Mary Darling Editor Several LoganMagnolia seniors joined together Oct. 22 and helped make a difference, on national “Make a Difference Day.”
Twelve students from the senior seminar class, grabbed paintbrushes and helped paint the Mosaic group home on Fifth Street in Logan. Jennifer Payne, community relations manager at Mosaic, had the idea and provided the
chance to Lo-Ma students. “I thought it would be a good opportunity to have a special day where the students could get their community service hours while simultaneously doing good with millions of other
Americans,” Payne said. “Make a Difference Day,” is celebrated each year on the fourth Saturday in October. It was created by USA Weekend magazine, and SEE SERVICE Page 2

Kiwanis member Clint McDonald. “Besides the chili contest, there will be a costume contest for the kids with prizes for all.” According to McDonald, it’s a great opportunity to taste test a variety of chili recipes and render your opinion as well.

be trick-or-treating that night. For the children, there will be a costume contest SEE CHILI COOK-OFF Page 2
Needed water plant upgrades were on the Logan City Council agenda Oct. 10. Utilities director Scott Muxfeldt, reported to the council the circuit board at the well field quit working and he was told by the company that installed it, the part is not made anymore and no parts were available. It was necessary to replace the system for an approximate cost of $8,000. “That same control panel is at the water plant and water tower,” Muxfeldt said. “I recommend we upgrade all the systems. They will come out and give us a rough estimate of the cost.” Muxfeldt told the council many of the controls at the water plant are over 20 years old. He said everything is working OK now, but is concerned how long it could take if the system went out and needed to be replaced due to parts not available any longer. “It runs 24/7 and 365 days a year,” Muxfeldt said. “My guesstimate is about $20,000 to $30,000 to replace the systems.

COUNCIL: Needed improvements FROM PAGE 1 have a nice system now for a small town. It’s all automated, but it is outdated and parts are not available anymore.” The council discussed possible financing and placing the cost of the needed system improvement into next year’s budget. City Administrator Angela Winther told the council a water revenue bond the city has been
paying $90,000 a year on will be retired this year, which will leave a little cushion in next year’s budget. Southwest Iowa Planning Council reported seven applications had been received to date for the housing rehabilitation grant. Winther said more people are still interested in applying. The council appointed Rick Ohl to the Planning and Zoning Committee to fill one of the vacancies
and approved a Class C Beer, Sunday sales permit for Fuel-N-Shine. A resolution authorizing the transfer of funds for the fiscal year was approved. It will close out two projects – the aquatic center and the FEMA funds from the snowstorm. A building permit was approved for Herbert Clark, 321 Seventh St., for a 10-foot by 14-foot porch. The next council meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Oct. 24.

SERVICE: Lo-Ma seniors join day FROM PAGE 1 has turned into the nation’s largest day of volunteering. Thousands of projects are planned each year from coast to coast involving corporations, communities, nonprofit organizations, entire states and individual Americans. According to guidance counselor Jacob Hedger, a new class at Logan-
Magnolia – Senior Seminar – is designed to help students start making plans for post-secondary opportunities. Included in this class is the state-required financial literacy training as well as the school requirement to complete a supervised 10 hours of community service in the first semester of school. “This idea is to promote the ‘community’ portion
of our school’s mission to prepare students for the future,” Hedger said. “Being involved in a community is important, not only for personal gain but for the betterment of the community as well. Our school desires to have students that are not only ready for college and careers, but also to be active members of the communities they live in.”
RESTAURANT: Now open FROM PAGE 1 winning barbecued meats for four years winning awards at River City Round Up and the fair in Arlington, Neb., and had looked at a few buildings in Logan when their present site became available. They began remodeling in July, running into a few surprises along the way. Financing came from the Rural Electric Cooperative, Logan Development Corporation and Community Bank. “The original theatre doors are still here and the wall covering for sound proofing,” Chris said. “In the basement you can see where the floor sloped in the theatre.” According to Paula, smoking meats involves
much more than people realize. “It’s a learned art,” she said. “It all has to do with the cuts, marinade, injections, etc. You don’t just throw a piece of meat on the barbecue. Chris has been to a class at Iowa State and has been experimenting for a long time.” Chris said for an eight to 10 pound brisket, he begins about mid-afternoon injecting it with his special marinade. Right before it goes in the smoker, he puts his special rub on the meat and then it goes in over night. In the morning he sprays it with apple juice and wraps it in foil and waits for serving. “It takes about 12 hours total,” Chris said. He can presently fit about 12 in the smoker at a time.
According to Paula, top sellers so far are the smoked Rueben sandwich, brisket, the ribs and chili. “We sold out of the ribs Friday night,” Chris said. You will also find chicken, hamburgers, pulled pork and smoked sausages on the menu, along with a variety of side dishes, you order at the counter. You can chase them all down with a soda or a beer. Hours for the business are 11 to 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; 11 to midnight on Friday and Saturdays and 11 to 6 p.m. on Sundays. It is closed on Mondays. The restaurant takes cash only, no checks or credit cards. You can reach the business at 644-2070.

