The Alegent Health Community Memorial Hospital Foundation will hold its Byways of Excellence banquet Feb. 19 at Shadow Valley Country Club in Woodbine. A tradition since 2004, the event salutes four members of the Harrison County community for their professional and/or personal contributions. Those to be honored this

year include: Velma Oliver (Health and Medicine); the late H.E. (Whitey) Mensching (Business); Charlie Wolford (Education and Civic Leadership); and Scott Hinkel (Youth). •Velma Oliver Oliver was born in 1932 in rural Woodbine and attended rural country school until fifth grade. She graduated from Woodbine Public High School. Oliver

is married to Bob and is the mother of five children, Bill, Larry, Steve, Atoya and Tanya. She has 15 grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren. Velma took EMT classes through Iowa Western Community College and in 1977 became a member of the Woodbine rescue squad. She later took classes to become an instructor and now teaches emergency

medical services and AHA first aid and CPR for IWCC. Oliver enjoys being able to help others and sharing her knowledge. She has always felt though, that she was a mother and grandmother first and responder was just an extra reward to get to help people. Oliver has been a Sunday SEE BYWAYS Page 2

No decision was made at the Jan. 10 council meeting on the candidate for deputy city clerk. “We plan further meetings and to make an offer this week,” said council member Skip Johnson. “We have narrowed the candidates down to three. They are all very good.” The council did approve a motion to offer the new deputy clerk $12 per hour. The council approved the purchase of a 2011 Crown Victoria for the police department. The bid from Woodhouse of $23,282 was approved as was the estimated additional $2,000 needed for equipment such as a strobe package. Smith discussed the police department mobile radio situation. The Federal Communications Commission is requiring land mobile radios to migrate to narrow bandwidths by Jan.1, 2013. Some radios are new enough they can be re-programmed, others will have to be replaced. Smith told the council the radios the police department presently has, can be reprogrammed at approximately $60 per hour. Smith said Harrison County Emergency Management Director Larry Oliver plans to set up a day for all departments in the county and have someone come in and reprogram all at the same time. The city is still investigating other equipment such as well relays and radios for the tower. “I don’t know if we really need hand held radios anymore since the guys have cell phones,” city administrator Nedra Fliehe told the council. “But we do need the ones in the truck and the loader.” The council held a budget work session to close out the meeting. The next council meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Jan. 24. CONSIDERING AN AUCTION?

She states that community involvement allows her to give back to the community. “I feel that volunteering is a good way to help others and give back to my community and make a positive difference.” •H.E. (Whitey) Mensching (posthumously) Whitey Mensching was born Aug. 11, 1925 in the Pisgah area. He worked the family farm until graduating from Magnolia High School in 1942. He married Fran Dec. 1, 1946 when he was still in the military. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was honorably discharged in 1947. During his military service he was a forward observer and Quartermaster, along with being a chauffeur for a colonel and general. After he and Fran were married, he farmed for a year and then joined the Iowa Highway Patrol. He was with the patrol for three years and then sold cemetery lots in Illinois and Wisconsin until 1953. Mensching then became chief of police in Storm Lake for three years and later returned to sales for an engineering firm in Storm Lake. That led to selling equipment in water and waste treatment. In 1975 Mensching began Vulcan Industries Inc., in Magnolia with three employees. Vulcan would soon become one of the leading manufacturers of

wastewater treatment equipment and high-quality process equipment. Mensching retired from Vulcan in 1999 and sold the company. He and Fran had nearly 64 years together and traveled around the world. They had six children, Gary, Ron, Scott, Debra, Lisa and Gayla; 24 grandchildren and 30 greatgrandchildren. Mensching passed away Nov. 13, 2010 at Immanuel Medical Center from complications due to pneumonia. He was 85. •Charlie Wolford Wolford was born in Omaha Sept. 9, 1926 and went to Holy Name High School. He went to war and later finished his high school education at the age of 20.

FROM PAGE 1 uating survey results. “This has been especially true the past few years when corn and soybean prices have varied considerably,” Duffy said. “Monthly prices for corn averaged 37 percent higher July to November this year compared to average monthly prices from January through June. Soybean prices are 21 percent higher over the same time span.” The highest land values were reported in Northwest Iowa at $6,356 per acre. The lowest values were in South Central Iowa at $2,690 per acre. The highest county average in the state was O’Brien County at $7,148 per acre,

up 16.2 percent from 2009. Decatur County had the lowest average at $2,085 per acre and the lowest dollar increase of $128 per acre. The greatest dollar increase was $1,152 in Wright County. According to Duffy, land values should remain strong at least for the next several months. Beyond that there is a fair degree of uncertainty with respect to whether land values can maintain their current levels. “The volatility in corn and soybean prices and production costs lead to tremendous uncertainty and volatility in the land market, as historically reflected in the Iowa State survey. Land values were up

22 percent in 2007, down 2.2 percent in 2009 and up 15.9 percent in 2010. Since 2004, Iowa land values are up 93 percent,” Duffy said. There has also been a substantial shift in the fundamental supply and demand situation for farmland, Duffy said. “Over 60 percent of the 2009 respondents indicated there were fewer sales in 2009 compared to 2008. This was the largest drop in sales reported in the Iowa State Survey,” Duffy said. “In 2010, almost threefourths of the respondents said sales were either the same or less than 2009. This shows the slump in sales is either continuing or in some cases, worsening throughout the state.”

