Celebrate family, food and fun this weekend at Heritage Park in Forest City. The Winnebago Historical Society is hosting its first ever International Festival on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29, featuring entertainers at multiple venues in the park. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free, but organizers are asking for canned goods to give to local food banks and used eyeglasses for the Lions Club Recycle for Sight program. Heritage Park is located on the south edge of Forest City, and the main entrance is near the intersection of B14 and U.S. Highway 69. “We’re so excited that the festival is almost here!” said Audrey Olmstead, leader of the International Festival Steering Committee. “We have logged many, many hours raising money, getting the word out and getting things ready – and now we are ready!” Audrey and her husband, Steve, are curators of Heritage Park. They follow in the footsteps of Audrey’s parents, Ruth and Stanford Holtan, who took care of Heritage Park for 10 years until Stan’s death. Ruth now resides at Good Samaritan Home in Forest City. The International Festival will have four venues: the Pavilion, Storytelling in the Steel Wheel Cafe, the Village Green, and the World Kitchen/Beaver Creek Church. It will also have children’s activities near the Pavilion. Performers at the Pavilion include: Laura MacKenzie, Wayne Ripke Polka Band, Ross & MacKenzie, Soten Taiko and Eulenspiegal Puppet Theatre. Storytelling in the Steel Wheel Cafe is where the following will perform: Kris Meyer, Larry Yazzie, Pøtt Van Auken & Kris Meyer, and Ole & Sven. Lisa Ralls and Diana Novikova will give presentations in the Schoolhouse. Gov. Terry Branstad, who was invited but could not attend the festival, recorded a welcome video, which will be presented in the Schoolhouse. Performers at the Village Green in-

clude: Larry Yazzie, Nordic Dancers and Ross Sutter. Beaver Creek Church is where Heritage Park’s resident pastor, Doug Snyder, will lead an ecumenical service at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Ross Sutter and Kris Meyer will participate in the service. The World Kitchen will be in the Beaver Creek Church basement. “We will have a busy weekend in the church basement!” said Anne Bakke of Forest City. “We will eat our way around the world – starting in Norway and ending up in America.” Anne is a retired award-winning high-school food and family science teacher. She has lined up an array of cooks and dishes to demonstrate and offer samples to guests. She will also have several displays: 141 breads from around the world, Christmas around the World, apples, spices, and healthy foods. Entertainers Pastor Greg Anderson of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Forest City will be at the festival – with kilt and sword – to share stories and other life lessons from

his heritage in Scotland. Valorie Arrowsmith and Josie Arrowsmith Bagdons will provide international craft activities for the festival on Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. They work with many Nordic groups to help children and adults on their journeys to learn more about their culture and heritage.

Valorie is an artist whose paintings and hand-woven textiles are in private collections in England, Germany, Sweden, Japan and Minnesota, and she is a licensed Swedish teacher in Minnesota. Josie has been a Swedish teacher at Concordia Language Villages in Minnesota continued on page 4

Soten Taiko is the taiko drumming club of the Japan America Society of Iowa. The group of six drummers will hold two performances on Sunday during the International Festival.

Terry Ringham of the US Postal Service loads WCTA dividend checks for mailing on June 18.

WCTA mails just over $1 million in dividend payments Winnebago Cooperative Telecom Association (WCTA) mailed more than 8,000 dividend checks totaling just over $1,000,000 on June 18. The checks represent payment of 9.6% of deferred dividends for members who had service with WCTA for the years 1997-2000. “WCTA members can be proud of their Cooperative’s operations and fo-

cus on the future,” said General Manager Mark Thoma. “WCTA continues to provide low cost services to its members”. The WCTA Board of Directors voted earlier this year to approve the payment of deferred dividends for the years 1997-2000. Board members include Mark R. Johnson, Larry Foley, Stephen Thorland, Jerry Ouverson, Mike Stensrud, Curt Helland and Dale Meinders.