Who is that funny looking, short, bald guy with glasses?
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.
I ain’t afraid of no ghosts-just daily challenges The room was darkened by night. The only light, coming from flashes of lightning, as the room shook from thunder. Shadows bounced off the walls while rain pelted the windows. The perfect scenario for a great nights’ sleep. Even though I grew up with family members who believed in ghosts and insisted the closet doors had to be shut before going to sleep, I stand by our state’s motto of being a show me woman. If it’s not real, it doesn’t scare me, although I’ve owned a see-through shower curtain ever since watching the movie “Psycho.” Halloween costumes are never scary, unless of course, they’re still being worn in November. I love a scary movie, not the chainsaw massacre kind, but the ones you walk away from wondering if it could really happen. That’s the magic potion for me. It’s only scary if it really happens, like real life. It scares me when my phone rings and the caller ID says it’s dad’s rest home. They only call when he hurts himself, so it’s never going to be good news. Two of his teeth fell out while he was eating a vanilla wafer. That’s scary. Going to the dentist is scary stuff for a lot of folks but, even though the dentist,’s drill drill and three-inch needles are real, it doesn’t scare me. Not going to the dentist and having your teeth fall out is scarier. Finding out my gray hairs grow faster and stronger than the others is scary. Having single strands of hair grow out of the side of my cheek is scarier, especially when my daughter announces the fact in public and then proceeds to pull it out. Not being able to squat for longer than 10 seconds is scary, not being able to get back up is scarier. It seems as though it happened overnight – my knees are creaking more than the floor. Public restrooms can be scary. Trying to outsmart the automated faucets and dryers is scarier. I’m pretty sure I scare people as I wave my hands frantically over and under the thing to get it started. People who wear “masks” all year round and pretend to be someone they aren’t really scares me. Speaking of “masks” – I’ll be glad when Wednesday is here and political campaigns are over. Those who don’t take the time to vote should be scared because that’s the only way we have to keep creepy people from turning governmental affairs into a freak show. When I was a kid, we’d trick or treat with pillowcases, which would be completely full by the time we got home. The only reason our parents looked through it was to pick out the stuff they wanted to eat. It’s scary to think there are real monsters out there that only want to trick our children, instead of treating them with the opportunity to experience a fun-filled night of visiting their neighbors. Halloween night isn’t scary – getting on the scales after eating all the treat can by horrifying. Happy haunting – if you have ghosts in your closet, try calling my ghostbuster, p-r-a-y-e-r.

