Supervisors appoint boards at FCC mandates move to narrow banding by Jan. 1, 2013 first meeting Mary Darling

Big changes in the air for users of mobile radios Editor There are big changes coming for cities, counties, schools, law enforcement and anyone else who uses land mobile radios that use channels 150174 MHz and 421-512 MHz. A Federal Communications Commission order issued in 2004 requires all entities operating radio systems on these bandwidths to migrate to narrow banding. “The FCC is out of frequency,” said Harrison County Emergency Management Director Larry Oliver. “It’s not a huge problem in our area, but in cities like Chicago and New

York there is none to be had. A deadline of Jan. 1, 2013 has been set to change systems over. After this date all systems must have been converted either to 12.5 kHz bandwidth or to a technology that provides one voice channel per 12.5 kHz. What this means for Harrison County, the cities, schools, law enforcement and fire/rescue departments, is that all present equipment must be assessed to see if any can be reprogrammed to the new bandwidth or if it will be necessary to purchase new equipment. Whether cities and the county will

Mary Darling Editor Some of the best musicians in southwest Iowa showed the Phoenix area what is so great about the Midwest when the Southwest Iowa Honor Marching Band performed in the Fiesta Bowl parade and pre-game festivities at the Fiesta Bowl football game over the holidays. The band, formed every other year, was comprised this year of students from 30 school districts in southwest Iowa. Students in all southwest Iowa school districts are eligible to audition for the band. The first three trips were to Dallas, Texas, then eight to Phoenix, Ariz., one to Orlando, Fla., and this year again to Phoenix. Nate Simons, Logan-Magnolia’s band director, served as the head director of the SEE SWIHMB Page 2

Motion may delay trial in four deaths Andrew J. Nelson World-Herald News Service An attorney for the man accused in the crash that killed four motorcyclists said Jan. 3 that he expects his client’s trial, scheduled to begin Jan. 11, to be delayed because of a motion he has filed. Steve Lefler of Omaha,

one of the lawyers representing Andrew Schlichtemeier, has asked that the breath-alcohol test results and any statements that Schlichtemeier made to investigators be suppressed because Schlichtemeier “was not competent to voluntarily waive any of his rights,” according to the motion. The Iowa State Patrol

has said that Schlichtemeier was given and failed a breath test after the crash. He then consented to a blood test. Such motions are normal in cases involving allegations of drunken driving, said Robert Rigg, director of the criminal defense program at the Drake University Law School. “Are they typical

motions? Yes,” Rigg said. “Are they typically granted? No.” If such a motion were granted, it could dramatically affect the prosecution’s case but not necessarily ruin it, he said. “It depends on the other facts and evidence they SEE MOTION Page 2

BANDWIDTH: FCC Mandate SWIHMB: Performs in Phoenix FROM PAGE 1 have to invest in new equipment depends largely on when the equipment was purchased. If it was in the last six to eight years, most of the equipment is narrowband capable. They will only need to be reprogrammed. According to Oliver, in December 2010, Harrison County Communications began the process to secure narrowband channels. “Jan. 1, 2011, manufactures will no longer be allowed to produce equipment that does not meet narrowbanding requirements,” Oliver said. “New production must meet 6.25 kHz specifications. In the Spring of 2011, state communications will begin the transition of public safety channels in southwest Iowa and by the Spring of 2012, the state will complete the transition to include all state public safety channels. “Anyone that fails to comply with the Jan. 1, 2013 deadline will risk the loss of radio communications, substantial FCC fines and revocation of FCC

licenses,” Oliver said. Oliver is attending council meetings throughout the county to urge each city to assess its equipment and develop a strategy to meet narrowband deadlines to avoid cancellation of existing wideband FCC authorization. Oliver said that manufactures have been aware of the pending narrowband mandate since 1997 and most equipment purchased in the last seven years should be capable of changing to narrowband operation by reprogramming. Oliver said new or modified licenses will need to be obtained and a budget developed for the purchase of new equipment if needed. “This is an unfunded mandate from top to bottom,” Oliver said. “There is no federal, state or county funding. It’s all local.” According to Oliver costs associated with the transition will be variable and determined by the number of licenses (if any), the need to replace noncompliant equipment and reprogramming narrowband compliant equipment.

