H-D school board election has one contested seat; Hansen vs. Rosenberg By Jeff Forward The Hampton-Dumont Community School District will have its election for three open board of director seats on Sept. 10. Two of the three seats are not contested – those of Thomas Brolsma and Chad Hanson. The third seat – that of the Hampton-Dumont director currently held by Jennifer Hansen – is being contested. H a n sen is being challenged by local resident Jeff Rosenberg. Chad Hanson – who has been on the board for four years – is seeking his second term. One of the reasons he became involved in the school board, Hanson said, was the fact he has four children currently attending district schools. He also cited his pride in the district and being a Hampton-Dumont graduate. “I just have a lot of pride in the school and in the community,â€? Chad Hanson said. “I look at it as a way to give back and contribute to the community. I feel like it treated me well, so I want to help out as much as I can.â€? Also running uncontested is Brolsma, who has been on the school board four years. Brolsma moved to the Hampton area 10 years ago from southwest Minnesota. He said he attended many school board meetings before deciding WRVHHNRIÂżFH “I had attended many meetings before I ran. I found it interesting,â€? Brolsma said. “It’s been a fantastic learning expeULHQFH P\ ÂżUVW IRXU \HDUV DQG I’m looking forward to the next four years.â€? Brolsma said there aren’t any “burning issuesâ€? facing the district but added he is proud of WKHGLVWULFWÂśVÂżQDQFLDOUHVSRQVLbility record and he has goals to improve student test scores. The only contested race in this year’s election involves Jennifer Hansen and Rosenberg. Rosenberg, a native of Wisconsin who moved to Hampton seven years ago, said he is running in part because he has two childen in the district now and would like to see some additional programs developed. “I have two children in the system now,â€? Rosenberg said. “I’d also like to give back. It’s just something I wanted to do to give back.â€? Some of the changes Rosenberg would like to see include developing a foreign language program for younger students, develop more after school activities and to improve trade skills training for those who may not opt for college. Hansen was unable to be reached for comment despite repeated attempts.

“I used to have one. Mine had the 302 in it,â€? Marshall said, referring to his engine. “I wish I’d have never sold it.â€?

One car that drew lots of gawkers ZDVD)RUG&RQYHUWLEOHRZQHG by Larry Spear of Hampton.

Hall, a member of the River City Street Rods club, said members from the club come to the Hampton show because it is known as a good car show. As he looked around at all the vehicles, Hall’s gaze stopped at a blue and silver Camaro a couple of cars away. “God dang,â€? Hall said. “That Camaro there is hard to beat.â€? $QRWKHU IDQ RI WKH  )RUG owned by Spear was Chris Uhlenhopp, who was examining the accessories closely. “What’s not to like,â€? she said of the car. “You do have to love that those window cranks match the interior. They’re awesome.â€? For some people, like Margaret Hearn of Hampton, the cars were a trip down memory lane. Hearn was intensely pondering a vintage 1930 Ford Pick-em-Up,

owned by Randy and Marlene Johnson of Clear Lake. “My God, that’s about as old as I am,â€? Hearn said of the petite pick-up truck. After looking at the car show entry tag on the windshield, however, she changed her tune. “I’m about 12 years older than that,â€? she admitted with a laugh. Aside from the music, food, and classic cars, there were tractors – and lots of them. As noon-time hit, tractors of all makes and models began to invade downtown Hampton. &UDLJ'RQQHOO\RI./0-.4&5 said there were slightly less than 100 tractors that participated in the paUDGH ZKLFK VSDQQHG PRUH WKDQ  miles around Franklin County and went through multiple communities. “The weather’s made it perfect today,â€?

Donnelly said there had been a few breakdowns along the route, but overall, it had been a successful ride coming into the lunchtime break in Hampton. “It’s typical,â€? he said of the breakdowns. “These tractors are all \HDUVROG,WÂśVDORQJULGH for this old machinery.The guys are really good about helping out.

