Ida County supervisors approve road budget, bond maers Several secondary road matters were discussed by Ida County supervisors April 9. Regarding the Fiscal Year 2018-19 budget, the secondary road department budget was approved to be iled with the Iowa Department of Transportation. The beginning fund balance is $1,764,000 for re-estimated FY 2017-18; total receipts are $6,175,751 and administration-engineering costs are $1,076,000. Expenses are expected to total $4,876,000, leaving a balance of $1,299,551. Secondary Road Engineer Jeff Williams explained the Tax Increment Finance (TIF) Urban Renewal Bond-funded projects are handled separately. “There have been some changes in the fed-
erally-funded projects. The state will handle it, because they have more staff plus that will cut down on the red-tape. It will be cheaper to manage projects. We will still have to do things like a report for endangered species,” said Williams. The supervisors took action on the loan agreement for the $9 million in general obligation county urban renewal bonds, providing for the levy of taxes and also adopted policies and prodedures regarding municipal securities disclosure. Bankers Trust Company of Des Moines was designated as the registrar and paying agent for the bonds. (continued on page 2)

Galva-Holstein and SchallerCrestland School Boards established a dead week during July for student athletes during a joint meeting in Schaller April 9. Superintendent Jon Wiebers noted during the dead week school facilities will be closed and coaches are to have no contact at all with athletes. This includes no weight lifting, open gyms, camps, workouts or drills. Wiebers said the purpose of the dead week is to give student athletes a break and allow parents to plan vacations. It will also allow coaches time to spend with their families. In the future the school will use the dead week to reinish gym loors. The dead week this summer will be Sunday, July 22 through Saturday, July 28. The week following the dead week will allow coaches time to have camps before the start of volleyball and football practices begin. Wiebers said the only conlict that may occur is if the
Ridge View baseball team would qualify for the state baseball tournament. If that were to occur, the baseball players would be allowed to practice and participate in the state tournament. The boards agreed to establish the dead week period beginning this summer. The boards briely discussed if there is a need to have any more work sessions to discuss possible changes in the whole grade sharing agreement and what that would mean in terms of building utilization and costs. The boards have conducted several joint work sessions in recent weeks to discuss possibly moving the middle school to Schaller and including the ifth grade in the whole grade sharing agreement. The S-C board noted they would have to ind out what it will take to get the Schaller building upgraded, including getting the boiler in the building ixed permanently, before moving forward with a plan to move the middle school to Schaller.
The boards agreed additional work sessions might be needed. No additional work sessions have been scheduled. Prior to the joint meeting April 9, both boards held separate public hearings on their proposed budgets for the next iscal year. The budgets were approved as published by the respective boards. Galva-Holstein’s proposed budget has total revenues of $7,512,609, which is up from the reestimated current iscal year total of $7,399,325. The beginning fund balance is $3,476,748, which gives the district $10,989,357 in total resources, which is up from total resources of $10,641,675 listed in the current iscal budget. Total expenditures and other uses for 2018-19 are listed at $7,623,251, which compares to the current budget total of $7,164,927. The 2018-19 tax levy is $12.18 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, which is up from the current level of $12.01. (continued on page 2)

O-A/BC-IG boards approve project bids The O-A and BC-IG School Boards approved bids for a ire alarm system and an HVAC project April 9 during their joint meeting in Ida Grove. O-A approved a $68,225 bid from Feld Security to replace the ire alarm system at the middle school in Odebolt. BC-IG approved the bid from Drees Plumbing and Heating in Carroll to replace the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system at the high school building in Ida Grove for $460,000 (prime construction) and $25,981 for base bid two (temperature controls) for total cost of $485,981. Superintendent Terry Kenealy reported the bids were 21 percent higher than the engineer’s estimate, which could be attributed to it being a small project, that only two general contractors submitted bids and the timing of the project. He reported the engineer found the ductwork was bid twice in the bid from Drees. Once approved, Drees will come back with a change order deducting $12,000 from the original bid. CW Suter and Son of Sioux City submitted
a prime construction bid of $467,000. Other temperature control bids were from Interstate Mechanical Corporation of Sioux City ($27,295) and Star Controls of Sioux City ($30,272).

