New initiative hopes to make trick-or-treating safer for kids with food allergies By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER – Many children look forward to Halloween and Trick-or-Treating all year long; but those with food allergies are often left out of the fun, as most candy is off limits. One initiative, The Teal Pumpkin Project, is aiming to change this by encouraging people to offer trick-ortreaters an alternative to candy. Local mom Katie Schmitz has become an advocate for the project here in Grundy Center. “My son Jacob is severely allergic to peanuts, so every year we go trick or treating he has a great time, but every year probably 80 percent of what we bring home has to leave again because it’s not safe for him,” Schmitz said. And Jacob is not alone. According to FARE (the Food Allergy Research and Education association) roughly 1 in 13 children in the U.S. have a food allergy. In an effort to be inclusive to all kids, the Teal Pumpkin Project encourages people to offer non-food items to trick-or-treaters in addition to the regular offering of candy. These items could be anything

from glow sticks to stickers to spider rings and more. Houses participating in this initiative will usually mark their doorstep with a teal pumpkin, so parents can easily identify houses providing alternatives to candy. “The idea of the Teal Pumpkin Project isn’t to stop candy, but to provide other options for those with special dietary needs,” Schmitz said. “And the neat thing is that it’s not just for kids with food allergies, but also for those with diabetes, celiac disease, or just moms who would prefer their kids just didn’t have a ton of sugar.” Schmitz said that she always provides alternatives at home, and she has recruited several friends on board, but she thinks it would be neat to see the community involved in the initiative. She added that next year, she hopes to get even more people educated about the project and involved through some fun events. Anyone who’s interested can visit for more information about the initiative, including ideas for candy alternatives, print-out posters and other resources.

Visitors give first impressions of Grundy Center’s Main Street

In late August, a number of visitors came to Grundy Center’s Main Street, and reported on what their first impressions were, what they liked, and what they disliked. Last Wednesday, the results were reported on during a meeting with Main Street Iowa and Main Street Grundy Center.

By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER – Have you ever wondered what visitors think when they come to Grundy Center? Well, now you have the chance to find out. In late August, Main Street Grundy Center participated in a ‘First Impressions Exchange’ with a fellow Main Street community, Centerville. Each town sent a number of volunteers to visit the other town, and rate everything from the appearance of the downtown area, to the friendliness and customer service of local businesses, to the walkability and more. Last Wednesday, the long-awaited results came in, and the overall consensus was that Grundy Center is a pretty great place to be. Some of the highlights from

the visitor surveys noted positives such as: beautiful, historic facades on Main Street businesses, a clean and inviting downtown area, wellkept and tidy houses and lawns, and friendly, helpful business owners and employees. The visitors were particularly impressed with the pride shown in the community, through keeping the downtown area and surrounding residential areas neat and tidy, as well as the cohesiveness of the aesthetic of downtown, from the planters and benches to the flags and trees. Main Street Iowa business specialist Robin Bostrom, who was at the meeting on Wednesday, agreed with the visitors’ comments, adding: “When I come to Grundy Center and try to find the bad part of town, it doesn’t exist as an outsider. It appears people take care of their prop-

erty and they’re very proud of where they live. You don’t see that in a lot of communities, and that’s something you should be very proud of and shout from the rooftops.” After listing their first impressions and perceived strengths of Grundy Center, visitors were also asked to list any weaknesses that they felt the community may have. To this, they noted a number of vacant storefronts on Main Street, businesses with limited hours, and lack of visual appeal in storefront displays. In the survey, visitors mentioned more than once that they counted about seven vacant buildings on Grundy Center’s Main Street. Main Street Iowa business specialist Jim Thompson said that visitors may have mistaken occupied See Main Street page 3

Rickelman finds a career in agriculture

BY ROB MAHARRY The Grundy Register (Editor’s note: This story is being published in conjunction with National Pork Month. Thanks to Laura Hommel for providing us with the information that led to this interview.) GRUNDY COUNTY- Although she grew up on an acreage in rural Grundy County, Sarah Rickelman didn’t take the most traditional path to a career in agriculture: her family didn’t farm or raise livestock. An opportunity arose after her freshman year of college, however, and now she’s not just working in pork production—she’s attending national conferences and sharing her story with others. In conjunction with National Pork Month, The Grundy Register caught up with Rickelman, a sow farm manager and gestation specialist at Degener-Juhl Farms near Hudson, to discuss what drew her into the fold and how her experience is resonating with other

women in the agricultural field. Rickelman was home educated and attended Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo. After her first year of college, she found herself at a job she wasn’t satisfied with emotionally or financially and heard of an opportunity to work at Degener-Juhl, which finishes 40,000 hogs a year and houses about 1,700 at a time. She came into her job interview without any experience but touted her work ethic and ability to learn on the go as reasons why she deserved a chance. She was hired on the spot in May 2008. She later finished her studies at Iowa State University, earning a degree in Ag Studies with an emphasis in Swine Production in 2011 while continuing to work on the farm back in Grundy County. “It helped that my studies at college were related to hogs, and I could take what I was learning in school, get out of school at three, come to the farm and apply what

I’ve learned,” she said. In 2010, Rickelman was named an Iowa Pork Youth Ambassador, travelling to county fairs, the state fair, Washington, D.C., the FloridaGeorgia football game (aka “the world’s largest outdoor tailgate”) and the World Pork Expo, among other events, to promote and inform the public about pork production. “I learned that not everyone knows where Iowa is. They don’t know how pigs are raised. They love bacon, but the connection between pigs and bacon—there’s a disconnect there,” Rickelman said. “So that’s when I starting getting into really advocating for ag.” Last year, she was chosen to attend the Iowa Farm Bureau Ag Leader’s Institute, and she became even more interested with sharing her personal story. She now blogs on and Facebook. Rickelman is well aware of some of the misconceptions and negative See agriculture page 5

A group of Grundy Center middle school students are shown enjoying the new outdoor classroom on a sunny day.

