Collision near Rockwell kills Hampton woman BY ZACH CLEMENS On the evening of Friday, November 25, just north of Rockwell on U.S. Highway 65, there was a three-vehicle collision that left a Hampton woman deceased at the scene, according to a press release from the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office. A 2005 Chevrolet K3500 pickup, driven by 59-year-old Paul Wood of

Manly, was traveling north on Partridge Ave when it crossed the centerline and struck a southbound 2005 Chevy Impala driven by Hampton resident Griselda Tello, 22. Paramedics pronounced Tello dead at the scene. Wood was transported to Mercy Medical Center North Iowa with minor injuries. A third vehicle, driven by 58-year-

old Sheffield resident Jacqueline Sickels, was also traveling south on Partridge when her 2001 Daewoo Lanos struck debris in the road that caused her vehicle to spin out of control. Sickels was taken to Mercy by private transportation for treatment. The collision remains under investigation by the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa State Patrol.

BY ZACH CLEMENS The Meservey Public Library has been hard at work serving the community, with new programs and plans for more this holiday season. Library Director Chelsea Price said there is a new exercise program each week at the library on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 6:30 p.m. It is held in the back of the library and each week is a different light to

moderate exercise video that participants will watch and follow. It just started in October with a small turnout. T he prog ram will continue throughout the next few months to see if it gains more interest after the holidays. If you want to get in shape after that Thanksgiving feast, go put in work at the Meservey library.

On Thursday, December 8 at 6 p.m. there will be a “Wrap and Yap Party” at the library. You can come and enjoy some coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, music and good conversation. Bring any presents that you need wrapped, as wrapping paper will be provided.

New Swaledale Library director brings positive changes Meservey Public Library plans for the holidays

▪ New programs, hours and a mascot

BY ZACH CLEMENS The Swaledale Public Library has a new director that has brought some positive changes, new programs and a new library mascot. The new director, Kelli Lange, 20, is from the Nora Springs area, going to NIACC and working at the For-

est City and Thornton Public Library before coming to Swaledale. “I hope to bring a lot more people into the library,” Lange said. “Find out what the community likes and do activities they will participate in.” One such activity is a new program started by Lange called “Crafternoon” which is a chance for kids to make different crafts from 3 to 6 p.m.

NIACC Named to Victory Media’s 2017 Military Friendly Schools List North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) has announced that it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM JobsSM , and Military Spouse. First published in 2009, Military Friendly Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career. Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,700 schools participated in

the 2017 survey; 1,273 were awarded with the designation. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans. “NIACC is honored to receive this designation for the eighth year in a row,” said Michelle Petznick, VA Certifying Official and Registrar at NIACC. “This designation is

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. It’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, it’s time to put politics aside and put the needs of Iowans at the top of our minds. 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. We’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 state’s budget by living within our means and making investments in the priority needs of Iowans in a responsible way. I’m also looking forward to working with the Senate’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 won’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. I’m excited for what’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. You can reach me at linda.upmeyer@legis. iowa.gov or (515) 281-3521.

on Tuesdays. All ages are welcome and kids can come and do just one craft or multiple. The library will also have an author come for a visit on December 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. Sherrie Hansen is the author of adult fiction books such as “Wild Rose,” “Blue Belle” and “Shy Violet” and owns the Blue Belle Inn in St. Ansgar, Iowa where she resides. She will give a talk, sign books and bring treats for everyone to try. Lange has expanded the hours of the library, and be more active on social media, which has helped with visits to their website, Lange said. “Everyone has been really great so far,” She said. There is a new fee policy for the library, when there wasn’t one before Lange came on board. “The library was losing a lot of materials and since we’ve instituted the fee policy we have gotten a lot of stuff back,” Lange said. “And it’s not expensive either.” There is a new mascot for the Swaledale Public Library, it is Cedar the Reader, Lange’s dog, who will in the future be at outdoor events, and hopefully will have a program learning about dogs. The library received a Foster and Evelyn Barkema grant for $7500 that will be used for new furniture and materials in the children’s section, as well as getting new carpet that has seen better days. Stop in to the Swaledale Public Library and check out the changes and greet the new director, and just maybe Cedar the Reader will greet you.

Wild weekend 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 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 rookie by 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 twopoint 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.

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 okay 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% 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 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 e-mails, 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 antiimmigrant, 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 Trump 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 Minutesâ€? camera and said “stop it.â€? 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.

PIGSKIN PONDERING:: Zach Clemens 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 4th 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 is 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.

AGE OF THE GEEK

Travis Fischer 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.

Windmills make us poor 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 we’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 Earth’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 Earth’s surface) such as power plants and cars can drastically change the climate. In the early 1980’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 world’s top climate scientists, 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 lifestyles would change if we were doing “enough.� 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

THE ALTERNATIVE

Fritz Groszkruger 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 can’t imagine self-described constitutional conservative, Representative Steve King, and the taxpayers’ 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.

ATTEST Chairman Casey Callanan Board of Supervisors Kenneth W. Kline, County Auditor Cerro Gordo County Published in The Pioneer Enterprise on December 1, 2016

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-profit organizations for eligible costs incurred to repair and/ or replace facilities damaged by severe storms, straight-line winds, and flooding 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 flooding in any given year), and critical actions within the 500Year Floodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to flood damage. Such activities may include restoring facilities located in a floodplain 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, nonprofit 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 floodplain or wetland areas be reviewed for opportunities to move the facility out of the floodplain or wetland and to reduce the risk of future damage or loss from flooding 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 floodplain 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 flood disaster or emergency. The facility is not defined 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 flooding may be incorpo-

rated into the restoration work. For example, insufficient 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 floodplain. 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 floodplain. An address and phone number for obtaining information about specific assistance projects is provided at the end of this Notice. The final determination regarding the restoration of these facilities in a floodplain will be announced in future Public Notices. Due to the urgent need for and/or use of the certain facilities in a floodplain, 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 flood control device or bridge, is functionally dependent on its floodplain location. The facilities, such as a park or other openuse space, already represent sound floodplain 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 floodplain. FEMA will also consult State and local officials to make certain that no actions taken will violate either State or local floodplain protection standards. The restoration of these facilities may also incorporate certain measures designed to mitigate the effects of future flooding. 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.

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

'".*-:'&"563&4

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.
