The Logan City Council took a field trip to the lagoons during the meeting Sept. 8, to look over the finished Community Development Block Grant project. The goal of the project had been to repair damage at the lagoon due to the city receiving 16.63 inches of rain during a three-month period in 2008 and also to minimize damage from happening in the future. That storm water had pooled next to the lagoon and began lapping against the lagoon cell causing reduced cell stability. The city received a $245,000 CDBG grant for the project in 2009 and began the project in April of 2010. The 15-inches of rain in June delayed the project, but it was completed Sept. 8. The council gave United Country Loess Hills Realty and Auction permission to close the south half of North Third Avenue between Sixth and Seventh Streets for an auction on Sept. 12. The council approved the resolution regarding the city street financial report, a change order for M.E. Collins for an additional $1,289, and a pay request from M.E. Collins

From the Front

SHELTON: 52 year career FROM PAGE 1 said. He started his career in September of 1959, right out of Modale high school and was brought on as a rodman on the survey crew. With the exception of one year, Shelton has been at home at the road department ever since. When he was just starting, Shelton split his time between the road department, the theatre in Logan and as a lifeguard at the Logan swimming pool. Shelton said he took a year off from the job at the road department because he was doing pretty well with the other two jobs. “Between the movie theatre job and the swimming pool job, I could make as much as I made at the road department,” Shelton said. “Bill Hornbeck kept after me to come back to work though. I couldn’t afford to go back to college anyway, so I came to work for them and they were pretty busy so I got right to work on 335th Street which is F-56 east of Beebeetown.” He was eventually promoted to survey party chief when Hornbeck was promoted to assistant engineer. At that time, T.E. Martin was the county engineer. “We had no county pavements at that time,” Shelton said. “I got to work on every county pavement that was built back then.” That included the county’s first paved road, Modale to 183-F50-prior to Interstate 29 being built. “It was the beginning of the system we have now.” Shelton then worked for

Bud Thomas, who had been the county engineer in the 1940’s and came back in 1962. During the 1980’s Shelton worked for several engineers including Wendell Fokkerts, Truman Langager and Bill Cook. In 1985, Shelton became the assistant to county engineer Tom Stoner, another long-standing department employee. Shelton had words of praise for his boss when a difficult time struck in his life. Shelton began going blind in 1989 following a stroke in his optic nerve at the age of 46. Stoner had a special keyboard and computer screen installed for Shelton in his office that allowed him to keep working. “By the time it got me completely, it took a few years,” he said. “It was a very traumatic time for me. The biggest thing was not being able to drive. I had worked so hard to get where I was and it looked like it was all going to get away from me. Sometimes you just have to live through things and move on.” Shelton said what kept him at work was that he loved his job. “I never did not like it,” he said. “It changed over the years. I spent 30 years outside and then the last 20 inside since I went blind. My job evolved into one I could do and still be productive.” Shelton also credits the people of the county with keeping him going. “I dealt with a lot of

calls every day. Last winter it was almost non-stop of course, some happy, some not. That’s just part of the job and I tried to be part of the solution and not part of the problem,” Shelton said. He will miss that interaction with the public as well as the employees at the road department. He wanted to also thank the people of Logan. “The merchants, clerks and citizens,” he said. “It’s been my ritual for the past couple of years to take a walk at noon and people will come out of their homes and warn me if tree limbs, vehicles etc. are in the way. Once on main street, Ron the barber came out and told me not to come across the street until he knew it was safe. I really appreciate that and that everyone always says hi.” According to Stoner, the department will miss having Shelton on board. “It is widely believed that no one in an organization is irreplaceable. That may be true; but John Shelton’s retirement will certainly test that belief,” Stoner said. Shelton is looking forward to working on his acreage with his wife, Darlene who retired three years ago. “We live between Mondamin and Pisgah and there’s lots of things to do,” he said. “I’ve got a big yard that needs mowed, a big garden and we want to enjoy the grandkids and do some traveling.” John Beaudoin contributed to this article.