BOARD: Monthly meeting held FROM PAGE 1 make a final decision at the Feb. 9 meeting. Junior/senior principal Christi Gochenour reported there are presently 32 students taking online courses through Iowa Western Community College at the school with 20 scheduled to take courses fourth quarter. She discussed allowing some of the students to take a laptop home with them and the paperwork that would be necessary for them and their parents to

complete. “I don’t want any student to think they can’t take online courses because they don’t have the technology at home,” Gochenour said. She also informed the board the Web site is ready to be edited. “My goal is to have it up and running by the end of January,” Gochenour said. Elementary principal Jim Makey discussed an article regarding cognitive guided instruction, which is what the elementary staff is working on.

Head cook Peggy Kelly met with the board to update them on how the lunch program works and various federal requirements. She said menus are planned two months in advance. Commodities come in every six months but sometimes not everything ordered is received so menus are subject to change. She said the state mandates the serving sizes of meals. An early graduation request from Rachel Troshynski was approved by the board.

Down Home By Sandy Turner Sandy Turner writes a weekly column “Down Home” which is published in several newspapers in the Midwest. She puts a humorous spin on issues that revolve around families and every day life, drawing from her own experiences.

Dad, snowdrifts and freezing temps It’s hard to find anything good to say about this week. Between dealing with snow, freezing temperatures and worrying about dad, I was about to blow a gasket. I was beginning to think frequent visits plus sorting hundreds of nuts and bolts was working until dad shoveled the driveway with a short-sleeved shirt on. My worries of him being bored suddenly turned into concerns of his capability of being home alone. Snow drifts are freaking him out and he’s constantly staring at the backyard worrying that the eight-foot mounds are going to knock over the privacy fence that separate him from a car dealership. His conversations sway between flying over Iceland during World War II and wishing he could move south. He was getting more than just grumpy, at times he was just plain ole’ mad. His dog is so desperate to get outside he runs to the back door as soon as I show up. Dad convinced himself that the dog was going to get sucked into the snow like quicksand. Since the dog is 20 pounds overweight, it is a struggle for him to wade through, even though I make paths that quickly get covered up by the constant drifting. By Thursday he’d almost convinced me that maybe he’d be better off in a place where he would have the comfort of being surrounded by others and wouldn’t have the stress of worrying about the dog, the snow or the frozen birdbath. How long would he have stayed outside in freezing temperatures with a short-sleeved shirt on? What if he thinks the dog is stuck in the snow and tries to retrieve him? I often wish we could have 15 minutes of conversation without dementia playing a part in it. I’d quickly ask him the questions that I’m trying to find the perfect answers for. Ten years ago when his dementia was just slightly apparent – and he knew what was coming – he told me the answers, but I need to know if they still hold true. Do you want to live alone? Are you really unhappy or just frustrated because you can’t sit in your backyard – your favorite place in the whole world? When I come by after work he’s already heading to bed. As soon as it gets dark, he’s down for the count. Dad called and it was 7:30 at night. This can’t be good, as a dozen scenarios run through my mind. The neighbor was calling to say that he found dad and dog frozen in the backyard or his confusion had finally got the best of him and he forgot where he was. “Young lady,” he said in a stronger voice than I’ve heard in awhile. “Where are you?” which quickly took me back to teenage days of running rampant. “Home,” I said. “What’s wrong?” “I couldn’t go to sleep until I knew you were OK. There are snow drifts 10 feet tall out there.” Turned out to be a great week after all, as I knew a part of dad is still intact and he’s going to be OK.