School utilizes new outdoor classrooms

By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER – This summer, instructors at the Grundy Center Middle School took on a project to create outdoor classrooms as an alternative space for students to learn. So far, the new classrooms have been a hit at the middle school, with even more benefits than initially expected. “The [outdoor classrooms] are really great for group work, because instead of having them in the regular classroom trying to discuss their work while everyone else is quiet and trying to study, they can just sit at one of the tables outside and not worry about disrupting anyone,” said social studies teacher Todd Zinkula, who has been heavily involved in the outdoor classroom project. He said that students are easily monitored through the windows next to the outdoor classroom area, and so far, none of the teachers have had any issues with students abusing their privileges to the outdoor classroom.

“One sort of unforeseen benefit we’ve noticed is that students tend to congregate there before school and socialize. Because our doors are locked and students cant get into the school until 7:30 in the morning, they now have somewhere to sit and wait,” he said, adding that there’s usually a crowd of 15 to 20 students at the tables each morning. Shortly after the middle school began construction for their outdoor classroom early in the summer, a group of high school instructors decided that their students needed an outdoor area as well. While the money for the middle school outdoor classroom came from various donations and middle school fundraiser money, the high school’s classroom was made possible by a donation from the Grundy Center Class of 2016. Vicki Murphy, a high school instructor and driving force for the high school’s outdoor classroom project, said that she thinks the outdoor patio area will be a nice addition once it’s done.

Brayden Buhrow, a senior at GCHS, has been working on the finishing touches for the area, including tilling, mulching and laying brickwork around the concrete patio. Buhrow is currently a school-towork student who’s interested in a future career in landscaping. Working on the outdoor patio area has given him real life experience in an area he hopes to pursue. Buhrow and Murphy said that the plan is to have the patio area finished up in time for conferences this Thursday. In the spring, Murphy said that students will plant flowers and finish up with beautification of the outdoor area, which seats 12 students. “This project is great because it’s for the kids, and it’s coming from the kids,” Murphy said. “The kids paid for it (with the Class of 2016 donation), the kids are creating it, and the kids are the ones who’re going to do the upkeep; it’s really something for them to be proud of.”

From page 1 buildings for vacant buildings if there wasn’t a window display, or any lights on in the store. He suggested that businesses revamp their window displays, and keep them current and exciting to draw customers in. “Your window displays really are your business’s billboard, and having lights in your window to highlight your goods is really a silent seller as people walk by and their attention is drawn in,” he said. He added that when a building looks vacant, it could even hinder the businesses next to it. “Vacancies and vacant storefronts are pedestrian barriers. People tend to not want to walk by them, so having them consistently filled and determining where their next destination is, it’s critical,” Thompson said. “Why do you think malls are so successful? Because when you leave a store, you’re attracted to one down the aisle. Main Streets tend to do the same thing.” Thompson advised that when there is a vacant building, someone should be working with the building owner to either try to get the spot filled, or to put some sort of a seasonal, themed display in the window to make it look less empty. Thompson and Bostrom also addressed the issue of businesses having limited hours, which was noted several times in the survey. “This might be a good opportunity to visit with store owners about their hours, and just let them know, ‘Hey, we have a lot of people coming and they really want to come into your store, so you might want to consider additional days.’ It can’t hurt. All they can say is no. But I think it just takes some encouragement and maybe the more they hear it from people, the more it will help,” Bostrom said. Thompson added that when businesses have similar hours, it helps out the downtown district as a whole, by offering shoppers more to see, and ultimately buy, while they are visiting. Overall, the Main Street Iowa business specialists agreed that Grundy Center performed extremely well on the ‘First Impressions Exchange,’ and that the town should pride themselves in their accomplishments, while working to improve on areas such as vacant storefronts, limited hours and window displays. Thompson and Bostrom said that it would be beneficial for Grundy Center to participate in the same exchange program in another year or two, in order to measure what progress has been made.

GCHS students create installation art around high school

By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER – Any artist can tell you that you don’t need much to create a masterpiece. Sometimes all you need is paper, scissors, a little bit of string and a lot of imagination. At least that’s the case for the students in Ronda Sternhagen’s Fundamentals of Art class, who ditched the sketchbooks and pencils, and took their art to a grander scale by creating 3-D art installations throughout the high school. Under the guidance of student teacher Katie Mathis, students were tasked with creating a 3-D work of art out of paper, using geometrical shapes, then installing it somewhere around the school. It took several weeks, and a lot of trial and error, but as of last week, all six groups of artists had their work up for the world to see. “Initially they were skeptical about the project, but in the end I think they really enjoyed it,” said Mathis. “In their artist statements, they wrote about really liking the fact that people can see their artwork, and they’re really proud of it.” The idea for the project came from Mathis, who has a background in 3-D art, ceramics and installation art. According to Mathis, she and Sternhagen thought that it would be beneficial to expose students to a different type of art that they haven’t experimented with yet. The project also gave the students an opportunity to flex their math and engineering skills, too. “It was very cross-curricular because they had to put their engineering hat on to be able to construct the different geometical shapes,” Sternhagen said. “Initially we started out doing it the old school, hard way with math and protractors and compasses. But I think that was good for them to have that experience of integration.” Sternhagen said that the finished product has been very gratifying for the students. “I think the artists have felt a bit of