“In short, every entity will be different based upon their system,” Oliver said. It is the responsibility of the licensee to update frequencies and equipment to meet the guidelines. According to Oliver, manufactures have stated that there should not be a change in coverage. “This may or may not be true in Harrison County,” Oliver said. “Harrison Besides having band members all around the edges of the flag, a large number are Photo: Mary Darling County has unique geogra- required to be positioned under the field-sized flag. phy, lots of big hills, and in Heather Park from Woodbine; tent can seat thousands at areas that have question- FROM PAGE 1 and Cortney Cooper, Trey once.

MOTION: May delay start of trial have available to them,” Rigg said. When reached Lefler would not elaborate on the motion, which he filed along with attorney Bill

Bracker of Council Bluffs, who also represents Schlichtemeier. “We think it speaks for itself,” Lefler said. Geoff Greenwood,

spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, which is prosecuting the case, said the office would respond in court. Lefler said he expects a

hearing on the motion to take place Jan. 17, meaning that the trial would have to be postponed to accommodate the motion. A possible new trial date is Feb. 9 he said. The trail date has already been changed once. The trial was initially

scheduled to start Dec. 7 but was rescheduled for Jan. 11 because Lefler said he needed more time to sort through the evidence. Such continuances are routine. Suzie Bock, sister of Jay Bock, one of the motorcyclists who died, said she

wasn’t surprised. “I think it’s what his attorney has to do,” she said. “I guess, for me, I’d rather have his attorney do what his attorney should do for him because I don’t want any appeals….I want it to be done and over when it’s done and over.”

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.

The snow is driving dad nuts Before dad had dementia, the winter months were spent on projects around the house – refinishing cabinets, building shelves or just quality time tinkering in his workshop. He’ll watch TV if there’s a baseball game on, John Wayne movie or reruns of Sanford and Son – otherwise the radio is on and recently he’s just been sitting at the table watching for birds. Trying to break up the monotony of his days I stop by in the morning, at lunch and again after work. My boyfriend also drops by and asked one of his employees to come by frequently to keep dad company. Among all of us, dad has someone there off and on for most of the day. As soon as it gets dark he calls to let me know that the dog is OK and as soon as the snow melts he’s moving south because he hasn’t seen anyone for days. Dad sends me mixed signals about what he wants. When he’s focused and thinking clearly there’s no doubt that he wants to live in his house and doesn’t want to be bothered by too many visitors. He’s always been a loner and preferred his own company to others’. Dementia robbed dad’s ability to plan projects and his tools lay unused as he struggles with remembering what to do with them. He’s begun to tear things apart but doesn’t know how to put them back together. If I don’t find something for him to do soon, I’m afraid he’s going to rip through the house like a tornado. I’ve tried jigsaw puzzles in the past and I’m not sure if it’s too hard or too boring but the only time they were worked on were when we did them together. Building forts with Lincoln Logs lasted a day and he couldn’t follow the instructions for putting model cars together. He likes to cut up his empty snack boxes but it doesn’t take long to get through the few I have each day. As a last resort I showed up with coloring books and found dad intently focused on hundreds of bolts, nuts, washers and screws all mixed up in a box. Individual boxes were lined up and he was sorting them one by one. “I’ve got a job to do,” he said without looking up. “Don’t you need to be at work?” I never thought I would see the day when I’d be relieved to have dad tell me to leave. I called to thank the only guy I know with that much hardware who would know that a man would rather sort through a box of bolts than a coloring book. My boyfriend employed dad to sort through boxes and boxes of hardware and he gladly accepted. “It’s a job,” dad said with a smile. “But somebody has to do it.”

I know what musicians are like It was probably to Harrison County teachers’ good fortune that Kirk Pengilly and his five friends did not attend their classes. The six boys would have it well into any talented and gifted program a school offered, but they were smarter than most of their teachers and they knew it. They were well mannered and weren’t stereotypical troublemakers, but unlike most school kids, the six worked in tandem. If one crossed the line, they all did. It was understandable. Three of the boys were brothers and the others might as well have been their siblings. They were all as close as brothers and they had only one passion – music. Kirk was born in Kew, Victoria in 1958. When he was 8, his family relocated to an isolated home in the middle of a national forest outside of Sidney, Australia. Their house was near a cave and overlooked the deepest fjord in the southern hemisphere. With no electricity or close neighbors, Kirk spent his days hiking and teaching himself to play the guitar. He carried his interest to high school where he met and became best friends with Tim Farris and his two brothers. They all liked music and it became a strong bond which drew them together. Michael Hutchence, a fellow stu-