Music in the Park on the 4th

Reminiscent of the days when Buffalo Center had concerts in the park, the Buffalo Center Historical Society is again attempting to recreate a small piece of the past. The group is hosting a special event for the 4th of July in the Lions Club Park for the sixth year. “Music in the Park” will consist of live music and will run from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 4 near the shelter house. Performing this year will be Windy Creek, a blue grass band with Tom Willard and Judy Wiedemeier, which

will also feature other performers. Also lending their talents to the afternoon will be Teresa Buns, Natalie Dirksen, Chloe Enright, Jamie Goetz, Makeila Shortenhaus and Morgan Kahler. A free will offering will go to the many projects of the Buffalo Center Historical Society. The event is partially funded by a grant from Diamond Jo Casino. All are invited to bring lawn chairs and come to the Lions Club Park for an enjoyable afternoon with family and friends.

The City of Lakota will pay for kids in Lakota to go swimming twice a week this summer in Buffalo Center. The City will cover the cost of admission at the Buffalo Center Swimming Pool on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6-8 p.m. Parents will need to provide transportation for their children.

In previous years, Lakota has had an activity bus, which took kids from Lakota to the Buffalo Center Swimming Pool two nights per week. The parents were responsible for the entry fee. The changes are being made this year because the City did not receive any response to its ad for a bus driver.

Volunteers needed to advocate for residents in local long-term care facilities The Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman is seeking volunteers for its new Volunteer Ombudsman Program (VOP). The VOP wishes to place 1-2 volunteers in every nursing facility, residential care facility, and elder group home in Iowa. Volunteer Ombudsmen are trained, certified volunteers that visit one local long-term care facility to advocate for residents’ rights. This includes visiting with residents about their quality of care and quality of life in the facility and seeking to resolve their concerns. This unique and rewarding opportunity requires a minimum commitment of three hours per month for one year. Skills necessary include a friendly disposition, active listening, collaborative problem solving, and a strong appreciation for older Iowans and Iowans with disabilities. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Previous experience in health care is not required. Certain conflicts of interest may prevent some people from serving, including current employees of long-term care

facilities and their family members. The benefits of becoming a Volunteer Ombudsman include: • Training, resources, and continuing support from the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman’s Office; • Rewarding relationships with longterm care residents; • A flexible schedule – volunteers are able to conduct their service as it suits their lifestyle; and, • The opportunity to learn more about navigating the system of long-term care. New volunteer trainings are scheduled around the state this summer. Interested persons must submit a volunteer application prior to attending training. To learn more about the Volunteer Ombudsman Program, and to request an application, contact Sarah Hinzman, Volunteer Ombudsman Program Coordinator at 866-236-1430, or visit the VOP website at vop

Farmers still have a fighting chance to stop Palmer Amaranth, a tough yieldrobbing weed, from spreading in Iowa. The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach are working together to provide information to keep the weed at bay. Native to the southwestern United States, Palmer was first officially identified in Iowa last September. There are now documented cases in Harrison, Page, Muscatine, Fremont and Davis counties. Herbicide resistance, primarily to glyphosate, is an issue. “We’re at a point that we can really restrict how quickly it spreads,” said Mike Owen, ISU weed specialist. “If we ignore it, in the next 10 years it could be infesting half the (row crop) acres in Iowa.” That will decimate yields and the bot-

tom line. Experts say Palmer outbreaks in the South have caused complete crop failures. A mild to moderate infestation can result in soybean yield losses of up to 30 percent, with a potential revenue hit of more than $200 per acre. Early identification and action is paramount to mitigate the spread of Palmer, which resembles waterhemp, in the state. “There’s increasing importance to know what weed species you have in order to figure out better prescriptive control methods,” said Dr. Ed Anderson, ISA senior director of Supply and Production Systems. ISU weed specialists are available to help identify Palmer Amaranth, which is vital for appropriate planning. Late May is the time to start scouting for Palmer, but it will germinate throughout the growing season. Recommended control strategies for Palmer include soil-applied, residual herbicides and multiple effective modes of action. Group 3, 15 and some group 14 products work well. Post-emergent products are limited due to herbicide resistance, and should be used sparingly. Cover crops and spot cultivation are also effective measures. Waterhemp is a “relatively wimpy weed” and can be controlled with weaker herbicide doses unlike Palmer, which makes identification so important. For management help, contact Owen at 515-294-5936 or mdowen@iastate. edu.

