By ROB MAHARRY The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER- The Grundy County Board of Supervisors narrowly passed a motion that will implement a comprehensive Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance plan for the county during its regular meeting on Monday morning. Assistant County Attorney Emily Staudacher, County Attorney Erika Allen, County IT/GIS Director Don Kampman and assistant director Jesse Huisman all attended the meeting to discuss the matter, and Staudacher recommended that the county hire a third party to implement trainings for employees and essentially serve as an insurance policy for the county in the event of a data breach. The Iowa State Association of Counties (ISAC) also has a policy, but it is not as comprehensive as the one offered through Carosh, a private company, at a cost of $12,750 for the first year. Staudacher relayed instances of public institutions being hit with massive fines—the University of Massachusetts-Amherst was recently forced to pay $650,000 after a breach—noting that the county’s insurance does not cover such fines because they are meant to be punitive. Kampman added that while there is no way to definitively prevent a breach, having a strong compliance policy in place would be beneficial in mitigating the risk and lessening the potential penalties that come with a HIPAA violation. According to its website, Carosh specializes in “affordable HIPAA Consulting services, for small to medium sized medical practices, solo practitioners, healthcare organizations, and their business associates nationwide.” The company currently has over 30 clients, mostly in Iowa, and Grundy County does not have a formal compliance policy of its own.

Kruse Tree Farm brings all the trimmings of Christmas By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER – For many people, the Christmas season doesn’t begin until radio stations start playing holiday music. For others, it begins when retailers unveil their newest stock of holiday merchandise. Still more, some people can’t call it Christmas until there’s snow. But for people like Loren Kruse, the Christmas season is the focus all year long. Since 1981, Loren Kruse and his family have operated the Kruse Christmas Tree Farm located just outside of Grundy Center. The 2,000-tree plantation offers a variety of pine and fir trees, as well as wreaths, mantelpieces and more. Unlike a regular business, Kruse’s tree farm is only open five days each year. But despite their limited hours of operation, Kruse says running a Christmas tree farm is a year-round production.

“You think about Christmas every day of the year when you’re a Christmas tree farmer,” he said. It begins in April, when Kruse plants his new seedlings. After that, there’s weed control, pest inspection and control, tree shaping, trimming and more. “It’s most interesting in July when it’s ninety degrees and ninety percent humidity and you’re working with the trees, knowing that there’s some family that’ll think this tree is awesome, even though it’s far from their mind,” he said. When the trees are ready for harvest at the end of November to beginning of December, hundreds of families come out to the Kruse Farm to pick out their perfect tree each year. Kruse said that one his favorite parts about this time is watching the same kids come back each year, a little taller and a little older, but always

Christmas in Conrad set for Saturday By ROB MAHARRY The Grundy Register CONRAD- As December rolls around and the holiday season is in full swing, Conrad is preparing to hold its annual celebration, “Christmas in Conrad,” in the downtown area on Saturday. This year’s festivities will feature a host of familiar activities and a few new ones in the community, and all are invited to attend. The day will kick off on Saturday morning with a pancake breakfast hosted by the fire department at the American Legion hall, where the boy scouts will also sell wreaths and swag. Various downtown businesses will hold specials, food and drink tastings and open houses throughout the day. All day beginning at 9:00 a.m., the Festival of Trees will be held in the Alexander Meeting Room of the

library, and the fun will kick into high gear at 5:05 p.m. when Santa Claus arrives downtown. Old Saint Nick will then light trees at Dorothy King Park and visit with youngsters from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. inside of the library. Trolley rides around Conrad will run from 5:15 to 7:00 and are free, and the relatively new snowball drop will be back, with hundreds of discounts and prizes available to be redeemed at local businesses. The American Legion Auxiliary will also serve a beef burger, hot dog and soup meal at the legion hall from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The popular ice carver will be back outside of GNB Bank, and cookie decorating and games will be available through MidwestOne Bank and Conrad Family Chiropractic.

Santa and Mrs. Claus have been frequent visitors to the Christmas in Conrad celebrations in past years, and they will be back on Main Street again this Saturday. (Grundy Register file photo)

1st Five brings resources, help to children and families in Grundy County

Not your average winter weather

Though it's almost December, hail and thunderstorms made their way through north central Iowa on Monday afternoon, and this tornado took shape between Grundy Center and Beaman. So far, no major damages have been reported. Tornados were also spotted in several other areas around Grundy and surrounding counties, including Hardin and Butler. (Photo by Travis Case)

By Michaela Kendall The Grundy Register GRUNDY COUNTY – 1st Five isn’t a new program in Grundy County, but it is one that not many people know about, despite the fact that it can offer a wide variety of resources and assistance to children and families around the county. The program, which is currently in place in 88 of Iowa’s 99 counties, is a non-profit public/private partnership that connects children and families in need with resources and assistance in their county. This assistance can range from support for children with developmental delays, support for parents, assistance with housing and clothing, assistance with food stamps, legal aid, financial assistance, nutritional education, resources for those experiencing domestic violence and much more. 1st Five Community Program Coordinator Brandyce Frink said that many people struggling with any of the issues listed above also struggle with access to assistance with these problems, which is where 1st Five can help. “In this country we are facing monumental health concerns that arguably are situated within this grey

area of cultural inaccessibility to the healthcare system,” Frink said. “We believe our program is changing health outcomes for the next generation by being that bridge to a positive experience with the healthcare system and the explicit community support we offer our community members.” 1st Five accomplishes this by partnering with medical providers in each county to refer patients to the 1st Five program if they express a need for certain assistance or resources, or if the provider senses the family could benefit from 1st Five services. Here in Grundy County, the Grundy County Memorial Hospital

is a 1st Five partner, and providers at the hospital have already started referring patients to the program. The program referrals are completely free, and there are no income or insurance guidelines, though because of the high demand for assistance and resources, families and children must have a doctors referral to receive assistance from the 1st Five program. Aside from providing assistance to families in various areas, another main goal of the program is to promote early screenings for developmental delays in children aged birth to five. Frink said that early detection and care at this key stage in development can affect a person throughout their life. “Birth to [age five] is a critical time when brain architecture is mapping key neural pathways that form cognitive well-being for the life of an individual,” Frink said. “Extreme poverty and other social and personal stressors such as toxic stress can re-route key neural pathways that impede normal brain development in children.” See 1st Five page 3

The gift certificate was donated to the Festival of Trees by The Landmark.