dent, knew the Farris brothers but they didn’t hang out together until the day Tim Farris broke up a fight between Michael and another student. From that day on, they also became best friends. The six boys began to play music together and organized several garage bands. At first, Michael and Kirk shared the singing, but since Michael couldn’t play an instrument they decided he should be the vocal front man. This also gave Kirk time to indulge in his latest passion, the saxophone. Near high school graduation, the Farris brothers’ parents moved them to Perth on the west side of the continent, but the friends kept in touch. After graduation, Kirk and Michael drove across the continent in Kirk’s red panel van. They stopped to cook vegetables Kirk had stored in Tupperware containers as bewildered kangaroos looked on. Kirk also pasted Christian posters on the van to deter curious police from stopping them. After graduation, the friends endured a trial by fire. They and the red van traveled across Australia looking for work. The group played at church socials, high school graduations and wedding parties 365 days a year. They were eager to improve themselves and discovered they

could write their own songs. Kirk became the band’s unofficial utility man because his talents were so versatile. He had also kept a diary since high school and became the band’s archivist in later years. He and Michael also co-wrote many of the band’s songs. Eventually, the band, which decided to call itself INXS, got a record contract. After a few more years of hard work, they became world stars. Some critics called them Australia’s best musical export. Unfortunately as the 1980’s became the 1990’s, drugs and alcohol intruded, but the band was convinced their bad habits were under control. Michael Hutchence had battled and beaten a cocaine habit and his life seemed to be on the upswing. He was engaged to be married and though his band mates had worried about Michael, his apparent suicide devastated them. Their “brother” was as much a linchpin as the others, and the group

entered a downward spiral much like the depression which the NASCAR Hendrick Motor Sports family endured after 10 of their members died in a plane crash. They straightened their lives and while on hiatus, they engaged in individual projects and charities for which they won awards. In 2005, the band sold a reality based show Rock Star INXS to select a new leader for their band. Tim and Kirk traveled the world to all of the auditions whose finalists competed on CBS television. It was the first television show to have worldwide voting, and it earned the network a small fortune. J.D. Fortune, a Canadian Elvis impersonator won and wrote a hit for INXS’s first album in years. During that time, Andrew Farris’ daughter announced she was going to date a musician. “Oh, no,” whined Andrew. “I know what musicians are like.”

News from the Extension Service

New regulations for firewood On Jan. 1, a new regulation came into effect in Iowa requiring anyone who sells firewood in Iowa to have it labeled for county and state of origin. Now what may seem to be an onerous example of governmental intrusion is actually an effort to limit or stop the spread of several bad, and some very bad tree pests. Emerald ash borer is one inspect that can readily infect and kill ash trees. The adult is a green beetle that finds a mate and then deposits eggs in ash tree branches, preferring, but not limited to trees under stress. The larvae that hatch bore under the bark, destroying vascular tissue and damaging the ability of the tree to transmit water and nutrients internally. In two to four years, the tree typically dies. Nearly all my extension friends in counties have had callers with some level of concern about the EAB with the certain thought that a tree of theirs was infested and thereby doomed. Here is the fact: There is a SPOT in Iowa where EAB has been confirmed to date, and it is from a tree on an island in the Mississippi River in

Northeastern Allamakee County. That is one spot, and so far, nowhere else. In 2010, the Iowa DNR visually surveyed ash trees for signs and symptoms of emerald ash borer. They chose trees in high-risk areas (sawmills and heavily used campgrounds). For the year, 235 campgrounds and 29 sawmills were surveyed in 55 counties. All told, 1,267 Iowa ash trees were inspected and all were negative for emerald ash borer. Funding for this project came from U.S. Forest Service grants. (There was on site surveyed in Harrison County.) On their own, EAB adult beetles can only move a few miles on their own each year. So at least for now, our ash problems are not likely the EAB. But, the beetles can easily be carried into new areas in harvested logs. So, a bundle of firewood that contains beetles and serve as an introduction source to new areas in the time it takes to drive across the state. Like the cartoon character Pogo said, “We have met the enemy and he is us!” And if you choose to simply avoid ash logs, can you really identify cut logs to tree species?