LAND DONATION: HCHS FROM PAGE 1 guardian angel.” Kramer said she had purchased the property when she was younger and had plans to build on it one day, but never did. “She said she saw us around and thought it might work,” Dickinson said. “We are currently in the process of attempting to secure funding to develop the land to house the Harrison County Humane Society,” said board member Larry Hayes. “This process will take some time but we’re confident we can get it done.” Hayes said initially they hope to have a state of the art kennel facility that will house several dogs and cats, a meeting room, office space and a pet interaction area for prospective families looking to adopt. They are also looking at installing an outside area in the form of a trail where people can walk pets or spend time in the Loess

Hills with their pets. They just completed the legal transfer of the proeprty with the help of attorney Judson Frisk who donated his services. “I guess the next step is to get the land surveyed,” Dickinson said. “Then get local people to bid on dirt work.” According to Dickinson, the group would much rather take things slow and get it right then jump in all at once. They are applying for grants for funds, including one from the Harrison County Endowment Fund requesting money for doghouses, portable kennels and flooring. Grant writers are Charlotte LeFeber, Julie Witte, LuAnn Kahle and Jon McElderry. The group presently has an inspected kennel that will hold two dogs along with four foster homes. “Every animal has to be there two weeks now and dogs get a parvo shot right away,” Dickinson said. “Before they are adopted all must have their shots

and be spayed or neutered.” They are presently charging a $50 adoption fee which is recycled back into shots for additional animals that will be held at the kennel. “It’s a very small amount of dogs we can take in right now,” Dickinson said. “But it helps.” They are always looking for more people willing to foster animals. If you would be interested in joining the group or fostering a dog or cat you can check out the Web site at or call Dickinson at 402-7407921 or Larry Hayes at 712-216-1206. “We have open arms to anyone that wants to join our group,” Dickinson said. “It’s always exciting to get new ideas.” They meet at 7 p.m., the second Thursday of every month at the Logan Community Center. Their next big event will be at Apple Fest Sept. 25 in Woodbine, where they will host a pet fashion show.

GET A GRIP: Workshop at Lo-Ma FROM PAGE 1 programs for conventions, conferences, schools and universities nationwide. He is an author, former schoolteacher, college instructor, coach and television talk show host. Students from Griswold, Missouri Valley, West Harrison and Woodbine

took part in the program which is driven by the principles of community, respect, choices and accountability. According to Healey, the program is dedicated to leadership development and creative prevention strategies and provides tools and resources needed to reduce the number of

teen and young adult alcohol-related traffic incidents. Lo-Ma students who are members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, and attended the workshop, will be planning an awareness campaign on the topic of teenage drinking/driving/texting and road rage.

COUNCIL: Tours lagoon project FROM PAGE 1 letter in the spring and didn’t comply, and more than 30 days to property owners that received their first letter this fall. They have until Oct.1 to comply with the request. According to Fliehe, the city will need to line up someone to come and trim the trees of residents that don’t comply. The city will send them a bill and if they

don’t pay it, the amount will be assessed to their property taxes. Chief Smith also discussed the need for residents to have their house numbers in view on their homes. There have been instances with fire and rescue that house numbers could not be found, so it is important to have visible address numbers on homes, he said. They will scan the town and contact

residents who need house numbers. Building permits were approved for Lane Collins, 218 N. Linn Ave., replace deck with a 10-foot by 12foot deck; Jeff Brown, 604 N.

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.

His ears really do hang low Dad’s new furry friend has a bit more energy than dad is used to dealing with. Agile and younger, the dog we adopted from the animal shelter has been giving dad a run for his money – literally. By the time his 12-year-old best friend passed away they had been practicing a routine that dad is having a hard time giving up. Most of their days were spent eating chocolate chip cookies and long walks were out of the question with the “fattest dog on earth” on the other end of the leash. I know that he missed his old friend terribly but thank goodness the “new” dog is keeping him occupied. For an entire week, dad would call me early in the morning. I could tell by his voice that he had just woke up and found the dog in bed with him. “What am I supposed to do about this dog, who’s in my bed, staring at me?” I would reassure him that the best thing to do was to take him into the backyard for a potty break and then the days’ agenda would be up to them. Dad refers to him as just “dog” even though I’ve tried to convince him that we could call his new friend Riley after the dog that just passed away. Thinking that I didn’t like him calling him “dog” he began calling him “young man.” Fortunately the dog will answer to anything and is just happy to have a home. As the days pass I can see dad slowly take ownership for the 4-year-old beagle who insists he is going to be a companion to dad, whether he wants it or not. Luckily, this dog isn’t a sweet eater so the chocolate chip cookies lay untouched next to the bowl of dog food. It’s fun to watch as dad picks up the leash from the table and the dog begins to circle around the living room excited to go out for a walk. Dad may not circle the front room but I know that he is just as excited to have someone who enjoys the outside as much as he does. Frequently when I stop by they are sitting on the front porch after a long walk. Sometimes the dog will be in dad’s lap, licking him in the face and I cherish the smiles of dad’s shining face with his new best friend. It has come down to only one lingering complaint that dad has with the “young man” a/k/a dog. Dad convinced himself that he must have come from another country because he has such “big flappers” – referring to his ears. Finally I bookmarked the page in the encyclopedia with a photo of a beagle, hoping he would make the connection. Several days later he announced that he had some exciting news. “He really is somebody special,” dad said pointing to the picture in the encyclopedia. He mentioned changing the dog’s name to “star.”

