combines elements of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing. The Christian Center operates two camps during the summer with other youth organizations conducting their own camps during the summer, using

the Christian Center’s facilities and lifeguards. The different sessions accommodate a wide age range of youth and teach wakeboarding techniques for beginning and intermediate skill levels. The Bible campers stay at the facility and the daily schedule includes Bible study. Some of the kids get an early morning start to their wakeboarding, before Bible

study and before breakfast. There are other recreational activities for those not out in one of the three boats used for wakeboarding. When rainy whether prevented the campers from going out one day last week, the indoor activities included dodge ball, basketball, rock wall climbing and an indoor version of paintball.

According to information from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation - On Thursday, June 19, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Agents, along with an Iowa State Patrol Tactical Team, and Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputies, executed a search and arrest warrant for 53 year-old Thomas Henderson of Lake City. Based on investigative findings, sufficient probable cause was developed to file charges. Henderson was arrested and taken into custody without incident at an apartment building in Lake City. Henderson is charged with two counts of first degree murder in connection with the deaths of Tammie Lee Devore, 48, and Karl Allen Devore, 30, both of Glidden. On Sunday, May 18, 2014, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 of an unconscious individual at 129 Carroll Street, Lot #5 in Glidden. Upon arrival and through further investigation, law enforcement officials discovered Tammie Devore and Karl Devore deceased at the residence. Thomas Henderson is currently being held in the Carroll County Jail. Carroll radio station KCIM reported on Friday further information regarding the investigation that led to the arrest of Henderson: “Investigators with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation found a knife blade, black knife handle and a knife labeled ‘yoshiblade ‘ in proximity to the body of Karl Devore during the

Thomas Henderson investigation into the murders... The evidence was sent to the state crime lab for analysis. The DNA lab report showed blood on the blade and handles of the knives that matched that of Karl and Tammie Devore but also found unknown DNA in a mixture on the black knife handle. The unknown DNA was run through the state database and came back unknown. It was then run through a nationwide

database and came back with a match from California to Thomas Guy Henderson who was residing in Lake City. Henderson has previous criminal convictions in California which led to the DNA match.” The investigation continues into this case. The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Lake City Police Department assisted with the investigation.

Rockwell City plans building condemnations By Ken Ross At the June 16 meeting of the city council of Rockwell City, council members indicated that their patience has run out regarding a number of unsightly and dangerous properties in the town. According to City Clerk Kelly Smidt, the council members reached a consensus on having buildings torn down. Some of the building were formerly residences but all are currently unoccupied. One nonresidential property that the city has been trying to get repaired or removed for years is the former Martin Motel on High Street, which is actually a group of cabins that has been unused for a long time. Smidt said she has contacted the owner, Don Laing, in Florida. Laing sought answers to a series of questions regarding what is expected but the council members felt no need to provide a more detailed response than already provided through years

of working with Laing. Another non-residential property is a substantial brick building known as the Courtyard, located at 312 Court St., owned by John Niedowics of Lohrville. About two years ago, Niedowics bought three properties that were already on the city’s list of properties to be eliminated. In addition to the Courtyard, he obtained a house at 308 Pleasant Street and another property on Richmond Street. He has transferred ownership of the Richmond Street property to someone else but has communicated to the council that he had plans for the other buildings. The council decided there has not been sufficient progress on either building. A different property owner had requested an extension for work at 712 5th St. Since that property was new to the list this year, the council granted the requested extension until Sept. 1. Properties for which condemnation

are going forward include 141 Lewis St., a Washington Street property, 521 Lake St., 107 Pleasant St. and 709 6th St. Some properties have been taken off the list because the owners have either repaired or demolished the property. *** Vision 2020 honored Rockwell City as one of 16 Iowa entities (cities and counties) to achieve gender equity on appointed councils and committees (elected positions are not included in the equity assessment).

Smidt explained that precise equity cannot be achieved on each public body since they have odd numbers of members but each public body is as gender balanced as possible as is the total number of board and commission members. *** Dave Hardin has revised plans to start an ice cream business across from the courthouse square. He plans to start an ice cream business in the city park near the swimming pool by July 1. The city will work with him to try to make this happen.