RV play: Ridge View drama students will present their spring play this weekend, April 20-21 at the Rosemary Clausen Center for Performing Arts in Holstein. Rehearsing for the performance are, front from left, Kyra Martin as Anytime/Christine and Jill Galvin as Elizabeth. Back row: Jack Henderson as Montgomery and Cameron Steffen as the chief of police.
RV to present ‘Whodunit… and to Whom’ this weekend Looking for the “Whodunit” to end all “Whodunits?” Then look no further. The Ridge View drama department’s presentation of the play “Whodunit……..And to Whom?” is Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21, at 7 p.m. for both performances. This play within a play will be sure to provide an evening of enjoyment. If you’re a carpet salesman, a paint salesman, a writer, a criminal mastermind or even if you aren’t; it will be a show that you will forget. This spoof of the classic “gumshoe story” has more twists than a loop of licorice. Henpecked paint salesman Harold Finnegan is trying to pound out his umpteenth thirdrate detective story on his typewriter. As he writes, the audience sees the actions played out by actors on stage. And as he corrects his writing, the actors are forced to revise their actions. Finnegan’s story introduces the
audience to the Russian painter nicknamed Anytime, and hero, Detective Grip. As the Russian spins her tale, she faints and when the “pizza guy” shows up, he believes that Grip has killed her, though he does pause long enough to accept a generous tip. From there, the tale really goes wild — from policeman wielding rubberbands (Finnegan doesn’t like violence in his plays) to Sheila Crylinski (a villain modeled after Finnegan’s arch-enemy at work) to Grip’s vengeful daughter, the electronic genius Bitsy. Strange characters keep cropping up...characters with the power to stop the play and freeze the other characters. Who really is writing this play anyway? Is it Finnegan? Or has he lost control of his own thoughts? And who are Elizabeth and Montgomery, who seem to have devilish plans for writing Finnegan himself out of the script?
Battle Creek council handles light agenda The Battle Creek City Council handled a light agenda April 10. Tim Burrow presented the inancials for March and reported the ambulance has two new members.

Dave Neeley has accepted a position with the Creston district while Withhart said he is going to pursue “other avenues.” The Ida Grove swimming pool committee selected an engineer and design alternates for pool improvements Thursday. The Ida Grove City Council approved the recommendations Monday. The goal is to renovate the current pool, enlarge the baby pool and add more sun deck area. Twenty years ago Law enforcement oficials continued their investigation into the disappearance of Ida Grove resident Connie Ruddy with two searches. The searches included a drive Sunday at gravel pits at Eden Prairie Restoration Area east of Schaller and a ground search at a farm near Battle Creek on Monday. Janette Bohlke and Leone
Godbersen were recognized for their contributions to the Ida Grove Public Library open house Sunday. The open house commemorated the 20th anniversary of the current library building dedication. Bohlke was recognized as an active volunteer and member of the Friends of the Library. Godbersen was recognized for the generous inancial support of the library through the Harold and Leone Godbersen Family Foundation. A recent report on county population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau shows Ida County’s population has dropped an estimated 430 people or 5.1 percent from 1990 to 1997, placing it sixth among Iowa counties losing the most residents. Ida County’s population estimate in 1997 was 7,935. The 1990 census listed the county’s population at 8,365. Ten years ago The Ida Grove City Council pledged $100,000 over the next three years to proposed changes at the Ida Grove swimming pool. The slide committee has chosen a combination water slide and double tubes for the northwest corner of the pool and a small frog slide for the baby pool. The pool committee is hoping to break ground on the improvements at the end of the 2009 pool season. The Galva City Council approved selling lots in South View Addition for $1 each in Phase I or II through Dec. 31, 2008. A house must be built on the lot within one year of purchasing the lot. Odebolt Mayor Ron Rex met with a location manager for the movie “Peacock,” which will be shot in Iowa this spring. Filming in and around Odebolt will be held May 6-9.