In a blaze of glory Helmuth Fromsdorf was wet behind the ears, out of his depth, or any other phrase one chose to describe him. At the ripe age of 24 the high command had made the inexperienced young man commander of the U-853 German submarine. Dismayed crewmembers described their commander’s poor judgment and leadership skills in the letters they wrote to family and friends. Fromsdorf had served as a junior officer, but his previous job had illprepared him to run a submarine. Perhaps, his superiors promoted him to captain because after losing nearly 800 U-boats and commanders the Germans had to use the people they had. Though Helmuth’s men mocked him behind his back, he was probably perceptive enough to know they doubted his ability to command. The U-853 had a good combat record in spite of Fromsdorf’s youth and inexperience, and it was operating off the New England coast in early 1945. The German phase of the war ended, and on May 4, 1945 German Naval Headquarters in Berlin ordered all U-boats to cease

hostilities and prepare to surrender. Captain Fromsdorf didn’t acknowledge the message and turned his submarine into a rogue agent of continuing warfare. The U-853 prowled up and down the coastline until it found the USS Eagle Boat off Portland, Maine. A torpedo sank the ship and 49 crew members died. The U-boat continued along the coast searching for more prey until it found the US Merchant Marine ship, the SS Black Point off Point Judith Lighthouse, R.I. The Black Point went down with 19 crewmembers in full view of employees on the lighthouse. They and several ships sent out an SOS and the USS Coast Guard Cutter Moberly with the USS Alerton left the US Naval Base at Newport, R.I. to search the water with sonar. The U-853 desperately evaded the Americans and fled to deeper water, but the U-boat was no match for the two ships. Sonar found the submarine off Block Island, R.I., and sailors dropped their depth charges, as the U-boat continued to elude them. Hedgehog rockets combined with the depth

charges to finish the career of the U-853 and her crew. Though debris and diesel oil rose to the surface, the bombardment continued until May 6 when the Navy confirmed that the U-boat with her crew of 56 men had been destroyed. It was the last German submarine to be sunk in United States waters. No one knows why Helmuth Fromsdorf chose to die in a blaze of glory. Did he value the fatherland more than his own life? Or was he still trying to prove to himself he was worthy of command? Whatever the reason, he took many men to the afterlife with him. The United States government tended to hide or minimize attacks within its borders to avoid public fear and panic. This policy prompted Navy officials to describe the dead as victims of boiler explosions.

Since they were listed as “killed by accident,” the sailors were ineligible for U.S. Purple Hearts. The case was closed. Paul M. Lawton, a lawyer and naval historian studied the case, and he thought the dead sailors had been treated unjustly. After two years of extensive research, he and his helpers proved the naval officials were wrong and after more persuasive pressure, the U.S. Secretary of the Navy conceded the error and corrected the official records to show the crew men were “killed in action.” James Fahey, a military archivist helped by locating old military files and arranged for officials to present Purple Hearts to next of kin on the USS Salem. At last, justice was done for the men killed in Helmuth Fromsdorf’s blaze of glory.

News from the Extension Service

Legacy of Loess Say what you will, but the most interesting and dominant landform in all of Iowa is only found in the western border counties, namely the Loess Hills. Loess is wind-deposited dust that actually occurs to some degree whenever the wind blows on open land. In March and April when cropland is bare and we get strong winds sweeping across the land, dust is moved around and can pile up just like snow drifts. What happened here? Ice that was up to a mile thick slowly melted during the last glacial period and great volumes of meltwater had to go somewhere. Huge rivers carried the water from the ice away, the energy of the water carried ground up rock debris along. As the water moved, the flow varied and the rock debris was sorted into bigger stuff – sand and gravel, medium sized stuff, called silt and fines called clay. A relief map of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota shows the Missouri River, which formed as the primary meltwater outlet from northern glaciers, has a valley that significantly broadens around Sioux City. South of Sioux City, this broad valley allowed

the massive volumes of meltwater to spread out and slow down. When flowing water slows, it progressively loses the energy to carry first gravel and then sand, then silt and finally clay. Effectively, the flood plain was turned into a soil-particle sorting machine. While every flood plain does that, the Iowa and Nebraska Missouri River bottom is classic. Today sand lenses are remnants of a stream with fast water, and where the water spread out and stood during each cool winter when the ice to the north melted more slowly and the river level dropped, a vast plain of sorted fine clay was deposited. Those clayey deposits are today referred to by geologists as river back swamps, but locally we call them gumbo or other more choice words. During all the melt runoff there were frequent strong winds predominantly blowing from west to east that accessed the fresh and loose deposits left in the valley. Wind is able to pick up particles, especially the medium-and fine-sized ones, and clouds of dust blew, mostly moving to the east. At the edge of the valley, the slight rise caused the wind to lose energy and

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator drop the silt first, and slowly a ridge built up. Throughout the centuries, we wound up with this geological snow fence effect that today we call the Loess Hills. My definition of the Loess Hills includes the Missouri River bottom. Let’s look at just a few of the legacies we have from that geologic drama of glacial meltwater and strong winds on western Iowa. For one, the deposited silt largely originated from limestone rock. As much as 30 percent of the soil volume is lime, which means if you want to grow blueberries or azaleas, or other acid-needing plants, you have a problem. Also, loess is very uniform, and when wet those individual silt particles have trouble holding together. As you drive around Harrison and neighboring counties, road cuts through the loess

are nearly vertical, to keep them from getting soaked with rainfall. A sloped bare surface of loess saturates with water and loses strength, leading to dramatic erosion. Look no further than stream head gullies in the loess that can grow to over 100-feet deep. Add to it that the north-facing slopes have different summer exposure to the sun from south-facing slopes, with the southern exposure dryer, and you have different plant communities. Trees establish more readily on the north-facing slopes. These are at the core of the unique beauty that characterizes the hills and attracts tourists, hunters and scientists.