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator Plus, there are other problems with other species that are also concerns. Although the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources staff will be checking firewood bundles at retail sales outlets for this labeling, the bigger issue is to remind both you and for you to remind your neighbors to be careful with and avoid transporting of logs from place to place. Furthermore, there are other pests of other tree species that are also on the horizon. A disease called thousand canker can potentially devastate black walnut Currently, it has not been found in Iowa, but all it would take is for some walnut logs that carry the walnut stem beetle that transmits the thousand canker disease into an area for us to

imperil our walnut stands. Oh yes, the labeling details. If you want to buy firewood in Iowa, the rule mandates that the seller provide a label that includes the identity of the wood, whether all one species or mixed (i.e. 50 percent ash, 50 percent oak), the net quantity in cubic feet or cubic meters (a cord is 128 cubic feet), the name and address of the manufacturer or distributor, the unit price at point of sale, the county and state where the wood was harvested. But remember the bigger message: do not carry firewood from place to place, and try to burn it as soon as possible. For additional information contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at ropope@iastate.edu or 644-2105.

Getting engaged is just the beginning .... Are you one of the thousands of couples who got engaged over the holidays? This is the time for you and your soon-to-be to get everything you ever wanted. The time to start from scratch, to upgrade, expand and replace. Here are some additional tips to make wedding

planning a breeze: • Plan ahead: Start a bridal registry as soon as you say “yes.” This way you will be prepared for your engagement party and bridal shower, as well as your wedding. Periodically update your registry by adding more products if you need to, even after the

wedding. Be kind to procrastinators. • Don’t be shy: Register for gifts in a range of prices and categories. This will give guests and group givers lots of options to choose from. • Look back and plan ahead: Discuss your background and personal preferences beforehand. It’s also important to consider your future. Consider things like how often you’ll enter-

tain and how much you will be cooking. • Visit a store: It’s in your best interest to visit a store and schedule an appointment with an expert consultant. Touch the towels, heft the flatware, see everything in person! • Do the math: Experts advise registering for two to three items times the number of guests you plan to have. Close friends and family will rely on your

registry for special events leading up to the wedding — such as engagement parties, bridal showers and holidays! Your guests will appreciate having lots of choices when they shop for you. Be sure to refresh your list regularly as gifts get purchased. • Register now, because you won’t buy it later: You may think you will ... but you won’t. Now is the time to let others get you the

Your friends and family might even get together to purchase a higher priced “group gift.” • Remember the rule of three: When it comes to setting your table, if you choose bold patterns for your china and flatware, pick a more simple style of glassware. Prefer intricate stemware? Pair it with simpler patterns of china and flatware.

Bringing the Holy Land to Harrison County Nikki Davis Woodbine Twiner Lloyd and Rilla Soetmelk of Logan believe in God. They believe in Jesus. And they wanted to see where Jesus walked and taught. The trip was Rilla’s retirement dream – and she firmly believes God had a hand in making it possible. Lloyd was discussing a possible vacation for him and his wife during a men’s breakfast with Dr. Stan Udd, a professor at Grace University where he teaches Greek/Hebrew classes. Udd is the pastor at the New Life Evangelical Free Church in Logan. Udd was taking a group of students to Jerusalem University College for a class in Holy Land studies. The timing

couldn’t have been better for the Soetmelk’s, as Udd extended this opportunity to tour the sights and learn with the students on their journey. The Soetmelk’s couldn’t pass up this offer and made the decision to go. The group flew out of Omaha, Neb., on Jan. 3, 2010 and stayed in the Holy Land for 24 days. “The trip was just amazing,” Rilla said, as she recalled their religious journey. “I would live there if I could bring our families.” The journey began as soon as lodging was assigned. Udd had been to Jerusalem several times and was acquainted with the historical landmarks and wanted to see Jerusalem light up at night. The students were treated to a walk through the Old City

and the first stop was at the Holy Sepulcher. Then to the traditional site of the Last Supper, Pentecost and the first Church, now known and rebuilt as Zion Mother of All Churches. The day journey was well worth the up and down long walks, but Rilla couldn’t help be slightly disappointed. “It looked too new,” she replied. “Everything was reconstructed. I was expecting to see an upper room with wooden beams, not stone on walls, floor and ceiling.” The reason for the newness had an explanation. The ruins themselves have been destroyed and rebuilt or built upon several times. Rilla explained the Dome of the Rock which is now owned by Muslims is the real site of Solomon’s temple, the actual ruins resting 20 feet below the

