Eberling retires after 36 years at Sukup Manufacturing Co. By Joe Buttweiler, Technical Writer, Sukup Mfg. Edna Eberling retired from Sukup Manufacturing Co. on May 31 with a big send-off from coworkers and a final accounting, you might say, of her accuracy as inventory control specialist. Smiling with papers in hand to prove her point, she presented company President Charles Sukup with evidence that inventory accuracy was within company standards – no small challenge given all the new products that have been introduced in recent years. The triumphant though somewhat tongue-in-cheek presentation drew laughter and applause from the scores of co-workers attending the retirement party. Despite the rapid growth in inventory, Eberling did “an excellent job of keeping track of everything,� said Steve Sukup, chief financial officer of the company. He and Charles thanked her very much for her precise and conscientious work, and presented her with gifts including a furniture certificate, a Sukup jacket and cap, a miniature Sukup bin filled with candy corn, flowers, and a plaque honoring her 36 years of work at Sukup Manufacturing.

Edna Eberling Eberling started working for “He said that you’ve got to step the company on Feb. 28, 1977, as on the pedal to take the pressure a plant worker, putting contact off the line.� blades on rotating contact boards Aha! for stirring machines.

She was promoted to supervisor of the electrical department. “I said, ‘I can’t do that.’ He said, ‘Yes you can.’ � He was right. Eberling led the department for 20 years, supervising between eight and 20 people, depending on the season. “We just knew from seeing her work that she’d be capable supervising people and would catch on very quickly,� Eugene Sukup said. “She was precise.� The precision made her a perfect match for the inventory control position. She worked in that role for the past 16 years, monitoring inventory of purchased parts mainly, but also of some of the manufactured parts. As she looked back on her career, she recalled there were some very long days. One time she worked a 16-hour shift, not leaving until 11 p.m., to get a shipment ready for a customer. Back before early-season discounts were in place, “we stayed late quite a few nights,� Eberling said, to get products ready for shipment during the busy summer season. “She will be missed,� said coworker Maggie Lawson, who shared an office with Eberling.

Busy, busy, busy! Just the way it should be! I remember the days when we first purchased this place. If I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be caught up with work by the end of the day . . . I was too busy. Near as I can tell . . . Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be caught up . . . someday! And, believe it or not . . . thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way I like it. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing . . . because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing I work in here alone . . . because there just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t room for two! I even have supplies stacked up in the front office. One good thing about that is the fact that one canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the floor . . . thusly no need to vacuum! All in all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great week. Only reminded twice that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do right in an article in the paper. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good week! Home . . . A couple of nights spent working around the adobe. And one day on the week end. Truth be known . . . I had planned to just take it easy. Sit back and watch the tube. That lasted about 15 minutes! I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how many â&#x20AC;&#x153;littleâ&#x20AC;? things needed to be done in the house and in the garage. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there are many, many more. Started the cars I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive that often. Convertible started. Edge started. (I discovered a month ago that if I unplug the radar detector and the GPS . . . the battery wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down in a week!) Ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I brilliant! Motorcycle and Monte Carlo . . . which I have been driving . . . started of course. I was sure the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;47 Ford Coupe would start. Wrong! I

decided real quick that it was out of gas. For some reason the gas will evaporate over a period of time. I knew it was almost full last fall when I put it away. A simple solution was to get some gas in a can . . . pour it in . . . and it would start. Gas can in trunk and off to the gas station. Lifted up the trunk to remove the can . . . and the trunk lid came down and hit me in the head! That hurt . . . but no real problem. My brain has already been damaged! Started to fill the can with gas . . . someone said hi, I looked up . . . the hose came out of the can . . . and covered my pant leg with gas! Oh, good! Anyway, back to the storage unit . . . poured in the gas . . . and the car started right away. Other than smelling like gas . . . a headache . . . everything went great! Why do I make so much trouble out of something simple? I should know the answer to that . . . Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing it all my life! Spent the other day of the week end in Altoona. I find it hard to believe how much Little Lid can change in a week! And how she can remember things. Most of the time I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember what I had for breakfast . . . and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come up with something that happened six months ago! Anyway we had a good time . . . out for lunch . . . some more playtime, and it was time for her nap. My cue to head north and wait another week to see them. Be good, Kids+! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showtime!