Singers help singers The Ridge View High School Music Boosters were the recipients of a $300 donation from the Happiness Express Chorus of Denison April 10. Dennis Cook of Schaller, a member of the Happiness Express Chorus, made the presentation to Kris Kistenmacher and her vocal music class. The donation is part of the chorus’s program of “Enriching Lives Through Singing.” The donation represents a portion of the $2,700 the singers plan to donate to area vocal music programs this year. “It costs money to run school music programs,” said John Haselhoff, a member of the chorus from Schaller. “The chorus has stepped in to help. Our show patrons and our business sponsors have been very supportive in the past years, so we are returning a portion of our past spring show receipts to the communities in which our members
live.” Area business sponsors helping to make this possible in the past include: Rod’s Fertilizer, Galva; Schaller Telephone Company, State Bank Agency, DC Specialties and Remington Seeds, all of Schaller; Kevin L. Murray, P.C. of Sac City; Hy-Vee Food Store, Storm Lake Pizza Ranch, Edwards Chevrolet Buick GMC, Security Savings Bank, The Citizen First National Bank and Fareway Stores, all of Storm Lake. The Happiness Express is the performing a cappella chorus of the Denison Barbershop Harmony Society. Members come from a 60-mile radius of Denison. Now in its 54th year, the chorus welcomes all men, high school age and up who enjoy singing as a hobby. They meet each Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Denison High School vocal music room, 819 North 16th St. For more information, Google search for “Happiness Express Chorus.”

Schultz from the Senate by: IA State Senator Jason Schultz (R) District 9
The Iowa Legislature took a strong position on illegal immigration this week. Senate File 481, the Sanctuary City bill, applies a penalty to cities and counties that refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when a detainer request is submitted to a local law enforcement agency holding a suspected illegal alien. This bill was passed in the Senate last session, was amended and passed on April 3 in the House, and then the Senate agreed to the House changes on April 4. Specifically, SF 481 requires an Iowa law enforcement agency having custody of a person subject to an immigration detainer request to fully comply with any instruction and legal document provided by a federal agency, requires actions by the court in relation to a defendant who is the subject of an immigration detainer request at the time of sentencing, prohibits a local entity from taking any action discouraging the enforcement of immigration laws, including adopting or enforcing a policy, requires each state or local law enforcement agency to have policies in writing related to enforcement of federal immigration laws by Jan. 1, 2019, and prohibits discrimination while enforcing immigration laws except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution
of the State of Iowa. But, the debate is broader than what is found in the bill. The bill, soon to be signed by the governor, only applies to a person who has already been arrested for committing a separate crime. This is not a bill forcing local law enforcement to work federal immigration law. It simply requires law enforcement with a criminal suspect in custody cooperate with federal immigration enforcement if they think the suspect may be in the country illegally and may have reason to be deported. Why wouldn’t law enforcement want to deport the criminal element in their hometowns? Most law enforcement agree and cooperate willingly, if not enthusiastically. But, even here in Iowa, we have elements of the progressive movement who want to re-engineer Iowans into citizens of the world. This movement wants no borders, no celebration of American exceptionalism and a desire to reduce Iowa and the U.S.A. to the world average. The Senate Democrats voted unanimously to allow politically-motivated communities to release criminals who are suspected of being in the country illegally back into our communities. We are Iowans and citizens of the United States of America. Our forefathers, legal immigrants themselves, built a city on top of a hill for the world to aspire or to legally enter and become an American themselves. While we can welcome those who legally enter and become part of the great American culture, we should never ac-
cept officials who turn their head and refuse to protect the lives, families and property of citizens and legal immigrants. This policy didn’t work for the Sarah Root family of Council Bluffs. Sarah was killed by a 19-year-old illegal alien who was racing down an Omaha street with a blood alcohol content of .241, three times the legal limit. He was released after a relative paid $5,000 bond, and he hasn’t been seen since. It didn’t work for the family of Kate Steinle of San Francisco. She was shot by an illegal alien who had been previously deported five times. But, it gets worse. Several weeks before Steinle was killed, Garcia Zarate was released from a San Francisco jail—despite a federal request to detain him for a sixth deportation. The primary purpose of government is to protect and preserve the rights of the people. It is our moral duty to protect the rights of the citizen. Not to protect the criminal who is in this country illegally and then continues to break our laws and hurt Iowans. If you need to contact me, please email jason.schultz@ legis.iowa.gov.