What couldn’t be done - Part 3 Marc and his band had survived yet another disaster after band mate Steve Took, who was more talented than he, spiraled out on a drug habit. Everyone is good at something and so far Marc’s talent was failure. No one in his right mind would follow a dream after such a punishing series of setbacks. But Marc wasn’t anyone. Something would turn up. There was always a bright spot and this time it was the Turtles. Marc and his band had opened for the Turtles several times in 1969 when they were at their peak. They became friends and the friendship proved beneficial to Marc. The British tabloids reported T Rex had suffered an early extinction during the tour. They reasoned with Steve gone, Marc could not carry on alone. However, they did not know Marc who was another Wiley Coyote. He advertised for a drummer, but got little response – until Mickey Finn a painter, appeared. He was less talented than Steve Took, but Marc fell in love with his 650cc Triumph motorcycle and his good looks. Both were obsessed with UFO’s and 1950’s rock and roll. They could jam together for hours. On that basis, Mickey got the job.

Unfortunately, jobs for the group were hard to come by, because Steve Took had been the band’s major attraction. Marc thought Mickey looked like Steve and if he let his beard grow out, no one would know the difference. John Peel once again came to the rescue. He had Marc and Mickey appear on the show, “Top Gear,” and it was the first time a television audience saw Mickey and heard the group’s new electrical sound. A week later, T Rex appeared in Manchester and nearby cities. Peel began work on a series of live recordings intended for nationwide broadcast by New Years Day of 1970. Marc finally realized the importance of mass exposure, and he agreed to sing. The group released another single, but its few fans criticized it because they felt like Bob Dylan in 1965, Marc should stick with folk songs. He was so angry he vowed never to release another single record. Marc also knew his hippie fan base didn’t buy many records. He had to have wider appeal. His group made another album, and for once Marc didn’t slur his words. He basically sang folk songs set to electric guitars. He and his band became a cult fixture

and were earning a good income when Marc and June married. It still wasn’t enough. He told June if his next effort for super stardom failed, he would retire and spend the rest of his life as a poet. At last his next effort bore fruit. They decided to cut the price of tickets to attract more people and they came. The group’s new style of music attracted screaming hordes of teenagers after they cut the ticket price. T Rex had arrived to dominate British pop music. One night, Marc put a little glitter on his eyes, and at the next appearance, hundreds of fans showed up with glitter on their eyes. And thus was born glitter or glam rock personified by the likes of Elton John and David Bowie. Marc and Mickey expanded the band and it made much better music than it had. By 1971, they were “poised for a two

year onslaught which would make them one of the most successful bands in the history of British music.” Marc and his band mates became some of the richest entertainers in the world. In 1971, Get it on (Bang a Gong) became the group’s only American hit, but they toured the United States because their popularity at home made crowd security increasingly difficult. Marc had to leave his beloved England because of high taxes. He had worked so hard to succeed, and in the end he was not able to enjoy the fruits of his labor at home. He and his second wife live in exile in California. Marc liked cars, but he had never learned to drive. Sadly Marc died in an auto accident and his wife was seriously injured. However, he knew he had done what people told him couldn’t be done.

News from the Extension Service

Vegetables in the Fall Crisp air in the morning and dew on the car windows remind me that fall is arriving and with it the impending end of the growing season. My observation is that although the early summer seemed to retard development with overcast, rain-filled days, many crops took off in July and August. Remember that a general rule is that many vegetable plants are simply trying to reproduce and if they lose their fruit that will spur them to produce more. So harvest regularly and don’t let fruit complete development affording you more produce. But how do you handle an abundance of lateproducing vegetable crops? Here is a brief rundown of some popular crops: Broccoli and Brussells sprouts: These “cole” crops do their best in cooler weather. If you have plants that have just started becoming harvestable, the plants should keep producing as the night temperatures cool. These plants will even seem to appreciate light frost, and the flavor can be enhanced by that frost. Once the main broccoli head is harvested, the plant will often try to produce secondary