Dispatchers: From Page 1 much back and forth and some seemingly potential setbacks, county and city representatives agreed to move forward with a plan that had previously been proposed several months earlier â&#x20AC;&#x201C; called Draft No. 11 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would allow the three current dispatchers at the city to move over to the Emergency Management Commission. There were four dispatchers in prior discussions, however one of the city dispatchers recently resigned from her job with the city. Jeanine Hodge, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been with the city many years, resigned the week of July 29, Hampton City Manager Ron Dunt FRQÂżUPHG If the county and city agree, the dispatchers would become employees of the commission but would receive WKHLUSD\FKHFNVDQGEHQHÂżWVIURPWKH county. Additionally, the dispatchers would have to agree to accept a benHÂżW SDFNDJH GLIIHUHQW WKDQ WKH RQH they currently enjoy at the city and HTXDO WR WKH EHQHÂżW SDFNDJH WKDW county employees have. The city benHÂżWSDFNDJHLVEHWWHUÂżQDQFLDOO\WKDQ the county one and if the dispatchers DJUHHWRWKHUHGXFWLRQLQEHQHÂżWVDQG the Teamsters Union agrees to it, then a deal could be made. The components of Draft No. 11 include a revenue share of 60 percent from the county and 40 percent from the city to fund the required $280,000 per year cost of the dispatchers. A decision would have to be made regarding whether a special levy or a $29 per capita yearly tax would fund the dispatchers in the future. Also, the agreement of having union contracts for the dispatchers mirror those of the county employees would have to be agreed upon. The two attorneys left the meeting with instructions to clean up the legal language in Draft No. 11 and to arrange a meeting with Teamsters Union representatives and the dispatchers to try to hash out an agreePHQWRQWKHEHQHÂżWFKDQJHV â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think in a matter of a couple of weeks, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d know if it was a go,â&#x20AC;? Hanks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do whatever we can to get this done as fast as we can.â&#x20AC;? The meeting began with a consensus from all involved that an agreement needed to be reached as soon as

possible for the sake of county residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all parties are interested in moving forward,â&#x20AC;? said Franklin County Sheriff Larry Richtsmeier, who is the chairman of the Emergency Management Commission. Hampton Mayor Shawn Dietz, a key player in the dispatching discussions during the past year and also on the Emergency Management Commission board, agreed with Richtsmeier.  Âł7KHFLW\GHÂżQLWHO\KDVDQLQWHUHVW in moving forward,â&#x20AC;? Dietz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this meeting tonight is a start of that.â&#x20AC;? Hanks said that Chapter 29 C of the Iowa Code allowed for a 28 E agreement on emergency communications that would allow city and county entities to join forces on communication VHUYLFHV WR EH PRUH HIÂżFLHQW VDYH money, and work cooperatively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re simply trying to assist the parties to get to where they want to be,â&#x20AC;? Hanks said of the discussions. An agreement then came to the forefront, as both Eberling and Nolte expressed worry that if the dispatchers moved from the city to the county, WKH\ÂśG EULQJ WKHLU EHQHÂżWV RYHU DQG create waves with current county employees who may want the better benHÂżWVWKHGLVSDWFKHUVHQMR\DWWKHFLW\ â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to show the public that if there are additional costs, there is a MXVWLÂżHGLQFUHDVHLQVHUYLFH´(EHUOLQJ said. Nolte said the possibility of county employees in the Teamsters Union ZDQWLQJWKHVDPHEHQHÂżWVDVWKHGLVpatchers worried him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the 28 E, if they come over to directly be county employees, they ZRXOGKDYHPRUHEHQHÂżWVWKDQZHGR at the county,â&#x20AC;? Nolte explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That opens up a whole can of worms for us going into union negotiations.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could cost the county a couple of hundred thousand dollars extra,â&#x20AC;? Nolte added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go there. :KDW RQH XQLRQ JHWV LQ EHQHÂżWV DOO unions will want. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had employees tell me that if the dispatchers come RYHUDQGJHWEHQHÂżWVWKH\DUHQÂśWJHWting, the next time negotiations would come up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a topic.â&#x20AC;? Both attorneys did agree with the fact that once the dispatchers moved