Dome. Following the first day, they were treated to other sights such as the steps of the Temple Mount where Jesus would have taught. The Mount of Olives was on one side and the City of David below them. They saw the Pools of Siloam, Herodian, Jericho, The Bedouin (Nomads) sites, Sorek Valley, Be’er Shena (Abraham’s home in Biblical Negan), The Wilderness of Zin, the Dead Sea, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee and much more. One touching sight for Lloyd and Rilla was the site of the Wailing Wall or the Western Wall. “It’s part of the original wall,” Rilla said. “As I think back, there was a touch of strangeness happening at the Religious Wall. There

were guards on the wall going up to the temple mount or Dome of the Rock,” Lloyd said. Then, in Jordan, it was Petra that had the Soetmelk’s complete attention. Carvings and caves with swirls of red and blue sandstone were everywhere. The path they followed down through the rocks or canyon was sometimes only 12 to 14 feet wide. Temples and gods carved into the sandstone were an architectural delight. But a hint of sadness followed the Petra Stop with a single thought. “Jordan is not doing anything to preserve the sandstone carvings,” Lloyd said. “So they are slowly wearing away.” And on another portion of their trip, Rilla couldn’t hide her disappointment. It was Bethlehem, the birth place of

Jesus. “It doesn’t look like it at all,” Rilla said. “You would have pictured the manger and stable.” Instead it is located in a Greek Orthodox Church in a Muslim community. Upon the sight believed to be where Jesus was born is an ornate hole in the floor of the basement which is on bedrock where the manger stood. “Bethlehem was too commercialized,” Lloyd said. “It did not depict the Christmas story we have learned.” The couple will be giving a presentation and sharing a small portion of their photos from their Holy Land tour from 2-4 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Logan Community Center and is inviting anyone interested to attend.

Mikels was also captain during his 2006 season in high school. As a Panther, Mikels earned first team all-district and first team all-state honors. “Daniel always played with great effort. His positive attitude and work ethic allowed him to be very successful in high school and college,” said Lo-Ma coach Matt Straight. Jay Anderson, his coach at Buena Vista said, “I have been at BVU for 14 years, and Daniel is one of the hardest working studentathletes we have had.

The Lady Panthers returned to the court this week for another match up against the Woodbine Tigers on Jan. 4. Lo-Ma came out early in the first quarter scoring 20 points and put defensive pressure on the Tigers, holding Woodbine to only six points. The Panthers continued to dominate the floor as Lo-Ma scored 19 points in the second quarter, heading into the locker room with a 39-13 lead. Kylee Loftus knocked the wind out of Woodbine early in the third quarter as Loftus re-bounded two missed Tiger shots that resulted in five Panther points in a matter of seconds. The unrelenting Panthers added an additional 19 points to the scoreboard to end the third period leading 58-21. Coach Kevin Patterson substituted several players in and out during the final eight minutes of the game as the Panthers wrapped this one up 70-30. Loftus had 12 rebounds on the night and Lo-Ma grabbed 19 steals. On offense, the Panthers had eight players contribute in scoring, including three who scored in double digits. Karen Hutson led the night with 30 points, Loftus put up 15 and Alex Gochenour scored 10. Rounding out the scoring was Courtney Oviatt and Macy Cohrs with four points each. Kia Fender put up three and Chelsea Lautrup and Carrie Charbonneau added two apiece. “Our practices were real productive over the break and it showed in the game tonight,” Patterson said. The Panthers ended the week hosting the Boyer Valley Bulldogs Jan. 7. Playing to a packed house, Boyer Valley came out with a three-point shot to start the

Turnovers would mark the second quarter as the Bulldogs tied the game at the 5:20 mark. It was over a minute before a score as Fender made a free throw to give the Panthers a one-point lead. Gochenour answered a Bulldog basket with one of her own to put the Panthers up 17-16 with two minutes left in the half. Play again went back and forth with each team sinking a bucket, respectively. The first half ended with Lo-Ma leading 20-18. When play resumed in the third quarter, it looked like two totally different teams took the floor. Numerous turnovers and missed baskets marked a very emotionally charged quarter. Almost six minuets of the quarter expired and Lo-Ma could only muster two points as the Bulldogs tied the game at 22. Loftus scored a two-point bucket at the 1:15 mark, and

Gochenour put up two points for Lo-Ma as time expired, giving the Panthers a 26-24 lead at the end of the third quarter. Almost three minutes went by in the fourth quarter without any scoring. Hutson hit a twopoint bucket and drew a foul at the five minute mark. Siking the free-throw, Hutson put Lo-Ma up by five. As has been the norm this season, Lo-Ma’s opponent simply could not match the Panther’s talent in the fourth quarter. The Lady Panthers held Boyer Valley to four points in the quarter as LoMa seemed to score at will in the last few minutes of play. Lo-Ma won the battle 37-28 to improve to 10 wins and one loss on the season. Loftus led the Panthers in scoring with 10 points on the night. Hutson and Gochenour put up nine and eight points each. Oviatt scored four points, Fender three, Cohrs put in two and Ashley Bradshaw sank a free throw.