Last joint school board meeting held By Ken Ross The South Central Calhoun, Rockwell City-Lytton and Southern Cal school boards met for the last time in joint session on Monday June 22. Superintendent Jeff Kruse said that the RCL and the S.Cal boards will each need to meet separately one more time in July to release assets to the SCC district. Kruse said each of these meetings should only last about five minutes. The RCL Board consists of Mike Sexton, Roscoe Simpson, Brad Assman, Jo Grodahl, and Ron Maulsby. The S.Cal Board consists of Jim Brown, Mark Schleisman, Ann Gemberling, Judy Hungate, and Larry Irwin. The South Central Calhounl Board consists of Jim Brown, Mark Schleisman, Judy Hungate, Mike Sexton, Roscoe Simpson, Brad Assman and Ron Maulsby. *** The SCC board approved putting a Public Education and Recreation Levy (PERL) on he ballot in September. The 13.5 cent per $1,000 taxable valuation would be used for recreational expenses such as playgrounds and playground equipment. The referendum would need a simple majority to pass and remains

in effect unless it is voted out by the public. *** Ron Kalous informed the board that new Department of Transportation requirements are making it difficult to recruit bus drivers, already a difficult task. Anyone who holds a CDL license, including bus drivers as well as truck drivers, needs to meet the same kind of requirements regardless of type of job held. This includes memorization of parts of the DOT manual to be recited back word for word. This is not so much a test of knowledge of the material as it is a test of rote memorization ability. Bus drivers will likely be required to take a inconvenient and costly ($3,000) sleep apnea study. This is an impractical requirement for bus drivers and the kind of fatigue caused by sleep apnea is not as likely to be an issue for bus drivers as for long-distance truckers. *** The board approved a one-day lease agreement with the Pomeroy Knights to use the football field on July 12. The board approved plans for the installation of a security system on a separate building that houses weightlifting and other gym equipment.

Celebration coming to Lake City Cowgirls and cowboys of all ages will be having fun at the Western Days in Lake City, which will include activities on the square and at the rodeo grounds on June 28 & 29.

Warning to politicians voters are listening If adults discuss ways to persuade children through deceptive psychological tricks, they should not do that in front of the kids and expect the deception to be effective. Politicians don’t openly discuss strategies to deceive the public in front of the voters but the voters are not children. They can see a prolonged patterns of rhetoric not matching deeds. That caused former U.S. House of Representatives majority leader Eric Cantor to lose a primary contest for the Republican nomination to college professor Dave Brat. Cantor threw big money at the campaign, about 10 times what Brat spent, yet during the campaign as well as outside the campaign, he treated his constituents like easily manipulated children, not particularly bright children at that. Pundits fell into the same pattern, talking between themselves as if it didn’t really matter that the unsophisticated voters were listening, because voters are powerless to resist preconditioned Pavlovian responses to the political noises being made in their direction. National news media have documented Cantor’s open musings about the need for more effective marketing of the Republican message, while Cantor showed no indication that there was any actual substance to that message. Cantor’s home district is an easy commute from his physical and spiritual home in Washington, D.C., yet he had little contact with his constituency and seemed to be focused on achieving higher national status with the unspoken but clearly communicated slogan, “I stand for nothing other than personal political advancement but I’ll try to seem like I stand for whatever achieves that goal.” What was most offensive about Cantor’s well financed campaign was a false attack ad against Brat. David Wasserman of the Daily Caller, reported, “Cantor’s decision to attack Brat as a ‘liberal college professor’ and ally of Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine was immediately called out by as inaccurate, and most voters with access to Google could have found out in seconds that Brat wasn’t the least bit liberal and hadn’t advised Kaine. The ad barrage not only generated curiosity about Brat, it may have created sympathy for him.” In the immediate aftermath of Cantor’s shocking defeat, the immigration issue was described as the reason for the defeat but polling data showed this issue was not that significant. The lesson from Cantor’s loss is that legislators need to respect constituents. That involves being honest, caring about issues and caring about people. Voters may

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm From River Rat to Union Negotiator