This work, titled 'Rainbow Reign’ was created by Anessa Smith, Marissa Kanagy, Ana Kuznia, Mason Gronen and Calvin Lufkin, who are pictured above from left to right. Katie Mathis, shown inset, has been a student teacher in the art department at GCHS since the beginning of the school year. One of her biggest projects was bringing 3-D installation art to the halls of the high school. fame with having their work up and being recognized. Not only are the students who made [the art installations] enjoying them, but so is every student and teacher in the high school who passes by them each day,” she said. “It’s neat because we’re seeing people reading the artist statements, interacting with the art, and doing what we’ve intended it to do.” “We have a lot of nice artwork around the building, but this project really took it to a new level,” she added. “Now I’m kind of wishing we could turn these pieces into permanent pieces. I know the kids really want to keep them up, and not just the kids involved in it, but other kids and staff, too.” Mathis, who finished up with her

student teaching in Grundy Center last Thursday, said that this project has not only been a great learning experience for the students, but for her as well, as she hopes to pursue a career in art education after she is finished with school. Mathis has one more stint of student teaching left, this time in Marshalltown, but she says that her first teaching experience in Grundy Center will always stick with her. “I’ll definitely miss the kids here,” she said. “I feel like if I try this project again at a different school, I’ll just keep remembering when I did it here, and how great the kids were and how successful the project was. I’ve really enjoyed it.”

Girls Night Out in Grundy Center

Last Thursday marked the 9th annual ‘Girls Night Out in Grundy Center’ event, which is held each year to raise money for local organizations engaged in the battle against cancer. This year, fundraising is still going on until the end of October, and insulated coffee mugs and hot chocolate donated by Grundy County Memorial Hospital and Nelson Law Firm will be sold at Stylish Living to raise donations. All money raised will be split between two local organizations, half to the Grundy County Memorial Hospital, which will be purchasing a new 3D mammography machine to bring state of the art cancer detection to area women, and the other half to the oncology department of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. The final numbers on fundraising will be announced the first week of November. (Michaela Kendall/The Grundy Register photo)


From page 1 perceptions associated with livestock production, and she hopes that her story can help to change them by showing the work that she does in a more positive light. Although agriculture is a maledominated industry, Rickelman also believes that women sharing their experience is important because

it is more often than not women who make buying decisions when it comes to food and groceries. “I definitely would encourage young women to get into ag. It’s a wonderful occupation and career,” she said. So far in her career, Rickelman hasn’t planned much, but she admitted that someday she would

like to be the first female president of the Iowa Farm Bureau. In the meantime, she’ll continue to advocate for agriculture and explain why it means so much to her. As she and a group of other young employees prepare to wrap up a day of work at Degener-Juhl, it appears that the future of agriculture in Grundy County is in solid hands.

A look back through The Grundy Register Compiled by Michaela Kendall 10 Years Ago This Week - 2006 The Grundy Center swimming pool is officially closed, not just for the season, but for good. That’s the result of a unanimous vote by the Grundy Center City Council during a meeting Monday night Furthermore, Mayor Jack Stumberg said “ I will not, as Mayor, let the pool open next year without repairs.” Monday night’s vote is the latest development in the ongoing city dilemma on the future of the 37-year old municipal swimming pool. The facility was closed before the scheduled end of the season last summer when water clarity due to filter problems made it impossible for lifeguards to monitor the safety of swimmers in the deepest part of the pool A citizens’ committee working toward a bond referendum to finance construction of a new pool facility has seen their efforts turned down twice by voters in the community. There’s talk that the committee may petition the city to take a new pool proposal to the voters again, however that group has not made public any such plans. An estimate prepared at the request of Councilman John Kramer indicates cost to repair the mechanical system to get the pool operational would be about $135,700. The repairs would include a new filter, pump. jets, piping inside the pump house, new neater, painting the existing pool, removal and replacement of the roof over a building, new electrical service, labor, and a 15 percent miscellaneous expense for contingencies. That $135,700 fix should be enough to keep the pool water clean and clean so that cloudy conditions in the pass could be corrected. The plan has some limitations, however, city officials indicate Sarah Nilles, a senior at Grundy Center High School, has won a Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award, a $5,000 college scholarship given by the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association. Sarah is the daughter of Rick and Elisabeth Nilles of Holland. Sarah was one of 15 Iowa teens making presentations on Saturday, Oct 14, at the Hoover Presidential Library Museum in West Branch, birthplace and burial site of the nation’s 31st president The selection committee, chaired by former Governor Robert Ray, recognized and honored Sarah’s uncommon creativity and commitment in completing a project entitled “Educating Africa. One Bus at a Time.” She collected used school supplies from schools around Northeast Iowa All the supplies were sorted, boxed and shipped to schools in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Her goal was to help enrich the education of African students, promote a global view for Iowa students, and improve the environment through recycling. Sarah is the second Grundy Center High School student in two years to win a $5,000 scholarship. Anne Eberline, a 2006 GCHS graduate, received the scholarship last year for her work on the landscaping near the long-term care unit of Grundy County Memorial Hospital. She returned on Saturday to West Branch from Northwestern College in Orange City to listen to Sarah’s presentation. At the Center Theatre … “The Guardian” and “Open Season.” Spaghetti … 51 cents per box. Extra large eggs … 59 cents per dozen. 25 Years Ago This Week - 1991 The action taken by Grundy CenterNeighbors helping neighbors, that’s what it’s all about. The concept’s nothing new in Grundy County, but Don Dittrner of rural Grundy Center was taken by surprise when a large group of neighbors and friends converged to help Don harvest his com and beans this fall. Don has been battling cancer of the spine, and was unable to harvest his crops this fall by himself. That’s when his neighbor and longtime friend, Harry Cheeseman, got on the phone and started putting a crew together to arrange for this fall’s harvest. Harry and Don have worked together for the past 25-30 years. “Whenever one needed something, the other was always there to help,” stated Martha, Harry’s wife. Red Ribbon Week, October 19-27, is a joint effort of the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth, Inc. and the Chemical Dependency Service Center, Inc. to promote alcohol and other drug awareness and prevention education activities and programs. The cam-