Rain delay day was the word of the day and today I am writing about that day. General Severe relinquished his command to me for the day and he would only give me the rank of Private. Geez that Army, my goodness we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have Privates in the Air Force, we were â&#x20AC;&#x153;AIRMEN.â&#x20AC;? Anyhow, Bobby Shreckengost called me and told me about a great game for us to play; he said he thought for hours on how to implement it. So being the kind hearted, considerate soul I am I said sure Bobby Boy. We had fourteen able bodied, well almost, men donning their war gear with weapons cleaned and ready to fire. Dicky Browny led Booby Shreckengost and Jimmy Saylor to victory with a total of 131. Oh shucks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right its Bobby Shreck, sorry Bob, not really. Anyhow Bobby was absolutely on faaar, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire in Bohemian,

With the conclusion of the 2013 session, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take this opportunity to reflect on some of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishments. Since last fall, we have consistently voiced our commitment to making Iowa a stronger place to live and raise a family- through balancing the budget, providing significant tax relief and reform, and promoting policies to encourage great schools and communities. I am happy to report that we have fulfilled these promises with the conclusion of this legislative session. As promised, throughout the budget process, we stood by our core principles to not spend more than the state takes in, not use one-time money for ongoing expenses, not intentionally underfund our commitments simply to fix the problem down the road, and to return unused tax dollars to Iowa taxpayers. By following these principles, the bipartisan budgets passed this year spend 88 percent of what the state is allowed to spend, property tax credits are being fully-funded for the first time since 2002, and we were able to fund our public universities at a level where student tuition is frozen for the 2013-2014 school year. The state is spending less than it collects for the third consecutive year, our budget reserves remain full, and the ending balance is projected to be $600 million. Additionally, because of the sound budgeting practices we stood by, we led the way on reducing our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final budget uses a portion of the ending balance to pay off $114 million in debt earlier than required, while also fulfilling our obligations in regards to pension funds. This is the way Iowans manage their own checkbooks, and it should be no different for state government. Addressing the burden of property taxes placed on the backs of Iowa taxpayers has been long overdue. For decades, the Legislature struggled to come up with a solution to the unsustainable growth of property taxes, but we were finally able to do so this year. The bipartisan legislation provides real relief for all classifications of property. SF 295 limits assessment growth from four percent to three percent on ag and residential taxpayers and also includes a ten percent roll-

back on taxable value for commercial and industrial property. Once fully implemented, it will provide $560 million in property tax relief across Iowa. It is meaningful and reliable so taxpayers can count on relief from year to year. Finally, the bill implements a permanent mechanism for the Taxpayer Trust Fund credit, returning the over-collection of taxpayer dollars back to the taxpayer. Much discussion was given this session on how to care for Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neediest citizens. With IowaCares expiring, we saw this as an opportunity to improve upon our current system of care. We knew some wanted us to go down the path of ceding control to the federal government, but rather, we worked diligently to come up with a bipartisan, Iowa-based solution that makes the most sense for our state- a plan that would be implemented close to home. The Iowa Health & Wellness Plan will improve the quality of care for Medicaid recipients, while

Dennis hit his drive on hole 6 with a 7 iron 150 yards, banked off the hill, slid down the bank, curved around the 98 degree slant, banged the pin and he got a hole in nothing. In 5th place and money winners, naturally, was the team led by the General, one Severe type, Billiam Nolte and Larrith Lockwood. Ol Billiam there sank a putt from 95 feet off the green. Yup, the guy is like a dart in the bulls eye. They shot 139 now that just ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and I mean ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t berry good. However when you are in the money it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, nope ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all bad. They won free tickets to ride the trolley in San Francisco, dated last week. Okay I am trachle so I must let me cranial damage regenerate so I bid you ado. Larry Lockwood told me that morbid was a high offer and Denny Foss said protein is in favor of young people. Billiam Nolte said he is antibody, against everyone. Yup once again I shall be like a snake after a mouseâ&#x20AC;Śbazinga Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gone.

rewarding patients for personal responsibility and improving their overall health and wellness. The legislation also includes an opt-out option if federal funding changes occur. We were committed to improving the quality and rigor of education our children are receiving in the classroom as well. This session we passed a comprehensive education reform package that offers flexibility for school districts, innovation for teachers, accountability from our schools for parents, and protection for taxpayers. The bill will reward excellence in the classroom and

through an innovative career pathway system for teachers, empower those excellent teachers to teach their methods to their colleagues. This legislation implements policy changes focused on achievement-driven reforms and greater student outcomes. You can be certain that we will continue to build upon the success of the 2013 session, work on additional priority issues during the interim, and be ready to lead again in January. As always, please feel free to contact me anytime with the issues you care about at linda.upmeyer@legis. iowa.gov or 515-281-4618.