Neighbors Organic initative deadline March 4 Iowa farmers must apply by March 4 to receive financial assistance in fiscal year 2011 through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program Organic Initiative. This year nearly $1.4 million is available statewide for applying organic farming practices. In the last two years, Iowans received nearly $5 million through the organic initiative. Through this initiative, producers who transition to organic agriculture can receive special assistance for meeting their conservation goals. In addition, previously certified organic producers can receive EQIP assistance for applying new conservation practices to their operation to treat a natural resource concern. Under EQIP, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service helps farmers apply conservation practices to optimize environmental benefits on working agricultural lands. These practices include, but

are not limited to, cover crops, nutrient and pest management, prescribed grazing, residue and tillage management and seasonal high tunnel systems for crops. Applicants with certified organic operations must submit a copy of their current Organic System Plan to NRCS. Producers who apply for assistance to transition their operation to organic production will be required to submit a selfcertification letter stating the applicant agrees to develop and implement conservation practices consistent with an OSP. All organic initiative applicants must provide the name and contact information of the USDA-accredited certifying agent who certified the organic operation. Organic producers can receive up to $20,000 per year or $80,000 over six years through this initiative. To apply for an EQIP contract visit NRCS at your local USDA Service Center.

provided by Terry and Audrey Evans were a huge drawing for the group. They took in $230 for pictures taken. Next year Hayes will bring his laptop and use digital cards for printing while some other members take pictures which will speed up the process. Signs will be posted for cost of pictures and caution tape around the reindeer corral for everyone’s safety. It was requested that Jeanette write a receipt to Terry and Audrey Evans for their donated fee of bringing the reindeer. Santa Paws: Went well, but not as many attended this year. The group sent out 500 flyers with the school children in the LoMa school and also placed flyers around town. Next year this will take place the day after Shiverfest so people will know that is the schedule.

Kennel update: Larry has one opening right now. He and Gayle found two dumped kittens and brought them in and adopted them. Larry and Gayle adopted Petey and absorbed the cost of neutering. Larry is looking for a carport to be placed over his kennel. He would also like to add a kennel. Grant money received was for the purchase of kennels. Larry is looking for good prices to add one. Two weeks is the time frame to keep dogs before putting them up for adoption as they get dewormed when they are first brought in and then another in two weeks. Plus they receive a Parvo shot. LuAnn Helen said a grant of $3,000 had been applied for from the Iowa West Foundation and only $2,000 granted, but the Wubena Rand Foundation issued the other $1,000.

The possibility of a traveling clinic with Pawbuster was discussed. 28E Agreement: Kathy presented a sample agreement. The group will ask the cities what can be budgeted for the Humane Society. It would not be for animal control, just for a shelter and adoption facility.

Given the economic climate we’re in, you may one day be faced with a downsizing or otherwise forced to retire earlier than you had planned. But even if that happens, you can still maintain control of your financial future — if you make the right moves. Unfortunately, many of us are ill prepared for events such as forced early retirement. In 2009, more people filed for Social Security than any year in history, with a big increase in the number receiving reduced benefits because they filed before their full retirement age. And they paid a heavy price, too — 62-year-old workers who filed for benefits early lost about 25 percent of their monthly benefits over waiting until their “full” retirement age of 66, according to the Social Security Administration. Of course, if you are forced to take an early retirement, you, too, may need to tap into your Social Security earlier than you planned. But that’s just the beginning — you might also need to start withdrawals from your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, even though you had planned on leaving those accounts intact for a few more years. And that’s why you won’t want to wait until early

retirement is thrust upon you before taking action. While you’re still working, consider these steps: • Boost your contributions to retirement plans. Put as much as you can possibly afford into your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan. Every time your salary goes up, try to increase the amount you contribute to your retirement plan. Also, contribute regularly to your traditional or Roth IRA. • Be prepared to rebalance your portfolio. If you’re facing a forced early retirement, or even if you think it’s a possibility, you may want to rebalance your portfolio to provide more opportunities for income. Talk to your financial advisor about income strategies appropriate for your particular situation. • Build up cash accounts. Even during “normal” times, it’s a good idea to keep an emergency fund, in cash or other liquid vehicles, containing six to 12 months’ worth of living expenses. If you suspect a forced early retirement is heading your way, try to beef up your cash holdings as much as possible. • Repay any 401(k) loans. Once you’ve left your employer, you may be forced to repay a 401(k) loan within two

months — an obvious hardship during a stressful time. • Work part-time. Even if you were forced to retire from one job, it doesn’t mean you couldn’t find another. This might be the perfect time to take a part-time job in an area in which you’ve always wanted to work. • Get some help. By consulting with a professional financial advisor, you may find that you actually can afford to retire early. A financial advisor can help you develop those income and spending strategies that are appropriate for your situation. And the earlier you get this type of help, the more options you ultimately may have. You may not be able to avert an unwanted, early retirement, but by preparing for it, as far in advance as possible, you can improve your chances of maintaining the retirement lifestyle you’ve envisioned.