flower heads, and those can be taken when the new mini heads are blue green and tender. Tomatoes: Leave them on the plants for about four to eight days after they turn red to fully ripen. Use sound, fully ripened fruit for juice or canning. Avoid over-ripened fruit for canning; use those for fresh consumption instead. Ripe tomatoes will keep best at 46 to 50 degrees. Harvest full-sized green tomatoes when frost is imminent. A few can be kept on the kitchen counter, but for large numbers wrap them individually in a sheet of newspaper and, if possible, store them at 55 to 70 degrees and check them regularly for ripening. Potatoes: Mature tubers should sit in the soil for one to four weeks after the plants have died back. Dig into a hill and if the tuber’s skin rubs off easily, it needs to mature a bit more or it won’t store well (but you can use them as “new” potatoes). For harvested tubers to be stored, cure them first at temperature between 45 and 60 degrees and high relative humidity (in a curing bucket or bin to avoid excessive drying). Store in a dark place with

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator

temperatures between 38 and 40 degrees, but don’t let them freeze. Root crops (carrots, beets, rutabagas, turnips, etc.): Dig only when they are full sized and you can often wait until after the first light frosts…but don’t wait too long. Cut tops back to half an inch for carrots and a half-inch to an inch for turnips and beets and let dry for a day or two before placing in your storage structure. By the way, parsnips may be left over the winter and dug in the spring. The cold treatment will sweeten them. Squash (winter): Mature winter squash have dull-looking skins that you cannot pierce with your thumbnail. Leave one-inch stem (or a three-four inch stem on pumpkin). Acorn squash can store for five-

eight weeks so use them first; but butternut and pumpkins, two to three months, and Hubbard types can keep for three to six months.

News from Win HCHS Poker Run Smart Start workshop Sept. 28 Pheasants Forever

The month of September provides a well-deserved rest for the hens. After the rigors of mating, producing 30 to 50 eggs before incubating an average clutch of 12, brooding young, and losing and re-growing feathers, the hens need a rest. In September a hen has reached her lowest weight (1.9 pounds) and her lowest body fat content of the year. Since the amount of body fat is a good indicator of overall body condition, the hen is in her worst condition of the year. Many believe winter months are the toughest times for hens, but the reproductive process often causes more stress. Hunting restrictions: With far from ideal weather conditions the last few years, some folks may wonder if restricting pheasant seasons or limits might help populations rebound. Research in Minnesota and Iowa, over a 20-year span, proved those restrictive seasons had no measurable effect on future pheasant numbers. Biologists made yearly state-to-state comparisons of pheasant number data in similar habitat and weather areas. During this time, Minnesota’s daily limit was one less and season length half that of Iowa. When severe winter weather reduced the population, Minnesota closed its season for four years. Iowa did not. Despite the differences, the two states had mirror image population trends. Minnesota was not stock piling birds by restricting harvest as they would have hoped. Instead, Minnesota hunters lost 2.4 million hours of recreation and 400,000 roosters in their bag. To learn more about Pheasants Forever in your area visit: or contact chapter vice president Dan Reed at 402-659-4951.

Great IA Treasure Hunt top 25 in HC While many people will be checking top 25 lists to see where their favorite college football teams land this fall, State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald has created a top 25 list of his own. “You won’t find any football teams on the list, but what you will find are names of people in Harrison County that have money waiting for them to claim,” Fitzgerald said. “If you don’t recognize any of the names, check our Web site for others.” The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt program has returned over $122 million in unclaimed property to more than 310,000 individuals since Fitzgerald began the program. “We get millions of dollars in each year,” Fitzgerald said. “We believe the best way to find people is to ask others in their community to help us. That’s why we are sending out the top 25 list.” Unclaimed property refers to money and other assets held by financial institutions or companies that have lost contact with the property’s owner for a specific period of time. State law requires these institutions and companies to annually report and deliver unclaimed property

Lo-Ma Panthers in West Harrison tourney Judy Adair For the Herald-Observer After a week of highs and lows, the Lo-Ma volleyball team ended the week participating in the West Harrison Tourney Sept. 18. Six teams, Nisnnabotna, Missouri Valley, St. Ablert, Charter Oak-Ute, West Harrison and Lo-Ma battled for the tournament title. Lo-Ma’s first opponent was West Harrison. The Panthers got into a groove early on and took a 12-4 lead before the Hawkeyes went on an eight-point run to tie. Lo-Ma came back strong and won game one 21-15. In game two, Lo-Ma again came out hard and cruised to a 21-13 victory. Lo-Ma would go on to meet the Bobcats of Charter OakUte in their second match. In game one, the Lady Panthers dominated the court with solid serving and good defense. The first game went to Lo-Ma 21-8. The Lady Bobcats showed some spirit in game two as they traded punches with Lo-Ma and topped the Panthers 21-19. Coach Hedger regrouped his team for game three emphasizing focus and communication on the court. The Panthers came out and controlled the Bobcats, winning game three 15-9. The next challenge for the Panthers was the juggernaut known as St. Albert. In the past couple of years St. Albert has given the