as he had one monster drive, one monster approach shot and one monster putt. Now one of each is an accomplishment for him. Dicky right in there hit some huge boomers off the tee, in fact one exploded the golf ball and another went so far they could never find it. They thought maybe it went over the road on #5 and down the railroad tracks ending up in Swaledale. Jimmy Sailor Saylor was uncanny as he almost made one good shot. Their victory won them a pair of Air Force brogans but they have to re-enlist. Second place with no prizes was my contingent of Ed Siems (9 holes) (Chuck Nolte (9 holes) and Duane Dorenkamp with a solid 132. If and only if we had made two more putts we would have won, now isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that genius thinking on my part. Ol Eddy the man continues to harass himself when

he makes a bad shot. Edward he calls himself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you dumbo keep your head down.â&#x20AC;? Duane Dorenkamp smacked some great shots, he hit one 185 yards with his pitching wedge, and well itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the truth as you know I never fib. Third place and winners of mega bucks was the platoon of Mike Paine, Roger Madsen and David Levitt with a 135. David was as accurate as a fine Swiss watch on his chip shots and putts. They, whoever they are, said he chipped a shot in from 95 feet and sank a putt that was 82 feet. That is just the beginning, he continued on throughout the 18 holes with awesome shots. Roger Madsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jaw was sore when he finished and it was due to the fact that he was in awe of Daveeee Boy. Mike pain Paine smacked a drive that could be heard around the world, oh thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right it was the splash as went into the pond 35 feet in front of him. They each won a new putter but they have to order from Putter-Putt-Putt Putter Co., 1500 Putter St., Putter, Russia. Bob Siems and Dennis Foss played as

I have had good luck growing culinary herbs in pots on my sunny deck. I have also grown them in the garden in well-drained soil. I enjoy being able to experiment with fresh herbs in my cooking. Plus, you can buy herb plants for about the same price as you buy one bunch at the store. Below are some brief tips on growing and using herbs. If you want more information, check out From Garden to Table: Harvesting Herbs for Healthy Eating by North Dakota State University. Basil - Likes sunny sheltered spots. Dark green leaves have sweet flavor with mild pungency. Space 8-12â&#x20AC;? apart. Use with tomatoes; in fresh pesto; pasta sauce, peas, zucchini. Grows well in containers. Good border plant. Mint - Has tendency to spread invasively in outdoor gardens. Purple flowers. Refreshing odor & flavor. Often used as a garnish. Roots easily from stem cuttings. Used with carrots, fruit salads, parsley, peas, desserts, spring rolls, salads, sauces. Oregano - Grows well in containers. Can also propagate from cuttings or division of the mature

plant. Use with tomato dishes, beef, spaghetti, clams, soups (bean, minestrone, and tomato), beans, eggplant, and mushrooms Parsley Grows well in a container. Keep trimmed so plant does not develop flowers. Use with salads, vegetables, pastas. Rosemary - Grows well in a container. Use with chicken, fish, lamb, pork, roasted potatoes, soups, stews, tomatoes. Herbs should be purchased or picked close to the time you plan to use them. If you grow herbs in your own garden, the best time to harvest herbs is in the morning after the dew is off but the sprigs are fresh. This helps ensure the best flavor and storage quality. Fresh herbs can be stored in an open or perforated plastic bag in your refrigerator crisper drawer

Upmeyer named Advisory Board Member of Right Women, Right Now Washington, D.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) today announced Iowa House Majority Leader Linda Upmeyer (R-Clear Lake) will serve as an advisory board member of the Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) initiative. RWRN is a subset of the Future Majority Project (FMP) the RSLC launched last year focusing on identifying, recruiting, supporting and electing new women candidates to state level offices across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honored to be chosen as an advisory board member of Right Women, Right Now and I am committed to our mission to recruit and support qualified women candidates across the states,â&#x20AC;? said Upmeyer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know qualified women who should run for office and who would be outstanding leaders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to us to ask and encourage them to run. I look forward to joining leadership of Right