Early Access Program for parents and their children Early ACCESS is a partnership between families and young children, birth to age 3 and providers from the Department of Education, Public Health, Human Services and the Child Health Specialty Clinics. The purpose of the program is for family and staff to work together in identifying, coordinating and providing needed services and resources that help the family assist infants or toddlers to grow and develop. All services to the child are provided in the child’s natural environment including the home and other community settings where children of the same age without disabilities participate. Services required to be provided include: service coordination; screenings, evaluation and assessments; individualized family service plans; assistive technology; audiology; family training/counseling; health services; medical evaluations to determine eligibility; nursing; nutrition; occupational therapy; physical therapy; psychology; social work; special instruction; speech language therapy; vision;

transportation. Infants or toddlers are eligible if they are under the age of 3 or have a condition or disability that is known to have a high probability of later delays if early intervention services are not provided. They are also eligible if they are experiencing a 25 percent delay in one or more areas of growth or development. There are no costs to families for service coordination activities; evaluation and assessment activities to determine eligibility or identify the concerns, priorities and resources of the family or development and reviews of the individualized family service plan. The service coordinator works with the family to determine costs and payment arrangements of other needed services. Some services may have charges or sliding fee scales or may be provided at no cost. Costs are determined by a variety of factors that are individualized to each child and family.

Tami Dunham’s third grade class at Logan-Magnolia has been practicing singing the National Anthem since the second week of school. In social studies the first part of the year, they read about honoring people and Veterans Day and learned the words to the national anthem. Every day the class says the Pledge of Allegiance and then sings the “Star-Spangled Banner.” The class decided to perform the song at the Jan. 7 home basketball game between Logan-Magnolia and Boyer Valley, and dressed in red, white and blue for the occasion. Omaha’s KETV Channel 7 was even there to record their performance and aired it later that weekend during the evening news. Dunham said the event would not have been possible without the help of the administration, staff, parents and fellow co-workers. Submitted photo

and Mt. Rainer, Wash. One of her most memorable trips was when she took on Washington D.C. with her one-year old daughter, Phoebe. She looked forward to sharing more adventures with Phoebe. All agreed Jessie and Russ made a nice couple. She would help him enjoy life and he would help her become a woman. Jessie enjoyed shopping, Facebook and texting to keep in touch with friends and family. Her friends all noted that she was a very loyal and trusted friend. She always stood by their side no matter what. Above all Jessie loved to share time with her family. A cozy day with everyone curled up on the couch and a movie was a perfect day indeed. Through the entire sixmonth battle with cancer, Jessie kept her head up and looked to the future. She continued to wonder where Phoebe would go to college and what she would do. She continued to talk about trips and spending as much time with family as she could to the very end. Jessie was preceded in death by her grandmother, Doris Jensen. Survivors include her husband, Russell Methvin and daughter Phoebe, of Raeford, N.C.; father, James Clinkenbeard and his wife Evonne and sister, Rae and brother Bryce of Denison; mother, Barbara Clinkenbeard and sisters, Jaclene and Whitney Reimers of Council Bluffs; father-in-law, Ray Methvin and mother-in-law, Sandra Methvin of Loretta, Tenn.; grandfather Kenneth Clinkenbeard and grandmother Marilyn Clinkenbeard of Mondamin; grandfather Harold Jensen of Council Bluffs and many more family members and friends.

The public is invited to a FIRST LEGO League jamboree from 3 to 5:30 p.m., Jan. 26 at the Logan Community Center. The Harrison County Extension Service is conducting the program which is open to the public. Attendance is free and encouraged. FLL is an international competition designed to challenge youth to work collaboratively to solve challenges that address realworld problems. Each team of six to 10 youths works on a predetermined set of topical challenges under the mentorship of volunteer adults in the community. Each team prepares within four competitive areas that are judged at regional and state competitions. The first is an interview of the team by a panel of judges to measure teamwork. The second involves a LEGO-based robot that is designed and appropriately programmed to complete a set of tasks. The third area involves team research of a topic within the overall theme complete with a presentation to demonstrate both problem solving