Five-year-old Renae Roberts looked up from the mile-long rows of soybeans. The sun was beginning to scorch, and the mosquitoes and heat made it difficult to breath. The machete she was using to chop volunteer corn, its split handle wrapped in black electrical tape, was blistering her hand. Renae’s twoyear-older brother, Steve, was ahead of her, swinging his machete like a golf club, volunteer corn flying. She could see his lips moving, and knew he was cussing, something never allowed at home. Their clothes were soaked from dew, but in another hour it would be too hot, and they could quit for the day—go swimming off the sandbar in the Mississippi. That morning, their mother had set the clock ahead an hour, tricking them into getting up and out into the field early. A rotten trick, if you asked Renae, but effective. The year was 1959. Renae had to urinate. Steve was far enough ahead that he couldn’t see her, if she hid in the beans. She broke off a button weed leaf, its velvety underside would do for toilet paper. She had just squatted down when she heard a noise behind her. She froze. Someone or something was coming. If Steve was up to one of his tricks, she would pelt him with dirt clods. The sound grew closer. A head poked through the bean rows. It was Billy, her pet raccoon. Renae also had two pet squirrels that had been blown from their nest in a storm. She bottle fed lambs on the back porch, and got her hand pecked while gathering eggs. She would witness her mother beat the odds against cancer and survive until she was 80. Renae and Steve were the sixth generation to live on the family farm, five miles east of Kingston, near Meeker’s Landing on the Mississippi River. Renae’s great grandfather had built and lived in a log cabin on the farm. He had a sawmill and was a well-known dairy farmer. Every day, he would take his milk across the river in a rowboat to Oquawka,

Renae, 1959 Illinois, because it was closer than driving to Burlington. Renae’s mother, riding a horse five miles one way, was the first in the family to go to high school. Renae would be the first to graduate from college, going first to what was then Burlington Junior College, then Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant. On Sundays the family would visit friends and relatives. There was never a call ahead to let them know you were coming. You just showed up. The visit always included a tour of the yard and garden. With a trowel or spade in hand, slips of plants were dug and given as gifts, a show of friendship. No “thanks” were ever mentioned. German stock didn’t show emotion. The tour was a walk of remembering, a memorial garden. “This was Melba’s.” “This was Aunt

Martha’s. She had the most beautiful peonies.” Fast forward to today. Renae is the big six-zero. She lives in Illinois, but often returns to Burlington to be close to home and the river. Renae has spent 23 years in the Chicago area as an elementary-school teacher, and 15 years in the teachers’ union as a negotiator. She is thankful for her river upbringing and believes it equipped her well for a career in education and interest-based bargaining/problem solving. Like on the river, you have to read the signs. Where are the currents? Where are the holes? If you get your hand pecked by a cranky old hen, do you wring its neck, or leave it alone to lay another day? If your crops are wiped out by flood, tough it out until next year. Take care of the less fortunate, and empower them. Work and survive. Their lives on the river were filled with sayings: “It’s time for mushroom hunting when the Redbud leaves are as big as squirrel ears.” “If you can see the underside of the leaves, it’s going to rain.” Her knowledge base is invaluable. All directions were given from the river. When you’re young you want to get away. When you’re old, you return. Renae and her husband, Bob, trowel and cardboard box in hand, traipse the old homestead, a Century Farm, and dig slips. Her mother had the most gorgeous dark red ruby peonies that were handed down from her great-great grandmother, maybe further. The peonies will look great at Raven Rock, their lakeside home in Dixon, Illinois (she had to be close to water)—a bit of the farm and her mother in their own front yard. Have a good story?

Ross Rambles By Ken Ross, Graphic-Advocate Editor

reject the views of a politician. However, rejecting an incumbent, especially in a primary, usually results from the politician not being straightforward with constituents. Voters tend to be understanding of office holders changing their positions over time as long as the changed positions appear sincere rather than simply the result of political expediency. Hillary Clinton recently tried a convoluted and awkward refusal to acknowledge she had ever opposed gay marriage. This got airplay as an evasion that was damaging among the liberal core she needed. In a subsequent interview, she acknowledged that she had evolved on that issue, which resolved that question and allowed her to move on without further awkwardness. When changes in position are frequent or without credible explanations, the positions are seen as insincere expediency. In recent years, some politicians haven’t felt the need to avoid appearing insincere. I think this is a losing strategy but that fact has not yet been sufficiently demonstrated in this age of open and positive discussion on psychological manipulation of the electorate. In one of the 2012 Republican presidential candidate debates, Newt Gingrich defended the use of covert assassinations of foreign enemies, stating the action would have “credible deniability.” Gingrich either had not thought this through or did not care that if he became president, that statement would prevent him from having credible deniability when a foreign enemy was assassinated. Actually, the statement would prevent Gingrich from having credible deniability of anything, establishing Gingrich as having no reluctance to provide false information whenever the need arose. Mitt Romney thought he was talking only among like-minded Republicans at a fund raising dinner when he was recorded saying, “There are 47 percent… who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the

