Opportunity Village Festival of Trees planned Kick off the 2016 holiday season at the 21st annual Festival of Trees, taking place Dec. 1-4 at Opportunity Village in Clear Lake. More than 100 Christmas trees, wreaths and swags of all sizes will be on display and for sale at the Village’s Kinney Lindstrom Center gymnasium throughout the weekend. Various volunteers, including local organizations, businesses and residents, decorated the trees. Events planned during the festival include special activities for children and families, the Lights on 5K run/ walk, an opening-night gala and cookie walk, as well as live musical entertainment. The festival is a fundraiser for Opportunity Village, a nonprofit organization that supports more than 600 individuals with disabilities through 30 North Iowa communities. Proceeds from the event will benefit services for those supported by the Village.

BY ZACH CLEMENS In July of last year, West Fork Community School District broke ground on an ambitious project to build a multi-million dollar wellness center for West Fork students and community members to enjoy. The completion of the new West Fork Wellness Center is almost finished. “We are very close to the initial cost estimate,” said West Fork Superintendent Darrin Strike. The original estimate was between $3.5 and $3.6 million. The build could not have been possible without a significant gift from Sukup Manufacturing, which donated almost $250,000. The estimate also included the demolition of the old weight room and the creation and paving of the new parking lots outside of the center. The approximately 30,000 square foot structure has already been put to use by West Fork athletes, as the wrestling team has begun using the wrestling room and different athletes have been able to use the weight room. There will be a cardio room with a dozen different machines that arrived just before Thanksgiving. A physical therapist from Synergy Physical Therapy and Athletic Training will have an office inside the center to cater to West Fork athletes and community members, and will start seeing patients as early as next week they hope. The target opening date was August 20, and Strike said they probably would have hit that target date, but the moisture in the concrete became an issue. “When that got pushed back, it pushed every other contractor back and delayed the project,” Strike said. There is also a new director at the Wellness Center. Ciara Conley, 21, is a graduate of William Penn University with a degree in exercise science. She had worked at a YMCA before coming to West Fork.

Memories provided by the Wharf • West Fork Wharf provides an outstanding experience BY ZACH CLEMENS For almost three years, Bob and Kim Jensen have provided Sheffield and the surrounding communities with a place to eat, drink and remember the good ol’ days at West Fork Wharf on Gilman Street. Both Bob and Kim grew up in the area and both graduated from Sheffield-Chapin High School, and have been married for 14 years. They saw an opportunity and bought the building— which used to be Paul’s Steak and Seafood—in January 2013, and remodeled the entire place. There are two sides to the restaurant, one side has a definite bar atmosphere, with a large U-shaped bar in the center and high tables, with the other side a traditional supper club.

New security measures for West Fork BY ZACH CLEMENS There will soon be some new security features at West Fork schools in both Rockwell and Sheffield. The West Fork Board of Education unanimously approved the purchase of equipment in order to be able to lock all doors on both campuses throughout the school day. The decision was made after community members came to the October board meeting and voiced their concerns over school safety. West Fork Superintendent Darrin Strike asked Electronic Engineering out of Mason City to come out and assess the campuses. The company had previously installed the school’s magnetic locks on all the doors. “I contacted them and said we would like to be able to lock down our facilities during the school day,” Strike said. They looked at all the entrances and determined what the school can do to lock it all down. The company suggested installing cameras at the main access points with an intercom system and buzzer. This way a visitor will have to buzz the office, and if deemed safe, someone from the office can unlock and let them in. There are three different entries on the Sheffield campus and one at Rockwell. The east side entrance at the high school will be opened at designated times for students to enter and then closed once classes begin. Strike hopes that the new cameras will be installed by the end of the calendar year, and definitely be installed before the end of the school year.

DECEMBER 6, 1956 Shirley Schaefer torched the Sheffield Community School Diggerettes girls’ basketball team offensive Tuesday night when the Chapin girls invaded the local hardwood, tallying 24 points on 10 from the field and four of seven from the gift line. She was assisted by Karen Harper who posted 14 points, Palma Pullen with 3, and Kathy Sullivan 2. A concerted effort to hold the pivot from scoring back-fired and turned the other forwards scoring free. The score by quarters read 15-8, 21-10, 38-17 and the final 43-20. Phyllis Hawke, Nancy Schumacker and Sharon Blankenship were in the defensive zone. Coach Dale Langmann gave his entire squad game experience. Included on the roster were Judie Atkinson, Nancy Galvin, Jean Taylor, Sharon Long, Phyllis Berndt, Irene Wearda, Christy Engebretson, Marlys Beyer, Cynthia Rohn. Shirley Barney and Janet Carter both scored nine points to head the Chapin team offensive. Betty Borcherding hit from the field for 2 points. Esther Dannen and Carol Carter also saw action in the offensive zone. Esther Smith, Ruth Ann Schaefer, Marjorie Jensen and Loraine French held down the defensive duties for the visitors. The team made six field goals and 8 of 22 free throws, while committing 14 personal fouls. The Sheffield club made 15 field goals and 13 of 23 gift shots. They were charged with 16 personal fouls. Tuesday night on the Sheffield floor the Claydiggers posted a 94 to 44 win over the Chapin boys’ cage squad. The first team of the winners was benched after the first half, the reserves playing the balance of the contest on near even terms. The score at quarter times read 40-2, 64-10, 75-34 and the final.