to the commission, they would bring ZLWK WKHP WKHLU FXUUHQW EHQHÂżWV DV well as their collective bargaining rights. However, a prior problem that the city had been hung up on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; guaranteed jobs for the dispatchers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was removed when the attorneys told the assembled group that a 28 E agreement allows for the employees to move from one entity to another and sidestepping hiring or normal EEOC laws and requirements. After some haggling and disagreements over how much the disability insurance and health insurance could potentially cost the county if the dispatchers did move over, the topic switched to alternative options on how to approach the issue. Dietz theorized that maybe the dispatchers could be contracted out to the emergency management commission for a short period of time while the city still paid their salary and benHÂżWV â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would it be possible where the service moves over, the 911 Commission buys the equipment, and moves it (to the law enforcement center), but the employees essentially stay City of Hampton employees,â&#x20AC;? Dietz asked the attorneys. Hanks then told the group that there are many ways to accomplish the goals of a 28 E agreement, and yes, he felt it was feasible that the commission buy the dispatcher services instead of hiring them outright. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can buy all kinds of services legally,â&#x20AC;? Hanks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can do it with janitorial, with road maintenance. You have more than one way to get where you want to be.â&#x20AC;? Eberling then said to the group that the county has been willing to go down that road before, but he noted the city has rejected that idea many times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We presented that to the city many times in this process,â&#x20AC;? Eberling said. Dietz agreed with Eberling, and said that the city was concerned with â&#x20AC;&#x153;double-dippingâ&#x20AC;? on taxes its residents currently paid for the dispatch services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so he was in favor of only a two-year deal for contracted dispatch services. Then, he said, the commission would need to hire on the dispatchers from the city.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the reasons that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work in the long term,â&#x20AC;? Dietz said of contacting the dispatchers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the City of Hampton residents are being taxed twice for this. There needs to be a sunset on that. The residents of Hampton are being taxed twice, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I see there needs to be a change in the set up.â&#x20AC;? Another potential problem of contracting the city dispatchers to the commission, said Dunt, was the logistics. Dunt said that there could be legal liability issues for the dispatchers and the city since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be working inside a county building as well as acting as temporary jailers in charge of suspects held there. Dunt also said that the job of managing the dispatchers would still belong to Hampton Police Chief Bob Schaefer, and it would be hard for him to manage employees who were in another building separate from where he works. As the sides bandied ideas back and forth and traded possibilities, Franklin County Supervisor Jerry Plagge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who â&#x20AC;&#x153;attendedâ&#x20AC;? the meeting via Skype over an internet connection with a pair of web-cameras â&#x20AC;&#x201C; spoke up and tried to make sure everyone understood what the purpose of the meeting was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have a real unique opportunity here. Maybe we could do this in a two-step phase,â&#x20AC;? Plagge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have to be a compromise on this. If you have trained employees, why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you use them?â&#x20AC;? Faced with what seemed like a stoppage in the talks, Dietz and Nolte expressed a sense of frustration with the time the group had spent to that point and accomplishing nothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we were real close on this,â&#x20AC;? Nolte said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now I think we are further apart.â&#x20AC;? But, the conversation quickly turned positive when the subject and content of Draft No. 11 arose. Within minutes, it seemed, the two sides agreed that Draft No. 11 was a good option and could be re-worked to reach an agreement as long as the dispatchers and Teamsters Union ofÂżFLDOVZRUNHGRXWWKHEHQHÂżWVLVVXHV

Technology changes and building improvements will greet students at West Fork next week By Nick Pedley Increased student access to technology will be the main focus of the West Fork Community School District when doors open for the new school year August 19-20. West Forkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh and eighth grades will become one-to-one classrooms this fall. All students in those grades are scheduled to receive an Apple iPad once school starts to assist with coursework and technology skill development. Five iPads were also added to each elementary classroom to create an in-room tech center. According to superintendent Darrin Strike, the devices will help students break down information and visualize examples more clearly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could have had a mobile cart with all the elementaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iPads on it, but we wanted the devices in the hands of the students on a daily basis,â&#x20AC;? explained Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We no longer want kids to memorize redundant facts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we want to shift instruction to where the kids are the creators.â&#x20AC;? The new iPad initiative was one of the primary focuses for West Fork this past year. Strike said over 30 teachers participated in iPad instruction classes, and he was happy to see

them expand their technology skills. Additional attention was also given to strengthening the professional bonds amongst the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teachers. Strike said West Fork has expanded on their internal professional learning community by adding an extra layer of what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;leaders of leaders.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teachers lead groups to assist with improving instruction by breaking down the needs of all students within the school,â&#x20AC;? he explained.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We focus on R.T.I. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; response to intervention. We look at supplemental support of all students who need help with keeping up with the Iowa C.O.R.E.â&#x20AC;? In addition to technology and course instruction, West Fork was quite busy with rennovations to district infrastructure this summer. The Rockwell campus saw considerable improvements. The parking area along the eastside of the building was redone, a new boiler

and piping were installed, the gymâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ă&#x20AC;RRUZDVUHÂżQLVKHGDQGDQHZVKDGH structure will be constructed on the playground soon.  7KH6KHIÂżHOGEXLOGLQJZDVQÂśWQHglected, either.