Panthers fits, and this year would be no different. In game one, Karen Hutson started the game with a kill followed by a block to put Lo-Ma up early. After that, St. Albert made sure that the Panthers would earn every point as the Saints came right back and scored several unanswered points, eventually winning game one 21-14. In game two, the Saints looked nearly flawless performing the bumpset-spike. When the dust had settled, the Saints were victorious by a score of 2110. St. Albert would end the tourney with three players on the all-tournament team. Next in line for Lo-Ma was the Lady Reds of Missouri Valley. Facing Missouri Valley for the second time this season, Lo-Ma was looking forward to avenge the loss handed to them at the hands of the Lady Red earlier. Game one was marked by long volleys that whoever blinked first, lost. Each time the Lady Panthers would score two points, Missouri Valley came back and scored three. At the end of game one, Missouri Valley had scored 21 points to Lo-Ma’s 15. In game two, Frisk served six straight points before Missouri Valley got the ball back. The Lady Reds continued to fight hard as they trailed 9-6. Going back and forth, the Lady Reds put together a string of points and bested the Panthers in game two winning 21-16. Lo-Ma’s final opponent of

Kaitlyn Lorentzen goes for the ball. Photo: Gene Esser the day was the Blue Devils from Nishnabotna. Again, Ms. Consistency, Frisk, went on a seven point serving run before the Blue Devils were able to get the ball back. LoMa led the entire game winning 21-15. In game two, the Blue Devils kept the game close as the Panthers eventually won 21-18. St. Albert won the tournament by going undefeated 50. Missouri Valley finished second with a record of 4-1 and Lo-Ma was third with 32. Making the all-tournament team for the Panthers were Shelby Marquardt and Karen Hutson.

The council went to the lagoon site and reconvened at 7:27 p.m. They reported that they were pleased with the final outcome of the project. Clark and Hartwig joined in the meeting at this time. Mayor Pro-Tem Hartwig took over chairing the meeting. Renea Anderson was not present at the meeting so the council moved on to item 8. Item 8 was permission for United Country Loess Hills Realty to close the south half of N. 3rd Ave. between 6th and 7th Street on 912-10 for an auction. The council decided to close the entire street since there weren’t any objections from property owners or the fire department.

Next on the agenda was Resolution 10-22: A resolution approving the City Street Financial Report. The clerk reviewed the report with the city council.

Item 10 was a change order for CDBG water retention and pond project in the amount of an additional $1,289.

ayes. Superintendent Muxfeldt was next on the agenda with a request for a snow plow for the black truck. He received a quote from Hawkeye Truck Equipment in the amount of $10,035.00. This type of snow plow would make plowing the snow easier with this truck. This is the same type of plow as what is on the 1998 truck the city just purchased so the plows would be interchangeable. The council discussed the request and stated that after last winter, a better plow on the 2nd truck would make sense. Motion was made by Moss and seconded by Crum to approve the purchase of a snow plow in the amount of $10,035. 5 ayes. Item 13 was Chief Smith to talk about educating and talking to citizens about their off street parking for snow. He would like to put something in the paper about it since it is only a couple of months away.

He said that there are quite a few homes without numbers and it is difficult for the police/fire and rescue personnel to find someone in an emergency situation.

Church ALICE MEYER Alice Lucile (Wallis) Meyer, 92, passed away Aug. 29. Alice was born Sept. 27, 1917 on Round Lake Island near Mondamin, to Walter K. and Francis Emily (Gee) Wallis. She was baptized into her faith at the Mondamin Church of Christ in 1928. She attended schools in the Mondamin area, participating in music, declamatory, basketball and 4-H. Alice graduated as Salutatorian of the Class of 1934 and went to Normal Training and then summer school at Colorado Teachers College, Greeley, Colo. She taught country school at Herring School

(near River Sioux) and in the Mondamin Public Schools over the next seven years. In 1943 she moved to California where she worked in the offices of Lockheed Aircraft during World War II. On June 6, 1946 she married Bryan J. Meyer of Missouri Valley. They resided west of Missouri Valley and farmed in the California Junction area for the next 40 years. Two daughters were born to this union, Rozanne and Julene. Alice was a devoted daughter, wife and mother. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and actively participated in churches in Mondamin, Colorado, California and Missouri Valley. She collec-

tively taught Sunday school and sang in church choir for over 50 years. She served as chairwoman for a church service group for many years and from 1984-2004 she managed the church-owned Adams Apartments in Missouri Valley. Alice was an avid gardener, planting large gardens well into her 70’s. She especially enjoyed her flower gardens and also took great pride in growing and sharing Big Boy tomatoes and burpless cucumbers. Upon moving to Missouri Valley in 1996 she could often be seen outside gardening and maintaining her yard. Though Alice was not formally employed as a teacher after being married, she prac-