The Claydiggers made 36 field goals and 22 of 35 tries in charity lane, committing 35 personal fouls. Chapin boys scored 13 field goals and 18 of 46 free throws. They were charged with 21 personals.

ter, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Crawford at St. Paul, Minn. Mr. and Mrs. Larry Meyer and daughter have returned to their home in Geneva after a Sunday evening visit in the Don Heuberger home. DECEMBER 4, 1986 The Sheffield-Chapin Spartanettes opened the 1986-87 season with a loss at the hands of the Manly Falcons. The Lady Falcons swooped into town, pecked away at the locals during the first half had them down only 22-20, but devoured them in the third quarter as they flew away with a 44-28 lead, and glided home with the 57-42 victory. S-C failed to generate any consistent offense, connecting on a mere 17-44 two pointers and 1-8 three pointers for 34.6%. From the charity line the locals hit a terrible 5-10 for 50%. The guards gave up heighth at every position, but battled the deficit in good fashion. Tracy Blood had a fine evening as she grabbed 12 off the glass and had five thefts. Diane Dohlman found herself in early foul trouble, but still managed three bounds and two thefts. Mollie Norris played a fine floor game, hustled her way to one bound and two steals. Penny Etnier came off the bench and worked hard for her two bounds and one theft. Deanna Hubka rounded out the stats with one theft. The forwards were led by Denise Harper who had a fine evening, chipping in 33 big ones, hitting 15-25 two pointers and 0-7 three pointers and 3-4 charity shots. Cheryl Smit hit six points on a notso-good 2-10 from the field and two of four charity shots, but had a big evening on the boards as she collected five big ones. Janna Heuberger found the evening cold as she failed to connect on any field goals in eight attempts, but hit one desperation three-point attempt to end the game. Jennifer Peters played in the relief role, failed to score but played a nice floor game. Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Schaefer, along with other members of the family, were Thanksgiving Day guests of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Peterson and Jessica at Cedar Falls. Thanksgiving Day dinner guests of Lola Yelland were Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Yelland and Josh of Woodbine; Mrs. Ethel Jacot, Archie Olsen, both of Mason City; Mr. and Mrs. Dan Yelland, Kelly and

Colleen Naber, Betty Bergman and Kay Ames were at guard. The team made 15 doubles and 13 of 21 in the protected zone. They fouled 19 times, six of which benched Naber in the fourth quarter. The home team in the Swaledale gym Friday night blasted away at the basket and the ball found its mark for a 40 per cent average and an easy 79 to 41 win over the visiting Spartans. The host quint held a 3-34 margin at the end of the first quarter, a 16-52 edge at the half, and with a liberal sprinkling of subs was ahead 23 to 64 three-quarters of the way. Pacing the winners was Steve Park with 18 points, trailed by Ken Riemers who netted 15 markers. Bob Hitzhusen added 10 tallies, Paul Ward 5, David Newman 4, Doug Bram 4, Gary Hansen 3 and Steve Bram 2. The team was credited with 31 from the field and 15 of 25 free throws. They fouled 13 times. It took Jeff Yelland to pool game scoring honors with 21 points from 10 field goals and 1 of 5 free throws. Marlin Meints pumped in 4 four from the field and 2 of 3 gift shots for 10 points. Larry Freie Bob Weber, Duane Kruckenberg, Dan Schoepf and Cliff Bonjour each added 2 points, and Keith Sheriff with 1 of 2 gift shots. The team made 17 from the field and 8 of 19 in charity lane. They fouled 15 times. Coach Jim Cuvelier gave his entire squad a chance, and two of his first and two of the second choice members of the squad played only a small part of the contest. Statistically aside from the scoring, Spartans played a good game. The winners shot 75 times and made 31 from the field for a 40 per cent average. Spartans tried 46 times and hit with 17 for a 37 per cent average. In the rebounding department the winners pulled in 30 topped by Reimers with 9. Spartans reclaimed the ball 35 times, Yelland getting 10 and Meints 8. The simplest deduction would be that the Spartans just did not shoot enough times. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schreiber were Saturday evening dinner guests in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Johnson at Hampton. Other guests were Mr. and Mrs. Carl Richtsmeier and family of Hampton. Ron Richtsmeier, who recently returned home from Vietnam, was the honored guest. Mr. and Mrs. Fred A. Rohn were week end visitors in the home of their daugh-

The establishment will now be known as Redmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inn. Carl D. Foster left Tuesday for Des Moines where he will attend a tax school until the end of this week. DECEMBER 8, 1966 Friday night on the hardwood at Swaledale Sheffield-Chapin cage teams split North Star Conference wins with the host Rockwell-Swaledale girls and boys. Barb Eddy with 27 points for Rockwell-Swaledale from 9 doubles and 9 of 14 gift shots, was easily the outstanding individual scorer of the game at Swaledale. But the triple threat forward line of the Spartanettes kept the visitors out front just a little bit all the way. Spartanettes held the edge 12-11, 29-20, 38-30 at the quarters and a final 46-43. Bev Levitt potted 19 points with 8 from the field and 3 of 13 in charity lane. Ilene Schmalbeck notched 17 tallies and Marilyn LaRoque 10. Sue Riis, Jamie Just and Nicki Schrupp held down the defensive posts and turned in a good account, holding the host club to 43. R-S girls have been averaging 78 points in the conference. Schrupp pulled in 9 rebounds, Just 8 and Riis 7. The going was tough and Coach Tom McGreevey held substitutions to a minimum. Comparatively the Spartanette forwards played well the first half, but could not break over the top and get going in the second. Coach McGreevey said â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re improving, but still have a long ways to go, and the girls realize it.â&#x20AC;? The team made 21 from the field and 8 of 25 free throws. They fouled 16 times. Eddy with 27 held game scoring honors. Donna Cole added 6 points, Janelle Rice and Kathy Ames each 5. Rouline Walkner,