North Iowa High School Commencement


Buffalo Center (Iowa) Tribune – Wednesday, June 25, 2014 – PAGE 7

By Derek Yegge

Editor’s note: The following speech was delivered by Derek Yegge during Commencement Exercises at North Iowa High School on May 18, 2014. When I first got here, I had realized that my diploma should already be signed, so I figure why not go out hard and with a bang? The first thing I’d like to say is congratulations to you graduates. It’s crazy how we actually made it through it and got our diplomas. I didn’t think they gave diplomas out to people with a 1.7 GPA like Jenna over there, but you proved me wrong school. I learned a few things while I was in school, and I figured that these could be useful to everyone in here in the room. 1) You’re never done learning. Whether you’re on the job or in the classroom, you never actually will quit learning. There are a trillion things to learn. It may be as simple as baking a cake to as complicated as making a bomb out of your mom’s kitchen supplies. The point is you’re never done learning in life, and millions of new things will be thrown at you. 2) Work hard- The harder that you work, the better off of a person you will become. The harder you work depends on how your life turns out. That’s just reality, and you will make it what you want it to be. Work hard and take pride in what you do because life will be more enjoyable. 3) Have fun- Life is too short to not have a little fun in life. You may live to be 100 years old or you may die in a few weeks. You never know what fate is going to offer you, so make sure you enjoy life. Have fun with stuff you do. I know that I have plenty of fun, and I’m glad that I make that choice. 4) Don’t be afraid to try something new- By that I don’t mean drugs. Try new things that life offers you, meet new friends and try new foods. Do something a little out of your comfort zone, because you never will know what life is truly like until you try all of the new things that life may offer you, so I encourage all of you to try something new. I think that over the years of help that we’ve received, I think that certain people need to be thanked. I’d like to start out with our class. Class- I’d like to thank you for all the great years that I’ve had with you guys, and you should thank yourselves as well as the audience, because someday

Derek Yegge you’ll be paying for their social security. Teachers- Potter- Thank you for being such a respectful person and pushing others to move on forward and challenge themselves. I had a great four years with you as a coach and teacher. The level of care you offer to your students is over the chart, and I’m glad that I had several years with you as a teacher. I also appreciate that you showed me the difference between the Democratic Party and my kind of party. Mr. Deboer- Thank you for helping me work with my strengths, because I’ve always been strong in math. Thanks for pushing me and making me a smarter person throughout your class, because I enjoyed it, and I know it will help me in the future. That Blackjack that you taught me will help me in the future, and can hopefully make me some money. Mr. R- Thanks for being an awesome teacher. I had the most fun in your class, and we all just enjoyed having you as our teacher. I’m very grateful for all of the priceless knowledge that you have taught me over the past year. I know it will help me in the near future, and it’s something that I can take away from school. Thanks for everything, and I’m going to miss you next year. Coaches- Thanks for pushing us to our limits and giving us the chance to play in sports. I had a great time participating in sports and working to strive for our goals. State basketball as well as track had been a blast, and my favorite times were Friday night football games, so that thank you for everything. And thank you Coach Ullmann for telling us that bankruptcy was a fresh start. I’ll remember that in the future. Quote: “Remember who you are and where you came from, because if you think you’re at the top, that might just be the same place you hang from.”

Paige Hassebroek, left, receives a $1,000 scholarship presented by Iowa Motor Truck Association Board Member, KJ Hueneman of Hueneman Farms LC.