n case you’ve been wondering, the gold colored Mercury Sable with Polk County plates parked somewhere near the Odd Fellows Building in Woodbine each night is mine. Who am I? I’m the funny looking, short, balding guy with glasses you may have seen running around town with a Harrison County “Who’s Who” guide in hand. That would make me, Kevin Brown, the new General Manger for “The Woodbine Twiner” and “The Logan Herald-Observer.” My first day was Oct. 5. Since then, it has been a lesson in learning all about what makes Harrison County tick and what the newspapers can be doing to both refine coverage and look for new opportunities. I am originally from Des Moines although my mother would not be happy with me for writing it that way. She would have wanted me to say “East Des Moines – Lee Township Against The World.” My mother was a big believer in small towns having been raised in Dana (you get extra points if you have even heard of Dana today). My dad is from the Ringgold County area, having lived on farms in the Beaconsfield, Grand River and Mount Ayr areas. When they both moved to Des Moines in their early 20s because of few job opportunities in their hometowns and later married, they looked for a place to settle that offered some semblance of small town life in the big city. East Des Moines offered a world somewhat removed from the rest of Des Moines. My neighborhood nine blocks north of the Iowa State Fairgrounds was home to an early melting pot of people, incomes and diversity. There was one common denominator – we identified as a community and rallied around a very robust community newspaper called “The Lee Town News.” Subscriptions were sold exclusively by a platoon of housewives, like my mother, who annually went door-todoor to their neighbors and friends each year to sell new or renewal subscriptions. Of course, these visits also were a chance to share family news, recipes and gripes about “the big city.” It was from “The Lee Town News” I was first exposed to community journalism and what it means to be from a community. From there, I never looked back. My life would almost forever be tied to community and smalltown newspapering. I went on to be the first editor of my grade school paper (The Harriet Beecher Stowe Reporter), the editor of my junior high school newspaper (The Woodrow Wilson Chanticleer) and the editor of my high school newspaper (The East High School Scroll). I did all that, mind you, as someone who was raised extremely sheltered and noticeably shy. So shy, in fact, that when I told my folks I wanted to go to college for journalism, they made me declare a second major in accounting as a fall back. “You may see yourself as a reporter,” my mom, JoAnne, would say. “But, you are more like an accountant – analytical and quiet.” In college, it took me two hours of walking up and down in front of the office of the Iowa State University Police Chief to get up enough guts to interview him – and Regent university officers couldn’t even carry guns then! He was a nice guy, the interview went well, and a career was born. I served in every reporter and desk editor spot at “The Iowa State Daily” in my four years. That experience turned out to be vital as there was a recession the year I graduated. Ironically, it was my uniqueness as a journalist with an accounting background that landed me a job when most of my peers were having a hard time lining up work. I ended up working on the business desk for “Esquire” magazine and later being an assistant editor for its business group. Not community journalism, but it did give me a chance to experience life in the fast lane – and to know it didn’t work for me. You can take the boy out of Iowa but you can’t take
KEVIN BROWN General Manager kevin.brown@ heraldobserver.com 712-644-2705 Iowa out of the boy. After a few years, I chose to move back to the Midwest. I worked in towns such as Nebraska City, Neb.; Ottumwa; and for a small newspaper chain based in Des Moines. From there, I learned of an opportunity to buy a small paper in a suburb of Des Moines, Urbandale. In 10 years, my small company went from one paper and a small mom and pop printing plant to 11 newspapers and a home delivery unit called “Distribute It.” We had newspapers serving most of the western and eastern suburbs of Des Moines. I later sold the papers and moved to Fort Dodge where I entered the field of public relations. Later, I did that same line of work in Ames at ISU. In 2006, the newspaper bug bit again and I took a job as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. I was there for four years and had found a home there. But, having lost a brother in 2006 and my mother in 2009, I decided I needed to be closer to home. So, I took a job as publisher of the community newspaper in Adel. Later, I took a similar job in Sylvania, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo. Then, my former employers in Clarinda hired me back to work for them as part of Western Iowa Newspaper group and I am now part of your world. I like the fit. So, now you know how I became a journalist and the importance I place on community. Here are a few things you may not know: I collect cars. I own several – ranging from a 1955 Ford Fairlane with an original Thunderbird engine to a 1963 Studebaker Lark Cruiser Salesman Special. Most are stored and awaiting a chance to hit the road again. My other hobbies include bowling, tennis, reading (I am a big fan of Sinclair Lewis and John Updike novels), swimming and ping-pong. A friend and his wife in Clarinda helped me get healthier by getting me interested in the P90X program you see on infomercials. It works if you keep at it. I just can’t always keep at it! I am colorblind. My “gray” house in Clarinda is actually blue – “really blue” as I’ve been told. So, ad clients, fair warning on color proof ads! That is about enough about me. I welcome everyone to tell me what YOU think of the papers. Honestly. Let me know what is working well, what could be improved and what may need to be expanded. I have some ideas already but a true community newspaper does best when it listens to what its readers and stakeholders have to say. I may know journalism and how to explain a profit and loss statement in less than 100 words, but you folks know what YOUR papers need to be. Every community is different and every market is unique. What works in Clarinda may not work here. What is needed in Logan may not be the focus for Woodbine. Tell me what you want. Drop me an email (email@example.com), visit our Facebook page, whatever. But, let me know. What is here now is good – and award winning – but everything can always be more targeted and focused. Thanks for allowing me into your lives; I look forward to working with you all to make “The Logan HeraldObserver” and “The Woodbine Twiner” your unique, hometown news sources.