Get your daily fiber fix Quick. When was the last time you added up how many grams of fiber you get in your daily diet? Everyone is talking about carbohydrates and fats and sugars, but who thinks about fiber? Fiber has all kinds of health benefits to men, women, teenagers and children. It lowers your cholesterol, prevents heart disease, it keeps your blood sugar stable and can help lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Not enough? It also lowers the risk for certain types of cancers and promotes healthier gut bacteria. No one wants to talk about this taboo subject, but constipation is the number one gastrointestinal complaint in the United States and fi-
ber can reduce that. What’s more, fiber helps fill you up faster at mealtime and keeps you satisfied longer which can help individuals lose weight and keep it off. It is recommended that women get 25 grams of fiber a day and men be in the 38 gram per day range. Most Americans only get about 15 grams of fiber in a day, so we have work to do. Here are some fiber-rich foods to incorporate into your diet slowly: Fruits: Apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and mangos. Vegetables: Broccoli, kale, spinach, asparagus, carrots, beets, beans, peas, collard greens and artichokes, avocados and sweet potatoes. Whole grain breads, wheat pasta, nuts and seeds, popcorn, oatmeal and quinoa. Water, fiber fortified orange juice and yogurts. Fiber is something the body needs but never actually digests. For the next 30 days, try to increase your fiber intake and see if you feel better.

BC Womenâ€™s Club learns about clowns The Battle Creek Womenâ€™s Club met April 12 in Phyllis Grothâ€™s home. The program was presented by Robin Thornhill and her other self, â€œBinkyâ€? the clown from the Horn Aux-silliary clown group. The clown troupe began in the 1980s with a suggestion from Barb Pfaltzgraff, then president of Horn Auxiliary. Thornhill formed the group about 20 years ago and found it to be a blessing in her life. The Shriner clown â€˜Chucklesâ€™ helped the clowns get started. They began using white faces, but evolved to the agusteâ€™ style of clown face, which is more natural. The caring clowns performed at area nursing homes and in the hospital, also for area organizations, birthday parties, church, school and community activities. Even though the clown group has become inactive in recent years, Thornhill still tries to spread the joy with her other self. The meeting was called to order by president Dixie Brueck. Fourteen members and one guest, Deb Uhl, answered roll call, â€˜What I like about a circus.â€™ The flowers of the month, daisy and sweet pea, were reviewed and some circus jokes and riddles gave members some laughs. The pledge of allegiance and the club collect were recited in unison. The minutes of the March meeting were read by Secretary Sharon For-
Robin Thornhill â€“ â€œBinkyâ€? thum and approved. The treasurerâ€™s report was not available. In old business, a thank you was extended to members Donna Groth, Phyllis Groth, Cindy Peters, Betty Petersen, Shirley Morrice, Lois Jensen, Dixie Brueck and Linda Wingert for helping fill 300 plastic eggs and about 100 small bags on Friday, March 30.