Logan Herald-Observer September 22, 2010

ticed a lifelong love of teaching, serving as a 4-H leader for 20 years. She also tutored local students for many of her later years. Besides church choir, Alice shared her talent of music through solos at weddings and many, many funerals. Bryan and Alice’s love of dancing took them to many different communities to enjoy live band music and the many friends they made while dancing. They continued to dance as often as possible until Bryan’s death in 1994. Alice enjoyed being involved in community activities and events. Over the years she was a member of the JHM Club, Federated Women’s Club, Harrison County Republican Women,

the Community Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, where she served in several offices including president, and was superintendent of the textiles department at the Harrison County Fair for many years. She was also a fixture at the 4-H Apple Pie auction often taking home the grand champion pie. Alice suffered a stroke Oct. 20, 2008 and spent the last months of her life at Longview Home in Missouri Valley. Alice was preceded in death by her husband Bryan on April 2, 1994, her parents Walter and Francis; brothers Willard, Johnny, Gerald and Estal; sisters, Wilma Gochenour, Bernita Lewis and Vernice Chizek.


Survivors include her daughters Rozanne (Karol) King, Mondamin, and Julene Meyer (Richard Figiluzzi) Ft. Collins, Colo.; granddaughters Alisha King, Mondamin and Traci (Robert) Laurie, Ft.

Logan Herald-Observer September 22, 2010


Panthers top Cardinals 34-27 Nancy Voggesser For the Herald-Observer The Logan-Magnolia Panthers knew this week would be their first big test. The Panthers had not had the opportunity to play a full game yet, and had not encountered a defense that could stop their run game. No other team had been able to open up on the Panther defense by being successful in their passing game. All of these things happened Friday in Treynor and fans were treated to a fabulous game between two wellmatched opponents. Treynor started out the game trying to run the ball. Panther defenders Evan Mikels, Dillon Miller, Dominic Snyder and Quin Mann quickly shut down their ability to move the ball and quickly sent the Cardinals to punt. In the Panthers’ first possession, they kept their playcalling tight and on the ground. Nolan Oviatt, Marrick Loftus and Evan Mikels all touched the ball to steadily move the ball down into Treynor territory. With 7:43 left in the first quarter. Oviatt put the first points on the board with an eight-yard run. Levi Ettleman’s kick was good to put the Panthers up

7-0. The Panthers wouldn’t be up for long, though, as Treynor quarterback Mitch Godfrey took to the air, passing the ball successfully to Cole Rath, Eddie Fisher and Brock Meis. With 5:06 left in the first quarter, Godfrey connected with Tyler Woods in the end zone on a 35-yard pass. Alex Severn’s kick was good to tie the game. On the following kickoff, Mann fielded the ball and ran it up to the Panther 42-yard line to give the Panthers a short field to work with. The Panthers relied on their strong run game, with Snyder, Loftus, Oviatt and Zach Hatcher doing the hard work. With 41 seconds left in the first quarter, quarterback Nate Fender connected with Oviatt in the end zone on a 13-yard pass play. Ettleman’s kick was good to end the first quarter at 14-7 Panthers. The stingy Panther defense dealt the Cardinals a three and out in their next possession. Lo-Ma came alive again on offense, keeping steady on the run with a few passing downs to mix it up. Loftus, Oviatt, Hatcher and Mikels were difficult to tackle as Fender was successful in his pass to Mann. With 7:05 left in the half, Mikels powered through the last four yards

for his first touchdown on the night. Ettleman’s kick went wide right. Although Treynor’s next offensive series accrued first downs, a fumble gave the ball over to the Panthers. The Panthers were steady on the run, but at 2:27, Fender’s pass to Loftus was intercepted by Treynor’s Meis and returned 40-yards for a touchdown. Severn’s kick was no good to end the scoring in the first half, 20-13 Panthers. At the third quarter, Paul Hutson fielded the kickoff and returned his kickoff eight yards for good midfield position. Mikels then broke out strongly for a 17yard run to the 49-yard line. Oviatt, Mikels and Loftus kept the runs to the middle; then Fender connected with Ettleman on a 31-yard pass play into the end zone with 10:09 left in the third quarter. The Cardinals and Panthers traded possessions, and Treynor was able to come up with the next points on a 21-yard run by Trenton Geer. Severn’s extra point attempt was blocked by Mikels. The ensuing kickoff was fielded by Loftus on the fiveyard line who then returned the ball for six easy points in the end zone. Loftus’ 95-yard return with 2:14 left in the