Amy chose to display a Christmas tree decorated entirely with fresh flowers, except for the ribbons. The flowers included white lilies, red roses, red carnations, red berries, green button poms, pink heather, and Leucoden. Each flower was placed in a small vial of water which

was attached to the tree. Three other fresh arrangements were displayed near the tree. These arrangements contained flowers similar to those on the tree. Amy’s 9 year old daughter, Taylor, assisted with decorating the tree.

From page 1 Christmas memories forever is pretty cool.” Kruse said that in his line of work as a farmer, he’s lucky to be able to experience the personal satisfaction of providing a customer with something that he knows will bring them joy. “Delivering another semi load of corn to the co-op doesn’t have a lot of personal joy in it,” he said. “But seeing that family that’s chosen to come to you to pick their family tree, that’s got a lot of emotional value to it.” Kruse and his family will be wrapping up the last two days of the selling season at their farm on December 3 and 4.

Supervisors

From page 1 “Our program, based on best practice policies outlined by the AAP [American Academy of Pediatrics] focuses on community engagement, community partnership, and early identification of developmental delays in children birth to five years old,” she said. “Primary care providers refer families to our program that are lacking the personal and social supports critical to well-child development. We link those families to community agencies to facilitate better overall health outcomes for both the child and the family.” Frink said that 1st Five and their care providing partners work hard to get families and children the help they need locally, and if there is no provider for a certain kind of assistance in one county, they can link those in need with other providers in a neighboring county. “We really want to promote the relationship between the community and healthcare,” Frink said. “Our goal is to connect people with the help that they need, and ultimately to connect them with that help and service over the long term.” For more information about 1st Five services, visit www.idph.iowa. gov/1stfive or speak to your local care provider.

From page 1 With the inmates at the jail, mental health services, veteran’s services and worker’s compensation claims for secondary roads, to name a few examples, the county frequently deals with information protected under HIPAA. Supervisor Harlyn Riekena, however, commented that the policy seemed burdensome and unnecessary. “Whatever we do, we can’t comply. If someone hacks you, it’s totally impossible to comply,” he said. After much discussion, supervisor Mark Schildroth made a motion to implement the policy through Carosh at a cost of $12,750 for the first year, and those in attendance indicated that they believed it would drop in the following years. Chuck Bakker seconded it, and it passed 3-2 with a yes vote from

CONRAD Conrad American Legion Auxiliary Unit #681 met on Monday, November 21, 2016 at 1:30 PM at the Conrad Legion Hall. The meeting was called to order by President JoAnn Klein with 13 members present. The colors were presented by Sarah Doughtery and Mary Ann Miller followed by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and the Preamble of the Legion Auxiliary. Chaplain Sue Kitzman led the group in prayer, followed by a moment of silence for the MIA/POW and deceased veterans. Opening exercises closed with the singing of “Amazing Grace” accompanied by Miller on the piano. Secretary Sarah Kitzman read the roll call of officers with all eight present. Minutes of the October meeting were read and approved and correspondence shared. Unit Treasurer Susan Sams gave the treasurers report. Bills were presented and approved. Committee reports were as follows: Cards – Bev Rabbitt reported

she will eventually have surgery at either the Mayo Clinic, Iowa City or Des Moines. As she prepared, she knew that there would be some things that would never be the same: obviously, she would lose her hair, she would lose weight and the feeling of cold temperatures will become almost unbearable for her. She enjoyed ice cream for what will probably be the final time last weekend. “You’ve got to look at things positively. I said, now I won’t have to worry about the gray hair coming in, so there you go,” she said. “And there’s my new weight loss program.” As they have in the past when others faced similar battles, the Conrad and BCLUW communities have rallied around Ubben in her time of need, and she has been overwhelmed by all of the support thus far. It hasn’t even been limited to Comet country: the Grundy Center volleyball team sent Ubben a special note, and the South Hardin basketball team is planning a blue out and fundraiser to support her during the game against BCLUW in Eldora on Friday. Her church’s youth group has even volunteered to decorate her house for Christmas. “We just live in the best place

Conrad Legion Auxiliary meets

Ubben receives outpouring of support as she battles cancer

By ROB MAHARRY The Grundy Register CONRAD- It’s a diagnosis no one ever wants or expects to hear, and a battle no person can truly prepare themselves to fight. But it affects millions of people each year, and Conrad Chamber/Main Street Director Darla Ubben’s visit to the Conrad clinic three weeks ago for stomach pain led to the discovery of something much deeper: she was living with stage four colon cancer that had spread to her liver. As she prepared to enter chemotherapy on Tuesday, Ubben shared her story, reflecting on the whirlwind of the last three weeks while keeping her trademark positive outlook and hoping to live her life as fully as she can. “It’s been the longest and the shortest two and a half weeks of my life,” she said with a laugh during an interview on Monday. Because Ubben had not had a colonoscopy as she is under 50 and had no family history of colon cancer, the news came as a complete shock to her. “(The doctors) think I’ve probably had it for a year or two,” she said. “Unfortunately, (colon cancer) is one of those silent killers that people don’t learn about until it’s way too late.” A CT scan and a biopsy at the emergency room in Marshalltown finally revealed the cancer, and within three days of first going in to see a doctor, Ubben was having surgery to remove eight inches of her colon and part of her small intestine. She was back home the next Wednesday—six days later— and said she had no plans to miss any of her kids’ activities, as her daughter Samantha is a senior on the BCLUW basketball team, which played at Aplington-Parkersburg on Tuesday night. Ubben still has 11 spots of the cancer in her liver and began chemotherapy on Tuesday in Ames but returned home later that day with a pump. Overall, she will undergo eight to 12 treatments over a period of four to six months, and