paign slogan is “Neighbors Drug Free & Proud” no use of illegal drugs and no illegal use of legal drugs. The red ribbon demonstrates a commitment to a healthy, drugfree lifestyle. Everyone in Grundy county is encouraged to actively participate during Red Ribbon Week by wearing and displaying red ribbons. President and Mrs. Bush are the Honorary Chairmen of the National Red Ribbon Campaign. Governor and Mrs. Branstad are the Honorary Chairmen of Iowa. The objective of this grassroots effort is to present a unified and visible commitment toward the creation of a Drugfree America. At the Center Theatre … “Doc Hollywood.” Shurfine marshmallows … 2 10 oz. bags for $1. Saltine crackers … 63 cents per 1 lb. box. 50 Years Ago This Week - 1966 A late season tornado caused several thousand dollars in damage to buildings and crops along a path nearly four miles long in Shiloh and Melrose Townships late Friday afternoon. The tornado first struck around 6:30 p.m., on the Harry Heikens farm, three miles south and three miles west of Wellsburg, before ending at the George Paterni farm at the west edge of Wellsburg. Edwin Bakker, whose farm was hardest hit by the tornado, didn’t see the funnel, although one was reported to be seen in the area. At the Heikens farm, all of the windows in the garage were blown out and a chicken house was moved off its foundation. The Bakker farm, located a half mile north of the Heikens place, was left in shambles by the tornado. The federal governments farm program is to blame for our present inflated economy. That was the view expressed Monday night by Roger Fleming, secretary-treasurer of the American Farm Bureau Federation, speaking before 200 people at the Grundy County Farm Bureau annual meeting in Conrad. Fleming said the purpose of government farm policy is to drive farm market prices downward and make farmers increasingly dependent for their net incomes on government payments. Penneys men’s corduroy coat with warm pile lining … $16.98. Penneys acrilan stretch cardigan … $12.98. 75 Years Ago This Week - 1941 Louis Hull, formerly from Grundy Center, was placed in the Black Hawk county jail last Wednesday, charged with having pulled the plugs that put the Municipal Light and Power plant at Cedar Falls out of business the night before. Hull was one of the employees at the power plant who were demanding higher or union scale wages. Hull was bound over to the grand Jury and his bond was fixed at $500. The bond was furnished through union help. Hull was the plant foreman. Twenty-three people are employed by the power plant in Cedar Falls. The plant furnishes light and power for the city and for a large rural area near Cedar Falls which includes a considerable number of farm homes in Fairfield township. At the Grundy County Agricultural Defense meeting held at the courthouse last Saturday, Grundy farmers were urged to produce more food this year than ever before. Grundy farmers were asked to increase their present milk production 7 percent, their egg production 11 percent, their pork, and lard 11 percent, and soybeans 26 percent. They are asked also to increase their beef, slaughtered, 12 percent. Farmers are told that the country now has the largest beef crop of record. The defense board does not urge an increase in the number of beef raised, but in the number slaughtered for meat. No increase in com is needed because of the large supply of this crop on hand. The increased, acreage permitted for soybeans will take care of decreased acres planted to corn on many of the farms that have not been in the farm program. “Shepherd of the Hills,” starring John Wayne, starts its engagement on Thursday for three days at the Center Theatre. Dill pickles … 13 cents per gallon jug. Braunschweiger … 23 cents per lb. Home rendered lard … 27 cents per 2 lbs.

Caregivers Class to be held in Grundy Center starting in November Grace Huisman Life expectancy for Americans Class topics will include undercontinues to increase, so it is more and more likely that most adults will end up caring for an elderly parent or relative. “Care does not have to mean that the person lives in your home,” explains Brenda Schmitt, ISU Extension Family Finance Field Specialist. “It may mean that you provide transportation or other services to a person who still lives in their own home.” For most working Americans, this still requires flexible work schedules or using personal leave days, sometimes without pay. The Finances of Caregiving provides materials to assist caregivers in protecting their assets and prepare for their retirement while providing care. This five-week program, beginning November 1, 2016, will meet at the Grundy County Memorial Hospital from 6:30-7:30 PM. The five-week class will be held November 1, November 10, November 15, November 22, November 29.

Iowa River Hospice advises locals of scam “Once again some members of our community are being targeted with a direct mail fund raiser appeal to support something called the Hospice Support Fund or HSF,” said Tami Lichtenberg, Executive Director Iowa River Hospice. “If you read the fine print on the back of the computer generated letter it states that nearly 70 percent of the $1.5 million they raised last year is used for fundraising, 14 percent on public education about their fundraising efforts, over 10 percent on administration and less than 6 percent for ‘program services.’ Know that this group is

NOT affiliated with Iowa River Hospice in any way. Dollars donated to us stay in the communities we serve and support your family, friends and neighbors needing end of life care and support.” Lichtenberg advises people to consider carefully before donating to any organization, particularly those that are not local. Call Iowa River Hospice for information on how donations are used to support their work helping those in our community who need it most.

The desperate townspeople, led by Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), employ protection from seven outlaws – bounty hunter Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), sharp-witted gambler Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), troubled ex-Civil War soldier Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), mountain

man Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), expert knife thrower Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), outlaw Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Comanche warrior Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money. Based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig 40 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico, Deepwater Horizon chronicles the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and the extreme moments of bravery in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history. Lone Survivor director Peter Berg depicts the challenges that Mike Williams (Mark Wahlberg) and the rest of the rig’s crew faced as they fought for survival. Golden Globe-winner Mark Wahlberg’s performance does not disappoint as he is joined by an all-star cast including Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson, John Malkovich and Dylan O’Brien.