Troy Sodders made an interception on the 8-yard line with less than a minute to go in the game and clinched the victory for the Panthers. Photo: Angela Winther quarter was followed by a good Ettleman kick, setting the score at 34-19. The Cardinals opened up the fourth quarter with an answer of their own, as Jacob Allen drove the ball 19 yards for a score. Chris Zimmerman was able to find an opening up the middle for the two-point conversion, ending the night’s scoring at 34-27. Although no more points were scored, the Panthers

and Cardinals played some of their strongest defenses of the night in the fourth quarter. Plagued by a slippery field, the Panthers had a hard time capitalizing on opportunities while penalties and big hits plagued the Cardinals. With 4:56 left in the game, Mikels came up with a huge sack to stop a good Treynor series. The Panthers chose to eat up the play clock on the ground, but were unable to convert a second first down.

Mikels’ punt pushed Treynor deep in their own territory. With two minutes left, both sidelines were tense, knowing that the end of the game would be decided on this possession. Godfrey led the Cardinals to two first downs before Lo-Ma’s Troy Sodders intercepted the football on a pass to Woods with 49 seconds left in the game. That interception effectively ended the game with a Panther win 34-27.

For the Herald-Observer

Sept. 16, the LoganMagnolia cross country teams competed at the Panorama Invitational. The course is one of the team’s favorites as it is mostly run on nature trails and through woods. There were two classes and the Panthers were in the large school class A for this meet. The two classes were run together in the same race and then scores were separated depending on class. Kendra Holcomb was the lone medalist for the team placing 17th in 17:33. Holcomb has medaled in every race so far this season. The top 20 medaled in each of the races. Hayley Whisney missed medaling by placing 29th in 18:06. Jacquelyn DeWitt was 57th in 19:43 and Alexa Meeker 68th in 20:18. There were 78 runners in Class A but 120 runners in the combined race. The boys team placed sixth out of 11 teams in Class A. They scored 161 points and placed behind Ballard (35), Gilbert (51), Adel DeSoto Minburn (102), Panorama (104) and Nodaway Valley (153). The Panthers defeated Jefferson Scranton (181), Carlisle (190), Collins-Maxwell-Baxt (203), Tri-Center (249), and Mt. Ayr (312.) Leading the way was sophomore Ellis Johnson placing 21st in 19:22. Joel Pixley was 26 in 19:28, E.J. Darnell 29th in 19:30, Grady Killpack 39th in 19:59, Wyatt Schultz 48th in 20:31, Alex Skeen 54th in 20:41 and Adam Thompson 70th in 21:37. There were 83 runners in their class with 150 runners total in the race. The junior varsity race consisted of 95 runners. Tommy Peterson was the first junior varsity runner for the Panthers. He placed 21st in 20:51. Following Peterson was Braden Rosengren 33rd in 21:25, Daniel Cox 37th in 21:44, Ridge Meeker 64th in 23:08, Alex Fanning, 74th in 24:30 and Owen Pitt, 75th in 24:42. The Panthers compete Sept. 21 at the Tri-Center Invitational at Arrowhead Park in Neola.

In conference play the Lo-Ma Panthers hosted the Ar-We-Va Rockets Sept. 14. Both the Panthers and the Rockets were looking for wins as the hunt for the Western Valley Conference championship is heating up. The first few points of game one would set the tone for the night, as Lo-Ma and Ar-We-Va recorded kills early. As the game progressed, neither team was able to get more than a point or two ahead of its rival. A string of successful serves by Kelsey Frisk gave Lo-Ma a little breathing room as the Panthers won game one 27-25. After game one, it was obvious that the team who made fewer mistakes would be the team to go home with a victory. In game two, Lo-Ma was able to capitalize on a couple of key errors committed by the Rockets and went on to win 25-20. The Lady Rockets came out in game three with an early lead and were helped out with a few key technical mistakes made by Lo-Ma and won the game 18-25. Game four looked like a different match as serving perfection continued for Frisk and Abby Foutch as the Panthers established an early lead and never looked back. Game four went to Lo-Ma 25-15. Statistically, Lo-Ma performed marginally better than the Rockets in serving 93 percent to 88 percent, but both teams had 78 percent success on the attack side. Leading Lo-Ma in serving was Frisk and Foutch who had perfect serving percentages for the night. Overall defense for the night was solid as the Panthers had 40 kills, 20 of those kills provided by Karen Hutson. Shelby Marquardt and Kylee Loftus added an extra punch at the net combining for 14 blocks on the night. Up next for the Panthers was a trip to Mapleton to play Maple Valley-AnthonOto Rams Sept. 16. This