Community, Availa banks enter into merger agreement During the annual shareholders’ meeting on April 10, the shareholders of Nevada Community Bancshares, Inc. (NCB) approved the merger of NCB, with and into Carroll County Bancshares, Inc. (CCB), its parent company. Merging the holding companies is the irst step to merging Community Bank, NCB’s wholly-owned subsidiary, into Availa Bank, CCB’s wholly-owned subsidiary. Merging the companies will streamline the corporate structure, improve eficiency, reduce costs and provide new services to Community Bank customers, according to bank oficials. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close in the fourth quarter 2018. Community Bank President and CEO Bob Butcher stated, “Since its inception on Sept. 3, 1996, when Dan Engler and his team opened the doors of Community Bank for the irst time, Carroll Co. Bancshares Inc. has been a committed owner and inancial partner of our organization. Over the years, the bank has done very well in serving the needs of the Nevada and Holstein communities.” Butcher stated members of both banks will work together to make the merger process and transition as seamless as possible for its customers. The name will change to Availa Bank, but the same employees will be here to serve the public. The merger will also provide additional products and services, such as mobile banking and business banking, to Community Bank customers. Availa Bank President and CEO Jeff Scharfenkamp stated, “Community Bank has been an afiliate of Availa Bank since its inception, so both organizations know each other well. Availa Bank operates in other agricultural-based communities very similar to Holstein and Ne-
vada and understands the importance of local decision making and support for the communities we serve. “The merger will result in improved eficiency of our internal operations by combining two separate bank charters into one charter, allowing our staff to spend more time with our customers,” he said. Availa Bank’s roots date back to 1870, when it was originally chartered. Last year, the bank adopted the
Availa name to unify its branch locations under one name. Availa is the irst three syllables of the word available, a word that deines the bank’s mission—to always be available to customers, communities and employees with competitive products and responsive service. Scharfenkamp will be the president and CEO of the merged bank, and Butcher will oversee the former Community Bank locations as market president.

March brought 2.5 inches of rain to Iowa, the third month in a row of wetter than normal conditions. Despite this moisture, an area of persistent dryness remains in southern and southeast Iowa. “The state is entering into the normally wetter months, so hopefully we will see improvement in the driest parts of the state, while avoiding any extensive spring flooding,” said Tim Hall, Hydrology Resources Coordinator for the Iowa DNR. This March was wetter than normal, with some areas getting more than 150 percent of normal rainfall. Temperatures across Iowa were generally cooler than normal, especially in eastern and southeastern Iowa, where temperatures were, on average, four to five degrees cooler than normal. These cooler temperatures have slowed vegetative growth, helping to maintain soil moisture levels for the

Michael “Mike” Knop April 21, 1958 – April 11, 2018 ARTHUR – Services for Michael C. Knop, 59, of Arthur were April 15, 2018, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ida Grove. The Rev. Richard A. Salcido officiated. Burial services will be at a later date in the Ida Grove Cemetery in Ida Grove. Christensen-Van Houten Funeral Home in Ida Grove was in charge of arrangements. He died April 11, 2018, at his Arthur home. Michael “Mike” Craig Knop, son of Herb and Beatrice “Trixie” (O’Donnell) Knop, was born April 21, 1958, in Denison. He grew up on a farm near Woodbine and graduated from Woodbine High School in 1976. After high school, he attended Scott Community College in Davenport and received his certification in solar technology. In 1979, Mike relocated to Ida Grove and met the love of his life, Susan Kay Petersen. They married June 28, 1980, in Moorehead Park. They were blessed with a daughter, Nicole. The family moved to Tulsa, Okla., in 1981, where Mike was employed as a heavy machinery operator. There, the couple welcomed their son, Nathan. In 1987, they returned back to the Ida Grove area and made their forever home in Arthur. While