Collyn, a native of Conrad where her immigrant father operated several meat markets, began her relationship with the college in 1959 when Covenant was still located in St. Louis, Missouri. She then played a variety of roles with Covenant over the next 40 years. With a degree in nursing from the University of Iowa and a degree in theology from Faith Theological Seminary in Delaware—where she graduated in 1951 as the only woman in a class of 17—Collyn served for seven years as head of nursing at Berakah Tuberculosis Sanitorium, a mission hospital just outside Bethlehem in Jordan.  Collyn Franzenburg returned to the U.S. to earn a master’s degree in nursing education from Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, where she renewed acquaintance with and married a family friend, Rudolph Schmidt. She also joined the administration of the fledgling Covenant College—focusing over the next few years on the coordination of the college’s nursing education program. When the college in 1964 moved from St. Louis to Lookout Mountain, Collyn’s duties included the merger of Covenant’s nursing program with that of Erlanger Hospital.  Collyn also served as Covenant’s dean of women and headed a novel work program through which all Covenant students assisted in the housekeeping and maintenance of the college’s campus and facilities. With her husband Rudolph, who was Covenant’s admissions director and registrar from 1955 until 1991, Collyn was part of the team that in late 1963 visited the former Lookout Mountain Hotel to evaluate its suitability for adaptation to a college campus. The next summer, the Schmidts were among the earliest staff members to move from St. Louis. They lived that first year in three adjoining rooms of the old hotel, before moving to a home on Lookout Mountain where through the years they extended hospitality to thousands of Covenant students. The Schmidt team also left its founders’ mark in their support of New City Fellowship, a large multi-cultural church on east Third Street in Chattanooga. In 1968, the Schmidts had been two of a handful of people who started the Third Street Sunday school, which evolved into New City Fellowship. Racial reconciliation, both in the church and in the city, became an increasingly high priority in their personal lives. Collyn Schmidt is survived by one brother-in-law George Schmidt Holland, three nephews Steve Schmidt Marshalltown, Tim Schmidt Grundy Center, Bill Schmidt Marshalltown and one niece Marge Diamond Conrad and several nieces and nephews on the Fanzenburg side. She was preceded in death by her husband, Rudy Schmidt (2005), one Sister-in-law Minnie Schmidt (2013) One Nephew Charles Schmidt (2009) and seven siblings.

Grundy Center Kindergarten students learn about fire safety

Grundy Center Kindergarten students were able to learn about fire safety and all about the job of a firefighter on Thursday morning. Two of Grundy Center’s volunteer firefighters took the time to bring a fire truck up to the school to show kindergarten students all the equipment. They also spoke to the students about how to be safe if they ever are in a fire and what to do. The students loved when one firefighter put all the gear on to show us that we shouldn’t be afraid of them when they are trying to help us. This was a great learning experience for the students.


TC kindergartners take visit to the field

The Kindergarteners at Timothy Christian School took their first field trip of the year to an actual field! On a beautiful fall day, TC parent Dallas Wessels gave each student a ride in his combine as he harvested beans. For some this was their very first experience riding farm equipment of any kind. The four girls and four boys pictured represent one of the largest Kindergarten classes Timothy Christian has had in recent years.

City Council

I made it a special point to get back to attending our monthly council meeting. The night is October 12 and at 7 p.m., Mayor and council opened the regular council meeting and public hearings. The follwing four public hearings were addressed: Amending the municipal code concerning chickens, ducks, geese and other bothersome animals. Three other public hearing issues dealt with loan and disbursement of money for the sewer project, proposed plans for construction of wastewater system and proposed plans for total cost for the construction of southeast sanitary sewer and fain improvements. Remember to read the fine print council minutes for more complete information. Following the public hearing discussions, it was regular meeting night. Fire Chief Chris Heerkes reported there are seven persons taking EMS/EMT training. Designs are being drawn up to present to the council for consideration of building a new fire station. Building size 80 x 160. This will all have to be approved and voted on at a later date. We heard from REC representatives from Grundy Center and we will be seeing a rate increase. The council is thinking about installing security cameras in several locations and persons from Electronic Engineering presented information to take into consideration. Remember all meetings are open to the public and the council welcomes visitors. This meeting ended at 8:15 p.m., short and sweet.

The thing called migration Conservation Comments

Last week’s column got me thinking more about migration. Migrators seem to have two basic strategies – do a mass movement or go it solo. Mass movements are not uncommon. I have read about flocks of northern mallards leaving Canada in such huge numbers that they can be tracked by radar to Mexico. That strategy makes sense to me. That whole safety in numbers thing. Yet other birds are solitary migrators and shun the company of others of their kind. Some of the most determined solo fliers are our little humming birds. They don’t even tolerate each other around the feeders all that well. The males leave early on their own solo flights that lead them out across the Gulf of Mexico to the Yucatan Peninsula, a nonstop flight of more than 500 miles. Our summer goldfinches have finished their nesting and are headed south. These will be replaced by their northern relatives who will then be our resident winter birds our winter goldfinches, juncos, and sparrows. Birds aren’t the only ones migrating. Several species of bats migrate just like the birds. Some of them look for nice protected roosts and may try to enter buildings. One of the most famous migratory species of all, the monarch butterfly, is on the move right now. A few lucky folks get to see a large flock of them gather for a night roost on small groves