THE ALTERNATIVE

6+()),(/',2:$

The doors on the cart shed have closed, the carts put to a long winters nap, the clubs cleaned (I think) and put into hibernation thus we must move on. The moving on consisted of 15/2 Ronnie Symens vacuuming, dusting and turning on the heat in the Cribbage Den 2 to allow the cribbage boys their initial long winters battle of the pegging war. Each season it seems we have to remember the boys who have left us for their own world of cribbage, Chuck Rabey, Den 1 owner-Rog Birdsall and Rusty Wilbur Rust. I certainly have to remember with great joy my friend Fritz Schreiber who along with me started this entire venture into the game at Levittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Service Station umpteen years and umpteen games of cribbage ago. So off we go folks, the cob webs subside as we begin counting and recalling combos, runs, double runs, and the unique rhetoric of course. We had eight boys show up for the initial challenge of who is the best or we should say luckiest player. Oh my the boys did not forget all the slams, digs and name calling over the summer months. All the games took off in great strides with little or no scruples, no honor and no integrity and we all love it! It seems old Tommy me man Severe had his behind glued to the losers table as he did not move until the very last game, wow good thing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaving shortly for Florida. Old Slagls that be one Dallas type was on the opposite end as he nestled into his chair at the winners table until of course the last game which sent him to the losers end. Cliff

was right back in stride blaming his partner for stupid moves and shaking the walls with his mellow toned voice. I truly believe that Cliffy and Dally could be auctioneers without megaphones. Then there is old quiet mouse like Ronnie me man Symens just sits back and waits till everyone has counted and then counts out twenty-four just to rub it in a tad. Old Davey boy Levitt usually enters filled with info from Nuehringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and enlightens us with all that literary info which we truly did not knowâ&#x20AC;Ś yaw sure and the Pope is Lutheran. Old Nellie, that be on Gary type entered the Den 2 with his utility belt on carrying a hammer, screw driver, pliers, pocket of nails guess he forgot we were playing cribbage not building a house. Rog one old Madsen picked right up by always throwing the wrong card in the crib. We can tell he was not a math teacher. Billy Bob right in there still uses his slow tactic of placing the cards and snapping the corners with ahhhhh that makes 31. Believe it or not he did not even make an honest mistake in day one. Oh my golly where did the summer go and wow here it is cribbage time. Ronnie Symens in his farm wisdom said if you cross a chicken and a cement mixer you get a brick layer. Severe in his animal wisdom said if you cross an elephant and kangaroo you get huge holes all over Australia. Old tow truck Levitt. told me when a frog parks illegally it gets toad. Oh golly folks Bazinga hopes you filled your tummies with turkey, ham, dressing, cranberries, and pumpkin pie and can hardly wait for Christmas to do it all over again.

Fritz Groszkruger For years, alternative energy development was stifled by petroleum subsidies; among them military protection rackets and depletion allowances. The subsidies were touted as a way to prop up national security and help low income people get around. But if the cost of oil was realized at the pump instead of hidden in tax breaks and subsidies, investment in other forms of energy would have been more attractive. Any government-forced transfer of wealth results in misdirected economic decisions. The only way to know which form of energy is best is to let millions of consumers decide without interference. The market is already full of products that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shown we want through purchase. So in order to cash in on a way to compete with proven goods and services, a crisis is used. In the history of Earth, we are now in the lower one-quarter of the range of Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s temperature, yet there is some serious money to be made. In spite of the fact that nature has provided us with the ultimate storage vehicle for solar energy, fossil fuels, we are to believe that these tiny objects (relative to Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface) such as power plants and cars can drastically change the climate. In the early 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we started farming, I dug tunnels to the hog water tanks through drifts of snow the pigs would walk over as if there was no fence at all. We hung a curtain to cordon off the kitchen because the wood cook-stove was the only way to keep us warm. Now I only use insulated coveralls for ringing the Salvation Army bell at Fareway. The climate is warmer. The climate science debate is focused on whether the climate is warming and laws to fix the problem, while ignoring the consequences of those laws and the benefits they will bring. Susan Solomon (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top climate scien-

With the Thanksgiving weekend come and gone, we all had an opportunity to reflect on what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thankful for this year. I hope you all had a great holiday and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends. This past Election Day, I was elected to serve my eighth term in the Iowa House. I want to thank the citizens of House District 54 for the honor of representing you in the House as your State Representative. It is a humbling experience and a privilege to receive your continued support. I was also recently re-elected by the House Republican caucus to continue serving as the Speaker of the House. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great honor to serve in this role as it gives me the opportunity to hear from a variety of Iowans from all across the state and provides a stronger voice for our communities. Now that the elections are over, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to put politics aside and put the needs of Iowans at the top of our minds.