living in Arthur, the family welcomed three sons: Austin, Aidan and Mason. Mike will always be remembered as a devoted husband, father, brother and uncle. He relished taking trips on his motorcycle with his wife to Sturgis and Yellowstone, as well as spending time with his family camping. A hard worker and a jack-of-all-trades, Mike enjoyed tinkering, as well as spending time customizing his Harley. One of his proudest achievements was designing and remodeling their family home. He also appreciated collecting 1:16 scale model cars and all types of eagles. Left to cherish his memory include his wife, Susan Knop of Arthur; and his children: Nicole Knop (special friend, Brent Wessel) of Ida Grove; Nathan Knop (fiancée Crystal Thomsen) of Wichita, Kan.; and Austin, Aidan and Mason Knop of Arthur. Also surviving are his brother, Gary Knop of Wisconsin; his sisters: Patricia McDaniel (special friend, Steven McDaniel) of Ida Grove, Jacquie (Randy) Struck of Schleswig, Linda Knop (special friend, Tina Naid) of St. Petersburg, Fla., and Tracey (DJ) Newman of Odebolt; numerous nieces and nephews; extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Herb and Trixie Knop. Condolences may be sent online at www. christensenvanhouten.com.
Jesus and Elvis Presley by: Deacon Derick Cranston Pastoral Associate St. Mary Parish-Riverside Holy Trinity Parish- Richmond St. Joseph Parish-Wellman
(Deacon Derick Cranston, formerly of Odebolt, is pastoral associate for St. Mary Parish in Riverside, Holy Trinity Parish in Richmond and St. Joseph Parish in Wellman. He can be reached at derickcranston@ gmail.com.) This article, the second in a series of articles regarding the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, is reprinted with permission of The Catholic Messenger, newspaper of the Diocese of Davenport. In the previous article, we highlighted three methods used to help us determine if a claim is valid or not: the scientiic method, the historical method and the forensic method. The scientiic method depends on experiments that are reproducible and have the same results. Obviously, we
cannot go back and crucify Christ over-and-over again to see if he is raised each time. In the historical method, the most reliable evidence is examined to determine the authenticity of an historic event. Documentation has much more weight if it is made by witnesses closest to the event in question. Most historians agree - for reasons too numerous to go into detail here - that there was a man named Jesus who was cruciied 2,000 years ago on a hill outside of Jerusalem. Some claim, however, that Jesus was not divine and try to explain it away in one of three theories: the Mythic Theory, the Conspiracy Theory and the Hallucination Theory. The Mythic Theory claims sightings of Jesus were unreliable and embellished over time. Some historians point to the many “sightings” of Elvis after he died, as an example. However, there are some dificulties with this analogy.
Note that no family or friends of Elvis ever claimed to see him. All the sightings of Elvis were made by people who had never met him in person and who had convinced themselves Elvis was still alive. They expected to see him if they just looked hard enough. In addition, the sightings were leeting, lasting only a few seconds. We know from scripture that the disciples never expected to see Jesus. For example, two disciples had a long and extended conversation with Jesus before it dawned on them that this was Jesus in the lesh. Thomas, even though he saw Jesus with his own eyes, doubted it was really Jesus until he touched the wounds in his side and on his hands. In addition, Jesus spent 40 days with the disciples, eating, conversing and even making them breakfast. These were not leeting glances by people who had never met Jesus in person.