I don’t believe in ghosts, though my great uncle was rumored to be a ghost in Sioux City for many years. Still, unexplained things happen from time to time. My father inherited a solid constitution that, like other members of my family, allowed him to enjoy a long, active life. He was still combining corn at age 91 and he field cultivated at 92. Harvest especially interested him, because it was a protracted pay day for a season’s planning and work. As time forced him to shorten his workdays, my father often walked down our lane to check our progress. The sight of his lantern bobbing up and down was familiar on late fall nights. Sometimes he brought sandwiches my mother had made. We talked for a bit, and then my father returned to the house. The ritual repeated for several years until a year before he died. Three years later, I was combining west of the lane and noticed a lantern moving south. I assumed my wife Madylon was bringing sandwiches as she often did. The light stopped at the end of the rows I was combining and I eagerly
looked forward to a meal. When my combine was after 50 feet away, the light vanished. “Odd,” I thought. Of course, Madylon knew I was seeing things and I agreed. The light reappeared several nights later and Madylon teased me about my over active imagination. Two years later, she was riding in the combine with me as she waited to take a load of corn to the bin. That time, we both saw the light, as it stopped in front of us. When it vanished, I took great delight in saying, “I told you so.” When it happened again, Madylon began to worry. What had caused the light? I reasoned that since the lights appeared on clear calm frosty nights, a shallow temperature inversion might have bounced car lights from somewhere else. On one or two occasions, a car had driven down Murray Hill when the nearby light appeared. Our light appeared to bounce as if carried by someone walking. Maybe shimmering air associated with an inversion made the light bounce. When she wasn’t helping with the harvest, our

daughter made sandwiches we called, “Sarah Specials,” and she carried them down our lane. We watched her progress and eagerly waited to see what she had concocted each time. The tradition continued through her college freshman year. As we had done so many times before, Madylon and I watched her lantern move down the lane toward our combine. Then, we saw it. A second light mysteriously appeared about 50 feet behind our daughter. “Who can that be?” we wondered. As we worked our way east toward the lane, the two lights progressed south toward our position. The front light stopped directly ahead of us as the other moved toward it. We reached the lane
where Sarah stood and as we ate the sandwiches, Madylon asked, “Who was walking behind you?” Sarah replied “no one. I’m alone at the house.” “Yes, we saw another light. Someone was walking behind you.” She didn’t believe us at first, but her face slowly twisted as if she had heard a ghost story at an eighth grade sleepover. “Oh my gosh!” We returned to our work as our daughter bravely walked back toward the house. We never saw the light again. We would like to think my father was checking to see if we were alright, but that explanation seems unlikely. No matter. Our daughter’s expression that night was priceless.

News from the Extension Service
Frost on the pumpkin Southwest Iowa endured its killing frost on the morning of Oct. 19. Although for those of us just getting into ample ripening tomatoes, etc., it is a sad event, frost is a hallmark of the changing of the seasons. I, for one, am glad that I live in an area where seasons change. For those who keep track, the â€œnormalâ€? date of first killing frost around here occurs between Oct. 4 and 8 â€“ so technically this is a late year. And for the record, I count a killing frost as one when the temperatures fall to 28 degrees Fahrenheit or below, or more practically, as when tomato plants go to the big composter vat in the sky! The end of the growing season is the end of a lot of fresh produce from the garden. But some good comes from it as well. Fortunately for me, I have no severe allergic reactions to pollen. Hay fever sufferers are greatly relieved by the close of plant sexual reproduction season. Also, first frost correlates fairly well with the end of the bother of mosquitoes and gnats. Yes, a few still flit around briefly, but the summer season of these whining, biting banes of Midwest existence is at an end. But just as that is a relief, frost also is a signal to other insects to find a place to rest through the winter. Insects survive our winters in different ways, depending on the species. Some notable ones do it by congregating en masse and going into a static hibernation-like condition to survive the winter. Years ago, the annual movement of boxelder bugs was dreaded, because they covered the sides of homes and wandered into the house
Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator and cluttered up things. Then, about 10-15 years ago, a new critter showed up â€“ the Asian multicolored ladybeetle. They are native to rural China, and over generations have developed a winter survival technique of gathering together in large numbers and then squeezing into cracks and crevices of bedrock exposures, and any other areas that resemble that. Somewhere along the way, these Asian creatures found their way to North America, and found plenty to eat. You know how nature is, if there is plenty to eat and the environment is favorable, they reproduceâ€Śand reproduceâ€Śand reproduce more! The result is that by fall in Iowa, they often produce huge populations that do what nature tells them to: look for a suitable crevice and gang up in masses for overwintering. The problem is that the most suitable crevices around here are window sills, house siding, door frames and similar places. As frustrating as it is to have crawling visitors in your home throughout the winter, (most notably on warm, bright days), honestly there isnâ€™t much that can be done to prevent them. Sealing cracks in the walls will help in theory, but practically, that is a tall order. There always will be more cracks. You should know that any ladybeetles (or boxelder bugs or flies
for that matter) that are crawling or flying around in the winter have doomed themselves already. They will die from dehydration in a day or so regardless of what you might do. So remember (and I think I have said this before), donâ€™t spray them with an insecticide, rather, just sweep or vacuum them up and throw them away. Remember: console yourself with the fact that nearly every house has them. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 6442105.