Your friend and neighbor at your time of need.

tists, and her colleagues issued a report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It states that eliminating carbon dioxide emissions from human activity would be offset by natural processes and not slow the trend toward a warmer climate. On the other end of the scale is the most optimistic estimate of the results of a world totalitarian dictatorship (Invade China?). If we are all controlled to such an extent, the temperature of the earth would be reduced by less than one tenth of one percent of a degree F in a hundred years. We are presently spending $1.5 trillion per year on the global warming industry and according to the alarmists that is still not enough. Imagine how lifest yles would change if we were doing â&#x20AC;&#x153;enough.â&#x20AC;? This cloudy, windless day would have me huddled by a window with pencil and paper, not at this keyboard and search engine. (Google, by the way, is a joke, controlled by climate change industry tax feeders.) The bottom line is that we should tell the bio-fuel and windmill scam artists to take a hike. We should be skeptical when a crisis is touted as a way to fight a market that is truly our friend. The market makes us wealthy. Government control makes us poor. Those of us who are concerned about income inequality, the cost of medical care, and the cost of living in general should reject the idea of punishing the productive class to reward opportunistic snake oil salesmen. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine self-described constitutional conservative, Representative Steve King, and the taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; watchdog, Senator Charles Grassley actually believe the windmill subsidies are constitutional or a moral alternative to freedom. Bringing home the bacon to Iowa costs someone else, somewhere. On this Thanksgiving Day I am thankful we have none of these monuments to stupidity within sight of our farm.

With a little over a month to go before the 2017 legislative session begins, House Republicans will continue listening to Iowans and begin putting together a pro-growth agenda to move our state forward. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely continue our work on several issues like funding for water quality and flexibility for schools districts, among other items. As always, we will also be tasked with constructing the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget by living within our means and making investments in the priority needs of Iowans in a responsible way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also looking forward to working with the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Majority Leader, Bill Dix. While a new Republican majority in the Iowa Senate gives the House a partner to enact bold reforms and initiatives that were previously blocked, some things wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. Things like responsible budgeting practices, giving taxpayers a seat at the table, and investing in the priorities of Iowans will continue under a unified Republican state government. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to come next session and eager to get back to work making Iowa the premier place to grow a business or raise a family. As always, please keep in touch. With session fast approaching, I want to hear your thoughts and ideas for how we can grow our state.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long week...but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still upright and taking nourishment! Some may not care...but I do! Finally ended up at the docâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and got some antibiotics to help the cause. I still have the cold...but I THINK itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting better! And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a busy week here at the office. Got more done than I had anticipated...although it took a couple of evenings and part of Sunday. That always reminds me of the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; days when I worked all those extra hours. Not being of sound mind...I did enjoy it! My only regret is not spending the hours I should have at home. And now that I can spend more time there, I have no desire to! Sometimes I just come up here to the office and do something. And heaven knows...thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something to do here! Coming up to keep me on my toes is basketball season and the two holidays. I guess having the holidays fall on Sunday is great...except for the fact that someone decided to take Mondays off, too! Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win! My thought! Home...while there most of the time spent doing not much of anything. Just no ambition! Wednesday morning up early and headed to Altoona to spend part of the morning with Lidia in observance of Grandparents Day. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know I was coming...and the smile on her face was worth a fortune! Back to the office by 12:30 and tried to make up for lost time. Part of Wednesday evening was spent in front of the tube in the living room...and the rest of the time in front of the tube in

bed. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to go to sleep, I change the channel to SiriusXM and fall asleep listening to music. And... usually wake up in the a.m. listening to music. (This is a nightly thing!) Thursday spent some time with Shirley and just plain resting...trying to shake this cold. Friday back to the office to play more catch-up and get the regular Friday work done. Friday night a repeat of Wednesday evening. Up early again on Saturday and headed back to Altoona to celebrate Thanksgiving with Angie, Nic and Lidia, and with Nicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents and other relatives. Late afternoon and afraid that I might turn into something...I headed back north. Home, changed clothes, and came up to the office until 10 p.m. The eyelids were starting their downward trek and I figured Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d best go home. Sunday up, cleaned up, and spent the afternoon with Shirley. We had supper/dinner, did some shopping, and decided to forego Bingo for the evening. Back home, back into the work clothes and spent a couple of hours here at the office. Angie and I decided that we would take a half day off and go Christmas shopping in a couple of weeks. That means another trip to Des Moines...this time to part with my money! We normally do this shopping date before Thanksgiving...but Angie had her tonsils out a couple of weeks ago and she was in no shape to go shopping. (I wonder if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a first?) Anyway...itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good...and busy...week. Just the way I like it...except for the cold! Be good, kids! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showtime!

NIACC to host UNI MBA program The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is partnering with North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) to offer its MBA degree program on the NIACC campus. The first cohort of students will begin the program in January, 2017. This MBA degree is an executive-style program intended for business professionals. To make the program accessible to working adults, classes will be held on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Each course will be taught over an 8-11 week time frame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This new program highlights NIACC and UNIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing commitment to providing students with unique opportunities to advance their education,â&#x20AC;? said NIACC President Steve Schulz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By bringing the program to the NIACC campus, we give students the opportunity to belong to a cohort of students with similar goals. The in-person aspect of a graduate program, as opposed to an all online option, allows students to learn from their peers, make connections, and advance their careers at the same time.â&#x20AC;? The U NI MBA program has been named a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Business School MBAâ&#x20AC;? by the Princeton Review. MBA graduates typically see an average salary increase of 4650 percent, according to academic studies. UNI MBA Program Director Dale Cyphert shared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are delighted to be partnering with NIACC to bring this distinctive program to the Mason City area. Professionals across the region will now have access to our highly respected MBA program conveniently close to where they live and work.â&#x20AC;? There are currently five seats still available. Interested students must apply by Dec. 1, 2016 to be considered for the January cohort. More information about the program is available on the UNI website at business.uni.edu/MBAMasonCity.