A new year, a fresh start Yet another school year is upon us next week, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe summer has already come and gone.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Isolate Me I was pretty excited to learn Hampton would have a brew-pub. Like Tom T. Hall, I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow. I could live without it but it goes good with food. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have one with supper every night as long as freedom rings. When I learned that Rustic Brew had to wait for some sort of state control to serve their own concoctions, I just chalked it up to another notch in the grip of the state over its subjects. As I visit with people in every conceivable business, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same story; ridiculous regulations increase their costs which are then passed on to consumers. That is if they survive the tight margins created by these unnecessary rules that threaten their viability. There has been a huge amount of growth in the micro-brew business. But much of it is hitting a ceiling. There are state limits to quantities a brew-pub can sell and they are limited to selling through established distributors. ,¡P QRW JHWWLQJ LQWR VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FV LQ Iowa because this column is about the general effects of regulation and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them clouded by details. The article I read about this included a Michigan brewery that has put on hold a $2 million expansion and 120 new jobs because of state regulations protecting established breweries. The question that should immediDWHO\FRPHWRPLQGLVZKREHQHĂ&#x20AC;WV from these laws? Of course it is the members of the Michigan Beer and Wine Wholesalers Association. They see inroads by brewers of beer with taste, as opposed to yellow carbonated water, into their market, so they have given over $3 million in cam-

paign contributions in order to supposedly protect the safety of beer and preserve an â&#x20AC;&#x153;orderlyâ&#x20AC;? market. My dad often spoke of the damage trade associations do to consumers. But he fell into the same trap as many others. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong ZLWKWKHDVVRFLDWLRQVLWLVWKHLULQĂ Xence on government that is the problem. The regulations shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist at all. There is no need for them except as a weapon used to circumvent a market that might direct consumers to their competitors. The examples above are but a tiny part of the problem. Remember the embassies being closed in the Middle East because of terrorist threats? When I heard about this I thought, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good start. Why do we have embassies at all? Are they bases for spies? Spies would work better out of a less conspicuous base anyway. What is wrong with Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; relationships in foreign countries bypassing the middlemen at embassies? For Americans who want to stay home, why should they pay taxes to support staff in luxurious manVLRQV DQG RIĂ&#x20AC;FHV DOO RYHU WKH ZRUOG getting in the way of free trade? The reason for embassies is the same as the reason for regulations on micro-breweries; to protect businesses that shift their costs onto someone else.

come from? Government. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become accustomed to having all input Ă&#x20AC;OWHUHGWKURXJKJRYHUQPHQWWRVXFK an extent that we accept the notion that nothing happens without it. Nothing could be further from the WUXWK*RYHUQPHQWVWLĂ HV,WGRHVQ¡W create anything. It merely shifts costs from the less connected to those with deep enough pockets to buy politicians. If an American wants to buy rugs or sell farm equipment in the Middle East he should pay for his own protection or rely on police over there, just as we pay for law enforcement here to protect whoever comes here. The cost of that trade should EHERUQHE\WKHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDULHVRIWKDW trade. If the farm machinery is important enough for the trading partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country to ensure the safety of trade reps over there, they will. Embassies serve the same purpose as regulations of business. Without them, the true cost of products traded DOORYHUWKHZRUOGZRXOGEHUHĂ HFWHG in the price of the product, instead of distorted with taxpayer handouts to favored businesses. Suggestions of closing embassies will be met with accusations of isolationism. But the truth is embassies and government relations with foreign governments in general are the epitome of isolationism. Embassies stand in the way of private citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; relationships overseas in the same way regulations stand in the way of me getting a good beer from an entrepreneur in Hampton.

Buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story

Buddy was a dog that did dog things. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trained. He was just a country dog and he did what country dogs do. I would just like to have people know about Buddy. I want to explain to people how we appreciated the kindness of the deputy and the care for the dog. Thankfully, Buddy is now in a good place. Buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog mother, his birth mother, brought him to our house and left him on our doorstep. He was a little muddy ball by our back door, so Warren and I picked him up and put him in a towel since he was so wet. We wrapped him up and dried him off. When we put him to bed that night we put him in the garage. But he cried all night. I put a radio in, and blankets, but he kept on crying. So I picked him up and wrapped him in a towel and rocked him on the porch swing. Ever after he was my dog. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how he got there until a couple of weeks later when his mother came with another puppy. That puppy was born a half a mile away from our house and we said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, mother dog, one dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough IRU XVÂľ 7KH Ă&#x20AC;UVW SXSS\ ZKR ZH named Buddy, just wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave my side. A breeder came by one morning and said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be looking for the puppy, and said her husband saw the dog in the yard. But when she saw how Buddy stayed by my side, she decided not to take it away. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bonded to you, and once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bonded, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never take him.â&#x20AC;? And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how Buddy joined the family. We learned when the breeder came that Buddy was an Akita. Later, we found out Buddy was also a climber. No matter how high a fence you may have, he would climb it. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent more in a month for leashes, body harnesses and collars than we have on groceriesâ&#x20AC;Śand they still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep him. Warren even tied him to trees with rope! He was neutered too, we thought that would help. Of course, no matter

how many times he would get away, he would always come back. A lady at the vet clinic suggested we make a big tag that said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know my own way home.â&#x20AC;? We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But, we want to thank the people who did stop and bring him home who were not afraid of him. We want to thank the people who were caring. This dog is a very intelligent dogâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe smarter about some things than people are. You can check with Karen Symens, our neighbor who works at the vet clinic. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you about our counting dog. This is the story. One time he ran away and somebody picked him up and took him to the vet clinic. When I went there, Karen brought him out and he looked at me and looked at WKH Ă RRU DQG , VDLG ´%XGG\ +DYH you asked Karen how much itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost for you to get out of doggy jail?â&#x20AC;? And with his paw, he stomped on WKHĂ RRUWKUHHWLPHV6WRPS6WRPS Stomp! Karenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jaw dropped. I thought it was pretty cute, so I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buddy, what did you say?â&#x20AC;? Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!

flood victims in Minot, N.D.

By Jeff Forward Ten members of the Latimer-based Immanuel United Church of Christ have returned from a charity mission in Minot, N.D., where they helped resLGHQWVUHFRYHUIURPDĂ&#x20AC;RRGWKDW devastated the city. The Rev. Lindsey Braun said the 10 members of the church went to the North Dakota city on July 28 and stayed through Aug. 3, helping rebuild VWUXFWXUHV DQG UHFRYHU IURP WKH Ă&#x20AC;RRG of 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still relying on volunteer help to clean up and rebuild,â&#x20AC;?

Braun said that while the UCC church in Latimer has its youth go on volunteer missions every four years, this trip involved adults and was the ÂżUVWRILWVNLQGLQPRUHWKDQ\HDUV â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all of us got a lot of muscle aches from the work,â&#x20AC;? said Braun, who went on the mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During the week we were there, we learned a lot. It was amazing how two years later, people were so grateful of the work we were doing.â&#x20AC;? The church members who went on the trip and volunteered their skills included: Mark and Debbie Bruns; Steve Bruns; Dennis and Cathy Carlson; Ann Gleason; Marlan and Lavonna Meyer; BobTrager; and Braun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Much has been done to help the people here,â&#x20AC;? Braun noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But those still in need are often the elderly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those who are unable to work and begin the process of rebuilding on their own.â&#x20AC;? Braun said that funding for the Ă&#x20AC;RRG UHOLHI ÂłGULHV XS´ RQ 2FW  hence volunteers with expertise in areas such as carpentry skills are still needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope Village, the ecumenical organization we worked with, is doing the good â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but hard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; work of matching up volunteers with those in need to help rebuild Minot,â&#x20AC;? Braun added. Those interested in volunteering their services can check out opportunities and get information at www.hopevillagend.org.

On Saturday July 27, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Franklin County raised $66,892.10 to support the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission of saving lives from cancer, leaving many volunteers exhausted, but happy, after walking hundreds of miles at the West Fork High School track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through their hard work in preparing for the event, and by spending hours walking for the cause, Franklin County residents certainly did their part to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,â&#x20AC;? said Sheri Bogue, volunteer chair for the 2013 Relay For Life. More than 130 people, represented by 11 teams, participated in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Relay event.

Having surrendered the lead late in the last two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Watkins Glen International, Kyle Busch reversed the trend Sunday by winning the Cheez-It 355 at the 2.45-mile road course by .486 seconds over runner-up Brad Keselowski. The third time may have been the charm for Busch, but it was a jinx for pole-winner Marcos Ambrose. Ambrose had the race in hand, having led 51 of the ďŹ rst 61 laps, until an inopportune caution in the middle of a pit stop cycle dropped him back to 12th for a restart on Lap 64 of 90. Busch grabbed the lead when Ambrose came to pit road under yellow on Lap 62 and held it the rest of the way.