Try to Avoid These Scary Investment Moves If you have kids â€” or even if you donâ€™t â€” youâ€™re probably aware that Halloween is fast approaching. Of course, you may find the ghouls, witches and creepy impersonations of celebrities to be more amusing than alarming, but, as you go through life, you will find some things that are generally frightening â€” such as investment moves that are misdirected or go awry. Here are some potentially scary investment moves to avoid: Investing too aggressively â€” In the investment world, hereâ€™s one of the fundamental truths: The greater the risk, the greater the potential reward. So, by investing aggressively, you can potentially achieve greater returns. But if you invest too aggressively, you can, quite simply, get burned and lose your principal Investing too conservatively â€” You canâ€™t invest with no risk. However, you can find investments that offer a higher preservation of principal in exchange for little or no growth potential. But if your portfolio is full of these vehicles, you may never achieve the growth you need to reach your long-term goals. Failing to diversify â€” If your portfolio mostly consists of the same type of investment, and a downturn hurts that particular class of assets,

youâ€™ll take a big hit. But by spreading your dollars among an array of investments you can reduce the effects of volatility on your overall holdings. Keep in mind, though, that diversification\canâ€™t guarantee a profit or protect against loss. Chasing â€œhotâ€? investments â€” By the time you hear about a â€œhotâ€? investment, it will probably already be cooling off. And whether itâ€™s hot or not, it might not be appropriate for your individual needs and risk tolerance. Trading too frequently â€” If youâ€™re constantly buying and selling investments to maximize your profits, you may end up actually minimizing your success. Frequent trading will run up commissions and other investment costs â€” and the greater your expenses, the lower your real rate of return. Plus, by always adding and subtracting investments to your portfolio, youâ€™ll find it difficult to follow the type of longterm, consistent, comprehensive strategy thatâ€™s necessary to help you attain your objectives, such as saving for retirement. Starting too late â€” As an investor, youâ€™ll find that time is one of your greatest allies. The earlier you start saving and investing for your goals, the better your chances of

attaining them. â€œSave early and save oftenâ€? may sound like a clichĂŠ, but itâ€™s good advice. Taking a â€œtime outâ€? from investing â€” Whether itâ€™s a market slump, a political trauma, a natural disaster or some other event, you can always find a reason to head to the investment sidelines for a while until things cool off, straighten out or return to what seems like â€œnormal.â€? Depending on your goals, not participating in the market may cause you to miss out on any opportunities that the market can present. At times, it can be tough to stay invested, but over the long run, a steady, disciplined approach can be a good strategy. Halloween comes and goes in a single day. But by steering clear of these menacing investment moves, you can help take some of the fear out of investing and make it a more productive experience.