Ann Fienup, senior instrumental and education major at University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, will be the guest harpist at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Franklin Chorale. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Franklin Chorale to showcase local talent

BY ETHAN STOETZER The Franklin Chorale is set to usher in the holiday spirit with a blend of traditional and classical holiday tunes. Artistic Director for the chorale and current Hampton-Dumont High School Vocal Instructor Jesse Bunge will continue his direction of the chorale for his fourth year, along with the piano accompaniment of Glenda Green, H-D elementary school music teacher. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance will also feature Cedar Falls native, Ann Fienup, is a senior instrumental and education major at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, playing the harp. Fienup, 22, has been playing the harp for 12 years, and has been a part University of Minnesota (UM) Symphony Orchestra and UM Wind

Ensemble, the La Crosse Symphony. Her interest in the harp began right before the first grade, when she went to the Waterloo Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra at a Lollipop Concert. There, she was picked as a volunteer to assist the harpist in demonstrating the instrument. From there, Fienup was hooked. She learned piano the next year in first grade, then took to the harp. Fienup will be accompanying the chorale through several arrangements, and will also play an independent set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know a lot of people have heard typical harp music, and I like showing that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than that one dimensional,â&#x20AC;? Fienup said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m planning on having a mixture of classical, jazzy and maybe some sort of carol. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solidified it yet, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to sharing the different sounds that the harp can make.â&#x20AC;? The Franklin Chorale will be on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Hampton. Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for children.

on 35 years of service

After 35 years of working in the finance industry, Marge Schurman is retiring from her position as Market President at the First Security - Dumont office. Her open house will be at the Dumont office from 9 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12 p.m., on Friday, Dec. 9. The public is welcome to join her in celebration. Marge was born in Laramie, Wyoming. She attended Laramie Public Schools and then went on to Schurman graduate from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Science degree in Accounting in May of 1979. While in college, she also twirled baton with the University marching band. Since graduating from the University of Wyoming, Marge has worked 32 of her 35 working years in banking. Marge started her career as an Accountant in Wyoming and later, when she moved to Iowa, as an Accountant for Community Elevators, Inc. in Kesley, Iowa. Her first position within a bank was as Assistant Cashier and Student Loan Officer at State Bank of Dumont. Later, State Bank of Dumont was sold to Liberty Bank and Trust in 1993, and Marge was promoted to Loan Officer. In 1997, Liberty Bank and Trust was acquired by Commercial Federal Savings and Loan and then, in 2001, First Security bought that branch. Marge served as Vice President/ Branch Manager during the years Commercial Federal Bank owned the office and Marge continued with this duty when the branch turned over to First Security. In 2012, First Security promoted her to Market President. Margeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary duties throughout the years has included real estate lending, commercial and agricultural lending, consumer lending, and operations. She also has been self employed as a tax preparer. Marge has also been a very involved volunteer in her community. In the past, she was a member of the Butler County Women in Banking group, she was a board member of

the Butler County Board of Health, a Mentor at Hampton-Dumont Schools for four years, Trustee at United Methodist Church, a member of the Hampton-Dumont Girls Athletic Booster Club, the Secretary for the Hampton-Dumont Dollars for Scholars Board, and she was also Past President and board member of the Dumont Community Library for many years. Currently, she is a Loan Committee member for the Butler County REC, Treasurer and Past President of the Dumont Community Club, Member of the Hampton Rotary, Alternate Loan Committee Member for Blackhawk Economic Development, and Vice President of the Franklin General Hospital Foundation Board. Not only has Marge been busy in the banking world and as a volunteer in her community, but she and her husband, Curt, also have a farming operation that consists of producing corn, soybeans, and alfalfa and also managing a cow calf herd. Curt has been farming near Kesley, Iowa for 45 years. He and Marge met when she was visiting a friend that had moved to Iowa from Wyoming. They later married. Marge and Curt have two children, Shauna Schurman-Zhuravlev and Kendra Mosman. Shauna is married to Dmitri Zhuravlev and they have one son, Kane, who is 19 months old. Kendra, who is married to Chris Mosman, has 3 daughters, Vanessa, 4, Milani, 3, and Ella, 10 months. After retirement, Marge plans to continue to work in the family farming operation. Marge and her family also own and operate Bottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mobile Home Park in Laramie, Wyoming, which involves spending time in her home town several times throughout the year. She hopes to even increase her involvement with that company after retirement. Curt and Marge also plan to travel and visit new places. Marge is especially excited to spend more leisure time with her children and grandchildren and looks forward to being more available to help with the care of her grandchildren as her daughters and their husbands travel with work and are starting new businesses.