ever, that’s all I can say. People are so awesome,” she said. “I feel strong because people are praying. I feel like God’s opened every door and met every need.” While work has taken a back seat during treatment, Ubben still stays active as the Chamber/Main Street Director: she worked for several hours on Monday and hopes to attend the Christmas in Conrad celebration this weekend. As one of the driving forces behind the community’s Main Street program and the downtown renovation, she still feels committed to its future and has tried to stay involved in whatever way she can. In her absence, C/MS board members and volunteers have stepped in to make sure that everything runs smoothly, and Ubben hopes to return to the job in her usual capacity eventually. For now, she’s adjusting to her new reality and cherishing every second she has with her husband Eugene and their three children, Conner, Samantha and Madison. Ubben has learned more about the human body and drug interactions in the last few weeks than she had in 45 years of life before, and she’s thankful for all of the medical advances that have made it possible to treat her condition. During the Christmas in Conrad celebration, NuCara Pharmacy will hold a “Darla Strong” raffle to raise money for the Ubben family, and t-shirts with that phrase have been sold around town through Hutch Screen Printing. Anyone wishing to donate can contact Betty Haker or Ruth Peterson of the Chamber/Main Street board.

BCLUW sends teams to First Lego League regionals BCLUW SCHOOLS –Ever since 2007, they’ve trekked to the big Iowa “World Series, Super Bowl and NBA Finals” of elementary school engineering and problem solving. The BCLUW schools first sent a single team to the First Lego League Regionals back in 2007, found it to their liking, and have continued on. This year has two teams of middle schoolers bound for Marshalltown site of the competitions. It is a team test of engineering and thinking skills, and organizers turn on the extravaganza every year. Everything’s done to make it more than a little like a Super Bowl, a World Series or those NBA finals. The competition involves demonstrations of robot programming skills – that’s the LEGO in Lego League. The maker of LEGO’s provides a small stripped down robot platform, but the kids in the teams have to add the attachments and program the device to activate everything. The test is done on obstacle courses. But that’s just part of it. Thinking skills and other engineering tricks come into play in other phases of the competition. For instance, this year the Union schools team came up with an adjustment to help a sightless man better interact with his Seeing Eye dog. Then one of the teams went to work on another project, which will be judged in Marshalltown. It involved research into the chances of the Avian Flu could beyond populations of production poultry, and into home and confined bird pets.

Marshalltown Community College will host the FIRST® LEGO® League Regional Qualifier competition on Saturday, Dec. 3, in the MCC Student Activity Center. The public is invited to attend the opening ceremony and robot challenge competition, as well as the closing awards ceremony. The “Olympic like” opening ceremony will begin at 9 am in the Student Activity Center, with 36 teams and up to 360 participants in 4th through 8th grades. As many as 60 volunteers are donating their time to make the event possible. “The competition theme of this year’s competition is Animal Allies, and we’re excited about having all of the students on our campus again for this unique event,” says Brenda Heitmeyer, Computer Networking Faculty. “The events in the Student Activity Center will be open to the public, but the individual sessions are not,” Heitmeyer explains. “In addition to learning about robot design and core values like teamwork, this year there will be an insect zoo and animals from Blank Park Zoo for the participants to see and handle, in keeping with the Animal Allies theme.” Competitors at the Dec. 3 Regional Qualifier event will be from Adel, Ames, Ankeny, Baxter, Boone, Brooklyn, Des Moines, Gilbertville, Granger, Grundy Center, Iowa Falls, Johnston, Knoxville, Lamoni, Marshalltown, Montezuma, Union, Urbandale, and Williamsburg. FIRST LEGO League for grades 4-8 introduces children to the fun

and experience of solving real-world problems by applying engineering, math, science, and technology. FIRST LEGO League is an international program for children created in a partnership between FIRST and the LEGO® Group in 1998. Each year, the program announces an annual Challenge to teams, which engages them in authentic scientific research and hands-on robotics design using LEGO MINDSTORMSâ technologies. After a minimum of eight weeks, the FIRST LEGO League season culminates at high-energy, sports-like tournaments. In the 2016/2017 season, more than 255,000 students are participating in over 80 countries. “This is our 9th year of hosting the event, so we anticipate that it will run smoothly and be a great experience for all the participants and volunteers,” Heitmeyer adds. “This event would not be possible without the tremendous support we receive from so many individuals, many of whom volunteer each year because they find it to be so rewarding. I want to give a special thanks to our planning committee members: Nathan Davis, Connie Gardalen, Dr. Danielle Kness, Mark Monroe and Lara Thoms.” BCLUW takes two teams of 5th through 8th graders to the competition, one team of seven and one of six. Chris Rhinehart is the team coach and Iowa State University’s School of Engineering has long been a key sponsor for the event.

Local Youth to Represent Iowa at 2016 National 4-H Congress Marshall County 4-H’er Lauren Mosher will be representing Iowa as a delegate to the 2016 National 4-H Congress Nov 25-29 in Atlanta, GA. National 4-H Congress recognizes the delegates’ outstanding leadership and community work and is an opportunity for leaders in 4-H to meet and learn from each other. Congress will include keynote speakers, tours of Atlanta, service work around the city, workshops and an international banquet and formal gala.

“This is one of the highest recognition opportunities for senior 4-H’ers in Iowa,” said Cayla Taylor, 4-H educational opportunities manager with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “These youth were selected because they have demonstrated exceptional skills in leadership, citizenship and overall achievement.” Lauren Mosher, Conrad, is the daughter of Jim and Brenda Mosher. Mosher has been a member of 4-H for eight years and has participated

in beef, food and nutrition, citizenship, leadership and communication projects. She has served as president, secretary and reporter of her 4-H club. Mosher has participated in her county 4-H council and youth committee, Iowa 4-H Youth Conference and Iowa 4-H Council. “4-H has helped me realize I want to be a contributing member of my community as well as an effective leader, mentoring younger members,” said Mosher.