By KEVIN WILLIAMS Grundy County Conservation Director of trees. The monarchs we see next spring will be the great, great, grandchildren of the ones visiting our fall flowers now. Even some dragonflies migrate. Raptors are migrating and I’ve seen several species in the past week. They include cooper’s and sharp shinned hawks that prefer to follow wooded stream valleys where they

can find birds to eat which are their main prey. They sometimes visit bird feeding sites for the same reason. I have also seen white-rumped marsh hawks flying low over farm fields when I’ve been out and about driving. Females are a little larger and have brown backs while males have beautiful silver gray backs. Their buoyant bobbing and weaving flight low over the corn stalks or CRP prairie stands is always fun to watch. Although red tailed hawks are resident nesters here, the whole population shifts south. They often follow highways where the ditch grasses provide about the only habitat left for field mice that are their primary food. They hunt from a perch like a highway sign or power pole, but also hunt on the wing. And then there are the turkey vultures still working the thermals with the migrating red tails. I watched a gathering amount of them the other evening at Wolf Creek Park. At one time I counted 11 in the air above me. They are the supreme soaring bird in most of North America and are often able to ride the air currents for hours without apparently moving a wing. The last turkey vulture of the season can’t be too far away because they hate cold weather. Most of the turkey vultures we see now will winter in the southern United States. Observing the changing life around me during the fall is likely why it is my favorite season.

CITY OF LISCOMB REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING OCTOBER 10, 2016 Mayor Hank Penner called the regular council meeting of the City of Liscomb to order at 7:02 pm. Answering roll call were Jerry Gunderson, Ben Olson and Cam McCubbin. Absent were Esther Mosher and Ted Gunderson. Also present were Deputy Sheriff Beane; Darwin Bracy, maintenance; Kristi Schiebel, clerk; 1 resident and Bob Berry of Conrad. Motion made by Gunderson to approve the agenda. It was seconded by McCubbin and was passed with roll call of 3 ayes. Deputy Sheriff Beane gave the sheriff report for September. He was asked about whom to contact about animal cruelty. He stated to contact the department. Motion was made by Gunderson, seconded by Olson to approve the minutes of September 12, 2016. Motion carried with roll call of 3 ayes. Motion made by Gunderson, seconded by McCubbin to approve the financial reports for September 2016. Motion carried with roll call of 3 ayes. Motion made by Gunderson, seconded by Olson to approve the bill listing of $9,129.70. Motion carried with roll call of 3 ayes. Residents Concerns: Mr. Berry asked about removing the Odd Fellows grave markers at the cemetery. The Lodge had purchased them and there is no longer a lodge. There is a memorial stone to remember the organization at the cemetery already. A lot of the markers are in rough shape and they interfere with the maintenance at the cemetery. The council gave their approval for them to be removed after waiting 30 days. Mr. Berry and Bracy will remove them at that time. Mike Skaj requested that the council work with him on his utility bill. He was injured on Labor Day weekend and is unable to work until his injuries are healed. He stated that he will catch up when he is able. It should only be 2-3 months. The council approved this since he is current on his bill and came to the council to request this in person. Residents would like to see different properties cleaned up. This lead to a discussion on nuisance properties. Mayor Penner will contact 2 of the property owners. McCubbin will contact another one. One property owner had asked for a practice fire but has not completed the needed work to have it done. Penner will contact the city attorney about condemnation and maybe try to do all the properties at one time. Old Business: Discussion was had on the estimate for ground work west of the lagoons. Gunderson will contact the property owners about the work to be done. It was then discussed about the city’s tile line and the possibility of it being plugged. It was decided to have Bracy see about having the line looked at with a camera. Discussion was had on the sale of property on State Street. It was decided to get an estimate for the water line to be moved from going through the property. It was decided to advertise Marshalltown’s Hazardous Material Collection day. New Business: An estimate was received from Bolar and Gill for the removal of 3 trees at the school park. One is dead and 2 others were damaged with the wind storm 2 years ago. Motion made by Gunderson, seconded by Olson to have Bolar and Gill remove the 3 trees from the park for $1,500.00. Motion carried with roll call of 3 ayes. Discussion was had on the ground being torn up at the cemetery. It will be included in the mayor’s letter. Discussion was had on equipment purchases for the Community Building. Those items included: tables, food trays (fire department might help with these), new stove to replace one with only 2 working burners and lights. Olson will check into the tables, a price of $400 was given for the stove and lights could be updated for $20 a piece. Motion made by Gunderson, seconded by Olson to allow up to $450 for the light update. Motion carried with roll call of 4 ayes.

Cougars secure fourth straight playoff berth ACKLEY — AGWSR clinched a playoff berth for the fourth straight season Friday with a 48-28 victory over Janeville. The Cougars (5-2 overall, 4-1 in Eight-player District 2) will qualify as the district runner up, leading third-place Northwood-Kensett by one game with a one game left to play. The first tiebreaker would be the Cougars’ head-to-head victory over N-K. The Cougars were most effective on the ground, as they have been all season, rushing for 325 yards. Liam Stubbe paced AGWSR with 119 yards while Nathan Karsjens ran for 99 yards and Aaron Roelfs 50. Janesville finished with more than 350 yards of total offense, though many of those yards came late in the game after the Cougars had secured the victory. AGWSR found the scoreboard first as Nathan Karsjens scored on a three-yard run. A Tate Hofmeister 30-yard scoring reception off a Karsjens pass made it 13-0 after one quarter. The Cougars extend-

ed their lead to 27-0 before Janesville got on the scoreboard. Lucas Starr’s 30-yard scoring reception sent AGWSR to the locker room with a 34-7 lead. The Cougars led by as many as 34 points in the second half before a pair of late Janesville touchdown runs made it a 20-point final margin.