The Sheffield Press Thursday, December 1, 2016 • Shef¿eld, Iowa

IT HAS BEGUN President-Elect Donald Trump is a busy guy. Too busy for things like taking the stand in a court trial for defrauding students of Trump University. Instead, the man that bragged about not settling lawsuits, settled, paying out $25 million to make the problem go away. That makes sense. Such things can be distracting. Heck, Trump even got ahead of the game by pre-emotively announcing that he wouldn’t use funds from his charitable foundation to pay the settlement. Because using charity funds to pay off his personal debts is something everybody would expect Donald Trump to do. In the end though, $25 million is a small price to pay to free him up so he can get down to business. And by business, I mean his own private business. Because while Trump is reportedly ducking out of intelligence briefings in the ramp-up to his presidency, he is spending a lot of time talking to his new peers in the World Leaders Club. Leaders of countries that Trump happens to be doing business in. And sometimes his daughter, who is running his company in the most keenly sighted “blind trust” in history, is present during these conversations. It’s OK though, because according to Trump, “The President can’t have a conflict of interest.” Which is a sentence I think most people would agree with if said in a different context. But even if he isn’t directing 100 percent of his attention towards his presidency, that’s what delegating is for. Trump can look after his business and delegate the rest to his trusty cabinet. After all, he hires the best people. People like the new White House Chief of Staff, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. I guess “draining the swamp” of Washington D.C. corruption doesn’t mean what I thought it might. For a guy that ran on a distrust of Washington insiders, his White House is going to be run by a guy who is as inside as you can get. On the other hand, even if Trump did drain the swamp, he’s still bringing in scum of his own. Steve Bannon, founding member of Breitbart News, will move from his position as Trump’s campaign manager to

AGE OF THE GEEK

Travis Fischer Counselor to the President. Under Bannon, Breitbart became Gawker for the alt-right, a haven of sensationalistic garbage journalism that would make Fox News look fair and balanced by comparison. This is the man who will have the ear of the President. It gets better though. Trump’s National Security Advisor will be Michael Flynn, a former Lt. General who was forced into early retirement and spent a good chunk of the last year trying to out-inane Trump on Twitter. According to some of Colin Powell’s leaked emails, Flynn was effectively fired because he was a pain to work with and had only a casual relationship with facts. This is the guy in charge of delivering intelligence reports to President Pence…I mean Trump. Meanwhile, the CIA is going to be directed by Representative Mike Pompeo, which is good news if you’re a fan of torturing inmates at Guantanamo Bay. For Attorney General, Trump has picked Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, a man who voted against prohibiting torture of prisoners, supports civil forfeiture, is strongly anti-immigrant, and who literally said he could not comprehend the fact that Marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol. Thankfully, rumors that Ben Carson would be named the Secretary of Education did not come to pass. To dispel such rumors, Carson, a man who ran for President of the United States, announced that he was not qualified to run a federal agency. Instead, the Secretary of Education will be Betsy DeVos, a woman who has made a political career out of advocating for charter schools over public schools. She’s all about choice, so when she slashes federal funding for public school programs, you’ll still have the choice to drive your kid to Dubuque every day as an alternative.

These are the people Tr ump thinks will make America great again. In the meantime though, he mostly just seems to be making America hate again. This month the FBI released a statistics report showing that hate crimes in general increased by 7 percent from 2014 to 2015. Getting deeper into the numbers, religiously motivated hate crimes saw a 24 percent increase, a healthy chuck of which can be attributed to the 69 percent spike in hate crimes against Muslims, reaching their highest rate since 2001. And that’s without counting the hate crimes against Sikhs, who occasionally get targeted by people not smart enough to tell the difference between them and Muslims. With hundreds of reports of harassment being monitored by the Southern Poverty Law Center in just the first week since the election, I’d say odds are better than average we’ll be seeing new records next year. Of course that’s not to say that Trump supports such actions. After all, he looked right into a “60 Minutes” camera and said “stop it.” That’s enough right? After all, it’s just hate crimes committed in his name. It’s not something serious, like getting booed at the theater, which inspired Trump to go on yet another Twitter tirade. Unless of course that was really just meant to distract attention away from the previously mentioned fraud settlement. All of this and he’s not even President yet. It hasn’t even been a month since the election. He’s still nearly two months away from being sworn in and already his administration is a cesspool of corruption and cronyism, flavored with the ever present hint of white nationalism. This weekend, after protesting the Green Party’s recount, Trump alleged that millions of illegitimate votes were cast. That sounds like a good reason to do a full audit, just to double check everything. Or even better, let’s just do the whole thing over again. Travis Fischer is a news writer for Mid-America Publishing and doesn’t expect the recount to change anything, but is crossing his fingers anyway.

“I’m in the outdoor business, and the wharf side kind of reflects that,” Bob said, “And we are very proud of our great school district and we wanted to kind of commemorate that [with the bar side].” Patrons who grew up in the area or went to some of the different schools before it was consolidated into West Fork might feel they are taking a trip down memory lane once they enter the West Fork Wharf. All the tables in the bar area are made from the original floor out of the Sheffield-Chapin gym. Along the wall is a row of benches, which also come from the gym; it is the bleachers from the Thornton gym. All the trim around the windows are out of the Thornton gym, and even the purse hooks right under the bar are the original towel hooks out of the boy’s locker room in Thornton. The walls are adorned with photos of past sports teams in Sheffield-Chapin, Meservey-Thornton, and Rockwell-Swaledale. There are basketballs from the state championships and lockers from the Thornton schools. Also on the wall is the front and sides of the “ball box” that held basketballs and has the initials of everyone who participated from 1962 to 1995. “People come and are immediately drawn to that. The schools helped us out a lot with photos,” Bob said. “Grandkids come in and see pictures of their grandparents and vice versa.” There is an incredible amount of history and remembrance when one enters West Fork Wharf. “We contacted all the schools and Meservey-Thornton and Rockwell-Swaledale for memorabilia also,” Kim said. Photos goes back to the 1930’s. “This is a museum,” Bob said. “It is unique. We are proud of Sheffield and the school district and we wanted to help keep main street alive.” The Jensen’s said it is more than just providing something for people in the area, and that they get people from all over Iowa and even the