Memory Lane

A look back through The Grundy Register Compiled by Michaela Kendall 10 Years Ago This Week - 2006 Plans to replace worn parts and upgrade efficiency of the 25-yearold sewage treatment plant serving Grundy Center could cost as much as $684,315. That number comes from the engineering firm the Grundy Center City Council is hiring to draw up plans and specifications for the work. If the project continues to fruition, the job would likely be completed about this time next year, at ‘the earliest, and more likely in spring of 2008. Five homes in Grundy Center, plus the Arlington Place assisted living facilities, will be open this season for the Holiday Tour of Homes Sunday, Dec. 3. The event will be from 4 p.m to 7 p.m. Holiday Tour of Homes tickets are available at local banks and downtown specialty stores “Christmas Around the World” is this year’s theme for Conrad’s annual holiday celebration to be held on Saturday, Dec. 2. Businesses will feature decorations arid trees reflecting the customs of their selected countries. Area residents are encouraged to stop in the businesses to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season, and possibly learn a little about various countries from across the globe! At the Center Theatre … “The Santa Clause 3” and “Happy Feet.” 12 pack of Coke products … $2.78. Fresh, salted, in the shell peanuts … 99 cents per lb. 25 Years Ago This Week - 1991 The Grundy County Museum and Hardin County Historical Society are planning a joint effort entitled “A Pioneer Christmas Festival.” This event will be a nostalgic look at Christmas as it was celebrated long ago. The Pioneer Christmas Festival will be held Sunday, December 8, and give participants a taste of Christmas in 1850,1870, and 1890. The festival will begin at 5:30 p.m at the Hardin County Historical House, in Eldora. There, participants will enjoy Christmas as it was celebrated in an 1890 Victorian home. Grundy County recorded its fourth traffic fatality for 1991 Tuesday when a South Carolina man died in a two car accident east of Dike on Highway 20. Kerman Speas, 19, of Bishopville, South Carolina, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Deirdre Quinn, 19, of Dancer Hall, Cedar Falls. Quinn was westbound on HWY 20 when she observed a vehicle on her side of the road. Joel Dickman, 25, of Grundy Center was eastbound on HWY 20 and was allegedly in the process of passing several vehicles. Quinn observed Dickman’s car, hit her brakes and slid sideways, and was struck broadside by Dickman’s vehicle. Speas died at Sartori Hospital, Quinn was admitted with multiple injuries, and Dickman was treated and released. At the Center Theatre … “Highlander II.” Cherry pie filling … 97 cents. Fudge covered Oreos … $2.59 per box. 50 Years Ago This Week - 1966 A Grundy Center farmer has taken the lead in Grundy county’s 1966 corn yield contest, according to unofficial results obtained this week by The Grundy Register. James E. Miller has produced 175.86 bushels of No. 2 corn to the acre — believed to be an all-time county high — from a 10-acre contest plot on his 240-acre farm 1 ½ miles east of Grundy Center. In spite of a 30 mile an hour wind and below-freezing temperatures, the final Christmas street decorations were put in place Monday morning. Using modern line maintenance equipment, Marlin Klar and John Ash of the Grundy Center Light & Power Department are shown above [in a photo] putting the decorations in place at the corner of G Avenue and 6th Street.

Howard Davis will be now deputy county sheriff. His selection to the post was made by Sheriff Leslie Craven among a list of several applicants. The selection was approved by the County Board of Supervisors at their meeting held Monday. The new deputy is 51 years old. He was a farmer up to a year ago when he moved to town. He is presently employed at Walter’s Oil Station in Grundy Center. The deputy vacancy in the sheriff’s office resulted when the former Deputy Dick Kern resigned to take over management of the Standard Oil Station in Grundy Center. Flavorite ginger ale … 49 cents for three 24 oz. bottles. Hi-C orange drink … 4/$1. Glade air freshener … 49 cents per can. 75 Years Ago This Week - 1941 The Supreme Court of Iowa ruled last week that Nell Kanipe was entitled to the verdict and judgment awarded to her by the Grundy District court, for damages for the death of her husband, who was electrocuted April 7,1939, while working on the Grundy County REA high line. In the $18,000 damage suit in the Grundy district court, heard before the late Judge Wood, the Jury awarded Nell Kanipe the sum of $2,484.00 on December 12, 1940, for the accidental death of her husband. The R.E.A. was not satisfied with this decision and took the case to the Supreme Court of Iowa. Chester A. Kanipe was an employee of the Cento Construction Company at the time that he was killed by contact with a live wire on the high line, in the trial of the case, the widow of Kanipe charged that Otto Tennant, general maintenance man for the R.E.A., was negligent in turning on the electricity on the wires on which Kanipe was working, when Tennant should have known that this lineman was working on the lines and that some warning should have been given when the electricity was to have been turned back onto the lines. Attorneys for the Grundy County Rural Electric Cooperative asked a reversal of the decision by the district court in favor of Mrs. Kanipe, on the grounds that Otto Tennant was a special employee of the Cento Construction Co. at the time Mr. Kanipe received his injuries, that there was no evidence from which the jury could find, that the R.E.A. or its employees were negligent, and that Kanipe himself was guilty of negligence in failing to use ground chains, as an extra precaution in case the wire on which he was working could have been live. However, the Supreme Court held that the judgment of the lower court was correct and that the Jury properly rendered its verdict, and that Kanipe’s widow should be paid accordingly. Harl McNeal, a farmhand from Edwards, Texas, was sentenced to 30 days in the county Jail by Justice W. G. Strack last Friday for stealing a wrist watch from the Earl Rickert farm near Reinbeck last Wednesday afternoon. McNeal worked for the Pioneer Seed Corn Company at Reinbeck until the close of the season. After that he husked corn in the vicinity of Reinbeck. He had husked corn a few days at the Rickert farm. The Rickert family were away from home Wednesday afternoon. When they returned, their kitchen had been tracked up by muddy shoes. Mr. Rickert’s wrist watch for which he paid $24.75 a few years ago was missing. Food had also been taken from the refrigerator. “Dressed to Kill” starts its engagement on Friday for two days at the Center Theatre. Pure apple cider … 30 cents per gallon jug.