He enjoyed hunting and horseshoes and was a collector
of guns, comic books, baseball cards and antique pop bottles. You could hear him playing his trombone in community bands.

Any notice of redemption may contain a statement that the redemption is conditioned upon the receipt by the Paying Agent of funds on or before the date ﬁxed for redemption sufﬁcient to pay the redemption price of the Bonds called for redemption, and that if funds are not available, such redemption shall be cancelled by written notice to the owners of the Bonds called for redemption in the same manner as the original redemption notice was sent. All of such Bonds as to which the County reserves and exercises the right of redemption and as to which notice as aforesaid shall have been given and for the redemption of which funds are duly provided, shall cease to bear interest on the redemption date. Accrued interest on the Bonds shall be payable semiannually on the ﬁrst day of June and December in each year, commencing December 1, 2018. Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months. Payment of interest on the Bonds shall be made to the registered owners appearing on the registration books of the County at the close of business on the ﬁfteenth day of the month next preceding the interest payment date and shall be paid to the registered owners at the addresses shown on such registration books. Principal of the Bonds shall be payable in lawful money of the United States of America to the registered owners or their legal representatives upon presentation and surrender of the Bond or Bonds at the ofﬁce of the Paying Agent. The Bonds shall be executed on behalf of the County with the ofﬁcial manual or facsimile signature of the Chairperson and attested with the ofﬁcial manual or facsimile signature of the County Auditor, and shall be fully registered Bonds without interest coupons. In case any ofﬁcer whose signature or the facsimile of whose signature appears on the Bonds shall cease to be such ofﬁcer before the delivery of the Bonds, such signature or such facsimile signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufﬁcient for all purposes, the same as if such ofﬁcer had remained in ofﬁce until delivery. The Bonds shall be fully registered as to principal and interest in the names of the owners on the registration books of the County kept by the Registrar, and after such registration payment of the principal thereof and interest thereon shall be made only to the registered owners or their legal representatives or assigns. Each Bond shall be transferable only upon the registration books of the County upon presentation to the Registrar, together with either a written instrument of transfer satisfactory to the Registrar or the assignment form thereon completed and duly executed by the registered owner or the duly authorized attorney for such registered owner. The record and identity of the owners of the Bonds shall be kept conﬁdential as provided by Section 22.7 of the Code of Iowa. The Bonds shall not be valid or become obligatory for any purpose until the Certiﬁcate of Authentication thereon shall have been signed by the Registrar. Section 4. Notwithstanding anything above to the contrary, the Bonds shall be issued initially as Depository Bonds, with one fully registered Bond for each maturity date, in principal amounts equal to the amount of principal maturing on each such date, and registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee for The Depository Trust Company, New York, New York (“DTC”). On original issue, the Bonds shall be deposited with DTC for the purpose of maintaining a bookentry system for recording the ownership interests of its participants and the transfer of those interests among its participants (the “Participants”). In the event that DTC determines not to continue to act as securities deposi-
tory for the Bonds or the County determines not to continue the bookentry system for recording ownership interests in the Bonds with DTC, the County will discontinue the bookentry system with DTC. If the County does not select another qualiﬁed securities depository to replace DTC (or a successor depository) in order to continue a bookentry system, the County will register and deliver replacement bonds in the form of fully registered certiﬁcates, in authorized denominations of $5,000 or integral multiples of $5,000, in accordance with instructions from Cede & Co., as nominee for DTC. In the event that the County identiﬁes a qualiﬁed securities depository to replace DTC, the County will register and deliver replacement bonds, fully registered in the name of such depository, or its nominee, in the denominations as set forth above, as reduced from time to time prior to maturity in connection with redemptions or retirements by call or payment, and in such event, such depository will then maintain the bookentry system for recording ownership interests in the Bonds. Ownership interests in the Bonds may be purchased by or through Participants. Such Participants and the persons for whom they acquire interests in the Bonds as nominees will not receive certiﬁcated Bonds, but each such Participant will receive a credit balance in the records of DTC in the amount of such Participant’s interest in the Bonds, which will be conﬁrmed in accordance with DTC’s standard procedures. Each such person for which a Participant has an interest in the Bonds, as nominee, may desire to make arrangements with such Participant to have all notices of redemption or other communications of the County to DTC, which may affect such person, forwarded in writing by such Participant and to have notiﬁcation made of all interest payments. The County will have no responsibility or obligation to such Participants or the persons for whom they act as nominees with respect to payment to or providing of notice for such Participants or the persons for whom they act as nominees. As used herein, the term “Beneﬁcial Owner” shall hereinafter be deemed to include the person for whom the Participant acquires an interest in the Bonds. DTC will receive payments from the County, to be remitted by DTC to the Participants for subsequent disbursement to the Beneﬁcial Owners. The ownership interest of each Beneﬁcial Owner in the Bonds will be recorded on the records of the Participants whose ownership interest will be recorded on a computerized bookentry system kept by DTC. When reference is made to any action which is required or permitted to be taken by the Beneﬁcial Owners, such reference shall only relate to those permitted to act (by statute, regulation or otherwise) on behalf of such Beneﬁcial Owners for such purposes. When notices are given, they shall be sent by the County to DTC, and DTC shall forward (or cause to be forwarded) the notices to the Participants so that the Participants can forward the same to the Beneﬁcial Owners. Beneﬁcial Owners will receive written conﬁrmations of their purchases from the Participants acting on behalf of the Beneﬁcial Owners detailing the terms of the Bonds acquired. Transfers of ownership interests in the Bonds will be accomplished by book entries made by DTC and the Participants who act on behalf of the Beneﬁcial Owners. Beneﬁcial Owners will not receive certiﬁcates representing their ownership interest in the Bonds, except as speciﬁcally provided herein. Interest and principal will be paid when due by the County to DTC, then paid by DTC to the Participants and thereafter paid by the Participants to the Beneﬁcial Owners. Section 5.