Midwest Meter donates $5,000 to Hampton Public Library By Kim Manning Special to the Hampton Chronicle Midwest Meter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; owned by Rick & Julie Salvesen - donated $5,000 to the Hampton Public Library to improve the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book budget for the Fiscal Year 13/14. The Hampton Public Library has been in the news recently because of their diminishing book budget and the effects this has on the citizens of Hampton and Franklin County who love to read and are lifelong learners. Of course in a public library setting, the customers range in age from 1 month to 99-years-old. A declining book budget such as the library had before Midwest Meterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation most affects the very young children as well as the adult customers because neither have access to a school library. The Hampton Public Library, this summer has averaged 100 customers a day for services such as newspapers, magazines, internet access, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as well as adult programming, and books of course. Patrons viewing the Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website and using all of our digital services are not included in these statistics. In a recent study, the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading today unveiled a new report on the role of museums and libraries in early learning. Susan H. Hildreth, Director of IMLS said in a recent interview, â&#x20AC;&#x153; This report is a call to action: Now is the time for policy makers and practitioners to fully use the capacity of

libraries and museums in their early learning efforts.â&#x20AC;? According to the report, libraries and museums support learning by increasing high-quality early learning experiences, engaging and supporting IDPLOLHVDVWKHLUFKLOGÂśVÂżUVWWHDFKHUV supporting development of executive function and â&#x20AC;&#x153;deeper learningâ&#x20AC;? through literacy and STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) experiences, creating seamless links across early learning and the early grades, positioning children for meeting expectations of the Common Core State Standards, addressing the summer slide, linking new digital technologies to learning, and leveraging community partnerships. Communities, the report recommends, should include the library in initiatives designed to increase family engagement in school readiness, examine ways to help vulnerable, underserved families access to library services and launch public information campaigns.

Hansell Ladies: From Page 1 building, but that was pretty much it. However, all that changed when the Community Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future came into question by some local residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the younger people thought we should close it and one farmer said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to buy it to park his tractors in it, and that really scared me,â&#x20AC;? said Juhl, the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just no place in town where people can meet. Our church closed, the elevator closedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly anything left. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the town to die completely.â&#x20AC;? The spark was lit, and the four-member committee got to work in early 2012. They coordinated a thorough clean-up of the Community Center and made a list of improvements that were needed throughout the building. The roof repair was the consensus choice amongst committee members, and they decided to move foward with fundraising efforts. Prior to obtaining the grant from the FCCF, the committee received a donation of $2,000 from the Hansell United Methodist Church after it closed in 2011. Additional funds for the roof repairs came from soup supper donations and revenue raised from building rentals. The renovations have created a marked turn-around in interest throughout Hansell and the surrounding area, the women explained. The Community Center hosted two soup suppers in the win-

ter and potlucks on Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, all of which saw great turnouts. The group said the events help bring local residents together and strengthen the sense of community in the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many times someone has told us how glad they are about these get-togethers. One person told me she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen her neighbor that lives a mile away for over a year, and without the soup supper it would have been even longer,â&#x20AC;? said Juhl. The Hansell Community Center was constructed in 1984 and was funded by left over monies from the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centennial celebration in 1981. Nolte said most people book the building for wedding receptions, graduation parties, reunions and quinceaneras, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open for gatherings of all sorts. Though the roof project was completed four months ago, the committee doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on stopping there. Eventually, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to build a glass case and move trophies won by Hansell High School athletic teams to the Community Center. The collection is currently housed at the old bank building and includes two girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; state basketball trophies won in the 1940s and 1950s. Additional plans for a new septic system, metal doors and tables are in the works down the road. It may take some hard work dedication, but the foursome is more than ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We pretty much took charge because we knew how much work

JoAnn Young, president; Carol Nolte, treasurer and Bev Juhl, secretary, stand outside the Hansell Community Center. The group, along with vice president Judy Harper, comprises the Hansell Community Betterment Committee, and has spearheaded recent improvements to the building. (Photo by Nick Pedley, Hampton Chronicle) went into this building before, and Âł:HÂżJXUHWKDWLIZHQHHGWRJLYH we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lose it,â&#x20AC;? said up a weekend to help out, us girls Young, the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president. can do that.â&#x20AC;?