Tis the season for trivia

As we draw nearer and nearer to Christmas, which is easily the day I look forward to the most each year, you will probably start to notice that all of my columns from now on will likely have something to do with Christmas… You’ve been warned. And with that being said, I’ve decided that the best way to kick-off my string of Christmas columns is by getting back to the roots of this column – trivia! In honor of the holiday season, here are 10 fun facts about Christmas that you can use when the conversation gets dull at your next holiday party: 1. Santa Claus is based on a real person: St. Nikolas of Myra, who lived in Turkey during the fourth century. After his wealthy parents By Michaela Kendall died when he was young, St. Nikolas, who was known for being generous and kind, gave away his inheritance and traveled the country helping the sick and needy. St. Nikolas is the patron saint of banking, pawn-broking, pirating, butchery, sailing, thievery, orphans

Grassley Q & A: EpiPen Pricing

Question: Why are you looking into the pricing practices of an FDA-approved product known as an EpiPen? Answer: Like so much of my oversight work, the issue of exorbitant price increases for a key medicine came to me from Iowans. They wanted answers about the high prices they were paying for their children’s medicine to treat severe allergic reactions. The widely known auto-injector is called an EpiPen and requires a prescription. It is used to inject a life-saving dose of epinephrine to counter an allergic reaction. Dozens of Iowa families contacted my office, writing letters to note the financial hardship that the price hike was creating to keep this life-saving device on hand for their kids. Since 2007, the drug manufacturer has increased the price for a two-pack dose from $100 to $600. Considering many families stock EpiPens at home, in the car and at school -- and in some cases for more than one child in the family -- the huge price increase is creating a big time hardship in household budgets. What’s more, this is a recurring expense for families considering the medication has a one-year shelf life. Families at the mercy of the pharmaceutical company’s pricing decision rightfully want answers. As one Iowan wrote in her letter: “I will pay whatever it takes” to keep her son protected against his severe peanut allergy. Once I started looking into the price increases, I discovered even more troubling issues linked to the drug manufacturer’s pricing strategy. Keep in mind that the taxpaying public pays for a lion’s share of pharmaceuticals prescribed and dispensed to millions of patients though the Medicaid and Medicare programs, as well as millions more of our nation’s veterans and members of the military. This raises a red flag as to how Mylan’s price structure affects taxpayers and consumers, the federal government, state governments and insurers. The deeper I probed, even more troubling questions kept cropping up. It turns out that Mylan, the drug manufacturer, reportedly classified EpiPen as a generic under the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program, rather than as a brand name drug. That misclassification cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars because it allowed for the EpiPen to qualify for a 13 percent rebate rather than a more generous 23.1 percent rebate under Medicaid. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), taxpayers spent $797 million on EpiPens through Medicaid from 2011 to 2015. Medicare spent $335 million in that time period. What’s most troubling in all of this is that the federal government was told in March 2009 – more than seven years ago – that the EpiPen was misclassified as a generic, rather than a brand name drug. And yet, no apparent action was taken and taxpayers paid hundreds of millions of dollars more because of it. The American people deserve to know why their government apparently failed to act sooner rather than later and what justification Mylan used to launch such a massive price increase on consumers. I’ll continue to work to get answers.

transparency in this matter? Answer: For the last several months, I have ramped up bipartisan oversight efforts to get answers from the executive branch. In August, I wrote a bipartisan inquiry to CMS asking for more information regarding EpiPen’s classification as a generic drug, and specifically, the impact on the taxpaying public. Once it came to light that the misclassification has cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, I followed up with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to find out how in the world the drug was misclassified in the first place, let alone since 2007. In addition, I’ve called upon Mylan to reimburse the Department of Defense (DoD) for millions of dollars the DoD overpaid in taxpayer funds for the drug, up to three times the discounted price the DoD receives for drugs dispensed at military facilities. It appears that for nearly a decade, the DoD overpaid for EpiPens at its retail pharmacies due to the misclassification, costing taxpayers upwards of $50 million. Now, it’s even more important to find out if Mylan knowingly misclassified EpiPen to avoid larger rebate payments at the expense of our military families and taxpayers. In another bipartisan letter, I wrote to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regarding reports that Mylan engaged in possible anti-competitive business behavior, including exclusive contracts with schools, possibly precluding competition in the drug market. I received affirmation from the FTC that stopping anti-competitive behavior within the pharmaceutical industry is a top priority. Let’s be clear that the pharmaceutical industry operates in a complex regulatory structure to protect patient safety. Policymakers also must work to ensure that companies aren’t engaging in anti-competitive practices in violation of the anti-trust laws or the regulatory process. In our system of free enterprise, profit drives job creation, wage growth, innovation and economic activity. Competition is the magic sauce that can create the next blockbuster drug as well as reduce drug prices. That’s why I conduct robust oversight to keep the playing field level to foster healthy economic growth and competition in the marketplace. No matter which sector of the economy, from pharmaceuticals to agriculture, it’s essential to keep competition fair and square and hold to account those who don’t play by the rules. It’s just as important to make sure the government faithfully enforces the law on behalf of the American people. With high drug prices on the minds of so many Americans, it’s imperative that we foster competition to keep prices down and quality and innovation up. In addition to my tireless oversight work, I’m pushing legislative solutions that would push back against anti-competitive behavior to strengthen competition and hold down drug costs. The bipartisan bills I’m working on would help bring more generic drugs to market for consumer benefit. They are the Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples (CREATES) Act and the Preserve Access to Affordable Generics Act.