government has a responsibility to care for them.” He did not make the statement as an official public position but it is worth noting that the statement was made in the presence of workers catering the event, obviously regarded as dimwitted non-entities unable to understand the sophisticated conversation among the grownups in the room. Former vice president Dick Cheney is described as conservative but he has long been supportive of same-sex marriages, such as the one between his daughter Mary and her partner. When his other daughter, Liz, challenged an incumbent Wyoming senator for the Republican nomination, Liz felt the need to take a position against same-sex marriage in order to appeal to social conservatives. Both Liz’s father and mother joined Liz’s side in rejecting a position they previously supported. Liz’s candidacy for the Wyoming senate seat failed miserably. This failure resulted from much more than the gay marriage issue, but Liz’s willingness to sacrifice her sister for the sake of expediency will likely have the most haunting future effect, not only on family relations but on any credibility Liz might need. John McCain, although an avid supporter of military intervention, has expressed genuine humanitarian views about warfare, opposing torture and advocating the closing of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. However, after the capture of terrorist Ahmed Abu Khattala, McCain supported the Republican mantra that the Obama administration can do nothing right. McCain criticized Obama’s decision to bring Khattala to the U.S. for trial in civilian court. McCain advocated sending Khattala to Guantanamo, a facility he supported closing years ago. Americans don’t all share the same political convictions but they do expect their politicians to have some.

The Graphic-Advocate


June, 1969 45 Years Ago Cub Scout Den 2 recently visited the Graphic office accompanied by their den mother, Mrs. Gordon McIlrath, and Mrs. Wyatt Osburn, her assistant. They were Scott McClintock, Joe McIlrath, Ricky Snyder, Dave McCaulley, Don Osburn and Jamie Zimmerman. Nineteen members of the 1969 graduating class of the Lake City Community High School were recognized for scholastic honors at Commencement exercises here Wednesday night, May 28. Each student maintained a B average (3.0 or above) during the four years of high school according to Principal Allan Lyons. On the honor list were Beverly Baumann, Kim Blair, Jane Ann Bradley, Carol Carlson, DeAnn Carstens, Connie Deuel, Deborah DeVries, Kenneth Friedel, Ray Hildreth, Susan Johnson, Sharon Karstens, Cathy Lasher, Cynthia McCuen, Carolyn Mathews, Kathryn O’Tool, Tim Reaman, Patricia Steig, Kathleen Stephenson and Kathleen Troxel. The new flag pole in the City Park was put into use for the first time last Thursday. The finishing of the base has not yet been completed as plans for a memorial plaque are pending, according to Gail Boyd, park chairman. Work is now in progress on the fountain in the center of the park and is expected to be completed by the middle of the month, Boyd said. Mr. and Mrs. Don Mimnaugh and family, Mrs. Bess Mimnaugh, Mr. and Mrs. Pearl DeHart of Ames; Mrs. Chalmer Peterson and son of Callender; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Montgomery and Mrs. Allie Sievert of Sioux City; Wm. DeHart of Churdan; Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Day were Memorial day guests in the home of Mrs. Margaret Campbell. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mohr of Osage also guests, remained for the weekend.