Hassebroek receives Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation scholarship Paige Hassebroek of Buffalo Center has been selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation. The Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation is a division of the Iowa Motor Truck Association and has been rewarding scholarships since 1986 to Iowans pursuing an advanced degree at an Iowa college or university. This year, the Foundation is awarding 10 - $1000 scholarships, and all of these recipients possessed the work ethic, grades and commitment to excellence that are the main focus of the selection process. Paige is the recipient of the Darryl Mason Memorial. This scholarship was established in memory of the late Darryl Mason and was set up by Dar-

ryl’s family and friends. Darryl was a supporter of the IMTA and a volunteer, participant, and champion of the Truck Driving Championships. Darryl was a long time employee of Green Products Company. Scholarships through the Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation are available to anyone that is pursuing advanced education in the State of Iowa. The Foundation was created in an effort for the trucking industry to give back to the state of Iowa and to invest in the most important asset that Iowa has – the next generation. Paige is the daughter of Travis and Patty Hassebroek.

Bison suffer losses in weeks three and four The Bison baseball season continues to be a rough one, as North Iowa came up just short of their first victory during the past two winless weeks. The Bison hosted conference leaders Newman Catholic on Monday, June 9, as they fell 15-0 in five innings. Spencer Armstrong recorded the only hit on the night for the Bison, while the Knights totaled 15 hits against pitcher Drew Jensen. Jensen struck out three batters while giving up five walks and 10 earned runs. “[Newman is] one of the best teams we are going to play all year, and we are just not at a place yet were we can compete with a team like that,” said Bison Head Coach Graig Eichenberger. “Newman hit everything, and they hit everything hard. I thought Drew Jensen pitched well. He tried changing his speeds to throw the new hitters off, but it just didn’t work.” Newman 4 1 4 0 6 15 North Iowa 0 0 0 0 0 0

The Bison traveled to Northwood on Tuesday, where they scored more runs in one game than they had in their entire season to date. The boys came within striking distance of their first win of the season, but the Vikings pulled ahead in the final inning to take the game, 15-14. Leading the offense for North Iowa were Austin Haisman, Armstrong and Hunter Gelhaus with three hits each, followed by Steven Milbrandt and Gar-

rett Walsh with two hits apiece. Alex Paulson and Taylor Ostermann each had one hit. Armstrong and Gelhaus recorded triples, while Walsh hit a double. Gelhaus had five RBIs, followed by Armstrong with three. Pitching for the Bison were Noah Paulson, who allowed 10 hits and seven earned runs with one strike out in three innings, and Walsh, who gave up two hits, one earned run and two walks with one strike out. “A very explosive game on offense for both teams,” said Coach Eichenberger. “They hit our first pitcher really hard and not as well on our second. We had a chance to win, but a couple of errors in the last inning really did us in. The bats really came alive; now we just need the gloves to follow suit.” Northwood 0 6 3 2 0 0 4 15 North Iowa 3 1 0 4 0 6 0 14 The Bison gave a good effort the next night at Britt, where they lost 6-4 to the West Hancock Eagles. Austin Paden led North Iowa at the plate with three hits, followed by Walsh with two. Haisman, Armstrong, Alex Paulson, Gelhaus and Jensen each had one hit, including doubles by Haisman and Paulson. Ostermann pitched the full game, striking out six batters while giving up seven hits, two earned runs and two walks. Coach Eichenberger says it was a pretty good game for his team. “Again,

we just needed to make one or two more plays on defense to get ourselves a win. Taylor Ostermann pitched really well like he has a done a couple of times this year; we just need to score a few more runs and make a few more plays.” West Hancock 2 0 0 0 2 2 0 6 North Iowa 0 0 2 0 0 1 1 4