and communication abilities, and finally, the designed robots enter competition to complete prescribed tasks. Eight teams from five Harrison County communities have worked since September honing their problem-solving skills to answer the challenge program. This year’s program is “Body Forward,” about biomedical engineering skills. There are seven “core” values that are keys throughout the program. They include: We share our experience with others; we display gracious professionalism; we do work to find solutions with guidance from mentors and coaches; what we discover is more important than what we win; we are a team; we honor the spirit of friendly competition and we have fun. This year, Harrison County FLL teams learned another value, namely adversity often leads to creativity. The December state-qualifying regional competition in Sioux City was cancelled because of a blizzard. In lieu of the qualifying, regional repre-

sentatives to the Iowa state competition in Ames Jan. 15 was accomplished by drawing lots and three local teams were drawn, two from Logan and one from Woodbine. In addition, because there were openings in the Nebraska state competition, the teams from West Harrison Community and a second team from Woodbine were selected and will travel to Ashland, Neb., in February. Because of the cancellation of the regional contest, the Extension office pushed to hold this local event to reward teams for their effort, but more importantly to provide a venue to display teams’ creative solutions to both sponsors and the public. Sponsors in Harrison County are, Bill Cunard of Culligan Water Conditioning, Missouri Valley; Logan Do It Best Hardware, Logan; Logan Kiwanis; Cogdill Farm Supply; Woodbine Kiwanis; Hoffman Agency, Dunlap and Missouri Valley Kiwanis.

Logan Post Office officials are asking customers to keep letter carriers safe by shoveling a path to their mailbox as soon as possible after it snows. “Keeping a path clear to your mailbox will go a long way toward keeping our letter carriers safe and ensuring mail delivery each day.” Logan letter carriers, who each make an average of more than 600 deliveries a day, will continue to do their best to deliver the mail, Chambers said, but when mailboxes and approaches are buried in snow and ice it can make it difficult for letter carriers to make deliveries safely. Unsafe conditions can delay or even prevent mail delivery. If access is not safe, mailboxes are blocked and streets are impassible, letter carriers must consider safety and accessibility first. They are instructed to refrain from delivering to locations they deem too hazardous, Chambers said. “We want to thank those customers who have cleared their walks, steps and approaches to mailboxes following each snow storm,” Chambers said.

HARRISON COUNTY SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS November 4, 2010 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. Visitor: Walter Utman Grover Avenue Larry and Nancy Meyer and Kent Beebe were present to discuss last week’s public hearing on vacating part of Grover Ave. described as: A roadway known as Grover Avenue beginning at point on the north right of way of US Highway 30 in Section 24-78-45; thence continuing northerly on Grover Avenue along the west line of said Section to a point 1300 feet south of the CL/CL intersection with 305th Street. Union Pacific is planning on adding another track and is requesting closing the railroad crossing on Grover Ave. According to UP representative, Mike Blackley, the railroad will go thru with this project and expect 60-70 trains a day, which would block the Grover Ave. crossing most of the time. Mr. Meyer will contact Mr. Blackley again to see if it would be possible to have a farm crossing at the location. Motion to table action until November 9 on a motion by King, second by Smith. Unanimous approval. Engineer’s Employment Contract Tom Stoner requested a oneyear extension of his current employment contract set to expire on 10/28/2012. Only salary and contract expiration date changed. Motion to approve by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. New expiration date will be 11/3/2013. Handwritten Warrant A handwritten warrant to US Bank in the amount of $1,606.04 was approved on a motion by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. Claims Claims, as presented, were approved for payment. With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned on a motion by King, second by Smith. Unanimous approval. ATTEST: Susan Bonham, Auditor Gaylord Pitt, Chairman November 9, 2010 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. Grover Avenue Larry Meyer and Dennis Osborn met with the Board regarding the vacation of a portion of Grover Avenue. Mr. Meyer said that he had spoken to Mike Blackley and keeping a farm crossing is not an option. The Board won’t vacate the County’s easement and crossing until at such time as the sub-grade is at final elevation for all new track locations through the Grover Avenue crossing. Motion to approve by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. General Election The General Election results were presented to the Board for canvassing. Abstracts and certificates were signed. Motion to approve by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. Mental Health Annual Report The annual report for Harrison, Shelby, Monona Counties for MH/MR/DD services for FY2010 was presented to the Board. Harrison County served 206 consumers. There were no appeals during the year and the waiting list for services that was enacted as of July 1, 2009 was discontinued as of July 1, 2010. The Board accepted the report as presented. Soldier Valley Annual Permits Assistant County Attorney, Ashley West, discussed Solider Valley’s annual permits with Harrison County REC and NIPCO. Both companies are refusing to sign the agreements for their in-ground lines that cross the drainage ditch. All other owners of lines have signed agreements. The Board told Ms. West to send another letter to both companies. Jewel Ave. Drainage Charlie Wisecup, George (Buck) Winther and John Tornkvist met with the Board to discuss drainage on Jewell Avenue. Mr. Wisecup said that there had been a road tube located just north of 2893 Jewell Avenue that had been nonfunctioning for a very long time. A few years ago, the landowner requested the road department to replace the tube and they did. However, now water is draining on to these gentlemen’s land. Mr. Tornkvist remembers having signed a petition against replacing the tube and thought the new tube was bigger than the replaced one. Mr. Stoner will review the situation and get back to everyone. With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned on a motion by Smith, second by King. Unanimous approval. ATTEST: Susan Bonham, Auditor Gaylord Pitt, Chairman November 18, 2010 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present except King. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Smith, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Visitor: Walter Utman Jail Over Time Hours Motion to approve by Smith, second by Pitt to approve overtime hours for Patty Hazen that were earned in 2009. Unanimous approval.