The famous Lake City Co-op Stamp program which began in June, 1958, eleven years ago this month, is being dissolved as of September first, 1969, it is announced by the administrators of the program. The Co-operative trading stamp program was extremely popular during the late fifties and early sixties, but has since lost much of its popularity with the consuming public and participating Lake City merchants. A group of third graders recently toured the Graphic office accompanied by Mrs. Lubbert DeVries, substitute teacher. Mrs. Alyce Harper is the regular teacher. They were Kathy Bruggeman, Cindy Vroman, Daniel Gray, Mary Beth Petersen, Carrie Wiggins, Tony Davis, Lori Olson, Kirk Finley, Chris Smith, Ricky Hart, Rachel Blankenship, David Scanlan, Pat Fitzgerald, Leanne Stokes, Debbie Heuton, Paul Sievers, Judy Wiederin, Pat Gehling and June Jenkins. Gabble Tattle Prattle – Jim Korleski didn’t know just what to make of this note he received at one stop on his milk route here recently: “Please, no milk today. Of course that means tomorrow because I am writing this yesterday.” Two groups of boys from St. Mary’s parish enjoyed fishing trips to the County Park at Tuttle Lake near Dolliver, Iowa last week. One afternoon of each two-day holiday was spent at Arnolds Park. Accompanying the boys were Father James Fandel, Walt Ahrens, W. E. Lovett, Allan Lyons, Bill Williams and Dr. G. E. McIlrath. In the group Monday and Tuesday were Bill Barkmeier, Mike Iler, Dennis Miller, Mike Moulds, Dennis Schulte, Pat and Doug Sporleder, Bill Trotter and John Wirtz. The second group which went on Wednesday and Thursday included Mickey Ahrens, Randy Bellinghausen, Chris Ausborn, Dan and Jimmy Conrad, Don Gaffney, Mike Graves, Bob Gulbranson, Bill Higgins, Craig Iler, Dick and Don Korleski, Mark Lyons, Brad and Joe McIlrath, Mike Nutter, Terry Sharkey, Roger Stokes, Rickie Winker, Chas. Wirtz and Scott and Mike Williams. Bananas, Lb., 12c; Morrell’s Palace Bacon, 2-Lb. Pkg, $1.29; Chuck Pot Roast, Lb., 69c —Steig’s Market. Gabble Tattle Prattle – Boley Sowers says: “The reason they call television a medium must be that most of it is neither rare nor well done.” Four Lake City Community High School music students attended a summer music camp at the University of South Dakota at Vermillion last week. In the group

were Terri Daisy, Sara Williams, Debbie Hunziker and Beverly Byer. The program is sponsored by the Music Mothers in cooperation with the band department of the local school. Lake City is one of 93 Iowa towns which will lose its railroad depot according to an announcement Monday. Rail freight service will be continued in the towns and will be handled by agents working out of central agency stations in nearby towns. Gowrie will be the central agency station for Lake City, Lohrville, Auburn, Callender, Harcourt, Farnhamville, Stratford, Dayton and Stanhope. June, 1919 95 Years Ago Community Building – Lake City includes all territory within a radius of ten miles. The Community Building will be for the use of all. Will be adequate for all public gathering, stock, poultry and grain shows and exhibits, short course, etc. Eleven subscribers have quietly contributed $12,500 to start the Memorial Building fund. This amount has been raised without public demonstration. A large clock has been placed above the entrance to the Farmers State Bank. DES MOINES, June 10–That Iowa will ratify the woman suffrage amendment to the constitution at a special session of the legislature next winter seems assured. The old Park Hotel is rapidly being torn down to give place for the Community Memorial Building. On account of the heavy increase in expense it is necessary that we increase our prices on ice and we have decided to adopt the following schedule. 500-pound books - $3.25; 1000-pound books - 6.50; 2000-pound books - 13.00. All coupon books payable in cash in advance. These prices apply to residence deliveries to any part of the city. No deliveries will be made to parties not having coupon books. — Lake View Ice & Supply Co. Application has been made for a charter for organizing an American Legion Post at Lake City.

4-H members make a difference at Goins Park (Contributed by the ISU Extension Service) If you have not been by Goins Park in Lake City over the last few weeks, you really should swing by and take a look. County 4-H Council members teamed up with the Lake City Park Board with the goal of giving the park a face lift, while youth learned skills in grant writing and working with partners from other organizations. In January, a partnership between Tiffany Green from the Lake City Park Board and members of the County 4-H Council was developed. The youth and Green noted that the play equipment could use a paint job,

along with several other projects. Jill Mims, County Youth Coordinator, assisted five Council members in writing a Paint Iowa Beautiful grant, and funds were awarded for enough paint to paint the equipment as well as the gazebo. Youth involved with the grant included: Cory Beagle, Ally Blanchefield, Jacob Clark, Natasha Klocke, and Kelsey Strandberg. On June 1, Council members, Park Board members, and volunteers were in the park replacing boards on some of the equipment and in the gazebo and painting. A few touchups still need to be done, but the park is looking fresh and clean. County 4-H Council members

followed the 4-H pledge and gave their “hands to larger service” even though Lake City is not home for many of them. Council members who helped with painting included: Cory Beagle, Ally Blanchfield, and Jacob Clark from Lake City; Maria Dischler, and Jane Kipp from Rockwell City; Lucas Pontius from Gowrie; and Rachel Wedemeyer from Lohrville. Other volunteers that helped with painting included: Ashley and Robert Beagle, and Brad Richardson. Noel Blair painted the bouncy toys which included the