and royalty. 2. According to legend, St. Nickolas saved three poor sisters from being sold into slavery or prostitution by providing them with a dowry so they could marry. He did this by sneaking into their house (through the chimney of course) and filling their stockings with gold coins. This is one story as to how ‘hanging a stocking’ became a thing on Christmas. 3. According to data analyzed from Facebook posts, two weeks before Christmas is one of the two most popular times for couples to break up. 4. Christmas purchases account for 1/6 of all retail sales in the U.S. Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are purchased and sent, and approximately 30-35 million (real) Christmas trees are sold each year in the U.S. 5. Here’s a strange Christmas tradition for you: In Poland, spiders or spider webs are commonly used as Christmas trees decorations. According to legend, a spider wove a blanket for Baby Jesus, and Polish people consider spiders to be symbols of goodness and prosperity at Christmas. 6. The ancient Druids considered mistletoe sacred because unlike other plants, which die during the winter, it remains green and bears fruit. They thought it had the power to cure infertility and nervous diseases, and even ward off evil. 7. The poinsettia was originally brought to the U.S. from Mexico by Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico in 1825. The poinsettia was originally cultivated by the Aztecs, who believed the plant’s brilliant red color symbolized purity, and was often used medicinally to reduce fever. 8. There’s a town named ‘Santa Claus’ located in southwestern Indiana, and all letters addressed to Santa in the U.S. are sent there. 9. The first president to put up a Christmas tree in the White House was either President Franklin Pierce in 1856 or President Benjamin Harrison in 1889. In 1901 President Teddy Roosevelt, an environmentalist, banned Christmas trees from the White House that year. 10. American scientists calculated that Santa would have to visit 822 homes a second to deliver all the world's presents on Christmas Eve, travelling at 650 miles a second. And there you have it. Now yule have plenty of fun facts to share at your holiday gatherings this Christmas season!

Smallbone & is directed by Ben Smallbone. Priceless is the first film from the Smallbone Brothers, whose sister is Christian recording artist Rebecca St. James. Inspired by true events, Priceless is a powerful drama/thriller about James Stevens who was, at one time, a good man with a great life -- but that was then & this is now. After the tragic death of his wife & losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, & unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash -- no questions asked. But when he discovers “what” he is delivering is actually “who”, he is compelled to save 2 beautiful & frightened sisters who are unaware of the danger that awaits them. Can love, strength, & faith redefine his past & change the course of his future? This unlikely hero risks it all to save these women, confront the forces that oppose him & ultimately discover the life he was created to live.

CURRICULUM REPORT – ELEMENTARY LANGUAGE ARTS: Mrs. Petty, Mrs. Silver, Mrs. Zoske and Mrs. Johnson spoke about the elementary language arts. The elementary has two major building goals: Building a culture of positive leadership and Literacy, helping our students become great readers. In preschool the curriculum is called Creative Curriculum and is implemented in small groups with a strong focus on vocabulary and language, phonological awareness, knowledge of print, letters and words and comprehension. Incorporated with this is Sit Together and Read with a strong focus on building early literacy and print awareness skills through quality read alouds. In kindergarten through 2nd grade Scott Foresman Reading Street Common Core Series is the curriculum used. There are six units in kindergarten covering ideas such as: How do we live, work and play together? How are animals and plants unique? How do changes affect us and so on. During the week in kindergarten time is spent on a “Big Book” where not only do the students listen and learn amazing words, focus on finding meaning through pictures and text and phonics but also before they start reading, they think about the title, the illustrator, the front and back cover of the book. Students make predictions about what they think might happen in the story. In first grade students have five units they focus on: Animals, Tame and Wild, Communities, Changes, Treasures and Great Ideas. Students work on enriching vocabulary, high frequency words, phonics skills and text-based comprehension skills. Throughout the day in first grade they have whole group reading where they introduce reading skills. There are also learning centers for writing, independent reading, listening, word work, ipad and computer time. In second grade there are weekly assessments on vocabulary, comprehension, phonics and language skills as well as spelling. There is a strong focus on phonics skills to build better readers and weekly writing activities and sharing to promote better speaking skills. Third and fourth grade has a reading workshop which is a whole group mini lesson with a lesson on one focused skill for the day such as asking questions before, during and after reading, making mental images of a text, and making predictions. Reading partners work together to discuss the skills that are being taught. The goal in independent reading time is to give kids time to read as much as they can. Kids have a notebook they keep track of their reading by logging books read, along with thoughts and ideas within the book. The class comes back together as a whole group to share strategies that were used during independent reading and to share examples of outstanding student work. In Title I and Special Education LLI is the new curriculum that is being implemented this year – Leveled Literacy Intervention. Each student is assessed using the Benchmark Assessment System and then receives instruction based on their instructional reading level. LLI provides systematic instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. WIN group is a common thread through all the elementary grades. WIN stands for “What I Need” for students to do their best learning while at school. It’s an intervention time when teachers pick essential skills that students are tested on – a common formative assessment. FIRST LEGO LEAGUE PRESENTATION: Mrs. Rhinehart has been the Awesome Aces and Spectacular Spades Sponsor for the last ten years. This year’s theme is Animal Allies – students had to figure out how to communicate with animals, a way to help or improve the relationship with animals. The 6th and 7th grade students, The Spectacular Spades did a song and dance presentation about the loyalty between a dog and its owner and they have decided to invent a new adjustable dog harness for guide dogs after meeting a visually impaired student at their Iowa State field trip. The ISU student needed something that would help her make left turns with her dog so her body wouldn’t be in the way. With this new harness, instead of having to have precise footwork, all she has to do is flick her wrist – they purchased a dog harness and then cut a portion off and made it swivel and added a telescoping arm. The 8th grade students, The Awesome Aces presentation was on bird flu. They also created a song and dance to explain the importance of stopping bird flu. They created two mats to be used, both being made out of burlap and laid inside a plastic tray. The first tray has a solution with Virkon-S in it to sanitize shoes and works against 500 strands of bird flu with no negative effects. There is a second tray with also a burlap pad to dry your shoes after disinfecting them. Students will compete on December 3rd at MCC. POSITIVE SHARING: Middle School Principal Dirk Borgman shared Mrs. Penick has been having her computer students continue with coding programs – students are coming up with great projects using Scratch programming. Mrs. Glaser has been having FCS students do lots of cooking – it’s a great hands on class which the students really enjoy since they get to eat their work. Mr. Penick and the leadership group held a “Mix It Up” lunch where students were assigned different lunch tables and given conversation topics to go over while sitting with other students to encourage students to branch out with who they talk to and learn about others in their class. Teachers hosted a 5th & 6th grade Halloween party after school on the Friday before Halloween. Many of the students stayed and had a great time doing different activities. A Halloween dance was held for the 7th and 8th graders with Mr. Pieper as the DJ and Mr. Rhinehart chaperoning. Mr. Borgman said the middle school had a great Veterans Day program to honor our veterans and teach our students about Veterans Day. Elementary Principal Mitch Parker shared that in a literacy lesson, Kristen Garber used the app, “Tellagami” (a cartoonist app) to help bring alive the students work. Students created a biography of them and then spoke into the app, as well as creating a character resembling them. The students then presented their “Tellagami” creation to the class. Trisha Zoske led a small group reading project in which students read the book, Pinduli – a story about a hyena that is teased by a dog, lion and a zebra. The hyena wants to disappear and does everything she can to make this happen but nothing goes her way. After reading the story, the students used Google Slides to recreate the story to share and present to the class. A goal was to share with the class how important it is to use positive words, as words (good or bad) can be powerful. Mr. Parker also shared as the elementary continues to search for ways to provide interventions to meet student learner needs; several staff members attended an intervention class training entitled, PRESS.