Women, Right Now to support women who will work to tackle the challenges within our states reducing the size and scope of government, keeping tax dollars in the pockets of the families and balancing sound budgets.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Upmeyer is an exceptional leader, and we are honored to have her join us in guiding Right Women, Right Now,â&#x20AC;? said RSLC President Chris Jankowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The key to advancing the Republican Party is inviting everyone to the table to ensure our party reflects the full diversity of our nation. We look forward to joining Right Women, Right Now to identify women candidates like Leader Upmeyer who believe in the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, and supporting job creators who can lead the way in our states. The RSLC is fully dedicated to helping these qualified women run for office.â&#x20AC;? The Right Women, Right Now 2013 Advisory Board members

are: Pam Bondi, Co-Chair, Attorney General of Florida; Beth Harwell, Co-Chair, Tennessee Speaker of the House; Kim Wyman, Co-Chair, Secretary of State of Washington; Rebecca Kleefisch, Co-Chair, Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin; Connie Conway, Republican Leader of California State Assembly; Lizbeth Benacquisto, Senate Majority Leader, Florida; Kim Reynolds, Lieutenant Governor of Iowa; Linda Upmeyer, Majority Leader, Iowa House of Representatives; Becky Lockhart, Speaker of the House, Utah; Barbara Comstock, Member of Virginia House of Delegates; Cathy Gillespie, Co-Chair of Constituting America.

AMES, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iowa school children may be counting the days until summer vacation begins, but they may not realize summer means â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to schoolâ&#x20AC;? for teachers. Registration is now open for the fourth annual Iowa Family Economics and Financial Education (FEFE) Teacher Training workshop. This workshop focuses on teaching middle and high school educators to use new tools and build their skills to teach financial literacy to their students. Research compiled by Cynthia Fletcher, a professor and family economics specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, shows that many educators feel they are not well pre-

pared to teach financial skills to their students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While 89 percent of the teachers surveyed agree that students need financial education, relatively few teachers believe they are adequately prepared to teach personal finance topics,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The summer workshop is our direct response to that professional development need in Iowa.â&#x20AC;? In 2012, educators who attended the ISU training workshop were asked to fill out a survey. Only 27 percent felt they were well prepared to teach financial education to their students coming into the workshop. After the course, 87 percent felt that they were well prepared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These sur-

veys show dramatic change in the confidence and preparation to teach this content after the workshop,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. The Iowa FEFE Educator Training workshop is Aug. 6-8 at Iowa State University. To register, visit the registration website at http://www.ucs.iastate.edu/ mnet/fefe/home.html. The registration deadline is July 15. Licensed Iowa educators will receive a discount on the workshop price. Attendees will receive hard copies of the FEFE curriculum, learn about new technologies and identify ways to customize the information learned during the workshop to fit their classroom.

Summer renovations in full swing at West Fork By Nick Pedley Though classes have been out for a week, West Forkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school buildings in Sheffield and Rockwell are still buzzing with activity. Numerous improvements to outdated facilities have been a main focal point for Superintendent Darrin Strike this spring. Topping the list of renovations is a completely revamped heating system in the middle school buidling and a new roof at the high school. The price tags on the projects may give some folks sticker shock, but Strike explained that the improvements will have an immediate impact on the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new boiler will improve efficiency by 20 percent, and that will be seen right away. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an extensive project, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed,â&#x20AC;? he said. Strike said estimates have the boiler replacement pegged at upwards of $800,000. Included in that cost is the removal and replacement of asbestos-wrapped pipes. The superintendent explained that a large portion of the cost is earmarked for the asbestos abatement process. The district had to hire one firm to handle the

removal and another to moniter air quality. According to Strike, the old boiler was installed over 40 years ago. The district investigated installing a geo-thermal system in Rockwell, but engineers steered them towards a hot water set-up powered by natural gas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The building really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best type for geothermal,â&#x20AC;? explained Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older and two stories tall, and the number of years to see a payback would take too long. They figur ed geothermal just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t viable.â&#x20AC;? The district must have the project finished by the next heating season. Work removing pipes and asbestos was ongoing since mid-May and completed last Thursday. Though it may surprise some that asbestos removal started during the school year, Strike assured that the building was safe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-go-anywherenear-that-building type of situation,â&#x20AC;? he said, explaining that workers kept areas quartered off and controlled with reverse air pressure, quality monitoring and plastic barriers. The new boiler may be West Forkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest project this sum-

The high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original rubber membrane on the roof was replaced and is near completion. The protective layer had reached its 10 to 15-year lifespan, and leaking problems had be-

come an issue in certain portions of the building. The project was started in May and cost the district roughly $80,000. Additionally, new shelving and cabinetry will be installed in each elementary classroom this sum-