Yogi teeter-totter, bumble bee, and toucan. The County 4-H Council would like to thank all those who helped with the clean-up and the Park Board Association for allowing them to assist with this project. “I am proud when I look at the park and know that it is now bright and eye catching. I know my brothers will enjoy their time playing here” said Cory Beagle about the project. “I learned so much and even though I am still a kid, I know that I can make a big difference in my community.”

ADAZA Many relatives and friends were in Iowa recently to attend the graveside celebration of the life of Norman Tucker. He died May 16 in Jacksonville, FL at the age of 90 years. The service was Monday, June 16, at 11:00 a.m. in the Jefferson Cemetery. A luncheon followed in the History Boy Theater. Survivors are his wife Carol, one daughter, two sons, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren and other relatives. Wade and Ann Gemberling, Lohrville, hosted a dinner at their home Sunday June 15th for the Tucker family. They were from Oklahoma, Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina, California, Illinois, Missouri and China. John and Sara Rauleson and son, Tucker, were overnight guests of Liz Guess. Norman Tucker’s first wife was Mary Ellen Guess, the sister of Liz’es late husband, Martin Guess. Eugenia Hamilton took her dad, Vernon Hamilton, to Walnut on Saturday for their annual Fathers Day treat in the world of antiques.

Barbara Winkelman’s birthday was June 18th – our happy greetings to her! Father’s Day was celebrated in many ways, personal visits, a meal out, and phone calls to visit. All was appreciated. Kathy Schmitt of West Des Moines was a weekend visitor at Paul and Pat Schmitt’s. They were in Jefferson for the Bell Tower Festival parade and Paul was on the float with other Honor Flight veterans. Bill and Jan Schmitt, Alleman, brought Saturday supper to the Schmitt home and Chuck Schmitt of Lohrville joined the family group.

Gone to the Cats, Dogs, and Birds!! Our residents, and team members, love their animals and birds! Friday, June 13th, a lucky group of residents and team members toured the Almost Home Animal Shelter in Fort Dodge. Upon arrival we were able to see one cat leave with its “furrever” family and hear another little boy excitedly talking about the cat they were adopting for his grandmother. After receiving a brief history of the facility and the animals they currently have for adoption and placed in foster care. Following a tour to look at the animals currently on-site, we enjoyed the company of Pomeranians Lexi and Tut. Thanks to our tour guide, Levi (pictured with Lexi) and the rest of the Almost Home team and volunteers for an enjoyable and educational visit!!

At home, the Diamond Doves have been busy in our aviary. They are raising their second set of hatchlings. The parents are very protective of their nest and keep a watchful eye on their little ones. Mama Dove doesn’t leave them alone for long and soon returns to the nest. We found out the hard way that the Papa Dove does not like the first batch of hatchlings anywhere near the nest and does his best to drive them away. Due to the small size of the aviary, the adolecents did not have anywhere to go. The surviving adolecent was in a small cage of it’s own while waiting to go to a new home. Happily, the little bird left for his new home last Thursday! Residents and team members are also on watch in hopes that the finches will be raising little ones soon!