Mary Darling Editor Lo-Ma picked up eight pins and one technical fall, a major decision and two forfeits in a 68-8 match with Coon Rapids-Bayard Jan. 6. Ridge Meeker and Quinton Doiel both pinned state ranked wrestlers, said head coach Kent Kersten. “That’s very impressive to pin quality wrestlers like that,” Kersten said. Lo-Ma wrestlers pinning their opponents were, Meeker, Doiel, Dillon Lorentzen, Eric Brosnahan, Nolan Oviatt, Grant Whisney, Dillon Miller and Marrick Loftus. Chris Bridgeford won by technical fall, Zach Hatcher won a major decision and Travis Jones and Evan Mikels won by forfeit. In it’s first ever dual meet with Carroll, Lo-Ma picked up a 67-10 win. “The Panthers picked up 10 pins and one major decision against the Tigers,” Kersten said. “Our wrestlers did a great job in this dual only losing two matches against Carroll.”

Earning pins were, Meeker, Doiel, Lorentzen, Brosnahan, Hatcher, Oviatt, Whisney, Miller, Jones and Bridgeford. Evan

Mikels won a major decision and Logan Melby won a decision over his opponent. Reynek picked up a forfeit.

With wins over Woodbine and Boyer Valley over the past week, the Logan-Magnolias boys basketball team improved its record to 4-0 in the Western Valley South Conference and 7-2 overall. Jan. 4, Lo-Ma traveled to Woodbine to face the Tigers in their first game after the holiday break. In the first quarter, both teams came out very sluggish with the Panthers claiming an 8-6 lead. The offenses for both teams found a little more room to operate during the second quarter and the score at the half was tied at 23. After the halftime break, Lo-Ma took control at both ends of the court and outscored the Tigers, 18-9 in the third quarter. At the final buzzer, the Panthers won 53-43. Levi Ettleman turned in another solid performance as he finished the night with 15 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists. Others turning in good efforts for Lo-Ma were Paul Hutson, 10 points and eight rebounds; Nate Fender, nine points and four assists; Brennan Azinger, nine points and two steals; and Zach Powley, six points and two assists. Rounding out the Panther scoring was Alex Cohrs and Gannon Cunard with one basket each. “I felt like I did a poor job of preparing our team to play tonight,” said coach Steve Nixon. “Our practices over Christmas break were poor, and it carried over to the game tonight as our

energy level was not there. We didn’t communicate on defense and we missed many point blank shots and lay-ups that we normally make. There’s lots to improve on and I’m looking forward to practice this week.” In their second game of the week, the Panthers hosted the Boyer Valley Bulldogs Jan. 8 in a key Western Valley Conference game. To start, each team worked hard at both ends of the floor as Boyer Valley took a 14-12 lead after the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Panthers caught fire on offense as they put 24 points on the scoreboard to take a 36-29 advantage into the halftime break. After the half, Lo-Ma was able to stretch its lead to ten points on a couple occasions, but the Bulldogs did not go away as their outside shooting kept them in the game. A three-point basket by Boyer Valley from just over half court as time expired in the third quarter, cut the Panther lead to 3735, and the battle was on. In the fourth quarter, the game seesawed back and forth with momentum swaying between both teams. In the final minute, Boyer Valley took a twopoint lead and the Panthers looked to Ettleman to tie the game. Ettleman was able to put the ball in the basket off of his own miss and with one last missed heave by the Bulldogs, the game headed into overtime. In overtime, the two teams continued to battle back and forth, but the Panthers took control of the game as they were able

Ettleman led the Lo-Ma attack on the night as he finished with 33 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and four blocks. Other Panthers contributing were Azinger, 12 points (2/3 from the three-point line) and seven rebounds; Powley, seven points, three rebounds and a steal; Hutson, seven points, 15 rebounds, two assists and a steal; Cunard, four points; Nate Fender, three points, eight assists and three steals; Cole Davis, two points, three rebounds and three steals; Caden McDonald, two points and Cohrs, one rebound and one assist. “This was just a great high school basketball game that had a little bit of everything in it,” said Nixon. “Big shots, several lead changes, timely steals and a charged up atmosphere. We feel very fortunate to have won this game against a very good Boyer Valley team. In the end, I was proud of the toughness and effort that my kids showed. I couldn’t be more proud of them. They deserved this win.”