Fuller lifts Wolverines to district title Spartans dominate North Butler MAXWELL — Sophomore quarterback Cade Fuller had a nearly perfect night as Dike-New Hartford clinched the Class 2A, District 3 championship with a 42-7 victory over Collins-Maxwell-Baxter. Fuller, who stepped in for injured starter Rhett Ehmen and has not left the lineup since, completed 14-of-15 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns as the Wolverines (6-2 overall, 6-0 in district play) won a district championship for the second straight season. The title is D-NH’s first in Class 2A since 2001, with their others coming in Class 1A. Fuller ’s success helped the Wolverines overcome C-M-B’s effective defense against two-time Wolverine all-state tailback Trent Johnson, who finished with just 155 yards on 27 carries. Forty-six of Johnson’s yards came late in the game as he broke free for a 46-yard touchdown. Senior receiver Clayton Mapel also had a big game with eight catches for 112 yards and a pair of scores.

The Wolverine defense held an explosive C-M-B offensive attack in check, allowing just 236 yards (202 of which came through the air) and keeping the Raiders out of the end zone until the final quarter. Friday’s game was in the balance until the third quarter. A Johnson six-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and Fuller-to-Mapel 20-yard connection in the second gave the Wolverines a 14-0 halftime lead. Johnson scored on a three-yard run in the third and Mapel caught his second touchdown of the night, this on a 12-yard pass from Fuller, as the Wolverines carred a 28-0 lead into the final stanza. D-NH wraps up its regular season at home Friday against East Marshall. Its playoff opener will be Oct. 28 against an opponent to be determined. C-M-B wraps up its season at South Hardin Friday.

Spartans wrap up undefeated NICL West season By Scott Bierle Mid-America Publishing EL DORA- The North Iowa Cedar League West Conference volleyball crown again resides in Grundy Center. T he Spartans capped a perfect league campaign with a sweep of South Hardin here Tuesday and celebrated an eighth straight title. G rundy Center had little trouble with the Tigers, winning 25-11, 25-15, 25-10 to finish 6-0 in NICL West matches and 18-0 in games. “It’s always a good feeling,” said Grundy Center coach Lori Willis on the NICL West title. “Winning doesn’t ever get old. Especially winning championships, that never gets old.” T he conference win was the Spartans’ 53rd straight and the three straight games ran the set streak to 25-in-a-row after having a run of 127 consecutive sets won snapped last season. “ We didn’t block as well as I would have liked,” South Hardin coach Greg Salvo said. “We executed our gameplan pretty well, we just missed a lot of hits down the lines. Our biggest thing is finding consistency in our play.” Grundy Center outhit the hosts, 43-22 in kills as the Spartans were 85-of-93 hitting. The winners had a .376 kill efficiency and the Tigers’ .064. T he Spartans’ Kylie Willis drilled a match-high 13 kills on 27-of-28 hitting followed by Landry Luhring 11 kills, going 22-of-24 and Hailey Wallis nine kills on 19-of-20 hitting. Brooke Flater and Emmy Kracht added five kills each, while Sydney Mathews was credit See Spartans page 15

GRUNDY CENTER — Bryce Flater ran for 252 yards and four touchdowns as Grundy Center kept its playoff hopes alive with a 55-0 victory at North Butler Friday. “Overall I was really pleased with the way our kids came out,” Spartan coach Brent Thoren said. The Spartans (5-3 overall, 4-2 in Class A, District 3) dominated every aspect of the game, rolling up 439 yards of offense while holding the Bearcats to 91 yards. North Butler did not pick up its initial first down until its second possession of the second half and had less than 20 yards of total offense at halftime. “We scored a lot of different ways, a lot of kids made a lot of plays and we’re starting to see the full aspect of our offense now,” Thoren said. “Bryce is obviously a big part of it but a lot of different kids stepped up on the offensive and defensive sides and that was good to see.” Grundy Center diversified its offense. Flater carried the ball a season-low 14 times while other backs combined for 23 carries. Spartan quarterback Jake Bangasser also completed 5-of-7 passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Braidan Buhrow had three catches for 40 yards and a spectacular one-handed touchdown. North Butler struggled mightily in the first half, accumulating nearly three times as many yards in penalties (35) as it had offensive yards (12). The Bearcats found a few things that worked against Grundy Center’s junior varsity defense in

the second half and finished with 91 total yards, including 55 through the air. Sophomore quarterback Kane Allison filled in for the injured Dalton Nelson and completed 7-of-15 passes. Brandon Trees and Sam Dolan paced the running game, combining for 63 yards. The Spartans scored the first seven times they touched the ball. Bangasser threw a 27-yard scoring pass to Drew Rathe for the first touchdown and Flayer ran 44 yards for the second. Rathe returned a Bearcat punt 75 yards for a touchdown and Flater’s 37-yard scoring run made it 28-0 after one quarter. Two more Flater touchdowns and Buhrow’s touchdown grab on a pass down the right sideline gave GC a 48-0 halftime lead. Jared Krausman intercepted an Allison pass on North Butler’s second play of the second half and senior fullback Tim Knock scored on a 17-yard run two plays later. Grundy Center junior varsity players saw action the rest of the night, with Caleb Kuiper and Austin Knack combining for 62 yards. GC plays its final regular season game Friday at home against West Fork. If the Spartans win, they will then wait to see if they make the 2016 playoffs. North Butler (2-6, 1-5) wraps up its season at Mason City Newman Friday.

Rebels wrap up District 5 championship

Grundy Center's Hailey Wallis spikes the volleyball over the block of South Hardin's Dru Balvanz during NICL West play Tuesday. The Spartans swept the Tigers to post perfect conference marks of 6-0 in matches and 18-0 in games.