The Bison closed out their week with a trip to Belmond on Friday, June 13, where they fell to the Broncos, 8-5. Armstrong and Noah Paulson each hit a double for North Iowa, while Haisman and Gelhaus had singles. The Bison advanced eight runners to first base on walks. Walsh pitched for more than five innings for the Bison, striking out seven batters while allowing two hits, one earned run and five walks. Ostermann pitched four two outs, giving up one hit. “Garrett Walsh pitched a pretty good game, and we scored some early runs, but in the long run, errors killed us. We had way too many errors,” said Eichenberger. “With a young team, you are going to have that, but if we get a lead, we can’t tense up. We have to learn to play with a lead and to protect it; especially if the pitcher is doing his job.” Belmond 1 1 0 1 1 4 0 8 North Iowa 0 3 1 0 0 1 0 5 Last Monday’s game with Forest City

was rained out, so the Bison’s first game of the week came on Wednesday, June 18, when they hosted Garner-Hayfield/ Ventura. The Cardinals strung together five runs in the third inning to build a strong lead, as they won the contest, 8-2. The Bison totaled just three hits for the nights, which came in the form of singles from Milbrandt, Walsh and Jensen. Ostermann was the only other batter to reach a base on a walk. Ostermann pitched for six innings, striking out two batters while giving up 12 hits, six earned runs and three walks. Haisman pitched for one inning, giving up one hit, one earned run and one walk, while striking out one batter. “You got to give it the Theobold kid – he pitched exceptionally well,” said Coach Eichenberger. “Our young kids have got to be more aggressive. We are watching too many fastball strikes and then trying to hit the pitcher’s offspeed stuff, which we are just not good enough at doing at this point in our careers. I thought defensively we did a better job, except for in the third when we gave up five runs, which could have easily only been one. We’ve got to learn to eliminate that one really bad inning we seem to have each game. Again, I thought Taylor pitched a pretty good game; he just needs a few more plays made behind him.” Garner 0 0 5 0 0 3 0 8 North Iowa 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 2

The North Iowa Lady Bison put away two opponents early during the last week of conference and tournament action. The ladies headed to Riceville for a tournament on Saturday, June 14, where they exploded out of the dugout with 11 runs in the first winning against the home team. North Iowa went on to win 14-2 over Riceville in three innings. Rebecca Murray went three for three at the plate, including a double. Krista Schutter also hit a double, while Paige Hassebroek and Jenna Koppen each hit singles. The Lady Bison also got eight runners on base with walks. Hassebroek pitched for North Iowa, striking out five batters while giving up one hit, two earned runs and four walks. North Iowa 11 3 0 14 Riceville 1 0 1 2 North Iowa faced St. Ansgar in the second round of the tournament, as the Saints held the Lady Bison to four hits to put them away, 7-3. Murray hit two singles in two at bats, while Rachel Boekelman and Rachel Hassebroek each hit a double. Kayla Stelter pitched through the first out of the fourth inning, striking out two batters while giving up two hits, six earned runs and nine walks. Kendall Melz came in to relieve Stelter, giving up six hits, one earned run and three walks. “We gave up too many free bases, and they took advantage of it,” said

Lady Bison Head Coach Chad Hinders. “Kendall Melz came in in the middle innings for her first varsity pitching experience and did a nice job. Our win/ loss record may not show it, but I feel we are improving every chance we get to take the field.” St. Ansgar 3 0 0 3 0 1 0 7 North Iowa 0 1 0 0 2 0 0 3

The Lady Bison were scheduled to play Forest City last Monday, but that game has been rescheduled as a double header at Forest City on July 2. On Wednesday, North Iowa hosted Garner-Hayfield/Ventura, as the Lady Bison put the Cardinals away in just three innings by a score of 13-1. Boekelman, Paige Hassebroek, Murray, Ashley Huntington and Koppen each had two hits for North Iowa, and Rachel Schutter, Krista Schutter and Taylen Hinders had one hit each. Koppen had three RBIs, while Huntington and Krista Schutter had two each. Paige Hassebroek gave up just one hit as pitcher, while striking out two batters and allowing two walks. “This was a huge confidence boost for us,” said Coach Hinders. “GHV has been playing well and knocked off Lake Mills, so this is affirmation that we can play with anyone in the conference.” North Iowa 4 1 8 13 Garner 1 0 0 1