PRESS provides a guidebook for databased decision-making and K-5 student interventions. High School Principal Kristyn Kell shared Ms. Frost’s Art II classes have been busy creating Christmas/Holiday prints. Students have been using prints to create Christmas cards. They are caving them out of a rubber like material. In Mrs. Vanderah’s chemistry class students were learning about chemical reactions. In order to learn direct composition chemical reactions, students created silly putty. They were able to see, and feel the reaction. In Mr. Butler’s Mechanical Drawing class, students are working on real life skills. Mechanical drawing provides students the opportunity to focus on their drawing skills and helps prepare students who want to take interior design in college. Mrs. Kell also shared the elementary students did a Halloween walk through on their way to the nursing home. The high school kids gave high fives as the elementary students paraded through the school. The high school students loved seeing the elementary kids in their costumes and the elementary students enjoyed coming to the high school. OUT OF STATE TRIP APPROVALS: Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bartling spoke on a trip they would like to take band and vocal students on to Kansas City, April 6-9, 2017. They have 27 students that have responded that they would like to go on this trip and 19 have not yet responded. The cost would be approximately $500 per student so there will be fund raising opportunities for students to help lower the cost to families.

There will also be a music exchange with another high school band and choir that will also include a clinic.

Bake In the Fun Making a cake with a treat hidden inside is as easy as 1-2-3 with Fillables Bakeware from Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advantage. Because the bakeware does all of the work for you, there are no special baking skills required; just pour in the batter and bake. Then, fill the pockets in the cake with any treat you like and spread icing to cover the surprise. Next, add the top cake layer, ice the whole cake, slice and serve.

reating one-of-a-kind desserts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to take hours in the kitchen or even exceptional baking skills. With a little imagination and the right tools, you can whip up surprisingly delicious sweets that will surprise and delight your friends and family.

)RFXVRQĂ DYRU

If your baking repertoire typically consists of white cake and chocolate frosting, spice things up a bit by experimenting with new fillings and flavor combinations. Opt for complementary or contrasting tastes for a truly delectable dessert. For example, pair fudgy chocolate cake with tangy berries, or see how a bold flavor like lemon adds a new dimension to a mild vanilla.

Add a special touch

Infusing new flavors into your favorite cake or brownie recipe is surprisingly easy when you use bakeware made for the purpose. Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advantage Fillables Bakeware helps home bakers easily create â&#x20AC;&#x153;treat-filledâ&#x20AC;? desserts. Each bakeware set comes with two pans: One pan creates the bottom half of the cake and forms indentations in the cake you can fill with fruit, puddings, candy and more, while the second pan creates the top half of the cake, which hides the surprise fillings.

Shape it up

Artfully applied frosting and other decorations can instantly dress up a basic cake, but another option is upgrading the shape of the cake itself. In addition to traditional square, round and sheet cake pans, the Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advantage Fillables Bakeware collection includes mini heart cakes, fluted cakes, mini loaf cakes and a cake cones pan. These special shapes make it easy to create enviable desserts out of classic recipes. Find more surprisingly easy dessert ideas at FillablesbyBakersAdvantage.com.

Flater, who is the leading rusher in school history at Grundy Center, was named the defensive MVP as he collected an interception on the way to a 31-7 Iowa win. He finished this season fifth in the entire state in all classes with 2,049 yards rushing, and he has not yet made a college commitment. He was a first team all-state selection in Class A.