Mobile Home Abatement Taxes Motion to approve by Smith, second by Pitt to abate the taxes on a mobile home owned by Forrest and Elisabeth Love. Unanimous approval. Harrison County Fair John Straight stopped in to have the board endorse over a check from the Harrison County Community Foundation for the Fair Board. Fair Board will be using the money to air condition Grooms Hall. Also, looking into building a horse barn. Tax Sale Assignment Motion by Smith, second by Pitt

Motion to approve requests as presented was made by Smith, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Auditor Staffing Renee Hack presented information on behalf of Susan Bonham and Renee King on staffing. Hack informed the board that King has hired Heather Edney as a backup driver’s license employee beginning January 3, 2011. Bonham has agreed to pay Edney’s salary out of the Auditor’s budget for Edney to go to another county for training during the month of December. The board agreed with the hiring of Heather Edney. Solider Valley A letter from Mumm Law Firm to the Harrison County REC was approved on a motion by Smith, second by Pitt. The letter informed the Harrison County REC that if they did not verify locations and sign a permit with the District, the District would assume that they did not have any lines within the rightof-way of the District and that the District would not be held responsible for any unintentional damage. Approval for a petition with Genee Godden which was approved on September 9, 2010 was revised to state that all costs regarding the crossing would be borne by Ms. Godden. The original minutes stated that after the crossing was put in, the District would maintain the crossing thereafter. The District only maintains outlets for drainage not crossings for access. The change was approved on a motion by Smith, second by Pitt. Ms. Godden will be sent a letter. With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned until December 2.

Legals LOGAN CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS January 10, 2011 At 7:00 p.m., Mayor Fetter called the meeting to order. Those present were council members Clark, Johnson, Hartwig, Moss and Crum. Mayor Fetter asked if there were any additions or deletions to the agenda. There were none. Motion was made by Hartwig and seconded by Johnson to approve the agenda. 5 ayes. Motion was made by Moss and seconded by Crum to approve the consent agenda which consisted of approval of the 12-20-10 regular council meeting, set date of 1-24-11 for the next council meeting, approve claims register, treasurer report, department reports and no building permits. 5 ayes. Item 6 on the agenda was to discuss and possibly approve hiring a new Deputy Clerk. The personnel committee told the council that they interviewed four candidates and

were still undecided and will meet again after the council meeting to decide whom to offer the position to. They asked the council for permission to offer $12 an hour to one of the candidates. Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Hartwig to offer the position of deputy clerk to one of the candidates for a starting wage of $12 an hour. 5 ayes. Chief Smith spoke to the council about the purchase of a new police vehicle. At the last meeting the council received information on a police truck and it was more than what was budgeted. Therefore, the city council asked the chief to get information on a car. Chief Smith told the council he had a quote for a 2011 Crown Vic in the amount of $23,283. It will need additional equipment such as: strobe lights and a few other items that will total less than $2,000. This vehicle was right at the amount that was budgeted. Motion was made by Johnson

and seconded by Clark to approve the purchase of a 2011 Crown Victoria and the additional equipment from Woodhouse Ford. 5 ayes. The next item on the agenda was an update on land mobile radios for city vehicles and relay systems. The chief reported that his radios are all re-programmable and the company he spoke with said they would charge $60 an hour to re-program the department’s radios. The city clerk reported that the Utilities Superintendent will call Bonsall’s in Dunlap and make an appointment with them to check their radios and relays. The council agreed that it should be done so they would know what to purchase in this budget year. Chamber update: Chris Hartwig reported that the chamber extended the date to submit applicants for the Pride Awards to January 31. They added a teacher category and will only honor one student this year.

Citizens questions and comments: None Budget work session: The clerk and council started working on the budget. The clerk reported that most of the evaluations are completed and when she has all of them she will be able to get some numbers for the wages by the next council meeting.