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

My Thought for the Day is: A penny saved is a government oversight. The Trivia for the week is: What was the only Fort ever built by the U.S. Government to protect one Indian Tribe from another? On Tuesday the VFW ladies Shirley Redaisel, Dorothy Siemann, and Gerry Hendricks accompanied by friends Rose Heath and Bette Knapp enjoyed a night out for dinner. On Wednesday Gerry Hendricks and her daughter Annette Sankot of Cedar Rapids accompanied by Dorothy Siemann and Bette Knapp enjoyed lunch at Larry’s Lake City Drive Inn and helped him celebrate 2 years of being in business. Larry served ice cream and cake to those attending. Thanks Larry Irwin On Friday The Blank Park Zoo presented a program at the J. J. Hands Library. Every one enjoyed themselves. On Saturday Bette attended a reunion of her Class at Iowa Methodist School of Nursing. Only two of her classmates were able to

attend, but we had a good time, good food and a slide show of our time at Iowa Methodist School of nursing (now Unity Point). A brick from the demolition of the School was available to any graduate. Recently Rose Heath and Cecil Cook attended the wedding of Rose’s grandson Tom Huster, Faye and Russ’s son and Jamie Caroll at the Christian Church in Sac City, with the reception at Wall Lake Community Center. Others were attending were Cecil Williams and wife Bev, Shirley and Les Fohnley, Ted and Sue Heath, Don and Kim Becher and Shelly. Birthday Congratulations go out to Gary Haberl the 25th, to Gloria Wattonville the 27th and to Annette Vogel and Phyllis Brend on the 29th. Have a Happy one. The answer to the Trivia Question is: Fort Atkinson. Until next week have a good one. Anyone having an item for Lohrville news may contact Bette Knapp at 712-465-3295.

We offer our sympathy to the family of Nicholas Hildreth, grandson of our Doris. He passed away Tuesday, June 17, from injuries suffered in an accident. We are shocked and saddened by the loss. Nicholas touched many lives, and his life was tragically cut short. Thank you to all of the area first responders, police departments, fire departments, and ambulance crews. We appreciate all of you – God bless you. As we recall, the forecast on Monday morning, June 16 mentioned that there was a good chance of damaging wind and hail, and chances for tornadoes and excessive rain. The storm that developed was noteworthy. Yes, we received rain and wind. There were tornadoes, too, like over around Clarksville in Butler County. That same day about three fourths of the town of Pilger, Nebraska was destroyed by a tornado, with loss of life. We never know. We heard from someone who traveled through the counties of Sioux, Cherokee, Buena Vista and Pocahontas soon after that storm. They said that the rivers and streams in that area were way out of their banks, and water was in the fields. There have been more storms and rain since then, too. (So, maybe we are through with the persistent drought from last summer?) Speaking of corn fields, do those rows look straight? We heard a few things from a friend about how it

was to plant corn years ago, before the use of GPS. At the end of the row the planter stake would be pulled up and set over the width of the row, and the tension of the wire had a great deal to do with having a good “check.” We heard that the usual number of kernels planted in a hill was four, but the old rhyme went like this, “One for the blackbird, one for the crow, two for the cutworm and one to grow.” The stores are stocked with Fourth of July supplies. There is everything you might need for picnics, swimming, boating and baseball. You may choose from red, white and blue coordinated paper plates, napkins, cups and T-shirts. You may fill your shopping cart with boxes of sparklers and small fireworks. Of course, right after July Fourth the stores will have back-to-school supplies and winter coats. Will we have enough “summer” before it’s all over? Right around the corner after the Fourth is the Calhoun County Expo starting Wednesday, July 9th. We are hoping for dry fairgrounds this year, with no extra “fishing holes.” We will have a chance to see 4-H exhibits in that nice community building. Then there are the animals, the entertainment, the midway, and countless other things. Thank you to all of the people who help to make the Expo possible. Remember, the Sunnyview website is and the coffee is always on.



Ok, it’s time for a note from the Mayor. We have had a busy spring, new water filters finished, a new well (now working), new United Bank features, new funds for the Library and Community Memorial Building, a commitment to build the pool and finally a new City administrator. We need someone to step up and name the pool after their family because we are $250,000.00 short of building a nice pool. Bill Bernau will still match $60,000.00 in donations. The pool committee is working but they need help. The community Memorial Building is looking great upstairs. Upstairs will be available for parties, in the near future. We are giving tours and raising funds at the Legion’s Saturday’s pancakes on Western Days. My clean-up program is still alive, just waiting for our administrator to get up to speed. So far we have

pushed three properties to demolish. City needs are a slow moving process. Too many bridges to cross and too many Ogres under the bridges. The Veterans rock dedicated to Roy Johnson is being painted now by Noel Blair. Thanks go to Roy’s estate, Ladonna Johnson Temple, Legion Post 31, VFW Post 1899. Wilber Wiederin’s family for donating the rock. Jared Mohr of Mohr gravel and cement for moving it and giving it a nest of white rock. Rollin of Sparky’s One Stop for a place to put it. Rick Strickland and John for leveling the white rock. I gave it a bath. Jim Omara for getting the whole process started. The Gentleman’s Coffee Club is alive and doing well. We have lost some members but Sweet Things keeps us going. Stop in and say hi. Keep the faith. “Get er done” Gary Fahan