There are large photos of their family, catching fish and spending time together. Bob is an avid fisherman and has written books on the subject, has a syndicated column on fishing and even hosts a television show on fishing called Fishing the Midwest. The building was originally a bank, and the bar on the dining side

still reflects that, and still has the old vault door as its entrance. The bar itself has special lures scattered across it under glass, which signify memories for Bob and Kim. “Our place is not fast food by any stretch, but the food is outstanding,” Bob said. What we find is people enjoy just coming and spending time together.” The restaurant seats about 80 people, and the kitchen is not that large, so it can take some time to get your food. ‘Our goal is not to provide a fast meal, but to give an outstanding experience,” Bob said.

District Court The court handled one probation violation and one case of contempt. • Andrew Krie, 25, New Hartford, pled guilty on November 21 to Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree (pled from Burglary in the Third Degree).

Pohlman was sentenced to 30 days in jail (suspended), placed on one year probation, fined $315 plus 35% surcharge, and $100 in costs. An additional charge of Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree was dismissed. • Johnny Coker, 21, Pleasant Hill, pled guilty on November 21 to Possession of a Controlled Substance First Offense.

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.

Brownie Cake Cones

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.

C

)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.

PUBLIC NOTICE Department of Homeland Security (FEMA) PUBLIC NOTICE FEMA-4281-DR-IA & FEMA-4289-DR-IA The Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse State and local governments and agencies, and eligible private non-pro¿t organizations for eligible costs incurred to repair and/ or replace facilities damaged by severe storms, straight-line winds, and Àooding occurring from August 23 to 27, 2016 and September 21 to October 3, 2016. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA) and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 USC §§ 5121-5206.as amended. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA4281-DR-IA) signed by the President on September 29, 2016, the following counties in the State of Iowa have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and are eligible for PA only: Allamakee, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Floyd, Howard, Mitchell, and Winneshiek (August 23 through August 27, 2016 incident period). All counties in the State of Iowa are eligible for HMGP. Additionally, under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-4289-DR-IA) signed by the President on October 31, 2016, the following counties in the State of Iowa have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and are eligible for PA only: Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Des Moines, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Howard, Linn, Mitchell, Winneshiek, and Wright (September 21 through October 3, 2016 incident period). All counties in the State of Iowa are eligible for HMGP. There are no counties declared for Individual Assistance on either of the two aforementioned disasters (FEMA-4281-DR-IA, FEMA-4289-DR-IA). This public notice concerns public assistance activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-Year Floodplain (areas determined to have a one percent probability of Àooding in any given year), and critical actions within the 500Year Floodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, Àoodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to Àood damage. Such activities may include restoring facilities located in a Àoodplain with eligible damage to pre-disaster condition. Examples of such activities include, but are not limited to, the following: Non-emergency debris removal and disposal; Non-emergency protective measures; Repair/replacement of roads, including streets, culverts, and bridges; Repair/replacement of public dams, reservoirs and channels; Repair/replacement of public buildings and related equipment; Repair/replacement of public water control facilities, pipes and distribution systems; Repair/replacement of public utilities, including sewage treatment plants, sewers and electrical power distribution systems; and Repair/replacement of eligible private, non-pro¿t facilities (hospitals, educational centers, emergency and custodial care services, etc.). The President’s Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management, and Executive Order 11990, Protection of Wetlands, requires that all Federal actions in or affecting the 100-Year Àoodplain or wetland areas be reviewed for opportunities to move the facility out of the Àoodplain or wetland and to reduce the risk of future damage or loss from Àooding and minimize harms to wetlands. However, FEMA has determined that, in certain situations, there are no alternatives to restoring an eligible facility located in the Àoodplain to its pre-disaster condition. These situations meet all of the following criteria: The FEMA estimated cost of repairs is less than 50 percent of the estimated cost to replace the facility and the replacement cost of the facility is less than $100,000. The facility is not located in a floodway or coastal high hazard area. The facility has not sustained structural damage in a previous presidentially declared Àood disaster or emergency. The facility is not de¿ned as critical (e.g., hospital, generating plant, contains dangerous materials, emergency operation center, etc.). FEMA will provide assistance to restore the facilities described above to their pre-disaster condition, and also when measures to mitigate