Panthers fall short in bid for undefeated season; lose 35-16 to St. Albert Oct. 21 Nancy Voggesser For the Herald-Observer The Logan-Magnolia Panthers figured out early that it would take a huge focused effort to beat the St. Albert Falcons. Starting out on offense, the Panthers suffered their first, first quarter, three and out of the season. To make matters worse, it only took three offensive plays for the Falcons to find their way into the end zone on a 53-yard run by Matt Vermillion with 9:48 left in the first quarter. Josh Cochran’s extra point attempt went straight through the uprights to make the score 7-0. The Panthers answered with a drive started by Caden McDonald’s kickoff return to the 25-yard line. McDonald, Dominic Snyder and Paul Hutson rallied for two first downs before the drive ended with a fumble by Hutson within the red zone. The Falcons recovered the fumble to set up another early score. The Falcons took to the air with a second down pass to the Panther 24-yard line. Zach Powley knocked the receiver out of bounds to save the quick score. Gannan Cunard, Quin Mann, Grant Whisney and Snyder swarmed the runners, but were not able to keep the Falcons out of the end zone with 3:38 left in the quarter. Kellen O’Neill ran the ball two yards for the score, followed by a Cochran extra point that
brought the score to 14-0. The Panthers were able to put together a scoring drive, but were not able to get into the end zone during the first quarter of play, a first for the season. Hutson took the ball on the run for the Panthers, drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the Falcons. On the second set of downs, the Panthers were backed up on a fourth down and four to go; showing confidence in his running backs, coach Matt Straight called for another run and Hutson answered with a first down. With 10:49 left in the first half, Hutson gave the Panthers their first score of the night on a 13-yard carry into the end zone. Fender’s extra point attempt went wide right, and the score was set at 14-6. The resulting kick off went wide of the Panther expectations, as Tucker Culjat returned the ball to the Panther one-yard line. With 10:31 left in the half, Vermillion got the call to cross into the end zone on a one-yard carry. Cochran’s kick brought the score to 21-6. Despite a good return by Hutson, he and McDonald were unable to rack up enough yards for a first down, so the Falcons quickly got the ball back. This time, the Lo-Ma defense inspired by a huge pass break-up by Powley, were able to slow down the Falcons. Mann, Whisney, Cunard and McDonald kept the Falcons from scor-
ing and, along with a trio of Falcon penalties, retrieved control of the ball on downs. The Panthers only had seconds let to make something happen, and were unable to score again in the first half. The Falcons took the field on offense to start the second half. Powley, Mann, Logan Melby and Eric Brosnahan hit hard for the defense, but were unable to keep the Falcons out of the end zone. With 10:21 left in the third quarter, Cole Herr broke free on a 55yard touchdown run. Cochran’s kick brought the score to 28-6. The Panthers answered that score on their next possession. Hutson brought the kickoff clear up to the 38-yard line and took ownership of the ball throughout the drive, including a 44-yard first down run. With 7:03 left in the third quarter, Hutson capped his drive by breaking into the end zone on a three-yard run. Fender’s kick was good to bring the score to 28-13. The Falcons took on the next drive and, despite three first downs, played the odds on their fourth set of downs, giving the ball up to the Panthers at the 31-yard line on downs. Lo-Ma put together a fine drive to end the third quarter and into the fourth quarter. Mann, Snyder and Hutson got the carries, while Fender connected with McDonald on a pass.

Photo: Angela Winther After drawing the Falcon defense to convert to a first down, Fender handed the ball off to Hutson who once again scored with 11:25 left in the game. Fender’s kick went wide right, which set the score at 28-19. As the game was about to wind down, the Panthers handed the Falcons their first three and out of the game. LoMa followed with an excellent drive featuring Hutson, McDonald and Fender. After three first downs, the Panthers bet on Hutson to convert from a fourth down and nine yards to go, but Hutson was short by just two inches. The Panthers gave the ball over to the Falcons on the 20-yard line. Herr ended up with another double digit run with
Eric Brosnahan and Dominic Snyder tackle Cole Herr late in the fourth quarter. Photo: Angela Winther 2:50 left in the game. He took the ball 56-yards into the end zone, capped by a Cochrane kick to set the score at 35-19. The Panthers took one last shot at bringing the score gap closer, but despite a first down pass
to Justin Yost, the Panthers were unable to convert to a second first down. The Falcons kneed out the game. The Panthers host Central Decatur at 7 p.m., Oct. 26 in the first round of the playoffs.

HARRISON COUNTY SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS September 22, 2011 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Visitor: David Thien Tax Payment Problem Marilyn Gardner met with the Board to explain a situation that happened in the Treasurer’s Office. Marilyn had written a check to pay her taxes. Before the check had time to clear the bank, Marilyn had lost her checkbook and had to close her checking account. The bank said it would watch for the check, but mistakenly bounced the check. The Treasurer’s Office informed Marilyn that she would not be able to write another check to the Treasurer’s Office for two years as that was the policy for an insufficient funds check. The bank had called the Treasurer’s Office to say it was the bank’s mistake and not the fault of Marilyn, but the Treasurer’s office refused to allow an exception to the policy. The Board wanted Marilyn to speak again with the Treasurer Renee King as it was their understanding that Renee had sent Marilyn a letter reversing her decision and would allow Marilyn to write checks again in the office. Handwritten Warrant A handwritten warrant to SU Bank in the amount of $2,821.29 was approved on a motion by Utman, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Health Insurance Policy ..During an IPERS review, it was determined that the county needed a policy for those employees who receive a monthly payment instead of taking the county’s health insurance. Effective immediately, any employee who does not take the County’s health insurance and receives the monthly incentive payment, must submit a copy of his or her current health insurance card every July 1. Motion to approve by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Veterans Memorial Rick O’Neill met with the Board to propose a veterans memorial be erected in the Courthouse yard. The Board agreed and liked the proposed design. A layout will be given to the Board before any work begins. FEMA Representatives The Board of Supervisors met as trustees for the following districts: Soldier Valley, New Beck, Cut-Off Lake, Euclid, and Seig. On a motion by Utman, second by Pitt, Troy Groth, Sundquist Engineering was named as our FEMA representative and Elizabeth Lenz, Drainage Clerk was named Chief Finance Officer. Unanimous Approval.