The Lady Bison got out to another early lead on Friday, June 20, as they hosted Osage. The Green Devils came back late in the game to take the lead, but North Iowa tied it up in the seventh. Osage went on to win with a home run in the eighth, 8-5. Paige Hassebroek counted a home run and a double among her three hits for the night. She also had three RBIs. Murray and Huntington had two hits each, while Boekelman had one. Paige pitched for the Lady Bison, striking out six batters while giving up 17 hits, seven earned runs and three walks. “Friday was a bit of the same, as we came out and plated three runs in the first; two off of the home run blast by Paige Hassebroek,” explained Hinders. “We had chances in the fifth and sixth but stranded runners on second and third both innings. “Osage came to life off of a home run of their own – a two run shot by Cassidy Mohl – to tie the score at three in the fifth. Here is where the excitement picked up. Osage plated single runs in the sixth and seventh to take a 5-3 lead into the bottom of the seventh. We were

able to get a rally going and scored two runs and had the winning run on third. Jenna Koppen lifted a ball to right center that seemed to have a chance to drop in to drive in the winning run, but a nice play by the center fielder ended our rally. Osage then was able to add three runs in the eighth off of a threerun home run by Destiny Thompson. We went down in order in our half of the eighth, and Osage pulled out an 8-5 win. “This was a fun game to be a part of,” added Hinders. “I know in the end this was not the outcome we wanted, but we played well in all three phases of the game. I really thought that Koppen’s liner would find its way to the grass, but hats off to Osage; they made the plays when they needed to tonight. I am very proud of what our team has been doing lately. We have made great strides throughout the season; hopefully this will not be a discouragement, and we will continue to work hard and compete the rest of the way.” Osage 0 0 0 0 3 1 1 3 8 North Iowa 3 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 5

ings are celebrating summer on Sunday, June 29, when the group gathers at the Ramsey Reformed Church of rural Titonka at 7:00 p.m. The hymnsings are a north Iowa tradition and gather men and women, boys and girls from several area churches. The congregations who sponsor the hymnsings are an ecumenical mix of First Baptist, First Congregational and First Reformed Churches of Buffalo Center, in addition to Ramsey Reformed of rural Titonka and First Presbyterian of Lakota and Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Buffalo Center. Pastor Brad DeVries of First Congregational Church is the song leader. The hymnsings now meet three times per year following a rotation. Favorite hymns will be highlighted. The congregations’ hope and dream is a time of worship and fellowship and, most importantly, the hymns people love. Good fellowship will continue following the hymnsing, with a lunch coordinated by each host church. The community hymnsings continue a rotation through the participating churches. Each church contributes to the mix with someone from their congregations to sing or play. One of the beloved parts of every hymnsing has been a unifying closing hymn, and all are invited to help decide what hymn that should be. The community at large is cordially invited to share this hour with the sponsoring churches. The next hymnsing is scheduled for October 26 at First Reformed Church.

To prevent death and injury, Iowa law enforcement is again asking the motoring public to buckle up, slow down and drive sober. According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, there were six traffic fatalities during the four-day 4th of July weekend last year; three of which were alcohol related. This year, July 1-7, more than 250 city, county and state law enforcement agencies across Iowa will participate in a special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP) in an effort to keep everyone safe as they travel. The sTEP projects are funded by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau through a program with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This funding enables more officers to work more hours on roadways all across the state during times of the year when travel increases and traffic crashes, injury and death are most probable. “Too many people still take the attitude that it will never happen to me,” said sTEP Coordinator Randy Hunefeld. “But fatal crashes can and do happen every day. We’ve made a lot of progress, but there are still too many people in Iowa dying because they are unbuckled, speeding, and driving intoxicated or impaired.”

Iowa law enforcement officers need your help and are asking every motorist that gets behind the wheel to buckle up and drive responsibly For more information, visit, www.stopimpaireddriving. org or contact Randy Hunefeld at 515725-6124 or