By JAKE RYDER The Grundy Register Gladbrook-Reinbeck’s Thomas Mussig was named the captain of the Class A all-state team by the Iowa Newspaper Association, one of five Rebels earning first-team honors. Mussig is the second-straight rebel to earn the title of all-state captain after Colton Dinsdale received the honor in 2015. The Rebels went 13-0 this season en route to a second-consecutive state championship. Joining the Rebel linebacker on the first team were teammates Jacob Walters at offensive lineman, Hunter Lott at quarterback, Mason Skovgard at defensive line and Erik Knaack as a first-team defensive utility player. Also in Class A, Grundy Center’s Jordan Hook was named first-team offensive lineman and Bryce Flater was named a first-team offensive back. Mussig accumulated 86.5 tackles in his senior season, with 47 solo stops and 12 solo tackles for loss. Walters was second on the team behind Mussig with 53.5 tackles and had four solo tackles for loss with two quarterback sacks. Lott, the Class A championship game most valuable player, completed 91 of 141 passes for 1,771 yards this season, throwing 18 touchdowns compared to four interceptions and gaining 370 yards on the ground with seven more scores. Lott added 53 total tackles on defense with four fumble recoveries. Skovgard had a team-leading nine quarterback sacks with 39 total tackles for the Rebels. He also picked up a key fumble recovery late in the first half of Gladbrook-Reinbeck’s championship victory over Bishop Garrigan. Knaack was the team’s leading receiver with 28 catches for 523 yards and six touchdowns, scored two touchdowns on punt returns and was tied for the team-lead with four interceptions. For the Spartans, Hook was a key part of the offensive line that helped Grundy Center gain 3,467 yards of total offense in a 6-3 season that ended up short of the postseason. Flater was a major contributor to Grundy Center’s offensive efforts, gaining 2,049 yards on the ground with 33 touchdowns and adding three more touchdowns on eight receptions for 148 yards.

G-R linebacker honored by INA

By JAKE RYDER The Grundy Register REINBECK – For opponents that lined up against Gladbrook-Reinbeck's football team, Rebels coach John Olson noted a common theme in the feedback from the opposition's coaches. “They'd say, '54 is the man, 54 is really good,'” Olson said. No. 54 is Thomas Mussig, a senior linebacker captain for G-R who possessed not only an ability to play his position that put him a step ahead of the rest this season, but was also someone that Olson saw at a young age being capable of achieving great things as a leader in whatever he does. “I'm not saying anyone can have almost 100 tackles,” Olson said, “but for the people in our district to notice him during a game, they see how important he is to us from an Xs-and-Os standpoint.” After already being named the defensive most valuable player of G-R's district, Mussig added another accolade to a growing list as the Class A captain for the Iowa Newspaper Association's all-state teams. His 86.5 total tackles, including 12 solo tackles for loss, gets him in the conversation for such a high honor. But Olson sees Mussig's innate ability to lead by example as what put Mussig in the right position to be considered for such an honor. “You can always develop that leadership, but I think he's always been a leader,” Olson said. “When I taught him in 3rd and 4th grade P.E., people wanted to run around like Thomas, wanted to pick him first on the team. … People around here have been seeing him for years now doing good things in the classroom or being active in community service or the fine arts and there's nothing but good things said about Thomas.” Mussig was surprised to be chosen for the honor but relishes the opportunity to set a good example and reflect the pride he has for his team. “I feel like the ambassador of my team,” Mussig said. “I feel like we made our mark as a 13-0 undefeated team and that I'm the one representing them.” That's a level of responsibility that Mussig is intimately familiar with as one of the captains for the Rebels as they made their march to the first undefeated season in school

Thomas Mussig history. For Mussig, being a captain in day-to-day life during the season meant helping to get his teammates motivated to do hard work on the field for practice, but also understanding that the power entrusted in him by his teammates to help lead the team meant responsibility fell back on him, too. “Whenever something would go wrong in practices, Olson would go back to the captains and say, 'This one's on you guys,'” Mussig said. “We're the captains and we have to get our team going.” When it comes to Mussig's improvement in becoming a better football player, Olson credits Andrew Billerbeck, G-R's inside linebacker coach and former Rebel himself. Olson considers Billerbeck one of the best to ever play the linebacker position at G-R despite only playing about one-and-a-half seasons due to an ACL injury in his junior year. “(Billerbeck) sees the game the way Thomas sees the game,” Olson said. “They see things so fast that they have the instinct to go the right way all the time. He takes those first two steps toward the ball so fast and at 6-foot-3 it gives him leverage. … He plays really physical, almost to the point where he doesn't see a (blocker) in front of him, he can run through him. It puts him a step ahead.” After a regular season of gaudy offensive numbers for G-R, Mussig felt the postseason was the time for the Rebels' defense to shine. G-R truly shined bright in the state playoffs with a 13-6 win over Lynnville-Sully and a dominant 35-0 performance against Montezuma getting the Rebels to the UNI-Dome.

The competition was tougher against St. Ansgar and Bishop Garrigan, but G-R finished its undefeated season giving up no more than 19 points in a single game all season, and no more than 14 prior to the championship classic against Garrigan. “Throughout the championship game we'd go up to each other and say, 'defense wins championships,'” Mussig said of firing up his teammates on defense in the Dome. “And that's exactly right, our defense pushed through since the first game against Grundy Center and went all the way through to our final game with Bishop Garrigan.” Mussig didn't expect to be named captain, especially when he heard who had joined him on the first team of INA's all-state squad: quarterback and championship game MVP Hunter Lott, linemen Jacob Walters and Mason Skovgard and two-way threat Erik Knaack. “I couldn't do it without guys like those in front of me,” Mussig said. “Jacob Walters and Gage Murty were our defensive tackles and if they don't do their job, I don't have a good game. All of my success comes from being around some of the best players in the state.” That selflessness has taken Mussig far in life, with Olson noting that there's a laundry list of things Mussig does for the community, whether it's helping with basketball training camps or even pitching in for cleanup after a severe storm, or sitting in the library to read books to children. “There's just so many little things he does that go unnoticed, and it's hard to remember every single one,” Olson said, “But every one of those things has been very helpful and he's just been a great kid.” Mussig's ready to enjoy the winter playing basketball with his teammates, but he does know it will be important to impart what he's learned at his time with G-R football to help the Rebels to continued success. If G-R's next batch of leaders is anything like Mussig, it'll be through actions, not words. “It's what you don't say to them, it's what you do,” Mussig said. “This summer, I'd get done with work and go to the weight room and work as hard as I could. Those that have the most success did that because they were dedicated. We don't need to say anything. We just work as hard as we can in practices and in the games and have fun.”