Diane Vavak showing us how to decorate cupcakes It is hard to believe that another week has flown by. We had a busy week and that’s how we like it. Monday we had Diane Vavak join us and show us how to decorate cupcakes. Diane showed us some fancy ways of frosting. Then we all tried our hand at it. We used all different colors of frosting and sprinkles. The best part was eating the finished product and they were delicious! A huge thank you to Diane Vavak: for coming and spending her afternoon with us and showing off her talent. We are looking forward this next week on going to her ceramics shop and painting. Diane can be reached at 712-210-1107. Our hearts go out to the family of Eileen Bartels. She was a wonderful

woman who will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. Despite the stormy weather we have had this week we also made it out to the gazebo to plant flowers. I was lucky to have some expert flower planters that were willing to help me plant flowers. We talked about the different types of flowers we have all planted over the years and which flowers were our favorites. Neva told us how her mother would plant geraniums and then dig them up in the fall and bring them in the house for the winter. Neva said they had them all over the house and she grew quite tired of them. So if you get a chance, stop by and see the pretty pots of flowers by our gazebo. Jennifer Roberts-Activity Director

Totally Trees webinar series

The Iowa Master Gardener program and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach are once again offering a series of summer garden webinars for the general public. Trees are one of the most valuable components of home landscapes. Because weather patterns over the past couple of years have taken a toll on landscape trees, and because the Emerald Ash Borer is advancing across the state, the theme for the 2014 summer webinars is Totally Trees. Dates, presenters, and topics for the webinars are: Tuesday, July 15 – Mark Vitosh, Iowa DNR District Forester, will speak on “Iowa’s Unknown Treasure: The Forest Resource.” He will discuss trees in communities as well as the benefits and issues of growing trees in Iowa woodlands and urban areas. Thursday, Aug. 14 - Donald Lewis & Mark Shour, ISU Extension Entomologists, will speak on “Tree Pests: Emerald Ash Borer and Beyond”, with a focus on recent pests of trees such as the Emerald Ash Borer and the impact of these pests on the Iowa landscape. Thursday, Sept. 4 – Jeff Iles, Iowa State University Department of Horticulture, Chair and Extension Nursery and Landscape Specialist, will speak on “Replacing Ash Trees: Good Alternatives for Iowa”, providing ideas of other species of trees to consider planting in the home landscape. The series, in its fifth year, is offered by the Iowa Master Gardener program in response to requests for more Iowa gardening educational opportunities. The sessions are open to all interested gardeners; participants are not required to have completed Master Gardener training to attend. Sessions will be held from 6:30-8:30pm at Calhoun County Extension Office, 521 4th St., Rockwell City.

dedication and efforts.” ‘The Governor and I are strong believers that our community volunteers, charitable nonprofits, and faith-based institutions are often best equipped to provide long-term solutions to the challenges we face,” said Lt. Governor Reynolds. “Some of our most promising and costeffective solutions to literacy, disaster response, drop-out prevention, and community development are fueled by tapping into our best assets-our people and our volunteer spirit.” The Governor’s Volunteer Awards (GVA) program was created in 1982, with inaugural awards presented in 1983. What began as a small program for state government agencies, has expanded over the years and now provides all Iowa nonprofit, charitable and government organizations with an easy way to honor their volunteers with prestigious state-

level award. Hundreds of volunteers are recognized each year with awards in one of four categories: Individual, Group, Length of Service or Disaster Volunteer. Recipients of the Governor’s Volunteer Award do not necessarily need to live in Iowa, but their service must have benefited Iowans or an Iowa organization. Award criteria include an individual or group who has: -demonstrated exceptional commitment to volunteerism by helping with a special project or ongoing activities -demonstrated exemplary leadership, creativity, cooperation and hard work in their service to others -made an outstanding contribution to state or community volunteer service.