Joel Pixley finished 26th at the Panorama Invite and 23rd at the Tim Thomas Cross Country Classic. Photo: Taylor Olsen Tim Thomas Cross Country Classic The Tim Thomas Cross Country Classic in Holstein is one of the largest and premier cross-country meets in the state of Iowa. It features two classes and gives a good look at the competition in the northwest part of the state. This course may also be the district site, so it is great to get some experie3nce on the course, said coach Pam Olsen. The boys junior varsity race had 147 runners with the first Lo-Ma finisher was sophomore Adam Thompson placing 40th with a time of 21:05. This was Thompson’s season best time of the year. The next finisher was Owen Pitt, a freshman, with a time of 23:28 and receiving 97th place. Tommy Peterson rounded out the junior varsity with 115th place with a time of 24:34. The boys’ varsity placed eighth out of 12 complete team with over 110 runners. The top 50 individuals medaled in each race and the boys’ team had three medalists. The top finisher for LoMa was Pixley at 23rd place with a time of 18:53. Second for the Panthers was Darnell at 32nd place with a time of 19:04. Three places behind was Johnson 19:11. In 63rd place was Schultz with a time of 20:26. Braden Rosengren was 84th in 21:45. All of the Lo-Ma varsity girls received medals for their race. Finishing first for LoMa was Holcomb with a time of 17:15 and earning third place. Whisney was 11th in

Alexa Meeker in the Panorama Invite. Photo: Taylor Olsen 17:58 and side-by-side were Meeker at 46th in 19:40 and DeWitt in 47th at 19:41. The junior high also had a successful meet as Victoria Johnson placed 18th in the girls race. The top finisher for the boys race was Brett Rosengren at 14th in 12:45, Justin Thomas, 29th in 13:55, Andrew Walski 43rd in 15:37 and Gage Killpack, 49th in 16:11. “The teams are getting stronger as five individuals recorded season best times for the year,” Olsen said. “Special recognition goes to Kendra Holcomb, Alexa Meeker, Adam Thompson, Grady Killpack and Alex Skeen who all ran best times of the year. We need to continue to work hard and improve times as conference and districts are less than a month away.”

Logan-Magnolia’s Shelby Marquardt blocks a tip try by Ar-We-Va’s Jessica Hausman in the Sept. 14 Western Valley Conference match at Lo-Ma. Photo: Todd Danner WHNS was a match not to be taken lightly as the Rams are one of the most underrated teams in Iowa. On the surface the Rams appear to be an average team as it has a few more losses than victories. Some of those losses for the Rams have come from the likes of Sioux City East and North (both Class 4 ranked teams), Class 3 ranked Algona and powerhouse Western Christian, the number one ranked team in Class 1. As game one started the Rams looked very crisp. If the Panthers were to compete, there wouldn’t be much room for error. Offensively the Panthers performed well but couldn’t keep up on defense with the Rams. Lo-Ma kept pace but at the end of game one, the Rams won 25-22. The Rams stepped up the pressure against the Panthers in game two displaying near technical perfection, returning the ball over the net and challenging the Panthers to return the ball. Lo-Ma kept game two close as the Rams won 25-20. Regrouping for game three, Lo-Ma managed to return the ball over the net better than game one or two. The

Rams made sure that Lo-Ma earned every point as in game three. Lo-Ma squeaked out a victory winning 25-23. Playing top ranked teams paid off for the Rams in game four as they totally frustrated the Panthers. Near perfection in both serving and returns stymied the Panthers as the Rams handed them their worst single game loss of the season, shutting down Lo-Ma 25-8. This night was going to be difficult to beat the Rams as they had a success rate of returning nine out of every ten volley’s over the net compared to Lo-Ma’s seven out of ten. “On this night our communication skills broke down,” said coach Jacob Hedger. “Playing a team that is really this good, communication on the court is essential.” Audrina Dickman had a good night offensively and defensibly with a 92 percent successful serving rate and six digs. Hutson and Frisk had good nights defensively as well, including 15 and 11 digs respectively, which this night was difficult to dig as successful as the Rams were on the night at spiking the ball.