the effects of future Àooding may be incorporated into the restoration work. For example, insuf¿cient waterway openings under culverts and bridges may cause water back up to wash out the structures. The water back up could wash out the facility and could damage other facilities in the area. Increasing the size of the waterway opening would mitigate, or lessen, the potential for this damage. Additional examples of mitigation measures include providing erosion protection at bridge abutments or levees, and extending entrance tubes on sewage lift stations. Disaster assistance projects to restore facilities, which do not meet the criteria listed above, must undergo a detailed review. The review will include a study to determine if the facility can be moved out of the Àoodplain. The public is invited to participate in the review. The public may identify alternatives for restoring the facility and may participate in analyzing the impact of the alternatives on the facility and the Àoodplain. An address and phone number for obtaining information about speci¿c assistance projects is provided at the end of this Notice. The ¿nal determination regarding the restoration of these facilities in a Àoodplain will be announced in future Public Notices. Due to the urgent need for and/or use of the certain facilities in a Àoodplain, actions to restore the facility may have started before the Federal inspector visits the site. Some of these facilities may meet the criteria for a detailed review to determine if they should be relocated. Generally, facilities may be restored in their original location where at least one of the following conditions applies: The facility, such as a Àood control device or bridge, is functionally dependent on its Àoodplain location. The facilities, such as a park or other openuse space, already represent sound Àoodplain management and, therefore, there is no need to change it. The facility, such as a road or a utility, is an integral part of a larger network that could not be relocated economically. Emergency action is needed to address a threat to public health and safety. The effects of not relocating the facilities will be examined. In each case, the examination must show an overriding public need for the facility at its original location that clearly outweighed the requirements in the Executive Order to relocate the facility out of the Àoodplain. FEMA will also consult State and local of¿cials to make certain that no actions taken will violate either State or local Àoodplain protection standards. The restoration of these facilities may also incorporate certain measures designed to mitigate the effects of future Àooding. This will be the only Notice to the public concerning these facilities. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archaeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register, and FEMA’s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA’s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. FEMA also intends to provide Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding under Section 404 of the Stafford Act to the State of Iowa for the purposes of mitigating future disaster damages. Hazard mitigation projects may involve the construction of a new facility (e.g., retention pond, or debris dam), modi¿cation of an existing undamaged facility (e.g., improving waterway openings of bridges or culverts), and the relocation of facilities out of the Àoodplain. Subsequent Notices will provide more speci¿c information as project proposals are developed. Information about assistance projects may be obtained by submitting a written request to the Regional Director, DHS-FEMA Region VII; 9221 Ward Parkway, Suite 300; Kansas City, MO 64114-3372. The information may also be obtained by calling: (816) 283-7061, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Comments should be sent in writing to the Regional Director, at the above address, within 15 days of the date of publication of this notice. Published in The Shef¿eld Press on December 1, 2016

DNR seeks input from migratory game bird hunters The Iowa DNR is asking Iowa migratory game bird hunters what they liked and disliked about the 2016 migratory game bird seasons. This is the first step in developing proposed 2017 migratory game bird season dates. To provide input, please email comments to Orrin Jones, DNR waterfowl biologist, at Orrin.Jones@ dnr.iowa.gov by Dec. 1. Migratory game bird hunters will have the opportunity to provide additional comments in the early part of 2017 after season dates and bag limits have been proposed to the state’s Natural Resource Commission. The process of establishing season dates is guided by regulatory schedules established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which requires a state’s seasons to be proposed before current hunting seasons have concluded. For more information, visit the DNR’s migratory game bird webpage.

For current information, contact the Clear Lake Fish and Wildlife office at (641) 357-3517. Blue Pit Lake: There was an Urban Trout stocking at Blue Pit, in Mason City, on Wednesday, Nov. 23. Fifteen hundred Rainbow trout were stocked into the lake. Anglers need a 2016 fishing license (age 16 and older) and trout stamp to fish for or possess trout. Clear Lake: Water temperature is 37 degrees. Fishing activity has slowed with colder weather and high winds. All area lakes are ice free. Some of the smaller ponds and wetlands have formed skim ice.

It was a wild Sunday of football after the Thanksgiving holiday, culminating in the best primetime game of the year. While fans across the country might have still been digesting turkey and stuffing, the Bears’ receivers were busy ruining the first ever start by Matt Barkley. Although he threw two interceptions, the former USC quarterback attempted 54 passes, completing 28 for 316 yards and three touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans. Yet he would need four touchdowns to win the game, and the Bears’ wide-outs just wouldn’t give it to him. Twice on the final drive two different Bears receivers dropped Barkley’s touchdown passes in the endzone. Its not too surprising though, as they had been dropping passes all day. With Jay Cutler likely done in the Windy City, and the Bears 2-9, look for them to upgrade the quarterback position in the offseason, and maybe their coaching staff as well. The best Sunday Night Football game of the year was also the most devastating—for Broncos fans. For much of the night it looked like a good old-fashioned defensive battle between two powerhouses with the score at halftime 9-3 with Kansas City leading because of a safety and a free kick touchdown return by rookie speedster Tyreek Hill. Somehow the offenses exploded for a combined 45 points in the second half. It was the Miller and Houston show for much of the game, with both outside linebackers wreaking havoc and wrecking plays in route to a combined 20 tackles and six sacks. There were incredible plays of speed and agility by Hill, huge pass plays of 35, 65 and 76 yards, and after Fowler streaked down the sideline to put Denver up 8 with about three minutes left. I, along with all of Broncos Country, assumed the game was over. No way could Alex Smith move the ball down the field against Denver’s defense and score a touchdown and two-point conversion. I also sat in disbelief when it happened. Then both fan bases faced the prospect of a tie, with Denver attempting a 62-yard field goal with a minute left. A lot of pundits are saying Broncos’ coach Gary Kubiak shouldn’t have kicked it, he said he was going for a win, not a tie. I respect that, but he should have just gone for it on fourth down, yet it is easy to Monday morning quarterback. As Cairo Santos’ kick bounced off the uprights and in, I felt the division title slipping away, and if the playoffs started today, the defending champs would not be involved. Luckily, they don’t. The Cowboys have now won 10 in a row after beating the red hot Redskins on Thanksgiving. At this point I would say the Cowboys, with their dynamic rookie tandem are the favorites to win the Super Bowl in Houston this year, but its not even close to a guarantee, and that’s why they play the game.