BELLE PLAINE — Erik Knaack returned a pair of fumbles for touchdowns as Gladbrook-Reinbeck wrapped up the Class A, District 5 championship with a 20-6 victory over Belle Plaine. The Rebels (8-0 overall, 6-0 in the district) won their 18th straight game, dating back to last year, despite getting outgained by a Belle Plaine team that needed a victory to control its own playoff destiny. As it stands, the Plainesmen (6-2, 4-2) must win at Hudson Friday and hope for either a BGM loss or that the playoff tiebreaking procedures go in their favor. Gladbrook-Reinbeck, playing without starting tailback Parker Bown, struggled to move the ball. The Rebels finished with just 208 yards of total offense, including just 51 through the air. G-R quarterback Hunter Lott completed 5-of-15 passes for 51 yards and was intercepted once. Junior Josh Peterson stepped in for Bown, rushing for 118 yards on 15 carries, though 83 of his yards came on one play.

The game was scoreless at halftime and Belle Plaine had moved into Rebel territory in the third quarter when its back lost the handle on the ball. Knaack raced 65 yards to put points on the scoreboard, though the Rebels’ usually-reliable point-after team failed, leaving the score 6-0. Peterson broke free for his 83-yard scoring run the next time G-R had the ball and this time a conversion run failed. Belle Plaine drove into Rebel territory again, only to lose the ball again. This time Knaack’s scoopand-score covered 75 yards and Walker Thede’s conversion run made it a 20-0 Rebel lead. Belle Plaine’s only touchdown came late in the fourth quarter. G-R wraps up its regular season at home Friday against Colfax-Mingo.

The Spartans met the challenge with consecutive kills by Willis, Luhring, Kracht and again Willis to close on a 12-5 run. G ame third was all Grundy, jumping to leads of 7-3, 13-5 and 21-7. Up 15-7, the Spartans scored the next six points with two kills for Wallis, one for Willis and a Kyah Luhring service ace. “I thought we played well in the second game. It just comes down to unforced errors,” noted Salvo. “We were flying around trying to make plays. I think the hustle was there. We have to go earn it. You can’t wait around for them to make a mistake.” The Spartans ended 65-of-67 at the back line and scored six service aces with one each for K. Luhring (11-of-11), Willis (15-of-15), Wallis (15-of-16), Mathews (12-of-13, L. Luhring (6-of-6) and Kracht (6-of6). S outh Hardin ended 35-of-37

with one ace at the serving stripe and led by Hannah Tripp 13-of-13. “ The serving was good, but we were not serving aggressively either,” said Salvo. Tripp’s 11 digs led the Tigers with six for Ryan and Balvanz, and five for Paige Harrell and VanderWilt. For Grundy, K. Luhring had 10 digs, L. Luhring seven and Kracht had six and four assisted blocks. The Spartans are youth-ladened as one senior and junior took the court Tuesday along with four sophomores and two freshmen. Willis noted, “It means a lot to them (girls). They started watching volleyball at Grundy Center at such a young age, and they see the winning tradition. They want to be that volleyball player. That’s how they buy into it. It continues to grow.” G rundy Center stands 21-16 overall, meaning the team was 15-16 outside of league play. “ We take some lumps on the weekends against big school and rated schools, so when it comes to playing the conference it helps us to settle, relax and focus on playing the style we want to play,” said Willis. “ South Hardin settled for fifth in the NICL West, going 2-4 with a 7-13 game mark. Grundy Center next plays Tuesday against BCLUW at Grundy Center (Oct. 18) in a Class 2A, Region 4 first-round match at 7 p.m. The Grundy – BCLUW winner advances to a quarterfinal match Monday (Oct. 24) again in Grundy Center against Ogden.

Comets end regular season on winning note

By ROB MAHARRY The Grundy Register CONRAD- The BCLUW volleyball team rebounded from a sluggish start and ended its regular season on a winning note, defeating Aplington-Parkersburg 19-25, 25-22, 2516, 25-22 in a non-conference match Tuesday night in Conrad. “We played awesome. The best we have played all year,” BCLUW coach Kristen Garber said. “It was great to see.” The Falcons (12-14) broke a 5-5 tie early in game one and led by as many as six points at 15-9 and later 24-18. The set ended when senior Dani Johnson slammed a spike, and A-P looked poise to hand the struggling Comets (22-8, 4-2) another late season loss. It was BCLUW that took the early momentum in game two, however, jumping out to an 8-4 lead and leading by as many as six. The Falcons did make a comeback, though, getting the score to 21-20 before the Comets scored the next three points to make it 24-20. After two more A-P points, the set finally ended when Easton Swanson landed a spike to give the Comets a 25-22 win. From there, the Comets pounced

on the Falcons in game three en route to an easy 25-16 win and put away the match with a hard fought 25-22 game four victory. The eight seniors on the team—Sam Ubben, Jordyn Beeghly, Kate Goecke, Skylar Veldhouse, Leah Yantis, Macy Kock, Katey Choate and Olivia Macy—were all recognized before the match. Swanson led the offense with 14 kills, and Ubben added 11 to go with 19 digs and 14-of-14 service in her final home match as a Comet. BCLUW had a season-high 17 total blocks, led by Swanson (six) and Yantis (five), and setter Cate Nason had 38 assists. As a team, they served 91-of-94 with seven aces and recorded a kill efficiency rating of 0.204. Johnson led the way for A-P with 15 kills and seven total blocks, and Kaitlyn Mohwinkle added 14. Jenna Bruns had 33 assists and 12 digs, both team highs, and the team served 77-of-86 with five aces. BCLUW opens postseason play on Tuesday night on the road against Grundy Center in Region 4 of Class 2A, while A-P will also hit the road to face Denver in Class 2A Region 6 play.