Mr. Warner also reviewed the 2010 audited premiums. New Beck Drainage District Mr. Utman informed the Board that the Rand Petersen was beginning the process of completing brush control in their district and would like the New Beck Drainage District to complete their brush control also. The drainage clerk stated that a petition was not necessary for brush control but since this district has been inactive for so long that it would be a good idea. Annexing of additional land was also discussed by the Board. This also does not require a petition, but once again the Board feels that a petition would be beneficial. Mr. Utman will inform the landowners of the New Beck that the Board would like a petition presented for the annexing of land first and secondly brush control. No action will be taken until petition is received. Transportation Enhancement Project Liz Leddy requested a letter of support for a transportation enhancement grant application.

FY 2010/2011 yearly audit: Marv Molly from the auditing firm of Williams & Company, handed out the audit reports for everyone to review. M. Molly went through each page of the report, answering any questions that the representatives had. Upon final discussion, C. Carrigan motioned to accept the FY2010/2011 audit as presented. M. Rhoten seconded the motion. The next agenda item was for questions/concerns for Dan to address by the representatives: The representatives had no questions for Dan. Dan had a small list of items to discuss: (A) The JD755 is in Omaha for some major repairs. Dan had contacted R. Smith before sending the machine to Omaha. (B) A new access road to the landfill area is being constructed along with a wet area pad. (C) the ISOSWO/IRA Conference, which Dan attended was discussed. Resolution 2011-5 was looked at and discussed. This resolution is to establish responsibilities between the HCLC staff and the HCLC members, regarding the drop-box recycling program. This resolution had been tabled from the September meeting for some language change. Upon reviewing resolution 2011-5, S. Clark wanted more clarity regarding any possible penalty fee(s) invoicing, which the recycle facility has the power to impose. After general discussion, Dan will re-word the discussed paragraph and present Resolution 2011-5 at the November meeting for voting action. The month-end reports: membership assessment report; landfill activity report; drop-box recycling reports; misc. information/news articles were looked at. There were no questions. .The next regular meeting will be held on November 9, 2011. With no further items to discuss, M. Rhoten motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:00 p.m. J.

Protecting grain in storage By Greg Brenneman ISU Extension Ag Engineering Specialist In just the past couple of weeks, a lot of corn and soybeans went into storage with temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s. With grain this warm, moisture migration within the grain mass and spoilage can occur very quickly, even with fairly dry grain. With average daily temperatures now in the mid 40’s to low 50’s, newly stored grain should be cooled down as soon as possible. While stored grain should be cooled to 30 to 40 degrees for winter storage, the sooner we get grain temperatures down, the better. Fans might need to be run several times during the fall to get grain down to wintertime storage temperatures. The time required to completely cool a bin of grain depends on fan size. In general terms, a large drying fan will take 10-20
hours to cool a bin of grain. However, a small aeration fan can take a week or more to completely cool a full bin. In either case, it is best to measure the temperature of the air coming out of the grain to see if cooling is complete. It is also much better to error on the side of running the fan too long rather than turn it off too soon. If grain is dried down to the proper moisture and correctly cooled, it should store very well through the winter. Even so, it is best to check stored grain at least every two weeks during the winter and once a week in warmer weather. To do a good job checking grain, inspect and probe the grain for crusting, damp grain and warm spots. Also, run the fan for just a few minutes and smell the exhaust air for any off odors. For more details, order a copy of “Managing Dry Grain in Storage,” AED-20 from Midwest Plan Service at http://www.mwps.org.