After a week off because of inclement weather, the Lady Panthers traveled to Manning to play the Wolves of IKMManning. First quarter action shaped up in the Wolves’ favor as solid defense held Lo-Ma to only six points, well below the 11 points the Panthers have been averaging in first quarter play this season. IKM, led by Kaylee Blake, continued racking up the points in the second quarter and keeping the Panther’s offense contained. Going into the half, Lo-Ma found itself in a hole down 37-23. The third quarter was the same story as the Panthers had trouble penetrating the Wolves’ defense. Offensively, IKM was successful shooting deep, hitting several threepointers. The third quarter ended with the Panthers

Trent Buckner For the Herald-Observer The Lo-Ma boys earned a key win in the Western Valley Conference as they defeated the IKM-Manning Wolves 59-56 Jan. 14. Both teams worked the ball around the perimeter and after the first quarter the Wolves claimed a 15-12 lead. In the second quarter, Lo-Ma started to work the ball inside and outscored IKM-Manning 15-9 in eight minutes. At the half, the Panthers led 27-24. In the second half, Lo-Ma continued to get the ball inside, and increased their lead to 45-40 at the end of the third quarter. The Panthers then came out in the fourth quarter and looked to take control of the game as they pushed their advantage to 10 points with six minutes to go. The Wolves chipped away at Lo-Ma’s lead down to the last seconds. Levi Ettleman preserved the LoMa victory as he forced a final three-point basket from the Wolves to come up short. Ettleman scored 28 points, grabbed 20 rebounds while collecting four assists, two steals and two blocks. Zach Powley had 18 points (twothirds from the three-point arc), two assists and a steal. Gannon Cunard had six points and a rebound; Nate Fender, two points, five assists and three steals; Cole Davis, two points, six rebounds, three steals, one assist and a block; Paul Hutson, two points, four rebounds and two assists and Alex Cohrs, one point and a rebound. “What an exciting win for our kids and our program,”

play that resulted in a fast break by Karen Hutson, the Panthers took the lead 20-18 at the half. After half time, the Panthers came out determined to put some distance between them and the Bulldogs. Holding the Bulldogs scoreless for the first several minutes of the quarter, the Lady Panthers went on an 8-0 run. At the end of the third quarter, LoMa had the lead 28-24. The Panthers continued to build their lead during the fourth quarter. With 1:01 left in the game, Hutson drove down the court drawing a foul. At the line shooting two, Hutson sank both free throws to put Lo-Ma up 40-30. Good defensive rebounds from Kylee Loftus in the quarter helped the Panthers outdo the Bulldogs 42-30. “Riverside is a taller team,” coach Kevin Patterson said. “We did a good job adjusting tonight making our shots outside the paint.”

down 48-24. IKM did a good job in the fourth quarter keeping the Panthers off balance as the Wolves held the ball for the majority of the period. The Wolves put another 22 points on the board, compared to 11 by Lo-Ma. The game ended with Lo-Ma losing 76-45. One bright spot on the night was Carrie Charbonneau who came off the bench to score 13 points. Jan. 15, Lo-Ma would be on the road again this time making the trip to Oakland to play the Riverside Bulldogs. In the first quarter the Lady Panthers held the Bulldogs to only one point for the first five and a half minutes. The Bulldogs rallied and went on a seven-point run to end the quarter, but the Panthers held on to a 10-8 lead. The second quarter was a seesaw battle. With 1:04 left in the quarter, Courtney Oviatt drained a three-point shot to tie the game at 18 a piece. A minute later, on a good defensive

said coach Steve Nixon. “We did a great job of rebounding and withstood several key runs by the Wolves. Everyone that played contributed. It was a total team effort.” The Panthers headed to Oakland Jan. 15 for a tough, non-conference game against the Riverside Bulldogs. During the first half, the game went back and forth with Lo-Ma grabbing the lead 12-11 at the end of the first quarter and 26-21 at half. After the break, the Panthers did not seem quite as sharp on either end of the floor as the Bulldogs were able to take the lead 39-38 after three quarters. The lead continued to change hands during the fourth quarter and neither team could gain any breathing room until Riverside put themselves up three with only a few seconds remaining. A final threepoint try by Ettleman missed, and the Panthers fell 52-49. Lo-Ma’s biggest struggle was keeping Riverside off the offensive glass as the

Bulldogs had 17 offensive rebounds to only six for the Panthers. Nate Fender kept Lo-Ma in the game with a sensational shooting performance as went 8-for-14 from behind the three-point line and ended the game with 26 points, two assists and a steal. Ettleman had 10 points, 17 rebounds, five assists and four steals; Hutson, seven points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal; Davis, four points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks and Powley, two points, one rebound and four assists. “After the emotional win Friday night against IKMManning, we just did not come out with the same energy, focus or effort we needed to win,” Nixon said. “We were unable to get to the free throw line, we didn’t defend the three-point line and we refused to rebound. When we don’t do the little things it takes to win, this is what happens. Hopefully we can learn from this game and get back to playing good basketball.”
